The Deification of Derek Jeter



The amount of hype preceding  every  All-Star Game is heavy, but  this year the hype was  horrendous. It was horrendous because it was accompanied by the  idolization of Derek Jeter, who is retiring at the end of the current season.  Not even the Great Bambino, the Sultan of Swat,  Babe Ruth, was idolized anywhere near the degree that Jeter has been.  The  idolization of Jeter spills over to deification. For some Americans,  he’s  Derek Jesus. He did not hit with the power of Ruth and dozens of other legendary sluggers. He did not play shortstop with the range and skill of a dozen others who have played that position. He did not run the bases with the speed of the fastest. He was good, very good, but what he was great at was being good for so long. For example,  he was a good base stealer for  so long that he holds the record for most steals in Yankee history. There were lots of Yankees who were faster than he was, but nobody ran longer. Except for an off-, injury-plagued year in his mid-thirties, he was always at the top of his game. It was his longevity that enabled him to compile the very impressive statistics that he has. Lou Gherig was known as the Iron Horse because of  his durability. Gehrig  played a record seventeen seasons for the Yankees, but Jeter broke that record and at  the end of the 2014 season will have played for twenty years, three years longer than Gehrig.

Jeter began playing for the Yankees in 1995, about when chemical cheating began. It was as prevalent as it was because it was profitable. Baseball was slipping into the doldrums in the latter part of the twentieth century. It needed a jolt and  steroids juiced it up. It became much more profitable for the players, especially for the juiced stars, but also for the complicit team owners. Then the pervasiveness of the chemical cheating was revealed in news reports and in tell-all books like Jose Canseco’s Juiced (2005), the subtitle of which was Wild Times, Rampant ‘Roids, Smash Hits & How Baseball Got Big. Baseball defended itself by transforming  baseball’s Mr. Clean, Derek Jeter, from the Anti A-Rod into the Shining Knight of Abstinence in baseball’s scandalous, dark night of steroids. His final transformation  was from the Shining Knight to The Captain, making him the god of  baseball. Jeter has been the well-paid poster boy for the most monopolistic team in American sports, a team located in the financial capital of America, where the dress code once called for pinstripes. George Steinbrenner was a stereotypical unscrupulous capitalist, but Jeter's deification has helped rehabilitate The Boss's reputation. The reason for Jeter’s deification was  not just his longevity but also his reputed integrity.  He has put up very impressive numbers in his long career without apparently committing the cardinal sin of modern baseball, without using  performance enhancing drugs (PED’s). He apparently achieved greatness without the chemical cheating that was so prevalent in major league baseball in the last quarter century.

Almost everyone involved in and connected to baseball has helped glorify Jeter—the fans, the complicit owners, the obliging commissioners; the adulatory New York sportswriters; and even the professional arbiters of the sport, the umpires. As reported recently in the New York Times (7 July 2014),  a statistical  study revealed that umpires, in calling of balls and strikes in regular games, favor pitchers  who have been selected for All-Star Games over those who have not by a margin of 17 percent. Based on my observation of the electronic balls and strikes tracking  available to me as a subscriber to MLB.TV, I suspect a study would show umpires in the calling of balls and strikes similarly favor All-Star hitters.  And at no time would umpires be more inclined to favor the All-Star Jeter than in his farewell year and in his final All Star Game. But umpires were  not the only ones on the field at the All-Star Game who favored him. The National League starting All-Star pitcher Adam Wainwright revealed how much even an opposing player  could get  caught up in the delirium of deifying Jeter.  After returning to the dugout, the somewhat giddy Wainwright  admitted to reporters that he had deliberately grooved a pitch to Jeter in the first inning of the All-Star Game. Wainwright  wanted   “The Captain” to live up to the very high expectations baseball fans have for him.  Wainwright subsequently tried to downplay if not retract his admission, but truth will out.  To vary the  famous Latin quotation in vino veritas (in wine there is truth), I would say in delirare veritas  (in delirium  there is truth), as the Oracle at Delphi was believed to have demonstrated.

Jeter is not only the anti-A-Rod, he is, at a subliminal level of  our national psyche, the anti-Obama. This does not mean Jeter is anti-Obama or even a  Republican.  As  close to his black father as he appears to be, Jeter is not anti-Obama. On the contrary, he admitted voting for Obama in 2012. Typical of remarks online to this revelation of Jeter’s vote for Obama were the following three comments on Free Republic, a conservative chat room: (1)“Normally a guy who plays it close to the vest and shuns controversy like the plague, Jeter blasts out his presidential choice. This Yankee fan feels confused, as a hero becomes just another dumb athlete.” (2) “A great baseball player, an economic moron. Life goes on.” (3) “Derek Jeter proves he’s on dope.” But contrary to the claim that Jeter “blasted out” his presidential choice, Jeter usually plays it close to the vest when it comes to politics and does avoid controversy like the plague.  He’s no dope. He knows it would be bad for his lucrative endorsement business and Jeter clothing line to offend either conservatives or liberals.

