Northpoint plan<br />

in CW changes<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

A trio of Community Reinvestment Agreements bundled into<br />

one ordinance were given the green light by <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong><br />

City Council.<br />

“This would authorize the city to enter into three separate CRA<br />

agreements,” said Development Director Lucas Haire during<br />

council’s Jan. 2 meeting.<br />

The Northpoint Development project contains three buildings<br />

that previously appeared as a two building development at Rager<br />

and Bixby roads at a 15-year, 100 percent real estate abatement.<br />

In 2019, the city adopted a resolution approving the initial CRA<br />

agreements with Northpoint. In 2022, the agreements were<br />

amended.<br />

“Plans have since changed for that development,” said Haire<br />

during a Dec. 4 council work session.<br />

Today, the agreement calls for a 15-year, 75 percent real estate<br />

abatement for two 263,000 square foot buildings and one 435,000<br />

square foot building.<br />

“The developer is committing to investing $12.5 million on each<br />

of those buildings, creating 100 jobs with a total payroll of $4.5<br />

million,” said Haire. “That’s for each of those buildings.”<br />

The third building Northpoint is proposing is a $20.5 million<br />

investment generating 150 jobs with a $6.77 million payroll.<br />

Improvements to Obetz’s Lancaster<br />

Park will enhance recreation<br />

By Rick Palsgrove<br />

Managing Editor<br />

Obetz’s Lancaster Park is getting an upgrade.<br />

Lancaster Park, located at 4390 Lancaster St. in<br />

Obetz, is a four-and-a-half-acre park that currently<br />

features a shelter house, playground equipment, two<br />

Bocce ball courts, and a 60x12 foot splash pad that in<br />

the winter converts to an ice rink.<br />

The city of Obetz has a multi-phase revitalization<br />

plan to add improvements and more features to the<br />

park.<br />

“The park’s upgrades are a response to our community’s<br />

call for a more vibrant and diverse recreational<br />

environment, ensuring that our facilities<br />

“A name you know, Experience you can trust”<br />

meet both current and future needs,” said Obetz City<br />

Administrator Rod Davisson. “We are deeply committed<br />

to this project and believe that the enhancements<br />

will provide significant benefits to the residents of<br />

Obetz.”<br />

Davisson said the park is set to receive a facelift<br />

with a new game area, a play lawn, upgrades to the<br />

existing splash pad and shelter, and an expansion of<br />

parking facilities to accommodate the growing community.<br />

“In response to community interest, we are excited<br />

to announce the inclusion of several pickleball courts<br />

in the park’s design,” said Davisson.<br />

DENTURE CHECKUPS<br />

If you wear a full upper denture,<br />

does that mean that your<br />

dental problems are over in that<br />

geographic area? Not if you value<br />

your health and future comfort.<br />

Regular appointments with your<br />

dentist are as important for denture-wearers<br />

as for people with<br />

natural teeth. The mouth tissue,<br />

bony ridges and gums that support<br />

dentures are constantly undergoing<br />

changes and may<br />

impair the denture’s proper function.<br />

Even such general health ailments<br />

as vitamin deficiencies,<br />

extended illness, drug therapy,<br />

weight loss, diabetes or high<br />

blood pressure can change the<br />

Dr. Kelly<br />

way dentures fit.<br />

Ill-fitting dentures can seriously<br />

damage the mouth, causing abrasions,<br />

bruises, inflammation and<br />

rapid destruction of the supporting<br />

bone. Prolonged irritation of<br />

this kind may result in the development<br />

of tumors. It is important<br />

to have a dental checkup at least<br />

once a year to insure that your<br />

dentures are properly adjusted<br />

and that your mouth is in good<br />

health.<br />

Prepared as a public service to<br />

promote better dental health.<br />

Performing arts opportunities<br />

expand in <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong><br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Retired <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> High School<br />

teacher Todd Phillips is not one to sit on his<br />

laurels or in a rocking chair after decades<br />

spent working with students in music and<br />

theatre.<br />

Phillips is turning his time and talents to<br />

establishing the Performing Arts Collective<br />

for <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> and bringing music,<br />

theatre, and arts opportunities to the community<br />

at large.<br />

He began talking to people in spring of<br />

last year as his retirement neared and he<br />

looked for new ways to contribute to the community.<br />

“The old joke is that ‘you never retire from<br />

Performing Arts,’ said Phillips, “‘You just<br />

change venues for better hours.’”<br />

A board of directors was formed by late summer and<br />

non-profit designation paperwork initiated in<br />

September. The PAC received its 501c3 non-profit status<br />

in November and plans to start community programming<br />

this year.<br />

“I’ve been in <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> for 35 years,” said<br />

