plan for city parks
By Andrea Cordle
Grove City Editor
The city of Grove City has several park
projects in the works. At the Nov. 16 meeting,
Grove City Council discussed the creation
of a comprehensive park plan.
According to councilman Randy Holt,
this comprehensive plan would incorporate
Beulah Park, the old library site, Breck
Park, Pinnacle Park, and the entrance to

On Nov. 13, a virtual artist’s reception for Lucila Linik took
place at Grove City Hall to celebrate her latest collection,
“Tree Time with Ducks.” The collection, which features a variety
of mediums such as watercolor, mixed media and oil
paintings, was inspired by Linik’s fascination with nature. The
native of Argentina and current resident of Orient said she
began creating her 32-piece exhibit in March as a way to cope
with the shutdown caused by a novel coronavirus. She dedicated
several of her pieces to those who lost their lives to the
virus. Here, Linik looks at her creation, ‘El Botanico Garden,’
during the event. The Art Concern, which was founded in
1991, is sponsored by Grove City Council. The curator is currently
working on editing a video of the exhibit, which can be
viewed online on their Facebook page or at their website

Blood drive at Grove City Library
The Grove City Library and the Red Cross will host a blood
drive from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Nov. 27 at 3959 Broadway, in
Meeting Room A. Schedule an appointment at www.redcrossblood.org.
“We need to look at this holistically,” said Holt.
During the meeting, council had its first reading of
an ordinance to set aside $250,000 from the general
fund to remove a portion of Arbutus Avenue for the
Town Center Park, which would be located at the old
library site. The second reading and public hearing is
scheduled in December. Holt said the Town Center
Park should be minimal with some green space. He
believes the city should put more focus and resources
into the 30-acre Beulah Park, which would include an
“We don’t need two big parks in that area,” said
The current concept for Beulah Park is estimated to
cost around $11 million. The projected cost for the
entrance to Beulah Plaza is $2 million.
Holt said financing options could include an inside
millage increase, an increase in city income tax, or a
“Once the TIF from Beulah comes in, the city can
start paying back those funds,” said Holt.
The Beulah TIF runs for 15 years.
“It is important to act immediately on Beulah
Park,” said Holt. “It’s a benefit to the community.”
Pat Kelley, the Beulah developer, urged council to
move forward with the park at a previous meeting.
Council president Christine Houk said city leaders
need to take into consideration that amount of debt
already tied to the redevelopment of Beulah. She said
the property owner purchased the land for $4.9 million.
According to Houk, the city has already invested
$3 million in racetrack redevelopment funds, $6 million
in bonds for the Columbus Street extension, $5
million for infrastructure on the site and more for land
to relocate Brookpark Middle School.
In addition, Houk said council does not need to
address a comprehensive park plan.
“We have a parks and recreation department with a
plan for our parks,” said the council president.
The park brainstorming session also included a concept
for Pinnacle Park. One of the ideas mentioned was
to build an indoor athletic facility that could include an
aquatics center, indoor tennis and pickleball courts,
basketball courts, and senior space. This concept could
cost upward of $20 million plus annual staffing and
Holt said this could be funded without residential
“There is $4 million generated a year through the
Pinnacle TIF,” said Holt. “Let’s start using that
The comprehensive park plan also includes a proposal
to add a gazebo, paths, and a pavilion at Breck
Councilman Ted Berry wanted to clarify that the
comprehensive plan was a brainstorming session.
“This is nothing concrete,” said Berry. “But we want
to move the ball forward.”
In other news, Tony Collins, the CEO of YMCA of
Central Ohio attended the meeting to thank the city
for using CARES Act funds to help the Grove City
YMCA. The city used $76,000 of its federal coronavirus
aid funds to benefit the Grove City and Vaughn E.

