Hilltop 5K to

benefit veterans

By Christine Bryant

Staff Writer

The Columbus Westside Running Club

will host a 5K this summer - an event that

will benefit Hilltop veterans while providing

an opportunity for exercise and community

togetherness.

The Hilltop U.S.A. 5K run/walk will

take place July 7, and registration is currently

under way. Participants also will

have the opportunity to increase the challenge

and choose a heavy ruck run option

where runners and walkers must carry a

35-pound rucksack or backpack.

The ruck run option will earn the top

three male and female finishers special

prizes.

Tracy Schakett, who oversees membership

for the Columbus Westside Running

Club, says the 5K will be the first race on

Columbus’ newest trail and park, Camp

Chase Trail and Wilson Road Park. The

event also will feature an expo space that

will allow local businesses and services to

showcase their goods prior to the race

start.

All of the proceeds, plus $1 from each

race entry, will benefit Hilltop veterans,

with funds split evenly between VFW Post

4044 and the American Legion Post 532.

The Columbus Westside Running Club

held its first group run in January 2016.

“Since this time, the group has grown

dramatically,” Schakett said.

In addition to electing a board, the

group has established itself as a non-profit,

secured United Way Neighborhood

Partnership grants two years in a row, and

Sidewalk program

approved in Prairie

By Amanda Ensinger

Staff Writer

At a recent meeting, the Prairie

Township trustees approved the 15th

annual sidewalk program.

“This program uses an outside company

to repair sidewalks in the township,” said

Tracy Hatmaker, township administrator.

“Property owners can make a 10-year,

interest-free payment as part of their property

taxes to pay off the repairs.”

Hatmaker said that the township added

a component to the program this year

where the township inspects sidewalks

and has the residents repair sidewalks

deemed dangerous.

“All parts of the township are included

in this program and if residents want to

report a sidewalk they can call the road

department and they will inspect it,” said

Stephen Kennedy, township trustee.

Hatmaker said that the township has

been focused on asking for mandatory

improvements on the oldest sidewalks in

the township first, but added if they

receive a complaint, they will review the

sidewalk to see if improvements need to be

made.

“There are rules and guidelines for what

needs to be repaired,” Kennedy added.

“Just because a neighbor complains,

doesn’t mean the sidewalk has to be

repaired. It just will be inspected sooner

than it would have been.”

This year the township has allocated

$100,000 for the program and plans to

begin repairing sidewalks this summer.

The board also approved several payments

to enhance security of township

assets, including the township hall and the

new Galloway Road Sports Complex.

The board approved spending over

$14,200 to upgrade the township hall security

and fire alarm system.

and key pads with fobs for the township

hall, so we can more properly monitor who

is accessing the building,” Hatmaker said.

“Our fire system also is not up to code and

needs to be upgraded.”

Hatmaker said these changes will also

allow Grove City dispatchers to monitor

the building should any issues arise, something

they currently cannot do.

Additionally, the board approved spending

approximately $23,173 on splicing the

township’s fiber optic network to allow Wi-

Fi at the Galloway Road Sports Complex.

“This Wi-Fi access will allow us to have

cameras and phone service at the concession

stand,” said James Gant, director of

the community center. “Previously we were

told we could have Wi-Fi out there and

then found out we needed to do this in

order to have it.”

Gant also gave an update on when the

complex would open.

“Realistically it will open next spring,”

he said. “We were hoping for this fall, but

because we had a wet spring we haven’t

been able to get heavy equipment on the

field for grading. Once the grading is complete,

the seeding will be done, and it takes

year for the grass to grow.”

Officials are hoping the facility can be

used regularly by summer or fall of 2019.

The 2018 Westgate Home and Garden Tour is

June 9.

The tour, in its eighth year, embodies the spirit of

the Westgate Neighbors Association and the growing

focus on building a more connected community by

supporting resident-inspired initiatives like the

Westgate Farmers Market, Friends of Westgate

Park, Westgate Food Trucks Line Up, the Columbus

Westside Running Club, and Westgate Brews.

