West Jefferson plans repairs to well at water plant

Staff Writer

West Jefferson village council appropriated

$28,000 to repair a well at the village’s

water plant located on Taylor Blair Road.

River helps to tell the story of Ohio’s frontier

The tranquil waters of the Scioto River were once anything but

placid.

The Scioto River and its tributaries, such as Big Darby Creek,

Big Walnut Creek, and the Olentangy River, were once hot beds of

activity as Prehistoric and Woodland Native Americans used them

as major transportation routes.

A new book by Janet Shailer, “Trouble on Scioto’s Waters — Soldiers,

Frontiersmen & Native Americans: 1725-1815,” explores the

Native American history surrounding these waterways.

“From 1754 to 1814, fighting raged within the state between Na-

tive Americans and their adversaries,” Shailer said. “Those years

are vital to understanding the history of Ohio. By 1843, the last of

the Native Americans left the state after the signing of the Treaty

with the Wyandots. A mere 18 years later, the Civil War would

start.”

The importance of the Scioto River watershed to Ohio’s early history

cannot be underestimated. This river was a transportation artery

for the Shawnee, Wyandot, Delaware, Ottawa, Seneca and

Miami on their way to camps in the Pickaway Plains and beyond.

The area between the Scioto River and Big Darby Creek was once

a cradle of Prehistoric and Woodland activity. This area alone has

artifacts from the Paleo-Indian, Adena, Hopewell and Fort Ancient

cultures. Battelle Darby Metro Park along Big Darby Creek, for one,

is continuously studied by archaeologists for its numerous mounds

and Native American artifacts that are still being discovered there.

Later the European fur trappers and frontiersmen understood their

significance, followed by soldiers from three different countries.

“I have included chapters on five men who were important figures

in central Ohio’s early history,” Shailer said. “They include Col.

William Crawford, Simon Girty and Jonathan Alder plus Native

Americans Blue Jacket and Tecumseh. The Indian Removal Act of

1830 began to drive the Native Americans

out of Ohio permanently.”

Shailer said the Native Americans

knew the Ohio country was a special

place and they helped to make it so.

“I believe that to understand the history

of a great people, we must thoroughly

study them, including walking

the ground where they once lived,” said

Shailer. “Part of this book is a guide to

visiting some of those sites. Native

Americans entered what is now central

Ohio about 9,000 to 10,000 years ago.”

For people interested in both Prehistoric

and Eastern Woodland Indians, the Middle Ohio Valley is an

archaeologist’s gold mine.

“The Ohio Historical & Archaeological Society estimated in the

1880s there were once 10,000 mounds and earthworks in Ohio

alone,” said Shailer. “Unfortunately, urban development has left us

with few remaining sites to see and explore.”

The Ohio History Connection has documented dozens of Prehistoric

and Eastern Woodland sites all along the edges of the Scioto

River.

“In Jackson Township/Franklin County, archaeological maps

show dozens of Native American sites along the edges of this waterway,”

said Shailer. “Other creeks in the Scioto River basin were

also important for development. On the western side of Franklin

County lies Big Darby Creek, another important transportation artery

for several tribes. In the eastern part of Franklin County, Alum

Creek runs south from Mount Gilead and joins Big Walnut and

Blacklick creeks in (now) Three Creeks Metro Park. The Adena

built at least seven mounds in the Alum Creek Valley.”

The book includes a guide to those who would like to visit sites

“Janet Shailer has captured a long-overlooked

portion of Ohio’s history, a past era

that we are still feeling the effects of today,”

said Rick Palsgrove, managing editor of the

Columbus Messenger Newspapers and director

of the Groveport Heritage Museum.

“The stories she tells of the Native Americans,

military and frontiersmen who helped

shape Ohio are fascinating. Her listing of

pertinent historical sites that help tell the

story of those times is helpful to those who

wish to see the places where this history

took shape.”

Janet Shailer is a former editor with the

Columbus Messenger Newspapers and has

written two other history books: “Images of

Grove City” and “Images of Modern America:

Grove City.” She wrote the novel, “The Austerlitz

books.

