Texting 911

By Andrea Cordle

Southwest Editor

Kelley Davidson, the communications

manager for the Grove City Division of

Police, said the new county-wide text-to-

911 is an introduction into the next generation

for emergency services.

“We just took a step in that direction,”

said Davidson.

It took a few years, but Franklin

County and its jurisdictions now have the

capability to receive emergency text messages.

“We decided to do this several years

ago, but first we needed a massive

delighted children and adults alike with

“We all did this together.”

Davidson stressed that the text-to-911 service is

designed for those who cannot call. Dispatchers prefer residents

to call if they can because the emergency workers

receive more information from a phone call.

“Call if you can. Text if you can’t,” said the communications

manager.

Still Davidson said the texting capabilities

would benefit the hearing impaired, speech

impaired or individuals who may be in a situation

where calling 911 could be dangerous.

Text-to-911 works on cell phones, tablets and

other devices with the capability of sending texts.

Text-to-911 service is subject to cell signal availability.

If an emergency text does not go through,

the person trying to use the text-to-911 would

receive an automated bounce-back message letting

them know the text had not been delivered.

According to Davidson, the new service does not

include the ability to accept photos or video though

she does see that in the future.

“The technology is there,” said Davidson.

County residents while reducing costs. Dispatchers

throughout the county will now see text-to-911 messages

in a similar fashion to what shows up on a smartphone text

chain and can text back specific questions to the sender.

Agencies jointly developed pre-programmed responses

aimed to address the text emergencies they receive and

quickly ask for key information.

“Grove City is quite proud of our communications center,

recently upgraded to the latest 911 communication

technology,” said Grove City Mayor Richard “Ike” Stage.

“Like many aspects of public safety, this is another great

example of sharing resources and technology with all of

our partners in Franklin County.”

The Grove City Communications Center takes in emergency

calls from the southwest quadrant of the county

including the city of Grove City, Jackson Township,

Pleasant Township and Prairie Township. In January

2019, the center received 1,800 emergency calls.

Davidson said so far, the Grove City center has only

received a few emergency texts.

“It works well,” she said. “Hopefully it means people are

getting the message to call if you can and text if you can’t.”

In Education

Infinite Campus to expand in SWCS

By Dedra Cordle

Staff Writer

The Infinite Campus in the South-Western City

Schools District is set to expand.

At the Jan. 28 board of education meeting, food services

supervisor Lisa Hamrick announced that the

department will soon be making the transition to the

online portal.

“We are very excited about this,” she told the board.

According to Hamrick, the department will be

adding point of sale capabilities that will allow parents

to have access to account activities and balances,

including those who request free or reduced breakfast

and lunches.

“Having one system to log onto will really speed up

the process and make it more efficient,” she said.

Though an emphasis will be placed on online applications,

Hamrick said they will not do away with

paper applications.

“We will still be allow those,” she said.

There will, however, be the elimination of

PayPAMS as the department transitions to the

Infinite Campus.

“We will no longer be using those,” said Hamrick.

The transition to the Infinite Campus will come at

the beginning of August, weeks before the start of the

2019/20 school year. Hamrick said they didn’t want to

make the switch during a school year that was already

in progress.

The district began using the Infinite Campus in

2012 as a way to allow parents access to their children’s

academic reports and class schedules, and to

update emergency contact information through online

tools and applications. It can now also be used to

update medications, health information, pay school

fees and contact teachers.

In related food services news, Hamrick said more

students are eating breakfast and lunch.

“Our numbers continue to grow for breakfast and

lunch,” she said.

Free tax preparation at

Church of the Nazarene

AARP Foundation Tax-Aide volunteers

are offering free tax preparation from early

February through mid April at the Grove

City Church of the Nazarene, 4770 Hoover

Road in Grove City.

Because of the new tax laws, demand is

expected to be heavier this year. Residents

According to Hamrick, more than 6,900 students

eat breakfast daily (an average of 1.2 million per year)

and more than 13,500 students each lunch daily (an

average of 2.4 million per year).

She credited the food service cooks and staff for the

continued increase in breakfast and lunch participation.

“I cannot be more proud of our staff,” Hamrick said.

“They work really hard.”

Hamrick also spoke of the pilot café that was established

earlier this year at Grove City High School.

