Attorney Donates Money For Supper Club Fire Marker

CINCINNATI (AP) - A Cincinnati attorney has donated the full amount for putting up a historical marker at the spot of a 1977 disaster in northern Kentucky.

Stan Chesley represented families of many of the 165 people killed in the fire at the Beverly Hills Supper Club in May 1977.

A woman who began a drive to raise the nearly two-thousand-dollar cost of the marker says she wrote Chesley to see if he could help. She says she was delighted when he came through with all the money.

The two-foot by three-foot dark green, aluminum sign is expected to arrive in several weeks and will be placed downhill from where the nightclub was located.

    As much money as he made from the suffering of others,a $2000 marker is nothing more than pocket change.Beware of lawyers bearing gifts.
