Etna considers biodiesel pilot program By MICHAEL J. MAURER ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Etna Township is looking into a pilot project that involves trying to grow sunflower or canola crops for biofuel. The township’s economic development committee met Feb. 17 to discuss using abandoned lanes of state Route 158 for the pilot project to determine if the township could successfully grow

such crops on interstitial highway land and use the crop for biofuel. Committee member Mark Schaff said he has been exploring the idea with the Ohio Department of Transportation and that a meeting was scheduled for 3 p.m. March 17 at Route 158 and U.S. Route 40, with ODOT representatives in attendance to explore the possibility of establishing such a pilot program. “We want to expand the scope of the

gateway landscaping program to include sunflower seed and flax seed and other biodiesel fuels that are also very attractive,” Schaff said. “It’s possible to meet simultaneously the goal of the gateway landscaping program for beautification and to simultaneously produce fuel.” Township zoning official Chris Harkness said the project could help give Etna

We’ll work out all the bugs on the abandoned section of Route 158 that would be the ideal perfect test site to say, ‘Let’s try it out. It’s not being used anyway. If we are successful there, we can talk about moving to U.S. Route 40, and then we can talk about moving to Interstate 70 …

Levy or no levy

Licking Heights board begins budget-cut planning By MICHAEL J. MAURER ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Licking Heights Board of Education met Feb. 15 to begin planning both for an 11.9-mill property-tax operating levy and for cuts that district officials know must come. Board president Mark Satterwhite said it is

difficult to propose cuts, but it is also responsible and necessary. “Some people say whenever there is a levy, the district puts out a list and it’s just blackmail or something,” Satterwhite said. “We have to deal with this every month because we’re always looking at our financing, so to me it’s just being honest. If this does not pass, you need to know

up front what we are dealing with. Even if it does pass, we will have to cut anyway just because of the way funding is going. We could not ask for a levy that would maintain everything we have right now.” Superintendent Thomas Tucker said the disSee BUDGET-CUT PLANNING, page A2

The Etna Township Zoning Commission met Feb. 16 to continue work on a proposed 86-acre development along state Route 310, between the Cameron Chase and Cumberland Trail subdivisions. The proposal covers land both east and west of Route 310 and would require construction of access roads that eventually would require a traffic signal. Attorney Connie Klema, on behalf of JBW properties, submitted the application in January. The land is zoned for agricultural use. The proposal calls for retail development on the west of Route 310 and professional office development on the east of Route 310, with residential development to the rear of each. Commissioners expressed concerns about age restrictions in both residential areas and in commercial areas of the proposal, including facilities for the elderly. Alternate commission member Mike Kerner said restrictions limiting commercial use to certain business codes would take care of any age issues. “I don’t know why we would entertain what age a person is there,” Kerner said. “Someone may be in a nursing-care facility for something other than old age — maybe breathing ailments or mobility ailments or other disabilities that require them to be in a continuous nursing-care facility. Does it matter if they are 24 years old or 36 or 50 or 70?” Commission member Bill Young said age restrictions are common, to separate elderly use from young family use. “But it’s possible (that families could occupy the properties) if you have attached condos,”Young said. “I would imagine they want a community where it’s primarily empty-nesters — older people without children with them. A lot of places will restrict it so you can have a grandchild come stay with you for a week of the year or something.” Commission chair Trent Stepp said he was concerned about ambiguity in “units” in zoning restrictions that would limit development to four units per acre. Commission members also discussed requiring See DEVELOPMENT RESTRICTIONS, page A2

SWL to use back of spring break for makeup By MICHAEL J. MAURER ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Southwest Licking Board of Education has affirmed a makeup schedule for calamity days that will have all district students attending

school during the last two days of spring break, Thursday and Friday. Students also might have to attend school that Wednesday, in addition to days tacked on to the end of the school year. Superintendent Forest Yocum said

he thinks the General Assembly would return the number of calamity days from the current three days to five. Then-Gov. Ted Strickland had reduced the number of calamity days from five to three as part of his educational-reform bill two years

ago. With both the governor’s office and the General Assembly changing parties, many of Strickland’s education laws are being reviewed, including the calamity days. See SWL TO USE, page A8

