When it comes to protecting natural resources, the

Lohstroh family has its sights set on the future.

“We look forward to continuing our conservation efforts

with our next generation,” said Jonathan

Lohstroh as he accepted the Conservation Farm Family

Award for Ohio’s southwest region with his daughter,

Julie, in his arms, and his wife,

Annie, and parents, George and

Michelle, at his side.

The Ohio Department of Agriculture

(ODA) bestowed the annual

award on the Lohstrohs and four

other families around the state on

Sept. 20 at the Farm Science Review

in London. This marked the 35th

year for the awards program.

“Ohio is very fortunate to have

some of the most fertile ground in the country for

growing a wide variety of crops, but none of that is

possible if we do not implement conservation practices

to take care of what we have,” said ODA Director

David Daniels. “These families have gone the extra

mile in conserving soil, water, woodland and wildlife

on the land they farm, and we thank them for their

dedication.”

The Lohstrohs farm approximately 1,000 acres in

Madison and Pickaway counties. They raise corn, soybeans,

pumpkins, wheat, hay, cover crops, and

sorghum-sudan grass for baled silage. They also tend

a 35-cow beef herd and operate a fall farm market that

offers pick-your-own pumpkins, hay rides, and educational

tours for school groups. For nutrient management,

they use variable rate technology for precision

placement.

The family has found many ways to pass along to

customers and fellow farmers what they’ve learned

when it comes to conservation. They talk to their fall

market customers about where food comes from and

the process of raising food in a sustainable manner. A

pollinator exhibit on the farm shows the importance

of bees. The farm also has served as

a demonstration site for livestock exclusion

fencing, Soil and Water Conservation

District (SWCD) tours,

pasture field days, a solar field day,

Farm Bureau meetings, and educator

workshops.

“Conservation is a multi-year,

multi-faceted pursuit,” said George

Lohstroh. “It takes a lot of people to

get where we’re at and a lot of input

from a lot of different disciplines.”

The family is always trying new practices on the

farm. Some work better than others, but all are learning

experiences, said Michelle Lohstroh.

“You don’t see the results always right away. You

have to be in it for the long haul,” she said.

The Lohstrohs thanked the SWCDs of Madison and

Pickaway counties and the Department of Agriculture

for assistance with the family’s conservation projects.

The Lohstrohs received $400 from the Ohio Farm

Bureau Federation and a plaque from ADS Hancor.

Since 1984, the Conservation Farm Family Awards

program has recognized 181 Ohio farm families.

Residents in Mount Sterling could see a dramatic increase in

their water and sewer bills due to legislation now under consideration

by village council.

The purpose of the proposed legislation is to raise funds to pay

back the crippling debt the village incurred as a result of enhancements

to the wastewater plant and construction of a new water plant.

“We have to pay $250,000 every six months because of the debt

previous administrations incurred as a result of these two projects,”

said Mayor Billy Martin. “When we make this payment in December,

we will be broke. (The fee increase) is our only option.”

The village owes $3.78 million for the work at the wastewater

plant and $9.5 million for construction of the new water plant.

“I can’t believe past administrations

burdened this small

community with this debt. We

never needed all of these things,”

Martin said. “The water plant

produces three times what we

need and alone costs $10,000 a

month for electricity. I call this

stupidity.”

The water plant produces

“We don’t take this decision

lightly and know the impact

this will have on

residents.”

–Becky Martin,

Mount Sterling village

council member

900,000 gallons of water a month; the village uses approximately

200,000 gallons a month.

Despite comments that the projects should have been scaled back,

the Ohio State Auditor says the village has to pay back the loans.

The proposed legislation calls for raising the monthly debt fee

for water and sewer by between $49.40 and $50.85 for residential

properties. For commercial businesses, the rate would increase by

$50.25. The volume rate paid by industrial businesses would go up

by $5.95.

Currently, residents pay a monthly debt fee of between $20.40

and $21.85, commercial businesses pay $21.25, and industrial businesses

pay a volume rate of $8.35.

