Normally, the annual Farm Science Review takes place at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center in London.<br />

That will not be the case this year as the show is going virtual.<br />

Farm Science going virtual<br />

For the first time in its nearly 60-year history, The<br />

Ohio State University’s Farm Science Review, scheduled<br />

for Sept. 22-24, will not be held in-person. Instead,<br />

a virtual show will be implemented for <strong>2020</strong>.<br />

The farm show, sponsored by Ohio State’s College<br />

of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences<br />

(CFAES), annually attracts more than 100,000 visitors<br />

from all over the United States and Canada to the<br />

show site in London.<br />

“We are committed to delivering a robust and innovative<br />

virtual show in support of agriculture during<br />

this pandemic,” said Cathann A. Kress, vice president<br />

and dean of CFAES.<br />

“Throughout its history, the Farm Science Review<br />

has been at the forefront of showcasing the future of<br />

agriculture,” she said. “While it may look different in<br />

<strong>2020</strong>, we will continue to meet the needs of our growers<br />

and partners through access to exhibitors, virtual<br />

demonstrations, and education about the most recent<br />

advancements in agricultural production.”<br />

The three-day event normally allows agricultural<br />

producers to peruse 4,000 product lines from 600 commercial<br />

exhibitors, view field demonstrations, and<br />

learn the latest in agricultural production. Popular educational<br />

programs feature specialists from The Ohio<br />

State University, Central State University, and other<br />

land-grant institutions.<br />

“Due to the rapidly changing conditions in the<br />

spread of COVID-19 across the U.S., the decision was<br />

made to hold a virtual show,” said Nick Zachrich,<br />

Farm Science Review manager. “We have worked diligently<br />

to plan for another incredible show demonstrating<br />

the newest developments in equipment, research,<br />

and application to support agricultural production.”<br />

Current conditions are not conducive to hosting an<br />

in-person event.<br />

“With our multigenerational audience, we determined<br />

a need to prioritize everyone’s health and ensure<br />

that we are doing our part to contain the spread<br />

of the virus during this global pandemic,” he said.<br />

While extremely disappointing for everyone involved,<br />

Zachrich said that Farm Science Review management<br />

and its executive committee believe this is<br />

the right decision to keep visitors, exhibitors, partners,<br />

and staff safe.<br />

In addition, the State of Ohio Responsible Restart<br />

guidelines currently limit mass gatherings. There is<br />

little reason to anticipate changes in the next two<br />

months that would provide for the ability to meet<br />

Farm Science Review’s daily in-person attendance of<br />

between 35,000 to 50,000 visitors, organizers said.<br />

“We understood early on that regardless of the<br />

number of cases, the show would have to take a drastically<br />

different approach in order to meet the health<br />

and safety requirements for COVID-19, such as physical<br />

distancing and sanitization,” Zachrich said. “While<br />

we would have liked to wait until closer to the event<br />

to make a decision, we felt compelled to let suppliers,<br />

exhibitors, and partners know so they can begin to<br />

plan for a virtual show.”<br />

More information will be shared in the forthcoming<br />

weeks about the <strong>2020</strong> virtual Farm Science Review<br />

program and how to engage. Visit fsr.osu.edu for ongoing<br />

Jonathan Alder Local Schools has a new start date for the <strong>2020</strong>-<br />

21 school year and a plan for reopening amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.<br />

At a special meeting on Aug. 4, the school board unanimously<br />

approved a plan that changes the first day of school for students<br />

from Aug. 19 to Aug. 24. District staffers are using the extra time<br />

to prepare for a new look to school operations.<br />

Superintendent Gary Chapman said the district anticipates<br />

opening at 50 percent capacity, meaning that half of the student<br />

population will attend school in-person on Mondays and Tuesdays;<br />

the other half will attend school in-person on Thursdays and Fridays.<br />

All students will learn online from home on Wednesdays.<br />

“We’re breaking it up by alphabet,” Chapman said about the 50<br />

percent setup.<br />

Students with last names beginning<br />

with A through K will attend school at<br />

the start of the week. The others will attend<br />

school at the end of the week. Families<br />

will have the option to appeal their<br />

child’s assigned days. For instance,<br />

some families have children with<br />

different last names living in the<br />

same household. It is recommended<br />

that students from the same household<br />

to go to school on the same<br />

days, Chapman said.<br />

Building principals were to release their specific building plans,<br />

including logistics, protocols and safety measures, to parents by<br />

Aug. 7.<br />

As an alternative to having their children attend school in-person,<br />

families can choose to have their children learn completely online<br />

through the Jonathan Alder Digital Academy (JADA). Those<br />

who wanted to do so had to make their choice known by Aug. 7. As<br />

of the Aug. 4 school board meeting, 90 students had signed up for<br />

JADA, representing 4.6 percent of the school district’s student population.<br />

Chapman emphasized that the reopening plan is subject to<br />

change. District leaders will consider the following factors when<br />

making decisions: state alert levels regarding COVID-19, <strong>Madison</strong><br />

