Westland area

is ready for

development

By Amanda Ensinger

Staff Writer

Residents from the westside got the

chance to discuss economic development in

their community and improvements they

would like to see in the region during a

recent stakeholder engagement event.

On April 29, the Franklin County

Economic Development and Planning

Department held a community meeting at

Haydocy where they asked residents projects

and improvements they would like to

see on the westside.

“Within our department, we are starting

to plan for economic development on

the westside and we want to ensure whatever

economic development we do reflects

the community and is resident-focused,”

said T. Alex Beres, assistant director of the

Franklin County Economic Development

and Planning. “In order to do this, we need

to hear from you guys. We will use what

we talk about tonight to continue more

conversations and hopefully generate

activity in the region.”

During the stakeholder engagement

conversation, residents were broken up

into groups of six and discussed locations,

businesses and meeting spots they like on

the westside and things they don’t like.

Among the items that residents liked

included Carl Frye Park, Westland Area

Library, Doctor’s Hospital, Prairie

Township Community Center, Camp

Chase Trail, Prairie Township Fire

Station and Hollywood Casino.

Some of the items in the region that residents

didn’t like included the high crime

in the region, businesses around the

Hollywood Casino, and crime ridden

apartment complexes and nuisance properties.

“There is real potential in parts of the

westside, but they need to be developed,”

said Dan Fagan, meeting attendee. “For

example, if the Westland Mall gets developed

the other side of the street has huge

potential.”

One of the big conversations during the

meeting was the recent report that the

Sears portion of Westland Mall has been

purchased by LGR Weston, leaving the

We Do Recover

By Andrea Cordle

Westside Editor

John Gerlach grew up in Westgate with

a loving family. He graduated high school

and held a steady job.

“On the outside, everything looked

alright but inside it wasn’t,” he said.

Gerlach was an addict.

About nine years ago, Gerlach accidentally

overdosed on a combination of drugs.

He was found barely breathing in his

apartment. Medics arrived and administered

Narcan then rushed Gerlach to the

hospital where he spent several days in

the intensive care unit.

“Now that wasn’t my last use or sobriety

date,” said Gerlach.

“We all know the news last week has

gotten everyone excited about the westside,”

said James Schimmer, director of the

Franklin County Economic Development

and Planning. “However, this won’t be the

focus of the meeting tonight. We want to

talk about the entire westside, not just

Westland Mall.”

However, the mall still dominated the

conversation. When residents were asked

to prioritize what they want to see

improved in the westside, the mall was the

top item discussed by all groups.

“We need a multi-jurisdictional

approach to repairing the Westland Mall,”

said Betty Jaynes, westside resident. “We

It was years later when Gerlach finally asked for help. Now, he

is sober and giving thanks to those who helped him in his journey

to recovery.

“You have got to show gratitude,” said

Gerlach. “Gratitude is an action word.”

Gerlach, along with the Desert Island

Club, will host a We Do Recover event as

part of EMS Appreciate Week. The event

will take place from 12 to 5 p.m. May 19 at

Westgate Park, 3217 Wicklow Road in

Columbus.

Gerlach said people are welcome to share

their stories of hope and say thank you to

the first responders who have saved lives.

“Those guys (first responders) watch us

destroy ourselves over and over again,” said

Gerlach. “Then we thank them by fighting

with them in the ambulance.”

The Columbus Division of Fire Rapid

Response Emergency Addiction and Crisis

Team (RREACT) will have a booth set up at

the event.

Lt. Matt Parrish, who oversees RREACT

said their goal is to get people into treatment.

“We give addiction the same respect and

support as any other disease,” said Parrish.

Parrish said he is working to remove the

stigma associated with addiction.

“If you go to work and tell everyone your

child has cancer, people rally around you

and organize 5Ks. If you tell people your

Free fresh fruit and vegetables will be

distributed on May 11 to qualified, lowincome

Franklin County residents. The

fresh produce will be available at Central

at 10:30 a.m. To assist in registration,

bring a photo ID and your current address

in Franklin County. You are asked to also

need the city and county to come to the

table.”

However, some residents were skeptical

they would not see any benefits of the mall

being developed.

“Once something good happens at

Westland Mall it will be annexed into the

city,” said Nancy Day-Achauer, westside

resident and member of the Westland Area

Commission.

Westside residents have been conditioned

to not want more than we already

have because we live on the westside,”

added Janet Cahill, westside resident. “We

discussed during the meeting included

having a sit-down restaurant with a patio

on the westside, having playgrounds,

addressing the homeless issue, having

more attractions for young people and

reducing the cost of water service in the

region.

Residents also suggested some ways to

address these issues, including adding a

police substation, having tax incentives for

businesses, working with other jurisdictions

and creating a master development

plan.

