marijuana businesses

The cultivation, processing and retail

distribution of medical marijuana will not

occur in the city of Pickerington, after

Pickerington City Council voted 4-2 June

19 to prohibit it.

Council President Jeff Fix said local law

enforcement recommended the prohibition,

due to the nature of it being a cash-only

business with an in-demand product.

“Our police force has made it clear to us

that all-cash businesses are sitting ducks,”

he said.

Council Vice President Mike Sabatino,

noted, “The reason that it has to be a cash

business is because of the federal government.

The police department has been very

vocal about having that as an enticement.

People can still use medical marijuana,

just not sell it or grow it here.”

Prior to voting against the legislation,

Councilman Tony Barletta commented

that research has shown medical marijuana

is a safe alternative to opioids and is

beneficial for many diseases.

“I understand the concern about it needing

to be a cash business,” he said, and

added the state and federal government

should reconsider that requirement.

The legislation passed 4-2, with

Barletta and Councilman Tom Romine

casting the dissenting votes.

INVOCATION

Continued from page 1

“There was concern on who would give

the invocation,” said Walker. “Since then,

I’ve talked with Crossroads Church.

They’ve offered to have one of their ministers

here every meeting of the year, if we

wish. Also, I’ve talked to the president of

the ministerial association for Lithopolis

and Canal Winchester. They’re supportive

as well.”

Amos told Walker she appreciated his

effort in asking local churches and organizations,

but there is nothing preventing

anyone else, Christian or non-Christian,

from also asking to offer a prayer or invocation.

Law Director Gene Hollins said there

are certain limitations regarding rules

allowing an invocation/prayer at public

meetings.

“There are some pretty good parameters

around how to do it without proselytizing

for one particular religion or one particular

denomination,” said Hollins. “If we went

forward, certainly we’d have to keep our

eye on the ball.”

Lynch said the committee also looked at

the logistics of coordinating an invocation/prayer–not

just what’s being said–

but also keeping the language as nondenominational

as possible.

“It has to be open to every denomination

out there,” said Lynch, “whether it be

•Council also discussed legislation

regarding small cell facilities and wireless

open it up to all these different religions so

we’re not being biased? I don’t believe we

can have one church being represented

thought and the consensus of the committee.”

Lynch felt if the ministerial association

coordinated the invocation/prayer, then

the city is relying on an outside organization

doing council business.

When Bennett asked if the bi-weekly

coordination would result in additional

work for council clerk and Finance Director

Amanda Jackson, Mayor Mike Ebert said,

“Yes.”

“We’re just on the first reading,” said

Hollins. “You’ll be looking at it for another

month before the third reading.”

Amos said she wanted to take into consideration

meeting. She told Walker she knew he

wanted closure on the issue, but felt there

were still too many unanswered questions.

look like.”

Councilman Jerry Dailey said, “I think

this is typical bad legislation. The Ohio

Municipal League told the legislature they

didn’t like this.”

He said there are already so many stipulations,

“I wish they had the guts to do

away with stuff like this and keep the right

of way here.”

The matter was referred to the Service

Committee for further discussion.

A financial look at CW athletics

By Linda Dillman

Staff Writer

Sports can be big business at the professional and

collegiate level, but at the high school and middle

school levels, the fiscal margin between revenue and

expenses is often slim.

Athletic directors tap into their creative side and

booster organizations to cover rising costs, let alone

pay for facility upgrades and renovations.

At Canal Winchester Schools, the tab alone for

transporting middle and high school athletes to and

from games during the 2016-17 school year was

$107,120 according to a June 18 school board report by

Athletic Director Pat Durbin.

“There’s a trend of an increase of our transportation

costs,” said Durbin. “In 2014-15, it was $70,000. For

2016-17, it was $107,000. That’s a 65 percent increase

in our transportation costs. I don’t expect that to go

down. In two years, we’re going into a new league and

we’re going to be doing a lot more traveling.”

