Sheriff to retire in March; acting sheriff named<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

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

After more than 14 years as sheriff and a total<br />

of 37 years with the Sheriff’s Office, <strong>Madison</strong><br />

County Sheriff Jim Sabin is retiring.<br />

Sabin made the official announcement at the<br />

county commissioners’ office on Feb. 12. His last<br />

day on the job is March 15.<br />

“It’s been a blast. It’s been fun,” Sabin said with<br />

tears in his eyes. “This county has been so good to<br />

me.”<br />

A little less than two years remain on Sabin’s<br />

current term as sheriff. Sabin recommended that<br />

the commissioners appoint Lt. John Swaney as<br />

acting sheriff effective March 15. After that, it will<br />

be up to the <strong>Madison</strong> County Republican Central<br />

Committee to select the person who will complete<br />

the term. Sabin said he is recommending that the<br />

committee choose Swaney.<br />

“A major consideration in my retirement was to<br />

ensure my successor would maintain the high<br />

standards and dedication due to the citizens of<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> County,” Sabin said. “Over a year ago, I<br />

made it known that I would be retiring at some<br />

time in the future. Lt. John Swaney and Lt. Eric<br />

Semler have responded, determining among themselves,<br />

if given the opportunity, John could confidently<br />

serve as sheriff while Eric would be his<br />

second in command.”<br />

Combined, Swaney and Semler have more than<br />

40 years of service to the Sheriff’s Office.<br />

Over the past year, Swaney has worked with<br />

Sabin to realign the office for the future transition.<br />

He has worked on budget, personnel and operations<br />

tasks. Sabin has introduced him to duties<br />

and obligations that are the sole responsibility of<br />

the sheriff.<br />

“(Swaney) knows the county. He knows the people<br />

of the county. He knows what they expect. I am<br />

confident he will serve in a professional and dedicated<br />

manner,” Sabin said.<br />

“I am very blessed to have got to work under<br />

Sheriff Sabin,” Swaney said. “His shoes are impossible<br />

to fill.”<br />

Commissioner Dr. Tony Xenikis said Swaney<br />

was sure to make Sabin proud. Commissioner<br />

Mark Forrest said the same.<br />

“I know you see it as big shoes to fill but we<br />

know you can make you’re on big shoes to fill,” Forrest<br />

said.<br />

Commissioner David Hunter asked Semler<br />

what he thought of the coming change.<br />

Semler said that he and Swaney working together<br />

will make the task of following in Sabin’s<br />

footsteps easier.<br />

“It will take two of us,” Semler said.<br />

Hunter thanked Sabin for his service, saying,<br />

“We sure do appreciate everything you’ve done for<br />

this county.”<br />

London Fire & EMS acquires former EMD site<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

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

The London Fire and Emergency Medical<br />

Services (EMS) Department now owns<br />

the former <strong>Madison</strong> County Emergency<br />

Medical Department (EMD) station at 40 E.<br />

Center St.<br />

The city acquired the property as part of<br />

a division of assets following its split from<br />

the EMD last year. The property transfer<br />

took place on Feb. 1.<br />

The plan, said Chief Todd Eades, is to<br />

turn the facility into a satellite fire and<br />

EMS station that will be staffed around the<br />

clock. It will be home to one fire vehicle and<br />

one EMS squad vehicle. The department’s<br />

main station at East High Street will have<br />

three fire vehicles and two EMS vehicles.<br />

“The satellite station makes it closer for<br />

response in the southern area of the city. It<br />

something we’ve been wanting to do for a<br />

long, long time,” Eades said.<br />

The station is located south of the railroad<br />

tracks that bisect the city.<br />

The department has inspected and assessed<br />

the building to determine what<br />

needs to be done to make it operational as<br />

a fire and EMS station.<br />

“No major changes are needed,” Eades<br />

said.<br />

The first priorities are to get phone, Internet<br />

and cable in place so that the notification<br />

system for dispatching calls can be<br />

set up. The to-do list also includes repairing<br />

Downtown parking permits possible<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

