The deadline to

“We want to hear from all perspectives—

residents, business owners, trail users and

non-users,” said Dr. Gregg Alexander, president

of the Friends of Madison County

Parks and Trails (FMCPT). “And you don’t

have to live in the community to participate.”

FMCPT and other trail supporters are

What do you think of trail?

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

How often do you use the trail? How does

your family and community benefit from it?

What makes the trail enjoyable or not? Do

you want trail users to visit your town to

purchase goods and services? What one

thing do you want trail users to remember

about your town? How prepared is your

town to meet the needs of people arriving by

trail? Has or how can your business benefit

from trail tourism?

These are some of the questions asked in

a survey to help develop a guide by which

communities can become Trail Towns—

towns that support trail users with services,

promote their trails, and value their trails

enough to take care of them.

London is one of four towns taking part

in the Central Ohio Greenways (COG) Trail

Town initiative. The other three towns are

Centerburg, Mount Vernon and Sunbury.

All four sit along the Ohio To Erie Trail, a

326-mile route between the Ohio River in

Cincinnati and Lake Erie in Cleveland.

COG is a committee of the Mid-Ohio Regional

Planning Commission. The goal of

the Trail Town initiative is to provide communities

with tools to encourage trail

tourism and active transportation.

One of the first

steps is gathering

public input about

trail usage and how

trails can be improved

to benefit

Past Kindergarten Club sessions have introduced

scissor cutting skills, sorting, creating patterns, and

combining motor skills like tossing and catching with

letter sounds and color memorization. Each session

teaches children to share, pay attention and follow directions.

“The development of school readiness skills begins

years before going to kindergarten,” Wood said. “My

goal is to introduce academic, social and physical skills

to preschoolers so by the time they arrive at school, they

can be successful.”

Masks are required for everyone ages 3 and older

London Elementary School received a $5,000 Battelle For Kids STEM grant to purchase tools and supplies for

students to explore the pond behind the school. The idea is to treat the pond as an outdoor learning lab.

Pond to become learning lab

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

The retention pond behind London Elementary

School is taking on a new purpose.

Thanks to a Battelle For Kids STEM grant, students

in kindergarten through fifth grade will have tools at their

disposal to enjoy the pond as an outdoor learning lab.

London Elementary is one of 100 schools in Ohio to

receive $5,000 to expand its science, technology, engineering

and math (STEM) learning projects through the

Ohio STEM Learning Network.

“We will use the money to buy things like thermometers,

binoculars, a weather station, and soil sampling

kits,” said Carla Shaw, London City Schools director of

digital learning and innovation.

Shaw, who wrote the grant application, said she envisions

a wide array of potential learning activities. Students

could keep statistics on a variety of observations,

participate in national bird counts, analyze water samples,

and catalogue the different types of wildlife they see.

“We’re already established as a Wild School by the

Ohio Department of Natural Resources, so this goes

hand-in-hand with that,” Shaw said. “It helps students

appreciate wildlife a little more in their community, and

TRAIL

Engineer’s Office to keep the trails clean and maintained.

They hold fundraisers, rides, and other community

events. They have installed kiosks and information

bulletin boards that direct trail users to restaurants and

other businesses in town.

These efforts have not gone unnoticed. FMCPT hears

frequently from trail users. One example is Andy

Niekamp, a seasoned hiker who has completed multiple

end-to-end hikes of the Appalachian Trail and the first

solo hike of the 1,444-mile Buckeye Trail which he chronicled

in his book, “Captain Blue on the Blue Blazes.”

Niekamp had this to say after visiting Madison

County in 2017 and donating $1,000 to FMCPT toward

closing the trail’s gap between Maple and Walnut

streets in London: “In my opinion, the Friends of Madison

County Parks and Trails group serves as a model to

the rest of Ohio on how to be a Trail Town and how to

embrace a trail within your community... I have visited

many, many trail towns on my journeys. Madison

County and London stands out as one of the most impressive

trail towns I have ever visited.”

While London doesn’t officially hold the title of a

Trail Town, those who work to maintain and promote

the trail appreciate such praise.

“With the Trail Town initiative, it’s not so much that

it enhances learning opportunities in the STEM field.”

The goal is to have the tools and supplies in hand in

time to start utilizing the outdoor learning lab this

spring, she said.

Long-term, the district would like to build a boardwalk

into the pond and install seating along the shore,

said Dr. Lou Kramer, district superintendent.