Organizers will now take these ideas

and go back to drawing board with next

steps for development for the westside.

child is an addict, they put their heads down and turn away. We

need to break down that stigma.”

Last year, the Columbus Division of Fire responded to 3,387

runs where Naloxone was used. The RREACT team helped connect

more than 1,000 of those individuals to treatment providers

or other social services.

“Addiction is difficult for families and it is a burden on society,”

said Parrish. “It takes a community to help someone recover.”

That is why Parrish called We Do Recover a “fantastic event,”

especially for the westside of Columbus.

“The westside is one of the hardest hit areas,” said the fire lieutenant

who grew up on the westside of Columbus. “It’s hard to see

the area struggle but a lot of people are doing good work.”

Gerlach said if not for the medics who arrived when he overdosed,

he would not be alive.

“Someone helped me when I could not help myself,” said

Gerlach.

Parrish said events like We Do Recover give him hope.

“We see these people at their worst time. This gives us hope to

see the folks who have made it.”

Gerlach said addiction is a disease that does not discriminate

but said recovery is possible.

“Sometimes we do recover. Sometimes we can help someone

else,” he said.

We Do Recover will feature food, motivational speakers, live

music and more. It is supported by not only RREACT, but also the

Columbus Police Department, the Franklin County Sheriff’s

Department HOPE Task Force and the Franklin and Prairie township

fire departments. It is open to the public.

Township Focus

Trustees OK police service contract

By Amanda Ensinger

Staff Writer

The county sheriff will continue to provide

police protection for a local township

after leadership agreed to a pay increase

for the services in 2019.

At a recent Prairie Township meeting,

the board approved the 2019 Police Service

Agreement with the Franklin County

Sheriff’s Office. The agreement, which

spans from Jan. 1, 2019 through Dec. 31,

2019, would pay the county $906,504 a

year.

“In 2018 we paid $888,471, so this will

be a 2 percent increase,” said Rob Peters,

administrator for Prairie Township. “In the

past six years the contract has increased by

13.4 percent.”

Last year, the township paid the sheriff’s

department $74,039 a month. With

this new contract, the township will pay

the 75,542 per month. The new contract

also will have a not to exceed amount of

$936,000, factoring in overtime for

deputies when needed.

In 2018, the contract increased by 4 percent

compared to 2017. In 2017, the township

paid $853,471 a year. According to

township officials, the reason for the

increases is related to wages, benefits and

equipment needs.

The township’s service with the

Franklin County Sheriff’s Office includes

two cars on township streets. One of these

cars patrols 24 hours a day, seven days a

week. The other car patrols 16 hours a day,

seven days a week. The county also provides

backup as needed, as well as has

other cars in the area when available.

The township is required to have police

enforcement to be a limited home rule government.

After unanimously agreeing to the contract,

the trustees moved on and discussed

the upcoming bicentennial of the township.

“Besides this important anniversary,

this also will be the 75th anniversary of the

fire department,” Peters said. “I wanted to

start the conversation now about how we

want to celebrate these important events.”

Prairie Township trustee Cathy

Schmelzer voiced her support behind creating

banners that recognize these accomplishments.

“Could we do banners on Broad Street?”

Schmelzer asked. “Having something public

on Broad Street would definitely raise

awareness and be a public way to celebrate

these anniversaries.”

Fire department officials said they had

been brainstorming ideas to celebrate their

anniversary. Some of the ideas includes a

Prairie Township Fire Department Food

Truck Festival, having some type of recognition

at the annual Prairie Township Fish

Fry and celebrating during Fire Prevention

Month in October.

“We also discussed creating a commemorative

coin during Fire Prevention

Month,” said Prairie Township Assistant

Fire Chief Allen Scott. “We will also get

with James (Gant) and talk about how we

can collaborate. These are both big accomplishments

that we want to promote.”

A few other ideas thrown out by leaders

and residents included integrating these

anniversaries into the opening of the new

Galloway Road Sports Complex, creating

an education resource with historical photos

from the township and fire department

and partnering with local schools to boost

pride in the community.

In Education

District expects an increase

in English Learner students

By Dedra Cordle

Staff Writer

South-Western City School officials are

predicting steady growth in the enrollment

numbers of students classified as English

Learners.

At the April 22 board of education meeting,

program coordinator Ed Kennedy said

data indicates there could be as many as

3,325 EL students enrolled in the district

for the 2019/20 school year, which is an

increase of 21 students from the current

school year. He added that while growth is

projected in all buildings, one area that

will continue to see added growth throughout

the years is the “Franklin Heights corridor.”

“We are seeing many families move into

the areas whose schools will feed into

Franklin Heights High School,” he said,

referring to East Franklin, Finland,

Harmon and West Franklin Elementary,

as well as Franklin Woods Intermediate

and Finland Middle.

