Hamilton Schools stay<br />

in hybrid learning mode<br />

By Rick Palsgrove<br />

Managing Editor<br />

COVID-19 cases are on the rise, but<br />

Hamilton Local Schools are waiting to hear<br />

from Governor Mike DeWine before<br />

switching to 100 percent online instruction.<br />

“Hamilton Local Schools will remain in<br />

a hybrid operating model of instruction<br />

until advised by Governor DeWine or<br />

health department officials to move to a<br />

remote operating model,” said Hamilton<br />

Schools Director of Public Relations Vince<br />

Payne. “To this point, all area health<br />

department officials have told us that students<br />

are safer in school because we can<br />

ensure they are following guidelines related<br />

to masks and distancing.”<br />

Payne said district staff continually<br />

works with local officials to monitor cases<br />

within the school district boundaries.<br />

“Our community has done an excellent<br />

job throughout this school year in following<br />

guidelines to minimize cases throughout<br />

our district,” said Payne.<br />

As of Nov. 18, district officials report<br />

there are five active cases in the entire<br />

school district of people who have tested<br />

positive for COVID-19 .<br />

“We update our current COVID-19<br />

cases report at 3 p.m. daily,” said Payne.<br />

To see these updated numbers, go<br />

online to hamilton-local.k12.oh.us.<br />

In a video address to district residents,<br />

Hamilton Local Schools Superintendent<br />

Mark Tyler said that, at any given time<br />

under the hydrid model of instruction the<br />

school buildings are at about one third of<br />

capacity, which enables social distancing<br />

“Our community has done an<br />

excellent job throughout this school<br />

year in following guidelines to minimize<br />

cases throughout our district.”<br />

- Vince Payne<br />

Director of Public Relations<br />

to be achieved.<br />

Tyler noted that a big factor in maintaining<br />

the hybrid model of instruction,<br />

which is a mix of classroom and online<br />

instruction, is the availability of teaching<br />

staff.<br />

“If our teachers start to get sick, it won’t<br />

take having many off work before there are<br />

not enough substitute teachers to come in<br />

and efficiently manage students,” said<br />

Tyler. “This applies to transportation also.”<br />

Tyler said everyone throughout the district<br />

is doing a good job of handling the<br />

ongoing coronavirus pandemic and added,<br />

“Everyone stay safe.”<br />

Little Libraries thrive<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Little Libraries are popping up across<br />

the Hamilton Township area bringing<br />

the opportunity for children of all ages to<br />

enjoy finding and taking a book home.<br />

Organizer Karen Schutte began the<br />

project in 2019, along with the help of<br />

Girl Scout and Boy Scout troops, churches,<br />

an Obetz market, and volunteers.<br />

“I knew that the Columbus<br />

Metropolitan Library had ceased it’s<br />

bookmobile service in our area and also<br />

our district’s participation in their<br />

Summer Reading program was very low,”<br />

said Schutte, who is a library media specialist<br />

at Hamilton Elementary. “I<br />

thought having Little Libraries in each of<br />

our neighborhood pockets might be a better<br />

way for our kiddos to get reading<br />

materials. The Hamilton Elementary<br />

PTO provided financial support of $300<br />

to begin building our first 4 structures.”<br />

Girl Scout troop leader Violet<br />

Callahan said her scouts were looking for<br />

a service project when she overheard<br />

Schutte at school talking about the<br />

library project. Her daughter Kendra<br />

said she and her sister helped paint the<br />

unfinished structures before they were<br />

placed around town.<br />

“We’ve had a huge feedback from the<br />

community,” said Callahan “and we’re<br />

trying to get more placed throughout the<br />

community. We’ve had tons of donations<br />

and it’s always good for kids to read.<br />

People who live near them tell us they’re<br />

busy with people borrowing books.”<br />

Holiday Help available in Hamilton Township<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Seventeen years ago, a community partnership in<br />

