Graduation<br />

changes coming<br />

in SWCS<br />

By Dedra Cordle<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Recent changes to state graduation<br />

requirements were presented and discussed<br />

at the South-Western City Schools<br />

Board of Education meeting on Sept. 23.<br />

District officials say the members of the<br />

class of 2020 through 2022 will see a minimal<br />

difference in graduation requirements<br />

from previous years. Those who are<br />

On Sept. 28, childhood friends (from left to right) Jim Kuno, Dave Johnson and Danny Burns travelled to Washington D.C. on<br />

an Honor Flight. The Grove City residents, who are also veterans of the Vietnam War, joked that they had to sign a promise to<br />

their Honor Flight guardian Susan Park that they would behave.<br />

An honor among friends<br />

By Dedra Cordle<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Excitement reverberated through Jim<br />

Kuno as he prepared to board a plane<br />

bound for Washington D.C. Although the<br />

resident of Grove City had visited the<br />

nation’s capital a number of times before,<br />

he believed this experience could prove to<br />

be the most memorable of all.<br />

As he walked through the aisle, he<br />

looked around at his fellow passengers,<br />

nodding and smiling though it was early<br />

in the morning. And when he found his<br />

seat, he soaked in the moment for this<br />

was a flight filled with veterans like himself.<br />

Kuno had dreamed of this day for<br />

years, of the flight that would allow him<br />

to visit the war memorials alongside<br />

those who had also fought on foreign<br />

land. While honored to be amongst these<br />

special passengers, it was his two companions<br />

that made him feel right at<br />

home.<br />

“I don’t know if I would have wanted to<br />

do Honor Flight without these two beside<br />

me,” said Kuno, referring to his childhood<br />

friends Dave Johnson and Danny Burns.<br />

It was the late 1950s when Kuno’s<br />

family relocated from Columbus to Grove<br />

City, a move that wasn’t so popular with<br />

the young boy.<br />

It was always uncomfortable changing<br />

schools, he said, but fortunately he was<br />

able to make friends right away, one of<br />

whom was Burns.<br />

“We shared a lot of classes together at<br />

J.C. Sommer, so we were just kind of<br />

stuck with each other,” joked Burns.<br />

He said what kept their friendship<br />

alive throughout their adolescent was<br />

chasing different girls.<br />

“We never liked the same ones so we<br />

got along great,” he laughed.<br />

On their periphery was Johnson, an<br />

affable boy their age who hung around<br />

with the older crowd.<br />

“It wasn’t until high school that we<br />

really started to become friends,” said<br />

Kuno. “Danny knew him from grade<br />

school (the two were baseball rivals) but<br />

we didn’t start hanging out together until<br />

then.”<br />

Johnson joked it was because he was<br />

too cool for them.<br />

The City Beat<br />

Leaf collection service<br />

The city of Grove City offers residential<br />

leaf collection beginning Oct. 15. The city is<br />

divided into four collection areas, each<br />

assigned two week-long periods through<br />

Dec. 6.<br />

Prior to the first day of the designated<br />

week of collection, homeowners should<br />

rake leaves to the grassy area between the<br />

street and sidewalk or to the edge of the<br />

lawn, if there are no sidewalks. Leaf piles<br />

will not kill grass, although temporary fading<br />

may occur. Do not rake or blow leaves<br />

into the street, this can cause storm sewer<br />

blockages and parking issues. Vehicles<br />

should not be parked in front of, or on top<br />

of, leaves during scheduled collection<br />

weeks. This collection is for leaves only and<br />

Residents choosing to have leaves<br />

