REVERE SCHOOLS

Property for sale

BATH TWP.: The Revere Board of Education this week approved a listing agreement with Stouffer Realty for the sale of district property at 2301 N. Hametown Road.

The listing price for the 57 acres at the intersection of Hametown and Everett roads in Bath is $1.25 million.

The property, which had been part of the original Firestone estate, was purchased by the district in September 1998 from Merryweather Real Estate. The site, as well as the additional acreage that is now Firestone Trace and the Bath Baseball Park, had been purchased from John Chlebina the previous year.

Three years ago, the district offered the acreage for sale at auction, but no buyer came forward.

The brokers’ fee that the board approved Tuesday would be 5 percent of the sales price or $3,500, whichever is greater. The buyer’s agent would also be offered up to 2 percent of the selling price to a maximum of $1,667.

The agreement, which will be in force through Aug. 31, 2013, also permits the broker to market the property directly to the real estate firm’s existing contacts without the use of advertising media for 30 days.

STATE NEWS

Teens indicted

CINCINNATI: Six teenagers accused of brutally beating a man because they were bored were indicted Thursday and could face a harsh penalty if convicted.

A grand jury indicted the group of 13- and 14-year-old boys on one count each of felonious assault and aggravated rioting.

The Hamilton County Prosecutor’s Office is recommending to the court the boys be designated as “serious youthful offenders,” meaning that if convicted, they could be subject to time in adult prison if they aren’t successful in the juvenile system.

The boys are charged with beating a 45-year-old man Aug. 11 in the Cincinnati suburb of North College Hill as he was returning home with a six-pack of beer. Witnesses stopped the beating and called police.

The teens told police they attacked the man unprovoked because they were bored and looking for something to do.

The teens’ next court appearance is Tuesday, when a trial date is expected to be set. Two of the teens posted bond, while four of them remain in custody.

The victim is white and the teens are black, but police say they have no reason to believe race was a motive in the attack.
