Prairie adopts

property code

By Andrea Cordle

Westside Editor

According to Prairie Township

Administrator James Jewell, officials have

been discussing the idea of a property

maintenance code for several years.

“It is time to move forward,” said

Jewell.

At the Sept. 21 board meeting, township

trustees adopted a maintenance code

specifically for the exterior of commercial

and multi-family residential properties.

Multi-family residential properties contain

four or more housing units, like apartments

or condominiums. This code does

not include single-family residential units.

“There are a lot of deteriorating properties

or properties that are in rough shape,”

said Rod Pritchard, township trustee.

“Caught in the Act” on the Hilltop

Messenger photo by Dedra Cordle

Throughout the summer, local high school students and professional artists teamed up to design a new mural for the westside

community. Unveiled at a public dedication hosted by the Hilltop Arts Collective on Sept. 21, “Caught in the Act” features a group

of cats building a new community of homes for birds. Jeremy Jarvis, an instructor with the mural mentorship program ARtsway,

said that while the students wanted this piece to be “fun and whimsical,” they also wanted it to serve as a reminder that wonderful

things can happen in the world when people come together to help “other people who may not be quite like them.” This

piece, which is located at 3059 West Broad Street, has an augmented reality component that showcases the cats working on the

project and the grateful, albeit slightly suspicious, birds going into their new homes. Created by graphic designer Ariel Peguero,

it can be experienced by downloading the Artswalk app and visiting the public installation. Pictured here are the local high

school students and the ARtsway artists who worked on the project. From left to right in the front row are Verch Arellano, Isabella

Neuhard, Kadence Ruff, Quinn McGonigle, Valentine Tinney, Selina Nicklaus, Georgia Nicklaus, Sera Southworth and Miren

Southworth. (Not pictured are Solei Arellano and Taybriel Holliday.) Standing from left to right in the back are ARtsway artists

and instructor Jeremy Jarvis and Amanda Keeton.

Free lunch at Hilltop Methodist

The United Hilltop Methodist Church will host a

p.m. The church is located at 99 S. Highland Ave.

“There are particularly a lot of multi-family properties

that need to be cleaned up. This will allow the township

to enforce the code and bring property owners into

compliance.”

According to the property maintenance code, the

buildings must be structurally sound. This includes

foundations that are free of holes and cracks, proper

building drainage, intact doors and windows. The code

also addresses proper roofing, gutters, chimneys, and

porches. It covers the maintenance of Dumpsters, fencing,

and landscaping.

Jewell said the township has been dealing with

these properties as nuisance cases, where the township

would clean up the property and bill the property

owner or assess the fee to the property tax. This newly

adopted property maintenance code will include civil

fines.

“This is another tool in the toolbox,” said Jewell.

According to the legislation, any violation of the

code shall be punishable with an unclassified civil fine

of $250 for the first violation, $500 for the second violation

within one year, and $1,000 for the third violation

within one year. These amounts also include a filing

fee of $123. All the fines collected will be deposited

into the township’s general fund.

“The last thing we want to do is fine property owners,”

said Jewell. “We want to try to work with the

property owner first.”

Anyone who is given a violation notice can request

a hearing before an appeals board.

According to the township administrator, the zoning

department will enforce the property maintenance

code. It will not just be complaint-driven; zoning

employees will be looking for violations. Jewell said

there are currently four full-time employees in the zoning

department.

“There will be a learning curve,” said Jewell. “We

will monitor to see if we need more staff.”

The trustees believe this code will help alleviate

nuisance cases.

“We are trying to get a handle on the number of nuisance

cases that are coming before the board so that

we can implement fines as opposed to declaring nuisances,”

said Pritchard.

At the board meeting, the trustees had to review

and act on a few dozen nuisance cases, mostly involving

overgrown grass or weeds and trash and debris on

the property or by the Dumpster.

“There will be a lot less nuisance cases,” said

trustee Doug Stormont.

Pritchard added, “Hopefully, this will lead to a lot of

good things.”

The exterior property maintenance code will go into

effect near the end of October, but Jewell said full

enforcement will not begin until the start of 2023.

