SOUPer Bowl helps out<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

<strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> Human Services’<br />

largest and only operational cost<br />

fundraiser for the year brings a little bit<br />

of football, food, fun, and philanthropy<br />

together through the efforts of dozens of<br />

volunteers and staff members.<br />

The 13th annual SOUPer Bowl takes<br />

place on Feb. 11, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at<br />

the Human Services building, 80<br />

Covenant Way in <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong>. The<br />

event provides an opportunity for people<br />

to feed their hunger and help the organization<br />

keep its doors open.<br />

“These funds are what are used to keep<br />

us in our building so that we can continue<br />

to serve the community,” said Director<br />

Aletha Mullins. “Attendees can come and<br />

enjoy a variety of free homemade soups<br />

and dessert. With a donation of $10 you<br />

can take home a ceramic bowl made by<br />

the <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> High School art<br />

students.”<br />

A “half time” bake sale is also available<br />

to take home goodies or enjoy them during<br />

the SOUPer Bowl, along with tables<br />

lined with silent auction baskets and individual<br />

items up for bidding.<br />

Planning for the event starts in<br />

December with each Human Services<br />

staff member responsible for a specific<br />

task.<br />

“Collectively, we all go out and seek<br />

auction items and bakers,” said Mullins.<br />

“Our board is involved as well, whether it<br />

is baking goodies, making soup, or putting<br />

together silent auction items. They<br />

are also gracious enough to tear down<br />

after as well.”<br />

Bringing the SOUPer Bowl to fruition<br />

is a true community event, with city council<br />

members, several groups, businesses<br />

and volunteers pitching in alongside<br />

Human Services staff and board members<br />

working behind the scenes and during the<br />

event.<br />

“A group from Cactus Salon has been<br />

with us for a couple of years to help serve<br />

soup,” said Mullins. “There are also several<br />

volunteers throughout the community<br />

Property tax blues<br />

Franklin County’s increase in property valuations last year<br />

have impacted the property tax bills property owners received in<br />

<strong>January</strong>. A reader recently called the <strong>Messenger</strong> newspaper after<br />

receiving their property tax bill and lamented, “Property taxes are<br />

ridiculously high and it’s seriously going to drive people out of<br />

their homes.”<br />

If slightly raised, creamy white<br />

sore patches develop in your<br />

mouth or on your tongue, you may<br />

have oral thrush. The patches may<br />

be brushed off when you clean your<br />

teeth. Brushing may make them<br />

sore and they may bleed slightly.<br />

The infection can spread to the roof<br />

of your mouth, to your gums or tonsils,<br />

or into your throat.<br />

Oral thrush tends to occur most<br />

often when your natural resistance<br />

to disease has been weakened by<br />

illness or as a reaction to medication<br />

such as, antibiotics, immunosuppressive<br />

drugs, or corticosteroid<br />

drugs. Many people experience an<br />

outbreak of oral thrush at some<br />

Dr. Kelly<br />

point in their lives. The infection is<br />

most common among babies and<br />

young children and the elderly, although<br />

it can occur at any time in<br />

life. Oral thrush can be painful, but<br />

ordinarily it is not a serious disorder.<br />

Your dentist may prescribe a course<br />

of oral antifungal medication, often<br />

to be taken for 7-10 days. Naturally,<br />

any underlying disorder must be<br />

treated as well.<br />

CW State of the City discussed<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

On the job for only two weeks, <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong><br />

Mayor Joe Steager held his first State of the City<br />

address, along with City Administrator Matt Peoples,<br />

at a Chamber of Commerce Jan. 17 luncheon.<br />

Steager currently splits his time with the city and<br />

Heiberger Paving as the company’s vice president secretary.<br />

Peoples’ career in public works started in <strong>Canal</strong><br />

<strong>Winchester</strong> in 1994 as a water/wastewater operator.<br />

“Matt will be running the day-to-day operations,”<br />

Steager said, before telling luncheon attendees his<br />

focus is on security and that he wants to work more<br />

closely with Madison Township.<br />

“Lucas Haire and the development department<br />

have done a good job of bringing development into the<br />

city,” continued Steager. “One of the keys now is following<br />

the city plan. Following this plan is crucial to<br />

development.”<br />

<strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> City Council approved the city’s<br />

