CW Council sets<br />

rules for road use<br />

of golf carts<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

As golf carts become more popular as a form of transportation,<br />

<strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> City Council is tightening up language regarding<br />

their movement on public roads.<br />

Legislation regarding under-speed vehicles, such as golf carts,<br />

was unanimously approved by council on <strong>June</strong> 3.<br />

According to the traffic code ordinance, an under-speed vehicle<br />

is a three- or four-wheeled vehicle, including golf carts, incapable<br />

of attaining a speed greater than 20 mph on a paved level surface.<br />

The vehicle’s gross weight rating must be less than 3,000 pounds,<br />

pass an inspection, and a fee paid by the owner as required by the<br />

city’s codified ordinances. No person shall operate an under-speed<br />

vehicle on any roadway where the posted speed limit is greater<br />

than 25 mph, except on Washington Street north of Ashbrook<br />

Road, or when crossing a roadway is necessary for compliance.<br />

In a May 25 online public comment submission, Washington<br />

Street resident Michael Cooper said he is concerned about allowing<br />

golf carts along the 35 mph speed zone between Ashbrook<br />

Road and a bridge.<br />

A float fit for a queen<br />

By Rick Palsgrove<br />

Managing Editor<br />

The royalty of the Miss <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> Pageant<br />

will have a refurbished float to ride on for the upcoming<br />

Labor Day parade.<br />

Matthew Turney of Boy Scout Troop 103 is working<br />

to fix up the float as his Eagle Scout project.<br />

“The coordinator of the Miss <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong><br />

Pageant is Melanie Boise,” said Lisa Turney, who is<br />

Matthew’s mother and assistant scoutmaster for<br />

Troop 103. “She was Matthew’s teacher in elementary<br />

school. And he has known a few girls who have<br />

been in the Queen’s Court over the years.”<br />

Lisa said no one is sure how old the queen’s float is.<br />

“A name you know, Experience you can trust”<br />

“It was moved on to a larger trailer and the top<br />

shelf added about six years ago,” said Lisa. “The Miss<br />

<strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> pageant does use it for the CW<br />

Labor Day parade as well as numerous other parades<br />

all year long.”<br />

She said three other scouts and eight adults have<br />

helped Matthew on the project.<br />

When asked how long have they been working on<br />

the float and when is it expected to be completed, Lisa<br />

said, “Matthew first met with Mrs. Boise in January.<br />

The float was used for the Memorial Day parade in<br />

Lithopolis. It still needs some detail work and lights<br />

added. We expect to be done soon.”<br />

LEUKOPLAKIA<br />

Since 1972<br />

Dr. Kelly<br />

The term leukoplakia comes<br />

from a Greek word meaning white<br />

plate, an apt description of the<br />

white patches that characterize<br />

this disorder. Ill-fitting dentures or<br />

a rough tooth rubbing against the<br />

cheek or gums is a common<br />

cause.<br />

When white patches develop in<br />

the mouths of smokers as the<br />

body’s natural protection against<br />

the heat of tobacco smoke, the<br />

condition is called smoker’s<br />

keratosis. Patches also occur if a<br />

cud of chewing tobacco or snuff<br />

is held in the mouth for extended<br />

periods.<br />

You may notice a white or grayish<br />

patch that develops on the inside<br />

of one cheek or on your<br />

tongue. After a while, it may become<br />

rough and sensitive to hot<br />

or spicy foods. If you do observe<br />

such a patch, see your dentist. If<br />

the patch persists after treatment,<br />

a biopsy specimen of the area<br />

may be taken and examined<br />

under a microscope. About three<br />

percent of such patches are early<br />

signs of mouth cancer.<br />

Prepared as a public service to<br />

promote better dental health.<br />

Continued from page 1<br />

“I think adding golf carts is great idea<br />

as long as the speed limit is lowered to 25<br />

mph,” said Cooper. “Drivers tend to see<br />

how fast they can go between the Walnut<br />

Creek bridge and Ashbrook Road. My family<br />

and I see high speeds every day in this<br />

area. In addition to allowing golf carts, the<br />

new trail system is also a concern. It is a<br />

great success with high usage from daylight<br />

to dark. Lowering the speed limit<br />

would greatly improve trail safety and golf<br />

cart safety.”<br />

In addressing Cooper’s public comment,<br />

City Administrator Matt Peoples said it is<br />

state law that the posted speed limit is 35<br />

mph along Washington Street north of<br />

Ashbrook and <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> is not permitted<br />

