Fighting modern fires requires new tactics

By Katelyn Sattler

Staff Writer

Firefighters must practice fighting modern fires and not the

legacy fires of the past.

With this in mind, Hamilton Township firefighters recently

participated in a training burn at Wilburn farm.

“Modern fires burn black, hot, and very fast,” said Lt. Rafe

Britton, a firefighter/paramedic for Hamilton Township Fire

Department.

He said legacy fires were fueled by natural products compared

to the substances in modern fires in houses.

“Most stuff today is petroleum based,” said Britton. “So fires

from petroleum based products - such as plastics and neoprene -

when they burn, they burn black, they burn hot, and they burn

fast.”

He said in the past, if you had a fire in your house, you had

about 17 minutes on average to get out if you did not do anything

to stop the fire.

“When I first started, we were running into people going in and

out of their house, getting stuff as we were coming in and we

fought fire differently,” said Britton.

Today you have three to five minutes to get out of your house

until everything in the rooms combust all at once and the whole

place is on fire.

House fire training

“We don’t fight as many fires as we used to, so firefighters are

not getting the necessary fire experience,” said Britton. “So when

New Community Plan

The city of Canal Winchester is creating

a new Community Plan — a long-range

guiding policy document that will provide

a vision for future development in the city.

Topics include land use, community

character, housing, transportation, natural

resources, public services, and economic

development. The plan is being developed

through a series of collaborative

Community Workshops. The next Community

Workshop will be Nov. 9 and 10 in

the historic Old Town district.

City of CW and art guild team up

By Linda Dillman

Staff Writer

The arts are coming to Canal Winchester’s municipal

complex following an agreement reached between

the city and the Canal Winchester Art Guild.

The arts organization will provide the city with a

permanent hanging system for guild artists to display

their work in the municipal building gallery

space throughout 45 E. Waterloo St.

In turning to the city for gallery space, guild

treasurer and artist Carolyn Sittler said the group

wanted a permanent location–a place they could

call home–to showcase its member’s work.

“We originally presented the idea several years

ago when the city announced its plan to buy the Bob

McDorman Building,” said Guild President Sue

Finch. “We plan on having the first work installed in

early January. The exhibit will feature 2D work of

the entire membership. We may feature particular

artists, or themed work of the entire membership.”

Guild members previously displayed artwork at 1

N. High St., a tearoom formerly located at 25 N. High

St., Brew Dog, the Francis Steube Community Center,

and in mural form on buildings throughout the city.

“We plan to continue the mural program, as it is

favored by the public and city,” said Sittler. “The

first murals were installed the summer of 2015 and

every year since except for 2020, the year of COVID

restrictions.”

According to the agreement, CWAG will select

the artwork. Prior to the display, pieces selected for

exhibition will be approved by the city or its representative.

The guild is solely responsible for installation,

maintenance and removal of exhibited art,

which will be rotated every three months.

The guild currently has 26 members and was

organized in 1998 by a group of local artists. Its mission

is to stimulate interest in the visual arts

throughout the community of Canal Winchester and

to aid in the promotion of local artists through

exhibits and programs.

CWAG provides opportunities for its members to

grow in their own artistic development and to

encourage others as well. Sittler reported the only

requirement for membership is to have an appreciation

for art or desire to be an artist.

Guild members hear guest speakers on art related

topics and engage in workshops and Plein air creative

sessions. Venues are provided for artists to sell

their work and members help young artists

throughout the Canal Winchester school district.

“The guild has guided many individuals on how

to connect with their untapped creativity,” said

Sittler.

we get a structure like this (at Wilburn farm) for live

burns, we try to make the fires as close as possible to

real life because we want the younger guys to experience

the heat, the black smoke, and what it feels like

inside. Some of these guys have never seen fire.

There’ll be a point where everything combusts at once.

That usually happens in three to five minutes. If you’re

a firefighter, you need to recognize those conditions.”

The firefighters’ gear protects them up to about 500

degrees. The heat can get up to 1,100 degrees and hotter.

“That’s why I always tell my guys, when in doubt,

flow water. I’m not worried about water damage. I’m

worried about your life,” said Britton.