new comprehensive plan late last year after an 18-<br />

month period of study, research, and community input.<br />

Peoples reported on the financial status of the city<br />

over the last 12 months, calling it a good year from a<br />

financially. Income tax revenue was up $12.1 million,<br />

representing a seven percent increase over 2022.<br />

The city’s bed tax was up 48 percent over the previous<br />

year and exceeded $636,000. Over $2.7 million in<br />

debt was paid down as well and the 2023 general fund<br />

budget was $16 million, the largest in the city’s history.<br />

“This building (municipal complex) and McGill Park<br />

will be paid off this year,” said Peoples.<br />

In discussing the comprehensive plan, Steager said<br />

the document indicates residents value a city with<br />

community charm, value their neighbors, and value a<br />

community ecology.<br />

“These values form the decision-making process,”<br />

said Steager. “It’s been well thought out where to put<br />

SOUPer BOWL<br />

that will come to help carry trays for the elderly that<br />

attend, clean, take the trash out, and work the bake<br />

sale or auction. You can normally find members of the<br />

Lions Club serving cake and crackers to everyone as<br />

well. Several members of local churches get together to<br />

make soup. <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> Middle School art students<br />

make banners and posters for us to display and<br />

Indian Trail art students color and design the placemats<br />

for everyone to enjoy while they eat their soup.”<br />

According to Mullins, several local businesses provide<br />

baskets filled with items for the silent auction, as<br />

well as local artists and residents. Wendy’s donates<br />

bowls and crackers, O’Neil tents provides tables and<br />

chairs as a donation, and Joe Dirt assembles the silent<br />

auction area.<br />

“There are so many people involved in making this<br />

day happen and we are so very thankful to have their<br />

support and help,” Mullins said. “We certainly could<br />

not do it without everyone’s help. <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong><br />

Human Services is certainly blessed.”<br />

Tax preparation for seniors<br />

AARP Tax-Aide volunteers will offer free tax preparation<br />

services to seniors at the <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong><br />

Community Center, 45 E. Waterloo St., beginning Feb.<br />

1. Appointments are required. To make an appointment,<br />

call 614-375-2167. Appointments cannot be<br />

made by calling or visiting the Community Center.<br />

things in our community. It serves as a guide for the<br />

community for the next 10 to 20 years. It has our vision<br />

and values in the comprehensive plan.”<br />

Peoples said regarding work at McGill Park, an<br />

$850,000 three-season shelter house is under construction<br />

and a pre-construction meeting for pickleball<br />

courts was scheduled for the following day. New soccer<br />

fields were available for play in 2023 and a pair of<br />

baseball fields were constructed.<br />

The sixth phase of Gender Road improvements<br />

focus on pedestrian safety with construction of a $3.7<br />

million pedestrian walkway that begins this summer.<br />

The city received a $2 million grant for the project.<br />

A roundabout is planned to ease congestion along<br />

<strong>Winchester</strong> Boulevard. Peoples said construction is<br />

expected to begin in spring 2025. The streets in downtown<br />

<strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> will get a massive facelift,<br />

including a dedicated crosswalk from Stradley Place to<br />

Shades Restaurant.<br />

“We’re doing these public investments to compliment<br />

the private investments,” said Peoples.<br />

Steager said a building at 20 S. High St. was purchased<br />

by the city to improve the streetscape and safety.<br />

City employees gutted the interior of the former<br />

medical office.<br />

“The end result will be a Johnson’s Ice Cream,” said<br />

Steager. “The <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> location should be<br />

opening this June. It’s a great family amenity to our<br />

downtown. The former Chase Bank is being restored to<br />

it’s original (frontage), Fantasy Cupcake will be<br />

replaced by Coffee on High, and Columbus<br />

Metropolitan Library is building a branch on<br />

Groveport Road.”<br />

Steager said construction on the new library branch<br />

starts this year and will open in 2025.<br />

“Overall, 2023 was a year of planning,” said<br />

Steager. “I’m looking forward to <strong>2024</strong> as a year of planning.”<br />

