Primary election filing deadline nears By GARY BUDZAK ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Does your New Year’s resolutions include running for office in Hilliard? If so, you have a few more weeks to file as a candidate. With the May 3 primary looming, the filing deadline is Feb. 2 (90 days prior); and if you’re running as a write-in can-

didate, the filing deadline is Feb. 22, said Ben Piscitelli, Franklin County Board of Elections spokesman. In order to run for office, “you have to be a registered voter in the county and live within the precinct,” Piscitelli said. Next, visit under the candidate services link to create a petition, or visit the board at 280 East Broad Street. After paying a $45

filing fee, you’ll need to collect signatures for your petition. “The requirements are in Hilliard; you have to have a minimum of 50, a maximum of 150 signatures,” Piscitelli said. “If you’re from a minor party, you have to have a minimum of 25 and a maximum of 75. And if you’re an independent, you have to have a minimum of 115 signatures and no more than 345, and

you would file for the general election in November, so you would have to file at 4 p.m. May 2.” Piscitelli said he would advise a potential candidate to get an early start on collecting signatures. “It’s going to take you a while to get valid signatures,” Piscitelli said. “You’re going to have to knock on a lot of doors and get more than you think you need,

because human nature is not every signature is going to be valid – that’s just too difficult for anyone to do. Either a voter thinks they’re registered, or they’re not or maybe they’ve listed their old address. There are a lot of things that can go wrong. You have to be very careful. “You do have to have so many valid See PRIMARY ELECTION, page A2

Harrington BLOCKING A PUNCHER assumes OAPSE leadership position

Farm market to expand in 2011


An expanded Hilliard Farm Market will return this year, running on Tuesdays from June 7 to Aug. 30. Unlike last year, it won’t be held in September. Nathan Painter, one of the sponsors of the farm market, made the announcement at a recent meeting of Destination Hilliard, an organization that promotes events and activities in the city. The Hilliard Farm Market started as a project of the 2009-10 class of Leadership Hilliard, sponsored by the Hilliard Area Chamber of Commerce. “The idea was to bring something to Old Hilliard,” Painter said. “It’s been excellently received. The attendance was well above what any of the farmers or vendors expected.” Painter said Hilliard residents, as well as people in outlying communities, appreciated the fact that the farm market was held on Tuesdays, which gave people a chance to buy local produce on a different day than farmer’s markets in other municipalities. This year’s farm market may expand to include more natural products, ice cream and feature acoustic and vocal music, Painter said. The 2011 Hilliard Farm Market will start a week earlier than last year, but it won’t continue into September because of last year’s poor attendance. “It hit school time, and it just died off and it wasn’t really well attended,” Painter said. But the time of farm market will stay the same: 4 to 7 p.m. “The response from the vendors is they want to keep it at 4 p.m.,” Painter said. “If you’re there, the height of the traffic is 4 to 5, and then it kind of dies, and then it comes back 6 to 7. They don’t want to move it later, because some have to literally get back and feed their animals and get out to the fields.” One of the things Painter hoped for with an expanded farm market was that some community organizations could promote themselves while manning the Leadership Hilliard booth. “It’s an opportunity to allow your organSee MARKET, page A2

On Jan. 1, Mark Harrington became the president of Local 310 of the Ohio Association of Public School Employees (OAPSE), which represents the support staff in the Hilliard City School District. Mark Harrington Gary Heyder, the past president of Local 310, resigned after nine years of service for personal reasons. Harrington was the vice president, and according to OAPSE’s constitution, was appointed to be president after Heyder stepped down. The president’s post will be up for election in 2012. A technology technician for the district, Harrington said he’s been an officer in Local 310 for the past six years. He has three children who attend school in the district, and one who graduated last year. Harrington said Local 310 has roughly 470 members — secretaries, bus drivers, custodians, maintenance men, computer support and aides. The support staff, as well as administration and teachers, agreed to a freeze on salary and step increases for 2011, but by year’s end there will be contract negotiations for 2012 salaries, regardless of whether a proposed levy passes. “The biggest challenge indeed is the levy,” Harrington said. “With a failure in the levy, there is the potential of a reduction in force. We feel as the leadership of Local 310, we are at the bare bones of our staff, of what it takes to make Hilliard City Schools function. I think the district will start to show its wear if indeed the support staff is reduced much more.” Harrington said he would support the levy, although he admits it will be a tough sell.

