Two warehouses proposed for

Saltzgaber Road have hit a snag.

On June 3, the Groveport Planning and

Zoning Commission voted 3-2 to not recommend

a proposal from Paul Hemmer

Companies to build a 275,000 square foot

warehouse and a 240,000 square foot warehouse

on 37.6 acres located on the east side

of Saltzgaber Road south of Groveport

Road.

The proposal now goes to full Groveport

City Council for consideration where it

would need five votes out of six for

approval since the planning and zoning

commission did not recommend the project.

Council will vote on the ordinances regarding

the project at its June 24 meeting.

As part of the proposal, Saltzgaber

Road could be widened to three lanes with

a 100 foot diameter truck turnaround culde-sac

placed on the south end of the road

near Toy Road. Also, a 225 foot (westbound)

and a 150 foot (eastbound) left turn

lane could be provided from Groveport

Road to Saltzgaber Road as well as an 125

foot (northbound) left turn lane on

Saltzgaber at Groveport Road.

Groveport City Engineer Steve Farst

said about 440 feet of Saltzgaber Road is

within the city of Groveport while the

remaining portion of the road is in Madison

Township. The road has a 48 foot right of

way and the proposed improvements would

widen the right of way to 60 feet. The proposed

cul-de-sac would not be a dead end

as cars and emergency vehicles could still

pass through.

The developer would pay for the road

improvements.

“We would require the developer to pay

for any off-site improvements required for

their development,” Groveport City

Administrator Marsha Hall said previously.

“The only items we (the city) would pay

for are those improvements responding to

background traffic.”

Adam Hemmer, of Paul Hemmer

Companies, said the road improvements

would take place while the warehouses

were being built and that these improvements,

as well as the accompanying water

and sewer amenities, would enhance the

area. He also said the design of the buildings

calls for the buildings to have a retail

appearance rather than “an industrial

look.”

“We did our best to mitigate the buildings’

visual impact,” said Hemmer.

According to the Saltzgaber Road warehousing

project’s development plan, if

council approves the project, work on the

road improvements and first warehouse

could begin in the second half of 2019 and

work on the second warehouse could start

in the second half of 2020.

Speaking at the planning and zoning

meeting, Toy Road resident Laurie Lyles

said she and her neighbors have worked

with officials for 15 years to try control

traffic on Toy, Saltzgaber, and Swisher

roads. She said this proposed project would

compound the area’s traffic problems.

“When do the residents become more

important than warehouses?” asked Lyles.

Groveport Mayor Lance Westcamp, who

is chairman of the planning and zoning

commission, said he voted against the proposal

due to traffic and safety concerns.

“It would put a lot of people and traffic on

Groveport Road and other nearby roads,”

said Westcamp. “I like the proposed road

improvements, but I don’t think they solve

the problems of congestion and truck traffic.”

Councilwoman Becky Hutson, who

serves on the planning and zoning commission,

said she opposed the plan because she

feels it does not comply with the city’s

Gateway Corridor Plan for the area.

“Plus, our residents are telling us they

don’t want any more warehouses and that

they want something different from warehouses,”

said Hutson.

Levy, bond issue, or both?

Plus, school building repairs

and open classroom updates

By Rick Palsgrove

Southeast Editor

The Groveport Madison Board of Education plans to

decide at its June 26 meeting whether to place a levy,

levy and bond issue, or a bond issue on the November

ballot.

“A decision has to be made by the next meeting in

order to make it onto the November ballot,” said

Groveport Madison Schools Superintendent Garilee

Ogden.

Ogden recommended the board place a request on

the Nov. 5 ballot to renew the existing, 5-year, 6.68

mill operating levy with no tax increase. She said the

district could then consider placing a bond issue on

either the May 2020 or November 2020 ballot to obtain

funding for potential new buildings.

Before pursuing a bond issue for new schools,

Ogden said the district needs to establish an overall

plan that includes the look of the buildings, where the

building would be, the order the buildings would be

built, and where students transition

to attend schools while

new buildings are constructed.

