The annual Mums and Mummies took<br />

place at Westgate Park on Sept. 14. For<br />

more than two hours, goblins, witches,<br />

fairies and royalty were spotted<br />

throughout the park grounds competing<br />

in contests, making crafts, playing<br />

games, collecting candy and generally<br />

having a great time during the community<br />

event that was sponsored by the<br />

Westgate Neighbors Association and<br />

Friends of Westgate Park. Here are a few<br />

Prairie Township residents were<br />

reminded of the importance of protecting<br />

their streams. At a recent board meeting,<br />

representatives from Franklin Soil and<br />

helpful tips for the community to be more<br />

environmentally friendly.<br />

“There are many simple steps you can<br />

take to protect our streams, including having<br />

rain gardens, ensuring fertilizer<br />

Franklin Township leaders want to give local students<br />

real-life work experience before graduating.<br />

At a recent board meeting, trustee John Fleshman gave<br />

an update on a new logo they are hoping students at<br />

Franklin Heights will design.<br />

“After presenting this to the district, they wanted to get<br />

their trade school involved, but we told them this project<br />

must stay within the township,” Fleshman said. “We want<br />

students from Franklin Heights to work on this since those<br />

students live in the township.”<br />

The project would include a new tagline for the township,<br />

as well as a new logo. Currently, the tagline the<br />

township would like students to use is “Franklin<br />

Township, past, present and future,” and students would<br />

come up with several logos for the township to chose from.<br />

“After working with the school, it seems like the<br />

best group to work on this is the digital images class<br />

and they are very interested,” Fleshman said.<br />

“However, instead of doing a contest, I would like<br />

the township to make a donation of $250 to the<br />

entire class.”<br />

According to Fleshman, many teachers pay for<br />

their own supplies and these funds would help the<br />

class pay for ink and paper for the work they do.<br />

The funds also would stay within that class and the<br />

students who work on this logo would directly benefit<br />

from the donation.<br />

The township also would like to present the students<br />

who work on the logo with a plaque and do a<br />

presentation in front of the school.<br />

“These students are the future and I want them<br />

to look back in 20 years and be proud of a logo they<br />

created,” Fleshman<br />

said.<br />

However, not all the trustees were on board with this.<br />

Trustee Ralph Horn expressed concerns about spending<br />

additional money on this.<br />

“I agree they deserve recognition, but I’m not sure $250<br />

is the appropriate amount,” Horn said.<br />

“If you look at the property tax residents are paying, we<br />

are already contributing to the school. Why should we have<br />

to pay more?”<br />

Horn said he would be more comfortable giving the<br />

class $50-$150, instead of $250.<br />

“The general fund is really tight right now and we are<br />

spending $700 here and $600 there and it adds up,” Horn<br />

said. “We have other things we need to fix in this township,<br />

like potholes, and we need to watch our spending.”<br />

Not all residents agreed with Horn’s comment and said<br />

they would like to see their tax money used toward projects<br />

like this.<br />

“I don’t think $250 is a lot and this is the future of our<br />

community,” said Mike Blevins, township resident. “If you<br />

donate $250, I will match your donation or buy the<br />

plaque.”<br />

The board then unanimously agreed to proceed with the<br />

