2011-12 time change

District mulling before-school activities By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers The Dublin City Schools District is working on options to help parents through the 30-minute time change coming in the fall. Superintendent David Axner announced last week that all schools would begin about 30 minutes later when the district begins the 2011-12 school year.

“The reaction has been very positive, but we’ve also got a number of concerns in regards to the alternate elementary start for a variety of reasons, mostly working parents who need to get the students on the bus and need to have some option besides paying more money for Latchkey or having a sitter come by.” Axner said. “That’s the most popular concern.” Nothing solid is in place yet, but Axner

said elementary school principals are working toward before-school activities that include expanding the district’s breakfast program, gym programs, enrichment, computer labs, keyboarding and chess clubs. The district’s Latchkey program also operates before school. “Latchkey will be an option for people, but there’s an additional 23 minutes, which computes to a higher cost

for parents if they choose to do that,” Axner said. “People on the front end of the day will pay more and people at the end of the day will pay less. What we’re trying to do for a win/win is put together enrichment programs that students could start the day off with. We’re looking at physical activities to academic enrichment.” The new times mean Dublin’s three high schools still would kick off the

school day, but at 8 a.m. rather than 7:25. The middle schools will run from 8:43 a.m. to 3:23 p.m., as opposed to the current 8:15 a.m. to 2:55 p.m. day, and elementary schools will be pushed back from a 9:05 a.m. to 3:35 p.m. day to 9:28 a.m. to 3:58 p.m. The change in times for the school day resulted from more than a year of See DISTRICT WEIGHS, page A2

Slips and falls on the deck of the leisure pool at the Dublin Community Recreation Center have prompted $97,000 in improvements. Dublin City Council approved improvements to the deck of the leisure pool Feb. 14. The work will be completed this month, said Michelle Crandall, director of administrative services. “We’ve identified a solution — the best solution for the surface material at the leisure pool,” she told council last week. The pool will be closed from Feb. 28 to March 14 for the improvements. The recreation center has received complaints about the safety of the deck around the pool and placed mats where the most slips and falls were reported. This temporarily resolved the problem. A report by consultants Moody-Nolan Inc. said most slips and falls in the area were caused by the shape and size of the tiles, glaze finish on tiles, strollers and wagons that track in oil and not enough enforcement of the no-running rule. According to Crandall, city staff found a nonSee REC CENTER’S LEISURE POOL, page A2

NCR development plan receives P&Z’s approval By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers After direction from Dublin City Council, the planning and zoning commission last week approved National Church Residences’ final development plan. During a Feb. 14 meeting, council members asked the commission to move forward on the NCR development despite concerns that included the building height and air conditioning units. The commission met on Feb. 17 and approved the plan with nine conditions in a 4-2 vote, city planner Rachel Ray said. The final development plan for the 17-acre Avondale Senior Village on Dublin’s southern border was tabled by the Dublin Planning and Zoning Commission on Feb. 3. “The commission and staff appreciate the importance of this project and council’s desire to have an affordable senior housing product available in Dublin,” the staff report stated. “Certain issues have arisen during the final development plan review that affect the economic viability of the project and See NCR DEVELOPMENT, page A6

DCVB sees rise in bed-tax yields By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The past few years may be marked by recession, but the Dublin Convention and Visitors Bureau reported improvements in 2010. Bureau executive director Scott Dring last week told council members while giving a 2010 re-

port that revenues increased last year and continue to look up in 2011. According to Dring, 2010 has been described as “less bad” by visitors bureaus around the country. In Dublin, bed-tax revenues from the city’s hotels increased by 4.5 percent over 2009 and occupancy rates increased by 8 perBonnie is up for adoption at All Tails ‘R’ Waggin in Pataskala.

District weighs options for before-school activities

February 24, 2011

Continued from page A1 research by the School Reform Task Force; the group recommended pushing the school day for high school students back by 45 minutes in November. The task force uncovered studies and best practices of other school districts that said a later start time for high school students could give them more sleep, which could result in better grades, behavior and safer drivers. The district initially looked at adjusting only the high school start/stop time, but Axner said busing was a problem. “One of the biggest barriers we went through was having buses do two routes instead of three,” he said. “If we had been able to do that, people would have been happier and we could have condensed the schedule.” The district could not manage without more buses, though. Axner said the change would not cost the district more money, and the strings program and middle school students who attend high school courses would not be affected.

The announcement of the time change has yielded comments from parents, including an online petition to stop the new elementary and middle school times. As of press time on Feb. 22, the petition had nine signatures, including some from overseas. Some concerns also have come in over the late dismissal interrupting after-school activities, but Axner said, “There’s not much we can do with the later dismissal. But for the arrival time we are putting together some information. … We’re releasing a list of possibilities we’re working on. It’s premature, but it’ll get people seeing options.” The change will be analyzed after it is put into effect. “We’ll be comparing quarter by quarter, looking at discipline changes, tardy either way, attendance levels, obviously academics. It’s hard to do that in one year, but hopefully over time we’ll see that the changes are good,” Axner said, noting that if “we need to tweak or change something, we’ll do it.”

Rec center’s leisure pool to close for improvements Continued from page A1 porous surface called Aqua-Flex that bonds directly to the surface of the tiles. Staff members visited two sites where the surface is used and found that people were “pleased,” the staff report said. “Subsequent to the installation of Aqua-Flex in the spring of 2010, no slip or fall incidents have occurred and they have been pleased with the product in terms of aesthetics and ease of care/ cleaning,” the report said. Crandall noted the product has a “slip-reducing factor, chemical resistance,” is softer, easy to clean and is made from at least 20percent recycled material. Only one company installs the

surface, which will be applied directly to the tiles around the leisure pool. The job is expected to cost the city $97,500 and includes a three-year warranty. The 2011 Capital Improvement Plan has $20,000 set aside to deal with this issue and “staff will evaluate and reprioritize budgeted projects and use existing funds to complete this project,” the staff report said. With council’s unanimous approval, the work is expected to start Feb. 28 and although Crandall initially anticipated a short closure, public information officer Megan Canavan said the pool will be closed until March 14 “to ensure we have enough time to put it over the tile.”

The Arthritis Foundation, Teen Water Fitness and Water Walking classes will not be held during the closure. The competitive pool will not get this treatment. Crandall told council members they have not seen the same problems there.

