The Greater Hilltop Area Shalom Zone hosted its first annual<br />

‘Celebrate Hilltop’ event on Nov. 5 at Westgate Park.<br />

Established by the local non-profit organization’s board to<br />

“bring a bit of joy to the community,” the festive gathering had<br />

live music, arts and crafts, outdoor activities, resource booths,<br />

and an impromptu petting zoo as several residents brought<br />

their exotic birds and friendly goats to the party. Shown here<br />

are a few scenes captured at the celebration.<br />

Bottom right, Sandy Harper and her goat Buckley take a brief<br />

rest in the grass. Harper said the 8-month-old Alpine goat loves<br />

being outdoors and meeting new people throughout the community.<br />

“He’s an emotional support animal and a completely<br />

shameless attention seeker,” she said. “He always wants to go<br />

to these events so he can get affection and bring out smiles in<br />

everyone.”<br />

Commissioners<br />

want input on<br />

Eakin school site<br />

By Dedra Cordle<br />

Staff Writer<br />

The Greater Hilltop Area Commission<br />

wants to be involved in the future planning<br />

of the Eakin Elementary School site.<br />

At its meeting on Nov. 1, the commission<br />

unanimously approved a request from<br />

its human services and education committee<br />

to send correspondence to city officials,<br />

the local school district, and other government<br />

entities to inquire about holding<br />

informal discussions with the body on the<br />

future use of the premises.<br />

Committee chair James White said its<br />

members felt it was necessary to ask that<br />

SCHOOL SITE<br />

Continued from page 1<br />

a series of meetings with community stakeholders be<br />

established because they are concerned that the site<br />

will sit barren if and when a new Eakin Elementary<br />

School is constructed. He added that it was their belief<br />

that the grounds could be used to build facilities that<br />

would benefit the entire community.<br />

“The Greater Hilltop Area Commission has identified<br />

a lack of resources within our community west of<br />

Demorest Road,” said White. “That area (where Eakin<br />

Elementary is currently located) is over two miles<br />

away from the closest library, recreation center, and<br />

community pool.<br />

“The commission has also recognized that the police<br />

substation for Precinct 10 is landlocked within Big<br />

Run (Park) and removed from the community.”<br />

With these areas of concern in mind, the inquiry<br />

seeking to establish a series of meetings regarding the<br />

feasibility of building such facilities was sent to the<br />

city of Columbus, the recreation and parks department,<br />

the city’s division of police, the Columbus<br />

Metropolitan Library, and Columbus City Schools.<br />

White said they are not certain what will come out<br />

of these discussions, but he felt it was time to start a<br />

dialogue with them so their concerns and desires about<br />

the future use of the site can be heard.<br />

“The biggest thing we want is to get everybody to<br />

come to the table and talk about what we could do<br />

there,” he said. “I have spoken to one (city official) and<br />

they think it might be feasible to do something within<br />

the school or create a mini-rec center or something of<br />

that nature where they could still service the community<br />

but in a joint partnership with the schools.”<br />

There is no current time-table for when<br />

the discussions would be held, nor is there<br />

a time-table for when a formal idea on the<br />

future use of the site could be presented to<br />

the community. The commission did state,<br />

however, that they would like to start the<br />

process sooner rather than later.<br />

“We have to get a dialogue started<br />

because this is important to all of us to be<br />

heard in the process,” said White. “I am not<br />

certain what the schools’ plans are but I<br />

believe anything other than a vacant lot<br />

would be ideal.<br />

“Like I mentioned before, the whole community<br />

west of Demorest is just lacking in<br />

so many resources and they have to travel<br />

so far just to get to a library or travel even<br />

further away to get to a pool. And for an<br />

area that has as many people living there<br />

as they do, it is just not acceptable to not<br />

have any plans for the site beyond a field.<br />

The people who live west of Demorest<br />

deserve to have the same access to the<br />

same things that we do in the central<br />

Hilltop area.”<br />

The urgency for the committee and the<br />

commission to reach out to these local entities<br />

came about due to the unveiling of the<br />

Columbus City Schools Facilities Master<br />

Plan (FMP).<br />

In one of the first phases of its plan to<br />

build new elementary, middle, and high<br />

