Staff Writer

The presentation of the annual financial

review for the South-Western City

Schools District took place at the Dec. 6

board of education meeting.

According to Treasurer High Garside,

the fiscal year 2020-21 saw a slight

increase in revenue, a slight decrease in

expenditures and the projected stability of

the district’s financial outlook.

strong in the South-Western City Schools District,” he

said.

There was a rise in revenue in fiscal year 2020-21 of

1 percent, which roughly translates to an additional $3

million in the general fund. The district’s total general

fund revenue for that fiscal year was $292.6 million.

Garside said the general fund operation budget is

supported by revenues from real estate taxes, state

funding, property tax allocations, public utility personal

property tax and other sources.

The largest source of revenue, he said, comes from

the state of Ohio.

“Just a little over 50 percent of our funds come from

the state, the state’s funding formula.”

Garside explained that the allocation is determined

on a per pupil basis and said the district is no longer

considered a capped district per the state funding allocation

formula. He projects the district will receive

additional funding due to the passage of the Fair

School Funding Plan (FSFP) but added those dollars

are only in the budget for two years.

The district could receive upwards of $151 million

annually in state aid should the FSFP be fully funded

over a six-year period.

Garside said some of the flatness of the revenue

could be contributed to lower than expected interest

earnings.

“Interest earnings were down $4.6 million due to

very weak interest rates from the pandemic and all the

things that happened with that,” he said. “It really

hurt the bottom market as far as what we can get and

what we can invest our dollars in.”

The treasurer said he modeled those lower earnings

in the future forecast to make sure the district is not

expecting more than they will actually receive.

There was a decrease in the overall expenditures by

2.8 percent in fiscal year 2020-21; the total general

fund expenditures for this fiscal year was $271.4 million.

Garside said much of that decrease was due to offsetting

costs from the America Rescue Plan’s

Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief

Fund.

Of the general fund expenditures, Garside said 64

cents, or 64 percent, out of every dollar is devoted to

instructional activities and 8 cents, or 8 percent, out of

every dollar is spent for instructional support.

“Seventy two cents of every dollar goes to instructional

support; that is really where the rubber meets

the road,” he said.

He said the capital projects fund will see more activity

in the 2021-22 fiscal year as they put the finishing

touches on the $193 million Ohio Facilities

Construction Commission Middle School Build Project.

Garside added the district was not hit hard with

inflation costs for this building project as the costs and

fees were contracted years ago.

“We really dodged a bullet there with this project,”

he said after the meeting.

He said there was one anomaly with the enterprise

funds, which consist of food service, uniform school

supplies, Rotary funds, and summer school funds.

“Our food service department actually spent more

than it brought in (during the 2020-21 fiscal year),”

said Garside.

He said that was due to the duration when students

were in the virtual learning format.

“We actually spent less on purchasing food that

year, but we also had to continue to pay our staff their

wages and benefits,” said Garside.

He said the department remained stable financially

because they have retained positive cash balances.

Garside credited supervisor Lisa Hamrick for pulling

the department through that brief period when the

expenditures surpassed the revenue.

District officials project the food services

department will see an increase in revenue

in the upcoming fiscal year.

Garside said though the district’s overall

revenue is flat, they continue to maintain a

positive cash balance of 5 to 10 months. He

said the district sees no need to request an

operating levy at this point in time.

In other news, the board of education

approved the hiring of Evan Debo and Dr.

Susan Hayward to the positions of executive

director of communications and community

relations and assistant superintendent

of personnel, respectively.

The board also set the date and time for

the tax budget hearing for fiscal year 2022-

23 at 6:45 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 3 with the

organizational meeting immediately following.

Township Focus

By Dedra Cordle

Staff Writer

Jackson Township trustees have

approved the annual appropriations budget

at its meeting on Nov. 23.

The 2022 budget calls for the appropriation

of nearly $30 million, an increase of

more than $8 million from the previous

year.

According to township officials, the rise

in appropriated dollars are attributed to

planned wage increases for all of its

employees, the rising cost of inflation for

capital improvement project materials, and

the likely purchase of a ladder truck for the

fire department.

In the $30 million budget, the largest

financial appropriations come at the fire

department, which will spend approximately

$16 million on salaries and benefits

for its staff of close to 100. Those monies

also include a board approved 6.6 percent

cost-of-living raise and the hiring of new

staff. The board of trustees approved the

hiring of one new full-time firefighter and

the cost-of-living increase at its meeting on

Dec. 7.

