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

Prairie Township residents were

reminded of the importance of protecting

their streams. At a recent board meeting,

representatives from Franklin Soil and

Water Conservation District presented

helpful tips for the community to be more

environmentally friendly.

“There are many simple steps you can

take to protect our streams, including having

rain gardens, ensuring fertilizer

doesn’t get on the streets or sidewalks and

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

entire class.”

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

created,” Fleshman

said.

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

like this.

“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

plaque.”

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

well.

“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.

bright spot

October 21, 2018 - WESTSIDE MESSENGER - PAGE 3

By Dedra Cordle

Staff Writer

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

feel.

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

said.

In the two decades since, Boston said

she has grown to love the trees that keep

her neighborhood cool but less flower

friendly and adapted well to her surroundings.

“I plant many artificial flowers,” she

admitted.

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

street.”

With plans to cut down that bothersome

tree, Boston and Karn set out to find someone

who could possibly turn its remnants

into something sunny and beautiful.

Westside resident Joy Boston recently commissioned wood

carving artist Ted Scherer to design sunflowers from a chopped

tree in her front yard. She said she chose sunflowers for this

permanent display of public art because they make everyone

happy.

Scherer, a noted wood carver whose creations are all over the

state.

“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.”

through panoramic windows.

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

route.

As my attendant on the train mentioned

at various stops along the way, many residents

of small communities rely on the

proximity of the train for transportation if

traveling by car isn’t an option. Not even

Greyhound comes their way.

For just over 2,200 miles in just under

two days, I traveled across the country with

strangers, yet left the experience feeling

fulfilled I had accomplished something,

even though all I did was step foot onto a

train.

If you’re thinking

of taking the Empire

Builder or any longdistance

train, here

are a few things I

learned along the

way.

•Invest in a room.

Riding the Empire

Builder is more than

a mode of transportation,

especially

if you’re traveling

from Chicago to one

of its endpoints,

either Seattle or

Portland. The duration

of the trip is two

days, but that spans

over two nights. If

you like a little privacy

and need to lie

flat to sleep, you’ll

want to invest in a

sleeper room.

•Know your limits.

When I traveled

on Amtrak, I stayed

in what’s called a

roomette. It’s the

size of a closet with

two chairs. Those

two chairs then fold

www.columbusmessenger.com

Life Moments

Christine Bryant

down into a bed. If you have someone with

you, there’s an additional bed that drops

down from the ceiling. This type of room is

more expensive than buying a coach ticket,

but less expensive than getting a bedroom,

which includes an in-room sink, toilet and

shower. Because of this, bedrooms are larger

in size.

Different trains that journey to various

parts of the country have versions of this.

For instance, some roomettes have a toilet

as well. On the Empire Builder, there’s a

larger family room available that makes

traveling with young ones or several adults

easier.

This is where knowing your limits comes

in handy. If you get a roomette, you can

still take a shower and go to the bathroom;

you just have to share accommodations

with others in your car. If you don’t particularly

enjoy public restrooms, like me, this

can be a challenge. The train bathrooms

are similar to an airline bathroom.

•Don’t bring food, except maybe snacks.

If you stay in a sleeper room, you’re provided

with bottled water. You can also purchase

drinks and even beer in a small store

located in one of the cars. I found that your

attendant (every car has a personal attendant)

will get you what you need. Those

who work on the train are incredibly

accommodating.

There’s absolutely no need to bring food

unless you want to bring your own snacks.

The food served during meal time was

incredible, and if you purchase a sleeper

cabin, it’s all included in your ticket price.

So indulge in the salmon or item you may

only order during a special occasion. It’s

worth it.

•Don’t be afraid to have a conversation.

Everyone is in the same boat as you. Most

of the people on my train were couples or

singles traveling alone, yet during meal

time, you get seated with at least one to

two people you don’t know. I was surprised

how many people weren’t from a community

along the route. Many had traveled from

the South to experience the Empire

Builder.

•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.”

