Groveport and its police<br />

are reaching agreements<br />

Second of three contracts<br />

approved by city council<br />

By Rick Palsgrove<br />

<strong>Southeast</strong> Editor<br />

The city of Groveport and its police<br />

department have agreed to two contracts<br />

with one more agreement remaining to be<br />

negotiated.<br />

On Sept. 10, Groveport City Council<br />

approved a three year collective bargaining<br />

agreement dated from July 1, <strong>2018</strong> through<br />

June 30, 2021 for the police department’s<br />

four sergeants who are members of the<br />

Ohio Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association.<br />

“Sergeants are all at max salaries: 14<br />

percent above highest patrol base rate of<br />

$38.18 per hour ($43.53) as of July, <strong>2018</strong>;<br />

14.5 percent above highest patrol base rate<br />

of $39.32 per hour ($45.02) as of July, 2019<br />

and 15 percent above highest patrol base<br />

rate of $40.60 per hour ($46.69) as of July,<br />

2020,” said Groveport City Administrator<br />

Marsha Hall.<br />

A few weeks ago, the city and the<br />

department’s patrol officers also agreed to<br />

a three year contract that runs from July 1,<br />

<strong>2018</strong> to June 30, 2021. That contract<br />

applies to patrol officers and detectives<br />

who are members of the Fraternal Order of<br />

Police, Capital City Lodge #9. Under that<br />

contract the officers’ July <strong>2018</strong> pay<br />

increase is $2,000 added to the base ending<br />

salary of the last year of the previous contract,<br />

then a 3 percent increase of the new<br />

salary. The officers will receive a 3 percent<br />

pay raise in the second year and a 3.25 percent<br />

increase in the third year of the contract.<br />

The only remaining contract to be negotiated<br />

is for the department’s lone lieutenant.<br />

“The lieutenant just became part of the<br />

bargaining union after the negotiations for<br />

the sergeants,” said Hall.<br />

She said the negotiations should begin<br />

soon for the lieutenant contract, but added<br />

she could not predict when that agreement<br />

would be reached.<br />

The police captains and police chief do<br />

not have negotiated collectively bargained<br />

contracts.<br />

Rockin’ kindness at GM Middle School South<br />

Teacher Rachel Owens and<br />

her class spread kind words<br />

By Rick Palsgrove<br />

<strong>Southeast</strong> Editor<br />

Groveport Madison Middle School South<br />

students are rockin’ kindness.<br />

During the first week of school in early<br />

<strong>September</strong>, students in teacher Rachel<br />

Owens’ sixth grade English Language Arts<br />

classes created around 80 “kindness rocks”<br />

that were “planted’ outside around the<br />

community for people to find.<br />

“The idea came from the Kindness Rock<br />

Project that has been kind of floating<br />

around the last few years,” said Owens. “I<br />

wanted to start the school year on a positive<br />

note by promoting kindness between<br />

my students and throughout the community.”<br />

Owens was inspired to conduct the project<br />

after reading the book, “Be Kind,” by<br />

Pat Zietlow Miller, which is about the<br />

power of kindness. She said the character<br />

learns there are different ways to show<br />

kindness and how even small acts can<br />

make a big difference.<br />

“After reading the book to my students<br />

and discussing its themes, each student<br />

painted a rock,” said Owens. “The rocks are<br />

anywhere from 2 to 5 inches and flat(ish)<br />

on one side so they are easy to paint. I<br />

encouraged my students to write positive<br />

messages or quotes on their rocks.”<br />

Owens said other students chose to<br />

paint an artistic design on their rocks.<br />

“On the back is a label with the words<br />

#KindnessRocksGroveport,” said Owens.<br />

“After the rocks were sealed and finished,<br />

students were encouraged to ‘hide’ the<br />

rocks in their community. Students decided<br />

where to ‘plant’ the rocks. Hopefully, people<br />

who find the rocks will post a photo of it<br />

on social media using our hashtag and then<br />

re-hide the rock so we can see how far and<br />

wide our kindness spreads and the students<br />

and I can see the impact they are<br />

having. ”<br />

Owens said the purpose of the Kindness<br />

Rocks Project is, “One message at just the<br />

right moment can change someone’s entire<br />

day, outlook, life.”<br />

Owens wanted to show students how far<br />

