<strong>June</strong> 13-15: Mt. Sterling Summer Jam Festival<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

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

More music, plenty of food options, new children’s activities—this<br />

year’s Summer Jam has it all.<br />

Hosted by the Mount Sterling Chamber of Commerce, Summer<br />

Jam is a three-day festival that takes place on the streets of downtown<br />

Mount Sterling. Dates and hours are <strong>June</strong> 13 from 5 to 10<br />

p.m., <strong>June</strong> 14 from 5 to 11 p.m., and <strong>June</strong> 15 from 12 to 11 p.m.<br />

Music<br />

New this year is an additional location to hear live music—the<br />

gazebo across from town hall. Two solo acts and a trio are slated to<br />

entertain there, including: Mount Sterling resident Tiger Wyatt<br />

performing country music; Toadstool Shadow, a folk trio out of<br />

Chillicothe; and country and midwestern artist West Taylor, a<br />

Mount Sterling native now living in Columbus.<br />

“The gazebo is a way to incorporate more music than we have in<br />

the past. This way, there will be music going at all times somewhere<br />

at the festival,” said Barbie Wallace, one of the event organizers.<br />

Bands slated to perform at the stage near Hammer Time Pub,<br />

27 S. London St., include Tiger Wyatt, the bluegrass group Drivin’<br />

23, the local classic rock, pop, and country band Lake Effect, and<br />

Distorted Silence playing originals and rock covers from the 1970s<br />

to now.<br />

The music lineup at the stage near the Mount Sterling Masonic<br />

Lodge, 48 N. London St., includes Colt & The 45s and Bodie &<br />

Jameson. Both are groups comprised of local youths performing<br />

publicly for the first time.<br />

Food and Shopping<br />

The food options at the festival are many and varied. The Mount<br />

Sterling Eagles Youth League will sell goodies including pulled<br />

pork, walking tacos, and macaroni and<br />

cheese. The First United Methodist Church<br />

is back with their famous sugar waffles. The<br />

Masonic Lodge will sell lemonade shakeups.<br />

Food trucks in the lineup include Belle’s Ice<br />

LEGAL NOTICE<br />

The Public Utilities Commission of Ohio has scheduled a public hearing in<br />

Case No. 22-693-EL-ABN, In the Matter of the Application of Ohio Power<br />

Company for Authority to Abandon Electric Service Lines, Pursuant to Ohio<br />

Revised Code Sections 4904.20 and 4905.21. Ohio Power Company d/b/a<br />

AEP Ohio (AEP Ohio) alleges that on May 19, 2022, Nationwide Energy<br />

Partners, LLC (NEP) requested that AEP Ohio abandon distribution facilities<br />

at the Northtowne Apartments (Northtowne) in Columbus, Ohio in order for<br />

NEP to establish master-meter service on the property. AEP Ohio asserts that it<br />

has exclusively provided electric distribution services to Northtowne, noting<br />

that service has been provided via distribution facilities at the property such as<br />

distribution lines, conduit, meters, riders, and transformers. AEP Ohio believes<br />

that NEP’s conversion request would require AEP Ohio to abandon such distribution<br />

facilities on the property, resulting in termination of AEP Ohio’s exclusive<br />

service to its existing 293 customers at Northtowne. AEP Ohio argues that<br />

such abandonment would be against the welfare of the public, as contemplated<br />

under R.C. 4905.21. Additionally, AEP Ohio states that, to the extent that it is<br />

required to convert Northtowne to master-meter service from NEP, it intends<br />

to provide a single point of primary service to the perimeter of the Northtowne<br />

property line rather than providing 59 secondary service points, which is the<br />

current configuration on the property.<br />

An evidentiary hearing in this proceeding will commence on <strong>June</strong> 24, <strong>2024</strong>, at<br />

10:00 a.m., at the offices of the Commission, Hearing Room 11-A, 180 East<br />

Broad Street, 11th Floor, Columbus, Ohio 43215.<br />

BROWN<br />

Louise G. Brown, 93, of London, Ohio, passed away in the arms<br />

of her family on May 30, <strong>2024</strong>, at London Health and Rehabilitation.<br />

Born on April 16, 1931, in Tazewell, Virginia, she was a daughter<br />

of Arthur Compton and Ginnie (Johnson) Compton.<br />

Louise worked for General Motors on the production line for 24<br />

years. As ornery as they come, Louise was no stranger to playing a<br />

prank on others. She loved the color purple and always felt her best<br />

while wearing it. Additionally, Louise was a bingo player; however,<br />

bingo was never recreational to her, but rather more of a competitive<br />

sport. She would always strive to be the best player she could<br />

be and never settle for anything less!<br />

She enjoyed the musician that the facility brought in. Loved all<br />

the activities, outings, and parties that were provided by London<br />