donation and plague.<br />

“We would like to have three or four logos presented to<br />

us,” Fleshman said. “I’m really excited about this and want<br />

to see that plaque hung in the school.”<br />

Hurry, spots fill up quickly!<br />

making sure your leaves don’t fall in the<br />

gutters,” said Kurt Keljo, committee chair<br />

of the Franklin Soli and Water<br />

Conservation District. “<br />

According to Keljo, when leaves fall into<br />

the gutters and get into the water, they put<br />

nutrients in the water that shouldn’t be<br />

there. Keljo also said residents can protect<br />

the water by ensuring plants and vegetation<br />

around the streams are protected as<br />

well.<br />

“There is a reason we have a buffer<br />

around streams and it is important we protect<br />

these plants,” Keljo said.<br />

Some of the things Keljo said township<br />

leadership can do to protect the waterways<br />

includes coordinating township cleanups,<br />

starting a rain garden, executing a public<br />

awareness campaign, ensuring there isn’t<br />

stormwater runoff in construction sites<br />

and maintaining township vehicles.<br />

In other news, the board received an<br />

update on the electric aggregation program.<br />

The township’s existing program is<br />

expiring in February 2019 and the township<br />

has been discussing the bid process to<br />

find a new electric provider.<br />

According to Scott Belcastro of Trebel,<br />

LLC, when the township bid on electric,<br />

the prices were higher than what he<br />

believes the township could receive.<br />

“Our current rate is 5.65 and when we<br />

bid out we received five bids of between<br />

5.189 and 5.5,” Belcastro said. “5.1 is a<br />

recent rate for a 33 month program, but I<br />

think we could do better. I think we could<br />

see rates of between 4.8 and 5.0”<br />

With that in mind, the trustees agreed<br />

to allow Belcastro to wait until after the<br />

elections to rebid on the township’s electric<br />

aggregation program. Belcastro said he<br />

believes after the election, the township<br />

would see better rates and no decision<br />

needed to be made until later this year.<br />

Township residents also voiced their<br />

concerns after a new flag was hung at the<br />

Prairie Township Community Center.<br />

Residents said they didn’t like the new flag<br />

that says “Love Prairie.”<br />

“The idea of this was to create identify<br />

and community within the township,” said<br />

Tracy Hatmaker, township administrator.<br />

“No one wanted to offend anyone with this<br />

flag and the community center has authority<br />

to hang it up.”<br />

Prairie Township Fire Chief Chris<br />

Snyder added that the township takes<br />

meticulously care of all the flags in the<br />

township and would be happy to pass this<br />

off to residents if they want to take it over.<br />

“During all national events, we take<br />

care of this flag,” Snyder said. “We lower it<br />

to half-staff, take it down and replace it<br />

when needed and do a variety of other<br />

things to care for the flags here. If someone<br />

else wants to take this over, they can by all<br />

means do it.”<br />

According to residents, the biggest argument<br />

is that any flag besides the American<br />

flag should be hung on a separate flag pole<br />

that is shorter than the flag the American<br />

flag is on. Township officials agreed to<br />

review this and get back with the community<br />

in the coming weeks.

<strong>October</strong> 21, <strong>2018</strong> - WESTSIDE MESSENGER - PAGE 3<br />

By Dedra Cordle<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Joy Boston had her sights set on a beautiful<br />

