A part of Artemis<br />

A lifetime love of spacecraft<br />

By Dedra Cordle<br />

Staff Writer<br />

On Sept. 3, Thomas Howard Smith sat at his desk<br />

in his London home, perched on the chair, staring intently<br />

at a large computer monitor. A television screen<br />

in an adjoining<br />

room could have offered<br />

him a more<br />

expansive view, but<br />

his satellite signal<br />

was not working<br />

well that day—a<br />

fact that he found<br />

to be humorous<br />

and somewhat<br />

ironic considering<br />

the technological<br />

advances that were<br />

to occur before his<br />

eyes.<br />

Locked into a<br />

live stream via the<br />

National Aeronautics<br />

and Space Administration (NASA) web page,<br />

Smith soaked in the sight of a 322-foot tall rocket<br />

called the Space Launch System<br />

(SLS) that was minutes<br />

away from blasting off into the<br />

atmosphere. Ever since childhood,<br />

he has had a passion for<br />

“I am so excited about this program<br />

and the implications it could have on<br />

our future, finding life outside of our<br />

planet and the possibilities of new<br />

scientific breakthroughs and discovery.<br />

And to know that I played a part–<br />

a very small part, mind you, but a part<br />

nonetheless–in this new phase of<br />

space exploration that could inspire a<br />

new generation of scientific minds<br />

and the science-curious is still hard to<br />

wrap my head around.”<br />

–Thomas Howard Smith,<br />

retired NASA employee<br />

airplanes and spacecraft (real<br />

and fictional), but looking at<br />

this marvel of design, engineering,<br />

and operation hit him<br />

a little differently.<br />

“It was just parts being assembled<br />

when I started working<br />

on the SLS and the<br />

Artemis program with our<br />

[NASA] team, and seeing it<br />

completed and ready to launch<br />

was a real treat for me,” he<br />

said.<br />

Unlike most people who<br />

were watching the feed<br />

through the web stream or live<br />

on a cable news, Smith was familiar<br />

with the verbiage from<br />

the mission control booth and<br />

knew something was amiss<br />

during the systems test prior<br />

to the scheduled launch. Sure<br />

enough, the initial mission<br />

that would take the uncrewed<br />

spacecraft Orion into a monthlong<br />

distant retrograde orbit<br />

around the moon was postponed<br />

when a liquid hydrogen leak was<br />

detected.<br />

Retired from NASA for the<br />

past three years and living more<br />

than a thousand miles<br />

from the Kennedy<br />

Space Center in Cape<br />

Canaveral, Fla.,<br />

Smith said he was<br />

ready to pack a bag,<br />

get in his car and<br />

drive down I-71 to<br />

help the operations<br />

crew find and fix the<br />

problem so they could<br />

get the rocket and<br />

spacecraft into the sky<br />

for exploration of the<br />

lunar surface.<br />

“Lisa [his wife] told<br />

me to sit back down,”<br />

he said with a laugh.<br />

“I have the utmost<br />

confidence that they can find<br />

and fix the problem, but I just<br />

wanted to go there and help.”<br />

Smith said he wasn’t too disappointed<br />

that the SLS did not<br />

launch initially because “reality<br />

is, nothing new goes on the first<br />

try.” Even so, he could not quell<br />

the buzzing sensations that were<br />

coursing through his body from<br />

the experience.<br />

“I am so excited about this<br />

program and the implications it<br />

could have on our future, finding<br />

life outside of our planet and the<br />

possibilities of new scientific<br />

breakthroughs and discovery,”<br />

he said. “And to know that I<br />

played a part—a very small part, mind you, but a part<br />

nonetheless—in this new phase of space exploration that<br />

could inspire a new generation of scientific minds and<br />

the science-curious is still hard to wrap my head<br />

around.”<br />

Smith recalls liking science and “space stuff” as a<br />

young boy. His dream to work at the space agency<br />

started to take root at the age of 7 when, on July 20,<br />

1969, he watched Apollo 11 Commander Neil Armstrong<br />

and lunar module pilot Buzz Aldrin land and walk on the<br />

moon from the television set in his home in London.<br />

He said prior to that event, he really had no knowledge<br />

of NASA and what it would come to mean to him<br />

and so many others.<br />

Thomas Howard Smith’s budding love for science and space exploration was cemented<br />

when, at age 7, he watched the Apollo 11 moon landing on the television set in his home<br />

in London. He would later spend more than three decades working for the National Aeronautics<br />

and Space Administration (NASA) on the operations team for shuttle missions,<br />

the International Space Station, and the Artemis program. Although the powerful rocket,<br />

the Space Launch System, has yet to have a clear window to blast off into space, the<br />

