A fun ‘day

out’ on the

Hilltop

Messenger photos by Dedra Cordle

The South Central Hilltop Block Watch

hosted its 17th annual National Night

Out Neighborhood Festival on Aug. 13.

Although the event took place during the

day – and more than a week after the

national movement is typically held –

organizers say they felt fortunate that it

was able to come to pass this year. “Our

celebration is held at Burroughs Park

and the area was still undergoing its

massive makeover on Aug. 2,” said Lisa

Boggs. “We were worried that it would

have to be canceled outright but the timing

could not have been better because

we were able to host our celebration of

the event that brings people together in

conjunction with celebrating the reopening

of the park that also brings people

together.” Doing their part to “bring people

together” are Chovie and James

Gentzel, animal and human ambassadors

from the Columbus Zoo and

Aquarium. Shown here (top right) getting

Footed Penguin are westside residents

Andrea Douglass and her daughter,

Olivia, 1. Gentzel, a programs specialist

at the zoo, said their mobile unit also

brought an armadillo, an anteater, a

marine toad, a screech owl, and a boa

constrictor. He said they often bring

more animals to the event than they

showcase because some “get fussy”

and don’t want to engage with the public.

Clearly, Chovie had no issues with

getting attention from an adoring crowd.

Taking it to

the streets

By Christine Bryant

Staff Writer

Sandy Bonneville has a motto by which

she lives: From the pew, to the pavement,

to the people.

“The church doesn’t just exist inside its

doors,” she says.

As Bonneville walks the streets of the

Hilltop and Franklinton areas, she holds

that motto close. It’s been an inspiration

for her as director of the Take it to the

Streets ministry, an initiative that takes

meals and basic needs directly to the

streets and into the hands of the needy

and unsheltered.

“The Hilltop/Franklinton area is a quilt of poverty,” she

said. “Each patch represents a situation of poverty such as

gentrification, loss of jobs, the pandemic, addiction, crime,

inflation and more.”

As director of the ministry, which is part of the St.

Aloysius Community Outreach, Bonneville and the program’s

volunteers ensure that individuals living on the

streets have access to basic needs.

“So many folks on the streets, tucked away in storefronts,

corners or abandoned doorways - hungry, destitute,

addicted, suffering from the elements, various trauma,

mental illness, unsheltered, living in their cars or seeking

shelter,” she said. “Many people see these folks everyday.

Yet these folks remain invisible to many.”

A beacon of hope on the Hilltop for more than

100 years, St. Aloysius Church offers several community

outreach programs.

“If one looks up and down West Broad Street,

they’ll see the bell tower steeple of St. Al’s standing

directly on the top of the hill,” Bonneville said. “St.

Al’s served as a center of relief during the Great

Flood of 1913 and again as a center of relief in 1959

when the Scioto River flooded.”

For nearly half a century, the church has hosted

an annual free community Thanksgiving Day dinner

that Bonneville has directed for the past 24

years. The church has also hosted community

monthly dinners, summer cookouts, and free lunch

and grocery giveaways through two outreaches:

Saints Alive, a homeless advocacy

ministry and St. Aloysius Community

Outreach.

Once or twice a week, Bonneville and

about six other volunteers take to the

streets to help those who aren’t able to

attend the church’s outreach events.

“Three of us go at a time bringing a full

and healthy meal, blankets, toiletries,

hygiene products, care bags and various

essentials,” she said. “We’ve brought other

items requested - socks, shoes, tarps - and

we try our best to obtain other items needed.”

Bonneville says items like shampoo,

deodorant, clean towels, socks and personal

care items are greatly appreciated.

“We receive various support from the

church, food bank and personal donations,”

she said. “We fill my large SUV to the brim

and stay out until everything has been

given away, which is usually about one to

two hours.”

The ministry serves about 75 men and

women weekly, though the need increases

each week, Bonneville says. Volunteers

drive up and down Sullivant Avenue and

West Broad Street, as well as some other

spots on side streets, in alleys and in secluded

areas.

