Water towers and<br />

voltage spikes<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Keeping Canal Winchester’s three water towers operational<br />

and from becoming eyesores falls upon the shoulders of a $77,000<br />

10-year maintenance contract that is up for renewal.<br />

Water Department Superintendent Joe Taylor said the previous<br />

contract was awarded in 2009 and includes annual visual<br />

inspections of each tank and scheduled maintenance.<br />

“In the past 10 years, all three have been painted,” said Taylor.<br />

“Every three years, we do a washout to improve water quality.<br />

The EPA recommends one every five years. They inspect the concrete<br />

around the foundation. They also do vandalism repainting.<br />

Someone did that to the Ashbrook tank.”<br />

Public Service Director Matt Peoples said the city is taking a<br />

proactive approach with the trio of towers after years of reactive<br />

responses. The oldest tank in the Canal Winchester inventory<br />

dates to the 1970s.<br />

“It’s been a very good agreement for us,” said Peoples, adding<br />

that tanks can last between 50 to 100 years, depending on maintenance.“If<br />

we had to build a new tank, it would be in excess of $2<br />

million, so it is worth it to do the maintenance.”<br />

Taylor said an annual EPA required Drinking Water<br />

Consumer Confidence report recently published on the city’s website<br />

includes information on what the city treats and tests for in<br />

its water supply.<br />

CW and U.S. Census<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Taking the nation’s head count every 10 years is a daunting<br />

task and communities like Canal Winchester are being invited to<br />

help ensure everyone is part of the data.<br />

During the May 20 Canal Winchester City Council meeting,<br />

census partnership specialist Mark Boyd said the collection effort<br />

for the 2020 count is a massive operation with lots of moving parts<br />

and is the nation’s largest non-military operation.<br />

“It is mandated by the Constitution,” said Boyd. “It determines<br />

representation in Congress, determines funding allocations and<br />

data is used for planning and decision making.”<br />

Boyd said accuracy is important and that miscounts can impact<br />

funding in a large way. If an individual is not counted, the loss<br />

could be up to $18,000 over a 10-year period.<br />

In navigating barriers and challenges in participation–such as<br />

declining response rates and a distrust in the federal government–Boyd<br />

said his department is turning to social media and<br />

providing an option to complete a census securely online.<br />

“Completing the census online can save time and thousands<br />

and thousands in taxpayer dollars,” said Boyd. “We will knock on<br />

doors only when necessary.”<br />

Boyd asked the city to form a local volunteer Complete Count<br />

Committee to increase self-response rates, increase awareness<br />

and identify hard-to-count populations.<br />

County to repave some township roads<br />

By Rick Palsgrove<br />

<strong>Eastside</strong> Editor<br />

Franklin County will resurface several roads in Madison<br />

Township this summer.<br />

“The work will start in mid-<strong>June</strong> and be done by September,”<br />

