Gender Road

March 1 bid opening set for roadwork By TARA STUBBS-FIGURSKI ThisWeek Community Newspapers Canal Winchester will open bids March 1 for the first phase of improvements to Gender Road. The village was awarded a $2-million Ohio Public Works Commission grant for intersection improvements at Gender Road and Winchester Boulevard and at Gender Road and Foxhill Drive.

Public works director Matt Peoples said at village council’s service committee meeting on Monday, Feb. 21, that he expects to bring legislation to the full council on March 7. “We wanted to get it out there in front of the service (committee) to get a sponsor for that,” he said. “We have been talking about this for quite a few years.” Peoples said Canal Winchester applied for OPWC funding for the 2010 construction season but was not suc-

cessful. Village officials expanded the project, brought it back and were awarded the funding, he said. The project now includes the intersection of Winchester Boulevard and Gender Road. Plans call for adding a southbound turn lane on eastbound Winchester Boulevard. “There is a lot of capacity for turns there,” he said. “People go to Walmart, pick up dinner and then go home. We do believe a second turn lane is ad-

vantageous for us and would take care of a lot of congestion.” As part of the Gender Road improvements, a median will be added on Gender Road near Winchester Boulevard, in line with O’Charley’s and Walgreens. There were two rollover crashes at the intersection last year, in September and November, Peoples said. “They went off the road due to a Tbone accident (caused by) a car coming off the private drive on Winchester

Boulevard,” he said. Plans call for installing a three-foot median to prevent left turns onto Winchester Boulevard from the private drives, thus eliminating cross traffic movement. Because there is no designated turn lane, it has been a problem from the beginning, Peoples said. He said village officials met with representatives of the Casto Co., which See MARCH 1, page A2

Violet Township will receive a state grant to fund approximately three-quarters of a project to replace the Waterloo Road bridge. The Ohio Public Works Commission this month announced Violet Township will receive a $108,000 grant to enhance the Waterloo Road bridge to allow for two-way traffic. The township and the Fairfield County Engineer’s Office will share the remaining $86,000 cost of replacing the bridge. However, a portion of that share will be temporarily offset by a $36,000 OPWC loan for the project, which can be paid off at no interest over 30 years. “The Violet Township Board of Trustees and (Fairfield) County Engineer’s Office should be commended for their willingness to partner together in receiving state funding,” Violet Township engineer Greg Butcher said. “Combining resources from both the township and engineer’s ofSee GRANT, page A3

Legislation would limit truck traffic on Elm Street By TARA STUBBS-FIGURSKI ThisWeek Community Newspapers Modern technology is creating an oldfashioned problem in Canal Winchester. Global positioning system (GPS) devices are sending trucks headed for the Dysart Corp. building on Elm Street down Waterloo Road to Elm. Village public works director Matt Peoples and Dysart president Scott Jordan agree that this is the most direct route, but some street signs have already been damaged and the turn from Waterloo to Elm isn’t designed to accommodate large trucks. As a result, Canal Winchester Village Council is considering two ordinances: one to prohibit vehicles that weigh more than 26,000 pounds from using Elm Street and one that would ban such vehicles from turning right from southbound High Street to westbound Waterloo Street. Council heard the first reading of the legislation at its Feb. 21 meeting. “Basically, we are going to prohibit over 26,000 pounds on Elm Street,”

Peoples said. He said it’s very difficult for trucks to make the turn from Waterloo Road to Elm Street. Part of the problem, he said, is that GPS units direct drivers to the shortest route, which would be down Elm Street, but that isn’t the most logical one for trucks. Peoples said the extra truck traffic stems from a good cause: The Dysart Corp. has picked up more work. Dysart is a contract packaging company that has been in Canal Winchester since 1981. “I met with the company and they understand fully and are trying to get a handle on it,” Peoples said. Village officials would prefer truck drivers to use High Street to Oak Street to access the back of the Dysart Corp., he said, noting there is a direct path right into the facility from the back. Jordan said company officials are aware of the issues and would also like to bring drivers down Oak Street, but the GPS diSee VILLAGE, page A2