For the last five years–from 2019 to 2023–the<br />

SOUPer Bowl raised $65,532. Last year alone, the<br />

event raised $12,222. The goal this year is $15,000.<br />

“One definition of the word community is a feeling<br />

of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common<br />

attitudes, interests and goals,” said Mullins.<br />

“That definition explains the entire goal of our annual<br />

SOUPer Bowl fundraising event. Inviting our community<br />

into our facility allows them to see what we do,<br />

what programs we offer, meet our staff, and board<br />

members, and possibly find a new way to become a<br />

part of <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> Human Services. I am personally<br />

always filled with gratitude to our community<br />

for their support and generosity in making this event<br />

so successful.”<br />

Overflow parking is available at David Evangelical<br />

Lutheran Church and at David’s Way/<strong>Canal</strong> Village.<br />

Volunteers from Lithopolis United Methodist will be<br />

New concept for McGill Park<br />

Also, public hearing set<br />

for new library branch<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Growing interest in other sports and a<br />

shocking price tag forced <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong><br />

back to the drawing table in designing<br />

another phase of the city’s McGill Park.<br />

“The last time we presented this (concept<br />

plan) was in late 2022 or early 2023,”<br />

said <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> Administrator Matt<br />

Peoples during <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> City<br />

Council’s Jan. 17 meeting.<br />

The plan included three baseball fields,<br />

a concession stand with restrooms, shelter<br />

house, playground, play area and parking<br />

areas and the cost was $6 million.<br />

“It was sticker shock,” said Peoples. “We<br />

came up with another concept.”<br />

The new concept involves fewer baseball<br />

fields and more multi-purpose fields that<br />

can accommodate football, lacrosse, and<br />

soccer, even in open areas for smaller fields<br />

for younger players.<br />

According to Peoples, the new concept<br />

design takes the cost down to approximately<br />

$3.7 million and provides more flexibility.<br />

Development Director Lucas Haire said<br />

the city applied for $1.5 million in state<br />

capital grant funding–designated for public<br />

purposes–for the McGill Park project.<br />

New library public hearing<br />

A public hearing is set for Feb. 20 at<br />

5:30 p.m. for a trio of appeals by a resident<br />

regarding the site setback variance, site<br />

plan, and conditional use requests regarding<br />

the construction of the Columbus<br />

Metropolitan Library’s proposed new<br />

Groveport Road branch.<br />

The city requires a 150 foot setback<br />

between a public use building and a residentially<br />

zoned parcel. The library proposed<br />

a 73.3 foot setback on the west side<br />

of the building and 136.9 feet on the east<br />

side.<br />

While staff recommended approval of<br />

the request as presented during a Dec. 11<br />

Planning and Zoning Commission meeting,<br />

the variance request was turned down by<br />

the commission. The library asked for<br />

Township Police report<br />

According to the Madison Township<br />

Police, during December officers responded<br />

to 272 dispatched calls and logged 14,224<br />

patrol miles.<br />

Officers impounded 27 vehicles and<br />

used 1,519 gallons of fuel.<br />

In addition, 16 OVI arrests were made:<br />

two in the unincorporated areas north of<br />

U.S. Route 33, nine in Blacklick Estates,<br />

three in the Marwick Addition, one in the<br />

unincorporated areas south of U.S. Route<br />

33, and one in areas outside of Madison<br />

Township limits.<br />

Madison Township officers arrested 63<br />

impaired drivers in 2023. Other additional<br />

approval of a conditional use request and a<br />

site development plan in December, both of<br />

which were tabled by the commission until<br />

their <strong>January</strong> meeting. All three requests<br />

were approved during the commission’s<br />

Jan. 8 meeting.<br />

The property is currently zoned low<br />

density residential.<br />

In an open letter to the community<br />

issued prior to the <strong>January</strong> P&Z meeting,<br />

CML CEO Patrick Losinski, trustees board<br />

President Catherine Strauss, and Vice<br />

President Tom Katzenmeyer noted the<br />

city’s recently approved Community Plan<br />

includes a reference to a stand alone<br />

library.<br />

“While we are pleased that the city considers<br />

the library an important part of its<br />

future, these plans were developed without<br />

any CML input or knowledge of the process<br />

and includes a description and image of<br />

our 21-year-old New Albany Branch,”<br />

according to the letter.<br />

Final plans for the 30,000 square foot<br />

<strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> branch, according to<br />