Hamilton Township stepped up to help out needy families<br />

and, while the group itself dissolved a few years later, four<br />

core members keep the program going because need never<br />

goes away.<br />

Starting out small in 2003 while the group learned the<br />

limits on what it could do, Hamilton Local Schools Public<br />

Relations Director Vince Payne said approximately a<br />

dozen families who received clothes, gifts, and staple food<br />

items the first year.<br />

“The program began by supporting 10-12 families and<br />

grew to annually support 60-65 families, totaling nearly<br />

300 children,” said Payne. “The program was initially<br />

based at the Hoover Y Park when we had less than 30 families<br />

served. When the program grew to more than 30 families,<br />

we moved to what used to be Grace Ministries<br />

Church on Rathmell Road. While the program was based<br />

there, it grew to the 60-65 families we now support annually.”<br />

Organizations participating in the <strong>2020</strong> Holiday Help<br />

program are Hamilton Local Schools faculty and staff,<br />

Payne said there is a need in most communities for programs<br />

like Holiday Help that support families during the<br />

Vince Payne<br />

holidays and even year-round. There are a variety of reasons<br />

that the need for help arises.<br />

“adopt” an individual or family and go shopping for their<br />

items. Payne said it is up to the person or organization on<br />

“We are seeing more families needing support due to<br />

what they want to do and Holiday Help organizers are<br />

unemployment caused by the pandemic,” said Payne.<br />

always ready to work with those who want to donate their<br />

“They are trying to work their limited resources to keep<br />

time or resources.<br />

their homes, keep their heat on, and keep their families<br />

School guidance counselors identify families and reach<br />

fed. We are doing what we can, with the resources we<br />

out to offer the program’s support. Holiday Help workers<br />

have, to help as many families in our community as possible.<br />

Programs like this help take the stress off of families<br />

will distribute items to families on Dec. 17, so they have<br />

time to prepare for the holiday.<br />

who may be trying to decide between paying bills or providing<br />

their children something for the holiday. Programs<br />

“We can always use support through adoption or donation,<br />

and we want to give thanks to all those who make<br />

like this bring communities together to lift up those who<br />

this program possible each year,” said Payne.<br />

need a boost. Programs like this can provide hope to those<br />

CW’s anti-racism law delayed<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Canal Winchester City Council’s plans to adopt a<br />

resolution condemning racism in the city was put on<br />

hold following last-minute information and questions<br />

during its Nov. 16 work session.<br />

“This is an opportunity to take this a step closer,”<br />

said Councilman Pat Lynch, who suggested getting<br />

together with the community and setting a date where<br />

everyone can meet together.<br />

Council members expressed a desire to present a<br />

single uniformed resolution and want to find common<br />

ground on which the whole group can agree.<br />

Councilman Mike Coolman said he would still like to<br />

hear information from Franklin County.<br />

“Franklin County manages a lot larger turf with a<br />

lot more people,” Coolman said. “I would like one uniform<br />

piece of legislation to move forward.”<br />

Council President Mike Walker said COVID-19 and<br />

waiting for Franklin County (for a workable arrangement<br />

to meet with council) are a big part of the wait to<br />

pass a resolution.<br />

“It’s important to get this correct and right,” Walker<br />

said.<br />

Councilwoman Jill Amos, who collaborated with<br />

Councilman Chuck Milliken on the resolution, said<br />

council needs to set a deadline for action. She felt the<br />

community is losing faith in the council.<br />

“I think we need to keep a solid promise to our community,”<br />

said Amos.<br />

Councilman Will Bennett said it was in the best<br />

interest of council to present one item, but cautioned<br />

“School Help” at library<br />

The Columbus Metropolitan Library - <strong>South</strong> High<br />

Branch has a new School Help webpage, where K-12<br />

students can get help with homework and reading The<br />

webpage features: Online K-12 homework help, with<br />

staff ready to answer homework questions and help<br />

with reading practice via text, chat, and phone<br />

Monday through Friday 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Video tutorials<br />

