COTA meeting

Three alternatives emerge for bus facility By KEVIN PARKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

North Clintonville resident Steve Lake drew a laugh Jan. 24 at what had initially promised to be a tense affair, a regeared effort by Central Ohio Transit Authority officials to locate a bus turnaround. Last summer’s plan to tear down a strip shopping center on the east side of North High Street at Kanawha Avenue

to make way for the facility stirred up considerable ill feelings among nearby residents, so much so that on July 22 the COTA board of directors voted unanimously against the proposal. Immediately after that decision, Lake said at a Jan. 24 meeting in the North Community Evangelical Lutheran Church, he approached board members to suggest what he felt was the perfect alternative site: on the east side of High

Street just north of the old Melting Pot restaurant. It’s since been sold twice, most recently to the Wesley Glen Retirement Community, representing a missed opportunity, in Lake’s view. “I don’t know why you didn’t listen to me,” Lake told COTA president and chief executive officer William J. Lhota, to the guffaws of many of the 50-plus on hand. COTA is listening now, Lhota assured

him, and will be taking a very hard look not only at that property. COTA will also consider two others that emerged from residents who came ready to complain about perceived past lapses in judgment but left after complying with the CEO’s request for suggestions. State Rep. John Patrick Carney, RClintonville, served as facilitator at the gathering. “I think it is a tremendous statement

about our community that so many people are interested in this bus turnaround,” Carney said to start the proceedings. “I see this as really the beginning of a dialogue.” Lhota came armed with a letter from Don M. Casto, one of the partners in the firm that owns Graceland Shopping Center where COTA buses currently turn See THREE ALTERNATIVES, page A2

Birthday, business anniversary event set for Jan. 29 By KEVIN PARKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

By Chris Parker/ThisWeek

Clintonville residents Nicole, Danny and Brian Kraft show the book Brian wrote “The Year My Dad Went Bald: A Tale of Cancer, Chemo and Coping with a Cold Head” after he was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 42. Brian used his experiences to write the book, which is told from the perspective of a child to help others to handle a similar situation with their children.

Dad’s bout with cancer, baldness leads to book By KEVIN PARKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

When the remnants of Hurricane Ike blasted through central Ohio on Sept. 14, 2008, many Columbus residents were plunged into darkness for days on end as a result of extended power outages. The Kraft family of Clintonville was already in the dark as to what was ailing dad Brian. The Philadelphia native and freelance illustrator, who once worked in that capacity for ThisWeek Community Newspapers, was awakened in the middle of the night weeks earlier by searing pain in his groin. It was like nothing he’d ever experi-

enced before. Luckily, Brian Kraft said last week, he already had a routine physical scheduled. Presuming he’d somehow developed a hernia from playing basketball, Kraft kept the appointment, only to be told that wasn’t it at all. He eventually had a CAT Scan and other tests, and then, still in the darkness of the power failure, Brian and Nicole Kraft sat in a doctor’s office and were told, “You either have lymphoma or leukemia.” It’s not the sort of thing anyone ever wants to hear. “You can’t believe it’s happening to you,” Brian Kraft recalled last week. “I was more worried about

my wife freaking out.” “I guess I blanched,” said Nicole Kraft, a journalism professor at Ohio State University. “I got really hot and really cold.” She also got really frustrated; her every instinct told her to go home, go online and research the heck out of both forms of blood cancer. But with the power out, she couldn’t. Eventually, Brian Kraft was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. He got treatment. And he got better. But that’s not what this story is about. This is about what Brian Kraft did after he and Nicole could not find any books to help them in ex-

plaining things to their then-7-yearold son, Daniel Levi Kraft. He wrote and illustrated his own book on the subject. Titled “The Year My Dad Went Bald: A Tale of Cancer, Chemo and Coping with a Cold Head” is told from the perspective of Danny, who will turn 10 in February. A portion of the profits from the often-touching tome, which is intended to help children between 6 and 12 cope with a cancer diagnosis of a parent, will be donated to the charities Hockey Fights Cancer and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Columbus Community Safer Streets for All meeting Coalition trying Focus will be safe walking, biking to school to reboot once again By KEVIN PARKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

community councils, in early


ThisWeek Community Newspapers 2008. It grew out of a working

A movement is afoot to try to once again have the Columbus Community Coalition coalesce. “It’s something that we believe will come and should come back,” Northland Community Council president Dave Paul said last week. He was among those who helped start the organization, aimed at fostering and improving communication and cooperation among local civic associations, area commissions and

group convened the previous year by city council to make recommendations on ways citizen groups can better work together and with city officials. Paul, along with former Northwest Civic Association president Jennifer Adair, who recently helped form the new Maize Road Civic Association in North Linden, served on the task force, representing not only their organizations but civic associa-