Marine Corps

Shaw’s efforts to help students also includes a trip to

Parris Island, S.C., where she learned about the Marine

Corps. She spent Feb. 8-11 at the Marine Corps Recruiting

Command Educators Workshop.

“The purpose was to learn about the Marine Corps,

as well as other branches of the military, so that we can

help students make informed decisions about military

pursuits (after high school),” Shaw said.

She and 37 other educators from Ohio and Michigan

experienced a light version of bootcamp. They learned

about the enlistment process and he education and career

opportunities available through the military.

“With this experience, I’m able to have realistic and

knowledgeable conversations with students who are

considering this opportunity,” Shaw said.

She plans to share the information with other London

City Schools staffers.

we need a lot of help as that we can help other communities

by sharing our experience and expertise. We will

gain some, too,” Alexander said.

The initiative comes at an interesting time for London,

according to Wayne Roberts, FMCPT executive director.

“What’s sort of unique for London right now is that

(London is) going through the

initial set-up with the Main

Street program through Heritage

Ohio,” he said.

Main Street is a national

program that focuses on reviving

and/or enhancing the vitality

of downtown areas.

“Main Street has a lot of the

same ideas and objectives as the

Trail Town program. It’s fortunate

for us, but also unique that

we’re going through both at the

same time,” Roberts said.

The positive opportunities

are great, he continued, if

everyone works together.

Church plans events to celebrate bicentennial

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

With events scheduled from spring through fall, South

Charleston’s First Presbyterian Church is celebrating “200 Years

of Serving God and Community.”

All bicentennial activities will take place at the church, 15 N.

Chillicothe St., and are free and open to the public.

March 20 at 2 p.m.—Sue Mattinson, president of the South

Charleston Heritage Commission and author of “Edward Edwards:

The Man Who Built South Charleston,” will talk about Edwards,

who was a member of the church for the last 39 years of his life.

Mattinson’s presentation will mesh the early growth of South

Charleston (established in 1815) with the early growth of the

church within Edwards’s lifetime (he was born in 1820).

• May 1 at 2 p.m.—In cooperation with the Heritage Commission,

the church will host a walking tour of village churches, starting

with St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church and South Charleston

United Methodist Church. Refreshments will be served at the Presbyterian

Church, the last stop on the tour.

• June 26 at 4 p.m.—Ice cream social with music

• Sept. 25 at 11:30 a.m.—In conjunction with the annual Heritage

Days Festival, the church will host a homecoming luncheon for

members and friends, past and present.

• Nov. 6 at 10 a.m.—The worship service will mirror the 1907

dedication of the current church building with music of the time,

readings, and more.

South Charleston First Presbyterian got its start as part of a

mission by the Presbyterian West Union.

“They saw growth in the area, so they sent out a missionary,”

said Diane Eichelberger, a member of the church’s 200th anniversary

committee.

The congregation was founded in 1822 with 12 people. Initially,

they met in one another’s homes. At the time, there were only 13

homes in South Charleston. As membership grew, the congregation

built and occupied several churches over the years. The current

church building was dedicated on Nov. 3, 1907. The cost was $8,000

for the main structure. The women of the church raised another

$2,000 for decorations.

Today, South Charleston First Presbyterian serves its members

and community through a variety of programs and services, including

clubs and small groups for children, teenagers, and adults.

“There are few churches that have been around as long as First

Presbyterian. Many are closing. Ours is flourishing,” Eichelberger

said.

Dr. Rev. Aaron White serves as pastor. For more information

about the celebration, call the church at (937) 462-8479.

New masking guidance

On Feb. 25, the U.S. Centers for Disease

Control and Prevention (CDC) revised their

COVID-19 community indicators and masking

guidance. The new guidance reflects the

significant COVID-19 improvements the

U.S. has recently observed

The new community indicators use case

rates, hospital admissions, and hospital capacity

to inform local decisions. This data

shows how many people in the area are getting

sick enough to require medical care,

and if the healthcare system has the resources

to provide care for all patients, including

those who need care for something

other than COVID-19.

The three risk levels for COVID-19 under

the new guidance are low, medium and high.

All levels encourage staying up-to-date on

COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters, following

isolation protocols, and improving ventilation

for indoor settings. Madison County is

currently at the “medium” risk level.

The “low” level indicates there is less severe

COVID-19 illness in the area and

masks are not needed in most settings.

