Eagles win nailbiter

West Jefferson’s M.J. Book goes up against Madison-Plains’ Dalton Cunningham

early in a Jan. 15. matchup. Madison-Plains won the nail biter 37-36. Book led all scorers

with 15 points, while Cunningham contributed five points for Madison-Plains.

In conjunction with Ohio’s statewide efforts

to distribute COVID-19 vaccines to

Ohioans in Phase 1B, Madison County Public

Health (MCPH), the Madison County

Emergency Management Agency (EMA),

and other community partners are

prepared to lead the vaccination

efforts in Madison County.

Health Commissioner

Chris Cook said Madison

County is prepared to receive

and give vaccine but MCPH will

not get enough to take care of

everyone at the same

time.

“Vaccine supply will

not meet demand right

now. We know there are

people who are eligible

and want vaccine. It’s

coming, but it will be

over the period of weeks and months,” Cook

said.

There are only two approved vaccines

right now. As supply increases and other

manufacturers are approved, COVID-19

vaccine will be available to more Ohioans

and at more locations. Gov. Mike DeWine

announced that Phase 1B will include

Ohioans age 65 and older, those living with

severe congenital or developmental disorders,

and K-12 school employees.

Phase 1B began the week of Jan. 18 and

includes a tiered approach. During the week

of Jan. 18, limited supplies of vaccine were

administered to those who are age 80 and

older. During the week of Jan. 25, people

who are age 75 and older, plus those with

severe congenital or developmental disorders,

will become eligible. During the week

of Feb. 1, the group of people eligible to get

vaccine will be expanded to age 70 and older

and school staff. Finally, during the week of

Feb. 8 people who are age 65 and older will

become eligible.

Cook stressed that over the coming

weeks the vaccine supply Madison

County is expected to receive is in

the hundreds, not thousands.

“There are 6,500 people in

Madison County who are age

65 and older, plus many more

with severe congenital or developmental

disorders,” Cook

said. “Getting vaccine to

people is our top priority.

This will take time

and patience because of

the limited doses available.”

Depending on

supply, vaccination of

all Phase 1B will likely take months to complete.

While moving through Phase 1B,

MCPH will simultaneously administer second

doses to those vaccinated in Phase 1A.

Residents can visit covidvaccine.madisonph.org

to pre-register for vaccine and to

watch for upcoming clinics. Registration

forms also will be available at clinics and at

the MCPH office at 306 Lafayette St. in

London. People should only come to a clinic

when they become eligible for vaccine according

to the governor’s “phased” approach.

Because vaccine is provided to

counties based on the number of people who

are currently eligible for vaccine, residents

should get vaccine in their “home” county.

Cook said that clinics will be scheduled

as soon as vaccine arrives in the county.

The Presbyterian Child Center, a Mission of First Presbyterian Church

at 211 Garfield Avenue in London, would like to thank Buckeye Ford

of London for a $2500 donation on behalf of our Corporate Sponsorship

Program. This program was started to get the support of local

companies in Madison & Clark Counties to financially assist our nonprofit

daycare center with much needed repairs, upgrades, and

supplies.

of the intersection makes it a challenge, and

that’s why there are so many failure-to-yield

problems there.”

This will be Madison County’s first rural

roundabout. Area residents likely are most

familiar with the roundabouts at I-70 and

29 in the county and those involving lower

speed limits in Hilliard and Dublin in

Franklin County.

“With the roundabout at 38 and 29, you

have two 55 mph state roads. It will be a little

different for us,” Dhume said.

He noted that ODOT’s plans include

Food trucks are coming to West Jefferson

in 2021.

On Jan. 18, village council approved an

ordinance allowing food trucks to operate in

the village. A summer schedule is in the

works.

“We would like to encourage food trucks

to come out once a month (and) maybe have

some activities specifically focused on the

trucks,” said Mayor Ray Martin.

The village does not intend for food

trucks to be a daily occurrence, he added.

Under the new ordinance, those who

wish to operate a food truck must acquire a

mobile food license from Madison County

Public Health and a permit from West Jefferson’s

director of public safety.

Food trucks cannot operate between mid-

night and 6 a.m. They cannot operate within 100 feet of an existing,

fixed location food service establishment, such as a bakery or

restaurant, or within 500 feet of any kindergarten through 12th

grade school one hour before school starts through one hour after

school ends.

To minimize disturbance, food trucks cannot play music, repetitive

sounds or announcements from their vehicle. They must provide

trash cans for customers and clean up trash when they move

their vehicle. They must obey all traffic laws.

In other news, the village extended the Families First Coronavirus

Response Act to March 31, 2021. The act uses Coronavirus

Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act funding to pay government

employees if they test positive for COVID-19 or if they are quarantined

by Madison County Public Health.

The act does not cover police officers as they are critical personnel,

Martin said.

