By Andrew Garrett<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Mount Sterling village council voted on<br />

Feb. 11 to enter into a new contract with<br />

Rumpke for management of the village’s<br />

solid waste. The prior contract with<br />

Rumpke had been in effect since Dec. 27,<br />

2010.<br />

Per the new two-year contract, Rumpke<br />

will provide weekly solid waste collection<br />

and removal (including yard waste and<br />

homes, apartments, and condominium<br />

households of four units or less. For<br />

the first year, households will be billed<br />

quarterly in advance. The monthly cost will<br />

be $19.59 for unlimited solid waste removal<br />

and $3.50 per 95-gallon trash container. In<br />

2021, the monthly solid waste removal fee<br />

will go to $19.98; the monthly cost per trash<br />

Following your art means following your heart<br />

By Theresa Hennis<br />

Staff Writer<br />

What do you dream of for your future?<br />

That was the theme for the <strong>2020</strong> Kurt Lattimer Aspiring Artist<br />

Award competition. A total of 22 seniors from high schools in <strong>Madison</strong><br />

County turned their dreams into art in hopes of winning cash<br />

prizes.<br />

All of the contest entries are on display through March 1 at<br />

Gallery on High, 5 E. High St., London.<br />

During an opening reception on Feb. 7, the award’s founders—<br />

Tony Reeder and Kim Lattimer Reeder and Mick and Natalie Harris–along<br />

with members of the London Visual Arts Guild<br />

congratulated this year’s winners—Aubrey Cline and Caleb Herrli<br />

from London High School and Mason Smith from Tolles Career &<br />

Technical Center and Jonathan Alder High School.<br />

The award commemorates the life of Kim Lattimer Reeder’s son,<br />

Kurt Lattimer. Kurt, whose passion was art, passed away in May<br />

2017. Presented annually, the award is meant to inspire students<br />

who are going into the field of art or who are interested in improving<br />

their art skills after graduation.<br />

“Follow your art and stick with it. If you love art, always chase<br />

that love and keep it in the forefront,” Tony Reeder said during the<br />

prize announcements.<br />

Kim Lattimer Reeder holding the piece submitted by second-place finisher Caleb Herrli, third-place finisher<br />

Mason Smith, first-place finisher Aubrey Cline, and Natalie and Mick Harris.<br />

Aubrey Cline won first place and $1,000<br />

for her entry titled, “Picturing Me.” The<br />

piece reflects what she imagines she will do<br />

in the future—travel, write and create art.<br />

She also plans to pursue a business degree<br />

with a minor in art. Her advice to future<br />

competitors: “Don’t overthink the process.<br />

Keep practicing, and take every critique you<br />

receive to become better.”<br />

Caleb Herrli snagged second place and $250 for his entry titled,<br />

“Sick Metal Arc Welding.”<br />

“My love for skateboarding and welding inspired my art piece.<br />

I’m taking a mechanical principles class, and I enjoy the welding.<br />

I’m going to go on to Hobart Welding School in Troy, Ohio.”<br />

Herrli’s advice to future competitors: “Explore ways to make art<br />

out of what you love to do.”<br />

Third place and $100 went to Mason Smith, whose entry, “Hold<br />

My Heart,” features a human hand holding a human heart.<br />

“It was kind of a play on words,” he said. “I want to touch people’s<br />

hearts in a loving way to build relationships.”<br />

Smith plans to study interior design in college. His advice to future<br />

competitors: “Don’t doubt yourself. I just started creating art<br />

last year. Don’t give up too quickly.”<br />

Following your art means following your heart, and Kim Lattimer<br />

Reeder’s heart for honoring her son’s legacy is evident in her<br />

desire to welcome more students to the competition and to the art<br />

community in <strong>Madison</strong> County.<br />

“Upcoming art students, come on out and show us what you can<br />

do. You’ll get to meet other artists and make a connection and<br />

learn,” she said.<br />

Each of the students who entered the competition received a oneyear<br />

membership to the London Visual Arts Guild.<br />

Gallery on High is open 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Thursday and Sunday<br />

and 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday. Admission is always free.<br />

meaning no funds will come out of Mount Sterling’s coffers, Drake<br />

said. Building permit fees and the like will go to the village of West<br />

Jefferson for services rendered. Working with West Jefferson’s inspector<br />

is a sensible choice because he already provides his services<br />

to multiple municipalities, Drake said.<br />

“(He) covers darn near most of <strong>Madison</strong> County at this point,”<br />

Drake said, adding that through the agreement with West Jefferson,<br />

Mount Sterling is gaining the expertise of a nine-person staff<br />

it cannot afford at this point.<br />

Drake noted that West Jefferson will be responsible for the inspection<br />

process only. Authority over zoning and the constitution of<br />

building code will remain under the control of the village of Mt.<br />

Sterling. Mount Sterling's Board of Zoning Appeals and Building<br />

Commission remain intact and operational.

