Controlling<br />

traffic on<br />

Main Street<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

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

The city of London is working to make<br />

certain downtown roadways safer.<br />

One of the focus areas is the wide stretch<br />

of North Main Street between High Street<br />

and Park Avenue. At a council meeting in<br />

late March, Vincent Morse who lives on<br />

North High Street expressed concern about<br />

motorists speeding and passing one another<br />

unsafely in that area. He said he has seen<br />

drivers pass on the right, instead of the left.<br />

“I know there’s a problem there,” said<br />

council member Rich Hays, who sits on<br />

council’s safety committee and works at<br />

Eberle-Fisher Funeral Home along that<br />

stretch of North Main.<br />

City leaders have been looking into possible<br />

remedies, and members of the safety<br />

committee addressed the issue at their<br />

April meeting.<br />

The speed limit there is 35 mph. While<br />

lowering the speed limit might help with<br />

up with the <strong>Madison</strong> County Sheriff’s Office to put on a<br />

bike rodeo as part of Celebrate Trails Day on April 27.<br />

The event took place at the Prairie Grass Trailhead in<br />

London. Participants could bring their own bikes or borrow<br />

a bike to ride through the rodeo course where they<br />

learned about bike safety. Each participant received a<br />

free bike helmet. –<strong>Messenger</strong> photos by Pat Donahue<br />

MP seeking public input on school facilities<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

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

<strong>Madison</strong>-Plains Local Schools leaders are looking<br />

for feedback and input from the community regarding<br />

school facilities.<br />

The school board has scheduled a special meeting<br />

for <strong>May</strong> 22 at 7 p.m. at the high school. The purpose<br />

of the meeting is to engage the community in a conversation<br />

about facility options for the district.<br />

“We believe there’s a need facilities wise. We’re<br />

open to ideas from the community,” said Mark<br />

Mason, school board president.<br />

The district has been on the ballot three times in<br />

the past year, asking voters to pass a bond issue to<br />

build a new facility for grades K-12. All three ballot<br />

attempts failed. The vote tallies were: 911-1,134 in<br />

the <strong>May</strong> 2023 primary election; 1,209-1,835 in the<br />

November 2023 general election; and 713-1,387 in<br />

the March <strong>2024</strong> primary.<br />

The proposed project would have cost $68.6 million.<br />

The bond issue would have raised $55.3 million<br />

of that total over a period of up to 37 years. The cost<br />

to the taxpayer would have been $189 per year per<br />

$100,000 of appraised property value.<br />

Following the levy failures, the school board and<br />

district administrators are going back to the drawing<br />

board. Input from the community will help the<br />

board make decisions on how to move forward, said<br />

Superintendent Chad Eisler.<br />

The <strong>May</strong> 22 meeting is slated to take place in the<br />

high school gymnasium. The district will provide<br />

child care on-site during the meeting.

Life lessons to be learned through planting trees<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