to change the speed limit.<br />

City attorney Thaddeus Boggs said golf<br />

carts can be authorized on roadways of 35<br />

mph or less.<br />

“The city can set a limit less than that<br />

for golf carts, but the city cannot unilaterally<br />

change that stretch of roadway from<br />

35 mph to 25 mph for vehicles generally,”<br />

said Boggs.<br />

FLOAT<br />

Continued from page 1<br />

The old float needed a lot of work.<br />

“The float took severe water damage,”<br />

said Lisa. “The entire outside had to be<br />

removed and replaced as well as part of the<br />

support structure for the bottom two seating<br />

levels. The front rail was lowered for<br />

visibility. All of the hand rails were rebuilt<br />

higher for look and safety. The top level<br />

was hinged to make it low enough to fit in<br />

a garage for future storage. And the entire<br />

thing will be sealed with water proof paint<br />

to make it more weather resistant.”<br />

Matthew faced a lot of challenges on the<br />

project. He had to network with several<br />

businesses to obtain donations of supplies<br />

to keep the costs down. He also had to<br />

learn to manage a team of mostly adults<br />

with conflicting availability and different<br />

ideas of how to improve the float.<br />

When asked how much it cost to refurbish<br />

the float and how the project is being<br />

funded, Lisa said, “The Miss <strong>Canal</strong><br />

<strong>Winchester</strong> Pageant held two fundraisers.<br />

Matthew had plans for a third, but he was<br />

able to get enough supplies donated that<br />

the third was not needed. The pageant<br />

held a Valentine’s Ball in February and<br />

hosted a Spring Market craft show in<br />

April. The total cost of the supplies will be<br />

over $1,000 but the cost to the pageant<br />

should be less than $300.”<br />

Several business partners contributed<br />

to the project including: Nat Floyd from<br />

Bounce Up Ohio which provided time,<br />

labor, supplies and construction expertise;<br />

Tom Obert of Joe Dirt provided an indoor<br />

space to work as well as time, labor, tools,<br />

parts, and paint; 84 Lumber donated all of<br />

the wood; and The Paul Peterson Company<br />

donated additional supplies.<br />

Watch for the refurbished float in the<br />

<strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> Labor Day parade. It<br />

will truly be fit for a queen!