Smoke detectors available

The Jefferson Township Fire Department is participating in

a smoke detector program with the American Red Cross. Residents

of single-family homes in the village of West Jefferson,

Jefferson Township and Fairfield Township may be eligible to

receive smoke detectors at no cost.

The fire department will install up to one detector per floor

within the residence. Apartments are excluded from this program

because the property owner is required to provide smoke

detectors in these types of residences. All smoke detectors must

be installed by fire department personnel. Homeowners will not

be permitted to pick up smoke detectors from the fire department

for self-installation.

Anyone interested in requesting an installation can contact

Matt at MJackson@Jeffersontwpmadison.org

The homeowner will be required to complete a home safety

plan in accordance with American Red Cross guidelines. The

American Red Cross family disaster plan can be found at

w w w . r e d c r o s s . o r g / g e t - h e l p / h o w - t o - p r e p a r e - f o r -

emergencies/make-a-plan.html.

The fire department encourages those who do not participate

in the smoke detector program to complete a disaster plan, as

well. Knowing what to do in case of an emergency before an

emergency happens is essential to a family’s safety and recovery

from an incident.

Local author to hold book signing on March 13

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

“Ever since I was a kid, I’ve had stories in my

head,” said Linda Hoover whose newest book,

“Heart’s Desire,” came out in late December.

Hoover, who retired in October from South

Charleston’s Houston branch of the Clark County

Public Library, will hold a book signing from 2 to 4

p.m. March 13 at Village Chic, 17 S. Chillicothe St.,

South Charleston.

Hoover started putting pen to paper as a thirdgrader.

From then through her teen years, she

wrote fan fiction—riffing on stage plays like

“Oliver!,” fashioning stories about real-life pop stars,

and even writing herself into a story inspired by a

television show about a wagon train.

Her writing continued to evolve as she entered

into and moved through adulthood.

“I’ve always been a voracious reader, and I would

get upset with how books ended. So, I’d spend hours

rewriting the endings. Then, I got to thinking, why

not write my own book?” Hoover said.

She got serious about the pursuit after the South

Linda Hoover worked as a

library associate at Houston

Library for nearly 19

years before retiring last

fall. Now, she’s a full-time

author working from her

home office.

Charleston Spectator published several of her

columns and one of her stories as a 10-week serial.

That story, “Mountain Prophecy,” would become her

first book, published in 2016. She went on to release

“Lighter Than Air” in 2018 before turning to

“Heart’s Desire,” the first version of which she wrote

many, many years ago.

“I did a big revision because I had learned a lot

about writing since I first wrote it,” said Hoover,

who had honed her skills through a course with the

Institute for Children’s Literature and participation

in Columbus Ohio Fiction Writers, a chapter of Romance

Writers of America. She also is a member of

American Christian Fiction Writers.

Hoover bills herself as a writer of historical

Christian fiction for adults and young adults. All

three of her books are set more than 100 years back

in time, and all three contain elements of faith.

From those commonalities, they diverge vastly

when it comes to settings and storylines.

In “Mountain Prophecy,” set in 1918 in Appalachia,

two young women disappear into an abandoned

mine. The mountain families, who stand by

local folklore, think the culprits are trolls looking for

brides. Twin teenagers Dusty and Darla go about solving the mystery.

“Lighter Than Air” take place near Brighton, England, in 1900.

The main characters, Justin and Elena, each must accomplish a

task or their lives will never be the same. Unfortunately, they’re

working against each other.

In “Heart’s Desire,” Hoover takes the reader to Boston in 1880,

where Julia’s father has betrothed her to a wealthy man to cover

up a secret. Julia has no interest in the man because her sights are

set on Jacob, a middleclass jewelry store clerk.

“I am happy to have ‘Heart’s Desire’ out because I think the characters

are so much fun,” Hoover said, adding that she enjoyed writing

about the ways people socialized in the 1800s, from balls and

dinners to ice skating and sleighing, as well as about the serious

issue of class.

“Heart’s Desire” is the first in a series. Hoover is at work now on

the second book.

