Record year for MP<br />

scholarship auction<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

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

“You could tell from the minute you<br />

walked in the door, it was going to be a big<br />

day.”<br />

That’s how Chad Eisler, <strong>Madison</strong>-Plains<br />

Local Schools superintendent, described the<br />

atmosphere in the high school gym on<br />

<strong>March</strong> 5, the day of the 75th Annual <strong>Madison</strong>-Plains<br />

Scholastic Booster Auction.<br />

Eisler’s prediction was right.<br />

An estimated 300 people, roughly 100<br />

more than the event’s average, packed the<br />

gym to bid on items that ranged from a<br />

$1,000 discount on bean seeds to a generator,<br />

a mower, and handmade quilts.<br />

As it turned out, it was an especially generous<br />

crowd. The auction netted $43,208,<br />

shattering the previous record of $23,000<br />

set in 2020. In a typical year, the auction<br />

raises between $10,000 and $15,000. All<br />

proceeds go toward scholarships for graduating<br />

seniors and the annual scholarship<br />

banquet in May.<br />

Valerie Eades, Booster club president,<br />

was thrilled with the results. She credits<br />

the increase to a couple of factors. 1) Businesses<br />

donated items of higher value this<br />

year. 2) In advertising the auction, the club<br />

pushed the fact that this was the auction’s<br />

75th anniversary. The idea was to make<br />

everything bigger and better for the special<br />

occasion.<br />

“The Class of 1972 (the first graduating<br />

class from <strong>Madison</strong>-Plains High School) really<br />

jumped on board. They put out a challenge<br />

to other alumni classes to donate<br />

items,” Eades said.<br />

Twelve alumni classes answered the call,<br />

donating individual items and themed baskets<br />

of merchandise and gift cards.<br />

The biggest seller of the day, though, was<br />

a cake. The selling and re-selling of a cake<br />

is an auction tradition that dates back several<br />

decades to when Betty Wilson, and<br />

later her son, Tim Wilson, would donate a<br />

hickory nut cake. In 2018, Vallery Farmhouse<br />

Bakery picked up where the Wilson<br />

family left off. That also was the year that<br />

<strong>Madison</strong>-Plains senior Pegasio Xenikis prepares for a squat at the Ohio High School<br />

State Powerlifting Meet, held <strong>March</strong> 19 at Kenton High School.<br />

