Obetz reaches city status<br />

Census shows population<br />

surges past 5,000<br />

By Katelyn Sattler<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Residents will not see many differences<br />

in the way the village of Obetz functions as<br />

it transitions to become the city of Obetz.<br />

According to the 2020 U.S. Census,<br />

Obetz grew 21 percent since 2010 to 5,489<br />

residents and now qualifies as a city as it<br />

surpassed the 5,000 resident requirement<br />

in Ohio.<br />

In comparison to nearby towns, according<br />

to the 2020 U.S. Census, the population<br />

of the city of Canal Winchester grew 28<br />

percent to 9,107 and the city of Groveport<br />

grew 12 percent to 6,009.<br />

“We’re excited about city status, said<br />

Obetz Mayor Angela Kirk.<br />

Obetz officials have been planning for<br />

the change to city status as the Obetz<br />

Village Charter lays out what will change<br />

once the town becomes a city.<br />

“I think we’re in really good shape as far<br />

as our Charter goes to make this a smooth<br />

transition,” said Kirk. “We formed a<br />

Charter Review Commission and met this<br />

winter to determine what will be revised in<br />

the Charter when we become a city. We’ve<br />

been planning the development of neighborhoods<br />

to prepare for growth, which<br />

reflects our ability to transition smoothly.<br />

We’ll be eligible for more grants and federal<br />

programs and it won’t affect our budget.”<br />

Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose<br />

will send Kirk a letter proclaiming Obetz to<br />

be a city, which will become effective 30<br />

days after the issuance of the letter. Within<br />

120 days after Obetz becomes a city, Obetz<br />

Council will follow through with setting up<br />

the city as described in the Village Charter.<br />

The main change will be in hiring<br />

employees. While Obetz Village<br />

Administrator Rod Davisson feels Obetz<br />

already has a highly qualified staff based<br />

on merit and fitness, the jobs currently do<br />

not require competitive examinations, or<br />

ranking of competitors, which will be<br />

required in the transition to city status.<br />

The city will need to establish the competitive<br />

examinations, which will make hiring<br />

personnel more cumbersome as employees<br />

then become classified service employees.<br />

This applies only to new employees as current<br />

employees will not be required to take<br />

competitive examinations for their current<br />

positions.<br />

The only new hiring required by the<br />

change in status from village to city is to<br />

create the Personnel Board of Review,<br />

which will consist of three members<br />

appointed by the mayor and confirmed by<br />

council for overlapping three years terms,<br />

to hear employment appeals and render<br />

decisions.<br />

When asked if he thought employees<br />

might unionize once Obetz becomes a city,<br />

Davisson wasn’t sure.<br />

“They all could do it,” said Davisson.<br />

“There are tons of unions out there, but I<br />

think the employees are happy here. Obetz<br />

is the best place to work.”<br />

Added Kirk, “I don’t know if they will<br />

unionize, which is absolutely their choice.<br />

Either way, it won’t be any type of burden<br />

for our residents.”<br />

Obetz officials feel the transition will be<br />

seamless and most residents will not<br />

notice a difference, as the town has been<br />

essentially operating as a city already.<br />

“Nothing changes as far as the budget<br />

goes,” said Davisson.<br />

This has been a natural progression<br />

over the past 15 to 20 years. Even the<br />

newer signs have dropped “Village” in<br />

anticipation of receiving city status.<br />

“We started doing city-level accrualbased<br />

accounting every year seven years<br />

ago,” said Davisson. “Villages do cashbased<br />

accounting every other year.”<br />

Accrual accounting recognizes revenues<br />

and expenses in the same period, whereas<br />

cash accounting recognizes transactions<br />

only when payment is exchanged.<br />

Being a city means Obetz will have<br />

access to different federal and state grants<br />

under Ohio law.<br />

“When interacting with other states, the<br />

city designation carries more weight,” said<br />

Davisson.