The officiating costs for home games, meets and

matches for the same year was $52,162; equipment for

the same period was $54,634 and supplies–including

$6,388 for drug testing, $4,912 for awards and $7,136

for a golf invitational–were $48,107.

The district cost for 52 paid high school coaches,

coupled with 26 middle school coaches was $229,980

for 18 sports including football; cheerleading; boys and

girls soccer, golf, tennis, baseball, and track; wrestling;

volleyball and cross-country. This count did not

include 12 volunteer coaches.

The biggest slice of the pie was $42,914 for football

coaches. The smallest expenditure was $3,228 per

coach for each tennis team. Facility managers were

paid a total of $26,196 and facility supervisors received

a total of $4,368 in compensation.

There were 1,103 pay-to-participate athletes in

2017-18 that paid a total of $220,600 for one or more

sports. The PTP fees–$9,200–for 12 high school athletes

and 34 middle school athletes were waived due to

participation in a third sport.

“With transportation and coaches stipends, it’s

roughly $388,000” said Durbin.

Pay-to-participate offsets about $220,000 of that.

The board of education is making up about $166,000.

The biggest source of direct revenue came from ticket

sales.

or contact Karen Stiles at 614-270-5053.

“Approximately 50 percent of the revenue is coming

from football,” said Durbin, “and then it’s spread out

among the other sports.”

Nearly $97,800 in total revenue came from gate

receipts from nine sports–football, $48,107; boys basketball,

$18,567; boys soccer, $7,951; girls soccer,

$5,807; girls basketball, $5,621; wrestling, $4,992; volleyball,

$4,494; track, $1,509 and baseball, $750.

Other combined revenue sources–a craft show,

baseball sponsorship banners, weight room advertising

sponsorship, scorer table advertising and middle

school/Dietz Road signage sponsorship–netted

$46,500.

“We just secured a three-year, $5,000 per year that

they’re (sponsor) going to pay $15,000 up front to have

their name put on the stadium,” said Durbin. “Then,

after three years, open that back up for another sponsor.

We now have a new scorer’s table and instead of

just four sponsors, we now have 35 sponsors. We

raised enough money to pay for that scorer’s table.

There’s a lot of real estate out there that wasn’t being

utilized to generate funds.”

Durbin said sponsorship receipts go back into the

equipment fund in order to benefit all athletes.

Since 2012, the number of athletes increased by

239. Last school year, there were 23 more athletes

than the previous year.

As expected, the number of athletes participating in

fall middle and high school sports was much higher

than in winter or spring. In 2017-18, there were 595

fall athletes. In winter, there were 251 and 338 in the

spring.

“The total number of athletes is rising,” said

Durbin. “I don’t see that trend changing.”

Highlights of Durbin’s list of athletic department

accomplishments since he was hired include a realignment

of the Parent Booster Club, a $72,000 payoff

of the turf in the Mike Locke Stadium, new speaker

system for the stadium, a refurbished middle school

track, ticket pre-sale program, data-driven decisions,

seasonal coaches meetings, three new tennis courts

and a re-aligned gymnasium to maximize sponsors

and students.

“I’m confident, given the budget now and the partnership

with you all, we’re going to be able to do things

like a new locker room inside our football stadium,”

Durbin said.

Have you ever looked at an old tool,

machine, or utensil and wondered, “What

is it?”

The folks at Metro Parks’ Slate Run

Living Historical Farm displayed 18 such

items around the farm from June 19-24

and invited visitors to guess the name and

function of each. The items were all tools

used during the 1880s, which is the era

that Slate Run Living Historical Farm represents.

“The more unusual looking items were

hard for people to figure out,” said Rachel

Brooks of Slate Run Living Historical

Farm. “Some people identified a few of the

items after they carefully looked them over

and reasoned out their function and

whether or not they had any similarities to

modern tools.”

The task was more difficult for kids

because they do not have the same broad

reference points as adults. However,

Brooks said the historical knowledge of

some of the youthful visitors was impressive.