Using escape room concept to engage students<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> Editor<br />

You’re given a scenario: You and your<br />

team must free passengers from a train<br />

loaded with explosives before it arrives at<br />

the station. Or you’re tracking a kidnapper,<br />

but then you’re caught. Or you’re tasked<br />

with finding stolen artwork.<br />

Whatever the scenario, it takes place in<br />

one or more rooms. You must find clues and<br />

solve puzzles to complete your mission and,<br />

in turn, escape from the room(s)—all before<br />

time runs out.<br />

This is the basic concept behind escape<br />

rooms, an entertainment option that first<br />

became popular in the United States about<br />

15 years ago. Now, educators at Jonathan<br />

Alder Local Schools are using the concept to<br />

engage students in learning.<br />

Megan Brar, a seventh-grade social studies<br />

teacher at Jonathan Alder Junior High,<br />

recently staged an escape room exercise centered<br />

on the assassination of Roman dictator,<br />

Julius Caesar. She planted clues around<br />

her classroom and in the school hallways.<br />

From the clues, students had to piece together<br />

the circumstances leading up to Caesar’s<br />

death and write a police report.<br />

“It’s great. You give them clues on a topic,<br />

then they run with it. They take responsibility<br />

for their own learning,” Brar said.<br />

The concept also reveals leadership skills<br />

some students might not have known they<br />

had. Brar said she has watched students<br />

take the reins in these scenarios who otherwise<br />

wouldn’t in a more traditional educational<br />

setting.<br />

Seventh-grader Annie Saxour likes escape<br />

room challenges for a variety of reasons.<br />

For one, you’re not stuck in a chair<br />

taking notes, she said, and it appeals to all<br />

sorts of mindsets—from those who like competition<br />

(a reward awaits the team that fin-<br />

American Dairy Queen Corp. plans to<br />

bring a DQ Grill & Chill restaurant to London.<br />

Set to open in March, the restaurant<br />

will be located at 365 Lafayette St.<br />

The location is locally owned and operated<br />

by restaurateur Keith Chambers and<br />

London residents Chad Wheeler and Brian<br />

Wheeler. The trio has 120 years of combined<br />

experience as operators in the restaurant<br />

industry.<br />

More than $1.3 million is being invested<br />

in the London store, which will bring more<br />

than 40 full- and part-time job opportunities<br />

to the area.<br />

The London DQ Grill & Chill will offer signature<br />

DQ soft-served favorites, along with<br />

made-to-order lunch and dinner options. In<br />

addition to indoor seating, the restaurant will<br />

feature a covered outdoor patio.<br />

“The DQ brand is constantly creating<br />

new opportunities for its local communities<br />

with job creation and next-level customer<br />

service,” Chambers said. “I was drawn to<br />

the brand’s motto, ‘Because happy tastes<br />

Under the watchful and somewhat amused eye of seventh-grader<br />

Joe Kennedy, Jonathan Alder school board members Bill McCartney<br />

and Christine Blacka use a special light to reveal a word highlighted<br />

in invisible ink. The word was a clue in a challenge<br />

presented at the Feb. 10 school board meeting to illustrate the<br />

concept of escape rooms as a teaching tool.<br />

ishes first) to those who are “school smart” and like to apply what<br />

they know to a task.<br />

“Everyone is engaged, and there isn’t one person doing all the<br />

work,” Saxour added.<br />

Teamwork and communication are central to the escape room<br />

concept, said seventh-graders Rebecca Magginis and Joe Kennedy.<br />

“Those skills are important in adulthood, so why not start now?”<br />

Magginis said.<br />

Dana Wright, Jonathan Alder’s district librarian, introduced the<br />

escape room instructional concept to fellow staff members after<br />

learning about it at a conference a few years ago. She is thrilled to<br />

see it catching hold as a teaching tool in the district.<br />

Currently, Shelley Conley, the junior high librarian, and Jennifer<br />

Danner, a seventh-grade English and language arts teacher,<br />

are developing an escape room challenge centered on the book,<br />

good,’ and strive to create an environment for community members<br />

to interact and enjoy DQ favorites.”<br />

Chambers has been with the Dairy Queen brand for over four<br />

years, along with the Wheelers opening seven locations in central<br />

and southern Ohio.<br />

Established eight decades ago, the Dairy Queen system has<br />

more than 7,000 locations worldwide.<br />

“Fever 1793” by LaurieHalse Anderson, about the deadly yellow<br />

fever outbreak in Philadelphia in 1793.<br />

“Students will go back in time and become historians and scientists<br />

to save the people of Philadelphia from the epidemic,” Conley<br />

said of the scenario.<br />

The creative goal with these set-ups, Conley said, is to hit on<br />

multiple subject areas. The Julius Caesar challenge combined history<br />

and, thanks to clues related to Shakespeare’s play about the<br />

dictator, literature. The yellow fever challenge will do the same,<br />

with some science thrown in the mix.<br />