Continued from page A1 Over the past few weeks, local business owners have also talked to students about how they give back to the community. Nathan Eckhart talked about his trip to Africa and delivering 5,000 pairs of shoes through the Tom’s Shoes organization, and Melissa Hoover of Melissa Hoover Landscape Design discussed using her passion for landscaping in community gardens. Sibberson said Linda Kick of Our Cupcakery came in last week “to talk about her business and how she uses baking to make a difference with charities.” Students have been working on their own projects to make a difference for the last six weeks and according to Sibberson, they include bracelets, comic books, pillows, bookmarks, photo frames, piggy banks, key chains and magnets. “We’ve had these production days where the art room is more like an art studio,” said art teacher Drew Jones. “They come in and get to work where they’ve left off.” Once the handcrafted items are sold, Sibberson said students will donate the money to charities they chose with the help of an art project. “Earlier in the year I had students create a heart map, which is a visual representation of the heart, and things they care about (and) things they love so they’re able in incorporate writing and drawing and colors and all sorts of things to visually represent what they’re passionate about,” Jones said. “We talked about social issues they care about whether it’s the environment, people going hungry or people who are homeless. It helped them zero in on a charity or something to research.” The fourth-graders aren’t the only students who were inspired by Krouse Rosenthal’s visit, though. Jones said the other art projects are connected to the author’s books or videos. “She wrote a book called ‘Yes Day’ about a little boy and it’s his favorite day of the year because anything he asks will be a yes,” Jones said. “So I had the first-graders come up with a question they wanted a yes to and they created artwork based on that.” One girl’s yes painting revolves around dancing with a kangaroo, he said. “It really shows their innocence and imagination,” Jones said. “It was fun to unlock that.” The entire project will come to a culmination on Feb. 25, when Krouse Rosenthal visits the school. Sibberson said the children’s author is in town for the Dublin Literacy Conference on Feb. 26, so it worked out to have her visit the students. “She’ll be here all day and see all of (the students),” she said. “She’ll do three different sessions and there will be autographs at the end of the day.” This is the first time an art show has revolved around an author visit and Jones said the whole school is excited. “I feel like Amy is an author and an artist herself that is all about finding the beauty in the world and this life and trying to unlock our imaginations to explore those things,” he said.

Childish behavior GOT ? T L I encouraged in Sells play K By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Eighth-graders at Sells Middle School are looking into their past to gain inspiration for this week’s production of “How to Eat Like a Child and Other Lessons in Not Being a Grown-Up.” The eighth-grade production, based on a book by Delia Ephron, will take the stage of the 1919 Building at 144 West Bridge Street at 7 p.m. Feb. 24 and 25, and 2:30 p.m. Feb. 26. The musical gives advice on laughing hysterically, having a birthday party and torturing your sister, among other things. Eighth-grader Sydney Elkins said the biggest lesson is letting go of maturity and having a little fun. “We’re teaching adults that even when you’re an adult, you can still act like a kid,” she said. “What we teach is how to act immaturely,” said Robbie Markus. The actors in the production go by their first names on stage and said the whole thing is rather casual — and they really like wearing jeans and T-shirts on stage. “We don’t have to dress up,” Markus said. “It’s really fun,” Elkins agreed. “And we get to wear T-shirts. It’s really laid back.” But there are other reasons for students to enjoy the production. “My favorite scene is when the kids are beg-

ging their parents for a dog,” Sivan Dayan said. Markus favors a scene he takes center stage in. “My favorite scene is where I’m doing a solo on it being my birthday and it being my favorite day of the year,” he said. For Elkins, the fun is using her own personality on stage. “I like it when they tell us to be something like goofy because that’s me,” she said. Students in “How to Eat Like a Child and Other Lessons in Not Being a Grown-Up” were busy at work on President’s Day, when others had the day off. Practice ran from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Dayan said she’s happy to devote hours outside of school to the production. “I love acting,” she said. “I don’t know if I’m good at singing, but the show is really fun. And my mom was an actor. She went to school in the performing arts.” A love for acting and singing has brought Markus to theater productions since the sixth grade. “I really like to act and to sing,” he said. “I’m already involved in the choir, so this is one more thing for me to do.” Addiction draws Elkins. “I like to do plays and singing and acting yearround,” she said. “I guess I’m hooked on it.” Tickets are $3 for adults and $2 for students, and can be purchased at the door.

District, chamber to help students land summer jobs By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

More than 400 students will don ties and dress shoes early next month in the hopes of impressing potential employers. Dublin City Schools and the Dublin Chamber of Commerce will partner to present the annual Dublin Works summer job fair from 9 a.m. to noon March 5 at the Dublin Community Recreation Center, 5600 Post Road. “This is a partnership with the district and the chamber and we are hoping to have about 30 employers,” said Doug Baker, coordinator of public information for the school district. The district aims for 30 employers each year, but it has been difficult in recent years. “It’s been challenging because of the economy. Not everybody is hiring,” Baker said. “But we have a nice lineup of employers this year.” The job fair is free and open to all students of working age in the Dublin City School District. While most employers require employees to be at least 16, some take 14-year-old workers. This year’s lineup includes One Stop Bead Shop, Luxury Land-

scapes, Bruegger’s Bagels, Fort Rapids, Giant Eagle, Zoombezi Bay, Pino Gelato, Skyline, Cinemark Movies, Menchies and the Columbus Zoo. While some students can leave the job fair with a summer job, Baker said the event also offers students some interview experience. Some employers offer interviews at the job fair. “It’s a great experience for them to get to practice interview skills in a real world setting,” he said. “Some students even leave with a job for the summer.” Students are encouraged to dress appropriately for the job fair. “We do encourage students to dress professionally. Employers are looking for summer employees, and for the most part employers take that seriously. You’ll be representing their company,” Baker said. “In order to make a good impression on employers, dress professionally. If you have a resume, by all means bring it. Be prepared to have a conversation with employers, not just fill out applications.” Baker said he expects 400 to 600 students to participate in the March 5 event. “There is a steady stream of folks. On any Saturday in Dublin City Schools, there’s a

Women’s club blends style, fundraising By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers Nine members of the Dublin Women’s Philanthropic Club will strike a pose on Feb. 28. The nonprofit organization will hold its annual spring style show fundraiser at 7 p.m. Feb. 28, at Embassy Suites Dublin, 5100 Upper Metro Place. Style show chair Christine Saneholtz said this year’s models are nine members of the philanthropic club. They’ll hit three Dublin boutiques to share the latest spring fashions at the show. “Our spring fashions will come from local boutiques le Flair, Morgan House and a new consignment boutique called SOHO Fashion Exchange,” she said. “Three models will go to each store and will do fittings and (the stores will) show us what they have for spring fashions.” Any striking items seen on the runway must be purchased at the store, but they could go fast. “All three boutiques we’re featuring are one-of-a-kind boutiques,” Saneholtz said. “What you see will be the only one the store has.” The style show will also include a chance for other goodies. A gift bag raffle will be held, and for $20 those attending can choose a gift bag with an unknown gift certificate inside. Saneholtz said gift certificates include $50 gift cards to Cheesecake Factory, Macy’s and jewelry designer Silpada Designs. One gift bag will contain a $525 gift card for services at the new Woodhouse Day Spa in Historic Dublin’s BriHi Square. “Anyone who purchases a bag would win something, you just don’t know what it is,” Saneholtz said. While the event has fashion in mind, it is one of two major fundraisers held by the Dublin Women’s Philanthropic Club each year. The club also holds a holiday home show in December. “(Proceeds) go into the general philanthropy fund and mainly what comes out of the fund is area scholarships and financial need for families and women and children in need,” Saneholtz said. Tickets to the style show are $22 and include a fresh seafood bar and other appetizers. A cash bar will also be available. Saneholtz said 100 people are expected. “It’s a good, fun girl’s night out and all proceeds go to a philanthropy fund,” she said. For more information or to purchase tickets, go to Tickets can also be purchased at the Morgan House, 5300 Glick Road, or SOHO FX, 7424 Sawmill Road.

