Aging-in-place program

GVS OKs $1,500 to conduct survey By GARY SEMAN JR. ThisWeek Community Newspapers A German Village group soon will send out a communitywide survey seeking input on a proposed aging-in-place program. The German Village Society’s board of trustees on May 2 approved spending $1,500 for mailing the questionnaires to each of the neighborhood’s 2,100 households.

The surveys will be distributed in midMay. Carolyn McCall, who chairs the society’s long-range planning committee, said the survey is designed to gauge interest in German Village Connections, an organization that would provide a number of services for seniors who couldn’t otherwise perform the tasks themselves. For nine months, the committee has been building the structure for the program. McCall said the responses could

help the committee decide whether to pursue German Village Connections or give it up entirely. “I think it’s going to be a key decisionmaker,” she said. “If it’s going to be an overwhelming response, it’s full-steam ahead.” The survey asks, among other questions, whether residents would be interested in the services, whether they’d be willing to pay dues and if they’d volunteer.

GVS board president Brian Santin said some of the questions were vague and he would like to see them be clearer. “I just want to make sure we’re providing the most effective means of sampling the community,” he said. McCall said the committee would evaluate the responses to determine the next course of action. The committee is on course with its planning and will make its decision on German Village Connections by the end of the year.

In other news from the meeting, Wayne Owens, founder and general manager of the Village Singers, reminded the board that the group’s next concert is slated for 7 p.m. May 14 and 2 p.m. May 15 at the Meeting Haus, 588 S. Third St. The vocal group will perform “An American Songbook,” featuring numbers from American songwriters and musicians. Admission is $10 at the door.

Police luncheon

Residents: decorative plants are targets for thieves By GARY SEMAN JR. ThisWeek Community Newspapers

By Chris Parker/ThisWeek

Sue Meigs, owner of theDogWorks/cats2, holds Beaver the cat at her pet-supply store in German VIllage April 28. Meigs and her shop will participate in the annual “Mother May I” event Saturday, May 7, when local merchants will offer free samples and discounted items in honor of Mother’s Day. Meigs said she’s giving away pet treats and will donate half of the proceeds from her “momma cat” clearance items to Save the Wild Side, a local spaying and neutering organization.

‘Mother May I’ honors moms of all kinds By GARY SEMAN JR. ThisWeek Community Newspapers Mother’s Day celebrates moms of all styles. During the “Mother May I” event in German Village, theDogWorks/cats2 also will help celebrate mothers of the four-legged variety. The German Village pet-supply shop is among many local merchants participating in the fifth annual event, to be held throughout the day May 7, the Saturday before Mother’s Day. “We definitely have a strong pet population down here,” said Sue Meigs, owner of the store, 195 Thurman Ave. Meigs said she’s giving away pet treats and will donate half of the proceeds from her “momma cat” clearance items to Save the Wild Side, a local spaying and neutering organization. She said adoptable kittens also would be available at the store. A fee will pay for spaying or neutering and associated costs.

It’s a great way for us to show we really do support women and all the mothers and say ‘thank you.’ It’s a great event. It’s a kitschy, fun event.

HALI ROBINSON director of Muse Gallery

Patrons also will have the chance to win two gift baskets valued at more than $200 each. They must register their names at each participating business. The more businesses they visit, the better their chances of winning, said Jeff Lowe, co-owner of Village Pet Supply, 740 S. High St. Lowe and

partner Greg Gamier are co-chairs of this year’s Mother May I event, sponsored by the German Village Business Community. The baskets will contain such items as a family pack to the Columbus Clippers and gift certificates to the Book Loft and a number of area restaurants. Gamier called Mother May I “a great summertime kickoff.” “See the best the village has to offer in unique shops and eateries featuring various specials and treats geared to please mothers, sisters and friends alike,” he said. “Make it a bonding experience with mom or simply enjoy a delightful afternoon with friends.” Muse Gallery, which is new to the area, donated to the gift basket and will offer tea and cookies and 10 percent off anything in the gallery that day, providing patrons mention Mother May I. See MOTHER MAY I, page A2

When the weather turns warmer, it seems almost anything can be a target for thieves in German Village. Even plants. At the monthly police luncheon April 28 at the Meeting Haus, residents shared anecdotes of decorative potted plants being stolen from houses and businesses and resold at other venues. Jerry Glick, who organizes the luncheons on behalf of the German Village Society, said Frank Fetch Park has experienced its share of bandits in the past. Many years ago, crooks nabbed several plants from the park. But devotees of the greenspace had stuck identifying markers deep into the soil, he said. The flowers were recovered when the thieves were detected trying to sell the merchandise at a South Side flea market, Glick said. “There have been over the years a number of pots and plants stolen from residents and many of them occurred just before Mother’s Day and in the spring when some independent landscapers were in need of plants for an installation project,” Glick said after the meeting. “It may also include outside furniture, as well. “Everyone should be on the lookout. Reputable landscapers would not resort to this. Be careful who you hire.” Police also encouraged residents to keep their front doors locked while they’re landscaping in the backyard. Lt. Ron Kemmerling said it’s not uncommon for bandits to enter properties and make off with credit cards, cash and other valuables while homeowners are doing yard work in the back. In related news, safety officials said a recent moratorium declared by local scrap dealers on purchasing retail air-conditioners and parts seems to be working. See POLICE LUNCHEON, page A2