But we only have time to check so many, so that’s why we put a ceiling on there as well.” Piscitelli said the board will certify that the signatures and addresses of the Hilliard residents are correct according to their voter registration records. In addition to not having enough valid signatures, the board has not certified some petitions during past elections because of mistakes like the candidate forgetting to sign or date the document. “You’re wearing out a lot of shoe leather, you’re ringing a lot of doorbells, and you’ve got make sure all the i’s are dotted and the t’s are crossed.

“We’ve heard from the community about their concerns that in their private sector jobs they haven’t had a raise in four or five years, and they’re worried how hard it is on them to continue to support the schools with more going out and less coming in. “I also believe that there are plenty of people out there that do enjoy the Hilliard City School District. I have heard stories of people who will without a doubt support, but there are those people on the fence who need some more information, or need to be convinced. “I’ve got all sides in it – employee, parent, and taxpayer,” Harrington said. “It’s a scary thing that even if I consider a no vote, what am I doing to myself – am I cutting my throat or am I reducing my pay or hours or am I eliminating myself? It is a struggle even for me, but as the union president, we know that (levy passage is) a must to keep families employed, to keep people’s good self-esteem, to keep people empowered to work.”

ization to get a little bit more exposure,” Painter said. “It would help us just to have more people there. All we’re asking is that while you’re there to answer people’s questions: this vendor’s down here, these are the hours (and) keep an eye on the donation basket for the Hilliard Welfare Council.” Eventually, the market may need to move to another location due to park development, Painter said. Another thing Painter would like to change is having more local vendors. “The one surprise we’ve had is that we approached some of the local farms about doing this (last year), and most of the major farms around here didn’t want anything to do with it.” “The farm markets are very popular,” Destination Hilliard trustee Drew McCartt said to Painter. “Anything we can do to play it up and expand it more, get more business, would be great.”

Norwich hosting health workshop for seniors By GARY BUDZAK

U’s sponsors. “If you miss the first session, you can enter on the second session, but after that, no new people are accepted into the class because a major focus of the class is the peer support and the group dynamic and the sharing, because everybody learns from each other as well in addition to the information that’s presented and discussed.” Acri said the workshop is geared toward senior citizens, but anyone 40 or over who has a chronic condition such as arthritis, asthma, diabetes or heart disease could benefit from the information. “Sometimes people don’t really identify themselves as necessarily having a

People who are sick and tired of being sick and tired will have a chance to learn some healthy habits at a series of workshops starting next week in the Norwich Township Safety Services Building. Healthy U is a free six-session chronic disease self-management workshop that takes place from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Jan. 13, 20, 27 and Feb. 3, 17, 24. “To get the full benefit, you would really want to attend all six,” said program manager Jane Acri of the Central Ohio Area Agency on Aging, one of Healthy

chronic condition, but they’re often things that people have been living with for quite some time,” she said. “We know the complication that can occur out of these, because the doctors can’t fix it all. “It’s usually something that doesn’t really have a cure, and it is something that you need to manage.” The workshop won’t teach people about their condition, Acri said, but how to manage it and their emotions better. “With diabetes, I have had folks that were borderline pre-diabetic or they nudged over to an official diagnosis of diabetes, but with diet and exercise, they got themselves back under that and they’re

able to manage it without any kind of medication.” Healthy U was developed by Stanford University, and it was initially researched with 1,000 people who had gone through the program. “There was follow-up done after folks completed the workshops,” Acri said. “They found that people were able to communicate better with their doctor and they had fewer hospital ER visits, because of the skills that they learned in the workshop to manage their condition better.” Acri said the Ohio Department of Aging also put out a report on the Healthy

U program in 2009 that confirmed Stanford’s findings. “They had more energy and less fatigue, fewer physician visits and hospitalizations,” Acri said. “Anybody’s who’s skeptical, they should really give it a try,” she said, adding that she usually gets positive feedback about Healthy U. One time, it came from a woman who saw her at the grocery store. “She was like, ‘I’m still doing my action plans,’ because there’s this whole goal-setting component to the workshops. It’s pretty powerful.” To register, call 614-645-3866 or email

