Village: No estate tax, no problem By LORI WINCE ThisWeek Community Newspapers Some communities in central Ohio are scrambling to patch holes in their budgets in case the state legislature repeals the estate tax. But, local officials say, New Albany is not one of them. “It really does depend on the community,” said Scott McAfee, commu-

nications director for New Albany. “A community like Upper Arlington is going to be greatly impacted. I think they get in excess of seven figures a year. … In 2010, we budgeted $100,000 and actually didn’t get any.” In New Albany, even though several residents have estates with estimated high taxable values, the village typically does not count on large revenues from the estate taxes.

“The 2011 budget for estate tax revenues is zero,” McAfee said. “It’s not zero because we necessarily expected the state get rid of it; it’s zero because our revenues were zero in 2010 and we figured not to assume anything for 2011. “If you go back, we’ve budgeted around $100,000 in past and have been somewhat close to that (in estate tax revenues). But it’s never been a big revenue generating thing for New Albany.”

Commonly known as the “death tax,” the estate tax was enacted in 1968, according to information from the Ohio Department of Taxation. Under current law, when a state resident dies and his or her estate has a taxable value of more than $338,333 and less than $500,000, a 6-percent tax is owed. Estates with a taxable value of more than $500,000 are taxed at 7 percent. Estates with a taxable value

under $338,333 are exempt from paying the tax. The estate tax is paid to the treasurer of the county where the resident lived. Local governments share the tax, with municipalities and townships receiving 80 percent and the state receiving 20 percent. Ohio’s estate tax generated $333.8See ESTATE TAX, page A3

FRRC eyes financial profiles of similar districts By LORI WINCE ThisWeek Community Newspapers Members of the financial review and reporting committee (FRRC) learned Jan. 18 that while the New Albany-Plain Local School District’s operational costs do not appear out of line compared to other districts, the district still can look to save money in the future. The FRRC heard a report from its consultants that conducted an external evaluation of the district’s finances. According to K-12 Business Consulting Inc. of Dublin, “while the district does appear to be well managed and efficient in the comparison data, any organization can do better and tighten operations.” Jeff Warner, the district’s communications director, said the FRRC reviewed the report and will continue their review at the committee’s next meeting. Some areas the consultants suggested for cost savings included: increasing student to teacher ratios; reducing or “holding the line on average costs for certified and classified employee wages;” reducing administrative costs to comparison group averages; reducing building operating costs to an average of the district’s peer groups; and increasing transportation efficiency. The report also identified several areas where the district is receiving “a positive return on investment for expenditures.” According to the report, these included: general fund projections and unreserved fund balance management; revenue over expenditures with positive cash contribution to ending unreserved cash balance; cost of per-pupil management;

William Barker, a Thomas Jefferson impersonator for Colonial Williamsburg in Virginia, speaks and answers questions in character for Jim Morgan’s eighth-grade class at New Albany Middle School on Jan. 13. He was part of the McCoy Lecture Series conducted by Ed Chappell, director of architectural and archaeological research with the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation and, in addition to the formal lecture, appeared at the middle school, New Albany High School and several other central Ohio schools and organizations last week.

‘Jefferson’ pays visit to local schools By LORI WINCE ThisWeek Community Newspapers Local students received a detailed United States history lesson last week from an unlikely source — one of the nation’s Founding Fathers, Thomas Jefferson. William Barker, who impersonates the third president of the United States at Colonial Williamsburg in Virginia, visited the district campus and spoke to students in character while he was in New Albany as part of an adult lec-

ture series at the Jeanne B. McCoy Community Center for the Arts. Barker and Ed Chappell, director of architectural and archaeological research with the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, kicked off the series with a program that documented similarities between one of the earliest examples of a planned community — Williamsburg, Va. — and the modern principles of planning at work in New Albany. The New Albany Community Foundation organized the McCoy Lecture Series, which will feature more guest speakers each of the next three months.

Chappell and Barker’s program included the impersonator’s visits to local schools. Taking Jefferson’s persona, Barker taught everything from how the United States established individual rights and freedoms and established its independence to different aspects of colonial culture. During a visit to New Albany Middle School Jan. 13, he began his presentation by explaining how people dressed and behaved during the late 18th century and early 19th century.