“For residents, if you have a $30 water/sewer bill it will now be

$80, or if you have a $100 water/sewer bill it will be $150,” said

Becky Martin, council member. “Everyone’s bills won’t double. It is

just the debt fee that is increasing.”

She said the rate hike is not an easy decision for council members,

and they will be directly impacted, as well.

“I’m a village resident, too, and a business owner, so my bill is

going to go up in two places,” Martin said. “We don’t take this decision

lightly and know the impact this will have on residents. We

know people live on fixed incomes, but this is our only option. We

are doing the bare minimum to just pay our debt and ensure we

have money to cover improvements and repairs.”

Martin said council would revisit the increase in the future if the

village’s finances improve.

“No one is here trying to get rich. We are here because we love

this community and don’t want it to fold,” she said.

Business partners sought for internship program

By Lori Smith

Staff Writer

Pairing Madison County students with local businesses is the

focus of a new internship program coordinated by the Madison

County Chamber of Commerce, Madison County Future Inc., and

Tolles Career and Technical Center.

According to Steve Cawley, marketing and logistics instructor at

Tolles and the internship coordinator, the program is in the developmental

stages, but he expects organizers to start matching students

with businesses after the first of the year.

“We’re very excited about it,” Cawley

said, noting the idea came about after a

meeting at which business leaders lamented

the lack of qualified entry-level workers.

“They were saying: ‘We have the jobs, but

we don’t have the work force.’ Tolles has always

provided a similar program within our

building. Now all schools within the county

will be included.”

In addition to serving Tolles students,

the program will offer internship opportunities

to seniors from the Jonathan Alder,

Fairbanks, West Jefferson, London and

Madison-Plains school districts. Students

will choose from job shadowing, unpaid internships,

or paid internships and may be

able to perform the work as part of the regular

school day or on evenings or weekends,

depending on the opportunity.

“We just want the companies to give our

students experience in the work force,” Cawley

said. “I guess you could call it entry level,

but it’s not just running to get coffee and

doughnuts. They are actually working and

getting graded on their experience.”

Utilizing contacts from the Tolles advisory

board, the students may apply for the positions

and go through an interview process,

Cawley said. Student must be academically

on track to graduate in the spring, have a

grade point average of 2.5 or above, have a

95 percent or better attendance rate, and receive

the recommendation of an instructor.

“We may provide each business with two

or three candidates, and they will get to

choose one through an interview process,”

he explained.

Students are expected to have good organizational

skills, value teamwork, understand the importance of attendance

and punctuality, have a good work ethic, and be dressed

appropriately with good personal hygiene.

“Those qualities are pounded into their heads before they even

leave the building,” he said. “We tell them, ‘We want you to put a

good foot forward.’ ”

Although Cawley is still talking to various companies around the

county about the details of the internship program, he said Tolles

already has business connections through the 21 programs it offers,

including medical, automotive, construction, shipping, culinary and

much more.

“It really is a full spectrum,” he said, noting that many of the internships

can lead to further opportunities. He noted one student

who interned for an automotive company.

“She is now working there full time and also getting her college

paid for.”

Another student started in an administrative position at an engineering

firm and now runs the human resources department for

the entire company.

Once a student is accepted into the internship program, Cawley

will check back to make sure the student is fulfilling their end of

the agreement.

“It really is a win for the employer because they are getting some

help that they need, while the student is earning class credit and

gaining work experience,” he said.

David Kell, executive director of the Madison County Chamber

of Commerce and Madison County Future Inc., said businesses are

excited about the prospect of joining forces with the schools.

“They are saying they need quality employees of very different

levels,” he said. “The schools have been working on strengthening

their relationships with the area businesses, so why not take it

county-wide?”

Kell said big and small companies alike have responded positively

to the news of the internship program.

“We want it to be extremely successful, but we’re prepared to

start small and grow from there,” Kell said.

Businesses interested in creating an internship program should

contact David Kell at david@madisoncountyohio.org or Steve Cawley

at scawley@tollestech.com.

Not all council members support the proposal. Some argued the

village could take money from its capital improvement fund to cover

some of the costs until further research is done.

