Disabilities levy OK’d; 911 levy coming By MICHAEL J. MAURER ThisWeek Community Newspapers For more than an hour on Jan. 26, the Delaware County commissioners discussed the merits of various options to pay for the county’s unified 911 emergency services, projected to require $21million to upgrade and operate during the next five years. Also at the meeting, commissioners

approved a May levy for the county board of developmental disabilities in the amount of 2.1 mills for five years. The levy would raise $13.7-million over five years and would cost the owner of a $100,000 home $64.31 annually. Officials were surprised in November when a proposed 911 levy failed. “That was the first time ever a 911 levy had failed (in the city),” said city manager Tom Homan, asking the commis-

sioners to act with unanimous support. “We don’t want to see that happen again.” Commissioner Ken O’Brien, who is often the sole dissenting vote against spending measures, said he would prefer that a proposed 0.75-mill levy be broken into two parts, a 0.45-mill renewal and a 0.3-mill increase — but he said he would join his fellow commissioners in supporting this levy. Commissioner Dennis Stapleton spoke

for more than five minutes about how voters in Ohio and nationwide sent a strong message that they no longer will be fooled by separate tax votes for popular services while other government services are not held under the available budget. He said he would support the levy. Commissioner Tommy Thompson said Delaware should have the “finest 911 service in the country,” and that he would

support the levy. Powell police chief Gary Vest, chairman of the county 911 board, agreed that taxes are too high but the 911 levy is needed. With a Feb. 2 deadline looming for the May ballot, the commissioners appeared well on their way to approve the proposed 0.75-mill levy. See DISABILITIES LEVY, page A2

Dominion reduces planned condos

10 percent, as Delaware County auditor George Kaitsa has said. It also argued that “voters are looking very carefully at any government activity which would raise taxes,” the report said The union said the township needs to collect revenue for the position of an officer working at the school. It also said that the police might be funded by the general fund, not just by the police levy that “passed by a large margin.” The 3.8-mill five-year police levy passed by a vote of 2,888 to 1,729 in May 2010. Gardner recommended “a 2-percent wage increase in 2011 and a 2percent wage increase in 2012,” the

Delaware City Council on Jan. 24 approved changes to the Dominion Homes development on Cheshire Road, the Communities at Glenross, that will reduce the number of condominiums planned for the area and substitute single-family homes. Although council member Lisa Keller expressed concern that the single-family lot sizes of 65 feet would lead to lower-value homes than the singlefamily lot sizes of 75 to 80 feet that had previously been approved, council approved the changes by a 6-1 vote. City officials said Dominion requested the change, which is designed to meet the current market demand. City planning and development director Dave Efland said the two major developments on Cheshire Road ultimately could account for almost 5 percent of the city’s population. “The goal is to try to continue the development in Reserves of Glenross, which has picked up in 2010, and getting going in the Communities at Glenross, the sister development to the east,” Efland said. “Dominion Homes has been in the forefront of development in these subdivisions, going back to the Parade of Homes (in 2005). Together, both of these developments are about 700 acres, 1,500 dwellings. Together they will represent about 4.5 percent of our population in our city today. These are major, major developments that we have made a major commitment in infrastructure.” The primary changes to the new plans would reduce the number of condominiums from 246 units to 180 units, and add 118 single-family homes. Efland said the changes to smaller lot sizes were not as significant as maintaining design continuity in the new development. “The two lot sizes at Reserves at Glenross and Communities at Glenross become similar to each other,” Efland said. “Reserves is still a little bit bigger lots, a little bit bigger homes, a little bit higher prices, Communities at Glenross is a little bit smaller lots, a little bit smaller homes and a little bit less in price.” Efland said community meetings had been held and many residents understand that changing con-

