Charter change considered

Finance director could replace auditor By JEFF DONAHUE ThisWeek Community Newspapers

by city council. That person could also be terminated by the mayor, with the consent of city council. Much of the public meeting at Bexley High School was spent discussing the merits of an appointed director of finance versus an elected auditor. The Bexley city charter is being reviewed by the commission members for the first time in 12 years, and while a number of recommendations are expected to be forwarded to city council

Members of Bexley’s Charter Review Commission said Jan. 24 they are prepared to recommend the city’s elected auditor position be replaced with a director of finance, who would report directly to the mayor. Under the commission’s recommendation, the director of finance would be appointed by the mayor and confirmed

on March 1, none are as controversial as the debate over the auditor’s position. The 15-member commission has been reviewing the city charter, line by line, since November 2009. While the commission will forward its recommendations to city council, the members of city council will decide what issues, if any, are presented to voters. Bexley is currently served by parttime auditor Gary Qualman and Beecher Hale, a full-time finance director.

Commission members stressed that they were not unhappy with the performance of either of those individuals and that their decision is not personal. “This is in no way a reflection on our current auditor or previous auditor,” commission chairman John Offenberg said. “We have been blessed to have good people consistently.” However, Hale said that previous commission discussions had created an impression that his office has not commu-

nicated effectively with the mayor’s office. He said that impression was inaccurate and that he has a positive working relationship with both the mayor and city council. Commission members noted that most other central Ohio communities similar to Bexley (including Dublin, Gahanna, Grandview, Grove City, Hilliard, Westerville, Worthington and New Albany) See AUDITOR, page A3

Possible loss of estate tax revenue could affect land-use recommendations By TARA STUBBS-FIGURSKI ThisWeek Community Newspapers

‘Junior Dunkers’ program now in its 25th year By TARA STUBBS-FIGURSKI ThisWeek Community Newspapers

In 1986, Bexley City Council’s Jed Morison looked for a way to teach his son fundamental basketball skills. Finding nothing for 5- to 7-year-olds, he started the Junior Dunkers program. “To be candid, one of my kids was involved at the very beginning,” he said. “From talking to families and friends, I thought it might be fun … some noncompetitive (way) to teach fundamental basketball skills … a program for young boys and girls.” So Morison sat down with

then-recreation director John Barr and offered to establish the program. The 45-minute program is typically held in January. Morison describes it as a preliminary introduction to the game of basketball.” Morison had the chance to sit down and reflect on some of his participants over the years, many of whom have gone on to play basketball in high school or college. The list includes a professional baseball player and a heart surgeon. “That is obviously not the result of the program,” he said. See DUNKERS, page A2 Olivia Millard, 7, gets ready to take a shot.

The introduction of state legislation to abolish the estate tax could affect the city of Bexley in more ways than one. Bexley City Councilman Ben Kessler told members of the Land Use Strategy Commission on Jan. 17 he had intended to introduce an ordinance that would use a portion of the estate tax revenue to help finance the commission’s recommendations. But he decided not to do so after state leaders announced a plan to abolish the estate tax. Assistant House majority whip Cheryl Grossman (R-Grove City) and state Rep. Jay Hottinger (RNewark) jointly introduced legislation Jan. 12 to eliminate the Ohio estate tax, also known as the death tax. Over the past 10 years, estate tax revenues have accounted for approximately 17 percent of Bexley’s annual operating revenues. The land-use group was expected to present its final recommendation to Bexley City Council on Jan. 25. The commission began meeting in 2009 to develop long-term strategies for Bexley and recommendations for the next 10 years. “I had put together an ordinance that specified 15 percent of excess estate taxes, in excess of what was budgeted or anticipated, would be set aside for a redevelopment fund, to go toward redevelopment priorities as outlined in the plan,” Kessler said. Kessler said he met with other central Ohio communities in Upper Arlington to come up with

ways to engage the state legislature about the estate tax bill. Funding for the recommendations is up in the air, he said, adding he will have to go back to the drawing board and think of alternate funding, a daunting task given the city’s current economic conditions and a likely reduction or elimination of local government funds. Combining the loss of estate tax funds and the decrease in local government funds Bexley is looking at a revenue drop of $1.8-million per year, Kessler said. He was hoping the legislation he was set to sponsor would result in about $100,000 to $200,000 a year. “I have no clue where we will get the funding,” Kessler said. Many of the plans initiatives will require some funding. The commission has recommended that the city rewrite and modernize the city zoning code. That would cost roughly $40,000 in legal fees. “There are some improvements that have suggested greater opportunities for pedestrian access,” Kessler said. “That has a dollar figure attached to it.” See REVENUE, page A2

