CW Schools review state results<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

The grades are in for the state 2017-18 State Report<br />

Card and Canal Winchester Schools received an overall<br />

grade of “D.”<br />

While the district consistently earned an “A” component<br />

grade for its graduation rate for at least the<br />

last three years–including the most recent reporting<br />

period–it also received an “F” in progress for the same<br />

time period.<br />

“Right now, we’re all disappointed in the grade,”<br />

said Canal Winchester Schools Superintendent James<br />

Sotlar. “(But) it’s not a true reflection of what’s going<br />

on. Never has, never will be. If you look deep into the<br />

details, our kids are making progress.”<br />

According to the Ohio Department of Education,<br />

the progress component looks at the growth that all<br />

students make based on their past performance.<br />

In 2017-18, Canal Winchester rated a “D” in<br />

achievement, “D” in gap closing, a “C” in K-3 at risk<br />

reader improvement and a “D” in prepared for success.<br />

Gap closing shows how well the district is meeting<br />

performance expectations for vulnerable students.<br />

Achievement measures student performance on state<br />

tests, overall test performance and chronic absenteeism.<br />

Prepared for success looks at how well students<br />

are prepared for future opportunities.<br />

For the 2016-17 school year, the district received a<br />

“C” in achievement, “C” in gap closing, “C” in K-3 literacy<br />

and a “D” in prepared for success.<br />

In 2015-16, the component grades were “C” in<br />

achievement, “F” in gap closing, “D” in K-3 literacy<br />

and a “C” in prepared for success.<br />

Unlike this year, overall district grades were not<br />

posted for the previous two school years.<br />

Statewide, 28 districts were awarded an “A”, 191<br />

received a “B”, 253 rated a “C”, 121 other districts also<br />

earned a “D” and 14 received a failing grade.<br />

Parent Patrick Chiles said the recent report card<br />

caught a lot of parents by surprise.<br />

Water and sewer rates are going up in Canal Winchester, but<br />

customers will have two years to work the increases into their<br />

budget.<br />

“Our fund balances in the water and sewer funds combined<br />

with an increase in usage (revenues) and conservative spending<br />

have put us in the position to not raise rates currently,” said Canal<br />

Winchester Finance Director Amanda Jackson.<br />

During the Sept. 17 Canal Winchester City Council meeting, a<br />

pair of ordinances setting user rates for the next four years was<br />

approved for customers outside the special water allocation district–Canal<br />

Pointe, which is served by Pickerington–and those<br />

receiving sewer services from the city.<br />

Rates for 2019 and 2020 for domestic water and sprinkler rates<br />

per 1,000 gallons remain at $6.33 and then rise to $6.46 on Jan. 1,<br />

2021 and then $6.59 the following year. The bulk water rate<br />

charge per 1,000 gallons remains at $8.90 for the next four years.<br />

The sanitary sewer rate per 1,000 gallons is $5.88 for 2019 and<br />

2020, $6 in 2021 and $6.12 on Jan. 1, 2022.<br />

Currently, an average family of four uses 7,000 gallons per twomonth<br />

cycle and is billed approximately $85. Jackson said Canal<br />

Winchester’s rates are comparable to other area communities.<br />

However, she emphasized different rate structures and minimum/service<br />

charges make it difficult to make direct comparisons.<br />

According to the legislation, water and sanitary sewer user fees<br />

are adjusted at the beginning of the year, as necessary, to provide<br />

and maintain adequate operating and maintenance revenue and<br />

to meet debt obligations.<br />

Jackson said there were increases every year since 1998; however,<br />

there were no sewer increases in 2015-2016.<br />

“Before 2013 we had tiered rates–over under 4,000 gallons<br />

from 2006-2013 and then under 4,000 gallons, 4,000-20,000 gallons,<br />

and over 20,000 gallons from 2005 and earlier,” said Jackson.<br />

“In 2005 we started<br />

getting away from<br />

the tiered rates<br />

mainly because it<br />

did not promote<br />

water conservation<br />

and it allowed our<br />

base rate to have<br />

relatively minor<br />

increases–plus or<br />

minus two percent.”<br />

Jackson expects<br />

no changes to the<br />

approved rate structure<br />

unless something<br />

catastrophic<br />

happens.

