Vehicle crashes at Alum Creek Drive and I-270 are not

unusual.

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

help.

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

stayed stable.

“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.”

Hamilton Schools’

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

Readiness.

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

results are:

•Achievement — Three Stars

•Progress — Five Stars

•Gap Closing — Four Stars

•Graduation — Two Stars

•Early Literacy — Three Stars

•College, Career Workforce, and Military

Readiness — not rated until next year.

Obetz zoning issues

By Katelyn Sattler

Staff Writer

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

wood fence.

Sign issue

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

Memorial Auditorium.

“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 -

sound, lighting, whatever it took to make it

a state of the art facility to produce the

“Mr. Frazier put a tremendous

amount of work into it and we would

not have that facility without him.”

- Mark Tyler, superintendent

Hamilton Schools

best quality show. Mr. Frazier put a

tremendous amount of work into it and we

would not have that facility without him.”

“Everyone has that certain individual or

teacher - or maybe more than one teacher -

who inspires them to be their best and

overlooks their handicaps,” said Hamilton

Schools Board President Walley Obert.

“And what I witnessed at Mr. Frazier’s

Celebration of Life - if I have 5 percent of

the people who could say nice things about

me when it’s over that Mark had, then I

would have fulfilled my life. That man

inspired a tremendous amount of people.”

The district is working on obtaining the

appropriate signage for the Hamilton

Township High School auditorium and will

have the auditorium officially named by

January, 2023.

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.

Dr. Kelly

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

impacts.

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

branches.

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

Editor’s Notebook

But even a creature

of praying mantis’

capabilities can face a

struggle and need a

helping hand as I discovered

while walking

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

Rick

Palsgrove

praying mantis

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

www.columbusmessenger.com

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

mantis’ life.

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.

Messenger Newspapers.

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

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

Places

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.

Linda

Dillman

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 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.

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

food.”

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

2030.

“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.

About SWACO

SWACO serves Franklin County and

neighboring areas with solutions for solid

waste. It is one of 52 solid waste districts

created by the Ohio General Assembly in

1989.

Groveport’s 49th annual Apple Butter Day

By Rick Palsgrove

Managing Editor

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.

Blacklick Haunted Park

Groveport’s Blacklick Haunted Park

returns for its fifth year with a host of

ghouls, monsters, and other assorted

things that go bump in the night to give

visitors a Halloween fright.

The scary event, sponsored by the city

of Groveport and Groveport residents, will

be held Oct 14 and 15 from 7:30-11 p.m. A

special afternoon event for younger kids

will be held Oct. 15 from 1-4 p.m.

Blacklick Haunted Park is held in

Blacklick Park, 799 Blacklick St. (The

park is located at the eastern end of

Blacklick Street in Groveport.) Cost is $5

per person with proceeds going to

Groveport Madison Human Needs and the

Groveport Food Pantry. Organizers said

the night event on Oct. 14 and Oct. 15 is

very scary and parental discretion is

advised.

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

large area at the park’s shelterhouse and a

haunted trail filled with relentlessly scary

costumed monsters, as well as fearsome

scenes and eerie music.
