Trash collection

changes in Prairie

By Amanda Ensinger

Staff Writer

The way trash is collected in Prairie

Township will be changing soon.

At a recent meeting, the board of

trustees approved a resolution placing

more regulation on how trash is collected

in the township. Among the changes with

the resolution are that trash haulers

should be licensed with the township, show

proof of current and valid general comprehensive

liability/vehicle insurance policy

Hague Avenue sanitary

sewer project receives funding

A total of $27.4 million in funding is being recommended

for 13 projects in Franklin County by the District 3

Public Works Integrating Committee. The communities

requested funding through a state capital improvement

program and a local transportation improvement program.

The programs are administered by the Ohio Public

Works Commission and provide financial assistance to

local communities for the improvement of their basic infrastructure

systems.

“The Ohio Public Works Commission continues to be an

important component in financing road, bridge, sanitary

sewer and sidewalk construction throughout Franklin

County,” said Franklin County Engineer Cornell

Robertson, who chairs the District 3 Public Works

Integrating Committee. “With this year’s awards, many

important infrastructure improvements for a variety of

local agencies will receive grants and loans necessary to

construct these projects.”

Eligible projects include improvements to roads,

bridges, culverts, water supply systems, wastewater

systems, storm water collection systems and

solid waste disposal facilities. County, city, village,

township and other infrastructure districts located

in Franklin County were eligible to apply.

The Franklin County Sanitary Engineer

received an award in the amount of $2.2

million for the North Hague Avenue sanitary

sewer collections system. The estimated

project cost is $4 million.

and be registered and in compliance with the requirements of the

Franklin County Board of Health.

The license is $150 and is valid until Dec. 31, 2021. Each year

haulers will need to purchase a new license.

“There will only be trash on a street one day a week and trash

must be in a proper container,” said Rob Peters, township administrator.

“A container must have a lid on it and if you already have

a container like this you don’t need to purchase a new one.”

Peters said residents will still be able to pick their own hauler,

as long as the hauler they select is licensed in the township.

Trash will be picked up on the eastside of the township on

Monday, the central part of the township on Tuesday, and the

western part of the township on Wednesday.

Peters previously said the reason for these changes is because

there has been an increasing rodent problem in the township.

“We are having a rat issue with the trash on the streets almost

every day of the week,” Peters said. “Having trash frequently out

is a food source for them. Not having trash out four days a week

will help solve this problem.”

He also said having trash just in bags on

Douglas, Ed, Jim

and Kip Malek

Ben Churchhill

the street for pickup is an issue.

“When trash is not in a container with a

lid, it is easily accessible to rodents and

racoons,” he said. “Having it in proper containers

will eliminate this issue, as well as

help keep the township clean because trash

bags won’t be opened, and trash won’t be

spilled everywhere by these animals.”

These changes will go into effect March

1, 2021.

In other news, the board approve a

COVID-19 leave policy. This policy is from

Jan. 1 to July 31 and allows any employee

who has tested positive for COVID-19 or

has had close contact exposure to an individual

with COVID-19 and is required to

quarantine be off work on administrative

leave. The employee’s department head

will report the incident requiring the necessary

administrative leave to the township

administrator for approval.

Any employee who is off work for exposure

and is not ill, will be required to work

from home if possible. Work from home status

will require approval by the township

administrator and will be considered work

time.

“COVID related incidents are paid as

administrative leave,” Peters said. “There

is no limit on time and each incident is

evaluated independently.”

Bus drivers in short supply in South-Western

By Dedra Cordle

Staff Writer

The South-Western City Schools transportation

department is experiencing a

staffing shortage.

At the Jan. 25 board of education meeting,

Transportation Supervisor Tim Cox

said during his annual report that the

number of bus drivers on hand do not meet

the number of drivers in years past.

“This has been a rough year,” he said.

According to the numbers in his report,

there are currently 180 full-time bus drivers,

48 bus aides, 17 substitute drivers and

13 substitute bus aides.

While those numbers may seem robust,

said Monte Detterman, the district’s director

of business services, they do fall well

short of the healthy staffing levels they like

to see.

“There is always a need for drivers,” he

said, “but in a typical year, we have 184

full-time bus drivers and between 25 and

30 substitute bus drivers.

“We know that those numbers are not

always feasible or reasonable, but that is

where we have been for the past couple of

years.”

The staffing shortage, he went on to

add, is not just being felt at the district.