Artemis program will allow for further exploration of the lunar surface with uncrewed<br />

and crewed missions. The program’s ultimate goal is to put humans on Mars.<br />

“Watching the landings on the moon was just very exciting to<br />

me, just from the point of view of people exploring a place no one<br />

had been before,” he said. “Added to that, I was then what would<br />

be called a ‘tech nerd’ now.”<br />

After the historic event took place, Smith went on something<br />

akin to a personal mission as he attempted to get his hands on any<br />

book or magazine or piece of literature on space and science fiction.<br />

He started to build his own miniature rockets that he and his<br />

friends would try to launch. His father, George, who would later retire<br />

as the deputy warden of London Correctional Institution, and<br />

his mother, Shirley, who was a local sixth-grade teacher, encouraged<br />

their son’s interest but they were not always amused by his<br />

antics.<br />

“They were supportive of my interest, but<br />

they didn’t always appreciate the racket we<br />

would make with our rocket launches,” he<br />

quipped.<br />

After graduating from London High<br />

School in 1980, Smith attended Michigan<br />

State University where he joined their Air<br />

Force Reserve Officer Training Corps. Four<br />

years later, equipped with a bachelor of science<br />

in physics and astronomy, the second<br />

lieutenant requested a transfer to the Vandenberg<br />

Air Force Base in Santa Barbara<br />

County, Calif., which was collaborating with<br />

NASA on Space Shuttle missions.<br />

“For the first half of my Air Force career,<br />

I was working on planning and hardware<br />

processing for the first shuttle mission that<br />

was to have been launched from Vandenberg,<br />

and I did some training at the<br />

(Kennedy Space Center) in Florida,” he said.<br />

When the shuttle launch facilities at<br />

Vandenberg closed shortly after the 1986<br />

Challenger disaster, Smith transferred to a<br />

program at the base in charge of Titan, a<br />

heavy lift rocket that carried large intelligence<br />

and reconnaissance satellites into<br />

orbit. There, he provided engineering and<br />

analysis assistance to get the program back<br />

on its feet after it experienced an uncrewed<br />

accident in a manner similar to the crewed<br />

Challenger mission.<br />

In 1988, a friend told Smith that NASA<br />

was hiring for its operations staff and he decided<br />

to apply. Having given up the dream<br />

of being an astronaut at 10 due to poor eyesight—“I<br />

knew it would disqualify me for<br />

being any kind of military pilot, which was<br />

the primary background for most astronauts<br />

at that point”—he knew he could<br />

process the data and set schedules and help<br />

find a solution to any mechanical issue that<br />

could arise. Still, he didn’t think he would<br />

be selected.<br />

Then he was.<br />

“I think I sat there [after the initial interview<br />

when he was told he was unofficially,<br />

but mostly officially, hired] for about<br />

an hour just absorbing what had happened,”<br />

he stated.<br />

From 1988 to 1997, Smith worked operations<br />

for the Space Shuttle processing, a job<br />

he described as scheduling backwards from<br />

a planned launch date to make sure the<br />

right parts are getting ordered and the right<br />

people are being called to fix problems that<br />

occur to ensure the safety of the missions,<br />

especially the manned crews.<br />

He said one of the most difficult things<br />

he had to do while working at NASA was to<br />

find the mechanical parts of the manned Columbia<br />

Space Shuttle that experienced a<br />

catastrophic failure as it reentered the atmosphere<br />

in 2003.<br />

In 1997, Smith went to work in International<br />

Space Station (ISS) processing, which<br />

he said was interesting, albeit frustrating,<br />

because the largest modular space station<br />

was being constructed in “chunks.”<br />

“Each chunk that went up—and we’re<br />

talking like 40 chunks—changed the configuration<br />

of the station, and all of the configurations<br />

had to work,” he explained. “So, it<br />

was like if you bought a car and you had two<br />

tires and part of an engine and maybe a<br />

seat, you had to find a way to make it operate.<br />

And then later, you would bring up<br />

