By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Canal Winchester and Madison Township are moving forward<br />

in formalizing an agreement sending citations issued by township<br />

law enforcement within the city to the local mayor’s court.<br />

Canal Winchester City Council approved a resolution of<br />

intent with the township during its Nov. 4 council meeting.<br />

Under the resolution, the city expressed its desire to address<br />

the citations under its mayor’s court and acknowledged the<br />

township police department “requires express consent from<br />

Canal Winchester to begin the legal process to obtain authority”<br />

by Franklin County.<br />

On Nov. 12, the Madison Township trustees approved similar<br />

legislation authorizing the prosecutor to draft documentation<br />

with the city.<br />

“Our officers are visible and writing tickets in that area,” said<br />

Madison Township Police Chief Gary York. “This would be another<br />

step in creating a good working situation there.”<br />

Canal Winchester Service Director Matt Peoples said it is now<br />

up to the county prosecutor’s office to draft official documentation<br />

for both entities finalizing the agreement between the city and<br />

township.<br />

Madison Township currently has authority to issue citations<br />

in Canal Winchester, however, under the Ohio Revised Code,<br />

township tickets currently go to Franklin County for processing<br />

instead of the city’s mayor’s court.<br />

“Canal Winchester officials were the ones that initiated this,”<br />

York said after interest was sparked when a city official saw a<br />

township officer issuing a traffic citation in city limits.<br />

While under discussion for many months–including the lead<br />

topic during a Sept. 29 Canal Winchester City Council committee<br />

of the whole meeting–on Oct. 21, York and Madison Township<br />

Administrator Susan Brobst helped clear the air regarding the<br />

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

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

any documentation until the township and city came to them<br />

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

sealing the agreement.<br />

“It (resolution of intent) has gone through review by Madison<br />

Township and Gene Hollins (Canal Win-chester law director),”<br />

said Peoples. “This is the official beginning of the process.”<br />

Peoples said he had no idea how long the prosecutor’s office<br />

would take to draft the language before returning it to the city for<br />

final approval.<br />

Ebert wins three-way race for mayor<br />

By Rick Palsgrove<br />

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

The Nov. 5 election resulted in Canal Winchester<br />

Mayor Mike Ebert being re-elected and a tight race for<br />

Madison Township trustee.<br />

According to Franklin County Board of Elections<br />

Public Information Officer Aaron Sellers, unofficial<br />

totals show 183,329 — 22.96 percent of those registered<br />

in Franklin County - voting in the Nov. 5 election. The<br />

board of elections must begin the official canvass of the<br />

ballots no later than Nov. 20 and certify vote totals by<br />

Nov. 26.<br />

The unofficial local results of the Nov. 5 election,<br />

according to the Franklin County Board of Elections<br />

and the Fairfield County Board of Elections are<br />

(*denotes winners)<br />

Canal Winchester<br />

Canal Winchester mayor: *Mike Ebert, 948 (43 percent),<br />

Bruce Jarvis, 868 (40 percent), Doug Snyder, 372<br />

(17 percent).<br />

“I’m looking forward to another exciting four years<br />

as mayor of my hometown Canal Winchester,” said<br />

Ebert. “As I stated in my campaign, ‘I have unfinished<br />

business to get done.’ In my opinion, if a mayor or manager<br />

ever gets done with his work, then there is no further<br />

need. That should apply to all businesses both<br />

government and private. I applied that same thought<br />

process when I worked in sales. If my sales stopped,<br />

then I was no longer needed. My staff and I continually<br />

work to make Canal Winchester a better place to live,<br />

work and play and I think the results seen at the polls<br />

are a reflection of that effort. For me the election went<br />

as I planned: don’t attack, only state the facts and<br />

truths. I stuck to that and it paid off. Thanks Canal<br />

Winchester for another four years.”<br />

Natural gas aggregation<br />

Madison Township’s current natural<br />

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

<strong>November</strong> <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 in September.<br />

