Raiders enter world of competitive esports

By Dedra Cordle

Staff Writer

Ever since a controller was placed in his

hands when he was 9, Espn Henry has been

enamored with video games. He was immediately

drawn to the realistic graphics, then

to the variety of offerings and then to the

way they made him feel as he navigated

challenging obstacles.

As he grew older, he branched out to pit

his burgeoning skills against those of his

friends and then those of strangers through

the expansion of the multiplayer universe.

At first, Henry took to his new medium as

he played against gamers across the globe,

but he soon discovered that not everyone

was as courteous a player as he was.

Though his interest in video games—or at

least the multiplayer games—cooled after

that experience, he couldn’t help but be intrigued

when his school announced last fall

that it was starting an esports club.

“I was very interested in joining, but I

thought it would be a toxic environment,”

said Henry, a freshman at London High

School.

Dillan Shumaker, the club’s founder and

advisor, as well as London City Schools’

technology coordinator, shared that concern.

“I have been playing video games and

been around the gaming world long enough

to be well aware of the negative things that

can be said, especially when you involve

multiplayer gamers,” Shumaker said. “But

after speaking with Lou Kramer (the school

district’s superintendent), we felt we

needed to give the students a chance to explore

this growing sport and allow them the

chance to share in and create a positive experience

with fellow gamers.”

When the doors to London High School’s

media center opened for the new club in late

October, Shumaker said he continued to

wonder if it was the right idea.

“There were so many people here, and all

of the avid gamers flocked to the new computers

that were more equipped for the

speed of the games,” he said with a laugh.

“Despite the fact that all of the other computers

are near the same level of compatibility,

it was hard to get them away from

these six computers. So, I had to lay out

some ground rules for them to follow.”

The number one rule was not to mess up.

“I told them that this would be our only

chance to make a good impression, to prove

to our school and administration that they

made the right choice by allowing us to

have this club,” Shumaker said. “I told

them that they had to share, they had to behave

and that they had to take care of the

equipment.”

After the slightly choppy start, Shumaker

said, it has been smooth sailing.

“They have impressed me so much with

their behavior,” he said. “They have been so

supportive of each other and really willing

to help others improve their skills, and not

just for the sake of potential team victories

down the road.”

London High School’s esports club plans

to participate in competitions through its

affiliation with Esports Ohio. (Esports are

not a sanctioned sport through the Ohio

High School Athletic Association.) The competition

season starts in February. To prepare,

London’s Red Raiders gamers are

scrimmaging with clubs across the state.

The four games included in competitions

are “League of Legends,” “Overwatch,”

“Rocket League” and “Super Smash Brothers.”

So far, London has amassed an impressive

number of scrimmage wins,

especially in “Rocket League.”

“We have one of the best ‘Rocket League’

players in the world on our team,” Shumaker

said, referring to sophomore James

Kuplinger.

Kuplinger said he has been gaming since

he was in the sixth grade and found his

niche in the fast-paced world of “Rocket

League.”

“I discovered I was really good at car soccer,”

he said.

In the years since he was introduced to

the popular game, he has achieved the level

of Champion 3.

“It’s for the top 1 or 2 percent of players,”

Shumaker said. “Like I said, he’s really

good.”

The talent, both proven and blooming, in

the club is another reason why Kramer said

he approved of the formation of the club.

New visitor check-in system at Alder schools

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

“It’s just another level of safety and security,” said

Dr. Misty Swanger, Jonathan Alder Local Schools assistant

superintendent.

In a presentation at the Jan. 13 school board meeting,

Swanger explained the new visitor check-in system

the district is unrolling over the next couple of months.

Anyone who visits any of the district’s school buildings

during school hours and plans to enter the buildings

beyond the front offices will be required to have

their driver’s licensed scanned. The scanner will check

for alerts in categories that include the sex offender registry,

custody orders and protective orders.

If a person is cleared to enter the building, the system

will print a badge with the visitor’s image and the

part of the building they are visiting. If an emergency

situation arises with a visitor while they are in the front

office, the system operator has the ability to send an

emergency notification to the building principal and

anyone else the district designates.

The district is piloting the system for about six weeks

at Plain City Elementary. Then on March 6, secretaries

at the other buildings will be trained, and the system

will go live in those buildings on March 9.

