CW eliminates day<br />

passes at its pool<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

A few bad apples are spoiling swimming pool privileges for area<br />

residents after <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> followed the city of Groveport’s<br />

decision to limit access and no longer offer day passes for the <strong>Canal</strong><br />

<strong>Winchester</strong> pool.<br />

“As you are aware, we have had some issues this year with some<br />

unruly behavior. Some of this behavior has escalated to the point<br />

where the sheriff’s department was called,” said <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong><br />

Public Service Director Matt Peoples.<br />

On <strong>July</strong> 3, after a <strong>July</strong> 1 incident, the city of <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong><br />

limited pool access to seasonal pass holders only and their guests<br />

and is working with Columbus Pool Management, their managers,<br />

and guards to help them handle situations when they arise.<br />

A lifeguard at the Groveport outdoor pool was allegedly assaulted<br />

by a group of day-pass visitors on June 30 and on <strong>July</strong> 2,<br />

Groveport City Council voted to restrict access to only season pass<br />

holders.<br />

When asked how long the current city order is in place, <strong>Canal</strong><br />

<strong>Winchester</strong> Mayor Mike Ebert told Councilwoman Jill Amos until<br />

the city is told differently.<br />

“We had to do something and we had to do it quick,” said Ebert.<br />

Peoples said by eliminating day passes for the time being, it gives<br />

the pool a measure of control in knowing who is in the area. He said<br />

cameras were installed at the pool a few years ago, but the city is<br />

looking to install more.<br />

“We have reiterated, we will not tolerate this type of conduct and<br />

have instructed them to implement bans for those who are kicked<br />

out of the pool for unruly behavior,” said Peoples. “We want to empower<br />

them to control these types of situations and feel providing<br />

them with the authority and additional tools will help them deal<br />

with disruptive patrons.”<br />

According to Peoples, if there is trouble at the pool, a lifeguard<br />

notifies a manager who will address the situation and remove the<br />

person or people causing the problem. If the manager is unable to<br />

control the situation, they are told to call law enforcement immediately.<br />

Tim Bowman said he was at the pool on <strong>July</strong> 1 and witnessed an<br />

incident firsthand.<br />

On June 22, the Madison Township<br />

trustees unanimously passed a resolution<br />

to solidify the township police department’s<br />

commitment to transparency.<br />

The resolution states that body-worn<br />

and dashboard camera footage will be accessible<br />

by the public<br />

within 24 hours of an<br />

incident occurring, or<br />

as soon as practicable.<br />

Trustee Chairman<br />

John Pritchard<br />

said, “While leading<br />

the central Ohio area in the advancements<br />

of body-worn and<br />

dashboard camera utilization, it is<br />

crucial that we maintain an evolving<br />

commitment to transparency,<br />

including justifiable scrutiny<br />

when critical incidents occur. This<br />

resolution puts our dedication to<br />

trust-building with the community<br />

and police department into<br />

writing, to last in perpetuity.”<br />

Added Trustee Vice-Chairman<br />

Michele Reynolds, “In today’s climate,<br />

accountability in public<br />

service is critically important.<br />

While we stand behind our officers<br />

and support them fully, this<br />

Critical Incident policy is a commitment<br />

to the public for accountability<br />

and transparency in the<br />

Madison Township Police Department.”<br />

Trustee Ed Dildine said, “Passing<br />

this resolution shows how serious Madison Township<br />

is about making sure information is available to<br />

residents.”<br />

“The Madison Township Police Department is proud<br />

to continue our legacy of transparency in law enforcement,”<br />

said Madison Township Police Chief Gary York.<br />

“A township resolution effectively acts as law, and will<br />

stand the test of time despite the individual perspectives<br />

of future chiefs, boards, or administrators.”

Independence Day weekend in Groveport featured the Ohio<br />

Flags of Honor Traveling Memorial, which honors the men and<br />

women of Ohio who gave their lives in service to their country.<br />

Specifically, those fallen in the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and<br />

the war on terrorism since Sept. 11, 2001. The Ohio Flags of<br />

Honor Traveling Memorial was held <strong>July</strong> 2-5 in a field at<br />

Madison Christian Church, 3565 Bixby Road, Groveport.<br />

Pictured here is Jay Montgomery, who was one of many volunteers<br />

who helped set up the flag display. The field was filled<br />

with 960 flags that included American flags, state flags, and<br />

service flags. Of those, 302 honor those who gave their lives.<br />

The Ohio Flags of Honor set up in a field at Madison Christian<br />

School.<br />

Gino Zimmer is shown here driving in<br />

stakes that supported the flags.<br />

“Driving in the stakes takes love,” said<br />

Zimmer. “It’s important they are perfectly<br />

straight.” Zimmer started Ohio Flags<br />

of Honor in 2005 in memory of his son,<br />

Nicholaus Zimmer, a U.S. Army SPC<br />

who was killed in action in Iraq in 2005.<br />

“He’s here with us spiritually,” said<br />

Zimmer. The event at Madison<br />

Christian is the last Ohio Flags of<br />

Honor, according to Zimmer. “It’s physically<br />

demanding to set up,” said<br />

Zimmer. “We do it with 100 percent volunteers.<br />

We’re going to move on now<br />

and support the military in different<br />

ways.”