In the minds of many conservative white baseball fans Jeter  apparently represents the triumph of American values and the realization of  the American Dream. With no more than a high school education, Jeter mastered his physical craft and became, if not  one of the one percent,   at least extremely wealthy, with a large ocean-front mansion in Florida. In a poll conducted by Fortune Magazine of who the World’s 50 Greatest Leaders were,  Jeter came  in at Number 11. President Obama didn’t crack the top 50. Jeter is  not, like Obama,  a liberal Harvard law school graduate and former community organizer whom  many conservatives feel is, as president, leading the country down the road to socialized medicine, same sex marriage,  and Islam. If Jeter looked more like his black father maybe  there would be less idolization of him, and perhaps if Obama looked more like his white mother there might be less fear and hatred of him. But as it stands, the bi-racial Jeter and the bi-racial Obama occupy important if antithetical niches in the American imagination,  the one being deified, the other demonized. A central figure in the BALCO steroid scandal, Victor Conte, said there was no way in the world Jeter could have become the  ageless athlete he did without PED’s. The same has been said of David Ortiz the Red Sox slugger whose lackluster, injury-plagued career took off only after he was released by the Twins after no team was interested in trading  for him. After his release, he was signed  by the Red Sox. That may have been  when he began taking a PED, which not only improves a player's performance on the field but speeds up his recovery from injuries and slows down the process of aging off the field  Ortiz is widely believed to have been among those players who tested positive for PEDs in a test in which players were guaranteed anonymity. Was Jeter one of those who tested positive? It seems very unlikely but who knows for sure?

Jeter has been accused not only using PED’s but also of being gay or at least a switch hitter. He was featured in a cover story, “Jeter’s Swinging Years,”  in GQ (April 2011), a magazine that has been suspected from its inception of catering to gay readers. The photos of him in that issue are not only humorous but in light of its reputation, suggestive.

Jeter in GQ. Size does matter.

Good sport that he is, Jeter also appeared in drag as a player’s wife in a sketch when he hosted Saturday Night Live in 2001. 

Did Jeter discuss drag bunting on Saturday Night Live?

If it should turn out that Jeter is one of those who used some form of PED to achieve his longevity as a baseball player, and if it should turn out that he is not quite as heterosexual as all his gorgeous scantily clad white girlfriends would suggest, and if it is publicized that he voted for that devil Obama for president, his deification might grind to a halt. It might, in other words, be a whole new ballgame.

Just Say Nay to Kay the Slumlord

1416 1/2 Park Ave.

In 2011 the controversial Portsmouth businesswoman Kay (AKA Klara) Reynolds was reappointed by Governor Kasich to the Shawnee State University  Board of Trustees, where she will serve on the three-member presidential search committee. More recently, she was sworn in as the Vice-Chair of the Ohio Republican Party (ORP). In view of her reputation, as least among the faculty at SSU and among Tea Partiers, I'm surprised  she was chosen for  either of these two prominent positions. Reynolds  was and still is the owner of, among other businesses,  Scioto Rental Management. In her first term as a member of the Shawnee State University Board of Trustees (1999-2008), she was suspected  of a conflict of interest when she reportedly tried to interest the university in  one of her  troubled properties, an apartment complex  at 115 Boundary Street. At that time SSU president Clive Veri was pushing hard for football at the university, and the argument was made that 115 Boundary Street, overlooking historic Spartan Stadium,  would make  a convenient dormitory  for the team. But  Veri resigned under pressure in 1998, and he was replaced by James Chapman, who decided football was not financially feasible for the university, dashing whatever hopes Reynolds may have had of selling  or leasing 115 Boundary to SSU. She was stuck with the property and the headaches that went with it, not selling it until 2012.

A past president of the Shawnee Education Association, the faculty union, told me that Reynolds back in the late 1990s had voted against a collective bargaining agreement the union and the administration negotiators had worked out, saying that the SSU faculty were like children, and “even though you would like to give them what they want, you must sometimes say NO!” That apparently was also her attitude toward tenants, whom she was accustomed to saying no to, as for example, when they asked for their security deposits back. I was told by one of her former tenants at 115 Boundary that Kay, or Klara,  to use her business name, refused to refund his deposit even though his mother told me she had thoroughly cleaned his apartment after he moved out.

