Haunted House

doubles in size

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

More than double the frightful fun awaits those who visit “The

Misfit Haunt,” Mount Sterling’s haunted house.

For the third straight year, Masonic Lodge 269, 54 N. London

St., is hosting a Halloween-themed extravaganza. The star attraction

is the transformed lodge, but plenty of other entertainment is

planned, too, including children’s games, a costume contest, music,

dancing, and food.

Haunted house hours are 6-11 p.m. Oct. 28-29 and 2-4 p.m. Oct.

30. Admission is free; donations are accepted. This year, the lodge

welcomes sponsorship and on-site support from the Mount Sterling

Chamber of Commerce and Carnage Haunt of Columbus.

According to Tom Corbin, a member of Lodge 269 and one of the

event organizers, Mount Sterling’s haunted house is making a name

for itself around the state, landing on multiple lists of haunted attractions.

This year alone, the Mount Sterling listing has garnered

40,000 hits on one of those statewide sites. Corbin said one of the

features that makes Mount Sterling’s offering stand out is the free

admission.

“We do it to give back to the village and surrounding area,” he

said, adding that the goal is to expand the haunted house into a

Halloween festival spanning more days and including more activities.

Expansion has already started this year in the form of new

spaces to explore in the haunted house. Participants will enter

through the front of the lodge, navigate

through a maze of hallways and rooms featuring

a zombie-infested swamp, creepy

dolls, a butcher shop, and more. Then, they

will make their way outside to a cemetery,

chainsaws, more zombies, and “all kinds of

special stuff,” Corbin explained.

That’s where the fun ended the past two

years. Not this year. After surviving the

cemetery, participants will go back inside to

a different part of the building with more

scare-filled rooms.

“Also new this year are lasers, a lot of

sound synthesizers, and at least three

smoke areas that we didn’t have last year,”

Corbin said.

With the expansion, the haunt requires

more volunteer actors—36 at any given time

as compared to 21 last year. Organizers welcome

anyone who would like to help out,

whether in acting roles, makeup, crowd control,

or concessions.

Speaking of concessions, food options include

kettle corn, hamburgers, hotdogs,

chips, soda, wassail, and possibly bean soup.

There is a charge for concessions.

The food, a deejay, children’s games, and

cornhole will be located outside in front of

the lodge. A bounce house is planned if the

weather cooperates.

Having a great time in the straw bed are Plain City residents Arthur Lewis and his younger sister, Annie.

Overseeing the fun was Cory DiCarro of Hilliard, who said it took children “quite a while” to warm up to the

potential of the straw bed. “They would stand there at first, unsure of it, but soon it became like WrestleMania

where they would jump off the bales and into the bed,” he said.

Living it up at

Shekinah fest

Shekinah Christian School in Plain City hosted its

first Fall Celebration for the community on Oct. 15.

“I am so glad we were able to offer something for

the entire community to enjoy,” said Amber Purdy,

the school’s advancement director.

After completing the 60-foot long inflated obstacle

course, Hope Hirchak, 7, gets ready to

race to the beginning to do it all over again.

Sarah Simmons and her son, Patrick, put the finishing

touches on their pumpkin at the pumpkin decoration station.

DD Board seeks renewal of 1-mill operating levy

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

The Madison County Board of Developmental

Disabilities (MCBDD) is seeking renewal

of a 1-mill, five-year property tax levy

for operation and maintenance of programs

for people with disabilities.

The levy generates approximately

$924,000 per year and represents about onethird

of MCBDD’s local tax revenue. The

cost to the taxpayer is $20.21 per year per

$100,000 property valuation. If the levy is

renewed, the cost will remain the same.

“Our system is unique compared to a lot

of other (social service) systems. We serve

individuals from the day they are born to

the day they pass away. We serve them

their entire lives,” said Susan Thompson,

MCBDD superintendent.

