Where should London<br />

put pickleball courts?<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

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

The city of London is looking to install<br />

pickleball courts, but where should they go?<br />

The current proposal is to place them at<br />

Cowling Park where the basketball court<br />

once stood, southeast of the playground and<br />

shelter house. Some residents who live near<br />

the park think that’s a bad idea.<br />

Ciera Bierbaugh, whose property sits adjacent<br />

to the park and close to the proposed<br />

pickleball site, voiced her opposition at city<br />

council’s <strong>March</strong> 21 meeting.<br />

“Cowling Park is where, currently, families<br />

can let their children play without too<br />

much of a safety concern, and it’s where<br />

community events are held. I know that<br />

placing a sport such as pickleball at the<br />

park will draw a much rowdier and more<br />

adult crowd. This would be taking away<br />

from the safety of children and families,”<br />

Bierbaugh said.<br />

She also expressed concerns about parking<br />

and noise. Limited parking spaces at the<br />

park are already an issue, she said. She<br />

worries the problem will worsen if the pickleball<br />

courts draw crowds. As for noise, she<br />

anticipates players will be boisterous to the<br />

point of excessive or offensive noise, a violation<br />

of the city’s noise ordinance. She also<br />

cited reports nationwide about noise problems<br />

associated with the high decibel levels<br />

that result when the paddle hits the ball in<br />

pickleball.<br />

“I don’t hate pickleball. I just think there<br />

are better places for it,” Bierbaugh said,<br />

suggesting the city consider Merri-Mac<br />

Park.<br />

Rob Treynor, who lives next door to Bierbaugh,<br />

shares some of Bierbaugh’s concerns,<br />

including worry about decibel levels. He also<br />

mentioned to council possible drainage issues<br />

at the proposed spot at Cowling Park.<br />

Additionally, he said installation of courts<br />

Whiz bang eclipse lessons<br />

would take away from the park’s green<br />

space, and tall fencing around the courts<br />

would impact the park’s beauty.<br />

Resident David Mars advocated for locating<br />

the pickleball courts at Merri-Mac Park. While explaining how solar eclipses work, Dr. Dave from the Whiz Bang Science Show<br />

He is active with Merri-Mac Park Miracle, holds the moon while audience volunteers Ben Carruthers holds the Earth and Ivory<br />

