The Jackson Township Fire Department

recently received a special gift in the

form of an abandoned home on Ventura

Boulevard in Grove City. For weeks, the

firefighters have been putting their own

personal touches on the property by

removing window panes, creating an

extra wing using wood panels, and

bringing in small shipping containers to

really bring out the potential of the

place. But rather than let it sit as, they

got down to business and started live

fire rescue and training for the benefit of

their personnel and the entire community.

Captain Luke Smith said these vacant

or abandoned home donations are

immensely beneficial for the firefighters

because it helps them learn and become

accustomed to new rescue maneuvers

and firefighting techniques in a more

controlled setting. The department will

be at the home on Ventura Boulevard for

the next several weeks – Smith declined

to say which training techniques they

would be working on because they

wanted to surprise the firefighters – and

will burn down the structure on Dec. 14.

New committee to

Nikky Ziglar-Zimmerman says some of

her fondest childhood memories were

made during the block parties that were

thrown within the village of Urbancrest.

Although she admits that many of the

people in attendance had some kind of

familial connection, she explained that it

was not their blood relation that made the

event so special for those involved.

“It was because of the sense of community,”

she said. “As a community, we did a

lot of things together back then but we

haven’t done that in God knows how many

years.”

She said she would love to see the village host community

events and gatherings in the near future. Her

fellow members on the village council shared the same

desire when discussing a related topic at its regular

meeting on Oct. 11.

As a result, the local governing body has announced

designs to form a committee to study the feasibility of

hosting events and gatherings for the community. The

idea was initially sparked by a property owner who

says his request to rent a village amenity was denied.

According to Eric Evans, a former resident of the

village, he wanted to host a celebration at the pavilion

for family and friends and whoever else wanted to join

the festivities.

“I grew up in this community; I love this community,”

he said. “And I just wanted to give back in some

way.”

He said he envisioned small carnival rides for children

and bringing in craft vendors for the adults. Food

trucks were also a possibility.

But he says his reservation request was not

approved because he does not currently reside in the

village. He said he is hoping the village council can

come together with the community to allow usage of

the facility to non-residents.

Councilwoman Deborah Larkins-Jackson said she

was surprised by the denial.

“I was under the impression the pavilion could be

rented out at a cost to anybody,” she said.

Mayor Joseph Barnes Sr. said that is not the case

per the usage agreements that were signed into legislation

by the council years prior.

He said that the council could change the agreement

to allow non-residents to have the ability to rent

the facilities at a non-resident price like other municipalities

do, but he added there are still rules in place

regarding what events can be hosted within the village

facilities.

“There’s nothing that says that the people in

Urbancrest can’t gather at the park and celebrate each

other,” said Barnes. “And I have spoken to (Mr. Evans)

about that over and over again. But we have rules on

the books that says you cannot bring vendors in. You

can’t come in and use the park, call it a celebration and

sell food.”

He said those same rules are in place to rent the

indoor pavilion as well.

“If his aunt (who lives the village) were to come and

rent the pavilion so they could have access to it, that

would be good,” he said. “But it also states in the rules

that you cannot sell any product out of that pavilion.”

Barnes also explained that having individuals or

outside groups try to set up carnival rides could put

the village in an uncomfortable spot regarding liability.

“It’s an insurance issue and a safety issue,” he said.

Ziglar-Zimmerman asked whether they could issue

permits like other cities or municipalities do when an

organization wants to host community events. Barnes

said they could but added that it was an issue that

needed more research by the council.

Larkins-Jackson suggested they reach out to the

Grove City Area Chamber of Commerce for guidance.

She said she sees no reason why the village could not

allow — or even set up their own — arts and music

events or other gatherings of that nature.

Law director Rodd Lawrence suggested the council

form a committee to brainstorm potential event

options and allowances.

“It would allow you to start to look at the different

options and decide what it is you want to allow, what

it is you want to do, and then we’ll work to get it done,”

he said. “But you have to start out with a

vision of what your goals and objectives are

and then we can work backwards from

there and devise a plan to accomplish it.”

Lawrence said he believes the village

having the ability to host community

events would be “a good thing” for all

involved.

“I think the reason all these communities

are doing events is two-fold,” he said.

“Number one is they generate a lot of community

togetherness and neighborliness

and all of that, but secondly they make

money (for the city or municipality where

they are taking place).

“So whatever your motivation is, you

certainly can do it, and you’ve got the facilities,

and it looks like you’ve got interest so

I think it would be a great idea to explore

further.”

Government Focus

Township tries to secure funds for road projects

By Dedra Cordle

Staff Writer

The Ohio Public Works Commission will

soon announce which municipalities will

receive full to partial funding to make

infrastructure upgrades through its capital

improvement program and the local transportation

improvement program. Among

the hundreds of government entities who

are hoping to hear good news regarding

their road repair request is Jackson

Township.

At its meeting in late October, Township

Administrator Shane Farnsworth told the

board of trustees that the application to

repair two of its most well-traveled, and

well-worn, roads had officially been submitted

for review.

