Madison-Plains mourns loss of band director

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

The Madison-Plains Local School District

is mourning the loss of teacher and band director

Dan McCulloch who passed away the

morning of Sept. 1 as the result of a singlecar

traffic accident.

McCulloch, 37, had just started his second

year at Madison-Plains. He taught music

classes for grades 9-12 and directed the high

school’s marching band and concert band.

“Despite the fact that he had only been

here for a year, Dan’s care and concern for

our students, as well as his gentle disposition,

really won over our students,” said

Madison-Plains Superintendent Chad

Eisler on Sept. 2. “They had developed a

strong bond with him. Our students and our

staff are really hurting today.”

School counselors were available to talk

with students and staff on Sept. 1. Five grief

counselors with the Madison County Crisis

Response Team were available to students

and staff on Sept. 2.

“We will work to get through the coming

days together,” Eisler said.

In a Facebook post to the school community,

Eisler described McCulloch as a “wonderful

teacher and valued member” of the district.

“In the year that I’ve had the opportunity

to know Dan, it became clear to

me he had three great loves:

his family, his Houston Astros,

and the marching band,” Eisler

said.

In addition to his time at

Madison-Plains, McCulloch

served as a teacher at the Vanlue

and Ridgemont local school

districts. He graduated from

IH Kempner High School in

Sugar Land, Texas. In 2014, he earned a

bachelor’s degree in music education from

The Ohio State University where he played

trombone in the marching band.

Dan McCulloch

McCulloch was the son of

Timothy A. (Sharon) McCulloch

and the late Cynthia A. Brown.

He is survived by his grandmother,

Vergetta Allebach of

Upper Sandusky, his sister,

Leanne (Benjamin) Blankenship,

of Upper Sandusky, and

many nieces and nephews.

Visitation and a funeral

service took place on Sept. 8 at

Bringman Clark Funeral Home, Upper Sandusky.

City looks to build gym for youth sports programs

Grant would fund demolition of old building

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

London city leaders are looking into tearing

down the building currently used for

youth sports programs and replacing it with

a steel building at another location.

For years, the city has used the gymnasium

in the former

school building adjacent

to city hall on

youth basketball

and volleyball. Built

in 1913, the building

is deteriorating.

Earlier this year,

the Ohio Department

of Development

awarded the

city a $461,400

grant to demolish

the building.

“It’s well past its

prime, and urban

renewal needs to

take place. The

decay of that building

on this blighted

corner needs to

make way for new

opportunities,” said

Mayor Patrick Closser

at the Sept. 1

city council meeting.

“We have done

our due diligence on

this building, trying

to get it occupied or sold,” he continued. “We

have had many developers come in and,

after walking through the building, they

were not interested in the least, even if we

were willing to give it to them.”

The $461,400 grant will save the taxpayers

money, he added.

“If we were not able to secure this grant,

there is no doubt in my mind that within the

next five to 10 years that building would

still be empty and we would be forced to tear

it down at the city’s expense,” Closser said.

The state requires that the demolition be

completed by May 2023. The grant covers

the demolition, hauling of debris, filling of

the land, landscaping, and new sidewalks.

Closser reported that council member Andy

Hitt plans to bring forth legislation at the

Sept. 15 meeting to accept the grant and put

the demolition project out to bid.

In the meantime, city leaders are working

with an architect on plans for a steel

building to house youth sports. The basic

floor plan would give the city approximately

the same amount of gym floor space as it has

now in the old building. The new building

also would contain bathrooms, concession

stands, a small office, a storage room and a

mechanical room.

“We’re not looking to build the Taj Mahal

but a functional steel building gym so we

can continue to offer youth athletics and

continue to grow our programs while giving

the youth of this community something constructive

to do,” Closser said.

The proposed location for the building is

to the bus garage on the city hall campus.

That could change, Closser noted.

Once the initial drawings are complete,

the architects will come up with a cost estimate.

The city hopes to forge a private-public

partnership to cover the cost.

“We’re in talks with some local citizens

who may be willing to donate some money

to it. The money that can’t be covered by private

donations, the city likely would cover

through debt service,” Closser said.

He added, “We are in the initial steps of

this process but want to be transparent and

let the community know what we are looking

to do.”

West Jefferson park celebration set for Sept. 17

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

The village of West Jefferson aims to create

a “Saturday in the Park” atmosphere for

its celebration of the completion of major improvements

at Garrette Park.

Hotdogs, hamburgers, cotton candy, ice

cream, and a deejay are part of the plans for

the dedication set for 12 to 3 p.m. Sept. 17

at the park. Local and state officials and

supporters will be on hand. The public is invited

to attend.

