$4 million–is the next major phase in the

“It is a very intricate deal,” said
Councilman Michael Flaherty, who spearheads

Groveport Road’s future
By Rick Palsgrove
Groveport Road has been an important
transportation artery since its beginnings
as a dirt trail leading from Columbus to
southeast Ohio in the early 1800s.
Now in the 21st century, as development
and traffic increases along the west
Groveport Road corridor between
Groveport and Obetz, area officials are
making plans to improve the road to handle
Groveport Mayor Lance Westcamp said
Groveport officials plan to meet with village
of Obetz and village of Lockbourne
officials on June 7 to talk about the future
needs and development of busy Groveport
“A roadway system doesn’t begin
and end in one jurisdiction. In order
for a road system to accommodate
traffic the jurisdictions where the traffic
will travel through must also be
part of the planning process.”
- B.J. King
Groveport city administrator
“With improvements spanning multiple
jurisdictions, it is important to partner
when identifying and planning for those
improvements,” said Groveport City
Administrator B.J. King. “A roadway system
doesn’t begin and end in one jurisdiction.
In order for a road system to accommodate
traffic the jurisdictions where the

The city of Groveport contracted with the
IBI Group to create a Groveport Road
Corridor Study to review west Groveport
Road between Groveport and Obetz from
State Route 317 to Bixby Road. The report
was presented to Groveport City Council on
May 17 by Jim Brenneman of the IBI Group.
Brenneman noted that the western portion
of the road located in Obetz is primarily
residential while the eastern portion
located in Groveport is mostly commercial/industrial.

Memorial Day observances
By Rick Palsgrove
Memorial Day is a solemn
and moving tradition for
Americans - whether they live
in big cities, small towns, or the
countryside - dating back to the
day’s origins in the post-Civil
Local Memorial Day ceremonies
In years past, a Memorial
Day ceremony has been held in
Asbury Cemetery, 4760
Winchester Pike, Columbus.
However, as of press time,
American Legion Robert Dutro
Post 486 could not confirm that
a ceremony would be held at
Asbury Cemetery this year.
In remembrance of fallen
veterans, VFW Post 10523 will
host Canal Winchester’s annual
Memorial Day ceremony on
May 31 at Union Grove
Cemetery, 400 Winchester
Cemetery Road, at 10:30 a.m.
The ceremony will feature
keynote speaker Col. Gregg
Hesterman, director of Staff-Air
for Joint Force Headquarters,
Ohio. Other ceremony participants will include the
Boy Scouts and the Canal Winchester High School
band. This year the VFW will also present a bench
dedicated to those who have served during the global
war on terrorism.
The public is invited to attend the ceremony. Public
health guidelines, including wearing facial coverings
and social distancing, will be required.
Lockbourne’s annual Memorial Day Parade and
Celebration will be held May 31 to honor veterans and
to recognize, “The Warrior Legacy: Generations of
Service in the Armed Forces.”
The event begins at noon with a parade through the
village followed by a ceremony directly after the
parade at the new Lockbourne Veterans Park, 95
Landis St. Seniors from Hamilton Local Schools who
have enlisted in the military will also be recognized.
“We will continue to focus on the history of
Lockbourne Air Force Base, as we plan to honor the
generations of service in the military throughout the
region,” said Lockbourne Mayor Christie Ward.
The deadline for submitting nominations for the
Ohio Veterans Hall of Fame is approaching and the
organization wants to hear from those who know former
service members who are excelling and making a
difference in society.
Now in its 28th year, the Hall of Fame recognizes
those who served in the U.S. Armed Forces and continue
to contribute to our communities, state, and nation
through exceptional acts of volunteerism, advocacy,
professional distinction, public service, or philanthropy.
Each year, the Ohio Veterans Hall of Fame inducts
up to 20 veterans based on recommendations from an
executive committee of veterans from throughout the
The parade will begin at the
east end of Commerce Street, head

“During the ceremony we will
highlight the generations of military
families in the area,” said
Ward. “Each year, Lockbourne
honors a current or former resident
who served in the military.
This year our honoree is the
McCumber family, who have three
generations of veterans.”
“We anticipate a strong presence
of veterans from the area,”
said Lockbourne Deputy
Administrator Rachel Ricker.
“This event is a central part of
the village, Hamilton Township,
and sur-rounding area. If you are
a part of a military family, please
let us know. We would love to
include your family name in our

on Wirt Road in Groveport near Heritage Park.
The event will be scaled down due to the ongoing
“The Memorial Day event will be similar to last
year’s. It will be a small gathering and those in attendance
will socially distance,” said Groveport City
Administrator B.J. King. “There will not be a
Memorial Day parade this year.”
The ceremony will be streamed on the city of
Groveport’s Facebook page. The guest speaker will be
Motts Military Museum Director Warren Motts.
Groveport American Legion Robert Dutro Post 486,
which has played a long time active role in the
Groveport Memorial Day ceremony, is named after
local resident, Private Robert Dutro, who in 1917 at
the age of 15 joined the 6th Marine Regiment during
World War I. He would later die in France on July 19,
1918 during the Aisne-Marne offensive. The Post was