Kay  Boynton  Reynold's maiden name was Klara Rapp, but having been married twice, she uses a bewildering combination of first names, initials, and last names,  making it difficult to track her down in public records.  But generally, Klara is the name she uses in business and Kay the name she uses as a social and political figure. The mercenary Klara makes the money and  does the dirty work, so to speak, and  the high-minded public-figure Kay takes the credit and gets the kudos.  Klara takes the low road and Kay the high road. Read the statement she released when she was reappointed to the board and you would think she was a miracle worker and not the most divisive and obstructive member of that board. "I’m honored to be able to serve again," she wrote.  "My previous term we accomplished a great deal and made a number of decisions that I feel were critical in helping Shawnee State grow. It makes me proud.”

Is she also proud of what she has done as a landlord in Portsmouth? In the last fourteen years, for allegedly failing to meet their financial obligations, her tenants have been taken to court by Kay, or more specifically by Klara,  about 180 times,  including tenants from 115 Boundary Street. It appears she failed to meet her obligations as a landlord to keep up her properties.  I recently learned she owns a house, at 1416 ½ Park Avenue,  that is not  fit  for human habitation.  Actually, the house is not located on Park Avenue  but on the alley that runs behind it, and it is not officially numbered 1416 1/2, but rather as 1416, creating confusion.  The County Auditor's Office clarified things for me when they pointed out that  the parcel of land at 1416 Park contains two different residences, front and back, separated by a fence. How did this confusing arrangement of two 1416s come about? Perhaps only Klara knows. Kay took tenants of 1416 into court, but of the front or the back 1416 is not clear.

I made a visit to the back 1416, to  what I'll call 1416 1/2, one muggy morning with my friend Austin Leedom, editor of the Shawnee Sentinel.  When we arrived at the alley, a deranged-looking  man was poking through overflowing trash barrels. Barking dogs snarled at us from behind rusting link fences. The front door of the unnumbered 1416½ was boarded up with plywood, so we went to the backyard, which was strewn with debris, including a large, ratty sofa. Through the open  back door, I could see the gutted kitchen which had a large mattress on the floor. (See the photos above.) 

If some residents of Portsmouth think of  Kay Reynolds as a slumlord, some Tea-Party Republicans think of her as a RINO,  a Republican-In-Name-Only. Tea Partiers consider RINOs  as  unprincipled opportunists who are as big-government as Democrats. From a Tea Party perspective, Reynolds was being unprincipled when she  resorted to Section 8, which  is a New Deal piece of legislation passed by the Democratic-dominated U.S. Congress during the Great Depression. Under Section 8, the government  pays up to  two-thirds of  poor tenants' rent. To conservative Republicans, the government  paying rent for poor people smacks of socialism, if not fiscal insanity. But the clever RINO created a corporation called Choice Housing to take advantage of  Section 8. The corporation was described as a charitable organization, as if she was a philanthropist.   With the government paying two-thirds of the rent, there was less need for Klara to take tenants to court because they needed to pay only one third of what she charged for rent with the government paying the rest.  Here is the rundown on Kay's Choice Housing  that  I found online:
  
KayCharitable Organization

Voters are not children anymore than the faculty at SSU or her tenants are children. As a retired faculty member, I have an interest in the future of SSU, and I don’t think Reynolds should be on the presidential search committee or even on the Board of Trustees. If the Ohio Republican Party wants her as their Vice-Chair, that is their business, but what does that say about the Ohio Republican Party? As a presumptive candidate in the 2016 presidential race, Kasich is trying to move to the center politically to appeal to independent voters. But people like Kay Reynolds  may be just what Kasich and the Ohio Republican Party don’t need if they hope to win back the White House. They may end up getting more independents to vote Republican  but by abandoning sacrosanct Republican principles they may lose the votes of conservative Republicans.

From public records available on the internet (Appendix B), I have culled some two hundred names (Appendix A) from among those Kay brought into Portsmouth Municipal Court on one charge or another. Many of the names date back to the 1990s and at least some of them may have moved on and a few sadly passed away. With one exception, none of them challenged her in court, which they probably could not afford to do, but I am offering them the opportunity to set the record straight for posterity, if they can, to show they were not the deadbeats the official records suggest they were but rather Reynold's victims.   I invite any of them that might read this blog, if they are so inclined,  now that she occupies the number two position on the central committee of  the Ohio Republican Party, to Just Say Nay to Kay.

Hurrricane Klara: SSU's Perfect Storm

perfectstorm2
(This is a re-posting of  piece that originally appeared in River Vices on Oct. 25, 2005. I am currently writing another piece on Kay Reynolds called “Slumlord Klara,” in the writing of which I was reminded that, “The more things change, the more they remain the same.” Yes, the political hack is back on the SSU  Board of Trustees only now its Governor Kasich, not Governor Taft, she will be an embarrassment to.)