It was a time to look to the sky<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

The Borror Observatory in the former<br />

Hoover Y-Park on Rohr Road was once a<br />

mecca for local stargazers who looked to the<br />

skies through the lens of a homemade 10-<br />

inch reflecting telescope.<br />

Built out of concrete blocks in 1961, with<br />

a 14-foot dome donated by Columbus<br />

Astronomical Society (CAS) member<br />

Charles Worch, the observatory was a<br />

memorial to Ed Borror, who passed away in<br />

1960 and whose financial contributions<br />

made the park possible.<br />

According to Charles Legg–who spent<br />

many hours as a teenager volunteering at<br />

the observatory and served as its de facto<br />

director–not long after it was built, the<br />

observatory fell into disuse until Legg was<br />

approached by a member of the YMCA who<br />

told him about the situation.<br />

“When I was16, I volunteered at COSI<br />

doing planetarium lectures and was a member<br />

of the CAS,” said Legg, 73. “I met Jim<br />

Wagner, who worked at the <strong>South</strong>side<br />

YMCA. He told me about the situation with<br />

the observatory. He expressed concern that<br />

no one was using the observatory for its<br />

intended purpose–to provide public open<br />

houses and its use by amateur astronomers.<br />

I was fairly ambitious back then at 16, so I<br />

expressed an interest in visiting the observatory,<br />

checking the condition of the telescope<br />

and building, and seeing what I could do to<br />

help.”<br />

Legg visited the site and found the building<br />

dirty, with spider webs everywhere, but<br />

the telescope was covered and in good condition.<br />

Wagner met with Legg’s parents, who<br />

agreed their son could help correct the situation,<br />

although his mother had reservations<br />

about her son having a key to the observatory.<br />

“In the end, it all worked out, and there<br />

was never a problem,” said Legg. “However,<br />

my dad had to take me to the observatory<br />

and pick me up until I received my drivers'<br />

license. Since I was still an active member of<br />

the CAS, it was not too much trouble stirring up interest,<br />

primarily with the younger members; the 13-17-<br />

year-olds.”<br />

According to Legg, the observatory became a focal<br />

point for younger members of the CAS.<br />

“In some ways, members of the CAS ran its operation<br />

through me, but there was never an official connection<br />

to the CAS, we were just all members of the<br />

CAS,” said Legg. “By that time, we had formed the<br />

This is a rear of the Borror Observatory in the former Hoover Y-<br />

Park on Rohr Road back in the days when it was operational.<br />

Young astronomers use a telescope set up just outside the<br />

Borror Observatory. Members of the Columbus Astronomical<br />

Society would often set up their own telescopes around the<br />

observatory for the public to view objects in the night sky.<br />

Junior Astronomers of Columbus. It was a rebellious<br />

time in the 1960s. Over time, I believe we disbanded<br />

and just were once again members of the CAS. We<br />

would meet on Saturday afternoons when we would<br />

clean up the building and kill the wasps who loved to<br />

build homes in the dome. They did not like the vibrations<br />

when we rotated the dome.”<br />

Work parties on occasion addressed issues such as<br />

painting old wooden chairs in the room below the telescope<br />

and the weathering dome, which also<br />

needed a new coat of silver paint donated by<br />

a local store. Legg worked out a deal with a<br />

company to donate a gas heater for the wintertime<br />

and the <strong>South</strong>side Y to supply the<br />

propane.<br />

The youths were also creative in obtaining<br />

items such as a blackboard, bookcase,<br />

and a table through donations.<br />

“Some Saturday nights, 25 to 50 people<br />

might show up, especially when something<br />

astronomical was in the news, such as a<br />

comet or a meteor shower,” said Legg. “Other<br />

members and I were on local TV shows. It<br />

was primarily to promote the observatory<br />

and get people to visit. We were on frequently<br />

for a show that followed Flippo on<br />

Channel 10. We seemed to have better<br />

attendance for a few weeks after doing the<br />

publicity. Scout groups were also frequent<br />

visitors. Some scouts were interested in<br />

getting their astronomy merit badges.”<br />

Mini-lectures on astronomical subjects<br />

were often presented before taking visitors<br />

up to the telescope and CAS members<br />

would set up their own telescopes around<br />

the observatory for the public to view<br />

objects.<br />

“With the observatory telescope, you<br />

could see the rings of Saturn, the moons of<br />

Jupiter and its Great Red Spot, the crescent<br />

shape of Venus, the white polar cap of<br />

Mars contrasted with the red surface. All<br />

these were visible at one time or another<br />

during a year,” Legg said. “Most visitors<br />

were just amazed at what they could see<br />