“We see this as an opportunity to educate property

owners,” said Jewell.

He said within the next few months, the township

will reach out to property owners, so they are aware of

the new code.

“We want to make sure everyone is on board,” said

Jewell.

Westside residents and groups take part in arts festival

From Sept. 16 through Sept. 18, thousands of people from across the region visited

Town Center Park in the city of Grove City for the 43rd annual Arts in the Alley

Music and Arts Festival. The popular event, which is sponsored by the Grove City

Area Chamber of Commerce, featured more than 30 artisans throughout the state

who set up booths for attendees to peruse their handcrafted wares and purchase

a gift or two, or maybe more, for themselves and others. Among the featured artists

making their debut at the festival was Galloway resident Scott Creed, seen here

making minor spacing adjustments to his cedar wood creations. Creed said he

started carving natural landscapes and making mirrors out of that type of wood

about five years ago.

614 Beautiful grant to shine a light on the Hilltop

By Dedra Cordle

Staff Writer

When Kayla Davis and Malik Moore

walk through their neighborhood on the

Hilltop, they see so much potential despite

the abundance of barren and blighted

spaces.

“We love our community but there are

areas out here that are in need of attention,”

said Davis.

“They’re in need of a lot more than just

attention,” Moore replied. “They are in

need of financial investment from the city

and there needs to be a buy-in from residents

who have felt neglected for so long.”

“We know there are so many creative

Moore. “But a lot of these people, these

Westside

and places within the Hilltop.

On Sept. 22, officials with the city of

Columbus launched a new program in partnership

with the Neighborhood Design

Center called 614 Beautiful.

“614 Beautiful is a grant program that

invites teams of neighborhood residents

and community organizations to come

together to submit their ideas for beautification

projects that would not only enhance

the aesthetics of their community but also

create a space that everyone can enjoy,”

said Lisa Snyder, project manager of the

Neighborhood Design Center.

Winning teams and organizations could

receive up to $10,000 in grant funding.

Some of the beautification projects listed

within the program overview include landscape

enhancements, placemaking signage,

pocket parks, public art and streetscape

improvements but it is not limited solely to

those suggestions.

“We have left a lot of the beautification

ideas deliberately vague because we truly

want to leave it open to what the community

wants to see,” said Snyder. “We didn’t

want to cap that creativity by saying, ‘You

can only do the projects that we have suggested.’”

Carla Williams-Scott, the director of the

city’s department of neighborhoods, said

that component is what makes this new

program so promising.

“It gives them an opportunity to put

things where the people want them to go

and not where the city thinks they should

go,” said Williams-Scott. “This is input that

will come directly from the residents and it

will be done by the residents within that

community.”

City councilwoman Lourdes Barroso de

Padilla agreed with her assessment.

“I envision this as an opportunity to

bring residents together so it really is

about people coming together and working

together and advocating for your community

and have this space be a place that is a

true point of pride,” she said.

“We want this program to fund a place

that feels like it is the center of the community

where community members come

together and build a community.”

Because there is a fiduciary element to

the 614 Beautiful program, neighborhood

teams that are comprised of individual residents

will have to be connected to local

non-profit organizations or stakeholders so

they can provide assistance with that

aspect. Moore and Davis said they are

working on a plan to help them do just

that.

“Several months ago, we started a

Breakfast at the Lodge

to benefit Special Olympics

The Westmeath Masonic Lodge #623 is

preparing breakfasts once a month to benefit

the Special Olympics. The public is

BOLO — a Be on the Lookout — for residents

and organizations and businesses in the

area who are working to make positive

change in the community,” Moore said. “We

went door-to-door and sent out surveys to

find them and we have at least 35 known

organizations or businesses that can provide,

and are willing to provide, help with

improvement ideas.”

Moore said they plan to make that list

available at the upcoming full commission

meeting scheduled for Oct. 4. They will

meet in-person at 6:30 p.m. at the Hilltop

Branch of the Columbus Metropolitan

Library, 511 S. Hague Ave. and also stream

their meeting on Facebook and YouTube.