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

London city council is looking to offer overnight parking permits<br />

for downtown residents.<br />

Currently, it is illegal for anyone to park their cars between 3<br />

a.m. and 5 a.m. on Main Street between High Street and Center<br />

Street and on High Street between Union Street and <strong>Madison</strong> Road.<br />

Those hours are reserved for street cleaning when necessary.<br />

“I can move better and sleep better. I am in<br />

a much better mood. I can do more with my<br />

family and I’m actually looking forward to<br />

the summer so I can work in my yard. I’m<br />

looking forward to retirement now!” R.H.<br />

740-852-1965<br />

www.dwyerchiropractic.com<br />

Legislation introduced at the Feb. 7 council meeting would allow<br />

anyone who lives in the downtown district to apply for a permit to<br />

park overnight. Anyone without a permit would be restricted to<br />

parking no more than two hours at a time between 5 p.m. and 8 a.m.<br />

The permits would be free and good for 90 days at a time. Applications<br />

would be available through the police department. Applicants<br />

would need to supply their name, address, make and model<br />

of vehicle, and telephone number.<br />

The permits would not be in effect during street sweeping, snow<br />

emergencies, festivals, special events, and any other time the city<br />

notifies permit holders the permits are not in effect.<br />

Mayor Patrick Closser said the permits would benefit downtown<br />

residents and the city. Residents would be able to park closer to their<br />

homes. The city would have a way to contact residents who need to<br />

move their cars during times when the permits are not in effect.<br />

The proposed legislation will be up for a second reading at council’s<br />

Feb. 21 meeting.<br />

Council also held a first reading on the transfer of funds for various<br />

departments’ capital expenses for the year. They include:<br />

• $510,000 for the street department for storm sewer and road<br />

work, as well as roof repair at the department’s facility;<br />

• $312,000 for the fire and EMS department for lease payments<br />

on EMS start-up equipment, technology upgrades and fire gear; and<br />

• $150,000 for the parks and recreation department to go toward<br />

installation of a splash pad at the city pool. According to<br />

Closser, the project will cost between $270,000 and $310,000.<br />

Council approved $90,000 in capital funds for the police department<br />

to purchase two vehicles.<br />

In other action, council:<br />

• started the process for annexing the land where the street department’s<br />

new headquarters sit. The four acres are part of Union<br />

Township. The street department moved last year from its shared<br />

space with the fire department to the former Ohio Department of<br />

Transportation (ODOT) garage at 1460 State Rte. 42.<br />

• approved a $65,000 bid for the sale of the city’s property at 6<br />

E. Second St. The building was home to council chambers, the<br />

mayor’s office and the safety-service director’s office. Those facilities<br />

are now located at city hall at 20 S. Walnut St.<br />

• gave Joe Mosier, safety-service director, permission to enter<br />

into a contract with ODOT for resurfacing of State Route 142 between<br />

Keny Boulevard in London and the West Jefferson village<br />

limits. The city’s share of the project is $26,954. The project is slated<br />

to go out to bid in March and be finished this year.

