Ohio history

on display

By Andrea Cordle

Southwest Editor

Throughout the year the Grove City

Welcome Center and Museum will spotlight

Ohio history.

Through the month of March, visitors

can stop by the museum to learn about

Simon Kenton, a frontiersman in Ohio

and surrounding states. On display is a

large fiberglass bronze statue of Kenton,

sculpted by Mike Major of Urbana, Ohio.

Major’s piece is based on the original by

American Sculptor John Quincy Adams

Ward.

“I made this in the late 90s after the

smaller sculpture by JQA,” said Major.

Major was contacted about an installation

of artwork in the Grove City Library.

He thought his large sized Simon Kenton

sculpture would be a good fit, but it was

too big for the library. It is now on display

at the Grove City Welcome Center and

Museum.

The sculpture shows Kenton with a

hound dog. According to Major, Kenton

was not known to have a dog, but JQA

Ward thought the piece needed something

extra.

“People love that dog,” said Major.

“This was a case of the artist adding a

point of interest.”

The dog’s name is Shadow.

According to Don Ivers, curator of the

welcome center and museum, Kenton had

a remarkable life. He served in the

Revolution and Northwest Indian War as

well as the War of 1812. He was a friend

of Daniel Boone.

“He saved Boone’s life,” said Ivers.

According to the Ohio History

Connection, Kenton was born in 1755 in

Virginia. After a fight at the age of 16,

Kenton believing he killed a man, fled to

Ohio. After being involved in several conflicts,

Kenton settled in Urbana. He later

Simon Kenton. This statue is on display as part of the Ohio History exhibit.

moved to Zanesfield, Ohio where he died

and was buried in 1836. In 1895, his

remains were moved to Urbana.

Simon Kenton is the namesake of

Kenton, the county seat of Hardin

County. Schools in Springfield and Xenia

are named in his honor. There is also a

Simon Kenton Trail between Springfield

and Bellefontaine.

Along with the Ohio history exhibit

featuring Kenton, is Indian artifacts.

Ivers said the spear heads and hand tools

have been donated to the museum.

The welcome center and museum also

has a fashion exhibit on display through

April. According to Ivers, the oldest piece

of clothing in the exhibit is a coat from

1865, with wooden buttons. There is also

a coat made of black bear fur. The items

on exhibit were donated by local residents.

The Grove City Welcome Center and

Museum is located at 3378 Park Street. It

is open Monday through Friday from 10

a.m. to 4 p.m. with extended hours on

Tuesdays. For more information, go to

206 acres that would be divided into nine

subareas. Most of the subareas would contain

single-family homes with a maximum

of 415 dwellings. One subarea would contain

multi-family homes with a maximum

of 120 units permitted.

The subarea that features the multifamily

homes was the problem for some

council members.

According to the Grove City 2050 plan,

a development guide for future planning,

the area in question calls for low density

housing. Multi-family homes can include

apartments, which is labeled high density

housing.

“Apartments are included in this plan,”

said councilman Ted Berry. “No place in

Grove City 2050 does it say apartments.”

Berry said apartments do not fit that

area.

“Why would you build apartments away

from any type of retail,” asked Berry.

Councilman Steven Robinette said the

development area has a rural flavor.

“This plan seems to be going away from

that,” said Robinette.

Councilwoman Christine Houk said

multi-family homes mean more of a burden

for the local school system.

“This is a huge issue for me,” said Houk.

The development plan does include an

area where a school could be constructed.

However, council members believe there

are too many unanswered questions.

“It could be 10 years before that school

is built,” said Robinette. “We don’t know

what the demand will be in a decade.”

According to City Administrator Chuck

Boso, the developer would sell the property

to the city or the South-Western City

Schools District to build another elementary

school. The plan secures that site and

gives the city a purchase option.

Grove City Mayor Richard “Ike” Stage

assured council that he has met with officials

from the school district and they are

on board with the plan.

Earlier this month, citizens were asked

to attend a town hall meeting about this

large, multi-year development plan. City

officials were on hand, as were officials

from the South-Western City Schools

District and the Ohio Department of

Transportation.

“I think we got through a lot of issues,”

said Wisniewski.

The developer said the proposal offers a

range of housing options and includes

approximately three miles of trails and

open space.

In response to some of the residential

traffic concerns, the developer has agreed

to contribute $150,000 to a traffic signal at

Hawthorne Parkway if it is deemed necessary.

Traffic studies indicate that a traffic

signal is not needed at this time.

