Learning opportunities grow at St. Pat School<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

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

Learning opportunities are growing at St. Patrick School in London<br />

as parent volunteer Kathleen Ries spearheads the creation of<br />

a fruit, vegetable and pollinator garden on the school grounds.<br />

The plan is to develop the garden in phases, starting this fall<br />

with installation of a berry patch and an outdoor learning center.<br />

Next spring, work will begin on a large in-ground bed from which<br />

most of the garden’s produce will be harvested.<br />

A pollinator garden with plantings that attract birds and bees is<br />

part of the vision, as is a walking path that lets students and visitors<br />

travel through the garden space. Rain barrels, drip irrigation,<br />

compost areas, and an outdoor sink are part of the plan, too.<br />

So, how did the idea for all of this come about? It was kind of a<br />

random thing, said Ries, who has three children who attend St.<br />

Patrick School. She and her mother also attended school there.<br />

“I was thinking about how I can better use my gifts and talents<br />

to help the school,” she said. “Gardening is a hobby for me and an<br />

outlet. It’s something I’ve enjoyed doing around our house.”<br />

She’s gotten her children and some of the neighborhood kids involved<br />

in tending her home garden, and that got her to thinking<br />

that if they enjoyed it, maybe other kids would, too. She reached<br />

out to Principal Deborah Adamczak, and the seed grew from there.<br />

St. Patrick School is in the process of attaining a five-year accreditation<br />

with the Ohio Catholic School Accrediting Association.<br />

Within that framework, the catholicity goal is “caring for God’s creation.”<br />

Ries sees a school garden as a perfect fit as students plant,<br />

tend the garden, and share the food they grow.<br />

The new garden will be called St. Fiacre’s Clover Grove, named<br />

for the patron saint of vegetable gardens. It will be located between<br />

the school’s Early Learning Center and<br />

garage, alongside the farm field St. Patrick<br />

owns adjacent to the school grounds.<br />

While summers are thought of as prime<br />

time for gardens—as well as the time when<br />

school is not in session—Ries has a plan to<br />

make the garden relevant all year long.<br />

“We will choose plant varieties that produce<br />

in August, September and October,<br />

like berries. We also will plant cold weather<br />

St. Patrick School’s new garden committee held a design contest among students this past school year. The<br />

winning design (shown here), created by fifth-grader Natasha Grube, will appear on the cover of thank-you cards<br />

given to individuals, groups, and companies that make donations to the school’s new student learning garden.<br />

crops like lettuces in the fall, and we will put down a cover crop to<br />

prepare the beds for next spring,” she said.<br />

A full-on summer planting is planned, too, with sunflowers, corn,<br />

pumpkins, tomatoes, peppers and more. To keep students involved,<br />

Ries plans to start a children’s garden club that meets over the summer.<br />

The opportunities for learning are abundant, she said.<br />

“The students will be able to weigh, measure and graph their<br />

harvests. We’ll have them collect waste from their school lunches<br />

for compost. They’ll record the weight daily and tally the amount<br />

Kathleen Ries and members of her garden committee salvaged these large wooden spindles from the <strong>Madison</strong><br />

County Fairgrounds following the demolition of the grandstand at the fairgrounds. The committee will use them<br />

as tables for an outdoor learning space at a new student learning garden at St. Patrick School.<br />

of food waste they were able to divert from<br />

the landfill each year,” she said.<br />

Students can explore their creative sides,<br />

too, drawing and coloring pictures of<br />

seedlings and produce and writing poetry<br />

about what they observe.<br />

Ries hopes to bring outside community<br />

members to the garden to provide enrichment<br />

sessions. Master Gardeners could<br />

share their expertise. The library could hold<br />

reading sessions in the garden. A representative<br />

from the health department could<br />

talk about healthy food choices.<br />

“It’s such a great learning opportunity.<br />

There’s also a huge mental health aspect.<br />

It’s about getting your hands dirty, getting<br />

outside away from electronics—just being<br />

present where you are,” she said.<br />

Giving back is factored into the garden’s<br />

potential, as well. St. Patrick church hosts<br />

community dinners. Ries said the students<br />

could donate extra produce for those dinners.<br />

Another goal is to host a garden picnic<br />

for the community.<br />

Ries is thankful for the help she has received<br />

in getting the project started. Her<br />

neighbors, Les Barnhart and Lynda Heyl,<br />

have provided tips and tricks and space in<br />

their garden for experimenting. Barnhart, a<br />

Master Gardener, assisted with testing the<br />

New chamber director comes aboard<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

