Schools’<br />

levy on<br />

ballot<br />

Volley for the Cure victory<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

<strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> school district voters<br />

will decide on a 10.2 mill, five-year substitute<br />

levy when they go to the polls on Nov.<br />

7.<br />

<strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> Schools officials said<br />

the levy would generate nearly $7 million<br />

for operating expenses.<br />

The annual $6.8 million collection<br />

accounts for 12 percent of the district’s<br />

yearly revenue.<br />

Despite the name, district officials<br />

assure the voting public the levy is not a<br />

new tax. It is a renewal of an existing one.<br />

The current levy expires at the end of<br />

2024.<br />

“The approval of the substitute levy<br />

would continue current collections,” said<br />

<strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> Schools Treasurer Nick<br />

Roberts. “It's really important for us to<br />

think ahead and plan our budget.<br />

According to the law, we only get a few<br />

chances to renew the current levy. So, voting<br />

this November helps us continue to<br />

manage our budget responsibly and plan<br />

for the future.”<br />

The current substitute emergency levy<br />

started in 2009 and was renewed in 2011,<br />

2014, and 2019.<br />

“The levy is an important part of our<br />

ability to maintain a balanced budget for<br />

the last seven years,”said Roberts, “but we<br />

like to check in every five or 10 years to<br />

make sure it’s still needed. Money from the<br />

state and the federal government, along<br />

with our local taxes, has helped us balance<br />

REYNOLDS LEADS FIRST<br />

HOUSING COMMITTEE<br />

MEETING<br />

Ohio Senate President Matt Huffman (R-Lima) announced<br />

the creation of a new Senate Select Committee<br />

on Housing to be chaired by State Senator<br />

Michele Reynolds (R-<strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong>). “Homeownership<br />

