The heartbreak after the devastating fires on the Hawaiian island of Maui is being felt by central Ohioans and those with ties to Columbus.
On the menu at J-Pops, a local popsicle company, is a flavored called Maui Fruit Stand. It’s inspired by visits Steven White, the company’s owner, has taken to the island. The flavor has been around for several months. Now, the name Lisa has been put in front of it making it, “Lisa’s Maui Fruit Stand.”
“To see what is happening to not just her but to the people, it’s like what can we do to help out. Especially when something hits home like that,” White said.
Find J-POPS in Booth #12 on the Southwest Village Green.

Pick Up After Your Pooch
Poop, it happens. Follow Franklin Soil and Water Conservation District ‘s program and P.U.P. (Pick Up Poop) then pop the poop in the LANDFILL side of our downtown waste collection bins.
Because poop is a contaminant when it comes to recycle collection. And could lead to the entire recycling collection being sent to the landfill.
But isn’t it natural? Shouldn’t I leave it to fertilize the soil?
Your pet does not eat a natural local diet. Their waste washes into the storm drains and “Dog waste contains nitrogen and phosphorus, which can deplete oxygen that fish and other water-based life need to survive, as well as encourage the growth of harmful algae.
It is also considered a significant source of pathogens like fecal coliform, a disease-causing bacteria” (www.usda.gov)
