Turkey, ham and all the fixings for over 500<br />

By Dedra Cordle<br />

Staff Writer<br />

What makes for a good Thanksgiving<br />

meal? Is it the turkey and gravy? The<br />

mashed potatoes and stuffing? The rolls and<br />

butter? Or better yet, the assortment of<br />

pies?<br />

If you’re thinking about what is on and<br />

to the side of the plate, perhaps all of those<br />

are the answer. But for the dozens of volunteers<br />

who came out to Phat Daddy’s Pizza<br />

bright and early on Thanksgiving day, the<br />

most delicious treat is preparing hundreds<br />

of meals to make people happy.<br />

“This day means everything to us because<br />

we know it means everything to others,”<br />

said Roger Roberts, brother of Angie<br />

Harris, owner of the London restaurant.<br />

The mission to feed and deliver meals to<br />

the greater <strong>Madison</strong> County community on<br />

Thanksgiving began more than six years<br />

ago when one long-standing service organization<br />

could no longer afford to do the same.<br />

“We started doing this when the HELP<br />

House announced they wouldn’t be able to<br />

one year,” explained Harris. “I was talking<br />

with my girlfriend, Anna [Bingman], about<br />

what a shame that was and then we just<br />

looked at each other and said, ‘Well, why<br />

can’t we do it?’”<br />

Shortly after their spur of the moment<br />

decision, they began sending out feelers to<br />

gauge the community’s interest in a free<br />

Thanksgiving meal and then began seeking<br />

donations to prepare the feast. Harris said<br />

their first try at preparing and delivering<br />

meals was something of a disaster.<br />

“We were so disorganized,” she said with<br />

a laugh. “We didn’t know exactly what we<br />

were getting ourselves into.”<br />

They tried again the following year after<br />

receiving positive feedback from those who<br />

received meals at their homes and at the<br />

restaurant.<br />

“It makes me so emotional thinking<br />

about how people reacted,” Roberts said.<br />

“Some people told us they were going to<br />

spend this day alone and without a cooked<br />

meal if it wasn’t for us coming to see them<br />

[to deliver a meal and talk]. Hearing that<br />

just makes all this effort completely worth<br />

it.”<br />

As the years passed and the meal orders<br />

went up, so too did the need for volunteers.<br />

Looking for a family service project, London<br />

resident Heather Peters decided this event<br />

would be the perfect thing to do with her<br />

husband and young children.<br />

“I thought doing this would be a wonderful<br />

thing for my kids,” she said, referring to<br />

her now 12-year-old daughter, Lauren, and<br />

9-year-old son, Jack. “It teaches them how<br />

to help out, and it teaches them how to be<br />

grateful for what they have.”<br />

Fellow parent volunteer Lisa Jackman<br />

said volunteerism is what the holiday and<br />

community is all about.<br />

“What I love about this community is<br />

that we look out for each other,” she said.<br />

“When someone is in need, we lend a hand.”<br />

While pie slicing volunteers worked the<br />

day before Thanksgiving, the majority of the<br />

volunteers involved in the effort put their<br />

time in on Thanksgiving day.<br />

“Some of us got here at 5:30 a.m. to get<br />

started,” Harris said.<br />

Early morning duty included preparing<br />

the ham, green beans, mashed potatoes,<br />

corn and stuffing. The crew stirred, supervised<br />

and prayed they wouldn’t flip circuit<br />

breakers. Meanwhile, more volunteers<br />

began arriving at 7 a.m. to stuff bags full of<br />

pie, rolls, butter, and utensils. Lauren and<br />

Josh Peters and their friend, Justin Jackman,<br />

