Giving new life to an old friend

By Theresa Hennis

Staff Writer

“The tree which moves some to tears of

joy is in the eyes of others only a green

thing that stands in the way. Some see

nature all ridicule and deformity... and

some scarce see nature at all. But to the

eyes of the man of imagination, nature is

imagination itself.” —William Blake

Where others saw only a dead tree on

his property, Harry “Corky” Bivens imagined

renewed life for it.

“My boy told me we needed to rent a

saw and cut it down, and I said leave it

go–I’m gonna make a new tree,” the

Mount Sterling man said.

While on vacation in Michigan with a

buddy, Bivens saw an artistic design

made out of metal on the front of a barn.

“I came home and said, ‘That’s it. I’m

gonna do that,’” he said.

With the seed of the barn art idea

planted, the tree started taking shape.

Bivens is used to working with his

hands and staying busy. He was employed

at General Motors for 28 years

working with sheet metal and 21 years at

Advanced Drainage Systems.

“I’ve made everything from cars to

houses. I’ve done everything in the

world,” said the retiree.

To bring new life to his old tree, Bivens

cut free-form flowers out of a vinyl-like

roofing material. Five pop-rivets hold

each flower to a circular backing with

bells at the center. Altogether, 2,000 bells

adorn the flowers. They hang on coat

hangers which mimic stems. The

design also includes circular,

hand-painted, wooden flowers.

Rebar is driven into the tree’s

bark to hold ¼-inch steel rods

bent into four quarter panels with

braces that support the “canopy of

flower-leaves” and clips that hold

the panels together. The project

took three months to complete.

Bivens was inspired recently to

add one more touch to his tree.

“I was standing outside and

saw the religious statue that belonged

to my mother on the

ground up against one of our

other trees,” he said. “We bought

it 50 years ago, and I decided to

carve a place into the tree and put

it there.”

Betty Passwaters, a neighbor

who passes Bivens’s home on her

daily walk, admires the tree and

suggested the addition of lights.

“I joked with her and told her,

‘Betty, just keep on walking!’”

Bivens said.

But the suggestion sparked his

creativity.

“The flowers would hold lights,

but I just have to figure out how I

want to do it,” he said.

On another section of Bivens’s

property stands a water wheel he

made to which he attached 29

flowers leftover from the tree project.

He said his grandchildren

would like to see him make something

else special to put there,

and he’s looking for ideas.

Questions raised about city council procedures

By Andrew Garrett

Staff Writer

London city council adopted nine ordinances

and resolutions at its regular meeting

on June 20. Of these, all but one was

passed with an “emergency” clause or suspension

of the three-reading rule municipal

councils customarily use when introducing

and passing new legislation.

This hastening of the legislative process,

while often necessary due to time constraints

(for example, moving money from

one budgetary line to another to pay the

city’s bills on time), has led some city residents

to question its frequency and call out

a council member on social media.

Council member Rex Castle said he was

titled “King of the Emergencies” earlier in

the week by members of a London-themed

Facebook group. Castle explained that as

head of the city’s finance committee, he

often is tasked with sponsoring proposed

legislation and sometimes with the emergency

clause because time is of the essence.

“We have to use a little common sense

here and not put the cart before the horse,”

he said.

None of the council members who voted

to suspend the three-reading rule felt it was

an abuse of power. Most said they see it as

a tool to expedite the necessary work of the

city, such as the resolution they passed to finance

storm sewer repairs and construct a

storm water vault to prevent flooding, using

money from the city’s storm water utility

fund.

Speaking to the utility of invoking the

emergency clause in this instance—at a location

where the city is already doing work

and has the equipment at the ready—Castle

said, “It's going to cost you more money to

bring the equipment back out there. What

we are trying to do is save the city money by

using an emergency.”

The one piece of legislation that did get

three readings came with its own amount of

controversy.

An ordinance establishing the boundaries

of a Community Reinvestment Area

(CRA) was up for a second reading and vote

as an emergency at the June 6 meeting but

stalled when council member Henry Comer

presented a series of printouts taken from

the Internet discussing the possible pitfalls

of the Community Reinvestment Act, a different

program also known as a CRA.

David Kell, executive director of the Madison

County Chamber Commerce and the

Madison County Future, attended the June

20 council meeting to explain the difference

between a Community Reinvestment Area

and the Community Reinvestment Act.

According to Kell and a state-sponsored

website he cited, “The Ohio Community

Reinvestment Area program is an economic

development tool administered by municipal

and county government that provides

real property tax exemptions for property

owners who renovate existing or construct

new buildings. Community Reinvestment

Areas are areas of land in which property

owners can receive tax incentives for investing

in real property improvements.”

Essentially, the city will be designating

different areas to administer tax incentives

to business owners or developers. Kell mentioned

a number of municipalities throughout

the state that are successfully taking

advantage of the program.