The legislation on the Farmstead property

was postpone until the March 4 council

meeting. The meeting will take place at

7 p.m. in City Hall, 4035 Broadway.

Government Focus

Urbancrest lays out in case of emergency plan

By Dedra Cordle

Staff Writer

New safety measures could soon be

enacted in the village of Urbancrest.

At its Feb. 12 regular meeting, village

council discussed the first reading of legislation

that would establish an emergency

preparedness plan as well as the purchase

of a speed capturing sign.

Members of the health and safety committee

presented the first draft of the emergency

preparedness plan in December but

have since made modifications to the proposal.

“They have been modest changes, mostly

having to do with wording,” said councilwoman

Alicia Wiggins.

One of the changes, she said to the council,

had to do with assembling a response

team. She wanted to make it clear that the

response to an emergency, whether it be a

natural disaster or man-made, should be a

team effort rather than solely up to one

individual.

“We have to have multiple people

engaged,” she said.

She included the administration, council

and trained residents among her examples

of team engagement.

In the draft, the health and safety committee

has recommended that residents

volunteer to participate in Franklin

County’s Community Emergency Response

Team (CERT). She said this free program,

which takes place once a week for several

months, trains residents in basis disaster

response skills such as fire safety, light

search and rescue, team organization and

disaster medical operations.

Wiggins said she knows taking part of

the training program might be time consuming

but feels it would be beneficial for

residents to know how to assist in the event

of an emergency.

“It’s something we all need to know,” she

said.

Also discussed was the importance of

setting up social media accounts.

“Our social media presence is no longer

an option but a necessity,” said Wiggins.

She said the village needs to have an

updated website and set up a Facebook

page as well as a Twitter account.

Mayor Joseph Barnes Sr. asked if there

should be a focus on one of those platforms

rather than multiple platforms but

Wiggins said they should utilize all of

them.

“We can use them to get the word out

fast, but Twitter is word limited,” she said.

She went on to say that with Facebook,

they can fully explain what is going on and

active Facebook Live to give residents a

real-time look at current conditions and

warnings.

Barnes said he felt it was important to

reach out to the local television and radio

networks as well.

He added that he liked what was featured

in the draft so far but would like to

see more engagement with local churches

and businesses.

“I think we need to hold meetings with

leaders of our churches and the YMCA,” he

said.

He said they have to get a feel for how

these locations could be used in case residents

need to shower, charge their phones

and other electronic devises or just need a

place to sleep. Barnes also said they should

reach out to the Mid-Ohio Foodbank in the

event that residents need access to food.

Wiggins said the members of the health

and safety committee wanted the emergency

preparedness plan to be a living document

where modifications can be made as

needed.

Council also discussed the purchase of

one speed capturing sign. According to

Wiggins, they would purchase the sign,

which has the capabilities of capturing and

storing data, from Radarsign, LLC at a cost

of $4,570.

There was some debate as to where it

would be located but Wiggins said one of

the best things about this particular sign is

that it can be moved to different locations

throughout the village.

Resident Erika Dobbins-Chatman said

she liked the idea of speed signs as vehicles

often “fly down the street” but wanted to

know if speed bumps could be installed as

well.

Wiggins said they had discussed

installing speed bumps throughout the village

but ultimately decided against it due

to the potential damage to village road

equipment, mainly their snow plows. She

added that the idea, as well as others, are

not off the table for future use.

“I can’t imagine that we cannot come up

with something to help solve the problem,”

she said.

In Education

Repairs and replacements needed at South-Western schools

By Dedra Cordle

Staff Writer

The condition of the windows and entry doors at one

building in the South-Western City Schools District

prompted the board of education to approve a replacement

bid by urgent necessity at the Feb. 11 meeting.

Pick-up and Delivery

“We have the lowest price in town!”

According to Mark Waller, the coordinator of property

services and construction projects, the action was taken

due to the rejection of two bids to replace the doors and

windows at East Franklin Elementary School.

“We received two bids for this project and both of them

exceeded the architect’s estimated cost by 10 percent,”

Waller said. “That excess is an automatic rejection.”

Due to the nature of this project, Waller said it

was imperative that the board not enter into another

bidding process.

“It’s a lengthy process and sometimes it can take

between four and six months for windows to be

delivered,” he said. “We want to get these items

ordered and installed before the start of the new

school year.”

Waller said there is no danger posed to the students

and staff due to the condition of the windows

and doors but there is a need for safety upgrades.

“Some of those doors and windows are originals

from the school, which I think was built in the

1960s,” he said. “They have received a lot of wear and tear

through the years and it is time they are replaced and

brought up to current day safety standards.”

