Junior deputies learn about law enforcement

By Dedra Cordle

Staff Writer

Clara Hall thinks of herself as a good person but freely admits

there could be room for growth.

“I want to learn how to be an even better person,” stated the 11-

year-old from West Jefferson.

As a part of a self-devised summer enrichment challenge, Hall

came up with a variety of things she could do to achieve her personal

improvement goals. Near the top of the list was learning by

example from those she considers to be real-life heroes.

For as long as she can remember, Hall has admired officers of

the law, believing them to be beacons of good for those in need.

“They want to protect people and help the community,” she said.

Desiring to acquire those traits, Hall signed up for the Junior

Deputy Academy program hosted by the DARE division of the

Madison County Sheriff’s Office. The academy took place June 6-

10.

Established in the mid-2000s, the academy is open to elementary

and middle school-aged children who either show an aptitude for

the profession or simply are curious about a hands-on and behindthe-scenes

look at the career.

Due to funding issues, the program has been held sporadically

over the years but has maintained a constant presence in the hearts

and minds of the community.

“There is not a week that goes by where I am not asked about

this program,” said Dep. Roberta Roberts, the academy’s coordinator.

“It is one of the most popular programs we have, but unfortunately

we have just not been able to host it on a regular basis.”

The last time the academy was held was in 2017, but it did receive

another funding green light in 2020.

“We were so excited to be able to say to

the community that the academy was back,”

said Roberts, a 21-year veteran of the department.

“We had all of our activities

After a five-year hiatus, the Madison County Sheriff’s Office hosted its popular Junior Deputy Academy June 6-10. More than two dozen children participated.

(Shown in the center) Deputy Roberta Roberts coordinated the program, and Deputy Laura Hamilton served as the co-instructor. They are surrounded by

freshly graduated junior deputies and first responders who helped with the academy.

her friends at other area law enforcement

departments were adamant the academy

take place this summer.

With the five-year gap, Roberts was worried

there would be little interest from the

youth in the community.

“I thought it would be out of sight, out of

mind,” she said.

That was not the case. More than two

dozen children applied and showed up for

the day camp that was headquartered at St.

Patrick School in London.

During the course of the five-day academy,

cadet campers got a look at what it’s

like to be a criminal. For instance, with the

help of virtual reality goggles, they learned

what it is like to drive a car while impaired.

They also created mock crime scenes where

they were apprehended, handcuffed and fingerprinted.

Making the various experiments and experiences

possible were the Sheriff’s Office,

Madison County Emergency Management

Agency, Ohio Bureau of Identification and

Investigation, and partner agencies in London

and West Jefferson. The children also

watched presentations on gun safety, Internet

safety, first aid, and K-9 teams. The latter

proved to be quite popular.

On June 8, Dep. Darrah Metz with the

Franklin County Sheriff’s Office visited the

academy with therapy dog, Mattis. The children

gave Mattis lots of affection while

learning about the benefits of the program.

On June 10, London Police Officer Michael

Combs visited the academy with K-9 officer

Ygor. The children weren’t able to give him

as much affection as they wanted. Ygor was

still “on the job” and fixated on his human

partner and favorite toy. But the duo’s duties

and demonstrations of teamwork

sparked interest in quite a few cadets.

“I’ve decided I want to be a K-9 officer,”

said Roman Smith, 13. “I’ve always wanted

to be a cop, I love dogs, and I just want to be

a part of that unit when I grow up.”

Gabriella Markley, 9, shared a similar

sentiment, but said she was drawn to the

therapy dog side of the police canine division.

“They’re a bit calmer,” she said.

to become officers of the law—Sawyer

honors at the graduation ceremony on June 10, wants to be a

teacher—they all expressed gratitude for revival of the Junior

Deputy Academy.

“It has been a lot of fun, and I have learned so much,” said Hall,

who learned CPR during the academy. “I think it definitely made

me a better person, and I can take all of the things I learned here

and do more things to help my community.”

Dep. Roberts also is thankful for the program’s return and says

the department plans to host the academy again next summer and

possibly create an advanced course for youths who have already

gone through the program.

“This program means so much to me, to all of these departments,

and to the community,” Roberts said. “Not only are we providing

our children with a positive experience with law enforcement officials,

but we are helping them to become better people through all

of the teamwork demonstrations we do.

“While we do not expect everyone that comes through this academy

to become police officers, we want them to continue to apply

these lessons of kindness, treating others with respect, and showing

a willingness to help the community in whatever job they choose to

do and throughout the rest of their lives.”

