PC might<br />

take tax<br />

collection<br />

in-house<br />

By Michael Williamson<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Plain City is looking to change their tax<br />

collection system.<br />

At a work session on <strong>March</strong> 11, council<br />

discussed the possibility of changing from<br />

the current RITA (Regional Income Tax<br />

Agency) system to an in-house collection<br />

system. The village looked at two factors:<br />

monetary and non-monetary benefits.<br />

“If we were to bring it in-house, strictly<br />

from a monetary, budget standpoint, it<br />

would still be cheaper at least at the current<br />

collection rate of RITA,” said Village Administrator<br />

Nathan Cahall. “Communities,<br />

by and large, who have separated from<br />

RITA do find an uptick in their net collections.”<br />

He added that the non-monetary benefits<br />

had mostly to do with the collection<br />

being done locally, by people in the community.<br />

If the village does take the process inhouse,<br />

they will need to add the position of<br />

tax administrator.<br />

“Having it local provides a little more<br />

fairness and equity for our taxpayers,” Cahall<br />

said. “We can ensure that everyone is<br />

paying their fair share.”<br />

If the village decides to go in this direction,<br />

they must give RITA a six-month notice<br />

ahead of the split.<br />

Also during the work session, council discussed<br />

changes coming to the village if the<br />

results of the 2020 Census designate the village<br />

a city. If the numbers show a population<br />

of 5,000 or more, the status will change.<br />

City status would require three new positions:<br />

city auditor, city treasurer and city<br />

attorney. This could mean a $300,000 increase<br />

in staffing costs.<br />

City status also would require the forma-<br />

Jackson gets<br />

37 years to<br />

life in prison<br />

By Andrew Garrett<br />

Staff Writer<br />

London resident Tevin Jackson, 25, was<br />

sentenced to a combined prison term of 37<br />

years to life on <strong>March</strong> 3 in the <strong>Madison</strong><br />

County Court of Common Pleas.<br />

Jackson was convicted of the murder of<br />

24-year-old Justin Coffey after a five-day<br />

jury trial in February. In addition to the<br />

murder charge, Jackson was found guilty of<br />

felonious assault and aggravated burglary.<br />

Judge Eamon Costello also found Jackson<br />

The convictions emanate from a soured<br />

song at the bluegrass jam.<br />

By Michael Williamson<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Making noise is not something people<br />

often associate with a public library, but<br />

that’s just what visitors are encouraged to<br />

do during Plain City Public Library’s bluegrass<br />

jam sessions.<br />

On <strong>March</strong> 6, instrument-toting musicians<br />

made their way to the library to join<br />

in on the second official jam session, held<br />

in the library’s back room.<br />

“I had been thinking of doing an event<br />

for those wanting to play guitar,” said<br />

Shane Hoffman, the library’s technology<br />

services manager. “I read online that there<br />

was some interest around playing bluegrass<br />

music and thought this might be the<br />

thing to do.”<br />

The first official jam kicked off on Jan.<br />

16 and drew a small crowd of players and<br />

audience members. With the positive response,<br />

Hoffman said he considered doing<br />

it more frequently.<br />

“There’s an event similar in Marysville,<br />

so we didn’t want to interfere with that,”<br />

See BLUEGRASS page 2<br />

to rob them of cash and marijuana, according<br />

to authorities.<br />

All four men were shot in the ensuing altercation,<br />

with Coffey and Benson receiving<br />

fatal wounds. Jackson, who claimed to have<br />

shot Benson twice in self-defense, was acquitted<br />

of the resultant aggravated murder<br />

charge.<br />

While Jackson did not physically shoot<br />

Coffey, he was charged with his murder due<br />

to the fact that under Ohio law, a death resulting<br />

of another person while in the commission<br />

of certain violent felonies qualifies<br />

as murder.<br />

Defense attorney Jon Paul Rion argued<br />

that sentences for the murder and aggravated<br />

burglary convictions should be<br />

merged, thereby considerably shortening<br />

Jackson’s overall prison sentence. He also<br />

mentioned Jackson’s troubled childhood as<br />

something worthy of consideration.<br />

Rion argued that murder was not Jackson’s<br />

intent that evening and that a distinction<br />

should be made in sentencing between<br />

his client and a “cold-blooded killer.”<br />

Costello was not swayed by Rion’s argu-<br />

The <strong>Madison</strong> County commissioners declared <strong>March</strong> as Developmental Disabilities Month. On hand were<br />

representatives from Fairhaven School: (front row, from left) Fairhaven students Jake Kellestad, Gracie Heller<br />

and Kenzie Kovalcik; (back row) commissioners Mark Forrest and Dr. Tony Xenikis; Fairhaven staffers,<br />