“This is the day we invite all of central Ohio to

visit our ‘it’s no secret anymore’ west Columbus

neighborhood. The up-close and personal tour is

timely for inquiring Columbus-residents, as many

new residents are discovering our character-rich,

affordable housing stock. They will immediately see

why we call Westgate unexpected,” said tour co-chair

Becca Rohner.

Rohner said this is not your average home and

garden tour.

“Be prepared to marvel at the creativity of our

homeowners and pick up affordable, relatable decorating

ideas for your abode,” she said.

The 2018 tour will reveal some of Westgate’s

unexpected appeal, including a 1928 Colonial

Revival home that has been lovingly restored; backyard

retreats with multiple water features, a garden

with antique roses —some dating back to the 1500s,

and even a putting green.

Balancing modern technology with architectural

integrity is another example of what makes homes in

Westgate so unique and desirable. But there is still

no shortage of fireplaces, original built in cabinetry,

porch swings, and hardwood floors you’d expect to

find a neighborhood where homes were built to last.

A portion of the proceeds from the tour fund the

Westgate Neighborhood Scholarship. The scholarship,

now in its fourth year, was established as an

extension of the group’s mission to help Westgate

thrive as it recognizes students who demonstrate

strong leadership skills and a commitment to community

service.

This year’s tours includes ten stops. It runs on

Saturday, June 9, from 2 to 6 p.m. Registration is at

The Westgate Lodge, 2925 West Broad Street.

Advance tickets are $12 and available online at

www.westgateneighbors.org and at the following

locations: Haldeman Cleaners (3115 West Broad

Street), Gypsy Soul Antiques (11 N. Westmoor). On

the day of the tour, tickets are $15 and can be purchased

Franklin Township first responders were recognized for helping

a fellow officer.

Township police officers responded to a call for backup on May

12 when Franklin County Sheriff’s deputies came upon gunfire

after attempting a traffic stop and the suspect fled.

“When our guys came on the scene, they didn’t know a gunfight

was going on,” said Franklin Township Police Chief Byron Smith.

“They did an excellent job.”

The trustees approved a resolution recognizing the officers for

their valor. The board also recognized the township’s medics who

rushed one Franklin County deputy to the

hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

The suspect was killed by police on the

scene.

“I commend all of you for your leadership

and management of your department,”

said Aryeh Alex, township trustee. “You

don’t come to work expecting to do this, but

everyone stepped up and did an incredible

job.”

The police and fire department also gave

and focus growth in a way that will support

economic competitiveness, improve resident’s

quality of life, and provide environmental

benefits throughout the city.

The first step is to educate the community

about the project and get each area to

go along with it. Currently the city has

more than 40 neighborhood and area plans

that cover more than 90 percent of the city.

Under this project, the area plans or

land use plans will be updated beginning in

2020. This is a project the city expects will

take five years. The Westland Area covers

both the city and the township.

First police officials announced that they plan to install a

Fire officials announced a new program to donate cribs to residents

in need.

“We have an increase in SIDS (Sudden Infant Death

Syndrome) in this community and people are not putting their

kids in cribs,” said Chas Adams, assistant fire chief for Franklin

Township. “Due to the income level in this region, people cannot

afford cribs and kids aren’t safe.”

Township medics plan to pass out cribs as they respond to

emergency calls and see that homes don’t have them. Adams said

the crib give-away is at no cost to the township.

The police department is also considering adding traffic cameras

to high traffic areas in the township. Among these locations

could be Frank Road.

“We are still in the exploratory phases, but the biggest complaints

we get are traffic and drugs,” Smith said. “We are trying to

address both by looking at high traffic areas that have the most

accidents. Nothing as been decided yet, we are still talking with

our attorney and seeing if this is something we want to do. We also

Residents ask for more police protection in Prairie

By Amanda Ensinger

Staff Writer

Residents are hoping for more protection from the

Franklin County Sheriff’s Office. At a recent Prairie

Township trustee meeting, residents asked for bike patrol

this summer throughout the township.