“I think it is going over really well,” she said of the

‘Greyhound Ground Café,’ which serves hot and cold

drinks during breaking and lunch hours.

Board member David Donofrio asked whether the

café would be expanded to each of the high schools in

the coming years.

“If things go well, we will consider looking at the

other high schools,” she said.

Hamrick added that it was piloted at Grove City

High School because there was more of a need for it

there.

In other news, transportation supervisor Tim Cox

gave an update on the department. According to Cox,

the department is running smoothly and inspections

are in progress for all of the buses in their fleet.

He also presented a snapshot with the average

number of students, runs, routes and miles traveled

per day. Cox said the buses transport more than

15,000 students per day, the fleet averages more than

16,000 miles per day, and there

are more than 180 routes driven

per day.

announced that the First Time

A lack of planning makes me a ‘Grumpy Old Man’

In a few previous columns, I’ve offered

no defense, guilty as charged. Yes, I’m a

grumpy old man. But I couldn’t help it. It

was a natural transition and I suspect others

didn’t even notice since I was also a

grumpy young man, as my wife will confirm.

But I’ve decided to fight the stigma of

The Court ruling. Your Honor, in my

defense, there were extenuating circumstances.

Really, it’s only one thing I’m

grumpy about, that’s life in general and I

still insist I’m only grumpy when it’s

deserved. Hear me out. I call to the stand

my first defense witness.

I recently went to the Schott to see a

basketball game. We properly planned and

got there shortly before tipoff and made our

way up to the ozone layer. The seats were

the equivalent of a flight’s tourist class,

only not as roomy or comfortable. After

unsuccessfully trying various approaches, I

painfully succeeded in crumpling up like

an accordion into my unpadded seat, with

its whole six inches of leg space, trying

hard not to let my knees bonk the person in

front of me who was busy scarfing down

nachos. The game was set to begin.

It started and so did the predictable,

“excuse me, sorry, need to get by, coming

through,” late procession. The only way

they could get by was for me to make feeble

attempts as a contortionist and unravel

myself, stand and give them the only available

inch to move by. “Ouch, hey

Twinkletoes, you’re on my foot!” I could

hear cheering coming from the game

beyond my blocked view. We were near the

mid-point of the first half before our row

and the aisles in front of us were finally

clear. Then, with lots of time left in the

first half, the mass procession to the concession

stands and restrooms began.

As the second half began, the seats were

still empty. Then the return stampede

started. “Ouch! Hey, you spilled your beer

on me! You mind getting the popcorn you

dropped out of my hair! You spilled your

This school year brought a major milestone

to my family - packing lunches.

In first grade, my oldest daughter is now

a full-day student, and on top of that, my

youngest daughter is now in preschool and

requires a snack each day.

For years, I packed my lunch for work,

but often it was leftovers.

Packing for picky eaters makes that

nearly impossible considering dad and I

like a little more variety in taste than our

younger ones.

Although noodles are the go-to staple for

the kids, I’ve found myself struggling (and

I’m just on day three of school as I write

this) on what to pack. Looking through

mustard and relish all over me, how about

the hotdog so I can make a meal out of it.”

It was midway into the second half before

we were all finally crumpled back into our

luxury torture seats. That only lasted a few

minutes, then the mass migration for beer

refills and more hotdogs and nature calls.

With a quarter of the game to go, some

started filing out. I was wondering why

they even came? By the time the game

ended, I estimated our view was unobstructed

for maybe half the game, at most.

I’m betting most of you can relate to that

experience, be it a sporting event, a concert,

movie, or whatever you’ve attended?

It’s not a rare thing; it’s always that way.

Your Honor, I can put up with all of it, it’s

the ones who file in late that always get me

grumpy. I know, there are times it can’t be

avoided, but for too many, it’s just a way of

life, no matter what they do. We all know

people like that, sure bets to be late for

everything? To me it’s the lack of attention

and/or priority to planning and the insensitivity

to others that gets me grumpy.

I recall my working days. I had a slogan

on the wall, ‘Any lack of planning on your

part does not constitute a crisis on my

part.” Unfortunately, others, too often

including management, had their own:

‘Why do today what you can put off until

tomorrow.’ Net result was others always

had to pick up the slack and still get results

for the poor planning procrastinators.