Troubled waters: changes at Groveport pool after lifeguard attacked<br />

By Rick Palsgrove<br />

Managing Editor<br />

New restrictions are now in place at the Groveport<br />

Aquatic Center after recent incidents at the popular swimming<br />

pool.<br />

Lifeguard assaulted<br />

On June 30 around 6:50 p.m., a group of juveniles<br />

allegedly assaulted one of the pool’s lifeguards on the pool<br />

deck, according to the Groveport Police.<br />

“One of the lifeguards tried to get a group of juveniles to<br />

exit the pool during ‘adult swim,’” said Groveport Police Lt.<br />

Josh Short. “After being verbally insulted, the lifeguard<br />

warned them that they would be made to leave the pool<br />

and was then attacked by one and then several of the girls<br />

in the group. A female patron attempted to help the lifeguard<br />

and pushed one of the attackers away but was then<br />

attacked by all of the same girls. All suspects fled the park<br />

prior to an officer arrival.”<br />

Four suspects were identified and Groveport Law<br />

Director Kevin Shannon said charges are expected to be<br />

filed against them.<br />

Groveport Police Chief Casey Adams said Groveport<br />

Police Detective Josh Gilbert worked 16 hours to investigate<br />

and locate the suspects. Adams said the suspects, who<br />

are all under age 18, are from Columbus. He said the suspects<br />

could be charged with disorderly conduct, assault, or<br />

aggravated criminal trespassing. He said the suspects are<br />

cooperating.<br />

Short said both the lifeguard and female patron<br />

received minor cuts, bumps, and bruises and declined any<br />

medical attention from medics.<br />

“I honestly cannot give any logical reason for why the<br />

lifeguard was assaulted,” said Short. “She did nothing outside<br />

of normal pool policy and was attempting to have<br />

these girls follow clearly established and posted rules.”<br />

Short said the Aquatic Center adult supervisors on duty<br />

were working somewhere at the facility when the incident<br />

began.<br />

“I know from first hand observation that their supervisors<br />

are always moving around between the pool areas and<br />

Fighting the biting mosquitoes<br />

According to Franklin County Public<br />

Health, eliminating mosquito habitats<br />

around your home can go a long way to<br />

reduce the mosquito population.<br />

Mosquitoes require standing water for<br />

their young to hatch and develop; only a few<br />

tablespoons of water is all it takes. Once<br />

eggs are laid, a new generation of mosquitoes<br />

can hatch, grow and emerge from the<br />

water as adults in as little as one week.<br />

Here is a checklist of overlooked mosquito<br />

habitats around the home:<br />

•Tires, buckets, cans, bottles and plastic<br />

containers<br />

•Bird baths<br />

•Wading or kiddie pools<br />

•Pools and hot tubs<br />

•Pool covers that hold water<br />

•Boats, boat covers and tarps<br />

•Pet food containers and water dishes<br />

•Clogged gutters and downspouts<br />

•Leaky outside faucets<br />

•Rain barrels that are not properly<br />

screened or treated<br />

•Low areas that form puddles<br />

•Planters and pots, including saucers<br />

and catch trays<br />

•Trash cans<br />

•Mature trees that have developed<br />

the building constantly monitoring what is going on and<br />

helping out and addressing problems,” said Short.<br />

In addition to the group of juveniles’ assault on the lifeguard,<br />

Shannon said an intoxicated male also recently<br />

allegedly assaulted a lifeguard by pushing the lifeguard<br />

into the pool. The suspect could be charged with disorderly<br />

conduct, criminal trespassing, or assault.<br />

Short said he can only speculate as to why problems<br />

at the pool are arising.<br />

“With all of these calls to the pool this season<br />

there is clearly a lack of respect toward others and<br />

a disdain of any type of authority exhibited by the<br />

offending patrons. It’s repulsive when folks think<br />

rules do not apply to them and escalate their churlish<br />

behavior into physical violence,” said Short.<br />

“Since the opening of this pool season we have regularly<br />

had an officer(s) present for a while as the<br />

gates are opened and guests are coming in. We also<br />

have very regular patrols throughout the day<br />

through the park lot and on foot in the pool area.”<br />

The city takes action<br />

In light of the recent serious incidents at the<br />

pool, Groveport City Council enacted the following<br />

changes at the outdoor Aquatic Center effective<br />

<strong>July</strong> 2:<br />

•Admission to the pool is limited to individuals<br />

and/or families who possess a resident or non-resident<br />

seasonal pass. Day passes are eliminated.<br />

•The minimum age of individuals permitted in<br />

the facility without a parent or legal guardian is 14.<br />

Previously it was age 10.<br />

•Security cameras will be installed in the breezeway<br />

of the facility.<br />

•A police officer will be assigned to the pool during<br />

specific times mandated<br />

by the police chief after consultation<br />

with the mayor.<br />

City officials said these<br />

changes are subject to ongoing<br />

review and can be<br />

holes that hold water — fill the voids with<br />

sand<br />

•Anything that has the potential to hold<br />

even small amounts of water<br />

Mosquitoes are attracted to anything<br />

they can get a blood meal from. Some mosquitoes,<br />

including the ones that carry West<br />

Nile virus, will readily enter homes when<br />

screens are damaged or missing. Avoid<br />

being a mosquito meal by taking these precautions.<br />

•Avoid being outdoors at dawn and<br />

dusk when mosquitoes are most active.<br />

Some more aggressive mosquitoes are<br />

active in the daytime too.<br />

•Wear light colors, long sleeves, long<br />

pants, and socks when spending time outside<br />

in mosquito-infested areas;<br />

•Make sure door and window screens<br />

are tight fitting and free of holes;<br />

•Use an EPA registered insect repellent<br />

when outside;<br />

•When camping or spending time outdoors,<br />

consider Permethrin treated bednets,<br />

tents, or clothing;<br />

•Avoid perfume, colognes, or other<br />

heavy scents that may attract mosquitoes.<br />

revised in the future.<br />

“It’s a good plan to improve safety at the pool,” said<br />

Groveport City Administrator B.J. King. “By limiting it to<br />

season pass holders we will know who is coming and<br />

going.”<br />

The few spoil it for the many<br />

This is to all those who engage in an<br />

action so appalling that it creates changes<br />

that also adversely affect people who abide<br />

by the rules.<br />

Recently, the bad behavior of teenagers<br />

in both Groveport and <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong><br />