Melissa Glover, service coordinator, Hope Smith, transition coordinator, Becky Rader, intervention specialist,<br />

Mackenzie Garrison, behavior support specialist, Denise Zerkle, health services coordinator, and Mike Mast,<br />

director of student services; and commissioner David Hunter. In the proclamation, the commissioners urged<br />

citizens to get to know someone with a disability, learn what that person has to offer, and recognize that<br />

“Support Matters.” The proclamation encouraged community support of full access to education, housing,<br />

employment and recreational activities for people with disabilities.<br />

“Very friendly and professional group of doctors and staff. Thanks to Dr. Heather & Dr. Penny I can<br />

now walk and stand without burning and pain down my leg and into my feet. Also was able to cancel<br />

my sons tonsil surgery thanks to the care they have given him. He has never been healthier since<br />

beginning routine care with them. Love, love, love them!” C.M.<br />

ment.<br />

“You’ve been down this road before,” he said to Jackson. “You<br />

know the risks when you engage in this type of behavior.”<br />

Costello ruled against any sentencing merger, deciding that<br />

Jackson’s sentences should run consecutively. He cited Ohio case<br />

law for his decision.<br />

He also cited Jackson’s lengthy criminal history which began at<br />

age 10. That history included a dozen arrests as a juvenile and<br />

adult.<br />

Costello said Jackson was at high risk for repeating criminal activity.<br />

Jackson’s lengthy rap sheet includes various charges for theft<br />

and assault, attempted burglary, receiving stolen property, criminal<br />

damaging, and 16 probation violations, as well as a previous 15-<br />

month stint in the penitentiary. Jackson was on probation at the<br />

time of the January 2018 incident.<br />

Other factors in Costello’s decision included the fact that the<br />

crime had a high potential for causing harm to innocent people, as<br />

the shoot-out took place in a crowded apartment complex. He noted<br />

there were very real physical and psychological consequences for<br />

the victims and their families.<br />

Benson’s sister, Tina Ouelette, spoke of the grief at the loss of<br />

her brother.<br />

“He (Jackson) took something priceless from me and my family,”<br />

she said, addressing the court. “I hope Tevin can live with his actions,<br />

because we all have to.”<br />

About the judge’s decision, <strong>Madison</strong> County Prosecutor Steve<br />

Pronai said, “I think the sentence is commensurate with his actions.<br />

Two people died as a result of those actions.”<br />

tion of a commission of 15 volunteer residents to explore the need<br />

to draft a charter. The body would meet in public and decide<br />

whether to create a new charter and, if so, present the recommendation<br />

to council.<br />

“At that point in time, council has the opportunity to put that<br />

on the ballot, and the voters get a second bite at the apple to decide<br />

whether or not they want to adopt that charter,” Cahall said. “A<br />

charter would be a way for the community to start out with a blank<br />

slate and organize new procedures.”<br />

Council plans to have the list of 15 people by the second regular<br />

meeting in April.<br />

Other work session action included:<br />

• A discussion on the changing of concessions at the Plain City<br />

Pool. The current vendor has opted not to renew contracts, so village<br />

officials are looking at ways to handle concessions for the upcoming<br />

season.<br />

• The bid opening date for the new municipal building has been<br />

delayed a week. The village is looking at a possible $100,000 in furnishing<br />

costs and $100,000 or less in technology needs, on top of<br />

the general bid amount.<br />

he said. “So we settled on doing it twice a month.”<br />

Sessions are held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. the first and third<br />

Wednesdays of the month, and musicians are encouraged to participate<br />

however they feel comfortable.<br />

“There are no restrictions on instruments or anything. People<br />

have brought acoustic guitars, banjos, mandolins, fiddles, ukuleles<br />

and even an upright bass,” Hoffman added. “Some of the people who<br />

come also bring extra instruments for those interested in playing.”<br />

There is no set structure, setlist, or group of musicians. Visitors<br />

interested in playing can bring ideas or song suggestions and the<br />

group will give them a try.<br />

“We want people to have fun and play music,” Hoffman said. “We<br />

like to say it’s ‘all talent or no talent’ and anyone and everyone is<br />

welcome.”<br />

Complaints continue about water bill increase<br />

By Andrew Garrett<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Mount Sterling village council continues<br />

