Balancing life on gridiron with being a medical professional
By Linda Dillman
Heidelberg University football lineman
Wally Kalinowski knows what it is like to
deliver pain, but as a registered nurse, he
also knows how to treat and offer relief from
“I played offensive line in high school,
specifically left guard,” said Kalinowski, a
2019 graduate of Canal Winchester High
School who also played basketball and
threw shot-put and discus on the track and
field team. “I was in the National Honor Society,
team captain of the football team my
senior year and the homecoming king. I was
in the journalism club and my senior year
helped new journalism students in Justin
Natalies class who is, in fact, the greatest
teacher at Canal Winchester High School.”
Kalinowski graduated high school with
honors and a 4.0 grade point average before
entering Heidelberg and focusing on earning
a degree in nursing and balancing his
time between classes, football practices,
games, and work.

DORA in CW may become a reality
By Linda Dillman
The city of Canal Winchester is inching
closer to opening a Designated Outdoor Refreshment
A DORA allows patrons to purchase a
drink in a downtown bar or restaurant and
walk around city streets within the boundaries
of 21.6 acres bordered by High Street.
and Waterloo Street.
“I think we’ve kind of come to a conclusion
as far as the application process goes,”
said Mayor Mike Ebert during Canal Winchester
City Council’s Sept. 19 work session.
“There’s been a few changes in state law
since we started this. You don’t need the
number of establishments you did before.
You also no longer need designated cups for
The proposed DORA includes the Old
Town area, which has restaurants, boutique
stores, financial institutions, professional
services, and miscellaneous retail. There are
single-family residences within the refreshment
area boundaries, but the DORA was
specifically designed to encompass key
areas of business and retail establishments.
When residents were previously asked
for suggestions in crafting the Old Town
Plan, the highest priority they listed was to
promote commercial growth. According to
the DORA proposal, establishing a refreshment
area in conjunction with special
events can enhance entertainment options
and help increase sales for existing restaurants
Canal Winchester Development Director
Lucas Haire said the city identified 21 locations
delineating the borders of the DORA
where signage would be posted.
“Many will be small signs attached to
street signage,” said Haire. “We’re looking
at up to five new trash cans at the boundaries
Current park rules–impacting the
Stradley Park area, which is within the
DORA–do not allow alcoholic beverages,
and is an issue that would need to be
amended by council. Window decals or stickers
would identify participating businesses.
“I’ve been passionate about bringing the
DORA to Canal Winchester,” said Councilwoman
Jill Amos. “I think it will benefit our
businesses and I’d love to see an expanded
time frame. I think we’ll use it a lot.”
Amos might get her wish after council
discussed changing proposed designated
hours of operations from Thursday to Sunday
from noon to 11 p.m. during designated
special events to every week during the
has been difficult.
“Time management is the key to being
able to do all of this and anything you set
your mind to in life,” said Kalinowski. “Our
coaching staff is phenomenal and they always
preach that school comes first. They
have always been so understanding about
my schooling and understand that it comes
first to myself and football is second.”
Kalinowski said he enjoys being busy
and is always on the go, so managing football
and school is something he did throughout
high school. However, he admitted the
routine is a little more difficult in college.
“It was all worth it,” said Kalinowski.
“Football was my escape from all of that, I
can just be myself and not worry about anything
else going on in my life. It has turned
me into the young man I am today.”
As a collegiate-level player, Kalinowski
said he loved every second of the experience,
from gut wrenching losses and triumphant
wins to hard practices/workouts.
“At Heidelberg, it is one of the few places
where our entire team is so close and it is
See BALANCING, page 2
“If we’re going to look in that direction,
we need to have a public hearing,” said
A public hearing is scheduled for Nov. 7
at 5:30 p.m., prior to the council work session.
If it is approved by council this year
and pending a final review by the Ohio Department
of Commerce, the DORA could roll
out early in 2023.
Changes to public comment rules
Changes to council rules addressing
council vacancies, public comment periods,
and deadline to submit written comments
prior to a council meeting were approved following
a third reading. However, following
a suggestion by Councilman Patrick Shea,
the deadline to submit written comments
was extended to noon the day of a council
One change drawing the bulk of the discussion
was reducing the individual public
comment time from five to three minutes,
although council’s presiding officer has the
opportunity to grant a request for more
time, if the situation allows.
Canal Winchester Law Director Thad
Boggs said the three-minute allotment is
typical practice across the region. He added