“It is all over,” said Detterman. “Every

industry that needs CDL (Commercial

Driver’s License) drivers are experiencing

Blood drive at Doctors Hospital

healthy individuals to make an appointment

to give blood or platelets this month.

There will be a blood drive from 8:30 a.m.

to 1:30 p.m. at OhioHealth Doctors

WNA accepting applications

for scholarship program

The Westgate Neighbors Association

(WNA) is accepting applications for its

annual education scholarship. The $500

award is provided to a student pursuing

college or vocational education. Eligible

students may complete and submit their

application online at www.westgateneighbors.org.

Applications are due by March

31.

This scholarship is funded by a portion

of the proceeds from the annual Westgate

Home & Garden Tour. It is awarded to a

resident of Westgate who contributes to

the betterment of their community through

demonstrated service and leadership activities.

a shortage. I think this is a trend that will

continue well into the future.”

He said the department is currently

recruiting to shore up its numbers but said

it may take some time to fill the vacant

positions.

“This is not a job where we can hire

someone today and then they start driving

tomorrow,” Detterman said. “There is a

lengthy and involved process, even for the

people who currently have their CDL certification.

“They have to undergo drug testing, get

physicals and do so many hours of training

with instructors on school bus procedures.

When you add everything up, the hiring

process can take up to six weeks just to get

through the required training to be able to

drive students.”

He said not only is the district looking

for people who can meet those state standards,

but they are also looking for candidates

who show care and compassion

toward children.

“They are the frontline people,” he said.

“They are the first person the students see

when going to school and they are the last

person the students see when they are

going home. They have to have good interactions

with children and really be a caring

and compassionate presence.”

He said that those interested in being a

bus driver, whether it is in a full-time

capacity or as a substitute driver, can contact

the transportation services directly

through the district’s website or visit the

employment page at the district’s website,

www.swcsd.us.

Detterman and Cox both said that while

there is currently a staffing shortage, they

do not expect delays in bus routes.

“Our drivers are doing a fantastic job

and they will continue to get kids to school

on time and drop them back home on time

too,” said Detterman.

In other transportation news, the

department was recently named a recipient

of a Diesel Mitigation Trust Fund

Grant that will replace 23 buses over the

next three years. According to Detterman,

the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency

grant will cover 22.5 percent of the cost of

the bus replacement, which amounts to

roughly $518,811.

Detterman said they will replace the

older and less environmentally-friendly

bus models in their fleet.

“The buses that we use can range anywhere

between $65,000 to $115,000 per bus

so while this grant will not cover the entire

cost it will help offset some of the expenses,

which is great.”

The city of Columbus is beginning

to rewrite the zoning code.

The Columbus Department of

Development and the Department

of Building and Zoning Services are

leading the code rewrite project to

address inequality in the code and

changing zoning patterns across

the city.

“While the city is doing well and

certain communities are doing well,

other neighborhoods are not.

They’re not enjoying the same

opportunities or access to growth

that other areas of the city area,”

said Anthony Celebreeze, assistant

director of the Department of

Building and Zoning Services during

the Feb. 2 Greater Hilltop Area

Commission meeting.

The current version of the city’s

zoning code was written in the

early 1950s, Celebreeze said. The

city has revised the code multiple

times, but it has not completely

reviewed or rewritten the code

within the last 70 years.

With large amounts of growth

projected in the city, now is the

time to revisit the code, Celebreeze

said.

More than a million people are

expected to live in the city of

Columbus in the next 10 years. And

despite the pandemic, 2020 held

the second highest number of zoning

applications for building and

projects in the city.

Many current projects are also

being carried out through

coding variances, which

shows that “there’s a disconnect

with how our zoning

code is and what the

demand for development

is,” Celebreeze said.

Building desires in the

city are shifting toward

multi-family units and

increasingly walkable

should account for, he said.

The project will take place in

two phases. The first phase of the

project began in early December,

2020. The Department of

Development and the Department

of Building and Zoning Services

partnered with Lisa Wise

Consulting to develop a strategy for

the code rewrite. The city in the

process of gathering information,

thoughts and opinions from experts

and community members across

the city, which will then be used to

develop a strategy for the second

phase of the project, Celebreeze

said.

During the second phase, the

city will rewrite the code with feedback

from community members.

“So we’ll be bringing ideas to you

all about what we’re thinking, getting

feedback from you all and

going back and figuring out if we’re

on the wrong path or if we’re on the

right path,” Celebreeze said.

