Recreation Roundup

Messenger photos by Dedra Cordle

On July 5, dozens of guests attended the second annual

Kickoff to Parks and Recreation Month at Gantz Park. The

event, which is hosted by the city of Grove City and its parks

and recreation department, featured the grand opening of its

new, nature-themed playgrounds, tours of the farmhouse, an

hour-long musical performance from the Central Ohio Brass

Band and a hunt for Gnomes. Shown here are a few scenes

captured at the event.

the new attractions at the playground.

Stacey Stevens, (bottom right) a volunteer with the Gardens at

Gantz, shows off a sunbrella. Stevens said not only does it

block UV rays from reaching her, but it also drops the surrounding

temperature by 15 degrees when it is open.

Pushing for

a safe path

By Andrea Cordle

Southwest Editor

Grove City resident and councilman

Ted Berry frequently rides his bicycle to

work in downtown Columbus. The main

problem with that is the bike paths end

when he leaves Grove City limits.

“There is no safe way to get to downtown

Columbus,” said Berry.

Berry said he hears complaints from

other local cyclists as well.

BIKE PATH

Continued from page 1

“There are tons of bikers in the area and

we want an easy and safe way to get downtown,”

he said.

According to Berry, the easiest route out

of Grove City to Columbus is down Gantz

Road, to Hardy Parkway, to Brown Road

then onto Central Point into downtown.

“There is nothing over there,” said Berry

referring to bike paths.

Bicycle riders could also travel down

Harrisburg Pike or State Route 104, but

those routes are not without issue. Berry

said there is too much large truck traffic on

State Route 104 and Harrisburg Pike is

just not safe for riders.

To build safe bike paths into Columbus,

the city would need to work with other

jurisdictions. The routes to get into downtown

Columbus from Grove City go

through the city of Columbus and Franklin

Township.

According to a Columbus Bicentennial

Bikeways plan, the city has proposed more

than 500 new miles of bikeways, some of

which would be cross-jurisdictional with

neighboring suburbs, like Grove City.

“We at the city are open to working with

our neighbors to expand bicycling infrastructure

and connectivity in central Ohio,”

said Michael Liggett, community relations

coordinator with the city of Columbus.

“There are currently no projects in process

for this but as our bikeways system continues

to expand, there is future potential for

projects that are cross-jurisdictional.”

Franklin Township trustee Aryeh Alex

said township officials have not discussed a

bike path running through township roads,

however he said he is open to the idea.

“I am very supportive of the idea and

think that building a bike path would be a

great opportunity for residents to be better

able to commute,” said Alex.

Franklin Township is a smaller municipality

and many of the roads do not even

have sidewalks.

“Most of our township is without sidewalks

and walking on the street is difficult

and dangerous,” said Alex. “Adding a bike

path on a major thorough way like Brown

Road or Harrisburg Pike, would create a

safe place for individuals to bike and walk

in our community.”

Grove City Parks and Recreation

Director Kim Conrad said local bicyclists

can pick up the Camp Chase Trail near

Alkire Road. The Camp Chase Trail would

then take riders through west Columbus

and the Hilltop. Then riders could connect

to the Scioto Greenway Trail that runs

along the Scioto River into downtown

Columbus.

Harrisburg First Responder

and Veterans Celebration

The Central Ohio Military Museum and

local first responders will host a

Harrisburg First responder and Veterans

Celebration from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. July 20

and July 21 at 1010 High St. in the village

around the southwest

www.columbusmessenger.com

Conrad said this is not the most direct

route, but it is a bikeway into Columbus.

The parks and recreation director also

said the city plans to extend the bike path

from Buckeye Parkway through the new

Farmstead subdivision to connect to Scioto

Grove Metro Park though that is years

down the road.

“The main goal for Grove City is to get

the path over to Scioto Grove then extend

it,” said Conrad.

Conrad said riders could then take State

Route 104 into Columbus.

Both Conrad and Berry said they plan to

contact the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning

Commission (MORPC) about the bike

trails.

MORPC established a Central Ohio

Greenways committee in 2015 to develop a

plan for a network of trails easily accessible

to every central Ohioan. Conrad said

Grove City is represented in this committee

and she would bring up the issue of

access from the city to Columbus.

“We are on the radar,” she said. “It’s just

a matter of when it will happen.

Berry said in addition to contacting

MORPC about safe and easy pathways into

Columbus, he also plans to reach out to

Columbus leaders.

Committee, visit www.morpc.org/committees/central-ohio-greenways.

In Education

Board of education OKs contract to keep treasurer

By Dedra Cordle

Staff Writer

Shawnee State honors

• Maegan Neeley of Grove City has been

named to the president’s list for the spring

semester at Shawnee State University.