truly a family,” said Kalinowski,
who was named First team Ohio
Athletic Conference and an Academic
All-OAC athlete. “I love every
single one of my teammates and
coaches and I will forever. The
biggest difference between high
school and college football is the independence.
Our staff relies on us to
be responsible young men and we
are supposed to do everything the
right way. College football is an electric
atmosphere no matter what the
level is and I recommend every
young player to take the opportunity
if it is gifted to them. I wouldn’t
be where I am today without Heidelberg
Now a registered nurse, Kalinowski’s
class load is less and he
only works 25 hours a week during
football season. Kalinowski, who
wears number 68 and is an offensive
linesman on the Heidelberg team,
said the toughest thing was adjusting
to the night shift at work, but he
loves his job.
CW Schools State Report Card results
By Linda Dillman
The news was good when Canal Winchester Local
Schools opened up its state report card for the 2021-22
school year, considering the district was battling the effects
of a global pandemic dating back to 2020.
“I am happy to report the district has met or exceeded
state expectations for learning across the board,”
said Superintendent Kiya Hunt during a Sept. 19 board
meeting. “This is due to our students, teacher and staff
dedication over the last two years to recover from the
interruptions and setbacks due to the COVID 19 pandemic.
We are proud to see continued excellence in gap
closing and exceeding progress expectations.”
Rick Palsgrove........................Canal Winchester Editor

The Columbus Messenger Co.

In moving forward, Hunt said her staff will closely
review the report card data and identify areas where
there is room for improvement.
According to the Ohio Department of Education, the
district met five out of five standards in Gap Closing,
which measures reductions in educational gaps for student
subgroups. The score significantly exceeds state
Canal Winchester’s Graduation Rate and Progress
(a measure of student growth) met four out of five standards
and exceeds the state standard. The district met

performance on state tests–and Early Literacy, grades

that members of the public have the ability to reach out
to council members individually or collectively and
make their voices heard anytime they wish. Whereas,
Boggs pointed out, council members have a limited
amount of time to speak to each other as a public body.
“If you can say something in five minutes, you can
say it in three if you narrow your comments down to
what you’re there for instead of rambling,” said Coun-

Councilman Chuck Milliken said there are opportunities
to be more lenient with the time limit instead of
being more stringent.
“The meetings where we had 20 to 30 people wanting
to talk about warehouses is not an appropriate time to
extend public comments,” said Milliken.
“If you love something
you will do anything to
make it work,” said Kalinowski,
who wants to further
his education as a
pediatric nurse practitioner
or go to medical school. “I
have always wanted to pursue
a job in the medical field
and I was unsure which

path I should take. My cousin is a
PICU nurse and he helped influence
me a lot to determine which route to
go. I have always been fond of helping
other people and putting others
first before myself and nursing was
perfect for those values. It is a very
rewarding profession and I am
proud to do so. I want to specialize
in pediatrics because I have always
loved working with kids and see
how they grow and develop.”
When it comes to cheering on his
son, Walter Kalinowski freely admits
to being a proud father. He is
not surprised at his son’s accomplishments.
“My wife and I are so proud of
Wally and the choices he is making,”
said Walter, who added his son’s
peers thought enough of him to
name him as a captain of the Heidelberg
team. “He has always been
very analytical in his decision making
and once he
commits to something,
he is all in.