resulted in public swimming pools eliminating<br />

the purchase of day passes to cool<br />

down in the midst of a hot summer day.<br />

Those who endangered workers and<br />

people minding their own business prompted<br />

swift consequences. And rightly so.<br />

But (to paraphrase a wise Vulcan), the<br />

actions of the few outweighed the pleasures<br />

of the many. You (the few), through your<br />

actions, took away the pleasure of the<br />

many who followed the rules.<br />

Gone are impromptu excursions to the<br />

local pool in both towns. Gone are cooling<br />

waters for people who cannot afford a season<br />

pass, but manage to scrape enough<br />

together to go a few times during the summer.<br />

Your choice or lack of impulse control<br />

when asked to follow the rules impacts people<br />

far from your social circle.<br />

Sometimes, consequences last only for a<br />

summer. Sometimes, they last for years.<br />

When I was in high school, an out of<br />

state senior trip was the much-anticipated<br />

end to a 12-year career as a student. For<br />

years, classes planned, cajoled parents to<br />

sign permission slips, and raised funds for<br />

months to hop on a bus and “Get Outta<br />

Dodge.”<br />

But, thanks to the thoughtless acts of a<br />

small handful of seniors in the previous<br />

class at my high school, not unlike the<br />

actions of the handful of kids at the pools<br />

this summer, my class was penalized with<br />

the cancelling of our senior trip.<br />

“I’m sorry,” said our principal when lowering<br />

the boom, “but the school board is not<br />

allowing the senior class this year to go out<br />

of state due to the actions of last year’s<br />

class trip. This is not up for discussion.<br />

Period.”<br />

What? How could they do that to us? We<br />

didn’t do anything!<br />

People who were no longer in school,<br />

who were already out in the world beyond<br />

the brick walls and control of administrators<br />

and teachers<br />

caused the innocent to<br />

suffer the consequences<br />

and set a<br />

precedent for years to<br />

come.<br />

Sound familiar?<br />

Same story, similar<br />

players, albeit nearly<br />

half a century ago.<br />

‘Fear Street’ a fun throwback slasher<br />

In 2015, the hallowed ground that was<br />

built by the deep well of nostalgia shook as<br />

xennials and millennials learned of plans<br />

to develop a series of films based on R.L.<br />

Stine’s beloved “Fear Street” books.<br />

‘Would they be adapting the cheerleader<br />

series first?’ they wondered. ‘Or perhaps<br />

they would go to the start of the first horror<br />

and then build the universe from there?’<br />

It didn’t matter so much, they collectively<br />

agreed, because they had been teased of<br />

big screen and small screen adaptations for<br />

decades. Now, they could finally see this<br />

strange world brought to life thanks to the<br />

partnership between Chernin<br />

Entertainment and 20th Century Fox.<br />

In the years that followed, a team of<br />

writers and directors who were making<br />

waves in the independent horror genre<br />

were brought on board, and a cast of promising<br />

teen actors combined with veteran<br />

character actors inked deals to animate (or<br />

reanimate, in many cases) characters of<br />

yore.<br />

As the development progressed, news<br />

started to trickle out that the writing team<br />

(Phil Graziadei, Leigh Janiak, and Kyle<br />

Killen) would not be doing any straight<br />

adaptations of Stine’s popular trilogies:<br />

Instead, they would create a new world<br />

loosely based on the “Fear Street” series<br />

that would serve as both a tribute to the<br />

collection and a homage to the slasher<br />

films of that era.<br />

Though the shaking lessened, the interest<br />

was still high.<br />

Then, in 2020, just as the release dates<br />

for the first of the three movies was slated<br />

for release, the pandemic shuttered movie<br />

theaters and put planned distributions on<br />

hold. Not wanting to see their trilogy of terror<br />

shelved for the foreseeable future,<br />

Chernin Entertainment pulled its distribution<br />

and inked a deal with Netflix.<br />

Several weeks ago, Netflix started to<br />

unveil snippets of the “Fear Street” movies<br />

and the ground started making a little<br />

more noise as the teasers began to generate<br />

buzz. Not only did these films — which<br />

take place during three specific years —<br />

look decent, but they were also going to be<br />

released over the span of three weeks in<br />

<strong>July</strong>. A strange move perhaps, especially<br />

coming from a binge-friendly service, but<br />

one that made sense given their commitment<br />

to releasing a new film each week for<br />

<strong>2021</strong>.<br />

On <strong>July</strong> 9, “Fear Street Part I: 1994”<br />

made its debut on the streaming platform.<br />

And while it is definitely a decent film that<br />

is true to the spirit of the books and all of<br />

the entertainment that was released during<br />

that time, it is weighed down by the<br />

fact that it serves primarily as a set up for<br />

the rest of the trilogy.<br />

As most of its stakes are lowered as it<br />

serves in this capacity, “Fear Street Part I:<br />

1994” often comes across as more of an<br />

overlong pilot in a limited television series<br />

rather than the first installment of an epic<br />

thriller with a trail of terror that spans<br />

centuries. It tries to both establish the current<br />

timeframe while harkening back to<br />

others, but it often gets bogged down as it<br />

teases its succeeding films. It makes for a<br />

frustrating view, but one with good intentions<br />

at heart.<br />

It begins where all of the action took<br />

The Reel Deal<br />

place during this time —<br />

at a mall. Teenaged<br />

Heather (Maya Hawke)<br />

is finishing her shift at<br />

B. Dalton bookstore<br />

when she begins to<br />

experience an escalation<br />

of odd events.<br />

First, she hears scuttling<br />

noises in the<br />

silence, and then horror<br />

books begin to fly<br />

off the shelves.<br />

Dedra<br />

Cordle<br />

Suitably creeped, she rushes to the neon-lit<br />

store where her friend works for safety, but<br />

instead finds a pool of blood and then later<br />

her demise from a Skull Faced figure who<br />

wears the face of a recently deceased<br />

friend.<br />

In any other town, this murder would<br />

have been given plenty of attention from<br />

the media, the local police and the school<br />

where she was a student. But this is<br />

Shadyside, Ohio, the “Murder Capital of<br />

the United States,” and the less that is said<br />

or written about this crime the better.<br />

But just because the town would rather<br />

not dwell on the trauma that took place<br />

doesn’t mean they don’t acknowledge it in<br />

some fashion. They do schedule a candlelight<br />

vigil before an all-important football<br />

game against their rivals at Sunnyvale,<br />

but that too, brings out the fisticuffs.<br />

banished until late fall. The bright<br />

days and warm nights of June<br />

relax us and it feels like summer<br />

will joyfully be here forever. I know<br />

we definitely thought like that as<br />

kids when school let out and we ran<br />

from our confined classrooms into<br />

the arms of a perceived never-ending<br />

summer of ball games, swimming,<br />

lounging, bicycling, odds and<br />

ends chores, and an overall basking<br />

in freedom.<br />

Then, seemingly suddenly, June<br />

vanishes and the Fourth of <strong>July</strong> is<br />

upon us with its promise of fun,<br />

food, and fireworks.<br />

Holidays spur memories uniquely<br />

their own. We all recall merry<br />

Christmases, happy Halloweens,<br />

thankful Thanksgivings, and more.<br />

But the<br />

Fourth is special<br />

because it<br />

is our celebration<br />

of pure<br />

columns<br />

The Fourth of <strong>July</strong><br />

Editor’s Notebook<br />

Rick<br />

Palsgrove<br />

freedom wrapped in fun. The flags<br />

are unfurled everywhere, grills are<br />

out, the parades wind through our<br />

small towns, and music fills the air<br />

with it all culminating with the<br />

explosion of the colorful lights and<br />

sounds of fireworks.<br />

In my many decades of life I<br />

have seen fireworks in a variety of<br />

places and ways. A couple of memorable<br />

ones from my youth in the<br />

1960s include:<br />

•Standing on the rails of a board<br />

fence with my siblings and cousins<br />

- hamburgers and hot dogs in hand<br />

- at my Uncle Bob Palsgrove’s farm<br />

on Williams Road (a farm that<br />

itself is now only a memory) and<br />

looking over the farm’s rich, flat<br />

fields to the horizon to see fireworks<br />

being shot off in the distance.<br />

We had the double pleasure<br />

of not only seeing fireworks in the<br />

distance, but also the golden lights<br />

of nature’s gentle lightning bugs<br />

floating over the farm fields.<br />

•And gathered with my dad and<br />

siblings (along with a crowd of<br />

other townsfolk) at Groveport<br />

Elementary where we settled in<br />

beside the large baseball diamond<br />

there to watch fireworks being shot<br />

off from the diamond’s far outfield.<br />

One could look around and see the<br />

faces of those gathered there illuminated<br />

by the fireworks that lit<br />

the night sky.<br />

Two different views of fireworks<br />

- one from far away and one close<br />

up. But both rich in memory<br />

because they combined family and<br />

a sense of place.<br />

When the Fourth of <strong>July</strong> fireworks<br />

end and the skyrockets’<br />

noise and smoke subside, the night<br />

and the quiet embrace us.<br />

The next day is a date not capitalized,<br />

the fifth of <strong>July</strong>, the first<br />

day of the rest of our summer as we<br />

glide through our time in the sun<br />

toward the future.<br />

Fall and all its glory then awaits<br />

us with its own colorful show.<br />

FEAR<br />

Continued from page 4<br />

Not wanting their altercation to end at<br />

the stadium, a group of Sunnyvale students<br />

race after the bus of Shadyside student<br />

athletes and band members. Fed up<br />

with their threatening behavior, Deena<br />

(Kiana Madeira) opens the emergency door<br />

to toss a cooler full of water at them but<br />

this causes their vehicle to crash into the<br />

woods. Immediately feeling contrite (but<br />

mostly because her ex-girlfriend Sam<br />

(Olivia Welch) was an unwitting passenger),<br />

she gets the bus to pull over the assistance<br />

but the damage has already been<br />

done.<br />

Though no one was harmed during this<br />

incident, the teens manage to unearth —<br />

and thus disturb — the burial site of Sarah<br />

Fier, a town witch who is said to have laid<br />

a curse on Shadyside before she was<br />

burned at the stake in 1666.<br />

Shortly thereafter, reanimated killers<br />

from the town’s past begin to haunt Deena,<br />

Sam, and their friends Kate (Julia<br />

Rehwald) and Simon (Fred Hechinger).<br />

Though several others are on the menu as<br />

well, (basically anyone who gets in their<br />

way) it is this little group that the spirits<br />

seem to be particularly angry with.<br />

With no ideas on how to stop these spirits<br />

before it kills them, the teens turn to<br />

Deena’s outcast brother Josh (Benjamin<br />

Flores Jr.) who is well versed on<br />

Shadyside’s murderous past. With centuries<br />

worth of news clips on all of the town<br />

terrors at their disposal, they have to figure<br />

out how they can stop the curse and<br />

the cycle of violence that has been plaguing<br />

the town for centuries.<br />

Because of how trilogy series are set up,<br />

the first installment often feels like the<br />

weakest link among the set so it is hard to<br />

fully judge “Fear Street Part I: 1994” in<br />

that respect as its succeeding films have<br />

yet to come out. (“Part II: 1978 drops on<br />

<strong>July</strong> 16 while “Part III: 1666” drops on <strong>July</strong><br />