Linda Hoover’s latest book is “Heart’s Desire,”

a romantic and adventurous tale set

in Boston in 1880.

“The series starts with romance then

turns into a family saga. There will be more

romance in each book with more of the characters

introduced in the first book,” she said.

As of now, she is planning for the series

to be a trilogy.

“We’ll see if I can get it all done in

three...there’s a lot of story to tell,” she said.

All three of Hoover’s books are available

for purchase on Amazon in print and Kindle

formats.

FFA Week: Penny wars, egg tosses, and much more

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

Daily dress-up themes, trivia, a tractor

parade, and Olympic-style competitions

were all part of Southeastern High School’s

celebration of National FFA Week Feb. 22-

26. Community service played a big part in

the festivities, too.

The school’s FFA chapter organized

Penny Wars, a fundraiser to benefit Dayton

Children’s Hospital. Over the course of the

week, lunch study hall classes competed

against one another to see who could raise

the most positive points. A money collection

jar was assigned to each class. Each penny

donated counted as a positive point. Silver

coins and bills counted as negative points,

which competitors placed in opponents’ jars

to cancel out their positive points. The winning

class received Cheryl’s cookies. The effort

raised $120.

For a hands-on project, chapter members

tied 10 fleece blankets to donate to Ronald

McDonald House Charities of Central Indiana,

home of the National FFA Organization.

The Wical family donated materials for

half of the blankets. The chapter covered

the other half.

The chapter also encouraged others to

donate to the “Growing the Future” campaign

which benefitted the Ohio FFA Foundation,

Ohio FFA Convention and Ohio FFA

Camp Muskingum.

On Feb. 24, the tables were turned, and

rather than being on the giving end, the

Southeastern chapter was on the receiving

end. Los Mariachis in Springfield donated

20 percent of dine-in and carryout sales to

the chapter for purchases made by customers

who presented fundraising flyers for

the chapter.

In addition to doing good for others,

chapter members raised awareness about

agriculture and the FFA organization

through fun, interactive activities.

Dress-up themes by day were: America

Monday (red, white and blue), Denim Tuxedo

Tuesday (overalls were encouraged), Western

Wednesday/Hat Day, Flannel Friday Eve

for Thursday, and National Wear Blue Day

(official FFA dress code was encouraged).

Daily trivia topics, presented during lunch

study halls, included general agriculture

questions, FFA activities and opportunities,

supervised agricultural experiences, career

development in agricultural related fields,

and travel opportunities for FFA members.

Taking place in the high school’s agriculture

shop, Ag Olympics events included an

egg toss in which teams of two competed to

see who could toss an egg the longest distance

without breaking it. Ryan Flax and

school staff member Matt Harner won with

a record toss of 76 feet. For the bale toss, individuals

competed to see who could toss a

bale of straw the longest distance. Kelton

Kayleigh Clark works the Penny Wars table in the gymnasium during

lunch. The contest raised $120 for Dayton Children’s Hospital.

Olympics-style competitions the Southeastern FFA chapter held

during FFA Week. The other was a straw bale toss.

Keehner won the boys’ division with a record toss of 21.5 feet. Zoey

Workman won the girls’ division with a toss of 8 feet.

On Feb. 23, National FFA Alumni Day, three Southeastern FFA

alumni visited the high school to share stories about their FFA experiences

with current chapter members. Those alumni were Alissa

Armstrong, Andrew Armstrong and Lea Kimley.

A parade capped off FFA Week activities. On Feb. 26, several

students participated in a tractor drive-in, wheeling their tractors

into the school parking lot.

Southeastern’s 40-member chapter is led by advisors Darrick

Riggs and Ellyse Shafer. This year’s officers are: Emily Wical, president;

Austin Yoder, vice president of growing leaders; Julia Collier,

vice president of building communities; Ryan Flax, vice president

of strengthening agriculture; Fenton Ankeney, secretary; Ethan

Heskett, treasurer; and Kaleigh Clark, reporter.

