For the past six months, EnterTRAINment Junction owner Don Oeters has been scouring the Internet searching the longest replica roller coaster in the world.
So far, he hasn’t found one longer than his 40-foot functioning roller coaster that sits atop the second-level overlook of his 25,000-square-foot model train display in West Chester.
The roller coaster, which is a replica of Coney Island’s Shooting Star, is one of the more impressive features of EnterTRAINment’s 1965 replica of the Cincinnati amusement park that is expected to be completed this Friday.
“It was a roller coaster that myself and my cousin rode 22 times in a day, so it brings back a lot of memories for me,” Oeters said. “It also brings back a lot of memories for anyone in Cincinnati who has been to the park and knows what the park was before Kings Island opened.”
After putting in the Shooting Star, EnterTRAINment Junction employees and volunteers have been working for the past six months on finishing the entire amusement park. Overall, the project cost more than $150,000 to build.
“There are quite a few people behind the scenes doing the electronics and all the special controls of the rides. Also, obviously, a lot of skill and craftsmanship has gone into building the rides and all the buildings,” Oeters said.
The replica, which covers about 1,000 square feet, also features working rides like the Lost River, a 4-foot tall Ferris wheel, Flying Rockets, the Tumblebug and a carousel. It also features the Wild Mouse family coaster, a train ride, a haunted house, the Skyride, the Whip and Cuddle Up.
In addition to the rides, familiar features include Coney Island’s front gate entrance way, Moonlite Gardens, the tree-lined Coney mall, picnic areas, Skeeball Arcade and basketball games.
One of the few historically inaccurate features of the replica is the trolley line that runs along Kellogg Avenue and stops at Coney’s front gate. The trolley’s did run to Coney Island, but it stopped in 1925.
EnterTRAINment Junction has had roughly between $11 and $12 million poured into it over the course of the five years it has been open. It drew more than 125,000 visitors in 2012, which was a record for the venue.

A 1,000-square-foot replica of Coney Island Amusement Park circa 1965 will officially open to the public at 10 a.m. Friday, June 21 at EnterTRAINment Junction in West Chester.
The exhibit, which was all built by hand from scratch, features Coney Island working replica rides from the park’s past, such as the Shooting Star roller roaster, the Lost River, the Ferris Wheel, Flying Rockets, Tumblebug, Wild Mouse, Sky Ride and the Lake Como train ride.

The Coney Island replica is located on the second-level overlook of EnterTRAINment Junction’s 25,000-foot model train display. It was the last section of unused space in the venue’s main train display.
When determining what to put in the space, EnterTRAINment Junction owner Don Oeters had to decide between a zoo, a circus or an amusement park. Despite it being the most expensive of the three, Oeters went with the amusement park.
“I remember going there in the late ’50s all the way up until it closed (in 1971),” Oeters said. “As a kid you didn’t realize how good of a park it was, but there were only three other parks in the ’60s that were in a suburban area of a big city that had larger attendance than Coney Island.”
The new Coney Island exhibit cost nearly $150,000 to build. In comparison, Oeters estimated that the zoo or the circus would have cost around $5,000.

