and All Stars faced off Oct. 30 at Madison-Plains High School in an entertaining

game full of basketball razzle-dazzle and antics. The All

Stars–made up of Madison-Plains teachers and staffers and London

Mayor Patrick Closser–gave it their all, but the Wizards–stacked with

former college players and some former Harlem Globetrotter showmen–took

the win. (AT RIGHT) LaMarvon Jackson, a member of the

Madison-Plains investigates multiple threats

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

Over the course of 12 days, four threatening messages were

found written on school property at Madison-Plains Local Schools.

District leaders are working to resolve the incidences and put a stop

to the threats.

“They are both scary and frustrating, and no one wants them to

stop more than I do, which is why we are doing everything we can

to investigate, figure out who is doing this, see that strong consequences

are given, and do our best to try to get this to stop,” said

Chad Eisler, Madison-Plains superintendent,

in a statement to parents, students

and staff following the third incident.

The first message, a bomb threat written

on the arm of a chair at the high school, was

found on the afternoon of Oct. 15. Grades 7-

12 were evacuated to the football field while

the Madison County Sheriff’s Office

searched the building.

The second and third threats came on

Oct. 24. In the morning, the message “At

1:59 school dies” was found written on a

boys’ restroom wall at the high school. Because

the message was not specifically a

bomb threat, students and staff were instructed

to shelter in place. Movement in

the building resumed after law enforcement

and staff found nothing suspicious in the

building.

In the afternoon of Oct. 24, a bomb threat

was found written on a girls’ restroom wall

at the junior high. Students were evacuated

to the football field. All evening activities

were cancelled or postponed.

The fourth threat was found on the afternoon

of Oct. 26 on a restroom wall in the

grades K-6 building. The incident was resolved

quickly; a student admitted he wrote

the message and that it was a hoax.

As of Oct. 29, two students have received

disciplinary consequences, and the district

continues to investigate the unresolved

threats.

The district’s course of action includes cooperating

with law enforcement officials on

criminal investigation and safety matters.

The district has increased monitoring of all

buildings throughout the school day. Additionally,

school leaders held an all-students meeting at the junior

high and high school to explain the seriousness of the events and

the disciplinary consequences students could face for making such

threats.

“The safety and well-being of our students and staff is our top

priority. We continue to investigate the remaining two messages

that were found in the restrooms to determine who wrote them and

to assign appropriate disciplinary consequences to the students who

have done this,” Eisler said. “While we certainly hope this stops, we

will continue to take all messages of this type seriously and respond

appropriately.”

The district faced similar issues last spring when several threatening

messages were found in school restrooms.






Madonna of the Trail

The Plain City Chapter Daughters (DAR) of the American Revolution

visited the Madonna of the Trail in Springfield on Oct.

13. Located along the National Road (U.S. Route 40), the monument

is dedicated to the spirit of pioneer women in the United

States. The National Society of DAR commissioned 12 such

statues, all dedicated in 1928 and 1929. Ohio’s Madonna is

identical to all of the others. The inscriptions on the pedestals

are different, though, to reflect local history. Pictured are: (from

left) Mary Ann Eckhart, Janet Kaufman, Wanda DuPuis, Valerie

Merideth, Roxana Mink, Cindy Schumaker and Joy Ballard. The

group also lunched at the Historic Red Brick Tavern in

Lafayette, the second oldest stagecoach stop in the United

States, and visited the Madison County Historical Society’s Pioneer

Days Festival in London.

County proposes shared services for Mt. Sterling

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

The village of Mount Sterling is in fiscal

emergency, and county leaders are looking

at ways to lend a hand by providing services

at reduced costs.

Rob Slane, Madison County administrator,

is proposing that the county take over

billing for Mount Sterling’s water and sewer

department. The county runs the same software

for billing as does the village. Mount

Sterling could save $25,000 to $30,000 a

year in licensing fees and staffing costs if

the county handled the work, Slane said.

He emphasized that the county would

not be involved in decision-making for the

department or the village. The agreement

would be strictly for billing services. The village

would maintain a local drop-off site for

payments, and all water and sewer concerns

and questions would be directed to the village.

Slane also is proposing that the county’s

water and sewer district purchase a

biosolids tanker so that the county can do

its own hauling of sludge, rather than contract

out the work. The county could then

offer that service to Mount Sterling, which

also contracts out the work at this time. The

county could do the hauling for $6,000 less

per year than Mount Sterling is paying now

for the service.