He said he feels confident that the township

will receive partial funding — if not full

Property Tax Assistance Program

The Franklin County Auditor’s office is

now accepting applications for the Property

Tax Assistance Program (PTAP) from lowincome

older homeowners who need help

paying their 2022 first-half property taxes,

said Auditor Michael Stinziano.

funding — to make needed repairs to Brown

and Dyer roads.

“I believe that we have a real chance to

get some amount of dollars due to the scope

of the project,” said Farnsworth. “It is a relatively

small project, about $350,000 in the

grand scheme of things, and I do not

believe it would take an excessively long

time to complete.”

He said the township and the county did

a preliminary scoring account of the project

and found it to be “right on the edge” to

meet the parameters of project approval.

“Although I do feel good about it, there

is always that chance that other projects

will score and fare just a bit better,” he

said. “But again, I believe we have a good

project here so we’ll just keep our fingers

crossed and hope to hear good news (from

the state) within the next two months.”

According to the application request, the

news and notes

township is seeking a full resurfacing of

Brown Road and Dyer Road, along with

improvements at the intersection.

Farnsworth said stormwater repairs were

also requested within the application

because the area tends to flood during

heavy rain events.

“Much of the stormwater infrastructure

on Brown and Dyer has been crushed from

all the dump trucks and other heavy-load

vehicles that travel through,” he said. “So

what we have now are areas where the

water just lays there without draining and

it really affects the neighborhood homes.”

He said infrastructure improvements

would allow that run-off to drain in a more

timely manner.

“The repairs would allow it to function

as it should,” he said.

Improvements to Brown and Dyer Road

have been on the township’s need-to-repair

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.”

list for many years, said Farnsworth, but

he added the condition of the roads have

been further damaged due to the surrounding

roadway repairs.

“We all wanted repairs to be done to

Frank Road and State Route 104, but a lot

of those detours caused a lot of traffic to be

diverted to these roads because they were a

convenient cut-through,” said Farnsworth.

“These roads, which are very narrow and

occasionally curvy, were not built for that

amount of traffic.”

He said he hopes with the major thoroughfares

now being open, traffic will start

to recede from Brown and Dyer so the condition

of the roadway does not deteriorate

further.

“That is the ultimate goal of this project

— to repair and stabilize this area,” he stated.

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.

When “It’s free” becomes costly

Achieving quality sleep becomes harder

for me with every passing year, especially

in the fall months when the sport’s world is

abuzz and my mind spins all night, most

every night, trying to decide what players

to insert for my fantasy teams. It always

amounts to a fruitless effort, just a wasted

sleep opportunity, since no matter what

player choices I make, they always turn out

to be the wrong ones.

On top of that, we must also endure

those painful tacky political attack ads that

run well into the fall season and then start

anew for the next election the day following

Election Day. But worst of all, fall also

means it’s that annoying annual Medicare

enrollment update period that will once

again test our already fragile and dwindling

sanity left from the prior year’s

onslaught of brainwashing commercials.

One night I woke myself up shouting

out, “Dy-no-mite!” A few nights earlier it

was, “It’s free!” Both times the dog went

scurrying down the stairs with his tail

between his legs to hide behind the chair.

The week before I had a nightmare and

awoke in a cold sweat with Joe Namath,

Jimmie ‘JJ’ Walker, William Shatner, Joe

Montana, and George Foreman chasing me

through a forest waving health insurance

forms for me to sign in one hand and a pen

in their other yelling, “get what you

deserve, get what you’re entitled to, no premiums,

no copay, no deductibles, dental,

vision, prescriptions, meals, transportation,

home care and up to $1,700 added

back to your annual Social Security payments.”

I always find myself wondering

what possesses those celebrities to lower

their standards so much to do those ads.

It’s hard to believe they’re that desperate to

make their personal financial ends meet.

The FTC should protect us and make

them put warning disclaimers at the beginning

of those totally abhorrent, almost nonstop,

Medicare commercial barrages we’re

subjected to that are obviously designed to

lower our resistance and persuade us into

submission.

As much as I’ve tried to ignore those

obnoxious commercials, I haven’t succeeded.

I’ve even tried hitting other stations on

the remote clicker to escape the mental

attacks and safeguard my waning sanity.

But their battle plan has anticipated that

evasive maneuver and no matter what

channel I end up on, they’ve taken control

of that station too and within seconds

there’s someone yelling, “it’s free.” I’ve

yelled back more than once, “nothing is

free!”

It’s always amusing when they say, “go

online and use our easy comparison tool to

pick out the plan that’s right for you (it’s

free).” I’d rather sit, read and try to comprehend

an integral calculus textbook than

try to get any worthwhile conclusions out of

most of those overly complicated tools.

Oh, I’m sure there are a few who might

qualify for the pie in the sky promises they

make on those commercials and that must

be what allows them to bypass any FTC

controls and continue to run the misleading

ads. But my life has taught me if I fell for

their ruse and pursued, I’d get the standard,

“Oh, I’m sorry sir, you do not qualify

for that plan. But we have some very

you up with. I’ll connect you with one of our

friendly trained (to hook you) representatives.”

