Cleaning up

the community

Messenger photos by Dedra Cordle

When Cheryl Arick (top right) woke up

in the morning on April 10, she said she

was fully human. But by the time she

began participating in a massive

cleanup effort throughout the city of

Grove City, she transformed into a

human and mountain goat hybrid. “I

didn’t expect to be climbing over

uneven rocks,” she said as she picked

up trash wrapped around a branch at

Gantz Park, “but so far my feet and balance

haven’t failed me yet.” Arick was

among more than 200 people representing

45 groups who took part in the

Keep Grove City Beautiful cleanup

effort. She is with TWIG (Together with

Important Goals) 184, whose members

often pick up litter at Gantz Park.

Gail Colwell (below) finds her first facial

mask of the day in the brush at Gantz

Park. The resident of Grove City and

TWIG 184 member said she was surprised

to have found so few of them.

Council seeks

clarity on fences

By Andrea Cordle

Grove City Editor

Grove City Council is considering legislation

that deals with privacy fencing.

At the April 5 meeting, council voted to

postpone an ordinance that would define

what is a privacy fence and restrict their

use.

According to Grove City Mayor Richard

“Ike” Stage, a privacy fence has not been

defined in the city’s code since it was

adopted in the mid-1970s. He said city officials

have been in numerous confusing situations

regarding fencing with homeowner’s

associations and people wanting to

build.

“This is an attempt to give clarity,” said

Stage. “What is a privacy fence and how is

it used?”

Stephen Smith, the city’s law director,

said residents will not have to tear down a

current privacy fence.

Despite carrying around heavy buckets and bags full of trash, Jim Swanson, Bev

Killian and Chris Killian (pictured from left to right) are in good spirits as they make

their final sweep along Gantz Road. The members of the Grove City Citizens Police

Academy Alumni Association said though it was dirty work, they were glad to do

their part to keep the city safer. The cleanup event on April 10 was organized by the

Keep Grove City Beautiful Committee and the Adopt-A-Street and Park families. City

officials said they hope to make it an annual event.

Southwest Public Libraries (SPL) has partnered with

the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) to distribute free

at-home COVID-19 test kits. The antigen rapid-test kits

have been purchased by the state and are offered free of

charge to the public on a voluntary basis.

The test is self-administered at home during a free session

with a telehealth proctor and offers results in approximately

15 minutes. To use, patrons will need an email

address, internet connection, and a device with a

webcam.

Those interested in picking up a test kit should

download the NAVICA app from Google Play or the

iOS App Store. The app enables users to find pickup

sites and receive a pickup pass, manage their

health profiles, and store test results for a limited

time.

The library is offering kits for no-contact pickup

only. To request a kit for pickup, patrons should:

1.Download the NAVICA app from Google Play

or iOS App Store and create an account.

2.Call the library and request a test kit for pickup.

3.Come pick up requested kit (labeled with last

name) from no-contact tables near the entrance.

4.Take the test kit home to complete. Users will

need to go to ohio.emed.com to start their telehealth

session. The telehealth proctor will guide

the user through collecting the sample and reading

and understanding results.

COUNCIL

Continued from page 1

“Everyone’s fence gets to stay as long as it’s legal,”

said Smith.

City Administrator Chuck Boso said the goal of the

legislation is to allow residents to have privacy and pet

control but to have fencing that is not detrimental to

the appeal of a neighborhood.

“That’s the big challenge,” he said.

According to the legislation, privacy fencing has

become a challenging zoning issue that impacts the

health, safety and welfare of the community and the

city administration would like to enforce stricter standards

to ensure high quality development, safer fencing

requirements, and more appealing neighborhood

aesthetics.

The legislation presented at the council meeting

defines a privacy fence as a barrier to inhibit public

view and provide seclusion and, when viewed at right

angles, having more than 50 percent of its vertical surface

area closed to light and air, constructed of wood

conditioned for exterior use, vinyl, stone, or masonry.

It goes on to say that no fence on any lot, except a privacy

fence, shall be erected more than four feet in

height. The height of a privacy fence shall not exceed

six feet in height or 36 feet in length on each side. The

legislation states that a privacy fence should not be

used to enclose the entire perimeter of the property.