When communities are at the “medium”

level, hospitals are seeing more sick patients,

and high-risk individuals and their

contacts are encouraged to wear a mask and

have a testing plan.

At the “high” level, community-wide policies

to wear masks indoors are recommended,

and those at high risk should consider extra

precautions to protect themselves.

The CDC’s new recommendations do not

change mask requirements for healthcare

facilities, nursing homes, or public transportation

and hubs, except for buses or vans

operated by public or private school systems.

“Some individuals may still choose to

wear masks, even at low community risk

levels, and that’s okay,” said Madison

County Health Commissioner Erin Fawley.

“We all should support and encourage efforts

to protect those at high risk. If you get

sick, stay home, avoid being around people

who are at increased risk, and do what we

know works to prevent spreading COVID-

19 to others.”

Madison County Public Health (MCPH)

continues to offer COVID-19 vaccinations

and boosters at the office, 306 Lafayette St.,

Suite B, London. Monday through Friday.

As testing becomes more available, MCPH

will resume distribution to the public. For

COWAN

Mark William Cowan,

66, of Hilliard, Ohio,

passed away peacefully

at his home surrounded

by his loving wife and

children on Jan. 12, 2022.

Born to Charles and

Anna (Hickman) Cowan

on Sept. 10, 1955, in

Columbus, Ohio. He graduated from Walnut

Ridge High School in 1974. Mark was a selfmade

man, starting at Stanley Electric, U.S.

Company in 1981 as a temporary employee

and hired on full-time in 1982. After 34

years of service, Mark retired as the executive

vice president. Mark served on the

board of directors for Madison County Hospital

from 2009 to 2015 and was awarded

the Madison County Chamber of Commerce

Bell Ringer award in 2016. Mark enjoyed

golfing, landscaping, cooking and most any

sporting event. Mark loved all people and

never met a stranger. He invested in people

and relationships throughout his lifetime.

He will be sorely missed by many.

Mark married Jennie (Wasson) Cowan in

November 1998, and they shared nearly 24

years of exciting adventures. They enjoyed

their lake house in South Carolina and traveling

as much as possible. Mark’s greatest

treasures were his children, Amanda

(William) Linkous, Kelsey Cowan (fiancé

Mike Burkett), and Grant Cowan. He was a

hands-on dad who would take great pleasure

in embarrassing his kids, but he always

made sure they knew how proud he was of

them and how dearly loved they were. Mark

also was blessed with three grandkids,

Brea, Blake, and Brody Linkous, whom he

loved passionately.

He was preceded in death by his parents,

Charles and Anna Cowan, and brother-inlaw,

David Kuhn. He is survived by sisters,

Candice (Greg) Buskirk and Leesa Kuhn.

Mark courageously fought glioblastoma

for 3.5 years but never lost his joy of life. His

sense of humor never waivered, even

though his daily challenges were enormous.

He showed us all how to live life to the

fullest with grace, kindness and dignity.

Visitation and a funeral service were

held on Jan. 18 at Tidd Family Funeral

Home, Hilliard. Interment followed at Wesley

Chapel Cemetery.

PETERS

June Ellen (Rea) Peters joined her husband,

Charles, on Feb. 23, 2022, on what

would have been their 59th wedding anniversary.

She was born on Dec. 19, 1943, in

London, Ohio, the daughter of Donald and

Mildred (Wentz) Rea.

A 1961 graduate of London High School,

June worked for the Madison County Auditor’s

Office as a deputy auditor for 18 years,

serving under Raymond “Max” Weimer and

Jim Williamson. Before the decline of their

health, June and Charles enjoyed traveling.

They enjoyed their trip to Alaska with Bob

and Bev Turvy, visiting with Pat and John

Taylor in Tennessee and Florida, taking the

train to see their daughter, Deanna and Jeff

Loudon in San Francisco, Calif., and then to

New York City when they moved, fishing

and camping with Harold and Betty Sebastian,

and attending the many Naval reunions

with Charles’s shipmates.

June was a strong woman who took care

of her husband while her own health was

declining. June loved being a mother,

grandma, and great-grandma. Her love for

us made her fight even harder to survive,

but her body was slowly failing due to complications

from colon cancer.

She is survived by: her children, LeeAnn

(Jason) Robertson, Deanna (Jeff) Loudon,

Chad (Molly) Peters; grandchildren, Tiffany

(Megan Garland) Brock, J.J. and Ally

Robertson, Olivia and Lillian Loudon,

Colten Winters, Eli (Erin) North, and

Charley Peters; great-grandchildren, Alina

Brock and Emmalee and Natalie Garland.

