Remembering the fallen on Memorial Day<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

The village of Lockbourne rolled out the<br />

red, white and blue for its recent Memorial<br />

Day celebration after a year’s hiatus in<br />

2020 due to the COVID -9 pandemic.<br />

Held annually since 2006, the population<br />

of Lockbourne swells by hundreds to<br />

honor military soldiers, sailors, and airmen<br />

who gave their life in service to the country.<br />

While 500 onlookers from village residents<br />

to visitors from the surrounding area<br />

enjoyed a parade down Lockbourne’s main<br />

street, it was standing room only as 350<br />

individuals attended a ceremony in the<br />

town’s Veterans Park following the parade.<br />

“The town looks forward to having the<br />

Memorial Day parade and ceremony every<br />

year, which brings the community together,”<br />

said parade committee member Dawn<br />

Albrecht<br />

Mayor Christie Ward said 20 volunteers<br />

organized the parade that drew many participants–from<br />

a mock jet carrying village<br />

officials to a float from Obetz filled with<br />

council members, first responder vehicles,<br />

kids on decorated bicycles, political candidates,<br />

and county officials.<br />

“This was my first parade and I can’t<br />

believe how well it all came together,” said<br />

Councilwoman Tammy Langley<br />

In addition to honoring Hamilton High<br />

School graduates who recently enlisted in<br />

the military, the ceremony at the park<br />

included recognition of the McCumber family<br />

for their long legacy of military service<br />

dating back to John M. McCumber, Sr.,<br />

who enlisted in August 1862 in the<br />

infantry.<br />

McCumber family members also served<br />

in World War II, in the Ohio Air National<br />

Guard, on active duty in the Air Force, and<br />

at DSCC Columbus.<br />

Carolynn McCumber Park enlisted in<br />

the Air Force in 1988 as an airman and<br />

rose to the rank of lieutenant colonel. She<br />

served as an aircraft mechanic, maintenance<br />

flight commander, and inspector<br />

general and retired after 29 years in the<br />

Air Force and Ohio Air National Guard.<br />

“I am proud of how everyone was able to<br />

come together to get this done. Everything<br />

was beautiful and I love how we continue<br />

to grow each year,” said Council President<br />

Susan Grandstaff.<br />

New this year was a longer parade route<br />

and moving the ceremony to the new<br />

Veterans Park in Lockbourne’s town<br />

square.<br />

“Because we didn’t have a parade last<br />

year due to COVID-19, this was a special<br />

year to get back together,” said Ward.<br />

“This year, we had the largest attendance<br />

and participants in the parade. Many of<br />

the surrounding businesses and nearby<br />

communities also participated. There is a<br />

lot of excitement about the new Veterans<br />

Park, both within the community and<br />

township.”<br />

Honored guests included 121st ARW<br />

Commander Colonel David Johnson,<br />

Franklin County Auditor Michael<br />

Stinziano, Franklin County Engineer<br />

Cornell Robertson, Franklin County<br />

Sheriff Dallas Baldwin and Hamilton<br />

Schools Superintendent Mark Tyler.<br />

“Lockbourne is proud of its military history,<br />

not only because of the many current<br />

or former residents who are veterans, but<br />

also because of its connection with<br />

Rickenbacker, formerly known as<br />

Lockbourne Air Force Base,” said Ward.<br />

CW Labor Day Festival<br />

The Canal Winchester Labor Day Festival, originally scheduled<br />

for Sept. 4, 5, and 6, has been cancelled, according to event<br />

organizers and the city of Canal Winchester.<br />

The event, which was set to celebrate its centennial year in<br />

2020, has been a Labor Day weekend mainstay in the community<br />

since 1920.<br />

In a public statement released May 7, festival organizers<br />

shared their difficult decision, noting the inability to meet Ohio<br />

Department of Health regulations and the lingering effects<br />

COVID-19 has had on the entertainment industry and festival<br />

sponsors.<br />

Marie Gibbons, parade organizer, said, “It is not feasible at this<br />

time to put on our traditional event, which draws families from all<br />

over Central Ohio. The committee instead has been focusing on a<br />

smaller, one-day event for our community that will feature rides,<br />

food vendors, family-friendly activities, entertainment, and a nontraditional<br />