Many course changes in store at London Schools<br />

By Josephine Birdsell<br />

Staff Writer<br />

The London school board is looking to approve updates<br />

to several middle school and high school courses.<br />

On Feb. 11, the board considered a proposal to add<br />

41 new courses to the curriculum at the high school and<br />

retire 18 older courses.<br />

The board also considered a proposal to replace the<br />

middle school’s participation in Power of the Pen, a creative<br />

writing competition, with Battle of the Books, a<br />

competitive reading competition. Also possible at the<br />

middle school are the addition of three lab activities and<br />

retirement of one lab activity.<br />

The board will vote on the changes at their next<br />

meeting on March 10.<br />

Board members are excited about updates.<br />

“At the high school, we’ve really looked at how we’re<br />

presenting our arts program. So, (we’re adding) a little<br />

bit more detail in some different mediums, which we’re<br />

excited about,” said Dr. Lou Kramer, district superintendent.<br />

Proposed for the high school are 12 new English and<br />

language arts courses, 12 agriculture, business and<br />

technology courses, 10 math courses, five STEM (science,<br />

technology, engineering and math) courses, one<br />

science course and one psychology course.<br />

Help to hire workers in recovery<br />

On the chopping block at the high school are four standard literature<br />

courses—two at the high school level and two at the college<br />

level—as well as two advanced placement math courses, two financial<br />

literacy courses, one health course and one STEM course.<br />

The core subject areas at both schools will remain the same, and<br />

no changes in funding for any subject areas are prescribed in the<br />

course guidelines.<br />

“It’s reallocating our resources that we currently have,” Kramer<br />

said.<br />

The Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) announced<br />

on Feb. 4 that Clark, Greene and <strong>Madison</strong> counties<br />

will join a BWC program that incentivizes employers<br />

to hire workers in recovery from substance use disorder.<br />

Under BWC’s Substance Use Recovery and Workplace<br />

Safety Program (SUR-WSP), the agency will pay<br />

for drug screenings and special training for managers<br />

to help local employers hire, better manage, and retain<br />

workers recovering from addiction to opioids and other<br />

dangerous substances.<br />

“This is about workplace safety and meeting the<br />

challenges Governor (Mike) DeWine outlined in his RecoveryOhio<br />

initiative,” said Stephanie McCloud, BWC<br />

administrator/CEO, at a press conference at <strong>Madison</strong><br />

County Municipal Courthouse in London.<br />

“We know when workers in recovery get a job, they<br />

are more likely to stay on a successful path. In addition,<br />

the special training managers receive emphasizes<br />

safety and appropriate strategies that benefit the<br />

worker and employer both.”<br />

SUR-WSP launched in October 2018 in three pilot<br />

counties: Montgomery, Ross and Scioto. DeWine expanded<br />

the program in BWC’s latest budget, pledging<br />

up to $15 million over <strong>2020</strong> and 2021 to include nine<br />

more counties, including Clark, Greene and <strong>Madison</strong>.<br />

Though funded by BWC, the program is administered<br />

by local Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental<br />

Health (ADAMH) boards or boards similar in function<br />

and mission. The Mental Health & Recovery Board of<br />

Clark, Greene & <strong>Madison</strong> Counties (MHRB) will lead<br />

efforts in its jurisdiction.<br />

“The Mental Health & Recovery Board of Clark,<br />

Greene & <strong>Madison</strong> Counties is thrilled to join this effort,”<br />

said Greta Mayer, chief executive officer at<br />

MHRB. “Our board is investing heavily in workplace<br />

and workforce efforts, because we know that it is beneficial<br />

for both employers and people in recovery.”<br />

MHRB will identify eligible employers and employees,<br />

disperse funding, and measure results. BWC funds<br />

cover reimbursement for pre-employment, random and<br />

reasonable suspicion drug testing, as well as training<br />

for managers and supervisors to help them better manage<br />

a workforce that includes individuals in recovery.<br />

Ohio is consistently near the top in the nation for accidental<br />

drug overdose deaths, coming in at No. 2 in<br />

2017 with 46.3 deaths per 100,000 residents, right after<br />

West Virginia at 57.8, according to the federal Centers<br />

for Disease Control and Prevention.<br />

National data shows the opioid crisis has lowered the<br />

labor force participation rate. In Ohio, opioid addiction,<br />

abuse and overdose deaths cost the state between $6.6<br />

billion and $8.8 billion annually, according to a 2017 report<br />

from the C. William Swank Program in Rural-<br />

Urban Policy at The Ohio State University.<br />

The Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) is expanding its worker recovery program to Clark, Greene<br />

and <strong>Madison</strong> counties. The announcement was made on Feb. 4 in a press conference held at the <strong>Madison</strong><br />