“We usually meet up with many of the

same people and each week we encounter

more friends in need,” she said. “And some

we never meet again.”

Volunteers take the time to talk to individuals

when possible to learn more about

their situations and needs.

A gentle, soft-spoken man caring for his

diabetic father, both living in a tent. A 53-

year-old woman who has been on the streets

for a year and now has cancer, with a male companion

caring for her. An older man who told

Bonneville he never thought he’d be homeless and

was trying to get across town to the VA hospital. A

woman looking through a garbage bag for something

to eat.

“So many stories,” Bonneville said. “So much

sadness, yet so much inspiration. The resilience,

fortitude and gratitude we encounter through serving

these men and women can teach us a lesson in

humility.”

Even though many of the individuals Bonneville

comes across have little, they are the first to share

what they do have, she says.

“They will never take more than they need,” she

said.

Yet despite being surrounded by sadness, there

is inspiration, Bonneville says.

“So we go out again,” she said. “When we take the time

to notice, to see not just with our eyes but with our hearts

and refrain from judging others, and listen to the stories

that brought these men and women to the streets, then

perhaps hopefully we’ll understand and truly see that they

are children of God,” she said.

The goal, Bonneville says, is to lift people up, one meal

and one smile at a time, and to serve all with respect and

dignity.

“Then maybe we’ll understand that we all have needs,”

she said. “We all just want to know someone cares for us,

and that a smile can bring light in others’ shadows.”

Township Focus

Safety and security issues

discussed in Prairie Township

By Amanda Ensinger

Staff Writer

With many kids starting school, a

Prairie Township resident questioned the

board about actions they are taking to protect

students as they cross busy streets.

“Are there any plans of walkways to

help kids get to and from school?” asked

resident Bob Voss at a recent board meeting.

For years, Voss has been requesting

that the township create walkways to protect

students. He worries there are a lack

of sidewalks and there are dangerous

crossings in several neighborhoods.

Prairie Township Administrator James

Jewell said the township is seeking grant

funding that could be used on sidewalk

projects.

“Grant funding has certain restrictions

to be applied to certain things,” Jewell

said. “This does not come from our normal

operating tax dollars.”

Also at the meeting, residents asked the

board about the increased homeless population

in the area.

“What is being done about homeless

people in the township? I have seen people

living in their cars,” said resident Debra

Kurtz. “Are we providing low-income housing?”

Residents added that there are numerous

homeless people on Hilton Avenue and

West Broad Street.

Township officials are aware of the

increase in homelessness and they have

reached out to advocates for the homeless.

They also are working with the

Community Shelter Board to help these

individuals.

“We are going to see what can be done,”

Jewell said.

In other news, Josh Roth, economic

development manager with COTA, and

John Gardocki, transit planner with

MORPC, shared information on the proposed

BRT corridor project within the

township.

“This will allow for more employment

options and transportation to places like

Amazon and Intel,” said trustee Rod

Pritchard. “We need to guarantee transportation

to workplaces. The county connections,

which are services of the COTA

connection, will allow West Broad to

accommodate the project with the intention

to help gain access to West Jefferson

as well.”

Residents asked if there would be a stop

on Hubbard.

“Not at this time,” replied Gardocki,

adding that they were looking at other

options within the township.”

Residents questioned why a trolley service

couldn’t be created. Gardocki said they

would have to dedicate lanes for a trolley to

operate and buses are a more affordable

option.

A Call for Kindness

Throughout the weekend of Aug. 13, dozens of residents across the westside

came out to assist artist Sarah Hout as she created a large sunflower mural on the

west facing wall at 2338 West Broad St. Hout, a Columbus-based artist who was

recently selected to be the designer of the 2022 Hilltop Art Collective’s public art

installation, which is coincidentally located on the opposite wall – was undertaking

this beautification project as a part of Verizon’s national campaign, A Call for

Kindness. She said she chose to create a wall full of sunflowers because she feels

they are the “epitome of happiness.” Local volunteers helped Hout color block the

background: she finished the flower detailing a few days later.

