Green living<br />

<strong>Messenger</strong> photos by Dedra Cordle<br />

<strong>Grove</strong> <strong>City</strong> residents and guests from<br />

neighboring areas came out by the hundreds<br />

last weekend to beautify the community<br />

– and learn a few tips on how to<br />

keep it cleaner and healthier – through<br />

two Earth Day events that highlighted<br />

the importance of protecting and preserving<br />

the local environment. On the<br />

morning of April 20, dozens of people<br />

walked the parks and main thoroughfares<br />

picking up litter found in the creek<br />

beds and along the side of the roads as<br />

a part of the annual Keep <strong>Grove</strong> <strong>City</strong><br />

Beautiful Cleanup event and later that<br />

morning dozens more came out to Town<br />

Center Park to partake in educational<br />

and enjoyable activities for the entire<br />

family at EcoFest. Hosted annually by<br />

the city of <strong>Grove</strong> <strong>City</strong> and the <strong>Grove</strong> <strong>City</strong><br />

Parks and Recreation Department,<br />

EcoFest had more than two dozen agencies,<br />

businesses and organizations on<br />

site to promote greener living and environmental<br />

education and conservation.<br />

Among the vendors that were featured at<br />

the event was RecSchool, a local early<br />

childhood education program whose<br />

mission is to nurture children’s self-confidence<br />

and love of learning through<br />

play, meaningful classroom experiences<br />

and a connection to the natural world.<br />

Here, RecSchool coordinator Michele<br />

Demmy proudly displays artwork children<br />

made to commemorate the solar<br />

eclipse that took place earlier this<br />

month.<br />

One of the most popular stations at<br />

EcoFest was the ‘build-your-own backyard<br />

bird feeder’ hosted by the Gardens<br />

at Gantz Park volunteers. Right, Xavier<br />

HOTSHOTS<br />

Continued from page 1<br />

and became hooked on the game. As months passed, he<br />

grew in skill and sought new opportunities to compete<br />

in tournaments.<br />

He eventually learned of the National Pickleball<br />

League. McKnight was visited at one of the tournaments<br />

by his father, Paul McKnight, who had also<br />

begun playing recreationally. Though this is new territory,<br />

the pair have a history of investigating potential<br />

family business opportunities, and began dreaming of<br />

making something more of their newfound love of pickleball.<br />

Last year was the first year of the league and the<br />

McKnights knew it was looking to expand. They were<br />

ultimately awarded the opportunity for ownership of<br />

the Columbus Hotshots to enter the league in the coming<br />

<strong>2024</strong> season. Jeff is additionally playing on the<br />

team and will serve as general manager, something he<br />

described as a “lifelong dream.”<br />

“I hope to show people it’s a life-changing sport with<br />

many social and health benefits at really any age in<br />

life,” said McKnight.<br />

The team hopes to gain momentum throughout<br />

their first season as a respectable ambassador of the<br />

sport, particularly by Columbus itself.<br />

“We’d love to be another team in the Columbus<br />

sports landscape that produces winners and earns<br />

community support,” said McKnight.<br />

The Columbus Hotshots are composed of 14 team<br />

members who will exclusively compete in doubles.<br />

Seven men and seven women make up the roster.<br />

NPL teams are filled with the top competing champions<br />

age professional players from all across the<br />

nation, many of which make a living from their participation.<br />

The season’s tournaments will run from <strong>May</strong><br />

through October in various cities, giving a variety of<br />

crowds the opportunity to attend.<br />

June 21-23, the NPL comes to Columbus to compete<br />

at a new indoor facility, Paddle Taps, in Worthington.<br />

Community members are encouraged to attend and<br />

spending much time at the courts at Windsor Park in<br />

SWCS and OhioHealth partner for work-based program<br />

<strong>May</strong> 5, <strong>2024</strong> - GROVE CITY MESSENGER - PAGE 5<br />