The cost of the system for the district was $8,500.

Pricy trip

After a long discussion during the business portion

of the meeting, the board approved a trip to New

Zealand, Australia and Hawaii, open to high school students

and slated for June 7-21, 2021. Any student who

wishes to make the trip must cover the $6,000 cost

themselves. Fundraisers are planned, and some scholarships

will be available. The trip’s cost stirred debate

and questions among board members.

“That’s more than the state gives us to educate a student

for a year,” said board member Steve Votaw as a

point of comparison.

“Six thousand dollars is an exorbitant amount of

money,” said newly elected board member Bill McCartney,

who asked if anyone polled students ahead of time

to see how many would be interested in the trip and if

the cost was a deterrent.

A poll was not taken, said Superintendent Gary

Chapman, who reported that, so far, 17 students have

expressed interest.

Each year, the district offers students the opportunity

to take a trip abroad to learn about other cultures.

Typically, those trips cost about half what next year’s

trip costs, and between 12 and 20 students go on them.

This year, the destination is the Galapagos Islands, a

province of Ecuador.

Clint Hayes, principal at the high school, said the

trips are great educational experiences for students.

Board members agreed but wondered about limits.

“I don’t think you have to travel across the world to

get cultural exposure,” said Votaw, who likes the idea

of such trips but voted against approval of the New

Zealand, Australia and Hawaii trip. He also suggested

that the board look into the parameters other school district’s

set for such trips and consider creating a board

policy.

McCartney reiterated his desire to see a survey

taken regarding cost as a possible deterrent for students.

The trip was approved 4-1.

Board officers and meeting dates

During the annual organizational portion of the

meeting, the board elected Christine Blacka as president

for the year and Shannon Foust as vice president.

Committee assignments for the year are as follows:

• board policy—Blacka and Mary Jo Boyd;

• strategic planning—Foust and Votaw;

• insurance—Foust;

• technology—Blacka and McCartney;

• community support coalition—McCartney; and

• Tolles Career & Technical Center representative—Tom Bichsel,

former school board member.

The board likely will reconvene its finance committee this spring

in anticipation of a levy renewal request in 2021.

The board will continue to meet monthly in 2020, typically on

the second Monday of the month in the high school library. Exceptions

on days and/or locations include: Feb. 10 at the junior high,

April 13 at Monroe Elementary, June 23 (a Tuesday) at the high

school, Oct. 12 at Plain City Elementary, and Dec. 14 at Canaan

Middle School. All meetings start at 6:30 p.m.

“The world of esports has been growing immensely and rapidly,”

said the superintendent. “Not only can these players make a lot of

money if they go professional, but it opens them up to so many

scholarship opportunities and job opportunities as more and more

schools are starting their own clubs and developing undergrad degrees

for the gaming industry.”

Shumaker said that since October, he has fielded calls from collegiate

recruiters asking about some of the club’s players.

“I don’t really know what they’re asking sometimes when they

get into the greater details of positions, but I know it’s a positive

that they are showing interest in our students already,” he said.

Club members practice Monday through Thursday after school

and scrimmage whenever affiliated schools are available. Soon,

Shumaker will hold tryouts for junior varsity and varsity teams for

each of the four games eligible for competition.

Freshman Jacob Yearout believes London has the potential to

win the esports league championship this year.

“I think we are going to do amazing this year,” he stated. “If we

all keep working together and supporting each other, we are going

to be unstoppable.”

As for Henry, he overcame his reservations about the club and

is now debating whether to try out for a spot on the “Overwatch”

junior varsity or varsity team.

“I’m still improving at the game, but I think it wouldn’t hurt to

try,” he said.

It also doesn’t hurt that he knows his clubmates have his back

as he makes strides in the gaming world.

“It’s been a good surprise,” he said.

Shumaker said the club remains open to new members. Though

most of the current members are young men, Shumaker wants

young women at the school to know they are welcome to join, too.

“I know there are female gamers out there,” he said, “and I just

want them to know that this club is open for everyone.”

The Ohio Department of Agriculture Clean Ohio Local

Agricultural Easement Purchase Program awarded

$314,178 to the Madison County commissioners to purchase

agricultural easements from willing landowners

who wish to preserve their farms in perpetuity.

