The annual Mums and Mummies took
place at Westgate Park on Sept. 14. For
more than two hours, goblins, witches,
fairies and royalty were spotted
throughout the park grounds competing
in contests, making crafts, playing
games, collecting candy and generally
having a great time during the community
event that was sponsored by the
Westgate Neighbors Association and
Friends of Westgate Park. Here are a few
scenes captured on that frightful day.

Franklin Township leaders want to give local students
real-life work experience before graduating.
At a recent board meeting, trustee John Fleshman gave
an update on a new logo they are hoping students at
Franklin Heights will design.
“After presenting this to the district, they wanted to get
their trade school involved, but we told them this project
must stay within the township,” Fleshman said. “We want
students from Franklin Heights to work on this since those
students live in the township.”
The project would include a new tagline for the township,
as well as a new logo. Currently, the tagline the
township would like students to use is “Franklin
Township, past, present and future,” and students would
come up with several logos for the township to chose from.
“After working with the school, it seems like the
best group to work on this is the digital images class
and they are very interested,” Fleshman said.
“However, instead of doing a contest, I would like
the township to make a donation of $250 to the
According to Fleshman, many teachers pay for
their own supplies and these funds would help the
class pay for ink and paper for the work they do.
The funds also would stay within that class and the
students who work on this logo would directly benefit
from the donation.
The township also would like to present the students
who work on the logo with a plaque and do a
presentation in front of the school.
“These students are the future and I want them
to look back in 20 years and be proud of a logo they

However, not all the trustees were on board with this.
Trustee Ralph Horn expressed concerns about spending
additional money on this.
“I agree they deserve recognition, but I’m not sure $250
is the appropriate amount,” Horn said.
“If you look at the property tax residents are paying, we
are already contributing to the school. Why should we have
to pay more?”
Horn said he would be more comfortable giving the
class $50-$150, instead of $250.
“The general fund is really tight right now and we are
spending $700 here and $600 there and it adds up,” Horn
said. “We have other things we need to fix in this township,
like potholes, and we need to watch our spending.”
Not all residents agreed with Horn’s comment and said
they would like to see their tax money used toward projects
“I don’t think $250 is a lot and this is the future of our
community,” said Mike Blevins, township resident. “If you
donate $250, I will match your donation or buy the
The board then unanimously agreed to proceed with the
donation and plague.
“We would like to have three or four logos presented to
us,” Fleshman said. “I’m really excited about this and want
to see that plaque hung in the school.”

making sure your leaves don’t fall in the
gutters,” said Kurt Keljo, committee chair
of the Franklin Soli and Water
Conservation District. “
According to Keljo, when leaves fall into
the gutters and get into the water, they put
nutrients in the water that shouldn’t be
there. Keljo also said residents can protect
the water by ensuring plants and vegetation
around the streams are protected as
“There is a reason we have a buffer
around streams and it is important we protect
these plants,” Keljo said.
Some of the things Keljo said township
leadership can do to protect the waterways
includes coordinating township cleanups,
starting a rain garden, executing a public
awareness campaign, ensuring there isn’t
stormwater runoff in construction sites
and maintaining township vehicles.
In other news, the board received an
update on the electric aggregation program.
The township’s existing program is
expiring in February 2019 and the township
has been discussing the bid process to
find a new electric provider.
According to Scott Belcastro of Trebel,
LLC, when the township bid on electric,
the prices were higher than what he
believes the township could receive.
“Our current rate is 5.65 and when we
bid out we received five bids of between
5.189 and 5.5,” Belcastro said. “5.1 is a
recent rate for a 33 month program, but I
think we could do better. I think we could
see rates of between 4.8 and 5.0”
With that in mind, the trustees agreed
to allow Belcastro to wait until after the
elections to rebid on the township’s electric
aggregation program. Belcastro said he
believes after the election, the township
would see better rates and no decision
needed to be made until later this year.
Township residents also voiced their
concerns after a new flag was hung at the
Prairie Township Community Center.
Residents said they didn’t like the new flag
that says “Love Prairie.”
“The idea of this was to create identify
and community within the township,” said
Tracy Hatmaker, township administrator.
“No one wanted to offend anyone with this
flag and the community center has authority
to hang it up.”
Prairie Township Fire Chief Chris
Snyder added that the township takes
meticulously care of all the flags in the
township and would be happy to pass this
off to residents if they want to take it over.
“During all national events, we take
care of this flag,” Snyder said. “We lower it
to half-staff, take it down and replace it
when needed and do a variety of other
things to care for the flags here. If someone
else wants to take this over, they can by all
means do it.”
According to residents, the biggest argument
is that any flag besides the American
flag should be hung on a separate flag pole
that is shorter than the flag the American
flag is on. Township officials agreed to
review this and get back with the community
in the coming weeks.