Those services include:

• Service Coordination—Staff members

help individuals and their teams to develop

a plan that allows the individuals to live according

to their needs and wishes. MCBDD

staffers serve as the main point of contact

and coordination between the person receiving

services and the entities providing services

and supports.

• Early Intervention: Staff works with parents

of infants and toddlers with disabilities

to enhance children’s learning through a collaborative,

home- and community-based

system.

• Preschool: Fairhaven School serves

nearly 200 students ages 3 to 5 years old.

• Transition: MCBDD collaborates with

local school districts and the Educational

Service Center to help individuals with disabilities

who are ages 14-22 with the transition

out of school. Services include career

exploration, job training, and more.

“You really need skills to be successful

with that transition,” Thompson said. “Our

staff does a fantastic job working with that

age group.”

• Community Employment: MCBDD helps

individuals with disabilities to find meaningful,

fulfilling employment that meets

their needs and desires.

“So many of our folks are working, paying

taxes, and giving back to our community,”

Thompson said. “It is such a valuable

thing to the individuals we serve, to be out

in the community and standing side by side

with you and I as we do our jobs.”

• Health Service Coordination: Staff members

help individuals with information

about medication, medical providers, and

possible interventions for existing conditions,

as well as health education and training

for individuals, parents and staff.

• Advocacy: MCBDD sponsors the Tiger

Advocacy Group, a group of adults with a

wide range of abilities who meet monthly to

empower and support one another.

“They are doing amazing things,” Thompson

said of the group.

• Transportation: This service is open to

individuals with disabilities, local agencies,

and all Madison County residents.

MCBDD’s vehicles transport passengers to

and from many different locations depending

on their needs. Most of the vehicles are

wheelchair accessible. Drivers are First Aid

and CPR certified.

• Special Olympics/Recreation: The Madison

County Tigers participate in a variety of

sports. Recreation services also include activities

like day and weekend trips, movies,

crafts, festivals and museums.

• Residential Support: Staff works directly

with individuals to make sure they have

what they need to live in the community in a

way that promotes their health and welfare.

The Chamber of Commerce is hosting a

costume contest for all ages on Oct. 30. The

children’s category is set for 2:30 p.m. followed

by the adult category at 3 p.m. Prizes

will go to the winners.

The haunted house is open to all ages.

Corbin noted that staff stationed at the start

and finish of the haunt will tell the actors to

go easy on any group that requests a tamer

version of the experience. New this year, organizers

will hand out glow sticks to children

who do not want to be scared by actors

as they walk through.

For more information or to volunteer,

contact Tom Corbin at (614) 530-3132.

• Adult Day Programming: Services include

help with daily living skills and activities,

personal care, vocational support, and

community-based employment support.

• Non-Medical Transportation: This service

provides transportation to day services, employment

services, or places of employment.

Thompson said MCBDD has enjoyed ongoing

support from the community for this

wide range of services.

“We truly appreciate every voter in Madison

County. We could not do what we do and

take care of the people we serve if the community

wasn’t so supportive of us,” she said.

Thompson praised the MCBDD staff for

doing good work.

“My firm belief is that we pass a levy

every day by the quality of services we provide.

If you take care of people and provide

good service, the taxpayers will support

you,” she said.

Hospital plans Lights of Love

Loved ones will be celebrated during the

holiday season, Nov. 15-Dec. 3, with Madison

Health Auxiliary’s Lights of Love. The

opportunity to recognize loved ones continues

with several donation options.

Outdoor evergreen trees, located in the

hospital’s main entrance driveway, will be

strung with holiday white lights. Pillar candles,

available in three different sizes, will

light the hospital’s new concourse and lobby

each evening. A large tree full of individual

lights will decorate the main lobby through

the holiday season. All of these donation options

may be reserved in the name of a loved

one, and signage can be viewed from the

windows both inside and outside the main

entrance of Madison Health. Tribute opportunities

for loved ones may be reserved all

season long.

