Sheriff to retire in March; acting sheriff named

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

After more than 14 years as sheriff and a total

of 37 years with the Sheriff’s Office, Madison

County Sheriff Jim Sabin is retiring.

Sabin made the official announcement at the

county commissioners’ office on Feb. 12. His last

day on the job is March 15.

“It’s been a blast. It’s been fun,” Sabin said with

tears in his eyes. “This county has been so good to

me.”

A little less than two years remain on Sabin’s

current term as sheriff. Sabin recommended that

the commissioners appoint Lt. John Swaney as

acting sheriff effective March 15. After that, it will

be up to the Madison County Republican Central

Committee to select the person who will complete

the term. Sabin said he is recommending that the

committee choose Swaney.

“A major consideration in my retirement was to

ensure my successor would maintain the high

standards and dedication due to the citizens of

Madison County,” Sabin said. “Over a year ago, I

made it known that I would be retiring at some

time in the future. Lt. John Swaney and Lt. Eric

Semler have responded, determining among themselves,

if given the opportunity, John could confidently

serve as sheriff while Eric would be his

second in command.”

Combined, Swaney and Semler have more than

40 years of service to the Sheriff’s Office.

Over the past year, Swaney has worked with

Sabin to realign the office for the future transition.

He has worked on budget, personnel and operations

tasks. Sabin has introduced him to duties

and obligations that are the sole responsibility of

the sheriff.

“(Swaney) knows the county. He knows the people

of the county. He knows what they expect. I am

confident he will serve in a professional and dedicated

manner,” Sabin said.

“I am very blessed to have got to work under

Sheriff Sabin,” Swaney said. “His shoes are impossible

to fill.”

Commissioner Dr. Tony Xenikis said Swaney

was sure to make Sabin proud. Commissioner

Mark Forrest said the same.

“I know you see it as big shoes to fill but we

know you can make you’re on big shoes to fill,” Forrest

said.

Commissioner David Hunter asked Semler

what he thought of the coming change.

Semler said that he and Swaney working together

will make the task of following in Sabin’s

footsteps easier.

“It will take two of us,” Semler said.

Hunter thanked Sabin for his service, saying,

“We sure do appreciate everything you’ve done for

this county.”

The commissioners voted unanimously to appoint

Swaney as acting sheriff effective March 15.

London Fire & EMS acquires former EMD site

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

The London Fire and Emergency Medical

Services (EMS) Department now owns

the former Madison County Emergency

Medical Department (EMD) station at 40 E.

Center St.

The city acquired the property as part of

a division of assets following its split from

the EMD last year. The property transfer

took place on Feb. 1.

The plan, said Chief Todd Eades, is to

turn the facility into a satellite fire and

EMS station that will be staffed around the

clock. It will be home to one fire vehicle and

one EMS squad vehicle. The department’s

main station at East High Street will have

three fire vehicles and two EMS vehicles.

gives us a fire piece down there which is

something we’ve been wanting to do for a

long, long time,” Eades said.

The station is located south of the railroad

tracks that bisect the city.

The department has inspected and assessed

the building to determine what

needs to be done to make it operational as

a fire and EMS station.

“No major changes are needed,” Eades

said.

The first priorities are to get phone, Internet

Downtown parking permits possible

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

London city council is looking to offer overnight parking permits

for downtown residents.

Currently, it is illegal for anyone to park their cars between 3

a.m. and 5 a.m. on Main Street between High Street and Center

Street and on High Street between Union Street and Madison Road.

Those hours are reserved for street cleaning when necessary.

“I can move better and sleep better. I am in

a much better mood. I can do more with my

www.dwyerchiropractic.com

Legislation introduced at the Feb. 7 council meeting would allow

anyone who lives in the downtown district to apply for a permit to

park overnight. Anyone without a permit would be restricted to

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

The permits would be free and good for 90 days at a time. Applications

would be available through the police department. Applicants

would need to supply their name, address, make and model

of vehicle, and telephone number.

The permits would not be in effect during street sweeping, snow

emergencies, festivals, special events, and any other time the city

notifies permit holders the permits are not in effect.