The current operating levy

will expire on Dec. 31, 2019.

According to school officials, if

the levy is not renewed the district

will see deficits of $2.7 million

in 2020 and $5.6 million in

2021. Also, if the levy is not

renewed, the district’s cash balance

by June 2023 will be

reduced to $3.4 million.

Ogden has said if the levy is

not renewed the “consequences

could be severe” with potential

cuts and reductions starting in

the fall of 2020. What those cuts

and reductions would be has not

yet been determined.

“We will be as efficient and

fiscally responsible as we can

be,” said Ogden. “If the levy fails

again, it will have drastic

impacts on our curriculum and

The city’s Gateway Corridor Plan

addresses redevelopment along two of the

main roadway corridors into town: the

South Hamilton Road corridor between

U.S. 33 and Bixby Road; and the west

Groveport Road corridor from State Route

317 west to Swisher Road.

The west Groveport Road corridor currently

is a mix of warehouses, small businesses,

and residences. It features two

areas for redevelopment: Groveport Road

from Swisher Road to State Route 317; and

Saltzgaber Road from Groveport Road

south to Toy Road. The 37 acre tract on the

east side of Saltzgaber Road at Groveport

Road is “one of the few remaining vacant

parcels in the immediate area,” according

“We will be as efficient and fiscally responsible

as we can be.”

programs.”

To place an issue on the Nov. 5 ballot, the board

must file a resolution of necessity to do so by July 7

and a resolution to proceed by Aug. 7. The board must

decide if it will place an operating levy by itself on the

ballot and wait to place a bond issue on a future ballot;

or place a levy and bond issue on the ballot. The

board’s next meeting is June 26 at 7 p.m. in the

District Service Center, 4400 Marketing Place, Suite

B, Groveport.

Repairs to existing school buildings

Groveport Madison Deputy Superintendent Jamie

Grube said roofing repairs are being made to the district’s

schools where needed.

“We have roof leaks in lots of different places,” said

Grube.

He said roof leak repairs have been made so far at

Middle School Central and Groveport Elementary.

“Groveport Elementary is not leaking right now,”

said Grube. “But we’re assessing to see if the curved

metal vents on the roof are still necessary and to see if

they could be a source of leaks.”

Grube added the district is obtaining quotes for

blacktop and concrete repairs and for painting work.

Grube said building maintenance and repairs, as

well as preventative maintenance, have been ongoing

and that 98 percent of the specific repair work requests

have been completed this year.

“We’re trying to make our current facilities as functional,

safe, and as pleasant as possible,” said Grube.

“We’re doing our best to maintain what we have.”

Upon hearing Grube’s report about building repairs

and the work’s positive impact on the learning environment

in the schools, board member Nancy Gillespie

said, “I love it - safe, dry, and warm.”

Open classrooms at middle schools

Grube said district officials looked into constructing

walls in the open classroom areas of Middle School

North and Middle School South, but found the idea to

be costly and not feasible.

“If you enclose the rooms by adding walls, because of

legal restrictions you must add sprinklers or add fire

rated corridors,” said Chris Dumford of VSWC

Architects. “Both options are expensive and hard to do.”

to the Gateway Corridor Plan.

Groveport Finance Director/Assistant

Administrator Jeff Green has stated the

Gateway Corridor Plan helps the city

address: recommended land use, appropriate

zoning, overall aesthetic, what types of

commercial development would best complement

the existing industrial development,

and what the best uses are for

vacant land.

The Gateway Corridor Plan considers

commercial development that would be

compatible with existing industrial and

commercial development. This could

include restaurants, gas stations, last-mile

logistics providers and mixed-use flex

space.

Another solution proposed for Toy Road

By Rick Palsgrove

Southeast Editor

Another plan is underway to improve

road conditions and traffic congestion on Toy

Road, Swisher Road, and Saltzgaber Road.

