Burchett of London<br />

keeps her eye on the<br />

judge as she works<br />

her way through the<br />

Grand Showman of<br />

Showmen contest. The<br />

London resident<br />

ended up winning the<br />

coveted title (BELOW).<br />

Top showman: Experience pays off<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> Editor<br />

For Macy Burchett, the third time was<br />

the charm.<br />

The 17-year-old London resident has<br />

been showing animals at the <strong>Madison</strong><br />

County Fair since she was 9. Three times,<br />

she has qualified for the pinnacle in livestock<br />

showmanship, the Grand Showman<br />

of Showmen event—in 2014, 2016 and<br />

again this year. On <strong>July</strong> 12, she walked out<br />

of the ring the winner.<br />

“The first year, I was so young, I was so<br />

confused. After being there multiple times,<br />

though, you feel more confident,” said<br />

Burchett, who will be a senior at <strong>Madison</strong>-<br />

Plains High School this fall.<br />

The Grand Showman of Showmen<br />

event brings together the top Junior Fair<br />

showmen in swine, sheep, dairy, goat, beef,<br />

equine, rabbit and poultry. The contestants<br />

show not only the specie by which<br />

they qualified but all of the others, too.<br />

As she did in her two previous trips to<br />

the big show, Burchett qualified again this<br />

year with beef. While beef is her focus—she<br />

also participates in the Ohio Cattlemen’s<br />

Association’s Best show circuit every winter—she<br />

has experience with many of the<br />

other species.<br />

“I showed some poultry when I was really<br />

young, I took a goat one year, this is<br />

my first year with a pig, and I’ve taken<br />

lambs the last two years,” Burchett said.<br />

To get up to speed on dairy, equine and<br />

rabbits for the Grand Showman contest,<br />

she studied friends’ project books and got<br />

help from the other Grand Showman contestants.<br />

“Everybody was great about helping<br />

each other,” she said.<br />

The work Burchett put into preparing<br />

for the species with which she was less familiar<br />

helped to reduce stress, she said,<br />

though she remained apprehensive about<br />

the horse category.<br />

“Equine was definitely the hardest for<br />

me. I just tried to stay calm through it all,”<br />

she said.<br />

Her words of advice for future Grand<br />

Showman of Showmen contestants: “Don’t<br />

be afraid to ask for help, no question is<br />

dumb, and if you are unsure about an animal,<br />

work with it more than once.”<br />

Burchett is the daughter of Becky and<br />

Dave Burchett. Her sister, Amy, shows<br />

goats. Burchett grew up in the Eager<br />

Achievers 4-H Club and has been a member<br />

of the <strong>Madison</strong>-Plains FFA since she<br />

was a freshman.<br />

About her years of experience in 4-H,<br />

FFA and the Best show circuit, Burchett<br />

said, “I really like spending time with the<br />

animals and building teamwork with<br />

them...and I really like spending time with<br />

family and friends and meeting new people.<br />

Without 4-H and FFA, I would never<br />

be able to meet some of these people.”<br />

In addition to the Grand Showman of<br />

Showmen title, Burchett’s <strong>2019</strong> fair<br />

achievements included: beef showman of<br />

Mount Sterling<br />

Another new<br />

leader takes<br />

the helm<br />

By Andrew Garrett<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Mount Sterling village council approved<br />

