WILLIAM “BILLY” MARTIN<br />

MAYOR FOR THE VILLAGE OF MT. STERLING<br />

The 2nd Annual “Bee the Change” food drive was a<br />

huge success, bringing in more than 14,000 non-perishable<br />

items for food pantries and programs around <strong>Madison</strong><br />

County. That total eclipsed last year’s collection of 4,649<br />

items.<br />

Coordinated by Mount Sterling Mayor Marci Darlington,<br />

the drive coincided with World Food Day and Make A<br />

Difference Day. As she did last year, Darlington put forth<br />

a friendly challenge to the mayors of Plain City, London,<br />

and West Jefferson to join Mount Sterling in competing to<br />

see whose town could collect the most food. Collection<br />

dates ran Oct. 15-21.<br />

Alder actors staging a four-pack of short plays<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> Editor<br />

Jonathan Alder High School’s drama department<br />

is taking a new approach to its fall<br />

stage production. Rather than present one<br />

longer play, they are presenting four shorter<br />

plays—three of which students are directing.<br />

The collection is called “Dionysia <strong>2023</strong>:<br />

Love, Loss, & Bigfoot.”<br />

The reason for the change, said Director<br />

Daniel Rodriguez Hijo, is to offer students<br />

more opportunities.<br />

“Multiple and shorter plays means more<br />

lead and focused roles to give,” he said.<br />

“Plus, it allows me to lift up student-directors<br />

and help give them the toolset and critical<br />

eye to direct their own stuff in the<br />

future.”<br />

Performances are set for 7 p.m. Nov. 9-<br />

11 and 2 p.m. Nov. 12 at the high school.<br />

Tickets are $10 and are being sold at the<br />

door and at givebutter.com/Dionysia<strong>2023</strong>.<br />

Most of the plays are world premieres from<br />

playwrights around the country.<br />

First up in the four-pack of plays is<br />

“Moon Logic,” written by David Lipschutz<br />

and directed by Jonathan Alder senior Trisha<br />

Lennex. In the play, a video game hero<br />

must beat the trials, monsters, and even the<br />

princess. That is, if she will let him.<br />

The 10-minute play is a comedy.<br />

Next is “Piece of Cake,” written by<br />

Allie Costa and directed by Jonathan<br />

Alder senior Maelee Rapalo. The storyline<br />

follows a tense small-business<br />

owner who must face her strained relationship<br />

with the Muffin Man or<br />

risk losing her employee and customers.<br />

The 10-minute play has a<br />

heartfelt vibe.<br />

The third play is “Sleeping with<br />

Cicadas,” written by Melissa Milich<br />

and directed by Jonathan Alder sophomore<br />

Derek Rodriguez. In this 10-<br />

minute farce, secrets of Appalachia<br />

run the risk of exposure when a federal<br />

agent encounters a pair of mountain<br />

men.<br />

Rodriguez Hijo is directing the<br />

final play in the series, “Cross Winds<br />

Over the Saanich Inlet” by Karen<br />

Howes. In this 30- to 40-minute<br />

drama, a remote wedding is upended<br />

when the groom is nowhere to be<br />

found. Could it be cold feet—or something<br />

better?<br />

Plain City’s food collection will be split between the Plain City<br />

Food Pantry and Hope’s Lantern, a non-profit that packs shelf-stable<br />

meals and snacks for Jonathan Alder students to take home on<br />

weekends.<br />

London collected approximately 800 items this year. Those donations<br />

will be split between HELP House Community Outreach<br />

and the <strong>Madison</strong> County Food Pantry.<br />

Mount Sterling collected 522 items and $232 in cash donations,<br />

up 43 percent over last year’s effort. Their donations are going to<br />

the food pantry at the Mount Sterling Community Center.<br />

West Jefferson collected 205 items which will go to the Good<br />

Samaritan Food Pantry.<br />

Darlington called this results “amazing” and said she hopes the<br />

county’s mayors are up for doing it again next year, even though<br />

she is not running for re-election.<br />

“I hope it carries on because I think it’s a good thing,” she said.<br />

“The mayors working together on things like this is a reflection of<br />

the cooperation we have in the county.”