For me, it’s always been that old bait

and switch tactic. Yes, it may be free for a

few, but that’s because I’m paying for them

with my high costs. You’re welcome.

That “it’s free” is a proven ploy to hook

us and reflects a mentality that now runs

rampant at every level these days. It’s emanating

from the very top of our society and

permeating down to the local levels with a

steadily escalating trend. Our hard earned

taxes are helping to fund those goodies.

They’ve become an expensive way of luring

and convincing expectations, loyalties, getting

program buy-ins and votes, when they

might otherwise just fall upon deaf ears

and get disappointing responses.

Many of the goodies start out with

admirable intentions for a legitimate need

but go awry. I equate them to our going to

the grocery store. We need some milk. We

head off with intentions of picking up a gallon

and just a few other healthy items so

we can check out in the five or less item,

fast checkout aisle. But we lose control. By

the time we reach checkout, we’re pushing

one over-flowing cart with pork products

and pulling another brimming with every

form of junk food imaginable, and it takes

forever to unload to ring up and then reload

our items in the other, slow moving aisle.

It’s like that in Congress. A bill is structured

to put our taxes to a justified need.

Politics ensues and by the time the bill is

passed, it’s overloaded with totally unrelated

goody pork and junk food items the enduser

sees as free goodies. They might even

claim the huge bill will cost the taxpayer

nothing. Then it

massive, “it’s free”

goody package.

As the ‘It’s free’

mentality escalates,

so too have the

expectations for

more. The costly

message is being

heard and perpetuated

at the expense

of the taxpayer. A local news article reflects

how far reaching it is.

The gist of the article was too many city

workers had not gotten the COVID-19 vaccine

and the resulting absentee rate was

causing havoc in our city workforce with a

high overtime rate and potential safety

issues resulting from not being able to service

city needs. It was determined to entice

each employee to get the vaccine by giving

them a goody incentive of $1,000 and anyone

who permanently lives with each

employee $100. $300,000 of federal pandemic

relief (taxpayer) funds would be utilized

to encourage employees to get already

free (taxpayer) funded vaccines.

As a career cost analyst at a large manufacturing

facility, where keeping production

lines up and running is of paramount

importance, I understand the many direct

and indirect costs and issues with a high

absentee rate. I appreciate the concerns

that went into the bonus payout decision.

But I fear it sent the wrong message and

set a potential costly precedent for the

future. Will more city employees opt for the

next inevitable booster or pandemic strain

vaccine, or now just stubbornly wait to be

enticed again? I must question why they

didn’t get one in the first place if so easily

swayed by a reward.

More concerning was a statement by one

official: “If the city does not utilize the

relief funds the money would have to be

returned to the federal government.” My

thoughts are, is that bad? Sounds like a

novel idea we could use more of in this

country. You basically have an official

implying, use it or lose it, “It’s free.” I’ll

remember that when I do my taxes this

year. It kindles memories of my military

days that always saw a pre-budget time

surge in spending as each airbase function

made sure they spent their budget just to

insure it wouldn’t get cut in the following

year’s budget.

Reduce food waste this holiday

As Thanksgiving approaches, the Solid

Waste Authority of Central Ohio (SWACO)

is encouraging families to reduce food

waste by offering tools for planning ahead

and repurposing leftovers.

“An inordinate amount of food is wasted

around the Thanksgiving holiday -- some

200 million pounds of turkey, 40 million

pounds of mashed potatoes and 30 million

pounds of stuffing will end up in trash cans

across the nation,” said Joe Lombardi,

SWACO’s executive director. “With a little

preparation and planning, this waste can

be drastically reduced.”

In central Ohio, food waste accounts for

the single largest source of landfill material

(by weight) and is equivalent to residents

and businesses throwing away nearly

one million pounds of food daily.

SWACO’s More Than Food website

(savemorethanfood.org) offered tips for citizens

this holiday season to help prevent

The City Beat

Cram the Cruiser Toy Drive from last year.

Cram the Cruiser

Continuing the tradition of bringing

added joy to children during Christmas,

the city of Grove City and Grove City

Division of Police launch the seventh annual

Cram the Cruiser holiday gift drive, benefitting

County Children Services (FCCS). Drive

through to safely drop off your donated

items from 1 to 4 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 4, at

Grove City United Methodist Church, 2684

“Being involved in our community is an

important part of the Grove City Division

of Police core values,” said Police Chief

Richard Fambro. “We look forward to the

Cram the Cruiser toy drive every year as

an opportunity to share joy with 6,000-plus

children under the care of FCCS while

interacting with Grove City residents.”

FCCS requests donations of gift cards,

new books and toys. Donations are also

welcome directly to the Franklin County

Youth under the care of FCCS often

experience abuse, neglect or other difficult

home situations, and the past two years

have been especially challenging for some.