“Anything we can do to help out Mount

Sterling,” Slane said at the Oct. 30 county

commissioners meeting.

To go in-house with the work, the county

also would need a tractor to pull the tanker

and a staffer to do the driving. Slane is talking

to the county engineer’s office about supplying

the tractor and driver. If the plan

moves forward, the tanker purchase would

be part of the water and sewer district’s

budget for 2019. The district is looking at

buying a used tanker for $20,000, Slane

said.

County investments

On a quarterly basis, Donna Landis,

county treasurer, updates the commissioners

on the county’s investments. All totaled,

the county has $22.2 million invested in

money market accounts and bonds. All but

$2 million is invested in a money market account

collecting 1.7 percent interest. Landis

said that account is “doing very well,” bringing

in $86,000 in interest just since July.

Breast Cancer Awareness

The commissioners signed a proclamation

recognizing October as Breast Cancer

Awareness Month.

Chris Cook, county health commissioner,

reported that 49 new cases of breast cancer

are reported in Madison County each year,

a number in line with the state average. He

also reported that 13 deaths are attributed

to breast cancer in the county each year, as

compared to 10 per year in other Ohio communities

of similar size and demographics.

Cook said 75 percent of local women who

are age 50 or older get mammograms. He’d

like to see that statistic go to 100 percent

and start with women who are 45 years old.

“Early detection is key,” he said.

Joel Rice, a nurse practitioner in Madison

Health’s oncology department, said the

county has made great strides in promoting

breast cancer awareness in the county. The

number of women getting screenings for

breast cancer has gone up significantly, he

said.

The hospital is finishing up an expansion

project that includes a new space for the oncology

department. Located on the expansion’s

second floor, the department will be

staffed by an oncologist and a nurse practitioner

and include eight treatment chairs

“THE BEST SCRUB TUBS IN TOWN”

and two beds. The full-time clinic is affiliated

with the James Cancer Hospital.

Additionally, Madison Health offers a

cancer support group on the fourth Thursday

of the month and a breast cancer support

group on the third Thursday of the

month. Both take place from 5 to 6 p.m. in

the Park Avenue Medical Center, next to

the hospital.

Students visit Raider Rack, leave wearing smiles

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

Clothing. It’s one of life’s basic necessities,

yet not all children have access to new

socks, shoes, pants, shirts and coats.

A year ago, London City Schools created

a resource to fill that void. Stocked with new

clothes donated by the community, the

Raider Rack is located in former classroom

space at London Elementary.

Last school year, 137 elementary, middle

and high school students shopped at the

Raider Rack. Already this school year, 79

students have visited the store. They browse

through the racks and shelves and try on

items in the store’s dressing room.

only pick a few things,” said Kirsten

Witt, a teacher at the middle school who

refers students to the Raider Rack. “Students

will find me in the hallway after the

shopping spree and show me one of the outfits

they are now wearing. It strengthens

their self worth, their outlook while walking

the hallways, even their posture changes.”

Janice Riggle, a teacher at the elementary

school, has witnessed the positive impact,

too. With new clothing, students are

more comfortable around their peers and

they don’t have to worry about everyday

things like having warm clothes to go outside

for recess.

you can tell it’s making a difference,” Riggle

said.

Melissa Canney, London City Schools’

student support specialist, spearheaded the

project as one more way to set students up

for success. Situations at home can make it

difficult for families to provide clean or new

clothes for their children. Teachers and

staffers see some students in shoes that are

falling apart or clothes that have seen better

days.

“The Raider Rack is meant to help families

stretch their dollar and maybe give

them a little relief,” Canney said.

It also provides economic relief to teachers

and other school staffers who reach into

their own pockets to buy clothing and supplies

for students in need.

“I’m always asked, ‘What can I do to

help?’ Here’s something that’s tangible,”

Canney said, explaining that donations of

new clothing, as well as money to buy clothing,

are always welcome. She said the community

has been very generous in

supporting the endeavor.

“When I asked the community to support

this, I knew they would,” Canney said.

Sneakers sizes Y-13 to Y-6 and Red

Raider school spirit wear in all sizes are especially

needed right now.

Volunteers also are needed to organize

donations, switch out stock to match the

seasons, and help students shop.

Donations can be dropped off or shipped

to: London City Schools, 380 Elm St., 2nd

Floor, London OH 43140. Checks payable to

Shirts, skirts, pants, coats and shoes line

shelves and fill racks at the Raider Rack.