Belcastro shared information with<br />

Madison Township on a new contract,<br />

which allowed the township to lock in a<br />

fixed rate for 24 months, beginning Dec. 1,<br />

<strong>2019</strong>. The new rate is $.3749/Ccf and will<br />

remain with Volunteer Energy Services of<br />

Ohio. 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<br />

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

the price was $.4241/Ccf. There is no cost<br />

to join, no switching fees and budget billing<br />

is available by calling Columbia Gas at 1-<br />

800-344-4077. Information will be sent to<br />

residents and they will have two weeks to<br />

opt-out of the program. To participate in<br />

the program, nothing needs to be done by<br />

the resident. A follow-up postcard/letter<br />

will be sent by Columbia Gas which notifies<br />

the customer they will be switched (to<br />

the new program). This step helps prevent<br />

door-to-door and phone solicitors from<br />

switching accounts without authorization<br />

of the resident.<br />

Jarvis said, “I was expecting a fairly<br />

competitive race but it was hard to predict<br />

anything with three candidates in the mix.<br />

The numbers didn’t fall my way this time,<br />

but I was pleased with the process. One<br />

takeaway from all this is that the majority<br />

of voters apparently do want to see some<br />

changes. Hopefully, that message is not<br />

lost and is taken to heart.”<br />

Madison Township puts motor vehicle tax on hold<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Southeast Editor<br />