Bexley schools will maintain all-day kindergarten By TARA STUBBS-FIGURSKI ThisWeek Community Newspapers Even though Ohio Republicans are preparing legislation that could repeal the requirement that school districts offer tuition-free, all-day kindergarten, Bexley City Schools officials have no interest in doing away with the program. Rep. Randy Gardner, R-Bowling Green, is sponsoring legislation that

would repeal key elements of Ohio’s school-funding setup, including allday kindergarten. In addition to dropping the all-daykindergarten requirement, the proposed legislation would allow public schools that now charge tuition for the all-day program to continue doing so. Under current law, districts cannot charge tuition after this school year. Last February, the Bexley schools board voted down a resolution 3-2 to

ask the Ohio Department of Education to accept a waiver request for the program. Board members Marlee Snowdon, Carol Fey and Joan Fishel voted against the resolution; Craig Halliday and Diane Peterson voted for it. Under legislation passed in June 2009, the district could seek waivers for lack of space. New legislation passed in December 2009 as part of the state budget bill gives districts more flexibility to apply for and receive a waiv-

er. Superintendent Mike Johnson said even with the proposed bill he doesn’t anticipate school district officials changing their minds about all-day kindergarten. “We went ahead and implemented it this year when we knew full well we could have asked for a waiver,” he said. “Once implemented it is our position to maintain it and no one has given me any indication we are going to reverse

New Albany approaches Cassingham Elementary to estate tax differently host Bully Proof Workshop Editor’s note: The Jan. 20 edition of ThisWeek Bexley looked at the potential impact on the city of Bexley if the state legislature eliminates the estate tax. In this article, Lori Wince reports on how New Albany handles the issue. By LORI WINCE ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Some communities in central Ohio are scrambling to patch holes in their budgets if the state legislature repeals the estate tax. But New Albany officials say that community is not one of them. “It really does depend on the community,” said Scott McAfee, communications 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 would 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 bud-

geted around $100,000 in the 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 $333.8-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, if it is passed, retroactive to that date. State Rep. Jay Hottinger (R-

I’m proud to say that we have had the mayor’s children, the president of city council’s children and the city auditor’s children.” Morison, who has served as the coach since its inception, works on basic skill development: offense, defense and dribbling. At the end of the session, students break into games and play a game. When the program was started in the 1980s, participants used a gymnasium in Montrose that was much smaller than today’s gym. In the 1990s, there was a major renovation and the new gym was built; participants played at Maryland for awhile. “We came back to the new gym,

which has been terrific,” Morison said. When the program was started, there was no charge. At some point, Morison decided to charge a nominal fee and donate the proceeds to the recreation department to help students who otherwise could not participate. The cost for the three-week program is $25. Bexley recreation supervisor Barb Greiner said that by donating all the fees from Junior Dunkers to the Bexley Recreation Scholarship Fund, Morison continues his commitment to the welfare of children. “He is the best when it comes to instructing and introducing children to basketball,” Greiner said. There has always been plenty of space in the program, Morison said, saying that if necessary, extra

When resources are scanty, just write the book yourself By ANDREW MILLER ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Susan Levine reads the book “Packard Takes Flight.” She wrote the book as a way to teach central Ohio children about Columbus landmarks.

