Three months after unprecedented rainfall brought severe flooding to the area, residents of Laynecrest Manor Apartments on Gerlaugh Road are finally beginning to move back in. The Long-Term Recovery Committee, created in response to the May 21 flooding, is now working with several regional resources in providing furniture and storage for affected families.

Lisa D’Allessandris, Director of Clark County EMA, said the LTRC has available funds donated by the community that they will extend to families requiring assistance with the move-in process. D’Allessandris said nine families have applied with the LTRC for help, mostly with furniture at this point. She said eight new queen/twin mattresses and a toddler bed and a crib have been purchased so far. The Clark County Combined Health District, Red Cross, St. Vincent De Paul, and EMA have assisted the LTRC with various tasks and donations, D’Allessandris said.

Article & Pictures By Jim Copes

The Ohio Crush finished their regular season at home Saturday afternoon against the Michigan Vipers. Finishing strong with a score of 40-20, the Crush earned their way to the playoffs. The playoffs begin September 6th, so that gives the Crush plenty of time to really sharpen their skills and heal up. If they win on the 6th, then they play again on the 13th. The Ohio Crush have earned home field advantage all through the playoffs. Playoff games will be on Saturday as usual, but the time will be 4:00 instead of 5:00 due to the days getting shorter.

Entering his 21st year in the field of education, Jay Burkholder will exchange the 28 fifth-graders in his classroom for more than 400 students as he assumes the role of Principal at Donnelsville Elementary School.

“Instead of 28 or 29 students, I now have 450,” said Burkholder. “I hope to make the same kinds of progress with them as I have in the classroom,” he said.

Burkholder, 42 (a very young 42, he said), is a graduate of Cedarville University, has been teaching fifth-grade in the Tecumseh Local School District for the past 20 years. Upon graduation, he took a job at Park Layne Elementary, where he taught for 17 years before moving to New Carlisle Elementary in the district’s redistribution of grade levels.

Olive Branch H.S. Added To List of Ohio’s Most Endangered Historic Sites PDF Print E-mail

Preservation Ohio, Ohio’s oldest statewide preservation organization, announces the 2014 Ohio’s Most Endangered Historic Sites.

Gleaned from properties submitted statewide, these properties represent 11 of the most notable and fragile properties. Some have been destined for demolition and others are falling to demolition because of lack of maintenance and care. Either way, their loss will deeply affect their community and reduce our list of historic properties statewide. The list below tells the story of everything from an airport terminal to a farmstead -- mansions and those of a humble origin.

Preservation Ohio hopes that the attention brought to these properties through this listing will alert others to their plight and perhaps those of other properties statewide.

Sometimes it takes one play to turn everything around.

The Tecumseh football team capitalized on a big fourth quarter touchdown to take the lead, then relied on their steady defense down the stretch to maintain the advantage, as the Arrows won their second game on the young season 18-17 over the Butler Aviators on Friday night at Spitzer Stadium.

Community Involvement Group Fights Crime PDF Print E-mail

Despite the threat of thunderstorms, hundreds of Bethel Township residents attended last Saturday’s Day Out Against Crime at Raynor Park. Attendees mingled with local law enforcement officials, played games, and enjoyed delicious food during the event aimed at proactively preventing crime in the community.

The Bethel Township Community Involvement Group organized the weekend event, with their proceeds going help with the cost of the group’s monthly dinners, held the last Thursday of each month. Organizers said they were “in the hole” as far as profits were concerned for the event, but that the loss was offset by the many area children who attended and genuinely enjoyed themselves with their families.

Clark County Sheriff Gene Kelly was on-hand to speak with attendees, as were members of the Bethel Township Fire Department and Fire Pup. Children enjoyed the bouncy houses as parents savored the good food, including burgers, hot dogs, walking tacos, and even cabbage rolls. Prescription drug take-back services were also offered during Saturday’s event, providing a much-needed outlet in which to dispose of potentially dangerous unwanted medications since the township’s take-back box was removed from New Carlisle.

Cricket Lee and Mike Smith of the Bethel Township Community Involvement Group estimated between 200 and 300 residents attended the anti-crime party, saying they were happy to see so many children there. Lee said the children played free games and collected tickets, which were then redeemed for school supplies to equip them for the coming school year.

Lee said the Bethel Township Community Involvement Group is currently looking for volunteers to become members of the organization. He said some of the group’s current members were getting older and finding it more difficult to give their time to the cause, and that the group operates primarily through the generosity of its members. To volunteer with the Bethel Township Community Involvement Group, contact group President Ethel Blue and (937) 849-0482.

Copes Is Air Force Museum’s Newest Shutterbug PDF Print E-mail

Retired Tecumseh teacher’s versatility behind the lens earns him access to all curated planes.

After ending what he considers an “amazing career” with Tecumseh Local Schools, Jim Copes recently embarked on a new journey as he accepted a volunteer position with the United States Museum of the Air Force.

 

Copes, who taught English to sophomores at Tecumseh High School for 32 years, said he is enjoying retirement because of his ability to dabble in his hobby of photography, yet not make it into another job. “I like having the ability to say, ‘no, I don’t want to do that,’” said Copes. His new volunteer position at the Air Force Museum will afford him all the benefits of retirement, as he will be able to essentially create his own schedule, and work on his own time.

After falling off of a ladder a few years ago, Copes shattered his heel plate, and his surgeon told him he would likely never walk again. It took him nearly a year to walk again, and another to learn to walk proficiently. He said he had always dabbled in photography throughout his life, but after regaining the ability to walk, Copes began to really get into the hobby, as it allowed him to move about and capture the action surrounding him. A lover of the human form, Copes said although his style varies widely, his favorite subjects to shoot are human beings and animals.

The state provides money to local governments for some of their operating revenue. Those funds are channeled through the county, and the allocation of funds is determined by the County Budget Commission.

New Carlisle City Council had before them a resolution to approve that allocation. New Carlisle was allocated .7182% of the funds, or about $28,000. The City of Springfield, for example, was allocated 48.18%, Bethel Township .9715% and Pike Township .2944%.