said Carla Marable, director of communications for the Franklin<br />

County Engineer’s Office.<br />

Mark Mullenax, engineer technician for the Franklin County<br />

Engineer’s Office, said the resurfacing will involve milling and<br />

paving.<br />

“It’s simple mill and fill,” said Mullenax.<br />

The roads to be resurfaced in Madison Township this summer<br />

are:<br />

•Brice Road between Winchester Pike and Brice Meadow<br />

Drive;<br />

•Front Street between the railroad tracks and Ebright Road;<br />

Voltage spikes<br />

Water Reclamation Superintendent Steve Smith<br />

said a series of non-weather related voltage spikes<br />

impacted city equipment and resulted in $8,000 in<br />

damages, not including overtime related to the events.<br />

Around 2:30 a.m. April 22, there was a “phase failure”<br />

of unknown origin. If a phase goes under-volt–<br />

typically called a brown out–there is less damage<br />

compared with when one or more phases go over-volt,<br />

which can destroy equipment, even with phase protection<br />

devices.<br />

“In this case, it destroyed the VFD (variable frequency<br />

drive) and burned the windings of the pump<br />

motor. The VFD had to have a new mother board and<br />

display installed, and the motor had to be removed and<br />

rebuilt,” said Smith.<br />

On May 14 around 8 p.m., a similar condition<br />

destroyed the station controls at a pump station across<br />

from Brew Dog. Smith said there was a little rain that<br />

day, but nothing drastic.<br />

“It is important to know that there was nothing<br />

CENSUS<br />

Continued from page 1<br />

Mayor Mike Ebert said he and Community Affairs<br />

Director Amanda Lemke are forming a CCC comprised<br />

of school administrators, business leaders, residents,<br />

city employees and participants from Community<br />

Round Table meetings.<br />

“Everyone needs to be counted and counted only<br />

once,” said Ebert. “It’s important for everyone to be<br />

counted as it helps Canal Winchester and our region<br />

with highway funding and infrastructure funding,<br />

such as water and sewer. It also helps with the funding<br />

of hospitals, schools, social services, housing,<br />

roads, bridges and more.”<br />

Following the 2010 census, Canal Winchester<br />

reached city status, which Ebert admitted did not offer<br />

big benefits.<br />

“Having the name city attached to Canal<br />

Winchester throws us in the same category with much<br />

larger cities like Columbus and many others in the<br />

•Hamilton Road between Corbett Road and Lowery Court;<br />

•Hendron Road between Glendening Drive and State Route<br />

317; and<br />

•Pontius Road between London-Lancaster Road and Rohr<br />

Road.<br />

These five Madison Township roads are part of the county’s<br />

$3.8 million road resurfacing project that includes 10 other roads<br />

in other parts of the county.<br />

The project is funded by the motor vehicle license and gas tax<br />

fund. According to Marable, the Madison Township roads make up<br />

$1.1 million of the total project cost. The work will be performed<br />

by Kokosing Construction Company, Inc.<br />

Mullenax said the roads slated for resurfacing were selected by<br />

using a pavement condition index that measures how rough a road<br />

has become and by visual inspection annually.<br />

“We also consider how much the county maintenance department<br />

is spending to maintain a road,” said Mullenax.<br />

noticeable to customers–such as flooded basements<br />

or inadequate service–due to our having backup systems,”<br />

said Smith. “But these costs impact our bottom<br />

line.”<br />

Smith said he understands inclement weather can<br />

have consequences, but recent incidents were not<br />

related to bad weather.<br />

The city installed new power protection equipment<br />

at all of the area pump stations at a cost of over<br />

$15,000 in an attempt to prevent such occurrences, but<br />

Smith said protection only goes so far.<br />

“Just this last weekend (May 18-19) we experienced<br />

power outages and a similar phase failure that left us<br />

without power in various sections of the city,” Smith<br />

said. “The plant controls experienced the same phase<br />

failure, but fortunately it was not as severe and our<br />

protection equipment saved the day, though the phase<br />

imbalance lasted five hours.”<br />

According to Smith, situations involving power<br />

spikes/outages are happening much too often. While<br />

he acknowledged power is subject to weather, Smith<br />

said the increase in incidents and their severity, even<br />

in perfectly normal weather, is of great concern.<br />

“Typically, these things happen to power companies<br />

as they fail to adequately trim trees affecting power<br />

lines, or install pest guards in vulnerable equipment,”<br />

said Smith. “Matt Peoples is in discussions with South<br />

Central Power in an attempt to find out why we<br />

seemed to be plagued with these things so much of<br />

late.”<br />

state,” said Ebert. “It makes it more difficult for us to<br />

compete when it comes to grant awards and funding,<br />

however we have been doing pretty good with that in<br />

recent years.”<br />

While census reporting online is available, Ebert<br />

said there is a need for census workers locally and<br />

there are openings for a variety of full and part time<br />

jobs in the Canal Winchester area. The pay range is<br />

$14 to $18 an hour, depending on the job.<br />

“The earlier you apply, the better chance you have<br />

of landing a good-paying full time job,” said Ebert.<br />

The census count begins on Jan. 21, 2020 in<br />

Toksook Bay, Alaska. In March, nearly every household<br />

in the country will receive an invitation to<br />

respond to the 2020 census online, by mail or phone.<br />

Non-respondents will be contacted in person.<br />

census worker go to www.2020census.gov/jobs.

