Hilltop history<br />

By Josephine Birdsell<br />

Staff Writer<br />

for success<br />

By Dedra Cordle<br />

Staff Writer<br />

With more than three decades of head<br />

coaching experience under his belt, Herb<br />

Sharfenaker knows the importance of<br />

having a good assistant. Not only can<br />

they keep track of stats and run an efficient<br />

practice when he is otherwise occupied,<br />

but they can be a great sounding<br />

board when strategies fail and problems<br />

arise.<br />

Believing in his track record of finding<br />

quality assistants, Sharfenaker did not<br />

question his judgment when he asked his<br />

son, Justin to help out at practice. What<br />

he could not know was that his request<br />

would set off a chain of events that would<br />

change the landscape of boys’ volleyball<br />

on the westside.<br />

It was a little over 10 years ago when<br />

scheduling conflicts with his wife caused<br />

Sharfenaker to bring his son with him as<br />

he led volleyball practice for a group of<br />

girls. Knowing that he had to keep his<br />

then 6-year-old occupied, he told him the<br />

importance of being a good assistant by<br />

staying out of trouble.<br />

“I thought he might be a bit of a problem,”<br />

Sharfenaker said, a special education<br />

teacher at Briggs High School, with a<br />

laugh. “He was young and easily distracted.<br />

I didn’t want him wandering onto the<br />

court and getting hit by a ball going 50<br />

miles per hour.”<br />

Fortunately for the Sharfenaker family,<br />

Justin kept his distance from the<br />

action but he says that was only because<br />

he was glued, figuratively, to his seat.<br />

“I fell in love with the sport the<br />

moment I first saw it,” he said.<br />

He was enamored with the speed of<br />

the game, by the passion the players were<br />

showing and the reaction from the crowd<br />

of spectators.<br />

“Everyone was just so into it,” he said.<br />

“I was hooked.”<br />

It also didn’t hurt that his older sister,<br />

Sarah was a player as well.<br />

“She was my idol,” he said. “I wanted<br />

to be just like her.”<br />

Justin Sharfenaker, a recent graduate of Briggs High School, was instrumental to the<br />

foundation of the boys’ volleyball team. Not only did he help establish the team in<br />

