Dominion wants to build houses By MICHAEL J. MAURER ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Delaware City Planning Commission on Jan. 5 approved 12 distinct rezoning amendments to allow Dominion Homes to proceed with the Communities at Glenross subdivision on Cheshire Road, in anticipation of a growing housing market in 2011. “We need to move fairly rapidly for this year’s construction season or Dominion is going to have to make some decisions about putting resources in

Weatherby said the village and its employees also saw those cuts. “We had to pay our debts and we had to maintain a level of services that our citizens have grown to expect over the past several years,” Weatherby said. “We have eliminated some positions through attrition.

Delaware County commissioners on Jan. 7 named an interim county prosecutor and interim county recorder. The previous prosecutor, David Yost, was elected Ohio auditor and the previous recorder, Andy Brenner, was elected to the Ohio House 2nd District seat. William Owen will serve as interim county prosecutor before joining Yost later this month in the auditor’s office, and John Whitney will serve as interim county recorder before returning to his commercial printing business. Commissioner Tommy Thompson noted both men have other long-term goals and are serving the county by filling the vacancies temporarily. “It’s great that we have these people of high quality coming in,” and each is familiar with the offices’ operations and staffs, he said. Later this month, the Delaware County Republican Central Committee will name successors to the two unexpired terms of office. Owen spoke to the staff from the prosecutor’s office, along with his mother and other family members, in the commissioners’ meeting room. “I very much want to thank the staff here. It is the best staff I have ever worked with and a remarkable experience,” Owen said. Whitney said he does not expect much in the way of formal action during his brief tenure. “Andy asked me to help him out for the threeweek period,” Whitney said. “He wanted somebody who could fill the office but didn’t want to show favoritism to any of the candidates (for the permanent appointment). I don’t have any political aspirations. I’ll do it for three weeks and then be out.” Because the county buys services from Whitney Ink, Whitney has had to stop his business with the county during his time in office. He is not per-

Sunbury village employees soon will have a defined command hierarchy as village council looks into the roles and expectations for each staff member. Council on Dec. 29 helped draft an organizational chart showing to whom each employee is supposed to report. On Jan. 5, councilman Sean Currie said the chart will help determine “who’s going to be judging the performance of the employees, who’s going to help set goals for those expectations

Delaware City Council wrapped up 2010 business by approving 2-percent pay increases for management and department heads and various part-time and seasonal personnel. Exceptions included police captain pay, which was increased by 4.5 percent and city manager pay, which was excluded from the ordinance and will be addressed in a later separate ordinance, said administrative services director Jackie Walker. “We are proposing to add the positions of assistant fire chief and assistant police chief,” Walker said. “We’re deleting language for the city manager’s pay from the

documents. We’re going to go back to how we had done that a number of years ago where the city manager’s pay is done by separate ordinance.” The city maintains 20 different management pay grades in five steps, with the lowest classification pay ranging from $14.71 per hour at step 1 to $17.19 per hour at step 5, and the highest classification ranging from $31.75 per hour at step 1 to $37.38 at step 5. The part-time and seasonal pay includes five classifications, the lowest ranging from $7.74 per hour at step 1 to $8.70 per hour at step 5, and the highest ranging from $17.76 per hour at step 1 to $20.58 per hour at step 5. Department head pay ranges from $25.03

to $49.94 per hour. The management pay plan calls for the city to pay 8.5 percent toward the state public employee pension fund, with the balance of any payment paid by the employee. The rate for nonunion police and fire employees is 10 percent. Council also approved resolutions authorizing the city manager to enter into agreements that would complete a federal Neighborhood Stabilization Grant program that allowed the demolition of the Delaware Hotel. The remaining funds available are estimated at about $236,000 and $40,000 for administrative costs. The city is formally acting as lead agency in the project, which also includes Delaware County, to demolish 11 dilapidated properties.

Currie said it also might determine if additional employees are needed or whether the village should downsize. “I think that will also go a long way to answer the question of are we providing all of the services that we are required to provide the village. Do we have enough resources to do so and/or do we have enough coverage maybe without a couple of the positions?” Currie said. Village administrator Dave Martin said it’s also important to have an organizational chart so new council members would understand village employees’ specific job responsibilities.

