Township finds fix to

minute meeting issue

On March 5, Ohio State 4 Paws volunteers (pictured left to right) Olivia Zinnen, Addie Colclasure, Addie Parkov, and Emily

Hamilton pose with future service dogs Hound, Fargo, Morty and Dino at a special presentation at the Grove City Library that

focused on the wonders of service animals. For the last several months, these Ohio State University students have been helping

4 Paws socialize the animals for future service. The program, which was hosted by the Friends of the Southwest Public Libraries’

special events committee, will also be held at the Westland Area Library on April 23 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. To register for the

event, call 614-878-1301 ext. 602.

The power of the dogs

As a local township continues to struggle

with posting minutes online, leadership

has suggested using new software that will

help them catch up.

At a recent Franklin Township meeting,

the board discussed using software that

would convert audio files of past meeting

minutes into word documents so residents

can view the meeting minutes in a timely

fashion.

Township meeting minutes were

months behind and had not been updated

since October of 2021. Instead, audio from

the meetings had been posted online.

Franklin Township Fiscal Officer Nick

Dunn previously said that they did not

have enough time to complete the minutes

and ensure employees are paid in a timely

manner.

This had been an ongoing issue for the

fiscal department, who is responsible for

the minutes. In May of 2021, the township

It is not uncommon for young pups to

have bouts of diarrhea, but Addie

Colclasure was certain that her dog’s

colon had become possessed.

On the hour, every hour at night, it

was like a switch had activated: Fargo

would jostle around in his bed, letting the

barely slumbering college student know

that it was time to go. Quickly, she would

throw on whatever pair of foot coverings

were on the ground, grab his leash, and

lead him out of the dorms to do his business.

These escapades occurred frequently

for months — veterinarians assured

Colclasure that Fargo had some “colon

issues” but was otherwise a healthy

Golden Retriever/Newfoundland mix —

and yet she somehow maintained her sanity,

and a good grade point average to

boot.

“It was a close call,” joked the freshman

at The Ohio State University.

She said what helped get her through

this challenging phase of her dog’s life was

not just the unconditional love she felt for

him, but also the factual reminder that

this inconvenience would be for the

greater good of humanity.

An example of that “greater good”

played out recently in Grove City.

It was March 5 and the local library

was hosting an event about the power of

service animals. As a volunteer with the

university’s student organization that

partners with the Xenia-based non-profit

4 Paws for Ability, Colclasure was there

with Fargo and a few other fellow service

dogs-in-training and their human

charges.

The mission was to discuss the process

of how a pup becomes a fully realized service

dog but a live demonstration of their

impact stole the show.

Pam Lippert was in distress.

The fists of the Grove City resident

were tucked in a ball near her chin, shaking.

Unsteady on her feet, it looked like

she was ready to fall into the chairs

stacked behind her. The service dogs-intraining

were alert, uncertain how to

respond, but only one knew exactly what

to do.

SERVICE DOGS

Continued from page 1

Molly, a 4-year-old Golden Lab who is normally

quiet and laid-back, immediately got up and rushed to

Pam’s side. Her bushy tail wagging furiously, she

chuffed and barked until human assistance arrived.

As Pam sat there in the chair after the episode,

Molly nuzzled her hands, offering comfort as she came

down from this stressful time.

To be clear, Pam was not in any real danger. She

immediately shook off the effects and told Molly what

a good girl she was. She may have even slipped her a

yummy treat or two.

Pam explained to the crowd of impressed onlookers

that this is a game she, her husband Charlie, and their

daughter Katie play with their dog. Should they cease

to do so, it could prove to be deadly.

Since Katie was an infant, she has suffered from

seizures. At first, it was barely noticeable — “it looked

almost like a hiccup,” Pam said. “Her shoulders would

go down and her head would drop” — but they got progressively

worse as she aged.

Diagnosed with a rare type of epilepsy called

Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome, the Lippert’s tried strict

ketogenic diets and any medication that the doctors

would recommend.