2017, but he also left a legacy of records and awards for others to chase.<br />

Throughout the years, Justin happily<br />

“tagged along” with his father to practice<br />

and helped collect errant balls and keep<br />

track of stats. Eventually, he decided to<br />

join in on the fun.<br />

“An assistant came up to me one day<br />

and told me that Justin had a lot of raw<br />

talent,” Sharfenaker said. “He could jump<br />

really high and spike the ball really hard<br />

and just had a thirst for learning more.<br />

“Around the age of 12, he joined a volleyball<br />

club (Vanguard) because his middle<br />

school didn’t have a team. He’s been<br />

playing ever since.”<br />

When entering his freshman year at<br />

Briggs in 2016, the right-side hitter was<br />

discouraged to learn that the high school<br />

did not have a boys’ volleyball team. He<br />

decided that needed to change.<br />

“What I learned that year was a lot of<br />

people had never heard of men’s volleyball,”<br />

Justin said. “They thought it was a<br />

sport only for girls. I wanted to form a<br />

boys’ team because I wanted to have people<br />

open their world up to a different<br />

sport.”<br />

With the approval of the school, the<br />

Bruins established a boys’ volleyball team<br />

his sophomore year. More than 12 people<br />

joined, most doing so only because Justin<br />

Jennie Kepler stood at the front of the<br />

Westgate Lodge ballroom, alongside a<br />

neatly laid line of papers, each detailing a<br />

historic political figure from the Hilltop.<br />

“People underestimate the power of the<br />

Hilltop,” Kepler said, “and not just politically,<br />

but as far as our ability to see one<br />

another’s humanity.”<br />

On Aug. 10, Kepler gave a presentation<br />

on the history of politics in the Hilltop from<br />

the 1920s to the 1960s. It was one of a larger<br />

series of workshops and presentations<br />

Kepler is hosting on the history of the area.<br />

“The Hilltop used to be very politically<br />

powerful. Although, for those of us who live<br />

promised they did not have to wear<br />

“That was one of my most successful<br />

recruiting pitches,” he joked.<br />

Under the director of former girls’ volleyball<br />

icon Nolla Harris, the team went 3-<br />

3 in the city league and had an overall<br />

record of 6-9.<br />

“We were a bit of a Frankenstein team<br />

our first year,” said Justin. “We didn’t do<br />

too badly but there were a lot of pieces that<br />

still needed to be pieced together.”<br />

The following year, which saw Justin’s<br />

father taking over head coaching duties<br />

(Sharfenaker also coaches the girls’ volleyball<br />

team), they took first place in the city<br />

league.<br />

too,” said Justin, who racked up a slew of<br />

honors, including that of Player of the Year<br />

for the City League, District II and First<br />

Team All-State.<br />

For his senior year, the team made it a<br />

goal to reach the state championship. They<br />

went all the way to regionals, but were<br />

defeated by St. Charles.<br />

“It wasn’t what we had hoped, but we<br />

played our best and had a great time just<br />

being together,” he said.<br />

Though the team may have come up<br />

short, they took first place in the City<br />

League once again, and even nabbed the<br />

top spot as the Division II District<br />

Champions. A number of teams earned city<br />

league honors (such as Quinten Johnston,<br />

and Justin was once again given a slew of<br />

Player of the Year awards, including that<br />

of the Division II State Player of the Year.<br />

Most recently, he was selected as a High<br />

School All-American by the American<br />

Volleyball Coaches Association. That honor<br />

goes to only a handful of players throughout<br />

the country.<br />

Justin said when he was first dragged to<br />

volleyball practice 12 years ago, he never<br />

would have thought this would be his trajectory;<br />

that he would start a high school<br />

team, set records and garner awards as a<br />

player and become the standard future<br />

players aspire to be.<br />

“All I wanted to do was play and hopefully<br />

inspire others to play as well,” said<br />

the freshman at Lincoln Memorial<br />

University. “It’s wild and humbling to<br />

think I could have made some kind of<br />

impact on this sport that I love.”<br />

In January of 2020, Justin and his<br />

Railsplitters will take on the Ohio State<br />

Buckeyes’ men’s volleyball team in<br />

Columbus. Though he won’t be able to<br />

catch a Bruins volleyball game at that time<br />

(the boys’ season starts in March), Justin<br />

said he knows they will be practicing hard<br />

to be better.<br />

“I think there is a true passion now at<br />

our school for boys volleyball,” he said. “I<br />

think their future is going to be really<br />

bright.”<br />

Government Focus<br />

Resource website launched on the Hilltop<br />

By Josephine Birdsell<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Franklinton Urban Empowerment Lab,<br />

