More police protection in Canal Winchester?

Yes, once Canal Winchester City Council

holds two more readings on legislation contracting

for the services of an additional

deputy with the Fairfield County Sheriff’s

Department.

Under the current contract, Fairfield

County provides 11 deputies serving a total

of 376 hours per week. A pair of deputies patrol

the city 24 hours a day, seven days a

week with a third deputy working a shift

mutually agreed upon by the mayor and

sheriff.

If approved, the agreement adds another

deputy–under the same mutually-agreed

upon language–to exclusively patrol Canal

Winchester, bringing the total to 12 funded

deputies.

Subject to an annual appropriation by

council, the sheriff further agrees to a second

additional deputy beginning on Jan. 1,

2021, which would bring the total of funded

deputies exclusively contracted to the city to

13.

“I would personally feel more comfortable

if we had one more officer,” said Councilman

Mike Coolman. “We do have a plan.

We’re putting it into action, and this is the

first step.

The salary for each additional officer is

$88,000 and the sheriff’s department provides

all training programs, special equipment

and other regular sheriff’s office

facilities.

“This is a good start,” said Councilman

While stating his support for the agreement,

fellow Councilman Bob Clark said he

would feel better if he knew what the status

was with law enforcement provided by the

Madison Township Police and what taxpayers

are getting for the $600,000 they pay to

the township for police service.

Community Center update

On Aug. 31, the Director of the Ohio Department

of Health issued an order allowing

the re-opening of Adult Day Care and Senior

Centers effective Sept. 21.

While there are still a few hoops to jump

through, Contract Services Administrator

Bill Sims said the city is getting ready to reopen

the Frances Steube Community Center

on a limited basis.

“There is a laundry list of things we have

to do,” said Sims.

According to Sims, the community/senior

center staff will need to be tested for

COVID-19 on a bi-weekly basis and there

must be a written plan in place for building

use, including a maximum 50 percent capacity

and social distancing depending on

the activity.

“We’re certainly able to do it,” Sims said.

“These are established rules to protect the

most vulnerable. Right now, we’re required,

if we use it as a senior center, to maintain a

daily log (for contact tracing, if necessary).”

Although the center will be available for

rental, Sims said precautions need to be

taken to ensure no co-mingling of groups before

the area is sanitized.

“It shouldn’t be too difficult if we coordinate,”

said Simms.

Construction at two Scioto

River boat access points

Improvements are scheduled for two

Scioto River boat access locations in

Pickaway County, according to the Ohio

Department of Natural Resources Division

of Wildlife.

Construction will last through late fall

or early winter. Both locations will be

closed during construction.

The locations under construction

include one in South Bloomfield at State

Route 316, and another at the Elmon

Richards Wildlife Area boat ramp. These

ramps will provide boater access to miles of

prime fishing, hunting, and wildlife viewing

areas. The Scioto River corridor is

home to a diverse number of species

including bald eagles, beavers, mink, spotted

bass, smallmouth bass, and flathead

catfish.

The South

Bloomfield location

is scheduled to

receive a new concrete

boat ramp. The

new access will include a gravel drive and

parking lot to accommodate small trailers.

This ramp is designed for paddle crafts and

small boats and will be similar to the existing

Mackey Ford Wildlife Area ramp six

river miles upstream.

Construction work will upgrade the

Elmon Richards Wildlife Area ramp in

Circleville at State Route 22. The current

ramp was built in 2005 and the concrete

will be reconfigured to better accommodate

boats. The gravel drive will be replaced

and drainage improved to fix low, often wet

areas. This ramp is 10 river miles downstream

from the South Bloomfield access.

The project is funded through a gas tax

on marine fuels and the Sport Fish

Restoration Act, an excise tax on fishing

equipment administered through the

Division of Wildlife and U.S. Fish &

Wildlife Service.