garden when she moved into her<br />

home on S. Roys Avenue.<br />

She envisioned bright and bold flowers,<br />

thick and luscious plants, adorable figurines<br />

scattered about and attractive<br />

accents to give her new place that muchloved<br />

feel.<br />

Shortly after moving in, however, she<br />

realized her big garden dreams were not<br />

likely to come to fruition.<br />

“There was way too much shade,” she<br />

said.<br />

In the two decades since, Boston said<br />

she has grown to love the trees that keep<br />

her neighborhood cool but less flower<br />

friendly and adapted well to her surroundings.<br />

“I plant many artificial flowers,” she<br />

admitted.<br />

Still, that pang of sadness sometimes<br />

penetrates her armor of acceptance when<br />

she sees a particularly lovely garden.<br />

“My daughter has a beautiful garden<br />

that is full of sunflowers of varying<br />

heights,” she said. “It makes me jealous<br />

when I come over and look at it because I<br />

know they could not thrive where I live.”<br />

But that long-held notion of hers started<br />

to shift in a most unconventional way<br />

earlier this year.<br />

It was a few months ago when Boston<br />

and her husband John Karn were watching<br />

a Do-it-Yourself show on television<br />

when they saw a designer use wood carvings<br />

to save a fallen tree.<br />

“I thought it was very creative and<br />

wanted to do something just like that<br />

should a similar situation arise,” she said.<br />

Coincidentally, it did when a tree of<br />

theirs started to become too much of a burden.<br />

“We had this pin oak that was just terrible<br />

to clean up in the fall,” she said. “And<br />

not only did it create that mess, it also<br />

started to drip sap onto my husband’s car.<br />

It got so bad he had to park across the<br />

street.”<br />

With plans to cut down that bothersome<br />

tree, Boston and Karn set out to find someone<br />

who could possibly turn its remnants<br />

into something sunny and beautiful.<br />

<strong>Westside</strong> resident Joy Boston recently commissioned wood<br />

carving artist Ted Scherer to design sunflowers from a chopped<br />

tree in her front yard. She said she chose sunflowers for this<br />

permanent display of public art because they make everyone<br />

happy.<br />

Scherer, a noted wood carver whose creations are all over the<br />

state.<br />

“He’s very talented,” said Boston. “We had previously commissioned<br />

him to make a carving of Tweedy Bird for our granddaughter<br />

and were just blown away by his creation.”<br />

She said they knew they had to ask if he could do this floral<br />

project for them.<br />

While flowers are not among his most requested carvings,<br />

Scherer said he was up to the challenge.<br />

“I just love doing stuff like this,” he said.<br />

He began working on the remnants of the pin oak tree in early<br />

<strong>October</strong> by carving four large sunflowers emerging from the top<br />

