insideUPPER ARLINGTON Child’s Play
New inclusive playground projected for completion in July
By Hayley Ross Construction began in June on the Barrington Welcome Playground, the first Americans with Disabilities Act-accessible school playground in the Upper Arlington School District. Barrington Elementary School is home to children with disabilities in kindergarten through second grade from all areas of Upper Arlington. The current playground, built in 1989, does not accommodate the needs of all the students there. “Given the age and amount of money it would take to repair, we decided it would be better to replace the playground and add the ADA component,” says Aimee White, co-chairwoman of the playground committee at Barrington. White has been heading up the effort to construct the playground with the playground committee of the Barrington Parent Teacher Organization. White has two children in wheelchairs who have never played on a playground. “My reward will be getting to see my children get to play together on the playground with their siblings and the other children in the community,” says White. Playground equipment includes an AeroGlider, a sensory motion product that promotes inclusive play; slides; rubber matting; chair swings and sensory panels. A Cozy Cocoon, specifically designed for children with autism spectrum disorders, and eight climbers, two of which will be ADA-accessible, are also in the plans. “The AeroGlider and Cozy Cocoon will be game changers, allowing students of all ages and abilities to play together,” says Jason Fine, Barrington principal. Fine is also excited about the rubber matting, which will give children in wheelchairs access to the playground. The current playground surrounded by mulch does not allow wheelchair access. Local organizations have donated just under $200,000 to make the construction of the playground possible. Among the donors are the Barrington PTO and families, Upper Arlington community members, the Upper Arlington Rotary Foundation and Upper Arlington Community Foundation. Upper Arlington Rotary and the Upper Arlington Education Foundation made contributions of $5,000 each and the Upper Arlington Community Foundation donated $2,500. Northwest Kiwanis contributed $25,000. “Our focus at Northwest Kiwanis is helping the children of the world, and we couldn’t think of a better way of doing that 8
than funding this program,” says Lee Spitzer, the organization’s president. The playground committee reached its goal of $150,000 within two months. “I was floored by how fast we were able to reach our goal,” says Fine. Leadership UA, the Upper Arlington Fire Division, the city of Upper Arlington and Upper Arlington City Schools agreed to help build the playground in an effort to keep down installation costs. Construction began June 25 with the help of more than 150 volunteers. Local builders have also donated their time and resources for the project. Among them is Bill Anderson of Anderson Concrete, who has donated concrete for the playground, and the Daimler Group, which provided a project manager to oversee construction. Construction is projected to be complete by mid-July, and there will be a ribbon cutting ceremony when the students return in August. “We are incredibly excited, not only for our Barrington students, but also for the community of Upper Arlington,” says Fine. “We stress the importance of community at Barrington and feel that our new Welcome Playground will be another way to build relationships and foster friendships among our entire student body and the community at large.” Hayley Ross is a contributing writer.