and wide they could spread kindness and<br />

how something so simple as saying one nice<br />

thing can make a big impact, which she<br />

said is also a theme in the book, “Be Kind.”<br />

“I would love to see how far our<br />

Kindness Rocks go throughout the community,”<br />

said Owens. “Hopefully, the rocks<br />

will put a smile on the finder’s face and<br />

encourage them to spread kindness as<br />

well.”<br />

Four to be inducted into Cruiser Athletic Hall of Fame<br />

By Rick Palsgrove<br />

<strong>Southeast</strong> Editor<br />

Four more standouts will be enshrined<br />

in the Groveport Madison High School<br />

Cruiser Athletic Hall of Fame this year.<br />

“We are proud to announce the next<br />

great class of the Groveport Madison<br />

Athletic Hall of Fame,” said Groveport<br />

Madison Athletic Director Steve Petros.<br />

“This class not only features a Cruiser from<br />

long ago in Irma White, but also two athletes<br />

who also succeeded at the college level<br />

in Skip Ivery and Daryl Royal. We are also<br />

inducting a member who may well have the<br />

longest tenure in the athletic department<br />

in Brenda Moody. This will be a fun class<br />

that still has a lot of local ties here in<br />

Groveport. Having the opportunity to have<br />

the ceremony in our brand new high school<br />

will only make the occasion more special.”<br />

Groveport Madison’s<br />

State Report Card results<br />

show student growth<br />

Groveport Madison School received an<br />

overall Grade of “C” and Value Added<br />

Grade of “A” for <strong>2018</strong> on the State Report<br />

Card.<br />

The overall grade includes six components:<br />

Achievement, Progress, Gap<br />

Closing, Improving At-Risk K-3 Readers<br />

(previously known as K-3 Literacy<br />

Improvement), Graduation Rate and<br />

Prepared for Success. Out of Ohio’s 609<br />

school districts, 41.6 percent earned a “C”<br />

this year.<br />

The Value Added grade reflects that<br />

students achieved more than a year’sworth<br />

of academic growth over the course<br />

of the year.<br />

In addition, the district received an “A”<br />

for the academic growth of students who<br />

have struggled the most (the lowest 20 percent<br />

of achievers), an “A” Value Added<br />

grade for students with disabilities, and an<br />

“A” Value Added grade for students who<br />

are receiving gifted services.<br />

The district’s “Gap Closing” grade<br />

increased from an “F” to a “B.”<br />

The Gap Closure component indicates<br />

how the district is meeting the performance<br />

expectations for the most vulnerable<br />

students in English language arts, math,<br />

graduation and English language proficiency.<br />

“We could not be more pleased with the<br />

growth and progress our students are<br />

making,” said Superintendent Garilee<br />

Ogden. “Our staff has worked tirelessly to<br />

ensure our students are academically successful.<br />

We are focusing our efforts to<br />

ensure that every student is achieving to<br />

their maximum potential, making every<br />

lesson and every day count. The State<br />

Report Card is one benchmark for us to<br />

measure our efforts, and we feel good<br />

about the direction in which we are moving.”<br />

The seventh annual Cruiser Hall of<br />

Fame ceremony will be on Sept. 28 in the<br />

Groveport Madison High School commons<br />

area, 4475 S. Hamilton Road. The induction<br />

ceremony will begin at 5:30 p.m. and is<br />

game vs. Franklin Heights (the game<br />

Over the past five or so years, I’ve had a<br />

love/hate relationship with the prospect of<br />

turning 40.<br />

For me, it seemed like a huge jump to go<br />

from your 30s to your 40s. I remember<br />

when I was young, probably in my 20s,<br />

turning 40 was like hearing about this faroff<br />

land … a place you knew existed, would<br />

eventually get to someday, but couldn’t<br />

quite comprehend what that would look or<br />

feel like.<br />

I didn’t think of it as a dystopia-like<br />

place, but it wasn’t exactly utopia either.<br />

Some people say age is just a number,<br />

but those who go through midlife crises<br />

may disagree.<br />

I used to joke that on my 40th birthday,<br />

it would be just like any other day - nothing<br />

to see here, move along.<br />

Then I got sick - really sick. And there<br />

were a few moments where I began to wonder<br />

whether I would even have the opportunity<br />

to celebrate that 40th milestone, or<br />

have the choice to simply move along.<br />

