Exploring ‘oceans of

possibilities’ at Westland

Messenger photos by Dedra Cordle

As residents of Galloway, Erin Heintz and her two children do

not often get to see animals that are found living within a Tide

Pool, but the family from the westside were recently able to get

up close and personal with quite a few of them courtesy of the

Southwest Public Libraries. On July 27, the Grove City Library

and the Westland Area Library welcomed conservationists and

animal ambassadors at the Newport Aquarium in Newport,

Kentucky as they wrapped up their ocean-themed Summer

Reading Challenge. “We wanted to bring programs that were

fun and educational for the entire family and having representatives

with the Newport Aquarium come here to present

always delivers on both of those fronts,” said Jane Barnhart,

the youth services team lead at the Westland Area Library. For

close to an hour, Newport Aquarium conservation educators

Daphne Schaaf and Jordan Zulli spoke to a crowd of more than

100 children and adults about the amazing animals found within

Tide Pools, how they survive and adapt to their changing

and hostile environments, and then supervised as the attendees

got to touch hermit crabs, fighting conchs, sea urchins

and a lively horseshoe crab named Mushroom. Shown here

getting to touch a lively horseshoe crab is Erin Heintz and her

children Evelyn, 4, and William, 6. Heintz said not only did her

family have a great time learning about these fascinating animals,

but they also had a great time participating in the

Summer Reading Challenge that ran from June 4 through July

31. “That is always a fun time for us,” she said.

Westside crisis

center planned

By Hannah Poling

Staff Writer

A new crisis center is planned for the

westside of Columbus.

Patrick Mclean, with ADAMH, attended

the July meeting of the Westland Area

Commission to discuss the center, which is

currently in its planning stage.

“Most of us, or one out of every five residents

of Franklin County, will have a

mental health situation of some kind in a

given year,” said Mclean.

ADAMH’s goal is to provide a center to

the community, which will be open around

the clock. The center will target adults

that are experiencing a mental health or

addiction-related crisis in Franklin County

Continued from page 1

regardless of residency or insurance.

The 72,000 square foot center will be located on

three acres of land on Harmon Avenue. They anticipate

that approximately 34,000 people would use the

center each year.

“All of the data we have states that the need for

mental health services is growing,” said Mclean.

The center will include a 24/7 walk in, 23-hour

observation, and 16 inpatient beds with the anticipation

that most long-term stays will be somewhere

between three and seven days. The facility will also

include substance use disorder treatment services,

pharmacy services, medical services, family support

services, and community services.

ADAMH’s goal is to stabilize individuals at this center,

get them out of crisis, and then connect them with

services outside of the facility for long-term care. This

project has the support from the federal and state governments,

as well as from philanthropic organizations

and hospital systems.

The project is set to break ground this year and they

anticipate that the crisis center will open in 2024.

Breakfast at the Lodge

to be compatible with the adjacent homes.

According to Dugger, “Typical Redwood tenets are

high quality. The low density neighborhood appeals to

older residents, empty nesters and young professionals.”

The square footage is between 1,294 and 1,620

square feet depending on the apartment. The monthly

rent is between $1,875 and $2,275.

There are three existing wetlands on the property,

which have been integrated into the project design.

“We modified our design from what we had before to

preserve the wetlands,” said Foley. “We created another

wetland feature so that this wetland stays wet.”

Redwood plans to have a 70-foot retention pond.

The retention pond will have a 40-inch aluminum

fence, which will run the length of the pond for safety

measures. Redwood is also required to have a 25-foot

setback from the property line however, they are committing

to a 100-foot set back instead.

“Anything on our project will be engineered first

and foremost to maintain offsite drainage,” said Foley.

The wetlands will function independently and all

roof drains, and gutters will take the water out where

it naturally wants to flow in a controlled released

method and storm sewers will be directing the water to

the retention pond. The water will be released at the

southeast corner of the property.

Redwood Living requested a council variance to

alter the R4 building requirements. R4 zoning requires

four unit buildings on the lot. Redwood however, wants

to do a combination of four-unit and eight-unit buildings

together on a lot. The council variance was

approved by the commission.

Trustees place home rule measure on November ballot

By Amanda Ensinger

Staff Writer

A local township is once again considering

becoming a limited home rule government.

At a special Franklin Township meeting,

the board of trustees discussed how

they could move forward with becoming

this type of government.

“The population of the unincorporated

area needs to be 15,000 before the board

can unanimously pass the resolution,” said

Julie Donnan, an attorney for the township.

“It needs to go to the voters for adoption.”

In 2016 and 2017, the township asked

residents to approve becoming a limited

By Amanda Ensinger

Staff Writer

At a recent meeting, the Prairie

Township trustees discussed an increase in

crime in the area.