Schools’ finances improving<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Canal Winchester Schools Treasurer<br />

Nick Roberts recently presented his updated<br />

five-year forecast to the Canal<br />

Winchester Board of Education.<br />

He said enrollment is up beyond initial<br />

projects and that <strong>2019</strong> was “kind of an odd<br />

year.”<br />

“We had 154 kids come into the district,<br />

when the most we ever had was 90. We<br />

almost doubled for whatever reason,” said<br />

Roberts.“I hope it doesn’t become a new<br />

trend.”<br />

Thanks to growth in state funding combined<br />

with strong growth in income tax collections,<br />

Roberts said the district was able<br />

to build operational cash balances.<br />

“This enabled the district to transfer<br />

$7.5 million of its accumulated cash<br />

reserves in fiscal year 2017 to meet the district’s<br />

share of a state assisted construction<br />

project,” said Roberts. “Now that the onetime<br />

transfer is complete and the successful<br />

passage of the district’s renewal substitute<br />

levy in May <strong>2019</strong>, cash balances are<br />

projected to increase through fiscal year<br />

2023.”<br />

Fueled by significant state funding<br />

increases, revenue growth has been strong<br />

the past five years, averaging almost 5 percent<br />

per year.<br />

“State funding is anticipated to continue<br />

to grow through the end of the projection<br />

assuming a continuation of the current formula,”<br />

said Roberts.<br />

Income tax growth is expected to<br />

remain strong through the forecasted period.<br />

In fiscal year 2018, state funding comprised<br />

just over 42.7 percent of the district’s<br />

overall funding. Given the projected<br />

growth estimates primarily in state funding<br />

and income tax collections, the district’s<br />

revenue is expected to increase on<br />

average 2.16 percent per year from <strong>2019</strong><br />

through 2023.<br />

Real estate property values are expected<br />

to maintain steady growth through the<br />

forecast period. As a result, overall dollars<br />

generated from collections are expected to<br />

exhibit modest growth over the forecasted<br />

period, which includes the renewal of a<br />

substitute levy in <strong>2019</strong>.<br />

“Income tax collections supply approximately<br />

10.5 percent of the district’s overall<br />

operational revenue,” Roberts said.<br />

“Income tax growth has been strong over<br />

the last five-year period and has exceeded<br />

state and national trends following the<br />

2008 great recession. The forecast assumes<br />

future income tax growth to remain strong<br />

at a 3 percent annual growth rate.”<br />

According to the report, the updated<br />

forecast reflects improvement from a forecast<br />

filed this past spring.<br />

“Revenue is up thanks to an improved<br />

outlook for tax revenue and interest earnings,”<br />

said Roberts. “Expenditures are also<br />

improved thanks to scaled back estimates<br />

for additional salaries and lower transfers<br />

to the district’s permanent improvement<br />

fund. Although both sides of the ledger<br />

have improved and in May <strong>2019</strong> the district<br />

passed its term-limited emergency<br />

renewal for another five years, long-term<br />

financial stability still depends heavily on<br />

the renewal of the district’s substitute levy<br />

in 2024.”<br />

Biomedical innovations class<br />

Canal Winchester Schools are joining<br />

forces with Pickerington Schools in providing<br />

students with another science, technology,<br />

engineering and math option in furthering<br />

their education.<br />

Pickerington conducts a biomedical<br />

innovations class at the Ohio Health<br />

Pickerington Medical Campus. During its<br />

May 20 meeting, the Canal Winchester<br />

Board of Education approved an agreement<br />

with Pickerington to provide an<br />

upper level class option for their students.<br />

