CW Council places moratorium<br />

on marijuana dispensaries<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

<strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> City Council is calling<br />

a short-term moratorium on adult-use<br />

cannabis dispensaries, cultivators, and<br />

processors until the end of the year while<br />

the state finalizes its own rules following<br />

passage of State Issue 2 in 2023.<br />

During council’s <strong>May</strong> 6 work session,<br />

<strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> Law Director Thaddeus<br />

Boggs said the state is in its rulemaking<br />

and licensing process. Medical marijuana<br />

use is prohibited as a matter of city zoning.<br />

“The thought being letting that play its<br />

course before opening up <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong><br />

to potentially those businesses was at least<br />

a path to consider,” said Boggs. “It is only<br />

for businesses. The personal cultivation<br />

and use provisions in State Issue 2 are<br />

written in a way that local governments<br />

cannot deviate from what that permits.”<br />

<strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> Development<br />

Director Lucas Haire said the city has little<br />

vacant commercial space and the cannabis<br />

business is not something his department<br />

is cultivating for development.<br />

“We believe there will be a number of<br />

applications in the <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> zip<br />

code based on conversations I’ve had with<br />

potential applicants,” said Haire. “So, it<br />

will not be in the city of <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong>,<br />

but in the <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> zip code.”<br />

According to Boggs, the state is moving<br />

forward with the rulemaking process<br />

according to what was passed by voters on<br />

the ballot and he expects the state to have<br />

licenses ready to go by August or<br />

September.<br />

In two years, the state will evaluate<br />

whether or not to issue additional licenses<br />

and if so, how many.<br />

The city resolution on the eight-month<br />

moratorium was unanimously passed during<br />

council’s regular meeting following the<br />

work session.<br />

Public speaking<br />

Wheels of government moved swiftly<br />

after a citizen suggestion earlier this year<br />

that council only ask for names of individuals<br />

wanting to speak during the public<br />

comments portion of the agenda.<br />

Dental plaque is invisible to the<br />

human eye. In order to remove<br />

plaque, we have to see it. We can<br />

make the invisible - visible with a<br />

disclosing agent, usually a red<br />

dye, that stains bacteria. You can<br />

buy it at any pharmacy. Apply it<br />

with a Q-tip (after you brush and<br />

floss). Paint the edge of your gum<br />

where it meets the teeth. Move<br />

the Q-tip along, up and down, following<br />

the gumline. Now rinse<br />

and look to see where the stain is.<br />

Then brush and floss again. You’ll<br />

notice that although brushing removes<br />

some of the stain at the direct<br />

edge of the gum, it did not<br />

get it all BETWEEN<br />

get into these areas to remove<br />

bacteria. Brushing won’t. That’s<br />

why flossing is so important.<br />

Do this disclosing daily at first<br />

until you really know your mouth<br />

and later three times a week. You<br />

really won’t know if you’ve effectively<br />

removed plaque if you don’t<br />

CW seeks residents’ input<br />

on communications survey<br />

The city of <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> is seeking feedback<br />

from residents within corporation limits to learn what<br />

the community thinks about communication from the<br />

local government. Residents are asked to complete the<br />

survey by June 1.<br />

The survey was drafted by a working group that<br />

included staff and city council members. Eight questions<br />

aim to evaluate the communication residents<br />

receive from the city, including what sources are preferred<br />

and what departments residents seek information<br />

from. A few open-ended questions allow residents<br />

to share input on areas of improvement. The digital<br />

survey is available on the city website. Paper copies<br />

are available in City Hall as well.<br />

“This survey gives us an opportunity to take the pulse<br />

of the community, and to see what we are doing well and<br />

what we could do better,” said <strong>May</strong>or Joe Steager.<br />

“Residents have my pledge that we will analyze the<br />

responses and use them as guidelines for our communication<br />

to the community in the years to come.”<br />

When survey responses have been received, results<br />

will be tabulated and analyzed, and recommendations<br />

will be made for future planning. The results are<br />

expected to be available to the public this summer.<br />

Council President Will Bennett added, “I strongly<br />

encourage all residents to complete this survey. Our<br />

results will only be as good as the quality and variety<br />

of responses we get from our residents.”<br />

Any questions about the survey, the process, or<br />

results can be directed to Hannah Woodruff, events &<br />

communications coordinator for the city of <strong>Canal</strong><br />

<strong>Winchester</strong> at 614-834-9915 or hwoodruff@canalwinchesterohio.gov.<br />

