Vacancy on MS<br />

village council<br />

By Andrew Garrett<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Mount Sterling village council has a vacant seat. Mike Bennett,<br />

who was appointed to council in March, tendered his resignation<br />

on Aug. 1.<br />

Bennett joined council (along with Craig Hix and Marci Darlington)<br />

after former council members Rebecca Burns, Tom Ward and<br />

Tammy Vansickle resigned in February.<br />

At council’s Aug. 12 meeting, Mayor Billy Martin read the following<br />

from Bennett’s resignation letter: “I regret to inform you<br />

that I am resigning from my position of village council immediately<br />

for personal reasons.”<br />

Martin said Bennett is moving to the Circleville area.<br />

Council unanimously voted to accept Bennett’s resignation.<br />

Council also voted unanimously to authorize the mayor to contract<br />

with Mark Pitstick for the position of village law director. The<br />

law director’s contract is up for renewal every two years, according<br />

to Pitstick. He has been in the position for 20 years, he said.<br />

Council also passed a measure allowing for the control of removal<br />

of grasses and noxious weeds on lots within the village corporation<br />

limits. Lawns must be maintained at a height of no more<br />

than eight inches. Properties with grasses or weeds exceeding this<br />

height will receive a posting from the village administrator or his<br />

designee ordering the property owner to comply within 48 hours.<br />

If the property owner does not, village agents will mow the lot and<br />

bill the property owner for the service. If the property owner fails<br />

to pay the bill, the village will place a tax lien on the property with<br />

the county auditor.<br />

Martin announced that the first phase of the village-wide pothole<br />

patching project is complete. He said that the largest, most offensive<br />

potholes in the areas most traveled in the village have been fixed.<br />

He said that the Cliffview Drive and Rosewood Avenue areas will<br />

be addressed in the second phase of the project. An exact start date<br />

was not given, but Martin said it won’t be long before work begins.<br />

All sorts of vintage vehicles, like this snazzy pickup, will line the streets during the 17th Annual Plain City<br />

Classic Car Cruise-In on Aug. 24.<br />

Vroom! Vroom! in Plain City<br />

On Aug. 24, the 17th Annual Plain City Classic Car<br />

Cruise-In will fill the streets of Plain City with collector<br />

cars, trucks and motorcycles. Uptown Plain City<br />

Organization (UPCO) hosts the event. Chapman Ford<br />

is the primary sponsor.<br />

From 1 to 8 p.m., vintage vehicles will line Main<br />

and Chillicothe streets. Bring your classic car, truck<br />

or motorcycle or just stop by to see classics like a 1957<br />

Thunderbird, a 1936 Chevy pickup or any of the other<br />

200 registered vehicles.<br />

DJ Noisy Neighbors will spin classic tunes, and<br />

local band, The Groove, will perform from 4 to 7 p.m.<br />

Food trucks will be available the entire show, and the<br />

Alder board mulls rental policy for new athletic field<br />

Jonathan Alder school leaders are discussing whether they will allow outside rental of the newly completed<br />

synthetic turf athletic field at the high school.<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

