CAC zoning chair

Simbro: ‘Clintonville has an identity crisis’ By KEVIN PARKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

At the end of the October meeting of the Clintonville Area Commission, zoning committee chairwoman Sandy Simbro announced that she had heard enough of the bickering that had been going on among members of the advisory panel. She’s heard a good deal more, since.

And if Simbro, who has been involved with the area commission in one form or another for four decades, has a wish for the New Year, it would be an answer to the question she posed back in October: “Where’s the civility?” Last week, Simbro said that in her experience the accusations and in-fighting that went on between commission mem-

bers last year is unprecedented. “I don’t ever remember it being so public,” She said. “There have always been personality differences. Three have always been differences of opinion, but I don’t ever remember it being so public and mean-spirited. Sticks and stones can break your bones, but words will never harm you, but once a word is spoken, you can’t take it back. Once the dam-

age is done, the damage is done, and I think a lot of damage has been done.” None of the unpleasantness about community representation on various CAC committees or the reversal in late October of an earlier position supporting a turn lane at East North Broadway and North High Street has served the community well, in the view of the zoning committee chairwoman.

“Clintonville has an identity crisis,” Simbro said. “Clintonville needs to be a team player and acknowledge and recognize they are part of the city of Columbus. They need to learn to get along. At the same time, their responsibility is to represent the community and to always act in the best interests of the communiSee SIMBRO:, page A2

CAC election panel works to complete rules By KEVIN PARKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

A mail-in ballot procedure being put forward by members of the Clintonville Area Commission’s election committee became the focus of some controversy last week. It was also the one thing that committee members felt they didn’t need to discuss further when the panel met in the Whetstone Branch of the Columbus Metropolitan Library. Instead, chairwoman Mary Rodgers convened her committee again to go over everything else pertaining to the area commission’s election rules. Still, e-mail chatter and a few people on hand for the session did not want to go over details pertaining to the proposal to allow shut-ins and others unable to get to the polling places on election day, or days as was being considered, to use the U.S. Postal Service to cast their votes in the upcoming CAC election. “Certainly perfection just doesn’t exist,” Rodgers told one resident who attempted to steer discussion of last week’s meeting to the mail-in concept at the outset. Rodgers appeared before the

area commission members at the December meeting in order to sound them out about the proposal for having mail-in balloting essentially replace absentee voting, which became the source of some dismay because employees at the library branch, who handled the requests for people unable to vote in person the day of the election, photocopied driver’s licenses and other personal identification information for verification purposes. Subsequently, some community members expressed grave concern that these documents would be considered public property and open those who participated in the election by absentee ballot up to possible identity theft. However, Rodgers was told the CAC’s December meeting was too full to take up the mail-in concept, and instead it would be re-

He didn’t mean it in a good way. “In some ways, I think the spring and summer for us were a preview of trends that later affected the public discourse at state and national levels,” McLaughlin continued. “In past years, the CAC has worked hard, and effectively, in building consensus among the districts of Clintonville to achieve enhancements for the area as a whole. “This year, I have seen a movement away from that area-wide focus.

What started out as two archeologists scrambling to fill a void has burgeoned into a 45-employee Northland-based company with offices in four states offering services dealing with ancient history as well as completely modern issues and problems. What is today the ASC Group Inc. Cultural and Environmental Consultants, with headquarters on Freeway Drive North, was founded by business partners and Clintonville residents Shaune M. Skinner and Elsie Immel-Blei on April 1, 1986, as simply Archeological Services Consultants. “ASC Group Inc. is a certified, womenowned cultural and environmental resources management company,” according to its website. The cultural part provided the underpinnings for the enterprise when the Ohio Historical Society, as a result of a potential conflict of interest, was forced to drop archeological surveys as a service offered. Skinner and Immel-Blei, archeologists for the society, faced losing their jobs so, with the blessing of the director, started their own firm to provide the surveys, which are required by federal regulations for many types of development and land use. It was a propitious time to get into the field, so to speak, according to Skinner, now president of the company; business partner Immel-Blei is more involved in the financial end of things.

In about 1986, Skinner said, the federal Office of Surface Mining had just been sued for failing to comply with a requirement to conduct archeological surveys before mining operations started. As a result, coal companies were lined up waiting for a whole backlog of these surveys to be conducted. For the first two years of the company’s existence, all Skinner and Immel-Blei did was surveys for mining companies, to permit operations to begin where nothing or archeological significance was found or

halted where there was. “All we needed were shovels,” Skinner recalled “Back then, people wrote reports on typewriters. We didn’t have to go out and buy a building. We didn’t have to buy a lot of expensive equipment.” With the expansion of services over the years since, ASC Group Inc. has had to buy a building, lots of expensive equipment and has expanded to have offices in not only See FIRM OFFERS, page A2

find they have more in common than they realize.” People seeking to work together for the betterment of the community need to have a level of trust in one another, in Simbro’s opinion. She pointed to the ongoing efforts of the CAC’s election committee to devise ways of making for a more secure election process and preventing any type of fraud from being perpetrated. “Hey, we’re not electing the president of the United States here,” Simbro pointed out. “Whatever happened to trust? If I can’t trust my neighbor, how can I trust the person on the next block?”