Addressing speeding concerns in a letter to council,<br />

resident Paula Jarvis wrote, “I believe it would be in<br />

the best interest of public safety for East Waterloo<br />

Street and Trine Street to become a three-way stop<br />

like what was recently put in place at East Waterloo<br />

and Washington. The factors that have built up over<br />

time to create this problem can only get more intense<br />

going forward, so please consider and approve a threeway<br />

top at East Waterloo and Trine.”<br />

Councilwoman Jill Amos said she is not opposed to<br />

putting a stop sign at the intersection and said local<br />

residents call the area an internal freeway because of<br />

speeding.<br />

Obetz’s Lancaster Park<br />

www.columbusmessenger.com<br />

The City of Obetz is embarking on an exciting project<br />

to revitalize Lancaster Park, a cornerstone project<br />

for <strong>2024</strong>, which also includes a new name for the park.<br />

City of Obetz officials want Obetz residents to be a<br />

part of renaming the park. with a new name that captures<br />

the spirit of Obetz and resonates with the community.<br />

Residents are invited to participate in a two-stage<br />

survey at obetz.oh.us to select the park’s new name.<br />

Take the survey by <strong>May</strong> 15, to submit your ideas for<br />

the new park name.<br />

The city is aiming for a name that reflects Obetz’s<br />

history and character, so avoid anything silly or offensive.<br />

City staff will compile the suggestions and present<br />

the top five contenders in a second survey launching on<br />

<strong>May</strong> 20 and closing on <strong>May</strong> 31.<br />

The combined results of the resident vote and a single<br />

vote from the mayor and each Obetz City Council<br />

member will determine the park’s official new name.<br />

<strong>May</strong>or Angela Kirk will announce the final selection<br />

after the vote at the city council meeting on June 10.<br />

The park revitalization project extends beyond the<br />

name change. Improvements being made include:<br />

anew pickleball complex, new cornhole boards, and<br />

permanent game tables for ongoing community enjoyment.<br />

Pedestrian hit<br />

Downtown merchant Bruna Brundige told council a<br />

woman was recently hit by a car in front of the<br />

Cornersmiths door at the intersection of Waterloo and<br />

High streets. The accident was witnessed by the store’s<br />

owner and her daughter.<br />

“It’s the second time a car has jumped the curb,”<br />

said Brundige. “This time it was tragic. We are dreadfully<br />

close to the front of car bumpers and they seem to<br />

be jumping there. How man pedestrians at any one<br />

time are at that corner?”<br />

Brundige acknowledged the city has a comprehensive<br />

plan in place to improve the intersection, however,<br />

she asked if it is possible for the city to take another<br />

look at its plans.<br />

“Look at other communities and how they’re putting<br />

in stops for cars,” said Brundige. “See if we can prevent<br />

the inevitable.”


Memorial Day observances<br />

www.columbusmessenger.com<br />

By Rick Palsgrove<br />

Managing Editor<br />

Memorial Day is a solemn and moving<br />

tradition for Americans - whether they live<br />

in big cities, small towns, or the countryside<br />

- dating back to the day’s origins in the<br />

post-Civil War period.<br />

Each Memorial Day is special in its own<br />

right as we pay respects to the fallen as<br />

flags gently flutter by each tombstone and<br />

flowers grace the graves.<br />

Time rolls on. Memories of some things<br />

in life may fade, but not the memory of the<br />

sacrifices made by these, our honored fallen<br />

members of the military.<br />

Memorial Day endures and is an elegant,<br />

dignified reminder to us all of the profound<br />

sacrifices made by members of our communities<br />

in service to their country.<br />

After your local Memorial Day ceremony<br />

concludes and the crowd drifts away, linger<br />

for awhile in the cemetery. Walk around<br />

and read the names on the grave stones.<br />

Absorb the ever present silence of the flag<br />

decorated graves of the soldiers resting<br />

there and the silence of the flower covered<br />

graves of generations of others buried<br />

there. Remember those who rest in the<br />

cemetery were once like us - laughing, loving,<br />

living - giving their all every day to<br />

better their community and country.<br />

Always remember.<br />

Power Ranger program powers up!<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Hamilton Township High School’s<br />

