The proposal

As it stands, the committee’s proposal

calls for one building with two wings—one

for grades K-6 and one for grades 7-12—to be

built toward the back of the district’s 178-

acre property at the corner of State Route

38 and Linson Road. The location would put

the building on the highest ground on the

property and away from the traffic on Route

38, allowing for good drainage and increased

safety. Currently, the FFA chapter farms

the ground.

Most or all of the current school buildings

on the property would be torn down. Among

them are the high school which was built in

the 1970s, the intermediate school built in

1956 with an addition in 1979, and the modular

units erected 12 years ago to serve the

elementary students. It’s possible that the

FFA farm operations would move to this

portion of the property.

The committee came to this proposal

after considering various options, from renovation

to replacement and from a single lo-

MP proposal: replace

all buildings with one

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

The Madison-Plains facilities advisory

committee is proposing that the school district

replace its current buildings with one

new building serving grades K-12.

Before presenting their proposal to the

school board for consideration, committee

members are collecting input from the public.

The first of two community meetings

was held on Nov. 17 in Mount Sterling. The

second meeting is set for 7 p.m. Dec. 5 in the

high school gym.

“This is all tentative at this point because

they are waiting on feedback from the public,”

said Superintendent Chad Eisler about

the committee’s proposal.

The facilities advisory committee is composed

of a cross-section of the community

with representation from the seven townships

in the school district, people of different

ages and professions, and people with

and without children enrolled in the schools.

The group has met several times over the

last several months to determine a potential

course of action for the future of the dis-

WJ: Lots of lights

and lots of Santa

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

Put on by the West Jefferson Community Association (WJCA),

this year’s Christmas in the Park is a two-day event that will take

place under more than 300,000 lights in Garrette Park. The celebration

is set for 5-10 p.m. Dec. 9-10. From entertainment to food,

everything is free; donations are welcome.

The man of the hour, Santa Claus, will be available to hear children’s

wishes both nights. He can be found in the Santa House from

5-10 p.m. Friday and after the parade on Saturday until 10 p.m.

Participants are asked to sign up for a time slot by leaving their

name and phone number at the Santa House; they will receive a

text when it’s their turn. Parents are welcome to bring their own

cameras to take photos.

Bonus Santa hours are planned for 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday. (No

other activities will take place during this time.) Call Carol Beachy,

WJCA president, to make an appointment, (614) 406-7033.

“We’ve added the extra hours to give Santa more time with more

kids. It might give families with younger kids or kids with special

needs a little more time,” Beachy said.

cation to multiple locations.

“They went into this process without any preconceived

notion of what (the proposal) would be,” Eisler

said.

“We understand that some of the people of Mount

Sterling would like to see a school building in their village,”

he continued. “The committee has taken data into

consideration and feedback into consideration, and at

this point they believe the best thing for the district as a

whole and students as a whole would be to put a single

building on one campus. That is the recommendation of

the committee at this time.”

The benefits of a single campus, Eisler said, are that

teachers could meet easily to discuss curriculum, all students

would receive the same services and amenities,

and operations would be more efficient and without duplication

allowing for financial efficiencies.

According to district Treasurer Todd Mustain, operation

of buildings on multiple campuses would cost an

estimated $1.3 million more per year than operation of

a single building. He also noted the cost to build one

building instead of multiple buildings in different locations

would save the district an estimated $2 million.

Cost and payment

The overall estimated cost for the project the committee

is proposing is $72 million. For funding, the group is

looking at a combination of funds from the Ohio Facilities

Construction Commission (OFCC) and a bond issue

to be placed on the ballot.

The OFCC must approve projects it helps to fund. The

commission places emphasis on educational spaces over

areas like gyms and

auditoriums. As a result,

OFCC-funded

projects tend to have

smaller gyms and

auditoriums with

less seating. School

districts can opt to

enhance those areas

on their own dime

and still receive

OFCC funding to offset

costs of the rest of

the project.

www.madisonmessengernews.com

Currently, the commission estimates it could cover 9

percent ($5.5 million) of the co-funded portion of the

project which would be approximately $62 million. The

estimated cost to build the gym and auditorium spaces

to suit the district would be another $10 million.