when looking into the eyepiece of a telescope.<br />

They would ask, ‘Is that real, or is it<br />

a photograph?’ We would then put our<br />

hand in from of the telescope, and the<br />

object would disappear.”<br />

Another favorite viewing destination<br />

was the moon. Legg said everyone sees the<br />

moon in the night sky all the time, but<br />

until you look at it through a high-powered<br />

telescope, you have not seen the moon.<br />

The theft of the observatory’s original<br />

homemade telescope was discovered early<br />

Barber Museum<br />

The National Barber Museum in Canal<br />

Winchester is located at 135 Franklin St.<br />

(behind the former CW High School building).<br />

The museum, housed in approximately<br />

5,000 square feet, showcases art, artifacts,<br />

and memorabilia from decades of the<br />

barbering profession. Regular hours are<br />

Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.<br />

one Saturday evening. Security was<br />

always a problem since the site was out in<br />

the country and rather isolated even<br />

though a caretaker lived nearby.<br />

“We found broken windows several<br />

times, but there were not many valuable<br />

items kept there because of the problem,<br />

other than the telescope,” said Legg, who<br />

continued to be in charge of the observatory<br />

until 1968, when he graduated from<br />

high school.<br />

A new, smaller, yet more powerful commercial<br />

reflecting telescope replaced the<br />

one stolen, but it, too, was taken after a<br />

few years. Legg believes after the second<br />

telescope disappeared, activities stopped at<br />

the observatory, but is unsure since he was<br />

attending college and no longer involved<br />

with the observatory.<br />

Legg said he had always been a lifelong<br />

learner, and much of that learning started<br />

when he was at the YMCA Observatory<br />

and the COSI Planetarium. The observatory<br />

was special to him because it allowed<br />

him to indulge in all of his passions at one<br />

time.<br />

“I learned from fellow amateur<br />

astronomers,” said Legg. “I was doing what<br />

I enjoyed and educated children and older<br />

adults every time we had an open house.<br />

As a side benefit, I made many friends,<br />

young and old. My strength is an extensive<br />

technical understanding; my passion is<br />

learning, doing, and teaching.”<br />

Will this be the year for the Browns?<br />

I’ve been thinking about a conversation<br />

I overheard recently that left me feeling<br />

unsettled — so much so that I decided to<br />

step out of my Reel Deal comfort zone to<br />

share what had occurred.<br />

While there was nothing unfriendly or<br />

threatening about this exchange, I was<br />

overwhelmed with pity for these individuals<br />

for what I assumed was their naïve<br />

enthusiasm regarding the topic at hand.<br />

What follows is the conversation in<br />

question, relayed to the best of my ability.<br />

I ask you, dear reader, whether I am being<br />

unfair to these people and those of a likemind.<br />

Individual A, who will henceforth be<br />

referred to as delusional person one (DPO),<br />

glances at a hat being worn by another and<br />

offers a compliment.<br />

“Hey man,” said DPO, “That’s a great<br />

hat you’re wearing.”<br />

“Thanks,” said Individual B, who will<br />

henceforth be known as delusional person<br />

two (DPT). “I’ve been a fan of the Cleveland<br />

Browns my entire life.”<br />

“Me too,” said DPO. “It’s so exciting that<br />

they made the playoffs this year and finally<br />

won a game.”<br />

“More so because it was against the<br />

(Pittsburgh) Steelers,” said DPT.<br />

“It feels like a new era,” said DPO.<br />

“What do you think of their chances next<br />

season? I think if we get all our guys back,<br />

we can make it to the Super Bowl.”<br />

“I think so too,” said DPT. “I think we’re<br />

gonna win the whole thing. We’re gonna be<br />

unstoppable.”<br />

My immediate reaction to this conversation<br />

was that they were joking. After all, I<br />

too love chanting “Super Bowl” when the<br />

Cleveland Browns do something vaguely<br />

resembling competency. With slowly dawning<br />

horror, however, I realized they were<br />

serious. Against my better judgement, I<br />

closed my gaping maw but offered a silent<br />

prayer for their wayward minds.<br />

“To whatever is out there, please guide<br />

these poor souls,” I said. “For at their age,<br />

they really ought to know better.”<br />

As the weeks wore on, I kept coming<br />

back to this conversation, especially as the<br />

chorus of high expectations for the <strong>2021</strong><br />

Browns spilled out the mouths of professional<br />

sports analysts. I began to question<br />

my skepticism, wondering whether I was<br />

being too harsh on the admittedly<br />

improved Brownies. Upon reflection, I realized<br />

I may be acting unfairly toward my<br />

beloved team but I just cannot give them<br />

my whole and hopeful heart — not yet at<br />

least, for they have crushed it many times<br />

before.<br />

I was indoctrinated into the Browns fandom<br />