If commission members were to begin exhibiting trust in one another, Simbro feels that might serve to carry on over into the community at large. Finally, the zoning panel head pointed out that Clintonville is actually made up of 88 or so separate subdivisions that are viewed as a single neighborhood, but that’s not being reflected right now in the way CAC members are treating each other. “Clintonville does not now nor has it ever existed,” Simbro said. “It’s a state of mind and a sense of place.” kparks@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekNews.com

Although archeological investigations remain a mainstay of ASC Group’s business, operations have expanded to embrace architectural history as well as ecological and environmental services. The latter aspects, added in the early 1990s, provided the impe-

tus for changing the company’s name, Immel-Blei said. It also involved bringing on board professionals with very different qualifications and areas of expertise, which made the two founders just a bit nervous, Skinner admitted. For that to work, she added, it was necessary to find the right people to employ. “Which we have,” Immel-Blei said. “We’re lucky.” The two women pride themselves on the fact the cultural as-

CAC members look back at 2010, ahead to 2011 Continued from page A1 ternal forces, even those that are relatively close to home. Accordingly, the May CAC elections were dominated by discussion of issues at the local and even block level, and by a sense of anxiety about unknown factors affecting those issues. “Obvious examples included suspicions about city safety measures at North High and North Broadway intersection, shadowy rumors of a renewed push for a Morse-Bethel connector and threats, lately realized, of a frivolous law suit against the city by residents of one block trying to re-litigate a settled property dispute. “The net result was an unprecedented sense of ‘prickliness’ and mutual distrust among different neighborhoods. This was reflected in May by a big change in the make-up of CAC, very similar to the partisan shift of national and state offices in November.” “First, on the downside, (police precinct) ‘redistricting’ has left the Clintonville residents with a feeling of insecurity and uncertainty,” wrote Dave Southan of District 6. “Second, the reassignment of community liaison officer Chris Riley to an area Dave outside of the Clintonville com- Southan munity has been a loss because of the excellent working relationship between him and the Commission. And third, dissension was rampant in the community over the proposed installation of a left turn lane on East North Broadway-High Street. “On the upside, the disappearance of the Clintonville Electric, the historic theater next to it and the office building at Henderson/High improved the appearance of the neighborhood. Discovery Park, in front of Clintonville Elementary School, finally has been cleaned up. The installation of a new sidewalk and fence at Overbrook/High has been completed in addition to a new sidewalk near Studio 35. The repaving of DeSantis Drive and also the upgrading done on Indianola from Morse Road to Lincoln Drive has greatly improved the northern part of our community.” “As I reflect on this year, I am grateful for the trust placed in me as commissioner of District 3,” representative James R. Blazer II wrote. “I have met many wonderful people and am hon- James R. ored that I was chosen to help Blazer II solve issues that are important to Clintonville.” “I have experienced awe and wonder over the past year as a new commissioner at the depth and magnitude of community involvement in Clintonville, and in realizing the enormous amount of time being spent by so many smart, passionate and en- Jennifer ergetic Clintonville citizens in Kangas countless ways that serve and strengthen our community,” Jennifer Kangas of District 6 offered. “In 2010 we increased our numbers and involvement of the many neighborhood and civic associations and task forces and committees that work on solving problems and increasing our quality of life in Clintonville. Clintonville residents were major contributors to efforts benefiting environmental conservation, and our Clintonville Farmers Market raised awareness and appreciation of local food and served as a popular community gathering place. Our ClintonvilleBeechwold Community Resources Center con-