An agricultural easement is a voluntary, permanent,

legally binding restriction placed on a farm that limits

the use of the land to predominantly agricultural activity.

The application period began on Jan. 15 and closes

on March 27.

Farms with the highest scores are offered a price for

their easement based on the score, not to exceed $2,000

per acre and $500,000 total. The Madison commissioners

would co-hold the easement with the Ohio Department

of Agriculture and/or the Natural Resources

Conservation Service. Farms will be monitored once per

year to ensure compliance. Landowners are encouraged

to seek advice from their own advisors.

To eligible for application, a farm must be: at least

40 acres in size (or 10 to 39 acres if contiguous to existing

protected land; enrolled in the Current Agricultural

Use Valuation (CAUV) program; and enrolled in an

agricultural district.

The benefit of an agricultural easement is that the

landowner owns the land and may sell, gift or otherwise

convey it to others. In addition, the farm remains in one

piece because the landowner and future generations

will not be able to subdivide the farm into smaller farms

or houses once the agricultural easement is placed on

it. One homestead is allowed per farm.

Costs associated with placing a conservation easement

on the land come out of closing or directly from

the landowner. Costs could include a new survey, an appraisal,

title/closing services, and a 1 percent stewardship

fee based on the purchase price of the easement.

Since 2002, 27 farms for a total of 6,650 acres have

been accepted into the program in Madison County, at

an average price of $1,400 per acre. The program is

highly competitive and funding is not guaranteed.

To apply, contact the Madison Soil and Water Conservation

District at (740) 852-4003, option 3, to make

an appointment before March 27.

It’s not too late to get a flu shot for this season

Flu season is in full swing. Ohio is now listed as having widespread

flu activity, according to the Health & Human Services Regional

Surveillance Data. The state is reporting influenza illnesses

in 3.41 percent of the population, well above Ohio’s 1.9 percent baseline.

In the final two weeks of 2019, central Ohio reported that the

number of flu hospitalizations

more than tripled compared

to the same time

for your health

frame in 2018. Emergency room visits for influenza-like illnesses

are 16 percent greater than they were last year.

Madison County Public Health (MCPH) wants to help prevent

you from becoming a flu statistic this year. MCPH reminds us that

everyone older than six months of age should receive a flu shot. If

you haven’t received your flu shot yet this season, no worries.

MCPH is still providing flu shots to residents, including high dose

for those older than 65. A later season flu shot will provide protection

through the spring. Last year, the flu season was much longer,

so getting a flu shot at this time is still beneficial.

There are a few ways that everyone can protect themselves and

prevent the spread of germs beyond the flu shot. Be sure to cover

coughs and sneezes with your elbow, not hands. Everyone, sick or

healthy, should also wash their hands often.

Symptoms of seasonal flu include fever, cough, sore throat, body

aches, headache, chills and fatigue. The common cold is different

and does not normally have fever or severe illness associated with

it. Flu-like illnesses are spread by coughs, sneezes, talking, and

touching germy objects. The flu attacks the very young, the very

old, pregnant, sick, and healthy. Flu shows no mercy and can even

lead to death.

If you are sick, stay home! During your illness, stay away from

those who may become ill easily or who are at high risk for complications

from flu. By leaving the house, you put all others at risk.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends

staying home for 24 hours after fever is gone without using

fever-reducing medication.

The majority of flu illnesses can be treated at home. However, if

symptoms become more severe, you are pregnant, or you have an

underlying chronic medical condition, seek medical attention immediately.

To help recover from the flu, make sure you get plenty

of rest. It is also important to drink clear fluids such as water, broth

Health, administers a flu shot to Jenn Coleman, executive director

of Madison County Family & Children First.

or sports drinks. There are also electrolyte enhanced drinks made

for infants to prevent them from becoming dehydrated. Do not give

aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid) to children or teenagers who have the

flu; this can cause a rare but serious illness called Reye Syndrome.

For children, emergency warning signs that need urgent medical

attention include:

• fast breathing or trouble breathing;

• bluish or gray skin color;

• not drinking enough fluids (urine will be dark yellow; not having

to urinate as often);

• severe or persistent vomiting;

• not waking up or not interacting;

• being so irritable that the child does not want to be held;

• flu-like symptoms improve but then return with fever and

worse cough.

