Police adjust to transition; contract talks ongoing

By Katelyn Sattler

Staff Writer

The Groveport Police Department is losing experience through

retirements and Columbus is losing officers through a buyout program.

How does the Obetz Police Department compare?

Obetz Police Chief Michael Confer said he is losing some officers.

“We do have some people that are in the process of doing lateral

transfer right now over to another department,” said Confer. “One

of our guys moved up to Hancock County in northern Ohio where

his family lives.”

According to Confer, another Obetz officer is leaving to go to

Reynoldsburg Police Department because it’s bigger and will have

more opportunities and another is leaving to go to Pickerington

Police Department because he lives there.

The Obetz Police consists of 20 full time officers, but will be

down to 18 officers once the two transfer.

In the Obetz Police Department,Confer said, “You have rank to

move up in, but there’s no SWAT team or K9 unit. There’s not

those other branches of the department to move to. And that’s

what these guys are looking forward to being able to move to a different

niche of the police departments that have that.”

When asked if his department needs a SWAT team, Confer

said, “I’ve been here almost 20 years. I think we’ve probably used

a SWAT team maybe 10 or 12 times. And those would usually for

bigger case situations where they turn into domestic violence

issues where people just don’t want to come outside.”

Obetz Council makes adjustments to budget

By Katelyn Sattler

Staff Writer

Obetz City Council approved legislation to reappropriate expenses to the

2022 city budget.

Obetz Finance Director Matt Cramblit said, “We actually received more

money for the Toy Road TIF than we anticipated this year. Payments In

Lieu of Taxes funds were up considerably, so we need this appropriation to

cover the $1,111 auditor/treasurer fees. These monies actually go towards

debt service for the building down at the Creekside and Toy Road area.

Those monies go directly out until the debt service is paid.”

The $1,111 that goes to the auditor/treasurer fees is charged proportionately

to the amount of TIF money collected.

“Money from the gas fund is appropriated for personal services as

salaries,” said Cramblit. “We’ve had to move some things around mainly to

cover the buyout that some utilities department personnel took recently.”

Council also approved appropriating money to the utility deposit fund

and to authorize transfers to the water, sewer, and refuse operating funds.

Council okayed transferring $22,025 to the utility deposit fund and then

transferring $5,000 to the water operating fund, $7,700 to the sewer operating

fund, and $9,000 to the refuse operating fund to apply such deposits

to unpaid utility charges attributable to the depositor.

“The individuals come in and put down a deposit for different utilities

accounts,” Cramblit said. “When they leave, or no longer have the account,

the account doesn’t necessarily close if there isn’t a full payment made on

it. So if the deposit funds are being applied to monies owed, in some cases,

it’s full payment. This takes money from the deposit fund and puts it to the

appropriate fund. We are making sure everybody’s deposits are accounted

for appropriately.”

Obetz Law Director Gene Hollins added, “In some of these instances, it’s

pretty simple applying deposits to unpaid utility charges, but the staff has

tracked these back years now, and matched them up, and then you figure

out from an accounting standpoint how to do that. It’s not as simple as it

sounds. A pretty excellent job on the part of the staff.”

Obetz Historians to sell bricks

By Katelyn Sattler

Staff Writer

The Obetz Historians are selling Obetz commemorative

bricks and Obetz Historians t-shirts as fundraisers.

The group’s mission is to preserve the history of

“Obetz Junction” and “The Village of Obetz.”

The purchase of a brick helps fund the building of

“The Obetz History Wall” or “The Obetz History

Walkway,” which will possibly be located at the gazebo

in Veterans Park. There will be more information on

this in the future.

The Obetz Historians are a (501 c 3) non-profit, so

donations are tax-deductible.

A $100 donation will purchase a 4x8 inch brick. A

$250 donation will purchase am 8x8 inch brick. A $350

donation will purchase a 12x12 inch brick.

Veterans bricks will be gray with logos of the

branch of military service. All others will be red.