with step-by-step instructions on how to use key homework<br />

tools. HelpNow, a resource that offers 24-hour<br />

they were not “ready to run” yet. He advised council to<br />

set its sights and make it achievable.<br />

“This is something that will not be done with one<br />

ordinance,” said Bennett. “People need to know this is<br />

our first step.”<br />

Milliken, Amos and Lynch planned to meet before<br />

the next council meeting and discuss the resolution<br />

before presenting suggested language to the full council.<br />

Water and sewer fees<br />

Council approved a pair of ordinances setting water<br />

and sanitary sewer use fees until 2022. The domestic<br />

water and sprinkler rates per 1,000 gallons are currently<br />

$6.33 and will not rise for more than a year for users outside<br />

the special water allocation district.<br />

The bulk water rate charge per 1,000 gallons<br />

remains steady through the beginning of 2022 at $8.90.<br />

The sanitary sewer user fee charge is $5.88. With the<br />

approval of the ordinance and forgoing a scheduled fee<br />

increase in 2021, the rate will not change until Jan. 1,<br />

2022. Both utility funds exceeded anticipated fund performances<br />

over the past two years, which reduced the<br />

need for a scheduled increase.<br />

Leaf pick-up<br />

The city of Canal Winchester will provide curbside<br />

leaf collection through Dec. 11. To avoid water backup<br />

in the event of rain, leaf piles must be placed behind<br />

the curb along the street. Leaf piles may contain leaves<br />

only, as sticks, grass trimmings and other yard waste<br />

can cause damage to leaf collection equipment. Regular<br />

yard waste will continue to be picked up by Rumpke of<br />

Ohio during scheduled trash collection.<br />

access to study tools and test preparation, plus online<br />

tutors available every day from 2-11 p.m.<br />

Metro Parks’ prairies rise from the ashes<br />

Controlled<br />

fires help to<br />

enrich the<br />

land<br />

By Rick Palsgrove<br />

Managing Editor<br />

Winter’s cold is coming,<br />

but some Metro Parks are in<br />

for a hot time.<br />

Prairie areas in a few of<br />

the area Metro Parks will<br />

undergo what is described as<br />

a “prescribed burn,” where<br />

controlled fires are set to<br />

“inhibit invasive species and<br />

boost new growth of native<br />

plants in prairies, grasslands,<br />

and oak woods,” according to<br />

Metro Parks Assistant<br />

Resource Manager Carrie<br />

Morrow.<br />

Metro Parks Public<br />

Information Manager Peg<br />

Hanley said two such burns recently took place at<br />

Pickerington Ponds and Battelle Darby Creek. She said<br />

Prairie Oaks had a prescribed burn earlier this year, but,<br />

locally, Three Creeks, Slate Run, and Walnut Woods will<br />

not have a prairie burn this year.<br />

“We burn in the spring and fall in the dormant seasons<br />

- spring before plants and grasses have grown and fall<br />

A worker sets a controlled prairie burn in one of the Metro Parks.<br />

after the frost has killed the plants above ground,” said<br />

Hanley. “Prairies recover quickly. After an early spring<br />

burn, it will green up almost immediately. Nature is<br />

resilient.”<br />

Hanley said the burns are conducted by members of the<br />

burn team, which is made up of park technicians and staff<br />

from the resource management team.<br />

According to information provided by Metro Parks, the<br />

prescribed burns:<br />

•Maintain the health of existing<br />

natural areas, restore nutrients, habitat<br />

restoration, control invasive plants<br />

and shrubs, and encourage new<br />

growth of native vegetation.<br />

•Are better than mowing because<br />

they are a natural management tool<br />

used throughout history and are a<br />

force much like wind or water that<br />

imitates nature. Native Americans<br />

and pioneers in the past set controlled<br />

prairie fires to help the land. Also,<br />

prairie habitats developed over centuries<br />

