The Ohio State Auditor’s Office is scheduled to release the village

of Mount Sterling from fiscal oversight, likely next month. This has

been more than five years in the making.

In June 2017, then Ohio Auditor Dave Yost placed the village in

a state of fiscal emergency due to substantial deficit fund balances.

The deficits were the result of corruption and theft in office on the

part of several former village officials and employees, including Joe

Johnson, former village administrator, who stole more than

$724,000 from the village between 2012 and 2016 to buy vehicles,

auto parts, televisions, and other items for personal use. Johnson

was sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Once placed on fiscal emergency, the village had to develop a

plan to eliminate the fiscal emergency conditions with the oversight

of a state financial planning and supervision commission. Since

then, state auditors have worked with village officials to develop

yearly budgets, maintain those budgets, and write audit and policy

procedures for the village. The state releases an entity from oversight

once the entity has cleared all questions and demonstrated financial

stability and the ability to maintain financial stability into

the future.

Bringing police presence to school campuses

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

London City Schools could soon be the

second school district in Madison County

with a school resource officer (SRO) on campus.

Madison-Plains Local Schools welcomed

their first SRO at the beginning of

this school year.

Rich Hays, a London city councilman, recently

summed up the purpose of a school

resource officer as “a deterrent to any violent

crime and to promote school safety by

building a positive school climate in which

everyone feels safe and students are supported

to succeed.”

On Sept. 13, the London school board

passed a memorandum of understanding

that will come before city council on Oct. 6.

The plan calls for the London Police Department

to assign an officer to work full-time

at the schools as an SRO starting in January

2023. In exchange for those services, the

school district would pay the city the equivalent

of 75 percent of an entry-level officer’s

salary and benefits.

“When the school board met in July,

one of the priorities they established

was enhancing safety and security. This

is one of the strategies to meet that

goal.”

–Dr. Lou Kramer, superintendent

of London City Schools

As for why the school district wants an SRO on campus, Superintendent

Dr. Lou Kramer said, “When the school board met in

July, one of the priorities they established was enhancing safety

and security. This is one of the strategies to meet that goal.”

Kramer said school leaders have discussed for several years the

possibility of having an SRO on campus. They held off until now in

hopes of securing grant funding to cover the cost.

“There are several safety grants we are pursuing through the

state, but they are only for equipment. We thought, instead of waiting

any longer, we would move forward,” he said.

Kramer said the SRO would serve as a liaison for students, faculty

and administrators on all security matters. The officer would

conduct a daily threat assessment, perform perimeter checks for

each building, serve as the key person for safety drills, help staff to

debrief, and revise and submit the district’s safety plan to Homeland

Security and the Department of Education, among other duties.

Over the summer, Madison-Plains Local Schools hired John Higgins,

a former Hilliard police officer with more than 30 years of experience,

to serve as the district’s full-time SRO.

“It is going very well. He has meshed very well with our staff

and our students,” said Superintendent Chad Eisler.

In the arrangement being forged between London City Schools

and the city of London, the SRO will be a city employee. Madison-

Plains took a different approach, hiring their SRO as a school dis-

London Police Chief Glenn Nicol said the

officer assigned to the schools would be an

experienced officer who is already on staff.

That person would work full-time at the

schools during the school year then fall back

into regular city patrol duties in the summers.

While at the schools, the officer would

be uniformed and armed. By Ohio Revised

Code, all SROs must complete special training

within a year of being appointed.

Nicol is requesting that city council approve

an increase in staffing levels for his

department by one officer to account for the

SRO being restricted to the school campus

for most of the calendar year. That request trict employee who has been given a deputy commission by the

will come before council on Oct. 6. See SRO page 5

Battling bus driver shortages

Leaders at Madison-Plains

working on possible solutions

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

School districts everywhere share a common challenge—finding

enough bus drivers. Madison-Plains Local Schools is no exception.

School leaders are working on ways to solve the issue.

Mark Mason, president of the Madison-Plains school board, said

the district needs a new game plan.