The railroad tracks that cross Gender Road in Canal Winchester are “failing,” according to public works director Matt Peoples, but getting them fixed depends on money the rail company doesn’t have. Peoples told Canal Winchester Village Council on Feb. 21 officials with the railroad — which he later identified as the Indiana and Ohio Railway — have acknowledged that there are problems with the tracks but have told the village there is no money for repairs. Peoples said village officials met with railroad engineers at the crossing, near Canal Street. He said the engineers indicated “with some confidence the crossing is failing.” Any repairs to the tracks would also

involve a three- to four-day closure of Gender Road. “Gender Road is not closed easily,” Peoples said. It will be a struggle if the 18,000 vehicles that drive on Gender each day have to be detoured, he said. “That is a lot to reroute, especially truck traffic … bus traffic,” Peoples said. The tracks were laid in 1997 or 1998, he said. The problem is that a section of rubber used at the crossing is failing, Peoples said. A short-term solution would involve removing and replacing the rubber. “They said they no longer use (the rubber) and it probably shouldn’t have been put there,” Peoples said, adding the material is better served on a lowlying street like Trine Street. Madison Township Assistant Fire Chief Robert Bates said department

officials believe the rough tracks are causing wear and tear on the springs on department vehicles. “We obviously travel over the tracks every day,” he said. “The crossing is kind of rough.” Mershon asked if there were a cost estimate to fix the tracks. Peoples said there is none at this point since village officials only recently met with railroad representatives. “We need to figure out what is the repair and how long it would take,” he said. Mayor Michael Ebert said he wasn’t in favor of a temporary solution for the problem. “It could be another 15 years before we get them to look,” he said. “I think we should look at something permanent.”

March 1 bid opening set for roadwork High and Waterloo, truckers can turn left. This takes them to Hill Road, which connects to the state Route 33-Diley Road interchange, he said. “It is a little less congested than Gender Road,” Peoples said. Depending on the amount of traffic, this route may be faster at certain times of day, he said. If the ordinances become law, signs will be posted alerting motorists to the vehicle weight limits. The Dysart Corp. has been informed, Peoples said. “They said they would be on board and get the word out to their drivers and dispatchers,” he said. Franklin County would be responsible for enforcing the vehicle weight limits on Elm Street. Joe Meier, Franklin County bridge design technician, said the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office has two mobile crews that patrol roads for the Franklin County Engineer’s Office. “They have two vehicles with two deputies in each that carry portable scales,” he said. “They go out and patrol and do enforcement. They are experienced and know what to look for.” tstubbs@thisweeknews.com

Continued from page A1 rections are sending them down Waterloo to Elm Street and causing a lot of problems. “This is one time where technology makes more of a mess,” he said. “The key is to get them coming in from the other direction.” Jordan said as many as 15 trucks a day enter the Dysart property, depending on the volume of business. On some days, there are no trucks at all, he said. Twenty-five percent of the trucks coming to the business use the Elm Street entrance, he said. “To me, one is too many,” Jordan said. Peoples said the company has drivers coming from as far away as Canada. ”We are happy they are increasing their business,” he said. “There is a better way to get there.” Trucks attempting the turn from High Street to West Waterloo turn are also causing property damage, he said. Peoples said there is a better way to get back to state Route 33: Instead of turning right at

Continued from page A1 owns the private driveways. Casto doesn’t want to see a median go in but reluctantly agreed to have one installed because of traffic studies and accident histories, he said. “Their own traffic engineer recommended one there as well,” Mayor Michael Ebert said. Plans also call for a new traffic signal at the intersection of Prentiss School Drive and Winchester Boulevard. Traffic studies have indicated a traffic signal could

work there until Winchester Boulevard is extended further west, Peoples said. But that project is at least seven years out, he told the service committee. The project also adds a center left turn lane at Foxhill Drive and Gender Road that will relieve a lot of congestion for northbound traffic, Peoples said. “If you have been there at school arrival or dismissal, one person who wants to make a left turn backs everyone up,” he said. Peoples said 65 percent of the project’s cost is being covered by the OPWC grant.