where natural fires played a<br />

role in maintaining areas for a diversity<br />

of species.<br />

In an online blog written for Metro<br />

Parks, Morrow stated the prescribed<br />

burns are performed on a rotating<br />

basis in selected parks every two to<br />

five years. The burned areas promote<br />

new growth and germinating seeds, as<br />

well as eliminate young trees, shrubs,<br />

and other invasive plant species. The<br />

fires allow prairie wildflowers and<br />

grasses to rejuvenate and spread.<br />

When asked how the prescribed<br />

prairie burns affect the wildlife in the<br />

burn areas, Hanley said, “To protect<br />

wildlife, our staff conducts a walk<br />

through of the site before burning which causes some animals<br />

to exit the area. We begin slow and light the main<br />

head fire last. Birds simply fly off. Deer and other mammals<br />

can scurry and bound away quickly and mice and<br />

voles can burrow in the ground.”<br />

CW bed tax grant program<br />

news briefs<br />

The city of Canal Winchester is now accepting<br />

applications for its 2021 Transient Occupancy Tax<br />

to Destination: Canal Winchester, the designated<br />

visitors and convention bureau for Canal<br />

Winchester. The second half of the tax has been designated<br />

by Canal Winchester City Council to fund the<br />

annual Bed Tax Grant Program.<br />

First railroad trip, 1868<br />

There’s something about railroad tracks<br />

and trains that seem intertwined with being<br />

an American.<br />

Maybe it’s the wanderlust in us that gets<br />

heightened when we see the sunlight shining<br />

on those steel rails extending off into the<br />

horizon. Maybe it’s the power and strength of<br />

a railroad’s industrial nature that speaks to<br />

us. Maybe it’s how trains are chronicled and<br />

romanticized in songs, stories, and photos<br />

that reaches something deep within us. That<br />

urge to, “light out for the territory,” as Mark<br />

Twain wrote, is strong in us.<br />

Local historian David Meyer, recently<br />

shared an interesting old newspaper clipping<br />

with me about the history of the railroad in<br />

southeastern Franklin County.<br />

“I thought you might enjoy reading about<br />

the Hocking Valley Railroad in 1868,” Meyer<br />

wrote to me in an email where he had<br />

attached a digital version of the news clipping<br />

from the Ohio State Journal dated July<br />

17, 1868.<br />

The article reported on riding along on the<br />

first trip on the Columbus and Hocking<br />

Valley Railroad, which at that point ran from<br />

Columbus to Canal Winchester.<br />

This rail line opened from Columbus<br />

through Groveport and Canal Winchester in<br />

the summer of 1868 and, when completed a<br />

few months later, ran further southeast to<br />

Lancaster and Nelsonville. The railroad<br />

proved to be a boon to Canal Winchester and<br />

Groveport because it provided both towns<br />

with a faster way of shipping farm goods and<br />

freight as well as offering swifter passenger<br />

service than the Ohio and Erie Canal. The<br />

steel rails’ efficiency eventually drove the<br />

canal out of favor and business.<br />

But, back to the Ohio State Journal article<br />

of 1868. Besides the news reporter, the others<br />

on this trip were: M. M. Greene, Hocking<br />

Valley Railroad President; B. E. Smith,<br />

President of the C, C. & I. C. Railway; Col.<br />

Manypenny, one of the lessees of the Ohio<br />

Canals; Barker Brooks, Theodore Comstock,<br />

John Graham, John J. Janney, and Major W.<br />

C. Faxon.<br />

The article begins: “Bless me, this is pleasant,<br />

riding on a rail! Yesterday a very pleasant<br />

little party of gentlemen had the satisfaction<br />

of making a trial trip as far as the track<br />

is laid. The rails are down to within sight of<br />

Canal Winchester, near 14 miles. The road is<br />

not ballasted, but is as smooth as most of the<br />

older roads that are. The grade is almost<br />

nothing. The heaviest grade on the whole<br />