OhioHealth, a nationally recognized,<br />

not-for-profit, healthcare outreach of the<br />

United Methodist Church, announces a<br />

new working relationship with South-<br />

Western <strong>City</strong> Schools to find the next generation<br />

of young talent.<br />

With the new collaboration, OhioHealth<br />

will work directly with the school district<br />

through a Work-Based Learning program,<br />

creating formal critical-roles pathways for<br />

seniors. The goal is to prepare students for<br />

roles in nursing, pharmacy, patient service<br />

associate, medical assistants and more.<br />

The program has already hired two dozen<br />

student interns from the district and other<br />

educational organizations in a Patient<br />

Support Assistant-intern (PSA-i) role.<br />

“To continue to be the leader in local<br />

healthcare, we have to be the leader in<br />

finding the best and brightest young talent,”<br />

said Mindy Sanford, OhioHealth<br />

senior advisor, workforce development<br />

partnerships and programs. “We believe<br />

with this collaboration with quality education<br />

entities, we have tapped into a young<br />

professional pipeline, with an eye to a long<br />

healthcare career, and a desire to serve our<br />

patients and live the OhioHealth mission<br />

and values that make our organization special.”<br />

Pre-nursing students will apply, interview,<br />

and have the potential to be selected<br />

into the OhioHealth program. In this program,<br />

pre-nursing students complete their<br />

state tested nursing assistant certification<br />

by the end of their junior year. The senior<br />

year will be half classwork, the other half<br />

working in their paid PSA-i role.<br />

In June, OhioHealth and Columbus<br />

State Community College announced an<br />

innovative partnership that will double the<br />

number of professionals trained in five<br />

healthcare fields, addressing a critical<br />

need for patient care specialists throughout<br />

central Ohio. As part of this new collaboration,<br />

the program will serve as a potential<br />

feeder program to the larger<br />

OhioHealth and Columbus State<br />

Community College partnership.<br />

“We are thrilled for our South-Western<br />

Career Academy (SWCA) students to partner<br />

with OhioHealth on innovative solutions<br />

to address the health care and workforce<br />

needs of our community,” said<br />

Christine Galvin, director of career-technical<br />

education at South-Western <strong>City</strong><br />

Schools District. “This relationship will<br />

provide our students with invaluable<br />

hands-on clinical experiences by allowing<br />

them to go directly from the classroom to<br />

the hospital floor. OhioHealth and South-<br />

Western <strong>City</strong> Schools have a shared focus<br />

on fostering the next generation of health<br />

care professionals for tomorrow’s workforce.<br />

As we look to double the number of<br />

graduates from our pre-nursing program<br />

heading into <strong>2024</strong>, this partnership will<br />

provide SWCA students with affordable,<br />

accessible, and sustainable career opportunities<br />

through work-based learning.”<br />

The goal is to grow this opportunity<br />

each year and continue to open the pipeline<br />

of local healthcare talent, while adding jobs<br />

Story of a<br />

Bill, Part III<br />

As I wrote in a previous communication with you<br />

in February, I introduced House Bill 364, a<br />

measure to allow the noncommercial distribution<br />

of milkweed seeds to promote monarch butterfly<br />

population growth, in the Ohio House of<br />

Representatives. The idea for the bill originated<br />

with David Donofrio, <strong>Grove</strong> <strong>City</strong> resident and vice<br />

president of the Ohio Prairie Association (OPA).<br />

As is part of the legislative process, the measure<br />

was referred to the House Agriculture Committee.<br />

HB 364 had its first hearing in the Agriculture<br />

Committee on February 6. As is customary, the<br />

first hearing was reserved for sponsor testimony,<br />

which means that the authors of the bill summarize<br />

it for committee members and answer their<br />

questions about it. The measure’s second hearing<br />

took place on Tuesday, April 23. Because no<br />

opposition to the bill has surfaced, the committee<br />

chair, Rodney Creech from Preble County, decided<br />

to schedule both proponent and<br />

opponent testimony for the same day, which is<br />

customary when no opposition is anticipated.<br />

Because a representative of the OPA answered<br />

questions during the first hearing, the only additional<br />

proponent testimony submitted for the<br />

second hearing came from conservation and<br />

gardening associations. The two written testimonies<br />

(folks have the option of presenting testimony<br />

in person or in writing) cited the<br />

assistance the measure would provide for the<br />

monarch butterfly population and that their volunteer<br />

organizations would welcome the opportunity<br />

to distribute milkweed seeds among their<br />

members. Rep. Creech cited the dozens of supportive<br />

emails he had received from folks around<br />

the state and said that he had heard not one opposing<br />

comment about the proposal.<br />

The next step in the process will be a vote by the<br />

Agriculture Committee in its next meeting, which<br />

probably will occur in early <strong>May</strong>. If approved, the<br />

bill then will proceed to the entire House for its<br />

consideration. Stay tuned for continued updates<br />

on the progress of HB364.<br />

Last week the House acted on a number of bills.<br />

The most prominent among them was HB 230, a<br />

measure that increases penalties for fentanyl trafficking,<br />

requires schools and colleges to incorporate<br />

instruction and policies on fentanyl<br />

awareness and abuse prevention, and authorizes<br />

the collection of oral fluids as evidence in OVI<br />

cases. The bill has the full support of law enforcement<br />

and is one method of combating the proliferation<br />

of this illegal drug that continues to<br />

make its way across the U.S. southern border.<br />

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

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

parts of West, Southwest, and South Columbus,<br />

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

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

Regional transportation plan discussed in <strong>Grove</strong> <strong>City</strong><br />