a non-profit focused on community development,<br />

launched a new website to share<br />

information on resources in the Hilltop.<br />

The site, HilltopUSA.org, features a calendar<br />

of community events in the Hilltop<br />

along with information on community<br />

resources in 11 different categories: emergency<br />

services, health and social services,<br />

food, housing, education, business and<br />

workforce, faith, youth and family, recreation<br />

and the arts, government services,<br />

and refugee and immigrant services.<br />

By Amanda Ensinger<br />

Staff Writer<br />

In an effort to enhance neighborhoods in the area, as well as<br />

generate revenue for the community, a local township is continuing<br />

to take possession of blighted properties.<br />

At a recent Franklin Township meeting, the board of trustees<br />

agreed to move forward with the transfer of Central Ohio<br />

Community Improvement Corporation (COCIC) properties. These<br />

properties were acquired by the COCIC as result of delinquent<br />

taxes, homes being abandoned or deemed blighted.<br />

At the meeting, the board accepted four additional properties<br />

from COCIC at 1207 Hart Road, 1884 Little Ave., 1765 Marsdale<br />

Ave. and 1295 Marsdale Ave.<br />

To date, the township has sold more than five property and has<br />

received over $112,000 for those homes.<br />

“Some of the properties are empty pieces of land that we would<br />

like to see developed,” said trustee John Fleshman. “We would love<br />

to see new builds on these properties that would spur economic<br />

development instead of someone buying the<br />

property and using it to store junk cars.”<br />

The township has hired a real estate<br />

agent to help with the sale of these houses<br />

and plans on reinvesting the money from<br />

the sale of the homes into the township.<br />

“All the money raised from the sale of<br />

these houses will go into a capital improvement<br />

fund and be used for improvements in<br />

the community,” Fleshman said. “That<br />

could be used to build a community meeting<br />

place, a separate building for the police<br />

department or expanding parking at<br />

Township Hall. It won’t be used for salaries<br />

and will be reinvested in the community.”<br />

The information categories were outlined<br />

by CelebrateOne, the Greater<br />

Columbus Infant Mortality Task Force, as<br />

the “determinants of health.”<br />

“Our goal is to keep people informed,<br />

involved and connected with resources in<br />

the neighborhood,” said Ashley Montana,<br />

community engagement manager at FUEL<br />

Franklinton.<br />

FUEL Franklinton created the site as a<br />

sister-site to Franklinton.org, which has<br />

been active for just over a year.<br />

CelebrateOne funded the creation of both<br />

sites.<br />

CelebrateOne awarded FUEL<br />

Franklinton with a grant for the initial creation<br />

of Franklinton.org. CelebrateOne<br />

was pleased with the outcome of<br />

Franklinton.org and decided to expand the<br />

information program to the Hilltop, said<br />

Montana.<br />

HilltopUSA.org was available to the<br />

public in mid-July, but the website wasn’t<br />

officially launched until Aug. 6, at the<br />

National Night Out event in the Hilltop.<br />

Since it went live, the site has received<br />

roughly 1,200 visits, said Montana. FUEL<br />

Franklinton hopes the site will continue to<br />

receive about 1,000 visits each month.<br />

HISTORY<br />

Continued from page 1<br />

here now, we don’t think of it that way,” Kepler said.<br />

For an hour, she traced the political history of the<br />

Hilltop back to its roots. Beginning in the 1920s, the<br />

Hilltop had political influence throughout the city of<br />

Columbus.<br />

“Newspapers actually wrote about the Hilltop like it<br />

was a separate political entity,” she said.<br />

Then, as politicians began moving from the east to<br />

west side of Hague Avenue, certain parts of the Hilltop<br />

lost political influence. Redlining, the practice of denying<br />

loans or insurance to people living in poorer areas,<br />

marked certain areas of the community as more desirable<br />