therefore, a serious reason for prodding them toward self-sufficiency.<br />

In the end, Mr. Gilbreth comes to see how much Anne has<br />

grown up. And Mrs. Gilbreth sums up a key message of the play,<br />

saying: “When you’re all together, it’s the happiest time in the<br />

world.”<br />

The London High School cast is doing a great job with the story<br />

and the characters, Blanton said.<br />

“This is the fourth play Josh has been in, so he’s a veteran. It’s<br />

a stretch to play an older character. He has come a long way in trying<br />

to be the adult in the room,” he said. “For Kaelyn, this is the<br />

largest role she has had, and she has done a good job with it. She<br />

has a mature demeanor that fits well with her character.”<br />

The role of Anne requires Isabella to go through a range of emotions.<br />

“She does a great job being ecstatic, melancholy, and angry,<br />

sometimes all in one scene,” Blanton said.<br />

Senior Julie Dunkley and junior Ethan Davitt play Ernestine<br />

and Frank Jr., respectively. Their camaraderie shines through as<br />

they serve as narrators of the play, starting each act with memories<br />

that then play out on the stage.<br />

Among the other actors are seniors<br />

Jamie Davis who plays the housekeeper,<br />

Chloee King who plays no-nonsense teacher<br />

Miss Brill, and Natalie Dulin and Sara<br />

Studebaker who play two of the 12 children.<br />

Performances are set for 7 p.m. Nov. 16-<br />

18 at the high school. General admission<br />

tickets will be sold at the door: $8 for students<br />

and $10 for adults.<br />

London High School’s drama department<br />

is enjoying a good run of student interest in<br />

stage performance. Director Scott Blanton<br />

kept that in mind when choosing this year’s<br />

fall play, “Cheaper by the Dozen,” which features<br />

a cast of 19.<br />

“I wanted a play with lots of characters,”<br />

said Blanton, now in his 2<strong>5th</strong> year of directing<br />

London’s fall production.<br />

Set in the 1920s, the storyline of<br />

“Cheaper by the Dozen” revolves around<br />

Mr. and Mrs. Gilbreth and their 12 children.<br />

Mr. Gilbreth (played by senior Josh Lickliter)<br />

is an industrial engineer and efficiency<br />

expert. Mrs. Gilbreth (senior Kaelyn<br />

Thoman) is a psychologist.<br />

When Mr. Gilbreth decides to apply his<br />

unorthodox methods in efficiency to his family,<br />

the results are funny and embarrassing,<br />

yet effective. Anne (junior Isabella Kerry),<br />

the oldest child, is not impressed. She feels<br />

her father’s ways make her look ridiculous<br />

to everyone at school, especially to the boys,<br />

so she rebels.<br />

Little do she or the rest of her siblings<br />

know their father has a heart condition and,<br />

Christmas baskets in PC<br />

Plain City area churches are making<br />

plans for the annual Christmas Basket project.<br />

In 2022, baskets and gifts were distributed<br />

to 105 families which included over 750<br />

individuals, approximately 500 of whom<br />

were children.<br />

Participating churches are accepting donations<br />

to help fund gift purchases and gift<br />

cards for food this year. No food donations are<br />

accepted. To make a donation, make a check<br />

payable to “Christmas Basket Fund” and<br />

mail it to: Plain City Presbyterian Church,<br />

231 E. Main St., Plain City, OH 43064.<br />

Another way to partiipate is to adopt a<br />

family and buy their Christmas presents.<br />

Families may be “adopted” through local<br />

churches or by calling the Presbyterian<br />

Church at (614) 873-5011 or co-chairman<br />

Jim Kaufman, (937)243-1653.<br />

Guidelines are provided for purchasing<br />

gifts for appropriate age levels. Anyone who<br />

adopts a family is asked to deliver the gifts<br />

between Dec. 9 and Dec. 16.<br />

Holton family makes one last gift to school district<br />

The Performing Arts Department at London<br />

High School received a gift of $1,200<br />

from the Mary F. Holton Inspirational<br />

Teacher Gift fund. Jan Betz and Tom<br />

Holton represented the Holton family at the<br />

Oct. 10 London City Schools school board<br />

meeting with news of the decision.<br />