parade.”<br />

The one-day event, Canal Winchester Hometown Day, will be<br />

Sept. 4. Details are pending.<br />

The Canal Winchester Area Historical Society will hold its<br />

annual Ice Cream Social on Sept. 5 from 1-4 p.m. at the Prentiss<br />

School at 10 W. Oak St.<br />

Labor Day Festival organizers recognize the importance of the<br />

annual three-day festival to the community and continue to plan<br />

for the 100th Labor Day weekend celebration in 2022.<br />

Work to begin on Saltzgaber, Toy, and Swisher roads<br />

By Rick Palsgrove<br />

Managing Editor<br />

Long hoped for improvements to Saltzgaber, Toy, and<br />

Swisher roads will begin this summer.<br />

For many years, area residents have been frustrated by<br />

the roadways’ poor condition and the heavy traffic from<br />

nearby commercial warehouses that use these narrow, formerly<br />

rural roads.<br />

The residents want relief from the vehicle and semitruck<br />

traffic they say damages the roads, tears up yards,<br />

knocks over mailboxes, causes noise, generates trash, and<br />

creates congestion.<br />

The three roads fall within several government jurisdictions<br />

including Madison Township, Groveport, Obetz, and<br />

Franklin County.<br />

Groveport City Engineer Steve Farst said the improvements<br />

are combined into a single construction contract to<br />

be managed by the Franklin County Engineer.<br />

Saltzgaber Road reconstruction<br />

According to Farst, Saltzgaber Road will be reconstructed<br />

from its intersection with Groveport Road to its connection<br />

at Toy Road.<br />

“On Saltzgaber Road, the road will be widened to three<br />

lanes and a cul-de-sac (for turn arounds) will be located<br />

about 170 feet south of Saltzgaber’s connection to Toy<br />

Road,” said Farst. “The link between Saltzgaber and Toy<br />

Road will be preserved.”<br />

“The limits of construction include Saltzgaber Road<br />

from Groveport Road to the 90 degree turn at Toy Road,”<br />

said Carla Marable, Franklin County Engineer’s Office<br />

director of communications. “The project includes reconstruction<br />

of Saltzgaber Road to provide a three lane typical<br />

roadway section with a two-way left-turn lane along the<br />

majority of the alignment. The project will also construct<br />

an eastbound left turn lane, an eastbound right turn lane,<br />

and a westbound left turn lane on Groveport Road at its<br />

intersection with Saltzgaber Road. The project will also<br />

improve the intersection of Groveport Road and Saltzgaber<br />

Road.”<br />

Marable said the project was combined and bid together<br />

with the Toy Road and Swisher Road improvements project.<br />

“The contractor’s low bid for the overall project was<br />

$2.26 million,” said Marable. “Funding is provided by<br />

Franklin County Motor Vehicle Registration and Gas User<br />

Fees, the city of Groveport, Madison Township, the Ohio<br />

Public Works Commission, the Franklin County<br />

Transportation Improvement District, and private partners.”<br />

Marable said closure of Toy Road began on <strong>June</strong> 1.<br />

Local access to the residents of Toy Road, Swisher Road,<br />

and Saltzgaber Road will be maintained throughout construction.<br />

Substantial completion is scheduled for fall <strong>2021</strong><br />

with a final completion by spring 2022.<br />

When asked why the reconstruction is necessary,<br />

Marable said, “Saltzgaber Road is an old township road,<br />

currently maintained by Madison Township and the city of<br />

Groveport, that was never expected to handle the volume<br />

and type of traffic it will see with the increased development<br />

in the area. Nearby recent warehouse projects will<br />

increase traffic. This generated the need for the proposed<br />

two-way left-turn lane on Saltzgaber Road and designated<br />

turn lanes on Groveport Road accessing Saltzgaber Road.”<br />

Farst added that the reconstruction is needed because<br />

“the existing Saltzgaber Road is of insufficient condition<br />

both in thickness of pavement and width for<br />

current and anticipated traffic conditions.”<br />

Toy and Swisher roads improvements<br />

“This project provides pavement maintenance<br />

and drainage improvements along Swisher Road<br />

and Toy Road from Centerpoint Parkway to the 90<br />

degree turn at Saltzgaber Road,” said Marable.<br />

“The project will also construct Toy Road with dual<br />

cul-de-sacs east of the intersection of Centerpoint<br />

Parkway.”<br />

Marable reiterated this project was combined<br />

and bid together with the Saltzgaber Road improvements<br />

project. The contractor’s low bid for the overall<br />

project was $2.26 million. Funding is provided<br />

by Franklin County Motor Vehicle Registration and<br />

Gas User Fees, the city of Groveport, Madison<br />

Township, the Ohio Public Works Commission, the<br />

Franklin County Transportation Improvement<br />

District, and private partners.<br />

“The Franklin County Engineer’s Office took<br />

advantage of a private public partnership by combining<br />

funds from the Saltzgaber Developer and<br />

Ohio Public Works Commission,” said Marable.<br />

Closure of Toy Road began on <strong>June</strong> 1. Local<br />

access to the residents of Toy Road, Swisher Road,<br />

and Saltzgaber Road will be maintained throughout<br />

construction. Substantial completion is scheduled<br />

for fall <strong>2021</strong> with a final completion of spring<br />

2022.<br />

Farst noted the pavement condition is degraded<br />

and needs improved<br />

Summer Reading Challenge<br />

Columbus Metropolitan Library will offer an allonline<br />

Summer Reading Challenge through July 31.<br />

Summer Reading Challenge is CML’s signature<br />

program to keep young readers from losing critical literacy<br />

skills during the summer months.<br />

Loss of these skills is often referred to as summer<br />

slide, and places children at a distinct learning disadvantage<br />

once school begins again in August.<br />

“This pandemic has deeply impacted our young<br />

minds and their ability to learn,” said CML Public<br />

Services Director Kathy Shahbodaghi. “Helping them<br />

get back on track starts with books and reading. This<br />

is especially critical during the out-of-school months.”<br />

Due to the ongoing pandemic, this year’s nine-week<br />

program will once again be offered with several modifications<br />