“We’re proposing roadway and drainage

maintenance improvements,” said Fritz

Crosier, chief deputy of engineering for

Franklin County Engineer Cornell

Robertson.

Representatives from the Franklin

County Engineer’s Office, the city of

Groveport, and Madison Township met

with area residents on June 4 to discuss

the plan.

Residents living on Toy Road,

Saltzgaber Road, and Swisher Road have

been frustrated for several years by the

poor conditions of these roads as well as the

heavy traffic from nearby commercial warehouses

that use these narrow, formerly

rural roads. The residents are seeking relief

from the vehicle and semi-truck traffic they

say damages the roads, tears up yards,

knocks over mailboxes (one resident said he

has replaced his mailbox 11 times due to it

being damaged by traffic), causes noise,

generates trash, and creates congestion.

The three roads have the added problem

of falling within several different government

jurisdictions including Madison

Township, the towns of Groveport and

Obetz, and Franklin County. The three

roads total 2 miles with 1.5 miles in

Madison Township and a half mile in

Groveport.

“All three roads are in poor condition,”

said Crosier.

Crosier said the plan is to resurface all

three roads, improve drainage, consider

installing speed humps in places to slow

down traffic, and construct back-to-back

cul-de-sac bulbs on Toy Road just east of

Centerpoint Parkway.

The cul-de-sacs will close Toy Road,

except for emergency vehicles. The closure

is not permanent and the county is not

vacating that portion of the road that will

be closed. Crosier said the closure will

allow the county to see how it impacts the

surrounding area.

“The cul-de-sac bulbs will keep truck traffic

to the west and residential traffic to the

east,” said Crosier. “It separates commercial

Toy Road from residential Toy Road.”

Additionally, Crosier said the speed

limit on Swisher Road was reduced from 45

mph to 40 mph in April. Toy Road and

Saltzgaber Road have a 35 mph speed

limit. Crosier said the county could have an

opportunity to go back and “take another

look” at the Swisher Road speed limit in

the future.

Crosier said the county is designing the

plan, developing cost estimates, seeing how

utilities and property owners would be

impacted, and seeking funding sources.

The plan will need the approval of the

Franklin County Commissioners and resolutions

of support from Groveport, Madison

Township, and Obetz. Funding sources

could include the Ohio Public Works

Commission and local funds.

“We’re not waiting on developers for

funding any more,” said Crosier. “We will

also need an intergovernmental agreement

(between the county, city of Groveport, and

Madison Township) to determine who pays

for what.”

Crosier said he anticipates construction

on the project would begin in 2020.

Previous plan scrapped

Last summer a $2.8 million proposal

was made to reconstruct about a half mile

of Toy Road that is located in the city of

Groveport from Centerpoint Parkway to

Swisher Road. The plan included a cul-desac

on Toy Road west of Swisher Road.

The city of Groveport had applied for, and

received, approval for an Ohio Public Works

Commission grant of $1.1 million plus a

$433,254 loan to help fund the city’s portion

of the project’s cost. The county was set to

contribute $218,757 of in-kind monies. A

prospective developer had proposed to kick

in $1 million towards the project.

However, according to Groveport City

Engineer Steve Farst, the developer had a

condition that it had to be successful in

acquiring real estate in the area before it

would provide its share of the funding.

“The developer could not obtain the purchase

agreements, realized it could not

make it happen, and withdrew their $1

million,” said Farst. “The city could not

make up the difference. We were disappointed.”

In April, Groveport officials notified the

OPWC the city could not proceed with the

project without a private financial partner

and so had to decline the OPWC funding.

column

The functional art of street drains

A few years ago I wrote a column about

the interesting decorative designs that

appear atop a variety of manhole covers on

Groveport’s streets and how these objects

were examples of functional art.

Editor’s Notebook

That column included

photos of some

of the manhole covers

and it received an

Rick

Palsgrove

amazingly positive response from readers. So

much so that some readers over the years

suggested I write a similar column about -

wait for it - the functional art of street drain

covers! This column is for all of you.