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

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

The city of London now has a Historic Downtown Revitalization<br />

Commission.<br />

On Feb. 7, city council approved Mayor Patrick<br />

Closser’s appointments to the commission. The fivemember<br />

board is made up of London residents and individuals<br />

who own buildings or businesses in the<br />

downtown area. Members are Jackie Bryant Call, Todd<br />

Fisher, David Mabe, Joe Russell and Shannon Treynor.<br />

Each is serving a two-year term.<br />

The commission will work with business owners and<br />

property owners to:<br />

• create a list of needed renovations in the historic<br />

district;<br />

• develop strategies to attract business;<br />

• identify policies or regulations that interfere with<br />

business;<br />

• create a strategy to deploy targeted resources; and<br />

• bring recommendations to city council for consideration.<br />

Appointments to the commission have been a long<br />

time coming. Council approved creation of the group in<br />

2015. At the same time, they approved creation of a Historic<br />

Downtown Revitalization Fund.<br />

Money for the fund comes from collection of delinquent<br />

income taxes. The fund is set up to receive 100<br />

percent of the first $50,000 collected by the Central Collection<br />

Agency, a company the city hired to pursue<br />

delinquent taxes. After that, 50 percent of the money<br />

collected will go to the fund. Distributions to the fund<br />

began in 2015; it currently stands at $12,081.<br />

The commission’s first meeting is tentatively set for<br />

5:30 p.m. March 12 in the council conference room at<br />

city hall, 20 S. Walnut St.<br />

Other Appointments<br />

Council also approved the following appointments<br />

recommended by Closser:<br />

• Donald Hawkins to the Board of Zoning Appeals,<br />

five-year term;<br />

• Christie Adkins to the Playground and Public<br />

Recreation Commission, three-year term;<br />

• Phil Taylor to the Historic District Review Board,<br />

three-year term; and<br />

• Gary Peters, Tom Cox and Steve Lelonek to the Income<br />

Tax Board of Review for two-, four- and six-year<br />

terms, respectively.<br />

PRESIDENT'S DAY<br />

<strong>2019</strong><br />

This coming Monday, <strong>February</strong> 18, <strong>2019</strong> is<br />

President's Day here in America—a day set aside to<br />

honor two of our most famous Presidents: George<br />

Washington, “The Father of Our Country,” and Abraham<br />

Lincoln, “The Great Emancipator.” Let’s take time on<br />

that day to be thankful not only for these two truly great<br />

Americans, but for all of our leaders who have helped to<br />

make our Nation what it is today.<br />

Mondays and Wednesdays. Call (740) 852-3001 for an<br />

she stated.<br />

In a phone interview on Feb. 12, Vansickle said that,<br />

like Ward, she believes council and the administration<br />

should be doing more to investigate the loan agreement<br />

for the water plant and finding ways to alleviate the financial<br />

burden on residents.<br />

Also, both Vansickle and Ward allege that village officials<br />

are not following Ohio Revised Code or Roberts<br />

Rules of Order for running meetings in some instances.<br />

While she is no longer on council, Vansickle stated,<br />

“I will not give up on helping the residents and standing<br />

up for them.”<br />

Burns’s resignation letter simply stated, “Due to reason<br />

too numerous to list at this time, I am resigning<br />

from my position on village council of Mount Sterling,<br />

• complete tax forms involving itemized deductions,<br />

education expenses and credits, and cancellation of<br />

debt; and<br />

• prepare and file simple self-employment returns.<br />

Documents taxpayers should bring with them to a<br />

Tax-Aide appointment include:<br />

• driver’s license or photo ID;<br />

• Social Security card;<br />

• last year’s tax return;<br />

