FT trustees

debate hiring

administrator

By Amanda Ensinger

Staff Writer

The Franklin Township trustees are

considering bringing on a township administrator.

In order to fund this position, the

trustees decided to make cuts elsewhere.

At a special meeting held recently in

November, the board approved legislation

to eliminate the position of administrative

coordinator, held by Jessica Rice. The

trustees also approved a resolution to

remove funding to pay the assistant fiscal

officer and redirect those funds to be utilized

for a future township administrator.

The assistant fiscal officer position was

held by Robyn Watkins.

During the regular board meeting,

Franklin Township Fiscal Officer Lisa

Morris questioned the legislation.

“The auditor has said I need full-time

staff and part-time help, yet they are

removing an item that pays the only help I

have,” said Morris. “This department is

the heart of the township and with the

passing of this resolution, I once again

have no help, leaving everything on me.”

Trustee Aryeh Alex, who proposed the

hiring of a township administrator, said

the ending of the administrative coordinator

position and removing funding for the

assistant fiscal officer simply has to do

with the township’s need to hire a township

administrator sooner rather than

later.

“We have lost out on a variety of economic

development in the township

because we don’t have a professional,”

Alex said. “We lack the strategic leadership

and need someone who is an expert.

We want to protect the township and the

city is aggressively annexing the township.

If we don’t move forward with hiring someone,

we will get left behind.”

Alex also cited Westland Mall as an

example of a growth opportunity for the

township that they could miss out on if

they don’t hire a township administrator.

Using Jackson and Prairie townships as

an example, Alex said hiring administrators

have turned those communities

around.

Rat problem in Prairie

By Amanda Ensinger

Staff Writer

It is a “rat race” in Prairie Township as

residents have complained about rodents

in the township.

“Since the late spring, we have seen a

dramatic increase in complaints about rats

in the township,” said Tracy Hatmaker,

administrator for Prairie Township. “The

complaints have been in the eastern and

urban areas of the township.”

According to Hatmaker, as of this fall,

the township has received 42 rat complaints

in 2018. This is nearly triple the

number of complaints received in 2017.

“On average we get a couple a year, but

never anything like this,” Hatmaker said.

Public Health is send out post cards warning

people of the rat issue in the township

and giving them tips on how to avoid getting

an infestation of rodents. Among these

suggestions is to not feed them, give them

a place to live and contact pest control professionals

right away if you see a rat.

Some of the things residents can do to

avoid having rats on their property is to

eliminate food sources for them, including

making sure the trash is in sealed containers,

not leaving out food for stray cats or

other animals, cleaning up old food from

vegetables gardens that wasn’t harvested,

not leaving out bird seed for birds and picking

up dog feces.

“Other things you can do to avoid having

rats on your property include making sure

there is no stale or standing water on your

property, looking at your sheds and making

sure they are not burrowing under them,

not having wood or brush piles and keeping

your grass and weeds tidy,” Hatmaker

said.

Hatmaker added that rats can fit

through half inch gaps so sealing all points

of entry in your home and buildings also is

helpful.

While most of the rats in the township

have been outside, there is always a chance

they could come inside, especially due to

cold weather. For those who have an infestation

of rats, some of the things you can do

www.columbusmessenger.com

to get rid of them is to keep all traps and

poisons away from areas where pets and

children can access them, use gloves when

disposing of dead rats and place them in a

tightly sealed trash container and make

sure you clean up the infested area to prevent

more rodents from coming.

Prairie Township and Franklin County

Public Health recommend hiring a professional

to eliminate the rodents from your

property, if possible.

“We also have created a call-in line to

report rats,” Hatmaker said. “We would

like everyone to report when they have a

rat issue, so we can see what areas of the

township are affected, if there is a pattern

and other useful information to eliminate

this issue.”

Hatmaker said the township does not

have a time line of when they expect this

issue to be resolved and said it will be an

ongoing battle until they see complaints

decrease.

