City OKs<br />

trash switch<br />

By Andrew Garrett<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Soon, London residents will no longer<br />

have to buy the official London trash bags<br />

or deal with refuse that escapes from open<br />

recycling bins.<br />

Council voted 5-1 on <strong>June</strong> 6 to adopt<br />

amended legislation that will replace the<br />

bag and bin system with large, roll-away<br />

trash cans. The cans will come with lids that<br />

should prevent garbage from blowing all<br />

over the city, a blight that at least one council<br />

member and one resident mentioned at<br />

the <strong>June</strong> 6 council meeting.<br />

The switch comes at a price. Current residents<br />

must pay $7.20 per month for one<br />

year to finance the cans, in addition to<br />

$17.80 per month (up from $7.80) for trash<br />

pick-up service. Residents who move into<br />

the city after the new rates take effect will<br />

have to pay for the cans up front.<br />

The city had initially envisioned issuing<br />

one 96-gallon trash can and one 64-gallon recycling<br />

can per residence. After pushback<br />

from some residents about the can sizes, they<br />

decided to offer a 35-gallon option, as well.<br />

The cost will remain the same no matter<br />

what size a resident orders. Because the city<br />

intends to continue its recycling program, residents<br />

must buy two cans, one for trash and<br />

one for recyclables. These can be any combination<br />

of sizes offered, except two 96-gallon<br />

cans. Additional cans may be purchased for<br />

$4.45 per can per month for one year.<br />

Assistance service, formerly called backdoor<br />

pick-up service, will be available for an<br />

additional $2.20 per month. Council decided<br />

to waive this fee for seniors 65 years and<br />

older and qualifying people with disabilities.<br />

Applications for the fee waiver are available<br />

at the Board of Public Utilities. Applicants<br />

must provide a photo ID and a copy of registration<br />

for a handicap parking placard or verification<br />

that they receive disability benefits.<br />

Trash cans will be imprinted with serial<br />

numbers and come with warranties in excess<br />

of 10 years.<br />

Exactly how residents will notify the city<br />

of their choice in size of cans has yet to be<br />

determined. Options discussed included<br />

mailers, forms printed in the newspaper,<br />

and space on water/sanitation bills.<br />

Council member Rex Castle, who cast the<br />

single dissenting vote (Brenda Russell was<br />

absent), said he wanted to see more evidence<br />

of “due diligence” in the legislation.<br />

His main issue was with the increase of the<br />

In addition to walking around a path set<br />

up in the school parking lot, participants<br />

enjoyed contests, entertainment and onsite<br />

fundraisers. The evening also included<br />

a dinner for cancer survivors and their<br />

Relay participants take to the “track,” a loop set up in the high school parking lot. (The<br />

actual track was unavailable as Jonathan Alder is installing synthetic turf on its stadium<br />

field.) The first lap is always dedicated to survivors and caregivers.<br />

board president, after the board approved<br />

the pair of collective bargaining agreements<br />

on <strong>June</strong> 10.<br />

The agreement with Ohio Association of<br />

Public School Employees (OAPSE) Local<br />

684 carries forward all provisions of their<br />

2018-19 agreement, plus the addition of a<br />

1.33 percent across-the-board salary increase<br />

for each classification.<br />

Teachers in the West Jefferson Education<br />

Association also carried forward contract provisions<br />

from 2018-19, plus a 1.33 percent increase<br />

to the base salary. The parties agreed<br />

that vertical step and horizontal column<br />

movement will occur with normal practice.<br />

In regard to professional development, a<br />

committee consisting of one administrator<br />

and one teacher representing each building<br />

will be established to plan professional development<br />

in-service programs intended for<br />

use on work days.<br />

For all required professional development<br />

in-service hours scheduled, certified<br />

staff will be provided with an equivalent<br />

amount of work hours to perform tasks such<br />

as lesson planning, grading, creating classroom<br />

materials, organization, and parent<br />

and guardian communications.<br />

High school Envirothon and Mock Trial<br />

positions were added to the extra duty<br />

salary schedule.<br />

The agreement was signed by the teachers’<br />

union representative on May 30 and is<br />

effective July 1, <strong>2019</strong>, through <strong>June</strong> 30, 2020.<br />