“The improvements are the result of a

concerted effort by the whole village,” said

Mayor Ray Martin. “The dedication is a

chance to show appreciation for these new

amenities for the residents, and a chance for

residents to get to know their park.”

The improvements include new playground

equipment with all-inclusive features

for children of all ages and abilities, a new

shelter house, new picnic table pads, and

new sidewalks, landscaping, and fencing.

“The whole deal has changed. Nothing

from yesterday is there. It’s just a brand

new park, period,” Martin said.

Improvements also include two new

handicap parking spaces at the front of the

park. In cooperation with the West Jefferson

Community Association, owner of the

Ox Roast grounds adjacent to the park, the

village also increased the size of the gravel

parking area at the back of the park.

Most of the improvements were completed

last year with some finishing work

done this year. The total cost was approximately

$589,000. Senator Bob Hackett of

London helped the village to secure a capital

grant of $197,000 toward the cost. Battelle

Memorial Institute awarded the village a

$25,000 grant. The village covered the rest

of the cost.

West Jefferson’s ongoing efforts to upgrade

its parks shifted focus to Westwood

Park this year where several improvements

are in progress. Asphalt has been laid for a

tennis court, two pickleball courts and a

basketball court at Westwood Park. Next up

is installation of nets and poles.

“It’s a brand new basketball court. They

made it six feet wider than the previous one

so that you can have one full court or two

side-by-side half-courts,” Martin said.

Also going in at Westwood Park is a new

fenced-in playground located next to the

tennis court and parking lot. The new playground

equipment will sit on a rubberized

surface. Among the playground’s features

will be a merry-go-round that seats six with

three of the seats designed to accommodate

wheelchairs.

“It’s really cool,” Martin said about the

merry-go-round.

An obstacle course similar to the one installed

at Cowling Park in London will be

installed where the old playground was at

the park.

“There’s quite a bit going in over there. It

will be the crowning jewel of the neighborhood,

no doubt,” Martin said.

If all goes well, the improvements at

Westwood Park will be completed this fall.

The timing depends on manpower, delivery

of equipment, and weather, Martin noted.

Other projects on the radar for this year

or next year are restrooms and a new ninehole

disc golf course at Westwood Park.

Sometime in the future, the village also

would like to install walking paths at both

Westwood Park and Garrette Park.

London native writes book about exercise revolution

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

Roger Reynolds, a London native, was an

integral part of a research-based outreach

that changed the way people around the

world think about exercise. The primary

message: Exercise is medicine.

Reynolds and two of his colleagues, Dr.

Tom Collingwood and Dr. John Poteet, have

co-authored a book—“Changing the World’s

Exercise Habits: A History of Dr. Kenneth

Cooper’s Fitness Missionaries” —about their

experiences as employees of the Cooper Aerobics

Center in Dallas, Texas.

“We spent our lives in this career and

think there are still people who don’t know

who Dr. Cooper is or what he did... It was

time for us to speak,” said Reynolds about

why he and his colleagues, all of whom are

now retired, decided to write the book.

Dr. Kenneth Cooper, often called the “Father

of Aerobics,” developed an exercise program

in the late 1960s based on a person’s

ability to distribute and use oxygen over

sustained exercise—in other words, the

body’s “aerobic” means of producing energy.

He created a points system that determined

how much exercise a person needs to

achieve a positive training effect.

He first applied the system as a lieutenant

colonel in the United States Air

Force where he was tasked with researching

the effects of exercise on the human

body and developing a new physical fitness

program for the Air Force. He then took

what he found to civilian life, writing books

and establishing the Cooper Aerobics Center.

In the process, he sparked an exercise

revolution.

The center is comprised of three parts—a

clinic, a fitness center, and an institute for

research and education. Cooper assembled

a team to help spread the word about the

positive impact an active lifestyle can have

on a person’s health and well-being. As employees

of the institute, Reynolds, Collingwood

and Poteet helped to head up that

effort.

“We called ourselves missionaries, with

our mission being to teach the world that exercise

is medicine,” Reynolds said during a

recent phone interview from his home in

Frisco, a suburb of Dallas. “We wanted people

to know there is a better way to treat

disease than to wait for disease—it’s wellness

and prevention.”

Reynolds’s path to a career in wellness

and fitness has its roots in his upbringing in

London, something he shares in the book.

He credits his mother, Dorothea, for being

the rock of the family—a single mother raising

four boys and instilling in them the

virtues of love, faith, sacrifice, hard work

and selflessness. Reynolds learned the concept

of teamwork as part of a family “working

together in order to survive.”