Residents sent comments to the city via its social

media pages. Many were not in favor of the legislation,

not permitted to assist in any part of the test nor provide

any medical or testing advice.

•Users should contact their local health department for

any questions not related to pickup. (Franklin County

Department of Health 614-525-3160.)

•Please do not pick up if you are feeling unwell. A

friend or family member may pick up instead.

The tests are nasal swab antigen tests.

In collaborating with libraries and other organizations

across the state, ODH hopes to make test kits readily

available to everyone in all Ohio counties. The accessibility

of libraries makes them ideal partners.

“Libraries are trusted by their communities and are

available to all,” says Meredith Wickham, director of

Southwest Public Libraries. “By partnering with ODH, we

hope we can help simplify the process for those needing

testing for work, school, travel, or other purposes by providing

easy access to these kits. The SPL team is thrilled

to discover yet another way we can serve our community

during the pandemic.”

The library does not collect nor keep any personal information

in regards to these tests. The telehealth partner

handles all reporting to public health officials as required.

Southwest Public Libraries serves southwest Franklin

county and surrounding areas through its two branches,

Grove City Library and Westland Area Library. Visit

www.swpl.org for more information.

community events

Drive-thru lunch

LifeCare Alliance will host a spring drive-thru

event from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on April 28, May

12, and May 26 at the Evans Senior Center, 4330

Dudley Ave. in Grove City. Senior citizens (ages 60

plus) can drive by to receive a lunch from LifeCare.

There is no cost but donations are welcome. For more

information, call LifeCare Alliance at 614-437-2854.

saying it is limiting and it would prohibit people from

running a fence over the entire yard if they have a

larger property. Other residents just do not want their

local government telling them what they can and cannot

do with their property. Some residents are in favor

of the legislation because they are tired of looking at

unsightly fencing.

Councilman Aaron Schlabach said the residents

have made it clear to city officials that they do not

favor this legislation.

“We should listen,” he said.

Stage said city officials have listened to the public

and never intended to tell people to tear down their

fences.

“It (the legislation) needs to be fine-tuned,” said

Stage.

Other council members were also on the fence about

the legislation.

Ted Berry said what looks pleasing to one person

may look different to another. He said he would be

more apt to support legislation that deals with the

upkeep of fencing.

Roby Schottke said there are many valid reasons

why people want a stockade fence. He said the city

already has a code to deal with dilapidated fencing and

it is up to the city to enforce it.

Council agreed to postpone the ordinance until the

May 3 meeting for additional clarity.

The traditional cleanup event may be a

thing of the past in Jackson Township.

For more than a decade, the township

has hosted a weekend cleanup event in the

spring and fall at its administrative building

on Hoover Road that allowed residents

of the township, the city of Grove City, and

the village of Urbancrest to offload hundreds

of unwanted household items free of

charge.

“It has been one of our most popular

events,” said Township Administrator

Shane Farnsworth. “It would attract more

than a thousand vehicles and we would collect

tons of residential waste.”

When the COVID-19 pandemic swept

through the state last year, however, the

township cancelled its annual spring and

fall event but established a staggered

cleanup service to take its place.

It turns out the decision to make that

transition was even more popular.

According to Farnsworth, the staggered

cleanup service, which ran from May to

September, received the same amount of

engagement but elicited more positive

feedback overall from the residents.

“They were very appreciative of the convenience

of the extended service,” he said.

“They liked being able to drop off items

before they went to work, or after they

came home, and they liked not having to

worry about having things ready for only a

specific weekend.”

Farnsworth said their feedback has the

township thinking of making this a permanent

change.

“We will have to see what happens

when the pandemic subsides, but for right

now we certainly see the continued benefit

of this service.”

Starting on May 3, residents will once

Hydrant flushing

The Jackson Township Fire Department

will begin its annual hydrant-flushing program

on May 10. This includes hydrants in

Grove City and Urbancrest. The program

will be conducted Monday through Friday

from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., until all areas of

the township have been completed. It is

expected that the flushing will take two to

four weeks.

Hydrant flushing may cause water to

become rusty and to appear discolored.

Although the water is not harmful to drink,

it can cause discoloration of laundry. There

are products on the market, available at

most area pharmacies and grocery stores,

which should remove the rust from clothing

if discolored when washed in the rusty

water.