Power Rangers are not found in flashy costumes<br />

fighting evildoers, but in classrooms<br />

and the Ohio Statehouse, leading the way<br />

for fellow students and paving the way for<br />

a better and more informed community.<br />

“The Powers Rangers are a group of<br />

emerging student leaders in our building,”<br />

said group advisor Holly Heaton. “About<br />

three years ago, our now principal, Matt<br />

O’Hearn, thought the Leader In Me program<br />

through Franklin County was a great<br />

opportunity for our students to hone their<br />

leadership skills. He asked me and two<br />

other teachers if we would be the ones to<br />

head up this program and teach our students<br />

about leadership attributes and qualities<br />

that would ultimately benefit them in<br />

their current and future lives.”<br />

Members of the group meet every day<br />

for a class period. They plan school events,<br />

devise solutions to problems, and serve as<br />

the voice of students within the high<br />

school.<br />

Organizers felt a program was needed<br />

where students could be stars and shape<br />

what the school looks like, feels like, and<br />

sounds like. The Power Rangers hosted two<br />

pep rallies this year–one during homecoming<br />

and another promoting the annual<br />

Vince Payne Autism Game during the basketball<br />

season.<br />

“One of the events we are most proud of<br />

was an assembly we called The Hammys,”<br />

said Heaton. “It was a positive awards<br />

assembly meant to shine a spotlight on students<br />

in the building who are always doing<br />

the right thing. We made it an award show<br />

with a red carpet, a literal spotlight, and<br />

actual awards that came in envelopes. It<br />

was wildly successful! Our student body<br />

Hamilton Township High School<br />

<strong>2024</strong> graduation to be at World Harvest<br />

After multiple surveys completed by Hamilton Township High<br />

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

ceremony for the Class of <strong>2024</strong> will be held at World Harvest<br />

