Emphasis on infrastructure

City to focus on capital improvements By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Marsha Grigsby has a lot in store for Dublin during her first year as city manager. The longtime city employee, whom Dublin City Council members named city manager last month, expects capi-

tal improvement projects, the Bridge Street corridor studies and other responsibilities to be completed in 2011. “One of the things with the city that Marsha Grigsby we’ve had for many

years and will have this year is the capital improvements program,” she told ThisWeek. “We have several transportation projects. Typically, that is one of the biggest parts of the capital improvement program.” Transportation projects on the list for 2011 include improvements to the intersections of Cosgray and Shier Rings

Road, as well as Perimeter Drive and Commerce Drive, Grigsby said. Work will also continue on the final Emerald Parkway extension. “We’re in the process of having talks with property owners about right-of-way acquisition,” she said, noting that if land acquisition goes quickly, a construction contact for the project could be award-

ed within the next year. Work on a new water tower on Dublin Road ,near the Bogey Inn, will also get rolling. Grigsby said the city plans to have the water tower built before the Presidents Cup comes to Muirfield in 2013. See CITY TO FOCUS, page A2

Dublin’s economy could see improvements in the new year. The city, like many, was affected by the recent recession and saw a decrease in income tax revenue, which makes up the lion’s share of city revenue. City manager and former Dublin finance director Marsha Grigsby is hoping this would turn around in 2011. “The good news is last year we saw an increase of income tax revenue over 2009,” she said. “We’re hoping things are turning around.” Economic development is one of the goals for Dublin City Council, and the economic development department got the OK to add one more staff member this year. Dublin’s first 2011 city council meeting could carry the first signs of turnaround for 2011. Grigsby said several economic development agreements to lure jobs to the city are up for a first reading on Jan. 10. Six economic development agreements are on council’s agenda and could net more than 737 new jobs for the city, if approved. Telecommunications equipment manufacturer Alcatel-Lucent could bring the most jobs. According to information from the city, the company is looking at moving 500 to 600 jobs from a leased space on East Broad Street in Columbus and has identified locations in central Ohio, Illinois, New Jersey and Texas for its informationtechnology and testing operations. The Ohio Department of Development approved $10-million in tax credits for the company over the next 10 years and Dublin is also offering incentives to locate at a Rings Road facility.

New electronic Accident spurs look at crosswalks edition now available online Historic Dublin By JENNIFER NOBLIT

ThisWeek Community Newspapers

After the death of a pedestrian struck by a vehicle in Historic Dublin last week, city staff members are looking at pedestrian and vehicular traffic in the area. Columbus resident Stephanie Auer, 44, was

struck by a minivan while crossing North High Street to meet a friend at Brazenhead shortly before 7 p.m. Dec. 28, information from the city said. According to the accident report released by the city Jan. 3, Auer was struck by a minivan traveling north while crossing from the west side of North High Street to the east side.

Road conditions were dry, the report said. Auer was taken to Dublin Methodist Hospital and then the Ohio State University Medical Center, where she died Dec. 30. According to a statement given to Dublin police by a witness who was at the door of See ACCIDENT, page A5

Cost savings on district’s 2011 list By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

continue with our programs, but conserve costs.” The district was awarded a $5.7-million no-interest loan from the state to fund eco-friendly improvements across the district, including energy-efficient lights, new boilers and water heaters. The savings are expected to pay off the state loan. But cost savings within the district will go beyond the electricity bill, Axner said. “Our hiring practices have been totally revamped. We’re definitely trying to be smarter about who we hire and when we hire,” he said.

Dublin City Schools’ New Year’s resolution will revolve around money. Like many across the county, Dublin will focus on saving money in 2011, Superintendent David Axner David Axner said. “The theme we’ve really adopted across the board in the district is to emphasize efficiencies,” he said. “We’re trying to do everything we can to See COST SAVINGS, page A6

Standards, start-stop times could change By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

A few changes could be coming to Dublin City Schools in 2011. While saving money will be a big focus for the district in the new year (see related story), Superintendent David Axner said it won’t be the only change coming. A decision regarding a recent recommendation from the school reform task force should come early in 2011. The group recommended that the school district push back See CHANGES, page A6

City to focus on capital improvements Continued from page A1 During a council meeting last month, the first phase of Amberleigh Park garnered approval from city council, Grigsby said. “It’s a pretty big deal. It’s the first phase of development of a new community park for Dublin,” she said. “It’s a pretty neat project and I think that will be a great amenity once it’s completed.” Dublin will also add more bike paths and for the first time bike lanes around the city. Grigsby said Brand Road would be the first to get bike lanes.

