Village could require<br />

contractor registration<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> Editor<br />

Mount Sterling village council is considering<br />

legislation that would require general<br />

contractors doing business within village<br />

limits to register with the village.<br />

The proposal calls for an annual registration<br />

fee of $75. The measure would allow the<br />

village to keep a list of contractors and track<br />

and prevent those who do poor work or who<br />

defraud customers from doing business in<br />

the village.<br />

“My main concern with this is storm<br />

chasers—people who come in after hail, tornado,<br />

or a high wind event and take advantage<br />

of the most vulnerable people in our<br />

community,” said council member Andy<br />

Drake, chair of council’s zoning committee.<br />

Should council approve the proposal,<br />

homeowners would be able to ask contractors<br />

if they are registered with the village or<br />

call the village to confirm their registration,<br />

Drake said.<br />

He added that other municipalities in<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> County have registration requirements<br />

in place for general contractors. These<br />

business operators<br />

must register in<br />

PAID<br />


PERMIT NO. 1516<br />

EDDM<br />


each municipality<br />

that has such legislation<br />

on the books.<br />

Mount Sterling’s<br />

proposal was passed<br />

on first reading at<br />

council’s Sept. 12<br />

meeting. It will be<br />

up for a second<br />

reading at council’s<br />

next regular meeting<br />

on Sept. 26.<br />

Also up for a second<br />

reading on Sept.<br />

26 is legislation that<br />

would establish<br />

building code compliance<br />

standards<br />

and a $40 permit fee<br />

for residential<br />

swimming pools. As<br />

new housing has<br />

come into the village<br />

over the last several<br />

years, the village is<br />

receiving inquiries<br />

from new residents<br />

about the standards,<br />

Drake said.<br />

Mason Park<br />

Environmental Engineering, a consulting<br />

firm out of Columbus, recently flew a<br />

drone over the Mason Park property to get<br />

a lay of the land. With input from council’s<br />

parks and recreation committee and the<br />

community, the firm will put together a<br />

multi-year plan for improvements at the<br />

park.<br />

Thanks to fundraisers and a $75,000<br />

grant from the state capital budget, the village<br />

has approximately $100,000 to spend<br />

on a first phase of improvements. Becky<br />

Martin, chair of the parks and recreation<br />

committee, said the group hopes to nail<br />

down a list of projects for the first phase in<br />

the next few weeks.<br />

Possibilities for improvements in the<br />

short- and long-term include memorial<br />

benches, a dog park, swings, a splash pad, a<br />

walking path that connects the village to the<br />

park, a concession stand with flushable restrooms,<br />

extension of the parking lot, and new<br />

or refurbished fencing. Martin said the committee<br />

welcomes other ideas from the public.<br />

“We have a lot of great ideas, but we’d<br />

love more,” she said.<br />

The parks and recreation committee’s<br />

next meeting is set for 6 p.m. Oct. 5 in council<br />

chambers at town hall. The meeting is<br />

open to the public.<br />

Water tower<br />

Council held a second reading on a resolution<br />

authorizing Mayor Marci Darlington<br />

to apply for a loan through the Ohio Environmental<br />

Protection Agency to help cover<br />

the cost of a new water tower. The resolution<br />

will be up for a third reading and possible<br />

vote at council’s next regular meeting.<br />

Drake, chair of council’s finance committee,<br />

emphasized that a loan isn’t necessarily<br />

the way the village wants to go for funding<br />

the water tower. The resolution would just<br />

give the village the opportunity to do so.<br />

“We’re going to look at all of the options<br />

in front of us,” he said. “My personal preference<br />

is to never borrow money.”<br />

The village plans to replace the current<br />

water tower, which is approximately 100<br />

years old, with a new one with a capacity of<br />

150,000 gallons. In April, the U.S. Army<br />

Corps of Engineers approved a grant to<br />

cover 75 percent of the cost to erect a new<br />

tower. The estimated cost of the project is<br />

$1.37 million which means the grant would<br />

Take a trip back in time with the <strong>Madison</strong><br />

County Historical Society’s Pioneer<br />

Days. The festivities are set for 12-5 p.m.<br />

Sept. 24-25 at the museum grounds, 260<br />

Trinity UMC Women publish special cookbook<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> Editor<br />