Showing their strength<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

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

Members of the <strong>Madison</strong>-Plains High<br />

School powerlifting team proved once<br />

again they are among the strongest student-athletes<br />

in the state of Ohio.<br />

The Eagles came away from the Ohio<br />

High School State Powerlifting Meet, held<br />

<strong>March</strong> 19 at Kenton High School, with<br />

three individual state champions and two<br />

team school records.<br />

Placing first in their weight classes<br />

were junior Molly Barber and seniors Savannah<br />

Reed and Tyson Guiette. Reed<br />

also registered the top squat (265 pounds)<br />

in her weight class. Guiette had the top<br />

squat (470 pounds) and top deadlift (465<br />

pounds) in his weight class.<br />

The girls’ team placed second in overall<br />

team total with 5,105 pounds, breaking<br />

the previous school record of 4,785 pounds<br />

AUCTION<br />

cancer.<br />

“In the process of all of that happening,<br />

we decided to start a scholarship in<br />

Brandy’s name. So, we matched up the cake<br />

with the scholarship,” said Eades, Brandy’s<br />

sister.<br />

The way it goes, a bidder “buys” the cake<br />

then gives it back to be auctioned off again.<br />

This process usually goes a few rounds before<br />

pieces of the cake are sold off. Each of<br />

the last several years, the cake has brought<br />

in about $3,000. This year, it was sold five<br />

times before being sold off in 13 pieces, raising<br />

a total of $16,700.<br />

“We were shocked. I know my parents<br />

were, I don’t know if ‘happy’ is the right<br />

word, but honored,” Eades said.<br />

Two $1,500 scholarships in Brandy’s<br />

memory go to one boy and one girl each year<br />

based on their academics and involvement<br />

in athletics and 4-H or FFA. It is one of<br />

many scholarships the booster club gives<br />

out each year. The others are: two $1,500<br />

awards in honor of former teachers, Linville<br />

Herald, Steve Jackson and Kenneth Moody;<br />

two $500 awards for students going to trade<br />

schools; eight $1,000 awards to the top 15<br />

percent of students in the class based on<br />

grade point average; and book scholarships<br />

($175 each) to all graduating seniors who<br />

plan to further their education after high<br />

school.<br />

Because of the extra success of this year’s<br />

auction, the booster club plans to increase<br />

the amount of each of these scholarships<br />

and possibly give out more scholarships<br />

overall.<br />

This year’s auction committee included<br />

Continued from page 1<br />

set in 2019. The boys’ team placed fourth in<br />

overall team total with 12,130 pounds,<br />

breaking the previous school record of<br />

12,040 pounds set last year. Overall team<br />

totals are determined by adding together<br />

each team member’s best bench, deadlift<br />

and squat performances at the meet. For the<br />

girls, the best performances of eight lifters<br />

count toward the overall total; for the boys,<br />

12 lifters’ efforts count.<br />

Coach Mike Siders is proud of his entire<br />

team’s showing at state.<br />

“They battled all day,” he said.<br />

In addition to the standout performances<br />

already mentioned, senior Rylee Davis had<br />

the best deadlift (325 pounds) in her class,<br />

and junior Ady Hull, had the best squat (265<br />

pounds) in her class.<br />

The top six girls and the top 12 boys in<br />

each class were named state placers. Other<br />

Marathon and half-marathon now has 5K, too<br />

The new medal design for the London Marathon, Half<br />

Marathon and 5K<br />

Caelan Mars, son of David Mars, race director for the<br />

London Marathon, Half-Marathon and 5K, models this<br />

year’s t-shirt design. Set for April 30, the races will start<br />

and finish at Merri-Mac Park.<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

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

The London, Ohio, marathon and half-marathon<br />

race made its debut last spring. New features, including<br />

the addition of a 5K option, are planned for the<br />

event’s second go-around.<br />

“We want to try to attract more local participation,”<br />

said David Mars, race director, about the addition<br />

of the 5K.<br />

Those running the marathon (26.2 miles) and halfmarathon<br />

(13 miles) will toe the line at 7 a.m. April<br />

30. Those running the 5K (3.1 miles) will head out 15<br />

minutes later. The races start and finish at Merri-<br />

Mac Park, with routes winding through downtown<br />

London and onto the bike path.<br />

Also new this year are age group awards, in the<br />

form of customized t-shirts, and virtual options for all<br />

three distances. Cash bonuses will be awarded to<br />

anyone who breaks last year’s course records in the<br />

marathon and half-marathon. Additionally, organizers<br />

have nearly doubled the prize amounts for the<br />

highly competitive half-marathon to $600 for first<br />

place, $300 for second, and $150 for third. The<br />

marathon prize money is $150 for first, $100 for second,<br />

and $50 for third.<br />

“We want to get people excited about racing and<br />

really bring a quality race to London,” Mars said<br />

about the changes.<br />

Last year’s event attracted approximately 200<br />

runners. The male and female winners of the<br />

marathon and half-marathon plan to return for this<br />

year’s event. Counted among the people who have already<br />

signed up are two Olympics Trials qualifiers,<br />

Mars said.<br />

Once again, the race will sport a tongue-in-cheek<br />

British theme, playing off of the London, Ohio/London,<br />

England connection. A bagpiper will play, course<br />

markings will feature British landmarks, and the<br />

Union Jack will fly outside downtown businesses<br />

staying open late on Friday and early on Saturday.<br />

Race packet pickup the night before the race will take<br />

place at Fine Designs & Interiors, a London business<br />

double-deckered out in a British theme.<br />

“Our top priorities are, of course, safety of the runners<br />

and that everybody has to have a good time,”<br />

<strong>March</strong> 29: Vietnam Veterans Day<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

