It was billed as a “listening session” and a discussion with constituents, but Congressman Steve Stivers did most of the talking during a question-and-answer session with the public last week at the Safety Services Building. Stivers, representing Ohio’s 15th district, gave an overview of his first few weeks in Washington, D.C., and fielded the audience’s questions for an hour on Feb. 22. “There are two things I think we need to focus on in Congress right now,” Stivers said. “One, making a better business environment so business can create jobs; and two, reducing the size and scope of government so we don’t burden our kids with a By Lorrie Cecil/ThisWeek crushing debt.” There are two budgets to deal U.S. Congressman Steve Stivers talks about a wide range of topics with currently, Stivers said – the with ThisWeek Community Newspapers reporters and editors on 2011 budget for now until Sept.

goes into effect Oct. 1. The 2010 budget was $3.5-trillion, Stivers said, with two-thirds going to mandatory spending such as interest on the national debt, Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security, and a third going to discretionary spending like the defense budget. Stivers said we’re on an “unsustainable path” because spending went way up with the $821billion Obama stimulus package. “We just spent a lot of money we didn’t have, and for the first time, the deficit went above a trillion dollars. On annual basis, we’re spending a trillion dollars we don’t have.” Among other things, Stivers said he has voluntarily reduced his salary by five percent (which will go to lower the national debt) and voted to cut government spending by $100-billion through See STIVERS, page A2

Stivers to constituents: We’re on an ‘unsustainable path’ Continued from page A1 the next seven months. Stivers, who said he is currently sleeping in his congressional office to get more work done, has also tackled the 1099 provision of the health care bill. He is one of the 218 cosponsors of a bill repealing the 1099 provision. “I’ve heard from small business people throughout this district, including right here in Hilliard,” Stivers said. “Kathy Iven from Fabric Farms told me (the 1099 is) going to increase her burden – I told your story on the floor of the House the day we considered repeal of the health care bill. I think we will be able to repeal that, and the President said he’ll sign that part of the repeal. Now I wish he were that way on some other things we want to send him, but we’ll keep working together.” Iven, who was in the audience, said of Stivers after the meeting, “I really do think he’s listening. I’m real excited about having someone who’s going to listen because Mary Jo (Kilroy) didn’t listen.” Republican Stivers, 45, defeated Democrat Mary Jo Kilroy last fall, after losing to her in the previous election. A graduate of Ohio State University, Stivers previously represented the 16th district

in the Ohio Senate. He is a Lieutenant Colonel in the Ohio National Guard and was a battalion commander during Operation Iraqi Freedom, earning a Bronze Star. Stivers also worked for Bank One, the Franklin County Republican Party and the Ohio Company. He lives in Columbus with his wife and daughter. One of the last questions Stivers answered was from a high school senior who wanted to promote conservative values and free market principles among her peers. “We’ve got to always stand up for our beliefs,” Stivers said. “People won’t always agree with you, but be respectful and try to educate them because we need informed voters. I’d love for government to be able to do everything, but we can only do what we have the resources to do, and it’s not fair to borrow from you and my daughter to live at a certain level today. “The other thing I’ll tell you is after you’ve paid taxes for a few years, it changes your perspective a little bit. It’s great to be for a lot of things when you don’t have to figure out how to pay for them.” Also during the session, Stivers said he wanted to lower taxes, take an “allof-the-above approach” to energy (including nuclear power and offshore

Congressman to open Hilliard office By GARY BUDZAK ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Congressman Steve Stivers is opening a new district office across the street from Hilliard City Hall in the old police department building. Stivers and his staff of eight will lease the building at 3790 Municipal Way from the city. The building has been empty since HPD moved to the new Safety Services Building on Northwest Parkway in 2009. There had been talk of razing the old police building. The 4,285 square feet of office space for Stivers’ office will be located in the newest section of the former police building. The Republican congressman and his staff currently have a district office at 1299 Olentangy River Rd., but that lease will expire in early April. By moving to Hilliard, Stivers is in a more central area for his constituents in Ohio’s 15th Congressional District. The district consists of Union and Madison counties, as well as the downtown and western portions of Columbus, and the cities of Hilliard, Grandview Heights, Grove City, London, Marysville, Plain City and Upper Arlington. “The office move will truly be a win-win for the con-