Governor lifts COVID restrictions
Governor Mike DeWine announced the
lifting of coronavirus pandemic health
orders as of June 2.
On May 12, DeWine said the presence of
the vaccine and the ability of Ohioans to
follow safety protocols has lessened the
threat of the pandemic.
“Everyone can now control their own
health. Everyone can now control their own
destiny. So, it is time to end the health
orders,” said DeWine. “Our cases are down

the vaccine that all Ohioans 12 and over

“While we have this great weapon, the
danger of remaining unvaccinated is crystal
clear,” said DeWine. “The virus is still
here. Our cases are down, but that’s only
because 42 percent of our entire population
has now been vaccinated...for those who
are not vaccinated, the virus is just as dangerous
He said it is up to each citizen to decide
whether to get vaccinated or not.
“There comes a time when individual
responsibility simply must take over,” said
DeWine. “Ohio Department of Health
Director Stephanie McCloud will remove
all pandemic health orders, except those for
nursing homes and assisted living facilities,

In a public statement released May 7, the

have had on the entertainment industry
and festival sponsors.
Marie Gibbons, parade organizer, said,
“It is not feasible at this time to put on our
traditional event, which draws families
from all over Central Ohio. The committee
instead has been focusing on a smaller,
one-day event for our community that will

CW swimming pool
In light of the recent amendments to
public health guidelines by both DeWine
and the CDC, the city of Canal Winchester
revised its operational plan for the 2021
swimming pool season.
The Canal Winchester Municipal Pool
will open May 28, at 4 p.m. Pre-paid reservations
are no longer required. The pool
will be open for general admission from
noon — 8 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays,
and noon — 4 p.m. on Sundays. The pool
season will run through Sept. 5.
According to city officials, membership
and daily admission options will both be
available this year. Details on rates and
discounts can be found on the city’s website.
The pool will be available to rent for
parties on Fridays, Saturdays, and
Sundays during the season. Dates may be
booked during the season on a first come,
first served basis. Check the city’s website
for complete details, including rental fees
and available times.
Guests visiting the pool are encouraged
to bring their own chairs and blankets to
use during their visit as lounge chairs will
be available in limited quantities. A concession
stand is on site, serving hot dogs,
pizzas, nachos, drinks, candy, chips, frozen
treats, and much more. Guests are permitted
to bring their own food and drink,
although absolutely no glass containers or
alcohol are permitted.
Guests who are feeling ill or exhibiting
COVID-19 symptoms should stay home.
Following current health guidelines,
guests that are not vaccinated are asked to
wear a mask when not in the pool. This
includes moving around on the pool deck,
using the restrooms, visiting the concession
stand, and entering/exiting the facility.
Pool memberships and rental sales are
available to purchase on the city’s website.

Now, lifting these orders does not mean the

decisions about wearing a mask and social
distancing and when, for them, that’s
appropriate. Ohio businesses and schools,
as well, will make their own decisions
about how to best keep their customers,

