City, township<br />

talk police service<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Madison Township Police Chief Gary York and Madison<br />

Township Administrator Susan Brobst helped clear the air at the<br />

Oct. 21 Canal Winchester City Council meeting regarding the status<br />

of services provided by township law enforcement.<br />

At the invitation of council and in association with a previous<br />

discussion regarding a bigger bang for taxpayer’s bucks, York–<br />

who became chief in Feb. 2018–said he’s told his officers to have<br />

greater visibility throughout Canal Winchester.<br />

The city contracts with the Fairfield County Sheriff’s Office for<br />

primary service, with a sub-station housed in the basement of<br />

Town Hall. However, Fairfield County and Franklin County<br />

(which dispatches the township) are on different systems, thus<br />

creating communication issues.<br />

“We don’t control the formatting of Franklin County,” said<br />

York. “My vision is for our officers to carry an extra radio to monitor<br />

Fairfield County.”<br />

According to a Fairfield County deputy attending the evening<br />

meeting, there is now a memorandum of understanding in regard<br />

to radio communication between the two counties.<br />

“I need to work with Franklin County EMA (Emergency<br />

Management Agency),” said York. “They’re aware of the communications<br />

gap we have here.”<br />

While Madison Township has always had authority to issue<br />

citations in Canal Winchester, those tickets go to Franklin<br />

County. The city and the township are now working on an agreement<br />

changing the situation where township citations go through<br />

the Canal Winchester mayor’s court process.<br />

“It’s going to take some time,” said Brobst. “There is no language<br />

drafted because neither side has any official language. Our<br />

assumption was the county prosecutor was working on this.”<br />

Brobst said they discovered the prosecutor was not working on<br />

any documentation. The township and city must first come to the<br />

county with agreements and asked the county to draft official language<br />

sealing the agreement.<br />

“We just need something official to have an actual ordinance on<br />

your part and then a resolution on our part. The township has to<br />

work through the county prosecutor. You have to work through<br />

Gene (Hollins, city<br />

law director),” said<br />

Brobst.<br />

Hollins said the<br />

main purpose of the<br />

agreement between<br />

the city and township,<br />

which does not<br />

address the radio<br />

issue, is for officers<br />

to write charges<br />

under city code in<br />

order to go to<br />

mayor’s court.<br />

Veterans Day in CW<br />

Halloween fun!<br />

CW trick-or-treat<br />

and Halloween party<br />

Trick-or-treat in Canal Winchester<br />

will be on Oct. 31 from 5:30-7:30 p.m.<br />

The VFW Post 10523 Halloween party<br />

starts at 7:30 p.m. at the Frances Steube<br />

Community Center at 22 S. Trine St.<br />

Canal Winchester Human Services will<br />

help sponsor entertainment for the<br />

evening.<br />

Trick-or-Treat will be held rain or<br />

shine. Please use discretion when allowing<br />

children to participate.<br />

POLICE<br />

Continued from page 1<br />

“The amount (of revenue) is minimal,”<br />

said Hollins, “but it allows us to have control<br />

and a little more say about what happens<br />

with the charges.”<br />

Brobst said there are “very, very” few<br />

townships in Ohio that have two cities<br />

within their boundaries and nothing similar<br />

within Franklin County. Madison<br />

Township covers both Canal Winchester<br />

and Groveport.<br />

York said, while a similar situation<br />

exists in Groveport–which operates its<br />

own police department–there is no formalized<br />

agreement between the two entities,<br />

but the process works “seamlessly.” He<br />

trick-or-treat<br />

Oct. 31 from 5:30-7 p.m.<br />

•Obetz -<br />

Oct. 31 from 5:30-7:30 p.m.<br />

called the Canal Winchester situation<br />

unique, but felt there is an easy fix.<br />

“If we write a citation here, why shouldn’t<br />

it be heard here in mayor’s court,” said<br />

York, whose department operates on a<br />

