City enacts golf
By Andrea Cordle
“If they want to be legal and, on the
road, rules will have to be followed,” said
Grove City Councilman Jeff Davis.
Davis was talking about the city’s new
legislation on low-speed and under speed
vehicles, more commonly referred to as

On Oct. 28, more than 70 players on the Central Crossing High School football teams participated in a fabric cutting event for

Cutting cloth for cancer patients
By Dedra Cordle
As a wide receiver on the Central
Crossing High School varsity football
team, Anthony Lowe is used to running
patterns. As cornerbacks, Tye Bradley
and Jalen Coles are used to identifying
them. But the trio had to admit they were
out of their depth as they laid their eyes
on an entirely new one.
Draped over the table before them in
the school’s cafeteria was a festively
adorned pattern of fabric complete with
renderings of Pikachu, one of the more
popular Pokémon characters. To their
right were these things called rotary cutters
and fabric shears and to their left
were grid rulers to help them make the
perfect cut. Though the instructions
seemed basic enough — cut out rectangles
until the sheet of fabric is used — the
seniors were hesitant to begin.
“I have no idea what I am doing,” said
Coles. “I have never once cut fabric, or
even thought about cutting fabric, in my
“Me neither,” said Bradley.
“Not me,” said Lowe as his teammates
pulled the fabric tight so he could make a
cut. “But we’re going to try our best.”
All around them, the scene was the
same: teenage boys sitting around tables
with rotary cutters around their fingers,
bright cotton patterns before them and a
look of caution mixed with interest on
“It’s been fun to watch them do this,”
said Trevor White, head coach of the varsity
football team. “Sewing and cutting is
not traditionally our ball of wax.”
It was early in the football season last
year when White envisioned this scenario.
Well, maybe not this exact scenario
but something quite similar.
“I wanted to get them more involved in
volunteerism,” he said. “I always tell
them that it doesn’t matter what their
record is on the field, that what matters is
what they do off of it.”
At that time, he challenged them to
raise funds for breast cancer awareness —

“Most golf carts you see on the road are not legal,”
said Stephen Smith, law director. “This legislation
gives residents a path to make them legal.”
Smith said the legislation stems from people using
golf carts on public streets and on city bike paths. The
law director said people are not just using the carts to
drive down their residential street, they are using
them to run to the grocery store
or stop by a local park.

“The reality is, they are out
there, and we want to ensure
they are safe for the occupant as
well as the general public,” said
Under the approved ordinance,
the city would strictly
prohibit the low-speed vehicles
from main thoroughfares in
Grove City, such as Broadway,
Stringtown Road and London-
Groveport Road. The legislation
also requires that the golf cart
operator have a valid driver’s
license and proof of insurance.
If a golf cart driver wanted to
take the vehicle on a street with
a 35 mile per hour speed limit,
that cart would have to be
inspected by the Grove City
Division of Police or another law
enforcement agency. The cart
would have to be equipped with
safety features such as properly

lives of others.”
After some scheduling conflicts, the
school and the organization set up a date in
late October where yards of fabric would be
brought to school in order for the members
of the varsity, junior varsity and freshman
teams to become ‘volunteer angels.’
“That is what I call anyone who has a
hand in creating the masks and head wear
for those in need,” said Kathy Braidich,
founder of The Turban Project. “They are
true angels to me.”
Because a vast majority of the team
were novice art and crafters, they were
assigned to cut fabric which would be made
into surgical masks for men, women and

how much of an impact they are making on
the lives of others.
“It may not strike them at this moment
that what they are doing is important,” she
said, “but what they should know is they

who desperately needs it.”

lights, taillights and turn signals. The cart would also
need a windshield, a review mirror, seatbelts and a
front and rear license plate.
Smith said most of the golf carts on the roads today
do not meet these safety standards.
Even though council unanimously approved the legislation
to regulate low speed vehicles, some had concerns
about the new rules.
Councilman Roby Schottke said he is concerned
about how this legislation would impact the Pinnacle
community; an area built around a golf course. He said
residents there expect to use their golf carts on the
streets or bike paths to get to the golf course. He also
said some carts may not easily convert so that they follow
Smith argued that the golf carts are not legal now,
nor have they ever been under the Ohio revised code.
“The residents are not in a worse position now,” said
Smith. “Now, they have a way to make them legal.”
Davis said he would not have a problem with the
golf carts staying within the confines of a neighborhood,
where the speed limit is 25 miles per hour. He
did express concern with allowing the legal carts on
roads that allow for 35 miles per hour speed.
“Golf carts disrupt traffic. They do not go 35 miles
per hour,” said Davis.
Councilman Ted Berry agreed, saying golf carts
slow traffic and drivers cannot go around them as they
could with a bicycle.
“Driving a golf cart during rush hour traffic is not a
smart thing,” said Berry.
Though council approved the legislation as presented
by the city’s administration, council members could
revisit the issue to address the carts traveling on roads
with a 35 mile per hour speed limit.

