Steady employment

numbers in SWCS

By Dedra Cordle

Staff Writer

South-Western City School officials say

that while the district is still looking to

hire additional employees to fill a variety

of positions, the overall employment numbers

are stable and there will not be a negative

impact to the daily operations as a

new school year gets underway.

According to Dr. Susan Hayward, the

assistant superintendent of personnel, the

district has approximately 2,700 employees,

a majority of which are certificated

staff members.

The certificated staff consists of teachers,

guidance counselors, nurses, psychologists,

and tutors. Hayward said at the Aug.

22 board of education meeting that these

employment numbers will allow the district

to efficiently run its normal opera-

WNA helps the Hilltop RISE

At the Westgate community meeting on

Aug. 30, the Westgate Neighbors

Association (WNA) presented a check for

$1,000 to Hilltop RISE.

“One of the WNA’s missions has been to

encourage the development and retention

of businesses that benefit the community,”

said Michael Blake, president of the

Westgate Neighbors Association. “As such,

a few years ago, we created a microgrant

program for area small businesses.

However, as a civic association, we have

been unable to fully leverage its potential.

When we learned about Hilltop RISE, with

their goal to drive economic development

along our neighborhood’s commercial corridors,

our board voted unanimously to

donate the microgrant funds to them.”

During the meeting, Hilltop RISE chairwoman

Betty Jaynes presented an

overview of the community development

corporation’s goals and strategies. She also

provided an update about several projects

along West Broad Street.

“We are committed to engaging the community.”

said Jaynes.

The West Broad Street and Sullivant

Avenue corridors offer more than 200 acres

of space ready to be developed, including

mixed-use buildings ready for revitalization.

The community development corporation’s first

task is to recruit a full-time executive director who will

work with the city of Columbus, Franklin County,

COTA, as well as stakeholders on The Hilltop, to promote

economic development along those commercial

corridors.

“This check represents community helping community.

Together we are stronger and we look forward to

working with the WNA and other community groups to

tions.

“We will be fully staffed with our certificated staff,”

she said, noting that there are roughly 1,600 certificated

employees in the district.

Where the district is running into some trouble is

with the classified employees, which consists of aides,

bus drivers, cooks, interpreters, mechanics and school

office workers, to name a few.

Hayward said the district is still “working toward

being fully staffed” with its classified positions, but

added their overall numbers are nearly 1,000 strong.

Of particular concern to her regarding employment

is the number of substitute teachers the district has on

hand. Although she says the district is in better shape

at the start of this year in comparison to last year, they

are still having difficulties getting commitments for

long-term substitute teaching positions.

“Long-term substitute teachers have additional

responsibilities such as making lesson plans, grading

and overseeing Parent Teacher Conferences,” she said.

In order to attract and retain long-term substitute

teachers, Hayward requested their pay be increased

from $145 per day to $155 per day. She also requested

that the district’s retirees who come back to sub longterm

be paid $165 per day, an increase of $10 from the

current standard.

Board member Lee Schreiner said he was in favor of

those requests, adding that their work is necessary.

The board did not have to move on that item at the

meeting; instead, Superintendent Dr. Bill Wise said it

can be grandfathered into the pay increase that was

approved last year.

He said he hopes this action can help the district

recruit for this important role, especially since many of

the substitutes in their substitute teaching pool turned

down requests to move into the long-term position last

year.

“Substitutes are a vital part of our ability to run a

district so we want to value that and also recognize the

job market that folks are in as well as the extra work

these long-term subs take on.”

Safety issues addressed in Prairie

By Amanda Ensinger

Staff Writer

The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office

executed Operation Unity in Prairie

Township.

“They were able to execute over 20

arrests; six being for felony offenses,” said

Deputy Burton Haren at a recent Prairie

Township board meeting. “About 40 grams

of illegal drugs were seized, as well as one

illegal firearm.”

The deputy also reminded residents

that the new fireworks law is going into

effect.

“Fireworks are still a violation of the

township noise resolution and can be ticketed

for violating,” Haren said.

Haren said a noise ordinance violation

occurs when an individual can hear the

noise 100 feet from where the noise is coming

from.

“If fireworks can be heard from 100 feet

away, they (the individual) can be cited for

noise,” he said. “The ORC (Ohio Revised

Code) does not supersede the township

ordinance.”

