District weighing timing of next levy


By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

A levy is in the future for Dublin City Schools. Treasurer Stephen Osborne isn’t sure when the district will ask voters to approve its next operating levy, but said he and Superintendent David Axner are discussing it with community stakeholders. “We’re just starting that. A lot has been postponed because of the weather,” he said last week. “We’ll start with the senior council and talk to the business advisory council.” Discussions will revolve around the timing of the next operating levy and the need for it, although Osborne said he hasn’t looked at figures yet. “We were last on (the ballot) in November 2008 for a levy that was to last three years,” he said. “Collection began in 2010.” Dublin voters passed the combined 7.9-mill operating levy and $50-million bond package with 54 percent of the vote. Any levy that goes on the ballot will not begin collecting until 2013, Osborne said. When the disSee DISTRICT LOOKING, page A2

‘Les Miserables’

Show brings challenges, enjoyment to students

By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

“Les Miserables” is proving to be a challenge for the Jerome High School students involved, but they love it. The show, based on Victor Hugo’s novel of the same title, has more than 80 Jerome High School students singing, dancing, building sets, playing music and working on lighting. The major undertaking will take the stage of Jerome High School, 8300 Hyland Croy Road, at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 17-19 and 2 p.m. Feb. 19. Theatre teacher Patricia Scott said the production includes 50 actors, but with a live orchestra, sound, lighting and other work to be done, 85 students in all are helping to run the show. For junior Matt Dunn, “Les Miserables” will be his first time on the stage. “This is my first lead in a production or a musical,” he said. Dunn is usually working behind the scenes on lights and other technical aspects of Jerome’s theatre productions, but the character of Thendardier drew him to the stage.

Dublin Jerome High School senior Dan Stevens rehearses on Feb. 3 for his role as Jean Valjean in the school’s performance of “Les Miserables.” Performances will be held at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 17 and at 2:30 p.m. Feb. 19.

“I just love this character. It attracted me,” he said. “It’s not like playing myself at all.” The part of the crooked innkeeper that introduced Dunn to the stage could keep him there in the future. “I love it. It’s an absolute blast,” he said. “There’s nothing quite like getting out in front of an audience and playing off

each other.” And the actors have several people to play off. “Working with a huge cast has its benefits and difficulties,” senior Dylan George said. “You get to work with passionate people, but it’s hard it get everyone in one place See ‘LES MISERABLES,’ page A2

If Punxsutawney Phil’s prediction of an early spring is right, Dublin could end this winter with salt in the barn. If he’s wrong, streets and utilities director Ron Burns said, more can be ordered. Either way, Dublin has faced a much harsher winter than usual this year. “We have used more (salt) than usual because we had a really snowy December,” Burns said. “There’s not a lot of accumulation, but events have required treating the roadways.” The streets and utilities department is still within budget, but Burns said hours clocked in cleaning Dublin’s 500 lane miles have been more than usual, too. “We are definitely within budget, but as early as it is in winter we have utilized more (man hours) than I would consider normal for this time of year,” he said. To fight last week’s winter storm that brought ice, Burns said the city pretreated streets to keep residents safe. “We pretreated hills and bridge decks with salt brine and we went

off shift yesterday at midnight and we will continue on shift through probably tomorrow at noon, depending on how the storm finalizes itself,” he said Feb. 2. While high winds followed the first part of last week’s storms, and AEP reported thousands of customers without power, Burns said Dublin didn’t see an “extreme” number of calls about downed branches. “It’s been much less than I expected,” he said. “We had a few, but it hasn’t been anything extreme by any means. We got really lucky because it got up to 38 degrees overnight and ice melted off trees See DUBLIN, page A2

Dublin Foundation to honor chamber at Emerald Celebration By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Dublin Foundation will honor an organization with which it shares a goal. The Feb. 26 Emerald Celebration will honor the 35-year-old Dublin Chamber of Commerce as it raises money for the Dublin Foundation, which will benefit the community through grants.

The Emerald Celebration, scheduled at the Columbus Marriott Northwest, is the biggest fundraiser for the nonprofit group. Lisa Garner is taking the helm of this year’s celebration and said the chamber of commerce was an “obvious” choice for the annual honoree. “We go through a selection process of evaluating people that have given back to the community and have a mis-

sion in alignment with the Dublin Foundation,” she said. “Last year, we celebrated the city because of the bicentennial and this year it’s the chamber. Without the chamber, Dublin wouldn’t be what it is. I sit on the (chamber) board and it is phenomenal to have an organization like that that is vital to the success of the community.” Margie Amorose, chamber executive director, has helped with the Emerald

Celebration since its start, and said she’s honored the chamber will be recognized. “This year the decision was to have the chamber honored and it took me aback,” she said, noting that individuals — even herself — are often honored. “The (Dublin Women’s Philanthropic) club was last year’s honoree, but it was their anniversary. Honest to gosh, this is the year we’re going to put in the books.”

Amorose said she asked Garner to get involved at last year’s Emerald Celebration, which was her first. “I think the Dublin Foundation does so much for the community, and running a hotel in the community, I think it’s important to the community the work the foundation does,” Garner said. “That’s inspired me to get involved.

District looking into next levy Continued from page A1

By Lorrie Cecil/ThisWeek

Dublin Jerome High School students Dan Stevens rehearses on Thursday, Feb. 3, for the school’s performance of “Les Miserables.”

‘Les Miserables’ play brings challenges, enjoyment to students Continued from page A1 … It’s high school. There’s lots going on.” For senior Courtney Cunningham, who plays Eponine, the challenge of the production has been in the music. “What this is is a modern opera,” she said. “There’s no spoken dialogue. The orchestra gets no break.” While getting a rhythm down for all the lines is difficult, so is singing for the running time that eclipses three hours, Cunningham said. “This is such a big show,” she said. “If we pull it off it’s going to impress everyone. We’re hoping to leave a mark.” Laura King must hit all the high notes as Cosette and agreed that singing for so

long has been challenging. “This is the most I’ve ever sung in a short time,” said the junior, who’s been involved in theatre since seventh-grade. Playing Jean Valjean has been quite a handful for senior Dan Stevens. “I’m kind of intimidated,” he said. “The part is huge and I’m going to have my plate full living up to it.” But Stevens said he was excited when Scott announced last year they would be doing “Les Miserables.” “As soon as I found out we were doing it, I started researching it,” he said. George said he did the same thing. He’s never seen the production before, but started listening to the music. His favorite song is “Javert’s Suicide” and it spells the end

School news Dublin sets possible makeup days With last week’s winter storm that brought ice and wind the central Ohio, Dublin City Schools used its final two calamity days. The state gave every school district three calamity days this year and in an email sent to parents last week, Superintendent David Axner said any more calamity days will need to made up at the end of the school year. “If we must use additional calamity days, our contingency days are scheduled for May 31-June 6,” the email said. Gov. John Kaisch has touted a plan to restore five calamity days to school districts, but Axner said “that will likely not take place for this school year, but for 2011-12.” The district will keep an eye on any action at the state level, he said.

trict put the 7.9-mill levy on the 2008 fall ballot, it said the money would last three years and Osborne said they’re sticking to that pledge. “Right now the levy approved in 2008 will fund us through the 2012-13 school year,” he said. The district will look into putting a new operating levy on the ballot this fall or wait until next year. “If we go (to voters) in November, that means we have to have the first resolution passed in July of this year,” he said. The district must pass two resolutions to put a levy on the ballot and Osborne said both must be passed in early August. Dublin City Schools could also wait until next year to go to voters – in either case the levy will start collecting in 2013, if approved by voters, Osborne said.