to wade through water and wastewater<br />

problems. They dedicated nearly their entire<br />

<strong>March</strong> 11 meeting to these two issues.<br />

Residents continue to complain about the<br />

hike in their water bills, according to utilities<br />

clerk, Misty Vance. At a minimum,<br />

households in the village are paying $82<br />

each month for water. This includes the first<br />

1,000 gallons of water, she said.<br />

The increase in the monthly bills is not a<br />

water rate increase, but a debt fee to cover<br />

the cost of the new water plant that was<br />

sanctioned by a previous council, Mayor<br />

Billy Martin said.<br />

The mayor also mentioned that he is not<br />

pleased with reports of residents “cussing”<br />

his staff over disputes on the bills.<br />

“It’s disgusting. She has nothing to do<br />

with the (cost of these) water bills,” he said,<br />

referring to Vance.<br />

Some of the disputes stem from residents<br />

receiving shutoff notices.<br />

Bills are mailed out on the first of the<br />

month and are due by the 15th, according to<br />

the mayor. The due date is printed on the<br />

bill. On the 16th, a 10 percent penalty is<br />

added to unpaid bills, added council member<br />

Becky Martin. Service is scheduled to be<br />

cut off the first of the following month, she<br />

said. There is a $50 reconnection fee.<br />

Sheriff appointment set for April 2<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

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

The <strong>Madison</strong> County Republican Central<br />

Committee will vote on a replacement for<br />

former Sheriff James P. Sabin at their next<br />

regular meeting on April 2.<br />

Sabin retired on <strong>March</strong> 15 after 37 years<br />

with the department, 14 as sheriff.<br />

In February, on Sabin’s recommendation,<br />

the county commissioners appointed Lt.<br />

John Swaney as acting sheriff effective<br />

<strong>March</strong> 15. He will serve until the Central<br />

Committee appoints a permanent replacement<br />

to fill out the rest of Sabin’s term,<br />

which expires at the end of 2020.<br />

Because Sabin was elected to the seat as<br />

a Republican, it is up to the Republican Central<br />

Committee to fill the vacancy.<br />

The Central Committee is accepting letters<br />

and resumés from anyone interested in<br />

being considered for the position. To date,<br />

Swaney is the only person who has expressed<br />

interest, according to Nick Adkins,<br />

Central Committee president. Adkins also<br />

noted that Sabin has recommended that the<br />

committee select Swaney.<br />

For details about the vacancy, contact<br />

Adkins at nickadkinslaw@gmail.com.<br />

The committee meeting is set for 7 p.m.<br />

April 2 at the <strong>Madison</strong> County Engineer’s<br />

Office, 825 U.S. Rte. 42, London.<br />

Notification of service disconnection is a<br />

courtesy, it was noted.<br />

Anyone who doesn’t receive a bill within<br />

the first five days of the month is urged to<br />

contact Vance, fiscal officer Courtney<br />

Bricker, or the mayor. Vance also asked residents<br />

to contact her with updated phone<br />

numbers as necessary to ensure accurate<br />

contact information for accounts.<br />

Residents who are having difficulty paying<br />

their bill can contact Vance to make payment<br />

arrangements.<br />

“There is a lot of assistance out there<br />

that residents are not aware of,” she said.<br />

Application packets for the Jobs and<br />

Family Services Wraparound Program are<br />

available at Vance’s office at village hall. A<br />

referral from the village is necessary to access<br />

the various benefits.<br />

Guest Shawn Dobson of Ohio Rural<br />

Water Association educated council about<br />

village sewer function, maintenance issues,<br />

and measures to prevent blockages and<br />

backups.<br />

One of the biggest burdens on the sewer<br />

system, Dobson said, is infiltration of sewer<br />

lines from outside water sources.<br />

After a major rain event, the treatment<br />

plant is likely processing hundreds of thousands<br />

of gallons of excess water—water that<br />

uses chemicals and a lot of energy to be<br />

treated without being billed, and therefore<br />

at a cost that is never recouped. Such scenarios<br />

are commonplace in municipalities<br />

around Ohio that have aging infrastructure.<br />

Culprits for infiltration are improper use<br />

of sump pumps and illegal tie-ins, Dobson<br />

said. Tree roots in lateral sewer lines also<br />

are a major source of unwanted load to the<br />

system. Another is large catch basins, like<br />

parking lot drains. More rarely, he said he<br />

has seen instances of tiles crossing creek<br />

beds and absorbing water during swells.<br />

Dobson recommended that villages take<br />

advantage of a smoke test that would show<br />

breaks and cracks in main and lateral lines.<br />

The test can be performed in dryer summer<br />

months by Ohio Rural Water, which not<br />

only provides the leak test, but also education<br />

for participants.<br />

Dobson also recommended that the village<br />

regularly flush its sewer lines.<br />

Residents are encouraged to be mindful<br />

of what they flush down their toilets. More<br />

often than not, when the city is called out to<br />

inspect a blockage, it occurs somewhere in<br />

the lateral line on private property. Any<br />

blockage to a lateral line is the responsibility<br />

of the homeowner to fix, the mayor said.