“Lights of Love is a wonderful opportu-

nity to both honor and celebrate loved ones

during the holidays while supporting the

hospital and the Madison Health Auxiliary,”

said Ginger Kronk, executive director of the

Madison Health Foundation. “The outpouring

of support for this event is always humbling,

and we are thankful for the

generosity of our donors.”

As thanks is given for family and friends

during the holiday season, Madison Health

invites the public to attend the tree and candle

lighting ceremony at 5:30 p.m. Nov. 15

at the hospital’s main entrance. Following

the ceremony, the hospital is hosting a family-friendly

Season Spectacular which includes

Santa, trolley rides, shopping, music

by local youth choirs, and more.

Mount Sterling Masonic Lodge 269 is calling

its annual haunted house the “Misfit Haunt.”

Tolles working toward master facilities plan

Tolles Career & Technical Center in

Plain City has selected the architecture, interiors

and engineering firm Fanning

Howey to develop a master facilities plan.

The Tolles school board approved Fanning

Howey’s contract at its Sept. 15 meeting.

“We at Tolles are excited to begin this

master planning process on our 1974 facility,”

said Todd Hoadley, Ph.D., Tolles

CEO/superintendent. “After visiting several

schools over the summer, we are confident

that the professionals at Fanning Howey

are uniquely qualified to guide us through

this important undertaking.

“It is our mission at Tolles to provide our

students with a world-class career and technical

education. Ensuring that our careertech

learning labs are up to date and mirror

the workplace of local industry is vital to the

achievement of our mission.”

As part of the master plan, Fanning

Howey will evaluate how the existing building

must change to meet the future needs of

career-technical training in central Ohio.

The firm will use educational visioning, facilities

assessments and stakeholder engagement

sessions to develop multiple

master plan options. These options will result

in a final master plan recommendation

that will be made to the school board.

“Career and technical education is the

lifeblood of the local economy,” says Fanning

Howey project executive Jenn Fuller, AIA.

“We look forward to working with educators

and business leaders to develop facility solutions

that will lead to a strong local workforce

for decades to come.”

Fanning Howey was the architect for the

award-winning Tri Star Career Compact in

Celina, Ohio. The firm has also worked with

Vanguard Technology Center, Sentinel

Technology Center, Collins Career Center

and Delaware Area Career Center. Fanning

Howey’s Columbus-area clients include

Hilliard City Schools and Olentangy Local

Schools.

Master planning efforts began at the end

of September 2022.

In Ireland

Members of the Madison County Senior

Center took a nine-day trip to Ireland in

September. A total of 38 people traveled

with the group, visiting Guinness Brewery,

Waterford Crystal, St. Patrick

Cathedral, Blarney Castle, the Ring of

Kerry, Trinity College to see the Book of

Kells, and more. They also traveled to

the Cliffs of Moher, but it was too rainy

and foggy to see the cliffs; otherwise,

by all accounts, the trip was a wonderful

adventure. The motorcoach driver

and tour guide taught the group Irish

folk songs while driving through the

countryside and answered many questions

about Ireland throughout the trip.

Helping farmers deal

with stress on the job

With Madison County being a rural

community, most of us probably know at

least one farmer. Weather challenges, current

input prices and supply chain issues

have stress levels running high on many

farms. While we all deal with stress fairly

regularly, difficult times in farming can

cause an excessive amount of stress that

is hard for someone to process.

Most farms are family businesses that

have their own stressors, such as being

able to provide for one’s family and keeping

a farm that has been in the family for

several generations afloat. Also, many factors

that affect farms are ones over which

farmers have no control. I mentioned

weather and commodity prices, which are

the big ones, but farmers also deal with

disease and pest issues, working with

family, consumer perceptions, machinery

breakdown and so on.

The following warning signs may indicate

that a loved one is experiencing an

undue amount of stress. Being able to assess

the situation accurately may help

prevent a more serious situation. Jinnifer

Ortquist with Michigan State University

Extension outlines the warning signs of

stress in “How to Talk with Farmers

Under Stress,” available at MSU’s Managing

Farm Stress website.