1,100 members visit daily. Now, the facility averages
around 300, which Collins says is still the most in the
The CEO said the YMCA hopes to expand hours of
operation in Grove City.
Council also approved a resolution to distribute $1.2
million in CARES Act funding to the Mid-Ohio Food
Collective, Jackson Township and Franklin County
Public Health. The organizations must utilize the
funds by the end of the year.
Township takes in e-waste
By Dedra Cordle
If you take an inventory of the items in
your home, chances are high that you will
have a number of electronic devices that
have reached the end of its life cycle. And
no matter how long they have been sitting
there, or tucked away in some dark drawer
collecting dust, chances are also high that
is where it will remain because you just
don’t know what to do with it.
Realizing that this situation has become
an issue in many households, a local
municipality recently decided that it was
time to partner with an e-waste recycling
company to bring relief to its residents who
are looking to unload those unusable items
hanging around the home.
“We wanted to do something that would
make life a little bit easier for our residents,”
said Shane Farnsworth, the administrator
of Jackson Township.
At the end of October, the township
began accepting a limited scope of e-waste
items at its administrative building, located
at 3765 Hoover Road. Residents of the
township, along with those who reside in
the city of Grove City and the village of
Urbancrest, will be able to drop off laptops,
tablets, cellphones, and printers during the
regular business hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.
on Mondays through Fridays year-round.
Farnsworth said that this location will
not be able to accept stand-alone computer
monitors or television screens at this time.
The idea to host a drop-off site at the
township administrative office began to
formulate during the summer clean up
series. To slow the spread of a novel coronavirus,
the township modified its traditional
one-day clean up event to a prolonged
summer format to help residents get rid of
unwanted items while also staying safe.
“During these drop-offs, we had many
residents inquire about their old electronic
devices and how they could safely dispose
of them,” said Farnsworth. “This new program
is a result of those inquiries and our
desire to help make it happen within a
short distance of their homes.”
According to Farnsworth, there will be a
special bin located at the administrative
office where residents can drop off their
unwanted electronic items. At the end of
each business day, those items will be
taken to a secured location on the property
and then handed over to their partner, I
Recycle, for safe disposal.
Farnsworth recommended that residents
wipe their devices of sensitive information
if at all possible.
He also added that residents should
contact the administrative office at 614-
875-2742 for any additional questions
regarding the e-waste program.
According to the Solid Waste Authority
of Central Ohio, e-waste is the fastest
growing waste sector in the country and
there are a number of local companies that
accept end of life cycle electronics and
appliances. For those not within the township’s
boundaries, visit their website recycleright.org
to find the nearest location to
safely dispose of these items.

SWCS OKs contract for resource officers
By Dedra Cordle
Law enforcement officials will continue to be a presence
at the local high schools when in a non-virtual
At the Nov. 16 meeting, the South-Western City
Schools board of education unanimously approved a
new agreement with the Franklin County Sheriff’s
Office to provide resource officers at Franklin Heights
and Westland High Schools.
Under the terms of the agreement, the district will
only be required to pay for services when a blended
learning model or a full face-to-face model has been
initiated. According to the contract, the monthly
invoice will be prorated based on the number of days in
such models, and the board will only be required to pay
for the services when the deputy is on-site. The daily
per-diem is $1,327.62 based on 177 student days and
five paid holidays in the school year. The board will
pay approximately $244,000 for the total cost of having
one deputy serve at each high school.
Tim Donahue, the principal at Franklin Heights,
said the school resource officers are an invaluable fixture
at the district schools as they provide a sense of
security for its students and the community at large.
He went on to add that they often go above and beyond
their duties at the school.
“Deputy (Dan) Fahy has become a part of our school
community,” he said in a written statement. “Our students
and families see him as a very positive resource
in their school. He is present at a lot of our community
events and volunteers his time with our Special
Olympics and athletics programs.
“Franklin Heights benefits in so many ways from
his presence and support.”
In addition to providing protection of the building
Southwest Public Libraries have joined eight other
central Ohio library systems in a partnership to promote
a community reading of “Stamped: Racism,
Antiracism, and You” by Ibram X. Kendi and Jason
Reynolds as part of a Let’s Talk About Race: One Book
— One Community initiative.
Let’s Talk About Race: One Book — One Community
kicked off on Nov. 9 and continues through Jan. 24,
2021 when the libraries will host author Jason
Reynolds in a virtual author talk at 4 pm. Geared
toward teens and adults, the initiative is designed to
cultivate dialogue about race and social justice
through shared reading experience and discussion.
During this 11-week program, each library will
work with local schools and other community partners
to promote reading and discussion of “Stamped:
Racism, Antiracism, and You.” Registration for the
free virtual event with Jason Reynolds will begin in
“This timely initiative invites everyone to participate
and deepen their appreciation of reading while
reflecting on social issues and connecting with friends,
family, and neighbors through shared experiences and
community conversations,” said Michele Lowe, assistant
director of Westland Area Library. “At a time
when the country seems so divided, we hope readers
will find opportunities here to come together, listen,
learn, and find common purpose to help strengthen
premises, the resource officers are also required to
investigate and document unruly, delinquent and
criminal acts within the school and neighborhood; participate
in classroom and school assemblies; and serve
as a liaison with neighborhood businesses and residents
in school related problems.
The district’s agreement with the Franklin County’s
Sheriff’s Office is reviewed annually. The agreement
that was voted on at the meeting was for the remainder
of the 2020/21 school year. The district also has an
agreement with the Grove City Division of Police to
provide security services at Central Crossing and
Grove City High Schools.
The board of education also renewed an agreement
with the college readiness program, I Know I Can.
Under the terms of the agreement, the district will pay
$85,000 for the organization’s services for the 2020/21
The program, which began as a pilot program at
Franklin Heights and Westland in 2018, places a college
advising manager at each of the four high schools
to help juniors and seniors prepare for post-high school
In addition to helping the students figure out their
goals and potential career paths, the college advising
managers also assist them with the admissions
process, application essays, campus tours and financial
Brad Faust, the district’s assistant superintendent
of curriculum, said the district is fortunate to be a
partner in this program.
“Our partnership with I Know I Can has been beneficial
in helping students dream big,” he said. “For
many, college may have seemed out of reach. With the
personalized attention of IKIC, our students gain the
confidence to know that their goals of higher education
and technical training are attainable.”
One Book - One Community initiative
SPL and partner libraries have purchased hundreds
of additional copies of “Stamped: Racism,
Antiracism, and You” as well as prepared various programs
and resources to support this community read.

