Lighting, sign installed at crosswalk By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Dublin continues to look into improvements at a Historic Dublin crosswalk where a pedestrian was killed after being struck by a vehicle in December. Improvements, including additional lighting, were made at the crosswalk at the North High and North Street inter-

section last week, and city staff continues to mull over signs and other modifications to improve safety. The effort comes in the wake of the death of Stephanie Auer, 44, of Columbus. Auer was crossing North High Street shortly before 7 p.m. on Dec. 28 and was struck by a minivan. She died at the Ohio State University Medical Center Dec. 30.

The incident remains under investigation by Dublin police. A petition drive to improve the crosswalk is under way and currently has more than 500 signatures, Christian Toms told Dublin City Council members at a Jan. 24 meeting. “We understand the city has recognized the dangerous nature of this intersection, particularly dangerous to

pedestrians,” Toms said. Toms also thanked city staff for efforts completed so far. Placards were placed in the middle of Historic Dublin crosswalks Jan. 7. “We hope to see this dangerous intersection improved and that any planned changes are executed as soon as possible,” Toms said. Council members received a Jan. 20

staff report on efforts to improve safety at the crosswalk. Options under review for the crosswalk include additional illumination, overhead signs, a motiondetection activated system and the HAWK system. “I think you can be assured that council likewise wants to see a timely soluSee LIGHTING, SIGN, page A2

District purchases 2.3 acres on Coffman Road By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Dublin City Schools purchased 2.3 acres for $235,000 north of the central office on Coffman Road. Dublin school board members on Jan. 24 unanimously approved the purchase of the land at 7060 Coffman Road that previously housed a preschool. A 1,900-square-foot building that has been vacant for some time sits on the land, said public information coordinator Doug Baker. “It need some work, but it’s very structurally sound,” superintendent David Axner told board members last week. The district is not sure exactly what the new building will host, but Axner said the West Bridge Academy on Bridge David Axner Street in Historic Dublin has There’s a possibility seen a lot of two pre-schools could be growth. “There’s a put over there.

The district also has some extra money from See SCHOOL BOARD, page A2

81-member high school robotics team bound for learning, championships By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Robotics can be addictive. At least, that’s what some of the 81 members of the Dublin High School Robotics team think. The team that includes students from Coffman, Jerome and Scioto high schools has been meeting since Jan. 8 when this year’s challenge was issued by FIRST, or For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology, the nonprofit organization that leads the FIRST Lego and robotics leagues for students around the world. Faculty leader Greg King said FIRST does a kickoff each year, an-

nouncing the game robots will play. This year students must build a robot that can place tubes on pegs around a field. A mini-robot that races to climb up a pole is also on the to-do list. “It’s all going to be on a basketball court,” he explained. Last week Dublin’s robotic team, Bad Robots, was concentrating on design and a gear box. The team meets five times a week and has to be finished by Feb. 22, when the robot is shipped to the team’s first competition of the year in Cleveland. “The robot will be about 155 pounds,” King said. “It’ll be five-feet tall in the starting configuration, but will be able to reach (up) 10 feet.”

At the Buckeye Regional in Cleveland, the Bad Robots will face more than 50 teams from Ohio, Canada, Indiana, New York, Pennsylvania and Maryland April 7-9. While most students who participate go onto work in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics ( STEM) field, they get help in the form of mentors from Ohio State University and the community. In fact, King said, the majority of mentors participated in the robotics league when they were in high school. “One is an (alumnus) of the team,” he said of one community mentor. “Most (mentors) have done robotics before… Most of our grads have gone

into STEM fields. That’s the goal of the program. It helps because we send a lot of kids to OSU and they come back to mentor. We can use their expertise and they can train another generation of students.” Coffman junior Lucas Beaufore said he hopes to mentor after he graduates. “If I go to OSU or somewhere that has a team nearby, I’d love to (mentor),” he said. “There’s a high return rate. It’s really hard to leave. We have a guy who was a senior when the team formed who’s still a mentor.” Molly Zemper, a Coffman junior, agreed about the return rate. She’s See ROBOTICS, page A2

Bridge Street corridor plan moves forward $4M St. Brigid By JENNIFER NOBLIT

renovations, expansion finished

ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Dublin City Council checked off another goal on its list of Bridge Street corridor plan objectives this week. Council members, along with members of the Planning and Zoning Commission, Board of Zoning Appeals and Architectural Review Board, met to reach a “common understanding” of the plan and hear from consultants. Dublin began the Bridge Street corridor study in 2009. It is a redevelopment guide of Dublin’s core that extends along state Route 161 from the Sawmill Road area to the U.S. Route 33 and I-270 interchange. The plan, which will likely be realized over the next 20 to 30 years, encourages walkable, mixed-use development.

By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

One of council’s 2010-11 goals is to “complete the Bridge Street corridor plan to provide a vision for the corridor, which will reinforce the city’s long-term competiveness, create a vibrant and walkable environment with a dy-

namic mix of land uses and housing types, and that enhances the city’s long-term sustainability.” City council adopted a vision in October, along with a schedule for studies, code and other details all set to be completed this year.