Nixle: Keeping a local eye on public safety in Norwich By GARY BUDZAK ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Norwich Township Fire Department recently began using a new tool to communicate with residents and those in neighboring communities. Since Nov. 18, both the fire department and the township have been tapping into Nixle, a community information service provider used by police departments and municipal agencies. Residents can sign up for free and get email or text messages from the NTFD on fire safety, road closures, community events and other

information. “Nixle is a first-of-its-kind tool for communities that need to provide critical information to their residents,” said Craig Mitnick, founder and CEO, in a statement. “In today’s world, you have to trust the source of your information. Residents of Norwich Township can rest easy that the local messages they receive are authentic.” “It’s been very reliable with the information, and it’s just what local agencies want to put out,” said fire chief Dave Long. “You worry about getting sales ads and that kind of stuff.

The more it gets used, the more people are going to sign up for it.” The Hilliard Police Department has used Nixle for more than a year. Officer Hyda Slone said they’ve used Nixle to announce things like traffic and crime alerts, self-defense classes and the Safe-

ty Day event last May. “Last fall, we had a bunch of break-ins to cars in Heather Ridge,” Slone said. “One of the officers comes in and says you need to put out a Nixle and tell those folks to quit leaving their stuff in the cars. “I really like it,” she said. “I think it’s a great way to communicate with the general public.” For more information, visit

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 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

Continued from page A4 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. But 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 also offered a motion picture or 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, for the most part, they were absolutely right. Happy New Year.

Academy forming alumni association Continued from page A1 community and the HPD • Expand community understanding of law enforcement, crime prevention, and public safety • Organize and staff community service charitable and educational events • Support police officers’wellbeing and provide benevolent assistance to them and their families. Clark said she hopes all 28 members of last fall’s Citizen Police Academy join the Alumni Association, as well as those attending the next class, Feb. 23-

May 24. At the last day of last year’s inaugural class, women who attended Westerville’s citizen police academy told the Hilliard students how they formed their own alumni association. Officer Hyda Slone said the fledgling association can help the HPD in a number of ways, such as working on alarm permits, the Spirit of Safety Day, D.A.R.E. graduations and helping with future citizen police academies. “We have a shortage of manpower, and there are things we can have citizens help us do a better job so we don’t have pull an

officer off of the street,” Slone said. The Alumni Association was part of what HPD hoped to achieve with the Citizen Police Academy, Slone said, along with giving them a better understanding of law enforcement. She said both the citizens and the police benefit from an alumni association. “Citizens feel like they have ownership in our police department,” she said. “It also reminds our officers why we’re doing the job we do. So many times we deal with bad guys all the time. We forget there are really great peo-

ple in our community, and that’s why we do the job we do – to help protect those wonderful people in our community, and those are the ones we don’t have a lot of contact with. So we’re hoping that through this alumni association, it’s really going to bring that together.” To be a member of the next Hilliard Citizen Police Academy, call Slone at 614-334-2321.

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,

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

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

Undersized Wildcats boys rely on defense By AARON BLANKENSHIP ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Hilliard Davidson High School boys basketball coach Kevin Logsdon said his team will be at a size disadvantage in nearly every game this season. But even though the Wildcats don’t have a dominant player in the post, they won five of their first six contests while giving up an average of only 43.8 points by playing a swarming style of man-to-man defense. Davidson held two recent opponents to fewer than 40 points, as it beat Kil-

bourne 41-35 on Dec. 21 and defeated North Union 41-38 on Dec. 29. “North Union is a Division III school and even they were bigger than we are,” Logsdon said. “We don’t have a 6-(foot)-6 or 6-7 kid like most of our opponents do, but our guards are doing a good job of pressuring the other teams’ guards and making it difficult to feed the ball into the post, and we’re doing a good job of helping each other from the perimeter. When teams do get the ball inside, Kevin Stephenoff, Chris Logsdon, Cole Lawson and Robert Snauwaert

