On the run for<br />

the second time<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> Editor<br />

It went so well the first<br />

time, they’re doing it again!<br />

The Merrimac Park Miracle<br />

organization will host<br />

the second annual London<br />

Marathon and Half-<br />

Marathon on April 30. London<br />

resident David Mars<br />

returns as the race director.<br />

The inaugural event was<br />

held this past spring, attracted<br />

nearly 200 runners,<br />

and raised $10,000 for improvements<br />

to Merrimac<br />

Park in London. Mars was<br />

pleased with those results,<br />

especially considering the<br />

short time in which the race<br />

was organized. With more<br />

time to plan and promote,<br />

he is hoping for even better<br />

results the second time<br />

around.<br />

“We’re looking to improve on it, make it bigger, and give a bigger<br />

check to Merrimac Miracle,” Mars said.<br />

One of the biggest changes is the race<br />

date. This year, the race took place in late<br />

May. Organizers chose late April for next<br />

Once again, the London Marathon<br />

and Half-Marathon will have fun<br />

with British references, including<br />

mile markers featuring pictures of<br />

landmarks one would see on the<br />

London, England marathon course.<br />

year’s race, the idea being that temperatures<br />

typically are cooler at that time of<br />

year, and, therefore, more ideal for runners.<br />

(As it turned out, the temperatures<br />

on race day this year were at record lows<br />

for late May.)<br />

Another change is the introduction of<br />

checkpoints. Runners who are in the<br />

lead at certain points along the course<br />

will win prizes. It’s an extra incentive designed<br />

to encourage faster racing and potentially<br />

reward more runners. And<br />

speaking of rewards, Mars is seeking<br />

sponsorships to increase the prize money<br />

for the winners. The aim is to attract<br />

more elite runners.<br />

The overall goal is to attract more<br />

runners period—no matter how fast or experienced<br />

they are—but there will be a<br />

capacity cap of 600 runners.<br />

While the date and some of the incentives<br />

are new, one facet of the race that<br />

is not changing is the flat, straight<br />

course, which Mars considers to be one<br />

of the event’s main selling points. Start-<br />

Trucking toward Christmas<br />

For the parade that kicked off West Jefferson’s Christmas in the Park, Phil Snyder drove his antique IH pickup<br />

truck nicknamed “Jack,” decked out with Christmas lights and a tree in the back. Christmas in the Park took<br />

place Dec. 11. The day started with high winds and rain and ended with dropping temperature, but spirits<br />

were high as visitors enjoyed hot food and beverages, crafts, carriage rides, visits with Santa, and the light<br />

display. The entertainment was cancelled when winds caused the loss of a tent. Mud was an issue in some<br />

areas due to the playground construction. Despite the challenges, the night was a success. The lights will<br />

be on at the park nightly through Jan. 1.<br />

Jaxon Mendera, 2, and his brother, 4-year-old Jordan, smile for the camera. Afterwards, they excitedly told<br />

Santa what they wanted for Christmas.

Continued from page 1<br />

ing and ending at Merrimac Park, the route runs through downtown<br />

London, onto the bike path headed toward West Jefferson, and<br />

to the turn-around point at Battelle Darby Creek Metro Park. The<br />

out-and-back course is ideal for setting personal records.<br />

“I think it’s a great course. As far as being fast, it doesn’t get<br />

much faster. It’s very unique in that it is so straight. Most courses<br />

are going to have loops; that might be more interesting, but it’s not<br />

as fast. In marathons, momentum is your friend,” Mars said.<br />

Another selling point: the course is USA Track & Field certified<br />

which means it measures exactly 13.1 miles for the half-marathon<br />

and exactly 26.2 miles for the full marathon. Times recorded at the<br />

race can be used to meet qualifying standards for other races, such<br />

as the Boston Marathon.<br />

Organizers also are sticking with the British theme, having fun<br />

with the London, Ohio /London, England concept. A bagpiper will<br />

once again play at the start of the race. Mile markers will feature<br />

pictures of landmarks one would see along the London, England<br />

marathon course. Mars said a quintessential British-style phone<br />

booth might even make an appearance.<br />

Currently, entry fees are $70 for the half-marathon and $90 for<br />

the full marathon. The prices increase after March 31. A halfmarathon<br />

entry comes with a vintage-style race shirt with the race<br />

logo, a finisher’s medal, and promotional offers from local businesses.<br />

A full marathon entry comes with a full-zip, lightweight<br />

hooded sweatshirt with the race logo, a finisher’s medal, and swag<br />

from local businesses.<br />

Start time for all runners is 7 a.m. The course will stay open for<br />

five hours after the last competitor starts.<br />

District thanks school board president for service<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