put in place to ensure the community’s health<br />

and safety.<br />

Changes include:<br />

•The program will be online only through columbuslibrary.org/summerreading<br />

and with the free<br />

READsquared app (available on iOS and Android<br />

devices). Customers of all ages can use the app to log<br />

in and track activity just like on CML’s website.<br />

•CML is not currently offering any in-person programs<br />

at its 23 locations. CML will instead offer a calendar<br />

of free virtual events.<br />

•The VolunTeen program, which enables 12 to 17-<br />

year-olds to help with customer sign-ups and programs,<br />

has been canceled.<br />

•CML will mail participants a Game Board with<br />

activities and a free book while supplies last.<br />

Participants will complete reading goals to be entered<br />

into raffle drawings for gift cards and other prizes<br />

along the way. A raffle at the end of the program<br />

includes kids’ bikes, helmets and locks for the 5-11 age<br />

group.<br />

For information, visit www.columbuslibrary.org.<br />

Added Marable, “These portions of Toy Road and<br />

Swisher Road are older residential-type township roadways<br />

that are currently maintained by Madison Township<br />

and the city of Groveport. The continued increase in commuter<br />

and commercial traffic using these roadways has<br />

left portions of the roads in disrepair. The improvement<br />

will repair the roadway so the residents can safely and<br />

efficiently access their homes. The project provides dual<br />

cul-de-sacs east of Centerpoint Parkway that will act as<br />

turnaround locations for commercial traffic. Throughout<br />

construction, further investigation and study of the<br />

impacts of the construction closure of Toy Road by the<br />

Franklin County Engineer’s Office will provide necessary<br />

and critical data to determine if a long term closure of Toy<br />

Road (between the two cul-de-sacs) will be appropriate.”<br />

This idea was for the birds<br />

Years ago, I wanted to keep chickens on<br />

my acre-plus property, but like many good<br />

plans, it was not meant to be after a wise<br />

chicken farmer pointed out amateur mistakes<br />

I was bound to make.<br />

For months I scoured do-it-yourself project<br />

pages for a coop I could handle. Well, I<br />

should say that my daughter and I could<br />

handle because she has a natural ability to<br />

assemble, fix or repair things. She would be<br />

my executive chef in construction and I<br />

would be her construction sous chef.<br />

I showed her various designs from a<br />

structure worthy of a Victorian manor to<br />

something little more than a frame covered<br />

in chicken netting–plain and functional,<br />

but not for me.<br />

Hitting a happy medium, I found a simple,<br />

charming house for hens with an<br />

enclosed white clapboard structure, ramp<br />

and a suitable protected outdoor run.<br />

Nothing extravagant, just manageable.<br />

I researched the care of poultry and<br />

skipped over information on breeding. No<br />

roosters in my henhouse. While I can<br />

appreciate an early morning chicken wakeup<br />

call–I probably get up earlier than a<br />

rooster–I did not want to worry about<br />

weeding out fertilized eggs.<br />

Places<br />

I decided to start<br />

out with a trio of<br />

hens–three seemed<br />

like a manageable<br />

number and I sought<br />

the advice of a farmer<br />

before deciding on<br />

which breed I wanted<br />

to purchase after we<br />

built the coop.<br />

Her first question<br />

after I shared my<br />

plans with her: “What<br />

are you going to do<br />

with the hens when<br />

they stopped producing<br />

eggs?”<br />

Linda<br />

Dillman<br />

Huh? Chickens<br />

stop producing eggs after a few years?<br />

Well, I’ll just get more.<br />

She again asked, “What are you going to<br />

do with the chickens that no longer lay<br />

eggs?” before frankly laying out my<br />

options–build a bigger cage to accommodate<br />

more hens or serve the non-producers<br />

for Sunday dinner to make way for fresh<br />

www.columbusmessenger.com<br />

hens.<br />

What? Kill the chickens after they provided<br />

eggs for my family? No way. I’m sure<br />

they would all have names and how can I<br />

dispose of a creature with a cute name, who<br />

spent her productive life feeding me?<br />

“Well, then you’re going to eventually<br />

end up with a coop full of chickens with<br />

names that no longer lay eggs,” I was told<br />

in response.<br />

It was at that moment I saw in my mind<br />

my beautiful white coop filled with aging<br />

non-productive chickens living out their<br />

lives while my refrigerator was stocked<br />

with store-bought cartons of eggs.<br />

A nice idea, but not the end result I<br />

wanted. So, I threw my design clippings in<br />

the trash and told my daughter the chicken<br />

coop plans that I held close to my heart for<br />

so many years would not happen.<br />

A few days later, for the first time since<br />

we moved into our house, two ducks landed<br />

at the back of our property and wandered<br />

around for the afternoon. I took it as a sign<br />

from Mother Nature that she was giving<br />

me a couple of egg laying creatures to enjoy<br />

for the day since I will never have my own.<br />

The earth is always at equilibrium.<br />

Strong acting saves another “Conjuring” installment<br />

Hollywood has been combing through<br />

the case files of paranormal investigators<br />

Ed and Lorraine Warren for ideas for more<br />

than four decades now, but it wasn’t until<br />

2013 that anyone thought to make a movie<br />

centered around the dynamic demon-fighting<br />

duo of the Northeast.<br />

In “The Conjuring,” the story revolves<br />

around their attempt to uncover the origins<br />

of a haunted farmhouse before it destroys<br />

the sweet family living within, but it<br />

wasn’t the tried-and-true horror trope that<br />

captured the interest of the general public.<br />

Though considered one of the best supernatural<br />

films of the decade, what made<br />

“The Conjuring” such a hit was the chemistry<br />

between the actors Patrick Wilson<br />

and Vera Farmiga and their depiction of<br />

the unwavering faith between their reallife<br />

counterparts as they fought off demons<br />

while battling their own. Not only did their<br />

