Barber named grand showman

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

Confidence and work ethic.

Molly Barber said those traits were key in her runup

to winning this year’s Grand Showman of Showmen

title at the Madison County Fair.

This marked the third time the 17-year-old from the

London area has competed in the contest and her first

win. The contest took place on July 15.

Grand Showman of Showmen brings together the top

exhibitors in each of the animal species shown at the

fair. Contestants qualify by winning the overall showmanship

title for their species during fair week. Those

winners then compete for the grand showman title at

the end of the week by showing not just their specie, but

all of the species.

Barber qualified as the top goat showman, a title she

has won four years in a row. This year would have

marked her fourth trip to the Grand Showman of Showmen

contest, however, the contest was not held in 2020

due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Barber, a member of the Fairfield Rascals 4-H Club

and Madison-Plains FFA, went into this year’s contest

extra prepared. She incorporated into her game plan what

she observed in past trips to the grand showman ring.

“I knew going into it that some of the species were a lot

about knowledge, so I prioritized studying those species

and getting to know what there is to know about them,”

she said, mentioning poultry and rabbits specifically.

As for the confidence element, she said, “I kept reassuring

myself that I was highly capable of showing

ing country music. The group has played at

The Grainery and at other area events and

venues.

Crowd favorite Naked Karate Girls takes

the stage from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. This marks

the third year the band has performed at

Rock The Clock. They are neither naked or

girls; they are a high-energy, fun-loving

dance/rock band who has performed at more

than 3,000 events since 2008. They’ll be

throwing in some country tunes, too.

The headlining act, Filmore, will round

out the evening, playing from 10 to 11:45

p.m. Tyler Filmore, a Missouri native now

living in Nashville, specializes in country

music influenced by pop and electronic elements.

His debut album, “State I’m In,” includes

his newest radio single, “Nothing’s

Better,” along with sing-along favorites,

“Other Girl,” “Love That About You,” and

“Slower.”

“He has a cool vibe about him that I like,”

Dawson said about why he chose Filmore as

this year’s headliner.

Dawson welcomes anyone who would

like to volunteer at Rock The Clock. He

needs people to help with drink wristbands,

beer ticket sales, and beer distribution.

“It takes 105 to 110 volunteers to put this

event on. The more people we get to help,

the easier it is,” he said.

or to sign up to volunteer.

The primary sponsors for Rock The Clock

2022 are Pioneer Roofing and Pioneer Pizza.

Showman of Showmen contest. Participants

often give one another pointers on how to

handle the various animal types. She returned

the favor, offering tips on showing

goats.

“It was a really good experience to get to

know the other species winners,” she said.

Barber got started in 4-H as a Cloverbud

when she was in kindergarten. She has

been with the Fairfield Rascals 4-H Club

throughout her 4-H career, serving as president

the last two years. She joined the

Madison-Plains FFA as a freshman. She

was the chapter’s student advisor last year.

Going into her senior year this fall, she will

serve as secretary.

Barber has always shown goats, in and

out of the 4-H and FFA realm. She competed

in the Midwest Wether Goat Series

for a couple of years and at the Ohio State

Fair where she was named outstanding

market exhibitor for her age group in 2018.

She also has competed in the North American

International Livestock Exposition

(NAILE) in Louisville, Ky.

Looking ahead, Barber hopes to share

her showmanship abilities with other showmen

and has already taken some fellow

youth exhibitors under her wing, one of

whom, Gracie Stingle, won reserve grand

champion in goats this year.

The London Lions Club will have a booth

at the Rhythm & Rib Fest this year, collecting

votes in the “Leo the Lion” coloring contest

for children 12 years old and younger.

The coloring page can be accessed from the

London Ohio Lions Club Facebook page or

picked up in person at the following locations:

London Library, 20 E. First St.; Eades

Insurance, 60 W. High St.; or London Arts

Center, 121 E. First St.

To be eligible for the contest judging,

“It was good to see her grow,” she said.

In addition to serving as a mentor, Barber

hopes to return to showing goats in the

Midwest Wether Goat Series, the Ohio State

Fair, and NAILE.

“I’m focusing on my future life, like college

and career,” she added.

Barber is the daughter of Amy and

Richard Barber.

Agency hosts this free event.

Projects and events are brewing for

Mount Sterling’s parks and recreation.

The village received a $75,000 grant

through the state capital budget for improvements

at Mason Park. The Ohio Department

of Natural Resources will

administer the funding which is due to arrive

in village coffers soon. In the meantime,

local leaders are prioritizing projects for the

park. They have two years to spend the

money.

Mount Sterling’s next movie night at the

park is set for July 30. The public is invited

to come out at 8 p.m. for water games and

kite flying. The Disney film, “Raya and the

Last Dragon,” will be shown on the village’s

inflatable big screen at dusk.

“We had a great turnout for our last

movie night. I hope they just keep growing

and growing,” said Becky Martin, chair of

village council’s parks and recreation committee.

Martin hopes to see the Friends of the

Park committee revived. The group has

goals but is small, she said. Projects are

planned over the course of several years.

Anyone interested in being part of the committee

can call Mayor Marci Darlington at

town hall, (740) 869-2040, ext. 109.

Darlington is raffling off three collections

of goodies with proceeds benefiting Mason

Park: a cooler full of summertime gear, including

the makings for s’mores, water toys,

and water bottles; an Italian-themed food

basket; and a fishing- and camping-themed

equipment and snack basket. Tickets are $1

each or six for $5 and can be purchased by

contacting Darlington at town hall or via

email at mdarlington@mtsterling.org. The

drawing will be held on July 29.

In other news, the village is in the

process of interviewing candidates for the

village administrator position.

Mount Sterling Mayor Marci Darlington is raffling off this summer

fun themed cooler and goodies to benefit Mason Park.

