had no idea the smallest mannerisms
could make such a big impact when interviewing
for a job.
The Columbus resident had been unemployed
since the spring and began looking
for ways to gain an edge on other job candidates.
He worked with a job and life skills specialist
at the Columbus Metropolitan
Library, took a Microsoft Word and Excel
class and attended job fairs. He says one
course in particular opened his eyes to how
he could set himself apart from the rest in
an often crowded applicant pool.
“I sat in a class on how to prepare
myself for a job interview,” he said. “I
learned a lot. (The course organizers) got a
suit for me, they motivated me and got my

The class is just one part of a new workforce
readiness program that supports the
Franklinton and Hilltop communities in
demonstrating early success. The collaboration
between Columbus Metropolitan
Library and CoverMyMeds launched in
July and is available at no cost at the
library’s Hilltop and Franklinton branches.
The program offers adults in neighborhoods
where unemployment rates are as
high as 7.9 percent an opportunity to learn,
grow and gain skills that translate into
workplace readiness and real-world success.
“When they announced their plan to
build a new campus in Franklinton,
CoverMyMeds approached us with the
desire to uplift the community,” said Alison
Circle, chief customer experience officer at
Columbus Metropolitan Library. “Together
we created a concept: a new program of free
classes at our Franklinton and Hilltop
branches designed to upskill jobseekers,
particularly around technology skills.”
For Peterson, in particular, among the
skills he gained were how simple actions
like eye contact and going into an interview
with a prepared strategy could work in his

Circle says the workforce readiness program

candidates desirable to employers.
“They cover everything from technology
and computer skills to interviewing and
resume writing and working as part of a
team,” she said. “We believe that the more

workplace, such as how to communicate,
workplace expectations and career planning.
In addition to helping develop the curriculum
to include a focus on technology,
CoverMyMeds employees are supporting
participants through mock job interviews
and resume coaching.
“The interest and drive we’ve seen so far
from CoverMyMeds employees has been
incredible, and that’s critical for the lasting
success of our collaboration with the
library to support the community,” said
Kate Bauer, community engagement manager
A CoverMyMeds team member recently
joined the Westside Workforce Program
Advisory Committee as well, she said.
The goal of the program, Circle says, is
to expand to include additional partners
and help address a larger issue in the community.
“We see this project as an incubation of
a bigger idea that we hope to take to many
of our other locations and entice other businesses
to support in other communities,”
she said. “Ultimately, our goal is a welltrained
workforce who earn a living wage.”
Also among the seven who have secured
jobs is Peterson’s wife, Jennifer, who
attended workplace technology classes and
received soft skills training and coaching
through the workplace readiness program.
For the Petersons, securing employment
has changed many areas of their lives.
Though they had been living in a shelter
for a year, they now have the stability they
needed to move forward in their lives.

Hilltop Commission reviews MORPC transportation plan
By Josephine Birdsell
The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission
(MORPC) is finishing its long range transportation plan
and is accepting feedback on transportation issues across
Thea Walsh, director of transportation and infrastructure
development, spoke about the plan at the Dec. 3
Greater Hilltop Area Commission meeting.
The plan is revised once every four years. This term, the
plan spans 30 years and covers transportation primarily in
Franklin County and Delaware County, as well as urban
areas of associated counties. MORPC expects to receive
over $20 billion to allocate to projects over the next 30
years, Walsh said.
The plan will be finalized by July 1, 2020.
MORPC is now in the final stages of planning. The plan
currently outlines major transportation projects across

Columbus, including Bus Rapid Transit, a high speed busing
system, and a hyperloop connecting Columbus to
Chicago and Pittsburgh.
Five corridors are proposed for the Bus Rapid Transit: a
corridor along East Main Street, a northeast corridor from
downtown Columbus to the Polaris area, a northwest corridor
from downtown Columbus to Dublin, a southeast corridor
from downtown to the south end near Rickenbacker,
and a corridor along West Broad Street coming out of
There is no exact timeline for the Bus Rapid Transit,
however the busing system will most likely be functional
within the next 10 years, said Walsh.
The system aims to help the city prepare for population
growth. Central Ohio is expected to experience a population
growth from two million to three million residents by

going to have a gridlock,” said Walsh, “so ensuring that we

Choir looking for singers
New singers are needed for an adult community
order to be able to move everybody and to encourage people
to live close to their jobs.”
There is no timeline for the hyperloop connecting
Columbus to Chicago and Pittsburgh, but MORPC hopes
to see movement on the project by the 2020s and a fully
realized transit system by 2050, said Walsh.
MORPC’s plan also accounts for smaller projects, like
widening roads, improving existing bus routes and creating
new bike paths.
The organization is taking suggestions from community
members on projects they would like to see addressed.
Suggestions should include specific locations for projects
and details on the type of work needed.
“I cannot understate how important that feedback is to
us (westside projects) getting funded,” Melissa Green,
West Side Pride Center Manager said.