child would use. “Packard Takes Flight” tells the story of a young Peregrine Falcon named Packard, who leaves his nest at the top of the Rhodes Tower for the first time and discovers several landmarks of Columbus. “I think it is really important to teach in a fun way,” Levine said. “This book is a chance to learn about the history of Columbus as well as the plight of the endan-

gered peregrine falcons. The book includes sidebars for all of the landmarks and historical references to allow parents the opportunity to share more in depth information with their children. After completing her manuscript, the process of finding a publisher felt very long. “Most publishers denied me based on the regional nature of the book; because of the economy, many weren’t taking unso-

licited manuscripts,” she said. Then Levine discovered The History Press, located in Charleston S.C., a publisher specializing in regional history and storytelling. Within two weeks of sending in her manuscript she had a contract. The book was released just in time for the holidays. The process from concept to completion took three years, but only six months once her publisher went to work on it. Levine found the book’s illustrator, Canal Winchester resident Erin Burchwell, by attending several meetings of the Central Ohio Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators ( This group meets monthly at the Upper Arlington Public Library. The library connection isn’t lost on Levine. “Librarians are a great resource for book ideas. When a child comes in asking about a topic, and there isn’t a book for it, the librarians are stuck,” Levine said. “To me, this book has been an interesting community effort, including the librarians and English teachers at my kids’ school being some of my first editors.” Now that the book is in stores, Levine and Burchwell have created a school program that includes a Peregrine Falcon visit (courtesy of the Ohio Bird Sanctuary) as well as lessons about Columbus landmarks, children’s writing and illustration. “Packard Takes Flight” is available at Larson’s Toys and Games on Lane Avenue as well as several other local independent and national book retailers for $17.99.

garten before there was a state mandate and I will be after,” she said. “It is an excellent way to proactively address the needs of our youngest learns in a very costeffective manner.” Snowdon said research shows that children who attend all-day kindergarten are better equipped to read and do math for the rest of their academic careers. “It also gives us the time to teach the ‘whole child’ – that is art, music, library time and gym class – that we value so much as a community here in Bexley,” Snowdon said. “I believe the reason it will no longer be required by the state is not because it is a

bad idea but simply because there is not enough money in the state’s budget to support mandating it.” Halliday, one of the two board members interested in seeking the waiver last year, said it was not his intent to alter the current state of all-day kindergarten paid for by the citizens of Bexley. However if the administration were to bring a policy forward to alter the program he would have to consider it, Halliday said. “I would be open to anything brought to us as a board,” he said. “I don’t have an ax to grind. It was a conversation we had collectively. We’ve dealt with the issue and I’ve moved on.”


Upper Arlington resident Susan Levine just wanted to set out on a field trip with her kids, but ended up at an unexpected destination — becoming a children’s book author. Her first book, “Packard Takes Flight,” is out now. Levine’s journey to becoming an author started when she was asked to help put together a field trip of Columbus landmarks for her child’s class. “I went to the library to do some research and found out there were no children’s books about Columbus landmarks,” Levine said. “I was surprised. So many places I’ve visited have books like this, places much smaller than Columbus. So I thought, I should write one.” Thinking about writing a book and actually taking on the task were two different things. Levine said she let the idea linger, but it wasn’t until she heard about the Ohio Department of Natural Resources falcon nest project in downtown Columbus that the story itself came into view for her. “I immediately thought that the falcons could be a good vehicle to teach kids, by weaving the fictional story of a falcon around the actual history of the sites,” Levine said. Her kids were involved in the publishing process, as well. Levine said her son has been extremely supportive, and her daughter was one of her best editors, letting her know when phrases or words just weren’t what a