“We’re just looking at the time schedule and 2012 will be a little different because of the presidential primary in the spring. That means the operating levy could be in March instead of May,” he said. The only difference the timing of the levy will make for the district is in planning. “It does make a difference from a planning point of view for the district,” Osborne said. “The sooner we go (to the voters), the better we can plan — plan for expenditures for the district.” But for now things remain up in the air until the district gains perspective from the community. “We’re taking all factors into consideration right now,” Osborne said. “We’re taking time and discussing it with our stakeholders.”

of his character. “It’s the only point in the show you get to see inside Javert and his emotions,” he said. “He sees everything he’s been doing to Jean Valjean is wrong. It’s emotionally captivating.” This is King’s first experience with the show too, but she said she’s enjoying it, despite the challenges. “I love it,” she said. “I’ve been listening to the soundtrack. I’m going to the Ohio Theater when it comes here in March.” Tickets to Jerome High School’s production of Les Miserables are $10 for adults and $6 for students, and can be purchased online at or at the door.

Dublin keeping up with winter thus far Continued from page A1 prior to the winds picking up.” Dublin used approximately 9,500 to 10,000 tons of salt last year and has gone through about 5,500 tons this winter, not counting last week’s storm. As Dublin slid through the latest storm, Burns said 2,000 tons of salt are still in reserve with another 2,000 tons on order. Dublin’s current salt reserves could get the city through the rest of the winter, but if Punxsutawney Phil is wrong

the city would need to order more. “We are sure hoping it’ll get us through the rest of winter,” Burns said. ”But we have the ability to store 4,000 tons of salt. In the event that we used another 4,000 tons we can get more.” No one can predict what else winter has in store, but Burns cautioned drivers to drive safely — especially around the 20 snow trucks Dublin has on the roads during snow — and not try to pass snow plows and maintain a safe distance behind them.

Young adults often find they are unable to obtain credit cards without an adult consigning, and those without credit histories or well-paying jobs may find it impossible to rent an apartment or borrow money without a cosigner. Nearly all of us want to help our children in every way possible, but parents may want to look carefully at what they might be getting themselves into. The Federal Trade Commission estimates that three-quarters of cosigners are asked to repay loans because the primary borrower has defaulted. With this in mind, prospective cosigners should look at the primary borrower through the eyes of a lender. No one should cosign a loan that he or she cannot afford to repay him or herself.

Concert Band of Dublin starts new tune, talk By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Almost 70 people spent time together last week for a tune and a talk. The first rehearsal for the Concert Band of Dublin, which falls under the Dublin Community Bands umbrella, drew 68 people to Grizzell Middle School on Jan. 31. “The first rehearsal was tremendous. We had a great turnout of around 70 people,” said director Jeff Chesser. Tim Jameson, president of Dublin Community Bands, said more members could come. “The rehearsal was awesome. There were a lot of smiling people and people having a good time,” he said. “We got e-mails from some people saying they couldn’t come to the first rehearsal.” A few changes are coming to the new band already. Jameson said the group is moving its weekly 7 p.m. Monday rehearsals to the band room at Scioto High School, 4000 Hard Road. The group is also looking for instruments collecting dust in attics and basements around Dublin. “We’re hoping to find orphan instruments in the community. If someone has an instrument in the attic, get it out and play,” he said. “If they do have an orphan instrument they’re not going to play, they can donate it.” Chesser said specialty instruments such as a French horn and bass clarinet are needed. “I’ll never say we have too much of anything, but I will say the balance is not quite optimal. There are some instruments we need to make a well-balanced band,” Jameson said. “We’d love to have folks from the community play these instruments; that’s our

first choice. We’re most in need of woodwind instruments overall, especially clarinets, saxophones, double reed (instruments) and French horns.” Dublin Community Bands is a nonprofit organization and any donation – instrumental or financial – is tax deductible, Jameson said. Any donated instrument the band gets, without a musician, will get played. “We did learn there are people who want to be part of this who don’t have an instrument or could play a second instrument,” Jameson said. Musicians are still welcome to join the concert band, though, Chesser said. “People are still welcome to come and check us out,” he said. “They can go on our website and register. We need oboes and all reed (instruments) and French horns. We need more percussionists, too.” The weekly rehearsals will last about two hours, with a break in the middle, Chesser said. According to Jameson, people use the time to do more than make music. “Even though we had a lot of folks who haven’t had their instruments out of a case in a long time, it sounded good,” he said. “Just as good was the sound of laughing and conversation of people that would never had known each other if they hadn’t come to this.” The Concert Band of Dublin’s first concert is slated for May 13 and Chesser said a trombone player from the United Kingdom will be featured.

As it were

Brother, can you spare a dime for a night’s lodging? Columbus and America have spent much of the last quartercentury attempting to come to grips with the problem of people with little or no money and very few places to spend the night. But this is not a story about America today. I will leave that story to others. Today I would rather look a little more closely at how people with few resources lived a century ago. One-hundred years ago, some people who had lost everything due to bad decisions, bad attitudes or simply bad luck left their old world behind and hit the road. They became known as “tramps,” “hoboes” or “vagrants” and lived off the land and by their wits. As far as I know, the definitive history of the vagrant in America has yet to be written. But a lot of good historical research seems to point to the simple fact that outsiders and other just plain unlikable people have a long history in our country. More than one historian has noted that more than a little of this country was founded and settled by such people. Eventually, many — if not most — of these people settled down, found a calling, a living or a career and no longer drifted across the land. Every town of any size in America has had its share of people who simply did not fit in. Many lived on the edges of the town, did their best to stay out of the way and got on with their lives. In the early history of Columbus, a number of rather disreputable types — nominally led by a man named Jones — founded a settlement of their own called “Jonesburgh” near the intersection of Naghten Street and Cleveland Avenue, a place that was then “out in the country.” It soon became an open marketplace for thieves, robbers and other nasty people. The “village,” such as it was, became a local center of drink, dissolution and disease and was in short order closed down by local residents who did not like to have such a place so close to the state capital. One could assume that the good citizens of Columbus who drove out the bad people of Jonesburgh thought they had rid the city of its unwanted residents once and for all. If, indeed, they thought so, they of course were sadly mistaken. Columbus, like every American city, would always have a vice district — an area that through much of the 1800s would come to be called the “Badlands.” The state capital would also always have people who literally lived at the edges of the town and who subsisted on whatever they might scavenge. But this story is not really about those people. Rather, it is about