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

It’s been a long time coming, but the Sterling<br />

Joint Ambulance District finally took delivery of<br />

their new medic earlier this month.<br />

Joyce Phillips, Mount Sterling council’s representative<br />

at squad meetings, reported the news at<br />

the <strong>March</strong> 25 council meeting.<br />

When the ambulance district originally ordered<br />

the vehicle, they were told to expect delivery in May<br />

2022. One thing after the other pushed back the delivery<br />

date, the biggest one being delays on chassis<br />

manufacturing, said Chief Dave Taylor.<br />

The new medic cost $222,000. It replaces a 2009<br />

medic that has 191,000 miles on it. The old medic<br />

will be put up for sale on www.govdeals.com.<br />

The ambulance district maintains a fleet of four<br />

medics. Two are staffed 24/7 at the Mount Sterling<br />

station. One is staffed Monday through Friday, 7<br />

a.m. to 5 p.m., in Range Township. The fourth is rotated<br />

in to balance out the miles on the other vehicles<br />

block from it, he said he would like to see as<br />

much energy put into improving Merri-Mac<br />

Park as has been put into Cowling Park to<br />

make it a destination not only for people<br />

who live near the park but all London residents<br />

and visitors from outside the area.<br />

Location considerations<br />

Rex Castle, London’s safety-service director,<br />

and Landon McKenzie, the city’s parks<br />

and recreation director, explained that they<br />

proposed Cowling Park for the pickleball<br />

courts because the park already has restrooms,<br />

electricity, and security cameras.<br />

McKenzie also noted that the asphalt left<br />

posed spot is in poor shape, making it a<br />

“dead spot” in the park.<br />

McKenzie said they considered three<br />

other locations: an area in the north part of<br />

Cowling Park, across from the hospital; between<br />

the parking lot and ball diamond off<br />

of Columbia Avenue; and an undetermined<br />

spot in Merri-Mac Park. These options<br />

lacked some of the utilities the proposed<br />

spot already has in place. One of the main<br />

considerations was restrooms, said Councilman<br />

Michael Norman. To build new ones at<br />

any of these other locations would add significant<br />

cost to the project, he said.<br />

Norman and Councilman Greg Eades<br />

said they appreciated the concerns citizens<br />

raised about the proposed location at Cowling<br />

Park, saying some of those concerns<br />

were ones they had not considered.<br />

Audience members and council members<br />

offered up possible solutions to make Merri-<br />

Mac Park a location for the courts. Mars<br />

said the park needs restrooms with or without<br />

the courts. He suggested the city incorporate<br />

restrooms into the pickleball court<br />

plans and said Merri-Mac Park Miracle<br />

could help with funding. Portable toilets<br />

were another suggestion. Eades said<br />

Berliner Park, a large outdoor sports complex<br />

in Columbus, functions well with<br />

portable toilets.<br />

Cost and next steps<br />

McKenzie said the estimated cost to install<br />

the three pickleball courts at Cowling<br />

Park is approximately $115,000. He said<br />

that cost would probably be the roughly the<br />

same if the courts were placed at one of the<br />

other locations. He said he does not have an<br />

estimated cost to build permanent restrooms.<br />

He noted the approximate cost for<br />

portable toilets is $140 per month per unit.<br />

Norman sponsored legislation, introduced<br />

at the <strong>March</strong> 21 council meeting, to<br />

set aside funding for the project. McKenzie<br />

explained that $60,000 would come from the<br />

parks and playground fund, $40,000 would<br />

come from the general fund, and $15,000<br />

would come from the existing parks and<br />

recreation budget.<br />

Ultimately, council voted to leave the<br />

funding request on first reading. The second<br />

reading will take place at council’s next<br />

meeting set for April 4 at 6:30 p.m. The project<br />

will be part of discussions at two committee<br />

meetings before then: public service<br />

on April 9 at 5 p.m. and finance on April 15<br />

at 5:30 p.m. All of these meetings will take<br />

place at city hall, 20 S. Walnut St.<br />

Girls’ powerlifting team wins state championship<br />

The <strong>Madison</strong>-Plains Powerlifting Tradition Teams traveled to<br />

Kenton on <strong>March</strong> 16 for the Bill McClain Ohio High School State<br />

Powerlifting Meet. Nearly 400 athletes from across the state took<br />

part. A total of 45 <strong>Madison</strong>-Plains lifters were among them, competing<br />

in Divisions 5-7.<br />

The girls’ team emerged as the state team champions for the second<br />

year in a row. They lifted a total of 5,725 pounds, just shy of<br />

the total they achieved last year, 5,815 pounds, which is a state<br />

record for Divisions 5-7 and a <strong>Madison</strong>-Plains school record. This<br />

marks the third state title for the girls’ team in school history.<br />

“I have said this for many years: ‘It takes a community to win<br />

championships.’ This is only scratching the surface. The seeds are<br />

continuing to be planted, and the wave is coming for <strong>Madison</strong>-<br />

Plains. This state championship is for <strong>Madison</strong>-Plains Local<br />

Schools,” said Mike Siders, who coaches the powerlifting team with<br />

Paul Bryant.<br />

The boys’ team placed third at state this year and broke a school<br />

record, lifting a total of 12,890 pounds.<br />

Siders said of the young boys’ team, “They show promise in the<br />

future to climb the ladder.”<br />

Many Golden Eagles made the podium for individual placements,<br />

as well, including four who came away with state championship<br />

titles. The meet recognizes the top seven girls per weight<br />

class and the top 12 boys per weight class as state placers.<br />

Leading the championship charge for <strong>Madison</strong>-Plains was junior<br />