Phillips. “It’s a great community and I’ve been blessed<br />

to see it grow from a small school district in the middle<br />

of a cornfield to a significant suburban community.”<br />

However, Phillips feels performing arts opportunities<br />

outside of school have not only not kept up with<br />

the times, but they have also decreased as well.<br />

“In the late 1980s and early 1990s, there was a community<br />

choir and there was a school alumni band,”<br />

Phillips said. “Both of those programs disappeared in<br />

the early nineties. The <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> community<br />

is larger than it has ever been, but there are effectively<br />

no opportunities being offered to the community. I now<br />

have the time, the experience, and the support to work<br />

to change that.”<br />

While Phillips acknowledges the organization cannot<br />

go from zero to 60 overnight, there are short and<br />

long term goals to bring vocal and instrumental music,<br />

theater, and movement/dance programs to <strong>Canal</strong><br />

<strong>Winchester</strong> for students and adults.<br />

The first program is <strong>Winchester</strong> Voices, a community<br />

based choir for ages 16 and up starting at the end of<br />

February. The collective is also planning community<br />

Hamilton Twp. fire levy<br />

According to the minutes of the Nov. 22 Hamilton<br />

Township trustee meeting, citizens asked questions<br />

regarding the recent voter approved fire levy and the<br />

possibility of more money being generated due to property<br />

re-evaluations in the township.<br />

Trustee Chairman Chris Hann stated that the<br />

township voted to place the 1.5 mill increase on the<br />

ballot using data provided by the county auditor in<br />

July 2023, well ahead for the property re-evaluation.<br />

He said this was not an attempt to bait and switch the<br />

voters and that the trustees asked for enough money to<br />

cover increasing expenses of operating a fire department.<br />

He added that the residents of Buckstone will be<br />

paying taxes, however, the city of Obetz and Hamilton<br />

Local schools will receive most of the revenue. These<br />

properties will not be tax abated.<br />

A new performing arts organization has formed in <strong>Canal</strong><br />

<strong>Winchester</strong>.<br />

theater activities in late spring.<br />

“We’re in conversations right now with the Joint<br />

Recreation District (JRD) and Wagnalls Memorial to<br />

see how we can collaborate and bring as many programs<br />

to the community we can in a timely manner,”<br />

said Phillips. “We’ve also had conversations with the<br />

<strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> city government, the Chamber of<br />

Commerce and Destination <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong>. They<br />

are all 100 percent in support of our program goals.”<br />

As a 501c3 non-profit, the organization is funded by<br />

donations and modest participation fees when necessary.<br />

Donations can be made through the<br />

CWPerformingArts.info website. An eight-member<br />

board of directors represents all aspects of performing<br />

arts, many of whom have been in <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong><br />

their entire lives.<br />

“We will be applying for every possible grant that<br />

we can to help support and grow the programs,” said<br />

Phillips. “Individual groups (music, theater, dance)<br />

will have various locations around the community.<br />

We’re very lucky to have offers from churches and<br />

other community groups to use their spaces.”<br />

The city of Obetz has plans for significant improvements for Lancaster Park.<br />