He said thermal imaging cameras help firefighters

“see” in a fire.

“You can’t see anything in fires now,” said Britton.

“We used to crawl in under the smoke on our backs

with the fire hose nozzle on our belts. We would push

ourselves with our feet back to the fire because those

fires didn’t put out near as much smoke as modern

fires will. The TIC can look through the smoke. And

some TICs are made to where it changes color. We

want to see orange. Orange is fire, orange is bad. If I

see red, that’s 800 to 1,000 degrees. If I see orange,

that’s 500 to 800 degrees.”

Fighting fire with foam

Fire trucks have 30 gallons of foam, which firefighters

call “wet water.”

“It breaks down the surface tension of the water and

makes the water more effective. It makes it sticky,”

said Britton. “A lot of times fires like this (training

burn) don’t need foam. Good old water’s about the best

thing you can have because it takes the heat out, and

it’ll create the steam.”

He said 30 gallons of foam added to 750 gallons of

water and makes it 2,100 gallons of water.

“It makes the water more effective,” said Britton. “I

have the same amount of water, but the foam is three

times more effective. I know a lot of times volunteer

departments don’t have money to buy new trucks with

foam systems. So they do a poor man’s foam by taking

five gallons of Dawn dishwashing liquid and pouring it

in the tank.”

Tactics

“When you have fire blowing out a second floor window,

you’ve got to think to yourself what gets water on

the fire the fastest,” said Britton “So when I get my

hose charged I take the front door, find the stairs, get

to the top of the stairs and make a turn into that room

faster than if I just hit it hard from outside and bounce

the water off the ceiling. This is a transitional attack.”

This slows down the fire.

“So the transitional is you hit it, you get a change

with your smoke, shut it off,” said Britton. “Go get it. If

I had fire coming out the front door, the fastest way to

that fire is hitting it right in the mouth. I’m going to

go right in, right where it’s coming out. I’m going to go

get it cause that’s where it’s at. I’m going to hit it. Used

to be they taught you to fight fire from the unburnt

side. I don’t care if it’s burnt or unburnt, wherever the

fire’s at, that’s where I’m going.”

He said you do not want the fire behind you, below

you, or above you. He said a fellow firefighter will

watch the conditions and let other firefighters know

where the fire is.

“We’re brothers. I always say brothers above all others,”

said Britton. “When we’re in there, it’s about the

guy to my side, the guy at my back.”

After the fire

Once the fire is out it’s time to pack up equipment

and clean up.

“We’ll get everything in order,” said Britton.

“Everybody will take a 20 minute hot shower. The reason

we do that is it opens your pores up. So any of the

carcinogens we have on us, it’ll open your pores up and

you wash it all off. Studies show about 20 minutes for

a good hot shower. Some departments that have a lot

of money, they bought saunas. And after the fires, the

guys will go into saunas. And it sweats it all out of

them.”

CW Schools promote leadership program

By Linda Dillman

Staff Writer

Canal Winchester Middle School students

are on a path to leadership.

The Leader in Me program is an integrated

approach to education which teaches

leadership, creates a culture of student

empowerment and aligns systems to drive

academic results. It is based on the “7

Habits of Highly Effective People,” written

by educator and author Stephen Covey.

Teachers completed training last year

and began implementing the program with

their students this year in 30 minute

Connections classes held every Tuesday. In

addition, students have weekly journals to

complete where they reflect on the seven

habits of highly effective people.

“Why bring this to our building?” asked

Principal Brian Moore during an Oct. 17

Canal Winchester Board of Education

meeting. “In looking at challenges and

information collected by our staff in 2018-

19, we were not seeing leadership qualities

in students. A lack of motivation, empathy–not

having those types of things. We

felt having this program would help bring

that to the forefront and help our students.”

Moore said the goal this year in measuring

the impact of the program is to compare

office and bus discipline referral data from

2018-19 and 2019-20 with data collected in

spring 2023.

“We want to empower students

to be independent learners and

active members in their community.”