“This has been agonizing me for a while, and I’m wondering why

some of the loan debt can’t be paid out of the capital improvement

fund, so we don’t have to pass as much of this onto the residents

and businesses,” said Rebecca Burns, council member. “We would

have to get approval from the state to change our five-year plan,

but basically the RITA (regional income tax) money could go towards

this.”

Other council members rebutted, saying the use of capital improvement

funds would provide only a temporary fix, that the village

would be short on finances again in a few months. They also

said if they spend the capital improvement funds, the village won’t

have money to repair roads and make other upgrades. Currently,

the village has $230,000 in its capital improvements fund.

“We have looked into this. The auditor said we need to increase

the water/sewer bills and that this won’t fix the overall problem,”

Mayor Martin. “I get no pleasure in doing this and have made hundreds

of phone calls to the auditor and attorney general. This is what

needs to be done and is the minimum rate increase to pay our debt.”

The council voted 3-3 on the first reading of the fee increase legislation.

Those voting in favor of the proposed increases were Lowell

Anderson, Becky Martin and David Timmons. Council members Rebecca

Burns, Tammy VanSickle, and Tom Ward. Mayor Martin

broke the tie with a “yes” vote to move the legislation forward for a

second reading at council’s next meeting on Oct. 8.

If the legislation ends up passing, the increases will go into effect

on Jan. 1, 2019.

Protect against exposure to West Nile Virus

While there have been no confirmed human cases of West Nile

Virus (WNV) in Madison County this year, the threat of exposure

to WNV remains as we approach fall. Regardless of the season, I

encourage people to operate under the assumption that mosquitoes

are carrying encephalitis-causing illnesses that can make people really

quite sick. My simple advice is this: If you are going to be outside

in the late afternoon and evening, wear insect repellent.

Last year, Madison County Public Health staff found a pool of

mosquitoes that tested positive for WNV in August. Although no

mosquitoes have tested positive this year, the threat of WNV is

present. As of mid-September, 68 counties in Ohio have trapped and

submitted mosquitoes for testing. Of those 68 counties, 54 had at

least one mosquito pool test positive for WNV. Ohio Department of

Health data shows that 2,923 mosquito pools have tested positive

for WNV this year. We all know that mosquitoes are mobile, and it

is unlikely that they respect county borders. So even with no positive

pools of mosquitoes here in Madison, it is pretty evident that

WNV can be found everywhere.

West Nile Virus is an arbovirus that was first discovered in the

United States in 1999. WNV is most commonly spread by infected

mosquitoes and can lead to severe fever, encephalitis (inflammation

of the brain) or meningitis (inflammation of the lining of the brain

and spinal cord).

The most common mosquito in Ohio, the northern house mosquito,

or Culex pipiens, carries WNV. Mosquitoes become infected

when they feed on infected birds. Infected mosquitoes can then

spread the virus to humans and other animals when they bite.

Ohio has had 23 confirmed human cases of WNV this year. Approximately

80 percent of people who are infected with WNV will

not show any symptoms, but there is no way to know in advance if

you will develop an illness or not.

Those who develop symptoms usually

do so between three and 14 days after

they are bitten by the infected mosquito.

About 20 percent of people experience mild symptoms

of WNV. Mild symptoms include fever, headache,

body aches, nausea, vomiting, and sometimes swollen

lymph glands or a skin rash on the chest, stomach, and

back. Symptoms can last for a few days to as long as several

weeks.

About one in 150 people infected with WNV will develop

severe illness. Severe symptoms can include high

fever, headache, neck stiffness, disorientation, coma,

tremors, convulsions, muscle weakness, vision loss,

numbness and paralysis. These symptoms may last several

weeks and the neurological effects may be permanent.

There is no specific treatment for WNV infection

and care is based on symptoms.

Many species of mosquitoes are active from dusk to

dawn. However, some species will bite during the day,

as well. Approved repellents are the most effective line

of defense against WNV and mosquito bites. When you

are outdoors, use repellents containing DEET, picaridin,

IR3535, oil of lemon eucalyptus or para-menthane-diol

(PMD). It is also important to follow

the directions on the package for

reapplication. Repellents that claim

to be all-natural or made of essential

oils or devices that you wear have not

been proven to be effective.