As if SSU needed any further dumbing down, Governor Robert Taft has appointed Kay “Hurricane Klara” Reynolds as chair of the Shawnee State Board of Trustees. It is the kind of stupid political move that has sent Taft’s poll numbers plummeting and almost guarantees that Ohio Republicans will be made to pay by voters in the next election.

Taft has already pleaded no contest to ethic violations. If only he could be put on trial for acting like a dodo, which is what he was in appointing Reynolds chair of the trustees. If anyone in the governor’s office could remember that far back, or cared, Klara Kay Reynolds was one of those trustees who conspired with university lawyer Stephen P. Donohue to remove the most popular and effective president Shawnee State has ever had, James P. Chapman, causing an uproar on campus and reinforcing SSU’s abysmal reputation in the academic world.

Reynold’s appointment caps a trend at SSU, which more than any other institution of higher education I know of shows the validity of the “Peter Principle,” which is “The theory that employees [and trustees] within an organization will advance to their highest level of competence and then be promoted to and remain at a level at which they are incompetent” (American Heritage Dictionary). With Hurricane Klara as chair of the trustees, Stephen P. Donohue as de facto president, Rita Rice Morris as nominal president, Michael Field as provost, and John Kelley as interim dean, we are faced with the equivalent of a perfect storm of incompetence and questionable ethics.

Rita Rice Morris has made a name for herself by jumping out of airplanes and joining in the beatification of real estate developer Neal Hatcher but not for being a strong leader. She lives in the infamous house on the hill, that distressed piece of property on Camelot Drive, that money pit that the trustees purchased at an inflated price from a doctor in distress, just as they had previously bought from local lawyer and politician John Thatcher at an inflated price a temporary president’s house, i.e., a piece of distressed property, on Franklin Blvd, which the trustees then took a $50 thousand loss on when they sold it to another doctor. Doctors and lawyers are among Portsmouth’s over-privileged who profit from public treasuries.

Donohue, the over-privileged’s defacto president at SSU, handled the Franklin Blvd. fiasco from start to finish. As an Asst. Attorney General for the State of Ohio, Donohue would of course have known whether the purchase of the Thatcher house violated state law, wouldn’t he? Hired in a stealth search and on the basis of a resume that would not have got him even an interview at an ethical institution, he then declined, once hired, to discuss his past history with a Daily Times reporter. Since he is rumored to have been fired from his previous job, we can begin to understand his doctored resume and his reluctance to be interviewed about his past job experience.

Provost Field, acting as interim president, was just the kind of obliging bureaucrat whom the over-privileged of Portsmouth and several trustees and Donohue wanted as the next permanent president of SSU, but Field’s performance as provost and then as interim president was rated very poorly by the faculty, and then the campaign to make him the new president was handled so incompetently by his handlers that he was not even among the three finalists chosen by the presidential search committee. There has usually been at least one trustee of integrity, and that is another reason why Field did not become the new president. Field ended up, with a hefty raise, back in the provost’s office, at the job at which he never should have been temporarily promoted from, according to the Peter Principle. As provost, he had clearly reached his level of incompetence, and there he will probably remain until he retires, for who else, given his track record at SSU, would hire him, and who given his willingness to play ball no matter how sleazy the game, would dare fire him?

John Kelley completes the perfect storm at SSU. Shortly before Kelley was appointed interim provost, when speculation was rife about who would replace Field as interim provost, the word was that the trustees were going to appoint “a faculty friendly” person to the position. Kelley may have been a trustee favorite, but he was not a faculty favorite. Kelley is liked by the faculty, considerably more than the provost is. But it is sometimes the case that a person can be liked but not respected. Kelley could be described as bi-institutional, which gives him advantages that he does not fail to take advantage of, but it is also a quality that makes him look at times as if he is working both sides of the street. It is the administration and the trustees, not the faculty, who appoint Kelley to his interim administrative positions, and they appoint him because he can be counted on to do the questionable things administrators and trustees want him to do, which is what he can be expected to continue to do as interim dean.

But who makes the impending storm at SSU frightening is, above all, Hurricane Klara. While President Chapman was working a miracle at SSU and making improvements and building remarkable bridges to faculty, students, and community, Klara Kay Reynolds and several other trustees were working to undermine and remove him. Hurricane Klara, with her undergraduate major in Home Economics at Ohio State, this political hack, considers herself pretty smart, as is evident in her pretentious but poorly written evaluation of President Chapman that was leaked back in July 2001.

While Chapman was initiating Interest Based Bargain negotiations that were unprecedented at SSU in their amity and progress, Hurricane Klara was leaking her evaluation on Chapman’s presidency from her offices at Scioto Rental Management. Her evaluation was passed on to me. I was told George Clayton, trustee chair, was one of the intermediaries. Only vanity can explain why she leaked this document when she did, for it threatened to alert me, as union president, among others, that we were about to be screwed, that the trustees and the administration were going along with Interest Based Bargaining in bad faith, that they planned to get rid of Chapman just as soon as they had milked him and Interest Based Bargaining for everything they were worth.