and four smaller flowers on its trunk. He spent nearly 20 hours<br />

working on the project and nearly 10 hours talking to residents<br />

and passing motorists asking about the carving.<br />

“It’s created a lot of foot traffic and traffic jams,” he said.<br />

On Oct. 5, the eight-foot-tall sculpture was officially declared<br />

complete and now Boston and the community will get to see sunflowers<br />

in bloom all year-round.<br />

“I think it’s just amazing,” said Boston as she circled the carving.<br />

“It makes me so happy to look at it.”<br />

She said she hopes it will have that same effect on her neighbors<br />

and passersby too.<br />

“I want them to be able to enjoy this just as much as I do.”<br />

through panoramic windows.<br />

I embarked on my trip at Union Station<br />

in Chicago with Seattle as the destination.<br />

The Empire Builder is known as an iconic<br />

train for Amtrak. It allows you to see some<br />

of the country’s most stunning parts, not<br />

easily or even impossible to be seen by car,<br />

including Glacier National Park.<br />

Since returning, I’ve had a handful of<br />

people ask me about my experience. The<br />

trip has been on their bucket lists as well,<br />

though they have been unsure of whether<br />

the added trip to Chicago to catch the train<br />

is worth the experience.<br />

I most definitely say “yes,” and if you’re<br />

thinking about it, do it sooner rather than<br />

later. The current administration is proposing<br />

to defund Amtrak’s long-distance<br />

routes, which means this could be the end<br />

of the line for the Empire Builder. It’s an<br />

unfortunate end for more than just the<br />

travelers who love taking the transcontinental<br />

route.<br />

As my attendant on the train mentioned<br />

at various stops along the way, many residents<br />

of small communities rely on the<br />

proximity of the train for transportation if<br />

traveling by car isn’t an option. Not even<br />

Greyhound comes their way.<br />

For just over 2,200 miles in just under<br />

two days, I traveled across the country with<br />

strangers, yet left the experience feeling<br />

fulfilled I had accomplished something,<br />

even though all I did was step foot onto a<br />

train.<br />

If you’re thinking<br />

of taking the Empire<br />

Builder or any longdistance<br />

train, here<br />

are a few things I<br />

learned along the<br />

way.<br />

•Invest in a room.<br />

Riding the Empire<br />

Builder is more than<br />

a mode of transportation,<br />

especially<br />

if you’re traveling<br />

from Chicago to one<br />

of its endpoints,<br />

either Seattle or<br />

Portland. The duration<br />

of the trip is two<br />

days, but that spans<br />

over two nights. If<br />

you like a little privacy<br />

and need to lie<br />

flat to sleep, you’ll<br />

want to invest in a<br />

sleeper room.<br />

•Know your limits.<br />

When I traveled<br />

on Amtrak, I stayed<br />

in what’s called a<br />

roomette. It’s the<br />

size of a closet with<br />

two chairs. Those<br />

two chairs then fold<br />

www.columbusmessenger.com<br />

Cross-country train trip was an eye opening experience<br />

Life Moments<br />

Christine Bryant<br />

down into a bed. If you have someone with<br />

you, there’s an additional bed that drops<br />

down from the ceiling. This type of room is<br />

more expensive than buying a coach ticket,<br />

but less expensive than getting a bedroom,<br />

which includes an in-room sink, toilet and<br />

shower. Because of this, bedrooms are larger<br />

in size.<br />

Different trains that journey to various<br />

parts of the country have versions of this.<br />

For instance, some roomettes have a toilet<br />

as well. On the Empire Builder, there’s a<br />

larger family room available that makes<br />

traveling with young ones or several adults<br />

easier.<br />

This is where knowing your limits comes<br />

in handy. If you get a roomette, you can<br />

still take a shower and go to the bathroom;<br />

you just have to share accommodations<br />

with others in your car. If you don’t particularly<br />

enjoy public restrooms, like me, this<br />

can be a challenge. The train bathrooms<br />

are similar to an airline bathroom.<br />

•Don’t bring food, except maybe snacks.<br />

If you stay in a sleeper room, you’re provided<br />

with bottled water. You can also purchase<br />

drinks and even beer in a small store<br />

located in one of the cars. I found that your<br />

attendant (every car has a personal attendant)<br />

will get you what you need. Those<br />

who work on the train are incredibly<br />

accommodating.<br />

There’s absolutely no need to bring food<br />

unless you want to bring your own snacks.<br />

The food served during meal time was<br />