County Public Health guidelines, student and teacher absentee<br />

rates, and local community spread of the virus. He noted that the<br />

district is not tying its backup plans to certain state alert levels, in<br />

part because the district serves students in three different counties—<strong>Madison</strong>,<br />

Union and Franklin—each of which could have a different<br />

alert status in any given week.<br />

As for other logistics, all student meals will be prepackaged, students<br />

will have assigned seats on buses, buses will be sanitized<br />

twice a day, and all rooms in all buildings will be cleaned multiple<br />

times a day and sanitized nightly.<br />

The school board approved a new job description for school<br />

health aides and a plan that will put two such aides at each school<br />

building—one to man the building’s COVID-19 clinic and one to man<br />

a separate clinic for students with other health issues.<br />

Medline, a medical products manufacturer and distributor, opened its new West Jefferson distribution facility.<br />

Medline opens West Jeff facility<br />

Company adding 100 jobs<br />

Medline, the largest privately-owned medical products<br />

manufacturer and distributor in North America,<br />

announced on July 31 that its new West Jefferson distribution<br />

facility is open for business and fully operational.<br />

The facility will add another 100 new jobs to its<br />

existing 75-member team to support Medline’s growing<br />

customer base in Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.<br />

“We are excited to call West Jefferson our new<br />

home,” said Bill Abington, Medline executive vice president<br />

for global operations. “Access to local talent and<br />

state-of-the-art technology will help us deliver vital<br />

medical supplies to Ohio and Appalachian Region<br />

health care providers where they need them, when they<br />

need them.”<br />

The $75 million medical-grade distribution center is<br />

a 1.2 million square-foot facility from which approximately<br />

20,000 individual products and devices will be<br />

shipped to healthcare providers such as hospitals, nursing<br />

homes, ambulatory surgery centers, hospices and<br />

physician offices. More than $300 million in annual orders<br />

will ship from the West Jefferson facility.<br />

District leaders also are working on a plan to recruit<br />

more substitute teachers. Dr. Misty Swanger, assistant<br />

superintendent, said that Jonathan Alder has suffered<br />

a shortage of substitute teachers over the last couple of<br />

years, as have other districts. She said the problem<br />

could worsen if anyone in the sub pool contracts the<br />

virus or has contact with someone who has and has to<br />

quarantine.<br />

To build up the sub pool, the district is working on<br />

an aggressive and creative recruitment plan, Swanger<br />

said. They plan to advertise the need far and wide and<br />

reach out to retired teachers and parents with degrees.<br />

Swanger noted that substitute teachers do not need a<br />

teaching license; they only need a bachelor’s degree.<br />

“I think you will be surprised by how many people in<br />

the community—who aren’t doing anything else—will<br />

“Medline’s decision to choose the Columbus region<br />

for this new facility demonstrates how Ohio is an ideal<br />

destination to build out the nation’s medical supply<br />

chain,” said J.P. Nauseef, JobsOhio president and CEO.<br />

“This state-of-the-art facility will create 175 new jobs<br />

and operate with talent that will play an essential role<br />

in getting critical medical supplies to Medline’s growing<br />

customer base.”<br />

The new facility utilizes the latest technology, including<br />

an advanced robotic picking system, hands-free<br />

voice picking systems and a wireless communications<br />

system. The energy efficient design and LEED-certified<br />

building minimizes environmental impacts.<br />

“We are excited to see Medline open their state-ofthe-art<br />

distribution facility in West Jefferson. We look<br />

forward to supporting their facility as they operate and<br />

thrive in our community," said Ray Martin, West Jefferson<br />

mayor.<br />

The West Jefferson site was selected because of its<br />

access to transportation infrastructure and commitment<br />

to its current local workforce. All 75 current Medline<br />

team members in Groveport will transfer to the<br />

new distribution center and retain their current jobs.<br />

Medline has been operating in Ohio for two decades.<br />

It has a second Ohio distribution center in Canton.<br />

say, ‘If you need me,’” said Shannon Foust board member.<br />

The district also is implementing a new position of<br />

full-time substitute, with one slot available per building.<br />

Because classroom sizes will be smaller this year,<br />

the district is eliminating some classroom aide positions<br />

and repurposing them into full-time substitute positions.<br />

The daily pay rate for substitutes is $105 for the first<br />

15 days, $125 after 15 days, and $219 starting at day<br />

60. A substitute who works a full semester will earn<br />

$13,000. Swanger compared that to the $11,000 a classroom<br />

aide would earn. While the full-time sub plan will<br />

cost the district more money, Swanger said it should<br />

help with the substitute shortage.<br />

The school board’s regular monthly meeting, set for<br />

5:30 p.m. Aug. 10, will be livestreamed on the district’s<br />

Facebook page.