Reynolds had closed her evaluation of Chapman with a quote from Galileo. “You cannot teach people anything. You can only help them discover it within themselves.” I too can easily look up famous quotes, but I find another more appropriate Galileo quote, the gender of which I will change to suit my purposes. “I have never met a woman so ignorant that I couldn’t learn something from her.”

I had been warned by faculty with more experience than I had, that I and the union were making a mistake in trusting trustees like Reynolds by entering into Interest Based Bargaining. Because I had faith in the honesty and ability of Chapman, I went along, and lived to regret it. I even wrote a very positive account of our bargaining experience in the NEA journal Thought & Action  (http://www2.nea.org/he/heta99/s99p139.pdf ), but that was before I had discovered the depths of dishonesty and incompetence that characterizes the people in control of Portsmouth and SSU.

Below is the cover letter that accompanied Reynolds’ evaluation of Chapman. Notice the line, “We are in the mist [sic] of union negotiation [sic] and should present a united front.” She was in a mist, all right, the mist of ignorance and prejudice that political hacks operate in and that SSU has been cursed with from its beginning. Something Professor Kathleen Simon wrote (June 3, 2001) in response to a letter from Reynolds has relevance. “I don’t know what your intention was when you wrote your letter,” Simon wrote Reynolds, “but after reading it, I am even more fully entrenched in my belief that letting political appointees run a university is a really bad idea.” With a political appointee as chair of the trustees, and with negotiations looming, I forecast a perfect storm, with Hurricane Klara right at the eye of it.

Donuts, Obesity, and Diabetes



"The only healthy part of a donut is the hole.

"To underscore the nutritionally immoral tinge of the donut run, 
there  was a donut eating contest scheduled after the race."

"The large majority of those who participated in the Salvation Army Donut Run 
in Portsmouth this year did not run, they walked."

One of the depressing things about living in Portsmouth, Ohio, is the large number of people who are, unfortunately, both for themselves  and for the community they live in,  a financial and social burden. Portsmouth is located in a tri-state area (southern Ohio, Kentucky, and West Virginia) that ranks statistically as among the fattest regions in the country. A nutritionally poor diet and sedentary life style has a lot to do with the preponderance of overweight people in Portsmouth. Encouraging people to be more physically active is one of the ways to counter the epidemic of obesity and the diabetes that often accompanies it,  which are turning alarming numbers of  Americans into big basket cases. The baskets in this case are the medical and social services provided by public and private agencies that help the obese to cope.

As part of the program to encourage people to be more active, to run or at least walk more, several mini-marathons are held in Portsmouth each year. One of those mini-marathons, was held recently, on Saturday, June 14. Sponsored by the Salvation Army, and a little over three miles in length, the Donut Run coincides with National Donut Day, which  commemorates the Salvation Army workers who provided soldiers donuts during the First World War. They also serve who only serve donuts! But the  only healthy part of a donut is the hole. National Donut Day was a way for the Salvation Army to call attention to the good work that that religious organization did not only for soldiers during wartime but for the destitute and homeless during peacetime. National  Donut Day was good public relations for the Salvation Army. It has also become not only good public relations but good business for donut makers, such as Duncan Donuts, Krispy Kreme, etc.  But because unhealthy food such as donuts incontrovertibly contribute to obesity, donut makers are on the defensive. In associating donuts with mini-marathons and exercise,  as well as  with a religious group such as the  Salvation Army, donut runs  run circles around nutritionists. To underscore the nutritionally immoral tinge of the donut run, there  was a donut eating contest scheduled after the run.

The large majority of those who participated in the Salvation Army Donut Run in Portsmouth this year did not run, they walked. Most looked like they were not in shape to run one mile, never mind three. While nobody who walked looked obese, a good number looked overweight, which is to say they looked like most Americans. They looked like they were for exercise more in principle than practice, which is to say the  Salvation Army Donut Run may have served to salve some consciences. The young man who won the race looked in great shape, but he and about a dozen others, including a few young women, may have,  without realizing it,  served as shills for this somewhat carny con game for the Salvation Army and the donut industry. Those who conducted the Donut Run for the Salvation Army appeared to be at least  bordering on  obese and therefore a poor advertisement for either running or religion, but a better one for the Salivating Army.

"Those who conducted the Donut Run for the Salvation Army appeared to be
 at least  bordering  on  obese and therefore a poor advertisement for
 either running or religion, but a better one for the Salivating Army."