incredible, and if you purchase a sleeper<br />

cabin, it’s all included in your ticket price.<br />

So indulge in the salmon or item you may<br />

only order during a special occasion. It’s<br />

worth it.<br />

•Don’t be afraid to have a conversation.<br />

Everyone is in the same boat as you. Most<br />

of the people on my train were couples or<br />

singles traveling alone, yet during meal<br />

time, you get seated with at least one to<br />

two people you don’t know. I was surprised<br />

how many people weren’t from a community<br />

along the route. Many had traveled from<br />

the South to experience the Empire<br />

Builder.<br />

•You have options. If you have a sleeper,<br />

and don’t feel like conversing with<br />

strangers, you can eat your meals in your<br />

cabin. Your attendant will bring them to<br />

you, and even set up the little fold-down<br />

table for you. You can also hit up the little<br />

store that sells hamburgers, pizza and<br />

snacks, though you’ll have to pay separately<br />

for those items.<br />

•Don’t - I repeat - don’t miss your train.<br />

Throughout the journey, the train will stop<br />

to pick up or drop off passengers. During<br />

some of those stops, Amtrak allows you to<br />

step off the train for a few minutes.<br />

Sometimes you may even get 45 minutes or<br />

so to explore the area. Do not lose track of<br />

time. The train will leave without you. I<br />

asked my attendant how often this happens.<br />

He replied, “more<br />

than you would think.”<br />

•Keep your eyes<br />

peeled. I saw lots of<br />

deer and birds, but<br />

while in Glacier<br />

National Park, I also<br />

caught a quick glimpse<br />

of a bear. You never<br />

know what you may see. Which brings me<br />

to …<br />

•Don’t overpack. You don’t need to bring<br />

tons of books or magazines, and you don’t<br />

need to download movies on your phone or<br />

iPad. During daylight hours, you’ll be hard<br />

pressed to take your eyes off the window.<br />

By the time night rolls around, especially if<br />

you’re heading west and racing the setting<br />

sun, you’ll be ready for bed. The sunrise<br />

comes early the next day as well.<br />

•Travel during the summer. Amtrak<br />

runs year-round, but in the summer, you<br />

have more daylight hours, which means<br />

you get to see more. However, winter views<br />

can be just as breathtaking.<br />

•Expect the unexpected. I was surprised<br />

at what ended up being some of the most<br />

beautiful parts of the trip. Sure, Glacier<br />

National Park and the Wenatchee National<br />

Forest (in Washington) were two of the<br />

most beautiful parts of the trip. I expected<br />

that. But what I didn’t expect was how<br />

pretty Wisconsin was, or how cool it was to<br />

ride along the Mississippi River. Though<br />

many parts of Montana were flatter than<br />

expected, it’s hard to get past why they call<br />

it “Big Sky Country.”<br />

•Take it all in. As I rode the train, I<br />

realized how big - and small - the world is.<br />

Out your window, everything seems so<br />

incredibly grand. I even thought to myself<br />

at one point that if you’re looking for isolation,<br />

views from the Empire Builder provide<br />

many options. I then realized, however,<br />

that most of the neighbors - even when<br />

they’re miles apart - probably know one<br />

another better than I know my own neighbors<br />

who are just feet away.<br />

And yes, they really do yell, “All<br />

aboard!” when it’s time to board the train.<br />

The five-year financial forecast for the<br />

meeting. In a summarization, Treasurer<br />

Hugh Garside said the overall forecast is<br />

what may happen in 2021.<br />

“Our expenditures may slightly outpace<br />

our revenue but these are very conservative<br />

said.<br />

In regard to the district’s revenue,<br />

Garside said there will be modest increases<br />

due to reappraisals and state funding.<br />

“Ninety-eight percent of our funding<br />

comes from property taxes and state funding,”<br />

he said.<br />

slight financial increases.<br />

According to Garside, one hindrance of<br />

the state’s allocation of funds to the district<br />

is that South-Western has been deemed a<br />

capped district.<br />

“We’ve been a capped district for quite a<br />

while,” he said. “We’re going on six years<br />

now.”<br />

He said that due to the district’s classification<br />

as a capped district, they do not<br />

receive as much funding from the state as<br />

the state foundation aid formula says they<br />

should. Because of this, said Garside, the<br />

district has missed out on at least $73 million<br />

additional funds throughout that duration<br />

for their revenue source.<br />

“I think this is something we need to<br />

think about when talking to our legislators,”<br />