One of the nation’s largest trucking companies is planning to shut down its West Chester hub and distribution center, leaving almost 300 workers in limbo.
YRC Freight has informed a local union that the company plans to close a significant portion of its local operations as part of a nationwide strategy to consolidate operations, according to a 132-page document YRC Freight sent to union leaders across the nation this week.
The plan would leave 279 local truck drivers, mechanics and dock workers with the option to relocate hundreds of miles away or be out of work by late spring, said union representative Butch Lewis.
“It’s devastating,” said Lewis, president of the Teamsters Union Local No. 100 in Cincinnati. “This has always been a profitable location. Our guys are shocked, and they’re very, very angry, too.”
Lewis said YRC Freight’s plan calls for all of the local workers to be given the option to relocate, with Indianapolis being the closest option. The document, obtained by The Enquirer, says employees would receive between $2,500 and $4,000 to cover relocation expenses.
“A lot of our guys have already been transferred into the city from Buffalo, Toledo, Detroit, Akron and Columbus” during other restructuring phases, Lewis said. “Now they’re going to have to pick up and go somewhere else in the company if they choose to.”
Lewis said he is not sure how many employees would look to relocate.
YRC Freight, a subsidiary of Overland Park, Kan.-based YRC Worldwide, confirmed in a news release that it’s working with union leadership on “realigning” its network. The company said it is working on scheduling a meeting with union representatives in April and expects the realignment to begin in May. The plan requires union approval.
Lewis said YRC has about 450 local employees, and the company plans to continue its local delivery operations. The proposal is to close the bulk terminal – used as part of the national freight network – at 10074 Princeton Glendale Road. Most of that freight would be redistributed to the Indianapolis hub, according to the document.
YRC has undergone several significant changes in recent years. In 2008, YRC Worldwide merged its two largest trucking brands, Yellow and Roadway. In 2011, YRC reportedly nearly avoided having to file for bankruptcy after struggling during the economic downturn. In recent months, the Fortune 500 company has restructured regional offices and leadership.
“The ongoing effort to optimize our network is a key part of our sustainability efforts as we reduce mileage and emissions,” Jeff Rogers, president of YRC Freight, said in a news release. “Better density means fewer empty miles and less emissions.”
YRC Worldwide is the nation’s fourth-largest trucking company in terms of revenue, according to Transport Topics, a publication of the American Trucking Association. The company generated $4.9 billion in revenue in 2011. UPS, FedEx and Con-way are the largest companies.
Hamilton County has among the highest number of commuters coming from another county in the nation, the U.S. Census Bureau reported today.
Forty percent of the workers in Hamilton County don’t live there, new estimates from the American Community Survey show. Nationally, 27.4 percent of workers commute outside the county where they live.
The finding underscores how the county remains the biggest economic engine in the 15-county Cincinnati region, despite recent population losses.
Among workers in Hamilton County, 188,113 live outside the county, according to 2006-2010 Census estimates. For example, 45,965 workers commute in from Butler County, 40,247 from Clermont County and 25,797 from Warren County.
Meanwhile, 66,994 residents of Hamilton County leave the county for work, or only 18.6 percent of the county’s total. The biggest group, 20,856, goes to Butler County, while 11,619 go to Warren County and 8,260 go to Kenton County.
“It is well known that Hamilton County draws a lot of commuters to work,” said Brian McKenzie, a Census Bureau statistician who studies commuting, in a release. The information on commuting and how Hamilton County compares to others “shapes our understanding of the boundaries of local and regional economies, as people and goods move across the nation’s transportation networks,” McKenzie said.
The new Census estimates also show that Hamilton County commuters:
Face a slightly shorter commute than people in other areas. The average commute to or in the county is 22.5 minutes, three minutes shorter than the national average.
Are more likely to drive alone than commuters nationally. The estimates show 79.3 percent of commuters in the county drive alone, or 2.9 percentage points more than the 76.4 percent national average.
Are less likely to take public transportation. Only 3.9 percent of commuters to Hamilton County take the bus compared to the 5 percent average nationally.
Very rarely ride a bicycle. Just 0.2 percent of Hamilton County commuters ride a bike to work, compared to 0.6 percent nationally.
The only way that Hamilton County commuters are “average” is in the way they carpool. The estimates show 9.2 percent of county commuters carpool, a rate that Census officials said wasn’t statistically different from the 9.7 percent national average.
Boehner makes visit on eve of State of the Union – On the day before President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address, House Speaker John Boehner of West Chester told workers at the Vinylmax LLC facility in Hamilton that the government needs to help the economy by passing a budget.

Saving Sarge at My Furry Valentine – Sarge, who couldn’t be adopted through a Pike County dog shelter (Ohio) since he was part pit bull, faced an uncertain future. After a final attempt to get adopted or rescued failed at My Furry Valentine in West Chester, Cincinnati area animal lovers stepped up and, officially, this past Saturday Sarge was finally adopted.
West Chester settles with bar patron for $265K – West Chester Township recently reached a settlement with a Blanchester man, paying him $265,000 for a May 2012 incident in which township police repeatedly hit him with batons at a West Chester bar. Surveillance video of the incident was released to the media in June. It showed three officers approaching Jeremy Lewis, 29, on the deck of Win, Place or Show Sports Bar & Grill in West Chester Township about 2:30 a.m. May 6.
Postseason brackets released for Ohio state tournament – Both the Lakota East and Lakota West boys’ basketball programs wrapped up the 2012-2013 regular season with road games this past Friday and now get ready to start postseason play. The girls’ basketball postseason officially tipped off this past weekend.
Update: Sarge was finally adopted on Feb. 16, a week after a Pike County, Ohio, shelter took him to My Furry Valentine in a last attempt to find him a home.
Approximately 4,000 people attended and a total of 227 animals were adopted at the My Furry Valentine main event at flexi USA in West Chester Saturday and Sunday.
The total number of adoptions are expected to grow this week after rescues, like Adore-a-Bull, perform home checks. The rescue, which saves local pit bulls and pit bull mixes, received 35 applications for adoptions during the two-day event.