Franklin Township plans for levy after police layoffs

By Amanda Ensinger

Staff Writer

Franklin Township’s police department

continues to fight increased crime in the

area despite having less staff. Recently, the

board of trustees approved laying off three

part-time officers.

The trustees made the decision to lay off

the officers after a police levy failed for the

third time.

The current five-year timed levy the

township has is set to expire in December

and residents have three separate times

rejected permanent levies for the department.

The department also has two other

permanent levies it collects from township

taxpayers. Those two levies bring in

approximately $700,000 a year.

Before the levy failed, the department

was operating 24 hours a day with 10 fulltime

and three part-time officers.

Currently, the department is running two

shifts and only responding to emergency

calls.

“There were 51 runs handled by the

(Franklin County) sheriff’s office in the last

two weeks,” said Franklin Township Police

Chief Byron Smith.

The board plans to once again ask voters

to approve a 7.3-mill permanent levy.

“I am upset that we have to layoff officers

and am asking everyone to band

together to get support for the upcoming

levy,” said Franklin Township Trustee

Ralph Horn said. “I want the police department

to have the best they can possibly

have.”

In other news, despite the cuts to staff,

three officers were recently recognized for

going above and beyond in the line of duty.

The trustees awarded officers Tim Myers,

Kevin Distelhorst, and David Pollack with

the award of merit for dissolving a situation

that involved a person waving a

machete.

Cemetery and park planning discussed in Prairie Township

By Amanda Ensinger

Staff Writer

At a recent Prairie Township meeting,

officials discussed budgeting needs for the

rest of the year and into 2023.

Among the items discussed was a need

for a new cemetery in the township.

“Alton Cemetery is almost completely

sold out and there is room at Galloway

Cemetery but that could quickly fill when

Alton sells out,” said Assistant Township

Administrator Dave McAninch. “We need

to do this sooner rather than later. Five

acres of land lasted 25 years, 20 to 30 acres

would last more than 20 or 30 years.”

Other expenses needed include replacing

and adding park equipment, however

according to McAninch, many of the township

parks are in good shape.

“The Hubbard/Dellinger Park conceptual

planning has started and a public meeting

for community input would be helpful,”

he said.

The Galloway Sports Complex is in

phase three of completion. This phase

includes installing pickleball courts and a

dog area.

“We can look into more grants,”

McAninch said. “The next phases are $1

million each, plus additional items, including

trees and parking lot lights.”

The trustees agreed they need to explore

more grant funding.

McAninch also said the township’s 2014

pickup truck needs replaced and could possibly

go to the fire department to be used as

a grass fighter.

The department would also like to see

curb, gutter and sidewalks in Little Farms

and Rome Heights neighborhoods. Grant

funding would be needed, and leadership is

going to look into funding through OPWC

and MORPC.

Also at the meeting, Prairie Township

Administrator James Jewell gave an

update on ways the township could obtain

funding.

“MORPC is hiring a full-time grant

writer. That could help us,” he said.

Jewell added that the township has outgrown

its current facilities.

“We may look into renovating the

garage for the sheriff’s office and possibly

utilizing that space,” he said.

Back-to-school tips from SWACO

According to a 2021 National Retail Foundation

(NRF) back-to-school shopping survey, American families

can spend an average of $850 on back-to-school

supplies. Regardless of your income, that can be

painful to your pocket.

If you’re on a tight budget, finding extra money for

backpacks, lunch boxes, and laptops can be stressful.

SWACO has some tips to help make back-to-school

greener and more affordable.

Reuse Items

•While it can be a thrill to buy new supplies at the

start of each school year, it’s better for your wallet and

the environment to reuse what you already have on

hand. Before heading to the store, inventory last year’s

supplies to see what is still in good working condition,

versus buying everything new.

•Kids grow fast, so it’s not always possible to continue

to wear last year’s school clothes or reuse sports

equipment. Before buying new, check local secondhand

stores for greener (and cheaper) options. For families

who find themselves in need this year, organizations

like Charity Newsies provide clothes and supplies free

of charge.