tinued to serve as a beacon of light drawing attention to and attending to the increasing needs of many seniors and families.” “In the spring, residents expressed happiness with the city’s announcement of their decision to move forward with the improvements to the intersection of North High and North Broadway,” wrote Sarah Snyder, District 2 representative. “The projSarah ect is needed to address nuSnyder merous safety and traffic problems at and around the intersection that stem from the current design. The planned improvements were approved by the CAC in August of 2009. During 2010, the city did move forward with the design phase of that project and a presentation was given to the community at a special meeting on Oct. 26. “However, at that meeting, the surprise action by some members of the commission to reject the city presentation was met with shock and disappointment in the community. “The city has asked to hear from Clintonville residents on this issue and I urge the residents of Clintonville to contact the mayor’s office and the members of city council and ask them to move forward with the project.” “Wonderful events and traditions are in store for 2011: Holiday Tree Lighting in December; roses in the late spring; Fourth of July fireworks and Cruises of the Ville in the summer; home tours, a Farmer’s Market, fundraisers with Mozart and pastries in the fall,” DeFourny concluded. “It seems certain that 2011 will continue the perennial Clintonville dynamics around responsible development and density and parking, which, although sometimes painful, are indicative of a community that is healthy and growing in a positive direction,” according to Kangas. “The outpouring of volunteerism, compassion, articulate thoughts and words, generosity of money and spirit, and community action that characterize Clintonville will serve us well in 2011, whatever the challenges.” “Looking forward, these growing pains are likely to continue as long as the commission reflects, rather than resolves, the nascent divisions in our community,” McLaughlin wrote. “More broadly, I do not anticipate a return very soon to discussions of how to enhance Clintonville as a whole, or of its role in building a better city. “On the bright side, this change may bring new emphasis to a somewhat overlooked dimension of CAC’s mission. Aside from our familiar role as public policy interlocutor between neighborhoods and city government, we are in a position to facilitate and inspire private volunteer efforts.” “Looking forward to 2011, the intersection will continue to be a focal point as other improvements will be coming to the area around the intersection,” Snyder wrote. “The renovation of Clinton Elementary is set to begin in the spring and, in December, plans were approved for the renovation of the Kroger store at the northwest corner. Change also brings opportunity, and the renovation plans for Kroger will implement many of the recommendations of the Clintonville Neighborhood Plan, including bike racks, crosswalk treatments and streescaping elements along High Street. “2010 was a busy year, when many promising projects got their start. My hope is that the seeds, both literal and figurative, that were planted in 2010 will grow and prove fruitful in 2011.” “I’m looking forward to the challenges of 2011,” Southan offered. kparks@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekNews.com

CAC election panel works to complete rules Continued from page A1 viewed at the January meeting, set for this evening at 7 in the meeting room of the Whetstone Branch. Therefore, Rodgers said that the Dec. 29 meeting was to be devoted to tweaking the remaining existing election rules, rather than dealing with questions about the mail-in procedure before hearing from commission members. As the five members of the committee worked their way through rules for conducting an election that, in the past, has drawn at most around 400 voters, they focused primarily on finding ways to open up voting to all who are eligible to do so. This included permitting in-person voting on not just one day, as had been the procedure in the past but instead on at least two additional days. Committee members decided, emphatically, to completely eliminate the existing absentee procedure and its controversial photocopying of personal information. “I don’t think we want this no matter what,” Rodgers said. Multiple in-person voting days should serve to replace that system, committee member Justin Goodwin said. Rodgers raised the question of whether or not the votes of those who cast in-person ballots on the added days should be counted

separately from the ones the day of the actual election. “I don’t see a compelling reason why they should be segregated,” Goodwin said. As for separately counting any mail-in votes, should CAC members approve some form of that method, Rodgers suggested that might be the case. “We’re waiting for some advice from them,” she added. Although he was unable to attend last week’s committee meeting, CAC District 1 representative Mike McLaughlin did weigh in via e-mail. It dealt with mailin balloting. “There should be at least two

election committee members processing the ballot request form,” he wrote. “Having one person processing these requests could lead to a tainted election by either not sending ballots to those who requested one or by sending ballots to those who didn’t request one.” When a resident voiced a similar concern that Rodgers, who has said she will be responsible for mailing out ballots to those who request them, could be accused of improprieties, Rodgers replied: “I’m a big girl.” kparks@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekNews.com

2010: The Year In Review

Off-field tragedy, upsets among top stories From staff reports As we begin 2011, we take a look back at the highs and lows of central Ohio high school sports for 2010. There was tragic news off the field, as Rico Butler, who helped the Hilliard Davidson football team win the Division I state championship in 2009, drowned in a quarry. There were stunning upsets, including the Northland boys basketball team, which lost to Gahanna 71-45 in a Division I regional final despite being ranked No. 1 in the country and the defending state champion. And there was triumph on the football field, as two members of the CCL, Hartley and Watterson, captured state championships. Here’s how the year stacked up through the eyes of the sports staff at ThisWeek Community Newspapers. We hope you enjoy the look back at 2010 as much as we did. TWICE AS NICE: The CCL has only five teams in football but produced two state champions in Hartley and Watterson. Hartley, led by running back Noah Key, defeated Chagrin Falls 34-13 in the Division IV state final on Dec. 3 at Massillon’s Paul Brown Tiger Stadium to finish 13-2 and capture its first state championship since 1986. Watterson overcame six turnovers to beat Akron Buchtel 13-12 in the Division III state final on Dec. 4 at Paul Brown Tiger Stadium to finish 13-1 and win its first state title since 2002. Key, the Division IV Player of the Year who rushed for 2,755 yards (8.8 yards per carry) and 40 touchdowns, rushed for 130 yards and two touchdowns on 24 carries against Chagrin Falls, which finished 13-2. Omar Lane also had a big game, rushing for 117 yards and a touchdown on six carries. The Hawks went 5-for-5 on fourth down, recovered an onside kick and held Chagrin Falls to 159 total yards. “I don’t know if there were a ton of people who picked us to win the game,” Hawks coach Brad Burchfield said. “We taped all the pundits saying that Chagrin Falls is going to win the game and played it for the kids (the night before the state final). We’re happy to take that underdog role.” Watterson, which won its final 10 games, held Buchtel to 204 total yards but was not able to pull away from the Griffins because of turnovers. The Eagles, who had 258 yards, lost three fumbles and threw three interceptions, including one that was returned 80 yards for a touchdown. With Watterson trailing 12-6, Ray Cook scored on a 3-yard run and Tim Carter kicked the extra point to put the Eagles ahead with 10 minutes, 50 seconds left. On their ensuing possession, the Griffins drove from their own 23-yard line to the Watterson 6, only to be stopped on fourth-and-1. Buchtel, which finished 114, got the ball back three plays later on the Watterson 21 as the result of an Eagles fumble. However, on second-and-15 from the