Etna considers biodiesel pilot program Continued from page A1 a recognized identity, based on a common crop image. “The sunflower could become the signature of Etna Township,” Harkness said. Schaff said the program could provide costless fuel to the township and save ODOT money in maintaining roads. “If we are successful with this proj-

ect, we can produce fuel for township vehicles,” Schaff said. “And we have reason to because we can be successful. Utah, North Carolina and at least one other state are presently successful of taking advantage of median strips and sides of highways and land that’s not being used to produce biofuel crops. The department of transportation saves money on fuel.”

The goal is to start with Route 158 as a pilot program and then expand it. “We’ll work out all the bugs on the abandoned section of Route 158 that would be the ideal perfect test site to say, ‘Let’s try it out,’” Schaff said. “It’s not being used anyway. If we are successful there, we can talk about moving to U.S. Route 40, and then we can talk about moving to Interstate 70. Interstate 70 is

BUDGET-CUT PLANNING Continued from page A1 trict had done very well with its revenue streams, having avoided an operating levy for four years, as the board had promised. “Four years ago, May 2007 was the last time the Licking Heights Local School District approved additional operating dollars for our schools,” Tucker said. “At that time we had 2,700 students. Today we have 3,500 students. In 2007 the board promised there would be no request for additional operating dollars for at least four years. The board kept their promise. Normally districts ask every three years for

P L

operating dollars.” Treasurer Jennifer Vanover said the district has grown significantly in student enrollment, which directly increases costs and lost state and other outside funding. “Since the last budget, we’ve gained about 1,000 students and lost almost $700,000 in state funding,” Vanover said. “Maybe $700,000 is not a lot compared to a $27-million budget, but it’s still money that has to be made up. We are getting it from all directions.” Satterwhite said one of the state’s standard education funding reports — the Cupp Report — showed that Licking Heights

to everything in between,” he said. “I’ll be surprised if ODOT does not agree to expand the gateway landscaping program. We’ll be in a position to argue to move this program to the Interstate system. We’ve got perfect experimental setup that won’t cost anything.” “It is a perfect site for it,” Harkness said. “To get the initial test is going to be a huge step.”

DEVELOPMENT RESTRICTIONS

is among the lowest cost school districts. The report is named after Ohio Supreme Court Justice Robert Cupp, who was a senator at the time of the “DeRolph v. State” school-funding litigation when the report was established. “We’re below everyone in the county,” Satterwhite said. “We’re actually on the low end. No one likes to hear that because they feel they pay too much. I don’t care what it says, but if you look at it, we are doing more with less.” Satterwhite said the board probably would hold a community outreach meeting during the first week of March.

Continued from page A1 minimum size requirements from 1,000 square feet to 1,200 square feet per unit and whether the development should be allowed to build private streets to a lesser standard that would be required for public streets. “If they do insist on keeping (the streets) private, could we require them to post a notice at each street, saying it is a private street not maintained by the township?” Young said. Young said he thinks the developers were trying to avoid some of the costs associated with public streets that eventually are deeded to the local government. “I think they’re trying to get away from hav-

ing to put sidewalks in,” Young said. Stepp said he would like to require that even private streets be built to the higher standard to avoid maintenance problems later. “I think the zoning text should require that any private streets be built to the same standard that a public street would be built to — gutters, sidewalks, curbs, depth, inspections,” Stepp said. “That way if it were to get (deeded) to the township 10 years from now because the people did not want to pay for it, we would not inherit a problem.” Commissioners did not take formal action on the application, which is expected to be discussed during several meetings. www.ThisWeekNews.com

