No more grandstand at the county fairgrounds<br />

Revitalization plan<br />

includes parking<br />

and amphitheater<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

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

One of the largest and oldest structures<br />

on the <strong>Madison</strong> County Fairgrounds is no<br />

more. Over the past several weeks, crews<br />

dismantled the grandstand that stood on<br />

the grounds for more than a century.<br />

The structure had sat idle for the past<br />

several years. Due to deterioration, the<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> County Fair Board closed off the<br />

grandstands’ far east and far west seating<br />

sections in 2018, then deemed the entire<br />

building off-limits in 2019 after the county’s<br />

insurance company and a structural engineer<br />

declared it not safe for occupancy.<br />

“The structural supports were rotten at<br />

the ground... Wood that should be straight was bowed badly,” said<br />

Paul Gross, fair board president, adding that rot also was a problem<br />

six feet up in places.<br />

The estimated cost to restore the building was $800,000.<br />

“Even that would have been a temporary fix,” Gross said.<br />

The decision to tear down the grandstand came as part of a new<br />

revitalization plan for the future of the entire<br />

fairgrounds, Gross explained. A civil engineering<br />

firm took a look at the property,<br />

then developed a plan that addresses everything<br />

from land use to traffic flow.<br />

“Part of what they found is that 40 percent<br />

of our real estate isn’t being used for<br />

fair purposes or any other purpose during<br />

the year—that area used to be the track,”<br />

Gross said.<br />

At one time, horse racing was a primary<br />

activity at the county fair. Racing no longer<br />

takes place.<br />

“That was a big part of the decision (to<br />

remove the grandstand). Why have a grandstand<br />

facing unused property equal to 40<br />

percent?” Gross continued.<br />

The revitalization plan calls for using<br />

part of the former track area for hundreds<br />

of new parking spaces.<br />

“Parking always has been a real issue.<br />

It’s probably the top complaint every year<br />

at the fair,” Gross said. “So, part of the revitalization<br />

plan is that, in the infield, we’re<br />

going to create a massive parking lot. It will<br />

provide lots more parking and improve the<br />

traffic flow on the grounds.”<br />

The plan also calls for an amphitheater<br />

facing a stage in what is now the track area.<br />

See FAIRGROUNDS page 2<br />

Taken a few weeks ago, this photo shows the early stages of demolition of the grandstand at the <strong>Madison</strong> County Fairgrounds. The<br />

teardown is now complete. Crews salvaged as much of the materials as possible to be reused on the grounds or sold.<br />

A civil engineering firm put together this comprehensive plan for revitalization of the entire fairgrounds. It calls<br />

for using part of the former horse racing track and infield for installation of a massive parking lot. Space also<br />

is set aside for events such as truck pulls, demolition derby, and the rodeo. An amphitheater, open-air pavilion,<br />

and other improvements also are part of the revitalization plan.

trucks, dirt drag races, tug-a-truck, motocross and truck<br />

pulls, all of which are on the schedule for the <strong>2022</strong> <strong>Madison</strong><br />

County Fair.<br />

Other improvements in the revitalization plan are<br />

installation of an open-air pavilion, construction of a<br />

second set of bathrooms with a shower house next to the<br />

camping area, and installation of an outdoor steer tieout<br />

area, among other improvements.<br />

As for a timeline for these changes, Gross said the<br />

fair board’s budget will dictate what gets done when.<br />

“We want to do things as cost effectively as possible<br />

salute will end the ceremony. The public is welcome to<br />

attend.<br />

On <strong>May</strong> 18, area veterans placed flags on veterans’<br />

graves at the following cemeteries: Big Plain, Deercreek-Lafayette,<br />

Kirkwood, Oak Hill, Paint Township,<br />

Range, St. Patrick and Somerford.<br />

• Mount Sterling<br />

Mount Sterling American Legion Post 417 will host<br />

a Memorial Day ceremony at 10 a.m. <strong>May</strong> 30 at Pleasant<br />

Cemetery. Those who plan to participate are asked<br />

to assemble at the cemetery at 9:30. The <strong>Madison</strong>-<br />

Plains High School band will perform. The Rev. Dr.<br />

Karen Crawford of First United Methodist Church of<br />

Mount Sterling is the guest speaker. A salute will be<br />

fired to end the service.<br />

Following the ceremony at the cemetery, a short<br />

service will take place at Veterans Memorial Park<br />

across from Mount Sterling Town Hall.<br />

Prior to Memorial Day, Legion members will place<br />

flags on veterans graves at 6 p.m. <strong>May</strong> 26 at the cemetery.<br />