at birth. Part of it was due to my<br />

father, a rabid fan, and another part was<br />

due to the lulling effect the orange painted<br />

walls of our living room had on my psyche.<br />

It was oddly soothing though I wasn’t sad<br />

to have painted over it in the future.<br />

I was very young when the Browns were<br />

in their competitive 1980s era, but I do<br />

remember how their losses (especially “The<br />

Drive” and “The Fumble”) impacted my<br />

father. He was absolutely crushed and<br />

though I may have been too young to<br />

understand what all was going on, I knew<br />

that he was hurting and thus I was too.<br />

Wanting him to be happy, I cheered on<br />

the Browns and cursed the teams they battled.<br />

Then I would turn coat and root on<br />

those teams, but only if their win would<br />

improve the Browns’ standings. This went<br />

on until The Betrayal, which was a dark<br />

time for fans throughout the country.<br />

I don’t want to rehash their revival era,<br />

mostly because it is sad and depressing.<br />

But I will say it gave me some great opportunities<br />

to laugh, especially when one of<br />

our many quarterbacks became trapped<br />

under a giant American flag during pregame.<br />

Having given up expectations for this<br />

The Reel Deal<br />

team a long time ago, I<br />

did not have much optimism<br />

for the reign of<br />

General Manager<br />

Andrew Berry and<br />

Head Coach Kevin<br />

Stefanski though it felt<br />

like adults were finally<br />

in the room. But<br />

Dedra<br />

Cordle<br />

then something<br />

bizarre started to<br />

happen — they overcame<br />

challenges (in an odd turn, most not<br />

self-imposed) and started to win.<br />

When they made the playoffs for the<br />

first time since 2002, it was a pleasant surprise<br />

— even more so when they thrashed<br />

the Steelers in the Wild Card game and<br />

made Ben Roethlisberger cry. They gave us<br />

hope in the second round against a tough<br />

opponent in the Kansas City Chiefs but<br />

ultimately came up short.<br />

With the entire coaching staff returning,<br />

the entire starting offensive returning, and<br />

a “re-vamped” defense led by Myles<br />

Garrett, Denzel Ward and veteran newcomers<br />

Jadeveon Clowney and John<br />

Johnson III, it is no wonder why fans and<br />

pundits alike are abuzz with positive chatter<br />

as the start of the <strong>2021</strong> season<br />

approaches. Though I want to hold hands<br />

and join in on this peculiar sensation, I<br />

can’t — I just can’t.<br />

For me, there is a cloud of strangeness<br />

that always hangs over the Browns (case in<br />

point, promising rookie linebacker<br />

Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah dropped a<br />

weight on his head and can’t put on a helmet<br />

because of his stitches) and I cannot in<br />

good faith believe in good things to come. I<br />

Red Cross needs<br />

volunteer drivers<br />

The American Red Cross needs transportation<br />

specialists in central Ohio to<br />

deliver blood.<br />

These volunteer drivers will either pick<br />

up blood products from the Red Cross processing<br />

facility at 995 E. Broad St. and<br />

deliver the boxes to area hospitals and/or<br />

pick up blood from drive locations around<br />

central Ohio and deliver it to Broad Street.<br />

Transportation specialists help ensure<br />

that blood products are available when and<br />

where they are needed for hospital use<br />

such as for trauma victims, surgery<br />

patients, those receiving cancer and sickle<br />

cell treatment among other serious medical<br />

conditions.<br />

The American Red Cross is experiencing<br />

a severe blood shortage as the number<br />

of trauma cases, organ transplants and<br />

elective surgeries rise — and deplete the<br />

nation’s blood inventory.<br />

“The donation of the blood is the first<br />

step in the process,” said Wendy<br />

BROWNS<br />

Continued from page 1<br />

hope that good things happen; I begrudge<br />

none of you who can believe, but I do so<br />

wish you could keep it to yourself. You may<br />

have overcome the past, but what you are<br />

saying is scary and unfamiliar and we have<br />

enough of that in the non-sporting world<br />

already.<br />

Yarbrough, regional donor services executive.<br />

“Once the blood is collected, we need<br />

to ensure it gets to its intended destination<br />

quickly and safely. That’s why volunteer<br />

transportation specialists are so crucial to<br />

this lifesaving process.”<br />

No special transportation license is<br />

needed for this position. Volunteers will<br />

drive Red Cross cars or standard mini<br />

vans. To be eligible, prospective volunteers<br />

must have a valid driver’s license, three<br />

years driving experience and a safe driving<br />

record. Transportation specialists must be<br />

able to lift 45 pounds.<br />

More than 90 percent of the Red Cross<br />

workforce is made up of volunteers.<br />

Cross transportation specialist go to<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<br />