This Week Only INTERNATIONAL COIN COLLECTORS ASSOCIATION is in Grove City, Worthington & Circleville! By KEN MCINTOSH STAFF WRITER ICCA will be placing ads in newspapers, radio and running television spots next week asking people to bring in any old silver and gold coins made before 1965. Those that bring in their coins will be able to speak with collectors one on one and have their coins looked at with an expert set of eyes. With the help of these ICCA members, offers will be made to those that have coins made before 1965. Offers will be made based on silver or gold content and the rarity of the coins. All coins made before 1965 will be examined and purchased including gold coins, silver coins, silver dollars, all types of nickels and pennies. Those that decide to sell their coins will be paid on the spot. If you are like a lot of people you might have a few old coins or even a coffee can full lying around. If you have ever wondered what they are worth now might be your chance to find out and even sell them if you choose. They could be worth a lot according to the International Coin Collectors Association also known as ICCA. Collectors will pay a fortune for some coins and currency for their collections. If it is rare enough, one coin could be worth over $100,000 according to Eric Helms, coin collector and ICCA member. One ultra rare dime, an 1894S Barber, sold for a record $1.9 million to a collector in July of 2007. While that is an extreme example, many rare and valuable coins are stashed away in dresser drawers or lock boxes around the country. The ICCA and its collector members have organized a traveling event in search of all types of coins and currency. Even common coins can be worth a significant amount due to the high price of silver and gold, says Helms. Washington quarters and Roosevelt dimes can be worth many times their face value. Recent silver markets have driven the price up on common coins made of silver. Helms explains that all half dollars, quarters and dimes made before 1965 contain 90% silver and are sought after any time silver prices rise. Right now it’s a sellers market he said. The rarest coins these collectors are looking for include $20, $10, $5 and $2 1/2 gold coins and any coin made before 1850. These coins always bring big premiums according to the ICCA. Silver dollars are also very sought after nowadays.

Other types of items the ICCA will be purchasing during this event include U.S. currency, gold bullion, investment gold, silver bars, silver rounds, proof sets, etc. Even foreign coins are sought after and will be purchased. Also at this event anyone can sell their gold jewelry, dental gold or anything made of gold on the spot. Gold is currently trading at over $1,100.00 per ounce near an all time high. Bring anything you think might be gold and the collectors will examine, test and price it for free. If you decide to sell, you will be paid on the spot – it has been an unknown fact that coin dealers have always paid more for jewelry and scrap gold than other jewelers and pawn brokers. So whether you have one coin you think might be valuable or a large collection you recently inherited, you can talk to these collectors for free. If your lucky you may have a rarity worth thousands. Either way there is nothing to lose and it sounds like fun! For more information on this event visit the ICCA website at WWW.INTERNATIONALCOINCOLLECTORS.COM

Pediatric HealthSource

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, mucous-thinning medications called mucolytics and some allergy medications such as anti-histamines. In a small percentage of children, surgery may be 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 CHARLES is more involved than an ELMARAGHY 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.

SWL to use back of Moms are for a lifetime. spring break for makeup Continued from page A1 Yocum said the General Assembly had considered allowing districts to make up lost time by simply extending the school day by a short time but that such an option likely wouldn’t be adopted. “They were going to have a provision where we could extend the school day,”Yocum said. “The last thing I heard was that that was removed. They’re not talking about extending the school day hours. But there will be five days given, I would expect.” Thus far this year, every building has missed at least seven days of school, and afternoon kinder-

garten and Etna Elementary School have missed more,Yocum said. Board president Dave Engel said students would lose springbreak days first and possibly the first day of summer vacation. “Friday, June 3, was originally scheduled to be the first day of summer break and will now be a full school day,” Engel said. “Kindergarten and Etna will have some additional time beyond that to be made up.” “We have two to make up everywhere,” board member Cindy Zaino said. “That would be April 1 and March 31.” “Parents have spoken to me, and they just want some cer-

tainty,” board member Don Huber said. “This makes certain we have school on Wednesday, March 30 (depending on changes to state law); Thursday, March 31; and Friday, April 1. There are so many (days already missed), we have to use at least two (spring-break days) even if the state goes to five. The big difference will come at the end of the school year.” Treasurer Rick Jones confirmed that the expected makeup days would be two, assuming the legislature changes the law and there are no more lost days. “If we get five (calamity days), we’ll have only two days to make up,” Jones said.