Other activities you can do to help

reduce your risk of WNV include:

• remove standing water from

items such as birdbaths, pet dishes,

old tires, small wading pools, buckets

and toys laying in the yard;

• use screens on windows and

doors and repair holes if you see them;

• wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants especially

in the evening;

• protect younger children and babies with mosquito

netting over baby carriers and strollers.

If you have questions about WNV or mosquito control,

contact Madison County Public Health at (740)

Fan of tightly fought football games

I attended the London High School

football game on Sept. 21. I enjoyed

watching the enthusiasm of the fans and

team and enjoyed the high school football atmosphere.

London is an explosive team and will be tested in

their next games. My comment, in general and without

criticism of the football staff: The score was 81-7, and

London could have scored 100. What is a coaching staff

to do in a game like this? I do not think it is a learning

experience for either team to go

through a game like this. As a

spectator, I enjoy the close, tightly

fought games, which I know will be coming up.

London team, keep up the good work and win the

rest of your games.

London Mayor Patrick Closser (second from left) proclaimed Sept. 17-23 as Constitution

Week in the city of London. On hand were members of the London chapter of the

National Society Daughters of the American Revolution: (from left) Nancy Robinson,

national defense chair; Bonnie Stout, Constitution Week chairperson; and Vicki Carner,

regent. In 1955, the national society petitioned Congress to set aside Sept. 17-23 each

year for the observance of Constitution Week. The resolution was adopted by the Congress

and signed into public law on Aug. 2, 1956, by President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

Senior Rachel Guiette is

London Rotary Club’s September

Student of the Month at

Madison-Plains High School.

Madison-Plains administrators

choose students of the

month based on academic and

extracurricular achievement

and positive character.

Guiette has a 3.780 unweighted

grade point average

and is ranked second in her

class. Her favorite class is

anatomy.

She has played varsity

softball for three years and

was varsity team captain for

one year. She has been a member of the

powerlifting team for two years and placed

second at state both years.

A two-year member of National Honor

Society, Guiette is this year’s secretary. She

also has served as the junior class and senior

class secretary. She has been a member

of FFA for four years, student council for

two years, was an attendant on the homecoming

court as a sophomore, and is on the

homecoming court this year.

When asked to name a school staffer who

has served as an inspiration, she said,

“Coach Mike Siders is an inspiration to me

because he genuinely cares about all of his

Rachel Guiette

students and pushes us to be

the best that we can be.”

Siders said of Guiette,

“Rachel Guiette is a true, dedicated

and determined leader

for Madison-Plains. She is not

only a standout in the classroom

with putting forth hard

work to accomplish her academic

goals, but also is currently

ranked second in the

state for powerlifting in her

weight class. This is only a

minor accomplishment of

hers. Rachel is always looking

for what comes next or tries to

engage in what is to come to

help make Madison-Plains a better place.

She truly is an ideal role model for all students

at Madison-Plains.”

After graduation, Guiette plans to attend

a four-year college and major in nursing.

She would like to specialize in intensive

care. Guiette is the daughter of Timothy

and Lisa Guiette.

The London Rotary Club has a proud history

dating back to 1929. It is a member of

Rotary International, a volunteer organization

of 1.2 million business and professional

leaders united worldwide to provide humanitarian

service and help build goodwill and

peace.

Learn about starting a business at free workshop

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

Have an idea for a business but need to know how to get it off

State Community College is holding a start-up business development

“This is a great opportunity to talk to experts about

your idea and have them help you flesh it out in a structured

environment,” said Tom Fisher, a member of the

Downtown London Association, which is helping to coordinate

the event.

The two-part workshop will cover the following topics:

* how to find, reach and connect with customers;

* legal business structures;

* tax requirements;

* how to market and sell your product or service;

* how to write a business plan; and

* access to sources of financing.