Other work regarding parks will occur in 2011. The 2010 city acquisition of the Holder property near the intersection of Bright Road and Riverside Drive will mean master planning for the historical park in 2011. Dublin also acquired the “Oak tree site” on Hard Road in 2010. “It resulted in a nice area,” Grigsby said. “It’s nearly 40 acres.” The site on Hard Road near Riverside Drive will be a passive park and Grigsby said the city would start installing trails on the site this year. Dublin will get to work on a sustainability project in the new year. Grigs-

by said the city would convert 44 city vehicles to run on compressed natural gas. The city will also work on installing a CNG fueling station at a city facility on Shier Rings Road. “One of city council’s goals is to be sustainable,” Grigsby said. Studies for the Bridge Street Corridor Plan are expected to be completed in 2011 as well. Dublin City Council members approved a vision report and implementation schedule in October, Grigsby said, and the city is in the process of selecting contractors to complete studies on infrastructure, transportation and

other city elements that could be affected by the plan. “(The Bridge Street Corridor Plan) will be a big focus this year and take a lot of staff effort,” Grigsby said. Council members will meet with the Planning and Zoning Commission, Architectural Review Board and Board of Zoning Appeals late this month to discuss the corridor plan, Grigsby added. “The goal is to have studies completed by September and that’s a pretty aggressive timeline,” Grigsby said. “The development will have a significant impact on the city for years to come.”

A few positions vacated last year will also be filled, Grigsby said. The appointment of Grigsby to city manager left a vacant finance director seat and Chief Michael Epperson left the Dublin Police Department in late summer. Heinz von Eckartsberg was named interim police chief. According to Grigsby, the city has used an outside contractor to help in finding a police chief. The process includes “mock scenarios to see how they react,” she said. “We’ll probably talk to firms later this month to do an assessment,” Grigsby said.

City leaders optimistic economy will turn around Continued from page A1 “We are still competing against several locations in other states for this project, as the company owns other facilities with excess capacity in places like Naperville, Ill.,” economic development administrator Colleen Gilger said in a news release

from the city. “Dublin has been identified as the ‘finalist’ location in Ohio and we hope to retain these 500 to 600 jobs to the region.” Other economic development agreements up for approval this month include incentives for Nationwide Children’s Hospital to construct a 22,000-square-foot

Sports Medicine and Orthopedics facility; InfoMotion Sports Technologies for 45 new technology jobs; HealthSpot Inc. for 60 jobs; Fast Switch Ltd. for the retention of 63 jobs and 25 new positions; and Equity Resources Inc. for a regional office expansion that could mean 15 new jobs in Dublin.

Despite the hard work of the development department, the city will remain cautious. Grigsby said council will receive quarterly updates on city finances. “Council has always done a really good job to live within their means,” she said. Several other municipalities

are having lay-offs and could have issues paying off debt, Grigsby said. That won’t occur in Dublin, she said. “We’ve always tried to be conservative, sometimes overly conservative,” Grigsby said. “But I’d much rather be criticized for that than the opposite.” This year also means proper-

ty tax re-evaluations, Grigsby said. “It could have an impact in 2012 depending on what happens there. It could affect tax increment financing funds,” which are used to fund infrastructure improvements, she said. jnoblit@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekNews.com

Alan Reuter is the owner of Woodhouse Day Spa, 19 N. High St., the first business to open in BriHi Square in Historic Dublin.

Spa is inaugural BriHi business By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Luxury is paramount at BriHi Square’s first business. The goal of the Woodhouse Day Spa that opened at 19 N. High St. late last month is to pamper and spoil guests who come for skin care, a massage, pedicure, manicure or other services. “This is truly luxurious self-indulgence and everyone deserves it,” owner Alan Reuter said. “The biggest thing is from the time you come in the door to the time you go to your car, you should be spoiled.” For Reuter, who was previously employed in the hospitality industry, opening the Woodhouse Day Spa gave him a chance to

stay in service closer to home. His previous job as a director of operations excellence kept him on the road and he clocked in more than 150 flights across the country last year. “I have a 7-year-old daughter at home and really what was important was staying home,” Reuter said. “I’m happily married and have a great family and I want to keep it that way.” While on the job and on the road he learned about service and that the guest experience is key. “I’ve been to a lot of spas,” Reuter said. “I’ve done a lot of research.” And his research led him to open Woodhouse Day Spa in Historic Dublin, which is the second Ohio location for the Texas-based

chain. The other is in the Cincinnati suburb of Montgomery. Construction of the inside of the building took about seven weeks and the result is dark wood floors, high ceilings and eightfoot doorways. Reuter said he was involved with every aspect of planning. “I like simple, understated luxury rather than getting too carried away,” he said. “It’s all in meeting and exceeding expectations.” The 6,000-square-foot business has 22 treatment rooms on two floors that range from nail and massage rooms to locker rooms and a Vichy shower room.

