Original clock will count the minutes again

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

The Madison County commissioners can

tick another task off their to-do list. They

have made a decision about the courthouse

clock.

Just before Thanksgiving, the commissioners

voted 2-1 to restore the clock to its

original condition. The clock hasn’t reliably

kept time for several years. Some of the

faces have stopped working altogether.

The commissioners considered several options.

Two possibilities were to repair or replace

the existing clock mechanism, installed

in 1974 after the Xenia tornado damaged the

clock tower. A new clock mechanism would

have cost roughly $30,000.

The third option was to restore and install

the original clock mechanism and replace

the clock faces, including the white

backgrounds, hands and numbers. The original

clock dates back to 1982. The initial estimate

for this option was $120,000. It is

now $95,000, thanks to volunteers who

have stepped up to reduce labor costs.

Commissioners David Dhume and David

Hunter voted for the full restoration option.

Mark Forrest voted against it.

“To me, financially it didn’t make sense,”

Forrest said, adding that the county has

other financial priorities.

Hunter and incoming commissioner Dr.

Tony Xenikis have been big proponents of

bringing the clock back to its original state.

They have talked extensively with Phil

Wright, an expert in tower clock restoration

who has the original clock mechanism in

storage at his shop in South Charleston.

Dhume said the deciding factor for him

was the money that Madison County Treasurer

Donna Landis pledged to the project.

“That was quite helpful to us in making

our decision,” he said.

The commissioners approved $60,000

from the general fund for the project. When

Landis heard they needed more money, she

offered up funds from her office’s delinquent

tax fund. Mobile home taxes, special assessments,

and 5 percent of the county’s delinquent

property tax collections go into the

fund. She said she will use money from the

fund to cover the remaining cost of the project.

“I just want it fixed,” Landis said. “It’s an

embarrassment to the county to have a

clock that doesn’t work. I think people depend

on it.”

Originally, the county was going to put

the project out to bid. By law, any expendi-

faces connected to the tower clock (the small metal mechanism

recently voted to restore and install the original clock mechanism,

which dates back to the 1892, and replace the clock faces, including

the white backgrounds, hands and numbers.

Madison County leaders have devised a plan that should allow

Dollar General to break ground on a new store in Mount Sterling

as early as March.

On Dec. 4, Dave Hughes, the county’s building and zoning director,

approached the county commissioners with concerns about how

to handle zoning for the site.

Dollar General plans to build the store on property located near

the intersection of U.S. Rte. 62 and Third Street, across the road

from Whiteside Automotive. The land sits

outside of the Mount Sterling corporation

limits and, as such, falls under county zoning.

Currently, the property is zoned mostly

residential; a small part is zoned commercial.

The county’s comprehensive land use

plan, which sets zoning for the county’s unincorporated

areas, is up for review next

year. Commissioner Mark Forrest said it is

very likely the area where Dollar General

wants to build will switch from residential

to commercial.

Hughes said that while that might be the

case, Dollar General wants to break ground

before the land use plan review is finished.

Rob Slane, county administrator, estimates

the review process will wrap up in June.

County Prosecutor Stephen Pronai suggested

that the company request a conditional

use permit for the property with a

promise to come back for rezoning once the

comprehensive plan is updated. If approved,

a conditional use permit would allow the

company to move forward with development

plans on its preferred timeline.

“I don’t want to lose a business down in

Mount Sterling,” Pronai said about his desire to find a solution that

makes the store possible.

“I think it would be a very good thing for (Mount Sterling),” said

Commissioner David Hunter, noting the village has been without

a grocery store for several years. The Dollar General store will offer

some grocery items.

Slane said the township trustees have indicated they want the

zoning change to happen. Commissioner David Dhume requested

that the trustees pass a resolution that officially states their preference

to see the zoning designation change to commercial.

Forrest suggested that the trustees present the resolution as an

“emergency need for the community.”

Hughes said he hopes to have the conditional use permit paperwork

ready for a public hearing with the Board of Zoning Appeals

in early January.

Located in the Burr Oaks subdivision, the property has access

to county sewer services but not water.

Comprehensive Land Use Plan Review

The county has formed a committee to oversee the review

process. The plan is reviewed every four years.

Members of the committee are: Julia Cumming of the Madison

County Soil and Water Conservation District; Bryan Dhume,

county engineer; Mary Griffith, agricultural and natural resources

educator with the Madison County Ohio State University Extension;

David Hughes, county building and zoning director; David

Kell, executive director of the Madison County Chamber of Commerce

and Madison County Future Community Improvement

Corp.; and Rob Slane, county administrator.

The committee will do most of the legwork on the review process,

Slane said, but also will form and consider input from an advisory

committee made up of people representing various professions and

interests. The review process will include a residential survey to

get input from the public at large. The committee’s first official

meeting took place Dec. 6.

ture over $50,000 must go out to bid.

On Dec. 4, Rob Slane, county administrator, said the project is

no longer going out to bid. Instead, it has been broken down into

three separate projects—restoration of the clock mechanism, installation

of the clock mechanism, and reproduction of the hands and

numbers—each of which will cost less than $50,000.