Davisson said city officials are currently<br />

in the construction document stage, refining<br />

the detailed plans for the park’s transformation.<br />

He said the groundbreaking is<br />

anticipated in late spring, with a phased<br />

approach to construction. The first phase,<br />

encompassing the game area and pickleball<br />

courts, is targeted for completion by<br />

the 2025 summer season.<br />

“The improvements are projected to cost<br />

$2.5 million and will be financed through<br />

our capital improvement funds, demonstrating<br />

our commitment to enhancing the<br />

city's recreational facilities,” said<br />

Davisson.<br />

Lancaster Park will also undergo a<br />

name change to better reflect the identity<br />

and heritage of Obetz, according to<br />

Davisson.<br />

“The new name, which will be chosen by<br />

the city council during the construction<br />

phase, will honor the history and people<br />

who have shaped our town,” said Davisson.<br />

As part of the project, the city is partnering<br />

with the Obetz Historical Society to<br />

offer commemorative bricks.<br />

“These personalized bricks can be<br />

ordered through the society and will<br />

become a permanent feature of the park,<br />

creating a lasting legacy for our residents,”<br />

said Davisson. “Further, we’re planning a<br />

second phase which will revitalize<br />

Lancaster Avenue with new walkways,<br />

lights, and an improved road surface in<br />

future construction seasons.”<br />

Obetz Mayor Angela Kirk said the park<br />

improvements are significant for the community.<br />

“These enhancements to our park are a<br />

testament to our dedication to the wellbeing<br />

and enjoyment of our citizens,” said<br />

Kirk. “It’s an investment in our community’s<br />

future, fostering a space where fellowship<br />

and pride can flourish. As we rename<br />

the park, we are not just giving it a new<br />

identity, but also honoring the rich tapestry<br />

of Obetz’s history and the remarkable<br />

individuals who have contributed to our<br />

story.”<br />

CW Schools welcome new board members<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Two new faces joined the <strong>Canal</strong><br />