As it were

Growing community finds all levels of entertainment There are many ways to learn about a place and its past. I have always had the strong suspicion that how people entertain themselves can tell us a lot about who they were and what was important to them. With that as both an explainer and probably a bit of a warning, let’s take a look at how Columbus amused itself in its first few decades. Isolated from the East and South ED from where LENTZ most of its early residents arrived, it appears that the small frontier community of Columbus pretty much entertained itself in the first few years after it was founded in 1812. Carving a village out of a forest was not all that easy and the added diversion of the War of 1812 meant that most people did not have much leisure time. The time they did have was often occupied with family and visits to close friends nearby. After the Ohio General Assembly began to meet in Columbus in 1816, there was a decided increase in the number of taverns in town and in the number of people frequenting them — much to the chagrin of local ministers and the temperance advocates in their congregations. To understand early public entertainment in Columbus, it is important to remember that, then as now, there were several different “arts communities” in the capital city. Some of the early residents were quite well-educated and sorely missed the music, drama and literary world they had left behind. Several of these people formed what later came to be called “the first musical organization in Columbus.” The Handel Society apparently performed for the assembled multitude on the occasion of Independence Day in 1821 and 1822, and according to an account from that time, performed with “a superior degree of elegance.” How the singing of Handel’s work went over with the frontier folk who had never heard of him or his music was probably summed up with, “Handel was handled quite well” or something similar. For the rest of the people of Columbus, there were military organizations with their fifes and drums and the occasional entertainment of an itinerant musician. But there was not much else — until 1827. On April 21, 1827, Tippo Sultan, the Great Hunting Elephant, came to town. Tippo was accompanied, according to a local poster, by “The Mammoth Lion, Tiger, Cat, Lynx, Shetland Pony, Dandy Jack, etc. etc. The above named animals will be seen at Mr. Russell’s tavern, on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, the 27th, 28th and 29th inst. The exhibition will be accompanied by good music. Admittance 25 cents — children under 12 years of age half price.” Presumably, Mr. Russell felt his tavern would benefit by the arrival of Tippo and his friends. It did not work out quite that way, as a local history recalls: “At night, the ‘hunting elephant’ was locked up in the tavern back-

yard where, during one of the nights of his sojourn, he broke loose, and for a time amused himself by pumping water at the well. Finally he broke the pump handle and looking around for some new pastime, spied two barrels of flour standing on the back porch. Breaking into these, he, for a while, ate flour and drank water alternately until he converted the residue of the flour into paste. “Awakened by the noise, Mr. Russell descended and was received by the elephant with a fusillade of dough. Beating a retreat, the discomfited host aroused the keeper of the frolicsome beast, who, after some effort, succeeded in getting him tied again.” As a counterpoint to the arrival of Tippo Sultan and his friends, the more elevated culture group in town welcomed a “Mr. and Mrs. Harper” who, with a few friends and associates , were happy to perform Oliver Goldsmith’s classic play, “She Stoops to Conquer” for any who cared to come and pay to see it. Apparently, a number of people did, since the play was performed in the only place big enough to hold them — the public market building at State and High streets. Presumably, the live chickens, pigs and cows who occupied various stalls in the market were removed for the evening. The clash between “high culture” and, shall we say, “not-sohigh culture” continued apace. In 1833, one Rufus Beach organized the Franklin Harmonic Society, looking to improve “the vocal and instrumental music” of the city. Shortly thereafter, S. Butler and Company came to Columbus with a menagerie that included “the great hunting or war elephant, Hannibal.” Apparently Columbus really

liked elephants in those days. By 1835, Columbus had seen the arrival of the Ohio Canal and the National Road and had become a city of more than 5,000 people. The rapid growth in size and influence of Columbus evidently convinced enough investors to permit the construction of the first real theatre in the city. Built of wood, the Columbus Theatre stood on the west side of High Street just a few hundred feet north of Long Street, where the Brunson Building is today. Over the next several years, the theatre saw performances of classic plays, including Shakespeare and such titles as “St. George and the Dragon,” “Mazeppa” and “The Cataract of the Ganges.” For the less refined, the Columbus Theatre was also the home of Miss Honey, a “danseuse.” Of Miss Honey, a local paper reported, “Her most piquant dances were frequently followed by a shower of silver quarters.” It was also reported that “Miss Honey had considerable talent as an actress, and in whatever part she took evoked applause.” In later years, it was noted that “towards the end of 1841, the Columbus Theatre seems to have degenerated both financially and morally, and its evil influence upon the young people of the city, resulting particularly from its ‘bar’ for the sale of intoxicants, was loudly complained of.” The clash of culture between “legitimate” and not-so-legitimate entertainment would continue for much of the rest of the history of the city — and for that matter, down to our own time as well. Tippo Sultan would likely be amused. Ed Lentz writes a history column for ThisWeek.

Micro-distilling operation open for business in Grandview By ALAN FROMAN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

A new Tri-Village area business is bringing back the craft of micro-distilling. Last month, Watershed Distillery’s gin and vodka went on sale at stores, restaurants and bars around central Ohio.