23). But it could have been more creative<br />

with how it set up the trilogy, rather than<br />

rely on the tried and true method of low<br />

stakes, back-end action, and slow roll<br />

development.<br />

Gripes on how the creative team decided<br />

to construct this world aside, “Fear Street<br />

Part I: 1994” is a rather fun throwback<br />

slasher that is entertaining enough to<br />

watch with its 90s style, slang and music.<br />

Though some viewers will likely be torn as<br />

to whether they want to continue with this<br />

series, I think I’m going to stick with it<br />

until the end.<br />

Arthritis and exercise<br />

Exercise can be beneficial in the treatment of<br />

arthritis, say many doctors.<br />

Physical activity can reduce stiffness and increase<br />

muscle strength and flexibility. It also has overall<br />

health benefits, such as improving cardiac fitness and<br />

physical endurance. Three types of exercise are most<br />

appropriate for those who have arthritis:<br />

•Strength training: Strong muscles help support<br />

and protect joints affected by arthritis. Lifting weights<br />

can provide this.<br />

•Range of motion exercises: Dancing, tai chi,<br />

Pilates, swimming, and other activities that push the<br />

body to stretch and move help maintain normal joint<br />

motion and relieve stiffness.<br />

•Aerobic activities: Activities such as brisk walking,<br />

bicycle riding, skating and more are good for the<br />

heart. They also moderate weight, which in turn puts<br />

less strain on joints, particularly the knees. Some studies<br />

show that aerobic exercise can reduce inflammation<br />

in some joints.<br />

Before beginning an exercise program, discuss with<br />

your doctor what activities might be right for you.<br />

Benefits of growing older<br />

Many people think of growing older in a negative<br />

light.<br />

Although there are some side effects of aging that<br />

one may wish to avoid, people may find that the benefits<br />

of growing older outweigh the negatives.<br />

Seniors are a rapidly growing segment of the population.<br />

With so many people living longer, it’s time to<br />

celebrate the perks of getting older rather than the<br />

drawbacks. Here are some benefits to growing old.<br />

•Higher self-esteem: The insecurities of youth give<br />

way as one ages, and older people have less negativity<br />

and higher self-esteem. Qualities like self-control and<br />

altruism can contribute to happiness.<br />

•Financial perks: Seniors are entitled to discounts<br />

on meals, museum entry fees, movies, and other entertainment<br />

if they’re willing to disclose their ages.<br />

Discounts are available through an array of venues if<br />

one speaks up. Seniors also can enjoy travel perks,<br />

with slashed prices on resorts, plane tickets and more.<br />

•Reasoning and problem-solving skills: Brain scans<br />

reveal that older adults are more likely to use both<br />

hemispheres of their brans simultaneously something<br />

called bilateralization. This can sharpen reasoning<br />

skills.<br />

•Less stress: As people grow older, they are able to<br />

differentiate their needs from wants and focus on more<br />

important goals. This can alleviate worry over things<br />

that are beyond one’s control. Seniors may realize how<br />

little the opinions of others truly mean in the larger<br />

picture, thereby feeling less stress about what others<br />

think of them.<br />

Growing older may involve gray hair or wrinkling<br />

skin, but there are many positive things associated<br />

with aging.<br />

Even rocket scientists<br />

ask for help!<br />

Easing back to pre-pandemic life<br />

As America is easing COVID-19 restrictions, you may feel an overwhelming<br />

mix of emotions about how to move forward. This is<br />

especially true for our older adult population, as they were highly<br />

affected by the pandemic last year. According to Forbes, in 2020,<br />

“the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported<br />

that eight out of 10 Covid-19 deaths in the US had been adults 65<br />

years and older”. Many people had experienced an unprecedented<br />

amount of anxiety trying to remain safe from this virus while adjusting<br />

to a new normal, which included working from home, no large<br />

crowd gatherings, and even restrictions on visitation in nursing<br />

homes. Now, the new normal we have all gotten accustomed to is<br />

changing slightly once again. While there is not one specific way to<br />

feel or process this change, there are tips that can help ease your<br />

mind and continue to make you, your family, and others around you<br />

feel safe and protected.<br />

-Establish boundaries. Although studies have reported that the<br />

COVID-19 vaccination is effective at keeping people safe from<br />

COVID-19, that does not always mean vaccinated individuals will<br />

be ready to take off their masks or gather in large groups. A study<br />

conducted by the “American Psychological Association” found that<br />

49% of adults reported feeling uncomfortable about returning to<br />

in-person interactions when the pandemic ends. Even 48% of those<br />

who have received the COVID vaccine report feeling the same<br />

way”. As we begin going back to our pre-pandemic routines, it is<br />

understandable to abstain from any activity you do not feel comfortable<br />

doing. You can continue to wear masks even if you are fully<br />

vaccinated, and you can limit your interactions to include a small<br />

pod of people. Make the best decision for your health and your associates.<br />

-Communicate the boundaries you have made. If you have decided<br />

to keep on a mask, social distance, or not gather at events, it is<br />

best to articulate those boundaries with the people around you,<br />

including family members, caretakers, or friends. Doing so will<br />

ensure everyone is on the same page, and others will be able to<br />

respect the boundaries you have made.<br />

-Try one activity at a time. In a blog written by Anthem Memory<br />

Care, the author revealed that “there is a tendency, especially with<br />

aging loved ones who are cognitively impaired, to grow impatient<br />

when they are slower to embrace change.” When an older adult feels<br />

comfortable to start easing back into their old routine, begin with an<br />

activity, they used to enjoy. Be patient with them if they decide they<br />

want to keep their mask on or don’t want to participate in the activity<br />

yet fully.<br />

-Keep checking in on others. People will have different circumstances<br />

that may make going back to everyday life easier or harder.<br />

Some may have experienced or witnessed loss causing PTSD; others<br />

may be unable to take the vaccination due to medication complications,<br />

having an organ transplant, or other medical conditions. Some<br />

could be adult caretakers of young children who are not eligible at<br />

this time to receive the vaccination. All these situations can cause<br />

extra stress associated with returning to normal. Simply checking in<br />

on others can help them to feel less isolated and alone. Also, having<br />

a conversation with them may help to come up with a solution for<br />

relieving stress.<br />

Remember, it is not a race to ease back into society. Take your time,<br />

make sure others know where you stand, don’t do anything you feel<br />

uncomfortable doing, and keep checking in on others. If you are a<br />

Franklin County resident age 60 years or older and may need assistance,<br />

please contact the Franklin County Office on Aging at<br />

you.

CW’s Hometown Day<br />

The <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> Labor Day Committee<br />

is making plans for a Hometown Day<br />

celebration scheduled for Sept. 4 — a small,<br />

community event for the entire family.<br />

As was previously announced, the <strong>Canal</strong><br />

<strong>Winchester</strong> Labor Day Festival Board and<br />

Committee made the decision to cancel the<br />

<strong>2021</strong> Labor Day festival, originally scheduled<br />

for Sept. 4, 5, and 6. The event, which<br />

was set to celebrate its centennial year in<br />

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

in the community since 1920. The<br />

group begins planning, scheduling, and securing<br />

the many moving parts of the annual<br />

festival in January. At that time this year,<br />

communities were facing state-mandated<br />

COVID-19 event guidelines with attendance<br />

restrictions of 30 percent. The three-day<br />

Labor Day festival brings almost 30,000 visitors<br />

to <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> and there was no<br />

feasible way to control the crowd, according<br />

to organizers.<br />

In addition to these restrictions, there<br />

were also financial concerns. The annual<br />

event budget averages $80,000 and the festival<br />

is solely funded by donations and sponsorship.<br />

Although the city of <strong>Canal</strong><br />

<strong>Winchester</strong> provides considerable support,<br />

including the use city property, water and<br />

electric, and offers city staff for street closures<br />

and cleanup, the festival is not a city<br />

sponsored event. Due to the effects the pandemic<br />

had on businesses, the largest financial<br />

sponsors indicated they were unable to<br />

support the event at the same level as previous<br />

years. Because the festival could not<br />

count on major donors to support it this<br />

year, a three-day event was ruled out.<br />

Hometown Day will be a fun-filled celebration<br />

for the entire community. The event<br />

will kick-off with a parade at 11 a.m., full of<br />

street and neighborhood floats and at least<br />

three marching bands. High Street and<br />

Stradley Place will be filled with children’s<br />

activities and food trucks, including Amish<br />

Country Donuts, and musical acts such as<br />

Frankie & Ranke and The Usual Suspects<br />

& Repeat Offenders. Additional entertainment,<br />

including a special act for children,<br />

are in the planning stages.<br />

More details to follow as they become<br />

available.<br />

The <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> Area Historical<br />

Society previously announced it will hold its<br />

annual Ice Cream Social on Sept. 5 from 1-4<br />

p.m. at the Prentiss School at 10 W. Oak St.<br />

Labor Day Festival organizers said they<br />

recognize the importance of the annual<br />

three-day Labor Day festival to the community<br />

and continue to plan for the 100th<br />

Labor Day weekend celebration in 2022.<br />

Music in the Park<br />

<strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong>’s Music in the Park is<br />

a free summer concert that will be held <strong>July</strong><br />

16 from 6-9 p.m. in Stradley Place, 30 S.<br />

High St. in downtown <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong>.<br />

The event will feature classic rock favorites<br />

performed by the The Gas Pump Jockeys<br />

and a classic car show, sponsored by C-<br />

People’s Choice, Mayor’s Choice,<br />

COVID-19 Notice: Unlike outdoor concerts<br />

in previous years, concessions and<br />

hands-on children’s activities will be limited.<br />

Attendees are encouraged to bring a picnic<br />

and a lawn chair, and to follow recommended<br />

social distancing protocols to<br />

prevent the spread of COVID-19.<br />

CW’s Movies in the Park<br />

The city of <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong>, in partnership<br />

with Destination: <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong>,<br />

will host two free Movies in the Park this<br />

summer. Family-friendly movies will be<br />

shown outdoors at Hanners Park, 458<br />

Groveport Road, on Aug. 13. The movies<br />

will begin after sunset, at about 9 p.m. “The<br />

Little Rascals,” rated PG, will be shown on<br />

Aug. 13. Families may enjoy the movie from<br />

the comfort of their vehicle or bring a chair<br />

or blanket to watch from the lawn.<br />

POOL<br />

Continued from page 1<br />

“We arrived at five o’clock,” said Bowman.<br />

“These kids (allegedly creating the disturbance)<br />

climbed over the fence from the<br />

basketball courts. These kids needed to be<br />

escorted out. They (allegedly) swarmed<br />

around a lifeguard and her attention was<br />

taken away from the pool.”<br />

Trish Preston and her daughter, who is<br />

a member of the swim team, said incidents<br />

of bad behavior by teenagers and adults<br />

have escalated over the years, including one<br />

where male teenagers swam under the<br />

marked lanes during a practice and tried to<br />

grab her daughter’s friend.<br />

“I think the lifeguards are doing the best<br />

they can, but they are being intimidated,”<br />

said Preston.<br />

Deb Carpenter, who brings her grandchildren<br />

to the pool on a day pass basis<br />

when they visit, said she was saddened by<br />

the events leading up to the city restricting<br />

access. She hopes things will change and<br />

that <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> will come up with a<br />