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

Jon McKanna, the new executive director<br />

of the <strong>Madison</strong> County Chamber of Commerce,<br />

comes to the position with a strong<br />

knowledge of the <strong>Madison</strong> County area.<br />

For 18 years, he has operated a consulting<br />

business, providing leadership and drug-free<br />

workplace training for companies of all sizes,<br />

primarily in Ohio, including several businesses<br />

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

“I’ve always been impressed with the area<br />

and the friendliness of everybody I worked<br />

with,” McKanna said.<br />

Among those he has worked with is David<br />

Kell, the former executive director of the<br />

Chamber of Commerce. Kell now serves as<br />

the economic and planning director for the<br />

county, a new position approved by the county<br />

commissioners.<br />

“David helped me to become familiar with<br />

the surroundings,” said McKanna who,<br />

through his consulting firm, conducted several<br />

Lunch & Learn and safety council talks<br />

for the Chamber.<br />

McKanna also has experience working with several Plain City<br />

businesses and is a member of the Plain City Business Association’s<br />

executive committee. His connections with the city of London are<br />

strong, too. He has led leadership training with the city’s administrative<br />

staff and been in talks with the city and county regarding<br />

workforce development training.<br />

McKanna has direct experience with chambers of commerce,<br />

having served as president of the Ottawa Area Chamber of Commerce<br />

and performing chamber leadership training.<br />

“I have an idea of what chambers do to help companies become<br />

the best versions of themselves. I know what tools, benefits, and<br />

services I could provide,” he said.<br />

Prior to running his consulting firm, McKanna spent 20 years<br />

Any resident 18 years of age or older who resides in <strong>Madison</strong><br />

