Gateway Plan gets

council approval

By Rick Palsgrove

Southeast Editor

The city of Groveport is looking west and north for redevelopment

along two of the main roadway corridors into the town.

On June 25, Groveport City Council unanimously approved the

acceptance of the Gateway Corridor Plan.

“This allows us to start making changes in our city codes,” said

Groveport City Administrator Marsha Hall.

“It’s got to be done,” said Councilwoman Jean Ann Hilbert.

The plan arose following a study conducted by consultant

James Hartzler at a cost of $8,800 to conduct a study of the

Hamilton Road corridor between U.S. 33 and Bixby Road; and the

Groveport Road corridor from State Route 317 west to Swisher

Road.

Groveport Finance Director/Assistant Administrator Jeff

Green said the Groveport Community Improvement Corporation

market study of the city being conducted this summer will also

take the Hamilton Road and Groveport Road corridors into consideration.

The Hamilton Road corridor is currently a mix of schools, warehouses,

offices, township government, and other general commercial

uses.

The west Groveport Road corridor is a mix of warehouses, small

businesses, and residences.

Green previously stated the Gateway Corridor Plan will help

the city to address: recommended land use, appropriate zoning,

the overall aesthetic, what types of commercial development

would best complement the existing industrial development, and

what the best uses are for the vacant land on Hamilton Road and

Groveport/Saltzgaber Roads.

The plan’s recommendations

Hamilton Road corridor:

•Adaptive reuse of existing industrial buildings.

•Establish a link between Homer Ohio Lane and Higgins

Boulevard and extend Firehouse Lane.

•Potential uses for the 40 acre AEP site: school use, AEP

expansion, or flex space office/industrial (with flexible interior layouts

and configurations). It is estimated around 300,000 to

400,000 square feet of building space - most likely in several structures

- could fit on

the site.

•Repurpose the

Pool makes crowd adjustments

By Rick Palsgrove

Southeast Editor

Summer has brought many seeking relief from

the heat to the Groveport Aquatic Center and city

officials are taking steps to manage the large crowds

and to keep them safe.

Groveport City Council and city administrators

stepped up police presence in response to security

complaints from patrons at the pool and also instituted

new maximum occupancy rules.

“Police presence will be increased on weekends

and especially on hot days,” said Groveport City

Administrator Marsha Hall.

Groveport Recreation Director Kyle Lund said

the security complaints involve patron altercations,

including physical fights and verbal confrontations.

“To my knowledge, we have had three issues this

year thus far,” said Lund.

The new maximum capacity policy reads as follows:

“No day pass patrons (including those with

pre-purchased day passes) will be permitted in the

facility once 800 patrons have entered the facility.

Only season pass holders (and their paying guests)

will be permitted to enter the facility once 800

patrons have entered the facility. No person shall

enter the facility once 1,000 persons have entered

the facility. Season pass holders (and guests in their

immediate party) will be admitted ahead of persons

who have a pre-purchased day pass and persons

needing to purchase a day pass.”

Hall said the new maximum capacity policy will

enhance safety by making the amount of people in

areas lifeguards cover more manageable. She said

fewer people in the water at one time could also help

reduce the possibility of injuries to pool patrons

caused by overcrowding.

The previous maximum capacity was unofficially

around 1,000 to 1,100.

“The facility never used an actual number in the

past,” said Lund. “We called maximum capacity

when lifeguards felt that they could no longer scan

their zones properly. The 1,000 to 1,100 was an

approximation. If a lifeguard does not feel that he or

she can properly scan their assigned zone due to a

large number of patrons, he or she notifies management.

Management analyzes that particular area

and other areas in the facility and talks to lifeguard

staff and then determines if maximum capacity

should be called.”

According to Lund, there are between 18 to 22

lifeguards scheduled per shift.

“We currently have 65 lifeguards employed,

including head lifeguards and assistant managers,”

said Lund.

Lund said the pool officials still have the ability

to call maximum capacity before it reaches 800.

“It really depends on how many people are in the

water, not just in the facility,” said Lund. “On really

warm days, there may be more people in the water

as compared to days when the temperature is in the

low 80’s.”

Police & firefighters make good use of old school

By Rick Palsgrove

Southeast Editor

The old Groveport Madison High School

on South Hamilton Road performed one

more educational function before it will be

demolished this summer.

On June 8, Groveport Police and

Madison Township Police used the now

empty school for training on how to

respond to active threat situations.

Additionally, the Madison Township

Fire Department held firefighter training

sessions in the school from June 8-11.

environment and one in which our officers

were familiar,” said Groveport Police Sgt.

Josh Short. “We conduct this type of training

due to the nationwide increase in active

threat incidents and our desire to more efficiently

stop one if it were to occur in our

area. Using school locations is convenient

for us due to the wonderful relationship we

have with Groveport Madison Schools.”