maybe a couple more times, a bigger gas<br />

tank and another seat, and you would have<br />

to find a way to reconfigure the parts in<br />

order to make it work because people are<br />

[now] living on this station and they need<br />

power, and electrical power, and their life<br />

support units have to work.”<br />

Smith said those stressors were compounded<br />

when the teams at their partner<br />

agencies in Canada, Europe, Japan, and<br />

Russia would have a different way of finding<br />

solutions to problems.<br />

“I loved working with the Italians, but<br />

they had a very different way of doing<br />

things, you might say,” he laughed. “If you<br />

were working on a [launch] problem in August<br />

and tried to get ahold of one of their operations<br />

team members, you wouldn’t be<br />

able to get ahold of them because August is<br />

their vacation month.<br />

“It was sometimes stressful, but always<br />

interesting working with all of these different<br />

agencies and all of these different personalities.”<br />

During his time in ISS processing, Smith<br />

got involved with planning for Mars missions<br />

and later came to work on operations<br />

planning for the Ares I program which later<br />

became the Artemis program. Although the<br />

initial mission of the Artemis program is to<br />

create a long-term human presence on the<br />

lunar surface for further exploration of the<br />

moon, its ultimate goal is to send humans to<br />

Hanging on a wall in Thomas Smith’s London home are signed photographs of missions<br />

on which he worked while employed by NASA. He received the photographs at the time<br />

of his retirement three years ago.<br />

Mars via a series of experiments to determine<br />

how astronauts could get to the Red<br />

Planet and live on it for a duration of time.<br />

“The moon will essentially be a testing<br />

ground [for Mars expeditions],” Smith explained.<br />

“The equipment wouldn’t necessarily<br />

be the same, but a lot of the concepts of<br />

how the equipment is used—like the space<br />

suits, the science equipment, the vehicles<br />

that the astronauts roll around in and go to<br />

different places—you can test that stuff out<br />

on the moon where they’re close to Earth. If<br />

something goes wrong, you can bail out and<br />

come to Earth within a few days, but once<br />

they get to Mars, they’re not going to have<br />

that option.<br />

“It takes months to get there, and you<br />

can only return to Earth during a specific<br />

window in our rotation.”<br />

Smith reiterated his excitement about<br />

the potential of the Artemis program and its<br />

implications for science, space exploration,<br />

life on Earth, and life within the universe.<br />

“Carl Sagan, who is one of the people I<br />

think had a pretty big clue about what was<br />

going on, outside of his own personal life,<br />

said, ‘We are a way for the cosmos to know<br />

itself’, and I take that to heart,” Smith said.<br />

“If we are the only intelligent species<br />

around, that means we have a responsibility<br />

to try to keep understanding the universe.<br />

We have a responsibility to try not to let<br />

ourselves get wiped out in some way, and we<br />

have a responsibility to keep trying to understand<br />

the universe.<br />

“And if there are other kinds of life, not<br />

civilizations, but just life like amoebas or<br />

bacteria, we have to try to understand how<br />

it works, how they work, and add that to our<br />

library of what life looks like on another<br />

planet, in another place, and compare it to<br />

our extensive library of what life looks like<br />

here on Earth.”<br />

Smith said it will be a great day for science,<br />

a great day for space exploration,<br />

when the Artemis I program officially<br />

launches. The launch is now scheduled for<br />

mid-November. He added that he hopes it<br />

will inspire a new generation of explorers<br />

who go out and discover, and build their<br />

own backyard rockets, and dream.<br />

Thomas Howard Smith holds master of science<br />

degrees in engineering management and<br />

space science. He teaches an introductory astronomy<br />

course at Columbus State Community<br />

College.

Plain City Fall Festival planned for Oct. 22<br />

Axe throwing and archery new<br />

to event at Pastime Park<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> Editor<br />

