Council sees tax hike as inevitable By JEFF DONAHUE ThisWeek Community Newspapers It isn’t a matter of if or when Bexley voters will see a tax increase on the ballot, but how much. Facing the potential loss of estate tax and local government fund revenues on top of an anticipated $1.2-million budget deficit, Bexley City Council members agree that they have no choice but to seek a tax increase in November. The only issue remaining to be resolved is how much additional funding they will ask voters to approve. Finance and judiciary committee chairman Ben Kessler told city council Feb. 8 that the pending state budget crisis will likely take its toll on municipalities across

A closer look Over the past 10 years, estate tax revenues have accounted for approximately 17 percent of Bexley’s annual operating revenues. That number has varied from a high of $4.3-million (33.6 percent of operating revenues) in 2009 to a low of $482,046 (5.4 percent) in 2007.

Ohio. With Gov. John Kasich’s biennial budget yet to be released, widespread cuts are anticipated in an effort to deal with a projected $8-billion budget deficit. Assistant House majority whip Cheryl Grossman (R-Grove City) and state Rep.

Jay Hottinger (R-Newark) jointly introduced legislation Jan. 12 to eliminate the Ohio estate tax, also known as the “death tax.” House Bill 3 would allow small business owners, farmers and homeowners to pass on their assets to their heirs without being taxed twice on their life’s savings. Ohio currently has the lowest estate tax exemption in the U.S. Just $338,333 of a taxable estate is exempt from the estate tax, compared to an average exemption amount of approximately $1.7million for other states with an estate tax. Over the past 10 years, estate tax revenues have accounted for approximately 17 percent of Bexley’s annual operating revenues. That number has varied

from a high of $4.3-million (33.6 percent of operating revenues) in 2009 to a low of $482,046 (5.4 percent) in 2007. According to statistics provided by finance director Beecher Hale, local government funds from the state have accounted for an average of nearly $1-million per year (or 9 percent of operating revenues) over the past 10 years. “This is a particularly challenging time,” Kessler told his fellow council members. “The hope is that, at the very least, we know where we stand by July 1. We’re going to continue to advocate in the financial interest of the city but we’re not going to have any pat answers in the next couple of months. We’re not going to know where any of this really lies until July 1.”

Kessler said regardless of how the state budget crisis is resolved, the city has issues of its own that must be addressed. “Even before House Bill 3 hit, in context of our 2011 budget discussion, we were all sitting here looking at trending and looking at forecasts and saying something has to give here,” he said. “We’re going to have to make some substantial cuts or we are going to have to look at some new revenue options.” Kessler said his original plan was to spend the first quarter to six months of 2011 reviewing the city’s options. “That was back when we had a somewhat more static image of what our budg-

A familiar name in Bexley political circles is back in the news. The name is Madison, and no, it isn’t longtime Bexley Mayor David Madison. Timothy G. Madison, a 46-year-old attorney and son of the former Bexley mayor, has announced he will seek a seat on Bexley City Council in November. Four of the seven seats on Bexley City Council are up for election in November. Incumbents Ben Kessler, Mark Masser, Jeff McClelland and Jed Morison are yet to announce if they intend to seek re-election. “My desire to run for Bexley City Council is born from my passion for the city,” Madison told ThisWeek Bexley. “Bexley is my home. I believe in the city of Bexley. I have deep roots here, was raised here, and my wife and I are raising our five kids here.” Madison describes himself as an independent and said he has spent 34 years of his life in the Bexley community. He and his wife of 17 years, Jenny, a nurse at Mt. Carmel Hospital, have five children, Jonah (11), Grace (9), Canaan (9), Natalie (9), and Tess (6). All are students at Cassingham El-

ementary School. “Bexley is facing some extremely difficult financial challenges and I am committed to researching and exploring all options in order to reach a balanced budget and serve in the best interest of all Bexley citizens,” Madison said. “My recent involvement with the 4th of July event and the Bike Helmet Law has only strengthened my belief in Bexley and has convinced me to further my involvement in public service. It would be an honor to represent the caring and involved citizens of our community who make our city thrive in order to create an equally thriving future.” Madison has practiced as a real estate/business attorney since 1994. He is a founding partner of Madison & Rosan, LLP, a real estate, business, and commercial litigation law firm. After graduating from Bexley High School in 1982, Madison earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Cincinnati in 1987. He earned his Juris Doctorate from the Capital University Law School in 1994. Madison said he doesn’t think an income tax increase is the answer to the city’s fiSee MADISON, page A2

Diane Peterson resigns from Bexley school board By JEFF DONAHUE ThisWeek Community Newspapers Diane Peterson, a member of the Bexley City Schools Board of Education since 2002, is resigning, effective Feb. 28.

However, I will do all I can to balance the budget without the need to secure additional funds from taxpayers. I am fundamentally against an increase in income tax and will work diligently to avoid an increase. I am discussing this issue with many informed people in the community right now and hope to have some concrete plans in the coming months.” Madison said he has five primary goals for the city. They include: 1. Making Bexley government more transparent, visible, and accessible to the citizens 2. Making Bexley City Council more fiscally responsible 3. Improving relationships with the Bexley Schools and Capital University 4. Maintaining and improving the Bexley Police and Recreation Departments 5. Bringing more jobs into Bexley. Madison said he has a vision for Bexley City Council. “My vision is for council to be more than a body that simply votes on issues put before it,” he said. “I want council to lead the city by having a vision and plan for the future of Bexley. When I am on council, we will commence long-term strategic planning to ensure the successful future of our city. Council must be comprised of