With a new trustee joining the board in<br />

2020, the Madison Township trustees are<br />

postponing final action on a $5 permissive<br />

motor vehicle tax until next year.<br />

During their Nov. 12 meeting, the<br />

trustees unanimously agreed to hold off a<br />

decision until the first meeting in January<br />

when Michele Reynolds takes her seat on<br />

the board after unseating incumbent John<br />

Kershner in the recent election.<br />

“I think it’s only proper since we’ll have<br />

a new board member,” said Trustee Ed<br />

Dildine.<br />

If approved in 2020, car owners would<br />

start paying the tax when they buy new<br />

license plates or renew old ones as early as<br />

next fall. The township would need to take<br />

action by July.<br />

Estimates by the state project future<br />

revenue at $80,000 for the township’s roads<br />

and bridges fund. The permissive motor<br />

vehicle tax only impacts vehicle owners<br />

who live in the unincorporated areas of the<br />

township.<br />

Marwick Civic Association<br />

Marwick Addition homeowner Linda<br />

Poynter said residents are working to bring<br />

the local civic association back in action.<br />

“It (the association) never really<br />

stopped, but as far as being active again, it<br />

started back up within the last couple of<br />

months,” said Poynter, who reported 125<br />

homes are within the Marwick area.<br />

Veterans exhibit now open<br />

Franklin County veterans who have<br />

served and died during our nation’s wars<br />

now have a special exhibit dedicated in<br />

their honor which lists the veterans by<br />

name, thanks to an exhibit commissioned<br />

by the Franklin County Board of<br />

Commissioners.<br />

The exhibit includes a collection of historic<br />

plaques that list the fallen veterans<br />

by name, as far back as the Revolutionary<br />

War. The plaques had been created<br />

throughout the 1900s and had started to<br />

show the effects of decades on display.<br />

The Franklin County commissioners<br />

had the plaques restored and had an exhibit<br />

custom built so these historic treasures<br />

could be revered by residents once again<br />

for years to come. A dedication took place<br />

in Memorial Hall, which is where most of<br />

the plaques were initially displayed.<br />

“These plaques demonstrate the rich<br />

history of Franklin County veterans who<br />

have served this great nation from its<br />

founding,” said Marilyn Brown, president<br />

of the board of commissioners. “This<br />

memorial is now in its rightful home and in<br />

a building that was solely dedicated to veterans.”<br />

The idea for Memorial Hall was conceived<br />

after the Civil War, but the building<br />

would not be dedicated until 1906. It was<br />

designed as a memorial and meeting place<br />

for war veterans, which also gave them a<br />

space to host conventions and civic gatherings.<br />

It hosted many historic events since<br />

then including welcoming troops home<br />

Hopeful Hearts<br />

Hopeful Hearts Free Children’s<br />

Clothing Ministry - a free baby clothing<br />

distribution for sizes infant to 5T, as well<br />

as shoes, blankets, bibs, small toys and<br />

other baby needs - is open the third<br />

Saturday of the month from 10 a.m. to<br />

noon at Hope United Methodist Church, 83<br />

E. Columbus St. in Canal Winchester.<br />

Everyone is welcome to come in and shop<br />

for your free children’s summer clothing<br />

needs in sizes Infant to 5T. Everything is<br />

from World War I and was visited by several<br />

U.S. Presidents.<br />

As the building changed over the<br />

decades, the plaques were moved around<br />

and spent many years in the former<br />

Veterans Memorial, which was formerly at<br />

the site of the National Veterans Memorial<br />

and Museum.<br />

“The idea to restore and display these<br />

plaques on permanent display was an idea<br />

suggested by some local residents and we<br />

are glad they did,” said commissioner John<br />

O’Grady. “We were able with input from<br />

local veterans to design a patriotic exhibit<br />

that reveres and leaves a lasting impression<br />

for all those who see it. It is important<br />

that we always remember what these veterans<br />

have done for us all.”<br />

Several other similar plaques were<br />

placed in the National Veterans Museum<br />

and Memorial, giving them more exposure<br />

to visitors from across the country.<br />

The Memorial Hall exhibit includes two<br />

interactive displays that give a modern<br />

touch for these historic treasurers.<br />

“We know there is no way to repay the<br />

debt these men and women paid for all of<br />

us. However, with this exhibit we hope this<br />

is a way for Franklin County veterans to<br />

always be remembered and their sacrifice<br />

honored,” said commissioner Kevin Boyce.<br />

Anyone wanting to see the exhibit can<br />

visit Memorial Hall, 280 E. Broad St., in<br />

Columbus during business hours, primarily<br />

between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.<br />

free and all are welcome. Drop off donated<br />

items at the church. Clothing for all seasons<br />

is needed. Call (614) 837-7548.<br />

CW Library Branch<br />

The Canal Winchester Branch of the<br />

Columbus Metropolitan Library, 115<br />

Franklin St. (located in the rear portion of<br />

the former school at 100 Washington St.),<br />

is open Monday through Thursday from<br />

noon to 7 p.m. and Friday and Saturday<br />

from noon to 6 p.m.<br />

Two years ago, Poynter held a community<br />

potluck in her yard attended by 62 people.<br />

This year, she said 105 people showed<br />

up.<br />

“We got people together and now people<br />

are really getting interested again,” said<br />

Poynter, who asked the trustees for information<br />

on financial reports and proposed<br />

projects for the community.<br />

“We’re looking for more information and<br />

input,” said Poynter. “It would be great to<br />

explain where everything is going. I have<br />

nothing but praise for the people who come<br />

out and do work on our streets.”<br />

Trustee Chairman John Pritchard said<br />

while the reports are easily obtained<br />

through a public records request, he asked<br />

Public Works Superintendent Dave<br />

Watkins to attend a homeowner’s association<br />

meeting to explain how the township<br />

prioritizes road projects.<br />

For information about the Marwick<br />

Civic Association, Poynter said people<br />

should visit Gogladly on Facebook. The<br />

association is also planning on holding<br />

monthly meetings at the Southeast Library<br />

Branch on Hamilton Road.

