2019 Madison County Fair

Nashville

acts, rodeo,

dinosaurs

At least two Nashville acts with songs

in the Top 10 on the country music charts

will perform at this year’s Madison

County Fair. Who are they? Time will tell.

“We’re still waiting on signed contracts.

We will announce the artists in

March,” said Bob Richardson, fairgrounds

manager.

The concert is slated for Sunday, July

7, the first night of the 2019 fair. This year’s fair dates are July

7-13. Richardson said that in addition to the two acts slated for

the evening concert, the fair board might contract with other acts

to perform earlier in the day.

He said the senior fair board is making a “huge investment” in

the musical entertainment for the fair. With the announcement

of the artists in March, the board also will announce concert sponsors

and start selling advance tickets.

At their January meeting, the board firmed up other fair week

entertainment, including two new attractions—Broken Horn

Rodeo on Wednesday, July 9, and Dino-ROAR Ohio Tuesdaymadison

Broken Horn Rodeo, based in Ripley, Ohio, will bring seven

events, from steer wrestling to bull riding, to this year’s Madison

County Fair.

Children and adults alike can get up close and personal with dinosaurs during Dino-

ROAR Ohio shows at this year’s Madison County Fair.

Thursday, July 8-10.

“We’re bringing back a rodeo because we have had a lot of inquiries

and interest,” Richardson said. “Broken Horn comes highly

recommended. They’ve been in business for nearly 30 years.”

The fair has been without a rodeo attraction for a few years.

The company the fair used in the past would put on two or three

events. In contrast, Broken Horn puts on a full rodeo featuring

seven events—saddle bronc riding, bareback horse riding, steer

wrestling, tie-down calf roping, barrel racing, team roping and

bull riding.

“We’re a professional rodeo with professional cowboys,” said

owner Jim McElroy. “We also welcome some local amateur cowboys

to keep the community involved.”

Based in Ripley, Ohio, southeast of Cincinnati, McElroy and

his wife, Sandra, started Broken Horn in 1991. It is the largest

and busiest rodeo company in the International Professional

Rodeo Association. In Ohio alone, the company will put on 16

rodeos this year.

“We’ll probably have cowboys from all over the United States

at the Madison County Fair rodeo,” McElroy said, adding that

Broken Horn carries some of the best stock in the country.

Animals of another kind are the stars of Dino-ROAR, an educational

show about dinosaurs. The Belpre, Ohio, company will

present three one-hour shows daily, Tuesday-Thursday of the fair.

Owners J.D. and Leann Nicolais and their crew use hand puppets,

body suits, and animatronics to teach audiences about all

kinds of dinosaurs. Children and adults are invited to pet, interact

with, and have their pictures taken with the dinosaurs, which

range in size from three feet long to a 15-foot long, ridable Tyrannosaurus

Rex.

Tempers flared at the Jan. 14 Mount

Sterling village council meeting, resulting

in one council member walking out of the

meeting.

The night got off to a rocky start when

council members argued about whether to

start the meeting with a prayer.

“In order to change the format of the

meeting, there should be an amendment to

change the rules of council,” said Rebecca

Burns, council member. “I was surprised we

weren’t presented with this because the format

of the meetings has changed.”

Some council members said they were

not comfortable with including prayer in a

public meeting.

“I want to make sure there is a separation

between church and state,” said Tom

Ward, council member. “I am not comfortable

participating in this and will excuse

myself.”

Burns, Ward and Tammy Vansickle

voted against starting the meeting with a

prayer, while Lowell Anderson, Becky Martin

and David Timmons voted for it. Mayor

Billy Martin broke the tie, voting in favor of

including a prayer.

Ward excused himself from the meeting

during the prayer.

Afterwards, Misty Vance, the village

utilities clerk, addressed council about accusations

made against her at a previous

council meeting.

“I was not in attendance at the last meeting

and there were a few comments made

about me that I would like to address,”

Vance said. “One of the comments was a

question from council member Tammy Vansickle’s

husband about overtime being paid

West Jeff speller wins bee with ‘incredulous’

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

The 250-some spectators at the Madison

County Spelling Bee abided by the one rule

set out for them at the start of the oral spelldown:

Feel free to spell along with the contestants,

but do so silently.

