Arlington Avenue reconstruction

Mallway merchants: Get it done on time By CHRIS BOURNEA ThisWeek Community Newspapers Upper Arlington City Council members will have a week to decide how to proceed with the upcoming reconstruction of Arlington Avenue. At their conference session Feb. 7, council members listened to concerns from Mallway business owners who said the construction project, which is scheduled to begin March 18 and last until late August, could keep customers away. Stephanie Berland, proprietor of Stephanie’s

Salon and head of the Mallway merchants’association, said there are concerns that the project could run over schedule. “If this project … were to run over, we’re into our crucial holiday months,” Berland said. Connie Leal Ballenger, who owns the building at the corner of Arlington Avenue and Guilford Road that houses the Leal clothing boutique and other shops, said there were delays during the initial phase of the Arlington Avenue reconstruction See MALLWAY, page A5

Consultant will be enlisted to help in search for new city manager By GARY BUDZAK ThisWeek Community Newspapers Upper Arlington’s next city manager will be selected with the help of a consultant or search firm. Interested firms and individuals have until 1 p.m. Monday, Feb. 14, to submit their qualifications to the city. The city’s request for

qualifications includes a company profile, experience on similar projects, references, a summary of the search process and costs. “The ideal consultant will have experience and expertise in, including but not limited to, executive searches for the public sector, nonprofit and the private industry,” the city website states. “We want to look for a company to help

the city council, instead of just posting and getting a bunch of resumes,” said Regina Drzewiecki, deputy city manager, human resources. Someone interested in becoming the next city manager, however, can still apply for the position through the city, Drzewiecki said. See MANAGER, page A6

Each school submits a limited number of pieces based on student population. Students and teachers volunteered their time to hang the elementary school show, Santoro-Au said. “When we hang the show, we do so very thoughtfully,” she said. “We try to get the younger kids near the bottom. That way, they can stand next to the artwork.” Santoro-Au said several families have stopped in to view the exhibit and take photos of students

so we really depend on the mutual-aid because we’re a small department,” Kochensparger said. “No matter how much you prepare for a situation like this, it will still stress the system.” The city met Jan. 31 before the storm to coordinate its resources, including the shifting of some parks and recreation staff to help the forestry workers clear debris during and after the storm, said according to Emma Speight, deputy city manager for community affairs. “(Assistant City Manager) Joe (Valentino) got all the department heads together before the storm to make sure the plans were in place to make this situation go as smoothly as possible,” Speight said. “It was very much a team effort.” City workers began spreading brine and salt just prior to the storm to keep the streets passable for residents.

The Concourse Gallery at the Upper Arlington Municipal Building is a “wonderful array of art and talent and colors,” according to city arts manager Lynette Santoro-Au. An exhibit featuring the work of UA elementary school students is on view through Feb. 11. Works on display come from students at Barrington, Greensview, Tremont, Wickliffe, Windermere, Wellington, St. Andrew and St. Agatha elementary schools. “Annually, we show work of the elementary school students, middle school students and high school students,” Santoro-Au said. Featured pieces are selected by teachers who use a “thoughtful

The power is back on, but the cleanup continues following last week’s ice storm. “During storm situations, AEP does not clear debris from customers’ yards in order to allow work crews to restore power more rapidly,” said AEP Ohio spokesperson Vikki Michalski. According to AEP-s website, at the height of the ice storm Feb. 1, more than 181,444 central Ohio customers were without service. The company brought in extra resources, and by Thursday afternoon nearly all Upper Arlington residents had their power restored. Resident Pete Cline said that he and his Herrick Road neighbors hunkered down with generators and fireplaces after losing power around 8 p.m. Tuesday. “We saw candles glowing from everyone’s houses,” he said. “It was like we were living in a different time.” Upper Arlington Fire Department spokesperson Dan Kochensparger said the ice made it necessary to bring a fourth team member on medic runs to provide better safety while carrying patients. Kochensparger said there were 58 storm-related calls, including two mutual-aid calls given to Columbus in response to structure fires, one of which was caused by a burning candle. “Everything related to the storm is on top of the normal work load,

The city’s Parks and Forestry crews are only responsible for clearing fallen limbs and branches from trees in the public right-of-way. This process is already under way, but may take some time because of continuing wintry conditions and available equipment and staffing. Property owners are responsible for clearing and disposing of downed tree limbs on private property. Limbs and branches should be placed at the curb as part of the city’s yard waste program, according to the following guidelines: Yard waste is picked up on

regular trash collection days and should be placed at the curb by 7 a.m. to ensure pick-up.  Bundles cannot exceed five feet in length or 50 pounds in weight and should be tied with biodegradable string;  Each bundle must have one Solid Waste sticker affixed. Residents who prefer can take branches and limbs themselves to the Roberts Road Regional Composting Facility free of charge. Current hours are 7 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Questions may be directed to the Parks and Forestry Division at 583-5340.

