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 />

London High School’s sports management<br />

class hosted the inaugural RESPY<br />

Athletic Award Show on May 10 in the Ray<br />

Chadwell Gymnasium.<br />

The sports management class is an internship<br />

program designed for students to<br />

examine the operations and business aspects<br />

of the sports industry. This month, the<br />

group applied that knowledge in creating<br />

the RESPYS, an award ceremony that celebrates<br />

the achievements and accomplishments<br />

of the high school’s top<br />

student-athletes and sports teams.<br />

The ceremony brings together coaches,<br />

teammates, and supporters to applaud individuals<br />

who have shown exceptional performance<br />

and dedication throughout the year.<br />

The sports management class reached<br />

out to local companies and organizations to<br />

help sponsor the event. Top tier sponsors<br />

had an award named after them.<br />

The high school coaches nominated student-athletes<br />

for 21 different award categories.<br />

Once nominations were complete, all of the student-athletes<br />

participated by voting for their peers. The top three student-athletes<br />

receiving votes were named as finalists for the award show.<br />

The winners were:<br />

• Breakthrough Athlete—Addison Lambert;<br />

• Best Comeback Athlete—Justin Jackman;<br />

• Courage Award—Sean Sabulsky;<br />

• Perseverance Award—Jude Salyer;<br />

• Service Award—Laila McQuirt;<br />

This year’s sponsors were: Dwyer’s Hardware, CK Signs, Creative<br />

Flooring, Red Hot Propane, Marathon, Ronetti’s, Patterson<br />

Construction, Buckeye Ford, Kronk & Scaggs Insurance, Direct Mechanical,<br />

Buckeye Realty, and Eberle-Fisher Funeral.<br />

Lacrosse league honors<br />

The Mid-Ohio Lacrosse League formed this year and includes<br />

boys’ lacrosse teams from Jonathan Alder, Bexley, Buckeye Valley,<br />

Columbus Academy, Granville, John Glenn, Johnstown, and Licking<br />

Valley.<br />

The league was established after schedules were completed for<br />

the <strong>2024</strong> season, so there was no league schedule or team league<br />

champion crowned, but the coaches did select an all-league team as<br />

most teams played each other during the regular season.<br />

Jonathan Alder lacrosse players who earned league honors are:<br />

• First-team all-league—junior Wyatt Clemons (midfielder) and<br />

senior Jack Kennedy (attack);<br />

• Second-team all-league—senior Alex Boggs (defenseman) and<br />

junior Mason Curtis (face-off);<br />

• Special mention all-league—junior Travis Chany (defenseman);<br />

• Sportsmanship award—junior Kaiden Snyder (attack).<br />

In 2025, the league will host a single-round league schedule.