“Once you have an infestation of rats, it

takes a while to get rid of them,” Hatmaker

said. “However, this is a priority for us and

we are doing everything in our power to

eliminate these pests.”

ADMINISTRATOR

Continued from page 1

Jessica Rice, the former administrative

coordinator, was paid approximately

$34,320 a year and Robyn Watkins, the

assistant to the fiscal officer, was paid

approximately $35,000 a year. Township

officials propose taking their salary and

using it to pay for a firm to search for a

township administrator, then pay the

administrator a yearly salary.

Alex proposed paying Novak Consulting

$21,500 to find candidates and then pay

the new administrator between $40,000

and $50,000 a year.

However, despite voting in favor of ending

the assistant coordinator position and

removing funding in the fiscal office,

trustees Ralph Horn and John Fleshman

were hesitant about moving forward with

hiring the consulting firm.

“When we originally talked about this in

June, we said we would look at grants to

support this position,” Horn said.

Fleshman agreed and said he doesn’t

feel good about the way this decision was

handled.

“I feel we made a mistake in how this

was done and we should have done things

differently,” Fleshman said. “I agree we

need an administrator, but we should have

given them (the employees) notice. Both

Jessica and Robyn do a variety of things for

this township and that should be acknowledged.”

The board tabled voting on contracting

with Novak Consulting until a later date.

Audit could save money for residents

By Amanda Ensinger

Staff Writer

Prairie Township residents could see some more

money in their bank accounts next year.

At a recent board meeting, residents were informed

that the Prairie Township Fire Department has drastically

improved its public protection classification

(PPC). As a result, property owners may see lower

insurance premiums in 2019.

“We recently had an audit by the Insurance Service

Audit (ISO) and they evaluated our fire department,”

said Prairie Township Assistant Chief Allen Scott.

“During this audit, they looked at our emergency call

services, the operations of the fire department and our

water access.”

After the audit, fire departments are given a rating.

The lower the rating the better because that means

less risk. If fire departments have a low rating, then

residents usually see a decrease in insurance premiums

because there is less of a risk to their home.

Insurance companies use PPCs to determine the severity

of fire risk to properties they insure.

When the township last took the assessment, they

had a 5/8b in 2011, however now the township has a

score of 2/2y.

Scott said he believes the reason for this dramatic

improvement is related to changes the department

made since their last audit.

Immunizations in Prairie Twp.

Franklin County Public Health will offer adult and

child immunizations on Dec. 20 at the Prairie

At a recent Franklin Township meeting, the board

gave an update on trash service in the township.

“We previously had looked at joining a consortium

with other municipalities to get trash service, but that

fell through,” said John Fleshman, township trustee.

“A trash contract would have benefited everyone

throughout the township and if we had been able to

join this we would have had cheaper rates than having

a contract on our own.”

However, according to leadership, the reason the

township was not able to join the consortium was

because the trash hauler wanted every township resident

to participate. The hauler also wanted the township

to pay for delinquent bills and recoup the money

from residents via property taxes.

Local Waste Services, who provided trash service to

the township until this year, said the reason they

required this is because the township had a very low

participation rate and residents weren’t paying their

bills.

According to Eric DeHayes of Local Waste Services,

the township had only a 27 percent participation rate

and Local Waste had lost approximately $150,000

worth of services in unpaid bills.

community events

“After the 2011 audit, we added automatic aid with

the City of Columbus Fire Department, allowing us to

utilize their personnel and equipment as if it were our

own,” Allen said. “We also contracted with the Ohio

Fire Academy to provide online training for all personal

and contracted with the Grove City Police

Department for dispatching services.”

At the end of 2017, Prairie Township transitioned

its dispatching services to Grove City because the

township no longer had the budget, staff or resources

to support internal dispatching, according to department

officials.

The township pays Grove City approximately

$211,000 a year for dispatching services. It cost

approximately $331,000 a year for dispatching when

the township was coordinating it internally.

Allen said this audit shows these changes were necessary

and ensure the protection of the township.

“These changes are directly responsible for the

much lower rating received during the most recent

ISO evaluation,” Allen said.