portrayal add something new to the horrorsphere,<br />

but it also sparked a newfound<br />

interest in the couple (along with newfound<br />

claims of fraud) and kickstarted a multimillion<br />

dollar franchise and extended universe<br />

with solo films and spin-offs where<br />

they play second fiddle to haunted dolls<br />

and other objects.<br />

In their latest venture, “The Conjuring:<br />

The Devil Made Me Do It,” it sees the two<br />

take center stage once again as they try to<br />

prove that a young man accused of murder<br />

only did so at the behest of evil spirits.<br />

The Reel Deal<br />

The film begins in<br />

slick and stylized fashion<br />

as Ed (Wilson) and<br />

Lorraine (Farmiga)<br />

carry out an exorcism<br />

on 8-year-old David<br />

Glatzel (Julian<br />

Hilliard) in early<br />

1980s Connecticut.<br />

With thick fog rolling<br />

through the kitchen<br />

and David doing his<br />

best impression of a<br />

Dedra<br />

Cordle<br />

human pretzel on the dining table to great<br />

sound effect, they try to get the spirit to<br />

leave the boy despite the physical and emotional<br />

toll it is taking on their own bodies.<br />

Try as hard as they might, this demon is<br />

not leaving — until the boyfriend of David’s<br />

sister invites it into his own, that is.<br />

Not believing that he is now host to an<br />

evil entity (Ed collapsed after the exorcism<br />

due to his heart problems and was not able<br />

to explain that he saw the transference),<br />

Arne Cheyenne Johnson (Ruairi O’Connor)<br />

goes about his life none the wiser. But soon<br />

odd things start to happen — a cereal box<br />

falls to the floor, he starts to see visions,<br />

and his once even temper becomes shorter<br />

and shorter.<br />

While helping his girlfriend Debbie<br />

(Sarah Catherine Hook) do odd jobs around<br />

the dog kennel where they work one day,<br />

he “blacks out.” When he finally comes to,<br />

he is covered in blood and realizes that he<br />

has stabbed business owner Bruno Sauls<br />

(Ronnie Gene Blevins) to death.<br />

Upon hearing the news, a newly awakened<br />

Ed and his increasingly clairvoyant<br />

wife Lorraine rush back to the town to try<br />

to uncover how this happened. Unlike the<br />

local law enforcement officials, the prosecuting<br />

attorney and the international<br />

media, they whole-heartedly believe Arne’s<br />

claim that the devil made him do it.<br />

Rather than delve into a straight courtroom<br />

drama with elements of Satanic<br />

Panic, the film retraces the case to the<br />

beginning when Ed and Lorraine first<br />

heard about David’s possession. Through<br />

flashbacks, tight shots of dark and dank<br />

quarters and a jump scare involving a<br />

waterbed, they determine that someone<br />

had placed a powerful curse on him, one<br />

that would have made him kill anyone the<br />

demon commanded. With that part of the<br />

mystery solved, they have to figure out who<br />

placed the curse on him, why, whether it<br />

has truly transferred to Arne and how far<br />

this curse-placer is willing to go in order to<br />

get what they want.<br />

Dr. Bender 5K Classic<br />

This year’s 14th annual Dr. Bender 5K<br />

Classic Race will be conducted as a hybrid<br />

race. Those who wish to participate in person<br />

can do so on the morning of July 17 at<br />

Canal Winchester High School. A virtual<br />

5K event will also be available for those<br />

who are not able or choose not to participate<br />

in the in-person race. The dates to run<br />

the virtual race will be July 15-18. All inperson<br />

registrants may be converted to virtual<br />

if mandated by state or local guidelines<br />

specific to COVID-19 cases prior to<br />

July 17.<br />

A longstanding community 5K run and<br />

walk through the streets of Canal<br />

Winchester, this year's hybrid race format<br />

returns to the tradition of running for a<br />

cause in person, despite the fact that some<br />

may opt for a virtual race that offers social<br />

distancing. The proceeds from registration<br />

and sponsorships with this year’s hybrid<br />

race will directly benefit the boys and girls<br />

cross country teams at Canal Winchester<br />

High School. The alumni team challenge<br />

(high school or college) will again be part of<br />

the 5K for participants that are interested<br />

in putting together a team of four runners<br />

to compete against other alumni teams<br />

within the race. Provide your team member<br />

list at the registration tables the day of<br />

the event. This challenge is for the in-person<br />

race only. There will also be prizes for<br />

the top three overall men’s and women’s<br />

finishers for the in-person race as well as<br />

Do It,” ran a real risk of losing the appeal<br />

that made the latter films so popular —<br />

especially since it is based on a real-life<br />

murder case and not just an alleged haunting.<br />

But, like it or not, true crime is an<br />

increasingly popular medium for theory<br />

and story so in a sense it makes sense that<br />

the creators wanted to pivot to one of Ed<br />

and Lorraine’s most controversial cases.<br />

I’m not certain that will be a lasting<br />

change in this universe, but it does open<br />

the doors to explore more avenues in the<br />

future should they so choose.<br />

If allowed, there will be a post-race raffle<br />

at the high school football field with<br />

some additional prizes. Each participant<br />

receives a raffle ticket. However, if<br />

state/local officials do not allow this by the<br />

day of the race, the raffle prizes will be<br />

drawn on July 19 at 8 p.m. via Facebook<br />

Live at the Dr. Bender 5K Classic page.<br />

These prizes will be delivered to a local<br />

winner and mailed to a non-local winner.<br />

Cotton t-shirts with this year’s race design<br />

are guaranteed to participants who register<br />

for the race by midnight on July 9.<br />

Shirts will be mailed to virtual race participants<br />

(week of July 19) and will be available<br />

on the day of the race for in-person<br />

participants.<br />

Registration cost is $25 for the in-person<br />

or the virtual 5K races. The 1-mile kids<br />

fun run returns this year and costs $10.<br />

SWACO notes trash increase, recycling decrease<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