Wildlife’s research and management programs

Groveport Road studies

Groveport City Engineer Steve Farst

said two studies will be conducted along

the Groveport Road corridor. One is a safety

study between Greenpointe Drive and

the Kroger entrance to identify and design

intersection improvements at Greenpointe

Drive and at State Route 317. The other is

a planning study of the thoroughfare route

between Bixby Road and State Route 317.

New project funded

Governor Mike DeWine and Lt.

Governor Jon Husted announced the

approval of assistance for the following

project: Zenni USA (Zenni Optical) expects

to create 189 full-time positions, generating

$8.2 million in new annual payroll as a

result of the company’s new project in the

village of Obetz.

Zenni Optical is an online retailer that

sells prescription and non-prescription eyeglasses,

sunglasses, sports glasses, and

goggles. The Ohio Tax Credit Authority

approved a 1.557 percent, 10-year Job

Creation Tax Credit for this project.

Hamilton Twp. Schools offer free student meals

By Linda Dillman

Staff Writer

A federal grant is providing a free

breakfast and lunch for all students in

kindergarten through 12th grade throughout

the Hamilton Local Schools district.

The service started Sept. 8 and is funded

through the USDA National School

Lunch Program. It continues until the end

of the year or when USDA grant funds are

exhausted. After that, only students verified

to receive free or reduced-cost breakfast

and lunch will continue to do so.

“The program provides meals, not only

for students who qualify for free or reduced

meals, but also for each and every one of

our students,” said Hamilton Schools

Treasurer Adam Collier.

According to Collier, the district applied

for the grant last spring and is reimbursed

for both breakfast and lunch meals served

to students during the funding period.

There is no change in the components of

the free meals.

“We participate in the National School

Lunch Program and follow the meal pattern

for lunch and breakfast. Grant money

would not affect the meal pattern regulations,”

said Mary Anne Hillerich, food services

coordinator.

Hillerich said the four district school

buildings normally serve approximately

2,000 students for lunch and 1,400 for

breakfast. There are 3,000 students

enrolled in the district.

The regular cost for lunch at the high

school is $2.75, at the middle school it is

$2.50, the cost at the intermediate building

is $2.25 and the price for a lunch at the elementary

school is $2.

Southeast Branch Library

is open for browsing

By Rick Palsgrove

Managing Editor

People love libraries and the ongoing

coronavirus pandemic put a crimp in that

love affair when the Columbus

Metropolitan Library system closed all its

branches on March 13.

But hope springs eternal for area book

and lovers of information because, as of

Sept. 22, the Southeast Branch of the

Columbus Metropolitan Library, located at

3980 S. Hamilton Road, opened for browsing.

“Like all CML locations, the Southeast

Branch plays a vital role in the community

it serves with services like public computer

access, Job Help, Homework Help, and

Reading Buddies,” said Gregg Dodd, director

of marketing for the Columbus

Metropolitan Library. “During the COVID-

19 pandemic, the branch has worked even

harder to meet the needs of customers with

curbside pickup and free copying, scanning

and faxing services. The Southeast Branch

and all other locations are open for limited

services. The Southeast Branch opened

ahead of 10 other CML locations.”

Dodd said the Southeast Branch is currently

open for limited services, which

program is offered on the first and third

Saturdays of each month from 9 a.m to

noon in the parking lot of

Winchester/Indian Trail Elementary

Schools, 6767 and 6865 Gender Road,

Canal Winchester.

Participants are asked to sort items into

two categories prior to drop-off.

Local drop-off recycling

includes: browsing the collection; using the

public computers; print, copy, scan and

faxing; getting job help; picking up items;

returning items; and getting Grab and Go

books.

“Curbside Pick-up remains available as

well,” said Dodd.

Due to the pandemic, ongoing safety

precautions remain in place. According to

Dodd, the following restrictions and services

remain unavailable for customers:

•Customers over the age of five are

required to wear a face covering.

•Meeting rooms are unavailable for

booking and use.

•All in-person programming has been

paused (such as Storytimes).

•The number of customers in the building

are limited to ensure effective social

distancing. The library staff will let customers

know if they need to wait.