As the new year approaches, the Jefferson<br />

Local school board is bidding goodbye to<br />

President Melissa Adams as she finishes<br />

her four-year board term.<br />

Adams was elected as board president on<br />

Jan. 11, <strong>2021</strong>, after having previously<br />

served as vice president. She joined the<br />

West Jefferson community more than a<br />

decade ago and is a volunteer with the West<br />

Jefferson Youth Athletic Association and<br />

Jefferson Local high school and middle<br />

school athletics.<br />

She was elected to the school board in<br />

November 2017 and took office in January<br />

2018.<br />

“It’s been my pleasure to work with<br />

Melissa for four years,” said Superintendent<br />

William Mullett during the Dec. 14 school<br />

board meeting.<br />

Board Vice President Mike Quinn said<br />

Adams has done an outstanding job as president<br />

and that it has been a “real joy” to<br />

know her.<br />

“Three of us here have served as president,<br />

and it certainly is a challenge,” said<br />

board member David Harper, a past board<br />

president. He noted that Adams served during<br />

a year that included the successful negotiation<br />

of two contracts.<br />

Board member Dr. Meg Hiss said Adams<br />

experienced many firsts in her four-year<br />

term on the board. After accepting a plaque<br />

of appreciation from Mullett, Adams said it<br />

has truly been a pleasure to serve.<br />

Adams did not run for re-election on the<br />

Nov. 2 ballot. Incumbent Whitney Duemmel,<br />

who was appointed to the board on<br />

Aug. 10 following the passing of Jerry Doran<br />

in June, retained her seat.<br />

Addie Newman was the second top voter<br />

getter and will be sworn in during the<br />

board’s organizational meeting at 6:30 p.m.<br />

Jan. 10. The regular board meeting follows<br />

at 7 p.m.<br />

In other action, the board approved the<br />

hiring of Maria Murray as the new middle<br />

school art teacher effective Jan. 4 through<br />

the end of the <strong>2021</strong>-2022 school year. The<br />

board also awarded Murray an extracurricular<br />

contract to serve as the school’s art<br />

show advisor.<br />

Andrew Bevan resigned as middle school<br />

head boys’ wrestling coach. Volunteer high<br />

school assistant wrestling coaches Jake<br />

Datz and James Violet also resigned. David<br />

Skaggs will serve as the middle school head<br />

wrestling coach with Bevan serving on a volunteer<br />

basis as an assistant coach. Dylan<br />

Wildman also will serve as a middle school<br />

volunteer assistant coach.<br />

The board approved Danni Hiles as a volunteer<br />

middle school assistant girls’ basketball<br />

coach and Shelby King as the middle<br />

school yearbook advisor.<br />

Board members also gave the go-ahead<br />

to a TIF agreement for Columbus Logistics<br />

Park West Land.<br />

WITH WISHES FOR AN<br />

Old-Fashioned Christmas<br />

May all the beauties of the season be yours.<br />

Sincere thanks for being such a good customer.<br />

and Rehabilitation after 30 years of service. David<br />

was a strong advocate of the second amendment and belonged<br />

to the NRA.<br />

David fought a battle courageously for over 20 years<br />

with debilitating pain, pain that took his ability to walk<br />

and enjoy his nature. Still that pain never took his<br />

quick wit, nor his dignity and compassion. Just prior to<br />

his passing, he told his wife, Hope, that his journey was<br />

done. He wanted to be 10 years old again, he wanted to<br />

run and play in the backyard of his childhood home in<br />

the hills of West Virginia with his ever-present canine,<br />

and her children, Shane and Sarah; nephews,<br />

Brian (Jenny) Kidd and his son, Max, and Kevin (Jennifer)<br />

Kidd; sister-in-law, Vicki (Steve); brother-in-law,<br />

Robin (Inez) Jago and their daughter, Alyssa; niece,<br />

Brandi (Nathan) Cornetet and her children, Layla,<br />

Draydon and his son, Carter; nephews, Chip and Kyle;<br />

nephew, Nathan Jago and his son, Christian; special<br />

friends, Randy Kerbway of West Virginia, Jo Hedges of<br />

London, Sue and B.J., Pat and Rich.<br />

He was preceded in death by: his mother and father;<br />

sister, Katie (Randy) Kidd; and brother, Bill.<br />

Per David’s wishes, there was no visitation. A memorial<br />

service is planned for spring 2022 at Maplewood<br />

Cemetery, Glouster, Ohio. Memorials in David’s name<br />