Upper Arlington’s latest restaurant is a casual affair, a place where patrons are encouraged to test the vast expanse of their palates, whether it’s with wine or food or both. The Wine Bistro is wrapped in warm earth tones, said Christine Dargusch, marketing director for the concept at 1755 W. Lane Ave. “We provide an opportunity for exploration and adventure,” Dargusch said of the café, part of a new development from Metropolitan Partners. Wine is the obvious focus of the bistro, which offers 500 labels from around the globe. Dargusch said the restaurant features many smaller vineyards to keep

ises is waived on Monday and Tuesday. For those who prefer beer, there are roughly a dozen craft options. Open for two weeks, the bistro soon will roll out wine tastings, classes and cooking demonstrations, Dargusch said. Food is another important aspect of the bistro, which is open for lunch and dinner daily. Since the first Wine Bistro opened last year in Lewis Center, the menu has evolved, she said. It now offers a variety of starters, cheeses, flatbreads, baguettes, wrap sandwiches, soups, salads, pasta and desserts. Chocolate – a triplechocolate pot de crème – is among the offerings. New to the lineup are the scal-

lops Alfredo over spaghetti; and individual bread pudding with a port cherry reduction. Most entrees are $10 to $18. “We have a little something for everyone,” general manager Jenna Liguore said. All items, made from scratch from original recipes, were conceived with wine in mind, said Rob Lindeman, a partner in the restaurant. “We created the dishes to pair very well with wines and also have them be shareable so that people could have several courses and wines over one sitting,” he said. The layout is designed to suit intimate dinners as well as larger parties, Dargusch said. There

ing as well as a small banquet room that seats about 15. The lounge area has seating at the bar as well as tables. Customers will also notice a small and deliberate omission: TVs. “We are not a sports bar,” Dargusch said.

Continued from page A1 The severity of the storm caused city salt resources to dwindle, Speight said. “We are nearing the end of our salt supply, so if winter brings more storms, we will have to buy more,” she said. “We have that option, but we don’t yet know what that additional cost looks like.” While salt and debris clearing were key functions during an event like last week’s, Speight said other city resources were useful as well. “When we realized how many residents were without power, we opened up our Senior Center as a shelter until the Red Cross was able to get its regional shelter open,” she said. Upper Arlington Public Library spokesperson Ruth McNeil said residents without power were also camping out at the library. Catherine Cline, Pete Cline’s wife, was one of the people camped out there. “The power was off at home and work so my daughter and I had breakfast at Panera and then went to the library where we could check e-mail and play,” she said. Cline was thankful to have power restored on Thursday, and said she appreciates that her family can now restock their firewood with the fallen tree debris. Residents are asked to contact the city’s forestry division at 583-5340 about tree debris in the public right-of-way. Any debris on private property can be taken to the SWACO Regional Composting Facility on Roberts Road or follow the yard waste guidelines on the city website,

next to their work. Last year, the Cultural Arts Division did an installation show called “Out of the Booth and Into the Gallery.” One of the artists featured in the show was Kelly Zalenski, a former Upper Arlington student. “She remembered coming into the gallery and seeing her artwork on the walls,” Santoro-Au said. “I don’t know that it put her on the path of art as a career, but it certainly did make an impact.” The middle school exhibit will run from Feb. 16-28, and the high school exhibit will run March 315. The student series will be followed by juried exhibits featuring professional artists. The Concourse Gallery is open to the public from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Alternate viewing times can be arranged by contacting Santoro-Au at (614) 583-5312. Exhibit guides featuring the names of student artists may be picked up in the gallery. “It’s a wonderful partnership that we enjoy with the schools,” she said. “It really is possible that we are creating and helping to nurture artists in our gallery.”

UA resident helped start Actors’ Theatre 30 years ago By GARY SEMAN JR. ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Patricia Ellson saw something that just wasn’t right — a park without Shakespeare. That was 30 years ago, when she and her late husband, Gary, were living in German Village. They were walking their dog past Schiller Park when Ellson visualized a stage, works from the Bard of Avon and, fortune willing, an audience. The couple mobilized and staged “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” with the help of some fellow thespians. The Actors’Theatre of Columbus was born that summer of 1981. “We were hoping to get 300 people a night in the audience,” Ellson said. “We thought that would be a good number. It very rapidly became 500 people a night and by the end, we played to 5,000 (total).” As part of its 30th anniversary celebration, the troupe again will stage “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” from June 30 through July 31. “We keep building,” artistic director John S. Kuhn said. “This is going to be a big year for us in a lot of ways.” The season will begin with a collaborative production between Actors’ Theatre and the Columbus School for Girls. “The Trojan Women,” by Greek playwright Euripides, will be presented March 3-6 at CSG, 56 S. Columbia Ave. The Winter Cool Classic Series will return in 2011 with a production of James Thurber’s “The Male Animal.” Performances are scheduled April 7-17 at the Columbus Performing Arts Center, 1111 E. Broad St. Actors’ Theatre will kick off its summer season with “The Scarlet Pimpernel” by Baroness Emmuska Orczy. This adaptation, written and directed by Kuhn, will be presented Thursday through Sunday at 8 p.m. from May 26 to June 26 in Schiller Park. The season will wrap up with “Oedipus Rex” by Greek writer Sophocles. Performances are scheduled Aug. 4 through Sept. 4. Actors’ Theatre has come a