• income statements, such as W-2 forms from work,<br />

1099 retirement income forms from pensions and Social<br />

Security, brokerage account statements, and interest<br />

statements from banks;<br />

• Expense statements, such as 1098 form showing<br />

mortgage interest paid, forms for educational expenses,<br />

church and charity donation receipts, and a list of medical<br />

expenses.<br />

Last year, 1,500 volunteers prepared 80,000 tax returns<br />

at 285 locations across Ohio. A person does not<br />

need to be a member of AARP to use the service. The<br />

service is free.<br />

For details and a list of other Ohio tax preparation<br />

locations, go to aarp.org/money/taxes/aarp_taxaide.<br />

effective immediately.” When contacted by phone,<br />

Burns said she planned to issue a more detailed statement<br />

in the near future.<br />

About the resignations, Martin said, “This came, not<br />

as a shock, but a little of a surprise about how it was<br />

done. However, we will keep moving forward, we still<br />

have a team and will be just fine. I guarantee it.”<br />

“I am anxious to get these seats filled,” said David<br />

Timmons, council president pro tem. “We have important<br />

legislation and positions we need to fill. We have<br />

issues with potholes, need to hire an administrator and<br />

a new water operator/utility worker. We need to get<br />

these seats filled quickly so we can get to work.”<br />

In addition to Timmons, the remaining members of<br />

council are Lowell Anderson and Rebecca Martin.<br />

London wrestlers face tough opponent at state<br />

By Pat Donahue<br />

Saff Photographer<br />

London High School’s wrestling team<br />

competed in the 7th Annual Ohio High<br />

School Athletic Association state wrestling<br />

dual team tournament on Feb. 10 at St.<br />

John Arena in Columbus.<br />

London wrestlers have qualified for individual<br />

competition at the state level in<br />

past years, but this is the first time the program<br />

has qualified for the team competition.<br />

The Red Raiders made it to the team<br />

contest by winning their Div. II regional<br />

tournament on Feb. 2; in the final round,<br />

they beat Miami Trace, who made it to the<br />

state tournament the previous two years<br />

At the state competition, the top eight<br />

teams in each of three divisions took to the<br />

mats. London faced the top seed, wrestling<br />

powerhouse St. Paris Graham, who had<br />

taken home top honors in the previous six<br />

state team tourneys.<br />

London battled in all 14 weight classes<br />

with highlights coming in the way of wins<br />

by 170-pound junior Darian Huff, who beat<br />

Graham sophomore Eric Thomas 5-4, and<br />

145-pound freshman Antwaun Burns who<br />

claimed a technical fall with a 21-6 victory<br />

over Graham sophomore Jack Mefford.<br />

Graham took the win over London 62-8<br />

London freshman Antwaun Burns takes a 21-6 technical fall victory<br />

over St. Paris Graham sophomore Jack Mefford at the state<br />

team wrestling tournament. Burns competed in the Div. II 145-<br />

pound weight class.<br />

and went on to beat Sandusky Perkins 58-<br />

13 in the semi-finals and Aurora 38-24 in the<br />

finals to claim their seventh state dual title.<br />

JA synthetic turf project<br />

nears fundraising goal<br />

After the match, London Coach Richard<br />

Burns called the tournament an “awesome<br />

experience.” He praised his team for putting<br />

in the training and hard work necessary to<br />

make it to the state stage.<br />

Paris Graham sophomore Eric Thomas in the Div. II 170-pound<br />

weight class at the state team wrestling tournament.<br />

said, “To be your best, you have to face the<br />

best.”<br />

Burns said he is extremely proud of his<br />

wrestlers and looks forward to the chance<br />

that some of them will qualify for the state<br />

individual tournament in March.<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