Among the items discussed was an

increase in vandalism calls in the North

Village neighborhood. The calls range from

punctured vehicle tires to vehicle windows

being broken. Currently, no suspects have

been apprehended and no charges have

been filed.

home rule government. In 2016, voters

opposed this with 64 percent voting against

it. In 2017, voters again rejected the ballot

measure with 61 percent in opposition.

If the township would have become a

limited home rule government, it would

have given the board power to more quickly

enact rules already laid out by Franklin

County and the Ohio Revised Code. Policies

the board has said they would like to

enforce in the township that they currently

cannot because of their lack of authority

include creating a no-knock registry, ordinances

related to high weeds, and eliminating

junk cars on properties.

The trustee said that becoming a limited

home rule government would allow the

Several people have been issued citations

for illegally riding dirt bikes on the

township roadways. Franklin County

deputies also have been recovering stolen

vehicles, including recovering seven cars in

one month.

The sheriff’s office is also investigating

four homicides that recently occurred in

the township. Two occurred on the west

side and the other two on the east side.

“I would like to ask residents to call the

sheriff’s office if they see suspicious activity,”

said Deputy Corbin Wood. “It helps

township to crack down on nuisances in the

community, such as solicitors, overgrown

grass and high weeds, and a variety of

other laws that are currently are being violated

in the township.

It also would give the board the authority

to offer incentives to businesses to

encourage them to locate in the township.

“It would be an opportunity to do a few

good things for the township and enhance

our business situation,” said Franklin

Township trustee Ralph Horn.

After an executive session, the board

voted unanimously to add it to the

November ballot.

While the board said it is up to the residents

to approve or reject this reject, they

did say in the meantime, they would continue

to look at things they can to do to

improve the township without a limited

home rule.

“This needs to be voted upon in an election

by the voters,” said Franklin Township

trustee Jim Leezer. “However, there are

things the board can do without being

home rule to make changes.”

The trustees also said they believe a limited

home rule government was previously

rejected due to misinformation.

“I think some people campaigning

against it was detrimental,” Horn said. “I

also think there should have been more of

a commitment to get information out about

it.”

Concerns about an increase in crime discussed in Prairie Township

with solving local crimes”

Prairie Township resident Cheryl

Cornelius asked about homeless camps and

the progress that has been made.

“Some businesses are giving permission

to help stop the loitering and panhandlers,”

Wood said. “Some provide handouts to the

homeless to get them some help and we

need to educate them as much as possible.”

In other news, the fire department

asked the board to approve posting an

opening for full-time administrative assistant

position for the fire department.

McAninch also asked the board to adopt

a resolution allowing the township to spend

$50,000 for new ADA ramps, replacements

and sidewalk installation and repairs.

“The locations are the sidewalk paths

through Lincoln Village North to Prairie

Lincoln,” he said. “The new sidewalk and

ADA ramps will connect gaps around the

Hilton and S. Murray Hill areas to West

Broad Street and will connect a gap of sidewalk

on the west side Oak Park between

Maple Park Way and Cedar Court.”

This photo from 1978 features young children at Teddy Bear Day at the Hilltop

Library, then located at 2955 West Broad St. The children are unidentified, but it

appears that they loved sharing their teddy bears at the library. This location was

named the Hilltop Branch of the Public Library of Columbus and Franklin County

(renamed the Columbus Metropolitan Library in 1989). The branch manager at this

location then was Barbara Clark. The Hilltop and Hilltonia branches were consolidated

into a 20,000 square foot facility at 511 South Hague Ave. in 1996 and expanded

to 32,500 square feet in 2020. If you have a photo to share, contact Stacy

Nicotine to help treat memory loss?

A study funded by the National Institutes of

Health is testing whether the nicotine patch can

improve memory and functioning in people who

have mild memory loss or Mild Cognitive

Impairment (MCI).

The MIND Study – or Memory Improvement

through Nicotine Dosing – is the largest and

longest running study of its kind. MIND is looking

for study volunteers who have mild memory

loss but are otherwise healthy, non-smokers over

the age of 55. According to the Alzheimer’s

Association, approximately 12 to 15 percent of

people age 65 or older have mild memory loss or

MCI and are more likely to develop Alzheimer’s

disease or other dementias. Currently, there is no

FDA approved medication indicated to treat this

condition; however, nicotine stimulates an area in

the brain known to be important for thinking and

memory, and scientists believe it could be an

effective treatment for adults with MCI.

“People often think nicotine is addictive and

harmful, because it is in tobacco products, but it’s

safe when used in patch form,” said Paul

Newhouse, MD, director of the Vanderbilt Center

for Cognitive Medicine and lead investigator for

the MIND Study. “Nicotine is an inexpensive,

readily available treatment that could have significant

benefits for people experiencing mild memory

impairment.”

The MIND Study needs people to enroll in

sites across the United States. Researchers are

looking for healthy, non-smoking adults over the

age of 55 who are in the earliest stages of memory

loss to participate in the MIND Study.

