ODOT tries to

Last winter was a rough ride for drivers

of Interstate 71 through Grove City. With

the approaching winter weather, city leaders

want to make sure preparations are

made for a smoother drive.

Author and illustrator Henry Cole jokes around with Buckeye Woods Elementary student Parker Maxstead after his final presentation

of the day on Nov. 7. In addition to leaving behind a portrait of one of his book characters, Cole spoke to the students

about the importance of perseverance.

Hoping to inspire young minds

By Dedra Cordle

Staff Writer

Some of the major milestones in the

life of author and illustrator Henry Cole

can be traced back to school assemblies.

As an elementary student in

Purcellville, Virginia, Cole received his

first brush with fame when the self-proclaimed

‘World’s Greatest Whistler’ made

an appearance at his school.

“I’m pretty sure he was just a local guy

who could whistle but he blew my mind,”

he said.

Cole said he can still remember his

appearance and tunes with an acute clarity.

“He looked like Fred (Mertz) on ‘I Love

Lucy’ and whistled one of the best renditions

of Yellow Bird for us. It made quite

the impression on my young mind.”

The second milestone came when Cole

was in the eighth grade and received a

visit from noted Australian author and

illustrator Robin Hill.

“He specialized in birds and he was the

most exotic person I had ever met,” Cole

said.

It also didn’t hurt that he spoke in his

thickly accented voice about a topic that

was a favorite of Cole’s.

“I had always had a passion for the

outdoors,” he said. “And I especially loved

drawing the wildlife.”

The third major assembly milestone

came when he was teaching science and

math at an elementary school when they

received a visit from yet another author.

It was during this experience that he

worked up the courage to speak to one of

their guests.

“I had just finished a book about bats

after one of our units and asked if I could

have the contact information for their editor,

or any editor,” he said. “I took a

chance and much to my surprise and

delight, they were interested in my work.”

Though he didn’t leave his job after the

publication of his work, it did create a fire

within to reach others through educational

entertainment in the form of literature.

“When I first started all of this,” he

said, referring to his second career as an

author and illustrator, “I wanted to focus

on reaching children and young adults.

Their imaginations are the most active

during this time and it’s exciting to know

that you could be making an impact on

their lives.”

Since retiring more than two decades

ago, Cole has written and illustrated more

than 170 books, including “A Nest for

Celeste,” “Eddie the Bully,” “Try a Little

Kindness,” and the award-winning

“Unspoken,” which takes the reader

through the Underground Railroad without

the use of text.

During that time, he also began travelling

to schools throughout the country for

his own assemblies where he talks about

his work, the perseverance it took to get to

where he is today, and his hidden hope of

living up to the expectation of the guest

speaker spot.

“It can be intimidating,” he said. “I

always expected something engaging and

funny and I know that they are too. So

what I try to do is be as engaging and

funny and interesting as possible while

also giving positive messages without

being too preachy about it.”

For three hours, which were broken up

into three one-hour assemblies at Buckeye

Woods, Cole shared childhood illustrations

about growing up on a rural farm, joked

about being the younger sibling to a genius

older brother with a knack for inventions,

shared the tragic backstory behind his

book, “The Somewhat True Adventures of

Sammy Shine,” and got a bit serious when

telling the students to never give up on

their dreams as he relayed the story of editors

heavily critiquing his work.

“It’s like when the teacher hands you

back the assignment that you were so sure

was great and it’s full of marks and notes,”

he said to an audience that was nodding

and groaning in commiseration. “While it

looks bad, and sometimes feels bad, you

have to know their feedback is only going

to make your work better in the future.”

School librarian Debi Damato said she

appreciated his message about perseverance

and called his presence at the school a

“joy.” She also said she loved learning

about the process of creating and illustrating

a children’s book.

“Sometimes we don’t even think about

the amount of time and work that goes into

it,” she said, referring to the picture he

shared of the stacks of heavily edited

drafts, as well as his admission that it took

more than 100 illustrations to get one character

down.

“What I liked about his presentation is

that he tells of the hard work, but also the

love he has for what he does,” she said. “I

hope it’s inspiring to all of our students,

especially those who have an interest in

writing and illustration.”

Several students also said they loved

Cole’s presentation, which when told overjoyed

the author immensely.

“I’m glad,” Cole said. “I don’t think my

presentation is as awesome as the whistler

of my youth but I’m happy they came away

smiling. I hope they continue finding their

passions and working toward doing what

makes them happy.”

she didn’t get to the 50 stars to put on the field of blue.”