Working to raise prostate cancer awareness<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

A loved one with prostate cancer pushed Canal<br />

Winchester resident Linda Hoetger to work to bring<br />

awareness of the disease by soliciting proclamations and<br />

resolutions around the state.<br />

In June 2009, her husband, Ray, was diagnosed with an<br />

aggressive form of prostate cancer at the age of 56.<br />

“I never knew what prostate cancer was until we heard<br />

those devastating words, which are taboo to say in public,”<br />

said Hoetger. “When we first started on our journey you<br />

never heard men or families talking about prostate cancer.<br />

My plasm ma donatio ons put<br />

money in<br />

my pock et today.<br />

octapharmaplasma. .com<br />

3467 Cleveland Ave.<br />

Columbus<br />

2740 Brice Rd.<br />

Reynoldsburg<br />

I knew we were not alone and there were other families<br />

out there that had this disease. I am grateful that Ray was<br />

one who wanted to share our journey in hopes that we<br />

could also help families on their journey.”<br />

Hoetger said she saw proclamations and resolutions for<br />

other cancers, but when she started searching for ones for<br />

prostate cancer awareness in Ohio, she only found a few.<br />

“There needs to be more education about the disease,”<br />

said Hoetger. “One misconception is that it is an ‘old man’s<br />

disease.’ That is not true. I did not consider my husband an<br />

old man at 56. We have friends in their 40’s with a diagnosis<br />

of prostate cancer. And have a friend who lost her son<br />

in his 30’s who died from the disease. Prostate cancer does<br />

not care about your age or race. It will strike at any<br />

time.”<br />

In <strong>September</strong> 2013, she asked Governor John<br />

Kasich’s office for a Resolution for Prostate Cancer<br />

Awareness, but when told there were none, she<br />

asked what she needed to do to change the situation.<br />

A year later, the first resolution was written.<br />

Hoetger continues to have one signed every year.<br />

She pursues the same official recognition with<br />

cities, villages and townships and shares her story<br />

in emails as the wife/caregiver of a prostate cancer<br />

survivor.<br />

“Every time I found an email for an elected official,<br />

I had a letter drafted up and would send it to<br />

all the elected officials —mayors, council members<br />

and trustees,” said Hoetger. “The first couple of<br />

years, only a few participated, but now it is growing<br />

more and more with each year.”<br />

The couple attends city<br />

council meetings for readings<br />

and proclamations,<br />

such as a recent proclamation<br />

read by Canal<br />

Winchester Mayor Mike<br />

Ebert on Sept. 4.<br />

“We were one of the first<br />

to help you get this going,”<br />

Ebert told Hoetger.<br />

According to Hoetger,<br />

Ohio now has over 200 entities<br />

supporting <strong>September</strong><br />

as Prostate Cancer<br />

Awareness Month.<br />

“Not only are the council<br />

members hearing the<br />

proclamation being read,<br />

“Looking at trends over the last few<br />

years, there’s been a steep decline,” Chiles<br />

said before commenting on an increasing<br />

reliance on online course materials and<br />

testing. “I caution you against writing off<br />

the grades on the report card.”<br />

Sotlar said the State Report Card is a<br />

snapshot of what is happening, but said to<br />

get a true picture of the district, one must<br />

look deeper.<br />

“We are looking at the letter grade,”<br />

said Sotlar, “but you have to look at more<br />

than the letter grade. This is a measuring<br />

tool and we’re going to own it.”<br />

“One misconception is that it is an ‘old man’s<br />

disease.’ That is not true. I did not consider my<br />

husband an old man at 56. We have friends in their<br />

40’s with a diagnosis of prostate cancer.”<br />

- Linda Hoetger<br />

are<br />

also hearing this and have come to us after and said,<br />

‘Thank you’ and know they are not alone,” Hoetger said.<br />

“Some have said they are ready to share their journey<br />

now.”<br />

Fire chief’s story<br />

Madison Township Fire Chief Jeff Fasone said he was<br />

diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2015, close to his 50th<br />

birthday.<br />

“I was devastated, especially after reading about it on<br />

the internet,” said Fasone. “There is some pretty scary<br />

stuff out there.”<br />

Armed with information from a friend who had gone<br />

through the same situation and options provided by his<br />

surgeon, his prostate was removed on his 50th birthday in<br />

August 2015.<br />

“The surgical team sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to me as they<br />