Work-based learning is ‘real world’ experience<br />

When you were in school, or if you still<br />

are in school, did you hate if someone told<br />

you, “Well, when you are in the real world<br />

... ?” Insert the end of the statement based<br />

on your experience.<br />

Though we could make an argument that students do engage in<br />

truly authentic experiences while they are in high school, what we<br />

really mean is that the world of work is entirely different than the<br />

world of school. So true.<br />

Employers talk to me every week, discussing ways we can create<br />

experiences for students to better understand what work will require<br />

of them. If students could have good experiences in their businesses<br />

while they are in high school, they might become great<br />

full-time employees after graduation.<br />

That’s where work-based learning and the Tolles Career & Technical<br />

Center internship program come in.<br />

With more than 50 employers in support of bringing students on<br />

board as members of their team, we are transforming schooling into<br />

the real world long before graduation.<br />

Career-technical education is a pathway to work-based learning.<br />

As technology changes everything we do, right down to mowing our<br />

lawns, Tolles students are on the cutting edge.<br />

For example, Jefferson Local School District student Mason Bare<br />

has interviewed at Autmow Robotic Mowing in Columbus and will<br />

begin an internship in which he will map properties and install soft-<br />

Prior to that, she attended Manufacturing Day in October<br />

2016 at Nissen Chemitec America in London. She<br />

asked if she could shadow a Nissen Chemitec engineer<br />

in December 2016. Because Tolles and Nissen Chemitec<br />

had a strong partnership, Karner was able to intern at<br />

Nissen while attending Tolles.<br />

Making Nissen Chemitec her classroom, Karner<br />

learned from engineers in the manufacturing field from<br />

February 20<strong>17</strong> until her graduation. Karner also completed<br />

a capstone project at the company.<br />

After completing her first year at Cleveland State,<br />

Karner continued her internship at Nissen Chemitec.<br />

She demonstrated such talent and skill that Shawn<br />

Hendrix, president of Nissen Chemitec America, offered<br />

her a part-time internship for this school year when she<br />

transferred from Cleveland State to Columbus State<br />

Community College.<br />

Karner will graduate with her associate’s degree in<br />

electromechanical engineering at the end of December.<br />

She said she wants to transition to full-time after she<br />

earns her associate’s degree because she likes the<br />

“hands-on” engineering work she is doing at Nissen<br />

Chemitec.<br />

“Kacie is a wonderful young lady with excellent communication<br />

skills, excellent work habits (on-time and<br />

where she is supposed to be), and she has a very warm<br />

personality,” Hendrix said. “Any one of my associates<br />

will tell you that I just don’t throw the word ‘excellent’<br />

out if it is not deserved.”<br />

Karner’s choice to engage in career-technical education<br />

when she was a sophomore in high school led her<br />

to the Tolles pre-engineering and advanced manufacturing<br />

program, which led her to Manufacturing Day<br />

and ultimately to successful employment with Nissen<br />

Chemitec America.<br />

Tolles serves all of the <strong>Madison</strong> County school districts,<br />

Fairbanks Local School District in Union County,<br />

and the Dublin City School District and Hilliard City<br />

Schools in Franklin County.<br />

With college credit offered in almost every Tolles program,<br />

learning. Welcome to the real world.<br />

Student brings 3-D printing capabilities into focus<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