•There is a one hour limit on the use of

public computers.

Dodd said the normal daily attendance

at the Southeast Branch when it was in

operation before the COVID outbreak was

around 650 visits.

According to Collier, during the preceding

fiscal year–July 1, 2019 through June

30, 2020–the district received $971,565 in

federal assistance for its free/reduced

lunch program. Hillerich said 72 percent of

the student population received free or

reduced meals for the 2019 through 2020

school year.

“So far, we are at 58 percent for this

school year, but we are still receiving applications

from families,” said Hillerich.

In addition to cafeteria meals, hot

lunches and go-to breakfasts are delivered

via daily buses at different locations

throughout the district. A cafeteria worker

rides alongside the bus driver to help deliver

and keep track of students picking up

meals.

No Apple Butter Day festival, just the sale of apple butter

By Rick Palsgrove

Managing Editor

Groveport’s Apple Butter Day will not be the same this

year, but the spirit of the day can live on in the community

in spite of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The festival has been a mainstay and focal point for the

community since October 1974 when it began as a simple

gathering of friends cooking apples over an open fire in a

church parking lot. One can just sense the in the autumn

air as September turns into October that it is time for

Apple Butter Day.

The festival has grown over the years, with the city’s

help, into the large, popular festival it has become.

However, like many things in this coronavirus pandemic

dominated year, Groveport’s Apple Butter Day is going

to be a lot different this year. A whole lot different.

This version of Apple Butter Day

“It’s going to be a scaled down event,” said Groveport

City Administrator B.J. King.

King said he and representatives of the Groveport

Heritage Society met with the Franklin County Health

Department to come up with a way to somehow make

Apple Butter Day happen this year.

The result is that this year the festival itself will not

exist as there will be no craft booths, no historical displays,

no bands, no entertainment (except for the possibility of

piped up bluegrass music), no public attendance, no anything

at Apple Butter Day except for the drive through

sale of jars of apple butter.

City officials had hoped to shoot off the unused Fourth

of July fireworks on the evening of Apple Butter Day.

However, city officials stated on Aug. 24 that the Apple

Butter Day fireworks are now cancelled.

According to information provided to the city by

the Groveport Heritage Society, jars of apple butter

will be sold for $5 per jar from three or four drive

through stations set up along Wirt Road in front of

the Sharp’s Landing building and the log house on

Oct. 10. Buyers will drive down Wirt Road from Main

Street and be guided to a specific pick up station and

exit through College Street or Rohr Road. There is a

limit of two jars of apple butter purchased per family

and payment is in cash only. Those wishing to purchase

apple butter must call 614-836-3333 to order

and arrange a pick up time within a two hour window.

Pick up times are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. After 4

p.m. apple butter will be sold without appointments.

A small group of volunteers made apple butter in

Heritage Park on Oct. 3.

“It’s important we keep the annual tradition of

Apple Butter Day and its unbroken streak of being

held since 1974, even though it is significantly different

this year,” said King.

Remembering Apple Butter Day

In normal years, Apple Butter Day is rich in tradition

featuring historical demonstrations, crafters,

and great food - especially the piping hot, freshly

stirred apple butter slathered on homemade bread.

Apples were important to Ohio’s and Groveport’s

pioneer agricultural economy and daily life. Apples

could be stored year round and travelled well when

shipped over the rough roads or the slow moving

freight boats on the Ohio and Erie Canal.

Remember, Apple Butter Day encourages us to

slow down, enjoy friends and family, embrace the

pleasures of simple foods, and reinforce our links to

the past.

Moses-Mouser Eye Care

Dr. Joshua Morris is a board-certified Optometrist

who grew up in Bellville, Ohio. He

completed his undergraduate degree at the

University of Akron, where he graduated

magna cum laude with honors.

Dr. Morris attended The Ohio State University

College of Optometry and graduated cum laude with honors to receive

his Doctor of Optometry Degree in May 2019. After completing his

studies, he was awarded the “Primary Vision Care Clinical Excellence

Award”, in 2019.