were putting me under,” said Fasone. “Due to the nature<br />

of my work, I was off for a few months. A less labor intensive<br />

occupation could have returned sooner. There are<br />

three time periods that prostate cancer generally returns<br />

if it is going to, those being two, four and 10 years out. I<br />

have passed the two year mark.”<br />

Fasone said a PSA test is a simple blood draw, which he<br />

strongly recommends to any male over 40. According to the<br />

National Cancer Institute, the PSA test measures the level<br />

of prostate specific antigen in the blood. The level is often<br />

elevated in men with prostate cancer.<br />

Expanding the effort<br />

Building on her grassroots efforts, in <strong>2018</strong>, Hoetger<br />

started sending emails to county commissioners, House of<br />

Representatives and members of Congress asking for their<br />

support. Many times she received an email back citing the<br />

impact prostate cancer had on the representative or their<br />

families.<br />

“Other families across the nation have asked for my<br />

help in getting proclamations and resolutions in their<br />

states,” said Hoetger. “I hope that one day families across<br />

the nation will know the support that has grown for<br />

prostate cancer awareness.”<br />

Education approved a contract with Dr.<br />

Rochelle Dunn to provide student mental<br />

health services at a rate of $50 per hour,<br />

not to exceed $32,000. The position is covered<br />

by IDEA (Individuals with<br />

Disabilities Education Improvement Act)<br />

funding.<br />

Companion action approved the placement<br />

of three Ohio State University and<br />

one Ashland University mental health<br />

interns, at the rate of $10 an hour, in district<br />

buildings for the <strong>2018</strong>-19 school year.<br />

The placement is also covered by IDEA.<br />

“Our goal is to remove barriers to<br />

achievement,” said Dunn, who is also an<br />

OSU professor.

Township fire stations to host<br />

Fire PreventionWeek events<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Fire Prevention Week in Madison Township is<br />

showcasing two stations this year with the week bookended<br />

in activities at Station 182 in Canal Winchester<br />

and Station 183 on Noe-Bixby Road in Columbus.<br />

Fire Safety Month is in October and fire departments<br />

designate the second week of the month as Fire<br />

Prevention Week.<br />

“Fire Prevention Month raises awareness of the<br />

dangers of fire and aids people in preparing for fire<br />

threats,” said Madison Township Fire Marshal Scott<br />

Hite.<br />

President Woodrow Wilson designated the first<br />

Fire Prevention Week in 1920. It is the longest honored<br />

public health and safety observance in the United<br />

States.<br />

Locally, the Madison Township Fire Department<br />

has station and truck tours scheduled at both stations,<br />

Decision on chickens<br />

Canal Winchester City Council upheld<br />

a Planning and Zoning Commission recommendation<br />

to deny a variance for Elizabeth<br />

Street property owner David Gilham to<br />

keep three chickens on less than the one<br />

acre city minimum. Gilham previously<br />

filed an appeal to council to overturn the<br />

recommendation, which was denied.<br />

Oct. 14 from 1-3 p.m.<br />

According to Hite, the department decided to split<br />

the event between the two stations in order to “showcase<br />

our newly opened fire station to the public and<br />

area residents of the township. The National Fire<br />

Protection Association, along with the Madison<br />

Township Fire Department urges people to stay<br />

informed and aware of current fire threats.”<br />

Leaf pick-up<br />

The city of Canal Winchester will begin annual curbside leaf<br />

collection on Oct. 1 and continue through Dec. 14.<br />

To avoid water backup in the event of rain, leaf piles must be<br />

placed behind the curb along the street. Residents are reminded<br />

that leaf piles may contain leaves only, as sticks, grass trimmings<br />

and other yard waste can cause damage to leaf collection equipment.<br />

Regular yard waste will continue to be picked up by Waste<br />

Management during scheduled trash collection.<br />

City crews follow specific routes covering all city streets, as<br />

weather permits, and cannot accept individual leaf pick up<br />

requests.<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 />

letters policy<br />

The <strong>Eastside</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 />

telephone number, or are signed with a pseudonym, will<br />

be rejected. PLEASE BE BRIEF AND TO THE<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 />