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

Jonathan Alder High School’s new synthetic turf athletic field is<br />

complete. Among the first events to take place on the field were football<br />

practice on Aug. 9, a meet-the-teams night and stadium dedication<br />

on Aug. 15, and two boys’ soccer games on Aug. 16.<br />

The school district’s teams aren’t the only ones excited about the<br />

new field. Groups outside the school want to play on it, too, and<br />

school leaders are deciding whether they will allow outside use and,<br />

if they do, at what price.<br />

“We’ve already had requests from different youth groups of our<br />

own who want to get on the field,” said Superintendent Gary Chapman<br />

about Jonathan Alder area youth sports programs. “They want<br />

to play on the field, to have the experience.”<br />

Chapman reviewed the district’s facility use policy at the Aug.<br />

12 school board meeting and asked board members if they think<br />

TURF<br />

Continued from page 1<br />

changes are needed specific to rental of the<br />

synthetic turf field.<br />

Currently, the policy allows rental of the<br />

high school stadium. Fees depend on who<br />

wants to use it. There is no charge for<br />

Jonathan Alder residents, school groups,<br />

alumni, booster clubs, parent-teacher organizations,<br />

Scouts, youth recreation programs<br />

and adult education programs. The fee is<br />

$500 without lights or $750 with lights for<br />

local community groups, such as service<br />

clubs, the Chamber of Commerce, civic organizations,<br />

churches (for occasional use),<br />

adult sports groups, and the county arts<br />

council. The fee is $750 without lights or<br />

$1,000 with lights for other groups, such as<br />

businesses, churches (for regular use), and<br />

other schools.<br />

The facility use policy states that the<br />

school board considers the school premises<br />

to be “a community center operating in partnership<br />

with other groups within the community”<br />

and encourages community groups<br />

to use them.<br />

However, board president Steve Votaw<br />

said the circumstances associated with the<br />

new field are different, since the field was<br />

paid for primarily through private donations<br />

at a cost of over $500,000.<br />

He also stated, “If you ruin this turf, it’s<br />

a major expense, probably,” as opposed to<br />

repairing a grass field.<br />

Board member Shannon Foust said the<br />

district should discourage rental of the field<br />

or not offer it at all.<br />

Board member Christine Blacka wondered<br />

if the district would need to charge<br />

renters a separate fee to have a trained person<br />

run the new high-tech scoreboard,<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> County-London City Health District;<br />

• Paint Township tax levy—Renewal of<br />

1.1 mills for five years for maintaining and<br />

operating cemetery;<br />

• Pleasant-Darby Union Cemetery District<br />

tax levy—Renewal of 1 mill for five<br />

years for maintaining and operating cemeteries;<br />

• Pleasant Valley Joint Fire District tax<br />

levy—Replacement of 10 mills for five years<br />

for fire and emergency medical service;<br />

• Range Township tax levy—Renewal of<br />

1.2 mills for five years for maintaining and<br />

operating Range Township cemeteries;<br />

• Range Township tax levy—Renewal of<br />

0.6 mill for five years for maintenance,<br />

salaries, and purchasing supplies for the<br />

years for current expenses;<br />

levy No. 2—Renewal of 1.5 mills for five<br />

years for current expenses;<br />

• Village of South Solon tax levy—Renewal<br />

of 2 mills for five years for current expenses.<br />

which cost over $150,000.<br />

Chapman said the district has “never<br />

said no” to requests for renting the stadium.<br />

He also noted that some school districts<br />

charge, no matter who wants to use their facilities.<br />

Board members asked Chapman to look<br />

into what other districts do. They want comparisons<br />

for facility rentals in general, plus<br />

information from districts that have made<br />

the switch from grass to synthetic turf. They<br />

also asked him to look into possible liability<br />

issues and the scoreboard operation question.<br />

Chapman said he will report back with<br />

the information at the next school board<br />

meeting, set to take place at 6:30 p.m. Sept.<br />

9 at the high school.<br />

Also at the Aug. 12 meeting, Chapman<br />

shared key back-to-school dates for<br />

Safety Expo slated for Aug. 24 at fairgrounds<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

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

Every year, hundreds of children and adults flock to<br />

the <strong>Madison</strong> County Fairgrounds in London to see helicopters<br />

land, watch police dogs strut their stuff, and<br />

get inside looks at fire engines and other emergency<br />

equipment.<br />

It’s all part of the annual Safety Expo hosted by the<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> County Emergency Management Agency<br />

(EMA). This year’s event is set for 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Aug. 24.<br />

“There will be several exhibits to provide a fun, safe<br />

and interesting hands-on learning adventure for children<br />

to meet our local first responders and to practice<br />

safety lessons,” said Debbie Sims, EMA director.<br />

Last year, approximately 850 people attended the<br />

expo. Everything is free, from admission to food.<br />

Among the event’s features are K9 demonstrations,<br />

Touch-A-Truck displays, the state EMA’s safe room display,<br />

fire safety demonstrations, COSI Science Spots,<br />

and landings by medical emergency helicopters.<br />

The Friends of <strong>Madison</strong> County Parks and Trails,<br />

with assistance from law enforcement representatives,<br />

will run a bike rodeo. Children are invited to ride bikes<br />

through the different stations to learn about bicycle<br />

safety. Children who don’t already have a bike helmet<br />

will receive one.<br />

Health and emergency response agencies will provide<br />

information on seatbelt safety, mental health, peer<br />

pressure, bullying and other safety topics.<br />

At 10:30 a.m., a bench at the fairgrounds will be dedicated<br />

to the memory of Bradley J. Haynes of London, a firefighter<br />

and paramedic who died in a helicopter accident on Jan. 29 of this<br />

year.<br />

The expo also includes bouncy houses, balloon sculptures, face<br />

painting and caricatures. Additionally, visitors can enjoy hamburgers,<br />

hot dogs, bratwursts, chips, pop, and an ice cream social.<br />

Visitors are asked to use the Garfield Avenue entrance to the<br />

fairgrounds. The event will go on, rain or shine. For more information,<br />

call <strong>Madison</strong> County EMA at (740) 852-4200.<br />

a homemaker once she had children, until the youngest started<br />

school. This is when she started cooking for <strong>Madison</strong>-Plains Schools.<br />