The first phase is projected to

end in the summer. The second

phase is estimated to take 18-24

months after that.

The Franklin Township trustees will

examine information related to a police

levy for the township. At a recent board

meeting, Franklin Township Police Chief

Byron Smith said asking voters for another

temporary levy won’t work.

“A temporary levy won’t sustain us

through the end of the year,” he said. “I

would like to petition the county auditor to

pull numbers related to replacing all three

levies the department currently has with

one permanent levy.”

The police department operates with

two permanent levies and one temporary or

timed levy. The timed levy brings in

approximately $600,000 a year and combined

the two permanent levies bring in

approximately $750,000 a year.

Smith said the department needs to get

this levy passed as soon as possible as they

are losing officers because of job insecurity

fears. He said they have already lost one

full-time officer and anticipate losing

another in the coming weeks. He said once

that happens, they will only have 10 fulltime

officers, including himself, and two

part-time officers. The department had 12

full-time officers and two part-time officers.

Trustee John Fleshman said while he

supports having the auditor look into this,

he is concerned residents won’t understand

they are combining all their existing levies

into one.

“If we combine these together it makes

it appear it is more than it is,” Fleshman

said. “If we just ask residents to make the

one temporary levy permanent, they may

understand that more.”

Trustee Aryeh Alex said it doesn’t hurt

to pull the numbers and then the board can

discuss next steps at an upcoming meeting.

Smith said if a levy isn’t passed, they

will not be able to proactively investigate

issues like drug trafficking, robberies and

other felony offenses. He also fears losing

staff.

“We will lose a minimum of five officers,”

he said. “We also will only be able to

take priority runs and won’t be able to

focus on the drug houses or other crime in

the region.”

Smith also asked the board to approve

allowing overtime for officers since they are

currently down several staff members.

safe,” Smith said. “I would like to ask the

board to allow overtime on a case-by-case

basis since this is a safety concern. We

have a big township and a lot of high crime

areas.”

Smith did say this could create a small

shortfall at the end of the year.

Alex said the board should consider putting

Chief Smith and the lieutenant on the

streets to help officers until these financial

matters are researched further.

“We have severe budget issues,” Alex

said. “We should put the chief and lieutenant

on the road before we spend additional

money.”

The board did allow Smith to start a

background check on replacing the officer

that left but agreed to table the request for

overtime.

Origins of the heart-shaped candy box

Here’s a look at some interesting numbers

associated with Valentine’s Day to celebrate

the love people have for one another.

•400: The year that Pope Gelasius

declared Feb.14 a day to honor Saint

Valentine.

•62: The percentage of adults who say

Hearts abound on February 14, and few

symbols (and gifts) are more widely associated

with a holiday than heart-shaped

boxes of chocolate are with Valentine’s

Day.

Chocolates became trendy in the mid-

19th century when the first chocolate bar

was made by British company J.S. Fry &

Sons by combining cacao powder with

sugar and cacao butter to make a rich,

melt-in-your-mouth treat that was

markedly different than the gritty and

greasy drinking chocolate that was losing

popularity in Europe. Within a few years,

competitor Cadbury introduced the first

box of chocolates. It was called the ‘Fancy

Box’ and it didn’t take long to become wildly

popular.

The marriage of chocolate and heartshaped

boxes seemed a natural progression,

but the National Valentine Collectors

Association says that heart-shaped boxes

actually predate chocolate boxes. Various

heart-shaped vessels were popularized a

century earlier. There even were heartshaped

porcelain boxes as well as ones for

sewing.

Having already introduced a chocolate

box, Richard Cadbury marketed the first

Valentine’s Day box in 1861. It was filled

with delicious chocolates, and later could

be saved as a keepsake to store special

notes or other mementos, according to the

North American Packaging Association.

Furthermore, the gift fit with Victorian

sensibilities in that it was demurely suggestive,

NPR reports. Its introduction coincided

perfectly with Valentine’s Day, which

Valentine’s Day by the numbers

they celebrate the holiday.

•1.7: The amount, in billions, that is

spent on candy for Valentine’s Day, according

to the National Retail Federation.

•512: The average dollar amount spent

per person for Valentine’s Day.

•58: The number of pounds, in millions,

of chocolate bought during Valentine’s Day

also soared in popularity around the same

time.

Giving chocolate on Valentine’s Day also

proved popular in North America. The

American chocolate company Hershey’s

introduced its Hershey’s Kisses in 1907,

and in 1912 the Whitman’s Sampler

arrived. In the 1920s, Russell Stover

unveiled their own heart-shaped boxes,

which today still include the Red Foil

Heart and the Secret Lace Heart.