Hayrides, a costume contest, axe throwing, and a professional<br />

pumpkin carver—that’s just the start of the list of attractions the<br />

village of Plain City has planned for their 2nd Annual Fall Festival.<br />

The family-friendly event is set for 4-7 p.m. Oct. 22 at Pastime<br />

Park, 370 N. Chillicothe St. Admission is free.<br />

Throw Nation, located in Dublin, is hosting the axe throwing station,<br />

a new addition to the festival. The activity is open to ages 13<br />

and older. Participants must sign a waiver. Also new is archery,<br />

open to all ages and sponsored by the Ohio Department of Natural<br />

Resources.<br />

“We have a lot more craft vendors this year,” said Denton Kitts,<br />

parks and recreation assistant. “Over 20 vendors have signed up so<br />

far. We have people bringing baked goods, homemade pickles, wood<br />

crafts, jewelry, knitted items, soaps and candles, and lots of holiday<br />

gift items.”<br />

Anyone who would like to set up shop as a craft vendor at the<br />

festival can contact Kitts at dkitts@plain-city.com. Spaces are<br />

10x10-feet and free. The deadline to sign up is Oct. 17.<br />

Plenty of food and treats are planned. Food trucks and food vendors<br />

include Biscuit Boss, Guelagetza Mexican Street Food,<br />

Por’ketta (modern twist on barbecue), Rocky Mountain Coffee Co.,<br />

Pink Pony Desserts, a kettle corn vendor, and Girl Scouts Troop<br />

4944 selling caramel apples.<br />

Local businesses, civic organizations, and individuals will hand<br />

out candy at Trick or Treat Alley. Anyone interested in giving out<br />

treats can contact Kitts.<br />

“Last year, we had about 300 kids just for Trick or Treat Alley.<br />

I think this year is going to be much bigger,” said Linda Granger,<br />

parks and recreation director, adding that those who sign up to give<br />

out treats should plan on having enough candy for 500 kids.<br />

Cornhole, a ring toss, and pumpkin tictac-toe<br />

are among the games the village has<br />

planned. The Miami Valley Steam Threshers<br />

will offer hayrides. Bounce houses, face<br />

painting, and a fall-themed photo op are<br />

part of the fun, too. Gus Smithhisler, a professional<br />

carver of giant pumpkins, returns.<br />

He will spend the festival creating a squash<br />

masterpiece.<br />

A costume contest is scheduled for 6 p.m.<br />

Prizes will be given in four children’s categories—2<br />

years old and younger, 3-6, 7-11,<br />

and 12 and older—as well as a group category<br />

for all ages.<br />

“The festival is a great, fun, fall activity<br />

that is safe and free,” Granger said. “You<br />

don’t have to spend any money if you don’t<br />

Cuddly Anderson and calico Lucy up for adoption<br />

The following are among the pets up for<br />

adoption at the Humane Society of <strong>Madison</strong><br />

County.<br />

Anderson<br />

This sweet cuddle<br />

bug’s name is<br />

Anderson. He may<br />

be big, but the shelter<br />

staff has a feeling<br />

he is going to<br />

think he’s a lap dog<br />

once he gets settled<br />

into a home. This<br />

boy has an estimated<br />

birth date of<br />

July 2017 and<br />

weighs about 73 pounds. Anderson is a<br />

handsome, awesome dog. When he is oneon-one<br />

with his person, he is the biggest<br />

baby. He is very intelligent, knows his basic<br />

obedience, and is very food motivated and<br />

quick to learn. He knows sit, down, sit and<br />

stay, shake with both paws, and he knows<br />

to stop and wait at doors before entering or<br />

exiting.<br />

Anderson keeps his kennel clean, loves<br />

pets and snuggles and will melt in your lap<br />

as he melts your heart. He is a very well-behaved<br />

boy. He does really well with services<br />

like nail trims and will politely hand you his<br />

paw. At this time, he is a little stressed at<br />

the shelter, so the staff is asking that Anderson<br />

be the only pet in the home and,<br />

maybe with more socializing and training,<br />

this will change.<br />

When it comes to children, Anderson is a<br />

very big guy with very big zoomies. The<br />

shelter staff would love for him to go to a<br />

home with older children who have experience<br />

with large doggos (just so he doesn’t accidentally<br />

knock anyone down.<br />

Adoption fees for dogs vary: shelter dogs<br />

are $180, prison dogs are $250, puppies are<br />

$300, and popular pure-breeds are $400.<br />

The price includes: a Home Again microchip,<br />

set of shots, deworming, heartworm<br />

testing (if old enough), spay or neuter, and<br />

a one-year rabies shot (if old enough). All<br />

dogs adopted must leave with a county license<br />

at an additional cost of $17; this fee is<br />

cash only. Adoption fees can be paid by cash<br />

or credit card.<br />

Lucy<br />

Lucy arrived<br />

at the shelter<br />

because her previous<br />

owners<br />

could no longer<br />

care for her. She<br />

has an estimated<br />

birth<br />

date of April 1, 2016. She not only has gorgeous<br />

blue eyes, she also has the most beautiful<br />

dilute calico coat (colored with grey,<br />

orange, white, peach, black and brown).<br />

Lucy loves to have her coat brushed, and<br />

she likes to lie around on the cat trees and<br />

take naps. She also loves pets and will headbutt<br />

you and say, “Hey, hooman. Pet me<br />

now!” Lucy is vocal when she wants to be,<br />

but for the most part she is pretty mellow<br />

and a little shy.<br />

Lucy has done well with the other cats<br />

she has met but will require slow, proper introductions.<br />

She has not yet met any dogs<br />