Superintendent’s column

District will continue to tweak start-time policies and options Thanks to all who have expressed support for the recently announced 2011-12 school start times. I am aware change can be difficult and has an impact on many people. The district is currently processing the feedback we are receiving and work is under way to address some concerns raised by working elementary parents. We are currently working with our elementary principals in examining several options to provide parents and students with some additional before-school opportunities in 2011-12. We are examining a variety of programming options which could start in the 8:45 -9 a.m. range and would provide working elementary parents with some flexibility on the front end of their school days. The possible options being studied include: • Expansion of the district’s breakfast program • Programs in our gymnasiums • Enrichment and remediation programs • Keyboarding • Chess Clubs • Computer labs • Offerings provided by Dublin Latchkey While we try to meet our districtwide goals of providing students with more sleep per current best practices and research, we are also mindful of individual situations and possible hardships with the new start times. Additional information will be made available as soon as some concepts are finalized. Please be assured we are working to be re-

sponsive to those who have expressed concerns. As we move through 2011-12, we DAVID will be undertaking an inAXNER depth evaluation of the new times and how they are working for our students, parents, and staff. The later start times are a result of the work of the School Reform Task Force. The task force consisted of parents, teachers, staff, students, administrators, representatives from the Dublin Educators Association, Dublin Latchkey and the district’s transportation department. The group began to meet in June 2009 and worked for 16 months. The task force spent countless hours examining the start times of our neighboring districts and districts around the country. They also spent a great deal of time examining the latest research on optimal school start times. The group concluded later start times, especially at the high school level, would be beneficial for our students. Our high-school drivers will no longer have to travel to school in the dark. The later time will help keep them safer on the roads. The same body of research indicated middle school students would also benefit from a later school start time. The research identified by the task force indicates later start times allow teens to better control their emotions, have better

peer relationships, avoid depression, lessen the likelihood of drug use, have fewer tardies and even lower suicide rates. There are also some academic benefits to later start times. The research indicates students who get more sleep perform better academically. I would like to thank the more than 5,000 parents, students and staff members who participated in community surveys on this topic during 2010. The majority of respondents, across the board, indicated later start times would improve student learning. Clearly, we are interested in doing anything we can to improve the learning environment for our students. The sequence of when each level begins remains as it is now. High school comes to school first, middle school second, then elementary, as it is now. The great majority of survey respondents did not favor an earlier start time for elementary school. I am also pleased to report we are able to undertake this change without any additional buses or bus drivers, and without putting middle school and high school students on the same buses. Extracurricular activities will not be adversely impacted by the change in start times. Additionally, the schedules of middle school students who take high school level courses, or elementary school students who travel to middle schools for strings, will not be disrupted. As always, thank you for your support of our district. David Axner is the superintendent of Dublin City Schools.

The Scioto River looking north from the Broad Street Bridge in 1889. Many of the factories built in the 1850s can still be seen along the riverfront.

lated 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 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 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 —


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 iso-

NCR development plan receives P&Z’s approval Continued from page A1 therefore, the commission and staff desire guidance from council.” The key problems for commission members on the development that will include senior apartments, cottage-style buildings, a community center and adult day care, revolve around the 42-foot height of a three-story building that will hold the adult day care and apartments. Groupings of air conditioning units around the building have also been a

bone of contention for commission members. The development text approved for the building sets the maximum height for the building at 35 feet. Planning and zoning commission members also expressed concerns over the noise and look of groupings of air-conditioning units would produce. Vice mayor Amy Salay said she appreciated the concerns of commission members, but urged balance between standards and the need for affordable

senior housing in Dublin. The Upper Arlington-based NCR is a nonprofit group that operates affordable housing for low- to moderate-income seniors and is working to stay within its budget on the project. A central air-conditioning system was scrapped for 109 individual units to save money on the project. “This is the only low-income or senior housing in our community,” John Reiner agreed. “We need this.” Marilee Chinnici-Zuercher recalled

working with NCR to bring the development to Dublin to provide housing for seniors. She said council has always been a big supporter of the development. “We welcome National Church Residences to this community,” she said. Council member Cathy Boring was the sole council member to speak against the development, saying she was disappointed with how it has progressed. “I’m not supporting this because I don’t think this was done well,” she said.

“The development text wasn’t followed.” Council members voted 6-1 to have the planning and zoning commission move forward with the final development plan and amend text to allow the 42-foot building height. Boring cast the dissenting vote. With the planning and zoning commission approval of the final development plan, Ray said the development will now start with building permits.

Dublin CVB reports increase in bed-tax revenue Continued from page A1 Aquarium over 2009. The package accounted for 1,266 room nights in Dublin and 4,276 tickets to the zoo or Zoombezi Bay. The Dublin Irish Festival accounted for almost 2,000 room nights in Dublin, an increase of 24 percent, the report said. Business travel has been hit hard by the economy, Dring said, so the DCVB has been concentrating on markets including social, military, educational, religious and fraternal.

“We secured numerous bus tours over the holidays,” he said. Things are expected to continue getting better. “We believe 2011 will be better,” Dring said. Dublin has landed the 2012 Ohio Tourism conference and is a finalist for an Evangelical Women conference as well as an Australian Football event. During next month’s Arnold Sports Festival Dublin will host the hockey tournament, which is expected to bring in 600 room nights. “We’re trying to attract visi-

tors visiting Columbus,” Dring said. The DCVB also reported landing the 2011 Alpha Eta Rho Annual Conference, which will host more than 300 members of the aviation fraternity. Dublin has previously hosted the Safety & Flight Conference

Intercollegiate Flying Championships, which helped lure the fraternity conference to the city, a release from the bureau said. Dublin will also host the college flying competition again in May; the event is expected to bring in $1.7-million and 30 teams. “This is a great example of how

securing one large event will lead to additional business in the future,” Dring said. “We work very hard to ensure that every conference and visitor has a great experience in Dublin so that they will consider our city for future business.” The DCVB is also planning

for the 2013 Presidents Cup that will be held at Muirfield Village. “We’re already marketing for the Presidents Cup in 2013,” Dring said. “Filling rooms is a high priority for the event.” For more information or a look at the 2010 DCVB report, look online at

Study finds zoo hotel would LENTZ benefit Delaware County



Continued from page A5

By SARAH SOLE ThisWeek Community Newspapers

A hotel at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium complex could raise about $315,100 in annual net tax revenue for Delaware County. That’s according to Randall Gross’ economic impact study, which he presented Feb. 17 to the county commissioners. The county had awarded an $18,900 contract to Gross to conduct a zoo hotel economic impact study. Community Development Block Grant revolving loan funds paid for the project. Gross has offices in Washington, D.C. and South Africa. According to contract specifications, Gross delivered two presentations, one focusing on the present economic impact of the zoo and the other focusing on the impact of the proposed hotel. Gross based his hotel findings on the market feasibility study conducted by David Sangree of Cleveland-based Hotel and Leisure Advisors. Gross projected that a 175-room hotel would create 223 direct and 136 induced jobs, for a total of 359 jobs. Induced figures are generated throughout the economy, or what Gross described as “the multiplier effect.” Including sales, income and bed tax, Delaware County would receive a total of about $315,100 in tax revenues. Franklin County would receive about $919,500 in tax revenues. Those figures include direct and induced amounts. If done correctly, the hotel could be an attraction in itself, Gross said. The hotel could be themed to match the zoo complex, and visitors could possibly have nighttime zoo privileges. The establishment would offer themed restaurants, retail, arcade and family entertainment and a 15,000 square-foot meeting space. Amenities including mini-golf, spa, pool and shuttle would also be available. County economic development director Gus