Looking to make something good to eat?<br />

Look no further than “Food for the Soul,” a<br />

new cookbook created by the women of Trinity<br />

United Methodist Church in Lilly<br />

Chapel.<br />

The 200-page cookbook contains recipes<br />

for everything from soups and salads to<br />

main dishes and desserts. Among the many<br />

gems are: “Scalloped Chicken,” the signature<br />

dish of church dinners past; “Fitzger-<br />

resenting British soldiers of the late <strong>18th</strong><br />

century.<br />

Some of the demonstrations are interactive.<br />

For example, visitors can try their<br />

hand at running the rope making machine.<br />

They also can try throwing a tomahawk at<br />

a wood block target. As for children’s games,<br />

young visitors can try playing naughts and<br />

crosses, a game that is similar to tic-tac-toe,<br />

nine pins which has similarities to bowling,<br />

or graces, a catch-and-throw game.<br />

Music is on the schedule, too. The<br />

Springfield Dulcimer Club will perform<br />

ald Birthday Cake,” a banana<br />

cream cake that’s a family favorite;<br />

and all sorts of punch possibilities,<br />

including “Pink Punch”<br />

and “Red Satin Punch.”<br />

The recipes come from a combination<br />

of sources, and that’s what<br />

makes the cookbook special. In addition<br />

to soliciting recipes from<br />

current church members and their<br />

families, organizers took a trip<br />

down memory lane.<br />

“At one time, there used to be<br />

three separate churches—one in Big<br />

Plain, one in Georgesville, and one<br />

in Lilly Chapel. The pastor would<br />

rotate among the churches,” said<br />

Kathy Conner, a member of the<br />

Trinity United Methodist Women.<br />

“The ladies in each of the churches<br />

made cookbooks, then after all the<br />

churches came together as one at<br />

Lilly Chapel, they made another<br />

cookbook. We thought it would be<br />

nice to pick some of the recipes<br />

from the older cookbooks to include<br />

in our new one.”<br />

Then, they decided to take<br />

things a step further. Tim Wilson<br />

of Wilson Printing & Graphics,<br />

the London company that published<br />

the new cookbook, suggested<br />

the organizers include a<br />

memorial section featuring the<br />

recipes and photos of church mem-<br />


Continued from page 1<br />

bers who have passed on.<br />

“It is such a wonderful tribute<br />

to these people. It just makes the<br />

cookbook rather special,” Conner<br />

said.<br />

The cookbook also includes a history<br />

and photos of the church, cooking<br />

tips, a weights and measures<br />

list, household tips and an index.<br />

The recipe sections include appetizers<br />

and beverages, breads and rolls,<br />

cookies and candies, desserts, main<br />

dishes, relishes and jellies and miscellaneous,<br />

soups and salads, vegetables<br />

and side dishes.<br />

Conner said the project was a<br />

group effort by the women of the<br />

church. She made special mention<br />

of church organist Mary Lynn<br />

Carothers and her daughter, Kara<br />

Elsberry, who worked behind the<br />

scenes to pull everything together.<br />

“It’s been a blessing. People are<br />

enjoying it. Families are looking<br />

back at recipes and pictures of<br />

their loved ones. It’s just really<br />

special, I think,” Conner said.<br />

“Food for the Soul” is available<br />

for purchase. The cost is $20. Anyone<br />

interested in buying a copy<br />

can contact church member Candy<br />

Fitzgerald at (614) 512-6817. Proceeds<br />

go toward the church<br />

kitchen.<br />

Trinity United Methodist<br />

from 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday followed by the Silver<br />