I think Martin said council approved an or-

So one way or another something will have to be done with legislation.” “Once we get those set and established ... we need to communicate to the employees the expectations we now have for them, and then for those people of an authority to verify they are meeting those expectations or exceeding them or not meeting them,” Currie said. “Unfortunately, answers are down the road but I think we are getting on the right track,” Currie said. Council plans to revisit the chart and possibly move on legislation at its next meeting on Jan. 19.

most three years. And we’ve reduced many of our village expenses.” The mayor cited “extreme stress on the village and school district finances” because of declining income and property tax revenues. “These have been tough times and we’ve had to make some very hard decisions to help the village carry on,” he said. Weatherby said he believes 2011 will bring change. “Many of the economic baggage and beliefs that we’ve held as axioms of truth have proven to be no longer valid,” Weatherby said. “It’s my belief that we as an American economy has bottomed out. There are signs of recovering economy both nationally and locally,” he said. “The upcoming year shows increased building permits possible. Our income tax revenue is projected to be higher for 2011 compared to 2010.” Weatherby said Sunbury was also fortunate to receive revenue from lottery winnings to the tune of the nearly $1.35-million. He said developers are contacting the village about future plans and growth. “This recovery will be slow and sporadic but it is happening,” Weatherby said. “Hopefully, we can take lessons learned during this period and build an even better and stronger Sunbury,” he said. Also at the first council meeting of the year, members unanimously approved keeping Tom Hatfield as council president in 2011. This is Hatfield’s fifth year as acting president. Following an executive meeting, council voted to give $500 bonuses to all 26 full-time village employees for 2010 because they didn’t receive any pay raises for the year. Fiscal officer Kathy Belcher, who started training in July, and two other part-time police officers each will receive a prorated bonus.

Continued from page A1 Shawn Leininger reviewed the numerous plat approvals and rezoning necessary to the project, noting the changes approved Wednesday resulted in 13 fewer units than previous approvals. “Essentially what we are doing is trading 75 condominiums for 62 single-families,” Leininger said. The commission also reap-

proved an expired preliminary development plan for the Ravines at Olentangy mixed-use development on Renner Road. The plans were submitted in 2006 and subjected to a lawsuit over conditions imposed by the city. The lawsuit was settled in 2008, but the originally approved plans expired. “It’s really in the city’s best interest to continue the approvals,” Efland said. “There is

no pending development on this site right now. Any future final plans and plats would have to come back through the planning commission and city council for authorization.” The commission also heard an informal presentation of a concept plan by Ohio Wesleyan University for renovations at Stuyvesant Hall that would add 40 bedrooms to the 1930s residence hall.

Christmas and high school: more alike than you think You say, “That’s so high school.” Meaning so yesterday, so unimportant. So over. This brings MARGO me to ChristBARTLETT mas, or rather, the two months leading up to Christmas, when Christmas music and Christmas lights and Christmas television programming and Christmas events and Christmas advertising rain down on the world like … Well, I was going to say “like shrapnel,” but that’s because I was remembering an advertisement I saw years ago that showed an unpleasant-looking woman opening an oven door and peering sternly inside. The headline read something like “They’ll be home for Christmas.” The ad was for oven cleaner. But using the word “shrapnel” to describe all this is too harsh. I actually like Christmas music and lights and events and even some of the television, provided I don’t have to watch most of it. I even like hearing Christmas songs piped over store speakers and have been known to get fairly carried away while singing along to “Santa Baby,” to the point that I have to either press my lips together or go to another part of the store where people don’t know me as that woman who’s singing. Yet. So yes, I like Christmas. Not as much as I did when I was a child, but I like it. I don’t like all the time and energy preparing for it requires, of course, and I don’t like the expense, or the pressure people feel to do it the way they see it done on TV or in magazines. I don’t like my own internal voice, the one that tells me to buy more wrapping paper just in case,

even though I know we have enough left over from last year to wrap up the entire house, or that nudges me into buying another table cloth when we can use our old ones, which already have candle wax marks in the right places. OK, so I don’t like absolutely everything about Christmas. I do like a lot of it, though, and I’m always surprised and chagrined at how quickly it all goes away. But when Christmas is over – you may have noticed this – it’s completely, totally, thoroughly over. By 5 p.m. on Christmas Day, radio stations that have played nothing but Christmas music since Thanksgiving have resumed their regular programming. On Dec. 26, Christmas trees begin appearing on the curbs, next to trash cans stuffed with wrapping paper and electronics boxes. The very air, so recently full of peace on earth, goodwill toward men sorts of messages, is silent. Not silent as in all is calm and all is bright. Just silent. I find myself thinking that I’m glad I didn’t buy more wrapping paper. And to think I thought about buying a new tablecloth! I must have been nuts. In fact, I was nuts – nuts and overworked and, yes, caught up in the wacky but still somehow thrilling spirit of the season. But the season is over now. It’s January, and we’re looking ahead, to Valentine’s Day and tax returns and spring. Christmas? You may as well try to tell about that time somebody poured bubble bath in the high school drinking fountains, or how great it was to be student director of “Our Town.” It’s all so over.

