Hundreds of people throughout the

region came out to the Town Center Park

in Grove City on Aug. 6 to experience

and enjoy EcoFest, an annual summertime

event that promotes healthier living

and the importance of preserving the

environment. Among the dozens of local

agencies, businesses, and organizations

educating and entertaining the

masses were the Gardens at Gantz Park

volunteers who were giving away free

herbs and plants and sharing their

expertise on the benefits of backyard

gardening. Here, volunteer Mary Ann

Core (top) lists the variety of herbs and

plants that are harmoniously living

together in this space-saving pod. In

addition to sparking ideas for budding

gardeners, this pod also served as an

educational piece for children at the

event as it teaches them how to tell time

via the location of the herbs and plants.

Both the placement of the herbs and

plants within the pod and the sticky

notes demonstrating the time on a clock

were created by volunteer Lisa Feldman.

with the Southwest Franklin County

Historical Society, gives a few pointers

to Madison Lallathin, 7, as she bravely

attempts to walk using wooden stilts

during the event. Hines said these items

were used in the 1700s as a way to teach

children coordination.

A colony of bats

closes preschool

By Andrea Cordle

Grove City Editor

Families in Grove City will have to find

alternative preschool plans if their child

was enrolled in the city’s RecSchool. The

large barn at Gantz Park, where the city

holds RecSchool classes as well as other

community events, will be closed for the

foreseeable future because a bat colony has

taken up residence in the structure.

According to William Vedra, the city’s

deputy city administrator, officials found

out about the colony a few weeks ago after

a facility maintenance employee found bat

droppings. Once the droppings were

reported, city officials called an exterminator

and had a consultant look at the building.

The exterminator found evidence of

bat bugs inside the structure. Bat bugs are

a parasite that feed on bats and look like

bed bugs. The consultant came to the park

in the evening and verified that a bat

colony was living inside the structure.

At its regular meeting on Aug. 9, village council unanimously

approved a number of legislative items that would

allow popular recreational programs to be established

within the facility.

The first item that was approved by the council was a

resolution for the village to be able to enter into a one-year

agreement with Mrs. Nikee Swimming Stars LLC

to oversee the aquatics programming.

Recently founded by long-time instructors Ben

Fox and Nikee Swanson, the organization aims to

provide a variety of services that will extend far

beyond the length of the pool.

“We don’t just want to be a place where people

come to swim,” said Fox. “Obviously, we want people

to come out and swim, but we also want to be

able to teach the community skills that they can

take with them and apply to their lives outside of

the building.”

According to Fox, he and his partner intend to

establish training courses for those who wish to

learn cardiopulmonary resuscitation and basic first

aid, while also establishing courses for those looking

to be certified babysitters or lifeguards.

“Learning CPR is an incredibly important skill

to have,” said Fox, who partners with the American

Red Cross to provide training programs across the

region. “Not only do we want all of the staff who

work in this facility to know how to do CPR and

basic first aid, we also want to open this to all of the

members and possibly even non-members who just

want to have that knowledge.”

Fox said because they are still creating the

aquatics programming for the community center,

they do not have official dates for when the courses

will take place. However, he added everyone

should keep it in the back of their minds that they

will be offered in the village soon.

In addition to those skill-based courses, the staff

with Mrs. Nikee Swimming Stars will also offer

traditional swim lessons for all age groups, and

they will also provide private lessons for people

with special needs.

Fox said his specialty is teaching children and

adults with physical disabilities and/or autism

their way around the pool — he also served as a special

needs educator with the Columbus City

Schools for many years - and he wants to continue

to offer adaptive programming at this community

center as well.

“A swimming pool should be a place where

everyone can have fun, where everyone feels like

they belong,” he said. “We don’t want to make anyone

feel left out and we will take steps to make

sure no one feels as if they do not belong.”

Although the organization

will run the aquatics

programming, they will

have to share aquatic space

with the Central Crossing

High School swim team

prior to and during their

regular season. Fox said he

does not foresee too much

conflict with scheduled programming.

“We may have to work

around each other, but I

think we can find a solution

that benefits us all.”

Mrs. Nikee Swimming

Stars also intends to host

water aerobic classes, synchronized

swimming

lessons, and scuba diving courses, if desired.

“Much of our programming will be based on what the

community wants,” he said. “If they want something different,

we will try to find a way to accommodate their interests.”

Fox said they are looking to start aquatics programming

at the beginning of September, pending contract

approval by the village law director.

“We can’t wait to get in there and get this community

back into the pool,” he said.