So, as the 31 students who made the cut

approached the podium one by one in hopes

of stringing together letters in the right

order, the only sounds besides their voices

and those of the pronouncers were the occasional

baby’s babble and the audience’s collective,

sympathetic groan when a speller’s

try was judged to be incorrect.

As can be expected, many of the words

thrown at the contestants were doozies, like:

* ostentatious—attracting attention, admiration

or envy, often by gaudiness or obviousness;

*maladroit—inept;

*kovsh—a traditional drinking vessel or

ladle from Russia; and

*pitchblende—a chief mineral source for

uranium.

Jacob Cameron, a seventh-grader from

Canaan Middle School, broke some of the

tension in the room when, upon being given

“sarcasm,” he declared, “Gee, I love this

word,” then proceeded to spell it correctly.

The spelldown went 10 rounds and covered

114 words before Nathan Peters, an

eighth-grader from West Jefferson Middle

School emerged victorious. He correctly

spelled “kirtle” (a man’s tunic), then “incredulous”

(unwilling to admit or accept what is

offered as true) to take the title.

Peters has competed in the spelling bee

for the past four years. This is his first win.

His previous best performance was third

place as a fifth-grader.

Sixth-grader Wyatt Keyt, also from West

Jefferson Middle School, was the runner-up.

The spelling bee was held Jan. 15 at

Tolles Career and Technical Center in Plain

City. Students in fifth- through eighthgrade

competed. They hailed from Jonathan

Alder Local Schools, Madison-Plains Local

Schools, Jefferson Local Schools and Shekinah

Christian School.

More than 70 students first took the

written test. The top scorers from each

grade then moved on to the oral spelldown.

The top finishers by grade level on the

written test were:

* Fifth grade—Chloe Wilson, Canaan

Middle School;

* Sixth grade (tie)—Ross Gerckens,

Canaan Middle School, and Addison

Hawkins, Madison-Plains Middle School;

* Seventh grade—Matt Hirshberg,

Jonathan Alder Junior High School; and

* Eighth grade—Nathan Peters.

The top finishers by grade level in the

oral spelldown were:

* Fifth grade—Tammy Kindrick, Canaan

Middle School;

* Sixth grade—Wyatt Keyt;

* Seventh grade—Jacob Cameron; and

* Eighth grade—Nathan Peters.

Pronouncers for the event were Joseph

Galore and Karen Grigsby. Judges were

Kathleen Chrysler, Jennifer Merb, Libby

Heinig and Brad Miller.

FAIR

Continued from page 1

Additionally, Dino-ROAR, in business for three years, offers a

fossil tent. Between the show and the tent, visitors learn fun facts

like: all female dinosaurs were larger than their male counterparts,

and all dinosaurs came from eggs that were up to eight inches long.

“It’s one of the coolest, interactive things I’ve seen,” Richardson

said of the show.

Additional entertainment set for this year’s fair includes returning

attractions. KOI dirt drag racing is back on Monday night.

Truck and tractor pulls return on Tuesday night and Friday night,

respectively. Fast Traxx motocross is back on Thursday night. And

in keeping with tradition, the Smash-It demolition derby rounds

out the week on Saturday, the last day of the fair.

“We’ll be announcing some more entertainment later on,”

Richardson added.

What’s up for election and how to file for candidacy

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

The deadline to file as a candidate in the

May 7 primary election is 4 p.m. Feb. 6.

In Madison County, the positions up for

election are the mayor’s seat in West Jefferson

and most of the elected seats for the city

of London. The positions must be contested

in order for a primary to take place; the

guidelines are different between West Jefferson

and London.

For a primary election to take place for

the West Jefferson mayor’s seat, at least

three candidates must gather signatures

and file with the Madison County Board of

Elections. If two or fewer file, no primary

will be held. The position is non-partisan.

The term is for four years.

Individuals interested in running for the

West Jefferson mayor’s seat have two options.

To have their name appear on the ballot,

they must secure at least 25 valid

signatures from registered voters in West

Jefferson and file the petitions with the

Board of Elections by Feb. 6.

Or, they can file as write-in candidates.