budget of approximately $3.4 million. “We<br />

have to sit down and talk about how to<br />

make it work in Canal Winchester. At the<br />

end of the day, we’re here to provide safety<br />

and it doesn’t matter what the color is of<br />

the uniform.”<br />

Hollins said he could have a resolution<br />

ready for consideration in time for a<br />

November council meeting.<br />

The city of Canal Winchester, with<br />

Canal Winchester Senior Citizens, Inc. and<br />

VFW Post 10523, will host a Veterans Day<br />

celebration on Nov. 9. The public is invited<br />

to join veterans, local leaders, and distinguished<br />

guests for this patriotic event set<br />

in historic downtown Canal Winchester.<br />

Pancake breakfast for veterans<br />

A complementary pancake breakfast for<br />

veterans and their families will be held<br />

from 8:30-10 a.m. at the Frances Steube<br />

Community Center, 22 S. Trine St. The<br />

breakfast will be served by volunteers<br />

headed by Canal Winchester Senior<br />

Citizens club members, with food arrangements<br />

by the family of the late Fred<br />

Bivens, U.S. Air Force veteran and longtime<br />

club member. Other breakfast volunteers<br />

will include youth from Canal<br />

Winchester’s Boy Scout Troop 103 and Girl<br />

Scout Troop 2053.<br />

Veterans March and Ceremony<br />

The Veterans March begins at 10 a.m.<br />

at the Frances Steube Community<br />

Center’s 22 S. Trine St. and travels west<br />

down East Waterloo Street, turning at<br />

South High Street to end at Stradley Place<br />

(located next to Canal Winchester<br />

Municipal Office Building at 36 S. High<br />

St.). A traditional Veterans Day ceremony<br />

will be held at Stradley Place immediately<br />

following the Veterans March.<br />

Marching veterans will be joined by military<br />

vehicles provided by Motts Military<br />

Museum. The ceremony includes remarks<br />

from Canal Winchester Mayor Mike Ebert<br />

and VFW Post 10523 Commander Rick<br />

Williams, as well as a patriotic keynote<br />

<strong>Messenger</strong> holiday publication schedule<br />

Natural gas aggregation contract<br />

Madison Township’s current natural<br />

gas aggregation is up at the end of<br />

November <strong>2019</strong>. Consultant Scott<br />

Belcastro from Trebel has been monitoring<br />

rates as they hit an all-time low the end of<br />

August, then started rising slightly in<br />

September.<br />

Belcastro shared information with the<br />

Madison Township trustees on a new contract,<br />

which allowed the township to lock<br />

in a fixed rate for 24 months, beginning<br />

Dec. 1, <strong>2019</strong>. The new rate is $.3749/Ccf<br />

and will remain with Volunteer Energy<br />

Services of Ohio.<br />

According to the Madison Township<br />

trustees, the current contract is a fixed<br />

adder of $.01281 plus the NYMEX price<br />

(which could vary each month). At the time<br />

we secured our Dec. 1, 2017 contract the<br />

price was $.4241/Ccf.<br />

There is no cost to join, no switching<br />

fees and budget billing is available by calling<br />

Columbia Gas at 1-800-344-4077.<br />

Information will be sent to residents in<br />

late <strong>October</strong> and they will have two weeks<br />

to opt-out of the program, as with previous<br />

contracts. To participate in the program,<br />

nothing needs to be done by the resident.<br />

A follow-up postcard/letter will be sent by<br />

Columbia Gas which notifies the customer<br />

they will be switched (to the new program).<br />

This is a “second chance,” just in case they<br />

didn’t want to participate in the new program.<br />

This step helps prevent door-to-door<br />

and phone solicitors from switching<br />

accounts without authorization of the resident.<br />

Specific questions may be directed to<br />

Trebel LLC at 1-877-861-2772.<br />

print publication and delivery dates for the<br />

remainder of <strong>2019</strong> will be: Nov. 17, Dec. 1,<br />

and Dec. 15. After that, print publication<br />

will resume every other week following the<br />

holidays on Jan. 12.<br />

CW Middle School students dig gardening<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Green thumbs are growing at Canal<br />