at the shelter but, like with cats, will require<br />

proper introductions. She seems to<br />

love everyone that she meets. The shelter<br />

staff thinks she will thrive in a home with<br />

children who have experience with cats and<br />

will give her time to adjust.<br />

Lucy is very treat-motivated and comes<br />

running when you rattle that treat jar.<br />

The adoption fee is $80 for kittens up to<br />

6 months old and $60 for cats 7 months and<br />

older. It includes: a FeLV/FIV test, spay or<br />

neuter, set of shots, deworming, and a oneyear<br />

rabies shot (if old enough). Fees can be<br />

paid by cash or credit card.<br />

Special event traffic concerns<br />

Mt. Sterling council talks about<br />

road closures and routing issues<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> Editor<br />

Road closures for special events and the resulting<br />

traffic pattern changes were a hot topic at Mount Sterling<br />

village council’s Oct. 10 meeting.<br />

Council member Joyce Phillips said residents who live<br />

in the area near High and Market streets are concerned<br />

about traffic, especially large trucks, that is routed onto<br />

side streets when main roads are blocked for events such<br />

as the upcoming Haunted House on North London<br />

Street. She cited a village ordinance that restricts<br />

through-traffic of heavy-duty trucks on certain streets.<br />

Residents have suggested alternatives to alleviate<br />

some of their concerns about safety and parking.<br />

Phillips passed along one resident’s suggestion that<br />

Mount Sterling Masonic Lodge 269, organizers of the<br />

Haunted House, shift the entrance for the attraction to<br />

the back of the lodge so that lines could form into the<br />

alley, rather than flowing into the street at the front of<br />

the lodge. Another suggestion is to host events at Veterans<br />

Field by the Mount Sterling Community Center.<br />

(The village does not own Veterans Field.)<br />

Council member Andy Drake said he has talked to<br />

residents on High and Market streets about the issue.<br />

“I also am hearing an awful lot (about this). I have<br />

no instant answer other than to say we have to figure<br />

something out, and we’ve got to do it probably sooner<br />

rather than later,” he said.<br />

Drake noted that the village has worked on route<br />

ideas with the <strong>Madison</strong> County Sheriff’s Office over the<br />

years. Currently, traffic is routed one way onto some<br />

side streets during special events.<br />

Council member David Timmons said the situation<br />

is a two-sided coin. On the one side, residents need their<br />

privacy and safety concerns met; on the other side, the<br />

events give people in the community, especially children,<br />

something fun to do, he said.<br />

Council member Becky Martin belongs to the Mount<br />

Sterling Chamber of Commerce which organizes the<br />

three-day Summer Jam and half-day Christmas in the<br />

Village and is involved in organizing the half-day Street<br />

Market and three-day Haunted House—all annual<br />

events in the village. She said organizers of these events<br />

have tried different approaches through the years, striving<br />

for a balance between accommodating the needs of<br />

the events and the wants, concerns and safety of residents.<br />

She said organizers are open to tweaking things,<br />

to a point.<br />

“If we start putting a lot of restrictions on these few<br />

events, these events will go away. I guarantee it,” Martin<br />

said. “They’re a lot of work, and everyone involved<br />

is all volunteers. The only reason that these events are<br />

happening are to benefit the community,” Martin said.<br />

Phillips said the residents she represents are not<br />

asking the events to stop, but rather want restrictions<br />

in place when it comes to shutting down streets and<br />

rerouting traffic. She said there should be no exceptions<br />

to the ordinance that prohibits through-traffic of heavyduty<br />

trucks on certain side streets.<br />

“I am speaking on behalf of the people in the neighborhood<br />

it has affected. And this is very important to<br />

them,” Phillips said. “And I don’t take this lightly because<br />

we are here to represent the village residents.”<br />

Martin said the village makes other exceptions, such<br />

as holding movie nights at Mason Park even though visitors<br />

are not permitted at the park after dusk.<br />

“We change these rules and make exceptions so our<br />

community can have events and can have some entertainment,”<br />

she said.<br />

Council member Rob Longcoy said the upcoming<br />

Haunted House is a “feel-good thing for the community”<br />

that both children and adults can enjoy. Without blocking<br />

the street, the event could not be presented to the<br />

extent it is now, he added.<br />

Phillips replied, “We’re not saying not to have it.<br />

We’re saying we need to tweak it and take some of the<br />

traffic burden off the streets, because they are residents,<br />

too.”<br />

Mayor Marci Darlington halted further discussion,<br />

suggesting that village officials, event organizers and<br />

concerned citizens meet at the start of next year to talk<br />

about the issue and potential solutions. She also said<br />

she would consult with other communities in <strong>Madison</strong><br />

County to see what concerns they have fielded regarding<br />

special event traffic changes and the solutions they<br />

have found.<br />

Everything free at WJ Fall Fest<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> Editor<br />

