Solid as a river of rocks

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

One rock is painted to look like a taco lying on its side. Another’s

bump now serves as the nose on a blue-eyed face.

“The Scream,” Edvard Munch’s iconic painting, is represented

in miniature, as is the notorious Marvel Comics superhero, Deadpool.

Puns have their place—an ocean scene illustrates the phrase,

“Seas the Day”—as does inspiration—one colorful rock urges the

reader to “Be a Rainbow in Someone’s Life.”

Altogether, more than 600 cobblestones make up the “rock river”

that hugs a wall of classrooms in the courtyard outside the cafeteria

at London Middle School. Six hundred small, individualized works

of art come together to create one big, collective masterpiece.

The idea: To let the artists (students at the school) know they

are special and they belong.

“The rocks aren’t separated by grade; they’re all mixed in with

one another. It’s a masterpiece that represents them. They make it

their own and then they belong in here,” said Kirsten Witt, the

sixth-grade language arts and reading teacher who is coordinating

the project.

Witt saw the rock river idea online two

years ago, but put it on the back burner

until this past February when 17 students

and staff were killed in a mass shooting at

a high school in Parkland, Fla.

“I couldn’t sleep that night” Witt said.

“At 3 a.m., I saw the rock river image again

on Facebook and immediately thought, ‘We

need to do this.’ In my mind, it was a way to

unify the students.”

The first order of business was to acquire

600 rocks. Witt quickly learned that to purchase

just 400 rocks, she’d need $1,000. She

opted instead to pitch her project idea to

quarries and sandstone companies. After

many calls and few positive responses, she

finally heard back from Ron Wike with National

Lime & Stone out of Lockbourne.

“He asked about the idea and then he

asked what the budget was. I said I didn’t

have a budget. He donated the rocks,” Witt

said.

That was the start of a collaboration that

involved donations from several local individuals,

groups, and companies. Eric

Warnock transported the rocks from Lockbourne

by dumptruck. The middle school

student council donated decorative paint,

paint brushes and other supplies. They also

sorted the big rocks (for painting) from the

little rocks (for the river’s base). Dwyers

Bros. Hardware donated mesh ground covering,

Jeff Mathewson donated edging material,

and Sherwin Williams pitched in

base coat paint. Ken Davis helped with

landscaping, and Jeremy Porter created and

London Middle School sixth-graders place rocks they painted in

the “rock river” in the courtyard outside the cafeteria. Their rocks

join the more than 600 rocks placed there this past spring by last

year’s sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders. The river is meant to

symbolize unity among all students at the school.

Country music stars taking the stage in London

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

Country music stars Joe Diffie and Jimmie

Allen are set to take the stage Nov. 16

in the inaugural Country Concert Series at

the Madison County Fairgrounds in London.

Diffie, a member of the Grand Ole Opry,

is headlining the show. Since he first topped

the country charts in 1990 with “Home,” he

has amassed 12 No. 1 hits, 20 top-10s, and

four gold and platinum albums. Among his

popular tunes are “Ships That Don’t Come

In,” “Pickup Man,” “John Deere Green” and

“If the Devil Danced (In Empty Pockets).”

As a songwriter, Diffie’s success is

equally as impressive. In addition to the numerous

hits he kept for himself, his songs

have been recorded by Holly Dunn, Tim Mc-

Graw, Tracy Lawrence, Conway Twitty,

Doug Stone and, most recently, Jo Dee

Messina whose recording of “My Give a

Damn’s Busted,” became a No. 1 song.

Recent collaborations with Jason Aldean

on “1994,” a hit released earlier this year,

and hick-hop stars The Jawga Boyz on “Girl

Ridin’ Shotgun,” are opening new doors for

Diffie at this point in his career. He is

working on an album of new material, due

Concert showcases pipe organ’s dynamic range

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

“What makes the pipe organ special among instruments is its

capacity to go from the softest, most prayerful of sounds to the

mightiest roar and all the gradations in between,” says Michael

Schreffler, organist and music director at First United Methodist

Church (UMC) of London.