manned the roll and butter station.<br />

“Being in charge of the rolls is the best,”<br />

said Josh Peters.<br />

“Yeah, we just sit here and put in the<br />

bread and butter,” added Justin Jackman,<br />

11.<br />

“But we’re hard workers,” said Josh.<br />

Nearby, their parents were speed walking<br />

through the rectangular dining room,<br />

placing other goods in bags.<br />

“We’ve been doing this for a few years<br />

now,” said Lisa Jackman, “so we’ve almost<br />

got this down to a science.”<br />

For more than two hours, the families repeated<br />

this scene for the cold meals and<br />

drinks while the hot meal volunteers continued<br />

to stir, prepare and pray. Around 9:30<br />

a.m., the first of seven sets of drivers came<br />

to deliver meals to hundreds of residents<br />

throughout the county.<br />

“We do this because it’s a good thing for<br />

the community,” said Erin Harris, Angie<br />

Harris’s daughter-in-law who delivers<br />

meals, “and because it [personifies] what<br />

Thanksgiving is all about.”<br />

In total, the volunteers at Phat Daddy’s<br />

<strong>Messenger</strong> photo by Dedra Cordle<br />

Early on Thanksgiving morning, dozens of volunteers gathered at Phat Daddy’s Pizza in<br />

London to prepare more than 500 meals for residents in the greater <strong>Madison</strong> County<br />

area. Here, Rachel Jackman, 9, carefully bags up slices of pumpkin pie.<br />

Pizza helped to prepare, deliver and serve<br />

more than 500 hot and cold meals to residents<br />

who would otherwise not have a traditional<br />

Thanksgiving meal. Angie Harris<br />

said they hope for even more next year.<br />

“Our goal every year is to grow,” she said,<br />

adding that she has no worries about meeting<br />

the demand. “We have a community<br />

that will be there for us, just like we will be<br />

there for them.”

“I’ve been meeting with people within in the school district, but<br />

I want to get out and meet with people in the community, too,” he<br />

said at the Nov. 20 school board meeting.<br />

Towards that goal, he is coordinating a “listening and learning<br />

tour,” a series of meetings at which he will welcome input and questions<br />

from the public.<br />

The first three meetings are set:<br />

• Dec. 6 at 7 p.m. at the Range Township firehouse, 13715 Main<br />

St., Sedalia;<br />

• Dec. 10 at 7 p.m. at the Mount Sterling Community Center, 164<br />

E. Main St., Mount Sterling (Pleasant Twp.);<br />

• Dec. 12 at 7 p.m. at the Fairfield Township<br />

building, 9100 Big Plain-Circleville<br />

Road, London.<br />

“This is an opportunity for the public to<br />

talk to me and let me know their thoughts<br />

on the district,” Eisler said.<br />

The meetings will be informal. Topics<br />

discussed will depend on the interests and<br />

concerns of the people who show up.<br />

Eisler said he will be listening for feedback<br />

on the district’s strengths and weaknesses,<br />

as well as opportunities and threats.<br />

Examples of opportunities are use of data to<br />

drive instruction and increased communications.<br />

Examples of threats are the budget<br />

crisis, aging facilities, and staff retention.<br />

“I hope to do one of these meetings in<br />

each of the district’s townships,” Eisler said.<br />

Student recognition<br />

for their accomplishments, including<br />

<strong>Madison</strong>-Plains Junior High’s eighth-grade football clinched the <strong>2018</strong> Ohio Heritage Conference<br />

South title. Battling through some injuries early in the season, the players learned<br />

what it takes to rally and overcome adversity. A few key seventh-graders played up, helping<br />

to put the Eagles on track to finish the season 5-0 in league play and 5-1-1 overall.