The public is invited to help.<br />

• West Jefferson<br />

American Legion Post 201 and Veterans of Foreign<br />

Wars Post 7005 and their auxiliaries invite the public<br />

to attend a Memorial Day ceremony at 12 p.m. <strong>May</strong> 30<br />

at Pleasant Hill Cemetery, West Jefferson. The Legion’s<br />

honor guard will provide a three-volley salute<br />

with rifles. The VFW will provide the color guard.<br />

Bob Allen, a decorated Army officer who flew helicopters<br />

in Vietnam, is the guest speaker. The son of a career<br />

Army veteran, Allen grew up in the military way of life<br />

and traveled the world with his family. This upbringing<br />

provided the foundation for Allen’s passion for veterans<br />

and his work with veteran affiliated organizations.<br />

Since 1975, Allen has been trained to be a counselor<br />

and “soul healer,” focusing on psychological and emotional<br />

issues relating to veterans. He co-founded Awakenings,<br />

an organization that promotes, cares for, and<br />

heals veterans through peer mentoring programs. He<br />

also is a public speaker on veterans issues.<br />

After leaving military service, Allen flew as a corporate<br />

pilot for a few years before launching a career in<br />

higher education. Before retiring in 2013, he served for<br />

34 years as the head of admissions and enrollment for<br />

private colleges and universities in Arizona, Florida,<br />

Missouri and Ohio. Currently, he assists Ohio’s Hospice<br />

as head of the American Pride Veterans care program.<br />

Allen and his wife, Shari, live in Columbus. They<br />

have two adult children whose families live in the<br />

greater Columbus area.<br />

but, at the same time, as fast as possible. Some things<br />

we are trying to get ready for this year’s fair; some<br />

might be five years down the road. We hope to have the<br />

open-air pavilion and the mounded grass done for this<br />

year’s fair.”<br />

This year’s <strong>Madison</strong> County Fair is July 9-16.<br />

In the meantime, the plan is to recycle as much of<br />

the salvaged grandstand materials as possible and sell<br />

the rest for scrap. Some of the wood will be repurposed<br />

around the fairgrounds, some will be sold as reclaimed<br />

wood, and some might be made available to the public<br />

to purchase for nostalgic reasons, Gross said.<br />

Demolition started several weeks ago.<br />

“We could have had it done in a week, but we wanted<br />

to recycle and save as much as we could. We went the<br />

path that was clearly longer but, I think, much more responsible,”<br />

Gross said.