to 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<br />

volunteers can help residents create personal<br />

home fire escape plans and provide<br />

them with the critical information they<br />

need to protect themselves from these<br />

everyday disasters.”<br />

Central Ohio residents are encouraged to<br />

visit SoundTheAlarm.org and pledge to prepare<br />

against home fires. This work is made<br />

possible thanks to financial donations from<br />

Red Cross’ regional partners: American<br />

Electric Power Foundation, Columbia Gas of<br />

Ohio, Dayton Power & Light Foundation,<br />

Duke Energ, and NetJets.<br />

Since launching the campaign in 2014,<br />

the Red Cross has helped save 864 lives<br />

across the country by helping families create<br />

escape plans and installing free smoke<br />

alarms.<br />

Masks now mandated in Hamilton Local Schools<br />

IF IMPLANTS FAILS?<br />

A dental implant is inserted into<br />

the bone in order to support “permanent”<br />

dentures. In effect, it is a<br />

replacement for removable dentures.<br />

The technique is getting better<br />

each year. Records show that<br />

some implants have now lasted<br />

over 20 years.<br />

However, what if an implant fails?<br />

Would it leave your jaws in a worse<br />

state than if you had worn conventional<br />

dentures? The answer depends<br />

on three factors:<br />

1) How much bone was originally<br />

available, and should the implants<br />

have been done in the first place?<br />

2) How well were the implants inserted<br />

surgically and how well were<br />

the teeth made?<br />

Dr. Kelly<br />

3) How long have the failed implants<br />

remained in the mouth? If<br />

the patient was a suitable candidate<br />

to begin with, if everything<br />

was done correctly, and if the failed<br />

implant is removed as soon as possible,<br />

there should be little or no<br />

bone loss. Very often, another implant<br />

can be inserted at a later date.<br />

There is always the option for the<br />

patient to go back to wearing conventional<br />

dentures.<br />

Prepared as a public service<br />

to promote better dental health.<br />

Celebrating canal history<br />

Communities up and down the length of the old<br />

Ohio and Erie Canal are getting ready to celebrate<br />

their canal history and the creation of the new driving<br />

trail that highlights that heritage.<br />

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

communities recently announced the development<br />

of the new Ohio and Erie Canal <strong>South</strong>ern Descent<br />

Heritage Trail from Buckeye Lake to Portsmouth.<br />

Groveport will hold its kickoff event, Groveport<br />

Canal Day: Celebrating Our Heritage Along the<br />

<strong>South</strong>ern Descent Trail, for the trail on Sept. 5 from<br />

noon to 4 p.m. in Heritage Park, 551 Wirt Road. It will<br />

include refreshments and possibly acoustic music<br />

entertainment. Heritage Park will serve as the starting<br />

point for people to venture out to view other canal<br />

sites in town including the Sharp’s Landing building<br />

across from the Groveport Cemetery; a canal mural<br />

inside KidSpace, 630 Wirt Road; the Groveport<br />

Heritage Museum in Town Hall, 648 Main St.; Lock 22<br />

in Groveport Park; canal channel remnants in<br />

Blacklick Park, and more. Visitors may walk to the<br />

sites or use a shuttle to Lock 22 provided by the city of<br />

Groveport.<br />

The village of Lockbourne’s kickoff event is Sept. 25<br />

from 2-6 p.m. at Locke Meadow Park, 154 Commerce<br />

St., which could include guided hikes along the<br />

Magnolia Trail, a talk on the history of the Ohio & Erie<br />

Canal and Lockbourne’s significance during the canal<br />

days, activities and games for the children, chili cook<br />

off, and possibly a live band.<br />

The 114 mile driving trail of<br />

the The Ohio & Erie Canal<br />

<strong>South</strong>ern Descent Historic<br />

District begins at the southern<br />

edge of Buckeye Lake in<br />

Fairfield County. It includes<br />

Bibler lock 8 in Baltimore; locks<br />

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

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

and 30 in and near Lockbourne;<br />