Police union talks with Genoa stalled By BONNIE BUTCHER ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Negotiations between Genoa Township and its police union have stalled for a second time since they began last summer. At a special meeting Jan. 26, Genoa Township trustees unanimously rejected a fact-finder’s report for the police union contract which expired Dec. 31. The township declined to comment on the negotiations, but the fact finder’s report shows the “parties disagreed on the issues of wages and insurance.” The township and union agree on the other points of the contract, the report says. In November, the State Employ-

ment Relations Board (SERB) appointed fact-finder Joseph Gardner. On Jan. 7, Gardner met with both parties, who presented their stands on the two points of disagreement. His Jan. 20 report gives recommendations for each contested point. Regarding wages, the report says the union is arguing for a 3-percent increase for each year of the twoyear contract. Since 2005, officers’increases have averaged 4.3 percent, the report says, The township wants wage increases of 1 percent for the first year of the contract and 1.5 percent for the second. “SERB data shows the average increases for all Ohio township police departments in 2011 ... is 2.7 per-

cent,” the report says. However, the union compared pay for the township officers to that of neighboring police forces and said that “Genoa Township officers earn approximately 88.5 percent of the average pay of neighboring police units.” The township said that for 200609, “The wage increases . . . have exceeded the average percent increases statewide,” the report shows. The union also wanted to see the percentage of pay differential between ranks increased to 10 percent from its current 8 percent. The township did not want to see that changed. The township argued it could see a loss of tax revenue if property values decrease by the projected 5 to

AEP to reimburse County OKs contract to ensure healthy bees Sunbury $20,000 By BONNIE BUTCHER

ThisWeek Community Newspapers

American Electric Power said it has overcharged Sunbury village more than $20,000 since 2005 for rented streetlights. An AEP representative told village administrator Dave Martin on Jan. 21 that AEP will credit Sunbury $20,201 over the next few years. “The credit, I’m assuming, will appear on our next bill,” Martin said. Martin said village council members asked AEP representatives for a list of all electric bills

in December 2009 to determine the total electric charges. Because of high bills, Martin said, “We started the review process to look and see if something was wrong.” Martin said council also received a list of streetlights that Sunbury rented from AEP. “We pay $6 a month to rent certain street lights (per light) and they provide the electricity to them. They come out and replace the bulbs when they burn out. If the light falls over they put it back up. That’s what the $6 a month buys

are, provides outreach and provides information to beekeepers on how to protect their colonies.” Ware said the bee inspection program has been active for as long as anyone can remember, at least since before he joined the department in 1993. “This has been true at least for 20 years and before then,” Ware said. “The department when I joined was very concerned with the health of bee populations throughout the state.” In 2009, the last year for which data have been compiled, Delaware County showed 28 diseased hives. Beekeepers are given training and information to minimize such infections. “Having this information is helpful for the state to be able to combat these issues,” O’Brien said.

Delaware County commissioners on Jan. 24 renewed an annual $5,000 contract with the county apiarist, to ensure the local bee population remains healthy. “It’s routine county business, but it’s one of those issues that is important because of the pollination of the crops, fruits and nuts and vegetables and such,” said commissioner Ken O’Brien. “People take it for granted, but there are several diseases that go around that affect the colonies. That could affect our food supply if it was not taken care of.” O’Brien said Delaware County has the second largest beehive population in Ohio. “Out of 145 apiaries in the county, last year (the apiarist) inspected 136 of them, with 685 colonies in those inspected api-

aries,” O’Brien said. “Pickaway County had 834 inspected, but other than that, he had the second most of all the 88 counties.” Ohio Department of Agriculture spokesman Andy Ware said the state asks counties to appoint an apiarist and to report the inspection results. Beekeepers are required to register beehives for inspection. Ware said he would not call county apiarists and registration mandates; no penalties exist for failing to comply with the request. “If you have a colony, you are expected to register with the state, in large part because bees are so vital for pollination for so many different needs,” Ware said.” That’s why there are these protections in place. There are so many different diseases impacting honeybee populations. It’s a health program that identifies where problem areas