4 ways established professionals can improve their resumes

Changing jobs can be a difficult decision to make, especially later in

one’s career. In many ways, landing a new job is more challenging than

ever thanks to the technology-driven society in which people live. Information

is shared faster than ever, and applying for jobs isn’t the same

as it might have been as recently as a decade ago.

One thing that has evolved is the resume. Although creating a

powerful resume has always been a challenge, writing, or modifying

one, for today’s digital world requires some insider tips.

Adapting a resume as one ages and has gained experience can be advantageous.

A well-crafted resume is one way for professionals to

demonstrate how their skill set is current and adaptable to today’s business

climate. The following tips can help improve a resume when the

time comes to move on to a new job.

1. Focus on your accomplishments

Rather than focusing on job responsibilities at each job you held,

gear the resume around what you achieved in each position. This will

help identify how you performed in the position, instead of just a general

retelling of what you did. It can be challenging to achieve this for

jobs that don’t naturally lend themselves to numerically quantitative

results (i.e., increased department sales by 15 percent), but it’s still possible

to use a resume to illustrate your achievements.

Rather than state that you were responsible for providing customer

service, explain that you built your reputation on conveying difficult

technical terms to the layperson, serving as the go-to employee for

translating job jargon for outside correspondence.

If you have quantitative proof of how you accomplished something,

certainly add it. This can include measures of profit growth, reduction

of debt or increase in customer base.

2. Aim for the future

Rather than emphasize what you did, highlight what you plan to do.

This means giving greater weight to the expertise that will translate into

your new position. Chances are you can find skills that you honed in

one or more jobs that translate into credentials that can be used on another.

All of the skills mentioned should be relevant to your career objective

and not just added to pad the resume. Therefore, unless your

brief stint waiting tables exemplifies how you developed customer service

skills, eliminate it.

3. Choose the right keywords

It’s important to optimize a resume for digital scanning, which has become

a major component of the employment sector. This includes

using the correct keywords and phrasing so that your resume will get

“flagged.” Take your cue from the job advertisements themselves and

mimic the verbiage used. Replace the lingo accordingly, tailoring it to

each job you apply for. Also, consult the “about us” area of a prospective

employer’s website. This area may offer clues about buzz words for the

industry.

4. Set yourself apart

Newspapers remain a valuable resource

Newspapers have been in circulation for centuries. Ancient

Romans produced government announcements

and posted them in prominent locations around the city.

In ancient China, news sheets were circulated among

court officials to share government news. However, it

wasn't until use of the printing press became widespread

that the new media of newsprint became available to the

general public. The 17th century was the first time much

of Europe and other areas around the world began to

produce something similar to what we now know as

newspapers.

Nowadays, many newspapers are still being printed on

a daily or weekly basis, but publishers also understand

the benefits of digital content. That is why newspapers

are now supplementing their print copy with digital and

interactive versions online. Should a person desire to

read a printed version, he or she can do so. Others can

access content online, which is typically updated regularly

as newsworthy items become available.

Newspapers have frequently been the first source people

turn to for information on various subjects, including

current events and sports. Even now, despite the prevalence

of television news, people still look to the newspapers

for in-depth coverage of hot topics. Additionally,

some newspaper content is mirrored online or offered

in some other complementary form. For example, fans

of comics in the newspaper may not realize they're a

major source of syndication revenue. In an effort to snag

a bigger chunk of key demographics, comics not only

are being run in the newspaper, but also are being

adapted into "apps" that can be viewed on tablets, computers

and smartphones to further their visibility.

The Internet may be creating a dramatic shift in the

business model and the products offered by newspapers,

but that isn't necessarily a bad thing, presenting new opportunities

for newspapers to expand on their offerings

in unique ways. Many papers now enable readers to express

their comments about news stories online, which

fosters a global discussion that can bring people from

various parts of the world together.

Newspapers also are shifting the mix of stories they offer

to provide a stronger balance of entertainment, lifestyle

and other subjects that are more relevant to people's

daily lives than politics and international affairs may be.

In turn, newspapers are attracting new readers both offline

and online.

HENRY

Clayton L. Henry, 29, of London died on

Feb. 19, 2021, in Galloway. Born on Sept.