Spring Shredding Day

The Grove City Spring Shredding Day is

again be allowed to drop off unwanted

household items at the administrative

building, located at 3756 Hoover Road,

Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4

p.m., holidays excluded. The service will

run through Sept. 24.

Items accepted include residential bulk

trash, scrap metal and tires. The latter is

limited to four per vehicle. Hazardous

waste will not be accepted, and neither will

batteries.

Residents can also drop off unwanted e-

waste items year-round, but the township

cannot accept monitors and televisions at

this time.

“We’re trying to work something out

where we will be able to accept computer

monitors and television sets in the future,”

said Farnsworth.

There is a new addition to this year’s

cleanup service; residents can bring construction

material and some household furniture

that could be repurposed.

Farnsworth said the township is partnering

with Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore to

repurpose some used or excess material

goods.

“We are trying to keep as many items

out of the landfill as we can,” he said.

Farnsworth said if residents have any

questions regarding the cleanup to call the

office at 614-875-2742, send an email to

info@jacksontwp.org or visit

jacksontwp.org.

The township will also continue to offer

summertime brush pick-up services for

residents in the unincorporated areas. The

dates are set for May 24-28; June 21-25;

July 26-30; Aug. 23-27; and Sept. 20-24.

Farnsworth said he encourages residents

who live in these areas to call the township

office to let them know they plan to participate

in the brush pick-up on one of the

scheduled days.

“We don’t want to miss them,” he said.

Saturday, May 1 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at

Park Street Intermediate School, 3205

Park St.

The event is for Grove City, Jackson

Township and Urbancrest residents only.

No business shredding accepted. Limit of

five boxes or trash bags per car. All paper

is securely shredded offsite. Masks must be

worn at all times. Residents must retain

their boxes or bags after emptying paper in

provided shredding bins.

For additional information, call the

Grove City environmental coordinator at

614-277-3058.

Garden grows in Grove City

A community garden will be growing in Grove City

thanks in part to a local Boy Scout.

For his Eagle Scout project, 13-year-old Shane

Fuller, decided to work with the Grove City Parks and

Recreation Department to build a community garden

at Fryer Park. The Jackson Middle School student has

been part of Boy Scout Troop 136 in Grove City for

three years.

Fuller said he has always enjoyed gardening and

thought a community garden would be something

other people might enjoy too. He plans to build 30 4x12

foot beds, 20 4x10 foot beds, and four elevated beds for

the elderly or those with physical limitations.

“I was looking at gardens in Columbus and saw

something similar at Franklin Park Conservatory,”

said Fuller of the elevated beds for those who have a

hard time bending down. “I thought it was a good

idea.”

According to Kim Conrad, Grove City Parks and

Recreation director, there are a few privately-run community

gardens in the area, but this will be the first

active publicly operated community garden.

“This gives people an opportunity to get their hands

in soil and be part of the community,” she said.

The community garden at Fryer Park will start

with the 54 beds planned by Fuller. This will be one

quadrant of what Conrad hopes will be a larger garden.

“There is room to grow,” said Conrad. “If there is a

lot of interest, we are hoping to grow.”

Conrad said city officials decided to start at Fryer

Park but could build community gardens at other locations

in the city. She said the garden gives people a

space to grow vegetables, herbs, and flowers. It is ideal

for those who live in an apartment or condominium

who may not have space for a garden.

According to Fuller, he and a group of friends, will

build the beds in the upcoming weeks. He said the goal

is to have the community garden up and running by

mid-May.

“I hope people will use it,” said Fuller. “I want the

community to enjoy it.”

The city has already spent about $15,000 on the

project. Conrad said the total cost should be less than

$20,000.

Those interested in a garden plot can register

through the parks and recreation department.

According to Conrad, there may be a fee for a garden

plot, but city administrators are still trying to

determine if there will be a fee and what amount to

charge.

“The fee is still in question,” said Conrad. “It will be

under $50 and it may be refunded at the end of the season

or donated to local organizations.”

Leftover produce from the community garden will

be donated to local food pantries.

For more information on the community garden or

to reserve a plot, call the parks and recreation department

at 614-277-3050 or visit www.grovecityohio.gov.