West Jefferson High School senior<br />

Nathaniel Dersom is using innovative,<br />

three-dimensional (3D) printer technology<br />

to create adaptors converting standard<br />

classroom microscopes into digital devices<br />

via a camera and computer.<br />

A new digital microscope can cost $400<br />

or more. The printed parts designed by Dersom<br />

cost under $1. When coupled with a<br />

new document camera, computer and microscopes<br />

already owned by the district, the<br />

cost is $100 for technology that would otherwise<br />

cost hundreds of dollars.<br />

“The district has 13 regular microscopes<br />

that they use in science class,” said Curt<br />

Dennis, technology director. “This is a huge<br />

savings for the district, and we have a better<br />

product and larger screen than you get<br />

from digital microscopes you can purchase.”<br />

Two 3D printers, software and supplies<br />

were acquired at no cost from a grant Dennis<br />

wrote last summer. More than a dozen<br />

adaptors are needed to outfit the standard<br />

microscopes and each one takes 3.5 hours to<br />

print.<br />

“These printers have been a great addition<br />

to our high school/middle school Innovation<br />

Center and the students have really<br />

been excited to create projects and watch<br />

them be printed,” Dennis said.<br />

“We've had projects range from hall<br />

passes, to pencil holders, to this microscope<br />

adaptor, and it's great to see the students<br />

use their creativity and solve problems that<br />

they discover.”<br />

Dennis said Dersom worked on the project<br />

without any staff assistance. One working<br />

variation was first printed, but the<br />

18-year-old, who wants to pursue a career<br />

in engineering research and development,<br />

tweaked the design to end up with the final<br />

product.<br />

Dersom became involved with the project<br />

when he was printing 3D parts in the library<br />

for a transmission prototype. The<br />

high school librarian asked if he could design<br />

a holder that would connect to student<br />

Chromebooks.<br />

“They already had a camera picked out,<br />

so I just used the specifications sheet for the<br />

measurements to make my design,” said<br />

Dersom, a National Merit Commended<br />

Scholar who scored a perfect 36 on the ACT.<br />

“It took about three different trials to get<br />

the fractional measurements right (less<br />

than 1-millimeter adjustments). This was<br />

especially due to the barrel diameter which<br />

slides onto the microscope’s eyepiece. All in<br />

all, it took about seven hours of work for me<br />

to get to the final design and about a month<br />

overall.”<br />

Dersom said he has no intention to file<br />

for a patent on the adapter, but he is letting<br />

the high school use the design as they want<br />

and possibly will allow other schools to do<br />

the same.<br />

“3D printing has near limitless possibilities<br />

of design complexity,” Dersom pointed<br />

out.<br />

“In the past, prototypes were made of<br />

wood, which has grain and can split easily,<br />

or of metal, which is costly. Printing also is<br />

very quick and cheap. The total time to<br />

print the adapter is about four hours, as I<br />

remember. One kilogram of plastic–about<br />

2.2 pounds–costs only about $12.”<br />

When he isn’t designing printable technology,<br />

Dersom is active in sports, music<br />

and theater. He plays soccer, tennis and<br />

served as kicker for the football team. He is<br />

Funds sought for roundabout<br />

By Michael Williamson<br />

Staff Writer<br />

West Jefferson is moving forward on a<br />

grant proposal to start phase two of the I-<br />

70/State Route 29 roundabout project.<br />

At their <strong>March</strong> 4 meeting, village council<br />

members approved a resolution authorizing<br />

the mayor and public service director to participate<br />

in the INFRA (Infrastructure for<br />

Rebuilding America) Grant Program.<br />

The project is estimated to cost $14.1 million<br />

and will include rebuilding the existing<br />

bridge, building a second bridge, and building<br />

a second roundabout at 70 and 29.<br />

The village is partnering with the Ohio<br />

Department of Transportation (ODOT) on<br />

the grant application. They are asking for<br />

$7.5 million in federal highway funds to put<br />

toward the project. The village applied for a<br />

similar grant last year, but did not receive<br />

it, according to John Mitchell, public service<br />

director. The new application goes out this<br />

week. Mitchell said he should have an answer<br />

by April.<br />

If the funding comes through, the village<br />

will commit $4.1 million to the project and<br />

ODOT will make up the remaining $2.5 million.<br />

Part of West Jefferson’s local share will<br />

come from the village’s local developer fund.<br />

The rest they hope to cover with an Ohio<br />

Public Works Commission grant for which<br />

they will apply in August, Mitchell said.<br />

If all of the funding pieces fall into place,<br />

design work will take a year and construction<br />

will take one to two years.<br />

Also at the <strong>March</strong> 4 meeting, council<br />

amended an ordinance passed in September<br />

that allowed for the narrowing of Veterans<br />

Way and North Center Street. The ordinance<br />

came at the request of Fisher Cast<br />

Steel Products Inc. who has plans to extended<br />

the size of their building.<br />

“This is a more complete and concise description<br />

of these two right-of-ways,” said<br />

Steve Johnston, council president. “The<br />

measure has been approved by our law director.”<br />

In other action, council accepted a recommendation<br />

to award the 2019 paving maintenance<br />

program to Cox Paving LLC.<br />

Council also authorized supplemental appropriations<br />

of $3 million in capital improvement<br />

funds to reimburse Duke Realty<br />

for the Amazon project at routes 29 and 40.<br />

printed camera adaptor he designed for use with standard microscopes to<br />

convert them into digital devices.<br />

a cast member of the high school’s upcoming<br />

production of “Seussical: the Musical.”<br />

“We empower students to find an issue or<br />

problem they could solve with the 3D printer<br />

to help the building, district or an individual<br />

teacher,” Dennis said. “Once a student has<br />

a design, that’s when we work with them to<br />

get it printed and see if it works.”