For adults, emergency warning signs that need urgent medical

attention include:

• difficulty breathing or shortness of

breath;

• pain or pressure in the chest or abdomen;

• sudden dizziness;

• confusion;

• severe or persistent vomiting;

• flu-like symptoms improve but then return

with fever and worse cough.

Again, it is not too late to receive your flu

shot. Call MCPH at (740) 852-3065 to find

the most convenient time to stop in. MCPH

offers drive-up service and home visits for

flu shots at no additional cost to help with

those who have mobility issues or are homebound.

Keep your New Year’s resolution to stay

healthy in 2020 by protecting yourself from

the flu. If you have questions about the flu

or flu shots, contact Madison County Public

Health at info@madisonpublichealth.org or

(740) 852-3065.

County may see increased natural gas capacity

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

Increased natural gas capacity could be

coming to Madison, Logan and Union counties.

For the past couple of years, the Ohio

Gas Access Partnership, a coalition representing

the three counties and many of the

municipalities within them, has been engaging

with Columbia Gas to find a way to increase

natural gas capacity to support

industrial, commercial and residential development.

At the Jan. 14 Madison County commissioners

meeting, Rob Slane, county administrator,

said Columbia Gas recently

presented a solution. The gas company is in

the permitting process now with the Public

Utilities Commission of Ohio. If plans are

approved, construction would follow, Slane

said.

Because members of the coalition are

under a non-disclosure agreement with Columbia

Gas, Slane said he could not share

details at this time about the project.

The Madison County commissioners are

in support of the solution, he said.

“We believe it’s a good fix,” said Commissioner

Mark Forrest.

In other business, with input from county

Auditor Jennifer Hunter, the commissioners

buttoned up details on the county’s new

budget stabilization fund, approved at their

Jan. 7 meeting.

The commissioners voted to transfer $2.5

million in the general fund to a stabilization

fund. The money is earmarked in part to

help with expenses in the event of a downturn

in the economy, such as the county experienced

in 2006 and 2008.

“It’s really a safeguard,” Slane said.

“We’re being proactive as opposed to reactive.”

The approved uses for the fund, which is

allowable under the Ohio Revised Code, are

as follows:

• to stabilize county budgets against

cyclical changes in revenues and expenditures;

• to provide for the payment of claims,

assessments and deductibles under the

county insurance program, medical insurance

program, and workers’ compensation

plan;

• to provide for the payment of accumulated

sick leave and vacation leave, and for

payments in lieu of taking compensatory

time off, upon the termination of employment

or the retirement of officers and employees

of the county;

• to provide for payment of salaries during

any fiscal year when the number of pay

periods exceeds the usual and customary

number of pay periods; and

• to acquire, construct or improve fixed

assets.

The $2.5 million represents two months

of estimated expenses for the county. Slane

said the commissioners can choose to add

money to the fund in the future.

Also on Jan. 14, the commissioners discussed

options for fixing the leaky roof at

the Jones Building, a county-owned property

at 13 N. Oak St. in London that houses

the Bureau of Motor Vehicles, county auto

title office and county deputy registrar. So

far, the options range from a $30,000 repair

to a complete replacement for over

$125,000. The commissioners asked Slane

to look at additional options.

Renae Zabloudil, county clerk of courts,

offered $100,000 toward the roof project,

saying, “I want it done right.” Zabloudil

oversees the auto title and registrar department.

The $100,000 would come from certificate

of title administration fees. Zabloudil

said she has about $700,000 in the fund.

She likes to keep two years’ worth of expenses

for her office’s operation in the fund,

which amounts to a total of $500,000. That

leaves $200,000 for other expenses related

to her department.

Commissioner Tony Xenikis thanked

Zabloudil for earmarking the funds but

noted that even with those funds, the commissioners

will be fiscally responsible with

their choice for the roof’s fix.

and see kids from other schools,” said Valerie

Peart, Arts Council treasurer. “Also,

the high school kids are getting ready for

Solo & Ensemble Contest, so this is another

chance for them to play their pieces in front

of an audience.”