County can seek election to the Soil and Water Conservation District<br />

(SWCD) board of supervisors. Names can be placed on the ballot<br />

in two ways.<br />

Candidates can be nominated by the SWCD nominating committee.<br />

This committee works throughout the year looking for candidates<br />

who are interested in the conservation and protection of<br />

natural resources in the county.<br />

Alternatively, interested individuals can contact SWCD by calling<br />

(740) 852-4003 to arrange to pick up a nomination petition form.<br />

Potential candidates need to secure at least 10 signatures from residents<br />

and/or landowners from the county and submit the petition<br />

to the district by the close of business on <strong>July</strong> 18.<br />

Jon McKanna<br />

as director of outpatient counseling centers<br />

for mental health and substance abuse. He<br />

hopes to put this experience to work at the<br />

Chamber, tapping into and collaborating with<br />

non-profit resources in the county.<br />

Besides his familiarity with <strong>Madison</strong><br />

County, McKanna said he chose to apply for<br />

the Chamber position because the area reminds<br />

him of home. He grew up on a hog farm<br />

in Putnam County in northwest Ohio.<br />

“It felt like a good fit,” he said.<br />

He also was attracted to the opportunity<br />

to focus his energy on a specific area.<br />

“I thought it was time to gear down some<br />

of the travel I have to do for the consulting<br />

business. The Chamber position allows me to<br />

stay focused on one key area,” he said.<br />

McKanna’s first day on the job at the<br />

Chamber was May 2. His first order of business<br />

was to jump into planning and organizing<br />

the Chamber’s annual golf outing. He also<br />

has been getting to know the organization’s<br />

members and the community as a whole.<br />

As for goals, McKanna said the board<br />

and staff are revisiting the Chamber’s vision<br />

and mission.<br />

“Now that COVID has calmed down, we want to look at what<br />

areas we can improve,” he said, listing membership recruitment and<br />

retention and new ways to bring more benefits to members.<br />

He also is looking out for the next generation of workers.<br />

“I want to really evaluate the career path for young people to try<br />

to bring more resources to help them get focused on their talent and<br />

strengths and get them headed in the right direction as soon as possible,”<br />

he said.<br />

McKanna lives with wife, Linda, in Delaware. Outside of work,<br />

he is now in his 45th year serving as a referee for high school football.<br />

up against applicants from throughout North America. We’ll know<br />

if we got it on Aug. 2,” Ries said.<br />

The committee welcomes additional cash and in-kind donations.<br />

The biggest needs right now are student garden supplies, student<br />

learning supplies, compost and rainwater collection equipment, and<br />

garden bed supplies.<br />

Volunteers are welcome, too. This fall, the need will center<br />

around installation. The bigger need for volunteers will come next<br />

summer to handle weeding, monitoring for pests, and the like.<br />

Anyone who would like more information about making a donation<br />

or volunteering can contact Kathleen Ries at (614) 203-6530 or<br />

kgruzs@gmail.com.<br />

St. Patrick School serves early learning students and students<br />

in kindergarten through eighth grade.<br />

SWCD election period is Aug. 22 through Sept. 20<br />

Candidates meeting the eligibility requirements and deadline<br />

will be listed on the ballot for the special election. The election period<br />

is Aug. 22-Sept. 20. The SWCD banquet is Sept. 15 with voting<br />

available from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the Procter Center, 11235 State<br />

Fair rides have youths in mind<br />

Wildflower Bike Rides<br />

The <strong>Madison</strong> Soil & Water Conservation District is leading bicycle<br />

rides to view wildflowers along the Ohio to Erie Trail. At pit<br />

stops along the trail, riders will learn about local flora and fauna,<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

history, and conservation practices.<br />

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

Each ride starts at 8 a.m. at the Prairie Grass Trailhead, 262 W.<br />

High St., London, and extends southwest to the <strong>Madison</strong>-Clark<br />

county border. After the official ride ends, riders are welcome to<br />

head onto South Charleston or return back to London.<br />

<strong>July</strong> 16—Purple coneflower, milkweed and royal catchfly will be<br />

in bloom. This is the annual Prairie Appreciation Bike Ride, started<br />

in 2005 by the Jack McDowell, a botanist and prairie enthusiast.<br />

McDowell was one of the early “discoverers” of the remnant prairies<br />

of <strong>Madison</strong> and Clark counties and started the efforts to manage<br />