flower and vegetable gardens. She canned or froze<br />

everything she could. She picked wild blackberries for<br />

baked steak dinner. As her grandchildren went through<br />

school, they would get off the bus at “grandma’s” house<br />

with a snack ready for each of them. Mabel left the<br />

school system in 1987 with the urging of her dearest<br />

friend, Marie (Nibert) Roberts. She accepted a food service<br />

position at London Correctional Institute. This is<br />

where she met her second husband, Pearl Davis. They<br />

Schools approve tax agreement<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Jefferson Local school board members gave the<br />

thumbs-up to a CRA/TIF financing agreement for new<br />

industrial development, albeit with a money-generating<br />

twist for the district.<br />

The board unanimously approved a Community<br />

Reinvestment Area/Tax Increment Financing agreement<br />

on Aug. 12, alongside a school district donation<br />

agreement with Pizzuti Development.<br />

The donation agreement–in the works for months<br />

as part of an effort to recoup some of the money the district<br />

loses with abatements in CRA/TIF development<br />

areas–provides the district with one cent per developed<br />

square foot of space.<br />

According to David Harper, school board president,<br />

the funds will be released to the district “when the (village)<br />

issues an occupancy permit and notifies the district.”<br />

Superintendent William Mullett previously said there<br />

is a misconception about the amount of taxes the district<br />

collects from West Jefferson’s industrial park TIF, which<br />

is approximately $200,000. Because of the agreement,<br />

the district also forgoes property tax for the area.<br />

The agreement with Pizzuti is for space developed<br />

during the life of the tax abatement.<br />

The district recently passed a resolution approving<br />

a 100 percent property tax abatement for an 840,000<br />

square-foot speculation warehouse, which now could<br />

generate $8,400 annually for Jefferson Local Schools<br />

under the one-cent agreement.<br />

Similar abatement legislation was passed for a 205-<br />

acre Duke site at Park 70.<br />

“School district taxable boundaries decrease with tax<br />

exempt space,” Harper had said previously. “Examples<br />

include Metro Parks expansion, the OSU vet farm, religious,<br />

church and other such exemptions, the Enterprise<br />

Commercial Park, Battelle and government<br />

owned facilities.”<br />

In other action, the board approved filling two teaching<br />

slots–one at the middle school and another at the<br />

high school in the English department. Mullett said the<br />

positions were the only new certified hires for the <strong>2019</strong>-<br />

20 school year.<br />

Extracurricular contacts were awarded to: Nick<br />

Houk, high/middle school assistant athletic director;<br />

John Koehler, physical fitness; Jennifer Siddiqi, mock<br />

trial advisor; and Mike Harkleroad, Envirothon advisor.<br />

Helping to feed hungry children<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> County Farm Bureau board<br />

members present a check for $1,600<br />

to Tracy Kronk, founder of Sufficient<br />

Grace, a non-profit organization that<br />

provides school children in need<br />

with food to take home. The organization<br />

serves children in seven<br />

school districts in <strong>Madison</strong>, Union<br />

and Clark counties. On hand for the<br />

check presentation were: (front row,<br />

from left) Mary Griffith, Priscilla Powers,<br />

Tracy Kronk, Andra Troyer, Dale<br />

Rapp; (back row) Mike Vallery, Jared<br />

Troyer, Kyle Young and Jonathan<br />

Frances. The Farm Bureau donates<br />

to several local causes using membership<br />

funds. This year, in addition<br />

• Treat clothing and gear, such as pants, boots, socks and tents,<br />

with a product containing permethrin, or buy permethrin-treated<br />

clothing and gear.<br />

• Wear long pants, long sleeves and long socks. Tuck pant legs<br />

into socks.<br />

• Wear light colors to make it easier to see ticks.<br />

If you find a tick attached to the body, here are some tips for<br />

safely removing it:<br />

• Use fine-tipped tweezers to grasp the tick as close to the skin’s<br />

surface as possible.<br />

• Pull it away from your skin with steady, even pressure.<br />

• Do not twist or jerk the tick, which can cause the mouth parts<br />

to break off and remain in the skin. If this happens, remove the<br />

mouth parts with tweezers. If you are unable to do this easily with<br />

clean tweezers, leave it alone and let the skin heal.<br />

• Do not use petroleum jelly, a hot match, nail polish or any<br />

other “folk” remedies to remove a tick as these methods do not work.<br />

• Dispose of the tick in a sealed bag and be careful not to crush<br />

it with your fingers.<br />

• If you have flu-like symptoms after finding a tick attached to<br />

your skin, see a doctor immediately.<br />

and Dick Hughes; (back row) Lions Club President Jim Bates, club members Mike<br />

