Vehicle crashes at Alum Creek Drive and I-270 are not
One particular crash stands out for Hamilton Township
Fire Department Captain John Blankenship, who lives
near this area. He had heard a lot of crashes there during
the 19 years he had lived in his house with his wife and
kids. This time, though, the scream was different. He came
out of his house and saw a young lady frantically pacing
around her car.
Blankenship took off running and jumped the fence to
The woman was pregnant and said her daughter was in
the backseat. Blankenship told her to sit down, not knowing
what kind of injuries she may have sustained.
She sat down in the backseat of another vehicle that
stopped to help, with the door open.
Blankenship asked a bystander to call 911. He
climbed into the backseat. A little girl, about 3-
years-old, had sustained a significant head injury
and was unconscious.
“I put her head in a neutral and inline position so
that she could breathe,” said Blankenship. “Another
bystander had reached in and I asked him to cut the
seatbelt for the car seat, which he did.”
As the medic crew rolled up, Blankenship and the
bystander took the car seat out.
“I was holding her and the bystander was pulling
the car seat,” said Blankenship. “We put it directly
into the on-scene medic, which was our medic.
I was off duty, so I jumped in with the crew in
my civilian clothes and we immediately took
off for Children’s Hospital. We ended up getting
her airway secured and dropped her off.”
Blankenship said her blood pressure
“She was a little elevated, but from a vital
standpoint, we put an Intraosseous access in her
(which is like an IV but is drilled into the bone),”
said Blankenship. “We just kind of treated her like
a trauma patient, which is to give her fluid and protect
her airway. So, we did all those things, dropped
her off, and really didn’t think that much about it.”
Approximately three or four years later, a lady
pushing a stroller with another little girl walking
next to her approached some Hamilton Township
firefighters and started to tell a story of how somebody
helped her and her daughter at a car accident
at Alum Creek and I-270 and that she never got a
chance to meet them or thank them. One of the
other captains pointed and said, “‘That’s the guy!’
“And so she explained to me that her daughter
was doing really well,” said Blankenship. “She was
doing well in school. She had a plate fit in her skull.
The doctors told her that she was very lucky to be
alive. She had to learn how to walk again, had to
learn how to communicate again, had to learn how
to eat on her own again. But she was doing very
well. She asked if she could take a picture and I was
like, yeah, sure! She said she had made a scrapbook
and that was the last piece of the scrapbook that she

Blankenship, Rob Mango, Matt Cantrell, Lt. Cameron Lowe, Tyler
Vorhees, Mike Riffle.
needed. She was trying to get a photo of the person who
had helped out. So it was nice. I got to give the little girl a
hug and send her on her way. Like I said, when through all
the deaths, through all the destruction, through all the
negative things that happen in this career, you carry a lot
of unwanted baggage. You see a lot of things that you don’t
want to see. So when those times get heavy and burdensome,
you have to be able to lean on something and it’s
those kinds of runs that help get me through.”
When asked what paramedics do until they have that
type of defining run, Blankenship said, “It’s not always
those big things. We’ve had guys here that on their off day
have gone to somebody’s house and noticed that there are
trees growing out of this elderly woman’s gutters and
weeds and everything they can’t get. On their own time,
they go over and grab ladder, go clean out their gutter, just
so this 87-year-old or 97-year-old female doesn’t have to
even think about doing it. It’s not always life saving.
Sometimes it’s just making a difference in somebody's life.
Just trying to be a positive influence, like going to Toucha-Truck.
At Z-Fest, letting kids climb on the truck and ask
questions and put on your gear. You’re building experience.
You’re building the things that matter and why you
do the job.”
State Report Card results
The Ohio Department of Education released its
newest version of the State Report Card, which moves
to a five-star rating system to represent student performance
measures in the following: Achievement,
Progress, Early Literacy, Gap Closing, Graduation;
and College, Career Workforce, and Military
The new star-ranking system generally equates to
earning three stars as meeting state standards, with
five stars represented as significantly exceeding state
standards and one star defined as needing significant
improvement. Unlike in previous years, there is no “A
to F” scale, nor is there an overall grade or score issued
for the school or school district.
Hamilton Township’s 2021-22 State Report Card
•Achievement — Three Stars
•Progress — Five Stars
•Gap Closing — Four Stars
•Graduation — Two Stars
•Early Literacy — Three Stars