and climb rocks like they<br />

were a ladder - recently mentioned<br />

he contemplated hopping the short<br />

distance from the floor to the first<br />

step of a staircase and wondered if<br />

it was worth the chance of making<br />

his knees complain.<br />

Things like running as fast as we<br />

can were once common in our lives and they slip away from<br />

us without our consciously meaning for them to fade.<br />

Distractions of numerous sorts dictate to our attention. We<br />

start caring more about other activities and ideas that are<br />

different from when we were younger. But, as we get older,<br />

it makes one wonder what other common things we are not<br />

noticing as the years roll by.<br />

We change. We adapt. We grow in other ways.<br />

Hip Hop 5K for Hip Dysplasia Awareness<br />

<strong>September</strong> 23, <strong>2018</strong> - EASTSIDE MESSENGER - PAGE 5<br />

<strong>Messenger</strong> photos by Rick Palsgrove<br />

Amy Lee of Canal Winchester nears the finish line during the Hip Hop 5K for Hip<br />

Dysplasia Awareness held at Roger Hanners Park and through Canal Winchester on<br />

Sept. 15. Lee won the race with a time of 22:20. When asked if the course offered up<br />

any surprises, Lee said, “Just the heat. It’s hot for <strong>September</strong>.”<br />

Runners at the start of the Hip Hop 5K for Hip Dysplasia Awareness. The Hip Hop 5K<br />

Run/Walk was created to aid in promoting awareness and fundraising to assist the<br />

International Hip Dysplasia Institute in finding better and more efficient methods of<br />

diagnosis. As well as some less invasive forms of treatment to hopefully minimize the<br />

severe physical and mental repercussions of hip dysplasia. Hip dysplasia means that<br />

the bones of the hip joint are not aligned properly. It is a painful process where the ball<br />

slips in and out of the socket, which causes the hip to wear out much faster than normal.<br />

Think of a car’s tires and how they wear out faster when the car is out of alignment.<br />

Surgery to treat the condition is long, painful, invasive and multiple surgeries are<br />

needed more often than not. For information visit hipdysplasia.org.

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 />

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.”

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 />

DAR application workshop<br />

Eight years ago, Dwayne R. Spence Funeral<br />

Home in Canal Winchester had its first annual<br />

Community Shred Day as a way of giving back to<br />

the community that has supported them for nearly<br />

50 years.<br />

Along with document shredding, each year<br />

Dwayne R. Spence Funeral Home partners with<br />

the Canal Winchester Food Pantry who takes food<br />

and monetary donations, the Lions Club who collects<br />

used eyeglasses, the St. Vincent de Paul<br />

Society who accepts clothing and household<br />

items, and TDR LLC who accepts used electronics.<br />

This is truly a community service day.<br />

Community Shred Day has grown each year,<br />

starting out with about 225 vehicles dropping off<br />

recyclable paper and other reusable items in the<br />

first year to nearly 650 vehicles in 2017. Since the<br />

beginning Community Shred Day, Dwayne R.<br />

Spence Funeral Home has been fortunate to have<br />

the continued service of Boy Scouts Troop 256.<br />

The Elizabeth Sherman Reese Chapter,<br />

National Society of the Daughters of the<br />

American Revolution, will hold an application<br />

workshop on Oct. 20 from 1-4 p.m. The<br />

workshop will feature information on completing<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 />

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 />

Remembering 9-11<br />

www.columbusmessenger.com<br />

<strong>Messenger</strong> photos by Rick Palsgrove<br />

Madison Township police and firefighters march at the beginning of the 9-11 Memorial<br />

Service held at Motts Military Museum in Groveport on Sept. 11. “Our goal is to never<br />

let anyone forget what happened on Sept. 11, 2001,” said Motts Military Museum<br />

Director Warren Motts. The service was held in remembrance of the nearly 3,000 people<br />

who died during the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York, the<br />

Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and United Flight 93 which crashed in Shanksville, Pa.<br />

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.”<br />

Madison Township Fire Department retired Capt. Steve Arms (right) and firefighter<br />

Jason Loucks ring a bell in tribute to those who fell on Sept. 11, 2001.

