Electric car

By Andrea Cordle

Southwest Editor

Should the city contribute funds for residents

to keep electric vehicle charging stations

in their garages? That was the question

city leaders could not agree on.

At the Dec. 3 meeting, Grove City

Council postponed legislation that would

appropriate $25,000 from the general fund

Times of heavy rain may have put a

damper on Grove City’s annual

Christmas Celebration, yet the community

made sure the festivities were not a

complete wash by braving the inclement

weather to take part in the day-long

event. Shown here is a collection of

scenes captured on Dec. 1.

GRANT PROGRAM

Continued from page 1

for the electric vehicle charging station

grant program.

The goal of the program is to encourage

more residents to drive electric vehicles

and create a greener environment in the

city.

“We are trying to remove a barrier to

start a new habit,” said councilman Ted

Berry.

Berry, who drives an electric vehicle,

said the cars require no gas, release no

tailpipe emissions and cost less money to

drive and operate. The only drawback is

the convenience in charging the vehicle.

According to Berry, it can take several

hours to fully charge the vehicle and it can

be difficult to do that in a public setting.

“The barrier is at the home,” said Berry.

When the grant program was first introduced

in October, it included funding for

businesses to install the charging stations

as well as the individual. Council amended

the legislation to only include individuals.

Council dropped the commercial aspect

from the program because business owners

already have incentives through other entities,

like American Electric Power.

According to the legislation, residents

could be reimbursed at a rate of $500 for

the approved installation of a charging station.

A maximum of $4,000 per multi-family

location would be granted for any one

parcel.

If approved, Grove City would be the

first in Ohio to offer such a program.

“This would put Grove City on the map

for clean fuels,” said Berry.

Councilman Roby Schottke supports the

program and said it could go even further

in promoting a positive environmental

impact. He suggested subsidizing funds for

residents to install solar panels.

The event will be held Dec. 16 at 11:15 a.m.

in the church’s sanctuary. Admission is

free.

Art Show at Harmon

The PTA Reflections Art Show will be

held from 6-8 p.m. Jan. 10 at Harmon

Elementary School, 1861 Gantz Road in

Grove City.

Fresh produce at Central Baptist

Free fresh fruit and vegetables will be

distributed on Jan. 12 to qualified, lowincome

Franklin County residents. The

fresh produce will be available at Central

Baptist Church, 1955 Frank Road, beginning

at 10:30 a.m. To assist in registration,

bring a photo ID and your current address

in Franklin County. You are asked to also

bring heavy-duty bags, boxes or carts to

carry the bulk produce home. For additional

information, contact the church office at

614-279-3115 or visit www.centralbaptistcolumbus.org.

“This is a very positive step,” said

Schottke.

The other council members were not

quite on board.

Christine Houk said she is not convinced

that using public money for something

that sits in someone’s garage is a

good idea.

“We can make a better choice for

$25,000,” said Houk.

Councilman Jeff Davis questioned if this

was a role government should play.

“What should we do with taxpayer dollars,”

he asked.

Berry said this program was no different

than other city programs, like the Town

Center grant program where the city gives

grant money to business owners to make

repairs on their property.

Grove City Mayor Richard “Ike” Stage

said it is no different than what the city

spends on the annual Eco Fest event.

“Grove City is willing to bet money that

we can and will make a difference,” said

Stage.

Linda Rosine, the environmental coordinator

with the city of Grove City spoke at

the meeting in favor of the program.

Rosine said Grove City is part of a Mid-

Ohio Regional Planning Commission

(MORPC) plan to address regional issues

affecting environmental sustainability and

quality of life such as air quality, energy,

local food, water resources, trails, growth

and planning.

Rosine said this charging station grant

program would help address the energy

piece of the plan.

“I am encouraged with this legislation,”

said Rosine.

Council voted to postpone their vote

until the Dec. 17 meeting.

In Education

The presentation of the annual financial review for the South-

Western City Schools District took place at the Dec. 10 board of

education meeting.

According to Treasurer Hugh Garside, the fiscal year 2017/18

saw an increase in revenue, an increase in expenditures and the

projected stability of the district’s financial outlook.

“I would say we’re in good shape financially,” he said.