is a cornerstone of building a strong financial<br />

foundation for Ohio families,” said President Huffman.<br />

“This committee will hold hearings to learn<br />

what additional steps the state can take to encourage<br />

homeownership while removing barriers that<br />

entrepreneurs encounter as they work to revitalize<br />

our neighborhoods.”<br />

Ohio has a growing workforce with housing needs.<br />

It is essential that we prepare and learn how to foster<br />

smart residential development so that more people<br />

can participate in the American dream of homeownership,<br />

which is one of the best ways to build wealth<br />

in America.<br />

Having spent almost 30 years of my career creating<br />

affordable housing solutions, I am aware of the gravity<br />

of the housing crisis, and I am excited to lead this<br />

effort in finding innovative and lasting solutions for<br />

Ohioans. Throughout my career, I have been committed<br />

to bipartisan cooperation and will continue<br />

bridging the divide to achieve meaningful progress.<br />

Housing is an issue that transcends political lines,<br />

and I firmly believe that by working together, we can<br />

enact the changes that Ohio urgently needs and set<br />

a new precedent for our nation.<br />

The committee commenced its first hearing in August<br />

and has held several hearings at the Statehouse.<br />

Starting <strong>October</strong>, the committee will hold additional<br />

hearings throughout Ohio and conduct site tours<br />

over the next several months. I am excited to listen<br />

and learn from more Ohioans across the state to uncover<br />

the challenges they face in their communities.<br />

Committee members include Vice Chair Senator<br />

Terry Johnson (R-McDermott), Senator Louis W. Blessing,<br />

III (R-Colerain Township), Senator Andrew Brenner<br />

(R-Delaware), and Senator Hearcel F. Craig<br />

(D-Columbus).<br />

Individuals interested in receiving committee notifications,<br />

providing testimony or hosting housing site<br />

tours are asked to contact Senator Reynolds’ office<br />

by calling 614-466-8064 or by<br />

emailing SD03@ohiosenate.gov.<br />

Do you know what your children<br />

are eating for lunch at<br />

At one time, the U.S. Department<br />

of Agriculture – which<br />

does not allow school lunch programs<br />

to serve non-nutritive<br />

foods such as soda, coffee, tea<br />

and candy – prohibited the sale<br />

of these items on premises because<br />

they competed with<br />

school lunches. But soft drink<br />

manufacturers sued the agency<br />

and had the rule overturned in<br />

court after a long legal battle.<br />

So now it is up to you. Find out<br />

if your school has a canteen or<br />

vending machines for soft drinks<br />

and snacks. If it does, have a talk<br />

with your child. Ask what he or<br />

she is eating. Try to teach your<br />

child about the importance of<br />

good nutrition. Possibly substituting<br />

a homemade lunch for<br />

lunch money might be a good<br />

way to guarantee a healthy<br />

lunch for your child.<br />

money from our community since 2009 because of this combined<br />

support.”<br />

If renewed, the annual cost for $100,000 in home valuation is<br />

$357. If it is not renewed, the district has their next chance for<br />

approval in March 2024.<br />

<strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> Schools has until the end of 2024 to renew<br />

the substitute levy. If it does not pass by that time, district revenue<br />

would begin to exceed expenditures and deficit spending<br />

could start in fiscal year 2025.<br />

Unlike other types of property levies, a substitute levy applies<br />

the same tax rate to new construction in the district. If new houses<br />

or businesses are built, the district will receive additional revenue<br />

from new taxpayers.<br />

Funds generated by the levy are used for operating expenses<br />

including supplies, materials, salaries, benefits, utilities, fuel for<br />

buses, learning platforms, professional development, and security.

CW Founders Day will honor Civil War hero<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

The <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> Area Historical<br />

Society is celebrating a hometown war<br />

hero this year during its Founders Day celebration,<br />

albeit 160 years after he died in a<br />

Confederate prison.<br />

The life of Pvt. Alfred Cannon–a Union<br />

soldier who volunteered to take the place of<br />

fellow soldier so the man could return to<br />

his family - ended as a POW in a Florence,<br />

S.C. Confederate prison on Jan. 21, 1865 -<br />

will be remembered on Founders Day,<br />

which will be held on Oct. 14 from 9 a.m. to<br />

3 p.m. at the 10 W. Oak St. historical complex.<br />

“Alfred was a <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> resident<br />

serving in the Union Army who was<br />

captured and taken prisoner at Brices<br />

Crossroads, Miss.,” said event Chairperson<br />

Marie Gibbons. “He died of typhoid fever in<br />

a prison camp. We are starting the day<br />

with rededicating a plaque in the CWAHS<br />

complex for Pvt. Cannon and by a proclamation<br />

from the city naming Oct. 14 as<br />

‘Alfred Cannon Day.’ There will be a short<br />

ceremony and the mayor will rededicate<br />

the plaque.”<br />

Founder’s Day–held by the society for<br />

the first time in 1976 as a way to share and<br />

preserve the history of the village by touring<br />

historic homes and businesses–is<br />

filled with period-dressed volunteers, presentations,<br />

a vendor’s market, music, food<br />

and activities for all ages.<br />

Visitors are invited to dress in period<br />

costumes as well.<br />

“There will be a civil war encampment,<br />

which demonstrates what serving in the<br />

military was like during that time,” said<br />

Gibbons. “People can also meet and take<br />

pictures with Abe Lincoln, talk with him,<br />

and hear the ‘Gettysburg Address.’ You’ll<br />

hear Civil War-era music and there are<br />

kids crafts and games. All activities are<br />

free, except for the bouquet-making workshop.”<br />

Mr. Lincoln’s morning presentation is<br />

geared more for adults, while his afternoon<br />

event is more elementary age oriented with<br />

fruit cobbler provided by O’Charleys.<br />

Roxanne Sams, who penned a middleschool<br />

age book about the underground<br />

railroad, will be reading to children from<br />

her “Whispers From the Shadows: An<br />

Underground Railroad Mystery.”<br />

According to Gibbons, vendor offerings<br />

include pies; small batch fruit jams and<br />

butters; heirloom axe and tool restorations;<br />

and handmade leather goods and gifts for<br />

home, camp, and garden.<br />

Handcrafted goods also include wooden<br />

bowls, cutting and serving boards; salsas;<br />

woven rugs; scarves; table runners and<br />

dyed silk products; soaps; honey and<br />

beeswax products.<br />

Parking is available in a large lot immediately<br />

north of the historical society complex,<br />

along Oak Street and behind Prentiss<br />

School.<br />

“It is inspiring to honor the people who<br />

founded our community and recognize<br />

their challenges and accomplishments,”<br />

said Gibbons.<br />

Hamilton Twp. fire levy on ballot<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Hamilton Township is taking a bundling approach<br />