No. 1: Watterson’s T.J. GIlles (left), Matt Redfield (39), Patrick Rhomberg (4), Brad McCurdy (11), Ray Cook (35) and the rest of the Eagles celebrate after a 13-12 victory over Akron Buchtel in the Division III state championship game Dec. 4 at Paul Brown Tiger Stadium in Massillon. Fellow CCL member Hartley also won a state title, beating Chagrin Falls 34-13 in the Division IV final.

Eagles’ 26, Jared Simpson sacked Griffins quarterback Stephen Parker for a loss of 12 yards and Brad McCurdy intercepted Parker on the next play to help seal the victory. “These guys know as well as I do how great of an accomplishment this season was,” Eagles coach Dan Bjelac said. “There were a number of behind-the-scenes things that happened. This team found ways to get it done all year.” Linebacker Matt Redfield was the state’s co-Defensive Player of the Year and district Defensive Player of the Year. STUNNING UPSETS: The Northland boys basketball team and Gahanna boys soccer team both were ranked No. 1 in the country for much of their respective seasons, but neither was able to defend their respective state championships, or even return to the state tournament. Northland lost to Gahanna 7145 in a regional final on March 20 at the Fairgrounds Coliseum. The loss snapped a 37-game winning streak for the Vikings, who finished 23-1. Gahanna’s four-guard offense helped it shoot 23-for-38 from the floor, with Stevie Taylor and Rob Brandenberg (19 points apiece) leading the way. The Lions advanced to state for the first time, where they lost to eventual champion Massillon Jackson 62-50 in a semifinal on March 26 to finish 26-1. “As time goes on, people will remember our Northland game more than playing in front of 15,000 people at the Schott,” said Lions coach Tony Staib,

No. 4: Jared Sullinger had another big season for the Northland boys basketball team, garnering Ohio’s Mr. Basketball award for the second consecutive season along with earning McDonald’s All-American and Naismith National Player of the Year honors. It was a bittersweet season, however, as Sullinger’s Vikings, the defending state champions and top-ranked team in the country, were stunned by Gahanna 71-45 in a regional final. The Lions’ upset victory, coupled with the Olentangy Orange boys soccer team’s shocking 1-0 win over defending state champion Gahanna in a regional final, was voted the No. 2 story of the year.

whose team was ranked second in the final state poll behind Northland. “It was a team everybody said that couldn’t be beat. The way we beat them, it was one of those magical games that

puts an exclamation point on the season for these guys.” Jared Sullinger, now playing for Ohio State, had 24 points and 15 rebounds to lead the Vikings, who lost despite out-

rebounding Gahanna 36-18. Northland, which had beaten Cincinnati Princeton 60-58 in the 2009 state final, spent several weeks as the No. 1-ranked team in the country, according to most national polls. Among the Vikings’victories were a 5352 win over Henderson (Nev.) Findlay Prep on Dec. 17, 2009, and a 47-46 win over Mouth of Wilson (Va.) Oak Hill Academy on Jan. 16. Both of those games were televised on ESPN. Ranked first for most of the season in the ESPN/Rise poll, the Gahanna boys soccer team lost to Olentangy Orange 2-1 in double overtime in a Division I regional final on Nov. 6, marking its only loss in its last 44 games. The Lions had beaten Orange 3-0 on Sept. 9 and had outscored their opponents 96-9. The Pioneers lost to Centerville 2-1 in a state semifinal on Nov. 9. Gahanna finished 19-1-1, with its only other blemish being a 1-all tie against Massillon Jackson on Oct. 2. Orange’s Colton Bloecher scored the winning goal against the Lions with 4:24 left in the second overtime. “It’s shocking,” said Gahanna senior forward Chris Davis, who scored with 3 seconds left in the first half to give the Lions a 1-0 halftime lead. “We were so determined to win. It’s devastating. I didn’t expect this at all. I thought we were going to win and go to the state semis.” OV E R C O M I N G TRAGEDY: The Hilliard Davidson football team fell short in its quest to repeat as Division I state champi-