Comstock told ThisWeek the location and funding for the hotel are still being discussed. Delaware County wants to cooperate with Franklin County on the project, he said. “It’s kind of an exciting time as we’re coming out of this recession,” he said. Comstock said the county could partner more with the zoo. “The zoo contributes to people coming here,” Comstock said. Though the hotel would be in Liberty Township, the zoo could apply for public incentives through the county, Comstock said. Commissioner Tommy Thompson said he is enthusiastic about the project and the idea of a themed hotel. The project would be good for Franklin County and “it won’t hurt us either,” Thompson said. Jerry Borin, special projects director at the zoo, told ThisWeek the board committee in charge of the hotel evaluation could take the remainder of the year to make a recommendation to the board. “There’s no hard and fast timeline on this,” Borin said, describing the process as a lengthy one. The committee is speaking with hotel developers and operators to look into possible partnerships. The zoo would need a partner to have the hotel, he said. Additionally, Borin said the market study the zoo is using might have to be updated, since it was done in mid-2008, before the economic downturn. “It’s a different market out there now,” Borin said. In 2008 the zoo started exploring the possibility of a hotel, Borin said. Plans for an African savannah are included in the zoo’s master plan. Borin said the savannah is still in the planning stages, and estimates that it will arrive within a couple years. It was discussed that the hotel’s success would depend on the completion of the savannah.

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 steampowered saw factory, Hines and Miller’s steam-powered paper mill, and Butlers’ coffee- and spicegrinding 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.

Zoo mourns elephant Coco, the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium’s patriarch elephant, died Feb. 16. When zoo staff arrived at 7 a.m. that day, they found Coco lying down and “unable or unwilling to get up,” a news release from the zoo said. “They worked nonstop for almost eight hours in an attempt to save him, but he died just before 3 p.m.” Coco was born in the wild and believed to be 40 years old. The elephant, who fathered Bohdi in 2004 and Beco in 2009, came to the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium in 1974. “When I came to the Columbus Zoo in 1978, I was awestruck by the sight of Coco,” director emeritus Jack Hanna said in a news release. “He invoked a sense of wonder in everyone who saw him — leading them to want to know more about elephants and to care about their plight in

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. torn up the blues circuit, but would sound equally at home if rock radio should ever be is ready for a new blues diva in the Tina Turner/Bonnie Raitt mold.

“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

Get your Irish up at P.K. O’Ryan’s in Worthington Unlike several of its competitors, P.K. O’Ryan’s wasn’t built in Ireland and reassembled over here. And this tiny Irish-themed pub doesn’t feature self-consciously eccentric seating in a splashy and sprawling setting. No, P.K. O’Ryan’s is just a neighborhoody place where actual locals gather to sip, chat and sup. Maybe that’s why P.K.’s feels more like an authentic Irish pub than its built-in-Ireland, chainy brethren. Located in quaint Old Worthington, P.K.’s is the kind of place where on a lazy Sunday gentlemen have lunch with a pint and The New York Times and ladies roll in for an entree salad. On a weeknight with the Buckeyes on TV, the comfy pub — which appropriates a cozy, pilsner-colored glow for evening lighting — gets a bit more ani-

MENU by G.A. Benton mated. But just a bit, mind you. While P.K.’s is connected to a larger, more regulation restaurant, since I prefer its taverny aspect, I suggest you sit on that side (unless you’ve got the peewee basketball team in tow) — just follow the shamrocks to the pub entry. Then plop down at a semirickety (in a good way) wooden bench with a padded back or belly up to the well used wooden bar, which is the color of Guinness stout. P.K.’s food is just solid pub grub, but some of its stuff stands out. The “so wrong they’re right” Irish Nachos ($8) fit that standout category.

Irish nachos and Irish stew in a bread bowl at P.K. O’Ryan’s Restaurant and Pub.

A massive pile of just-fried, dark and crispy kettle-style potato chips arrived decorated a la reuben sandwich. Yes, shredded

bits of commendably houseroasted corned beef (though I would have liked more), sauerkraut, a decent Swiss cheese sauce and snipped scallions lent tons of salty and irresistible character to the good chips (Thousand Island was on the side for dipping). Also good — if less wild — was the homemade chili ($4). Meaty, thick and hearty, it was made with black beans and seemed about 85 percent ground beef — a righteous ratio. For a lighter starter, the house salad ($4.50) wasn’t bad. While it’s not something you’ll be thinking about long afterward, neither is it a total blowoff. Good sized and assembled with fresh romaine (no iceberg), it was sprinkled with shredded cheese, tomato, onions and boxed croutons and got a bit of distinction from

P.K. O’Ryan’s Restaurant too. My favorite was the salty Black & Bleu ($10), jacked up and Pub 666 High St., Worthington 614-781-0770 Web: Cuisine: Irish & British pub Price: $ (up to $10 per person) Patio: No Hours: 8 a.m.-11 p.m. Sunday -Thursday, 8 a.m.-midnight Friday-Saturday the sweet and salty house poppyseed feta dressing. Want more of that crave-worthy house-roasted corned beef? Of course you do, so order one of P.K.’s excellent Grilled Reubens ($10). They’re not overly greasy, are judiciously proportioned and come with extracrispy french fries. Made with Carfagna’s ground beef, the burgers are solid here

on Cajun seasonings and enriched with blue cheese. The homemade Irish Stew ($11.50) was a big standout. A huge, housemade bread bowl was loaded with a soulful, potatoheavy stew of tender pot roast, sweet onions, carrots and a thick, Guinness-sloshed beefy gravy. What’s a homemade Irish sheet cake? It’a a giant block of chocolate cake with nuts and a sweet fudgy icing ($5). In other words, what you’d call a nice Texas sheet cake when eaten in a pub that feels accommodatingly Irish. To read G.A.