The Solid Waste Authority’s recent 2020<br />

Community Impact Report is a mirror<br />

reflecting the way COVID-19 hit every<br />

aspect of daily life, such as a massive<br />

increase in trash including cardboard shipping<br />

boxes.<br />

At the same time, communities across<br />

the area–such as Canal Winchester, who<br />

implemented a curbside recycling program<br />

for the first time–are helping to divert<br />

recyclables from the trash stream.<br />

According to the annual report, during<br />

the first months of the pandemic, SWACO<br />

waste hauling partners experienced a 30<br />

percent increase in trash set out for weekly<br />

pick up.<br />

However, recycling haulers did not<br />

experience the same level of increase.<br />

Forty percent of Franklin County’s<br />

waste stream is generated by residents,<br />

families and other households, yet less<br />

than half of the recyclables households<br />

could recycle are captured.<br />

In Franklin County, the most frequently<br />

tossed-out items include food, cardboard,<br />

paper towels and napkins, and magazines<br />

and newspapers, which all could be diverted<br />

from the landfill.<br />

“Many residents don’t know that more<br />

than 75 percent of Franklin County’s landfill<br />

material has the potential to be reused,<br />

recycled or composted, instead of simply<br />

being landfilled, so there’s work to be<br />

done,” according to the SWACO report. “In<br />

response, throughout the year, the team at<br />

SWACO worked with dozens of communities<br />

and businesses to improve recycling<br />

programs.”<br />

As a result of Canal Winchester’s decision<br />

to go with a recycling program through<br />

their waste hauler, every city in Franklin<br />

County now offers residents curbside recycle.<br />

“While we may be the last to do so, we<br />

did it at a time when we could get waste<br />

and curbside recycling at a cost of less than<br />

we were paying for just waste pickup<br />

alone,” said Canal Winchester Mayor Mike<br />

Ebert.<br />

Hamilton Township offers weekly curbside<br />

recycling as part of their townshipwide<br />

trash hauling contract.<br />

SWACO is also working on reducing<br />

food waste as one of the best opportunities<br />

to increase redirection of material away<br />

from the county landfill and reach the 75<br />

percent diversion goal.<br />

Along with members of the Central Ohio<br />

Food Waste initiative, in 2020, SWACO<br />

spent the year working on food waste solutions<br />

identified in an initiative action plan,<br />

such as resources for schools and a new<br />

consumer education campaign, as well as<br />

supporting local restaurants.<br />

“While many schools, restaurants and<br />

businesses were closed last year as a result<br />

of the pandemic, SWACO spent the year<br />

providing guidance for more sustainable<br />

ways to function after re-openings,” according<br />

to the SWACO report, “and offering<br />

businesses information on ow to implement<br />

best practices for reducing waste and<br />

improving recycling and composting.”<br />

SWACO gets grant to help reduce food waste<br />

The Solid Waste Authority of Central<br />

Ohio is one of three organizations that<br />

received a grant from the U.S.<br />

Environmental Protection Agency to support<br />

sustainable materials management<br />

projects in Ohio.<br />

Sustainable materials management,<br />

according to the U.S. EPA, is a systematic<br />

approach to use and reuse materials<br />

through a product’s entire life cycle to minimize<br />

environmental impacts, conserve<br />

resources and reduce costs.<br />

The U.S. EPA awarded a $60,000 grant<br />

to SWACO in support of its work to reduce<br />

food waste in the Columbus region.<br />

Specifically, the grant will be used to measure<br />

the baseline of food waste behaviors<br />

and outcomes in a central Ohio community<br />

and subsequently explore how the campaign<br />

changes behaviors to reduce food<br />

waste as well as the effectiveness of “Save<br />

More Than Food,” an awareness campaign<br />

to educate consumers about food waste and<br />

how to prevent it. SWACO launched the<br />

campaign in September in partnership<br />

with the 150 plus organizations and businesses<br />

in central Ohio that make up the<br />

Central Ohio Food Waste Initiative.<br />

The EPA grant is the second national<br />

recognition SWACO has received for its<br />

work surrounding food waste diversion. In<br />

October, the National Recycling Coalition<br />

named SWACO as the “Outstanding<br />

Recycling Organization for 2020” for outstanding<br />

growth of programs and impacts<br />

pertaining to food waste diversion.<br />

“We believe the “Save More Than Food”<br />

campaign will help people understand the<br />

severity of the food waste problem in central<br />

Ohio and encourage them to reduce<br />

food waste in their own homes,” said Ty<br />

Marsh, SWACO’s executive director. “But<br />

the grant from the U.S. EPA will let us<br />

know for certain what type of impact the<br />

campaign has had.”<br />

SWACO is partnering with The Ohio<br />

State University and the city of Upper<br />

Arlington on this grant project.<br />

OSU’s research team conducted resident<br />

surveys to find out if the campaign had an<br />

impact on residents’ views and behaviors<br />

regarding food waste. The team will also<br />

conduct a waste audit, where they’ll examine<br />

random samples of residential waste<br />

and separate it into categories to determine<br />

how much of it is food. OSU plans to compile<br />

and share the results of the surveys<br />