A village request for a loan to cover the remaining 35 percent was not approved but Canal Winchester’s portion of the project is covered in the village budget, he said. “We will not have the major reconstruction in the CIP (capital improvement program) that we normally have,” he said. “This project is going to be very positive to both intersections.” Construction is expected to start some time in the spring, Peoples later told ThisWeek. tstubbs@thisweeknews.com

Welcoming New Patients . . .

RAILROAD Continued from page A1 Mershon asked who is responsible for fixing the issues at the crossing and if there would be anything the village would have to pay for. Peoples said the answer depends on how quickly the railway company could identify funding to fix the tracks. He said the village is working with Madison Township to identify some grants.

Grant to fund Waterloo bridge repair Continued from page A1 fice made this project happen. “The engineer’s office agreed to perform the design in-house if the township would apply for the funding and share in the cost,” he said. “This is a good example of two governments collaborating for the overall good of the communities they serve.” Although a precise age of the Waterloo Road bridge is not known, Butcher said it is estimated to be between 30 and 40 years old. The bridge is located on the southeast side of Waterloo Road, between Hill and Winchester roads. It crosses a Walnut Creek tributary. Butcher said recent traffic counts show 2,500 to 3,000 vehicles travel over the bridge each day. That’s up from approximately 1,000 vehicles per day in the late 1990s, he said.

A closer look Public works director Matt Peoples told Canal Winchester Village Council on Feb. 21 officials with the Indiana and Ohio Railway have acknowledged that there are problems with the rail road tracks but have told the village there is no money for repairs.

Increased traffic brought on by the 2004 construction of the Hill Road-Diley Road interchange has led to a recurrence of “meetings” of motorists attempting to travel both directions on what is essentially a one-lane bridge, Butcher said. Township officials have sought for sever-

al years to remedy to problem, which has led to tight squeezes for cars trying to pass in both directions over the bridge and frequent delays when trucks and other drivers take turns passing using the span. However, budget constraints have continued to delay any work until now. The OPWC grant, which the township applied for last fall, is expected to allow the project to move forward and be completed before the end of this year. The money is expected to be awarded after the state budget is finalized in July. “The bridge is being replaced because of the narrowness of it and the desire to widen it to safely accommodate two-way traffic,” Butcher said. “The project will be competitively bid within a few months.” nellis@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekNews.com

Tax Series Tuition and fees deduction WASHINGTON — You may be able to deduct qualified education expenses paid during the year for yourself, your spouse or your dependent. You cannot claim this deduction if your filing status is married filing separately, or if another person can claim an exemption for you as a dependent on his or her tax return. The qualified expenses must be for higher education. The tuition and fees deduction can reduce the amount of your income subject to tax by up to $4,000. This deduction, reported on Form 8917, Tuition and Fees Deduction, is taken as an adjustment to income. This means you can claim this deduction even if you do not itemize deductions on Schedule A (Form 1040). This deduction may be beneficial to you if, for example, you cannot take the lifetime learning credit because your income is too high. You may be able to take one of the education credits for your education expenses instead of a tuition and fees deduction. You can choose the one that will give you the lower tax. Generally, you can claim the tuition and fees deduction if all three of the following requirements are met: • You pay qualified education expenses of higher education. • You pay the education expenses for an eligible student. • The eligible student is yourself, your spouse, or your dependent for whom you claim an exemption on your tax return. You cannot claim the tuition and fees deduction if any of the following apply: •Your filing status is married filing separately. • Another person can claim an exemption for you as a dependent on his or her tax return. You cannot take the deduction even if the other person does not actually claim that exemption. • Your modified adjusted gross income (MAGI) is more than $80,000 ($160,000 if filing a joint return). • You were a nonresident alien for any part of the year and did not elect to be treated as a resident alien for tax purposes. More information on nonresident aliens can be found in Publication 519, U.S. Tax Guide for Aliens. • You or anyone else claims an education credit for expenses of the student for whom the qualified education expenses were paid. Student-activity fees and expenses for course-related books, supplies and equipment are included in qualified education expenses only if the fees and expenses must be paid to the institution as a condition of enrollment or attendance.