Madison Township Police Chief Gary

York said officers were placed into a simulated

“active threat” situation in which they

were the initial responding officer and then

had to locate and render the threat inactive.

“We used the term ‘active threat,’

because not all incidents involve the use of

a gun,” said York. “Knives, improvised

explosive devices, vehicles, or other objects

could be used.”

York said, by going through the scenarios,

officers learned how critical the use of

cover and tactical deployment is.

“We attempted to make this training as

real as possible,” said York.

“Officers were given the details of the

scenario and then had to recognize and

react, while navigating the school, to eliminate

the threat,” said Short.

In the training scenario, officers were

“dispatched” to the school on report of an

active shooter with multiple victims. Once

inside the officer had to safely and efficiently

navigate the many halls, doorways,

stairs, and rooms of the large school to

quickly get to the shooter.

“Once you start the scenario, you are

totally focused on the situation, and it seems

like it took forever, but it was literally over in

about a minute,” said

Groveport Police

Officer Ernie Bell.

“It’s much more realistic

and much more

difficult when you are

shooting at an actual

moving person versus

a paper target.”

According to

Short, the active

shooter training session

was conducted

using modified

weapons that can

shoot blanks, to simulate

real gunfire,

and marking cartridges,

which allow

officers to engage

the threat with nonlethal

bullets.

Short, who played

the role of an active

shooter, described

his experience as the

villain in the training

session in one

word: “Ouch!”

York said officers

were provided limited

information and

then a stimulus - the

sounds of gun shots,

loud noises or a person with a deadly

weapon - where they needed to react based

on their training and experience.

“We placed the officers in a tough, realistic

scenario, which induced stress and

forced them to make quick decisions to end

the threat,” said York.

Short said that, once the shooter was

located, officers employed tactics on how to

penetrate the room to stop the shooter and

avoid injury to innocent victims. Officers

were also updated on proper procedures for

afterwards, such as radio communication

and first aid.

By this type of training, Short said, officers

experienced the negative physical

responses, such as tunnel vision, rapid

breath, shaking hands, caused by stress.

“Through exposure, repetition, and after

action assessment we want the officers to

overcome the negative responses so their

performance improves with each scenario,”

said Short.

Short said the training is important

because active threat situations are

increasing nationwide.

“As with any criminal trend, law

enforcement must respond with awareness

and training to ensure the public we are

committed to their safety,” said Short.

York said training like this keeps things

real for the officers.

“It shows them areas of needed improvement,

along with equipment adjustments

and basically what works and what doesn’t,”

said York.

Firefighters take on a challenge

Madison Township Fire Chief Jeff

Fasone said when the chance to use the old

high school for training arose, his department

jumped at the chance.

“Training opportunities are more likely

a residential structure in disrepair or being

cleared for other development,” said

Fasone. “Commercial structures usually

get remodeled instead of demolished. Old

schools can also be remodeled. So, when

you hear of an opportunity to use a school

for training, you pounce.”

Fasone said firefighters practiced several

scenarios that required advancing hose

lines charged with water long distances

and up stairs. This included fire suppression

techniques, forcible entry and downed

firefighter rescue in zero visibility aided by

the department’s smoke generator.

“Some shifts took time after the drills to

practice breaching cement block walls for

emergency egress from the building,” said

Fasone.

Fasone said the training sessions challenged

the firefighters.

“Hot days in full fire gear,” said Fasone.

“They would recon a fire alarm scenario,

locate the fire area, get hose lines established

to that area, then go ‘on air’ enter a

zero visibility area and have to force a door

to get to the seat of the fire. Once they

found the seat of a simulated fire they were

able to open the hose line and throw water

inside the room until told the fire was out.”

Fasone said extending long hose lines

can present problems that can be avoided

when you take time setting up.

“Some door locks were set a little higher

than expected, this made forcing entry in a

blind environment more difficult and these

doors were more robust than a door found

in a residence,” said Fasone.

Training such as this benefits firefighters,

according to Fasone.

“A lot of our training is computer or

classroom based,” said Fasone. “We can

build simulators and training aids to simulate

a task that needs to be done. But

that’s no match for getting to use the skills

you’ve learned in a hands-on environment

to add a sense of realism.”

Old tools test modern minds

July 1, 2018 - SOUTHEAST MESSENGER - PAGE 3

columbusmessenger.com

By Rick Palsgrove

Southeast Editor

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.

The potato grader consists of a cylindrical barrel

with holes in 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

A potato grader used for sorting potatoes. This is

one of 18 tools and machines from the 1880s that

were recently displayed at Metro Parks’ Slate Run

Living Historical Farm. Visitors were challenged to

guess the name and function of each item.

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

and the rotary phone, which are now rarely seen, come

to mind.

the six items shown in the photographs below.