The annual Cram the Cruiser gift drive

provides a joyful outlet and assurance to

the children that others care.

Utility help available through Neighbor to Neighbor Program

The AEP Ohio Neighbor to Neighbor

Program is now accepting applications for

utility assistance grants for the 2022-23

winter heating season.

Through a partnership between AEP

Ohio and Dollar Energy Fund, the

Neighbor to Neighbor Program supports

families in need with a grant applied

directly to their AEP Ohio account to prevent

disconnection of, or to restore their

electric service. Heating assistance is available

once per program year on a first-come,

first-served basis. Eligible account holders

may apply through April 28, 2023, while

funds are available.

“We’re committed to providing assistance

to those who may be struggling to

make ends meet whether it is due to job

loss or unexpected expenses,” said Brian

Billing, energy efficiency consumer programs

manager for AEP Ohio. “Through

this heating program, we can help to

ensure our customers, especially the elderly

and those with health problems, can

maintain their electric service during the

cold winter months.”

Since AEP Ohio and Dollar Energy

Fund launched the Neighbor to Neighbor

Program in May 2009, more than $16 million

in assistance has been granted to more

than 67,000 Ohio households.

To apply, customers may contact one of

the AEP Ohio Neighbor to Neighbor

Program’s network of more than 120 Ohio

community-based organizations, or apply

online using the link available at Neighbor

to Neighbor (aepohio.com). To qualify, an

applicant’s total gross household income

must be at or below 300 percent of the

Federal Poverty Income Guidelines.

For example, a family of four earning up

to $83,250 per year is income-eligible for

the program. Households must have an

outstanding balance on their bill of at least

$50 and behind on bill payment 30 days or

more. Full eligibility guidelines and application

instructions can be found at

AEPOhio.com/helpaneighbor.

“Dollar Energy Fund is proud to maintain

its support for AEP Ohio and its efforts

to serve families who find themselves in a

temporary financial crisis,” said Chad

Quinn, chief executive officer of Dollar

Energy Fund. “The Neighbor to Neighbor

Program has become a very useful resource

for thousands of households across Ohio,

enabling them to maintain utility service

when blindsided by unexpected circumstances.”

The AEP Ohio Neighbor to Neighbor

Program is funded by public contributions

that are matched dollar-for-dollar by AEP

Ohio. Utility customers may make a contribution

through their monthly AEP Ohio

bill. Donations also can be made online at

www.AEPOhio.com/N2N or by sending a

check directly to The AEP Ohio Neighbor to

Neighbor Program, Box 42329, Pittsburgh,

PA 15203.

Every donation to the Neighbor to

Neighbor Program is used to assist eligible

families residing in Ohio. Every dollar

donated to the Neighbor to Neighbor

Program will be matched by AEP Ohio.

These matching funds and 100 percent of

your donation will assist limited-income

families residing in Ohio to afford utility

service. With AEP Ohio’s match, your taxdeductible

donation will have twice the

impact.

For more information about Dollar

Energy Fund and how to apply for the

Hardship Program or donate to the organization,

visit www.dollarenergy.org.

White Christmas food distribution program to assist families in need

Over 45 years ago, distribution of food

boxes at Christmas to local area residents

in need was begun. The program was called

“White Christmas.”

Each box contains enough food to help

families make their Christmas season a little

brighter. Online registration begins

Nov. 28 and runs through Dec.3 at

www.cognitoforms.com/JacksonTownship2

/WhiteChristmasRegistration2022.

Registrants who do not have access to a

computer can come into the Jackson

Township Fire Station 202, 3650 Hoover

Road, south office, Nov. 28 through Dec. 2,

between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., for in-person

registration.

The White Christmas food program is

open to any resident of 43119, 43123,

43126 and 43146 zip codes with a financial

need. Only one box per address.

Participating families must provide a valid

photo identification, proof of current residency,

phone number, names and ages of

residents, reason for request, and name of

church, if referred.

Distribution of food will be on Dec. 23

behind Our Lady of Perpetual Help School,

How to memorialize a lost loved one

A memorial tells the story of your loved ones

to future generations. The experts at Hannigan

Memorials, part of the Modlich Monument

Company, have tips on choosing just the right

monument.

Plan ahead

Aim to purchase a memorial before the emotional

time of losing a loved one. Even with cremations,

there are memorial options, such as

burying cremains and erecting a monument; creating

a cut-out in a monument and sealing the cremains

inside; or using a decorative urn inside a

mausoleum.

“A memorial takes time to complete and place

in the cemetery,” said Chad Sothard, branch manager

of Hannigan Memorials. “We deliver and

install every monument we build, making sure

everything is just right for our customers.”

Match the memorial to your lot

Some cemeteries restrict the size, shape or

material used for memorials. “We have experience

working with a variety of budgets and different

cemeteries to help ensure your final memorial

choice fits your personal taste, budget and cemetery

regulations,” said Sothard.