<strong>Winchester</strong> Board of Education in <strong>2024</strong>,<br />

but not before outgoing members Matt<br />

Krueger and Kevin Butler were lauded by<br />

Superintendent Kiya Hunt for their service<br />

during the last meeting in December.<br />

Krueger was elected to the board in<br />

2011. During his three-term tenure, he<br />

served as president and vice president.<br />

Butler served two terms as a board member<br />

and was first elected in 2015. He is also<br />

a past president.<br />

“The commitment and leadership of Mr.<br />

Krueger and Mr. Butler have been invaluable,”<br />

said Hunt during the Dec. 18 board<br />

meeting. “They both served as board members<br />

during significant milestones, including<br />

navigating the challenges of the<br />

COVID 19 pandemic. Their tenure on the<br />

board was marked by numerous achievements,<br />

but one of the most notable is the<br />

approval of the Indian Trail addition. This<br />

project is a testament to the foresight and<br />

Hunt said thanks to the efforts of both<br />

board members, starting this fall, all day<br />

Hunt called the program a monumental<br />

step in enhancing the district’s educational<br />

offerings and demonstrates an unwavering<br />

commitment to the growth and development<br />

of <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong>’s youngest<br />

learners.<br />

“Know that your contributions have left<br />

Hunt. “The time, energy and passion<br />

reported revenues are trending where they<br />

were projected for fiscal year <strong>2024</strong>, which<br />

started on July 1, 2023.<br />

“Income taxes are a little down compared<br />

to last year, but I think last year was<br />

kind of higher than I think we have seen,”<br />

said Roberts. In 2021, 2022 and 2023 we<br />

were still up of all those years. 2023 just<br />

happened to be a high. Most of the schools<br />

are seeing a higher trend, so it’s not just us.<br />

State revenue in the biennial budget really<br />

paid dividends for the district when that<br />

was updated last month.”<br />

According to Roberts, at this time in the<br />

fiscal year, expenditures should be at 42<br />

percent and the district is at 41 percent.<br />

“Salaries and benefits drive most of our<br />

expenditures,” said Roberts.<br />

Fiscal year <strong>2024</strong> actual year-to-date revenue<br />

is $24.6 million, with income tax<br />

accounting for $3.6 million, real estate $7.9<br />

million and unrestricted state grants<br />

bringing in $8.4 million.<br />

Year-to-date expenditures total $19.9<br />

million, with $11.2 million covering personnel<br />

services and $11.2 million for retirement<br />

and insurance benefits.<br />

Hamilton <strong>2024</strong> graduation<br />

to be at World Harvest<br />

After multiple surveys completed by<br />

Hamilton Township High School’s senior<br />

class, this school year’s graduation commencement<br />

ceremony for the Class of <strong>2024</strong><br />

will be held at World Harvest Church<br />

located at 4595 Gender Road in <strong>Canal</strong><br />

<strong>Winchester</strong>.<br />

The graduation ceremony will be held<br />

May 21 at 7 p.m.<br />

Four the past four years commencement<br />

was held at Fortress Obetz.<br />

According to Hamilton Local Schools<br />

officials, one of the primary reasons for the<br />

change is to eliminate the stress and<br />

uncertainty caused by weather-related<br />

reschedules. By moving the event indoors<br />

the ceremony can be held rain or shine.<br />

Holding the commencement at World<br />

Harvest Church provides time for families<br />

to plan, make necessary arrangements,<br />

and ensure that no one misses this significant<br />

event in the lives of our graduates.<br />

Stamp and receive a service contract of<br />

$4,000.<br />

Sales of the Ohio Wetlands Habitat<br />

Stamp have produced more than $11 million<br />

for wetland habitat protection and<br />

conservation. Proceeds fund vital wetland<br />

projects in Ohio which are important<br />

to many resident and migratory<br />

waterfowl species, other wetland birds,<br />

and amphibians.<br />

Ohio is one of the few states that still<br />

features hand-painted artwork on the<br />

state wetlands stamp.<br />

Artists can choose to depict any of<br />

Ohio’s native waterfowl species other<br />

than American wigeon, canvasbacks, or<br />

lesser scaup, which were featured on the<br />

previous three stamps. All artists ages 18<br />

and older who reside in the United States<br />

are encouraged to enter the competition.<br />

Artwork will be judged on Feb. 17 by a<br />

panel of five judges with a conservation<br />

background.<br />

The winning entry will feature a qualifying<br />

species of Ohio waterfowl. The<br />

design may not exceed 18 inches wide by<br />

13 inches high, should be displayed on a<br />

single white mat of 2½ inches width, and<br />

be protected by a removable acetate or<br />

cellophane cover. All two-dimensional art<br />

mediums other than digital art and photographs<br />

are accepted.<br />