Earlier this month, I turned 40, and<br />

although what I received was the gift of<br />

back-to-school germs from my oldest, I<br />

spent a lot of time reflecting on what it<br />

meant to me to hit that personal milestone.<br />

Reflections on turning 40<br />

Life Moments<br />

Sure, turning 40 typically<br />

comes with even<br />

more gray hairs than I<br />

thought possible. I don’t<br />

get up off the floor quite<br />

as fast as I used to, and I<br />

now have to watch what<br />

I eat at night so acid<br />

reflux doesn’t keep me<br />

burning the midnight oil.<br />

I’m also a little more<br />

worried about what<br />

health concerns may<br />

start manifesting. It<br />

seems like that list of<br />

health screenings you<br />

Christine<br />

Bryant<br />

should start checking off, one by one, is just<br />

around the corner.<br />

Turning 40, however, comes some pretty<br />

great things also.<br />

Your teen years are known as the awkward<br />

years, but I remember plenty of times<br />

when I felt awkward in my 20s and 30s. I<br />

had a hard time saying no, and I cared<br />

entirely too much about what other people<br />

www.columbusmessenger.com<br />

thought of me.<br />

I admit I still do care what people think<br />

about me, but only certain people - those<br />

who mean something to me.<br />

I’ve also felt a shift in my priorities. I<br />

feel more at ease now with knowing what<br />

truly matters in life, and though sometimes<br />

I drift off course, I actually have a course<br />

from which to follow that aligns with my<br />

ideals.<br />

You also begin to realize that what you<br />

thought would kill you, or what seemed<br />

like the end of the world in your 20s and<br />

30s, really won’t end your life. You’ll move<br />

on, and you have enough examples from<br />

your 20s and 30s to prove it.<br />

Lastly, while there are some aspects of<br />

getting older that increases my anxiety, I<br />

feel a little more free to take risks - to follow<br />

unrealized dreams - and let go when<br />

something doesn’t work out.<br />

Maybe that’s my own little personal<br />

midlife crisis - instead of feeling regret, act<br />

on something before remorse can creep in.<br />

I used to be afraid to turn 40, but I can<br />

say without a doubt, now that I am 40, I’m<br />

so very happy to be here.<br />

The <strong>Southeast</strong> <strong>Messenger</strong> welcomes letters to the editor.<br />

Letters can be of any topic as long as they are not<br />

libelous. Letters that do not have a signature, address, and<br />

letters policy<br />

One of the things I’ve noticed about getting older is<br />

how sudden realizations pop into one’s mind.<br />

We go along in life working and doing all the other<br />

things we do to live and maintain ourselves. We often<br />

don’t notice our bodies aging. We still think we’re the<br />

young people that are floating around in the memories in<br />

our brains.<br />

Then one day this thought bubbled up in my head: I<br />

can’t remember the last time I ran as fast as I could.<br />

It’s not that I’m inactive. I bicycle a lot, exercise, hike<br />

and so forth. I’ve even run slowly for short distances when<br />

I had to. I’m in decent shape. But when was the last time<br />

I sprinted? I mean, really pushed my legs to cover ground<br />

quickly. I don’t remember. Maybe it’s when I finally<br />

called an end to my basketball playing career when my<br />

knees said, “Enough!” some years ago.<br />

Running as fast as one can is common when you’re a<br />

kid and in our young adulthood. It’s a joyous experience,<br />

almost Walt Whitmanesque in its liberating physical exuberance.<br />

But, as the years progress we somehow find ourselves<br />

in fewer and fewer situations that call for flat out fast<br />

running. (5K race enthusiasts and Senior Olympians<br />

excluded, as I know they still have it in them and that<br />

makes me happy.)<br />

In general, as we grow older and supposedly wiser, we<br />

tend to not take chances with our bodies as hamstrings,<br />

knees, shoulders, feet, and various other bones and tendons<br />

balk at the<br />

idea of unnecessarily<br />

hopping<br />

a fence, jumping<br />

up or down on things, or<br />

sprinting a 100 yard dash.<br />

One of my fellow aging peers -<br />

who, when we were young, could<br />

jump over a picnic table lengthwise,<br />

easily walk along the top bar<br />

of a swing set like a high wire daredevil,<br />

Madison Township police cruiser involved in crash<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