“One boy instantly knew what the pot

scrubber was,” said Brooks. (The pot scrubber

looks almost medieval as it consists of a

handle attached to metal chain mail.)

I am humbled to say that I was able to

name only 9 of the 18 items. Some of the

items I identified were: the ice cream scoop

made up of a conical metal scoop with a key

on top that turns a blade within the scoop

to release the ice cream; a boot jack, used to

help one remove

one’s boots; a root

cutter, which is a

machine with a hand

crank that cuts carrots,

turnips and

beets; an apple butter

stirrer; and a

potato grader that

was used to sort

potatoes.

it. One turns the handle and the small

potatoes fall through into a pan. The larger

potatoes that remained in the barrel were

kept for human consumption or to be sold.

The small taters were fed to the hogs

because they would not bring much money

at the market. Hence the saying, “Small

potatoes.”

Mike Huels of Slate Run Living

Historical Farm said potatoes were not a

big crop in Central Ohio in the 1880s.

“There’s too much clay in the soil for

potatoes,” said Huels. “Northwest Ohio,

where the ground was more mucky, produced

more potatoes.

The items displayed for the guessing

game at Slate Run Living Historical Farm

were all commonly used in the 1880s and

were considered state-of-the-art technology

for their time. Once essential tools, now

they are, for the most part, gone for all

practical purposes. It makes one wonder

what every day items that we use now will

be replaced and disappear. The typewriter

seen, come to mind.

No vaping allowed for Pickerington athletes

Also, school district’s

special education staff

working together to help

their students achieve

By Lori Smith

Staff Writer

In following with the current trends,

student athletes in the Pickerington school

district will soon be prohibited from using

e-cigarettes.

At the June 25 meeting of the

Pickerington Board of Education, the board

heard the second reading of changes to the

2018-19 athletic handbook, which include

new stipulations for vaping and juuling,

which are types of e-cigarettes.

According to the Centers for Disease

Control and Prevention (CDC), e-cigarettes

are now the most commonly used tobacco

product among youth.

E-cigarettes produce an aerosol by heating

a liquid that usually contains nicotine,

flavorings and other chemicals.

Although some look like regular cigarettes,

others resemble pens, USB sticks

and other everyday items.

They can also be used to deliver marijuana

and other drugs.

According to the CDC, in 2016, more

than 2 million U.S. middle and high school

students reported using e-cigarettes in the

past 30 days, including 4.3 percent of all

middle school students and 11.3 percent of

all high school students.

With the new stipulations in the 2018-

19 athletic handbook, vaping/juuling will

be treated like the use of alcohol, illegal

drugs or tobacco.

For the first violation, the penalty will

be prohibition from athletic participation

for a minimum of 50 percent of the scheduled

contests of that sport.

The athletic administrator may reduce

that penalty to 20 percent for participating

in a program of counseling at the expense

of the athlete.

In addition, all vaping and juuling violations

will be treated as a drug violation.

Should the parent and/or student athlete

challenge the drug charge, they can have a

drug test at their expense within 24 hours

of the initial violation.

The penalties increase for a second or

third violation.

The board will hear the third and final

reading of these changes to the athletic

handbook at their next meeting, which is

scheduled for 6 p.m. July 16 at the district

office, 90 N. East St. in Pickerington, adjacent

to Heritage Elementary School.

Special education staff

working together for students

The board heard a presentation from the

special education department led by

Kristina Hulse, director of special education.

She explained how Pickerington is on

target for state numbers for students with

disabilities, as 14.7 percent of the students

have been identified.

She said the goal is to keep the students

in a traditional classroom for 80 percent of

the day, because studies have shown they

perform best that way.

Julie Pitman, school psychologist and

member of the autism support team,

explained how they formed the “A Team” in

2012-13 to better serve the students.

“We’re a little bit different than an

assessment you would receive elsewhere,”

she said. “What we do is all work together.”