In other action, the board approved an<br />

agreement to sell the Garrette Park/Frey<br />

property to the village for $195,000 payable<br />

over two years.<br />

“I thank the village and the board for getting<br />

this done,” said Superintendent William Mullett. “It’s something<br />

that’s been talked about for decades. I think it’s a better fit<br />

for the village.”<br />

The agreement does not include a football field that belongs to<br />

the West Jefferson Community Association. Before the Garrette<br />

parcel became a park, the land was owned by the Garrette family<br />

and used as a playground for the Frey school building. The family<br />

donated the land to the school district.<br />

The board also approved a CRA/TIF (Community Reinvestment<br />

Area/Tax Increment Financing) agreement with Duke Realty for<br />

the Looby estate property in the Park 70 development area. Art<br />

Makris, vice president of leasing and development at Duke Realty,<br />

said the company previously extended the park, but since it is almost<br />

developed, there is need for more land. Duke entered into a<br />

contract with the Looby estate to purchase 375 acres across the<br />

street from Park 70.<br />

When board member Dr. Meg Hiss asked why the area is attractive<br />

to developers, Makris pointed to its proximity to the I-70 corridor.<br />

“Columbus, as a region, has been very good,” Makris said, adding<br />

that as more e-commerce emerges, the need for large e-commerce<br />

buildings grows.<br />

monthly sanitation fee.<br />

“We need to have financial backup to show us what we’re voting<br />

on,” he said. “We’re blindly voting for a rate increase.”<br />

According to council member Anthony Smith, the city has not<br />

raised trash rates since 2005. He asked council and the audience to<br />

name any business that hasn’t raised its rates since that year. He<br />

noted that in 2018, the sanitation department was $150,000 in the<br />

negative.<br />

Council member Henry Comer asked why the rate increase was<br />

not being put on the ballot for the people to decide.<br />

Steve Scaggs and Stan Kavy, members of the Board of Public<br />

Utilities, did not see a vote as being a good option, as it could only<br />

mean privatization of the department, resulting in the loss of local<br />

jobs, less services provided, and a rate increase no matter what.<br />

“So, your vote would be, do you want to pay a lot more (with privatizing)<br />

or do you want to have an increase (in rates dictated by<br />

the city) and still be lower?” Smith asked.<br />

A date has not been set for when the new system will roll out or<br />

when the new fees will go into effect. Scaggs said the timeline likely<br />

will be discussed at the next Board of Public Utilities meeting set<br />

for 6:30 p.m. <strong>June</strong> 27 at city hall.<br />

High hopes for decoy innovation<br />

NOTICE TO<br />

PROPERTY TAXPAYERS<br />

By Dedra Cordle<br />

Staff Writer<br />

It was nearing the end of a long and cold<br />

hunt and all Jacob Clark wanted to do was<br />

go home, eat and take a hot shower. Before<br />

he could enjoy such pleasures, though, he<br />

had to tend to his more than four dozen decoys<br />

bobbing in the water.<br />

The London native is no novice to this<br />

time consuming task. He has been hunting<br />

waterfowl on the lakes in Madison and<br />

Clark counties since childhood. But as he<br />

began to hand-wind his decoys, the lines got<br />

tangled and he discovered that most were<br />

caked in muck and needed to be cleaned.<br />

Knowing he would be at this for hours, the<br />

normally mild mannered Clark was overcome<br />

with irritation.<br />

“I was cussing up a storm out there,” he<br />

said with a laugh.<br />

As he stood in the water, trying to get it<br />

over with as quickly as possible, he began to<br />

imagine a product that would, in essence,<br />

get it over with even more quickly.<br />

“I came up with a retractable weight system<br />

that could be attached to any decoy,”<br />

said the 2013 London High School graduate.<br />

Feeling as if it had the potential to be a<br />

viable product on the market, Clark, 24, a<br />

senior this year at Bowling Green State<br />

University, used it for a business course assignment.<br />

His professor encouraged him to<br />

submit his idea to The Hatch.<br />

The Hatch is a competition similar to the<br />

popular television show, “Shark Tank.” Students<br />

present business ideas to alumni investors<br />

in front of a live audience, said Kirk<br />

Kern, director of the Paul. J Hooker Center<br />

for Entrepreneurial Leadership in the College<br />

of Business.<br />

“What makes our program so unique,” he<br />

explained, “is our alumni investors make<br />

equity investments to a select number of our<br />

students to help them on their way to building<br />

a business or building upon their idea.”<br />

Kern said that to date, more than<br />

$500,000 has been committed to student<br />

startups through The Hatch.<br />

Upon the advisement of his professor,<br />

Clark submitted his idea to the program. He<br />

was under no impression that he would be<br />

selected.<br />

“I actually forgot I submitted it,” he admitted.<br />

But the committee members who select<br />

the ideas for The Hatch did not forget about<br />

him.<br />

“We receive hundreds of applications and<br />

unfortunately only eight applicants are selected<br />

to present their idea in front of our<br />

alumni investors,” Kern said. “Our committees<br />

have to do a lot of whittling down<br />

throughout this process, and Jacob’s idea<br />

was in the top 15 on everyone’s list.”<br />

After weeks of debate, the committee<br />

made their selection and then informed the<br />

students via email of their decision.<br />

“I was surprised, but I thought it was really<br />

cool to be selected,” Clark said.<br />

With the help of alumni mentor Gary<br />

Dible, the tourism, leisure and event plan-<br />

Jacob Clark of London presents his idea for a retractable decoy weight to alumni investors<br />