According to the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning<br />

Commission (MORPC), one million new residents are<br />

expected to call central Ohio home by the year 2050.<br />

More residents will mean a greater need for public<br />

transportation.<br />

“We are expecting growth but not expecting much more<br />

roadway,” said Kelsey Ellingsen, the local government<br />

affairs director with COTA, at a recent <strong>Grove</strong> <strong>City</strong> Council<br />

meeting.<br />

Ellingsen and Elliott Lewis, with MORPC, attended the<br />

council meeting to engage community stakeholders about<br />

the funding needed for future growth.<br />

“Affordability of living in central Ohio is changing,” said<br />

Ellingsen. “We have seen a 45 percent increase in the cost<br />

of housing alone since 2020. If we want our neighbors to<br />

stay our neighbors, we have to think about how we arrest<br />

the growth and those costs.”<br />

Ellingsen spoke about LinkUs, central Ohio’s comprehensive<br />

transportation initiative to help address growth,<br />

affordability, and opportunity gaps in the community. This<br />

program will create faster, more reliable public transportation<br />

through Bus Rapid Transit corridors, as well as<br />

safer and expanded bicycle and pedestrian paths.<br />

“If we are going to implement LinkUs, we are going to<br />

make historic infrastructure investments,” said Ellingsen.<br />

COTA has already planned to move forward with three<br />

corridors for the Bus Rapid Transit plan. One will run<br />

along West Broad Street from the downtown area, through<br />

the Hilltop, all the way to Prairie Township. The other two<br />

that have already been determined are East Main Street<br />

and a northwest corridor. COTA plans to choose two more<br />

corridors this summer.<br />

According to COTA, with a Bus Rapid Transit system,<br />

customers would pay fares before getting on and will no<br />

longer have to step up into the vehicle. The boarding platform<br />

will be level with the floor. This level boarding also<br />

allows riders to roll a bike into the vehicle and stow it in<br />

an on-board bike rack. Once customers are inside, the<br />

doors close. Unlike noise pollution created by most vehicles,<br />

the buses will be electric and easy on the ears. Rapid<br />

transit vehicles will zip through the region in dedicated<br />

lanes with traffic signal priority, meaning public transit<br />

will have priority at intersections.<br />

Ellingsen said this is part of an overall $8 billion revenue<br />

plan by 2050.<br />

COTA is currently funded by a 0.5 percent sales<br />

tax. The organization will be looking for federal<br />

grants as well as considering the placement of a<br />

levy on the ballot in November. Ellingsen said both<br />

Cleveland and Cincinnati have a sales tax of 1 percent<br />

for its public transportation system. Columbus<br />

would like to follow suit.<br />

There are also plans to expand the COTA Plus<br />

service, with up to 16 new zones by 2050.<br />

<strong>Grove</strong> <strong>City</strong> was COTA’s pilot partner for this<br />

program.<br />

COTA Plus was launched as a pilot program in<br />

July 2019. The shuttle service provides customers<br />

on-demand rides via a mobile app. Like other<br />

rideshare services, COTA Plus transports customers<br />

from point A to point B. The service is delivered<br />

by COTA operators using a fleet of branded,<br />

ADA-accessible vehicles. This provides customers<br />

with access to jobs, healthcare and more.<br />

“We love that <strong>Grove</strong> <strong>City</strong> brought this concept to<br />

life with us,” said Ellingsen.<br />

<strong>May</strong> 5, <strong>2024</strong> - GROVE CITY MESSENGER - PAGE 7<br />

In addition to the transportation aspect of the initiative,<br />

Lewis said MORPC is looking at a mobility initiative. He<br />

said most people cannot walk out their front door to a bus<br />

stop. They use sidewalks to get to that stop.<br />

“If there is no sidewalk or it is crumbled, that makes it<br />

more difficult for people to access public transportation,”<br />

said Lewis.<br />

According to Lewis, MORPC will be looking at 500 plus<br />

miles of safer and expanded bike and pedestrian paths<br />

throughout its coverage area. The organization is working<br />

with municipalities to identify local areas of concern.<br />

<strong>Grove</strong> <strong>City</strong> Area Chamber of Commerce<br />

To create a positive environment for the development and success of business<br />

Farmers’ Market<br />

to begin on <strong>May</strong> 11<br />

The 3<strong>5th</strong> season of the <strong>Grove</strong> <strong>City</strong> Farmers’ Market kicks off on<br />

<strong>May</strong> 11 in the Historic Town Center of <strong>Grove</strong> <strong>City</strong>.<br />