road through to Athens is a short piece of<br />

road this side of Big Belly, or Walnut Creek.<br />

It is only 26 feet to the mile, and is almost<br />

imperceptible.”<br />

The Ohio State Journal reporter noted the<br />

most difficult task in the laying of the rails<br />

was “the filling of a peat bog just beyond Big<br />

Belly,” as he noted the earthwork often sank<br />

until it finally reached a solid point.<br />

“A bridge for the stream at Canal<br />

Winchester is already framed, at the yards in<br />

www.columbusmessenger.com<br />

Editor’s Notebook<br />

this city, and will be<br />

ready for erection by<br />

the time the track is<br />

laid to the point where<br />

it is needed,” according<br />

to the 1868 article.<br />

“The work is going<br />

ahead rapidly, and by<br />

the first of September<br />

the cars will be running<br />

through to<br />

Lancaster. The president<br />

says no passenger<br />

car shall be run on the<br />

road until after it is ballasted.”<br />

Rick<br />

Palsgrove<br />

The reporter wrote that “an immense<br />

amount of freight is waiting shipment over<br />

the road.” It included “three-quarters of a<br />

million bushels of grain at Groveport, and<br />

other points up to Winchester. In addition to<br />

this, there are quantities of livestock. The<br />

shippers are very urgent for cars to be furnished<br />

immediately. The work on the road is<br />

being done swiftly and economically, under<br />

the consummate management of Mr. Greene,<br />

backed by the energetic contractors, Dodge,<br />

Case & Co. It will pierce the coal region the<br />

coming fall.”<br />

RAILROAD<br />

Continued from page 4<br />

The reporter stated the trip on the new<br />

railroad from Columbus to Groveport was<br />

comfortable and took 30 minutes.<br />

Some ceremonial aspects of the trip<br />

proved to be entertaining to bystanders and<br />

railroad workmen: “...each gentleman of the<br />

party had been required to drive a spike,<br />

with the most unapproachable awkwardness,<br />

to the intense amusement of the workmen...”<br />

The article provides perspective on the<br />

importance of this new railroad from<br />

Columbus to southeast Ohio, stating it<br />

opened up an area untouched by “modern<br />

enterprise almost, by lack of facilities for<br />

transportation. It is a region rich beyond<br />

comparison in agricultural and mineral<br />

wealth, and it is of incalculable importance to<br />

Columbus that her businessmen lay hold of<br />

the cords the two slender bars of iron which<br />

are to bind all this region in community of<br />

interest with Columbus. It requires only<br />

energy and enterprise, judiciously applied,<br />

and Columbus may take her place among the<br />

richest inland cities of the continent.”<br />

This railroad route still serves trains that<br />

pass through Groveport and Canal<br />

Winchester. These tracks are a functional<br />

link to the past.<br />

Though no more passenger trains stop in<br />

the area and the freight trains that chug<br />

through are fewer than during this railroad’s<br />

heyday, I think the folks who took that first<br />

train ride on this railroad line in 1868 would<br />

The Groveport train depot as it looked in<br />

the mid-20th century. The depot was torn<br />

down in the 1960s. Canal Winchester’s<br />

“Queen of the Line” depot still stands<br />

along the tracks near North High Street.<br />

(Photo courtesy of the Groveport<br />

Heritage Museum).<br />

be pleased to see the tracks and trains continue<br />

in the 21st century to do the job they<br />

were meant to do.<br />

detailed and comprehensive history of the<br />

Hocking Valley Railway, I highly recommend the<br />

book, “The Hocking Valley Railway,” by Edward<br />

H. Miller. The book is chock full of interesting<br />

information and photos and is a great read.)<br />

Hamilton Schools graduate carving out his future<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Bryce Seidle graduated from Hamilton<br />