he said.<br />

He admitted he does not believe the<br />

capped classification will change soon, but<br />

said something needs to be done because<br />

the district has projected growth in enrollment<br />

in the upcoming years.<br />

An additional source of revenue for the<br />

district is the Hollywood Casino, which<br />

opened in 2012. The district receives<br />

roughly $3 million annually in taxes from<br />

the casino.<br />

Another positive in revenue and expenditure,<br />

said Garside, is the phasing out of<br />

the Win-Win agreement between the district<br />

and Columbus City Schools. Under<br />

the Win-Win, which was amended in 2016,<br />

the district was required to pay Columbus<br />

City Schools roughly $1.2 million annually<br />

but that is being phased down by 20 percent<br />

each year. By the end of 2021, the district<br />

will no longer have to pay per the<br />

amended agreement.<br />

In regards to expenditures, Garside said<br />

they are projected to rise.<br />

“Eighty percent of the district’s expenditures<br />

are for personnel services,” he said.<br />

District reviews financial forecast<br />

Providing students with healthier choices<br />

at lunch and encouragement to be physically<br />

active all day long have earned<br />

Columbus City Schools national recognition<br />

from the U.S. Department of<br />

Agriculture (USDA) and $108,000 in federal<br />

funds to provide even more options in<br />

the future.<br />

All 110 schools in the district were recognized<br />

for Excellence in Nutrition and<br />

Physical Activity by the USDA’s Food and<br />

Nutrition Services. By meeting federal<br />

health and wellness criteria, 104 schools<br />

earned the HealthierUS School Challenge:<br />

Smarter Lunchroom Silver distinction; the<br />

remaining schools earned the Bronze distinction.<br />

“We have long emphasized the message<br />

that healthy bodies fuel active minds,” said<br />

Interim Superintendent Dr. John<br />

Stanford.<br />

In addition to the federal recognition,<br />

He said though that amount may seem<br />

high, they are on par or even a little below<br />

districts of similar size.<br />

“Some district’s personnel expenditures<br />

are as high as 90 percent and that is where<br />

they tend to get in trouble.”<br />

He added that the personnel amount<br />

also reflects collective bargaining agreements<br />

negotiated between the board and<br />

classified staff, administrative staff and<br />

certified staff, respectively.<br />

According to Garside, there have been<br />

some changes to the drug program which<br />

will save the district some money through<br />

the use of mandatory generics.<br />

Among the other expenditures are purchased<br />

services, which are forecasted to<br />

increase roughly 2 percent to 2.5 percent,<br />

and supplies and materials, which was<br />

forecasted to increase roughly 4.5 percent<br />

over the five-year forecast.<br />

Respectively, the forecast predicts revenue<br />

of $273 million, $276 million and<br />

$279 million and an expenditure of $256<br />

million, $270 million and $284.5 million in<br />

fiscal years 2019, 2020 and 2021.<br />

Though Garside said the forecast has<br />

predicted the rise in expenditure versus<br />

the stream of revenue in 2021 there is no<br />

cause for alarm.<br />

“As I said before, those are conservative<br />

estimates that may change when the May<br />

forecast comes out,” he said. “Overall, the<br />

district is in a great spot with our<br />

finances.”<br />

He said one indicator of the health of a<br />

district financially is in its cash balance. In<br />

the forecast, the cash balance is projected<br />

at $194 million, $198 million and $191.7<br />

million in fiscal years 2019, 2020, and<br />

2021.<br />

“We’re in a nice spot,” Garside said.<br />

“We’re not in panic mode.”<br />

CCS students getting healthy<br />

each school earning a Silver distinction<br />

receives a $1,000 award, while Bronze<br />

awardees each receive a $500 award.<br />

In all, Columbus schools will receive<br />

$108,000 to reinvest in healthy options for<br />

students and further promote health and<br />

wellness efforts.<br />

These federal distinctions are part of<br />

the USDA’s Team Nutrition initiative<br />

which works to create healthier school<br />

environments through promotion of nutrition<br />

and physical activity.<br />

Columbus City Schools has been repeatedly<br />

recognized as having one of the best<br />

breakfast programs in Ohio, and for taking<br />

the step to provide breakfast and lunch to<br />

all students at no cost. The district has also<br />

been recognized for its “Ohio Days: My<br />

State, My Plate” initiative, serving a nutritious<br />

lunch each month of Ohio-sourced<br />

foods.