As the name implies, Safer Streets for All doesn’t have a very narrow focus. The nonprofit Clintonville organization, which was launched in the fall, will soon begin focusing on one of three major areas, that of getting children to school safely by walking or riding their bikes, something other than car or bus. A meeting of the Safe Routes to School committee of Safer Routes for All, open to anyone interested in the topic, has been scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 1, at 7:30 p.m. in the offices of Consider Biking, 4041 N. High St. The Safer Streets for All people aren’t exactly reinventing the wheel with this plank in their platform, board member and com-

mittee chairwoman Elizabeth Smith said. “It’s a national group and also a state group, so we’ll be affiliating with that under Safer Streets for All,” she said. The Feb. 1 gathering will be the organizational meeting, intended to discuss “where we want to go, how we want to do it,” according to Smith, who also serves on the Clintonville Area Commission’s education committee. “So it’s just kind of a logical extension to go from one to the other,” Smith said. “She’s the right person for the job,” said Mike McLaughlin, the CAC liaison to the committee. Smith encouraged parents and others to attend the organizational session. “We would love to have people come,” she said.

“Safe Routes to School programs are sustained efforts by parents, schools, community leaders and local, state, and federal governments to improve the health and wellbeing of children by enabling and encouraging them to walk and bicycle to school,” according to the website of the National Center for Safe Routes to School. “SRTS programs examine conditions around schools and conduct projects and activities that work to improve safety and accessibility, and reduce traffic and air pollution in the vicinity of schools. As a result, these programs help make bicycling and walking to school safer and more appealing transportation choices, thus encouraging a healthy and active lifestyle from an early See SAFER STREETS, page A2

Three alternatives emerge for bus facility Continued from page A1 around. “While we value our relationship and partnership with COTA, our plans are to complete the redevelopment of Graceland that we began several years ago,” Casto wrote. “The plans we have developed for the remaining parcels of our site

would make it impossible for COTA to continue operating on the Graceland property.” The criteria for an alternative site, as outlined by Doug Moore, vice president of planning and customer service, included that it be across from or north of Graceland, at an intersection with a traffic light, have appropriate zoning, be

three quarters of an acre in size and have a willing seller. “We do not – and I emphasize do not – want to use eminent domain,” Lhota said. “As far as we’re concerned, eminent domain is off the table.” Stan Bradham, owner of Stan Bradham Car Co., 5150 N. High St., arose to pronounce himself a willing seller. While

his property alone might not be large enough, he said, only a small section of wooded land owned by the Ohio State School for the Blind would have to be added to make it the right size. “If that’s an acceptable option for the community, we’re more than willing to sit down with you,” Lhota said. Along with the former Taco Bell restau-

rant site inside Graceland but not owned by Casto, suggested by several on hand, Bradham’s car lot and the property adjacent to the old Melting Pot, COTA officials vowed to have consultants determine which might best meet the transit authority’s needs.

“I’m going to be all right,” dad said. I knew he was trying to sound brave and he didn’t want me to worry, but I could tell he was scared. “The chances for a cure are really good. Mario Lemieux had it and he came back and play for the Pittsburgh Penguins.” Finally, something I could understand. I’m a big hockey fan, and I knew that Mario was one of the best ever. — From “The Year My Dad Went Bald”

As the game started I was having a hard time getting into it. Then I saw dad and mom walking across the field. Dad looked sick and weak, but he had come straight from the hospital to watch my game. I was so glad to see him. I tried to play my best. — From “The Year My Dad Went Bald”