You could give management a four-year

warning or just a two-week notice on a

retirement. It didn’t matter, it would

always become a last second fire drill with

no trained backfill ready. We’d have the

inevitable hastily called group meeting,

“we have a problem, we’ll have to divvy

his/her work up until we get someone in

here and up to speed.” (Note: it was implied

management was going to help, hardy har

har)!

One time they decided to change (they

called it enhance) the huge corporate

accounting system. I noticed the scope of

the conversion failed to include the business

I did the accounting for. I pointed that

out, but it fell on deaf ears and rather than

regroup and re-plan, it was man the torpedoes

full speed ahead. I also pointed out the

new system had very limited reporting

capabilities.

The implementation team finished the

conversion, collected bonuses, got their promotions

and moved on, heralding the

closed conversion project as a huge success.

In no time, it was the usual enhancement

gone awry with businesses screaming they

needed better reporting. I had to use more

band-aids than were stocked on the shelves

at the local pharmacy to be able to keep

feeding the accounting data from my

excluded business to the new corporate system.

I also warned them no one knew had

to properly put the band-aids on the

wound, except me. I had no trained backup.

I heard that immediately became another

needless, “We have a problem,” crisis after

I retired.

More examples, Your Honor? How about

our government leaders? They set the new

low standard in lack of planning and procrastination

for our youth to follow with

their always predictable, irresponsible

budget policy of ‘continuing resolution’.

“We’ll deal with it later, let’s kick the can

down the road again and get out of here for

vacation”. So many issues have needed

attention for so long, social security,

health, infrastructure, immigration, balanced

budget, on and on it goes. But nope,

upcoming elections and political concerns

always take precedence. Don’t rock the

boat, we’ll deal with it later, when they

have more time and can sit down and arbitrate

and compromise. Right, we all believe

that. Is there anything they ever do that

doesn’t come down to the wire and/or result

in a needless fire-drill crisis for us to put up

with? Am I not correct, Your Honor?

I remember when that war zone I-71

social media forums, I know I’m not alone.

Social media can be a blessing and a

curse. We all know the negatives of social

media and the web, but in this instance,

they’ve been a blessing.

I’ve learned several helpful tips that

may seem obvious, but when you’re overwhelmed,

they’re helpful reassurances.

These include:

•Pack foods you know your kids will eat

- not what you wish they would eat.

•Examine your kid’s lunch box when

she comes home. This will provide clues

into what are good or bad choices to include

based on what’s uneaten. Just because

something is uneaten, as well, does not

mean it wasn’t liked. It might simply have

taken too long to eat when kids are on a

timed schedule for lunch.

•Kids won’t care if you spend 5 minutes

or 50 minutes packing their lunches, so

save time in whatever ways you can.

•Tupperware containers that have compartments

are great. They save you time

from washing a million little containers

and save the kids time opening up those

million little containers. Just make sure

whatever container you pick fits in the

lunch box.

Seems easy enough, right? Now comes

the hard part - filling the lunch boxes.

One thing I’ve discovered is allowing my

Community Focus

PokeStop raising safety concerns in township

By Dedra Cordle

Staff Writer

A popular game is raising safety concerns in a Jackson

Township community.

At the Feb. 5 board of trustees meeting, township

administrator Shane Farnsworth said he has received

complaints from residents in the Emersonia subdivision

who have seen Pokémon Go players parking their vehicles

in intersections in order to catch the virtual characters.

“They apparently just stop in the middle of the road

(and play),” he said.

Farnsworth said the residents who have called are troubled

by this behavior and are worried it will only get worse

as the warmer season approaches.

“This is something that does need to be addressed,” he

said. “It certainly poses a safety hazard.”

But what can be done about motorists who drive around

looking to catch Pokémon and find it acceptable to stop in

the road to collect them? Not too much, admitted Franklin

County Sheriff Deputy Jason Ronk.

“We have to catch them in the act and then we can

address the issue,” said the community liaison after the

meeting.

“But the thing I would strongly recommend is that people

be smart; don’t play with your phone when you’re driving,

be aware of your surroundings and obey the traffic

laws.”

He said that these complaints are not isolated to the

Emersonia community either.

“We’ve received complaints like this all over,” he said.

“I’ve pulled over a few kids myself who were just sitting in

the roadway, waiting for something to pop up.”