It is also unknown how many pets were adopted at the other 50 satellite locations, which included shelters, rescues and pet stores throughout Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.
Last year, 100 animals were adopted at the main event location. The total of pets adopted last year, combined between the main event and satellite locations, was 266.
One dog, who was left behind at this year’s main event, was rescued.
Sarge, who couldn’t be adopted through a Pike County dog shelter (Ohio) since he was part pit bull, faced an uncertain future.
Stray Animal Adoption Program (SAAP), which is located in Newport, Ky., stepped up at what appeared to be the dog’s final hour and rescued him.
Meet Sarge, the shelter’s favorite dog
Pike Pet Pals, a non-profit organization that assists in transporting shelter dogs to approved rescues throughout Ohio, thought My Furry Valentine was the event that was going save the Pike County Dog Pound’s (in Waverly, Ohio) favorite dog.
When the dog was first brought into the pound by deputies from the Pike County Sheriff’s Office, he didn’t have a name and was emaciated.
Volunteers at the shelter fell in love with the dog, who they named Sarge. In fact, Sarge was so adored by the staff that he spent most of his time in front of the office instead of back in the kennel.
They all wanted him to find a loving home, but since it was determined that he was mixed bred with traces of pit bull, it became very difficult.
After dealing with shelter visitors, who were adopting pit bulls for the wrong reasons, the dog pound implemented a policy that made it nearly impossible for a pit bull or a pit bull mixes to be adopted.
Once the group found out about My Furry Valentine, they saw a way out for Sarge.
The hope was – if one of the 2,500 people, who attended the first day of the main event of My Furry Valentine, fell for Sarge then they could get one of the rescues on hand to perform the standard home check, which by policy the shelter couldn’t do themselves.
“He has been there (in the dog pound) the longest and if we can’t find him a home soon he will have to be put down,” Julie Mercer of Pike Pet Pals said at the event on Saturday afternoon.
“He is a very good dog. He loves other dogs. He just wants attention and to sit in your lap…he is a very good tempered dog. We just love him.”
Sarge breaks hearts at My Furry Valentine

Carolyn Evans, who organized, My Furry Valentine’s main event in West Chester this past weekend described her experience with Sarge as an “emotional roller coaster.”
Just a half hour after the first day of My Furry Valentine ended on Saturday, only a few volunteers remained and Sarge was the only dog left in the building.
The dog, who won the hearts of the volunteers at the event, wasn’t adopted nor was he rescued. And since the group, Pike Pet Pals, who brought him to the event was located in Pike County and needed to get back to help other homeless dogs, Sarge’s chances for survival appeared to be slim.
As tears were shed, volunteers of My Furry Valentine pleaded for Sarge’s life.
“Lots of people were stopping by to meet Sarge and I think we just all thought he’d get adopted. We were in shock at the end of the day,” Evans said. “We were trying to get them to stay, working out (a deal) if Sarge could stay with us.”
After hearing about Sarge’s story, Evans thought if no one adopted him that Adore-A-Bull would rescue him.
Adore-A-Bull co-founder Danny Kaiser worried if he had rescued Sarge that he wouldn’t get adopted since people approach his organization looking for pit bulls, not Sarge, who doesn’t look anything like one.
“He is caught in limbo,” Evans said. “There are 20 types of dogs that are mislabeled pit bulls. I believe that is where he falls. It is just a tough position for this poor dog.”
Eventually, Sarge left – without a home.
When Sarge arrived back at the shelter late Saturday in Pike County, his spot was taken. A stray dog, who had been tied to a tree and left by the shelter, had taken Sarge’s kennel.
My Furry Valentine volunteer Michael Lehmann, who along with fellow volunteer Teresa Scherl drove to the Pike County Dog Pound to fetch Sarge back, pets his new friend as Sarge’s arrival is announced at the My Furry Valentine main event in West Chester.

But, unbeknownst to the Pike Pet Pals, Evans had been working the phones – trying to find a rescue for Sarge.
Eventually, she was able to get ahold Caroline Rollins of the Stray Animal Adoption Program (SAAP). Rollins, who is a dog coordinator at the Newport, Ky., rescue, met Sarge at the event and said that she would like help him.
“We decided to take Sarge for a couple reasons,” Rollins said. “Sarge was in dire need to find a rescue or forever home. He appears to have a bit of pit bull in him, which makes adopting him out extremely difficult.
“Sarge has a wonderful personality … we were happy to help him.”
With Sarge saved, the only problem was that he was a long way from his rescue – about 2 and a half hours away to be exact.
Despite not being able to reach the Pike Pet Pals or the Pike County Dog Pound, My Furry Valentine volunteers Teresa Scherl and Michael Lehmann decided to make the drive to get Sarge back to the main event on Sunday.
The pair drove two hours, found Sarge, and drove two hours back.
When they arrived at My Furry Valentine that afternoon, Sarge’s arrival was announced over the loud speaker. The crowd cheered.
Sarge still needs a home
“He is currently in his foster home and doing great,” Rollins said. “He loves dogs, kids, all people, and even does well with cats and other small animals.”
If anyone is interested in adopting Sarge, visit www.adoptastray.com and fill out the dog adoption application.
Or meet Sarge in person, as he will be at an adoption event this Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Petco in Fort Wright, Ky.
Sarge is neutered, microchipped, vet checked and up to date on his shots. His adoption fee is $100.
NOTE:Adore-A-Bull Rescue worked with My Furry Valentine volunteers to help find the best rescue for Sarge. It has been brought to the attention of WestChesterBuzz.com, that the organization which helps hundreds of pit bulls throughout Greater Cincinnati find homes, has been criticized on its Facebook page. Again, while the organization did not rescue Sarge, it helped with Sarge’s rescue process.