Mackenzie Reeves who competed in the 145-pound weight class and<br />

placed first with the top deadlift of 330 pounds. Reeves is a twotime<br />

state champion and a four-sport athlete, also playing volleyball,<br />

basketball, and softball.<br />

Competing in the 155-pound weight class, junior Abigail Lindsey<br />

placed first with the top squat at 355 pounds, a new state record,<br />

and the top bench press at 140 pounds. Both Reeves and Lindsey<br />

had a softball scrimmage three days prior to the state competition.<br />

Junior Mckenzie Adams took first place in the 125-pound weight<br />

class with the top squat of 300 pounds.<br />

Sophomore Dallas Johnston clinched the 185-pound class title<br />

with the top squat of 550 pounds and the top deadlift of 500 pounds.<br />

“These lifters continue the tradition of individual state champions<br />

at <strong>Madison</strong>-Plains, now totaling 11 girls and five guys with<br />

plenty more to come in the future,” Siders said.<br />

KIRK<br />

William “Bill” Kirk, beloved husband, father, Papaw, and greatgrandpa,<br />

peacefully passed away on <strong>March</strong> 22, <strong>2024</strong>, surrounded<br />

by his cherished loved ones. Born on Jan. 21, 1942, Bill’s life was a<br />

obituaries<br />

London City Councilman Michael Norman has introduced legislation<br />

calling for the transfer of $600,000 from the city’s general<br />

fund to cover a funding shortfall in the fire and EMS department.<br />

The proposal, introduced at council’s <strong>March</strong> 21 meeting, comes<br />

after voters turned down the city’s request for a 0.25 percent income<br />

tax increase for the fire and EMS department in the <strong>March</strong> 19 primary<br />

election.<br />

Norman said the proposed legislation is meant to not only bolster<br />

fire and EMS funding but also send a message to the community<br />

that “they’re going to be safe” and to the fire and EMS staff that the<br />

city supports them.<br />

Contingency plans for a failed levy attempt included the possibility<br />

of staffing cuts and closure of one of the department’s two stations,<br />

Norman said.<br />

About the fire and EMS staff, Norman said, “We need to send<br />

them a message they’re secure in their job there, that we appreciate<br />

them, and that we’re going to support them.”<br />

Councilman Greg Eades said he appreciates that Norman wants<br />

to make sure the fire and EMS department is fully funded. He said<br />

he, too, does not want to see changes in the service. But he questioned<br />

how Norman came to the dollar amount he included in the<br />

legislation. Eades said the proposal needs to go through “the proper<br />

channels” to determine an accurate number for the department’s<br />

shortfall for this year.<br />

Norman said he checked with the city auditor regarding the dollar<br />

amount. He also said he did not intend for the proposal to be<br />

voted on right away and that he knew it would go to the finance<br />

committee for discussion.<br />

An avid golfer with a knack for humor, Bill was known for his<br />

quick wit and infectious laughter. He found joy in dancing and cherished<br />

moments spent listening to old country music and dancing<br />

with every chance he had. His love for westerns and annual trips<br />

to Wildwood, Florida, during cold winters were cherished traditions<br />

that brought him immense happiness.<br />

Bill dedicated many years of hard work to Anheuser-Busch, contributing<br />

to its success before retiring to savor more time with his<br />

beloved family and pursue his passions. His warm smile, kind<br />

heart, and unwavering love will be deeply missed by all who had<br />

the privilege of knowing him. Bill’s spirit and the memories he created<br />

will live on forever in the hearts of his family and friends.<br />

Visitation and a celebration of Bill’s life were held on <strong>March</strong> 25<br />

in Eberle-Fisher Funeral Home and Crematory, London, with procession<br />

to Summerford Township Cemetery immediately following<br />

the service. Memorial donations can be made to benefit the<br />

Alzheimer’s Association online at www.alz.org/donate or the Juvenile<br />

Diabetes Research Foundation online at www.jdrf.org/donate/.<br />

Both of these foundations hold a special place in the family’s heart.<br />

Condolences for the family are encouraged to be shared online<br />

ings are hoppin’ in<br />

downtown London<br />

www.madisonmessengernews.com<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