may be sent to: Humane Society of <strong>Madison</strong> County,<br />

FOLLROD<br />

Jerry Lee Follrod, 80, of Mount Sterling passed away<br />

on Dec. 12, <strong>2021</strong>, and is now at peace with the Lord.<br />

Born on May 5, 1941, at White Cross Hospital to Clark<br />

and Mary Jean Follrod, Jerry and his brother, John<br />

(Lynn) Follrod ,were raised near Mount Sterling.<br />

Jerry attended The Plains High School where he fell<br />

for the love of his life and wife of 58 years, Phyllis<br />

(Woods) Follrod. They raised three children, Barb (Tim)<br />

Phillips, Tim Follrod, and Sandra (Rich) Bruton. A lifelong<br />

farmer, Jerry worked for 20 years at Hewitt Acres<br />

and 19 years at Orient Correctional managing farms<br />

there, while at home he raised his own crop of 4-H projects<br />

and a vegetable garden known far and wide.<br />

Jerry could be found most summer days in a denim<br />

shirt, blue jeans and a bucket hat, turning the year’s<br />

harvest into shelves of canned goods, including jar after<br />

jar of his famous green beans. He always had a dog at<br />

his feet, most recently taking the truck for rides into<br />

town with Baxter, coming home with Wendy’s. He belonged<br />

to the Fielding Masonic Lodge and was a member<br />

of the London chapter, Order of the Eastern Star<br />

along with Phyllis.<br />

He loved his family and his community, serving on<br />

the <strong>Madison</strong> Plains school board and, after retirement,<br />

obituaries<br />

at the <strong>Madison</strong> County Food Pantry. He made sure to<br />

instill in his children and grandchildren the values of<br />

hard work and taking care of their neighbors. Each<br />

year, he would set aside the first and best fruits of the<br />

garden for the Newport Methodist Church where he<br />

washed dishes after the fall supper.<br />

An avid fisherman, he loved bringing home a cooler<br />

full of walleye and never missed an opportunity for a<br />

fish sandwich.<br />

He was a tough but loving grandfather to Emily (Ian)<br />

Blanchard, Kyle Phillips, Dylan Follrod, Erin (Logan)<br />

Delk, Bailey Phillips, Owen Phillips, and Cole Bruton.<br />

He would share stories, life lessons, interesting articles<br />

and often a quiet handshake with a little cash. He was<br />

a cherished uncle, cousin, respected neighbor, and<br />

friend to many more.<br />

He worked hard, provided well, and was strong in his<br />

convictions. He was well loved and will be sorely missed.<br />

In lieu of flowers, please direct contributions to: Newport<br />

‘Single All the Way’ is sure to warm the heart<br />

I am not someone who makes fun of those<br />

who enjoy an escape into the enchanting<br />

land of the holiday romantic comedy, but I<br />

also am not someone who typically wants to<br />

spend time in that world.<br />

In my opinion, they are the schmaltziest<br />

romantic comedies put on steroids — triple<br />

the fluff, quadruple the sentimentality, and<br />

raise the level of sweetness to an intolerable<br />

degree. They are very much too much,<br />

which I am beginning to suspect may be a<br />

part of the general appeal.<br />

So, I was surprised when I recently found<br />

myself desiring a journey into that world. I<br />

lay the blame at the feet of Wham!<br />

A few weeks, the band’s poppy—albeit<br />

sad—hit, “Last Christmas,” spent hours running<br />

through my head. That made me want<br />

to revisit the 2019 British film inspired by<br />

this song and the work of the late, great<br />

George Michael. Since it wasn’t streaming<br />

for free on any platforms, I placed “Last<br />

Christmas” in my queue at the library and<br />

was compelled to look for more of its kind.<br />

Becky, Brittany, Grant, Jim & Kristy<br />

During this bizarre snowball effect<br />

prompted by my burgeoning holiday romantic<br />

comedy impulses, I came across a new<br />

film on Netflix called “Single All the Way.”<br />

I quickly realized I am not exactly the target<br />

demographic for this movie—it is directed<br />

more toward gay men—but it just<br />

looked so sweet that I couldn’t resist.<br />

“Single All the Way” does not break any<br />

new ground when it comes to holiday romantic<br />

comedies, but it is groundbreaking in that<br />

it does not succumb to the tropes that so<br />

many films that feature gay people, or specifically<br />

gay couples, do. In this film, there are<br />

no unaccepting friends or families and no<br />

awkward coming-out moments. There are no<br />