“We had a lot of returning lettermen from last year’s team,”<br />

said Stratton.<br />

Indians quarterback Jack Beeler and running back Stephan<br />

Byrd both had stellar seasons this year.<br />

“Jack improved dramatically from last<br />

year,” said Stratton. “His vision and arm<br />

strength have really shown up when we<br />

needed it. Stephan is just getting started.<br />

This is just the tip of the iceberg for him.<br />

It’s a lot of fun watching him improve each<br />

week, and he’s only 15 years old!”<br />

Byrd was All-OCC first team two years in<br />

a row, All-District in 2018, and All-State<br />

Honorable Mention in 2018 as a freshman.<br />

“He was the only freshman to do so in<br />

Division 2,” said Stratton of Byrd.<br />

Through 10 games in the regular season<br />

this year, Byrd had 1,578 total yards (1,372<br />

rushing, 206 receiving) and a total of 24<br />

touchdowns. Stratton said Byrd is being<br />

recruited by Mid-American Conference<br />

schools, Pittsburgh, University of<br />

Cincinnati, and Ohio State.<br />

Beeler, through 10 games of the regular<br />

season, had thrown for 1,363 yards and 15<br />

touchdowns with only five interceptions.<br />

Bed tax grant program<br />

The city of Canal Winchester is accepting applications<br />

for its 2020 Transient Occupancy Tax (Bed Tax)<br />

Grant program.<br />

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

organizations located within the city of Canal<br />

Winchester to help fund projects that will enhance<br />

Canal Winchester for residents and/or visitors to the<br />

community.<br />

Grants are funded with the hotel/motel tax revenue<br />

collected by the city of Canal Winchester.<br />

Canal Winchester has levied a 6 percent transient<br />

occupancy tax (bed tax) that is imposed when lodging<br />

is furnished to transient guests by a hotel, motel or<br />

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

to Destination: Canal Winchester, the designated<br />

visitors and convention bureau for Canal<br />

Winchester.<br />

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

Winchester City Council to fund the annual Bed Tax<br />

Grant Program.<br />

Grant applications are competitively reviewed and<br />

awards are made to those projects meeting all requirements<br />

and the intent of the program. Grant applications<br />

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

of Canal Winchester’s municipal building, 36 S. High<br />

St., Canal Winchester, OH 43110.<br />

Completed applications must be submitted in person<br />

or by mail to the attention of the finance director<br />

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

council will make award determinations in December.<br />

Award checks will be drawn in early 2020 and all<br />

awards must be used within the 2020 calendar year.<br />

Contact Amanda Jackson at ajackson@canalwinchesterohio.gov<br />

or 614-837-6937 for information.<br />

CW leaf pick up<br />

The city of Canal Winchester will conduct curbside<br />

leaf collection through Dec. 13. To avoid water backup<br />

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

the curb along the street. Leaf piles may contain<br />

leaves only, as sticks, grass trimmings and other yard<br />

waste can cause damage to leaf collection equipment.<br />

Regular yard waste will continue to be picked up by<br />

Waste Management during scheduled trash collection.<br />

Barber Museum<br />

The National Barber Museum in Canal Winchester<br />

is located at 135 Franklin St. (behind the former CW<br />

High School building). The museum, housed in approximately<br />

5,000 square feet, showcases art, artifacts, and<br />

memorabilia from decades of the barbering profession —<br />

from the early days when surgeons<br />

How hard do you want life to be for your family<br />

and close friends if you become unable to handle<br />

your own affairs? How much red-tape do you<br />

want your heirs to cut through upon your passing?<br />

The answers to those two questions are typically<br />

“not hard at all” and “as little as possible.”<br />

Consider this: Do you have documents and<br />

asset ownership in place to accomplish those<br />

goals?<br />

In order to make things as stress-free and efficient<br />

as possible, you need to actively create your<br />

plan. That’s where your attorney comes in – a<br />

strong estate planning attorney is highly skilled in<br />

assisting you in designing, creating and executing<br />

a plan that fits your personal goals.<br />

The vast majority of Americans do not have<br />

adequate planning in place to make life easier for<br />

Helping older adults cope<br />

with the “Holiday Blues”<br />

Older adults or anyone experiencing<br />

grief, loss or the blues may need extra support<br />

to get through the weeks between<br />

Thanksgiving and the New Year.<br />

Experts feel approaches for coping during<br />

the holidays will vary according to people’s<br />

needs. HealthinAging.org offers these suggestions,<br />

which will not only help older adults<br />

experiencing grief at this time of the year, but<br />

adults of all ages attempting to cope with the<br />

loss of a loved one during this holiday season:<br />

•Get out and about. Ask family and<br />

friends for help traveling to houses or worship,<br />

parties, and other events. Invite family<br />

and friends over. Taking a brisk walk is<br />

a great way to beat the blues.<br />

•Volunteer. Helping others is a great<br />

mood lifter.<br />

•Drink responsibly. It can be easy to<br />

overindulge around the holidays, but<br />

excessive drinking will only make you feel<br />

more depressed. •Accept your feelings.<br />

There’s nothing wrong with not feeling<br />

Informed Aging<br />

jolly; many people<br />

experience sadness<br />

and feelings of loss<br />

during the holidays.<br />

Be kind to yourself,<br />

seek support, and even laugh at yourself<br />

every now and then.<br />

•Talk to someone. Don’t underestimate the<br />

power of friends, family, mentors, and neighbors.<br />

Talk about your feelings; it can help you<br />

understand why you feel the way you do.<br />

It is very important to spend the holiday<br />

season in the company of supportive and<br />

caring people. As families, traditions and<br />

life changes, be open and embrace the fact<br />

that each holiday season is different and<br />

should be enjoyed in its own unique way.<br />

SENIOR OPTIONS SUPPORTS SENIORS<br />

WISHING TO REMAIN IN THEIR HOMES<br />

Franklin County Senior Options is available to support frail older adults who wish<br />

to remain in their homes or in the homes of their caregivers. Whenever possible,<br />

we want to honor the request of a loved one to remain at home. But how do you<br />

determine if this is the right decision?<br />

A review of one’s mental, physical, environmental and financial condition will<br />

help determine if living independently is a safe option. This review, called an<br />

assessment, should be done by an experienced professional with the knowledge<br />

of the older adult. It helps determine the areas of concern and offers<br />

suggestions to minimize potential problems.<br />

According to AARP, here are some basic areas you and your family members<br />

may want to consider:<br />

• Physical Health. Have they been diagnosed with any chronic diseases such<br />

as diabetes, high blood pressure, arthritis or emphysema? Or other diseases,<br />

