Santin to lead GVS for six months By GARY SEMAN JR. ThisWeek Community Newspapers Brian Santin will be busy for the next six months. Aside from being the chief resident surgeon for the Mount Carmel Health System, he will lead the German Village Society until July. He was appointed last month to replace Darci Congrove as president of the board of trustees. “I think the timing was appropriate in that I acclimated myself with the structure and day-to-day operations of the society,” he said. “So this position offers me the greatest opportunity to have a positive and meaningful impact on the neighborhood.” Meanwhile, Mike Yarbrough was named vice president; Roy Bieber, treasurer; and Jeanne Likins, secretary. In July, Santin and his fiancée, Crystal Seamon — also a member of the GVS board — will move to Cincinnati, where Santin will begin a two-year surgical fellowship at Good Samaritan Hospital. Because of new bylaws, officers will be appointed in October. Yarbrough is expected to fill in for Santin in the months in between. “That was probably one of the toughest issues to deal with,” Santin said of having to leave early. However, the couple will keep their South Fifth Street home and plan to return to Columbus when Santin’s training is complete. Santin, 31, was elected to the board last year but has been involved in GerSee SANTIN, page A3

Maennerchor board OKs sale to CCS Sunday bash A closer look caps 50th anniversary By GARY SEMAN JR. ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The expansion of Stewart Alternative Elementary School has cleared a significant hurdle. The Columbus Maennerchor’s board of directors unanimously approved the sale of its property, 966 S. High St., to Columbus City Schools. The district officially will take possession of the building when the $1.3-million deal is closed, which is tentatively set for Jan. 12, said Kim Norris, spokeswoman for the district. CCS will then lease the main building back to Maennerchor until Aug. 31. Several important legislative maneuvers remain. The German Village and Brewery District commissions must approve the school district’s plans and Columbus City Council must vote on vacating Pearl Street, which separates the two properties. Meanwhile, the Maennerchor intends to move to an adjacent building, known as the Dutch House. Werner Niehaus, president of the Maennerchor board of directors, said it wasn’t practical to hold onto the current building, which was too big and too expensive to maintain. While the

The Columbus Maennerchor’s board of directors unanimously approved the sale of its property, 966 S. High St., to Columbus City Schools. The district officially will take possession of the building when the $1.3-million deal is closed, which is tentatively set for Jan. 12, said Kim Norris, spokeswoman for the district. CCS will then lease the main building back to Maennerchor until Aug. 31.

Mannerchor enjoys a dedicated following, membership has fallen over the years. “We should not be unhappy to downsize,” he said. The Dutch House, roughly 3,200 square feet, is a suitable location, Niehaus said. The building is in good condition but it is in need of infrastructure repair. Niehaus wouldn’t speculate how much it would cost to renovate, but said he would like to build a 2,000-squarefoot addition to accommodate banquets. Niehaus said he was not sure if the Dutch House would be ready by Aug. 31 but seemed

optimistic that the school district would grant the Maennerchor lease extensions beyond that date if an alternate location was not found. The Maennerchor, which is a German singing society founded in 1848, will proceed with its programs until permanent housing is found. Several local organizations have offered to host activities sponsored by the organization. “We will not fall apart,” Niehaus said. The Stewart school, 40 E. Stewart Ave., was badly damaged in a fire July 30. The students have been reassigned to Beck Elementary School since the beginning of the school year. Norris said the incident, which was a suspected arson, pushed the school to the top of a list of district buildings to renovate. The plan, estimated at $12-million, calls for a complete restoration of the school, plus an 8,000- to 9,000square-foot addition on the west side of the building, which would encroach on the Maennerchor property across Pearl Street. Meanwhile, the community will be invited to help plan the new Stewart facility, Norris said. “We already have a wonderful working relationship with a very supportive community, and we have for a number of years, and we’re looking forward to continuing that,” she said. gseman@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekNEWS.com

By GARY SEMAN JR. ThisWeek Community Newspapers The party is officially over on Sunday. The German Village Society’s final 50th anniversary celebration, the last in a string of soirees and events held over the past 12 months, is scheduled for 6:30 to 9 p.m. Jan. 9 at the Meeting Haus, 588 S. Third St. The event is free and open to the public, but attendees are encouraged to RSVP at germanvillage.com. Cake, ice cream and cocktails will be served. The theme of the gift registry will reflect the society’s 51st birthday (officially on Jan. 10), so prices will range from $5.10 to $510. “Celebrating the 50 years of accomplishments has been great fun, and the degree of pride we’ve been able to stir up has been very rewarding,” said Bill Mains, co-chair of the 50th anniversary committee. “We don’t want to see everyone put that back on the shelf till the next occasion. We are hoping to go into the 51st year with the same collective commitment to the community we enjoyed at the kick-off of the celebration a year ago.” Indeed, there were many reasons to rejoice, said Jeanne Likins, secretary of the GVS.