Renewal levy on the horizon; Harper honored

By Linda Dillman

Staff Writer

Seven years can pass by quickly. For a Jefferson Local School District

levy committee, it’s time to start of the process of seeking voter

approval for renewal of an emergency levy first passed nearly 40

years ago.

On June 13, school board members passed a resolution of necessity,

the first step toward putting the seven-year substitute levy on

the Nov. 8 ballot.

“I want to emphasize that this levy is asking for no new taxes,”

said Superintendent William Mullett. “The only difference with a

substitute levy is it allows the district to collect taxes on new

growth.

“And folks will still get the benefit of the 12.5 percent exemption

process which does not involve school financial resources. The campaign

is funded privately.

During regular action at the June 13 meeting, the board accepted

the resignation of David Harper, who is stepping down after

22 years as a school board member.

“It is with great pleasure and sadness that I wish farewell to

long-time board member Dave Harper,” Mullett said. “He’s going

to be greatly missed. You can’t really replace people like Dave. He’s

an institution.”

In one of his last comments as a board member, Harper applauded

the work of Treasurer Mark Ingles and his staff in turning

the district’s financial tide out of deficit spending and laying the

groundwork for long-delayed employee raises.

“We are on pace to finish with a surplus this year for the first

time in many years,” Ingles responded.

The board accepted nearly a dozen donations, including $27,821

from the Madison County Prosecutor’s Office for installation of

nightlock door security stoppers for all facilities in the district.

On June 4, the London Visual

Arts Guild handed out

awards to participants in the

Through a partnership with the Ohio

Governor’s Imagination Library, Dolly Parton’s

Imagination Library, and the Ohio Department

of Natural Resources (ODNR),

First Lady Fran DeWine opened a new Storybook

Trail in Deer Creek State Park on

June 13. After a ribbon-cutting ceremony,

children and families walked with DeWine

on the new trail.

“Experiencing a Storybook Trail gives

children and their families the opportunity

to take an adventure inside a great book

while experiencing an outside adventure at

one of our great state parks,” DeWine said.

“I hope this new trail gives Ohio families

and visitors new memories that will last a

lifetime.”

Located outside of Mount Sterling, Deer

Creek State Park is set in farm country. The

park’s resort, marina, large campground,

and 18-hole golf course facilities blend with

outdoor activities such as boating, fishing,

camping and hiking.

The story featured on the park’s new Storybook

Trail is “Drop” by Emily Kate Moon.

On the child-height panels lining the trail,

children can follow the story of the cutest

drop of water as she takes readers on an adventure

through the water cycle.

“Storybook Trails offer families another

place to enjoy quality time with their

friends and family, while encouraging the

little ones to read and learn about nature,”

said ODNR Director Mary Mertz. “We are

excited to provide more opportunities to link

literacy with healthy living through our Storybook

Trails. There really is no better place

than an Ohio state park to explore, learn

and really appreciate everything the great

outdoors has to offer.”

DeWine encourages all Ohioans to explore

the Storybook Trails at state parks and

enroll children under the age of 5 years old

in the Ohio Governor’s Imagination Library.

Currently, 324,887 Ohio children are en-

rolled in the Ohio Governor’s Imagination

Library which provides one free book every

month to children enrolled in the program

from birth to age 5. Any Ohio child in this

age group is eligible to receive the books

which are paid for by the state and county

partners. If a parent or grandparent enrolls

a child at birth, that child could receive all

60 books in the program. To learn more

and how to participate, visit

Trails this summer and fall. To find a story

Help available to stay cool in summer

The Ohio Department of Development

and Bridges Community Action Partnership

will help income-eligible Ohioans stay cool

during the hot summer months. The Home

Energy Assistance Summer Crisis Program

provides eligible Ohioans assistance paying

an electric bill or assistance paying for central

air conditioning repairs. The program

runs from July 1, 2022, until Sept. 30, 2022.

To apply for the program, clients are required

to schedule an appointment with

Bridges Community Action Partnership.

Appointments can be scheduled by calling

(740) 852-3511.

Clients need to bring copies of the following

documents to their appointment:

• copies of their most recent energy bills;

• a list of all household members and

proof of income for the last 30 days or 12

months for each member;

• proof of U.S. citizenship or legal residency

for all household members;

• proof of disability (if applicable);

• physician documentation that cooling

assistance is needed for a household member’s

health (if there isn’t a household member

over the age of 60).