on, finishing 13-1 after losing to Huber Heights Wayne 28-14 in a state semifinal on Nov. 27. Still, it was another successful season for the Wildcats, especially when taking into consideration that the Davidson football family was dealt a major blow when running back Rico Butler drowned May 25 while swimming with friends in a quarry. Butler would have been a senior this year. “I think everyone would have taken a 13-1 season,” said coach Brian White, whose team won its 11th OCC championship by finishing 7-0 in the OCC-Central Division. “Coming into this year, we weren’t exactly sure how everything was going to pan out and what the kids’ reaction to losing Rico was going to be. There were a multitude of questions about things coming into this year.” The Wildcats dedicated their season to Butler by wearing a sticker with the No. 5 — Butler’s jersey number — on their helmets. “They certainly didn’t forget about Rico all year long,” White said. “They kept him in the back of their minds all year long, but fortunately it was kind of in the back of their minds. They used it as just enough motivation to get themselves prepared to play, but at the same time, Mr. Butler (Rico’s dad, Rico Sr.) even said back last spring when Rico’s accident happened that he didn’t want the kids going out and playing this year for Rico. He wanted them to play for themSee 2010, page B2

Commentary

Football needs additional signing dates for recruits On Feb. 2, a few dozen high school football players from central Ohio will be among the thousands nationally who officially make their college decisions known. For many, signing a letter of intent will be nothing more than a formality to complete what has been known for months, and sometimes even years. Accepting a scholarship offer can seem like a no-brainer for some players such as Westerville Central senior tight end Nick Vannett, one of the country’s best at his position who said last July that playing for Ohio State would be “truly a dream come true.” Most, of course, don’t have it that easy. In the high-stakes world of prep recruiting, athletes are getting scholar-

ship offers at younger ages than ever before. When you’re a school from a BCS conference such as the Big Ten, having an early plan for how you’ll fill out your JARROD 2011 recruiting class ULREY — and for that matter, those in 2012 and 2013 — is just good business strategy. This trend hasn’t been without its obstacles for college football programs, which often are left in limbo until the official signing day or later waiting for athletes to make up their minds. In late October, Dublin Coffman senior quarterback Cole Stoudt verbally

committed to Wyoming, only to announce 10 days later that he would sign with Clemson. Pickerington North senior tight end Darien Bryant, after being wooed for months by schools that included Hawaii, North Carolina and West Virginia, verbally committed to Nebraska on Dec. 16. Less than 48 hours later, Bryant backed out of the commitment. The stories of Bryant and Stoudt are similar to dozens of others throughout the nation, as teenagers attempt to make decisions that will affect their lives for years to come. Could there be a way to make these decisions easier? Having more options would help. That’s what college basketball permits. Players are able to sign with their

respective programs in November or in April if they’re still undecided. Why not add a football signing period in early August for those whose decision is firm? This would allow recruiters to focus on the remaining athletes throughout their senior seasons. Think that’s too early? Players could be allowed to sign in October, which would encourage those considering enrolling in January to finalize their decision. Another option would be to allow players to sign in mid-December so it would not conflict with the playoffs in most states. One reason for there being no early signing period in college football is coaching turnover, but this would be eliminated if a player could be freed

of his commitment if the school changes coaches. The benefits of signing earlier would be numerous. For recruits, it undoubtedly would provide a sense of relief that should help them relax and enjoy more of their final year of high school. An earlier signing period also could help instill values that sometimes get lost on the recruiting trail, such as the ability to make — and keep – a commitment. In a world where loyalty often takes a backseat, those who are about to make the transition to adulthood need all the guidance they can get. julrey@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com