They do a high-quality evaluation that

includes structured and unstructured

observations, in-depth parent interview,

teacher survey and more.

“As a team we sit down together and discuss

what formation we want to take back

to the building team,” she said, noting they

average 15 evaluations per year.

“The members of our team are the best

of the best. We really learn a lot from each

other,” she said.

They special education office also created

a “B Team” to address behavior issues,

explained Brittany Turnbull, special education

coordinator.

“Our mission is to be a resource for our

staff and families,” she said. “This is our

second year and we’ve had 18 referrals,

which is really amazing.”

Blythe Wood, special education academic/behavior

coach, explained how her role is

to provide classroom support.

“Our teachers are being presented with

a lot of structured programs,” she said, noting

they sometimes need help implementing

and tweaking them.

“I know next year we have some big

ideas,” she said, noting a website for

teacher and parent support is on the horizon.

Two dozen Canal Winchester Middle School students spent the first two weeks of

their summer break learning the finer points of Web, software, game and app development

during a TECH CORPS program sponsored by Battelle. The event culminated

with a skills presentation in the school cafeteria.

Ramping up tech skills

By Linda Dillman

Staff Writer

Summer break started late for a

group of tech savvy Canal Winchester

Middle School students as they delved

into the information technology world for

two weeks.

The school was one of five central

Ohio host sites for the Battelle-funded IT

On Ramp program, developed and run

by TECH CORPS. Students were selected

through an application process run by

Mickey Bumpus at the middle school.

Organizers said the response was overwhelming

and there was a wait list of 18

students this year.

This was the third year for a summer

IT TECH CORPS experience at the middle

school, which challenged students to

become active creators and designers

with technology versus passive consumers

and users. The full day, twoweek

summer camp combined computer

science, information technology skill

building and career exploration through

hands-on activities and experiences.

“Students gained skills and explored

a variety of occupations in the technology

field including computer programming,

game design, web and app development,”

said TECH CORPS Regional

Manager Dr. Marci Howdyshell.

The 10 day camp experience ended

with team presentations to the public in

the school cafeteria. Students displayed

their new skills through projects investigating

the lives of individuals in the

computer science field, such as NASA

mathematician Katherine Johnson.

Six teams of four students outlined

their responsibilities, which included

Web development, software development,

game development and application

development

Eighth grader Tristan Rieman said

he enjoyed Bumpus’ class at the middle

school and wanted to continue learning

through the free Battelle program.

“This helps with school in the sciences,”

said Rieman prior to his spacerelated

game design presentation. “I’d like

to pursue coding as a career. I really liked

game design and the complexity of Java

Script. I designed a space simulation

game and really enjoyed making it. My

father works in IT and I’ll probably spend

the rest of the summer on game design.”

Davina Houchins, mother of 9th

grade camper P.J., said her son saw

information about the IT On Ramp camp

on the district’s Website. She said she

researched similar camps, but found

they were very expensive.

“This opportunity is really awesome,”

said Houchins. “I wanted him to see the

IT side, if it is a profession he wants to go

into. He learned a lot. It was an awesome

experience. I hope they keep doing it.”

Howdyshell felt the Canal Winchester

program was a success.

Within the two-week time span, students

learned enough programming to

design and create their own smartphone

apps, computer games and websites. At

the end of the camp, students were given

the opportunity to anonymously provide

feedback about the program in an online

survey.

A selection of survey comments

included: “This program really opened

my eyes to wanting to take this class in

my 10th grade year”; “It was an awesome

program I had a very fun time

learning how to code. It will be a great

help in the future”; and “I am really glad

I joined it because it was fun. I learned to

use html, JavaScript, css, scratch, Alice,

and appinventor.”

“The IT On Ramp program was funded

through a one-year grant, so although

we may not be able to provide the same

program at Canal Winchester next year,

we hope to provide other programs for

their students,” said Howdyshell.