are doing a good job of defending the post, too.” Lacking a consistent scorer in the post, the Wildcats have had to work for open shots on the perimeter. Leading Davidson in scoring average through six games were Logsdon (10.7), Davonte Peterson (10.7), Brandon Gleim (8.8), Lawson (7.3) and Andrew Gronski (6.8). “Davonte and Brandon are good at driving to the basket and making shots or passing the ball to open players on the perimeter,” Chris Logsdon said. “We don’t have a dominant scorer, but

we’ve got a lot of guys who can contribute, which is making us more dangerous offensively.” After losing to Thomas Worthington 40-39 on a shot at the buzzer on Dec. 10, Davidson won its next three games decided by six points or fewer, defeating Tallmadge 59-57 on Dec. 18 before beating Kilbourne and North Union as Logsdon scored the winning points on a 3-pointer with six seconds remaining. “We have confidence we can make plays to win close games,” Chris Logsdon said. “I had never hit a game-win-

ning shot before in my entire career, so it was a great moment. When we drew up the play, I wasn’t nervous.

Confidence growing for Darby boys By SCOTT HENNEN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Darby’s Brennan Hook grabs the ball while being defended by Dublin Jerome’s Ben Nesdore on Dec. 30. The visiting Panthers lost 49-37. They will play host to Westland on Friday.

Brennan Hook knew the beginning of his senior season with the Hilliard Darby High School boys basketball team might have some rough spots. Having a group of inexperienced players and a tough early schedule, the Panthers won only one of their first five games, but Hook believes they gained a confidence boost with their 56-37 win over Lancaster on Dec. 28. “We knew this situation. We knew that we might struggle at the beginning of the year, but now we’re starting to rock and roll,” Hook said. “We have been getting after it in practice and we hope this stretch can help us get back to where we want to be.” Through six games, Darby hadn’t scored in double figures in the first quarter and had a season-low four points in the opening period of a 54-43 loss to Dublin Coffman on Dec. 21. But the Panthers held a 14-7 edge after one quarter against Lancaster and led 29-22 at halftime before breaking the game open in the second half by scoring 27 points and holding the Golden Gales to 15 points. “When you’re not in school, you’re worried about (the players) getting sleep and what they are doing with their free time. It seemed like they came out ready to play (against Lancaster),” coach Brett Norris said. “I was really happy with our defensive effort. We changed things around and went out to pressure

them a little more than we have earlier in the season.” Two days later, Darby lost to Dublin Jerome 49-37, scoring only four points again in the opening quarter. “We had six kids who had never played varsity basketball before this year and they have been maturing every game,” Norris said. “We’re getting better and, as cliché as it sounds, we have been taking things one day at a time to get better.” Hook, a forward, led the team in scoring through seven games, averaging 13.9 points. His brother, junior guard Bryson Hook, was second (7.6), followed by senior point guard Matt Allen (6.4), senior guard Matt Cyrus (4.4) and sophomore forward Nic Baker (4.3). Allen and Baker both had eight 3-pointers. “Brennan has been fantastic for us,” Norris said. “He has been so active in scoring and rebounding. His natural ability and his tenacity have been great for us.” Brennan Hook said his two classmates — Allen and Cyrus — have worked with the younger players to help aid their transition to varsity. “All three seniors know what it takes to be successful and we know how to push each other out there on the court,” Brennan Hook said. “Last year, I was more of a role player and a complementary scorer. Now (the seniors) want to be able to help out the sophomores and get them through their growing pains. See DARBY, page B2


2010: The Year In Review

Off-field tragedy, upsets among top stories Jaguars 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.

Fellow CCL member Watterson also won a state title, beating Akron Buchtel 13-12 in the Division III final.

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 5for-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.”

boys on cusp of jelling By BRAD EMERINE ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Despite winning just two of its first six games, the Hilliard Bradley High School boys basketball team has proven to be much more competitive. In their first season, the Jaguars were 6-8 through 14 games, with seven of the losses being by more than 10 points. Heading into last Wednesday’s game against Delaware, their four losses were by a combined 19 points. “We have competed well and that’s a testament to how well the guys are playing together,” coach Michael Limbird said. “They’ve worked hard and have responded to the coaching. With the exception of the New Albany game, I think we’ve played well enough to win.”