Shelton Stanley, West Jefferson’s special<br />

events and recreation manager, is proud to<br />

present the village’s 2nd Annual Fall Festival,<br />

slated for 6-9 p.m. Oct. 22 at the Community<br />

Center, 230 Cemetery Rd.<br />

“We want the community to come out<br />

and enjoy a fun-filled night,” Stanley said.<br />

“A lot of people nowadays get wrapped up in<br />

having to go pay for something. This is<br />

something we can provide to our community<br />

that’s free.”<br />

Spooky, tasty, lively—these are apt adjectives<br />

to describe what’s on tap for the event.<br />

Starting with the spooky side of things, the<br />

Community Center will be transformed into<br />

a haunted house. This year’s theme is zombies.<br />

Tours run from 6-9 p.m. and are open<br />

to all ages. Adults must accompany children<br />

who are 12 years old or younger.<br />

“High-school kids and some local adults,<br />

as well, have volunteered to come in and<br />

dress up for the haunted house,” Stanley<br />

said.<br />

The same goes for the haunted hayrides<br />

which will run from 7-9 p.m.<br />

New this year is a henna artist, balloon<br />

artist, and apple cider slushies, along with<br />

a second mechanical bull. Now, visitors<br />

have their pick of a zombie bull or a spider<br />

bull.<br />

Returning to the activities lineup are facepainting and a deejay.<br />

Visitors are encouraged to dress in costumes to add to the Halloween/autumn<br />

atmosphere.<br />

In addition to apple cider slushies, food offerings include hotdogs,<br />

hamburgers, shredded chicken, s’mores, and cotton candy.<br />

So far, more than 40 groups and individuals have signed up to<br />

hand out candy from the trunks of their cars for trunk-or-treat from<br />

6-8 p.m. Anyone who would like to join the lineup is asked to contact<br />

Stanley.<br />

“We tell people to have enough candy for 1,000 kids, and most of<br />

the time they still run out of candy,” he said.<br />

First-, second-, and third-place prizes will be awarded to the best<br />

decorated trunk-or-treat vehicles. West Jefferson Mayor Ray Martin,<br />

volunteer Bonnie Hamilton, and likely a couple of village council<br />

members will serve as judges.<br />

Stanley appreciates everyone who pitches in as sponsors, volunteers,<br />

and supporters for the festival.<br />

“I want to thank the mayor, village council, and all of our volunteers.<br />

Without them, none of this would be possible,” he said.<br />

Anyone who would like to volunteer or set up for trunk-or-treat<br />

can contact Stanley at (614) 307-6543.<br />

Helen M. Hobson, age 76, of Marysville, went to be with the Lord<br />

on Friday, <strong>October</strong> 7, <strong>2022</strong>, at home surrounded by her loving family following an<br />

extended illness.<br />

On September 21, 1946, Helen was born in Unionville Center, Ohio, the youngest of<br />

four children of the late Rev. Dale and Hazel (Thompson) Bliss. She graduated from<br />

Fairbanks High School in the class of 1965. She furthered her education, earning a<br />

business degree.<br />

One of Helen’s cousins set her up on a blind date with a young gentleman, James<br />

Hobson, and from there the rest is history. They were married a year later on January<br />

4, 1969, and have cherished their 53 years together. They were perfect opposites,<br />

with Jim being laid back and quiet, and Helen being chatty, with everyone teasing Jim that he could never get a<br />

word in edgewise.<br />

A loving homemaker, Helen took pride in caring for her husband and two children until they were further along<br />

in school. She then joined her brother, Russell, as his office manager at Bliss Medical Supply, where he repaired<br />

medical equipment.<br />

Very faithful, Helen was an active member of the Marysville Freewill Baptist Church, where often volunteered to<br />

help their ladies aid group. She also was a fifty plus year member of the Eastern Star.<br />