2010: THE YEAR IN REVIEW Continued from page B1 selves and they did a little bit of a combination of both, and it worked out well for them.” The Wildcats also experienced tragedy during the 2009 season when 16-year-old Arthur Lane was struck by a train and killed on the eve of the team’s 16-15 win over Cleveland Glenville in the state final. NATIONAL RECOGNITION ON HARDWOOD: Not only was Jared Sullinger of the Northland boys basketball team named Ohio’s Mr. Basketball for the second consecutive season after averaging 23.1 points, 11.7 rebounds and 1.6 blocks, he was named Naismith Player of the Year, an honor bestowed on the top player in the nation. Sullinger, a 6-foot-9 forward now starting for Ohio State as a freshman, also was named McDonald’s All-American, Jordan Brand All-American and Parade magazine Player of the Year. He finished as Northland’s all-time leading scorer with 1,972 career points. Sullinger was named MVP of the McDonald’s All-American game on March 31 at Ohio State, despite having to go to a hospital the morning of the game for what was thought to be food poisoning. He scored 22 points and had seven rebounds in the East all-star team’s 107-104 loss to the West. Sullinger also participated in the Jordan Brand Classic on April 17 at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Satch Sullinger, Jared’s father and Northland’s coach, was named Naismith Coach of the Year. SPECIAL DELIVERY: St. Charles golf coach Anthony Mampieri almost missed the crowning moment of his team’s season. On the morning of the second day of the Cardinals’ dominating performance at the Division I state tournament, his wife, Leeanne, went into labor with the couple’s third child. Cristiano Matthew Mampieri was born about four hours before the Cardinals teed off on Oct. 23, allowing Mampieri an opportunity to meet his team at Ohio State’s Scarlet Course before the start of the second round. “He got there and gave them a pep talk before they were to tee off and then went back to the hospital for a while,” assistant coach Eric Horvath said. “He told me he had a favor to ask of me, and then takes off early.” “Eric said that he felt like he was the Dennis Hopper character from the movie ‘Hoosiers.’ You know when Gene Hackman gets kicked out of the (basketball) game and hands (Hopper’s character) the scorebook and tells him he’s the coach now,” Mampieri said with a wide grin. “It wasn’t anything like that, but (Eric) did a great job.” When Mampieri returned to

The Cardinals shot a record 610, breaking the previous mark of 611 set by Cleveland St. Ignatius in 2002 and Upper Arlington in 1993, and finished well ahead of runner-up St. Ignatius (621). Senior Michael Ricaurte was tournament medalist with a 144 over 36 holes. Mampieri resigned as coach after the state tournament, saying he wanted to spend more time with his family. RIGHT ON TRACK: The Reynoldsburg girls track and field team defied the odds by winning a second consecutive Division I state championship. Despite the fact that their participation dropped by more than 50 percent from the 2009 season, the Raiders scored 56 points at the state meet that concluded June 5 at Ohio State to finish well ahead of runner-up Rocky River Magnificat (35). After losing a large senior class and having two key expected returnees transfer, Reynoldsburg had fewer than a dozen athletes competing by season’s end. Yet, led by sophomore Destinee Gause, the Raiders were able to defend their state title. Gause was disqualified at state in the 100 meters preliminaries because of a false start, but she won her second consecutive 200 title (24.07 seconds) and led the 400 relay (47.24) and 1,600 relay (3:48.87) to titles. “You lose some and you win some,” said sophomore sprinter/hurdler Faith Washington, who was second at state in the 300 hurdles (43.28), fourth in the 100 hurdles (14.7) and ran on the runner-up 800 relay (1:40.4) and the 1,600 relay. “This year we gained some mature young freshmen, so losing what we did (from the 2009 season) didn’t really matter as much.” The Hartley girls team narrowly missed winning its second consecutive Division II state title, as it scored 71 points to place second behind Cleveland Collinwood (77) and ahead of

third-place Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy (57). Collinwood had competed in Division I in 2009. That season, the Hawks shared the state title with Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy, as both teams scored 55 points. “I can’t take anything away from Collinwood. They put up the points,” coach Richard Jones said. “If we can put up almost 80 points and a team beats us, then they deserve to win.” Though the team championship eluded Hartley, the Hawks won individual titles and broke a meet record in the 1,600 relay. Senior Chesna Sykes won the 100 (11.97) and 200 (24.22) and was on the winning 400 relay (47.37) with CharAnna Dixon, Chelsea Scott and Jordyn Smith. Sykes also was on the secondplace 800 relay (1:41.1) with Aisha Cavin, Dixon and Maya Pedersen. The 1,600 relay of Taisha Ferguson, Cavin, Pedersen and Scott finished first in 3:49.94, breaking the previous meet record of 3:50.08 set by Warrensville Heights in 2009. QUITE A SPLASH: The Upper Arlington girls swimming and diving team won its sixth consecutive Division I state title, scoring 295 points to finish ahead of runner-up Watterson (186) in February at the C.T. Branin Natatorium in Canton. The Golden Bears won only one event, the 200-yard medley relay, but had swimmers finish in the top eight in every event. Kristyn Fulcher, Nicole Wagner, Katie VanFossen and Lauren Comer teamed to win the 200 medley relay in 1 minute, 46.23 seconds, edging runner-up Centerville (1:46.67). Abby Chin placed second in four events: the 500 freestyle (4:53.6), 200 free (1:51.24), 200 free relay (1:35.97) and 400 free relay (3:29.67). Watterson’s Gracie Finnegan, capped a dominant career by winning four more state titles to finish with eight for her career. She defended her titles in the 50 free (23.2) and 100 free (50.06) and