Legislative Update: Innovative<br />

Policies for Families and<br />

Comprehensive Healthcare<br />

Dear Constituents,<br />

I am thrilled to share updates on two important pieces<br />

of legislation that I have been working on to benefit<br />

families and communities across Ohio.<br />

First, the rising cost of child care has become unsustainable<br />

for many Ohio families. To address this, Representative<br />

Mark Johnson and I are proud to introduce the<br />

“Child Care Credit Act.” This innovative legislation, embodied<br />

in Senate Bill 273 and House Bill 610, introduces<br />

a tri-sharemodel where families & employers can elect<br />

to open in, and the State of Ohio each covers one-third<br />

of the total childcare costs. We aim to make child care<br />

more affordable and strengthen Ohio’s workforce.<br />

I am pleased to announce that our initiative has received<br />

endorsements from key organizations, including<br />

Goodwill Columbus, the Ohio Chamber of Commerce,<br />

the Ohio Business Roundtable, and Groundwork Ohio.<br />

Their representatives joined us at this week’s press conference,<br />

demonstrating strong support for this vital effort.<br />

Together, we are committed to easing the financial<br />

burden on families and ensuring that every child has<br />

access to quality care.<br />

In addition to addressing child care, I am pleased to inform<br />

you about Senate Bill 95, the Telepharmacy Bill.<br />

This bill aims to improve pharmaceutical access across<br />

Ohio by enabling remote dispensing pharmacies and<br />

telepharmacy systems, particularly benefiting our rural<br />

and underserved communities.<br />

Key provisions of SB 95 include:<br />

● Allowing pharmacists to mail prescriptions to<br />

patients, addressing barriers for those who face long<br />

commutes to obtain medications.<br />

● Providing a process to grant waivers for pharmacies<br />

within a 10-mile radius, ensuring fair consideration<br />

and transparency.<br />

● Permitting the Board of Pharmacy to add new long<br />

acting injectables that pharmacists can administer.<br />

● Enabling the State Board of Pharmacy to register<br />

technicians as young as seventeen creating more<br />

opportunities in this vital field.<br />

SB 95 ensures patient safety through comprehensive<br />

controls and regulations, including daily prescription<br />

dispensing limits, stringent reporting requirements,<br />

and mandatory staffing levels at remote dispensing<br />

pharmacies. By joining 28 other states in embracing<br />

telepharmacy, Ohio can extend pharmaceutical access<br />

to all 88 counties, fostering healthier communities, reducing<br />

healthcare costs, and easing the burden of<br />

lengthy commutes for essential medications.<br />

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

American Pickers is a documentary<br />

series that explores the world of antique<br />

“picking” on The History Channel. The<br />

They are always excited to find historically<br />

to unforgettable characters and their collections.<br />

The Pickers are on a mission to recycle<br />

and rescue forgotten relics. Along the way,<br />

they want to meet characters with amazing<br />

stories and fun items. They hope to give<br />

historically significant objects a new lease<br />

on life while learning a thing or two about<br />

America’s past along the way.<br />

The Pickers have seen a lot of rusty gold<br />

over the years and are always looking to discover<br />

something they’ve never seen before.<br />

The American Pickers TV Show is looking<br />

for leads and would like to explore your hidden<br />

treasure. If you or someone you know has<br />

a unique item, story to tell, and is ready to<br />

sell, the show would like to hear from you.<br />

future leaders to have their voices heard<br />

and to play an active role in shaping their<br />

communities.”<br />

Board members serve a one-year term,<br />

during which they convene twice in<br />

Columbus to collaborate and advise the<br />

Attorney General’s Office on matters relevant<br />

to teens.<br />

The ideal applicant is a motivated,<br />

enthusiastic self-starter who has an interest<br />

in law and government, seeks to develop<br />

leadership skills, and wants to make a<br />

Parental Notification Act<br />

Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost is<br />

making the public aware of a state law giving<br />

parents oversight of their children’s use<br />

of social media websites as well as online<br />

services and products aimed at children.<br />

The Parental Notification by Social<br />

Media Operators Act, approved by the Ohio<br />

General Assembly took effect on Jan. 15.<br />

www.columbusmessenger.com<br />

The Ohio Attorney General is charged<br />

with enforcement of this law, which applies<br />

to websites, services and products that are<br />

targeted to children or reasonably expected<br />

to be accessed by children.<br />

Operators must obtain parental consent<br />

before establishing accounts for children<br />

under the age of 16. They also must present<br />

parents with a list of censoring or content<br />

moderation features.<br />

When consent is granted, operators<br />

must then send written confirmation of the<br />

account to the parent or legal guardian.<br />

When consent is not given, operators must<br />

deny the child access to the platform.<br />

In cases in which operators fail to provide<br />

notification or a parent wishes to terminate<br />

a child’s access, parents should contact<br />

the website operator who then has 30<br />

days to terminate the child’s access. If parents<br />

are unsuccessful in the account being<br />

deleted, they are encouraged to file a complaint<br />

with the Ohio Attorney General’s<br />

Office at OhioProtects.org.<br />

OhioProtects.org features frequently<br />

asked questions regarding the law and<br />

offers additional resources for parents<br />

seeking information on the upcoming regulations.<br />

Lockbourne plans memorial wall to honor air base<br />

Tuskegee Airmen noted<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Eighty years ago, Lockbourne Army<br />