Write-ins are not required to collect signatures;

their names do not appear on the ballot.

The deadline to file as a write-in is 4

p.m. Feb. 25. At least three candidates who

collect signatures must file before write-in

candidates will be included on the ballot.

The filing fee for West Jefferson mayoral

candidates is $30. If a primary takes place,

the top two vote-getters move on to the November

general election.

For a primary election to take place in

London, at least two candidates must file for

a seat. Among the seats up for election are

auditor, law director, council president,

mayor, and three at-large council seats.

Major party candidates for these seats must

collect at least 50 valid signatures. Minor

party candidates must collect at least 25

valid signatures. The petitions are due to

the Board of Elections by Feb. 6.

Independent candidates for these seats

will not run in the primary election. Their

names will appear on the November ballot.

They must collect at least 25 valid signatures

and submit petitions by 4 p.m. May 6.

All four council ward seats also are up for

election. Major party candidates must collect

at least 25 valid signatures; minor party

candidates must collect at least 13 valid signatures.

The petitions are due to the Board

of Elections by Feb. 6.

Engineer taking on more bike path maintenance

Independent candidates for the ward

seats will not run in the primary election.

Their names will appear on the November

ballot. Independent candidates for the the

Ward 1, 2 and 4 seats must collect 25 signatures;

independent candidates for the Ward

3 seat must collect 19 signatures. Petitions

are due by May 6.

The filing fee for London city government

seats is $45.

There is no option for write-in candidates

in the London primary election.

The London auditor, law director and

mayor seats are four-year terms. All other

city seats are two-year terms.

The Madison County Park District is taking

bike path mowing duties in-house.

Currently, the district contracts with a

local company to mow grass along 10.5 miles

of the Ohio To Erie Trail that run through

Madison County (primarily London). The

path is known locally as the Prairie Grass

Trail and the Roberts Pass Trail.

Madison County Engineer Bryan

Dhume, whose office oversees maintenance

of the trail, proposed to the Madison County

commissioners on Jan. 15 that his office

take over the mowing. He said his office

could be more responsive.

He proposed hiring a part-time employee

to mow along the trail, at the two trailheads

to me. I am not paid overtime, and several

council members here could have stated

that because they approve my time, including

Tammy.”

Vance also addressed an accusation by

Ron Vansickle that insinuated she and

Mayor Martin were engaging in in appropriate

activities. At the last council meeting,

Ron Vansickle asked the mayor why he

worked late hours with Vance.

At the Jan. 14 meeting, Tammy Vansickle

said she would not take a stand on

comments her family members made.

“I’m not defending or criticizing a family

member,” Vansickle said. “I am not going to

address comments a family member said

and will abstain from that conversation.”

Vance said Vansickle’s duties as a council

member should include clarifying information

she knows is false, referring to the overtime

pay accusation.

“It is your job to divulge information to

the public and offer explanations for questions,”

Vance said. “I’m not asking you to

speak against a family member, I’m asking

you to do your job. You approve my time

sheets and know I don’t get paid for overtime.”

Also at the meeting, Mayor Martin and

Ward got into a heated exchange related to

complaints from residents about village

staff. Recently, a resident complained that

Vance did not answer their phone calls to

discuss their utility bill.

“I took a complaint from a resident and

gave it to Mayor Martin,” Ward said. “I’m

sick of delivering reports to him and nothing

happening.”

Mayor Martin said it is not council’s responsibility

to try to reprimand employees.

“Council members do not write letters for

my employees and request they are put into

their personnel file,” Martin said. “I write

those letters and decide what goes into employees’

files.”

Ward then walked away from his council

seat.

“Someone needs to stand up for the people,”

Ward said on his way out. “I’ll sit in the

audience for the rest of the meeting and

take the night off.”

located on West High Street and East Center

Street, and to cut weeds around fences.

He also proposed that the work include

mowing at the Little Darby State Scenic

River Preserve, located on Lafayette Plain

City Road, London. (The work would not include

mowing the trail section between

Maple Street and Spring Valley Road, which

is maintained by the city of London.)

Dhume estimates the job will take 24

hours per week, 36 weeks out of the year.