Residents support livestock ban
By Dedra Cordle
A recent survey conducted by members
of the village of Urbancrest’s health and
safety committee has found that a majority
of residents do not want to live among farm
animals of any kind.
At the Nov. 10 council meeting, committee
chairwoman Alicia Wiggins reported
that 60 percent of residents interviewed in
the door-to-door survey stated that they
were in favor of proposed legislation that
would prohibit livestock from being raised
in their community.
The comments in favor of the ban
ranged from concern about animal waste,
the projected future growth of the human
population, and the negative perception
that sometimes follows urban areas that
allow farm animals to be raised within
their borders, said Wiggins.
“Some were afraid that it would make
the village look too “country,”’ she told the
The survey was conducted throughout
the week of Nov. 2 and more than 100
households were interviewed, said fellow
committee member Deborah Larkins-
Jackson. The members of the committee
did not interview those living in the
Bending Brook apartment complex.
Among the comments made by the 37
percent in favor of allowance, several stated
they found the presence of small farm
animals such as chickens, ducks and goats
to be acceptable as long as their presence

would not have a negative effect on the surrounding
Wiggins said it was important that this
survey be conducted as the council has
been mulling the issue of raising farm animals
in the village for months now.
“We needed to hear their voices on this
issue,” she said.
In July, village council held its first
reading on legislation that would prohibit
the possession of farm animals and livestock
within the village. Under the ordinance,
the definition of farm animals
include, but are not limited to, pigs, mules,
donkeys, miniature horses, ostrich, fox,
chickens, pheasant, and chinchillas, to
name a few. In regard to livestock, the definition
is determined as horses, sheep,
goats, poultry, or any other animals that is
raised or maintained domestically for food
During that meeting, resident Donna
Bogue said that while she was in favor of
some of the language, she thought the prohibition
of animals such as chickens and
chinchillas was “pushing it a bit too far.”
At the following meeting, the legislation
was tabled upon the recommendation of
village law director Rodd Lawrence as it
needed modification in regard to formatting,
legal clarification, and federal
statutes related to the Americans with
The legislation has not been brought
back to the table since. Wiggins said it is
currently “being tweaked” and will be
brought back at a future date.

Metro Park prairies rise from the ashes
By Rick Palsgrove
Winter’s cold is coming, but some Metro
Parks are in for a hot time.
Prairie areas in a few of the area Metro
Parks will undergo what is described as a “prescribed
burn,” where controlled fires are set to
“inhibit invasive species and boost new growth
of native plants in prairies, grasslands, and oak
woods,” according to Metro Parks Assistant
Resource Manager Carrie Morrow.
Metro Parks Public Information Manager
Peg Hanley said two such burns recently took
place at Pickerington Ponds and Battelle Darby
Creek. She said Prairie Oaks had a prescribed
burn earlier this year.
“We burn in the spring and fall in the dormant
seasons - spring before plants and grasses
have grown and fall after the frost has killed
the plants above ground,” said Hanley.
“Prairies recover quickly. After an early spring
burn, it will green up almost immediately.
Nature is resilient.”
Hanley said the burns are conducted by
members of the burn team, which is made up of
park technicians and staff from the resource
According to information provided by Metro
Parks, the prescribed burns:
•Maintain the health of existing natural
areas, restore nutrients, habitat restoration,
control invasive plants and shrubs, and encourage
new growth of native vegetation.
•Are better than mowing because they are a
natural management tool used throughout history
and are a force much like wind or water
that imitates nature. Native Americans and
pioneers in the past set controlled prairie fires
to help the land. Also, prairie habitats developed
over centuries where natural fires played
a role in maintaining areas for a diversity of
In an online blog written for Metro Parks,
Morrow stated the prescribed burns are performed
on a rotating basis in selected parks
every two to five years. The burned areas promote
new growth and germinating seeds, as
well as eliminate young trees, shrubs, and other
invasive plant species. The fires allow prairie
wildflowers and grasses to rejuvenate and
When asked how the prescribed prairie
burns affect the wildlife in the burn areas,
Hanley said, “To protect wildlife, our staff conducts
a walk through of the site before burning
which causes some animals to exit the area. We
begin slow and light the main head fire last.
Birds simply fly off. Deer and other mammals
can scurry and bound away quickly and mice
and voles can burrow in the ground.”