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

Every day is a good day to thank a military veteran<br />

for their service. A special day for honoring Vietnam<br />

veterans is coming up this week.<br />

Every year, <strong>March</strong> 29 is observed in the United<br />

States as Vietnam Veterans Day. The date commemorates<br />

the day the last U.S. combat troops left Vietnam<br />

in 1973.<br />

U.S. involvement in Vietnam started with the deployment<br />

of advisors in the early 1950s. The first U.S.<br />

combat troops—3,500 Marines—arrived in Vietnam in<br />

1965. The last U.S. personnel were evacuated in 1975.<br />

More than 58,000 U.S. military personnel, including<br />

17 from <strong>Madison</strong> County, Ohio, died over the course of<br />

the war. To date, approximately 400 former prisoners<br />

of war are still living and more than 1,500 individuals<br />

are still missing in action.<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> County’s chapter of the Vietnam Veterans<br />

of America is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.<br />

Chapter 746 is planning an event for later this year to<br />

honor the anniversary.<br />

Chapter members provide new American and<br />

POW/MIA flags to schools, participate in local parades,<br />

and hold a flag disposal ceremony each year. They also<br />

place flags on all military veterans’ graves at the Summerford,<br />

Oak Hill and St. Patrick cemeteries and help<br />

American Legion Post 105 place flags at the Lafayette<br />

cemetery.<br />

The group meets the fourth Sunday of each month at<br />

different locations. The next meeting is scheduled for 1<br />

p.m. <strong>March</strong> 27 at AMVETS Post 19 at <strong>Madison</strong> Lake,<br />

London. Officers are: Dave Cunningham, commander<br />

and interim treasurer; John Cunningham, vice commander;<br />

and Terry Arbogast, secretary. To learn more,<br />

call Dave Cunningham at (740) 852-0331.<br />

Dave Cunningham also serves as one of five commissioners<br />

for <strong>Madison</strong> County Veterans Services. Veterans<br />

Services can help any military service man or<br />

woman with information about everything from benefits<br />

to rides to military doctor appointments. To learn more,<br />

call (740) 852-0676.<br />

Mars said. “If we get these two things, everything else will be<br />

great.”<br />

Mars welcomes anyone who wants to help as a volunteer. Tasks<br />

include handing out water and gels at aid stations, supervising intersections,<br />