proactive and dynamic leaders, working together with the citizens to initiate new and forward-thinking concepts.” Madison said he thinks he possesses the skills to strengthen city council. “My 16 years as a practicing real estate/business attorney and business owner is a skill that will be invaluable as a member of city council,” he said. “I have worked with real estate developers, business owners, and lenders in all aspects of commercial real estate development, including financing, zoning/land use, and construction. I have learned to compromise, something that I think all elected officials need to understand is essential to getting things done in the best interest of the citizens. I will advocate for the citizens in all Council decisions. While not all citizens will likely agree with every one of my decisions, I guarantee they will know where I stand on each issue.” Madison said he also has a unique historic perspective on the city. “I also bring to city council an understanding of the history of Bexley. In my 34 years of living in Bexley and having our children in the school system, I have the benefit of knowing a large number of citizens and I am able to reach out to them for an understanding of what they want Bexley to be. My campaign will not be based on what I want for Bexley, but what the citizens want for Bexley.” Madison said residents can learn more about him and his campaign by visiting his website at

As it were

By JEFF DONAHUE ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Columbus’ rivers did not provide a useful waterway With the opening of the Scioto Mile, the Scioto River will once again be an attraction that will draw people both to downtown and the city as a whole. After all, people were drawn to the forks of the Scioto and Olentangy Rivers a couple of centuries ago because the water was clear and clean. And it was widely believed that a place where two rivers came together would soon be a center of profitable river trade. The water was clear and clean and had been drawing people to its banks for several thousand years. Native Americans lived here for centuries and built large Indian mounds nearby. Mound Street is named for one of them. Thousands of deer came down to the river to drink in molting season and covered the water in a blanket of shedding deer fur. With a wry directness, Native American gave the stream a new name — “Hairy River.” But the profitable river trade the pioneers expected to undertake with huge cargo laden flatboats was not to be. The river was too narrow in many places and the current too treacherous. The pioneer settlements of central Ohio were rather isolated for a number of years. Until the canal came. Canals are not a new idea. One can find them at any number of places in the ancient world where people needed an artificial waterway. But canals are expensive to build and costly to maintain. For that reason they are often built by governments. As the land across the Appalachian Mountains began to be settled after the American Revolution, men like Henry Clay began to argue that government should finance “internal improvements” like roads, canals and river work to “open the West” to com-

merce. And all of this should be financed by the federal government. Many people in the East were not ED thrilled with the idea that LENTZ their taxes should subsidize public works that would help the Ohio River valley compete with their own commerce. So canals were more a dream than a reality for a number of years. Then the extraordinary success of the Erie Canal linking the East to the Great Lakes captured the imagination of the country in the years after the War of 1812. Soon many Ohioans were talking about canals and building one in the state. But talk was really the only result. Like many other times in the state’s history, forceful leadership was needed to bring canals to Ohio. In this case, that leadership was provided by Ethan Allen Brown. As early as 1816, Brown, a Justice of the Ohio Supreme Court, had written to Governor DeWitt Clinton of New York seeking information about the canal system of that state. When Brown was elected governor in 1818, he proposed building a canal and continued to press for its construction. In the end the Ohio General Assembly agreed and studies were made as to possible locations. Two major canal systems — the Miami and Erie in the west and the Ohio and Erie in the east — were built with the support and supervision of a number of people as committed to the project as Gov. Brown had been. Important among them was Alfred Kelley. Kelley had come to Columbus in 1816 to represent Cleveland in the assembly. He served for the next several decades, eventually

representing Columbus as well. As a member of the Canal Commission he personally supervised the construction of much of the canal. When the economic depression of the 1830s threatened Ohio’s ability to pay interest due on its canal bonds, Kelley would pledge his own home as collateral to ensure payment on the bonds. Through the efforts of Kelley and many others, Columbus was linked to the main line of the Ohio and Erie Canal by a Feeder Canal that entered the city near the place where Bicentennial Park is today. The canal and the recently arrived National Road transformed Columbus. As late as 1832, Columbus was a frontier village of a few thousand people. By 1834, Columbus was a city of 5,000. The canal and its people captured the imagination of the city. Longtime resident Emily Stewart later remembered, “The first canal boats seemed like fairy palaces. They were painted white and the windows had green shutters and scarlet curtains. The inside panels of the cabins contained pictures and mirrors. The officers of the passenger boats were gentlemen. The cabin was a dining and sitting room in the daytime, but was converted into a sleeping apartment at night. There were staterooms at each end for the ladies, whose comfort was further promoted by the attentions of a polite and diligent stewardess. For years after the canal was opened, the boats always came in with a band of music playing on board. The captain of the boat usually played the clarinet for the entertainment of the passengers…” But all of this growth and success came with a price. The riverfront between the Main Street Canal Basin and the Broad Street Bridge came to be filled with docks for canal boats and canal warehouses soon lined the waterfront. The river, once clear and pristine, soon became little more than an open sewer. The golden age of the Ohio and Erie Canal lasted for less than 30 years. By 1850, the first railroad had arrived in Columbus and the canal began a long, slow decline.