There was a rise in revenue in fiscal year 2017/18 of 5.4 percent,

which roughly translates to an additional $13.7 million in

the general fund.

Garside said the general fund operation

budget is supported by revenues from real

estate taxes, state funding, property tax

allocations, public utility personal property

tax and other sources.

The largest source of revenue, he said,

comes from the state of Ohio.

“The state accounts for 52.4 percent of

our general fund revenue source.”

Garside said the allocation is determined

on a per pupil basis, and reiterated that the

district is considered a capped district per

the state funding allocation formula. Upon

presenting the five-year forecast in both

May and October, Garside said the district

would receive an additional $11 million in

funding if they were removed from the

capped district classification.

Treasurer says district is in good shape

Historical Society

Help preserve the history of Grove City,

Urbancrest and Jackson, Pleasant. Prairie and

Franklin townships. The Southwest Franklin County

Historical Society meets the first Tuesday each month

at 7:30 p.m. at St. John’s Lutheran Church, 3220

Columbus St. For information, pick-up a society

brochure at the Grove City Welcome Center, 3378

Park St.

Garside said another reason for the increase of general fund

revenue had to do with a return on investments.

“Our investments are gaining steam,” he said.

There was an increase of 5.1 percent, or roughly $11.9 million,

in expenditures for fiscal year 2017/18.

He said the increase was primarily due to additional staffing

and an increase in gas prices.

He added that of the expenditures, 66 cents out of every dollar

is devoted to instructional activities, and 7 cents out of every dollar

is spent for instructional support.

“We are spending 73 cents out of every dollar on instructional

support, which means it is going directly into the classroom.”

He also said the capital projects fund is going to be seeing “a lot

of activity” due to the recent passage of Issue 7, which allows for

the construction of new middle schools, the renovation of an additional

middle and elementary school, and upgrades and/or paving

to several others.

Garside told that board that the district is stable financially

and should continue to be so well into 2023.

“I can see no need for an operating levy currently.”

In other news, Kevin Scott, the classified personnel director,

presented a draft of the school year for calendar years 2019/2020

and 2020/21. According to the draft, the 2019 school year will

begin Aug. 21 with an end date of May 28. The following year’s

start date will be Aug. 26 with an end date of June 4. The board

will likely hold a vote for the calendar year approval at its Jan. 28

meeting.

The board of education will hold its tax budget hearing for fiscal

year 2019/2020 Jan. 7 at 6:45 p.m. Immediately following, the

board will hold its organizational meeting and then regular meeting

starting at 7 p.m.

“A Christmas Story” experience

Places - By Linda Dillman

The “A Christmas Story House” in

Cleveland is a wonderful holiday destination,

especially if it happens to be the midpoint

in your first experience in participating

in a 10K run.

Make that the first time ever participating

in any kind of organized running event.

That was me on Dec. 1 when I donned a

full-length elf costume, laced up my 5-yearold

pink athletic shoes and joined thousands

of others in downtown Cleveland for

a race taking us from the former Higbee’s

department store to the famed “A

Christmas Story” movie location in the

Tremont neighborhood.

I am not a runner, although I am a

swimmer and jogger. I routinely walk three

miles with my dog on the weekends.

When it came time to decide whether to

participate in the “A Christmas Story

House” 10K/5K, I decided to go for broke

and marked the 10K box. After all, my 62-

year-old body was used to working out and

three more miles seemed more of a challenge

than an insurmountable hurdle.

My daughter - who participates in

marathons - my two granddaughters and I

stood at the starting point under cloudy

skies and 37 degree temperatures along

with a group of fun runners, weekend warriors,

elite athletes and a bevy of dogs.

Many of the participants were in costume

ranging from the off-the-shelf onesie

I wore, to handmade costumes honoring

movie moments, such as a group of black

and white-striped pseudo criminals, a

trench-coated Ralphie wannabe, “fragile”

boxes, angry elves, a smattering of Santas

and two women wearing faux plates of

meatloaf and mashed potatoes.

If you are familiar with the “ A

Christmas Story” film, you will recognize

the costumes from key scenes. If not, you

really are missing out on a movie that is a

timeless holiday classic. Turn your television

to TBS anytime on Christmas and

watch it - the movie is on a 24-hour cycle on

Dec. 25.