News & Information from the Village of Marble Cliff
THE VILLAGE OF
Experiences Change Marble Cliff Visitors The Grandview Heights/Marble Cliff communities have long welcomed exchange students from abroad and encouraged high school students to experience the cultures of foreign countries. This year has been no exception. With their three children living in Chicago and London, Marble Cliff residents Marybeth Hamilton and husband Stuart Muir found they had the house space and time to be “parents” to young people wanting to experience life in a foreign country. “We contacted International Experience and were matched with not one, but two exchange students for the 20122013 school year,” Marybeth explains. “We have lived abroad and believe cross-cultural exchanges and experiences are beneficial for both the students and host families. Julia and Thomas wanted to experience an American high school and we have been happy to be a part of their time in the US.” Julia Tabaczynska, age 16, from Poznan, Poland, has been attending 11th grade at Columbus International High School, housed in the former North High School building. “My classmates are from Columbus and around the world. My best friends at school are from Palestine and Indonesia. Although I live far from the school, I try to spend time with my fellow students. I love to learn about their cultures and ways. I am taking Japanese, Chinese, English and Algebra II, among others. Most are easy, with less emphasis on book learning and more on experiences and sharing thoughts and ideas. In Poland, the curriculum is set with few opportunities to choose electives. I am VP of the Manga (Japanese drawing) Club because I have a great interest in the Orient,” says Julia, who has visited China. “My favorite class has been globalization, where we study and discuss world events in depth,” Julia says. “I will complete my senior year of high school in Poland and then attend college to learn www.trivillagemagazine.com
to direct movies. I have seen many good movies while in Columbus, and that has increased my interest in film direction.” Thomas Kring II, age 15, is from Regensburg, Germany. He has been taking biology, English, Algebra II and U.S. history. Like Julia, Thomas hasn’t found school in America difficult. “The student-teacher relationship at Grandview Heights High School is much different than in Germany. They have made learning fun by going beyond just required book learning. I was worried about being accepted by fellow students, but I’ve adapted and made wonderful friendships. In America, different grade levels socialize together and you have school teams, not just club teams grouped by grade.” Thomas has participated on the soccer, bowling and Ultimate Frisbee teams. “My friends ask me lots of questions about Germany and life at home. They’re surprised I can’t drive until I’m 18. Here, they can drive at 16, which gives them so much freedom. Experiencing high school in such nice, small communities as Grandview and Marble Cliff has been wonderful.” Upon his return to Germany, Thomas will finish his last two years of high school before beginning what he hopes will be a professional career in soccer or gymnastics. A back-up plan is to attend college and study sports anatomy. “I will have an advantage by living abroad and speaking English well,” Thomas says. Learning English well was a goal of both students. Their impressions of America? Julia says in Poland, most people live in high-rise buildings. Here, you live in houses. And there are so many fast-food restaurants. Her favorite is Panda Express; Thomas’s is Jimmy John’s. Julia says America is much more expensive than Poland. Its currency
(From left to right) Julia Tabaczynska, Marybeth Hamilton, Thomas Kring, Miranda Muir and Stuart Muir
is the zloty. Thomas feels the opposite; Germany is on the Euro. Both agree that Americans seem happy and smile. “There is no reason for Americans to be sad or mad,” Thomas says. Julia likes how she is frequently greeted with a smile: “That is not always the case in Poland.” Thomas summarized how they will describe the U.S. to friends back home – bigger, better and more of everything. Although having visited America before, both agree this last school year has given them the experiences they wanted. They are grateful to their hosts for including them in American family life, especially frequent trips to Chicago, a city they enjoy. Julia has missed her grandmother’s traditional Polish food, but both agree that Marybeth has been a good cook. As they prepare to return to their homelands and friends, Thomas and Julia are wondering what life will be like. How will their new confidence, ideas and experiences fit in with those of families and friends? “I am much more open and talk more about my thoughts. I even argue more,” says Julia. Thomas says that while he has changed a lot this year, his family hasn’t. “I am not the same person who left home. I wonder what will happen when the ‘new me’ gets home? I hope it will work.” 9
Grandview Heights company reaches customers around the world By Eric Lagatta
E-commerce payments company 2Checkout has its headquarters in Grandview Heights, but that doesn’t stop it from having a global influence. The online company serves about 10,000 active websites in the U.S., Europe, Asia and “all over the world,” says CEO Tom Dailey.
2Checkout CEO Tom Dailey
2Checkout was founded in 2000 by Alan Homewood as a way to provide an online checkout that is accessible to both the consumer and the merchant. “We provide the technology that provides the consumer checkout experience,” Dailey says. 2Checkout addresses its audience by offering language translation and currency conversion, allowing merchants to sell and consumers to buy on a global scale. Dailey, 49, joined the company in 2009 as president after serving as the executive head of Discover Card. With 25 years of experience in the payments industry under his belt, he became CEO in 2011. Since its founding 13 years ago, the company has become a multi-million dollar enterprise – doubling in size since Dailey joined. “The company has always been profitable and always has been growing,” he says. Dailey says 2Checkout is one of the top five leaders in global payments, along with its main competitor, PayPal. The goal is to continue growing. What has kept the company profitable has been its ability to keep up with an industry that has seen radical change, Dailey says. “We’re working right now on aggressive expansion plans,” he says. “As the payment industry has changed, we’ve adapted our products and services.” The company has a presence on social media sites Facebook, Google Plus, Twitter, YouTube and LinkedIn. It recently developed a smartphone app so merchants can manage their accounts when they’re away from the office. Dailey says the company has also developed its product to have features that appeal to both small and large merchants. For instance, smaller merchants may want an easier integration for their website, while larger merchants may want a direct interface so they have control over the checkout. 2Checkout has a solution for both.
News & Information from the City of Grandview Heights
Of course, the central goal is to stay competitive internationally. Along with its headquarters on Grandview Avenue, 2Checkout has offices in Europe and Asia to maintain a global presence. It has had an office in Ireland since 2012 and Hong Kong since 2011. “We want people in those markets and who live in those markets,” Dailey says. “We want to make sure we stay close to those markets, and the best way to do that is to have people there.” While 2Checkout gains a deeper understanding of the global market with these offices, Dailey sees an invaluable benefit to its Grandview Heights headquarters. Dailey, an Ohio native and a graduate of The Ohio State University, acknowledges the advantages of the headquarters’ central location within the U.S. and the quality technology schools in the area. “Our business at its core is a tech business,” he says. “We have a very productive and loyal labor pool (here).” Eric Lagatta is a contributing writer.