Pictured here is the Groveport Madison High School orchestra of 1925-26 posed in

front of the then high school, which is now Groveport Elementary. The school did

not have a marching band until 1934, so students received their musical training in

the orchestra. Note the violins, saxophones, and worn bass drum in the foreground.

An interesting feature in this photo is that Evelyn Sawyer, standing at the far left in

the back row, is wearing the Cruiser girl’s version of a varsity letter sweater. Photos

of the girl’s varsity letter sweater are rare. Traditionally, the girl’s varsity letter

sweaters were red and the boy’s varsity letter sweaters were black. Sawyer was a

starting guard on the girls’ varsity basketball team. The orchestra members are,

from left to right: (first row) Electa Nothstine, trombone; Frank Francisco, violin;

Dorothy Moore, violin; Vivian Knipe, piano; Ella Barnes, director; Ralph Kleinline,

Groveport Fourth of July Celebration

July 1, 2018 - SOUTHEAST MESSENGER - PAGE 7

Groveport celebrates Independence Day in a big way

By Rick Palsgrove

Southeast Editor

Groveport knows how to throw a

party on the Fourth of July.

The city’s annual Fourth of July celebration

will feature the traditional

parade, fireworks and more.

“Our festival has a special hometown

feel. There’s a closeness to it,”

said Groveport Mayor Lance

Westcamp. “We are ‘Central Ohio’s

Hometown.’”

The parade and grand marshal

The celebration will take place on

July 4 and begins with the parade at 11

a.m. The parade starts at the

Groveport Recreation Center and then

goes west on Main Street, then north

on Hendron Road and ending at

Glendening Elementary.

Westcamp said the parade is one of

his favorite things about the festival.

“It’s a chance to see a lot of people

who have moved away, but who return

to town for the parade,” said

Westcamp. “People always come back

home.”

Westcamp said the 121st Air

Refueling Wing of the Ohio Air

National Guard, located at

Rickenbacker International Airport, is

this year’s grand marshal for the city’s

Fourth of July Parade.

Colonel Mark Auer, the commander

of the wing, will represent his unit’s

1,200 airmen and women in the

parade.

The 121st’s mission is to deliver

worldwide air refueling, disaster relief

and combat support. Its official designation

was received in November 1950.

Since then, the unit has supported a

number of missions, including the

Korean Conflict, Berlin Crises, Gulf

War, and Operation Enduring

Freedom after 9/11.

Considered one of the premier units

in the Air National Guard and Air

Force, its men and women are dedicated

to continuing their record of outstanding

service to the nation, state

and community. The unit has received

four Air Force Outstanding Unit

Awards.

In October 2017, a KC-135

Stratotanker, the “Pride of Groveport,”

was dedicated in honor of Groveport.

Westcamp said he is proud of

Groveport’s relationship with the

121st, and hopes the unit considers the

city its “Hometown.”

Fireworks!

Fireworks at Heritage Park begin at

dusk on July 4 accompanied by patriotic

music. Tune into 88.3 FM on your

radio to hear patriotic background

music for the fireworks. Anyone within

a two mile radius of the festival will be

able to pick up the coordinated music.

“The radio connection will make the

fireworks even better,” said Westcamp.

“It’s going to be unbelievable.”

(The rain date for the fireworks is

July 7, at dusk.)

July festivities, call Groveport Town

Hall at 614-836-3333.

PAGE 12 - SOUTHEAST MESSENGER - July 1, 2018

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 World

and the non-sensible shoe wearer of prehistoric

creature chase scenes.

As the president of the Dinosaur

entertainment

Dinosaur film is not highly evolved

The Reel Deal

Protection Group,

Claire has made it

her mission to get

these wonderful

beasts to a safe

haven but thus far no

government agency

has been willing to

lend a hand, or the

few billion dollars

necessary to do so.

With the volcano

Dedra

Cordle

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+

Cell tower

In 2016, the city of Groveport approved

Verizon’s request for a cell tower to be

placed on the water treatment plant site.

The company put the plan on hold. Now,

according to city officials, Verizon is ready

to build the cell tower, but needs a site

east of the original site. There are discussions

to erect the tower near the city’s

public works facility on the east end of

Groveport. According to City

Administrator Marsha Hall, the tower

could be built in 2019.

New GMHS dedication

The dedication ceremony for the new

Groveport Madison High School will be

held Aug. 29 from 7-9 p.m. The Groveport

Madison School District extends a community-wide

invitation to attend the ceremony.

Tour the building and learn how it will

benefit students for many years to come.

Old high school bricks

Bricks from the old Groveport Madison

High School will be available from alumni

following demolition of the building this

summer, according to school district officials.

The demolition contractor will maintain

a pile of salvaged bricks so that the

public may have a keepsake item from the

school. The brick pile will be located close

to the main entrance of the site. If you stop

by to get a brick, be careful, as the bricks

may have wire or other sharp objects

attached to them.