London takes youth volleyball league outside<br />

Kristy Zurbrick<br />

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

London’s Parks and Recreation Department<br />

is thinking outside the box when it<br />

comes to its fall youth volleyball league. To<br />

be specific, they’re thinking outside.<br />

Practices and games will take place on<br />

grass courts outside the Community Center,<br />

instead of in the center’s gymnasium. The<br />

switch is being made with COVID-19 safety<br />

in mind.<br />

“I knew our gym wasn’t going to work. It<br />

doesn’t have air conditioning and it has poor<br />

air circulation,” said Tammy Braskett,<br />

parks and recreation director. “I thought<br />

about cancelling the program, but then I<br />

thought about how I first started playing<br />

volleyball—it was outside, in the backyard,<br />

on grass.”<br />

Braskett came up with the idea of using<br />

the flat green space at the corner of First<br />

and Walnut streets, near the Community<br />

Center. The area has room for five courts.<br />

“I don’t know of anybody else that’s done<br />

this,” she said. “We’re just trying to do something<br />

to give kids something to do and not<br />

lose our program.”<br />

Braskett had to halt the spring volleyball<br />

league due to COVID-19 shutdowns.<br />

In addition to the change to outside<br />

courts, practice and game schedules for the<br />

fall volleyball league will be different than<br />

in the past. For starters, all divisions will<br />

practice at the same time.<br />

“We’re going to be fighting darkness.<br />

That’s why we’ll have everybody out there<br />

at the same time,” Braskett said.<br />

She also is going with a shorter season.<br />

Tryouts are slated for Sept. 1, practices<br />

start Sept. 2, and games start Sept. 20. Instead<br />

of going through the end of October,<br />

games will finish up on Oct. 17. The middle<br />

and upper divisions will play double-headers<br />

on Sundays. The lower division will play<br />

single games on Sundays and Wednesdays.<br />

“Everything will be smooth and professional<br />

and organized,” Braskett said.<br />

For spectators, Braskett plans to paint<br />

boxes for seating that promotes social dis-<br />

tancing. Spectators will need to bring their<br />

own chairs. Umbrellas are recommended<br />

because shade likely will be hard to come<br />

by.<br />

London’s fall youth volleyball league is<br />

open to children in grades kindergarten<br />

through eighth grade. Last year, 100 kids<br />

participated. The registration deadline is<br />

Aug. 16. The cost is $60 per child with discounts<br />

for siblings.<br />

Registration forms are available at:<br />

• City Hall, 20 S. Walnut St., at the<br />

lobby desk, 8 a.m.-4 p.m. weekdays;<br />

• London City Pool, 203 Park Ave., until<br />

Aug. 16, noon-7 p.m. Wednesday-Sunday;<br />

• www.londonohio.gov/parks-recreationdepartment.<br />

New this year, participants can pay online.<br />

Or they can download the form, pay<br />

with cash or check, and drop off or mail the<br />

completed form and payment to: City of<br />

London, Attn: Youth Volleyball, 20 S. Walnut<br />

St., Suite 100, London OH 43140.<br />

Combs gets nomination<br />

Kristy Zurbrick<br />

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

On Aug. 4, the <strong>Madison</strong> County Republican<br />

Central Committee nominated Kenna<br />

Combs to appear on the Nov. 3 general election<br />

ballot as the Republican candidate for<br />

the unexpired London city auditor seat.<br />

The committee originally appointed<br />

Combs to the position in March <strong>2020</strong> after<br />

Lora Long resigned from the post. Long had<br />

won election to a four-year term in the November<br />

2019 election. Combs was appointed<br />

to fill the seat through the end of this year.<br />

The remaining three years of the term are<br />

up for election.<br />

Long’s resignation and Combs’s appointment<br />

occurred after the deadline for candidates<br />

to submit petitions for candidacy in<br />

the <strong>2020</strong> primary election. That deadline<br />

was Dec. 18, 2019. In such cases, it is up to<br />

the Republican Central Committee to select<br />

a candidate to appear on the ballot for the<br />

general election.