Cornet Band at 3 p.m.<br />

A few vendors will set up shop on the<br />

grounds throughout the weekend. One will<br />

be selling blacksmithed items and soap<br />

made with goat’s milk and lye as was done<br />

in the late <strong>18th</strong> century and early 19th century.<br />

Another vendor will be selling baked<br />

goods. T&A Catering will be selling food.<br />

All of the Historical Society’s buildings<br />

will be open for tours, including the museum,<br />

the Jonathan Alder log cabin, the<br />

Elizabeth Kitchen log house, the one-room<br />

school house, the barn containing antique<br />

cover just over $1 million of the cost. The village<br />

is looking into options for covering its<br />

25 percent share. Possibilities could include<br />

cash, other grants, a loan, or a combination<br />

thereof, Drake said.<br />

The final engineering study for the project<br />

should be done sometime next year.<br />

Stop signs and crosswalks<br />

Council unanimously approved installation<br />

of stop signs at two intersections that<br />

currently do not have stop signs—Friend and<br />

Market streets and Jefferson and Market<br />

streets—as well as one on the alley between<br />

the Tri-County Fire Department station and<br />

the Sunoco gas station, to take the intersection<br />

from a three-way stop to a four-way stop.<br />

“We had a lot of community input on<br />

The women of Trinity United Methodist Church in Lilly Chapel<br />

have published a cookbook, “Food for the Soul,” that features<br />

recipes from church members past and present.<br />

Church is located at 8530 Lilly Chapel Georgesville Rd., London<br />

(Lilly Chapel). Timothy Rash Jr. serves as the pastor.<br />

farm equipment, the blacksmith shop, and<br />

the caboose and train station.<br />

Byrd said Pioneer Days is one of the many<br />

ways the <strong>Madison</strong> County Historical Society<br />

reaches out to the community to share information<br />

about the county’s heritage.<br />

“It is an all-volunteer effort. We just<br />

want to teach history and what life was like<br />

back on the frontier of Ohio,” he said.<br />

For more information about the <strong>Madison</strong><br />

County Historical Society, call (740) 852-<br />

Society” on Facebook.<br />

this,” Drake said about the sign placement.<br />

This is one of many measures council’s<br />

street committees are making to improve<br />

safety around town. Rebecca Brown, who<br />

lives outside the village limits but spends a<br />

lot of the time in the village for her children’s<br />

activities, had another suggestion.<br />

She said she would like to see crosswalks<br />

(paint, lights, and signage) in the main<br />

square in downtown Mount Sterling.<br />

“We have a very cute, quaint little town,<br />

but we get a lot of traffic,” she said.<br />

Drake said the street committee agrees<br />

with Brown and has discussed the need for<br />

crosswalk upgrades. He said the issue will<br />

be on the agenda at the committee’s next<br />

meeting set for 8 a.m. Oct. 5 in council<br />

chambers at town hall.

VVA celebrates 25th anniversary<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> Editor<br />

The local Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 746<br />

was chartered 25 years ago. To celebrate the anniversary,<br />

the chapter is hosting an open house for all Vietnam-era<br />

veterans and members of the Associates of the<br />

Vietnam Veterans of America.<br />

“The open house is for companionship and a time to<br />

talk,” said Dave Cunningham, VVA 746 commander<br />

and charter member.<br />

The celebration is scheduled for Sept. 25 starting at<br />

1 p.m. at Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 7005, 1 Veterans<br />

Way, West Jefferson. Barbecue will be served. Admission<br />

is free.<br />

Chapter 746 was established to give recognition to<br />

Vietnam-era veterans, as well as opportunities for them<br />

to be involved in the community. In the early years, the<br />

chapter had a color guard and chapter members would<br />

speak to students at schools.<br />

These days, members decorate veterans’ graves prior<br />

to Memorial Day each year at Somerford Township, St.<br />

Patrick Catholic and Oak Hill cemeteries. They also collect<br />

worn and tattered American flags and hold an annual<br />

flag disposal ceremony in the fall.<br />

The chapter has 10 to 15 dedicated members and is<br />

open to more members. Membership applications will<br />

be available at the 25th anniversary celebration. A life<br />

membership costs $50. The chapter meets monthly at<br />

various veterans organization posts around <strong>Madison</strong><br />

County.<br />

and the same number of students with special needs. Mitchell also<br />

applauded Norwood’s latchkey program.<br />

“It’s not something we see at many other districts,” she said. “At<br />

the ESC, our commitment is to serve the needs of our districts.”<br />

Jefferson Local Superintendent William Mullett said the ESC is<br />

helping the district provide services for gifted students. He also<br />

pointed out that, over the last several years, ESCs across the board<br />

were hit with cuts and forced to stretch dwindling dollars for services<br />

for districts under their prevue.<br />

“We have a lot of fairly high incident kids in our pre-school,” said<br />

Mullett, “and one of the biggest things you do for us is pre-school.”<br />

In regular action, the school board accepted retirement requests<br />

from Jeri “Bambi” Keckley, secretary at Norwood, and Mark<br />

Staffan, a teacher at Norwood. Nick Houk was hired on a one-year<br />

extracurricular contract as the high school/middle school assistant<br />

athletic director, and Cherri Schneider was hired as the athletic<br />

site manager on an as-needed basis.<br />

Bigger haunted house needs more volunteers<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> Editor<br />