Mayor Patrick Closser said the permits would benefit downtown

residents and the city. Residents would be able to park closer to their

homes. The city would have a way to contact residents who need to

move their cars during times when the permits are not in effect.

The proposed legislation will be up for a second reading at council’s

Feb. 21 meeting.

Council also held a first reading on the transfer of funds for various

departments’ capital expenses for the year. They include:

• $510,000 for the street department for storm sewer and road

work, as well as roof repair at the department’s facility;

• $312,000 for the fire and EMS department for lease payments

on EMS start-up equipment, technology upgrades and fire gear; and

• $150,000 for the parks and recreation department to go toward

installation of a splash pad at the city pool. According to

Closser, the project will cost between $270,000 and $310,000.

Council approved $90,000 in capital funds for the police department

to purchase two vehicles.

In other action, council:

• started the process for annexing the land where the street department’s

new headquarters sit. The four acres are part of Union

Township. The street department moved last year from its shared

space with the fire department to the former Ohio Department of

Transportation (ODOT) garage at 1460 State Rte. 42.

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

E. Second St. The building was home to council chambers, the

mayor’s office and the safety-service director’s office. Those facilities

are now located at city hall at 20 S. Walnut St.

• gave Joe Mosier, safety-service director, permission to enter

into a contract with ODOT for resurfacing of State Route 142 between

Keny Boulevard in London and the West Jefferson village

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

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

Group will focus on downtown

An independent agency representing

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

The city of London now has a Historic Downtown Revitalization

Commission.

On Feb. 7, city council approved Mayor Patrick

Closser’s appointments to the commission. The fivemember

board is made up of London residents and individuals

who own buildings or businesses in the

downtown area. Members are Jackie Bryant Call, Todd

Fisher, David Mabe, Joe Russell and Shannon Treynor.

Each is serving a two-year term.

The commission will work with business owners and

property owners to:

• create a list of needed renovations in the historic

district;

• develop strategies to attract business;

• identify policies or regulations that interfere with

business;

• create a strategy to deploy targeted resources; and

• bring recommendations to city council for consideration.

Appointments to the commission have been a long

time coming. Council approved creation of the group in

2015. At the same time, they approved creation of a Historic

Downtown Revitalization Fund.

Money for the fund comes from collection of delinquent

income taxes. The fund is set up to receive 100

percent of the first $50,000 collected by the Central Collection

Agency, a company the city hired to pursue

delinquent taxes. After that, 50 percent of the money

collected will go to the fund. Distributions to the fund

began in 2015; it currently stands at $12,081.

The commission’s first meeting is tentatively set for

5:30 p.m. March 12 in the council conference room at

city hall, 20 S. Walnut St.

Other Appointments

Council also approved the following appointments

recommended by Closser:

• Donald Hawkins to the Board of Zoning Appeals,

five-year term;

• Christie Adkins to the Playground and Public

Recreation Commission, three-year term;

• Phil Taylor to the Historic District Review Board,

three-year term; and

• Gary Peters, Tom Cox and Steve Lelonek to the Income

Tax Board of Review for two-, four- and six-year

terms, respectively.

PRESIDENT'S DAY

2019

This coming Monday, February 18, 2019 is

President's Day here in America—a day set aside to

honor two of our most famous Presidents: George

Washington, “The Father of Our Country,” and Abraham

Lincoln, “The Great Emancipator.” Let’s take time on

that day to be thankful not only for these two truly great

Americans, but for all of our leaders who have helped to

make our Nation what it is today.

Free tax prep help in London

AARP Foundation Tax-Aide volunteers are offering

free tax preparation at the Madison County Emergency

through mid-April.

Appointments are required. Hours are 9 a.m.-3 p.m.

Mondays and Wednesdays. Call (740) 852-3001 for an

to schedule appointments as soon as possible.

While Tax-Aide’s focus is on low- to moderate-income

senior citizens, the service is available to anyone, regardless

of income or age.

Volunteers certified and trained by the Internal Revenue

Service are available to:

• prepare and file U.S., Ohio and, where applicable,

school district tax returns;

she stated.

In a phone interview on Feb. 12, Vansickle said that,

like Ward, she believes council and the administration

should be doing more to investigate the loan agreement

for the water plant and finding ways to alleviate the financial

burden on residents.