He proposed setting the pay rate at $14 per

hour, which equates to a labor cost of

$12,000 per year. Additional expenses for

equipment use, equipment purchases and

fuel would add another $5,300 in expenses

per year, he said.

Dhume proposed doing the work inhouse

for a year to see how it goes. The commissioners

voted to move forward with termination

of the contracted mowing service.

Dhume said he will advertise for the job

opening.

Pancake Breakfast

In other park district news, the Friends

of the Madison County Parks & Trails

(FMCPT), the volunteer group that helps

with maintenance and development of the

bike path, is once again teaming up with the

Madison County Senior Center to put on a

pancake and sausage breakfast.

The event is set for 7 to 11 a.m. Feb. 9 at

the senior center, 280 W. High St., London.

Adults eat for $6; children 12 and younger

eat for $4. A silent auction will take place

from 7 to 10:45 a.m. Proceeds will be split

between FMCPT and the senior center.

FMCPT welcomes donations of items for

the silent auction and will post photos of the

auction items on its Facebook page.

Water plant repairs come in lower than expected

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

The costs to repair and upgrade the water treatment

plant at London Correctional Institution are coming in

much lower than Madison County officials expected.

Rob Slane, county administrator, reported that

clean-up, repairs and upgrades are estimated to cost

$400,000, instead of the $2 million originally estimated.

“This is very good news,” he said at the Jan. 15

county commissioners meeting.

The county purchased the plant from the Ohio Department

of Corrections in late December for $1. The

county is taking over water and waste water service to

London Correctional, Madison Correctional Institution,

the Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy, and the Ohio

Bureau of Identification and Investigation. The county

also plans to expand the water plant’s service area up

State Route 56 to Summerford, out Route 40 to

Lafayette, and up Route 29 to the I-70 and U.S. Route

42 interchange.

One of the most pressing tasks, Slane said, is cleanup

of the water plant’s lime lagoons. The Environmental

Protection Agency (EPA) said the work needs to be done

as soon as possible.

“The EPA had findings and orders on the lagoons

when the state owned the plant. With the transfer, the

county accepted the findings and orders, so it’s our responsibility

to take care of them,” Slane said.

The commissioners gave Slane approval to hire a local

company to do the work. The cost is $60,000 and is part

of the $400,000 in clean-up, repair and upgrade expenses.

Slane asked the commissioners how they want to pay

for the expenses in the short-term. The county won’t see

revenue from the plant until water payments come due

in February. Among the options he presented were an

allocation from the general fund or a bond or loan

through the county treasurer’s office. The commissioners said “no”

to the general fund allocation, so Slane will talk with county Treasurer

Donna Landis about bond and loan options.

The county also will be paying the city of London approximately

$120,000 per month for waste water treatment services for the new

service area. Before and after waste water payments start coming

in, the county will pay London through its Sewer District 2.

Burr Oaks sewer payments

The county manages waste water services for the Burr Oaks subdivision,

which lies just outside of the Mount Sterling corporation

limits. The county contracts with the village of Mount Sterling for

the services.

Last year, the village increased its water and sewer debt fees to

pay off loans for upgrades to its waste water plant and construction

of its water plant. The county is passing part of the increase along

to customers in Burr Oaks. The previous rate was $14.30 per 1,000

gallons. The new rate is $27.30 per 1,000 gallons. Burr Oaks residents

will see the increase starting with their March bills.

Services for special education students in WJ

By Linda Dillman

Staff Writer

Special education staffers Jennifer Merb and Joe

Gatore shared department programming and statistics

at the Jan. 14 Jefferson Local school board meeting.

Merb reported that 281 students in the district, from

pre-school to high school age, are identified as having

various special needs.

“We have 41 students who are new to the district or

newly identified since Aug. 21,” Merb said. “Every year,

we struggle with how many teachers we need, and 41

new students is a lot. That gives us a full roster.”

Merb stated the number of special education students

completing programs at Tolles Career and Technical

Center in Plain City has dropped since the 2016-17

school year when 10 Jefferson Local students finished

programming at the center.

In 2017-18, four district students completed programs

at Tolles. The number stands at three for 2018-

19 after two students returned to the district’s high

school this year.