Kicking off on Mother’s Day weekend, this year’s first Market<br />

is Mother’s Day at the Market. Numerous special activities will be<br />

available including a DIY flower bouquet bar, photo ops, food<br />

trucks, and special one-day-only gift vendors just for Mother’s<br />

Day. This is all in addition to the various food and locally-made<br />

product vendors present for the spring market.<br />

This year’s market will run every Saturday with Sept. 14 being<br />

the final date for the <strong>2024</strong> season. Availability of produce will be<br />

determined by the weather and growing season of Ohio, with<br />

early season produce making an appearance, while summer<br />

favorites such as sweet corn and various melons will arrive further<br />

into summer. In total, over 90 vendors will participate at<br />

some point in this year’s Farmers’ Market. Some vendors may not<br />

be at the Market every week, but follow along on Facebook to stay<br />

up with announcements or to ask about your favorite vendors:<br />

https://www.facebook.com/grovecityfarmersmarket<br />

Many sponsors and volunteers come together to make 19<br />

weeks of this year’s Farmers’ Market possible, including presenting<br />

sponsor Mount Carmel <strong>Grove</strong> <strong>City</strong> and farm-to-table sponsor<br />

Wright-Patt Credit Union.<br />

The most up-to-date details on vendors and even a market map<br />

can be found on the Market’s website:<br />

GCACC supports Logan County tornado relief<br />

The <strong>Grove</strong> <strong>City</strong> Area Chamber of Commerce and greater <strong>Grove</strong><br />

<strong>City</strong> community came together on short notice to support Logan<br />

County communities impacted by the late February tornadoes.<br />

Quickly, this effort came together with the help of the<br />

Chamber’s partners within the city of <strong>Grove</strong> <strong>City</strong> and at E.E.<br />

Ward Moving and Storage. E.E. Ward served as a donation dropoff<br />

site (in addition to the Chamber’s own office/garage here on<br />

Broadway) and additionally contributed the time, labor, and a<br />

truck for delivering all collected items.<br />

With just a few days to both promote the donation drive, and<br />

collect donations, the response was an unknown but hopes were<br />

high for filling the truck that would head north by the end of the<br />

week.<br />

To put it simply, <strong>Grove</strong> <strong>City</strong> showed up for Logan County!<br />

Contributions of all sizes came from all sorts of places as the community<br />

banded together to take care of another community as if<br />

they were our own. But we are all Ohioans after all.<br />

The Chamber would like to extend a big thank you to everyone<br />

who contributed. It’s so encouraging to see our community come<br />

together in support of a cause, in this case another Ohio community.

By Sarah Hann<br />

Caroline Shroyer is no stranger to the<br />

<strong>Grove</strong> <strong>City</strong> Area Chamber of Commerce<br />

having previously served on the Chamber<br />

Board, as Board President for a term, and<br />

as a Chamber Ambassador.<br />

And, if by chance Caroline is a stranger<br />

to you, she won’t be one for long if given the<br />

chance. In our hour-long lunchtime chat I<br />

felt as if I’d known her for much longer as<br />

we covered everything from Chamber<br />

involvement, professional lives and mutual<br />

acquaintances.<br />

Caroline’s journey with the GCACC<br />

began earlier in the 2000s when she found<br />

herself running the former <strong>Grove</strong> <strong>City</strong> Tree<br />