Downtown was busy on New Year’s Eve 1910 As Columbus and central Ohio moved toward the end of 2010, the area counted itself fortunate that it had missed the great storms that brought freeze warnings to the citrus-growing South and more than a foot of snow to much of the north. All of this bad news about bad weather is sure to remind us how lucky we are to miss such things. ED Well … at LENTZ least most of the time. Central Ohio has been relatively free of snow in the past few weeks. But some of us may remember that last winter brought us a lot of snow — after the first of the year. Such was the case in Columbus 100 years ago, as well. As 1910 became 1911, a large blast of cold air accompanied by snow, wind and other wintry things was heading straight for the Midwest. Fortunately, it did not arrive until a couple of days after New Year’s Eve. So, as it had so many times in the past, the party went on. New Year’s Eve in Columbus in 1910 would be recognizable to a visitor from our own time. There were a lot of happy people on the streets of downtown Columbus at the very late hour of 11 p.m. Some of them, having stopped at a party or two, were probably a little happier than others. But there were differences as well. Columbus in 1910 was a “streetcar city” whose newly developed suburbs in every direction were linked to the central business district by electrified streetcars. It was to the downtown that people came to work, to worship, to shop and to amuse themselves. It was in downtown Columbus that one would find the best stores, the best restaurants and most of the city’s theatres. And almost all of these places were open on New Year’s Eve. The Busy Bee confectionery store was selling several kinds of candy and ice cream. These included Salted Jordan Almonds, Crème de Menthe Marshmallows and New Year’s Neapolitan ice cream. This was described in one newspaper as “a blending of Cherry Glace, Oriental Ice and Belmont Cream. You will not find a richer or more satisfactory ice cream dessert: per quart, 60 cents.” After dinner at a local restaurant or a bit of ice cream at the Busy Bee, some residents passed

two. For the more traditional culture crowd, the place to visit was the Colonial Theatre. Taking advantage of technology, the Colonial offered to take ticket orders by telephone and follow up with “motorcycle ticket delivery.” The tickets in question offered admission to performances by “Mr. Mantell and his distinguished company” of Shakespearean actors. On New Year’s Eve, one could see “Romeo and Juliet” in the afternoon or “Richard III” in the evening. Most of the theatres, church services and other public gatherings let out around 11 p.m. and people began to fill the streets around Statehouse Square. They were coming out this early because the biggest difference between 1910 and 2010 is that the celebration of the New Year began at 11:30 p.m. rather than midnight. At 11:30, church bells began to chime, fireworks were ignited and a general celebration began. It began at 11:30 because some people still refused to follow the standard time established by the railroads many years earlier. These people still followed “sun time” and to them, midnight came 30 minutes earlier. At 12 a.m. Standard Time, the railroad locomotives at Union Station joined the celebration with blasts from their whistles and the party continued. After all of this celebrating, many of the happy residents of the city went home, enjoyed a dish of Busy Bee Neapolitan ice cream and went to bed with the confident belief that 1911 would be a good year. And as we now know, they were absolutely right. Happy New Year.

the evening at a local theatre. Some form of motion picture theatre had been present in Columbus since the 1890s. Nickelodeon parlors had given way to silent film presentations in larger rooms. To most people, going to the theatre still meant a trip to a place where real people performed on stage. In Columbus in 1910, one could choose from a variety of theatre presentations on New Year’s Eve. The High Street Theatre featured “Harry Clay Blaney in his new American play ‘The Boy from Wall Street,’an American play that is proving to be one of the greatest comedies ever staged.” Not to be outdone, B. F. Keith’s Theatre offered a play, “When Pat was King,” and vaudeville acts including “the Four Onetti Sisters, the Three Leighton Boys, and Irene Romaine — the dainty pianologist.” If one were still seeking amusement after all of this, Keith’s Ed Lentz writes a history column also offered a motion picture or for ThisWeek.