He said that while he appreciates that people

want to get outside and play, they need to educate

themselves about what is acceptable behavior.

“Blocking traffic to play games is not,” Ronk

said.

In related news, trustee David Burris said he

fielded numerous complaints related to speeding on

Hiner and Home roads. He asked Ronk during the

regular meeting whether he believed flashing solar

speed signs were efficient deterrents to reduce

speeding.

“I think they are a good deterrent while they’re

posted,” he said.

Ronk added that

he read a few studies

that show

motorists do reduce

their speed once

they see the flashing

indicators.

“There is something that reacts in our brains when we

see that and it causes us to slow down.”

Burris said he would like the township to see how much

it would cost to order and post them in high speeding

areas.

In other news, the next regular meeting will be held at

1:30 p.m. on Feb. 19 at the Jackson Township

Administrative Building, located at 3756 Hoover Road.

to dress “groovy” for the occasion.

Featured speakers include Cynthia

Grove City Council wants to eliminate

visual blight in the community.

At the Feb. 4 meeting, council unanimously

voted to amend the property offenses

portion of the city code to now include

unsolicited written materials.

This legislation is in reference to The

Bag, which delivers advertisements and

The Columbus Messenger Newspapers.

The Bag is delivered by Dispatch

Consumer Services.

“We receive numerous trash complaints

about these bags blowing into yards and

into drainage areas,” said councilwoman

Christine Houk. “We are trying to deal

with this issue while trying to protect the

First Amendment right of the organizations

delivering the materials.”

Houk said citizens complain that the

delivery drivers throw the materials out of

their vehicles into yards or in the streets.

This has resulted in clogged storm drains

which has backed up water in public

rights-of-way.

Councilman Roby Schottke said he

walks around his neighborhood and sees

the problem firsthand.

“Put them on hooks or in the mail slots.

Don’t just thrown them out,” said Schottke.

“I’m glad we’re doing this.”

Law Director Stephen Smith said Grove

City would pattern its enforcement after

Upper Arlington, which approved similar

legislation. He said the city will first notify

the public of the code change, as well as the

delivery company.

“We hope the deliveries meet our expectations,”

said Smith. “Upper Arlington has

been able to compel compliance with the

threat of a citation.”

According to the legislation, no person

shall deliver, place or distribute unsolicited

written materials to any premise other

than on a porch nearest the front door,

through a mail slot on the front door, in a

distribution box located on the property,

securely attached to a hook on the mailbox

or within a mail slot, or personally to the

occupant of the property. This provision

does not apply to the United States Postal

Service.

Violations of the code would be classified

as a misdemeanor, punishable by a

fine of $250 per violation.

“This legislation gives the city the ability

to cite the driver throwing the materials

out of the vehicle or the organization,” said

Smith.

Dispatch Consumer Services did not

want to comment on the legislation at this

time.

In related news, city leaders spoke

about a new initiative to reduce the use of

plastic bags in the city.

Linda Rosine, environmental coordinator,

briefly spoke about the Think Outside

the Bag campaign the city is working on.

Rosine said this program would encourage

city residents to either use reusable bags

when shopping or take the plastic bags

back to the retail outlet for recycling.

Schottke said several communities have

enforced a ban on plastic bags, though he

was not sure about going that route yet.

“What should we do instead of plastic

bags,” asked the councilman. “We should

look at doing things differently.”

Messenger photos by Dedra Cordle

The beaming smiles were brighter than the neon decorations and adornments at

the third annual Mother and Son Glow Party at J.C. Sommer Elementary School on

Jan. 25. The night-time fiesta was presented by the school’s Parent Teacher

Association as a way to beat the winter doldrums and try to embarrass children as

their mothers danced the night away. Shown here Danna Lotz does the Macarena

with her son Diesel, a fourth grader at the school. The third grade teacher said she

was surprised he was familiar with the moves and thinks it was due to the influence

of an older sister.

By Rick Palsgrove

Southeast Editor

Racing through the decades at Columbus Motor Speedway

The roar and blur of fast race cars

speeding around the track at the Columbus

Motor Speedway were once familiar sites

and sounds on the south end of Columbus.