Prep Notes

Bulldogs boys wary of being top seed By KURTIS ADAMS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Coach Devin Fulk isn’t taking anything for granted even though the Heath High School boys basketball team is seeded first for the Division III district tournament. The Bulldogs had a chance to clinch their first MSL-Ohio Division title and first league title of any kind since 1999, but they squandered a 10-point firsthalf lead and lost 59-45 on Feb. 15 at Granville.

Instead, Heath was 14-5 overall and 10-3 in the MSL-Ohio while the Blue Aces were 13-5 and 10-3 entering their respective league finales against Newark Catholic and Whitehall on Feb. 18. Columbus Academy was one game back at 9-4 in the MSL-Ohio before playing Bexley. “If we’re going to make a run in the tournament we’re going to see more games like this one,” Fulk said after the Blue Aces overcame a 21-11 second-quarter deficit. Upsets have been commonplace in

Division III in recent seasons. The last No. 1 seed to advance to the regional was Johnstown in 2006. Cardington was the top seed a year ago and was eliminated 64-61 by Centerburg in a semifinal. Harley lost in a district final in both 2007 and ’09, while Madison Plains stumbled in a final in ’08. “It’s a wide-open district, maybe more so than any other division,” said Fulk, whose first team at Heath won once in the tournament a year ago but lost 40-36 to Bloom-Carroll in a district semifinal. “We’ve definitely got our

work cut out for us.” The MSL-Ohio has produced a No. 1 seed in three consecutive seasons and four times since the division was created in 2003-04. Fulk was a senior point guard that year at Licking Valley, which earned the top seed in Division II. Newark Catholic was the top seed in Division IV the past two seasons, advancing to a regional final in 2009 and the state final a year ago. “When I came here, I looked at how things went the past three or four years,” first-year Granville coach Jamie Pear-

son said. “(Licking County) had a state champion in Division I (Newark in 2008) and a state finalist in Division IV. This is basketball country.” Pearson’s choice of words might not sit well with area baseball and football coaches, but it’s becoming clear that the county is earning more respect when it comes to basketball. The Blue Aces are the sixth seed in Division II, and several coaches in the district have said that the Wildcats could be dangerous in See NOTES, page A10

Nubians continue to roll along

Layoff could benefit girls in long run

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 LARRY Feb. 12 in a LARSON 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 after missing it a year 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, Fergu-

At a glance

Watkins Memorial High School girls basketball coach Kyle Oyster is looking on the bright side of his team’s lengthy layoff before its opening game in the Division I district tournament. The Warriors, who had a firstround bye, will meet ninthseeded Upper Arlington with a berth in a district semifinal up for grabs on Thursday, Feb. 24, at Hamilton Township. Watkins Memorial hasn’t played since defeating Franklin Heights 6235 in the regular-season finale on Feb. 11, giving the Warriors nearly two weeks to prepare for the postseason. “It is a long break, but I think it can be pretty beneficial,” Oyster said. “We’re losing five seniors, so our other girls are going to have to step up next year. This gives them a lot of extra practice time. “I used to be a volunteer (football) coach with my uncle (Chris Kubbs) at Marion Pleasant, and I saw how those extra practices really helped the following year. We have this extra opportunity and we’re going to use it.” Still, the lack of live action didn’t necessarily come at a good time. The Warriors, who also defeated Mount Vernon 48-