Adam Cairns | ThisWeek

I just realized something important: Christmas is like high school. I don’t mean the birth of Jesus is synonymous with clanging lockers and the smell of steamed hotdogs. I mean … well, look. You know what high school’s like, right? You’re all caught up in that whole world of homework and credits and grade point averages and class rank, not to mention football basketball soccer tennis track golf or maybe band orchestra choir big musical trips to Disney World and then of course you have your student council honor society newspaper yearbook flag corps, not to mention homecoming prom and all the talk talk talk that accompanies these things. Then you graduate, and two days later you walk by the arrangement of certificates, plaques, athletic letters and other random awards that your proud mom has created for your open house and you think, “What’s all that stuff still doing here?” Because high school is behind you now. Behind you, and receding into the distance like a train in reverse. Soon it’ll be a tiny speck, and then you won’t see it at all. Not that you want to see it, because you don’t. Whether you’re going to college or starting a job or joining the service or sitting on the front porch texting people, you know that high school is no longer current. Who cares about how hilarious it was when you filled the softball team’s car wash buckets with Kool-Aid? Who cares about that thrilling moment when the prom court was announced? Who cares who was named valedictorian and who missed it by one one-hundredth of a point? You already know what to say when some doofus – or possibly your mom – brings up that stuff.

Walk in the park

Dining birds put on good show I'm blaming it on the hectic holidays — my walks in the park were pretty limited in December. I went on a number of short hikes at Hogback Ridge Preserve (which happens to be where my office is located), and a longer one at Char-Mar Ridge Preserve, but that was about it. I did, however, take a lot of short walks to and from my backyard bird feeders — thanks to the snowy DeSUE cember we just enjoyed. HAGAN The persistent snow cover made last month an especially good one for bird watchers, because wintering birds flock to backyard feeders when snow envelops their favorite sources of food. In my yard, I saw plenty of birds at the feeders, poking about on the ground, and checking out the seed heads on last summer's coneflowers. I was actually ready for my avian visitors well before the first snowflake flew. I had stocked up on all the favorites: a fruit and

nut mix for cardinals, pine siskins, waxwings, blue jays, wrens and warblers; niger (thistle) for finches and mourning doves; suet cakes for woodpeckers and nuthatches; and black-oil sunflower seeds for everyone. (Bill Thompson, who writes a blog for BirdWatchersDigest. com, calls black-oil sunflower seed the “hamburger of the bird

world,” because virtually every bird likes it. I find that true, but my feeder with nuts and fruits gets emptied first — especially if a flock of blackbirds finds it!) So anyway, I put in plenty of bird food and got my usual crew of dark-eyed juncos, song sparrows, finches and mourning See A WALK IN, page A5

Big Walnut schools

District may bus students with hazardous crossing By BONNIE BUTCHER ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Big Walnut school district officials may resume busing a group of students whose walk to school includes a hazardous crossing at the Miller Drive and U.S. Route 36-state Route 37 intersection. The decision would bus about 120 students north of the intersection, assistant superintendent Gary Barber said in an interview. To save money, the district eliminated busing for students who live within a mile of the school building they’re assigned to attend. Administrators received a number of complaints that the intersection is too dangerous for students to cross. Officials from both the school and the village of Sunbury manned

the intersection to help students cross. They also installed a number of signs, including “no turn on red” signs to make drivers aware that students cross in the area. The district also hired a crossing guard with funds from the Educational Service Center of Central Ohio. Despite those steps, the concern continued, Barber said. “We’ve done everything we feel we can do. We’re not a town that is used to a lot of walkers and we’ve noticed a lot of people are not following the no-right-on-red signs,” Barber said, noting that the only safe solution seems to be returning busing to the students who must cross at that intersection. “We’ve had a lot of concerned folks regarding that area because the speed limit is higher and the

volume of traffic during the morning hours and during our release time is tremendously more than many of our other areas in town,” Barber said. Through letters and phone calls, the district has contacted affected households to see if the students would be interested in using the bus service. Of the 120 students eligible, parents of 38 of the students had expressed interest as of Jan. 6, Barber said. Depending on the number of students who would participate, the district likely would establish three or four group stops. The district would not need to add buses or drivers to accomplish the group pickups. Because routes have been shortened, administrators can send buses back out to pick up the group stops after they