at Bowling Green State University’s The Hatch program.<br />

ning major got to work designing the product,<br />

doing market analysis and preparing<br />

for the presentation, which took place in<br />

April.<br />

“I was really nervous to be up there,” he<br />

said. “I had confidence in my product and<br />

research, but I am not a public speaker.”<br />

For four minutes, Clark, wearing chest<br />

waders, pitched DecoyL, the retractable<br />

weight system that can attach to any duck<br />

decoy, to six alumni investors. He spoke of<br />

how time-consuming it is to wind up decoys,<br />

how the lines get mucked up and tangled,<br />

how having an efficient mechanism would<br />

cut the time in half, and how untapped the<br />

market is.<br />

He requested $5,000 for 5 percent company<br />

share and, once again, expected nothing<br />

to come from it.<br />

“In the back of my head, I was hoping<br />

someone might help me out,” Clark said.<br />

They did.<br />

Each of the six investors expressed interest<br />

in DecoyL, but it was Mark C. West,<br />

CEO of SharedClarity, who snatched up the<br />

product.<br />

“The terms of the deal were, on top of the<br />

$5,000 for 5 percent of the company, for<br />

each thousand dollars invested he would receive<br />

a 1 percent share at a cap of 25 percent,”<br />

Clark explained.<br />

He said he was in disbelief that his idea<br />

found investment at The Hatch and is still<br />

in shock at the events that have transpired<br />

since. Those events include patent applications,<br />

business meetings, and engagements<br />

with industry leaders who have expressed<br />

interest in DecoyL.<br />

“It just keeps moving forward,” he said.<br />

Not every step has been smooth, Clark<br />

added.<br />

“There have been some design challenges,<br />

but that is to be expected when<br />

you’re dealing with something that is in the<br />

elements.”<br />

He said he looks forward to the future<br />

and seeing what may come of DecoyL.<br />

“I’m excited to see if it can make it on the<br />

market,” he said. “I think it can, and I believe<br />

it will be a huge help to waterfowl<br />

hunters.”<br />

Gobbling up agriculture at Breakfast on the Farm<br />

By Theresa Hennis<br />

Staff Writer<br />

When we sit down to eat, it doesn’t<br />

always occur to us the amount of work<br />

it takes to get that food from the farm<br />

to our table.<br />

On <strong>June</strong> 8, Franklin and Madison<br />

County Farm Bureaus presented the<br />

8th Annual Breakfast on the Farm at<br />

Becks Hybrids in London to educate<br />

the public about farming and agriculture.<br />

Approximately 1,750 people registered<br />

for the free event hosted by<br />

Becks, Red Brick Tavern and Ag Pro.<br />

Guests enjoyed a free breakfast of<br />

made-to-order omelets, sausage, biscuits<br />

and beverages, as well as guided<br />

field tours, educational vendors, craft<br />

activities, the latest in farm equipment,<br />

and interaction with farm animals.<br />

John Linse of Hilliard and his<br />

daughter, Katie, 8, have attended the<br />

event each of the last five years.<br />

“Exposure to the farm life is an important<br />

learning experience for children.<br />

I grew up on my grandparents’<br />

farm,” John said.<br />

Farming has gone through many<br />

changes over the years, from how crops<br />

are planted to the high-tech equipment<br />

used to plant them.<br />

Larry Sims of Kingston enjoyed seeing<br />

the latest in farm tractors.<br />

“Some of these tractors cost half a<br />

million dollars. They aren’t like the<br />

tractors I farmed with all my life in<br />

Ross County,” he said.<br />

Kayle Mast, a Madison County<br />

Farm Bureau volunteer and London<br />

resident, represented the Wilmington<br />

College Agronomy Club at the Edible<br />

Layers of Soil booth where she taught<br />

children about the importance of<br />

healthy soil for planting. The children<br />

layered dark and light cereals in clear<br />

cups to represent soil profiles, and they<br />

got to eat their finished creations.<br />

“We feel it’s important to give back<br />

to our youth by teaching and advocating<br />

about agriculture,” Mast said.<br />