such as bowel or bladder problems, heart disease, stroke or cancer? Do they<br />

have vision or hearing problems, excessive weight loss or gain, or difficulty<br />

walking? Make a list of health professionals they currently see. Add any recent<br />

hospitalizations.<br />

• Mental Health. Have they been diagnosed with any psychiatric disorders such<br />

as depression, anxiety or psychosis? Have they been diagnosed with<br />

Alzheimer's or another form of dementia? Are they showing signs of confusion,<br />

disorientation or isolation? What about mood swings or forgetfulness? Sadness<br />

or loneliness?<br />

• Medication Use. What medications are they currently taking? What is the<br />

dosage? How often? Include over the counter medications. Are they taking their<br />

medication as directed?<br />

• Daily Living Skills. Are they able to dress, bathe, get up from a chair, use a<br />

toilet, climb stairs, and use the phone? Do they know how to get help in an<br />

emergency? Can they shop, prepare meals, do housework and yard work? Can<br />

they safely drive?<br />

• Home and Community Safety. How safe is their neighborhood? Does their<br />

home have smoke alarms, and can they hear them adequately? Can they avoid<br />

telephone and door-to-door fraud? Can they maintain their house?<br />

• Support Systems. Do your older loved ones have frequent visitors or see<br />

friends? Do they go to a Senior Center, or get out of the house for other social<br />

reasons? Do family members live close by? Do they keep handy the names,<br />

addresses and phone numbers of key friends and family members who they can<br />

call in an emergency?<br />

• Appearance and Hygiene. How is their overall appearance? Is their hair<br />

clean? Teeth brushed? Shaved? Do they dress appropriately in clean clothes?<br />

• Finances. Can they live on their current income? Can they meet future needs<br />

with their current income? Are there any legal documents such as trusts, living<br />

wills, and/or durable power of attorney? Do they pay bills on time and make<br />

informed financial decisions?<br />

• Interests/Lifestyles. Do they engage in their favorite hobbies, read books,<br />

watch their favorite TV shows, exercise, play a musical instrument, go to church,<br />

and keep up with their friends? Are they still engaged in the activities they have<br />

always enjoyed?<br />

Professional consultants can help you and your loved ones decide when<br />

assistance is needed, what type of assistance is available and if independent<br />

living is an appropriate option. Personalized case management and<br />

assessment are available to meet the changing needs of older adults through<br />

Franklin County Senior Options.<br />

Senior Options, administered by the Franklin County Office on Aging and funded<br />

by the Senior Services Levy, helps maintain independence, ensures safety and<br />

improves the quality of life by providing a variety of community based services to<br />

Franklin County residents, age 60 and older. A call to (614) 525-6200 can link<br />

you to a caring professional.<br />

Outside Franklin County, a free nationwide directory assistance service called<br />

the Eldercare Locator is available to help find local support services. Call their<br />

toll-free phone number, 1-800-677-1116, between 9:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. EST<br />

weekdays.