“We definitely need more of our students to go to

Tolles,” Merb said.

In an effort to familiarize themselves with Tolles,

West Jefferson High School intervention specialists

toured all of the career center’s programs in late September.

They met with students on Nov. 4 to discuss

Tolles programs.

As part of the district’s special education transition

service, intervention specialists assess students turning

14 or older for post-education preferences, interests and

needs. The specialists then develop individualized transition

goals for each student.

“They have to think about a job and what they’re

going to do after high school,” Merb said, “including who

they are going to live with.”

Introducing special education students to life skills

useful after high school sometimes includes a trip to

LifeTown, a realistic indoor city designed for children

with special needs.

Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities, the

Madison County Board of Developmental Disabilities,

and Capabilities Ohio also provide transition services.

The agencies help transition students with job training

Individual Education Plan teams may also decide to defer graduation

for students to continue school-age services until their 22nd

Superintendent William Mullett. “We deal with a lot of serious situations.”

Organizational Meeting

Prior to the regular monthly meeting, the board held its annual

organization meeting.

David Harper was named board president and Melissa Adams

was named vice president. Regular board meetings will be held at

7 p.m. on the second Monday of the month at the high school.

Academic Hall of Fame

The London Academic Boosters is seeking nominations for individuals

to be considered for induction into the London Academic

Hall of Fame.

The purpose of the Academic Hall of Fame is to recognize individuals

who have made an important, positive impact on the school,

local community or global community. The individual must have attended

a school in the London City School District, been employed

by the school district, worked as a volunteer in the school district,

or in some other direct way made a significant contribution to the

academic success of the schools in the district or other educational

institutions.

Nominations for the Academic Hall of Fame may be made by

anyone connected to the London community. Nomination applications

are available at the London High School office and at the London

Public Library. Applications must be turned in to the London

High School principal’s office by March 15, 2019.

Alder changes bus routes due to driver shortage

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

Due to a shortage of bus drivers,

Jonathan Alder Local Schools is rerouting

the district.

Mark Fenik, assistant principal at the

high school, said the district will notify parents

this week of the changes. The new

routes will go into effect Feb. 1.

“There won’t be any drastic changes,”

Fenik noted.

Two of the district’s 21 regular bus drivers

resigned this month, and the district has

no pool of substitute drivers. School officials

hope to fill the vacancies. They’ve also created

a combination driver/custodial fulltime

position in an attempt to attract

applicants.

The shortage of bus drivers is a problem

not only for Jonathan Alder but for many

area districts, said Fenik, who announced

the rerouting plan at the Jan. 14 school

board meeting.

Fenik also told board members about his

research into bussing and transportation

software. Many surrounding school districts

use software to organize various aspects of

their transportation, from routes to vehicle

maintenance. The estimated cost is $10,000

to $16,000, he said, depending on the software

brand and add-on features. He suggests

that the district start with the basic

level and add on features as the staff gets

comfortable with the software. He plans to

present a final recommendation at the February

board meeting.

At the Jan. 14 meeting, the board approved

emergency response pay rates for

bus drivers. The decision comes in the wake

of drivers assisting with emergency evacuations

at the high school and at Tolles Career

and Technical Center in December.

In other action regarding safety and security,

the board approved an upgrade to

the security camera system at Monroe Elementary

Social work

JoLynn Wheatley, the district’s social

worker, provided school board members

with an update on services provided by her

department.

Last school year, she received 114 social

work referrals. So far this year, the number

is 70. Most of the referrals are for high

school students and most involve mental

health issues. Most of the referrals come

from school guidance counselors and principals.

When possible, Wheatley helps students

with their issues or refers them to Jonathan

Alder’s in-school mental health therapist.

Currently, the therapist, under contract

through The Counseling Source, is helping

25 students. Wheatley would like to add another

part-time therapist to keep up with an

increase in referrals. She attributes the increase

in part to greater awareness of the

availability of in-school services. The district

started offering in-school therapy 18

months ago.

Among other student support services at

Jonathan Alder are Kindness Day, Internet

safety classes, and Signs Of Suicide (SOS).