On Nov. 4, Schreffler will showcase the range of the church’s

Johnson & Son/Muller pipe organ in a solo concert set for 4 p.m. Admission

is free. A $10 donation is suggested.

This marks Schreffler’s first solo concert

in four years. He often collaborates with

other musicians and takes part in the annual

Sounds of the Season, a Madison

County Arts Council production hosted at

the church. He has served as the church’s

organist and music director for 11 years.

“We’re uniquely blessed in London, Ohio,

to have such a fine instrument. This is the

most versatile pipe organ for its size and resources

that I’ve ever set hands on,” said

Schreffler, who started playing piano at 9

years old and shortly thereafter shifted to

organ.

The concert will feature selections by

German composers Max Reger and Johann

Sebastian Bach, colorful American works,

and examples of the French 20th century

tradition.

The audience will experience not only the

pipe organ’s tonal range, but also its mocking

bird side.

“There are stops that mimic sounds in an

orchestra—flutes, trumpets, oboes—and there

are an infinite number of possible combinations

in ensemble,” Schreffler said.

The concert is slated to last approximately

an hour and 15 minutes. For more

information, call First United Methodist

Church of London at (740) 852-0462.

The middle school version of “The Addams

Family” musical is hot off the press,

and London Middle School is taking it out

for a spin.

“There’s a new company getting into the

middle school musical thing, and this is

brand new from them,” said Director Tim

Tanner. “We have a lot of students this year

who make a good fit for the characters.”

Performances of “The Addams Family: Young @ Part” are set for

7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 26 and Saturday, Oct. 27 in the Joyce Hildebrand

Auditorium at London High School, 336 Elm St. Admission is $5.

“We usually do our shows right before Thanksgiving, but we

moved the dates this year due to scheduling conflicts with other activities

at the school,” Tanner said. “It’s just happenstance we’re

Rachel Armas has once again assembled

a hauntingly talented group of students

to present the school’s annual Halloween

Cabaret Night. The event takes place on

Oct. 25 at West Jefferson High School, 1

Roughrider Dr., West Jefferson.

A chili dinner (chili, cornbread,

dessert and drinks) begins at 6 p.m. and

is $5. The free cabaret performance begins

at 6:30 p.m. A costume contest is

planned for all children ages through

high school. To enter chili in the cook-off,

contact Armas at rarmas@westjeff.org.

The event is a fundraiser for the high

school and middle school choir programs.

The cabaret performers hail from

sixth through 12th grade. Students were

selected through an audition process.

Singing and dancing are on the agenda.

Among the performers are Alexa Bogenrife,

Santino Carnevale, Michael

Catapano, Nathaniel Dersom, Nicole

Evans, Celina Jeffers, Erica Lewis, Nick

McGlothlin, Hannah Messer, Ivie

Nicholas, Brianna Russell, Loraine

Diffie has won a Grammy, several CMA

awards, and was named Humanitarian of

Opening act Jimmie Allen is starting to

make a name for himself on the country

The family at the center of the plot is

atypical, to put it mildly. The Addams clan

is fond of all things dark, gruesome and

strange which makes for an interesting

evening when the daughter invites her new

boyfriend and his parents over for dinner.

“The story plays on how oddly the Addams

family looks at life but how they still

have a tremendous love for one another as a family,” Tanner said.

Josh Lickliter and Evie Gillilan play the parents, Gomez and

Morticia Addams. Gabi Wolverton holds the role of Wednesday, the

lovestruck daughter. Lily Beyer appears as Uncle Fester, while Anthony

Holfinger plays Wednesday’s older brother, Pugsley.

A total of 32 students make up the cast, while six students make

up the stage crew.

from the dance-worthy “American Heartbreaker” and “Make Me

The Diffie/Allen concert is the first in what presenter Reagans

Productions hopes will be a regular event, bringing country music

acts to the Madison County Fairgrounds twice a year.

Reagans Productions is a collaboration between friends and

Madison County residents Matt Mason and Cory Coburn. Their

aim is to bring family-friendly entertainment to the county while

showcasing the facilities at the fairgrounds. Additionally, several

local non-profits are lending a hand with everything from parking

to clean-up as a way to raise funds for their organizations.

