Trunkor-Treat

Messenger photos by Dedra Cordle

On Oct. 21, dozens of creatures across

the region descended upon Town Center

Dentistry in Grove City as the dental

practice teamed up with the NovoCaine

Lounge to host the first annual Cars and

Cocktails Truck-or-Treat event. Billed as

a unique experience for children and

adults alike, it was equal parts a classic

car show, a light happy hour for adults,

and a place to score some delicious

treats in a safe place prior to the traditional

trick-or-treat night. “We just wanted

to put on a different event that the

entire community could enjoy,” said Dr.

John Dubos. Shown here (top right)

immensely enjoying the festivities are

Wyatt Yantis (left) and Kamden Baum.

Although the boys did not know each

other prior to this event, they became

fast friends, bonding over their love of

balloon swords and comic book superheroes.

grab a treat with their dinosaur hands.

plan for condos

By Andrea Cordle

Grove City Editor

Grove City Council approved legislation

that would bring more condominiums for

empty nesters to the community.

At the Oct. 17 meeting, council

approved the rezoning and development

plan for Hickory Creek, located north of

Orders Road and west of Southern Grove

Drive. The first piece of the legislation

changed the zoning code from single family

to planned development. The second piece

of legislation approved a development plan to allow

Pulte Homes of Central Ohio to construct an 81-unit

condominium community on 35 acres of land.

According to Jim Hilz, with Pulte Homes, this plan

will include detached patio home lots for empty

nesters. The development plan also features 12 acres

of land that would be set aside for open or green space.

Hilz said there will be a multi-use path that runs

throughout the community and connects to nearby

developments. The community will have a homeowner’s

association and condo association in place. The

cost of the units will be upward of $400,000.

As part of the legislation, Pulte Homes has agreed

to contribute just over $500,000 to the cost of improvements

to Orders Road and a waterline extension.

There was one hiccup in the development plan that

council addressed.

Council president Ted Berry said he was concerned

about the bike path route and the lack of connection in

certain areas. According to the proposed plan, the bike

path loops around a pond and has north and south connectivity

but lacks an east and west connection.

“You spend all this money on a path that goes

nowhere,” said Berry. “As a biker, I would never use

that path.”

To remedy the issue, council made two amendments

to the plan that would direct the developer to put bike

path pavement markings on Williamsburg Court and

Haley Way, as well as install caution light beacons at

Orders Road and Hickory Creek Drive. Council members

believe this will allow bicyclists to cross Orders

Road safely by alerting drivers that cyclists may be

nearby.

Councilwoman Christine Houk asked if there were

data that proves the pavement markings, or the caution

lights add a layer of safety.

Kevin Teaford, the safety director for the city of

Grove City, said he did not have that type of date but

said there have been no crash problems (involving

cyclists) in the southern part of the city. However,

Teaford cautioned that the likelihood of accidents go

up with new development that could cause an increase

in traffic.

Council also approved (with a 3-2 vote) a preliminary

development plan for the Courtyards at Mulberry

Run, located at 2110 White Road, near McDowell

Road.

This plan would include more than 70 condominiums

broken up with 40 lots of the north side of the

property and 34 units on the south side of the land. It

also includes a clubhouse and space for recreation, like

a pickleball court. The cost for the homes would start

around $300,000.

Council members Christine Houk and Mark Sigrist

voted against the legislation.

Houk said she struggled with the density in that

location and said the plan felt like it was “putting a

square peg in a round hole.”

The councilwoman also had concerns about the

infrastructure on White Road being able to support the

extra traffic from this size of a development.

Sigrist said this project was difficult to

envision.

“I don’t get the benefit for our city and

how it makes our city better,” he said.

The preliminary plan was able to move

forward with three votes, however, council

members said there are safety issues that

would need to be addressed before the final

approval.

Councilman Roby Schottke expressed

concern regarding traffic into the community.

He suggested adding a deceleration lane

on White Road into the community. Joel

Rhoades, who was in attendance representing

the applicant EC New Vision Ohio LLC,

said a traffic study was conducted and that

study said a deceleration lane was not warranted.