Accident spurs look at crosswalks Continued from page A1 Brazenhead during the incident, Auer was in the crosswalk, but the flashing lights were not activated. Another statement taken from a witness standing on the east side of the crosswalk said it appeared the vehicle was traveling faster than the 25 mile-per-hour posted limit. Community relations director Sandra Puskarcik said the speed the vehicle was traveling is part of the police department’s ongoing investigation. “We expect that investigation to take six to eight weeks,” she said, noting that charges aren’t expected to be filled until after the investigation is completed. Puskarcik said city staff members are meeting this week to look at pedestrian and other traffic in Historic Dublin. “We are looking at what happened last week and will be meeting this week to assess whether there are additional measures we can be taking,” she said Jan. 3. “We’re looking at Historic Dublin in a comprehensive manner.”

The pedestrian crosswalk across North High Street at North Street has seen a few previous accidents. According to information from the city, there have been two other incidents at the North High Street Crosswalk. Two pedestrians were struck by southbound vehicles at the crosswalk in 2006 and 2010, but injuries were not life threatening. Flashing signs were not posted at the time of the 2006 incident, but in 2010 the pedestrian had activated the flashing strobe lights before using the crosswalk, the accident report said. During a Dec. 7, 2009, meeting Dublin City Council members approved additional signage for the crosswalk. “There was a proposal last summer for in pavement lighting to be installed at this location,” the Dec. 7 meeting minutes showed. “The concern to be addressed was with visibility — both for motorists to be aware of pedestrians in the crosswalk and for visibility of the signage during the day and at night.” According to a 2009 staff memo on the

“Vichy is something the French introduced to us,” Reuter said. “It’s pretty remarkable.” According to the spa’s masseuse Dulci Dumont, the water massage alternates between different water temperatures and causes blood vessels to constrict. “The affect it has on the body is great,” she said. “It’s good on the muscles.” Reuter also called the manicures and pedicures at Woodhouse Day Spa “unique,” and employees noted the all-natural organic products used, jets that keep the water warm, comfortable chairs and hot stones. “You’re not coming in to get a nail change. You’re coming in for an experience,” Reuter said. “We try to ensure that the visit is about creature comforts.” Guests can also relax with a beverage in a sitting room; Reuter said the spa carries a “modest” offering of wine in addition to soda and water, and is willing to run to any nearby restaurant for food or beverages. “We can provide almost anything and if we don’t have it, we’ll get it next door,” he said. Although a close proximity to restaurants and other businesses

was a draw, Reuter said, BriHi Square was an obvious choice for his business. “I moved to Dublin 19 years ago and have watched Historic Dublin move and change,” he said. “How can you go wrong?

IN CASE OF EMERGENCY You may have heard the standard advice to maintain an “emergency fund” equal to three to six months’ worth of expenses. Well, like all generalities, it does not always apply. You are better advised to calculate the amount needed for your own particular emergency fund on the basis of your job stability and income predictability. So, if you think that your job is on shaky ground, you would be well advised to save at least a year’s worth of expenses. If you work on commission or your income is erratic, the same advice holds. What you should be seeking to avoid is the necessity of selling stocks or borrowing heavily in the event of an emergency. The economic crisis of the past several years has made people more sensitive to the need to build an emergency fund. The amount of money in this fund will vary depending on a person’s age, occupation, and financial obligations. I can help you design short- and long-term financial strategies. Our initial meeting with you will be a fact-finding interview where we discuss your financial objectives, tolerance for risk, and timeline for needing funds. Align your money with your life.

North High Street crosswalk, the installation of flashing lights on the actual crosswalk was looked into to make the crosswalk more visible, but it was deemed too expensive and difficult to maintain, especially during winter months. During the Dec. 7, 2009, meeting, council members approved $22,000 in improvements that included two “internally illuminated” signs “with yellow strobes that will flash when a pedestrian uses the pushbutton,” meeting minutes said. The crosswalk improvements approved in late 2009 were completed by March 23, 2010, Puskarcik said. “Some of the improvements were made because the amount of pedestrian and vehicular traffic has increased,” she said. “We needed to take a look at traffic patterns and when residents bring something up we are responsive.” Staff findings are expected to be reviewed by council this month. jnoblit@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekNews.com

Cost savings on school district’s 2011 to-do list Continued from page A1 Saving money is paramount because Axner said districts across the state are bracing for a hit in state foundation funding. “It’s just a matter of how much. We’ve heard numbers from 10 to 32 percent in reduction for the next biennial (budget),” he said. “(The reduction) is something we know for a fact is going to happen. We’ll know in late February or early March.” Districts across the country will also lose funding from stimulus funds. “We had Race to the Top, the jobs bill money, stimulus and other federal monies, but I think it’s pretty clear that after next year districts will pretty much be on their own,” he said. “We’ve been pretty creative with those monies, but we’re definitely going to see reductions.” Axner said the district would look at delaying the next operating levy as long as possible. The combination bond and operating levy passed by voters in 2008 committed to not asking voters for more money until fall 2011, but Axner is hop-