Perhaps the presence of the overweight Mike Jones in the Donut Run was the most damning indictment of it. He wasn’t running for his health; he was running for political office. In a shameless exercise in self-promotion, he was wearing a Mike Jones for Whatever T shirt. Jones had already showed himself suspect in  his shady financial purchase of Crispie Creme Donut Shop (click here), but he also showed himself utterly incompetent in the management of that business, which is why he is in politics. If Jones had half the number of customers as he had roaches in Crispie Creme,  he would have been rolling in dough. 

"Perhaps the presence of the overweight Mike Jones,
 in the Donut Run was the most damning  indictment of it."

Front Street: One for the Road



Motorcyclists on Front Street before it was resurfaced
In  April 2012, in River Vices, in the post “Front Street: Unsafe at Any Speed,” I warned  about the hazardous situation on Front Street. I argued that it was a potential fatality waiting to happen. One of the groups making it hazardous are the motorcyclists, like those in the photo above.

 Most of the bikers I’ve met on Front Street have been polite and considerate. Most bikers certainly  don’t want to cause trouble. They simply want to see and have their photo taken in  front of the Motorcycle Mural, which is  the most popular by far of all the murals. That mural has become mecca for thousands of bikers from Ohio and surrounding states, but not all those bikers are considerate and careful. Some of them are wannabe Brandos burning rubber.  Just last Saturday, about 6 PM, I saw two bikers take advantage of a lull in traffic to speed west on Front Street, roaring past the Motorcycle Mural at breakneck speeds. I also recently saw a show-off biker do wheelies with his rear passenger holding on to him for dear life.

Joggers passing staging used to wash and retouch murals

I don't know whether  the changes that are being proposed for Front Street, including making it one way, with a bicycle path, are feasible,  but  I do know that something should be done about the incompatible and hazardous multiple uses to which Front Street is now being put. What follows is a list of the principal users of Front Street:
  • Tourists, in automobiles, on motorcycles, in wheelchairs, and on foot.
  • Motorists who avoid the traffic lights on Second Street by using Front Street, which has no traffic lights and stop signs,  to get in and out of downtown Portsmouth as fast as possible, especially in the morning, as if they are late for work. 
  • Joggers, both individually or as part of a group, usually running in the middle of the street because of the planters obstructing the eleven foot lane next to the murals.  
  • Classes of grade school and middle school students on foot and sometimes on school buses.
  • The Portsmouth Garden Club. God bless the dedicated ladies of the Garden Club, who dutifully tend to the planters,  but the ugly, obtrusive planters are a plague that detract from the beauty of the murals and add to the hazards of Front Street. In 2012, I counted twelve planters. A few days ago I counted twenty-five. 
  • Portsmouth police officers in cruisers who use Front Street to travel to and from the Police Station and their clubhouse, which are  located at opposite ends of the Floodwall Murals. Since these cruisers sometimes go over the speed limit, especially in heading west, to the clubhouse, it is not surprising they do not issue traffic tickets to speeding motorists. In the all the years the murals have been there, I have walked Front Street for exercise at least once a day and in the thousands of times I've taken that walk I have never seen a motorist stopped for speeding, though I have seen many going over, sometimes well over,  the speed limit.

Haas Hassles Heather and the Kids


Do Some Porsche Owners Have a Screw Loose?

What follows is a timeline of the divorce and subsequent hearings and the trial to settle custody and child support issues between John Haas, who is now Portsmouth City Solicitor, and his wife Heather Haas. The timeline stretches ten years, from February 2004 to February 2014. Based on their past experience in court, the couple’s legal troubles are not  necessarily over. The complete, very long and complex public record is included in the Appendix below.