Fiscal officer Ron Grossman said the 6.6

percent wage increase was determined by

the latest figures in the consumer price

index.

Additional fire department expenses

included in the 2022 budget are: $235,000

for HazMat meters and equipment;

$225,000 in fleet vehicle and fire apparatus

repairs; $120,000 for station vehicles;

$45,000 for a battalion truck; $29,000 for

fire hose replacement; and $18,500 for

turnout gear maintenance.

Deputy Fire Chief Shawn Quincel said

the department also plans to purchase a

$1.5 million ladder truck but payments on

the ladder will not likely start until the following

year.

Other capital improvements slated for

the fire department include new lockers at

Station 201 and 202; new flooring and a

new sprinkler system at Station 201; concrete

replacement in the bays at Station

203 and a kitchen remodel at Station 202.

Grossman said many of these purchases

and repairs were only made possible due to

the passage of Issue 19, a limited term fire

replacement levy that voters approved in

2020.

“The 4-mill levy really put the fire

department in a good shape financially,” he

said.

He said the department will collect

between $4.9 and $5.8 million annually

throughout the duration of the five-year

term.

He added that the fire department, as

well as every other department in the

township, will continue to put aside money

for future reserves.

The budget calls for the appropriation of

$4.1 million in the general fund.

According to Township Administrator

Shane Farnsworth, the township has budgeted

for a variety of projects, large and

small.

“This entire budget is really all about

maintenance,” he said. “We are maintaining

our roads, we are maintaining our

buildings, we are providing upgrades to our

fire stations that were put aside under

deferred maintenance when we were

unsure about the health of our fire fund.

“We are not spending an exorbitant

amount of money in this budget, but we do

have to spend to maintain the life of these

buildings and roads and projects for years

to come.”

Included in the capital improvements

are $30,000 for the parking lot resurfacing

and bike trail maintenance at Tanglebrook

Park, $20,000 to seal the parking lot blacktop

at the administrative office; $2,500 for

technology upgrades at the administrative

office; and $20,000 for a pavilion at

Tanglebrook Park.

The latter project, said Farnsworth,

may be more of a “wish-list” item than an

actual expense for 2022.

“We will see how that could work,” he

said. “We have not yet looked at what the

design could be, how it should be used, and

www.columbusmessenger.com

Trustees approve annual appropriations budget

Fire officials see benefit in

medication vending machine

how we could secure the property when not

in use.”

Additional appropriations include

$50,000 for miscellaneous capital improvement

projects and $30,000 for a new website.

Farnsworth said the administrative

building is slated to receive new windows

as the ones currently in place have lived

beyond their usefulness.

“They are really difficult to open and the

gears inside are shredded,” he said.

He said the goal is to purchase energyefficient

windows and have them installed

by the spring.

The road and bridge fund has appropriations

of $875,254 for wage increases,

equipment upgrades, and planned maintenance

projects.

Farnworth said the township continues

to make debt payments on repairs to

Borror, Hiner and White roads. He added

they will continue to seek grants to help

offset repair or resurfacing costs to township

roads.

He said the township is hoping to hear

from the Ohio Public Works Commission

soon regarding small government funding

approval for repairs to a number of subdivision

streets.

A medication vending machine has

been delivered and is ready for use at the

Pleasant Township Fire Department.

The announcement was made at a

recent board of trustees meeting.

According to township officials, the

machine will make restocking supplies

after runs easier for the firefighters. The

vending machine will be used after

returning from runs to restock with necessary

items such as medication prior to

going out on the next emergency. The

machine will dispense the medication and

all of the tracking of the medications is

done right inside the machine, which is

also tied into the station’s Internet and

systems.

The vending machine will help streamline

the process for dispensing these necessary

supplies in a timely fashion to the

department.

In other news, Pleasant Township’s

annual Pancakes with Santa has been

cancelled this year. The fire station will

still be accepting and providing toys for

the Firefighter for Kids drive. Donations

of toys can be dropped off at the Pleasant

Township Fire Department. Individuals

in need of assistance for the holidays, can

contact the fire department during regular

business hours at 614-877-4375.

The Pleasant Township trustees have

been receiving complaints from residents

about not having their recyclables picked

up. The trustees want to remind residents

that all trash and recyclables must be put

out by 7 a.m. on their appropriate pickup

day in order to be collected.