Township High School this year, but that<br />

does not mean his education has stopped.<br />

The 18-year-old plans on a future as a<br />

firefighter and is using his skills in woodworking<br />

to get through the next phase in<br />

his career path–training to become a firefighter<br />

through coursework at Tolles<br />

Career and Technical Center in Plain City.<br />

“I have always had a passion to help<br />

people and I’ve been interested in the medical<br />

field,” said Seidle, who started his<br />

training in August, “and the fire service<br />

allows me to do both of those things. I am<br />

obtaining my fire card (a firefighter certificate<br />

awarded after passing a state test and<br />

technical school) through Tolles. It is an<br />

18-week course that certifies you in<br />

Firefighter 1 and 2.”<br />

Once he finishes his firefighter training,<br />

Seidle plans trying out for the Columbus<br />

Fire Department or joining the Hamilton<br />

Township or Jackson Township fire departments.<br />

During his junior year in high school,<br />

Seidle took an advanced health class,<br />

which sparked his interest in the medical<br />

field. In his senior year, he took a EMT<br />

class through Grant Medical Center. The<br />

high school sponsored and was able to get a<br />

grant for five students to go through the<br />

program.<br />

According to Seidle, the training<br />

involved Firefighter 1 and 2 coursework,<br />

which consisted of advanced fire suppression,<br />

vehicle extrication, forcible entry, fire<br />

and life safety initiatives.<br />

“The most difficult part was all the book<br />

work that is involved,” said Seidle.<br />

The Tolles training costs $2,800, but<br />

with gear rental, the aspiring firefighter<br />

said the cost bumps up to $3,500. To cover<br />

costs, Seidle is tapping into his talent in<br />

turning a piece of wood into something<br />

functional.<br />

“I was doing woodworking as a hobby<br />

and when I lost my job, I started to woodwork<br />

more,” said Seidle. “It allows me to<br />

make my own schedule, as school takes up<br />

a lot of time, and I am able to make my<br />

schedule around my school and studying. I<br />

always liked to make stuff and this has let<br />

me become more skilled in the craft. I took<br />

a shop class in high school that gave me the<br />

basics and I expanded on that to more challenging<br />

work.”<br />

Seidle’s repertoire includes creating flag<br />

patterns in the shape of any state, tables,<br />

and cabinets. For information about his<br />

woodworking, contact Seidle on Facebook<br />

LIBRARIES<br />

Continued from page 1<br />

The free-standing structures are located<br />

at: Lockbourne United Methodist Church,<br />

1270 Vause St.; Hamilton Meadows on<br />

Middle School Street; at the corner of<br />

Service Drive and Edgeview Road; in<br />

<strong>South</strong>pointe Village by the rental office at<br />

3940 <strong>South</strong>pointe Boulevard.; the K&M<br />

Market, 4305 Lancaster Avenue in Obetz;<br />

Reese Chapel, 4747 Ridge St.; and<br />

Hamilton Lakes North, 4267 Sestos Drive.<br />

Future Little Libraries are planned for<br />

Dexter Village, <strong>South</strong>ern Pines, and two in<br />

the village of Obetz.<br />

“The idea is to ‘take a book, leave a<br />

book,’ but we never want to discourage a<br />

child who does not have a book to leave<br />

without taking one,” said Schutte. “If a<br />

child falls in love with a book from the little<br />

library, they may keep it. This is all about<br />

encouraging the love of books and reading.”<br />

According to Schutte, organizers want<br />

the structures to be easily accessible.<br />

However, younger children may need some<br />

assistance opening the doors and reaching<br />

books. The initial intent was to offer books<br />

for children in preschool through sixth<br />

grade, but people have also left novels<br />

geared for older audiences as well.<br />

As long as adult items do not take up too<br />

much room, Schutte leaves them on the<br />

library shelves for older borrowers.<br />

“If the library is full, I suggest checking<br />

back at another time or feel free to take a<br />

few items out to read,” she said.<br />

Schutte and volunteers–such as second<br />

grade teacher Bethany Moore, the<br />

Callahan family and Girl Scout troop 6091,<br />

and the Corney family and Boy Scout troop<br />

526–monitor the libraries at least once a<br />

week to check on book stock and condition<br />

of the structures, including a supply of<br />

hand sanitizer to keep both contents and<br />

borrowers safe.<br />

“We have had no problems with people<br />

leaving anything inappropriate,” said<br />