The district is extending SOS, a program affiliated

with Nationwide Children’s Hospital,

to fifth-graders for the first time. The

program is slated for late January. With the

addition of fifth-graders, the district will

phase out the program for sixth-graders. It

also is provided to eighth- and 10th-graders.

Community collaborations benefitting

students include the LIFT mentor program.

John Lanka with Daily Needs Assistance in

Plain City recruits adult mentors to pair

with children in grades K-12. The program

is serving 27 students; the goal is 50 students.

To inquire about becoming a mentor,

contact Wheatley at (614) 873-8617, ext.

8324.

Other collaborations include Sufficient

Grace and Hope’s Lantern, which last year

provided take-home food to 148 students in

need, and the Plain City Church Fellowship’s

food basket project, which helped 145

families this past Christmas.

Organizational meeting

The board held their annual organizational

meeting prior to the regular meeting,

electing Steve Votaw as board president for

2019 and Tom Birches as vice president.

The board’s regular meetings will continue

to take place at 6:30 p.m. on the second

Monday of each month in Room 228 at

the high school, with some exceptions. Two

meetings will take place on Tuesdays, June

25 and July 16. Meetings with different locations

are: Feb. 11, junior high; April 8,

Monroe Elementary; Oct. 14, Plain City Elementary;

and Dec. 9, Canaan Middle

School.

CRABTREE

Betty Jean Crabtree, 76, of West Jefferson died peacefully on

Jan. 8, 2019. She was born in Portsmouth, Ohio, on May 26, 1942,

to Ralph and Louise (Porter) Thacker. Betty enjoyed her work at

Norwood Elementary School in West Jefferson for 26 years. She

loved all of the kids, gave them toys and paid for many milks or ice

In Memory of Beverly

Feb 6, 1939 – Jan 21, 2011

She was just a teen aged girl from Missouri who fell in love with a G.I. Stationed at

Ft. Leonard Wood. She had quit school during her sophomore year to go to work

to help support her widowed mother and 10 siblings. She was a little short girl

just a little over 100 lbs, but she could pack a wallop. After just knowing him for 6

weeks, her sweetheart was discharged from the army and went 2000 miles away

to seek his fortune. Little did he realize that his fortune was still sitting in Missouri.

After almost a year he saw the light, just like the prodigal son. Over the phone he

proposed to her and she said yes. A wedding was scheduled in Ohio after a Sunday

morning church service, but alas he didn't realize that the license that he got in

Missouri was only good in Missouri. On 9/11/58 they were married in a parsonage

in Missouri and on 9/14 were “married” again in West Jefferson, Ohio. She came as

just a little girl from Missouri but Oh what she became. She only had 10 years of

school, but she had the smarts and common sense to do most anything. Shortly

after the wedding she told her husband, “Don't you ever hit me, you have to go

to sleep sometime and I have an iron skillet.” She was a worker. It was a one day

honeymoon and then back to work. Two years later she presented her husband

with a beautiful daughter, three years later another one.

She quit work until the children were in school, and then she was always home

for them. She raised the children as her husband was always involved in something

that took his time, and she did a great job. When her oldest daughter became

pregnant, she said I hope it's a girl, I could never love a little boy. On February 22,

1995 Jake was born, she changed over night, they were inseparable from birth to

the time of her death 15 years later. She was tight with her money, a garage sailer

and trash picker, and knew her antiques. She saved her family a lot of money and

acquired a number of valuable antiques.

She was opinionated, and spoke her mind. You either liked her or didn't. You always

knew where you stood with her. If she liked you she'd give you the shirt off

of her back, she was always for the under privileged and down trodden. Her

outspokenness must not have affected too many people her funeral was one of

the largest seen in years. She was a great organizer, she organized and would feed

over 100 people at her church dinners. She was known as “The flower Lady of West

Jefferson.” For years she planted and maintained flowers along Main Street. She

and her husband purchased a 155 year old house that was falling down, and she

made a show place of it with her flowers. In 2003 she was found with breast cancer,

it never slowed her down.