Tentative date set for synthetic turf installation<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

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

The Jonathan Alder school board passed<br />

two resolutions on <strong>March</strong> 11 showing their<br />

support of the plan to install synthetic turf<br />

at the football stadium. One is an agreement<br />

to accept donations to cover the cost of<br />

the project. The other names LeVan’s Excavating<br />

Inc. and Astroturf Inc. as the preferred<br />

vendors.<br />

The votes allow the school district to get<br />

on the construction schedule for this spring.<br />

The tentative start date is May 20 with<br />

completion slated in time for fall sports<br />

teams to use the facility.<br />

The estimated cost of the project is<br />

$581,000, which doesn’t reflect adjustments<br />

for in-kind donations. The Athletic Boosters<br />

and the Alder Field Turf subcommittee have<br />

raised $550,000 in donations and pledges.<br />

The Boosters and subcommittee will collect<br />

on many of the pledges over the next few<br />

weeks and report back to the board on their<br />

progress prior to the board’s next regular<br />

meeting on April 8. The district will need to<br />

cover any difference on up-front costs while<br />

the Boosters continue to collect the remainder<br />

of the money to pay back the district. Superintendent<br />

Gary Chapman said the board<br />

will need to decide what amount of money<br />

they are comfortable with putting up.<br />

While the Athletic Boosters are covering<br />

the cost of the project, the contract must<br />

meet district approval. The approved agreement<br />

allows district leaders to look over the<br />

contract and present a final version to the<br />

vendors.<br />

Chapman and the board commended the<br />

Boosters and subcommittee, and specifically<br />

Rayce Robinson, Joel Maynard and Tricia<br />

Kidd, for their work on the fundraising campaign<br />

over the past couple of years.<br />

“That total dollar amount they have in<br />

donations is incredible,” Chapman said.<br />

Planning for growth<br />

Chapman updated the board on the district’s<br />

recent strategic planning committee<br />

meeting. The group is looking at ways the<br />

district can prepare for the increase in student<br />

population that will come with the addition<br />

of hundreds of new housing units in<br />

the area over the next several years.<br />

The committee set three priorities:<br />

• Community conversations—“We need to<br />

get out and tell our story now,” Chapman<br />

said. The idea is to inform the community<br />

that growth is coming and talk about the<br />

challenges and opportunities it presents.<br />

Chapman said the district is thinking about<br />

partnering with village and township representatives<br />

to put on a series of community<br />

engagement meetings starting this fall.<br />

• Property exploration—It is somewhat<br />

difficult to predict where the growth will<br />

happen in the district, but school leaders<br />

need to be looking into possibilities for acquiring<br />

more property, Chapman said.<br />

• Enrollment projection study—The district’s<br />

last study took place four years ago.<br />

The next Jonathan Alder school board<br />

meeting will take place at 6:30 p.m. April 8<br />

at Monroe Elementary.<br />

Public invited to Alder book club event<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