Airfield was home to the Tuskegee Airmen,<br />

a group of Black service members under<br />

the leadership of Colonel Benjamin Davis,<br />

Jr., the first African American officer to<br />

command an Army Air Force Base.<br />

The village of Lockbourne never forgot<br />

the airmen’s dedication and precedent-setting<br />

service to their country and started<br />

work in March 2023 to install a memorial<br />

in the village’s Veteran’s Park honoring the<br />

Tuskegee Airmen and others who served at<br />

the base.<br />

“Rob Stroup, author of ‘Crossroads of<br />

Liberty,’ approached the village about<br />

installing a monument in Lockbourne to<br />

commemorate the history of Lockbourne /<br />

Rickenbacker Air Force Base,” said<br />

Lockbourne Mayor Christie Ward.<br />

Lockbourne Air Force Base was named<br />

after the village of Lockbourne. Ward said<br />

the base is not only part of the village’s history,<br />

but also that of Hamilton Local<br />

Schools and throughout Hamilton<br />

Township.<br />

She said so much of the base’s history<br />

and historical buildings were destroyed<br />

with development in and around<br />

Rickenbacker and the village wants to<br />

ensure that history is not lost, but preserved<br />

for generations to come.<br />

Rediscover Lockbourne is spearheading<br />

the wall project through donations, book<br />

sales, and other fundraisers. The cost of the<br />

project is estimated at $600,000 for 10 to 12<br />

black granite panels installed on the east<br />

side of Veteran’s Park in the center of the<br />

village.<br />

“We hope to unveil the Memorial Wall in<br />

summer or fall of 2026, which is the 80th<br />

anniversary of when the Tuskegee Airmen<br />

arrived at Lockbourne Army Air Base,”<br />

said Ward. “Funding can be a roadblock.<br />

We have applied for Ohio State Capital<br />

Budget monies for the project. If we<br />

receive monies from the state, we can move<br />

forward with the project in the timeline we<br />

have set. If not, we will have to raise the<br />

money at a grassroots level and that may<br />

take time.”<br />

On <strong>June</strong> 12, the village, Rediscover<br />

Lockbourne and the Ohio Memorial<br />

Chapter Tuskegee Airman, Inc. held an<br />

open house in Lockbourne’s Historical Hall<br />

and Event Center for the memorial wall<br />

project in conjunction with the <strong>2024</strong><br />

Columbus Air Show.<br />

“Designing Local is the design firm for<br />

the project and is responsible for the construction<br />

phase,” said Ward. “We have<br />

partnered with the Tuskegee Airmen Ohio<br />

Memorial Chapter, Motts Museum, 121st<br />

ARW and Hamilton Township High School<br />

on this project. Students from Hamilton<br />

are providing feedback and have been very<br />

engaged in preserving the legacy of the<br />

base and its connection to the school.”<br />

According to Ward, students said the<br />

wall is important to them because it shows<br />

how men and women overcame obstacles.<br />

They also felt it is important to tell the history<br />

of their community and central Ohio,<br />

not only to their generation, but to their<br />

children, and grandchildren.<br />

“Lockbourne Air Force Base was the last<br />

home of the Tuskegee Airmen,” said Ward.<br />

“No other community in the country can<br />

claim that. They were brought here to fail.<br />

Instead, they strove for perfection under<br />

the leadership of then Col. Benjamin A.<br />

Davis Jr. It was the best run base in the<br />

country at that time. Their success contributed<br />

to the integration of the military.<br />

We anticipate the memorial wall to bring<br />

visitors to the region from all over the<br />

country. There is not a monument like this<br />

anywhere else.”<br />

Donations can be made through<br />

Rediscover Lockbourne at P.O. Box 73,<br />

Crabtree paints a picture in flowers<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

A perpetual love of flowers and an eye<br />

for art are united into one focus as Janice<br />

Crabtree paints her <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong><br />

yard with a wide palette of seasonal blossoms.<br />

Crabtree, who is a Hamilton Township<br />

High School graduate, recently turned her<br />

passion into action by pursuing certification<br />

as a master gardener.<br />

“I’ve always loved flowers and art and<br />

it’s fun to combine the two and design a<br />

garden,” said Crabtree. “My friends, family,<br />

neighbors, and now community members<br />

are always asking for advice. I wanted<br />

to be able to provide accurate, up to date<br />

science-based advice instead of throwing<br />

out old wives’ tales. I will say that many<br />

old garden remedies do work, but I want to<br />

know the reason why.”<br />

According to Crabtree and by definition,<br />

a master gardener has two distinguishable<br />

traits–a commitment to being a community<br />

resource for gardening knowledge, as<br />

well as a desire to teach and mentor other<br />

gardeners.<br />

The certification process, through the<br />

Ohio State University Extension Office,<br />

requires a person seeking certification to<br />

attend classes with speakers and presentations<br />

by experts in various fields such as<br />

botany, invasive plants and insects, and<br />

diseases. They are then required to volunteer<br />

50 hours through a wide variety of<br />

opportunities.<br />

“We can volunteer in booths at fairs and<br />

community events, help at community gardens,<br />

help ill gardeners with their upkeep,<br />

maintain spaces at places like Wagnalls,<br />

write for various publications, etc.,” said<br />

Crabtree. “I’m going to give a presentation<br />

at a meeting and will get hours for doing<br />

that. The opportunities are almost endless.<br />

So many people dove into gardening during<br />

the pandemic and are now looking for<br />

information.”<br />

Crabtree is the administrator for the<br />

<strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> Garden Group Facebook<br />

page and plans to increase interest and<br />

encourage members to share their knowledge<br />

and volunteer in the community in<br />

one capacity or another.<br />

“I remember begging my mom to buy me<br />

a few packets of seeds when I was in elementary<br />

school,” said Crabtree. “She was a<br />

single mom, raising three girls, so I knew I<br />

couldn’t ask for actual plants. The process<br />

of planting those seeds, nurturing them,<br />

and then having neighbors walk by and<br />

comment on them got me hooked. I was fortunate<br />

to visit the Cotswolds in England<br />

and the gardens were just remarkable. I<br />

was also able to go to the RHS Chelsea<br />

Flower Show in London.”<br />

The two experiences cemented her love<br />

of cottage gardens and, while she admires<br />

and is amazed at the intricacies of formal<br />

gardens, there is nothing as formal in her<br />

personal garden, aside from tabletop topiaries.<br />

“Everything else is a bit wild and chaotic,”<br />

she said. “I don’t use chemicals and try<br />

to plant for our pollinators and a biodiverse<br />

garden.”<br />

Crabtree invited visitors into her garden<br />

last year as part of a tour and is participating<br />

again this year.<br />

<strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> Garden Society members<br />