Students can look through the items, all of

which are donated by the community, and

try them on in the dressing room at the

back of the store. Melissa Canney, the

store’s organizer, welcomes donations of

new clothing and shoes for children in

kindergarten through 12th grade. Sneakers

and London City School spirit wear are

among the most needed items at this time.

Additionally, volunteers are needed to organize

Shekinah students make impact across county

Shekinah Christian School dismissed classes midday

on Oct. 5 so that students could participate in Community

Impact Day. The school’s tagline is “Inspire — Ignite

— Impact,” and Community Impact Day provides students

in grades K-12 with service opportunities to make

a positive impact on others.

This is the third consecutive year that students have

taken part in the event. This year, some students were

assigned to Edgewater Place Assisted Living in Plain

City to sing, work on an art project, and assist with outdoor

clean-up. Other elementary students bagged meals

at Sufficient Grace in West Jefferson.

Junior high students were divided between the

Country Closet in Plain City and HELP House in London

to sort donations. High schoolers worked with Plain

City Parks and Recreation to weed flowerbeds, plant

mums, and clean the youth building at Pastime Park.

They also helped to organize and paint at Daily Needs

Assistance in Plain City and visited with and sang to

residents at Bluebird Retirement Community in London.

“I’m amazed at the excitement that serving on a Friday

afternoon can generate among students, staff and

the organizations we serve alongside,” said Brice Kauffman,

school administrator. “We have already been

asked if we would consider a second Impact Day in the

spring. It is something I’d like to talk more about with

our school board and faculty.

“The feedback we get from staff, students and our

community surpasses my expectations every year,” he

continued. “The Shekinah Christian School board and

I believe that it is important for us to be connected to

our community. We do care about what happens to

those in Plain City and London and beyond.”

The Community Impact Day experience embodies

Shekinah’s mission and growing desire to interact with

and make a positive impact on the community.

According to Audrey Maust, an elementary teacher

at Shekinah, “It was really good. Students gravitated

towards the senior citizens. The kids went prepared [to

Edgewater Place Assisted Living] with questions and

did a great job cleaning.”

She said that when one senior citizen was asked how

they were doing, the individual responded, “It was going

bad until you guys came.”

Shekinah Christian School is located in Plain City.

Shekinah Christian School high-schoolers tend to flowerbeds and plant mums at Plain City’s Pastime Park.

Local officials speak out against State Issue I

We are asking the citizens of

Madison County to vote “no” on State

Issue I on Nov. 6.

Issue I mandates that criminal offenses of obtaining,

possessing or using any drugs such as fentanyl, heroin,

methamphetamines, cocaine, LSD and other controlled

substances cannot be classified as felonies but only as a

misdemeanors. It prohibits jail time as a sentence for

using the above named drugs until an individual’s third

offense within 24 months. It also requires sentence reduction

of incarcerated individuals by up to 25 percent

for certain convictions, such as human trafficking, aggravated

robbery, aggravated burglary, aggravated

arson, kidnapping, felonious assault, and other violent

offenses.

We, as professionals, deal with these issues every

day. Proponents of State Issue I claim that the amendment

promotes neighborhood safety and drug treatment.

We believe that these assertions are based on a

fundamentally flawed understanding of how the justice

system treats drug offenders and deals with the trafficking

of illegal drugs. Substance abuse has a broader

impact on our community than an individual’s decision

to use drugs. Ninety percent of property and theft

crimes in Madison County are committed by drug addicts.

We believe that the amendment is flawed in many

ways. The major flaws are as follows:

1. Undermines Treatment

Proponents’ claim: The amendment will cut off the

“addiction-to-prison” and “probation-to-prison”

pipelines, allowing drug-addicted offenders to receive

treatment in their community.

Fact: Most drug-addicted offenders already receive

treatment in the community. Those who are sent to

prison are typically individuals who have multiple convictions

or multiple probation violations and for whom

community treatment has not worked. For this population,

a trip to prison can be beneficial. It can remove addicts

from the stressors and triggers that lead to relapse

behavior, shock them into complying with treatment,

and potentially save lives. The

amendment removes this essential

tool from the tool belt of those in the

justice system who are trying to help people recover. Research

and experience clearly demonstrate that without

court intervention, including possible incarceration, addicts

are less likely to seek treatment.

2. Hinders Prosecution of Drug Traffickers

Proponents’ claim: The reclassification of drug possession

felonies down to misdemeanors does not apply

to drug trafficking offenses.