The South-Western City Schools Board

of Education has reached an agreement to

keep the current district treasurer through

2025.

At the July 8 meeting, the board unanimously

approved a new five-year contract

for Treasurer Hugh Garside, which is slated

to begin Aug. 1, 2020. Under the terms

of the agreement, Garside will receive a

base salary of $170,000 with a 3 percent

increase each year of the contract pending

a satisfactory performance during an annual

evaluation.

The contract also provides Garside with

life insurance, health insurance, vision

insurance, disability insurance, administrator

liability insurance, employees

Medicare and local, state and national professional

dues.

The board has also agreed to pay 90 percent

of the premium for family or single

health insurance.

The board praised Garside for his abilities

to manage bond issue finances and

communicate the district’s financial information

to the community in an easily

understood format.

“Mr. Garside had been extremely helpful

to the board and has attempted to make

the district’s financial information readily

available and as transparent as possible to

the public,” said board president Mindy

Garverick in a written statement. “As a

board, we rely heavily on the treasurer to

keep us informed of any changes in our

financial situation as we continue to look

for cost saving measures and remain

accountable to the community.”

Garside has been with the district for

nearly two decades, serving as treasurer

from 1998 to 2004 and then from 2007 to

present. Garside said at the end of the new

contract, he will have served as the longest

tenured treasurer in the district’s history.

He remarked that has loved being a part

of the district, as well as the greater community.

“The district and the area has expanded

immensely since I first served as treasurer,”

he said. “I am proud that I will be

around to continue to see its growth.”

Under his tenure, the district has seen

multiple reconstruction projects take place.

In his first term, he oversaw the project

that constructed Central Crossing High

School and a new district service center. In

his second term, he oversaw phase one of

the Ohio Facilities Construction

Commission project that featured 13

replacement elementary schools, the renovation

of two elementary schools and a new

Franklin Heights High School. He is currently

overseeing the budget for phase two

of the $160 million OFCC project, which

will replace the oldest middle schools and

provide renovations to Jackson Middle

School and East Franklin Elementary.

“It is my goal for phase two to be on time

and on budget,” he said. “So far, we are two

for two when it comes to being on time and

on budget for our major construction projects

and I hope to see that trend continue

with phase two.”

The board also approved a three-year

2.5 percent salary increase for non-South-

Western Administrators Association members.

Those members include, but are not

limited to, the executive director of communications,

the assistant supervisor of curriculum,

and administrative assistants.

In other news, the board approved the

purchase of additional buses to add to its

fleet. According to the board, they have

ordered seven 84-passenger transit buses,

two 78-passenger conventional buses, three

54-passenger with lift buses and two 48-

passenger with lift buses at a cost of $1.37

million. Each bus comes equipped with

radios, cameras and GPS systems.

Houk plans to begin work for the department

of justice in Cleveland this fall. A

2016 graduate of the University of Notre

Dame, she is the daughter of Allen and

Christine Houk.

Helping older women flourish

The health statistics for older women in this country

are alarming.

a weight bearing exercise, it is great for your bones. It also burns calories, improves your

quality of sleep, aides in the body’s production of Vitamin D and increases your

opportunity to socialize and make new friends. Senior golfing events are plentiful in our

area. Here are two possibilities to consider:

In Entertainment

Spinning the Marvel web

Spider-Man is one of the most popular characters in

both comic books and on the silver screen, yet the second

film in the latest reboot felt like it was operating

at a disadvantage.

While “Far From Home” was always going to make

money for the temporarily married production companies

Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios, it had the

unenviable position of being the first stand-alone

comic book movie to follow the behemoth that was

“Avengers: Endgame.” Not only was “Far From Home”

tasked with picking up the emotional beats left from

that film, it also had to set the stage for the upcoming

phase in the Marvel Cinematic Universe while simultaneously

treading its own course for the solo franchise.

To say that much was placed onto the costume-fitted

shoulders of this film would be putting it lightly

and for the most part it succeeds in doing all of the

above. But with that success of reaching the points set

forth by the production companies came the sacrifice of

cohesion, thus making “Far From Home” an uneven

viewing experience.

The film takes place eight months after the events

of ‘Endgame’ with an un-snapped Peter Parker (Tom

Holland) preparing for a school trip to Europe with

classmates who were also recently brought back to

existence. His itinerary includes having fun with his

friend Ned (Jacob Batalon), purchasing the perfect gift

for his crush MJ (Zendaya), telling said crush that he

has a crush on her, and staying out of the reach of

threats to humanity.