Wise, “whereas the changes for the class of<br />

2023 and beyond will be more significant.”<br />

Members of the class of 2020 through<br />

2022 will have to pass all mandatory high<br />

school courses and electives and continue<br />

to meet the standards in a number of pathways<br />

in order to graduate.<br />

The first pathway requires the completion<br />

of one of the following: earning 18<br />

graduation points on end of course exams;<br />

earning a remediation free score on the<br />

ACT or SAT; score 14 work ready points on<br />

the WorkKeys, or earn a 12-point, industry<br />

recognized credential or group of credentials.<br />

The second pathway requires students<br />

to meet at least two of the following<br />

options: earn a 2.5 grade point average during<br />

junior and senior year; complete a<br />

Capstone project; accumulate 120 hours of<br />

work or community service; or have three<br />

or more credits through College Credit<br />

Plus. Additional options in this pathway<br />

including earning an industry recognized<br />

credential, a WorkKeys score of three on<br />

each test, an OhioMeansJobs readiness<br />

seal or credit(s) and score of three or higher<br />

on Advanced Placement exams.<br />

The third pathway requires students to<br />

complete a career technical program and<br />

earn either proficiency on all WebXams, an<br />

approved industry recognized credential or<br />

accumulate 250 hours of workplace experience.<br />

Students in the class of 2021 or 2022<br />

who are on track to meet one of those pathways<br />

may continue to use them to satisfy<br />

graduation requirements, said Brad Faust,<br />

the district’s assistant superintendent of<br />

curriculum. They may also choose to follow<br />

the two permanent requirements established<br />

for the class of 2023 and beyond.<br />

According to Faust, the two permanent<br />

requirements are the passage of the state’s<br />

Algebra I and English II test, (the state has<br />

not determined the passage rate at this<br />

time) and acquiring two “diploma seals,”<br />

one of which must be state defined. Faust<br />

noted the specifics on the diploma seals<br />

have also yet to be determined.<br />

“We believe that we will be given more<br />

guidance by the state when we meet (with<br />

the state board of education) in <strong>October</strong>,”<br />

he said.<br />

Under the first permanent requirement,<br />

students who take the Algebra I and<br />

English II tests more than once and fail to<br />

pass can demonstrate “competency”<br />

through these following options: earning<br />

credit for one math and/or English course<br />

through College Credit Plus; demonstrate<br />

career readiness and technical skill<br />

through foundational and supporting<br />

options; enter into a contract to enlist in<br />

the military upon graduation.<br />

Under the second permanent requirement,<br />

students can earn any two of these<br />

diploma seals: OhioMeansJobs Readiness,<br />

State seal of Biliteracy, an industry recognized<br />

credential, a College Ready seal, or a<br />

military enlistment seal. Additional seals<br />

include science, honors diploma, technology,<br />

citizenship, fine and performing arts,<br />

student engagement and community service.<br />

Faust said he knows the requirements<br />

for the class of 2023 and beyond have been<br />

causing confusion but he is confident that<br />

the district staff is up to taking on the challenge.<br />

“There are many moving parts right<br />

now and some of the details have not totally<br />

been released by the state yet.”<br />

Faust added that the district has a “dedicated”<br />

staff that will help pull them forward<br />

through any implementation bumps<br />

in the road.<br />

Ragland was recognized by the Ohio School<br />

Boards Association for his contributions as<br />

a member of the association’s board of<br />

trustees.