At first, the combination seemed to help but eventually

their effectiveness wore off.

“She would have what we called a “honeymoon

phase,” Charlie said. “Katie would respond well to

these medications for a while and then the honeymoon

would wear off.”

Not knowing where else to turn, Pam jokingly asked

her hairdresser for advice. She gave them a solid tip:

search for a service dog.

“I had never heard of such a thing before she made

that suggestion,” said Pam, “but we were willing to do

just about anything that would help improve Katie’s

quality of life.”

The Lippert’s eventually found 4 Paws for Ability

and proceeded to request that a service dog be specifically

trained to detect Katie’s seizures. They sent

Katie’s clothing pre and post seizure, filled out

“mounds” of paperwork on their likes, dislikes, daily

activities, and raised some serious funds to offset the

training costs.

In 2002, when Katie was about 11 years old, Cody

came into their lives. Though Katie’s seizures had lessened

some — Charlie joked that he was a “seizure prevention

dog rather than a seizure detection dog” —

Cody would monitor her activity and alert her family

to any changes in her behavior or smell.

For nearly six years, he was Katie’s dutiful companion,

helping the happy but very shy girl make friends

in and out of school. When Cody died from cancer,

Hudson came into their lives and proceeded to fill the

role of his predecessor. Hudson was there when Katie

graduated from Central Crossing in 2013, Hudson was

there to pull off the covers when Katie had seizures at

night, and he was there to serve as another dutiful

companion.

When he passed of cancer in 2019, the Lippert’s

seriously wondered if they should get another service

dog, especially since it appeared that Katie’s seizures

were under control.

“We would ask ourselves if it was worth the heartbreak,”

said Charlie. “It is so tough to lose a beloved

animal, especially one that provides such a service to

your daughter. They have made her life exponentially

better, and they have been such a peace of mind for

us.”

Pam and Charlie do not know if it was Katie’s sadness

at the loss of Hudson but they started to notice an

uptick in the number of her seizures soon thereafter.

Liam Ellcessor, 11, gets a big kiss from Starlet. Joyce

Cassady, Starlet’s primary caretaker, said she will be

going in for evaluation at the end of the month.

Should she pass, Starlet will go on to more advanced

training at the 4 Paws facility in Xenia.

Since they had such success with 4 Paws, they

reached out again to apply for a service dog. The local

community helped them fundraise thousands of dollars

to cover most of the cost of the extensive two-year

training process.

In 2020, Molly arrived, much to Katie’s delight.

“Spoiled,” is how Katie, now 31, describes her. And

loyal.

For the most part, Molly does not like for the spotlight

to be on her. She would much rather focus on her

humans and their well-being.

But she will, on occasion, step in to serve as a role

model for a new generation of potential service dogs,

much like she did at the event at the library. She knew

that all eyes were on her and her family — that is exactly

where she wanted them to be.

Colclasure said hearing stories like theirs and

watching service dogs at work is like an affirmation for

her and her fellow volunteers: it is an affirmation that

the months of basic training and socialization are

worth it, it is an affirmation that what they are doing

will make an impact. It is an affirmation that it will be

okay to let the pups go when they move back to Xenia

for more advanced training, and it is an affirmation

that their charges will go on to better the life of someone

in need.

“There have been times, like when Fargo had diarrhea

for months, where it’s just like ‘Man, I really don’t

want you right now, I want to tap out of this program,’”

she said. “But I love him to death and I would do it all

over again if it meant that he is going to be a great

service dog one day.

“I know in my heart that, when the time comes, he

will be ready.”

The Friends of the Southwest Public Libraries’ special

events committee hosted the service dog special

event in Grove City on March 5. Chair Carol Rorick

said their objective was for the program to be “educational,

inspirational, and fun for the whole family.”

“I think they succeeded,” she said, mentioning that

she and her fellow committee members have plans to

go to Xenia to check out the program.