Much like the manhole covers, the

street drain covers have an artistic nature

about them while still fulfilling their role of

helping water drain away. They come in

various shapes and sizes with their slot

openings, which allow water to pass

through, mostly arranged in grid patterns.

(See photos with this column.)

One of my favorites is a cone shaped

drain cover with web-like holes whose peak

rises a few inches. It’s the only cone shaped

drain cover like it I could find in town. It

looks a lot older than many of the other

street drains in town, but it’s still here

doing it’s job. This drain cover is located in

a parking lot so I can only guess that its

peak was designed to prevent vehicles from

driving over the drain.

Messenger photos by Rick Palsgrove

This cone shaped drain is located near a

parking lot. It appears to be very old.

A drain cover I came across in an alley,

and which I like the design of, is much

smaller than the other drain covers around

town. It’s circular with narrow slots in the

center of the circle. Its design reminds me

of the look of a small 45 rpm vinyl record.

But then again, I wonder if this drain cover

is actually some sort of vent cover because

nearby there’s a larger square drain cover.

There are several kinds of rectangular

as well as square drain covers around town

with varying kinds of slot patterns. The

older ones on Blacklick Street have symmetrical

slots in horizontal rows parallel to

the outer shape of the whole cover. The

newer rectangular drain covers have slots

that run across the rectangular cover and

the slots are angled to enhance water flow.

I did find one rectangular drain cover

with oval shaped slots that looked quite

old. I found a square drain cover with wavy

shaped slots that mimic the movement of

water. There are also large, circular drain

A wavy grid drain in an alley.

covers in various places with rows of rectangular

slot openings arranged within the

circle in geometric harmony.

The main difference between the artistic

merits of the drain covers when compared

to the manhole covers I wrote about

years ago is that the manhole covers have

more decorative flourishes manufactured

into them while the more plain drain covers’

pleasing aspects have more to do with

the simplicity of their shapes. (I remember

one manhole cover that was covered with

stars Sadly, I think this cover was later

broken when a vehicle ran over it while

making a turn. Other manhole covers had

diamond shaped lines etched into them,

another looked like a waffle, and so on.)

Beauty is all around us, even in iron,

man-made industrial objects below our feet

and vehicle tires. We only need to be aware

and watch for this beauty to appreciate it.

FAA grant for Rickenbacker Airport

PAGE 6 - SOUTHEAST MESSENGER - June 16, 2019

Rickenbacker International Airport is

slated to receive $15 million from the

Federal Aviation Administration for airport

improvements, including runway

upgrades, that will support a projected tenfold

increase in cargo activity over the next

20 years.

“The FAA grant and these improvements

align with Rickenbacker’s growth

strategies over the next two decades,” said

Joseph R. Nardone, President & CEO of

the Columbus Regional Airport Authority

which oversees the cargo-focused airport.

“We are grateful to our Ohio congressional

delegation and U.S. Secretary of

Transportation Elaine Chao for recognizing

Rickenbacker’s economic importance to

the region and its critical role in international

commerce.”

“Infrastructure is the shot in the arm

our economy needs to continue its growth,

and this investment in Central Ohio is no

exception,” Congressman Steven Stivers

said. “Rickenbacker is a critical component

of our community for tourism and business,

and maintaining their facilities is in

everyone’s best interest. I’m glad to see

that the FAA understands that and is committed

to fulfilling the full grant amount

that was requested for these crucial

repairs.”

Rickenbacker is among a select group of

airports to benefit from the Bipartisan

Budget Act of 2018 that made available an

additional $1.5 billion of supplemental

Airport Improvement Program funding.

This budget deal was signed into law in

February 2018 and was made possible

through the support of Congressman

Stivers, Congresswoman Joyce Beatty, and

Senators Sherrod Brown and Rob

Portman.

Recognized in the industry as a new

global gateway for cargo, Rickenbacker

contributes 15,280 jobs, $880 million in

annual payroll and $2.5 billion in annual

economic impact in Ohio.