Patricia Ellson holds a program from the Actors’ Theatre of Columbus’ first performance in the summer of 1981. Ellson, who is flanked by Actors’ Theatre executive director Frank Barnhart (left) and artistic director John S. Kuhn, helped found the local acting company with the performance of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” 30 years ago.

long way since its inception, Kuhn said. Attendance is now pushing 21,000 per year. He said the troupe is seen as a cost-effective alternative to other types of entertainment. Actors’ Theatre does not charge for its performances but seeks donations from audience members. “The community has embraced it for so long and still is so supportive,” Kuhn said. “Our numbers have been building in recent years.” Performances have changed, too. Actor’s Theatre is no longer limited to a summer season or one venue, as it stages multiple productions throughout the year at several venues in central Ohio. “The growth that I’ve seen, especially in the last two to three years, in audience size is really quite wonderful,” said Frank Barnhart, executive director of the theater company. “It seems more people are finding out about Actors’ Theatre and taking advantage of the variety of productions we’re doing. It’s not just Shakespeare anymore.” The troupe has pushed for a more creative dynamic over the years, staging classic works and more contemporary pieces, as well as musicals, Kuhn said. In 2009, for example, the organization put on “As You Like It” with life-size puppets sharing the stage with actors. “We’ve been gearing shows for

broader appeal,” Kuhn said. “I think we’re moving in the right direction. I think the quality of shows is improving.” Ellson recalls when Actors’ Theatre was a ragtag group of actors who would dress in her living room, walk through German Village in full regalia to the park and mingle with the crowd after the performance. The troupe achieved nonprofit status six months after it formed. Ellson left in the late 1990s when she had children, though she has done occasional work with the theater since then. “I’m thrilled that it’s still around,” said Ellson, who now lives in Upper Arlington. “I feel very proud that something that started as, ‘Hey kids, we got a park, let’s do something,’ is still going strong 30 years later. It’s tribute to the audience.” Bill Bragg got involved from the beginning when his wife, Vicky Welsh Bragg, landed a role in the original production. Bragg said he has always worked behind the scenes as a sound designer, production manager and managing director. These days, the professional musician is back to sound design. “From my point of view, it’s been intriguing to watch them,” he said. “You’re not often able to be part of the birth of an institution and watch it grow, so that’s been really fascinating for me.”

Continued from page A1 Continued from page A1 last spring that negatively affected local businesses. She encouraged city officials to reconsider accepting the bid of Decker Construction, which also did last spring’s work. “All of us that were there lived through last spring and it was a disaster,” Ballenger said. City engineer Tom Komlanc said last spring’s delays were caused by subcontractor Double Z Construction. City manager Virginia Barney said the city reached a $34,000 settlement with the contractor for the delays. She added that the proposed contract with Decker for this year’s work includes incentives and penalties to prompt the contractor to complete the work on time. “If the contractor runs over and they’re charged for the runover, we will share that money with the merchants,” Barney said. Ballenger said the settlement would do little to mitigate the impact that the construction project could have on businesses. “That $34,000 doesn’t come close to the lost revenue,” Ballenger said. Ciotola asked business own-

Got something to say?

ers to put their concerns in writing and forward them to council members before their Feb. 14 meeting, when council is scheduled to vote on whether to accept Decker’s bid and proceed with the Arlington Avenue project. Council is considering three bid options. The first, at $2.4million, exceeds the project budget and includes amenities such as lighting for trees to be planted along Arlington Avenue and the construction of an arch, benches and bike racks. Option 2, at $1.9-million, still exceeds the project budget but offers fewer amenities and includes electrical work to enable amenities to be added later. A third, bare-bones option would keep the project in budget at $1.7-million. Council members said they favor a combination of the second and third options – adding some amenities but keeping costs down. Ballenger asked council members to keep in mind that many of the amenities, while enhancing the look of the area, will not necessarily increase business at Mallway shops. “Aesthetics don’t matter if we’re out of business,” Ballenger said.