schools, it calls for the construction of a new<br />

600-student capacity Eakin Elementary<br />

School. The initial recommendation is for<br />

the school to be relocated to the site of the<br />

former Wedgewood Middle School.<br />

The plans to construct a new Eakin<br />

Elementary and additional schools<br />

throughout the district’s geographic boundary<br />

were put on hold by the board of education<br />

when they recently voted to remove a<br />

$680-million maximum 35-year bond issue<br />

and a 4.7-mil permanent improvement levy<br />

on the Nov. 8 general election ballot.<br />

Jacqueline Bryant, the district’s director<br />

of communications, acknowledged that<br />

while there are no current plans for the current<br />

elementary site once construction and<br />

operating funding is secure, it is possible it<br />

would be used in the short to medium term<br />

as swing space to “allow other aspects of the<br />

FMP to move forward.”<br />

She added that the long term disposition<br />

of the site will require more discussion with<br />

the community and potential partners.

Anastasia Toth is the first full-time female firefighter in Prairie Township. She is pictured<br />

here with Prairie Township Fire Chief Allen Scott.<br />

Prairie Township hires first<br />

full-time female firefighter<br />

By Christine Bryant<br />

Staff Writer<br />

The Prairie Township Fire Department<br />

has hired its first full-time female firefighter/paramedic.<br />

And Anastasia Toth is certain of one<br />

thing - she won’t be the last.<br />

“I am honored and excited to be a part of<br />

this department,” she said. “I have amazing<br />

mentors and a great crew to learn from.<br />

I may be the first female here, but I certainly<br />

won’t be the last.”<br />

The 23-year-old Hilliard resident joined<br />

the department part-time in December<br />

2021 and has been a part-time firefighter<br />

with the Jefferson Township Fire<br />

Department since April 2020. She started<br />

her full-time role with the Prairie<br />

Township Fire Department on Oct. 1,<br />

replacing a member who left to take a position<br />

with the Columbus Division of Fire.<br />

“Anastasia is a fantastic fit for our<br />

organization,” Prairie Township Fire Chief<br />

Allen Scott said. “Her strong work ethic<br />

and passion for the fire service is exactly<br />

what every fire department is looking for.”<br />

He said the Prairie Township community<br />

is lucky to have her on staff as a fulltime<br />

member.<br />

“Being the first female, full-time firefighter<br />

in Prairie Township is a milestone<br />

for her and sets a positive example for any<br />

female who desires to become a firefighter,”<br />

Scott said. “The fire service was a maledominated<br />

profession for many years. That<br />

ceiling was broken a long time ago in many<br />

departments around the country and we’re<br />

so proud to be able to say it’s happened<br />

here, too.”<br />

Although Toth says she was initially<br />

interested in becoming an engineer, one of<br />

her high school teachers left a lasting<br />

impression on her.<br />

“My history teacher sophomore year,<br />

Tim Cave, was a retired firefighter and had<br />

a lot of fun stories about the firehouse,”<br />

Toth said. “Initially what attracted me to<br />

this career was the brotherhood and the<br />

ability to give back to the community.”<br />

She enrolled in the Delaware Area<br />

Career Center’s high school program and<br />

graduated in 2017.<br />

“At DACC, Captain Jay Louks further<br />

inspired me to become the best firefighter I<br />

could be,” Toth said. “Now I can’t imagine<br />

doing anything else. I love waking up in<br />

the mornings and going to work.”<br />

Toth has two associate degrees in EMS<br />

and Fire Science and began medic school in<br />

2020.<br />

In Toth’s spare time, she says she likes<br />

to enter competitions that test her skills<br />

and endurance.<br />

“This past year I’ve competed in a half-<br />

Ironman, half-marathon and two Olympic<br />

triathlons,” she said. “Now that I’m out of<br />

medic school, I am attempting to learn the<br />

banjo as well.”<br />

She also enjoys traveling and camping.<br />

While Toth says she is focused on<br />

becoming a great paramedic and firefighter,<br />

her goals are to help other firefighters<br />

as they join the department. In fact, the<br />

department is projected to grow by nine<br />

positions at the beginning of 2023 thanks<br />

to a $3 million Staffing For Adequate Fire<br />

and Emergency Response (SAFER) grant<br />

from the The Federal Emergency<br />

Management Agency (FEMA).<br />

“I’d like to help others accomplish their<br />

goals and be someone that new recruits can<br />

come to ask questions and learn from,”<br />

Toth said. “This is a great department to be<br />

a part of and I’m excited to see where my<br />

career takes me.”