and remnants of the Columbus<br />

Feeder just west of Lockbourne<br />

in Franklin County.<br />

In Pickaway County the trail<br />

includes Canal Park in<br />

Circleville. In Scioto County the<br />

trail continues south through<br />

Rushtown at lock 48 and lock 50<br />

in West Portsmouth and ends at<br />

Across the nation, confrontations are on the rise<br />

between parents opposing mask mandates and school<br />

boards dealing with increased absences due to COVID-19<br />

quarantines. The Hamilton Local district is no exception.<br />

On Aug. 30, the Hamilton Board of Education<br />

addressed the issue as the high school prepared to shut<br />

down for a second day in the row due to pandemic quarantine<br />

concerns.<br />

Despite vocal opposition to masks from some parents–<br />

a few of whom were removed from the meeting for speaking<br />

out of turn after a public participation session ended–<br />

contrasted by support for masks from students attending<br />

the meeting–the board voted to institute an across-theboard<br />

mask mandate for all school buildings.<br />

The spike in cases and quarantines in Hamilton Local<br />

Schools prompted the board to require masks for all students,<br />

staff, and visitors in indoor spaces, which went into<br />

effect on Sept. 1. Students riding on district transportation<br />

were already required to wear masks while on board.<br />

In an open letter to the district posted to the district’s<br />

Facebook page on Aug. 30, Superintendent Mark Tyler<br />

said, “This decision comes after having closely monitored<br />

the data trends impacting our district. The board of education<br />

is aware of these trends and the district's concerns<br />

about preserving the continuity of education. Due to the<br />

Ohio Department of Health’s Guidelines for Quarantine<br />

After Exposure in K-12 Classroom Settings, we are focusing<br />

on keeping students and staff in school by reducing the<br />

potential that they would be close contacts and quarantines,<br />

resulting in missing class.”<br />

Tyler said Hamilton Local’s goal remains to keep as<br />

many students and staff in the classroom as possible and<br />

acknowledged the topic is a difficult issue within the community.<br />

Tyler emphasized the decision was made to keep<br />

students in school, in-person, five days a week.<br />

Despite a number of student athletes in quarantine,<br />

district spokesperson Kaitlin Duncan said there is<br />

not a concentration of positive cases within the athletic<br />

program.<br />

“We have had six games cancelled between both JV and<br />

Varsity teams throughout all fall sports,” said Duncan.<br />

“Any league games will be rescheduled. Currently there<br />

are 34 cases within the district, with 19 cases being at the<br />

high school. This can be referenced on our COVID Update<br />

Report: https://bit.ly/HLSDCovidCases.”<br />

Case numbers are updated by the school nurse.<br />

Cumulatively, there were 53 positive cases reported since<br />

the start of school. Parents/guardians are asked to report<br />

new positive COVID-19 cases to their child’s school.<br />

The district must then notify the Franklin County<br />

Public Health Department within 24 hours of a positive<br />

case reported by a staff or for a student. If a child was<br />

deemed to be in close contact of an infected person, a parent/guardian<br />

will be notified by the health department, not<br />

the district.<br />

lock 55, west of downtown Portsmouth at the Ohio<br />

River.<br />

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

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

Places. Work to list lock 55 is underway. The locks’<br />

function was to raise and lower water levels for canal<br />

boats to meet the changing level of terrain.<br />

Residents and visitors can learn the story of this<br />

important transportation route as they follow the driving<br />

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

this fall, is being funded by the Canal Society of Ohio<br />

and Ohio Humanities grants.<br />

Former Lockbourne school hosts reunion<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Familiar faces filled a familiar place as former students,<br />