- Brian Moore, principal

CW Middle School

“We want to empower students to be

independent learners and active members

in their community,” he said. “We want to

help students prepare themselves for high

school and their futures. To create selfmotivated

learners who are empathetic to

others’ differences. I think that last one is

the most important one we want to drive

home. We want to create a student-led culture

that helps teens help each other

through this process.”

According to Moore, results are already

becoming apparent in the building and he

said Leader in Me aligns perfectly with the

district’s Portrait of a Graduate. He also

reported the next initiative is to provide

parents and the community with ways to

have conversations at home with their children.

“We’re very happy where we’re at even

in the first months of school,” said Moore.

“Students are starting to write some really

neat things about how they can change

their lives and make things better. We’re

really excited.”

Water main break in Obetz

Plus planning & zoning news

By Katelyn Sattler

Staff Writer

There was a water main break along

Groveport Road near the west roundabout

near Alum Creek Drive that was slated for

repairs Oct. 24.

Obetz City Administrator Rod Davisson

said that, once water was restored in the

area, residents must boil their water before

using it. Affected areas will directly receive

a boil water advisory with more information.

Obetz City Council news

•Council approved the final plat for section

1 of the Buckstone Bend subdivision .

This means Pulte can sell the lots and start

building on the old Wilburn farm east of

Lockbourne Road and south of Rathmell

Road.

•Councilman Todd Gibbs said two

lights have been replace on Recreation

Trail and at Scioto Heights - the pole on

the roundabout on Alum Creek.

•Councilman Robert Kramer attended a

recent Hamilton Township trustees meeting

and learned the speed limit on Grebus

Road has been 50 mph, which Kramer said,

“Sounds insane.” It has since been lowered

to 25 mph.

•In the last two weeks, the Obetz Police

Department took 703 calls for service,

patrolled 2,258 miles, issued one speeding

citation, issued 12 other moving violations,

took nine offense reports, and one crash

report.

•In September, the Hamilton Township

Fire Department went on 73 EMS runs

and 29 fire runs.

Planning and Zoning

Variances for Centerpoint 7 on Bixby

Road, which is the last developable parcel

in Centerpoint Business Park, were discussed

at the Oct. 12 Obetz Planning &

Zoning Commission meeting.

The first variance was a request to

approve a gravel fire lane, which is not on

the applicant’s property. The applicant

must resolve the issue of the fire lane not

being on the property with the industrial

park association by executing an easement

to allow it, which they have not yet submitted.

Madison Township approved the gravel

fire lane.

Another variance was a request to

approve two dumpsters in the front of the

building.

The area is mixed residential and industrial.

Since there are residential property

nearby, the city of Obetz would like the

dumpsters to be screened and not visible

from Bixby Road.

The final variance requested was to

allow a rear yard set back of two feet.

While not in the variance request, the

development text shows stairs on the property

next to them.

The applicant must get permission to

have the stairs on the property next to

them.

www.columbusmessenger.com

Doug Kaiser with Exxcel Project

Management agreed to do those things.

Obetz City Councilman Derek Varney

requested the city have another chance to

review the final site plan.

The commission approved the request

for variances to allow the gravel fire lane,

to allow the two dumpsters on the front

yard with none visible from the front yard,

and also to approve the variance to allow a

two foot rear yard setback on the condition

that no part of the building, including

staircase, is on a parcel owned by another

entity.

Pulte Homes

Pulte Homes sought variances to allow

a temporary sign eight feet tall and 32

square feet in area for the new development,

Buckstone Bend.

The sign will sit at the southeast corner

of Lockbourne Road and Wilburn

Boulevard and remain until all lots are

sold.

Community Services Director Stacey

Boumis said, “The zoning code says the

maximum height is four feet. They’re asking

for eight feet. The zoning code limits

signage to 90 day. Obviously, we want

them to sell lots and get this development

filled up. So, they want to keep the sign up

until all the lots are sold, which is a reasonable

request.

Boumis said there would be no lighting

on this sign.

The commission approved the variance

to install the sign and let it remain until all

lots are sold at the Pulte property.

