CW Schools’ finances
good; but levy likely
By Linda Dillman
The five-year financial forecast for
Canal Winchester Schools paints a positive
picture, along with the hope that voters
will renew an emergency levy that expires
at the end of next year.
“This levy is vital to the financial stability
of the district,” said Superintendent
Jim Sotlar during an Oct. 15 Canal
Winchester Board of Education meeting.
According to district CFO Nick Roberts,
from 2014-18, there was significant growth
in state funding projections. Currently,
state funding accounts for 43 percent of
district revenue, with more than 50 percent
coming from personal and property
“Revenue growth has been strong the
past five years, averaging 4.92 percent per
year” said Roberts. “This growth has been
fueled by significant state funding increases.
State funding is anticipated to continue
to grow through the end of the projection
assuming a continuation of the current formula.”
In 2023, state funding is projected to
account for nearly 50 percent of all revenue.
Income tax revenue climbs from a little
over 10 percent this year to 12.5 percent
five years from now.
“Income tax collections supply approximately
10.5 percent of the district’s overall
operational revenue. Income tax growth
has been strong over the last five-year period
and has exceeded state and national
trends following the 2008 great recession,”
said Roberts. “While income tax growth
was slightly less robust in fiscal year 2016,
growth rebounded in fiscal year 2017 and
fiscal year 2018 resulting in an overall
annual growth rate of over 5.7 percent
since 2014.The forecast assumes future
income tax growth to remain strong at
more than a three percent annual growth
Real estate revenue for 2018 accounted
for 31.9 percent of district revenue.
“After two straight negative reappraisal
cycles in Franklin County, real estate
property values resumed growth in the
2017 valuation update,” said Roberts.
“Real estate property values are expected
to maintain steady growth–due to both
inflationary adjustments and new construction
through the forecasted period.”
In 2019, real estate tax revenue is projected
to bring in $14.1 million. If the levy
is renewed, revenue grows to $15.1 million
New construction not only brings additional
revenue, it also translates to growth
in student numbers. Roberts said there
was an unusual surge in new student
enrollment. He said the typical trend was
in the 80 student range, but this year, the
number nearly doubled with 154 new students.

CW plans to renew contract with county sheriff
By Linda Dillman
For the city of Canal Winchester, police
protection provided by a contract with the
Fairfield County Sheriff is working well
enough to renew the agreement for another
An ordinance authorizing Mayor Mike
Ebert to enter into a contract with the sheriff’s
department started winding its way
through the approval process following
introduction of an ordinance during a
Canal Winchester City Council work session
on Oct. 15.
Finance Director Amanda Jackson said,
The Eastside Messenger will alter
its publication schedule for the upcoming
holiday season. The Messenger will
publish print editions of the newspaper
that will be delivered to your home on
three consecutive Sundays on Oct. 21,
Oct. 28, and Nov. 4. The print publication
and delivery dates for the remainder
of 2018 are: Nov. 18, Dec. 2, and
Dec. 16. Thank you for reading the
other than the cost, little has changed since
the city first entered into an agreement
with Fairfield County.
And while the contract contains a provision
for purchase of a new vehicle every
year, Jackson said it will be a little costlier,
initially, for the city since equipment used
in the current Dodge Chargers cannot be
transferred to newer utility style vehicles.
The current city contract with the county,
which expires at the end of December, is
approximately $1.1 million a year. The new
contract, if approved, is $1.165 million.
“It’s about a six percent increase,” said
Jackson. “Some of it is due to wages and
upping it to include four vehicles.”
Leaf pick-up in CW
The city of Canal Winchester will conduct
annual curbside leaf collection
through Dec. 14. To avoid water backup in
the event of rain, leaf piles must be placed
behind the curb along the street. Residents
are reminded that leaf piles may contain
leaves only, as sticks, grass trimmings and
other yard waste can cause damage to leaf
collection equipment. Regular yard waste
will continue to be picked up by Waste
Management during scheduled trash collection.City
crews follow specific routes
covering all city streets, as weather permits,
and cannot accept individual leaf
pick up requests.
The approximate replacement cost per
vehicle is $40,000–which includes equipment–and
the monthly cost of the agreement
According to the contract, the sheriff
agrees to fund 11 deputies providing 376
hours per week of police protection. Two
deputy sheriffs are on duty 24 hours a day,
seven days a week with a third deputy
sheriff working a shift mutually agreed
upon in writing by the mayor and the sheriff.
The sheriff also agrees to fund one fulltime
sergeant providing 40 hours per week
of supervision overseeing deputy sheriffs
and assign one full-time dispatcher to the