With the urgent necessity approval, the board entered

into a contract with Summit Construction to replace the

windows and entry doors at East Franklin Elementary at

a cost of $422,000. Waller estimates the work will begin

around June 3 and will be completed before the start of the

2019/20 school year.

The board of education also approved a bid to the JB

Roofing Company, A Tecta America Company, to partially

replace the roof at Central Crossing High School. The cost

of the project, which will replace several “low-slope” sections

of the main building, is $217,770.

Last month, the board approved a complete roof

replacement at East Franklin Elementary and Grove City

and Westland high schools at a cost of $5.3 million. Waller

said the work on each of those projects is slated to begin on

June 3 and be completed in time for the start of the new

school year.

Supporting the Pink Ribbon Girls

Before sporting events, these students at Grove City High School traditionally wear crimson and blue to

show off their spirit. But that tradition changed on Feb. 8 when they sported pink hues to show off their

spirit for another cause. Organized by junior Mary Gilbert, shown second from the left in the second row,

the student section donned the lighter colors to support the Pink Ribbon Girls, a local non-profit that provides

free meals, housecleaning, rides to treatment and peer support for individuals with breast or gynecological

cancers. Gilbert said half of the proceeds at the door, and half from ribbon and food sales, will

go directly to the organization. For more information about the Pink Ribbon Girls, visit their website at

Pavement repairs

By Dedra Cordle

Staff Writer

Two stations within the Jackson Township Fire Department

are slated to receive surface upgrades.

At the Feb. 19 trustee’s meeting, the board approved a resolution

to advertise for bids for pavement and concrete replacement

at Stations 201 and 202.

The conditions of the lots, said service director Rex Blair, are

porous and in desperate need of repair.

“They’re in pretty bad shape right now,” he said.

The work at Station 201, which is located on Grove City Road,

calls for the replacement of concrete in the front of the building

and the resurfacing and repair to the parking lot area. The work

at Station 202, which is located on Hoover Road, calls for the

replacement of concrete at the rear of the building and the resurfacing

and repair to the parking lot area.

The estimated cost for the work at Station 201 is $60,000 while

the cost for the work at Station 202 has a rough estimate of

$165,000. Blair said the high cost is partially due to the concrete

work as the concrete has to be at least 8 to 10 inches thick to withstand

the weight of the fire equipment.

According to Township Administrator Shane Farnsworth, the

timeline for the review and acceptance of bids will be within the

next two months. If all goes as planned and one of the bids are

accepted, Blair said he would like the work to start in mid-October

before the weather conditions turn unfavorable. He added that it

would take at least four to six weeks to complete each project.

The township administration building on Hoover Road will also

receive resurfacing to its parking lot. The resolution to start the

work, as well as the funding, was approved last year but

inclement weather caused multiple delays. Farnsworth said that

project is slated to take place after the spring clean-up on May 4.

Pet Corner

Pets of the week

Mamas is such a

sweet heart. She is so

wiggly and adorable.

This 7-year-old pit

bull mix loves attention

and is very

social. She loves

everyone she meets.

She enjoys exploring

and walking, and

can’t wait to adventure with you. She would

need to be the only female dog in the home

but she would do well with a male dog where

she can be the boss. She loves to cuddle with

her human friends. Adopt Mamas from the

Franklin County Dog Shelter.

FYI: 614-525-3647 or www.franklincountydogs.com

Marcus is a wiggler.

He is a bouncy,

happy guy who is

excited about everything.

This 2-year-old

pit bull mix would love

a family with the time

and patience to help

him learn his basic

manners and commands.

He can’t wait to find his forever home

so he can run and play all day with his new

favorite people. He likes to play with other

dogs, but is a little overwhelming for some. He

needs to meet any potential furry friends

before adoption. Marcus does have some

medical issues that need addressed so a person

or family with an established vet is recommended.

Meet him at the Franklin County Dog

Shelter.

FYI: 614-525-3647 or www.franklincountydogs.com

Gracie is a beautiful young lady who is looking for her forever home.

She is a bit shy at first and will take some time to warm up, so she’ll

need lots of patience and love. Gracie loves having her belly rubbed

and she loves to snuggle. She would make a fantastic addition to any

family. Gracie is up for adoption through Friends for Life Animal Haven.