As part of a national lead poisoning prevention<br />

effort, Mayor Andrew Ginther,<br />

columbus city councilmember Shayla<br />

Favor and other city and community leaders<br />

gathered recently to promote several<br />

home repair and lead remediation<br />

resources available to Columbus residents.<br />

All of the programs are designed to protect<br />

vulnerable residents from housing-related<br />

hazards while preserving housing affordability<br />

in Columbus.<br />

“The benefits of a safe and healthy home<br />

cannot be overstated,” said Ginther. “Our<br />

Housing Strategy makes clear our commitment<br />

to protecting our most vulnerable<br />

neighbors by offering a range of resources<br />

to keep them in their homes as our regional<br />

population grows and the housing market<br />

tightens. That is why these programs are<br />

so important and why we are doing all we<br />

can to empower more of our residents to<br />

remain stably housed while reducing the<br />

cost of homeownership.”<br />

Specifically, the Lead Safe Columbus<br />

Program provides funding to property owners<br />

for lead-based paint hazard control in<br />

owner- or tenant-occupied units. To date,<br />

this program has addressed health hazards<br />

in more than 200 Columbus homes and<br />

completed more than $460,000 in repairs.<br />

The Healthy Homes Program, meanwhile,<br />

offers families up to $7,500 to fix<br />

health and safety concerns in households<br />

in which children under the age of 6, seniors<br />

and/or people with disabilities reside.<br />

Estimates project this program will serve<br />

more than 250 properties over the next<br />

three years and educate 8,000 residents on<br />

ways to keep their homes safe.<br />

Additionally, the Columbus Emergency<br />

Repair Program offers homeowners up to<br />

$7,500 for essential repairs to abate certain<br />

emergency conditions. Eligible repairs<br />

include leaking, obstructed or clogged toilets,<br />

sinks, tubs and sewer lines; loss of<br />

heat; leaking or inoperable hot water<br />

tanks; loss of electricity; and more.<br />

Contractors who meet local, state and federal<br />

requirements are assigned to perform<br />

the work. To qualify, homeowners must<br />

have owned and occupied the residence for<br />

at least one year, and household earnings<br />

must be 50 percent or less of the Area<br />

Median Income.<br />

“Housing-related environmental problems<br />

are a significant cause of adult and<br />

pediatric health conditions, from asthma to<br />

lead poisoning. But it goes beyond just<br />

health outcomes. Homeownership is the<br />

greatest key to wealth building in the<br />

United States. If we can support residents<br />

to secure safe and healthy homes, we can<br />

positively impact families for generations<br />

to come,” said Favor.<br />

Applications are currently being accepted<br />

for all three programs. For more information,<br />

Senior safety and the holidays<br />

My grandparents are coming over for<br />

Thanksgiving. Should we do anything different?<br />

The simple answer is YES! Here are some tips for<br />

hosting a senior over the Holidays:<br />

• Enjoying the feast - Our taste buds and diets<br />

change as we age so it’s a good idea to take that<br />

into consideration when planning your menu. Did<br />

you know that we lose taste buds as we age, but<br />

chewing can be more difficult? Try to find a dish<br />

that has a little more flavoring but is easy to chew.<br />

Sweet potatoes are a great choice. But remember,<br />

be careful with the salt.<br />

• Household safety - When you’re having seniors<br />

over, make sure your throw rugs are secure or<br />

Reduce food waste this Thanksgiving<br />

As Thanksgiving approaches, the Solid<br />

Waste Authority of Central Ohio (SWACO)<br />

is encouraging families to reduce food<br />

waste by offering tools for planning ahead<br />

and repurposing leftovers.<br />

“An inordinate amount of food is wasted<br />

around the Thanksgiving holiday -- some<br />

200 million pounds of turkey, 40 million<br />

pounds of mashed potatoes and 30 million<br />

pounds of stuffing will end up in trash cans<br />

across the nation,” said Joe Lombardi,<br />

SWACO’s executive director. “With a little<br />