Admission to the showcase is free. Donations

will be accepted for the Arts Council's

scholarship fund. Last year, the organization

gave five $500 scholarships to graduating

seniors from around the county.

“Anyone going to college who has an arts

background or interest in the arts can

apply,” Peart said.

The Arts Council distributes information

about the scholarship to guidance counselors

and students at Jonathan Alder, London,

Madison-Plains, Shekinah and West

Jefferson high schools, as well as Tolles Career

and Technical Center.

The application is available for download

on the Arts Council's home page at

www.madisoncountyartscouncil.org/. Applicants

are asked to list the fine arts activities,

visual and/or musical, in which they

have been involved in school and in the

community. They also are asked to outline

their college plans and write a 250- to 300-

word essay about what the fine arts have

meant to them. Applications must be

turned in to school guidance counselors by

the last day of school in March.

The Madison County Arts Council is a

non-profit organization dedicated to fostering

education and providing entertainment

through the sponsorship and presentation

of the performing and visual arts.

facility at 142 and I-70

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

A commercial truck dealer plans to build

a 130,000 square-foot facility near the State

Route 142 exit off of I-70.

Fyda Freightliner, currently located on the

west side of Columbus, plans to move its operations

to 49 acres on Plain City-Georgesville

Road across from Prairie Oaks Metro Park.

On Jan. 14, the Madison County commissioners

approved rezoning of the property from

agriculture to general commercial.

Tim Fyda, president of the company, said

the business is landlocked in its current location

off of Hilliard-Rome Road and is at

capacity inside and out. Fyda Freightliner

sells and services commercial trucks and

truck parts and operates a commercial

truck body shop. Currently, that work takes

place in five buildings that total about

70,000 square feet.

The new facility in Madison County will

almost double the company’s space and increase

efficiency by bringing all operations

under one roof, Fyda said. The property also

will allow for more parking than the existing

location.

“We’re really impressed with Madison

County and this whole process, and we look

forward to being here,” Fyda said.

The application for rezoning was submitted

to the regional planning commission on

Nov. 12, received approval from the county

zoning commission on Dec. 5, and went before

the county commissioners for approval

on Jan. 14.

The plan is to break ground on the new

facility this summer. Construction will take

12 to 18 months to complete. Fyda said the

company will bring all of its 140 employees

with them to the new site. Over time, the

number of employees could increase to 200,

he added.

Fyda represents the second generation to

run the family business, which his father

founded in 1954. He said a third generation

of the family also is at work at the business.

Marlin Yutzy, a West Jefferson resident

and owner of the 49 acres Fyda Freightliner

plans to purchase, praised the company and

its president.

“It’s a family-run business. This is the

kind of guy you want here,” Yutzy said.

County Commissioner Mark Forrest said

he is happy to see interest in the Route

142/I-70 area.

“We’re anxious to see that area develop,”

he said.

Martin named Mount Sterling council president

By Andrew Garrett

Staff Writer

Mount Sterling village council held its first regular

meeting of the year on Jan. 13, conducted by newly

elected mayor, Marci Darlington. Addressing council,

audience members, and village residents as a whole,

Darlington said she was looking forward to the challenge

and thanked them for electing her as mayor.

“This is just the beginning, like the new year,” she

The London Rotary Club is pleased

to honor senior Macy Burchett as Madison-Plains

High School’s January Student

of the Month.

Students of the month are selected

by school administrators based on their

academic and extracurricular achievement

and positive character.

Burchett has a 3.909 grade point average

and is a member of the National

Honor Society. Her favorite classes are

Spanish and science. She has been an

active member of the Madison-Plains

High School FFA chapter and takes

pride in raising and showing her livestock.

She earned the distinction of

being named the Madison County Junior

Fair Grand Showman of Showmen. She has also

earned chapter entrepreneurship awards for her breeding

cattle, market beef cattle and market sheep.

Additionally, Burchett has earned three varsity softball

letters while also being a scholar athlete. Last

spring, she earned Ohio Heritage Conference All-

League Honorable Mention honors for softball, as well.

London Rotary Student of the Month: London

Huff goes above and beyond

The London Rotary Club is pleased

to honor senior Darian Huff as London

High School’s January Student of the

Month.

Students of the month are selected

by school administrators based on their

academic and extracurricular achievement

and positive character.

