    Almost everyday I see something in my house that reminds me of Jeff -- the crown molding in my rooms, the Hansee Mobile in my backyard, my unfinished baseboard around my air conditioning vent where he said "do it yourself"  , the guitar pics and looper, my crooked TV where he said "fix it yourself" .  He helped me with everything, or got someone to help me.  Jeff was just a great, amazing man.  I know Jeff, Barb, Mike, Roger and Grandma CJ are up to something -- up there.  How amazing was it to have all of them in our lives!!!!  I know he's in God's hands now, but it was pretty great when he was with us.  RIP Jeff -- you are missed!!!

    We're all gonna miss that old boy. Won't be the same around the old hills of green without seeing that old red pickup or that stupid red guitar. The number of people who showed up for his celebration of life was a testament to a life well lived.
    Long live the KING.
    And Underdog.

    Not upset with anyone, those days are over. They are not barracks, and they have never been. Call them what they are  "Town homes"  This was never directed to you WWW your just gun shy. 
    This is very not true. True old time residents knows the history and all of us villagers should be very proud of the few " Town home"  owners that have taken the time, money, and labor to restore them . After all its this side of the village that makes the true so called historical district.  Just my two cents and has all knows I'll sure tell ya.

    Sorry, Nuttly… I certainly didn't mean to offend you, or anyone else that owns one. But if you take a look at US military bases built at about the same time, you would also see the resemblance.
    Mea culpa.

    I think if you look at that string of posts

    on this thread, I didn't call anything a "barrack", nor do I feel that way.  I believe Oddball (whoever that is) may have.
    Please don't hang that on me.

    Why stop the FBI investigation at the County Auditor and BoR, when the conspiracy clearly runs deeper than that? I heard a rumor that Trump was in on it too. The reason he's hiding his tax returns is that it will show all the kickbacks from Mayor Moore and his cronies!
    Side note, who else thinks we should let her back on social media? It's a lot easier to keep track of what her next conspiracy of the day is when she's blasting it on all available channels. Now that she has no outlet it worries me that I don't know what her next hair-brained scheme is.

    It is my understanding that all of the property valuation hearings have taken place and all of the filed increases were denied.  The person that filed the complaint with the Board of Revisions has made suggestions that they would file an appeal with the State of Ohio, as well as suggested that the FBI should investigate the County Auditor and Board of Revisions. The Board of Revisions is made up of Dusty Rhoads (Dem), Todd Portune (Dem), and Robert Goering (Rep).  The suggestion was that the County Auditor Rhoads, was somehow giving Greenhills Republicans past and present officials sweetheart valuations, as well as some 70 of their neighbors.  The further suggestion that the increases would be a windfall for the Village was also found in error as in spite of large proposed increases to these folks, the increased revenue to the Village would have only amounted to $2,678, an amount that was greatly surpassed by the expenses in time and effort to defend themselves against the filed complaint.

    There are no words to describe the sorrow that has been permeated my house since Jeff's passing. We keep laughing through the tears over stories of Jeff and his pranks against my husband and the constant retaliation. I worked with Jeff for many years on the GCSO. He was like a brother to Wolfgang and me. He was like an uncle to my daughters. (He always threatened to steal my youngest.) Telling my youngest daughter of his passing was one of the hardest things I had to do. Jeff was her buddy. He will be so missed in our lives. Words cannot express my sadness nor my gratitude for having known him. He hard a loud bark but was a big old teddy bear at heart. I will miss him terribly.

    WWW...... I would not have been able to say it any better myself. The Mayfests he organized were indescribable. As most of you know, I spent many years coaching our Knothole kids.What many do not know is he was always part of anything he could do.  The re-opening of Palma one asked him.  He asked us. So many people behind the scenes.  Jeff was always one of them.  He wanted no Glory or Fame.  nothing......for anything.  Personally wise we laughed-alot... but we butted heads too...but then smiled again later.
    Terri--- He always gave you the credit for allowing him to do what he did. In any aspect of life. we didn't see each other in the last couple years, but we always knew we were a phone call away. when we did, his bear hugs cracked my bony back.....i know he's laughing because he did it on purpose.  I am proud and honored to be called his friend.  Fair winds and following seas Dazed.........