Located in Columbus, Ohio,

Rickenbacker International Airport is one

of the world’s few cargo-dedicated airports.

Rickenbacker is within a one-day drive to

nearly half of the U.S. population.

Township needs road money

By Linda Dillman

Staff Writer

The Madison Township trustees are

finding it difficult to maintain and improve

roadways without an infusion of additional

cash into the road department budget.

According to Madison Township

Administrator Susan Brobst, the township

ran a 3-mill, five-year road levy in 2002

that lost in all township precincts except

one. They came back three years later with

a 2.9-mill levy, which lost by only nine

votes.

“So, every vote does count,” Brobst said

during a June 11 trustees’ meeting.

Township Trustee Chairman John

Pritchard presented four different options

the trustees are considering, including

running a general fund levy impacting all

township residents, including those in

Canal Winchester and Groveport; place a

bridge fund levy on the ballot affecting

only residents in the unincorporated areas

of the township; doing nothing; or administratively

raise taxes through inside millage.

The last option would not involve a ballot

issue since the township has the ability

to increase millage up to a certain threshold.

In this case, there is less than half a

mill available.

Pritchard said if the trustees choose the

fourth option of raising inside millage,

there are two methods they could use–

raise it by itself or use part of a potential

$10 million fire department budget carryover

by rescinding old levies.

“We’re investigating to see if it’s smart

to do that for the entire township,” said

Pritchard, who said rescinding old levies

would in no way impact service. “The bottom

line is something’s got to be done.

We’ll look at everything and come to a conclusion.”

In May, Public Works Superintendent

Dave Watkins said it costs approximately

$150,000 per mile to renovate a road,

which is money the township does not have

in its budget for areas like Blacklick

Estates or rural areas.

Township officials indicated that the

longer the wait, the more work and more

expensive the situation becomes. If nothing

is done, Watkins said the roadways could

turn to gravel.

Summer trustee meeting schedule

The trustees are starting their summer

round of two meetings per month starting

June 25 and possibly lasting into

September.

“We’ll have two meetings a month on an

as-needed basis,” said Brobst. “There won’t

be any presentations or service awards

during the second meeting of the month,

but there could board action and we’ll still

have public comments.”

Warehouses still on hold

By Rick Palsgrove

Southeast Editor

Groveport City Council’s vote on a proposal

by the Pizzuti Companies to build

two warehouses on South Hamilton Road

has been postponed until June 24.

Council plans to discuss the project with

at its June 17 committee of the whole

meeting at 5:30 p.m. in the municipal

building located at 655 Blacklick St.

Concerns about the potential for

increased traffic on South Hamilton Road

generated by the project prompted council

to postpone the vote on the final development

plan for the two warehouses. Also,

some council members expressed concern

that the city’s residents do not want more

warehouses in that area. The postponement

allows Pizzuti Companies officials and

city staff to further review the traffic issues

and explore options.

The Pizzuti Companies wants to build

two warehouses on 44.4 acres at 4500 S.

Hamilton Road. One warehouse would be

324,000 square feet and the other would be

252,000 square feet. Groveport Development

Director Jeff Green said the property has a

15 year property tax abatement.

Phil Rasey, vice president of development

for the Pizzuti Companies, said the

buildings would be “last mile” distribution

centers with multiple tenants.

If the two warehouses are built, traffic

going in and out of the development would

use the traffic signal at South Hamilton

Road (State Route 317) and Higgins

Boulevard/Director’s Boulevard. A traffic

study was done and the plan calls for

improvements to and modernization of the

intersection.

Green said existing zoning allows for

warehouses to be built on the site and that

the buildings fit with the city’s Gateway

Corridor Plan. He said if retail businesses

were built there it would create continuous

traffic all day on South Hamilton Road.