woman? What are they wearing?”are questions<br />

posed by block watch co-chair David<br />

Donofrio. “Is it important to know what<br />

they’re wearing? Or should you have<br />

focused on the color of their hair first?”<br />

These and other questions will be<br />

answered by deputies as they go through<br />

different scenarios that residents are likely<br />

to encounter.<br />

The Greater Lincoln Village Block<br />

If you have yet to see “First Man” but<br />

are under the impression that it is a sweeping<br />

epic about the 1960s space race<br />

between the United States and the Soviet<br />

Union, allow me to dispel that notion: This<br />

movie is nothing like that.<br />

While that may be a deterrent for those<br />

who were hoping for a theatrical adaptation<br />

regarding this topic in the vein of a<br />

Michael Bay film, it shouldn’t make you<br />

dismiss it outright based on that alone.<br />

“First Man” is a great film — a terrific<br />

character study about an introverted man<br />

thrust into the national spotlight while<br />

struggling with repressed grief. It is quiet,<br />

contemplative, at times breathtaking and<br />

at times remarkably dull. It isn’t perfect,<br />

and I’m not certain I would watch it again,<br />

but it made me appreciate what it strived<br />

to do nonetheless.<br />

It begins in 1961 with civilian pilot Neil<br />

Armstrong (Ryan Gosling) testing the<br />

outer limits of the X-15. His experience in<br />

the soon to be grounded flights are visually<br />

inspired and absolutely terrifying to watch.<br />

A word of warning though: if you suffer<br />

from bouts of motion sickness, you may<br />

need to look away during the opening<br />

VOTE<br />

sequence, as well as a few others throughout.<br />

Just as the Ohio native is climbing the<br />

ranks in his professional life, his personal<br />

life is being met with devastation as he and<br />

his wife Janet (Claire Foy) learn of the<br />

tumor growing in their young daughter’s<br />

brain. Working as hard as he does in and<br />

for his field, Neil searches far and wide for<br />

doctors doing experimental treatments to<br />

prolong Karen’s life but little more can be<br />

done.<br />

Being a private person, though the film<br />

slyly posits his reaction as a product of his<br />

generation, Neil buries his grief and<br />

immerses himself in work. Shortly after<br />

this family tragedy, he applies for a position<br />

with NASA Astronaut Group 2 and<br />

relocates his family to Houston for a fresh<br />

start.<br />

In the following years, we see the<br />

advancement of space exploration and the<br />

public’s divided reaction to the space race.<br />

More intimately, we see the toll it takes on<br />

the astronauts, some of whom are killed<br />

trying to reach their dreams, as well as<br />

that of their families. In regards to the<br />

Armstrong’s, we see two young sons trying<br />

“First Man” is moving and visually engaging<br />

to get their father’s attention, a woman<br />

struggling with putting on a happy face for<br />

public documentation, and a man who<br />

becomes obsessed with his work at the<br />

expense of his mental and emotional wellbeing.<br />

Though the film is set more than<br />

half a century ago, it feels all too modern.<br />

A majority of this film is the years leading<br />

up to the moon landing — we see the<br />

test flights, the stimulations, the mistakes,<br />

the lives lost in pursuit of advancement. At<br />

times, it feels draggy despite the emotional<br />

punches this movie throws. But when it<br />

comes time for the landing, however, the<br />

suspense, wonder, visualization, pride and<br />

sadness make you almost forget how long it<br />

took to get there.<br />

While it is definitely not an actionpacked<br />

thriller, “First Man” is an effective<br />

and affecting study on an American icon<br />

and his private journey through grief. Had<br />

it been billed that way, I probably wouldn’t<br />

have seen people walking out of the theaters<br />

due to boredom, but ultimately I felt<br />

that was their loss. Though admittedly boring<br />

at points, this is a wonderfully moving<br />

film that is one of the better acted films<br />

this year and one of the most visually<br />

engaging. Grade: B<br />

Petal may only have<br />

three legs but she<br />

has all the spirit of<br />

four legs. Petal came<br />

to the county shelter<br />

an unclaimed stray<br />

with a broken femur<br />

fracture which left her<br />

in constant pain as<br />

she tried to use it<br />

despite its limitations.<br />

Despite efforts to<br />

save her leg, it had to<br />

be amputated. It has<br />

taken Petal a few<br />

weeks after surgery to adjust to a threelegged<br />

stride and to feel comfortable with<br />

being held, with navigating steps, and with<br />

balancing on uneven terrain. She is now<br />

accepting the challenges in front of her with a<br />

desire to conquer instead of retreat. Her new<br />

home will need a fenced yard as leash walking<br />

will require some endurance training. Her<br />

new home will also need a minimum number<br />

of steps as although she can maneuver them,<br />

they are an unnecessary challenge for her<br />

that could predispose her to unnecessary<br />

injury and discomfort. Petal would be perfectly<br />

content to be your one and only canine<br />

companion but can co exist as long as her<br />

personal space is respected and she is not<br />

expected to share her food or bones. Petal is<br />

up for adoption through the Franklin County<br />

Dog Shelter.<br />