“The Home Energy Assistance Program

(HEAP) continues to be a cornerstone program

of Bridges Community Action Partnership”

stated Andrew Binegar, executive

director. “There continues to be customers

who, because of limited financial resources,

have difficulty maintaining their utility

services. The primary goal of HEAP is to

generate positive financial benefits by addressing

the payment trouble of low-income

customers based on lack of affordability.”

The Summer Crisis Program assists lowincome

households with an older household

member (60 years or older), that can provide

physician documentation that cooling assistance

is needed for a household member's

health, have a disconnect notice, have been

shut off, are trying to establish new service

on their electric bill, or require air conditioning.

Conditions can include such things

as lung disease, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary

Disease, or asthma.

Also, Ohioans enrolled in the Percentage

of Income Payment Plan Plus Program

(PIPP) who meet the above criteria may be

eligible for assistance towards their default

PIPP payment, first PIPP payment, central

air conditioning repairs, or may receive an

air conditioning unit and/or fan.

For more information about the Summer

Crisis Program and what is needed to apply,

at (740) 852-3511. To be connected to a

London Strawberry Festival

Cobras will roar into town Saturday morning

The Ohio Cobra Club once

again will hold their annual

Cobra Car Show during the

London Strawberry Festival.

More than 180 cars are

signed up to participate in

the event slated for June 25.

Show participants will

make a grand entrance with

a Cobra parade. The Madison

County Sheriff’s Office will

escort the group for 10 miles from the Speedway

Truck Stop near the southwest corner

of I-70’s Exit 79 to the show grounds on

North Main Street in front of the county

courthouse. The cars will arrive shortly after

9 a.m. and stay until approximately 3 p.m.

The show features 1960s-era Shelby

Cobra Roadster, Daytona Coupe, and Ford

GT40 replicas and originals. Several car-related

vendors will be on site in what the club

calls Gasoline Alley.

Besides the chance to get up-close looks at

beautiful, powerful cars, visitors have the opportunity

to go for a ride in one. Charity rides

are $10 each with all proceeds

going to the Cystic Fibrosis

Foundation (CFF). Rides

start at 10 a.m. Ride tickets

will be sold until 2 p.m.

Since its founding in 2001,

the club has donated $1.83

million to CFF which raises

awareness and funding for

research to fight cystic fibrosis,

an uncurable disease

that makes it difficult to breathe.

The club raises money for the cause

through the charity rides, t-shirt sales, and

a car raffle. Last year, the raffle brought in

$130,000.

This year’s raffle car is a Backdraft Racing

RT4 Cobra replica. Tickets are $20 and

can be purchased at the London show or at

www.londoncobrashow.com. The drawing

will be held at 9 p.m. June 25 during the

club’s evening activities in Dublin. Entrants

do not need to be present to win.

London Strawberry Festival

Proud to represent London

My name is Briana Peterman, and I am

your 2021 London Strawberry Queen. From

the time I could barely walk on the stage by

myself to now, this is the moment I have

dreamed of but dreaded at the same time.

I spent a long time trying to find a quote

that was so close to me and meant a lot but

the only thing I could think of was, “Don’t

suck.” While it is funny, it’s something that

my biggest role model has always said to me

before I do anything. It translates to: Do

your best at anything and everything you

do, and do it with no regret. Give it your all!”

Before I went on stage Thursday night of

last year’s Strawberry Festival, I didn’t realize

how much that meant until that moment

when it really mattered. As the crown

was placed on my head, my long-term goal

became a reality. I won the baby contest at

age 2, then went on to Miss Shortcake. Little

Miss, Young Miss and Junior Miss followed.

Each time I received a crown, I knew that

one day I wanted to be Miss Strawberry.

Throughout all these years, I have gotten

to travel, and it has been my pleasure to

represent the city of London. I remember in

my younger years being in awe of the many

queens I met from other towns. As the London

Strawberry queen, I knew I needed to

be a role model to the many children I came

across. Often I would hear the little ones ask

their moms if I was “a real princess,” I always

made sure to stop and talk to those

kids because, in my mind, a “real princess”

doesn’t just wear a crown, she is kind and

caring, as well.

As many of you may know, but for the ones

that may not, I put together a community

service project during my reign. I collected

items from shampoo and conditioner to

stuffed animals and blankets to put together

bags for local foster kids. With the items and

Briana Peterman, 2021 queen

cash donated, we were able to put together 54

bags, as well as multiple bags for foster families.

This is one of the things I am most passionate

about, and I am so glad I got the

opportunity to give back to my community

and bring our community closer together.