County Municipal Courthouse. On hand were: (front row, from left) Lori Dodge-Dorsey, director of <strong>Madison</strong><br />

County Job and Family Services; <strong>Madison</strong> County Commissioner Mark Forrest; Stephanie McCloud, BWC administrator/CEO;<br />

Greta Mayer, CEO of the Mental Health & Recovery Board of Clark, Greene & <strong>Madison</strong> Counties;<br />

Eric Mata, a Springfield resident who shared his recovery and employment story; (back row) London Mayor<br />

Patrick Closser; London Police Chief Glenn Nicol; <strong>Madison</strong> County commissioners David Hunter and Tony<br />

Xenikis; and <strong>Madison</strong> County Administrator Rob Slane.

CROP INSURANCE MADE<br />

FOR FARMERS.<br />

Dr. Lou Kramer (second from left), superintendent of London City Schools, pours liquid<br />

nitrogen into a bottle held by London Mayor Patrick Closser (far right). COSI representatives<br />

Stephen White (left) and Josh Sarver (second from right) oversaw the demonstration,<br />

which took place at London’s Rib & Jazz Fest last summer. The event was held<br />

in conjunction with COSI’s presentation of a STEM Star Award to Kramer. This spring,<br />

with help from COSI, the city of London will host a Science Extravaganza.<br />

London sets May 8 for<br />

Science Extravaganza<br />

OFFERED BY A COOPERATIVE OWNED BY FARMERS.<br />

Our crop insurance specialists understand the risks your operation faces are<br />

more than numbers on a spreadsheet. They’re real. Because our cooperative<br />

is owned by farmers, who understand your farm’s unique needs. Our team of<br />

non-commissioned agents will tailor a plan that suits your operation, so you<br />

can focus on maximizing opportunity instead of simply managing risk.<br />

How does road salt melt ice? What does<br />

it take to create computer code for video<br />

games? What goes into the process of brewing<br />

beer?<br />

Find out the answer to these questions<br />

and so many more when the city of London<br />

hosts a Science Extravaganza from 5 to 9<br />

p.m. May 8 at city hall, 20 S. Walnut St.<br />

Last year, the Center of Science and Industry<br />

(COSI) chose London and five other<br />

cities to host events leading up to COSI’s<br />

Big Science Celebration set for May 9 in<br />

Columbus. The purpose of the multi-county<br />

effort is to get central Ohio folks, especially<br />

youths, excited about careers in STEM—science,<br />

technology, engineering and math.<br />

Amy Rees, who works in the city’s administration<br />

department, is coordinating<br />

London’s event. She is recruiting a couple<br />

dozen businesses, agencies and school<br />

groups to set up booths in the hallways and<br />

meeting rooms at city hall. Demonstrations<br />

and hands-on experiments will be the name<br />

of the game.<br />

“We’re excited to show the community, especially<br />

kids, how science is used every day,”<br />

Rees said. “When I started thinking about<br />

who to call to be a part of the event, I realized<br />

that just about everybody in every profession<br />

uses some kind of science, like a veterinarian<br />

who microchips pets, for example.”<br />

Rees is happy with the response she has<br />

received so far from willing participants.<br />

The city fire department is working up a<br />

demonstration about fire suppression and<br />

thermal imaging. The police department<br />

plans to run visitors through the fingerprinting<br />

process. The competitive e-sports<br />

and robotics teams from London High<br />

School and London Middle School are signed<br />

up, along with other groups from the<br />

schools. The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification<br />

and Investigation, based in London,<br />

is on the list of exhibitors.<br />

Additionally, various businesses have<br />

signed on to conduct experiments related to<br />

fitness, nutrition, agriculture, electricity<br />

and more. Of course, COSI will play a big<br />

part in the day, offering up their own experiments<br />

and demonstrations.<br />

“This will be a great opportunity to bring<br />

STEM into our community for kids who<br />

can’t make it to COSI or can’t get there as<br />

often as they would like,” said London<br />

Mayor Pat Closser.<br />

London’s Science Extravaganza is a family-friendly<br />

event. Admission is free. Rees is<br />

lining up food concessions. A beer garden,<br />

complete with a brewing education component,<br />

will be available to adults.<br />

The other cities COSI tapped to host science<br />

celebrations are Marysville, Delaware,<br />

Circleville, Heath and Pickerington.<br />

Check status with ‘Where’s My Refund’ tool<br />

Just as each tax return is unique and individual, so is each taxpayer’s<br />

refund. There are a few things taxpayers should keep in<br />

mind if they are waiting on their refund but hear or see on social<br />

media that other taxpayers have already received theirs.<br />

Different factors can affect the timing of a taxpayer’s refund<br />

after the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) receives the return. Also,<br />