in asking voters to renew a pair of fire levies, while<br />

adding another mill and a half to the total in raising<br />

enough revenue to address needs and replace aging<br />

equipment.<br />

Bundling the three and four mill (seven mill total)<br />

renewal levies will not cost property owners more than<br />

what is currently collected. The only new money is<br />

through an additional 1.5 mils, bringing the combined<br />

total to 8.5 mils, which is the amount that will appear<br />

on the Nov. 7 ballot.<br />

“Residents will only notice a slight increase because<br />

the other seven mills have already been levied in the<br />

past,” said Richard Lewis, treasurer for Citizens for<br />

Hamilton Township Fire Levy. “The old levies provided<br />

$2,514,154 per year for the Hamilton Township Fire<br />

Department. The 1.5 mill addition will provide an<br />

additional $656,460 per year for the township fire<br />

department. Over the lifespan, it will bring in<br />

$3,282,300.”<br />

Lewis said the cost of living continues to increase<br />

throughout the country and fire departments are not<br />

immune to the situation. He said adjustments were<br />

made to budgets, but the township is not able to sustain<br />

the old model under the restraints of current<br />

levies.<br />

“The (bundled levy) funds are only for increases in<br />

operational costs and are the lowest amounts possible<br />

to maintain the current model of operation,” said<br />

Lewis. “This levy will only increase taxes by $52.50 per<br />

$100,000 of property valuation.<br />

This breaks down to $4.37 per<br />

month per $100,000.<br />

The fire department delivers<br />

round-the-clock coverage for<br />

unincorporated areas of<br />

Hamilton Township, Obetz,<br />

Lockbourne,<br />

Reese,<br />

Rickenbacker, Shadeville, and<br />

surrounding communities with<br />

full time and part time members<br />

working at two stations.<br />

eaches<br />

The department is dispatched<br />

by the city of Columbus<br />

and provides emergency medical<br />

services, fire suppression, hazardous<br />

material response, and<br />

A<br />

Y<br />

Community Paramedicine serv-<br />

PE<br />

ices. It averages more than<br />

5,500 runs a year.<br />

sto<br />

r<br />

The volunteer group treasurer<br />

said the increase is needed for<br />

several reasons.<br />

“First, we are looking to<br />

replace two of our trucks within<br />

the next five years,” said Lewis.<br />

“We have an older ambulance and fire engine that are<br />

going to meet their life expectancy within that time<br />

frame. Second, the economy has made costs rise<br />

beyond what the old levies provided. The 1.5 mill<br />

increase was the most cost-effective way to provide the<br />

funds needed without placing a large burden on the<br />

residents.”<br />

According to Lewis, COVID-19 impacted the department<br />

in many ways. He said firefighter/paramedics<br />

worked diligently through the pandemic and often sacrificed<br />

time with loved ones in order to provide service<br />

to the township.<br />

The federal government provided additional funds<br />

to public service departments and Hamilton Township<br />

operated within the confines of the rules for the federal<br />

aid.<br />

“We were able to update equipment and provide<br />

relief for the budget due to higher costs,” Lewis said.<br />

“However, we do not currently use any grants or federal<br />

funding in the operation of the Hamilton Township<br />

Fire Department.”<br />

What happens if voters say no in November? It is<br />

back to the ballot at a later date.<br />

“I encourage all residents to go to the Franklin<br />

County auditor's site and look up the assessment of<br />

their home’s value,” Lewis said. “This will help them<br />

gain a better understanding of the costs involved.<br />

Market value and assessed value are not the same.<br />

The assessed value is typically much lower than the<br />

market value.”<br />

Ban on operating phone while driving<br />

PAGE 6 - SOUTH & CANAL WINCHESTER MESSENGER - <strong>October</strong> 8, <strong>2023</strong><br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