The Jan. 31 meeting with city commissions was another goal, set to create a “common understanding” among the groups of the Bridge Street corridor plan, said See BRIDGE STREET, page A5

St. Brigid of Kildare Church marked a close construction Jan. 30 when the church was blessed during mass. The church at 7179 Avery Road began the $4-million renovation and expansion project 11 months ago, and Columbus Diocese Bishop Frederick F. Campbell, the Dublin Singers and a bagpipe player helped dedicate the building Sunday. The work that added 4,188 square feet to the church was done on time and on budget, said Sarah Moore, director of development. “We ended up getting it done earlier than we thought. It was on time and on budget,” she said. “It’s really successful. Everyone seems really pleased with the expansion. We went up by 500 seats, but it’s not too overwhelming. It still feels like a See ST. BRIGID OF KILDARE, page A2

Council members last week directed staff to go forward with adding lighting and a graphic based sign. According to community relations director Sandra Puskarcik, the additional lighting was installed by Jan. 27, and the new sign followed. “I think the additional lighting will help, particularly at night,” city engineer Paul Hammersmith said. “It will illuminate the crosswalk and it will identify that that is the place to cross.” Staff is also looking into an automatic detection system “that would eliminate the need for an approaching pedestrian to push the existing button to activate the system,” the staff report said. Paul Hammersmith said an automated system could cause problems, though, such as false activation caused by passing pedestrians and an “ex-

staffing changes, Axner said. “That allows us to do things like this that make a whole lot of sense,” he said. This district closed on the land on Monday and Axner said cleaning up and securing the building is the first responsibility before deciding what the building will be used for. In other school district news, treasurer Stephen Osborne told school board members last week that research on the next operating levy has begun. “With the last levy passed in 2008, we committed it would last for a three-year period which would end in 2011,” he said. “We’re pulling together numbers right now and looking into that. November isn’t that far away … We’re looking at possibly holding that levy and waiting until 2012.” Osborne said the district will talk to stakeholders and community members about a new levy and the timing. “We’re going to be doing that over the next few weeks,” he said. “Dr. Axner and I will bring that to you as time goes on.” A decision to put a levy on this fall’s ballot would have to be made by July, Osborne said, noting that the second and final reading would have to be done by the beginning of August. Board members also approved a calendar for the 2012-13 school year. Axner said 84 percent of district staff preferred the calendar that will have school start on Aug. 27 and end June 5. The year will include a 10-day holiday break in December and a 6-day spring break in late March. Board members also approved a tuition increase for the 201112 school year for the early childhood program. Morning classes in the early childhood program will increase from $100 to $110 and afternoon classes will increase from $125 to $140. Afternoon classes are held five days a week and morning classes four days. Axner said the tuition increase keeps Dublin on an even keel with other programs that range in price from $135 to $200. “We haven’t increased (the cost) in three years,” said Janet Gillig, director of pupil services.

been on the team since her freshman year. “The people are great. It’s fun,” she said. “One of the best things about robotics is after you build it you get to see it work.” It’s only his first year, but junior Dheepak Arumukhom Revi plans to return next year. “I’m learning new things. I’m not from this country. I’m from India, so everything is new. This is a nice experience,” he said. After the Buckeye Regional, the team is also set to go to FIRST Championships at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis, Mo., April 28-30. “They want everybody to go at least every four years to the championships,” King said. The Bad Robots have gotten to go more often, though. “I went to the last nationals (in 2009),” Zemper said. “I always enjoy meeting other teams. It’s all about gracious professionalism.” Teams are professionals, but Beaufore said people do get excited. “It’s not what you would expect. It’s really, really intense,” he said. “I’ve been to sporting events that are more subdued… There are thousands of people there proud to call themselves geeks. You get to meet a lot of people who enjoy what you enjoy.”

ST. BRIGID OF KILDARE was our big celebration though, the re-opening.” While the church was under construction, mass was held in the Robert D. Walter Family Gymnasium, which was opened in 2009. In fact, Moore said, the church has been working on different projects for the past few years. In 2004 Brigid’s Green, which accommodates parking, athletic fields, a concession area and house, was dedicated. A 15,000square-foot pastoral center that houses meeting halls, a nursery, offices and social gatherings was opened in 2007 and the $2-million Walter gym was added in 2009. The construction was all in a 15-year plan on how to best serve the church’s 3,200 families. “We are pretty much wrapped up with building projects. We don’t have much space to ex-

community, it still feels like the same church.” The expansion means 1,500 seats for the sanctuary as well as new men’s and women’s restrooms. The narthex was also expanded and the narthex kitchen was improved. The renovations included cosmetic changes such as stained glass windows, new doors, stone carvings and wood details. “It’s been updated,” Moore said. “The church is 23 years old, so we did some updating.” Jan. 30 was not the first mass in the newly renovated sanctuary, though. Moore said construction was completed in December. “Our first Sunday (in the sanctuary) was Dec. 5 after being closed for a year,” she said. “We hurried to get it open. (Jan. 30)


aggerated” sense of security. “We don’t see it as an effective system if its always false calling,” he told council members Jan. 24. The HAWK system, which stands for high-intensity activated crosswalk, is “similar to a traffic signal, but was developed specifically for pedestrian crossings,” the staff report said. The pedestrian-activated system would include “Walk” and “Don’t Walk” signs for pedestrians as well as flashing and solid red and yellow lights to caution vehicles of pedestrians in the crosswalk. The HAWK system “would provide more guidance for both motorists and pedestrians in the area,” the staff report said. The cost for the system has not yet been determined. Council members directed Hammersmith to continue a look into the HAWK system and its cost.

pand,” Moore said. “We have to pave the parking lot in the spring to finish, but we’ve completed that $6-million project, which was $2-million for the gym and $4-million for the church renovations. We’ve raised $5.2-million. We need just under $800,000 to complete payment on both projects.” St. Brigid of Kildare Parish was established by the Diocese of Columbus in 1987 and mass was held at locations around Dublin until the Our Lady of the Gael Chapel was dedicated in a renovated stable in 1988. St. Brigid of Kildare Church was dedicated in 1991 and the school opened in 1996.

