CW Labor Day
By Linda Dillman
The roots of Canal Winchester’s Labor Day Festival run deep,
beginning before the turn of the 20th century with a Grangesponsored
Winchester Fair to the event it has become, which
draws thousands of people.
This year the streets will not be filled with high-speed attractions,
music, contests and smoky aromas filtering through the
crowds. On May 21, the non-profit, volunteer-run Labor Day
Festival Committee decided to cancel the September show until
In the May public statement, organizers shared their difficult
decision, noting concern for public safety amidst the backdrop of
the COVID-19 pandemic.
Festival Vice President Mike Coolman spoke on behalf of the
festival’s board of directors, saying, “This was not an easy decision,
but was a responsible and necessary decision. Early last
week, the Canal Winchester Labor Day Festival Board of
Directors met and made the decision based on the likely strict
and difficult guidelines we would have to follow if we were to
attempt to host this year's festival. The health and safety of our
community is paramount.”
The committee began working on plans for the 2020 100th
Labor Day Festival last fall, so much of the work was already
completed in anticipation of the centennial anniversary.
“We want our 100th Labor Day Festival celebration to be
huge,” said Coolman. “We were going to pull out all stops on this
one this year for our 100th and we still will next year when are
able to celebrate.”
According to Coolman, tents, tables, chairs, golf carts, etc.

Extra safety and health precautions during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic have changed the way the
Madison Township Fire Department responds to emergency runs, such as thoroughly disinfecting and
sanitizing medics and firehouses everyday and after each patient contact. “On every transport, each
patient is given a mask to wear and on every run, we, as paramedics, have to wear gloves, eye protection
and a P100 respirator mask,” said Firefighter Ed Dildine, Jr. On May 14, members of Dry Patrol provided
free sanitizing and disinfecting services to fire department vehicles and buildings. Pictured is company
employee Caleb Stone sanitizing one of the Madison Township medics at station 183 on Noe-Bixby Road.
“In this time of unprecedented circumstances, it is great that we can all work together to keep everyone
safe,” said Dildine.
Swimming pool to remain closed
By Linda Dillman
After deciding to not open the city’s swimming pool
earlier this month, Canal Winchester officials took a
second look after Governor Mike DeWine announced
that municipal pools are permitted to open, albeit
under strict pandemic restrictions.
“We always knew pools would be able to open at
some point, but our decision to not open was based on
the expected gathering and distancing restrictions that
would have to be implemented,” said Canal
Winchester Public Service Director Matt Peoples in a
May 18 report to council.
Starting May 26, public pools regulated by local
health departments in Ohio are permitted to open if
they can meet mandated safety protocols.

Continued from page 1
However, when asked if the pool will
open, Canal Winchester Mayor Mike Ebert
said the short answer is, “No.”
“Even though the governor says, ‘yes you
can open,’ the public health directors are
both in agreement and are not recommending
opening of pools” said Ebert on May 20.
“Even though that is not a direct order, we
feel the requirements for us to open the
pool will be more than our lifeguards will
be able to handle as they have had no training
of the new requirements and whoever is
going to train them has no training either.
If we were to open, it would not be the experience
our attendees have had in the past.
All social distancing policies will need to be
followed, chairs will be a minimum of six
feet apart, everyone in the pool will remain
six feet apart. The daily admission at any
given time would be about one third or less
of our normal attendance.”
Ebert said there would be no gatherings
allowed and attendees would be required
to walk in specific directions to enter or
exit the pool, go to the concession stand or
use the restroom. Breaks would likely be
more frequent and last for 30 minutes to
allow for sanitizing of nearly every surface
“If someone who visits the pool does
come down with the virus at some point,
everyone who was at the pool on the same
day likely will be contacted by Franklin
County Public Health and will need to go
into quarantine,” said Ebert. “This and
many more details are why we have not
changed our position on keeping the pool
closed. Canal Winchester residents have
been doing a fantastic job of following the
social distancing orders and not every community
can say that. Even though this was
a very tough decision to make, my biggest
concern is the safety of our residents.”
According to the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention, there is no evidence
that the virus that causes COVID-19 can be
spread through the water in pools, hot tubs,
spas, or water play areas. Proper operation
and maintenance of facilities, including disinfection
with chlorine and bromine, should
inactivate the virus in the water.