Comfort for Kenyans UA residents are big supporters of facility for AIDS orphans in Africa
Dr. Terry Davis didn’t give it a second thought after he advised an Anglican minister from Kenya about starting an organization to benefit orphans there many years ago. He put the conversation out of his mind until the Rev. Dr. John Mungai Nganga sent him some literature in 2004, describing the project he had undertaken and asking if Davis would like to lend a hand. Now, almost a decade later, Davis and his wife, Barbara, of Upper Arlington have made trip after trip to Kenya and played a major role in the further develDr. Terry Davis and his wife, Barbara opment and success of the Rafiki Children’s Center in Kikuyu Town, not far from Nairobi, KeTerry was a pediatric heart surgeon nya’s capital. for almost his entire career, and throughNganga founded the Marafiki Glob- out the course of it, he went on medical al AIDS Ministry Inc. in 1995, aiming missions to Africa as well as to Central to do something for the growing num- and South America.

He opened the center in 1998. “It has been John’s dream to create general tips on such topics as establishan orphanage to take care of some of ing 501c3 status and getting involved with Rotary International to be eligible these kids,” Terry says. “Rafiki” is a Swahili word for for grants. When Nganga contacted Terry in “friend” or “pal.” “Marafiki” means “many friends.” 2004 to let him know his project was Terry met Nganga through work at under way, Terry went to Kenya and Nationwide Children’s Hospital. Terry quickly recognized Rafiki as an opporwas chief of pediatric heart surgery; tunity to continue to do important work Nganga was a resident chaplain. for children in less fortunate countries. 12
Since then, he and Barbara have worked to raise money for the center and help it any way they can. Terry estimates he’s been to Kenya about 15 times, and Barbara 10. The center gets its funding from a variety of sources, but the majority of it – more than $270,000 – comes from central Ohio, most of that coming through the Davises’ church, First Community Church in Grandview Heights. Local Rotary clubs, including UA’s, also contribute. The quilting group at First Community, of which Barbara is a member, also helped out by making each child at Rafiki a quilt, complete with an embroidered name. www.trivillagemagazine.com

“Most of them have never had anything of their own, much less something that beautiful with their name embroidered on it,” Terry says. The center has continually evolved from its earliest days in a rented house. Its organizers bought land and built new facilities there. The installation of a well in 2005 made a huge difference, allowing for clean water and irrigation. The facility now has two 50-bed dormitories, a dining hall, a medical clinic (named for the Davises), a school, a farm, a shopping center, two fish ponds, a biogas facility and an athletic facility, and a technical school is being built now. “We have about 50 kids under roof, www.trivillagemagazine.com
(and) we have another 50 kids that we’re helping with school fees and uniforms,” Terry says. “The goal is to have 100 kids under roof and 500 kids that we’re helping.” The school, Rafiki Academy, just opened last year, and currently offers preschool and grades K-4; 110 students are enrolled. Bringing the educational component in-house was another major step forward for Rafiki, Terry says; not only was paying children’s fees at other schools expensive, those schools were also overcrowded and short on supplies. The new school caps class sizes at 25 students and has proven popular in the community; only about one-third of students live at Rafiki, while the others come

from town. The academy will soon offer up to eighth grade, and the center’s early work with children has already started to pay off; many who started there have graduated high school, and some of the earliest students have started careers. “The first girl out is now a lawyer,” Terry says. “(She) is working with a bank in town and wants to be an advocate for AIDS orphans.” The goal is to give these children who have lost their families the benefits of being part of one – food, shelter, educational, medical care and a sense of self-worth. “They go from street kids who just have no hope to solid human beings with a future ahead of them,” Terry says. And more than just children are benefiting from the center. The clinic, which is not limited to children, has the best laboratory in the region and is open all week. “We charge $1 for an adult visit, 50 cents for a kid visit,” Terry says. The center also employs local residents to harvest and to build, and has brought in dentists to offer free clinics to individuals who have not had proper dental care in many years. The Davises also founded the Dr. Terry and Barbara Davis Marafiki Golf Tournament, an annual event held in central Ohio that benefits the center. This year’s takes place July 13 at Foxfire Golf Club in Lockbourne. Though their work with Rafiki is important, Terry and Barbara find other ways to get involved in the community as well. Barbara, an author who published a book on quilting titled Sacred Threads, is a spiritual director at the church and spends a lot of time helping with its quilt ministry’s other endeavors. Terry no longer performs surgery at Nationwide Children’s, but he serves as associate chief medical officer and co-medical director for patient safety, is involved in the Cap Square Rotary, and plays washtub bass for local bluegrass outfit Grassinine. The couple has two grown sons and four grandchildren. Those interested in contributing to Rafiki can do so directly via its website, www.marafikikenyaorphans.org, or through First Community Church.