remember to take into consideration the time it takes for the financial<br />

institution to post the refund to the taxpayer’s account or to receive<br />

a check in the mail.<br />

Even though the IRS issues most refunds in less than 21 days,<br />

some tax returns require additional review and take longer to<br />

process than others. This may be necessary when a return has errors,<br />

is incomplete or is affected by identity theft or fraud. The IRS<br />

will contact taxpayers by mail when more information is needed to<br />

process a return.<br />

Choosing electronic filing and direct deposit for refunds remains<br />

the fastest and safest way to file an accurate income tax return and<br />

receive a refund. The IRS expects about 90 percent of individual<br />

tax returns will be prepared electronically using tax<br />

software.<br />

The IRS reminds taxpayers that, by law, the IRS<br />

cannot issue refunds claiming the Earned Income Tax<br />

Credit (EITC) or the Additional Child Tax Credit<br />

(ACTC) before mid-<strong>February</strong>. This applies to the entire<br />

refund, even the portion not associated with the EITC<br />

or ACTC. The IRS expects most EITC/ACTC related refunds<br />

to be available in taxpayer bank accounts or on<br />

debit cards by the first week of March, if the taxpayer<br />

chose direct deposit and there are no other issues with<br />

the tax return.<br />

After refunds leave the IRS, it takes additional time<br />

for them to be processed and for financial institutions<br />

to accept and deposit the refunds to bank accounts and<br />

products. The IRS reminds taxpayers many financial institutions<br />

do not process payments on weekends or holidays,<br />

which can affect when refunds reach taxpayers.<br />

Refund information will generally be available<br />

within 24 hours after the IRS acknowledges receipt of<br />

an electronically filed return on the “Where’s My Refund?”<br />

tool on IRS.gov and the IRS2Go phone app.<br />

These tools will be updated with projected deposit dates<br />

for most early EITC and ACTC refund filers by Feb. 22,<br />

so those filers will not see an update to their refund status<br />

date on “Where’s My Refund?” through their software<br />

packages until then. The IRS, tax preparers and<br />

tax software will not have additional information on refund<br />

dates. “Where’s My Refund?” is the best way to<br />

check the status of a refund.<br />

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has launched a<br />

new and improved Tax Withholding Estimator, designed<br />

to help workers target the refund they want by<br />

having the right amount of federal income tax taken out<br />

of their pay.<br />

The Tax Withholding Estimator, now available on<br />

IRS.gov, incorporates the<br />

changes from the redesigned<br />

“Form W-4,<br />

Employee’s Withholding<br />

Certificate,” that employees<br />

can fill out and<br />

give to their employers<br />

this year.<br />

The IRS urges everyone<br />

to see if they need to<br />

adjust their withholding<br />

by using the Tax Withholding<br />

Estimator to perform<br />

a paycheck<br />

checkup. If an adjustment<br />

is needed, the Tax<br />

Withholding Estimator<br />

gives specific recommendations on how to fill out their<br />

employer’s online Form W-4 or provides the PDF form<br />

with key parts filled out.<br />

To help workers more effectively adjust their withholding,<br />

the improved Tax Withholding Estimator features<br />

a customized refund slider that allows users to<br />

choose the refund amount they prefer from a range of<br />

different refund amounts. The exact refund range<br />

shown is customized based on the tax information entered<br />

by that user.<br />

Based on the refund amount selected, the Tax Withholding<br />

Estimator will give the worker specific recommendations<br />

on how to fill out their W-4. This new<br />

feature allows users who seek either larger refunds at<br />

the end of the year or more money on their paychecks<br />

throughout the year to have just the right amount withheld<br />

to meet their preference.<br />

The new Tax Withholding Estimator also features<br />

several other enhancements, including one allowing<br />

anyone who expects to receive a bonus to indicate<br />

whether tax will be withheld. In addition, improvements<br />

added last summer continue to be available, including<br />

mobile-friendly design, handling of pension<br />

income, Social Security<br />

benefits and self-employment<br />

tax.<br />

Starting in <strong>2020</strong>, income<br />

tax withholding is<br />

no longer based on an<br />

employee’s marital status<br />

and withholding allowances,<br />

tied to the<br />

value of the personal exemption.<br />

Instead, income<br />

tax withholding is<br />

generally based on the<br />