hold individual tours on different days<br />

and their hope is to garner enough interest<br />

to hold a larger tour with multiple gardens<br />

on the same day.<br />

When sharing her knowledge with<br />

novice gardeners, she advises them to<br />

check multiple, reliable sources before trying<br />

a ‘hack’ they may see on social media to<br />

revive or help their plant grow.<br />

“Many innocent plants have succumbed<br />

to crazy social media advice,” said<br />

Crabtree. “I think the biggest mistake new<br />

gardeners make is falling in love with a<br />

plant at the nursery and taking it home<br />

without making sure it’s going to be able to<br />

survive in the area they want to put it.”<br />

She advised the plant information on<br />

the tag is the first thing one should look at<br />

and do not be afraid to dig a plant up and<br />

move it if it is not thriving. Crabtree also<br />

suggests the option of placing perennials in<br />

pots, which she calls a “big money saver.”<br />

“I usually put multiple perennials in a<br />

pot and then plug in a few annuals for<br />

color,” she said. “If you do want to put a<br />

perennial in a pot, you should look for<br />

plants that will survive in two zones colder<br />

than ours. We’re in Zone 6, so I look for<br />

perennials that will survive in Zone 4 or<br />

lower for my containers.”<br />

She loves containers because they can<br />

be moved around to wherever you might<br />

need more color or to fill in a bare spot midseason.<br />

“A mistake many gardeners make with<br />

containers is putting plants that need different<br />

sun exposure or watering needs in<br />

the same pot,” said Crabtree. “Be patient.<br />

The first year your plant will sleep. The<br />

second year it will creep and the third it<br />

will leap.”<br />

Vacation Check program<br />

The Fairfield County Sheriff’s Office, in<br />

partnership with the Community Watch<br />

volunteers, operates a Vacation Check program.<br />

This free service gives <strong>Canal</strong><br />

<strong>Winchester</strong> residents peace of mind that<br />

their property is being watched while they<br />

are out of town. A deputy or volunteer will<br />

check on the residence at least once a day<br />

while you are away for up to 30 days. To<br />

Making hay while the sun shines<br />

www.columbusmessenger.com<br />

By Rick Palsgrove<br />

Managing Editor<br />

The hot days of summer mean it is time<br />

to gather hay down on the farm.<br />

At Metro Parks Slate Run Living<br />

Historical Farm, 1375 State Route 674<br />

North, <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong>, the farmers cut<br />

and gather hay 1880s style.<br />

According to information provided by<br />

Metro Parks, hay seed in the 19th century<br />

was commonly sown in the fields of wheat,<br />

oats, or barley. The hay plants would grow<br />

while protected by the taller grain crop.<br />

After the grain was harvested the hay<br />

would keep growing making the field twice<br />

as useful for the farmer.<br />

Slate Run Living Historical Farm farmer Dave Trotter stands by the farm’s more than<br />