1. Look for changes in emotions such as

a decrease in energy or show of enthusiasm

for the future, depression or loss of

humor.

2. Changes in attitudes or cognitive

skills—such as frustration over small

things or having trouble making decisions—could

indicate high stress levels.

3. Changes in behavior that indicate an

issue might show up in missed meetings

with coworkers, friends or businesses, difficulty

sleeping or becoming quieter than

usual.

4. All of these can culminate into

changes on the farm through a lack of care

for animals or crops, themselves or carelessness

in general.

What can you do to help? Being there

to listen, and I mean really listen, can go

a long way in helping the person deal with

and process what they are going through.

Ortquist suggests using the following

questions and statements while listening:

• I hear you saying ____ (repeat back

the main concerns the farmer is expressing).

• This sounds like a lot to manage.

How are you coping with this? (or, What

are you doing to take care of yourself?)

• It sounds like the current situation is

guest column

By Amanda Douridas

very difficult. What can I do to support

you?

• These are some tough challenges.

How can I help?

• Would it be helpful if we work together

on an action plan for how to manage

your concerns?

• Every situation is different. In a similar

situation on another farm, they tried

____. What do you think about that?

• Are there other people who have been

helpful or supportive when times have

been tough in the past? Are any of those

people able to help now?

Ortquist also recommends showing empathy

rather than sympathy. The difference

here is, when practicing empathy,

you make an effort to understand what

the person is going through and then talk

to them about ideas that may help them

work through their feelings or the situation.

For farmers, this could be helping

them come up with a long-term plan to

keep the farm in working order or recommending

someone who can help with this

goal. This may be another farmer who has

been through a similar situation, financial

advisors, or the Extension Office.

If conflict arises, remain calm and continue

to listen. Avoid placing blame on

anyone. Talk about what you are trying to

achieve and repeat statements back to the

farmer to ensure you understand what

they are saying.

Lastly, always follow up with the

farmer after your conversation and continue

to check in and listen. If you believe

the person is in eminent danger, directly

ask them if they have had thoughts of suicide.

This is uncomfortable but better than

the alternative. Call 911 and get help from

family and friends.

Tax Aide looking

for volunteers

AARP Foundation Tax-Aide, which suspended

operations in Madison County more

than two years ago as the COVID-19 pandemic

worsened, is preparing to return this

winter and is looking for volunteers to help

restart the service.

The all-volunteer program provides free,

no-strings-attached income tax preparation

to anyone, but places emphasis on serving

senior citizens. Before the shutdown, Tax-

Aide volunteers working at the Madison

County Emergency Management Agency

prepared tax returns for about 350 London

area residents each year.

Volunteers make sure clients receive

every tax benefit to which they are entitled

and often save them a significant amount of

money.

Volunteers come from all walks of life. No

experience is required. Tax-Aide provides

training, a computer to work on, and mentorship

throughout the tax season. For more

information, go to aarpfoundation.org/taxaidevolunteer

ADVISORY

The National Trade Association

we belong to has

purchased the following

classifieds. Determining

the value of their service

or product is advised by

this publication. In order

to avoid misunderstandings,

some advertisers do

not offer “employment”

but rather supply the

readers with manuals, directories

and other materials

designed to help

their clients establish mail

order selling and other

businesses at home. Under

NO circumstance

should you send any

money in advance or give

the client your checking,

license ID or credit card

numbers. Also beware of

ads that claim to guarantee

loans regardless of

credit and note that if a

credit repair company

does business only over

the phone it’s illegal to request

any money before

delivering its service. All

funds are based in US

dollars. Toll Free numbers

may or may not

reach Canada. Please

check with the Better

Business Bureau 614-

486-6336 or the Ohio Attorney

General’s Consumer

Protection Section

614-466-4986 for more

information on the company

you are seeking to

do business with.