“We’re doing our best, but it’s frustrating for the families when

we can’t fill the routes,” he said at a recent

board meeting.

The district is constantly on the hunt for

bus drivers.

“We have had job postings up and interviewed

people, but for various reasons it has

not been working out,” said Superintendent

Chad Eisler. “We are at least three drivers

short of where we want to be. If we could

add four, that would be nice.”

Currently, the district’s bus drivers work

20 hours per week and receive the same insurance

that full-time employees receive.

“To be good to our employees, we offer

them full insurance,” Eisler said.

That means that full-time insurance premiums

and retirement benefits come out of

those part-time paychecks. With a 20-hour

per week job, that doesn’t leave much net pay.

“I believe we have employees who strictly

drive (buses) for the insurance. For some

folks, that may work, but for other folks,

that doesn’t,” Eisler said.

He explained that part-time bus driving

used to be attractive to individuals like

farmers and housewives who wanted to pick

up insurance and who could manage the

early morning and late afternoon schedule.

Other benefits include summers off and several

holiday breaks. The interest in that

kind of job just isn’t the same anymore,

Eisler said.

In an attempt to solve the issue, school

leaders are looking at structuring a few job

positions differently so they can hire individuals

as 40-hour per week employees to

not only serve as bus drivers but also handle

other tasks in the district. Administrators

and the board will discuss the idea at the

next school board meeting which is set for 7

p.m. Oct. 18 in the district meeting room at

the elementary building.

At the Sept. 20 school board meeting, the

board recognized two bus drivers for their

willingness to do what it takes to get children

to school, including running double

routes. The drivers are Dorothy “Cricket”

Holliday and Dawn Liff.

NOTICE OF PROPOSED

MAJOR UTILITY FACILITY

Springwater Solar, LLC, an indirectly owned subsidiary of Apex Clean Energy Holdings,

LLC, is proposing to build the Springwater Solar Project, a solar-powered generation

facility located in Fairfield Township, Madison County and Pleasant Township, Franklin

County, Ohio. The facility will have up to 155-megawatt (MW) alternating current

(AC) solar-powered electric generation facility and an up to 75 MW/300-megawatt

Community Club awarded $5,000 for park project

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

The South Charleston Community Club

is raising funds for a number of projects at

South Charleston Community Park.

The Community Club established the

park in 1963 and continues to maintain and

improve it. The non-profit organization recently

received a $5,000 grant from the

Bayer Fund to go toward a tiling project to

improve drainage in low-lying areas of the

park. The park sits adjacent to a stream.

The Bayer Fund is the philanthropical

arm of the Bayer company in the United

States. The fund develops programs and

makes investments to qualified non-profit

organizations. South Charleston resident

Brian Harbage, a member of the park

board, nominated the Community Club for

the grant.

Drainage improvements are one of the

projects on the club’s list. The group also is

raising funds to repair playground equipment,

replace mulch in the play area, and

purchase a new scoreboard, among other

improvements.

An ongoing capital campaign offers different levels of sponsorship

with different forms of recognition. The club also receives proceeds

from the Christmas in South Charleston event.

The Community Club meets at 6 p.m. the first Tuesday of each

month at Village Chic, 17 S. Chillicothe St., South Charleston. The

group is open to new members. They also welcome volunteers to

help with tasks such as trash pickup, weedeating, and flower planting.

Karman McKee Ogden recently took over the reins as president

of the club. She hopes to set aside a day sometime soon to gather

the community together to knock out some projects at the park.

Anyone interested in becoming a member, volunteering, or making

a donation can contact the club through Facebook. Search for

“South Charleston Community Park.”

In addition to Ogden, club officers include Teresa Bryan, treasurer,

and Heather McFarland, secretary. A park board works in

tandem with the club officers. In addition to Harbage, park board

members include Joe Davlin and Melissa Hanuska.