anchored the Eagles’ 200 free relay (1:35.08) and 400 free relay (3:27.09) to first-place finishes. Also on the relays were Camey Rabold, Michele Rielly and Samantha Schuttinger. “(Defending my state titles) definitely added pressure, but I came in knowing it’s my senior year,” Finnegan said. “I kind of wanted to go out with a bang and break some records. But I had great competition and I had a great time. It was real fun.” THREE-PEAT: The Lakewood softball team won its third consecutive state championship, defeating Poland Seminary 1-0 in the Division II state final on June 4. Third baseman Kelsi Thompson led the Lancers’offense, producing two of their five hits, including a solo home run in the second inning. Pitcher Alyssa Patznick went seven innings, allowing six hits and one walk and striking out four. Lakewood finished 29-5. The Lancers’ other two titles came in Division III, as they beat Youngstown Ursuline 5-0 in 2009 and defeated Wellington 5-3 in 2008. Grove City reached the state final in Division I, losing to Massillon Perry 10-0 on June 5 to finish 28-5.

Ohio State. Worthington Kilbourne senior Kevin Metka defeated Liberty Township Lakota East’s Zack Mueck 7-6 (11-9), 6-3 in the Division I singles final, marking his second state title. Metka was part of the Division I doubles championship team in 2009. Watterson junior Chris Diaz, who won the Division I doubles title in 2008 with his brother, Philip, and placed second in doubles in 2009, cruised through the Division II singles field without losing a set in any of his four matches. He beat defending state champion Joey Fritz of Cincinnati Country Day 6-3, 6-2 in the final. Diaz finished 31-0 in singles matches without losing a set and has a 62-1 career record in high school singles matches. He has won a team-record 62-consecutive singles matches. Upper Arlington won its staterecord 15th doubles championship but first since 1999 when junior Billy Weldon and freshman Stu Little defeated New Albany’s Riyad Bennoui and John Hendrix 6-4, 6-1 in the Division I final. For only the 10th time in the 91-year history of the boys state tournament, a pair of doubles teams from the same school matched up against each other in the final when senior Andrew Enslen and sophomore Chad Buchanan of Columbus Acade-

my played senior Eoghan Bahnson and sophomore Langston Hughes, also from Academy. Enslen and Buchanan topped their teammates 6-3, 6-4. BROTHERLY LOVE: After trading the state pole vault record with his twin brother, Joey, for much of the season, Olentangy Liberty junior Chris Uhle topped his sibling at the Division I state track and field meet on June 5 at Ohio State. Chris cleared 16 feet, 9 inches to win the state title and break his brother’s state record by an inch. Joey placed second at state in 16-0. Dublin Scioto’s Michael Shibko was third (15-8) and Gahanna’s Jacob Blankenship was fourth (15-8). “I never like knocking Joey down, but getting the state record was amazing,” Chris Uhle said. “After he missed his third attempt, I was thinking, ‘This is my show. If I clear this, I’ll get first place.’” Joey cleared 16-5 on April 13 but the height wasn’t recognized by the OHSAA because it was set in a dual meet. Chris cleared 16-6 at Liberty’s Freedom Relays on April 23 to set the official record, but the brothers shared the mark after they both cleared 16-7 at the Olentangy Invitational on April 30. Joey then owned the record by himself after clearing 16-8 at the Delaware County Elite Eight meet on May 6.

Another Fisherman’s Wharf, more great seafood Chalk up another one for the Chalkias family — a new Fisherman’s Wharf has opened. Sailing out dishes of high-grade seafood from its Polaris-area kitchen, this Wharf is off to a brisk start. For background, the original Fisherman’s Wharf premiered on Morse Road in the mid-’70s during a drastically more provincial dining era than we’re currently enjoying. Partially drawing on the Chalkias family’s Greek heritage, it was like the restaurant that launched a thousand others. Some are still chugging along, others have long run aground, but count among that distinguished number Niki’s Deli, a Fisherman’s Wharf in Bexley, Fisherman’s Wharf Pier II, Feta in Pickerington and the Big Fat Greek Kuzina. I’ll not bother mentioning every eatery with ties to the Chalkias brood, but rest assured that if you’re a fan of Greek food in Columbus,

MENU by G.A. Benton you’ve probably patronized a Chalkias-related restaurant. So of course Grecian accents make their way into the new Fisherman’s Wharf, but as its name suggests, this place is mostly about the fish. Its nautical theme is clearly stated outside, where beneath porthole windows peeking through huge and heavy black lacquered doors, a split-in-two captain’s wheel serves as handles. Inside, off-white walls with coppery swaths set off black and blue accents. So tablecloths, menus, napkins, servers outfits and even leftovers boxes are night shaded. Fanciful blue pops up in pretty, aquarium-riffing stained glass windows. There’s also a large and at-

tractive rectangular bar in the big and bustling restaurant. Overall, it’s a handsome, but not chichi, establishment. Accordingly, it generally draws in

