Hildebrand named LoCI warden

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

One of Madison County’s own now

heads up London Correctional Institution

(LoCI).

On Oct. 10, Jenny Hildebrand took the

helm as warden, replacing Norm Robinson.

Hildebrand has lived in the county for

25 years, residing with her husband,

Drew, on the Hildebrand family farm. In

taking the job as warden at LoCI, she returns

to what she considers to be her work

home.

In her 32.5-year career with the Ohio

Department of Rehabilitation and Correction

(ODRC), Hildebrand has worked at

seven prisons, two of them twice, including

LoCI and Madison Correctional, also

in London. Her previous stint at LoCI,

from December 1995 to May 1997, was as

administrative assistant to Warden

Melody Turner.

“It’s really good to be back,” she said.

“London Correctional is a great place to

work—the character and history of the facility,

its place in the community, the variety

of programs.”

Hildebrand plans to keep that legacy

Jenny Hildebrand is the new warden at London Correctional Institution.

rolling, focusing on programming for offenders,

recruitment and development of

staff, and community service.

“We’ll work to increase educational opportunities

and vocational programs, ensuring

we have programs in place for offenders

to receive good trainable job skills

at-large seats. Joshua Peters and John J.

Stahl appear to have secured two of the

three seats, earning 30.17 percent of the

vote and 23.69 percent of the vote, respectively.

Who gets the third seat is yet to be

determined. As the tallies now stand,

Brenda S. Russell has 742 (21.78 percent)

votes to Gregory S. Eades’s 740 votes (21.72

City council considers abortion ban legislation

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

London city council is considering legislation

that would prevent anyone from

procuring or performing abortions within

city limits and declare the city to be a sanctuary

for the unborn.

Council member Anthony Smith sponsored

the proposed legislation which was introduced

at the Oct. 7 council meeting.

Twenty-five individuals spoke in favor of the

proposal at that meeting. Discussion on the

matter has since moved to council’s finance

and safety committee meetings.

While the legislation was not on the

agenda at council’s regular meeting on Oct.

21, several residents attended the meeting

to express their opinions on the matter.

Tiffany Flax, who described herself as

Ham Loaf

pro-life and deeply religious, said she realized

a different perspective after talking to

a friend who had been assaulted and raped.

The friend terminated the resulting pregnancy

because she did not want the guilt

and reminder of the incident, even though

her family wanted her to keep the child.

Flax said she is concerned that the proposed

legislation would restrict a woman’s

ability to receive healthcare that is protected

under the U.S. Constitution. She also

said the words “felon” and “criminal” used

in the proposed legislation to describe anyone

who aids an abortion would be forever

tied to those individuals, as well as any

woman who sought an abortion.

“I want you to think about the kind of

words you guys are putting out there, and

how this woman would feel—any woman—

DRIVE THRU

DINNER

that had been through such a horrendous

experience,” Flax said to council. “If you do

pass this, I want you guys to know, this

community will see those words attached to

all of you forever.”

Wearing a puritan costume, London resident

Vance Daniels spoke out against the

proposal in a satirical fashion, saying the

legislation “does not do enough to take us

back to 17th century puritan society.” He

suggested including resolutions requiring

ugly people to wear masks, children to be

tethered so they don’t stray to sin, and

books about magic and wizardry to be

burned.

He said his wife agrees with his stance

and would have attended the meeting, but

that “as a woman, she is the bearer of original

sin, and she is chained properly at home

in the family barn with her chastity belts secured.”

Resident Lacy Smith said she is in full

support of the proposed legislation.

“Even if some people—some few people—

will attach something negative to (council),

overwhelmingly London will attach the fact

that you would protect life and the future of

London residents if you do pass this legislation.”

Resident Danielle Fredette also favors

the proposal, saying it is what is best for the

city.

“It’s not like we’re shutting down some

abortion clinic or something. We’re saying,

‘We don’t want to do this here,’” she said.

“We don’t want to be on the wrong side of

this spiritual issue. We don’t want to invite

prepare them for release,” she said.

She also wants to maintain and create programming for offenders

who will not be returning to society. Of the 1,975 offenders currently

residing at LoCI, 465 are serving life terms.

“We want them to have opportunities, too, to make sure that

everyone’s needs are holistically met with our population,” she said.

Similarly, Hildebrand prioritizes looking after her staff.