and cheering on the runners.<br />

“The No. 1 comment I got back last year was how great our volunteers<br />

were,” Mars said.<br />

Members of the London eRaiders compete in London High Schools esports lab.<br />

LHS eRaiders on a roll<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

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

The London eRaiders, London City<br />

Schools’ esports team, has cleared some<br />

notable levels since its founding in the fall<br />

of 2019. Among them is an invitation to<br />

COSI’s Big Science Celebration set for<br />

May 7 in Columbus.<br />

Dillan Shumaker, the team’s advisor<br />

and the school district’s technology coordinator,<br />

and a few members of the team will<br />

man a booth at the celebration. Their job:<br />

To introduce festival goers to the world of<br />

competitive video-gaming.<br />

“We will bring a computer and gaming<br />

equipment with us. We’re hoping to do a<br />

hands-on thing where we hand people a<br />

game controller or mouse so they can play<br />

a game while the students walk them<br />

through it,” Shumaker said.<br />

The student gamers will share information<br />

about when, where and how they compete<br />

in esports. Shumaker will provide<br />

visiting school administrators with details<br />

about the financial and organizational<br />

sides of setting up an esports program.<br />

Even as Shumaker and his team serve<br />

as ambassadors for the relatively new<br />

sport, Shumaker is still in awe of just how<br />

big a deal esports are.<br />

“It’s been eye-opening these past couple<br />

of years, just seeing how many people are<br />

into it at a competitive level, even right<br />

here in London,” he said.<br />

The eRaiders operate as both a club for<br />

casual play in the off-season and as a competitive<br />

team in-season. They compete in<br />

five different video games. In June 2021,<br />

they placed second in Rocket League at<br />

the state championship. This past fall,<br />

they made it to the regional finals in Fort-<br />

(From left) London esports<br />

students Reid Gates, Vernon<br />

Hochstetler and James<br />

Keplinger celebrate with<br />

their coach, Dillan Shumaker,<br />

after winning the<br />

Rocket League regional<br />

championship this past fall.<br />

Gates recently accepted an<br />

offer to play esports at<br />

Mount Vernon Nazarene University.<br />

He is the first London<br />

student to receive an<br />

esports college scholarship.<br />

nite and the state semi-finals in Rocket<br />

League. The <strong>2022</strong> spring season started<br />

<strong>March</strong> 7.<br />

In both the fall and spring, the team<br />

competes several times per week. Early on<br />

each season, they play primarily online.<br />

When regional competition rolls around,<br />

they move to in-person play at Game<br />

Arena in Hilliard. The state finals take<br />

place at Akron University in June.<br />

This past fall, a few coaches representing<br />

college esports programs attended the<br />

regionals in Hilliard to scope out the<br />

emerging talent.<br />

“That was another eye-opener for me,”<br />

Shumaker said.<br />

Senior Reid Gates, who excels in<br />

Rocket League, is London’s first student to<br />

earn an esports college scholarship. From<br />

among multiple offers, he chose Mount<br />

Vernon Nazarene University where he<br />

will play on the school’s Rocket League<br />

team, major in exercise science with an<br />

emphasis on athletic training, and possibly<br />

minor in youth ministry.<br />

Gates won’t be the first London High<br />

School graduate to go on to play esports at<br />

the next level. At least one other has already<br />

experienced college competition.<br />

Will Stucke, Class of 2021, played for<br />

Wright State University last fall.<br />

Approximately 50 students participated<br />

in London’s esports program in the<br />

fall. Approximately 40 are taking part this<br />

spring.<br />

COSI’s Big Science Celebration is part<br />

of a four-day festival that promotes handson<br />

STEM (science, technology, engineering<br />

and math) experiences and STEM<br />

careers. For more about the festival, visit<br />

Rotary Student of the Month: <strong>Madison</strong>-Plains<br />

Honest and enthusiastic<br />

The London Rotary Club is<br />

pleased to honor senior Ty Sollars<br />

as <strong>Madison</strong>-Plains High<br />

School’s <strong>March</strong> Student of the<br />

Month.<br />

Students of the month are<br />

selected by school administrators<br />

based on their academic<br />

and extracurricular achievement<br />

and positive character.<br />

Ty has a 3.57 grade point<br />

average, ranking him 17th in<br />

his class. His favorite class is<br />

Ty Sollars<br />

FFA-Ag. Ty has been on the<br />

basketball team all four years of high school,<br />

serving as a team captain his freshman,<br />

sophomore and senior years. He also has<br />

been a member of the powerlifting team and<br />

the baseball team for the past three years.<br />

Ty has participated in FFA throughout<br />

high school, earning the chapter award his<br />

sophomore year. He has been involved with<br />

FCCLA his sophomore, junior and senior<br />

years. Additionally, he has been a scholarathlete<br />

“She is more than a teacher. She puts in<br />

the extra effort to care about each of us personally<br />

and makes calls to our parents, even<br />

when she has a lot going on. She always<br />

strives to make our class fun<br />

and interesting,” he said.<br />

Regarding Ty, Jarvis said,<br />

“I have had the pleasure of<br />

teaching Ty for the past three<br />

years. Ty is one of the most<br />

honest, hard-working, and respectful<br />

students in my class.<br />

His work ethic and self-motivation<br />

are beyond his years.<br />

“Ty brings an enthusiasm to<br />

the cooking class that rubs off<br />

on his peers. I get so excited<br />

when I say ‘free day’ to see<br />

what kind of food he cooks next.<br />

“I am honored that I have been able to be<br />

a small part of his journey. The quality I most<br />

admire about Ty is his commitment and dedication<br />

to his family and friends, as well as<br />

the respect he has for his teachers. Ty is definitely<br />

worthy of this award, and <strong>Madison</strong>-<br />

Plains should be proud.”<br />

<strong>Madison</strong>-Plains resurrects facilities committee<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