“The MIND Study will provide valuable information

for researchers with regard to early memory

loss that is associated with normal aging and

early Alzheimer’s disease, but we need volunteers

if we are going to succeed,” said Dr. Douglas

Scharre, Director, Division of Cognitive

Neurology, Center for Cognitive and Memory

Disorders.

You, or a loved one, may be eligible to participate

if you have been diagnosed with MCI or if

you or your family members notice changes in

your memory:

•Are you, or a loved one, having difficulty

remembering recent events? Have you noticed

changes in your memory or your loved one’s

memory?

•Is your memory as good as it was two years

ago? If you asked someone close to you about

your memory, what would they say?

Potential study volunteers can learn more by

visiting www.MINDStudy.org or by calling 1-

New Hilltop Early Learning Center

offers vital educational opportunities

A 2018 report from the Hilltop Early

Childhood Partnership showed that fewer children

residing in the Hilltop neighborhood were

enrolled in high-quality early learning programs

than anywhere else in the city.

Pre-kindergarten, designed for children ages

3-5, is not a requirement in the U.S. and as such

is often overlooked as a vital part of our children’s

educational journeys.

However, research shows crucial brain development

happens in the first five years of life and

pre-kindergarten helps kids grow important skills

and develop a drive to learn. Beyond academics,

it’s critical for developing empathy, self-regulation

of emotions, expression of feelings and more.

The Hilltop Early Learning Center, opening

this fall on Clarendon Avenue, offers area families

a new educational opportunity for their preschool

age children.

“We’re giving Hilltop families an advantage,”

said Paula Neal, Hilltop Partnership Director.

“Hilltop Early Learning Center prepares your

children to achieve at an early age, putting them a

step ahead by the time they reach kindergarten.”

The curriculum is built specifically for the

Hilltop community by working with many partners

to embrace the cultures and traditions of the

neighborhood. Plus, it’s free to attend.

“All children deserve opportunity, nurturing,

and support,” said Neal. “We’re removing the

standard barriers to early learning to ensure

Hilltop’s children get access to a space that prepares

them for success in kindergarten and in

life.”

Those wishing to learn more can visit hilltopearlylearning.org

or attend a community listening

session at the Hilltop Library on July 27 at

5:30 p.m.

Billie is a sweet 2-

year-old Siamese

mix who is eager to

find his forever

home. He is

neutered, microchipped,

up to date

on vaccines and negative

for FL/FIV. Billie

is up for adoption

through Colony Cats.

FYI: colonycats.org

Pets of the week

Stache got his name

because he has half

a mustache. This 1-

year-old is very

friendly and loves to

be with other cats.

He would love to be

adopted with Missy

since they came from

the same place. He

must go home with at

least one other cat because he doesn’t like to

be alone. Will your home be Stache’s furever

home? Adopt him through Friends for Life

Animal Haven.

FYI: fflah.org

These furry friends are available

for adoption at local

rescues and shelters

Missy is a very

sweet, but shy girl.

She loves to be held.

Missy will need time

to adjust to a furever

home. She would like

to be adopted with

her friend, Stache as

they came from the

same home. She will

need to be in a home

with at least one other cat because she doesn’t

like to be alone. This girl likes to purr and is

up for adoption through Friends for Life.

FYI: fflah.org

Beana is a female pit

bull with a heart of

gold. She loves to go

for walks, and will

start spinning in circles

with excitement

whenever she sees

her leash. She will

run like the wind if

you let her, and then

will get tired and flop

down on the ground for some quality relaxation

time. She loves to be somewhere she

can keep an eye on you, like a couch or chair.

Adopt her through the Franklin County Dog

Shelter.

FYI: franklincountydogs.com

Air Show flies into Columbus

The Columbus Air Show Presented by

Scotts returns in 2023 with a three day

show from June 16, 17, and 18, 2023 at

Rickenbacker International Airport, 2241

John Circle Drive, Columbus.

This will be the first air show in

Columbus in more than 15 years. The last

show attracted more than 150,000 visitors,

according to air show officials.

According to air show officials, an extra

day was added to the show due to the

demand from the community. Ticket prices

for the Friday part of the show will be discounted

from the weekend dates.

Scotts Miracle-Gro Company has signed

on as the event’s presenting sponsor.

Officials stated Scotts’ partnership allowed

the show to expand.

The preliminary performer lineup for

the 2023 Columbus Air Show includes the

U.S. Navy Blue Angels, U.S. Marine Corps

C-130 “Fat Albert,” The Ohio Air National

Guard KC-135, B-17 Flying Fortress

“Yankee Lady,” B-25 Mitchell “Rosie’s

Reply,” C-47 Skytrain “Hairless Joe,” world

aerobatic champion Rob Holland, and the

Smoke-n-Thunder Jet Car.