CML, feature a modern architectural style<br />

with clear glazing and metal architectural<br />

panels along the façade.<br />

In a P&Z December meeting summary,<br />

the tiered flat roof, angular wall sections,<br />

and projecting metal louvers were<br />

described as breaking up the façade. The<br />

report also noted the building, as designed,<br />

as “atypical” for the area.<br />

In their letter, the trio cautioned “CML<br />

faces significant escalation costs in this<br />

challenging construction environment<br />

(with each delay). If we cannot move forward,<br />

while our commitment to <strong>Canal</strong><br />

<strong>Winchester</strong> remains, we may need to defer<br />

this project until our next building cycle<br />

and apply these resources to other pressing<br />

capital needs within the CML system.”<br />

During the Jan. 17 council work session,<br />

Construction Services Director Bill Sims<br />

said the city will extend sidewalks to the<br />

library intersection, but not curbs.<br />

“The addition of curbs creates drainage<br />

issues,” said Sims, who said curb construction<br />

necessitates a certain amount of grading<br />

and raising or lowering the road. “I<br />

don’t see curbs at this point. I don’t recollect<br />

that amount of improvements on<br />

Groveport Road in the near future at all.”<br />

annual highlights include 327 vehicles<br />

impounded, 18,189 total gallons of fuel<br />

used while driving 190,431 miles on patrol,<br />

and 885 traffic citations issued.<br />

Obetz Police news<br />

Obetz Police Chief Mike Confer, in his<br />

December report to Obetz City Council,<br />

stated a speed box was installed on<br />

Greenup Drive and it recorded speeds for<br />

880 vehicles. The highest speed was 29<br />

mph.<br />

The speed box was then placed on<br />

Lauren Fields Drive and it recorded 2,311<br />

vehicles of which there were 13 speeders.<br />

CW man convicted<br />

A federal jury has convicted Thomas O.<br />

Crowell, 35, of <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong>, with<br />

narcotics, firearms and fraud crimes.<br />

The verdict was announced following a<br />

trial that began on Jan. 8 before U.S.<br />

District Judge Michael H. Watson.<br />

According to court documents and trial<br />

testimony, Crowell, who is also known as<br />

“T-Mack,” possessed with the intent to distribute<br />

fentanyl, cocaine, and marijuana in<br />

June 2021. He illegally possessed firearms<br />

at the time, namely, a rifle and a Glock.<br />

Crowell is a previously convicted felon and<br />

prohibited from possessing firearms and<br />

ammunition.<br />

Crowell was also convicted of wire fraud<br />

for fraudulently obtaining COVID-relief<br />

Paycheck Protection Program funding by<br />

falsely claiming to own a trucking business<br />

called “Thomas Crowell.” In April<br />

2021, Crowell applied for the PPP loan and<br />

received nearly $20,000.<br />

Possessing with intent to distribute 40<br />

grams or more of fentanyl, cocaine and<br />

marijuana carries a potential punishment<br />

of at least five years and up to life in<br />

prison. Illegally possessing a firearm as a<br />

convicted felon is punishable by up to 10<br />

years in prison, and wire fraud is punishable<br />

by up to 20 years in prison.<br />

Congress sets the minimum and maximum<br />

statutory sentences. Sentencing of<br />

the defendant will be determined by the<br />

Court based on the advisory sentencing<br />

guidelines and other statutory factors.<br />

The Eastland-Fairfield Basic Police Officer Training Program recently received<br />

three retired police cruisers as a donation from the Pickaway County Sheriff’s<br />