When Matt Lampke returns from military deployment in the Middle East, his seat on Bexley City Council will be waiting for him. In December, council President Jeff McClelland said he was considering the possibility of naming a temporary replacement for Lampke during his deployment. On Feb. 8, McClelland announced that after investigating the issue

he had decided to leave Lampke’s city council seat open until he returns. “We have discussed in Matt executive sesLampke sion and I have also had some individual conversations with various council people about a replacement for Mr. Lampke,” McClelland said. “It is my current intention to defer, or

not to take any action to appoint a replacement for that position.” Lampke could be absent from city council meetings for as long as a year. The three-term councilman announced in November that he was being deployed to Iraq. Lampke is a captain in the U.S. Army Reserve. He received only a seven-day notice that his unit was being deployed. At the time of Lampke’s deployment, councilman Mark Masser learned that he might have to

undergo surgery. With two members missing, council members expressed concerns about having a quorum for meetings. Masser later chose not to have the surgical procedure, so the quorum issue never materialized. This is the second time in Lampke’s career that he has had to temporarily vacate his city council seat for military duty. In 2003, he was mobilized for a 5-month period.

New BMS assistant principal looks back on first semester

I have just completed my first semester as assistant principal at Bexley Middle School and I feel very fortunate to work with such a talented and passionate staff. Just as I am excited about the staff I work with, I cannot say enough good things about our students. Each day, they come to school ready to learn and willing to meet the challenges set before them. Whether it is through our STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) projects, community service days, fine arts or core curriculum, our students consistently amaze me with their knowledge and skills. Bexley Middle School is proud to be an International Baccalaureate (IB) school. We were the first Middle Years Program in the state of Ohio and continue to be considered a model school for others looking to add this program. IB gives our school a framework for everything that we do. From scheduling, to course offerings, to instruction time, to community service; it helps us to stay true to our mission statement: Dedicated to educating the middle level child for academic excellence, developing informed, responsible, Ed Lentz writes a history column respectful, and productive global for ThisWeek.

citizens. We are currently in the process of preparing for a site visit from IB as part of our program evalJASON uation.The CAUDILL staff has been collaborating diligently to establish our strengths and developing proposals for improving our school. The site visit will help to validate the practices we have implemented over the past four years and provide us with an opportunity to share our growth. Moving forward as a community, we have some very real educational challenges ahead. It is more important than ever that every child leave high school with the option of pursuing whatever career they choose. The societal cost of not having a competitive work force is great and we as a community have a moral obligation to each and every

child: we must prepare our students for what lies ahead. They will not be expected to simply be vessels of knowledge, but rather they will be expected to be critical consumers who know how to find, interpret, and communicate information in a way that others can understand. We as a staff recognize that what we do during a student’s middle school career has a very real impact on the rest of their lives and we look to make the most of every opportunity. While the challenges of preparing all students for the unknown may seem daunting at times (and impossible at others) there is no place I would rather be. This community has time and again shown its support for education and I know that together we will continue to meet challenges head on and give students the education they deserve. Jason Caudill has been Bexley Middle School’s assistant principal since August 2010.

A health-and-wellness summit held by Bexley City Schools has generated ideas to improve student health across the district. The summit, held last month, featured breakout sessions on a variety of topics, including school lunches, locally grown food and exercise. A session on school lunches featured representatives from Ohio Action for Healthy Kids, an organization whose goal is to promote healthier children, exercise and eating in schools, Bexley City Schools board member Marlee Snowdon said. “That can be a hot topic that can bring some negative responses,” Snowdon said. “It was really a very positive group. They kept coming up with ideas on how we can change things to make things healthier.” One of the group’s recommendations was having an economist take a survey to determine what kids will eat, what can be served for lunch. There is an economic reality to the school lunch program, Snowdon said. “You can’t just put Brussels sprouts out every day and think you can make any money,” she said. Pediatrician Mary Lynn Niland said the group generated some good ideas and it was good for educators, parents and the community to sit down together and discuss helping children become healthier. “I sat in the school lunch subgroup,” she said. “The first step is looking at school lunch as a business. There are economics involved.” Her group was interested in trying some small changes in the lunch menu to see if

students would embrace them. The school district has been making small changes to its menu for awhile now. “We want to continue to be able to look at introducing healthier foods into the menu on the lunch line that kids will continue to buy and eat,” Niland said. The group also came out of the breakout session wanting to offer more education for families and children. She said if you teach the parents how to make healthy choices, they teach the children how to make healthy choices. A third idea was to start doing tastings in the cafeteria once a month or every other month. School officials could put out a healthier food for students to try and students would vote on whether they would like to see it featured on the lunch menu, Niland said. She took an interest in pediatric obesity about two years ago when it started to gain a lot of media attention. Now she’s interested in what kids eat and getting children more active. “It all sort of ties together,” she said. “Our kids are not eating healthy. Everything is processed.” Michael Jones of Local Matters led a breakout session on “locally grown goodness/farming/gardening.” Bexley residents Diane Grosser and Barb Newbig who lead Bexley’s community garden also participated. “We had some elementary school teachers interested in gardening for the school,” Snowdon said. “Laura Robertson Boyd, a local chef, came up with some neat ideas for short- and long-term goals and getting kids more into the earth.” Some ideas generated by the group include

Weekly newspaper.

creating gardens at each of the schools; having students make rain barrels in class; composting; and using produce grown in gardens in the cafeteria. Another group looked at classroom celebrations. Some suggestions were posting a chart of healthy drinks and snacks, an extra recess rather than food for a celebration and creating healthy celebrations by donating a book for the room. “They had all sorts of ideas for different classroom celebrations and different awards,” Snowdon said. The group looking at exercise suggested introducing a proposal to the board of education to incorporate 60 minutes of daily exercise, a running club for elementary school children at recess and family activity nights sponsored by the parent teacher organization. Another idea that came from the summit was a program called “Eat like a Caveman.” The week-long program encourages students to eat minimally processed healthy food, things that a caveman would eat, give up television for a day (a caveman wouldn’t have one) and walk to work or school (a caveman wouldn’t have a car). “It is a community program we are encouraging the schools to embrace,” Snowdon said. Health and wellness is such a large concept it is difficult to get your arms wrapped around the entire concept, Snowdon said. She said the summit was a starting point that produced action plans which will take time, energy and volunteers to implement.

