Last year’s Christmas in the Village in Mount Sterling

enjoyed the largest turnout in its history. Members

of the Mount Sterling Chamber of Commerce,

hosts of the community event, are hoping to keep the

momentum going this year.

“Being out on the street and seeing all the people

interacting and just having a good time—that’s what I

really thrive on. We hope to see that return this year,”

said Barbie Wallace, one of the event’s organizers.

Christmas party planned for South Solon kids

POSTAL PATRON

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

Tiphany Kennedy-Chaffin moved to South Solon

13 years ago. She raised her son there. She’s a member

of the village council there. She loves living

there. And this holiday season, she is giving back to

her beloved community by throwing a Christmas

party for children.

She’s calling the party “Christmas in the Village.”

The event will take place 2-4 p.m. Dec. 3 at

the Stokes Township Firehouse, 7105 E. Main St.,

South Solon.

Every child who visits the firehouse during the

party will receive gifts and snacks and have an opportunity

to visit with Santa. Picture This Photography

will take photos of children with Santa for $5

each. Half of the cost will go back into the Christmas

party fund for next year. The other half goes to

cover photo supplies.

While the party is for all kids in the village,

Kennedy-Chaffin has an especially soft heart for

those whose families are going through tough times.

“We unfortunately have a few families in town

who really struggle during the holidays, and the

children do not always get any type of celebration. I

want to bring smiles to their faces, if even just for a

couple of hours,” she said.

Kennedy-Chaffin is especially thankful to the

Stokes Township trustees and the fire department for

jumping on board to help make the party a reality.

“They’re pulling the trucks out of the firehouse.

We’re setting up tables. It’s going to be a big to-do,” she

said. “I’m tickled to death. I’m so excited about this.”

Some of the toys for the gift giveaway came courtesy

of a chili supper the firehouse hosted in late October.

The cost for the supper was $6 or a donated

toy. Kennedy-Chaffin also is thankful for the Madison-Plains

and London students who have volunteered

to help with set-up and hand out gifts.

The party is the second community-wide event

Kennedy-Chaffin has organized this year. This summer,

she coordinated a village-wide yard sale. She

plans to make that and the Christmas party annual

events. These efforts are part of her mission to rejuvenate

the town.

“I believe South Solon has great potential and

just needs a jumpstart to get back to what it once

was,” she said.

Since 1992, the Central Ohio AFP board has

publicly recognized local philanthropic leaders

and celebrated their impact in the community

through National Philanthropy Day.

Santino, a sophomore at West Jefferson High

School, has found himself within the cancer world

the entirety of his life. In March 2006, just 10

days after Santino’s parents, Michael and Brooke,

found out they were expecting a child, Michael

was diagnosed with adenoid cystic carcinoma—a

rare head and neck cancer. In 2015, at 9 years old,

Santino made the decision to stand up and do

something in the fight against cancer. At a young

age, he possessed a desire to help others going

through similar battles.

Santino Carnevale

succumbed to his long battle with cancer in the

fall of 2016, but that hasn’t slowed Santino’s

efforts in the least.

Proceeds raised from Santino’s initiatives

have exceeded $135,000 for the Head and Neck

Cancer Strategic Fund.

Santino holds a 4.0 grade point average

(GPA), serves as class vice president, and is a

scholar athlete at West Jefferson High School.

He is a member of the soccer and track teams

and played basketball his freshman year. He

is active in Renaissance Class, a group that

works to promote and improve school culture.

He also is a member of student council.

Outside of school, he is a member of the James Ambassador Society

Santino began by organizing a lemonade stand and bake sale.

He did it in honor of his father, as well as his grandfather, the late

Franklin County Sheriff Jim Karnes, who passed away from pancreatic

cancer when Santino was 4 years old. The first year of the

lemonade stand, Santino raised $5,000, and he has never looked

back. He formed an initiative known as “Santino’s Crusade for a

Cancer-Free World.” In addition to the lemonade stand and bake

sale, he hosts an Ohio State tailgate party in West Jefferson. His

family, friends, and classmates have joined him in his efforts.

