Village could require

contractor registration

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

Mount Sterling village council is considering

legislation that would require general

contractors doing business within village

limits to register with the village.

The proposal calls for an annual registration

fee of $75. The measure would allow the

village to keep a list of contractors and track

and prevent those who do poor work or who

defraud customers from doing business in

the village.

“My main concern with this is storm

chasers—people who come in after hail, tornado,

or a high wind event and take advantage

of the most vulnerable people in our

community,” said council member Andy

Drake, chair of council’s zoning committee.

Should council approve the proposal,

homeowners would be able to ask contractors

if they are registered with the village or

call the village to confirm their registration,

Drake said.

He added that other municipalities in

Madison County have registration requirements

in place for general contractors. These

business operators

must register in

each municipality

that has such legislation

on the books.

Mount Sterling’s

proposal was passed

on first reading at

council’s Sept. 12

meeting. It will be

up for a second

reading at council’s

next regular meeting

on Sept. 26.

Also up for a second

reading on Sept.

26 is legislation that

would establish

building code compliance

standards

and a $40 permit fee

for residential

swimming pools. As

new housing has

come into the village

over the last several

years, the village is

receiving inquiries

from new residents

about the standards,

Drake said.

Mason Park

Environmental Engineering, a consulting

firm out of Columbus, recently flew a

drone over the Mason Park property to get

a lay of the land. With input from council’s

parks and recreation committee and the

community, the firm will put together a

multi-year plan for improvements at the

park.

Thanks to fundraisers and a $75,000

grant from the state capital budget, the village

has approximately $100,000 to spend

on a first phase of improvements. Becky

Martin, chair of the parks and recreation

committee, said the group hopes to nail

down a list of projects for the first phase in

the next few weeks.

Possibilities for improvements in the

short- and long-term include memorial

benches, a dog park, swings, a splash pad, a

walking path that connects the village to the

park, a concession stand with flushable restrooms,

extension of the parking lot, and new

or refurbished fencing. Martin said the committee

welcomes other ideas from the public.

“We have a lot of great ideas, but we’d

love more,” she said.

The parks and recreation committee’s

next meeting is set for 6 p.m. Oct. 5 in council

chambers at town hall. The meeting is

open to the public.

Water tower

Council held a second reading on a resolution

authorizing Mayor Marci Darlington

to apply for a loan through the Ohio Environmental

Protection Agency to help cover

the cost of a new water tower. The resolution

will be up for a third reading and possible

vote at council’s next regular meeting.

Drake, chair of council’s finance committee,

emphasized that a loan isn’t necessarily

the way the village wants to go for funding

the water tower. The resolution would just

give the village the opportunity to do so.

“We’re going to look at all of the options

in front of us,” he said. “My personal preference

is to never borrow money.”

The village plans to replace the current

water tower, which is approximately 100

years old, with a new one with a capacity of

150,000 gallons. In April, the U.S. Army

Corps of Engineers approved a grant to

cover 75 percent of the cost to erect a new

tower. The estimated cost of the project is

$1.37 million which means the grant would

Trinity UMC Women publish special cookbook

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

Looking to make something good to eat?

Look no further than “Food for the Soul,” a

new cookbook created by the women of Trinity

United Methodist Church in Lilly

Chapel.

The 200-page cookbook contains recipes

for everything from soups and salads to

main dishes and desserts. Among the many

gems are: “Scalloped Chicken,” the signature

dish of church dinners past; “Fitzger-

resenting British soldiers of the late 18th

century.

Some of the demonstrations are interactive.

For example, visitors can try their

hand at running the rope making machine.

They also can try throwing a tomahawk at

a wood block target. As for children’s games,

young visitors can try playing naughts and

crosses, a game that is similar to tic-tac-toe,

nine pins which has similarities to bowling,

or graces, a catch-and-throw game.

Music is on the schedule, too. The

Springfield Dulcimer Club will perform

ald Birthday Cake,” a banana

cream cake that’s a family favorite;

and all sorts of punch possibilities,

including “Pink Punch”

and “Red Satin Punch.”

The recipes come from a combination

of sources, and that’s what

makes the cookbook special. In addition

to soliciting recipes from

current church members and their

families, organizers took a trip

down memory lane.