Berry said he had concerns about the

crossing to get from the north side of the

development to the south side. He asked

about adding a traffic signal. Rhoades again

said the traffic study did not show the need

for a traffic signal.

At a recent Jackson Township board of

trustees meeting, several residents who

live on Hibbs Road were in attendance to

bring forth a number of safety issues they

say have been plaguing their community.

Among the most egregious things they

said they have seen is semi-trucks traveling

through their residential road, posing a

real danger to the people who live in the

area and the motorists who are sharing the

roadway.

Making the issue even more precarious,

said resident Noreen Hartmann, is the fact

that the legal speed limit on Hibbs Road is

40 miles per hour. She said at that speed, it

makes it seem as if the semi-trucks are barreling

down the narrow road that features

several sharp turns.

“It is so dangerous,” she told the

trustees.

According to Hartmann, she reached out

to a number of county and state agencies to

see if they could fix the problem by posting

additional ‘no thru-truck’ signs on the

neighboring state routes or even reduce the

speed limit altogether. She said she did not

receive much guidance to quell her concerns.

“Something is going to happen (with all

of the trucks using Hibbs Road) and I am so

frustrated because no one that I’ve talked

to wants to say they’re responsible for the

safety on the road.”

The trustees said they were unaware of

the issue and vowed to take action.

Shortly after that meeting in

September, chairman Dave Burris said

they reached out to the county engineer’s

office to request a speed study for Hibbs

Road. He said although they knew that it

would not stop some motorists from speeding

should it be reduced, they believed it

would be a “step in the right direction” to

lessen the problem.

At the Oct. 11 regular meeting, the

board announced that they had received

the results of the study that was conducted

by the county engineer’s office. According

to Township Administrator Shane

Farnsworth, it was determined that the

speed limit on Hibbs Road would not be

lowered at this time.

“Although we are extremely appreciative

of the county engineer’s office for

responding to our request and turning this

report around very quickly, we were surprised

by some of the results in the report

regarding speeds and cut-through truck

traffic they witnessed (while doing field

studies),” said Farnsworth.

According to the report, the average

traffic counts on Hibbs Road reached

between 1,300 and 1,500 motorists daily

with speeds that averaged between 39 and

43 miles per hour. Hibbs Road residents

said they had issues with the information

that was collected as the counts were conducted

on June 21, 2022 — months before

the bridge on State Route 665 was closed.

Resident Bill Hartmann said the

amount of traffic — semi-truck and common

vehicular — has been increasing since the

bridge was closed. He said it is his fear that

it will not lessen even when the bridge

opens because of the residential and commercial

growth the surrounding area is

experiencing.

“They’ll just use our road even more as a

cut-through (to dodge traffic on state routes

104 and 665),” he said.

The residents and the township officials

also said they had concerns with the time

the field studies were conducted last month

— the Hartmann’s said peak semi-truck

traffic is between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. — and

the crash history data.

According to Michael Andrako, a county

mobility engineer, there have been 11 accidents

on Hibbs Road in the past three

years — nine of which were property damage

only crashes and two were injury

crashes. He added that these numbers are

www.columbusmessenger.com

Government Focus

Trustees share results of Hibbs Road traffic study

$100 Preventative Maintenance (tune up)

reported crashes and incidents only.

“We know that there are probably many

more unreported crashes or incidents that

have occurred, but we can only use the data

that has been reported,” he said.

Andrako said the reported crash history

is just one of the elements that are used to

determine whether the speed limit on a

road should be reduced. In addition to the

crash history, the engineer’s office also

takes into account the daily traffic numbers,

the observed speeds in field studies,

and the characteristics of the road. He said

they compile all of that data and compare it

with speed zone evaluation sheets established

by the state department of transportation

and software tools used by the

Federal Highway Administration.

He said both of the state and federal

procedures determined that the speed limit

on Hibbs Road should remain at 40 miles

per hour.

Although the speed limit will not be

changed at present, the county said they

will work with the state and the township

to place additional safety features on the

road. For instance, Andrako said they can

post no-thru truck signs on the state routes

to alert semi-truck drivers that they are

not permitted to use Hibbs Road.