For a while it appeared the project might never get finished.

Price’s craft of crocheting didn’t rub off on any of her

“I tried it, but couldn’t catch on,” said daughter

Ruby Skipper in whose possession the endeared

The affordable housing crisis is at the heart of the

American economy and impossible to ignore.

Affordable housing has become an increasingly serious

concern as the housing market tightens with population

growth and rents rise to

take advantage of the increasing

demand. American cities

have become unaffordable to

those whose incomes are not

keeping pace with current

housing costs. Whether you’re a

renter or a homeowner, affordable

housing is a fundamental

human need for any adult or

family to survive and thrive.

Franklin County’s senior

population has needs for both

affordable and accessible housing

with services. Americans 65

to 74 are now the country’s

fastest-growing age group.

Connor picked up the crochet hook and white yarn and

Bullock was worried about Price’s eyesight, although the

want to remain in place as they age. Our seniors are

facing costly housing challenges that include: home

repairs/modifications, neighborhood re-gentrification,

impaired mobility, relocation of community retail

stores and personal safety concerns. Senior subsidized

housing waiting lists are often long and homelessness

is an increasing problem among older adults.

The Franklin County Office on Aging, in conjunction

with the Franklin County Board of

Commissioners, recognizes the importance of residential

stability and service enriched housing for seniors.

We invite you to join us for a Strategic Conversation to

assist us with developing strategies to address the

Senior Housing Crisis on Nov. 30 from 9-10:30 a.m. at

Franklin County Board of Commissioners: Kevin Boyce • Marilyn Brown • John O’Grady

The Franklin County Board of Commissioners and The Franklin County Office on Aging join with the Messenger Newspaper in providing this update on aging issues in Franklin County.

PREPARE FOR WINTER WEATHER — GET YOUR FLU VACCINE NOW

Despite the prediction of an average to below average winter, The Franklin

County Office on Aging issues its annual winter announcement to seniors urging

them to take preventive measures and plan early for winter weather. Learn

about the emergency plans that have been established in your area by your

state and local government and ensure your home and car are prepared for the

winter weather.

FEMA recommends you prepare an emergency supply kit, develop a family

communications plan with up to date contacts and stay informed about the risks

and weather emergencies in your community.

An emergency supply kit should include a three-day supply of food and water, a

battery-powered or hand-crank radio, extra flashlights and batteries, prescription

medicines and copies of prescriptions and adequate clothing and blankets. To

guarantee an uninterrupted supply of prescription medicines, contact your

pharmacy today and find out if they have a free home-delivery or mail order

service. If this option is available, consider subscribing or enrolling now to

ensure a continuous supply in your home.

Getting the flu vaccine soon is also another important way for you to prepare for

the winter season. People over the age of 50 are one of several groups recommended

for a seasonal flu shot. Caregivers of seniors also fall under these

general flu shot recommendations due to the possibility of spreading the virus to

the individuals they care for.

People 65 years and older have two flu shots available to choose from - a

regular dose flu vaccine and a newer flu vaccine designed for people 65 and

older with a higher dose. The high dose vaccine is associated with a stronger

immune response to vaccination. Preliminary studies suggest this may translate

into greater protection against flu disease. The CDC and its Advisory Committee

on Immunization Practices have not expressed a preference for either vaccine.

For more information on the flu vaccine, call 1-888-202-1319.

Franklin County Public Health offers these tips to further

protect you from the flu:

Wash your hands frequently.

Since your hands are the most common way to get germs into your body, you

should scrub vigorously with soap and water for 10-15 seconds to keep them as

germ-free as possible. Wash after using the bathroom, before handling food,

before eating, and any other time you think you might have picked up germs.

Avoid touching your nose, eyes and mouth.

You can't keep all the germs off your hands all the time. So, keep your hands

away from germs' most common entryways into the body.

Cover your nose and mouth with your sleeve or tissue when coughing or

sneezing.

Stop the spread your germs to others by coughing or sneezing into your sleeve

instead of your hand or into the air.

Practice other good health habits.

Get plenty of sleep, drink plenty of fluids, eat nutritious foods, manage your

stress, and be physically active.

ed council members on the highway road project.

“We don’t want a repeat of last winter,” said

Opsitnik.

The project is part of the Interstate 71 South Side

Mega Fix, a $113 million reconstruction project of the

highway between Stringtown Road and State Route

315.