Roberts said. “We’ll have to see if it will be

strain on space, it also dictates the need for
staff, Employee salaries and benefits are
the biggest piece of the expenditure pie,
accounting for three-quarters of the district’s
cost in educating children.
In 2018, the district spent $29.9 million
for salaries and benefits. In 2023, the
amount is projected to cost the district
“We have done a nice job in controlling
benefits (cost),” said Roberts. “A lot of that
is the unknown in health insurance. We’re
funding exactly what our claims are.”
Despite enrollment growth from 2013 to
2015, the district reduced staff during the
period. Roberts said the staffing reductions
helped the district remain financially stable
during an economically challenging
period. From 2016 through 2018, some
Potential increases in the annual payment
are based upon a combination of costs
incurred by the sheriff for services, including
salaries, retirement pensions and
workers compensation for personnel
assigned to Canal Winchester; training;
equipment, gasoline and supplies; and
Additional deputies may be necessary
during the life of the contract and when
mutually agreed upon in writing, they may
be added to any shift–which was done earlier
this year. The city agrees to cover the
costs of salaries, benefits, and personnel
related taxes for additional personnel.
Tax grant applications sought
Applications due by Nov. 30
The second half of the tax has been designated
by city council to fund the annual
Bed Tax Grant Program.
Grant applications will be competitively
reviewed and awards will be made to those
projects meeting all requirements and the
intent of the program.
Grant applications are available on the
city’s website and at the Canal Winchester
Municipal Building, 36 S. High St., Canal
Winchester, OH 43110.
Completed applications must be submitted
in person or by mail to the attention of
the finance director at the above address
no later than Nov. 30.
City council will make award determinations
Award checks will be drawn in early
2019 and all awards must be used within
the 2019 calendar year.

Jackson, finance director, at 614-837-6937
staff positions were restored.
“Since emerging from the financial crisis
in stable financial condition, the district
has cautiously added staff targeted to
improve student performance,” said
Roberts. “In fiscal year 2019, the district
added six additional teaching staff as well
as eight additional para-professional positions.
The good news is that nearly all of
the increased cost of these new positions
was covered by staff turnover. Fiscal year
2020 through fiscal year 2023 assumes the
addition of three professional teaching
staff and five non-certified positions per
year. The district recently negotiated a
three-year agreement with staff covering
fiscal years 2019-21.”
The agreement calls for 2.5 percent base
wage increases each year of the agreement.
Sotlar expects to present a resolution of
necessity to the board in November to
place the levy back on the ballot in 2019.
“This levy is a renewal,” said Sotlar.
“We’re not asking for new money.”

“First Man” is moving and engaging
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
While it is definitely not an
action-packed thriller, “First Man”
is an effective and affecting study
of an American icon and his private
journey through grief.
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
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.
As I wandered around the festival grounds at the
recent Apple Butter Day in Groveport I was pleasantly
surprised by something I witnessed near Palm Pond.
Arrayed in the grassy area near the pond were a variety
of old style wooden toys as well as some “hands-on”
work stations where kids could perform old fashioned
tasks. The area was full of happy, smiling kids who
seemed thrilled to tackle the mental and physical challenges
the old style toys and work stations provided.
These toys - which included wooden stilts, wooden
hoops kids could propel along the ground with a stick,
ropes for tug-of-war, as well as other such items - appear
simple at first, but they are actually stimulating to mind
and body. They require one to reason out how to use them
and then physically try them out.
Kids had to figure out how to balance themselves in
order to walk on the stilts. I watched as kids used trial
and error to come up with the best way to wrap one’s
hands and arms on the stilt uprights in order to walk.
The smiles on their faces were broad and bright when
they accomplished taking several steps while on the
The tug-of-war ropes required both strength, balance,
and strategy. There were times when a smaller kid
defeated a larger opponent because the smaller competitor
had deciphered how proper balance and timing
worked in their favor.
Rolling the wooden hoops required speed, agility, coordination,
and a knowledge of how best to apply the stick

in pursuit of
times, it feels draggy
despite the emotional
punches this movie
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 of 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 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.