the people who came to Columbus looking for work, with few, if any, resources, and just simply ED needed a LENTZ place to stay. In January 1902, a reporter for the Columbus Press-Post followed several of these people and wrote a rather lengthy story about what he discovered about their lives: “There are several men in Columbus who are each worth $1,000,000, which at 6 percent interest, means an income of $60,000, or nearly $200 per day … But it is not with the rich man this article is intended to deal … The poorest man is the one who lands in the city with 25 cents in his pocket, and must live upon this until he can find something to do that will bring him another 25 cents, if no more. “The man with 25 cents still views the world hopefully. He discovers that it will carry him through one day in comparative comfort. There is 5 cents for his breakfast, 5 cents for his dinner, 5 cents for his supper and 10 cents remaining for a bed in a lodging house. “There are numerous lodging houses in Columbus, whose signs say that a night’s lodging may be secured within at prices ranging from 10 to 15 cents. To put it in round figures, a canvass was made of ten of these ‘hotels’ and it was learned that an average of 20 men per night — all the year round — lodge in each of these establishments. “There is a sitting room, dignified by the title of ‘office,’ usually upon the walls of which the far-seeing proprietor has hung framed rules and regulations,

made up in style somewhat like Sunday School mottos, reading thus: “‘Anyone retiring with his shoes on will forfeit his bed.’ ‘Sleeping in the office strictly forbidden.’ ‘Beds must be paid for in advance.’ “There are, however, permanent lodgers also in the 10- and 15-cent hostelries. The majority of these have the 15-cent beds. These beds are located in small rooms hardly larger than the private lockers in the athletic clubman’s club house … In the rooms or stalls, there is a single iron bed, one chair and hooks for hanging up clothing … The lodgers who expend 15 cents a night for a sleeping place are many of them clerks on small salaries, some of them from the great army of men who work in the wholesale houses and other big establishments where hundreds of men are employed. “The ambitious and manly boy who came to the city from his country home last autumn to find work in town writes to his mother dating his letter ‘hotel’this and that, and little does the good woman dream of how dreary is the place called hotel, where her son is spending the long winter nights, sending home every cent he can spare. “Of course, there are better things in store for the boy, for he is gritty, but at present he is bravely doing the best he can and does not find a cheap lodging house unendurable.” For many young people coming to a town growing and changing in early 20th-century America, the 10- to 15-cent hotel was a first step to a better life. Perhaps in our own time, similar places still are.

The Sunday schedule is similar, with classes running from noon to 3 p.m.

Majeda Joorani, the principal of the Alef Ba Arabic Learning Center, teaches a class at the school.

The school also offers an afterschool program, tutoring and an early learning program. “This is Arabic for anyone ages 3 and up,” Joorani said. “It’s not just for Muslims; it’s for everyone.”

Arabic can be learned in anywhere from two to four months, depending on how often it’s studied and the student’s discipline, Joorani said. English can take up to six months to learn, she added. Class sizes are kept small and

normally range from 10 to 12. “Small is better to make sure kids understand more,” Joorani said. Summer school is also planned. Joorani said parents can enroll children in classes from 8 a.m. to noon or 12:30 to 5 p.m., or for the duration of the workday. Classes to help with the U.S. citizenship test are also available. These classes teach writing and speaking English, government, history, civics and geography. Class packages range in price from $10 per hour to $1,200 for weekend school. Babysitting is also offered at the Wilcox Place school for students. For more information on the Alef Ba Arabic Learning Center, call (614) 749-0654.

Coffman students are learning about a different kind of life for their production of “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.” The drama, which will be staged at 7 p.m. Feb. 17-19 at Coffman High School, 6780 Coffman Road, was adapted from the Ken Kesey novel of the same title and revolves around life at an asylum. The novel was also made into a film staring Jack Nicholson in 1975, and won five Academy Awards. The show is narrated by sophomore Robby Alamshah, who plays Chief Bromden, and begins when Randle McMurphy, played by Chris Deakin, comes

Drama teacher Dan Stowell took students in the production to Arc Industries in Delaware for a little research. “I just wanted them to see another world,” he said. Arc Industries is a far cry from an asylum, though. Stowell said it is a work center for people with mental and physical handicaps. Students in the production said the field trip was helpful. “It helped us get a perspective and different mindset on how people in different situations live,” said senior Kelly Hogan.

Foundation to honor chamber at Emerald Celebration Continued from page A1 is the largest fundraiser for the foundation and I was kind of inspired to jump in with both feet.” The Dublin Foundation awards grants each year, with the mission to “support the community and its nonprofit organizations by raising, investing and dispersing funds for the betterment of the Dublin community,” its website said.

In brief Rotary collecting children’s books The Dublin A.M. Rotary is holding is second annual Children’s Book Drive this month. The nonprofit organization is collecting new and gently used children’s books for the book drive themed “Share a World, Share a Book.” “You can make a tremendous difference in a child’s life by simply donating a book or two that you no longer need,” Julie Rinaldi, the Rotary’s literacy committee chair, said in a news release. “We received 3,000 donated books last year and we look forward to enriching the lives of more young people this year through the ‘Share a World, Share a Book’ Book Drive.’” Books donated to the rotary’s collection will go to Dublin City Schools, the Dublin branch library and the Columbus Literacy Council. “Last year, Dublin Branch Library added nearly 300 titles thanks to the generosity of Rotary and the Dublin community,” said library manager Michael Blackwell. “These books will be used over and over, delighting children while saving the library money. “Some of the school children are given books, and in some cases, this is the first and only book they have ever been able to call their own,” he said. “The joy they feel and the great commitment to reading is inspiring.” Donation boxes for the book drive can be found through Feb. 28 at the Dublin Community Recreation Center, 5600 Post Road; the Dublin branch library, 75 N. High St.; Jerome High School, 8300 Hyland-Croy Road; and Scioto High School, 4000 Hard Road.

of celebrating success and also a night to honor the chamber and its members, and also give back to the community,” she said. “It will be a nice evening. There will be a band, dinner and hopefully good company. You can catch up with old friends and meet new ones.” Garner said she’s working toward getting younger Dublin residents to the Emerald Celebration. “I’m trying to merge the generation gap a bit. That’s another area of focus, to welcome

younger generations to be a part of this and carry on the hard work of the foundation,” she said. The Emerald Celebration will begin at 6:30 p.m. Jan. 26 at the Columbus Marriott Northwest, 5605 Blazer Parkway. Arnett Howard and Friends will provide music and gift baskets will be on hand for a silent auction. Tickets can be purchased online at or by calling Garner at (614) 7911000.