Personalize your memorial

“We believe a memorial is as unique as the life

it commemorates,” Sothard said. “Our craftsmen

can create any type of memorial, with stones in

any type, color, shape or size.” Customers can

choose their engraving, from standard sandblasting

to hand diamond-etched portraits. Hannigan

also provides computer-generated scale drawings,

so customers can easily visualize their memorial.

Prescription drug disposal

The National Association of Drug

Diversion Investigators (NADDI) launched

a program to significantly reduce easy

access to outdated or no longer needed prescriptions.

These drugs are the target of theft by

people who have access to the medicine

cabinets of family and friends. America’s

12- to 17-year-olds have made prescription

drugs their number one substance of

abuse, and much of the supply is coming

from the medicine cabinets of their parents,

grandparents and friends.

The following Grove City pharmacies

accept anonymous disposal of medicines.

My grandparents are coming over for

Thanksgiving. Should we do anything different?

The simple answer is YES! Here are some tips for

hosting a senior over the Holidays:

• Enjoying the feast - Our taste buds and diets

change as we age so it’s a good idea to take that

into consideration when planning your menu. Did

you know that we lose taste buds as we age, but

chewing can be more difficult? Try to find a dish

that has a little more flavoring but is easy to chew.

Sweet potatoes are a great choice. But remember,

be careful with the salt.

• Household safety - When you’re having

seniors over, make sure your throw rugs are

Accepted items include prescription, pet

and over-the-counter drugs including capsules,

pills, powders, herbs and vitamins in

the original packaging or a clear, sealed

bag. Unaccepted items include needles,

secure or picked up. They look nice but are a fall

hazard for many seniors. Also, be sure outside

walkways, driveways, and stairways are well lit.

Be sure to watch for cords, tight spaces, and other

things that may be hard for a senior to navigate.

With a crowded house and too many crockpots

with extension cords, there is a tripping hazard for

any age.

Time spent with family is a great way to learn

more about how our senior relatives are getting

along while enjoying quality time with them.

Danbury Senior Living communities offer senior

friendly, delicious cuisine as well as a safe environment.

Franklin County Board of Commissioners: President Erica C. Crawley • Commissioner John O’Grady, and Commissioner Kevin L. Boyce

The Franklin County Board of Commissioners and The Franklin County Office on Aging join with the Messenger Newspaper in providing this update on aging issues in Franklin County.

Franklin County Office on Aging

Free Home-Delivered Meals Program

Extended Through End of Year

The Franklin County Office on Aging has extended

its free Home-Delivered Meals program through the

end of the year. Franklin County residents aged 60

and older are eligible to receive free home-delivered

meals without income verification now through

Dec. 31, 2022.

A service offered through the Franklin County

Office on Aging Senior Options program, the

Home-Delivered Meals program paused any

income verification requirements in April 2020 due

to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. In Franklin

County, residents receiving home-delivered meals

has increased by nearly 48% since 2019, from 3,883

to 5,749.

“Early in the pandemic, especially during the

stay-at-home orders, seniors were significantly impacted,

some being fearful of leaving their homes

for any reason,” said Interim Director Chanda

Wingo. “We understood how critically important it

was to remove barriers and expand access to

adequate nutrition needed to stay healthy.”

The Franklin County Office on Aging Senior

Options program has been providing community-based

services to residents since 1993. Senior

Options empowers Franklin County residents aged

60 and older with the necessary tools needed to

maintain their independence. The program also

helps ease the minds of family members by connecting

them to support services so they can provide the

best care for their older parent, family member or

friend with limited abilities.

To learn more about the Franklin County Office on

Aging and the support services available, visit

Huntington Holiday Train

Columbus Metropolitan Library (CML)

is hosting a free holiday open house on

Wednesday, Nov. 30 at its Main Library,

96 S. Grant Ave. in Columbus. From 6 to 8

p.m., families can enjoy activities, singalong

carols and refreshments, plus a visit

from live reindeer and a very special guest.

But perhaps the biggest draws of the

evening will be the tree-lighting of Topiary

Park and the return of the Huntington

Holiday Train. A ceremonial switch will be

flipped on for the train, which will delight

library customers through Jan. 8, 2023.

Parking for the event in Main Library’s

attached garage will be free.

The 600-square-foot Huntington

Holiday Train includes multiple miniature

trains running on more than 280 feet of

track surrounded by more than 50 pounds

of snowflakes. The miniature buildings —

which are all made from leaves, bark,

seeds, pinecones, fungus and moss — are

modeled after actual structures in

Germany.

This marks the 30th year of the holiday

attraction, which was built in 1992 by

Pumpkin collection at Fryer Park

Applied Imagination founder Paul Busse.

The train was originally displayed in the

lobby of the historic Huntington building

at Broad and High streets. In 2009,

Huntington graciously loaned the train to

CML. This year will be its 12th on display

in Main Library’s atrium.

Highlights include a six-foot-tall cathedral,

an eight-foot-tall castle and a waterfall

that pumps 600 gallons of water an

hour. Each building in the display took

between one and three weeks to create.