Remembering WJ’s John Kile

On Oct. 12, the Jefferson Local Schools

football program honored the memory of

John Kile by naming him the week’s honorary

captain.

Kile was a 1951 graduate of West Jefferson

High School where he was a member of

the football, basketball and track teams. He

later went on to become the “Voice of the

Roughriders,” announcing the football games

for 45 years. He called his last game in 2002.

Kile was inducted into the West Jefferson

Athletic Hall of Fame in 1995. He was

named “Fan of the Year” by the football program

in 1964 and again in 2002.

Kile served as emcee for many sports

banquets at West Jefferson High School for

almost half a century. He also served in

service and leadership roles in the district,

including in the West Jefferson Alumni Association

and the Athletics Boosters.

A staple of the West Jefferson and Madison

County community, Kile served in civic

leadership roles with Kiwanis, Rotary Club,

the Chamber of Commerce and others. He

also was a successful automotive salesman.

He and his wife, Mary Lee, dedicated their

lives to service to the community.

Kile passed away on Sept. 29 after a

short battle with cancer.

known as “The Voice of the Roughriders.”

opinions

ere will only be one ‘Voice of the Roughriders’

John Kile was not only my friend but also my mentor.

After 45 years behind the microphone as the “Voice

of the Roughriders,” he retired in 2002. At that time, he

requested that I be the next announcer of the West Jefferson

High School football games. Many people in town

said that I replaced him and others have called me the

“Voice of the Roughriders,” but first, you don’t replace a

legend, and second, there will only be one “Voice of the

Roughriders.” He will forever be known as the one and

only.

As I prepared for my first football game in 2002, I

was very nervous. I found some

football tapes and listened again

as John made the announcements

for each play. I wanted to

continue his success, as well as add my own touch to the

game. My dad told me to speak slowly. The first few

games, I spoke almost too slowly but learned as time

went on.

John told me several times that there are some

things you don’t announce. One is the score. He told me

that’s what the scoreboard is for. Second is to never announce

who fumbled the ball or threw the interception,

because the player knew, his mother knew and his girlfriend

knew. If the crowd missed it, they didn’t need to

know.

As I stood beside John in the press box for about 15

years as his spotter, I was amazed that while he was

talking he was listening to me for the runner, the tackler

and yards gained. He was listening to Mark

Pelphrey for the down and distance for a first down. He

also was writing down the stats as he kept the official

stats for many years. It still amazes me that he could

do all of this in a matter of seconds.

John also announced many parades in town and was

the emcee for the queen pageants for the Ox Roast.

Eventually, I took over for him with these tasks, as well.

John always had a knack for adding a little extra to his

announcing when he noticed someone he knew.

Association’s annual Senior Citizens Christmas

Party and, just like Santa, he knew everyone and included

a personalized joke as he read each name. He

also helped to auction off extra roasts at the Ox Roast.

As I said, John also was a friend, a longtime friend.

I remember many times going to the after-game parties

with the gang—the Kiles, the Lovelesses, the Baldwins

and the Pfeils. While enjoying food and drinks, they

would replay the game then watch the scores of the

other games played that night. On away games, they

would always stop at a restaurant. Not only would they

follow football but also basketball, college games and air

shows. They would also take

weekend trips together.

I always looked forward to

Wednesday morning sessions at

McDonald’s when John would come in for biscuits and

gravy and coffee. He would always say he needed to get

to work, to make the popcorn, then stay another hour

before leaving. John also enjoyed the Saturday morning

pancake breakfasts at the Methodist Church. It seemed

like we always sat at the same table when we went to

alumni banquets, Christmas parties and football reunions.

At the dealerships, John was always willing to stop

and talk while work was being done on any of my vehicles.

More times than not, Mary Lee would call and remind

him to stop at the store on his way home. John

was very proud of Mary Lee, his children and his grandchildren.

John was an amazing man that I am going to miss

but I feel blessed that I was able to know him. I am

going to miss our talks and his stories, the history I

learned from him and his jokes. I don’t know that I ever

heard the same one twice.