goods. In 1855, the company began making a combination steel plow that sold quite well and later began making railroad cars as well. In 1849, Charles Ambos and James Lennox started the Eagle Foundry with $8,000. When the business was sold in 1854, the foundry became a joint stock company under the name of the Columbus Machine Manufacturing Co. Employing more than 125 men, it provided the iron for the roof of the new Statehouse as well as all of the iron ceilings and railings in the building. And while all of this was going on, other factories were making other sorts of goods. Two men named Brotherlin and Halm began producing chairs and cabinetware by steam-powered machinery in 1853. Another company began making wooden hollowware — tubs and pails, primarily — in a factory along the river in 1856. By 1858, there were others. A local description reported that they included Ohlen and Drake’s steam-powered saw factory, Hines and Miller’s steam-powered paper mill, and Butlers’ coffee- and spice-grinding mill. And almost as an afterthought, the author noted that there were “two extensive breweries at the south end of the city.” All of these enterprises contributed importantly to the success of Columbus. In all, they employed several hundred men, many of them recent immigrants from Ireland and Germany who worked alongside recent arrivals — black and white — from rural Ohio. These new factories formed the beginnings of industry in Columbus and a pattern of industrial growth and success that has continued to the present day.

ho

were relatively small in size and employed dozens rather than hundreds of workers in a few sturdy buildings. It was no accident that most of them soon came to be located near a ready source of water — the Scioto River. The kind of products made by these early factories says something about the needs of the people of central Ohio. The oldest successful manufacturing company in Columbus was begun in 1822 by a man named Joseph Ridgway. Initially using horses to provide power to his foundry, Ridgway began to produce Jethro Wood’s Patent Plow. It was later said of Ridgway by a local writer in the 1850s that “… he made and sold an immense number. It was considered the best plow in use.” In 1830, Ridgway joined with a nephew to finance the conversion of his factory to steam power and begin the production of machinery, steam engines, cast iron stoves and other products. In 1849, the Ridgways joined with a man named Pearl Kimball in a new business making railroad cars. Joseph Ridgway died in 1850 and Kimball later operated the car company on his own. Ridgway’s foundry business passed in 1854 to another entrepreneur, Peter Hayden. Hayden had come to Columbus in the 1830s and begun a number of enterprises. He started a business making saddles and other equipment for horses, using the labor of prisoners at the nearby Ohio Penitentiary. At the same time, he opened his own foundry producing bar iron, hoop iron and wire from pig iron and scrap iron. Eventually, Hayden and his family would also invest heavily in the coal and iron fields of southeastern Ohio. In 1838, John Gill and others built Gill’s Foundry with about 25 workers on the west side of the Scioto and developed a good business making stoves and other iron