Joy Boston had her sights set on a beautiful
garden when she moved into her
home on S. Roys Avenue.
She envisioned bright and bold flowers,
thick and luscious plants, adorable figurines
scattered about and attractive
accents to give her new place that muchloved
Shortly after moving in, however, she
realized her big garden dreams were not
likely to come to fruition.
“There was way too much shade,” she
In the two decades since, Boston said
she has grown to love the trees that keep

“I plant many artificial flowers,” she
Still, that pang of sadness sometimes
penetrates her armor of acceptance when
she sees a particularly lovely garden.
“My daughter has a beautiful garden
that is full of sunflowers of varying
heights,” she said. “It makes me jealous
when I come over and look at it because I
know they could not thrive where I live.”
But that long-held notion of hers started
to shift in a most unconventional way
earlier this year.
It was a few months ago when Boston
and her husband John Karn were watching
a Do-it-Yourself show on television
when they saw a designer use wood carvings
to save a fallen tree.
“I thought it was very creative and
wanted to do something just like that
should a similar situation arise,” she said.
Coincidentally, it did when a tree of
theirs started to become too much of a burden.
“We had this pin oak that was just terrible
to clean up in the fall,” she said. “And
not only did it create that mess, it also
started to drip sap onto my husband’s car.
It got so bad he had to park across the

tree, Boston and Karn set out to find someone
who could possibly turn its remnants
into something sunny and beautiful.

tree in her front yard. She said she chose sunflowers for this
permanent display of public art because they make everyone
Scherer, a noted wood carver whose creations are all over the
“He’s very talented,” said Boston. “We had previously commissioned
him to make a carving of Tweedy Bird for our granddaughter
and were just blown away by his creation.”
She said they knew they had to ask if he could do this floral
project for them.
While flowers are not among his most requested carvings,
Scherer said he was up to the challenge.
“I just love doing stuff like this,” he said.
He began working on the remnants of the pin oak tree in early
October by carving four large sunflowers emerging from the top
and four smaller flowers on its trunk. He spent nearly 20 hours
working on the project and nearly 10 hours talking to residents
and passing motorists asking about the carving.
“It’s created a lot of foot traffic and traffic jams,” he said.
On Oct. 5, the eight-foot-tall sculpture was officially declared
complete and now Boston and the community will get to see sunflowers
in bloom all year-round.
“I think it’s just amazing,” said Boston as she circled the carving.
“It makes me so happy to look at it.”
She said she hopes it will have that same effect on her neighbors
and passersby too.
“I want them to be able to enjoy this just as much as I do.”

I embarked on my trip at Union Station
in Chicago with Seattle as the destination.
The Empire Builder is known as an iconic
train for Amtrak. It allows you to see some
of the country’s most stunning parts, not
easily or even impossible to be seen by car,
including Glacier National Park.
Since returning, I’ve had a handful of
people ask me about my experience. The
trip has been on their bucket lists as well,
though they have been unsure of whether
the added trip to Chicago to catch the train
is worth the experience.
I most definitely say “yes,” and if you’re
thinking about it, do it sooner rather than
later. The current administration is proposing
to defund Amtrak’s long-distance
routes, which means this could be the end
of the line for the Empire Builder. It’s an
unfortunate end for more than just the
travelers who love taking the transcontinental

you just have to share accommodations

enjoy public restrooms, like me, this
can be a challenge. The train bathrooms
are similar to an airline bathroom.

If you stay in a sleeper room, you’re provided
with bottled water. You can also purchase

•You have options. If you have a sleeper,
and don’t feel like conversing with
strangers, you can eat your meals in your
cabin. Your attendant will bring them to
you, and even set up the little fold-down
table for you. You can also hit up the little
store that sells hamburgers, pizza and
snacks, though you’ll have to pay separately
for those items.
•Don’t - I repeat - don’t miss your train.
Throughout the journey, the train will stop
to pick up or drop off passengers. During
some of those stops, Amtrak allows you to
step off the train for a few minutes.
Sometimes you may even get 45 minutes or
so to explore the area. Do not lose track of
time. The train will leave without you. I
asked my attendant how often this happens.
He replied, “more
than you would think.”