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

Trees are everywhere on the St. Patrick<br />

School property in London. They stand as a<br />

welcoming committee in the front yard,<br />

make a neat border alongside and beyond<br />

the baseball diamond on the acreage out<br />

back, and dot nooks and crannies in between.<br />

Most are there thanks to a tradition that<br />

started 24 years ago. With the intent of imparting<br />

life lessons to students and benefitting<br />

the environment, Dr. Jake Froning,<br />

principal at the time, initiated a tree planting<br />

ceremony to coincide with Arbor Day.<br />

Every year since, students and staff have<br />

<br />

part of the problem, Rex Castle, the city’s safety-service director,<br />

said that is not an easy thing to do. The state regulates the speed<br />

limit on High Street because it is a state highway. To change the<br />

limit, Castle said the city would have to pay<br />

for a traffic study then present a resolution<br />

from council to the Ohio Department of<br />

Transportation (ODOT) requesting a<br />

change with no guarantee the request<br />

would be granted.<br />

Instead, the city is increasing police patrols<br />

in the area to enforce the speed limit<br />

and catch drivers who are passing where<br />

they shouldn’t.<br />

Additionally, the city administration and<br />

street department are proposing a plan to<br />

add more striping, including parallel parkplanted<br />

a tree—or multiple trees—somewhere on the<br />

property. And every year, even after he retired, Froning<br />

has been there to be a part of it.<br />

At this year’s ceremony, held on April 26, the school<br />

planted an American linden which will grow to be between<br />

60 and 70 feet tall with a 40-foot branch spread.<br />

While students stood in a circle around the sapling,<br />

Froning talked to them about the concept of continuous<br />

improvement, using the yearly tree plantings as an example<br />

of how steadily doing a little bit can add up to<br />

something big.<br />

He also talked about altruism, defining it as doing<br />

something for the pure beauty of doing something good<br />

without expectation of getting something in return.<br />

Planting a tree for future generations to enjoy is an act<br />

of altruism, he said.<br />

This year’s ceremony included a welcome message<br />

ing lines along each side of the street and<br />

buffering lines between the parking spaces<br />

and the traffic lanes. Currently, the only<br />

striping on that stretch of road is a center<br />

line. The idea is to make it very clear that<br />

while the road is wide, it is only designed for<br />

two lanes of traffic.<br />

“We’re trying to make the corridor look<br />

narrower so that people aren’t inclined to pass<br />

when they’re not supposed to,” Castle said.<br />

Bill Long, street superintendent, is securing<br />

quotes for the striping work. Paint<br />

with glass particles is required to make the<br />

lines reflective at night. The project would<br />

cost roughly $30,000. The striping plan and<br />

request for funding must go through council’s<br />

service and finance committees. Ultimately,<br />

it will be up to council whether the<br />

project moves forward.<br />

Teens test knowledge in Envirothon competition<br />

By Dedra Cordle<br />

Staff Writer<br />

The annual Ohio Area IV Envirothon<br />

was held at the Gwynne Conservation Area<br />

on the Farm Science Review grounds in<br />

London on April 30. Approximately 60 high<br />

school teams from across the region participated<br />

in the outdoor, academic, and environmental<br />

competition.<br />

The competition tests students’ knowledge<br />

in aquatic ecology, current environmental<br />

issues, forestry, soil, and wildlife. Local<br />

participants included two teams from <strong>Madison</strong>-Plains<br />

High School, three teams from<br />

Tolles Career & Technical Center, and three<br />

teams from West Jefferson High School.<br />

West Jefferson Team 1 took first place.<br />

Team members included Mathew Chmil,<br />

Brent Gardner, Charlie Kitchen, Charles<br />

Stephens, and Katey Stephens. Chmil,<br />

Gardner, and Charles Stephens also were<br />

on the winning team in 2023.<br />

This year’s top four teams qualified for<br />

the state competition which will take place<br />

at Hocking College in June. Two teams from<br />

Sycamore High School (Montgomery<br />

County) and one team from Beavercreek<br />

High School (Dayton) joined West Jefferson<br />

Team 1 as state qualifiers.<br />

The <strong>Madison</strong> and Fayette Soil and Water<br />

Conservation Districts hosted the Area IV<br />

contest.<br />

Phone checks, letters promote safe prom driving<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> County’s Safe Communities<br />

Coalition found unique ways to express the<br />

importance of safe driving to London High<br />

School students going to prom.<br />

The coalition arranged for London Elementary<br />

fourth-graders to write messages<br />

with drawings to promote safe driving<br />

habits. The notes were given out during<br />

lunch period on April 26 to high school students<br />

planning to attend prom the next day.<br />

Also on Aug. 26, representatives of the<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> County Sheriff’s Office, <strong>Madison</strong><br />

County Public Health, London Police Department,<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> County Emergency<br />

Management Agency, West Jefferson Police<br />

Department, and Ohio State Highway Patrol—all<br />

of which are members of the coalition—performed<br />

a phone check as students<br />

were leaving the school grounds.<br />

During the check, law enforcement officers<br />

stopped each vehicle leaving the parking<br />

lot to check where the driver’s phone<br />

was. If the driver had their phone out of<br />

sight and in a safe place, the driver received<br />

Smartie candies. Those who did not have<br />

their phone in a safe place while driving received<br />

a Dum-Dum sucker.<br />

The Safe Communities Coalition urges<br />

drivers to put their phones away when behind<br />

the wheel. Drivers should follow these<br />

steps for a safe drive:<br />

• If you are expecting a text message or<br />

need to send one, pull over and park your<br />

car in a safe location.<br />

HUFF<br />

Norma Jean Huff, 84, of London, Ohio, was welcomed<br />

into the eternal presence of Jesus on April 22,<br />

<strong>2024</strong>. She was surrounded by her husband, children,<br />

and grandchildren and passed away very peacefully.<br />

Norma was born in West Virginia on Sept. 16, 1939,<br />

to Oren Fay Lattimer and Virginia Marie Lattimer<br />

(Cunningham). She was the fifth of eight siblings, and<br />

she always fondly shared stories of growing up with her<br />

brothers and sisters.<br />

Norma was preceded in death by: her parents, Oren<br />

and Virginia; brothers, Jim Lattimer, Don Lattimer,<br />

and Bernie Lattimer; and sister-in-law, Geneva Lattimer.<br />

Norma is survived by: her loving husband, Jim Huff;<br />

children, Doug (Kylee) Huff, Sandra (Bob) Oiler, and<br />

Greg (Andee) Huff; grandchildren, Tisha, Tara,<br />

Christina, Bobby (Carmen), Haley, Haden, Darian<br />

(Brandie), Thadd, Taven, and Brylee; great-grandchildren,<br />

Ashton, Jhanessa, Shelbi, Jeyshon, Kiandra,<br />

Kendrick, Freddy, and Franky; siblings, Wanda Bainter,<br />

Eileen (Frank) Eden, David (Myrla) Lattimer, and<br />

Gary (Marci) Lattimer; sisters-in-law, Jean Lattimer<br />

and Janet Lattimer; beloved friend, Kathy Samson; as<br />

well as dozens of nieces and nephews.<br />

Norma met Jim at Circleville Bible College. They<br />

were wed on Feb. 25, 1964. Jim always said that he<br />

knew they would get to celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary<br />