“I never felt that I wasn’t going to get better,” Brian Kraft said last week. Nevertheless, he and Nicole knew that his diagnosis and treatment were going to have a big impact on Danny. Brian Kraft was a stay-athome dad at the time. “We’re pretty charmed people, and life had been as good as it could get,” Nicole Kraft said. “Team Kraft,” as Nicole puts it, decided to tackle Brian’s illness together, with everyone knowing everything, nothing held back. “It was complete honesty, no sugarcoating,” Brian Kraft said. “We just laid it out for him,” his wife added. The big thing they sought to get across to Danny, Nicole Kraft said, was: “You’re life’s not going to be as much fun. You’re not going to be the center of the universe. Dad is.” The initial chemotherapy treatment is often the roughest on cancer patients, which was exacerbated in Brian’s case due to an allergic reaction to one of the drugs. “The first one is absolute the worst thing that can happen to you,” Brian Kraft said. The medicine was really strong and it made dad feel worse than the cancer. When he came home he didn’t look so good, and all he could do was lay on the couch. Dad started to throw up and couldn’t stop hiccupping. I hate the hiccups. He threw up a bunch of times. Mom was getting worried and she decided to take him to the emergency room. — From “The Year My Dad Went Bald” In spite of the setback from the allergic reaction, Brian Kraft managed to get out of the hospital just in time to attend Danny’s soccer

“Our relationships have changed forever, and we’re a better family by far than we were,” Nicole Kraft said. A worrier by nature, Nicole Kraft used to worry about the small things. Now, she knows firsthand there are much bigger things to worry about. “Life is just too short,” she said. “You take it day by day,” Brian Kraft said. “It always in the back of your mind: ‘I could get sick again, I could get sick again.’You live life to the fullest.” Brian Kraft has been cancer-free since January 2009. He wrote and illustrated the book, using a journal his wife kept of his illness. “I could not be more thrilled with it,” Nicole Kraft said. Some copies of “The Year My Dad Went Bald” have been given to the Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center, Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute. Nicole Kraft said that she just recently learned of the book being given to one family after the father was diagnosed with cancer. “I’m so proud of him,” she said of her husband.

Columbus Community Coalition trying to reboot Continued from page A1 tions in general. “Once we were done, those of us involved said, ‘You know this has been very beneficial, to come together and talk like this,’ ” Paul said. More than 50 people gathered in February 2008 seeking to determine what form a new group might take, and what issues it would address. “We’re not looking at a really formalized structure,” then-Clintonville Area Commission chairman Chris Gawronski said at the time. “We’re not looking at creating more bureaucracy. “I see this as very fluid and changing as it needs (to be) changed.” “The objective was to bring not just the area commissions but all the 300, at the time and perhaps more, civic associations in Columbus together,” Paul said last week. “The reason that the coalition was formed was just to make sure that neighbors were talking,” Adair said. The mission statement for what organizers decided to dub the Columbus Community Coalition, still up on its dormant website, states: “The Columbus Community Coalition fosters and enhances relationships among community groups by advocating to improve the quality of life in Columbus, Ohio.” The coalition did have four quarterly meetings and participated in putting on a July 20 debate regarding the income tax hike which voters approved in an Aug. 4 special election.

The birthday party for namesake Wolfgang 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 anniversarybirthday event, he said. It now routinely draws crowds of over 2,000, according to the announcement. “Every year it gets bigger and bigger,” Saha said. “I don’t call it 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.”

Commentary & opinion



Beveridge to DeFourny: ‘You have it all wrong’ To the editor: John DeFourny, I respectfully disagree with your recent statements to Kevin Parks at ThisWeek, as I know many of the community members that live in Clintonville’s District 9 do. Once again, you have it all wrong. This is not COTA’s meeting, but a meeting between COTA and community representatives to discuss the needs of COTA and how we as a community, not just as bystanders, can help to fulfill as many of COTA’s needs as possible, and align them with the needs of the community. As members of an advisory committee with COTA our goal is to work with COTA and find a way to help them, and to further welcome them into our community by taking the necessary steps to find a positive solution that works for both sides, COTA and the local community. We will not simply be limited, or cut short, in our efforts to build a positive relationship with COTA. Additionally, I would state that we are partners in the process, not simply there to be talked at by COTA. The committee is designed to help address the issues that will more than likely directly impact District 9, maybe District 6, but not your District 8, Mr. DeFourny. You are correct in that this is not a CAC meet-

ing, but we will not limit our thoughts and our discussions as is seen at most recent CAC meetings between the chair and other CAC representatives. Instead, we will forge a positive relationship that will move us forward with this project and all future projects that we can assist COTA with. This is not a do-over, as you call it. This is a doright: do-it-right for COTA, do-it-right for the community, and as Rep. John Carney said, a “win-win” for both sides. Maybe you don’t like a win-win, but we think it’s possible. I see a major problem here, Mr. DeFourny, in that you did not fully participate in the previous process with the Sharon Heights Community Association (SHCA) and Sharon Township leadership, except as a bystander. More importantly you are forgetting what your Clintonville Area Commission Charter is: to represent the community. On the other hand, Ms. Searcy, CAC District 9 commissioner, did listen to her constituents, did work hard to stop the project at the request of constituents and does have the full support of the SHCA on this issue…. Keith Beveridge President, Sharon Heights Community Association