Council president Frank Ciotola and David DeCapua said they voted against the agreement because, while they support the city’s safety forces, they Frank Ciotola believe raises aren’t appropriate in the current economic climate. “I’m not asking that we should have had a wage reduction, we should have had a neutral or no increase,” Ciotola said. DeCapua said diminishing revenue at the state and local levels will make it difficult for the city to fulfill the agreement in the future. “The benefits and the pension plans promised to the firefighters are never going to be there,” he said. “Mathematically, it’s not possible.” Fire Chief Jeff Young said city officials and firefighters had to compromise on aspects of the agreement, given current economic conditions. “It’s very tough economic times. There’s pressure to keep the budget down. There’s pressure to compensate your employees,” Young said. “Both sides have worked hard to find common ground.”

Even though Upper Arlington doesn’t currently have an opening for a police officer, the city is seeking to build up a pool of qualified candidates in the event a position opens up. Those interested in becoming a UAPD officer have until 5 p.m. Friday, Feb. 18, to apply at the Municipal Services Center to take a civil service examination. There is a $20 fee. Applicants must be high school graduates and at least 19 years old (and 21 by the time they are appointed). The exam will be given on Feb. 26. “We’re not hiring anyone,” Chief Brian Quinn said. “If somebody retires, we have to hire them off of a list, and in order to have a list, we have to have a test. Our test has expired, so every two years normally we give a test so that we can hire.” Quinn said there could be some retirements by year’s end, and the 50-member police department needs a new pool of qualified candidates to interview in the event city council approves filling the positions. “You can’t just go out on the street and hire somebody that’s certified and say, hey you want a job?” Quinn said. “We have to give the test, and that’s what we’re doing.” If they pass the written civil service exam, a prospective candidate would also have to undergo a background investigation, lie detector test and interviews, as well as a physical and a drug exam before being hired. “All along the process, you weed people out,” Quinn said. “Whether its drug crimes or driving record or something like that, all that’s automatic disqualification. But they can still take the (civil service) test. You want the people with the cleanest background and you want the people that you think are going to fit in best with your community.” Quinn said that some potential candidates have unreasonable expectations of what’s involved in

The resume would simply be forwarded to the consultant or recruitment firm. City officials believe this is the first time Upper Arlington has used a search firm to assist in selecting a city manager since it adopted the council-manager form of government in 1956. “Typically they (council) usually have somebody in mind,” Drzewiecki said. “I guess they wanted somebody to come in and help them. Many people on the council may not have gone through this interviewing process. I don’t think there was like a one person that stood out to say, why don’t we interview (them)?” Emma Speight, deputy city manager, community affairs, said current city manager Virginia

being a police officer in Upper Arlington. “If you’re looking to fly helicopters and things like that, this is not the right place for you,” he said. “Upper Arlington’s a unique place. You have a lot of senior (citizens), so we want a well-rounded officer that’s going to be able to relate with different segments of the community. We want somebody with good communication skills.” Quinn said that a newly-hired police officer may still have to attend an academy to be certified. He’ll accept law enforcement certifications from some academies (like the ones in Columbus, London and the State Highway Patrol), but not likely for someone who got their certifications through a community college. Upon hiring, Quinn said, it can still take a newly-hired officer nine months to a year of training through the academy and being paired with veteran officers “before they’re counted as what we call manpower.” The salary range for a UA police officer starts at $47,652.33, with a maximum of $75,145.75 after three years.

Barney has been in that position since 2000. “Prior to that, Rich King served for 15-plus years,” Speight said. “I don’t know how many search firms were out there, back in the day.” Drzewiecki said council hopes to select a firm or consultant by mid-March, and to interview the candidates and choose a new manager by the end of the year, when Barney will retire. However, if a city manager is selected prior to year’s end, he or she will take over and Barney will assist as a consultant. Interested consultants or recruitment firms must submit five copies of the RFQs to the Human Resources Office, 3600 Tremont Road, Upper Arlington 43221, or by fax at 614-457-6620 or email at

City connections provide business opportunity for fledgling start-up By ANDREW MILLER


The rise of China as a global economic powerhouse has given rise to a new business in Upper Arlington. “All the experts say the future is China,” said Chris Stellato, an Upper Arlington resident and founder of the Columbus School of Chinese. “The emergence of China in business made this (youth Chinese course) popular because of UA residents’ Matt Shad forward thinking about their kids’ education,” said James Gant, city youth recreation supervisor. “This program is a great place to get a little exposure and see if they want to go further in their learning.” Stellato and business partner Zhiwei Bi believe the city’s business-savvy and education-minded residents will be the right match for his school’s offerings: Chinese language courses, private tutoring and cultural consulting. However, like many new businesses, the start-up didn’t have any capital to invest in leasing space. Matt Shad, deputy city manager for economic development, took notice of a flyer for the school last month while visiting Colin’s Coffee on Riverside Drive. Shad’s curiosity brought him together with the business owners to discuss their plans and their dilemma over finding affordable space. “I knew we had a great idea and a lot of people wanted to be a part of it. That’s what I knew we had,” Stellato said. “But what we didn’t have was money for a storefront. So we did some brainstorming and thought maybe we could get in with a school system. “That’s when we met Matt and he asked, ‘How can the city help?’” Shad said his role is to look for ways to help nurture business growth. After talking with Stellato and Bi, Shad introduced them to Gant to see if there might be room to partner with the Parks and Recreation Department’s Lifelong Learning & Leisure program. “One piece of my job is to make