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

The graduation ceremony will be held <strong>May</strong> 21 at 7 p.m.<br />

Four the past four years commencement was held at Fortress<br />

Obetz.<br />

According to Hamilton Local Schools officials, one of the primary<br />

reasons for the change is to eliminate the stress and uncertainty<br />

caused by weather-related reschedules.<br />

By moving the event indoors the ceremony can be held rain or<br />

shine. Holding the commencement at World Harvest Church provides<br />

time for families to plan, make necessary arrangements, and<br />

ensure that no one misses this significant event in the lives of our<br />

graduates.<br />

Hamilton Local Schools held graduation ceremonies at World<br />

Harvest prior to the COVID-19 pandemic for five years.<br />

Lockbourne Council<br />

Lockbourne Village Council meets the second and fourth<br />

Mondays of each month at 7 p.m. at the Lockbourne Event Center,<br />

206 Vause St., Lockbourne.<br />

really enjoyed it. Students who are maybe<br />

not featured as often as others had the<br />

opportunity to be seen and celebrated by<br />

the entire student body. It was an incredible<br />

response.”<br />

In addition, Powers Rangers also visit<br />

AIM (homeroom) classes every week to lead<br />

fellow students through activities that foster<br />

leadership skills and constructive collaboration.<br />

Power Rangers develop lesson<br />

plans and activities and execute them<br />

every week using teachers as a support system.<br />

Earlier this year, a few Power Rangers,<br />

members of the Student Inclusion Council<br />

of the Tuskegee Airmen.<br />

“We have built a strong relationship<br />

with the Ohio Memorial Chapter of<br />

to bring awareness for a worthy<br />

cause.<br />

“They’ve been instrumental in amplifying<br />

Ranger pride for our sporting events<br />

and have helped to shine a spotlight on the<br />

amazing qualities our students possess,”<br />

said Heaton. “The Power Rangers are true<br />

student leaders who are crucial in making<br />

our school the best place it could be.”<br />

Students are selected for the Power<br />

“It is important that the group be representative<br />

of our diverse student population,<br />

so that also is taken into consideration,”<br />

Heaton said. “Ultimately, the students chosen<br />

to be Power Rangers exemplify leadership.<br />

They are role models. They care. They<br />

work hard. They already have demonstrated<br />

that they possess those skills, and we<br />

seek to enhance those skills through the<br />

program.”<br />

The Leadership<br />

of the Ohio<br />

House of<br />

Representatives<br />

Managing the legislative work that gets completed<br />

by the Ohio House of Representatives takes a hierarchy<br />

of leadership. In a previous column, I described<br />

the responsibilities of our House Speaker,<br />

Jason Stephens of Lawrence County. He presides<br />

over the legislature during our meetings, directs<br />

legislative procedures, and appoints committee<br />

chairs and members. Today I will describe the<br />

remaining House officers and summarize their<br />

responsibilities.<br />

The Speaker Pro Tempore becomes the temporary<br />

Speaker in the absence of the Speaker. The position<br />

for this General Assembly is held by Scott Oelslager<br />

of Canton, a 34-year veteran of the legislature.<br />

The Majority Floor Leader (or, simply, Majority<br />

Leader) develops and implements the legislative<br />

agenda of the majority (Republican) caucus. Bill<br />

Seitz of Cincinnati, a 20-plus year legislator, currently<br />

holds that position. The Assistant Majority<br />

Leader assists the Majority Leader in these endeavors.<br />

Jon Cross of Findlay fills this position.<br />

The Majority Whip is Jim Hoops, a third-term legislator<br />

from the northwest corner of Ohio. He is responsible<br />

for monitoring legislation and securing<br />

votes for a given bill’s passage. It’s been my experience<br />

thus far that he keeps a pulse of each representative’s<br />

support (or lack thereof) of a measure,<br />

rather than tries to persuade support. I never have<br />

been instructed to do anything but vote my conscience<br />

on any bill; the Whip simply keeps track of<br />

intended votes. The Assistant Majority Whip is<br />

Sharon Ray of Medina. The term Whip originated in<br />

the Parliament of Great Britain and derives from the<br />

”whipper-in” at a fox hunt.<br />

The leadership of the minority party (Democratic)<br />

caucus consists of the Minority and Assistant Minority<br />

Floor Leader and the Minority and Assistant Minority<br />

Whip. Their roles are similar to those of their<br />

majority counterparts. The current Minority Leader<br />

is Allison Russo of Upper Arlington, and the Assistant<br />

Minority Leader is Dontavius Jarrells of Columbus,<br />

whose district abuts ours on the north and east.<br />

The Minority Whip is Dani Isaacsohn of Cincinnati<br />

(the only freshman legislator in leadership) and the<br />

Assistant Minority Whip is Michele Grim of Toledo.<br />

Although the entire House votes on all the leadership<br />

positions, legislators typically (but not always)<br />

defer to their respective party selections, especially<br />

for the Leader and Whip positions. The current<br />

make-up of the House is 67 Republicans and 32<br />

Democrats. The Senate manages itself similarly.<br />

There are 26 Republican and 7 Democratic Senators<br />

in the 135th General Assembly.<br />

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

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

West, <strong>South</strong>west, and <strong>South</strong> Columbus, Grove City,<br />

Urbancrest, and portions of Franklin and Jackson<br />

Townships. He reports regularly on his activities in this<br />

position and his campaign has paid for this communication<br />

Performing Arts Collective seeks to thrive in CW<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

The <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> Performing Arts<br />

Collective, comprised of 60 performers<br />

spread across three components–a steel<br />

pan band, community choir and theatrical<br />

performers–is gearing up for its first combined<br />

performance on <strong>May</strong> 19 at 6:30 p.m.<br />

at David’s United Church of Christ, 80 W.<br />

Columbus St, <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong>.<br />

The event is part of the steel pan band’s<br />

annual Spring Jam Concert. Joining the<br />

musicians for the first time are the<br />

<strong>Winchester</strong> Voices and the <strong>Winchester</strong><br />

Street Theatre Group.<br />

“Our performances have a wide variety<br />

of music,” said <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong><br />

Performing Arts Collective Director Todd<br />

Phillips, who brought his dream of the collective<br />

to fruition after retiring from the<br />

local school system. “Most people think of<br />

steel drums of island party music. Of<br />

course, there are songs that fit that<br />

description. We also have pieces that are<br />

more classical sounding, jazz and a variety<br />

of pop tunes/Broadway cover songs. No two<br />

pieces are exactly the same.”<br />

The steel band was founded in 2000 as<br />

part of <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> Schools. Last<br />

summer, it officially became part of the<br />

<strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> Joint Recreation<br />