Buckstone Bend

Boumis said, “It’s exciting this

(Buckstone Bend Final Plat Section 1) is in

this phase already. They are requesting

final approval for 49 lots for section one of

their project. They are already in the

design phase of Section 2.”

The only issue Boumis noted was that

lot 48 on the preliminary plat is not on the

final plat but does not pose any issues.

“It just means it’s going to be platted at

an additional phase,” said Boumis.

Commissioner Dan Raver had concerns

that the corner lots.

Boumis said, “Well, that’s a corner lot,

so their fencing opportunities would be

extremely limited. Pulte will manage their

homeowners association for many years.

Pulte has the same fence restrictions as

Big Walnut Run, which is that all-aluminum

fence. And so it would be a quality

fence type, I believe, in this subdivision.”

Raver still wasn’t convinced the corner

lots met the frontage requirements.

Law Director Gene Hollins said, “It’s a

little over 49 feet of frontage for those (corner)

lots.”

Boumis said, “We would look at the rear

lot because of the curb because it’s in the

right-of-way. These were the sizes that

were approved before. They haven’t

changed anything from their original submittal.”

The commission approved the Final

Plat Section 1 for Buckstone Bend.

Compost those pumpkins

Picking pumpkins and gourds to decorate

your yard and doorstep is part of

many families fall traditions. While it’s

easy to toss old pumpkins and gourds into

the trash, doing so creates unnecessary

food waste and wastes natural resources.

There’s a better way to use those pumpkins.

Below, the Solid Waste Authority of

Central Ohio (SWACO) is sharing simple

ways you can safely dispose of your old

pumpkins and gourds while doing your

part to care for the environment.

• Eat Your Pumpkins: When it comes to

preventing food waste, SWACO’s Save

More Than Food campaign wants you to

know that eating food is best. You probably

can attest to how tasty roasted pumpkin

seeds can be, but did you know that uncarved,

fresh pumpkins can be used to make

pies, breads, soups and more.

• Feed Local Wildlife in the Winter:

Birds love to nosh on little pumpkin

snacks. Once you scrape out the flesh and

seeds and remove any paint or remnant

wax (in the case of a jack-o-lantern candle),

cut the pumpkin into small pieces that

could fit into a bird feeder or dish. Toss out

any pieces that are starting to grow mold,

as those are unsafe to consume. Be aware

that other critters may want a pumpkin

snack, so if you live in a more urban community

and want to avoid inviting more

squirrels, raccoons, deer or other pests in

your yard, this option may not be ideal for

you.

• Donate to Local Farms: Feeding farm

animals can be expensive, so donating

pumpkins and gourds to local farms is a

simple way to support local farmers. Plus,

common farm animals like cows and chickens

love to snack on them. Call your local

community farms to see who may be

accepting pumpkins or consider posting in

local Facebook or NextDoor groups to connect

with others who are collecting these

items for local farms.

• Compost at Home: Before you toss

your pumpkins in your backyard to decompose,

be sure to clean them thoroughly,

removing any seeds or any other non-compostable

materials (e.g., decorations, accessories,

stickers, etc.). Also, scrape the skin

off any pumpkin that has paint or marker.

Cut the pumpkins into pieces so it’s easier

for them to break down in your compost

pile. Don’t worry if it doesn’t happen

overnight — it takes about 8 to 12 weeks for

pumpkin pieces to break down completely.

Drop Off Pumpkins at Local Collection

Sites: Make a difference this fall when you

drop off your harvest vegetables at one of

these participating pumpkin and gourd collection

locations:

•City of Columbus: Nov. 1 — 30 (Monday

— Friday) at the Division of Refuse

Collection, 2100 Alum Creek Drive,

between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m.

•Dublin: Oct. 17 — Dec. 9 at the Dublin

Service Center, 6555 Shier Rings Road

•Grandview: Oct. 29 - Nov. 11 at 1525

Goodale Boulevard (next to the food waste

drop-off)

•Grove City: Oct. 31 — Nov. 27 at Fryer

Park, 3899 Orders Road

www.columbusmessenger.com

•Hilliard: Oct. 28 — Dec. 2 at 3770

Municipal Way (next to the food waste

drop off)

•New Albany: Nov. 1 — Dec. 2 at New

Albany Public Service, 7800 Bevelhymer

Road

•Upper Arlington: Oct. 29 — Dec. 18

at Fancyburg Park, 3375 Kioka Avenue

Intact and decaying pumpkins, carved

jack-o’-lanterns and gourds are all accepted.