There were also a series of work

could sort and grind grain and roll

on the flow of their work and there was a joyful satisfaction

Taking a look at State Issue 1
Proposed state constitutional
amendment will appear on
Nov. 6 ballot
By Christine Bryant
A controversial ballot initiative this November
would reform Ohio’s criminal justice system, offering
more opportunities for treatment rather than prison
It’s a positive step for those who want reform, especially
in the middle of an opioid epidemic. But opponents
warn those who should be behind bars instead
would be on the streets sooner, and argue the initiative
Under the proposed constitutional amendment,
known as State Issue 1, the sentences of incarcerated
individuals - except those convicted of murder, rape or
child molestation - would be reduced by up to 25 percent
if the individual participates in rehabilitative,
work or educational programming.
The amendment also would mandate that criminal
offenses of obtaining, possessing or using any drug,
such as fentanyl, heroin, methamphetamine, cocaine,
LSD and other controlled substances, be classified as a
misdemeanor, rather than a felony.
If adopted, the amendment also:
•Prohibits jail time as a sentence for obtaining, possessing
or using controlled substances until an individual’s
third offense within 24 months;
•Allows an individual convicted of obtaining, possessing
or using a drug prior to the effective date of the
amendment to ask a court to reduce the conviction to a
•Requires any available funding, based on projected
savings, to be applied to state-administered rehabilitation
programs and crime victim funds; and
•Requires a graduated series of responses, such as
community service, drug treatment or jail time, for
minor non-criminal probation violations.
Amy Hanauer, executive director of Policy Matters
Ohio, says the organization conducted three research
projects on Issue 1 and found, if approved, the measure
will have big benefits for Ohio.
“Ohio’s prison population has tripled since 1980,
and our prisons are at 132 percent of capacity,” she
said. “We lock up a higher share than all but 13 other
states, and we have more of our people on probation
than all but two other states.”
By redirecting people when their worst offenses are
possession or probation violation, she says, benefits
include reduced prison populations, more treatment
and lower rates of overdose and addiction.
“When we lock people up just for addiction, it can
really derail their lives,” Hanauer said. “They are eight
times more likely to die of an overdose when they first
get out of prison than other people with addiction are.
They are locked out of at least one in four Ohio jobs
after serving time, which makes it harder to stay on
the straight and narrow.”
Though well intended, Issue 1 is misguided, says
Louis Tobin, executive director of the Ohio Prosecuting
“The reality is that it will make Ohio’s opiate crisis
worse,” he said. “For many addicts, courts are the only
thing that get them into treatment and promote recovery.
Issue 1 takes away the stick - incarceration - that
courts use to do this.”
Voters do not need to look any farther than West
Virginia, he says, which has more overdose deaths
“West Virginia law does what Issue 1 proposes to do
for Ohio,” Tobin said. “It makes drug possession a misdemeanor
with no jail time. Nothing connects addicts
to treatment and they are left on their own to get
sober. It doesn’t work.”
Hanauer, however, says many people want to, but
can’t get into drug treatment in Ohio.
“Addiction is an illness, created in part by bad policies,”
she said. “We need to do things differently in
Ohio, and Issue 1 does that.”
Issue 1 became an initiative after advocates began
to explore how the prison budget did not leave enough
funds for other needs, she said.
“More than 4,800 Ohioans died last year from overdoses
and it’s been climbing each year,” Hanauer said.
“Issue 1 is a promising solution to reduce incarceration,
redirect resources to treating addiction, and get
our communities healthy and safe.”
Tobin, however, says that by creating a constitutional
right for offenders to be released from prison 25
percent early, all inmates have to do is participate in
programming while in prison.
“Participation is something much different than
completion,” he said. “They are not required to complete
the programming or to demonstrate that they are
Tobin is also concerned by who the amendment does
not exclude from being able to participate.
“Issue 1 says that the only exclusions are death sentences,
life without parole, murder, rape and child
molestation,” Tobin said. “This means that human
traffickers, drug traffickers, domestic violence offenders
and child abuse offenders, among many other violent
offenders, will get out of prison early.”
As part of the initiative, funds saved from incarcerating
inmates would be redirected to rehabilitation
programs and crime victim funds. According to Policy
Matters Ohio, it costs an average of $67.84 per inmate
per day, or nearly $25,000 a year. Those figures
include fixed costs, such as facility maintenance.
However, Tobin says the promised savings are a
myth, with the independent Ohio Office of Budget and
Management stating Issue 1 instead could increase
costs to the state and local governments.
“The problem is that Issue 1 adopts a cookie-cutter
approach where everyone found with a certain amount
of drugs is treated the same,” he said.
The wording of the initiative also is problematic, he
says - not differentiating the quantities of drugs in a
person’s possession, nor distinguishing addictive versus
“As one example, possession of the date rape drug
GHB would be a misdemeanor with no jail time under
Issue 1,” Tobin said. “It is dangerous. Under Issue 1,
there will be no real consequences for having it.”
He said the law also is shortsighted.
“It is intended to deal with our very real opiate crisis,”
Tobin said. “By putting drug laws in our
Constitution, it ignores what might come next.”
In the last few years, the state has gone from experiencing
a pill problem to a heroin problem to a fentanyl
“Now we are starting to see the rise of carfentanil -
100 times stronger than fentanyl,” Tobin said. “Ohio
will not have the flexibility to deal with future crises
because our drug laws will be set in stone.”
Hanauer said, however, passage of Issue 1 would be
an impactful step toward helping families.
“Providing treatment gets people on the path to getting
their lives back together,” she said.