Restaurant with Southwestern flair opens in Merion Village Robin Emrick is happy to say there isn’t anything quite like Coyote Jane’s in her immediate neighborhood – or beyond. The Merion Village restaurant, 1586 S. High St., is based on a simple premise: affordable, homemade Santa Fe cuisine and festive drinks in a laidback environment. Emrick, the chef and co-owner, said that while the cuisine has its roots in the artsy New Mexico capital, it melds global ingredients. “My cooking style is to mesh different flavors that nobody else would think of putting together,” she said. Yet the bill of fare, in which everything is currently priced less than $10, has been subject to vast interpretations. “It’s not Mexican,” she said. “The menu right now is a little misunderstood.” So, in short, expect the unexpected. The “Hop Sing” green chili burger, for example, uses 8 ounces of Angus beef topped with deep-fried jalapenos, sharp cheddar and green chili agave pesto on grilled brioche. The steak chili uses a splash of Jack Daniels and is touched off with a drizzle of Mexican chipotle chocolate. There are tacos, burritos (called burros) and deep-fried burritos, otherwise known as chimichangas. Many have Coyote Jane’s signature touch, such as the “poppy shrimp” tacos, filled with deep-fried buttermilk popcorn shrimp, a traditional garnish and cayenne mayo. The signature cocktail is the grilled watermelon sidecar – tequila, agave syrup, grilled watermelon and fresh mint. An untamed version of a bloody Mary offers shrimp and pickled egg. After leasing the building in March, the

restaurant had a few stutter steps because of liquor license and permitting issues. It is open dinner only until March 1, when lunch hours are introduced. Emrick said she will have an entirely new lunch menu while adding some entrees at dinner. Emrick is a partner and chef in the Banana Bean Café, which got its start in Schumacher Place and later moved to Greenlawn Avenue. Her other business associates are Angela Caskey, also part of the founding partnership of Banana Bean and Skillet, and Jane Ann Wentzel, whose name served as the inspiration for the new restaurant. The building, at the northeast corner of High and East Morrill Avenue, had been home to Craters Restaurant and Bar for about 25 years. Then, the Eagle bar had been in business for about six months before Coyote Jane’s moved in. Emrick said she liked the look of the place: wooden floors, exposed brick and a cozy dining space. She shortened the bar and added several Southwest appointments for a rustic look. The dining room seats about 30 and the bar space seats another 25. “I’ve been down here for 15 years,” she said. “I’ve seen Merion Village grow in the last 10 years. And the people want something different.” Coyote Jane’s is open five days a week, closed Sunday and Monday. For more information, call 614-444-5460. Correction: Because of a reporter’s error, the Economic and Community Development Institute was incorrectly identified in last week’s edition of Table Talk.

■ The Powell dining scene has grown dramatically in recent years. Keile Baney isn’t worried. The chef of the Liberty Tavern says he tries to stay on top of the competition by giving diners a large variety of dishes at reasonable prices. “We have a regular crowd and they’re not afraid to tell us what they Keile Baney want,” he said. Customers can get everything from grilled mahi mahi over risotto to the Tavern “stacker” – a burger crowned with barbecue pork, bacon, cheddar and onion rings. “We have a little bit of everything,” said Baney, now a contributor to Food & Wine. Baney said his real passion is smoking. Tavern patrons are treated to frequent smoked specials, including brisket, turkey and pork shoulder. A native of rural Erie, Penn., Baney is a 12-year veteran of the restaurant industry, working in Pennsylvania, Michigan and locally at such places as Hyde Park.

Scouting news



Dublin’s Cather earns Eagle Scout Brandon Alexander Cather, son of James and Sue Cather of Dublin, received the Eagle Scout award during recent ceremonies at the Northwest Presbyterian Brandon Cather Church. Cather is an eight-year member of Boy Scout Troop 117 chartered to St. Brigid of Kildare Catholic Church. He is also an Ordeal member of the Tecumseh Lodge of the Order of the Arrow, Honorary Campers Society. Prior to joining Troop 117, Cather was a member of Cub Scout Pack 116, chartered to the Bailey Elementary School PTO, where he earned the highest award of Cub Scouting, the Arrow of Light. To receive the highest award of scouting, the Eagle Scout award, he completed 21 merit badges, attended seven weeklong summer camps, numerous weekend outings and two 10day treks through the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of the Philmont Scout Ranch near Cimarron, N.M., completed a week-long kayaking trek from the Pamlico Sea Base on the North Carolina Outer Banks and completed an Eagle Scout project. For his project, he planned, designed and completed the construction of several benches for the Northwest Presbyterian Church. In total, he and 17 others donated nearly 185 hours to complete the project. Cather is a 2010 graduate of Dublin Coffman High School and is currently a freshman at Columbus State Community College. He is a member of the Northwest Presbyterian Church, where he has been active in the Northwest Presbyterian Church’s Youth Group and with them he journeyed to Alabama to assist in their Aid Mission of Hurricane Katrina.

According to a recent Associated Pres-CNBC poll of investors, 61 percent of those surveyed indicated that recent stock market volatility has made them reticent about buying and selling individual stocks; 55 percent felt that the stock market was fair only to some investors. If you are among those who feel overwhelmed and outmatched as a stock investor, it may be time to adjust. While conventional wisdom holds that investors should carry a percentage of stocks in their portfolio equal to 100 minus their age, that formula seems outdated to some. We all have personal circumstances that may not lend themselves to a generality. A financial planner may help you tailor your investments to your situation and goals. Just because the economic climate appears questionable doesn’t mean that you should stop trying to save for your retirement.

Gill focused on state after winning district By FRANK DiRENNA ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Dublin Coffman High School swimmer Nichole Gill has a basic philosophy when explaining her success in the pool. “I always visualize that I’m going to win and I don’t have any negative thoughts because I know if you have negative thoughts before you race you’re typically not going to win,” said the junior, who defended her district title in the 100-yard breaststroke at the Division I district meet on Feb. 19 at Ohio State. “I know I’ve

been training hard all season, so I thought I should deserve to win it if I try hard enough.” Gill is seeded sixth in the state (1 minute, 4.98 seconds) in the 100 breast, and will look to improve on last season’s third-place effort at state, which began Feb. 23 and runs through Saturday, Feb. 25 at C.T. Branin Natatorium in Canton. Gill will compete in the 200 individual medley after finishing fourth (2:08.1) at district. Gill, who finished 10th (2:08.8) last season at state, is seeded 17th. A busy Gill also will compete in the

400 freestyle and 200 medley relays. Zoe Spornhauer, Cara Demyan, Katie Kaffenbarger and Gill placed third (1:48.42) in the 200 medley relay at district; and Monica Welcker, Kaffenbarger and Demyan will join Gill on the 400 free relay after finishing fifth (3:39.04) at district. Steffi Zepp, Kaffenbarger, Demyan and Welcker will compete in the 200 free relay after finishing fifth (1:40.57) at district. The girls team was fifth (165) behind first-place Upper Arlington (505).

Junior Orion Martin and senior Tim O’Brien will lead the boys team at state. Martin is seeded 17th in the 100 free after finishing third (47.59) at district, and O’Brien is 19th in the 200 IM after placing fifth (1:57.75). Martin and O’Brien will join seniors Srikanth Gowda and Daniel Flower on the 200 medley relay, which finished third (1:38.09) at district and is seeded eighth at state. The boys team finished fifth (140) behind first-place UA (432). “For the most part, I’m happy,” coach

Steven VonSchriltz said. “You’re always hoping for a couple better swims here and there, but I thought we did pretty well.” •Junior Jake Moore will lead the Jerome boys team at state, as he qualified in the 50 and 100 free. Moore is seeded 12th (21.6) in the 50 free after finishing third at district; and is 19th in the 100 free after placing fourth (47.64). “I want to at least get in the top 16 in See SWIMMING, page C2


Jerome sends seven to district By SCOTT GERFEN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

By Andrea Kjerrumgaard/ThisWeek

Coffman’s Zack Riddle (right) drives past Upper Arlington’s Carter Smith on Feb. 18 during their OCC-Central Division game. The Shamrocks won 55-49 in overtime to earn a share of the league title with the Golden Bears.