NAHS students receive award for work with computers

Resident appointed to state board of education

By LORI WINCE ThisWeek Community Newspapers They don’t fit the traditional stereotype, but New Albany High School senior Hayley Montgomery and junior Katherine Miller are self-professed computer geeks. “I bounce around in glitter on the football field and can put a hard drive in a computer,” Montgomery joked, noting she was captain of the drill team and a member of the Digital Network Assistants (DNA) program. Students in the DNA program spend all summer rebuilding district computers so the new machines are ready for students, teachers and administrators the first day of school. Miller said her foray into computer technology is more natural. She claims to be a “more traSee NAHS STUDENTS, page A3

Gov.-elect John Kasich selected another New Albany to serve the state by appointing C. Todd Jones to the state board of education Jan. 18. “The state board is the policy-making body for K-12 education,” Jones said. “I think this is a valuable opportunity to improve K-12 education in the state of Ohio.” Jones is the president and general counsel of the Association on Independent Colleges and Universities of Ohio (AICUO), a position he has held since 2005.

cost of state standards met; general fund expenditures related to combined wages and benefits; managing increased student enrollment and academic excellence; controlling student-toteacher ratios and controlling health care costs as a percentage of wages. “There were some areas where savings or efficiencies might be considered, but overall in costs per pupil and cost per state standard met, the district was not out of line in costs when compared to both the Ohio Department of Education Comparison Group data and with peer districts in Franklin County,” the report said. Warner said the FRRC is asking the district to use resources in a nontraditional manner to operate more efficiently. For an external evaluation, K-12 Business Consulting was hired to help members understand how the district compares to other districts in Franklin County and other districts identified by the state as being similar to New Albany. An internal review of financial operations also is being completed by district officials. Warner said the committee is expected to review the internal review next month. During the Jan. 18 meeting, the committee also welcomed new member Parag Patel, who replaced Lesa Shoemaker, and discussed the role of the board

that, he worked in President George W. Bush’s administration as a staff attorney on the House Committee on Education and the Workforce. He was the chief staff negotiator on the 1997 amendments to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act and helped develop legislation that was enacted as the Higher Education Act Amendments of 1998, according to his biography on the AICUO website. He was born in Los Angeles and was educated at the University of Denver, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration and a law degree, and Georgetown University Law Center, where he received his master of laws degree. He has been a resident of New Albany for the last six years since he moved to Ohio from Washington, D.C. Jones was one of five Kasich appointed to the state board of education, joining Tess Elshoff, Joseph L. Farmer, Thomas W. Gunlock and Dennis Shelton. Jones’ appointment is effective immediately and he will fill a vacated seat for a term ending Dec. 31, 2012.

The New Albany-Plain Local school board on Jan. 6 appointed Cici Fellows to represent the district on the Jeanne B. McCoy Community Center for the Arts board of directors and Parag Patel to the district’s financial review and reporting committee. Fellows will replace Marcy Schaffir, who resigned in June. The district and three other stakeholder groups that helped build the McCoy center each have three appointees on the arts board. Ted DeDee, executive director of the McCoy center, said the other three groups are the village of New Albany, Plain Township and the New Albany Community Foundation. The 12 appointees choose the final three members of the 15member board. Patel will replace Lesa Shoemaker on the financial review and reporting committee, which includes five community members. Current members are Phil Derrow, Dave Demers, Chris Luffler, Dave Maul and Patel. Also on the committee are school board members Laura Kohler and Cheri Lehmann, district treasurer Brian Ramsay, director of business operations Ken Stark, superintendent April Domine and three union representatives from the district’s two labor organizations. According to the district, the committee has been charged with “sharing business and financial best practices from the private and public sectors, reviewing financial forecasts and audit results, reviewing and providing feedback regarding expenditure practices, reviewing schedules and amounts for levies, and reviewing and making recommendations regarding financial information that may impact the district’s ability to meet stated educational philosophies and goals.” — Lori Wince

Jones said the five new appointees will join three members appointed by Ted Strickland, the previous govC. Todd Jones ernor. The 19member board, which creates policy and makes recommendations for K-12 education in Ohio, also has 11 elected members. Jones said he assisted with Kasich’s transition to governor and was part of the governor-elect’s campaign. He said when he was asked to serve on the state board of education, he was glad to continue his work in making education policy. Jones is the second resident in as many weeks to receive an appointment by Kasich. Former state Sen. David Goodman was appointed director of the Ohio Department of Commerce Jan. 8.