Hunters aged 18 and older are<br />

required to purchase an Ohio Wetlands<br />

Habitat Stamp to hunt waterfowl or<br />

migratory birds in Ohio, and many<br />

Welcome Home Ohio<br />

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, Lt.<br />

Governor Jon Husted, and Ohio<br />

Department of Development Director<br />

Lydia Mihalik released official program<br />

guidelines for the new $150 million<br />

Welcome Home Ohio program, which was<br />

developed to improve access to affordable<br />

housing across the state.<br />

“Housing needs are present all across<br />

Ohio,” said DeWine. “Through this program,<br />

we have the opportunity to support<br />

new investments in housing construction<br />

that will help cultivate vibrant neighborhoods<br />

and stimulate economic vitality.”<br />

The program will provide $100 million<br />

in grants over the course of the biennium<br />

for landbanks to purchase, rehabilitate, or<br />

build qualifying residential properties for<br />

income-eligible Ohioans. Additionally, $50<br />

million in nonrefundable tax credits will be<br />

made available to landbanks and eligible<br />

developers over the biennium for qualifying<br />

rehabs and new construction once a<br />

property is sold.<br />

“By ensuring all current and future<br />

Ohioans have access to affordable housing,<br />

we are not only meeting the basic needs of<br />

our residents but also laying the foundation<br />

for sustainable economic development,”<br />

said Husted. “As companies continue<br />

to invest in Ohio, we will need the housing<br />

stock to support that growth and prepare<br />

our communities for the opportunities<br />

those businesses bring.”<br />

The Welcome Home Ohio program was<br />

created in partnership with the Ohio<br />

General Assembly in the biennium budget<br />

bill, House Bill 33. The Ohio Department of<br />

Development will administer the program<br />

and will begin accepting applications for<br />

both the grants and tax credit on Jan 9,<br />

<strong>2024</strong>.<br />

“Ensuring Ohioans have a home they<br />

can afford brings our families stability and<br />

allows them to have a place where they can<br />

stay healthy, raise their children, continue<br />

working, and live their best lives,” said<br />

Mihalik. “Our ultimate goal is to increase<br />

the affordable housing stock across Ohio so<br />

that more residents can realize the dream<br />

of home ownership.”<br />

The application period for the grants<br />

will close on Feb. 9, <strong>2024</strong>, with rolling<br />

applications accepted from Feb. 12 to May<br />

31, as funds are available. Tax credit applications<br />

will be accepted on a rolling basis<br />

until funds are expended.<br />

Program information and full guidelines<br />

can be found at development.ohio.gov/community/redevelopment/welcomehome.<br />

Heating assistance<br />

With the chill of winter fast approaching,<br />

the state of Ohio wants to ensure its<br />

residents stay warm and comfortable in the<br />

colder months by helping alleviate the burden<br />

of costly energy bills.<br />

Through March 31, <strong>2024</strong>, income-eligible<br />

Ohioans can receive one-time assistance<br />

with their home energy bill through<br />

the Ohio Department of Development’s<br />

Home Energy Assistance Winter Crisis<br />

Program.<br />

The Winter Crisis Program assists<br />

Ohioans facing service disconnection, have<br />

been disconnected, need to establish new<br />

service, need to pay to transfer service,<br />

have a Percentage of Income Payment Plan<br />

(PIPP) default, need to make their first<br />

PIPP payment, or have 25 percent or less<br />

supply of bulk fuel in their tank to maintain<br />

service. Qualifying households must<br />

have a gross annual income of at or below<br />

175 percent of the federal poverty level. For<br />

a family of four, that is up to $52,500.<br />

Last year, the Winter Crisis Program<br />

assisted more than 67,000 households in<br />

Ohio, providing a total of $19 million in<br />

benefits.<br />

“A warm and comfortable home should<br />

not be a luxury only some people can<br />

afford,” said Lydia Mihalik, director of the<br />

Department of Development. “This program<br />

does more than just provide financial<br />

assistance; it shows some of our most-vulnerable<br />

residents that we’re here to lend a<br />

helping hand when they need it most.”<br />

Households serviced by a Public<br />

Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO)-regulated<br />

utility must sign up for PIPP or<br />

another payment plan if there is still an<br />

outstanding balance on the utility bill after<br />

receiving assistance.<br />

Ohioans can start their application<br />

online but will need to schedule an appointment<br />

with their local energy assistance<br />

provider to complete the application.<br />

Depending on the agency, the appointment<br />

may be in person, on the phone, or virtual.<br />

The application and list of providers can be<br />

www.columbusmessenger.com<br />

found online at energyhelp.ohio.gov.<br />