Day festival is a far cry from the first fairs
once held in an opera house, skating rink,
and buildings along the railroad. According
to the book, “Canal Winchester Ohio: The
Second Ninety Years,” by Frances Steube
and Lillian Carroll, beginning in 1906, the
fair moved to a six-acre tract on Columbus
and Winchester Pike and later to a ballpark.
No fair was held in 1914 and Carroll
and Steube could not locate records of
another until 1925 when a Canal
Winchester Festival and Community Fair
was held in October of that year. Names
and locations changed through the years
until 1960 when three local men organized
the first Labor Day celebration with a
chicken barbecue dinner and parade.
“Many people believe the city of Canal
Messenger photo by Rick Palsgrove
The Canal Winchester Municipal Pool will
be closed for the 2020 season.
DeWine’s Outdoor Recreation Advisory
Group created a detailed list of guidelines
and best practices for pool facilities to follow.
They included the installation of physical
barriers–lane lines in the pool or chairs
and tables on the deck–and visual cues,
such as tape on pool decks to ensure everyone
not related stays at least six feet apart.
In addition, pools are mandated to discourage
or prohibit shared objects, including
goggles, nose clips, and snorkels, and
close any non-essential areas where people
could potentially congregate.
They are also required to develop and
implement a reduced maximum capacity to
allow six feet of distance between users
and develop revised deck layouts in standing
and seating areas, so individuals
remain at least six feet apart.
Two letters supporting the continued
closure of the pool were included in written
comments shared on the May 18 Canal
Winchester City Council agenda.
“I personally do not believe the pool
should be opened for the 2020 season,”
wrote resident Rachel Radford. “This is
due to several factors, but mainly people
cannot, and will not, socially distance. The
virus has not had a chance to fully spread
in the public and thus I do not feel there is
enough scientific data or evidence to support
a reopening. We can’t control people,
but we can control if there are places to
congregate in large numbers.”
Madeleine Dickerson shared similar
comments, stating, “Why open up a very
small pool packed with kids and adults
who won’t be distancing? This could be a
disaster and not worth the risk.”
Winchester organizes this event each year
and that is not accurate,” said Coolman.
“The Canal Winchester Labor Day Festival
Committee is an independent, non-profit
organization run entirely by volunteers
who work hard each year to bring this wonderful
event to Canal Winchester. The city
is one of our biggest sponsors in that they
grant us the ability to use their streets,
sidewalk and many city workers help with
the festival each year. Our committee had
been working hard to make this another
fantastic event. So much of the work had
already been done and a lot of the pieces
were already in place. It saddened us to
have to make this decision and it was not
made lightly, but it was made with the
well-being of our community in mind.”
Council wants town hall meeting
May 31, 2020 - EASTSIDE MESSENGER - PAGE 3
By Linda Dillman
Canal Winchester City Council is moving ahead
with plans for a June 23 town hall meeting, but it will
be a far cry from the previous one held before the ongoing
coronavirus pandemic took hold.
Ironing out the logistics of not only socially distancing
the council, administration and directors, there is
also the process by which the public offers its comments,
concerns and interactions.
Currently, council meetings are conducted in a
hybrid fashion with some individuals in the municipal
building and others participating remotely.
“I think you all know since this whole thing started
we have explored a lot of technological solutions and
this one is by far the best one we have come up with,”
said Finance Director Amanda Jackson. “I don’t think
we have anything else to offer so if you have suggestions,
we would love to hear them.”
Councilman Mike Coolman felt Town Hall meetings
have been effective and the public is appreciative of
the one attended by department directors.
When there were questions asked of council with
which they did not feel competent enough to respond,
did not recall the information or were not up to date
with the latest information, Coolman said directors
stepped up and filled in the information gap.
“Personally speaking, I would want them there,”
said Coolman. “Going back, the reason we are doing
this is because of the letters that were sent in and the
questions that were sent in. (There) were questions…
about the financial stability and they want a breakdown
of the expense report. They want to know what
the budgets are. They want to know how we are affected
by tax collections, so they want to know the process
or progress of businesses closing in Canal. Are projects
Councilwoman Jill Amos said they would need to
establish a procedure for signing in and speaking
according to the sign-up list and a way to effectively
mute and unmute city and public speakers.
“We would go down the list and say, Mr. Coolman
you are up, unmute Mr. Coolman and ask your question
and we can have that conversation and then we
can mute afterwards to start the next person,” said
Amos. “That way, we can effectively control that chaos
and volume control. I think there is a way and we’ll figure