than others, further shifting the regions of political<br />

influence within the community.<br />

Eventually, political influence was lost throughout<br />

the majority of the Hilltop. Kepler doesn’t have enough<br />

information to speculate as to how or why the influence<br />

was lost, but she wants to look into it, she said.<br />

She walked through what she referred to as the<br />

“ebbs and flows of political energy” within the Hilltop,<br />

all while retelling anecdotes about the beloved mayors<br />

of Columbus from the Hilltop and the political rivals<br />

community events<br />

the third Wednesday of each month from 4 to 6 p.m. at<br />

2879 Valleyview Drive in Columbus. For more information,<br />

call the YMCA at 614-276-8224.<br />

who lived on the same street as one another.<br />

The goal of this history workshop, and the others<br />

Kepler gives, was to give residents a reason to be proud<br />

of the Hilltop.<br />

“Everyone deserves to feel rooted in the community<br />

where they live,” she said.<br />

The history workshops are the newest part of<br />

Kepler’s long-standing love of Hilltop history. She<br />

grew up studying the history of the Hilltop with her<br />

mother, who was a member of the Hilltop Historical<br />

Society. And for the last nine years, she’s run a<br />

Facebook page, “Hilltop USA Memories,” to collect and<br />

share historical artifacts significant to the Hilltop.<br />

She plans to continue sharing Hilltop’s history as<br />

long as she can.<br />

“I could do this all day, everyday, seven days a<br />

week,” she said, “I’m so passionate about it.”<br />

Kepler’s next history workshop will be a “home history”<br />

workshop, where she will teach people how to<br />

research the history of their own houses. It will be held<br />

on Sept. 14 at 11:30 am at the Westwood Lodge.<br />

in the winter of 2001. Throughout her time<br />

with us, she covered numerous communities<br />

including the Hilltop, the Westland<br />

Area Commission, Jackson Township,<br />

Pleasant Township and West Jefferson.<br />

She also covered the Jonathan Alder and<br />

Madison Plains school boards. Her dedication<br />

was unrivaled.<br />

Last winter, Sandi covered the relocation<br />

and restoration of the train depot on<br />

Front Street in Grove City to Century<br />

Village.<br />

“It took the workers hours to get the old<br />

train depot relocated within Grove City,”<br />

said Southwest and <strong>Westside</strong> <strong>Messenger</strong><br />

Editor Andrea Cordle. “It was a cold and<br />

rainy day. Sandi stayed there for hours,<br />

outside, to cover the event.”<br />

Sandi lived in the Lincoln Village area.<br />

She loved her community and loved covering<br />

it for the <strong>Westside</strong> edition.<br />

“Every year, I could count on Sandi to<br />

put together the Westland Area Business<br />

Association parade preview and parade<br />

marshal article,” said Cordle. “Sandi<br />

always looked forward to covering that<br />

event. It was just out her front door.”<br />

Working with someone for many years,<br />

you get to know them on a personal level.<br />

“What I will miss most about Sandi was<br />

her thoughtfulness,” said Cordle. “I love<br />

dachshunds and have two of them. Sandi<br />

would buy me these little wiener dog trinkets<br />

and she would<br />

also send me<br />

Facebook photos<br />

Random observations from my notebook on a lazy,<br />

summer day:<br />

•I recently watched the classic film, “The Wizard of<br />

Oz.” I’ve seen the movie plenty of times before, but this<br />

time I focused my viewing on Margaret Hamilton’s<br />

portrayal of the dreaded Wicked Witch of the West.<br />

Hamilton did a magnificent job as she brought menace,<br />

malevolence, and even a bit of sick humor to the role<br />

(“How about a little fire Scarecrow”). Her portrayal<br />

embodies everything one wants to see in a wicked<br />

witch.<br />

•Blooming black-eyed-susans on a hot, sunny July<br />

day are one of the most beautiful sights of summer.<br />

•Ever since I visited Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello<br />