Movie will make you rethink vacation rentals<br />

If a remote house on the oceanfront is the main setting in a<br />

movie, you know the plot can take only so many directions.<br />

It can go the independent route and focus on a couple, or possibly<br />

an entire family, who has spent years holding in their ill-will toward<br />

each other only to have those hidden threads unspool. When such a<br />

film hits theaters, it garners critical praise, head-scratching from<br />

the general audience, and an Academy Award nomination for its<br />

endless scenes of waves crashing onto the shore.<br />

Or it can go the supernatural feature route. Typically, films in<br />

this genre are more apt to be located in Victorian homes than modern<br />

structures, but they receive points for a willingness to take a<br />

risk in a new setting.<br />

The third route is the horror realm. In this scenario, a group of<br />

friends sets out for a night of debauchery only for something to go<br />

terribly wrong. They could be put at risk for their own stupidity,<br />

but it’s more likely the danger comes from outside forces, such as a<br />

crazed killer who wants the property for himself or herself.<br />

The latest film to feature the remote house on the oceanfront is<br />

“The Rental” which borrows elements from the independent and<br />

horror genres. Taken at face value, it doesn’t seem like the two ideas<br />

would mesh well, but the film works as a quiet and introspective<br />

drama that later becomes spattered with, well, blood.<br />

“The Rental” begins with a proposal. After securing a project that<br />

could set their budding tech company up for life, close business partners<br />

Charlie (Dan Stevens) and Mina (Sheila Vand) decide to rent<br />

an isolated property on the Pacific Coast as a way to celebrate their<br />

achievement. Soon, they will be looking at a full schedule of hard<br />

work and believe this is their last chance to unwind.<br />

As they contemplate booking the lavish home for the weekend,<br />

they remember they have significant others who wouldn’t be too<br />

jazzed if they went without them. When invited to come along,<br />

Charlie’s wife, Michelle (Alison Brie), starts making plans for day<br />

hikes in the surrounding woods and nights on ecstasy, while Mina’s<br />

boyfriend, Josh (Jeremy Allen White), is torn between valued time<br />

with his lady and the potential of strife with Charlie, his older<br />

brother.<br />

With the potentially sordid weekend set, the quartet drives off<br />

into the rugged terrain with the intention of a good time. Naturally,<br />

things do not go as planned.<br />

madison<br />

<strong>Messenger</strong><br />

When they arrive at the remote<br />

house on the oceanfront,<br />

ent genre might find it to be a<br />

bit on the gory side, I enjoyed<br />

they meet the property’s shady<br />

the blend. I have to admit,<br />

manager, Taylor (Toby Huss), by Dedra Cordle though, that I preferred it when<br />

who makes some thinly veiled<br />

comments about Mina’s ethnicity. Later, when coming<br />

it was on the path toward a quietly<br />

explosive character drama.<br />

back from a walk on the beach, they realize Taylor has<br />

Writer and director Dave<br />

been in the house when he promised to leave them be<br />

for the weekend. Though unnerved, they push aside<br />

their base instincts to get out as the lure of drugs and<br />

day hikes are too good to pass up. (OK, maybe they’re<br />

more excited about the former rather than the latter,<br />

but day hikes are great when in the right environment.)<br />

After their significant others crash for the night,<br />

Charlie and Mina bond in the hot tub and then consummate<br />

their relationship in the shower. In the morning,<br />

suffering from bouts of guilt, Charlie and Mina realize<br />

their escapades were taped via hidden camera. They immediately<br />

suspect Taylor and set out to keep him from<br />

spilling their secret. But when all of those hidden<br />

Franco did a great job of crafting<br />

tension between the two couples<br />

and creating a sense of unease<br />

as the non-couple moved closer<br />

together. You wanted to see how<br />

it would explode in everyone’s<br />

face without the twist of physical horror.<br />

Wrong turn near the backend aside, “The Rental” is<br />

an interesting film that is both a quiet character study<br />

and a study in rental home paranoia. It is sure to draw<br />

a mixed reaction from the audience, but it will probably<br />

make a large swath of people second guess a future<br />

booking of a vacation rental.<br />

threads begin to unspool, they realize that a Peeping<br />

Tom, or Taylor in this case, is the last of their worries. Grade: B-<br />

While fans of the horror genre might find “The<br />

Rental” to be on the tame side, and fans of the independ-<br />

Dedra Cordle is a <strong>Messenger</strong> staff writer and columnist.<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> County EMA offers free facial coverings<br />

On July 23, the Ohio Department of Health issued a statewide<br />

mandate for facial coverings. Research shows that people can spread<br />

COVID-19 two days before their first symptom appears. Asymptomatic<br />

carriers (people<br />

who have health<br />

COVID-19 but<br />

never have symptoms)<br />

can spread<br />

by Chris Cook<br />

the virus to other people for days or weeks. Cloth facial coverings<br />

capture and reduce the number of infectious droplets in the air and<br />

are effective at slowing the spread of COVID-19.<br />

The World Health Organization supports governments encouraging<br />

the general public to wear cloth masks—especially when indoors—in<br />

areas of community transmission. An article published in<br />

Infectious Disease Modelling found that population-level benefit is<br />

greater the earlier masks are adopted; this means widespread use<br />

of masks will lower the number of cases, hospitalizations and<br />

deaths. While masks alone are not enough, they have far more significant<br />

impact when paired with other public health measures such<br />

as social distancing and hand washing.<br />

Until we have a vaccine to help protect us from COVID-19, wearing<br />

a mask is the most selfless act we can take during this pandemic.<br />

We don’t think twice about protecting ourselves by wearing<br />

a seat belt. Wearing a mask protects everyone around you. Simply<br />

put, wearing a mask is a sign of respect for other human beings.<br />

The state order made facial coverings required for everyone age<br />

10 and older in all indoor public spaces, outside when six feet of social<br />

distance is not consistently maintained, and while waiting for,<br />

riding or driving public transportation, taxis and ride-sharing services.<br />

At minimum, facial coverings (masks) should be cloth or fabric<br />

and cover your nose, mouth and chin. Masks should not be shared,<br />

should fit snuggly, and should not have any visible holes or tears.<br />

It is important to avoid touching your mask while wearing it and<br />

remove masks by the ear loops or ties. After removing your mask,<br />

wash your hands immediately. Cloth masks should be washed with<br />

soap or detergent in warm water after every use.<br />

MCPH is working with our partners at the <strong>Madison</strong><br />

County Emergency Management Agency to help residents<br />

get free masks, especially individuals in our community<br />

that may be in need. To get a free facial<br />

covering, call <strong>Madison</strong> County EMA at (740) 852-4200,<br />

Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.<br />

Video games and thrifting in downtown London<br />

Theresa Hennis<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Downtown London is home to two new<br />