The project has tight specs, the main one being use of the original

clock mechanism. According to Wright, the No. 17 Seth Thomas

clock is rare. It’s one of the bigger clocks the company made and is

capable of striking a very large bell. The striker is a 55-pound hammer

connected to the mechanism. The county has restored the

3,000-pound bell, which hangs in the clock tower.

Wright acquired the clock about 25 years ago from the Madison

County Historical Society, which was downsizing its collection in a

move from the county fairgrounds in London.

“It was going to be discarded. I told Phil to come and get it,” said

Tim Wilson, an antique-clock enthusiast who was on the Madison

County Fair Board at the time.

Wright said he has held onto the clock all these years in the

hopes that it would one day return to its original place.

Slane said he is waiting to receive final project paperwork and

costs from Wright. The first phases will be the clock repair and installation.

The third phase will be the creation and installation of

the faces. Altogether, the project will take about nine months to

complete, Slane said.

Wilson, who is volunteering his time to help with the clock project,

recently contacted the Madison County Historical Society to see

if they had any other parts from the original clock. It turns out they

have two of the numbers, the V (5) and the XI (11); they are made

out of cast iron. They will serve as references for creating new numbers

out of aluminum that match the original style. The new hands

will be made of aluminum, too; each will be eight feet long.

Decorating the present with pieces of the past

I love traditions, especially at

Christmas.

A 1960-era plastic Santa Claus

face backed by a pleated aluminum Linda Dillman

circle circa 1960, with a curlicue

beard so sparse I conducted a transplant last

year, sits high atop my tree. It held court on

spruces, firs and pines when I was a child, traveled

across the country when we celebrated

Christmas in other states, and glowed with a single

bulb when we lived in Japan.

When I was 6 years old, I accompanied my

mother for the first time back to Austria, the country

of her birth and home to holiday traditions

dating back centuries. A kindly, little old lady did not let a language

barrier stop her from giving a shy American schoolgirl a homemade

pine cone Santa sporting a bright red cloth hat and clutching a tiny

wax candle.

Fifty-six years later, he continues to occupy a place of honor in a

hutch my grandmother passed down to me. Every year, I straighten

the candle he clutches, re-glue his pine cone arm and set him in a

place of honor. Throughout the rest of the year, he resides next to a

partially burned wax candle in the shape of a fireplace, which sat

on the shelf of a paperboard fireplace in the house where I grew up,

which didn’t have a real fireplace.

I now have a wood burning stove flanked by a brick wall and

topped by a cherry mantle, but I fondly remember the cardboard fireplace

my parents put up for many years before it fell apart, much

like the nearly 30-year-old artificial tree we replaced last year.

Our faux Christmas tree lost needles at the rate of a real-life

counterpart. Over the years, some of its branches were rigged in

place. We bought it in 1986, the first Christmas we spent in Japan

when we were stationed at Misawa Air Force Base. The local Boy

Scout troop sold live trees, but we were forewarned if we wanted to

keep a tree up for longer than a week to get a fake one.

I never liked the idea of a tree that you assembled from scratch.

It seemed anti-holiday, but necessity is not only the mother of invention,

it also comes in handy in extending the Christmas season

when you’re thousands of miles from home. We bought a tree-in-abox

at the local base exchange, covered it in family treasures and

periodically sprayed it with pine scent.

I clung to that tree for nearly three decades. It, like me, continued

to hang on, despite broken limbs (I dislocated and broke my

ankle for the first time two weeks before I turned 50), falling needles

and the march of time.

The tree was part of our family, our holiday scrapbook and, until

it was beyond repair, stood front and center in our front room window.

Today its successor, one in which I still string my own largebulb

lights, stands tall and perfect in our living room.

On its branches are ornaments old and new. One is a small ceramic

bear painted in splotches of color, the outcome of an afternoon

of crafting that resulted in our youngest daughter taking first place

The holiday season is for giving, not

only gifts and time, but also sharing

germs. With the colder weather brings

infections that can put a damper on your

holiday plans.

Influenza is one of the biggest worries, but pertussis

can be just as serious. Pertussis or whooping cough is a

respiratory infection that is best known for the “whooping”

sound that is made when coughing. This can cause

the person to gasp for air after a coughing fit. The cough

can last for up to 10 weeks and, like influenza, can be

very dangerous for infants and older adults.

According to the Centers for Disease Control approximately

half of all babies less than 1 year old are hospitalized

because of pertussis. Worldwide, there are

annually around 24.1 million cases of pertussis and

about 160,700 deaths per year.

The good news is that there are things you can do to

prevent pertussis. The Advisory Committee of Immunization

Practices recommends that

children get the DTaP vaccine as part

of their primary series, five doses as

well as a booster Tdap at the age of 12

or going into seventh grade. It is also

recommended that adults over the age

of 65 and pregnant women receive a

dose of the Tdap vaccine.

Vaccination along with good hand

hygiene, covering your cough and

staying home when you are ill, can

help prevent the spread of this potentially

dangerous infection.