NAHS STUDENTS Continued from page A1 ditional nerd” who is on the school’s trivia team and whose mother works in information technology. Both girls are helping get more female students interested in computers, which recently earned them recognition by the National Center for Women and Information Technology (NCWIT). Miller and Montgomery are two of 10 girls in the sate to receive the NCWIT Award for Aspirations in Computing, “which honors young women at the high school level for their computingrelated achievements and interests,” said teacher David Herman. The two will receive their awards April 2 at a location yet to be announced. They will receive engraved awards for their homes and school, as well as prizes donated by local sponsors. This is the first time Ohio has had its own NCWIT award and Montgomery and Miller are the first NAHS students to receive the honor. Award winners must possess “computing and IT aptitude and leadership ability,” as well as a good academic history and plans to study a related career in college, Herman said. Herman said submitted their names for consideration. In addition to detailing their history of working with information technology, the girls completed three essays describing how they have used their knowledge to influence their community. Montgomery wrote about working in the DNA program each summer for the past three years and rebuilding 4,000 computers. Miller, who joined the DNA program last summer, also referenced the program. “It gave me a sense of having a tangible legacy,” she said. “There’s a sticker on every computer in the district — every computer in the district is now built by a DNA.” The NCWIT is a nonprofit group formed in 2004 that includes more than 250 corporations, academic institutions and government agencies working to increase the participation of girls and women in the fields of computer science and information technology, according to the organization’s website. The website also lists several statistics that track the participation of female students in computer-science courses and activities. For example, in 2008, although women earned 57 percent of all the undergraduate degrees in the United States, they earned only 18 percent of all computer and information-sciences undergraduate degrees. While the NCWIT does say those numbers are rising, Miller and Montgomery said they have seen firsthand evidence. When she first applied to the DNA program three years ago, Montgomery said, four girls were

in the program. Last summer, in her third year of work, about half were girls. “I think they can be afraid to put themselves out there because it’s such a male-dominated field,” Miller said. “It’s the fear of rejection that keeps you from going after it.” Both girls said they put their fears aside and are glad they did. “The best advice I can give is that you can’t let yourself be afraid that you won’t be good enough,” Miller said. “They classes are there and the job is there for you.” Montgomery’s interest in technology led her to show local senior citizens how to access e-mail as her senior seminar project, which is a requirement for graduation from NAHS. She wants to combine her love

of teaching and technology when she goes to college this fall. She hopes to study to become a technology teacher and said she already has been accepted to two colleges: Marietta College and Ohio Wesleyan University. Miller, too, hopes to pursue a career involving computer technology. Her experience in a robotics class at NAHS has her interested in studying chemical or mechanical engineering when she applies to colleges next year. “These are two of New Albany’s finest,” said Jon Stonebraker, head of New Albany’s technology department. “They are beyond amazing in their work ethic and technical competence. They are two young ladies of amazing character.”

Continued from page A1 million in revenue in fiscal year 2009, according to information from the department of taxation, and $269.4-million of that went to local governments. House Bill 3, which was recently introduced and has been assigned to the House Ways and Means Committee, would stop collections of the estate tax after Jan. 1, 2011, by making the bill retroactive to that date. State Rep. Jay Hottinger (R-Newark), who co-sponsored the legislation with Assistant House Majority Cheryl Grossman (R-Grove City), said for years the tax has been a heavy burden on people who inherit an estate and has caused many people who own property to move out of state as they age so their families will not have to deal with the tax. “I believe this is the most unfair, egregious tax and it double- and triple-taxes people,” Hottinger said.

Ohio is one of only 20 states with an estate tax. Most do not require people to pay it unless the estate is valued at $1-million or more, Hottinger said. Ohio currently has the lowest estate tax exemption in the country. The average exemption amount for other states that have an estate tax is approximately $1.7-million. Hottinger said the reason the legislation is requested to stop the estate tax is because local governments are “unjustly benefitting” from it. “I would argue that betting on how many people will die in your jurisdiction is not sound budgeting,” he said. Also, Hottinger said, estates for residents who died in 2009 and 2010 are still going through probate court to be settled, so governments will continue to receive those revenues when the cases are settled. “This is a matter of fairness,” he said.