From 1946 to 2016 the speedway, with

its one-third mile track, operated just

south of Williams Road near Obetz. For

much of its history it was led by the

Nuckles family and was home to a variety

of motorsports races including motorcycles,

coupes, and stock cars. It also offered stock

car shows, school bus races, and thrill

shows.

After the speedway ceased operations,

the village of Obetz purchased the site

which has since become Fortress Obetz, an

athletic and concert facility.

Columbus resident and racing historian

Mike Garrepy has captured the history of

the race track in his new book, “Columbus

Motor Speedway,” published by Arcadia

Publishing. The book contains 127 pages of

photos and text on the history of the track.

The book shows how the models and

styles of racing vehicles changed over the

decades of Columbus Motor Speedway’s

operation from home built vehicles to modern

custom built race cars. Also of note is

how, as time wore on, the speed and power

of the vehicles increased and how the level

of safety gear worn by the drivers evolved.

I interviewed Garrepy about his book:

Why did you decide to write the book and

why are you interested in the Columbus Motor

Speedway?

Mike Garrepy: “The reason for the book

is simple: to preserve the history of the

track in written and pictorial form and to

provide a place where fans and drivers

could return to recall some of the great

times each had. Not to make it all syrupy,

but for many drivers race nights made

them something special, especially if they

won. Come Monday morning they went

back to body shops, garages, driving

trucks, building roads or whatever, but on

race night they were the star of the show. I

hope I preserve that in some way.”

What set the Columbus Motor Speedway

apart and made it special compared with

other race tracks?

MG: “It wasn’t just one thing, but rather

a combination of things. First, if a fan

wanted to see racing on asphalt in the

Columbus area, Columbus Speedway was

the only option unless they wanted to travel.

The Nuckles family did not exploit this.

They kept the facility clean and fresh looking

with repairs and paint as needed. They

invested heavily in new buildings with

flush toilets and concession stands. Repairs

were made quickly. The grass was cut prior

to race night, the shrubs clipped, the PA

system worked and an extensive lighting

system was installed. In later years the pit

area was paved — not something all tracks

have. They promoted upcoming events

heavily to build excitement. They kept

admission prices reasonable and generally

finished around 10 p.m., which means the

younger fans would still stay awake. These

are all things many other tracks either

missed or ignored.”

Do you have a favorite car and driver who

competed there? Why are they your favorite?

MG: “If I had to name a driver as a

favorite, it would be the late Dale Pyle. In

his last months of his life earlier this year,

I spent every Thursday afternoon for three

months with him as morphine was injected

to ward off the pain of his cancer. His

insight and understanding of racing and a

driver’s mentality allowed me to see the

sport in a different light. It was as if he cowrote

the book.”

What are your thoughts about the demise

of the speedway and what has been lost to

the community now that it is gone?

MG: “It is sad on so many levels. Besides

cars going around in a circle, racing is also

a social event. When a track closes folks

lose contact with the friends who they have

parked next to or sat next to for many

years. Many people I have interviewed said

they miss seeing their at-the-track friends

as much as the racing itself.”

Where can people purchase your book?

MG: “Contact me at

Mike.garrepy@gmail.com, contact the publisher

at Arcadiapublishing.com or see us

at one of our meet and greet events. Each

greet is detailed on the Facebook page

‘Columbus Motor Speedway Gone but Not

Forgotten.’ I will also have a display at the

Piqua Mall’s Race Car show on March 22,

23 and 24.”

“Free Solo” should climb to the top of your must see list

I remember the moment when word

broke that Alex Honnold had made history

by becoming the first individual to free solo

El Capitan, a 3,000 foot high granite monolith

nestled in the famed Yosemite

National Park. I was flipping through the

news stations, wondering what fresh horror

this world had to offer, when the chyron

announced this historic event. I did not,

and still do not, know much about big-wall

climbing and those who do it, but I was

swept up in this achievement, cognizant of

this feat of human skill and celebrating in

the fact that this person realized a dream

and was alive to share the story.

In the weeks that followed, however, I

forgot the most important detail. I could

tell you that someone recently climbed El

Capitan without the use of a rope or other

safety gear but I would have had to rack

my brain to remember the name of the man

who did it. Then came the film that documented

his journey. “Free Solo,” a National

Geographic feature which has only been

shown in IMAX, puts you right there with

Honnold as he makes his attempt. It’s

frightening, dazzling, mind-boggling, exhilarating

and it makes sure that you (and I!)

will never forget his name again.