If you use your hands to text or dial a cell<br />

phone while operating a motor vehicle, the<br />

warning period for violating Ohio’s new<br />

hand’s free law is over and as of Oct. 5, law<br />

enforcement is issuing violations for people<br />

caught with their phone in hand while driving.<br />

“Back in April we made an announcement<br />

about the new distracted driving law,”<br />

Madison Township Police Chief Gary York at<br />

the Madison Township trustees’ Sept. 26<br />

meeting. “There was a six month educational<br />

time frame and that’s coming to an end. If<br />

officers witness a violation, they can stop<br />

them (driver). You can be cited for a first<br />

offense a $150 fine and two points for a moving<br />

violation.”<br />

For a second offense in two years, three<br />

points are assessed to a license and a driver<br />

could pay up to a $250 fine. If there is a third<br />

or more offense in two years, four points are<br />

assessed to a license, up to a $500 fine, and a<br />

possible 90-day suspension of driver license.<br />

Fines are doubled if the violation occurs in a<br />

work zone.<br />

“The penalties get pretty stiff for violations,”<br />

The new law allows drivers over 18 to<br />

make or receive phone calls using hands-free<br />

technology such as Bluetooth or systems integrated<br />

within their vehicle as long as they do<br />

not hold or support the device or manually<br />

enter letters, numbers of symbols.<br />

Drivers under age 18 are restricted from<br />

using their devices in any way.<br />

Hands-free non-emergency calls can only<br />

be made or received by drivers age 18 and<br />

older via a speakerphone, earpiece, wireless<br />

headset, electronic watch or connecting the<br />

phone to a vehicle. Texting, dialing, browsing<br />

social media, video calls or FaceTime, browsing<br />

the internet, watching videos, playing<br />

games, and recording or streaming video are<br />

not allowed while driving.<br />

If a driver must physically manipulate<br />

their device, they should pull over to a safe<br />

location and park their car.<br />

Exceptions include drivers reporting an<br />

emergency to law enforcement, a hospital,<br />

health care provider, fire department, or similar<br />

emergency entity; holding a phone to<br />

their ear only during phone conversations, if<br />

the call is started or stopped with a single<br />

touch or swipe; holding or using cell phones<br />

and other electronic devices while stopped at<br />

a traffic light or parked on a road or highway<br />

during an emergency or road closure. First<br />

ree ways to get involved in local politics<br />

The following are three simple ways<br />

people with a passion for politics can get<br />

involved in their local governments.<br />

1. Volunteer with a campaign. Local<br />

politicians may be your neighbor, your children’s<br />

youth sports coach or a friend you’ve<br />

known since childhood. All political campaigns<br />

rely on the efforts of volunteers to<br />

get their messages out, and that’s especially<br />

so in local elections. Local candidates<br />

likely don’t have the financial war chest<br />

that’s available to statewide or national<br />

politicians. Local politicians often must<br />

stretch every dollar, and that becomes easier<br />

with each additional volunteer who<br />

joins their staff. If there’s a candidate you<br />

feel strongly about, don’t hesitate to volunteer<br />

with his or her campaign.<br />

2. Work with a nonprofit organization.<br />

<strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> Residents,<br />

My name is Alec McLaughlin, and I want to<br />

earn your vote for City Council on Nov. 7. I am<br />

running because I love our city and want to protect<br />

it. I grew up here and am now raising my<br />

family here. My goal is for my son to experience<br />

the same <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> that my wife and I<br />

have over the last three decades. I understand<br />

<strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> and know what makes it special.<br />

It is the crown jewel of south-Central Ohio.<br />

Outside of loving this community, below is why I<br />

am well suited to help lead our community.<br />

Military Service - I served in the Ohio Army<br />

National Guard for eight years. The Army<br />

instilled many values in me including integrity,<br />

duty, and selfless service. I understand what it<br />

means to put the needs of our citizens and the<br />

greater good before myself.<br />

Mike Ebert, is a 56-year resident of the city of<br />

<strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> and a lifelong member of the<br />