Winchester Middle School.<br />

The school is working with a Battelle<br />

STEM Ohio design challenge promoting<br />

teamwork in designing a solution for food<br />

security.<br />

Eighth grade math teacher Sheree Daily<br />

and science teacher Pat Mariscal reported<br />

on the innovative curriculum project, first<br />

conducted during the 2018-19 school year,<br />

at the Canal Winchester Board of<br />

Education’s Oct. 21 meeting.<br />

“It all tied in with collaboration and critical<br />

thinking,” said Mariscal. “We started<br />

Township police officer investigation update<br />

In a press release dated Oct. 16,<br />

Madison Township Administrator Susan<br />

Brobst stated, “On Sept. 12, (Madison<br />

Township Police) Officer Matthew D.<br />

Kidwell was given notice of departmental<br />

charges of misconduct. The charges<br />

against Officer Kidwell were as follows and<br />

constituted misfeasance, malfeasance,<br />

nonfeasance, misconduct in the office, neglect<br />

of duty, gross immorality, incompetence,<br />

or failure to obey orders in the performance<br />

of official duties: 1) Violation of<br />

direct order related to administration<br />

leave; 2) Dishonesty in an internal investigation.<br />

In accordance with the township’s<br />

resolution 202-19, the township agrees to<br />

no longer pursue charges of misconduct<br />

against Matthew D. Kidwell and considers<br />

the investigation closed. The township<br />

makes no determination regarding any<br />

alleged misconduct by Mr. Kidwell. No further<br />

comment will be provided.”<br />

Franklin County drug overdose statistics<br />

The Franklin County Coroner’s Office<br />

released its preliminary overdose death<br />

statistics for the first six months of <strong>2019</strong>.<br />

From Jan. 1 to June 30, <strong>2019</strong> the<br />

Franklin County Coroner’s Office saw 254<br />

people die of overdoses. This is approximately<br />

an increase of 4 percent from the<br />

same period last year.<br />

Opiate-related deaths accounted for 85<br />

precent of overdose deaths for the first half<br />

of <strong>2019</strong>. Fueling this was fentanyl which<br />

accounted for 75 percent of all overdose<br />

deaths.<br />

Carfentanil-related overdose deaths<br />

accounted for 1.5 percent, similar to the<br />

same period in 2018. Heroin-related deaths<br />

accounted for 5 percent of all overdose<br />

deaths, a further decrease from the same<br />

period in 2018.<br />

Cocaine, methamphetamine and benzodiazepine-related<br />

overdose deaths:<br />

•Cocaine: 41 percent, an increase of 2<br />

percent from 2018;<br />

•Methamphetamines: 10 percent, no<br />

change from 2018; and<br />

•Benzodiazepines: 3 percent, a<br />

decrease of 3 percent from 2018.<br />

Looking at race and ethnicity, 28 percent<br />

of those who died of overdose deaths<br />

were African-American, an increase of 7<br />

percent from same period in 2018. The percentage<br />

of Hispanics who died of overdose<br />

deaths remained at 3 percent in <strong>2019</strong> as<br />

compared to 2018.<br />

The number of males dying of overdoses<br />

continues to be higher than that of females.<br />

The first half of <strong>2019</strong> saw 69 percent of<br />

males dying and 31 percent of females.<br />

This is a slight shift of about 2 percent<br />

more females.<br />

The top five zip codes in Franklin<br />

County with the highest number of overdose<br />

deaths for this period were: 43211,<br />

43223, 43229, 43207 and 43204.<br />

Run Your ‘Stache Off 5K run/walk in CW<br />

The sixth annual Run Your ‘Stache Off<br />

5K run/walk and 1K kid’s run will be held<br />

Nov. 19 at 9 a.m. at Canal Winchester<br />

High School, 300 Washington St. The event<br />

is a Fairfield County Sheriff’s Office<br />

fundraiser (that has raised more than<br />

$20,000 to date) with 100 percent of the<br />

funding benefitting St. Jude Children’s<br />

Research Hospital. The race is open to all<br />

who wish to participate regardless of age or<br />

mustache growing ability. There will be<br />

food, music, and Fairfield County Sheriff’s<br />

Office SWAT Team equipment and vehicles<br />

on site for viewing. Race day registration<br />

is from 8-9 a.m. with the 1K for kids<br />

them (the students) with a challenge and<br />

they worked together.”<br />

The challenge? Work as a team to imagine,<br />

design and prototype a solution to<br />

increase food security in your life, community<br />

or world. Students were grouped<br />

through their interests into 16-17 teams.<br />

In fall 2018, the student-led teams<br />