The city’s Gateway Corridor Plan

addresses redevelopment along two of the

main roadway corridors into town: the South

Hamilton Road corridor between U.S. 33 and

Bixby Road; and the Groveport Road corridor

from State Route 317 west to Swisher Road.

The Gateway Corridor Plan cites potential

uses that include an estimated 300,000

to 400,000 square feet of building space on

the 44.4 acre 4500 S. Hamilton Road site.

When asked how The Pizzuti

Companies’ proposal fits in with the city’s

vision for the Gateway Corridor Plan in the

Hamilton Road corridor, Green said, “The

developers are taking great pains with

landscaping, buffers and other site features

to create a more attractive and less

industrial appearance. These buildings

will be situated between other similar

structures, it will be compatible.”

$178,000 to local schools, universities, nonprofits

and local governments to advance their

efforts to reduce their reliance on the Franklin

County Sanitary Landfill. Projects ranged from

funding composting services in school cafeterias, to

purchasing water bottle refilling stations for travelers

passing through John Glenn International

Airport and locating recycling containers in Uptown

Westerville, the historic heart of the community,

just to name a few. SWACO is offering additional

funding opportunities for local organizations this

summer.

Beginning in July, applications for projects

occurring in 2020 will be accepted as part of

SWACO’s Community Waste Reduction grant program.

Franklin County schools, universities, nonprofits

and local governments including parks are

eligible and projects submitted should implement

long-lasting and innovative sustainability practices.

Applications will be accepted between July 1

and Sept. 30. Applications will be considered

based on how well they will divert materials from

the landfill by either reducing the amount of waste

that will be created, facilitating reuse, recycling,

composting or providing outreach and education.

Grants range from $5,000 to $35,000 and can

be used to purchase recycling or other diversion

equipment, supplies, materials and services.

Grant recipients are required to contribute 25%

toward the cost of the project.

Leak temporarily closes the

Groveport swimming pool

The Groveport Recreation Department

announced that the Groveport Aquatic

Center (outdoor water park) temporarily

suspended operation on June 6.

According to city officials, the facility

will remain closed until an outside firm

locates the source or sources of a substantial

water leak and can make necessary

repairs. City officials said the water level at

the outdoor pool was fine at the end of the

2018 outdoor pool season. A leak was found

in mid-May during the fill of the 450,000

gallon pool. City staff along with scuba

divers could not locate the leak. A firm was

hired to locate the leak(s), but was not able

to fit Groveport into their schedule until

early June. The city of Groveport decided to

open the pool despite the leak to give residents

and customers an opportunity to use

the facility. The city will notify season pass

holders when the pool is back open for use.

Visit www.groveportrec.com and Facebook

page for updates. The city of Groveport will

calculate time lost and provide season pass

holders with a pro-rated refund.

“We apologize for this inconvenience,”

the city stated in an official statement.

“This is the first time in our 16 years of

operation that we have experienced such a

leak. Although unpreventable, they are

common, especially given the size and age

of our facility, and the freeze thaw cycle in

our Ohio winters.”

Groveport Recreation Director Kyle

Lund said thus far the leak detection company

has found some small cracks in the

pool bottom and repaired those cracks.

“On June 8, the leak location company

located actual water line breaks which feed

the zero-depth entry leisure pool,” said

Lund. “Staff has excavated around the

areas, and is waiting for the leak detection

company to return to the site and run a

camera in the lines to check for additional

line breaks within the same lines. At this

point, we are not sure when the facility we

re-open.”

Relay For Life

Canal Winchester and Groveport residents

will join together at the American

Cancer Society’s Relay For Life of Canal

Winchester and Groveport.

The event runs from 4 p.m. until midnight

on June 22 at Canal Winchester High

School, 300 Washington St., Canal

Winchester. Relay teams, which independently

fund raise throughout the year, connect

with one another at Relay for Life to

raise funds and awareness together, to celebrate,

and to focus on creating a world

without cancer.