Dr. Morris is a member of the American Optometric Association, the

Ohio Optometric Association, and The Ohio State Alumni Association.

He is excited to practice full scope optometry, diagnosing and treating

a variety of ocular disorders and diseases in patients of all ages, but has

a special interest in contact lenses and ocular disease.

On a personal note, Dr. Morris and his wife Tess, enjoy spending time

with their family, friends, and their Bernese Mountain dog Maverick,

cheering on The Ohio State Buckeyes, trying new foods, and exploring

Columbus breweries.

Q: Are contact lenses right for me?

A: 9/10 people who wear glasses are good candidates for contact lenses.

Contact lenses can correct for nearsightedness, farsightedness,

astigmatism, and even help you decrease your dependency on readers.

They can provide a wider field of view and the lenses won’t fog up in cold

weather like glasses. Contact lenses are also a great option for when you’re

exercising or playing sports where glasses could get in the way.

Q: How often should someone who

wears contact lenses get an eye exam?

A: Someone who wears contact lenses should have a comprehensive

dilated eye exam at least once a year. Contact lenses are medical devices

and need to be properly fitted and assessed by an eye care professional.

Schedule your contact lens exam today

with Dr. Morris.

Trick-or-treat to be held in CW

By Rick Palsgrove

Managing Editor

Trick-or-treat will take place in Canal

Winchester, but other familiar Halloween

festivities will not due to the ongoing coronavirus

pandemic.

According to Mayor Mike Ebert, trick-ortreat

will be held Thursday, Oct. 29 from

5:30- 7:30 p.m.

“As always, make sure you are going to

homes of people you know, and for this year

maybe not go to as many homes as you normally

would,” said Ebert. “Trick-or-treaters

should wear a mask and keep a safe distance

of six feet or more from others.”

State guidelines/recommendations

The Ohio Department of Health issued

guidelines and recommendations regarding

Halloween festivities this year due to the

ongoing coronavirus pandemic, which include:

cancelling or avoiding hayrides and

haunted houses; not holding large Halloween

parties; wearing protective face

masks and practicing social distancing of at

least six feet; using hand sanitizer often;

avoid activities like bobbing for apples; and

select outdoor events or those that allow

staying in your vehicle.

The Ohio Department of Health also recommends

people be cautious regarding

trick-or-treating. It suggests holding drive

through trick-or-treating events, holding

drive by costume contests, leaving treats for

friends and neighbors, decorating your

home and hiding treats for your kids, and

holding costume contests and pumpkin

carry-offs virtually online.

If trick-or-treating door-to-door the department

states parents should limit the

number of houses visited, wiping off candy

wrappers with sanitizer when you arrive

home, allow kids to only eat factory wrapped

treats and avoid homemade treats by

strangers, and if your child is at greater

risk for COVID contact your doctor before

participating in Halloween activities. Community

members could consider leaving

treats on doorsteps or on an outside table.

Precautions: wear a mask if near others,

carry hand sanitizer for use during trick-ortreating,

limit the number of people in a

group, limit those in a group to family members,

those passing out candy should wear a

mask.

For the full list of guidelines pertaining

to Halloween, visit coronavirus.ohio.gov/static/responsible/celebrating-halloween.pdf.

Cancelled CW Halloween events

•According to Larry Flowers of the Canal

Winchester Area Historical Society, the traditional

Historic Ghost Tour will not be held

this year because of the pandemic. Plans are

for it to return in October 2021.

The popular Historic Ghost Tour features

historic Canal Winchester locations with

costumed historical characters who depict

people from the town’s past.

•The annual VFW 10523 Halloween

Community Party will not be held this year.

The event is normally held at the Community

Center, located at 22 S. Trine St., but

the center has been closed for social gatherings

since March because of the pandemic.