Volunteers spend time on Sunday cleaning up after approximately 25,000 attendees. Rides and games for children and adults are popular features of the festival, as are a casino, bingo and raffles. New this year, those who buy the Saturday Night Dinner will receive a free bingo card. There’s room for 400 dinner guests in the parish hall after 4 p.m. Mass. Additional food offerings this year are grilled chicken sandwiches, meatball subs and hot pretzels. Entertainment will include EKG from 5-7 p.m. and Conspiracy from 8-11 p.m. Friday, and the Columbus Zoo from 5-7 p.m. and Rascal Flatts tribute band Broken Road from 8-11 p.m. Saturday.
St. Andrew Parish Festival The event also promises hands-on fun, says Arts Manager Lynette Santoro-Au. Create spin art T-shirts, work with clay -those are just two of the 20 interactive activities planned for children and adults. One of the biggest projects planned? A paint-by-numbers snow plow from the city’s Public Service Department. “We’ve started to put art on our snow plows,” Santoro-Au says. Already, two plows were decked out with clings and unveiled at the Spring Fling a few months ago. They may also make an appearance at the Independence Day parade. But the paint-by-numbers plow at the Arts Festival allows everyone to have a hand in creating a unique motorized masterpiece.

UA Chamber celebrates two decades of local cuisine
Plan to let out at least one notch on your belt at the Taste of UA. Organizers from the Upper Arlington Area Chamber of Commerce are making this year’s event, 3:30-8:30 p.m. Aug. 8, bigger and better than ever. “Last year we had 30 to 40 food vendors, and my goal is to have more than that this year,” says Administrative Events Coordinator Teresa Conway. The Chamber expects upwards of 130 total vendors. In addition, the chamber has a temporary permit to allow alcohol in a designated area within Northam Park, 2070 Northam Rd. Last year, a beer garden was set up offsite at St. Agatha Catholic Church. This year, a tented tasting room called the Ohio Craft Bier Garten will be on site sponsored by the Daily Growler. The entertainment stage, with an entertainment lineup set by Vaughan Music Studios, will be close to the festival’s entrance. Conway expects the Buckeye Mobile Tour, which brings Ohio State-themed games and inflatables, will generate a lot of excitement as well. “Brutus will be there and the Buckeye cheerleaders,” she says. “John Cooper will also be there signing autographs, so we’ll have a strong Ohio State presence.” Vendor judging will take place at 5:30 p.m., with a celebrity-packed crew of judges awarding first, second and third place honors to the best appetizers, entrées and desserts. Tina Elsea, co-owner of perennial Taste of UA favorite Caffé DaVinci, has been part of the event since its start -- originally with her family’s DaVinci Ristorante. 18
“It was always a big gathering of friends and community people, … something we always looked forward to,” says Elsea, adding that the Taste has grown immensely in the last 20 years. It was instrumental in helping launch Caffé DaVinci, which she and her husband, Kim, started in 2006. The couple brought their Tutti Frutti gelato, a mixed berry flavor, to the event before the new restaurant had even opened -- and won a first place ribbon. “We had to get a special license to participate,” Elsea says. “We were starting to introduce gelato, and we brought it to the Taste of UA. It was awesome. People loved it.” Elsea and the Caffé DaVinci crew have a surprise up their sleeves for this year’s event
Chocolates to live by.™
TH Aug. 8
-- a new dish Elsea worked on this spring with her cousin who visited from Italy. “The Upper Arlington community is amazing,” Elsea says. “They become your family. It’s a lot of fun.” Conway agrees that the people are part of what make the Taste of UA such a hit year after year. “Come out for the food, for the music and for the community,” Conway says. “It’s such a wonderful event.” Admission to the Taste of UA is free; vendors set their own prices for sample-sized goodies.