If police officers are issued a quarantine, they must still go to

work, but the village monitors their temperature and symptoms

daily and keeps them away from the public as possible. If an officer

tests positive for COVID-19, they may quarantine with pay.

The act was first passed in March 2020.

measures to slow and direct traffic into the proper lanes as it approaches

the roundabout.

“But I’m sure there will be a learning curve,” Dhume said.

He added that roundabouts can present challenges if they are

not designed properly. One of the keys for the 38/29 roundabout will

be a design that allows for safe flow of trucks and agricultural vehicles

and equipment, he said.

“Roundabouts are effective at decreasing right-angle injury accidents

which is what we have (at 38 and 29) primarily,” Dhume

continued.

Prior to the increase in the state gas tax rate one-and-a-half

years ago, ODOT had slated 35 intersection improvement projects.

The 38/29 intersection was not on that list. ODOT increased the

project number to 70 once the tax increase went into effect. The

38/29 intersection made the second cut.

he said.

If vaccine is available each week, drivethrough

clinics will be held every Tuesday

should check the MCPH website before

planning to attend a clinic.

“Whether or not we hold a clinic on a

If possible, the village of Mount Sterling

will offer some new and returning community

events this year.

“It all depends on COVID what we’re

going to be able to do,” said council member

Melanie Fritz who serves on the parks and

recreation committee.

The new idea is a flea market to take

place on the first Sunday of each month

starting in April at Mason Park. Organizers

plan to invite food trucks to set up and

hope to open the park’s concession stand.

The market would be open to businesses,

groups, and individuals who want to set up

booths.

The Market Crew, a group that promotes

businesses and events in Mount Sterling,

enjoyed a large turnout at a flea market

they hosted. Fritz said that proof of concept

got the parks and recreation committee

thinking about doing the same.

“We also want to utilize Mason Park

vaccine updates.

While vaccine and clinics will be somewhat

unpredictable for now, Cook said his

team is excited about the vaccine.

“We know it’s going to be limited for a

while, but vaccines will save lives and help

us turn the tide during this pandemic.”

Besides vaccine itself, medical personnel

to administer vaccine are in short supply.

Healthcare workers continue to be overly

taxed by the number of COVID-19 patients

they are caring for, which leaves only a few

people available to administer vaccine.

Cook explained that people who are licensed

and trained to administer vaccine can volunteer

to help at clinics.

“We are always looking for volunteers to

be part of our Medical Reserve Corps,” he

said.

Volunteers who are interested in helping

can contact MCPH at (740) 852-3065 or

more,” she said.

The park recently underwent several improvements,

including the addition of restrooms.

“I think the flea market would bring people

to Mount Sterling,” Fritz said.

The parks and recreation committee also

aims to bring back movie nights. The village

first hosted a series of movie nights in 2019,

showing family-friendly films on the village’s

large, inflatable screen.

“We couldn’t do any movie nights last

singing in a band in her younger years, and

singing and providing piano accompaniment

at her beloved home church, Newport

CCCU. Before moving to Lancaster, Bobbie

was very involved with the youth at her

church, teaching Sunday school and organizing

Vacational Bible School. She later

graduated from Ohio Christian University

with a degree in business. Her love and devotion

to God knew no bounds, and we are

comforted by the knowledge that she will

dwell with Him forever.

Bobbie was preceded in death by her parents,

Sally Jo (Zellar) Hoey December 23, 1943 - January 3, 2021

Our beloved wife and mother, Sally Jo Hoey, passed away peacefully on Sunday, January 3,

2021. She is survived by her loving husband, William Edward (Ted) Hoey and her daughter

and sons, Julie Hoey (Bill) Miller, Doug (Laura) Hoey and Jay (Alicia) Hoey. Sally is also survived

by two “daughters at heart” Marianne (Serge) Benoit and Isabel Sapriza, exchange students

who remain close to Sally and the family still today. Sally is also survived by her

cherished grandchildren, Liam and Delaney Miller, Will, Molly and Gavin Hoey, Alison and

Zachary Kittle, Faye, Reece and Josephine Hoey, and William Benoit; her sisters Martha Zellar and Crystal

(Steve) Zellar Hinkle; her nephews Jess (Tiffany) Hartman and Ian Hinkle; grand-niece Avery Hartman; and

many lifelong friends. She was predeceased by her sister, Lana Mae Zellar Boots, who passed away on May

2, 2020.

Born on December 23, 1943, to the late Ruth Genevieve (Ross) & Attorney Jay Bernard Zellar, Sally grew up

in Zanesville, Ohio, with her sisters, Lana, Martha and Crystal. She graduated from Zanesville High School

in 1961 and attended Ohio University. She returned to Zanesville to work at Ohio Bell and married William

Edward (“Ted”) Hoey from Cambridge, Ohio, on December 26, 1966. Sally’s priority was her family, and she

was a devoted wife and loving, caring mother. While supporting her husband and raising three children,

she went back to school part-time to attain her bachelor’s degree in Library Science from Ohio Dominican

College in Columbus, OH. A voracious reader herself, Sally sought to nurture and inspire the love of reading

in children of all ages and worked at the London Public Library for several years while her children were

young.