The Solid Waste Authority of Central

Ohio is looking to potentially do a nonfranklin

county rates change. They will be

using a public approval process and will

be creating a southwest rate advisory

board, which would invite participation

from one individual to represent each

community on the board. Trustee Ed

Sheets will be representing Pleasant

Township.

Homemade wreaths can help to brighten the holiday

Wreaths adorn homes primarily during

the holidays. Wreaths can be purchased

premade, but making a wreath on your

own can make the holidays even more fun.

One of the easiest ways to make a wreath

is to design it around a circular floral foam

form. Gather supplies to make the wreath.

For traditional wreaths, supplies will

include sprigs of evergreen (real or artificial),

ribbon, floral wire, bows, and artificial

berries. Working around the foam

form, arrange the boughs of evergreen,

using the floral wire to wrap or pin into the

foam itself. Keep the layers coming until

you get the desired coverage.

From the Heart – Keeping the

Tradition of the Private Practice Alive

The healthcare landscape has changed significantly

in recent years, and further complicated by

a world-wide pandemic. In the Columbus area,

most of the area cardiologists are now employed

or had their practices acquired by one of the large

healthcare corporations.

In contrast, Ohio Heart Group, led by Dr.

Manmohan Katapadi, is a private practice that has

not only survived these market forces, but has

thrived. This is only possible due to their patients’

allegiance, trust, and preference for the personalized,

efficient, and effective care they receive

from this practice.

Dr. Katapadi exudes a passion for excellence

team of specialized providers and staff with the

The City Beat

Council OKs ordinance to help Town Center businesses

www.columbusmessenger.com

By Andrea Cordle

Grove City Editor

Several businesses in the Grove City Town Center are

making improvements and the city is helping.

At the Dec. 6 meeting, Grove City Council approved two

pieces of legislation that will grant an exceptional circumstance

and increase the maximum award amount under

the Town Center Commercial Revitalization Grant

Program.

The Town Center Commercial Revitalization Grant

Program is a reimbursement program designed to assist

business and property owners with improving commercial

buildings and properties for the betterment of the city. The

program typically holds a maximum grant amount of

$10,000, though some grant awards are in the amount of

$5,000.

According to the program guidelines, any property

owner or business owner within the Town Center core may

apply for the grant program. Eligible improvements

include exterior updates to facades, exterior updates to

maintain downtown character, utility improvements, and

improvements that would protect the life, safety, and welfare

of the building occupants. All applicants must be up to

date with their real estate property taxes and be in

good standing with all local, regional, state, and

federal taxing authorities.

Kyle Rauch, development director for the city of

Grove City, said the property owner of Grove City

Brewing Co. and Plum Run Winery was seeking

special consideration for a $30,000 grant for the

renovation of the property.

According to the grant program guidelines, an

exceptional circumstance could be made if the

improvement would substantially enhance the

vitality and appearance of the Town Center and

Broadway corridor. The project for the property at

3946 Broadway results in the enhancement of the

appearance of the Town Center through facade and

patio updates. The owners also upgraded the HVAC

system for an overall cost of $60,300.

Rauch said the eligibility application for the project

was approved near the end of 2020, but COVID-

19 had disrupted the grant approval process. This

grant award will be for 2020 and the applicant has

agreed to give up grants for program years 2021 and 2022.

The property owner of 4326 Broadway, known as Bill’s

on Broadway, was also granted an exceptional circumstance

for a complete renovation of the property. The property

owner was granted an award of $10,000 from the city.

For more information on the Town Center Commercial

Revitalization Grant Program, visit grovecityohio.gov.

In related news, Christie Laffin, owner of The Farm to

Table business in the Town Center, asked council to consider

a change to the Buy Local Certificate Program, also

known as Hometown Dollars.

In the fall of 2020, council approved $75,000 in public

funds for the gift certificate program. In April of this year,

council set aside an additional $50,000 for the program.

The Buy Local Certificate Program aims to support and

market businesses by encouraging patrons to shop and

dine at local establishments. It was created to help small

business owners offset the financial effects of the pandemic.

The program allows consumers to purchase a buy one,

get one certificate from the Grove City Area Chamber of

Commerce, who manages the program. There is a limit of

two $25 certificate purchases per household.

Laffin suggested increasing that amount to $50 so a

household could get up to $100 in goods or services from

local establishments. She said there are unused funds for

the program that could be utilized.