ing to push that back. “We are discussing what we can do to extend or push that levy back. … It is definitely on the board of education’s minds to at least look at the feasibility to stretch these dollars,” he said. “It’s a tough economy and we can’t continue to just pass levies and raise issues.” Informal levy discussions will likely occur in the early part of 2011, with public discussions to follow in February or March, Axner said. “We need to do things a little smarter,” he said. “We’re looking at alternative ways to cut costs but keep the programs. This district is one of the best in the state of Ohio and in the nation … we are going to keep it that way.” The district will try to be proactive while waiting for the state budget. “(Treasurer) Steve Osborne and I are continuing to meet with representatives that have a say on the budget,” Axner said. “We’re doing our best to advocate for Dublin City Schools.” jnoblit@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekNews.com

CHANGES Continued from page A1 the start time for the high school day by at least 45 minutes. The task force revealed research that pointed to academic improvements and other benefits that resulted from giving high school students a later start time and, thus, a little more time to snooze. While the task force also eyed elementary and middle school start times, no change was recommended for the younger levels. Axner said the district is looking into financial impacts before making a final decision. “The surveys and research were pretty clear that we should look to a later starting time,” he said. “This is where we mix the best practice of starting later with the efficiency piece of can we do this with transportation and not spend more dollars?” According to Axner, a decision on a starting time for high school students should “come out the first part of this year; the earliest is late January.” Another focus for schools this year will be new national education standards adopted by the state. “They’re very different from current standards,” Axner said.

“In a nutshell, it will lessen the number or multitude of areas to cover, but encourage a deeper understanding of the subject.” The new educational standards will be imposed for all Ohio districts this year, while state assessments will follow in a few years, Axner said. “It’s really going to be tricky. Unfortunately, it won’t be a perfect fit with new standards and implementation and assessments,” he said. “We’ll be on the old assessments while we’re trying to adopt the new standards. “For example, everyone will switch over with math achievement at the same time, but students tested next year will still need direction and teaching for the past standards,” he explained. “In lower grades by the time they get to that test, it may have already changed.” Axner said the district has a new plan that “layers and tiers” the implementation of the new educational standards that will help students both test well and learn. “Different students will have to be on different plans, but that is an issue for all districts, not just Dublin,” he said. jnoblit@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekNews.com

The Beat: Both of your parents were pianists? Seems like you would either embrace this or run away from it! Talk about their influence on you as a young person and still today as a professional musician. Martina Filjak: My parents were both amazing, although my father unfortunately died when I was very young. Growing up in a musical family was an absolute privilege. I cannot even really recall the first time my baby fingers went over the keyboard, but certainly I was still a toddler. I have been incredibly attracted to music and to the piano in the same time. I recall I was able to read music in the same time I was starting to be able to read and write. TB:You also faced challenges from a standpoint of social/political upheaval in your country when you were young. Can you share how that may have shaped you as a person and an artist? MF: I indeed have experienced and grew up amidst the entire huge, historical change that has significantly changed the circumstances of the early 90s in entire Eastern Europe — and I have also experienced several years of war in my home country. It is impossible to not be somehow touched or marked by those events on a strong personal level. Those memories are in the same time very public and very intimate. I say public because on one hand you see it in newspapers and on TV, and on the other hand private, since you experi-

ence yourself these traumatic events that are often touching very hidden parts of (one’s) self. Naturally, it has given my personality a certain edge — perhaps, an edge is something that an artist could use at times? I certainly hope so. TB: In Columbus, you’ll be playing Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G. Can you talk about this piece? MF: This concerto is a special piece for me. I learned it listening to it for weeks while I was about 12 years old. I was recovering from a traffic accident and wasn’t allowed to read, play or be exposed to a too strong light after the concussion I suffered. So back then, the Ravel concerto was my saviour. After I recovered I had to beg my teacher to let me play it - she wouldn’t at first as she said I was too young. But I learned it anyway. TB:You are very expressive while you play. Are you aware of this?

MF: Thank you. I believe this is one of my goals - when I play I really do attempt to express and give the absolute maximum. TB: As a young “classical” artist, do you feel a responsibility to bring this music to young audiences? MF: I would say, I try to bring music to all possible audiences, not necessarily only the young ones. I have a feeling that, since the appreciation of classical music comes with a certain ‘age and social status,’or at least it is commonly believed to be like that, this idea in the same time scares potential audiences off. But I also have a feeling that classical music is making a ‘comeback’ - maybe people are starting to get intrigued to know more about music that was able to survive through centuries?