Both Davis and Moore said they are

excited about the ideas that will come from

614 Beautiful and are hopeful there will be

some Hilltop teams that receive grant

funding through the citywide program.

“I am very excited but the proof will be

in the pudding,” said Moore. “Today is the

day it was announced but the proof will be

a year from now when we’ll see who actually

has received the funds and if they are

using it in a way that is bringing our community

together.”

Davis said that while she does not have

a preference with the beautification project

suggestions, she would like to see places

within the community where people can sit

and/or gather.

“We love seeing all of these murals but

there is not a seated space where you can

sit and enjoy looking at them (for long

stretches of time),” she said. “I want there

to be a space where people can actually

congregate and have a safe place to just be

able to enjoy the weather and enjoy being

outside and just enjoy one another’s company

while being ourselves.”

More information on the 614 Beautiful

program can be found at www.614beautiful.org.

The website goes over the finer

points of the program such as eligibility,

submission requirements, and design evaluation

criteria. There will also be a virtual

Q&A period from now until Oct. 14. The

first virtual session was held on Sept. 27

but additional sessions will take place on

Oct. 1 from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. and Oct. 5

from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. Snyder said 614

Beautiful representatives are always willing

to help provide additional assistance

via email or via phone.

All submissions are due on Nov. 4, 2022.

The award announcements are slated to

take place in early December with the project

implementation period taking place

throughout March and May of 2023.

SWCS right on target

with enrollment projections

www.columbusmessenger.com October 2, 2022 - WESTSIDE MESSENGER - PAGE 5

By Dedra Cordle

Staff Writer

South-Western City School officials

make a number of projections related to

student enrollment before the start of a

new school year. Not only do they estimate

what they believe the overall population of

the district will be, but they also have to

determine how many students they believe

will attend each level.

Should the district be inaccurate with

their projections, particularly if the actual

numbers fall well below their assumptions,

it could mean a loss in state and federal

funding as well as the relocation of dozens

of students to fill spacing gaps.

“That is why it is so incredibly important

that we get these figures right,” said

Deputy Superintendent Dr. Jamie Lusher.

When the actual enrollment numbers

came in at the start of the 2022-23 school

year, district officials gave a sigh of relief

at how accurate their projections were.

“We have a 99 percent accuracy rate,”

Lusher told the board of education at its

meeting in early September.

According to the numbers presented,

the district’s overall enrollment numbers

surpassed the initial projections.

There are currently 20,925 students

enrolled in the district: officials had projected

there would be 20,887.

Where the district saw an increase in

the student population was at the middle

and high school level. The middle level saw

an overall increase of seven students,

whereas the high school level saw an

increase of 111 students. There are currently

3,363 students enrolled at the district’s

five middle schools, and 6,712 students

enrolled at the district’s four high

schools.

Where the district saw a decrease in the

student population was at the elementary

and intermediate level. The elementary

level saw a decrease of 60 students, whereas

the intermediate level saw a decrease of

15 students. There are currently 7,602 students

enrolled at the district’s 16 elementary

schools, and 3,183 students enrolled at

the five intermediate schools.

Lusher said there were some notable

exceptions to those numbers.

Buckeye Woods Elementary and

Jackson Middle School each saw an

increase in their student population of 61

students and 39 students, respectively.

Prairie Lincoln Elementary and Galloway

Ridge Intermediate each saw a decrease in

their student population of 50 students and

39 students, respectively.

Lusher said that although their overall

numbers are stable, the district will be

monitoring the number of students exiting

the schools on the westside. She added that

those numbers could likely be attributed to

the development growth within the Grove

City area.

“That is something that we will be monitoring

but at this time those numbers are

pretty stable and that is a good thing,” she

said.

Because of the growth of the overall student

body population, the district has

expanded its student support services by

adding three counselors, seven social workers,

and nine student support liaisons at

the K-8 level.

In other district news, the board

approved a modification to the 2022-23

master calendar that will change a planned

in-session, out-of-session day. On Oct. 21,

school will now be out-of-session to allow

for a professional development day whereas

Oct. 14 will now be in-session. Oct. 21

has been designated as OSAPSE (the Ohio

Association of Public School Employees)

Day.