A mid-August vehicle crash sent a<br />

Madison Township police officer to the hospital,<br />

an alleged drunk driver to jail and a<br />

police cruiser to the scrap yard following an<br />

accident on Hamilton Road.<br />

Madison Township Police Chief Gary<br />

York said the officer was driving northbound<br />

on Hamilton Road when he stopped<br />

at a red light near the Giant Eagle supermarket.<br />

Moments later, he was rear-ended.<br />

York estimated the driver, who had no<br />

insurance and was not licensed, was going<br />

more than 30 mph when she crashed into<br />

the officer’s vehicle, totaling the cruiser.<br />

“Her blood alcohol level was .226,” said<br />

York.<br />

In Ohio, the threshold for blood alcohol<br />

level is .08 and a high-tier level of .17 or<br />

higher results in stiffer penalties and<br />

longer jail time.<br />

During a Sept. 11 trustees’ meeting,<br />

York asked the trustees to approve the purchase<br />

of a <strong>2018</strong> Ford 150 Responder vehicle<br />

to replace the 2013 Caprice totaled by the<br />

insurance company, as a result of the accident.<br />

The state bid price for the truck is<br />

$34,951–plus an additional $3,045 for<br />

non-bid items, for a total of $37,996–<br />

including title and fees.<br />

York said he initially budgeted for two<br />

new vehicles this year, but decided to delay<br />

the purchases. Following the accident and<br />

the loss of the 2013 cruiser, he said it was<br />

now necessary to replace the car with the<br />

pursuit-rated truck. In 2013, the cruiser<br />

was purchased and outfitted for more than<br />

$35,000. York said the new cruiser, once<br />

outfitted and with the insurance reimbursement<br />

check, will be cheaper than the<br />

old cruiser was in 2013.<br />

“This would be a patrol vehicle, like the<br />

SUV we currently have, but it would be a<br />

sergeant’s vehicle,” said York, who said<br />

because of the truck configuration, it could<br />

serve a variety of purposes.<br />

“It’s sitting on the lot, ready to go with<br />

options,” said York. “Obviously, with a<br />

2019, we would pay more and have to<br />

wait.”<br />

The trustees unanimously approved the<br />

request.<br />

Other township news<br />

Blacklick Estates resident Reese<br />

Kenney thanked Fire Chief Jeff Fasone for<br />

his assistance in resolving a decade-long<br />

fire issue.<br />

“I want to give huge kudos to Jeff<br />

Fasone,” said Kenney.<br />

Kenney said when Fasone recently<br />

asked her if she had any issues or concerns,<br />

she told him about a fire hydrant that was<br />

removed from her yard about 10 years ago<br />

This Madison Township Police cruiser was rear ended in a crash in August.<br />

after it was repeatedly damaged by<br />

motorists.<br />

“I had a fire hydrant in my yard since<br />

the development was built,” said Kenney,<br />

“but after the umpteenth time (of car damage);<br />

they decided to take it out. I talked<br />

with Jeff Fasone, and within a week, he<br />

had someone out to look and after that, it<br />

was replaced. I now have a bright red fire<br />

hydrant in my yard and I thank him for<br />

quick action.”