Schutte.<br />

A temporary Blessing Box by the<br />

Service/Edgeview Road site started when<br />

COVID-19 first hit and contained canned<br />

and boxed goods, but it became a nuisance,<br />

so it was removed.<br />

“It was a nice thought at the time.<br />

There is actually a Blessing Box beside the<br />

one at the Lockbourne United Methodist<br />

Church and it has not become a problem,”<br />

said Schutte.<br />

She acknowledges that, while people<br />

believe everyone has access to libraries and<br />

technology, the pandemic brought to light<br />

this is not necessarily the case.<br />

“We do not have a public library in our<br />

school district, some children do not have<br />

devices to read online, and some children<br />

do not have transportation to go to a public<br />

library, so I believe these Little Libraries<br />

can give children the opportunity to continue<br />

to read and grow,” said Schutte. “It can<br />

be something they look forward to visiting.”<br />

Take good care of your Christmas tree<br />

Madison Township’s<br />

Santa Parade<br />

Working within COVID-19 restrictions,<br />

Madison Township officials still plan to<br />

hold a modified Santa Parade on Dec. 13<br />

from 1-3 p.m. on the grounds of the<br />

Groveport Madison Middle School North<br />

complex.<br />

“We’re still working on the details,” said<br />

Madison Township Administrator Susan<br />

Brobst. “Residents will arrive at Middle<br />

School North and drive around the parking<br />

lot. We’ll have vendors handing out items<br />

to the youth and then they’ll drive out.”<br />

The township hopes to share more information<br />

closer to the actual event. Vendors<br />

interested in participating in the parade<br />

should contact Brobst at sbrobst@madisontownship.org<br />

or Chief Robinson at drobinson@madisontownship.org.<br />

Christmas trees are an iconic symbol of the holiday season.<br />

Whether they are personal trees nestled in the corner of a living<br />

room for families to enjoy or towering evergreens serving as the<br />

focal point of a town square, Christmas trees are a wonder to<br />

behold.<br />

Many people have fond memories of time spent around the<br />

Christmas tree sharing gifts and family traditions.<br />

Live trees and their pine-like aroma can be especially nostalgic<br />

trees to include in holiday plans.<br />

The National Christmas Tree Association says that approximately<br />

25 to 30 million real Christmas trees are sold in the United<br />

States every year. North American trees hail from all 50 states<br />

and areas of Canada.<br />

While freshly cut trees can be particularly beautiful and aromatic<br />

additions to the season, they require a bit more work than<br />

artificial trees in order to remain beautiful and thrive throughout<br />

the holiday season.<br />

Maintenance can help keep Christmas trees as perfect as possible.<br />

• Even though it is tempting to buy a real tree as early as possible,<br />

their shelf life is limited even with the best care. Dural<br />

Christmas Tree Farm advises that, under the best conditions, a<br />

real tree should last up to four weeks before drying out.<br />

• Consider the needles when looking for a real tree. Pull your<br />

hand toward your body along the branches. If many needles fall<br />

off, the tree is past its peak.<br />

• Think about the room in which the tree will be located. Leave<br />

at least six inches between the tip of the tree and the ceiling,<br />

accounting for the height of the tree stand as well.<br />

• If needle retention is a goal, the Scotch pine variety has the<br />

best needle retention and a high survival rate, lending to its popularity,<br />

offers Precision Tree and Landscape. Douglas fir and balsam<br />

fir are other durable trees.<br />

• If possible, buy a freshly cut tree from a reputable nursery or<br />

tree farm, advises The Old Farmer’s Almanac.<br />

Many pre-cut trees sold elsewhere were likely cut weeks before<br />

and may not be fresh.<br />

• Cut the bottom of the tree trunk before bringing it home to<br />

facilitate the uptake of fresh water daily. Trees can absorb as<br />

much as a gallon of water in a day, so make sure the tree gets fresh<br />

water every day.<br />

• Keep trees away from as many heat sources as possible and<br />

away from direct sunlight to prolong longevity.<br />

• According to Karabin Farms in Connecticut, to make a<br />

Christmas tree last longer, boil a gallon of water and then dissolve<br />

one cup of sugar in the water.<br />

Allow to cool. After freshly cutting the trunk, pour in the warm<br />

sugar water.<br />

Continue to add fresh, cool, plain water to the tree stand afterward.