Orders can be purchased and paid for at www.bricksengraving.com/obetz-historians.

Businesses are encouraged to buy bricks and provide

a black and white high resolution logo to be used

on their bricks.

Anyone with a connection to Obetz can buy a brick.

The sooner the bricks are purchased, the more likely

they will be on the wall or walkway that will be built.

The group’s goal is 250 bricks.

WHAT IS GUM DISEASE?

Most people don’t realize how

common periodontal disease (also

known as gum disease) is. Three

out of every four adults have some

form of the disease. In its early

reversible stage, called gingivitis,

gums can become red, swollen and

bleed easily. When the disease

progresses to the bone, which

supports the teeth, it is called

periodontitis. At this point it can

cause irreversible damage. In the

advanced stages of the disease, the

bone and soft tissues which

support the teeth are destroyed

and this may cause the teeth to

become loose, fall out, or have to

be removed by a dentist.

Dr. Kelly

Except in rare cases, gum disease

can be prevented by thorough

daily plaque removal by brushing

and flossing, eating a balanced diet

and by regularly visiting your

dentist for professional cleanings.

When plaque is not removed, it

hardens into a rough porous

deposit called tartar. Tartar is what

causes most of the eventual

damage and can only be removed

by a dental professional.

Prepared as a public service

to promote better dental health.

Continued from page 1

When Obetz does call for a SWAT team, it calls

Franklin County first and then call Columbus SWAT.

In discussing the need for new officers, Confer said,

“I don’t know how the recruiting process is going to go

yet because we are a city now. And, as a village, you

didn’t have to go by all the same rules to do national

testing network and all the stuff that cities have to do.

So I actually have to get with my human resources

department and we have to narrow down exactly what

the rules are per charter as to what the process is

going to be to recruit new people in.”

Obetz is in contract negotiations with the Fraternal

Order of Police. It’s not currently known what will

change concerning recruiting of new officers.

“That depends on what they negotiate in their contract

of how they feel things should be done to what

falls under management right of the way we want to do

things,” said Confer. “But until that contract is all

done, I couldn’t tell you how the process will go.”

When asked how the negotiations are progressing,

Confer said, “We meet a couple of times a month. We

don’t have a meeting this coming couple of weeks

because of the Zucchinifest. We’ll get back together at

the end of September. And depending on what the snafus

are between what they want and what we want

between the city and the officers. Until we come to an

agreement, it can be a couple of years. It can be three

months. It just depends on how it goes.”

Confer said there are two supervisors and two officers

that work on the FOP side.

“So imagine that two sides of a table and on this

side of the table is (city administrator) Rod Davisson

and (deputy city administrator) Mike Corbitt, Law

Director Gene Hollins, and (deputy chief) Brian

Jeffers, and me, and our attorneys,” said Confer. “And

on the other side is the FOP guys, two of our officers,

and two of our supervisors. So we can all hash stuff

out, back and forth.”

He said the individuals who are elected for the FOP

free of charge at home events. Home event tickets will

be sold through the link above. No cash tickets will be

sold. Away games may also only offer online ticket

sales, depending on the opponent and their ticket policy.

Ticket prices for OHSAA Tournament contests will

be the ticket rate set by the OHSAA and the Central

District Athletic Board.

side are representing the rest of the department.

“That is, they’re there to answer questions about

what the department as a whole wants,” said Confer.

“When we have questions, they help answer those. And

when we have questions for the FOP, they collaborate

answers to get back to us.”

Once the two sides agree on a contract, it will need

to be approved by Obetz City Council.

Confer could retire in about six years and will start

implementing a succession plan in about three years.

“The Groveport Police are going through retirement

right now, so they’re having to fill those spots,” said

Confer. “But our time’s coming in the next five or six

years. There’s a crew of us that have been here forever

and ever that are going to retire. So we’re in the

process of working through that succession planning

and getting everything together to start filling spots

for our retirements. Using me for an example, in six

years I'll be eligible to retire. So in three years, whoever

is sitting in my deputy chief spot at that time, I will

start feeding that person everything that I can give

them that’s locked up in this head of mine. So prepare

them to take over when it's my time to go.”

