London youth makes history at Ohio State Fair

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

London teenager Madison Estep made

history at this year’s Ohio State Fair Junior

Show when her grand champion market

turkey fetched $25,000 in the livestock sale,

the most a market turkey has ever sold for

at the state fair.

“The most I’ve ever gotten for my birds

was $2,000, and that was for two turkeys

combined at this year’s Madison County

Fair,” said Estep, 14, who has been showing

poultry for six years.

The fact that her market turkey was

named state grand champion was one

thing—she is the first Madison County resident

to achieve the title. The fact that it set

a record in the Sale of Champions ring at

the state fair was icing (a thick layer of it)

on the cake.

Estep’s history-making journey started

at this year’s Madison County Fair where

she earned both the grand champion and reserve

champion titles for her market

turkeys, something that has only been done

once before in the county fair’s history, and

that was in 2020 by none other than Estep.

While anyone can show livestock at the

state fair—performance at the county level

does not serve as a qualifier—Estep said the

county level experience

is invaluable.

“Doing well at

the county level is more or less that nextstep

confidence boost to go for the state

level. It’s good preparation,” she said.

Speaking of preparation, Estep said the

key is time—time spent learning about the

animal and time spent with the animal.

Early on in the season, she would flip over

a five-gallon bucket and sit in the cage with

her turkeys. When the birds were older, she

started walking with them.

“Bonding with the animal is one thing I

think that got me the win—not just how the

bird looked but how much the bird trusted

me,” she explained.

This year marked Estep’s second time

showing at the state fair. The first time, she

placed sixth in her class. She was thrilled to

return.

“I love the fair atmosphere—it’s show kids

and their animals!” she said.

Her first day at state this year, Estep

sized up her competition, seeing she was up

against some seasoned exhibitors. The field

was divided into three classes. To be considered

for the grand champion title, an exhibitor

had to win his or her class.

At the end of the class competition, the

judge lined up the top five in Estep’s class

with Estep at one end.

“When I saw the judge point to the person

on the opposite end and say, ‘fifth,’ my

parents and I made eye contact. They were

London resident Madison Estep (front, in white coat) earned the grand champion title

for her market turkey at the 2022 Ohio State Fair Junior Show. This is the first time a

Madison County exhibitor has won the title. Several supporters were on hand to congratulate

her: (from left) a state fair representative; Paul Gross, Madison County Fair

Board president; Brandon Estep, Madison’s father; Julia Smith, Madison County 4-H key

leader for poultry, and her son, Cade Smith; Amanda Estep, Madison’s mother; and another

Merri Mac playground project celebrated

Volunteers, city officials and are children and their families participate in a ribbon-cutting ceremony to dedicate

the new playground equipment at Merri Mac Park in London.

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

It’s official! On Aug. 28, volunteers, city

officials, and plenty of enthusiastic children

took part in a ribbon-cutting ceremony for

the new playground equipment at London’s

Merri Mac Park.

The new recreational amenity is the result

of several people and groups coming together

for the common good. Merri Mac

Park Miracle, a new non-profit group,

spearheaded the efforts, working in conjunction

with the city.

“It’s awesome!” declared Marilyn Hall,

the group’s treasurer. “The most fabulous

thing about it all was the support of the

community.”

Early last year, Merri Mac Park Miracle

members started holding fundraisers. The

London Marathon and Half-Marathon was

one of the first events to raise money for the

A day for dogs at Prairie Oaks Park

www.madisonmessengernews.com

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 played in the water, met new friends, tested their agility at an obstacle course, and

generally had a dog-gone good time. Their human companions joined in the fun,

shopping for treats, hearing from local experts on pet care, and taking photos of their

beloved pets enjoying the day.

excited. I could see, ‘I’m so proud,’ in my dad’s eyes,”

Estep said.

Another such exchange came when, after competing

against the winners of the other two classes (a brother

and sister duo with whom Estep is good friends), Estep

and her turkey came out on top as grand champions.

“The judge shook my hand, and all I could think was,

‘Don’t cry. You’re on camera.’ I look over at my parents,

and they were just floodgates. This had been the goal

all along. It can’t get any better than this,” she said.

As a grand champion title holder, Estep qualified for

the Sale of Champions. Heading into the ring, she said

she didn’t know what to expect—certainly not the size of

the crowd at the WCOL Celeste Center and certainly

not the size of the bids. The auctioneer opened bidding

at $1,000 and it quickly went to $10,000, then $20,000,

before settling at $25,000. All the while, Estep’s turkey

seemed to take everything in stride.