A message of thanks

from the Lions Club

The Grove City Lions Club wish to

thank all who supported our recent pancake

breakfast. This charitable fundraiser

enabled our club to provide funds for our

sight saving projects and to Pilot Dogs, Inc

for their use in training guide dogs for the

blind. The financial support of those

attending made this event a success.

Three miles to go at the 10K mid-way point at the Christmas Story House in Cleveland.

The 10K run stepped off at 9 a.m. and it

took my daughter and me five minutes to

make it to the starting point. Once I

crossed that electronic line, I was committed.

My daughter bid me farewell - she runs

a 12 minute or less mile and I hover around

17 minutes - and took off as I jogged and

walked my way across a windy bridge and

through old neighborhoods to the midway

point.

Many people participated in the 5K,

which ended directly in front of the “A

Christmas Story House.” I was diverted

away from the yellow-sided house and back

downtown to the end of the run.

At the start, I was surrounded by thousands

of people and pets, but once I made

that left turn away from the house, the

crowd dramatically thinned out and there

were long expanses of roadway with only

one or two people ahead of me.

As I jogged and walked - very fast,

remember? - I enjoyed seeing the sights

and architecture of a city with a vibrant

core. Up ahead, I knew my daughter and

granddaughters were waiting for me.

I rounded a corner and ahead of me was

the finish line with its electronic timer ticking

away the seconds. I was determined to

finish in under an hour and 45 minutes

and I crossed the line at 1:44:56.

Race volunteers handed out red-ribboned

medals and I happily accepted mine

as my family rushed out and hugged me.

My first response was, “I did it.”

Elite runners, those who were already

on their way back to the finish line when I

was still more than a mile away from the

mid-point, will not be impressed with my

time, but for me, it was all about being able

to finish a challenge I gave myself.

And the “A Christmas Story House” was

a great carrot to get me to participate in

the annual event. It is a wonderful day-trip

destination. The house, which served as

the family home location for the movie, is

outfitted in a perpetual holiday celebration.

Looking for the Red Ryder BB gun? It’s

behind the tree. A bar of Lifebuoy hangs in

the bathroom and you can pretend to “eat

like a piggy” in the 1940s-era kitchen.

Across the street is a museum that pays

homage to the movie, its cast and creator.

You can even buy your own leg lamp in a

Wellness

on Wheels

By Dedra Cordle

Staff Writer

Some bad habits can start to form early

in life.

“The behavior and choices that we make

as adults can often be traced back to what

we saw or experienced in childhood,” said

Dr. Bernadette Melnyk, the chief wellness

officer and the dean of the college of nursing

at the Ohio State University. “Our families

have such an impact on our lives and

what we do.”

But not all of the bad habits that we

may learn in childhood, she added, have to

stay with us.

“We have the power to change how we

live our lives,” she said. “It doesn’t matter

how old we are when we start that change.

What matters is that we are taking the

power to make a change.”

Having worked in the health care field

for more than three decades, Melnyk

knows the impact education can have on

an individual’s life.

“The more knowledge we have, the better

choices we make,” she said.

It was that knowledge, she says, that

prompted her to start a travelling health

and wellness fair.

Four years ago, Melnyk began thinking

of ways that health care professionals at

the university could reach communities

throughout the state that may not have

access, affordable or otherwise, to health

screenings, examinations and resources.

Upon brainstorming, she said, the idea

came to her - a health tour that is comprised

of a variety of health care fields at

the university.

“As a land grant school, I believe it is

our responsibility to make a positive

impact in communities throughout the

state, not just in our neighboring area,”

she said. “We have to pay it forward.”

Melnyk began reaching out to the deans

of a numbers of colleges at the university

to see if their students would be willing to

participate in this tour as part of their clinical

experience.

Gage Keaton, a senior at the college of

nursing, said participating in this tour was

one of the things he looked forward to.

“It gives us real world experience where

we are able to engage with the community

that we will be serving,” he said.

When the tour, which is called Wellness

on Wheels, hit the road in 2014, they primarily

parked in more rural communities

but Melnyk thought it was important to

branch out this year.