Mount Sterling’s Haunted House will be<br />

bigger and better than ever this year. With<br />

that comes the need for more volunteers.<br />

“Last year, on average, it took 21 people<br />

at any given time to run the haunted house.<br />

So, you can imagine, we’re three times as<br />

big now. It’s going to take more,” said Tom<br />

Corbin, past master of Mount Sterling Masonic<br />

Lodge 269, host of the haunted house.<br />

Organizers invite anyone interested in<br />

volunteering to attend a meeting at 1 p.m.<br />

Sept. 25 at the lodge, 54 N. London St., or<br />

to call Corbin at (614) 530-3132. Volunteers<br />

are needed to serve as actors, work concessions,<br />

and do other tasks, such as help<br />

younger patrons walk through the house.<br />

This year’s Haunted House dates and<br />

times are Oct. 28-29 from 4-10 p.m. and<br />

Oct.. 30 from 2-4 p.m. Admission is free; donations<br />

are accepted. The spooky spectacular<br />

features activities both inside and<br />

outside the lodge. Children’s games, food,<br />

and a deejay are part of the fun outside on<br />

the street. Creepy characters and scary<br />

scenes are what’s happening inside.<br />

“We have a completely different floor<br />

plan than before,” said Corbin, noting this<br />

is the third year for the event. “People will<br />

go through the main lodge, exit out the back<br />

to go through the corn maze, then go back<br />

into another part of the building and finish<br />

out front.”<br />

Among the new additions to the fright<br />

fest are a zombie-infested swamp and a<br />

room full of lasers.<br />

In conjunction with the haunted house,<br />

the Mount Sterling Chamber of Commerce<br />

is holding a costume contest on Oct. 30 at<br />

the lodge. The children’s category is scheduled<br />

for 2:30 p.m. followed by the adults at<br />

3 p.m. The Chamber also is sponsoring the<br />

children’s games throughout the weekend.<br />

Because some of the activities take place<br />

on the street in front of the lodge, Corbin requested<br />

that village council approve closing<br />

the road for the event. At their Sept. 12<br />

meeting, council voted 5-1 to close London<br />

Street from Houston and Church streets to<br />

Main Street from 5 p.m. Oct. 27 (the day before<br />

the event) to 6 p.m. Oct. 30.<br />

Council member Joyce Phillips cast the<br />

“no” vote on the road closure. During discussion<br />

prior to the vote, she said several residents<br />

complained last year about the lack of<br />

detour signage guiding motorists, especially<br />

semi-truck drivers, around the closure. She<br />

also expressed concern about accessibility<br />

for Sunday morning services at a church in<br />

the area.<br />

Council member Becky Martin said the<br />

village is responsible for posting appropriate<br />

signage. She acknowledged that detour signage<br />

was needed. She noted that the Madi-<br />

son County Sheriff’s Office has personnel on Corbin said the lodge will be sure to accommodate<br />

the church crowd on Sunday as<br />

site during the event.<br />

“Every year, we do better and better with they did last year, adding that the haunted<br />