decided to grow edible plants in a pair of<br />

hydroponic water towers donated by Mount<br />

Carmel Hospital and the Franklin County<br />

Healthy Food Access Program.<br />

Through trial and error, students<br />

learned how to germinate, plant, pollinate<br />

and care for a variety of herbs and vegetables.<br />

In November, daily connection activities<br />

promoted interest in the design challenge<br />

while addressing middle school core<br />

values.<br />

“The kids had to check everything on a<br />

daily basis,” said Daily, “and while watching<br />

a movie, they ate vegetables they grew<br />

instead of popcorn. Through their gardening<br />

efforts, they worked on food security in<br />

the community.”<br />

Mariscal said students also learned<br />

about different cultures and what they<br />

grew in their gardens.<br />

In addition to the hydroponic gardens<br />

and as part of the design challenge, students<br />

researched different types of gardens<br />

such as rooftop, raised beds, and container<br />

CW leaf pick up<br />

The city of Canal Winchester will conduct<br />

curbside leaf collection through Dec.<br />

13. To avoid water backup in the event of<br />

rain, leaf piles must be placed behind the<br />

curb along the street.<br />

Leaf piles may contain leaves only, as<br />

sticks, grass trimmings and other yard<br />

waste can cause damage to leaf collection<br />

equipment. Regular yard waste will continue<br />

to be picked up by Waste<br />

Management during scheduled trash collection.<br />

<strong>Eastside</strong> Westside Southwest<br />

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

a 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.<br />

These sweet, warm spices instantly<br />

sweep you away, giving you the same comforts<br />

of hearing leaves rustling in the wind<br />

and crunching under your feet on a crisp,<br />

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 a<br />

Thanksgiving feast, followed by an afternoon<br />

of football.<br />

We associate these memories with something<br />

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

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 explain<br />

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

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<br />

brought with them<br />

from Europe didn’t<br />

survive.<br />

And while the<br />

most popular pumpkins<br />

today are grown<br />

to be porch decor<br />

rather than a staple<br />

in our diets, pumpkins<br />

year in September, even thousands of years<br />

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

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

recipes out there for dishes like pumpkin<br />

chili and pumpkin burgers).<br />

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

loving everything pumpkin or like you’re<br />

conforming to a cultural phenomenon, just<br />

remember, your pumpkin bliss is a little bit<br />

just plain goodness all in one.<br />

Same story, different decade<br />

Shortly after the off-beat “dramedy” “Shaun of the<br />

Dead” helped breathe new life into the zombie genre in<br />

2004, the general public put it back in the grave. Book<br />

and movie lovers had turned their attention to beautiful<br />

undead creatures and other dystopian worlds, leaving<br />

little room for reanimated corpses to occupy space.<br />

Those feelings changed, however, with the strong<br />

interest in AMC’s adaptation of Robert Kirkman’s popular<br />

comic, “The Walking Dead” as well as the release<br />

of a small-budget horror/comedy called “Zombieland.”<br />

When the latter debuted, movie and television studios<br />

held their breath as the box office opened in 2009,<br />

and then promptly exhaled fumes of cash as it reignited<br />

the fuse of interest in the living dead. In the following<br />

years, “Zombieland” has continued to retain and<br />

gain a massive following of fans due to its humor, creative<br />

use of gore, and an excellent cast of actors who<br />

made it such an enjoyable film to watch.<br />

A decade has passed since the premiere of both<br />

movie and television show and interest in the genre<br />

has once again waned. Despite the lack of public want,<br />

AMC continues to create spin-offs of “The Walking<br />

Dead” universe and “Zombieland” has been the recipient<br />

of the sequel treatment.<br />

Like many other films, “Zombieland” did not need a<br />

sequel. It ended with resolution, or as much as one can<br />

be found in an apocalyptic wasteland that is, and no<br />

further details were required or really desired. But<br />