Also part of the show will be the Scotts

Aviation Showcase, which will feature a

number of “warbirds” vintage military aircraft

participating each day in formation

flying and on static display.

General public ticket sales begin in

early August. There will be a variety of

The U.S. Navy Blue Angels will perform in

Columbus for the first time in more than a

quarter century.

options including general admission and

several limited quantity premium seating

areas. Tickets will only be available online

at www.ColumbusAirShow.com.

Visit www.ColumbusAirShow.com for

information and follow the show on

Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

As a civil—military public airport,

Rickenbacker International Airport is also

home to the Ohio Air National Guard’s

121st Air Refueling Wing, Ohio Army

National Guard's Army Aviation Support

Facility No. 2, the U.S Army, Navy and

Marine Corps Reserves, and the headquarters

for the Ohio Military Reserve.

Although the air show will be held on the

civilian side of the facility, it is anticipated

the local military units will be invited to

have a presence at the show.

In Entertainment

“e Gray Man” is a slick action thriller

Have you grown tired of the ultra-slick

and stylized action films of today? Do you

ever wish there would be more in the same

vein of those cheeky and cheesy highoctane

thrillers that were so abundant in

the past? Well, if you have in fact found

yourself wishing for just that, you might be

in luck as there is a new offering that could

be well-suited for your exquisite, albeit

extremely questionable, taste.

In Netflix’s latest attempt at the action

movie blockbuster, “The Gray Man” hits

the ground running early with a slew of

cheeky puns, groan-inducing quips, and

intense scenes of action and mayhem.

Rarely does it let up throughout the course

of its two-plus hour run time although

sometimes you wish they would scale it

back just a smidge. Small and par-for-thecourse

annoyances do lay within — as do

some more serious issues with choppy transitional

editing in a plot that incorporates

an international cat-and-mouse game — but

this film is overall a delightfully stupid

throwback to the action classics of the

1980’s and 1990’s.

Instead of using an overly beefy star like

they would in the action films of yesteryear,

the heavy lifting in the heavily

action-packed film comes from Ryan

Gosling, who is known more as a svelte

beefcake rather than a meaty meatball.

While some in the audience may find his

lack of a physically intimidating body too

unbelievable for this role (I argue that slim

people can pack a punch and dodge the fists

of 100 foes just as easily as a well-muscled

person can) he performs it quite capably in

all aspects because he can, you know, act

and emote unlike some of his action-star

brethren.

In this film, he plays Sierra Six (an OK

name for an action hero though it is no

John Matrix), a member of a covert team

within the CIA that is made up of former

criminals, some more reformed than the

others. Recruited by program lead Donald

Fitzroy (Billy Bob Thornton), he is tasked

with carrying out off-the-books assassinations

throughout the world although the

toll weighs heavily on his mind, body and

soul.

Upon the retirement of his long-time

handler, Six believes he may have found a

way out of the killing business, but you

know how it goes with shadowy organizations:

Just when you think you’ve found a

way out, they pull you right back in. The

person doing the pulling this time is Denny

Carmichael (Rege-Jean Page), the

youngest director in the history of the CIA.

Six is tasked with eliminating a target but

it turns out that target is a fellow “Sierra,”

only of a different number.

After a brutal fight scene that is beautifully

styled and directed by Anthony and

Joe Russo, the soon-to-be felled quasi-agent

starts spilling a few secrets about the

newest head of the CIA. Six is unbelieving

of his claims at first, but a flash drive hidden

within a medallion shows his foe was

actually telling the truth.

Knowing his time on this planet is now

limited — or more limited, given his line of

work — he jets off around the world to try to

deliver this vital piece of jewelry to the safe

hands of his allies. Of course, this challenging

task is made even more arduous when

Six discovers that a sadistic former agent

turned mercenary named Lloyd Hansen

(Chris Evans) has put a $50 million bounty

on his head and called in just about every

wetwork team in the world to take him

down.

The story in “The Gray Man,” which is

adapted from a series of spy novels from

Mark Greaney, comes across as a little convoluted

but what makes it engaging to

watch despite the deficiencies is the acting

strength of Gosling and the apparent great

time the secondary actors are having, especially

Evans. With a sinister mustache that

is deemed a “Trash Stache” by Six, he

chews the scenery in a way that would

make every classic action movie villain

proud.

And that is really what makes this film

work, most of the time that is. “The Gray

Man” is not a dour film or one that takes

itself too seriously; it rolls out bad puns

and quips with frenzied frequency. While it

does employ the use of more high-grade

computer effects than its throwback predecessors

— it can come off as a little slick and

stylized — the spirit of those bygone flicks

are coursing throughout this movie. While

those films and this film may not be for

everyone, it should be appreciated and

watched by those of us who sadly and inexplicably

miss the cinematic action legends

of the past.
