Commissioner's Corner - May 2019

No comments:
May was acting like April more than April did. April showers became May showers and floods for most of the month. This has been one of the wettest months I can remember and I bet almost every farmer in Darke County will tell you the same.

May is the month where we do a lot of preparation for the second half of the year. We have had proclamations declared, had meetings for CDBG (Community Development Block Grant), and CHIP (Community Housing Improvement Program) to apply for grants that will help surrounding communities infrastructure. We have had meetings with our Insurance programs, CORSA our liability coverage (yes that includes the fairgrounds) and CEBCO which covers our health Insurance coverage, and we are gearing up for budgeting in June. The budgeting process this early helps give us an indication of what we can expect for next year. Many counties do not do mid-year budget review, but we feel it is an important tool to help us prepare.

Despite the bad weather, Darke County seems to continue to show growth from our companies. Midmark seems to be creeping along because of weather, but they are still moving forward on their R&D facility in Versailles. Versailles also has a couple of housing developments proceeding as well. Wayne Lakes is working on their sewer system planning, Arcanum with their administration building, and New Madison with their water tower all continue to move these projects forward.

Ansonia also is looking at a few housing projects and so is Greenville. Congratulations to JAFE GLASS and their new expansion project. It is amazing how this little company has grown the last several years and we Commissioners are glad we can help with funds through the Revolving loan Fund. Greenville’s North Broadway reconstruction is coming along nicely as is the YOLO Park uptown. The Sweitzer Street/ 4th street construction turned out very well for the city too. These improvement projects have enhanced the city. The Darke County Animal Shelter has been very successful in redeeming and adopting dogs out. It averages out to about 1 a day. Scentral Park, the adjacent dog park is getting its yearly spruce up from the Friends of the Shelter. This dedicated group of people have been invaluable in helping make the Animal Shelter one of the best around.

Thanks to all of them!

May and its wet weather is now over. Now our farmers can get in the fields, hopefully and get crops planted. But, if you are not a farmer, why don’t you come up to a Commissioner’s meeting? We meet every Monday and Wednesday at 1:00 p.m. in the Commissioner’s Office south of the
Courthouse in Greenville. Hope to see you there!

Mike and Sherri Jones—Renovators and Garst Honorees

No comments:
Annie is looking over the shoulder of Mike & Sherri Jones
in front of  227 E. Third Street, which they renovated.  The stone marker
in the background notes that this was the final residence of Annie Oakley.
Mike and Sherri Jones are being recognized as this year’s Annie’s Star-Spangled Gala Honorees for the renovation of the property at 227 East Third Street, which was known as the Brodrick & Zemer Boarding House. It is here that Annie Oakley died, and the Joneses have established a stone marker at the site noting its historical significance. The structure has been brought back to its original glory, and there is supporting documentation from the doctor who cared for Annie Oakley in her last days as to where her bedroom was in the house. Mike became frustrated when the tour bus during the Annie Oakley Festival would come by the dilapidated house and talk about its history. His thinking was that this should not be the last thing that people who come to Greenville should see.

The Brodrick & Zemer Boarding House is only one in a number of notable structures the Joneses have renovated. In fact, the Joneses have renovated numerous properties in Greenville to date. This passion for preservation unfortunately that started when Mike was home on leave from the Army and learned that the State Theater, formerly the old opera house, had been torn down. It was magnificent with its three-story stage, five dressing rooms, orchestra pit, and two floors of apartments for the performers. He felt that “someone should have bought it, put money into it, and saved it…for the future. It was such a loss.” This became his mission—home by home.

The Joneses’ commitment to community preservation can be seen in the glorious St. Clair Manor, which was built as a home for women by Arthur St. Clair. It too had been saved from the wrecking ball and boasts 100 new windows, insulation, a repaired slate roof, new plaster and paint, sanded hardwood floors, and a quaint porch and car port surrounded with beautiful landscaping. During the renovation, workers were able to save the beautiful 8’ x 9’ built-in cabinet that defines the dining room. This is truly a wonderful venue to host any special occasion.

Just around the corner is the Craig House (also known to some as the Fry House) at 202 East Main Street, which is at the corner of Main and Walnut Streets. The building patent (now known as a permit) was taken out in the 1820s by James Craig, who built the first of the county’s two courthouses. The house has pinned hand-hewn floor joists and ceiling joists, not to mention the five hearths in the basement that were used for baking. This is definitely a beautiful memorial to the skilled craftsmen of yesteryear.

Not far down the street is the residence at 307 East Main Street uniquely identifiable by its wrap-around front porch with a quintessential sunroom on the east side of the sprawling veranda. Nearly destroyed by water, the 1861 home was saved and catches the eye of drivers daily.
These century-old homes are distinctive and have a special place in the City of Greenville. Thanks for the memories, Mike and Sherri Jones. You so deserve to be honored by the Garst Gala Committee.
