They ride, they shoot & share to boot

Bobby Ruwe has a passion for riding, and he thinks shooting is pretty cool too. Ruwe is one of the original members of 1st Ohio Cowboy Mounted Shooters, based in Miamitown. Between Bobby and his wife, Barb, every office in the group has been filled by a Ruwe. Now, they help at larger events throughout the nation.

Cowboy Mounted Shooting is said to be the sport that most resembles the Old West of Wyatt Earp, Buffalo Bill, and Annie Oakley. It is among the fastest-growing equestrian sports in the nation and several local residents have been involved since nearly the beginning.

Out West, Jim Rogers created CMS in 1993 and passion for the sport quickly spread through the nation.

Riders sit horseback in an arena. They wear a double holster with a single action .45 caliber pistol on each side. Each gun is loaded with five blanks. Maneuvering their horses through a set path, the riders shoot at 10 balloons along the course. Heat from the blanks pop the balloons in a combination of thunder and smoke.

Director Rosanne Moore credits God for the  organization’s success, but to expand and improve programs that have made a difference in people’s lives, it’s time to move.

Over the month of June, the Crosby Township Fire Department made 49 squad runs; 35 were medical emergency runs while 14 were for fire/rescue. The staff, about 30 strong, dealt with structural fires and came to the rescue of residents experiencing strokes or hyperthermia.

On call 24/7, the staff  keeps the community’s safety its top priority. But this September, those same men and women will experience just a little bit of luxury with a $9,000 renovation to the kitchen in the New Haven firehouse.

“When the kitchen was first put together, it was kind of piece-mealed through whatever was available,” said Mark Garrett, a member of the fire department.

Scott Williams, 27, Miamitown has been indicted by a Hamilton County Court of Common Pleas grand jury for charges associated with the death of Jena Nicole Higgins.

On Thursday, July 24, Williams was indicted for two counts of aggravated vehicular homicide and one count of failure to stop after an accident.

More than a month ago, on June 16, Higgins, the 29-year-old mother of four, was found abandoned in the wreckage of Williams’ car on Kilby Road.

The night before, Willams had been drinking and was driving with a blood alcohol content of 0.121, said police.

Hitting at least 90 in a 35 mile per hour speed zone, Williams lost control of his car and crashed into two trees and then a utility pole, police charged.

The crash killed Higgins who was in the passenger seat. Williams fled the scene.

He was arrested Thursday July, 17. The arresting officers found him hiding in the attic of his mother’s house.

Bond is set at $300,000.