District. The non-profit collective organization<br />

was founded in September 2023.<br />

While the JRD still manages the collective,<br />

day-to-day logistics are handled by the<br />

organization. The community choir began<br />

rehearsals in February and the street<br />

troupe recently began activity.<br />

The <strong>Winchester</strong> Steel band program has<br />

three ensembles–one for middle school<br />

students, one for high school students, and<br />

one for adults. <strong>Winchester</strong> Voices is for<br />

ages 16 and up and the theatre group is<br />

open to all ages. There are plans to add a<br />

small instrumental ensemble in the fall<br />

and a dance/movement experience in the<br />

future.<br />

While the band has a 24-year history,<br />

Phillips wanted to create a theatre group<br />

unlike others in the area.<br />

“Pickerington and Lithopolis have very<br />

established, quality community theatre<br />

groups,” said Phillips. “Trying to create a<br />

similar group in <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> could be<br />

a struggle. We do not want to compete with<br />

our neighbors. Rather, we’d like to offer the<br />

community things that Wagnalls and<br />

Pickerington currently do not. So we decided<br />

to do street theatre. Street theatre is a<br />

very open-ended approach. It combines<br />

short plays–eight to 10 minutes–with<br />

improvisation, theatre games and audience<br />

interaction. It can be presented with a<br />

small number of performers or a larger<br />

group. It’s the safest way to create a theatre<br />

program. Everyone involved gets to<br />

FREE <strong>South</strong> & <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong><br />

<strong>Messenger</strong><br />

work.”<br />

The <strong>Winchester</strong> Street<br />

Theatre troupe has its premier<br />

performance on <strong>May</strong> 18<br />

during the <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong><br />

Art Stroll, noon to 6 p.m.<br />

Performers will be located in<br />

various places throughout<br />

downtown during the course<br />

of the Stroll.<br />

While the acting group is<br />

new, the community choir has<br />

a heritage dating back<br />

decades, albeit in a different<br />

form.<br />

“When I came to the <strong>Canal</strong><br />

<strong>Winchester</strong> area in the fall of<br />

1988, there was a community<br />

choir, the <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong><br />

Chorale directed by Virginia<br />

Heffner,” said Phillips. “This<br />

ensemble still exists, though<br />

performs on a limited basis<br />

primarily in senior centers.<br />

Unfortunately, modern society<br />

has few opportunities for<br />

adults to sing in an organized<br />

choral group. Decades ago,<br />

every church had a choir.<br />

Many modern churches have<br />

moved away from that older<br />

model, but the desire to sing in<br />

such a group has never<br />

changed.”<br />

Phillips said the performing<br />

arts collective is excited to offer the<br />

experience to the community. <strong>Winchester</strong><br />

Voices will run three sessions during the<br />

calendar year. A spring session concert will<br />

premiere on <strong>May</strong> 30 at Gender Road<br />

Christian Church, 5336 Gender Road,<br />

<strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong>, at 7 p.m.<br />

“This is a nearly a 60-voice mixed choir,”<br />

said Phillips. “The summer session will run<br />

from mid-June to the end of August and the<br />

fall/holiday session will run from October<br />

into December. Performance dates for the<br />

summer session and fall/holiday session<br />

have not been scheduled yet.”<br />

Like every non-profit, the <strong>Canal</strong><br />

<strong>Winchester</strong> Performing Arts Collective<br />

must be creative not only on a stage, but<br />

also in how their ensembles are supported.<br />

“We’ll take every donation, no matter<br />

how large or small,” said Phillips. “We are<br />

applying for various support grants to help<br />

fund our work. We have asked for a small<br />

participation fee for some of our groups and<br />

many of our performance events have a<br />

Pay What You Will ticket fee. You do not<br />

need to have a <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> mailing<br />

address to participate in any of our ensembles.<br />

Rehearsal schedules and locations<br />

vary depending on the ensemble and we<br />

have been lucky to have the support of local<br />

Collective at a recent rehearsal include, from left to<br />

right: J.J. Haney, Michayla Lovitt, and Jessica Meathrell.<br />

churches to provide spaces to work and perform<br />

in their facilities.”<br />

Phillips acknowledged there are few<br />

opportunities for community members to<br />

participate in performing arts ensembles.<br />

“The arts have been my paycheck and<br />

career,” said Phillips. “For the majority of<br />

our community, the arts are a much needed<br />

therapy. We are all aware of the last five<br />

years and how devastating it was to all of<br />

us. Being involved in the performing arts<br />

can go a long way to heal.”<br />

In evaluating the public reaction to the<br />

non-profit organization and its programs,<br />

Phillips said he is overwhelmed by the<br />

response from the community.<br />

“I know my long history with the community<br />

has made an impact, but I had no<br />

idea how enthusiastic and supportive the<br />

community and our city leaders were going<br />

to be when we announced these programs,”<br />

said Phillips. “I’m touched to have nearly<br />

30 <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> High School alumni<br />

and parents involved in <strong>Winchester</strong> Voices,<br />

<strong>Winchester</strong> Steel ,and our new Street<br />

Theatre troupe.”<br />

Area schools host job fair<br />

<strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> Schools, Groveport<br />