“I’ve always had a passion for programming and also development

of staff. I feel strongly about mentoring,” she said.

LoCI is experiencing a significant vacancy

rate in corrections officers and other

positions at the prison, including medical

care. Recruitment is a big push now.

“For me, DRC has been a great career,”

Hildebrand said. “I always tell people, it’s

like our own little world. There are so many

avenues you can take—business, medical,

mental health, security, food service, education,

administration. The sky’s the limit of

the diverse positions you can go into with

DRC. I’ve been fortunate with my career.

I’ve loved every single one of my jobs.”

Hildebrand got her start in the field as a

pre-trial release officer in Kentucky after

graduating from Eastern Kentucky University

in 1987 with a degree in corrections and

administration of justice. Her first job with

ODRC was as a correction officer at the

Franklin Pre-Release Center in Columbus.

She said the job set the foundation for what

has become her life’s work.

Over the past three decades, Hildebrand

has worked in all facets of corrections, from

security and unit management to mental

health, accreditation, and business administration.

She has worked with male and fe-

ABORTION

Continued from page 1

male offenders at all security levels. Prior to taking the reins at

LoCI, she headed up the Franklin Medical Center, a 500-bed facility

in Columbus for incarcerated adults.

One of the many highlights of Hildebrand’s career is her involvement

in energy, conservation and sustainability efforts across the

state’s corrections system. She developed a sustainability plan to save

energy, increase efficiency, and increase recycling and conservation

efforts, establishing partnerships with the Columbus Zoo, Department

of Wildlife and others, as well as developing offender programming

related to the effort. She was the first female chief of ODRC’s

Bureau of Construction, Activation, Maintenance and Sustainability.

As she begins this new chapter in career, Hildebrand is focusing

not only on how to make things better for offenders and staffers,

but also for the surrounding community. Her goal is to build on the

service projects LoCI can do to benefit others outside the prison’s

boundaries.

Over the years, LoCI offenders have made flashcards for school

students, created backdrops for school plays, and cleaned and repaired

used, donated toys for Christmas outreach programs, among

other service projects. The Pets Uniting People Program (PUPP) at

LoCI is an especially successful service program through which offenders

train rescue dogs.

“We want to work with local schools, churches, and other groups

to perform community service,” Hildebrand said. “I look forward to

giving back to the community that I live in.”

For more information or to make a community service request,

call the warden’s office at (740) 852-2454.

ings its authority is derived from the Ohio Revised Code.

Referencing the code, Hitt stated, “In review of the powers

granted to municipal corporations and the powers granted to the

legislative authority of municipal corporations, there is clearly no

authority granted to the city that would allow the regulation of

abortion at the municipal level. In the event that council would approve

the ordinance, such legislation would be unenforceable.”

At the Oct. 7 meeting, Smith characterized Hitt’s concerns regarding

potential lawsuits against the city as fearmongering. He

said other cities have passed similar legislation without legal ramifications.

Council member Carla Blazier countered Smith’s comments,

saying the liability issues are real and need to be examined.

At the Oct. 21 meeting, Comer and several other council members

thanked residents for attending meetings and expressing their

opinions. Comer noted that the proposed legislation will be up for

further discussion at the finance committee meeting on Nov. 8 at

4:30 p.m. and the safety committee meeting on Nov. 9 at 5 p.m. Both

meetings will take place at city hall, 20 S. Walnut St.

and Somerford Township trustees.

Madison-Plains Local Schools’ request for renewal of an income

tax appears to have passed by a narrow margin. The tally was close

for the Madison County Emergency Medical District’s request for a

tax renewal with an increase. Jefferson Township’s attempt at a tax

levy for a new fire station and operating expenses failed 777-1,098.

All other issues on the ballot passed by substantial margins.

The results released by the Madison County Board of Elections

on Election Night are considered unofficial. Still to be counted are

provisional ballots and any outstanding absentee ballots. Absentee

ballots postmarked by Nov. 1 and received by Nov. 12 will be included

in the final tallies. The elections board has until Nov. 23 to

certify the final results of the election.

Elections officials were surprised by the overall voter turnout.

As of Nov. 2, 9,060 of Madison County’s 25,847 registered voters

cast ballots in the Nov. 2 general election. That amounts to a 35

percent voter turnout. In November 2019, the last non-presidential

election, the turnout was 23 percent.