and waste audit by November, creating a<br />

peer-reviewed manuscript for academic use<br />

and likely hosting webinars aimed at the<br />

consumer audience.<br />

“We are excited for this partnership. It<br />

will allow us to understand how efforts in<br />

central Ohio can inform campaigns around<br />

the country, and improve the sustainability<br />

of our food system,” said Professor Brian<br />

Roe, OSU research lead.<br />

Residents can learn more about the<br />

grant and food waste diversion at<br />

Plastics recycling expanded<br />

The Solid Waste Authority of Central<br />

Ohio and its partners at Rumpke Waste<br />

and Recycling announced they are expanding<br />

their plastics recycling program to<br />

include polypropylene tubs and yogurt containers.<br />

In recent years, central Ohio’s residential<br />

plastics recycling program has only<br />

allowed for the recycling of plastic bottles<br />

and jugs which feature a neck smaller than<br />

their base. This recent announcement<br />

expands the existing recycling program to<br />

include a wide variety of plastic tubs such<br />

as butter, cottage cheese, and sour cream<br />

tubs, fruit, pudding, and applesauce cups<br />

and all yogurt containers.<br />

These items need to be empty and clean<br />

before being they’re put in the recycling<br />

cart. Lids and labels can be left on but the<br />

foil tops that sometimes come on yogurt<br />

containers should be removed and not<br />

recycled.<br />

Like most businesses, recycling is commodities-based.<br />

Taking care to recycle correctly<br />

is an important act we can each<br />

make to support the businesses which<br />

make it possible for us to recycle our<br />

unwanted materials. In order to expand<br />

the plastics recycling program, Rumpke<br />

has secured several long-term buyers and<br />

users of recycled plastics. In addition to<br />

securing end users, Rumpke is also investing<br />

in new equipment and the necessary<br />

workforce to separate and sort these materials<br />

at its Material Recovery Facilities<br />

(MRF).<br />

Artificial, or prosthetic, teeth are<br />

either acrylic plastic or baked<br />

porcelain. They are available in a<br />

tremendous variety of sizes, shapes<br />

and colors and, just like a face, no<br />

two teeth are exactly identical.<br />

Although your dentist is usually a<br />

skilled evaluator of which tooth<br />

form and color to use, his choice<br />

should certainly reflect your views.<br />

A word of caution. Don’t opt for<br />

teeth that are too perfect or too<br />

white. They won’t look natural and<br />

may dominate a smile which looks<br />

and is “false.” Follow your dentist’s<br />

advice and go with the tooth form<br />

and color that with restore as well<br />

as enhance.<br />

The best prosthetic teeth have<br />

slight irregularities in shape and<br />

alignment, and subtle gradation in<br />

color, just as natural teeth do.<br />

Porcelain teeth are stronger, and<br />

more resistant to wear and staining<br />

than acrylic teeth. Acrylic plastic,<br />

however, is more resilient, and<br />

doesn’t transmit as much chewing<br />

pressure to the underlying gum<br />

and bone. It is also less prone to<br />

fracture.<br />

Rugged rugby<br />

<strong>Messenger</strong> photo by Pat Donahue<br />

Fortress Obetz played host <strong>June</strong> 5 to the Rugby Ohio High<br />

School State Championships. The championships crowned<br />

champions in seven divisions for both boys and girls with<br />

the Super Elite D1 Boys Final seeing St. Ignatius defeating<br />

Moeller 22-8. Rugby Ohio President Chris Northup said that<br />

Fortress Obetz will always be his choice for the state tournament<br />

because it is built for rugby and has a rugby turf that<br />

makes it the best place to play.<br />

Lockbourne Air Force Base<br />

According to “Crossroads of Liberty, a<br />

Pictorial Tribute to<br />

Lockbourne/Rickenbacker AFB-ANGB-<br />

IAP,” written by Robert M. Stroup II and<br />

advised by military historian Donald C.<br />

Porter, before Pearl Harbor was attacked<br />

in 1941, plans were already underway to<br />

construct an airfield near the village of<br />

Lockbourne.<br />

A site was surveyed on Oct. 23, 1941<br />

that consisted of over 1,500 acres.<br />

“On Jan. 2, 1942, authorization was<br />

received to proceed with construction of<br />

base facilities. On January 17, a directive<br />

was issued approving the acquisition of 33<br />

parcels of land of different sizes and various<br />

ownerships, mostly in the form of<br />

farmland. While some owners were reluctant<br />

to part with ground, most recognized<br />

that the nation was at war and this was a<br />

necessary commitment. Due to the<br />

urgency of war, land owners were given<br />

just 30 days to relocate, a task made even<br />

more difficult by winter weather,” wrote<br />

Stroup in “Crossroads of Liberty.”<br />

Construction began on facilities to first<br />

accommodate training for glider pilots,<br />

then B-17 pilots. Following the end of the<br />

war, Lockbourne’s mission shifted to support<br />

of the fledgling Air Force, National<br />

Guard and Reserve.<br />

The Tuskegee Airmen were an important<br />

part of the base’s history in the late<br />

1940s, as well as the Strategic Air<br />

Command in later years. Lockbourne<br />

nearly doubled in size in the 1950s due to<br />

the Korean War, necessitating another<br />

acquisition of local land.<br />

In 1974, Lockbourne was renamed<br />

Rickenbacker Air Force Base in honor of<br />

Eddie Rickenbacker. Five years later, following<br />

re-alignment recommendations at<br />