2010: THE YEAR IN REVIEW Continued from page B1


STUNNING UPSETS: The Northland boys basketball team and Gahanna boys soccer team both were ranked No. 1 in the country for much of their respective seasons, but neither was able to defend their respective state championships, or even return to the state tournament. Northland lost to Gahanna 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. 1-ranked 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. “It’s shocking,” said Gahanna senior forward Chris Davis. “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 Hilliard 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


BRADLEY Continued from page B1 The Jaguars lost to New Albany 56-47 on Dec. 7 after opening with a 54-49 loss to Thomas Worthington on Dec. 3. In both contests, they started slow, as Thomas led 21-6 after one quarter and New Albany led 18-7 after the opening period. Bradley responded by beating Franklin Heights 77-67 on Dec. 10 and then defeated Big Walnut 60-41 on Dec. 17 as Trent Weaver had 21 points, A.J. Dixon scored 17 and Evan Bell scored 11. The Jaguars outscored Franklin Heights 48-27 in the second half. They led Big Walnut 22-16 at halftime and outscored the Golden Eagles 24-9 in the third quarter. Bradley then lost close games to Mount Vernon and St. Charles, falling to the Yellow Jackets 4845 on Dec. 21 and to the Cardinals 39-37 on Dec. 30. “In both of those games we had open 3-pointers in the final seconds that would’ve won the games, but we missed them,” Limbird said. “Against Mount Vernon, we were down 46-45 and ran a nice set where Derek Tieman kicked the ball back outside to Dakota Rohrer for a 3-pointer. We had to foul with five seconds left and (Mount Vernon) made both free throws. “Against St. Charles, we had the ball and were down two points with 10 seconds left and Derek had a good look at a 3-pointer. We had our worst shooting game

DARBY Continued from page B1 “A lot of it goes back to practice. I think everyone is always shocked when they play their first varsity game. Everyone has to get used to the quicker pace of the game.” But part of gaining experience is maturing , which means executing and limiting mistakes. “The biggest thing we need to work on is our half-court offense,” Brennan Hook said. “We need to get open and not turn the ball over. We have to get open and be physical with the ball.”

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 title by finishing 7-0 in the OCC-Central Division. “Coming into this year, we weren’t exactly sure how everything was going to pan out and what the kids’ reaction to losing Rico was going to be. There were a multitude of questions about things coming into this year.” Davidson dedicated the 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

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

coach, was the 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 Hackman gets kicked out of the (basketball) game and hands (Hopper’s character) the scorebook and tells him he’s the coach now,” Mampieri said with a wide grin. “It wasn’t anything like that, but (Eric) did a great job.” When Mampieri returned to the 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

Rapid weight loss a concern for competitors By JEREMY STEWART ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Wrestling is different from other high school sports. If an athlete doesn’t make weight, he doesn’t compete. It is the only team sport in which weight, more than skill, determines a position. That’s why one of the most important times on competition day is the weigh-in. The NCAA and high school athletics associations across the country have tried to stamp out the practice of rapid weight loss since collegiate wrestlers Billy Jack Saylor, Joseph LaRosa and Jeff Reese died trying to make weight in 1997. The OHSAA has been heavily involved in the weigh-in process since the 2006-07 wrestling season. Coaches interviewed by ThisWeek unanimously agreed the OHSAA’s weight certification program has been a positive, but they said there are questions about its effectiveness and its fairness to athletes who also compete in a fall sport. “I think the idea of the (program) is good, but it doesn’t eliminate the severe weight cutting,” Reynoldsburg coach Jared Ball said. “They crash early. The idea now is to be at their weight at the beginning (of the season).” Each of the college wrestling deaths came after a period of extreme weight loss. Reese was trying to get down to the 150-pound weight class and had lost a reported 17 pounds in three days. Severely dehydrated, the Michigan wrestler died in the locker room at Crisler Arena in Ann Arbor as he tried to weigh-in. Saylor, a Campbell University wrestler, and LaRosa, who competed at Wisconsin-La Crosse, died under similar circumstances. The OHSAA’s weight certification

Hilliard Davidson senior Nolan Gill (right) battles Mark Martin of Lakewood St. Edward in a first-round match at 135 pounds during the Division I state tournament last season. Gill was listed at 174 pounds as a football player for the Wildcats last fall and his wrestling season was delayed until he could lose weight in order to compete at 140 pounds.