Certified business advisors from the Small Business

Development Center, along with attorneys, accountants,

bankers and other business experts, will lead the

workshop. They will evaluate participants’ initial concepts,

determine their readiness, and provide an

overview of the start-up process.

“It’s the same type of workshop you would get at the

center’s fixed site in Columbus, but by bringing it to

London, you don’t have to travel to Franklin County to

get it,” Fisher said.

The Ohio Small Business Development Center at

Columbus State provides consulting, advising and educational

programs designed to support growth-oriented

small businesses and entrepreneurs in central Ohio.

The center is supported by the U.S. Small Business Administration,

the Ohio Development Services Agency,

the city of Columbus, Columbus State, and other local

partners.

To sign up for the Oct. 24-25 workshop, go to the

Downtown London Association Facebook page, click on

“Events,” then scroll down to “Get Tickets.”

Fisher at (614) 226-4468.

Santino Carnevale and his Cancer Crusaders manned a lemonade stand at this year’s

West Jefferson Ox Roast parade over Labor Day weekend: (front row, from left) Lauren

Friessen, Avery Friessen, Mitchell Peters, Blake Bogenrife, Nate Godinez, Zac Thompson;

(back row) Wyatt Keyt, Ethan Friessen, Alexa Bogenrife, Santino Carnevale, Caden Bateman,

Brett Bogenrife. Santino is hosting a community tailgate party on Oct. 6. All proceeds

benefit The James cancer center.

WJ tailgate to benefit

cancer research fund

Local resident Santino Carnevale is hosting

his 2nd Annual Community Tailgate

Party at 2 p.m. Oct. 6 prior to Ohio State

University’s game against Indiana. The

event will take place in the parking lot at

Pat’s Pizza & Pub, 55 E. Main St., West Jefferson.

Proceeds benefit cancer research.

Pre-game activities include a cornhole

tournament (sign-ups start at 1 p.m.), music

by The Lost River Band, a beer truck, silent

auction, 50/50 raffle and football square.

Pumpkins will be available to decorate for a

donation.

Santino has found himself in the cancer

world the entirety of his life. In March 2006,

just 10 days after his parents, Michael and

Brooke Carnevale, discovered they were expecting

him, Michael was diagnosed with

adenoid cystic carcinoma–a rare head and

neck cancer.

In 2015, at only 9 years old, Santino

made the decision to stand up and do something

in the fight against cancer. At such a

young age, he already possessed a desire to

help others going through similar battles.

Santino began by organizing a lemonade

stand and bake sale at the West Jefferson

Ox Roast, held annually on Labor Day

weekend. Santino intended to honor his father,

as well as his grandfather, the late

Franklin County Sheriff Jim Karnes, who

passed away when Santino was 4 years old

from pancreatic cancer.

The first year of the lemonade stand,

Santino’s efforts raised $5,000 and he has

never looked back. Santino formed his initiative

known as “Santino’s Crusade for a

Cancer-Free World.” In addition to the annual

lemonade stand and bake sale, Santino

hosts an OSU Tailgate party in downtown

West Jefferson, OH. His family, friends and

classmates have joined him in his efforts.

Santino is known throughout The James-

Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer

in Columbus as one of the youngest

adolescents to establish a fund and is often

referred to as “Santino, the Cancer Crusader!”

Santino created the Head and Neck

Cancer Strategic Support Fund at The

James in his father’s honor in 2015. Unfortunately,

Michael succumbed to his long

battle with cancer in the fall of 2016, but

that hasn’t slowed Santino’s efforts.

Proceeds raised from Santino’s initiatives

have exceeded $41,000 in the past

three years for the Head and Neck Cancer

Strategic Support Fund. In addition, Santino

received the 2018 Jefferson Award, presented

by WBNS-10TV, Schoedinger

Funeral and Cremation Services, and Lifeline

of Ohio to recognize individuals who do

extraordinary things in their community

without expecting anything in return. To

date, Santino is the youngest person in history

to receive the Jefferson Award. Santino

also serves as a member of the James Ambassadors

Society and is the youngest member

inducted into the Society.