“He was strutting and trying to peck the cameras

that were everywhere. He definitely was very personable,”

said Estep who, even with her nerves on high

park improvements. The group has since held wiffleball

tournaments, raffles, and cornhole tournaments to raise

funds. They also have solicited cash donations from

friends, small businesses, local civic organizations and

churches.

“We raised over $30,000 in less than eight months

just by reaching out to people we knew. The biggest single

donation we got was $2,500. We had hundreds of

smaller donations,” said Hall, adding that many others

donated supplies and services.

Merri Mac Park Miracle contributed $15,000 of those

funds toward the purchase of the new playground

equipment. The city of London covered the other

$80,000.

Installation came in the form of a “community build”

in July. Volunteers, employees with the city street department,

and professionals with the equipment company

worked together to erect a zip line, ring fling,

four-seat seesaw, spin ride, basketball drop shot, and a

20-foot tall play tower with slides and climbing options.

The finishing touches were completed in August.

In addition to the equipment installation, Merri Mac

Park Miracle members paid to have the existing basketball

court resealed and striped. Volunteers painted the

shelter house and sanded the floor, painted the picnic

tables, and refurbished the existing swing set. The city

installed surveillance cameras at the playground and

surrounding area.

“I’m proud of the Merri Mac Park Miracle committee

and the community for putting this together and

fundraising to bring activities for the kids,” said Amy

alert, did her best to match her turkey’s confident demeanor.

Several buyers came together to purchase Estep’s

turkey. They were OKI Inc., Cox Concessions,

Schmidt’s, Net Steady, SP+, and Expo Services.

Of the $25,000, $3,000 goes to Estep. The state fair

caps the amount exhibitors can earn. Money from the

sales over the caps goes to the fair’s Youth Reserve Program

for scholarships, the outstanding market exhibitor

program, and FFA, 4-H and other fair competition winners.

Estep said she is thankful for her “cheering squad”

at the state fair which included: her parents, Brandon

and Amanda; Madison County poultry 4-H key leader

Julia Smith and her husband, Brian, and son, Cade;

Olivia Rinesmith and her mother, Annette Rinesmith,

who are very involved with the Madison County Fair;

and Paul Gross, Madison County Fair Board president.

“It was good to be there with Mom, Dad, and people

who just really do feel like family. It’s a moment that

will be a core memory,” Estep said.

A member of the Beginners to Winners 4-H Club,

Estep served as a 4-H camp counselor for the first time

Rees, executive assistant to the city administration.

These improvements are just the beginning, Hall

said. The committee is in it for the long haul and hopes

others will come aboard.

“Phase I was just a small part of making a change in

our community and making Merri Mac Park a part of

London as a whole, not just a part of the south end of

town,” Hall said.

The park’s 100 acres are just waiting to be utilized

for recreation purposes for the entire community, she

continued. The committee would like to see at least

eight ball diamonds installed to meet the needs of the

many youths who play travel baseball, AAU ball, and

fast-pitch softball.

“Right now, they all have to go somewhere else to

practice or host a tournament,” Hall said.

To make the ball diamonds happen, the group needs

to put together a concept plan and continue to

fundraise. The next step is to approach corporate

donors, Hall said.

Anyone who would like to help the Merri Mac Park

Miracle committee with their efforts is welcome to attend

a meeting. The group typically meets monthly. For

more information, visit the group’s Facebook page,

“Merri Mac Park Miracle,” or send email to merrimacparkmiracle@yahoo.com.

“We need people to make a commitment to the children

and our city. It’s not a short-term thing. We’re

doing this as a legacy to our children and our children’s

children. We want to make it a place that all of London

is proud of,” Hall said.

Donations can be made out to “Merri Mac Park Miracle”

and mailed to P.O. Box 674, London, OH 43140.

The group is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

others about poultry.

“I get to teach parents and families things about my birds and

just kind of share the love with poultry at the county fair. It’s one

of the main reasons I do 4-H—to teach others about it,” she said.

Estep is a freshman at London High School where she is a member

of the FFA, runs track, and plays sousaphone and tuba in the

Gearing up for annual Heritage Days Festival

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

The South Charleston Heritage Commission

is hosting its biggest event of the year,

the Heritage Days Festival, on Sept. 24. Visitors

can expect all sorts of food, entertainment,

vendors and more with everything

taking place in and around the historic train

depot and log house at 147 W. Mound St.

The day kicks off at 10 a.m. with a parade.

Lineup starts

at 9 a.m. at 140 S.

Church St. near the

Veterans Memorial.

Parade organizer

Patty Moore said

more than 50 units

have signed up so

far and include

everything from

tractors and horses

to 40H groups, antique

cars, and

queens visiting

from other festivals.