Continued from page A1 He then described the Native Americans of that time and how they prompted early leaders to recognize people with different beliefs and customs. “They (the Native Americans) would walk up with their hands up and would take your hand like that, shaking hands,” Barker said. He asked the students why the Native Americans would have held their hands up and a student correctly answered: “To show they are not carrying a weapon.” Barker said the greeting was as good as any proper greeting from an English gentleman. The United States was formed by people seeking many different types of freedom, Barker said. He explained that in England, the eldest son inherited the father’s property and wealth, which meant if there was a second son or a daughter, those siblings would not receive part of the estate. The second son could hope his brother would hire him to manage the estate, he could marry a wealthy woman who had no brothers and therefore could inherit his wife’s fortune or he could become an apprentice and learn a trade to earn a living. Barker said because of that situation, many of the “second sons” and daughters who couldn’t inherit property or wealth came to the new country to make a new life for themselves. The same went for education. The eldest son was sent to school and other siblings, if the family was wealthy enough, could be tutored at home. Poor people could not afford an education. Barker said the United States was founded with a principle that education should be for all and he pointed around the room at the students, saying that principle is being fulfilled. Barker also spoke about the incorporation of immigrants into the new nation. “We determined that people’s rights cannot belong to one nation or one particular people,” he said. “Rights are within you. They are created by nature and nature’s God. They are in you from birth and can’t be sold and can’t be bought.” On the topic of slavery, Barker said Jefferson kept slaves himself and that their existence contributed to the discussion of freedom, rights and a free nation. As part of the program, Barker took questions from several students and responded in character. Barker was asked about Jefferson’s siblings and he told the students he was one of 10 children. He lost two of his six sisters and two of his three brothers during his lifetime. He also was asked if Jefferson was ever put on trial. Barker said he was not, but, he said, the British put a price on his head and that of Patrick Henry. He narrowly escaped capture after being warned by a neighbor and evacuating his family from his home, Monticello. Barker answered another question by saying it took Jefferson three days and four sheets of paper to complete the first draft

District, Colonial Williamsburg could forge partnership By LORI WINCE ThisWeek Community Newspapers Colonial Williamsburg officials who visited New Albany last week said they are anticipating new educational relationships with the village. “We’re hoping to build a relationship with New Albany, on an educational level with adult programs as well,” said Albert Louer, director of principal gifts for the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation. “We see the opportunity to extend our mission through all kinds of programs.” Louer was in New Albany as part of an adult lecture series at the Jeanne B. McCoy Community Center for the Arts. The McCoy Lecture Series was sponsored by the New Albany Community Foundation, Abercrombie & Fitch, Lynne and Martyn Redgrave, Lance White and family and the Ryan family. Ed Chappell, director of architectural and archaeological research with the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, and special guest William Barker, a Thomas Jefferson impersonator, kicked off the series Jan. 11 with a program that documented similarities between one of the earliest examples of a planned community — Williamsburg, Va. — and the modern principles of planning at work in New Albany, said Ted DeDee, executive director of the McCoy center. Despite the snowy weather that evening, there was standing room only at the lecture, DeDee said. As part of the program, Barker visited several local schools and organizations in character. These included New Albany High School, New Albany Middle School, the Wellington School in Columbus, Greensview Elementary School in Upper Arlington, the Ohio Historical Society, the New Albany Country Club and St. Paul Parish School in Westerville. Louer said New Albany could provide a perfect combination for programs like those put on by Chappell and Barker because of the school system and the McCoy center, which he called “a great venue.” Jeff Rodek, a New Albany resident who is a member of the Colonial Williamsburg’s President’s Council and was instrumental in booking the program, said there is an opportunity for an educational partnership. Colonial Williamsburg has developed electronic programs for schools to bring the history lectures available there directly to classrooms, he said. Louer said an entire digital American history curriculum is scheduled to be released next year. He said he hopes Colonial Williamsburg could recruit at least one teacher from New Albany to participate in the teacher institutes and residency programs in Virginia. of the Declaration of Independence, which went through three more drafts and review by the Continental Congress and its committee before being sent to a printer. He said, oddly enough, the King George III read the Declaration of Independence in a newspaper. An American newspaper taken to Ireland printed the document, which was reprinted in an Irish newspaper that ended up at the king’s court. Another question involved his Southern accent. A teacher asked how quickly the British accents faded from the new Americans’ speech. Barker said as generations were born in America, they picked up variations of English as spoken around them and the British accent slowly faded away. Several New Albany Middle School students and teachers said they learned much from the presentation. Eighth-grader Anna Wolfe said she was surprised by some of the stories Jefferson told.