‘Hairspray’ By Lorrie Cecil/ThisWeek

Lynn Hay, a Bexley resident, practices juggling with the Jest Jugglers on Jan. 27 at the Schiller Park Recreation Center in German Village. To view a video from the Jan. 27 meeting of the group, log on to

The Bishop Hartley High School drama department will present “Hairspray” at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 24-26 in the Dick Geyer Gymnasium at the school, 1285 Zettler Road. Pictured are cast members Aaron Wells, of Columbus; Emma Miller, of Baltimore; Mark D’Andrea, of Westerville; Brooke Nerderman, of Gahanna; Mariah Hasson, of Columbus; Evan Chandler, of New Albany; and Liz Miller, of German Village. Tickets are $10 at the door.

Jest Jugglers members say Education hobby is worth the effort BHS teacher By GARY SEMAN JR. ThisWeek Community Newspapers They stand across from each other, pitching clubs back and forth at an almost hypnotic speed. Others toss bird seed-filled balls in the air, trying to keep them suspended before gravity and fatigue take their toll. Yet another one hops on a unicycle, attempting to incorporate basketballs into his routine — without falling. This is just another day in the lives of the Jest Jugglers, a group that meets each Thursday night at the Schiller Park Recreation Center in German Village. Founded in the early 1980s, the outfit is the longest-running juggling group in central Ohio, according to Owen Smith, co-director of the organization. It accepts jugglers of all coordination levels and there is no cost to join. “We do have people from all walks of life,” said Smith, a mechanical engineer who lives in Powell. His son, Evan, an exercise enthusiast, said juggling is a good workout. “You can really work up a sweat,” he said. So what does it take to become a good juggler? “Dedication,” the elder Smith said. Not to mention a few tools of the trade, such as clubs, balls and rings. It can be a fairly inexpensive prospect for beginners, but some of the more expensive equipment, such as the bowling pinshaped clubs, can run $45 each. Most practitioners consider juggling seven ob-

jects the pinnacle of the craft. Wes Bourne, a Johnstown resident who joined Jest Jugglers five years ago, said it took him the past 18 months to work up to five. “To me, juggling is a sport,” he said. “The more balls and patterns, the better.” Some juggling routines conjure up images of impending disaster — torches, knives, bowling balls and chainsaws whirling about, just centimeters away from the body. Owen Smith said performers still use those instruments, but they’re not part of the local group’s regular meetings at the recreation center. “I haven’t done dangerous stuff in a while,” said Smith, who has spun a number of sharp objects in the air. “Actually, juggling on the unicycle wasn’t the safest thing, either.” Indeed, dangers do exist. Matt Jergens, a professional juggler, took a club to the face at the Jan. 27 gathering. “It hardly ever happens but when it happens, it happens to me,” the Westerville resident joked. Jergens began juggling as a senior in high school almost 20 years ago. Now, he makes a living doing it. “I practiced every day. It took a while,” he said, adding that he does about 300 shows a year. Lynn Hay, of Bexley, enjoys the countless challenges juggling presents but prefers to take things slow. “I’m happy where I am,” she said. “I don’t want to be a superstar.”

10 Jorge Gomez and his mu- traditional Cuban forms with Latin

sical compañeros were going to make timba music, despite what people told them about the challenges of finding audiences for the hybrid form among U.S. audiences. In 2000, Gomez found himself in Miami, reuniting with many friends from their days playing the clubs around Havana, Cuba. They had each had classical training alongside their cultural accumulation of Latin and Afro-Cuban musical styles like son, salsa and even santeria. And from Cuba, each had traveled with their families via a different geographical path to Miami — pianist/keyboardist Gomez first to Guatemala, others to far-flung places like Argentina, Italy and Spain. The friends were making music separately, in supporting bands for a number of top acts, but decided “we had to play this music we left behind,” Gomez told The Beat. “The first thing that came into my mind was that (timba) was the only thing we could do,” he added. “That or nothing.” Timba is a modern hybrid of

jazz, featuring instrumentation not typically found in Cuban music, resulting in something “a little deeper sounding and more energetic,” Gomez explained. The friends named their new band Tiempo Libre, or “free time,” as it started out as a side project for each. Despite what they were told about their music’s potential appeal to American audiences, Tiempo Libre didn’t stay a side project for long. “In 2004 we released our first album and got our first Grammy (Award) nomination. In 2006 we released our second album and got our second Grammy nomination,” Gomez related, with a chuckle that indicated he was being less than self-aggrandizing. Of course, those who told him it wouldn’t work had to be saying “OK, OK. We get the point.” Tiempo Libre has since earned a third Grammy nomination, and timba has taken Gomez and mates around the world. “U.S., Europe, Israel, Australia. We’re always getting a lot of support,” Gomez said. “It’s like ‘Wow, we know we’re doing the right thing.’”