the hiring of Brian Arledge as village administrator<br />

during a special meeting on<br />

<strong>July</strong> 12. Arledge replaces Brandon Fetzer<br />

who held the position for two-and-a-half<br />

months before submitting his resignation.<br />

The measure passed on emergency with<br />

a unanimous vote. Council member Lowell<br />

Anderson was absent due to health reasons.<br />

Arledge graduated from <strong>Madison</strong>-Plains<br />

High School in 1984 and has spent the majority<br />

of his life in the Mount Sterling area.<br />

He has worked on and off for the village in<br />

different capacities for years, most recently<br />

as part-time wastewater plant operator. He<br />

holds a Class III wastewater certification<br />

and a Class II water certification, one class<br />

above what is necessary to operate the village’s<br />

water and wastewater plants as required<br />

by the Ohio Environmental<br />

Protection Agency.<br />

Arledge is employed full-time as Fayette<br />

County’s wastewater plant superintendent.<br />

He has also worked in wastewater with the<br />

city of Columbus and was plants manager<br />

for Greene County, where he supervised 20<br />

employees over four plants.<br />

He lives with his wife, Kelly, and their<br />

two dogs.<br />

“I hope to do the very best for my home<br />

of Mount Sterling,” he said.<br />

Arledge’s first day as village administrator<br />

is Aug. 5.<br />

Council also heard the first reading of an<br />

ordinance that, if adopted, would increase<br />

the pay and benefits of council members and<br />

the mayor starting Jan. 1, 2020.<br />

Currently, council members receive $100<br />

per month in compensation for their service.<br />

They receive the same amount regardless if<br />

they attend two regular council meetings or<br />

It’s ‘80s all the way in ‘e Wedding Singer’<br />

By Theresa Hennis<br />

Staff Writer<br />

The <strong>Madison</strong> County Arts Council<br />

(MCAC) will present “The Wedding Singer”<br />

<strong>July</strong> 26-28 in the Joyce Hilderbrand Auditorium<br />

at London High School.<br />

If you love 1980s movies and the music<br />

26 E. High St., London, OH<br />

(740) 845-0745<br />

127 E. Main St., W. Jefferson, OH<br />

(614) 379-5407<br />

of that era, you won’t want to miss this musical<br />

production.<br />

“MCAC approached me to do the show,<br />

and I was very excited to bring it to life, as<br />

it’s one I’d had my eye on for a while,” said<br />

Josh Compston, director. “I grew up in the<br />

‘80s and always related with the time period,<br />

and being a fan of the Adam Sandler<br />

movie that the musical was based on, I<br />

knew my sense of humor well matched the<br />

intended humor in the show.”<br />

The musical revolves around Robbie<br />

Hart, a wedding singer upset over a failed<br />

relationship with his former fiancée, and his<br />

romance with new love, Julia Sullivan.<br />

Buried beneath the teased hair and neon is<br />

a beautiful love story that focuses on the<br />

idea that money can’t buy happiness.<br />

Most of the songs are originals written<br />

for the musical. Notable among them are<br />

“It’s Your Wedding Day” and “Saturday<br />

Night in the City.” The show also features<br />

songs from the movie, including “Somebody<br />

Kill Me” and “Grow Old with You.”<br />

Ryan McCarty plays Robbie. Nathan<br />

Haley and Jeremy Moeller play Robbie’s<br />

bandmates, George and Sammy, respectively.<br />

Ciera Bierbaugh holds the role of Linda, Robbie’s<br />

ex-fiancée. Ruth Peart plays Julia, while<br />

Brynne Adkins plays Julia’s cousin, Holly,<br />

and Cory Mitchell plays Glen Gulia, Julia’s<br />

boyfriend. The role of Julia’s mother, Angie,<br />

belongs to Sherry Holland. Michelle Carn is<br />

Rosie, Robbie’s grandmother with whom Robbie lives.<br />

Jay Hale serves as the show’s musical director, Amy Davidge is<br />

the choreographer, and Bowen Moss is the technical director.<br />

Shows are at 7:30 p.m. <strong>July</strong> 26-27 and 2:30 p.m. <strong>July</strong> 28. Tickets<br />

are $12 for adults and $10 for students and can be purchased at<br />

none. There is no pay rate specifically for special council meetings<br />

or work meetings. The mayor receives a rate of $625 per month, according<br />

to fiscal officer Courtney Bricker.<br />

The new ordinance calls for paying council members by the meeting—$100<br />

for each regular meeting and $25 for each special meeting<br />

or work session attended, not to exceed $400 per month. The pay for<br />

the president pro temp would be $150 per regular meeting and $25<br />

per special meeting or work session, not to exceed $500 per month.<br />

The mayor’s salary would increase to $12,000 annually and include<br />

the option of receiving medical insurance.<br />

Craig Hix was the only council member present who voted “no”<br />

on the first reading of the legislation. The second reading will take<br />

place at the village’s next regular council meeting at 7 p.m. <strong>July</strong> 22.

• Bookmobile. The bookmobile’s summer schedule runs on<br />

Last month, the village of West Jefferson created its own building,<br />

zoning and planning department. This month, council approved<br />

a restructured building, zoning and planning fee schedule.<br />

The new schedule is easier to read and more closely matches the<br />

fee systems set by the state and other nearby municipalities and<br />

counties, said Tom Hale, director.<br />

The main change, he explained, is that building permit fees are<br />

now based on square footage, rather than a combination of square<br />

footage, building materials, and other factors.<br />

In related action, council gave the mayor and public service director<br />

approval to enter into an agreement by which the city of London<br />

will pay West Jefferson $112,000 per year for building<br />

inspection services. London city council was scheduled to vote on<br />

the agreement at their <strong>July</strong> 18 meeting. (The meeting took place<br />

after the <strong>Madison</strong> <strong>Messenger</strong>’s press deadline; look for updates in<br />

the next edition.)<br />

West Jefferson already has an agreement to provide building inspection<br />

services for the village of Plain City and, on <strong>July</strong> 16, the<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> County commissioners signed on to have West Jefferson<br />

