Honor Garden

dedicated to veterans

Messenger photos by Dedra Cordle

When Amber Hudson and Elaine Fowler founded the M.A.S.H

(Military and Service Heroes) Food Pantry and Resource

Center, they did so with an intention to create a lavish garden

within the community so that fresh and local fruits and vegetables

could be served to the veterans, first responders, and

their families who need to access the goods offered at the center.

And while the establishment of said garden may have

taken longer than they had originally planned, they can now

say their dream has finally been realized. On July 13, Hudson

and Fowler hosted a public dedication and volunteer appreciation

event as the M.A.S.H Honor Garden on Harrisburg Pike

officially opened for harvesting. “It is so exciting to finally see

this garden up and running, so to speak,” said Hudson, a Navy

veteran. According to the co-founders, they were able to build

the large garden at 5236 Harrisburg Pike after receiving a

grant from Home Depot and finding many willing green

thumbs from local businesses and civic groups who wanted to

assist in the building of and the tending to this special garden.

There are currently 48 raised beds on the property, most built

by members of the Grove City Rotary Club and the American

Legion Post 164, and they are filled with an assortment of

fruits, vegetables and herbs that will now help feed more than

100 local veterans, first responders and their families. “It is so

nice to be able to do this for our heroes,” said Fowler. “Food is

a great comfort, a great way of bringing people together, and

we hope this pantry and garden will be able to help them as

much as they have helped us.” Pictured here (top right) preparing

food for the celebration is Lonnie DuShane, the executive

director of operations at the M.A.S.H Food Pantry and

Resource Center. DuShane previously was a production chef

at Operation Blessing. To see more photos, visit columbusmessenger.com.

Taking action

on mental health

By Andrea Cordle

Grove City Editor

According to the Grove City Division of

Police, 95 people overdosed in the city in

2021 and 11 people died from a drug overdose.

Statistics also show that police

responded to 178 threats of self-harm last

year and six people died by suicide.

This is one of the reasons city council

recently approved a resolution to accept

the Grove City Action Plan to Promote

Mental Health and Prevent Substance Use

Disorders.

Grove City to honor Purple Heart recipients

National Purple Heart Day is Aug. 7, providing an

opportunity for the nation to remember and honor the

brave women and men who were wounded or killed by

an instrument of war in the hands of the enemy.

Grove City will observe National Purple Heart Day

with a ceremony honoring Purple Heart recipients and

their families at 10 a.m., Friday, Aug. 5 at the Purple

Heart Memorial Walk in Henceroth Park, 2075

Mallow Lane.

“The Purple Heart Medal, originally known as the

Badge of Military Merit, is the oldest military honor

still presented to American service members,” said

Mayor Richard “Ike” Stage. “National Purple Heart

Day provides us an opportunity to pay tribute to the

medal recipients across the country and specifically

from Grove City.”

Located next to several memorial military monuments,

the Purple Heart Memorial Walk, is a heartshaped

pathway lined with trees dedicated to Grove

City soldiers or friends of Grove City who lost their

lives in battle, in service or as a result of injuries sustained

through their service to our country. The ceremony

includes elements customarily incorporated into

military observances, including raising the Purple

Heart flag and a reading of the names of those honored

in the Purple Heart Memorial Walk. The ceremony

will close with a moment of silence and playing of

“Taps.”

This year’s Purple Heart Day ceremony will include

Blood drives in Grove City

The American Red Cross will host blood drives in

Grove City at the following locations:

•Bethel Lutheran Church, July 26, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

memorial recognition of Hershel “Woody” Williams,

recipient of the Medal of Honor and Purple Heart

medal recipient for his service during World War II,

who died in June at the age of 98. As a friend of Grove

City, Woody was instrumental in the installation of

the Gold Star Families Memorial Monument and Park

located in the Town Center, and in more than 100

other communities across 50 states and one U.S. territory.

“Woody exemplified service to his country, long

after his active military status,” said John Darnell,

who worked with the Woody Williams Foundation to

bring the monument to Grove City. “It’s fitting that his

sacrifices in battle are recognized alongside the Grove

City service members. Woody would often say, ‘The

cause is greater than I.’”