in the mid-1990s, and saw that he kept notes on the<br />

weather and nature, I’ve made notes on my calendar<br />

each year on things such as when the forsythia first<br />

blooms, when the peonies in my yard bloom, when I see<br />

my first lightning bug in the yard, when I hear my first<br />

90 day cicada in the summer, when the day lilies<br />

bloom, and when the purple bloom of ironweed first<br />

appears in the fields. It’s interesting how, from year to<br />

year, the dates of these occurrences are close to being<br />

the same.<br />

In June, Sandi Latimer earned an honorable<br />

mention from the National<br />

Federation of Press Women for a story<br />

she wrote about a young man earning his<br />

Eagle Scout Award. The story was featured<br />

in the Southwest <strong>Messenger</strong>.<br />

and video clips featuring dachshunds. She<br />

knew how to brighten my day, if just for a<br />

moment.”<br />

Madison <strong>Messenger</strong> Editor Kristy<br />

Zurbrick said Sandi was up for any assignment<br />

you threw at her.<br />

“It didn’t matter if it was covering a<br />

school board or village council meeting or<br />

writing about the retirement of the police<br />

department’s canine officer,” said Zurbrick.<br />

“You could tell she just loved being a<br />

reporter.<br />

“I’ve always admired Sandi’s gusto for<br />

life. She was always out doing something -<br />

going to high school football and basketball<br />

games, listening to live music, volunteering.<br />

She was always seeking and finding<br />

new knowledge, new friendships, and new<br />

experiences.”<br />

“Sandi was interested in everything and<br />

everyone, which made her a good journalist<br />

and writer,” said Columbus <strong>Messenger</strong><br />

Managing Editor Rick Palsgrove. “She was<br />

dedicated to her craft, cherished history,<br />

and cared about people.”<br />

In addition to working as a freelance<br />

writer for the Columbus <strong>Messenger</strong><br />

Newspapers, Sandi was a staff writer for<br />

United Press International from 1968 —<br />

1990 and she worked as a sports clerk for<br />

the Columbus Dispatch from 1999 — 2009.<br />

She graduated from Kent State University<br />

in 1965 with a degree in broadcast journalism.<br />

Sandi grew up in Bucyrus, Ohio. She<br />

married Red Latimer in 1974. She published<br />

several books, won numerous journalism<br />

awards and even had a blog about<br />

all her walking adventures.<br />

For instance, I saw my first lightning bug in 2018<br />

on June 9, which is the same date as in <strong>2019</strong>. In 2018<br />

I heard my first 90 day cicada on June 30 and in <strong>2019</strong><br />

it was on July 2. Ironweed is beautiful, but also a portent<br />

that summer is winding down. Last year I saw my<br />

first ironweed bloom on July 28. These are simple<br />

observations, but also an easy way of keeping in touch<br />

with nature and the changing seasons.<br />

•There’s something reassuring about looking out<br />

the windows of my home in the early evening and seeing,<br />

one by one, the lights coming on across the yards<br />

in the houses of my neighbors. The lights are the signal<br />

that we’re all still here and snug in our homes at day’s<br />

end.<br />

My dad grew up on a farm along Shannon Road in<br />

Madison Township in the 1930s and 1940s. In those<br />

days the township was mostly made up of farms. There<br />

wasn’t much in the way of vehicle traffic on the roads<br />

either, so it was quiet, too. He said at night the only<br />

lights to be seen were the barely visible pinpoints of<br />

light dimly flickering across the fields from the windows<br />

of far distant farmhouses. That, and the stars in<br />

the sky.<br />

Community Focus<br />

Cooking, painting and more in Prairie Township<br />

By Amanda Ensinger<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Prairie Township residents will be able<br />