•Keep your eyes

peeled. I saw lots of

deer and birds, but

while in Glacier

National Park, I also

caught a quick glimpse

of a bear. You never

know what you may see. Which brings me

to …

•Don’t overpack. You don’t need to bring

tons of books or magazines, and you don’t

need to download movies on your phone or

iPad. During daylight hours, you’ll be hard

pressed to take your eyes off the window.

By the time night rolls around, especially if

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.

In Education

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

said.

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 said.

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

capped district.

“We’ve been a capped district for quite a

while,” he said. “We’re going on six years

now.”

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 said.

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

the casino.

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

amended agreement.

In regards to expenditures, Garside said

they are projected to rise.

“Eighty percent of the district’s expenditures

are for personnel services,” he said.

www.columbusmessenger.com

District reviews financial forecast

Providing students with healthier choices

at lunch and encouragement to be physically

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

the future.

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

Stanford.

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

finances.”

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

2021.

“We’re in a nice spot,” Garside said.

“We’re not in panic mode.”

CCS students getting healthy

each school earning a Silver distinction

receives a $1,000 award, while Bronze

awardees each receive a $500 award.

In all, Columbus schools will receive

$108,000 to reinvest in healthy options for

students and further promote health and

wellness efforts.

These federal distinctions are part of

the USDA’s Team Nutrition initiative

which works to create healthier school

environments through promotion of nutrition

and physical activity.

Columbus City Schools has been repeatedly

recognized as having one of the best

breakfast programs in Ohio, and for taking

the step to provide breakfast and lunch to

all students at no cost. The district has also

been recognized for its “Ohio Days: My

State, My Plate” initiative, serving a nutritious

lunch each month of Ohio-sourced

foods.

Effective Witness Program

The third annual effective Witness

Program put on by the Greater Lincoln

Village Block Watch is being offered at no

charge Wednesday, Oct. 24, at 7 p.m. at the

Prairie Township Fire Department, 123

Inah Ave.

This program is put on by the Franklin

County Sheriff’s Office. It teaches participants

what to look for in suspicious people

as a way to help law enforcement in their

investigations.

“Is the suspicious person a man or

woman? What are they wearing?”are questions

posed by block watch co-chair David

Donofrio. “Is it important to know what

they’re wearing? Or should you have

focused on the color of their hair first?”

These and other questions will be

answered by deputies as they go through

different scenarios that residents are likely

to encounter.

The Greater Lincoln Village Block

Watch covers an area from the Conrail

tracks on the north to Sullivant Avenue on

the south; from I-270 on the east to

Hillliard-Rome Road on the west. Both

individuals and businesses are welcome to

be a part of the block watch.

Further information about the block

watch is available through

PAGE 12 - WESTSIDE MESSENGER - October 21, 2018

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

VOTE

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

done.

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

start.

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

Pet Corner

Pets of the week

Buddy is a 7-yearold

long haired

orange hunk of handsome

man.

Unfortunately for

Buddy, his owner

died and he’s not

sure what’s going on

and he is very sad.

All he wants is a

home and a lap to

snuggle up on. Since he is a Christmas Eve

baby, will you give him the gift of your home,

your lap and your love? Buddy is up for adoption

through Friends for Life Animal Haven.

FYI: www.fflah.org

Max is a year and a

half old, neutered

and current on shots.

He is good with other

cats and people, but

he is not sure about

dogs. Max is a total

love bug and looking

for his forever family.

Adopt him from

Friends for Life

Animal Haven.

Chicha is a happy,

playful pooch. She is

so silly and playful all

the time. She is looking

for a home where

she can be spoiled

with all sorts of toys

and always have a

buddy to play with.

She seems to do well

with other dogs and

may enjoy having furry friends. She would do

In Entertainment

“First Man” is moving and visually engaging

The Reel Deal

Dedra Cordle

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

sweet Chicha today at the Franklin County

Dog Shelter.

FYI: 614-525-3647 or www.franklincountydogs.com

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

Dog Shelter.
