Update Tuesday March 20: Have a listen to my interview with Amy Burgess from Sunday's "Around Cincinnati" below.   

Original post Thursday, March 15: Rosie Red doesn't talk. So let's just say Amy Burgess, a local choreographer and actor, knows everything about Rosie from the inside out.

With Opening Day fast approaching, I asked Amy to come to WVXU-FM and talk about creating and performing as the Reds' popular female mascot for Around Cincinnati this Sunday, March 18, at 7 p.m.   (After the show airs, I'll put a link to the audio here.)

On this day 10 years ago, four Linz kids from Anderson Township were presented a $1-million check on “CBS This Morning” on Dec. 14, 2005, the day after winning “The Amazing Race.”

The Linz siblings -- Nick, 24; Alex, 23; Megan, 21 and Tommy, 19 -- had raced through 50 cities in 25 days on the reality show since the previous September. The kids gave $500,000 to their parents, Tom and Terri, and split the remaining amount after taxes among the four participants and their three brothers.

Where are they now? Here’s an update from their mother Terri:


Six years after Martin Marietta filed plans to build an underground limestone mine, the group opposing it, Citizens Against Blasting on Our Miami (CABOOM) found out Thursday it has been successful in its bid to stop the mine.

Hamilton County Judge Robert Ruehlman scolded the Anderson Township Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) for rubber stamping an earlier decision to allow the mine without even reading it. He said, "For these reasons, this court reverses the second decision of the Anderson Township BZA."

Martin Marietta could still appeal.

Anderson Township’s Heritage Universalist Unitarian Church is presenting the Labyrinth Arts Festival on Saturday, October 12 at the church on Newtown Road.