A sewing and craft expert, Helen could make anything she set her mind to. She was a whiz on the sewing machine,<br />

making special clothes, outfits and costumes for her family. She loved getting creative in her craft room, making<br />

latch-hooks, embroideries, crocheting, and so much more. She also loved doing her crossword puzzles.<br />

Having a heart of gold, Helen deeply loved her family, friends and her church family. For her beloved great-grandchildren,<br />

she was their wheelchair MaMa, entertaining them with long rides. She also had an ornery, quirky sense<br />

of humor that made everyone smile.<br />

She will be dearly missed by her beloved husband, James Hobson of Marysville; two children: Robert (Lath) Hobson<br />

of Hilliard, and Amy Borham of Marysville; three grandchildren: Mark and Cody Borham, and Jessica Hobson; three<br />

great-grandchildren: Earl Dean, Timothy and Madilyn Borham; a brother, John (Brenda) Bliss of Plain City; a sisterin-law,<br />

Judi (Gary) Landin of South Carolina; and numerous nieces and nephews.<br />

Including her parents, Helen was preceded in death by her sister and brother-in-law, Barbara (Donald) Collins;<br />

brother, Russell Bliss; and her father-in-law and mother-in-law: Cecil and Alice (Harrington) Hobson.<br />

Her family will greet friends from 5 – 7 pm on Tuesday, <strong>October</strong> 11, <strong>2022</strong>, at the Ingram Funeral Home, 975 N.<br />

Maple St., Marysville. Services honoring her life will also be held there at 11 am, on Wednesday, with Pastor Paul<br />

Bogenrife officiating. Burial will follow in Broadway Cemetery.<br />

Memorial contributions may be made to Loving Care Hospice (https://ohioshospicelovingcare.org/donations/).<br />

On behalf of her family, they would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Loving Care Hospice for their sweet,<br />

tender care of Helen in her final weeks and days.<br />

Ingram Funeral Home of Marysville is honored to serve Helen’s family and your condolences may be expressed<br />

to them by visiting www.IngramFuneralService.com.

Shining the spotlight on talented young artists<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> Editor<br />