Grand leprechauns

Amoroses given St. Patrick’s Day honor By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

This year’s grand leprechauns had a hand in the start of Dublin’s annual St. Patrick’s Day parade. Dave and Margie Amorose, Dublin residents for more than 40 years, have been involved in the community for many years and will be honored for their work as they kick off the St. Patrick’s Day parade on March 12 as grand leprechauns. “It’s been wonderful,” Margie said of the couple’s involvement in the community. “Dublin is a wonderful community to be involved with. We’ve been doing it for so long. It’s nice to feel like you’re doing something of consequence.” Margie, a founding member of the Dublin Chamber of Commerce and its current executive director, has been involved in more than just the business community. She is on the board of directors for the

Dublin Fund, a member of the Emerald Ball committee and the Dublin A.M. Rotary. She’s also volunteered for the Dublin Education Foundation, United Way and Leadership Dublin. Dave, who served as a Dublin City Council member for 12 years, also boasts years on the finance committee and parks and recreation committee. “Really I served on council because we were involved in so many issues, we just felt it was important to get involved,” he said. “I served on planning and zoning for two years before I came on council so I saw a lot of the green space ordinances.” Even though he lacks an Irish heritage, Dave said he’s always been involved in St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, including the start of Dublin’s. “There wasn’t much to recognize St. Patrick’s Day in Dublin,” he said. “It was a very small event

at the start. It was totally volunteer. Ordinary people got together from all walks of life. The postmaster was involved, there were business owners, anybody who wanted to be involved we welcomed them on board.” This isn’t the first time the longtime Dublin residents have been honored. In 1987 Dave and Margie were grand marshals of the Independence Day celebration, and the Emerald Ball honored them in 1998. “It’s just wonderful. It seems like one great advancement after another. It was just something that has flowed so smoothly,” Dave said. “We never set out to be recognized at this level.” “It has been a pleasure to be involved in all these things,” Margie said. “It just humbles both Dave and I to think we can enter

the ranks of these wonderful people that have been grand leprechauns.” Dave and Margie will lead the March 12 parade that’s set to step off from Metro Center Plaza at 11 a.m. and judge the parade float decorating contest. The Amoroses have two daughters, Jenny Jakse and Chris Groomes, and four grandchildren. For more information on Dublin’s St. Patrick’s Day parade, look online at

Auditor’s office preparing for property reappraisals Wherever I visit, whenever I talk, property owners in Franklin County ask me the same question and nine times out of 10, it is the first question they ask. “The real estate market seems to be struggling,” they start, “so I should expect to see my property taxes go down as well, correct?” I do not particularly like to disappoint people, nor will I ever be dishonest with them. “No matter what happens with the upcoming 2011 reappraisal,” I say, “You should not expect any significant fluctuation in your tax bill.” The Franklin County Auditor’s Office is in the process of reappraising all of the more than 438,000 parcels of property in the county. When we release new values in the middle of this coming summer, homeowners can expect a new fair market value for their homes. We will mail a letter informing owners what our appraisers have estimated the home would sell for if it were to be placed on the open market. Most property owners can expect that their values will be changed. Many people believe that if a new, higher value is established, their tax bill will be increased at a similar percentage to the value increase. Conversely, if the value is lowered, they expect their tax bill to be similarly lower.

Unfortunately, neither assumption is true. Ohio law is designed to protect both taxpayers and taxing jurisCLARENCE dictions during E. MINGO II periods of rapid change in the real estate market. In a rising market, owners’ tax bills do not increase at the same rate as the rise in values and when the values decrease, tax bills do not decrease at the same percentage as the decline in values . House Bill 920 was passed nearly 40 years ago. It protects both owners and taxing jurisdictions through a tax rate adjustment called “the reduction factors.” Any property owner concerned about their 2010 tax bill or the 2011 reappraisal is welcome to call 614-525-HOME (4663) to speak to a member of my staff. I always encourage individuals to research House Bill 920. There is a wealth of information on the Internet that discusses the impact of the bill and most importantly, how the reappraisal will not affect, in any significant measure, how much you pay in property taxes. After values are set later this year, we will set up sites in various communities within the coun-

ty to give residents the opportunity to come in and talk about the value we have tentatively set for their property. If we find we are in error, we can and will make changes to that particular value. Property owners will have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with an appraiser from our office at the “informal reviews.” We always encourage property owners to bring in any information that would help us understand their concerns. We will take a careful look at the information provided by the owner as well as other sources of market information to assure fair and equitable valuations, making changes as appropriate. It’s a very user-friendly process. This summer, every property owner in Franklin County will receive a letter from our office letting them know the proposed new value of their property. We want people to take the value notice seriously and we want them to take advantage of the opportunity to meet with us to discuss that value in the fall of 2011. Pay attention, be watchful, and take advantage of the opportunities to converse with us about values. We will be happy to answer all of your questions. Clarence E. Mingo II is Franklin County auditor.

As it were

Abram was part of an intriguing McDowell family in Civil War era Traveling west across the Broad Street bridge to the Franklinton neighborhood across the Scioto River from downtown Columbus, one will soon encounter a north-south thoroughfare called McDowell Street. This is not a story about ED this street in LENTZ the oldest part of downtown Columbus — the part that dates to 1797. It is about one of the people who gave the street its name. To Civil War buffs, the name of Irvin McDowell will be reasonably well known. After the outbreak of what Southerners always delight in calling “the late unpleasantness” — or more to the point, the “War of Northern Aggression” — the commanding general of America’s armies had a small problem. General Winfield Scott, “Old Fuss and Feathers,” had fought his way through every conflict the United States had seen since the War of 1812. By 1861, he was old, tired and desperately in need of a combat commander. He offered the job to Robert E. Lee, in his view the best soldier in the country, but Lee turned him down — reluctantly but firmly — and fought for the South. Scott turned next to the best soldier from the ranks that he knew: Irvin McDowell. McDowell would lead the Union Army into its first great battle, The Battle of First Manassas if you are a Southerner or

Bridge Street corridor plan moves forward Continued from page A1 Vice Mayor Amy Salay. The meeting meant introductions and short presentation from consultants who will write the zoning code and complete studies. “This is the first collective meeting with consultants and we hope it will not be the last,” said Dana McDaniel, deputy city manager. Don Elliott, of Clarion and Associates, is the project manager for the zoning team and will likely meet the first deadline outlined by the city. “We’ll have a draft done by March 31, ready for discussion,” he said, “not adoption, but discussion.” Council and commission members raised concerns to consultants and Dublin City staff on the project ranging from transporta-

tion to storm water management. Council member Michael Keenan brought up parking concerns, especially in Historic Dublin. “We need to make sure we don’t lose sight of that in the near term,” he said, noting that a parking structure could serve Historic Dublin well.