because studios like to squeeze the life out of everything,<br />

here we are<br />

with yet another<br />

unnecessary followup<br />

to a perfectly great<br />

stand-alone.<br />

It takes place several years<br />

after the events in the first film<br />

and little has changed in the<br />

world. The dead are still being<br />

made, zombie kills of the week are<br />

still a thing and our little band of<br />

misfits are still together.<br />

Rather than roam the country<br />

looking for fellow survivors, the<br />

fearsome foursome have settled<br />

into the most unlikely of places —<br />

Franklin County Children’s Services levy on ballot<br />

By Christine Bryant<br />

Staff Writer<br />

A renewal levy on the Nov. 5 ballot will<br />

continue funding for a public agency that<br />

focuses on strengthening families in<br />

Franklin County.<br />

The current tax issue that provides<br />

funding to Franklin County Children<br />

Services will expire at the end of this year.<br />

If voters approve the 3.1-mill levy (Issue<br />

10) in November, they will extend funding<br />

to the agency for another 10 years.<br />

Expected to generate more than $85.6<br />

million annually, Issue 10 currently costs<br />

property owners in Franklin County about<br />

$84.50 per $100,000 in valuation. This<br />

amount would not change if voters approve<br />

the renewal.<br />

Deborah Armstrong, communications<br />

director for Franklin County Children<br />

Services, says nearly two-thirds of the<br />

agency’s annual budget of $212 million is<br />

funded through two levies. In 2014, voters<br />

approved a separate 1.9-mill, 10-year levy.<br />

The agency weighed placing a replacement<br />

levy on the ballet, which would have<br />

increased the amount property owners<br />

would pay, but chose instead to pursue a<br />

renewal levy because of adequate reserves<br />

in place that can help sustain the agency<br />

until the previous 1.9-mill levy expires.<br />

“We felt the agency had enough funding<br />

to sustain itself until the next levy comes<br />

up for renewal in five years,” she said.<br />

Each year, the agency serves more than<br />

30,000 abused and neglected children. In<br />

2018, it placed more than 2,300 in foster<br />

care and almost 2,000 with relatives. The<br />

remaining number of children are served<br />

within their own families, she said.<br />

“One of the things our agency focuses on<br />

is ensuring family-like settings for all children,<br />

particularly our older teens,”<br />

Armstrong said. “That includes working to<br />

recruit more foster homes for children,<br />

increasing the number of children who are<br />

able to be placed in kinship care with other<br />

family members, and being able to provide<br />

support to those family members.”<br />

Areas of focus include the opioid crisis<br />

and the impact of it on Franklin County<br />

families, as well as the effects trauma<br />

events have on children and families.<br />

“Many of our families and children are<br />

involved in traumatic situations, from<br />

domestic violence to mental illness to dealing<br />

with the stressors that come from<br />

poverty,” Armstrong said. “All of these are<br />

very stressful situations for families and<br />

children, so we’re learning more about that<br />

impact and trying to develop partnerships<br />

in the community define resources that can<br />

help address a lot of these issues we are<br />

seeing in families.”<br />

There are many ways the public can<br />

help, from volunteering with the campaign<br />

to granting a child’s holiday wish.<br />

“Our goal is to help educate the community<br />

about the different ways we protect<br />

children and all the different partnerships<br />

we rely on,” Armstrong said.<br />

•Franklin County Children Services is<br />

mandated by law to investigate cases of<br />

abuse, neglect and dependency. Every<br />

year, Franklin County Children Services<br />

helps more than 30,000 abused and neglected<br />

children. The agency offers services<br />

and support to families in crisis so their children<br />

can live in stable homes and become<br />

productive citizens.<br />

•The agency works at keeping children<br />

with their birth families but, when that is not<br />

possible, placement with relatives is the preferred<br />

choice. Kinship care has grown significantly<br />

in the last few years. In 2018, FCCS<br />

placed 1,941 children with kinship caregivers,<br />

an increase of 74 percent since 2014.<br />

•For those children who cannot return<br />

home, Children Services finds loving temporary<br />