West Jeff’s ‘19 budget $2 million less than ‘18<br />

By Sandi Latimer<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Next year, the village of West Jefferson will operate<br />

on a budget of $2 million less than it did this year.<br />

The reason: the village’s water plant improvements<br />

are nearly complete. The project accounted for $4 million<br />

of the budget in <strong>2018</strong>.<br />

“We don’t have any projects of that scale projected<br />

for 2019,” said Rebecca Arnott, finance director.<br />

On Nov. 19, village council unanimously approved a<br />

budget of $9 million for 2019. The ordinance was approved<br />

on the first reading. Council President Steve<br />

Johnston said budget details were worked out in committee<br />

sessions and special council meetings prior to the<br />

vote.<br />

Council approved pay rates for village employees, including<br />

a 3 percent cost of living raise. Pay rates for the<br />

following positions remain unchanged: mayor, $14,000<br />

per year; clerk of council, $300 per meeting; council<br />

president, $175 per meeting; council vice president,<br />

$150 per meeting; and council members, s$125 per<br />

meeting.<br />

The budget and pay rates take effect Jan. 1, 2019.<br />

In other business, council:<br />

* authorized the issuance of $1 million of a special<br />

London FFA named three-star chapter<br />

London High School FFA members were among 65,000 youths who took part in the 91st National FFA Convention<br />

& Expo in Indianapolis. London was recognized as a three-star chapter, the highest honor in the<br />

chapter award program. The honor goes to FFAs that improve operations using national quality standards<br />

and a program of activities that emphasizes growing leaders, building communities and strengthening agriculture.<br />

London City Schools Superintendent Dr. Lou Kramer and Principal Michael Browning drove to Indianapolis<br />

to witness award presentation. Chapter members toured the National FFA Center, visited the<br />

career show, and attended the World’s Toughest Rodeo. –Submitted by Luke Peart, FFA reporter<br />