“We were pretty shocked that it was as high as it was. We’re always

happy with a high turnout,” said Abby Metheney, director of

the Madison County Board of Elections.

25th annual Christmas celebration set for Dec. 1

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

After a year off due to the pandemic,

Christmas in South Charleston is back. The

25th annual event, sponsored by the South

Charleston Community Club, will take

place from 4 to 8 p.m. Dec. 1 on and around

Chillicothe Street.

Jennifer McKee, club president, is happy

for the event’s return for two reasons.

“It’s a uniting event for the community

and very children-oriented. It’s a definite

outreach and special time for the village,”

she said. “It’s also the only public fundraiser

for the Community Club, which solely supports

South Charleston Community Park.”

The 2021 version of Christmas in South

Charleston offers many of the traditional elements

of past celebrations, including vendors,

children’s activities, a parade, food

trucks, a bonfire, and the always popular raffle.

Downtown businesses will be open, offering

Christmas-themed sales and activities.

Vendors will be set up inside First Presbyterian

Church, 15 N. Chillicothe St., and

Gilbert’s Youth Center, 65 S. Chillicothe St.

New features for Opera House event

Christmas at the Opera House returns to South Charleston with

a few new twists.

Traditionally, the performance features a community choir, the

Southeastern High School band, and other small vocal and instrumental

ensembles. This year, a children’s dance troupe is in the

mix, too, along with the high school choir.

“We anticipate some other surprise/interesting performances,

but those are not finalized yet,” said Carol Wildman, who is new to

organizing the event but who has provided piano accompaniment

in the past and directed various other choirs and music programs

over the years.

This year’s performance is set for Dec. 4

at 7 p.m. at the Opera House located on the

second floor at town hall, 35 S. Chillicothe

St. The South Charleston Heritage Commission,

which operates and maintains the

opera house, is installing a new stair lift,

making the facility accessible to everyone.

In a change from years past, the commission

is offering one performance time instead

of two. Admission is free. A donation

box will be located in the lobby with all proceeds

going to the commission.

“We’re going with one performance this

year mostly because our numbers for the

community choir are smaller than usual,”

Carol said. “We have 10 to 15 in the choir

this year, about half as many as usual. Most

are returning members.”

She said some who declined to partici-

Christmas at the Opera House on Dec. 4. A community choir,

pate this year cited concerns about COVID-19 risks.

“We are taking as much precautions as we can. We’re spreading

out at rehearsals and all singing in the same direction,” she said.

Carol welcomes anyone who would like to be part of the choir,

can read music, and is comfortable with jumping in and learning

quickly. The group rehearses on Sundays at 5 p.m. at First Presbyterian

Church, 15 N. Chillicothe St. Anyone interested need only

show up to rehearsals.

Likewise, Kim Wildman, Carol’s daughter, welcomes any children

who would like to be part of the dance troupe. Practices take

place on Thursdays (except Thanksgiving) at Gilbert’s Youth Center,

65 S. Chillicothe St.: 5:30-6 p.m. for ages 3-5, 6-6:45 for ages 6-

Village secures state grant for wastewater project

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

The village of South Charleston is on the receiving end of grant

money that will positively impact water quality not only locally but

also in communities along the Little Miami River down to Cincinnati.

At a press conference on Nov. 2 at South Charleston town hall,

Gov. Mike DeWine announced the village is one of 28 communities

around the state to receive funding in a second round of new grants

aimed at improving water infrastructure.

“As a small community, we sometimes find it difficult to compete

with the larger cities when it comes to funding,” said Trecia Waring,

village administrator. “Today, we are going to celebrate a little bit.

We have a win for the little guy.”

Through the new Ohio BUILDS water infrastructure grant program,

South Charleston will receive $641,800 to make improvements

at its wastewater treatment plant, primarily to address

phosphorous control. This funding will be combined with $300,000

from the Ohio Public Works Commission.

Steve Canter, an engineer with Environmental Engineering, the

firm that oversees the village’s water and wastewater plants, said

the project will allow South Charleston to remain compliant with

Ohio Environmental Protection Agency permit requirements.

He explained that Gilroy Ditch in South Charleston is the headwaters

to the Little Miami River. As such, South Charleston is

home to the first wastewater treatment plant that discharges into

that river system.

“So, I view this as not only benefitting the community of South

Charleston but the five counties where the Little Miami River traverses.