a century old hay loader.<br />

farmer Dave Trotter said the hay on this<br />

farm primarily consists of orchard grass,<br />

leaves, and timothy.<br />

According to Metro Parks information,<br />

clover for use as hay is higher in protein,<br />

which is good for the animals who eat it,<br />

and for soil enrichment. But Trotter added<br />

that clover also has disadvantages.<br />

“Clover is nutritionally nice,” said<br />

Trotter. “But it is hard to work with. It can<br />

dry out and shatter and turn to dust.”<br />

When the hay in the fields is ready to be<br />

gathered, it is mowed and then raked either<br />

by hand or by a horse drawn hay rake.<br />

A hay loader is used to place the hay on<br />

a wagon. Trotter said this machine<br />

replaced six people when it came to gathering<br />

hay in the 1880s as it enabled two people<br />

to do the work.<br />

“You have one person on the wagon and<br />

one person to drive the horses, (in this case<br />

large Percheron horses),” said Trotter.<br />

The particular hay loader the farmers<br />

use at Slate Run dates from the early<br />

1900s, but it has similarities to ones used<br />

in the 1880s. It is a formidable looking<br />

piece of machinery consisting of spikes,<br />

claws, chains, and gears on a wooden bed.<br />

At Slate Run Living Historical Farm,<br />

the farmers put the hay up in the barn<br />

loose rather than in bales.<br />

Most hay in the late 19th century was<br />

put up loose in the barn rather than baled<br />

because baling slowed the process and<br />

required more expensive equipment.<br />

Though some farmers might have baled<br />

some hay in those days to sell it at market.<br />

Once a wagon is piled high with hay it is<br />

wheeled to the barn where the loose hay is<br />

unloaded into the mow. While the hay<br />

could be pitched into the mow by hand<br />

using pitchforks, most farmers of that era<br />

used carriers and tracks to lift and move<br />

the hay.<br />

According to information provided by<br />

Metro Parks, the barn at Slate Run Living<br />

Historical Farm, which was built in 1881,<br />

was designed to use a track system. A grapple<br />

fork held the hay as it was lifted by a<br />

horse pulling on the hay rope. The fork<br />

latched into the carrier at the top of the<br />

barn and rolled along the track. Pulling a<br />

trip rope opened the fork allowing the hay<br />

to drop into the middle of the mow. The hay<br />

was pitched to the sides and more hay<br />

brought up.<br />

So, what’s the difference between hay<br />

and straw?<br />

Hay is the dried leaves, stems, and flowers<br />

of grasses that are used for animal feed.<br />

Straw is the dried stalks of grain plants<br />

such as oats, wheat, and barley that have<br />

been beaten or threshed to remove the seed.<br />

Straw was used for animal bedding as well<br />

as for garden mulch, fertilizer, stuffing<br />

horse collars, making hats, and strawboard.<br />

Staff Writer<br />

The swift, life-saving<br />

actions of Groveport<br />

Madison school bus driver<br />

La Shonna Tanyhill in May<br />

were honored by the<br />

Madison Township Fire<br />

Department at the Madison<br />

Township trustees’ May 28<br />

meeting.<br />

“On May 9, she (Tanyhill)<br />

was driving her normal<br />

route with 28 students,”<br />

said Madison Township Fire<br />

Chief Derek Robinson, who<br />

added everyone on the bus<br />

first noticed a smell before a<br />

noise and then the driver<br />

felt the bus handle differently.<br />

“She pulled over to the<br />

side of the road. A passerby<br />

stopped and said she saw<br />

possible smoke and flames<br />

coming from the bus. She<br />

(Tanyhill) got them (Middle<br />

School Central students) off<br />

the bus and into a safe<br />

zone.”<br />

Robinson said his department<br />

got a call about the situation<br />

at 3:14 p.m. and<br />

arrived on scene five minutes<br />

later. The school bus was completely<br />

engulfed in flames when firefighters<br />

arrived.<br />

“Because of her swift actions, everyone<br />

was safe,” said Robinson. “What she did<br />

was an incredible feat to protect those children.”<br />

•Madison Township Police Chief Gary<br />

York discussed a $155,536 Violent Crime<br />

Reduction Grant from the Ohio Criminal<br />

Justice Service to purchase five Flock license<br />

plate reader cameras for the township. The<br />

cameras can alert officers to stolen vehicles<br />

or a suspect in a violent crime.<br />

Grant funding will also be used to purchase<br />

a mobile surveillance trailer–which is<br />

equipped with remote cameras, strobes, flood<br />

lights, motion sensors, and speakers–used<br />

to monitor areas throughout the township.<br />

The township was the only agency in the<br />

county to receive the funding, which was<br />

the second highest awarded in the state.<br />

“The grant was specifically for Flock<br />

cameras and the surveillance trailer to<br />

help reduce crime,” said York. “This is very<br />

exciting. They do act as the gatekeepers of<br />

our community and a deterrent to crime.<br />

We’ll be able to move that to residential<br />

and commercial areas and even (sports)<br />

games.”<br />

Trustee Chairperson Katherine Chipps<br />

said, “I think this will be very helpful.”<br />

Story of a Bill, Part IV<br />

and Update on Getting<br />

President Biden on the<br />

November Ballot<br />

In previous communications with you, I have<br />

chronicled the journey of House Bill 364, a measure<br />

to allow the noncommercial distribution of<br />

milkweed seeds to promote monarch butterfly<br />

population growth, in its quest to be enacted<br />

into law. You may recall that the bill was referred<br />

to the House Agriculture Committee. Sponsor<br />

testimony, proponent testimony, and opponent<br />

testimony (of which there was none) was completed<br />

across two committee meetings.<br />

The measure was scheduled for a committee<br />

vote on May 6. Unfortunately, that vote was delayed<br />

due to a reorganization of the leadership<br />