it,” Martin said.<br />

house hours don’t start until 2 p.m. that day.<br />

BARKER<br />

Debra Jean Barker “Deb” passed away peacefully in<br />

her sleep on Sept. 6, <strong>2022</strong>, in Mount Sterling, Ohio, at<br />

the age of 62. Deb was born on Aug. 6, 1960, in Kalamazoo,<br />

Mich. She was one of four siblings born to Robert<br />

and Mary (Bebee) Jeffries and one of eight siblings<br />

raised by Robert and Betty Jeffries.<br />

Deb was known by everyone as a hard worker<br />

throughout her life in both Allegan, Mich., and Ohio, and<br />

was a life-long animal lover. Her most recent fur babies<br />

were two kitties named Muffin and P.I.T.A, who she<br />

adored. One of her favorite hobbies, needlework, proved<br />

to be one of her greatest talents. She enjoyed crocheting,<br />

knitting, and sewing for family and friends. She loved<br />

making baby blankets and Christmas tree skirts, along<br />

with different curtains for the different holiday seasons.<br />

In the little free time she had, Deb liked reading novels,<br />

enjoyed movies like “Steel Magnolias,” and more recently<br />

had gotten “hooked” on the TV show<br />

“Yellowstone.” She will always be remembered for her<br />

love of watching “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer”<br />

with her only grandson, Gus.<br />

She was known to be “sassy” at times and wasn’t shy<br />

about neither her dislike of raisins and maraschino<br />

cherries nor her love for all things related to homemade<br />

soups. Everyone who knew Deb always kept their holiday<br />

ham bones in their freezer, waiting for Deb to beg<br />

them for their ham bones so that she could make the<br />

world’s best homemade soup stock for boiled dinner. The<br />

irony is that Deb would make her famous soup and then<br />

give it back to the family and friends who had saved<br />

their ham bones. Even her son-in-law said she made the<br />

best homemade soup stock and would always call her<br />

for her special recipe.<br />

Deb was passionate about 80s music and enjoyed<br />

quirky, witty facts about 80s bands. She passed her love<br />

for music on to her daughters and was known to quiz<br />

them about tiny details which always ended in the three<br />

of them breaking out in laughter.<br />

Above all, Deb loved being a mother and grandmother.<br />

Throughout her life, she demonstrated the ethics of hard<br />

work, the value of life-long friendships, and the promise<br />

of unconditional love for her family. She was generous,<br />

giving, and kind to everyone she would meet.<br />

Deb was preceded in death by: her biological mother;<br />

father, Robert Jeffries; and siblings, Fred Jeffries and<br />

Michael Jeffries. Deb is survived by: her mother, Betty<br />

Jeffries; siblings, Patricia Lambes, Renee (Brad) Tyler,<br />

Billy Joe (Basil) Kidwell, Rhonda (Phil) Madalinski,<br />

Melodie (Jim) Davis; daughters, Crystal (Jason) Lung,<br />

Julia Barker; grandson, Augustus Alan Lung; and former<br />

spouse, Barry Barker.<br />

A special thanks to Sammy Boyd who has been supportive<br />

during this time of Deb’s passing. Also, thank<br />

you to all of her friends and various co-workers in both<br />

Michigan and Ohio who were always supportive, encouraging,<br />

and reliable. Deb spent so much of her life<br />

working that her co-workers became like family to her.<br />

She especially enjoyed her time working at Mahle Behr<br />

and Perrigo, Inc. and the relationships she had built<br />

with her many colleagues.<br />

As an expression of sympathy, memorials or donations<br />

can be sent to Porter Tidd Funeral Home in care<br />

of Crystal Lung and Julia Barker. Deb will be laid to<br />

rest in Evergreen Cemetery in Bloomingdale, Mich.<br />

Arrangements were handled by Porter-Tidd Funeral<br />

Home, Mount Sterling. Please visit www.portertiddfuneralhome.com<br />

A parable for today:<br />

“Tall timber stood here once, here on a corn belt farm along the<br />

Monon. Here the roots of a half-mile of trees dug their runners deep in<br />

the loam for a grip and a hold against windstorms. Then the axmen came<br />

and the chips flew to the zing of steel and handle—the lank rail-splitters<br />

cut the big ones first, the beeches and the oaks, then the brush. Dynamite,<br />

wagons, and horses took the stumps—the plows sunk their teeth<br />

in—now it is first class corn land—improved property—and the hogs<br />

grunt over the fodder crops. It would come hard now for this half mile of<br />

improved farmland along the<br />

Monon corn belt, on a piece of<br />

Grand Prairie, to remember once it<br />

had a great singing family of trees.”<br />

Those words were penned by<br />

Carl Sandburg in 1922 in his<br />

poem “Improved Farm Land.”<br />

This was life at the turn of the 20th century. Forests<br />

gave way to farm land as a growing nation continued to<br />

push its boundaries into areas once populated with<br />

mighty timbers.<br />

Within a few short years, the dominance of rural<br />

America was quickly usurped by the lure of city life and<br />

industrial progress. Farm lands giving way to streets<br />

and towns, trains rolling across the landscape, cars<br />

belching out fumes and, in the air, birds on the precipice<br />

of losing their supremacy.<br />

Turn the clock ahead 100 years into the future–our<br />

present–and borrowing liberally from Sandburg, albeit<br />

with a few tweaks, this is today as I look out the living<br />

room window of my Hamilton Township home: Improved<br />

farm land stood here once, here where concrete<br />

bunkers now house the trappings of 21st century life<br />

along the Chesapeake and Ohio train track. Here the<br />

roots of corn, wheat, and soybeans dug their runners<br />

deep into the soil for a grip and hold against drought<br />

and groundhogs. Then the developers came and the asphalt<br />

poured hot in the summer like a black river of<br />

tar–for the cars that brought the people to work in the<br />

warehouses to satisfy the insatiable hunger of consumers<br />

across the land. Concrete, asphalt, and trucks<br />

covered the crops and made an early grave of farm land<br />

that once fed the hungry. Exhaust now perfumes the air<br />

where corn stocks stood board straight in military rows<br />

leading to the horizon. It would come hard now for this<br />

1,000-acre plot of concrete bunkers along the railroad,<br />

on a piece of the Ohio heartland, to know it once held<br />

the heart of family farms.<br />

According to Ohio lore, at one time a squirrel could<br />

hop from a tree at Lake Erie and never touch the ground<br />

until it reached the Ohio River. This was the world first<br />

pictured in Sandburg’s “Improved Farm Land.” While<br />

the poet questions the improvement of land where trees<br />

places<br />

Linda Dillman<br />

are uprooted and replaced with<br />

fields of tilled soil, it still remains<br />

within the natural world.<br />

There is nothing natural<br />

about warehouses, diesel<br />

fumes, and high wattage lights<br />

creating an artificial noon at<br />

midnight.<br />

This is our “Improved Farm<br />

Land” where the trees are but a<br />

memory and the sun kisses<br />

pavement, not soil. This is our<br />

legacy, our homage to the growing<br />

need to feed a machine consuming<br />

rural plots, parcels, and<br />

acres in the name of bigger and<br />

better cars, clothing, and technology.<br />

Progress is inevitable and people need jobs, but how<br />

many warehouses does it take before the Big Bang of<br />

consumerism begins to implode on itself? Retail and<br />

commercial arms continue to spiral outwards, but vacant<br />

shells of stores and warehouses gather dust as economic<br />

inertia changes with the times.<br />

Do we really need more shopping centers and the<br />

complexes that support them? When will we reach the<br />

black hole of development where improved farm land<br />

gets pulled into a vortex so strong, there is no more to<br />

support what we really require?<br />

Rural homes and family farms perched on the border<br />

of big cities are aging dinosaurs as municipal boundaries<br />

and borders swallow up land.<br />

Whether through threats of eminent domain, aging<br />

owners, or the lure of offers too lucrative to pass up,<br />

houses are plowed under, like the crops that once covered<br />

the terrain. Their existence masked by bulldozers<br />

and plastic drainpipes resculpting the landscape as<br />

workers in yellow jackets hoist signs stopping motorists<br />

while massive earth movers crisscross the roadway.<br />

Will our “improved farm land” be as sad a legacy as<br />

Sandburg’s was to him? Time will tell.<br />

Linda Dillman is a <strong>Messenger</strong> staff writer.<br />

Funds go to PC fire district<br />

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine announced on Sept. 12<br />