Book features stories from Grove City
Author J. Larry Simpson has published
“No Excuses, The True Life
Adventures of a Little Trailer Boy” that
features several stories about his life in
Grove City. The book is about Simpson’s
life as an adventurous boy from 1951
through 1961, traveling across America,
living in a mobile home.
“Grove City was my back to the future
town,” said Simpson. “Wonderful kids,
the football team, and elected to being
the president of the sophomore class, all
in my five and a half months, in the fall
of 1959. I want Grove City to know someone
loved them, and now 60 years later, I
journey back in soul to them.”
“No Excuses, The True Life
Adventures of a Little Trailer Boy” can
be found online through Amazon or
Barnes and Noble.

A film that features a body switch is all
about the transformation process. After the
initial magic is activated to transport one’s
soul and personality into another individual,
the rest is all about those people realizing
stuff and things about themselves
and trying to change for the betterment —
for the most part. The latest film to explore
this premise does not veer far from that
well-trodden path, but it does shake up the
routine by including an extremely high

message about finding hidden strength
through life’s challenges. While taken at
face value, these themes appear to be at
odds with each other, but they all come
together to create one of the most bizarrely
entertaining films of the year.
The main protagonist of the movie is
Millie Kessler (Kathryn Newton), a very
shy and sensitive teenager who is still coming
to terms with the death of her father
the year prior. With her conservative dress
and meek manner, it makes her a target for
the popular crowd at school, but she is not
without a small and loyal group of friends
and fellow outcasts.
Upon suffering a public embarrassment
at the hands, or drinking cups, of a few
football players at a homecoming game,
Millie’s day only gets worse as her mother
forgets to pick her up after the festivities.
Wearing half of her beaver mascot (she
tells her friends extracurriculars look good
on transcripts), she spots a masked man
standing underneath the dim lights of the
parking lot. Suitably freaked out by this
strange encounter, it dawns on her that
this is not a mere masked man trying to
scare her; it is the urban legend serial
killer known as the Blissfield Butcher
(played by Vince Vaughn).
After a slightly tense but hilarious chase
throughout the bleachers and football field
(she is still wearing half of that beaver costume),
she is caught by the Butcher who
appears to be wielding some ancient dagger.
As he goes in for the kill, he is distracted
by the appearance of her police officer
sister but manages to get a good puncture
to the shoulder. Inexplicably, as her shoulder
starts to bleed, so does his and thus
begins the magical transformation process.
When Millie wakes up the following
morning, she is in the lumbering body of
the man whose body count is triple that of
her age. Realizing that if she is in his body,
then he is in hers, she sets off to confront
herself before more harm can be done.
Unfortunately for her, however, the
Butcher is starting to realize he likes
inhabiting this body. He enjoys that Millie
appears too weak to speak up for herself
and uses that to his advantage. This new
look Millie, now sporting a fierce red
leather jacket and tight ponytail, is free of
the constraints of her former and meeker
Knowing something is not quite right
with their friend Millie, Nyla and Josh
(Celeste O’Connor and Misha Osherovich,
respectively) try to hash out what has happened
to their sweet pal and, while doing
so, come face to face with the Butcher. At
first, they are disbelieving that a magical
body switch happened but when all signs
point to the mythical, they are determined
to do whatever is illegal and necessary to

Charm and good
acting do not often
with traditional horror
“Freaky” has both thanks to its cast members
and its message about a person being
so much more than their exterior. The latter
doesn’t beat the audience over the head
with the message — the film much prefers
to beat the heads of others in with various
tools — but at its core it is a story about a
girl who lacks confidence finding her voice
when it is taken away from her. It is oddly
heartwarming, in a nice bloodbath kind of
As noted above, “Freaky” is only playing
in theaters at this time but it is slated to
come to video on demand in December. If
you’re a fan of slashers and slasher comedies,
I would highly recommend watching
this bizarrely sweet and gory film when
you get the chance. Grade: B+

Cataracts can be removed with an outpatient surgery where the cloudy
lens is removed and a clear lens is put in its place. This allows light to easily