Citizens can also call 800-282-0880 to find<br />

their local provider. Hearing impaired customers<br />

may dial 711 for assistance.<br />

Clients need to bring copies of the following<br />

documents to their appointment:<br />

•Copies of most-recent energy bills.<br />

•A list of all household members and<br />

proof of income for the last 30 days or 12<br />

months for each member.<br />

•Proof of U.S. citizenship or legal residency<br />

for all household members.<br />

•Proof of disability, if applicable.<br />

Capital<br />

Budget<br />

Update<br />

In a previous communication with you, I outlined<br />

the capital budget process. As you may recall, the<br />

capital budget encompasses construction projects<br />

funded, at least in part, with public dollars and is<br />

passed in even-numbered years. For this biennium,<br />

it will total about $4 billion and will include a onetime<br />

supplement of $700 million, which was inserted<br />

as a result of a surplus in tax revenues during<br />

the operating budget process last year.<br />

Most of the construction projects are determined<br />

by various state entities and public universities<br />

based on budget amounts in previous two-year<br />

budgets. About $180 million are allocated for community<br />

projects around the state. This will be supplemented<br />

by the one-time $700 million referenced<br />

above. Franklin County’s share of this $880 million<br />

will total about $90 million.<br />

I have been meeting with folks representing projects<br />

asking for the state to fund a portion of them.<br />

In addition, I have conferred with the state representatives<br />

from the other Franklin County house<br />

districts in an attempt to gain consensus on the relative<br />

worthiness of larger projects for the greater<br />

Columbus community. Our work has been aided<br />

greatly by the Columbus Partnership, the chief economic<br />

development group for Central Ohio, which<br />

has collected and vetted over 100 capital budget request<br />

submissions.<br />

As of now, we are looking to focus the bulk of our<br />

available funding to assist with up to five large Central<br />

Ohio projects. These include the Ohio Center<br />

for Advanced Technologies, a workforce development<br />

center to be located on the Columbus State<br />

Community College campus, the Columbus Symphony’s<br />

new concert hall and learning center, the<br />

new John Glenn International Airport terminal project,<br />

a Columbus Downtown development project,<br />

and the modernization of Nationwide Arena. Some<br />

resources will be allocated to fund a portion of<br />

some medium-sized projects for non-profit, social<br />

service-oriented entities such as Maryhaven, Buckeye<br />

Ranch, the Mid-Ohio Food Bank, and the PAST<br />

Foundation for mathematics and science education.<br />

Finally, some funds may get allocated to smaller<br />

local community projects such as playground<br />

equipment for the Grove City Town Center Park,<br />

Green Lawn Cemetery restoration, and the Heinzerling<br />

Community’s roof replacement and HVAC modernization<br />

projects.<br />

We are submitting our lists of priority projects this<br />

week. They will be reviewed by the House Finance<br />

Committee. Its recommendations will be voted on<br />

by the entire House later this spring. The Senate will<br />

utilize a similar process after we finish. We anticipate<br />

an approved capital budget by early summer.<br />

Christmases of our youth and of people no<br />

Christmas season and put the tugs of the<br />

world aside for a brief time.<br />

Sometimes it feels like the two “Eves” -<br />

Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve - are holidays<br />

unto themselves, though they both<br />

have elements of anticipation, they can be<br />

very different from each other. Christmas<br />

Eve can be a peaceful time, a spiritual time,<br />

a reflective time. New Year’s Eve for some is<br />

a boisterous celebratory night; however, for<br />

back before turning one’s focus ahead to the<br />

new year.<br />

When <strong>January</strong> dawns, it grabs us, shakes<br />

us from our holiday reverie, and proclaims<br />

it’s time to start anew. We put away the<br />

season and it will bring another again.<br />

In <strong>January</strong>, it’s a new year and a new calendar<br />

with new memories to be made. It’s a<br />

time of recreating oneself. A time of taking<br />

stock. Winter begins in earnest and we know<br />

there’s a long road of cold, ice, and snow to<br />

travel until spring warmly caresses us once<br />

again.<br />

Winter is worthy of being embraced. It<br />

offers walks in the woods where the seeming<br />

silence is actually a beautiful symphony of<br />

wind rustling sleeping trees and bushes,<br />

songs of hearty birds who remain with us in<br />

the cold, and the chatter of squirrels. It’s a<br />

time of reflection, a time of garden plans, a<br />

time of personal growth.<br />

<strong>January</strong> 14, <strong>2024</strong> - SOUTH & CANAL WINCHESTER MESSENGER - PAGE 9<br />