the first round of funding to be awarded to local first responders<br />

as part of the new Ohio First Responder Recruitment,<br />

Retention and Resilience Program.<br />

A total of $1.67 million is being distributed to 26<br />

agencies to help them support the wellness needs of law<br />

enforcement officers, dispatchers, firefighters, paramedics,<br />

and emergency medical technicians (EMTs).<br />

Pleasant Valley Joint Fire District, which serves the<br />

Plain City area, is among the agencies receiving firstround<br />

funding. The fire district is receiving $45,050 for<br />

a wellness and fitness initiative focused on medical examinations,<br />

fitness, rehabilitation and behavioral<br />

health.<br />

“Our first responders face the daily challenge of providing<br />

the highest level of response and care to Ohioans<br />

during traumatic circumstances, having little to no time<br />

to effectively process the stress brought on by these situations,”<br />

DeWine said. “We created this grant program<br />

to help our first responders take care of themselves so<br />

that they can continue taking care of others."<br />

The Ohio First Responder Recruitment, Retention,<br />

and Resilience Program, administered by the Ohio<br />

Emergency Management Agency, is offering a total of<br />

approximately $75 million in funding for initiatives that<br />

support wellness programs addressing the following:<br />

mental, physical, and emotional health issues unique to<br />

first responders; recruitment and retention efforts to restore<br />

workforce levels; onboarding and training costs;<br />

and explorer programs to engage young adults about<br />

first responder careers.<br />

Although this is the first round of funding to be<br />

awarded to local first responder agencies as part of this<br />

program, approximately $1.3 million was awarded to<br />

several statewide service providers in June.<br />

The program is funded as part of the $250 million in<br />

American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding that<br />

DeWine and the Ohio General Assembly dedicated to<br />

first responders last year to help counter various pressing<br />

issues exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, including<br />

increased stress and decreased staffing levels.<br />

DeWine also has placed enhanced focus on the wellness<br />

of first responders through the creation of the Ohio<br />

Office of First Responder Wellness within the Ohio Department<br />

of Public Safety. The new statewide office focuses<br />

exclusively on the well-being of first responders<br />

and provides specialized support and training to help<br />

emergency-response agencies proactively address posttraumatic<br />

stress and other traumas caused by factors<br />

that are unique to first-responder careers.