He said the demographic that will grow

throughout that area is the Latino population.

“For many years, we saw a lot of growth

with our Somali and Arabic speaking families

in that corridor but now we are projecting

an increase of our Latino families.”

Kennedy said those projections do not

come as a surprise to the district, nor are

they unprepared for the influx on a staffing

level.

“Spanish is our number one language

with EL students, with Somali and Arabic

following,” Kennedy said. His data indicates

71 percent of EL students speak

Spanish as their primary language, followed

by 20 percent for Somali and Arabic

speakers.

He also reported that when students

enroll in the program, a majority are doing

so when they are at the pre-functional or

basic level of learning the English language.

“Of that group, a majority are at the

younger levels, such as the elementary or

intermediate age,” he said.

Kennedy said it takes one to two years

for students to have a proficient grasp on

conversational skills, while it takes five to

seven years to become proficient with their

reading and writing skills.

He said when it comes to older students

who enroll and are testing at the pre-functional

or basic level it is “all hands on deck”

to get them to graduate on time.

One step the district is taking to lessen

the language gap is through a Striving

Readers Comprehensive Literacy grant.

According to Kennedy, the district was

recently awarded a $200,000 grant from

the Ohio Department of Education that, in

part, allowed officials to purchase books for

the middle to high school grades.

“We have found that pleasure reading

helps advance their understanding of the

English language,” said Kennedy.

He said a favored genre of students is

the graphic novel.

“Graphic novels are popular because

they are able to show you the action while

telling you what is happening,” he said.

The grant was implemented this year,

and Kennedy said it is already paying dividends.

“We have seen a 0.5 to a 0.8 percent

increase in grade level growth after just

the first semester,” he said.

Another positive thing about the grant,

he added, is that most of the reading materials

can be accessed online so there are no

waiting periods for the return of popular

materials.

“We think this will be a great tool for

our students,” he said.

In other news, Amy Schakat, the coordinator

of Career-Technical Education, said

the middle grades will be introduced to

four new courses next year. They include

an introduction to financial literacy, entrepreneurship,

app development and

strength and fitness. And at the high

school level, Westland will add a Bilingual

Customer Service Certificate.

Protecting seniors from financial abuse

Informed Aging - By Michelle Missler

You or someone you know could become

the target of a growing crime in the United

States - financial abuse of older adults.

This can be defined simply as the illegal

or improper use of an older adult’s finances

or property. This is the fastest growing

form of elder abuse that deprives older

adults of their resources and ultimately

their independence. Financial abuse can

happen to wealthy older adults or those

with limited means. It is reported that

older adults lose billions of dollars each

year as a result of financial abuse.

Scammers are targeting older adults by

using common scare tactics like the

Internal Revenue Service telephone scam,

the sweetheart scam, the home repair

scam and the grandparent scam. Another

progressively growing scam is where

callers pretend to represent the Social

Security Administration and attempt to

obtain the older adult’s Social Security

number, date of birth and banking information.

The information is then utilized to

divert their benefits to another address

and bank account.

Financial abuse has become more

prevalent and is an expensive problem that

affects older adults and their families.

Safeguard your personal information and

never provide your Social Security number,

banking information or other personal

financial information over the phone

unless you initiate the telephone call.

If you feel that you or an elderly loved

one is susceptible to financial abuse please

contact Franklin County Office Adult

Protective Services (APS) at 614-525-4348

who strives to prevent, reduce or correct

conditions causing danger to adults who

are 60 years of age and older.

Franklin County Board of Commissioners: Marilyn Brown • John O’Grady • Kevin Boyce

The Franklin County Board of Commissioners and The Franklin County Office on Aging join with the Messenger Newspaper in providing this update on aging issues in Franklin County.

OLDER AMERICANS MONTH 2019: CONNECT, CREATE, CONTRIBUTE

May is Older Americans Month. Older adults have made countless

contributions and sacrifices to ensure a better life for future generations.

Since 1963, communities across the country have shown their gratitude by

celebrating Older Americans Month (OAM) each May. This celebration

recognizes older Americans for their contributions and demonstrates our

nation’s commitment to helping them stay healthy and active.

Each year, more and more older adults are making a positive impact in

Franklin County. As volunteers, employees, employers, educators,

mentors, advocates, and more, they offer insight and experience that

benefit the entire community.

This year’s OAM theme, Connect, Create, Contribute, encourages older

adults and their communities to:

• Connect with friends, family, and local services and resources.

• Create through activities that promote learning, health, and personal

enrichment.

• Contribute time, talent, and life experience to benefit others.

The Office on Aging plans three events in 2019 that will help older adults

connect with local services and resources, learn how to create healthier

lifestyles and discover ways to share their talents and life experiences with

others.