together, which they recently celebrated on<br />

Feb. 25, <strong>2024</strong>. Jim and Norma both loved to share stories<br />

from their early relationship and marriage, and<br />

Law enforcement officers conducted a phone check at London<br />

High School on April 26, the day before prom, to emphasize the<br />

need to place phones in a safe, out-of-sight place while driving.<br />

• Ask your passenger to be your “designated texter.” Allow them<br />

access to your phone to respond to calls or messages.<br />

• Do not engage in social media scrolling or messaging while<br />

driving.<br />

• Cell phone use is habit-forming. Struggling to not text and<br />

drive? Activate your phone’s “Do Not Disturb” feature, silence notifications,<br />

or put your phone in the trunk, glove box, or back seat of<br />

your vehicle until you arrive at your destination.<br />

obituaries<br />

anyone who has heard these stories has experienced the<br />

joy and laughter they incite.<br />

In the early years of their marriage, Norma served<br />

as a stay-at-home mother to her three children. She<br />

later worked as a cashier at K-Mart, secretary at Purex,<br />

and the accountant for White Tiger Graphics, from<br />

where she retired.<br />

Norma enjoyed Gospel music, singing hymns, gardening,<br />

and bird watching. She especially loved watching<br />

birds from her porch swing with her grandchildren.<br />

Norma was also a faithful giver, and missions were always<br />

very important to her. She and Jim always joyfully<br />

supported missionaries whenever they could. Most importantly,<br />

she spent the most time reading scripture<br />

and praying for her family. She would sincerely end<br />

every phone call with, “I pray for you every day!” Everyone<br />

who knew her was reassured that they were loved<br />

and prayed for.<br />

Norma was a devoted member of Church of Christ in<br />

Christian Union in Newport, Ohio.<br />

Visitation, a memorial service, and a reception were<br />

held on <strong>May</strong> 3 at <strong>Madison</strong> County Vineyard Church,<br />

London. Dr. David Lattimer officiated the service.<br />

In Norma’s honor, the family requests that you<br />

would prayerfully consider contributing to the CCCU<br />

Missionary Department to help support missionaries,<br />

which was a very important cause to Norma. A check<br />

can be mailed to: CCCU Missionary Department, 1553<br />

Lancaster Pike, Circleville, OH 43113.<br />

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

John Edward Leach, born August 26, 1938, passed away after a<br />

long illness on Saturday, April 13, <strong>2024</strong> in Englewood, Florida. He is survived<br />

by his loving wife, Janice and children: Andy Leach, Jonda (Eric) Brown, Melinda<br />

(Eric) Cunningham, Renae (Bob) Zabloudil and Cory (Alyssa) Bexfield, as well<br />

as his brother and best friend, Rodger (Jean) Leach. Grandchildren mourning<br />

Alex (Bryan) Brown, Grant (Jenni) Brown, Chase (Caitlin) Cunningham, Brynn<br />

Cunningham, Ryleigh Bexfield, Tessa Bexfield, Callhan Bexfield, Andon Bexfield,<br />

Lexi Zabloudil, Natalie Zabloudil, Vinny Zabloudil; great grandchildren: Hanna,<br />

Michael, Caleb, and Samuel Leach, and Georgia Jean Brown. John is also<br />

mourned by nieces, nephews and extended family and friends in both Ohio<br />

and Florida along with his sweet beagle mix, Bree. He is preceded in death by<br />

his parents, Ralph "Bud" and Mildred Leach; Sister Patricia (Leach) Turnbull.<br />

John was a friend to everyone he met, which included coworkers within the<br />

Ohio Department of Corrections; the Village of Mount Sterling, Ohio; and Metal<br />

Graphics. He was a faithful member of the First United Methodist Church in<br />

Mount Sterling, Ohio and at the Englewood Methodist in Englewood, FL. John<br />

was a dedicated member of the Aladdin Shrine, Masonic Lodge, Knights of<br />

Pythias, Scottish Rite, and the American Legion. John graduated from Mount<br />

Sterling High School and served honorably in the United States Air Force. If<br />

you spent any time in Mount Sterling, you probably ran into John at Veteran's<br />

Field Fish Stand, at choir practice at the Methodist Church, or waving from his<br />

vintage John Deer tractor during Village Parades. If he wasn't in Mount<br />

Sterling, he was likely supporting one of his grandkid's events or activities. He<br />

absolutely loved them all and was their biggest fan, no matter if it was a ballet<br />

recital or championship game-- he showed up every time.