Santino is widely known throughout The James as one of the

youngest adolescents to establish a fund and is often referred to as

at OSUCCC-James and is the youngest member inducted into

the society. He is a referee for West Jefferson youth soccer and has

served as assistant coordinator of the West Jefferson Ox Roast.

In addition to the AFP philanthropy award, Santino has received

the 2018 Jefferson Award which recognizes individuals who do extraordinary

things in their community, the

Shining Star Award from the Sons of Italy

honoring people who make a difference, and

the Leon Garrett Award for students with

above average GPAs and outstanding leadership

and community involvement.

mean they are going to like it, nor does it mean they are going to be

well-behaved.

It is a good thing almost all of the actors in “The People We Hate

at the Wedding” are charismatic because the characters they play

tend to act out in ways that are hard to sympathize with. That is

not to say every book, film, or television show has to have likeable

characters at its center, but you end up with a harder read or watch

without them.

The fact that the audience can, at times, feel sorry for the characters

is another testament to the skill and charm of the actors, but

it does bring up script issues. Although wickedly sharp at times,

the story (adapted by Lizzy Molyneux-Logelin and Wendy

Molyneux from a novel by Grant Ginder) does not delve too deeply

into the characters’ motivations. So, we cannot fully embrace their

acts of rebellion. At times, it just feels too bratty and unjustified,

which I suppose can be a form of entertainment if the mood hits

just right.

Not everyone can enjoy watching films filled with awkward moments—director

Claire Scanlon has a true talent for staging cringeworthy

scenes—but I think those who can tolerate it will find some

enjoyment from “The People We Hate at the Wedding.” Not everything

the film does hits, and some of the more sincere and dramatic

moments feel out of place, but the film will make you laugh, smile,

and thank a deity that your immediate family is not like theirs. And

if it is, well, try to turn that dynamic into a book or a script because

some people would really enjoy it.

Fire station visit

Tri-County Fire Department was the destination for Mount Sterling Public Library’s Preschool

Storytime on Oct. 17. In honor of Fire Prevention Month, the group took a walk to

the fire station after reading the book, “No Dragons for Tea: Fire Safety for Kids (and

Dragons)” by Jean Pendziwol and Martine Gourbault. Firefighter Bruce Alkire taught the

kids about what to do in case of an emergency, such as a fire, and explained the Stop,

Drop & Roll technique. Firefighter Connor Deitz donned his turnout gear to encourage

the kids not to be scared, and Lt. Zach Graham provided information about the gear,

hoses, tools and equipment on the trucks. The trucks were a big hit. The visit was cut

short due to a fire run, so the kids left a big thank-you card for the firefighters to read

upon their return. Those who took part in the special storytime and field trip included:

(from left) Rudy Sebens, Josh and Logan Marcum, Matthew Winner, Jayce and Levi Puckett,

and Aria and Jennifer Kern.

AGENCY MANAGEMENT, INC., DEFENDANT

Agency Management, Inc., whose last known address was 3220 Creston Court, Columbus, Ohio

43017; but whose present place of business is unknown, will take notice on September 1, 2022,

Bank of America, N.A. filed its Complaint in Case No. CVH 20220167, in the Court of Common Pleas

Madison County, Ohio alleging that Defendant, Agency Management, Inc., has or claims to have

an interest in the mortgage recorded with the Madison County Recorder’s Office as Volume 319,

Page 0106-0111, on December 15, 1993, involving the real estate described as follows: Situated

in the State of Ohio, County of Madison, and in the City of West Jefferson, and being Lot No. 326

of Westwood Estates Section #3, as the same is numbered and delineated upon the recorded plat

thereof, of record in Plat Book 2, Page(s) 12-15, Madison County Recorder. Permanent Parcel No.

10-01612.000.

Property Address: 885 Crescent Drive, West Jefferson, Ohio 43162.

The Petitioner further alleges that the assignment of mortgage from the Defendant Agency

mortgage.

that said Mortgage has been fully paid, is no longer an encumbrance on the Property and is

declared satisfied of record; and an order requiring the County Recorder of Madison County to