way in which grandparents, like her, can<br />

take their grandchildren swimming at the<br />

pool on an affordable day pass.<br />

Janice Goodwin felt the city is still a<br />

small community and it is up to its residents<br />

to make a solution to the problem<br />

work. She felt cameras were the best bet in<br />

curbing inappropriate and unsafe activity.<br />

“This is up to us to tell these people,” said<br />

Goodwin. “You could make them accountable.<br />

You have to make sure you’re not<br />

going to accept what they’re doing.”<br />

Q: What are floaters and what causes them?<br />

A: Floaters are small dark shapes that move across your vision. They can appear<br />

as dots, threads, squiggly lines, or even like cobwebs. Most floaters are caused<br />

by normal changes in the eye. As you age, small strands of vitreous (gel-like fluid<br />

that fills your eye) can clump together and cast a shadow on your retina (the<br />

light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye). Those shadows appear as floaters<br />

that drift across your vision. You may notice floaters more when you look at a<br />

bright background, like a computer screen or a blue sky.<br />

Q: How often should someone with new<br />

floaters get an eye exam?<br />

A: Someone experiencing new floaters, a large increase in the number of floaters,<br />

or flashing lights should see an eye care professional immediately. Sometimes<br />

floaters have a more serious cause, including: infection, injury, inflammation,<br />

bleeding, retinal tear or retinal detachment.<br />

Someone with a few stable floaters should see an eye care professional at least<br />