Building a business wardrobe
The transition from college student
or stay-at-home mom to fulltime
professional requires a
number of changes. Those
changes include updating your
wardrobe to give it a more professional
feel. Clothing that's acceptable
for a jaunt to the store or a
night out may
not be appropriate
for the office
Just what constitutes a professional
wardrobe has changed over
the years, and the guidelines for
such attire are no longer as firm
as they once were. But it still behooves
a woman to add some classic,
professional pieces to her
closet. While skirts and pantyhose
may no longer be mandatory,
dressing conservatively and
cleanly in an office environment
is always a safe bet. Many employers
have adopted dress-down
days as perks for their employees.
Although you may be invited to
dress more casually, avoid dressing
for a day at the beach or hanging
around the house. Opt for
trouser-style jeans that are free of
rips and embellishments. If athletic
shoes are allowed, make sure
they are clean and not the pair
you wear while tending to your
garden. Avoid graphic T-shirts
that feature potentially offensive
or suggestive messages. In more
conservative companies, dressing
down may be opting for khakis instead
of suits. It is important to
know the difference.

letter should be concise, conveying
an applicant's work history
and goals in a few paragraphs or
less. The following are some additional
ways men and women
can craft effective cover letters:
● Address a specific person when
● State your purpose early on.
● Explain why you are a qualified
● Exhibit some knowledge about
pany to which you're applying.
● Be cordial in your closing
An effective cover letter can go a
long way towardmaking a strong
first impression on a prospective
employer. Men and women
shouldlook at their cover letters
as their first opportunities to
connect with a company and
write their letters accordingly.

Township detective honored
By Linda Dillman
Madison Township Police Det. Keith Mallory was
honored with the Central Ohio Crimestoppers
September Officer of the Month for his work in helping
close a case involving school threats.
“Thanks to his detective work, we were able to
make an arrest and prosecution,” said Madison
Township Police Chief Gary York during an Oct. 9
presentation to the township trustees.
According to Crimestoppers, on Feb. 27, a social
media post resulted in an investigation that a student
who attends Groveport Madison Middle School North
had posted threatening pictures with guns targeting
students and teachers.
As a result, Groveport Madison School officials
closed all 10 of the district’s school buildings for the
safety of the students and community.
During the investigation, Mallory retrieved a cell
phone from a person of interest and executed a search
warrant. The cell phone was sent to the Columbus
Police Department for a forensic analysis.
Information on the phone showed a connection
between a middle school student and threats posted on
The student was arrested and interviewed and during
the interview, admitted to posting the threatening
photos as a joke.
The student, who had a prior charge and arrest of
conveying a firearm inside a school building in late
2016, was charged and arrested with inducing panic, a
second degree felony.
Other Madison Township news
•Madison Township Administrator Susan Brobst
said it was back to the drawing board for a new electric
aggregation contract after rates came in much different
“We reject these rates and then we’ll go back out
after the election,” Brobst said, adding she hopes to
have revised rates available in December.
•Brobst discussed the possibility of adding another
regular trustee meeting in June and October of next
year due to both months containing five weeks and
changes in the way the township now handles nuisance
Special meetings would still be called as necessary
and if there was no business for the additional regular
June and October meetings, they could be canceled
with proper notification.
•The Madison Township Police Department is providing
an opiate prescription “Drug Drop Box” for the
community. This drop box is located in the lobby of the
Madison Township Police Department, 4567 Madison
Lane, and will be accessible to the public during normal
office hours Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5
Madison Township Police Chief Gary York said the
officers and staff are committed to serving the community
and believe in helping to fight the opiate epidemic.
Any person can walk-in and dispose of new or old pills,
including prescription medications, or any other illegal
substances and place them into this box with no questions