That makes up about 1.5 million people that are going to benefit

from our little project here,” Canter said.

The project will maximize the plant’s ability to remove phosphorous

biologically. A chemical treatment process will serve as

backup. Additionally, some of the funds will be used to address

stormwater intrusion into the village’s sanitary sewer system.

DeWine explained that when he took office, he and Lt. Gov. Jon

Husted put an emphasis on clean water. They started with H2Ohio,

a 10-year plan to reduce algal blooms on Lake Erie and other bodies

of water statewide.

With the receipt of federal dollars related to COVID-19 pandemic

relief, DeWine’s office sought and received permission to launch another

clean water initiative. The Ohio BUILDS water infrastructure

program sets aside $250 million to focus on clean water, wastewater

systems, and water issues related to lead pipes.

DeWine described the federal funding as one-time money that

the state is spending on one-time expenses—capitol improvements

to water infrastructure systems around the state.

While some of the grants are going to larger cities, he said, “The

vast majority of the grants are going to smaller communities.”

Sam Stucky, president of South Charleston’s village commission,

“I just thought it would be nice to get the kids involved

in something,” said Kim who grew up in South

Charleston and owns Dance Loft Plus in Xenia. “I

wanted to give back to the community now that I’ve

moved back to the area.”

The State of Ohio is awarding a $641,800

grant to the village of South Charleston for

improvements to the wastewater treatment

plant. On hand for the Nov. 2 announcement

were: (from left) Jessica Hiser, village

clerk; Melanie Flax Wilt, Clark County commissioner;

Trecia Waring, village manager;

vice president.

said he is very thankful for the grant. He

said the project has been sitting on the village’s

table for a long time, stuck for lack of

funding. Now, it can finally move forward.

“This is big for a village of roughly 1,700

people,” he said.

DeWine’s office rolled out the first round

Ohio BUILDS water infrastructure funding

the week of Oct. 25, awarding $94 million in

grants for 54 projects in 60 counties. The

second round encompasses a total of $44

million in grants for 28 projects in 28 counties.

Additional rounds are planned in the

coming weeks.

Toddler and preschool storytimes continue at Houston Library

Houston Library, 5 W. Jamestown St., South Charleston, is hosting

storytimes on Thursdays through Dec. 9 (except Nov. 25). At 10

a.m., the focus is on children ages 2 and 3 years old and their parents/caregivers.

At 11 a.m., the focus is on children ages 4 and 5

years old and their parents/caregivers. Anyone

who has children in both age groups can

choose one storytime to attend. Space is limited.

Call the library to pre-register.

Participants are learning general dance movements

with hints of ballet. Each age group will perform a number

at Christmas at the Opera House.

“The movements are easy and quick to learn and fun

to do. It’s a creative dance style,” Kim said.

For more information about the dance troupe, contact

Kim via text at (937) 605-1479 or via Facebook Messenger

Tax relief for seniors and disabled veterans

Ohio’s Homestead Exemption allows qualifying senior citizens

and permanently and totally disabled Ohioans to reduce their property

taxes by exempting $25,000 of the home’s market value. For

as though it is worth $75,000. The amount of tax savings is based

on the home’s location.

place of residence as of Jan. 1 of the year they apply for the exemption

• is at least 65 years old or will reach age 65 during the current

Benji and Delilah available for adoption

The following are among the pets up for

adoption at the Humane Society of Madison

County. If you are interested in adopting a

pet, fill out an application online at

www.hsmcohio.org or call the shelter at

(614) 879-8368.

Benji

Benji is a young

dog that came to the

shelter as a stray.

His approximate

birth date is Nov.

27, 2020. He stayed

in a home for a few

days, and this is

what the family

sent about his experience:

“Hi, there. I’m

Benji, and I’m full of love, kisses, and tons

of energy. I get along with everyone, and I

mean everyone. I get so excited when I meet

new people that I just can’t control myself,

and I jump and try to say hello, but it comes

out as a bark.

“I love to go on walks and explore every-

thing around me. I just can’t sniff enough.

You do need to watch me though, because I

also like to eat everything I come across on

the ground, and I mean everything. Because

I love to go on walks so much, I do tend to

pull on my leash a bit, so I will need some

training in this area.