“At one time, there used to be

three separate churches—one in Big

Plain, one in Georgesville, and one

in Lilly Chapel. The pastor would

rotate among the churches,” said

Kathy Conner, a member of the

Trinity United Methodist Women.

“The ladies in each of the churches

made cookbooks, then after all the

churches came together as one at

Lilly Chapel, they made another

cookbook. We thought it would be

nice to pick some of the recipes

from the older cookbooks to include

in our new one.”

Then, they decided to take

things a step further. Tim Wilson

of Wilson Printing & Graphics,

the London company that published

the new cookbook, suggested

the organizers include a

memorial section featuring the

recipes and photos of church mem-

bers who have passed on.

“It is such a wonderful tribute

to these people. It just makes the

cookbook rather special,” Conner

said.

The cookbook also includes a history

and photos of the church, cooking

tips, a weights and measures

list, household tips and an index.

The recipe sections include appetizers

and beverages, breads and rolls,

cookies and candies, desserts, main

dishes, relishes and jellies and miscellaneous,

soups and salads, vegetables

and side dishes.

Conner said the project was a

group effort by the women of the

church. She made special mention

of church organist Mary Lynn

Carothers and her daughter, Kara

Elsberry, who worked behind the

scenes to pull everything together.

“It’s been a blessing. People are

enjoying it. Families are looking

back at recipes and pictures of

their loved ones. It’s just really

special, I think,” Conner said.

“Food for the Soul” is available

for purchase. The cost is $20. Anyone

interested in buying a copy

The final engineering study for the project

Stop signs and crosswalks

Council unanimously approved installation

of stop signs at two intersections that

currently do not have stop signs—Friend and

Market streets and Jefferson and Market

streets—as well as one on the alley between

the Tri-County Fire Department station and

the Sunoco gas station, to take the intersection

from a three-way stop to a four-way stop.

farm equipment, the blacksmith shop, and

the caboose and train station.

Byrd said Pioneer Days is one of the many

ways the Madison County Historical Society

reaches out to the community to share information

about the county’s heritage.

“It is an all-volunteer effort. We just

want to teach history and what life was like

back on the frontier of Ohio,” he said.

Society” on Facebook.

this,” Drake said about the sign placement.

This is one of many measures council’s

street committees are making to improve

safety around town. Rebecca Brown, who

lives outside the village limits but spends a

lot of the time in the village for her children’s

activities, had another suggestion.

She said she would like to see crosswalks

(paint, lights, and signage) in the main

square in downtown Mount Sterling.

“We have a very cute, quaint little town,

but we get a lot of traffic,” she said.

Drake said the street committee agrees

with Brown and has discussed the need for

crosswalk upgrades. He said the issue will

be on the agenda at the committee’s next

meeting set for 8 a.m. Oct. 5 in council

chambers at town hall.

VVA celebrates 25th anniversary

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

The local Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 746

was chartered 25 years ago. To celebrate the anniversary,

the chapter is hosting an open house for all Vietnam-era

veterans and members of the Associates of the

Vietnam Veterans of America.

“The open house is for companionship and a time to

talk,” said Dave Cunningham, VVA 746 commander

and charter member.

The celebration is scheduled for Sept. 25 starting at

1 p.m. at Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 7005, 1 Veterans

Way, West Jefferson. Barbecue will be served. Admission

is free.

Chapter 746 was established to give recognition to

Vietnam-era veterans, as well as opportunities for them

to be involved in the community. In the early years, the

chapter had a color guard and chapter members would

speak to students at schools.

These days, members decorate veterans’ graves prior

to Memorial Day each year at Somerford Township, St.

Patrick Catholic and Oak Hill cemeteries. They also collect

worn and tattered American flags and hold an annual

flag disposal ceremony in the fall.

The chapter has 10 to 15 dedicated members and is

open to more members. Membership applications will

be available at the 25th anniversary celebration. A life

membership costs $50. The chapter meets monthly at

various veterans organization posts around Madison

County.

and the same number of students with special needs. Mitchell also

applauded Norwood’s latchkey program.

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

the ESC, our commitment is to serve the needs of our districts.”

Jefferson Local Superintendent William Mullett said the ESC is

helping the district provide services for gifted students. He also

pointed out that, over the last several years, ESCs across the board

were hit with cuts and forced to stretch dwindling dollars for services

for districts under their prevue.