program attempts to eliminate rapid weight loss by establishing a minimum weight at which a wrestler can compete during the season. The minimum weight, called the “alpha weight,” takes into account hydration level and body-fat percentage. Teams typically spend an afternoon during the preseason getting the entire roster certified. Wrestlers undergo a urinalysis to prove they are not dehydrated, and once adequate hydration is established, they have their body-fat percentage determined. If a male wrestler’s body fat is 7 percent or less (12 percent or less for females), he is not allowed to wrestle at a weight class lower than his weight at the time of certification. Wrestlers with more than 7 percent body fat are allowed to lose weight, but only in small weekly amounts determined by the OHSAA’s weight-loss formula. “The only guarantee that you’ll be

allowed to wrestle at a certain weight is if you weigh in at that weight hydrated,” Ready coach Chance Van Gundy said. “If you’re hydrated at 140 (pounds) with 7 percent body fat, you’ll be able to wrestle 140. But if you weigh 140.1, you have to wrestle up.” Since this formula determines where athletes can wrestle once the season starts, Van Gundy meets with prospective team members early in the fall to determine where they might fit in the lineup once the season begins. This helps wrestlers establish a goal weight and they can use the fall to trim down before getting certified, unless they’re playing a fall sport. Getting in shape for wrestling is especially difficult for football players. At the heavier weights, football and wrestling have some shared benefits, but most of the weight classes would be considered small for football players.

No one knows the difference in conditioning philosophy like Jason Hackett, a football player and state champion wrestler for Hamilton Township who graduated in 2003. “Football coaches push size to have bigger, stronger kids,” said Hackett, who now coaches at Hamilton Township’s middle and high schools. “I’d like to see (the hydration test) in the middle of the season. They’ll lose that weight just because they work that hard (in wrestling practice). I loved football and wrestling, but they’re different types of conditioning.” In 2002, Hackett won a Division II state wrestling championship at 171 pounds after he helped the football team make the playoffs. Had the hydration test been in place at that time, Hackett said he wouldn’t have been able to compete at 171. He ended the football season at 205 pounds and needed until January to lose the weight. According to the rules at the time, he had to wrestle half of his matches at his lowest weight to be eligible for the postseason. “It took a lot out of me,” Hackett said of losing the weight. “I really do like how the hydration test is set up. The way I look at it, you might have to bump up a weight, but you’re going to need that strength. You can’t cut weight to where you’re not going to be able to step on the mat.” Hackett also said finding the proper weight class is important. He said moving down in weight can give a wrestler an advantage, because he should have a larger frame and stronger muscles than a competitor who is naturally smaller. Hackett’s success at 171 pounds earned him a scholarship to Arizona State. The need for some to lose weight had some like Pickerington Central coach Jason Allen calling for a later start to the wrestling season. Olentangy coach Matt Hammons wanted


Local squads benefit from holiday tournaments By JEREMY STEWART ThisWeek Community Newspapers

All three Hilliard high school wrestling teams traveled out of town during the holiday break to see where they fit among state-level competition. Bradley competed against top teams from the Southwest District at the Greater Miami Valley Coaches Association Invitational, placing 21st with 68.5 points behind champion St. Paris Graham (330.5). “The holiday tournament is always a good measuring stick at this point in the season to let your wrestlers and your team know where they stand at the district and state level,” coach John Riggs said. “As a team, we placed 21st of 49 teams overall, placing two wrestlers. We had several other wrestlers one match shy of placing. We are back in the practice room working hard in preparation for the league opener this coming week at Mount Vernon.” Andrew Higgins, who was Darby’s lone state qualifier last season, was third at 160 pounds at the GMVCA. He beat Oak Hill’s Ryan Fitzpatrick 7-4 in the third-place match. Austin Johnston was seventh at 135 after beating Sidney’s Mason Calvert 8-4. Bradley plays host to the Porter Memorial Tournament on Saturday. The event, now in its eighth year, features eight teams, including Darby, Grove City, Lancaster, Miamisburg, Olentangy, Teays Valley and Vandalia-Butler. Bradley placed eighth last season with 48.5 points, behind champion Mi-