Deputy Chief Brian Jeffers could retire before

Confer, so there could be a new deputy before Confer

retires. Confer said all the sergeants, corporals, and

officers will know generally how things are done before

Jeffers leaves and during the transition.

Confer added, “I don’t personally get to pick the

deputy chief. It’s a whole hiring process that everyone

has to come through. But once we make that selection,

we start the training process. Right now, Jeffers works

directly with the sergeants and he’s feeding them his

knowledge, everything that he’s learned over the

years. So one of those sergeants will more than likely

get moved up to his position. And then also what he’s

already fed them, then I’ll start feeding them my stuff

to take over when I retire.”

Foundation to help

Hamilton Local Schools

By Linda Dillman

Staff Writer

The arrival of a Google data center on

Columbus’ southside will benefit Hamilton

Local Schools long into the future by helping

kick start a foundation supporting the

district.

“When development tax abatements are

offered, they have to make the school district

whole and one of the things we negotiated

with Google was to support the academic

foundation,”said Hamilton Schools

Superintendent Mark Tyler.

A quarter million dollars of seed money

from the tech company helped set the stage

for creation of the Hamilton Local

Education Foundation, which is funded

through donations and fundraising.

“We have been very fortunate to start

off with a very generous donation made, on

the behalf of Google, by Magellan

Enterprises,” said organizer Scott Shaw.

“Google has decided to give a significant

sum of money to the foundation for us to

utilize to help the students and staff of

Hamilton Local Schools. Google is a great

partner to have, and their donation allows

the foundation to truly make an impact

from its infancy without the unknown of

where funds are going to be generated. It

allows us to step back, re-evaluate what we

are doing and really start to develop a plan

that will sustain the foundation for years

to come.”

According to fellow organizer Carla

Shaw, the foundation benefits staff and

students through their AIM Grant classroom

and project program.

The grants support innovative and creative

programming and materials enhancing

the learning environment of Hamilton

Local Schools.

The first round of grants will be awarded

this fall after teachers apply for funding

and the board reviews and votes on awarding

grants.

Carla said the idea of the foundation

was initially created during the COVID

school closures in the spring of 2020.

“Scott and I, as educators, could see that

there was going to be a need for support for

the students and the staff of Hamilton

Local Schools when we returned,” said

Carla. “Scott really took the lead and

began working on bylaws and paperwork

to form a 501(c)(3) in order to set a path

forward for the future of the foundation. At

first, it was just Scott and I working behind

the scenes getting everything in line.

Quickly we were joined by other members

of the board of directors, but the process

took a solid year and half with our first official

meeting taking place in December of

2021.”

The foundation’s board is comprised primarily

of Hamilton Township alumni along

with a parent representative, school board

liaison and school staff representative.

Currently, the foundation is pushing to

become more visible in the community.

Projects in development include a

Grand Raffle this fall and a comedy night

fundraising event. Members of the foundation

are taking part in the Obetz

Zucchinifest parade, which they hope will

generate community interest in their

efforts and ways to support the schools.

“So much of the early work was behind

the scenes, we want people to know that

the Hamilton Local Education Foundation

is here, we are excited to help the students

and staff of Hamilton Local Schools, and

we are an organization worth putting your

support behind,” said Carla. “This past

spring, Scott and I attended an Auction

Night for the Teays Valley Education

Foundation. It was a great learning experience.

As an organization that has been

around for over a decade, the TVEF

showed us a great example of what we plan

to become. We are just not there yet.”

The husband and wife team feels the

Hamilton Local Education Foundation is

important and impactful in the local community

because a primary purpose of the

organization is to bridge the gap between

the school and the business community.