Real Estate Rebound Tri-Village housing market bounces back after economic recession A house is only as strong as its foundation – likewise the housing market. It’s an axiom that’s valid in the Tri-Village area, where the aging housing inventory has sustained with quality, strength, value and desirability throughout the years. As in most other areas of the country, the real estate bubble that burst about six years ago was felt, but in Grandview Heights, Marble Cliff and Upper Arlington, the bottom didn’t drop out quite as far as it did elsewhere. And as of this spring, prices are normal, sales are going nicely and the number of homes on the market is increasing, three veteran Realtors say. “Real estate market trends for 2013 are positive. All the important indicators in the UA area are up: home sales are up 18 percent, average sales price is up 9.8 percent and the percent of the list price received is up 5 percent,” says Kelly Cantwell, a long-time Upper Arlington resident and agent with Street Sotheby’s International Realty. Agent Barbara Lach with Coldwell Banker King Thompson has lived in Grandview Heights and Upper Arlington – both older and newer sections of the city – and sold real estate throughout the area for 33 years. “What’s going on is kind of pent-up energy” being released after the presidential election cycle, among other www.trivillagemagazine.com
Stu and Jane Jones have lived in their home on Edgemont Road for more than 50 years. Jane’s father purchased the house for $26,500.
things, kept people from moving, Lach says. The market is on the upswing. “We fare better (here) than other areas,” she says. “We were not hit as hard.” There was an up-tick in foreclosures for a period of time, but those are down now, too. There were not many homeowners underwater, Lach says. It was no-moneydown deals that depleted the value of overpriced homes and gave owners a financial bath. “People who couldn’t afford (those homes) shouldn’t have had them,” she says. Today, homes in the $250,000 to $500,000 range are selling well. “There will always be a market (in that range). … Anything above $500,000 is a whole new ballgame,” Lach says. There’s not as much traffic in that price range. She predicts that inflated prices won’t happen again as they did in the mid-2000s.
Lach recently visited Washington, D.C. with national Realtors to discuss their concerns with members of Congress. If Congress ever does anything about rewriting the massive federal tax code, Realtors are concerned about the potential removal of mortgage interest as a tax deduction. “If they do that, it would make a lot of difference” as buyers weigh real estate investments, Lach says. Jane Jones, in the real estate business with HER Realtors in the Tri-Village area for 17 years, says the current market is good for both sellers and buyers because of affordable prices. The mortgage market was tight for a while, but it has loosened some and appraisals are 25
A large addition and the construction of a pool in the Jones’ back yard, along with appreciation, have increased their home’s value to about $500,000.
going well, which is key to getting a mortgage. During the boom, “a lot of homes were priced high and people were paying for them,” she says. The condition of homes varies. Lach finds that most owners are updating their homes with various amenities, such as new kitchens. Although there’s little new housing in the Tri-Village area, many buyers expect homes to be in move-in condition. “If you wish to sell your home, you have to do something with it,” Lach says. That includes the basics, such as getting rid of clutter. She tells would-be sellers to pack away as much as possible. “You’re not selling your stuff,” she says.
Other steps might involve a fresh coat of paint throughout the interior. Some buyers are willing to take those steps themselves. “A lot of homes on the market need upgrades,” Jones says. When it comes to pricing, Lach advises her clients to consider the market, not just how much they’re hoping to get out of the house. “If you want to sell your home, you have to price it right,” she says. “Otherwise, it’s going to sit there.” Some owners want to set a high price, and Jones suggests trying that for a short time. If there’s no interest, it’s time to reduce it to get a quicker sale. “People think they can list at any price, then people can make an offer. People don’t always think that way,” Jones explains.

2701 Zollinger Road, Upper Arlington 614-486-5201 www.rumcua.org This Upper Arlington home was constructed in the last few years. The owners razed the previous house on the property and built their new abode from the foundation up.
All three Realtors are bullish on the TriVillage market. Lach cites strong leadership and strong schools as two big pulls for the area. The location also draws many Ohio State University staff and faculty members. “People love Grandview. It’s a small community. It has the Grandview Avenue shops. It’s very desirable for young couples,” Jones says. Some people buy older homes for the location, raze them and build upgraded houses. Others choose to build additions or renovate the interiors. Jones and husband Stu have lived in the same home on Edgemont Road for more than 50 years. Her father bought the four-bedroom home for $26,500, a high price at the time, and rented it to the newlyweds until they bought it. The Joneses expanded the home some with a family room, larger kitchen and master bedroom as they raised four children. Its market value today is $500,000 to $600,000, Jones says. It’s just another indicator of the strength and stability of Tri-Village real estate. Those thinking of listing their home should be encouraged, adds Cantwell. “Our listing inventory is low when compared to demand. It’s becoming a common occurrence for properly prepared and priced homes to see multiple offers.” Duane St. Clair is a contributing editor.