The public is encouraged to visit the Purple Heart

Memorial Walk, view its memorials and pay homage to

our community’s wounded and fallen heroes. The Walk

will be framed with full-size American flags and illuminated

for after-dark, and will offer reflective strolls

from Friday, Aug. 5 through the morning of Tuesday,

Aug. 9.

All are invited to honor and show appreciation to

Purple Heart recipients and their families. For additional

In 2020, council adopted a resolution to form a substance

abuse and mental health action plan committee.

That committee was formed last year and has met

regularly to create this action plan.

The idea of the plan is to “promote a healthy community

and provide support to foster the highest quality

care and enhance the well-being of all.”

“This is both the finish line and the starting gate,”

said councilwoman Christine Houk, who co-chairs the

action plan committee. “It’s time to roll up our sleeves

and get to work.”

The action plan is broken up into four priorities —

collaboration; education; prevention; and treatment,

harm reduction, and support.

The collaboration aspect focuses on improving communication

among local providers, first responders,

the criminal justice system, the school district, the

faith community, and city administration. This could

include sharing updates and emergency information,

expanding legal options to include recovery resources,

and work with first responders to provide support for

those experiencing mental health and overdose crises.

The education priority focuses on promoting community-wide

mental health awareness and prevention,

as well as promoting awareness and intervention

regarding substance use. The prevention priority aims

to increase resources for prevention efforts. This could

include improving early detection of potential mental

health disorders, identifying areas of high risk in the

city, and supporting drug take-back programs.

The treatment, harm reduction and support aspect

aims to engage the community in harm reduction

efforts and improve access to and awareness of treatment

options. One level of this includes public awareness

and access to Naloxone or Narcan. According to

the Grove City Division of Police, officers administered

31 doses of Narcan, the opioid overdose treatment, in

2021. The Jackson Township Fire Department administered

125 doses last year.

Sheri Dunagan, an action plan committee member,

thanked city leaders for supporting the plan.

“This is meaningful to me and the community,” she

said.

Dr. Marie Schiff, with a local eye care facility, said

she sees theft in the community and at her place of

business. She believes the theft stems from addiction.

“It’s great to see collaborative efforts to get people

the help they need,” said Schiff.

Data will be collected on the focus areas to monitor

the effectiveness of the action plan. The committee will

continue to meet on a regular basis to review data and

reassess the greatest areas of need. An annual report

will be available to the public.

Grove City residents share thoughts on DORA and diversity

By Andrea Cordle

Grove City Editor

Grove City citizens attended a recent

meeting to question one piece of legislation

approved by council and praise other

efforts by city leaders.

Those in attendance addressed concerns

regarding the expansion of the Designated

Outdoor Refreshment Area (DORA) and

offered support for the city’s recent efforts

to become a more inclusive community by

passing legislation to form a diversity task

force and crack down on harassment and

discrimination within the city.

In June, council voted to expand the

DORA to include Sunday. It had operated

from Monday through Saturday.

The outdoor refreshment area was

adopted by city council in 2019. It includes

areas in the Town Center north of

Cleveland Avenue, east of Arbutus Avenue,

south of Civic Place, and west behind City

Hall. In 2021, council voted to expand its

boundaries to the city-owned lot next to the

old library site on Park Street and to the

southeast corner of Civic Place and

Broadway.

The DORA is essentially a waiver of

Grove City’s open container law for a designated

area. It allows patrons of legal age to

buy an alcoholic beverage, from an established

permit holder, and take that drink

outside in marked areas. The drinks are

poured into an identifiable plastic cup.

Participants can sit outside and drink or

they can browse in the designated areas.

Grove City resident Sandra Francis said

she was concerned about the potential for

increased impaired driving in the city.

“The reality is, people drink and drive,”

said Francis.

Francis shared a story about a friend of

hers who lost a loved one in a traffic accident

caused by an impaired driver. She

asked council members if they have ever

lost a loved one to an impaired driver. She

asked them to consider that when making

decisions regarding the consumption of

alcohol.

Local resident Chris Moore said she was

not in favor of the DORA operating any day

of the week. She believes there is an

increase in violence with an increase in

drinking.

“We want to live in a safe community,”

she said.