•Councilman Bob Clark reported on a preliminary
kick-off meeting on May 11 for the McDorman
Municipal Complex. He said the community center
would be a high priority within the building.
“I heard the possibility of adding a new reading
room to that and the possibility of moving the conference
room that is connected to the community center
and maybe making that more towards the middle and
freeing up additional space from that point, but nothing
is set in stone,” said Clark.
Councilman Chuck Milliken assumed the council
will have a much larger room where they hold executive
sessions and added he would like to see the potential
for the room to be rented out at some point.
“I don’t know where that room will be set in the
building, but I think it is a good idea for it to not be
wasted space when it is not being used,” said Milliken.
Public Service Director Matt Peoples said the council
chamber will be flexible shared space without fixed
chairs, but the council desk will be fixed. Peoples also
talked about the size of the council chamber and being
able to divide it that so there would be a large room
that could be divided into two smaller rooms as well.
Another consideration pointed out by Councilman
Pat Lynch was keeping up with the technology of web
cams and filming/broadcasting the meetings.
“Then you will have a lot more people watching
from home,” said Lynch. “There are some hot topics
coming up where people want to attend. I think we are
getting to the point where we won’t have as many people
at the meetings like we may have before because
you can watch from home, so that might be something
that comes out as far as size of those facilities.”

For the most part, these films can be forgiven for its missing,

Just a few years prior to the film’s release, Kumail Nanjiani

CW Schools’ financial destiny still under control
By Linda Dillman
Conservative planning is paying off for
Canal Winchester Schools in weathering
the financial impacts of the coronavirus
According to Treasurer Nick Roberts’
April summary of the district’s five year
forecast, although revenue was under
expenditures by $273,000 due to timing in
receiving significant revenue sources, he is
forecasting an ending positive cash balance
$627,000 higher than a previous October
“Cash-wise, through the five-year forecast,
we’re still sitting pretty nice,” said
Roberts, who said the only impact so far on
district finances is in state revenue.
While he expects a cut between five and
20 percent of nearly $1 million dollars, he
said the district is “probably in the top five
percent of school districts in Ohio” that can
weather the financial storm because of
“We are in control of our destiny, not
COVID-19,” said Roberts, who admitted it
will be a financial juggling act in the
upcoming months. “We’ll continue to be
Health insurance premium costs
increased by $576,878 and dental premiums
went up $8,751 as Roberts expected in
his year-over-year analysis. While dental
claims were down nearly nine percent,
health insurance claims increased by 19.5
“This is cause for concern considering
the prior year had higher claims,” said
Roberts’ “The district experienced drastic
reductions the last two months due to the
COVID-19 restrictions. We anticipate
claims increasing again once the restrictions
are removed. We will need to elevate
plan design if this trend continues.”
During the same meeting,
Superintendent James Sotlar said the high
school construction is ahead of schedule.
The former high school office was dismantled,
including removal of walls, and
will become a student commons area and
the old media center now serves as the
“Hopefully, they’ll have the project done
sooner than later,” said Sotlar.
Veterans Hall of Fame seeking applications
The Ohio Veterans Hall of Fame is
accepting nominations to recognize those
who served in the U.S. Armed Forces and
continue to contribute to our communities,
state, and nation through exceptional acts
of volunteerism, advocacy, professional distinction,
public service, or philanthropy.
Each year, the hall of fame inducts up to
20 former service members based on recommendations
from an executive committee
of veterans from throughout the state
and approval from the governor of Ohio.
To be considered, the veteran must
meet the following criteria:
• Be a past or current Ohio resident
• Have received an honorable discharge
“We are in control of our destiny, not
Nick Roberts, CW Schools treasurer
• Be of good moral character
Sam Felton Jr., honored at the Ohio
Veterans Hall of Fame Class of 2019
Induction Ceremony said, “This Hall of
Fame sets the standard for recognizing
Ohio’s veterans for accomplishments
beyond their military service. In addition,
it is a fitting way to say thank you for your
service to our nation and thank you for
your continued service to our communities.”
The nomination deadline is June 1.
