CNE High opened to those without power

Not being able to cook a decent meal for his family, watch television, or even take a hot shower led Stonelick Township resident J.D. Woessner to bring his family to the Clermont Northeastern High School Sept. 19.

“This is what the whole family needed,” he said while eating a hot dog lunch at the high school. “It is wonderful what the school district is doing and it shows they really care.”

After realizing that close to 9,000 people in Clermont County were still surviving without electrical power six days after Hurricane Ike’s 80 mph winds raged across the tri-state, CNE superintendent Neil Leist decided to take some action on his own.