Office.<br />

program gets three cruisers<br />

The cadets of the Basic Police Officer<br />

Training program at Eastland-Fairfield<br />

Career & Technical Schools will have<br />

their experience enhanced after receiving<br />

three retired cruisers to add to its<br />

fleet of vehicles.<br />

The cruisers, one sport utility vehicle<br />

and two sedans, were donated by Chief<br />

Deputy James Brown, Jr. and the<br />

Pickaway County Sheriff’s Office in<br />

December.<br />

“We are grateful for the donations<br />

from the Pickaway County<br />

Commissioners, the Pickaway County<br />

Sheriff's Office, Sheriff Hafey, and Chief<br />

Brown,” said Eastland Police Academy<br />

Commander Tim Voris. “They see, firsthand,<br />

that the deputies they hire from<br />

our program are prepared and ready to<br />

protect and serve in their community.”<br />

The donation of these vehicles by the<br />

Pickaway County Sheriff’s Office will<br />

allow Eastland-Fairfield cadets to train<br />

with a variety of vehicles and will also<br />

help train students in the high school<br />

criminal justice programs at Eastland<br />

and Fairfield Career Centers.<br />

“By acquiring these street-tested<br />

cruisers, all Eastland-Fairfield students<br />

can utilize them to train, perform stops<br />

and approaches, and conduct driving and<br />

speed measuring device classes,” said<br />

Voris.<br />

The sport utility vehicle that is part of<br />

the donation adds a new flare to the<br />

BPOT fleet. It will allow cadets the<br />

opportunity to train in a style of vehicle<br />

that has become more popular in recent<br />

“On behalf of our students and staff,<br />

we are all very grateful to the Pickaway<br />

County Sheriff's Office for their generosity<br />

and support of our cadets and students,”<br />

said Todd Hoffman, director of<br />

Eastland-Fairfield Adult Workforce<br />

Development. “Not only do these vehicles<br />

add to our program's toolbox that helps<br />

train and prepare our future police officers<br />

but it also reaffirms Eastland-<br />

Fairfield's strong partnerships with local<br />

and state law enforcement agencies for<br />

the betterment of our students and communities.”<br />

The BPOT vehicle fleet has expanded<br />

following additional donations in recent<br />

years by the Ohio State Highway Patrol,<br />

Baltimore Police Department, and<br />

Buckeye Honda.<br />

“The Pickaway County Sheriff’s Office<br />

is committed to the future of law enforcement,”<br />

said Brown. “The law enforcement<br />

industry is very competitive.<br />

Regardless of where the Eastland-<br />

Fairfield cadets go and what community<br />

they serve, these additional tools ensure<br />

that they will have the best opportunities<br />

for training and be better prepared to<br />

serve our communities.”<br />

many years of commitment and hard work surrounding the autism games - will be<br />

<strong>2024</strong> Election<br />

Plans<br />

Revealed<br />

It is not my intention to be a candidate for reelection<br />

to the Ohio House of Representatives<br />

in <strong>2024</strong>. I soon will notify the Franklin County<br />

Board of Elections of my withdrawal from the<br />

upcoming Republican primary.<br />

Although I value the work I have helped to accomplish<br />

this past year, it has been an immense<br />

challenge to balance legislative activities with<br />

the business I manage. I feel that I have not<br />

done and cannot do both well. 2020 was to<br />

have been my business’s breakout year—when<br />

COVID hit. By mid-2022, when we had sufficiently<br />

recovered from COVID, I became a lastminute<br />

candidate for this position when Laura<br />

Lanese opted not to run for reelection. Business<br />

expansion plans again were put on hold. The<br />

window of opportunity may close if I don’t act<br />

soon. In addition, two different major publishers<br />

have approached my business colleagues<br />

and me to write a definitive study guide for the<br />

new digital SAT. (My company partners with<br />

high schools in several states to provide quality<br />

SAT and ACT preparation for students at very affordable<br />

prices.)<br />

Making my decision easier is the appearance of<br />

two excellent individuals who have filed for my<br />

party’s primary—Shafi Shafat and Brian Garvine.<br />

Shafi has an accomplished business background,<br />

founded the Somali Columbus Chamber<br />

of Commerce, and, as a new American, is<br />

trying to bring others into the Republican frame<br />

of thought of limited government, free market<br />

capitalism, and common-sense values. Brian, a<br />

local attorney in private practice, has a long history<br />

of civic involvement and elected experience.<br />

A former Ashville City Councilman, he has<br />

served on local, state, and national boards for<br />

various organizations.<br />

It has been the honor of a lifetime to serve in the<br />

Ohio General Assembly. It is an awesome responsibility<br />

with which I have been entrusted<br />

and one I take very seriously. The opportunity<br />

to do good and make a difference for our community,<br />

as well as for the citizens of the State of<br />

Ohio, is unsurpassed. For the remainder of my<br />

term, which runs through December 31 of this<br />

year, I will continue to do my best to represent<br />

our community in a responsive and effective<br />

manner and to advocate for all of us in the Ohio<br />

House of Representatives.<br />

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

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

parts of West, <strong>South</strong>west, and <strong>South</strong> Columbus,<br />