Salvi’s GM hopes Students learn about customers will find handicaps for drama new Dublin restaurant Continued from page A6

By GARY BUDZAK ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Diners who couldn’t resist the Pasta Salvi won’t be able to get the fried dish in Hilliard: the Salvi’s at 1323 St. James Lutheran Lane closed on Jan. 19. The phone number to the Hilliard location remained connected last week, although the man who answered the phone said the restaurant was closed. However, the Salvi’s at 5000 Upper Metro Place (off Dublin-Granville Road), which opened last Nov. 4, remains in business. During a recent visit on a Friday night, there was a wait and some sat in chairs by a working fireplace. Yet the dishes remained unchanged from some regular diners’ gustatory memories. For others, though, the popular Pasta Salvi was a taste sensation. One woman who had never before tried the croquette, a deep-fried brick of creamy egg noodles covered in breadcrumbs, compared it to fair food. “It wasn’t because business wasn’t good,” Salvi’s general manager Matthew Moeller said of the Hilliard closing, in between serving entrees. “We don’t want anyone to forget about us or feel like we’ve alienated anybody.” Moeller said he wasn’t privy to exactly why the Hilliard location closed, but did said it was an old building. “Salvi’s had been in that building almost 15 years, and before that, it was a Country Kitchen,” he said. “We had a lot of unused space that we couldn’t really utilize on a day-to-day basis. The cost to heat and cool the place was a bit much. I know we had been putting a lot of money back into the building. At some point you have to say if we keep putting money into it, and we’re not making a profit, sometimes you have to prune a tree to make it grow.” Some of Salvi’s Hilliard employees were trans-

ferred to the Dublin location, and Moeller offered letters of recommendation to others. Another mixed bag for the Hilliard Salvi’s was its location: while it could be seen from I-70, it was confusing to get to. And although it did have a patio, the view was of traffic. Moeller hopes past Hilliard customers will drive a few more minutes to the Salvi’s in Dublin, which was previously a Stoney River Steakhouse. “It’s picking up now for us here. Dublin’s a little different. Dublin seems to go out a lot on Fridays and Saturdays. Sundays they tend to stay in a little bit, like Sunday’s a family day, getting ready to go back to work. But Sundays have turned around now that people are learning where we are and that we have the Sunday brunch too.” Moeller said Ron Salvi, whom he had worked with, “is no longer tied to the business.” Salvi opened his first restaurant in central Ohio in 1969. Salvi’s current owners bought the recipes and the name, and are striving for continuity before perhaps expanding back to two stores. “It was never our intention to close Hilliard,” Moeller said. “What we had done in Hilliard had gotten us through for many years, and we’ve done very well. Every restaurant goes through a metamorphosis to do something different. You’ve got to be kind of picky to find that right location that fits the atmosphere you want.”

She said her responsibilities include making decisions on blocking, the setting and other elements of the play. According to Hogan, the drama is not recommended for children, and shows a lot of emotion. “There are a lot of intense parts to it,” she said. “There are a lot of deeper emotions connected to it.” Senior Ashten Graham agreed. “It’s a nice mix of emotions. It definitely has heavier content than ‘Snoopy,’ but it has some light-hearted moments,” she said. “It’ll make people think a little.” “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” is not new ground for Graham. “In my psych class we watched it. I think it will be cool because a lot of people have seen it in class,” she said. “We’re just trying to figure out our own twist on it. Everybody’s bring-

ing something different to the characters.” One twist has been casting females in the male-dominated play. The asylum holds only male patients. “There are a lot of girls playing guys,” Graham said. “We have to try not being feminine as much.” Tickets to “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” can be purchased at the door and are $7 for adults and $4 for students.

Jerome looking to defend Cup title By AARON BLANKENSHIP ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Many of the participating coaches consider the Dublin Jerome High School hockey team to be the favorite to win the Blue Jackets Cup, given that the Celtics have won the tournament four of the past five years and won their first Capital Hockey Conference regular-season title this season. But Jerome coach Pat Murphy cautioned that this may be the most competitive tournament in the eight-year his-

tory of the event, which will be held Thursday, Feb. 10, Friday, Feb. 11, and Sunday, Feb. 13, at the Dispatch Ice Haus, Chiller North and Chiller Ice Works. The seeding for the Blue Jackets Cup was determined by the final standings in the CHC. Jerome and Olentangy Liberty each won a share of the CHC regular-season title with 12-1 league records and 24 points, but Jerome is seeded first in the tournament for having beaten Liberty 3-2 on Feb. 4 in the teams’head-to-head meeting.

Cincinnati Moeller (11-2, 22) was third in the final CHC standings, followed by Dublin Coffman (10-2-1, 21), St. Charles (7-4-2, 16), Upper Arlington (7-4-1-1, 16), Olentangy Orange (6-43, 15), Olentangy (7-6, 14), Thomas Worthington (5-7-1, 11), Gahanna (4-9, 8), DeSales (3-9-0-1, 7), Worthington Kilbourne (2-11, 4), Dublin Scioto (1-12, 2) and Watterson (0-13, 0). St. Charles is seeded fifth ahead of UA, having beaten UA 3-2 in overtime on Jan. 7. The bottom six teams in the CHC standings will compete in a separate six-

team consolation division of the Blue Jackets Cup to determine ninth through 14th place. That tournament starts Friday, Feb. 11, and concludes Sunday, Feb. 13, and will be held at the Ice Haus and Chiller North. “We beat Liberty, Liberty beat Coffman (4-3 on Dec. 5) and Coffman beat us (3-1 on Dec. 19) in our league games, and I don’t think you can discount Cincinnati Moeller, St. Charles or Upper Arlington from winning this either, because they’ve been right there with the three of us,” Murphy said. “In a one-

game playoff, any team can beat anyone else on a given night. I don’t think many people expected us to win the Blue Jackets Cup the first two years we did it, so that goes to show that you have to play well and take every game very seriously.” The Celtics were seeded fourth in the Blue Jackets Cup a year ago, but beat fifth-seeded St. Charles 3-0, upset topseeded Liberty 3-0 and rallied to beat third-seeded Moeller 4-3 in the final.

Stranges guiding hopes for Coffman By THAD PLUMLEY ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Meredith Stranges was a freshman earning varsity minutes when the Dublin Coffman High School girls basketball team won its first Division I district title three years ago. Now a senior, Stranges is hoping for another long postseason run. “I’m excited about the tournament,” said Stranges, a center who was a key reserve on the Shamrocks squad that won a second district title two years ago. “The other senior captains (Stacy Axner and Sarah McQuade) and I were talking and we all think we can do well. Our team is focused at getting better in practice every day and we’re working hard. We’re optimistic.” Coffman, seeded 11th in the district tournament, begins the postseason on Wednesday, Feb. 16, against Lancaster at Olentangy. The winner advances to a second-round matchup Feb. 23 against Delaware or Westerville North at Westerville Central. The Gales, which was 5-12 before playing Pickerington North on Feb. 8, play in the OCC-Ohio Division, which produced four of the top eight seeds in the tournament: Reynoldsburg (first), North (fifth), Gahanna (seventh) and Newark (eighth). “They’re from a very good conference,” Shamrocks coach Bryan Patton said. “They have some guards who can shoot and they’re playing their best basketball right now, which is what you want this time of year. We know we have to come to play.” There is no doubt that Stranges will play a vital role if Coffman makes another tournament run. The 6-foot-1 lefthander averages 15.5 points a game and scored 12 to 21 points in all the games in which she’s played. She missed a 65-29 win over Hilliard Darby on Feb. 4 with a broken nose but was scheduled to return on Feb. 8 against Hilliard Davidson. “She is a really, really smart player,” Patton said. “Her basketball IQ is tremendous. You tell her something and it’s ingrained. She rarely makes a mental mistake. ... That’s been valuable because we’re a young team.”