Prescription Drug Take Back Day set for Canal Winchester
On Oct. 27, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the
city of Canal Winchester and the Diley
Ridge Medical Center, in cooperation with
the Fairfield County Sheriff’s Office and
the Drug Enforcement Administration, will
give the public the opportunity to prevent
pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes
of potentially dangerous expired, unused,
and unwanted prescription drugs. Bring
your pills for disposal to the Diley Ridge
Medical Center parking lot at 7911 Diley
Road. (The DEA cannot accept liquids or
needles or sharps, only pills.) The service
is free and anonymous, with no questions
asked. Canal Winchester’s Take-Back
event offers participants a drive-thru setting
to drop off any unwanted prescription
“We’re doing our part to fight the crisis
of addiction seen throughout the country.
We also want to encourage everyone to dispose
of their unused prescriptions responsibly,
not only keeping them out of the
wrong hands, but keeping them out of
water systems, too,” said Canal Winchester
Mayor Michael Ebert.
The Drug Enforcement Administration
reports that Prescription Drug Take-Back
initiatives address a vital public safety and
public health issue. Medicines that languish
in home cabinets are highly susceptible
to diversion, misuse and abuse. Rates of
prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are
alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental
poisonings and overdoses due to
these drugs. Studies show that a majority
of abused prescription drugs are obtained
from family and friends, including from the
home medicine cabinet.
DEA launched its prescription drug
take back program when both the
Environmental Protection Agency and the
Food and Drug Administration advised the
public that their usual methods for disposing
of unused medicines - flushing them
down the toilet or throwing them in the
trash - posed potential safety and health
In addition to the success of the takeback
initiative, new regulations in effect
over the last several years have made the
disposal of controlled prescription drugs
easier for patients and their caregivers as
many law enforcement agencies, pharmacies,
hospitals and clinics have begun continuous
collection of unused medications.

Days, visit www.rxdrugdropbox.org.

Buddy is a 7-year-old 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
Max is a year and a half old,
neutered and current on shots. He
is good with other cats and people,

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
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.

pets of the week
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 three-legged
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
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

A new look for the Madison Township Police Dept.
By Linda Dillman
Madison Township Police Chief Gary
York is painting a new picture of law
enforcement for township residents.
With an annual budget of more than
$3.3 million, a staff of 20 and a coverage
area of nearly 41 square miles with a growing
population of 23,509, York had his work
cut out for him when he started work on
“The immediate challenge I faced was
beginning the healing process for the officers
and staff. I wanted to reassure them
that I was here for them, and to move the
department forward,” said York.
He felt the most important step was to
gain the trust and respect of the officers
and staff, and reassure them they were
“The department had a history of disciplinary
issues that had taken its toll on the
staff, the union, the administration and the
trustees,”said York. “In order to change the
department, I needed to change its behavior.”
Since his appointment as chief, York
increased patrol coverage to a minimum
staffing level of two officers per shift and
hired four new officers with two more positions
He created two new command positions–an
administrative commander and a
ne: Oct.2 2
patrol commander - purchased outvest carriers,
security holsters and weapon lights
for officers and eliminated one full-time
civilian maintenance position, one parttime
civilian clerical position, and one parttime
law enforcement position.
York selected a second in command, is
addressing building maintenance issues and
taking a close look at cost-cutting measure
for services the police department uses,
eliminated unnecessary expenditures from
the budget and updated the department’s
policy and procedure through Lexipol.
York also helped design a new patch for
police uniforms and created a new look for
the police department building with updated
“One project I was asked to look at–
that was supported by the trustees–was to
take a look at the department's current
police patch and come up with something
that really labeled the department for the
township and the communities we serve,”
Three and a half months and multiple
drafts later, after seeking input from board
members and staff, a new police patch was
unveiled in early July. Since its inception
in 1972, the department has only had two
The original patch consisted of
Cruiser–the Groveport Madison Schools
mascot, an Indian chief for Canal
Winchester and a covered bridge. The second
patch had no attachment to the township
and resembled a Columbus Police
“Trustee (John) Pritchard really was the
driving force behind the new patch and
when I had hit a plateau for ideas for a new
design, he suggested looking at where we
started,” said York. “From that conversation
came our new patch. To me, it’s important
to remember our history, and where
we came from as an agency. Equally
important, was that our new patch was a
reflection of the community that we
York said the new patch accomplishes
all of that.
“It reflects our past, the communities of
Canal Winchester and Groveport and commemorates
the year it all began. With
newer images, brighter colors and retaining
our past, the new patch embodies all
that we are as an agency,” said York. “I’m
proud of this patch and the legacy it
reflects.” (To see the new patch, go to