Councilman Jeff Davis said last winter the construction

caused problems with pot holes. Drivers frequently

ended up with flat tires and damage to their

vehicles.

“What changes have been made so this does not

happen again,” asked Davis.

Opsitnik said now there is new pavement on the

highway. He said ODOT plans to fix a few pockets of

road before winter but is optimistic this season will be

a smoother drive.

Councilman Ted Berry was not so sure the mega fix

would not again cause issues. He said the highway

now has large concrete barriers on both sides.

“Where is the snow going,” asked Berry. “Plows

push the snow to the side, but the side is a concrete

barrier.”

The ODOT representative said plow drivers can lift

the snow over the barriers to clear the highway.

The 71 South Side Mega Fix began in the summer

of 2017 and should be complete by the fall of 2020. The

project includes complete pavement replacement and

www.columbusmessenger.com

will increase from three lanes to four in each direction.

The project also involves building a new ramp from 71

to Stringtown Road and relocating the ramp from 270

east to 71 south.

Councilman Steve Robinette expressed concern

about the closure of the Stringtown Road ramp for

local businesses, especially the hotels.

“The hotels are concerned about a loss of business,”

said Robinette.

Opsitnik said the Stringtown Road ramp will be

closed for 30 days at the beginning of 2020 for westbound

traffic. Drivers will have to take a detour to

State Route 62 or State Route 665.

The Mega Fix will also include the construction of

two noise barriers, floodwall work near Greenlawn

Avenue and upgrades to safety features including

guardrail, drainage, lighting and signage. The goal of

the project is to reduce congestion and enhance capacity.

“That stretch of highway sees 100,000 cars each

day,” said Opsitnik. “When finished, that road should

last 50 years plus.”

The Grove City Division of Police is working with

ODOT to enforce the construction zone speed limit and

inform the community about traffic pattern changes.

Side Mega Fix, visit www.transportation.ohio.gov.

AARP seeks volunteers for tax aide program

The AARP Foundation Tax-Aide program, which

provides free tax preparation at the Grove City Church

of the Nazarene and more than 250 other locations

across Ohio, is looking for volunteer tax preparers for

next year.

Last tax season, demand for tax help was so great,

Tax-Aide had to turn some seniors away. Demand is

expected to be even greater next year due to the new

tax laws. The law’s changes add a new wrinkle to the

complex process of filling out tax forms and many citizens

are concerned about doing it properly.

Across Ohio each year more than 1,500 volunteers

prepare tax returns at hundreds of senior centers,

libraries and churches from early February through

mid-April. This year, volunteers working at the Grove

City Church of the Nazarene prepared 558 federal and

state tax returns, saving local residents an estimated

$110,000 in tax preparation fees.

Anyone who does his/her own taxes on a commercially

available program, such as TurboTax, is an ideal

candidate for the volunteer opportunity. Volunteers

receive IRS-approved training, use IRS-provided tax

software and are mentored throughout the tax season.

Volunteers are asked to work at least one day a week

during the 10 to 11 week tax season.

For more information about volunteering, contact

Tax-Aide volunteer specialist William Evans at 614-

885-0938 or wlevans88@gmail.com.

According to volunteer director Don

Swogger, the food pantry is looking to relocate

to a larger facility.

“We could serve 400 to 500 families a

The food pantry, located at 2710

Columbus St., leases building space from

the Grove City United Methodist Church.

The space it currently has is about 1,500

square feet. Swogger said the pantry needs

to double or even triple its square footage

to keep up with demand.

treated us like gold,” said Swogger. “We

location in mind yet, Swogger said he is

working with the city of Grove City to find

space.

Grove City Mayor Richard “Ike” Stage

said the city is acting as a facilitator for the

food pantry. Stage said the city would be

willing to share resources or help financially.

“We’re a friendly ear,” said Stage.

The mayor said it is not the same people

each month to utilize the food pantry. He

said people fall on hard times or lose a job

and need a helping hand.

“We understand the need,” said Stage.

Swogger said he would like to see the

pantry move into a facility with more storage

space, a walk-in freezer and a walk-in

cooler. Ideally, this new location would be

close to a public transportation line and

would be open by the end of 2019.

Grove City Area Chamber of Commerce

To create a positive environment for the development and success of business

Buckeye Ranch keeps on giving year round

As you approach the Buckeye Ranch

property in Grove City, the scenery is idyllic.