medicine is special

CW Schools adds Madison Twp. Police SRO to boost security
By Linda Dillman
Canal Winchester Schools has entered
into an agreement with the Madison Township
Police Department to provide a school
resource officer for the remainder of the
2022-23 school year.
The Madison Township Police SRO joins
a Fairfield County SRO who is already on
duty. The district began discussions with
Madison Township after the county sheriff’s
office said they could not provide a second
SRO due to staffing.
The Fairfield County deputy spends most
of his day at the high school and travels to
other campuses as needed. The township resource
officer will split time between the
middle school and two elementary buildings.
“I do believe having a relationship with
Madison Township with an SRO would be
extremely important in adding an extra
layer of security and safety in our district,”
said Superintendent Kiya Hunt. “Having
trained school resource officers to support
our school administrators and staff is an important
piece of our overall safety and security
plan for our schools. In addition to
SROs, the Canal Winchester Schools safety
plan also includes a comprehensive mental
health support program, trained threat assessment
and crisis response teams, safety
drills with students, and training for teachers
and staff. We look forward to working in
partnership with Madison Township Police
Department and Fairfield County Sheriff’s
Office to keep our schools safe, secure, and
welcoming for all students and staff.”
Board President Kevin Butler said safety
is a priority for Canal Winchester Schools and
it is better to be proactive instead of reactive.
“We’ve been mulling around ideas,” said
Butler. “I’m excited to have the opportunity
to work with Madison Township. This is a
big deal. We know finding a good officer is a
challenge. Keeping our students and staff
safe is our top priority. We are grateful to the
Madison Township Trustees and Madison
Township Police Department for their support
in adding a second resource officer to enhance
safety and security at our schools.”
The district and police department hope
to have an officer in place by mid-October.
When asked about any differences in
working with the sheriff’s department,
Madison Township Police Chief Gary York
said he anticipates having the same type of
relationship his SRO has at the Groveport
Madison High School with the Groveport
Police Department SRO.
“That relationship has developed and given
that school a good sense of security,” said
York. “I don’t see any difference. I see us working
alongside the sheriff’s department SRO.”
Hunt pointed out a couple of differences
in practice between the two departments,
but she felt they would not clash. The Fairfield
County SRO does not wear a body camera,
whereas the Madison Township officer
does and, according to Hunt, will turn it on
if a situation warrants.
“I feel cameras are very important and we
need to work to get all of our officers on school
grounds to have a camera when it involves
our student,” said board member Vangela
Barnes. “It is important to have a picture of
what transpires, not just a witness.”
In addition, the township SRO carries a
taser and the county SRO does not.
Board member Matt Krueger said that
over the last five years, the district has focused
attention on addressing the mental
health aspect in educating students and
“beefing” up the staff and resources for families
“Bringing on a second SRO is a piece to
that puzzle of safety in the classroom,” said
Krueger. “There’s safety outside and inside
the buildings. I appreciate the board and administration’s
help in bringing this all together
and creating a safe environment for
students and faculty. I’m proud to bring on
a second SRO. It’s a good day.”
Madison Township trustees approve SRO for CW Schools
By Linda Dillman
Students will soon see a pair of school resource
officers in their hallways following
Canal Winchester Schools’ agreement with
the Madison Township Police Department.
to add another officer to their SRO staff.
During the Sept. 19 Madison Township
trustee meeting, prior to the Canal Winchester
Board of Education meeting that
night, the trustees approved providing a
Madison Township Police officer as a school

Canal Winchester • Grove City • Groveport • Madison • South • Westside
resource officer for the 2022-23 school year.
The agreement is similar to one the township
has with Groveport Madison Schools.
According to Madison Township Police
Chief Gary York, the job must be posted inhouse
for five days for officers with at least
three years of service with the department.
“This is a quick-moving process,” said
York. “I anticipate this to be a smooth transition
like we had five years ago with Groveport.
I think that transition went smoothly.”
The Madison Township officer will work
with a Fairfield County deputy sheriff covering
the high school, middle school and elementary
schools. York anticipates his
officer to start off at the middle school and
“We are not disciplinarians,” said York.
“We’re there for the kids.”
Student code of conduct or school rules
violations that are not criminal will be handled
by school faculty and staff, not SROs.
The officers are told they should not directly
intervene unless the situation directly
affects an imminent threat to the health,
safety, and security of the student or another
person in the school and will employ
de-escalation techniques as appropriate.
School discipline is the responsibility of
the appropriate school administrator.
York expects his Madison Township officer
to start as soon as Oct. 3. While the
Canal Winchester SROs are contracted by
the district for the school year, they return
to their regular department positions for the
rest of the year.
For the current school year, Madison
Township is being reimbursed for school
services at a prorated amount for the first
year since the memorandum began after the
start of the 2022-23 year. The cost is based
on a fixed percentage of the SRO’s current
department salary and benefits, depending
on who applies and is chosen for the position.
“I was approached by Canal Winchester
Schools,” said York, “and learned they have
been looking for a second SRO for some
time. It’s also something I’ve been thinking
about for some time as well. I’m excited
about this opportunity. We have a successful
program at Groveport. SROs are important
in the community and the bond our
Groveport SRO has with kids is incredible.”
All SROs appointed after Nov. 2, 2018,
must complete an additional 40 hours of
school resource officer training within one
year of appointment. They are encouraged
to receive additional training each year on
topics such as trending school-based law enforcement
topics, child development, adolescent
psychology, trauma, conflict resolution,
mental health and addiction, children with
disabilities, juvenile and education law and
policy, and cultural competence.
SROs also engage in traditional criminal
investigation and report-taking. They have
the authority to issue warnings, make arrests,
and use alternatives to arrest at their
discretion, mindful of the common goal of
supporting student success.
SROs are not involved in searches conducted
by school personnel unless a criminal
act is involved or unless school
personnel require the assistance of the officer
because of exigent circumstances, such
as the need for safety or to prevent flight.
They are allowed to participate in a
search of a student’s person, possessions,
locker, or vehicle only where there is probable
cause to believe that the search will turn
up evidence that the student has committed
or is committing a criminal offense.
While the employment of a school resource
officer by the district for the school
year diverts the officer from regular township
duty, township trustees approved hiring
a new officer effective Oct. 3 contingent
upon successful completion of all required
testing and evaluations.
“We also have two more in the pipeline,”
said York, who asked for patience as the department
works through the hiring process.