Madison Schools, and Whitehall City<br />

Schools are joining forces to address critical<br />

staffing shortages by hosting a combined<br />

job fair on June 5 from 4-7 p.m. at<br />

<strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> High School, 300<br />

Washington St., <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong>.<br />

The event aims to fill key support staff<br />

positions, including paraprofessionals, bus<br />

drivers, aides, and custodians. The partner<br />

schools recognize the urgent need for these<br />

roles and are prepared to offer qualified candidates<br />

positions on the spot. Ideal candidates<br />

are individuals seeking meaningful<br />

work that positively impacts their community<br />

and the future of children in Central Ohio.<br />

“The partner schools are looking for dedicated<br />

individuals who are passionate about<br />

making a difference in the lives of students,”<br />

said Dr. Chris Green, Director of Diversity,<br />

Engagement, and Human Capital at<br />

Groveport Madison Schools. “Working at a<br />

school offers a desirable schedule, excellent<br />

benefits, and the opportunity to contribute<br />

significantly to our community.”<br />

No teaching license is required for these<br />

positions, making them accessible to a<br />

wide range of candidates. Interested individuals<br />

are encouraged to attend the combined<br />

job fair to learn more about the available<br />

positions and the benefits of working<br />

in education.<br />

Cultural exchange program<br />

Open your heart and home - host an<br />

exchange student. Many students from<br />

around the world will be coming to live and<br />

study in the U.S. throughout the upcoming<br />

school year with Aspect Foundation, a nonprofit<br />

organization dedicated to excellence<br />

in youth exchange.<br />

Aspect Foundation students hail from<br />

nearly 50 different countries but all share<br />

the same dream — to experience the<br />

American way of life. Exchange students<br />

are aged 15 to 18, speak English, and have<br />

their own spending money and insurance.<br />

Volunteer host families will provide room,<br />

board, and a loving home environment for<br />

a semester or academic year. In return,<br />

host families and exchange students learn<br />

about another culture firsthand, and gain<br />

a second family for life.<br />

Host families can be married or single,<br />

with or without children, newly retired or<br />

just starting out. Cassandra Lewis, Aspect<br />

International Coordinator for the<br />

Columbus area, can help you choose a student<br />

that matches your family's interests<br />

and help make the upcoming school year an<br />

unforgettable one full of lasting memories!<br />

Tips to make baking more healthy<br />

• Replace sugar with a fig puree. more water than butter, so bakers may<br />

• Dates. One cup of pureed pitted dates • Replace white flour with whole wheat<br />

with one cup of water can replace as much flour. Whole wheat flour is not processed,<br />

as half of the sugar a recipe calls for. so it retains its nutritional value.<br />