Allen added that while he cannot tell residents how

much they would save, he does believe residents will

see lower insurance premiums.

“Both residential and business property owners

often pay less for insurance if their fire department

has a lower rating,” Scott said. “I am pretty confident

you will get some good news in February 2019 when

the new ISO rates go into effect.”

Tree Lighting

The Prairie Township Community Center will host

its annual Tree Lighting holiday event from 4 to 6 p.m.

Dec. 2 at 5955 West Broad St. For more information,

call the center at 614-907-7990.

Trash collection discussed in township

In 2019, township officials hope to reexamine trash

and potentially bring back one hauler to the township.

In other news, Jim Stevens, superintendent for the

road department, asked for a resolution to create set

parking at Township Hall and eliminate parking next

to buildings.

According to Stevens, with so many employees at

Township Hall, it is impossible for the road workers to

pull their equipment in and out because employees are

parking everywhere.

Recently, both the police and fiscal office moved

back to Township Hall after being located at 963

Harrisburg Pike. Despite some objections from township

employees, the trustees said it made more sense

to have all staff housed on the same property.

However, as a result of the move, parking has now

become an issue.

“I would like to request that between the hours of

8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. that our parking lot is for facility

and office staff only,” Stevens said. “We need more

parking, but for right now, this will fix this issue.”

The trustees also want to add parking for staff and

guests at property adjacent to Township Hall at 2193

Frank Road.

“We need a more long-term solution than this,” said

Fleshman. “My hope is next year we can add some

parking so everyone has a little more room.”

Recycling 1880s style

People on Ohio farms in the 1880s lived

“Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do

without!”

Farm families of the 1880s did not live

in a disposable culture. They could not easily

make frequent trips to town to the store

for needed items. They labored long hours

to earn their money so they reused as much

material as they could on the farm.

“Everything was used,” said Slate Run

Living Historical Farm worker Rachel

Brooks. “There was little to no waste.”

Brooks cited the butchering process as

an example where meat for food was salted

and smoked, animal fat was used to make

soap, bones could be ground up for other

uses, and animal hides turned into leather.

“They tried to get as much use out of a

product as they could,” said Brooks.

At first glance, some things seem

unlikely for reuse, such as ash leftover

from burning wood in the farm’s stoves.

While soap from a store was available, the

pioneer farmers often made their own soap

by pouring water through ashes to create

lye. The lye was combined with clean animal

fat and then heated and thickened into

a soap for bathing and for laundry uses.

Ashes could also be combined with sand to

create a scrubbing cleanser for skillets and

such.

Cleaning wasn’t the only use for leftover

ashes as the substance was also used by

1880s era farmers to fertilize the garden or

fields as well as being dusted on broccoli,

cabbage, and cauliflower to ward off

insects.

Turns out a lot of things on the farm

could be reused as fertilizer to enrich the

soil in the fields, including ground bone

meal, straw, corn cobs, and manure.

A farm in the 1880s could plant up to 60

acres of corn, which would produce thousands

of pounds of corn cobs. Nothing will

eat a corn cob, so other uses were found for

this abundant item, including using it as a

scrubbing tool or turning the cobs into toys.

Cobs could also be cut into discs and used

as checkers for a game of checkers.

After threshing time, straw was abundant

and could be used for stuffing horse

collars, made into straw hats, used as

mulch, made into livestock bedding, or

twisted into a rope.

Turnips, beets, potatoes, and carrots

were protected during shipping by packing

them in sawdust. Sawdust could also be

smoldered to produce smoke for smoking

meat. Hickory or apple wood sawdust was

When it came to the livestock, the hog

was the ultimate example of reuse on the

1880s farm as almost every part of the animal

could be used for something. The old

saying goes, “You can use everything but

the squeal.”

Farm recycling in the 1880s was not

limited to the barnyard as the farmhouse

kitchen also was an active place of reuse for

various items.

Eggshells could be crushed and fed to

the chickens to enrich their calcium levels.