shops. Sit N’ Play, a video game store at 5<br />

E. High St., and Kathy’s Community Corner,<br />

a thrift store at 9 E. High St., celebrated<br />

their openings with ribbon cutting<br />

ceremonies on Aug. 1.<br />

Sit N’ Play owners Brad and Charissa<br />

Thomas said they felt that London needed a<br />

new video game store after losing two such<br />

stores in the past.<br />

Brad Thomas buys, sells and trades video<br />

games and repairs video game systems.<br />

“I have a network all over the country,”<br />

he said. “If I don’t have what you’re looking<br />

for, I can get it for you.”<br />

His wife, Charissa, looks forward to expanding<br />

the store.<br />

“For right now, people can buy our games<br />

and take them home to sit and play, but we<br />

want to make a playing area available<br />

here,” she said.<br />

Kathy Lyon, owner of Kathy’s Community<br />

Corner, sees her store as a business and<br />

an outreach center. She has helped families<br />

who have lost everything to fires. Her vision<br />

for the new location is to help more families<br />

in need. She also accepts volunteer work<br />

from those who are obligated to perform<br />

community service.<br />

Lyon has an open-door policy, reminiscent<br />

of the community feel of an old general store.<br />

“If anyone wants to pull up a chair and talk<br />

or has a problem and needs someone to listen,<br />

I’m here. I have a love for people,” she said.<br />

The store has a wide inventory, but if<br />

customers can’t find what they want or<br />

need, Lyon, who frequents auctions, can<br />

find it for them.<br />

For more about Sit N’ Play, visit sitnplayvideogames.com<br />

and “Sit N Play” on<br />

Facebook, or call (740) 490-7016. Store<br />

hours are noon-8 p.m. Tuesday-Friday and<br />

noon-5 p.m. Saturday.<br />

To contact Kathy’s Community Corner,<br />

call (740) 771-6536. Store hours are 10 a.m.-<br />

5 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday.<br />

Cahill tapped to fill West Jefferson council seat<br />

Josephine Birdsell<br />

Staff Writer<br />

West Jefferson village council has a new<br />

member.<br />

Steve Johnston stepped down last month<br />

for health reasons. On Aug. 3, the remaining<br />

council members appointed Samantha<br />

Cahill to fill Johnston’s seat.<br />

For the last five years, Cahill has chaired<br />

an advocacy group for area residents and<br />

their families who are dealing with alcoholism<br />

and addiction. She also served on the<br />

village’s charter review commission, which<br />

reviews the laws that regulate the functions<br />

and operation of the village.<br />

“I think right now, the council is moving<br />

and making great strides,” Cahill said. “I<br />

see a lot more involvement right now than I<br />

have in the past, and I’m very proud to be a<br />

part of that.”<br />

Cahill has lived in West Jefferson since<br />

1988. She raised all six of her children<br />

through West Jefferson public schools. All<br />

of her children are now adults; three of them<br />

still live in the village.<br />

Cahill has worked in communications<br />

and sales at Matheson, a welding supply<br />

and medical gas company in Hilliard, for the<br />

past five years.<br />

2 million face masks on their way to Ohio schools<br />

“I just want to be positive<br />

and listen to my fellow (council<br />

members) and help accomplish<br />

things that the<br />

village needs,” she said.<br />

Cahill was one of three<br />

people who applied to fill the<br />

vacated council seat. The<br />

other applicants were Jim<br />

King and Sharon McCord.<br />

Council members interviewed<br />

all of the candidates<br />

and recommended Cahill for<br />

appointment.<br />

Cahill will serve on council<br />

Samantha Cahill<br />

through 2021.<br />

Also at the Aug. 3 meeting,<br />

council members elected a<br />

new council president and vice<br />

president. Jen Warner is taking<br />

Johnston’s place as president.<br />

Warner, who has been<br />

on council for three years,<br />

served as vice president the<br />

past two years. She will serve<br />

as council president through<br />

Jan. 3, 2021. Council unanimously<br />

voted to elect Mike<br />

Conway to fill Warner’s position<br />

as vice president.<br />

The Ohio Emergency Management<br />

Agency (EMA), in cooperation with the Ohio<br />

Department of Education, received 2 million<br />

face masks this week for Ohio school children,<br />

teachers and administrators.<br />

These donated masks were made available<br />

to the State of Ohio from the Federal<br />

Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)<br />

and will be available to Ohio school districts<br />

through regional Educational Service Centers<br />