Service business. With a background in<br />

real estate (her current career field), running<br />

a tree and landscape business was a<br />

whole new ballgame but she wasn’t without<br />

a game plan or a next step.<br />

“I just walked right into the Chamber!”<br />

Caroline recalled of how she first joined<br />

and got involved with the GCACC by simply<br />

walking in the front door of the office on<br />

Broadway.<br />

Eventually Caroline’s professional side<br />

of membership pivoted as she re-entered<br />

real estate in 2015 and then sold <strong>Grove</strong><br />

<strong>City</strong> Tree Service in 2017. But even as her<br />

professional life had changes, her commitment<br />

and involvement with the Chamber<br />

didn’t change. Caroline served as the<br />

GCACC’s Board President in 2016. While<br />

she no longer serves on the board, she can<br />

still be spotted at events and keeps a pulse<br />

on what’s happening in the GCACC.<br />

Real Estate Life<br />

Since her re-entry to real estate,<br />

Caroline has built up her own team with<br />

Keller Williams, The Shroyer Group, and<br />

works her business full time. With a<br />

repeat-and-referral mode of business,<br />

Caroline maintains relationships with her<br />

past clients; even if they personally may<br />

never need a realtor again, they’re still<br />

likely to pass along Caroline’s name.<br />

Caroline has seen waves of new home<br />

owners and has had the pleasure of working<br />

with and guiding them to the home<br />

that’s the right fit for them.<br />

“It’s so rewarding when you get to see<br />

someone get the keys to their first house.”<br />

In addition to her clients, Caroline takes<br />

care of and supports her team by coaching<br />

them to achieve their goals. Coaching her<br />

team “feeds a need to educate” as she<br />

works with individuals to meet their next<br />

goals. As with any goal, accountability is<br />

key and Caroline is willing to step into the<br />

role. She’ll reach out to team members to<br />

check in on their progress toward a recently-stated<br />

goal. And, to keep herself on<br />

track, Caroline too has someone she counts<br />

as her accountability partner when working<br />

on her own goals and tasks.<br />

“I like to help people grow,” she said of<br />

her enjoyment of coaching.<br />

Giving Back<br />

Pages could be filled about our conversation<br />

that covered many corners of giving<br />

back, from the little-but-big things that<br />

pull our heartstrings (homeless shelters<br />

www.columbusmessenger.com<br />

Meet Caroline, community realtor<br />

Caroline Shroyer<br />

love candles and wash cloths), to focusing<br />

online “retail therapy” in support of community<br />

groups instead of ourselves (buy<br />

from a non-profit’s wish list instead of your<br />

300th drink cup or mug). If you’ve already<br />

read our “Non-Profit Spotlight” piece in<br />

this issue of Chamber Business<br />

Connection, then you’ve gotten a taste of<br />

Caroline’s passion for serving the community<br />

and spreading that love.<br />

“The Shroyer Group Gives Back” is the<br />

name for Caroline’s team’s many community<br />

outreach initiatives. They’ve partnered<br />

with groups for winter coat/hat/mitten drives<br />

and school supplies collections. Just<br />

about anything to serve the community<br />

goes, and team members are encouraged to<br />

find an initiative that excites them and<br />

jump in to serve.<br />

While a few community outreach events<br />

or activities went dormant during the pandemic,<br />

Caroline is excited each time another<br />

returns to its pre- 2020 version.<br />

Organizations that rely on in-person volunteers<br />

are back to operating ‘like normal’<br />

but likely need more volunteers than<br />

before due to increased need.<br />

Her team, her clients, and her community<br />

all benefit from Caroline’s energy and<br />

passion for the many ways she serves others.<br />

From leading the Chamber board, to<br />

maintaining client connections, and organizing<br />

community efforts, she clearly doesn’t<br />

do something ‘halfway’.<br />

“If I’m in, I’m all the way in!”<br />

3 Tips for Newer<br />

Members/Businesses<br />

We asked Caroline for three things<br />

she’d tell the newest Chamber members,<br />

what she’d say to someone who just walked<br />

right into the office as she did years ago.<br />

Here’s her three:<br />

1) Know your target customer–who is<br />

going to buy your product or use your service?<br />

Determine this then target your marketing<br />

efforts toward them.<br />

2) “Don’t think an idea is too out of the<br />

box.” Think outside the box, but then act on<br />

those outside-the-box ideas instead of casting<br />

them aside or writing them off.<br />

3) Get involved with the community!<br />

Get involved with the Chamber and leverage<br />

and make use of every opportunity.<br />

“That was a good move on my part.”

Caring and teaching <strong>Grove</strong> <strong>City</strong>’s next generation<br />

Meet Kiddie Academy, one of the many<br />

businesses who now call <strong>Grove</strong> <strong>City</strong> home,<br />

or one of their homes. While Kiddie<br />

Academy has locations across the US (and<br />

in Hawaii!), each location is unique to its<br />

town. We met up with some of the team<br />

behind Kiddie Academy, who have expansive<br />

experience in education, childcare, and<br />

even Kiddie Academy itself.<br />

The business<br />

Brand new to <strong>Grove</strong> <strong>City</strong> (right down to<br />

the building), Kiddie Academy on Buckeye<br />

Parkway opened its doors for children in<br />

late January, and in mid-March celebrated<br />

their new business.<br />

Mahmudur Rahman, along with his<br />

wife, bring ample business and Kiddie<br />

Academy experience to <strong>Grove</strong> <strong>City</strong>’s location.<br />