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

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

In regular action, the school board accepted retirement requests

from Jeri “Bambi” Keckley, secretary at Norwood, and Mark

Staffan, a teacher at Norwood. Nick Houk was hired on a one-year

extracurricular contract as the high school/middle school assistant

athletic director, and Cherri Schneider was hired as the athletic

site manager on an as-needed basis.

Bigger haunted house needs more volunteers

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

Mount Sterling’s Haunted House will be

bigger and better than ever this year. With

that comes the need for more volunteers.

“Last year, on average, it took 21 people

at any given time to run the haunted house.

So, you can imagine, we’re three times as

big now. It’s going to take more,” said Tom

Corbin, past master of Mount Sterling Masonic

Lodge 269, host of the haunted house.

Organizers invite anyone interested in

volunteering to attend a meeting at 1 p.m.

Sept. 25 at the lodge, 54 N. London St., or

to call Corbin at (614) 530-3132. Volunteers

are needed to serve as actors, work concessions,

and do other tasks, such as help

younger patrons walk through the house.

This year’s Haunted House dates and

times are Oct. 28-29 from 4-10 p.m. and

Oct.. 30 from 2-4 p.m. Admission is free; donations

are accepted. The spooky spectacular

features activities both inside and

outside the lodge. Children’s games, food,

and a deejay are part of the fun outside on

the street. Creepy characters and scary

scenes are what’s happening inside.

“We have a completely different floor

plan than before,” said Corbin, noting this

is the third year for the event. “People will

go through the main lodge, exit out the back

to go through the corn maze, then go back

into another part of the building and finish

out front.”

Among the new additions to the fright

fest are a zombie-infested swamp and a

room full of lasers.

In conjunction with the haunted house,

the Mount Sterling Chamber of Commerce

is holding a costume contest on Oct. 30 at

the lodge. The children’s category is scheduled

for 2:30 p.m. followed by the adults at

3 p.m. The Chamber also is sponsoring the

children’s games throughout the weekend.

Because some of the activities take place

on the street in front of the lodge, Corbin requested

that village council approve closing

the road for the event. At their Sept. 12

meeting, council voted 5-1 to close London

Street from Houston and Church streets to

Main Street from 5 p.m. Oct. 27 (the day before

the event) to 6 p.m. Oct. 30.

Council member Joyce Phillips cast the

“no” vote on the road closure. During discussion

prior to the vote, she said several residents

complained last year about the lack of

detour signage guiding motorists, especially

semi-truck drivers, around the closure. She

also expressed concern about accessibility

for Sunday morning services at a church in

the area.

Council member Becky Martin said the

village is responsible for posting appropriate

signage. She acknowledged that detour signage

was needed. She noted that the Madi-

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

the church crowd on Sunday as

site during the event.

BARKER

Debra Jean Barker “Deb” passed away peacefully in

her sleep on Sept. 6, 2022, in Mount Sterling, Ohio, at

the age of 62. Deb was born on Aug. 6, 1960, in Kalamazoo,

Mich. She was one of four siblings born to Robert

and Mary (Bebee) Jeffries and one of eight siblings

raised by Robert and Betty Jeffries.

Deb was known by everyone as a hard worker

throughout her life in both Allegan, Mich., and Ohio, and

was a life-long animal lover. Her most recent fur babies

were two kitties named Muffin and P.I.T.A, who she

adored. One of her favorite hobbies, needlework, proved

to be one of her greatest talents. She enjoyed crocheting,

knitting, and sewing for family and friends. She loved

making baby blankets and Christmas tree skirts, along

with different curtains for the different holiday seasons.

In the little free time she had, Deb liked reading novels,

enjoyed movies like “Steel Magnolias,” and more recently

had gotten “hooked” on the TV show

“Yellowstone.” She will always be remembered for her

love of watching “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer”

with her only grandson, Gus.

She was known to be “sassy” at times and wasn’t shy

about neither her dislike of raisins and maraschino

cherries nor her love for all things related to homemade

soups. Everyone who knew Deb always kept their holiday

ham bones in their freezer, waiting for Deb to beg

them for their ham bones so that she could make the

world’s best homemade soup stock for boiled dinner. The

irony is that Deb would make her famous soup and then

give it back to the family and friends who had saved

their ham bones. Even her son-in-law said she made the

best homemade soup stock and would always call her

for her special recipe.