The castle and waterfall took more than

three months to complete; it took more

than 10 months to build the cathedral. The

entire display takes two days to set up.

The Huntington Holiday Train will be

on display Sunday, Nov. 20 through

Sunday, Jan. 8, 2023 during regular

library hours — Monday through Thursday

from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday and Saturday

from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 1 to

5 p.m. The first hour of parking in the

library garage is free.

Tots getting in touch with nature

Danielle and Lucian Davis enjoy the weather while building towers of Lego blocks at

the pavilion. Davis said she signed-up to participate in Nature Tots so her son could

meet other children his age. “It’s so great to see these kids outside and interacting with

each other because we didn’t get to experience it all that much due to Covid shutting

down so many programs for children,” she said. “It’s wonderful to be able to get out of

that isolation and enjoy these types of programs with his peers and their parents.”

With Gantz Barn temporarily closed to

repair the damage done by a colony of

bats that had made the site their home,

officials at the Grove City Parks and

Recreation Department had to “think outside

the barn” when it came to providing

educational programming for the area’s

early learners. While the programs that

they have created are not yet as intensive

or extensive as the popular RecSchool

that had been hosted at the location in

Gantz Park, they have recently begun to

offer a limited number of educational programs

for pre-kindergarteners at the

Eagle Pavilion in Fryer Park. According to

recreation supervisor Michele Demmy,

Nature Kids and Nature Tots provide early

learners with opportunities to experience

the “joy of nature and being outdoors”

while also allowing them to engage with

their peers through hands-on activities

and crafts. Shown here working on his

In Entertainment

“Weird: e Al Yankovic Story” is endlessly enjoyable

The parodist songwriter Al Yankovic is

the subject of a new biopic. And yes, it is as

weird as you might imagine it to be.

Co-written by the loveable goof who rose

to fame in the late 1970s by turning pop

classics such as The Knacks’ “My Sharona”

and Queen’s “Another One Bites the Dust”

into comedic gold with an ode to questionable

lunch meat in “My Bologna” and a

lament on public transportation in

“Another One Rides the Bus,” “Weird: The

Al Yankovic Story” is anything but a traditional

account of the life of the man who

only ever wanted to make up new words to

songs that already existed.

Taken at face value, Al Yankovic makes

a terrible subject for a biopic. By his own

admission, his parents were fully supportive

of his wild dreams, he abstained from

alcohol and drugs throughout his entire

career, and he did not engage in public

fisticuffs with artists who may have initially

been a little sore that he lovingly lampooned

their creations. But in this film

however, Al Yankovic does what Al

Yankovic does best: he turns his completely

normal and sweet and square life into

something entirely different, something

dark and gritty and, frankly, more befitting

of a traditional biopic of a creative

genius.

The end result may be a little out there

for some, but “Weird: The Al Yankovic

Story” is a wonderful — and wonderfully

funny — homage to the man who has

brought so much joy to the world through

his creative stupidity.

Daniel Radcliffe stars as the man of the

decades, an aspiring parody songwriter

whose parents do not believe in him. His

mother (Julianne Nicholson) worries about

where he will go in life when she finds

Hawaiian shirts tucked away in his bed

like a naughty magazine, and his father

(Toby Huss) is too busy at his factory job to

pay attention to his son and his outlandish

dreams where he becomes not technically

the best but arguably the most famous

accordion player in an extremely specific

genre of music.

After years of hiding all of his musical

talents — both at the accordion and with

making up new lyrics to songs that already

exist — “Alfie” finally has enough of their

dream dampening behavior and sets off

with his glorious hair and his gloriously

colorful Hawaiian shirts to make a name

for himself in the music industry.

At first, the industry wants nothing to

do with him and his ability to create new

lyrics from songs that already exist. They

feel it is too unoriginal, too boring, too

niche, too reliant on the accordion. But

when the famed Dr. Demento (Rainn

Wilson) takes him under his wing, Al

Yankovic finally starts to fly high. And

then he starts to get high too, eventually

becoming addicted to drugs and alcohol at

the influence of pop sensation Madonna

(Evan Rachel Wood) who has her own ideas

for how his story should go. Shortly after

(very shortly after), he has a falling out

with his band — “you’re all a bunch of normals,”

he shouts at them — gets into a public

spat with Michael Jackson who parodied

his hit single “Eat It,” and runs afoul

of the leader of a notorious cartel.

on in “Weird,” but it completely works if

you allow yourself to succumb to the wackiness

within this “100 percent true, not at

all made-up movie” about Al Yankovic’s

rapid rise to fame and equally fast downfall

and nearly instantaneous recovery and

immediate tragic ending.

Admittedly, it might be hard for some to

succumb to the wackiness that abounds

within this film, but what may help sell the

material is the fact that the cast takes it

seriously. Chances are if you liked “This is

Spinal Tap,” “Zoolander,” or “Wet Hot

American Summer,” you will enjoy this

because it was filmed and acted in the

same vein as those comedy classics. It has

that same spirit and is delivered with the

same amount of love for these characters

by the actors, especially Radcliffe. He is

just a joy to behold in this film where he

alternates seamlessly between earnest

dreamer at the start of his career and

vicious frontman a la Jim Morrison during

one of his most famed concert performances.