preparation and planning, this waste can<br />

be drastically reduced.”<br />

In central Ohio, food waste accounts for<br />

the single largest source of landfill material<br />

(by weight) and is equivalent to residents<br />

and businesses throwing away nearly<br />

one million pounds of food daily.<br />

“When the food from our dinner plates is<br />

wasted, so are all of the resources that<br />

went into producing it and the thousands<br />

of dollars that families spend to purchase<br />

food that is thrown away,” said Lombardi.<br />

SWACO’s More Than Food website<br />

(savemorethanfood.org) offered tips for citizens<br />

this holiday season to help prevent<br />

food waste, saving money and protecting<br />

the environment:<br />

•Plan your meal with the Guestimator,<br />

a dinner party calculator that estimates<br />

how much food you need to keep your<br />

guests full and happy.<br />

•Store food properly with the Storage<br />

Guide. Learn how to properly store food so<br />

it remains fresh for as long as possible.<br />

•Reimagine holiday leftovers with<br />

Organic Valley Recipes featuring tips and<br />

creative recipes for making holiday leftovers<br />

into new dishes.<br />

•Donate leftovers to food rescue organizations,<br />

restaurants, and other food donors<br />

with soup kitchens and shelters to create<br />

access to healthy, edible food for food insecure<br />

residents.<br />

“Our Save More Than Food website<br />

offers a ‘Holiday Hub’ which provides our<br />

residents with simple ideas to reduce food<br />

waste throughout the holidays,” said<br />

Lombardi. “Our research shows that central<br />

Ohioans are very concerned about food<br />

waste. By simply tweaking a few things in<br />

our routines, we can all work together to<br />

make powerful progress in lessening food<br />

waste in our homes this holiday season as<br />

well as all year long.”<br />

Overall, the Save More Than Food campaign<br />

is working toward a goal to reduce<br />

food waste by 50 percent by 2030. In one of<br />

its pilot program communities where food<br />

waste drop-off sites and educational outreach<br />

has been shared and waste generation<br />

monitored, there has been a 20 percent<br />

reduction in household food waste.<br />

Residents and businesses can visit savemorethanfood.org<br />

for information to help<br />

reduce food waste on Thanksgiving and<br />

throughout the holiday season.<br />

How to memorialize<br />

a lost loved one<br />

A memorial tells the story of your loved ones<br />

to future generations. The experts at Hannigan<br />

Memorials, part of the Modlich Monument<br />

Company, have tips on choosing just the right<br />

monument.<br />

Plan ahead<br />

Aim to purchase a memorial before the emotional<br />

time of losing a loved one. Even with cremations,<br />

there are memorial options, such as<br />

burying cremains and erecting a monument; creating<br />

a cut-out in a monument and sealing the cremains<br />

inside; or using a decorative urn inside a<br />

mausoleum.<br />

“A memorial takes time to complete and place<br />

in the cemetery,” said Chad Sothard, branch manager<br />

of Hannigan Memorials. “We deliver and<br />

install every monument we build, making sure<br />

There is no obligation for me to come out and<br />

talk with you, give me a call and we will look at<br />

it together.<br />

Thank you for your time,<br />

everything is just right for our customers.”<br />

Match the memorial to your lot<br />

Some cemeteries restrict the size, shape or<br />

material used for memorials. “We have experience<br />

working with a variety of budgets and different<br />

cemeteries to help ensure your final memorial<br />

choice fits your personal taste, budget and cemetery<br />

regulations,” said Sothard.<br />

Personalize your memorial<br />

“We believe a memorial is as unique as the life<br />

it commemorates,” Sothard said. “Our craftsmen<br />

can create any type of memorial, with stones in<br />

any type, color, shape or size.” Customers can<br />

choose their engraving, from standard sandblasting<br />

to hand diamond-etched portraits. Hannigan<br />

also provides computer-generated scale drawings,<br />

so customers can easily visualize their memorial.