According to the sheriff’s department, while they are

hoping to have a bike patrol this summer, they first need

more officers to sign up. Officials say two officers must ride

together at a time to patrol the region via bike. Currently,

the sheriff’s office is trying to secure more officers for the

bike patrol before they can start this program.

However, residents did get some good news in the form

of reducing speeding in the region. The trustees approved

replacing a speed trailer that was struck last summer with

a new one. Costing approximately $8,850, the township

would only be responsible for $1,000 of the replacement

cost.

In other news, the board discussed equipment improvements

to the community center. Prairie Township

Community Center Director James Gant asked the board

to approve a new Upper Cycle and a Zero Runner for

approximately $14,000

“The Zero Runner received positive feedback from the

community center members who have used it,” Gant said.

“The Upper Cycle will help with the physical therapy

Doctor’s Hospital is performing at the center.”

Gant also asked the trustees to approve an athletic field

policy in preparation for the opening of the Galloway Road

Sports Complex. The new complex will have a variety of

multi-use baseball and soccer fields open to the public.

“As this park sets to open in a year or so, we thought it

made sense to have a policy in place,” Gant said. “We plan

to have several partnerships and feel we need to create a

field usage policy, as well as fees for improper use.”

Trustee Stephen Kennedy said that the policy would be

similar to other rules neighboring community have.

“Our policy is geared after a couple other policies

around town,” he said.

Officials plan to release the full policy on the township’s

website in the near future.

The trustees also approved spending $20,000 on

a grant for home improvements as part of the

Rebuilding Together project. The township, along with

AEP and Franklin County, each will contribute $20,000 to

the project.

Focusing on home repairs to 15 to 20 properties in the

Little Farms neighborhood, the national group will be

doing repairs to low to moderate income seniors to make

their home safer. Some of the improvements will include

roof repairs, HVAC, floor repairs and removing tripping

hazards.

The non-profit will be covering the majority of the

expenses of the project.

The township plans to contribute an additional $30,000

to the project to help with exterior home improvements,

including repaving driveways, repainting, landscaping and

other cosmetic improvements that can add value to the

home.

Officials hope this will be the first of many projects with

the group and hope organizers will consider improvements

the Lincoln Village neighborhood next.

Suicide prevention discussed in school district

By Dedra Cordle

Staff Writer

For years, June Brown stood on one side

of an imaginary doorway, unaware of the

signs of depression and suicide that can

exist in the young mind. Then one day, she

was hurtled through the opening when her

then 10-year-old son tried to take his life.

She likened the aftermath of being in a

vortex filled with anger, grief, disbelief and

immense guilt.

“How could I not know he was going

through this?” said Brown, a Grove City

resident whose name was been changed to

protect the identity of her child.

She began to think back to moments of

their daily lives for clues. Did he say anything

was wrong? Did he lose interest in

his activities? Was he being bullied? Did I

not pay enough attention? Are there signs I

missed?

She went to his school and requested to

speak with his teachers. She asked if he

gave any indication that he was struggling

in the classroom.

“They told me he gave them no indication

that he was struggling,” said Brown.

“He maintained his ‘A’ and ‘B’ grades

throughout; a near model student.”

She asked the clinical professionals at

Nationwide Children’s Hospital where her

son was being treated for advice. Upon

their recommendations, she started learning

anything and everything about the

signs of suicide. She began to share her

knowledge with friends who also have children.

“It is so vitally important that every parent

know what changes to look out for,” she

said.

Brown said it was equally important to

talk to them about it, even at a very young

age.

“We educate our children about drugs

and alcohol and sex, but rarely do we talk

to them about anxiety, depression and suicide.”

As a part of her continuing mission to

not only learn more about the topic, but to

give support to parents going through the

same situation, she attended a Signs of

Suicide Forum on May 16 at Grove City

High School. There, Brown was one of

approximately 40 adults in attendance to

hear from a representative with

Nationwide Children’s Hospital offering

advice and tips about behavioral changes

in their children.