Although it’s nested between suburbs,

the sweeping land here is more natural,

well-kept and beautiful.

The inside of their adminstration building

matches the calming beauty of the outside,

with their lobby overflowing with

numerous awards and well deserved accolades.

The true beauty here is what the Buckeye

Ranch does for the community.

I met with Kenny Jackson, Development

Assistant and Tim Woodard, the Managing

Director of Development. Both men are

pleasant and soft-spoken and greeted us

warmly.

Woodard began the interview by explaining

what exactly the Buckeye Ranch does.

“The Buckeye Ranch serves children and

families that are dealing with behavioral

health, mental health, and emotional health

issues. Our mission is to restore hope and

healing to children and families,” Woodard

said with a smile. “We’re providing assistance

to 2,350 kids across the state, every

day.”

That much assistance doesn’t come

overnight.

Woodard said Buckeye Ranch has

achieved these high numbers through years

of assistance from the Grove City Community.

“Of course, we’ve always been very, very

grateful to the Grove City community,” he

said. “Because we started here in 1961, this

is our 57th year in business and Grove City

has always been very, very supportive of us.

We started here in Grove City with one cottage

for about 10 boys. We have expanded

our services over the years as the needs

have grown. Now we are in seven different

service locations across the state. In Grove

City, we do residential treatment. We also

have foster care. We do case management

for Franklin County Children’s Services. Really

- a very wide continuum of care.”

Like others, I had no idea the Buckeye

Ranch had been around for such a long time

— or that they were able to help more than

2,000 children every day.

I asked Jackson if they had any special

programs coming up and he was happy to

elaborate.

“Every year, the Buckeye Ranch holds

our holiday program, ‘Adopt a Family Program,’”

said Jackson. “Through the program

we connect families in service - children receiving

services from the Buckeye Ranch to

donors in the community and 2016 was one

of our largest years ever. We provided service

to 1,542 people through the Adopt a

Family Program! That was 160 families

which resulted in almost a 50 percent increase

compared to 2015. We had almost

over $70,000 in gifts donated, the gifts were

flowing out of rooms. There was just joy

everywhere!”

Jackson explained that you don’t have to

give large donations to help.

The suggested donation is actually only

$50 — and for that you can sponsor an entire

family!

“We are actively looking for

donors interested in the Adopt a

Family Program. As a donor,

you fill out your contact information,

as well as your giving

ability. We suggest a $50 donation

per family member just so

that everything they are in need

of whether it be clothing, books,

puzzles, games, etcetera, is covered,”

said Jackson. “We use

that number to connect you

with a family that will match

your giving level so that you

each donor feels that they’re

making an impact, but also not

outside of their budget.”

The Adopt a Family program

helped 1,542 people last

year.

The Buckeye Ranch helps families.

Grove City Rotary works for the community

Larry Titus, former president of the

Grove City Rotary, is constantly working behind

the scenes to make our community a

better place.

But, because of his humble attitude

many may not know it.

“Rotary’s whole concept is basically ‘Service

Above Self,’” said Titus. “It’s the whole

concept of doing things without bringing attention

to yourself. But it’s been a challenge

for me. You want to be humble — but not so

humble so that you’re anonymous. We don’t

want to bang our chest but at the same time

we want to let folks know we’re here, to

leave a mark.”

And The Rotary certainly does leave a

mark. Titus explained that more is expected

of from the average Rotary member than

many other service organizations.

“The Rotary expects them to volunteer,”

said Titus. “We put their butts to work and

we don’t have the 80/20 plan that most organizations

have. It’s basically more 90/10

and the 10 percent. usually doesn’t last real

long because giving back is a job that keeps

you moving. The rotary club of Grove City

started 21 years ago and this year, and during

that time we will have put $476,000 into

the community.”

He continued on to explain some of The

Rotary’s current projects, some of which

even benefit folks outside of the Grove City

community.

“Through multiple projects, we will be

giving approximately $19,000 to the community

this year. One of the projects we’re

working on is supplying clean water to less

fortunate areas,” said Titus. “We’re doing

work with water provisions in Guatemala,

and sending water purification systems

down to Puerto Rico. It’s got almost a spiritual

aspect to it, you just feel really good

about everything you do for the community

here and even abroad.”

The Refuge helps to change lives

Bekah Linton is Executive Director of

The Refuge, a spiritual residential recovery

program aimed at helping people kick addiction.