The gift closes a 20-year program established<br />

in 2003 by William Holton in honor<br />

of his wife, Mary F. Holton. Mary Holton<br />

was an advocate and strong supporter for<br />

London teachers. William Holton and his<br />

two brothers were London school system<br />

graduates, and their four children also graduated<br />

from London schools.<br />

William established the Mary F. Holton<br />

Inspirational Teacher Gift in 2003 after<br />

Mary passed away. Each year beginning in<br />

2005, students selected a high school<br />

teacher who “inspired a student or students<br />

to develop a desire for learning.” The Mary<br />

Holton Gift was $500 for the teacher to<br />

spend on himself or herself, not on classroom<br />

materials, but with the intention to<br />

make the person a better teacher. Recipients<br />

received a desktop or shelf memento,<br />

and their names are on a plaque in the high<br />

school display case.<br />

For the 20th year, the Holton family, including<br />

sisters Julia in Kirkland, Wash.,<br />

and Susan in Taunton, Mass., recommended<br />

to Principal Ryan Rismiller and Superintendent<br />

Lou Kramer closing the<br />

program with one final gift. In keeping with<br />

the family’s wishes, they selected the performing<br />

arts program to receive the gift.<br />

Music and theater were always part of Mary<br />

Holton’s life.<br />

With this final award, the Mary F.<br />

Holton Inspirational Gift has given approximately<br />

$10,700 to London High School<br />

teachers and now the performing arts program.<br />

EBRITE<br />

E. Michael “Mike” Ebrite, 69, of London,<br />

Ohio, died on Oct. 25, <strong>2023</strong>, in <strong>Madison</strong><br />

Health. Born on Dec. 5, 1953, in Fort Dix,<br />

New Jersey, he was a son of E. Edward<br />

Ebrite and Barbara (Becker) Ebrite.<br />

We learned so much from Mike’s life, and<br />

he was better than us in many ways. Something<br />

we always appreciated was his honesty.<br />

Mike never learned how to be false, to<br />

feign, or to lie. If Mike told you something,<br />

you knew it was exactly what he was thinking<br />

or feeling. Uncommon but admirable<br />

traits.<br />

Mike was a gift to those who knew and<br />

loved him. He was interested in everyone,<br />

remembered everyone, cared about everyone.<br />

He never met a stranger, and he was<br />

the life of the party. He could be feisty. He<br />

was also loving, a good brother, and a gentleman<br />

who always held the door for the<br />

ladies. He was a Special Olympian Gold<br />

Medalist. He had a lifelong admiration for<br />

policemen, firefighters, and pilots. He liked<br />

a sheriff’s badge, an authentic cowboy belt,<br />

and cowboy boots. Mike often amazed people<br />

with his strength and his memory about<br />

very specific things like kitchen appliances.<br />

One unforgettable thing about Mike was<br />

his unique and incredible expression of joy<br />

each time he saw someone he loved. His<br />

body would tense, he would smile, and you<br />

could see the pure joy physically vibrating<br />

as happiness spread through his entire<br />

body. It never changed, and with every<br />

meeting and his face so full of happiness,<br />

everything was good. He will be missed by<br />

us all. Mike’s essence was his joy. Joy at<br />

being with people, going to work, singing<br />

karaoke, and dancing. It was our honor to<br />

be his family and to love him.<br />

Michael is survived by: his mother, Barbara<br />

Ebrite; brother, David Ebrite; sister,<br />

Barbara Allen; and loving extended family.<br />

He was preceded in death by his father, E.<br />

Edward Ebrite.<br />

The family would like to extend a thankyou<br />

to the people of London, Ohio, and<br />

Mike’s many caregivers over the years. You<br />

have protected, accepted, and loved Mike<br />

just as he was, and he loved you.<br />

Michael will be privately interred in<br />

Kirkwood Cemetery, London.<br />

The family was served by Eberle-Fisher<br />

Funeral Home and Crematory, London.<br />

<strong>Madison</strong>-Plains: K-6 news, auditorium project<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> Editor<br />