Fact: The amendment will make it more difficult to

prosecute drug traffickers. The proposal may limit the

ability to prosecute individuals for possession with intent

to distribute and prevent felony charges for traffickers

who deliberately deal in small amounts so that

they can assert simple possession as a defense. The

amendment removes human judgment from decisions

about who should receive treatment and who should go

to prison. It replaces that judgment with a one-size-fitsall

approach to an incredibly complex problem. It will

result in misdemeanor convictions for many drug traffickers.

Convicted drug traffickers will be eligible for a

25 percent sentence reduction.

3. Reduces Sentences for Violent Offenders

Proponents’ claim: The amendment increases public

safety by rewarding personal rehabilitation while in

prison. It is the intent of the amendment to “ensure that

state prison spending is focused on violent and serious

offenses.”

Fact: The amendment will result in reduced sentences

for violent and non-violent offenders alike. Individuals

convicted of human trafficking, aggravated

robbery, aggravated burglary, aggravated arson, kidnapping,

felonious assault, and other violent offenses

will be eligible to have their sentences reduced by as

much as 25 percent. This puts the public’s safety at risk,

undermines public confidence in the justice system, and

is a disservice to the victims of violent crimes.

4. Overburdens Local Governments

Proponents’ claim: The amendment will yield at least

$100 million in annual budget savings that will be reinvested in

treatment.

Fact: The proposal is another shift of financial responsibility

from the state to local government. It is not clear that the savings

will be anything other than one-time savings. In year two and thereafter,

once the target population of non-violent drug possession offenders

is out of prison, there are no savings to the state. Local

governments, however, will remain responsible for the costs of treatment,

probation and jail. California, which adopted a similar proposal

in 2014, has realized only a fraction of the savings they

projected there.

5. Shortsighted

Proponents’ claim: The amendment increases healing.

Fact: The amendment sends the wrong message to young adults

about the seriousness of drug abuse. While the amendment is intended

to address the current opiate scourge, voters should not lose

sight of the fact that it makes possession of drugs like heroin, meth,

LSD, cocaine, fentanyl and carfentanil misdemeanors. It places

these drugs on par with marijuana. The message to our next generation

is that use of these drugs does not carry serious personal consequences.

The amendment is a green light to drug abuse that will

inevitably destroy more lives.

The legislature of the State of Ohio has been elected by the citizens

of Ohio to write and implement law for the benefit of our state.

The organizations that are bankrolling this issue include: Open Society

Policy Center, Washington D.C.; Open Philanthropy Project

Action Fund, San Francisco, Calif.; Chan Zuckerberg Advocacy,

Palo Alto, Calif.; Tides Advocacy, San Francisco, Calif.; and Center

for Community Change Action Fund, Washington D.C. They should

not be allowed to dictate changes to the law implemented by the

Ohio legislature.

Changes to the law will result in lighter punishment for possession

or use of any amount of deadly drugs than the punishment for

offenses like disorderly conduct and reckless operation. Changes to

the law will not require treatment for addiction. Changes to our law

will send a message to drug traffickers that doing business in Ohio

is low risk.

Let those who have been elected to represent the citizens of Ohio

make the laws that protect the citizens of Ohio. We are asking you

to vote “no” on State Issue I.

Plain City church plans open house

Turkey Bingo at Legion

The American Legion Auxiliary Unit 201

will hold Turkey Bingo on Nov. 17 at the Legion

Hall, 9701 W. Broad St., West Jefferson.

Doors open at 6 p.m. Bingo starts at 7.

No one younger than 8 years old permitted.

A defining moment 15 years in the making

has finally arrived for Journey Community

Church. On Nov. 18, the public is

invited to a grand opening celebration at the

new facility, located at 11100 Lafayette-

Plain City Road in Plain City.

A worship gathering is set for 11 a.m. A

community open house is set for 1 to 3 p.m.

Community leaders will be present for a ribbon

cutting ceremony at 2 p.m. The Rev.

Linda Middelberg, district superintendent

of the West Ohio Annual Conference of the

United Methodist Church, will be present to

offer a prayer of consecration.

The congregation, formerly called Plain

City United Methodist Church, has been

serving the community for over 200 years.