With their regular seasons completed, the Dublin Coffman, Dublin Jerome and Dublin Scioto high school swimming and diving teams have turned their attention to the postseason and the ultimate goal of reaching the Division I state meet on Feb. 24-26. The teams tuned up for this weekend’s sectional meets by competing in the Dublin Classic on Feb. 5 at the Dublin Recreation Center. Coffman swept top honors, as the boys team (73 points) finished ahead of Jerome (67) and Scioto (46) and the girls team (85) defeated the Celtics (76) and Irish (25). “One of our main goals this year was to win the Dublin Classic,” Shamrocks senior Tim O’Brien said. Coffman and Scioto will compete in the Upper Arlington sectional on Saturday, Feb. 12, and Jerome will compete in the Thomas Worthington sectional See COFFMAN, page B4 the same day.

The Shamrocks’ Rachel McNeil competes in the 200 IM on Feb. 5. Coffman scored 85 points to defeat Jerome (76) and Scioto (25).

•At UA, the Golden Bears are again expected to dominate the team competitions, but Coffman is hoping to challenge for a topthree finish in both boys and girls. The first- and second-place finishers in each boys and girls event from the UA and Thomas sectional sites will advance to the district tournament Feb. 18-19 at Ohio State. There will be 26 at-large

qualifiers based on times from those sectional sites and the East and Southeast district sectionals. Last season at the UA sectional, the Shamrocks girls finished third (160) behind first-place UA (389) and the boys were fifth (81) behind champion UA (355). Coffman coach Steven VonSchrilitz expects several swimmers to reach district, and he hopes

During a recent three-game losing streak, Dublin Scioto High School boys basketball coach Tony Bisutti watched his team collapse twice in the fourth quarter with the game on the line. All it took was a turnover or a couple of offensive rebounds to help the opponent turn the tide. They were frustrating moments for a veteran coach who can’t help but see improvement despite going 6-10 overall and 3-8 in the OCC-Cardinal Division before a Feb. 8 game at Olentangy Liberty. “We’ve identified how we have to play and settled into our roles and you’ve just got to feel at some point and time we’re going to break through and not only execute but come up with a big play,” Bisutti said. “We thought we had great chances to win two of those three games because we were at home.” The Irish snapped the losing streak with a 69-45 win at Linden-McKinley on Feb. 5. But the losses to Westerville Central (50-43 on Feb. 4) and Westerville North (64-58 on Jan. 28) made it only more difficult to reach .500 heading into the postseason. Against Central, Scioto scored the

first seven points of the fourth quarter to cut the lead to 41-40, but it didn’t score again until there were 10 seconds left. Senior guard Raneal Ewing scored a career-high 35 points against North and the Irish had a 45-44 lead in the fourth quarter. There were five lead changes before the Warriors went on a 9-0 run to secure the win.

Ewing’s 35 points were three short of Ish Kamara’s school record of 38 against Reynoldsburg in 1997. “It does get frustrating because we play hard and we end up falling short,” said Ewing, who entered the week averaging 16 points a game. “But we’re still looking to make a run. The season’s coming to a close and guys have been stepping up.”

points, Sarah Auker had seven and both Carrel and Katherine McCoy added six. “It’s a huge game because we would like to be the best team in Dublin,” Carrel said. “We already beat Coffman and this will be our senior night. We’re going to be fired up for this one.” The Celtics started strong against Coffman and Olentangy. They led 13-4 after the first quarter against the Shamrocks and 127 after the first period against Olentangy. Jerome didn’t hold the early lead against Olentangy, but Carrel made a basket as time expired in the first half to tie the game at 20. “It was kind of a broken play, but it worked out well,” said Carrel, who scored 13 of her 18 points in the first half. Martin said Carrel is playing with confidence. “We see that from Brooke all of the time,” he said. “She played tough and she is one of our lead-

ers. She came out and hit the big shots and that’s how you beat someone like Olentangy.” Kaitlyn Miller scored 12 of her 16 points in the fourth quarter as the Celtics held on. “Kaitlyn was sick (against Olentangy), but she’s a born leader,” Martin said. “She wants the ball at the end of the game. She loves the competition and she’s a winner. She went 6-for-7 on free throws and scored 12 points in the fourth quarter.” The Division I district tournament draw was Feb. 6 at Liberty. Martin left the meeting with his team pitted against New Albany at 8 p.m. Feb. 19 in a first-round game at Olentangy. The winner plays Groveport or 12th-seeded Hilliard Davidson at 8 p.m. Feb. 25 at Olentangy. “We’re playing hard, but we could be playing better,” Martin said.

Jerome also won Blue Jackets Cup titles in 2006, ’07 and ’08. Murphy said he plans to give each of his four forward lines a lot of playing time throughout the Blue Jackets Cup in an effort to wear down his opponents, especially in the second and third rounds of the event. Among Jerome’s scoring leaders are James Eastep (32 goals, 14 assists), Blair Comfort (11 goals, 26 assists) and Chase Compton (23 goals, 10 assists). All three of the Celtics’ goaltenders — West Faulkenberry, Cameron Gutman and Josh Howell — have played well and could see action. “Playing four lines has been our philosophy and our game plan all along, and it’s worked in the Blue Jackets Cup in the past, so we’ll stick with it,” Murphy said. “All four lines are doing really well and we’ve been scoring well in most of our games. We’ve had fantastic goaltending, too, so the key is to play good defense to keep our goals against down. If we give up three or less goals per game, I think we’ll be OK.” Liberty coach Jack Hoogeveen said his team will need to play patient and disciplined hockey to win its first Blue Jackets Cup. “Our system is a neutral-zone forecheck, and when we’re forechecking well, we can be a tough team to beat,” Hoogeveen said. “The key is to play within our system and to avoid defensive breakdowns.” The Patriots feature three highscoring forward lines, led the by first line of Christopher Bergamesca (15 goals, 29 assists), Noah Allmaras (11 goals, 10 assists) and Jimmy Ruska (23 goals, 22 assists).

Coffman seniors make college decisions By AARON BLANKENSHIP

On the web

ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Dublin Coffman High School girls soccer coach Marc D’Auteuil isn’t the least bit surprised that three members of his senior class earned the opportunity to play at the next level. On Feb. 2, Olivia Evans (University of North Carolina-Charlotte) and Kenzie Schlemitz (Bowling Green State University) signed letters of intent to accept Division I college soccer scholarships. Two days later, Allie Schlemitz announced that she would play for Division III national semifinalist Otterbein University. Last season, the trio helped lead the Shamrocks to a 14-3-4 record and a Division I district title. Coffman ended its season with a 1-0 overtime loss to Pickerington North in a regional final on Nov. 6. With Evans and Kenzie Schlemitz starting on defense, the Shamrocks posted 14 shutouts and allowed only nine goals despite playing a grueling schedule against opponents that had a combined record of 203-129-40. As juniors, the trio helped lead Coffman finish 14-6-3 and win a district championship and regional title before losing to Medina 4-0 in the state final. “All three of them started as freshmen and it was fun to see them grow as soccer players, people and leaders,” D’Auteuil said. “Those three were instrumental in our success, and all three of them found places that fit their needs, not only soccer-wise, but also in terms

Coffman seniors announced their college decisions during a ceremony Feb. 3. From left are: Megan Collins (Dayton, track), Allie Schlemitz (Otterbein, soccer), Max Phelps (Holy Cross, football), Olivia Evans (North Carolina-Charlotte, soccer) and Kenzie Schlemitz (Bowling Green, soccer).