The Divorce 

  •             Feb. 16, 2004. Heather Haas  filed for divorce from attorney John Haas. She was living in Wheelersburg at the time, he on Circle Drive, in Portsmouth.  She was represented by Joan Garaczkowski, he by George L. Davis III and George L. Davis IV.
    ·         Feb. 17, 2004. Heather Haas filed for custody of the two children and financial support for them.  On that day she also filed for exclusive use of the family automobile, a 2001 BMW SUV.
    ·         Feb. 18, 2004. The Court  agreed to Heather’s request and granted her exclusive use of the BMW. On that same day the court issued a mutual restraining order, sending a certified letter to  Haas’  Circle Drive address. On March 4, that letter was returned after three failed attempts to deliver it.
    ·         March 3, 2004. Haas petitioned Court to have temporary shared custody of children.
    ·         March 18, 2004. Haas’ lawyers filed a motion to award him the exclusive possession of the BMW SUV.  After legal hearings before Judge Spears, John Haas was given exclusive use of the BMW, and Heather was to  receive $750 support for both children until such time as John Haas sold the BMW, which he was required to do no later than  November, 2004, at which time the child support would be increased to $950 a month for both children.
    ·         July 28, 2004. John Haas made a motion to reduce the child support to his ex-wife, and she filed a counter motion requesting the court to reject his  motion to reduce child support.
    ·         Aug 4,  2004.  Court rules that in the event Haas filed for bankruptcy  either party may then file a motion for a review of the support payment.
    ·         Aug. 7, 2004, a letter addressed to Haas was returned and marked not deliverable as addressed.
    ·         Nov. 9, 20. Haas and Heather were granted a divorce on the grounds of incompatibility.
    ·         August 16, 2006. The Court  ordered that the protracted dispute between Haas and his ex-wife over support payments be mediated through the in-house program of the Common Pleas Court.
    ·         July 27, 2007. Claiming  shared parenting—he had primary custody of daughter—was costing him more than he bargained for, Haas succeeded in getting child support payments reduced from $950 to $656 a month
    ·         Aug 19, 2010. Heather requests the court to end shared custody and give her exclusive custody of both children.
    ·         Aug 23, 2010. Heather charges Haas with failure to pay support.
    ·         Aug 26, 2010. Court orders Haas to appear in court for failure to pay child support.
    ·         Sept. 13, 2010. Letter to Haas about failure to pay support returned unclaimed.
    ·         Oct. 4, 2010. John Haas makes motion to have him and Heather evaluated psychologically.
    ·         June 9, 2011. Heather files another motion to have exclusive custody of both children.
    ·         June 1, 2011. The Court appoints a GAL, a guardian,  to mediate differences between plaintiff and defendant over child custody and support, each to pay $300 for that mediation.
    ·         July 15, 2011. The Court appoints GAL for children.
    The Trial
    ·         Feb. 2, 2012.  A retired judge from Pike County presides in trial in Scioto County Court, Domestic Division,  in case involving John Haas and Heather Haas to determine the custody of the children and amount of support of them by John Haas.
    ·         June 14, 2012. Court declares that Heather Haas will have residential custody of her daughter, as as well as of her son
    ·         Oct. 16, 2012. Haas files motion for protective order. [Against Heather Haas?]
    ·         April 3, 2013. Heather Haas is ordered to appear before Magistrate Michael L. Jones and show cause why she should not be punished for contempt of court.
    ·         May 7, 2013. Letter addressed to John Haas returned.
    ·         July 16, 2013. The court stipulated John Haas’ monthly support obligations as follows: he would pay $277  for his son and $524 for his daughter, in addition to paying for insurance,  these amounts to be withheld from his monthly salary from the city of Portsmouth where he was employed as city solicitor.
    ·         Dec. 31, 2013. John Haas was notified that he was 60 days past due in payment of his costs of trial.
    ·         Feb. 21, 2014. Heather Haas was notified she was 30 days past due in payment of her costs of trial.

Comment

The long history of legal and costly wrangling between City Solicitor Haas and Heather Haas, which began in 2004, went  on for a decade, and may not be  over yet. Their divorce  would normally not be anybody’s business but their  own. But Haas is a spendthrift public official and his chronic financial problems affected not only  his family but also the citizens of Portsmouth whose legal servant he is supposed to be.  The major interest in Haas’ previous  life, as Austin Leedom has documented,  was collecting expensive  pre-owned sports cars,  which he had a stable of at one time, as if he was Jay Leno and not a soon-to-be-bankrupt, small-town lawyer. Haas  apparently would not be caught dead driving a  Chevrolet, Pontiac or  Dodge. He had Grand Prix  taste on a Portsmouth Raceway budget.

Because of Haas’ aversion to paying child support, Austin Leedom dubbed him “Portsmouth’s  Deadbeat Dad of the Decade.” If Haas cared about  his  family half as much as he cared about  his Porsches,  maybe the marriage would not have ended in a bitter divorce. The first thing he and his wife struggled over was who would get custody of the family 2001 BMW  SUV. Back in 2001, the  manufacturer’s suggested retail price was about $47,000, depending on model and extras. In terms of cost, the lawyers Haas engaged, George L. Davis, III and IV,  were more like BMWs than Fords. When it came to everything except support for his children, Haas was a high roller. The money Haas spent or went in hock for in his ten year legal struggle  to short-change his family would  have enabled them to live comfortably during those ten years and beyond, but he nickled and dimed them to death. He Porsched them to the limit.

At one point in the trial Haas wanted Heather Haas to undergo a psychological examination. If she didn’t have serious psychological problems before she married him, she very well might have after a decade of mud-wrestling with him in court.