Free Home-Delivered Meals Program<br />

Extended Through End of Year<br />

The Franklin County Office on Aging has extended<br />

its free Home-Delivered Meals program through the<br />

end of the year. Franklin County residents aged 60<br />

and older are eligible to receive free home-delivered<br />

meals without income verification now through<br />

Dec. 31, <strong>2022</strong>.<br />

A service offered through the Franklin County<br />

Office on Aging Senior Options program, the<br />

Home-Delivered Meals program paused any<br />

income verification requirements in April 2020 due<br />

to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. In Franklin<br />

County, residents receiving home-delivered meals<br />

has increased by nearly 48% since 2019, from 3,883<br />

to 5,749.<br />

“Early in the pandemic, especially during the<br />

stay-at-home orders, seniors were significantly impacted,<br />

some being fearful of leaving their homes<br />

for any reason,” said Interim Director Chanda<br />

Wingo. “We understood how critically important it<br />

was to remove barriers and expand access to<br />

adequate nutrition needed to stay healthy.”<br />

The Franklin County Office on Aging Senior<br />

Options program has been providing community-based<br />

services to residents since 1993. Senior<br />

Options empowers Franklin County residents aged<br />

60 and older with the necessary tools needed to<br />

maintain their independence. The program also<br />

helps ease the minds of family members by connecting<br />

them to support services so they can provide the<br />

best care for their older parent, family member or<br />

friend with limited abilities.<br />

Family fun day at Early Learning Center<br />

Although the Hilltop Early Learning Center may be months away from officially<br />

opening its doors, prospective students and their parents and guardians were<br />

able to get a sneak-peek of the facility and its amenities through a community outreach<br />

program that aimed to bring “fun for all.” On Oct. 29, dozens of families<br />

across the region visited the future pre-kindergarten learning center at 45<br />

Clarendon Ave. to participate in the first annual Family Fun Day. Sponsored by the<br />

city of Columbus and its local early learning centers, attendees were able to walk<br />

through the educational rooms and put their creative skills to use through a variety<br />

of arts and crafts and activities. Shown here learning how to play the bucket<br />

drums in one of the building’s most unique spaces are siblings (from left) Future<br />

and Isaac Price. Teaching the class of early music learners was Scott Wedell, an<br />

instrumental music teacher at West High School. He said bucket drums are a great<br />

way to introduce children to music because of their simplistic nature. “You communicate<br />