amisburg (151.5), which edged runner-up Teays Valley (150). Bradley opens its OCC-Capital Division dual schedule today against host Mount Vernon and Watkins Memorial. The Jaguars tied Big Walnut and New Albany for third in the OCC-Capital last season at 4-3, behind Olentangy Orange (7-0) and Mount Vernon (6-1). •Darby had four placers at the Medina Invitational Tournament, which concluded Dec. 29. Leading the Panthers was Sufyan El-Geroushi, who was second at heavyweight. “He’s been a kid that’s been under the radar, but he’s very quick and very smart,” coach Brendan Moody said. “He has a shot at getting to state. It will be interesting. From a state-level perspective, I would look at the Pickerington North kid (Pat Elflein) and the kid from Marysville (Kyle Thirkield). There’s also the kid from Olentangy Liberty (Luke Fleming). I definitely think (El-Geroushi) has a shot.” Darby was 19th at Medina with 68 points as Lakewood St. Edward won (288). Also placing was Tyler Bowens, who was fifth at 171. Cameron Longwell was seventh at 119 and Sam Valenti was eighth at 103. The Panthers open their league dual schedule today against Upper Arlington and Westland. Darby was third in the OCCCentral last season at 5-2, behind champion Dublin Coffman (7-0). “We’re a little bit better of a tournament-style team than a dual-meet team right now,”

Moody said. “We’re going to do some things in practice to learn about how to score the bonus points needed for duals. We have three weeks before we get to Central Crossing (Jan. 20), Dublin Coffman (Jan. 27) and Davidson (Feb. 3). We kind of build up to then.” •Davidson received strong performances from Angelo DiSabato and Chase Delande at the Brecksville-Broadview Heights Holiday Tournament, which concluded Dec. 30. DiSabato was fourth at 119 and Delande was fourth at 145, as the Wildcats placed 23rd with 61 points behind champion Bedford Chanel (191). Returning state qualifiers Nolan Gill and Alex Mickley made their season debuts. “It was both good and bad,” coach Dominic DiSabato said. “I wasn’t real pleased as a team. We talked about seeing more fight out of the guys. It wasn’t our best tournament, but it’s still early for us.” The Wildcats are looking to rebound today when they open their OCC-Central dual schedule against Worthington Kilbourne and Thomas Worthington. Davidson was second in the OCC-Central last year at 6-1.

to level the playing field by having the OHSAA use the same assessor to run the weight certification tests. Perhaps no school in the area deals with the dichotomy of football and wrestling conditioning like Hilliard Davidson. In wrestling, Davidson won the Division I district championship last season and was chosen to represent the Central District at the state duals on Jan. 9. However, three of Davidson’s four state qualifiers last year were members of the football team, which won the Division I state championship in 2009 and made it to a state semifinal this past fall. Had Davidson won its state football semifinal on Nov. 27, wrestling state qualifiers Chase Delande, Nolan Gill and Alex Mickley would have been playing football on Dec. 4, the same day that the wrestling team opened its season. Because he played football at a lighter weight, Delande was able to join the wrestling team for the opener Dec. 4, but Gill and Mickley didn’t make their debuts until Dec. 28. Coach Dominic DiSabato had to put off filing weight certifications until Gill and Mickley were able to reach their target weights. Not only did the pair miss nearly a month of the season, but Davidson also had to postpone a Dec. 16 dual with West Jefferson until Jan. 26. Mickley was listed at 170 pounds on the football roster and is wrestling at 152. Gill was listed at 174 for football and is competing at 140 for wrestling. “My first day back I lost like five pounds, and then the next day it was another five pounds,” Mickley said Dec. 16. “Then the next day I would eat the littlest thing and be right back up. Last week was tough, but this week the weight really started dropping.”

At a glance Below are the recent results and coming schedules for the Bradley, Darby and Davidson wrestling teams: BRADLEY Dec. 28-Dec. 29 — Finished 21st (68.5) at Greater Miami Valley Wrestling Association Invitational, behind champion St. Paris Graham (330.5) *Today — At Watkins Memorial with Mount Vernon Saturday — Porter Memorial Tournament at home *OCC-Capital match DARBY Dec. 28-Dec. 29 — Finished 19th (68) at Medina Invitational Tournament, behind champion Lakewood St. Edward