The mental and ethical level of most of the men who get elected or too often get appointed to public office in Portsmouth is notoriously low, as we will possibly discover again when the council appoints a replacement for Sixth Ward council president Steve Sturgill. Whether they are in a trade or a profession makes little difference. Haas is no exception to that rule. He showed contempt for the law as the defendant in his divorce trial--how many times did he refuse to accept letters sent by the Court? He also showed his contempt  in vowing not to respond to any public records requests that might end up making the city solicitor’s office  appointive rather than elective.  How ironic that Haas’ precursor as city solicitor, the equally legally incompetent Mike Jones, should turn out to be one of the magistrates who presided at Haas' trial. Knowing him as well as they do, Haas' peers wouldn't appoint him dog catcher.  That was why he panicked at the idea of the city solicitor being made an appointive rather than elective office.

The Court knew better than to trust Haas to pay child support on time. The child support was withheld from his paycheck. Imagine, the chief legal officer of the city could not be trusted to pay child support. The lengths  Haas went to try to  reduce or  eliminate child support included declaring bankruptcy. Politics is the next-to-the-last refuge for Portsmouth's ethically challenged failures and misfits. Their last refuge is bankruptcy.

DECISION AND JUDGMENT ENTRY: THIS CAUSE CAME ON UPON A MOTION FILED BY THE DEFT ON JULY 7, 2006, REQUESTING THE COURT TO MODIFY THE SHARED PARENTING PLAN THE PARTIES ENTERED INTO AT THE TIME OF THEIR DIVORCE TO NAME HIM THE RESIDENTIAL PARENT FOR SCHOOL PLACEMENT PURPOSES. ON JULY 28, 2006, DEFT FILED ANOTHER MOTION SEEKING TO MODIFY THE SHARED PARENTING PLAN AND TO MODIFY THE CHILD SUPPORT FROM THE AMOUNT THAT WAS DETERMINED BY THE CHILD SUPPORT ENFORCEMENT AGENCY DURING AN ADMINISTRATIVE ADJUSTMENT. DEFT WANTS THE CHILD SUPPORT MODIFIED DUE TO THE SHARED PARENTING. ALSO, THE PARTIES DID AGREE TO MODIFY THE SHARED PARENTING PLAN ALTERNATING THE CHILDREN WEEK-TO-WEEK BEGINNING ON MONDAYS INSTEAD AS IT HAS BEEN DONE AND THE COURT APPROVES SAID MODIFICATION AND IT IS SO ORDERED. ON JULY 31, 2006, PLTF FILED A MOTION TO MODIFY CHILD SUPPORT AND THERE WAS ANOTHER MOTION FILED; HOWEVER, THAT MOTION HAS NOW BECOME MOOT. IT IS ORDERED PLTF SHALL REMAIN THE RESIDENTIAL PARENT FOR SCHOOL PLACEMENT PURPOSES. THA ATTACHED GUIDELINE REFLECTS DEFT SHOULD PAY AS CHILD SUPPORT THE SUM OF $856.82 PER MONTH PLUS THE PROCESSING CHARGE. NO EVIDENCE WAS OFFERED REGARDING HEALTH INSURANCE COSTS OR CHILD CARE EXPENSES. DEFT IS REQUESTING A DEVIATION OF $200.00 PER MONTH DUE THE SHARED PARENTING PLAN. THE COURT FINDS SAID REQUEST REASONABLE AND WELL-TAKEN. THE COURT FINDS THAT PURSUANT TO O.R.C. 3119.23(D), DEFT HAS EXTENDED PARENTING TIME AS HE HAS THE CHILDREN HALF THE TIME AND HAS ADDITIONAL COST AS A RESULT. THE COURT FINDS THE AMOUNT CALCULATED PURSUANT TO THE THE ATTACHED GUIDELINE WOULD BE UNJUST. THEREFORE, A DEVIATION IS ALLOWED IN THE SUM OF $200.00 PER MONTH. DEFT SHALL PAY AS CHILD SUPPORT THE SUM OF $656.82 PER MONTH, PLUS THE PROCESSING CHARGE, PAYABLE THROUGH THE SCIOTO CO CHILD SUPPORT ENFORCEMENT AGENCY BY PAYROLL WITHHOLDING EFFECTIVE JULY 28, 2006. DEFT SHALL CONTINUE TO MAINTAIN HEALTH INSURANCE FOR THE MINOR CHILDREN AND AND UNINSURED MEDICAL EXPENSES SHALL BE PAID BY THE PARTIES PURSUANT TO THE PERCENTAGES OF THEIR INCOMES ON LINE 16 OF THE GUIDELINE. THE PRIOR ORDER REGARDING TAX EXEMPTIONS FOR THE CHILDREN SHALL REMAIN IN EFFECT. COSTS ARE ASSESSED EQUALLY TO THE PARTIES 611/4