Combined birthday, business Sinus infections in children anniversary event set for Jan. 29 By KEVIN PARKS

Anand Saha explained last week

“Every year it gets bigger and

ThisWeek Community Newspapers that he lived for a time in Austria, bigger,” Saha said. “I don’t call it

The joint celebration of the founding of Mozart’s and the birth of Mozart has gotten so big over its 16 years that it’s no longer just a celebration. Now, it’s a festival, according to Anand Saha, co-owner with wife Doris of Mozart’s Bakery and European Piano Café, 2885 N. High St. This year’s observation of a birthday and an anniversary will take place on Saturday, Jan. 29, two days after the famed Austrian composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart came into the world in 1756 and 16 years after the Sahas founded a bakery and café they named after him. It will run from noon to 10 p.m. and feature complimentary European pastries and canapés, as well as live classical music performed by local artists.

which is where his wife is from. The two met in Switzerland in 1989 while he was studying hotel management and she was completing her training as a pastry chef. The Sahas moved to Columbus in 1995 and “risked everything,” according to Anand’s announcement of this year’s founding event, to open their own bakery. The couple’s joint connection with Austria led them to call their business Mozart’s, after the country’s most famous citizen. The birthday party for namesake Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was first held the following year. “It’s a great way of saying thank you to the people,” Saha said. A few hundred people turned out for the first anniversary-birthday event, he said. It now routinely draws crowds of over 2,000, according to the announcement.

a celebration anymore; I call it a festival.” One of the high points of the annual daylong gathering is the cutting of a birthday cake by a guest of honor. Past years have seen this duty performed by the likes of Mayors Greg Lashutka and Michael B. Coleman, Austrian diplomat Friedl Bohm, State Sen. Jim Hughes, former Congresswoman Mary Jo Kilroy and former Columbus Symphony Orchestra conductor Alessandro Siciliano. This year’s guest of honor will be recently re-elected State Rep. John Patrick Carney (D-Clintonville). “He gets the privilege of cutting the piano-shaped cake with the help of someone dressed up as little Mozart at 5:30 p.m.,” Saha said. “That’s always the highlight of the festival.”

In brief Zoo mourns loss of 46-year-old gorilla Lulu, a 46-year-old western lowland gorilla, died unexpectedly at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium this week. The gorilla, who suffered from arthritis, had a seizure on Jan. 22, a news release from the zoo said. “The frequency and severity of the seizures progressed and on Monday, Jan. 24, while being sedated in preparation for an MRI she stopped breathing and could not be resuscitated,” the release said. An autopsy is being performed.

Lulu was born in Africa and at age 2 was brought to the Central Park Zoo in 1966. In 1984, Lulu came to the Columbus zoo, where she had three babies. Lulu was also a member of the zoo’s gorilla surrogacy program and mothered two infants. “When she came to the Columbus Zoo our first impression of Lulu was she was one tough lady,” animal care and conservation vice president Dusty Lombardi said in the release, “but it wasn’t long before she showed us her sweet maternal side. She was also fun-loving and enjoyed playing hide and seek with her keepers.” Zoo staff invite the public to share memories of Lulu on the Columbus Zoo Facebook page.

Frequent sinus infections in children are a common problem, especially for children in daycare settings. The average child can have six to ten upper respiratory tract infections a year that have symptoms including nasal discharge and blockage. Other factors that contribute to frequent sinus infections are environmental allergies, exposure to second-hand smoke, immunodeficiency, congenital craniofacial anomalies and some inherited conditions. Children with lung problems such as asthma and cystic fibrosis often have related sinus problems. Most viral infections will resolve without treatment. A small percentage will progress to bacterial sinusitis that will require antibiotics for treatment. Narrowing or blockage of the nasal passages or sinus openings may increase the chances that a cold will progress to bacterial sinusitis. Often, children may need medication to help treat sinus problems. This could include nasal steroids, nasal saline, mucous-thinning medications called mucolytics, and some allergy medications

such as antihistamines. In a small percentage of children, surgery may be necessary to relieve the CHARLES blockage and ELMARAGHY open the sinuses or nasal passages. Prior to any surgery, a thorough work-up is necessary in order to determine the appropriate treatment course. Younger children do not typically need surgery on the sinuses as their sinuses are still developing. Younger children with frequent sinus infections often have their adenoid, a patch of tissue located where the nose and throat join, removed. The adenoid can be a haven for bacteria and can often block the nasal passages. Removing the adenoid is a simple and painless surgery that can be very effective. When the sinus problem is more involved than an enlarged adenoid, the sinuses need to be imaged via a special X-ray called a CT scan to investigate the anatomy of the