18, 1991, in Marysville, he was the son of

Ramona and Jerry Henry. Clay had worked

at MRC Sales and built fences for various

companies, including Lowes. He loved

music, playing basketball, fishing and

drawing and was very mechanically inclined.

Survivors include: his father, Jerry

Henry; mother, Ramona Valance; sister,

Hannah Marie Henry; half-brother, Brandon

Kennedy; aunts and uncles, Tom

(Shari) Henry, special uncle Bill Henry,

Mary Lou (Buck) Daily and special aunt

Jenny (Brad) Hunter; and many cousins, including

special cousin Justin Henry. He was

preceded in death by: his grandparents,

Lealon and Jewell Henry; uncles, Dick and

John Henry; aunt, Joy Henry; cousin, Zak

Henry; and close friends, Jake Matson and

Nick Stephenson. Funeral services were

held on Feb. 27, 2021, in Newport Church

David Boyd Webber, beloved husband, father, son, uncle, neighbor,

business partner and friend to countless, died peacefully February 19, 2021, with

his loving family by his side. David was born May 21, 1954, to Robert and MaryLou

Webber in Mt. Sterling, Ohio and grew up on his family’s farm, just outside of town.

He was preceded in death by his father and grandparents, Robert and Kathryn

Webber and Bruce and Loutie LeMay Junk.

He is survived by his devoted and loving wife of 36 years Cynthia (Cindy) Hickey

Webber; his children Laura Anne (Annie) Webber and Matthew David Webber; sister

Catherine Steinhoff (Wayne) of Manchester, MA; sister-in-law Julie Rapp (Jay);

brother-in-law David Hickey (Annemarie); nieces and nephews Webber Steinhoff

(Vanessa), Boyd Steinhoff (Jenny), Kate Lu (Ting), Molly Rapp, Katie Rapp, Keeley Andreski (Mike), Sarah Fox

(Matt), Reilly Hickey; and grand nieces and nephews Keener Steinhoff, Grace Steinhoff, Mack Steinhoff, Louisa

Steinhoff, Gavin Andreski and Oliver Andreski.

Friends and family were very important in David’s life. They spent time with him and his family over the years

at The Webber Family Farm where events, such as fall hayrides, bonfires, pumpkin carving and Beta Brothers’

celebrations are legendary and full of memories. They gathered with him fall Saturdays for his renowned tailgate

parties at the Horseshoe to cheer on his Ohio State Buckeyes. They watched sunsets; sat on the roofwalk

overlooking Sconset on Nantucket; listened to the waves breaking on the beach; enjoyed horse races;

played golf, relished happy hour at the Men’s Grill; joined him for bourbon on his screened porch; and dined

at restaurants nationwide (nod to Patsy’s). It goes without saying David never met a stranger. David graduated

from Madison Plains High School in 1972 and attended The Ohio State University.

He was a member of Beta Theta Pi Fraternity. After graduation from OSU, he began a lifetime career in finance

and banking, beginning with a short stint at the Ohio Department of Commerce before returning to Mount

Sterling to work with his father at his family’s bank, The Sterling State Bank. Later he graduated from the

Stonier Graduate School of Banking (ABA) at Rutgers University. Mr. Webber enjoyed a 20-year career with

Bank One where he managed multiple commercial functions including the community bank, middle market

and national account divisions.

He built a community development division, which included low-income tax credit housing, small business

development lending and community-based retail distribution techniques. David was also a Senior Vice

President in charge of national indirect consumer lending programs. He served as a member of The Banc

One Capital Investment Committee, was on the board of Banc One Insurance Corporation and The Private

Banking Council. In 1999 Mr. Webber became one of the founding partners and a board member of Stonehenge

Capital Company, where he was chairman of the firm’s investment committee. He also served as the

managing director in charge of Stonehenge’s small business investment program, which invests in small and

disadvantaged businesses.

