Mayoral, council seats up in 2011 By LIN RICE ThisWeek Community Newspapers

It’s an off-year for state and federal elections, but Union County residents can expect to see political signs cropping up. Numerous city, township and county seats on boards and councils will be contested. Union County won’t have a primary election this spring, but will have a spe-

cial election, according to Union County Board of Elections (BOE) director Bill McCarty. McCarty said that because positions like Marysville city council seats are nonpartisan, Union County would only have held a primary election if someone had challenged municipal court judge James Grigsby for his seat. Grigsby has filed to run for another six-year term, and no one else filed before the Feb. 2 deadline, according to McCarty.

Voters will turn out for a special election on May 3, however, to decide on a proposed 2.9-mill, five-year fire/emergency services levy for Jerome Township. (An accompanying story in this edition describes that levy request in greater detail.) In Marysville, mayor Chris Schmenk’s seat will be up. Schmenk told ThisWeek that she has not made a decision on seeking another four-year term, but that she plans to decide by April.

Each seat on Marysville’s council representing one of the city’s wards will be up for election this year. Current council members with expiring four-year terms include Tracy Richardson (Ward One), Daniel Fogt (Ward Two), Deborah Groat (Ward Three), and Nevin Taylor (Ward Four). Richardson and Groat both told ThisWeek that they are planning to run for re-election; Taylor and Fogt have not announced their intentions.

Union County will also see a new face in the position of county auditor, when Andrea Weaver begins a four-year term succeeding auditor Mary Snider. Weaver, who is currently the real estate administrator for the county auditor’s office, will take over as the head of that department on March 14.

Froment looks back on her time as Marysville administrator By LIN RICE ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Editor’s note: Marysville city administrator Jillian Froment sat down with ThisWeek Marysville reporter Lin Rice as she prepares to accept a new job with the state of Ohio. The following are highlights from the conversation.

Union County Humane Society executive director Steffen Baldwin walks Malph, a male border collie who seem unsure about the icy coating on the snow, around the building, at 16540 County Home Road, on Thursday, Feb.3.

on, Baldwin said one item will be a used car donated by Honda Marysville. Baldwin said the gala is important to UCHS’s fundraising efforts this year, as it looks for additional money to fund the building’s expansion project. The planned expansion will add 3,000 square feet to the UCHS facility on County Home Road, along with extra kennel space and other amenities. While money is being raised toward the building project, Baldwin said that UCHS still receives more than 40 percent of its annual operating budget through donations. UCHS’s seventh annual Top Hat and Tails fundraising gala will take place Saturday, March 19, beginning with a social hour at 6 p.m. It will be held at the National Guard Armory facility behind the Union County YMCA.

$658K from United Way to benefit local agencies By LIN RICE ThisWeek Community Newspapers

More than $658,000 will be infused into Union County’s public programs and nonprofit initiatives this year as a result of the United Way of Union County’s annual fundraising campaign. Coming fast off the 2010 fundraising drive, its most successful ever, the United Way of Union County will supply more than $658,000 to 42 programs of local agencies within the county, according to campaign and public relations director Dave Bezusko. Those agencies include six area food pantries, four senior centers, two shelters, a program for rent and utility assistance, prescription medication, hospice care, cancer support, youth activities and others, he said. “I feel very confident in the decisions our group made this year,” said Mike Rose, volunteer chair of the United Way’s community investment committee. “I always knew our agencies rely on United Way funding. But once I got in the trenches and visited the agencies, I was able to see just how vital a role that United Way plays in this community.” Of the 26 programs receiving funds from last year’s campaign, $251,792 (38 percent of allocations) will go to the Emergency and Basic Needs Impact Area, according to Bezusko. This includes the United Way’s top-funded program, the Salvation Army’s HomeSee UNITED WAY, page A4

ThisWeek: Has working in Marysville been different than your experience in other public positions? Froment: I’ve been in the public sector for about 14 years now, but this was the first time that I had worked in local government. I had managed large organizations and dealt with budget issues before, but I’d never worked with public services in this way — working with police and fire Jillian Froment services, dealing with utilities. It was interesting — one of the things that appealed to me (when signing on as city administrator) was understanding some of those issues. ThisWeek : Marysville’s city administrator po-