Galena council OKs financial options By JENNIFER BOYTAR ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Village of Galena officials voted Monday to hire financial counsel and refinance some village debt. Council members heard from Paul Rutter of Bricker and Eckler, and Dave Conley and Emily Cannon of Robert W. Baird, who presented information on financing options available to the village regarding the former Galena United Methodist Church now

owned by the village. Conley recommended the village pursue short-term, one-year financing until interest rates for municipalities drop and a longerterm note can be financed. “The interest rates are high,” Conley said, “and this is not the best time for a long-term bond. We can do another one-year financing as the short-term interest rates are very attractive.” That note also would include funds for renovations to the build-

ing. Council members voted to hire Bricker and Eckler to shop for the one-year note and passed an ordinance authorizing up to $400,000 for the new note. Council also voted to apply for an Ohio Water Development Authority long-term loan that would be used to pay for the purchase of the wastewater treatment plant, bought from Delaware County. The 30-year loan is for about $546,000 and, if granted, is not

subject to refinancing. Should OWDA not grant the loan, the village passed an ordinance to retire the current debt and reissue another note. The council also voted to approve a 25-percent increase in sewer fees, effective Feb. 1. This increases residential rates from $40.45 to $50.56 per month or $151.68 per quarter. Delaware County Friends of the Trail representative Mary Kerr spoke to council.

Kerr is in the process of writing a grant application through the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Clean Ohio Trails Fund for about $488,000. The monies would be used to construct a trail from Dustin Road to the Galena Brick Trail. Council voted to approve the application, contribute funds not to exceed $11,000, and agreed to maintain the trail upon completion should the village be awarded the grant.

Disabilities levy OK’d; 911 levy coming Continued from page A1 The commissioners asked assistant county prosecutor Aric Hochstettler to draft three options for consideration Monday: A full 0.75-mill levy, and both separate 0.45-mill and 0.3-mill levies. “I think people have reached a tipping point with taxes,” Stapleton said. “There’s a lot of money there. It’s our responsibility. That’s why they put us here: to allocate the dollars in the right way.”

Stapleton said arguing that taxes must increase because a service is necessary might no longer be an option. “I would argue that this county has the $21-million (required over five years),” Stapleton said. “ The answer in my mind is, it’s not always more levies.” County administrator Tim Hansley said the 911 board needs steady funding, not uncertain funding approval each year. “They would like to have some certainty that it’s not going to be

every year,” Hansley said. “One option might be to fund the 0.45mill and then fund the difference through some other dedicated part of the sales tax or whatever you come up with.” Because the tax levy process requires two approvals — beginning with a certification by the auditor, followed by a certification by the board of elections — commissioners said they would hold an extended meeting Jan. 31 to ensure both approvals could be achieved by the Feb. 2 filing dead-

line. “As a commissioner, my intent was to support what the 911 levy committee said, and I’m prepared to do that,” Stapleton said. “But

dominiums to single-family homes was desirable. “It’s better in a relative and real world sense, no matter what the unit is, to have that (single-family detached unit) across from you than from a valuation and similar use standpoint than to have 246 condominium units across from you,” Efland said. Keller challenged the minimum lot size and minimum square foot size for homes, saying that builders often promise large homes and then build smaller ones. “I live in a neighborhood where we were told when we moved in that these are the (minimum) deed restrictions, but that was not what was being built,” Keller said. “That does not necessarily mean that five or 10 years down the road this is going to be honored. If you can’t sell $250,000 houses, then

why not go down to 1,800 (square feet) if that’s what the deed restrictions allow? That’s what’s happened in my neighborhood. They’re going down to the lowest that the deed restrictions will allow.” City manager Tom Homan said it was important that the city make the changes to promote the development. “I don’t know what the other options are, from the city’s standpoint,” Homan said. “I’m concerned because the city has spent a lot of public dollars in infrastructure that has a financing mechanism, so we have investment to protect as well.” Homan said the market has changed with the economy and some projects are being abandoned in other locations around the region. “It’s an imperfect resolution,” Homan said. “But it’s one consistent with the overall thrust of what we’re trying to do out there, which is creating a move-up level of home in this area.”

us,” he said. Sunbury decommissioned dozens of streetlights in 2005, when the village started a streetscape project. “We put in a new sidewalk and put in ornamental street lights,” Martin said. Council member Bill Metzler went to all rented lights around the village and found AEP was charging Sunbury for lights not in use. “That’s for street lights that apparently were removed during the streetscape but we continued to

be charged for them,” Martin said. Martin said the village receives multiple electric bills, which made it harder to tell if AEP was overcharging Sunbury. “It’s like a giant jigsaw puzzle,” Martin said. “The street lights in one end of town come from one bill, the center of town is on a different bill and the north end of the village comes from a different bill.” At its council meeting two days earlier on Jan. 19, Martin told council that an AEP representative told him to expect a reimbursement of $10,800, which would be a $300 credit per month for three years.