South Charleston<br />

www.madisonmessengernews.com<br />

Paying it forward by taking a look back in time<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

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

Joshua Murray, a third-grade language<br />

arts teacher at Miami View Elementary<br />

School, took the school’s third-graders on a<br />

walking tour of downtown South<br />

Charleston on April 26.<br />

He equipped each student with a copy of<br />

a 44-page booklet he had filled with nearly<br />

100 photos of iconic landmarks, many of<br />

which still stand today. At stops along the<br />

tour, he encouraged students to compare<br />

and contrast the old pictures with how<br />

things look today.<br />

Pointing to one of the grand houses on<br />

Chillicothe Street, Murray relayed the story<br />

of how an opera singer had it built with<br />

wide open spaces for good acoustics. He<br />

showed the students the “steps to nowhere”<br />

on Church Street, near U.S. Route 42, that<br />

he played on as a child, noting they once led<br />

to a school building that served students in<br />

the early 1900s. He took them to the tiny<br />

cemetery that sits next to South Charleston<br />

United Methodist Church to show them the<br />

gravemarker of Charles Paist after whom<br />

the town was named.<br />

“I see the kids light up when I tell them<br />

about certain buildings,” Murray said. “I<br />

think it’s important for students to have a good understanding of<br />

the history of our town and where we come from.”<br />

A teacher at Southeastern Local Schools for the past 16 years,<br />

Murray has been conducting the walking history tours with students<br />

for over 10 years. It’s one of the ways he is working to preserve,<br />

share, and celebrate the history of his hometown.<br />

“I’ve always been interested in history, I buy and sell antiques,<br />

and I’ve always loved photography,” Murray said.<br />

One of his uncles helped to nurture those interests by getting<br />

him into selling old photographs when he was a teenager. The same<br />

uncle took him to a postcard show where Murray found old images<br />

of South Charleston and, as a result, started a collection. Later, a<br />

history buff who appreciated Murray’s interest in local history donated<br />

his whole postcard collection to him.<br />

“A lot of people have invested in me, and I am trying to invest<br />

more in our town and in our kids,” Murray said. “I’ve seen more in-<br />

terest in local history over the last 10 years or so,<br />

which is exciting.”<br />

In November of last year, Murray established the<br />

“South Charleston, Ohio Through the Years” page<br />

on Facebook. The page has more than 2,200 followers.<br />

Visitors are encouraged to share historic photos,<br />

nostalgic items, and stories of South Charleston.<br />

The purpose of the page: “Let’s work together to<br />

keep the history of South Charleston alive.”<br />

Murray recently asked the page’s followers if<br />

they would be interested in Murray offering walking<br />

history tours to the public.<br />

“Between 80 and 100 people showed interest,”<br />

he said, adding that he hopes to set some tour<br />

dates for later this year.<br />

Two copies of Murray’s “History Tour of South<br />

Charleston <strong>2024</strong>” booklet are now part of the local<br />

history section at Houston Library in South<br />

Charleston.<br />

A detail pointed out on Joshua Murray’s walking<br />

history tour are the initials in the iron gate outside<br />

the brick home that sits diagonally across<br />

the street from Chillicothe Street Pizza: HEB<br />

stood for Henry E. Bateman who laid out Woodward<br />

Street. The house was built in the 1860s.<br />

(AT LEFT) Megaphone in hand, Miami View Elementary<br />

teacher Joshua Murray tells third-graders about the Houston<br />

Co. store (see picture ABOVE) that once stood at the<br />

south end of Chillicothe Street, not far from where Sunrise<br />

Cooperative now operates. The business, established in<br />

1861, sold grain, wool, groceries, hardware items, and produce.<br />

The building was torn down in 2014.<br />

Third-grade students at Miami View Elementary take a<br />

break on the steps of South Charleston United Methodist<br />

Church during a walking history tour conducted by teacher<br />

Joshua Murray. Murray informed the students that South<br />

Charleston’s Methodist congregation got its start in a small<br />

barn in 1811. The current church was built in 1912 before<br />

which a frame church stood on the site.

196 W. Center St. They purchased the business from Steve and Pamela Peterman who had owned it since 2000.<br />

They said they had been wanting to purchase a garden center, saw London Florist advertised for sale online,<br />

and decided to go for it, moving their family from Utah to London earlier this year. The <strong>Madison</strong> County Chamber<br />

of Commerce welcomed the Gillespies with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on April 26.<br />