Promotion of Uptown events

Marysville considering part-time position ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Marysville is looking for someone with some uptown-promoting savvy. Mayor Chris Schmenk said the city administration is working on creating a position that would focus on promoting historic uptown events, such as the longstanding Uptown Friday Nights celebrations. The position is being tentatively called an uptown promotions manager. “This wouldn’t really be a communications position (for the city), but more as part of the restructuring of the responsibilities for uptown functions,” Schmenk said. Stirring up interest in some of the fun things that go on in the Marysville’s historic uptown district would be the goal for whoever is hired. “That position’s main function would be to promote those kind of events – say if there was a sale going on in uptown, or the planning involved with an event like Uptown Friday Night,” Schmenk said. “The position could serve as a point of contact for the farmers market or similar activities.” The city administration is working on a specific job description, but Schmenk said she envisions it will be a part-time job. “We’re still working on a de-

FROMENT Continued from page A1 sition is not very detailed in the city charter. How did you handle the boundaries of the position? Froment: I think that each mayor has treated the position of administrator differently, depending on what was needed at the time. Our mayor (Chris Schmenk) wanted someone who would take on managing the city, while she was about putting a vision and policy in place, and working on those relationships. ThisWeek: What projects will you remember after leaving Marysville? Froment: I would say being able to help set in motion the future of our safety service facilities, the police, municipal court and fire buildings — that has been a very difficult process for staff and the community. Knowing that I’ve left the city with the knowledge that it will only get better, I’m truly proud of that process. There have been so many interesting projects: getting to help shape the future water plant, adding additional (sewage) capacity in the southeastern corner of the county. I don’t know that the average citizen even knows some of those things are going on, but 10 to 15 years from now, things will look a lot different. ThisWeek: What skills do you think a new city administrator will need to make a good fit for Marysville? Froment: I think that Marysville needs someone who can think about the long-term consequences of decisions, and who can help the city council as they develop longterm plans. Marysville has great department heads, in every department; it’s just a great team. What Marysville needs now is someone who can keep that team going in the same direction, but can also let them do their own jobs well. If you have a strong team, you need to know how to keeping them strong. ThisWeek: Starting a new job isn’t the only major change you’re making soon, correct? Froment: Yes, there’s a lot of change going on right now. Not only am I changing jobs this month, I’m also going to be married (on Feb. 5). That’s quite a lot going on at one time. My fiance, Kevin Potter, and I are getting married in Worthington near where I grew up. There’s so much going on that I think we’re going to hold off on the honeymoon for a while, though. We’re hoping on staying in Marysville, and I’ll tackle the commute. ThisWeek:Any parting thoughts on the city of Marysville? Froment: This community is one of the nicest I’ve ever been to, that’s part of why we’re hoping to stay. When I first came here, it took me about six months to adjust to people actually saying “hi” to you. I like the fact that I recognize people when I got to the grocery store or a restaurant. Even if people don’t know you, they’re friendly. That’s something our community needs to hang onto.

scription, but we hope to have that done in the next couple of weeks,” she said. “We’re excited to be focused on getting the city involved.” Schmenk said the idea has been kicked around since late last fall, when Marysville’s Uptown Renewal Team experienced several changes. A branch of the Union County Chamber of Commerce, the URT was tasked with facili-

tating growth in the uptown area. The URT’s manager and several key members resigned last October, leaving a gap in promoting the city’s uptown district. A new group, the Uptown Business Association (UBA), has formed to take on some of those responsibilities and plans to remain a private-sector organization. UBA organizers have said

that group plans to work on the uptown’s image, along with organizing the area’s business owners into a unified front. Schmenk said Marysville budgeted for such a position last year, but no decision has been made yet as to what the salary will be. That will be decided as the job description is worked out in the coming weeks, she said.

The Uptown Friday Nights celebration was a staple of summer outdoor entertainment in Marysville for many years, taking the form of block parties that brought the community together with live music, food and children’s activities. Only one Uptown Friday Night event was scheduled in 2010, a new Union County Barbeque Festival.