Until recently, The Refuge was a men’sonly

ministry — but now they have separate

section for women and hope to change even

more lives affected by addiction. Linton sat

down with us to explain the new changes.

“Ohio Women’s Refuge was a ministry

that has been in Grove City for the last five

years or more,” said Linton. “They were

looking at changes, the best way to be able

to serve women. So they contacted The

Refuge board and asked if there was any interest

in coming under one umbrella — to become

one unified refuge. When they came to

us both boards agreed unanimously that it

would be a good move — for economies of

scale and how we could learn and grow with

each other. So now we have both a men’s

and women’s ministry!”

Linton continued on, explaining the details

of the program and reminding us that

everything is completely free for those in recovery.

“Primarily the changes have been to the

structure of the program — so the heart is

still the same,” said Linton. “We want to see

them come to know God and not be just be

clean from drugs, but to be free. We have

four phases, and it’s a long term, 12 month

residential recovery program — but it’s totally

free. If a women wants to know more

“My ask for people is for them

to join the cause. Everyone

needs more funding, but what our

communities need right now is for

everyone to jump in and do

something about addiction –

whether it’s in their local church,

or by volunteering or whatever.”

- Bekah Linton

about the refuge they’re welcome to come to

our orientation which is Mondays at 9 a.m.

They can be interviewed, fill out an application

and possibly even come into the ministry

that day.”

At the close of the interview, Linton said

that every battle against addiction starts at

home, and the best way to fight this problem

is by facing it head on, without fear.

“My ask for people is for them to join the

cause,” said Linton. “Everyone needs more

funding, but what our communities need

right now is for everyone to jump in and do

something about addiction — whether it’s in

their local church, or by volunteering or

whatever. We want our communities to not

run from addiction, but to face it head on.

There is a solution and we can beat that.”

Heinzerling here to serve the community

I recently had the pleasure of speaking

with Brian Asbury, Director of Development

and Public Relations for Heinzerling Community.

As an organization, Heinzerling is growing.

They have recently opened several new

locations in order to provide more living

spaces for children and adults with severe

or profound developmental disabilities.

“Our folks who live at Heinzerling, not

only have they grown older and larger, but

the equipment is a lot bigger than it used to

be as far as the wheelchairs and the therapy

equipment…so the organization took a look

at how they were serving the individuals

here and they wanted to create a setup

where they could provide residents with additional

living spaces, including a private or

semi-private bedroom. So that’s where we’re

at now, we’re almost completed with two

new group homes which will be for eight individuals

each,” Asbury said.

He explained a bit about the background

of the organization and how it had come to

grow so large.

“Heinzerling Community started in 1959

in Central Ohio and it was founded by Otto

and Mildred Heinzerling. They are the

grandparents of our current Executive Director

Robert Heinzerling. In 1959, in Central

Ohio, there were no services for children

ages six and under with a severe disability,

and there were no places where parents

could receive support and resources for their

children,” Asbury said. “So the organization

really started out as a grassroots volunteer

organization at that time.”

Asbury explained Heinzerling’s connection

to Grove City. Many employees are

from the area and some of Heinzerling’s the

residents have taken part in Buddy Ball — a

sports league dedicated to those with disabilities.

“A lot of our 500 employees live in or near

Grove City,” said Asbury. “We’ve also recently

partnered with Buddy Ball…we love

it, it’s amazing for our residents to have a

place where they can go enjoy sports.

They’re playing in a league and Buddy Ball

has a special night just for Heinzerling residents.

Working at the Heinzerling Community

is great because you get to see

first-hand your work benefiting the life of

another person who really needs support.”

M.A.S.H Pantry helping those

who have served our country

The M.A.S.H. Pantry, or “Military and

Service Hero’s Pantry” is quickly becoming

a well-known Grove City non-profit, which

helps provide necessities for veterans who

have fallen on rough times.

The Victorious Living Christian Church

has been kind enough to donate space for

them to operate and out of that single room

the M.A.S.H. Pantry has been serving up

miracles.

I was lucky enough to sit down in that

same room, now stuffed to the brim with

food, toiletries and clothes, to talk with

some of the folks who run the M.AS.H.

Pantry - Amber Hudson, Founder and Director,

Elaine Fowler, Vice President, and

Ralph Smith, Treasurer - and listen to their

story of how the pantry came to be.

Hudson said the Pantry began under another

name and was dedicated to a cousin

who was killed in a car crash. That community

pantry was struggling to gain success

and the official non-profit status.