McDaniel said a parking study is currently in the works that focuses on Historic Dublin and could be ready for presentation at the next council meeting. Marilee Chinnici-Zuercher and Richard Gerber brought up concerns of ensuring green space and parks within the Bridge Street cor-

ridor. “Green space is one of our core values,” Gerber said. Doug Dixon, of consultants Goody Clancy and Associates, said a meeting to mark out greenspace areas within the plan could be set soon. While the plan is expected to

be fulfilled within the next 30 to 40 years, Chinnici-Zuercher said she expects it to be done faster if the plan is done right. Cathy Boring voiced agreement and said the city had an economic development plan completed years ago that consultants said would take 30 years. “They came

back (for an update) and it took 10 years,” she said. Other concerns voiced included working with surrounding communities, sustainability, traffic and density. McDaniel said consultants and city staff will take concerns into account as they move forward.

Abram was part of an intriguing McDowell family Continued from page A4 street in Franklinton its name. I have been intrigued by Abram McDowell since I first came across him a number of years ago. He was one of the first people I had read about locally who did not spell his name the same way Abraham Lincoln spelled his. As it turned out, it was the same name, and many people named their children Abram in those days. But having learned that, I was now even more interested to learn a little bit more about him and the McDowells. Abram McDowell came to central Ohio from Kentucky. He came from a large family of McDowells who had migrated into that state early in its history. His brother John Adair McDowell had come to the new community of Franklinton at the forks of the Scioto and Olentangy Rivers early in its history and had become known as a frontier attorney. He was followed by one of his brothers, Abram, who came to Franklinton in 1818. A number of McDowells pass through Franklinton in those years, but John and Abram are two of the most important.

John developed a successful law practice and served for a time as the Franklin County prosecuting attorney until his death at a relatively early age in 1824. After his death, Abram McDowell became the most significant member of the family in central Ohio. Moving across the river to the newly founded state capital, Abram McDowell became one of the men who made things happen in the new town. Columbus, founded in 1812 to serve as the state capital of Ohio, is a created city in the middle of the new state. Many of its residents came from the North — from communities like Worthington and its residents from Granby, Connecticut. Many more came from the South, from communities in the Virginia Military District to land set aside west of the Scioto River for Virginians who fought in the Revolution. Abram McDowell was one of the southerners. Born in 1791, the year the army of General Arthur St. Clair was virtually annihilated by Native Americans, Abram McDowell grew up in a frontier world. It was a world whose society was transplanted from colonial Virginia

and whose culture and mores were those of a people on the edge of constant warfare with Native American enemies. Abram McDowell grew up “in the saddle.” While he missed the Indian Wars of the 1790s, he rode with Kentucky mounted riflemen in many of the key engagements of the War of 1812 in the Midwest. After his arrival in Columbus, he would serve in a number of public offices including clerk of the Common Pleas Court, clerk of the Supreme Court and county recorder. For one year in 1842, he also served as mayor of Columbus. While all of these civil posts were important, Abram McDowell was most comfortable when he was leading men in uniform. He would be the second leader of the local militia mounted unit, the Franklin Dragoons, after the death of its first com-

mander, Joseph Vance, in 1824. Abram McDowell was successful in most of the enterprises he undertook. He was successful because he was strong, energetic and well-connected with the founders of the city. But he was not always well-remembered. It is not hard to see why. A few recollections: “Mr. McDowell is still spoken of by old citizens of Columbus as a perfect specimen of the type of Kentucky gentleman of the old school. But he was a victim of the convivial habits of those times, and though he was highly respected, his last days were not happy… He was an intense aristocrat, priding himself on his culture, his social position, his refinement, and keeping haughtily aloof from the large mass whom he held to be beneath him.” Another account described Colonel McDowell in a slightly different way:

“He is represented as being a Kentucky gentleman of the old school, aristocratic in all of his notions, refined and educated, but regarded by many as haughty in his manners, and perhaps, on that very account, never acquiring wealth.” Abram Irvin McDowell died in 1844 and is buried in Green Lawn Cemetery. Perhaps learning from the experience of his father and becoming a bit more of a diplomat as well as a soldier, Irvin McDowell grew up with five siblings in the house across the river from Franklinton in what would later be downtown Columbus. The house is built high, perhaps in fear of the floods which encompassed the town across the river. Like its builder, it was a sturdy house and worthy of respect.

WHO CAN HELP YOU? If you need professional help making financial decisions, you should know the difference between some of the designations professionals use to refer to themselves. If you only need help with your taxes, seek the services of a “certified public accountant.” “Registered investment advisers” will help you develop a comprehensive investment strategy and a diversified portfolio on the basis of your retirement goals and risk tolerance, in addition to managing your investment. Many registered investment advisers also work as “ certified financial planners,” which means they can also provide guidance on taxes, insurance, charitable giving, and estate planning. While “ brokers” may provide advice, they primarily help with trades. Your choice should be based on the type of service and advice you require.