Fairfield Career Center gets<br />

Purple Star Designation<br />

Fairfield Career Center was recently<br />

named among more than 150 schools in<br />

Ohio to be granted Purple Star designation<br />

by the Ohio Department of Education and<br />

Workforce.<br />

Purple Star schools show a significant<br />

commitment to serving students and families<br />

connected to our nation’s armed forces.<br />

Ninety-seven Ohio schools received the<br />

esteemed award for the first time, and 74<br />

schools earned a renewal after three years<br />

as dedicated Purple Star Schools.<br />

To qualify for the award, schools choose<br />

a school-based staff person to serve as a<br />

liaison between military families and the<br />

school. These liaisons complete professional<br />

development, identify military-connected<br />

students, and facilitate support<br />

throughout the school community for identified<br />

students and families. Assistant<br />

principals Heather Tinsley and Angela<br />

Fuentes will serve as liaisons to students<br />

and families at Fairfield Career Center.<br />

For both, helping FCC earn Purple Star<br />

designation, serve military-connected families,<br />

and support students interested in<br />

military service is personal. Before becoming<br />

an educator, Tinsley served in the U.S.<br />

Army National Guard. Fuentes is the<br />

proud parent of a military serviceman, who<br />

is currently serving in the U.S. Army.<br />

Purple Star schools also participate in at<br />

least one supportive activity each year. The<br />

Purple Star Class of <strong>2024</strong> includes schools<br />

that host monthly club meetings, provide<br />

professional learning for all educators on<br />

the unique considerations of military-connected<br />

students, implement peer-to-peer<br />

transition programs, or host schoolwide<br />

celebrations honoring military students<br />

and families. On April 25, Fairfield Career<br />

Center held its first such celebration by<br />

honoring 13 students who committed to<br />

enlist in a branch of the U.S. Armed Forces<br />

(pictured).<br />

Fairfield Career Center receives the designation<br />

for three years, after which it can<br />

apply for renewal of the designation.<br />

Why Supporting Small<br />

Business MATTERS!<br />

Dear Neighbor,<br />

As a State Senator, small business owner, and nonprofit<br />

CEO, I am keenly aware of the vital role that<br />

small businesses play in our communities. In honor<br />

of Small Business Month, I am calling all Ohioans<br />

to get out and support their favorite small business<br />

as your support plays a significant role in a<br />

creating vibrant, flourishing communities. Small<br />

businesses are the backbone of our local economy,<br />

fostering job creation, innovation, and a unique<br />

character that defines our neighborhoods. Beyond<br />

their economic contributions, small businesses<br />

have an unparalleled capacity to make a meaningful<br />

impact on our communities through their commitment<br />

to giving back.<br />

When small businesses succeed, they generate<br />

employment opportunities, helping to reduce unemployment<br />

rates and improve the standard of living.<br />

Every local store, restaurant, or service<br />

provider that thrives contributes to a more robust<br />

and resilient economy. Moreover, small businesses<br />

often source their products locally, ensuring economic<br />

benefits circulate within our community<br />

and supporting other local enterprises and suppliers.<br />

The impact of small business extends beyond economics.<br />

I have witnessed firsthand the intersection<br />

between business and philanthropy. Many small<br />

businesses partner with local charities, sponsor<br />

community events, and support local schools and<br />

community initiatives. Such acts of generosity and<br />

community involvement foster a sense of unity<br />

and shared purpose, making our neighborhoods<br />

more vibrant and cohesive.<br />

Join me in supporting our local small business<br />

community. Your patronage helps these companies<br />

expand, create more jobs, and continue their<br />

invaluable community support.<br />

Enjoy a meal at a local restaurant, shop at a local<br />

neighborhood store, or use a local service<br />

provider. Whatever you choose, just know that<br />

your support will have a direct impact on Ohio’s<br />

economy. By supporting our small businesses,<br />

your investing in Ohio’s economic health and contributing<br />

to the social fabric that makes our communities<br />

strong.<br />

Results matter so let's make a difference together.<br />

Caution if consuming “Unfrosted”<br />

Beyond having the distinction as being<br />

one of the only sugar-filled foods that did<br />

not make my adolescent skin erupt like a<br />

volcano, I cannot say that the once frequent<br />

consumption of the Pop-Tarts breakfast<br />

pastry added any real value to my life<br />

when I was younger, particularly in regard<br />

to actual nutritional needs. As an adult —<br />

questionably — I cannot say the same when<br />

it comes to the recent consumption of Pop-<br />

Tarts related media because it is now twofor-two<br />

in providing a real sense of happiness<br />

to my old and weary soul.<br />

The first instance of this long forgotten<br />

breakfast staple becoming a beacon of joy in<br />

my life took place at a collegiate football<br />

game, of all things. It was at the conclusion<br />

of an otherwise uneventful bowl game<br />