Grove City, Urbancrest, and portions of Franklin<br />

and Jackson Townships. He reports regularly on<br />

his activities in this position and his campaign has<br />

A bi-monthly feature celebrating our community’s senior citizens<br />

Benefits of growing older<br />

Many people think of growing older in a<br />

negative light. Although there are some<br />

side effects of aging one may wish to avoid,<br />

people may find that the benefits of growing<br />

older outweigh the negatives. Seniors<br />

are a rapidly growing segment of the population.<br />

With so many people living longer,<br />

it’s time to celebrate the perks of getting<br />

older rather than the drawbacks. Here are<br />

some benefits to growing old: Higher selfesteem.<br />

Financial perks. Reasoning and<br />

problem-solving skills. Less stress.<br />

Eat healthy at 50 and up<br />

A balanced diet is an integral element of<br />

a healthy lifestyle for men, women and<br />

children alike.<br />

According to the National Institute on<br />

Aging, simply counting calories without<br />

regard for the foods being consumed is not<br />

enough for men and women 50 and older to<br />

maintain their long-term health. Rather,<br />

the NIA emphasizes the importance of<br />

choosing low-calorie foods that have a lot of<br />

the nutrients the body needs. But counting<br />

calories can be an effective way to maintain<br />

a healthy weight, provided those calories<br />

are coming from nutrient-rich foods.<br />

The NIA advises men and women over<br />

50 adhere to the following daily calorie<br />

intake recommendations.<br />

•Women: Not physically active: 1,600<br />

calories. Somewhat active: 1,800 calories.<br />

Active lifestyle: between 2,000 and 2,200<br />

calories.<br />

•Men: Not physically active: 2,000 calories.<br />

Somewhat active: between 2,200 and<br />

2,400 calories. Active lifestyle: between<br />

2,400 and 2,800 calories.<br />

The NIA recommends eating many different<br />

colors and types of vegetables and<br />

fruits. Phytochemicals are substances that<br />

occur naturally in plants, and there are<br />

thousands of these substances offering various<br />

benefits.<br />

A person’s sense of smell may fade with<br />

age, and because smell and taste are so<br />

closely related, foods enjoyed for years may<br />

no longer tantalize the taste buds.<br />

That can be problematic, as many people<br />

instinctually add more salt to foods they<br />

find bland. According to the U.S. Office of<br />

Disease Prevention and Health Promotion,<br />

older adults should consume no more than<br />

1,500 milligrams of sodium per day.<br />

That equates to roughly 3/4 teaspoon of<br />

salt. Older men and women should resist<br />

the temptation to use salt to add flavor to<br />

foods, instead opting for healthy foods that<br />

they can still smell and taste.<br />

Maintaining a healthy diet after 50 may<br />

require some hard work and discipline.<br />

But the long-term benefits of a healthy<br />

diet make the extra effort well worth it.<br />

CW Schools prepare to improve cybersecurity<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

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

starting the new year with a checkup - a<br />

cyber checkup for the district’s information<br />

technology systems.<br />

During the <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> Board of<br />