God bless you and rest in peace, John Kile.

Talent scout will offer

advice at free lecture

Renowned New York talent scout Peter

Sklar knows a thing or two about helping

aspiring child stars achieve success. His

list of proteges includes television and film

veterans Sarah Jessica Parker, Reese

Witherspoon, Mischa Barton and a wide

array of current Broadway, television and

film actors, singers and dancers.

Reality shows like “American Idol” and

“America’s Got Talent” have

springboarded some of the

most talented kids in the nation

to stardom, but with so

much available talent, what

really sets one kid apart from

another?

According to Sklar any career—in

or out of the arts—is

about two things: self-image

and health. He argues that

these qualities outweigh

looks, training, connections

and even talent, and apply

universally.

“The people who sit behind

the table are trying to decide

two things: do they like you

and do they believe you,”

Sklar tells young audiences.

“If you don’t feel good about

yourself mentally or physically,

you won’t open up and

show us who you really are. When that

happens, no matter how smart you are or

what you’ve achieved or what you look

like, we’ve already lost interest... It’s about

who you are as a human being.”

In “Broadway & Beyond,” a lecture for

students and their parents set for 7 p.m.

Nov. 1 at London High School, Sklar will

explain why his views are in sync with the

needs of top New York and Hollywood

agents and casting directors, as well as college

admission boards and job interviewers

in nearly all fields.

Alluding to a dramatic rise in self-destructive

behavior, such as smoking,

drinking, drugs and eating disorders

among so-called “happy” teens, Sklar marvels

at how often these activities secretly

coexist with good grades, good behavior

and many other outward signs of stability.

“The kids I interview are

the smartest and most talented—the

highest achievers

in the nation,” Sklar said.

“And they’re too often the

most unhappy, unhealthy

and least employable.”

Sklar boasts an Ivy

League pedigree (masters degree

in education from Harvard

University), formal

training in concert piano

(Juilliard School of Music),

and five decades of professional

experience. He’s had

his work presented on the

Bravo Channel, Good Morning

America and every major

national television network.

He is developing an original

musical based on his experiences,

entitled “The Kid

Who Played the Palace.”

“Broadway & Beyond” is open to children,

teens, young adults and parents. The

lecture is free but reservations are required.

No one under 7 years old will be

admitted, with or without a parent. Students

younger than 18 must attend with

their mother or father.

Buckeye Ford is bringing Ford Motor Company’s Drive 4 UR School program to the London

community in an effort to raise up to $6,000 for London High School. For every person who

takes the wheel and test-drives a new Ford vehicle at Buckeye Ford on October 27, 2018,

Ford Motor Company will donate $20 to London High School Girls Softball & Basketball

programs. The funds will go towards help with funding their programs.

“We know funding for school programs is hard to come by, and we want to do our part to

help make sure these programs remain available,” said Howard Maynard, Fixed Operations

Manager at Buckeye Ford. “We’re excited to raise money for the London High School Girls

Softball & Basketball programs.”

The event, which will be held from 10 AM to 2 PM October 27, 2018, will feature many

Assist in the Escape, we will be able to put you behind the wheel of your favorite Ford

vehicle,” said Howard Maynard. Dealership staff on site will be able to assist with all Ford

vehicles and provide additional information about each vehicle available for test-drive.

To date, Ford dealerships across the United States have helped raised more than $35 million

for local schools and non-profits thanks to their hard work and partnership with the Drive 4

UR School and Drive 4 UR Community programs.

To participate in this exciting event and get behind the wheel of your favorite Ford vehicle

please visit Buckeye Ford between 10 AM and 2 PM on October 27, 2018.

Unique opportunities for singers

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

Calling all singers!

London resident Teri Gray is amassing

two huge choirs, one to sing the National

Anthem at a Harlem Globetrotters show in

Columbus and another to sing Handel’s

“Messiah” at a church in Hilliard. Participation

is open to youths and adults. Both

performances are scheduled for December.