Coffman boys enjoy beating UA By THAD PLUMLEY ThisWeek Community Newspapers To say the atmosphere was electric for the Dublin Coffman High School boys basketball team’s OCC-Central Division game Feb. 18 at Upper Arlington might be an understatement. The gymnasium was sold out about three hours before the opening tip and hundreds of other tickets were sold to watch a broadcast of the game on a large screen in an auditorium across the hallway. Even the Golden Bears’ student sec-

tion was standing and waving towels during the junior varsity game in anticipation of the varsity contest. It’s unlikely that the Shamrocks will forget the game anytime soon, especially given the fact that they won 55-49 in overtime to earn a share of the OCC-Central championship. “This was a great experience,” said coach Jamey Collins, whose team finished 13-1 in the OCC-Central, tying UA for the title. “I love that our guys got to experience something like this. This is what you picture when you think of high school

basketball.” Coffman, which improved to 16-3, handed Upper Arlington its first loss of the season and ended the Bears’ 38-game regular-season winning streak. The Shamrocks had lost to UA 53-52 on Jan. 14 in the first round of league play. “This was great,” said guard Christian Heine, who led the Shamrocks with 20 points. “The last two years, the UA game more than any other game has had great atmospheres. They’re the loudest games I’ve played in.” The Shamrocks led much of the game,

including 32-24 at halftime. When guard Matt DiThomas scored on a spin-move layup with 6 minutes, 50 seconds to play in the third quarter, Coffman held its largest lead of the contest at 36-24. However, UA promptly went on an 112 run to cut its deficit to 38-35 and kept working until the game was tied at 43 with 3:58 to play. The game went back and forth for the remainder of regulation. Coffman had a chance for the victory in the closing secSee COFFMAN, page C2

The Celtics also beat Feb. 26 at the Dispatch Ice Haus. Moeller 9-1 on Dec. 4.

Sycamore upset sixth-seeded Centerville 5-1 on Feb. 19 to improve to 11-18-1, as senior forward Jeffrey Wolkoff scored three goals and junior forward Michael Bond and sophomore forward Corey Kandil each added one goal. Season leaders the Aviators in goals are Wolkoff (50), Bond (24) and Kandil (20). Murphy said his team has to do a better job of finishing its scoring chances after missing on several opportunities against Coffman. The Celtics bounced back from the loss to the Shamrocks with a prolific scoring effort against Watterson, as Alex Cathis scored three goals. Jake Howell and Chase Compton each scored two goals, and Casey Worth, Jake Burns, James Eastep and John Henry Fischer each added one.

Casey Nicholson of the Dublin Jerome High School wrestling team isn’t used to having much company in the practice room during the week leading up to the Division I district tournament. Twice during his prep career, the four-time district qualifier was the Celtics’ only competitor at district. But this season, he’ll be joined by six teammates at the tournament on Friday, Feb. 25, and Saturday, Feb. 26, at Hilliard Darby, marking the most district qualifiers in program history. “It certainly makes for a more eventful practice,” said Nicholson, who won the sectional championship Feb. 19 at Westland at 130 pounds to improve to 31-4. “We had a lot of confidence coming into the sectional and guys really stepped up.” Senior Brad Myers won the sectional title at 171 to improve to 32-4 and will be making his second trip to district. The top four in each weight class at sectional qualified for district. Jerome scored 143 points at sectional to finish third of 13 teams behind Lancaster (180) and Westerville North (145). “We made sure our guys got a lot of quality matches leading up to the tournament and it really paid off this year,” coach Adam Huddle said. “We even had four or five guys avenge losses that they had earlier and that really shows we’re getting better at the end of the year.” Sophomore Bennett Comfort lost to Central Crossing’s Joe Householder 7-5 in the first round at 112, but defeated him 3-0 to advance to the third-place match and secure a district berth. Comfort placed third at sectional to improve to 22-8. Senior Juven Lopez (145, 229) and sophomore Brent Mowery (215, 21-15) each avenged a loss to an opponent during the regular season on their way to placing second and third, respectively, at sectional. Also qualifying for district were juniors Jack Austin (140, 35-14) and Kyle Harness (152, 25-13). Both placed fourth. The top four in each weight class at district advance to the state tournament March 3-5 at Ohio State. •Nine Coffman wrestlers qualified for district as the Shamrocks placed second (187) of 13 teams at the sectional Feb. 19 at Pickerington North behind Olentangy Liberty (239.5). Among the qualifiers were senior Ryan Murdock (112, 38-2) and junior Chris Mullucey (103, 34-6), each of whom won a sectional title. Murdock is a fourtime district qualifier who placed fifth at state last year at 103.

Jerome girls look to shut down Davidson By SCOTT HENNEN ThisWeek Community Newspapers The Dublin Jerome High School girls basketball team used stifling defense to earn a 40-33 win over New Albany in the opening round of the Division I district tournament on Feb. 19 at Olentangy. But coach Matt Martin will need his Celtics to be even more aggressive when they play 12th-seeded Hilliard Davidson in a second-round game at 8 p.m. Friday, Feb. 25, at Olentangy. “(Davidson is) good, but we have a chance to win if we play defense,” said Martin, whose team is 12-8 overall. “We can (win) just about any game if we play defense.” Davidson improved to 15-6 by defeating Groveport 50-33 in the opening round Feb. 19 at Olentangy for its ninth win in 10 games. Junior Katie Dymek, a 5-foot-10 guard/forward, led the Wildcats with 13 points and sophomore

guard/forward Maddison Blackwell (61) had 11 points. Junior guard Madie Long (5-7) had eight points and sophomore guard Lauren Bates (5-10) added six points. Long averaged a team-high 9.9 points through 20 games, followed by Bates (9.5), Blackwell (6.4), Dymek (6.2) and 5-9 senior guard/forward Sam Bradway (5.7). “Davidson will be one of the more athletic teams we have seen all season,” said Martin, whose team has not played the Wildcats the past two seasons. “They have six, seven, eight girls they run in there and they are all athletic.” The winner plays top-seeded Reynoldsburg or Columbus West in a district semifinal at 6 p.m. Wednesday, March 2, at Olentangy Liberty. The Celtics have not played either team this season. Reynoldsburg, which was ranked fifth in the final state poll, improved to 20-1 by beating Chillicothe 94-5 on Feb. 19.