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

A couple of friends check out the food<br />

truck menus. Someone points out a new<br />

shop they love. A family, appearing to span<br />

three generations, walks down the sidewalk<br />

hand-in-hand-in-hand.<br />

Such was the scene the evening of <strong>March</strong><br />

21 as the Bunny Hop Shop Hop got under<br />

way in downtown London. Merchants<br />

stayed open late and offered specials. The<br />

Easter bunny waved from outside the movie<br />

theater.<br />

This lively, friendly atmosphere and celebration<br />

of small businesses is what London’s<br />

1811 Downtown District strives to<br />

achieve with every shop hop and special<br />

event they put on.<br />

“Our goal is to create a vibrant business<br />

environment in downtown London with historical<br />

flair,” said David Mars, 1811 Downtown<br />

District president.<br />

The non-profit organization formed in<br />

June 2021 as a fund-raising and promotional<br />

outgrowth of the city of London’s historic<br />

downtown revitalization committee.<br />

The group puts on the popular Chocolate<br />

Walk in February, Old Fashioned Christmas<br />

in late November, and the aforementioned<br />

shop hops.<br />

“We see the events as a way to teach consumer<br />

behavior, getting people downtown<br />

consistently so they can see what it has to<br />

offer. There are a lot of unique, one-off businesses<br />

here that you won’t find in other<br />

places,” Mars said.<br />

Over the past several years, London’s<br />

downtown business scene has changed significantly,<br />

with more and more storefronts<br />

going from vacant spaces to viable businesses.<br />

“When we started, occupancy was 60 percent,<br />

and we’re up to 90 percent now.<br />

Within the next year, we will be very close<br />

to 100 percent occupancy in the downtown<br />

business district,” Mars said. “We are committed<br />

to supporting this growth and serving<br />

as a platform for businesses to<br />

collaborate.”<br />

Upcoming events hosted by the 1811<br />

Downtown District include:<br />

• A shop hop with a London, Ohio/London,<br />

England theme: April 19 from 5 to 8 p.m.<br />

The theme honors the London (Ohio)<br />

Marathon, Half-Marathon, and 5K taking<br />

place the next day to benefit Merri-Mac Park.<br />

The timing takes into consideration the fact<br />

that hundreds of runners and walkers will be<br />

in town April 19 to pick up their race packets.<br />

Mars thinks it will be a great way to introduce<br />

visitors to London’s downtown.<br />

• A shop hop with a mom theme: May<br />

16 from 5 to 8 p.m. As with all of the organization’s<br />

shop hops, this one will feature food<br />

trucks, raffles, and business specials and<br />

The Easter bunny waves to pedestrians<br />

and commuters outside the London State<br />

Theater during the 1811 Downtown District’s<br />

Bunny Hop Shop Hop on <strong>March</strong> 21.<br />

events.<br />

Because the London Strawberry Festival<br />

takes place in June, the 1811 Downtown<br />

District will not hold a shop hop that<br />

month. Shop hops should resume in July,<br />

taking place the third Thursdays of the<br />

month. The group hopes to add a farmers<br />

market and cruise-in to the event rotation<br />

sometime in June.<br />

Anyone interested in promoting downtown<br />

London is welcome to get involved in<br />

the 1811 Downtown District. The group<br />

meets the second Thursday of each month<br />

at 7 p.m. at Cultivate, 6 E. Second St. There<br />

is no cost to join or participate. All members<br />

are volunteers, though the group is hiring a<br />

part-time person to help with marketing,<br />

paid through a partnership with Cultivate.<br />

Volunteers are always welcome to help<br />

with events and to pick up trash throughout<br />

the year. A volunteer form can be found on<br />

the organization’s website at www.1811district.com,<br />

or interested individuals can send<br />

a message via the group’s Facebook page<br />

(search for “London Ohio’s 1811 Downtown<br />

District).<br />

Donations to help cover event expenses<br />

can be made through the website. All donations<br />

are tax deductible.<br />