Hilltop History & Heritage

This is a photo from the 1960s of the Burger Chef

Restaurant, located at 3511 Sullivant Ave., on the south side

of the street between Demorest Road and Wilson Road. The

man standing in front of the restaurant is Richard Weirling,

the lead builder for Burger Chef. The business manager for

this location was Vincent Weirling. Burger Chef was an

American fast-food restaurant chain. It began operating in

1954 in Indianapolis, expanded throughout the United

States, and at its peak in 1973 had over 1,000 locations. In

1982, the owner, General Foods Corporation, divested itself

of the restaurant chain, gradually selling to the owners of

Hardee’s. The final restaurant to carry the Burger Chef name

closed in 1982. If you have a photo to share, contact Stacy

Commissioners still

pushing for more

westside recreation

By Hannah Poling

Staff Writer

David Hooie, neighborhood program coordinator for the city of

Columbus, attended the September meeting of the Westland Area

Commission to listen to ideas for a recreation center on the westside.

Hooie said he has been involved in Westland in some way for

more than 20 years.

“I do believe that you guys need some attention,” he said.

According to Hooie, there are several other area commissions

within the city that all have the same request. In his opinion, if all

three commissions were pulled together to request one central

location, it would make a stronger case than each commission

alone.

“If we get three commissions to all agree that they want this,

it’s more powerful,” said Hooie.

Janet Cahill, chair of the parks and recreation committee, said

that they have already reached out to the other commissions adjacent

to them to come to a meeting and see if they could combine

resources.

“They do not think that it’s in their best interest,” said Cahill.

Hooie suggested commissioners arrange a meeting with city’s

parks and recreation leaders.

Cahill said she has requested the parks department provide a

report on the park’s dedication funds.

According to Cahill, these funds have been accumulating since

1985 and she anticipated on the account having plenty of money

to invest in the recreation center.

Cahill said the commission’s parks and recreation committee

has talked to numerous individuals to determine a potential property

to build a recreation center. However, she said she spoke with

the parks and recreation deputy director who reported that the

city has no plans to build another recreation center.

“The bottom line was there will be no more recreation centers

built in the city of Columbus,” said Cahill.

The commissioners wants to make some progress, even if it’s

creating a park similar to Alkire Park.

Cahill and Hooie agreed that having a meeting with influential

people in the city may be of benefit.

“People higher up the food chain would be nice,” said commissioner

Nancy Day-Achauer. “We have talked to pretty much everyone

below on the food chain.”

Hooie said he would try to facilitate a meeting.

“I do think it needs to be brought to light,” he said. “I will bring

it up to my director.”

news and notes

Senior Services levy

Voters will decide on the proposed Franklin County Senior

Services levy renewal on Nov. 8.

The proposed five year tax levy renewal is for 1.75 mills, $0.175

per $100 of valuation, commencing in 2022. Officials state it is not

a tax increase.

The levy provides funding for Franklin County Senior Options

and its services designed to help seniors remain safely at home.

These services include meals-on-wheels, transportation to doctor

appointments, and emergency response buttons.

The existing senior services levy will expire at the end of 2022.

The senior levy is the main funding source for Senior Options programs.

PAGE 12 - WESTSIDE MESSENGER - October 2, 2022

In Entertainment

“Lou” is a compelling character thriller

More than a decade into her career as an actor,

Allison Janney finally started to receive some recognition

within the entertainment industry when she was

cast as C.J. Cregg, the savvy and quick-witted press

secretary in Aaron Sorkin’s television series “The West

Wing.”

Knowing they had a great actress on their hands

but not quite knowing what exactly to do with her, she

was promptly offered roles in a similar vein as her

famed characters from the now iconic show that had its

debut in the late 1990s. Despite the lack of original

offerings that were sent her way, Janney has managed

to consistently deliver great performances across a

range of genres throughout the years, proving that she

has the skill and the chops to overcome whatever box

Hollywood tried to fit her into.