The second item that was approved by the council was

a motion allowing the village to enter into a one-year

agreement with Tivity Health to oversee the Silver

Sneakers program within the facility.

Silver Sneakers is the nation’s leading exercise program

designed exclusively for seniors and those with physical

disabilities. In addition to offering a variety of physical

activity programs, including therapeutic aquatics programming,

it also has an element of socially-oriented programming

for added mental wellness.

Councilwoman Deborah Larkins-Jackson said when the

Silver Sneakers program was managed by the YMCA of

Central Ohio at the facility years ago, they had the highest

volume of members in the region.

“We always had a big number of participants in Silver

Sneakers at the center,” she said during the meeting.

Mayor Joseph Barnes Sr. said he believes that volume

could be even higher if the phone calls he has recently been

fielding are an indication of interest.

“I have seniors calling from Grove City, Harrisburg, the

west side, down south, and in Canal Winchester and

Lockbourne asking when we’re getting this program back,”

he said.

With the motion that was passed, officials are hopeful

the program will be back at the start of September.

“I don’t want to make any guarantees because there are

still a lot of moving parts going,” said Barnes, “but I do

know we are on our way to bringing recreational programming

back to the community center.”

Another piece that is still being worked out are the community

center hours and the membership fees. However,

as of press time, the plan is for the facility to be open starting

next month from Monday through Friday from 7 a.m.

to 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.; and on Saturday from 9

a.m. to 1 p.m. During the weekday, senior citizens would

be able to access the facility during the morning, while

afternoon times would be made available for after-school

recreation. Non-students would also be able to access the

facility during the 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. hours.

Barnes said they are still working on programming for

non-seniors and non-students — ideally between 11 a.m.

and 3 p.m. — but plans have not been finalized yet. Fox said

he would like for the aquatics facility to be open from 12

p.m. to 7 p.m. but added it could be opened earlier if they

are able to hire someone to oversee morning aquatic activities.

The fee schedule is slated to be $25 for all seniors and

young adults who reside in the village; $30 for young

adults who do not reside in the village; $15 for non-resident

youth; and $10 for youth who live in the village. Fox

said he would like to explore the option of day-passes for

non-members to access the pool but added that decision

will be up to the village and the center’s advisory committee.

There could also be additional fees for members to

access the pool, but officials say that is “an evolving piece”

that has yet to be determined.

Questions regarding aquatics programming can be sent

to Ben Fox at Fox.512@osu.edu.

Questions regarding all other recreational programming

can be sent to the village administration at urbancrest@sbcglobal.net

or by calling 614-875-1279. The village

is currently working on setting up a phone number, email

address and website for the community center.

BAT COLONY

Continued from page 1

Natural Resources (ODNR), a colony can

include hundreds of bats.

“We can’t have kids in that building,”

said Vedra.

The city has hired a company that will

remove the roof from the structure, as well

as some siding as they think the bats may

also be in the walls.

“We are now allowed to promote their

relocation,” said Vedra.

According to ODNR, all species of bat in

the state are protected and cannot be

intentionally harmed. To protect flightless

bat pups, it is against the law to perform

an exclusion between May 16 and July 31

if there are 15 or more bats inside of a

structure. Exclusion devices, like attached

netting, allow the bats to safely exit but it

keeps them from getting back inside.

Vedra said once the bats have been

cleared from the building, city leaders will

be able to go inside and assess the damage.

“The damage could be extensive,” said

Vedra.

According to the deputy city administrator,

they will likely have to remove the dry

wall and complete major repairs before

reopening to the public.

“We don’t have a good picture right now,

but we could have to restore the building,”

said Vedra.

The roof will be removed in the coming

days.

“We won’t know the full cost or the

extent of the damage for a while,” said

Vedra.

ODNR states that bats are insectivores,

meaning they eat insects. They are usually

able to exist near human habitats without

people knowing. They should be removed

from homes and structures where there is

human activity due to potential health concerns

for humans.

City officials hope the bats will leave the

barn and find a home in the trees or wooded

areas.

RecSchool, based in Gantz Park, uses

nature-based activities to encourage learning

in children ages 3-4. It is operated by

the Grove City Parks and Recreation

Department and runs from September

through May.

According to Vedra, RecSchool can

accommodate approximately 110 children.

His own grandson was enrolled in the program.

“It’s disappointing,” said Vedra referring

to the closing of the preschool. “We are

working to come up with alternatives.”

He said those alternatives take time

and could involve relicensing.

The city has already notified the families

that were enrolled in RecSchool of the

closure and provided a list of 13 other

preschools in the area.