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

The facilities at <strong>Madison</strong>-Plains Local Schools are<br />

aging. Superintendent Chad Eisler is resurrecting a<br />

committee formed two years ago to discuss the future of<br />

the facilities—whether that means repairs, renovations,<br />

and/or construction. The committee was put on hold<br />

during the pandemic.<br />

“We’re at the point where we have some significant<br />

needs, so we are reconvening the committee,” Eisler<br />

Warming up for the season<br />

said at the school board’s <strong>March</strong> 15 meeting<br />

A small group will begin meeting in April to get discussions<br />

started. Later on, the group will expand to include<br />

more people to help determine what direction to<br />

take.<br />

“I want as many people to be a part of this as possible,”<br />

Eisler said.<br />

In addition to addressing building needs, the group<br />

will talk about options for repairing the outdoor track.<br />

The playground equipment needs attention, too.<br />

<strong>Madison</strong>-Plains freshman shortstop McKenzie Reeves (left) gathers up a hot one at second base and makes<br />

the throw to first. The Eagles faced the Hamilton Township Rangers in a scrimmage on <strong>March</strong> 21. The Rangers<br />

came out on top with an 8-3 win. The game marked the second scrimmage for the Eagles whose regular season<br />

starts <strong>March</strong> 26 with a doubleheader at home against Franklin Heights (11 a.m.) and Mount Gilead (3 p.m.).<br />

Some of the repairs, renovations or construction will be years in<br />

the making; some are more immediate needs, said board President<br />

Mark Mason.<br />

COVID-19 reporting changes<br />

The Ohio Department of Health has changed its requirements<br />

regarding reports of positive COVID-19 cases. School districts no<br />

longer need to:<br />

• maintain a COVID-19 reporting system for parents to report<br />

positive cases;<br />

• have a designated COVID-19 coordinator;<br />

• report positive cases among staff, students and coaches to parents;<br />

• report to the local health department, unless the school district<br />

tests a student and the result is positive.<br />

As of <strong>March</strong> 15, the district had four suspected cases of COVID-<br />

19 and no confirmed cases, according to Superintendent Chad<br />

Eisler.<br />

“With the numbers being so low around the state, things are beginning<br />

to return to a more normal, pre-COVID form of operation,”<br />

Eisler said.<br />

Learning about career options<br />

The school board approved a three-year agreement with Tolles<br />

Career and Technical Center to provide career exploration programming<br />

at the junior high and high school starting next school year.<br />

The goal is to offer a semester of the programming to students in<br />

grades 7-8 and a year of programming to freshmen or sophomores.<br />

Tolles hopes to implement these satellite courses—“Career Explorations”<br />

and “Launching Your Career”—at each of its partner school<br />

districts.<br />

“It will expose (students) to a lot of different things. I think it’s<br />

a good thing for <strong>Madison</strong>-Plains students,” Mason said.<br />

Personnel<br />

The board approved the hiring of Jim Noble as a substitute bus<br />

driver. The board accepted the following resignations: Dillan Rice,<br />

head coach for grades 7-9 boys’ track; Aaron Pertuset, head coach<br />

for boys’ varsity soccer; Elizabeth Robinson, bus driver; and Shelby<br />

McCarty, agriscience teacher.<br />

Employee recognition<br />

Eisler recognized Kay Riegel, math specialist for grades K-6, as<br />

the <strong>Madison</strong>-Plains employee of the month. A <strong>Madison</strong>-Plains graduate,<br />

Riegel has worked for the district for 32 years ago. She spent<br />

19 years as a fourth- and fifth-grade teacher at Mount Sterling Elementary<br />

and two years at Midway Elementary. When the district<br />

consolidated onto one campus, she taught third grade for 10 years.<br />

She took on the role of math specialist this year.<br />

“Mrs. Riegel has touched the lives of many students at <strong>Madison</strong>-<br />