FRIENDS<br />

Continued from page 1<br />

For the next four years, the trio did not<br />

help each other study while they were students<br />

at Grove City High School but they<br />

did support each other on their quests to<br />

get into some mischief.<br />

“We would all meet up at the Stardust<br />

and then go to Wollyburger and hang out<br />

and drink,” said Johnson. “It was the place<br />

to be and the thing to do at that time.”<br />

Burns, however, sees it differently.<br />

“We never got into any trouble,” he said,<br />

possibly crossing his fingers underneath<br />

the table at his Grove City home.<br />

“They were good guys,” interjected his<br />

wife, Cindy, “but don’t believe them when<br />

they say they never got into trouble.”<br />

Upon graduating in 1967, they took jobs<br />

at their family-operated companies and<br />

started to lose touch. Less than two years<br />

later, Johnson had joined the Navy, Burns<br />

and Kuno the Army and all were fighting<br />

in the Vietnam War.<br />

“We were stationed all over so we had no<br />

idea where everyone was,” said Kuno.<br />

When they returned home in the early<br />

1970s, they each sought employment,<br />

found the loves of their lives and started to<br />

raise their families.<br />

“There wasn’t a lot of time to get together,”<br />

said Johnson.<br />

“But we did try to go on fishing trips<br />

occasionally,” said Burns.<br />

“We were terrible fisherman and never<br />

caught anything though,” said Johnson.<br />

“We just liked the company,” said Kuno,<br />

who admitted they debated the merits of<br />

buying fish from the local market and<br />

throwing it in the lake so they could “catch”<br />

them.<br />

As the years passed, they saw each<br />

other from time to time while out on<br />

errands and kept in touch that way. Then<br />

came their retirement.<br />

Upon retiring as the maintenance<br />

supervisor at The Ohio State University in<br />

2011, Kuno looked forward to a quiet time<br />

watching the squirrels play in his yard.<br />

Then, one day, he stopped into a local<br />

McDonald’s to get a cup of coffee and ran<br />

into Burns.<br />

“We sat down and talked for hours,” said<br />

Burns.<br />

It soon became a tradition.<br />

Then they ran into Johnson. He pulled<br />

up a chair and talked to them for hours<br />

over breakfast. It soon became another tradition.<br />

Shortly thereafter came monthly card<br />

games, nights out with their wives and illconceived<br />

adventures on Lake Erie.<br />

“We were stranded once,” said Burns.<br />

“It was Dave’s fault.”<br />

“No, it wasn’t.” Johnson tried to explain.<br />

“They didn’t put the buoys out for the low<br />

water warning.”<br />

Kuno said they only made it out by the<br />

grace of God.<br />

“Danny and I served in the Army, so<br />

that means we don’t know how to swim,”<br />

he said. “We certainly weren’t going to get<br />

into that water to push us to safety so we<br />

waited until the boat just started floating<br />

www.columbusmessenger.com<br />

back to shore.”<br />

Though the trio joked that they needed<br />

irritation breaks from each other from time<br />

to time, they all wanted to take a trip<br />

together to Washington D.C. to view the<br />

memorials and monuments for those who<br />

had served. Upon the recommendation of a<br />

fellow veteran friend, Kuno suggested<br />

Honor Flight, a non-profit organization<br />

that sends veterans to the nation’s capital<br />

for free, and they all sent in their applications.<br />

“We didn’t know if we would all be<br />

approved at the same time but we knew we<br />

wanted to go together,” said Kuno.<br />

Surprisingly, they were approved for the<br />

same flight on Sept. 28 and each had to<br />

verbally promise their guardian, Susan<br />

Park, that they would behave.<br />

“We tried our best,” said Johnson.<br />

Throughout the course of the day, they<br />

visited Arlington National Cemetery, the<br />

Air Force Monument, the famed Iwo Jima<br />

sculpture, and the World War II Museum<br />

and Memorial. Eventually, they came to<br />

the Vietnam Veterans Memorial where<br />

those black granite walls loom large.<br />

“We all had friends who died in that<br />

war, who were severely wounded or<br />

maimed,” said Johnson.<br />

“A lot of us were wounded mentally,”<br />

added Kuno.<br />

After reflecting upon the sacrifices of<br />

their fallen friends, they took a moment to<br />

be thankful that were able to share in this<br />

experience.<br />

“We don’t really talk to each other about<br />

what we went through in Vietnam,” said<br />

Burns “but I know if I ever wanted to, they<br />

would be right there for me.”<br />

When their journey was over and they<br />

were heading back to the airport terminal,<br />

they saw a throng of cheering people bearing<br />

posters, cards and handmade quilts<br />

crafted just for the Honor Flight veterans.<br />

“It was an unexpected surprise,” said<br />

Johnson. “We never got that reception<br />

when we came back from Vietnam.”<br />

“We certainly didn’t,” said Kuno, referring<br />

to the protest movement that was taking<br />

place concurrently with the war.<br />

Burns recalled after coming home from<br />

the war, only to be met with the flying fists<br />

of a stranger at a bar.<br />

“He wanted to let me know that he did<br />

not appreciate me and wanted to start<br />

trouble,” he said. “So we had trouble.”<br />

He added that the warm reception that<br />

took place after their Honor Flight more<br />

than made up for that event in the 1970s.<br />

Now that they have experienced the<br />

Honor Flight together — which they recommend<br />

for every eligible veteran - they say<br />

they look forward to a quiet period of daily<br />

coffee meetings, card games and planning<br />

their next grand adventure.<br />

“It’s just in the beginning stages but<br />

we’re going to go to West Virginia and look<br />

for the Mothman,” said Johnson.<br />

They say whatever will happen there,<br />

will happen. But they’re excited that they<br />

get to do it together.