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-

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

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. “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

of service to their staff. And, in his professional world, 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.”

Recipe of the week 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 over-

reaching,” 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

Community briefs Bonobo born at Columbus zoo Dec. 28 The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium welcomed a new bonobo on Dec. 28. As staff members arrived to work on Dec. 28 they discovered the anticipated birth of a baby bonobo had occurred, a news release from the zoo said. The baby, whose sex is currently unknown, is the 12th bonobo born at the zoo since 1990 when the zoo received the smallest species of great apes. Bonobo “Ana Neema� carried the baby for 8-and-a-half months before the late December birth. The baby is her third. Testing will confirm whether Toby or Donnie is the father. The baby and mother are not on view to allow for bonding. The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium is one of nine facilities in North America that has bonobos and the zoo has 16. Bonobos were the last of the great ape species to be discovered, a news release from the zoo said, and only 5,000 to 50,000 live in the forests of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Nominations sought for local champions The Dublin Chamber of Commerce and Dublin City Schools will accept online nominations for the 2011 Community Champion Awards. The annual honor recognizes Dublin City Schools students in grades 4 to 12 and staff members for volunteerism, character, leadership and a sense of responsi-

bility and caring for others. The awards will be presented on April 16. “The success of our business community is closely linked to the success of our school district. With this in mind, we created a program to nurture young citizens who engage society through leadership and service,� said COO of the Dublin Chamber of Commerce Jenny Jakse. Nominations will be taken online at dublinchamber.org/NominateCommunityChampion.cfm from Jan. 3 to Feb. 11. The awards will be handed out during a ceremony from 10 to 11:30 a.m. April 16 at Dublin Jerome High School, 8300 Hyland-Croy Road. A reception will follow. Each winner will receive a medal and gift bag filled with items from local businesses. Three seniors from each high school will also receive a $500 scholarship and one student from grades 4 to 11 will be given a $100 savings bond. A Dublin City Schools staff member will also be given a $500 donation to a school project of their choice.

Raneal Ewing of the Dublin Scioto High School boys basketball team admits he’s tried to forget about the shooting woes that bothered the Irish during a recent four-game losing streak. As the leading scorer for the Irish, averaging 14.6 points through nine games, the senior guard is ready for others to pitch in. “The past is the past, and we’ve got a lot more games ahead of us,” Ewing said. “We’ve got a league game Friday against (Dublin) Jerome and they’re our rival, so we’ve got to bounce back.” The Irish snapped the losing streak with a 51-37 victory at Athens on Dec. 30. The streak included losses to Westerville South (65-39 on Dec. 10), Westerville North (61-40 on Dec. 17) and

Westerville Central (56-43 on Dec. 21) — all league opponents. The Irish had chances to pull out a win in the final minutes against Buckeye Valley on Dec. 29 in the Larry Eberst Classic at Olentangy Liberty but lost 46-43. “With young guys there comes inconsistency and that’s what we have right now,” coach Tony Bisutti said. “Our guys know it, and we’re trying to address it. It’s not going to happen overnight. Our defense is a lot better, but we’re not shooting it (well).” The loss of Jamare Mills only has added to Scioto’s offensive woes. Mills’ mother informed coaches that her son was leaving the team to focus on academics and football. The 6-foot-5 tight end and defensive lineman is being recruited by a number of Division I

programs. Senior Jalen Johnson, who also is 6-5, has been starting in place of Mills. “We went through a drought where people were having down games,” senior guard Justin Craig said. “It’s real important this week for us to get some momentum. Jerome is a big game for us. They beat us twice last year and got us real good.” Jerome defeated Scioto 75-32 and 66-44 last season. Junior guards Cam Wilson (62) and Nick Neale (6-3) have been the scoring leaders for the Celtics, who also lost four in row in December. “They’re a little bit like us in that they’re not very post-orientBy Tim Norman/ThisWeek ed,” Bisutti said. “They’ve struggled, but they’ve Scioto’s Ryan Duncan tries to get past Westerville South’s Jaren Edwards on Dec. 10.

Jerome’s Nick Neale passes away from the pressure of Hilliard Darby’s Brennan Hook on Dec. 30. The Celtics play host to Dublin Scioto on Friday in OCC-Cardinal Division action.