Reynolds and his brothers—Bob, Gary

and Dick—were active youngsters, and all of

them excelled in athletics. While a student

at London High School, Reynolds made his

mark in multiple sports and, upon graduating

in 1959, accepted a scholarship to play

football at Bowling Green State University.

His success there landed him a National

Football League (NFL) contract with the

New York Giants. In total, he spent eight

years in the NFL, playing for the Giants, the

Atlanta Falcons, and the Cincinnati Bengals.

Reynolds also served in the U.S. Army

as an infantry officer. While on active duty,

he served as the Ft. Benning sports and athletic

officer and was a captain on the Ft.

Benning Doughboy football team.

After his military service, Reynolds pursued

a master’s degree in exercise science at

Western Michigan University. It was during

this time that he made his first direct connection

with Cooper, requesting that Cooper

serve as his master’s thesis adviser.

“Dr. Cooper’s work had been very personal

and important to me, as I used his aerobic

point system while training as a

professional athlete. I was fascinated with

the structure and simplicity of the program,”

Reynolds writes in the book.

After spending time as a teacher and

coach at the high school and college levels,

Reynolds decided to pursue his passion for

helping children and adults become more

physically fit. He joined the staff of the National

Fitness Motivation Organization

which served as a springboard for his career.

Initially, his focus was corporate fitness

programs.

“I came up with the idea of going to corporations

to show the benefits of exercise as

for checkout at London Public Library.

a way to lower the risk of absenteeism, increase

production, and boost morale,” he

said.

Reynolds’s ideas took off in Ohio, Indiana,

Illinois and Michigan. He sold his

workplace fitness plan to business and industry

leaders. He was asked to speak at

conventions about his findings related to exercise

and lifestyle changes. He joined forces

with an expert in exercise physiology to develop

a new business, Human Performance

Systems, which enjoyed great success.

All the while, he was sharing his program

results and research data with

Cooper.

“The next and final step in my passionate

fitness career occurred when I was asked to

join the Cooper Aerobics Center staff,”

Reynolds writes in the book. “All the afore-

mentioned experiences provided a foundation,

especially for the concept of teamwork,

that I was able to bring to bear at the

Cooper Aerobics Center.”

Reynolds spent over three decades working

for the center. After retirement, he returned

to education as a substitute teacher

for grades K-12 at a private Christian school

in Dallas. He is now in his seventh year of

substitute teaching.

He continues to stay connected with the

Cooper Aerobics Center, helping with projects

on a voluntary basis at the institute

and clinic. He and his wife, Annette, celebrated

their 50th wedding anniversary this

year. They maintain a daily exercise routine

and are the proud parents of four children

and proud grandparents of six grandchildren.

“Changing the World’s Exercise Habits:

A History of Dr. Kenneth Cooper’s Fitness

Missionaries” can be purchased through

Amazon and Barnes & Noble and is available

for checkout at London Public Library.

Reynolds will be visiting London the

weekend of Sept. 30-Oct. 1 to attend a

multi-class high school reunion. He plans to

introduce his book to his classmates at that

time.

West Jefferson Ox Roast

Messenger photos by Jeff Pfeil

The 71st Ox Roast took place Sept. 3-5 at Garrette Park in West Jefferson. Despite rain storms, the festival offered up a great time with

plenty of entertainment, inflatables, food, crafts, eating contests, and serving of the famous Ox Roast sandwiches.

The inflatable rides this year included a foam machine which proved to be very popular with children of all ages.

The first eating contest of the weekend featured pie. Contestants

had to eat the pie filling and crust to win the prize. Jaden Anderson

was very happy to place first.

(ABOVE) The Ox Roast pit, 120

feet long and 4 feet deep, is

dug then filled with wood each

year on Sunday morning for

the pit lighting. Despite a rain

shower right before the lighting,

the fire was lit only a few

minutes late to begin the

process of making a bed of

coals to roast 3,000 pounds of

beef to make the Ox Roast

sandwiches on Monday.

Ox Roast contest are: (from

Canada. Morasse has lived in Columbus for about 10 years and

had heard about the Ox Roast and the sandwiches. He wanted to

come out to try them.

Members of the Madison County Safe Communities Coalition gathered on Aug. 24 to kick off their annual “Drive

Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign.

Drive sober or get pulled over

Over Labor Day weekend, law enforcement in Madison

County participated in the “Drive Sober or Get

Pulled Over” impaired driving awareness campaign

which sran from Aug. 17 through Sept. 5.