of academics.” Evans was second-team all-state and first-team all-district and all-OCC-Central Division as a senior after being named second-team all-league in each of the previous three seasons. The senior sweeper/outside fullback took unofficial visits to several schools, but she made a verbal commitment to UNC-Charlotte coach John Cullen in

October 2009 shortly after visiting the school’s campus. “I looked at Toledo, Butler and Dayton, too, but I was almost positive from the beginning that I wanted to get out of Ohio, because I love playing in hot weather,” Evans said. “When I took my visit, I stayed with a freshman on the team, met the entire team and had a oneon-one meeting with coach Cullen. They

showed a lot of interest in me and it just felt like the right fit.” Last season, UNC-Charlotte went 165, shared the Atlantic-10 Conference title with Dayton and advanced to the final of the conference tournament where they lost to Dayton 4-3. “I want to go in and be someone who will affect games in a positive way,” said Evans, who plans on majoring in pub-

lic health. Kenzie Schlemitz was first-team alldistrict and all-league as a senior after being named second-team all-league in 2009. After considering Cornell, Duke and Duquesne, the senior defender surprised herself by making a verbal commitment to Bowling Green coach Andy Richards last June. “I originally blew off Bowling Green because my dad (Kurt) played lacrosse there and when we would drive by the campus when I was little, I always thought it was ugly,” Schlemitz said. “But when my other options weren’t the right place for me, I visited Bowling Green in June and it looked so pretty. It seemed more open and colorful and not dull and ugly like I remembered it to be. I met with coach Richards and I just enjoyed the whole experience.” Last season, the Falcons went 4-124 overall and finished 2-6-3 in the MidAmerican Conference. “I want to get a lot of playing time and mature as a player each season,” Schlemitz said. “I’m going to major in either physical therapy or criminal justice. Hopefully, I’ll figure out what I want to do once I get there, because those two majors are so different.”


Scioto’s Miles looks to make impact at Villanova By SCOTT GERFEN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Asked to describe himself as a football player, Dublin Scioto High School senior Jerry Miles paused for a moment and offered up the word dependable. “If something needs to get done, I get it done,” he said. His coaches wouldn’t argue. Miles, who was honorable mention all-state and first-team alldistrict in Division II and firstteam all-OCC-Cardinal Division, even impressed longtime Villanova

University football coach Andy Talley, who welcomed Miles as one of 19 players who signed a letter of intent with the Wildcats on Feb. 2. Miles, 5-foot-11, 200 pounds, was recruited as a safety. He was both an offensive and defensive starter last season for the Irish, who finished 6-4 overall and 4-3 in the OCC-Cardinal, tying Olentangy and Olentangy Liberty for third behind Westerville South (61) and Dublin Jerome (5-2). Villanova is coming off a season in which it finished 9-5 and

advanced to a Football Championship Subdivision semifinal for the second consecutive season. The Wildcats won the 2009 FCS national championship. “I think they liked his size, speed and athleticism and his durability to play just about anywhere,” Scioto coach Karl Johnson said. “He was certainly a playmaker for us and really stood out in every big game regardless of where he was playing.” In a 20-6 loss to MarionFranklin on Sept. 3, Miles returned a fumble recovery 90 yards for a

touchdown. On Sept. 10, he prevented a Worthington Kilbourne touchdown in the Irish’s 31-14 win in “The Battle of Hard Road” when he forced a fumble at the goal line. His touchdown runs of 16 and 25 yards against Westerville Central on Oct. 8 helped the Irish win 16-9 in a game that came down to the final play. Miles finished his senior season as Scioto’s second-leading rusher with 665 yards and six touchdowns on 113 carries. Only sophomore William Houston (908

yards, 202 attempts, six touchdowns) had more rushing yards. Miles, who was the team’s leading receiver with 29 catches for 327 yards and three touchdowns, hopes to make an immediate impact at Villanova. “They’re losing three defensive backs and I plan on going in and taking a spot,” he said. “I really like the type of defense they run. Coach Talley says they blitz about 80 percent of the time. He definitely sees me getting some playing time.” Villanova is currently a mem-

ber of the Big East Conference in all sports except football. The school’s board of trustees is scheduled to meet in April to decide whether to accept an invitation to the conference. The Wildcats currently compete in the Colonial Athletic Association. “It would certainly be a step up in competition if that happened,” Miles said. “It’s a great campus and it’s about 10 minutes outside of Philadelphia, where they have a lot of pro sports. It’s really a great area.”

Continued from page B1 Stranges also is averaging eight rebounds, two steals and two assists a game and is shooting 85.1 percent at the free-throw line. Last season, Stranges averaged 12 points and shot 53 percent from the floor and 73 percent from the foul line. All were team highs. She also averaged six rebounds to rank second on the squad. She was a first-team allOCC-Central selection. “She’s always had a good backto-the-basket game, but she has really improved her play this year facing the basket,” Patton said. “She uses her off hand better and she’s a better ball-handler, too. She’s really improved on the perimeter.” Stranges has been a part of several championships at Coffman. Along with the two basketball district titles, she was on the Shamrocks volleyball team that won district the last four years and finished as the Division I state runner-up the last two seasons. In the fall, she will continue her volleyball career at Southeast Missouri State University, where she will be reunited with 2010 Coffman graduate Andrea Baylin, a volleyball and basketball teammate for three years. First, though, Stranges wants to make another long postseason run in basketball. “It’s unreal that this is it,” she said. “I remember when I was a

freshman hearing seniors say it goes so fast and I thought ‘Yeah right,’ but it really does. I am enjoying all of it right now. We have fun with all of the girls every day. We don’t want the season to end.”

said. “I’m ranked in the top 10 (in district) in both of my events. I just need to get ready to go.” O’Brien is ranked fifth (2:01) in the 200 IM and seventh in the 100 back (55.44). For the girls, Nichole Gill hopes to return to state in the 100 breaststroke and 200 IM. She is ranked first in the district in the 100 breast (1:06.80). “I think we’re ready,” VonSchrilitz said. “We’ve shown some pretty good signs (at the Dublin Classic). Leading into our taper, we’re swimming pretty well. Hopefully, we’ll taper well and have a great championship.” •Jerome coach Tyler Prose said his concern during the postseason would be individual performances rather than team finishes. The Celtics did not qualify a swimmer for state last season, but Prose believes several have a chance this season. “The kids are getting ready, they’re getting faster,” Prose said. “We’re not really concerned about winning sectionals or anything like that. We’re worried about qualifying the most kids to districts.” Juniors Matt Minns and Jake Moore and sophomore Tanner Barton should lead the boys team. Barton is ranked first in the district in the 100 butterfly (53.74). Divers Jacob Kasper (262.10 points) and Grant Saale (256.25) are ranked second and third, respectively, in the district. Last season at state, Kasper was 16th (159.85) and Saale was 18th (156.50). Freshman Morgan Quesnel has emerged as a top swimmer on the girls team, as she has twice set the program record in the 100 fly (59.20). She is ranked fourth in the district in the 50 free (24.91) and seventh in the 100 fly. Last season at the Thomas sectional, the girls were sixth (107) behind first-place Olentangy Liberty (215) and the boys were eighth (72) behind champion Thomas (202). •Although Scioto lacks the depth needed

to have success at the team level, the Irish have several swimmers who should contend for a state berth. Leading the way should be sophomore Liz Harty for the girls and senior Sean Earley and freshman Ida Hayato for the boys. Harty is looking to return to state in the 100 free and 100 fly. Last year, she was seventh in both the 100 free (53.0) and 100 fly (57.87). “I’m close to where I want to be,” Harty said. “My times are like a second or two close to my personal best times, which is good because that means when I’m tapered and when I’m feeling good I’m going to swim a lot faster than I am now, which will put my times faster than my personal best times. I’m excited. I’m really hoping to do well at sectionals, districts and states.” Earley was a member of the 12th-place 400 free relay (3:15.88) and 14th-place 200 medley relay (1:39.26) at state last year.