“He gave us a lot of background that we never would have known,” she said. “He told us a lot of little details, things that you would never expect to be in a history class.” Gabe Heselton, an eighth-grade American history teacher, said Barker’s appearance was a special opportunity. “It makes it really an active learning experience for the students, more authentic,” he said. Barker said he was pleased with the student’s interaction throughout his visit and was impressed many could answer his questions about history. He visited several other area schools and organizations, including New Albany High School, the Wellington School in Columbus, Greensview Elementary School in Upper Arlington, the Ohio Historical Society, the New Albany Country Club and St. Paul Parish School in Westerville. He also made a brief appearance at Starbucks in New Albany.

In brief Council appoints president pro tempore New Albany Village Council appointed Colleen Briscoe as president pro tempore at its Jan. 11 organizational meeting. Council meetings are run by Mayor Nancy Ferguson. The president pro tempore runs the meetings in the mayor’s absence. Council also agreed to keep its meeting dates on the first and third Tuesdays of each month, but members agreed to change the meeting start time from 6:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. Meetings on dates that fall on holidays will be subject to change. Council has slated a workshop Jan. 25 to discuss funding for spe-


cial events, but no decisions or voting can take place during a workshop. Scott McAfee, the village’s communications director, said there would not be another regular council meeting this month. The next regular meeting will be at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 1, at Village Hall, 99 W. Main St. — Lori Wince

New Albany Village Council at its regular meeting Jan. 11 passed an ordinance to adopt a new fee schedule. It was passed as an emergency, making it effective once signed that evening. See IN BRIEF, page A5

Village council would then adopt a resolution accepting the city status if the census certifies the population has exceeded 5,000 residents. — Lori Wince

Netotian rolls first 300 game for Rams There are magic numbers in every sport. These are numbers that define great achievement in that particular endeavor. As most of us know, 300 is the magic number in bowling. It’s a perfect game, all strikes. When it is done, it is etched in one’s sports storybook forever. For Whitehall senior LARRY Nick Netotian, LARSON magic time came on Dec. 10 at Holiday Lanes in a match against Eastmoor Academy. For the first time in his young life, Netotian knocked down all the pins on his first throw every frame and nailed down his first 300 game. “It is what you dream of and you shoot for from the time you start bowling,” said Netotian, who is averaging 222.6 a game for the Rams. “My highest before was a 279. At the beginning of my perfect game I felt pretty good, but it wasn’t really anything special until after the eighth frame when I knew the possibilities that were ahead. “I got nervous and then this crowd formed behind me, which By Tim Norman/ThisWeek added to the pressure.

Committee proposes new factors for divisions By JARROD ULREY ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Including the state football championships won by Hartley and Watterson, non-public schools won five of the six state football titles and 19 of the 27 total state team championships awarded by the Ohio High School Athletic Association during the 2010 fall season. If the OHSAA has its way, it could be tougher in the future for non-public schools — which comprise just 12 percent of the OHSAA’s more than 800 members — to dominate at such a high level. On Jan. 13, the organization’s Board of Directors unanimously placed a new bylaw up for vote based on recommendations from the OHSAA’s Competitive Balance Committee that would be the first step toward chang-

ing how schools are assigned to tournament divisions. The proposed new bylaw, which initially would be instituted for football, boys and girls soccer and girls volleyball in the fall, boys and girls basketball in the winter, and baseball and softball in the spring, will be voted on by OHSAA member schools in May. The proposal states that each school will be placed into tournament divisions based on its sport-by-sport “athletic count,” which would be based on a three-part formula. If approved, implementation of the formula would begin no later than the 2013-14 school year and would be determined every other year by the Board of Directors. “The meetings we have conducted with the Competitive Balance Committee have been both productive and professional, and I believe the pro-

posal from the group is fair and equitable and we will see some leveling of the playing field,” OHSAA Commissioner Dan Ross said in a press release. “Ohio is unique in that our public schools have the option to approve open-enrollment policies, but, at the same time, there’s no question that most non-public schools in the state have no geographical boundaries in which they can secure students, and the result has been a disproportionate number of championships won by those schools.” All OHSAA schools currently are placed into tournament divisions based strictly on enrollment figures that the schools submit to the Ohio Department of Education. The proposed three-part formula to establish “athletic counts” would require the OHSAA to include factors in three areas: school boundaries, socioeconomic