Lots of vino and voluptuous food at Tucci’s in Dublin The first thing you notice when you tread into the terrific Tucci’s is a chalkboard with 16 special wines listed on it. These are all available in two-, four- and sixounce pours that will never be overoxidized because Tucci’s owns a fancy Enomatica machine. If you’ve never seen one, they’re sleek, state-of-the-art appliances that feature high-tech wine preservation systems and deliver automated pours. Given this fact — and the existence of about 150 more wines on Tucci’s menu — it’s clear vino is big here. But you could have gathered that from all the burgundyred accents in the casually elegant restaurant or from the convivial laughter bubbling up from its bustling, bottle-laden tables. Don’t think that Tucci’s is consistently busy just because of its hooch, though. No, this prettily

Toss in a friendly and knowledgeable waitstaff, and you have one of the top-tier restaurants in the area. Tucci’s menu is big but not overwhelming. It’s filled with influences from Italy, Asia, California and even Hawaii. Most of these influences surface in the huge Outrigger Canoe Combo appetizer ($17). That fun, fry-happy app came with a boatload of: spicy scallops (perfectly “blackened,” served with a mustardy sauce and cooling gorgonzola); calamari laced with ba-

nana peppers and Parmesan (matched with a sort of Italian salsa); colorful Big Island Chips (made with root veggies like taro and lotus); and a shiitake, tomato and onion filled eggroll with a cit-

rusy soy sauce. For a more modest starter, pick the Bibb Salad ($7). Like an elegant upgrade from that popular and still-resurgent iceberg wedge, its tender leaves of bibb lettuce were coated in a horseradishy gorgonzola dressing and further flattered by crispy bacon lardons and diced tomatoes. Some of the best dining deals here are Tucci’s good, handmade pizzas ($10-$12) and stylish pastas ($10-$18, available in smaller sized and priced portions). From the latter, the Spaghetti Bolognese ($10 for the “small” — it was big) was a winner. A chunky, believable and completely delicious bolognese sauce was tossed with whole wheat pasta. The sophisticated entree had a complex, parmesan-enhanced richness slightly leavened by bits of bright tomato.

This makes its great 14-ounce New York Strip Steak ($35) a relatively guiltrestrained splurge. Beautifully grillseared, it was thick and lean but super juicy and had a mild but nice “chew.” Its very fine plate mates (garlicky sauteed spinach and mushrooms, fingerling potatoes and a fruity “cabernet demi”) were

cleverly designed to keep the focus on the high-grade meat. Seafood’s prevalent here, too. It comes in various varieties and styles, but even fish eschewers probably couldn’t resist the refined fish-n-chips treatment of the Chorizo-Crusted Grouper ($23). I loved its crunchy crust (with bits of spicy sausage) and goat cheese potato cake as well as its spicy “tomatoscallion emulsion.” To finish, the buttery and caramel-y Apple Tartlette ($7) — with big clusters of candied nuts plus smoky, spicy and gingery notes — was more complex than I might’ve thought. Ditto for this excellent restaurant. To read G.A. Benton’s blog visit

Professional kitchen hopes to attract food entrepreneurs A vacant warehouse on the city’s East Side soon will be transformed into commercial kitchen for bakers, candy-makers and mobile push-cart operators. The Economic and Development Policy Institute is developing the 8,000-square-foot space as a way to encourage job growth through entrepreneurship, said Bob Kramer, director of food services and safety for the nonprofit agency. “The basis of the community bakery and commissary area is to provide a commercial setting for those food entrepreneurs who want to start a business,” said Kramer, former food-safety supervisor for Columbus Public Health. “At the same time we can provide them a menu of services, including business training, food-safety training, marketing and also loans, if necessary.” The facility, off I-670 at 1655 Old Leonard Ave., is expected to open by June 1. The space will be split up into to two areas. The bakery will have four

separate bake stations, each equipped with a convection oven, large mixer, preparation table, reach-in cooler, sinks, stovetop range and other necessary equipment. The mobile food-cart commissary will have individual cart storage units equipped with a secure fence and locked door, and other essential kitchen amenities. In addition, the warehouse will have a walk-in cooler and freezer available for cold storage along with an area for dry storage available for all who use the facility. State law allows some home-based companies to produce food – jellies, jams, pretzels and bread, for example – for resale. The EDPI facility, meanwhile, provides those businesses with an opportunity to expand by working with commercial equipment in a larger space that’s licensed by the Ohio Depart-

ment of Agriculture and Columbus Public Health, Kramer said. Push-cart operators, which are not self-sufficient and need to work from a base of operations, also could find the new facility attractive, he said. Kramer said that although a pricing structure has

not been set, the organization is looking at hourly rentals for the bakery and longer-term leases for the mobile food-cart commissary “We’re going to be open to whatever their needs are,” Kramer said. For more information, call 614-732-0896.

Surgery an option for sinus problems Frequent sinus infections in children are a common problem, especially for children in daycare settings. The average child can have six to 10 upper respiratory tract infections a year that have symptoms including nasal discharge and blockage. Other factors that contribute to frequent sinus infections are environmental allergies, exposure to second-hand smoke, immunodeficiency, congenital craniofacial anomalies and some inherited conditions. Children with lung problems such as asthma and cystic fibrosis often have related sinus problems. Most viral infections will resolve without treatment. A small percentage will progress to bacterial sinusitis that will require antibiotics for treatment. Narrowing or blockage of the nasal passages or sinus openings may increase the chances that a cold will progress to bacterial sinusitis. Often, children may need medication to help treat sinus problems. This could include nasal steroids, nasal saline, mucousthinning medications called mu-

colytics and some allergy medications such as antihistamines. In a small percentage of children, surCHARLES gery may be ELMARAGHY necessary to relieve the blockage and open the sinuses or nasal passages. Prior to any surgery, a thorough work-up is necessary in order to determine the appropriate treatment course. Younger children do not typically need surgery on the sinuses as their sinuses are still developing. Younger children with frequent sinus infections often have their adenoid, a patch of tissue located where the nose and throat join, removed. The adenoid can be a haven for bacteria and can often block the nasal passages. Removing the adenoid is a simple and painless surgery that can be very effective. When the sinus problem is more involved than an enlarged adenoid, the sinuses need to be imaged via a special X-ray called