side eyes or harmful words tossed their way<br />

when they are out and about together. Instead,<br />

“Single All the Way” is just an unapologetically<br />

happy flick that is funny and<br />

delightful and a true holiday gift for all.<br />

Infusing the film with charm are Michael<br />

Urie and Philemon Chambers who play<br />

longtime friends and roommates, Peter and<br />

Nick, respectively. Despite having a “meet<br />

cute” moment upon arrival in L.A. years<br />

prior, they have decided to keep their relationship<br />

platonic, even though each has harbored<br />

a crush on the other from time to time.<br />

When the film begins, the perpetually<br />

single Peter is finally in a romantic relationship<br />

with a dreamy cardiologist who is<br />

quickly stealing his heart (lots of heart pun<br />

jokes to start the film — always a good sign).<br />

Believing their relationship to be serious, he<br />

invites Tim (Steven Lund) to join him in<br />

New Hampshire for Christmas with his<br />

family and is ecstatic when he accepts.<br />

As things are apt to do, real life (and uncovered<br />

lies) brings an abrupt end to Peter’s<br />

blossoming relationship, leaving him brokenhearted<br />

and wavering as he goes back to<br />

see his well-intentioned but meddling loved<br />

ones. “They always see (his singleness) as a<br />

problem to be solved,” Peter laments to Nick.<br />

Knowing Nick has no plans for the holidays,<br />

Peter begs him to travel across the<br />

country and pretend to be his boyfriend to<br />

appease his family, a fantastic ensemble<br />

cast led by Kathy Najimy who plays Peter’smother,<br />

Carole (as in “Christmas Carole”),<br />

Jennifer Coolidge as his eccentric aunt,<br />

the reel deal<br />

Dedra Cordle<br />

Sandy, and Jennifer Robertson as his upbeat<br />

and uptight sister, Lisa.<br />

When the duo arrive in the small ski<br />

town that runs primarily on holiday cheer,<br />

their plans of romantic subterfuge crumble<br />

when Carole announces she has set Peter up<br />

on a blind date with her personal trainer,<br />

James (Luke MacFarlane). Knowing his<br />

mother’s obsession with his dating life,<br />

Peter agrees to go on what is sure to be a<br />

disastrous date. But just as Peter realizes<br />

time spent with James might not be all that<br />

bad, the rest of his family becomes convinced<br />

Nick is the right man for him. And<br />

they are going to do everything in their<br />

power to make sure these two realize they<br />

are in love.<br />

What makes “Single All the Way” such a<br />

fun watch is how it combines some of the<br />

best tropes in romantic comedies, not just<br />

holiday themed ones. It has meddling families,<br />

squabbling families, families coming together<br />

for a singular purpose, longing looks,<br />

a wrench in the plan, homesickness, and the<br />

delightful friends-to-lovers aspect. In this<br />

film, however, there is some question as to<br />

whether Peter and Nick will get together because<br />

both have reservations about the potential<br />

of losing their friendship should any<br />

romantic relationship go sour.<br />

While we all know how it will end, the<br />

cast makes it a blast to get to that point, infusing<br />

nearly every scene with warmth,<br />

humor and joy. You can tell everyone had a<br />

great time on this set, and that sense of enjoyment<br />

translates to the viewer.<br />

Though not a perfect film — there are pacing<br />

issues and some clunky dialogue — “Single<br />

All the Way” is an infectiously joyful<br />

movie, one that is sure to warm the heart of<br />

any true holiday romcom lover, and possibly<br />

even the ones who are slowly thawing to its<br />

awesome powers of feel-goodness.<br />

Grade: B<br />

Energetic Oak and loving Johnny seeking homes<br />

The following are among the pets up for<br />

adoption at the Humane Society of <strong>Madison</strong><br />

County. If you are interested in adopting a<br />

pet, fill out an application online at<br />

www.hsmcohio.org or call the shelter at<br />

(614) 879-8368.<br />

Oak<br />

After being found<br />

by a park ranger,<br />

Oak arrived at the<br />

shelter on Sept. 13.<br />

Oak is a handsome<br />

guy with unique<br />

brindle and white<br />

markings. He<br />

weighs 55 pounds,<br />

is about 3 years old,<br />

and believed to be a<br />

border collie/German shepherd mix. Oak is<br />

a wild man with a heart of gold. He is very<br />