Education’s Jan. 22 meeting, the board<br />

approved an $18,375 agreement with<br />

DataServ to assess the district’s vulnerability<br />

by collecting data, conducting interviews<br />

and meetings, and providing a<br />

detailed final report.<br />

“K-12 are the number one targeted<br />

accounts,” said Tom Munson, director of<br />

strategic planning. “Sixty-two percent of all<br />

these accounts involve some type of human<br />

involvement. People in education are<br />

inherently trusting and the bad actors will<br />

use that against us. Bad actors like the<br />

data school districts have. It is very clean<br />

data. They can grab it and sell it on the<br />

dark web for $200 per student record.”<br />

said the average ransomware payout is<br />

these things, and we don’t have an assessment,<br />

we’re not going to have cyber insurance<br />

and that’s a problem.”<br />

The contract’s assessment categories<br />

cover engagement, administration, collaboration,<br />

computing, network, cybersecurity,<br />

and physical security. The company<br />

expects to spend 245 hours working on the<br />

project.<br />

“DataServ’s team will continually<br />

engage your team throughout the assessment<br />

to ensure our recommendations<br />

result in developing a successful and secure<br />

IST path for the organization,” said<br />

Munson in a Dec. 27 letter to Roberts. “The<br />

end result is achieving deeper visibility so<br />

the organization is empowered to make<br />

decisions aligned to the needs of the business<br />

today and for tomorrow. The estimated<br />

timeframe for completion is 45-90 days.”<br />

In outlining the issues prompting the<br />

assessment, there was concern about a<br />

recent cyber-attack on a neighboring district<br />

that caused their network to go down<br />

for two weeks.<br />

In the submitted agreement, <strong>Canal</strong><br />

<strong>Winchester</strong> expressed concern about their<br />

current state of cybersecurity, including<br />

insurance critical in protecting the district<br />

financially; execution of a response plan;<br />

policies and procedures; and information<br />

sharing.<br />

Another concern is the proper level of IT<br />

resources and if those resources are qualified<br />

to lead the district into the future.<br />

DataServ pointed out that visibility into<br />

support people, processes, policies and contracts…will<br />

position the district for its<br />

future with the focus on Portrait of a<br />

Graduate, new programs and tools to evaluate<br />

technology and applications.<br />

“Bad actors come up with new things<br />

every year,” said Munson. “We try to make<br />

it difficult for the bad guys to get in. What<br />

comes out of this (assessment) is a<br />

roadmap. A complete three-year cyber<br />

security roadmap to get you up to that minimum<br />

point. Then we will give you recommendations.<br />

The final report is about 140<br />

pages long.”<br />

The board passed a resolution establishing<br />

and maintaining a special trust fund in<br />

collecting resources to award postsecondary<br />

scholarships on behalf of the family<br />

of Marilyn “Sal” Multerer.<br />

“I wanted to recognize the family,” said<br />

Roberts. “There’s already donations that<br />

are coming in. This lady was very instrumental<br />

in the community, in the school district.<br />

Education was very important to her.<br />

The family is looking to contribute $50,000<br />

in the next six months and another $50,000<br />

in another six to 12 months to have<br />

$100,000 in the account.”<br />

Roberts said his office is working with<br />

the guidance counselors at the high school<br />

to establish criteria in determining how the<br />

scholarships will be awarded.<br />

Auditor returns funds<br />

Franklin County Auditor Michael<br />

Stinziano announced the Auditor’s office<br />

reallocated $5 million to schools, libraries,<br />

parks, municipalities and agencies.<br />

Of that $5 million, a majority of the<br />

funds — more than $3.2 million - go to<br />

school districts across the county. Franklin<br />

$414,173, townships will get $259,952,<br />

libraries and parks will get $136,270, and<br />

county agencies will get $944,764.<br />

The reallocated money could be used for<br />

items like property tax relief, school supplies<br />

or other needs that benefit residents<br />

of Franklin County.<br />

Columbus City Schools will get the<br />

largest allotment of all the districts, at<br />

$1.08 million. Other school districts receiving<br />

big returns are Hilliard City Schools<br />

with $293,911, Dublin City Schools at<br />

$287,238, Worthington City Schools at<br />

$267,913, <strong>South</strong>-Western Schools at<br />

$249,263, Upper Arlington at $202,521,<br />

and Westerville City Schools with<br />

$187,802.<br />

received the largest reapportionment, at<br />

$189,000, followed by Dublin at $36,636<br />

and Upper Arlington at $28,192. Among<br />

libraries, the Columbus Metropolitan<br />

Library will receive $90,396, followed by<br />

the Worthington Public Library at $14,037<br />

and the Upper Arlington Public Library at<br />

$8,771.<br />

The redistributed money was collected<br />

as required by state law to pay for real<br />

estate reappraisals and triennial updates.

Man indicted for postal carrier robberies<br />

A Columbus man was indicted and arrested for federal crimes<br />

related to armed robberies of United States postal carriers, including<br />

one in <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong>.<br />

Anthony J. (“AJ”) Williams, 19, was charged with conspiring to<br />

commit an offense against the United States, aggravated robbery<br />

of property of the United States, and using a firearm during a<br />

crime of violence.<br />

According to the indictment, in November and December 2022,<br />

Williams robbed two postal carriers of their service keys. Williams<br />

allegedly brandished a Glock 19 firearm at the first victim and<br />

wounded the second victim by punching him in the face.<br />

The four-count indictment details that Williams allegedly conspired<br />

with at least four other individuals to rob postal service<br />

employees of their service keys to access USPS “blue boxes” and<br />

steal checks and money orders.<br />

Specifically, it is alleged that on Nov. 9, 2022, Williams committed<br />

an armed robbery against a postal carrier on Michigan<br />

Avenue in Columbus. Williams allegedly received $2,000 from coconspirators<br />

for stealing the carrier’s service key.<br />

On Christmas Eve in 2022, Williams allegedly punched a <strong>Canal</strong><br />