Plains over the course of her career, and her dedication and desire<br />

for education does not go unnoticed,” wrote Principal Brad Miller.<br />

“You can see that she is a teacher who loves teaching, and she<br />

teaches children to love learning,” wrote Melanie Moss-Lenz.<br />

The board’s next regular meeting will take place at 7 p.m. April<br />

19 in the district meeting room at the elementary school.<br />

Central Townships Joint Fire<br />

District gets training grant<br />

Central Townships Joint Fire District received a $3,756 training<br />

reimbursement grant from the Ohio Department of Commerce’s Division<br />

of State Fire Marshal. The district provides service to Deer<br />

Creek, Monroe, Oak Run, Paint, Union and Somerford townships<br />

in <strong>Madison</strong> County.<br />

Central Townships was one of 208 fire departments in 70 Ohio<br />

counties to receive a grant for <strong>2022</strong>. The departments are selected<br />

based on a variety of criteria, including the department’s annual<br />

budget, annual number of fire incidents, and the resident population<br />

the department serves.<br />

While all firefighters, career or volunteer, are required to have<br />

the same level of basic training for state certification, these grants<br />

help fire departments go beyond the basics to complete more advanced,<br />

nationally recognized training.

Search warrants result in two arrests in London<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

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

On <strong>March</strong> 22, the <strong>Madison</strong> County Major<br />

Crimes Task Force, along with the Franklin<br />

County Sheriff’s Office SWAT and Special<br />

Investigation Unit, executed search warrants<br />

at two London locations, resulting in<br />

two arrests.<br />

Investigators obtained search warrants<br />

for an apartment on Lamplight Court and<br />

an apartment on Sheffield Boulevard as a<br />

result of ongoing drug investigations.<br />

At the Lamplight Court location, investigators<br />

recovered significant amounts of suspected<br />

cocaine, marijuana and U.S. currency.<br />

At the Sheffield Boulevard location, they recovered<br />

a handgun, small amounts of narcotics,<br />

and related instruments.<br />

Law enforcement offers recovered significant<br />

amounts of suspected cocaine and<br />

marijuana during a search of an apartment<br />

on Lamplight Court in London.<br />

Stevin J. Howard, 33, of London was<br />

charged with a felony count of possession of<br />

drugs. Dwaine M. Garrett, 33, of London<br />

was charged with the third-degree felony of<br />

weapons under disability which means he is<br />

not lawfully allowed to own a gun due to<br />

prior offenses. Investigators may pursue<br />

further charges pending lab analysis.<br />

“The teams executed both locations very<br />

well. There were no reported injuries. We<br />

were able to safely get the two into custody,”<br />

said <strong>Madison</strong> County Sheriff John Swaney.<br />

The <strong>Madison</strong> County Major Crimes Task<br />

Force consists of representatives from the<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> County Sheriff’s Office and London<br />

Police Department. Both agencies work<br />

closely with the Franklin County Drug Task<br />

Force.<br />

Swaney and London Police Chief Glenn<br />

Nicol encourage community members to<br />

share information and tips about suspected<br />

criminal activity.<br />

“We can’t be everywhere. If anyone sees<br />

any kind of suspicious activity or thinks<br />

something is going on, we ask that they contact<br />

us to report it so we can check it out,”<br />

Swaney said.<br />

In a social media post following the<br />

searches, the Sheriff’s Office stated: “While<br />

the investigations may take time, community<br />

involvement is paramount to successfully<br />

combating crime, especially drug<br />

trafficking.”<br />

Law enforcement officers from the <strong>Madison</strong> County Major Crimes Task Force and<br />

Franklin County Sheriff’s Office execute a search warrant at an apartment on Sheffield<br />

Boulevard in London on the morning of <strong>March</strong> 22. The officers also executed a search<br />

warrant at an apartment on Lamplight Court in London the same day.<br />