GartenMarkt to showcase bright colors, wide variety of plants By GARY SEMAN JR. ThisWeek Community Newspapers Phil Keller is all about fitting a large array of colors into a small amount of space. Keller, owner of Moss Baskets by Keller in Powell, is one of 10 vendors participating in this year’s GartenMarkt, sponsored by the German Village Garten Club. He fills his baskets, made of moss or fiber, with such plants as petunias, geraniums, million bells, lobelia, torenia

and verbena to maximize flair. “I like to think they almost look like carnival colors, very vibrant and bright,” Keller said. “I kind of think of these as being like an art form. The color screams at you. That’s what I go for.” The 45th annual GartenMarkt will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 7, at the German Village Meeting Haus, 588 S. Third St. Admission is free. “The GartenMarkt team has looked far and wide for new plants, healthy plants, multiple colors and textures to

give everyone an opportunity to fill their garden spaces and window boxes with only the best material,” said Carol Porter, a member of the Garten Club. Porter said popular plants — including phantom and Picasso petunias, orchids of multiple colors and Rocky Mountain red geraniums — would make returns. Gardening specialists will lend their expertise to market customers, Porter said. “Some of our professional experts are going to tell you how to make your

pots or landscaping beautiful by mixing different textures, not just colors but textures,” she said. Also, the event will feature a tent filled with baked goods, plus grilled portobello mushrooms and bratwursts. Coffee and water will be available, as well. The GartenMarkt will be preceded by Jazz and Juleps, scheduled from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, May 6, at the Meeting Haus. Admission is $25.

In brief

POLICE LUNCHEON Continued from page A1 George Speaks, deputy director of the Columbus Department of Public Safety, said the amount of copper taken from air-conditioning units is down, although he wouldn’t say how much. Speaks, who was not at the meeting, said po-

lice will have final figures after the 30-day moratorium expires in the middle of May. Still, police are urging residents to mark their property with invisible-ink pens, which are available at local Fastenal stores. The pens are $3.53 each.

MOTHER MAY I Continued from page A1 Hali Robinson, director of the gallery, said female artists provide a great deal of Muse’s artwork. “It’s a great way for us to show we really do support women and all the mothers and say ‘thank

you,’” she said. “It’s a great event. It’s a kitschy, fun event. “People are excited to get out for the day and get around and explore the village. I think it’s a good way for people to become acquainted with their community.”

LifeCare Alliance honors volunteers LifeCare Alliance, a central Ohio Meals on Wheels provider, recently honored individuals, groups and corporations for their work as volunteers during an annual volunteer recognition event. German Village residents recognized included David Todd, who received the Matt Taylor Spirit Award, and Margaret Wills, who received the Project OpenHand Columbus Volunteer Spirit Award. Project Search, an agency based in German Village, received the Meals on Wheels Spirit Award.

‘Mother May I’ ... visit the GartenMarkt this weekend? Now that we’re recovered from royal wedding mania, we can focus our energies on the upcoming weekend — Mother’s Day in German Village. (Though, I suppose it will be tough for anyone to top Kate Middleton’s mom this year; mother of the future queen of England is a pretty hefty gift!) Mother May I, which will be held May 7, has become a tradition and signature event for the German Village Business Community and it truly is not to be missed. What better way to treat your mom to a special Mother’s Day than taking her shopping in German Village this Saturday? Or, if not shopping, what about a stroll in Schiller Park? Or taking a walk down any one of the picturesque and historic streets? Or relaxing in Frank Fetch Park? Or eating in any one of the neighborhood’s amazing restaurants, running the gamut from fun casual to fine dining? In short, there’s lots to do and lots of places to do it in German Village. The welcome mats will be out, each business will have an extra special treat for visitors and the energy will be high. A huge reason that this weekend is so anticipated each year is

that it also coincides with the GartenMarkt. If your mom likes all things about gardens, the platz at the JODY Meeting Haus GRAICHEN is where you’ll want to take her. Not only will people be roaming our streets for Mother May I, but Third Street between Beck and Willow will be hopping for the plant sale. Every year the German Village Garten Club outdoes itself when it comes to the variety of plants and garden accessories for sale. This year will be no different. Friday night, May 6, is the Garten Club’s one and only fundraiser, Jazz and Juleps, and it serves as a presale and cocktail party for Saturday’s GartenMarkt. Proceeds benefit the award-winning programs and projects of the Garten Club, including upkeep of Frank Fetch Park and 27 Third Street flower boxes, publication of “The Bloomin’ Pot” newsletter, organization of Third Sunday concerts in Fetch Park and devel-

opment of educational programming. For more information or to RSVP for Jazz and Juleps (because it sells out fast and reservations are a must!), visit This weekend’s events are all about celebrating the village and its vitality. People from outside the boundaries of our historic district visit, shop, dine and stroll in order to be somewhere so very, very different and yet close to home, to experience something new yet old at the same time and to learn about the history of this part of Columbus. They may not realize they are doing all of that when they set off to buy a new plant, but everyone knows without question that a trip to German Village is more than your average “trip” anywhere else. Sure, you could go to any greenhouse or big-box store to buy a plant and to any mall to buy a Mother’s Day gift, but when the streets and shops of German Village are available, why would you go anywhere else?