Peter “Dan” Burrill (left) and Dan Kockensparger, who were the guest speakers at the<br />

service, place the Memorial Wreath in front of the damaged Ladder Truck 18 from the<br />

Fort Pitt Fire Station from the Fire Department of New York, which was damaged on<br />

Sept. 11, 2001 and is now part of the Motts Military Museum collection. Kockensparger,<br />

who served 33 years with the Upper Arlington Fire Department and who was deployed<br />

to the World Trade Center collapse with Ohio Task Force One, said when he arrived in<br />

New York in 2001 the scene at World Trade Center site was “beyond what the mind<br />

could comprehend. Despite the passing of 17 years, the images remain vivid.” Burrill<br />

was a member of the Alaska Disaster Medical Assistance Team 1 that traveled to New<br />

York after the attacks. Burrill described the aftermath of the attacks as an “overwhelming<br />

scene and he recalled treating a tall, strong recovery worker who had received a<br />

deep, four inch gash on his arm. Burrill said the man told him, “You’ve got five minutes<br />

to sew me up or else bandage me up fast because I’m going back out on the pile to<br />

work.” “There are things I’ll never forget,” said Burrill. “It’s important to remember that<br />

bonds are built during traumatic events.”

A bi-monthly feature celebrating our<br />

community’s senior citizens<br />

e benefits of growing older<br />

Many people think of growing older in a<br />

negative light.<br />

Although there are some side effects of<br />

aging that one may wish to avoid, people<br />

may find that the benefits of growing older<br />

outweigh the negatives.<br />

Seniors are a rapidly growing segment<br />

of the population. With so many people living<br />

longer, it’s time to celebrate the perks<br />

of getting older rather than the drawbacks.<br />

Here are some benefits to growing old.<br />

•Higher self-esteem: The insecurities of<br />

youth give way as one ages, and older people<br />

have less negativity and higher selfesteem.<br />

Qualities like self-control and<br />

altruism can contribute to happiness.<br />

•Financial perks: Seniors are entitled to<br />

discounts on meals, museum entry fees,<br />

movies, and other entertainment if they’re<br />

willing to disclose their ages. Discounts are<br />

available through an array of venues if one<br />

speaks up. Seniors also can enjoy travel<br />

perks, with slashed prices on resorts, plane<br />

tickets and more.<br />

•Reasoning and problem-solving skills:<br />

Brain scans reveal that older adults are<br />

more likely to use both hemispheres of<br />

their brains simultaneously something<br />

called bilateralization. This can sharpen<br />

reasoning skills.<br />

•Less stress: As people grow older, they<br />

are able to differentiate their needs from<br />

wants and focus on more important goals.<br />

This can alleviate worry over things that<br />

are beyond one’s control. Seniors may realize<br />

how little the opinions of others truly<br />

mean in the larger picture, thereby feeling<br />

less stress about what others think of<br />

them.<br />

Growing older may involve gray hair or<br />

wrinkling skin, but there are many positive<br />

things associated with aging.<br />

Community Shred Day<br />

The Scouts and their leaders show up in force to<br />

help unload the boxes of paper and documents<br />

from vehicles and place them in the shredding<br />

containers. This makes it very convenient for participants<br />

who do not need to get out of their vehicle<br />

or lift heavy boxes. The Scouts are able to use<br />

their service on Community Shred Day towards<br />

earning the “Pulp and Paper” merit badge.<br />

Dwayne R. Spence Funeral Home is pleased<br />

that the citizens of Canal Winchester choose them<br />

and their shred company, Royal Document<br />

Destruction, to eliminate old and outdated paperwork.<br />

Royal Document Destruction was chosen<br />

to shred documents on-site because of their reputation<br />

and their security measures in dealing with<br />

vulnerable documentation.<br />

Aging’s role in fighting hunger<br />

Feeding America has declared<br />

<strong>September</strong> “Hunger Action Month.”<br />

The Franklin County Office on Aging<br />

takes an active role in ensuring that older<br />

adults in Franklin County have access to<br />

the food assistance services they need to<br />

preserve their independence and quality of<br />

life.<br />

Food assistance services are ones that<br />

address the needs of those who are struggling<br />

to either gain access to food or prepare<br />

their meals. Franklin County is a<br />

service rich community that offers a myriad<br />

of services to combat hunger and these<br />

services are a vital resource to older adults<br />

residing within our community. It is a priority<br />

of the Franklin County Office on<br />

Aging, through the Senior Options program,<br />

to provide both the connection to and<br />

funding for food assistance services such as<br />

home delivered meals and nutritional supplements.<br />

In 2017, Franklin County Senior<br />

Options was able to provide approximately<br />

673,000 home delivered meals as well as<br />

SEPTEMBER IS NATIONAL PREPAREDNESS MONTH<br />

<strong>September</strong> is National Preparedness Month. National Preparedness Month was<br />