Melanie Fluellen, a clinical counselor

who works at the Center for Suicide

Prevention and Research, said one thing to

know about depression and suicide in children

is that it can manifest itself differently

in each child.

“There are typical signs of depression

and suicide but what one warning sign

might be in one child could be different

from another,” she explained.

She said that is why it is so important

that parents take note of their children,

their activities and their behaviors and

compare changes they have noticed

throughout the days, weeks, months and

years.

“You know your child better than anyone

else,” she said. “If something seems different

to you about them, then it probably

is different.”

She said she often hears from parents

who ask about the moodiness of pre-teens

and teens.

“They ask, ‘Well, isn’t that just them

being teenagers?’” she said. “Well, some of

it is, but is it a change from their typical

behavior?”

She recommended that parents communicate

with their children, ask questions

and share aspects of their lives with their

children as well.

“Be open with them,” said Fluellen.

She added that it was important not to

judge their responses.

“If you tell your children they can ask or

tell you anything, you have to be ready for

what answer or response you might

receive.”

As for common signs of depression,

Fluellen said they are feeling sad or irritable

more often than not; sleeping or eating

less than usual; lack of interest in things

that once brought pleasure; withdrawing

from others; participating in reckless

behavior; engaging in self-injurious behavior;

performing poorly in school; physical

symptoms such as headaches or stomachaches;

and increasing use of alcohol or

drugs.

As for some warning signs of suicide,

Fluellen said they are talking to others or

posting on social media about wanting to

die or feeling like a burden; gathering medication,

sharp objects or firearms; expressing

unbearable emotional pain; giving

away prized possessions; suddenly becoming

calm or cheerful after a long period of

depression.

Fluellen said if any child presents these

behaviors, it is time to seek medical help.

“Suicide is preventable,” she said.

“Intervention is the key.”

The Signs of Suicide Forum for parents

was presented through a collaborative program

from Nationwide Children’s Hospital

and the South-Western City Schools

District.

Earlier this year, a pilot program was

initiated at four schools in the district —

Norton and Jackson Middle Schools and

Central Crossing and Franklin Heights

High Schools — where professionals at

Nationwide Children’s provide instruction

to staff and students so they are capable of

recognizing the signs of suicide and depression

in themselves and others. They do this

by teaching the ACT message where they

acknowledge there is a serious concern,

show the person they care and tell a trusted

adult.

April Weese, one of the district’s curriculum

coordinators, said during the forum

that they plan to have the Signs of Suicide

program at two additional schools next

year and possibly more throughout the

upcoming years.

As for Brown, she said that she feels

that this program is and will be instrumental

but knows that there are “a ways to go”

with educating staff, students and parents

about depression and suicide.

“It’s a start, but we cannot move quickly

enough.”

For more information about the signs of

suicide and depression, visit the Center for

Suicide Prevention and Research web site

at www.nationwidechildrens.org/suicideprevention.

To locate mental health

providers who address depression in children

and adolescents in your community

questions or under crisis, contact the

Franklin County Crisis Hotline at 614-722-

1800; or text 4HOPE to 741-741 for crisis

‘Solo’ undeserving of solo film

www.columbusmessenger.com

The behind-the-scenes production of

“Solo: A Star Wars Story” was troubled, to

say the least. When filming began early

last year, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller

were at the helm but they were abruptly

fired several months later due to ‘creative

differences.’ In Hollywood speak, that

means the studios were unhappy with

what they had seen on the dailies, started

to panic, and then let go of the people they

felt were ultimately responsible. This

action sparked a frantic search for an experienced

director capable of righting a sinking

ship. They found one in Ron Howard.

Shortly after Howard was hired, the

production began extensive reshoots and,

all told, the studio spent upwards of $300

million to bring a stand-alone film that

there was little demand for to life.