Injuries slowed girls team’s development By KURTIS ADAMS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Licking Heights High School girls basketball team managed to win two games during the second half of the season even as the injuries mounted. Those missing time included leading scorer Kyasia Duling, a 6-foot-2 sophomore, and classmate Alyssa Stanley, who began the season as the starting point guard. Duling, an AAU veteran, averaged 12.2 points as the Hornets finished 4-17 overall with a 6739 loss to fourth-seeded Jonathan Alder in a Division II first-round tournament game Feb. 15 at Westerville Central. Also the team’s top rebounder, she led the Hornets in scoring in 11 of the 17 games in which she played. “We had to adjust quite a bit in the second half,” second-year coach Alison Pence said. “That was tough because we were working toward becoming the team we thought we’d be.” Duling and 5-9 sophomore Chelsea Dunkle spent considerable time on the bench in the tournament loss because of foul trouble, and a 16-6 second-quarter advantage sent the Pioneers into halftime leading 36-17. Brandi Hunt, a junior guard, led the turnover-plagued Hornets with nine points on three 3-pointers. Dunkle, who scored 21 points in a 65-58 victory See LARSON, page A10 over Division I Grove City on

The Warriors were followed by West Jefferson (11-3), Liberty Union (9-5), Grandview (8-6), Fisher Catholic (6-8) and Berne Union (5-9). Millersport (0-14) placed eighth. Five of the eight teams finished .500 or better during the regular season while Fisher Catholic went 9-11. The Hornets defeated Grandview 42-39 in overtime in a second-round league game on Jan. 14. They also beat Millersport 44-26 on Feb. 9 and 54-34 on Dec. 18. The Hornets, who lost five games by seven or fewer points during the first half of the season, also will return junior Mady Mynatt and sophomore Courtney Jones.

Corbett shot 50.7 percent (37 of 73) from behind the 3-point line during the regular season to lead the district. Hobbs was right behind her at 48.1 percent (38 of 79).

The girls outscored runner-up Hartley 281.5204.5 to win the sectional team title. The boys gave Granville a sweep as they outscored second-place Columbus Academy 283-237. The Division II state meet will be held Wednesday, Feb. 23, through Friday, Feb. 25, at Branin Natatorium in Canton. •BOWLING — The Newark boys (4-1) and girls (4-0) teams won OCC-Ohio championships. Senior Bret Peck, a boys state qualifier two years ago, rolled the first 300 game in East Central Conference history on Jan. 29. The sectional tournaments were held Feb. 18. The district tournaments will be held at HP Lanes in Columbus on Saturday, Feb. 26.

the postseason despite being seeded 16th. The fourth-seeded Green Wave, meanwhile, also might contend for another district championship. It influenced the MSL-Ohio standings by defeating Heath 51-47 on Jan. 21 and Granville 69-67 on Feb. 12. Also, Newark Catholic is 123 in the postseason over the past three years. “I’ll tell you what, they’re really going to benefit from playing the bigger schools in our league,” Fulk said. “Newark Catholic’s shown they have more in that program than just one or two good senior classes.” •HOCKEY — The Newark Generals have done it again. The Generals parlayed another strong secondhalf run into a spot in next month’s state club tournament. They closed the regular season 5-11 and placed fourth in the Greater Columbus High School Club Hockey League to earn the final postseason berth, finishing 12-11-1 overall with 25 points while winning a tiebreaker with Athens. Also qualifying were regular-season champion PRPC (15-7-2, 32 points), Hilliard (14-7-3, 31) and Northeast (14-7-3, 31). The Generals will be making their fourth consecutive state-tournament appearance March 1113. They captured the state title in 2009. •SWIMMING — The Granville girls team kadams@thisweeknews.com earned five No. 1 seeds for the Division II district www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com

HORNETS Continued from page A9 defense and we were able to press at times. We’d like to be able to run our offense a little better, though. We need to learn to play under control a little more. “So we have a lot to do this summer. We need to get into the gym and keep working to get better. We need to look at this season as a learning experience.” •Aided by a 12-game winning streak earlier this season, the boys basketball team earned the eighth seed for the Division II district tournament. Coach Nathan Clark made a bold move at the draw meeting by going on the same line as sixth-seeded Granville, and the two will meet in a firstround game at Lakewood on Wednesday, Feb. 23. The Blue Aces, who shared first place in the MSL-Ohio with Division III top-seeded Heath entering their respective league finales, beat the Hornets 64-55 at home Dec. 7. It was the second game of the season for Licking Heights, which started 0-4.