to put their culinary skills to work as a<br />

result of new programming offered at the<br />

Prairie Township Community Center.<br />

At a recent board meeting, center leadership<br />

talked about some of the events<br />

coming this fall to the center.<br />

Among the items discussed was a new<br />

parent and child cooking class that will be<br />

offered in September and November.<br />

“For this new class, we will be working<br />

with a local chef and will give kids and parents<br />

an opportunity to come in and make<br />

some meals together,” said Matt<br />

McCallum, recreation supervisor for the<br />

Free produce at Central Baptist<br />

Free fresh fruit and vegetables will be<br />

distributed on Sept. 14 to qualified, lowincome<br />

Franklin County residents. The<br />

fresh produce will be available at Central<br />

Baptist Church, 1955 Frank Road, beginning<br />

at 10:30 a.m. To assist in registration,<br />

bring a photo ID and your current address<br />

community center. “We have a kitchen<br />

space they will use and it will be a great<br />

opportunity for families to learn to cook<br />

together.”<br />

The classes cost $60 for residents and<br />

$65 for non-residents and will take place<br />

from Sept. 21 to Oct. 12 and Nov. 2 — 23.<br />

“The classes take place on Saturdays<br />

and are only an hour,” McCallum said.<br />

“Families will be making simple dishes<br />

they can make at home, such as pizza.”<br />

The community center will also bring<br />

back annual favorites.<br />

“We will be doing some parent and children<br />

painting classes again, like we did in<br />

the spring,” McCallum said. “These were a<br />

huge hit, so this time we will doing them<br />

around Halloween and Christmas. They<br />

will each be holiday themed, which we<br />

in Franklin County. You are asked to also<br />

bring heavy-duty bags, boxes or carts to<br />

carry the bulk produce home. For more<br />

information, contact the church at 614-279-<br />

3115 or www.centralbaptistcolumbus.org.<br />

Special Olympics breakfast<br />

The Westgate Masonic Lodge #623 is<br />

community events<br />

think families we really enjoy.”<br />

The center has been trying to add in new<br />

classes, as well as continuing with older<br />

popular ones in an effort to attract new<br />

families to the center. This summer, they<br />

offered a robotics class that taught children<br />

coding, something that will be beneficial in<br />

future careers.<br />

“When deciding what classes to offer, we<br />

look at what other communities are doing,”<br />

McCallum said. “We also look at what people<br />

have requested and what we think will<br />

bring people into the center.”<br />

Besides discussing community center<br />

programing, the board of trustees also commended<br />

Deputy Jason Ronk for his efforts<br />

in helping a local resident with a compliant<br />

they had with a neighbor.<br />

In the spring, township resident Nancy<br />

preparing breakfasts once a month to benefit<br />

the Special Olympics. The public is<br />

invited to have breakfast the second<br />

Saturday of each month. Adults pay $6,<br />

children age 3 and above pay $3 while children<br />

under 3 eat free. Serving is from 9<br />

a.m. to noon.<br />

Evans voiced her frustration with a neighbor<br />

who was repeatedly letting their dog<br />

onto the roof of their second story home.<br />

“I have lived in Prairie Township for 15<br />

years and planned to stay in my home<br />

through my golden years,” Evans said at<br />

the time. “However, I have a neighbor who<br />

is allowing their dog on the roof of their second<br />

story home. This dog is barking uncontrollably<br />

and making it impossible to live in<br />

my home.”<br />

Prairie Township Administrator Rob<br />

Peters said in the meeting that Deputy<br />

Ronk worked with the homeowner and a<br />

contractor to build the proper access for the<br />

dog. Ronk even went to Home Depot to help<br />

in securing the materials for the proper<br />

access.<br />

Free meal at Hoge Memorial<br />

There will be a free hot meal served at<br />

Hoge Memorial Presbyterian Church, 2930<br />

W. Broad St., from 5 to 6 p.m. every<br />

Saturday. For more information, contact<br />

FT awards student scholarships<br />

By Amanda Ensinger<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Several <strong>Westside</strong> students received a<br />

little help from a local township as they<br />

continue their education. At a recent<br />

Franklin Township board meeting, three<br />

students were awarded with scholarships<br />

from the township.<br />

Westland High School students Mumino<br />

Pemba and Wesley Estep received scholarships<br />

for $1,000 each, as well as Franklin<br />

Heights student Len Thang. All three students<br />

plan to attend The Ohio State<br />

University in the fall.<br />

The scholarships were funded through<br />

the new handheld camera system the<br />

township introduced in late 2018.<br />

According to township leadership, the<br />

handheld camera system allows township<br />

police to more efficiently enforce speed limits<br />

in the region and reduce traffic accidents.<br />

Using the handheld cameras,<br />

deputies have been positioned at high traffic<br />

areas were there has been increased<br />

speeding and accidents.<br />

The handheld camera system is used by<br />

one officer during the school hours, which<br />

is peak speeding time, according to<br />

Franklin Township Police Chief Byron<br />

Smith.<br />

Residents are ticketed for going 10 miles<br />

per hour or more over the speed limit. Each<br />

speeding ticket is priced at a flat $100 fee,<br />

according to Smith.<br />

To date, the township has written more<br />

than 3,800 tickets and collected over<br />

$104,000 in revenue for the township.<br />

These funds are being broken up and distributed<br />

to the general fund, road department,<br />

police department and the scholarship<br />

fund.<br />

“Sixty percent of the received fines goes<br />

to the police department. This money helps<br />

with equipment and manpower to address<br />

the other major complaint we have<br />

(drugs),” Smith said. “Ten percent of the<br />

money is diverted to roads, two percent of<br />

the money received is put away for the<br />

scholarship fund for graduating seniors<br />

and 28 percent of the money received goes<br />

to the general fund to be used for community<br />

projects.”<br />

“We are very excited to be able to offer<br />

these scholarships to graduating seniors<br />

from the region,” said Franklin Township<br />

trustee John Fleshman. “We are thrilled<br />

that we can help further these student’s<br />

education, while also helping reduce speeding<br />

and traffic accidents in the school zones<br />

in the township.”<br />

Also, at the meeting, the trustees<br />

approved a new logo for the township. The<br />

township had invited residents and nonresidents<br />

to submit a logo for the township<br />

that embodied the tagline “Franklin<br />

Township, past, present and future.”<br />

The winning logo was created by Robert<br />

McElheny of Prairie Township. The logo<br />

McElheny created includes the Briggs family<br />

home. The Briggs family was one of the<br />

first settlers in the region and embodies<br />

the township.<br />

“This was a great logo and includes<br />

everything we were looking for,” Fleshman<br />

said. “This will look great on our signage<br />

and further help define our township.”<br />

Trustee Aryeh Alex added that a new<br />

logo for the township is an investment in<br />

the future.<br />

“This is an investment in the children of<br />

this township and our future,” Alex said.<br />

“It also is another positive thing we are<br />

doing to enhance the township.”<br />

As a result of creating the winning<br />

design, McElheny will received $<strong>25</strong>0 from<br />

the township. He will see his logo on various<br />

signage throughout the township,<br />

including the township meeting hall.<br />

PAGE 10 - WESTSIDE MESSENGER - <strong>August</strong> <strong>25</strong>, <strong>2019</strong><br />