Continued from page B2 by either team,” Hoogeveen said. “We’ve got three balanced lines and they all can score, and we play well in our defensive end, too. But our goaltenders have done a great job of keeping us in games all season, and we’re going to need them to come through for us in this tournament, because there are a lot of good scorers in our league.” Coffman is aiming for its fourth Blue Jackets Cup title. The Shamrocks won the first two events in 2004 and ’05 and captured their third title in ’09. Coach Perry Pooley said his team needs to utilize its skating speed and create scoring chances

with quick, accurate passing. “We’ve got to keep our feet moving, and we’ve got to move the puck and be smart with it,” Pooley said. “We can’t have turnovers in the neutral zone, and we need to tighten up our neutral-zone forecheck.” The Shamrocks feature the most prolific scoring line in central Ohio in Kevin Putnam (43 goals, 46 assists), Sam O’Brien (29 goals, 54 assists) and Ian Flinders (35 goals, 27 assists). But Pooley said it’s crucial that his team also gets production from its second line of A.J. Early (seven goals, 13 assists), Nick Kreber (11 goals, eight assists) and Chris DiBiase (nine goals, five assists).

“We’ll try to play three or four forward lines to keep our top line fresh, because it can do some damage in a hurry,” Pooley said. Leading Coffman’s defense are Gregory Strine (11 goals, 16 assists), Eric Gute (one goal, eight assists) and Matt Terry (seven assists). Senior defenseman Matt Smith (eight goals, seven assists) has missed the last 15 games with a broken wrist but may return for the Blue Jackets Cup. Senior Nathan Schuman (175-2-1 record, 2.10 goals against average, 90.8 save percentage) is expected to start in goal. “Our goalie has been outstanding in the big games throughout the second half of the season,

Below are the first-round games on Thursday, Feb. 10, in the Blue Jackets Cup: Dublin Jerome vs. Olentangy at Dispatch Ice Haus; Olentangy Liberty vs. Olentangy Orange at Ice Haus; Cincinnati Moeller vs. Upper Arlington at Chiller Ice Works; Dublin Coffman vs. St. Charles at Ice Works Below are the first-round games on Friday, Feb. 11, in the Blue Jackets Cup consolation division. Gahanna and Thomas Worthington each has a first-round bye: Worthington Kilbourne vs. Dublin Scioto at Chiller North; DeSales vs. Watterson at Ice Haus

and we’ll need him to come up big for us once again in the Blue Jackets Cup,” Pooley said.

Dublin company earns innovation award One Dublin company earned honors at TechColumbus’ Inno-

vation Awards last week. The team of Davion Hill,Yumei Zhai, Arun Agarwal, Kyle Hilgafort, Noy Kelly, Vince Arnett, Francois Ayello, Steinar Lyngroth, Erik Hektor, Tore Myhrvold, and Narasi Sridhar won the “Outstanding Technology Team” award for its work at DNV Columbus in Dublin. DNV Columbus is a multinational company and the team “has put together a unique set of tools to convert carbon dioxide into useful chemicals,” with a team in Oslo, Norway, a news release from TechColumbus said. “The team worked across geographies to build a demonstration system to convert CO2 into formic acid sustainably. Together, this team has demonstrated that you can create a useful future with CO2 rather than just bury it and let your future generations take responsibility for it,” the release said. More than 20 Dublin companies were semifinalists for Innovation Awards from TechColumbus and winners were chosen by independent judges.

Laurie Berkner Band

and all of a sudden you’re a children’s music superstar! Well, in Laurie Berkner’s case, it wasn’t quite “all of a sudden” – and the music video spots on Nick Jr. didn’t hurt.

Morgan and his band live in the rough edges of country, the kind cut by Waylon Jennings, David Allan Coe and Johnny Paycheck. Top it all off with lots of flannel and denim and amps cranking out sounds pounded out from the band’s Fender Telecasters Whitey Morgan and it’s honky-tonk heaven, friends.

people and plans both remaining hidden when necessary so no one can tell the true intent. This production also requires much of the same from the cast, including a woman with blonde hair playing a woman with flowing brown locks, a 25-year-old man portraying two different characters (both many years his senior) and a young woman transforming into a 15-year-old boy. The fair-haired and fair-skinned Anne-Carolyn Bird spends so much time — between 30 and 45 minutes — applying “more makeup than Miss America” to look that part of a brunette, that there’s not enough time to dye her hair and keep it looking good. “I love being a brunette,” Bird, who plays Susanna, Figaro’s intended and the object of his master’s affection as well, told The Beat. “I wear a gorgeous brown wig that’s very long, all the way down to my waist.” The period costuming helps the singing actors take on their varied roles as well, as Bird attempted to describe with as much delicacy as possible. “One of the aspects of this time period is the women wear corsets,” she explained. “Susanna is a little bit of a flirt, and there are two times in the production where I bow in such a way that presents certain … assets … to a gentleman.” “I would never do that as Anne-Carolyn Bird, but it’s fun to inhabit that world,” Bird said. Kirsten Gunlogson has much the opposite situation. As the 15-year-old boy Cherubino, her transformation is even more dramatic. “It’s different than putting a dress on,” said the veteran of numerous ‘trouser’ roles. But even once I’ve got the jacket and boots on and the wig and the makeup, it’s more important how it feels. I don’t want to be hindered in creating the physicality of the character. “Cherubino’s a young boy, he’s youthful and exuberant and there are times when I scamper around the stage,” she added. “Plus there is a lot that goes into the time period and the character as far as how I hold my arms and what to do with myself when I’m just standing, or how I walk or sit in a chair or take someone’s hand.” The physical mannerisms are key for Stefan Barner, who plays both Don Basilio and Don Curzio, both older men but with very different personalities. “It’s amazing what they can do with makeup and wigs to make you look like a totally different person,” Barner explained. “But the singing and the acting have to be different as well.”

Opera Columbus will present Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro Friday and Sunday, Feb. 11 and 13, at the Ohio Theatre. Tickets are $100$7.50. Call (614) 461-8101.