FYI: www.fflah.org

www.columbusmessenger.com

These furry friends are available

for adoption at local

rescues and shelters

Maude is being

retired and is looking

for a new home. She

is a 26-year-old

Percheron mare who

worked closely with

the public for 23

years. She is comfortable

pulling farm

machinery and still actively works. However,

as her age has increased, the days when she

is able to pull a plow all day have passed. She

is a steady, reliable horse and could easily

pull a small wagon or do light farm chores.

Adopt Maude through Friends for Life Animal

Haven.

FYI: www.fflah.org

“Heinz 57” boy

who loves everyone.

He’s such a laid back

“Isn’t it Romantic”

is charming and cute

The Reel Deal - By Dedra Cordle

I was afraid that “Isn’t it Romantic” would be like “I Feel

Pretty,” a movie about a beautiful woman who has no confidence

and only gains said confidence through trauma to the brain. Then,

along the way, her dream man falls in love with her and she

miraculously recovers from her brain trauma and believes his love

was fake since those ugly clouds of self-doubt have suddenly

resurfaced.

I think it is safe to say that we, the general public who often

goes to see female-led comedies and romantic comedies, are tired

of these tropes. You can address the lack of confidence in a person

without being bonked in the head and discovering their self-worth

in the aftermath. But I digress because “Isn’t it Romantic” is not

like that at all. Yes, it does have transformative brain trauma and

it does deal with a lack of self-confidence but it does so in a sly,

meta way. This is a movie within a movie within a parody movie.

It pokes fun at common, and sometimes dangerous, tropes in

female-led comedies and romantic comedies while being both

comedic and somewhat romantic.

It begins with the introduction of Natalie (Alexandra Kis), a

young Australian girl who loves romantic comedies. While watching

“Pretty Woman,” her mother (a delightful and underutilized

Jennifer Saunders) catches that dreamy look in her eyes and cynically

tells her that love doesn’t happen for people who look like

them and that everything she has been told about love is a lie. It’s

played for laughs, and it gets them, but you can see that message

sink in through the young girl’s brain as she furrows her brow

throughout the rest of “Pretty Woman.”

It then flashes forward 25 years to where an adult Natalie

(Rebel Wilson) is an architect living in New York City. But this

New York City is not like the idealized versions, neither is

Natalie’s life. Though she has a great job, she lives in a cramped

apartment with a limited wardrobe and a dog who doesn’t listen

to her. Meanwhile, at her workplace, the office is equally as

cramped and unflatteringly lit and she has coworkers that don’t

listen to her either. After losing the courage to speak up at a pitch

meeting, she spies her assistant Whitney (Betty Gilpin) watching

a romantic comedy and unleashes a tangent about the harmful

tropes of that genre. That scene, of course, is shown via montage.

At the end of the day, on her way back home to the dog that

doesn’t listen to her, she meets a seemingly pleasant fellow who

shows interest in her. She is not surprised when he turns out to

only want her purse and is knocked unconscious during the ensuing

subway fight. When she wakes, her life has been changed: the

city is clean and the shops are filled with love themes, her apartment

has been transformed into a luxurious abode, her dog has

begun to listen to her and she has a new best friend (Brandon

Scott Jones) on demand. To confuse her even more, she draws the

attention of Blake (Liam Hemsworth), the obnoxious billionaire

who dismissed her presence in the pitch meeting, who is now

smitten with this “beguiling creature.” Fearing that she will be

trapped in this horrible romantic comedy nightmare forever, she

tries to follow the stereotypes laid out in romantic comedies of

yore but finds that it is easier said than done.

“Isn’t it Romantic” is and isn’t the traditional romantic comedy.

It follows in the same beats as previous ones (the better ones, that

is) while scolding tropes without being overly mean or cynical

about it. You get the sense that the people involved in this film —

from the actors to the writers and even the director — love romantic

comedies but are able to acknowledge how harmful and unrealistic

their messaging can be.

I wasn’t expecting much from “Isn’t it Romantic” but I came

away from this film utterly charmed by the characters, its actors

and even the message. It’s not a must-see at the theaters, but it’s

a good watch for those looking for something cute, funny and simple.

Academy Awards are sure to be hot mess this year

The ceremony for the 91st annual

Academy Awards has yet to take place but

the fact remains that this is nothing short

of a hot mess already. The drama surrounding

the event began last summer

when the governing body of the academic of

motion picture arts and sciences decided to

add an “Outstanding Achievement in

Popular Film” category to the broadcast

this year. This change, explained the

board, was to honor those films that would

have otherwise been ignored by its snootiest

members (paraphrased) and invite a

new audience to its dwindling televised

audience (paraphrased). In the end, the

board cancelled its plans and it remains to

be seen whether this category will be featured

in future telecasts.