once a year for a comprehensive dilated eye exam.<br />

Schedule your comprehensive eye exam<br />

today with Dr. Morris<br />

Crawley is newest Franklin County commissioner<br />

Former State Representative Erica<br />

Crawley was sworn in as the newest<br />

Franklin County Commissioner. She<br />

replaces interim commissioner, Dawn<br />

Tyler Lee, who has served since May 21 following<br />

the resignation of long-time commissioner<br />

Marilyn Brown.<br />

Crawley was chosen by the retiring commissioner’s<br />

political party as required by<br />

Ohio law and will serve the remainder of<br />

Brown’s original term through 2022.<br />

“I am excited and grateful to have the<br />

opportunity to serve the community I love<br />

in a new way and to be able to continue<br />

helping my neighbors navigate their way<br />

out of the pandemic and succeed going forward,”<br />

Crawley said. “It’s an honor that I<br />

take very seriously, and I am proud to be<br />

starting a new chapter in my life and making<br />

history in our county.”<br />

“I know Commissioner Crawley and<br />

have seen her dedication to our community<br />

and the people who live here,” said commissioner<br />

Kevin Boyce. “The residents of our<br />

county are fortunate to have somebody like<br />

her representing them on the board of commissioners.<br />

Her lifetime of service speaks<br />

for itself, and this is yet a new way for her<br />

to lead.”<br />

Crawley is originally from Youngstown,<br />

Ohio and holds a degree in criminology, a<br />

master’s degree in public administration,<br />

and a juris doctorate from Capital Law<br />

School. She has spent most of her adult life<br />

in service, first in the U.S. Navy and then<br />

working with Cuyahoga County Job and<br />

Family Services, the YMCA Head Start<br />

program, with CASA (Court Appointed<br />

Special Advocates for Children), and the<br />

Black Child Development Institute.<br />

Beginning in 2019, Crawley served in<br />

the Ohio House of Representatives, representing<br />

the 26th House District covering<br />

much of southern and southeastern<br />

Franklin County until her appointment to<br />

the board of commissioners.<br />

“It’s an honor that I take very<br />

seriously, and I am proud to be<br />

starting a new chapter in my life<br />

and making history in our county.”<br />

- Erica Crawley<br />

County commissioner<br />

Commissioner John O’Grady said, “I’m<br />

thrilled to have Erica join us as a colleague<br />

on the board of commissioners. Her character,<br />

empathy, and intelligence will be a<br />

great addition to the leadership of our<br />

county, and I am looking forward to serving<br />

with her.”<br />

The Franklin County Board of<br />

Commissioners is the administrative arm<br />

of county government, overseeing 14 county<br />

agencies, 1,400 employees, and a nearly<br />

$2 billion budget. More information about<br />

the commissioners and their twice-weekly<br />

public meetings can be found at commissioners.franklincountyohio.gov.<br />

Keep America Beautiful<br />

Keep America Beautiful, the nation’s<br />

leading community improvement forimpact<br />

organization, recently released data<br />

from its 2020 study on litter in America.<br />

The Keep America Beautiful 2020 National<br />

Litter Study provides a comprehensive<br />

understanding of the quantity, composition,<br />

and sources of litter along roadways,<br />

waterways, and in non-roadway areas<br />

across the United States.<br />

The organization’s 2020 study is a follow<br />

up to its 2009 study, which builds on a history<br />

of science-based litter research started<br />

by Keep America Beautiful in 1969.<br />

Keep America Beautiful retained Burns<br />

and McDonnell, a leading engineering,<br />

architecture, and construction firm, to conduct<br />

its study, which has four components:<br />

public attitudes survey, visible litter survey,<br />

behavioral observations survey, and<br />

financial cost of litter survey (ongoing).<br />

The data collected reveal litter is down<br />

on American roadways by 54 percent since<br />

2009.<br />

However, in total, there are still 50 billion<br />

pieces of litter on the ground in the<br />

U.S., according to the study.<br />

For the first time ever, the Keep<br />

America Beautiful 2020 National Litter<br />

Study provides a valid, national estimate of<br />

litter along waterways in the U.S. and<br />

insights about the relationship between litter<br />

on waterways and roadways.<br />

The study shows that, although roadway<br />

litter is down by more than 50 percent,<br />

there is slightly more litter along waterways.<br />

Additional key findings include:<br />

• 90 percent of U.S. residents agree that<br />

litter is a problem in their state.<br />

• Of the 50 billion pieces of litter, 24 billion<br />

are along roadways and 26 billion are<br />

along waterways.<br />

• An estimated 207 million PPE items<br />

were littered on U.S. roadways and waterways<br />

through early fall 2020.<br />

With the information from the study,<br />

Keep America Beautiful quantifies that if<br />

littering were to stop today and waste was<br />

properly managed, and every American<br />

picked up 152 pieces of litter at the same<br />

time, we would have a litter-free nation.<br />

“Behavior change is at the root of Keep<br />

America Beautiful,” said Helen Lowman,<br />

Keep America Beautiful president. “With<br />

the unity of Americans to pick up 152<br />

pieces of litter — and ultimately, to stop littering<br />

— we can ensure that everyone lives<br />

in a clean and litter-free community.”<br />

Sound the Alarm<br />

American Red Cross volunteers will<br />

Sound the Alarm in Columbus as part of a<br />

national effort to educate 100,000 people<br />

about home fire safety in high-risk neighborhoods<br />

this spring.<br />

Columbus area residents are encouraged<br />

to call 844-207-4509 to request a virtual<br />

education appointment and referral to<br />

partner agency for installation of free<br />

smoke alarms.<br />

“Home fires remain the most frequent<br />

disaster, yet most of us don’t realize we<br />

have just two minutes to safely escape,”<br />

said Cory Paul, executive director of the<br />

Greater Columbus Ohio Chapter. “Our volunteers<br />

can help residents create personal<br />

home fire escape plans and provide them<br />

with the critical information they need to<br />

protect themselves from these everyday<br />

disasters.”<br />

Central Ohio residents are also encouraged<br />

to visit SoundTheAlarm.org and<br />

pledge to prepare against home fires.<br />

This work is made possible thanks to<br />

financial donations from Red Cross’ regional<br />