Though council did not act on the matter, councilman

Ted Berry did suggest that the chamber help to spread the

word that there is money left to spend.

Q: How often should someone with diabetes

get an eye exam?

A: Someone with diabetes should see an eye care professional at least

once a year for a comprehensive dilated eye exam.

Q: How can diabetes affect my vision?

A: Over time, diabetes damages small blood vessels throughout the body,

including the retina. Diabetic retinopathy occurs when these tiny blood

vessels leak blood and other fluids. This causes the retinal tissue to swell,

resulting in cloudy or blurred vision. The condition usually affects both

eyes. The longer a person has diabetes, the more likely they will develop

diabetic retinopathy. If left untreated, diabetic retinopathy can cause

blindness. (AOA)

Symptoms include: seeing spots or “floaters”, blurred vision, and difficulty

seeing at night.

Schedule your diabetic eye exam today

with Dr. Morris.

In Entertainment

“Single All the Way” is sure to warm the heart

I am not someone who makes fun of

those who enjoy an escape into the

enchanting land of the holiday romantic

comedy, but I am also not someone who

typically wants to spend time in that world

either.

In my opinion, they are the schmaltziest

romantic comedies put on steroids — triple

the fluff, quadruple the sentimentality, and

raise the level of sweetness to an intolerable

degree. They are very much too much,

which I am beginning to suspect may be a

part of the general appeal.

With these closely-held feelings in mind,

it came as a big surprise to me when I

found myself desiring a journey into the

world of unnatural holiday romantic comedy

escapist fare. I think I might have to lay

the blame at the feet of Wham!

It was a few weeks back when the band’s

poppy albeit sad hit “Last Christmas”

spent hours running through my head,

which in turn made me want to revisit the

aptly titled 2019 British film that was

inspired by this song and the work of the

late and great George Michael. Since it

wasn’t streaming for free on any platforms,

I placed “Last Christmas” into my queue at

the library and then was suddenly compelled

to look for more of its kind until my

mental list of “holiday romantic comedies

to watch” started to rival that of the 24-

hour lineup on the Hallmark channel.

During this bizarre snowball effect to

which I had little control of my burgeoning

holiday romantic comedy impulses, I came

across a new film on Netflix called “Single

All the Way.” While I quickly realized that

news and notes

Volunteers sought at food pantry

The Grove City Food Pantry is looking

for volunteers. The pantry is located at

2710 Columbus St. in Grove City. It serves

families in Grove City, Orient, Harrisburg

and Galloway. Volunteers are needed to

work various times and days. Food donations

are also needed. Those interested in

volunteering for the Grove City Food

Pantry or making a food or monetary donation

can email managers@grovecityfoodpantry.org.

I am not exactly the target demographic for

this movie — it is directed more toward gay

men — it just looked so sweet that I couldn’t

resist its lure.

“Single All the Way” does not break any

new ground in regard to the material within

the traditional holiday romantic comedy,

but it is groundbreaking in a way because

it does not succumb to the popular tropes

that so many films that feature gay people,

or specifically gay couples, do. In this film,

there are no unaccepting friends or families,

nor are there any awkward coming out

moments. There are no side eyes or harmful

words tossed their way when out and

about with their potential partners, showing

affecting in public as others do. Instead,

“Single All the Way” is just an unapologetically

happy flick that is funny and delightful

and a true holiday gift for all.

Infusing the film with most of its potent

charm is Michael Urie and Philemon

Chambers who play longtime friends and

roommates Peter and Nick, respectively.

Despite having a “meet cute” moment upon

their arrival in L.A. years prior, they have

decided to keep their relationship strictly

platonic though both have harbored crushes

on the other from time to time.

When the film begins, the perpetually

single Peter is finally in a romantic relationship

with a dreamy cardiologist who is

quickly stealing his heart (lots of heart pun

jokes to start the film — always a good sign).

Believing their relationship to be serious,

he invites Tim (Steven Lund) to join him in

New Hampshire for Christmas with his

family and is ecstatic when he accepts the

request.

As things are apt to do, real life (and

uncovered lies) brings an abrupt end to

Peter’s blossoming new relationship, leaving

him brokenhearted and wavering in

going back to see his well-intentioned but

meddling loved ones. “They always see (his

singleness) as a problem to be solved,” he

laments to Nick.