you’re heading west and racing the setting
sun, you’ll be ready for bed. The sunrise
comes early the next day as well.
•Travel during the summer. Amtrak
runs year-round, but in the summer, you
have more daylight hours, which means
you get to see more. However, winter views
can be just as breathtaking.
•Expect the unexpected. I was surprised
at what ended up being some of the most
beautiful parts of the trip. Sure, Glacier
National Park and the Wenatchee National
Forest (in Washington) were two of the
most beautiful parts of the trip. I expected
that. But what I didn’t expect was how
pretty Wisconsin was, or how cool it was to
ride along the Mississippi River. Though
many parts of Montana were flatter than
expected, it’s hard to get past why they call
it “Big Sky Country.”
•Take it all in. As I rode the train, I
realized how big - and small - the world is.
Out your window, everything seems so
incredibly grand. I even thought to myself
at one point that if you’re looking for isolation,
views from the Empire Builder provide
many options. I then realized, however,
that most of the neighbors - even when
they’re miles apart - probably know one
another better than I know my own neighbors
who are just feet away.
And yes, they really do yell, “All
aboard!” when it’s time to board the train.

The five-year financial forecast for the
South-Western City Schools District was
presented Oct. 8 at the board of education
meeting. In a summarization, Treasurer
Hugh Garside said the overall forecast is
sound but an eye will need to be kept on
what may happen in 2021.
“Our expenditures may slightly outpace
our revenue but these are very conservative
projections and things may change,” he
In regard to the district’s revenue,
Garside said there will be modest increases
due to reappraisals and state funding.
“Ninety-eight percent of our funding
comes from property taxes and state funding,”
He added that the state will draft a new
biennial budget this year and he projects

slight financial increases.
According to Garside, one hindrance of
the state’s allocation of funds to the district
is that South-Western has been deemed a
“We’ve been a capped district for quite a
while,” he said. “We’re going on six years
He said that due to the district’s classification
as a capped district, they do not
receive as much funding from the state as
the state foundation aid formula says they
should. Because of this, said Garside, the
district has missed out on at least $73 million
additional funds throughout that duration
for their revenue source.
“I think this is something we need to
think about when talking to our legislators,”
He admitted he does not believe the
capped classification will change soon, but
said something needs to be done because
the district has projected growth in enrollment
in the upcoming years.
An additional source of revenue for the
district is the Hollywood Casino, which
opened in 2012. The district receives
roughly $3 million annually in taxes from
Another positive in revenue and expenditure,
said Garside, is the phasing out of
the Win-Win agreement between the district
and Columbus City Schools. Under
the Win-Win, which was amended in 2016,
the district was required to pay Columbus
City Schools roughly $1.2 million annually
but that is being phased down by 20 percent
each year. By the end of 2021, the district
will no longer have to pay per the
In regards to expenditures, Garside said
they are projected to rise.
“Eighty percent of the district’s expenditures
are for personnel services,” he said.
District reviews financial forecast
Providing students with healthier choices

active all day long have earned
Columbus City Schools national recognition
from the U.S. Department of
Agriculture (USDA) and $108,000 in federal
funds to provide even more options in
All 110 schools in the district were recognized
for Excellence in Nutrition and
Physical Activity by the USDA’s Food and
Nutrition Services. By meeting federal
health and wellness criteria, 104 schools
earned the HealthierUS School Challenge:
Smarter Lunchroom Silver distinction; the
remaining schools earned the Bronze distinction.
“We have long emphasized the message
that healthy bodies fuel active minds,” said
Interim Superintendent Dr. John
In addition to the federal recognition,
He said though that amount may seem
high, they are on par or even a little below
districts of similar size.
“Some district’s personnel expenditures
are as high as 90 percent and that is where
they tend to get in trouble.”
He added that the personnel amount
also reflects collective bargaining agreements
negotiated between the board and
classified staff, administrative staff and
certified staff, respectively.
According to Garside, there have been
some changes to the drug program which
will save the district some money through
the use of mandatory generics.
Among the other expenditures are purchased
services, which are forecasted to
increase roughly 2 percent to 2.5 percent,
and supplies and materials, which was
forecasted to increase roughly 4.5 percent
over the five-year forecast.
Respectively, the forecast predicts revenue
of $273 million, $276 million and
$279 million and an expenditure of $256
million, $270 million and $284.5 million in
fiscal years 2019, 2020 and 2021.
Though Garside said the forecast has
predicted the rise in expenditure versus
the stream of revenue in 2021 there is no
cause for alarm.
“As I said before, those are conservative
estimates that may change when the May
forecast comes out,” he said. “Overall, the
district is in a great spot with our
He said one indicator of the health of a
district financially is in its cash balance. In
the forecast, the cash balance is projected
at $194 million, $198 million and $191.7
million in fiscal years 2019, 2020, and
“We’re in a nice spot,” Garside said.
“We’re not in panic mode.”