Huff has a 4.04 grade point average

and is ranked 14th in his class. His favorite

class is a College Credit Plus class

in English. He is a three-year Merit

Honor Roll student and serves as president

of the National Honor Society.

Huff has played football for four

years, earning all-CBC second-team defense

honors and earning the Scholar-

Darian Huff

ship, Ethics and Integrity Award the past three years. He

is a four-year member of the wrestling team, winning the

CBC Sportsmanship Award and the Raider Heart Award.

When asked to name a school staff person who inspires

him, Huff named Spanish teacher Janelle Wilson.

“Profe Wilson does so much more than teach Spanish.

She takes the time to grow us as adults and teach

us skills we will use later in life,” he said.

About Huff, Wilson said, “Darian

is an exceptional student not only

inside the classroom but outside, as

well. I’ve had the pleasure of getting

to know Darian over the past three

years and having him in class in

both Spanish 2 and 4. I’ve watched

him grow and progress academically

and personally. He always goes

above and beyond to help his peers

and teachers and has a heart of

gold. I know whatever Darian

chooses to do in the future he will always

give his all, and he will be successful

because of it.”

After graduation, Huff hopes to

attend college to further his education

in theology and psychology. He also plans to continue

his wrestling career. He is the son of Greg and

Andee Huff of London.

The London Rotary Club has a proud history dating

back to 1929. It is a member of Rotary International, a

volunteer organization of 1.2 million business and professional

leaders united worldwide to provide humanitarian

service and help build good will and peace.

London Rotary Student of the Month: Madison-Plains

‘An exceptional young lady’

Macy Burchett

When asked to name a school staff person

who inspires her, Burchett named

social studies teacher Tobi Briggs.

“Mrs. Briggs has always been an inspiration

to me. She is always there to

help and makes me smile. She makes

learning fun,” Burchett said.

Regarding Burchett, Briggs stated,

“Macy is a hard-working, responsible,

and dependable student, as well as an

exceptional young lady. Macy is very

deserving of this award, and I know

that as she moves on from Madison-

Plains, she will be successful in whatever

path she chooses.”

After graduation, Burchett plans to

attend Columbus State Community

College to become a dental hygienist. She is the daughter

of Dave and Becky Burchett.

said.

Darlington wasn’t the only person to find herself in

a new position; newly appointed council member Jordan

“Jay” Pettey was also in attendance.

A relatively recent transplant, Pettey moved to

Mount Sterling with his wife of 13 years and their children

in June 2018. The 33-year-old father of four was

attracted to the village because of its smaller size and

family-based values. He attended Indiana University

where he received his bachelor’s degree in communications

and now works as an operations coordinator for Xerox Corp.

Pettey originally hails from Flint, Mich.

While new faces were present, the long-familiar face of village

solicitor, Mark Pitstick, was not. Pitstick, who had served in the

position for more than 20 years, informed former mayor, Billy Martin,

of his departure on Dec. 10, according to his brief letter of resignation.

The letter gave no reason for his decision, saying only that

he had enjoyed working for the village and its citizens.

The village is accepting applications of qualified candidates for

the solicitor position.

Becky Martin was elected as council president pro tempore,

nudging out Dave Timmons by one vote.

“I’m excited to work with the new mayor,” Martin said. “I hope

to guide each of the committees into having strong, comprehensive

plans before presenting them to council.”

Only one piece of legislation appeared on the agenda—an ordinance

amending the rules of council. The ordinance, which passed

unanimously, makes it possible for the new Planning Commission

and Board of Zoning Appeals to officially conduct business and appear

on council meeting agendas.

Interviews for council seat

The London members of the Madison County Republican Central

Committee (RCC) will meet at 6 p.m. Jan. 30 at London city

hall, 20 S. Walnut St., to interview candidates for a vacant seat on

London city council. London residents interested in filling the position

are asked to send letters of interest to Nicholas Adkins, RCC

chairman, at nickadkinslaw@gmail.com.

Find out how to get free radon test kit

January is National Radon Action

Month, when Ohio residents are urged to

test their homes for radon.