have dropped off other students, Barber said. The plan affects only students attending General Rosecrans Elementary School, 301 S. Miller Drive. Superintendent Steve Mazzi will discuss the plan with the board of education at its next meeting, 7 p.m. Monday, Jan. 10, at the Big Walnut High School Media Center, 555 S. Old 3C Highway, Sun-

bury. If approved, the change would begin with the new grading period, Tuesday, Jan. 18, Barber said. Barber said the district also has heard from some parents concerned because they aren’t getting door-to-door bus service, as in the past. The district is not likely to change the decision to have group stops in those areas. That meas-

That is something we’re probably not going to be able to do,” Barber said. “The (US Route 36-37) crossing was one area we’re targeting. It is a unique intersection with the amount of trucks and vehicles that aren’t from our town and don’t know ... students (are) crossing.”

Besides juncos, some of the recent winter visitors at Hogback and at Deer Haven Preserve have been white-crowned and white-throated sparrows, pine siskins, redpolls and purple finches. Many bird watchers don't just watch. They collect data that helps in bird population and migration studies. One way to do that is to become a member of Project FeederWatch, a project of the Cornell University Lab of Ornithology. All it takes is a bird feeder, the right kind of bird food (black oil sunflower seeds and white millet are good choices), water for the birds, a little time to observe, and $15 for registration and materials. The data collected by counting at a given time on two days every other week is used by scientists to study the movements of winter bird populations and the long-term trends in bird distribution and abundance. Anyone can join Project FeederWatch. All the details are available at www.birds.cornell.edu. Now that the holidays are over, I'll be getting back out on the trails. But I won't forget that, of the paths I follow this winter, one of the most pleasing is the short one I'll follow to the feeders in my own yard.

doves. All is usually peaceful and calm, but you never know what will happen at the bird feeders — seriously! Just when I had settled into watching a few goldfinches (in their winter olive-drab feathers) pick away at thistle seed, a flash of bright blue and white signaled the arrival of a pushy blue jay. Emitting a loud squawk, he flew directly into the branches of a large spruce — and out flew another jay from the other side. The cacophony and the rush of the jays sent all the other birds flying away, and just in time. For next came a small hawk, perching on my wood pile, awaiting a tasty morsel. Evidently, he's familiar with my feeders, too. I've seen hawks sit, motionless, on my wood pile for long periods of time when birds are fledging. But on this day, my hawk impatiently moved on after a moment or so, and the other birds gradually ventured back. It always amuses me that the smallest birds are the first to return after the threat is over. A finch came back first, followed by a few more, and then the bigger mourning doves reappeared. My bird watching is not limited to my yard; like many park visitors, I spend some time watching the feeders here at Hogback, in the hopes of spotting something out of the ordinary.

Genoa plans no pay raises for 2011 By BONNIE BUTCHER ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Genoa Township trustees held their re-organization meeting Jan. 6, rehiring all staff members and giving wage increases to none. “There are no increases in these (resolutions to rehire),” said trustee Barbara Lewis. However, the township is in contract negotiations with its police and fire department unions, whose contracts expired Dec. 31. The trustees rehired 32 police department employees; eight maintenance employees; 22 full-time and seven part-

time fire department employees; and 10 full-time and two part-time employees for administration, building and grounds, fiscal office, and zoning. Trustees also: • Elected Rick Carfagna as chair and Karl Gebhardt as vice chair of the board. • Approved 87.21 miles of roadway under the township’s maintenance responsibility. Roadway in 2010 totaled 86.97 miles. • Approved elected official compensation which is set by state law and based on the township budget. The fiscal officer receives $28,176 annually. Trustees each receive $20,568 annually. • Adopted employment policies of a

minimum wage of $7.40 per hour and a maximum wage of $44.71 per hour. • Approved the 2011 road maintenance program estimated to cost $450,000. • Approved providing health insurance with vision, dental, life and disability benefits for all full-time employees and part-time employees working at least 1,500 hours per year. • Scheduled trustee meetings at 7 p.m. the first and third Thursdays of the month. During June, July, August and November the board will meet only on the first Thursday. Trustees also changed the Feb. 17 meeting to Tuesday, Feb. 15 and changed the two March meetings to