Also, both Vansickle and Ward allege that village officials

are not following Ohio Revised Code or Roberts

Rules of Order for running meetings in some instances.

While she is no longer on council, Vansickle stated,

“I will not give up on helping the residents and standing

up for them.”

Burns’s resignation letter simply stated, “Due to reason

too numerous to list at this time, I am resigning

from my position on village council of Mount Sterling,

• complete tax forms involving itemized deductions,

education expenses and credits, and cancellation of

debt; and

• prepare and file simple self-employment returns.

Documents taxpayers should bring with them to a

Tax-Aide appointment include:

• driver’s license or photo ID;

• Social Security card;

• last year’s tax return;

• income statements, such as W-2 forms from work,

1099 retirement income forms from pensions and Social

Security, brokerage account statements, and interest

statements from banks;

• Expense statements, such as 1098 form showing

mortgage interest paid, forms for educational expenses,

church and charity donation receipts, and a list of medical

expenses.

Last year, 1,500 volunteers prepared 80,000 tax returns

at 285 locations across Ohio. A person does not

service is free.

Burns said she planned to issue a more detailed statement

in the near future.

About the resignations, Martin said, “This came, not

as a shock, but a little of a surprise about how it was

done. However, we will keep moving forward, we still

have a team and will be just fine. I guarantee it.”

“I am anxious to get these seats filled,” said David

Timmons, council president pro tem. “We have important

legislation and positions we need to fill. We have

issues with potholes, need to hire an administrator and

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

these seats filled quickly so we can get to work.”

In addition to Timmons, the remaining members of

council are Lowell Anderson and Rebecca Martin.

Anyone interested in filling the vacancies on council

can submit a resumé and/or letter of interest to

London wrestlers face tough opponent at state

By Pat Donahue

Saff Photographer

London High School’s wrestling team

competed in the 7th Annual Ohio High

School Athletic Association state wrestling

dual team tournament on Feb. 10 at St.

John Arena in Columbus.

London wrestlers have qualified for individual

competition at the state level in

past years, but this is the first time the program

has qualified for the team competition.

The Red Raiders made it to the team

contest by winning their Div. II regional

tournament on Feb. 2; in the final round,

they beat Miami Trace, who made it to the

state tournament the previous two years

At the state competition, the top eight

teams in each of three divisions took to the

mats. London faced the top seed, wrestling

powerhouse St. Paris Graham, who had

taken home top honors in the previous six

state team tourneys.

London battled in all 14 weight classes

with highlights coming in the way of wins

by 170-pound junior Darian Huff, who beat

Graham sophomore Eric Thomas 5-4, and

145-pound freshman Antwaun Burns who

claimed a technical fall with a 21-6 victory

over Graham sophomore Jack Mefford.

and went on to beat Sandusky Perkins 58-

13 in the semi-finals and Aurora 38-24 in the

finals to claim their seventh state dual title.

After the match, London Coach Richard

Burns called the tournament an “awesome

experience.” He praised his team for putting

in the training and hard work necessary to

make it to the state stage.

said, “To be your best, you have to face the

best.”

Burns said he is extremely proud of his

wrestlers and looks forward to the chance

that some of them will qualify for the state

individual tournament in March.

The goal line is in site for the Jonathan

Alder field turf project.

District residents Joel Maynard and

Rayce Robinson initiated fundraising a little

over two years ago to replace the grass on

the high school’s primary athletic field with

synthetic turf. At the Feb. 11 school board

meeting, they announced they had surpassed

the $510,000 mark.

Their goal is to raise $550,000 by April 1

so that a contract can be signed with a turf

company, allowing the installation to start

late this spring and finish up prior to the

start of next school year.

“It certainly hasn’t been the easiest thing

on the planet,” Robinson said of the task of

fundraising, but added that partnership

with the Jonathan Alder Athletic Boosters

and the school board’s public endorsement of

the project has been tremendously helpful.

In the last two months alone, the committee

has raised more than $240,000. One

donor, whose name will be released at a

later date, pledged $150,000. Several have

donated at the $50,000, $25,000 and

$10,000 levels. The district’s Music Boosters

recently donated $6,000. The overall

fundraising total also includes in-kind donations.