or foster families to provide care.<br />

•When a permanent solution is needed, the<br />

agency is successful in securing caring and<br />

committed adoptive families. More than 800<br />

children were adopted in the last five years.<br />

•The opiate crisis has increased the<br />

placement costs of the agency. More children<br />

are in care and their needs, both physically<br />

and emotionally, are more intense.<br />

•Traumatic events and exposure to trauma<br />

disproportionally affect children in child<br />

welfare and require more intensive services.<br />

Children Services offers services, such<br />

as the Therapeutic Arts Program and mentoring<br />

that help children deal with trauma,<br />

grow stronger and provide healthy outlets<br />

for their emotions.<br />

•Up to 67 percent of the agency’s operating<br />

funds come from two 10-year levies—<br />

spread five years apart - a 1.9 mill levy that<br />

was renewed in 2014 and a 3.1 mill levy,<br />

passed in 2009 that expires at the end of<br />

<strong>2019</strong>. The other 33 percent of funds come<br />

mainly from state and federal dollars.<br />

•The 3.1 mill levy accounts for 42 percent<br />

of the agency’s income. Without continuation<br />

of this levy, vitally needed services<br />

to abused and neglected children will be<br />

impacted.<br />

•The Franklin County Commissioners<br />

have decided to place the 3.1 mil renewal<br />

levy on the November <strong>2019</strong> general election<br />

ballot. This levy will not increase taxes.<br />

It will also be a 10 year levy.<br />

Kerry Sherrill of Metro Parks Slate Run Living Historical Farm is shown here inserting sorghum stalks<br />

into the horse powered sorghum press. The press squeezes the sorghum juice from the stalk into a<br />

bucket. The juice is then boiled down to make sorghum molasses.<br />

How sweet it is!<br />

By Rick Palsgrove<br />

<strong>Eastside</strong> Editor<br />

Fall is a busy time down on the farm as various<br />

crops are harvested from the fields, including<br />

sorghum which is used to make molasses.<br />

Sorghum molasses is a thick, dark brown syrup<br />

used to sweeten many of the cakes, cookies, as well<br />

as baked beans made at Metro Parks Slate Run<br />

Living Historical Farm, which depicts life on an Ohio<br />

farm in the 1880s. The molasses can also be poured<br />

over biscuits or pancakes.<br />

“Sorghum is very sweet,” said Mike Huels of Slate<br />

Run Living Historical Farm. “It’s not as sweet as<br />

sugar cane, but it is still very sweet.”<br />

The sorghum is harvested in the fall when it is at<br />

its peak. Farm workers strip the leaves from the<br />

sorghum stalks and cut off the seed heads. The<br />

sorghum stalks are then fed by hand, one-by-one<br />

1880s style, into a horse powered press. As the press<br />

turns, it squeezes the juice from the stalks and the<br />

juice is then collected in a bucket. The flattened, dry<br />

stalks come out the other side of the press and are<br />

laid in a circle around the press to give Marcus, the<br />

farm’s horse, more traction as he walks around to<br />

power the press.<br />

Slate Run Living Historical Farm’s Dave Trotter<br />

said the farm uses a sorghum press from the late<br />

19th century made by the Chattanooga Plow<br />

Company.<br />

“It’s a simple machine that needs little maintenance,”<br />

said Trotter. “It has three gears - one big one<br />

on the main cylinder and two on the small cylinders.”<br />

After the sorghum juice is collected, it is poured<br />

into a large, flat evaporator pan and boiled over a<br />

fire. The thin, green juice slowly boils down into a<br />

thick, brown syrup. While it boils, the farmers use a<br />

hand held skimmer to remove the impurities that<br />

boil to the surface in the evaporator pan.<br />

Mike Huels of Metro Parks Slate Run Living<br />

Historical Farm skims off the impurities as the<br />

sorghum juice boils down into molasses in the<br />

evaporator pan.<br />

Huels said it can take around four hours to boil 10<br />

to 12 gallons of sorghum juice down to about two gallons<br />

of syrup. He said this is a much better yield than<br />

what can be obtained during maple sugar season in<br />

the late winter when it takes about 40 gallons of<br />

maple tree sap to get a gallon of maple sugar.<br />

Huels said our farming ancestors would use<br />

sorghum, maple sap, and honey from beehives to<br />

make their own sweeteners because refined sugar<br />

purchased from a store could be expensive.<br />

The process of making sorghum molasses takes a<br />

lot of work, but the tasty payoff is worth the labor.