Picture this: A man and a woman, separated
after a questionable amount of time,
gingerly walk toward each other with longing
in their eyes. As they get closer, soft
whimpers escape their mouths until their
foreheads, their noses, and their lips eventually
touch. After they engage in this display
of affection, the man gets down on his
knees and presses his head up against her
slightly swollen stomach. As he rises to his
feet, signaling the life growing inside her, a
cheer rings across the walls from the adoring
crowd, a true indicator of the love
between the two.
It’s a nice scene, right? A tender
moment between those who have apparently
overcome some adversity to be together.
Now, picture this: The man and the woman
so delicately painted above have gray and
rotting flesh, eyes a vibrant hue with
popped blood vessels and one of their bodies
is partially concave from a likely blow to
the back during a precursor to a zombie
outbreak in their city.
Welcome to Zack Snyder’s “Army of the
Dead,” a.k.a. one of the strangest movies I
have ever seen.
Taken by its premise alone — a rag-tag
team bands together to pull off a $200 million
heist in the middle of a city overrun by
the undead — the film had some promise.
“Army of the Dead” is sheer absurdity
The Reel Deal
After all, it is not
often the heist film
intersects with a zombie
film. But there are
too many moments of,
“What in the world is happening here?” to
make it the magical experience it could
It starts promising enough with a cold
open. A military convoy loaded with
weapons travels down the Nevada highway,
an odd metal box placed squarely in
the middle. As the special ops team tries to
puzzle out what is inside, they slam headon
with a vehicle driven by distracted newlyweds
and the door to the strange metal
box slowly opens due to the resulting
The military men are no match for what
is inside — a seemingly unkillable force
with inhuman strength and a real thirst for
man-flesh. It turns out this being also has
the ability to turn those who are bitten into
“alpha” zombies, capable of great speed,
strength, and smarts. Quickly amassing a
new army, they turn their sights onto the
first city they come across — Las Vegas.
After the cold opening, which introduces
us to the main characters of the film as
they fight off a horde in tune with a cover
of Elvis Presley’s famous song about the
town, we see the carnage and the aftermath.
Besides the zombie king and queen
mentioned above, it is the best thing about
The film then flashes forward a few
years to where the government has the city
walled off, though some still live in tents
nearby for some reason that is not
explained. There, we are reintroduced to
main character Scott Ward (Dave
Bautista), who escaped the initial undead
siege on the strip.
Wanting to never get near that place
again — especially as government leaders
plan to nuke the city — Scott decides to get
near that place again when a hotel magnate
learns that he is the name to go to
when you want to get things done.
And what this magnate (Hiroyuki
Sanada) wants is for Scott to use his military
skills and contacts to gather a team
together and rescue $200 million from his
hotel vault before the bomb is dropped. “If
you can coordinate and communicate, it
should be a simple in and out.”
But nothing is ever that simple, especially
as some members of the crew are
strangers who have their own agendas. But
the one thing they do have in common,
however, is their lack of knowledge about
the zombies who rule the city and the sweet
love story of the two who found love in a
hopeless place and claimed dominion over
When the crew make it to the city center,
the film simultaneously picks up the
pace and falls apart. While we get action -
an undead tiger, partially funny quips, and
a really cool set piece involving hibernating
zombies - we also get forced dialogue
between Scott and his estranged daughter,
unfunny quips from the secondary characters,
and the introduction of new undead
mythos. (Zombie fetus, anyone?)
But however many faults “Army of the
Dead” has, and there are many to be sure,
it does get points for originality and the
amount of sheer absurdity within. And
while those facts alone are not enough to
get me to recommend it to the general public,
it will probably score higher with fans
of Snyder or those who really just want to
turn off their brains and enjoy a heist film
featuring zombies and a little romance.
The film can be found on Netflix.

for. It will be managed by CASTO and
should be a cool project.”
Law Director Gene Hollins said the
commercial and retail development is a
good plan for Obetz and, because of the
unique nature of the partnership, is a
great example of reintroducing an underutilized
parcel of land back into the commerce
“We’re a catalyst for the right development,”
said Hollins. “CASTO wants to
bring in restaurants, multi-use tenants,
hotels, retail, commerce and offices. There
aren’t that many places out there doing
things like Obetz.”
Davisson also discussed the direction
the village wants to take regarding the
development of more than 800 acres on the
west side of Obetz along Lockbourne and
A private company hired by the village
is working on a master development plan
for the area.
“The goal is to have it adopted within
60 days,” said Davisson regarding the plan
timeline. “It tells you what should go
where–whether a warehouse or a coffee
shop should go where. It allows us to capital
plan for those projects.”
Mayor Angela Kirk said, while she
knows it is a lot of work in a short period
of time, she is excited about the plan and
knowing that Obetz is in the right place at
the right time.
While Davisson acknowledged plans
are always subject to change as land is
developed, he said, “This attempts to give
you some flexibility. Sometimes people
drag these plans out one to two years.”