Shortly after this debacle, the Kevin

Hart debacle began and then came the

decision to do away with hosts.

Then, just the other week, the board

announced four categories — cinematography,

film editing, live action short and

makeup and hairstyling — would be presented

during commercial breaks to save

time. After a celebrity-filled outpouring of

anger, the four categories are now back to

being televised.

It’s common for some drama to take

place at the actual ceremony but the

behind the scenes drama this year has and

will put everything else to shame. I had

debated on whether to watch the telecast

as I am not terribly impressed by the nominated

films, but I am now compelled to see

if the mess spills over on live television. So,

whether you join me in watching a possible

train wreck or not, here are some of my

predictions for the major categories — all of

which will definitely be televised.

Best Supporting Actress

Amy Adams (Vice)

Marina de Tavira (Roma)

Regina King (If Beale Street Could Talk

Emma Stone (The Favourite)

Rachel Weisz (The Favourite)

Prediction: Regina King is a presumptive

front-runner for her portrayal as a

mother intent on proving the innocence of

her daughter’s incarcerated love in “If

Beale Street Could Talk.” The one thing

that gives me pause, however, is the fact

that she was not nominated for a Screen

Actors Guild award and actors make up a

majority of the voting academy. Hot on the

veteran actor’s heels is Rachel Weisz for

her role as Queen Anne’s childhood friend

and secret lover in “The Favourite.”

Though Weisz is trending upward, I predict

King is going to take home the gold.

Best Supporting Actor

Mahershala Ali (Green Book)

Adam Driver (BlacKkKlansman)

Sam Elliott (A Star is Born)

Richard E. Grant (Can You Ever

The Reel Deal - By Dedra Cordle

Forgive Me?)

Sam Rockwell (Vice)

Prediction: Like the previous category,

Mahershala Ali is the presumptive frontrunner

for his role as pianist Don Shirley

in Green Book but unlike that category no

other nominees are hot on his heels. Ali is

going to receive his second supporting actor

Oscar in three years.

Best Actress

Yalitza Aparicio (Roma)

Glenn Close (The Wife)

Olivia Coleman (The Favourite)

Lady Gaga (A Star is Born)

Melissa McCarthy (Can You Ever

Forgive Me?)

Prediction: This category is intriguing

for many reasons. Yalitza Aparicio is the

first indigenous woman to be nominated for

Best Actress, personal favorite Melissa

McCarthy delivered a nuanced performance

as talented writer and famed forger

Lee Israel, and Olivia Coleman, Lady Gaga

and Glenn Close have all battled it out at

various award shows. But I think the recipient

this year will be Close for her portrayal

as the supportive wife of a famed author

who has some hidden secrets.

Best Actor

Christian Bale (Vice)

Bradley Cooper (A Star is Born)

Willem Dafoe (At Eternity’s Gate)

www.columbusmessenger.com

Rami Malek (Bohemian Rhapsody)

Viggo Mortensen (Green Book)

Prediction: This category is a little

unpredictable. It is going to be between

Christian Bale for his performance as former

Vice President Dick Cheney and Rami

Malek for his struggle with prosthetic teeth

while portraying Queen front man Freddie

Mercury in “Bohemian Rhapsody.” I think

Malek is going to take home the statue but

put those fake teeth on his mantle instead.

Best Picture

BlacKkKlansman

Black Panther

Bohemian Rhapsody

The Favourite

Green Book

Roma

A Star is Born

Vice

Prediction: In my opinion, it’s between

“The Favourite,” “Green Book” and “Roma”

for the top prize and the academy is going

to go the safest route and choose the working

class drama “Roma” despite it being a

“Netflix film.”

The 91st annual Academy Awards ceremony

will be televised Feb. 24 on ABC

starting at 8 p.m. As they say on decorative

pillows and throws ‘Bless this Mess.’

The National Trade Association

we belong to has

purchased the following

classifieds. Determining

the value of their service

or product is advised by

this publication. In order

to avoid misunderstandings,

some advertisers do

not offer “employment”

but rather supply the

readers with manuals, directories

and other materials

designed to help

their clients establish mail

order selling and other

businesses at home. Under

NO circumstance

should you send any

money in advance or give

the client your checking,

license ID or credit card

numbers. Also beware of

ads that claim to guarantee

loans regardless of

credit and note that if a

credit repair company

does business only over

the phone it’s illegal to request

any money before

delivering its service. All

funds are based in US

dollars. Toll Free numbers

may or may not