Sheriff shares tips for safe, secure holiday season<br />

If there is one item that gets overlooked<br />

on most Christmas shopping lists, it’s your<br />

personal security.<br />

Personal security, especially at this time<br />

of the year, goes beyond making sure that<br />

the house, barn, and car doors are locked. It<br />

means safeguarding yourself from becoming<br />

a victim. Anyone “from 1 to 92” (as the<br />

Christmas carol says) can become a victim<br />

“many times and many ways” and not just<br />

being threatened face-to-face by a thief.<br />

Thieves are pretty smart and pretty good<br />

at what they do. While it is our responsibility<br />

in law enforcement to serve and protect<br />

the well-being of our citizens, we also want<br />

to help reduce the risk of innocent citizens<br />

becoming victims by advising them on precautions<br />

to take to avoid falling prey to<br />

these unscrupulous individuals called<br />

thieves.<br />

So, let’s go on a Christmas security shopping<br />

adventure.<br />

Getting there<br />

The cell phone: Don’t leave home without<br />

it. It is the most important part of the shopping<br />

experience because you never know<br />

where you’re going to be, the mall or Main<br />

Street, when you may need assistance and<br />

your cell phone is your connection for help.<br />

Go as a group: There’s safety in numbers.<br />

Set out as a couple or with family members<br />

or with friends. Thieves are less likely to<br />

target a group than they are to prey on a<br />

lone individual.<br />

The parking lot: Stop, look and listen.<br />

Look around the area where you see a parking<br />

spot. If you notice a suspicious looking<br />

individual, pull away and find another spot.<br />

In the evening, make sure that the area is<br />

well lit. Make a note of where you’ve parked.<br />

Look for and remember the nearest light<br />

poles with aisle markers so that you can go<br />

directly to your vehicle after shopping. You<br />

are easy pickin’s for a thief who notices you<br />

with your arms full, walking aimlessly in<br />

the parking lot looking for your car.<br />

In the stores<br />

Paying for gifts - 1:<br />

Put a card where your<br />

cash would be. Credit<br />

and debit cards are<br />

preferred over cash when checking out. If<br />

used wisely, a credit card, even with its interest,<br />

eliminates the need to carry large<br />

amounts of cash. With a debit card, you<br />

don’t pay interest and you can only spend<br />

up to the amount you have in your account.<br />

Paying for gifts — 2: Swipe and hide.<br />

When using your credit or debit card, hold<br />

on to it. Never let the card leave your hand.<br />

A clerk could easily jot down your account<br />

number and later rack up unexpected purchases<br />

on your account. When swiping your<br />

card, cover up some of the digits in your account<br />

number because someone in line may<br />

be watching you and your card (and it won’t<br />

be Santa Claus). Thieves are trained to<br />

memorize card account numbers faster than<br />

you can imagine.<br />

Paying for gifts — 3: Pinning the debit.<br />

With a debit card, you must enter your personal<br />

identification number (PIN). Your<br />

PIN will show up on the screen as four Xs,<br />

but that trained card reader standing behind<br />

you can follow your fingers as you<br />

input your PIN. Hunch or lean over the<br />

ATM or check-out scanner as you input your<br />

PIN.<br />

Paying for gifts — 4: Checks are out at the<br />

check-out. Try not to use a check. The clerk<br />

will ask you for personal identification<br />

which he or she will jot down on the face of<br />

your check such as your license number or<br />

telephone number. This information along<br />

with your address and bank routing number<br />

that are already on the face of the check can<br />

get into the wrong hands and could result in<br />

a raid on your account.<br />

Wandering and browsing: Bagging the<br />

buys. Sure, you’ll want to see what other departments<br />

or stores have to offer. Don’t set<br />

your bags down and forget about them as<br />

something else catches your eye. A thief can<br />

guest column<br />

Sheriff Jim Sabin<br />

land an easy catch if<br />

you let him. Keep your<br />

hands on your bags or<br />

put them on the<br />

counter in front of you.<br />

If you have too many bags, take them back<br />

to your car and go back for a second round<br />

of shopping.<br />

Mom’s advice: Don’t talk to strangers. If<br />

you are approached by an individual seeking<br />

money, don’t go into your pocket. While<br />

you may be moved to help, you could be aiding<br />

that individual’s drug or alcohol addiction.<br />

Instead of money, offer to buy that<br />

person a sandwich or to purchase something<br />

they may need.<br />

Back to the car<br />

Safeguard your treasures: Everything’s<br />

alright, out of sight. Since you know where<br />

you parked your car, head straight for it<br />

with your purchases, but be aware of what’s<br />

going on around you. A slick thief may be<br />

watching where you’re headed and how<br />

you’ll put your purchases in your car. Place<br />

your purchases out of sight, ideally in your<br />

trunk. Or, put them on the floor and under<br />

a blanket to discourage curiosity seekers.<br />

Home at last<br />

Go straight home: Follow that GPS. After<br />

leaving the mall, you’ll probably want to go<br />

home anyway or stop at a restaurant for a<br />

bite to eat. Remember that you have several<br />

items in the car. If you have to stop for gas<br />

or for that extra something, don’t leave your<br />