“We hope to have a decision soon. We have projects we need help

with,” Darlington said. “We want to make sure we have the right

candidate for the job. Hopefully, we get somebody who is dedicated

to Mount Sterling and will help with the progress of the village.”

At the July 11 council meeting, Andy Drake, chair of the finance

committee, said the village will be making significant expenditures

on urgent infrastructure projects this year, including fire hydrant

repair, pothole repair, and street marking.

“Some of the numbers will be quite high,” said Drake, who was

quick to add the projects are accounted for in the budget.

Village leaders hope to present their plan for the expenditures

at the July 26 meeting with the state financial commission committee.

Everything will eventually come before council for review and

approval.

“We welcome public input,” Drake said.

The next regular meeting of Mount Sterling village council will

take place at 7 p.m. July 25 in council chambers at town hall. For

more information about the village government, check out Mount

Sterling’s website at www.mtsterling.org.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC INFORMATION MEETING

FOR PROPOSED MAJOR UTILITY FACILITIES

Oak Run Solar Project, LLC (Oak Run Solar) a wholly-owned subsidiary of Savion, LLC (Savion), which

is part of the Shell Group, has scheduled a second public information meeting to discuss the proposed Oak

Run Solar generation and transmission line facilities, to be located in Monroe, Somerford, and Deercreek

Townships, Madison County, Ohio on August 2, 2022.

The generation facility will be sited on approximately 6,060 acres and have a maximum total generating

capacity of up to 800 megawatts (MW), including associated transmission lines and substations. The Project

may also include an advanced battery system up to 300 MW in size. The purpose of the facility is to generate

electricity to inject into the local transmission grid. Construction is anticipated to begin as early as the

fourth quarter of 2023, resulting in commercial operations as early as the fourth quarter of 2025 A map

showing the general outline of the generation Project Area is below. See Ohio Power Siting Board (OPSB)

Case No. 22-549-EL-BGN.

The transmission line facility will support the Oak Run Solar generation facility (OPSB Case No. 22-549-

EL-BGN) and will be a 230 kilovolt (kV) line that will be approximately 3.5 miles long within the Project

boundary. There will be two Project collection substations. The transmission route will begin at each of the

two Project collection substations, joining together near Urbana-West Jefferson Road within the generation

facility footprint, approximately 1 mile southwest of the Village of Plumwood, before continuing east to

the Project step-up substation. The alternate route is also anticipated to initiate at the Project substations

and terminate at the Project step-up substation and, while it is still being developed, it will likely be configured

and located similar to the preferred route, but further to the north, as shown in the map below.

Construction of the transmission line is estimated to begin in the fourth quarter of 2023 and be completed

in the fourth quarter of 2025. The primary purpose of the transmission line is to deliver up to 800 MW of

clean, renewable electricity from the Oak Run generation facility to the regional electric grid to serve the

needs of electric utilities and their customers. See Ohio Power Siting Board OPSB Case No. 22-550-EL-

BTX.

On August 2, 2022, Oak Run Solar will host a second public information meeting for the generation and

transmission line facilities. The public information meeting will take place from 4:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., at

the Monroe Elementary School in Plumwood, Ohio, 5000 OH-38, London, OH 43140. Information describing

the facility will be made available through an open house, posterboard session format. Attendees

may arrive anytime between 4:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. to engage with Oak Run Solar representatives on hand

to answer questions regarding the facilities. Information will be provided about the proposed solar project

and transmission line and about the forthcoming application to the OPSB for the generation and transmission

line facilities.

Oak Run Solar anticipates filing its generation application with the OPSB within 90 days of the public information

meeting. OPSB’s case number for the generation project is 22-549-EL-BGN and the filings

made with the OPSB in the Oak Run Solar’s generation case can be viewed at

https://dis.puc.state.oh.us/CaseRecord.aspx?CaseNo=22-549&x=0&y=0

Oak Run Solar anticipates filing its transmission line application with the OPSB within 90 days of the

public information meeting. OPSB’s case number for the transmission line project is 22-550-EL-BTX and

the filings made with the OPSB in the Oak Run Solar’s transmission line case can be viewed at

https://dis.puc.state.oh.us/CaseRecord.aspx?CaseNo=22-550&x=8&y=19

Information about the generation and transmission line facilities, which includes maps, is available on Oak

Run Solar’s website (www.oakrunsolarproject.com) for viewing by the public at their convenience prior to

the public information meeting. Alternative access to the information is also available upon request by contacting

the Oak Run Solar team at info@oakrunsolarproject.com or (816) 421-9543. The public can submit

comments to Oak Run Solar anytime via Oak Run Solar’s website or in writing via email or mail. Individuals

can also reach out directly to the Oak Run Solar team at the Savion Solar Project Center, located at 15 S.

Main St., Mechanicsburg, OH 43044 to obtain additional information on the Project.

Upon the receipt of the generation and transmission line application(s), OPSB will review the application(s)

to determine if it is complete so OPSB staff can begin its investigation. Should OPSB find the application(s)

complete, OPSB will set a date for public hearing(s), not less than 60 nor more than 90 days after such

finding. The public hearing consists of two parts: a public hearing where OPSB will accept written or oral

testimony and an adjudicatory hearing. 15 days prior to the public hearing, OPSB’s staff will submit a

written report on the Project.

OPSB accepts written comments on the generation and transmission line facilities from interested persons

at any time, as well as written or oral testimony from any person at the public hearing. Petitions to intervene

in the adjudicatory hearing will be accepted by OPSB in accordance with a deadline set by OPSB. To

request notification of the public hearing or submit comments in the docket contact OPSB at 180 E. Broad

St., Columbus, OH 43215, 1-866-270-6772, or contactOPSB@puc.state.oh.us. Petitions to intervene