Please remove candles and avoid dropping

off pumpkins that have been painted

or drawn on with permanent markers.

Bed Tax Grant Program

The city of Canal Winchester is accepting

applications for its 2023 Transient

Occupancy Tax (Bed Tax) Grant Program.

The grant program is open to non-profits

or private organizations located within

the city of Canal Winchester to help fund

projects to enhance Canal Winchester for

residents and/or visitors to the community.

Grants are funded with the hotel/motel tax

revenue collected by the city of Canal

Winchester.

Canal Winchester has levied a 6 percent

transient occupancy tax (bed tax) that is

imposed when lodging is furnished to transient

guests by a hotel, motel, or similar

business. One half (3 percent) of this tax is

contributed to Destination: Canal

Winchester, the designated visitors and

convention bureau for Canal Winchester.

The second half of the tax is designated to

fund the annual Bed Tax Grant Program.

Grant applications are competitively

reviewed and awards will be made to those

projects meeting all requirements and the

intent of the program. Grant applications

are available on the city’s website.

Completed applications must be submitted

by mail or email to the attention of the

finance director no later than Nov. 30.

Canal Winchester City Council will make

award determinations in December. Award

checks will be drawn in early 2023 and all

awards must be used within the 2023 calendar

year. Questions regarding the grant

program or application process should be

directed to Amanda Jackson, finance director,

city of Canal Winchester at 614-837-

6937 or

ajackson@canalwinchesterohio.gov.

Senior Services levy

Voters will decide on the proposed

Franklin County Senior Services levy

renewal on Nov. 8.

The proposed five year tax levy renewal

is for 1.75 mills, $0.175 per $100 of valuation,

commencing in 2022. Officials state it

is not a tax increase.

The levy provides funding for Franklin

County Senior Options and its services

designed to help seniors remain safely at

home. These services include meals-onwheels,

transportation to doctor appointments,

and emergency response buttons.

The existing senior services levy will

expire at the end of 2022. The senior levy is

the main funding source for Senior Options

programs.

MORPC regional goals

The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning

Commission (MORPC) is seeking comments

from the public on the proposed

regional goals for the 2024-2050

Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP)

for the Columbus Urbanized Area.

The MTP is a long-range planning document

that identifies transportation priorities,

strategies, and projects over the next

two decades. Updated on a four-year cycle,

MORPC coordinates the development of

the MTP with communities throughout

central Ohio and with other local, state,

and federal agencies.

The draft goals include:

•By guiding investment in transportation

and mobility infrastructure and services

in central Ohio, the MTP identifies

strategies to advance the following six

goals:

•Position central Ohio to attract and

retain economic opportunity to prosper as a

region and compete globally.

•Create sustainable neighborhoods to

improve all residents’ quality of life.

•Provide transportation and mobility to

benefit the health, safety, and welfare of all

people.

•Reduce per capita energy consumption

and promote alternative fuel resources to

increase affordability and resilience of

regional energy supplies.

•Protect natural resources and mitigate

infrastructure vulnerabilities to maintain a

healthy ecosystem and community.

•Increase regional collaboration and

employ innovative transportation solutions

to maximize the return on public expenditures.

“Goal setting is step one in the planning

process,” said MORPC Transportation

Study Director Nick Gill. “We invite the

public to weigh in on this milestone and

help set the direction of the plan.”

The goals will direct actions and strategies

used to measure progress over time

with respect to transportation projects in

central Ohio. Next steps include defining

measurable outcomes with indicators to

track success. The plan is scheduled for

completion in 2024 and is being conducted

by MORPC in concert with other activities

in the region.

“These goals provide a shared vision for

our region to work toward as we develop

transportation projects and initiatives and

will help us to determine which projects to

advance based on their ability to advance

the goals,” said MORPC Associate Director

of Transportation Planning Maria Schaper.