who spent an afternoon in a recently renovated former<br />

Hamilton Township elementary school in Lockbourne,<br />

walked through its doors for an annual celebration.<br />

The village of Lockbourne held its second School<br />

Reunion Luncheon on Aug. 25 in what is now known as the<br />

Lockbourne Historical Hall. The building is the former<br />

home of a Masonic lodge that started out as Hamilton<br />

Local Schools’ first four-year high school at the end of the<br />

19th century and later educated elementary students.<br />

“The old schoolhouse will continue to be a link to the<br />

past as we move forward to the future,” said Lockbourne<br />

Mayor Christie Ward.<br />

The brick building closed as an elementary school in the<br />

early 1950s. Some former students attended the event and<br />

shared memories.<br />

“The Korean War was going on. It was 1951 and we had<br />

bomb drills instead of fire drills,” said Frank Peters. “My<br />

dad was on the school board for 22 years and I came down<br />

here to school on Wendell Herron’s bus. I totally enjoyed<br />

being in this school. I remember going out at lunch to the<br />

pump to get water and you left your own cup here.”<br />

Carolyn Forshey Young, who graduated from Hamilton<br />

Township High School in 1958 and now lives in Florida,<br />

said she still considers Lockbourne home.<br />

“I remember one year when there was a big snowfall,”<br />

said Young. “All the kids in town got together and started<br />

rolling a snowball at one end of the town and then ended<br />

up at the other end with a gigantic snowball. You could do<br />

something like that back then.”<br />

1950s, look at art work of a cardinal painted by<br />

Young’s mother when the family resided in<br />

Lockbourne.<br />

Young and Lockbourne Village Administrator Jane<br />

McJunkin took time to look at artifacts scattered throughout<br />

the room, including a small painting of a cardinal created<br />

by Young’s mother, Mary Forshey, when the family<br />

lived in Lockbourne decades ago.<br />

McJunkin attended first grade in the former schoolhouse<br />

and updated everyone on current village activities<br />

“The Korean War was going on. It was 1951<br />

and we had bomb drills instead of fire drills. My<br />

dad was on the school board for 22 years and I<br />

came down here to school on Wendell Herron’s<br />

bus. I totally enjoyed being in this school. I<br />

remember going out at lunch to the pump to get<br />

water and you left your own cup here.”<br />

- Frank Peters<br />

involving the building as it now serves as an event center.<br />

“We have really renovated a lot in this old school,” said<br />

McJunkin. “We’ve had a graduation party here and a<br />

birthday party. There were the fish fries and a motorcycle<br />

club event. We already have a wedding scheduled for next<br />

year. We’re trying to raise funds now to install a deck outside<br />

and a handicap ramp. We’re thinking where council<br />

now meets to turn it into a small museum when council<br />

starts meeting here.”<br />

Hamilton Local Schools Superintendent Mark Tyler<br />

helped to bridge the old with the new and provided an<br />

update of what the district now offers to its students as<br />

they prepare for life after graduation, whether it is enlisting<br />

in the military, attending college, or heading straight<br />

to work.<br />

“This building is incredible to me and how quickly this<br />

occurred,” said Tyler. “They (village organizers) had a<br />

vision and here it is. A lot has changed in the schools.<br />

Some changes are great, some are less than desirable, but<br />

the pride and the passion has not gone away. There is a<br />

special kind of bond in this community.”<br />

Blondie (and her tooth) is currently<br />

available for adoption. This 7-yearold<br />

lovely lady had some dental<br />

issues that may have been causing<br />

her distress. Those issues have been<br />

addressed at the shelter. She has<br />

lived with cats and prefers women. If<br />

you have a quiet home and are looking<br />

for a companion that may take<br />

some time to trust you and her new<br />

surroundings, meet with Blondie.<br />

She is worth your love and is up for adoption at the<br />

Franklin County Dog Shelter.<br />

FYI: franklincountydogs.com<br />

Blue Jay was wandering the<br />

streets in Ironton, Ohio before<br />

someone rescued him. He is a<br />

sweet boy who loves people and<br />

loves attention. He doesn’t understand<br />

personal space and likes to<br />

run fast. If you’re looking for a cuddle<br />

buddy, contact Colony Cats<br />

about adopting Blue Jay.<br />

FYI: colonycats.org<br />

pets of the week<br />

Han Solo is a funny boy. When he<br />

was in a foster home, he took a liking<br />

to socks. He would steal all his foster<br />

mom’s socks and collect them. In<br />

addition to his fondness for socks,<br />

Han Solo is a super affectionate guy.<br />

He is about 5 years old and eager to<br />

find a loving forever family. Adopt<br />

him from Colony Cats.<br />

FYI: colonycats.org<br />

Willow is a very sweet and loving<br />

girl. This 5-month-old kitten is very<br />

affectionate. She loves belly rubs<br />

and ear scratches. Willow gets along<br />

well with children and other cats. She<br />

would make a lovely addition to any<br />

home. Adopt Willow from Friends for<br />

Life Animal Haven.<br />

FYI: fflah.org<br />

www.columbusmessenger.com<br />

These furry friends are available for<br />

adoption at local rescues and shelters.<br />