Deb was passionate about 80s music and enjoyed

quirky, witty facts about 80s bands. She passed her love

for music on to her daughters and was known to quiz

them about tiny details which always ended in the three

of them breaking out in laughter.

Above all, Deb loved being a mother and grandmother.

Throughout her life, she demonstrated the ethics of hard

work, the value of life-long friendships, and the promise

of unconditional love for her family. She was generous,

giving, and kind to everyone she would meet.

Deb was preceded in death by: her biological mother;

father, Robert Jeffries; and siblings, Fred Jeffries and

Michael Jeffries. Deb is survived by: her mother, Betty

Jeffries; siblings, Patricia Lambes, Renee (Brad) Tyler,

Billy Joe (Basil) Kidwell, Rhonda (Phil) Madalinski,

Melodie (Jim) Davis; daughters, Crystal (Jason) Lung,

Julia Barker; grandson, Augustus Alan Lung; and former

spouse, Barry Barker.

A special thanks to Sammy Boyd who has been supportive

during this time of Deb’s passing. Also, thank

you to all of her friends and various co-workers in both

Michigan and Ohio who were always supportive, encouraging,

and reliable. Deb spent so much of her life

working that her co-workers became like family to her.

She especially enjoyed her time working at Mahle Behr

and Perrigo, Inc. and the relationships she had built

with her many colleagues.

As an expression of sympathy, memorials or donations

can be sent to Porter Tidd Funeral Home in care

of Crystal Lung and Julia Barker. Deb will be laid to

rest in Evergreen Cemetery in Bloomingdale, Mich.

Arrangements were handled by Porter-Tidd Funeral

Home, Mount Sterling. Please visit www.portertiddfuneralhome.com

ENGLE

Shawn W. Engle, 49, of London died on Sept. 6, 2022,

in his residence. Born on March 23, 1973, in Columbus,

he was a son of Wayne M. and Nora (Burch) Engle.

Shawn graduated from West Jefferson High School

where he earned a varsity letter in wrestling. He then

played basketball, softball, and track and field at the

local, state, and national levels of the Special Olympics.

Shawn had worked professionally as an assembly line supervisor

for MATCO. He enjoyed watching the Bengals

and would always call his brothers following every game,

this year! Shawn always had a radiant personality and,

above everything else, he loved his family dearly.

PAGE 6 - MADISON MESSENGER - September 18, 2022

A parable for today:

“Tall timber stood here once, here on a corn belt farm along the

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

the loam for a grip and a hold against windstorms. Then the axmen came

and the chips flew to the zing of steel and handle—the lank rail-splitters

cut the big ones first, the beeches and the oaks, then the brush. Dynamite,

wagons, and horses took the stumps—the plows sunk their teeth

in—now it is first class corn land—improved property—and the hogs

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

improved farmland along the

Monon corn belt, on a piece of

Grand Prairie, to remember once it

had a great singing family of trees.”

Those words were penned by

Carl Sandburg in 1922 in his

poem “Improved Farm Land.”

This was life at the turn of the 20th century. Forests

gave way to farm land as a growing nation continued to

push its boundaries into areas once populated with

mighty timbers.

Within a few short years, the dominance of rural

America was quickly usurped by the lure of city life and

industrial progress. Farm lands giving way to streets

and towns, trains rolling across the landscape, cars

belching out fumes and, in the air, birds on the precipice

of losing their supremacy.

Turn the clock ahead 100 years into the future–our

present–and borrowing liberally from Sandburg, albeit

with a few tweaks, this is today as I look out the living

room window of my Hamilton Township home: Improved

farm land stood here once, here where concrete

bunkers now house the trappings of 21st century life

along the Chesapeake and Ohio train track. Here the

roots of corn, wheat, and soybeans dug their runners

deep into the soil for a grip and hold against drought

and groundhogs. Then the developers came and the asphalt

poured hot in the summer like a black river of

tar–for the cars that brought the people to work in the

warehouses to satisfy the insatiable hunger of consumers

across the land. Concrete, asphalt, and trucks

covered the crops and made an early grave of farm land

that once fed the hungry. Exhaust now perfumes the air

where corn stocks stood board straight in military rows

leading to the horizon. It would come hard now for this

1,000-acre plot of concrete bunkers along the railroad,

on a piece of the Ohio heartland, to know it once held

the heart of family farms.