    Dazed & Confused No More has had its' and ups and downs.  I think it is fair to say that has lost much of its' former place in the local online world to FaceXXXX and InstaXXXX and To-Wit since Junedale's inception back in 2004.  But over the years there have been some local characters who have joined us, but unfortunately passed before they should have, The Cmdr., GrandmaCJ, and Cicero come immediately to mind.  They are missed, yet they left some of their important thoughts behind here among the 14 years of posts.
    In the past few days we were saddened to learn of the passing of one of the more prolific and colorful posters ever to grace , Dazed & Confused who can now officially be unmasked as Jeff Hansee.  How many posts did he post?  Well, technically that is a really difficult answer to obtain, as you see "Dazed & Confused" was not his only handle and back in the day (truth be known) he shared a few personalities with some of his buds so.....he could have, but it might have actually been someone else.  Frankly, it could have been the Russians for all we know.
    In retrospect, Dazed and WWWarrior didn't always see eye to eye on some issues.  We may have let things get a little tense at times, but there was always a respect for what each other was at least trying to say or do.  I was always impressed and grateful for Jeff's efforts help others out, be a good friend, neighbor, citizen. His part in the Greenhills Community Service Organization, various fundraising concerts, Santa Claus, Pioneer Open and other beneficial events are not and should not be forgotten. I greatly feel there is owed much respect and gratitude, a job well done and a life well lived.  Jeff put up a honorable fight to disease that may have robbed us of his presence, but not of the results of his efforts.
    Making music became a particular passion of Jeff's in recent years and a Greenhills shout-out to local history was achieved in the naming of the group he played in, "Gil's Variety Store". While he lived down the road a ways, he "lived" in Greenhills and that was a fact.  Perhaps you have a memory or story of Jeff.  Some may be safe to tell now.  I'll let you be the judge of that.

    Board of Revision hearings begin on July 23rd for two weeks for the entirety of Hamilton County.  The hearings for Greenhills alone represent about half of that two week period.

  21. Kovu added a post in a topic Barber Shop to close after 80 years   

    I'd like to say some good words about the Greenhills Barber Shop.
    I received my first hair cut at the barber shop when I was 1.5 years old (1972). I still have the piece of hair that was cut off my head by Millie. Ray was employed and I soon shifted one seat to my right and had my hair cut by him until about 1999 when nature really began to win and I decided to just shave it off for good. Ray and Millie have been the only people to have had cut my hair.
    But, the tradition didn't start with me. My grandfather starting go there in the late 1950's. My grandmother had her hair cut by Millie. Then, both my father and his brother started going there after my father and mother moved into Greenhills in the mid 1960's on Burley Circle. My father worked at Willie and Kraus Engineering which was the location above the once UDF - above the old PNC Bank. My brothers all went there and only for a short time did my mother go there. She started to go to what had become the new Salon on the other end of the shopping center.
    My family had GREAT times at the barber shop. Looking at the dog pictures on the wall, reading magazines, and talking about school with Ray and Al, and Tom was a true pleasure. The vacuum hoses after a hair cut were epic. Nothing kept Ray from targeting my neck and watching me slink to the floor with a snake-like wiggle of laughter. I want to say that part of my life - or my social upbringings took place in one of those chairs. I learned a lot from all of the barbers not by talking, but by listening. There were a lot of stories AND WKRC-550 in that place. The radio will never die in those walls - "If walls could talk."
    Both of my sons first hair cuts were by Ray. we still have those locks of hair and a picture to remember it by. Propped up in that gray metal barber high chair was the very one I sat in some 30 years prior. So, four generations pass through and the memories are epic.
    The place will be missed. But, most of all will be the people, not the store. You can build any kind of store you want. You can put great fixtures in it, fancy chairs, gold combs and expensive clippers. But, the best part of anything like a place like you come to visit for four generations is because of the PEOPLE. People like those in that barber shop cannot and will not (at least by me) be forgotten.
    One last story in case he reads this or hears about him from someone else: I was 16 years old and headed into the barber shop. I sat down with Ray to get my hair cut. About halfway through Ray spins me around to cut the back of my hair. Officer Zettler (very-long-time family friends) comes in and cuffs me to the chair and leaves. With the hair cut completed and Office Zettler nowhere in site I just sat there as Ray tried to put lipstick on me like he had "always" tried to do when I was much younger.

    This landlord bills himself as a turn-around artist, saving failing shopping malls.  I'm no expert, but tripling the rent on an 80 year tenant to pay for maintenance does not sound like a good technique for accomplishing this.  Remember the Butt Shack left because this. landlord. did. not. fix. anything.  However if another barber shop does rent that space soon, Bryan's comment on rates might be valid...

    The barbershop said they've been losing money for years. They would have eventually gone out of business even if the shopping center owner didn't raise rates.
    I'd also be interested to know actual dollar values he was paying before and after the increase, especially compared to other retail spots in the area. I certainly can't make any judgement calls about whether the rate increase is appropriate without knowing these things. Gun to my head, I'm guessing the barbershop was getting a below-market rate for years. Can anyone actually say for sure, or is everyone just passing judgment based on assumptions?