I want to get this complaint out of the<br />

way before I begin the review for “A Simple<br />

Favor” and it is directed at the studio who<br />

produced this film. To whomever it may<br />

concern, the marketing was pitiful and at<br />

no point should the person in charge be<br />

tasked with promoting a film of this nature<br />

ever again.<br />

It was clear from watching this film that<br />

this person or persons had no idea how to<br />

pitch the concept to an audience. In one<br />

trailer, it was billed as a straight comedy.<br />

In another, a thriller. At no point in time<br />

did it convey the truth of this film and that<br />

is one of ridiculous trash. And I truly mean<br />

that in the best way possible.<br />

“A Simple Favor” is a bizarre, off-thewall<br />

(and rails) dark comedy with bite and<br />

wit. It’s one of the most entertaining films<br />

of the year and yet one of the strangest as<br />

well.<br />

It opens with not-so-popular vlogger<br />

Stephanie Smothers (Anna Kendrick)<br />

preparing to make feel better cookies for<br />

those low in spirits. As she’s readying the<br />

batter, she launches into why she felt it<br />

was important to make these particular<br />

cookies as she is struggling with the recent<br />

disappearance of her best friend.<br />

Flashing back to the weeks prior, we see<br />

Stephanie, who is generally viewed by her<br />

peers as an uptight, lonely spinster, signing<br />

up for a majority of the festive activities<br />

in her son’s elementary classroom. After<br />

hearing pointed comments about her lack<br />

of doing, well, anything else other than<br />

crafts, she tries to strike up a friendship<br />

with the mother of her son’s new playmate.<br />

At first, people think she is out of her<br />

depth for wanting to befriend Emily Nelson<br />

entertainment<br />

“ A Simple Favor” is an unexpected delight<br />

letter<br />

I want thank everyone who supported<br />

the building of Madison Township Fire<br />

Station 183 on Noe Bixby Road.<br />

The recent ribbon-cutting ceremony for<br />

the new station was a success. The support<br />

and vision of our current trustees Ed<br />

Dildine, John Kershner and John<br />

Pritchard and fiscal officer Laurie<br />

Vermeer, along with past trustees Gary<br />

McDonald and Victor Paini and retired fiscal<br />

officer Barb Adams was crucial.<br />

Thanks to retired Fire Chief Bob Bates and<br />

retired Fire Marshal Rick Stelzer, along<br />

with the Franklin County Prosecutor’s<br />

Office and Franklin County Central Ohio<br />

Community Improvement Commission<br />

land bank for their years of diligent work<br />

to get the old apartment complex torn<br />

down. I also want to thank the many state<br />

and county officials that assisted throughout<br />

the entire process.<br />

Thank you to the countless number of<br />

residents and employees who went above<br />

and beyond to assist in the building of<br />

The Reel Deal<br />

(Blake Lively), a rich<br />

and fabulous public<br />

relations manager at a<br />

fashion agency, but<br />

the two soon strike up<br />

a relationship that is<br />

equal parts supportive<br />

and stinging.<br />

by, we see them growing<br />

closer, and we see<br />

“A Simple Favor” is a bizarre,<br />

off-the-wall (and rails) dark comedy<br />

with bite and wit. It’s one of<br />

the most entertaining films of the<br />

year and yet one of the strangest<br />

as well.<br />

covet Emily’s life — her lovely home, her<br />

exciting job, her beautiful husband Sean<br />

(Henry Golding.)<br />

Then one day, Emily asks Stephanie for<br />

a simple favor and is never heard from<br />

again.<br />

Upon receiving confirmation of her<br />

death, Stephanie and Sean begin a romantic<br />

relationship. Shortly thereafter, she<br />

moves into their home and then strange<br />

things start to happen. Emily and Sean’s<br />

son Nicky (Ian Ho) begins to talk of seeing<br />

his mother, and then items around the<br />

home mysteriously appear and disappear.<br />

A haunting never crosses Stephanie’s<br />

Madison Township Fire Department says thanks<br />

Station 183. I appreciate the many hours<br />

that the levy and design committees committed<br />

to this project, as well as several<br />

individuals. A special thank you goes to the<br />

Bepler family for their “substation room”<br />

next door that allowed the medic crew to<br />

stay in the area and take runs prior to the<br />

opening of the station.<br />

The continued support from the city of<br />

Groveport, city of Canal Winchester and<br />

village of Obetz is important to our department.<br />