Farm Science Review marks 60th anniversary<br />

The diamond anniversary of Farm Science<br />

Review is on the horizon as the annual<br />

farm show is set to celebrate 60 years of research,<br />

advancement and education Sept.<br />

20-22 at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center,<br />

135 State Rte. 38, near London.<br />

“Farm Science Review is a critical component<br />

of our land-grant mission to provide<br />

research-based information and practical<br />

education to the people of Ohio and beyond,”<br />

said Cathann A. Kress, Ohio State’s vice<br />

president for agricultural administration<br />

and dean of the College of Food, Agricultural,<br />

and Environmental Sciences<br />

(CFAES). “We are proud to be the home of<br />

the Farm Science Review, a robust show<br />

demonstrating the college’s research, and<br />

we look forward to carrying out our landgrant<br />

mission through the show in its next<br />

60 years.”<br />

At the review grounds, more than 2,100<br />

acres are dedicated to research, and 600 of<br />

those acres are dedicated to field demonstrations<br />

at the show. So, attendees can be<br />

sure they will find something to learn more<br />

about at the Farm Science Review. An opportunity<br />

unique to Farm Science Review<br />

from other national farm show experiences<br />

is being able to witness corn and soybean<br />

harvesting demonstrations each of the three<br />

days of the show.<br />

“For six decades, Farm Science Review<br />

has offered a gathering place to showcase<br />

products, services and education to the public<br />

to improve profitability, sustainability<br />

and excitement for future possibilities,” said<br />

Nick Zachrich, Farm Science Review manager.<br />

“As Farm Science Review reaches this<br />

milestone for the 60th edition of bringing<br />

the industry together, there is a lot of optimism<br />

that the next 60 years will be full of<br />

new practices and technology that could be<br />

displayed at Farm Science Review this <strong>September</strong>,”<br />

Zachrich added.<br />

Livestock producers, row crop farmers<br />

and avid gardeners will find a plethora of<br />

educational opportunities at this year’s<br />

show, including exhibits ranging from livestock<br />

to electric tractors, tractor improvements<br />

and educational sessions hosted by<br />

Ohio State University Extension personnel.<br />

“OSU Extension’s educational components<br />

at the Farm Science Review make our<br />

farm show different than others,” said Sam<br />

Custer, interim assistant director for agriculture<br />

and natural resources. “The focus on<br />

education makes this a must-attend show.”<br />

“This show also demonstrates the ability<br />

of our Extension professionals to conduct research<br />

and collaborate directly with producers<br />

as well as suppliers to improve product<br />

outputs, basic knowledge, and profits for<br />

all,” added Jacqueline Kirby Wilkins, associate<br />

dean and director, OSU Extension.<br />

Marketplace Pavilion highlights local producers<br />

For the first time ever, Farm Science Review<br />

will feature the Marketplace Pavilion,<br />

a point-of-sale area dedicated to local producers<br />

of agricultural goods.<br />

“We see this as an opportunity to support<br />

local farm economies,” said Nick Zachrich,<br />

Farm Science Review manager. “It’s our<br />

hope that the Marketplace Pavilion will<br />

allow producers to not only market their<br />

products to show visitors but also the many<br />

local and regional grocery retailers in the<br />

area.”<br />

Direct marketing of produce and other<br />

agricultural products continues to be an important<br />

sales outlet for producers across the<br />

state. Both individuals and retailers will be<br />

able to source quality local products from<br />

the Marketplace Pavilion exhibitors.<br />

“We know that most of these producers<br />

don’t have the same marketing budget as a<br />

global equipment manufacturer, so the Marketplace<br />

Pavilion will give them a dedicated<br />

space at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center<br />

to market their unique goods to our show<br />

visitors,” said Zachrich.<br />

Lacie Evans, small business owner of<br />

Heifer Please Co., is looking forward to networking<br />

and promoting her cattle and western<br />

lifestyle-related products at the<br />

Marketplace Pavilion.<br />

“I was a 4-H and FFA kid, and I remember<br />

my favorite thing was going to Farm Science<br />

Review, even as a college student and<br />

now as an adult,” Evans said. “My brand is<br />

geared toward those in the agricultural community,<br />

and I’m excited to give back to the<br />

community I love so much.”<br />

Producers interested in becoming Marketplace<br />

Pavilion exhibitors at the <strong>2022</strong><br />

Avid supporters inducted into Hall of Fame<br />

They say it takes a village, and The Ohio State University<br />

Farm Science Review is no exception. This year, the<br />

Review inducted three individuals who have been avid<br />

supporters of the show in a multitude of capacities into its<br />

Hall of Fame. Chuck Gamble, Bill Phillips and Bob<br />

Zachrich were recognized as the <strong>2022</strong> honorees at a private<br />