active and would thrive best in an active<br />

home. He likes going for walks and is working<br />

on his leash manners. When he comes<br />

out of his kennel, he is a big bundle of excitement<br />

at first. Once he gets outside, he<br />

settles down and enjoys his time out. He is<br />

very food motivated and is learning basic<br />

commands.<br />

Oak is not to keen on the shenanigans of<br />

other animals, so he will do best in a home<br />

where he is the only furbaby (he just wants<br />

all of the love for himself). This guy loves his<br />

toys and will play his heart out until he is<br />

ready for a snooze. He also seems to like<br />

puzzle toys in which you can hide treats; he<br />

will sniff them out. Because Oak has so<br />

much energy, he would need a home with<br />

older children who have experience around<br />

high-energy dogs. Oak tries his hardest to<br />

be a good boy and, with the right family,<br />

this boy will shine!<br />

Adoption fees for dogs vary: shelter dogs<br />

are $150, prison dogs are $200, puppies are<br />

$250, and popular pure-breeds are $400.<br />

The price includes: a Home Again microchip,<br />

set of shots, deworming, heartworm<br />

testing (if old enough), spay or neuter, and<br />

a one-year rabies shot (if old enough). All<br />

dogs adopted must leave with a county license<br />

at an additional cost of $17. Fees can<br />

be paid by cash or credit card.<br />

Johnny<br />

Johnny arrived<br />

at the shelter on<br />

June 10, <strong>2021</strong>. He<br />

has an estimated<br />

birthday of April<br />

<strong>2021</strong>. He spent<br />

some time in a foster<br />

home so that he<br />

could gain confidence<br />

and learn to<br />

trust humans.<br />

Johnny lives<br />

with other cats and<br />

dogs and loves<br />

them. He loves people, too, and enjoys snuggling<br />

up to you for a cozy nap. He is a very<br />

sweet and loving cat that cannot wait to find<br />

his forever home.<br />

The adoption fee is $80 for kittens up to<br />

6 months old and $60 for cats 7 months and<br />

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

neuter, set of shots, deworming, and a oneyear<br />

rabies shot (if old enough). Fees can be<br />

paid by cash or credit card.

WELCOMES NEW AGENT, RICHELLE MABRA<br />

Please help us welcome Richelle Mabra<br />

to the RE/MAX Leading Edge Family!<br />

Richelle Mabra is a lifetime resident of London, Ohio. She has<br />

become more active in the community when it comes to the<br />

future of the children and the future of London. She is the<br />

current President of the Merri Mac Park Miracle, which is a citizen<br />

committee that has been instrumental in raising funds for the<br />

revitalization of Merri Mac Park in London. She started a group<br />

called The Village in 2019 that held events for the children such<br />

as Halloween and pool parties. In 2020 The Village helped those in need during<br />

the pandemic with raising money for groceries or just locating the products<br />

they needed that they were not able to find. The Village delivered groceries and<br />

other items to the elderly to keep them safe at home.<br />

Two words that describe Richelle, Goal-Driven and Pride.<br />

Goal-Driven is how her clients would describe her and how she approaches<br />

every real estate transaction. Richelle’s goal is to get you the best result possible<br />

whether you are buying or selling.<br />

Richelle takes pride in knowing the real estate agent she is working with on the<br />

other side of a transaction and they always say Richelle was great to deal with. In<br />

this profession working well with others makes an offer go a long way. Richelle<br />

also takes pride in knowing the offer made or accepted was the best offer her<br />

client could give or receive. Richelle works for referrals so the best way to<br />

continue to get business is to do a great job for her clients so they continue to<br />

refer her to their friends and family.<br />

You’ll never say “I wasn’t able to get a hold of my agent” as Richelle tries her best<br />

to be available 24/7. Richelle knows important things come to mind and you<br />

just have to send that text or email in the middle of the night or early morning<br />

and she responds to that communication the moment it comes to her<br />

attention.<br />

If you are looking for someone who will be goal-driven to get you the best result<br />

possible and takes pride in her work, Richelle is the real estate agent for you.<br />