(ESCs).<br />

“This donation helps provide masks for<br />

students, teachers and other school staff as<br />

they plan for the coming school year,” said<br />

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine. “Mask wearing<br />

is one of the ways to help slow the spread<br />

of COVID-19, along with frequent hand<br />

washing and maintaining social distancing.”<br />

These KN-95 or KN-90 masks are not<br />

medical grade, according to FEMA and Ohio<br />

EMA. There are about 12,000 masks per<br />

each shipping pallet. In total, the masks fill<br />

Meeting about <strong>Madison</strong><br />

Lake no-wake program<br />

eight semi-tractor trailers.<br />

“With the opening of schools around the<br />

corner, we’re delighted these masks will be<br />

put to good use by Ohio schools,” said Ohio<br />

EMA Executive Director Sima Merick.<br />

“The donated masks are another way the<br />

department and so many education partners<br />

are working to ensure the health and<br />

safety of students, educators, and staff<br />

when school buildings reopen,” said Paolo<br />

DeMaria, state superintendent of public instruction.<br />

The masks were received by Ohio EMA,<br />

a division of the Ohio Department of Public<br />

Safety, on April 3 and are being distributed<br />

to certain ESCs. School districts should contact<br />

their regional ESC for information on<br />

how to take possession of the masks.<br />

On Aug. 4, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine<br />

announced that the Ohio Department of<br />

Health will issue a health order requiring<br />

that children in grades K-12 wear face coverings<br />

while at school. The new mandate<br />

comes after the Ohio Children’s Hospital<br />

Association and American Academy of Pediatrics<br />

Ohio Chapter issued a joint letter<br />

recommending widespread use of masks in<br />

schools with the following exceptions:<br />

• children younger than 2 years old;<br />

• any child unable to remove the face<br />

covering without assistance;<br />

• a child with a significant<br />

behavioral/psychological issue undergoing<br />

treatment that is exacerbated specifically<br />

by the use of a facial covering (e.g. severe<br />

anxiety or a tactile aversion);<br />

• a child living with severe autism or<br />

with extreme developmental delay who may<br />

become agitated or anxious wearing a mask;<br />

• a child with a facial deformity that<br />

causes airway obstruction.<br />

“Without a vaccine, we are limited in the<br />

ways that we can protect the people of<br />

Ohio,” DeWine said. “For schools to have a<br />

fighting chance to stay open this fall, widespread<br />

face coverings for K-12 students will<br />

increase the odds that kids will go to school<br />

and stay in school.”<br />

The Ohio Department<br />

of Natural Resources<br />

(ODNR) will host a live,<br />

virtual public meeting on<br />

the <strong>Madison</strong> Lake pilot<br />

program for no-wake operation at <strong>Madison</strong><br />

Lake State Park on Aug. 9 at 3:30 p.m.<br />

In January 2019, an electric motor-only<br />

restriction was revised to allow any motorized<br />

watercraft to operate at no-wake speed<br />

on the waters of <strong>Madison</strong> Lake in <strong>Madison</strong><br />

County. This new lake management plan<br />

was implemented as a two-year pilot program<br />

which will expire this fall.<br />

Anyone interested in participating can<br />

request a meeting link by sending an email<br />

to deborah.green@dnr.state.oh.us. The webbased<br />

format (Microsoft Teams) will enable<br />

participants to submit their questions so<br />

that ODNR staff can respond in real time.<br />

Participants also can elect to call in to the<br />

meeting, but callers won’t be able to submit<br />

questions outside Microsoft<br />

Teams.<br />

During the meeting, the<br />

public, especially boaters<br />

who have used <strong>Madison</strong><br />

Lake in recent years, are encouraged to<br />

share their experiences and provide feedback<br />

on the pilot program. Comments also<br />

can be sent to watercraft@dnr.state.oh.us.<br />

Public comments and recommendations,<br />

along with public safety, recreational opportunities,<br />

regional economics, and environmental<br />

factors are key components considered<br />

when developing a lake management plan.<br />

The ODNR Division of Parks and Watercraft<br />

provides outdoor recreation and boating<br />

opportunities by balancing customer<br />

service, education, and conservation of<br />

Ohio’s 75 state parks and waterways.<br />

ODNR ensures a balance between wise<br />

use and protection of natural resources for<br />

the benefit of all. Visit ohiodnr.gov.