one of the hungry diners during a Nov. 8 breakfast.<br />

ago–are hanging up their<br />

aprons and closing down<br />

the café on Dec. 13 after<br />

more than 766 Fridays<br />

unless new leadership can<br />

be found.<br />

“It’s a lot of Fridays out<br />

of one’s life,” said Lou, who,<br />

in a previous life was a<br />

social studies teacher at<br />

Groveport Middle School<br />

South before retiring.<br />

“There are roughly 24 people<br />

that volunteer each<br />

week and 16 expressed the<br />

desire to ‘retire.’ We’re currently<br />

serving, on average,<br />

around 200 breakfasts each<br />

day, which is phenomenal.<br />

During our busiest time,<br />

between 8:15 a.m. and 9:30<br />

a.m., we serve a breakfast a<br />

minute and that’s a lot better<br />

average than some restaurants.”<br />

The Caspersons and volunteers open the doors<br />

at 6 a.m., but people are<br />

often waiting at the door as<br />

early as 5:45 a.m. Two hours<br />

later, parking spaces are<br />

few and far between at the<br />

church, located at 4760<br />

Winchester Pike, Columbus.<br />

Inside the church hall,<br />

lined with tables set with<br />

placemats and bottles of<br />

maple syrup and ketchup,<br />

servers take orders to the<br />

kitchen for the $5 full-service<br />

breakfast, which<br />

includes eggs made to order;<br />

bacon, ham and sausage;<br />

French toast; pancakes;<br />

mush; biscuits; toast and<br />

coffee or tea.<br />

Depending on the time of<br />

day, conversations fill the<br />

air as individuals and<br />

groups engage in small talk.<br />

“This cafe primarily<br />

serves Southeastern<br />

Franklin County,” said Lou.<br />

“While church members<br />

make up 10 percent of our<br />

business, the remaining 90<br />

percent come from the community<br />

at large. We’ve had<br />

people come in from<br />

Fairfield and Licking<br />

County. Firefighters sometimes<br />

come in and we had<br />

local politicians in during<br />

the election season. We’ve<br />

never advertised. It’s all<br />

been through word-ofmouth.”<br />

Casperson hopes word-of-mouth gets out about the need<br />

for new people to take over the community breakfast,<br />

which he initially created to help pay for church maintenance,<br />

such as a new roof, lawn equipment and flooring<br />

replacement.<br />

While Lou admits the benefits are slim, there is a lot of<br />

camaraderie shared between the volunteers and the people<br />

they serve.<br />

“What keeps this going is not the grind, but the people<br />

and the community,” said Casperson.<br />

Madison Township Trustee Ed Dildine, who graduated<br />

with Casperson from high school, has been a regular at the<br />

Friday Morning Café for eight years and said, while the<br />

breakfast is great, what keeps him coming back are the<br />

people.<br />

“I really hope it doesn’t stop,” said Dildine.<br />

During a recent Friday, Madison Township John<br />

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

sat down together at breakfast. Like Dildine, Pritchard<br />

said the people keep bringing him back.<br />

“I can come here at 7 a.m. and still make it to work,”<br />

Pritchard said. “Lou’s done his job and I understand why<br />

he wants to stop. I’m hopeful somebody will take it over.<br />

Coming here, I’ve been able to reconnect with family and<br />

friends. The food is awesome and I usually get the mush.”<br />

York started coming to the weekly breakfasts after he<br />

became chief in 2018. He said it is a good atmosphere<br />

where people approach him freely with concerns and<br />

issues about the police department.<br />

“I enjoy the friendships and talking with people,” said<br />

York, who said Casperson was a teacher when he attended<br />

the middle school. “It’s nice to come here, have breakfast<br />

and be able to help people as well.”<br />

As a well-rehearsed ballet of pans, food, grills and people<br />

continue in the kitchen, Lou grabs a rag to clean off a<br />

table for the next diner and wistfully hopes these aren’t<br />

the last days for the Friday Morning Breakfast Café.<br />

“The church is interested in continuing the breakfast if<br />

leadership can be found,” said Casperson. “Otherwise, the<br />

last breakfast is Dec. 13.”