regular folks splurging on excellent, and pricey, seafood. As for cooking and plating styles, they’ve ranged from straightforward to considerably fancier. From the latter group, the Sesame Ahi Tuna ($12) was a fine starter. Looking like a dozen dominoes toppled in a straight row, the raw, served room temperature “tiles” of delicious sashimi-grade fish sported crunchy seared rims encrusted with white and black sesame seeds. Artful squiggles of wasabi mayo and a fragrant oil provided modernist touches — but skip the overpowering soy sauce dip. Homier but soulful was the Seafood Chowder ($4.50/cup). Actually more like a soothing potato soup laced with clams, its starchy ballast was leavened with a nicely measured tang. Saladwise, my favorite was the eye-catching, tongue-delighting

Fisherman’s Wharf 1611 Polaris Pkwy., Westerville 614-431-1411 Web: bestgreekusa.com Cuisine: Seafood Price: $$$ ($20-$30 per person) Patio: Yes Hours: 11:30 a.m.-9:30 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 11:30 a.m.-10:30 p.m. Friday, 12-10:30 p.m. Saturday, 12-9 p.m. Sunday and near meal-in-itself Captain’s Artichoke Salad ($6). Like a gussied up Greek salad, its manifold elements (cucumber, roasted red peppers, creamy feta and much more) made for a dynamic combination. Navigating the mammoth menu for entrees can take a while. You’ll scan past delicacies like Day Boat Scallops, plump Danish scampi, killer Kodiak Alaskan Red King

Crab Legs, and luscious Maine lobster tails. Want ’em all? Then opt for the Baked Variety platter ($50, but could feed two) which rounds them up simply, perfectly cooked, dusted with seasoned breadcrumbs and presented with lakes of garlicky melted butter. For something “cheffier,” pick the terrific Macadamia Nut Crusted Halibut ($26). Sauced with a sweetish orange buerre blanc, it was a huge and truly beautiful piece of succulent snow-white fish. Soft and supple, yet endowed with bells and whistles galore (berries, bananas, nutella, whipped cream, chocolate sauce), Gina’s Crepes ($12, easily serves two) were the obvious dessert star.

Abusive customers pose issues for servers, restaurateurs Bill Glover was quite fond of his appetizer: braised pork belly drizzled with jalapeno ketchup and served with creamed corn. One of his customers, who apparently had a sensitivity to spiciness, had other ideas and wasn’t shy in sharing her thoughts. “She looked at me with this real callous face and said, ‘Where do you get off putting this on the menu? My tongue is swollen and I can hardly talk.’” Glover, chef and owner of Sage American Bistro in the University District, said he apologized but the guest wouldn’t relent. He asked, in front of a room full of astonished onlookers, what he could do to make her happy. She said nothing and stormed off with her dining companion, who also had a choice expletive for the chef. So the customer’s always right? It depends on who you ask. “You always have to lean on the side of the guest is right,” Glover said. “But on the food-service side you can’t believe the things we encounter. People leave this profession because they get bitter dealing with the public.” Indeed, pleasing guests is the objective of any diligent restaurateur. Certainly, they have some legitimate complaints: a forgotten fork, cloudy wine glass or cold chicken fricassee. So how does one differentiate constructive criticism from downright abuse? Industry veteran Paul Liu, owner of Haiku and Bento Go Go, said customers cross the line when they insult the staff.

there is no substitute for first-rate customer relations. “The food is an important component” of restaurants, he said. “But there are plenty of people who will eat mediocre food if the service is world-class.” His company sends secret diners in to test the determination of servers. They will, for example, say they found a hair on their burger. The servers too often will look for the wayward lock or quibble with customers when the solution is simple: “Toss the old one away and get them a new one,” Cannon said. “Service is a lost art in this industry,” he said. “Those that stay focused on it usually have better sales growth, significantly better profits and a significantly better culture and environment than those who don’t.”

“A lot of times when you talk civilly with them, the owner or the manager talks to them, they behave differently,” Liu said. “Sometimes they don’t and when they don’t, you politely ask them to leave.” It’s an endless discussion in the food-service industry, said Jarrod Clabaugh, director of communications for the Ohio Restaurant Association. “We always encourage our members to train their staffs on the importance of etiquette,” he said. “Whenever a customer’s request can be followed, like leaving a particular item out of a dish, they should do their best to meet that request.”

Most patrons are easy to please, Clabaugh said. “But, some customers’requests can be overreaching,” he said. “It’s important to walk the line carefully.” Howard Cannon of Restaurant Consultants of America, based in Alabama, said restaurants can never overvalue customer service. “In the old days it was ‘The customer’s always right,’” he said. “Now you can barely get an operator to agree with that. Ultimately they’re not trained to believe it.” Cannon said the industry has grown so much, so fast, that operators couldn’t teach the finer points of service to their staff. And, in his professional world,