these prairie treasures in the midst of threats from invasive woody<br />

plant and agricultural weed species. McDowell passed away in<br />

2012, but his dream to inspire others to preserve the Ohio prairie<br />

is not forgotten.<br />

Aug. 20—As summer transitions into autumn, the various sunflowers,<br />

ironweed, goldenrod and asters come into bloom.<br />

Bring your helmet, water and an inquisitive mind. Contact Broc<br />

Sehen at broc.sehen@oh.nacdnet.net or (740) 852-4003 for details.<br />

All of this year’s rides at the fair will be geared toward<br />

children 12 and younger. There will be no massive<br />

rides, such as the Zipper and the Ferris wheel.<br />

The ride company the fair used last year went out of<br />

business. Finding a replacement turned out to be a very<br />

difficult task. Many ride companies have closed up shop,<br />

leaving few options.<br />

“We had trouble finding other ride companies available<br />

during our dates. At first, we were almost resigned<br />

to having no rides at all,” said Paul Gross, <strong>Madison</strong><br />

County Senior Fair Board president.<br />

Gross was thankful to sign an agreement with EGO<br />

Amusements out of St. Mary’s, Ohio.<br />

“I felt massive relief that we did find a ride company.<br />

Admittedly, they are geared toward the younger kids.<br />

The rides are more like what you would see at the<br />

Strawberry Festival or the Ox Roast,” he said.<br />

In business for two years, EGO Amusements is<br />

bringing six mechanical rides and six inflatables. The<br />

rides include a swing ride, truck ride, three types of spin<br />

rides, and a fun house.<br />

Thanks to sponsorship from Coughlin Automotive,<br />

rides are free with admission from 1 to 4 p.m. each<br />

weekday of the fair (<strong>July</strong> 11-15). The rides will close<br />

from 4 to 5 p.m. each weekday before reopening and operating<br />

from 5 until closing time. Weekend hours for the<br />

rides are 2:30 p.m. to close. The weekend dates include<br />

<strong>July</strong> 9-10 and <strong>July</strong> 16.<br />

Ride wristbands for the evenings and weekends are<br />

$12 and can be purchased at the Garfield Avenue and<br />

EGO Amusements out of St. Mary’s, Ohio, is providing<br />

rides and inflatables at this year’s fair. The rides<br />

are geared toward younger children.<br />

Elm Street entrances to the fairgrounds, as well as at<br />

the fair office on the fairgrounds.<br />

In addition to the rides, the midway will include a<br />

full set of games as in years past.<br />

“Every spot on the midway will be filled,” Gross said.<br />

Additionally, a nine-hole putt-putt golf course will be<br />

located in the grassy area in front of the small animal<br />

barn. The cost to play is $3 per game.<br />

Quarter Midget Racing<br />

The Central Ohio Quarter Midget Racing Association’s race season<br />

is in full swing. The public is invited to come out and cheer on<br />

the racers who range in age from 5 to 16 years old. The track is located<br />

at 205 Elm St., London, at the <strong>Madison</strong> County Fairgrounds.<br />

Admission is free.<br />

Upcoming race days are: <strong>July</strong> 10 at 10 a.m., Aug. 27 at 5 p.m.,<br />

Aug. 28 at 12 p.m., Oct. 1 at 12 p.m., and Oct. 2 at 12 p.m.<br />

The association is holding an arrive-and-drive on Aug. 27 from<br />

10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for any child interested in sitting in one of the<br />

quarter midget cars and driving it around the track for a few laps.<br />

In the late 1950s, in a small and sleepy town in upstate New<br />

York, a mastermind pulled off one of the biggest heists of all time.<br />

The execution of the Great Cookie Caper Robbery matched anything<br />

Jesse James, John Dillinger, Butch Cassidy, or Bonnie and<br />

Clyde ever pulled off. Now, 50-plus years later, much speculation<br />

still surrounds the case. Could the culprit really have been only a<br />

little boy? Just who was the original Cookie Monster?<br />

I know who perpetrated the crime, and it’s time to finally fess<br />

up and close the case.<br />

The robbery took place when Mom went to the corner store, leaving<br />

me alone for a few precious moments. That’s all I needed. I had<br />

staked out the kitchen and knew the cookie jar on the top shelf of<br />

the cupboard was stocked with freshly baked chocolate chip cookies.<br />

I slid a chair over, climbed onto the counter, stretched up, and the<br />

cookies were mine. No muss, no fuss, no blood, just crumbs. I<br />

headed back to my room, chomping away.<br />

I heard the door and knew Mom was back. Before long, there<br />

came a knock on the door. “David, have you been in the cookies?<br />

They’re all gone.”<br />

Time to act cute and innocent. “Cookies, what cookies? No, Mom,<br />

I didn’t even know we had any.”<br />

To which she replied, “Can you explain the trail of cookie crumbs<br />

on the counter and all along the floor leading to your door?”<br />

I came back with denial again: “Mom, I didn’t do it. That’s just<br />

circumstantial evidence (a term I’d heard when she was watching<br />

Perry Mason).”<br />

Mom: “Wash your face. You’ve got chocolate on your growing<br />

nose.”<br />

Me: “Mom, I didn’t do it!”<br />

Mom had a smirk on her face as she dropped the subject and<br />

walked away. As I look back, it was sadly funny—me actually thinking<br />

I’d been able to fool Mom.<br />

Deep down, I knew she knew, and that’s hounded me my entire<br />

life. So, all these years later, I’m ready to confess: “Mom, if you can<br />

hear me up there, I did it. You were right, just as always. Forgive<br />

me for I knew not what I did. I’m ready to repent and accept full responsibility<br />