“We can host events, fundraisers, and

solicit donations in a manner that allows

businesses to make an impact at Hamilton

Local Schools that may otherwise not be

easy for them to accomplish,” said Scott.

Carla added, “Scott and I consider it a

privilege to work alongside Superintendent

Mark Tyler, the Hamilton Local School

Board, and the community of Hamilton

Local Schools. We hope that we are doing

everything in our power to develop an

organization that will be running strong

long after we are gone and that generations

of Hamilton Local students see the

impact of the work being done today.”

Looking to the past and future at Lockbourne school reunion

By Linda Dillman

Staff Writer

Former students who spent their elementary days in a

Lockbourne school building gathered for a third annual

reunion inside the two-story structure recently returned to

its original late 1800s glory.

“Of all the events we have, this is my favorite,” said

Lockbourne Mayor Christie Ward during the Aug. 24 celebration

attended by past pupils who learned the basics of

reading, writing and arithmetic as far back as the late

1930s.

Village of Lockbourne organizers furnished the luncheon

while individuals provided the memories of days past

spent inside the two-story structure, May Day celebrations,

and principal/teacher George Cole, who also lived in

Lockbourne.

“We love to hear the stories,” said Ward.

then took attendees to the future with a presentation

about township changes impacting the district, including

development of farm land that once produced crops and fed

cattle and swine. He said, while he acknowledges the love

for the rural nature of the township, it is not realistic to

maintain that way of life anymore and is beyond the control

of district leaders.

“We’re making the best of it. I do support growth and

development,” said Tyler before outlining upcoming Obetz

projects across Lockbourne and Rathmell roads from the

high school.

“There are two primary developments. All the greenspace

will be developed from Rathmell and Lockbourne to

Parsons Avenue. High-end condos are going in beginning

there and the project is taking shape.”

Infrastructure improvements are also underway along

Lockbourne Road across from the Hamilton Meadows subdivision

for another development. Tyler said the

projects are expected to take eight to 10 years for

full build-out.

“We don’t know exactly how it will impact the

schools,” said Tyler, who reported the design

includes a potential community center, pool, athletic

facility, restaurants and shops. “At full build out

they expect 900 units. There are two factors we

won’t know until we get there–how fast and how

many children will come. If we see the numbers the

developer and our architect are predicting, it’s

roughly 400 students and we’ll be okay.”

If the estimate of new students holds, Tyler does

not expect there will be a need for district expansion,

but administrators are prepared just in case.

“We are not in any way panicked,” said Tyler.

“We have a really good school system. We’ve lost

some enrollment and we’ll likely see new builds

bring us back up to our high water mark. Our

schools are in great shape, both brick and mortar

and financially as well.”

Tyler told the former Hamilton students it is humbling for

him to see people years removed from school that continue

to come back and still have a reverence for a building that

provided their early education.

Hamilton Township Schools announced the selection

of Bailey Moore as the next head varsity softball

coach of Hamilton Township High School.

“I have had the pleasure of knowing Coach Moore

since her junior year in high school when she transferred

to us from Gahanna Christian,” said former varsity

softball coach Sami Tollison. “As a player, she was

hard working, determined and always willing to go the

extra mile to help those around her. She was every

coach's dream, and had the academics and heart to back

it up. Coach Moore held the Hamilton home run record

until this past season. When she returned from playing

collegiate softball, I knew that she had so much more to

give to this game and our program. She has worked

with our program at every level, and I am not sure what

is greater, her love for the game or her passion for the

girls she coaches. It is a blessing to be able to leave

something that me and my family love so dearly in the

hands of someone we know who will continue to foster a

love for this game to our athletes at all levels."

Moore graduated from Hamilton Township High

School in 2015. She played softball at Hamilton

Township and the collegiate level, with experience from

Cedarville University and Ohio Christian University.

Bailey has over five years of coaching experience at

Hamilton Township which includes middle school, junior

varsity, and varsity experience.

“Coach Moore’s familiarity to with our students,

schools, parents and softball program will be a tremendous

asset to her success here at Hamilton Township

High School,” said Matt Thompson, athletic director.