Financial assistance available to keep you cool<br />

The Ohio Development Services Agency<br />

and Bridges Community Action Partnership<br />

helps Ohioans maintain their utility service<br />

through the Home Energy Assistance Summer<br />

Crisis Program (HEAP).<br />

Program.<br />

“The primary goal of HEAP is to generate<br />

positive financial benefits by addressing<br />

the payment trouble of low-income customers<br />

based on lack of affordability,” said<br />

The program helps income-eligible Andrew Binegar, executive director.<br />

Ohioans pay an electric bill, purchase an air<br />

conditioning unit or fan, or pay for central<br />

air conditioning repairs. This year, the program<br />

runs through Sept. 30.<br />

In 2019, 722 families in Delaware, <strong>Madison</strong>,<br />

Union, Champaign, Logan and Shelby<br />

counties received assistance through the<br />

Home Energy Assistance Summer Crisis<br />

The program assists low-income households<br />

with an older household member (60<br />

years or older), or households that can provide<br />

physician documentation that cooling<br />

assistance is needed for a household member’s<br />

health. Examples of conditions can include<br />

lung disease, chronic obstructive<br />

pulmonary disease, and asthma. This year,<br />

Sheriff update on vandalism<br />

Kristy Zurbrick<br />

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

On Aug. 4, <strong>Madison</strong> County Sheriff John<br />

Swaney updated the <strong>Madison</strong> County commissioners<br />

on the investigation of damage<br />

to several properties in the area of Big Plain<br />

Circleville, Glade Run Road, Jones Marsh<br />

Road and Hume Lever Road. On July 26,<br />

someone damaged mailboxes, farm fields<br />

and road signs.<br />

An anonymous resident put up a $5,000<br />

reward for leads leading to the arrest of the<br />

culprit or culprits. The Sheriff’s Office has<br />

received several leads, Swaney said. No one<br />

offering information was interested in the<br />

reward money; they just wanted to help, he<br />

added. So far, the leads have not turned up<br />

any suspects.<br />

Swaney also reported that after looking<br />

at the financials for his dog warden division,<br />

he does not need to request an increase in<br />

dog license fees for 2021.<br />

“We’re holding our own,” he said about finances.<br />

That means dog license fees for next year<br />

will remain the same as they were this year:<br />

$16 for a one-year tag; $40 for a three-year<br />

tag; and $150 for a lifetime tag.<br />

households that were diagnosed with<br />

COVID-19 in <strong>2020</strong>, have a disconnect notice,<br />

have been shut off, or are trying to establish<br />

new service on their electric bill are<br />

also eligible for assistance.<br />

Ohioans can visit energyhelp.ohio.gov to<br />

start their application prior to their required<br />

appointment. This year, appointments<br />

can be held over the phone or in<br />

person at Bridges Community Action Partnership.<br />

To schedule an appointment call,<br />

(740) 852-3511.<br />

Eligible households can receive up to<br />

$500 if they are a customer of a regulated<br />

utility or $800 if they are a customer of unregulated<br />

utilities such as electric cooperatives<br />

and municipal utilities. The assistance<br />

is applied to their utility bill, or to purchase<br />

an air conditioning unit or fan, or pay for<br />

central air conditioning repairs. Ohioans<br />

Adoptable Pets<br />

The following are among the pets up for<br />

adoption at the Humane Society of <strong>Madison</strong><br />

County. If you are interested in adopting a<br />

pet, fill out an application online at<br />

www.hsmcohio.org or call the shelter at<br />

(614) 879-8368.<br />

Chica<br />

Chica was surrendered on March 3,<br />

<strong>2020</strong>, because her owners could no longer<br />

afford to care for her. She is an all-white,<br />

pitbull terrier mix, about 6 years old, and<br />

weighs in at about 44 pounds.<br />

Chica is full of personality, and she will<br />

not hesitate to tell you how she is feeling. If<br />

you walk away from her kennel, she will<br />

usually give a couple of yaps to tell you to<br />

come back and show her more love or take<br />

her for a walk. She is a big sweetheart and<br />

is all about her toys. She loves to wrestle<br />

and romp while playing with them.<br />

Chica has done quite well when introduced<br />

to other dogs, but she seems a bit on<br />

the outs when it comes to cats and little<br />

kids, so she would do better in a home without<br />

them. Chica is a love bug and has such<br />

an outgoing personality.<br />

Adoption fees for dogs vary: shelter dogs<br />

are $150, prison dogs are $200, puppies are<br />

$250, and popular pure-breeds are $400. The<br />

price includes: a Home Again microchip, set<br />

of shots, deworming, heartworm testing (if<br />

old enough), spay or neuter, and a one-year<br />

rabies shot (if old enough). All dogs adopted<br />

must leave with a county license at an additional<br />

cost of $17. All fees are cash only.<br />

Mittens<br />

Mittens has an estimated birthdate of<br />

April 21, <strong>2020</strong>. If you have ever wanted a<br />

pet that will talk to you about everything,<br />

Mittens is for you. This black-and-white delight<br />

loves curling up on a warm lap for cuddles<br />

just as much as she loves running<br />

around the house with her foster sisters.<br />

Mittens has been a favorite ever since she<br />