Wednesday, September 25, 2019, Flourish Franklin County, Franklin

Park Adventure Center, 1775 East Broad Street, 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

A free event held in conjunction with the 18th Annual National Women’s

Health & Fitness Day to educate, empower and engage women age 60

and over by providing them an opportunity to flourish. This event will

provide fitness activities and health information from a gender perspective

in a favorable environment and with the intent of improving the well-being

of older women.

Friday, October 25, 2019, Senior Living Festival, Hollywood Casino,

200 Georgesville Road, 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

A free celebration for older adults which includes information exhibits, door

the value of their service

NO circumstance

should you send any

In Entertainment

“Endgame” offers satisfying conclusion

There is much to like about “Avengers:

Endgame,” aka the ode to the original

superheroes in this never-ending cinematic

universe. Unlike its collective predecessors,

this film manages to strike a balance

between scenes of humor and heartbreak,

action and drama, and it doesn’t skim on

that all-important thread of character

development. With that said, there is much

to dislike about “Avengers: Endgame,” too.

Since it only came out last weekend, I shall

refrain from spoiling certain parts via an

airing of grievances but there are moments

that are complete headscratchers, mostly

stemming from the decisions of the writing

team.

In my quest for clarity on ‘certain parts,’

I read the Q&A session with screenwriters

Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely

for further understanding. This was a mistake.

Not only did I come away from reading

their interview with a newfound disdain

for their alleged creative talents, I

also felt more disappointment in the film

because of their explanations.

‘Endgame’ is a movie where the talent

on screen elevates the material given.

Though it sinks sometimes due to their

meandering dialogue and development, it

is the bond between actor, character and

audience that makes this film float away

into the ether of complete entertainment.

It begins several weeks after the events

of Infinity War where the survivors of the

mass dusting that took place on a global

scale are reeling from the shock of it all.

Governments have collapsed, families have

been destroyed, and all hope is gone with

the remaining members of the Avengers.

One night, when the Avengers have all

gathered around to play ‘Did Thanos use

the stones again?’ they meet Carol Danvers

(Brie Larson) who has rescued Tony Stark

(Robert Downey Jr.) and Nebula (Karen

Gillan) from certain death in the far reaches

of outer space.

Due to her galactic ability and dogged

optimism, Carol determines that they

should go kill Thanos (Josh Brolin) on

whatever planet he is holed up on, pry the

gauntlet with the 7 infinity stones off of his

cold, dead, purple hand and use them to

bring half of the universe’s popular back to

life. Having no other plan of action, they

set off to do so, only to be informed that

Thanos has destroyed all of the stones and

thus any hope of rectification.

The film then flashes forward five years

and we can see how the survivors are progressing

and regressing. Steve Rogers

(Chris Evans) leads a self-help group for

those struggling to move on; Bruce Banner

(Mark Ruffalo) has finally come to terms

Touch-a-Truck

The Prairie Township Community

Center will host a Touch-a-Truck event

community events

The Reel Deal

Dedra Cordle

with his Hulk side;

Tony lives a quiet

life with his wife

Pepper (Gwyneth

Paltrow) and daughter;

Thor (Chris

Hemsworth) has

turned to alcohol

and gaming; Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner)

became an assassin and Natasha (Scarlett

Johansson) spends most of her timing staring

off into the distance.

While coming back from group therapy

one afternoon, Steve and Natasha receive a

message from someone who was believed to

be a casualty of ‘The Snap.’ At first, the two

write it off the pleas of Scott Lang (Paul

Rudd) as a previously recorded video, but

quickly realize it is happening in real time.

When they invite him into the former

headquarters, they learn about the quantum

realm (where Scott was stuck) and its

theory that space and time are irrelevant.

Going on the slim hope that they could

travel back in time to collect the stones

before they were found and right the

wrongs that were done, the Avengers as we

currently know them assemble one last

time.

This film can be described as taking

place in three acts; Act I is the grieving

process, where the actors show their range

with grief, anger and guilt; Act II is the

time heist where we see some of Marvel’s

“greatest hits” as it were; and Act III is just

emotionally charged bonkers action where

things occasionally veer off the rails, especially

as it pertains to the decision making

process by the film’s creators.

“Avengers: Endgame” isn’t a perfect

movie by any stretch but it’s not a completely

awful hot mess despite efforts of the

creative team. It’s very fun, and entertaining

and a somewhat satisfying conclusion

to the first grand arc of this endless cinematic

universe.

Ultimately, I wouldn’t say no to another

viewing, primarily to see the sequences in

the final battle, but I’m also not in a complete

rush to go out and see it again anytime

soon either. Large crowds are not my

thing, neither is sitting in a theater for

more than three hours. Grade: B