for my actions.”<br />

That story was based on a true event. During my lifetime, I’ve<br />

been guilty of not accepting responsibility for my actions. But to my<br />

credit, the trend has steadily decreased with every passing year.<br />

When things go wrong, as they do and always will through no fault<br />

of my own, I still get ticked and resist taking responsibility and<br />

blame. But I’ve learned to be more open-minded to the possibility<br />

that maybe it was me who messed up and just maybe I should accept<br />

the blame and responsibility<br />

for the conscious decisions<br />

I make—a novel concept<br />

in the trying times we live in.<br />

I’ve made many good decisions<br />

in my lifetime, often by<br />

planning, sometimes by<br />

learning from past failures,<br />

many times just by lucking<br />

out. I’ve also made many bad<br />

decisions and found myself<br />

regrouping. Those have left<br />

me questioning why I hadn’t<br />

put more effort into the decision-making<br />

process. I’ve finally<br />

learned that when I’ve dealt myself a failure, I<br />

need to suck it up, make no excuses, accept the consequences,<br />

take responsibility, try to rectify, and learn<br />

from the experience.<br />

Unfortunately, we’re seeing just the opposite happening<br />

in today’s society. Even more troubling is it’s too<br />

often condoned by those who should be questioning this<br />

disturbing trend. Accepting responsibility where due for<br />

one’s actions, or lack of actions, has become a lost virtue.<br />

The name of the game now seems to be to pass the buck,<br />

it’s never your fault.<br />

It’s one thing to look for excuses and pass blame<br />

when you’re a kid; it’s usually accepted as part of the<br />

learning process. Teenagers, too, are still learning and<br />

notorious for not accepting blame. It’s another thing<br />

when you enter adulthood.<br />

One only need look at the leadership of this country<br />

at most every level to see who’s setting the example for<br />

us. When was the last time you saw a politician accept<br />

the responsibility for anything that wasn’t seen as positive<br />

to their political career? You’ll see them take credit<br />

without batting an eyelash for anything that goes right,<br />

even if they had nothing to do with it, but anything negative?<br />

Let the blame game begin. If only they’d put an<br />

equal amount of effort into dealing with the country’s.<br />

Consider the hotly debated college loan forgiveness<br />

efforts that keep making the news. A conscious decision,<br />

perhaps a poor one, is made by a college student to secure<br />

a federal loan for college costs along with signing<br />

a commitment that promises to repay the loan. No,<br />

many are defaulting on their agreement and want their<br />

remaining balances forgiven by the government. They<br />

don’t feel they should have to accept the responsibility<br />

of their decision.<br />

But wait a minute, the government is funded by taxpayers.<br />

That means when students default or their<br />

loans are forgiven, the taxpayer must pick up the tab?<br />

So, someone who’s living check to check and perhaps<br />

couldn’t afford to go to college but pays taxes must bail<br />

out the college student? And maybe the family of that<br />

college student is better off financially than the taxpayer<br />

who’s bailing the student out? What about students<br />

who already paid off their loans and had to work<br />

their way through college? Is it fair to them? What<br />

about students who decided not to go to college because<br />

they couldn’t afford it or didn’t want to assume the responsibility<br />

of a loan? Everyone agrees college costs are<br />

totally out of control, but they knew that when they decided<br />

to commit to a loan to pay for them.<br />

It used to be that a firm handshake was as good as<br />

one’s word. Then the legal world stepped in with the<br />

binding contract approach, ensuring one would be held<br />

accountable for accepting responsibility for one’s decisions.<br />

The current trend is troubling with one’s implied<br />

and formal acceptance of the promises and responsibility<br />

for those decisions becoming worthless.<br />

South Charleston<br />

New mural adorns building in historic district<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