Making Magical Moments

April 18, 2021 - GROVE CITY MESSENGER - PAGE 7

By Christine Bryant

Staff Writer

Thinking about having a yard sale? The good news is

you can get rid of some clutter while restoring hope in a

child’s life.

The Magical Moments Foundation will host Piles for

Smiles, a city-wide event on May 14-16 that will allow

Columbus area homeowners to donate some or all of the

proceeds from their yard sales to the non-profit organization.

The wish-granting foundation serves children with

facial differences that are the result of congenital anomalies,

facial burns or trauma.

Richard Kirschner, chair of plastic and reconstructive

surgery at Nationwide Children’s Hospital co-founded the

Magical Moments Foundation with his wife, Krista, just

over a year ago. As the director of the Cleft Lip and Palate

Center at the hospital, Kirschner says his life has long

been dedicated to serving children with facial differences

both at home and abroad.

“We saw a real need for Magical Moments,” he said.

“There are literally hundreds of wish-granting organizations

in the U.S. that do the good work of serving children

with life-threatening illnesses, but precious few that help

children with facial differences that threaten the quality of

their life for all of their lives.”

Krista Kirschner, whose background includes healthcare

work at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, serves as the

organization’s executive director. She says kids are growing

up in a world that is increasingly centered on appearance

and that defines beauty in a particular way.

“We need to look no further than the ads on our billboards

and magazines, in the media and on social media,”

she said. “We now even have filters to enhance our facial

appearance on social media and Zoom. This is the world in

which we live.”

Concerns about appearance can affect children’s selfesteem

and put them at risk for mental health disorders

like anxiety and depression, Richard Kirschner said. In

fact, recent studies show that up to 75 percent of children

admit to having been bullied at school and that 25 percent

have experienced cyberbullying.

“With all of this in mind, you can certainly understand

that, for some children living with a facial difference

resulting from a genetic condition, cleft lip and palate or

other congenital craniofacial differences, a birthmark, cancer

treatment or from facial trauma or burns, the world

can sometimes be a place of sadness, isolation and

even hopelessness,” he said.

Children born with facial differences and those

living with the scars of facial trauma may endure

the pain of teasing, bullying and isolation, he said.

“For many, appearance-related stigma can

interfere with their healing, their self-esteem and

their quality of life,” he said. “In any form, appearance-related

stigma can shatter dreams and leave

emotional scars that can remain for years.”

The Kirschners founded Magical Moments

Foundation to change all of this, they say by providing

magical moments for those with facial differences.

“Our mission is to restore children’s hope and

self-esteem while also fundamentally changing the

world in which they live,” Krista Kirschner said.

A girl named Sophia became the organization’s

first child to have her wish granted - a trip to Walt

Disney World. The Kirschners say Sophia was born

with a cleft lip and palate in Guizhou, China. She

was adopted by her parents in December of 2010, and

three months later, underwent the first of many surgical

procedures to reconstruct her lip, nose and palate.

On top of the several surgeries and painful recoveries

she endured, her father suddenly died in 2018.

“Magical Moments Foundation recently granted Sophia

the wish of a trip to Walt Disney World with her mother

and her younger brother and sister,” Krista Kirschner

said. “While in Orlando, Sophia, who dreams of becoming

a pastry chef, was also granted the opportunity to spend a

day with Rabii Saber, the executive pastry chef at the Four

Seasons Resort and one of the world’s finest, award-winning

pastry chefs.”

Columbus residents who wish to participate in Piles for

Smiles and donate a portion or all of their yard sale proceeds

to Magical Moments Foundation so that other children

like Sophia can realize their dreams can sign

up on the organization’s website at magicalmomentsfoundation.org

and clicking the “Piles for

Smiles” tab. Families can choose to host their sale

for one, two or all three days.

“We will provide participating households with a

toolkit to help them host their sale,” Richard

Kirschner said.

The toolkit will include signs, price stickers, a

tips and instruction sheet, a Magical Moments cash

donation box for shoppers who want to donate additional

funds and some Magical Moments brochures to help

raise awareness. The homeowner’s contribution is fully tax

deductible, he said.