Council told Martin it wanted to make sure Sunbury gets credit for exactly what it overpaid. “I already asked for and received December’s (2010) bills to form a good baseline,” Metzler said. “I want to also check the math.” When Martin talked to an AEP representative on Jan. 21,AEP told him the reimbursement jumped up to $20,201. “It’s hard to say it’s this, this or this without some type of documentation,” Martin said. Martin says he’s still waiting to receive paperwork from AEP showing the exact amount overpaid.

By BONNIE BUTCHER ThisWeek Community Newspapers Twenty emergency personnel from five area departments braved frigid temperatures Jan. 22 to practice ice rescue. The Genoa Township Fire Department held the training session with personnel from the Tri-Township Fire Department, Delaware County Sheriff’s Office, Westerville Fire Department and Delaware County Dive Team, said Genoa Township fire chief Gary Honeycutt. Training was held in a classroom and in Hoover Reservoir at Red Bank Harbor. “This is a special training session that is ice-rescue specific,” said Genoa Lt. Andrew Spitler. In addition to ice training, the township’s

water rescue teams train every Monday. Water rescuers have to be skilled scuba divers, no matter what the weather conditions, Honeycutt said. “The importance of this training is to become comfortable in cold water, to gain confidence in diving under an ice shelf, and to train for a quick and safe ice rescue response for when an incident arises,” Honeycutt said. “Ice rescue differs from warmer season water rescue mainly due to the colder climates. We wear thermal liners under our dive suits and ice rescue suits in the winter,” Spitler said. The Genoa department has 13 full-time ice rescue divers and at least three divers available for immediate response at any given time, Honeycutt said. “Sub-surface diving is a very specialized rescue discipline, particularly in this area due

to the black water conditions. ... Divers are unable to see their hands in front of their faces just 5 feet under water. This means that all rescues are performed by systematic search patterns and the sense of touch. This type of rescue takes multiple hours of training to perfect. Not only the diving portion but the communication necessary to complete the patterns,” Honeycutt said. Along with the initial training, the township fire department has invested 3,359 hours into ice and water rescue training, Honeycutt said. Honeycutt and Spitler warn that there is “no such thing as 100 percent safe ice.” Ice must be at least four inches thick to walk on. It must be five inches thick for snowmobiles and all-terrain vehicles, and 8 to 12 inches thick for cars and small trucks, they said.

My dream?

To make a difference. To be a nurse.

GENOA Continued from page A1 report said. The township wants the police employees to contribute to their health insurance deductible. The township currently pays the full amount. The township wants the employee to pay $200 for single coverage and $400 for family coverage in 2011, $300 for single coverage and $600 for family coverage in 2012, $400 for single coverage and $800 for family coverage in 2013, the report says. The township currently pays $1,200 for the single coverage and the $2,400 for family coverage. The township incurred a 27percent insurance renewal increase in 2010, the report said.

The township said if the employees contribute to the deductible, they would be more “consumer-minded about their health spending.” The union wants to continue with the township paying the full deductible, and Gardner agreed, the report said. Gardner also said the township should develop a labor-management insurance committee that could help with shopping for better insurance rates, educating the members about rising health care costs and reporting on what insurance uses could be driving up health care costs. The stall negotiation process will return to SERB. The township is negotiating separately with both the police and fire bargaining units. Both contracts expired Dec. 31.