“Speaking of food, I love to eat, and I love

my treats. If you tell me to ‘sit and wait’

while you get my bowl ready, I will sit like a

gentleman, but the minute you put my food

down, watch out, because I will go for it like

it’s my last meal. So, maybe only let adults

feed me.

“I know all the basic commands—sit, stay,

heel, stop, enough and drop it. Because of all

my energy and because I think I’m a lapdog

and not a big dog, I would probably do best

in a home with a fenced yard and no young

children. Just look at my sweet face. I know

you will love adding me to your family.”

Benji doesn’t mind being around cats and

ignores them for the most part. He is full of

life and loves to play with other dogs. Although

Benji plays well with other dogs, he

does not like to share his things (food, treats

opportunities to help

Tax-Aide preparers

The AARP Foundation Tax-Aide program

is seeking volunteer tax preparers for

next year. Tax-Aide provides free tax preparation,

primarily for senior citizens, at the

Madison County Emergency Management

Agency in London.

Anyone who does his or her own taxes on

a program such as TurboTax is an ideal candidate

for the volunteer opportunity. Volunteers

receive IRS-approved training, use

IRS-provided computers and are mentored

throughout the tax season.

Volunteers save often financially pressed

senior citizens the cost of paying a private

preparer and provide a calm, reassuring

and steady hand in a sometimes stressful

situation.

or toys) with other dogs, so he would need

to be the only dog in his forever home. On

playdates, food, treats and toys should not

be in the mix. Benji is a smart pooch and

takes cues very well from people. Give this

baby a chance, and you won’t regret it.

Adoption fees for dogs vary: shelter dogs

are $150, prison dogs are $200, puppies are

$250, and popular pure-breeds are $400.

The price includes: a Home Again microchip,

set of shots, deworming, heartworm

testing (if old enough), spay or neuter, and

a one-year rabies shot (if old enough). All

dogs adopted must leave with a county license

at an additional cost of $17. Fees can

be paid by cash or credit card.

Delilah

Delilah arrived

on June 11, 2021.

She is a tuxedo kitty

and has an estimated

birthday of

Dec. 11, 2020. During

her first few

days at the shelter,

she was really

scared. To help her

gain confidence, a

wonderful volunteer

took her to her home so she could be in a

home setting and learn to trust people.

Delilah is making great strides in her foster

home. She is now more loving and social.

Delilah is not around other animals, but

she is loving the human attention. Her foster

momma reports that she perks up and

comes running to be petted and is OK with

being picked up. She will require time to get

used to new surroundings and a new family,

but once she is comfortable, she will be her

family’s lifelong best friend.

The adoption fee is $80 for kittens up to

6 months old and $60 for cats 7 months and

older. It includes: a FeLV/FIV test, spay or

neuter, set of shots, deworming, and a oneyear

rabies shot (if old enough). Fees can be

paid by cash or credit card.

Whereas, This 28 th day of September, 2021, the Clerk of this board gave notice to the Board of

County Commissioners of Madison County, Ohio, on filing with her of a petition signed by Madison

Request to place existing ditch, to be known as the Tope Ditch on County maintenance. The ditch

Whereas, It appears to the Board that the proper bond has been filed with the Clerk, approved, conditioned

for the payment of costs of notices, plus any other incidental expenses, except the costs incurred by the

Engineer in making his preliminary reports, if the prayer of the petition is not granted, or if the petition is

for any cause dismissed, unless the Board decides to pay the Engineer’s costs from the bond in accordance

with Section 6131.09 of the Revised Code; therefore, be it

With the Commissioners Clerk of the County, the substance and prayer of which said petition is, that

the construction of the improvement is necessary, will benefit the petitioner(s), and will be conducive

to the public welfare, and prays for the making of such improvement on the following course and

termini, to-wit:

The location of the ditch is as follows: Commencing at the eastern property line of Johathan

Radabaugh and going west through Radabaugh and through Judy and James Davis to the bridge

on Foster Redman Road, approximately 0.5 miles north of State Route 323, and going in a south

westerly direction crossing Danville Road and ending at the existing Roth Ditch #106. Also being

northern right of way line of State Route 323, for a distance of 5360 feet. Also starting at station 25 +

40 and going in a northerly direction to the Sidhu Farms, LLC property line for a distance of 1140

feet.

banks except for the north bank for 2535’ from Foster Redman Road and the east bank for 1155’ for

the section of ditch going to the north.