Dublin Literacy Conference

Educators to share expertise By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Featured authors and several Dublin teachers will draw educators from all over central Ohio for a day of learning. Dublin City Schools will host its 22nd Dublin Literacy Conference at Coffman High School on Feb. 26 and expects upwards of 700 Ohio educators. “We’ve already had a lot of registration forms come in this year,” said Sells Middle School teacher Jennifer Longwell, who is helping organize the event. “It could be the popularity of our featured speaker.” Kelley Gallagher, whom Longwell calls the “featured, featured author,” will kick off the literacy conference next month with “Readicide: How schools are killing reading and what you can do about it.” “He is our featured speaker for the morning,” Longwell said. “He is focused toward middle and high school literacy comprehension. Really, to be honest, in the past we’ve had a lot of featured speakers geared toward elementary school. This is the first for adolescent …” Other featured authors at the literacy conference include Patrick Allen, Troy Hicks, Brian Pinkney, Amy Krouse Rosen-

thal, Wendy Mass, Christian Long and illustrator Loren Long. But featured authors won’t be the only session leaders at the conference. Longwell estimated about 60 percent of breakout sessions are led by Dublin City Schoosl teachers. Session leaders must fill out forms describing what they can offer at the literacy conference or are recruited. Longwell said some are asked back. “We certainly would love more than just Dublin teachers to participate,” she said. “It’s difficult because we usually have the same people come back to do breakout sessions and they’re asked back. Or we find teachers and as a committee we ask, ‘Are you interested in coming in and showing us what you do in the classroom?’” Several sessions show teachers how to combine technology into the classroom, such as “Enhancing your Lessons by Using Screencasting,” “From School to Screen: Why Digital Writing Matters” and “Web 2.0 Tools for Teachers.” “I’ve noticed we’ve really focused on the technical aspect because it seems like it’s more popular to align to literacy, technology and the new uses of technology,” Longwell said.

Other sessions popular to educators focus on “special education and special needs and how to integrate differentiation in the classroom,” Longwell said. Educators aren’t the sole focus of the conference, though. Two free sessions geared toward parents and students will be offered and Longwell said it’s a good chance for students to meet authors. During “Books: Behind the Scenes!” from 9:15 to 10:15 a.m., author Amy Krouse Rosenthal will talk about the process involved with making a book. She’ll also take questions about her books. From 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. Christian Long will discuss tools of the 21st century and how to use them globally in the upcoming decade in “Exploring Tomorrow’s World of Education of Our Youngest Generation of Learners.” The parent and student sessions are free, but registration is limited to the first 100. Registration can be found online and is due by Feb. 14. For more information on the Dublin Literacy Conference, look online at Teachers must register for the conference by Feb. 4; registration forms are online.

St. Patrick’s Day parade taking entries By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Dublin is looking for the “greenest and grandest” for its annual St. Patrick’s Day parade. The city is taking applications for parade entries to the March 12 event that is expected to draw more than 20,000 spectators. The deadline for entries is Feb. 25. Dublin events administrator Mary Jo DiSalvo said parade entrants can register for Dublin’s two parades at once this year. “The newest thing is we have one application up for anyone who wants to be in the parade and they can be in both parades (St. Patrick’s Day and Independence Day),” she said. “We wanted to make it easier for people who want to be in one or both of the parades.” Parade manager Trish Lackey said this year’s parade will also focus on bringing entertainment to the forefront. “We’re concentrating on the quality of the parade,” she said. “We’re really enhancing and paying particular attention to the entertainment value. We’re really emphasizing that (entrants) provide us information about the quality of entertainment they will provide during each parade.” “We’re trying to look at it through green-colored glasses and see what it is the guest wants to see,” DiSalvo said. “At the time they apply we’ll put them in the guest’s shoes and find out what they are going to see. We want to them to think entertainment.”

The 11 a.m. parade will hold other new activities. “For the first year we will have an observation area in the Crowne Plaza parking lot that shows how the balloons are inflated,” Lackey said. “We’ve done this every year. We’ve just never thought of it as something the guest might like to experience,” DiSalvo said. “Big parades like Macy’s do this. We thought they might like to see this.” The parade should have about 100 entries this year and Lackey said a few new balloons will be in the lineup. “We’re looking at newer balloons also. We always try to change that up,” she said. “Of course we have the traditional cool frog prince, but we’re looking at changing things up. One of the things they made for us is a giant pot of gold with a shamrock on it.” The parade will follow its usual route from the starting point on Metro Place North up Frantz Road to state Route 161. The parade will proceed into Historic Dublin and then go south on South High Street where it will end around Waterford Drive. Parade entries will also be up for awards. Cash prizes will be given to best nonprofit, best overall and grand leprechaun’s choice. For more information on Dublin’s St. Patrick’s Day parade or an entry form, look online at

Swimming & Diving

Dublin Classic serves dual purpose By FRANK DiRENNA ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The three Dublin high school swimming and diving programs hope to use this weekend’s Dublin Classic as a final tuneup for the postseason. The event will be held at the Dublin Recreation Center on Saturday, Feb. 5, with diving to begin at 2 p.m. and swimming scheduled for 4 p.m. All three programs agreed that the event would serve as a friendly competition within the community.

Scioto coach Joe Cahill, who is in his first season, is looking forward to the meet. “We all practice together, so all the kids are pretty good friends, the coaches are pretty good friends, so it will be a fun, friendly competitive meet,” he said. •Jerome is eyeing what it hopes will be a successful postseason, beginning with a Division I sectional at Thomas Worthington on Feb. 12. The first- and second-place finishers in each boys and girls event from the

Upper Arlington and Worthington sectionals advance to the district meet slated for Feb. 18-19 at Ohio State. There also will be 26 at-large qualifiers from each event based on time from the two Central District sectionals, the East District sectional and the Southeast District sectional site. “We’re getting there slowly but surely,” Jerome coach Tyler Prose said. “Our kids are picking up their speed. As their taper progresses, they’re going to start picking up speed and they get less tired, so that’s right where we need to be.”