Voters to decide on tax increase<br />

By Rick Palsgrove<br />

<strong>Eastside</strong> Editor<br />

Voters in Lithopolis will decide<br />

on a proposed 0.5 percent increase<br />

on the village income tax on Nov. 5.<br />

According to Lithopolis Mayor<br />

Joe Taylor, the village’s current<br />

income tax revenue collections are<br />

approximately $900,000 per year.<br />

“This is a replacement tax,” said<br />

Taylor. “If it doesn’t pass, it will<br />

reduce the budget by approximately<br />

$300,000. It’s not a levy, it’s<br />

income tax. It only effects working<br />

residents, retired residents aren’t<br />

taxed.”<br />

The additional funding raised by<br />

the proposed income tax increase<br />

would be used for public infrastructure,<br />

safety, and parks improvements<br />

and maintenance.<br />

Taylor said the funds would distributed<br />

as follows:<br />

•55 percent would be spent on<br />

street construction, maintenance<br />

and repair, estimated at $165,000<br />

yearly.<br />

•15 percent would be used for<br />

trucks, specifically a new snowplow<br />

truck to replace the village’s 14-<br />

year-old truck at a cost of $45,000<br />

yearly.<br />

•15 percent would go towards<br />

Alfalfa is a go-getter<br />

who needs lots of exercise<br />

and attention. He’s<br />

great with other dogs<br />

and just wants to play all<br />

day, so tennis balls and<br />

toys are a must. By the<br />

end of the day, he will<br />

cozy up and fall fast<br />

asleep. This sweet boy is<br />

awaiting is furever<br />

home. Come meet him today at the Franklin<br />

County Dog Shelter and fall head-over-paws.<br />

pets of the week<br />

These furry friends are available<br />

for adoption at local rescues and<br />

shelters.<br />

Continued from page 4<br />

In the ensuing aftermath, new survivors<br />

are found, advanced zombies are<br />

discovered, and the squabbling band must<br />

come together once more to find the rogue<br />

in their family.<br />

While there is plenty of humor found<br />

within, most stemming from Harrelson’s<br />

cheeky character and the introduction of<br />

two new “love interests”, there is little<br />

deviation from the plot in the original<br />

movie which makes the sequel feel redundant.<br />

Despite the lingering stench of staleness,<br />

it was nice to check back in with the<br />

quartet. Each of the actors continue to play<br />

their characters with aplomb and their<br />

delight to be inhabiting these oddball survivors<br />

reaches those in the audience. They<br />

have fun with the (albeit dated) material<br />

and we have fun as a result; not as much<br />

as they are having, but you can find some<br />

joy watching this film nonetheless.<br />

The city of Canal Winchester is accepting<br />

applications for its 2020 Transient<br />

The grant program is open to non-profits<br />

or private organizations located within<br />

the city of Canal Winchester to help fund<br />

Canal Winchester has levied a 6 percent<br />

transient occupancy tax (bed tax) that is<br />

imposed when lodging is furnished to transient<br />

guests by a hotel, motel or similar<br />

business. One half (3 percent) of this tax is<br />

contributed to Destination: Canal<br />

Winchester, the designated visitors and<br />

convention bureau for Canal Winchester.<br />

The second half of the tax is designated by<br />

Canal Winchester City Council to fund the<br />

annual Bed Tax Grant Program.<br />

Grant applications are competitively<br />

reviewed and awards are made to those<br />

projects meeting all requirements and the<br />

intent of the program. Grant applications<br />

are available on the city’s website and at<br />

the city of Canal Winchester’s municipal<br />

building, 36 S. High St., Canal Winchester,<br />

OH 43110. Completed applications must be<br />

submitted in person or by mail to the attention<br />

of the finance director at the above<br />

address no later than Nov. 30, <strong>2019</strong>. City<br />

council will make award determinations in<br />

early 2020 and all awards must be used<br />