Since selling their facility at 202 N. Chillicothe

St. in fall of 2017, church members

have been gathering for worship at

Jonathan Alder Junior High. They began

serving under the new name, Journey Community

Church, in March 2018. The recent

Editor’s Note: The Madison Messenger invites

without motivation for personal

gain. While working in harmony with the

other commissioners there needs to be

someone willing to represent the desires of

the citizenry. We need to take a hard look

at clarity in the budget, the opioid problem

and expansion of services. We must focus on

sound land use in future growth and strategic

economic development.

voter’s guide

Journey Community Church, formerly known as Plain City United Methodist Church,

will hold a grand opening on Nov. 18 for its new facility at 11100 Lafayette-Plain City

Road in Plain City.

Dr. Tony Xenikis (Republican)

3395 Spring Valley

Road, London

Occupation: Doctor of

veterinary medicine;

owner of The Westside

Animal Clinic Inc.

Previous service in

public office: Currently,

vice president of the

Madison County Agricultural

Society and vice

Xenikis

president of the Madison County Cattlemen

Association.

Education and/or military experience:

Bachelor of science in animal science from

The Ohio State University; doctor of veterinary

medicine from The Ohio State University

Community activities/honors: I have

been on the fair board for the past eight

years and was involved with the fairground

revitalization project since the beginning. I

worked with our commissioners, our public

and our local businesses to make our fair

grounds one of the best. I am a member of

Madison County Soil & Water, Ohio Veterinary

named Madison County Cooperator of the

Goals if elected: I believe that “Our

Youth is Our Future” and promote education

and hard work. I have volunteered

countless hours of service at our fairgrounds

to make the Madison County 4H and FFA

the best it can be. I want to take this countywide.

Through our guidance and education,

we can help our youth become productive

citizens. I also believe early education about

drug avoidance and prevention is the key to

decreasing our drug epidemic.

Ministry is one of many steps the church

has taken to welcome new families.

“Journey Community Church is not a

building; it is a community of imperfect people

who are discovering God’s grace together,”

said Pastor Blaine Keene. “That’s

been true while we’ve gathered in five previous

buildings, including a junior high

school. People might come to check out our

new building, but they will stay because of

God’s presence and the people.”

Nancy Dever (center), with tales of their experiences in the White House. The reenactors

meeting, held Oct. 18 at the Brennan Loft in London. Historical Society president

Vince Shuler, treasurer Anne Carter, and Dever conducted the business meeting.

Becoming a Big Brother or Big Sister

school mentor is one of the most enjoyable

things you’ll ever do. It will also be one of

the most fulfilling things you can do. You

will have the opportunity to help shape a

child’s future by empowering and encouraging

them to achieve, beyond their expectations,

to realize their potential. The best

part is that it is actually a lot of fun.

Big Brothers Big Sisters is in need of

adults who have one hour per week during

the school year to have a unique volunteer

experience in a school-based mentoring program

at London Elementary. Mentors are

an additional friend and a support to the

children, someone to listen, to encourage

good behavior and school attendance, and to

reinforce all of the things the child is doing

well. The thrust of the program is friendship,

social emotional development, guidance

and encouragement to help each child

have greater self-worth

Students involved in the school-based

mentoring program develop a better attitude

toward education and show higher

achievement. The program has proven to reduce

potential for negative outcomes.

The qualification to become a mentor is

a desire to make a positive difference in a

child’s life. Big Brothers Big Sisters provides

on-site supervision each week.

To learn more about becoming a mentor

and friend for a young student, call Linda

Shaffer at 888-877-2547.

Tyrone Artis officiating, followed by internment

at Cherry Grove Cemetery in Xenia

then the repass back at the church. One of

Sharon’s last wishes was a purple-themed

80th birthday party. She will be laid to rest

in all purple. Those attending the celebration

of life service have been asked to wear

purple in Sharon’s honor. The family is

being served by Eberle-Fisher Funeral

Home and Crematory, London.

Battling in the mud

Photo courtesy of Chris Whitacre

The London Red Raiders traveled to Whitehall on Oct. 26, where they lost their undefeated

season and the chance for a Mid State League Ohio Division championship.

The Rams bested the Raiders 34-15 in a muddy battle to end the season. London took

their only lead at 4:42 of the first quarter. Whitehall scored the next 22 points. K.J.

Price led London’s offense with two touchdowns and a two-point extra point. Leading

the Raider defense were Richie Geib with 11 tackles, Nate Wells with eight, and Tyler

Tobin and Bricker Thiel with seven each. Freshman Thad Huff had 3.5 tackles for

losses. London finished the regular season 9-1. (Above) Thad Huff, freshman defensive

tackle, squares up on a Whitehall ball carrier. –Submitted by Jim Smith