The Westland Area Library will be hosting another

4 Paws for Ability at Ohio State presentation on

Saturday, April 23 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Participants

will learn about both organizations, meet the dogs, do

activities, and likely mull becoming a foster for budding

service animals.

Franklin Township will revisit joining a consortium

with the Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio (SWACO).

“I spoke to SWACO and I’d like to get the lay of the land

on how this consortium works,” said Steve Mazer, administrator

for the township at a recent board meeting. “I have

another phone call with SWACO’s attorney so hopefully I

will understand how this consortium works and how it

affects the residents of Franklin Township. Then I will

have a full report for the trustees and the residents.”

For more than two years, residents have been complaining

to township leadership about the lack of action by the

board related to securing a trash contract as they continue

to see prices increase.

Last year, the township was offered an opportunity to

join SWACO Consortium II. This would have included

Franklin Township, as well as the village of Brice, Clinton,

Pleasant, Sharon and Truro townships and cost residents

$19.99 a month. This fee would have included trash, recycling

and yard waste collection from Local Waste.

Rumpke proposed $21.32 a month for collection, according

to township leadership.

The township had until March 22, 2021 to determine if

they wanted to enter the consortium, but they opted not to

join, upsetting some residents.

“My bill keeps going up,” said Janet Ward, township

resident. “If we enter a consortium, we will have set prices

for a while and that would better than the contracts we

currently are getting on our own.”

Franklin Township trustee John Fleshman said he has

seen his bill continue to increase and understands why residents

want a consortium. He said recently his bill went up

$9.80 a month.

“If we go into a consortium, I’ve heard some people like

it because it drives the price down, but how much is it

going to drive it down,” Fleshman said. “However, in the

consortium, one of the biggest issues is they had a loophole

where they were allowed to technically raise money

for fuel. So, it would continue to go up, but it will

never come down.”

The board agreed to continue to consider the

consortium and discuss next steps at a later meeting.

In other news, the board discussed the police

levy the township is asking taxpayers to approve

and why they are asking for a permanent levy.

“I vowed then that we would build this back,”

Fleshman said. “We have good officers and they

have been leaving because they look at the history

of the township and how many levies have passed

and failed. We lose good people because they have

their own families and homes and they need a job

that they know that they’re going to be there.”

At a recent meeting, the board approved moving

forward with a 7.3-mill permanent police levy. This

will be the third time the department has asked

was also months behind in posting meeting

minutes, causing residents to question how

transparent the township was being.

At a recent meeting, the fiscal department

said there were plans to update the

minutes, but that they weren’t able to get

to them.

“So, we had some plans this week to

work on minutes, but that has not happened,”

Dunn said. “We had plans to get

some stuff caught up this week, but that

has not happened. I’m hoping to be back

next week if all goes well. So, we’ll see how

that goes. But that’s where everything

stands.”

While, Dunn said he knows it is an

issue, he said without working 12 to 16

hours a day there is no way to get them

caught up. However, with the implementation

of this new software, the department

can get the help it needs to update the minutes.

The software would simply translate all

that is said during the board meeting.

While the trustees approved using this

software to catch up on past meeting minutes,

they also wanted to confirm the fiscal

department will not become fully reliant on

this software and will review the minutes

before posting them online.

“We have an hour and a half, sometimes

two-hour meeting and it can take four

hours to listen to the tape and actually

transcribe it,” said Franklin Township

trustee John Fleshman. “So, what’s ended

up happening is you get behind with other

things. It will transcribe everything and

then basically you go through and make

sure it’s all correct as your backup as

you’re taking notes. So, what would take

four hours may take an hour. We are finding

a smarter way to do it.”

taxpayers for a levy.

In the fall, the township asked taxpayers to approve a

7.1-mill timed police levy, which would have replaced an

existing timed levy that is set to expire at the end of 2022,

as well as added an additional 3-mills to the levy.

That levy was rejected by voters with 56 percent of residents

voting against the levy. In the spring of 2021, voters

also turned down a 7.37-mill levy.