A program dedicated to helping low
income families and seniors in need will
once again come to a local township.
At a recent Prairie Township meeting,
the trustees discussed a partnership with
ModCon Living, formerly called Rebuilding
Together Central Ohio.
The program provides significant
repairs to homes during a scheduled weekend.
It provides the repairs to ensure senior
citizens and low-income residents are
living in a safe environment.
Since 2018, the group and the township
has worked together to improve area
homes. In previous years, they have
worked on homes in Little Farms and
Lincoln Village. This year, homes on Inah
Avenue, Gladys Road, Postle Boulevard
and Oxley Road would benefit from the program.
“Work will take place between May 8-9,
2020,” said Rob Peters, administrator for
Prairie Township. “Work will include electrical
and plumbing updates, furnaces and
hot water tank replacements, fire safety
and fall prevention improvements.”
In previous years, more than 500 volunteers
participated during each event and
invested $400,000 in contributed time,
skilled labor, contributions, equipment and
In order to work in the communities,
ModCon Living asks the municipality to
invest as well. In 2018 and 2019, Prairie
Township invested $50,000, helping pay for
materials and equipment. While an
amount has not been decided, Peters said
the township would invest again next year.
To be eligible for the program, one must
be below the federal poverty guidelines.
“Last year, the average income in the
neighborhood was $21,000,” said Julie
Smith, executive director for ModCon
Living. “When you are only making
$21,000 a year, you can’t afford to fix a
bathroom or drainage issues.”
ModCon Living’s goal is to sustain

Handheld traffic cameras have been a
benefit to Franklin Township.
At a recent meeting, the board of
trustees adjusted the distribution of funds
from revenue generated from the traffic
tickets. The adjustments include giving 59
percent of the generated funds to the police
department for school safety, 2 percent to a
community scholarship fund, 2 percent for
community engagement and the remaining
funds will go to the general fund and road
Since the handheld camera system has
been engaged, the township has raised over
$104,000 in revenue for the township. The
township has written over 3,800 tickets.
The handheld camera system is used by
one officer during school hours, which is
peak speeding time, according to Franklin
Township Police Chief Byron Smith.
Drivers are ticketed for going 10 miles
per hour or more over the speed limit. Each
speeding ticket is priced at a flat $100 fee,
according to Smith. This is lower than the
average speeding ticket in Ohio, which
starts at about $140 and goes up with an
increase in speed.
As a result of the new ticketing system,
the township has been able to give away
three $1,000 scholarships to local graduating
seniors, donate $1,000 to Ohio Youth
Development for the Havenwood
Afterschool Youth Scholarship Program
and $200 to Franklin Heights High
School’s Special Olympics Fund.
In other news, the trustees approved a
motion to allow township officials to renegotiate
a written agreement between the
Ohio Department of Transportation
(ODOT) and the township regarding maintenance
for the medians on Georgesville
In 2013, the township partnered with
ODOT to build the medians. Investing
thousands of dollars in decorative plants,
the plants quickly died because it was not
the right fit for the area.
In a rush to complete the project, no
maintenance agreement was ever signed
by the township, therefore they had no
responsibility to maintain the property. As
a result, the landscaping became neglected
and turned into an eyesore. ODOT also
would not maintain the property without
an agreement, so the property has only
been mowed from time-to-time.
homes and neighborhoods by providing
reliable, affordable homes repair and modification
services, while serving vulnerable
homeowners, according to its website.
During each project, usually around 70
homes are repaired. For residents that are
not eligible for the program or do not live in
the area being improved, ModCon Living
has a tool library residents can take advantage
of. For $40 a year, residents can rent
tools from the tool library for free to do
home improvements. Seniors and students
who met income guidelines pay $20 a year.