Featured activities will include a “Miss

Relay” Pageant Walk for male contestants,

theme laps, inflatable games for kids, and a

silent auction. A luminaria ceremony will

take place at 10 p.m. The luminaria ceremony

honors cancer survivors and those

who have lost the battle to cancer as well.

During the ceremony, Canal Winchester

Mayor Mike Ebert, who recently battled

two forms of cancer, is expected to share

some thoughts with the audience.

Local cancer survivors are invited to

take part in the Relay for Life opening ceremony

and “Survivors’ Lap” just after 4

p.m. Survivors are then invited to attend a

special "Survivors’ Dinner” beginning at 5

p.m. in the high school cafeteria.

Town Hall, 648 Main St., at 7 p.m. You will

have the opportunity to walk, physically or

virtually, down Main Street listening to

stories and facts about the many businesses

and residents that called that street

home.

It allows long-time residents the

chance to reminisce, while providing information

to newer residents about the historical

Many lives were touched by this organ donor

By Linda Dillman

Staff Writer

When Andrea Taylor needed a new

heart in 2017 to replace one damaged by a

virus years earlier, little did she know a

teenager she was praying for to recover

from a motorcycle crash would be the one to

give her new life.

Taylor, a Groveport Madison High

School graduate and former Groveport

Madison teacher, never had a heart issue

until her junior year in college. The virus, a

simple cold, got into her bloodstream and

settled in her heart.

“A fluke, if you will,” Taylor said.

“Unfortunately, this fluke caused me to

need a pacemaker with a defibrillator to

get me through the next 17 years.”

She graduated from Ohio Dominican

University and began a teaching career

that spanned 10 years before learning in

February 2015 her heart was failing. A

year later, she suffered a stroke and was so

weak she slept up to 20 hours a day.

“Her daughter’s choice of being

an organ donor saved so many people

at such a devastating time in her

family’s life. This gives her mother

comfort in knowing that her daughter’s

heart is five minutes from her.

She can listen to her daughter’s

heart. She can see the impact her

daughter has made in my life and in

the lives of my family.”

- Andrea Taylor

“On Jan. 21, 2017, I was listed on the

heart transplant list,” said Taylor. In the

meantime, she learned on Facebook of the

crash involving 18-year-old Lydia Stewart, an

Eastland-Fairfield Career Center graduate.

“I prayed so hard for her. She was so

young. She had her whole life ahead of

her,” said Taylor.

On March 6, 2017, Taylor received a call

from the transplant coordinators telling

her that they had found a heart for her.

Before going into surgery, she again

posted on Facebook asking for prayers for

herself, her family, the doctors and the

donor’s family. A message came through

asking Taylor what she thought were the

chances that Lydia was her donor.

Stewart had succumbed to her injuries

and donated her organs including her eyes

and tissue. According to Taylor, Lydia

saved three people by donating her heart,

kidneys, pancreas and liver.

Two people in Egypt were able to see

again with cornea donations and 50 people

could have a better life because of Lydia’s

tissue donations.

It was not until eight weeks after the

heart transplant that Taylor learned

Stewart was her donor.

“I received a letter in the mail from

Lifeline of Ohio,” recalled Taylor. “I was so

excited to open it. I was standing at the end

of the driveway. I stood there with tears

streaming down my face as I read it.”

Taylor met Lydia’s mother, Kelly, the

day after Mother’s Day in 2017. When

Kelly arrived, she told the family they previously

met each other when Lydia was

only six years old and the Stewarts bought

a camper from Taylor’s family.

Kelly said she was buying the camper

for Lydia because she showed horses in 4-H

and they spent a lot of time at the fair.

“What are the chances? She slept in the

same bunks I had slept in,” said Taylor. “I

understand my case may not be the norm

for organ donation, but her daughter’s

choice of being an organ donor saved so

many people at such a devastating time in

her family’s life. This gives her mother

“Dark Phoenix” is a boring mess of wasted potential

It is inevitable that any theatrical adaptation

of the ‘X-Men’ comics is going to try

to bring the “Dark Phoenix” saga to life.