connections, so I listen for what a business can bring to the city and what we have that can benefit them,” Shad said. “That’s how we create successful private-public partnerships.” In this case, it made sense to connect with Parks and Recreation because the department could offer space in return for the business’ offerings, he said. Gant said he was immediately impressed by the entrepreneurs’ passion and how well developed their lesson plans were. Shannon Chaney, Lifelong Learning & Leisure director, said this is the first time the program has engaged a brand-new venture and acted as a business incubator. The key, Gant said, is that a business getting its start through the LifeLong Learning & Leisure program must offer students a real experience and create enough interest to pay for itself. If enrollment is not sufficient, LifeLong

Learning will not offer the class. The city can’t afford to hand over a platform for businesses to pitch other services to students, he said. The proposal process for classes is available online. The Parks and Recreation Department reviews all submissions and interviews potential instructors to determine that the class type and lesson plan are a good fit for the city. Stellato is working on his doctorate in Chinese Language Pedagogy at Ohio State University, where he taught Chinese language courses and participated in an 18month Chinese immersion exchange. He also taught English in China. Bi continues to teach at OSU while working to further grow the business. The Parks and Recreation Department removed the risk that the business could not afford to take, Stellato said. “It’s the perfect partnership,” he said. “The city provides space and we provide expert teachers and classes. They’re clearly desired by how quickly they filled up. “I am grateful for this opportunity and how smoothly it has gone working with the city,” Stellato said. “We’re already looking to hire a few more teachers for this summer.”

Have You Heard? by Greg VanHorssen INSTRUMENTS FOR ACTIVE LIFESTYLES If you’re an active person with a hearing loss, there are hearing instruments with features that will keep you at the top of your game. For instance, “automatic adaptive directional microphones” have the ability to help you attend luncheons and hold meetings without missing a word. On the fairway or on the deck of a cruise ship, a feature known as a “wind-noise manager” helps reduce the effects of wind -induced noise and improve conversational hearing ability. Devices known as “data -logging” and “data-learning” actually record and analyze how you are utilizing certain features on your hearing instrument and customize volume adjustments. As a result, you benefit from precise custom programming without having to visit the hearing professional’s office for an adjustment. Keeping pace with the fast-growing technology of today’s hearing industry is an integral art of our business at ABSOLUTE HEARING SOLUTIONS. Our experienced staff will use specialized equipment to pinpoint and evaluate your hearing impairment. We then choose among a selection of hearing instruments to match the most appropriate aid with your individual needs. Our services don’t stop there however. At 1000 Morrison Road, Suite H, Gahanna, we know how crucial follow-up care and support are to the successful wearing of any hearing instrument And our advanced hearing aids are priced at affordable levels, way below our competitors’ prices. Call us at 614-654-4309 We handle Starkey, Phonak, Siemens, Unitron, MicroTech, GN ReSound, Rexton, Oticon, and Widex. Plus, we have the same products as NU-Ear, Audibel, AudioSync, and Miracle Ear, but you will save $1,000’s with us! We take a bite out of the cost of hearing aids!

Tree commission keeps an eye on city’s active forestry program By GARY BUDZAK ThisWeek Community Newspapers The city of Upper Arlington has nearly 15,000 trees along its streets, and countless more in its parks, private residences and businesses. “We have what we call a street tree inventory, and we use that every day to schedule maintenance, replacement and removal work,” said Steve Cothrel, superintendent of parks and forestry for Upper Arlington. “We remove around 400 trees and stumps per year. We plant between 400 and 500 trees a year, and we prune our street trees on a sixyear cycle, roughly 20-percent of our trees per year.” After a storm like the one at the start of February, city crews will pick up damaged limbs, branches and trees that have fallen on public property. To report an issue, call 614583-5340. The city won’t deal with tree damage on private property unless a neighbor complains about safety. The city will inspect the tree, and if need be, condemn the tree. If the owner doesn’t remove the tree, the city will — at the owner’s expense. In addition to weather, Cothrel said other things that damage trees include salt, pollutants, poor soil, utility and infrastructure repairs and the emerald ash borer. “We’re an older community, and so we do have many neighborhoods with mature trees,” Cothrel said. “Our newer neighbor-