The Celtics girls team finished third (223) behind Westerville Central (274) and Olentangy Liberty (268) at the OCCCardinal meet on Jan. 29 at the Union County YMCA in Marysville. Freshman Morgan Quensel, who holds the program record in the 100-yard butterfly (59.20 seconds), was second in the event (1:00.55) behind Scioto’s Elizabeth Harty (59.22) and third in the 100 free (55.22). Quensel, sophomore Cara Corroto, freshman Elizabeth Lapham and senior Hayley Bratys were second in the 200

free relay (1:43.51). Chanelle Aepli was second in diving (391.6 points) and Lapham finished third in the 50 free (26.65).

Coffman coach looks to build all levels By JARROD ULREY ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Since taking over as coach of the Dublin Coffman High School girls lacrosse team last September, Mike Murphy has orchestrated an offseason conditioning agenda that he believes will help set up the team for success. Just as important from a program standpoint could be what he hopes to engineer off the field in the coming years. “I’m very excited about the opportunity to take over the girls lacrosse program at Coffman,” Murphy said. “The program has a good tradition, and I look forward to building on the success of the previous coaches. “I really want to get out and work with the middle schools and youth leagues and have the high school program build back into the community.” Murphy has been involved in the sport the past seven years through Dublin Youth Athletics

as a coach and administrator. The past four years, he also has coached a U-12 girls lacrosse allstar team that is comprised of Dublin players and competes in the annual Ohio Cup. Murphy, who is a manager at Ashland Inc., has been coaching basketball and other sports teams at various levels since 1985 but didn’t become interested in lacrosse until watching his niece play for Hartley several years ago. A certified lacrosse official, Murphy has several coaches on staff with previous playing experience. Amy Porta, who played for Miami University, will be the varsity assistant, and former Ohio University player Sarah Peterson will be the junior varsity coach. The other coaches are Morgan Kenney, Anna Baylor and Mychal Findley, who is a former Coffman player now teaching at the school. Murphy also is an assistant

Opposing coaches of the Dublin Coffman High School boys basketball team probably feel like Christian Heine has been playing for the Shamrocks for the last decade. However, Heine, a senior guard, can’t believe it’s already been three years since he first debuted on varsity eight games into his freshman season. “It’s gone by so fast,” Heine said. “And this senior year feels like it has gone the fastest. It’s been a long ride, but I know my time is ticking now.” It’s easy to understand why opposing coaches may wonder about Heine’s eligibility. He has been a fixture in the Shamrocks’ lineup for four seasons. He was called up to varsity in the first half of the 2007-08 season and was a regular starter by the end of that season. Preferring to slash to the basket, Heine was a full-time starter as a sophomore and led Coffman in scoring in five games. More of a shooter as a junior, he averaged 11.3 points and three assists and was named second-team all-OCCCentral Division. This season, Heine is showing that he is a varsity veteran, mixing drives with a smooth perimeter shot. He is averaging 14 points, ranking second on the team behind classmate Zack Riddle (15.9). “From last year to this year, I think the biggest thing he has worked on is the mental part of his game,” coach Jamey Collins said of Heine. “Something that might have happened last year doesn’t now because mentally he’s adjusted. He understands what to do.” Heine ranks among the top 3point shooters in central Ohio. He has 39 3-pointers through 14 games and has connected on 42.2 percent of his shots from beyond the arc. Twenty of his 3-pointers have come in the past three games. He made seven 3s in a 67-54 victory over Westland on Jan. 25, five in a 64-42 win over Thomas Worthington on Jan. 28 and eight — one shy of the program record set by Greg Brown in the 1988-89 season — in an 84-54 rout of Columbus East on Jan. 29. “He does a good job of catchSee COFFMAN, page B2

At a glance

Kelly Flood and her Dublin Scioto High School girls basketball teammates took a few moments to enjoy a recent win at Westerville North. Not only did the 49-38 victory on Jan. 28 move the Irish into a second-place tie with the Warriors in the OCC-Cardinal Division at 7-4 behind leader Olentangy (10-1), it ended a threegame losing streak. Scioto was 10-6 overall before playing a non-league game against visiting Upper Arlington on Feb. 1. “Those losses were good for us because I think we realized what we needed to work on,” said Flood, a senior guard who scored 16 points against North. “Now, we just need to put it all together. I think every team goes through a rough patch and struggles. It all depends on how you react to it.” For a team that was averaging 41.8 points per game, the win also provided a lift for an offense that looked lifeless at times during the losing streak. Scioto lost to Westerville South 46-33 on Jan. 25, Olentangy 54-32 on Jan. 21 and Pickerington Central 5445 on Jan. 15. Olentangy and South completed a two-game season sweep

Below are the recent results and coming schedules for the Scioto boys and girls basketball teams: BOYS *Jan. 25 — Lost to Westerville South 74-48 *Jan. 28 — Lost to Westerville North 64-58. Raneal Ewing scored a career-high 35 points. *Feb. 4 — Home vs. Westerville Central. The Warhawks won 56-43 on Dec. 21. Feb. 5 — At Linden-McKinley *Feb. 8 — At Olentangy Liberty.