David’s distinguished finance and banking career led to appointments on numerous financial boards,

including advisory board member on Topmark Capital, Bluehenge Capital, American South Real Estate Fund

and Lakeview Growth Equity Fund. He was a founding member and board member of Heelstone Energy

Holdings, a renewable energy developer and operator. He was instrumental in the formation of the National

Urban League’s Urban Entrepreneur Partnership. Mr. Webber established multiple scholarships through OSU

for the I Know I Can Scholars’ Program for Columbus City School students.

David will be remembered for his strong leadership, business savvy, banking brilliance and financial acumen

in the business world. He was philanthropic and known for his larger-than-life personality, hearty infectious

laugh, engaging smile, keen wit, and kindheartedness. He leaves us with enough memories to last a lifetime.

A celebration of life to honor David will be held in the spring.

Family has entrusted SCHOEDINGER NORTHWEST with final arrangements.

BARBERY

Bonita May Barbery (Wellman) went

home to be with her Lord and Savior on Feb.

24, 2021, at the age of 78. She was born on

June 4, 1942, to Herman and Vivian Wellman.

She is survived by the love her life,

Eugene (Harold) Barbery, whom she married

on Oct. 3, 1966. That year, Bonita

asked Harold to use some of his tickets to

help her get all her nieces and nephews into

the General Motors annual Fourth of July

picnic. She was an hour-and-a-half late because

her fried chicken wouldn’t get done.

Harold waited, and it must have been really

good fried chicken because they were married

three months later and have been together

54 years. Bonnie is also survived by:

her daughter and son-in-law, Vivian and

Rick Brewer; her son and daughter-in-law,

Gene and Teresa Barbery; five grandchildren,

Patricia, Miranda, Gene, Christian

and Camron; three great-grandsons; her sister

and brother-in-law, Rose and Bob Green;

and many nieces, nephews and personal

friends. Bonita was a very hard-working

woman. She worked at General Motors, several

restaurants as a waitress through the

years, and finished her working career at

Micro Center Distribution Center. She loved

to work in the garden and flowerbeds, and

spring was her favorite time of year. She

couldn’t wait to get the first vegetable

plants in the garden. Anyone who knew her

knew she was an amazing cook. She loved

to make new dishes and then call someone

to be her “guinea pig.” She would make a

huge spread for holidays and family meals,

and she always made you feel special because

she would make each person’s favorite

dishes. Christmas time would find her baking

and making candy. From banana nut

bread to fudge, every treat she made was delicious.

Everyone looked forward to her

Christmas trays each year. But nobody

panic; she made sure Harold knows how to

make the fudge! Beyond cooking, Bonnie

was a very talented seamstress, having

made prom and wedding dresses to complete

outfits. She loved to crochet, and many

of us have been blessed to receive her

afghans, blankets, tablecloths, scarves and

more as gifts. Bonita was a strong, Christian

woman who made sure her family knew

the love of God and how deeply she loved

each of them. Her handwritten notes with

scriptures and words of encouragement

would turn up when they were needed the

most. Her children looked forward to getting

the morning Bible reading scriptures that

she had read and wanted to share. She was

a loving wife and mother and loved to help

others. She would never hesitate to help

someone in need, and even if she really

didn’t have it to give, she found a way.

Bonita loved her animals and rescued hundreds

of strays over the years. Her favorite

pasttime over the last few years was watching

her birds, squirrels, raccoons, bunnies

and any other animal that came into the

yard to eat the food she and Harold would

put out for them. Bonita requested to be cremated

with no funeral or memorial service.

Donations in her honor can be made to the

Fayette County Humane Society. Porter-

Tidd Funeral Home, Mount Sterling, assisted

the Barbery family.

EATON

Kathryn “Susan” Eaton, 63, of London,

Ohio, passed away on March 1, 2021. Susan

was preceded in death by her parents,

George and Helen Eaton, and son, Michael

Alexander Eaton. She is survived by: her

wife, Martha; brother, Bill (Diane) Eaton;

and sisters, Tracy Miller, Carol (Will) Hall

and Janice Eaton. The family will receive

friends for visitation on March 8 from 5 to 8

p.m. at Rader-McDonald-Tidd Funeral