hoods are anywhere from 10-30 years old, so those trees are younger to middle-aged. But like any community, our street trees don’t last forever, so we do have a very active program of replacement, and we have a program to maintain the existing trees, to try to get as many years out of them as we can.” Cothrel said the most common tree in Upper Arlington is the maple, but some neighborhoods contain crab apple, sweet gum, honey locust, pear and oaks. Those interested in tree issues can attend a City Tree Commission meeting. February’s meeting was canceled because of the weather, but the next one is 7:30 a.m. March 1 at the Municipal Services Center. “The commission is composed of seven residents of the city who serve (three-year terms) without compensation, and they’ve been in existence for 20-some years now,” Cothrel said. “They help guide the city’s urban forestry policies and programs.” “We allow public participation if people want to come,” said Debra Marsh of the tree commission. “Normally people don’t come

unless there’s an appeal. We go over city contracts related to trees and any projects that the tree commission has going.” Among those projects are sixth-grade tree plantings and Tree Treks. “We have created walking tours of four of the city’s parks — Fancyburg, Miller, Northam, Thompson,” Marsh said. “They follow the established pathways around the park, and highlight various trees that are along the path.” The trees are numbered by posts sunk into the ground, and a booklet describes each numbered tree. For example, the first numbered tree in Thompson Park is a bald cypress. “People who have used these parks for everyday walking their dog and suddenly they walk around with a Tree Trek brochure, and it’s like a new experience,” Marsh said. “It’s been very gratifying to see the interest that it has created, and every year one of our commission members will actually lead a walk around the park.” Marsh said she’s been on the tree commission 8 or 10 years, and calls it a rewarding experience. “It’s quite interesting because we’ve interacted with the engineering department, cultural arts, parks and recreation, and the city manager’s office. So it’s a collaborative effort, and I think it’s a positive thing for people in the community.”

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 history 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 (74-2, 16), Upper Arlington (7-41-1, 16), Olentangy Orange (6-43, 15), Olentangy (7-6, 14), Thomas Worthington (5-7-1, 11), Gahanna (4-9, 8), DeSales (3-90-1, 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.”

Bears expect to handle zone better in future By PAUL BATTERSON ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Upper Arlington High School girls basketball team was caught off guard a bit by Central Crossing’s 1-3-1 zone on Feb. 4. After the Golden Bears’43-32 win over the Comets, junior forward Olivia Menden said she and her teammates expect to see that defensive scheme in the Division I district tournament. And next time, she said, UA will be ready for it. “The zone got to us a little. We know a lot of teams are going to throw that at us now,” said Menden, who scored 14 points against Central Crossing. “Our passes were not that great and I think we played less aggressive tonight. We have that fire in our belly now.” Coach Chris Savage said the game against Central Crossing showed the Bears how important it is to stay focused and take care of the ball.

Wellington Roundup

Swim team begins pursuit of state meet By PAUL BATTERSON

At a glance

ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Wellington School swimming and diving teams will be one of just seven boys squads and five girls teams competing in the Division II sectional meet on Saturday, Feb. 12, at Upper Arlington, and coach Bill Miller believes that could work to the Jaguars’ advantage. The boys team will compete against Canal Winchester, Centennial, Grandview, Hilliard Bradley, Olentangy and Watterson, and the girls team will compete against Bradley, Centennial, Grandview and Ready. “The UA sectional meet is a good spot for us,” Miller said. “Part of the romance of the UA sectional site is you don’t know how you finished in your race (because you’re mixed in with Division I competitors) and you have to wait to see if you made it the district meet (Feb. 18 at Ohio State).” The UA sectional may be the toughest Division I site in central Ohio, as the girls field includes defending state champion UA and 2010 state runner-up Watterson and the boys field features UA and St. Charles, which finished third and fourth, respectively, at state last season. In addition, seven of the district’s 11 returning Division I state champions will be competing in the UA sectional. Because of the small number of Division II teams competing at the site, there are no automatic district qualifiers. Twenty-seven at-large district berths for each swimming event will be award based on the times from the three Central District sectional sites, the East sectional and the Southeast sectional. Divers do not compete at sectional. Last season, for the first time in program history, Wellington advanced two swimmers, 2010 graduate Peter Campbell and sophomore Annie Miller, to the state meet. Coach Miller believes his team can duplicate that feat this year. “Even with all the crazy snow days,

we’ve gotten into a routine and I believe we’re right on track,” he said. “The boys team is right on target and the girls needs to get in the water, but they will be fine by the sectional meet.” Part of coach Miller’s optimism stems from the Jaguars’ performance at the Centennial Stars Invitational on Jan. 29. Finishing first for the girls team were the 400-yard freestyle relay of Miller, Abby Chester, Abby Postle and Jenna Tugaoen (4 minutes, 2.44 seconds), Miller in the 200 individual medley (2:24.97) and 100 breaststroke (1:14.54), Tugaoen in the 100 free (57.63) and 100 backstroke (1:03.8), and Brittany Johnson in diving (250.3 points). The girls team scored 322 points to win the six-team meet. Centennial (317) was second, followed by Whetstone (255), Marion Harding (171), Northland (106) and Mount Gilead (98). The boys team, which did not win any events, finished third (216.5), behind Centennial (321) and Northland