In other news, Prairie Township Fire

Chief Allen Scott asked the board to

approve spending $42,774 to purchase a

new power cot and related accessories for a

new medic.

“By approving this purchase, we will

Staff Writer

lock in the current price and not be

required to pay for the items until the new

vehicle is ready for delivery,” Scott said.

Scott also asked the board to approve

hiring Ohio First Responder Grants to

write a FEMA AFG grant for diesel

exhaust removal systems for each fire station.

“This system would collect and safely

remove diesel exhaust from the station,”

Scott said. “Diesel exhaust has been found

to be a major cause of firefighter related

cancer. Diesel exhaust can also be destructive

to equipment and other items due to

extended exposure.”

The total cost of the project should be no

more than $200,000, with the fire department

being responsible for 5 percent of the

total project cost.

The cost of writing the grant is $2,500.

Scott also asked the board to approve

hiring Ohio First Responder Grants to

write a FEMA AFG grant for a new tanker.

“The current tanker is permanently out

of service due to unrepairable pump

issues,” he said. “The cost of the new vehicle

could be as much as $600,000.”

The fire department would be responsible

for 5 percent of the awarded amount. In

this case, the award will be capped at

$475,000. The fire department’s portion of

the total cost could be $125,000.

The board approved both requests.

A local police department is looking for

ways to resolve conflict without lethal

force.

At a recent Franklin Township meeting,

Police Chief Byron Smith discussed getting

a quote for four 12-gauge shotguns that

shoot bean bags instead of bullets.

“If we can use non-lethal force, it would

be a positive move in today’s climate,”

Smith said. “The quote for four of these is

$2,150. The cost of training has not yet

been determined.”

The board approved a resolution authorizing

the police department to spend up to

$3,000 on the shotguns.

“These are able to display current

he said. “The price for two of them would be

$7,550.”

The board approved spending up to

8,000 on the new signs.

Smith also reported that the department

recently took 1,062 runs on first and

second shift and were not able to respond

to 110 calls.

In other township news, the trustees

The Prairie Township Farmers Market hosted a kid-friendly Last Blast of Summer event

on Aug. 22 at the township’s community center. In addition to the regular vendors at

the farmers market, Bring the Farm to You was on hand to teach children about farm

animals. The farm, located in central Ohio, brings animals to schools, or special events

to give kids an up-close look at the animals. Here, 4-year-old Tate Jester gets a look at

a chick from the farm. The Farmer’s Market is held on Mondays from 4 to 7 p.m. through

Sept. 19.

New commissioners introduced

By Hannah Poling

Staff Writer

There are three new commissioners who

will be taking office at the Westland Area

Commission. As there were only four candidates,

one being current commissioner

and zoning chair Mike McKay, the commission

did not hold its annual election.

Two of the three individuals joining the

commission attended the meeting on Aug.

17.

Karen Lewis has lived in Galloway since

1998. She attended a recreation and parks

meeting and heard that there were openings

on the commission for the upcoming

year.

“I thought it would be a good opportunity

to be in the know,” said Lewis.

David Henderson is currently retired

but a volunteer naturalist at Battelle

Darby Metro Park.

“I have lived on the westside since 1973

and I was born and raised in Columbus,”

Henderson said.

John Daley was unable to attend the

meeting.

After school snacks

Columbus Metropolitan Library (CML)

has once again partnered with Children’s

Hunger Alliance (CHA) to provide afterschool

snacks for children ages 1-18 at several

of its locations including:

• Franklinton Branch: Monday -

Saturday: 3:30 to 4:30 p.m.

• Hilltop Branch: Monday - Friday:

3:15-3:45 p.m. and Saturday: 2:15 - 2:45

p.m.

These locations were selected for the

meal program based on student need. A

typical super-snack provided by Children’s

Hunger Alliance consists of a fruit, vegetable,

protein, grain and milk.

“Food insecurity was a pervasive issue

facing our community well before the pandemic,”

said CML CEO Patrick Losinski.

“Now, with central Ohio reeling from

simultaneous health and economic crises,

our families need our support more than

ever before. We’re grateful for the tremendous

resources and partnership provided

by Children’s Hunger Alliance.”