worker’s expected filing<br />

status and standard deduction<br />

for the year. In<br />

addition, workers can<br />

choose to have itemized deductions, the Child Tax<br />

Credit and other tax benefits reflected in their withholding<br />

for the year.<br />

It is important for people with more than one job at<br />

a time (including families in which both spouses work)<br />

to adjust their withholding to avoid having too little<br />

withheld. Using the Tax Withholding Estimator is the<br />

most accurate way to do this. As in the past, employees<br />

can also choose to have an employer withhold an additional<br />

flat-dollar amount each pay period to cover, for<br />

example, income they receive from the gig economy,<br />

self-employment, or other sources that is not subject to<br />

withholding.<br />

Estimator and the redesigned <strong>2020</strong> Form W-4,<br />

IRS launches ‘Identity eft Central’ web page<br />

On Feb. 3, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS)<br />

launched Identity Theft Central, designed to improve<br />

online access to information on identity theft and data<br />

security protection for taxpayers, tax professionals and<br />

businesses.<br />

Located at irs.gov/identitytheft, Identity Theft Central<br />

is available 24/7. It is a resource on how to report<br />

identity theft, how taxpayers can protect themselves<br />

against phishing, online scams and more.<br />

Improving awareness and outreach are hallmarks of<br />

initiatives to combat identity theft coordinated by the<br />

IRS, state tax agencies and the nation's tax industry,<br />

all working in partnership under the Security Summit<br />

banner.<br />

Since 2015, Security Summit partners have made<br />

substantial progress in the fight against tax-related<br />

identity theft. But thieves are still constantly looking<br />

for ways to steal the identities of individuals, tax professionals<br />

and businesses in order to file fraudulent tax<br />

returns for refunds.<br />

The partnership has taken a number of steps to help<br />

educate and improve protections for taxpayers, tax professionals<br />

and businesses. As part of this effort, the IRS<br />

has redesigned the information into a new, streamlined<br />

page, “Identity Theft Central,” to help people get information<br />

they need on identity theft, scams and schemes.<br />

From this page, people can get specific information<br />

including:<br />

• “Taxpayer Guide to Identity Theft,” including what<br />

to do if someone becomes a victim of identity theft;<br />

• “Identity Theft Information for Tax Professionals,”<br />

including knowing responsibilities under the law; and<br />

• “Identity Theft Information for Businesses,” including how to<br />

recognize the signs of identity theft.<br />

The page also features videos on key topics that can be used by<br />

taxpayers or partner groups. The new page includes a video message<br />

from IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig, warning signs for<br />

phishing email scams (a common tactic used for identity theft),and<br />

steps for people to protect their computer and phone.<br />

Tax professionals and others may want to bookmark Identity<br />

Theft Central and check their specific guidance periodically for updates.<br />

This is part of an ongoing effort by the IRS to share identity<br />

theft-related information with the public. The IRS continues to look<br />

for ways to raise awareness and improve education and products<br />

related to identity theft for taxpayers and the tax professional community.<br />

Tax forms specially designed for senior citizens<br />

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) wants seniors to to file Form 1040-SR whether they are working, not<br />

know about the availability of a new tax form, Form working or retired. The form allows income reporting<br />

1040-SR, featuring larger print and a standard deduction<br />

chart with a goal of making it easier for older ment income, Social Security and distributions from<br />

from other sources common to seniors such as invest-<br />

Americans to read and use.<br />

qualified retirement plans, annuities or similar deferred-payment<br />

arrangements.<br />

The Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 required the IRS<br />

to create a tax form for seniors. Taxpayers age 65 or Seniors can use Form 1040-SR to file their 2019 federal<br />

income tax return, which is due on April 15, <strong>2020</strong>.<br />

older now have the option to use “Form 1040-SR, U.S.<br />

Tax Return for Seniors.” Form 1040-SR, when printed, All lines and checkboxes on Form 1040-SR mirror the<br />

features larger font and better readability.<br />

Form 1040, and both forms use all the same attached<br />

Taxpayers born before Jan. 2, 1955, have the option schedules and forms. The revised 2019 Instructions<br />