Obetz zoning issues
By Katelyn Sattler
The Obetz Planning and Zoning
Commission approved allow a decorative
four foot fencing and variances to allow
decorative wood fencing.
Jon Martin of 1835 Hillcrest Avenue
came before the Planning & Zoning
Commission Sept. 14 to request a conditional
use permit and variance to replace
his four foot chain link fence that had been
accidentally damaged by Rusty’s Towing.
City zoning code prohibits chain link
fencing in the front yard. It also restricts
the height of front yard fencing to three
feet. All front yard fencing must be decorative.
Mayor Angela Kirk asked Martin if he
wanted to replace the chain link fence or
upgrade it. Kirk said she’d be okay with
Martin returning it to the original chain
link fencing since another entity caused
the damage. Martin said he’s fine upgrading
to the city’s code.
Kirk also asked Kristy Martin if she’d
rather replace the chain link fence with
another chain link fence. She expressed
interest in upgrading to a four foot decorative
Sign Vision Company requested a comprehensive
sign program and variance for
2400 McGaw Road.
The zoning code limits the number of
wall signs to one wall sign per wall face. It
also does not permit wall signs on wall
faces that don’t front a public right of way.
It also requires a comprehensive sign program
if two or more signs are proposed.
The applicant requested four wall signs
total. There are two wall signs on one wall
face; one wall sign on another face that
front a public right of way; the third wall
sign is on a side of the building that does
not front a public right of way.
Law Director Gene Hollins said it’s a
new tenant in the building and the company
has two lines of business, which is why
they need four signs.
“The signs are small for the scale,” said
Hollins. “But we have a pretty strict sign
code. We wanted to run this through and
make sure that you’re okay with four total
and that you got a chance to look at their
comprehensive sign package.”
The Planning and Zoning Commission
approved the request.

HTHS auditorium will be named for Frazier
The Hamilton Local School District
recently lost Mark Frazier, a retired
Ranger and community member.
Frazier was instrumental in the district’s
music and drama departments for
many years. He served as the Hamilton
Township High School band director for 31
years and as the district’s musical director
for 22 years. After retirement he continued
to serve as the creative director for the
high school musicals. He impacted many
lives in the district and community.
On Sept. 20, the Hamilton Schools
Board of Education voted unanimously to
name the Hamilton Township High School
auditorium after him: The Mark Frazier
“There was a lot of interest in doing
something to recognize Mark,” said
Hamilton Schools Superintendent Mark
Tyler during the board meeting. “There
was some discussion about naming the
play after Mark, but we ultimately settled
on the auditorium. Everything in that
auditorium was designed with a purpose -

“Everyone has that certain individual or

Schools Board President Walley Obert.
“And what I witnessed at Mr. Frazier’s
Celebration of Life - if I have 5 percent of

would have fulfilled my life. That man

WHAT IS GUM DISEASE?
Most people don’t realize how
common periodontal disease (also
known as gum disease) is. Three
out of every four adults have some
form of the disease. In its early
reversible stage, called gingivitis,
gums can become red, swollen and
bleed easily. When the disease
progresses to the bone, which
supports the teeth, it is called
periodontitis. At this point it can
cause irreversible damage. In the
advanced stages of the disease, the
bone and soft tissues which
support the teeth are destroyed
and this may cause the teeth to
become loose, fall out, or have to
be removed by a dentist.
Except in rare cases, gum disease
can be prevented by thorough
daily plaque removal by brushing
and flossing, eating a balanced diet
and by regularly visiting your
dentist for professional cleanings.
When plaque is not removed, it
hardens into a rough porous
deposit called tartar. Tartar is what
causes most of the eventual
damage and can only be removed
by a dental professional.
Prepared as a public service
to promote better dental health.

Small decisions and timing can have big
Recently out of the blue I decided to take a
day off on a beautiful September Tuesday.
A mid-week day off is special because it
feels like one is playing hooky while everyone
else is working. There I was, just hanging out
while postal carriers delivered mail, workers
replaced sidewalks, and people busily going
about their day.
A day off allows one to have a slower pace
to notice things. For example, I sat under my
dogwood tree in the backyard and marveled
at the fleeting sunlight illuminating the red
and gold leaves still hanging from the tree’s
That slower pace also enabled me to see a
praying mantis in distress.
The praying mantis is one of the coolest
insects in the bug world. Not only do they
look great, but they are to be admired for
their ability to catch prey. They can remain
still for long periods of time waiting for
unsuspecting prey to happen by or they can
slowly, stealthily stalk their meal and then
strike quickly and efficiently.
A cosmic day off
But even a creature
of praying mantis’
capabilities can face a
struggle and need a
helping hand as I discovered
around on my day off.
As I strolled along,
a slight twitching
movement caught my
eye at the edge of the
sidewalk where the
concrete meets the
grass. I bent down for
a closer look and saw a
trapped on its back with its hind legs entangled
with a small bit of stringy plastic.
At first I reached down to free him and set
him right, but then I thought how terrifying
it would be to be trapped and have a giant
reach toward you with hands that could
crush you in an instant.
So instead I picked up a small twig and let
the praying mantis grab it with its forelegs. I
lifted him up and placed him in the grass
upright by a tree.
Once there he released the twig, which I
then used to gently unravel the stringy plastic
from his hind legs. He stood still while I
did this and was soon free. I told him to,
“Carry on,” and left him there in the safety of
the grass and tree cover to live his praying
Later in the day as I thought about this
encounter, I pondered this question: what if,
in the whole scheme of things, the purpose for
me taking a day off was not to relax and
recharge? What if, instead, my decision to
take the day off came about because the cosmos
needed me to be on that sidewalk at that
time and place to save that praying mantis?
A small act for me, but a monumental and
timely one for the praying mantis.
Thoughts like this keep life interesting.