car unattended. The best idea is to return<br />

home with those treasures and get them inside<br />

ASAP. Then, head out for eats knowing<br />

that everything is home safe and secure.<br />

Home security -- 1: There’s no place like<br />

home. Make sure your car, home or barn<br />

doors are locked whether you’re home or<br />

not. Dead bolts on doors provide an extra<br />

level of security and serve as deterrents.<br />

The lock on that sliding glass door is usually<br />

less than adequate. Get something like a<br />

broom handle, a length of pipe, or a good<br />

size stick and position it in the door track to<br />

prohibit the door from being opened.<br />

Home security — 2: Make the season<br />

bright. Leave a few interior and exterior<br />

lights on if you plan to return after dark.<br />

Putting lamps and lights on timers is a good<br />

idea as well as leaving a radio on while<br />

you’re out.<br />

Home security — 3: Locked and loaded. A<br />

home security system is yet another deterrent<br />

to a thief. Most systems immediately<br />

notify area law enforcement when security<br />

is breached. They also set off a loud and<br />

sometimes piercing alarm that causes the<br />

would-be thief to immediately flee for fear<br />

of being discovered and apprehended.<br />

Home security —4: Put it in the box. Get<br />

those valuables out of the sock drawer, out<br />

from under the mattress, or out of ceiling<br />

closets and into a safety deposit box at a<br />

local financial institution. A thief knows<br />

where to look for cash and valuables in your<br />

home. Only you can access a safety deposit<br />

box.<br />

After Christmas<br />

Properly dispose of boxes: Look what<br />

they got! Big screen TV and computer boxes<br />

or any container that shows what was inside<br />

placed out on trash day are like billboards<br />

informing thieves that high-priced<br />

items are in the house. Before tossing those<br />

boxes to the curb, cut them up and place<br />

them out in a manner that won’t indicate<br />

that a 50-inch HD TV is at this address.<br />

Something or somebody unusual: That’s<br />

not right. If you notice something or somebody<br />

unusual on your property or in your<br />

neighborhood, call 9-1-1 and report it immediately.<br />

Your call will be routed to the<br />

proper law enforcement agency for response.<br />

And don’t take it upon yourself to<br />

investigate. Remain indoors behind locked<br />

doors until an officer arrives on the scene.<br />

On behalf of the <strong>Madison</strong> County Sheriff’s<br />

Office, I wish you and your family a safe<br />

and happy holiday season.<br />

Jim Sabin is sheriff of <strong>Madison</strong> County.<br />

Counties work together to benefit children, families<br />

As good neighbors, each of our county<br />

Family & Children First Councils want to<br />

provide some clarifying information related<br />

to ongoing partnership and collaboration between<br />

the Union County and <strong>Madison</strong><br />

County councils for our community members<br />

in response to the article “Change in<br />

Early Intervention” published in the <strong>Madison</strong><br />

<strong>Messenger</strong> on Oct. 30, <strong>2018</strong>.<br />

To date, our counties have partnered together<br />

creatively for the benefit of families<br />

and children in both <strong>Madison</strong> and Union<br />

counties, sharing of a council coordinator,<br />

supporting shared services to implement<br />

early intervention,<br />

many combined trainings<br />

hosted through<br />

both counties and ongoing learning communities.<br />

This collaboration continues and<br />

adapts to the framework that is forever<br />

changing at the state level to meet mandates,<br />

etc.<br />

As programs and services have grown<br />

over the years, the need for individual<br />

county dedicated staff and program supervision<br />

has become necessary. An example of<br />

this growth was seen in late 2017 when the<br />

shared coordinator position ended, resulting<br />

letter<br />

in the creation of fulltime<br />

Union and <strong>Madison</strong><br />

Family Council<br />

coordinators. This change has been to the<br />

benefit of families and children in both<br />

counties and continues to strengthen our<br />

partnership through the shared Strong<br />

Families, Safe Communities OMHAS grant<br />

that supports Wraparound services for<br />

multi-system youth, focusing on gaps individual<br />

to each county. Wraparound bridges<br />

these gaps, focusing on strengths and community<br />

connections.<br />

We continue to be committed to working<br />

together to the benefit of children and families<br />

in both counties and want to offer reassurance<br />

to families and children served,<br />

community partners and organizations that<br />

our partnership is strong. The county line<br />

doesn’t diminish the need for services or<br />

deter our efforts to work together towards<br />

solutions when there is an opportunity.<br />

Jenn Coleman, <strong>Madison</strong> County Family<br />

& Children First Council<br />

Mental Health Board dubs Dhume as exceptional<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> County Commissioner David<br />

Dhume received the Jon “Charlie” Alder<br />

Award at the Mental Health & Recovery<br />

Board (MHRB) of Clark, Greene & <strong>Madison</strong><br />

Counties Annual Exceptional People<br />

Awards.<br />

The award recognizes individuals who<br />

have made outstanding contributions to alcohol,<br />

drug, and mental health services in<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> County.<br />