Before the first stop on the two-week tour, however,

he is informed that S.H.I.E.L.D agent Nick Fury

(Samuel L. Jackson) requires his assistance as there

have been suspicious weather-related events occurring

in remote parts of the world. Wanting a break from

superhero hijinks, Peter ignores the call until Venice is

attacked by an apparent water monster.

With the lives of thousands in immediate danger,

Peter does what he does best but finds his abilities are

ill-suited to battling liquid fury. Then, miraculously, a

new hero comes onto the scene and helps quell the

threat. This new hero, Quentin Beck (Jake

Gyllenhaal), tells Peter and Nick Fury that this monster,

one of four ‘Elementals’ capable of destroying

At the

ball game

The Franklin County Office

on Aging Day with the

Columbus Clippers was

held on June 20 in

Huntington Park. Some of

those who attended the

baseball game are pictured

here, from left to right:

Aging; Gary Sams, honoree,

who threw the ceremonial

first pitch; Kenneth Wilson,

player Daniel Johnson.

worlds through manipulating

the elements, was responsible

for the loss of his Earth, which

is a multi-verse of this one. He

says the most dangerous one,

the Fire Elemental, is preparing

to strike soon and he needs

all the help he can get battling

it. With all of the remaining Avengers MIA, it falls on

Peter to lead or assist in this mission when all he

wants to do is literally anything else.

The visuals in the film are quite spectacular, utilizing

the special skill set of Quentin Beck, aka Mysterio,

to great effect. His battles with the Elementals, and

later other unnamed persons, are mind-bendingly trippy

but I couldn’t help but think back to the 2018 animated

film “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” and

feel that it paled in comparison, in a variety of ways.

Though the battles were great and the chemistry

between the cast was spot-on and utterly charming,

there were times that I was really bored watching this

film and times where the plot points were really disjointed.

Though it offers an interesting twist from

2017’s “Homecoming” where all Peter wanted was

more adult responsibilities, it still comes to the same

conclusion so it doesn’t feel all that different from its

predecessor.

While there are some pacing and plotting issues

throughout the films, primarily due to the similar yet

conflicting interests of the two studios, “Far From

Home” is a visual feast filled with moments of sadness

and humor as Peter comes to terms with his responsibilities,

his blossoming romance with the non-damsel

in distress and the cliff-hanger left in the mid-credit

scene. That scene, which can probably be found online

by now, is a terrific way to set up a plot for the next

phase and film. It’s just too bad that thrill wasn’t felt

much throughout the entire movie. Grade: C+

The AEP Ohio Neighbor to

Neighbor Program is now accepting

applications for utility assistance

grants for the 2019 summer cooling

season.

Through a partnership between

AEP Ohio and Dollar Energy Fund,

eligible AEP Ohio customers who

need help during the summer

months can apply for assistance to

maintain or restore their electric

service.

Dollar Energy Fund’s Hardship

Program helps eligible families facing

an immediate utility crisis. The

AEP Ohio Neighbor to Neighbor

Program supports families in need

with a grant applied directly to

their AEP Ohio account to prevent

disconnection of, or restore, their

electric service. Cooling assistance

is available once per program year

on a first-come, first-served basis.

Eligible account holders may

apply through Aug. 31 while funds

are available.

This year marks 10 years since

AEP Ohio and Dollar Energy Fund

launched the Neighbor to Neighbor

Program. The program has provided

more than $13.5 million in assistance

to more than 56,000 customers

during this time.

“We’ve made a commitment to

the communities we serve to be a

good community partner and

neighbor,” said Katie Grayem,

director of customer experience for

AEP Ohio. “Summer heat can contribute

to dangerous conditions,

especially for the elderly and those

with health problems. The Summer

Cooling Program is one of many

ways we help our customers

who may struggle to afford

keeping their homes cool

during the summer.”

To apply, customers may

contact one of the AEP Ohio

Neighbor to Neighbor

www.columbusmessenger.com

Keep cool with Neighbor to Neighbor Program

club meeting

Women’s Civic Club

The Women’s Civic Club of Grove City meets at 7 p.m. the first

Thursday of every month, except January and February, at the

Grove City Library. The philanthropic group begins its evenings

with a speaker, followed by a business meeting and refreshments.

If interested in attending, contact Carol Bonder at 614-558-6138.

Program’s network of more than

120 Ohio community-based organizations.

To qualify, an applicant’s

total gross household income must

be at or below 200 percent of the

Federal Poverty Income

Guidelines.

For example, a family of four

earning up to $51,500 per year is

income-eligible for the program.

Households must have made payments

to AEP Ohio totaling at least

$75 in the last 90 days and owe a

minimum of $50 on their AEP Ohio

bill. Full eligibility guidelines and

application instructions can be

found at AEPOhio.com/helpaneighbor.