County to offer grant funding for businesses

An additional $8 million is now available

through the Columbus-Franklin

County Small Business Recovery Fund to

help central Ohio small businesses continue

to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic.

Grant funding will be prioritized for

businesses that are located in underserved

communities and are minority-, woman- or

veteran-owned.

“Small businesses are the backbone and

job creators of our community,” said

Franklin County Commission president

Erica Crawley. “We know that they were

impacted significantly by the pandemic

and their recovery has been slow. We’re

here to provide a fund that offers stability

and growth.

Crawley said about 100,000 businesses

closed in the first six months of the pandemic

and an estimated 3.5 million women

lost or left their jobs for a variety of issues,

including lack of childcare.

“Many businesses still struggle and

many childcare centers haven’t yet

reopened. That’s why this cooperative

effort is so important now,” she said.

The program is sponsored by the city of

Columbus and Franklin County, which

provided equal funding. The Ohio Small

Business Development Center at

Columbus State Community College will

provide program management, the Wells

Foundation will act as the fiduciary agent,

and Community Outreach Partners will

provide education, translation services and

guidance to local small business owners.

“Minority- and women-owned businesses

were more likely to miss their chance or

be passed over for Paycheck Protection

Program loans from the federal government,”

said Columbus Mayor Andrew

Ginther. “By putting these business owners

at the front of the line for local funding, we

hope to support business disproportionately

impacted by the pandemic, so they may

continue to keep their employees and customers

safe, and re-hire our residents to

steady, good-paying jobs.”

Businesses may apply for one of three

grants:

• $5,000 recovery grants for selfemployed,

single entity, sole proprietors

and sole owner LLCs.

• $10,000 recovery grants for small

businesses with at least one full-time

employee.

• $20,000 job restoration grants for

businesses with at least one full-time that

lost employees due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Businesses will receive an initial

$10,000 recovery grant and will be eligible

to receive an additional $10,000 for hiring

an additional full-time employee within

two month and maintaining their payroll

four months after receiving initial grant

funding.

“This grant does so much more than

help one business at a time. These grants

also help the Franklin County economy

overall. Small businesses account for more

than 40 percent of the national economy

and they are a critical part of all local

economies,” commissioner John O’Grady

said.

meeting, residents expressed concern

about residential development, asking

leaders what they are going to do to protect

the environment.

“There are new houses being built on

small lots and trees are being cut down to

build these houses,” said Debra Kurtz,

township resident. “This is eliminating

green space. Why did the zoning commission

allow this?”

Kurtz also questioned if the trustees

had oversight of the zoning commission

and if there is a way to stop the board from

issuing variances.

According to Prairie Township

Administrator Dave McAninch, the board

appoints the members of the zoning commission

and board of zoning appeals. The

trustees do not usually attend those meetings.

“If a piece of land is considered residential,

then the owners have the right to

make changes to their property like cutting

down trees,” said Prairie Township trustee

Cathy Schmelzer.

Trustee Rod Pritchard added that it is

inevitable the township will have zoning

variances.

“We need to show up to make sure they

understand the problem behind clearing

the lot,” Pritchard said. “Green space is

often required in residential areas, but in

this instance, they can’t tell a property

owner to put in green space.”

Pritchard also said a lot of developers

are looking for properties to renovate to

resell.

Residents said they are concerned about

future growth and potential gentrification.

“I’m very familiar with gentrification

and have experience in working through

that,” Pritchard said.

Residents wanted assurances that the

township would not let local neighborhoods

become overrun with new development.

The trustees listened to the concerns but

did not take formal action.

McAninch however, did ask the board to

approve and sign a letter addressing the

proposed Darby Crossing Project at 6145

West Broad St. in Galloway.