Southwest Library asks
voters for renewal levy
By Christine Bryant
The November election may be just days
away, but Southwest Public Libraries is
already planning for next March when it
plans to put a 1-mill renewal levy on the
The current levy that it will replace,
which expires at the end of 2020, generates
$2.5 million annually and represents
approximately 40 percent of the library’s
budget, said Mark Shaw, director of
Southwest Public Libraries.
A renewal means property owners in
the communities the library system serves
would see no tax increase. Per $100,000
property valuation, homeowners would
continue paying $31.05 per year, or $2.58
per month, until the 10-year levy expires.
The library’s district includes four townships
in southwestern Franklin County:
Jackson Township (Grove City and
Urbancrest), Prairie Township (Lincoln
Village, Galloway and the Westland area),
Pleasant Township (Harrisburg and
Darbydale) and Franklin Township.
If approved, funds generated by the levy
would go toward the operation of the
library to pay for materials, building maintenance
and operations, as well as library

Chamber Singers “Celebrate”
Grove City Chamber Singers will present
their fall concert “Celebrate!” on
Sunday Nov. 17 at 3:30 pm at the Grove
City United Methodist Church, 2684
Columbus St. Presenting a variety of music
programs, Shaw said.
“We think renewal of the 1-mill levy
represents a great bargain for the communities
we serve, and gives them access to
millions of items through our partnership
with other libraries, access to meeting
rooms, access to quiet study space, access
to free internet and access to programming
for all ages,” he said.
Shaw says the library system’s board of
trustees opted for a straight renewal to
avoid increasing taxes on the district’s taxpayers.
If voters do not approve the 1-mill
levy renewal, Shaw says tough decisions
will lie ahead.
“Since the levy represents 40 percent of
the library’s budget, the loss of such a large
chunk of funding would mean deep and
damaging budget cuts,” he said. “But we
believe we have been good stewards of the
public’s money and that the community
will see that and vote to renew the levy.”
The Ohio Primary date in the spring is
set for March 17, 2020. Property owners
can determine how much they pay for the
current 1-mill library tax by going to
mator and entering their address. Because
it is a renewal, the annual amount will
remain the same if voters approve the

start of their 31st season. Special guests
will be the Reynoldsburg High School

Tax-Aide volunteers needed
The AARP Foundation Tax-Aide program,
which provides free tax preparation,
primarily for senior citizens, at the Grove
City Church of the Nazarene and many
other locations across the state is seeking
volunteer tax preparers for next year.
From Feb. 1 through April 15, 10 volunteers
prepared more than 600 federal and
state tax returns at the Grove City Church
of the Nazarene, saving clients an estimated
$120,000 in tax preparation fees.
Anyone who does his/her own taxes on a
commercially available program is an ideal
candidate for the volunteer opportunity.
Volunteers receive IRS-approved training.
They are asked to work at least one day a
week during the 10 to 11-week tax season.
For more information about volunteering,
contact William Evans at 614-885-
0938 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Those
interested may also visit the Ohio Tax-Aide

Trustees review location for burn lab
By Hannah Poling
The Columbus State Community College burn lab
was again addressed at the Oct. 22 Pleasant Township
The college has proposed moving the burn lab from
its current location on Alkire Road to behind the
Pleasant Township Fire Department on Norton Road.
Jack McCoy, the coordinator for the school’s southwest
campus at Bolton Field, met with Robert Bausch
of the road department on to come up with a potential
location to place the lab. They discussed the possibility
of placing the lab behind the township’s salt barn.
“We still have a number of hurdles to overcome with
the engineers before coming back before the board for
consideration,” said Fire Chief Brian Taylor.
The South-Western City Schools District is also considering
adopting a new high school program for
seniors to begin fire training. It was mentioned that if
South-Western is going to use the lab for a class, it
would make more sense to put the building on their
land since they have more space than the fire department.
The thought is that if the district would be using
it for their students, they would be using the building
more frequently than the fire department.
An option of placing the burn lab on the Pleasant
View Middle School property was also discussed.
“I think that would ease the concerns of the residents
and there’s not really any homes nearby that
would be affected by the smoke. That might be a good
location,” said Taylor.
Nothing has been decided at this time. Taylor
relayed he would need to speak to McCoy about the
possibilities before a determination could be made.
In other news, a short ceremony was recently held
at the Pleasant Township Fire Department to welcome
a new fire engine.
The ceremony included remarks from Taylor and a
short service from Chaplain Larry Baker who blessed
the truck as well as the members of the fire department.
Members of the fire department then conducted
a wet-down ceremony washing the new truck with
water from the old truck and pushed the truck into the
bay. A few hours after the truck was placed into service
the new engine took its first run.