I would like to thank the London community

for giving me this wonderful opportunity

to represent you. For one of the last

times, I am and forever will be your 2021

London Strawberry Festival queen and the

first contestant to ever hold all crowns from

baby to queen. I hope to see you all at the

festival!

Free airplane rides at airport

Look for Lions Club at festival

The London Lions Club will be at the London Strawberry Festival

this year, handing out balloons and children’s travel toy kits.

The club will have a collection box on site for used eyeglasses; the

glasses will be passed along to individuals who are less fortunate.

Additionally, the club is selling raffle tickets. Winners will share a

$1,500 prize amount.

Youths ages 8 to 17 have an opportunity

to get a bird’s eye view of London and the

surrounding area at the Young Eagles Rally

set for the morning of June 25 at Madison

County Airport.

Chapter 9 of the Experimental Aircraft

Association (EAA) is offering free airplane

rides. Pre-registration is available at

https://chapters.eaa.org/eaa9/young-eagles.

Time slots are available between 9 a.m. and

noon. Walk-ups are welcome, as well. A parent

must be on hand to sign off on paperwork.

Rides typically last 15 to 20 minutes.

Founded in 1992, the purpose of the

Young Eagles program is to give youths the

chance to fly in a general aviation airplane,

educate them about careers in aviation, and

generally inspire them when it comes to the

world of aviation.

To date, EAA 9 has provided rides to

8,755 children locally. Nationwide, EAA has

flown more than 2 million youths. The allvolunteer

group is made up of professional

and private pilots.

EAA 9 usually holds several Young Eagles

rallies each year, including events at

the Madison County Airport, Bolton Field in

Columbus, and Ohio State University’s Don

Scott Field in Columbus. The group will

hold a second event at the Madison County

Airport on Aug. 27.

Visit https://chapters.eaa.org/eaa9 to

learn more about EAA 9 and the Young Eagles

program.

Madison County Airport is located at

1281 U.S. Route 40, London.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING #2

PLEASE ATTEND THE JUNE 30TH PUBLIC MEETING TO

LEARN ABOUT THE SUMMERFORD SEWER PROJECT

Posting Date: June 12th

Madison County will be applying to the Ohio Development Services

Agency (ODAS) for Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding

under the Residential Public Infrastructure Grant (RPIG) Program.

Community Development Block Grants are federally-funded grants administered

by the state. Madison County is eligible for up to $750,000

in RPIG funding, providing the county meets applicable requirements.

On February 8, 2022 Madison County conducted its first public hearing

to inform citizens about Community Development Block Grants, how

they may be used, what activities are eligible, and other important

program requirements.

Based on both citizen input and local officials’ assessment of the needs

of the county, Madison County is proposing to undertake the following

CDBG activity under the RPIG Program.

Summerford Sanitary Sewer Project

A second public hearing will be held June 30th, 2022 at 7:00 p.m.

at the Somerford Township Hall, 91 State Route 56 NW, Somerford,

Ohio to give citizens an adequate opportunity to review and comment

on Madison County’s proposed RPIG Program applications, including

the proposed activity summarized above, before Madison County

submits the application to the Ohio Department of Development.

Citizens are encouraged to attend this meeting on June 30th, 2022 at

7:00 p.m. to express their views and comment on Madison County’s

proposed RPIG application.

Morse Code communications. Madison County club members will

demonstrate the “magic” of ham radio by contacting hams across

the country while using wire antennas, low power radios and emergency

power.

The public is invited to come and see modern amateur radio technology

in action and learn about the hobby. Club members will be

available to answer questions, provide literature and help visitors

get on the air. The best visiting times are 2-6 p.m. June 25 and 10

a.m.-2 p.m. June 26.

Field Day is sponsored by the ARRL, the national association for

amateur radio, and has been an annual event since 1933. This

year’s operations are expected to involve more than 40,000 ham

radio operators from across North America.

Often using only emergency power supplies, ham operators will

construct and operate emergency stations in parks, shopping malls,

schools and backyards around the country. Their slogan, “When all

else fails, ham radio works,” is demonstrated by hams who can send

messages in many forms without the use of phone systems, internet

or any other infrastructure that can be compromised in a crisis. The

event combines public service, emergency preparedness, community

outreach and technical skills.

Modern amateur radio is a fast-growing hobby. There are nearly

28,000 licensed amateurs in Ohio, more than 750,000 in the United

States and more than 2.5 million worldwide. Through ARRL’s Amateur

Radio Emergency Services program, volunteers provide emergency

communication for thousands of state and local emergency

response agencies and non-emergency communication to a wide variety

of community and civic organizations, all without cost to the

public.