(222), and ahead of Whetstone (190), Marion Harding (176.5) and Mount Gilead (155). Coach Miller said his swimmers are in the midst of tapering their workouts in preparation for the postseason. “This is a time when you see the kids bonding more with each other,” he said. “During the regular season, most of the time we have our heads in the water or they’re trying to concentrate on whatever the drill is. During the taper, kids have a lot less yardage and a lot fewer intervals. That leaves a little more time for socializing.” •The girls basketball team headed into the Division IV district tournament draw on Feb. 6 on a two-game winning streak. The Jaguars beat Village Academy 24-20 on Feb. 3 and had their highest offensive output of the season in a 5038 win over Marion Catholic on Feb. 5. Village Academy’s point total marked the lowest Wellington has allowed this

HOCKEY Continued from page B1 The Celtics were seeded fourth in the Blue Jackets Cup a year ago, but beat fifth-seeded St. Charles 3-0, upset top-seeded Liberty 3-0 and rallied to beat third-seeded Moeller 4-3 in the final. 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.

season. “We’re definitely seeing improvement,” coach Tysha Crump said. “We’re starting to see the girls playing with more confidence now and that is carrying over to the chemistry on the court.” The Jaguars are seeded 13th for the district tournament and play 12th-seeded Horizon Science Academy in the first round at 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 14, at Westerville North. Horizon Science improved to 8-7 overall with a 56-23 win over Northside Christian on Feb. 5, as Kadi Conteh had 25 points and five assists.

“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). Liberty also has a pair of experienced, offensive-minded defensemen in Anthony Bergamesca (six goals, 16 assists) and Alec Vidrick (10 goals, 14 assists). But Hoogeveen said his squad likely will need a standout performance from one or both of his goaltenders — Eddie Arcy and Bryan Finneran — to win the tournament. “When you look at how close

our games against Coffman and Jerome were, you can see that this tournament is wide open and the difference between a win and a loss can be one big play made 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 scoring 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 every game in goal. “Our goalie has been outstanding in the big games throughout the second half of the season, and we’ll need him to come up big for us once again in the Blue Jackets Cup,” Pooley said.

12 at 160) and Jamie Lowery (1512 at 189). The top four placers in each weight class qualify for the district tournament Feb. 25-26 at Hilliard Darby. Last season, UA scored 113.5 points to tie Dublin Scioto for sixth place in the 13-team Division I sectional at Watkins Memorial behind champion Marysville (243) and had five district qualifiers, including O’Neill (fourth at 135) and Kilstrom (fourth at 160). “We’re hoping that our three seniors (Kilstrom, Mascari and O’Neill) will advance to district,” Gerhard said. “I think me and Vito both have a good shot at making it as well, and we have one or two other guys who could do it, too.” Andrew Steedman (13-15 at 112), DeVillebichot (2-3 at 119), Neely (3-5 at 140), Reid (6-12 at 145), Bivens (5-12 at 152) and Watson (2-5 at 171) also will compete in the sectional. “It’s a tough sectional, but we match up fairly well in a lot of weight classes there,” McCormick said. “If we get a couple of good draws and win a couple of close matches, we could get seven guys through. If we don’t wrestle very well, we could end up with only three district qualifiers. But I like the way we’re competing and improving right now, so I expect to see our guys wrestle well there.”

“I think we’ve done pretty well considering that our best wrestler, Pitman, is out for the season, and we’re missing so many other good wrestlers,” senior Patrick O’Neill said. Coach Grant McCormick said freshmen Taylor Neely (140) and Blake Reid (145) and sophomores Peter DeVillebichot (119), Riley Bivens (152) and Danny Watson (171) have stepped into some of the open weight classes and wrestled well enough to help keep their squad competitive. At the All-North Tournament, Reid went 3-2 to place fifth at 145 and DeVillebichot went 2-3 to place sixth at 119. “The silver lining to all of these injuries is that a lot of our kids have gained experience they wouldn’t have gotten otherwise this year, and they’ve done well,” McCormick said. “Blake Reid got a huge pin in the second-tolast match in our dual against Thomas that sealed the victory for us. Reid and Neely are much better than they were at the beginning of the season, and if they keep improving at this rate, they will be the next Kevin Drake and Kyle Frost (UA graduates who were state qualifiers in 2008).” Six UA starters have winning records heading into the Division I sectional tournament on Feb. 19 at Marysville in Kenji Gerhard (22-3 at 103), Joe Mascari (19-12 at 125), Vito DiBenedetto (23-12 at 130), O’Neill (26-8 at 135), Michael Kilstrom (17-

Bears’ Inbusch signs to play for Vanderbilt By SCOTT GERFEN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

After signing a national letter of intent on Feb. 2 to play soccer at Vanderbilt University, Upper Arlington High School senior Gena Inbusch credited her teammates on the girls team for helping her get the scholarship offer. “I remember playing with Natalie Horner my freshman year and I was pushed to get better because so many people around me were better,” Inbusch said. “I give so much credit to UA soccer.”