In the years before the beginning of the American Civil War in 1861, Columbus, the capital of the state of Ohio, was more than the symbolic center of state power and authority. Created by the Ohio General Assembly to be the new capital city in ED 1812, the town LENTZ had grown very slowly at first and as late as 1830, only had little more than 2,000 residents. Then the National Road and Ohio Canal reached central Ohio and by 1834, Columbus was a city of 5,000 people. But even that new and bustling city seemed to make most of its money in transportation and trade. Reading of the men who were the early successes in Columbus enterprise, one comes away with the distinct impression that the best way to earn money was to serve the Ohio General Assembly with room and board, move people and products from place to place, or meet the needs of the people who did such things. A few examples might suffice to illustrate this point. William Neil came to Columbus in 1818 and soon got into the stagecoach business. Leaving his wife to run a small tavern across from the Statehouse, Neil would eventually build an empire on wheels and become known as the “Stagecoach King.” Lincoln Goodale was a practicing physician who found that there was not a lot of demand for doctors in the new town. He eventually opened a store and made a lot of money. As a gesture of gratitude to his adopted town, he gave Columbus its first park — Goodale Park. And then there was Alfred Kelley. Representing Cleveland and then Columbus in the legislature, Kelley also found time to ensure the completion of the Ohio Canal, the reform of Ohio’s banks and the construction of more than one railroad. If we add to these examples the stories of bankers such as David Deshler and lawyers such as Orris Parish, one might conclude that Columbus was a place where people made their money providing services rather than making things. And this would be true — but only partly true. Like most capital cities across America, most of the economic history of the city is the story of a highly diversified economy with some people working in government, others in trade and still others in transportation. And composing another significant part of the workforce were people employed in manufacturing. When Columbus was an isolated frontier village, many of the goods people needed and could not make themselves were purchased from local craftsmen — the blacksmith, the gunsmith, the miller and that old frontier standby, the whisky distiller. But with the arrival of the Ohio Canal in the 1830s and railroads in the 1850s, it became possible to import raw materials such as iron and timber to a central place like Columbus and ship finished products from that place to a waiting world. It was not long before a number of people began to do just that. Most early factories in Columbus

The Beat Arts, eats and fun in central Ohio

FAB 5

Editor’s note: This show is sold out. The Chinaberry tree was, for a time, a popular, low-budget tree used for ornamental purposes, most often in the southern United States. Singer-songwriter Rodney Crowell recalled how the trees lined the housing development in the Houston neighborhood in which he grew up – a significant enough memory that he named his new book, a memoir of sorts, Chinaberry Sidewalks. “The book is not at all about Rodney Crowell the songwriter,” he said. “It’s about my childhood growing up in Houston. “It’s mostly about the arc of my parents’ marriage,” he said. “My mother and father were the son and daughter of sharecroppers, with seventh/eighth grade educations. They migrated to Houston, and lived in a housing development where a lot of that workforce lived. The place was landscaped with Chinaberry trees, which had these green berries. As kids, we used to have Chinaberry wars.” Crowell said he was deliberate in moving the content of the book away from his career as a singer and songwriter – a career that has seen him boast hit records and have his songs recorded by countless artists, including Waylon Jennings, Alan Jackson, Crystal Gayle, Heart, Keith Urban, Bob Seger, the Oak Ridge Boys, Tim McGraw and more. The book, he said, is not merely a companion piece to his records for fans. “There are stories (in the book) about music, but only as it applies as part of my environment,” Crowell added, explaining that he didn’t feel a book of stories about his career “was going to garner a readership.” “I don’t want to sound insulting to the loyalty of my fans, but I don’t think of myself as an iconic star,” Crowell said. “I was going to sustain a relationship with readers with my ability to tell stories. Crowell is hardly shelving his songwriting career. In fact, he said that working on the book both sharpened his songwriting senses and changed his understanding of songwriting.

“With the book I discovered I couldn’t slack off,” he said, further explaining that “the narrative has to be maintained. “That kind of day-in-day-out work is a sharp thing for a songwriter to do, to maintain.” His one-man tour is not your standard book tour, either. “I read excerpts from the book, I tell stories, I sing songs,” he said. “It was a lot of work on presentation and pacing.” Crowell did the audio version of the book himself, which gave him the opportunity to hear how stories and segments of stories sounded out loud. Additionally, he was able to make notes on how he would present the excerpts, both finding a balance between serious and humorous selections and also how he would weave the elements together into a live show. “I have to kind of free-form a background of a story into the different segments of the book,” he said. “Then those passages had to be extended so that the audience is given a similar taste of each song.” For more from The Beat’s interview with Rodney Crowell, read the BeatBlog at www.ThisWeekNews.com.