Revision in tax-exempt form<br />

As part of an ongoing effort to improve service for the<br />

tax-exempt community, the Internal Revenue Service<br />

(IRS) has revised Form 1023 to allow electronic filing<br />

for the first time starting later this month.<br />

To help charities apply for Section 501(c)(3) tax-exempt<br />

status, the IRS has revised “Form 1023, Application<br />

for Recognition of Exemption Under Section 501(c)(3) of<br />

the Internal Revenue Code,” and its instructions.<br />

“Filing electronically reduces errors, and we believe<br />

this will help provide a smoother application process for<br />

those seeking tax exemption,” said Tammy Ripperda,<br />

Commissioner of the IRS Tax Exempt and Government<br />

Entities division. “We believe this change will help with<br />

application processing time and help with our wider efforts<br />

to improve our work with the tax-exempt community.”<br />

The IRS expects the electronic Form 1023 benefits<br />

to mirror those realized when Form 1023-EZ went online<br />

in 2014. IRS statistics show the 1023-EZ improved<br />

application processing time for both the Form 1023 and<br />

1023-EZ while maintaining similar approval and rejection<br />

rates between the two forms.<br />

As of Jan. 31, <strong>2020</strong>, applications for recognition of<br />

exemption on Form 1023 must be submitted electronically<br />

online at Pay.gov. The IRS will provide a 90-day<br />

grace period during which it will continue to accept<br />

paper versions of Form 1023 (Rev. 12-2017).<br />

The user fee for Form 1023 remains $600 for <strong>2020</strong>.<br />

Applicants must pay the fee through Pay.gov when submitting<br />

the form. Payment can be made directly from a<br />

bank account or by credit or debit card.<br />

Updates about Form 1023 can be obtained by subscribing<br />

to “Exempt Organizations Update,” a free e-<br />

newsletter from the IRS Exempt Organizations office.<br />

The update provides information on tax policy, services<br />

and information that's important to tax-exempt organizations<br />

including:<br />

• news releases from the IRS related to exempt organizations;<br />

• new forms, guidance and other publications;<br />

• changes and additions to the IRS Charities and<br />

Nonprofits webpage; and<br />

• upcoming IRS training and outreach events.<br />

Additional information on how to apply for IRS<br />

recognition of tax-exempt status is available:<br />

• “Applying for Tax-Exempt Status” on IRS.gov;<br />

• “Form 1023 Electronic Filing Overview” presentation<br />

on StayExempt.irs.gov; and<br />

• “Applying for 501(c)(3) Status” course on StayExempt.irs.gov<br />

cover both Forms 1040 and 1040-SR.<br />

Eligible taxpayers can use Form 1040-SR whether they plan to<br />

itemize or take the standard deduction. Taxpayers who itemize deductions<br />

can file Form 1040-SR with a “Schedule A, Itemized Deductions”<br />

when filing their return. For those taking the standard<br />

deduction, Form 1040-SR includes a chart listing the standard deduction<br />

amounts, making it easier to calculate. It also ensures seniors<br />

are aware of the increased standard deduction for taxpayers<br />

age 65 and older.<br />

Married people filing a joint return can use the Form 1040-SR,<br />

regardless of whether one or both spouses are age 65 or older or retired.<br />

Both the 1040 and the 1040-SR use the same “building block”<br />

approach introduced last year that can be supplemented with additional<br />

Schedules 1, 2 and 3 as needed. Many taxpayers with basic<br />

tax situations can file Form 1040 or 1040-SR with no additional<br />

schedules.<br />

Staffing to meet special education needs at WJ<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Jefferson Local Schools provides 263 students with special education<br />

services. Among those services are speech and language<br />

pathology, intervention, occupational therapy, and adapted physical<br />

education. The district employs a wide variety of specialists to provide<br />

those services.<br />

According to department staffers Jennifer Merb and Joe Galore,<br />

during the 2018-2019 school year, 53 students in pre-school through<br />

high school were newly identified as having special needs. From the<br />

beginning of the current school year through January, 55 students<br />

were newly identified as having special needs.<br />

“At Norwood (Elementary), intervention specialists can have (no<br />

more than) 16 total students. The number is determined by disability<br />

categories,” Merb said in a presentation to the school board on Feb. 10.<br />

The number is the same at the middle school but jumps to a maximum<br />

caseload of 24 students at the high school. The ratio of<br />

youngest to oldest student in a resource classroom is 60 months,<br />

and 48 months for an emotionally challenged designated classroom.<br />

“The state pays very close attention to that (ratio),” Merb said.<br />

At Norwood Elementary and West Jefferson Middle School, four<br />

inclusion intervention specialists assist students in mainstream<br />

This coming Monday, <strong>February</strong> 17, <strong>2020</strong> is<br />

President's Day here in America—a day set aside to<br />

honor two of our most famous Presidents: George<br />

Washington, “The Father of Our Country,” and Abraham<br />

Lincoln, “The Great Emancipator.” Let’s take time on<br />

that day to be thankful not only for these two truly great<br />

Americans, but for all of our leaders who have helped to<br />

Additionally, a pair of early childhood intervention specialists<br />

work at Norwood, and one consortium resource intervention<br />

specialist covers middle school and high school.<br />

Two inclusion intervention specialists and two resource<br />

intervention specialists work at the high school.<br />

While special education students can get a waiver for<br />

end-of-course and third-grade reading evaluations, that<br />

does not exempt them from taking the actual tests.<br />

“An IEP (Individual Education Plan) can exempt a<br />

student from not passing,” Merb said. “They have to<br />

take the test but are exempt from the consequences.<br />

There are very strict criteria.”<br />

For every student exempted, a notation is made on<br />

the district’s state report card.<br />

RESOLUTION 20-021 AMENDING THE BOUNDARIES OF THE WEST JEFFERSON NORTHERN COMMUNITY REINVESTMENT AREA TO INCLUDE ADDITIONAL PROPERTY<br />