West finished the regular season at 019. The district final will be at 7 p.m. March 5 at Liberty against sixth-seeded Brookhaven, Pickerington Central, fourthseeded Watterson or Westerville South. The Celtics led 14-7 after one quarter against New Albany, but only 17-15 at halftime. Kaitlyn Miller scored eight of her 11 points in the fourth quarter to lead Jerome. “Kaitlyn came on in the fourth quarter with eight points,” Martin said. “That’s what you expect a leader to do.” Brooke Carrel also scored 11 points with three 3-pointers. Sarah Auker and Lindsay Rieland had six points apiece and Katherine McCoy added five points. “When I can hit some 3s, it opens things up for us,” Carrel said. “It opens up the middle because Kaitlyn Miller and Katherine McCoy are so good at driving the lane.” Speaking of good, the OCC-Cardinal

Kasper, who finished 17th (248.2) last season at state, is seeded ninth. The boys team finished eighth (122). Freshman Morgan Quesnel has been a solid performer all season for the girls team and earned state berths in the 100 free and 100 butterfly. Quesnel is seeded 10th in the 100 fly after placing fourth (57.36) at district and 19th in the 100 free after finishing seventh (53.02). Freshman diver Maggie Heller had an impressive district, finishing second (408.9) to Olentangy Liberty junior Alexandra Clay (448.20) and is seeded 12th at state. “All my hard work that I put in this year showed (Feb. 19),” Heller said. “I did my best.

Ian Flinders had three assists. “It was only 1-0 after the first period, but then we picked it up, and the puck didn’t leave our zone for most of the game,” O’Brien said.

Northland, ranked ninth in the final state poll, was 18-1 before playing Marysville in the second round Feb. 23. The Vikings’only setback came Feb. 12 when they lost to Africentric 60-52 in the City League championship. “Northland is a very good team,” coach Bryan Patton said. “They’re athletic and have nice players who can do things that can cause problems. It would be a great challenge for us. We’ve played teams that play that style before and we’d have to make the game be at our style and our pace.”

onds of the fourth quarter, but Heine’s runner in the lane bounced off the rim. The Shamrocks ratcheted up their defense more in the overtime, forcing the Bears into an 0for-8 showing in the extra period. The winning points were scored by guard Jason Hall, who tipped in a miss by DiThomas with 1:40 to play to put Coffman ahead 51-49. “We’ve been working hard on our defense in practice,” said guard Zack Riddle, who scored 14 points. “Coach has wanted us to force the tempo more and get more turnovers. They have a lot of great players, but we wanted to slow them down.” The victory gave Coffman momentum as it headed into the Division I district tournament, where the seventh-seeded Shamrocks played Logan in the first round on Feb. 22. The winner plays St. Charles or Whetstone in the second round at 8 p.m. Friday, Feb. 25, at Hamilton Township. The second-round winner advances to a district semifinal, where it would play sixth-seeded Walnut Ridge, Grove City or Dresden Tri-Valley on March 5 at the Fairgrounds Coliseum. Walnut Ridge defeated Coffman 5148 on Jan. 22. “Having an experience like this helps going into the tournament,” Heine said. “This gives us a lot of momentum and a lot of confidence. We expect to have a good tournament run.” •The girls team played Westerville North in the second round of the Division I district tournament on Feb. 23 after opening with a 51-36 win over Lancaster on Feb. 16 to improve to 156.

at 4:15 p.m. March 5 in the Fairgrounds Coliseum. The Celtics finished the regular season at 7-13 overall after falling to Westerville Central 57-55 in overtime on Feb. 18. Nick Neale scored 12 points, Cam Wilson scored 10 points, Garrett Couche had nine points on three 3-pointers and Ben Nesdore had nine points. Jerome tied Scioto for fifth in the OCCCardinal at 4-10. Westerville South won the title at 13-1, with Liberty, Westerville Central and Westerville North tied for second at 10-4. Olentangy was seventh at 3-11 and Marysville was eighth at 212. The Celtics beat Watterson 46-35 on Feb. 15. Couche scored 11 points with three 3-pointers and both Michael Martin and Donovan Wilson had eight points apiece.

We thought we’d stack up a little better, but we didn’t.” •Sophomore Liz Harty will be Scioto’s lone representative at state. Harty missed practice time during the week as she battled the flu and a migraine headache. Although she hoped for a better finish, Harty earned an at-large berth in the 100 fly after finishing fifth (57.77) at district. She is seeded 15th at state. Harty did not earn a state berth in her other specialty event, the 100 free, after finishing eighth (54.04) at district. “I was sick for a week and made a trip to the hospital,” Harty said. “I hope to come back from where I was and hopefully do a quicker swim and hope to get to finals at state. My coaches are proud of me for what I’ve done here.” Last season at state, Harty finished fifth in the 100 free (52.53) and eighth in the 100 fly (57.45). The boys team finished 13th (64) and the girls were 17th (25). “There were things out of our control,” coach Joe Cahill said. “There were illnesses and I think we tapered better for our sectional versus district. I guess we will change some things up next year.”

In the third quarter, Dublin Scioto High School girls basketball coach Matt Fisher heard one of his players put the first-round Division I district tournament game into perspective. “Someone said we weren’t sure what to expect,” Fisher said. The 57-45 victory over Dresden Tri-Valley on Feb. 17 marked the first postseason experience for every Irish player but senior guard Kelly Flood. “Just getting one under our belt was important,” said Fisher, whose team plays 10th-seeded Logan in a second-round game on Thursday, Feb. 24, at Westerville Central. “You could tell we slowly became more comfortable as the game went on.” Logan, which shared the Southeastern Ohio Athletic Conference championship, had a firstround bye. The winner plays third-seeded Olentangy Orange or Central Crossing in a district semifinal on Tuesday, March 1, at Olentangy Liberty. Scioto ended last season with a second-round loss to Pickerington Central. It was the first time since 2004 that the Irish failed to reach a district semifinal. The Irish, 15-6 overall, take a six-game winning streak into the matchup with Logan. “I think we have that ‘refuse to lose’mentality right now,” said Flood, who along with Emily Jones scored 16 points against Tri-Valley. “We’re playing real-

press and we like to be pressed.” •The boys team entered its Feb. 23 Division I tournament game against Teays Valley on a twogame winning streak. The Irish defeated Marysville 53-30 on Feb. 18 and Hilliard Bradley 6648 on Feb. 15. It was the first time Scioto had won back-to-back games since starting the season 2-0. “Hilliard Bradley was a hot team when we played them,” said coach Tony Bisutti, whose team was 8-12 overall before its tournament opener. “They had won six out of eight, and we kind of dominated that game. We’re shooting it well right now. We’re shooting better than 45 percent from 3-point range and when you do that everything else looks better.” Against Marysville, the Irish jumped out to a 16-0 lead. Senior Raneal Ewing scored 22 points. Scioto finished 4-10 in the OCC-Cardinal Division, tied with Dublin Jerome for fifth behind champion Westerville South (131). Westerville North, Westerville Central and Olentangy Liberty tied for second at 10-4. Olentangy (3-11) was seventh and Marysville (2-12) was eighth. A win over Teays Valley would send Scioto to a second-round game against fifth-seeded Pickerington North or Central Crossing on Saturday, Feb. 26, at Heath. North finished the regular season 19-1 overall. The Panthers shared the OCC-Ohio title with Gahanna at 13-1.