Local Residents in Amazement Yesterday As Collectors Provide A Stimulus Package to Grove City, Worthington & Circleville! By DAVID MORGAN STAFF WRITER ICCA will be placing ads in newspapers, radio and running television spots this 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 and worth many times their face value. Recent silver markets have driven the price up on even 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 and 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

Decker is top seed at state swim meet By AARON BLANKENSHIP ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Sam Decker of the Canal Winchester High School boys swimming and diving team wasn’t able to compete in the postseason last season because of the effects of mononucleosis. However, the junior continued his comeback at the Division II district meet on Feb. 18 at Ohio State by winning the 100-yard freestyle in 46.81 seconds ahead of DeSales’ Cooper Staton (46.89) and winning the 50 free in a district-record 20.55 ahead of Staton (20.96). With Decker leading the way, the Indians scored 132 points to finish fifth at district behind champion Granville (256). “It’s nice to finally be able to show people what I’m really made of,” Decker said. “I thought my sophomore season was going to be a breakout year for me, but a horrible case of mono put me on bed rest with a swollen spleen and a lot of other problems. I’ve been waiting a long time to show what I’m capable of.” Decker is seeded first in the 100 free and second in the 50 free behind Hunting Valley University School’s Andrew Malone (20.55) for the state meet, with the swimming events being held Thursday, Feb. 24, and Friday, Feb. 25, at the C.T. Branin Natatorium in Canton. “I want to beat my district times in both events and do as well as I can at state,” Decker said. “I’m shaved and I’ve got a brand-new suit, and I’m going to leave everything in the pool.” Senior Tyler Simonton won

Simonton, who placed seventh in the 100 back (53.07) at state a year ago, is seeded fifth in the 100 back and 15th in the 200 free for state. “Standing on the state podium was the greatest feeling and I want to experience it again,” Si-

monton said. “I started my taper for district and I’m going to do a full taper for state to try to drop my times even further. My birthday is Feb. 28 and I want to give myself an early present like I did last year.” Wyatt Meade, Decker, Si-

monton and Brandon Hutchins finished third in the 200 medley relay (1:42.76) at district behind Granville (1:41.40) and Olentangy (1:42.1) and are seeded 16th for state. The same four boys also finished seventh in the 200 free

relay (1:34.25). “I think our medley relay has a very good chance to do well at state if we all swim our best legs of the season,” Decker said. “This is the first year our team See INDIANS, page B2

Commentary

Plenty of intrigue in Division I boys district tourney Much of what made the Division I district boys basketball tournament special last year should find its way back to the Fairgrounds Coliseum over the coming weeks. There might not be a dominating presence like 2010 Northland High School graduate Jared Sullinger, and Gahanna doesn’t have a high-profile senior duo as it did a year ago with 2010 graduates Rob Brandenburg and Anthony Jackson. But those two teams — as well as possibly a half-dozen others from central Ohio — possess the ability to advance to the state tournament. Second-seeded Northland has perhaps the area’s best player in senior guard and Michigan-signee Trey Burke. Although he doesn’t have Sullinger or 2010 graduate J.D. Weatherspoon to pass the ball to, Burke has elevated his offensive game while 6foot-8 junior post players Devon Scott and Jalen Robinson have continued

to develop. Fourth-seeded Gahanna is led by a large group of seniors, including guard and Ohio University-signee Stevie Taylor, hungry to prove that last year’s stateJARROD tournament run was ULREY no fluke. And we haven’t even discussed the No. 1 seed yet. Westerville South followed a perfect regular season last year by losing in a district semifinal, but this year’s version is even better. Senior guard and Wisconsin-signee Traevon Jackson leads an attack that stifles opponents defensively. What makes this year’s district tournament intriguing is that that trio of teams doesn’t have a big advantage over the other teams seeded among the top seven.