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

A new mural literally welcomes travelers<br />

to South Charleston.<br />

The painted artwork adorns one end of<br />

the row of connected storefronts on South<br />

Chillicothe Street known as the Luckey<br />

Strip, named for George Luckey, a druggist<br />

whose store operated in the strip until 1903.<br />

The storefront with the mural sits across<br />

the alley from St. Charles Borromeo<br />

Catholic Church. Jennifer McKee Crabbe<br />

owns the storefront, which is being renovated,<br />

as well as the business next door, Village<br />

Chic. The mural came about at<br />

Crabbe’s urging.<br />

“Jennifer contacted us and offered the<br />

space,” said Sue Mattinson, a South<br />

Charleston Heritage Commission trustee.<br />

“The commission has discussed the idea of<br />

doing a mural off and on somewhere in<br />

town, but we never moved forward with it.<br />

The mural finally came about because Jennifer<br />

said, ‘Why don’t we really try this?’”<br />

The Heritage Commission applied for<br />

and received a $5,000 grant from the<br />

Springfield Foundation for the project.<br />

Crabbe covered the cost to tuckpoint the<br />

wall to stabilize the bricks. Massie Signs &<br />

Art of Springfield painted the mural, starting<br />

with prep work on June 21.<br />

“We wanted to keep it simple,” Mattinson<br />

said of the mural’s design.<br />

Rather than pictorial, the mural looks<br />

more like a sign. Large letters in an oldfashioned<br />

font read, “Welcome to South<br />

Charleston,” beneath which is the line<br />

“South Charleston Historic District.”<br />

“We picked a font that is easy to read as<br />

you’re going by. It’s a high-traffic area and<br />

has high visibility for anyone going north<br />

through town,” Mattinson said.<br />

The mention of the historic district<br />

serves as a reminder that a large portion of<br />

South Charleston’s central core is on the<br />

National Register of Historic Places. The<br />

late George Berkhofer, founder of the Heritage<br />

Commission, successfully applied for<br />

that designation in 1978.<br />

Inclusion of this information in the mural<br />

lets residents know they live in a historically<br />

significant area, Mattinson said. It’s<br />

also good advertising for anyone passing<br />

through who is a history buff and might<br />

want to learn more about the town’s past.<br />

As for the building that’s now home to<br />

the mural, Mattinson said it dates back to<br />

the 1860s. While it has been vacant for a<br />

while, it has housed a variety of businesses<br />

over the decades, from a meat market to an<br />

appliance store. It also once was the Chatter<br />

Box, an after-school hangout space for children.<br />

A photo from the 1920s shows that the<br />

building’s exposed wall once was a town bulletin<br />

board of sorts, with business advertising<br />

painted on it from top to bottom.<br />

Mattinson said the Heritage Commission<br />

hopes to complete more mural projects in<br />

years to come.<br />

“I think it’s a way to continue to revitalize<br />

our town and make people realize it’s an<br />

attractive and fun village to visit,” she said.<br />

Funded by a Springfield Foundation grant, a new mural now adorns one of the historic<br />

buildings in downtown South Charleston.<br />

This photo, which dates back roughly to the 1920s, shows what’s known as the Luckey<br />

Strip, a row of connected storefronts on South Chillicothe Street in South Charleston.<br />

At that time, the wall at one end of the strip was painted with business advertising. That<br />

same wall now boasts a new mural welcoming travelers to the village.

‘Women in South Charleston’<br />

The South Charleston Heritage Commission is gearing<br />

up for the following events.<br />

• Women of South Charleston. Sue Mattinson, a<br />

South Charleston Heritage Commission trustee, will<br />

present a talk, “Women of South Charleston,” at 2 p.m.<br />

<strong>July</strong> 10 in the Opera House at South Charleston town<br />

hall. Admission is free. Donations will be accepted. Proceeds<br />

go toward the maintenance of the historic opera<br />

house, train depot and log house.<br />

All of the women featured in Mattinson’s presentation<br />

were born prior to 1920, the year women received<br />

the right to vote. Mattinson will talk about what South<br />

Charleston women of that time were doing, what they<br />

were interested in, and how they lived. Because such<br />

details aren’t readily available in traditional history<br />

books, Mattinson had to get creative with her research.<br />

She gleaned information from stories handed down by<br />

mouth, newspaper articles, and U.S. Census data.<br />

“I had great fun doing it,” she said.<br />

Mattinson has stories to tell about women marching<br />

against alcohol, holding book club meetings before the<br />

village had a library, and working as house servants.<br />

She has a snippet from the 1870s about a woman who<br />

sued a barber for getting her husband drunk. She also<br />

tracked sets of sisters to see how their lives differed<br />

from one another once they entered adulthood. These<br />

and many more stories await those who attend the presentation.<br />

one day, instead of two, and is set for Sept. 24.<br />

Kell tackling county projects<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