Award given, then renamed

Just thinking

Rachel Robinson, the widow of Major League Baseball’s Jackie Robinson, was honored Jan. 27 with Ohio Wesleyan University’s Branch Rickey Award, given for her “exceptional personal contribution and commitment to the goal of full equality for all,” according to information from OWU. After the ceremony, OWU president Rock Jones announced that the award was being renamed the “Branch Rickey-Jackie Robinson Award presented by Ohio Wesleyan University.” Robinson, who was unable to attend the ceremony, sent a taped message to share with the crowd. In it, she thanked OWU for the honor and said, according to a news release, “Jack and Branch were a daring couple. The extraordinary partnership between them not only led to important social changes in America, but also became a rich example of what we, as people, can accomplish when we allow ourselves to trust each other and fight together.” Branch B. Rickey, Rickey’s grandson, who helped to create the Rickey Award in 1988, attended the ceremony. Both grandfather and grandson were OWU alumni, graduating in 1904 and 1967, respectively. After the ceremony, Rickey presented a lecture titled “More than Sport: The Branch Rickey-Jackie Robinson Legacy.”

In Hocking Hills: we are encouraged to conserve water and use our towels more than once. At home: we conserve water and we certainly use our towels more than once. Not that we were unable to distinguish any differences between our getaway cottage and our own house. The differences were threefold: 1. We didn’t bring the dog, which allowed us to sleep longer than his bladder usually dictates; 2. We didn’t prepare our own meals, which allowed us to eat quiche and butternut squash ravioli instead of something that, well, wasn’t quiche and butternut squash ravioli. And 3, having distanced ourselves from whatever we should have been doing at home, we were free to do almost nothing, which in this case turned out to involve reading the entries in the journals that are so often placed in lodgings like these. The first page of the journal usually is filled by the innkeeper, who encourages guests to share their experiences with others. What follows is a mixture of styles and expressions. Some peo-

ple praise the silence and the isolation, using phrases such as “relax and renew” and “quiet beauty of the woods.” MARGO Some throw BARTLETT their backs out striving for poignant simplicity: “I was happy here.” One guest described rediscovering her love for her husband, then went on to transcribe, in tiny cursive, a long series of biblical passages, with citations that took up most of the left margin. How she managed to rediscover anything besides writer’s cramp before checkout time remains a mystery. Many guests wrote the name of the inn vertically on the page, then found words for each letter: Comfort. Elegant dinners. Downtime. I usually stopped reading two or three letters in, thus protecting my sensibilities from contrived entries such as “Really nice” or “Feels good to relax and renew.” A final subset of journal writers includes those who came to the woods to frolic. These are the people who speak in coy euphemisms, the most popular of which is “if you know what I mean.” “If you know what I mean” can make even the most innocent comment sound salacious, like something you’d never say to your grandmother. “I came here to enjoy the quiet beauty of the woods, if you know what I mean.” Many of these writers — nearly all of them are female — follow that up with little smiley faces, which in my mind, anyway, translate to ladylike snickers. If you know what I mean. Others don’t bother to be discreet. In another journal, in another cottage on another getaway, my husband and I read entries out loud off and on all weekend, our horror at the revelations mixed with a sort of grisly fascination: “Me and my boyfriend just loved the hot tub …” “We came here to

celebrate the end of finals week and boy oh boy …” The entry that made specific mention of the kitchen table was the one that ended the game. I’m not sure we didn’t throw the journal down to go scrub our hands. Hot tubs, by the way, have somehow become synonymous with “Hocking Hills getaway.” Most resorts both have them and flaunt them as the best if not the only way to truly appreciate the quiet beauty of the woods. After reading that last journal, my husband and I vowed never to put so much as a toe in a hot tub again, and the fact that the inn we recently visited doesn’t have them was a huge factor in our decision to go there. Eeuw. If you know what I mean. Our inn did have whirlpool baths, along with showers and all the other amenities, and wherever water ran were posted neatly printed and framed warnings. “You’re in the country now,” each one began. Explanations of hard water, well water, septic tanks and dual-flush arrangements followed. Most were old news to us. “Isn’t it strange that we get away

by leaving the country and the quiet and the stars to come here, where it’s country and quiet and starry?” my husband said. We agreed that we ought to schedule our getaways in Manhattan, where it’s urban and noisy and glaringly illuminated.