Horner completed her junior season at the University of Kentucky last fall after transferring from Michigan. Inbusch, a forward, is one of nine recruits who signed with Vanderbilt, which is a member of the Southeastern Conference. During her four-year prep career, Inbusch became a key component of the Bears’offensive attack. She had 14 goals last season, which was second on the team behind Michela Paradiso (20). Paradiso, a junior who has verbally committed to Ohio State, was captain of the ThisWeek Super 12 team for the third consecutive season.

UA, which reached a Division I state semifinal in 2008 and won two district titles during Inbusch’s career, finished 15-3-2 overall last season, losing 1-0 in overtime to Dublin Coffman in a regional semifinal. The Bears went 5-1-1 in the OCCCentral Division last season, finishing third behind Hilliard Davidson (6-0-1) and Coffman (5-0-2). Inbusch’s scoring ability was one reason why the Bears won a district title and contended for league championship last fall. She was named honorable mention all-league.

“She’s a versatile player and really has tremendous skill,” Bears coach Mark Wise said. “She was very dangerous on the field and people always had to keep an eye on her. When she and Michela would work off each other, it was a tough tandem for opponents.” Vanderbilt finished 8-10-2 last season after losing 5-3 to top-seeded Florida in an SEC quarterfinal. Coach Ronnie Woodard just completed her eighth season with the Commodores. “They’re a growing program and that was a big reason why I decided to go

there,” said Inbusch, who plans to study psychology. “The coaches talked a lot about the speed and pace of my game. I haven’t been the best technical player, but over the past couple of years, that part of my game has improved.” Wise liked to put Inbusch on the outside because of her “powerful cross.” “She’s been working for years on getting to where she is now,” Wise said. “She’s always been a focused person and we’re going to miss her because she definitely was an impact player for our team.”

UA concludes league play Friday, Feb. 11, at home against Davidson. “We have a lot of motivation to stay focused,” Savage said. “The last couple of weeks of the season have been a tournamentlike atmosphere.

son. The winner plays Watkins Memorial in the second round at 6 p.m. Feb. 24 at Hamilton Township. The Greyhounds and the Warriors had a combined 5-30 record at the time of the tournament draw on Feb. 6. If UA advances to a district semifinal, it likely would face fifth-seeded Pickerington North on March 1 at Olentangy Liberty. Last season, the Bears lost to Reynoldsburg 43-42 in a district semifinal. The Raiders went on

to reach a state semifinal, where they lost to eventual state champion Canton McKinley 42-39. The key to making a deeper postseason run this year, Savage said, is for the Bears to make opponents play at their pace. “We need to slow the pace down a little bit and speed it up when we need to,” he said. “We need to force the tempo and not let other teams dictate the tempo for us.”

The Beat Arts, eats and fun in central Ohio


Baker mad about new shop in Olde Towne East

1 You want catchy tunemak-

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 900square-foot 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. “I’ve worked for a couple of places and I always wanted to do my own thing,” she said. “I guess I planned to do it a little bit later in life but it all kind of happened.” 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.

You start playing some of your songs for kids, maybe even tailor the lyrics to your audience a bit, 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. But the best part is the catchy folk-pop melodies adults love, too.

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 Whitey Morgan out sounds pounded out from the band’s Fender Telecasters and it’s honky-tonk heaven, friends. Touring in support of their latest, a self-titled effort, Whitey Morgan and the 78’s will stop at the Woodland Tavern for a Thursday, Feb. 17, gig. Lydia Loveless and The Tin Hearts open. Call (614) 299-4987.

5 The plot of Mozart’s clas-

sic opera The Marriage of Figaro relies heavily on secrecy — 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. Opera Columbus will present the classic opera Feb. 11 and 13, at the Ohio Theatre. Tickets are $100-$7.50. Call (614) 461-8101.

“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 (pronounced loo-chay) 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. 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.”

Exemption offers property tax relief


In 2007, state leaders expanded the homestead exemption to make property tax relief available to more than a half million additional senior citizens and permanently and totally disabled Ohioans. The homestead exemption dates back to 1971, and offers those who qualify the chance to shield part of their “homestead” — a dwelling and up to one acre — from property taxation. Until the expansion Katie Widmeyer and Dave Meyers in 2007, most senior citizens and disabled Ohioans were excluded because of income tests.

nity to shield up to $25,000 of the market value of their homestead from property taxation. That means a home valued at $100,000 will generally be taxed as if it was valued at $75,000. On average, those who qualify are saving $400 per year. Seniors aged 65 and older and disabled Ohioans must apply with their local county auditor in order to take advantage of the homestead exemption. Applications may be submitted after the first Monday in January and on or before the first Monday in June. To get an application, visit eal_property/DTE_105A.pdf.