John Sluss, a resident of Blacklick, even

attended the meeting to speak out against

council’s decision to expand the outdoor

refreshment area, saying there was no

accountability and should not be allowed.

Grove City Mayor Richard “Ike” Stage

said police officers have reported very little

adverse activity related to the DORA. He

said city leaders are not seeing over-drinking.

“In the time we’ve had DORA, we have

not had any significant increases in alcohol-related

incidences,” Stage said.

Proponents of the DORA argue that it

brings more people into the city’s Town

Center and gives the area an economic

boost.

Several residents also spoke about

inclusivity efforts in Grove City.

In February, council approved a resolution

to form the Grove City Community

Diversity Advisory Task Force. The goal of

the task force is to encourage a community

dialogue regarding all aspects of diversity,

including but not limited to race, religion,

sex, national origin, age, disability, status

as a veteran or disabled veteran, sexual

orientation, gender identity, or gender

expression.

There are 12 members on the task force

who will explore opportunities to drive

community conversations related to understanding

different viewpoints and experiences;

evaluate city policies, procedures,

and practices relative to the city’s support

of commitment to diversity and inclusion;

suggest educational and informational programming;

and address long-term community

goals.

“This task force is a step in the right

direction, not just for LGBTQ, but also for

people of color, people with disabilities, and

so many more groups,” said Raven Tadlock

who is a transgender student at Grove City

High School.

Tadlock shared a personal account of

bullying within the community.

“I have experienced people laughing at

me or yelling at me from their vehicles.

Just one Pride flag in downtown Grove City

makes me feel safe,” said Tadlock.

Pam Gatewood, who is the vice president

of Pride in Grove City, thanked city

leaders for being proactive.

“All we want is a safe community for our

kids,” she said.

James Waugh, a retired pastor, thanked

council members for making the city a

friendlier place and addressed comments

made in previous council meetings from

residents who questioned the goals of the

diversity task force. Some speakers cited

their faith as their reason for doubting the

intent of the task force.

“Those people did not represent everyone

in the faith community,” said Waugh.

“From my faith, God welcomes all of God’s

children, including lesbian, gay, bisexual,

transgender, and queer persons. There is a

place for each of us at the table.”

The Grove City Diversity Task Force

meets monthly. The next meeting will be

held from 6 to 7 p.m. Aug. 8 in City Hall.

Task force members will provide council

with an update on its progress semiannually.

Trustees deal with nuisance noise

By Dedra Cordle

Staff Writer

Local law enforcement agencies have

been given a new tool to address public nuisance

complaints within Jackson

Township.

At its meeting in early July, the board of

trustees unanimously approved a resolution

that aims to regulate unnecessary

noise within its boundary areas.

This action will give law enforcement

agencies the authority to cite violators if

they determine certain sounds or noises

have gone “beyond that which is essential

to everyday living.”

Township Administrator Shane

Farnsworth said the trustees do not field

too many complaints related to unnecessary

levels of noise, but he added the officials

needed to take action to address complaints

that have been deemed to be a nuisance

by the neighboring public.

“We did not have anything in place for

our deputies to refer to when they had to

come out on a noise complaint to a business

or residence,” he said. “The resolution that

was passed will provide them with a solid

blueprint to make a determination of what

is an acceptable level of noise within the

township.”

The resolution provides examples of

noises which may be considered a violation

if the pitch is too high or the frequency too

long. It includes horns, radios, televisions,

musical instruments, internal combustion

engines and yelling and shouting.

The resolution also includes other noises

from motor vehicles; if one is found to be

“jake-breaking,” the human offender could

be fined a maximum of $100.

Officials noted engine-breaking offenses

have significantly gone down due to more

technologically advanced vehicles on the

road today.

While the latter noise restriction applies

throughout the township, the former list

does not. According to Farnsworth, the

noise resolution will only apply to certain

areas within its boundaries.

“It is geared toward the areas that have

a Class D liquor permit or are otherwise in

a residential setting,” he said. “This resolution

does not apply to agricultural equipment

and it does not apply to the industrial

areas of Jackson Township.”

The resolution to regulate unnecessary

noise within the township went into effect

immediately after it was signed by the

trustees.