“David’s ability to connect and share resources<br />

championing prevention goals in<br />

our county has been of the utmost importance<br />

and has positively impacted many<br />

lives,” said Amanda Hampton, family services<br />

and prevention education programs<br />

manager for <strong>Madison</strong> County.<br />

“I am continually amazed at his passion<br />

and depth of knowledge, and his dedication<br />

to going above and beyond to champion preventative<br />

efforts in <strong>Madison</strong> County, the<br />

state of Ohio, and nationally so that preventative<br />

activities become part of our everyday<br />

culture.”<br />

Dhume reinvigorated Family Council to<br />

pool dollars and address community needs<br />

of families and children, according to Greta<br />

Mayer, chief executive officer of MHRB. He<br />

also advocates for data-informed planning<br />

and service needs and delivery.<br />

The primary role of the MHRB is to plan,<br />

fund and monitor services for people with serious and persistent<br />

mental illness and alcohol and other drug addictions throughout<br />

the three-county area. In collaboration with more than 20 member<br />

agencies, the board advocates for and supports a system of effective<br />

treatment, prevention and supportive services for residents.<br />

Cottonwood top tree for <strong>2018</strong><br />

In 2008, The Ohio State University Extension<br />

adopted a “Why Trees Matter” campaign and that<br />

same year, the <strong>Madison</strong> County Master Gardeners<br />

started a Heritage Tree program.<br />

The program recognizes trees located in <strong>Madison</strong><br />

County and of an age and size deemed a “heritage<br />

tree.”<br />

Past winners have included a burr magnolia,<br />

sugar maple, swamp oak and sycamore.<br />

This year’s winner is an Eastern cottonwood<br />

owned by Dan Siesel and located at 207 E. High<br />

St., London. The tree is estimated at 80-plus feet<br />

tall and measures 17 feet in circumference at five<br />

feet off the ground with a crown spread at 75 feet.<br />

According to Siesel, “The original owners of the<br />

property were Hiram and Emaline Richmond in<br />

1870. The Richmonds opened the property to the<br />

London citizens most weekends for picnicking and<br />

relaxing. Emaline called the property ‘Elm Grove’<br />

because of the massive elms that covered the<br />

property before the Dutch elm disease decimated<br />

the species here and throughout the country. The<br />

designation of this tree seems appropriate as a<br />

continuation of the original owners’ admiration<br />

and honor to the property history.”<br />

Eastern cottonwood, populous deltoids, can<br />

reach a mature height of 70 to 100 feet with a life<br />

span of 50 to 200 years. Clad in gray bark with<br />

deep flat furrows, cottonwoods are trees of riverbanks<br />

and wet areas and are best known for the<br />

massive release of seed-bearing “cotton” in the<br />

spring, hence its name.<br />

Extension Office at (740) 852-0975 for a 2019<br />

Master Gardener Heritage Tree nomination form.<br />

Because London High School’s football team<br />

did so well this season, advancing deep into<br />

the state playoffs, some winter sports team<br />

photos were delayed. The <strong>Madison</strong> <strong>Messenger</strong><br />

will publish the boys’ basketball, wrestling, and<br />

South Charleston<br />

More vendors, bigger cash prize, heaps of cheer<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> Editor<br />

“I tell my friends from out of town that if they want to feel like<br />

they’re in the middle of a Hallmark movie, they should come to<br />

Christmas in South Charleston,” said Jennifer McKee, chair of this<br />

year’s event, set for 4-8 p.m. Dec. 5.<br />

“People are in and out of businesses, music is playing, there are<br />

lights and decorations, treats and activities. The businesses reach<br />

out to the community, and the community is really good about<br />

reaching back.”<br />

The South Charleston Community Club presents the annual<br />

event, now in its 2<strong>2nd</strong> year. Along with tried and true traditions,<br />