Prater/Edinburgh Drive in Obetz; Swisher
Road in Franklin County; and Saltzgaber
Road, Greenpointe Drive, and State Route
317 in Groveport.
Currently there are plans to do the following
improvements along this corridor:
•The village of Obetz is improving the
intersection of Groveport and Bixby roads
to include left turn lanes west and east
bound on Groveport Road, signal modifications,
and improving the current condition
of Bixby Road south of the intersection to
the village corporation line. The estimated
cost for these intersection improvements is
approximately $1.6 million and the project
will be funded by the village of Obetz and
partially funded by nearby development.
The project is scheduled for 2021 with completion
expected by late 2021 or early 2022.
•An 165-unit apartment complex will be
built on 22.6 acres located in Obetz on the
northeast corner of Bixby and Groveport
roads, according to village of Obetz officials.
The developer for the project is
Redwood and this land is in the Groveport
Madison school district.
•Later in 2021 the following is expected
to be built at Saltzgaber and Groveport
roads: westbound and eastbound left turn
lanes on Groveport Road, eastbound right
turn lane on Groveport Road, and northbound
left turn lane on Saltzgaber Road.
•For potential construction in 2023 at
State Route 317 and Groveport Road are:
zero offset left turn lanes on both State
Route 317 approaches; a westbound right
turn lane on Groveport Road; a second
eastbound through lane from west of State
Route 317 past the Kroger traffic signal to
the Kroger right turn only entrance; and
Brenneman said that by 2030 it is recommended
Groveport Road become three
lanes with a center turn lane on the eastern
portion of the road. He said by 2040
Groveport Road is recommended to become
five lanes with a center turn lane on its
western portion. He said traffic signals and
improvements at various intersections can
be looked at as needed in the future.
He said roundabouts were considered
for some intersections, but that idea was
rejected because such roundabouts would
require too much space and too much right
of way in this area.
The proposed various future improvements
to Groveport Road could potentially
cost the village of Obetz an estimated $8.6
million, the city of Groveport an estimated
$2.7 million, and Franklin County an estimated
$3.1 million. Some costs could be
shared by developers.

There may not be any other towns in the
world with these exact names.
The village of Obetz was originally
known as Obetz Junction, in honor of settler
Charles Obetz. The village formed in
1838 as a stagecoach junction and incorporated
(A few years ago I heard of an unofficial
nickname that some people use to refer to
the area located between Groveport and
Obetz. They call this area “Gro-betz.”)
Lithopolis started out with the rather
mundane name of “Centerville” around
1814. The name was changed in 1836 to
Lithopolis, a name from the Greek term
meaning “Stone City.” It is an apt name for
the village because of the large deposits of
useful stone that
to be in 1831 and
owes its name to the
several Ohio and Erie
The second part of its name refers to Col.
James Kilbourne who helped establish the
Canal Winchester’s original name was
“Winchester” when it was founded in 1828
by Reuben Dove and John Colman. It was
named for Dove’s ancestral hometown of
However, in 1841, when the town got its
post office, the name was changed to Canal
Winchester to distinguish it from several
other towns in Ohio already called
An interesting thing about Canal
Winchester, because of its long name, is
how people will shorten the name at times
when speaking or on social media. Old
timers in the area tend to refer to the town
as “Winchester” while newer residents use
“Canal.” Some shorten it even further to
People began settling in what would
become Groveport around 1812. Groveport
was originally two towns - Wert’s Grove
(acknowledging the apple tree groves in the
area) founded by Jacob Wert; and Rarey’s
Port (because it was a port on the Ohio and
Erie Canal) founded by William Rarey. The
two towns sat side-by-side with College
Street as their common border. This
dual town arrangement proved confusing
for mail delivery as well as Ohio and Erie
Canal shipping schedules, so the townspeople
gathered at a town meeting in 1847 and
combined the two towns.
At that 1847 meeting someone suggested
naming the town “Palo Alto.”
That suggestion was discarded and Dr.
Abel Clark then proposed the name,
“Groveport.” Clark noted this name neither
favored, nor harmed either Wert or Rarey.
Distinct town names coupled with
unique histories help provide a sense of
Maybe the most important thing we call
our communities is, “home.”

Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost
announced that his office is now accepting
applications for the Teen Ambassador
The Attorney General’s Teen
Ambassador Board consists of high school
juniors and seniors from public, private,
charter, online and home schools in Ohio.
The mission of the program is to provide
Ohio’s future leaders with an inside look at
state law and government.
“Supporting and providing opportunities
to our youth is a great way to help
shape the future,” Yost said. “The Teen
Ambassador Board will enhance students’
leadership skills, and I hope that they take
this knowledge and build on it. I hope they
become inspired to pursue careers in public
service for the Buckeye State.”
The student board members advise the
office on issues relating to teens and work
with their peers to develop solutions to
They serve a one-year term during
which they will participate in activities
across the state.
Ohio high school students who will be
juniors or seniors during the 2021-22 academic
year are eligible to apply for the
Teen Ambassador Board.
Applications are due June 25 and can be
found at www.ohioattorneygeneral.gov.

When injury exposes the tooth
pulp, it can be serious since the