community.<br />

Having grown up on a farm, Mike learned<br />

early on what hard work is about and the benefits<br />

of it. After graduating from CWHS, Mike went to<br />

work at <strong>Winchester</strong> Farm Sausage Company<br />

where his work ethic paid off and he was appointed<br />

as a lead worker just six months into the job.<br />

He later became the Plant Manager before being<br />

appointed to VP of Production. Because of his<br />

drive, Mike held two other part time jobs while<br />

working at <strong>Winchester</strong> Farm which paid off when,<br />

at the age of 22, Mike and his wife Carolyn purchased<br />

their first home together in CW.<br />

Today, Mike still has the same attitude towards<br />

Many nonprofit organizations are involved<br />

with local politics. Some may support a<br />

candidate who’s supported their missions,<br />

while others’ missions may be rooted in politics.<br />

Individuals who don’t want to get<br />

involved in the partisan side of local politics<br />

can still lend a hand by working with<br />

nonprofit organizations that are not affiliated<br />

with a party or candidate.<br />

3. Work with local election boards. Local<br />

election boards rely on volunteers come<br />

Election Day. Such volunteers work in<br />

polling stations.<br />

The more volunteers who can pitch in on<br />

Election Day, the more smoothly voting can<br />

go. Local governments also may need volunteers<br />

throughout the year to work during<br />

city council meetings.<br />

Education - I graduated from The Ohio State<br />

University with a degree in Political Science. I<br />

understand how our government and political system<br />

works. Also, I graduated from <strong>Canal</strong><br />

<strong>Winchester</strong> High School.<br />

Business Acumen - I have built relationships<br />

and brokered deals with countless small businesses<br />

and large corporations over the last 10 years.<br />

This experience has given me the ability to help<br />

draw the right businesses to our city, businesses<br />

that are interested in investing back into our community.<br />

We need partners with a vested interest in<br />

our city.<br />

Community Service - I have coached for the<br />

Pride Soccer Club and have volunteered for<br />

Methodist Church.<br />

Re-elect Mike Ebert<br />

the value of hard work. He was first elected<br />

Mayor in 2007 and holds that position still today.<br />

He has surrounded himself with some of the best<br />

professionals around who share the same passion<br />

of working hard for <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> residents.<br />

Together they watched <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> grow<br />

from a village to a city by building new city<br />

offices and public parks, expanding annual street<br />

projects, widening the city’s tax base with economic<br />

development, and increasing city staffing,<br />

all while not raising taxes for residents.<br />

On top of his mayoral duties, Mike also volunteers<br />

his time for various special events in the<br />

community. Mike would like your support in continuing<br />

to make <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> the “Greatest<br />