“We are excited for this announcement and that Bailey

Moore will be our next head softball coach at Hamilton

Township.”

e plot leaves the audience ‘spinning’

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

The Reel Deal

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

Dedra

Cordle

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

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.

Wag!fest

It was a day for

the dogs at Prairie

Oaks Metro Park.

On Aug. 27, several

hundred

canines from

across the state

descended upon

the park’s Darby

Bend Lakes area

to participate in

the annual animal

fiesta known as

Wag!Fest. For six

hours, pooches of

all ages and

breeds were able

to play in the

water, meet new

friends, test their

agility at an

obstacle course,

and generally

have a dog-gone

good time. Shown

here trying to

have an even better

time during her trip to the Water Bark Beach is 1.5-year-old Juniper. Her

human companion, Austin Wolfe of Obetz, was waiting for the dock to clear to

toss her toy, but she was not appreciative of the lag time.

Faith and

Hope, both

4 - m o n t h s -

old, came

from a feral

cat colony.

Both girls

are quite shy

but should

warm up

once they

get settled into a new home. Faith would like

to be adopted with her sister, Hope, or with

existing pets for her to bond with. Hope would

be a great companion for someone who likes

to enjoy life’s quiet moments. These kittens

are available for adoption through Friends for

Life Animal Haven.

FYI: fflah.org

Clara is a sweet girl

who is looking for

someone to love. Her

owner died and left her

heartbroken, but this 3-

year-old is learning to

love again.

She is a little shy but

warms up quickly. She

enjoys pets, treats, and a warm area to rest.

Meet Clara at the Colony Cats cage-free

adoption center.

FYI: colonycats.org

Ginger Mae is an independent cat who likes

pets of the week

her alone time, but will

let you know when she

would like you to pet

her. She is docile and

gentle, and since being

moved to the busy

adoption center, is usually

hiding, often in a litter

box. She’s a beautiful

Maine Coone mix.

Adopt her through

Colony Cats.

FYI: colonycats.org

Sweet Pea is a very

sweet girl who is quiet,

likes car rides, and

would love a home as

your one and only so

she doesn’t have to

share her people’s

attention. She does

have allergies but her skin has improved

since starting her allergy medication. She is

available for adoption or foster through the

Franklin County Dog Shelter.

One of the largest township earthworks,

a conical mound at 300 feet in diameter,

was located on a farm owned by the

O’Harra family. According to Prosper Deadlines: Grove City, Groveport & All editions - Mondays at Noon.

through the center, but it is five to eight

feet above the original level of the mound.”

As more land was plowed under by

farmers, the ancient mounds disappeared

from the landscape and the original township

topography further eroded with the ASSOCIATION ADS

construction of modern housing and commercial

developments.

A closer look at land features can often

reveal history buried beneath the soil or

explain strange jogs in a road.

If you look at a map of Hamilton

Township, regardless if it was created in

2019 or 1895, Lockbourne Road is shown

as a straight line traveling north and

south. However, that line is interrupted at

one small spot just north of the intersection

at London-Groveport Road.

The “bump in the road,” as indicated on

an 1856 county map and Caldwell’s 1872

Atlas, skirted a small lake fed by a tributary

of the Gahanna River, now known as

Big Walnut Creek. Looking west, the site

was home to a large-scale gravel operation

and a private residence.

Scattered throughout the atlas are

other interesting topographical features,

including Native American forts and

mounds.

On elevated land in the northwest quadrant

of the township, sandwiched between

the feeder canal linking Columbus with

Lockbourne and what is now High Street

was an ancient fort. According to the 1880

“History of Franklin and Pickaway

Counties,” a mile east of the site were

mounds where implements and human

bones were excavated.

Baker’s Hill was one of at least 15

mounds in the township. It was 75 feet in

diameter at its base and 15 feet high.

Other smaller mounds dotted the landscape.