came into the shelter, with her easy-going<br />

personality and loving deposition. She<br />

must have a gross income at or below 175<br />

percent of the federal poverty guidelines to<br />

qualify for assistance. For a family of four,<br />

the annual income must be at or below<br />

$45,850.<br />

Also new this year, Ohioans enrolled in<br />

the Percentage of Income Payment Plan<br />

Plus Program (PIPP) who meet the above<br />

criteria may be eligible for assistance towards<br />

their default PIPP payment, first<br />

PIPP payment, central air conditioning repairs,<br />

or may receive an air conditioning<br />

unit and/or fan.<br />

For more information about the features<br />

of the Summer Crisis Program locally and<br />

what is needed to apply, contact Bridges<br />

Community Action at (740) 852-3511. Additional<br />

information can be found at www.energyhelp.ohio.gov<br />

or by calling (800)<br />

282-0880.<br />

Chica<br />

Mittens<br />

would do well with a family that will adore<br />

her just as much as she would adore them.<br />

The adoption fee is $60 for kittens and<br />

$35 for cats older than 11 months. It includes:<br />

a FeLV/FIV test, spay or neuter, set<br />

of shots, deworming, and a one-year rabies<br />

shot (if old enough). All fees are cash only.<br />

Humane Society Info<br />

The Humane Society of <strong>Madison</strong> County<br />

(HSMC) has decided to remain closed to the<br />

public. After watching the number of<br />

COVID-19 cases climb and with a small facility,<br />

organizers know they cannot assure<br />

a six-foot distance between visitors to the<br />

shelter.<br />

HSMC continues to accept applications<br />

for its adoptable pets, schedule meet-andgreets<br />

for adopters, and schedule appointments<br />

when possible for the public.<br />

Aug. 15: Bike helmet giveaway<br />

This year marks the 10th anniversary of<br />

the Ohio chapter of the American Academy<br />

of Pediatrics (AAP)’ “Put A Lid On It!” bike<br />

helmet safety awareness campaign. The<br />

program provides Ohio children with bike<br />

helmets and raises awareness for the importance<br />

of helmets in saving lives and preventing<br />

injuries.<br />

The Friends of <strong>Madison</strong> County Parks<br />

and Trails was tapped to distribute the helmets<br />

in <strong>Madison</strong> County at the annual<br />

Safety Expo bike rodeo. Due to cancellation<br />

of the Safety Expo, the distribution will<br />

take place at a drive-through style event in<br />

partnership with <strong>Madison</strong> County Public<br />

Health, <strong>Madison</strong> Health.<br />

The event is set for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Aug.<br />

15 in the <strong>Madison</strong> County Senior Center<br />

parking lot, 280 W. High St., London.<br />

“We are so excited to be able to help the<br />

Friends of <strong>Madison</strong> County Parks and<br />

Trails to distribute approximately 180 bike<br />

helmets of varying sizes to the children of<br />

our community, thanks to the Ohio AAP,”<br />

said Amber Snyder, <strong>Madison</strong> County Public<br />

Health health educator.<br />

“With children spending more time doing<br />

outdoor activities, such as riding bikes, during<br />

the pandemic, it is important to remember<br />

that wearing a helmet can reduce the<br />

risk of a head injury by 85 percent. It is also<br />

critical to make sure that the helmet fits the<br />

child’s head properly. The helmet should sit<br />

just above the eyebrows with the straps snug under the chin. It<br />

should not be able to move back and forth or side to side.”<br />

To reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, helmets are individually<br />

wrapped and will be distributed drive-through style. Participants<br />

are asked to stay in their cars while receiving helmets.<br />

Volunteers, which will be kept at a minimum, will be wearing facial<br />

coverings and using sanitizer between each guest.<br />

Helmets will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis<br />

until supplies run out. Thanks to the generosity of <strong>Madison</strong> Health,<br />

COVID Care Kits also will be available for families. These kits include<br />

hand sanitizer, sunscreen and a mask.<br />

MILLAR<br />

Timothy Michael Millar, 60, of Columbus Ohio, formerly of<br />

Thornville (Buckeye Lake) and West Jefferson, sadly and unexpectedly<br />

passed away on July 26, <strong>2020</strong>. Born on April 9, 1960, he was<br />

preceded in death by his parents, Donald L. and Melody A. Millar.<br />

He is survived by: his little canine buddy, Sammy; siblings, Monica<br />

(Mark) Hall, Jim (Debi), Karen Millar (Mike) Studebaker, Don<br />

West Jefferson High School in 1978 and earned his associate of arts<br />

degree from Columbus State. He worked as a tool and die maker<br />

and became an intricate machinist. He was a well-read, self-made<br />

man that could fix just about anything. His passion was being near<br />

ponds, lakes and rivers where he could fish and enjoy the peace of<br />

the outdoors. He was a loving brother, uncle and friend. He had a<br />

kind, caring, compassionate and generous heart, even when he had<br />

little means. He always volunteered a helping hand in any situation.<br />

He had a funny sense of humor and unique disposition. He<br />

will be sadly missed. Tim is gone from our sight, but never our<br />

memories…gone from our touch, but never our hearts. A private<br />

memorial service and inurnment will be held at Union Cemetery<br />