the federal level, the base started closing<br />

down after SAC operations were transferred<br />

elsewhere. It officially closed in<br />

1994, albeit with an active Ohio National<br />

Guard and Naval Reserve presence still to<br />

this day, and operations converted to commercial<br />

transportation.<br />

Columbus Library offers “Culture Passes”<br />

Columbus Metropolitan Library offers<br />

its cardholders free admission to select central<br />

Ohio cultural institutions.<br />

The Culture Pass Program enables CML<br />

customers to borrow passes just as they<br />

would a book - using their library card.<br />

This onetime pass, which must be checked<br />

out in person, grants customers limited<br />

free access to institutions that would otherwise<br />

charge admission fees.<br />

CML piloted the program in 2018, offering<br />

culture passes to Franklin Park<br />

Conservatory and the Wexner Center for<br />

the Arts. Since then, CML has worked to<br />

expand the number of participating organizations.<br />

Newly added this month was the<br />

Columbus Zoo and Aquarium.<br />

“With the help of our community partners,<br />

we’re working to expose all central<br />

Ohioans to the many renowned cultural<br />

gems we are fortunate to have at our<br />

doorstep,” said CML Chief Community<br />

Engagement Officer Donna Zuiderweg. “As<br />

a public library, our role is to ensure equal<br />

access to all, and that goes well beyond<br />

Ohio Flags of Honor<br />

The Ohio Flags of Honor Traveling<br />

Memorial honors the men and women of<br />

Ohio who have given their lives in service<br />

to their country. Specifically, those fallen<br />

in the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and the<br />

war on terrorism since Sept. 11, 2001<br />

The Ohio Flags of Honor Traveling<br />

Memorial event will be held July 2-5. The<br />

opening ceremony is July 3 at 2 p.m. and<br />

the closing ceremony is July 5 at 11:50 a.m.<br />

Bertha is a lovely lady.<br />

She’s 7 years old, she is<br />

good with kids, good<br />

with dogs, and good<br />

with cats. She loves<br />

people. All she wants to<br />

do is wave hello to<br />

everyone she meets. If<br />

you’ve been in search<br />

of a new 72-pound best friend, then what are<br />

you waiting for? Come meet Bertha. She is up<br />

for adoption at the Franklin County Dog<br />

Shelter.<br />

FYI: www.franklincountydogs.com<br />

Clever is a bit of a wallflower.<br />

She is a 6-yearold<br />

pit bull mix. This shy<br />

yet charming girl is<br />

searching for a patient<br />

owner with a relaxed<br />

lifestyle. Clever could<br />

use gentle guidance to<br />

help her out of her<br />

shell. Treat her sweet and kind and she will<br />

blossom. Adopt her from the Franklin County<br />

Dog Shelter.<br />

Youth work program<br />

High school students will have the<br />

chance to gain first-hand work experience<br />

and earn up to $1,300 this summer thanks<br />

to a $1.4 million investment from Franklin<br />

County.<br />

The Franklin County Board of<br />

Commissioners approved an agreement<br />

between the Department of Job and Family<br />

Services and three local nonprofits to provide<br />

paid work readiness training through<br />

the summer Ready 2 Earn program.<br />

This partnership brings together<br />

Franklin County JFS, the Columbus<br />

Urban League, Godman Guild Association<br />

and TECH CORPS Ohio to offer a combination<br />

of project-based learning and traditional<br />

work opportunities for 14- to 18-<br />

year-olds this summer.<br />

“Programs like Ready 2 Earn are generational<br />

investments,” said Deputy County<br />

Administrator Joy Bivens, who oversees<br />

the commissioners’ health and human<br />

services agencies. “It’s not just about providing<br />

an opportunity for young people to<br />

earn money over one summer. It’s about<br />

equipping them to excel in college or their<br />

career. This is one way we begin to close<br />

the racial wealth gap and move families up<br />

the economic ladder.”<br />

Ready 2 Earn partners will provide a<br />

blend of in-person work readiness training<br />

and interactive webinars. Youth will have<br />

the chance to gain exposure to in-demand<br />

career fields ranging from coding, cybersecurity<br />

and robotics to health care and early<br />

childhood education. Ready 2 Earn partners<br />

will also offer a broad array of work<br />

placements, from the Huntington Bank to<br />

the Furniture Bank of Central Ohio, to Top<br />

Golf or the Columbus Museum of Art.<br />

All participating students — regardless<br />

of whether they are in the project-based<br />

learning track or more traditional work<br />

placement track — will receive training covering<br />

essential workplace behaviors such<br />

as professionalism, teamwork and critical<br />

thinking, along with resume writing tips<br />

and interview etiquette. Participants will<br />

receive a $1,000 stipend with the chance to<br />

earn an additional $300 in incentives for<br />

hitting program-specific targets.<br />

Ready 2 Earn is just part of summer<br />

programming for youth throughout<br />

Franklin County that the commissioners<br />

will be funding this year. The program also<br />

supports the commissioners’ Rise Together<br />

Blueprint To Reduce Poverty in Franklin<br />

County, which calls for providing “comprehensive<br />

career readiness support for students<br />

with exposure to work and integrated<br />

skill-based learning opportunities.”<br />

Project Taillight<br />

Columbus City Attorney Zach Klein<br />

announced an innovative public safety and<br />

crime prevention program being piloted by<br />