For more information about the

pertussis vaccine, call your physician’s office or Madison

County Public Health at (740) 852-3065.

‘Sounds of the Season’ will fill the air on Dec. 16

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

With its annual Sounds of the Season,

the Madison County Arts Council offers up

a chance to relax, listen and smile.

“The holidays always elicit this level of

unnecessary stress. There just seems to be

so much angst surrounding this season,”

said Brynne Adkins, Arts Council secretary.

“The Arts Council loves putting on

Sounds of the Season for obvious reasons—

showcasing local talent, providing a quality

performance, etc.—but we especially love offering

an opportunity to sit down for an

hour or so and allowing people to simply

enjoy. Our hope is that you leave Sounds of

the Season ready to welcome Christmas

with a full heart and a renewed spirit.”

This year’s show is set for 7 p.m. Dec. 16

at London First United Methodist Church,

52 N. Main St. Admission is free. Donations

will be accepted at the door.

Several area performers auditioned to be

part of the 2018 line-up. The result is 20

acts, ranging from soloists to ensembles performing

Lighten up at West Jeff’s Christmas in the Park

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

West Jefferson’s signature Christmas

celebration, now in its 23rd year, is poised

to sparkle just as brightly as ever.

For weeks, volunteers have been testing

and hanging hundreds of strands of lights

in the trees at Garrette Park. On Dec. 14,

Santa will flip a switch to bring 400,000

twinkling lights to life and signal the start

of Christmas in the Park.

Three days of carriage rides, Santa visits,

live music, food, and children’s activities are

planned, along with a lighted parade, house

decorating contest, and toy giveaway.

Once the weekend festivities are over,

the park will remain lit from 6 to 10 p.m.

nightly through Jan. 1.

Highlights of opening weekend, Dec. 14-

16, are as follows:

Parade of Lights

Anyone can participate in the parade of

lights on Dec. 15. All entries should include

lighting of some kind. Line-up starts at 4:30

p.m. in the American Legion parking lot,

9701 W. Broad St. The parade steps off at

5:30 and travels into West Jefferson, continuing

on Main Street to South Twin Street,

then left onto Fellows Avenue and right into

Garrette Park. For more information, call

Sandy Boucher at (614) 879-9662.

Pictures with Santa and Toy Giveaway

Santa will be available all weekend to

hear children’s Christmas wishes in the

Santa House and pose for photos. Bring

your own camera and take as many photos

as you like, or take advantage of the on-site

photographer. The first photo is free; additional

photos are $3 each, with a limit of

three photos.

Skip the wait in line to see Santa by leaving

your name and phone number at the

Santa House when you arrive at the park.

Organizers will send a text when it’s your

turn to visit Santa.

On Dec. 16, event organizers will give

tickets to children ages 12 and younger for

a toy giveaway. Toy distribution will start

at 8 p.m. Entrants (or their parents) must

be present at the drawing to win.

Craft Station, Stories & Carriage Rides

Children are invited to visit the Gingerbread

House to make a variety of crafts

throughout the weekend, and each night,

volunteers will read Christmas-themed stories

in the Santa House.

Teachers from the West Jefferson middle

school and high school will man the horse

and carriage ride station. Skip the wait in

line for a ride by leaving your name and

phone number with organizers when you arrive

at the park. They will send a text when

it’s your turn to ride.

Home Decorating Contest

In conjunction with Christmas in the

Park, the West Jefferson Community Association

holds a home decorating contest.

Residents of the village of West Jefferson

and Jefferson Township are eligible to

Judging will take place Dec. 11-14. Entrants

must leave their lights on from 6 to 9

p.m. those nights. Winners will be notified

on Dec. 16; cash prizes will be presented at

8 p.m.

Two special categories are offered this

year: “Clark Grizwold,” which looks for excessive

use of lighting and decoration; and

“Norman Rockwell”, which looks for more

traditional, nostalgic decoration.

For more information about any part of

the event, go to wjchristmaspark.org.

Donations

Christmas in the Park is an all-volunteer

organization. Donations help to offset the

cost of replacement lights, electricity and

other expenses. Make donations out to

“Christmas in the Park” and mail to P.O.

Box 262, West Jefferson, OH 43162.

Directions to Garrette Park

Journey to West Jefferson via Route 40.

Once in downtown, turn south on Walnut

one year immediately preceding the filing of the adoption petition or the placement of the

minor in the home of the petitioner.

to January 1, 1997).

BILITIES, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO CONTACT THE MINOR, AND, EXCEPT WITH RESPECT TO A SPOUSE OF THE

ADOPTION PETITIONER AND RELATIVES O THAT SPOUSE, TERMINATE ALL LEGAL RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN

THE MINOR AND YOU AND THE MINOR’S OTHER RELATIVES, SO THAT THE MINOR THEREAFTER IS A STRANGER

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

YOU MUST FILE AN OBJECTION TO THE PETITION WITHIN FOURTEEN DAYS AFTER PROOF OF SERVICE OF

NOTICE OF THE FILING OF THE PETITION AND OF THE TIME AND PLACE OF HEARING IS GIVEN TO YOU, IF YOU

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