Little City in Ohio.”<br />

Make Election Day<br />

go more smoothly<br />

Election Day gives voters throughout<br />

the United States a chance to participate<br />

in their government.<br />

The right to vote is something to cherish,<br />

as many people across the globe do not<br />

get a chance to elect the officials who govern<br />

their countries.<br />

While Election Day is an exciting time,<br />

voters may find it frustrating if they do not<br />

take steps to ensure things go smoothly<br />

when they head to the polls. The following<br />

tips can help voters prepare for Election<br />

Day.<br />

•Confirm your polling location. Polling<br />

locations may have changed since last<br />

year, and voters who have moved in the<br />

past 12 months may now have to vote in a<br />

new location.<br />

Voters can contact their local board of<br />

elections or visit www.Vote411.org to confirm<br />

the correct polling locations. Voters<br />

should also learn the hours when the polls<br />

are open so they do not arrive too early or<br />

too late to vote.<br />

•Bring photo identification. Voter identification<br />

laws vary by state, but voters<br />

who want to avoid hassles or holdups may<br />

be able to do so by bringing current photo<br />

identification with them to the polling<br />

place.<br />

While such identification is not necessarily<br />

a requirement, voters who bring<br />

along a driver’s license or state identification<br />

card may get in and out of the polling<br />

place more quickly than those who do not.<br />

•Confirm registration. Voters can confirm<br />

that they have registered to vote by<br />

contacting their local board of elections in<br />

advance of Election Day. Sometimes voters’<br />

names may not appear on the registration<br />

list when they arrive to vote, even if<br />

they previously registered. Poll workers<br />

can help voters who find themselves in<br />

such situations. But voters who want to<br />

avoid such hassles on Election Day can<br />

confirm their registration beforehand.<br />

•Be familiar with the candidates and<br />

issues on the ballot. Voting is a privilege<br />

and a responsibility, so voters should<br />

familiarize themselves with the candidates<br />

and issues on the ballot in the weeks leading<br />

up to Election Day. In addition to<br />

national or statewide candidates and<br />

issues, voters should learn about local<br />

issues that may have a more direct impact<br />

on their daily lives. The more voters learn<br />

about the candidates and issues in<br />

advance, the more quickly they can cast<br />

their votes and get to work or return home.<br />

Voting on Election Day is a privilege<br />

that voters should not take lightly. Taking<br />

certain steps in the weeks ahead of<br />

Election Day can make it easier for voters<br />

to cast their ballots.<br />

Research candidates<br />

for upcoming elections<br />

Presidential elections may grab the<br />

national headlines, but local elections also<br />

have a big impact on voters’ daily lives.<br />

Locally elected officials are typically<br />

much more accessible to voters, whose participation<br />

in local elections can bring about<br />

real change.<br />

With that in mind, here are some tips to<br />

prepare for Election Day, whether you are<br />

selecting state, county, town, provincial,<br />

labor union, or school officials.<br />

•Solidify your stance. The first step to<br />

casting your vote is deciding how you feel<br />

about key issues and candidates.<br />

Some voters back a particular political<br />

party, while others spend more time moving<br />

across party lines and standing with<br />

politicians who have like-minded goals and<br />

ideas. Make a list of the issues that you<br />

find most important and want addressed in<br />

this election. Then research the stance<br />

each candidate takes on the issues that<br />

most resonate with you.<br />

•Research the candidates. Conduct<br />

some preliminary research into each candidate<br />

running for office. Chances are their<br />

websites provide background information<br />

regarding their qualifications as well as<br />

their stances on certain issues.<br />

Many times newspapers will offer their<br />

own round-up on local candidates so you<br />

can get to know them further. Such information<br />

can save you the time and effort of<br />

looking into candidates on your own. Delve<br />

further when needed to see if the facts are<br />

correct. Examine public records for policies<br />

candidates supported to confirm if their<br />

ideals are similar to your own.<br />

•Ignore the polls. If you strongly support<br />

a candidate and his or her agenda,<br />

then stick with your preferences rather<br />

than relying on the polls. Polls may be used<br />

to sway indecisive voters.<br />

However, even though the polls may be<br />

indicating one thing, the real test of a candidate’s<br />

mettle is the end result come<br />

Election Day.<br />

•Attend a town hall meeting. Many<br />

local candidates interact with voters at<br />

informal town hall meetings.<br />

This is a great chance to assess a candidate,<br />

and provides voters the opportunity<br />

to have their voices heard and ask questions<br />

about the issues that concern them.<br />

You also may be able to watch candidate<br />

forums on television or online.<br />

•Stick to the issues. The best candidate<br />

is not necessarily the one with the biggest<br />

campaign war chest. Resist the temptation<br />

to be swayed by the flashiest signs or the<br />

best slogan.<br />

Pay more attention to the candidates’<br />

answers on tough questions.