$22,000 raised for financial literacy<br />

The Junior Achievement (JA) <strong>Madison</strong><br />

County Women & Wine event, which took<br />

place at London City Hall on April 24,<br />

raised over $22,000 to support financial literacy,<br />

work readiness, and entrepreneurship<br />

among school students.<br />

Event organizers are donating $2,000 of<br />

that total to Logan County Schools to purchase<br />

JA materials. The Logan County<br />

Women & Wine event was cancelled due to<br />

a devastating tornado. The JA <strong>Madison</strong><br />

County Women & Wine committee stepped<br />

in to fill the gap.<br />

“We are deeply moved by the resilience<br />

and spirit of the Logan County community,”<br />

said Lehan Peters, business development director<br />

for Junior Achievement of the Mad<br />

River Region. “Our event has always been<br />

about bringing people together for a greater<br />

cause, and we are honored to extend our<br />

support to the Logan County Schools. We<br />

believe that every child deserves access to<br />

quality educational resources, especially in<br />

the face of challenges.”<br />

The <strong>Madison</strong> County Women & Wine organizers<br />

extended their appreciation to this<br />

year’s attendees, business sponsors, and volunteers<br />

for making the event a success. The<br />

remaining proceeds will directly fund the<br />

purchase of JA materials for students attending<br />

schools across <strong>Madison</strong> County.<br />

JA provides practical training in financial<br />

literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship.<br />

This includes instruction on<br />

budgeting, spending, investing, and using<br />

Nutrient management plans<br />

lead to sustainable farming<br />

In the ever-evolving landscape of modern<br />

agriculture, the implementation of voluntary<br />

nutrient management plans stands as<br />

a beacon of sustainable farming practices.<br />

These plans, tailored to the specific needs of<br />

each farm, outline strategies for optimizing<br />

nutrient usage while minimizing environmental<br />

impact.<br />

As the global population burgeons and<br />

climate change looms large, the significance<br />

of these plans cannot be overstated. At the<br />

heart of a voluntary nutrient management<br />

plan lies a commitment to environmental<br />

stewardship. By carefully monitoring and<br />

managing nutrient inputs, farmers can mitigate<br />

the risk of nutrient runoff into waterways,<br />

a major contributor to water pollution<br />

and ecosystem degradation.<br />

Through practices such as precision agriculture<br />

and cover cropping, farmers can<br />

minimize the excess application of fertilizers<br />

and pesticides, safeguarding not only their<br />

land but also the surrounding ecosystems.<br />

Soil testing on these acres is vital to ensure<br />

the proper placement of nutrients on the<br />

landscape.<br />

Furthermore, voluntary nutrient management<br />

plans foster economic resilience for<br />

farmers. By optimizing nutrient usage,<br />

farmers can reduce input costs while maintaining<br />

or even improving yields. Additionally,<br />

these plans often include measures to<br />

Thank you, Plain City!<br />

The members of American Legion Post<br />

248 would like to thank all the citizens of<br />

Plain City for their caring, generosity, and<br />

overwhelming support during our fundraising<br />

event on May 18. Your contributions will<br />

allow our post to continue to serve Plain<br />

City veterans and their families.<br />

enhance soil health, such as crop rotation<br />

and conservation tillage, which can lead to<br />

long-term improvements in productivity<br />

and resilience to environmental stressors.<br />

Beyond environmental and economic<br />

benefits, voluntary nutrient management<br />

plans contribute to the overall sustainability<br />

of agricultural systems. By promoting<br />

better planned approaches to<br />

land management, these plans help to preserve<br />

natural resources for future generations<br />

while ensuring the viability of farming<br />

operations in the face of changing environmental<br />

conditions.<br />

These plans can be created with your<br />

local Soil and Water Conservation District<br />

and are approved for four years.<br />

The adoption of voluntary nutrient management<br />

plans represents a proactive step<br />

towards a more sustainable agricultural future.<br />

By embracing these plans, farmers can<br />

simultaneously enhance environmental<br />

stewardship, economic viability, and the<br />

long-term resilience of their operations.<br />

nutrient management plan, reach<br />

She was awarded the American Spirit Honor Medal, the Army Commendation Medal, became an Assistant<br />

cherished the opportunity to give to others.<br />

Janet was the caregiver to her husband Vincent; sister Judy, and her mother Martha. Her motto for life<br />

was BEE positive. In her own words, “the BEE serves as a reminder for me to BEE positive and trust in<br />

the Lord. Since 1991 there have been few days that I have missed wearing a bee…When I put a bee<br />

on my shoulder each day, I ask God for his blessings upon me, my loved ones and all with whom I<br />

come in contact.” After being diagnosed with posterior cortical atrophy (a rare progressive form of dementia),<br />

she had a small bee tattooed on her wrist as a reminder to BEE positive. The world is a far<br />

richer place for the love, kindness, generosity, and laughter Janet spread so widely 143.<br />

Plain City receives EPA grant<br />

The Ohio EPA recently awarded grant funding to the<br />

village of Plain City through the H2Ohio Rivers Initiative:<br />

Chloride Reduction Grant Program. The purpose of<br />

the program is to reduce road salt and deicer runoff and<br />

promote chloride reduction in Ohio’s waterways and natural<br />

resources. By reducing runoff from road salt and<br />

deicers, freshwater species are protected, water quality<br />

is increased, and beneficial soil composition is preserved.<br />

This funding will allow the Plain City to make repairs<br />

and improvements to its road salt storage facility.<br />

The project will reduce road salt runoff and protect<br />

valuable waterways in Plain City, including the State<br />

and National Scenic River, Big Darby Creek. As part of<br />

the project, the storage facility will receive a new<br />

canopy and additional pavement and concrete blocks to<br />

enclose the salt storage area.<br />

The grant award of $34,600 will entirely fund the<br />

project and will not require local taxpayer funds.<br />