How to gets students motivated to learn

Musical instrument drive

As it transitions to a school for arts, the

Central Point Preparatory Academy will

host a musical instrument drive so each

student will have an instrument. Those

interested are asked to drop off any gently

used musical instrument at 680

Harrisburg Pike in Columbus from July 15

through Aug. 30. For more information,

call 614-669-6305.

Looking for a safe, loving, learning environment

for your preschooler? ABC Christian

Preschool is a great choice.

Our small class sizes and dedicated staff

allows us to provide quality instruction and personalized

activities for your child.

We believe all children are created in God’s

image with unique interests and approaches to

learning. ABC Preschool utilizes a “play-based”

curriculum, that allows children to develop at

their own levels while building strong language

news and notes

Students may need some time to adjust

at the beginning of a new school year.

Summer vacations typically lack the structure

of the school year, and it might be

unfair to expect kids to seamlessly slip

back into their more regimented lives as

students.

While some early school year sluggishness

might be normal, that should wear off

pretty quickly. If not, and students appear

to be struggling to get motivated for their

schoolwork, parents can try various strategies

that should help reignite youngsters’

passions for learning.

•Make your home more school-friendly.

Summer is a relaxing time of year when

parents have a tendency to relax rules

around the house. But come the school

year, parents must make sure their homes

are as conducive to studying as possible.

Resist the urge to turn the television on

each night so students are not distracted

from their studies. Keep the home quiet so

students are motivated to focus on their

studies.

•Encourage participation in extracurricular

activities. Various studies have

examined the relationship between

extracurricular activities and academic

performance. A 2002 study published in

the journal Sociology of Education found

that participation in extracurricular activities

is associated with improved grade

point average, increased college attendance

and reduced absenteeism. The link

between participation in extracurricular

activities and improved academic performance

is still in need of study, but such

participation may help children acclimate

to the structure of the school year more

quickly than they might if they do not participate

in such activities.

•Encourage curious youngsters. Kids

are curious, and fostering that curiosity

can be a great way for parents to get their

kids excited about learning. Whether its

during the school year and part of their

curriculum or on summer break, encourage

kids to engage in subjects that interest

them. As kids learn more about the topics

and subjects that interest them, they may

develop a passion for learning that they

can then take with them to the classroom.

•Express an interest in the subjects

children are studying. Another way to

motivate students at the dawn of a new

school year is to express an interest in the

subjects they’re studying. Ask questions

about their studies and encourage them to

share their thoughts and opinions.

Engaging students about the subjects

they’re studying can motivate them to

explore those subjects more deeply than

they otherwise might.

Back in the late 1950s, in a small and

sleepy town in Upstate New York, one of

the biggest heists of all time was pulled off

by a mastermind. It was the scene of the

Great Cookie Caper Robbery, as skillfully

executed and daring as anything Jesse

James, John Dillinger, Butch Cassidy or

Bonnie and Clyde ever pulled off. Until

now, some 50 plus years later, it’s been an

unsolved mystery and the subject of much

speculation. Could it really have been only

a little boy that pulled off such a skillful

robbery? Just who was the original Cookie

Monster before Sesame Street brought

fame to the character? I know who it was.

It’s time to finally fess up and close the

case.

The robbery took place when mom went

to the corner store. That left me alone for a

few precious moments. That’s all I needed.

I’d staked out the kitchen and knew the

freshly baked cookie jar stash (not coincidentally

chocolate chip, my favorite) was

up on the top shelf of the kitchen cupboard.

With mom gone I moved swiftly. Slide a

chair over, climb up onto the counter, a little

stretch with the arms and within seconds

the cookies were all mine. No muss,

no fuss, no blood, just crumbs, i.e., the evidence.

I headed back to my room chomping

away and planning where to hide the

excess goodies for future delight.

I heard the door and knew mom was

back. Time to act cute and innocent. Before

long, a knock on the door. “David, have you

been in the cookies, they’re all gone?”

