Intro:  Richard Coyan

Speaker(s): Ryan Scribner, the Economic Director of Pickaway Progress Partnership

Highlights:

*We are part of the Columbus Region & Columbus 2020

*Shared Columbus Region's 10-year goals

*Pickaway plays a disproportionate share (to the positive) of what is going on in the region.

*P3 has only two staff members, Ryan and his assistant Stacy Sark, but they have 26 board members

*P3 serves as a liaison & catalyst to create a positive business environment:=

*BR&E:(Business Retention & Expansion). 

      *Attract new businesses to our community

*Try to be specific about the area they focus upon, geographically as well economically.

*Increase in businesses leads to increase in retail & housing.

*Gave examples:

*Health Care Logistics: investing again in our community & have completed a recent expansion.

*DuPont: Promoted to ODOT to the increase in road safety issues for their employees.  ODOT first declined to help citing "not enough accidents have happened yet."

*General Electric: Spoke of intent to close the facility, so P3 is working with GE & its employees to retain their business.

*Listed quickly some of the other entities with whom they've worked &/or working

*Shared a bit about 12 of their projects, but there are plenty more than that.

*Pickaway Progress Park (former Thomson-RCA site): Grant via P3 to transform that site into one of the premiere industrial sites in the state.

*Roundtown Trail: After years of development, a groundbreaking was recently conducted.  Construction has begun for this trail to connect several parts of our community, and hopefully more in the future.

*OCU-Southern Gateway Innovation Center: will help to attract new businesses, as well as our existing employers.

*15,000 organizations around the world are competing for businesses, so the competition is very tough.

*Rickenbacker- Intermodal: Completed about 2 1/2 years ago, and it opened the are for several businesses already.  Spoke of how some of those businesses are expanding & increasing their workforce,

*Spoke of Sofidel: Italian company that makes tissue, toilet paper, & other paper products.  Ryan reached out to them two years ago!  They had originally eliminated Ohio, but Ryan had a chance to go to Italy & pitch our community to them.  They chose us!!  (Thank you to Ryan & P3 for getting this done!!)

*Ryan explained that P3's budget is too small to support complex travels.  His relationship with Kenny of Columbus 2020 allowed for Ryan/P3 to make the trips he made overseas to court businesses such as Sofidel.

*Ryan thanked those in the community who had the vision to create, and then support P3.

*Around 1,700 jobs created can be tied back to P3's efforts.

*P3 has 13 projects that are pending.

*Mentioned some of P3's challenges, such as land use "friction points" and workforce supply & training. (Pickaway is at 4.3% unemployment rate.)

*"Pipeline" is full of projects, but it can also be a challenge for only two staff members.  Stated that their relationship with other groups is pivotal to getting these projects executed.

Intro: Tony Chamberlain

Speaker(s): Todd Fortner, Special Agent with BCI, under the offices of Mike DeWine.

Highlights:

* Crime Scene Processing is Todd's specific unit

*Started of as fingerprinting & background check categorizing

*1990 the opened a new building that is their main lab now.

*He mentioned the several office they have in different locations

*They started as just fingerprint cards in their identification division, but then opened an investigation division & evidence processing division.

*Now have a division that deals with Cyber Crimes, as well as one that handles illegal drugs (meth, etc.).

*"Nothing like the CSI on TV."  "It's a dirty job with long hours."

*He was one of the investigators on the Piketon case.  It's one of the biggest investigation in the state of Ohio.

*Free service to local law enforcement.

*As far as he's aware of, Dayton & Cincinnati are the only others ones who have their own lab.

*Most of the scenes are simple, and can be wrapped up at that moment.  Other complex ones can last days.

*A very high percentage of their cases are drug-related

*Discussed some of their routine steps & methods.

*Mentioned the recent questioning of the validity of ballistic evidence.  He expressed his concerns if it is deemed unreliable.  Bite marks are less reliable.

*Discussed the testing of rape kit's evidence.  Science & technology has improved vastly over the recent years. Can now get a DNA sample from just one blood cell, whereas it used to be a dime-sized sample was needed.

*Increase in volume of kits being tested has been difficult, but the labs are catching up.  All samples from all types of evidence kits need to be prioritized.

*Tours are offered, but he doesn't know the exact requirements if they can be done by groups only or if can be done for individuals

*BCI officers are licensed peace officers with arrest authority, but work only on scenes at the request of other law enforcement agencies.

*DNA evidence turn-around time used to be 160 days, but now the average is 20 days.  Mike DeWine has pushed to get to that lessened time-period.

Intro: Jayme Fountain, Rotary Group Study Exchange Team to São Paulo, Brazil

Speaker(s): Will Fountain & Sarah Ott , two of the GSE team members

Highlights:

* Will & Sarah gave a brief history of themselves  and other group's members

*Shared information about the São Paulo.

*Took 4 hours to drive, in good traffic, from one side to the other.  They did point out that beer, pork rinds, etc. were being sold along the freeway while you were stuck in the traffic.

*They visited hospitals, government offices, etc.  They also went to 9 Rotary clubs.

*Language is similar to Spanish, but pronounced completely different.  Very hard to understand & speak.

*The president of Brazil was impeached within a 1 & 1/2 weeks of their arrival

*Food was good.  Same meal served at every lunch & dinner: rice, beans, meats, & salad with a balsamic vinegarette. 

*Brazil loves their sweets, and finish every meal with a sweet of some sort.

Untitled

*This is the revival of the original Rotary GSE program

*Remainder of their program consisted of photos, and opened the floor to any questions

*Shared some of the differences they observed, both culturally and logistically.

*They learned that Brazil has no funding for any medical or pharmaceutical R&D.

*Rotary is a very recognizable organization there.  Rotarians wear their Rotary pins everywhere.

*They witnessed some of the Olympics preparations.  When they asked São Paulo citizens about if they were excited about the Olympics arriving, all replies were negative.  The people expressed that they were concerned because their country was in a recession and they felt the government did not have funds for it.

*Revealed that the hot water is on-demand via an electrical element directly in the shower head.  All of the group's hots offered them rubber flip-flops, which they later learned was to help avoid electrocution.

* There was a hospital in a smaller town, that we would compare to a clinic in USA.

*Rotary clubs passed out seed packets to teachers who in turn passed them out to their students. The students then planted these flower seeds. The flowers attract dragonflies, which eat mosquitos.  This program was to knock down the mosquitos population to help fight against  dengue disease.  They were more worried about that than Zika.