Trustees redistribute funds gained from speeding tickets
The city of Columbus has been hard at
work to innovate solutions to complex problems.
The impact of the opioid epidemic on
the residents of Columbus has resulted in
the need for outside of the box thinking to
solve the crisis.
To that end, the department of public
safety took a hard look at the way the city
was responding to overdose calls and
searched for the best way to link individuals
with the appropriate care and treatment
to address their disease of substance
In partnership with the Columbus
Police Division, Columbus Fire, the
ADAMH board, Southeast Health, Central
Ohio Area Agency on Aging, and the
Central Ohio Hospital Association, City
Council has worked to establish the Rapid
Response Emergency Addiction Crisis
Over the last year, the team consisted of
a paramedic and social worker who
responded to the hospital emergency room
to engage residents who had just experienced
an overdose in hopes of linking them
with treatment. The RREACT program is
the first of its kind collaboration between
EMS personnel, CPD officers, social workers,
and treatment facilities to combat the
ongoing opiate crisis.
“The RREACT program is an innovative
response to the complex opiate problem,”
said councilman Mitchell Brown. “I commend
our first responders from the
Division of Fire, Division of Police and all
other partners for combining efforts to combat
this crisis in our community and provide
compassionate care to those struggling
Two vehicles have been purchased for
the program, with a cost of $65,884.
Overtime for CPD officers working on the
program is funded through a $50,000 grant
from the Ohio Attorney General.
“The funding for the RREACT vehicles
secured by Brown will allow our team to
continue to conduct outreach and provide
transportation for residents who are ready
for their journey to recovery,” said Lt.
Matthew Parrish, Columbus Division of
“The Division of Fire is proud to be the
facilitator in working with our partners on
the long term solution to this tragic epidemic,”
said Chief Kevin O’Connor,
Columbus Division of Fire. “This REACT
The trustees have been hesitant to agree
to any other similar projects until this
issue is resolved. Some of the projects they
have been presented with, but haven’t proceeded
with or have put on temporary hold
include planting and treating trees on West
Broad Street and landscape improvement
to the I-270 interchange project.
“We already put $100,000 of taxpayer
dollars into medians and the plants that
were planted died because they weren’t the
right plants for that area,” said John
Fleshman, township trustee. “We then
spent an additional $15,000 on additional
plants and those died because we had no
maintenance agreement. I do not want to
spend any more money on projects like this
until this issue is resolved.”

for their loved ones. Cooking for a crowd
can seem like a daunting task, especially
for first-time hosts. However, there are
various ways for hosts to simplify cooking
for a crowd this holiday season.
1. Prepare a familiar dish
Hosts may agonize over their holiday
menus, and some may feel compelled to
prepare a family specialty or the same
dishes their parents or grandparents prepared
for holiday dinners when they were
children. But holiday hosts can make
things easy on themselves by choosing
dishes they’ve made in the past, regardless
of their place in family history. Chances
are the ingredients for hosts’ own specialties
are already in the pantry, saving a
potentially time-consuming trip to the grocery
store. And thanks to the familiarity
factor, hosts’ own specialties likely won’t
require as much time to prepare.
2. Share some cooking duties
Another way to simplify cooking for a
crowd is to invite guests to bring along a
side dish or dessert. Guests who live nearby
can make something in advance of the
big meal, while hosts can hand over their
Ring in the new year with Mike
Albert’s Elvis tribute show
Get out of the house and ring in 2020 at a New
Year’s Eve party that is rated one of the best in
The Crowne Plaza Hotel, 6500 Doubletree
Ave., will host Mike Albert and The Big “E” Band
at this 15th annual New Year’s Eve bash.
Albert is an award winning “Elvis Presley
impersonator.” His wardrobe, voice and amazing
wit makes for a wonderful show.
You can get a full service dinner, drinks, room,
hats and horns, champaign toast at midnight along
with a full breakfast New Year’s Day for only
$299 per couple. There is also a party package for
$235 per couple or $135 per single. Tickets are
limited. For reservations, call (614) 792-3135.
Early check in is at 1 p.m., ballroom doors
open at 7 p.m. Three drink tickets each for draft
beer or wine, included in the price, will be available
until midnight, with dinner at 7 p.m. The
show kicks off at 9 p.m.
“Mike’s New Year’s Eve show is like no
other,” said promoter Doug Henry. “He interacts
with the crowd, which makes for a fun time.”
kitchens to overnight guests who express a
willingness to contribute their own homecooked
dish to the party. Sharing the cooking
duties gives hosts more time to connect
with friends and family and serves as a
great way to plan the menu in advance.
3. Only make what guests are likely to
Hosts also should not feel pressured to
cook more food than is necessary. Holiday
meals have a tendency to be lavish, but
hosts don’t have to spend all day in the
kitchen preparing food that will likely end
up as leftovers or trash. Get a final headcount
in the days before everyone comes
over and adjust your recipes accordingly.
4. Start early
If the big is on Christmas Day, that does
not mean hosts have to start cooking while
everyone unwraps their presents. Hosts
who are uncertain about what to cook can
look for meals that can be prepared in
advance so come the big day all they need
to do is turn on the oven and let meals cook
while the family spends time together.
Hosts can employ various strategies to
simplify the process of cooking for a
crowd this holiday season.