According to Ohio lore, at one time a squirrel could

hop from a tree at Lake Erie and never touch the ground

until it reached the Ohio River. This was the world first

pictured in Sandburg’s “Improved Farm Land.” While

the poet questions the improvement of land where trees

places

Linda Dillman

are uprooted and replaced with

fields of tilled soil, it still remains

within the natural world.

There is nothing natural

about warehouses, diesel

fumes, and high wattage lights

creating an artificial noon at

midnight.

This is our “Improved Farm

Land” where the trees are but a

memory and the sun kisses

pavement, not soil. This is our

legacy, our homage to the growing

need to feed a machine consuming

rural plots, parcels, and

acres in the name of bigger and

better cars, clothing, and technology.

Progress is inevitable and people need jobs, but how

many warehouses does it take before the Big Bang of

consumerism begins to implode on itself? Retail and

commercial arms continue to spiral outwards, but vacant

shells of stores and warehouses gather dust as economic

inertia changes with the times.

Do we really need more shopping centers and the

complexes that support them? When will we reach the

black hole of development where improved farm land

gets pulled into a vortex so strong, there is no more to

support what we really require?

Rural homes and family farms perched on the border

of big cities are aging dinosaurs as municipal boundaries

and borders swallow up land.

Whether through threats of eminent domain, aging

owners, or the lure of offers too lucrative to pass up,

houses are plowed under, like the crops that once covered

the terrain. Their existence masked by bulldozers

and plastic drainpipes resculpting the landscape as

workers in yellow jackets hoist signs stopping motorists

while massive earth movers crisscross the roadway.

Will our “improved farm land” be as sad a legacy as

Sandburg’s was to him? Time will tell.

Linda Dillman is a Messenger staff writer.

Funds go to PC fire district

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine announced on Sept. 12

the first round of funding to be awarded to local first responders

as part of the new Ohio First Responder Recruitment,

Retention and Resilience Program.

A total of $1.67 million is being distributed to 26

agencies to help them support the wellness needs of law

enforcement officers, dispatchers, firefighters, paramedics,

and emergency medical technicians (EMTs).

Pleasant Valley Joint Fire District, which serves the

Plain City area, is among the agencies receiving firstround

funding. The fire district is receiving $45,050 for

a wellness and fitness initiative focused on medical examinations,

fitness, rehabilitation and behavioral

health.

“Our first responders face the daily challenge of providing

the highest level of response and care to Ohioans

during traumatic circumstances, having little to no time

to effectively process the stress brought on by these situations,”

DeWine said. “We created this grant program

to help our first responders take care of themselves so

that they can continue taking care of others."

The Ohio First Responder Recruitment, Retention,

and Resilience Program, administered by the Ohio

Emergency Management Agency, is offering a total of

approximately $75 million in funding for initiatives that

support wellness programs addressing the following:

mental, physical, and emotional health issues unique to

first responders; recruitment and retention efforts to restore

workforce levels; onboarding and training costs;

and explorer programs to engage young adults about

first responder careers.

Although this is the first round of funding to be

awarded to local first responder agencies as part of this

program, approximately $1.3 million was awarded to

several statewide service providers in June.

The program is funded as part of the $250 million in

American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding that

DeWine and the Ohio General Assembly dedicated to

first responders last year to help counter various pressing

issues exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, including

increased stress and decreased staffing levels.

DeWine also has placed enhanced focus on the wellness

of first responders through the creation of the Ohio

Office of First Responder Wellness within the Ohio Department

of Public Safety. The new statewide office focuses

exclusively on the well-being of first responders

and provides specialized support and training to help

emergency-response agencies proactively address posttraumatic

stress and other traumas caused by factors

that are unique to first-responder careers.

Farm Science Review marks 60th anniversary

The diamond anniversary of Farm Science

Review is on the horizon as the annual

farm show is set to celebrate 60 years of research,

advancement and education Sept.