The west-facing side of the building at 58<br />

E. High St. in London has a new look that<br />

brings the story behind the east-facing side<br />

full circle.<br />

A few weeks ago, Mick Harris, who owns<br />

the building, helped to install five pieces of<br />

artwork on the building’s west-facing exterior.<br />

The pieces are reproductions of Best of<br />

Show winners in the Kurt Lattimer Aspiring<br />

Artist Award program.<br />

Art contest<br />

The 6th Annual Kurt Lattimer Aspiring<br />

Artist Award contest is open to high<br />

school seniors from <strong>Madison</strong> County who<br />

are slated to graduate in 2023. Students<br />

in public, private or home school are invited<br />

to enter.<br />

The contest commemorates the life of<br />

Kurt Lattimer, an artist and 2008 London<br />

High School graduate who passed<br />

away in 2017. The contest is designed to<br />

challenge and inspire local youths to cultivate<br />

and share their artistic talent, as<br />

well as promote the arts in <strong>Madison</strong><br />

County.<br />

The theme for the contest is “What I<br />

Dream of for My Future.” A prize of $500<br />

will go to the first-place finishers in each<br />

of the following categories: paintings and<br />

drawings; digital art; and stained glass,<br />

mosaics and ceramics. The entrant<br />

whose work is named overall Best of<br />

Show will receive $1,000.<br />

Entries are due by noon on Jan. 21.<br />

Winners will be announced and all entries<br />

will be displayed during the <strong>Madison</strong><br />

County Arts Council’s Young Artist<br />

Showcase on Jan. 22 at First United<br />

Methodist Church of London. Art then<br />

will be displayed at London City Hall in<br />

February.<br />

More information about entering the<br />

competition can be found at aspiringartistaward.com.<br />

Prizes are funded through donations.<br />

Donations may be sent to: <strong>Madison</strong><br />

County Arts Council, P.O. Box 122, London,<br />

OH 43140. Please mark the memo<br />

line with “KLAAA.”<br />

The program honors local artist Kurt<br />

Lattimer who created the London community<br />

mural that adorns the opposite side of<br />

the building. Kurt passed away in 2017 at<br />

the age of 27. With the support of friends<br />

and loved ones, Harris and Kurt’s mother,<br />

Kim Lattimer Reeder, established the Aspiring<br />

Artist Award program five years ago<br />

to give young artists a chance to shine.<br />

“It feels wonderful to have the artwork<br />

up on the building,” Harris said about the<br />

recent installation. “It means so much to<br />

Kim, and it means so much to me, as well,<br />

to honor Kurt that way and to recognize the<br />

kids.”<br />

The Aspiring Artist Award contest is<br />

open to high school seniors in <strong>Madison</strong><br />

County. The theme is the same each year:<br />

“What I Dream of for My Future.”<br />

“Each of the pieces of artwork are so different,<br />

yet they are all the same. All kids<br />

have dreams, and every kid is unique,” Harris<br />

said.<br />

Ever since moving to London many years<br />

ago, Reeder, an artist herself, has been impressed<br />

by the number of artistic, creative<br />

people living in the area.<br />

“There’s a wealth of talent here. I think<br />

sharing that with the community is important,<br />

especially for youth. It has to be inspirational<br />

to them,” she said.<br />

Harris agrees.<br />

“Seeing kids produce art the way they do<br />

is amazing. The talent—it’s hidden. We want<br />

to encourage kids to follow their passions,<br />

follow their dreams. We want kids to have<br />

an outlet and an award for continuing that<br />

Tax preparation volunteers needed<br />

AARP Foundation Tax-Aide, which suspended<br />

operations in <strong>Madison</strong> County more<br />

than two years ago as the COVID-19 pandemic<br />

worsened, is preparing to return this<br />

winter and is looking for volunteers to help<br />

restart the service.<br />

The all-volunteer program provides free,<br />

no-strings-attached income tax preparation<br />

to anyone but places emphasis on serving<br />

senior citizens. Before the shutdown, Tax-<br />

Aide volunteers working at the <strong>Madison</strong><br />

County Emergency Management Agency<br />

prepared tax returns for about 350 London<br />

area residents each year.<br />

Volunteers provide a calm and reassuring<br />

hand to people who are often fretful about<br />

filing their return, make sure clients receive<br />

every tax benefit to which they are entitled,<br />

and save them the often significant amount<br />

of money that private tax preparers charge.<br />

Volunteers come from all walks of life. No<br />

experience is required. Tax-Aide provides<br />

training, a computer to work on, and mentorship<br />

throughout the tax season. For more<br />

information, go to aarpfoundation.org/taxaidevolunteer<br />

or call 1-888-227-7669.<br />

passion. Don’t ever hide it!” he said.<br />

The students’ artwork will remain on display<br />

as long as there is room on the building’s<br />

wall. Harris estimates he has space for<br />

another five pieces—meaning another five<br />

years’ worth of contest winners—before it<br />

will be necessary to rotate out the older<br />

pieces or come up with another solution.<br />

Harris is in the process of selling the<br />

building to the current occupants, Eddie<br />

and Victoria Vallery, owners of Vallery’s<br />

Farmhouse Bakery.<br />

“They know the passion I had for Kurt’s<br />

mural. They worked their drive-through<br />

Mick Harris<br />

installs Best<br />

of Show artwork<br />

from<br />

the Kurt Lattimer<br />

Aspiring<br />

Artist<br />

Award program<br />

at 58<br />

E. High St.,<br />

London. A<br />

mural by the<br />

late Kurt<br />

Lattimer<br />

adorns the<br />

opposite<br />

side of the<br />

building.<br />

around it. And they were great about us<br />

wanting to put the kids’ artwork on the<br />

other side,” he said.<br />

Reeder is thrilled to have the student artwork<br />

on display for the community to see<br />

and to see her son’s memory honored.<br />

“A man came up and asked why I was<br />

taking photos during the installation (of the<br />

artwork),” she said. “I was telling him about<br />

this award and before I even got to the point<br />

of telling him about Kurt, he asked me,<br />

‘Kurt Lattimer?’ I was floored. Kurt had tattooed<br />

this man. So cool! Kurt is very much<br />

present.”

Last Fall Distance Classic<br />

The 48th Annual Erin L. Nance Fall Distance Classic took place Oct. 1 at the London Country<br />

Club. A total of 590 middle school and high school cross country runners participated. Terry<br />

Nance has served as the meet manager since 1978. In conjunction with the meet, Terry and<br />

his wife, Connie, have sold t-shirts and collected donations for parking to benefit a scholarship<br />

fund at London High School. The meet honors the memory of their daughter, Erin, who died in<br />

a car accident in 1998. At this year’s meet, Terry and Connie announced their retirement from<br />

organizing the meet. – <strong>Messenger</strong> photos by Pat Donahue<br />