For those unfamiliar with the comics, it

is a beloved arc that depicts the struggle of

the mild mannered mutant Jean Grey as

mind and ability merge with that of an allpowerful

cosmic force capable of mass

destruction. It is an enduring storyline for

the devastation wrought, the mental

anguish she and her loved ones go though,

and the showcasing of the unmistakable

love the X-Men have for each other despite

the horror they can inflict.

In 2006, the third installment in the

original ‘X-Men’ movie franchise attempted

to bring this complex arc to the silver

screen and failed spectacularly. Instead of

depicting Jean (played then by Famke

Janssen) as a good woman struggling with

her humanity, she is this wordless, scowling

being who stands in the background

glaring evilly and breaking stuff.

To this day, I still harbor so much

loathing for the film’s creators for failing to

deliver on what should have been a great

story.

So, when the ‘X-Men’ movie-verse was

rebooted in 2011, I braced myself for the

eventual reintroduction of Jean Grey and

another attempt at the “Dark Phoenix” storyline.

And then when she came onto the

scene in the abysmal Apocalypse five years

later, I hoped they would do right by the

character and actress (played by “Game of

Thrones” star Sophie Turner) and take the

time to fully develop the thread. Alas, my

hopes were dashed shortly thereafter when

it was announced that not only would their

next film be the Phoenix storyline, but it

would be written and directed by Simon

Kinberg, the man who wrote the screenplay

for “The Last Stand.”

Since the ‘X-Men’ is like the

‘Terminator’ franchise to me, I cannot find

it within myself to fully quit these movies

so I had to see what fresh horror was done.

To be clear, it is as bad as I thought it

would be but it is a slight step up from “The

Last Stand.” And by slight I mean in the

slightest sense of the word.

entertainment

about the risky mission and begs Professor

Xavier (James McAvoy) to turn down the

request. As usual, he overrides her concerns

and then tells her to bring some of

the youngest members to assist for experience

sake.

While up in space, the fears of Raven

are justified when they discover that a

“solar flare” is threatening to destroy

everything in the vicinity.

Then, just when it appears when the

mission is over and they all made it

through unscathed, an accident befalls

Jean and she is nearly killed in the process.

Afterward, her telepathic and telekinetic

abilities are amplified way past 11 and

she complains of feeling as if something

new is living inside her. While she tries to

get back into her normal schedule, she

begins to experience uncontrollable urges

and power surges.

Scared, she runs away believing she is a

danger to herself and others. While on the

lam (she runs afoul of the law when she

blasts a helicopter out of the sky), she runs

into a woman called Vuk (Jessica

Chastain) who shows no fear of her or her

abilities. In fact, she tells Jean she can harness

that power and create new universes

where she can be safe. But when the X-Men

learn Vuk is not who she claims to be (are

they ever?), they race to save Jean before

she destroys the world and her humanity

in the process.

There are many problems with this film,

most stemming from the lackluster writing

and uninspired direction from Kinberg. I

don’t know why he was given another

chance with this arc but he once again

failed to do anything creative or do it justice.

While the plot within is slightly more

coherent than “The Last Stand,” “Dark

Phoenix” is still a boring mess of wasted

potential.

If there is one saving grace for this film,

it is the acting, which is not all that great.

While a vast majority of the older cast have

already checked out (Lawrence, McAvoy,

Michael Fassbender and Nicolas Hoult),

the newest cast (Turner, Tye Sheridan and

Kodi Smit-McPhee) try their best to elevate

the crap given to them. They largely succeed

and make this film vaguely watchable.

With the end of “Dark Phoenix” comes a

new chapter with the X-Men, and by that I

mean Disney has snatched up 20th

Century Fox and Marvel will now have control

of the property.

While I have serious concerns at how

powerful Disney has become in the movie

world, I do think the Marvel Cinematic

Universe will do these characters justice.

Eventually. I hope.

ADVISORY

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

reach Canada. Please