Coyotes are a valuable member of wild Ohio<br />

By Christine Bryant<br />

Staff Writer<br />

It’s been 100 years since the<br />

first coyote in Ohio was recorded.<br />

A century later, Battelle<br />

Darby Creek Metro Park<br />

recently celebrated this milestone<br />

with a special program at<br />

the Battelle Darby Creek<br />

Nature Center in Galloway,<br />

“100 Years of Coyotes,” that<br />

allowed visitors to get an up<br />

close look at coyote habitat and<br />

learn why they’re a valuable<br />

member of the wild.<br />

When spotted in 1919,<br />

wolves had been absent from<br />

Ohio for more than 50 years,<br />

Battelle Darby Creek Metro<br />

Park Naturalist Craig Biegler<br />

said.<br />

“Since then, they have<br />

spread to every county in the<br />

state, but nobody is sure exactly<br />

how many live in Ohio,” he said.<br />

Although the sounds and<br />

sightings of coyotes are common, especially in more rural<br />

areas, Biegler says there are many misconceptions about<br />

these animals.<br />

“For example, many people think that coyotes hunt in<br />

packs, but this is a major difference between the two<br />

Winter snow removal guidelines<br />

The city of Canal Winchester is committed<br />

to providing safe, accessible streets<br />

during inclement weather and encourages<br />

residents and businesses to do their part<br />

by clearing sidewalks.<br />

The city’s street department makes<br />

every effort to keep local streets clear and<br />

passable before, during, and after a snow<br />

event by utilizing a brine solution, salting,<br />

and plowing.<br />

During a season, crews have applied<br />

upwards of 8,000 gallons of brine solution<br />

and as many as 750 tons of salt.<br />

The city’s policy for snow and ice<br />

removal is to begin with arterial streets<br />

such as Gender Road, Columbus Street,<br />

High Street, Washington Street and<br />

Waterloo Street.<br />

Removal of snow and ice from arterial<br />

streets is followed by major streets within<br />

subdivisions, secondary streets within subdivisions,<br />

cul-de-sacs, alleys and then<br />

parking lots.<br />

Streets are cleared curb-to-curb to provide<br />

easier access for emergency vehicles<br />

and to prevent ice-damming, as well as to<br />

allow for proper gutter drainage.<br />

Removal of plowed snow in the downtown<br />

area occurs when snowfall exceeds<br />

eight inches and only after all other<br />

removal activities are complete.<br />

During a snow event, a bulk of Canal<br />

Winchester streets are maintained by<br />

street department staff, often working 12-<br />

hour shifts until snow and ice removal is<br />

complete. Some local roadways, however,<br />

canines,” he said. “Though they<br />

will share the same territory with<br />

close family members and exhibit<br />

a social structure, coyotes find food<br />

on their own, preferring to eat<br />

small animals like rabbits<br />

and rodents.”<br />

Coyotes also provide<br />

valuable pest control, he<br />

said.<br />

“A single coyote will eat<br />

around 10 small mammals<br />

a day,” Biegler said. “They<br />

are fascinating to observe<br />

and seem infinitely adaptable,<br />

thriving in deserts,<br />

forests, prairies and urban<br />

environments.”<br />

At the program, naturalists<br />

attempted to clear up<br />

some of these misconceptions,<br />

he said.<br />

“For better or worse, coyotes<br />

are the last large predator<br />

that can be found<br />

throughout Ohio,” Biegler<br />

said.<br />

Program attendees came to the nature center to<br />

see and touch a real coyote pelt and skull, Biegler<br />

said.<br />

“After an introductory talk, we headed out onto<br />

the trail and walked for about half a mile. When we<br />

may fall within the jurisdiction of county or<br />

township service and engineering departments.<br />

For questions regarding which jurisdiction<br />

plows and maintains your road, please<br />

contact the street department at 614-524-<br />

0163.<br />

Keeping sidewalks clear of snow and ice<br />

is the responsibility of property owners.<br />

You can help make sidewalks around your<br />

residence or business safer by shoveling a<br />

path around your property in a timely<br />

manner each time there is snow accumulation.<br />

Cleared sidewalks also assist local<br />

police, fire, and EMS during emergencies.<br />

Additional ways residents can help in<br />

the snow removal process include:<br />

•Do not shovel snow onto streets, alleys,<br />

or bike paths.<br />

•Shovel snow into small piles instead of<br />

large piles.<br />

Small piles will melt quicker and are<br />

less likely to develop into dangerous ice<br />

banks.<br />

•Clear snow around mailboxes, fire<br />

hydrants, and dumpsters.<br />

•Avoid parking on streets during snowy<br />

or icy conditions.<br />

•Help neighbors in need who may be<br />

elderly, sick, disabled, or unable to shovel<br />

for any reason.<br />

For complete details about the city’s<br />

snow removal policy, visit the website:<br />

www.canalwinchesterohio.gov.<br />

reached a good coyote habitat, we played some of their<br />

calls and tried to get a response,” he said. “I hope that people<br />

came away from the program with a new appreciation<br />

for coyotes and with the knowledge of how to manage<br />

interactions with them.”<br />

Dog Tales<br />

The “pawsitively” best way to<br />

learn to read is with a furry<br />

friend. Seven-year-old Dayton<br />

had a great time reading with<br />

therapy dog, Harley, when they<br />

participated in Wagnalls<br />

Memorial Library’s Dog Tales on<br />

Nov. 6. Harley is a 5-year-old<br />

golden doodle who has participated<br />

in Dog Tales since 2015.<br />

Being a certified therapy dog,<br />

Harley is able to do any type of<br />

children’s program, go to nursing<br />

homes and hospitals. His<br />

favorite activity is going to children's<br />

programs. “He gets excited<br />

to see the kids he knows,”<br />

said Donna Clay, Harley’s owner.<br />

Dayton is a seasoned participant<br />

of Dog Tales and he has quite a<br />

bit of experience reading books<br />

with Harley. He has been participating<br />

in Dog Tales almost every<br />

week for a year now. Dog Tales<br />

allows children ages 5-12 to<br />

come and practice reading with a furry friend. The event is held every Wednesday<br />

evening from 6:15-7:25 p.m. at Wagnalls Memorial Library, except for the second<br />

Wednesday of the month. After three reading sessions, a child can earn a book and<br />

prizes. Participants can sign up for Dog Tales at the children’s desk or you can call<br />

the library at 614-837-4765 ext. 118 to sign up for a session. Dogs are courtesy of<br />

The Connection Pet Therapy Program.

