History House, museum to see repairs

LOVELAND - A donation from the city will help keep the Greater Loveland Historical Society Museum dry.

City council agreed to contribute $1,300 toward roof repairs at the 1862 museum building and to install new gutters and downspouts at the JoAnn Richardson History House, which is used for a variety of community events.

Estimated cost of repairs is $5,409, historical society officials said, and donations from other sources already have been pledged.

Motorist, his rescuers to be honored today

FAIRFAX - A rescued motorist and eight citizens who came to his aid in March when his car plunged into a frigid creek will be honored today.

Fire, police and other emergency response personnel also will be recognized at the Fairfax Village Council meeting at 5903 Hawthorne St.

Charles Hickman, 48, of Madisonville, lost control of his car March 12 while traveling on Watterson Road at Bancroft Street. The vehicle slid down an embankment into the Little Duck Creek, where it flipped in 6 feet of water.

Four men went in after the car and turned it over while the others called 911.

Hickman has since recovered and plans to attend today's event, Police Chief Rick Patterson said.

City working to connect Snider Road