“This proposed project presents several

potential issues for Prairie Township and

its residents,” McAninch said. “This

In the letter, the township requested

that Darby Crossing GP, LLC be required

water drainage, as well as proper screening,

buffering and mitigation of lighting to

Dunking on a donkey

Messenger photo by Pat Donahue

London High School hosted a staff-vs.-students donkey basketball game recently

to raise funds to help a local student in his battle with cancer. Players were allowed

to walk, ride, push, pull or beg their donkeys up court. All shooting and passing

had to be done from atop their rides. The competition got more competitive as the

riders became more acquainted with their rides. The game ended in a tie that had

to be settled at the foul line to claim a victory for the teachers. Here, Logan Golde,

5, of Galloway enjoys a ride during intermission with the help of his mom, London

High School science teacher Heather Golde, and London sophomore Alex Homan.

The time is always

right for social work

March is Social Work Month, a month-long

celebration that shines the spotlight on the positive

impact social workers make in the community.

The National Association of Social Workers, a

professional membership and advocacy organization

for social workers, leads a nationwide awareness

campaign each year that includes a special

theme. This year’s theme, “The Time is Always

Right for Social Work,” emphasizes that social

work is needed now more than ever to address

health, economic, and societal issues for all populations.

In the spirit of acknowledging social

workers during this special month, Central Ohio

Area Agency on Aging (COAAA) thanks its

social workers and staff for ensuring that older

adults and individuals with disabilities receive the

help they need to live independently.

COAAA case managers, which include

licensed social workers and registered nurses,

arrange and coordinate in-home services – such

as home-delivered meals, homemaking, personal

care, and transportation – to help individuals live

independently at home.

Additionally, COAAA helps family caregivers

navigate long-term care options for their loved

ones and advises caregivers on ways to address

challenging caregiving issues. Join COAAA in

celebrating social workers during March and

throughout the year.

Franklin County Board of Commissioners: President Kevin L. Boyce • Commissioner John O’Grady, and Commissioner Erica C. Crawley

The Franklin County Board of Commissioners and The Franklin County Office on Aging join with the Messenger Newspaper in providing this update on aging issues in Franklin County.

We are providing HOPE

HOPE, Helping Our residents, and families with Purposeful Engagement,

is a new initiative by the Franklin County Office of Aging to support

senior residents and their families. For the duration of the HOPE campaign,

our agency will be reaching out directly to seniors, families, and

caregivers to check in on their health and inform them about services

available through the Office on Aging.

Each month, we will showcase several agency programs and services that

have assisted senior residents and their families since 1993. This month,

we are highlighting the importance of the COVID-19 vaccine, and providing

information on vaccines, boosters, and transportation. We will also

discuss resources that are available to help caregivers and give an overview

of our Senior Options Program. In April, we will highlight the

Kinship Support Program and the Home Repair Program. Lastly in May,

we will share the significance of our Adult Protective Services department,

and how members of the public can help in ending elder abuse.

Currently in Franklin County, 66.92 percent of the population has received

at least one dose of the vaccine. In reviewing the data and zip codes with

low vaccination rates from the January 12, 2022, Ohio COVID-19

Vaccine Administration by County & ZIP Code Report, our agency recognized

the emergent need to provide opportunities to increase the total

percentage of vaccinated individuals within Franklin County and apply

targeted focus on homebound older adults and their families living in zip

codes that have the lowest vaccination rates. Our agency also saw the need

to provide vaccine access to homebound adults, who otherwise would not

be able to get vaccinated. By working with Equitas Health, Franklin

County Public Health and Columbus Public Health, we have been able to

increase the number of homebound residents who received the vaccine.

Through our agency’s Senior Options Program, transportation to medical

appointments, including appointments for the COVID-19 vaccine and

booster shot, is being provided to older Franklin County residents. Not

only does our Senior Options Program assist senior residents in getting

around the county, but they also offer a wide array of services including:

• Adult Day Care

• Emergency Response Systems

• Home-Delivered Meals

• Home Care Services

• Nutritional Supplements, Incontinence Supplies, and Durable Medical

Equipment

Senior Options is not the only department within the Office on Aging that

is providing incredible resources to seniors and their families. Our Caregiver

Support Program provides short term support and services to families

to enhance and restore independence to the resident and the caregiver.