sinuses and determine if the openings of the sinuses are blocked. If sinus openings are blocked, they can be enlarged using special instruments and a small camera called an endoscope. This is called endoscopic sinus surgery. The natural openings are widened and preservation of normal anatomy is the goal. Nationwide Children’s Hospital’s Rhinology Clinic is unique in that it offers allergy testing and endoscopic evaluation during the same visit. This allows both the allergist and otolaryngologist to determine an appropriate treatment plan. You should always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health care provider prior to starting or stopping any treatment or with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. Dr. Charles Elmaraghy is a member of the Department of Otolaryngology at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and an assistant professor of clinical otolaryngology at the Ohio State University College of Medicine.

Shelton, girls work hard to rebound By PAUL BATTERSON ThisWeek Community Newspapers

As has been the case in nearly every game this season, the Bexley High School girls basketball team will be at a considerable height disadvantage when it travels to Newark Catholic on Friday, Jan. 28. However, that doesn’t concern Jelicia Shelton. The 5-foot-7 senior post player said the Lions make up for what they may lack in height by outhustling their opponents. “We’re not tall at all, but I don’t really see it as a disadvantage,” Shelton said. “We have to work 10 times harder than the other teams. We know we’re shorter, but we’re tough and fast and get after it.” The Lions have only one player — 5-10 senior center Amubie SamAgwor — 5-8 or taller. The rest of their players are listed 5-7 or shorter. Despite that, Bexley was outrebounding its opponents by an average of 29.5 rebounds to 27.3 through 14 games. The numbers are even more telling when broken down by wins and losses. Through 14 games, the Lions outrebounded opponents by an average of 31 to 23.4 in victories and were outrebounded by an average of 35 to 26 in losses. “If we’re going to have any type of success on the basketball court, we have to get rebounds,” coach Jim Strode said. “That’s non-negotiable. “Rebounding comes down to two things — technique and toughness. Even though teams may have a good six inches on us, I’ll take my kids’ toughness over any team we face any day of the week.” Shelton, who was averaging 11.3 rebounds through 14 games, has become one of the area’s top rebounders. “Shelton has always had a nose for the basketball,” Strode said. “Her bread and butter are getting rebounds.” Shelton set the program-record for rebounds in a game with 24 in a 6864 win over Beechcroft on Dec. 22. That effort topped the previous mark of 20 set by Sue Ramsey, currently the Ashland University women’s basketball coach, in 1974. Shelton came within four rebounds of matching Ramsey’s record last season by grabbing 16 in a 57-36 loss at Granville. “She probably would’ve gotten the record that night if her coach hadn’t pulled her out of the game,” Strode said with a laugh, adding that he was unaware Shelton was so close to the record in the game against Granville last season. “But for her to get the

Swim team takes aim at 13th straight league title

Jaskot’s future bright with UA

“Most of our swimmers are looking to district (to peak), but we kind of look at that differently,” Gear said. “We look at district and state as one weeklong athletic event. We want our swimmers to compete well at the beginning and the end of that week.” •Art Roehrenbeck is happy with the progress of his hockey team. The Cardinals, 13-8-3 overall and 4-2-2 in the Capital Hockey Conference, will play a league game on Friday, Jan. 28, against Olentangy at Dispatch Ice Haus. “We have great tests in four of our last six games because they are all teams that we would expect to play in the Blue Jackets Cup or in district,” Roehrenbeck said. “We have been scoring plenty and have been

Entering the latter stages of January, Jaskot had one of the highest scores locally on the uneven bars, balance beam, floor exercise and in all-around competition.