with them on how to use the sticks on the buckets and then they just go<br />

for it,” he said. For more photos, visit columbusmessenger.com.<br />

City to file lawsuit against auto companies<br />

Columbus City Attorney Zach Klein announced his<br />

plans to file a lawsuit against automakers Kia and<br />

Hyundai for their failure to include industry standard<br />

anti-theft technology in vehicles that has led to soaring<br />

levels of theft in Columbus. The city has seen a more<br />

than 450 percent increase in the number of Kia and<br />

Hyundai thefts over the past year, an average of 17<br />

thefts each day this year. Kia and Hyundai models<br />

account for nearly two-thirds of all vehicle theft<br />

attempts in Columbus so far this year.<br />

For years, Kia and Hyundai manufactured vehicles<br />

without engine immobilizers or other alternative security<br />

features, such as reinforced steering columns and<br />

sensors designed to detect window glass breakage.<br />

Many of these features come standard on nearly every<br />

other consumer vehicle manufactured during the same<br />

timeframe.<br />

“For years, Kia and Hyundai cut corners and sold<br />

vehicles they knew were so unsafe they could be stolen<br />

with ease by a teenager with access to simple tools and<br />

a TikTok account,” said Columbus City Attorney Zach<br />

Klein. “Kia and Hyundai’s negligence in pursuit of corporate<br />

profit is unconscionable. It’s time we held these<br />

automakers accountable for cheating consumers and<br />

passing the buck and responsibility to clean up the<br />

mess they made onto the rest of us.”<br />

These deficiencies have been highlighted on social<br />

media platforms, where content creators describe how<br />

to steal a vehicle in a matter of minutes by anyone<br />

with a screwdriver and USB charger. The city alleges<br />

that the bulk of thefts are being perpetrated by juveniles,<br />

including a group known as the “Kia Boyz” who<br />

steal Kia and Hyundai vehicles, post their exploits to<br />

social media, and challenge others to do the same.<br />

“In my 16 months as the chief of police, I have often<br />

asked what more can we do as an agency to save our<br />

children from themselves. We enforce the laws, are<br />

engaged with parents, collaborate with our judicial<br />

system, and are exploring programming in our<br />

schools,” said Columbus Chief of Police<br />

Elaine Bryant. “And on this issue, we’ve<br />

asked Kia and Hyundai for their assistance.<br />

To date, we have received no meaningful<br />

cooperation. These automakers<br />

should be just as concerned as we are that<br />

their products are so easily accessible and<br />

are being used to commit felonious acts. As<br />

a result, our children are putting not only<br />

the community in harm’s way, but themselves<br />

as well. We owe it to our children<br />

and our community to do all we can to prevent<br />

these often tragic events from occurring.”<br />

The city of Columbus contends that the<br />

rash of Kia and Hyundai thefts due to substandard<br />

security features in their vehicles<br />

have cost consumers, insurance companies,<br />

local governments and law enforcement<br />

millions of dollars over the past year alone.<br />

Further, the deficiencies in these vehicles<br />

have caused additional harms including a<br />

number of juveniles being seriously injured<br />

or killed during joyrides after easily stealing<br />

the vehicles.<br />

Despite knowing of the security deficiencies<br />

of their vehicles, Kia and Hyundai<br />

have refused to recall or repair vehicles to<br />

better secure them from theft, instead<br />

largely ignoring calls for action and placing<br />

the burden to respond to the issue on consumers<br />

whose cars were stolen as well as<br />

local governments and law enforcement<br />

departments.<br />

“The victims of these thefts aren’t CEOs and executives,<br />

they’re teachers and servers, retail workers and<br />

nurses - people whose lives have been upended and<br />

who’ve likely spent nights lying awake thinking about<br />

how they’re going to afford to buy a new car while putting<br />

food on the table and making rent,” said Klein.<br />

“These victims had their cars stolen through no fault of<br />

their own. They shouldn’t have to bear the responsibility<br />

to make this right. The corporations who put profit<br />

above all else should be held accountable.”<br />

The auto companies have sold vehicles that lacked<br />

sufficient, industry-standard security features, including<br />

engine immobilizers and certain other safety and<br />

anti-theft systems. The city has spent significant<br />

resources investigating and responding to these thefts,<br />

and the city’s residents have to deal with the problems<br />

of juveniles and others illegally joy riding on Columbus<br />

streets and highways.<br />

The city plans to ask the court to compel Kia and<br />

Hyundai to abate the public nuisance caused by their<br />

inaction that has led to the rise in thefts, and with it,<br />

the substantial cost incurred by the city as it continues<br />

to respond to the automakers’ negligence. Additionally,<br />

the city plans to seek injunctive relief to prohibit the<br />

further sale of unsafe vehicles and require Kia and<br />

Hyundai to recall, repair or replace the unsafe vehicles<br />

currently on the road, as well as damages in excess of<br />

$25,000, punitive damages, legal expenses, and preand<br />

post-judgment interest in the case.<br />

“Kia and Hyundai marketed and sold cars they<br />

knew were unsafe and now refuse to take any responsibility<br />

as others have to bear the consequences of their<br />

decisions. That’s not right,” said Columbus Solicitor<br />

General Rich Coglianese.<br />

Klein said the he intends to file the lawsuit on<br />

behalf of the city of Columbus in the Franklin County<br />

Court of Common Pleas in the coming weeks.<br />

PAGE 16 - GROVE CITY MESSENGER - <strong>November</strong> 13, <strong>2022</strong><br />