the City Attorney’s Office and the Franklin<br />

County Commissioners, in partnership<br />

with Columbus State Community College,<br />

which aims to help Columbus residents by<br />

providing repair services for broken or<br />

burned-out safety lights on their vehicle.<br />

The program, Project Taillight, seeks to<br />

improve community safety by connecting<br />

low-income residents with proactive headlight,<br />

taillight, license plate light, and/or<br />

turn signal repair services for free.<br />

“We know that non-violent crime is<br />

often linked to poverty and lack of economic<br />

opportunity, and the City Attorney’s<br />

Office remains committed to finding creative<br />

ways to reduce these avoidable interactions<br />

between neighbors and law enforcement,”<br />

said Columbus City Attorney Zach<br />

Klein. “Our hope is that this program will<br />

help keep our neighbors safe and reduce<br />

traffic violations for small issues like a broken<br />

taillight or turn signal, giving police<br />

officers even more time to focus on more<br />

urgent, violent crime in our community.”<br />

The vehicle repairs are performed by<br />

students enrolled in Columbus State<br />

Community College’s automotive technology<br />

program. Over the past few months, the<br />

pilot program has held soft-launch events<br />

as partners work through operational<br />

logistics of onsite repairs at the college and<br />

processes for verifying eligibility and identifying<br />

and ordering parts for repairs.<br />

“Part of the mission of Columbus State<br />

is to serve the community,” said Ian<br />

Andrews, assistant professor of engineering<br />

and transportation technologies. “This<br />

program, which assists needs-based car<br />

owners with safety-related repairs, is a<br />

modest way we can give back that appears<br />

to have big impact for the folks coming<br />

through the program.”<br />

The City Attorney’s Office and Franklin<br />

County Commissioners are working<br />

through community organizations and<br />

neighborhood groups to promote Project<br />

Taillight, secure participants, verify eligibility<br />

and schedule repairs with Columbus<br />

State’s program. Franklin County residents<br />

in households with annual incomes<br />

at or below 200 percent of the federal<br />

poverty level are eligible to participate in<br />

this program.<br />

“Research shows there is an everincreasing<br />

rise in residents facing financial<br />

challenges, these challenges are exasperated<br />

even further when our low-income<br />

neighbors are disproportionality impacted<br />

by non-moving traffic violations while driving<br />

to places like school or work,” said<br />

Franklin County Commissioner John<br />

O’Grady. “The Project Taillight pilot program<br />

not only improves safety on our roads<br />

but lifts-up those marginalized community<br />

members that are negatively impacted by<br />

these infractions and the criminal justice<br />

system. Connecting those in need with free<br />

lighting system repairs while providing<br />

Columbus State Community College students<br />

teaching and learning opportunities<br />

is yet another win-win way Franklin<br />

County stays committed to promoting<br />

racial equity, inclusion and diversity and<br />

eliminating racial disparities.”<br />

As a pilot program, Project Taillight is<br />

currently scheduled to run through the end<br />

of <strong>2021</strong>. The $50,000 budget comes from<br />

the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of<br />

Justice Programs, Bureau of Justice<br />

Assistance, Edward Byrne Memorial<br />

Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) sub-award<br />

from Franklin County Board of<br />

Commissioners’ Office of Justice Policy and<br />

Programs, and a $25,000 contribution from<br />

the Columbus Department of Public Safety<br />

general fund.<br />

To participate in the Project Taillight<br />

program, residents must be pre-registered<br />

through the Columbus City Attorney’s<br />

Office following the eligibility screening.<br />

Dog license extension<br />

Franklin County Auditor Michael<br />

Stinziano announced an extension of the<br />

dog licensing deadline. The new deadline,<br />

based on COVID-19 relief passed by the<br />

General Assembly, is July 1. This exten-<br />

www.columbusmessenger.com<br />

sion will allow dog owners more time to<br />

purchase or renew a license without a<br />

penalty.<br />

“Your auditor’s office wants to ensure<br />

that everyone can get their dog license free<br />

of penalty,” Stinziano said. “Licensing your<br />

dog is required by the state of Ohio, and I<br />

want to make dog licensing easy and accessible<br />

for all Franklin County residents<br />

throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. One<br />

goal since I took office as your Franklin<br />

County Auditor has been to increase the<br />

rate of licensed dogs and encourage responsible<br />

pet ownership.”<br />

The 2020 licensing season saw 99,795<br />

licensed dogs in Franklin County.<br />

The cost to license a spayed or neutered<br />

dog is $18 for one year, $54 for three years,<br />

or $180 for a permanent license. For a nonspayed<br />

or neutered dog, the cost is $35 for<br />

one year, $105 for three years, or $350 for<br />

a permanent license.<br />

Dog licensing ensures that any lost dog<br />

is returned quickly to their owners. Most<br />

funds generated from dog licensing support<br />

the Franklin County Dog Shelter and<br />

Adoption Center.<br />

Dog licenses can be purchased online at<br />

doglicense.franklincountyohio.gov.<br />