PAGE 8 - MESSENGER - <strong>November</strong> 22, <strong>2020</strong><br />

A film that features a body switch is all<br />

about the transformation process.<br />

After the initial magic is activated to<br />

transport one’s soul and personality into<br />

another individual, the rest is all about<br />

those people realizing stuff and things<br />

about themselves and trying to change for<br />

the betterment — for the most part. The latest<br />

film to explore this premise does not<br />

veer far from that well-trodden path, but it<br />

does shake up the routine by including an<br />

extremely high body count.<br />

Shown only in theaters at this time,<br />

“Freaky” is equal parts body switch horror,<br />

a love letter to the 1980s slasher, and a<br />

message about finding hidden strength<br />

through life’s challenges. While taken at<br />

face value, these themes appear to be at<br />

odds with each other, but they all come<br />

together to create one of the most bizarrely<br />

entertaining films of the year.<br />

The main protagonist of the movie is<br />

Millie Kessler (Kathryn Newton), a shy<br />

and sensitive teenager who is still coming<br />

to terms with the death of her father the<br />

year prior. With her conservative dress and<br />

meek manner, it makes her a target for the<br />

popular crowd at school, but she is not<br />

without a small and loyal group of friends<br />

entertainment<br />

www.columbusmessenger.com<br />

“Freaky” is oddly heartwarming in a weird kind of way<br />

and fellow outcasts.<br />

Upon suffering a public embarrassment<br />

at the hands, or drinking cups, of a few<br />

football players at a homecoming game,<br />

Millie’s day only gets worse as her mother<br />

forgets to pick her up after the festivities.<br />

Wearing half of her beaver mascot (she<br />

tells her friends extracurriculars look good<br />

on transcripts), she spots a masked man<br />

standing underneath the dim lights of the<br />

parking lot. Suitably freaked out by this<br />

strange encounter, it dawns on her that<br />

this is not a mere masked man trying to<br />

scare her, it is the urban legend serial<br />

killer known as the Blissfield Butcher<br />

(played by Vince Vaughn).<br />

After a slightly tense but hilarious<br />

chase throughout the bleachers and football<br />

field (she is still wearing half of that<br />

beaver costume), she is caught by the<br />

Butcher who appears to be wielding some<br />

ancient dagger. As he goes in for the kill,<br />

he is distracted by the appearance of her<br />

police officer sister but manages to get a<br />

good puncture to the shoulder.<br />

Inexplicably, as her shoulder starts to<br />

bleed, so does his and thus begins the magical<br />

transformation process.<br />

When Millie wakes up the following<br />

The Reel Deal<br />

morning, she is in the<br />

lumbering body of the<br />

man whose body count<br />

is triple that of her age.<br />

Realizing that if she is<br />

in his body, then he is<br />

in hers, she sets off to<br />

confront herself<br />

before more harm can<br />

be done.<br />

Unfortunately for<br />

her, however, the<br />

Butcher is starting to<br />

Dedra<br />

Cordle<br />

realize he likes inhabiting this body. He<br />

enjoys that Millie appears too weak to<br />

speak up for herself and uses that to his<br />

advantage. This new look Millie, now<br />

sporting a fierce red leather jacket and<br />

tight ponytail, is free of the constraints of<br />

her former and meeker self.<br />

Knowing something is not quite right<br />

with their friend Millie, Nyla and Josh<br />

(Celeste O’Connor and Misha Osherovich,<br />

respectively) try to hash out what has happened<br />

to their sweet pal and, while doing<br />

so, come face to face with the Butcher. At<br />

first, they are disbelieving that a magical<br />

body switch happened but when all signs<br />

point to the mythical, they are determined<br />

to do whatever is illegal and necessary to<br />

help their friend before the switch becomes<br />

permanent.<br />

Charm and good acting do not often go<br />

hand-in-hand with traditional horror films,<br />

but “Freaky” has both thanks to its cast<br />

members and its message about a person<br />

being so much more than their exterior.<br />

The latter doesn’t beat the audience over<br />

the head with the message — the film much<br />

prefers to beat the heads of others in with<br />

various tools — but at its core it is a story<br />

about a girl who lacks confidence finding<br />

her voice when it is taken away from her. It<br />

is oddly heartwarming, in a nice bloodbath<br />

kind of way.<br />

“Freaky” is only playing in theaters at<br />

this time, but it is slated to come to video<br />

on demand in December. If you’re a fan of<br />

slashers and slasher comedies, I highly recommend<br />

watching this bizarrely sweet and<br />

gory film when you get the chance.<br />