Sally joined the S & L Creative Carpet in 1984. Starting as the bookkeeper, her role and responsibilities grew

as she enjoyed learning all aspects of the flooring business. Sally’s passion and business acumen led her to

purchase the company in 1989. As one of Central Ohio’s first female business owners, she successfully

managed and grew the business, now known as Creative Carpet Flooring Mill Outlet, for over 30 years.

Philanthropy and service were important to Sally and she enjoyed being an active member of London’s

Rotary International and the Chamber of Commerce. She was an energetic supporter of Madison County

Hospital and cherished the time she spent volunteering with the Madison County Hospital Auxiliary, as

well as the Crisis Pregnancy Center and Coover Club. Sally was also a faithful parishioner at St. Patrick’s

Roman Catholic Church in London and later St. Francis by the Sea in Hilton Head, SC.

Sally will be remembered most as a loving, vivacious, generous, energetic, fun-loving and strong-willed

“force” who touched the lives of so many. Anyone who knew Sally knows that food was her “love language,”

and she showered her love on family and friends in the form of delicious dinners and fun times together.

She very much enjoyed entertaining and was a fantastic cook, known for her signature appetizers and

scrumptious Christmas cookies.

But it was her grandchildren (and grand-niece) that were the real loves of her life. She made frequent trips

to visit them and loved hosting family and friends at her home on Hilton Head Island. Her limitless

generosity, adventurous spirit, love of travel, boundless energy and “can-do” spirit were her hallmarks. She

was always busy juggling work and planning her next adventure. We have fond memories of many great

family trips together, from the Smoky Mountains to Orlando to Palm Springs to Paris. Sally was also a fierce

competitor who was always up for a game of cards, her favorite being the Five Crown tournaments she

played with her friends and grandchildren. Last but not least, Sally was always game for a “quick trip” to a

nearby casino where, whether it was a God-given gift or the luck of the Irish, she always seemed to win.

She will remain in our hearts forever. Due to COVID-19, funeral services will take place later this spring on

April 9, 2021, in Cambridge, Ohio (Bundy Law Funeral Home). In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in

Sally’s memory to Madison Health Foundation at www.madison-health.com (210 N. Main Street, London,

OH 43140) or the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation at https://cholangiocarcinoma.org/sally-hoey/.

PUBLIC HEARING

PY 2020 Madison County Small Cities Program

Madison County intends to apply to the Ohio Development Services Agency for

funding under the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Small Cities

Program, the HOME Investment Partnership Program, and other related state and

federally funded programs administered by the State of Ohio. The County is

eligible for several different types of PY 2021 programs providing the County

meets applicable program requirements. These programs include but are not

limited to the CDBG Community Development Allocation Program; Neighborhood

Revitalization, Critical Infrastructure and Downtown Revitalization

Programs; Economic Development and Public Infrastructure Program; Residential

Public Infrastructure Program; Discretionary Program; The Community Housing

Impact and Preservation Program; and, the Homeless and Supportive Housing

Programs. The State of Ohio anticipates it will receive approximately $64 million

from HUD to distribute on a statewide basis, based on the Consolidated Plan submitted

to HUD. The Consolidated Plan contains additional information on the

Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)/ HOME Small Cities Program, a

federally funded program administered by the State and funded by HUD.

A Public Hearing to discuss the programs available through the Ohio Small Cities

Program will be held on February 9, 2021, at 10:00 a.m., in the Commissioners’

Hearing Room, Madison County Courthouse, 1 N. Main Street, London, Ohio.

Madison County anticipates it will be eligible to apply for CDBG Community

Development funds, up to $500,000 in Critical Infrastructure grants, and up to

$750,000 in Neighborhood Revitalization funds. Grants of up to $500,000 are

available for Economic Development and Public Infrastructure. The CDBG Community

Development Program applications are due to the State in June 2021.

The other grants have an open cycle beginning July 1, 2021.

The Public Hearing will provide citizens, communities and local organizations

with explanation of eligible activities and program requirements for the

CDBG/HOME programs, including the CDBG community development programs,

the CDBG economic development programs, the CHIP and CDBG/HOME/OHTF

housing programs, and other HUD funded programs. The CDBG/HOME programs

can fund a broad range of activities including, but not limited to: economic

development projects, infrastructure improvements, development and rehabilitation

of housing, and neighborhood facilities improvements. The activities must

be designed to primarily benefit low- and moderate-income persons, aid in the

elimination of slum and blight, or meet an urgent need of the community.

Citizens of Madison County are encouraged to attend the public hearing to

provide their input on the County's CDBG/HOME programs. Large Print and

auxiliary aids materials will be made available, if requested in advance. For

information, please contact the Commissioner's Office at (740) 852-2972.