partners: American Electric Power<br />

Foundation, Columbia Gas of Ohio, Dayton<br />

Power & Light Foundation, Duke Energ,<br />

and NetJets.<br />

Sound the Alarm is part of the larger<br />

Home Fire Campaign. Since launching the<br />

campaign in 2014, the Red Cross has<br />

helped save 864 lives across the country by<br />

helping families create escape plans and<br />

installing free smoke alarms. This work is<br />

made possible with Red Cross’ partners,<br />

who have helped make more than 900,000<br />

households safer in at-risk communities.<br />

Historic canal trail<br />

The Scenic Scioto Heritage Trail, Inc.,<br />

and its partner communities recently<br />

announced the development of the new<br />

Ohio and Erie <strong>Canal</strong> Southern Descent<br />

Heritage Trail from Buckeye Lake to<br />

Portsmouth.<br />

The 114 mile driving trail begins at the<br />

southern edge of Buckeye Lake in Fairfield<br />

County. It includes Bibler lock 8 in<br />

Baltimore; locks 11, 12, and 13 in Lockville;<br />

lock 22 in Groveport; locks 26, 27, 29, and<br />

30 in and near Lockbourne; and remnants<br />

Lockbourne in Franklin County.<br />

In Pickaway County the trail passes<br />

lock 31 in Millport and includes <strong>Canal</strong><br />

Park in Circleville. In Scioto County the<br />

trail continues south through Rushtown at<br />

lock 48 and lock 50 in West Portsmouth<br />

and ends at lock 55, west of downtown<br />

Portsmouth at the Ohio River.<br />

All of these canal locks, with the exception<br />

of lock 55, are listed in the National<br />

Register of Historic Places. Work to list<br />

lock 55 is underway.<br />

Once the trail has been established, residents<br />

and visitors will be able to learn the<br />

story of this important transportation<br />

route as they follow the driving trail.<br />

Creation of the trail, which will be<br />

launched next fall, is being funded by the<br />

Yost reaches settlement<br />

with internet provider<br />

Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost<br />

reached a settlement agreement with<br />

Frontier Communications to increase the<br />

quality of internet coverage to underserved<br />

areas of Ohio and to stop overbilling customers<br />

for unreliable service.<br />

The settlement comes after an investigation<br />

into Frontier’s sales and advertising<br />

practices related to the internet services<br />

offered and sold to Ohio consumers. In conjunction<br />

with outside counsel, Yost’s<br />

Consumer Protection Section negotiated<br />

the settlement after finding the internet<br />

provider, based in Norwalk, Conn., was<br />

charging customers prices for certain levels<br />

of internet speeds that the company knew<br />

could not be reached.<br />

As part of the agreement, Frontier is<br />

funding upgrades to its internet infrastructure<br />

to provide or enhance existing services<br />

in Ohio and for Ohio consumers.<br />

Frontier must also cease advertisements<br />

that were found to be deceptive in<br />

terms of the levels of internet speeds it can<br />

deliver in certain pricing tiers of its products<br />

and must offer certain customers the<br />

option to continue with their current plan,<br />

discontinue with no fee or move to a different<br />

lower cost service package with a lower<br />

service speed, if available<br />

Teen Ambassador<br />

deadline extended<br />

Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost’s office extended<br />

the deadline for high school students to apply for the<br />

Teen Ambassador Board. Interested teens now have<br />

until <strong>July</strong> 16 to apply.<br />

The Attorney General’s Teen Ambassador Board<br />

consists of high school juniors and seniors from public,<br />

private, charter, home and online schools in Ohio. The<br />

mission of the program is to provide Ohio’s future leaders<br />

with an inside look at state law and government.<br />

“Young men and women curious about what the<br />

next chapter of life could bring should apply for the<br />

Teen Ambassador Board,” Yost said. “This board provides<br />

an inside look at multiple career paths in public<br />

service and could open young minds to an unknown<br />

opportunity.”<br />

The student board members advise the office on<br />

Cancer support groups<br />

OhioHealth and Cancer Support Community<br />

Central Ohio are partnering on a free series of virtual<br />

support groups for newly diagnosed cancer patients<br />

and their families.<br />

The six-week sessions will run six times during<br />

<strong>2021</strong> and will cover a variety of topics including:<br />

•First Steps After You’re Diagnosed: Learning a<br />

New Language<br />

•Resources to Partner with Your Healthcare Team<br />

•Communicating with Your Family Through<br />

Cancer<br />

•Coping with Side Effects<br />

•Proper Nutrition and Staying Active<br />

•Managing the Emotions of Cancer<br />

Participants are welcome to join the group at any<br />

point and can join missed sessions during another<br />

series. The groups are led by a licensed social worker<br />

from Cancer Support Community Central Ohio with<br />

www.columbusmessenger.com<br />

the support of an OhioHealth cancer nurse navigator.<br />

“We are thankful to Cancer Support Community<br />

Central Ohio for partnering with us to provide this<br />

important service to our cancer patients,” said Lisa<br />

Ahonen, OhioHealth system program director, supportive<br />

cancer care. “Receiving a cancer diagnosis is an<br />

emotional experience that comes with many questions<br />

for the patient and their family. Joining a support<br />

group, such as this series, can help them find answers<br />

and connect with people who are experiencing the<br />

same thing they are.”<br />

“We are pleased to be partnering with OhioHealth<br />

to provide this series of support and education programs<br />

for newly diagnosed cancer patients and their<br />

families,” said Bev Soult, president and CEO, Cancer<br />

Support Community Central Ohio. “The best cancer<br />

treatment combines medical treatment with support<br />

and education to help address with the emotional and<br />

behavioral concerns that accompany a cancer diagnosis.<br />

We applaud OhioHealth for its commitment to<br />

delivering exceptional care for cancer patients and<br />

their families to achieve a better quality of life.”<br />

The series is free, but those interested in joining<br />

must register to get a secure Zoom link for each event.<br />

Registration is available by visiting cancersupportohio.org/ohiohealth<br />

or calling 614-884-4673.<br />

Fostering dogs<br />

The Franklin County Dog Shelter and Adoption<br />

Center will begin offering individuals in Franklin<br />