many new features are part of this year’s festivities, including expanded<br />

vendor spaces.<br />

Previously, crafters, sellers of handmade items, and other small<br />

business owners set up shop at First Presbyterian Church. This<br />

year, they’ll also be at Gilbert’s Youth Center.<br />

“We’re in a growth period, and we’re trying to fill in all over<br />

town,” McKee said.<br />

The Community Club also is trying something new with decorating.<br />

They are asking residents and businesses on routes 41 and<br />

42, which intersect, to decorate their windows, houses and/or yards<br />

with white lights for White Light the Village.<br />

“If we get a lot of participation, we want to send a drone up to<br />

see if the lights form a cross,” McKee said.<br />

The Community Club’s longstanding raffle is back with its biggest<br />

grand prize ever—$500 in cash. More than 65 other prizes are up for<br />

grabs, as well, including cash, gift certificates, and merchant services.<br />

The drawing is set for 8 p.m. during Christmas in the Village. Tickets<br />

are $1 each or six for $5 and can be purchased in advance at Village<br />

Cup or the night of the drawing at various locations.<br />

Children have a chance to win cash prizes, too, through “village<br />

passport.” Participants visit as many businesses as possible to have<br />

their passports stamped, then turn the passports in at First Presbyterian<br />

Church where a drawing will be held. One boy and one girl will<br />

win $50 each. Passports will be available at participating businesses.<br />

Santa is the star of a parade that steps off at 5:30 p.m. from Journey<br />

of Faith Church and travels to Sunrise Co-op. Afterwards,<br />

Santa will spend the rest of the evening at town hall listening to<br />

children’s wishes and posing for photos.<br />

Other Christmas in the Village hotspots include:<br />

Candlelight Service<br />

of of Remembrance<br />

24th day of January, 2019, at 2:30 o’clock p.m.<br />

It is alleged in the petition, pursuant to R.C. 3107 .07, that the consent of Ryan Andrew<br />

Henderson is not required due to the following:<br />

X That person is a parent who has failed without justifiable cause to provide more than de<br />

minimis contact with the minor for a period of at least one year immediately preceding the<br />

filing of the adoption petition or the placement of the minor in the home of the petitioner.<br />

X That person is a parent who has failed without justifiable cause to provide for the maintenance<br />

and support of the minor as required by law or judicial decree for a period of at least<br />

one year immediately preceding the filing of the adoption petition or the placement of the<br />

minor in the home of the petitioner.<br />

State other grounds under R.C. 3107.07 (includes putative father of the minor born prior<br />

to January 1, 1997).<br />

“A FINAL DECREE OF ADOPTION, IF GRANTED, WILL RELIEVE YOU OF ALL PARENTAL RIGHTS AND RESPONSI-<br />

BILITIES, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO CONTACT THE MINOR, AND, EXCEPT WITH RESPECT TO A SPOUSE OF THE<br />

ADOPTION PETITIONER AND RELATIVES O THAT SPOUSE, TERMINATE ALL LEGAL RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN<br />

THE MINOR AND YOU AND THE MINOR’S OTHER RELATIVES, SO THAT THE MINOR THEREAFTER IS A STRANGER<br />

TO YOU AND THE MINOR’S FORMER RELATIVES FOR ALL PURPOSES. IF YOU WISH TO CONTEST THE ADOPTION,<br />

YOU MUST FILE AN OBJECTION TO THE PETITION WITHIN FOURTEEN DAYS AFTER PROOF OF SERVICE OF<br />

NOTICE OF THE FILING OF THE PETITION AND OF THE TIME AND PLACE OF HEARING IS GIVEN TO YOU, IF YOU<br />

WISH TO CONTEST THE ADOPTION, YOU MUST ALSO APPEAR AT THE HEARING. A FINAL DECREE OF ADOPTION<br />

MAY BE ENTERED IF YOU FAIL TO FILE AN OBJECTION TO THE ADOPTION PETITION OR APPEAR AT THE<br />

HEARING.”<br />