“We have a couple

of special anniversaries

this

year. The Presbyterian

Church is celebrating

its 200th

anniversary, and American Legion Post 176

is celebrating its 100th anniversary. Both

will have floats in the parade,” said Moore,

adding that anyone who would like to participate

in the parade can contact her at

(937) 206-5072.

South Charleston resident Sue Mattinson

is the parade grand marshal. Mattinson

recently completed six years as president of

the South Charleston Heritage Commission.

During her tenure, she oversaw installation

of a new stair lift at the opera house and a

mural celebrating the village’s heritage. She

also wrote “Edward Edwards: The Man Who

Built South Charleston, Ohio,” led cemetery

tours, organized two tours of historical

churches, and gave a talk about the women

of South Charleston. She now serves as a

Heritage Commission trustee. She also is

treasurer of the Ladies Monday Night Club

and a member of the South Charleston

Community Club.

“Sue is a fountain of information. She

knows everything about everything,” said

Rick Burton, Heritage Commission president.

“What I really like about her is her

passion for the history of the village. She is

a dynamo.”

Sue Mattinson, shown here selling copies

of her book, “Edward Edwards: The Man

Who Built South Charleston, Ohio, is this

year’s Heritage Days parade grand marshal.

Also on the festival schedule is the always

popular kiddie tractor pull, sponsored

once again by Jennifer and Brian Harbage

and their family. The pull starts at 1 p.m.

Children’s games, including the cane toss,

football toss, and milk can toss, run all day.

Adults are invited to play poker.

Homegrown talent takes the stage starting

at 3 p.m. and continuing through the rest

of the afternoon and evening. All three vocalists

are Southeastern High School graduates,

and all have previously

performed at

the festival. Justin

Brue is traveling

back to South Charleston

from Tennessee

to perform.

Matt Clarkson now

hails from Springfield.

Ty Cooper is a

teacher at Southeastern.

The Heritage

Commission is holding

a silent auction

in conjunction with

the festival. Items

will be on display

outside the train

depot starting at 10

a.m. Bidding closes at 6 p.m. Items up for bid

include home decor, paint supplies, merchant

gift certificates, overnight stays at bed

and breakfasts and log cabins, holiday decorations,

children’s toys, lawn furniture and

more.

Festival goers will have plenty of food options,

including the famous pork chop dinners

made by American Legion Post 176. A

local organization will serve up homemade

gingerbread. Several food trucks are on the

schedule, too: All In Flavor, Diamond Dogs,

The Fat Straw, Miller’s Ice Cream, Poppy’s

Smokehouse, Cray Cray Cajun, Chido’s

Tacos, and Stix Street Food.

Fireworks sponsored by the Madison

Township Fire & EMS Association will close

out the festival. The fireworks will go off at

9:45 p.m. from Church and Woodward streets.

For more information and updates, visit

“South Charleston Heritage Days Festival”

on Facebook. Visitors are encouraged to

bring lawn chairs. Some hay bales will be

set up for seating.

Proceeds from the festival go toward upkeep

of the historic train depot and log

cabin, as well as the opera house at South

Charleston’s town hall.

Food Truck Rally coming to town

The Rose City Food Truck Rally is coming

to South Charleston on Sept. 16. The following

food trucks will be set up from 4 to 8

p.m. at the corner of South Chillicothe and

Jamestown streets: Poppy’s Smokehouse,

Stix Street Food, C Marie’s, SSM Concessions,

and Da Fudge’s Kitchen. Part of the

proceeds will benefit Clark County SPCA.

Interested in history, art, current events

and book reviews? The South Charleston

Monday Night Club could be the group for

you.

Established in 1924, the group is open to

women and meets seven times a year to

hear from local speakers who share information

on a wide variety of topics.

“In the past, we’ve enjoyed a fashion

show by a seamstress who makes Victorian

dresses. She demonstrated the unique aspects

of the dresses with her four sisters as

live models,” said Patty Moore, president.

At another meeting, reenactors dressed

as U.S. President Teddy Roosevelt and his

wife, Edith, provided glimpses of the couple’s

family life at the White House. One

spring, members of the club presented a

one-act play written in the 1930s.

“We’ve also heard a book review of a lady

who walked across America in an effort to

raise money for her family. And, on several

occasions, we have taken European adventures

with the aid of today’s visual technology

and the commentary of an actual

traveler,” Moore said.

As the name suggests, the club meets on

Mondays. The meetings take place at 7 p.m.

at Village Chic, 17 S. Chillicothe St., South

Charleston. Upcoming meeting dates are

Oct. 5, Nov. 8, Dec. 6 (Christmas potluck),