a CT scan. A CT scan is the best way to investigate the anatomy of the sinuses and determine if the openings of the sinuses are blocked. If sinus openings are blocked, they can be enlarged using special instruments and a small camera called an endoscope. This is called endoscopic sinus surgery. Nationwide Children’s Hospital’s Rhinology Clinic is unique in that it offers allergy testing and endoscopic evaluation during the same visit. This allows both the allergist and otolaryngologist to determine an appropriate treatment plan. You should always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health care provider prior to starting or stopping any treatment or with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. Dr. Charles Elmaraghy is a member of the Department of Otolaryngology at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and an assistant professor of clinical otolaryngology at the Ohio State University College of Medicine.

Boys team studying for Bradley test By PAUL BATTERSON ThisWeek Community Newspapers

At a glance

The Bexley High School boys basketball team will be cramming for its first-round test in the Division II district tournament. The 11th-seeded Lions, who were 10-8 overall before playing Licking Valley on Feb. 15, will face 12th-seeded Hilliard Bradley in the opening round at 8 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 22, at Grove City. The winner plays Olentangy or Hamilton Township in the second round at 8 p.m. Feb. 25 at Grove City. “They’re a team that’s not in the MSL-Ohio (Division), so we have to do our homework,” coach Dave Gustin said of Bradley. “Generally, when we’ve faced teams the second time around in our league, we have tapes on them and we do some tweaking on what we did the first time. Since it’s a non-league (opponent), we’ve got to get as much information as we can on them.” Bradley was 8-10 before playing Dublin Scioto on Feb. 15. The Jaguars defeated Olentangy Orange 63-46 on Feb. 11, outscoring the Pioneers 38-16 in the second half. Trent Weaver scored 19 points to lead the Jaguars. Bradley has struggled in highscoring games, as it was 2-7 when allowing 50 or more points and 6-3 when allowing under 50. Before playing Licking Valley, the Lions had won back-to-back games. They avenged a 63-55 loss to Newark Catholic on Jan. 7 by defeating the Green Wave 60-51 on Feb. 8 and beat Lakewood 73-56 on Feb. 12. Five players scored in double figures in both wins. Gustin credited the Lions’ defensive play and improved guard play for the wins. “These guys want to guard people more and are really sharing the ball,” Gustin said. “Jalen (Robinette) is seeing the floor more for us and our other guards, Ethan Kinsley and Tyler Bring-

Below are the recent results and coming schedules for the Bexley boys basketball team: *Feb. 8 — Defeated Newark Catholic 60-51. Evan Porter had 14 points and Josh Lake and Jalen Robinette scored 11 apiece. *Feb. 12 — Def. Lakewood 73-56. Jon Primes had 22 points, Robinette had 14 and Tyler Bringman had 10. *Feb. 15 — Played Licking Valley *Feb. 18 — At Columbus Academy. The Lions defeated Academy 76-72 on Jan. 21. Feb. 22 — Hilliard Bradley in first round of Division II district tournament, 8 p.m. at Grove City. Winner plays Olentangy or Hamilton Township in second round, 8 p.m. Feb. 25 at Grove City. Of note: The Lions were 10-8 overall and 6-6 in the MSL-Ohio before Feb. 15. *MSL-Ohio game

man, are gaining more experience and getting better.” •The boys and girls swimming teams will have eight individuals and four relays competing in the Division II district meet on Friday, Feb. 18, at Ohio State. Hayden Humphrey of the boys team is seeded third in the district in the 100-yard breaststroke after swimming a time of 1 minute, 4.84 seconds at the Columbus Academy sectional meet on Feb. 12. The girls team has three individuals seeded in the top 10, as Anna Bauer is seventh in the 50 freestyle (26.66), Sierra Humphrey is ninth in the 100 breast (1:16.29) and Claire Beckett is 10th in the 100 breast (1:17.45). At district, the top three finishers in each boys swimming event and top four finishers in each girls swimming event automatically qualify for the state meet Feb. 23-26 at the C.T. Branin Natatorium in Canton. In addition, 11 at-large state berths in each swimming event will be awarded based on statewide times.

Wrestlers prepare for sectional

Basketball team enters tourney with momentum


ThisWeek Community Newspapers


ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The St. Charles Preparatory School wrestling team was unable to defend its CCL title, but Chris Suozzi believes he can call upon his experience in the coming weeks. The senior 135-pounder won his second consecutive league title in the round-robin CCL meet on Feb. 12 at Watterson. “It was definitely one of my goals after winning last year (at 125 pounds),” said Suozzi, who is 22-11 overall. “It’s not easy to do, dealing with the pressure and the expectations of being a defending champion. You have to prove yourself every time you go on the mat, so it’s great to be able to do this a second time.” The Cardinals will compete in a Division I sectional on Saturday, Feb. 19, at Marysville. The top four in all weight classes advance to the district Feb. 25-26 at Hilliard Darby. “It’s a big-time confidence builder going into sectional,” Suozzi said. We’re kind of in a tough sectional and any edge we can get

will help.” Other teams at the sectional include, Briggs, Darby, Delaware, Grove City, Hilliard Davidson, Marysville, Mount Vernon, Thomas Worthington, Upper Arlington, Watkins Memorial, Westerville South and Whetstone. “It will depend on the draw and who is healthy on who will get out to district,” coach Joe Moyer said. “I think Ryan Sanders will be second seeded (at 215 pounds) and we’ll see from there.” Sanders enters the postseason 28-9 after

finishing second in the CCL to Evan Jackson of Hartley. Jackson beat Sanders 6-3 in the league meet as the Cardinals standout fell to 1-3 this season against his rival. Also finishing second at the CCL meet were Mason Tigner (145), Kenny Sweeney (160) and Eric Kinsley (171). In the CCL team scores, Ready won the title with 256.5 points followed by DeSales (183.5), St. Charles (150), Hartley (137) and Watterson (48). See CARDINALS, page B2