“By participating in Piles for Smiles, families can dispose

of their gently used items, earn some cash, have some

fun and help make children’s dreams come true,” he said.

Children may be nominated for a Magical Moment

through magicalmomentsfoundation.org. Children ages 3

through 18 are eligible and may be nominated by family,

friends, neighbors, teachers and healthcare providers.

“The most important consideration in granting a

Magical Moment is the impact that the wish will have on

their lives,” Krista Kirschner said. “In granting each

Magical Moment, we aim to craft a memorable experience

that will not only bring joy, but also restore hope and

encouragement.”

Livestock legislation halted

www.columbusmessenger.com

By Dedra Cordle

Staff Writer

Differing versions of an ordinance to prohibit farm

animals and livestock from taking up residence in the

village of Urbancrest has temporarily halted its adoption.

The mix-up was unveiled at the April 13 council

meeting as the third and final reading of the policy

went up for a vote. Before that vote could happen and

turn this policy into village law, Law Director Rodd

Lawrence said that it was not in the “correct legal form

to be approved.”

According to Lawrence, the text of the legislation

was missing the correct legal language and form, thus

making the ordinance unsubstantial.

“There is no substance to this ordinance,” he said.

He then asked the council if they had made any

changes to the ordinance as the same concerns were

expressed last year.

In August, village council introduced its first version

of the ordinance that would prohibit residents

from possessing farm animals or livestock on their

property. It was pulled from the table shortly thereafter

because Lawrence said it was “not in the correct

form.” Additionally, code enforcement officer Randall

Bogue wanted to make clarifications about service animals

within the text.

After Lawrence questioned the latest version, councilwoman

Alicia Wiggins said that the version he had

before him was the wrong version.

“We made changes to that version and I gave an

updated copy to you and the council at the meeting in

December,” she said.

While attending the meeting virtually, Wiggins

read her version of the legislation and Lawrence

agreed that it appeared to be in the correct form. The

problem, however, was that members of the council

and the law director all had different versions of the

legislation.

Because the majority of the council was attending

virtually, copies of the latest version of the legislation

could not be distributed. Instead, the council agreed to

once again table the passage of the legislation until

May so they could “all get on the same page.”

The latest version does include changes from the

version that was presented last year and it is not just

limited to the legal language of the documents. The

version that is slated to be voted upon next month

includes changes to the time residents have to remove

an animal after receiving a cease and desist order (30

days in the first version, 35 days in the latest) and the

exclusion of fines. Wiggins said they did not see the

point of issuing fines as she did not believe they would

be enforced.

Mayor Joseph Barnes Sr. said fines have been

issued and collected before in regard to other ordinances

being violated.

However, he added that residents usually comply to

cease and desist orders, which make the prospect of

fines null.

Pictorial Past

The Greyhound Grandstand track opened in September

1926 on a former large apple orchard owned by C.F.

Neiswender. The greyhound racetrack thrived, in part,

because race fans could spend an afternoon watching the

horses at Beulah Park and an evening watching the greyhounds

within the same small town. The photos and information

in the Pictorial Past are provided by Don Ivers, curator of

the Grove City Welcome Center and Museum.

Spring Auto Care

Spring Auto Care

What your car color says about you

Cars and trucks may be modes of transportation,

but many people see their vehicles as extensions of

their personalities.

The color of a vehicle can say a lot about its driver.

Automotive experts say color affects drivers’ decisions

when they’re buying new vehicles. In 2015, a survey

from PPG Automotive Coatings found the color palette

of black, silver, gray, and white makes up 75 percent of

new cars on the road. White has been the most popular

car color for years, perhaps because neutral tones tend

to look new for years, improving resale value as a

result.

The Pantone Color Institute periodically highlights

popular trends in colors for home decorating, graphic

design, fashion, and much more. Their experts know a

thing about what color can say about a person. Here’s

a look at how drivers may perceive themselves (and

how others view them) based on their color choices in

vehicles, courtesy of Pantone, NerdWallet, Thrillist,

and Today.com.

•White: This color can often project a persona of a

diligent, hardworking person. White is a dependable

color that also is sleek and modern. Many people who

prefer white also like the purity of the color and its perceived

cleanliness.