Government Focus<br />

Beulah Park agreement has city covering cost of JT medic<br />

By Dedra Cordle<br />

Staff Writer<br />

By Hannah Poling<br />

Staff Writer<br />

At a recent Pleasant Township meeting,<br />

the trustees approved a resolution to add<br />

an additional fee of $100 to funerals that<br />

run longer than their allotted time.<br />

An emergency unit has been ordered for<br />

the Jackson Township Fire Department.<br />

At the Oct. 1 meeting, the board of<br />

trustees unanimously approved a resolution<br />

to purchase a new medic unit as part<br />

of a planned replacement cycle. The medic,<br />

which will be manufactured locally by<br />

Horton, will be housed at Station 204 on<br />

Buckeye Parkway.<br />

According to Assistant Fire Chief<br />

Shawn Quincel, the department’s emergency<br />

vehicles are on a 10-year replacement<br />

cycle due to the tremendous amount<br />

of “wear and tear” that is done to the equipment<br />

while responding to emergencies.<br />

Fire Chief Randy Little added that the<br />

department makes approximately 10,000<br />

runs annually between the four fire stations.<br />

“Of those 10,000 runs, 7,300 of those are<br />

EMS runs,” he said. “And of that number,<br />

about 50 percent are transports.”<br />

He said what could help the lifecycle of<br />

the emergency vehicles in the future is a<br />

newfound proximity to hospitals.<br />

“Having two emergency hospitals located<br />

in Grove City will be beneficial.”<br />

The resolution that was passed marked<br />

the third time that the department has<br />

ordered new emergency vehicles within a<br />

year. In <strong>October</strong> of 2018, the township<br />

ordered a new fire engine for station 203 on<br />

London-Groveport Road and a new medic<br />

for Station 202 on Hoover Road. In March<br />

of <strong>2019</strong>, the township ordered a new medic<br />

to replace the one at Station 203. Unlike<br />

the aforementioned purchases, the township<br />

will not have to pay for the newly<br />

ordered medic.<br />

According to Robert Bausch from the<br />

road department, township employees are<br />

running into this issue a lot lately. He said<br />

he reviewed what other municipalities do<br />

in response to the issue in local cemeteries.<br />

An added charge is common.<br />

The resolution passed at the meeting is<br />

to add the fee to funerals that run longer<br />

According to Shane Farnsworth, township<br />

administrator, the city of Grove City<br />

will cover the cost. It is estimated at<br />

$350,000.<br />

“It is a part of our agreement with the<br />

city due to the development at Beulah<br />

Park,” he said.<br />

In June, the city signed off on a development<br />

and infrastructure agreement with<br />

Townsend Construction Company concerning<br />

the redevelopment of the Beulah Park<br />

property. Under the terms of the agreement,<br />

the 212-acre property sits in a community<br />

reinvestment area, thus making it<br />

eligible for a 15-year, 100 percent real<br />

property tax exemption. It will run simultaneously<br />

with a 30-year 100 percent tax<br />

increment financing exemption.<br />

During that discussion, Farnsworth<br />

spoke before the council about the burden<br />

additional homes will place on its fire<br />

than 3 p.m. Monday through Friday and<br />

longer than noon on Saturdays, Sundays<br />

and holidays.<br />

“I think it makes sense if we are paying<br />

department and requested financial assistance.<br />

The township later came to its own<br />

terms with the city regarding the Beulah<br />

Park property. One of those terms was that<br />

the city would purchase a new medic for<br />

the department in 2020 and 2025.<br />

Little said the medic is slated to arrive<br />

in the spring.<br />

In related news, the fire department<br />

announced at the Sept. 17 meeting that it<br />

would seek grant money to replace fire<br />

apparatuses. Farnsworth said one grant<br />

would be used to purchase self-contained<br />

breathing apparatus compressors for each<br />

of the fire stations. The second grant<br />

request was for diesel exhaust removal at<br />

the four fire stations. Farnsworth said the<br />

department will not hear whether they<br />

have received the grant until the end of the<br />

year.<br />

Pleasant Township trustees vote to impose late fee for longer than scheduled funerals<br />

to Firefighters Grant for $64,940.<br />

“These funds will be used to purchase all<br />

new fire hoses, nozzles and large appliances,”<br />

said Fire Chief Brian Taylor. “The<br />

total cost to the township will be $3,092.39.<br />

There will be some additional cost for some<br />

smaller appliances that were not covered<br />

within the scope of the grant.”