“I didn’t have the money to file for our

tax exempt status, so I pawned my jeep and

jewelry to make it happen — borrowed

money from friends,” she said. “Around the

same time I ended up getting a job at the

Columbus VA. While I was there, we finally

became a non-profit — but I saw the organization

was going nowhere as the community

pantry. With my new job, however, I was

able to sit down, have coffee with the veterans,

have doughnuts, asked them ‘What

needs do you have that are not being filled?’

I realized that helping these veterans was

an important cause…that’s where M.A.S.H.

pantry started and it snowballed from

there. Sometimes it’s like the cause finds

you, not the other way around.”

Hudson related how they impact the veterans’

lives through the overwhelming support

of the community.

“We had a soft opening in 2014 — we

could have been more organized back then

— and fed 150 homeless veterans over

Christmas,” Hudson said with a smile. “We

did some logistics and had another opening

on May 30 of 2015. We’ve been growing

strong since then. We survive on community

support. We’re independent, we don’t get

government funding. We’re basically at the

mercy of the community support with which

we’ve been very blessed.”

M.A.S.H. has grown enough to do several

monthly outreach programs — not just in

Grove City, but also the surrounding areas,

providing fresh produce, meals for entire

living centers, clothes and toiletries.

Smith said, it’s more than just about food

— they help people get their lives back on

track.

“One amputee was able to get a motorized

wheelchair — another, a job,” said

Smith. “A lot of the vets that come in are

single guys. Every once in a while, you’ll get

one who just had a terrible week and needs

to vent. We’ve had them sit down and break

down in tears. When people think of pantry,

they think of food. We also have need of

clothes and toiletries.”

They take turns telling stories of different

people they’ve helped — some not even

veterans. They detail the numerous businesses

and volunteers from Grove City that

have assisted with donations, food drives,

time and energy.

“We may have started this pantry but it’s

bigger than us. I mean it’s Ralph’s, it’s

Penny’s, Elaine’s - it’s everyone’s who walks

in the door and wants to be a volunteer, it’s

their pantry, it’s their home, so, it’s bigger

than us,” said Hudson. “Everything has

been a group effort and we’re all a family.”

Soon, Hudson checks her watch. She has

deliveries to make. We end the interview

and I watch as she leaves in a large cargo

truck filled with food and supplies.

Village Council approves

right-of-way vacation request

By Dedra Cordle

Staff Writer

A request to vacate several right-ofways

in the village of Urbancrest was

granted at the Nov. 13 council meeting.

A unanimous decision was rendered in

favor of the vacation, said councilwoman

Deborah Larkins-Jackson, due to a positive

recommendation made previously by the

village’s planning commission.

“Their determination was the request to

vacate these right-of-ways would not harm

the village,” she said.

She added that based on the research

the council has conducted since the request

was made by resident Richard Cooley in

March, the council agreed as well.

“The council has not done anything with

those right-of-ways in 50 years,” she said.

“It’s time to move on.”

In the past several months, the request

by Cooley to vacate the right-of-ways at

Gilbert Avenue, Elm Street, Popular

Avenue and John Street has become a contentious

issue for some neighboring residents

and property owners.

Developer Jeff Mahan had spoken out

against the vacation of the right-of-ways as

he believed it would hinder access to his

property. He was in attendance at the Nov.

13 meeting to speak out against the vacation.

Other residents had spoken in favor of

the vacation as they believed it would help

restrict industrial traffic along residential

roads. They too spoke at the meeting to

speak in favor of the vacation.

For his part, Cooley said he had no

intention to sell or develop his property at

this time. Instead, he said he made the

request because he wanted to make his

property “whole again.”

With the approval, council granted the

vacation of Gilbert Avenue, Elm Street and

Popular Avenue. They did not, however,

grant the request to vacate John Street.

Planning commission chairman Randall

Bogue said they recommended to leave that

street as is due to its position running

north and south.

Cooley said he was OK with the decision.

Council also briefly discussed whether

they would assess the cost of utility discovery

and engineering and attorney fees to

Cooley, but did not render a decision.

According to fiscal officer Kathy Thimmes,

the village has spent roughly $12,000

regarding utility research and asset discovery

of the right-of-ways.

It’s a zoo in here!