Mustain noted that the last time Madison-Plains

passed a bond issue for facilities was 1976. He also noted

that Madison-Plains is the only school district in Madison

County without some sort of new facilities in recent

years.

“We are well past time for needed improvements or

replacements of our facilities,” he said. “The district has

done its best to make sure we’re fiscally sound from an

operational standpoint to put ourselves in the best position

possible for facility improvements or replacements.”

He added that Madison-Plains has one of the lowest

effective millage rates in the area.

Next steps

Following the public input meeting on Dec. 5, the facilities

advisory committee will take into consideration

the feedback they receive and finalize their proposal for

presentation to the school board on Dec. 20.

“It’s up to the board to decide what they want to do

with the committee’s recommendation. If they want to

move forward, they will need to begin passing resolutions

in January to get a bond issue on the May ballot,”

Eisler said.

Timing on any type of project would depend on the

district securing funding. Construction would take three

to five years to complete from the time a bond issue was

passed.

Phat Daddy’s serves up 1,269 turkey dinners

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

When it comes to Thanksgiving, the folks

at Phat Daddy’s Pizza—along with their

friends and supporters—outdo themselves

year after year.

Since 2012, the London restaurant has

made free turkey dinners for pickup or delivery

on Thanksgiving Day for anyone who

wants them. This year, meals went to 1,269

Madison County residents—a new high for

the annual effort.

“If you ever want to know how much

turkey you need to feed 1,269 people, it’s

729.52 pounds!” said Phat Daddy’s owner,

Angie Harris.

The statistics don’t stop there. The team

pulling off this huge outreach includes six

or seven people in the kitchen and 15 delivery

teams usually made up of two people

each. The kitchen crew cooks and freezes

parts of the meal several days ahead of time,

then meets early on the big day to warm it

up and prepare the rest of the meal—from

corn and baked beans to ham, stuffing, and

mashed potatoes and gravy.

“This year, we started at 4 a.m., two

hours earlier than usual because of how

many meals we were making,” Harris said.

Three area families arrive at 7 a.m. to

bag up rolls, butter, silverware, and thankyou

notes listing everyone who donated in

some way. The night before, another family

takes care of bagging up the pies.

The whole thing got rolling when a local

non-profit was unable to keep their own

Thanksgiving meal giveaway going. Harris

and the Phat Daddy’s staff stepped in. The

yearly meal tallies tell the story of how

much the outreach has grown:

2012—50 meals

2013—141 meals

2014—190 meals

2015—239 meals

2016—366 meals

2017—439 meals

2018—483 meals

2019—704 meals

And all of our volunteers and anonymous donors.

2020—854 meals

2021—1,102 meals

2022—1,269 meals

While these stats are impressive, what

can’t be counted by number is the heartwarming

amount of goodwill and gratitude

that comes from it.

“I still see people at the grocery store who

stop me and tell me the only reason they got

a Thanksgiving dinner was because of us,”

Harris said.

Most of the people who sign up to receive

meals are older, on their own, or struggling

financially, Harris explained. During the

first year of the COVID-19 pandemic, residents

who were stuck at home appreciated

the delivery of a special meal. This year,

many said their finances were stretched

thin due to the economy. No matter a person’s

circumstances, Phat Daddy’s opens its

Thanksgiving doors to everyone.

That generosity is reciprocated in the

form of people coming out of the woodwork

to donate time, food, and money.

“For the first three years, we (Phat

Daddy’s) did everything and covered all the

costs, but now I get a lot of donations,” Harris

said.

One example is a man who received a

meal five years ago. He was homeless at the

time and promised he would donate a

turkey every year moving forward. True to

his word, he has shown up each of the last

four years with a turkey to donate.

Several small businesses and random individuals

pitch in. Some people donate the

turkeys they receive as gifts from their employers.

Others ask for a list of what’s

needed and then show up with food.

“I never even ask. People just donate.

They just want to help,” Harris said.