“I wanted the focus to be on students,”

she said. “I think it is vital that they learn

Messenger photo by Dedra Cordle

Gage Keaton, a senior at Ohio State’s College of Nursing, takes the blood pressure of Grove City High School freshman Joseph

Borror. Keaton, along with 30 other undergraduate and postgraduate students from various health care fields at the university, came

to the high school on Nov. 30 as part of a health and wellness tour that provides a number of free examinations and assessments.

about healthy lifestyle choices and healthy

coping skills during this phase in their

lives.

“So many young adults, I have seen,

make poor choices and have no idea how to

cope with stress or know how to address

their mental health issues,” she said.

“Many children are struggling with mental

health issues but there is still such a stigma

around it.”

She said she knew right away that mental

health professionals must be available

at all of their stops, particularly at the

schools.

This year, Wellness on Wheels had visited

schools in Chillicothe and Waverly and

have recently made their first stop in the

Columbus area.

On Nov. 30, undergraduate and postgraduate

students set up stations throughout

the library at Grove City High School

and filled the tables with medical equipment,

assessment tests, fact sheets and

brochures for additional information and

resources.

School nurse Jodi Smelko-Schneider

said she was amazed when she saw all of

the resources that were available for the

students taking a health class this semester.

“When they contacted me about this

program a few months ago,” she said, “I

thought it was a great idea but I couldn’t

exactly picture it in my mind. I thought it

would just be a few tables set out with

papers and there would be limited handson

interactions but I am just blown away

by what this program is offering.

“Unfortunately, we as a school and district

are limited in what screenings we can

offer to our students, but I know with this

tour being here some students will have

the opportunity to be screened for health

issues they would not have until they were

older, if at all.”

Health teacher Linda Conti said she too

was impressed by the tour.

“When Jodi told me about this a month

ago, I wasn’t sure the students would be

engaged or willing to participate,” she said.

“But as you look around you see our kids

getting examinations, talking with the university

students and showing a greater

interest in their health.”

She also said it was wonderful to see

screenings about topics they have touched

upon in class, but would have loved to have

seen a table from the university’s division

of dermatology.

“We are going through a unit on skin

and I wished they would have had one of

those (skin imaging devices),” she said. “It

has actually inspired me to look at grant

opportunities that may be out there.”

The university students stayed at the

high school all day, offering dental examinations,

mental health screenings, biometrics,

food nutrition tips and strength and

flexibility assessments.

But not all news was good news at the

fair. Several students learned they had

cavities — Dr. Sid Kannan stressed the

importance of proper hygiene — and some

learned they were not as tall as they were

led to believe.

“I always thought I was 5’9” but they

told me I was 5’8”,” said senior Josh Castle

with a sigh. “I was disappointed when I

heard that but all together I think this program

is pretty cool. It’s exciting to learn

about your body, your health and what you

can do to improve your life.”

Currently, there are no plans for the

Wellness on Wheels tour to become a yearly

fixture at the school or in the district,

but Principal Bryan O’Shea said he would

love to have them come back.

“It’s a wonderful program that is a true

benefit to our students,” he said. “I wish

they all would have been able to experience

it.”

If schools wish to inquire about hosting

Wellness on Wheels, Dr. Bernadette

Melnyk said staff or administrators can

email her at Melnyk15@osu.edu.

By Dedra Cordle

Staff Writer

Officials in the village of Urbancrest

debated mayoral appointments and the use

of declaring emergencies on agenda items

at the Dec. 11 council meeting.

The debate was sparked when councilwoman

Deborah Larkins-Jackson voted

against the appointment of Rodd S.

Lawrence to the position of law director for

the 2019 year, which was then followed by

councilwoman Alicia Wiggins asking about

the placement of “and to declare an emergency”

at the end of the resolution.

“Why are we doing this as an emergency

again?” she asked. “We do this every year.”

The problem, she said, with the use of

declaring emergencies is the frequency in

which they are used on agenda items.

“I think it is bad practice,” she said.

She said she also had an issue with how

they are used at the end of the year when

mayoral appointments are voted upon,

such as for the law director.

“We need to be given time to debate

these things,” Wiggins said.

She suggested that there should be

three readings held for mayoral appointments

as they do with ordinances.

Mayor Joseph Barnes Sr. said the

appointments are done by emergency and

held at the end of the year for a number of

the reasons. The primary reason they are

done at that time, he said, is due to the timing

of evaluations.