stituents of the 15th Congressional District and the city of Hilliard,” Stivers said. “I look forward to visiting with local constituents in the new office and my staff also stands ready to serve in the new Hilliard office.” “I am delighted that Congressman Stivers has decided to locate his district office in Hilliard,” Mayor Don Schonhardt said. “Over the years, Hilliard has proven to be a friend of Congressman Stivers, and he has certainly been a good friend to Hilliard. We welcome him and his staff to the city.” The announcement was made Feb. 28, and the matter was brought up at that night’s Finance and Administration Committee meeting. An ordinance authorizing the lease was forwarded to city council with a positive recommendation, and had its first reading at the Feb. 28 city council meeting. The ordinance is expected to be approved by emergency passage at the March 14 Council meeting in order to expedite the move prior to the lease expiration. “I look forward to moving the district office to Hilliard and I thank the mayor and city council for their extra effort to make it possible to move locations,” Stivers said. The lease will run from April 3, 2011 until January 2, 2013. Stivers will pay the city $2,162.76 per month for the space.

CITY COUNCIL Continued from page A1 Since 2004, Hilliard has received $924,000 in CDBG grants from the county. These have been used to redevelop Old Hilliard. The night began with the finance and administration committee forwarding a number of bond ordinances on to council, where they received their first of three readings. The bonds would cover street improvements ($5,245,000); large trucks and backhoe ($170,000); light trucks and police vehicles ($240,000); computer hardware and software ($160,000); building improvements ($60,000); recreation and parks improvements ($1,865,000); sanitary sewer improvements ($205,000); storm sewer improvements ($245,000); and police department safety equipment ($30,000). Next, a committee of the whole council met to interview candidates for the Economic Development Council and the Board of Zoning Appeals. Council President Brett Sciotto said the interviews were part of an initiative to let the public know about openings on boards and commissions. Council held 10-minute interviews with eight candidates, asking if they could make the time commitment to serve, and what they could offer to the post. Current BZA members Charles Boshane and

Frank Moeller sought reappointment, and former councilwoman Dana Peacock sought appointment to the BZA. Local business people Kelly Darrow, Brett Febus, Buddy Karvois, Todd Lewandoski and economist William Henderson sought appointment to the EDC. At the city council meeting, council unanimously approved: • Establishing an environmental sustainability commission; • Purchasing fuels through the Franklin County Cooperative Purchasing Program; • Agreements with Germain Ford and Hilliard Farm and Fleet for parts and services for the city’s fleet of vehicles; • Increases in contract funding and appropriation cases for the Triangle Project; • Receiving $650,000 in Franklin County Motor Vehicle Permissive Tax funds to be used to realign Roberts Rd.; • Accepting easements in connection with the Anderson Meadows Planned Unit Development; • Accepting a conservation easement along the west side of Alton Darby Creek Road and north of Roberts Rd. in connection with the Hamilton Ditch; • Sponsorship of the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission’s State of the Region Luncheon in April.

Commentary & opinion

“We never felt right about funerals and viewing... The Cremation Society was the right choice for us.” Some people choose cremation because it’s a simpler, inexpensive alternative to burial. Others choose it because it’s more consistent with their beliefs. Whatever your reason, we’re the place to start. We’ll provide you with everything you need to know.

As it were

U.S. Army in 1908 was more ‘exclusive’ than one might think By the fall of 1908, the United States had not been at war for several years. And with the successful conclusion of the Spanish-American War and the Philippine Insurrection, America would not be involved in another major conflict until the outbreak of World War I in 1917. But that did not mean that the military could not use a few more good people from time to time. To that end, signs were seen in public places around Columbus that simply said “WANTED — Able-Bodied Men for the U. S. Army.” A young man wishing to become part of that army was directed to what was then the second-largest Army recruiting station in the United States: Columbus Barracks on the northeast side of downtown Columbus. Originally opened in 1861 as the Columbus Arsenal at the outbreak of the Civil War, the facility was used a storage and distribution facility until 1875, when it became a recruiting station as well and its name was changed to Columbus Barracks. Expanding in size and complexity over the years, by 1908 it consisted of a number of buildings in addition to the iconic Shot Tower in the center of the grounds. These included barracks and even a bandstand for the musicians of the post. A reporter from a local paper in 1908 decided to see how a young man became a soldier. He visited Columbus Barracks and wrote a lengthy article about what he found. A few excerpts from the article will tell us a little about the post itself as well as the soldiers in training there. “Down by the gate, a sentry, chosen from one of the permanent companies, his clothing as spic and span as if he had just stepped from a fashion plate, swings up and down on his beat, his rifle polished and glistening in the evening sun’s rays. “A bunch of applicants — some in half military dress, some in workman’s clothes and few in derby hats and long-tailed coats — is just coming through the gate. They have been temporarily ‘passed’ by some minor recruiting station in Zanesville, Cincinnati or some other point, and are here for their final examination. “Their names are taken, each is given a bath, and after supper are tucked away in row upon row of iron beds, built one over the other, like berths in a steamboat.” In the days that follow, the men are closely examined, outfitted and prepared for service in the army. The process begins: “The men are now clean, registered and have expressed a desire for the branch of the service they wish to enlist in — cavalry, infantry, coast artillery, etc. Different branches of the service require different builds of men. For instance, the coast artillery has different regulations about adenoids and lack of certain teeth than does the infantry arm. ... All must have eight connecting ‘grinders’however, for sometimes in the field, salted horse and hard tack are the only food for days. ... “The medical examination from start to finish is thorough. The applicant must be single (for the first enlistment) and physically perfect. ... He must have good sight, else the weapons the