Then we smiled and looked at the sky. The Big Dipper was up there. You’d think we never left home. Margo Bartlett is a ThisWeek staff writer. E-mail her at mbartlett@t

LoParo leaves Pacers, takes Bradley job By BRAD EMERINE ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Delaware Hayes High School is searching for a football coach. Mike LoParo notified athletics director Clint Fetty and principal Brad Faust on Jan. 25 that he would resign at the end of the school year to accept the football coaching position at Hilliard Bradley. LoParo met with his players on the morning of Jan. 26 to explain his decision. He lives in Hilliard and his wife teaches at Bradley.

“It’s not football related at all,” said LoParo, who also resigned his position as a social studies teacher. “I wanted them to understand that. My children go to school in Hilliard and will be starting to play sports soon. It would be very tough for me to be here and there in the future.” LoParo guided the Pacers to a 16-15 record in three seasons, including the program’s only Division I playoff appearance in 2008. That season, the Pacers went 7-4 and lost to Pickerington Central 38-21 in the first round of the postseason.

Delaware finished 3-7 last fall, including 2-5 in the OCC-Capital Division. LoParo will replace Ted Wierzbicki, who was 5-15 overall and 1-12 in the OCC-Capital in Bradley’s first two seasons. “This is just a bittersweet situation,” LoParo said. “I’ve loved it here, but I think I have to go. I’ve struggled with the decision for days and I even struggled to go through the process at Bradley.” LoParo thinks that the success Delaware enjoyed in his three-year stay

will help the program land a quality coach. “There is a bright future here,” he said. “The freshman class is special, and there will be a strong coach here because of the talent and the great support from the parents and community. That’s the one thing I think makes the decision easier. The program is in much better shape now than when I took over.” Hayes is looking for its eighth coach in program history, but fourth since 2003. Past coaches have included Jerry Cornell (1961-80), Darrell Mayne (198184), Dave Brown (1985-91), Mike Mar-

shall (1992-2002), Brian Staats (2003), Jamie Masi (2004-07) and LoParo (2008-10). “We’re sorry to see him go,” Fetty said. “He did some great things with this program during his three years, helping us get to the next level.” Fetty said the position will be posted internally and across the state. Candidates will interview with a search committee that will include students, staff, parents and community members.

Big Walnut Roundup

Newman out for season for girls By PATRICK DOLAN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

They’re important games for us because second place is within our grasp and we want to build some momentum and be playing well as we get closer to the (Division IV district tournament).

Big Walnut High School girls basketball coach Bob Scott feared the worst when Alexis Newman injured her right knee during a 50-23 win over visiting Watkins Memorial in an OCC-Capital Division game on Jan. 21. Five days later, his fears were realized when an MRI revealed that Newman, a 5-foot-7 sophomore guard, had torn her ACL and meniscus and, as a result, would miss the rest of the season. A first-year varsity player, Newman averaged 11.6 points in 14 games, ranking second on the team in scoring. “She was averaging about 11 points a game, so anytime you take that out of your lineup, that hurts you,” Scott said. “Other kids have to step up and score some points. We have to keep working on that.” Senior guard Tabatha Piper was leading the team in scoring through 15 games, averaging 13.3 points. Junior guard Kayleigh Hammond was third at 5.4 points, followed by sophomore guardforward Emily Chucta (5.2), senior guard Jazmine Reed (3.8), senior guard Julia Evans (3.3), junior forward Megan Walters (3.1) and junior guard Calen Williams (2.9). “That’s definitely a big loss,” Piper said of Newman. “She’s normally scoring for us. Alexis and I kind of balanced each other. When she would score, I would score. We’re working on (having other players score) in practice, having people step up. We just have to have confidence, and I believe in them and I think they can do it.” Newman dropped to the court when she felt pain in her knee. “I drove to the basket, jumpstopped and pivoted around to pass to Megan Amos when it happened,” she said. Newman, who scored a season-high 21 points in a 55-53 loss to Upper Arlington on Jan. 15, is scheduled to undergo surgery Feb. 8. In addition to the rest of this season, she will miss her AAU season in the spring but is expected to be ready for the Golden Eagles’ 2011-12 season. “In four months, I can start running again,” she said. “In six months, I can start playing again.” In the meantime, Newman will do what she can to support her teammates. “I’m definitely going to be the their No. 1 cheerleader,” she said. With Newman watching from the bench, Big Walnut likely saw its quest for its first OCC-Capital championship since 1997 end with a 59-34 loss at Olentangy Orange on Jan. 25. The loss dropped the Golden Eagles three games behind Orange in the league standings with four league games to play. Big Walnut also lost to the Pioneers 58-30 on Dec. 10. “I think the closest anyone (in the OCC-Capital) has been against