In her latest film “Lou”, she kicks out that box,

throws it over some heads, and proceeds to strangle

people with it. And if you think I’m taking dramatic

license with the description, well, I am just a bit: Her

character much prefers other household items.

Directed by Anna Foerster and written by Maggie

Cohn and Jack Stanley, “Lou” is an action-thriller that

manages not to feel as if it is just another cog in the

revenge movie machine. With a focus on internal pain,

this Netflix original is more contemplative as it prefers

to take a deeper look into the consequences of one’s

action.

When the film begins, Lou (played by Janney) is

somewhat enjoying her solitary existence on an island

in the Pacific Northwest with her loyal companion Jax,

a very good boy who only gets scolded when he licks

the blood of the deer she kills for him. Even though her

devoted pup loves her to pieces, the first few minutes

establish that the humans do not feel the same way,

giving her a wide berth as she makes her way through

town. This is not to say that she immediately gives off

dangerous vibes, but more like “Watch out, here comes

that old grump that is likely to push you down if you

make too much noise — or small talk.” Essentially, her

inability to be personable makes the townsfolk uneasy,

so they keep it at a respectful distance.

As a way to make a little bit of extra money, Lou

rents a trailer to Hannah Dawson (Jurnee Smollett)

who is raising her young daughter Vee (Ridley Asha

Bateman) sans partner. Lou appears to care very little

for the duo, but she does offer a bit of sound, worldly

advice to Hannah after almost hitting her child with a

car — “The world’s not a playground. Teach your kid

how to take care of herself.”

During the interactions with Lou and a potential

paramour, it is made clear that she is recovering (hiding?)

from a dark past. Naturally, that dark and hidden

past springs back into the forefront when her violent

ex Philip (Logan Marshall-Green) kidnaps their

daughter during the most vicious storm the area has

After school snacks at local libraries

Columbus Metropolitan Library has once again

partnered with Children’s Hunger Alliance to provide

after-school snacks for children ages 1-18 at several of

its locations including:

• Franklinton Branch: Monday - Saturday: 3:30 to

4:30 p.m.

• Hilltop Branch: Monday - Friday: 3:15-3:45 p.m.

and Saturday: 2:15 - 2:45 p.m.

These locations were selected for the meal program

based on student need. A typical super-snack provided

seen in decades.

Since the film is set in the

1980s, Hannah rushes to Lou’s

place to use the phone and discovers

that not only is her line

down too, but she just interrupted

a suicide attempt.

Feeling as if there is way too

much going on, Hannah manages to rattle out what

happened and gives an abridged version of the criminality

of her ex-husband despite knowing that Lou

likely has other things on her mind. And although she

does — and although she states that she doesn’t care

too much about the kidnapping that took place — Lou

decides she wants to do everything within her power to

get Vee back safely to her mother.

As someone who presents themselves as the societal

version of an elderly woman — Lou’s hair is a deep gray

and her hands are slightly gnarled with arthritis —

Hannah is skeptical of her ability to help. But Lou

proves to be quite adept at tracking, even in the pouring

rain, and skillfully using her appearance to get the

drop on men working with Philip. Quickly, Hannah

comes to the startling realization that there is much

more to Lou than meets the eye, and how they are such

similar people despite living such dissimilar lives.

As I stated before, “Lou” is not a revenge thriller in

the traditional sense, instead focusing more on two

women with secret pasts bonding in a highly intense

setting. Although there are a few fight scenes that are

exciting and very well done (it has a particularly epic

battle that takes place toward the end), it largely

builds on the growing relationship between these

women who are filled with secrets and a determination

to try to make things right in the world.

While there were some issues with the plot — it has

a twist that I wasn’t particularly fond of — and while

some of the script could have been sent to the revision

workshop for another round of edits, overall “Lou” is a

compelling character thriller that is made extremely

watchable thanks in part to the chemistry of the two

most talented actresses working today. They propel

this movie, making you root for their characters and

their budding friendship every step of the way. It’s not

your typical action flick, but it’s a very good one,

nonetheless.