Soil in central Ohio can have high levels

of radon gas. According to the U.S. Environmental

Protection Agency (EPA), radon is

the second leading cause of lung cancer, and

it can seep into homes. To help protect residents,

Madison County Public Health

(MCPH) offers eligible homeowners free test

kits. These easy-to-use home test kits are

available in partnership with Union County

Health Department, www.uchd.net/radon.

“Winter is a great time to test your home,”

said Amber Snyder, MCPH health educator.

“Since windows are not frequently opened

during this time of year, gases are trapped inside

the home, providing

more accurate

radon readings.”

Radon gas results

from the decay

of naturally occurring

uranium found

in nearly all soils.

Radon cannot be

seen, smelled or

tasted, making testing

the only way to

determine if it is in

your home. Radon

can leak into homes

through cracks in

foundations, openings

around sump

pumps and drains,

construction joints

and cracks in walls.

It is estimated

that nearly one home

in every 15 in the

U.S. has an elevated

radon level. Elevated

levels have been

found in all areas of

the country, including

central Ohio.

Radon is measured

in picocuries per liter

and the EPA has

designated as a Zone One area on the EPA’s

radon map,” Snyder said. “This means the

EPA predicts that homes within Madison

County, on average, have higher than recommended

radon levels. Therefore, it is important

all homeowners in our area test for

radon gas.”

According to the University of Toledo’s

Ohio Radon Information System, more than

1,800 radon tests have been done in Madison

County. The average reading from these

tests is 8.0 piC/L, which is above the EPA’s

action level of 4 piC/L. The highest level

found in the county was 104.0 piC/L.

If your home registers high levels of

radon, it can be removed from your home

through a variety of mitigation systems. According

to the EPA, mitigation systems can

cost between $600 and $1,200. The Ohio Department

of Health has a list of licensed

radon contractors at odh.ohio.gov. Click

“Know Our Programs” and search for

“Radon” for help mitigating your home.

Homeowners with a household income

less than $80,500 can get a free test kit at

www.uchd.net/radon. After completing a

short online form, a free test kit will be

mailed within a few weeks. Radon test kits

come with clear instructions and are easy to

use. Test the lowest living level of the home,

then seal the kit and mail it to the certified

laboratory for analysis. Confidential results

are available online a few days later or can

be mailed to the homeowner within approximately

two weeks.

In Memory of Beverly

Feb 6, 1939 – Jan 21, 2011

She was just a teen aged girl from Missouri who fell in love with a G.I. Stationed at

Ft. Leonard Wood. She had quit school during her sophomore year to go to work

to help support her widowed mother and 10 siblings. She was a little short girl

just a little over 100 lbs, but she could pack a wallop. After just knowing him for 6

weeks, her sweetheart was discharged from the army and went 2000 miles away

to seek his fortune. Little did he realize that his fortune was still sitting in Missouri.

After almost a year he saw the light, just like the prodigal son. Over the phone he

proposed to her and she said yes. A wedding was scheduled in Ohio after a Sunday

morning church service, but alas he didn't realize that the license that he got in

Missouri was only good in Missouri. On 9/11/58 they were married in a parsonage

in Missouri and on 9/14 were “married” again in West Jefferson, Ohio. She came as

just a little girl from Missouri but Oh what she became. She only had 10 years of

school, but she had the smarts and common sense to do most anything. Shortly

after the wedding she told her husband, “Don't you ever hit me, you have to go to

sleep sometime and I have an iron skillet.” She was a worker. It was a one day

honeymoon and then back to work. Two years later she presented her husband

with a beautiful daughter, three years later another one.

She quit work until the children were in school, and then she was always home

for them. She raised the children as her husband was always involved in something

that took his time, and she did a great job. When her oldest daughter became

pregnant, she said I hope it's a girl, I could never love a little boy. On February 22,

1995 Jake was born, she changed over night, they were inseparable from birth to

the time of her death 15 years later. She was tight with her money, a garage saler

and trash picker, and knew her antiques. She saved her family a lot of money and

acquired a number of valuable antiques.