The Columbus School for Girls basketball team overcame a slow start to post a 7-3 record in its final 10 regular-season games. The Unicorns enter the Division III district tournament with some momentum, and they like their draw. CSG plays a first-round game against Amanda-Clearcreek at 8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 17, at Dublin Scioto. The winner advances to the second round against eighthseeded Columbus Academy or Newark Catholic at 8 p.m. Feb. 24 at Granville. The Unicorns lost to Amanda-Clearcreek 42-41 on Feb. 3 and defeated Columbus Academy 47-37 on Feb. 8. Coach Stephanie Jones believes the Unicorns should have beaten Amanda-Clearcreek. Guard Enri Small hit what would

We need to defend the post better. (Amanda-Clearcreek) is very beatable.” Amanda-Clearcreek’s post player is 6-foot-2 Jenna Ruble. She scored 16 of her team’s 42 points in the win over CSG.

Africentric’s winning culture embraced by players In a relatively short amount of time, Africentric has built a winning tradition in girls basketball. In its eight years of existence, Africentric has won two state championships and five City League titles under coach Will McKinney. The Nubians’ fifth City championship came Feb. 12 in a 60-52 victory over previously unbeaten Northland before a large and enthusiastic crowd at Mifflin. Africentric’s senior star, Raven Ferguson, led the way with 22 points, nine rebounds, three blocked shots and two steals. It was her fourth consecutive City championship game and her third victory. “This one really means a lot to me because we ran the City League for a

while, but we didn’t get it done last year (against Brookhaven) and that was hard,” she said. “At Africentric we have a tradition of winning, so bringing the trophy back to our school LARRY after missing it a year LARSON ago is great and, since this is my senior year, it makes it even better.” Talking about her team’s performance against Northland, Ferguson said, “Beating a great team like Northland meant we had to compete hard on every play of the game and every second of the game up and down the court. We

wanted to be the team who could say that we beat an unbeaten Division I team. We wanted to be the team who could say that Northland is now 18-1 and we are the one, and it truly took a full team effort to do it. “Every player on our team stepped up this week. Players that didn’t see action in the game worked so hard in practice to get us ready. Everyone has a role on this team and as long as we are all working toward the same goal we will be just fine. I know that experience means a lot and we have been in so many big games and in tough situations in those big games, and I think that helped us a lot against Northland. I feel like I have played in that atmosphere all four years that I have been at Africentric.

“This team is very special because it has lots of talented girls who can compete at a high level. Earlier in the year the younger players were trying to learn about high school basketball and us five seniors had to teach them how to play Africentric basketball and how to play hard and play under pressure. Since this is our last chance, we as seniors want to win so bad and we push each other and we push our teammates, but as the year has worn on, the younger players have grown and now they are pushing us. There are no slackers on this team.” Looking ahead to the postseason, which begins Tuesday, Feb. 22, for Africentric, Ferguson said, “The City League title is a wonderful boost for us going

Hartley Roundup

ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Hartley High School girls basketball team lost in a Division II district semifinal the past two seasons, and the Hawks know getting past that hurdle won’t be easy this season. The sixth-seeded Hawks, who lost in a district semifinal the past two seasons, open the tournament with a second-round game against Lakewood at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 23, at Marysville. If Hartley advances, it could face top-seeded Olentangy in a district semifinal at 8 p.m. March 1 at Pickerington North and likely would face thirdseeded Hilliard Bradley, seventh-seeded Bexley, eighthseeded DeSales or 11th-seeded Licking Valley in a district final at 8:30 p.m. March 3 at Ohio Dominican University. “(Playing Olentangy) would be a huge game,” coach Mike Lanza said. “It was a tough decision to make as to where to go on the bracket, and we kind of felt this was the best place for us. There’s never going to be an easy semifinal game.” Hartley gained momentum heading into the tournament with a 51-49 overtime win over Watterson on Feb. 5. The loss was Watterson’s first in CCL play. Jaana Motton led the Hawks with 13 points. Anna Kirk and Robin Kraus had 11 points apiece and Jyla Hicks scored 10. “It was a real big game, and we were real pleased with the outcome,” Lanza said. The win wasn’t enough to capture the CCL championship. The Hawks finished 6-2 in the league, one game behind Watterson (7-1). DeSales was third at 4-4, followed by Ready (2-6) and Columbus Schools for Girls (1-7). Lanza said he is pleased with the way his team has played despite having a challenging regular-season schedule, which he thinks has helped the Hawks prepare for the postseason. “I think we’ve handled pres-