•If you have to buy new, look for sustainable school

supplies, like notebooks made with recycled paper or

plantable pencils. And remember to recycle any cardboard

packaging (like shoe boxes) or paper in a curbside

or drop-off recycling container.

•Consider buying used tech (computers, laptops,

Free lunch at UHMC

The United Hilltop Methodist Church will host a

community events

tablets) from retailers that sell used or refurbished

equipment. If you’d like to donate your old tech, learn

more about SWACO’s E-Waste Diversion program at

swaco.org.

Sustainable Lunches

•Ditch the brown paper bags and pack lunch in a

reuseable lunch box along with a BPA-free water bottle

and reusable or biodegradable utensils.

•We know kids love their snacks, but to reduce

packaging waste, avoid pre-packaged foods and opt for

whole foods instead, like fruits, vegetables, legumes,

nuts, whole grains, meat, fish and eggs.

•Encourage your child to bring home leftover food.

Food scraps like apple cores and banana peels can be

brought back home to be composted, and uneaten food

can be reused for dinner or tomorrow’s lunch.

Hit the Road

•If you live close enough to school, consider walking

or biking. For those who may be too young to go on

their own, consider organizing a “walkpool” with rotating

parent chaperones for a group of kids each week.

•For those who live further out and can’t take the

bus, organize a group of families to participate in a

neighborhood carpool, alternating on a regular basis.

Following these simple recommendations will support

a safer and more environmentally friendly start to

the school year.

For more information, visit swaco.org.

Scam Warning from Columbus PU

Columbus Public Utilities is warning customers about a new

round of scams involving text messages that appear to be coming

from the department demanding payment but are fraudulent.

Customers are advised that the city’s utility department never

demands payment by calling, texting, or knocking on doors. If

anyone is posing as a department employee trying to collect payment

through these methods it is fraud.

If paying a bill online, Columbus Public Utilities water, sewer,

stormwater and city power customers should only pay from the

secure Customer Portal link from the home web page of

https://columbus.gov/utilities or call 800-824-2375 to pay by

phone. For a complete list of bill payment options, visit the website.

If a resident has made a service-related appointment with

the department, residents should always request to see the cityissued

identification badge, and also check to see that the worker

is in a city uniform and driving a marked city vehicle.

Residents who have been victims of such fraud should report it

to the Columbus Division of Police at 614-645-4545 or online, and

if outside Columbus to their local law enforcement agency. Scams

should also be reported to the Ohio Attorney General’s Office at

www.ohioattorneygeneral.gov. For questions about your

Columbus utility bill, call 614-645-8276 or email

UtilityLeadRep@columbus.gov.

Correction

In the Aug. 7 edition of the Westside Messenger, the article

titled “Trustees place home rule measure on November ballot”

included incorrect information. The article states that after an

executive session, the Franklin Township board voted to add a

limited home rule measure to the November ballot. According to

Steve Mazer, the township’s administrator, the trustees did not

vote on this measure but were discussing options. Due to the

incorrect information in the article, the headline was also incorrect.

The Messenger apologizes for the error.

In Entertainment

Viewers can sink their teeth into “Day Shift”

While the mining of stories in the wellworn

book on vampiric lore has never truly

gone out of style within the entertainment

industry, there has been a shift in recent

years to make these creatures of darkness

more humorous, and thus more palatable,

to the masses. However, there comes a time

when the fan of the vampire wishes to see

something that is edgier than these undead

lightweights, but still wants the offering to

maintain an overall sense of dangerous and

mischievous fun.

Enter “Day Shift,” a new Netflix original

that attempts to bring back a more serious

type of vampire, but not one that is so serious

that it makes you dream of closing a lid

on your still breathing body just to escape

the banality (see, or rather don’t see, “30

Days of Night”). In this film, the majority of

the vampires rarely speak; instead, they

use their rapidly contorting bodies to inflict

harm, horror, and a healthy dose of humor

on the audience and on those who dare try

to kill them in this bizarrely entertaining

new universe.