UNITED WAY Continued from page A1 less Prevention Program. That program will receive $62,189, which it uses to provide rent and utility assistance to local residents who have an eviction notice or a utility that has already been shut off. Another $32,500 will go to the Union County Chapter of the American Red Cross, which responds to house fires and prepares for natural disasters. “So many of our neighbors are without the means to provide basic needs for their families, such as food and other household items,” said Michelle Proia, community investment committee member. “As I wake up each day in a heated home, grab breakfast from the cupboard, get in my car and drive to my job, I am reminded that these things that I often take for granted would be so valued by someone who has suffered some unplanned misfortune ... When there is a need, Union County residents really do pull together to help each other.” The Youth Services Impact Area will receive $147,489. This area includes the North Star Youth Center in Richwood ($30,000); Health and Human Service programming will receive $139,100 to benefit organizations such as the Loving Care Hospice ($31,000) and the Richwood Civic Center ($27,000). Proia said each agency receiving the financial aid is vetted by the United Way committee. “Each agency requesting funding participates in a rigorous application process,” she said. “Each agency submits a detailed application, which sets forth complete financial data, current programming information and how the agency intends to spend any allocated funds. Also, various community investment committee members meet in person with each agency to interview the people running the organization and to ask questions to further explain the written information that the agency has submitted.” While this year’s campaign raised about $852,000, Bezusko said the United Way’s administrative budget for 2011 stands at $159,738. “Additionally, $42,600 has been allocated to ‘pledge loss’ in anticipation that 5 percent of the

Grand Opening

money pledged by donors in the 2010-11 campaign will not be paid in 2011,” Bezusko said. Determining how much money should go to each agency is a difficult five-month process, said 14year committee member Kathy Klug. “We have a responsibility to recognize ‘need’ from ‘want,’” Klug said. “In the fortunate years when United Way fundraisers are extremely successful, it’s an easy task distributing dollars and even to replenish a reserve fund for emergencies. “In recent years, we have struggled with the larger requests coming from the agencies,” she said. “Other sources of their funding have been lost; more people have lost jobs and are in danger of losing their homes or having enough to eat. This is where our priority system helps us.” More information about the 2010-11 United Way of Union County campaign can be found online at www.unitedwayofunioncounty.org.

HABITAT Continued from page A1 1,200 square foot house. “We still have some things to do, some springtime work like landscaping and some sidewalk work, but other than that it’s been wonderful,” Cesa said. “Hopefully, the homeowner will be able to move in in the next week or so.” HHUC is one of more than 1,600 affiliates in the United States. Habitat for Humanity works to eliminate poverty housing from the community by selling homes at no profit to families who might not otherwise afford a home. Their goal is to build “simple, decent, affordable homes for low-income families, without regard to race, gender, creed, marital status, religion, age or national origin,” providing a “hand-up, not a hand-out,” the nonprofit’s motto states. Constructing the house cost about $80,000, with $75,000 of that coming from the city of Marysville. City council approved allocating the money last July. The funds were leftover Housing and Economic Recovery Act (HERA) dollars, which were earmarked for neighborhood stabilization and providing homeownership opportunities. Cesa said that about 100 volunteers pitched in between midOctober and now to get the ranch-style house completed. Local contractors such as By George Plumbing and Mike’s Landscaping both donated labor and supplies for the construction, Cesa said. With their first house essentially completed, Cesa said HHUC is about to begin looking for more opportunities to build affordable houses throughout Union County. “Fortunately we’ve formed a nice alliance with (Marysville) to come up with locations, and we’re in the process of getting the next home funded,” Cesa said. “We’re looking for land, certainly we’re not expecting it to be free, but land that can be developed into a home, and our family selection committee will be reviewing applications to ultimately select a potential homeowner for the next home.” Cesa said HHUC plans to have a roof on a second house by the end of this year, “before the weather gets too cold.” The organization will begin interviewing potential homeowners next week. An informational meeting for the next project is set for 11 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 12, at the Memorial Hospital cafeteria (500 London Ave., Marysville). Anyone interested is welcome, Cesa said. More information can be found online at www.unioncountyhabitat.org or by calling 614-306-3225.

Memorial Hospital County Health board to use new suspends septic accreditation program system rule Memorial Hospital of Union County will soon enact a new accreditation program from DNV Healthcare. Memorial Hospital will be able to satisfy its Medicare accreditation requirements, along with implementing a new quality management system, as part of DNV’s national integrated accreditation for healthcare organizations (NIAHO) service, according to public relations and development specialist Stephanie Lantz. “This is more than a new accreditation program, it’s a catalyst for our ongoing commitment to patient safety and clinical quality,” said Chip Hubbs, president/CEO of Memorial Hospital. “With NIAHO, we can achieve full ISO compliance and satisfy our annual accreditation requirements at the same time, for no additional cost. Quite literally it is a win-win for us, our patients and our community.” By law, hospitals must be accredited by a Medicare-approved program in order to be reimbursed for care provided to patients covered by Medicare and Medicaid, Lantz said. DNV Healthcare’s NIAHO program focuses on auditing the hospital’s business processes as well as finding better ways to do things in every department of the hospital, she said. — Lin Rice