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. The small frontier community pretty much entertained itself in the first few ED years after it LENTZ was founded in 1812. Carving a village out of a forest was not all that easy and the War of 1812 meant that most people did not have 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 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 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 from Tippo and his friends. It did not work out that way, as a local history recalls: “At night, the ‘hunting elephant’ was locked up in the tavern backyard where, during one of the nights of his sojourn, he broke loose, and for a time amused himself by pumping water at the well.

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 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. Soon, 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 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.

OHSAA division changes not fair 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 referJARROD endum, to be ULREY voted on by O H S A A 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 reasons for the disproportionate number of titles won by private schools, but the primary one is that some of those schools can assemble virtual all-star teams from fiveand 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 increase 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.

Watterson Roundup

Boys squad lacks scoring punch By AARON BLANKENSHIP ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Utilizing a mixture of man-to-man and various zone defenses, the Watterson High School boys basketball team held opponents to an average of 46 points through 12 games. During a six-game span, which began Jan. 4 and ended Jan. 21, the Eagles held their opponents to 42 points or fewer. Unfortunately for the Eagles, they went 1-5 during that stretch to drop to 3-9 overall and 1-3 in the CCL heading into a non-league game at home against Zanesville Rosecrans on Jan. 25. The Eagles averaged only 36.5 points themselves in those six contests. Watterson lost to DeSales 36-32 in a See ULREY, page A6 CCL game Jan. 21 at Otterbein, just

seven days after losing to Hartley 34-32 in another league contest. “Our kids have been playing outstanding defense, especially against two very strong teams in Hartley and DeSales,” coach Vince Lombardo said. “We’ve done a good job of mixing up our defensive looks to hold teams down and that’s kept us in games. We’re having trouble winning some of these closer games, though, because we need to get better offensively.” The Eagles averaged 15 turnovers and only 41.1 points through 12 games. Brad McCurdy was leading Watterson in scoring through 12 games, averaging 8.8 points. Connor Geraghty (8.3) was second, followed by Brian Dunlay (8.2), Jake Brobst (4.8) and Brad Horstman (4.4).

McCurdy had 10 points against Hartley and Geraghty scored 11 against DeSales. “We need to take better care of the basketball, because we’re turning it over way too much,” Lombardo said. “Right now, we’re not comfortable when we get sped up, and that’s something we’ll keep working on in practice. If we can be patient and get better looks at the basket, I believe we’ll shoot better and gain a little more confidence.” The Eagles play host to St. Charles on Friday, Jan. 28, in a CCL rematch before playing host to Upper Arlington on Monday, Jan. 31, in a non-league game. St. Charles lost to Olentangy Orange 56-55 on Jan. 22 to drop to 6-5 overall and beat Ready 60-39 on Jan. 21 to improve to 2-2 in the CCL.

Watterson lost to St. Charles 42-32 on Jan. 5, as 6-foot junior guard Jim Ryan scored 11 points and 6-3 senior forward Joe Spahr scored 10 to lead the Cardinals. Geraghty had 11 points to pace the Eagles. “St. Charles has one outstanding player in (6-5 senior post player Dane) McLoughlin, but they have much better balance in their offense this year, so we’ll have to guard them at every position,” Lombardo said. “They play man defense and we’ve got to be prepared to handle their pressure.” UA defeated New Albany 61-51 on Jan. 22 to improve to 12-0, as senior guard Brian Sullivan scored 28 points and junior guard Carter Smith scored 14.

Mascarello finding niche on girls basketball team By JARROD ULREY ThisWeek Community Newspapers

By Lorrie Cecil/ThisWeek

Marcus Moore (left) of Whetstone works on Marion-Franklin’s Floyd Cisco in a match at 125 pounds during a meet Jan. 5. The Braves compete at Centennial on Wednesday, Feb. 2.