The Irish led by as many as 20 in the fourth. Scioto likely will need a similar offensive effort against Logan, although its defense has been holding opponents to about 40 points per game. “They have a couple of players who shoot it well and if they don’t kill us we’ll be in the ballgame,” Fisher said. “We just can’t let them blow up. I think we’re faster than they are. They like to

Hartley boys capture sectional championship By FRANK DiRENNA ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Hartley High School boys bowling team will look to build on the first sectional title in program history when it competes in the district tournament on Saturday, Feb. 26, at HP Lanes. The top three teams and top three individuals not on a qualifying team advance to the state tournament, which will be at Wayne Webb’s Columbus Bowl. The boys will compete March 5 and the girls will compete March 4. Hartley won the sectional championship on Feb. 18 at Eastland Lanes with a score of 4,231, ahead of runnerup Westerville South (4,174). Also qualifying for district from the sectional were Groveport (4,052), Brookhaven (3,996), Whitehall (3,830) and Granville (3,751). The top six teams and top six individuals not on a qualifying team from each of the three sectionals advanced to district. “We’ve been bowling pretty good all year, so I was pretty confident,” Hartley coach Dennis Backus said. “I told the guys that they are ready to take it to the next level. We’ve always been just good enough to get to the next round, but I told them I want to win this sectional. I told them they were ready to do it.”

Senior Nick Owens led Hartley with a 681 series and sophomore William Ball had a 586. Hartley won the Central Ohio High School Bowling Conference-Central Division at 13-0 and finished the regular season 16-0 overall. Last season, the Hawks reached the state tournament, finishing 12th behind champion Springfield Kenton Ridge. “It would be great,” Backus said of the possibility of earning another state berth. “It would mean a lot to the school.” Qualifying individually for district from the Eastland sectional were Northland’s Trent Ranson (632), Buckeye Valley’s Michael Davenport (610), Worthington Christian’s Ben Smith (593), Teays Valley’s Nick Evans (585), Delaware’s Ray Getz (584) and Independence’s Lamont Venable (582). At the sectional at Wayne Webb’s, Jonathan Alder (4,056) finished first, with Circleville (3,922), Big Walnut (3,881), Westerville Central (3,834), Gahanna (3,759) and Hilliard Bradley (3,719) also advancing to district. Qualifying individually for district were Walnut Ridge’s Wayne Russell (648), Pickerington North’s Brittany Beeghley (632), Newark’s Jon Sears (612), Chillicothe Unioto’s Dallas John-

son (612), Walnut Ridge’s Brandon Dye (585) and Hilliard Davidson’s Jacob Costin (582). Beeghley is competing with boys because North does not have a girls team. At the Tiki Lanes sectional, Utica (4,013) finished first, with Zanesville Maysville (3,992), Zanesville (3,866), Mount Gilead (3,808), Lancaster (3,695) and Marion Elgin (3,640) also advancing. The individual qualifiers were Williamsport Westfall’s Anthony Martin (656), Gilead Christian’s Jason Zeigler (643), Logan’s Alex Erb (615), Chillicothe Huntington’s Anthony Broughton (611), Worthington Kilbourne’s Cort Wilson (608) and Watterson’s Clark Sabula (602). •While the Westerville Central girls team successfully defended its sectional title at Wayne Webb’s, Briggs was celebrating its first district berth in its three-year history. The Warhawks won the sectional with a score of 3,574, followed by Olentangy Liberty (3,243), Gahanna (3,232), Cardington (3,132), Groveport (2,979) and Briggs (2,903). Central, which finished second to Youngstown Boardman at state last season after losing 3-1 in the best-of-five final, has its sights set on putting together another successful postseason.

“The regular season is all about getting ready for the postseason, because this is where you get everything you worked for,” Central coach Julie Wells said. “I think this team is ready. It’s hard work out there, but we still came in first and by a significant number. The conditions were that you’re not going to score a lot, but you just have to score more than everybody that’s here.” Liberty coach Linda Ridolfo also hopes for a strong postseason, as the Patriots seek their first state tournament berth. “The goal was to get out of the sectional,” Ridolfo said. “Westerville Central is an excellent team. You obviously want to bowl with the better bowlers.” Briggs went 8-3 in the COHSBCSouth and 10-6 overall in the regular season. “We have a good group of girls and they’re young,” Bruins coach Mario Jackson said. “There isn’t a senior on the team and we’re trying to build the program to go further each year. We’re getting a head start on it this year.” Qualifying individually for the sectional were Thomas Worthington’s Maggie Taylor (511), Olentangy Orange’s Rachel Bartram (499), Circleville’s Macie Sawyer (475), Orange’s Kaitlin Milburn (466), Bradley’s Alicia Wolfe (455) and Watterson’s Alexa

Gainer (451). At the Eastland sectional, Westerville South finished first (3,531), with Buckeye Valley (3,486), Whitehall (3,373), Delaware (3,194), Newark (3,177) and Sparta Highland (3,135) also advancing. “We figured coming in that we would be one of the top six,” South coach Jamie West said. “Our goal was to get to the next level, and they bowled pretty well.” Qualifying individually from the sectional were Chillicothe’s Summer Finley (584), Ready’s Allison Lichwa (583), Northland’s Bradishia Foster (516), Pickerington Central’s Sarah Grim (492), Brookhaven’s Maddison Morris (470) and Beechcroft’s Nellie Jones (464). At the Tiki Lanes sectional, Zanesville (3,559) was first, with New Lexington (3,460), Maysville (3,454), Mount Gilead (3,434), Fisher Catholic (3,416) and Elgin (3,273) also advancing. The individual qualifiers were Jonathan Alder’s Ashley Thomas (543), Chillicothe Zane Trace’s Sarah Endres (532), Logan’s Christi Castle (523), Logan Elm’s Tiffanie Harmon (508), Utica’s Jenny Bricker (499) and Westerville North’s Megan Patterson (491).

Intrigue abounds in boys Division I 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 Michigansignee 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 6-foot-8 junior post players Devon Scott and Jalen Robinson have continued to develop.

Fourthseeded Gahanna is led by a large group of seniors, including guard and Ohio University-signee JARROD Stevie Taylor, ULREY hungry to prove that last year’s state-tournament run was 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 OCCCapital 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 5048 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 circum-stances will come to the forefront.

WRESTLING Continued from page C1

second district appearance after winning a sectional championship at Westland. King is one of five district qualifiers for the Irish, who finished seventh (110) at sectional. “The district tournament is so much about draws and who’s hot right now,” coach Scott King said. “We’ve got kids who are peaking at the right time.” Also qualifying for district were senior Gabe Shirkey (171, 15-8), junior Ian Richeson (119, 21-17) and sophomores Yoshi Akutsu (heavyweight, 1714) and Anthony Trocchio (130, 16-15). Shirkey placed third at sectional and Akutsu, Richeson and Trocchio each finished fourth. Richeson was a district qualifier as a freshman.

mengau (160, 13-6) and Ryan Steiner (189, 24-7). Juniors Jake Cline (135, 2212), Tyler McCourt (145, 28-9) and Joe Schulz (125, 24-10) also advanced to district. McCourt and Schultz placed third and Cline finished fourth. Coach Bob Stoll was most surprised by the performance turned in by Armengau, who wasn’t a full-time varsity wrestler during the regular season. “We made some lineup shifts and 160 opened up,” Stoll said. “(Armengau) pinned his first two guys to reach the semifinals. He’d wrestled a little bit in middle school, but didn’t come out as a freshman. Last year, he broke his hand.” •Scioto junior Wesley King (215, 34-9) will be making his
