Lending a

helping hand

By Amanda Ensinger

Staff Writer

The Sahara-Columbus Club partnered

with the Starfish Assignment and

the Columbus Police to deliver food to

those in need on the Westside.

The Sahara-Columbus Club handed

out more than 150 bags of food to those

in need to ensure they have a nice holiday

meal. Among the items in the bag

where canned ham, stuffing, pancake

mix, gravy, soup, and other nonperishable

items.

“We started creating these bags in

March when kids started learning

remotely,” said Teja Kancharlapalli who

founded Sahara-Columbus. “We wanted

to ensure that kids had proper meals

when they were at home. After doing

this, we decided we wanted to do more to

help and partnered with the Starfish

Assignment to see where we also could

donate these bags.”

The items in the bag can be easily

made; many can even be made in a

microwave if someone does not have

access to an oven or stove top. The group

wanted to make it as easy as possible to

prepare the meals for families in need.

The Starfish Assignment informed

the group about the need for resources

like this on the Westside, so the group

decided to focus on this region when

donating these holiday bags.

“There are so many people in need on

the Westside,” said Columbus Deputy

Chief of Police Timothy Becker. “People

could use a little help, especially with

the type of year we have had. Those in

need that receive these bags are so

grateful and appreciate the help.”

The items in the bag came from

money raised by the club, as well as

donations from the central Ohio community.

“Each of the bags also was decorated

and had a message inside it,”

Kancharlapalli said. “We wanted recipi-

The South-Western City Schools

District will not have in-person instruction

for the remainder of the year.

On Nov. 19, Superintendent Dr. Bill

Wise announced that the district would

transition back to a 100 percent remote

learning model and stay in that model

through winter break. He cited recommendations

from state and county public

health officials for making that determination.

“When we were reviewing the most

recent (COVID-19) data, we looked at the

community conditions and could see that

they were worsening,” Wise said. “In just a

matter of weeks, we have seen a dramatic

Southwest Public Libraries (SPL) returned to nocontact

service only on Nov. 23 in light of surging

COVID-19 cases and the newest health advisories

from both county and state. These advisories identify

severe virus exposure and spread and urge residents to

stay home except for work, school, or essential services.

There will again be no public entry into SPL buildings

except entryways for no-contact pickup and limited

document services (print, copy, scan, fax). Patrons

will still be able to borrow items but through placing

hold requests for no-contact holds pickup only, a

process now easier than ever.

Unlike in the past, patrons no longer need to schedule

an appointment time to pick up held items once

notified they are in. They should simply call 15 to 20

minutes before planned arrival to allow staff time to

get items checked out, bagged, and placed on no-contact

pickup tables in the entryway.

The library will continue to accept returns only during

service hours. Hours remain:

ents of the bags to know we are thinking of them.”

The bags were delivered to a precinct on the

Westside and officers personally delivered the bags to

those in need. Becker said this is just one tactic the

police ae doing to build relationships in the community.

“Usually when people see us, it’s the worst day of

their life,” he said. “We want to see the residents we

serve on good days too. By delivering these bags to

those in need, we can strengthen those relationships

and start a dialogue with them.”

The Westside of Columbus has continued to see

increasing gun violence and overdoses. Becker hopes

by engaging with the community, they can work with

residents to prevent these issues. They also hope when

something does happen, residents will remember these

increase in case counts and positivity rates and we

believed that it would soon become increasingly more

difficult to operate our schools safely.”

When Ohio Governor Mike DeWine and the state

and county public health officials announced the most

recent stay-at-home recommendations through Dec.

20, it did not mandate that schools cease in-person

instruction as it did in March when the novel coronavirus

was first introduced in the state. Instead, the

officials advised the transition take place as they have

projected another surge after the Thanksgiving holiday.

Wise said following their advice was just another

factor that played into the district’s decision to transition

back to the remote learning model.

“We have followed all state, county and federal recommendations

to slow the spread and we have seen little

community spread in our schools while in the

blended learning model,” he said. “However, all of our

students and all of our staff are members of the greater

community and now we have begun to see more

absences in our student body and our personnel. It is

becoming increasingly harder to staff our schools due

to these conditions.”

According to the most recent data posted on the district’s

COVID-19 Dashboard, there are 38 students

and 20 staff members who tested positive for the virus.

There are 306 students and 58 staff members who

were considered “close contact exposures” and are in

“We continue to take the health and safety of our

patrons and staff very seriously,” said SPL Director

Mark Shaw. “When we reopened for limited access last

month, we foresaw the possibility of needing to return

to no-contact service for the safety of the community

and have worked to make it as smooth yet safe as possible.”

The library will continue to offer plenty of Grab and

Go options available during no-contact service hours,

including book bundles available for borrowing plus

various take-home craft and activity kits. Virtual programming

such as storytimes, STEM Challenges, craft

tutorials, and more, will continue to be presented via

the library’s Facebook and YouTube pages.

interactions and be more willing to talk to the police.

“People are getting away with murder because

neighbors don’t want to talk to us,” Becker said.

“People see things going on, but they don’t want to talk

to the police. We need to build trust with this community,

then when something happens, they are more

willing to help us.”

The Sahara-Columbus Club plans to continue to

find ways to help those in need during the pandemic

and beyond.

“I wanted my kids to know that there is a big world

out there and there are people in need,” Kancharlapalli

said. “Everyone faces different challenges and don’t

have the same opportunities. You can’t make a difference

if you aren’t willing to help.”

isolation or quarantine. Those numbers also include

the students and educators who are participating in

the Virtual Learning Academy.

Wise said student and staff absenteeism was

expected during this pandemic and the district did

take measures to mitigate extended absences from

educators. He added that the issue the district is currently

facing is finding substitute teachers to fill in for

those absences.