With over 53 million people in the United States in the role of an unpaid

family caregiver, and over 1.5 million of those people living in Ohio, we

have never seen the need higher than we are now. Our agency can provide

caregivers of older adults 60 years and older, who are non-paid, and who

have a demonstrated need for home care assistance, with resources to

help. We can also provide services to non-paid parents or relatives 55

years or older, caring for an adult child who has disabilities and show a

demonstrated need for home care assistance.

Program services include:

• Adult Day Services

• Caregiver Counseling

• Durable Medical Equipment

• Incontinent Supplies

• Institutional Respite Care

One of the many goals of our agency is to provide necessary resources to

our senior residents, and their families, so that they can remain independent,

safe, and together for as long as possible. In the upcoming months,

look out for our agency to continue to share resources including information

on our Kinship Support Program, Home Repair Program, and our

Adult Protective Services department. If you or someone you know needs

the services or programs listed above, and has not yet received a call from

us, please contact the Franklin County Office on Aging at 614-525-5230.

In Entertainment

“e Adam Project” has humor and heart

It is a truth universally acknowledged that we have

all wished we could travel back in time and talk to our

younger selves. For instance, if something really cool

happens — you start a dream job, you fall in love with

someone unexpected, you find a hairstyle that truly

flatters your face shape — there is an impulse to want

to reach back and share this experience with the awkward

husk you left behind, to give them a big hug and

whisper in their ear that (some) things will eventually

turn out to be okay. On the other side of that fantasy,

however, there is an impulse to want to reach back and

fix everything that went wrong, to guide yourself away

from bone-headed people and mistakes, and drastically

alter (some of) the circumstances you find your current

self in.

The desire to revisit and change fixed moments in

time is a complex and deeply human one, which is why

it makes for such an appealing premise within the

entertainment industry. Thousands of books, graphic

novels, movies, and television shows have dedicated to

this action and some can land in such a way that it

feels like an assassin slipped through time and

stabbed you in the heart. Fortunately for those who

hate that sensation, most forms of entertainment do

not leave that kind of emotional impact but that does

not mean they do not carry some form of value. The latest

film to center around this tricky premise offers

something that is largely humorous and adventurous,

but there is enough poignancy within to make it a little

heartwarming too (but not in the stabbing of the organ

kind of way).

In “The Adam Project,” Ryan Reynolds plays Adam

Reed, a fighter pilot from the year 2050. Things are not

going well in his timeline — he quips later that it’s like

“The Terminator” on a good day — and he is a hunted

man. Because time travel is possible at this point in

the future, he embarks on a solo mission back to the

year 2018 to try to fix the moment it all went so wrong.

Unfortunately for him, things continue to go wrong

because he jumps into the present day where he comes

face-to-face with his 12-year-old self (played with

Reynolds-like charm and wit by newcomer Walker

Scobell). Like so many adults floating about in this

world, Adam hates his younger self because all he sees

is someone weak, someone obnoxious, someone who

definitely deserves all the punches in the stomach he

takes at school.

We, the audience, however, do not see that. Well, to

be fair, he is quite obnoxious, but we also see that he is

still reeling from the sudden death of his father (Mark

South Central

Hilltop Spring Cleanup

The 20th annual South Central Hilltop Spring

Cleanup will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 23.

Volunteers will meet at Burroughs Park, 551 S.

Richardson Ave. For more information, look up the

South Central Hilltop Block Watch group on Facebook.

WNA accepting applications

for annual scholarship

The Westgate Neighbors Association is now accepting

applications for the 2022 Westgate neighborhood

scholarship. The $1,000 scholarship is awarded annually

to a qualified resident of Westgate who contributes

Ruffalo), irritated that his

mother (Jennifer Garner) won’t

open up about their mutual loss

and is so desperately lonely.