While agriculture was the big topic<br />

of the day, the impact that family gardening<br />

has on the future of healthy<br />

eating also was emphasized. Lisa Hobson<br />

of Columbus manned the Highland<br />

Youth Garden booth, where children<br />

made newspaper planters to take<br />

home with seed packets to grow their<br />

own plants.<br />

“We educate children and their families<br />

about growing good, healthy food,”<br />

Hobson said.<br />

Sabin will lead grand parade<br />

Former Madison County Sheriff Jim Sabin will<br />

serve as grand marshal of the London Strawberry Festival<br />

parade, set for 5 p.m. <strong>June</strong> 22. The festival runs<br />

<strong>June</strong> 20-22 in downtown London.<br />

Sabin retired in March after 37 years with the<br />

Sheriff’s Office, the last 14 as sheriff. He started his<br />

career in law enforcement as an auxiliary police officer<br />

in West Jefferson before becoming a dispatcher/jailor<br />

at the Sheriff’s Office. From there, he moved on to patrol<br />

duty then spent 19 years with the detective bureau,<br />

working his way through the ranks of sergeant,<br />

lieutenant and chief deputy. He was elected as sheriff<br />

in 2005.<br />

Since retiring, Sabin has spent time camping and<br />

working with his horses, among other activities. His<br />

love of the outdoors and spending time with family are<br />

among the reasons he chose to retire as the weather<br />

was breaking.<br />

Sabin and his wife, Tina, have two sons, Austin and<br />

Craig, and are now enjoying their four grandchildren.<br />

Sabin said he is grateful to the people of Madison<br />

County for all they did for him while he was with the<br />

Sheriff’s Office. He added that he is honored and humbled<br />

by his selection as the Strawberry Festival parade<br />

grand marshal.<br />

London Strawberry Festival<br />

Loving every minute of her year as festival queen<br />

To be a queen doesn't mean you have to<br />

be the prettiest or wear a crown or own the<br />

most glamorous dress. You just have to believe<br />

you're a queen and you are a queen!<br />

For starters, I am Constance Baker, your<br />

2018 London Strawberry Festival Queen. I<br />

have amazing memories from so many different<br />

festivals and organizations this past<br />

year that will always stick in my mind, but<br />

none of this could have happened if it wasn’t<br />

for the night of the crowning.<br />

The Wednesday before the pageant, I<br />

was a bouncing ball of jitters, trying three<br />

variations of my interview outfit. I asked my<br />

mother and father their<br />

opinions, but neither<br />

would give me an answer.<br />

Finally, I decided<br />

on my first choice. I<br />

gave my furry brother,<br />

Thomas, a hug for good<br />

luck, and I was off to<br />

the races. I stayed a bit<br />

back in the chairs as I<br />

waited for my number<br />

to be called. Being one<br />

of the first people there,<br />

I got to see all the other<br />

nervous girls come in.<br />

Since I had done this<br />

three times already, I<br />

knew what to expect but it didn’t stop my<br />

nerves from acting up. I talked with my<br />

mother as I tried to distract myself from the<br />

upcoming judging. When I saw that one of<br />

the young ladies was so nervous and worried,<br />

I walked over to her and started talking<br />

to her about random things. After I gave<br />

her a little pep talk, it was my turn for the<br />

interview. Afterwards, I went over to her,<br />

gave her a hug and wished her luck for the<br />

following day.<br />

I may have participated in this pageant<br />

for four years now, but Thursday is always<br />

the night that stirs up the most butterflies.<br />

I started up the stairs to the stage, hoping<br />

every step of the way I won’t trip. Once I<br />

was on stage, doing my turns and answering<br />

my fishbowl questions, everything hit<br />

me hard and fast. I was in this again. I’m<br />

not a typical pageant girl. I’m soft-spoken,<br />

shy, a typical tomboy. You can almost always<br />

catch me wearing a Marvel T-shirt<br />

and jeans.<br />

After the parade on Saturday, it was<br />

time to crown the queen. Sage and I waited.<br />

I don’t think I have ever felt so nervous.<br />