December is when I review their body

of work for the year and then make that

recommendation to reappoint or not,” he

said.

Several council members questioned

that practice, and village secretary Elberta

Barnes reminded them that the timing of

official appointment evaluations were set

forth by council.

“You make the laws,” she said.

The second reason Barnes stated as to

why the use of ‘and to declare an emergency’

was used is because the Ohio

Revised Code stipulates that it can only be

used when the ‘health, safety or welfare of

the community’ is at risk.

He said in reference to the appointment

of Lawrence, and then later in regards to

the appointment of code enforcement officer

Randall Bogue, that ‘and to declare an

emergency’ meets the criteria.

“The village is going through a few legal

matters at this time,” he said. “They have

the expertise to see us get through this.”

He said that there are outside factors at

play, namely industrial or commercial

developers, who would try to “overrun the

village if they could.”

“We have to have safeguards in place to

protect the village,” Barnes said.

Another reason Barnes stated for placing

the declaration of emergency on his

www.columbusmessenger.com

Government Focus

Appointments and emergency

measures debated in village

end-of-year appointments is due to what he

says are past inappropriate interactions by

some council members.

“There have been instances where I

state my intentions to appoint an individual

and they bully and brow-beat (that person)

in order to get them to do what they

want.”

He said putting the potential appointee

on the agenda at the end of the year puts a

stop to these tactics.

Councilman Steven Larkins, who was

elected in 2017, said he knows nothing of

that behavior and does not condone it. But

he said he too was troubled by the use of

declaring emergencies.

“When (that language) is on there, it

feels like our backs are to the wall all the

time,” he said. “But I do trust that the

mayor is not going to put anyone into place

who can’t do the job.”

He stated his support for Lawrence as

he expressed his worry for those outside

factors Barnes discussed during the

debate.

“Many people don’t know how valuable

the land is in Urbancrest,” he said, citing

space and access to major interstates as

some examples.

“People want to build here and now we

got semi-trucks running up and down the

streets.”

Lawrence said he has confidence that

having a law director in place, especially

one that has prior knowledge of village

rules, regulations and litigation, would be

an asset to the community.

Councilman S. Henry Warr agreed.

“What are we going to do? Vote him out?

Who’s going to do the job?” he asked. “Me?

You? Somebody in the audience? I think

not.”

Wiggins said the discussion regarding

Lawrence’s continued employment in the

village was not personal, but she remains

concerned about the continued use of emergencies

to approve mayoral appointments

and on agenda items.

“We need to be allowed to ask questions,”

she said.

Larkins-Jackson said she just wanted

the process to be “better.”

During the official vote to appoint

Lawrence, Larkins-Jackson rescinded her

no vote, and the other four also voted in

favor. Councilwoman Shawn Moore was

absent from the meeting.

Relatedly, the council voted to change

the resolution to appoint Bogue as the code

enforcement officer for the 2019 year to a

first reading; they voted for the appointment

of Edward Banks to the position of

street commissioner; and they voted to

change the resolution approved last month

to vacate several right-of-ways to an ordinance.

The latter of the two items were

passed as an emergency.

Southeast Editor

People on Ohio farms in the 1880s lived

a frugal lifestyle that embraced recycling

in a more in-depth way than we do today.

According to information provided by

Metro Parks Slate Run Living Historical

Farm, located at 1375 State Route 674

North, Canal Winchester, a 19th century

saying sums up our ancestors’ outlook:

“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

Make it do, or do without

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

used to add flavor to the smoked meat.

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 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.

“It’s interesting to look back and see

what lengths our ancestors could, and

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

Brooks.

In Entertainment

“e Grinch” is a holiday delight

December is a great, if slightly overwhelming,

time to see a movie at the local

theater. Each weekend typically offers a

slew of new releases for those looking for

an escapist treat, but there are times when

the schedule aligns just so that there is a

little lull in between the storms. This pause

can be a great thing for regular moviegoers

as it gives them a chance to catch up,

or just catch their breath before another

onslaught, and that no new release lull just

happened to occur this past weekend. And

as this past weekend was my review week,

I didn’t necessarily appreciate the timing

as much as others may have.