CW’s Blues & Ribfest tuneful and tasty

Destination: Canal Winchester and the

city of Canal Winchester will present the

ninth annual Canal Winchester Blues &

Ribfest on July 27 and 28 in historic downtown

Canal Winchester.

The air will fill with barbecue wood

smoke and the timeless beat of authentic

American blues at Ohio’s only Blues & Rib

Festival. The two day summer street celebration

features live blues music, worldclass

ribs, a variety of quality non-rib food

options, children’s activities, shaded dining

areas, and a beer and wine garden.

From solid rockin’ electric blues to traditional

acoustic performances, there’s something

to satisfy even the most discriminating

blues fan with music flowing from two

stages throughout the two-day event.

Families are welcome and admission is

free.

“Some of the country’s best rib vendors

will be here, so be sure to make your way

downtown to enjoy the great food and great

music,” said Mayor Mike Ebert.

Destination: Canal Winchester’s

Executive Director Karen Stiles said, “This

year marks the strongest blues line-up

we’ve ever assembled. On the BBQ side,

we’re honored to welcome several rib masters

from the national barbeque circuit

back to Canal Winchester. They will be

competing fiercely against each other for

trophies and bragging rights. And if ribs

aren’t your thing, there is a solid roster of

over 18 other specialty food vendors,

including the famous Schmidt’s Sausage

truck, to satisfy almost any taste or budget.

We did not forget the kids and are very

pleased to be able to bring back the popular

$1 pony rides, too. Maybe the best part of

our event is that there is no charge for getting

in to experience some of the finest live

blues and barbecue to be found anywhere

at any price.”

Officials stated that last year it is estimated

more than 40,000 people attended

last year’s event. The festival benefits the

community by attracting visitors and by

promoting national, regional and local

blues performers.

The festival site radiates out from the

High and Waterloo street intersection

(closed to vehicle traffic) in historic downtown

Canal Winchester.

For GPS/digital mapping users, the

address 10 N. High St., Canal Winchester,

OH 43110 may be used.

Lawn chairs are recommended due to

limited seating. Outside food and beverages

are not permitted within festival

grounds.

Skateboards, bicycles, rollerblades,

scooters, and other “recreational wheels”

are also prohibited.

Parking will be available in the areas

adjacent to festival grounds with additional

handicap parking in designated areas on

West Waterloo Street and North High

Street.

Latest dinosaur blockbuster not highly evolved

The Reel Deal

My bars of expectation were set low for

“Fallen Kingdom,” the sequel to the 2015

dinosaur romp “Jurassic World.”

‘Surely, it can’t be any worse,’ is what I

thought while waiting for the screening to

start and yet it was able to pull out a surprise.

Admittedly, “Fallen Kingdom” is not a

great film, but it makes for a far better

viewing experience than its predecessor.

It’s equally as stupid and silly, but the content

within is slightly more resonant than

whatever it was that was in the one that

came before.

It is set four years after carnivorous

dinosaurs killed and maimed hundreds of

tourists at the ancient beast resort of Isla

Nublar and things are still not going so

well throughout the land.

Though previously established as being

built on a dormant volcano, Isla Nublar is

now ready to blow because plot advancement

dictates it to be

so.

Most animal

lovers across the

globe are pushing for

the remaining species

to be rescued and

leading the charge is

Claire Dearing (Bryce

Dallas Howard), the

previous head of operations

at Jurassic

Dedra

Cordle

columns

agency has been willing to lend a hand, or

the few billion dollars necessary to do so.

With the volcano ready to erupt at any

moment, magnate Benjamin Lockwood

(James Cromwell) reaches out to Claire

and proposes to fund the rescue mission. In

turn, she reaches out to her former partner

and noted velociraptor trainer Owen Grady

(Chris Pratt) for assistance.

Taking the position of the majority of

the public, Owen initially believes they

should let the dinosaurs die on the island

to correct the hubris of humans who

believed they could and should be cloned.