“Cookies, what cookies? No mom, I didn’t

even know we had any.” “Can you explain

the trail of cookie crumbs on the counter

and all along the floor leading to your

door?” “I haven’t any idea, mom. Do you

suppose we might have a mouse in the

house?” “Maybe a two-legged one.” Steve

Urkel hadn’t come to be yet so I couldn’t do

my looking sheepishly imitation of him,

“did I do that?” Instead I blurted out,

“Mom, I didn’t do it, that’s just circumstantial

evidence (a term I’d heard when she

was watching Perry Mason).” “Wash your

face, you’ve got chocolate on your growing

nose.” “Mom, I didn’t do it!” Mom had a

smirk on her face as she dropped the subject

and walked away. As I look back, it

was sadly funny, me actually thinking I’d

been able to fool mom.

But deep down I knew she knew, and

that’s hounded me my entire life. So, all

these years later I’m ready to confess. I

can’t take the feeling of guilt any longer.

“Mom, if you can hear me up there, I did it.

You were right, just as always. Forgive me

for I knew not what I did. I’m ready to

repent and accept full responsibility for my

actions.”

That story was based on a true event, at

least as how I remember it after so many

years. During my lifetime I’ve been guilty

of not accepting responsibility for my

actions when I should have. But to my

credit, the trend has steadily decreased

with every passing year. When things go

wrong, as they do and always will through

no fault of my own, I still get ticked off and

resist taking responsibility and blame. But

I’ve learned to be more open-minded to the

possibility that maybe it was me who

messed up and just maybe I should accept

the blame and responsibility for the conscious

decisions I make. A novel concept in

the trying current times we now live in.

I’ve made many good decisions in my

lifetime, often the result of well thought

out effort and planning, sometimes learning

from past failed experiences, many

times just by lucking out. I’ve also made

just as many or more bad decisions and

found myself having to regroup more often

than I should have. They’ve left me questioning

why I hadn’t put more time and

effort into the original decision making

process. But I’ve finally learned that when

I’ve dealt myself a failure, to just suck it up

and not make excuses, just accept the consequences,

and take responsibility for my

unwise decisions, try to rectify, and learn

from them.

Unfortunately, we’re seeing just the

opposite happening in today’s society. Even

more troubling is it’s too often being condoned

by those who should be questioning

this disturbing trend. Accepting responsibility

where due for one’s actions, or lack of

actions, has become a lost virtue. The name

of the game now seems to be to pass the

buck along to someone else, it’s never your

fault.

It’s one thing to look for excuses and

pass blame along when you’re a kid, it’s

usually not judged too harshly and accepted

as part of the learning process on the

road of experience. Teenagers too are still

learning and notorious for not accepting

blame, much as I was. But it’s quite another

thing when it’s done once you’ve entered

the realm of a theoretical maturing adult.

We’re seeing more and more of the pass

that blame and expect a bailout attitude at

that adult level every day.

One only need look at the leadership of

this country at most every level, starting at

the very top, to see who’s setting the example

for us and driving the disturbing trend

to new heights as an accepted practice.

When was the last time you saw a politician

accept the responsibility for anything

that wasn’t seen as positive to one’s political

career? You’ll see them quickly taking

credit without batting an eyelash for anything

that goes right, even if they had nothing

to do with it, but anything negative?

Let the blame game begin. It’s always

someone else’s fault. It becomes so childish

and phony to see as they play the pin the

tail on the donkey political game instead of

showing some maturity and fessing up and

accepting blame. If only they’d put an

equal amount of time and effort into dealing

with our endless list of serious needs

instead of so much time trying to deflect

accepting responsibility for their bad decisions

and anything that doesn’t go right.

To make the point, consider the hotly

debated college loan forgiveness efforts

that keep making the news. A conscious

decision, perhaps a poor one, is made by a

student to secure a federal loan for college

costs along with signing a commitment

that promises to repay the loan. Now many

are defaulting on their agreement and

want their remaining balances to be forgiven

by the government. They don’t feel they

should have to accept the responsibility of

their decision. No, now the government

should be held accountable and bail them

out.

But wait a minute, the government is

funded by taxpayers. That means when

students default, or their loans are forgiven

and their debt reduced or wiped clean, the

taxpayer must pick up the tab? So, someone

who’s living check to check, maybe

must have a few jobs to barely make ends

meet for the family and perhaps couldn’t

afford to go to college but pays taxes, must

bail out the college student’s debt? And

maybe the family of that college student is

better off financially than the taxpayer

who’s bailing the student out? What about

student’s who already paid off their loans

and had to work their way through college?