steps up.” Flood was the only player averaging double figures in points (10.7), followed by junior forward Emily Jones (9.3) and sophomore guard Sarah Leach (6.2). Scioto was shooting 32 percent from the field and 57.8 percent from the free-throw line. “We know our offense has to improve,” Flood said. “We’ve really got to get better at offensive rebounding and attacking the hoop more. We’re definitely trying to break down the defense a little more and not take that quick shot all the time.” Scioto faces a Westerville Central team on Friday, Feb. 4, that had won four consecutive games before playing Hilliard Bradley on Feb. 1. Central was 8-8 overall and 65 in the OCC-Cardinal, tied with Dublin Jerome for third place. In a 52-43 win over the Warhawks on Dec. 21, three Irish players scored in double figures. Flood led the way with 16 points, Leach had 15 and sophomore guard Anna Buhigas added 10. “Westerville Central is not a flashy team, but they’ll work the entire game,” Fisher said. “They attack and they can shoot. They run a lot of sets and attack the backdoor very well.” See SCIOTO, page B3

she spent her only season as head coach before stepping down in the offseason to continue working on her master’s degree. Han took over last season for Paul Caldwell, who retired from coaching after 12 seasons in January 2010. The Shamrocks will have to replace several key offensive players from last season, including 2010 graduates Sara Dodson, Kayla Goddard and Grace Maxton, but have more than 50 students interested in playing this spring, according to Murphy. One of the players likely to be a part of the program in the coming season is Murphy’s daughter, freshman Kelly Murphy. Megan Murphy, also Murphy’s daughter, is a fifth-grader at Indian Run Elementary who plays the sport. “I’ve met with the girls and I’ve laid out my expectations,” coach Murphy said. “I’ve had a chance to get to know them at open gyms. I’m looking forward to getting back to coaching at the high school level. We graduated a lot of upperclassmen and I only have three seniors this year, so we’ll be a younger team, but we have over 50 girls who are interested in playing, so our numbers are up.”

coach with the Sells Middle School seventh-grade girls basketball team. He previously served as an assistant freshman boys basketball coach at Coffman as well as an assistant in the Worthington girls program before its school district split into two high schools in 1991. Murphy is a 1985 Worthington graduate. “First of all, he’s a really good person who has the kids’ interest at heart,” Coffman athletics director Tony Pusateri said. “He knows what being a high school athlete is about, and when it’s time for lacrosse, he works really hard on the preparation.” Murphy takes over a program that had 10 seniors a year ago when it went 7-6-1 overall and finished fourth in the OCC-Buckeye Division at 3-3-1, behind Upper Arlington (7-0), Worthington Kilbourne (6-1) and Thomas Worthington (4-2-1) and ahead of Hilliard Darby (3-4), Dublin Jerome (2-4), Hilliard Davidson (1-5) and Dublin Scioto (0-7). The Shamrocks lost to Cincinnati Ursuline Academy 138 in the first round of the Division I South-Central regional tournament.

I think I’ve grown as a player.” Heine helped Coffman capture its fifth district championship last year with a 78-59 victory over

Same boys basketball teams may enter tourney perfect Just when things got sticky for the Upper Arlington High School boys basketball team on Jan. 28 against Hilliard Darby, the Golden Bears switched gears. UA had its lead cut to four midway through the third quarter then turned up the defensive pressure for easy transition baskets en route to a 54-36 victory. The Bears won their 34th consecutive regular-season game and improved to 15-0 with a 58-50 win over Watterson on Jan. 31. Just like last year, UA looks to be one of four area teams that could finish unbeaten in the regular season. UA was joined by Gahanna, Northland and Westerville South as teams entering the Division I postseason undefeated last year. Those same four teams seem headed for a similar February finish. Gahanna improved to 16-0 after beating Pickerington Central 56-37 on Jan. 28. Northland was 14-0 before playing Linden-McKinley on Feb. 1. South was 15-0 after defeating Dublin Jerome 7450 on Jan. 28. Despite their continued success, only UA and South had a strong nucleus re-

turning. Northland and Gahanna had to reload to continue their dominance. Gahanna has won 44 consecutive regular-season games, and senior Stevie Taylor has been a major key SCOTT to the success at point HENNEN guard. The Ohio University signee is the only starter back from last season’s 6250 state semifinal loss to Massillon Jackson. Northland was the top-rated team in the country last season when it lost to Gahanna 71-45 in a regional final. The Vikings lost, among others Jared Sullinger and J.D. Weatherspoon, both of whom are freshmen at Ohio State. But Northland returned a top-flight senior point guard in Trey Burke, a Michigan signee, to help the Vikings jump to 24th in last week’s MaxPreps national poll behind top-rated Elizabeth (N.J.) St. Patrick. The Vikings won their 40th consec-

utive regular-season game on Jan. 29 with a 74-60 victory over host Logan (W.Va.). South and UA pretty much returned their core groups from last season and haven’t missed a beat. Led by Miami University signee Brian Sullivan, the Golden Bears lost to OCCCentral nemesis Dublin Coffman 5048 in a district semifinal last year after defeating the Shamrocks twice during the regular season (64-58 and 65-62). They finished 20-1. Coffman looms large on the horizon for UA, with the teams set to meet again Feb. 18 at UA. The Golden Bears won 53-52 on Jan. 14. South finished 22-1 last season after falling to Marion-Franklin 66-57 in a district semifinal. The Wildcats brought back most of their firepower, including Traevon Jackson, a Wisconsin signee and the son of former NBA and Ohio State player Jim Jackson. The Wildcats have won 40 consecutive games in the regular season. They have a possible stumbling block ahead in Westerville North on Tuesday, Feb. 8.

The Warriors took their rivals to overtime but lost to South 77-73 on Jan. 4. Still, the next meeting will be at South. At first glance, Gahanna and Northland seem to have smooth sailing to unbeaten regular seasons. But things are rarely that simple with 15- to 18-yearolds taking the court. Gahanna’s biggest test may be Friday, Feb. 4, at Pickerington North, which is 14-1. The Panthers’lone loss was a 6141 setback at Gahanna on Dec. 22. The Vikings may have their toughest tests this weekend. On Friday, Feb. 4, they play at home against Brookhaven, a team they edged 43-41 on Jan. 11. One day later, they travel to perennial state power Lakewood St. Edward, which was 12-4 after defeating Mentor Lake Catholic 93-63 on Jan. 29. Speaking of state powers, the area foursome has the attention of poll voters. In last week’s state poll, Gahanna was second behind Cincinnati Moeller, Northland was third and South was tied for fourth with Cincinnati La Salle.