You can reach Richelle Mabra anytime at (614) 270-0875 or<br />

Smiles abound at Shop with a Sheriff event<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> Editor<br />

Imagine being a guest of honor in a caravan of sheriff’s cruisers<br />

with lights flashing, shopping for Christmas presents with a deputy,<br />

then hanging out afterwards, eating pizza.<br />

Fifteen children from the <strong>Madison</strong>-Plains Local School District<br />

Blessings of the Season<br />

We’d like to join you and your family<br />

in a prayer for peace and harmony.<br />

For your goodwill, we are humbly grateful.<br />

Season’s<br />

Greetings<br />

When life slows down, the beauty<br />

of what matters most comes into focus.<br />

We wish everyone a blessed and healthy holiday<br />

filled with love and friendship.<br />

Merry Christmas!<br />

experienced exactly that the evening of Dec.<br />

8 as they participated in “Shop with a Sheriff,”<br />

courtesy of the <strong>Madison</strong> County Sheriff’s<br />

Office. They ranged in age from<br />

kindergarten to sixth grade.<br />

“We love doing this to see the smiles on<br />

the kids’ faces,” said Deputy Birdie Roberts,<br />

who has helped to coordinate Shop with a<br />

Sheriff the past 12 years. This year marks<br />

the third consecutive year the program has<br />

benefitted <strong>Madison</strong>-Plains youths.<br />

Roberts starts by consulting school principals<br />

and secretaries to select children to<br />

participate. She gathers information about<br />

the children’s wants and needs from their<br />

parents or guardians, then sets a date for<br />

the shopping outing.<br />

This year, the children and deputies met<br />

at the Coughlin Community Center on the<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> County Fairgrounds. The guests of<br />

honor were transported by cruisers to Shoe<br />

Sensations in London where they picked out<br />

new shoes and socks. They then traveled to<br />

Walmart to pick out the fun stuff—toys,<br />

games, dolls, you name it. Some of the children<br />

picked out items not only for themselves,<br />

but for their siblings and/or parents,<br />

too. They did it all with the one-on-one help<br />

of deputies and members of the deputies’ families.<br />

“Working at the Sheriff’s Office, I always say it’s a family thing.<br />

So, when we do something like this, we always include our own families,”<br />

Roberts said.<br />

She and her fellow Shop with a Sheriff organizers also make a<br />

point of shopping at local stores and patronizing a local restaurant<br />

for the post-shopping dinner—this year, it was Cappy’s Pizza. Shoe<br />

Sensation provided a discount, making it possible for each child to<br />

go home with two pairs of shoes, instead of one. Walmart provided<br />

Warmest Wishes!<br />

Lots of fun was had by volunteers and children at this year’s Shop<br />

with a Sheriff as they filled their carts at Walmart in London.<br />

a discount, too, helping to stretch the program’s<br />

funding.<br />

Coughlin Automotive sponsors Shop with<br />

a Sheriff, covering all of the shopping and<br />

pizza party expenses. The <strong>Madison</strong> County<br />

Sheriff’s Association covers the cost of gift<br />

wrapping supplies. Tom Coughlin and his<br />

family are among the volunteers who shop<br />

with the children, wrap the gifts, and hang<br />

out with the kids at the pizza party.<br />

The in-person facet of the event did not<br />

happen last year due to the pandemic, but<br />

the Sheriff’s Office still made Christmas joy<br />

happen.<br />

“The deputies shopped for the gifts and<br />

More school tours coming up<br />

dropped them off to the kids. We wanted to make sure COVID didn’t<br />

stop them from getting Christmas gifts,” Roberts said.<br />

The Sheriff’s Office keeps up the annual tradition as a way to<br />

help families and children in the community and to make positive<br />

connections.<br />

“We do this so kids know cops are not bad people. It’s a chance<br />

for them to maybe get a rapport with us. It’s a comfort thing. We<br />

want them to know that anytime they anything, they can feel comfortable<br />

coming to talk to us,” Roberts said.<br />

London City Schools Superintendent Dr.<br />

Lou Kramer is hosting community tours<br />

and information sessions for parents and<br />