Kell also mentioned that the need for

housing was great within the city and would

only become greater in the future.

The city will have complete local control

over the program, and individual agreements

within the Community Reinvestment

Area can be terminated or altered as necessary,

Kell said.

This is the program outlined in the legislation

that was before council.

What Comer argued against at the June

6 meeting was the Community Reinvestment

Act, Kell said. The Community Reinvestment

Act is a law intended to encourage depository

institutions to help meet the credit

needs of the communities in which they operate,

including low- and moderate-income

neighborhoods—a completely different program

than the Community Reinvestment

Area.

Once the difference was pointed out,

Comer said he had not been fully educated

in the matter because it had been presented

to him on short notice.

Mayor Patrick Closser challenged that

notion, saying council members are responsible

for doing their research prior to coming

to meetings, adding that agendas with new

legislation are posted to the city's website

and made available days in advance of council

meetings.

Council member Anthony Smith expressed

his dissatisfaction with the situation

when he said, “I think it’s sad that it

(the CRA legislation) really got held up for

two more weeks because an individual researched

a completely different program.”

Good Samaritans watching out for your health

Grant covers glucose and

blood pressure checks at

West Jeff food pantry

By Theresa Hennis

Staff Writer

The saying, “Charity begins at

home,” resonates with Ada Cochran of

West Jefferson. Because of her 25

years of nurse tech experience with

Ohio Health, she was instrumental in

helping her husband, who had Type 1

brittle diabetes, maintain a quality of

life that he might not have had without

her care.

Cochran continues to put her

health care skills to use by volunteering

to make a difference in the lives of

clients at the Good Samaritan Food

Pantry of West Jefferson, which operates

out of the basement of West Jefferson

United Methodist Church, 36

S. Center St.

The United Way of Clark, Champaign

and Madison Counties issued a

$4,000 grant to the pantry this year to

provide glucose testing and blood

pressure monitoring for pantry

clients.

Cochran, who performs the testing and monitoring, said, “The

purpose of the grant is to help people who don’t have insurance or

can’t afford health care to go to the doctor.”

Virginia Miller of West Jefferson has been a volunteer and treasurer

at the pantry for 25 years, and she can’t say enough about

Cochran’s diligence in serving the clients and the volunteers.

“Ada has helped many of our clients who didn’t even realize they

had health issues,” Miller said. “She even makes sure I get my blood

pressure and glucose testing done regularly.”

Cochran also hands out helpful literature on diabetes and blood

pressure from Ohio Health.

The United Way grant has already proved its worth for clients

who might otherwise have reached a health crisis point without the

timely intervention of the testing.

“People come in, and I often catch that they have high blood

pressure,” Cochran said. “I call the emergency squad for them if

they want me to.”

Cochran keeps a confidential log of the clients’ blood pressure

and glucose results, and the clients receive a copy, as well.

Money from the grant also helps to provide Glucerna for clients

who have diabetes and nutritious food for the young, elderly, and

others in need.

The Happy Druggist Pharmacy of West Jefferson donates cards

to the pantry to give to clients to use for free diabetic lancets, test

strips, and glucose monitors at the pharmacy.

Pantry hours of operation are 2-3 p.m. Wednesdays and 10-11

Goal: To collect 300 books

A book is a gift you can open again and again.”

Residents, teachers and friends Stephanie Huddleston

and Kelly Armfelt are working to ensure that area

children in need receive the gift of a new book this summer.

“I was laying in bed one night and the idea to combine

new books with the summer lunch program just

popped into my head,” Huddleston said.

Huddleston is a volunteer and supporter of the Sufficient

Grace outreach program, which provides nonperishable

food items to school-age children in area

public schools.

A chance meeting and quick sidewalk conversation

with Huddleston at the London Public Library inspired

Armfelt, a summer lunch program and H.E.L.P. House

volunteer, to get involved.

Both women are passionate about the power of putting

new books into the hands of children who typically don’t

have access to new books or the option of choosing “just

right” books for themselves.

With the support of area churches, businesses and

service organizations, Huddleston and Armfelt have set

a goal of collecting 300 new books.

Book collection sites include London Public Library,

Cappy’s Pizza, Phat Daddy’s, Madison County Vineyard,

London Church of the Nazarene, St. Patrick

Church, First Presbyterian Church of London, and

Madison County Department of Job and Family Services.

Additional collection sites will be added.

New chapter and picture books for children in grades 1-

3 (ages 6-10) will be collected at these sites until July

19.

Volunteers will distribute the

books to children attending the

Andy Morse, owner of Cappy’s Pizza in London, and

resident Kelly Armfelt promote a children’s book collection

that aims to put 300 books in the hands of local

children ages 6-10. New books can be dropped off at

Cappy’s and several other locations around London.

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