perform the county’s residential building inspections at a cost of<br />

$55 per inspection to the county.<br />

In other action, council held a first reading on legislation to add<br />

a new zoning district known as a planned unit development (PUD).<br />

PUDs allow for creative development designs and combinations of<br />

business and living environments that don’t fit into standard zoning<br />

districts. A public hearing will take place at council’s Aug. 5 meeting<br />

after which council plans to vote on the measure.<br />

Council repealed and replaced a measure it passed on June 3 involving<br />

tax incentives for Hillwood, a Texas-based developer that<br />

plans to build an 844,000 square-foot distribution warehouse in the<br />

village’s commerce park. Hillwood no longer wants to enter into the<br />

TIF (tax increment financing) portion of the agreement. Instead,<br />

the village will execute the TIF itself.<br />

Mayor Ray Martin administered the oath of office to new police<br />

officers Danni Hiles and Nathan Martin. Christopher Floyd, who<br />

will take office as West Jefferson’s new police chief on <strong>July</strong> 29, was<br />

on hand for the ceremony.<br />

Wednesdays through <strong>July</strong> 31. Stops include South Solon from 1:30<br />

to 2 p.m. and Midway from 2:15 to 2:45 p.m. Patrons can call the library<br />

to request certain items be delivered to either location.<br />

Commemorating 100 years of family gatherings<br />

The weather was beautiful<br />

for the 100th Reynolds family<br />

reunion celebrated on June 23<br />

at London Christian Fellowship on U.S.<br />

Route 42.<br />

The Reynolds family reunions originally<br />

began as the Reynolds/Holley reunions. The<br />

early reunions were held in and around<br />

Sabina, Ohio, near Wilmington. The reunions<br />

have been held every year since the<br />

end of World War I, complete with officer<br />

elections and meticulously kept minutes.<br />

This year’s reunion saw a total of 48 people,<br />

ages ranging from 9 months old (Abraham<br />

Wesley Smith) to 84 (Howard M.<br />

Reynolds). Relatives and friends traveled<br />

from Arcanum, Dayton, Xenia, Circleville,<br />

Derby, Columbus and Lancaster, as well as<br />

East Hanover, N.J., and Lawrenceburg,<br />

Ind.<br />

The day started with the blessing led by<br />

Dave Deao followed by a big potluck dinner.<br />

For the 100th celebration, we had a beautiful<br />

cake made by Danielle Wilson, granddaughter<br />

of Howard Reynolds.<br />

We followed with a meeting to discuss officers,<br />

significant events and future reunions.<br />

This year’s officers are: president,<br />

Jerry Reynolds; secretary, Karen Deao;<br />

Summertime brings warmer weather<br />

and more outside activities. Spending time<br />

outdoors is linked to better physical and<br />

mental health, however, everyone should<br />

consider how to protect their skin while<br />

having fun. Ultraviolet (UV) exposure from<br />

the sun is associated with most skin cancers,<br />

but sun protection can help prevent<br />

overexposure. According to the U.S. Centers<br />

for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC),<br />

skin cancer is still the most commonly diagnosed<br />

cancer in the United States.<br />

In 2014, the U.S. Surgeon General created<br />

a call to action to prevent skin cancer<br />

and provided prevention steps any individual<br />

can take to avoid costly medical treatment.<br />

An estimated 5 million Americans are<br />

treated for skin cancer each year with an<br />

annual cost of about $8.1 billion.<br />

Great Woodstock program<br />

On June 30, I went to the<br />

Timmons brothers’ program<br />

on the Woodstock concert of<br />

1969. What a job these men did on their program.<br />

They had great music and told us<br />

about what was going on at the time. The<br />

slide program also had all the groups that<br />

letter<br />

performed at the concert.<br />

I hope the Mount Sterling<br />

Community Museum will<br />

have them come back again. Thanks for a<br />

great program, John and David Timmons.<br />

How<br />

to Write an<br />

Ad that<br />

Sells<br />

1. Use a KEYWORD.This immediately tells the reader exactly<br />

what it is you have to sell.<br />

2. Make your description CLEAR and FACTUAL. State the<br />

year, make, model, color, size, and tell what condition the item<br />

is. Also state the special features.<br />

3. State the PRICE. Successful Classified advertisers have<br />

learned that the price in an ad helps increase the chances for<br />

results.<br />

4. If there’s a genuine sense of URGENCY, say so. The words<br />

“We’re Moving” or “Must Sell Fast”suggests that readers<br />

respond immediately.<br />

5. Include your PHONE NUMBER. Classifieds get results fast<br />

and often generate immediate sales. If you cannot be available<br />

to answer the phone at all times, be sure to specify calling times<br />

such as “AFTER 6 PM” or “BEFORE 11 AM.”<br />

If you need assistance, ask one of our friendly<br />

ADVISORS to help you word your ad!<br />