<strong>Winchester</strong> postal carrier who was working on Kodiak Drive and<br />

threatened to kill him if he did not turn over his postal service key.<br />

Brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence is punishable<br />

by at least seven years and up to life in prison. Aggravated robbery<br />

of government property carries a potential penalty of up to 25<br />

years in prison. Conspiring to commit an offense against the<br />

United States is punishable by up to five years in prison.<br />

An indictment merely contains allegations, and defendants are<br />

presumed innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law.<br />

Giants are coming!<br />

By Rick Palsgrove<br />

Managing Editor<br />

Massive things will pass through Groveport several times this<br />

year on State Route 317, then east on Bixby Road, and eventually<br />

to U.S. Route 33.<br />

Special trucks, ranging from 200 to 250 feet long, will transport<br />

mammoth, very heavy pieces of equipment weighing several tons<br />

and towering up from 16 to 20 feet tall, from the Rickenbacker<br />

Airport area to the new, $20 billion Intel semiconductor chip factory<br />

complex in Licking County. There will be a total of 18 hauls<br />

in two week intervals over a 36 week period.<br />

The humongous equipment cannot be transported on freeways<br />

because it will not fit under overpasses, so local roads must be<br />

used. The equipment will be trucked from Manchester on the Ohio<br />

River and through Central Ohio to Licking County.<br />

The equipment being hauled will be used in making semiconductor<br />

chips at the new Intel facility. The first shipment will<br />

crawl through Groveport on Feb. 10 starting around 7:30 a.m. The<br />

shipments will be accompanied by six Ohio Highway Patrol and<br />

13 Columbus Police cruisers.<br />

The trucks will haul the giant equipment north on State<br />

Route 317 using the south bound lanes so they can avoid the traffic<br />

light framework. Utility lines will also have to be moved and<br />

some trees trimmed in places along the journey so the gigantic<br />

equipment can pass by. The truck will park for the night on Old<br />

Bixby Road before heading out again east on Bixby Road to U.S.<br />

Route 33 the morning of Feb. 11. The load will travel east bound<br />

on U.S. Route 33 — in the west bound lanes to Gender Road.<br />

Groveport City officials are concerned about traffic and utility<br />

disruption caused by the shipments as well as potential damage<br />

to the road beds due to the crushing weight of the equipment<br />

being hauled.<br />

Groveport Police Chief Casey Adams also noted that the<br />

haulers will have to deal with getting around the Rickenbacker<br />

Air Show traffic and the Pelotonia bicycle tour on shipments later<br />

this year. He said there are concerns about how the big trucks<br />

with their heavy cargo will negotiate the roundabout at State<br />

Route 317 and Rohr Road.<br />

City of Groveport officials requested portable message boards<br />

be situated on State Route 317, on either end, at least five days<br />

prior to the movement that will indicate “Expect traffic delays -<br />

Next ‘X’ days — heavy equipment movement — Expect Detours,” or<br />

some similar language.<br />

City officials also require a permit be filed for any tree trimming<br />

of tree limbs that overhang in the right of way that is under<br />

the jurisdiction of the city of Groveport.<br />

According to city officials, no hauls can occur until the Franklin<br />

County Engineer issues a special/heavy haul permit on behalf of<br />

the city of Groveport and until all conditions are met.<br />

CW City Council meetings<br />

<strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> City Council meetings are held on the first<br />

and third Monday of every month. Meetings begin at 7 p.m. The<br />

meetings are open to the public.<br />

Council meets in work session at 6 p.m. prior to each city council<br />

meeting to discuss legislative items and other issues of the city<br />

prior to being included on a city council agenda.<br />

The first work session of the month focuses on finance/economic<br />

development items and the second monthly work session focuses<br />

on service/safety items.<br />

While each work session includes specific areas of focus, other<br />

items may be brought before council as needed.<br />

CW school board meetings<br />

The <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> Board of Education meets on the second<br />

Monday of each month at 7 p.m. in the <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong><br />

Education Center, 100 Washington St. on the second floor in room<br />

204/206.<br />

The public is welcome to attend.