Children Services levy on the ballot
By Christine Bryant
A renewal levy on the Nov. 5 ballot will
continue funding for a public agency that
focuses on strengthening families in
The current tax issue that provides
funding to Franklin County Children
Services will expire at the end of this year.
If voters approve the 3.1-mill levy (Issue
10) in November, they will extend funding
to the agency for another 10 years.
Expected to generate more than $85.6
million annually, Issue 10 currently costs
property owners in Franklin County about
$84.50 per $100,000 in valuation. This
amount would not change if voters approve
Deborrha Armstrong, communications
director for Franklin County Children
Services, says nearly two-thirds of the
agency’s annual budget of $212 million is
funded through two levies. In 2014, voters
approved a separate 1.9-mill, 10-year levy.
Each year, the agency serves more than
30,000 abused and neglected children. In
2018, it placed more than 2,300 in foster
care and almost 2,000 with relatives. The
remaining number of children are served
within their own families, she said.
Areas of focus have included the opioid
crisis and the impact of it on Franklin
County families, as well as the effects trauma
events have on children and families.

Children Services renewal levy, go to committee4children.com.

One nutty day at Finland
When Finland Elementary School held its Student of the Month celebration on Oct.
25, they were visited by the famed Ohio State University mascot Brutus Buckeye. It
was a rare guest appearance at the monthly assembly, said Principal Brittney
McDaniel, but a welcome one as Brutus brought smiles and joy to the entire school.

The Reel Deal
There I was,
perched on the edge
of my seat as the
newly released horror
neared its final act. I
had been that way
for a while by then, coiling tighter and
ready to spring apart. What had brought
me to that state was not a full-bodied
engagement of the viewing experience but
rather an overwhelming desire to escape
this nightmare of a movie.
As someone who loves the horror genre,
I have seen my fair share of unremarkable
films and I have to say that “Countdown” is
right up there with the worst of them.
Despite its semi-interesting premise, there
is a whole lotta nothing going on in this
film, so much so that it was hard to find
even a sliver of entertainment value.
It follows a young nurse named Quinn
(Elizabeth Lail) who befriends a patient
slated for surgery. She assures the nervous
teen that he is in good hands at the hospital
but he insists he is going to die during
the operation. After some prompting, he
tells her he learned the date of his death
through an app called Countdown and only
has hours to live.
Thinking him silly for believing such a
thing, she once again reassures him that
everything will be OK and then promptly
tells her coworkers about the app so they
can download it for themselves. Turns out
she drew the short end of the app stick as
she only has days whereas they have
As the hours pass, Quinn slowly starts
to become more freaked out and tries to
delete the app from her phone. This makes
the app unhappy and it starts to give frequent
prompts of when she is going to die.
Thinking she can outsmart the app, she
gets a new phone but it installs itself onto
her new device. Then she starts seeing
shadowy figures that become more aggressive
as the clock counts down.
A whole lotta nothing in “Countdown”
With the help of a hot stranger with
similar app problems, a surly younger sister
with similar app problems and a hip
priest with inexplicable knowledge of similar
app problems, the quartet set out to
cheat death by technological advancement.
There were only a few ways the resolution
of the film could go — human app creator
who stalks in real life rather than data
mines and sells your information for profit
for life versus curses and demons — and you
can be assured it does not travel the less
worn route. Had writer/director Justin Dec
decided to take the horror path less travelled
perhaps it would have been a smidge
more entertaining. Alas, it does not happen
and we are left with a paint-by-the-numbers
spectral hauntings that make little
sense upon minor reflection.
The advancing technological world is
ripe for the picking in the horror genre, and
this cursed app is just the latest example of
them tapping into the growing sense of
unease. Due to a lack of originality,
“Countdown” doesn’t truly work in that
November 3, 2019 -SOUTHWEST MESSENGER - PAGE 11
sense though it does try to skim the surface
from time to time. It never lingers long in
those depths, however, preferring to go for
the obvious jump scares instead of allowing
the brief commentary on selling aspects of
ourselves for popular trends to sink in.

Pets of the week
Melody came to the
county shelter after a
divorce broke up her
family. She’s been at
the shelter since
August and is ready
to find her forever
home. She should
probably be the only
dog in the home as
she can be reactive
to other dogs and has been muzzled in playgroup.
Do you have the right home for
Melody? She is available at the Franklin
County Dog Shelter.
FYI: 614-525-3647 or www.franklincountydogs.com
Agent J can be a little
timid at first but
once you pet him, he
warms up super fast.
And if you have a
laser light he forgets
all worries. He loves
the laser light and
will even run on the
cat exercise wheel
when you combine it
with a laser light. This
fella can run fast. Let him show you how sweet
(and fast) he is. Come meet him at the Colony
Cats cage-free Adoption Center, 2740
Festival Lane in Dublin.
These furry friends are available
for adoption at local
rescues and shelters
Wink and Blink -
Wink, a one-eyed, 6-
month-old boy was a
rescued stray along
with his sister, Blink.
Blink wasn’t as fortunate
as Wink as she
lost both of her eyes.
Wink and Blink came
to rescue with severe
eye infections when
taken from the streets. But they’re the lucky
ones as their other siblings didn’t survive.
Come meet these adorable siblings at the
Colony Cats adoption center.
Mamas is still at the
shelter. She is a very
sweet girl who loves
to snuggle. She loves
everyone she meets
and likes to play
fetch. Mamas must
be the only pet in the
household as she is
the Queen Bee and
does not like to share
attention. Come meet her at the Franklin
County Dog Shelter.