The London Lions Club is now in its 76th<br />

year of serving London and the <strong>Madison</strong>-<br />

Plains and West Jefferson school districts.<br />

Lions Club International has been serving<br />

the world since its inception in 1916 in<br />

Chicago, Ill. As part of the centennial celebrations<br />

around the world, the London club<br />

spearheaded a project to build a bridge over<br />

the creek at the lower part of Cowling Park.<br />

The club enlisted the help of <strong>Madison</strong><br />

County Engineer Bryan Dhume and his office,<br />

along with the city of London and Access<br />

Cowling, to get the bridge sited,<br />

designed and built. The ongoing efforts of<br />

Access Cowling to create a park that was accessible<br />

to everyone was the inspiration.<br />

Lions club members named the bridge<br />

“Noah’s Bridge” in memory of Noah Hagmeier<br />

who tragically passed away at a<br />

young age. Roby’s Memorial Design & Lettering<br />

donated a marker that was placed on<br />

the west side of the bridge. It was the Hagmeier<br />

family who approached the city of<br />

London about purchasing accessible playground<br />

equipment with money the family<br />

wanted to donate.<br />

Recently, Gary Likens, president of the<br />

London Lions for <strong>2022</strong>-23, suggested the<br />

club treat the wood decking to help preserve<br />

the bridge for the future. Likens, who has a<br />

of Noah’s Bridge at Cowling Park.<br />

care of the project in his spare time and even donated the sealant.<br />

For more information about the London Lions Club, the public<br />

is invited to attend a meeting. The Lions meet at 12 p.m. the first<br />

Tuesday of each month at the M&M Diner, 165 E. Center St., and<br />

at 6 p.m. the third Tuesday of each month at Eades Insurance<br />

Latest Dr. Strange film feels like a rough draft<br />

There have been 28 films released within the Marvel Cinematic<br />

Universe, and I can no longer whip up any genuine sense of excitement<br />

over the prospect of watching another. However, I admit to<br />

experiencing a slight stirring of interest toward its latest, “Doctor<br />

Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.”<br />

This exceedingly rare creation of a long-lost sensation had little<br />

to do with a particular fondness for the title character—despite wielding<br />

mystical powers, his personality tends to run a bit dry—and more<br />

to do with a love of a particular word within the title itself.<br />

The multiverse, by definition, offers infinite possibilities of<br />

worlds beyond our own. In some theories, a different version of us<br />

is inhabiting these worlds, and we don’t always have to be human<br />

or have traditional human parts (see the hotdog fingers universe in<br />

the utterly fantastic “Everything Everywhere All at Once”).<br />

Exploring the multiverse can bring so much creativity to books,<br />

television and film, hence the reason I was somewhat looking forward<br />

to the latest entry in the mostly same MCU. Upon watching<br />

“Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” I can say it definitely<br />

has a style that sets itself apart from its predecessors, but it<br />

also continues to lack in true character development and character<br />

continuity through-lines.<br />

Though still arrogant to a fault, Dr. Stephen Strange (Benedict<br />

Cumberbatch) has been humbled and haunted since we last saw<br />

him in a solo film—humbled because his love, Christine Palmer<br />

(Rachel McAdams), has fallen for another; haunted because of the<br />

choices he made to allow half the population to turn to dust for five<br />

years. He believes a side effect of his guilt are terrifying nightmares<br />

of being chased and eaten by an otherworldly octopus-like creature<br />

but he can’t shake the sensation it might be real.<br />

While he is attending a wedding reception shortly thereafter, a<br />

ruckus outside gains his attention.<br />

During an initial investigation<br />

of the cause, he sees a<br />

young girl from his dreams<br />

being chased by the same otherworldly<br />

octopus-like creature that was the cause of his<br />

death. Fortunately for him, things do not go as they do<br />

in dreamland, but he does find out that this girl, America<br />

Chaves (Xochitl Gomez), has the ability to leap into<br />

any multiverse with one caveat—it only happens when<br />

she is scared.<br />

She tells Stephen that another version of him did, in<br />

fact, die via otherworldly octopus-like creature, but it is<br />

she that is being haunted and hunted, not him. He has<br />

just been helping her try to discover who wants to steal<br />

her powers while sometimes betraying her along the way.<br />

Determined to not end up like his deceiving and deceased<br />

multiverse counterpart, the sorcerer enlists the<br />

help of Wong (Benedict Wong), now Sorcerer Supreme,<br />

and Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen), now the Scarlet<br />

Witch, to help him find a powerful book of magic that<br />

would allow them to stop this unknown adversary before<br />

the multiverse is put into any danger. But he soon discovers<br />

that sometimes the enemy hides in plain sight.<br />

Though the film follows many of the familiar Marvel<br />

beats, “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness”<br />

embraces darker themes in a way its predecessors have<br />

not and maybe could not. There is a heavier feeling to<br />

this movie, a more sinister vibe, and that is mostly due<br />

to its director, Sam Raimi.<br />

Marvel has a reputation for reeling in some of the individualistic<br />

flair of its directors, but they seemed to<br />

have allowed Raimi to go wild to a certain extent. While<br />

The National Day of Prayer was held on <strong>May</strong> 5. In<br />

the village of Mount Sterling, the event took place at the<br />

town gazebo. Nine area churches were represented.<br />

You could feel the power of prayer there. When we<br />

all pray to God, great things happen!<br />

I think more could have been<br />

done to establish off-beat multiverses<br />

(we get a glimpse of a<br />

paint verse, but it features more<br />

Earth-like verses), his focus is<br />

instead on adding touches of visual<br />

horror, like bloodied characters<br />

crawling out of mirrors,<br />

screaming souls of the damned<br />

reaching out to choke the living,<br />

and, on occasion, the snapping<br />

of a neck and a clothed evisceration.<br />

Watching this film was an amazing experience, especially<br />

when we got to see the awesome power of witchcraft<br />

and wizardry, but listening to it was a different<br />

experience altogether. Some of the dialogue, written by<br />

“Loki” scribe Michael Waldron, was so bad it nearly took<br />

me out of the place of awe I felt while watching the<br />

movie. It almost feels like the final script was a rough<br />

draft, an unfinished product that needed to pay more<br />

attention to character development, character relationships,<br />

and character motivation.<br />

While there are plenty of things to like about “Doctor<br />

Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” such as the horror-inspired<br />

visuals and the acting from Cumberbatch<br />

and Olsen, especially, there are also plenty of things<br />

that could have been better to make this a truly exciting<br />

cinematic experience.<br />

London Correctional holds employee recognition<br />

As part of the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation<br />

and Correction’s Employee Recognition<br />

Week, held <strong>May</strong> 2-6, London<br />

Correctional Institution recognized several<br />

staff members for their service.<br />

<strong>Messenger</strong> photo by Kristy Zurbrick<br />

London Correctional Institution employees honored during Employee Recognition Week<br />

include: (from left) Vickey Justus, Brandon Miller, James Reeves, and Gregory Miller.<br />