factors and tradition factors. The “school boundary” factor would be divided into the categories of nonpublic schools with no boundaries, non-public schools with limited boundaries, public schools with statewide open enrollment, public schools with adjacent open enrollment and public schools with no open enrollment. The “socioeconomic factor” would be determined by the number of free lunch participants. The “tradition factor” would be determined by state championship game appearances, state tournament appearances and regional finals appearances. Once all three factors are applied to the enrollment count, each school would have a sport-by-sport “athletic count” for purposes of tournament division assignments. In central Ohio, schools that likely would be affected by some of the

Bradley’s Brooke Espenschied hurt the Eagles in the first game. She scored 16 points, with four of her six field goals being 3pointers. Bailey Pierron and Kelli Roudabush also are key perimeter scorers for the Jaguars, and 5-foot-10 forward Jasmine Junkins is the main inside presence. Bradley improved to 10-3 overall after beating Westerville South 61-46 last Saturday. Roudabush scored 19 points and Pierron had 15. “(Pierron is) the one we concentrated on taking out, but Espenschied is another one that we have to make sure we keep from getting good looks at the basket,” Puryear said. “They have a bunch of kids that are on the same level and they’re all pretty skilled basketball players.” Puryear has had some in-

games. Watterson senior Steven Fry (28 points) and New Albany senior Cameron Ballew (25 points) have been among the offensive catalysts as well. Moreover, Fixari liked the toughness the Storm showed in the win over Athens. A day earlier, Northeast had lost 3-2 to Westerville. The Storm’s next game against the Warcats is Jan. 29 at Dispatch Ice Haus. “Athens is one of the toughest places to play in the whole league, so to go down there and come home with two points was big,” Fixari said. “We changed our lines up a little bit before that game, running two centers (Tyler Wickiser and Turner) out there with all four lines. We had been playing them together, but we’re shaking things up a little as we try to make a push (in the standings).”

it is that I haven’t done particularly well in tournament play and now as a senior I want to make major improvements in that aspect of my sport.” Speaking about what bowling has done for him, Netotian said, “Bowling has taught me the importance of sticking with something and that carries over into lots of other aspects of my life. I love my sport and I love being around people that will always back you up when things are tough. Being good at a sport teaches you to stay with some-

thing until you finish it and getting better at bowling is like taking something apart and then putting it back together and making it better than it was before.” Netotian’s 300 game shows he is doing a great job of putting his skills to work at a very high level.

Cumin Indian Restaurant a fine replacement for Bayleaf When I heard Bayleaf was going out of business, I grimaced. The Polaris-area restaurant was one of my favorite places for Indian food. But when I heard the Cuisine of India people were taking over, I cheered up. You see, like Bayleaf, Cuisine of India is modern and authentic, serving both beloved classics and lots of contemporary-style dishes popular in cosmopolitan Indian cities. So when I waltzed into Cumin Indian Restaurant my expectations were pretty high. After a few visits, I realized this newbie was destined to shoot to the top of my Indian food list. Other than closing off the formerly open kitchen, Cumin’s owners haven’t performed any drastic cosmetic makeovers. It’s still a big, modern, open and airy room with few, if pleasant, decorations (chiefly multi-hued, saucer-shaped chandeliers) to distract visitors from

by G.A. Benton the task at hand — masticating on fabulously flavored chow. While buffets aren’t usually my thing, Cumin’s is, especially on weekends. That’s when the chaat station gets cranking, and I’m an inveterate fan of chaat. If you’ve never had them, chaats are Indian street-sold snacks that are meat-free riots of bold condiments, wild flavors and manifold textures. Fortunately, this generalization held true on a recent — and blissfully lengthy — lunchtime stopover at Cumin’s great buffet. In front of a longish line and manning a mammoth round pan, the buffet’s chaat guy began with a crispy puck of a potato pancake. To that he added a scoop of soupy,

highly seasoned chickpeas. Then came the garnishing : tart yogurt; chutneys of coriander (spicy) and tamarind (sweet); diced raw onion, tomato and cilantro; plus a finishing dusting of exotic, eggy-tasting chaat masala. It’s a crazy mess to eat, but I find its push-me/pullme flavors and textures to be an incomparable delight.

