Power 100

I want to take a moment to write and thank you for the very kind words written about me in “The Power 100” article featured in the February 2009 issue of Cincy.

I am only one member of a magnificent team at Western & Southern Financial Group and I especially appreciate the way you captured my feelings, vis-à-vis my taking the credit vs. the team.

And to be in the company of the other honored power players in the Tristate truly is an honor.

Rising Star

I saw a copy of February’s issue and I was so honored for your recognition! This is a welcome surprise and I hope it sheds light into the growth and contribution of Latinos within our Cincinnati community.

Access TV

Your recent article “Cable Stars” (February 2009) was both entertaining and informative. Many folks are unaware of the important functions that Community Access Television serves and what an invaluable service it is to the community. Without Access television many communities would be without a voice and would, therefore, lack timely information about their local government, their schools and other important happenings in their area. Additionally, access stations offer training, camera equipment, editing equipment and studio usage, usually at no cost. The Coming At You show that you highlighted in your article is an example of what fun residents can have when the creative juices flow and the camera is rolling. Anderson Community Television proudly serves Anderson Township and invites its residents to learn more about how they can become a part of this priceless community asset.

In the February magazine, we misspelled the name of Margy Waller, whom we identified as a civic star rising in our Power 100 feature.