Upper Arlington received the third seed and has one of the area’s best shooting guards in Miami University-signee Brian Sullivan. The Golden Bears jumped into the same bracket as Northland even though an entire bracket remained open, setting up a potentially thrilling district final March 11 at the Fairgrounds. South may get another shot at Marion-Franklin in a district semifinal after the Red Devils upended the Wildcats 66-57 at the same level last season. It wouldn’t be wise to bet against South coach Ed Calo if the rematch occurs. The problem for the Wildcats is that fifth-seeded Pickerington North also could be looming in a district final. The Panthers may be the ultimate workman-like team, with no standout but several players who can shoot well from 3-point range and a group of tall forwards who know how to play defense.

And all of that is not to discount eighth-seeded New Albany, which used a similar formula as North to win the OCC-Capital Division. The Eagles potentially would face the Panthers in a district semifinal. Gahanna’s bracket, meanwhile, is characterized by depth. Joining the Lions in that bracket are sixth-seeded Walnut Ridge, seventh-seeded Dublin Coffman and ninth-seeded Westerville North. Walnut Ridge is a bit of an upstart, considering it advanced to the City League championship game for the first time this season. The Scots have a pair of players who are at least 6-8, and 6-4 senior Austin Traylor has emerged as one of the area’s best forwards. Coffman and Westerville North are back among the area elite after making long tournament runs last year. The Shamrocks edged UA 50-48 in a district semifinal last year and went on to win their first district title since 2004. Among their seven seniors are

guard Christian Heine, who has been a regular since his freshman year, and guard Zack Riddle, a Watterson transfer who has become their leading scorer. Westerville North no longer has 2010 graduate Ralph Hill after being a district finalist last year, but the Warriors might have the area’s best sophomore in point guard Jack Gibbs and they’ve shown explosiveness throughout the season. The district tournament is a place where players like Gibbs shine on a bigger stage for the first time, squads that play team basketball like Pickerington North step forward, and seniors such as Burke, Jackson, Sullivan and Taylor lead their teams to new heights. What could make this one memorable is that it’s hard to predict which circumstances will come to the forefront. julrey@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com

cause they beat us handily (4320 on Jan. 22) at their place and we had lost three straight to them. We’ve improved a lot since then.” The fourth-seeded Indians had a first-round bye in the Division II district tournament and play Watterson or Linden-McKinley in the second round on Friday, Feb. 25, at Lakewood. The winner advances to a district semifinal March 3 at the Fairgrounds Coliseum. Watterson beat DeSales 6048 on Feb. 18 to improve to 713, as 6-foot-3 senior wing player Connor Geraghty scored 15 points and 6-3 senior wing player Brian Dunlay scored 14. Linden, which was 1-18 before playing Watterson in the first round Feb. 22, is led by 6-

13-team Division II sectional at Licking Heights behind Licking Valley (222.5). District qualifiers were Emmanuel Barnes (103, 2-1, second), Joe Boswell (130, 4-0, first), Nick Brady (112, 3-1, second), Royce Calloway (152, 2-2, fourth), Justin Emmons (119, 2-1, second), Brady Hutchins (125, 4-0, first), Dalton Tullius (135, 2-1, third), Max Lacey (215, 3-1, third) and Nathan Pressley (heavyweight, 2-1, second).

6 senior forward Storm Patterson, who was averaging 11 points and 10 rebounds, and 60 junior guard Demetrus Beard, who was averaging eight points. Canal Winchester beat Watterson 58-51 on Dec. 18, as Walker scored 19 points and Schriml scored 12. The Indians have not played Linden this season. “Watterson should be a tough test for us, because we beat them early in the year when they were still getting guys back from the football team,” Jones said. “We need to be patient with the ball, and take and make good shots. Defensively, we need to execute and play like we did in our first 10 games.” ablankenship@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com