AND AMENDING THE EXEMPTION THAT CAN BE NEGOTIATED WITHIN THE WEST JEFFERSON NORTHERN COMMUNITY REINVESTMENT AREA<br />

WHEREAS, this Council desires to continue to pursue all reasonable and<br />

legitimate incentive measures to assist and encourage development in specific<br />

areas of the Village of West Jefferson (the “Village”) that have not enjoyed<br />

sufficient reinvestment in remodeling or new construction; and<br />

WHEREAS, to encourage that development, the Village, pursuant to Resolution<br />

No. 07-028, adopted by this Council on May 21, 2007 (the “CRA Resolution”),<br />

established the area specified in the CRA Resolution as the West<br />

Jefferson Northern Community Reinvestment Area (the “CRA”) under the authority<br />

of Ohio Revised Code (“R.C.”) Sections 3735.65 through 3735.70 (the<br />

“CRA Act”); and<br />

WHEREAS, to further encourage development, the Village, pursuant to Resolution<br />

No. 13-052 adopted by this Council on June 17, 2013, expanded the<br />

area specified in the CRA Resolution (the “Original Area”) and, pursuant to Resolution<br />

No. 15-045 adopted by this Council on August 3, 2015, the Village further<br />

expanded the Original Area (with the Original Area, as so expanded, being<br />

referred to as the “Second Amended Area”); and<br />

WHEREAS, to further encourage development, the Village, pursuant to<br />

Resolution No. 18-081 adopted by this Council on November 5, 2018,<br />

expanded the Second Amended Area (with the Second Amended Area, as so<br />

expanded, being referred to as the “Third Amended Area”); and<br />

WHEREAS, to further encourage development, the Village, pursuant to<br />

Resolution No. 19-046 adopted by this Council on May 6, 2019, expanded the<br />

Third Amended Area (with the Third Amended Area, as so expanded, being referred<br />

to as the “Fourth Amended Area”); and<br />

WHEREAS, the Village will act such that within sixty (60) days of adoption of<br />

this instant Resolution, the Village will petition the Director of Development of<br />

the State of Ohio to confirm that the Fourth Amended Area, as expanded<br />

herein, contains the characteristics set forth in R.C. Section 3735.66 and therefore<br />

said Fourth Amended Area, as expanded, constitutes a “Community Reinvestment<br />

Area”; and<br />

WHEREAS, the Village desires to promote commercial development in approximately<br />

2.453 +/- acres of real property identified in the records of the <strong>Madison</strong><br />

County Auditor as of the date of this Resolution as permanent parcel number<br />

16-00021.001 and described more completely on Exhibit A attached to this<br />

Resolution (the “Additional Property”), which is contiguous to the Fourth<br />

Amended Area; and<br />

WHEREAS, the Village believes that the development of the Additional<br />

Property would encourage economic stability and maintain real property values<br />

and desires to expand the Fourth Amended Area to include the Additional<br />

Property (the Fourth Amended Area, as expanded by the Additional Property,<br />

is referred to in this Resolution as the “Expanded Area”); and<br />

WHEREAS, as required by R.C. Section 3735.66, a survey of housing was<br />

prepared for the original designation of the Original Area and has been updated<br />

by the Village to include additional property in the Expanded Area (the<br />

“Survey”); and<br />

WHEREAS, the Survey, as updated, shows the facts and conditions relating<br />

to existing housing and commercial facilities and undeveloped land in the Expanded<br />

Area, including, among other things, evidence of deterioration and lack<br />

of new construction or repair or rehabilitation of substantial portions of the Expanded<br />

Area; and<br />

WHEREAS, the maintenance of existing structures and construction of new<br />

structures in the Expanded Area would serve to encourage economic stability,<br />

maintain real property values, and generate new employment opportunities;<br />

and<br />

WHEREAS, the remodeling of existing structures or the construction of new<br />

structures in the Expanded Area constitutes a public purpose for which real<br />

property tax exemptions may be granted;<br />

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE VILLAGE OF WEST<br />

JEFFERSON COUNCIL, COUNTY OF MADISON, STATE OF OHIO:<br />

exemption, during the period of the exemption, the applicable percentage of<br />

the assessed value of the structure shall be exempted from real property taxation.<br />

The Mayor is hereby authorized to give any and all notices on behalf of this<br />

Council that may be required by R.C. Sections 3735.671, 3735.673 and<br />