of the committee. Don Jones, from Freeport in<br />

Harrison County, now serves as chair. He<br />

rescheduled the vote for May 20. It passed<br />

through the committee unanimously, 11 to 0.<br />

The bill is scheduled for a vote by the entire<br />

House on <strong>June</strong> 12. I will explain the measure to<br />

my Republican colleagues at our issues caucus<br />

the day prior, then will advocate for it on the<br />

House floor at Session before the vote. I am<br />

hopeful for a positive vote at that time. Assuming<br />

success, the bill then proceeds to the Senate<br />

for its consideration.<br />

As I wrote in my last column, I sponsored House<br />

Bill 2, a simple four-sentence, 26-line proposal to<br />

change the deadline for a major political party to<br />

name its presidential and vice presidential candidates<br />

to 65 days from 90 in <strong>2024</strong> during the<br />

Legislature’s Special Session called by Governor<br />

DeWine the week after Memorial Day. In the<br />

compressed timeframe, I filed the bill with the<br />

House Clerk’s Office on Tuesday morning that<br />

week at 8:00. At 10:00, I attended the meeting of<br />

the House Government Oversight Committee to<br />

provide sponsor testimony. The next day I was<br />

appointed to fill a temporary vacancy on the<br />

committee and was seated in time to hear proponent<br />

and opponent testimony. We voted it<br />

out of committee unanimously the following<br />

morning. It passed the House 63 to 31 later that<br />

day, with majorities from both parties voting in<br />

favor of it. The Senate then passed it 30 to 1 on<br />

Friday and the Governor signed it on Sunday,<br />

<strong>June</strong> 2.<br />

A few days later, I was invited to the Governor’s<br />

Office for the ceremonial signing of the bill.<br />

There Governor DeWine thanked me for sponsoring<br />

the bill that essentially assures that President<br />

Biden will appear on our November<br />

election ballot. He provided me a framed copy<br />

of the bill with the signatures of House Speaker<br />

Jason Stephens, Senate President Matt Huffman,<br />

and the Governor, along with the actual pen with<br />

which he signed it.<br />

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

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

parts of West, <strong>South</strong>west, and <strong>South</strong> Columbus,<br />

Grove City, Urbancrest, and portions of Franklin<br />

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

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

Beekeeper group marks<br />

its fifth anniversary<br />

The Fairfield County Beekeepers<br />

Association marked its fifth anniversary<br />

with a new meeting place and full<br />

Beginner Beekeeping classes.<br />

FCBA formed in 2019 to give beekeepers<br />

in or near Fairfield County a place to mingle<br />

with other beekeepers, learn about best<br />

management practices, provide outreach<br />

to the community about honey bees and<br />

the environment, and attract and train<br />

new beekeepers. When the club was told<br />

last November that it needed to find a new<br />

meeting place, the Central Ohio Coon<br />

Hunters Club, on Coonpath Road, offered<br />

their club house as a meeting place and a<br />

big open field for FCBA’s apiary. The Coon<br />

Hunters Club does conservation projects<br />

and plans to create an insect-friendly field<br />

of wildflowers. They were hoping to attract<br />

some bees and other pollinators to their<br />

property.<br />

Each November, news about the FCBA<br />

Beginner Beekeeping Scholarship goes out<br />

to schools, 4-H and agriculture groups,<br />

and to military veterans. The club offers<br />

scholarships covering a class, hives and<br />

bees, plus year-long mentoring for the<br />

scholarship recipients.<br />

Then in early spring, before the bees<br />

come out of their winter clusters, FCBA<br />

offers day-long educational trainings about<br />

how to begin beekeeping. The club helps<br />

newcomers get their woodenware hives<br />

and order bees. Once spring weather<br />

comes, the club offers twice monthly training<br />

in their training bee yard (apiary) for<br />

the new beekeepers. Experienced mentors<br />

are also assigned to those “NewBees” that<br />

want them.<br />

The club meets monthly, providing an<br />

educational speaker at each meeting, a<br />

chance to win a bee related door prize (all<br />

donated) and time to hang out and talk<br />

bees with other beekeepers. FCBA member<br />

volunteers do many outreach activities,<br />

like presentations for adult or young people’s<br />

groups and provide a huge display of<br />

hands-on artifacts about bees, activities for<br />

kids and a live observation hive at many<br />

festivals and fairs around Fairfield County.<br />

FCBA will have a live demonstration in<br />

the bee yard and a booth of hands-on artifacts<br />

for the Central Oho Coon Hunters<br />

Family Day in <strong>June</strong>. FCBA also sells raw,<br />

local honey from its members.<br />

FCBA meets every month except<br />

December on the third Tuesday of the<br />

month, at 7 p.m. The training bee yard is<br />

scheduled to meet at the club apiary on the<br />

property, at 6 p.m. on the Tuesday of the<br />

club meeting. There is typically another<br />

training yard demonstration on another<br />

Tuesday in the month, at 6 p.m. as well.<br />

Information about scheduled bee yard<br />

dates are on the group’s Facebook page.<br />

Visitors are welcome to attend a meeting<br />

to learn more. Information can be<br />

found on the club website at fairfieldcountybeekeepers.org<br />

and on the Facebook<br />

page, www.facebook.com/groups/fairfieldcountybeekeepers.org.<br />

Yearly membership<br />

is $15 for a single and $25 for a family One<br />

can join online at Square store,<br />

tinyurl.com/fcbashop. You don’t have to be<br />

a beekeeper to join.<br />

CW City Council<br />

<strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> City Council meetings<br />