Standing on stage, my stomach in knots, I<br />

heard a long silence. Then they announced<br />

the attendant and queen. We were both in<br />

shock. As we were crowned, we had our first<br />

hug as “Partners in Crown.”<br />

Starting off the year with my court of little<br />

berries in tow, we went to our first luncheon<br />

as 2018 royalty. Throughout my reign,<br />

Representing the London<br />

Strawberry Festival has given<br />

me an amazing outlook on what<br />

it means to be queen. It’s not<br />

about having a crown or sash;<br />

it’s about being the best version<br />

of me. Show other young girls<br />

and boys that no matter who you<br />

are, what you look like, or what<br />

you like, you can do whatever<br />

you set your mind to.<br />

–Constance Baker,<br />

2018 Strawberry Festival queen<br />

I took goofy photos with close friends from<br />

previous years and met new friends. If you<br />

know me without my crown, you know I can<br />

be a geeky, nervous person. This opportunity<br />

has helped me in amazing ways. This<br />

program has given me a voice. It has allowed<br />

me to overcome my fear of speaking<br />

in front of crowds and a chance to speak on<br />

the spot without preparation.<br />

Being an only child, I’ve never had the<br />

chance to look out for a sibling or experience<br />

sibling rivalry, but this year, I have a whole<br />

strawberry patch full of younger sisters to<br />

cherish and annoy. These ladies have given<br />

me a year full of great<br />

memories, Dabbing on<br />

the float with my attendant<br />

Sage. Making buttons<br />

with Little Miss<br />

attendant Cayla and<br />

Junior Miss second attendant<br />

Maddie. Dancing<br />

at the fall car show<br />

with Junior Miss first<br />

attendant Abby. Walking<br />

around the bowling<br />

alley with Junior Miss<br />

Morgan with our hair<br />

braided together. Making<br />

funny faces in every<br />

photo with Young Miss<br />

Shaylyn. Looking for candy after every parade<br />

with Young Miss Attendant Maria.<br />

Doing cheers on top of a sunroof while riding<br />

in the parade with Little Miss Isabella.<br />

Shortcake Sofia would do her hair like mine<br />

and always be by my side. She was like my<br />

mini me. I can now say that I have sisters,<br />

the best sisters an only child could have.<br />

When riding in parades, I loved the<br />

smiles of the little girls and boys who would<br />

turn to their parents and yell, “Look,<br />

Mommy. It’ss a princess!” Or when people<br />

in the crowd would “bow to the queen.” I<br />

loved interacting with the crowd, making<br />

sure I waved and smiled to everyone.<br />

Some of my favorite festivals I have traveled<br />

to this year are the Moonshine Festival,<br />

Greene Countrie Towne Festival and Wild<br />

Turkey Festival. I have met quite a few<br />

queens and attendants at these festivals<br />

and others. I will always cherish these<br />

friendships and hope to stay in touch.<br />

I want to give a special thanks to my<br />

mother who has helped me in almost every<br />

aspect of this journey by doing my hair,<br />

even trying new styles, no matter how they<br />

turned out. Using countless bottles of hair<br />

spray to try to keep my evil hair up. Going<br />

through tons of bobby pins to hold the crown<br />

down. Always trying to cheer me up when I<br />

didn’t feel my best in my dresses. Drawing<br />

strawberries on the car. And waking me up<br />

super early, even though I’m not the happiest<br />

person in the morning. I want to thank<br />

Constance Baker<br />

my father who had to wake up at the<br />

strangest hours to chauffeur me to the different<br />

festivals. He was never afraid to tell<br />

me when my crown or sash was crooked. He<br />

even bought me more dresses and shoes<br />

when my mother wasn't looking. Holly,<br />

thank you for being patient with all my<br />

wacky ideas for this year and putting up<br />

with my weirdness. Kevin, you always managed<br />

to make the girls and I laugh. There<br />

were definitely days where we needed it.<br />

Representing the London Strawberry<br />

Festival has given me an amazing outlook<br />

on what it means to be queen. It’s not about<br />