The new calendar year brings a new focus for the Dublin Jerome High School girls basketball team. Coach Matt Martin wants his players to focus more on offense. “I think we’re giving up 34.1 points per game and that’s keeping us in every game and that’s a pretty good defensive stat line,” Martin said. “The problem is we’re scoring about the same on offense (35.4 per game). We should be scoring at least in the high 40s or low 50s. We’re just not getting things done on that side of the ball.” Kaitlin Miller, a sophomore point guard, averaged 11.1 points in the first eight games to lead the Celtics. Senior guard Brooke Carrel has averaged 7.1 points per game, followed by sophomore guard Katherine McCoy (6.6), sophomore forward Sarah Auker (4.5) and sophomore forward Lindsay Reiland (4.4). “A lot of it is mentality,” Martin said. “You have to want to score the same with four minutes left in the game that you would in the final two minutes of a game. You have to have be able to take the ball to the rim.” On Dec. 28, Jerome lost to

Upper Arlington 39-36 in the Watterson Holiday Tournament. The Celtics beat Ready 39-27 on the second day of the event. “It was an important win for us, going into the new year at 44,” Martin said. “We have a back end of our schedule that is gameheavy, so we have to make sure we come out ready to play. “We told the girls last week that the excuse of being a young team is over. We can’t be just one person or we can’t be two people, everyone has to be ready.” Jerome has lost several close games, the largest margin coming in a 37-27 loss to Olentangy on Dec. 21. The Celtics lost to Westerville Central 25-21 in the season opener on Dec. 3. They also lost to Westerville North 2826 on Dec. 7 and to UA by three at the Watterson tournament. “We have been losing to good teams by a minimal amount of points,” Martin said. “We’re a few rebounds, a few layups and a few free throws from being 80.” •The boys team was 3-6 overall and 1-3 in the OCC-Cardinal before playing Marysville last Wednesday.

Coffman girls focus on finishing off foes By THAD PLUMLEY ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Practices for the Dublin Coffman High School girls basketball team will look like the closing minutes of nail-biting thrillers in the coming weeks. The Shamrocks have let a pair of fourth-quarter leads get away this season. And with key OCC-Central Division contests looming, everyone involved knows they need to shore up the lategame execution. “We haven’t stepped up late at times See LARSON, page B3 and it’s frustrating,” coach Bryan Patton

said. “The girls are disappointed, and we’re disappointed as coaches. The good news is we didn’t lose anything in the league and there is a lot of basketball ahead.” There are key games on the horizon. Six of the next seven contests — and six of the eight this month — are against OCC-Central foes. Among those games is a rematch with defending league champion Upper Arlington, which Coffman edged 61-58 on Dec. 14, and Thomas Worthington, which beat the Shamrocks 51-47 on Dec. 17. Coffman travels to the Golden Bears on

Jan. 14 and plays host to the Cardinals on Jan. 28. “I’m excited about January. There’s going to be some good games,” Patton said. “What we’re going to have to do is win a tough one on the road. We’re pretty good at home, but what it’s going to take to win the league is winning on the road.” Against Thomas, Coffman led by as many as four points in the fourth quarter but couldn’t hold on. Most recently, it led by as many as five points in the fourth quarter of a 51-43 loss to Toledo

Central Catholic on Dec. 30. However, the Shamrocks made a series of errors in the final period against Central Catholic that not only hurt them but swung the momentum to the Irish, who ended up scoring nearly half their points (24) in the quarter. A year ago, Coffman squandered fourth-quarter leads in multiple league games. The Shamrocks were somewhat young last season, but despite having four sophomores contributing regularly this seaSee COFFMAN, page B4

2010: The Year In Review

Off-field tragedy, stunning 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 23yard line to the Watterson 6, only to be stopped on fourth-and-1. Buchtel, which finished 11-4, 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 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-thescenes 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.

man 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 course a few hours later, St. Charles was well on its way to its second consecutive state title. 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 thirdplace 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. 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 swim-

Fellow CCL member Hartley also won a state title, beating Chagrin Falls 34-13 in the Division IV final.

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 71-45 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, 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 outrebounding Gahanna 36-18. Northland, which had beaten Cincinnati Princeton 60-58 in the 2009 state final, spent several weeks as the No. 1ranked team in the country, according to most national polls. Among the Vikings’victories were a 53-52 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.” OVERCOMING TRAGEDY: The Hill-iard Davidson football team fell short in its quest to repeat as Division I state champion, 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 OCCCentral 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 themselves 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-yearold Arthur Lane was struck by a train

and killed on the eve of the team’s 1615 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 Mam-pieri 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 Hack-