Hayes Roundup

Boys look to build on signature win By BRAD EMERINE ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Delaware Hayes High School boys basketball coach Jordan Blackburn is hoping that a victory over Mount Vernon on Jan. 25 might be the one the Pacers needed in order to gain confidence when playing against the better teams on their schedule. Entering the OCC-Capital Division contest, Mount Vernon was 9-3 and Delaware had not beaten a team with a winning record. The Pacers’ wins had come against teams with a combined 2868 record and their losses were to teams

that had a combined 54-11 record. One thing is for sure, the 71-37 dismantling of the host Yellow Jackets will be a memorable one for all involved. “We needed to beat a good team because losing close games to good teams in the final minute hurts our confidence. No more moral victories. We needed this,” Blackburn said. Senior Braxton Coleman, who was 9for-9 from the floor for 18 points, scored Delaware’s first eight points as the Pacers raced to a 17-4 lead after one quarter. It was 32-15 by halftime and 58-30 after three quarters. “Coach reminded me that I had played

Mount Vernon three times in my life and I hadn’t done much against them,” Coleman said. “He told me they wouldn’t remember who I was. But I think tonight they know who I am.” After a round of “Happy Birthday” echoed out of the boisterous locker room, Blackburn said he couldn’t envision a better birthday gift. “This is pretty special,” Blackburn said. “They made sure I wouldn’t forget my 30th birthday anytime soon.” Delaware shared the ball extremely well, as it recorded 18 assists on its 30 field goals. Many of Coleman’s baskets, especial-

ly in the first quarter, came off nice assists as the Pacers shredded the Yellow Jackets’ zone defense. “(Mount Vernon) didn’t think I was much of a threat and seemed to play off me,” Coleman said. “But when you have (Matt Bingaya and Mike Wells) out there doing their things, it opens the floor up. It led to easy baskets for me tonight.” Bingaya had six assists, to go with his game-high 22 points and 12 rebounds. He made buzzer-beating 3-pointers to end the first and third quarters. Wells had 14 points and four assists. Jacob Bosiokovic See PACERS, page A8

ThisWeek Community Newspapers on-the-ball defender we have

The Delaware Christian School boys basketball team has rebounded from its holiday blues. After opening 3-0, the Eagles lost six of their next seven games from Dec. 14 through Jan. 8 to fall to 4-6 overall. However, they defeated Torah Academy 69-43 in a non-league game on Jan. 24 for their third consecutive win. “We had a 10-day break in the schedule after Jan. 8, plus it was a good part of the schedule and we took advantage of that,” coach Kevin Quist said. “We’re getting good scoring from Jeremy Glick and Hughie Kerins, Luke McGrath has been a monster on the boards of late and we have many guys stepping up on the defensive end. “Pete Kerins has been fan-

and he’s getting into opponents’ faces and forcing turnovers or making it difficult for them to run their offense.” Glick, who has averaged 13.6 points and 5.8 rebounds through 13 games, scored 16 in a 75-36 win over Madison Christian on Jan. 18. He had 20 points in a 63-60 win over Grove City Christian on Jan. 22 and scored 14 against Torah Academy. McGrath had 10 rebounds against Madison Christian and 11 against Grove City Christian. Hughie Kerins was averaging 10.6 points and Ryan Zinn was at 9.1 through 13 games. Delaware Christian is in third place in the MOCAL at 4-3, two games behind first-place Tree of Life.