Farnsworth said he believes that step

would be beneficial for the safety of the residents

on Hibbs Road.

“The problem is once (the semi-truck

drivers) turn onto Hibbs Road, they are

committed because there is no turning

point,” he said. “So, we will keep trying to

work with ODOT and working up the food

chain of ODOT to get those signs onto the

state routes so they can see them well

before they get to the intersections on 665

and 104.”

The trustees said they have also spoken

with the county sheriff’s office to post special

duty officers on Hibbs Road during

peak traffic hours. Burris said he has even

spoken with the county about posting

weights and measures officials on Hibbs

Road to weigh commercial trucks should

they cut-through.

“It’s only going to take one (citation

being issued) because they’re going to tell

all their buddies ‘I just got fined x number

of dollars’” he said. “And then they won’t be

going through there anymore because

those tickets are not cheap.”

The residents of Hibbs Road said that

while they appreciate all of the steps that

are being taken to reduce the number of

safety issues on the road, they do want the

township to continue to work with the

county and state to have the speed limit

lowered.

The trustees said they will continue to

work with any agency in order to improve

personal safety for the residents.

“We’re trying all we can within our

realm of what we can do and we’re not

going to stop,” said Burris. “We are not

going to stop.”

Tornado siren relocated

With the closing of Pleasant View

Middle School, the Pleasant Township tornado

siren has been relocated. The siren

has to be relocated to a new area on the

property.

According to Pleasant Township Fire

Chief Dave Whiting, it has been relocated

to the back of the property at Pleasant

View. The township is responsible for the

cost of moving the siren which was originally

estimated at between $2,600 and

$3,000. Previously the trustees had

approved the expenditure of $3,000 for the

siren but according to Whiting, they

require an additional $414.17 for the project.

The trustees did approve the additional

expense for the tornado siren project.

The county will continue to maintain

the siren at an approximate cost of $1,000.

It has been determined that this is still the

optimal location for the siren.

news and notes

Tax-Aide volunteers needed

AARP Foundation Tax-Aide, which had

to scale back operations at the Grove City

Church of the Nazarene because of the

pandemic, hopes to return to full strength

next tax season and is looking for volunteers.

The all-volunteer program provides free

income tax preparation to all comers, but

places a special emphasis on serving

senior citizens. Before the pandemic, taxaide

volunteers prepared tax returns for

more than 800 Grove City area residents

each year.

Volunteers come from all walks of life,

from accountants to warehouse workers.

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

or call 1-888-

227-7669.

Property Tax

Assistance Program

The Franklin County Auditor’s office is

now accepting applications for the

Property Tax Assistance Program (PTAP)

from low-income older homeowners who

need help paying their 2022 first-half

property taxes, said Auditor Michael

Stinziano.

The PTAP provides emergency one-time

property tax assistance to low-income

homeowners age 60 or older and is a nonprofit

entity. New this year, the PTAP

application can be submitted online.

PTAP applications are reviewed by a

board that includes the Franklin County

auditor’s office, Franklin County treasurer’s

office, Franklin County Office on

Aging, Central Ohio Area Agency on

Aging, and several other partner organizations.

“PTAP can help older residents on fixed

incomes keep their homes despite rising

home values,” Stinziano said. “I encourage

anyone who needs assistance and qualifies

to apply to the program.”

Applications are due by Nov. 18.

Information about the program and an

application can be found on the auditor’s

office website, franklincountyauditor.com.

The PTAP was founded in 1987 and has

supported hundreds of qualifying homeowners

in Franklin County.

In Entertainment

Romantic comedy uses star power to shine

A vital piece that has been missing in

the romantic comedies of late — besides a

truly original plot, that is — is the lack of

genuine movie stars featured within. To be

fair and kind to the up-and-coming actors

and the well-known faces who are cast in

their stead, they mostly do an admirable

job of trying to sell these products of pure

fluff to the masses, but it is the presence of

the movie star that can make even the

most standard rom-com on the lot truly pop

off the screen.