2010: THE YEAR IN REVIEW Continued from page B2 mers 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. ACES ON THE COURT: Central Ohio players swept the Division I and II state titles in the boys tennis tournament on May 29 at 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 Academy 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 166 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. WOULDA, COULDA, SHOULDA: The Westerville North boys cross country team may be wondering “what if” for quite some time after the Division I state meet on Nov. 6 at Scioto Downs. The Warriors appeared to be a strong candidate to finish in the top six before losing their No. 2 runner Jeff Hannaford to a disciplinary issue. According to a school official, Hannaford, a fourtime state qualifier, did not run at state because he violated the school and school district codes of conduct. Not only was Hannaford missing from North’s lineup, but Kent Ford was slowed by a knee injury and Evan Larrick failed to finish after suffering an ankle injury halfway through the race. Hannaford’s twin brother, Brian, finished third in 15 minutes, 27.7 seconds, as the Warriors placed 15th of 16 teams with 276 points, well behind champion Louisville (125). North also finished 15th in its only other state appearance in 1996. “You can’t play the wouldacoulda-shoulda game,” coach Dave Weaner said. The Hannafords helped North win its first regional championship on Oct. 30 at Pickerington North, as the Warriors scored 69 points to edge runner-up Reynoldsburg (71) and third-place Dublin Coffman (79). Brian Hannaford won the regional title in 15:50.7, with Jeff placing third in 1:59.3.

to capturing the Division IV state championship. The Warriors, who finished 271, rallied from 18 points down to defeat Fort Loramie 49-46 in a state semifinal on March 19 at Ohio State and then rallied again to beat Berlin Hiland 45-41 in the final the next day. Shicole Watts paced the Warriors with 16 points, nine rebounds and three steals in the semifinal and 14 points, 10 rebounds and four steals in the final on her way to being named the state co-Player of the Year. The only other central Ohio girls team to reach state was Reynoldsburg, which lost to eventual Division I champion Canton McKinley 42-39 in a semifinal. Three area boys teams advanced to state. Gahanna lost to eventual champion Massillon Jackson 62-50 in a semifinal in Division I. Ready lost to Orrville 50-48 in a Division III semifinal and Newark Catholic lost to Dayton Jefferson Township 59-52 in the final in Division IV, despite a 20point, four-assist performance by senior Matt Dawson. CHAMPIONS ON THE MAT: Central Ohio had only two state champions in wrestling, including Westerville North’s Josh Demas, who won a state title for the second consecutive season. Demas won the 171-pound title

in Division I, defeating Copley’s Sam Wheeler 9-3 in the final. In 2009, he won the title at 152. The area’s only other state champion was Dublin Scioto’s Randy Languis, who edged Massillon Perry’s Shane Foster 5-4 in the final at 140 in Division I. Marysville’s Jake McCombs was the runner-up at 125 in Division I and Olentangy’s Trevor Fiorucci was the runner-up at 103 in Division II. Marysville was the area’s highest-placing team in Division I, scoring 64.5 points to place fourth behind champion Wadsworth (172), and Olentangy was the highplacing team in Division II, finishing 10th (38) behind champion St. Paris Graham (223). NO LONGER SECOND BEST: After finishing second in the Division II state girls golf tournament as a sophomore, Columbus Academy junior Morgan Ransom shot a 140 to win the Division II state tournament on Oct. 16 at Ohio State’s Gray Course. Ransom’s two-day total tied the second-lowest individual score in a girls golf state championship.

In the Division I girls state tournament, Dublin Jerome’s Lauren Bellinger and Sarah Stein finished second in doubles, losing to Cincinnati Ursuline Academy’s Komel Safdar and Mehvish Safdar 6-4, 6-2 in the final. Upper Arlington senior Niki Flower finished second in singles, losing to Cincinnati Mount Notre Dame’s Sandy Niehaus 2-6, 6-4, 6-4 in the final. After the match, Flower, who had won the singles title in 2009 and was second in doubles in 2008, was taken to an area hospital, where she was treated for dehydration. Flower, however, returned the next day and pulled out two wins at first singles to help the Golden Bears defeat Cincinnati Ursuline Academy 3-1 in a semifinal and Westlake 3-1 in the final to capture their 14th state team title. “I worried if she eventually was going to hit a wall,” coach Shaun Stamps said. “Niki is a true example of a team player. She has a lot of heart and she always, always finishes strong.” “I definitely had to overcome my fear of needles to help us win,” Flower said, referring to an IV needle. “I knew this was my last day of high school tennis, so I put all I had into it.”

Because of that, portions of practice focus on simulating high-pressure situations. The goal is to dry up the unforced errors such as turnovers, failing to box out at a key time and missed free throws. “We’ve done it in practice a few times and I can definitely say we’re going to be doing it more now,” Stranges said. “It will help us. We’re not down. We know we have talent and that we’re a good team; we just need to work on some things.