Jody Graichen is director of historic preservation programs for the German Village Society.

As it were

The city itself is the single monument to Joel Wright He is one of the more elusive men in the story of Columbus. Joel Wright is also one of the more important ones. Because of Wright, the whole downtown of Columbus is where it is, is named as it is and is laid out on lines that are still followed today. There is no picture, no portrait, no sketch of this remarkable man. Wright was a member of the Society of Friends, called Quakers, and most Quakers shunned pictures as a waste of time and effort. Because of the memories of his friends and acquaintances, we know a little bit about him. He was tall and strong and generally quite fit. He wore the long plain coat of the Quakers, with its large pockets with flaps folded over. He sported knee-length stockings and plain leather shoes. Both the buckles at his knees and on his shoes were made of silver and were a modest display of the success he had made of himself in Ohio. Born in 1750, Wright had missed most of the American Revolution and became known as a man who provided his own passage. Wright was a surveyor and by definition one of the few literate and well-read men in an often illiterate frontier society. In the years after the American Revolution, he spent most of his time surveying the upper reaches of the Scioto, Muskingum and Miami rivers. He also was a town planner and helped lay out Dayton, Ohio, and Louisville, Kentucky, among other places. After the death of his wife, Wright decided to follow his grown children into the Ohio country and eventually came to call the area around Waynesville his home. In spring 1812, he was called from southwest Ohio to do once more what he did best, only this time with even more attention to

detail. Ohio in 1812 was a state in search of itself. Established in 1803, Ohio was the first state carved ED out of the Northwest LENTZ Territory that had become a section of British America in 1763 and part of the newly established United States in 1783. A nation mired in debt and with little income used this vast expanse of land to pay its soldiers’ past-due wages. It sold the remaining land to anyone who wanted to buy. Because Ohio was closer to the east, it became the site of immense land grants to people from north and south, as well as people burned out by the British and even a colony of expatriate French settlers. The land immediately across

the Scioto from frontier Franklinton was called the “High Banks opposite Franklinton at the Forks of the Scioto known as Wolf’s Ridge.” Most of the land, from Fifth Avenue on the north to Refugee Road on the south, was set aside for residents of Nova Scotia who had lost property because they had favored the American cause. Desperate for support, many of these people sold their land warrants to speculators and never came to Ohio. Some of the few who did settled near Broad Street and named their home after the place they left: Truro Township in Nova Scotia. By 1812, much of the land on that high ridge opposite Franklinton was empty. As such it became a place to examine as Ohio began looking for a new state capital. The first capital was at Chillicothe, a town along the Scioto River. Unlike the river towns of

Continued from page A4 Marietta and Cincinnati, Chillicothe was a small frontier village and representative of the common people who were settling the new land. It also was directly below Adena, the hilltop estate of Ohio founder Thomas Worthington. Responding to requests for a more northern location, the capital city had been located briefly in Zanesville before being moved back to Chillicothe. In February 1812, after looking at many sites, the Ohio General Assembly chose the High Banks opposite Franklinton as its new home. Joel Wright came from southwest Ohio to carve that new capital city from the wilderness. Working with local surveyor Joseph Vance, Wright laid out the town of Columbus in April 1812. He picked the site of Statehouse Square and a 10-acre site for a penitentiary, where the Cultural Arts Center is today. He filed a report with the general assembly, listing all of his expenses, including the $2.43 for his journey to central Ohio. Wright’s expenses included the cost of paper and other supplies and his room and board. All of his expenses, including his trip home, came to $17.62. It is fair to say in retrospect that Ohio got its money’s worth. By June 1812, the first sale of lots occurred. James Kilbourne of Worthington paid $1,000 for a corner lot at Broad and High. Other nearby lots went for several hundred dollars each. Sales abruptly slowed when it was later learned that America had gone to war with Britain on the same day, June 18, that the sale had been held. Wright returned to Columbus in 1813 to oversee the construction of the penitentiary. When it was under way, he resigned his position as “director of Columbus.” He went home and lived in the Quaker community of Springboro until his death in 1829. There is no statue of Joel Wright in Columbus, and Wright would have been appalled if one had been erected. The capital city was his monument and a source of pride to him. Ed Lentz writes a history column for ThisWeek.