20-22 at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center,

135 State Rte. 38, near London.

“Farm Science Review is a critical component

of our land-grant mission to provide

research-based information and practical

education to the people of Ohio and beyond,”

said Cathann A. Kress, Ohio State’s vice

president for agricultural administration

and dean of the College of Food, Agricultural,

and Environmental Sciences

(CFAES). “We are proud to be the home of

the Farm Science Review, a robust show

demonstrating the college’s research, and

we look forward to carrying out our landgrant

mission through the show in its next

60 years.”

At the review grounds, more than 2,100

acres are dedicated to research, and 600 of

those acres are dedicated to field demonstrations

at the show. So, attendees can be

sure they will find something to learn more

about at the Farm Science Review. An opportunity

unique to Farm Science Review

from other national farm show experiences

is being able to witness corn and soybean

harvesting demonstrations each of the three

days of the show.

“For six decades, Farm Science Review

has offered a gathering place to showcase

products, services and education to the public

to improve profitability, sustainability

and excitement for future possibilities,” said

Nick Zachrich, Farm Science Review manager.

“As Farm Science Review reaches this

milestone for the 60th edition of bringing

the industry together, there is a lot of optimism

that the next 60 years will be full of

new practices and technology that could be

displayed at Farm Science Review this September,”

Zachrich added.

Livestock producers, row crop farmers

and avid gardeners will find a plethora of

educational opportunities at this year’s

show, including exhibits ranging from livestock

to electric tractors, tractor improvements

and educational sessions hosted by

Ohio State University Extension personnel.

“OSU Extension’s educational components

at the Farm Science Review make our

farm show different than others,” said Sam

Custer, interim assistant director for agriculture

and natural resources. “The focus on

education makes this a must-attend show.”

“This show also demonstrates the ability

of our Extension professionals to conduct research

and collaborate directly with producers

as well as suppliers to improve product

outputs, basic knowledge, and profits for

all,” added Jacqueline Kirby Wilkins, associate

dean and director, OSU Extension.

Tickets for the 2022 Farm Science Review

are available to purchase online and at

Extension offices and select agribusinesses

across Ohio and Indiana. More information

can be found at fsr.osu.edu.

Farm Science Review is hosted by the

College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental

Sciences at The Ohio State University.

Marketplace Pavilion highlights local producers

For the first time ever, Farm Science Review

will feature the Marketplace Pavilion,

a point-of-sale area dedicated to local producers

of agricultural goods.

“We see this as an opportunity to support

local farm economies,” said Nick Zachrich,

Farm Science Review manager. “It’s our

hope that the Marketplace Pavilion will

allow producers to not only market their

products to show visitors but also the many

local and regional grocery retailers in the

area.”

Direct marketing of produce and other

agricultural products continues to be an important

sales outlet for producers across the

state. Both individuals and retailers will be

able to source quality local products from

the Marketplace Pavilion exhibitors.

“We know that most of these producers

don’t have the same marketing budget as a

global equipment manufacturer, so the Marketplace

Pavilion will give them a dedicated

space at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center

to market their unique goods to our show

visitors,” said Zachrich.

Lacie Evans, small business owner of

Heifer Please Co., is looking forward to networking

and promoting her cattle and western

lifestyle-related products at the

Marketplace Pavilion.

“I was a 4-H and FFA kid, and I remember

my favorite thing was going to Farm Science

Review, even as a college student and

now as an adult,” Evans said. “My brand is

geared toward those in the agricultural community,

and I’m excited to give back to the

community I love so much.”

Producers interested in becoming Marketplace

Pavilion exhibitors at the 2022

Farm Science Review can contact Nick

Zachrich at zachrich.13@osu.edu or (614)

292-4278 for more information.

Farm Science Review is hosted by The

Ohio State University’s College of Food,

Show hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sept. 20-

Avid supporters inducted into Hall of Fame

They say it takes a village, and The Ohio State University

Farm Science Review is no exception. This year, the

Review inducted three individuals who have been avid

supporters of the show in a multitude of capacities into its

Hall of Fame. Chuck Gamble, Bill Phillips and Bob

Zachrich were recognized as the 2022 honorees at a private

event on Aug. 17.