Post-chaat, there’s a dizzying array of buffet choices — the thing goes on forever. I counted six meat entrees (two in kabob form); five veggie entrees; two soups; two rice dishes; a large salad/condiment bar and four desserts. I liked everything I tried, but was especially fond of the Baigan Bharta (wonderful eggplant stew),

Aloo Cabbage (addictive mixed vegetable curry), and spicy, sweet and sour chicken dumplings. As for non-buffet appetizers, the huge, dense and firm chilimarinated homemade cheese kabobs (Paneer Shaslik, $9) had a great grilled flavor but their accompanying veggies (onion, garlic, peppers) were disarmingly uncooked. For an explosive curry, go for the Cumin Melthi Harydi ($12). Featuring a complex, aromatic, rich, carrot-colored gravy with a sneaky heat, the head-spinning dish was cleverly equipped with refreshing, mouth-cleansing sticks of ginger. Awesome. On the tamer side, but still terrific, was Cumin’s sizzling grill

($15, easily feeds two). Like a giant platter of mixed Indian fajitas, it’s a great way to sample several items on Cumin’s large menu. The “grill” was a round-up of about five kinds of smokily seared, delicious kabobs, my favorites of which were Haryali Tikka (juicy, boneless chicken chunks in a zesty pesto) and Lajwab Seek kabob (huge logs of ground lamb with minced green pepper, onion and cilantro). The mammoth dinner came with fluffy basmati rice and excellent dal. While none of Cumin’s desserts disappointed, the Gajar Halwa ($4 — milky, cardamomy, nutty and fruity shredded carrots) — was especially fun to munch. To read G.A. Benton’s blog, visit

Greek diner near UA takes simple approach to food, ambience Yiagos and Stratis Kostoglou had simplicity in mind when opening Greek to Me. The menu, for the time being, is a small and manageable collection of breakfast and lunch fare served in a humble dining room with blue and white gingham tablecloths and some Greek accents. “We want to make sure we serve good Greek food. We don’t want to make things complicated,” said Stratis, who opened the store with his father at 4697 Reed Road in Northwest Columbus. The breakfast items consist of the familiar – omelets, pancakes, French toast and typical sides, such as bacon, links and home fries. The lunch menu offers similarly approachable dishes, such as gyros,

subs, moussaka, pastitsio and souvlaki. They wanted prices to be inviting, too, as most entrees run between $6 and $8. It is the first restaurant for the pair.

Keep teeth healthy with proactive care

4210 Stelzer Rd. Columbus, OH 43219


Daily brushing, flossing and rinsing are parts of good oral care but routine professional cleanings and check ups are vital to long-term dental health. Benjamin Franklin once said: An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Across from Sam’s Club on Stelzer Rd.


Going to the dentist on a regular basis helps keep potential problems at bay. Early detection is key to a successful outcome. For example, finding and promptly fixing a small area of decay is easy and usually not painful or expensive. The same area left unchecked can become painful and costly to correct after number of dental visits.

Where You Won’t Be Treated Like A Number!

An innovator in his field, Jeffrey L. Angart, D.D.S., has been practicing for nearly 25 years. He has conducted extensive research and lectured nationally and internationally on cosmetic materials and tooth bonding. A graduate of OSU’s College of Dentistry, he holds a Bachelor of Science in Ceramic Engineering. The Center for Dental Health is a state-of-the-art practice where patients take an active role in their oral health. Dr. Angart’s professional team utilizes leading-edge technology in a serene setting to create a relaxed and calming environment. Custom esthetic crowns and veneers are created in the Center for Dental Arts laboratory which complements the practice.

In addition to insight provided through recommended x-rays, extensive visual exams allow a thorough dentist to see signs of gum disease and recession, areas of new decay and defective fillings or crowns. State-of-the-art technology like the equipment used at the Center for Dental Health also helps assure early detection and treatment. In our practice, we are also sticklers about staying ahead of the curve and training in the latest techniques available. A partnership between the dentist and the patient is another important part of good dental health. Patients make the commitment of taking care of their teeth with good daily habits and seeing their dentist when recommended. Dentists complement the effort by giving extra care, taking time to explain options and providing educational materials so patients can make informed decisions. There are lots of underlying causes to dental problems, but many can be minimized or solved with the right daily hygiene and routine professional care. Ben Franklin was a wise man.