On Nov. 2, eight animal ambassadors from the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium

escaped from their regular lodgings in Powell to have a fun and educational visit

with students at Bolton Crossing Elementary. For nearly an hour, the students

encountered exotic animals such as the Geoffroy’s Cat, legless lizards, and bush

babies, while some even got up close and personal, under the director supervision

of animal program specialists, of course. Here, students Razen Ikhlayel and Justyn

Cortez show signs of repulsion as the Madagascar hissing cockroaches started

hissing and travelling up their arms.

Kramer, a 29-year-old blue and gold

macaw, basks in his magnificence upon

completing a food retrieving “challenge.”

Animal program specialist Katie Walton

explains how Darby, an African Crested

Porcupine, uses its quills when feeling

threatened. Obviously, Darby was in no

distress as treats were readily available

and right under its nose.

Pet Corner

Programs aim to help shelter dogs

The Franklin County Dog Shelter

announced two new programs to benefit

the dogs in their care and the central Ohio

families who love them.

The first is a new initiative called

Holiday Sleepover in which interested residents

can take a dog home for three days

over Thanksgiving, Christmas or New

Year’s. The shelter is closed those days, so

the program provides the pooches with

some extra love and attention on a day

they wouldn’t otherwise have gotten to see

many people, and the extra socialization is

good for the animals’ mental health.

Participating families will be asked to take

pictures of the dog in their care and write

up a paragraph about the experience,

which will be used to help find a permanent

home for the dog. Best of all, families

all over Franklin County will get to bring

the love of a new canine friend into their

homes for the holidays and experience

what it might be like to make a permanent

addition to their families with no long-term

commitment.

“So many families have great memories

of dogs at their holiday get-togethers,” said

Kaye Dickson, director of the Franklin

County Dog Shelter. “And plenty of people

are looking for some extra companionship

this time of year. The Holiday Sleepover

program will get the dogs out into a new

Community Corner

setting for a few days, bring some extra joy

to the holidays for some Franklin County

families, and help out with adoption in the

long run.”

The other initiative is a new family volunteer

program at the dog shelter.

Hundreds of individuals currently volunteer

at the shelter on a regular basis,

but the kinds of things they do with the

dogs aren’t always appropriate for groups,

children or the elderly. The new family volunteer

initiative will be tailored to small

family-sized groups and provide them with

opportunities to help out at the shelter and

bond with each other while spending time

with the dogs. Socialization with different

people is excellent for the animals’ physical

and mental health and helps avoid behavior

problems that can make it difficult to

find a willing permanent adopter.

“For so many of us, dogs are a special

part of our family,” said Dickson. “But not

every family can adopt a dog full-time. This

program will provide an opportunity for

families to spend time together, including

with a loving dog, and will help staff at the

shelter and improve the dog’s long-term

outlook.”

Anyone interested in either the Holiday

Sleepover or family volunteering programs

should email holidaysleepover@franklincountyohio.gov

for more information.

In Entertainment

Sony spins a watered down ‘web’

I was at a peak level of confusion when

Sony announced last year that they were

planning to revisit the ‘Millennium’ series

by the late author and journalist Stieg

Larsson. Up until that point, the distribution

company had let six years pass without

expressing any desire to continue with

their adaptation after the under-performance

of “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”

so to say their newfound interest was puzzling

was to put it lightly.

As I continued to read further into the

announcement, however, the rationale

became clear to me. They didn’t want to

continue with that adaptation as fans and

actors in that film had begged them to do;

they wanted to create a ‘soft reboot’

because they cared about keeping development

rights out of the hands of competing

companies.

It was a rationale that hangs over this

movie. Their ‘soft reboot’ featuring a nonsequel

based off a book not written by

Larsson is a watered down mix of a standard

espionage film complete with tired

twists, turns and tropes. If they were hoping

to kick start a new franchise with “The

Girl in the Spider’s Web,” they might want

to revisit that idea.

It begins as most espionage films do —

The Reel Deal

with a program that is lusted after by baddies

all across the world because it gives

the user access to every nuclear code. Its

creator, Frans Balder (Stephen Merchant),

was removed from further software design

by the NSA after he tried to destroy his

commissioned work.

Fearing for the safety of the world,

Balder contacts prominent hacker Lisbeth

Salander (Claire Foy) to retrieve the software

from the NSA database in order to

destroy it. Likely using Russian spyware,

she easily hacks into the NSA security network

to steal it back.