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

Four months into his new job as <strong>Madison</strong><br />

County’s economic and planning director,<br />

David Kell said he is busier than ever.<br />

“We have a whole bunch of projects we’re<br />

working on. It’s just an exciting time,” he<br />

said.<br />

Kell formerly served as executive director<br />

of the <strong>Madison</strong> County Chamber of Commerce.<br />

Earlier this year, the <strong>Madison</strong><br />

County commissioners created the new position<br />

of economic and planning director,<br />

and Kell won the job.<br />

“As a county, we are growing quickly.<br />

Having someone focused solely on economic<br />

development is important to local officials,”<br />

Kell said about the new position.<br />

While at the Chamber, Kell performed<br />

economic development duties, along with recruitment<br />

and retention of Chamber members,<br />

fundraising, and other tasks. Now, as<br />

an employee of the county, he is channeling<br />

all of his energy into economic development<br />

and planning.<br />

That means business attraction, retention<br />

and expansion, workforce development,<br />

pursuing opportunities for the different<br />

communities in the county, and coordinating<br />

marketing for residential, commercial<br />

and industrial projects.<br />

As for why he was interested in the position<br />

with the county, Kell said, “I wanted<br />

to remain in the<br />

county and keep the<br />

momentum going.”<br />

He reported that,<br />

at any given time, he<br />

is working on three or<br />

four development and<br />

David Kell<br />

planning projects<br />

around the county<br />

and constantly fields<br />

inquiries from businesses<br />

and developers<br />

interested in opportunities<br />

in the county.<br />

Kell’s responsibilities<br />

also include working<br />

on infrastructure improvements, such as<br />

increased water capacity, to help communities<br />

accommodate more growth. His job is to<br />

keep community leaders informed about the<br />

needs of companies interested in developing<br />

in the county and provide them with information<br />

about resources for funding infrastructure<br />

projects.<br />

“I am at the table helping with problem<br />

solving for these different projects,” he said.<br />

While he is no longer employed with the<br />

Chamber, Kell is now a Chamber board<br />

member. He also continues to serve as executive<br />

director of <strong>Madison</strong> County Future<br />

Inc., a community improvement corporation.<br />

STROMBERG<br />

Kim Elaine (Sidner) Stromberg, 1960-<strong>2022</strong>. She<br />

was married to William Stromberg and they were<br />

blessed with daughters RebaJane and Kjersten.<br />

Kim passed on to the refuge and salvation of the<br />

Lord, after a life well-lived, on June 21, <strong>2022</strong>, in the<br />

arms of her family, at Doctors Hospital in Columbus<br />

after a brief illness. She was the daughter of Eugene<br />

O. Sidner, Sr. and Mary Jane (Fisher) Sidner.<br />

Kim was born at Mt. Carmel Hospital, Columbus,<br />

Ohio on April 10, 1960. She grew up in London and<br />

Springfield. Kim was a lifetime member of the<br />

Methodist Church. She graduated from Kenton<br />

Ridge High School in Moorfield township. After<br />

graduation, she enlisted in the United States Air<br />

Force. Successfully completing basic and advanced<br />

training she headed to her assigned technical training<br />

school. She completed all phases of technical<br />

training and hands-on skills, leading to certification<br />

and graduation. She was deployed to an over-seas<br />

<strong>July</strong> 3, <strong>2022</strong> - MADISON MESSENGER - Page 9<br />