Judy Mobley, president and CEO of

CHA, said, “We value the continued partnership

with Columbus Metropolitan

Library working with us to provide meals

to children in our community who experience

food insecurity. Together we are making

a difference in the lives of many central

Ohio children each day.”

Founded in 1970, Children’s Hunger

Alliance is a statewide nonprofit organization

dedicated to ending childhood hunger

in Ohio. Through their work, Children’s

Hunger Alliance provides healthy meals to

hungry children, advocates for the welfare

of Ohio’s youngest citizens and teaches

nutrition and physical education to those

they serve.

news and notes

All three new commissioners will take

office on Jan. 1, 2023.

In other news, John Ortli, a consultant

for AECOM, attended the commission

meeting to present a variance request.

AEP is requesting two variances for its

Columbus Southwest Service Center on the

corner of Norton and Alkire roads.

This center will be about 55,000 square

feet. The front of the center will be offices

and the back half will be a warehouse,

loading docks, a maintenance facility, fuel

island and a small storage area. There is

currently a building on the property, built

in the 1960s, which will be demolished.

This building is currently located on

Georgesville Road.

Both variances are regarding the setback

from the road. One variance states

that the back flow cannot be placed in the

200-foot set back from the road. Currently,

the back flow meter enclosure is planned at

133 feet. Also, the requirement for the

parking setback is 25 feet and AEP wants

to reduce that to an eight-foot setback.

The requests were approved 6-0.

City awarded $2 million for

Healthy Homes Program

Mayor Andrew Ginther announced a $2

million federal grant supporting the

Healthy Homes Program, which protects

vulnerable residents from housing-related

hazards while preserving housing affordability

in Columbus. The federal grant was

distributed by the U.S. Department of

Housing and Urban Development, and provides

funding to the city through 2025.

“The Healthy Homes Program connects

our most vulnerable neighbors with the

financial resources they need to keep their

families stably housed,” said Ginther. “By

lowering the cost of essential home repairs

for those who need the most help, we are

empowering our residents to stay safe and

secure in their homes while continuing to

make the Columbus Housing Strategy a

reality for all.”

The Healthy Homes Program supports

Columbus households with incomes at or

below 80 percent of the area median

income (AMI) while giving priority to

homes inhabited by children under the age

of 6, seniors and those with disabilities.

Eligible families can receive on average up

to $7,500 to fix qualifying health and safety

concerns such as mold and moisture, pests,

injury and safety hazards, poor indoor air

quality, carbon monoxide and lead-based

paint.

Funding from the federal grant is

expected to serve more than 150 properties

and educate 8,000 residents on how to keep

their homes safe.

Finding homes for rescued hounds

CHA Animal Shelter has received 10 beagles at its

shelter in Columbus as part of the group of beagles to

be removed from a mass-breeding facility. The

Humane Society of the United States is coordinating

the removal of approximately 4,000 beagles housed at

a facility in Virginia, which bred dogs to be sold to laboratories

for animal experimentation.

The transfer plan was submitted by the

Department of Justice, with the agreement of the

Humane Society of the United States to assume the

responsibility of coordinating placement. The transfer

will take place in stages over several months, and the

dogs will be up for adoption via CHA and other shelters

and rescues.

The beagles have received initial veterinary care

and are scheduled to be spayed at CHA in the coming

days. Once spayed, many will be placed up for adoption

immediately so that they can start the journey of finding

families. While many of the beagles are showing

resilient personalities and are actively seeking out

attention from staff and volunteers, a few are very shy

and will likely spend some time further decompressing

before they are ready for adoption.

“CHA Animal Shelter is grateful to have the opportunity

to partner with the Humane Society of the

United States to help beagles from the breeding facility,”

said CHA Executive Director, Kelsey Smucker.

“Looking into their soulful eyes, it is wonderful to

know that they are no longer destined to be used as

laboratory animals and that they will instead live comfortable

and safe lives with adoptive families.”

The transfer plan comes as a result of a lawsuit filed

against the breeding facility by the Department of

Justice in May, alleging animal welfare act violations.

“It takes a massive network of compassionate,

expert shelters and rescues to make an operation of

this scale possible,” said Lindsay Hamrick, shelter outreach

and engagement director for the Humane

Society of the United States. “We are deeply grateful to

each organization that is stepping up to find these dogs

the loving homes they so deserve.”