“That is another reason why we have decided to

transition back to the remote learning model,” he said.

“It is getting harder to find substitutes who are as willing

to fill in as we had in the past.”

With the transition back to remote learning for the

remainder of the year, Wise said he is hopeful that the

beginning of 2021 will see more favorable conditions

and a return to the blended learning model. However,

he did not commit to having the students and staff

back in the classroom come the week of Jan. 4.

“We have to take a wait and see approach and follow

the recommendations of the public health officials,”

he said.

He added that the district will provide an update on

Dec. 17 regarding future scheduling plans.

In related news, all extra-curricular and co-curricular

performances, contests, and scrimmages are canceled

until Dec.17. District officials said they will

reevaluate this decision at that time.

Government Focus

Residents concerned about concert noise

By Amanda Ensinger

Staff Writer

A drive-in concert series is causing

issues for some Franklin Township residents.

The Westland Drive-In concert

series, taking place in the parking lot of the

vacant Westland Mall, has been a nuisance

to many in the community.

At a recent board meeting, residents

voiced their concerns, saying the music is

too loud and is a detriment to the area.

“We don’t want this here,” said Joy

Clasom. “You can hear it from miles away.

It is not helping the area but hurting it.”

Some of the trustees agreed with this

sentiment, saying they live three to four

miles away and can hear the music from

their home.

“You are supposed to sit in your car and

turn your radio to a station and hear the

music,” said Franklin Township Trustee

John Fleshman. “However, you can obviously

hear the music from far away, which

is causing a disturbance for many.”

Residents said those that live even closer

to the concert site are having even bigger

issues with the noise. However, the

board said there is little they can do.

“Franklin Township doesn’t own this

land or the mall,” Fleshman said. “They

didn’t come to Franklin Township for zoning,

they went to the county.”

The owners of the property are applying

to become a “community entertainment

district” so they can continue to host more

outdoor events. The permit they were given

only lasted until Nov. 8. Calls to the property

owners for comment were not

returned.

In other news, the board provided an

update on scholarships to local students via

funds from the camera ticketing program.

The township announced it will no longer

offer the scholarships and did not award

scholarships to 2020 graduates.

“Right now, the cameras are not in place

because of a court ruling that said we can’t

do civil hearings anymore for these tickets,”

said Mark Potts, township administrator.

“If someone is ticketed, we have to

have a municipal hearing and we can’t do

that right now because of COVID.”

Potts said that as a result, they are not

using the traffic cameras and are not issuing

speeding tickets in this way. He also

said with school closed last year due to

COVID not enough money was raised via

camera speeding tickets to give scholarships

to students in 2020.

The board also gave an update on community

outreach projects. This includes

implementing a successful tire drive.

Currently, Franklin Township has one of

the highest rates of illegal dumping in the

county. Illegal dumping of tires is one of

the biggest issues.

Recently, the township hosted an event

where people could turn in their old tires

and they received 393 tires. These tires are

typically dumped in woods, water streams

or other areas, so properly disposing of

them is important to the township.

Residents were able to drop off up to 10

tires a person at the drive.

Community Center Director Michael

Pollack, the center will not be having its

traditional activities, but will offer some

holiday cheer.

“We will be having Santa’s mailbox and

the letters to the Santa program we have

previously had,” Pollack said. “Kids can put

letters in the mailbox to Santa and they

will receive a letter back.”

Pollack said the letters should be in an

envelop with the child’s full name, complete

address, and postage. The mailbox

will be set up in the community center

parking lot, located at 5955 West Broad St.

The center also will be offering phone

calls with Santa. For $2 children can

receive a call from Santa on Tuesday or

Thursday evening through Dec. 22. Santa

also will occasionally do calls on Saturday.

When registering, parents should include

one or two gift ideas so Santa can personalize

the call. Calls will last approximately

five minutes and Santa will not guarantee

gifts for kids but instead tell the children

what he heard they wanted.

“We also are looking at having a holiday

themed inflatable outside that people can

In other township news, Pollack gave an

update on activity at the community center

as it opens more facilities.

“It has been a slow process. As people

become more comfortable, they are slowly

coming back,” he said. “The reopening of

the pool and allowing younger children in

the childcare room has helped.”

The center has been offering fitness

classes, pickleball and other activities that

can safely be done while distancing.

Pollack said that while the registration

for swim classes has not been what it normally

is, they are excited about the enthusiasm

of reopening the pool. He also said if

restrictions tighten up again, they would

not close the pool. They may not allow people

in depending on the restrictions, but

they will not drain it.

Winter Reading Challenge is back

Columbus Metropolitan Library (CML)

is bringing back for a third year its Winter

Reading Challenge, in which students can

earn prizes by reading over break. A twist

on CML’s Summer Reading Challenge,

Winter Reading Challenge aims to keep

reading skills strong when students are

out of school over the holidays. From Dec. 1

through Jan. 30, K-12 students can register

online at columbuslibrary.org/winterreading.

Additionally, K-6 teachers can

enroll their classrooms into the program.

This year’s Winter Reading Challenge

will be all-virtual due to the coronavirus

pandemic. All 23 CML locations are open

for curbside and walk-up services only.

Public entry is not permitted.

The annual program challenges individual

students or classrooms to track their

progress as they read for six hours and

complete six activities on their digital

game boards, at which time they will earn

a book they can keep, as well as a bookmark

and a mechanical pencil, plus a

Raising Cane’s coupon and a Donatos

coupon booklet. Examples of game board

activities include “Read a cookbook and

then make one of the recipes,” “Read a

biography and then dress up like the person,”

“Create a playlist for a book you read”

and many more.

Last winter, the program had nearly

6,900 registrations and more than 2,800

completions.

Studies show that kids who read during

out-of-school time maintain reading skills

that are critical to future school success.