The Life and Times of Fred Holdridge.” “Fred probably mentored half of the village, if not more,” said Wayne Owens, founder and general manager of the Village Singers. “He was an entrepreneur, instigator, collaborator — I could go on and on.” But Holdridge and Burns’ influence reached beyond German Village.

Local director wraps up film By GARY SEMAN JR. ThisWeek Community Newspapers That’s a wrap. German Village resident David Sabbath has completed shooting his first movie, “God Don’t Make the Laws,” a portion of which was filmed in the neighborhood. “Nothing surprised me,” he said of the filming, which wrapped up Dec. 22. “I knew it See LOCAL DIRECTOR, page A2

LOCAL DIRECTOR Continued from page A1 was going to be a lot of work. I knew all my days would be very long.” Sabbath wrote and directed the movie, his first full-length feature project. His production company specializes in commercials. “I loved the process,” he said. “Would I like to do movies? Yeah. It won’t be my last.” He said he will have a 30-minute documentary about the filming available sometime in March and is hoping to have it posted in the Internet Movie Database — www.imdb.com — shortly thereafter. The story focuses on the fictional town of Rockwell, a town that doesn’t have much use for change, which also is a part of its dark secret. That secret becomes threatened when a mysterious teenager comes to town. A basketball narrative threads the needle of the movie, which was shot in Granville, Newark and German Village. Veteran actors Paul Sorvino (Goodfellas) Bruce Davison (X-Men) and Robert Prescott

(Michael Clayton) had roles in the movie. “All three of them brought a lot to the table,” he said. “That’s what they all do.” But there was some local talent, as well. Sabbath pointed to notable performances from Tiffany Arnold, who played the mayor of Rockwell, and Jason Crabtree, who played Harvey Cobb, the sheriff and football coach. The movie’s opening sequence was filmed on Parsons Avenue while other segments were shot at the German Village Coffee Shop. Schiller Park was the backdrop for a car-chase scene. It snowed early on in the process, forcing minor changes in the shoot and dialogue. “So it went from a fall movie to a winter movie,” Sabbath said. Sabbath said he intends to have a local private screening at the end of summer. He said he wants to keep it on the festival circuit so he can show it at the Sundance Film Festival next January and then look for a distributor. gseman@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekNEWS.com

HOLDRIDGE munity Newspapers. Holdridge also had a passion for the arts and supported many local institutions. “Fred Holdridge was a great friend to the arts in Columbus,” said Jami Goldstein, vice president of marketing for the Greater Columbus Arts Council. “Most organizations in town counted him as either a donor, subscriber, patron or all of the above. “More than anything, he was engaged in what was going on in the city and he cared, deeply, about the success of our community. Columbus is much poorer having lost Fred’s indomitable and generous spirit.” Geoff Schmidt, owner of Schmidt’s Sausage Haus, said Holdridge was one of the biggest boosters of the German Village Oktoberfest, which Schmidt’s now organizes. “Fred was a great spokesperson,” Schmidt said. “He was instrumental in getting German Village people involved in the Oktoberfest and many of the other German Village activities.”

Holdridge suffered a serious fall about three years ago and lost his mobility, said longtime friend David Schooler, who owns Town & Country Travel. He had been spending winters in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. “Other than that, his mind was still running full tilt,” Schooler said. “He was hard to keep up with.”

Holdridge had relatives scattered throughout the United States but his real family was in German Village, Schooler said. “Fred touched so many lives,” he said. “I’m not sure if he ever really realized that. That really was his legacy. gseman@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekNEWS.com

Continued from page A1 “I think one of the best things about celebrating an anniversary is it gets you thinking about the past and the future,” she said. “And I’m very enthusiastic about the next 50 years of the German Village Society.” Likins pointed to one of her personal highlights in the nottoo-distant past. In 1986, the now-defunct German Village Foundation sponsored the First National Symposium of Historic Communities, in which 32 representatives of historic districts in 22 states came to the neighborhood to talk about revitalization. “We’ve been that leader in the preservation movement,” she said. “Our mission is in the community but it also extends much farther than that.” Sarah Irvin Clark, co-chair of the 50th anniversary committee, agreed that the goals of the organization would remain. “I think our biggest priority is to keep the historic preservation going,” she said. Clark said Sunday’s bash is not an end, but a beginning. “It’s time for fun,” she said. “It’s launching us into the next 50 years. So it’s all good. A lot of the things we did this year will be replicated in years to come.”