Presentations on the draft goals can be

requested by calling Maria Schaper at

(614) 233-4153 or by emailing

mschaper@morpc.org or mtp@morpc.org.

The draft goals can also be viewed on

MORPC’s website.

The public is encouraged to provide comments

or additional information on the proposed

goals by 5 p.m. on Nov. 4 by email to

mtp@morpc.org or in writing to MORPC,

111 Liberty Street, Suite 100, Columbus,

Ohio 43215, Attn: MTP.

significant decline in the total number of

home sales and in the total sales amount

for the month of September, though the

median sale price still rose 6 percent.

The September total sales amount was

$412.6 million, a decline of 29 percent compared

to the same month last year.

Likewise, the total number of sales was

1,371, a decrease of 705 compared to

September 2021. The median sale price

increased slightly to $265,000, a 6 percent

increase compared to September 2021.

The numbers show an accelerating

trend of a cooling housing market: In

August, the total number of sales was

1,696, a decline of 390 compared to August

2021, and the total sales amount declined

13 percent, to $524.4 million.

“The Franklin County housing market

is still solid, though it is mirroring national

trends of a market cool-down,” Franklin

County Auditor Michael Stinziano said.

“The median price did still rise, showing

the continued need for more affordable

housing in our community.”

Most municipalities had similar numbers

to the county as a whole, but not all of

them. In Bexley, the total sales amount

increased 29 percent, and the median sale

October 30, 2022 - SOUTH & CANAL WINCHESTER MESSENGER - PAGE 7

price rose 25 percent. In Canal Winchester,

the total sales amount increased 69 percent,

and the median sale price increased

11 percent.

The Real Estate Dashboard is updated

monthly and uses intuitive GIS mapping to

show sales activity and statistics for homes

across Franklin County. The tool can break

down sales data by municipality, school

district, or Columbus area commission, giving

homeowners a comprehensive view of

sales activity in their neighborhoods.

September 2022 Franklin County sales

by the numbers:

•1,371 total number of sales, a decrease

of 705 compared to September 2021;

•$265,000 median sale price, an

increase of 6 percent compared to

September 2021;

•$412.6 million in total sales, a decrease

of 29 percent compared to September 2021.

Long active in his community, Dobos has

He has two adult special needs sons, both currently

living in group homes.

“I offer my common-sense values and solutions as your

Representative, I’ll fight for our families so they can build a

better future for themselves. I will lead the way with

economic, educational, and workforce development

from Nov. 7-11 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Fire hydrant flushing may cause temporary

inconveniences such as a reduction in

water pressure and discolored water.

Discolored water is not a threat to the public’s

health, however, it will stain laundry

and if consumed may have an unpleasant

taste. To prevent this from happening, do

not wash laundry and have plenty of drinking

water on hand. Residents are asked to

ensure that their vehicles are away from

the hydrants.

Taking note of what once was

Recently while driving along Groveport Road from

Groveport to Canal Winchester I noticed a house that sat

along the road was just...gone.

It’s a house I

Editor’s Notebook

Rick

Palsgrove

passed by more

times than I can

count as I’ve

traveled back and forth between

the two towns on Groveport Road

throughout my life. Now it was

demolished, gone without a trace

with only straw and grass seed filling

the space where it once was.

It puzzled me that, though I drove by this house many

times and knew it was there, I realized I could not now

adequately describe what it looked like. It existed but

with no personal meaning for me. But I was aware of it

enough to notice when it disappeared.

I think we do that sometimes in life. We take for

granted that something will always be there and sometimes

fail to properly take note of its presence.

Other times there are things we know of and appreciate

that disappear, too. There once was a tree at the corner

of Cron Drive and Wirt Road in Groveport that

guarded an opening in the fence leading to the Groveport

Elementary school yard. Throughout my life I must have

gone through that fence opening and brushed up against

that large, old tree hundreds of times. It was there well

into my adult years. Then one day it was gone along with

the hole in the fence. Like it was never there. A strong,

tall tree - one does not think about it disappearing. But it

did. It was one of many familiar old trees we get to know

in each of our lives that course through the cycle of their

leafy life and pass on like all living things.