He added that the different look and feel of each costume helps distinguish for him the differing requirements of each character. Don Basilio is a coconspirator with the Count, smarmy and self-serving, while Don Curzio is a lawyer in full gown who also happens to be quite the bumbler. “How I walk and my body carriage are totally different and even little things like facial expressions,” Barner said. “I spend a lot of time in my hotel room pacing around and making faces in the mirror.” Bird, whose Susanna is a servant to the Countess, said the way the characters interact is a significant way to convey to the audience the difference in their social standing. “I encourage the audience to watch who touches whom, and in what context,” Bird said. “It says a lot about the relationships of the characters.” “My biggest compliment is when people tell me how much I seem like a boy,” Gunlogson said. “You want the audience to be transported in their imagination. That’s what theater is.” For more on Opera Columbus’ production of The Marriage of Figaro, read the BeatBlog at

La Casita is one of the best Mexican restaurants in town When people ask me — and they frequently do — what’s the best Mexican restaurant in Columbus, I can tell they usually mean “Mexican restaurant of a certain type.” In other words, instead of, say, a bare-bones mom-n-popper in the back of a market, they probably want a gringo-friendly party palace with good free chips and salsa, boat-sized slushy margaritas, bouncy music and a colorphoto-filled, order-by-number menu approximately the size of the Mexico City phone book. Nothing wrong with all that, I go to those places too. Anyway, if you’re seeking a toptier version of such a fun-forward establishment, look no further than the terrific La Casita. This place rocks. And on the rocks is how you should order your margarita here.

MENU by G.A. Benton And if you order La Casita’s “Original” (made with fresh lime juice, Hornitos tequila and Cointreau) with half the sugar (as I do), you’ll be drinking one of the best margaritas in Columbus. Sip on that smile-making quaff and check out this raucous, fiesta-happy joint. Yes, it’s bright and bouncy and has all of those aforementioned attributes of the standard burrito haunt. But it’s also smaller and cozier, and nicer in most every way — including its cheery, polished wood-paneled walls, arched brick-rimmed windows and loopy wooden chairs with wickery accents.

Fajitas Del Mar, Birria and the “Original” margarita at La Casita.

Oh yeah, and La Casita’s food is better too. A good starter is the refreshing Tostada de Ceviche ($3).

A nice, crispy fried corn tortilla was piled high with diced whitefish, plenty of carrot, onion, a touch of jalapeno and cilantro. A fresh and creamy avocado slice helped balance the bright flavors. For a considerably more substantial appetizer, opt for the wonderful Birria ($5.50 per “cup”). A veritable bucket of rich, tender, juicy and perfectly salty pot roast chunks was swimming in a thin, glistening red chili sauce. It wasn’t overly spicy, just really delicious. Considerably more heat emanated from the flaming hot Torta Ahogada ($7.29). A huge, flat and puffy roll was packed with carnitas pork plus a guacamole schmear, then totally soaked in an incendiary, devil-red chili broth. Highly recommended, but only for asbestos-throated types.

La Casita Mexican Restaurant 1355 Bethel Road 614-457-0823 Cuisine: Mexican Price: $ (up to $10 per person) Patio: Yes Hours: 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Sunday-Thursday, 11 a.m.-11 p.m. Friday-Saturday Milder pork arrived with the almost elegant Lomo de Puerco ($11). Three large but lean slabs of rosemary-scented and just-notdry pork loin were lightly doused in a chili sauce, cheese and pico de gallo. Comes with rice and beans — choose the soupy and excellent whole pintos. The Fajitas del Mar ($17) breathed life into that ubiquitous cast-iron dish. This one had a big

ol’ nice-tasting and flaky fish (tilapia) plus an ocean of good seared shrimp and scallops. Like real tacos? Served on soft corn tortillas with radishes, lime, onion and cilantro, La Casita’s are the real deal and a steal of a deal at $2 each. Try the barbacoa, carnitas or chicken — all were juicy and delicious. As for the towering slice of milky and comforting Tres Leches cake I had for dessert ($4.59), my friendly waiter told me his wife made it. I told him he was a fortunate man. You’ll be a fortunate diner if you choose to get your Mexican food at La Casita. To read G.A. Benton’s blog, visit

Baker mad about new opportunity in Olde Towne East Vicki Hink thinks her new café is a good fit for Olde Towne East, an intimate, tight-knit neighborhood where residents value each other and stores in the area. “I don’t think it will ever be a Short North with tons of business and all of that, but I don’t know if everyone wants it to be that busy,” said Hink, owner of the recently opened The Angry Baker, 891 Oak St. The 900-squarefoot restaurant seats 14. Open for breakfast, lunch and early dinner hours, the eatery is specifically known for baked goods, such as the caramel brioche cinnamon roll, Dr. Pepper cake (filled with chocolate ganache and crushed blackberries), croissants and chocolate chip cookies. The menu is rounded out by savory goods, including a variety of soup and sandwiches such as the crispy chicken thigh, clover greens, fried egg and dressed with chimichurri. There’s also a vegan option — sloppy joes made with lentils. Sandwich prices, including breakfast options, range from $5.25 to $8.25. Sweets are a buck to $4.50 for a slice of cake. Hink said she is trying to buy local as much as possible, a common expression for today’s conscientious restaurant owner. For example, she buys Ludlow cheese from Blue Jacket Dairy in Bellefontaine, turkey from Cooper Farms in St. Henry and maple syrup, among other items, from Stutzman Farms in Millersburg. A graduate of Columbus State Community College’s culinary program, Hink has worked locally at such places as Hyde Park, Z Cucina and Bakery Gingham. By Lorrie Cecil/ThisWeek “I’ve worked for a couple of places and I Vicki Hink, owner of The Angry Baker, is seen here with her brioche always wanted to do my own thing,” she said. cinnamon rolls with caramel, an eclair and a piece of Dr Pepper “I guess I planned to do it a little bit later in life but it all kind of happened.” cake. The Angry Baker opened Jan. 28 at 891 Oak St.

Despite the name of her restaurant, Hink said she’s really not mad at anybody. “It was kind of a funny nickname from an old bakery I used to work at,” she said. “It just kind of stuck.” Old Towne East, one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods, is located on the Near East Side of town. Hink, who lives in the area, said there’s a vibrant, built-in dining culture that frequents such neighborhood haunts as Yellow Brick Pizza and Black Creek Bistro. And there’s room for more, she said. “I really love the neighborhood,” she said. “And I knew we were really in the need for something like this.” The Angry Baker is open six days a week, closed Monday. For more information, call 614-947-0976. As of Feb. 1, Luce was back in the hands of its original owners. Chef Alex Rodriguez has returned the Powell restaurant to John and Mike Ciotola, and Randy Turturice. Rodriguez, who purchased Luce two and a half years ago, will stay on as chef for another month, Mike Ciotola said. The Ciotolas and Turturice founded Luce (pronounced loo-chay) almost six years ago at 3499 Market St. It started out as a casual Italian restaurant with an extensive wine list. The partnership sold the restaurant to Rodriguez in July 2008. He kept the name and wine inventory and added a Latin touch to the menu. Mike Ciotola, who now lives in Naples, Fla., said the menu will change considerably. He has hired Wes Thompson, a former sous chef at the restaurant, and will retain current

Luce sous chef Phillip Goulis. “We want to move more toward classic Italian, simple preparations with really fresh ingredients,” Ciotola said. “We’re going to try get as much local stuff as we can, as much organic stuff as we can.” It’s been 18 months since the brothers sold La Scala, the iconic Italian restaurant in Dublin founded by their father, the late Bennie Ciotola.