After a mastectomy and chemo it looked like it was licked. Then in 2005 it returned,

more chemo and radiation. Some thought that the radiation would slow

her down, but it seemed to energizer her and she would come back and work all

day in the flowers. At the James Cancer Hospital she got the nick name of the Energizer

Bunny. In 2008 the cancer had gone to her lungs. She was a fighter, where

ever she was she inspired people, and influenced a lot of people by her faith. She

gave hope to people who were fighting the same battle. Her quote was “I've had

a good life, I know where I'm going and I'm ready to go.” On January 21, 2011 she

got her reward.

sacrificing service. Our commitment to excellent service allows us

cream, just to see them smile. She loved to garden, and

that's where she wants to be put to rest. She also loved

her dogs. She even made sure all of the cats were fed.

Those left to cherish her memories, great and funny as

they are, include: her husband of 59 years, Ernest Crabtree;

children, Keith Crabtree, and Melisa (Crabtree)

Tzouanakis and her husband, John of Waucunda, Illinois;

grandchildren, Kaylee Crabtree, Kory (Riley)

Crabtree, Bailey Louise (Brian) Szubinski and Taylor

John Tzouanakis; her younger brother, Randy (Brenda)

Thacker, and their son, R.J. of Minford, Ohio; nephews,

Colin (Heather) Thacker and their children, Hannah,

Micah and Cameron of Minford, Ohio, and Jonas

(Kristie) Thacker and their children, Degan and Ava of

Portsmouth, Ohio. Betty also became a great-grandma

on Dec. 17, 2017, to Brody John Szubinski from granddaughter,

Bailey and her husband, Brian. We are all so

thankful she met and got to hold him in her arms. She

is preceded in death by her parents and younger

brother, Ronald Thacker. Following Betty's wishes,

there were no services. The family was served by Rader-

Lynch and Dodds Funeral Home and Cremation Service,

London.

HAVENS

Douglas G. Havens (Dougie), 51, of Pancoastburg,

Ohio, died on Jan. 9, 2019, at his home. Dougie was born

on Feb. 20, 1967, in Washington Court House to the late

Doug and Sue Havens. Dougie was a 1985 graduate of

Miami Trace High School. He married his former

spouse, Nikki Duncan, on Oct. 11, 1989. He is survived

by: their children, Adam (April), Amanda (Ryan), Courtney

(Jeffrey) Havens, and Bethany (John) Selleck;

grandchildren, Anthony, Brandon, Garritt, Bryleigh,

Tyler, Andrew, Leeah, Brayden, Mallory, EmmaLee and

Aubree. Dougie is survived by his sisters, Dee (Mike)

Rodgers, Susan Havens, and Jennifer (Tom Nicley)

Havens. Dougie loved spending time with his family. He

enjoyed going fishing and camping with his family and

friends. He will be dearly missed by everyone who knew

him. A funeral service was held Jan. 14 at Porter-Todd

Funeral Home, Mount Sterling, followed by a burial at

Waterloo Cemetery. Following the burial, a celebration

of life was held. Memorial donations may be made to offset

funeral costs.

HUNTER

Madison Rural School before

working and retiring as food

service manager at Madison

Correctional Institution. She

was a faithful member of Newport

No more overdue fines

The London Public Library board approved a resolution to eliminate

overdue fines on all borrowed materials beginning Jan. 22.

“Overdue fines can be a real barrier to accessing library materials,

especially for children,” said Director Bryan Howard. “Our goal

is to get the materials back so that others may use them. Going to

a fine-free model allows more patrons to access library materials

and still enables us to pursue lost or missing items.”

Howard added that since the library implemented the autorenew

service, income from fines has decreased significantly. The

revenue is a very small percentage of the library’s budget, he said.

“There is a misconception that libraries are run on the money generated

from overdue fines. That is simply not the case. Overdue fines

account for less than 1 percent of our operating revenue,” he said.

The library will still work to recover lost or missing items. As is

already the case, if an item is 21 days overdue, it will be deemed

lost and the patron will be charged a replacement fee. The library

will continue to send regular notices of overdue items to patrons

and will work with a materials collections agency to assist in recovering

non-returned library materials.

“Someone’s inability to pay for a fine may cause a patron to avoid

the library when they need our services the most,” Howard said.

“This is the next logical step in eliminating barriers for patrons to

have access to our services and materials.”