Buildings have their life spans, too. From time to time

I think about the old Groveport Madison High School

that once sat along South Hamilton Road. Buildings like

schools and churches seem permanent because they play

such a large role in many people’s lives. But they can disappear,

too. That old high school (since replaced by the

new high school at the site) fulfilled its role for more than

50 years before falling to the wrecking ball a few years

ago. Driving by I can still sense a shadow of where the old

high school sat. Looking at the new parking lot and lawn

of the new high school that took its place, I still know

where the gym was, where the main front hallway was,

and so on. It is an odd feeling to out live one’s high school.

Buildings come and go. Trees and plants bloom and

eventually are spent. Animals and favorite pets pass on.

People fade out of our lives or pass away.

It happens to all of us. Here one day, gone tomorrow,

and we leave a small void in the spaces we once inhabited.

A void to be filled by something new. Change is constant

and permanence an illusion.

Past, present, and future are intertwined and bonded

by memory.

Rick Palsgrove is managing editor of the Messenger.

Romantic comedy uses star power

A vital piece that has been missing in the romantic

comedies of late — besides a truly original plot — is the

lack of genuine movie stars featured within.

To be fair and kind

The Reel Deal

Dedra

Cordle

to the up-and-coming

actors who are cast in

their stead, they do an

admirable job of selling

these products of fluff to the

masses, but it is the presence of

the movie star that makes the

standard rom-com pop.

“Ticket to Paradise”, a romantic comedy that understands

the power that stars can hold and uses it. 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. It’s not even that romantic, but

Clooney is smiling his crinkly smile and Roberts is giving

her clarion call laugh. It’s not particularly good,

but it doesn’t really have to be because these beautiful

people are throwing their sparkle 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 charming. With the shininess

of the stars and the magnificence 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

still gripes about his ex-wife to anyone willing to lend

an ear. Roberts plays Georgia Cotton, a gallerist semiliving

with her pilot boyfriend, who still gripes about

her ex-husband to anyone.

The bitter exes raised 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 paid to send her on a paid vacation

to Bali before she has to get used to the soul-sucking

grind of adulthood. Then Lily meets a wonderful man

named Gede (Maxime Bouttier) and they plan to

marry within a week’s time.

Not wanting their daughter to make the same mistake

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 the impending nuptials. While

the film does not acknowledge how awful their mission

is and how off the deep-end they are, the movie stars

play their parts so well that they manage to infuse

their characters with pathetic charm so you do not

hate them for their occasional bouts of wretchedness.

This romantic comedy splits 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 couples could use more romantic chemistry,

it’s hard to deny the adults are the most interesting

pairing to watch, much of it due to they were given

the most material to work with and had the characters

who were the most developed. “Ticket to Paradise” is a

movie where you see how much fun the actors had

filming it and that translates out of the screen and

with the audience. But with its over-reliance on the

star power of Clooney and Roberts, aspects of the film

suffer from a lack of attention paid to dialogue or

development of secondary characters.

If you want to turn off your brain and watch beautiful

people do ugly things and then beautify themselves

again in a majestic location, this might be something

you want to check out.

BE PREPARED FOR EMERGENCY

If your child knocks out a tooth

and is hysterical and in pain, a

parent’s main concern would

naturally be comforting the child,

but saving the tooth should also

be an important element in this

crisis.

First, try to find the tooth after it

has been dislodged. Do not to

touch the root area. This is the

living part of the tooth and can be

easily damaged. Time is essential.

A tooth’s life span will probably

not last more than 30 minutes

unless it is properly handled.

If the tooth cannot be replanted

immediately, and the child is

composed, have him or her place

the tooth under the tongue. The

environment of the mouth will

protect the tooth and the chances

that replantation will be successful

are greater. If the child cannot

keep the tooth is his or her mouth,

place the tooth in fresh milk. If

milk is not available, wrap the

tooth in plastic or foil. Do not let it

dry out and do not put it in plain

water. Then get to the dentist as

quickly as possible.

Prepared as a public service

to promote better dental health.