UA received no mention statewide, but was fourth in last week’s area coaches poll behind Gahanna, Northland and South. And just more than a week away — Sunday, Feb. 13 — the Central District drawing takes place at Olentangy Liberty. Last year, Northland was the top seed followed by Gahanna, South and UA. Coffman was fifth. Right now, Gahanna likely would be the top seed, followed by Northland, South and UA, but that’s only a guess. There is still a week of basketball to play before the seeding deadline on Friday, Feb. 11, and it might be foolish to bet against any of these teams losing before then. Teams like these four powerhouses know how to win, and find ways to win. That is why the Fairgrounds Coliseum is always packed on the Saturdays featuring the Division I district semifinals and finals. It’s basketball at its best with teams that refuse to lose.

Lemongrass Fusion Cuisine is a Short North classic The story of Lemongrass Fusion Cuisine says a lot about Columbus. Once a brash and hot new dining star in the explosively growing constellation of Short North restaurants, about a dozen years later it has the status of a mature establishment that can even be taken for granted. That’s what I was thinking recently as I trekked back into Lemongrass’ heart-of-it-all digs. Having not been in a while, I wondered if the place would feel lively and fun again or simply outdated. At first glance, not a heck of a lot seemed different. Those same autographed entryway photographs of Michael Moore and Viggo Mortensen from Lemongrass’s glam-slamming earlier days were still hanging opposite its kicky little bar. And the restaurant proper had retained its theatrical look and

MENU by G.A. Benton vibe. So there’s the stage-like, trendily distressed wooden plank flooring, rainbow sherbet colored walls, a soaring ceiling, low and pleasant lighting and even a few little roofed dining niches bounded by gauzy curtains. This dramatic setting naturally attracts a classic, non-conformist Short North-type crowd. Lemongrass’ food is as flagrantly off-center as its freewheeling patrons and setting. Basically it’s a lot of Thai accents merging with Mediterranean sensibilities. For instance, the alluring Lemongrass Soup with vegetables

shredded cheese with crispy Asian noodles, toasted almonds, pineapple, mandarin oranges and fresh greens. I liked its crunch and the way its unexpected tamarind-forward Worcestershire sauce-y dressing played off the fruit. Lemongrass’ huge menu includes lots of sushi, like the justifiably popular Lemongrass Roll ($12). With silky swaths of salmon and sweet BBQ eel draped over an inside-out spicy tuna roll accompanied by zingy sauces and garnishes, it managed to be delicious, fun and colorful without sounding too many bells and whistles. Ditto for the excellent Pad Thai with Tofu ($12). I was especially fond of its healthier than usual wealth of multi-hued vegetables and lack of grease. More one-note tasting was the Monsoon Shrimp ($16). It wasn’t

I would’ve liked its hints of chili and lemongrass to have been cranked up to balance out its milky sweetness. A more-interesting coconut milk dish was the Hawaiian Duck ($19). Italy met Asia on a veggie- and fruit-heavy plate of pasta with big chunks of delicious — but not

crispy-skinned — duck. Seared Cajun Scallops ($19) were pretty terrific. A generous load of zesty spice-coated shellfish was beautifully browned and wonderful tasting. Sure, Lemongrass’ ’90s-era cocktails don’t excite and its large wine list contains many smart “best buy” selections that no longer are. And yeah, a dessert like Fried Plantains (with upscale ice cream bar slices) is more fun than memorable. But Lemongrass is still a fun, lively and intriguing eatery. If it’s considered “just another Columbus restaurant,” that only speaks volumes about our modern and greateating city. To read G.A. Benton’s blog visit

Her husband, meanwhile, will leave his job as culture coach for Campus Dining Services at OSU to run Babushka’s. Lack of on-site parking struck a nerve with Scottie MacBean’s immediate neighbors. Adding to their aggravation, the coffee shop’s ownership sought a liquor license, which was defeated by voters in the precinct. The Bennetts said additional parking can be found at Beechwold Custom Jewelry, located a few blocks south. Also, they said they have no interest in seeking a liquor license. Jennifer Kangus, the area’s representative to the Clintonville Area Commission, said she’s in a wait-and-see mode with the restaurant, as no one has yet raised an issue about parking. “Parking is always a concern in Clintonville,” she said. “It’s one of our universal themes. It always seems to come up. I’d like to see how things go and hopefully it will work out for the best.” Babushka’s will be open for lunch and dinner five days a week, lunch only on Sunday and closed Monday.

Scioto math team competes nationally A team of Dublin Scioto High School student mathematicians f placed 18th in the 2010 Ciphering Time Trials, a national mathematics contest administered by National Assessment & Testing. Coach Terry Henderly prepared students for the last 2010 competition, consisting of ten rounds. The problems in each round covered a range of difficulties in diverse topics, challenging the mostexperienced students to answer all three questions within the time limit and requiring less-experienced students to decide which problems they’ll need to skip. Calvin Palmer placed 24th in the 12th-grade division. Dublin Scioto will participate in National Assessment & Testing’s next contest, the 2011 Fourby-Four Competition this month, which offers a very similar contest format to teams of four rather

than to individual students. Dublin Scioto High School will also participate in National Assessment & Testing’s final contest of the year, the 2011 Collaborative Problem-Solving Contest, on which the school can collaborate for one week, doing research or applying technology as they wish.