are held on the first and third Monday<br />

of every month. Meetings begin at 7 p.m.<br />

The meetings are open to the public.<br />

Council meets in work session at 6 p.m.<br />

prior to each city council meeting to discuss<br />

legislative items and other issues of the<br />

city prior to being included on a city council<br />

agenda. The first work session of the<br />

month focuses on finance/economic development<br />

items and the second monthly<br />

work session focuses on service/safety<br />

items. While each work session includes<br />

specific areas of focus, other items may be<br />

brought before council as needed.<br />

Obetz Police news<br />

Obetz Police Chief Mike Confer reported<br />

at the May 13 Obetz City Council meeting<br />

that the Flock cameras installed in<br />

Obetz have picked up “at least five stolen<br />

vehicles.” He also said there has been<br />

extra traffic enforcement on Groveport<br />

Road and Rathmell Road.<br />

Wood and fabric weave<br />

a family’s history<br />

Years ago, when my grandmother gave<br />

up her belongings because of ill health and<br />

moved to a nursing home, I told my mother<br />

and aunt I wanted to be the next in line for<br />

my grandparents’ dining room set.<br />

Linda<br />

Dillman<br />

Places<br />

Consisting of a<br />

wonderful old sideboard,<br />

matching oak<br />

table and chairs, and<br />

a simple glass fronted<br />

hutch (which I didn’t<br />

want at the time, but<br />

later gratefully rehomed<br />

from a cousin),<br />

the set was the keeper<br />

of so many memories<br />

of our small family.<br />

It served many<br />

purposes throughout<br />

the decades and it<br />

occupied center stage<br />

in my grandparents’<br />

dining room. My grandpa played cassette<br />

tapes of classical music on a small, boxy<br />

player sitting in the middle of the sideboard.<br />

Sunday afternoons were filled with<br />

music as my grandma fixed after-church<br />

lunches for all five of us–me, my parents<br />

and my grandparents.<br />

On holidays, the numbers swelled to<br />

include my aunt, uncle and cousins.<br />

During the week, the dining room table<br />

sometimes turned into a makeshift cutting<br />

board, where my grandma carefully turned<br />

fabric into mosaic pieces she handcrafted<br />

into heirloom quilts. Her stitches were so<br />

even, it gave the appearance they were<br />

done by a machine.<br />

I remember so many times visiting my<br />

grandparents and seeing a quilt in<br />

progress carefully stretched on a frame in<br />

the dining room. It was strategically located<br />

beneath a north window with bright sun<br />

and forsythia framing the view.<br />

Throughout the years and thousands of<br />

miles that the table set and sideboard traveled<br />

with us across America and the Pacific<br />

Ocean to Japan, it endured. It was a silent<br />

witness to birthdays and holidays in a foreign<br />

land, served as a project assembly<br />

line, and absorbed the tears of emotional<br />

highs and lows.<br />

We once had the opportunity to purchase<br />

a handsome, eight-seat rosewood<br />

table set in Japan just months before we<br />

CW Library Branch<br />

transferred back to the states. At the time,<br />

1989, Lazarus was selling a similar set for<br />

over $10,000. This one was priced at<br />

$3,000.<br />

Right before we signed the order, my<br />

husband turned to me and asked what we<br />

were going to do with my grandparents’<br />

dining room furniture. We would never<br />

have the space for two large sets, even if<br />

one was repurposed.<br />

I looked at him, at the beautiful rosewood<br />

dining room table, and told the salesperson,<br />

sorry, but we would not be placing<br />

the order.<br />

Over time, I reupholstered the chairs<br />

many times, but never removed their original<br />

yellowing faux leather covering. I just<br />

could not throw away the fabric that once<br />

touched not only my grandparents, but relatives<br />

I only knew through memories<br />

shared throughout the years.<br />

Eventually, the glue holding the chairs<br />

together began to dry, causing the legs and<br />

supporting cross bars to loosen. The chairs<br />

became wiggly despite my best efforts and<br />

my husband I started talking about getting<br />

them repaired. Generally, this happened<br />

after the latest family dinner, but the talk<br />

went on for years.<br />

One day we finally loaded up the<br />

chairs–I carted the captain’s chair in my<br />

hatchback and a side chair in the front seat<br />

and my husband wrestled the rest into his<br />

car. He found a qualified and experienced<br />

furniture restorer not far from where we<br />

live.<br />

A week later we got a call the chairs<br />

were ready and we picked them up later<br />

that afternoon. The wiggle was gone. The<br />

chairs felt more solid than the day they<br />

first came into our stewardship. They were<br />

loaded back into our cars in the same order<br />

they were delivered to the restorer.<br />

On the way home, I held onto the chair<br />

the same way I put my hand across one of<br />

our daughters when they were small when<br />

I had to stop fast. I don’t know why I did<br />

that. The chair was secure in the seat, but<br />

I felt protective of it.<br />

My grandpa passed away in 1978, a<br />

year after our first daughter was born. My<br />

grandma passed away in 1983, a year after<br />

our second daughter was born.<br />

Maybe the old oak chair brought them<br />

close to me again.<br />

Maybe it made me reconnect with their<br />

memories.<br />

All I know is they hold the stories of our<br />

family deep within their wood and fabric<br />

and it is up to me to pass that along.<br />