The couple began their Kiddie<br />

Academy owner/operator journey 16 years<br />

ago in establishing the Lewis Center location,<br />

the first in the Midwest.<br />

Mahmudur told us at that time he and<br />

his wife were looking to change careers<br />

from engineering and education respectively,<br />

and jumping into business would be<br />

their next move. In determining what kind<br />

of business they would open or operate,<br />

they remembered Kiddie Academy from<br />

their days of living and working in New<br />

York. With the franchise model, they could<br />

open a location of a business they were<br />

familiar with and bring it to a new part of<br />

the country.<br />

Owner Wahida Sultana is newer to this<br />

role in business but is certainly no stranger<br />

to the care and nurturing of children as<br />

education has essentially been her life’s<br />

work. She’s taught in public schools and<br />

began her career in education teaching preschool.<br />

Wahida is soaking in this new<br />

avenue of education as she continues to<br />

connect with families and children, with a<br />

smile she says she only misses ‘the breaks’<br />

from the public school system.<br />

Teachers don’t go forgotten at Kiddie<br />

Academy between the support from location<br />

leadership, to the parents and children.<br />

Mahmudur discussed how teachers<br />

with Kiddie Academy will receive training<br />

specific to their curriculum to aid them in<br />

carrying out their daily work. He noted it<br />

can be challenging to hire and retain teachers,<br />

making it important to make sure<br />

teachers have what they need and feel<br />

appreciated.<br />

“Make sure each one is happy,” he said<br />

of ensuring teachers, and parents, are satisfied<br />

with Kiddie Academy.<br />

As Mahmudur mentioned and then<br />

Wahida showed us, bulletin boards allow<br />

space for sharing teacher recognition submitted<br />

by parents. Some may come in the<br />

form of an email or message sent from the<br />

parent, other times it might be a note of a<br />

compliment a parent provided in person or<br />

over the phone.<br />

Kiddie Academy <strong>Grove</strong> <strong>City</strong> continues to<br />

hire as it continues to grow in numbers as<br />

word gets around of the care and education<br />

they provide. Mahmudur estimates they’ll<br />

have created 25-30 jobs once they are closer<br />

to or at capacity for children, which is<br />

just over 150.<br />

The education & childcare experience<br />

Kiddie Academy has its own developmentally-appropriate<br />

curriculum for the<br />

varying age groups of children they serve<br />

(as young as six weeks and as old as age 12<br />

for after school care). With plenty of handson<br />

learning, children will grow in independence,<br />

develop and fine-tune motor skills,<br />

and grow in experience with the other children.<br />

Assorted enrichment classes are avail-<br />

See KIDDIE ACADEMY page 13<br />

Now Enrolling<br />

We offer Summer Camp and programs for<br />

Kiddie Academy of <strong>Grove</strong> <strong>City</strong><br />

facility that is Now Open!<br />

Conveniently located in front of the<br />

Target on Buckeye Parkway.

able that focus in on specific areas such as<br />

art or music. Specialty days are also available,<br />

such as the recent STEM event.<br />

Kiddie Academy’s team all looks forward to<br />

warmer weather where special guests can<br />

visit and learning expand into the community.<br />

Kiddie Academy makes use of technology<br />

available and utilizes the Tadpole app.<br />

This app serves as another connection<br />

between teachers and parents, allowing<br />

teachers to share updates and other notifications.<br />

During our visit, the parents who<br />

came still engaged in good, old-fashioned<br />

face-to-face conversation with their child’s<br />

teacher and even Wahida herself.<br />

Health and safety are paramount at<br />

Kiddie Academy. Teachers and staff are up<br />

to date on health policies and trainings,<br />

and the buildings and outdoor grounds feature<br />

assorted safety features. Features<br />

range from ‘buzzing in’ to visit, how to<br />

access the play area, and even safe surfaces<br />

and structures of play equipment.<br />

Blending health with child development<br />

is meal time. Kiddie Academy includes two<br />

snacks and lunch. But, it’s not just “what”<br />

children eat, but also “how”. Mahmudur<br />

and Wahida shared that children ages<br />

three and up will dine family style with<br />

their peers. This allows children to learn<br />

how to serve themselves, make food choices,<br />

and is ample opportunity to work on<br />

table manners.<br />

From the dining table, to the classroom<br />

space, to the playground, children enrolled<br />

in the future, and the children already in<br />

attendance at <strong>Grove</strong> <strong>City</strong>’s Kiddie Academy<br />