Jan. 26, handing the Trojans their first league loss since 2006-07 and only their second since the inception of the MOCAL in 2001. The Eagles will play host to Fairfield Christian on Tuesday, Feb. 1, before playing at Gahanna Christian on Feb. 8 and

at Tree of Life on Feb. 11. “We’ll find out who we are with those three MOCAL games in a 10-day stretch,” Quist said. “We lost close games to Fairfield (73-68 on Dec. 17) and Gahanna (74-66 on Dec. 11), but we feel we can beat them.

EAGLES Continued from page A7 them is eight points, so the chances of anyone beating them the second time around (in league play) aren’t very good,” Scott said. “That’s the bottom line. “Orange is probably the best team we’ve played this year. They’ve got size, they’ve got shooters, they’ve got good ballhandlers, so they’re tough to match up against.” In the Jan. 25 matchup, Big Walnut led 13-6 after the first quarter, but the Pioneers rallied to take a 26-20 lead into halftime. Orange pulled away in the third quarter by outscoring the Golden Eagles 22-9. Big Walnut went without a field goal during a stretch lasting more than six minutes in the second half. “It’s tough matching up with their post players, and they can shoot the ball,” Scott said of Orange. “We tried to take away their inside game, and for a half we didn’t give up transition layups and we did take (their post players) away. For whatever reason, at the beginning of the third quarter, we kind of lost it. They started scoring transition baskets and we got out of sync a little bit. That’s where we lost the game.” “The matchup was hard, but I thought we did a really good job in the first half,” Piper said. “In the second half, we just didn’t score.” Big Walnut has four regularseason games left, followed by the Division II district tournament. The tournament draw will be held Feb. 6. “We’re going to try to win the rest of our games and get ready

Jones made the all-tournament team with a 683 series (222-246-215). “If Josh continues to bowl like that, he could advance as an individual,” Carnahan said. “I think Ray could also make it, as long as he doesn’t over-think every shot, like he sometimes has a tendency to do. Alex is borderline. But I think all of them have the capability to advance.” The girls team was 6-9 before Jan. 28. The Pacers finished 12th of 16 teams competing in the district preview. Although none of the girls had strong performances, Carnahan said a few could advance to district individually.

had eight points, 12 rebounds and seven blocked shots. “We’ve talked about the fact that others are going to have to step up, especially against good teams, because Matt and Mike are going to be double-teamed a lot,” Blackburn said. “When you look at those numbers from Braxton and (Bosiokovic), that’s what we want. I believe in these kids and if we play like that, some pretty special things can happen.” The fast start and continual aggressive nature also led to transition baskets, including a pair of Bingaya dunks. “I think it’s finally sinking in, that if we play with that tenacity and urgency for 32 minutes, we can play with anyone,” Blackburn said. “That was the best four quarters we played consecutively this season. We went through a stretch where we’d fall behind by 10 points against good teams and then play with urgency. Now maybe we’ll play with this urgency all the time.” The Pacers hoped to carry the momentum into a league game Jan. 28 against Watkins Memorial. Entering that game, Delaware shared third place in the league standings with Mount Vernon at 6-3. New Albany was 9-0 and Olentangy Orange was 7-2. Completing the standings were Hilliard Bradley at 4-5, Big Walnut at 36, Franklin Heights at 1-8 and Watkins Memorial at 0-9. The Pacers play their final nonleague game Tuesday, Feb. 1 at Pickerington Central. The Tigers, who were 5-6 overall before Jan. 28, won last year’s meeting 39-38. Delaware will return to league play Friday, Feb. 4 as host to Big Walnut. •The boys and girls bowling teams have not had the best of seasons, but that was expected by coach Steve Carnahan. “Both teams are a young,” Carnahan said. “The boys’ season has been a little rough, but everybody has improved. The one thing I like about them is that we’ve had three different top scorers. We don’t have one guy carrying us. Josh Jones, Ray Getz and Alex Hohe have spread it out. They’ve all had good games and good series.” But inconsistency has plagued the Pacers, who were 5-10 before Jan. 28. Still, the Pacers have hopes of advancing to district when the sectional rolls around Feb. 18. Teams will find out in which of

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.