She was opinionated, and spoke her mind. You either liked her or didn't. You always

knew where you stood with her. If she liked you she'd give you the shirt off

of her back, she was always for the under privileged and down trodden. Her

outspokenness must not have affected too many people her funeral was one of

the largest seen in years. She was a great organizer, she organized and would feed

over 100 people at her church dinners. She was known as “The flower Lady of West

Jefferson.” For years she planted and maintained flowers along Main Street. She

and her husband purchased a 155 year old house that was falling down, and she

made a show place of it with her flowers. In 2003 she was found with breast cancer,

it never slowed her down.

After a mastectomy and chemo it looked like it was licked. Then in 2005 it

returned, more chemo and radiation. Some thought that the radiation would slow

her down, but it seemed to energizer her and she would come back and work all

day in the flowers. At the James Cancer Hospital she got the nick name of the

Energizer Bunny. In 2008 the cancer had gone to her lungs. She was a fighter,

where ever she was she inspired people, and influenced a lot of people by her

faith. She gave hope to people who were fighting the same battle. Her quote was

“I've had a good life, I know where I'm going and I'm ready to go.” On January 21,

2011 she got her reward.

EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE.

NO EXCEPTIONS.

Some people think that choosing a modest memorial means

sacrificing service. Our commitment to excellent service allows us

to say that no matter what kind of a memorial you have in mind,

we’ll provide you with the best service available, bar none.

GODDEN

Faith Irene Craig Godden, 87, of West Jefferson passed away on

Jan. 9, 2020, at Kobacker House Hospice. She was born on Dec. 17,

1932, in Alton, the oldest daughter of Charles and Mildred Daniels

Craig. Faith grew up in West Jefferson, graduated in the Class of

1950 and married her loving husband, Willis C. “Red” Godden, on

Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, 1953. A couple years later, they purchased

a farm just north of Lilly Chapel and remained there their entire

lives. Faith was a homemaker and a farmer's wife, managing the

home and farm as the businesses they were, making a tight budget

stretch to allow the family to never worry nor be without. She was

an avid gardener, seamstress, excellent cook and very talented

painter. Faith’s community outreach throughout the years included

4-H advisor, women’s group at church, election poll volunteer, supporter

of the Jefferson Township Volunteer Fire Department and

so many others. After her children were through college, she shared

her painting talent by teaching classes for years throughout Madison

and Franklin counties. Faith was a well-known and respected

teacher for many years and was very active in the National Decorative

Painting Society and the Heart of Ohio Tole (HOOT) organizations,

serving on the HOOT executive board as president and

various other positions for many years. The highlight of each year

was when she traveled with her HOOT friends to their national convention,

having more fun telling tales and creating memories than

attending the actual conventions. Faith was preceded in death by:

her husband, Willis C. “Red” Godden; her parents, Charles Craig

and Mildred Daniels Craig; granddaughter, Amie Sickles Morgan;

and sister-in-law and brother-in-law, Ruby and Arthur Farley. She

Press Release – For Immediate Release

Madison County Ohio Emergency Management Agency

5-Year Mitigation Plan Update

The Madison County Hazard Mitigation Committee has completed the Hazard

Mitigation 5-Year Planning Process. A series of four planning meetings were held

from August 2019 through November 2019. Madison County is required by the

Federal Emergency Management Agency to review and revise its plan to reflect

progress in local mitigation efforts and changes in priorities in order to continue

to be eligible for mitigation project grant funding. The purpose of hazard

mitigation planning is to reduce or eliminate the long-term risk to human life

and property from hazards. It has been demonstrated that hazard mitigation is

most effective when based on an inclusive, comprehensive, long-term plan that

is developed before a disaster occurs.

The initial draft of the 2019 Plan Updates can be reviewed online after January

27, 2020 at the Madison County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) website

at www.co.madison.oh.us or can be viewed at the Madison County Emergency

Management office located at 271 Elm Street, London, Ohio. Please call 740-852-

4200 to schedule an appointment to review the initial draft of the 2019 Plan Updates.

Comments, suggestions or questions regarding the plan updates are

encouraged. Comments or questions can be submitted or emailed to the Madison

County EMA at the following email address: dsims@co.madison.oh.us.

Comments, suggestions or questions will be accepted in writing by the Madison

County Hazard Mitigation Committee through February 10, 2020.

A public open house will be held to receive input or answer questions regarding

the updated plan on Thursday, January 30, 2020 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM at the

Madison County Emergency Management office located at 271 Elm Street,