Six Canal Winchester students are projected<br />

to attend, starting with the <strong>2019</strong>-20<br />

school year, at the Ohio Health campus.<br />

The class covers topics such as biomedical<br />

engineering, clinical medicine, public<br />

health and physiology. Pickerington’s biomedical<br />

science program was nationally<br />

certified in 2015.<br />

According to Assistant Superintendent<br />

Kiya Hunt, Canal Winchester currently<br />

offers the first three levels of the course,<br />

but not the fourth level offered by<br />

Pickerington.<br />

“It’s a great opportunity for our students,”<br />

said Hunt. “They can get internship<br />

opportunities. They’ll be able to shadow as<br />

well and ER opportunities are there at<br />

Ohio Health. It’s something we can’t recreate.”<br />

When I leave the theater with a smile on<br />

to be free of some horrible movie I had just<br />

If you had not heard of “Booksmart”<br />

before reading this review, you are forgiven.<br />

While it is not an obscure feature found<br />

only through a streaming service, it was<br />

not heavily marketed by its studio either.<br />

This I consider a true shame as Annapurna<br />

Pictures had a complete gem on its hands.<br />

The film follows best friends Amy and<br />

Molly (Kaitlyn Dever and Beanie<br />

Feldstein) whose high school days are coming<br />

to a close. As freshman, the duo made a<br />

pact to put studying ahead of partying and<br />

are rapidly become aware of all the good<br />

times they may have missed with their<br />

peers.<br />

Wanting to do something out of the<br />

norm, the two debate the merits of attending<br />

a party but ultimately decide against it<br />

after weighing the pros and cons. Then,<br />

just as they have settled on plans for a solo<br />

date night, Molly discovers that the peers<br />

she deemed hard partying slackers are also<br />

getting into elite universities and her world<br />

comes crumbling down.<br />

She laments the fact that she, the class<br />

The problem they<br />

discover is that no one will answer their<br />

calls when they ask for the address to a<br />

shindig hosted by the popular guy Nick<br />

(Mason Gooding). Though not complete<br />

outcasts, they figure it is because they<br />

would only call for academic reasons thus<br />

the lack of response. Sporting fake ID’s to<br />

access academic libraries, they put their<br />

for “Nick’s aunt’s house.”<br />

outdoor concert series is <strong>June</strong> 21 and July 19 from<br />

6:30-9 p.m. in Stradley Park, located in historic downtown<br />

Canal Winchester.<br />

<strong>June</strong>’s Music in the Park concert features a display<br />

of tractors and farm equipment, a small farmers’ market,<br />

and classic country entertainment by Jack Fox &<br />

The County Line Band.<br />

July’s Music in the Park concert will feature the<br />

On July 12 and Aug. 9 at dusk, the park will become<br />

the year are put to the test by a lonely student<br />

looking for friends, a potential serial<br />

killer, low phone batteries, and hidden<br />

secrets related to post-high school plans<br />

that come to light.<br />

While comparisons have been made to<br />

the 2007 coming-of-age comedy<br />

“Superbad,” I found “Booksmart” to be<br />

slightly more fun and realistic than its<br />

genre counterpart. To be clear, neither<br />

reinvent the wheel for high school debauchery<br />

but there is a freshness and sincerity to<br />

“Booksmart” that other similar themed<br />

movies lack.<br />

Judging by opening day box office numbers,<br />

“Booksmart” may not be in theaters<br />

for long but I would recommend making an<br />

attempt to see it before its gone. Not only<br />

would you be supporting something midbudget<br />

and non-Disney remake, but you<br />

also get the pleasure of watching something<br />

that is both hilarious and capable of<br />

lifting your mood.<br />

Students’ efforts help stock the CW Food Pantry<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Barber Museum<br />