Kalie Mascarello was aware she had a strong game offensively in the Whetstone High School girls basketball team’s 74-50 loss to Beechcroft on Jan. 18, but the freshman wasn’t expecting the response she got from the team’s scorekeeper. “They told me that I scored 24 points, which was a career high,” Mascarello said. “I wasn’t keeping track at all, so I was like, ‘No way.’ But I was a little disappointed in myself that night because I thought I was pretty lacking on defense.” It’s that type of attitude that has helped Mascarello stand out during a building year for the Braves, who lost 11 of their first 14 games. Whetstone has five underclassmen in key roles under first-year coach Scott Radde and hasn’t won on the court since beating Village Academy 57-29 on Nov. 30. The Braves picked up a forfeit win Dec. 28

at the Gilead Christian Holiday Tournament when Cleveland Heights Lutheran East did not show up for the consolation game. Whetstone squandered a 20point lead in a 58-52 loss to Linden-McKinley on Jan. 11. Mascarello is perhaps the brightest hope for a respectable finish to this season as well as to the future. The Braves will lose four seniors at season’s end, but only Haley Buskirk and Brittney Wilson have been key players. Mascarello, who has been averaging 12 points, is new to Columbus City Schools after attending Calumet Christian from kindergarten through eighth grade. Calumet Christian doesn’t have a high school and doesn’t have athletics, but Mascarello has been playing at the AAU level for several years. “I grew up in a private school, and people told me that things would be a lot different (at See BRAVES, page A6

EAGLES Continued from page A5 The Golden Bears defeated Watterson 62-58 last season. “We’re playing a challenging schedule and Upper Arlington’s another undefeated team that’s going to be a great challenge for us,” Lombardo said. “Sullivan is an outstanding shooter who can hurt you badly. But the thing that makes them tough is they have a number of kids who can shoot it well and defend.” Dunlay and Max Bordine both returned to the lineup from injury against DeSales. Dunlay had missed six games and Bordine had missed five. With his team getting back to full strength, Lombardo said the Eagles are going to use their final seven regular-season games to prepare for the Division II district tournament. Watterson won district titles the past

ULREY Continued from page A5 side 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 Division 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

Classic. With the win, Gahanna remained undefeated. GIRLS Newark’s Paige Cashin had 21 points and 11 rebounds to lead the Wildcats past Gahanna 51-45 on Jan. 21.

lesson from its 54-51 loss to Beechcroft on Jan. 18. Trailing 42-27 after three quarters, the Braves rallied to make it close behind an attack that featured solid defense and rebounding. That same formula helped them win seven consecutive games between Dec. 20 and Jan. 14.

said has been a work in progress. The loss to Beechcroft ended the first round of the City League-North Division schedule for Whetstone, which has five games remaining to improve its record before the Division I district tournament draw on Feb. 13. “We were kind of limping to some of those wins because we had a lot of turnovers in them,” Arway said. “Even though we were winning games, the sloppiness was setting us up for one of those games, and Beechcroft is a lot better than they were in November. “We’re still the same group of guys who really got it done down in Dayton (in winning the Dayton Northridge Holiday Tournament on Dec. 29 and 30). We’ll have a better idea of who we are next week at this time.”

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 privateschool 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. Paid Advertising 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.

Whetstone),” Mascarello said. “But I’m getting along with everyone really well. The coach has been doing a good job. At the beginning of the season we struggled a lot, but the last few games we’ve been playing more as a team. “This is my first public school, and it’s been a lot of fun. It’s a lot bigger than the other school I was at. Calumet Christian only had two hallways in the entire school. There are lots of different cultures here, and I like meeting new people. I think (Whetstone’s) a good school.” Radde has enjoyed Mascarello’s ball-handling and shooting abilities, as well the fact that at 5-foot-8, she’s one of the team’s tallest players. Mascarello, who has been seeing some action at point guard, made four 3-pointers in the loss to Beechcroft and had made 15 3s through 14 games. “She’s going to be asked to do a lot of things as a freshman,” Radde said. “She created a lot of mismatches with her ball-handling and her size. She’s played some point guard and some center all in the same game. “It’s nice to have a player of her caliber who can (complement) what Haley, Symiah (Campbell) and some of the others can do. She’s big for our program.” •Boys basketball coach Kevin Arway believes his team might have gained a valuable