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

Students at Jonathan Alder High School<br />

are inviting fellow students, teachers, parents<br />

and community members to eat pizza<br />

and talk about books.<br />

The special book club meeting is part of<br />

Project LIT, a nationwide initiative that<br />

brings people together around a shared<br />

reading experience. Students choose the<br />

books, plan and promote the event, and<br />

serve as facilitators.<br />

Jonathan Alder’s book club meeting is set<br />

for 11:10 a.m. to 12:46 p.m. April 25 at the<br />

high school. A pizza lunch will be provided.<br />

Seniors in the English 12 class will lead the<br />

discussion.<br />

The students have picked five books to<br />

discuss:<br />

• “Born a Crime: Stories from a South<br />

African Childhood” by Trevor Noah—(Memoir)<br />

Noah, host of “The Daily Show,” writes<br />

about his experiences growing up in South<br />

Africa during apartheid.<br />

• “The 57 Bus: The True Story of Two<br />

Teenagers and the Crime That Changed<br />

Their Lives” by Dashka Slater—(Non-Fiction)<br />

On a bus ride home from school, a single<br />

reckless act leaves one teen severely<br />

burned and the other charged with hate<br />

crimes.<br />

• “Children of Blood and Bone” by Tomi<br />

Adeyemi—(Fantasy) The king has stripped<br />

the kingdom’s people of their magic, but a<br />

sister-brother team has a chance to right<br />

the wrong.<br />

• “Tradition” by Brendan Kiely—(Young<br />

Adult/Fiction) Two academy students take<br />

on privilege, sexism, and the importance of<br />

consent.<br />

• “Pride” by Ibi Zoboi—(Young Adult/Fiction)<br />

This modern update of Jane Austen’s<br />

“Pride and Prejudice” balances the topics of<br />

cultural identity, class, gentrification and<br />

first love.<br />

Anyone can participate in the book club<br />

by reading one or more of the books, then<br />

taking part in the discussion on April 25.<br />

Reservations are required by April 18. Send<br />

West Jeff group donates fidget quilts<br />

Members of the Heirloom Quilters met at Hurt-Battelle Memorial Library in West Jefferson on <strong>March</strong> 5 and donated 50 fidget quilts<br />

to Loving Care Hospice. The quilts are decorated with ribbons, pockets, doodads, and fabrics with different textures. They are designed<br />

to help patients with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease cope with anxiety and their need to stay busy.

Serving up green eggs & ham and dinner, too<br />

They are ready to show you a Thing or two.<br />

In the world of Dr. Seuss, people have come to expect<br />

the unexpected.<br />

Surprises are in store as West Jefferson High School<br />

prepares for this year’s musical, “Seussical.”<br />

In addition to the regular performances of the show,<br />

students will present a Green Eggs & Ham Breakfast<br />

with the characters on <strong>March</strong> 23 and a dinner theatre<br />

experience on opening night on <strong>March</strong> 28.<br />

First is the fun-filled character breakfast.<br />

“The last time we held a breakfast with characters<br />

(for ‘Beauty and the Beast’), it was a hit with the community,”<br />

said director Rachel Armas. “The other directors<br />

and I think this is a great opportunity to connect<br />

with families, let them meet their favorite Dr. Seuss<br />

characters, and take pictures. And who doesn’t want to<br />

try some real green eggs and ham?”<br />

The event also serves as a fundraiser to offset production<br />

costs.<br />

The breakfast will run from 9 to 11 a.m. <strong>March</strong> 23 in<br />

the West Jefferson High School auditeria. Tickets are<br />

available at the door for $6 for children 12 and younger Nathaniel Dersom (left) stars as The Cat in the Hat in<br />

and $8 for anyone 13 and older, with a $30 maximum West Jefferson Local Schools’ upcoming production<br />

for families.<br />

of “Seussical: The Musical.” He is ably assisted by<br />

Visitors get to meet and eat with the Cat in the Hat, Judyth Young (center) as Thing One and Clara Drummond<br />

as Thing Two. They are among the characters the<br />

Horton the Elephant, Gertrude McFuzz and many other<br />

Dr. Seuss characters.<br />

public can meet at the Green Eggs & Ham Breakfast<br />

In addition to green eggs and ham, the menu includes planned for <strong>March</strong> 23. Shows are <strong>March</strong> 28-30, with a<br />

special dinner theater planned for <strong>March</strong> 28.<br />

School calendar set for 2019-20<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Setting a school year calendar requires juggling student,<br />