As someone with a limited interest in<br />

the discography of Bruce Springsteen, I<br />

had no pressing desire to see “Blinded by<br />

the Light,” a film that had often been<br />

referred to as an ode to the music and<br />

power of ‘The Boss.’ To be clear, I do not<br />

dislike the man nor am I diminishing his<br />

talent, but the prospect of sitting through a<br />

two-hour movie dominated by his music did<br />

not exactly whip me into a frenzy.<br />

As I sat in the theater before the show<br />

began, listening to someone singing a<br />

Springsteen song, I told myself that it<br />

wouldn’t be that bad, that it had other positive<br />

attributes such as being co-written<br />

and directed by Gurinder Chadha (of “Bend<br />

it Like Beckham” fame) and having a plot<br />

revolving around the experiences of a first<br />

and second generation immigrant family.<br />

And you know what? It wasn’t that bad. In<br />

fact, it was quite great.<br />

The film, which is loosely based on the<br />

memoir ‘Greetings from Bury Park: Race,<br />

Religion and Rock N’ Roll’ by journalist<br />

In Entertainment<br />

e Boss brings light and power to the big screen<br />

The Reel Deal - By Dedra Cordle<br />

Sarfraz Manzoor, takes place in the 1980s<br />

where work shortages, economic hardships<br />

and white nationalist groups reign<br />

supreme in the UK. Feeling the weight in<br />

this triangle of awful is Javed Khan (Viveik<br />

Kalra), a British-Pakistani teen who longs<br />

to leave his hometown of Luton and become<br />

a writer who makes a difference. His is a<br />

dream unexpressed as he knows his more<br />

traditional parents will not be supportive.<br />

To escape from high familial expectations<br />

and the sting of insults from<br />

strangers, Javed sinks into the world of<br />

poetry and songwriting, finding an escape<br />

in his original words even though he has no<br />

confidence in their worth.<br />

While walking and daydreaming in the<br />

halls at school, Javed runs into a fellow<br />

student named Roops (Aaron Phagura)<br />

who is upset at the potential damage to a<br />

beloved cassette tape. When Javed asks<br />

him who the musician is, the teen replies<br />

that it is “The Boss of us all,” which leaves<br />

him dumbfounded.<br />

www.columbusmessenger.com<br />

The following day at lunch, Roops slides<br />

two cassette tapes over to Javed, both by<br />

the artist Bruce Springsteen. He tells<br />

Javed that Bruce is a “direct line to all that<br />

is true” and bequeaths his prized possessions<br />

to his new friend.<br />

At first, Javed has no interest in listening<br />

to this Bruce fellow, but when he gets<br />

into an argument with his father<br />

(Kulvinder Ghir) and throws out all of his<br />

poems, he slips on some head phones, pops<br />

in the tape and presses play. When he<br />

hears ‘Dancing in the Dark,’ and then ‘The<br />

Promised Land,’ his mind transforms,<br />

bringing to life the lyrics on screen as they<br />

percolate in his brain. As he tells Roops<br />

later, it was like Bruce was singing directly<br />

to him when he sang of wanting change<br />

and feeling so weak that he just wants to<br />

explode. These scenes could have come<br />

across as immensely cheesy but they are<br />

shot and acted so earnestly that it was<br />

actually quite touching.<br />

With a message about the transformative<br />

power of music, “Blinded by the Light”<br />

toes the line between endearing and cloying<br />

though it never strays completely into<br />

the latter; it just skims the surface from<br />

time to time. What brings this film back,<br />

however, is the emotional core of Javed and<br />

his father and the push and pull they have<br />

between tradition and modernity.<br />

I did not expect to enjoy this movie as<br />

much as I did. The acting, especially by<br />

newcomer Kalra, is top notch and the secondary<br />

character have decent, albeit slightly<br />

underdeveloped arcs too. But what really<br />

makes this film is its connectivity with<br />

Springsteen’s music, particularly those of<br />

the classic masters. It taps into those times<br />

of uncertainty, anger, hope, love and all<br />

those emotions that music can express:<br />

though cheesy, it really is an ode to the<br />

power of music, especially that of<br />

Springsteen’s. Grade: B+<br />