earlier this year, so much so that it was<br />

quickly snatched up by Amazon Studios for<br />

a staggering $14 million.<br />

While willing to take a chance on a<br />

small indie, Amazon struggled with the<br />

decision that all studios do regarding films<br />

without an established base: Do they roll it<br />

out slowly and hope word of mouth carries<br />

it far or do they go nationwide and hope it<br />

is not swallowed into the ether?<br />

Amazon chose the former, releasing the<br />

film in larger markets while sporadically<br />

advertising in the small ones. This, unfortunately,<br />

did not prove to be the best strategy<br />

as the film came into the smaller markets<br />

with the buzz of a solo bee in a vast<br />

garden.<br />

There is a high probability “Brittany<br />

Runs a Marathon” will be out of the theaters<br />

by the time this review comes to print<br />

despite the fact that it literally just<br />

arrived. And if by some chance it is still<br />

there, do yourself a favor and go see it at<br />

that very odd time. I don’t think you will<br />

regret it.<br />

Noted supporting actress Jillian Bell<br />

(“Workaholics”, “22 Jump Street”) plays<br />

the titular character, a close-to-30 something<br />

whose life has stalled. In the first few<br />

to survive her dead-end job, cruising the<br />

clubs for the best drinks and available<br />

men, becoming sadder by the moment<br />

while looking at her social media feed.<br />

Wanting to address some slight concerns<br />

with her concentration, Brittany<br />

schedules an appointment with a highly<br />

rated but cheap doctor in hopes of being<br />

prescribed Adderall to cure her ailments.<br />

What he gives her instead is advice to lose<br />

weight. Feeling affronted by his determination<br />

that she “shed the weight of a medium<br />

sized working dog” off her body, she<br />

resolves to push the recommendation to the<br />

back of her mind.<br />

At first, her method of ignoring the issue<br />

seems to work (another long-held pattern,<br />

we learn) but then she hits a very low point<br />

in her life after a soul-crushing sexual<br />

encounter and decides to make a true<br />

change for the betterment of her life.<br />

While “Brittany Runs a Marathon” may<br />

seem like one of those awful makeover<br />

films where lives are magically transformed<br />

once pounds are shed and fashionable<br />

clothes are purchased, the meaning<br />

within is a little deeper and closer to reality.<br />

This film, written and directed by Paul<br />

Downs Coliazzo, is actually based on one of<br />

his best friends and the utmost care is<br />

shown with these sensitive subjects.<br />

Brittany and her weight is not played for<br />

laughs, nor is her emotional state/mental<br />

health as one obsession (food for comfort)<br />

Though some<br />

serious topics are<br />

there are plenty of<br />

laughs and relatable<br />

scenarios to go around. While the supporting<br />

cast of Michaela Watkins (the nosey<br />

neighbor), Micha Stock (the beginner jogger)<br />

and Utkarsh Ambudkar (the loafing<br />

love interest) is great, it is Bell and her performance<br />

that really drives this film. In<br />

one of her first leading roles, Bell is<br />

immensely engaging, playing Brittany<br />

with warmth and joy just as easily as she<br />

does with the uglier aspects of her personality<br />

and insecurities. She isn’t always the<br />

role model those making life changes are<br />

perceived (or asked) to be, but she is entertaining,<br />

maddening, and real; all of which<br />

are portrayed deftly by Bell. In “Brittany<br />

Runs a Marathon,” she is a wonder to<br />

watch and I hope this film can propel her<br />

into more starring roles.<br />

Opinion Page<br />