sure a lot better, and we’ve been able to hold our poise down the stretch of games and finish,” Lanza said. “We’re hoping that carries over into the tournament.” •The wrestling team heads to the Division II sectional tournament on Saturday, Feb. 19, at Hilliard Bradley. The top four finishers in each weight class advance to the district tournament on Feb. 25-26 at Columbus East. Other seeds in the sectional with the 10th-seeded Hawks are Olentangy (No. 1), Jonathan Alder (No. 2), Whitehall (No. 4), Bradley (No. 7) and London (No. 11). “Everybody that’s in the lineup has a shot to qualify for district,” coach Kevin Petrella said. “I think it helps that, as a whole, the Central District in Division II this year is a little thin, at least more so than in the past. As a team, I think a top-four or top-five finish would be a goal.” The Hawks competed in the CCL meet on Feb. 12, finishing fourth (137 points) behind Ready (256.5), DeSales (183.5) and St. Charles (150), and ahead of Watterson (48). Evan Jackson (215 pounds) and Jordan Dickerson (heavyweight) were league champions. “I think we’ve just been getting better as the season has gone on,” Petrella said. “We’ve improved our technique and have been wrestling well. I’ve seen a lot of good stuff from the guys recently.” •Members of the boys and girls swimming and diving teams will compete in the Division II district meet on Friday, Feb. 18, and Saturday, Feb. 19, at Ohio State. The top three finishers in each boys swimming event, the top four finishers in each girls swimming event and the top two finishers in boys and girls diving automatically advance to the state meet Feb. 23-26 at the C.T. Branin Natatorium in Canton. The girls team finished second (204) behind champion

•The girls basketball team will not see a familiar opponent in the Division II district tournament until at least a semifinal. The seventh-seeded Lions will face eighth-seeded DeSales or Sparta Highland in the second round of the tournament at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 23, at Olentangy Liberty. The winner faces thirdseeded Bradley, 11th-seeded Licking Valley or Utica in a district semifinal at 6 p.m. March 1 at Pickerington North. While the Lions haven’t played DeSales or Highland, coach Jim Strode said his team has faced similar styles of play. “We know what we have in Highland and DeSales,” Strode said. “We do not have to worry about (matching up with) two or three 6-footers there. They are similar size to us.” Senior Sara Prater said closing the regular season with back-toback wins over Columbus East (52-44 on Feb. 9) and Columbus Academy (53-37 on Feb. 11) was an important step in the final preparation for the tournament. The Lions finished third in the MSL-Ohio at 9-5, behind Granville (10-4) and Licking Valley (10-4), and ahead of Newark Catholic (8-6), Academy (7-7), Lakewood (5-9), Heath (4-10) and

Operation Buckeye founder hopes to top 25,000 boxes this year By KEVIN PARKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Operation Buckeye started out on the dining room table of founder Jim Caronis’Worthington home. It moved into his garage when his late wife, Nancy Priode Caronis, wanted someplace to serve Thanksgiving dinner. The nonprofit organization, which packs and ships boxes of snacks, candy, Girl Scout cookies, playing cards and other items to soldiers serving in Iraq and Afghanistan to help lighten the burden and gloom of being far from home, now has its headquarters on North High Street in Clintonville, a post office box for donations in Westerville and volunteers throughout central Ohio. Caronis said last week that he was inspired to launch Operation Buckeye back in 2006 after reading a piece by the late Dispatch columnist Mike Harden about a local Army officer and his soldiers who, instead of coming home from South Korea, were diverted instead to further duty in Iraq.

Caronis immediately told his wife he wanted to send boxes of goodies to those poor military personnel, who so abruptly found themselves diverted from reuniting with loved ones to putting their lives on the line. They decided to pledge $10 for each of their 13 grandchildren and match that figure with their own money, expecting to send perhaps 20 gift boxes to soldiers. They wound up sending 94 that first time around, Jim Caronis recalled last week. The letters of appreciation received in return were heart-warming, so when Nancy asked her husband if they were going to do it again the next year, he replied: “You betcha!” With the help of a growing number of like-minded people, Caronis said that the second year’s batch of boxes increased to 184. To date, the total is 18,000 boxes. Caronis hopes that figure tops 25,000 by the end of 2011. “Each and every year we’ve grown, and we continue to grow,”

Caronis said. Nancy Caronis passed away this past Nov. 3, and her husband now carries on with Operation Buckeye in her honor. Operation Buckeye depends upon a network of Army chaplains, the National Guard and occasionally Ohio State University head football coach Jim Tressel to come up with the names of soldiers in need of the pick-me-up one of the boxes could provide. Caronis was a member of the same fraternity,Alpha Tau Omega, as Tressel and his brother, OSU running backs coach Dick Tressel. The latter has served as honorary chairman of Operation Buckeye and Caronis said that on one of his visits to the war zone, Tressel returned with 500 names for the organization. Often, these are enlisted men and women with little in the way of family support back home, according to Caronis. “If you’ve got nobody writing a letter to you, you’re sure as heck not getting a box,” Caronis said. Girl Scout cookies and beef

jerky have been among the most requested items on the part of soldiers serving in war zones, according to the Operation Buckeye chairman, but the volunteers who pack the boxes also include things like magazines donated by Half Price Books, wet wipes offered by Buffalo Wild Wings and playing cards among the 45 to 50 items contained in each. “We call them care boxes,” Caronis said. “They’re sort of like snowflakes; there’s no two alike.” A small American flag and, as the name implies, a buckeye are among the “signature items” contained in each. While many of the items included in the “care boxes” are donated, the cost of shipping them falls on Operation Buckeye, and it’s gone up from $8.50 a box to $10.95 today. “The purpose of our mission is to bring a touch of home to the soldiers who are away from home for a long time,” Caronis added. Information about volunteer opportunities is available at

By Lorrie Cecil/ThisWeek

Mim Strait organizes items that will be boxed and sent to troops in Afghanistan and Iraq as part of Operation Buckeye. The organization is staffed only by volunteers and 100 percent of the donations goes to items for the boxes as well as shipping. For more information on the organization, visit