“Ticket to Paradise”, a romantic comedy

that was released solely into the theaters

on Oct. 21, understands the power that

they can hold and uses it to their advantage.

Truthfully, it doesn’t have a great

script, but it doesn’t have to have one

because George Clooney and Julia Roberts

are speaking its words. And it’s not even

that romantic, but it doesn’t have to be

because Clooney is smiling his crinkly

smile and Roberts is giving her clarion call

laugh. Heck, it’s not even particularly good,

but it doesn’t really have to be because

these sparkling and beautiful people are

throwing their sparkle and beauty around

in a movie whose locale is as equally

sparkling and beautiful.

This is a film that knows it is not a great

piece of cinematic art, but it effortlessly

wields the power of the movie star and

somehow manages to be something that is

light and fun and mostly charming. With

the shininess of the stars and the magnificent

of its beachscapes, it lulls you into

looking past its general ho-hum-ness and

asks that you bask in a world that you

could never dream of living — or afford to,

for most of us.

In “Ticket to Paradise,” Clooney plays

David Cotton, a bachelor architect living in

Chicago who, after nearly 20 years of being

divorced, still gripes about his first and

only wife to any co-worker who is willing to

lend an ear — or just be within his general

vicinity. For her part, Roberts plays

Georgia Cotton, a gallerist semi-living with

her pilot boyfriend who, after nearly 20

years of being divorced, still gripes about

her first and only husband to any co-worker

who is willing to lend an ear — or just be

within her general vicinity.

Although they are bitter exes to the

core, they have managed to raise a nearly

perfect daughter Lily (Kaitlyn Dever) who

has just graduated from law school and is

on her way to a prestigious job at the top

law-firm in Illinois. To celebrate her accomplishments,

David and Georgia have paid

“BEST NEW YEARS PARTY IN TOWN”


18 th Annual

Mike Albert

and

The Big E. Band

to send her and her best friend Wren (Billie

Lourd) on an all-expense paid vacation to

Bali for two months before they have to get

used to the soul-sucking grind of adulthood.

Feeling as if they did a good deed by

working together on this project, the (when

put together) demonic duo agree to never

see or speak to the other again — and they

do just that until Lily shoots off an email

saying she met a wonderful local man

named Gede (Maxime Bouttier) and they

plan to marry within a weeks’ time.

Not wanting their daughter to make the

same mistake as they did — David and

Georgia married right out of college and

she put her career plans on hold to support

her family — they strike a rare truce and

agree to work together to sabotage their

impending nuptials from the inside. While

the film does not fully acknowledge how

truly awful their mission is and how off the

deep-end they are, the genuine movie stars

play their parts so well that they manage

to infuse their characters with some

pathetic charm so you do not outright hate

them for their occasional bouts of

wretchedness.

This romantic comedy likes to split its

time between the two couples, one fresh in

the bloom of love and the other, well, decidedly

not — or so it seems. Over the course of

trying to crush their daughter’s heart and

spirit, the latter pair can’t help but get

swept up in the magic of the island and the

unresolved issues that have frayed their

once loving friendship and romance.

Although both of the couples could use a bit

more of a romantic chemistry, it’s hard to

deny that the adults are the most interesting

pairing to watch, much of it due to the

The Reel Deal

Dedra Cordle

fact that they were

given the most

material to work

with and had the

characters who were

the most developed.

It also doesn’t hurt

that they are played

by movie stars who know how to chew the

fat from any scene.

“Ticket to Paradise” is a movie where

you can see how much fun the actors had

filming it, and for the most part, that translates

out of the screen and with the audience.

But with its over-reliance on the star

power of Clooney and Roberts, some

aspects of the film suffer from a lack of

attention paid to other important elements,

like the dialogue or development of secondary

characters you are also supposed to

care about.

Overall, this film isn’t a bad one but if

you are able to withstand the presence of

Clooney and Roberts together again, you’ll

probably notice the cracks in the foundation

a bit more. But if you just want to turn

off your brain and watch beautiful people

do ugly things and then put in some work

to beautify themselves again in a majestic

location, then this might be something you

want to check out when you get a chance.