•Black: Black vehicles have stood the test of time as

status symbols. Those who purchase black cars may

view them as classic and powerful. Black also conveys

elegance. That’s why limousines and hired cars are

often black.

•Silver: Silver cars may have futuristic connotations

because of their metallic hues. Silver vehicles

also can be elegant and prestigious. A certain element

of modernity is associated with silver cars and trucks.

•Gray: People who choose gray vehicles may be less

concerned about status and more interested in a vehicle

that blends in with the crowd. This no-nonsense

hue could be ideal for cautious, even-keeled drivers

who like to go with the flow.

•Blue: Light blue to mid-blue cars convey a sense of

calm and coolness. Blue is a dependable color and may

indicate the person behind the wheel is friendly. Dark

blue can be a confidence-booster and also signal

authority, as many police cruisers and law enforcement

uniforms feature deep blue.

•Red: People who own red cars probably like flash

and attention. They’re likely magnetic personalities

who enjoy standing out in a crowd.

•Green: Green cars indicate owners who have a

strong sense of self and care little about what others

think of them. They may be the people who march to

the beat of their own drums. But the popularity of

green cars peaked in the 1990s, so fewer green cars

may be on the road today than in the past.

Zachary is one good

looking guy. This 1-

year-old is high energy

and lacks a lot of

manners. He can get

mouthy when really

excited, but can be

redirected with toys

and treats. He would

do best in a home

with no small kids because of these behaviors.

Zach also has a very high-pitched bark

so you better be friendly with your neighbors.

If you’re ready to support this guy, schedule

an appointment at the Franklin County Dog

Shelter and meet Zachary today.

FYI: www.franklincountydogs.com

Raisin is a shy, 5-

year-old pit bull mix.

He is still adjusting to

the shelter, so his

behavior is a little

quiet and reserved.

Once he is in a new

home, Raisin may

relax immediately

and become much

more social, or he

may need a little

more time and patience to come out of his

shell. He is up for adoption at the Franklin

County Dog Shelter.

FYI: www.franklincountydogs.com

Willow Rosenberg

is about 1 year old.

She is super playful

but likes to chill.

Willow is spayed,

micro-chipped, and

up to date on vaccines.

She is eager to

find a loving forever

home. She is up for

adoption through

Colony Cats and

Dogs.

FYI: www.colonycats.org

Margaret is a sweet

girl who is about 2

years old. She loves

attention and wants

her human to pet her

all the time. Margaret

is eager to find her

forever home with

someone looking for

a cuddle companion.

If you would like to

learn more about

Margaret, contact Friends for Life Animal

Haven.

A memorial tells the story of your loved ones

to future generations. The experts at Hannigan

Memorials, part of the Modlich Monument

Company, have tips on choosing just the right

monument.

Plan ahead

Aim to purchase a memorial before the emotional

time of losing a loved one. Even with cremations,

there are memorial options, such as

burying cremains and erecting a monument; creating

a cut-out in a monument and sealing the cremains

inside; or using a decorative urn inside a

mausoleum.

“A memorial takes time to complete and place

in the cemetery,” said Chad Sothard, branch manager

of Hannigan Memorials. “We deliver and

install every monument we build, making sure

everything is just right for our customers.”

PAID ADVERTISING

How to memorialize a lost loved one

Match the memorial to your lot

Some cemeteries restrict the size, shape or

material used for memorials. “We have experience

working with a variety of budgets and different

cemeteries to help ensure your final memorial

choice fits your personal taste, budget and cemetery

regulations,” said Sothard.

Personalize your memorial

“We believe a memorial is as unique as the life

it commemorates,” Sothard said. “Our craftsmen

can create any type of memorial, with stones in

any type, color, shape or size.” Customers can

choose their engraving, from standard sandblasting

to hand diamond-etched portraits. Hannigan

also provides computer-generated scale drawings,

so customers can easily visualize their

memorial.

PAGE 16 - GROVE CITY MESSENGER - April 18, 2021

Low brow humor can be

found in “under Force”

I am going to begin this movie review

with a visualization session. It will help

you, the reader and potential movie watcher,

determine your level of tolerance for

icky and strange things done in the name

of comedy.