State<br />

Issue 1<br />

Most of us are beginning to see media commercials<br />

and direct mail pieces related to the two state issues<br />

on the November 7th ballot. In this and my next<br />

column, I will try to provide some clarity about<br />

these important proposals.<br />

State Issue 1, if approved by voters, will enshrine in<br />

the Ohio Constitution the legalization of abortion<br />

throughout Ohio. You can find the exact wording<br />

of the proposed amendment at https://www.<br />

ohiosos.gov/globalassets/elections/<strong>2023</strong>/gen/<br />

issuesreport.pdf. The weblink also provides an opportunity<br />

for proponents and opponents alike to articulate<br />

their positions on the issue.<br />

Proponents of the measure want the pregnant<br />

mother alone to be able to make the decisions she<br />

thinks are best for her. Proponents state further that<br />

the proposal protects women from what they feel<br />

are extreme abortion bans. In addition, the measure<br />

creates legal protections for persons or entities<br />

that perform or assist with abortions.<br />

Opponents feel that the proposed amendment<br />

goes too far. They state that the measure’s wording<br />

would allow abortions up to the point of birth. The<br />

amendment states, in part, that the State can prohibit<br />

an abortion only when the fetus is determined<br />

by the woman’s treating physician to be viable and<br />

only if the physician does not consider the abortion<br />

necessary to protect the pregnant woman’s life or<br />

health. Indeed, at least one U.S. Supreme Court ruling<br />

so broadly defines “health” that the treating<br />

physician, especially if an abortionist, can cite any<br />

factors—emotional, psychological, familial, and<br />

age—to justify the procedure.<br />

Opponents also cite that the proposal ends parental<br />

notification for a minor child seeking and obtaining<br />

an abortion. They also state that the measure abolishes<br />

care and safety treatment of a pregnant<br />

mother, like requiring a licensed doctor to perform<br />

an abortion.<br />

In short, proponents say that a “yes” vote keeps government<br />

out a woman’s personal decision and that<br />

such decisions about pregnancy and abortion<br />

should be free from government interference. Opponents<br />

state that a “no” vote protects Ohio’s Constitution<br />

from an allegedly extreme amendment<br />

that creates abortion-on-demand and eliminates<br />

parental rights.<br />

This is an important issue for which voters should<br />

consider all the arguments and make their most judicious<br />

decision. Make sure you vote on November<br />

7th.<br />

In my next column, I will write about State Issue 2,<br />

which. If approved, will legalize recreational marijuana<br />

for adults in Ohio.<br />

(Dave Dobos represents the 10th District in the Ohio<br />

House of Representatives, which consists of parts of<br />

Obituaries<br />

Carmen Lee Conrad passed away at her <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong>,<br />

Ohio home on September 16, <strong>2023</strong>. She was born April 6, 1946 in<br />