New Salvi’s Bistro serves popular old favorites If you’re a fan of well-made Italian-American comfort food served in absurdly generous portions and sold at very fair prices, then you might know about Salvi’s. Better than any national chain in the same hospitality game, the locally grown Salvi’s has been pleasing Columbusites in different guises for more than four decades. Once dotting the city with popular eateries, Salvi’s legacy was down to its last outpost in Hilliard until recently. Open since early November, the latest Salvi’s venture replaces a Dublin space formerly occupied by an upscale steakhouse chain called Stony Ridge. This new Salvi’s is a casually handsome place in a predominantly polished dark-brown wood, lodge-like fashion. Open and roomy, it includes a duskily lit and comfy bar in its handful of dining areas. It’s fre-

MENU by G.A. Benton quently populated by big groups of revelers and young couples out on dates. The food you’ll get here won’t have you rethinking your ideas about Italian-American cuisine. But it’ll likely have you thinking you should pop in more often. Similarly, while the smallish wine list won’t thrill or excite, it contains familiar and reliable labels like Gabbiana, Masi and Antinori. That bubbly old Spanish warhorse, Frexienet, would be a great sipping choice with the insanely gigantic Bistro Sampler ($13).

On the lighter side, the not-bad swordfish ($17) didn’t have much “lime butter” flavor but it did have a nicely grilled character and a pineapple and bell pepper salsa. In a hubristic move, I opted out of the always spot-hitting PastaSalvi for a healthier vegetable medley; it arrived tepid and waterlogged. I passed on dessert because a) I overheard a waiter say the tiramisu was “still frozen” and b) anyone who can eat a sweet after a satisfying and massive Salvi’s dinner is a better glutton than I.

Taco vendor settles into permanent location on Northwest Side Carlos Nonato is part of the vibrant taco-truck culture on the West Side. The business, understandably, is weather dependent. And, naturally, the elements take their toll on even the sturdiest of operators, he said. “Outside is hard – the cold, rain,” he said. And while he’s not trading in his mobile stand on Sullivant Avenue, Nonato has opened a permanent restaurant, Taqueria Los Gauchos, at 5221 Godown Road on the Northwest Side. The laidback eatery offers counter-order service. Alcohol is not sold. The main attraction is the al pastor – thinly sliced pork piled on a skewer and cooked on a vertical rotisserie. The pork is sliced and quickly grilled. In the Mexican tradition, it is placed on a corn tortilla (flour is another option) with cilantro and chopped onion. There are other taco fillings, as well as other entrée choices, such as burritos, quesadillas, fajitas and such. Of course, house-made salsa is served on the side. Nonato said he doesn’t hold back the heat with his signature choice, made of habanero peppers. Even the next level, salsa rojo, is spicy, while the guacamole is mild. Taqueria Los Gauchos (pronounced wah-chos), is open for lunch and dinner daily. For more information, call 614-538-0211. Dough slinger Patrick Miller has taken over the Flying Pizza

Patrons attend the opening day of Taqueria Los Gauchos, 5221 Godown Road, on Jan. 20. The restaurant focuses on inexpensive Mexican fare, including tacos, burritos, tortas and quesadillas.

on Bethel Road. The restaurant, which has been closed for several weeks, will reopen tomorrow after a renovation project. Known as “Pizza Patt” in the pie-tossing community, Miller said the recipe is the same but the topping options have expanded to include bacon, ham, pineapple, jalapenos and such, plus the addition of white-sauce pizzas. Miller bought the Flying Pizza on OSU campus two years ago from Joe Graci, who retired. Graci’s son, Sal, ran the Bethel

Center location until the recent sale. Frank Graci, a relative and owner of the original store in Dayton, is Miller’s partner in the Bethel store. Miller said he made the quarter finals in the trick-pizza-tossing competition on America’s Got Talent and participates at annual conventions in Las Vegas and Italy. Flying Pizza is known for its thin- and thick-crust pies and bythe-slice options. The lunch special, two slices of cheese and a 16ounce pop for $5 ($5.50 for pepperoni), remains.

Miller said he has resisted the urge to put more than pizza on the menu. “We do one thing and do it right,” he said. For more information, call 614457-2323.

Sinus infections can be frequent 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, mucousthinning medications called mucolytics, and some allergy medications such as anti-his-

tamines. In a small percentage of children, surgery may be necessary to relieve the blockage and open the sinuses or nasal passages. Prior to any surgery, a thorough workCHARLES up is necessary in order ELMARAGHY 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.