It begins by introducing us, the general

“Rumors”

at Ready

Bishop Ready Theatre Department’s

winter production is Neil Simon’s

“Rumors,” a play described as producing

a “severe attack of Farce.”

One of Simon’s most celebrated comedies,

the subject is a dinner party gone

awry and Simon himself said he had

nothing more on his mind “except making

the audience laugh.”

The play takes place at a townhouse

where the participants have gathered for

a 10th anniversary celebration. The

group of young professionals, all up-andcoming,

includes lawyers, an accountant,

a psychiatrist, a politician, and the host

of a cooking show.

A gunshot causing temporary deafness,

and a need to “cover up” an unfortunate

accident, (plus two police officers)

leads to the comedy that Simon himself

described thus: “a farce is relentless…

people in a farce are trying to withhold

information from other people.”

“Rumors” runs Friday, Feb. 15, at 7

In rehearsal for Bishop Ready’s production

of “Rumors,” are (seated)

seniors Brigitte Bowman and Dominic

Tokar; (back) senior John Pyles,

sophomore Grace Larger and junior

Julianne Pece.

p.m., Saturday, Feb. 16, at 2 p.m., and

Sunday, Feb. 17, at 2 p.m. Tickets are

$10 for adults, $9 for students, and $8

for those 65 and older.

For more information, call Bishop

Ready High School at 614-276-5263.

th

public, to Alex Honnold, a 30-something

year old who predominately lives inside of

a camper. Since his introduction to wall

and rock climbing as a teen, Honnold has

been travelling the world, honing his

Spiderman-like skills on some of the most

challenging granite terrain in the world —

most of them done without the use of safety

equipment.

At first, he tries to explain what attracts

him to this dangerous activity but comes to

the realization that he cannot get others to

understand. He is fully aware that he may

die while free soloing, but to him his

chances are no greater than getting in a car

and being hit by a drunk driver.

The dream of free soloing El Capitan, he

says, came to him some time ago. As a

famous free soloist, he was constantly

asked about making an attempt during

interviews but was always cagey in his

answers. He said this was done so there

was no undue pressure or expectations put

on him but once he got it into his mind that

climbing El Capitan was something he

wanted to do, he went all out to achieve his

dream.

For more than three years, Alex and his

fellow expert climbing friends mapped out

his path to the top. He would begin by taking

the Freerider route and following all 33

pitches with special attention being paid to

‘The Boulder Problem,’ which is considered

the most treacherous part of the route due

to its pencil-thin handholds and slippery

wall that is near completely vertical. After

that was completed, he would then traverse

another thousand or so feet to make

his way to the Enduro Pitch and its sharp,

exposed corners and sculpt his body to

them as he continues to ascend. After, it is

all mind over the prospect of celebration

until he traverses another couple hundred

feet to the top. Or so they desperately hope.

“Free Solo” documents these trial and

error runs — all done with their safety

equipment fully in place — and then takes

us into Alex’s mind as he comes home to

write about which moves would work best.

It also shows us the toll his dream takes on

his family and friends, one of which is codirector

Jimmy Chin. Like his fellow

climbers and filmmakers, Chin knows the

importance of documenting this attempt

but he also knows he would be on hand to

witness the death of his best friend should

a finger or soft sole slip.

Though the outcome of Alex’s free solo

attempt is now known, it doesn’t take away

from that sense of suspense as he makes

GOOD

The Reel Deal

Dedra Cordle

the decision to

attempt El Capitan.

In fact, the film

amplifies it through

up-close shots of

Alex’s rosin encrusted

hands gripping

barely there

grooves, the muscles in his legs stretching

as he balances and grips the rock wall, and

the bottomless view of ground below.

“Free Solo” is going to be tough for some

people to get through — the camera sweeps

along the landscape at dizzying heights,

the mid-section that lulls with relationship

drama, the lack of understanding of why he

does the things he does — but if you think

you can handle it go see it before it leaves

the theater. “Free Solo” is a terrific documentary

offering a glimpse into the mindset

of a thrill-seeking man few will ever

want to emulate, but one that many ought

to get to know. Grade: A

community events

Dedra Cordle is a Messenger staff writer

and columnist.