On July 29, 2022, Grove City Police

were dispatched to the 3100 block of

Summer Glen Drive on a report of

Grove City honors Purple Heart recipients

Messenger photos by Dedra Cordle

The city of Grove City held its annual observance of National Purple Heart Day from

Aug. 5 to Aug. 9 at the Purple Heart Memorial Walk in Henceroth Park. Throughout

those five days, dozens of residents and non-residents alike walked the path of heroes

as they remembered the men and women who were wounded or killed in combat while

serving in the United States Armed Forces. On Friday morning, the city held a special

ceremony to pay homage to the families of the fallen and to honor the area’s living

recipients of the Purple Heart Medal. Among those wounded veterans who received

recognition at the event were Bernie Ryznar, John Flinn, Mikel Rhodes, Bill Purdy, John

Kruetzkamp, and Eldon Erlembach (pictured from left to right in the second row) and

Korean War veteran John Kelly (seated in front). Mayor Richard “Ike” Stage and the ceremony’s

attendees thanked them for their service and sacrifice.

Brent Casey, the grandson of the late Medal of Honor and Purple Heart recipient

Hershel “Woody” Williams, stands before the tree that was planted in his grandfather’s

honor alongside Mayor Stage, shown holding Williams’ medal. Williams was considered

a friend of the city and was instrumental in the creation of the city’s Gold Star

Family Memorial Monument. The World War II veteran and United States Marine Corps

Reserve warrant officer died on June 29, 2022. More photos can be found at columbusmessenger.com.

Township seeks funding for road work

By Dedra Cordle

Staff Writer

The Ohio Public Works Commission

recently announced it would be accepting

funding requests for road and infrastructure

improvements through two of its most

popular programs — the state capital

improvement program and the local transportation

improvement program. Among

the hundreds of municipalities throughout

the state who will be vying for funds

include Jackson Township.

At its meeting in early August, the

board of trustees gave its approval for the

administrator to request funding through

the local transportation improvement project

to repair two of its most well-traveled,

and well-worn, roads.

According to Township Administrator

Shane Farnsworth, the township will go

after “any available funds” to resurface

Brown Road and Dyer Road and also make

alignment adjustments to its intersection.

He said he feels relatively confident that

this funding request will be approved by

the commission in some capacity.

“We have been working with the

Franklin County Engineer’s Office on this

application and we both feel this is a really

good project based upon the traffic counts,

based upon the area it serves, based upon

the types of vehicles it serves, and the

types of land uses (along the road),” said

Farnsworth. “It is a really good opportunity

for us to go after and hopefully be really

competitive in this grant application.”

One of the primary issues with Brown

and Dyer Roads is its condition, which was

described by Farnsworth as in a constant

need for repair.

“Our road crew continues to go out there

and do a lot of repairs every month just to

maintain a level of safety for our residents

and for the people that are using that

area,” he said.

Exacerbating the condition of the roads

is the fact that they are used as cutthroughs

when traffic has built up along

the surrounding thoroughfares, explained

Farnsworth.

“If you have gone down that area —

whenever anything is happening to Frank

Road, Jackson Pike, or to Gantz Road or

Home Road — Dyer Road and Brown Road

get hit a lot (and have to bear that traffic

load),” he said.

He mentioned that those roads were not

built with so much traffic in mind but

acknowledged the volume along those roadways

will likely remain high due to the

area it serves and the way the area is being

built up.

“We still have to make sure these roads

are as safe as possible for whoever lives in

that area and for whoever travels on it,” he

said.

In Entertainment

Sink your teeth into “Day Shift”

While the mining of stories in the well-worn 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 daughter Paige (Zion Broadnax). On his

resume — one he freely admits should be updated and

sent out to more reputable businesses — he is a longserving

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

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.

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”

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 notso-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 well-played 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 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.

How to

Write an Ad

that Sells

1. Use a KEYWORD.This immediately tells the reader exactly what

it is you have to sell.

2. Make your description CLEAR and FACTUAL. State the year,

make, model, color, size, and tell what condition the item is. Also

state the special features.

3. State the PRICE. Successful Classified advertisers have learned

that the price in an ad helps increase the chances for results.

4. If there’s a genuine sense of URGENCY, say so. The words

“We’re Moving” or “Must Sell Fast” suggests that readers respond

immediately.

5. Include your PHONE NUMBER. Classifieds get results fast and

often generate immediate sales. If you cannot be available to answer

the phone at all times, be sure to specify calling times such as

“AFTER 6 PM” or “BEFORE 11 AM.”

If you need assistance, ask one of our

friendly AD-VISORS to help you word your ad!