founded after 9/11 to increase preparedness across the United States. The <strong>2018</strong><br />

theme: “Disasters Happen. Prepare Now. Learn How.” focuses on planning. We are<br />

reminded to take the opportunity to plan and prepare ourselves and our families for all<br />

hazards and emergencies before they happen. Emergencies can occur anytime and<br />

anywhere without advance notice.<br />

<br />

<br />

tornados. Make sure to consider the costs associated with disasters and save for an<br />

<br />

gas.<br />

In our area power outages are a common occurrence this time of year after a<br />

<br />

to last for at least 72 hours. To receive advance warnings of thunderstorms or other<br />

<br />

<br />

<br />

system is designed to notify residents about emergencies and other important<br />

community news in jurisdictions throughout Franklin County.<br />

Know how you will communicate during a disaster. Consider these steps to start<br />

your emergency communication plan:<br />

2. SHARE. Make certain trusted people in your support network know:<br />

Where your emergency supplies are kept.<br />

How to contact you if the power goes out.<br />

<br />

contact each other directly.<br />

What medical devices or assistive technology devices that you need to have<br />

with you if there is an evacuation order from local officials.<br />

<br />

ventilation.<br />

How to obtain a copy of your plan.<br />

3. PRACTICE. Just like you would a fire drill.<br />

Discuss your needs and/or the needs of a family member; learn about their<br />

assistance or services. Advocate including people with disabilities and others<br />

with access and functional needs into emergency planning in your community.<br />

Groveport zoning issues<br />

•Groveport City Council is considering amending<br />

the zoning from agricultural to select commercial<br />

planned district on about six acres located on the east<br />

side of Hendron Road south of the railroad and near<br />

the intersection of Hendron Road and Cherry Blossom<br />

Drive.<br />

According the to zoning amendment paperwork, the<br />

applicant owns a security installation business in<br />

Obetz with 15 employees. He would like to rezone the<br />

property on Hendron Road to build a small office with<br />

warehouse facilities as well as build and rent self-storage<br />

units at the back of the property.<br />

•Council is considering a request for a permitted use<br />

variance for property located at 4241 Williams Road,<br />

which is currently zoned planned industrial park.<br />

According to a report by Groveport City Engineer<br />

Steve Farst and the variance request paperwork, the<br />

applicant wishes to convert the existing warehouse on<br />

the site into a service and repair facility and use the<br />

property for truck mechanical service, parts storage<br />

and distribution, and fleet vehicle sales.<br />

Public hearings on both issues will be held prior to<br />

the council meeting on Sept. 24. Council is scheduled<br />

to vote on the two requests mentioned above at the<br />

Sept. 24 meeting.<br />

The City of Groveport<br />

will be flushing fire hydrants<br />

between 8 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.<br />

from<br />

Sept. 17th to Sept. 28th<br />

If you see a hydrant being flushed on your street, avoid running tap water,<br />

washing machine, or dishwasher until flushing in the area is complete.<br />

After hydrant flushing, tap water may come out with sediment that causes<br />

discoloration. Although a slight discoloration may last for a few hours, it only<br />

affects appearance of the water and poses no health risk.<br />

If you encounter discolored water, shut your water off and wait several minutes.<br />

After waiting, check the clarity by running cold water for a few minutes to allow<br />

the new water to flow into pipes. If the water is still discolored, wait a few<br />

minutes and check again. In some cases, it may be a few hours before water<br />

is completely clear.<br />

Avoid washing laundry during the scheduled flushing hours. After hydrants in<br />

your area have been flushed, wait until water runs clear from your tap, then<br />

begin with a load of dark laundry before doing lights or whites. If water<br />

pressure or volume seems low, check faucet screens for trapped particles.<br />