To compensate for the lack of new offerings,

I decided that it would be best to see

something that was a: seasonal, b: still

making money, c: not too old, d: not too long

and e: fit my mood at the time. That unscientific

criteria led me to “The Grinch,” yet

another reboot of a classic feature.

For more than 50 years, Dr. Seuss’ “How

the Grinch Stole Christmas’” has been a

staple come this time of year. We’ve read

the book so much we can recite it with our

eyes closed, we’ve watched the 1966 feature

as many times as we have “A Christmas

Story,” we’ve sung the catchy song so much

it comes to us in dreams, and we’ve forked

The Reel Deal

Dedra Cordle

over cash for pajama sets because we adore

the foul, green creature so much. Or was

the latter just me? Anyway, discounting

the abomination that was the live-action

film, this tale has been told many times

before yet here we are with another

retelling because movie studios do not like

to take risks.

This Grinch follows the story of previous

iterations but with a modernization that

largely works. It begins via narration by

Pharrell Williams, an odd choice, who

introduces (or reintroduces) us to the foul,

green creature whose heart is two sizes too

small. Voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch,

Mr. Grinch hates everything, especially

Christmas-time in the village. Though he

lives way up top on Mount Crumpit, he is

blinded and annoyed by the sights far

below.

Nestled in-between the mountains is the

town of Whoville, a place filled with very

nice people who just happen to love this

season so much. As in years past, the hills

are alive with the sound of music, and

lights adorn nearly every square inch of the

town. But as a way to spice up the events of

years past, they have decided to make the

celebration three times as large.

This, of course, infuriates our antagonist,

who just wants them all to shut up

and keep the lights off. It’s not quite an

unreasonable request, yet he goes about it

all wrong.

Upon deciding that this year is finally

the year to put an end to Christmas time in

the village, Mr. Grinch and his loyal companion

Max plot to steal all the decorations,

presents, cookies and joy from this

holiday. The only problem is the Santa-clad

Grinch just happens to run into Cindy Lou

Who (voiced by Cameron Steely), a young

girl who is determined to capture Santa in

order to make her Christmas wish come

true.

The modernization of this retelling

revolves around a young Grinch and the

family of Cindy Lou Who. In this version,

the Grinch hates Christmas because of its

lack of growing up, and Cindy Lou Who

just wants her overworked, single mother

to be happy. While the latter works more

than the former, the fleshed out backstories

add to the richness of this particular

tale. Whether you accept it as true Grinch

lore, however, depends on how flexible you

are about the classic feature.

Overall, “The Grinch” is a cute adaptation

that is a visual delight. Though the

animation of Mr. Grinch and his softer features

may be a little

jarring at first, the

style featured in this

film add a lushness

with the realistic

snow-covered mountains,

the lights

gleaming from the

houses and trees and the sweets left out for

Santa. Those were so well crafted it actually

made you want to reach out and grab one

of them.

While I had some misgivings about this

film, (due in large part to rebooting

fatigue), I have to say that it is a funny and

sweet adaptation that I’m sure everyone in

the family would be able to enjoy. So,

should you find yourself wishing for a

respite this season — let’s say you’re feeling

a tad Grinchy — maybe carve out some time

and give this film a try. Grade: B+

Student art on exhibit

Art created by students at Grove City

High School is featured in a new art show

at the Casino District Branch of Pathways

Financial Credit Union in December and

January.

The art show is displayed on Pathways’

Community Wall and inside the lobby and

is open to the public at 750 Georgesville

Road in Columbus during business hours

on weekdays and Saturdays. The collection

includes 10 works of art from students

under the direction of Grove City High

School art instructors Brian Bosworth,

Hannah Mayle and Suzanne Moore. The

pieces include paintings, digital art, photography

and ceramics.

All visitors can vote on their favorite

piece as Best in Show in the credit union

lobby until Jan. 15. The winning artist will

receive a Visa gift card from Pathways. The

credit union is also making a donation to

the school’s art department to help instructors

encourage and develop young artists.

“Our Community Wall provides us with

a perfect space to show the talents of our

local student artists,” said Branch

Manager Chad Fields. “We have served the

southwest area community since 1954 and

everyone here is excited to showcase the

talents of the Greyhounds’ art program on

our Community Wall. ”