The Union County Board of Health suspended a county rule earlier this month that will affect owners of septic systems. According to public information officer Jennifer Thrush, the board voted on Jan. 19 to suspend a portion of the Household Sewage Treatment Rules that requires the alarm on a residential septic system to be on a separate, frequently used circuit from the motor and pump of the septic system. The intent of the rule was to ensure homeowners would know if their septic system pumps or motors failed, according to the minutes of the meeting; however, the available control panels for septic systems do not allow

The Monarchs’ Zach LaRoche drives against Westland’s J.J. Smith on Jan. 15. A recent three-game winning streak pushed Marysville’s record to 5-10 before playing Westerville South on Feb. 4.

Marysville Roundup

Grose pleased with progress of boys team By FRANK DiRENNA ThisWeek Community Newspapers Restoring a winning tradition was Ryan Grose’s top goal for his first season as Marysville High School boys basketball coach. Although he probably will fall short of that goal this season, Grose feels like the program is moving in the right direction. The Monarchs, 28-79 the previous five seasons, were 5-10 overall before playing Westerville South on Feb. 4. “We’re learning,” Grose said. “I have a pretty young team. We have players with limited varsity experience who are playing a lot of minutes for us that will all be back next year.” The Monarchs played their best basketball during a recent three-game winning streak, which included a 48-47 win over Olentangy Liberty on Jan. 21.

Marysville avenged a 68-42 loss to the Patriots on Dec. 7. Grose called the win a highlight of the season. “We lost by 26 points the first game, so for us that shows the commitment our guys have made to continue to work hard,” he said. “When you’re losing, sometimes you can get frustrated and not do what you need to do. Our kids continue to work hard, continue to focus and continue to want to approach every game with the right mindset that they’re going to go in and win that basketball game. “That was one of the nights where we did a lot of things right and a couple things fell our way.” The Monarchs also beat Westland 4642 on Jan. 15 and Hilliard Darby 41-40 on Jan. 18 as part of their longest winning streak of the season. The streak ended with a 64-40 loss

to Olentangy on Jan. 25. The Monarchs were 2-8 in the OCCCardinal Division before playing South, which was 14-0 overall and first in the league at 10-0. South is ranked fourth in the Division I state poll, led by Cincinnati Moeller. Marysville plays at Dublin Jerome on Tuesday, Feb. 8. The Monarchs beat the Celtics 57-55 on Jan. 5 for their first OCC-Cardinal win of the season. Marysville will visit Westerville North on Friday, Feb. 11. North defeated the Monarchs 66-52 on Jan. 7, although Marysville played without junior post player Craig Runyan, who was out with the flu.

“We have great opportunities to continue to try to compete in our league and earn that respect from those other teams,” Grose said. “Obviously, we beat Jerome the first time, so I’m sure they’re going to be ready to roll when we go to their place. We played North without Craig Runyan and they really exploited us inside, so I know our kids are looking forward at another shot at them.” Grose called a shakeup in the starting lineup a key to the team’s turnaround. Sophomore Corey Gould took over as the starting point guard in place of senior Anthony Aquillo, who has since left the team.

Sophomore Kody Davisson also has started and has helped Gould at the point. Sophomore Steve Romesburg, junior Zach LaRoche and Runyan have rounded out the starting lineup. Grose added that seniors Kyle Nelson and Hayes Chrispin have provided solid minutes off the bench. “After we made the change we won three in a row,” Grose said. “We’re finally starting to understand what it takes as a team to win with a consistent effort every day in practice and the focus and preparation that it takes to win in our league. Everybody we played is talentSee MONARCHS, page A7

Same boys teams chasing perfect regular season

Sangster hockey bloodline paying off for Olentangy

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 Brookhaven on Feb. 4. South was 15-0 after defeating Dublin Jerome 74-50 on Jan. 28. Despite their continued success, only UA and South had a strong nucleus returning. North-