SANTIN Continued from page A1 man Village civic activities for some time. For the past twoand-a-half years, he has been chairman of the Third Street streetscape committee, which will offer various aesthetic and functional improvements for the community’s most recognizable corridor. He said he hopes to have recommendations on improving the roadway ready this month and submitted to the board for review in February. Other goals include using technology to keep the neighborhood on the vanguard of historic preservation and increasing membership. He likes being active in the neighborhood. “Crystal and I enjoy German Village,” he said. “We fully believe it’s a unique, vibrant, urban neighborhood. We’re not the type of folks to complain and not do something about it.” Congrove, who will maintain a seat on the board, had high praise for Santin. “Brian is a high-energy person who has demonstrated his commitment to GVS by chairing the streetscape committee, which is championing the important Third Street project, by co-leading the ‘Go Green’ recycling initiative and by playing an instrumental role in getting the new GVS website up and running efficiently,” she said. She said she would be focused on co-chairing the Haus und Garten PreTour event, which represents about 25 percent of the GVS’ annual operating budget. “So this role deserves significant undivided attention,” she said. gseman@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekNEWS.com

tory of your home? Do you know the history and want to share it with the society for our files? Do you want to join a new committee? Volunteer some time in our visitor center or in one of the parks? I promise you can find a great fit by visiting www.germanvillage.com and looking at all the society has to offer. After all, we are 50 now — we know what we’re doing and usually do it right! As for me, in this last year I had the good fortune to continue my work for the German Village Society from Athens, Georgia. I knew when we moved that I’d always be connected to 43206, but didn’t anticipate getting to continue my work from afar. I published a book, thanks in large part to the 50th anniversary committee and the board of trustees for their support and book-launch-party-planning skills. “Remembering German Village” was a joy to work on and so exciting to see in print — it was also way over-given as a Christmas gift this year to everyone I’ve ever met in my life. Thanks for all you did to make 2010 fantastic in German Village. And thanks for all that’s to come in 2011. Without the enthusiasm, support and creativity of our neighbors and membership, the society never could have made 50 look so good. And now we’ll make 51 look even better! Happy New Year!

50 years of practice, still managed to make it look pretty easy. The wheels on this event keep spinning and, JODY thanks to a deGRAICHEN termined team of volunteers, board members and committee members, all the pieces and parts fell into place. Though a fairly recent endeavor, the society kept its future in mind and began the search for a new director. This ability to look ahead, determine the needs of the neighborhood and plan for continued success has made the society relevant for 50 years and will continue to do so in the future as we begin a new chapter in the society’s ever-lengthening book. As we look to 2011, think long and hard about what you want your contribution to your neighborhood to be in this coming year. Do you have an interest in volunteering? If so, the society very likely has a niche for you. Do you simply want to give back to your community with a financial contribution? If you aren’t already a member of the society, please consider joining. If you are, thank you for your membership dollars. This is a slow time of year (but thank goodness the fun committee will keep us busy!), but also a great time to take stock of your place in German Village. Do you want to learn more about the his-

As we turn the page on another year, I can’t help but look back at all the German Village Society accomplished in 2010. First and foremost, the society turned 50, with both style and grace. We had a dedicated and talented crew of volunteers who served on the 50th anniversary committee who, I imagine, view the close of the year with mixed emotions. They put in a lot of hard work, a lot of time and raised a lot of dollars, but I know for a fact that they had fun doing it and looked forward to committee meetings. Thanks to this committee, the society held an incredible gala and enjoyed monthly events throughout the year to remind us of why our membership dollars count, are critical and how they contribute to our neighborhood at large. Also this year, the society, with tremendous thanks and credit to WOSU, got to see our history documented for posterity in the “Columbus Neighborhoods” series produced by WOSU. No neighborhood has a history like ours, and no neighborhood has records, the society and the institutional memory that ours can claim. But what we learned through this is that we’re worthy of a larger audience and easily shared thanks to our collection of stories, old photos and years worth (50 to be exact) of antics by neighborhood characters. The society produced a successful Haus und Garten Tour in a tricky economy and, thanks to

As it were

Downtown Columbus 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. Well, at 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 instantly be recognizable in some ways 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 themED selves. It was in downtown LENTZ 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 the evening of the last day of the year at a local theatre. Some form of motion picture theatre had been present in Columbus since the 1890s. Over the years, nickelodeon parlors had given way to silent film presentations in larger rooms.

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

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 went home, enjoyed a dish of Busy Bee Neapolitan ice cream and went to bed with the belief that 1911 would be a good year. As we now know, for the most part, they were right. Happy New Year.

But to most people, going to the theatre still meant a trip to a place where 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, Keith’s also offered motion pictures. 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 were for 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. Ed Lentz writes a history column for ThisWeek.