Corrections Officer of the Year<br />

Brandon Miller began his career in corrections<br />

in 2017 as a corrections officer. He<br />

has completed crisis intervention team<br />

training, served as a cadet on the special response<br />

team, serves as a mentor and coach<br />

to new staff, and has represented LoCI at career<br />

days at local high schools. He holds an<br />

associate of arts degree in criminal justice.<br />

In 2020, Miller was one of the first responders<br />

to the scene of a fire that occurred<br />

when an inmate altered an electronic tablet.<br />

He assisted in evacuating the inmates, then<br />

helped other staff in trying to extinguish the<br />

fire. He suffered from smoke inhalation and<br />

had to go to the emergency room.<br />

In 2021, Miller was tasked with developing<br />

a plan to clean the open area of the facility<br />

because birds were coming into the<br />

institution and creating a health hazard. He<br />

recommended that screens be placed over<br />

windows, the open area be filled in, and an<br />

inmate cleaning crew be formed. The plan<br />

has drastically reduced the number of birds<br />

making their way into the institution.<br />

Due to his interpersonal skills, Miller is<br />

adept at deescalating situations and is used<br />

to “tag in” when other officers are having issues<br />

with inmates.<br />

Employee of the Year<br />

Gregory Miller began his career with the<br />

Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections<br />

in 2013 as a corrections officer. He<br />

was promoted to correctional counselorsergeant<br />

in 2021.<br />

Miller has been a hostage negotiator the<br />

past three years and LoCI’s chief negotiator<br />

for one year. He is a member of the crisis intervention<br />

team, the vulnerability committee<br />

and the critical incident management<br />

design committee. He is certified in correctional<br />

behavioral health and instructs behavioral<br />

intervention classes.<br />

Miller has been named corrections officer<br />

of the month twice and employee of the<br />

month once due to the major contraband he<br />

found and the impact his presence makes in<br />

the dormitories.<br />

In 2020 and 2021, Miller assisted with<br />

COVID relief at Ohio State University-<br />

Franklin Medical Center, Trumbull Correctional<br />

Institution, and <strong>Madison</strong> Correctional<br />

Institution. He assisted in COVID screenings<br />

for offenders, transported laboratory<br />

specimens for testing, and performed security<br />

functions for the prisons.<br />

Miller’s diligence inside the prison walls<br />

has resulted in two felony convictions, one<br />

for possession of heroin and the other for a<br />

serious assault against a staff member.<br />

Supervisor of the Year<br />

James Reeves began his career in corrections<br />

in 2011 as a corrections officer. He was<br />

promoted to lieutenant in 2019. He chairs the<br />

rules infraction board, a two-person panel<br />

that determines the guilt or innocence of an<br />

offender who violates institutional rules.<br />

Reeves has been a member of LoCI’s special<br />

response team since 2013 and is the assistant<br />

commander. He is a behavioral<br />

intervention use of force instructor and has<br />

completed critical incident training (CIT).<br />

He serves as a coach to new staff and is a<br />

mentor to another corrections officer. He<br />

has served as an instructor, teaching critical<br />

incident management, health and safety,<br />

and active aggressor classes.<br />

Reeves has been named corrections officer<br />

of the month twice and supervisor of the<br />

month twice. He was recognized once because<br />

an offender was non-compliant. He<br />

used his CIT skills to deescalate the situation<br />

and prevent use of force. As an officer,<br />

he responded to an offender who had committed<br />

suicide. He administered CPR; the offender<br />

eventually passed away. Reeves said<br />

the event was very eye opening as an officer.<br />

Kenny Wilder Award<br />

Vickey Justus, acting deputy warden of<br />

special services, received the Kenny Wilder<br />

Award. The award is named for a former<br />

LoCI employee who passed away in 1996 at<br />

age 36 as the result of a heart attack. Wilder<br />

was revered by staff and inmates alike.<br />

The award recognizes employees who<br />

give of themselves willingly to others<br />

through their work and their community involvement.<br />

The warden selects the winner.<br />

Justus has worked at LoCI for 42 years.<br />

Prior to the position she holds now, she<br />

served as operations compliance manager,<br />

labor relations officer, and correctional warden’s<br />

assistant. She is a member of Mechanicsburg<br />

Christian Fellowship and formerly<br />

served as a 4-H advisor and as a member of<br />

the Mechanicsburg village council.<br />

“I knew Kenny. I have a picture of him in<br />

my office. It is an honor to receive this<br />

award,” Justus said.