This film is worth wrestling with<br />

& CANAL WINCHESTER MESSENGER - PAGE 9<br />

Founded in 2012 by three movie producers,<br />

A24 has garnered a reputation as an<br />

independent entertainment company that<br />

rarely has a misstep.<br />

Dedra<br />

Cordle<br />

The Reel Deal<br />

It has altered the<br />

landscape of the horror<br />

genre by funding psychological<br />

thrillers<br />

such as “Hereditary,”<br />

“Midsommar,” and<br />

“The Witch;” and distributed<br />

some of the<br />

buzziest television<br />

shows lately with<br />

“Beef” on Netflix and<br />

“Euphoria” on HBO.<br />

The company has disrupted the upper<br />

crust of the academy by believing that an<br />

off-the-wall comedy lik,e “Everything<br />

Everywhere All at Once” could have an<br />

impact on an industry that takes itself too<br />

seriously.<br />

A24’s latest film is “The Iron Claw.”<br />

When entertainment companies believe<br />

they have something special on their<br />

hands, they present the film for international<br />

audiences and professional critics at<br />

fall festivals.<br />

If the movie generates a positive amount<br />

of buzz, it can propel that film to the top of<br />

must-see lists for the remainder of the year<br />

or even the upcoming year.<br />

Additionally, that strong word-of-mouth<br />

can have an impact at the domestic and<br />

global box office and can even help a movie<br />

or a performance in that movie snag a nomination<br />

or a statue at major industry<br />

events.<br />

I am not certain who at A24 was tasked<br />

with determining whether “The Iron<br />

Claw,” a film centered around a famed but<br />

tragic American wrestling family, was worthy<br />

of a fall festival run, but their decision<br />

to withhold this quietly devastating movie<br />

from the circuit was absolutely moronic.<br />

Perhaps it was because it is a movie<br />

about wrestling, perhaps it was because<br />

the star of the film — who gives the performance<br />

of his career — was a former<br />

teenage heartthrob, or perhaps it was<br />

because they were too busy making the<br />

switch from independent entertainment<br />

company to a commercial conglomerate.<br />

But whatever the circumstances were that<br />

led to this film not being presented at the<br />

festivals where it could receive the appropriate<br />

amount of buzz it deserves should be<br />

considered a criminal offense.<br />

I feel it is my duty to do what the individual<br />

at A24 would not do and wholeheartedly<br />

throw my support behind “The<br />

Iron Claw.”<br />

Although the subject matter, which<br />

touches upon mental health issues, suicidal<br />

ideation and toxic masculinity, makes it a<br />

difficult watch, the love the siblings in this<br />

family have for each other and the warmth<br />

the actors exude portraying their real-life<br />

counterparts make that difficult watch<br />

worthwhile.<br />

Like any good wrestling match, the film<br />

opens by introducing the audience to an<br />

antagonist, a hulking figure named Fritz<br />

Von Erich (ferociously played by Holt<br />

McCallany).<br />

Wearing little more than trunks and a<br />

snarl, he taunts the spectators who have<br />

come out to cheer on his good guy foe as he<br />

prepares to deliver his signature move to<br />

incapacitate his opponent — a crushing<br />

claw hold to the head, followed by a back<br />

slam to the unforgiving mat.<br />

It is a maneuver that has made Fritz<br />

Von Erich (a.k.a. Jack Adkisson in his outof-ring<br />

life) famous and feared and it serves<br />

as a metaphor for the iron grip he has on<br />

his family.<br />

As a professional wrestler in the<br />

National Wrestling Alliance, Fritz had<br />

middling success and never won a world<br />

heavyweight belt, a decision that he<br />

believed was due to his cantankerous<br />

nature outside of the ring.<br />

The fact that he was never promoted to<br />

champion status rankled him so thoroughly<br />

that he has made acquiring it via his<br />

sons his mission in life.<br />

In turn, second eldest son Kevin (Zac<br />

Efron), third eldest son David (Harris<br />

Dickinson), fourth eldest son Kerry<br />

(Jeremy Allen White), and the “baby” son<br />

Mike (Stanley Simmons) have made it<br />

their mission to appease their father.<br />

(Important note: eldest son Jack Jr. died as<br />

a child and the sixth and last son, Chris,<br />

was omitted by writer/director Sean<br />

Durkin as he believed it would have been<br />

“too much” for the audience to handle<br />

another tragic death.)<br />

Since childhood, the boys have dreamed<br />

of following in the footsteps of the legendary<br />

Fritz Von Erich, spending almost<br />

all of their time outside of school and the<br />

family farm pumping iron, working on<br />

moves, and performing in the wrestling<br />

league founded by their father in Dallas.<br />

Although they often jockey for the patriarch’s<br />

favor, the siblings care for, love, and<br />

support each other — even when Fritz<br />

decides that wrestling star Kevin will take<br />

a back seat to his more charismatic brothers,<br />

David and Kerry.<br />

As Kevin is the only surviving Von Erich<br />

brother — all of his younger siblings died in<br />

their early 20s and 30s due to sudden<br />

health issues (David) and by suicide (Chris,<br />

Kerry and Mike) — writer/director Sean<br />

Durkin makes him the focal point of the<br />

film and the vehicle in which the audience<br />

experiences the tragic downfall of this family.<br />

It is a decision that largely works<br />

because of how extraordinary Efron is in<br />

this role.<br />

Efron, who has a naturally lean build<br />

that is capable of putting on muscle, completely<br />

transformed his body for “The Iron<br />

Claw.” He put 15 pounds of muscle on his<br />

frame and even allowed his luxurious locks<br />

to be cut into a bowl-shaped nightmare.<br />

But primary to that is his transformative<br />

performance as Kevin, playing him with a<br />

discombobulating mix of beefiness and vulnerability.<br />

Knowing what we do about the Von<br />

Erich family, it hits the heart hard early in<br />

the film when Kevin is out on a date and he<br />

tells his future wife that all he wants to do<br />

with his life is to be with his brothers.<br />

And later, when all of them are gone, it<br />

hits even harder when he realizes he is all<br />

alone.<br />

It is hard not to become an emotional<br />

mess while watching “The Iron Claw,”<br />

which is comprised of more tender<br />

moments than body slams.<br />

It’s difficult not to want to pop through<br />

that screen and fight Fritz Von Erich, who<br />

would have been better served if he had<br />

recognized the true talents of his sons and<br />

not pushed them into the ring;.<br />

It’s difficult not to want to pop through<br />

that screen and knock away the needles<br />

that are in the hands of David and Kerry as<br />

it causes addiction and death later.<br />

It’s difficult not to want to pop through<br />

that screen and give Kevin a big hug as he<br />

cries for all the trauma and tragedy that<br />

his beloved family has endured.<br />

Instead, all we can do is sit and watch as<br />

this wonderfully difficult film plays out.<br />

And then we can go sob in our cars for a<br />

good while afterward. Or maybe that was<br />

just me?<br />