In the market for good stuff

Lovers of the fall season, or at least the fall season aesthetic, attended Mount Sterling’s 6th Annual Street Market on

Sept. 24. Hosted by the Market Crew, the event featured more than 25 vendors who sold everything from home décor

and baked goods to bewitching clothing and accessories.

Messenger photos by Dedra Cordle

Mount Sterling resident Fred Jacobs relaxes in his 1934

two-door Ford Sedan at the Street Market car show. Jacobs

said he has been looking for this vehicle, especially

painted in this brandywine color, for more than

three decades. “I finally found it about six years ago,

and I love everything about it,” he stated. The car show,

the first hosted at the Street Market, attracted more

than 50 entries.

Tamara Wallace entices the crowd at the Mount Sterling

Street Market pumpkin doughnut from Lindsey’s

Bakery. Wallace said these sweet treats from the Circleville-based

bakery are a big hit at autumn festivals,

so much so that they are sold by the dozens

and sell out within minutes. “I had to buy a few myself

before they were all snapped up,” she quipped.

Bringing a bit of greenery to the street scene was

Grove City resident Liberty Brigner. Originally from

Mount Sterling, Brigner established the Whimsey

Ridge Plant Co. over a year ago to bring her love of

plants to the masses. She said she propagates a variety

of types in her basement.

Ardelle Noggle rearranges her sweater pumpkins. The

Dublin resident, who grew up in Mount Sterling, began

making pumpkins, gourds, and other crafts out of repurposed

fabric and materials three years ago. She said

she can churn out a sweater pumpkin in 15 minutes, but

it takes her longer to complete the Mod Podge pumpkins

that are made out of decoupaging paper.

The Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management

Agency has issued a preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM), and where

applicable, Flood Insurance Study (FIS) report, reflecting proposed flood hazard

determinations within Madison County, Ohio and Incorporated Areas. These flood

hazard determinations may include the addition or modification of Base Flood

Elevations, base flood depths, Special Flood Hazard Area boundaries or zone

solicited on the proposed flood hazard determinations shown on the preliminary

effective for floodplain management purposes, you will be provided an

opportunity to appeal the proposed information. For information on the

statutory 90-day period provided for appeals, as well as a complete listing of the

Towns compete in ‘Bee the Change’ food drive

Additional activities

planned for ‘Make A

Difference Day’

Mount Sterling Mayor Marci Darlington

is coordinating a “Bee the Change” effort

leading up to Make A Difference Day on Oct.

22.

She has rallied the mayors of London,

West Jefferson and Plain City to get involved

with community projects and

fundraisers and to advocate for people in

their communities who need support.

As a group, the mayors are promoting a

community food drive, Oct. 1-16. Mount

Sterling, London, Plain City and West Jefferson

will compete to see which community

can collect the most canned and dry foods.

Donations will go to local food pantries.

Monetary donations will be accepted, as

well. For each food item donated and each

dollar raised, the community will get a

point. At the end of the friendly competition,

the community with the most points will get

bragging rights.

Donations can be dropped off at each

community’s administrative offices. The donations

will stay in the community in which

they are donated. If someone donates by

check, they should write it to the food

pantry they want to benefit.

The administrative drop-off addresses

and community food pantries are:

• London City Hall, 20 S. Walnut St.

Pantries to benefit are HELP House and

London Food Pantry.

• Mount Sterling Village Hall, 1 S. London

St. Pantry to benefit: Mount Sterling

Community Center Food Pantry.

• Plain City Municipal Building, 800 Village

Blvd. Pantry to benefit: Plain City Food

Pantry.

• West Jefferson Municipal Building, 28

E. Main St. Pantry to benefit: Good Samaritan

Food Pantry.

Other Bee The Change activities

In addition to the food drive competition,

Darlington has encouraged her fellow mayors

to hold other “Bee the Change”/Make a

Difference Day events over the next few

weeks. Watch for details at each community’s

Facebook page and website:

• London Mayor Patrick Closser—

• Mount Sterling Mayor Marci Darlington—www.facebook.com/MayorMarciDarlington;