Winning league titles is nothing out of the ordinary for the St. Charles Preparatory School swimming team, and the Cardinals hope to continue that streak at the first step in postseason competition. The Cardinals will be aiming to win a 13th consecutive CCL championship when the league meet concludes Saturday, Jan. 29, at the St. Charles pool. The league diving meet will be Thursday, Jan. 27, at Columbus School for girls, but the Cardinals do not have any divers. “We don’t necessarily talk about the (league championship) streak, but it is the first week of a championship series that is followed by sectional, district and state,” said coach Geoff Gear, whose team defeated Cincinnati Sycamore 105-65 on Jan. 22 and lost to Centerville 157-127 on Jan. 21. “It’s also the last time the whole team competes together before it separates for sectional, district and state.” The Cardinals won the CCL title last year with 437 points followed by DeSales (204), Hartley (194) and Ready (181). Watterson did not field a boys team. “This gives us a good chance to prepare for the postseason meets,” Gear said. “We’re spread out pretty well and have the depth to do well in the CCL.” On Jan. 15, the Cardinals competed in the Northeast Classic at Canton’s Branin Natatorium, the venue for the state tournament Feb. 23-26. Caleb Jack was second (4 minutes, 59.71 seconds) in the 500-yard freestyle and Orion Swanson was sixth (54.98) in the 100 butterfly and eighth (2:10.38)

in the 200 individual medley. In the 100 backstroke, Zack Poltor was sixth (56.97) followed by teammates Alex Kocher (seventh, 57.18) and Brian Willi (eighth, 58.01). In the 100 breaststroke, Nick McKinley was sixth (1:02.61) followed by Chris D’Angelo (seventh, 1:04.35). The 200 free relay of Willi, Swanson, Hayden Birnbrich and Poltor was sixth (1:30.87) and the 200 medley relay of Kocher, McKinley, Willi and Matt Brown was sixth (1:40.88). “Right now, depth is our strength,” Gear said. We don’t have the one or two superstars that we have had in the past, but our third and fourth swimmers are as strong as they have been over the past few seasons.” The Cardinals will be the host team on Feb. 4 for a meet with Bexley and Columbus Academy as a primer for the Division I sectional on Feb. 12 at Upper Arlington.

‘Tradition factor’ in OHSAA division proposal unfair It’s not hard to imagine the confrontational feelings that were created when the OHSAA released a statement Jan. 13 announcing that it was tackling the seemingly age-old debate regarding competitive balance among the state’s public and private schools. The proposed referendum, to be voted on by OHSAA member schools in May, initially would reset divisional alignments in football, baseball, boys and girls basketball, boys and girls soccer, girls volleyball and softball based on a school’s sport-by-sport “athletic count.” That figure would be calculated using mathematical factors that take into account economics, school enrollment policies and tradition. On one side of the debate are public schools that won only eight of the 27 state team titles — one of six in football — that the OHSAA awarded during the 2010 fall season.

Many in the private-school camp, meanwhile, are left to wonder whether rules changes, which seemingly would bump them into larger divisions, are fair. There are many JARROD reasons for the disULREY proportionate number of titles won by private schools, but the primary one is that some of those schools can assemble virtual all-star teams from five- and six-county areas. With that in mind, it does seem reasonable for the OHSAA to visit the issue of boundaries when determining the divisions for private schools, and some large public schools. The biggest problem I have is with the “tradition factor” that would in-

crease a school’s “athletic count.” The OHSAA says this aspect would be determined by “state championship game appearances, state tournament appearances and regional finals appearances.” The implication of this sounds more like a step toward eventually giving participation medals to everyone as opposed to rewarding the best of the best. Few people want to see Delphos St. John’s beat Shadyside 77-6 for the Division VI state football title, and having Youngstown Ursuline win three consecutive Division V state championships is less than ideal when talking about keeping the field balanced. The problem is that if the OHSAA moves St. John’s up to Division V and Ursuline to Division IV, the same problems will persist, but with different teams. If Hartley would have been in Divi-

sion III instead of Division IV last fall, it would have been a strong candidate to win that title instead because Watterson, according to the proposed plan, likely would have been in Division II instead of Division III. Schools that could end up getting hurt unintentionally by a change are the Division I public schools. A perennial central Ohio football power such as Hilliard Davidson not only has to overcome fellow area public-school powers such as Pickerington Central and Dublin Coffman, but a team such as Cincinnati St. Xavier, which has 1,171 boys, could be looming later in the playoffs. The new formula potentially also would move state powers such as Mentor Lake Catholic and Toledo Central Catholic into Division I, making a tough field even tougher. Some have suggested separating into

Players nominated for McDonald’s games

Bexley High School senior Maddie Morton, a four-time qualifier to the state girls tennis tournament, has committed to play for the University of Redlands, a Division III school in Redlands, Calif. Morton finished in the top eight of the Division II girls tournament four times. Last fall, she went 26-6 and lost to eventual state runner-up Rachel Nelson of Port Clinton 6-1, 62 in a singles quarterfinal. Morton will join a Redlands team that reached the second round of the NCAA Division III championships last May.