Thinking her role in this theft is done,

she quickly realizes it is just beginning as a

dangerous organization called the Spiders

are now gunning for her, Balder and

Balder’s genius son August (Christopher

Convery). Feeling just slightly out of her

depth, she contacts her old friend and partner

Mikael Blomkvist (Sverrir Gudnason)

to help her uncover the identity of those on

their heels and perhaps save the world in

the process.

One of the things that made Larsson’s

books and the subsequent theatrical adaptations

(the Swedish version is the ultimate

version, and not just because they

managed to complete the trilogy) so compelling

was how stark and bleak and slightly

inaccessible it is. This film, however, has

a lot of its sharp edges filed down to make

it accessible to a wider audience. The problem

with this is that it’s just not a very

good film. There are pieces in here that

make one think it could have been great —

the relationship between Lisbeth and one

of the Spiders for example and their horrific

backstory and motivation — but the story

and dialogue do not live up to its possibilities.

If there is a saving grace for this film, it

is the performances by its lead and secondary

actors. With her expressive face,

Foy is an interesting choice for the typically

closed off Lisbeth Salander and she

makes this version work, and Sylvia Hoeks

is chilling despite the dialogue working

against her. Lakeith Stanfield also gives a

decent performance as a NSA official

searching for Lisbeth.

If Sony is serious about continuing with

this franchise (and I doubt they are),

they’re going to have to make story

upgrades in the future. No more dulling of

edges and making it more palatable for the

wider audience. Also do some soul-searching

as to whether films about men who

hate women (which, fun fact, was the original

title of

Larsson’s first ‘The

Girl…’ book) is really

what women

want to see right

now. Grade: C-

The Grove City Community Club raised $10,000 to send veterans on a Veterans Day Honor Flight. Here, the veterans gather with the

club members after the one-day trip.

Community Club sends veterans to DC

By Sandi Latimer

Staff Writer

James Sturgeon used the word beautiful

a few times to describe monuments he saw

on his recent trip to Washington DC. His

companion, Larry Baird of Galloway, was

impressed with the World War II monument.

But most of all, the two Vietnam veterans

expressed their thanks to the Grove

City Community Club for sponsoring their

trip on an Honor Flight on Veterans’ Day.

The Community Club, formed during

World War I, known back then as The

Great War, to support the troops. The

members, all women, are still supporting

the troops.

Instead of knitting socks, the women

Helping military children

Tom Rutan of Grove City was recently honored in Cleveland at

the National Conference for the Interstate Compact for

Educational Opportunities for Military Children (MIC 3). Rutan

was the founding commissioner (appointed by Governor Ted

Strickland) for the state of Ohio and created the State Council

and initiated Ohio’s participation in this Interstate Compact.

MIC 3 provides support to the children of active duty and

deployed reserves/guardsmen as they transition from state-tostate

and school-to-school. It advocates for military children in

getting enrolled in new schools, gaining access and eligibility

for extra curricular activities and athletics, receiving credits for

coursework completed at sending schools, having graduation

tests accepted from sending schools and accepting other

course credits needed for graduation. As a result of Rutan’s

five years of leadership with the Ohio Compact, he was honored

at the conference with a plaque stating that the Ohio

Compact Council is named the Thomas D. Rutan State Council.

Pictured with Rutan on the left is Ohio Commissioner Pete

LuPiba.

make noodles, their big fundraiser. That,

coupled with some other smaller projects,

helped the club raise $10,000 to send 20

veterans on Honor Flights to Washington

DC.

An Honor Flight is a trip to Washington

for veterans of the Korean and Vietnam

wars where they visit the various monuments

to the various wars the United

States has been involved in.

“The Washington Monument was beautiful,”

said Sturgeon.

He expressed surprise at the nine-foot

statues in the Korean War display.

“The statue of Iwo Jima was beautiful,”

he went on. “And new this year is a tribute

to the disabled.”

He had praise for the guardians

assigned to the veterans to help make their

day as pleasant as possible.

“Overall, it was just a fantastic day,” he

said, to which Baird agreed.

The veterans had to be at John Glenn

International Airport at 5:30 a.m. and didn’t

get home until 11 p.m. They were greeted

upon their arrival home by members of

the Community Club

“It was a long day,” Baird said, but a

memorable one. But he knew about that

since relatives who are veterans had made

the trip and told him about it.

Cindy Kanwar, the volunteer coordinator

for Honor Flight Columbus, presented

both Sturgeon and Baird large color photos

taken of them during their trip.