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

The goal line is in site for the Jonathan<br />

Alder field turf project.<br />

District residents Joel Maynard and<br />

Rayce Robinson initiated fundraising a little<br />

over two years ago to replace the grass on<br />

the high school’s primary athletic field with<br />

synthetic turf. At the Feb. 11 school board<br />

meeting, they announced they had surpassed<br />

the $510,000 mark.<br />

Their goal is to raise $550,000 by April 1<br />

so that a contract can be signed with a turf<br />

company, allowing the installation to start<br />

late this spring and finish up prior to the<br />

start of next school year.<br />

“It certainly hasn’t been the easiest thing<br />

on the planet,” Robinson said of the task of<br />

fundraising, but added that partnership<br />

with the Jonathan Alder Athletic Boosters<br />

and the school board’s public endorsement of<br />

the project has been tremendously helpful.<br />

In the last two months alone, the committee<br />

has raised more than $240,000. One<br />

donor, whose name will be released at a<br />

later date, pledged $150,000. Several have<br />

donated at the $50,000, $25,000 and<br />

$10,000 levels. The district’s Music Boosters<br />

recently donated $6,000. The overall<br />

fundraising total also includes in-kind donations.<br />

All funding for the project is coming<br />

from private donations. No taxpayer or<br />

school district money is involved.<br />

Maynard and Robinson said the new turf<br />

will benefit the school several ways. Being<br />

synthetic, it will hold up to more use than<br />

its natural counterpart, they said. That<br />

means the field won’t be restricted to use<br />

only during football, lacrosse, and boys’ and<br />

girls’ soccer games and marching band performances.<br />

Those groups and others in the<br />

district will be able to use it for practices<br />

and scrimmages, too. Fewer games and<br />

events will be cancelled due to weather,<br />

Maynard added, and the district should<br />

save money because the field will require<br />

less maintenance.<br />

Maynard and Robinson also said the<br />

newly resurfaced field likely will generate<br />

revenue for the district in the form of usage<br />

fees for playoff games, marching band contests,<br />

and other special events coordinated<br />

by outside organizations. They see it serving<br />

as an asset to the community, as well, providing<br />

a playing field for area youth athletic<br />

leagues and the like.<br />

“It’s definitely a game changer,” Maynard<br />

said.<br />

Donations to the project can be made online<br />

at www.alderfieldturf.com or by check<br />

P.O. Box 212, Plain City, OH 43064. All donations<br />

At 6:30 p.m. Feb, 20, the Jonathan Alder<br />

Local School District will hold a screening<br />

of the documentary at Jonathan Alder High<br />

School. The event will feature a viewing of<br />

the 55-minute film, followed by a panel discussion<br />

moderated by Jennifer Korn, director<br />

of student services, with special guests<br />

Rachel Sorrell of Nationwide Children’s<br />

Hospital, Dr. John Adams II of Memorial<br />

Health, and Pastor Blaine Keene of Journey<br />

Community Church.<br />

Producers Scilla Andreen and Karin Gornick<br />

have one goal: to start a global conversation<br />

and raise awareness around anxiety.<br />

Through candid interviews, they tell the stories<br />

of children dealing with anxiety, its impact<br />

on their lives and relationships, and how<br />

they have found solutions and hope.<br />

The film also includes an interview with<br />

Olympic swimmer and mental health advocate<br />

Michael Phelps and discussions with<br />

mental health experts about the causes of<br />

anxiety and its sociological effects, as well<br />

as the help, resources and tools available to<br />

address the condition.<br />

In addition to the film, a virtual reality<br />

component allows users to experience a<br />

panic attack first-hand, further building<br />

awareness and empathy for anxiety sufferers.<br />

The virtual reality component has been<br />

developed with support from Google.<br />

While “Angst” documents the struggles<br />

some people have with anxiety, it also reveals<br />

their hope for the future. Noah, a<br />

teenager in the film, describes it this way:<br />

“Anxiety doesn’t define me. It’s not just a<br />

curse; it also gives me strength.”<br />

“Everybody needs to know that anxiety<br />

disorders are real, common and treatable instead<br />

of viewing them as a personal choice<br />

or something to be ashamed of,” said Dr.<br />

Jerry Bubrick, senior director of Anxiety<br />

Disorders Center, Child Mind Institute.<br />

“Getting help early is crucial in giving people<br />

the tools they need to feel better. We just<br />

need to start the conversation.”<br />

“We felt it was important to make a<br />

movie that could raise awareness to open up<br />

the conversation and provide hope,” said<br />

Andreen, IndieFlix CEO and “Angst” producer.<br />

“So many people struggle with anxiety<br />

and have trouble talking about it. We<br />

want to change that.”<br />

Anxiety disorders are the most common<br />

mental health challenges in the United<br />

States, impacting 54 percent of females and<br />

46 percent of males, with age 7 being the<br />

median age of onset, according to the World<br />

Health Organization. While anxiety disorders<br />

are highly treatable, only one-third of<br />

those suffering receive treatment. Everyone<br />

involved in the development of “Angst” has<br />

a personal experience with anxiety, from the<br />

producers to the interviewees.<br />

“The conversation surrounding mental<br />

health really hits home for me,” said<br />

Michael Phelps. “Many people don’t understand<br />

how debilitating mental illness truly<br />

can be, and even more than that, how common<br />

it is, yet people are afraid to have the<br />

serious discussions about it. I welcomed the<br />

opportunity to be a part of ‘Angst’ to further<br />

the dialogue around mental health and to<br />

help people understand the impact anxiety<br />

has on our mental state and encourage people,<br />

especially kids, to ask for help.”<br />

“Angst” screens in schools and communities<br />

across the world. The IndieFlix original<br />

film is expected to reach more than three<br />

million people around the world, through<br />

25,000 community and school screenings.<br />