Today, more than 36 million heartshaped

boxes holding 58 million pounds of

chocolate are sold each year, reports the

education resource SoftSchools. They have

become a quintessential symbol of

Valentine’s Day celebrations.

The meaning

of rose colors

Roses are a popular gift on Valentine’s

Day. When accompanied by a box of chocolates,

a bouquet of long-stemmed roses is

sure to make a sweetheart smile on Feb.

14.

Few people may know that the color of a

rose is meant to convey a certain message.

As a result, even the most head-over-heelsin-love

man or woman may not be saying

what they mean to say when giving roses.

If that special someone has a favorite color

of rose, then it might be wise to give that

color regardless of what tradition suggests.

But when sweethearts have no such preferences,

it might be best to keep this guide

in mind.

•Red: Red roses say “I love you.” Red is

symbolic of love, especially romantic love.

Red also symbolizes beauty, courage and

respect.

•Pink: Pink is a popular color on

Valentine’s Day, but sweethearts should

know that pink roses say “Thank you,”

which makes them a better choice for

friends than lovers.

•White: White roses say “I am the one

for you.” White symbolizes true love, purity,

innocence, reverence, humility, youthfulness,

and charm.

•Yellow: Yellow roses say “We’re

friends and I care about you.” Joy, gladness,

friendship, delight, and remembrance

are just a few of the sentiments yellow

conveys.

•Yellow with red tip: Yellow roses may

be best for friends, but yellow roses with

red tips say “I’m falling in love with you.”

•Orange/coral: Another awe-inspiring

color, orange/coral roses say “I want you in

my life.” This color indicates desire, enthusiasm

and fascination.

•Red and white together: A mixed bouquet

of red and white roses says “We are a

great match.”

•Peach: Peach symbolizes intimacy,

telling a lover, “Let’s make this a memorable

Valentine’s Day.”

Different color roses say different

things, meaning Valentine’s Day celebrants

can find a rose to convey any message

Hilltop History & Heritage

This advertisement is originally from 1917 and appeared in

the Hilltop Record, the newspaper predecessor to the

Columbus Messenger. The Hilltop Undertaking Company was

part of the Noble Allen Funeral Home, located at 2352 West

Broad St., on the north side of Broad between Oakley and

Wayne avenues. Mr. E.L. Engle was the general manager and

his wife, Mrs. E.L. Engle, was the lady embalmer. It was unusual

in this time period for a lady’s name to be listed in such an

ad because women were not generally accepted as

embalmers by the public. Also, note that two telephone numbers

appear on the ad. This is probably because, at that time,

competing, non-interconnecting telephone networks existed

throughout the country. So, at least two existed then on the

Hilltop and the Engles did not want to miss out on any potential

clients. The funeral home has long since been demolished.

Photo and caption submitted by the Hilltop Historical Society.

Pets of the week

Sally is hoping

someone will give

her the biggest gift of

all - a furever home!

This cutie is about 2

years old and was

plucked from the

country. Sally flops

on her side for full

body rubs. She really enjoys being near her

person to get as much pet time as she can.

Sally is available for adoption through Friends

for Life Animal Haven.

FYI: www.fflah.org

Cha Cha would

make a great addition

to any family. She

is mostly quiet, other

than snoring. She is

housebroken and

eager to please. She

enjoys a good nap,

playing with her toys

and going out for walks. She is well-mannered

and easy going. Cha Cha is up for adoption at

the Franklin County Dog Shelter. Make an

appointment to meet her today.

FYI: www.franklincountydogs.com

www.columbusmessenger.com

These furry friends are available

for adoption at local

rescues and shelters

Carmen, a 1-yearold

shepherd mix, is

still adjusting to the

shelter, so her behavior

has been a little

quiet and reserved.

Once she’s in a new

home, she may relax

and become more

social, or may need a little more time and

patience to come out of her shell. Make an

appointment to meet this sweet gal at the

county shelter.

FYI: www.franklincountydogs.com

Ellie and Lucy are

bonded sisters who

are 6 months old.

They are very sweet

and playful but are

shy with new people

and environments.

Ellie and Lucy will

need time to get

acclimated to a new home. They are both

spayed, microchipped, FL/FIV negative and

up to date on vaccines. They would love to

stay together if possible. Adopt these

adorable sisters from Colony Cats and Dogs.