Ten high school basketball players from central Ohio are among the nearly 2,000 nominees for the 2011 boys and girls McDonald’s All-American games. The eight area boys nominees are Nate Anderson of Teays Valley, Dwayne Bazemore of Walnut Ridge, Trey Burke of Northland, Traevon Jackson of Westerville South, Jalen Ragland of Chillicothe, Brian Sullivan of Upper Arlington, Stevie Taylor of Gahanna and Austin Traylor of Walnut Ridge. The area girls nominees are

We have led or been tied in the third period several times and then the last few minutes have been our undoing.” St. Charles lost five of six defensemen in the offseason and has had players learning on the fly. Still, Roehrenbeck said the Cardinals have made progress in that area. “We have to keep working them hard in practice and having our forwards work hard against them,” he said. “That’s the way to make them better.” St. Charles forward Tyler Brady definitely would be difficult for young defensemen to face in practice. The senior leads the CHC with 13 goals and he has 37 goals for the season. “I think we are scoring as well as anyone and that’s something that’s hard to coach,” Roehrenbeck said. “It’s hard to manufacture scoring and, offensively, it’s hard to find a team that has been playing as well as these guys have been.”

private-school and public-school tournaments, but that only would hurt the spirit of competition that should exist when determining the state’s best. Is there an obvious solution to the issue? Not exactly, but it doesn’t seem like radical change is necessary. Tradition should be kept out of the equation. Teams like DeSales and Watterson have earned their success by creating programs that teach winning football. This shouldn’t be penalized, but emulated by other programs. Keeping in mind the boundary issues, the OHSAA should choose to tweak, rather than revamp, the way it determines its tournament divisions. Let the rest of the arguments be settled on the field.

“Like a lot of young athletes in my sport, I think I lack confidence at times and when that happens I have learned to simply take a breath and let my brain take over and let my body do what it can do. This whole experience has helped me in every aspect of my life because sometimes when I put myself down because I can’t reach my goals in a certain gymnastics event, I learn how to cope with that adversity and I try to relax so I can get through those challenges. ... That is pretty much the way life works also, and so my sport is helping me grow every day.” If she continues to develop, Jaskot will be one of the contenders at the district meet. She looks forward to that challenge. “What I absolutely love about my sport is learning new skills and then displaying them in competition,” she said. “When you learn new things they never become old. I know I will have down days because I think gymnastics is a very hard sport, but what a great feeling I get when I do something that is amazing to me and I think that just maybe no one else can do that but me.” Jaskot’s future looks golden. I’ll see you at a meet.

put me in a school gymnastics program at Greensview Elementary and I really liked it and before long was flipping around everywhere. “Eventually, I wound up at Universal Gymnastics and it was then that I knew this sport was for me and I progressed pretty well. My club gymnastics experience has been great, but now I get to represent my school and I love being a Golden Bear athlete. My brother, Phil, was on the UA football and baseball teams and my sister, Marissa, was in swimming and water polo, so I feel proud to keep the family tradition going. “Being part of this high school team is really fun and things are so upbeat and the skills you have to do to be successful aren’t quite as hard as club, so there is a little less pressure. I am really enjoying this time.” Talking about her abilities as a gymnast, Jaskot said, “I guess what helps me first is that I am a perfectionist. When I learn a new skill, I won’t use it until I think I have perfected it. I get complimented on my form and the fundamental way that I keep my legs tight and have pointed toes, but I do get frustrated when I can’t reach the level I want to get to and keep trying by telling myself that I am going to accomplish this. And Larry Larson is a former athletics director at when I do conquer a skill, it makes my day a ton Grandview High School. He can be heard as “Mr. High School Sports” on WTVN 610 AM. better.