From start to finish, “Weird: The Al

Yankovic Story” is highly engaging and

entertaining. Jokes come hard and fast and

they range from silly slapstick gags to

pointed references with punchlines that

pay off down the line. It’s the kind of film

that begs rewatching

to catch all of the

references and sight

gags, and to fully

appreciate the jokes

that age with time.

Unfortunately,

this film is currently

being streamed only on the Roku Channel

(it is also available on their website) and

unfortunately it will likely stay only on the

Roku Channel. But if you can find a way to

view this movie through that free ad-based

streaming service, I highly encourage you

to do so. Like the man and his work, it will

bring a smile to your face, warmth to your

soul, and a genuine sense of puzzlement for

finding something so absurd so endlessly

enjoyable.

Compost 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.

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.

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

Park, 3899 Orders Road

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.

Staff Writer

On Sept. 3, Thomas Howard Smith sat

at his desk in his London home, perched on

the chair, staring intently at a large computer

monitor. A television screen in an

adjoining room could have offered him a

more expansive view, but his satellite signal

was not working well that day—a fact

that he found to be humorous and somewhat

ironic considering the technological

advances that were to occur before his

eyes.

Locked into a live stream via the

National Aeronautics and Space

Administration (NASA) web page, Smith

soaked in the sight of a 322-foot tall rocket

called the Space Launch System (SLS)

that was minutes away from blasting off

into the atmosphere. Ever since childhood,

he has had a passion for airplanes and

spacecraft (real and fictional), but looking

at this marvel of design, engineering, and

operation hit him a little differently.

“It was just parts being assembled

when I started working on the SLS and the

Artemis program with our [NASA] team,

and seeing it completed and ready to

launch was a real treat for me,” he said.

Unlike most people who were watching

the feed through the web stream or live on

a cable news, Sith was familiar with the

verbiage from the mission control booth

and knew something was amiss during the

systems test prior to the scheduled launch.

Sure enough, the initial mission that

would take the uncrewed spacecraft Orion

into a month-long distant retrograde orbit

around the moon was postponed when a

liquid hydrogen leak was detected.

Retired from NASA for the past three

years and living more than a thousand

miles from the Kennedy Space Center in

Cape Canaveral, Fla., Smith said he was

ready to pack a bag, get in his car and

drive down I-71 to help the operations

crew find and fix the problem so they could

get the rocket and spacecraft into the sky

for exploration of the lunar surface.

“Lisa [his wife] told me to sit back

down,” he said with a laugh. “I have the

utmost confidence that they can find and

fix the problem, but I just wanted to go

there and help.”

Smith said he wasn’t too disappointed

that the SLS did not launch initially

because “reality is, nothing new goes on

the first try.” Even so, he could not quell

the buzzing sensations that were coursing

through his body from the experience.

“I am so excited about this program and

the implications it could have on our

Thomas Howard Smith’s budding love for science and space

exploration was cemented when, at age 7, he watched the

Apollo 11 moon landing on the television set in his home in

London. He would later spend more than three decades working

for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)

on the operations team for shuttle missions, the International

Space Station, and the Artemis program. Although the powerful

rocket, the Space Launch System, has yet to have a clear window

to blast off into space, the Artemis program will allow for

further exploration of the lunar surface with uncrewed and

crewed missions. The program’s ultimate goal is to put humans

on Mars.

future, finding life outside of our planet and the possibilities of

new scientific breakthroughs and discovery,” he said. “And to

know that I played a part—a very small part, mind you, but a part

nonetheless—in this new phase of space exploration that could

inspire a new generation of scientific minds and the science-curious

is still hard to wrap my head around.”

Smith recalls liking science and “space stuff” as a young boy.

His dream to work at the space agency started to take root at the

age of 7 when, on July 20, 1969, he watched Apollo 11 Commander

Neil Armstrong and lunar module pilot Buzz Aldrin land and walk

on the moon from the television set in his home in London.

He said prior to that event, he really had no knowledge of

NASA and what it would come to mean to him and so many others.

“Watching the landings on the moon was just very exciting to

me, just from the point of view of people exploring a place no one

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

be called a ‘tech-nerd’ now.”

After the historic event took place, Smith went on something

akin to a personal mission as he attempted to get his hands on any

book or magazine or piece of literature on space and science fiction.

He started to build his own miniature rockets that he and his

friends would try to launch. His father,

George, who would later retire as the

deputy warden of London Correctional

Institution, and his mother, Shirley, who

was a local sixth-grade teacher, encouraged

their son’s interest but they were not

always amused by his antics.

“They were supportive of my interest,

but they didn’t always appreciate the racket

we would make with our rocket launches,”

he quipped.