foster new friendships and building life<br />

skills that will serve them well for their elementary<br />

school years and beyond. We<br />

closed out our visit and chat with Wahida<br />

out on the playground as a pre-school aged<br />

group enjoyed the surprise March sunshine.<br />

As it was time for one child to head<br />

home, the group all exchanged goodbyes<br />

and their eagerness to play again another<br />

day.<br />

And then the departing youngster called<br />

back “Bye friends!” displaying the skills<br />

and friendships developed at Kiddie<br />

Academy in just two words.<br />

PRIDE Soccer Club (PSC) is thrilled to be<br />

celebrating 20 years of developing soccer players<br />

a more professionally organized, competitive<br />

and developmentally focused youth soccer<br />

club in the Canal Winchester area. Over the last<br />

20 years, PSC has become one of the most successful<br />

and respected clubs in Ohio, developing<br />

teams that have excelled at the State and<br />

Regional levels in addition to producing hundreds<br />

of Collegiate level players. PSC has over<br />

600 players on 40 different teams, ages 6-18.<br />

How do I register and get more information?<br />

with 3 times as many training opportunities.<br />

Where are training/games?<br />

PSC trains and hosts home games in Canal<br />

The Housing Report<br />

Is Out<br />

As Chair of the Senate Select Committee on<br />

Housing, I am pleased to announce the release of<br />

our official Housing Report. As of April 17, the<br />

digital copy of our comprehensive 94-page<br />

report is now available for download on the<br />

Senate's website in PDF format under the meetings<br />

tab.<br />

The Senate Select Committee on Housing (SSCH)<br />

was commissioned by Sen. President Matt Huffman<br />

to address Ohio's housing challenges. Since<br />

its inception in August 2023, the SSCH has<br />

conducted extensive research, including 12 livestreamed<br />

meetings across Ohio, hearing over 35<br />

hours of testimony from more than 200<br />

witnesses. Through this process, we gained<br />

valuable insights into Ohio's housing landscape<br />

and the challenges it faces.<br />

The report represents the voices of Ohioans<br />

statewide and offers a framework for future<br />

housing policy discussions. It highlights the<br />

complexity of Ohio's housing challenges, ranging<br />

from economic, social and policy factors and how<br />

it impacts both urban and rural areas and the<br />

need for affordable housing solutions across the<br />

state. Our recommendations, outlined in the<br />

report, emphasize a multifaceted approach to<br />

address Ohio's housing challenges.<br />

These include strategies to increase the supply of<br />

available, affordable and accessible homes. Moreover,<br />

the report underscores the importance of<br />

bipartisan collaboration, recognizing that housing<br />

affordability is a humanitarian issue that transcends<br />

political divides. I extend my gratitude to<br />

all who contributed to this endeavor, including<br />

fellow Senators, legislative aides, witnesses,<br />

stakeholders, and constituents.<br />

The report's executive summary and recommendations<br />

are available starting on page 84, highlighting<br />

key initiatives such as the Ohio Housing<br />

Dashboard, Ohio Housing Toolkit, Third Party<br />

Reviewer Services, Ohio Housing Accelerator,<br />

Ohio YIMBY Campaign, and Ohio Housing Capacity<br />

Building Grant Fund.<br />

Results Matter, so be sure to read the recommendations<br />

in the report. Stay connected to my office by<br />

“e Greatest Hits,” an ode to the power of music<br />

I say this knowing I will sound like a<br />

flower child who just got back from a weeklong<br />

festival out in the desert, but I believe<br />

that music is one of the closest things we<br />

have to magic in this world. Just think<br />

about it for a minute. How many times<br />

have you heard a specific lyric, note, or<br />

song and were immediately transported<br />

back into a particular period — or a moment<br />

— in your life? For better or worse, music<br />

has the ability to unlock a part of our brain<br />

and allow us to relive that day and experience<br />

the emotions as if it were happening<br />

all over again.<br />

In the new romantic fantasy film, “The<br />

Greatest Hits,” writer and director Ned<br />

Benson takes the occasionally wistful<br />

music-induced jump into the past and<br />

treats it literally, creating a world in which<br />

the lead character can travel back in time<br />

to see their recently deceased partner at<br />

the drop of a needle on a vinyl record. It is<br />

a premise that admittedly sounds rather<br />

corny but the movie mostly works because<br />

it is an earnest exploration of grief, love,<br />

and our efforts to move on after heartbreak.<br />

The film begins with a vivid montage of<br />

long-time partners Harriet (Lucy Boynton)<br />

and her boyfriend Max (David Corenswet)<br />

that captures their most blissful moments<br />

together. We see them frolicking on the<br />

beach with their sweet and scruffy dog,<br />

playing card games when inclement weather<br />

keeps them inside, spending lazy days<br />

snuggled up on the couch or in bed, and<br />

attending numerous concerts together<br />

because they share a love of music. This<br />

idyllic sequence is swiftly interrupted by<br />

the muffled sound of crunching metal and<br />

then it transitions into a blank-faced<br />