March 10 and 24, the second and fourth Thursdays. • Waived a $400 fee for a zoning application that was withdrawn. Applicant Ron Thomas is seeking substitution of a non-conforming use for a counter top fabrication business where a sheet metal manufacturing plant previously operated as a legal non-conforming use. The application will be heard by the board of zoning appeals at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 25, at the township hall, 5111 S. Old 3C Highway, Westerville. • Declared a garage on Red Bank Road to be “dangerous” according to township code. The building is old and has missing doors, making it accessible to tres-

The Delaware General Health District has arranged for a mobile mammography unit to visit Delaware County six times in 2011. The Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute’s mobile mammography screening unit will visit Buehler’s Food Market in Delaware on Feb. 17, July 5, Oct. 20 and Dec. 20, 2011. The unit will visit the Center for Older Adults of Delaware County on April 6 and Aug. 24. Those who receive mammograms must have a primary care physician to interpret the results. The screening process is recommended annually for women age 40 and older. Mammograms are performed in privacy by female technologists and are interpreted by board-certified radiologists. The process takes about 10 minutes. Medicare and most insurance plans cover the cost. If insurance is not available, call the health district for assistance. Women without insurance who wish to pay privately will need to provide $95 at the time of their appointment. For appointments or for more information, call the health district at (740) 203-2040.

Hayes Roundup

Boys basketball team ready for tough stretch By BRAD EMERINE ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Delaware Hayes High School boys basketball team has entered the most difficult portion of its schedule. After beating Hilliard Bradley 7259 last Wednesday, the Pacers began the tough stretch of games last Friday against New Albany. The Eagles entered the game unbeaten through seven contests, including five in the OCCCapital Division. On Friday, Delaware will play at Olentangy Orange, which was 6-2 overall before last Friday. The next day, the Pacers play host to non-league opponent Gahanna, which was 8-0 and reached a Division I state semifinal last season. After a reprieve against visiting Franklin Heights on Jan. 21, the Pacers will play at Mount Vernon on Jan. 25. Franklin Heights was winless through nine games, but Mount Vernon was unbeaten through eight. “We’ve talked about this part of the schedule with the players,” coach Jordan Blackburn said. “We toughened our non-league schedule to prepare for the postseason. We wanted to play some of the best teams in central Ohio that we could. When you see Gahanna,

Olentangy Liberty, Reynoldsburg and Pickerington Central on the schedule, you understand that we’re tying to improve ourselves by playing those teams.” The five-game stretch comes against teams that were a combined 29-11 (292 not including Franklin Heights). New Albany and Mount Vernon led the league at 5-0 before last Friday, with Delaware third at 4-1. Orange was 3-2. “Orange got some strong transfers from Worthington Christian (5-foot10 guard Matt Kurelic) and Dublin Coffman (6-3 forward Josh Wintermantel), plus their j.v. team was 20-0 last season,” Blackburn said. “So while they lost some great seniors, they are still a very good team and program.” Gahanna is led by fourth-year starter Stevie Taylor, an Ohio University signee who has been scoring 18 points per game. Against Bradley, Matt Bingaya contributed 27 points, 13 rebounds, three assists, three steals and three blocked shots. Mike Wells had 24 points with five assists and seven steals, and Jacob Bosiokovic added 10 points, seven rebounds and three blocked shots. “We’ve been challenging (Bosiokovic) to be more of an offensive

threat and to play with a sense of urgency and he really stepped it up,” Blackburn said. “He always plays great defense, but we want him to be more of an offensive force on the blocks. “He plays smart and can shoot the 10- to 15-foot jumpers, but we want him to be aggressive with his moves to the basket and his offensive rebounding. We need a third person to

help Bingaya and Wells in the scoring column and he could be that player.” Bingaya was averaging 23 points and 9.9 rebounds per game and was shooting 62.5 percent from the floor (60-for-96) and 92.5 percent from the line (37-for-40) through nine games. He was 11-for-11 from the line against Bradley. Wells was averaging 18.4 points and

4.6 assists. He was 57-for-106 from the field (53.8 percent) and 45-for-60 from the line (75 percent). Bosiokovic was averaging 6.9 rebounds. “We’ve gotten good play throughout the lineup at times,” Blackburn said. “Keith Butts and Chase Pennington See PACERS, page B2