Columbus, Ohio.<br />

Carmen’s early years were devoted to her family and her community,<br />

where she was active in fundraising events, school and PTA functions,<br />

and in civic issues, notably foster care for teens and the Save North<br />

High School campaign. Later she and her husband Barry dedicated<br />

themselves to beekeeping and the family business, Conrad Hive and<br />

Honey. She educated youth about beekeeping and the importance of<br />

bees in the environment, and became a well-known honey judge supporting<br />

local competitions. She could be found at the Ohio State Fair<br />

at her honey booth where her honey-based foods, candles and soaps<br />

were always on display, or the Lithopolis Honey Fest as a founding<br />

member where she annually hosted the Honey Queen, or at the Clintonville<br />

Farmers Market on Saturday mornings. She always found time<br />

for her great loves of pie baking and sewing. Carmen will be dearly<br />

missed by her family, friends and her many customers and associates.<br />

She was preceded in death by her mother and father, Emma and Warren<br />

F. McKitrick, and her husband of 34 years, Barry E. Conrad. She is<br />

survived by her children: Cathy (David) Ferguson, Andrea Engle (Mike<br />

Colón), Bradley (Colleen) Conrad, Jeffrey (Mindy) Conrad; Grandchildren:<br />

Emily (Sam), Sara (Daniel), Hannah (Jimmy), Kelsey, Karissa (Eric),<br />

“Jules” is out of this world with charm<br />

The Reel Deal<br />

The official plot synopsis from that studio<br />

that released the film “Jules” is as follows:<br />

A man’s quiet life gets upended when<br />

a UFO crashes in his backyard in rural<br />

Pennsylvania.<br />

As he befriends this mysterious extraterrestrial,<br />

things start to get complicated<br />

when two neighbors discover it and the<br />

government quickly comes in.<br />

While noting the vagueness of this<br />

description, I must ask my movie reviewing<br />

audience what came to mind as you<br />

read the summarization? Do you envision a<br />

more adult “E.T” or something else? Maybe<br />

an action packed thriller in which neighbors<br />

band together to fight the power in<br />

order to protect an otherworldly being?<br />

Perhaps a comedy caper in which bumbling<br />

neighbors band together to fight the power<br />

in order to protect an otherworldly being?<br />

Or maybe it was something else like a baitand-switch<br />

in which the alien turns on the<br />

humans, or vice versa?<br />

You wouldn’t be wrong for thinking any<br />

of those things and you would be close to<br />

right if you pictured the second scenario<br />

with the bumbling neighbors.<br />

But what the official plot synopsis fails<br />

to describe is how that man is in need of<br />

connection and how he fills that void with<br />

the unlikely friendship that blooms<br />

between him, the alien, and the neighbors<br />

who discover his secret. It’s a bit puzzling<br />

that the author of the synopsis left those<br />

key pieces out — the point is to make<br />

movies sound appealing— but I assure you<br />

that this film is so much more than that<br />

bland summarization.<br />

The beautiful thing about “Jules” is that<br />

while it is a somewhat quiet and gentle<br />

movie, it is not bland or boring at all.<br />

Peppered with comedic elements and keen<br />

observations about life, this independent<br />

film now available for rent on streaming<br />

services explores how alienation can affect<br />

us all and how one little thing, such as a<br />

pure connection with an alien in this case,<br />

can kick us out of our reverie and bring us<br />

back to life.<br />

“Jules” begins simply enough, with an<br />

elderly gentleman named Milton Robinson<br />

(played by the great Sir Ben Kingsley) living<br />

that quiet, isolated life in rural<br />

Pennsylvania as described in the official<br />

synopsis. He is showing the earliest signs<br />

of memory trouble, but that might simply<br />

be the result of not having much going on<br />

in his life that is worth remembering.<br />

His days consist of brief and perfunctory<br />

conversations with his daughter Denise<br />

(Zoe Winters) in the morning and long sessions<br />

of watching reruns of CSI in the<br />

afternoons, while his nights consist of<br />

attending local government meetings<br />

where he offers the same suggestions on<br />

how to improve the town such as changing<br />

the town slogan — he feels ‘A great place to<br />

refer to as home’ is much better than ‘A<br />

great place to call home’ — and adding a<br />

crosswalk at the location where he has<br />

been ticketed for jaywalking.<br />

Milton does not have much variation in<br />

his life but all of that changes when an<br />

alien spaceship crash lands in his backyard,<br />

crushing his<br />

beloved azaleas and<br />

destroying his birdbath<br />

in the process.<br />

Like most residents<br />

Dedra<br />

Cordle<br />

would do upon seeing a spacecraft on their<br />

property, Milton calls the police but is told<br />

not to call back as they believe he is pranking<br />

them — or perhaps has advanced quickly<br />

in his memory lapses.<br />

Although he does not seem to be particularly<br />

bothered by this strange occurrence,<br />

he nonetheless asks the city council to do<br />

something about the spaceship that has<br />

yet to be removed from his garden. While<br />

that receives blank looks from the officials,<br />

fellow senior citizens Sandy and Joyce<br />

(played by Harriett Sansome Harris and<br />

Jane Curtain, respectively) admonish him<br />

for his comment as “it is hard enough to get<br />

people to take us old people seriously.”<br />

With nothing else to do about the situation,<br />

he watches and waits and eventually<br />

the body of its pilot, a pale blue, nearly featureless<br />

being awakens from the crash.<br />

Instead of feeling scared of the extraterrestrial<br />

(played perfectly by Jade Quon),<br />

Milton is drawn to its warm, understanding<br />

eyes, and treats it as if it is a cherished<br />

guest. And the being, which is later given<br />

the name Jules, soon becomes a cherished<br />

friend as it listens without judgement and<br />

sits in companionable silence with Milton<br />

as he just wants someone to be there with<br />

him.<br />

Although the story does have many<br />

light-hearted elements and quirky humor<br />

within, the movie can be quite sad as it has<br />

a focus on the sense of loneliness people,<br />

especially senior citizens, feel as their<br />

friends and family leave, move on, or move<br />

away. Had any of these main characters<br />

not been played by comedic and dramatic<br />

pros like Kingsley, Sansom Harris,<br />

Curtain and Quon, chances are “Jules”<br />

would not have worked nearly as well, or at<br />

all.<br />

But it is those performances that make<br />

this small, independent movie such a<br />

standout as they infuse their lonely characters<br />

with compassion and empathy. They<br />

really are a surprisingly great quartet and<br />

I would love to see them all do another<br />

movie together in the future.<br />

The film is, admittedly, a little quirky<br />

and offbeat but it has such a sweet charm<br />

to it that it just kinda buries its strange<br />

self right into your heart.<br />

If you get an opportunity to catch this<br />

movie, please do so. It is available right<br />

now for rent on streaming services such as<br />

Amazon Prime, On Demand, and Vudu,<br />

but it will also be available to reserve at<br />

the library soon. You might have a bit of a<br />

wait but I think it will be better than you<br />

envisioned.<br />