Is it fair to them? What about students who

decided not to go to college because they

couldn’t afford it or didn’t want to assume

the responsibility of a loan? Everyone

agrees college costs are totally unrealistic

and out-of-control. But they knew that

when they decided to commit to a loan to

pay for them.

It used to be a firm handshake was as

good as one’s word. That’s all that was

needed. Then the legal world stepped in

with the binding contract approach insuring

one would be held accountable for

accepting responsibility for one’s decisions.

The current trend is troubling with one’s

implied and formal acceptance of the

promises and responsibility for those decisions

becoming worthless.

Meeting a feathered friend

After two years of cancellations caused by the COVID-19 pandemic,

the art and music festival known as Summer Jam West

has finally returned. On July 9, hundreds of people throughout

the region came out to Westgate Park to shop at the dozens of

artisan booths on hand, enjoy live performances, and generally

have a great time. “It is so wonderful to have this festival back,”

said Danny Peterson, board president of the Hilltop Arts

Collective, the local non-profit which hosts the festival and

other arts-related programs around the westside. Here, Grove

City resident Thomas Harper has a positive interaction with

Mickey, a 26-year-old Hyacinth macaw at the festival. He said the

last time he had a close encounter with a large bird at a pet

store, it came close to attacking his face. “This was a much

nicer experience,” he said. The well-behaved bird and his

friends were at the festival courtesy of owners Jan and Will.

purr. Nikky was a

porch cat and when

her owners moved,

she was left behind.

She was very friendly when a Colony Cats

volunteer came to feed her and was quite

happy when the volunteer brought her to

Adapting a popular novel for another medium can

be a difficult undertaking, to say the least. Not only do

the directorial and writing teams have to determine

which material could be modified or cut altogether to

make the written word more viable on the screen or

stage, they also have to balance the demands and

expectation of the fervent fanbase. If they manage to

get it right, all who worked on the adaptation will be

hailed as heroes and their names will be etched onto

the walls of the halls of greatness forever. But if they

manage to get it wrong, however, all who worked on

the adaptation will be vocally eviscerated and their

names cast down into the pits of social media hell and

the depths of personal grievance grudges for all of eternity.

In the case of the newly released adaptation of

wildlife scientist Delia Owens’ best-selling fictional

novel “Where the Crawdads Sing,” there is a very good

chance director Olivia Newman, screenwriter Lucy

Alibar and the primary cast of actors will find themselves

in the former category, although their reception

into the hall may be a bit more tepid. While the cast

and crew have managed to make an incredibly faithful

adaptation of the 2018 atmospheric murder-mystery,

it does often stumble in its transition from page to

screen, making it feel more inert and static than viscerally

eerie or threatening.

Like the novel on which it is based, the film starts

with the discovery of a body. The year is 1969 and two

boys riding along the wooded pathways of a North

Carolina marsh find the partially submerged remains

of an adult male. It is later determined to be the body

of the town’s Golden Boy Chase Andrews (Harris

Dickinson), a former high school football hero with an

apparent sterling reputation. Local law enforcement

officials initially surmise he fell to his death from the

rickety fire tower after a night of heavy drinking, but

a trip to the local bar and grill soon has them changing

their tune.

Since the Clark family moved to the semi-affluent

area decades prior, the townies have largely treated

them as pariahs. Deeply poor and living in isolation,

they are jeered at and mocked, especially the youngest

child Kya (played by Jojo Regina and then Daisy

Edgar-Jones) who becomes something of a myth when

word spreads she was abandoned by her family.

Derisively referred to as “The Marsh Girl,” this “halfwoman,

half-wolf missing link” becomes the town’s

prime suspect in Chase’s untimely demise.

“She probably put a spell on him, lured him out

there, and killed him,” says one bar patron as they talk

about the rumored and illicit relationship between the

two. Despite having just innuendoes and age-old biases

to go on — no fingerprints, footprints, or other materials

were found at the death scene — the police officers

decided to arrest Kya and charge her with his murder.