Chuck Gamble–DeGraff, Ohio

Chuck Gamble has a long-standing history with the

Review and the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental

Sciences (CFAES) as a whole.

“I was a student employee for Farm Science Review,”

Gamble said.

After college graduation, Gamble spent three years as

an OSU Extension educator in Logan County before returning

to the Review in 1995 as the assistant manager.

“I started as assistant manager, and I was in that role for

nine years before spending 13 years as the manager of the

show.”

For Gamble, the highlight of his career was the 2008

show.

“Probably one of my favorites was the year Hurricane

Ike hit. That was when you saw agriculture come together,”

he said.

The effects of Hurricane Ike set in on Sunday, and by

Tuesday, Gamble said you could hardly tell any damage

had been done by a storm of that magnitude.

“We literally transformed from a disaster into a show,”

Gamble said. “I had exhibitor after exhibitor asking how

they could help, and I told them to check on their fellow

exhibitors.”

Gamble reminisces about the time he spent working

for the Review and attributes much of the show’s success

to those with whom he worked.

“It isn’t the manager. It takes major

teamwork between paid staff and volunteers

to pull that event off,” he said.

Gamble recently celebrated his retirement

after serving CFAES for a combined

32 years in various positions. He and his

wife, Diana, reside in DeGraff, Ohio.

Bill Phillips–Hilliard, Ohio

Bill Phillips is the chief relationship

officer for the Office of Technology and

Digital Innovation at The Ohio State University.

Phillips has been with the university

since 2006, and his work with the

Review began in 2010 with the mission of

bringing internet to the show.

According to Phillips, the initial challenge

and question to be answered was,

“How do you get internet out there?”

“Chuck [Gamble] and I lived through

the pain of many farm shows where this

stuff didn’t work,” he said.

Phillips is the man who “brought the

Farm Science Review into the 21st Century,”

according to fellow Hall of Fame inductee,

Chuck Gamble.

The feat of bringing internet to the

Molly Caren Agricultural Center and also

providing service to OSU Extension offices

across the state can be credited to

the hard work and efforts of Phillips.

He and his wife of 44 years, Cathy, reside

in Hilliard, Ohio.

Bob Zachrich–Defiance, Ohio

Bob Zachrich, owner of United Seed

Associates, has served in many capacities

at the Review throughout his 49 years as

an exhibitor at the show.

“I’ve been going to the Farm Science

Review since 1972,” Zachrich said. “It

would be my 50th year, except I missed

2020. It’s really something that we have

only missed one show in the last 50

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

Chuck Gamble, Bob Zachrich and Bill Phillips.

years.”

Zachrich said he doesn’t really

have a favorite show because each

one has something to look forward

to.

“There is something different

and unusual every year, and that is

what I always look forward to,” he

said.

As a business owner, Zachrich

generously donated seed for years

to the show for the field demonstrations

and has been a large promoter

of the show to his customers. The

family business is supported by

Zachrich’s wife, Connie, and, at

times, his five children, 11 grandchildren

and three great-grandchildren.

The Review has served as a

great opportunity to gather dealers

and family for Zachrich over the

years, through plot work, field days

and other show support. His involvement

with the annual event

continues to this day.

Gamble, Phillips and Zachrich

have exemplified the attributes necessary

to grow the Review into the

world class farm show it is today.

Each honoree said that people and

hard work are what make the show

such a special experience and community

in which to be involved.

Review visitors get to see exhibitors in action

The Farm Science Review field demonstrations,

an attraction visitors flock to

watch each year, will feature the traditional

harvest demonstrations, as well as

new technology ready to make its debut at

the 2022 show.

“We are excited to provide visitors the

opportunity to see innovative, new technology

in action at this year’s show, which is

only fitting for the 60th anniversary of the

Farm Science Review,” said Nick Zachrich,

Farm Science Review manager. “We have

a diverse portfolio of exhibitors this year in

the ag technology space that visitors won’t

want to miss.”

Companies joining the field demonstrations

line-up this year include RYSE Aero

Tech and Agri Spray Drones.

RYSE Aero Tech is the manufacturer of

an ultralight electric vertical take off and

landing (eVTOL) vehicle, the RYSE

RECON. This vehicle will enable farmers

to have a bird’s eye view when crop scouting

their fields, eliminate compaction to

the soil while scouting, and get them from

point A to Point B more quickly.