In support of the law enforcement community’s dedication

to protecting the lives of residents in their communities,

officers worked together over the holiday

weekend to take drunk drivers off the roads. These expanded

efforts to protect against impaired driving were

conducted in a fair and equitable way.

The Madison County Safe Communities Coalition

brought awareness to area residents during their annual

“Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” kickoff on Aug.

24 at the Madison County EMA office in London. Agencies

present at the event were Madison County Public

Health, Madison County Emergency Management

Agency, Madison County Sheriff’s Office, London Police

Department, West Jefferson Police Department, Plain

City Police Department, London Fire/EMS, Ohio SADD

and the West Jefferson Post of the State Highway Patrol.

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

(NHTSA), in 2020, 11,654 people were killed in motor

vehicle crashes that involved an alcohol-impaired

driver. On average, more than 10,000 people were killed

each year from 2016 to 2020, and one person was killed

in a drunk-driving crash every 45 minutes in 2020.

This is why Madison County Safe Communities is

working together with NHTSA to remind drivers that

drunk driving is not only illegal, it is a matter of life and

death. As you head out on the roads any time of year,

remember: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.

“We want our community members to understand

that it’s our first priority to keep people safe,” said Sgt.

Jason Snodgrass. “This is an awareness effort to get the

message out that drunk driving is illegal and it takes

lives. Let’s make this a partnership between law enforcement

and drivers: Help us protect the community

and put an end to this senseless behavior.”

The Madison County Safe Communities Coalition

and NHTSA want to remind citizens of the many resources

available to get them home safely:

• It is never okay to drink and drive. Even if you’ve

had only one alcoholic beverage, designate a sober

driver or plan to use public transportation or a ride

service to get home safely.

• If you drink, call a taxi, a ride-hailing service, or a

sober friend

• Do you have a friend who is about to drink and

drive? Take the keys away and make arrangements to

get your friend home safely.

the Constitution and to encourage the

study of the historical events which led to

the framing of the Constitution.

A

energy and very intelligent. He is reported

to be house trained and crate trained, and

he loves milk bone treats.

Jack did well on his dog-to-dog testing

but was a bit on the bossy side when a

smaller dog tried to dominate a fellow playmate.

If you know about Jack’s breed, then

you know they tend to want to make everyone

mind and be polite. He knows how to sit

but would love to learn more training in a

home environment. Since Jack is of the

herding breed, the shelter staff is erring on

the side of caution and saying he should not

be placed in a home with cats or small animals;

he might be prone to chase them. The

staff would love for Jack to go to a home that

is on the calmer side, since that is what he

is used to, with a fenced yard where he can

burn off energy before coming inside to take

a nap with you.

He would be just fine in a home with

kids—he was around kids in his previous

home—but calmer, older kids may be best

due to his size and breed. The shelter staff

would love for this boy to go to owner(s) who

have previous experience with a breed of

this type. You won’t be disappointed when

you meet this loyal, loving boy.

Adoption fees for dogs vary: shelter dogs

are $180, prison dogs are $250, puppies are

$300, and popular pure-breeds are $400.

The price includes: a Home Again microchip,

set of shots, deworming, heartworm

testing (if old enough), spay or neuter, and

a one-year rabies shot (if old enough). All

dogs adopted must leave with a county license

at an additional cost of $17; this fee is

cash only. Adoption fees can be paid by cash

or credit card.

Marley

Marley is the

sweetest 4-year-old

kitty cat who was returned

to us in the

beginning of March

2022 after her previous

owner was no

longer able to care for

her. You will find

Marley roaming

around our cat adoption

room, and when

you enter the room, she will rouse and

prance up to you, looking for pets an attention.

She loves to use her scratch pads and

is a very well-behaved kitty. Sometimes she

gets scared of sudden, loud noises, but that’s

most cats.

The shelter staff feel she would do very

well with other cats and cat-friendly dogs

with time and slow, proper introductions. So

far, she seems to prefer female cats over

male cats. With as sweet as she is, the staff

also feels she would do well with kids who

know how to be respectful to animals and

won’t pull her fur or yank her tail. She may

be slow to come out of her shell in a new

home, but with time and patience, she will

become a great addition to a family. Come

meet Marley today and give her as many

pets and head scratches as your heart desires.

The adoption fee is $80 for kittens up to

6 months old and $60 for cats 7 months and

older. It includes: a FeLV/FIV test, spay or

neuter, set of shots, deworming, and a oneyear

rabies shot (if old enough). Fees can be

paid by cash or credit card.