Family and special friends that helped June

and Charles over the years include Bob and

Bev Turvy, Betty Sebastian, John and Shelley

Hopkins, Pat and Vicki O’Neil and family,

Dick and Patty Snyder, Emily Beck, and

the late Gary Groves. She was preceded in

death by: her parents; husband, Charles;

and her brother, William “Bill” Rea who

died in January 2007 at age 58.

Per June’s request, there was a private

graveside service for family and no visitation

service. Memorials may be made to London

Public Library, 20 E. First St., London, OH

43140. Arrangements were entrusted to

Lynch Family Funeral Home & Cremation

Service, London. Condolences may be shared

at www.lynchfamilyfuneralhome.com.

KENNEDY

Jerome M. Kennedy, born on a farm in

Clark County, Ohio, August 1941 to Robert

and Catherine Kennedy, was called to the

kingdom peacefully on Feb. 24, 2022.

Jerry, as he was known to his friends and

family, was greeted with love and laughter

by brothers Jimmy, Johnny, Bobby and

Billy, and sister, Peggy. Jerry’s life on the

farm was a cherished memory spoken of for

all 80 years of his life.

Jerry attended Northeastern High

School, went on to the Army National

Guard, and then spent much of his career in

maintenance supervisory roles. This included

28 years of hard work and pride into

his job at White Westinghouse where he

met his bride, Susan, of 52 years. After the

closing of White Westinghouse, Jerry took

his talents to Yellow Freight, then on to the

Columbus Convention Center until his retirement.

Jerry and Susan built a life together in

Galloway, Ohio, with their children, Lora

(Jonny) Cotton, Dan (Amy) Howard, Jerry

(Johanna) Kennedy, and Bill Kennedy.

Jerry and Susan lovingly welcomed grandchildren—Ryan

(Amanda) Evans, Mitchell

Howard, Cole Howard, Kyle Howard,

Catherine Kennedy, Maddy Kennedy, and

Nolan Kennedy—and great-grandchildren:

Craig Evans and Eva Evans.

They built a home of love and nurturing,

the value of hard work, a life of leading the

Alton Hall Vikings pee wee football team,

days of go-carting, gardening, family dinners,

and life lessons that would carry on in

his children to this very day. He cherished

his family, as he cherished the soil of his

beloved farm, and enjoyed watching them

grow like an extension of his own heart.

He will be missed by all who came into

his company. There was never a shortage of

jokes and laughter when Jerry was around.

If you knew Jerry, then no words are needed

to describe who he was and the size of his

heart. He will be missed daily, cherished

hourly and we will all fondly await the day

to be reunited with our dad.

Visitation and a funeral service were

held on March 3 at Rader-McDonald-Tidd

Funeral Home, West Jefferson. Interment

followed at Sunset Cemetery, Galloway.

ARTIS

Josephine “Sis” Artis, 87, of London died

on Feb. 27, 2022. Born on Sept. 5, 1934, in

Columbus, she was a daughter of Arzella

(Wilson) and Clarence Cooper Sr. A member

and Spiritual Mother of the Bethesda Apostolic

Church of Urbana, she was an avid

bowler, loved softball and dancing and was

active with Madison County Relay for Life.

Survivors include: her children, Connie

Whitelow, Lynn (Marshall) Allen, Wilfred

“Bunk” (Angie) Artis Jr. and Troy (Jennifer)

Artis; 14 grandchildren; a host of great- and

great-great grandchildren; brothers and sister,

Raymond (Sandy) Cooper, Clarence

Cooper Jr., Larry (Cheryl) Cooper and

Renee Willis; numerous nieces and

nephews; brother-in-law, Melvin (Linda)

(Artis) Armstrong and sisters-in-law, Barbara

Cooper, Flora Artis and Juanita Artis.

She was preceded in death by: her parents;

husband, Wilfred “Bunk” Artis Sr.;

and siblings, Curtis Cooper, Bobby Cooper,

Dean Cooper, Elizabeth Jackson, Deloris

Frye, Vivian Price and Rozella Cooper.

Funeral services were held on March 3,

2022, in Fountain of Truth Ministries, London,

with Bishop Gregory Irvin and Pastor

Tyrone Artis officiating. Interment followed

in Deercreek Township Cemetery. Memorials

may be made to the National Kidney

Foundation at www.kidney.org or St. Judes