event on Aug. 17.<br />

Chuck Gamble–DeGraff, Ohio<br />

Chuck Gamble has a long-standing history with the<br />

Review and the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental<br />

Sciences (CFAES) as a whole.<br />

“I was a student employee for Farm Science Review,”<br />

Gamble said.<br />

After college graduation, Gamble spent three years as<br />

an OSU Extension educator in Logan County before returning<br />

to the Review in 1995 as the assistant manager.<br />

“I started as assistant manager, and I was in that role for<br />

nine years before spending 13 years as the manager of the<br />

show.”<br />

For Gamble, the highlight of his career was the 2008<br />

show.<br />

“Probably one of my favorites was the year Hurricane<br />

Ike hit. That was when you saw agriculture come together,”<br />

he said.<br />

The effects of Hurricane Ike set in on Sunday, and by<br />

Tuesday, Gamble said you could hardly tell any damage<br />

had been done by a storm of that magnitude.<br />

“We literally transformed from a disaster into a show,”<br />

Gamble said. “I had exhibitor after exhibitor asking how<br />

they could help, and I told them to check on their fellow<br />

exhibitors.”<br />

Gamble reminisces about the time he spent working<br />

for the Review and attributes much of the show’s success<br />

to those with whom he worked.<br />

“It isn’t the manager. It takes major<br />

teamwork between paid staff and volunteers<br />

to pull that event off,” he said.<br />

Gamble recently celebrated his retirement<br />

after serving CFAES for a combined<br />

32 years in various positions. He and his<br />

wife, Diana, reside in DeGraff, Ohio.<br />

Bill Phillips–Hilliard, Ohio<br />

Bill Phillips is the chief relationship<br />

officer for the Office of Technology and<br />

Digital Innovation at The Ohio State University.<br />

Phillips has been with the university<br />

since 2006, and his work with the<br />

Review began in 2010 with the mission of<br />

bringing internet to the show.<br />

According to Phillips, the initial challenge<br />

and question to be answered was,<br />

“How do you get internet out there?”<br />

“Chuck [Gamble] and I lived through<br />

the pain of many farm shows where this<br />

stuff didn’t work,” he said.<br />

Phillips is the man who “brought the<br />

Farm Science Review into the 21st Century,”<br />

according to fellow Hall of Fame inductee,<br />

Chuck Gamble.<br />

The feat of bringing internet to the<br />

Molly Caren Agricultural Center and also<br />

providing service to OSU Extension offices<br />

across the state can be credited to<br />

the hard work and efforts of Phillips.<br />

He and his wife of 44 years, Cathy, reside<br />

in Hilliard, Ohio.<br />

Bob Zachrich–Defiance, Ohio<br />

Bob Zachrich, owner of United Seed<br />

Associates, has served in many capacities<br />

at the Review throughout his 49 years as<br />

an exhibitor at the show.<br />

“I’ve been going to the Farm Science<br />

Review since 1972,” Zachrich said. “It<br />

would be my 50th year, except I missed<br />

2020. It’s really something that we have<br />

only missed one show in the last 50<br />

This year’s Farm Science Review Hall of Fame inductees are: (from left)<br />

Chuck Gamble, Bob Zachrich and Bill Phillips.<br />

years.”<br />

Zachrich said he doesn’t really<br />

have a favorite show because each<br />

one has something to look forward<br />

to.<br />

“There is something different<br />

and unusual every year, and that is<br />

what I always look forward to,” he<br />

said.<br />

As a business owner, Zachrich<br />

generously donated seed for years<br />

to the show for the field demonstrations<br />

and has been a large promoter<br />

of the show to his customers. The<br />

family business is supported by<br />

Zachrich’s wife, Connie, and, at<br />

times, his five children, 11 grandchildren<br />

and three great-grandchildren.<br />

The Review has served as a<br />

great opportunity to gather dealers<br />

and family for Zachrich over the<br />

years, through plot work, field days<br />

and other show support. His involvement<br />

with the annual event<br />

continues to this day.<br />

Gamble, Phillips and Zachrich<br />

have exemplified the attributes necessary<br />

to grow the Review into the<br />

world class farm show it is today.<br />

Each honoree said that people and<br />

hard work are what make the show<br />

such a special experience and community<br />

in which to be involved.

Review visitors get to see exhibitors in action<br />

The Farm Science Review field demonstrations,<br />

an attraction visitors flock to<br />

watch each year, will feature the traditional<br />

harvest demonstrations, as well as<br />

new technology ready to make its debut at<br />

the <strong>2022</strong> show.<br />

“We are excited to provide visitors the<br />

opportunity to see innovative, new technology<br />

in action at this year’s show, which is<br />

only fitting for the 60th anniversary of the<br />

Farm Science Review,” said Nick Zachrich,<br />

Farm Science Review manager. “We have<br />

a diverse portfolio of exhibitors this year in<br />

the ag technology space that visitors won’t<br />

want to miss.”<br />

Companies joining the field demonstrations<br />

line-up this year include RYSE Aero<br />

Tech and Agri Spray Drones.<br />

RYSE Aero Tech is the manufacturer of<br />

an ultralight electric vertical take off and<br />

landing (eVTOL) vehicle, the RYSE<br />

RECON. This vehicle will enable farmers<br />

to have a bird’s eye view when crop scouting<br />

their fields, eliminate compaction to<br />

the soil while scouting, and get them from<br />

point A to Point B more quickly.<br />

RYSE Aero Tech’s initial goal was to,<br />

“bring flight to people with a purpose,” according<br />

to RYSE Aero Tech CEO, Mick<br />

Kowitz.<br />

“We wanted to serve a market with a<br />

need for an application like this where people<br />

can use it in difficult terrain to be able<br />

to scout crops or travel places and save<br />

them time doing it,” he said.<br />

Agri Spray Drones, the only company to<br />

operate heavy drones as part of custom application<br />

services, will be bringing its technology<br />

to the Farm Science Review<br />

demonstrations, as well. Visitors will get<br />

to see drones capable of applying liquid or<br />

granular products in action.<br />

In addition to these new additions to<br />

the field demo line-up, the traditional harvest<br />

demonstrations will run every day of<br />

the show:<br />

Trotter Field Demonstrations<br />

Tuesday-Thursday<br />

12:30 p.m.—Tillage, strip-till, nutrient<br />

application tillage, and ag innovations<br />

1:30 p.m.—Harvesting of corn immediately<br />

followed by soybeans<br />

All Day—OLICA field drainage installation<br />

Another exhibitor-favorite feature of<br />

Farm Science Review is the Ride & Drive<br />

area where Can-Am will offer test-driving<br />

opportunities featuring its utility vehicles<br />

designed for any farm terrain. Visitors will<br />

have the opportunity to get inside the latest<br />

models and drive through a test track.<br />

(AT RIGHT) RYSE Aero Tech will showcase<br />

its ultralight electric vertical take off<br />

and landing vehicle during field demonstrations<br />

at the Farm Science Review.<br />

Agri Spray Drones will showcase their heavy drones during field demonstrations at the<br />

Farm Science Review. The drones are capable of applying liquid and granular products.<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> County has determined that the project will have no significant impact on the human environment.<br />

Therefore, an Environmental Impact Statement under the National Environmental Policy<br />

Act of 1969 (NEPA) is not required. Additional project information is contained in the Environmental<br />