conflict zone where she sustained a service-connected disability.<br />

During this deployment she formalized her own personal<br />

doctrine of values and principals that directed her<br />

purposeful actions throughout the rest of her life. Returning<br />

to the United States she began a career as a civilian employee<br />

of the USAF. She worked on unannounced programs.<br />

After the birth of her second child she dedicated all of her<br />

time and energy to the welfare and development of her family.<br />

New enthusiasms were 4H animal husbandry resulting<br />

in prize winning animals exhibited by her children, teaching<br />

vacation bible school, biking, gardening, particularly sunflowers,<br />

okra, and tomatoes, and canoeing. She pursued her<br />

desire for community service by working with and caring<br />

for the severely mentally disabled, working for a number of<br />

organizations and companies specializing in that field. Her<br />

goal was always establishing the dignity of life that all humans<br />

require and deserve. Lastly she pursued a whim and<br />

received her private investigators license. She looked forward<br />

to each day because of the uncertainty of the outcome,<br />

like a sporting contest. Thank you sweetheart, for touching<br />

our lives, it has been a pleasure. She is survived by her loving<br />

husband of 30 years William and daughters RebaJane<br />

and Kjersten. A special thank you to her niece Melanie<br />

Smith and daughter Emily Graves who contributed so much<br />

to Kim’s happiness over her lifetime. She was preceded in<br />

departure from this life by her sisters Nancy and Loretta<br />

Jean and brother Robin. She is survived by Loretta Jean’s<br />

and Robin’s families, brothers Eugene Jr. and Rex and their<br />

families. The family would like to highlight Doctors Hospital<br />

in Columbus for the special care they gave to Kim.<br />

Thank you so much. A Celebration of Kim's Life was held<br />

at the Eberle-Fisher Funeral Home and Crematory, 103 N.<br />

Main St., London, will be held on <strong>July</strong> 9 from 1-3 p.m. In<br />

lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Humane<br />

PAGE 10 - MADISON MESSENGER - <strong>July</strong> 3, <strong>2022</strong><br />

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

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

Crash<br />

Crash the cat is a total sweetie pie. A loving<br />

veterinary office staff gave him his name<br />

after discovering he had been hit by a car. Despite<br />

requiring medicine and medical care, he<br />

remained the sweetest boy.<br />

The shelter staff feels he would do just fine<br />

in a home with other animals, with proper introductions,<br />

of course, and even with kids, as<br />

long as the kids are respectful of animals.<br />

Crash is a short-haired boy and is estimated<br />

to be approximately 1.5 years old. He<br />

loves attention and will reach his paw out<br />

through the kennel door, begging for pets. He would love to go to a<br />

home where he will be your bestest friend. Having gone through so<br />

much hardship already, he very much deserves a cuddle spot indoors,<br />

on the couch/bed, with plenty of toys and cat trees. He would<br />

pay you back for your kindness every day.<br />

The adoption fee is $80 for kittens up to 6 months old and $60<br />

for cats 7 months and older. It includes: a FeLV/FIV test, spay or<br />

neuter, set of shots, deworming, and a one-year rabies shot (if old<br />

enough). Fees can be paid by cash or credit card.<br />

Genius<br />

Genius is a boxer mix who was found out and about by a kind<br />

stranger who caught him and brought him to safety. He is an older<br />

boy at 7 years of age, so while he hasn’t technically reached senior<br />

status, he has a calm temperament and quite a few gray hairs. He<br />

is quite big, weighing in at 77 pounds, and he loves to go on walks<br />

and walks gently on a leash. Genius did well with his dog behavior<br />

testing, too. He matched the energy of other dogs and did appropriate<br />

greetings.<br />

Adoptable Pets<br />

Due to his age and his laid-back style,<br />

though, we feel he would do best with dogs<br />

who aren’t super hyper. That way he won’t<br />

get annoyed, and it will allow him some downtime<br />

to be a couch potato. He went into our<br />

cat adoption room and seemed to be very chill<br />

with the cats, offering sniff and nose boops.<br />

He was curious and friendly but not overly energetic.<br />

This old, dapper dude would make a great<br />

addition to your household if you are looking<br />

for a dog who will chill with you on the couch,<br />

be loyal, go on plenty of walks with you, and just form an unbreakable<br />

bond as he adjusts to your home and wins over your heart.<br />

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

are $200, puppies are $250, and popular pure-breeds are $400. The<br />

price includes: a Home Again microchip, set of shots, deworming,<br />

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

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

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

or credit card.<br />