The interwoven thread between greed
and death has been the focus of two movies
released in just as many weeks at the theater.
The first to mine the dual subjects
came out around Thanksgiving and was a
throwback to the whodunit era. The second
and more serious offering was released this
past weekend and was a throwback to,
well, every era. The former is the more
buzzed about option while the latter is an
important, albeit depressing, piece of work.
While vastly different in tone, both are
worthy of a watch.
There are some who believed that director
Rian Johnson was finished after a
groundswell of backlash for his involvement
with “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.”
Such was the anger for this film and his
vision that multiple petitions made the
online rounds, begging the studio to change
the film. Some even swore that they would
never support a film written or directed by
Likely reeling from the intensity,
Johnson went back to his smaller fare roots
and wrote and directed “Knives Out,” a
murder-mystery akin to the beloved “Clue.”
In it, the audience is taken to the day
after the apparent suicide of a famed mystery
writer on the night of his 85th birthday.
While trying to unwrap the mystery of
this potential murder, the detective on the
case, Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig), also tries
to solve the secondary mystery as to who
hired him to solve the mystery.
The prime suspects in the crime are
vast, as the late novelist Harlan Thrombley
(Christopher Plummer) has many after his
fortune, namely his family. Throughout the
course of the film, we see various points-ofview
and get to know these self-serving
members and delight in their lying and
With an ensemble cast that includes
Jamie Lee Curtis, Toni Collette, Chris
Evans, Michael Shannon and Don Johnson,
the movie can feel a little over-stuffed but
it is the presence of actress Ana de Armas
that grounds this film. Her role in this
whodunit is that of Harlan’s home health
aide who may know some (or all) of the
buried secrets in this wealthy family.
While it may not be as clever as it sets
out to be, “Knives Out” is great fun, filled
with twists and turns and a terrific performance
by Craig. Though his accent
wavers at times, some of his lines, particularly
those comparing his mysterious hiring
to that of a donut with seemingly endless
donut holes, had me laughing out loud.
In contrast, nary a laugh is to be found
in “Dark Waters” but it is an equally
engaging movie in an entirely different
The script was mined from multiple
journalists (Nathaniel Rich, Mariah Blake
Two movie reviews with one common theme - greed
and Sharon Lerner) and their respective
publications which detailed the poisoning
of the air and water supply in Parkersburg,
West Virginia by DuPont.
The loosely based film stars Mark
Ruffalo as Robert Bilott, a corporate attorney
who gets roped into listening to a perceived
paranoid hillbilly as a favor to his
grandmother. Said perceived paranoid hillbilly
is Wilbur Tennant (a terrific Bill
Camp), a cow farmer who believes his herd
has been poisoned by the land he shares
with the chemical company.
He shows Robert the preserved intestines
of his cows, noting the blackened
teeth, enlarged spleens and hearts and
shakenly relays that he had to shoot many
of them due to aggressive behavior. At first,
Robert is skeptical but agrees to take the
case and sue DuPont with the approval of
his boss Tom Terp (Tim Robbins).
During the discovery phase, Robert
uncovers that they knowingly exposed
their workers, the townsfolk and just about
everyone and everything else to dangerous
“forever chemicals” for their bottom line.
The movie takes place over the decade
plus of Robert’s legal battle with the company
and shows how it changes his life, the
lives of his family, and the lives of everyone
who shares this world. It’s an infuriating
look at this public health crisis that is still
ongoing with more horrors unfolding, and
The Reel Deal

While there are
depictions of bright
spots in the film —
some of those who faced life-threatening illnesses
were granted millions in settlements
— it’s cheapened by the fact that
these people, the heads of these companies
who do this, belong in prison but will never
be held to that level of account for their
“Dark Waters” is not a fun watch, nor is
it an easy one, but it is a worthy one that
brings attention to an infinite crisis and
shine the light on some of the people who
fight tirelessly and thanklessly to bring
them to (some) justice.