Knowing that Nick has no plans for the

holidays, Peter begs him to travel to across

the country in order to pretend to be a couple

to appease his family, a fantastic

ensemble cast led by Kathy Najimy who

plays his mother Carole (as in “Christmas

Carole”), Jennifer Coolidge as his eccentric

Aunt Sandy, and Jennifer Robertson as his

upbeat and uptight sister Lisa.

When the duo arrive in the small ski

town that runs primarily on holiday cheer,

their plans of romantic subterfuge crumble

when Carole announces that she has

already set Peter up on a blind date with

her personal trainer James (Luke

Macfarlane). Knowing his mother’s obsession

with his dating life, Peter agrees to go

on what is sure to be a disastrous date. But

just as Peter realizes that time spent with

James might not be all that bad, the rest of

his family becomes convinced that Nick is

the right man for Peter — and they are

going to do everything in their power to

make sure these two realize they are in

love.

What makes “Single All the Way” such a

fun watch is how it combines some of the

best tropes in romantic comedies, not just

holiday themed ones. It has meddling families,

squabbling

families, families

coming together for

a singular purpose,

longing looks, a

wrench in the plan,

homesickness, and

the delightful

friends to lovers aspect. In this film, however,

there is some question as to whether

Peter and Nick will get together as both

have reservations about possibly losing

their friendship should any potential

romantic relationship go sour.

While we all ultimately know how it will

end, the cast makes it a blast to get to that

point, infusing the film at nearly every

scene with warmth and humor and joy. You

can tell that everyone is having a great

time on this set, and that sense of enjoyment

translates to the viewer as well.

Though not a perfect film — there are

pacing issues and some clunky dialogue —

“Single All the Way” is an infectiously joyful

movie, one that is sure to warm the

heart of any true holiday romcom lover,

and possibly even the ones who are slowly

thawing to its awesome powers of feelgoodness.

Metro Parks kicks off 49th annual Winter Hike Series

By Kristy Zurbrick

Staff Writer

Go on your own time or join other hikers

at designated times—or do both! The 49th

annual Winter Hike Series offers lots of

options for getting out into nature during

the year’s colder months.

Hosted by Columbus and Franklin

County Metro Parks, the upcoming hike

series encourages folks to visit some or all

of 18 parks in the system, three of which

cross over into Madison County. The program

runs from December through

January.

While participants can hike any park at

any time during the three-month period,

the park system is highlighting certain

parks each month and offering opportunities

to gather with other hikers.

In December, the featured parks are

Battelle Darby Creek, Blacklick Woods,

Highbanks, Homestead, and Inniswood.

Participants can enjoy twinkling light displays

and hot chocolate from 5 to 7 p.m. on

Sundays at these parks. Additionally,

evening lantern walks and hot chocolate

will be offered at Chestnut Ridge Dec. 17-

18.

In January, the featured parks will offer

refreshments from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on certain

days: Blendon Woods (Jan. 8, chicken

noodle soup), Sharon Woods (Jan. 9, shredded

chicken sandwiches), Scioto Audubon

(Jan. 15, hot dogs), Clear Creek (Jan. 22,

doughnuts), Prairie Oaks (Jan. 23, cinnamon

rolls), and Three Creeks (Jan. 29,

sausage biscuits).

In February, the featured parks are

Glacier Ridge, Pickerington Ponds, Rocky

Fork, Scioto Grove, Slate Run, and Walnut

Woods. Participants can search for and

take home wooden ornaments on trails at

these parks, plus enjoy campfires from 10

a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sundays.

Anyone who completes hikes at seven or

more of the parks earns a hiking patch. It’s

a new patch this year, featuring a fox

design. Anyone who completes all 18 hikes

and signs up to be a Friends of the Metro

Parks member ($10) earns a hiking stick

and a medallion for the stick. To track completed

park visits, pick up a hike card at

any of the parks featured in December,

then flag down a park ranger to stamp the

card after each visit.

Patches, sticks and medallions will be

distributed at the end of the series during a

celebration at Blacklick Woods Golf

Course. During the event, planned for Feb.

27 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., visitors can hike

the trails at the course, enjoy hot chocolate

and a campfire, and borrow skates to glide

around the ice rink.

This year’s Winter Hike Series rewards include a new hiking patch featuring a fox

design. Anyone who completes hikes at seven or more of the featured parks earns a

patch.

Hike Series and directions to each park,