Animal Shelter is finding homes for, visit www.chaanimalshelter.org

Although Jeff Baena is not a prolific

director or a well-known screenwriter, his

work thus far in the industry has garnered

him a reputation as someone who is capable

of piercing the hearts of an audience

with eccentric comedies that examine the

meaning of life (2004’s “I Heart

Huckabees”) and also causing the minds of

an audience to go into a state of bewilderment

with eccentric comedies that examine

the meaning of life (2014’s “Life After

Beth”; 2017’s “The Little Hours”; and

2020’s “Horse Girl”).

With a majority of his credits listed

above, one might argue that his earliest

foray was only as successful or as memorable

because it was co-written and directed

by the prolific and well-known David O.

Russell but that is something one has to

push back on, just a little bit. While the end

result of his work can be hit or miss, there

is something about it that just makes you

want to give it a try, especially if you have

built up a tolerance to strange and unusual

movies.

That inquisitiveness about his work is

what brought me to “Spin Me Round,”

another eccentric comedy that examines

the meaning of life. Released on demand

this weekend, the film doesn’t delve as

deeply or spend a lot of time pondering the

question in relation to his prior films, but it

does hit on those existential themes of

“What are we doing here?” and “Why am I

doing what I’m doing?”

Asking herself that question on a near

daily basis is Amber, the central character

played by Alison Brie. Amber is a very

guarded person, one not quite willing to

take a leap of faith, but years before the

story in the movie begins, she did just that

by leaving her financially secure job as a

manager of a popular Italian eatery to open

her own restaurant with her flaky

boyfriend. When the film opens, she is back

at her old position at Tuscan Grove, working

tirelessly to build back her savings

after her restaurant and her relationship

went up into flames (figuratively for the

former, probably literally with the latter).

To acknowledge the “dedication of his

workers,” Tuscan Grove’s CEO Nick

Martucci (a delightfully wacky Alessandro

Nivola) invites Amber and a number of

other managers across the region to attend

an all-expense paid trip to the Tuscan

Grove Institute in Italy where they will be

immersed in “cuisine and culture” while

staying in a lush villa. At first, Amber is

hesitant to attend this lavish affair, but she

is lured by the promise of trying something

new, something different, and possibly

finding love again — romantic love and the

love for her job and life.

Immediately, she gets an inkling that

things are not as they were promised —

their guide Craig (Ben Sinclair) wants

their passports for safe-keeping and their

“lush villa” is in the back of a lush villa,

overlooking the dumpsters — but she tries

to make the best of her situation by striking

up awkward work-like friendships with

fellow Tuscan Grove branch managers Deb

(Molly Shannon), Susie (Debby Ryan), Jen

(Ayden Mayeri), Dana (Zach Woods) and

Fran (Tim Heidecker).

The part of this movie that works the

best is within this ensemble as they all

work well off of each other; but they are

soon split apart as Nick (the Tuscan Grove

CEO) casts his eye on Amber, dreamily

wooing her as he likens her to his deceased

The Reel Deal

Dedra Cordle

sister.

As their ethically

questionable relationship

begins to

deepen, and as Nick

begins to introduce

Amber to a new

world of intrigue,

the film kinda loses the plot and begins to

unravel as a whole. There is a whole subplot

involving Nick’s assistant Kat (Audrey

Plaza), the disappearance of the lovelorn

chef that gave them culinary tips (a hysterical

Lauren Weedman) the “poisoning” of

her fellow managers, and the strange

behavior of the elite company Nick keeps,

to name a few.

Although each of these subplots are very

entertaining (it takes a while for all of

them to make sense) it gives “Spin Me

Round” a sense of unbalance and it makes

the audience feel as if it isn’t quite sure

what it wants to be. Is it a romance? A

satirical romance? Is it a murder-mystery?

Is it an abduction story? Is it pointed commentary

about relationships as a whole?

Or perhaps pointed commentary about

work and wealth? At times, it tries to be all

those things, but as stated before its zaniness

and its messaging work within the

ensemble, not quite as much without it.

With plenty of laughs and absurdity to

go around, there is a lot to enjoy with “Spin

Me Round” but try as hard as the cast and

their impeccable comedic timing might,

they cannot entirely save the struggling

narrative that runs throughout the movie

or the plot that feels like it is just throwing

things at the wall to see what sticks.