There is science behind our obsession with pumpkin<br />

Life Moments<br />

Christine Bryant<br />

Every year around this time, my obsession<br />

begins.<br />

All things pumpkin.<br />

Pumpkin cookies, pumpkin butter,<br />

pumpkin candles, pumpkin donuts, pumpkin<br />

pie Blizzards - I love it all.<br />

Frankly, as we seem to be stuck in our<br />

second summer and the leaves are still a<br />

few weeks away from transforming into a<br />

palette of warm reds, browns and oranges,<br />

I could use some pumpkin to get me in the<br />

fall spirit.<br />

In fact, as I write this, I’m drinking a<br />

pumpkin spice latte.<br />

If you’re like me, you appreciate the<br />

aroma and feeling you get when cinnamon,<br />

nutmeg and clove attack your scent and<br />

taste receptors. These sweet, warm spices<br />

instantly sweep you away, giving you the<br />

same comforts of hearing leaves rustling in<br />

the wind and crunching under your feet on<br />

a crisp, cool morning.<br />

And here’s why you shouldn’t apologize<br />

for your obsession with pumpkin.<br />

It’s science.<br />

You heard that right. Studies show that<br />

we’re conditioned from a very early age to<br />

love fall and everything associated with it.<br />

Think about it. As a child, what are<br />

some of our fondest memories? For some,<br />

it’s going back to school and seeing friends<br />

again. For others, it’s trekking through the<br />

neighborhood with a plastic orange pumpkin<br />

or pillow case from your bedroom full of<br />

candy. Or, gathering around the dinner<br />

table that’s stacked with comfort foods for<br />

a Thanksgiving feast, followed by an afternoon<br />

of football.<br />

We associate these memories with<br />

something we love and enjoy, and therefore<br />

tie these memories to a specific season.<br />

Even for adults, it marks a new beginning<br />

for many. As summer comes to an end,<br />

time turns into a clean slate. In fact, a<br />

study published in the Journal of<br />

Personality and Social Psychology found<br />

there is a relationship between time and<br />

motivation, and that seasons can serve as<br />

temporal landmarks that structure our<br />

perception of time.<br />

There’s also the fact that many establishments<br />

only offer special flavors associated<br />

with a certain season (think peppermint<br />

in the winter, or peach in the summer).<br />

This has both economic and psychological<br />

implications and may partially<br />

explain why we’re especially drawn to a<br />

certain flavor at a specific time of the year.<br />

As it turns out, pumpkins also hold historical<br />

significance in America. According<br />

to the History Channel, pumpkins have<br />

been grown in North America for 5,000<br />

years.<br />

The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation<br />

adds that pumpkins were cultivated independently<br />

by indigenous people in North<br />

America and South America, and that<br />

researchers have found seeds at archaeological<br />

sites dating back more than 6,000<br />

years.<br />

Pumpkins also helped sustain colonists<br />

after the crops they brought with them<br />

from Europe didn’t survive.<br />

And while the most popular pumpkins<br />

today are grown to be porch decor rather<br />

than a staple in our diets, pumpkins are<br />

still a $5-billion-a-year industry, according<br />

to the foundation.<br />

Thanks to our pumpkin-flavored staples<br />

that appear on store shelves each year in<br />

September, even thousands of years later<br />

we still know how to enjoy pumpkin, even<br />

when it doesn’t make sense (there’s recipes<br />

out there for dishes like pumpkin chili and<br />

pumpkin burgers).<br />

So next time you feel a little guilty about<br />