Harriet curled up on the couch alone in a<br />

dimly lit apartment, staring at a bulletin<br />

board with dozens of pictures of her and<br />

Max together in happier times, the time<br />

when he was alive.<br />

Upon closer examination of the material<br />

in the room, we see there is something different<br />

about the bulletin board and the<br />

dimly lit apartment. Scattered across the<br />

floor are dozens of crates of vinyl records<br />

marked ‘tested’ and ‘untested’ and pinned<br />

across the bulletin board are strings and<br />

sticky-notes full of scribbles. It looks like<br />

something a conspiracy theorist would<br />

have when trying to link ideas together,<br />

but we soon discover the reason for her<br />

apparent descent into madness.<br />

During the car accident that took Max’s<br />

life, Harriet was injured and spent six days<br />

in a coma. The traumatic brain injury she<br />

sustained somehow rewired her synapses<br />

and she can now travel back in time to<br />

relive moments of her relationship with<br />

Max — but only when she hears the specific<br />

lyrics, notes, or songs that are attached to<br />

In Entertainment<br />

those memories. Sounds romantic, right?<br />

Well, not so much.<br />

In the two years since Max died and<br />

Harriet gained the ability to time travel,<br />

she has become both obsessive and reclusive.<br />

In addition to constantly playing the<br />

records that will allow her to dip into the<br />

past, she has become obsessed with the<br />

theory that there are songs out there that<br />

could change his fate. At the same time,<br />

she is terrified to venture outside of her<br />

apartment because hearing a specific lyric,<br />

note or song could propel her into the past<br />

and cause her harm in the present.<br />

Since she knows her life has become<br />

extremely unhealthy — a fact that her best<br />

friend Morris (Austin Crute) repeatedly<br />

points out to her — she has started to attend<br />

grief support meetings to try to come to<br />

terms with her sorrow and the guilt associated<br />

with her inability to alter Max’s<br />

death. While there, she meets a kind and<br />

sweet man named David (Justin H. Min)<br />

who tries to help her see that life can be<br />

good again even with all the heartbreak<br />

and tragedies. Although we know that the<br />

budding relationship between Harriet and<br />

David is doomed from the start, Boynton<br />

and Min have such great chemistry together<br />

that it makes this romantic dramedy<br />

even more bittersweet.<br />

As with most other time traveling<br />

movies, there are a few inconsistencies<br />

The Reel Deal<br />

Dedra Cordle<br />

with the rules but<br />

“The Greatest Hits”<br />

does manage to provide<br />

simple explanations<br />

of the mechanisms<br />

and how conceivably<br />

Harriet<br />

could save Max’s<br />

life. Some have argued that the continued<br />

attempts to alter the past goes against the<br />

overarching message of grief being temporary<br />

but I found that it fits into the mindset<br />

of the lead character.<br />

“The Greatest Hits” is only streaming on<br />

Hulu as of right now — occasionally physical<br />

copies of original films on streaming<br />

platforms will end up in the library system<br />

— but if you ever get the opportunity to<br />

watch this movie, please do. It has a unique<br />

premise, charming and effective performances<br />

and is a serene love letter to our<br />

brain’s relationship with music.<br />

Pets of the week<br />

Ace is a 4-year-old<br />

smooth coat fox terrier<br />

mix. He enjoys<br />

playing in the yard<br />

and riding shotgun in<br />

the car. He is always<br />

up for an adventure.<br />

His favorite toy is a<br />

lamb that he takes to<br />

bed with him. Ace is<br />

housebroken and likes other dogs, however,<br />

he does chase cats who won’t stand up to<br />

him. He is up for adoption through Colony<br />

Cats and Dogs.<br />

FYI: colonycats.org<br />

Bullet is a 7-yearold,<br />

130-pound black<br />

lab mix (aka Big<br />

Bertha). She enjoys<br />

sunbathing in the<br />

yard and riding in the<br />

car. She prefers to sit<br />

on the sofa with her<br />

humans and will stare<br />

at you until you make<br />

room for her. This<br />

gentle giant is housebroken and likes other<br />

dogs. Bullet and Ace were surrendered<br />

together by their owner who became homeless<br />

when his wife passed away. They can be<br />

adopted together or separate.<br />

FYI: colonycats.org<br />

These furry friends are available<br />

for adoption at local<br />

rescues and shelters<br />

Tiger Boy (Tigger), 2<br />

years old, is a very<br />

sweet, fun loving,<br />

playful, and goofy cat.<br />

He may lose his balance<br />

at times but that<br />

doesn’t slow him<br />

down. He has been<br />

around other cats and<br />

dogs so he is very<br />

social. He always<br />

wants your attention<br />

and is ready to give<br />

love. Adopt Tiger Boy from Friends for Life<br />

Animal Haven.<br />

FYI: fflah.org<br />

Mila has a playful<br />

spirit, good manners<br />

and a soft spot for<br />

children. She is gentle,<br />

patient and always<br />

ready to join in the<br />

fun. Mila’s eyes light<br />

up at the mere hint of<br />

a tennis ball, and her<br />

readiness to play is<br />

guaranteed to turn<br />

any ordinary day into an adventure. Mila has<br />

matched well with calm, confident dogs. Stop<br />

by the Franklin County Adoption Center to<br />

meet Mila.<br />