RYSE Aero Tech’s initial goal was to,

“bring flight to people with a purpose,” according

to RYSE Aero Tech CEO, Mick

Kowitz.

“We wanted to serve a market with a

need for an application like this where people

can use it in difficult terrain to be able

to scout crops or travel places and save

them time doing it,” he said.

Agri Spray Drones, the only company to

operate heavy drones as part of custom application

services, will be bringing its technology

to the Farm Science Review

demonstrations, as well. Visitors will get

to see drones capable of applying liquid or

granular products in action.

In addition to these new additions to

the field demo line-up, the traditional harvest

demonstrations will run every day of

the show:

Trotter Field Demonstrations

Tuesday-Thursday

12:30 p.m.—Tillage, strip-till, nutrient

application tillage, and ag innovations

1:30 p.m.—Harvesting of corn immediately

followed by soybeans

All Day—OLICA field drainage installation

Another exhibitor-favorite feature of

Farm Science Review is the Ride & Drive

area where Can-Am will offer test-driving

opportunities featuring its utility vehicles

designed for any farm terrain. Visitors will

have the opportunity to get inside the latest

models and drive through a test track.

(AT RIGHT) RYSE Aero Tech will showcase

its ultralight electric vertical take off

and landing vehicle during field demonstrations

at the Farm Science Review.

Agri Spray Drones will showcase their heavy drones during field demonstrations at the

Farm Science Review. The drones are capable of applying liquid and granular products.

Act, as amended; to be used for the following project(s):e

Project Name: Unincorporated Community of Summerford New Sanitary Sewer Collection System

Source of Federal Funds: Community Development Block Grant, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

Section 594.

Project Description: Construction of a sanitary sewer collection system and force main.

Multi-Year Project

Location: Community of Summerford, Somerford Township, Madison County, Ohio

Estimated Cost of Project: $4,175,300

FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT

Madison County has determined that the project will have no significant impact on the human environment.

Therefore, an Environmental Impact Statement under the National Environmental Policy

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

Review Record (ERR) which is available for review on the Madison County website at

https://www.co.madison.oh.us. The ERR may also be provided upon request electronically via email.

Please submit your request by U.S. mail to the Madison County Commissioners, 1 North Main Street,

London, OH, 43140 or by email to commissioners@madison.oh.gov.

PUBLIC COMMENTS

Any individual, group, or agency may submit written comments on the ERR to the Madison County

Commissioners by U.S. mail or email at the addresses above. All comments received before October

4, 2022, will be considered by Madison County prior to authorizing submission of a request for release

of funds. Comments should specify which Notice they are addressing.

ENVIRONMENTAL CERTIFICATION

Madison County certifies to the State of Ohio that Chris Wallace in his capacity as Chairman of the

Madison County Commissioners, consents to accept the jurisdiction of the Federal Courts if an action

is brought to enforce responsibilities in relation to the environmental review process and that

these responsibilities have been satisfied. The State of Ohio’s approval of the certification satisfies

its responsibilities under NEPA and related laws and authorities and allows Madison County to use

Program funds.

OBJECTIONS TO RELEASE OF FUNDS

The State of Ohio will accept objections to its release of funds and Madison County’s certification

for a period of fifteen days following the anticipated submission date or its actual receipt of the request

(whichever is later) only if they are on one of the following bases: (a) the certification was not

executed by the Certifying Officer of the Madison County Commissioners; (b) Madison County has

omitted a step or failed to make a decision or finding required by HUD regulations at 24 CFR part

58; (c) the grant recipient or other participants in the development process have committed funds,

incurred costs or undertaken activities not authorized by 24 CFR Part 58 before approval of a release

of funds by the State of Ohio; or (d) another Federal agency acting pursuant to 40 CFR Part 1504

has submitted a written finding that the project is unsatisfactory from the standpoint of environmental

quality. Objections must be prepared and submitted in accordance with the required procedures

(24 CFR Part 58, Sec. 58.76) and shall be addressed to Ohio Department of Development,

Office of Community Development at OCD@development.ohio.gov. Potential objectors should

contact the State of Ohio to verify the actual last day of the objection period.