The Reel Deal

Dedra Cordle

Like the book, the film

switches between the past and

the present, flashing between

Kya’s lonely upbringing as she

tries to raise herself in the wild

marshes, her first blush of

teenage love with the wellmeaning

neighbor Tate Walker

(Taylor John Smith), her contemptuous relationship

with the two-faced Chase, and her time on trial for his

murder. But what works on the page doesn’t also work

on the screen, and this set up is a primary example of

it not working the way it was intended.

While I was not the biggest fan of Owens’ “Where

the Crawdads Sing,” I thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere

of her creation and her use of ambiguity as it

pertains to the murder-mystery portion of the plot. In

the novel, there are multiple suspects in Chase’s death

and enough conflicting witness statements to muddy

the waters of who was seen where and when. In the

film, the finger is pointed directly at Kya and only Kya,

striping all sense of ambiguity and presenting a much

less complicated case during the integral courtroom

scenes.

And therein lies the main issue I had with the theatrical

adaptation of “Where the Crawdads Sing”, the

stripping down of the hidden grittiness of the book.

Though lushly capturing the weird majesty of marshes

and swamps and the creatures that call it home, the

film douses everything with a sense of beauty, including

the childhood home of Kya. In my mind, this cabin

was a holler shack, the kind I saw while traveling to a

Kentucky town to see my paternal family’s own holler

shack (a truly great vacation). In the film, which was

produced by Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine

media company, it looks barely weathered and magical,

like you would find fairy lights strung up throughout

— it was genuinely a surprise when they never

showed up.

With the ambiguity of the murder and grittiness of

the people and the environment paired back, “Where

the Crawdads Sing” often feels like a fancy Hallmark

or Lifetime movie, designed to be pleasant to look at

and unoffensive and unchallenging. Though efficiently

acted, filmed, and written, there is something missing

within the spirit of this adaptation but not enough I

would say to turn away or turn off dedicated fans of the

book or newbies to the world of Kya Clark and Delia

Owens. Grade: C+

Zoning, trash, and drainage issues discussed in Pleasant Township

By Hannah Poling

Staff Writer

Residents are concerned about safety in

Pleasant Township.

Linda Pena attended the July 12 meeting

of the Pleasant Township Trustees to

address some concerns she had on and near

her property. Pena lives on Bellview Drive.

She said her home is near a school and

small children walk in front of and play

nearby her home often.

“There is a giant hole in the sidewalk,”

said Pena. “It’s dangerous for kids.”

She also mentioned that there is a dead

tree on the corner, which has branches

which keep falling off.

“A few weeks ago a giant piece fell and

we had to drag it through my yard,” Pena

said.

Road Superintendent Robert Bausch

said he believes this maintenance is the

responsibility of Darby Dale, but that he

would look into it further.

Additionally, Pena is concerned about

her business. She runs a food truck and

had opened it up on her property. However,

the Franklin County Zoning Department

was called out.

“I want to do business here in the community,”

said Pena.

Pena said that she has talked to officials

with the zoning department about operating

her food truck on her property, but said

the process to do so is long. She also

attempted to park the truck at a local gas

station and was shut down by zoning.

“I can’t even park my food truck on my

property and it’s getting very expensive

and time consuming. I had to move my food

truck out of Darby Dale and go back to

Columbus,” she said.

According to board chairwoman Nancy

Hunter, there is an appeal process that

Pena can look into regarding operating her

food truck in Pleasant Township.

Lorin Smith also attended the meeting

to discuss problems in his neighborhood.

According to Smith, he has been having

poor trash service as of late.

“They have a lack of respect and peoples

trash cans are getting broke,” he said.

Smith said that he has had to purchase

three trash cans to replace ones damaged

by the trash service.

Hunter instructed Smith that if he continues

to have these issues, to contact her

the same day so she can inform the company

and have them pull the cameras off of

the trucks to use for training purposes.

Smith also informed the trustees of an

eight-inch bubble in the alley between

Rush Street and Railroad Street, as well as

the pot holes and damaged roads on

Railroad Street toward Rivers Street.

Bausch said he was aware of these

issues and will be looking into what the

necessary repairs would be.

Smith also shared his concerns related

to a drainage problem on Railroad Street

where there is a damaged drainage tile.

When there is heavy rain, the water comes

close to entering his neighbor’s house.

Bausch said he would look into the

issue.