Though we may have some

mercy on the pre-teen because

of his recent trauma, older

Adam does not, relentlessly

poking at the failures he sees

while deftly deflecting the observations younger Adam

doles back (their relationship is both antagonistic and

loving- kind of like how we can be with ourselves).

With Older Adam stuck in the present as he recuperates

from an injury, the two start to form a quasibond

and then eventually work to save the others’ life

(another peril of time travel — having to save your reckless

older/younger self from themselves) when a villain

from the future shows up to put an end to Adam’s time

travelling mission to rectify the mistakes of the past.

While there are plenty of neat visuals and concepts,

“The Adam Project” does not reinvent the wheel in

terms of sci-fi action. It borrows much from beloved 80s

films (it owes quite a bit of its spirit to Steve

Spielberg’s “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial,” Richard

Donner’s “The Goonies,” and Robert Zemeckis’ “Back

to the Future”) but it also has a strength of its own

with the personal stories of the characters and the

sweet poignancy of realizing that your younger self

wasn’t as bad as you once thought.

For those who are hesitant to get invested in a timetravelling

story, fear not the scientific convolution as

this film just brushes upon the theories of what makes

it possible in the future. “The Adam Project” is less

interested in that aspect and more interested in pushing

out an adventurous film that is fast paced with lots

of humor and moments of heart-tugging schmaltz. It

surprisingly delivers in that regard.

“The Adam Project” is currently streaming on

Netflix.

Military News

www.columbusmessenger.com

Franklin Heights graduate honored to serve in Navy

Petty Officer 2nd Class Tyler Beck, a

native of Columbus, serves the U.S. Navy

aboard one of the world’s largest warships,

the U.S. Navy aircraft carrier USS Carl

Vinson.

Beck joined the Navy five years ago and

serves as an electrician’s mate.

“I joined the military for the educational

benefits offered and for the opportunity to

become a pilot,” said Beck.

Growing up in Columbus, Beck attended

Franklin Heights High School and graduated

in 2017. Today, Beck relies upon skills

and values similar to those found in

Columbus to succeed in the military.

“My upbringing in Columbus taught me

the value of hard work,” said Beck. “If you

work hard, good things will come.”

USS Carl Vinson, like each of the Navy’s

aircraft carriers, is designed for a 50-year

service life. When the air wing is

embarked, the ship carries more than 70

attack fighter jets, helicopters and other

aircraft, all of which take off from and land

aboard the carrier at sea. With more than

5,000 sailors serving aboard, Carl Vinson is

a self-contained mobile airport.

Aircraft carriers are often the first

response to a global crisis because of their

ability to operate freely in international

waters anywhere on the world’s oceans.

Carrier strike groups have the unique

advantage of mobility, making them far

more strategically advantageous than

fixed-site bases. No other weapon system

can deploy and operate forward with a fullsized,

nuclear-powered aircraft carrier’s

speed, endurance, agility, and the combat

capability of its air wing.

The Carl Vinson and its crew recently

returned to San Diego following an eightmonth

deployment to U.S. 3rd and 7th

Fleets areas of operation.

With more than 90 percent of all trade

traveling by sea, and 95 percent of the

world’s international phone and internet

traffic carried through fiber optic cables

lying on the ocean floor, Navy officials continue

to emphasize that the prosperity and

security of the United States is directly

linked to a strong and ready Navy.

Beck and the sailors he serves with have

many opportunities to achieve accomplishments

during their military service.

“My greatest accomplishment has been

making rank as a petty officer second

class,” said Beck. “My hard work and dedication

has resulted in me being promoted,

which gives me a chance to lead.”

As Beck and other sailors continue to

train and perform missions, they take

pride in serving their country in the United

States Navy.

“Serving in the Navy provides a great

sense of camaraderie,” said Beck. “I am a

part of a team who has my back, and I have

theirs.”

Tyler Beck