At the Oct. 17 meeting of the <strong>Madison</strong>-<br />

Plains school board, Brad Miller and Deb<br />

Adamczak, principal and assistant principal,<br />

respectively, for grades K-6 shared<br />

highlights and activities from the start of<br />

the <strong>2023</strong>-24 school year.<br />

Miller reported on the completion of fall<br />

diagnostic testing. Based on the results,<br />

teachers categorized students into three<br />

tiers with the third tier being students who<br />

need the most intensive help. Teachers are<br />

working on ways to tailor instruction to students<br />

based on the tiers.<br />

A sixth-grade safety patrol started in October.<br />

A total of 14 students were selected to<br />

serve on the patrol—seven in the morning<br />

and seven in the afternoon at different posts.<br />

They monitor the hallways and report any<br />

safety issues to administrators or teachers.<br />

Students in all grades are working<br />

through a Seven Mindsets initiative. The<br />

theme for September was “Everything is<br />

Possible.” Students were encouraged to<br />

dream big, embrace creativity, and think<br />

positively and justly. Teachers rewarded<br />

students exhibiting these traits with a pizza<br />

party with the principal.<br />

Sixth-graders took part in the Signs Of<br />

Suicide program administered by Nationwide<br />

Children’s Hospital. The program reviewed<br />

warning signs and gave students<br />

various opportunities to talk to someone<br />

about themselves or other students. The<br />

program is required by the state.<br />

Students in grades 2-3 will perform a<br />

Christmas musical at 6 p.m. Nov. 30.<br />

Donations and recognition<br />

The board accepted a $20,000 donation<br />

from <strong>Madison</strong> Health, the second installment<br />

in a commitment the hospital made to<br />

donate $20,000 each year for five years. The<br />

money is earmarked for athletics. Eisler<br />

said the district plans to use the latest installment<br />

to purchase a new high jump pit.<br />

The current pit is decades old and reportedly<br />

held together with duct tape. Any leftover<br />

funds will be used to purchase new<br />

batting cage nets and new soccer nets.<br />

April Sparks, assistant principal at the<br />

high school and junior high, has been nominated<br />

for Assistant Principal of the Year,<br />

an honor bestowed through the Ohio Association<br />

of Secondary School Administrators.<br />

Molly Niese, who has taught biology and<br />

anatomy at <strong>Madison</strong>-Plains for nine years,<br />

was recognized for her work.<br />

Next meeting and auditorium project<br />

The next school board meeting will take<br />

place at 7 p.m. Nov. 21 in the high school library<br />

rather than in the auditorium, the<br />

board’s usual meeting spot.<br />

The auditorium is undergoing a facelift.<br />

The district expects to take delivery of new<br />

seating the second week of <strong>November</strong>. The<br />

current chairs will be removed prior to the<br />

delivery as the district has nowhere to store<br />

the new chairs. The facelift also includes<br />

new lighting, new carpet, and a new coat of<br />

paint. The work likely will mean the auditorium<br />

will be closed most of <strong>November</strong>.<br />

<strong>Madison</strong>-Plains Class of 1973 holds reunion<br />

The <strong>Madison</strong> Plains High School Class of<br />

1973 celebrated its “Golden 50th” year reunion<br />

beginning with an impromptu get-together on<br />

Sept. 8 at the Fraternal Order of Eagles in London.<br />

A morning golf outing at the Deer Creek<br />

Lodge and Conference Center golf course in<br />

Mount Sterling started the reunion festivities<br />

on Sept. 9.<br />

That evening, class members arrived at the<br />

lodge and conference center for registration<br />

and received lanyards showing their graduation<br />

picture. They enjoyed a social hour with<br />

cocktails and a D.J. providing 70’s music. Tables<br />

were adorned with sunflower centerpieces,<br />

and laminated pictures of the classmates<br />

served as placemats and keepsakes. A buffet<br />

dinner was served, along with a cake with the<br />

1973 class picture imprinted on it.<br />

A “history test” packet was distributed to attendees<br />

featuring questions centered around<br />

classmates and events representing the year<br />

1973. The winner received an inscribed trophy. In attendance at the 50th year reunion of the <strong>Madison</strong> Plains High School Class of 1973 were: (front row, from left) David Garen,<br />