Bridge installed at park<br />

The London Lions Club opened a new<br />

bridge at Cowling Park on North Main<br />

Street in London. The bridge spans the<br />

creek along the park’s east side to provide<br />

walkers with a convenient way to enter the<br />

main park area from Walnut Street.<br />

The bridge was built to celebrate 100<br />

years of Lions Club service to humanity and<br />

serves as a visible reminder of the organization’s<br />

contributions to the community. The<br />

bridge was built in conjunction with construction<br />

of the Access Cowling playground<br />

to make Cowling Park accessible and inclusive<br />

to everyone.<br />

The London Community Organization’s<br />

Access Cowling project includes construction<br />

of a multi-purpose path that will connect<br />

the bridge to Main Street.<br />

“The Lions’ Bridge demonstrates what<br />

can be accomplished when different governmental<br />

entities and non-profit organizations<br />

focus on achieving a common goal,” said<br />

London Lions Club President James Bates.<br />

“On behalf of the Lions Club, I express our<br />

heartfelt gratitude for the cooperation that<br />

resulted in the construction of the bridge.”<br />

“This is another great addition to Cowling<br />

Park and the continued growth of the<br />

Access Cowling project,” said London Mayor<br />

Patrick Closser. “I would like to thank all of<br />

those involved, especially the London Lions<br />

Club for their support and vision.”<br />

Checking out the cheetah<br />

Mount Sterling Public Library hosted the Columbus Zoo and the Cheetah Conservation<br />

Fund Aug. 12 at the Mount Sterling Community Center. A crowd of over 50 people<br />

attended the event and had the opportunity for limited interaction with an actual cheetah.<br />

The program was the last in a series of events and activities associated with the<br />

library’s summer reading program.

Flags for Heroes returns<br />

The London Rotary Club is gearing up<br />

for its 2nd Annual Flags for Heroes. The<br />

club invites the public to celebrate the heroes<br />

in their lives by sponsoring American<br />

flags in their honor for display Sept. 12-15<br />

on the <strong>Madison</strong> County courthouse lawn.<br />

A hero can be a member of the military,<br />

police, fire or other first responder who puts<br />

his or her life at risk every day for others.<br />

Or they can be a community leader, pastor,<br />

teacher, coach, mentor, family member,<br />

caretaker—anyone living or deceased who<br />

has made a positive impact.<br />

The name of each hero will be read at a<br />

flag posting ceremony at 12:45 p.m. Sept. 12<br />

on the courthouse lawn at the corner of<br />

High and Oak streets in London. The public<br />

is welcome to attend. The names also will be<br />

featured in a special announcement in the<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> <strong>Messenger</strong> on Sept. 15.<br />

“Last year’s event recognized 29 local heroes,”<br />

said Brendan Shea, Rotary Club president.<br />

“We received very positive feedback<br />

and were pleased with the response. We<br />

look forward to hopefully continuing to grow<br />

the event this year. Recognizing and honoring<br />

our heroes builds gratitude and pride in<br />

our community.”<br />

For $25, community members can publicly<br />

recognize their local hero. Checks<br />

should be made payable to “The London Rotary<br />

Club” and mailed to: Marshall Geib,<br />

280 W. High St., London, OH 43140. Geib is<br />

the club’s treasurer. Each submission<br />

should include the hero’s name, the sponsor’s<br />

name and the sponsor’s address and/or<br />

email. All information must be received no<br />

later than Aug. 31. Donations are not tax<br />

deductible.<br />

Proceeds will help to support London Rotary’s<br />

community giving and initiatives<br />

throughout the year. The club recently donated<br />

to the <strong>Madison</strong> Health hospital expansion,<br />

London High School turf field project,<br />

London High School band booster club, London<br />

Area Baseball Council, Rotary youth exchange<br />

program, and the Meals On Wheels<br />

and Sufficient Grace food programs, among<br />

other local organizations and charities.<br />

Rotary’s motto is “Service above self.”<br />

The mission of Rotary International is to<br />

provide service to others, promote integrity,<br />

and advance world understanding, goodwill<br />

and peace through its fellowship of business,<br />

professional and community leaders.<br />

London Rotary meets every Thursday<br />

from 12:05 to 12:55 p.m. at the <strong>Madison</strong><br />

County Senior Center in London. New members<br />

are welcome.<br />