It’s certainly no surprise that the Sangster twins are key figures for the Olentangy High School hockey team. Trever is the steady goaltender for the Braves and Tyler had scored 40 goals before January ended. The reason their success shouldn’t be a surprise is their lineage. The co-head coach at Olentangy is their dad, Rob, who was drafted by the NHL’s Vancouver Canucks and played for the Columbus Chill in their first season, 1991-92. Rob Sangster is cherishing this opportunity to coach his sons. “I treasure this time with this team,” said Sangster, who is cocoach with Mazin Habash. “I am so fortunate to be spending valuable time with my kids and I am trying my best to enjoy these moments while they last. “Coaching is challenging and coaching your own kids is even more challenging because you have to use different motivational techniques with each kid, but the experience has been really great.” Trever and Tyler Sangster, who are seniors, said having their father as their hockey mentor has been valuable.

land and Gahanna had to reload to continue their dominance. Gahanna has won 44 consecutive regular-season SCOTT games, and HENNEN senior Stevie Taylor has been a major key to the success at point guard. The Ohio University signee is the only starter back from last season’s 62-50 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 consecutive 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 OCC-Central nemesis Dublin Coffman 50-48 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 MarionFranklin 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 See HENNEN, page A7

“Basically, just having his presence at practice is so good for all of us. My dad has credentials. He was a pro hockey player and he knows the game so

well,” Tyler said. Trever added, “Our dad had us ice skating at the age of 4 and playing hockey at the age of 5 and he has always been pretty tough on Tyler and I, but by pushing us like he does, we have learned a lot and have become much better hockey players.” His coaching has helped the entire team, the brothers said. “Our chemistry has improved so much this year,” Tyler said. “We have a good senior class to provide leadership and on the ice our experience is shown by our growing awareness of each other and our overall puck control.” Trever added, “Our team is See LARSON, page A7

LARSON Continued from page A6 very respectful of each other. We are focused on always getting better and our older players have done a good job helping the younger players.” The excitement level in their voices goes up when they talk about their love of hockey. “It is so challenging to be a goalie,” Trever said. “You have this wide range of emotions throughout a game. There is the adrenaline rush when you see a good player with a hard shot coming at you and you learn with time that the mental side of playing this position is what makes you successful. For all the excitement going on in a game, you have to stay calm and collected. If you get scored on, you can’t worry about it and you have to maintain a confident attitude.

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 7773 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-year-olds taking the court. Gahanna’s biggest test may have been Feb. 4 at Pickerington North, which was 14-1. The Panthers’ lone loss was a 61-41 setback at Gahanna on Dec. 22. The Vikings may had their toughest tests during the week-

Schools announce coaching vacancies

At a glance “My idol as a goaltender is the legendary Patrick Roy, but former Columbus Blue Jackets goalie Ron Tugnutt helped me when I was around 10 years old, and he and present Blue Jackets goaltender Steve Mason are also my heroes. I love the fierceness of hockey and I love seeing a puck being shot at me. There are so many challenges in each game.” Speaking of his passion for hockey, Tyler said, “I believe my hands are my strength. I have decent speed, pretty good puck control and I think I have good awareness on the ice, but in this game you have to be heads up every second. You have to make split-second decisions and when you go into the corners, you almost have to have your head on a swivel. “My personal hero was always

Pavel Bure because he brought vibrancy onto the ice when he played and he had dynamic energy and it is that energy that I want to copy. I love the flow of hockey. I love the feel of the air when I am on the ice and I love the speed. It’s a change-up from other sports and a change-up from everyday life. Hockey has helped me develop into the person I am through the work ethic I have learned.” The Sangster trio hopes to continue to make the Olentangy hockey program better. They certainly have the proper attitude heading into the postseason. I’ll see you at a game. Larry Larson is a former athletics director at Grandview High School. He can be heard as “Mr. High School Sports” on WTVN 610 AM.

Below are the recent results and coming schedules for the Marysville boys basketball, girls basketball, swimming & diving and wrestling teams: BOYS BASKETBALL *Jan. 28 — Lost to Westerville Central 52-43. Kyle Nelson led the Monarchs with 16 points followed by Craig Runyan (15) and Kody Davisson (10). Feb. 1 — Game against Bellefontaine postponed because of bad weather *Feb. 4 — Played Westerville South *Feb. 8 — At Dublin Jerome *Feb. 11 — At Westerville North Of note: The Monarchs were 5-10 overall and 2-8 in the OCC-Cardinal before Feb. 4.

end. On Feb. 4, they played at home against Brookhaven, a team they edged 43-41 on Jan. 11. A day later, they traveled 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. shennen@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com