Leading the charge on those who dare

try to kill them is Bud Jablonski (Jamie

Foxx), a hard-working guy who just wants

to provide a better life for his 8-year-old

Westside

daughter Paige (Zion Broadnax). On his

resume — one he freely admits should be

updated and sent out to more reputable

businesses — he is a long-serving and committed

cleaner of swimming pools in the

San Fernando Valley but it turns out this

is just a front to hide his primary source of

income: hunting and killing the vampires

who reside in his beloved city.

In this world, killing vampires is a business

— slayers earn cash by selling the

fangs of the vamps they slaughter. And

although Bud tends to kill a lot of them, his

wallet and his savings are not displaying

his financial rewards. This lack is due to

the revoking of his membership in the

international vampire hunting union and

the low-ball figures he gets from black market

dealers.

Upon finding out that his ex-wife plans

to relocate to Florida with their daughter

in order to save money, Bud knows that the

only thing that he can do to keep them in

California is to try to get his union job back

and kill a bunch of vampires in the process

— but by the book this time. Although Bud

figures the latter will not pose an issue, he

soon discovers that there are human and

not-so-human complications at play on his

mission to earn money for fangs. The

human complication comes in the form of

Seth (Dave Franco), a quasi-babysitter

from the union who is meant to oversee his

work and write down all of the code violations,

and the not-so-human complication

comes in the form of Audrey San Fernando

(Karla Souza), a feared vampiress who is

not at all impressed with Bud’s slaughtering

of her kin and the bloody mess he

leaves behind in his wake.

Although it is hard to find originality

within the vampire genre — the undead

creatures of the night have been around for

more than a century and there have been

just as many interpretations in books, film

and television shows throughout — this film

feels familiar yet creatively fresh, and that

is due in large part to the smart script by

Tyler Tice and Shay Hatten that is so wellplayed

by Foxx and Franco.

I have to admit that I wasn’t really feeling

this movie until the 30 minute mark

when Bud and Seth meet for the first time.

While impressed with the fight choreography

that takes place prior to this event, the

human action was lagging until these two

started butting heads and jockeying to see

Pet Corner

Pets of the week

Nakita and her brother

came into rescue

after their human

mom passed away.

They spent much

time mourning her

loss. Nakita is still

very shy, but making

progress in her foster

home. She would do

best in a quiet home with someone patient

enough to earn her trust, but in due time she’ll

be your best friend. Contact Colony Cats if

you’d like to meet Nakita.

FYI: colonycats.org

Asher was surrendered

to rescue after

his family experienced

some medical

issues and couldn’t

care for him. He is at

the Colony Cats

adoption center looking

for a family. Asher

does have some

health issues. He is very susceptible to upper

respiratory infections and has a chronic runny

nose. He also needs a consistent diet to help

with skin issues. This guy is so friendly and

affectionate though that you won’t care about

those things.

who could chew the

most scenery.

Though this film

likely could have

stood on its own

with this clever

script, it is these two

who really made it

so effortlessly entertaining.

While this film doesn’t always stick the

landing or pull off plot beats the way it

wants to, “Day Shift” is a terrific combination

of humor, ferocity, and fun. And

although it won’t be for every fan of the

vampire, I think it will be a good time for

those looking to sink their teeth into a

fresh action horror that packs a bit of a

punch.

Grade: C+

Dedra Cordle is a Messenger staff writer

and columnist.

These furry friends are available

for adoption at local rescues and

shelters

Ivy Rose is a shy girl

who is looking for

someone with a quiet

home and the

patience to give her

the time she needs to

adjust. Ivy is not a lap

cat but can be affectionate

and likes to be

near you. She gets

along with other cats and could be good with

older children who would understand her shyness.

Ivy Rose needs a home of her very own

to flourish in, to love a family to her full potential.

Adopt her from Friends for Life Animal

Haven.

Wilson is such a

cutie. He loves getting

attention and is in

search of someone

who will give him all

the love and belly

rubs he deserves. He

would do best as your

only furry friend and

must meet everyone

living in his forever home prior to adoption.

Come meet this handsome man today at the

county shelter.