Gray has taught vocal music in schools

and directed church choirs for 40 years. Her

career has included stints at Madison-

Plains Local Schools and London City

Schools, as well as churches in Mount Sterling

and London. Currently, she is a vocal

coach at Westland High School and the traditional

worship leader at Scioto Ridge

United Methodist Church in Hilliard.

Gray recently got a call from the Harlem

Globetrotters requesting that the Scioto

Ridge UMC choir sing the National Anthem

at their 1 p.m. show on Dec. 30 at the Schottenstein

Center. With permission from the

church, Gray opened participation to anyone

who is interested, especially anyone she

has taught or directed during her career.

“I’ve always wanted to get everyone together

in one big choir but never thought I’d

have a big enough venue. Now, I do!” she said.

Gray’s goal is to assemble a 100-voice

choir. The group will sing the anthem on the

basketball court prior to the start of the

show. The cost to participate is $21, which

includes a seat to watch the show. All choir

members will be seated together. If Gray

gets at least 75 people to participate, the

choir will be photographed with the Globetrotters

at half-time.

Gray has chosen a simple arrangement

of the anthem and set two rehearsals–Oct.

25 and Dec. 20. Both will take place from

8:30 to 9 p.m. at Scioto Ridge UMC, 4343

Dublin Road, Hilliard. She asks that anyone

who wants to perform take part in at least

one of the rehearsals.

As if the Globetrotters gig wasn’t enough,

Gray also is coordinating Scioto Ridge UMC’s

annual performance of the Christmas portion

of Handel’s “Messiah.” As with the Globetrotters

opportunity, she welcomes participation

from anyone who wants to sing.

The performance is set for 7 p.m. Dec. 15.

Rehearsals are taking place at the church.

Participants are required to purchase their

own copies of the “Messiah” (Schirmer edition).

The rehearsal schedule is as follows:

* Nov. 1, Nov. 8, Nov. 15 and Nov. 29–

8:15-9 p.m.;

* Nov. 20–7-8:30 p.m.;

* Dec. 6–8:15-9:30 p.m.;

* Dec. 13–7-9 p.m. (dress rehearsal).

For more information about the Globetrotters

performance or the “Messiah” performance,

send an email to Teri Gray at

muzakteach@yahoo.com.

Full moon bike ride

The Friends of Madison County Parks &

Trails will hold a bike ride at 7:30 p.m. Oct.

24 during the full moon. The ride starts at

Phat Daddy’s Pizza, 15 E. First St., London.

Ride options include a 25-mile round trip to

Address changes for West Jeff Community Center

By Sandi Latimer

Staff Writer

Visitors to the West Jefferson Community

Center might think they’re not in

Kansas, er, West Jefferson any more.

The center, which has carried a Center

Street address, now bears the address of 230

Cemetery Road.

The center’s front door faces Cemetery

Road, rather than Center Street, said Mayor

Ray Martin after the Oct. 15 village council

meeting. By removing the gate between the

nearby cemetery and the center, the village

has made it possible for visitors to access

the center from the cemetery road.

This will be handy as area resident and

West Jefferson parks and recreation director

Marci Darlington presents a fundraising

event at the center Oct. 24-27 to benefit 15

non-profit agencies. The general public is invited

to walk the Yellow Brick Road from 5

to 9 p.m. Oct. 24-26 and noon to 8 p.m. Oct.

27. On Oct. 27, activities include a flag-raising

at 11:30 a.m., Trunk or Treat from 5 to

obituaries

7 p.m., and a showing of “The Wizard of Oz”

at 8 p.m. Food will be available for a donation

of nonperishable goods for the Good

Samaritan Food Pantry.

In business, council approved a proposed

change to an ordinance concerning loitering.

“We’re removing one sentence in the ordinance

adopted in 1973,” council President

Steve Johnston said.

The removal of the sentence that “a person

is guilty of loitering if the person loiters

or stays in a public place for the purpose of

begging” came at the suggestion of Law Director

Michael Murray and brings the local

law in line with Supreme Court decisions.

Council’s next meeting will be held Nov.

5. A public hearing will be held at the start

of the meeting concerning zoning requests

for the Sky Ranch and Project Maple properties.