staff and district needs. For Jefferson Local<br />

Schools, the process is relatively problem-free.<br />

The district’s calendar committee is comprised of certified<br />

and classified staff, administrators, a curriculum<br />

coordinator and the superintendent.<br />

While many districts struggle with balancing testing<br />

schedules, in-service requirements and holiday breaks,<br />

school board President David Harper said, locally,<br />

“There haven’t been any issues in 16 years. We work<br />

well together.”<br />

This year, the committee held their first meeting in<br />

late February and wrapped up their work in time to<br />

present a recommendation for the 2019-20 calendar for<br />

approval at the <strong>March</strong> 11 school board meeting.<br />

The first day of school for students is Aug. 21.<br />

Thanksgiving break is Nov. 27-29, followed by winter<br />

break starting Dec. 23. Classes resume on Jan. 7.<br />

Spring break in 2020 runs <strong>March</strong> 23-27. The last day<br />

for students is May 29.<br />

“In establishing a calendar, we also have to take into<br />

account teacher work days, professional development<br />

days and testing schedules,” Harper said. “There are a<br />

lot of student needs and teacher needs we have to consider,<br />

along with holidays and breaks.<br />

“Historically, we try to start school before Labor Day<br />

and out by Memorial Day,” he continued. Next year,<br />

Memorial Day is on May 25.<br />

In addition to setting a firm schedule, Harper said<br />

committee members keep in mind that weather can impact<br />

school days. They think about which days, such as<br />

spring break, can be used as make-up days.<br />

During special presentations, middle school Principal<br />

Debbie Omen reported on a computer-based language<br />

arts pilot program–Study Sync–that started in<br />

January and focuses on non-fiction reading, writing,<br />

grammar, vocabulary and current events.<br />

“The beauty of Study Sync is that it is matched to the<br />

standards,” said Omen, adding that the program meets<br />

expectations across all middle school grade levels. “It<br />

provides so much more for the entire spectrum of student<br />

needs.<br />

“Teachers have resources at their fingertips. Teachers<br />

don’t have to find things on their own or build them<br />

on their own. There’s so much in this program. It’s like<br />

one-stop shopping.”<br />

Garden plots available at London’s Cowling Park<br />

The city of London has expanded the number of garden<br />

plots available for rent at Cowling Park.<br />

Last year, the Community Gardens, located at the<br />

corner of Park Avenue and Walnut Street, featured 20<br />

10x18-foot plots. This year, there are 32 plots.<br />

The cost is $10 for the growing season. Registration<br />

and payment can be made at city hall, 20 S. Walnut St.,<br />

London. Organizers also will be taking registrations at<br />

the <strong>Madison</strong> County Garden Expo, set for 9 a.m.-3 p.m.<br />

April 13 at the Della Selsor Building at the <strong>Madison</strong><br />

County Fairgrounds in London.<br />

The plots are reserved on a first come, first served<br />

basis. Amy Rees, coordinator, said about a dozen of the<br />

spaces have already been rented.<br />

The garden plots have proven popular with area residents<br />

who don’t have yards or enough space in their<br />

yards for a garden, Rees said. Additionally, some participants<br />

use the space to grow vegetables to donate to<br />

local food pantries.<br />

Local farmer Chris Kennedy is volunteering his time<br />

to till the plots in preparation for planting. The city will<br />

loan out basic garden tools to anyone who needs them.<br />

whimsical, colorful pancakes. Also planned are face-painting, Thing<br />

1 & 2 cutouts, and a chance to take pictures with the characters.<br />

Second is dinner and a show, without having to leave the venue.<br />

“I am so excited, as always, to partner with Ann & Tony’s<br />

(restaurant) for this event,” Armas said. “Tom and Judy (Buscemi)<br />

have been huge supporters of the music program at West Jeff high<br />

school and middle school through the years. We are so grateful for<br />

their generosity and delicious food.”<br />

The dinner theater experience will begin at 6 p.m. <strong>March</strong> 28 with<br />

the show to follow. The three-course meal includes a choice of<br />

chicken parmesan, lasagna or a vegetarian option. A dairy- and<br />

gluten-free option is available, as well. The entrée selection needs<br />

to be made when ordering tickets.<br />

The dinner-musical package is $25 per person. These tickets are<br />

pre-sale only. According to Armas, tickets are going fast. Reservations<br />

may be made and paid for at the high school office. Payment<br />

is accepted in cash or check made out to the West Jefferson Music<br />

Boosters.<br />

“Neither of these events could take place without the West Jefferson<br />

Music Boosters and a team of hardworking, creative parent<br />

volunteers,” Armas said. “The incredible parents of our students<br />

have been working hard to make both of these events high quality<br />

and memorable.”<br />

Other performances of “Seussical’ are set for <strong>March</strong> 29 at 7 p.m.<br />

and <strong>March</strong> 30 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Show tickets are $5 for students,<br />

$10 for adults, and $15 for VIP seating with prime view. To order<br />

tickets, email westjeffdrama@gmail.com or call (614) 879-7681, ext.<br />

2300. Tickets also will be available at the door.

purchased the following<br />

classifieds. Determining<br />

the value of their service<br />

or product is advised by<br />

this publication. In order<br />

to avoid misunderstandings,<br />

some advertisers do<br />

not offer “employment”<br />

but rather supply the<br />

readers with manuals, directories<br />

and other materials<br />

designed to help<br />

their clients establish mail<br />

order selling and other<br />

businesses at home. Under<br />

NO circumstance<br />

should you send any<br />

money in advance or give<br />

the client your checking,<br />

license ID or credit card<br />

numbers. Also beware of<br />

ads that claim to guarantee<br />

loans regardless of<br />

credit and note that if a<br />

credit repair company<br />

does business only over<br />

the phone it’s illegal to request<br />

any money before<br />

delivering its service. All<br />

funds are based in US<br />

dollars. Toll Free numbers<br />

may or may not<br />

reach Canada. Please<br />