Apples were primarily for eating, but

their peels could be boiled and then the

juice strained and cooked to be used in

jelly. The remnant boiled peels were then

fed to the hogs.

Stale bread and cake crumbs could be

made into puddings and dressings.

The kitchen’s “slop bucket” would contain

scraps, odd leftovers, peelings, and

other such things which would be fed to the

hogs. The hogs were sort of the 19th century

version of a garbage disposal.

Used dishwater was not poured down a

drain. Instead it was gathered up and used

to water plants.

The farmhouse would also have a “rag

bag” of odds and ends pieces of cloth that

could be used for washing windows and

lamp chimneys, as well as for other household

cleaning. When these rags became too

worn for further use, they could be sold or

traded to be used to make paper. Rags

could also be fashioned into toys, like a rag

doll.

“It’s interesting to look back and see

what lengths our ancestors could, and

would, go to in order to reuse things,” said

Brooks.

County initiatives to help homeless pets

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 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

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.

Anyone interested in either the Holiday

Sleepover or family volunteering programs

should email holidaysleepover@franklincountyohio.gov

for more information.

‘Ralph’ sequel cute with a great message

One of the great cinematic delights of

2012 was “Wreck-It Ralph,” a nostalgiafilled

animated feature starring the “bad

guy” of a popular arcade game who was on

a desperate quest to change his reputation.

When the film had its theatrical run, it

didn’t exactly light the box office on fire but

a strong word of mouth — as well as an

Academy Award nomination for Best

Animated Feature — gave it legs throughout

the years and it has since come to be

viewed as one of the best animated features

to come from Disney in the modern era.

To the surprise of many, the studio that

is not known to greenlight sequels to their

popular animated films greenlit a sequel to

this popular animated film. The only question

was could it live up to the greatness of

the original.

The answer to the question is both yes

and no. “While Ralph Breaks the Internet”

does excel in some areas visually, it is not

Boosters will host Santa’s Swinging

Spaghetti Dinner from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

as engaging as its predecessor nor does it

have its charm. With that being said, however,

it still is a really cute movie with a

great message.

It begins six years after the events of

Wreck-It Ralph with best friends Ralph

(voiced by John C. Reilly) and Princess

Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman)

still basking in the glow of having found a

true partner. For as long as they have been

coded, they struggled to find someone who

could love them for who they are which

makes it hard for them to break away from

the other, even when it comes time to playing

in their respective games.

During a typical morning at Litwak’s

Family Fun Center and Arcade, something

atypical happens when Mr. Litwak (Ed

O’Neill) installs WiFi (or “Wee-Fee,” as

some of the arcade characters pronounce it)

as a gaming option. While curious about

this great unknown, the characters stay

community events

Dec. 13 at Grove City High School, 4665

Hoover Road. The event will feature dinner,

raffles and performances by the jazz

bands. The cost is $12 for adults and $8 for

away after being warned of its potential

dangers.

As they days go by, this magical WiFi

becomes an afterthought to the arcade

patrons, but when an accident befalls

Sugar Rush and puts the life of the game in

jeopardy, Ralph and Vanellope brave this

new world when they learn the Internet

has the part to revive it. While there, they

discover newfound interests and jealousies

that could tear their friendship apart.

After a slow start, the film picks up

steam when the duo finally make it to the

expansive world of the Internet but it

comes with a mixed bag of ideas and wayward

plots. Like the web itself, there is so

much to see and experience visually (and so

many product placements!) that it makes it

somewhat harder to pay attention to the

differing stories of Ralph and Vanellope as

they grow and regress in this new realm.

This, I thought, was the big mistake of the

seniors and children under 10 years of age.

Proceeds will go toward instrument repair

and purchase. For more information, visit

www.gchsbands.org.

movie as they truly are the beating heart of

this franchise.

While “Ralph Breaks the Internet” is

definitely a dazzling and entertaining film

to watch, it lacks the warmth of the original.

It won’t be for everyone, but it’s a good

option if you’re looking for a sweet family

film with a nice message about personal

growth. Grade: B