But his mind is changed when he is told

that Blue, the slightly more emphatic

velociraptor, is still living on Isla Nublar.

Because there is another film to follow

this — it is set to be released in 2021 — the

rescue mission does not go as planned and

we are introduced to multiple plot points

related to human cloning, dinosaur warfare

and how people would fare should

dinosaurs be released into the world. My

guess on the latter is not great, but there

are some people I wouldn’t mind being

whisked away by a flock of Pteranodons.

While “Fallen Kingdom” is an overall

silly movie, it works in a way that “Jurassic

World” didn’t by offering more thought

about human stupidity, conservation, and

animal rights. I never expected to see a

message about the importance of the latter

two in a summer blockbuster movie not

named ‘Planet of the Apes,’ but here we are.

Perhaps because the expectations were

set so low, I found “Fallen Kingdom” to be

not half bad. It’s entertaining, non-dragging

and just a decent way to spend two

hours. Grade: C+

Eating right takes much planning and discipline

I never knew eating could be so hard.

I’ve never pretended to be a healthful

eater. I generally avoid fast food, don’t load

in print

up my cart at the grocery store with a ton

of processed foods, and enjoy visiting farmers

markets during this time of year.

CKWPS

When it comes to meal planning and

watching what I eat, that needs some

work.

Often I come home with bags full of

fresh produce, only to throw half of it away

at the end of the week. I have good intentions

- to eat salads every day and snack on

fresh fruit instead of other items in the

pantry, but finding the will power to do so

is harder and often more complicated than

what I would like to admit.

Having two kids, like many parents, I

have at least a few “snacky” items in my

pantry, whether it’s crackers, granola bars

or cereal that doesn’t taste like the cardboard

box it comes in. The temptation to

bypass those items in favor of the more

healthful items I picked out earlier in the

week often is too great.

Call it impulse-control problems or simply

bad-decision making, but I find myself

on the losing end of that battle.

Don’t get me started on when it’s Girl

Scout cookie time, Halloween or Easter

basket time.

I have learned a few tips along the way.

The most important way to control your

impulse to grab a not-so-healthy treat

instead of a healthy one is to not have that

option. I’ve gotten pretty good about

refraining from purchasing unhealthy

foods at the store, but the temptation to

grab salty treats like crackers or granola

bars that are more chocolate and sugar

than oats and nuts is real.

Even if you have the intention of only

grabbing one of those not-so-healthy treats

a day, just don’t. Unless you have the

impulse control of an elite athlete, don’t

even bother. Keep all temptations out of

the house.

If you really want to treat yourself to a

treat once a day, opt for something that is

easy to eat in moderation. For example, the

Life Moments

last few times I’ve

gone to the grocery

store, I’ve bought hot

chocolate. It’s sweet

and hits the spot after

Christine

Bryant

dinner, but you never really want more

than one cup of hot chocolate.

Meal planning also helps with the temptation

of ordering pizza and take-out, and

I’ve found using those curb-side grocery

services really removes the temptation of

impulse buying while at the store.

That’s what I’ve learned so far. I still

have a long way to go, but I did find a few

other tips online that might help you if

you’re struggling just as I am:

•Set small, measurable goals. Often it’s

easy to go all in, and then quickly opt out.

Set realistic goals first, like upping your

water intake or making sure each meal has

at least one fruit or vegetable. Then from

there, set another goal.

•Pick a day and prep the food. If you

make big batches of grains at the beginning

of the week, or spend an hour or two

cleaning vegetables and fruit ahead of

time, you may be more likely to grab them

in a pinch knowing you don’t have to go

through the process of prepping them each

time.

•Enjoy foods in moderation.

Deprivation tends to backfire, so enjoy your

favorite treat in moderation. The tricky

part is not overindulging.

•Lastly, perhaps the best advice I found

was to not let one setback keep you from

attaining your goal. It’s easy to slip up -

and overindulge. If you do, make your next

choice a healthy one and build from there.