The parodist songwriter Al Yankovic is<br />

the subject of a new biopic. And yes, it is as<br />

weird as you might imagine it to be.<br />

Co-written by the loveable goof who rose<br />

to fame in the late 1970s by turning pop<br />

classics such as The Knacks’ “My Sharona”<br />

and Queen’s “Another One Bites the Dust”<br />

into comedic gold with an ode to questionable<br />

lunch meat in “My Bologna” and a<br />

lament on public transportation in<br />

“Another One Rides the Bus,” “Weird: The<br />

Al Yankovic Story” is anything but a traditional<br />

account of the life of the man who<br />

only ever wanted to make up new words to<br />

songs that already existed.<br />

Taken at face value, Al Yankovic makes<br />

a terrible subject for a biopic. By his own<br />

admission, his parents were fully supportive<br />

of his wild dreams, he abstained from<br />

alcohol and drugs throughout his entire<br />

career, and he did not engage in public<br />

fisticuffs with artists who may have initially<br />

been a little sore that he lovingly lampooned<br />

their creations. But in this film<br />

however, Al Yankovic does what Al<br />

Yankovic does best: he turns his completely<br />

normal and sweet and square life into<br />

something entirely different, something<br />

dark and gritty and, frankly, more befitting<br />

of a traditional biopic of a creative genius.<br />

The end result may be a little out there<br />

for some, but “Weird: The Al Yankovic<br />

Story” is a wonderful — and wonderfully<br />

funny — homage to the man who has<br />

brought so much joy to the world through<br />

his creative stupidity.<br />

Daniel Radcliffe stars as the man of the<br />

decades, an aspiring parody songwriter<br />

whose parents do not believe in him. His<br />

mother (Julianne Nicholson) worries about<br />

where he will go in life when she finds<br />

Hawaiian shirts tucked away in his bed<br />

like a naughty magazine, and his father<br />

(Toby Huss) is too busy at his factory job to<br />

pay attention to his son and his outlandish<br />

dreams where he becomes not technically<br />

the best but arguably the most famous<br />

accordion player in an extremely specific<br />

genre of music.<br />

After years of hiding all of his musical<br />

talents — both at the accordion and with<br />

making up new lyrics to songs that already<br />

exist — “Alfie” finally has enough of their<br />

dream dampening behavior and sets off<br />

with his glorious hair and his gloriously<br />

colorful Hawaiian shirts to make a name<br />

for himself in the music industry.<br />

At first, the industry wants nothing to<br />

do with him and his ability to create new<br />

lyrics from songs that already exist. They<br />

feel it is too unoriginal, too boring, too<br />

niche, too reliant on the accordion. But<br />

when the famed Dr. Demento (Rainn<br />

Wilson) takes him under his wing, Al<br />

Yankovic finally starts to fly high. And<br />

then he starts to get high too, eventually<br />

In Entertainment<br />

www.columbusmessenger.com<br />

“Weird: e Al Yankovic Story” is endlessly enjoyable<br />

becoming addicted to drugs and alcohol at<br />

the influence of pop sensation Madonna<br />

(Evan Rachel Wood) who has her own ideas<br />

for how his story should go. Shortly after<br />

(very shortly after), he has a falling out<br />

with his band — “you’re all a bunch of normals,”<br />

he shouts at them — gets into a public<br />

spat with Michael Jackson who parodied<br />

his hit single “Eat It,” and runs afoul of the<br />

leader of a notorious cartel.<br />

Needless to say that there is a lot going<br />

on in “Weird,” but it completely works if<br />

you allow yourself to succumb to the wackiness<br />

within this “100 percent true, not at<br />

all made-up movie” about Al Yankovic’s<br />

rapid rise to fame and equally fast downfall<br />

and nearly instantaneous recovery and<br />

immediate tragic ending.<br />

Admittedly, it might be hard for some to<br />

succumb to the wackiness that abounds<br />

within this film, but what may help sell the<br />

material is the fact that the cast takes it<br />

seriously. Chances are if you liked “This is<br />

Spinal Tap,” “Zoolander,” or “Wet Hot<br />

American Summer,” you will enjoy this<br />

because it was filmed and acted in the<br />

same vein as those comedy classics. It has<br />

that same spirit and is delivered with the<br />

same amount of love for these characters<br />

by the actors, especially Radcliffe. He is<br />

just a joy to behold in this film where he<br />

alternates seamlessly between earnest<br />

dreamer at the start of his career and<br />

The Reel Deal<br />

Dedra Cordle<br />

vicious frontman a la Jim Morrison during<br />

one of his most famed concert performances.<br />

From start to finish, “Weird: The Al<br />

Yankovic Story” is highly engaging and<br />

entertaining. Jokes come hard and fast and<br />

they range from silly slapstick gags to<br />

pointed references with punchlines that<br />

pay off down the line. It’s the kind of film<br />

that begs rewatching to catch all of the references<br />

and sight gags, and to fully appreciate<br />

the jokes that age with time.<br />

Unfortunately, this film is currently<br />

being streamed only on the Roku Channel<br />

(it is also available on their website) and<br />

unfortunately it will likely stay only on the<br />

Roku Channel. But if you can find a way to<br />

view this movie through that free ad-based<br />

streaming service, I highly encourage you<br />

to do so. Like the man and his work, it will<br />

bring a smile to your face, warmth to your<br />

soul, and a genuine sense of puzzlement for<br />

finding something so absurd so endlessly<br />

enjoyable.<br />