The misleading advertising may be to<br />

blame for the preconceived notion that<br />

“Last Christmas” is a standard romantic<br />

comedy fare.<br />

While romance certainly plays a factor<br />

in the film, it is not a deciding one, making<br />

it a bit of an oddball in this genre. Instead<br />

of treading on familiar terrain, “Last<br />

Christmas” takes a risk by carving a path<br />

that focuses more on the rediscovery of self<br />

after the avalanche of life takes an unexpected<br />

dump on your head.<br />

Depending on how important the<br />

romance aspect is to you in a romantic comedy,<br />

“Last Christmas” may not be the film<br />

for you.<br />

But if you’re looking for something that<br />

is humorous, sweet with a side of bitterness,<br />

and a tad unconventional, this might<br />

just be a movie you want to see.<br />

The film follows Kate (Emilia Clarke), a<br />

down-on-her-luck 20-something who is<br />

struggling to find the meaning in life after<br />

a near death experience.<br />

Try as though she might, she hasn’t<br />

found it in brief hookups, time spent (read:<br />

couch surfing) with her friends or at her job<br />

working as an elf at a year-round<br />

Christmas shop. As time goes on, she<br />

becomes more and more despondent with<br />

life but then she meets an affable young<br />

man named Tom (Henry Golding) who tries<br />

to change her outlook.<br />

Tom is, in short, a dream. He’s charming<br />

and handsome and spends his nights<br />

volunteering at a homeless shelter in<br />

downtown London.<br />

And when he sees Kate scowling at him<br />

in her elf outfit one day, he decides to make<br />

it his mission to help her rediscover the joy<br />

in life.<br />

At first, Kate is highly skeptical of his<br />

mission, and even more so of his sunny disposition.<br />

Eventually though, he wears her<br />

down with his endless enthusiasm and she<br />

slowly begins to open up for the first time<br />

in years.<br />

With his gentle encouragement, Kate<br />

entertainment<br />

More than just another holiday romantic comedy<br />

While it may seem like “Last<br />

Christmas” is another run-of-themill<br />

romantic comedy, its latter act<br />

upends the genre which may lead<br />

to a lot of disappointment from<br />

the more traditional fans.<br />

The Reel Deal<br />

begins to mend fences<br />

with the family she<br />

ignores and the friends<br />

whose hospitality she<br />

has taken advantage of.<br />

And, in time, she<br />

even tries to come to<br />

terms with herself for<br />

all of the choices she<br />

has made and all of<br />

the disappointments<br />

along the way. The<br />

Dedra<br />

Cordle<br />

latter, however, proves to be the hardest to<br />

do.<br />

While it may seem like “Last<br />

Christmas” is another run-of-the-mill<br />

romantic comedy, its latter act upends the<br />

genre which may lead to a lot of disappointment<br />

from the more traditional fans.<br />

I don’t want to spoil what happens but I<br />

just want you to be aware of its unconventional<br />

take.<br />

It’s not a bad thing, per se, but it will<br />

leave some feeling off-put by the decision to<br />

veer off the common path.<br />

Since the decision to boldly go where<br />

some others have gone before didn’t bother<br />

me (the first trailer kinda gave the finer<br />

points away), I found myself really enjoying<br />

this film.<br />

Its two leads have a warm screen presence<br />

and the addition of Emma Thompson<br />

as Kate’s overbearing mother (Thompson<br />

also co-wrote the movie) and Michelle Yeoh<br />

as Kate’s Christmas-loving boss really<br />

rounds out a great cast.<br />

While the dialogue isn’t always the<br />

sharpest and the side-plots meander on<br />

occasion, “Last Christmas” is a really sweet<br />

movie about re-learning, or just learning,<br />

to fall in love with yourself.<br />

It won’t be for everyone, but it should be<br />

given a chance.<br />

ODOT clears brush<br />

to improve sight lines<br />

The Ohio Department of Transportation<br />

recently cut back trees and brush along the<br />

road to open up sight lines to help make<br />

the intersection of State Route 674 and<br />

Elder Lane safer. ODOT’s goal is to give<br />

motorists crossing over Elder a longer field<br />

of view. New stop signs and a painted stop<br />

bar will also be put in place at the intersection.<br />

Signs stating cross traffic does not<br />

stop will also be posted.<br />