The changing face of the land
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
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
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
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 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

SWACO working to reduce food waste
As inflation increases food prices,
SWACO is renewing efforts to help families
save money and reduce their reliance on
the landfill by helping them avoid throwing
leftovers and other food in the trash.
“We may not be able to control rising
gas and food prices,” said Joe Lombardi,
SWACO’s executive director. “But each of
us can commit to making the most of our
resources and ease the burden felt by our
family and the environment when food
waste is sent to the landfill.”
Reducing food waste remains an important
issue for central Ohioans. In a public
opinion poll conducted earlier this year, 83
percent of residents were concerned with
the amount of food wasted every day in
central Ohio. A 2019 Waste
Characterization Study, published by
SWACO, documented that nearly a million
pounds of food arrives at the county
landfill every day, and a large portion of
that food comes from households.
Kyle O’Keefe, SWACO’s director of
innovation and programs, said the average
Franklin County family is spending
nearly $2,000 a year on food they purchase
but never eat.
“Leftovers and spoiled produce make
up the majority of what individuals throw
out,” said O’Keefe. “Families can easily
save money and keep unnecessary food
waste out of a landfill by making small
improvements in the way they manage
SWACO’s Save More Than Food
(SMTF) website offers ideas on making
those simple and intentional steps part of
anyone’s daily routine:
• Fridge Night prompts families to collect
leftovers and look for creative ideas to
bring them together. It also lets families
properly freeze and date any leftovers a
family can’t use.
• Label foods and leftovers that need to
be eaten soon or place them within eyesight.
• Make leftovers new again by visiting
SaveMoreThanFod.org to find a leftover
recipe to demonstrate or try.
• Shopping more frequently and with a
list reduces cost and waste. Creating meal
plans makes those trips much easier.
• Proper food storage allows herbs,
milk, cheese, fruits, and vegetables to
have a much longer life in refrigerators.
SMTF pilot programs are already paying
dividends, reducing household food
waste by more than 20 percent in areas
where food waste drop-off sites and educational
programs that encourage food waste
prevention are available.
The Central Ohio Food Waste Initiative
published a food waste action plan in May
2019; it has 20 specific initiatives for preventing
food waste, rescuing and redistributing
edible food, and recycling food
through composting and other technologies.
Overall, the SMTF campaign hopes to
help reduce food waste by 50 percent by
“When families come together and use
food responsibly, it creates better health,
environmental, and economic outcomes,”
said Lombardi. “We can blaze a trail toward
a healthier future, one bite at a time.”
Residents and businesses alike can
visit savemorethanfood.org for information
to help reduce food waste at home and
work The site also features an online food
waste quiz and shareable resources for coworkers,
students, and communities.
About Save More Than Food
Save More Than Food was developed in
2019, following several months of collaboration
among more than 100 partners in
the Central Ohio Food Waste Initiative
collective. Initiative members created the
Central Ohio Food Waste Action Plan
which includes 20 solutions for reducing
food waste, including the creation of a consumer
action and education campaign.

Groveport’s 49th annual Apple Butter Day
By Rick Palsgrove
Groveport’s traditional fall festival, Apple Butter Day, will celebrate
its 49th year and will be held on Oct. 8 from 10 a.m. to 6
p.m. in Heritage Park, 551 Wirt Road in Groveport.
“Apple Butter Day is an annual tradition that brings the community
together to celebrate Groveport’s heritage and reflect on
simpler times,” said Groveport Community Affairs Director
Jessica Wyke. “What makes it a special event is the educational
aspect for younger generations with pioneer demonstrations, a
primitive play area, antique tractors, and the opportunity to experience
apple butter being made the old-fashioned way.”
You may purchase a jar of apple butter for $7 per jar or get a
slice of bread with apple butter for $1. Cash only.
Music at the festival includes Wade & Darr from 10-11:30 a.m.,
Sodbusters from 12:15-1:30 p.m., Pickin’ Pair from 2-3:30 p.m.,
and Barefoot McCoy from 4-5:15 p.m.
There will be a performance by the Wagnalls Community
Theater on stage from 5:30-6 p.m.
The day features homemade crafts, historical demonstrations,
hayrides, handmade crafts, pony rides, children’s activities, and
food vendors. There will also be a display of antique tractors.
The cane pole fishing derby for kids age 15 and under will be
held at Palm Pond from 10:30-11:30 a.m. (sign up at 10 a.m.). The
first 50 kids get to fish with a cane pole. Bait is provided.
Sharp’s Landing building
From 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. visit the Sharp’s Landing building
across Wirt Road from the log house and Heritage Park. The
Groveport Heritage Society reconstructed the 62x21 foot, one
story, brick, 19th century canal era building from original materials.
The building is believed to have been used as a smokehouse,
bakery, and ice house. It originally sat along the Ohio and Erie
Canal at the corner of Rohr and Pontius roads.

special afternoon event for younger kids
will be held Oct. 15 from 1-4 p.m.

the night event on Oct. 14 and Oct. 15 is
very scary and parental discretion is
However, the special afternoon session
for the younger kids on Oct. 15 will be a bit
less scary. Kids at this event must be
accompanied by a parent or guardian. The
first 200 kids at the Oct. 15 afternoon
event will receive a free goodie bag.
Blacklick Haunted Park consists of a