If you have yet to see “First Man” but
are under the impression that it is a sweeping
epic about the 1960s space race
between the United States and the Soviet
Union, allow me to dispel that notion: This
movie is nothing like that.
While that may be a deterrent for those
who were hoping for a theatrical adaptation
regarding this topic in the vein of a
Michael Bay film, it shouldn’t make you
dismiss it outright based on that alone.
“First Man” is a great film — a terrific
character study about an introverted man
thrust into the national spotlight while
struggling with repressed grief. It is quiet,
contemplative, at times breathtaking and
at times remarkably dull. It isn’t perfect,
and I’m not certain I would watch it again,
but it made me appreciate what it strived
to do nonetheless.
It begins in 1961 with civilian pilot Neil
Armstrong (Ryan Gosling) testing the
outer limits of the X-15. His experience in
the soon to be grounded flights are visually
inspired and absolutely terrifying to watch.
A word of warning though: if you suffer
from bouts of motion sickness, you may
need to look away during the opening
sequence, as well as a few others throughout.
Just as the Ohio native is climbing the
ranks in his professional life, his personal
life is being met with devastation as he and
his wife Janet (Claire Foy) learn of the
tumor growing in their young daughter’s
brain. Working as hard as he does in and
for his field, Neil searches far and wide for
doctors doing experimental treatments to
prolong Karen’s life but little more can be
Being a private person, though the film
slyly posits his reaction as a product of his
generation, Neil buries his grief and
immerses himself in work. Shortly after
this family tragedy, he applies for a position
with NASA Astronaut Group 2 and
relocates his family to Houston for a fresh
In the following years, we see the
advancement of space exploration and the
public’s divided reaction to the space race.
More intimately, we see the toll it takes on
the astronauts, some of whom are killed
trying to reach their dreams, as well as
that of their families. In regards to the
Armstrong’s, we see two young sons trying

Chicha is a happy,
playful pooch. She is
so silly and playful all

for a home where
she can be spoiled

and always have a

She seems to do well
with other dogs and
may enjoy having furry friends. She would do
“First Man” is moving and visually engaging
The Reel Deal
to get their father’s attention, a woman
struggling with putting on a happy face for
public documentation, and a man who
becomes obsessed with his work at the
expense of his mental and emotional wellbeing.
Though the film is set more than
half a century ago, it feels all too modern.
A majority of this film is the years leading
up to the moon landing — we see the
test flights, the stimulations, the mistakes,
the lives lost in pursuit of advancement. At
times, it feels draggy despite the emotional
punches this movie throws. But when it
comes time for the landing, however, the
suspense, wonder, visualization, pride and
sadness make you almost forget how long it
took to get there.
While it is definitely not an actionpacked
thriller, “First Man” is an effective
and affecting study on an American icon
and his private journey through grief. Had
it been billed that way, I probably wouldn’t
have seen people walking out of the theaters
due to boredom, but ultimately I felt
that was their loss. Though admittedly boring
at points, this is a wonderfully moving
film that is one of the better acted films
this year and one of the most visually
engaging. Grade: B
Dedra Cordle is a Messenger staff
writer and columnist.
These furry friends are available
for adoption at local
rescues and shelters
best in a home without children, as she can
be a little rough when playing. Come meet

Petal may only have
three legs but she
has all the spirit of
four legs. Petal came
to the county shelter
an unclaimed stray
with a broken femur
fracture which left her
in constant pain as
she tried to use it
despite its limitations.
Despite efforts to
save her leg, it had to
be amputated. It has
taken Petal a few
weeks after surgery to adjust to a threelegged
stride and to feel comfortable with
being held, with navigating steps, and with
balancing on uneven terrain. She is now
accepting the challenges in front of her with a
desire to conquer instead of retreat. Her new
home will need a fenced yard as leash walking
will require some endurance training. Her
new home will also need a minimum number
of steps as although she can maneuver them,
they are an unnecessary challenge for her
that could predispose her to unnecessary
injury and discomfort. Petal would be perfectly
content to be your one and only canine
companion but can co exist as long as her
personal space is respected and she is not
expected to share her food or bones. Petal is
up for adoption through the Franklin County