All funding for the project is coming

from private donations. No taxpayer or

school district money is involved.

Maynard and Robinson said the new turf

will benefit the school several ways. Being

synthetic, it will hold up to more use than

its natural counterpart, they said. That

means the field won’t be restricted to use

only during football, lacrosse, and boys’ and

girls’ soccer games and marching band performances.

Those groups and others in the

district will be able to use it for practices

and scrimmages, too. Fewer games and

events will be cancelled due to weather,

Maynard added, and the district should

save money because the field will require

less maintenance.

Maynard and Robinson also said the

newly resurfaced field likely will generate

revenue for the district in the form of usage

fees for playoff games, marching band contests,

and other special events coordinated

by outside organizations. They see it serving

as an asset to the community, as well, providing

a playing field for area youth athletic

leagues and the like.

“It’s definitely a game changer,” Maynard

said.

Donations to the project can be made online

at www.alderfieldturf.com or by check

to the Jonathan Alder Athletic Boosters,

P.O. Box 212, Plain City, OH 43064. All donations

are tax deductible. For more information,

Jonathan Alder hosting screening of ‘Angst’

IndieFlix, an independent online streaming

platform, along with its non-profit arm,

the IndieFlix Foundation, is sparking conversation

about anxiety through screenings

of its new documentary, “Angst: Raising

State Farm General Insurance Company, Bloomington, IL

At 6:30 p.m. Feb, 20, the Jonathan Alder

Local School District will hold a screening

of the documentary at Jonathan Alder High

School. The event will feature a viewing of

the 55-minute film, followed by a panel discussion

moderated by Jennifer Korn, director

of student services, with special guests

Rachel Sorrell of Nationwide Children’s

Hospital, Dr. John Adams II of Memorial

Health, and Pastor Blaine Keene of Journey

Community Church.

Producers Scilla Andreen and Karin Gornick

have one goal: to start a global conversation

and raise awareness around anxiety.

Through candid interviews, they tell the stories

of children dealing with anxiety, its impact

on their lives and relationships, and how

they have found solutions and hope.

The film also includes an interview with

Olympic swimmer and mental health advocate

Michael Phelps and discussions with

mental health experts about the causes of

anxiety and its sociological effects, as well

as the help, resources and tools available to

address the condition.

In addition to the film, a virtual reality

component allows users to experience a

panic attack first-hand, further building

awareness and empathy for anxiety sufferers.

The virtual reality component has been

developed with support from Google.

While “Angst” documents the struggles

some people have with anxiety, it also reveals

their hope for the future. Noah, a

teenager in the film, describes it this way:

“Anxiety doesn’t define me. It’s not just a

curse; it also gives me strength.”

“Everybody needs to know that anxiety

disorders are real, common and treatable instead

of viewing them as a personal choice

or something to be ashamed of,” said Dr.

Jerry Bubrick, senior director of Anxiety

Disorders Center, Child Mind Institute.

“Getting help early is crucial in giving people

the tools they need to feel better. We just

need to start the conversation.”

“We felt it was important to make a

movie that could raise awareness to open up

the conversation and provide hope,” said

Andreen, IndieFlix CEO and “Angst” producer.

“So many people struggle with anxiety

and have trouble talking about it. We

want to change that.”

Anxiety disorders are the most common

mental health challenges in the United

States, impacting 54 percent of females and

46 percent of males, with age 7 being the

median age of onset, according to the World

Health Organization. While anxiety disorders

are highly treatable, only one-third of

those suffering receive treatment. Everyone

involved in the development of “Angst” has

a personal experience with anxiety, from the

producers to the interviewees.

“The conversation surrounding mental

health really hits home for me,” said

Michael Phelps. “Many people don’t understand

how debilitating mental illness truly

can be, and even more than that, how common

it is, yet people are afraid to have the

serious discussions about it. I welcomed the

opportunity to be a part of ‘Angst’ to further

the dialogue around mental health and to

help people understand the impact anxiety

has on our mental state and encourage people,

especially kids, to ask for help.”

“Angst” screens in schools and communities

across the world. The IndieFlix original

film is expected to reach more than three

million people around the world, through

25,000 community and school screenings.