Picture a plateful of chicken cutlets,

boneless and skinless, to be exact. I don’t

want you to think about the best way to

prepare them, just picture it as is. Now,

envision someone shoveling those glistening

bits of flesh into their gaping and gleeful

maw, and then transition into watching

that same person being delicately fed those

unseasoned cuts during a romantic interlude

with someone sporting crab claws in

lieu of typical hands.

If that short, albeit graphic, visualization

session entirely grossed you out and

did not elicit even a small smile, you might

not be the right audience for “Thunder

Force,” an absurdist superhero comedy now

streaming on Netflix. However, if you were

intrigued by its potential and don’t mind

setting your brain to ‘entertained by very

stupid things,’ this might be the right

movie for you.

Much like eating raw or undercooked

meats, I had strong reservations about this

film. Though its original form had a lot of

appeal as it starred Melissa McCarthy and

Octavia Spencer in the superhero roles, it

was the wording on the package that said

“written and directed by Ben Falcone” that

gave me the most pause.

I have nothing against Falcone. I believe

him to be a kind person, but I have also

watched a majority of the films that he has

written and/or directed and come away less

than impressed. While they all have

glimpses of promise, mostly because they

feature his wife and national treasure

Melissa McCarthy, overall, they are lacking.

Though the warning signs were there, I

decided to proceed with “Thunder Force”

because, frankly, I was in the mood to

watch something dumb. And I have to say

that it met my want for stupidity and yet it

slightly exceeded my expectations because

it wasn’t as disappointing as I thought it

would be.

It begins as all superhero films do — with

an origin story. It is the year 1983 and a

massive pulse of interstellar cosmic rays

have struck Earth. While a majority of the

population was unaffected by this most

unusual event, it exclusively granted powers

to those exhibiting the traits of

sociopaths. Needless to say, the following

years have not been so great for the nonmiscreants.

Fast forward to present day and Emily

Stanton (Spencer), a billionaire biotech

genius who lost her parents in a miscreant

attack, has developed a serum to give nonsociopaths

powers to stop their deadly and

destructive reign. But just when it seems

that all of her plans to change the world are

going according to plan, they get sidetracked

by a bulldozing blast from the past.

The Reel Deal

Dedra Cordle

Out of the blue, Emily gets a text message

from her ex-best friend Lydia Berman

(McCarthy) who wants her to attend their

high school class reunion. Though she

makes a promise to attend, she gets sidetracked

with her studies and forgets the

date. Much to her surprise, Lydia shows up

at her high-rise complex in Chicago in

order to take her there but things quickly

go astray. According to Emily, Lydia has

always been something of a disaster, a

loyal friend, but someone who always

wants to mess about where there are so

many serious things going on. So, it really

shouldn’t have been a surprise when she

leaves Lydia unattended on the premises

and comes back to find her strapped to the

molecular changing machine and injected

with the serum that gives people superpowers.

With Lydia sequestered in a complex,

and with Emily undergoing her own transformation

to become invisible, one might

think plenty of time would be given to them

repairing their friendship and finding a

way to become an effective force to battle

the miscreants by using their own

strengths and weaknesses. But no. Most is

spent on repetitive scenes of Lydia’s treatments

and tests, and repetitive jokes that

don’t land the first, or the second, or the

third time they are said.

When the action finally gets underway,

it doesn’t land that well either, especially

with the way the fight scenes were staged.

With the negative aspects, one might

wonder what makes this film watchable, or

even somewhat enjoyable. And to that I say

it’s the heart between McCarthy and

Spencer and the side characters which

include a miscreant woman (Pom

Klementieff) who blows things up with her

hands, a “half-creant” named The Crab

(Jason Bateman) and a would-be mayoral

candidate (Bobby Cannavale) who moonlights

as a decent person. With these three,

you get the sharpest dialogue, the funniest

puns, and great scenes of physical comedy,

such as The Crab scuttling away during a

gunfight.

Were my brain not set in an ‘entertained

by low brow humor’ kind of mood, I’m not

sure I would have found much to like about

“Thunder Force.” I mean, even at that setting

I could see how much it could be

improved had it leaned more fully on the

absurdist humor. But still, it gave me quite

a few laughs and I probably would watch it

again given a chance. And that is more

than I can say about some of Falcone’s

other theatrical attempts.