County the opportunity to foster shelter dogs while<br />

they are still available for direct adoption. While fostering<br />

a dog, it is possible to learn more about how that<br />

dog will act in a home setting, increase the dog’s network<br />

of potential adopters, and give them time out of<br />

the shelter to decompress. Many dogs enter the shelter<br />

as stray dogs, so virtually nothing is known about<br />

them. Foster homes provide the opportunity to learn<br />

important details about dogs in the shelter’s care.<br />

“Fostering is an important and rewarding experience,”<br />

said Kaye Persinger, director of the Franklin<br />

County Dog Shelter. “We don’t know the history of so<br />

many dogs in our care, and foster families can help fillin<br />

the blanks, letting us know how these dogs will<br />

behave around people, children, other dogs and pets,<br />

and how they generally exist in a home setting.”<br />

Thee dogs also become Instagram and Facebook<br />

stars, and the shelter can learn information that will<br />

help find the dog their perfect forever home.<br />

Those interested in learning more about<br />

the program, and possibly participating,<br />

should visit the shelter website,<br />

www.franklincountydogs.com. To speak to<br />

someone directly about the program, email<br />

foster@franklincountyohio.gov.<br />

Lemonade stand helps raise funds to fight leukemia<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Every little bit counts and cups of lemonade<br />

count in helping the family of a <strong>Canal</strong><br />

<strong>Winchester</strong> nine-year-old in a battle against<br />

a form of leukemia.<br />

While his brother, Brady Martin, undergoes<br />

treatment for acute lymphocytic<br />

leukemia in Children’s Hospital, twin Blake<br />

Martin, sister Aubrey Martin and friend<br />

Charlie Milliken staffed a Lemonade<br />

Against Leukemia stand at the city’s June<br />

26 Farmer’s Market.<br />

“Brady is a very playful and cheerful kid.<br />

He loves spending time with people,” said<br />

Charlie, who came up with the idea for the<br />

fundraiser. “Sadly, he can’t do that as much<br />

anymore due to him having Leukemia cancer.”<br />

During the June 26 market, the children<br />

raised $1,245. On June 12, the first time<br />

Charlie opened the lemonade stand at the<br />

market, he raised $500.<br />

“Charlie’s Lemonade Against Leukemia<br />

stand will be making several appearances<br />

at different locations across <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong>,<br />

including Yellowood Farms on <strong>July</strong> 11,<br />

Fantasy Cupcakes, and potentially at the<br />

Farmers Market again,” said Danielle Milliken,<br />

Charlie’s mother. “I am so happy to<br />

see Charlie, Blake and Aubrey get to do<br />

something they feel is productive and helpful<br />

in what is otherwise a heartbreaking<br />

and difficult time. I think the lemonade<br />

stand is helping them process and deal with<br />

emotions and help them feel proactive and<br />

empowered to help Brady.”<br />

First diagnosed on June 10, Brady began<br />

treatment the following day. The family<br />

spent the next four days in an intensive care<br />

unit at Nationwide Children’s Hospital before<br />

Brady was transferred to the oncology<br />

floor. The nine-year-old was later released,<br />

but because of several complications, he was<br />

readmitted to the hospital three days later.<br />

In an online report, the Mayo Clinic said<br />

acute lymphocytic leukemia is a type of cancer<br />

of the blood and bone marrow that progresses<br />

rapidly and creates immature blood<br />

cells, rather than mature ones. While it is the<br />

most common type of cancer in children, and<br />

treatments result in a good chance for a cure,<br />

Brady is in a high-risk category because of<br />

his white blood cell count at diagnosis.<br />

“We learned last week that along with<br />

the high risk, Brady has an extremely rare<br />

genetic mutation. The mutation was only<br />

found 64 times in the world in a span of almost<br />

20 years,” said Kristin Martin, Brady’s<br />

mother. “While extremely rare, it has a lot<br />

of similarities to another mutation called<br />

the Philadelphia Chromosome.”<br />

According to Kristin, because of the similarities<br />

in the mutation, doctors added an<br />

additional chemotherapy to her son’s treatment<br />

that has a high success rate with the<br />

Philadelphia mutation. Brady will need to<br />

Part of the fundraising efforts for the family of nine-year-old Brady Martin, who is<br />

battling leukemia, include a lemonade stand at the <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> Farmer’s Market<br />

manned by Brady’s twin brother, Blake, center; their sister, Aubrey Martin, 7, left<br />

front; and friend Charlie Milliken, 10, right, who came up with the idea for the<br />

fundraiser. The children served lemonade and information to Danielle Milliken, Charlie’s<br />

mother, right on June 26.<br />

take the additional chemotherapy daily for<br />

the next two and half years in hopes of getting<br />

rid of the mutation completely.<br />

“So, while the rarity of his case brings<br />

the success rate down, we are confident in<br />

Brady’s oncology team and researchers<br />

guiding his care," Kristin said.<br />

Danielle said the community rallied<br />

around Brady and the Martin family in powerful<br />

ways, from Charlie’s Lemonade Against<br />

Leukemia stand to a Go Fund Me page–Way<br />

to Battle Brady Martin– that has raised<br />

$6,175 as of <strong>July</strong> 5 with a goal of $10,000.<br />

Family friends from Blake’s baseball<br />

team–the Central Ohio Cyclones–are selling<br />

bracelets that say, “Be brave like Brady”<br />

and his soccer team, the Pride Soccer Club,<br />

sold t-shirts and collected gift cards.<br />

“People have been making and selling<br />

bracelets and car decals. Many have been<br />

praying, giving money, delivering meals,<br />

caring for Brady's siblings, and so much<br />

more,” said Danielle. “It’s one of the many<br />

reasons I love living here so much. Our<br />

neighbors are truly our neighbors. We care<br />

for one another and come together during<br />

difficult times."<br />

Kristin said their church–C3 Church–<br />

collected money as well. Several businesses<br />

are collecting gift cards and donations and<br />

a meal train was set up for the family.<br />

“We have been blown away by the outpouring<br />

of love and support,” said Kristin.<br />

“So many people have stepped up to help<br />

our family through this time. We honestly<br />

could never quite put into words the gratitude<br />

we have for everyone’s generosity.”