After graduating from London High

School in 1980, Smith attended Michigan

State University where he joined their Air

Force Reserve Officer Training Corps. Four

years later, equipped with a bachelor of science

in physics and astronomy, the second

lieutenant requested a transfer to the

Vandenberg Air Force Base in Santa

Barbara County, Calif., which was collaborating

with NASA on Space Shuttle missions.

“For the first half of my Air Force

career, I was working on planning and

hardware processing for the first shuttle

mission that was to have been launched

from Vandenberg, and I did some training

at the (Kennedy Space Center) in Florida,”

he said.

When the shuttle launch facilities at

Vandenberg closed shortly after the 1986

Challenger disaster, Smith transferred to a

program at the base in charge of Titan, a

heavy lift rocket that carried large intelligence

and reconnaissance satellites into

orbit. There, he provided engineering and

analysis assistance to get the program

back on its feet after it experienced an

uncrewed accident in a manner similar to

the crewed Challenger mission.

In 1988, a friend told Smith that NASA

was hiring for its operations staff and he

decided to apply. Having given up the

dream of being an astronaut at 10 due to

poor eyesight—“I knew it would disqualify

me for being any kind of military pilot,

which was the primary background for

most astronauts at that point”—he knew he

could process the data and set schedules

and help find a solution to any mechanical

issue that could arise. Still, he didn’t think

he would be selected.

Then he was.

“I think I sat there [after the initial

interview when he was told he was unofficially,

but mostly officially, hired] for about

an hour just absorbing what had happened,”

he stated.

From 1988 to 1997, Smith worked operations

for the Space Shuttle processing, a

job he described as scheduling backwards

from a planned launch date to make sure

the right parts are getting ordered and the

right people are being called to fix problems

that occur to ensure the safety of the

missions, especially the manned crews.

He said one of the most difficult things

he had to do while working at NASA was to

find the mechanical parts of the manned

Columbia Space Shuttle that experienced a

catastrophic failure as it reentered the

atmosphere in 2003.

In 1997, Smith went to work in

International Space Station (ISS) processing,

which he said was interesting, albeit

frustrating, because the largest modular

space station was being constructed in

“chunks.”

“Each chunk that went up—and we’re

talking like 40 chunks—changed the configuration

of the station, and all of the configurations

had to work,” he explained. “So, it

was like if you bought a car and you had

two tires and part of an engine and maybe

a seat, you had to find a way to make it

operate. And then later, you would bring

up maybe a couple more times, a bigger gas

tank and another seat, and you would have

to find a way to reconfigure the parts in

order to make it work because people are

[now] living on this station and they need

power, and electrical power, and their life

support units have to work.”

Smith said those stressors were compounded

when the teams at their partner

agencies in Canada, Europe, Japan, and

Russia would have a different way of finding

solutions to problems.

“I loved working with the Italians, but

they had a very different way of doing

things, you might say,” he laughed. “If you

were working on a [launch] problem in

August and tried to get ahold of one of their

operations team members, you wouldn’t be

able to get ahold of them because August is

their vacation month.

“It was sometimes stressful, but always

interesting working with all of these different

agencies and all of these different personalities.”

During his time in ISS processing,

Smith got involved with planning for Mars

missions and later came to work on operations

planning for the Ares I program

which later became the Artemis program.

Although the initial mission of the Artemis

program is to create a long-term human

presence on the lunar surface for further

exploration of the moon, its ultimate goal is

to send humans to Mars via a series of

experiments to determine how astronauts

could get to the Red Planet and live on it

for a duration of time.

“The moon will essentially be a testing

ground [for Mars expeditions],” Smith

explained. “The equipment wouldn’t necessarily

be the same, but a lot of the concepts

of how the equipment is used—like the

space suits, the science equipment, the

vehicles that the astronauts roll around in

and go to different places—you can test that

stuff out on the moon where they’re close to

Earth. If something goes wrong, you can

bail out and come to Earth within a few

days, but once they get to Mars, they’re not

going to have that option.

“It takes months to get there, and you

can only return to Earth during a specific

window in our rotation.”

Smith reiterated his excitement about

the potential of the Artemis program and

its implications for science, space exploration,

life on Earth, and life within the

universe.

“Carl Sagan, who is one of the people I

think had a pretty big clue about what was

going on, outside of his own personal life,

said, ‘We are a way for the cosmos to know

itself’, and I take that to heart,” Smith said.

“If we are the only intelligent species

around, that means we have a responsibility

to try to keep understanding the universe.

We have a responsibility to try not to

let ourselves get wiped out in some way,

and we have a responsibility to keep trying

to understand the universe.

“And if there are other kinds of life, not

civilizations, but just life like amoebas or

bacteria, we have to try to understand how

it works, how they work, and add that to

our library of what life looks like on another

planet, in another place, and compare it

to our extensive library of what life looks

like here on Earth.”

Smith said it will be a great day for science,

a great day for space exploration,

when the Artemis I program officially

launches. The launch is now scheduled for

mid-November. He added that he hopes it

will inspire a new generation of explorers

who go out and discover, and build their

own backyard rockets, and dream.