between Kansas State and North Carolina<br />

State and the sponsors had just rolled out<br />

the float for the trophy presentation ceremony.<br />

Standing atop of the festively<br />

adorned structure was a gigantic and sweet<br />

faced pastry named Strawberry. As the official<br />

mascot of the inaugural Pop-Tarts<br />

Bowl, the smiling Strawberry whipped out<br />

a sign declaring “Dreams Really Do Come<br />

True” and waved manically as it was slowly<br />

lowered into an industrial sized toaster.<br />

Before the guests could get too whipped<br />

up from having seen a high fructose massacre,<br />

a secret compartment on the float<br />

opened to reveal an oversized Pop-Tart on<br />

the slab, frosted and toasted and ready to<br />

be consumed by the victorious — and apparently<br />

ravenous — Kansas State players.<br />

The sacrificial breakfast pastry moment<br />

went viral on the internet, deservedly so. It<br />

was one of the funniest and most bizarre<br />

scenes ever broadcast on television and it<br />

brought so much happiness because of the<br />

fact. Nearly six months have gone by since<br />

that event and I still go back and watch the<br />

clip whenever I need a good laugh.<br />

The second instance in which the breakfast<br />

pastry brought a sense of joy to my life<br />

was during a recent viewing of “Unfrosted,”<br />

a new movie on Netflix which is extremely<br />

loosely based on the race to create a shelfstable<br />

breakfast option. Unsurprisingly, it<br />

is as absurd as it sounds but unfortunately<br />

it never comes as close to the level of greatness<br />

of Strawberry cheerfully sailing into<br />

the big toaster in the sky.<br />

In this completely silly and mostly faux<br />

tale of the creation of the Pop-Tart, noted<br />

cereal enthusiast Jerry Seinfeld plays Bob<br />

Cabana, an executive at Kellogg’s who has<br />

three main concerns in life: paying the<br />

annual tuition of $200 for his children to<br />

attend college; saving enough money to<br />

replace his yard grass with sod; and finding<br />

a way to beat cereal rival Post to the<br />

creation of a shelf-stable breakfast pastry<br />

that could replace cereal as the top breakfast<br />

choice for kids across the country.<br />

Although Kellogg’s has been the reigning<br />

champs of the cereal industry for decades —<br />

they constantly sweep the annual breakfast<br />

award — CEO Edsel Kellogg III (Jim<br />

Gaffigan) has become somewhat paranoid<br />

over what Post CEO Marjorie Post (Amy<br />

Shumer) could have baking in the lab. In<br />

The Reel Deal<br />

order to quell his concerns<br />

that they could<br />

be usurped in the<br />

hearts of sugar-loving<br />

children around the<br />

Dedra<br />

Cordle<br />

globe, he orders Bob to assemble a team of<br />

shrewd individuals to design and build this<br />

elusive breakfast beast.<br />

The first person he turns to is former<br />

colleague Donna “Stan” Stankowski<br />

(Melissa McCarthy), who left the company<br />

to join NASA to work on the moon race. To<br />

get her to come back, Bob ruefully asks<br />

whether she believes they will really go to<br />

the moon. When she expressed her belief<br />

that they would not, she is back on board,<br />

simple as that.<br />

With the dynamic duo back together<br />

they recruit a powerful breakfast commission<br />

that includes bicycle king Steve<br />

Schwinn (Jack McBrayer), fitness guru<br />

Jack LaLanne (James Marsden), ice cream<br />

connoisseur Tom Carrel (Adrian Martinez),<br />

pasta pro Chef Boy Ardee (Bobby<br />

Moynihan) and possible former war criminal<br />

Harold Von Braunhut (Thomas<br />

Lennon). Since none of these people on the<br />

breakfast commission actually know anything<br />

about the creation of breakfast<br />

meals, chaos quickly ensues. Over the<br />

course of several weeks in the Kellogg’s lab,<br />

a sentient sea monkey gets baked into ravioli,<br />

one of the commissioners loses his life<br />

in a freak taste testing accident, and they<br />

have to grapple with an underground<br />

movement led by Frosted Flakes mascot<br />

Tony the Tiger (a grrreat Hugh Grant) to<br />

sabotage the breakfast pastry movement.<br />

I cannot in good faith say that<br />

“Unfrosted” is a “good” film. It is not.<br />

Seinfeld, making his directorial debut, is<br />

limited in his vision (it essentially amounts<br />

to a point and shoot direction) and the<br />

screenplay he co-wrote with “Bee Movie”<br />

scribes Spike Feresten, Barry Marder, and<br />

Andy Robin does not even attempt to tell a<br />

complete narrative — the third act crumbles<br />

like a pastry, as if everyone ran out of ideas<br />

and just decided to throw absurdities at the<br />

wall. None of these things are promising in<br />

a movie. And yet…I laughed. A lot. I<br />

laughed because this movie about the<br />

invention of the Pop-Tart and its rival, the<br />

Post Country Squares, is very, very, silly<br />

and sometimes you just need something<br />

very, very silly in your life.<br />

Much like the actual breakfast pastry —<br />

or any other food stuffed with sugar — I<br />

urge caution if you want to consume<br />

“Unfrosted” because I know its humor will<br />

not be for everyone. It’s completely absurd,<br />

it completely embraces that absurdity, and<br />

it completely expects the viewer to do so as<br />

well. Not everyone can, of course, but the<br />

viewing experience will be so much better<br />

if you put seriousness aside.<br />