Bianca and Goldie seek homes<br />

Humane Society hosting<br />

golf outing on June 20<br />

7The following are among the pets up for adoption at<br />

the Humane Society of <strong>Madison</strong> County.<br />

Bianca<br />

This sweet, beautiful<br />

kitty is around<br />

2 years old with an<br />

estimated birthday<br />

of June 2019.<br />

Bianca was brought<br />

into the shelter with<br />

her siblings after<br />

being taken from a<br />

bad living situation.<br />

She has done nothing<br />

but thrive. She<br />

was adopted out<br />

once and returned<br />

because her owners<br />

were moving and<br />

couldn't take her<br />

with them. She<br />

spent time in a foster<br />

home with kids,<br />

cats, and a dog, and<br />

she loved her canine<br />

Bianca<br />

foster brother so much, she was always hanging out<br />

with him.<br />

Bianca loves when the shelter staff and volunteers<br />

stop by her kennel to give her love. You’ll most likely<br />

find her lounging in a cozy bed when she’s not soaking<br />

up love from her humans. In addition to dogs, Bianca<br />

loves other kitties and would thrive best in a home with<br />

other cats. They can help her adjust and be confident.<br />

Bianca has grown by leaps and bounds since first arriving<br />

at the shelter, learning to trust new people. She<br />

is friendly and outgoing and would do just fine in a<br />

home with children who know to use gentle hands. This<br />

sweet baby has already been through so much in her<br />

short life. Please consider making her a forever family<br />

member.<br />

The adoption fee is $80 for kittens up to 6 months old<br />

and $60 for cats 7 months and older. It includes: a<br />

FeLV/FIV test, spay or neuter, set of shots, deworming,<br />

and a one-year rabies shot (if old enough). Fees can be<br />

paid by cash or credit card.<br />

Goldie<br />

Why, hello there! My name is Goldie. I am a 3.5-yearold<br />

lab mix who is as silly as they come. I came to the<br />

shelter through no fault of my own; my previous owners<br />

could no longer take care of me. I am a big girl at 91<br />

pounds. I love to smile and, when I wag my tail, it moves<br />

my entire body and wiggles my butt. I love to go on long<br />

walks and sniff everything along the way.<br />

I have been at <strong>Madison</strong> Correctional Institution’s<br />

“prison training program” where I have been getting lessons<br />

on tricks, leash walking, and agility course training.<br />

The people there said I was the star of doggy classes<br />

and was very good at focusing and learning new things.<br />

I love getting praise and attention, so I’ll do whatever I<br />

can to make you happy.<br />

I have also been told that I really should go to a home<br />

with no other doggos. Because I spent my first years<br />

alone and without other dogs around, I don’t really<br />

know how to react when dogs want to play. I would love<br />

to go on walks and hikes with other dogs, though. That<br />

way I know what it’s like to be in a real pack.<br />

I need to go to a home with a family who can handle<br />

my size. I could easily knock a smaller toddler to the<br />

ground by accident. When going to the cat room at the<br />

shelter, I did fine.<br />

I was just really<br />

curious about all<br />

of the cats and<br />

wiggled right up<br />

to them to say<br />

“hi.” Since I am so<br />

outgoing around<br />

kitties, if I go to a<br />

home with feline<br />

friends, it should<br />

probably be with<br />

cats who have previous<br />

experience<br />

with big, goofy,<br />

weird goldens. I<br />

would really love a<br />

big yard with a<br />

Goldie<br />

fence so that I can<br />

run around before<br />

I go inside and become<br />

a couch surfer with you. Come meet me and you'll<br />

see how much of a lovebug I am.<br />

Adoption fees for dogs vary: shelter dogs are $150,<br />

prison dogs are $200, puppies are $250, and popular<br />

pure-breeds are $400. The price includes: a Home Again<br />

microchip, set of shots, deworming, heartworm testing<br />

(if old enough), spay or neuter, and a one-year rabies<br />

shot (if old enough). All dogs adopted must leave with a<br />

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

paid by cash or credit card.<br />