Ebert met with a representative of VFW

10523 and said, “There doesn’t appear at

this time to be much hope for the party. The

party normally brings in 50 to 75 kids plus

their parents in a normal year. If we were

to get that many, we would be required to

turn away about half of the kids. Turning

them away would be a very bad feeling for

the us, the kids and their parents.”

City charter review update

By Linda Dillman

Staff Writer

After a slow start due to the outbreak of COVID-19,

Canal Winchester’s City Charter Review Commission is

kicking to high gear and holding regular meetings as

part of the process to revisit the city charter every 10

years.

Timed to coincide with the census, the 11-member

and two alternate commission meets during the same

year the U.S. Census is held and is comprised of six people

appointed by city council and five appointed by the

mayor. Appointees serve until they complete the task of

evaluating the city charter and deliver their final report

to council.

Commission members review charter rules and procedures

regarding corporate power; council powers; legislative

procedures; the publication of ordinances and

resolutions; administrative departments; boards and

commissions; finance, taxation and debt; referendums

and recalls; and ethics, campaign financing and the

process to remove officials.

The current charter was adopted by voters on Nov.

2, 2010. It became effective with Canal Winchester’s official

status as a city on April 29, 2011.

According to the present document, in order to “have

the benefits of municipal home rule and exercise all of

the powers of local self-government conferred under the

Constitution and Statutes of the State of Ohio,” and “to

preserve the traditional and historic values of the community,”

citizens vote on proposed changes to the charter.

Once the Charter Review Commission completes its

process, their recommendations are forwarded to council

for action. The commission does not determine what

is put on the ballot. Council reviews the commission’s

recommendations and then determines what moves forward

to the ballot.

In the past, changes proposed by the commission and

approved by council usually appeared on the general

election ballot in the same year the commission was convened.

However, the commission is only required to

complete their work by the end of the year in which they

are convened.

While there was not enough time to make the Nov. 3

ballot this year, any proposed changes approved by

CWHS school store opens

By Linda Dillman

Staff Writer

Canal Winchester High School students

desiring school supplies, spirit wear, or a

gift for a special friend need look no further

than around the corner in their school building

with the opening Sept. 21 of a new

school store–the Canal Corner.

Run by business students in teacher

David King’s classes, the store offers bags,

pennants, hats, supplies, trinkets and a corner

where BrockStrong items are sold,

which King said provides a nice tie to the

community.

“Some things are still in the works as

COVID brought a slowdown to a lot of

things,” King said. “We had cabinets put in

and there will be a lot of silhouettes for

every sport we have, including band. We’re

still working, but we’ll get there.”

Before the end of school last year, students

were asked what they would like to

see on the store’s shelves. In preparing for

stocking, staffing, and running Canal Corner,

King’s business classes did market research

and are studying aspects of human

resources.

Profits earned in the store will be put

back into the Business Professionals of

America organization and then used where

needed in the school.

October 4, 2020 - MESSENGER - PAGE 9

“Enola Holmes” is entertaining for all ages

While preparing to watch and review a

new movie or television show in which I

have aged, allegedly, past its target demographic,

I often try to experience it through

the lens of a younger version of myself.

And in order to tap into the mindset of

that bygone era, I ask a series of questions

during and after the viewing.

They include whether my younger self

would have liked the characters or have

been annoyed by them; whether my

younger self would have found more enjoyment

in the story being told or by crafting

a different version in real-time; or whether

my younger self would be embarrassed if

the older version publicly stated that she

liked it.

For the most part, the younger version

and the current form can find common

ground through similar but evolved interests

and that certainly applies in the case

of “Enola Holmes,” a new film streaming on

Netflix that is geared toward young adults

but can be enjoyed by all age demographics.

There is plenty here in the form of entertainment

to go around, which is actually

surprising because my adult self thought

the opposite based on its trailer.

In this charming film, Millie Bobby

Brown plays the titular character who is

the youngest of the famed Holmes children

— brother Sherlock (played by Henry

The Reel Deal

Dedra

Cordle

Cavill) is making a

name for himself in the

world of criminology

and the elder Mycroft

(played by Sam Claflin)

is known throughout

polite society as a man

of impeccable character

and good standing.