I want to extend a special thank you<br />

to all the elected officials from those entities<br />

that attended the ceremony. Thanks<br />

also to our firefighters and the firefighters<br />

from the neighboring departments of<br />

Columbus, Violet and Truro townships who<br />

were also in attendance.<br />

A huge thank you to the residents of<br />

Madison Township for supporting the 2015<br />

fire levy that built, staffed and equipped<br />

mind, yet sabotage does. ‘Is Emily still<br />

alive?’ she wonders. And if so, why is she<br />

hiding and trying to frame others for her<br />

death? Or maybe Stephanie is not so innocent<br />

after all.<br />

From start to finish, “A Simple Favor” is<br />

utterly bonkers and it revels in the fact.<br />

There are twists and turns and while most<br />

of those go nowhere, they are essential to<br />

the messy plot.<br />

This film goes all over the place and the<br />

actors are game, particularly Kendrick and<br />

Lively. I’ve never been a big fan of Lively’s<br />

acting, but she is so good in the role of<br />

Emily. She’s the kind of morally ambiguous<br />

character I think most actors would love to<br />

primarily known for comedic films like<br />

“The Heat” and “Spy,” “A Simple Favor” is<br />

an unexpected, demented delight that was<br />

given no marketing favor from its studio.<br />

Truthfully, its theme and the general<br />

atmosphere of ‘What the heck am I watching?’<br />

won’t be for everyone, but for those<br />

looking for an odd and oddly good time, do<br />

yourself a favor and catch this movie.<br />

Hydrant flushing<br />

Canal Winchester’s Division of Water<br />

opens fire hydrants in the community twice<br />

a year during its fire hydrant flushing<br />

schedule.<br />

Hydrant flushing allows water to flow<br />

through pipes, enhancing water quality by<br />

clearing sediment from mainline pipes.<br />

Flushing verifies proper operation of<br />

hydrants and valves and maintains firefighting<br />

capabilities. Fire hydrant flushing<br />

will be from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday—<br />

Friday, through Oct. 5.<br />

The water department offers tips for<br />

when crews flush hydrants in your area:<br />

•If you see a hydrant being flushed on<br />

your street, avoid running tap water, washing<br />

machines or dishwashers until flushing<br />

in your area is complete.<br />

•If you see hydrant flushing crews<br />

working, drive carefully and treat them<br />

like any other road construction crew.<br />

During or immediately following<br />

hydrant flushing, tap water may appear<br />

discolored. Although a slight discoloration<br />

may last for a few hours, it does not affect<br />

the taste or quality of the water. This discoloration<br />

only affects the appearance of<br />

the water and poses no health threat.<br />

Should you notice discoloration or other<br />

side effects from hydrant flushing, the<br />

water department suggests:<br />

•If you encounter discolored water, shut<br />

your water off and wait several minutes.<br />

After waiting, check the clarity by running<br />

cold water for a few minutes to allow new<br />

water to flow into your pipes. If the water<br />

is still discolored, wait a few minutes and<br />

check again. In some cases, it may be a few<br />

hours before the water is completely clear.<br />

•Avoid washing laundry during scheduled<br />

flushing hours. After hydrants in your<br />

area are flushed, wait until water runs<br />

clear from your tap, then begin with a load<br />

of dark laundry before doing lights or<br />

whites.<br />

•If water pressure or volume seems low,<br />

check faucet screens for trapped particles.<br />

For information about the fire hydrant<br />

flushing program, including when the city<br />

will flush in your area, contact Canal<br />

Winchester’s Division of Water at 614-837-<br />

Drug Drop Box<br />

The Madison Township Police<br />

Department is providing an opiate prescription<br />

“Drug Drop Box” for the community.<br />

This drop box is located in the lobby of<br />

the Madison Township Police Department,<br />

4567 Madison Lane, and will be accessible<br />

to the public during normal office hours<br />

Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.<br />

Madison Township Police Chief Gary<br />

York said the officers and staff are committed<br />

to serving the community and believe<br />

in helping to fight the opiate epidemic. Any<br />

person can walk-in and dispose of new or<br />

old pills, including prescription medications,<br />

or any other illegal substances and<br />

asked.<br />