The National Barber Museum in Canal<br />

Winchester is located at 135 Franklin St.<br />

(behind the former CW High School building).<br />

The museum showcases art, artifacts,<br />

and memorabilia from decades of barbering<br />

— from the early days when surgeons<br />

and barbers served as one to the present<br />

when those seeking a trim. Hours are<br />

Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.<br />

or by appointment (614) 837-8400.<br />

Canal Winchester sixth graders are<br />

helping fill the shelves of the Canal<br />

Winchester Food Pantry for the summer<br />

for needy students who might not get<br />

breakfast and lunch on a regular basis<br />

while school is on break.<br />

Nearly 300 students spent two days in<br />

mid-May shopping for non-perishable food<br />

items at Kroger with $3,600 of the $6,300<br />

they raised during spring and fall<br />

fundraisers. Students also held a food<br />

drive outside the store on May 11 and collected<br />

387 items.<br />

Following the fundraisers, students also<br />

left bags on doorsteps for city residents<br />

willing to fill them with non-perishable<br />

items and collected the bags a few days<br />

later before school was out.<br />

“With the exception of busing costs,<br />

which the school district covers for us, we<br />

were able to purchase everything we need<br />

to make this project go smoothly,” said<br />

teacher Kelly Best. “This year we also<br />

wanted to donate to the BrockStrong<br />

Foundation and add the Kroger shopping<br />

component as well, so we held a spring<br />

fundraiser because we knew we'd need<br />

additional money.”<br />

Best said the project is called the Brock<br />

Walk in memory of Brock Johnson.<br />

Students learned which items the pantry<br />

needs most, were given a budget and then<br />

required to spend a particular percentage<br />

of their budget in certain store departments.<br />

“They studied the Kroger website, made<br />

a list and then purchased their items. To<br />

date, they have collected 3,108 items. Our<br />

annual goal is 11,111 items, a nod to Brock<br />

since everything the foundation does is in<br />

the 11,’s” said Best.“This is the fourth year<br />

we’ve completed the project as a school<br />

project. It was initially started by a group<br />

of five students that are now sophomores.<br />

They helped complete a smaller version of<br />

the concept as a 4-H project.”<br />

As elementary school children, the original<br />

five students shared their ideas and<br />

through research and visits to classrooms<br />

from a food pantry representative, it was<br />

discovered that the food pantry was running<br />

out of food during the summer.<br />

Started initially as a 4H project by<br />

Best’s daughter Brooklyn, the annual<br />

endeavor is now part of the school’s Project<br />

Based Learning initiative, which challenges<br />

students to find a real world problem<br />

in their community and try to solve it.<br />

Brooklyn said people don’t tend to think<br />

about what happens to children who go<br />

without breakfast or lunch during the<br />

summer when school is out.<br />

“I came up with the idea to place bags<br />

around town saying what we were doing,”<br />

said Brooklyn, who enlisted the help of<br />

four other friends. “The next day we went<br />

back and picked up bags and had 6,000<br />

items to take to the pantry. Then my mom<br />

took the idea and brought it to another<br />

level. The second year, we went from five<br />

people to 120 people. It’s amazing to see<br />

how far it’s come and there are a lot of families<br />

that will get food this summer.”<br />

The annual endeavor is now part of the<br />

school’s Project Based Learning initiative,<br />

which challenges students to find a real<br />

world problem in their community and try<br />

to solve it.<br />

According to food pantry administrator<br />

Aletha Mullins, in years past, the pantry<br />

has struggled during the summer break in<br />

receiving food donations in contrast to the<br />

winter holiday season.<br />

“During the summer it is something<br />

that just is not on people’s radar,” said<br />

Mullins. “In the summer we do see an<br />

increase of clients coming to the food<br />

pantry. This project is very important to<br />

us. It helps to provide food to get us<br />

through the summer and fall months. We<br />

could not do what we do without partners<br />

like Canal Winchester Local Schools. We<br />

are grateful that they are able to do this for<br />

us.”<br />

Best said projects like the Brock Walk<br />

are important because students need to<br />

learn to be creative, inventive thinkers and<br />

need as many real life experiences as possible.<br />

“They need to be active and giving<br />

members of their community when they<br />

can,” said Best. “This project is a great way<br />

of showing them what can happen when<br />

everyone chips in just a little.”<br />

The food pantry is available to anyone<br />

who lives in the Canal Winchester School<br />

District, Bloom-Carroll School District,<br />

Lithopolis and anyone who lives in<br />

Fairfield County. Call 614-834-4700 to<br />

make a pantry appointment. Hours of<br />

operation are Monday through Wednesday<br />

from 1-3 p.m. and the second and fourth<br />

Wednesday of the month is from 4-6 p.m.<br />

For information, call 614-834-4700.<br />

Drug Drop Box<br />

The Madison Township Police provide<br />

an opiate prescription “Drug Drop Box” for<br />

the community. It is located in the lobby of<br />

the Madison Township Police, 4567<br />

Madison Lane. It is accessible to the public<br />