While much is

known about the

dashing and intelligent

brothers, little is known about their

sister, and that is just the way their mother

wants it to be.

After the death of her husband and following

the relocation of her sons to the city,

Eudoria Holmes (Helena Bonham Carter)

decided that she did not want to raise her

daughter in the traditional sense. Gone were

the finishing schools with their rules and

deference to a man’s opinion and in its place

were studies on the sciences, martial arts

and the importance of speaking one’s mind.

Through this unorthodox education,

especially in Victorian times, Enola flourished

but formed a deep attached to her

mother in lieu of friendships with children

her age. Knowing that her child had to be

more independent, Eudoria did the only

thing she could think of: cut the strings to

make it happen.

On the morning of her 16th birthday,

Enola wakes to find her mother has disappeared.

Believing that her brother

Sherlock could solve this mystery in two

seconds flat, she requests that he and

Mycroft return home. When they arrive,

Enola discovers that the only thing they

want to do is fix her.

“She is such a mess,” declares Mycroft

as he hires a reputable governess to drag

her off to a finishing school.

Before such a travesty can occur, Enola

puts her own sleuthing skills to work and

uncovers some clues as to her mother’s

potential whereabouts.

Wanting to know why she left (and not

wanting to go to boarding school and learn

how to “embroider and hem handkerchiefs”),

she runs away to London to solve

this mystery. But like all good mysteries,

there is a secondary mystery afoot that

involves a missing young Lord (Louis

Partridge), a reform bill and an underground

movement set to shake up society.

With her brothers on her heels, along with

an apparent assassin, Enola has to make

sense of all of these semi-related threads

while finding her footing in a new world

that is openly hostile to spirited young

women like herself.

Though its plot is a little clunky

and darker plot threads are dropped

in favor of simplicity, the charm of its

lead character and the chemistry

between the cast members are good

enough to propel it past any bumps

that occur in this origin story.

Based on a series of novels by Nancy

Springer (though primarily adapted from

“The Case of the Missing Marquess”),

“Enola Holmes” is a great starting point for

a planned movie franchise. Though its plot

is a little clunky and darker plot threads

are dropped in favor of simplicity, the

charm of its lead character and the chemistry

between the cast members are good

enough to propel it past any bumps that

occur in this origin story.

With wit and an overarching sense of

sweetness, “Enola Holmes” is a fun movie

to watch, though it is about 25 minutes too

long.

But despite a few pacing and dropped

thread gripes, it is an entertaining film

that almost all age groups should be able to

enjoy.

Canal Winchester hydrant flushing

Canal Winchester’s Division of Water

will flush fire hydrants between 8 a.m. and

3:30 p.m., Monday — Friday, through Oct. 9.

The water department offers tips for residents

when crews are flushing hydrants in

your area:

•If you see a hydrant being flushed on

your street, avoid running tap water, washing

machines or dishwashers until flushing

in your area is complete.

•If you see hydrant flushing crews working,

please drive carefully and treat them

like any other road construction crew.

During or immediately following hydrant

flushing, tap water may appear discolored.

Although a slight discoloration may last for

a few hours, it does not affect the taste or

quality of the water. This discoloration only

affects the appearance of the water and

poses no health threat.

Should you notice discoloration or other

side effects from hydrant flushing, the

water department suggests the following:

•If you encounter discolored water, shut

your water off and wait several minutes.

After waiting, check the clarity by running

cold water for a few minutes to allow new

water to flow into your pipes. If the water is

still discolored, wait a few minutes and

check again. In some cases, it may be a few

hours before the water is completely clear.

•Avoid washing laundry during scheduled

flushing hours. After hydrants in your

area have been flushed, wait until water

runs clear from your tap, then begin with a

load of dark laundry before doing lights or

whites.

•If water pressure or volume seems low,

check your faucet screens for trapped particles.

Division of Water at 614-837-5623 or

614 837-7716.