Big Walnut Roundup

Shooting troubles continue to hound boys team By PATRICK DOLAN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Big Walnut High School boys basketball coach Mike DeLaney hopes it’s just a matter of time until his team’s shots start falling. The Golden Eagles were 2-5 overall and 1-4 in the OCC-Capital Division before playing Mount Vernon last Friday. They headed into the game on a fourgame losing streak, including a 39-35 loss to New Albany last Monday. “I think we’re getting better, but we’re really struggling with our shooting,” DeLaney said. “We’re shooting close to 30 percent over the last five games. We’re practicing very well and we played well against New Albany and had a chance late in the game to tie it but missed the shot. We’re doing a good job moving the ball and I’m happy with the shots we’re getting. We’re just not knocking them down.” Big Walnut held New Albany to 11 field goals but made only 10. “We’re playing good defense against quality teams repeatedly but then not scoring at the other end,” DeLaney said. “We need to knock down shots.” Junior guard Tyler Beam was leading the team in scoring through seven games, averaging 13.0 points. Junior forward Seth Wandling was second (8.4), followed by senior forward Joel Craig (7.0), sophomore forward Seth Myers (6.9) and junior guard Grant Beam (6.0), who

missed the first three games with a toe injury. Tyler Beam, who was named second-team all-OCC-Capital and honorable mention all-district in Division II last season, scored most of his points in two games, as he had 31 in a 62-49 win over Licking Heights on Dec. 14 and 26 in a 72-48 win

over Watkins Memorial in the season opener on Dec. 7. The only other game in which he scored in double figures was against New Albany, when he led the team with 10 points. “Teams are focusing on taking him away,” DeLaney said. “That’s hurt us. We’ve talked to the kids about needing others to

step up.” Considering that no OCCCapital champion has had more than three losses since Big Walnut joined the league in the 1997-98 season, chances are the Golden Eagles will have to wait at least another season to win their first OCC title. As a result, Big Walnut’s primary focus is

on improving, not the league championship. “The league’s as good as it’s been in a long time,” DeLaney said. “I think that will show come tournament time. We’re just trying to get better day to day. We’re just worrying about ourselves.” •According to wrestling coach

Luke Moore, Jason Griffith was ranked 15th at heavyweight in the preseason Division II state rankings. So far, the junior seems to be living up to that billing. A district qualifier last season, Griffith went 5-0 at the Marion Harding Classic on Dec. 2829 to win his weight class. He won four matches by pin and defeated Bellefontaine’s Paul Shough 1-0 in a semifinal. Shough was 14-2 entering the match. “He pinned his way through the tournament,” Moore said of Griffith, who is 16-1 this season. “He wrestled real tough. He’s beat some good kids. We’re trying to keep him rolling.” The Golden Eagles’ next highest finisher at the Marion Harding Classic was junior Aaron Gase, who placed third at 145 pounds. He lost his first match, falling 7-3 to Westerville South’s Logan Michel, but won his final six, including five on the tournament’s second day. Among his victories on the second day was a 7-2 win over Michel. “Going through the consolation bracket (to place third) is a tough thing to do,” Moore said. Also placing in the top eight at the Marion Harding Classic were freshman Alec Eisnnicher at 135 (sixth) and sophomore Brant Weiss at 215 (eighth). Both went 3-3. “Two of Alec’s losses were real close,” Moore said. “Being a freshman and going to a tournaSee EAGLES, page B2

PACERS gave us excellent minutes off the bench (against Bradley). They played fabulous defense ... plus on offense they got the ball to our scorers in scoring positions. “Troy Decker and Joe Weirtz have been doing well with defensive awareness and execution and they’re our vocal leaders in locating shooters, which is an area where we’ve made incremental improvements. We’ve also made much-needed strides in our zone offense.” The Pacers lost to Olentangy Liberty 41-40 in the Larry Eberst Classic on Dec. 29, despite 16 points, 11 rebounds and three steals from Bingaya. Wells added 16 points, three steals and three assists. •The girls basketball team is having trouble starting games. Last Wednesday, for the third consecutive game, the Pacers fell behind by double digits in the first quarter. Although they were able to survive the slow starts in the first two situations, they had no such luck against Hilliard Bradley and lost 72-41. “We need to use our warmup time to get into some type of flow or something,” coach Erin Margraf said. “We had a good game plan, but we just were flatfooted. We didn’t focus, we didn’t execute the game plan and just couldn’t get in a flow.” The Jaguars led 26-8 after one quarter. “They beat us in transition, they made four of their five 3pointers in the first quarter and we had a mental letdown after that,” Margraf said. “We overcame slow starts to beat Marysville (64-56 on Dec. 28) and Lancaster (46-39 on Dec. 30), but we knew we couldn’t do that against (Bradley) and that’s exactly what we did. We lacked discipline and effort in the first quarter.” A point of contention for Margraf was that the Pacers had a size advantage against the Jaguars but got only one rebound in the first quarter.