Typically, it does not bode well for

movies when the behind-the-scenes production

are immensely troubled, as this

one was: There is always this monster in

Frankenstein effect where you can tell

where the pieces were shoddily parsed

together. Remarkably, “Solo: A Star Wars

Story” does not come across as a monster

mish-mash movie but it’s not great either.

At least it’s cohesive from beginning to end,

and that is a true credit to its director.

Now that those kudos are out of the

way, it’s time to talk about some of the lingering

issues with Solo. This film, for all of

its good intentions, was not a necessary one

and it never sheds that stench of being a

blatant cash grab by Lucasfilm. To put it

simply, Han Solo did not require an origin

story — some characters are best left with a

little mystery — and it was set up for failure

from the start when the studios thought

any young actor today could be as magnetic

of a presence as Harrison Ford. While

Alden Ehrenreich tries his best, his portrayal

still falls short of being truly good,

just like the rest of the movie.

In Solo, it recounts the early life of the

loveable scoundrel with Han (Ehrenreich)

liberating a vial of hyperfuel from a group

of criminals. The intention is to use that

precious resource to buy his and childhood

sweetheart Qi’ra’s (Emilia Clarke) freedom

so they can purchase a ship and travel

across the galaxy.

As Han’s plans are apt to do, they go a

bit not as planned and he is separated from

Qi’ra. He vows to do whatever it takes to

come back for her.

Years later, Han is kicked out of the

Imperial Navy and demoted to an infantryman.

While fighting for the Empire, he

comes across a group of thieves led by

Tobias Beckett (Woody Harrelson) and

makes his pitch. Naturally, Beckett hates

him on sight and orders that he be killed

for desertion. While in the fighting pits, he

meets a Wookie named Chewbacca (Joonas

Suotamo) and his most lasting friendship is

formed.

Pet Corner

Pets of the week

Eliana came to the

rescue group with a

litter of three kittens.

They’re weaned now

and this beautiful

Abyssinian mix is

now ready for retirement

from motherhood.

Eliana is a real sweetheart. She is 1-

year-old, spayed, microchipped, FL/FIV negative

and up to date on vaccines. Eliana is up

for adoption through Colony Cats.

The Reel Deal

Dedra Cordle

Had the movie

just been about their

adventures, perhaps

it would be a better,

more engaging

movie; After all,

Han and Chewie

together is the best.

But it instead shifts to this band of thieves

and their mission to steal a shipment of

coaxium for a major crime syndicate. It

does, however, end with the fabled Kessel

Run.

As an origin story, Solo does not truly

work because, as stated before, it’s not a

necessary one. As a heist film, however, it

does work and the action that takes place

during the coaxium grab on the planet

Kessel is some of the best action sequences

in the Star Wars cinematic universe. It’s

humorous, tightly shot and lots of fun to

watch. Unfortunately, those descriptors

cannot be said for the entirety of Solo. It

starts slow, chugs along and then finally

picks up steam near the end when you’re

less invested, and I never thought I could

say that about a film starring the character

of Han Solo. Grade: C

Dedra Cordle is a Messenger staff writer

and columnist.

These furry friends are available

for adoption at local rescues and

shelters

Charles is a sweet

boy. This 7-year-old

mixed breed can be a

little timid at first and

will need some time

to get to know you

before he opens up.

Once he feels more comfortable he will be at

your side seeking love and attention. Adopt

Charles from the Franklin County Dog

Shelter.

FYI: 614-525-3647 or www.franklincountydogs.com

Pearl is a domestic

shorthaired white

and gray male. He

was living on the

streets with his best

buddy and brother,

Maestro when he

was rescued. He’s neutered, vaccinated,

microchipped, and tested FIV/FLV negative

and ready for a home of his own.

FYI: www.colonycats.org

Kate is such a cutie

pie. This 3-year-old is

very curious and

social. She is happiest

when she is by

your side and getting

all your love. She

seems to do well with

other dogs. Come meet sweet Kate today at

the Franklin County Dog Shelter.