government is to give him would be as a broomstick in the hands of a child; he must have no germs or tuED berculosis LENTZ lurking in the system; no tendency to hoard disease or other maladies. ... “All recruits must be between the ages of 18 and 35. He must not be under 5’4” in height. At that figure he must weigh at least 110 pounds. ... If he is physically sound and has come up to all the medical requirements, he is now sworn into the U. S. service as a recruit. “He gets a toilet kit first dash out of the box. This is all done up like a pair of shoes, in a neat box. There’s russet and a black belt and shoe polish, a hair brush, a tooth brush, a razor, soap, two towels, a whisk broom and a ‘housewife’ — a little packet containing threads, needles, buttons and whole lot of other things a man might want when his pants gets hung up on a barbed wire trocha. ... This costs Uncle Sam $3.01. “The applicant also gets tooth powder, a box of Tripoli to shine his buttons with, a gun brush, a shoe brush and a ‘button stick.’ ... The button stick is a piece of board, having a slot cut in it. This is slipped over the button and Mr. Applicant can shine his buttons to a fare-you-well, without getting any white powder on his clothes. “He gets a $6 olive drab blanket, not one of those National Guard affairs that years ago used to be used as a minnow seine between sleeps, but the real, frostdefying article. He gets an olive drab coat, trousers, leggins, three changes of underwear and six

pairs of socks. In addition he is served with four pairs of white medium weight gloves for dress affairs, and a cap and overcoat. ... To the heavy artillery, the outfit served is blue rather than olive drab. Then comes more clothes — a fatigue uniform (like overalls) but the color of new clear coffee is issued. “For 15 days or more, the embryo soldier learns to ‘guide right,’ ‘about face,’ ‘to the rear march,’ ‘ fours right about’ and the other little details that are necessary to tell the right hand from the left — quick! Then he gets a gun and its ‘shold hawms,’‘c’rry hawms,’ ‘p’rade res,’until he can’t see. He learns the gun drill and is ready in about 30 days to be transferred to some command that is ‘shy’ on membership ... the first year — in peace times — he gets clothes, board, medical attendance, washing and $13 a month. ... If Mr. Applicant gets to be a good shot he gets $2 a month extra for marksman; $3 for sharpshooter and $5 a month extra for expert rifleman. A sergeant in charge of a mess gets $6 a month extra. There are all kinds of ways to make extra money in the army. “In 15 days he is carrying a gun and learning the rudiments of the Manual of Arms; in three years he is the finished product, the finest type of man on earth — the American soldier.” In 1922, the name of Columbus Barracks would be changed to Fort Hayes in recognition of Civil War soldier and American President Rutherford B. Hayes. The post would continue to be a recruiting center through the Vietnam era. Today, most of the site serves as the Fort Hayes Metropolitan Education Center of the Columbus school district. Ed Lentz writes a history column for ThisWeek.

Actors Leslie Shaffer of Hilliard, Jodi Leis of Hilliard, Kevin Doll of Upper Arlington and Kurt Zielenbach of Hilliard run a scene during a dress rehearsal of ‘I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change.’

Arts council will stage off-Broadway comedy By GARY BUDZAK ThisWeek Community Newspapers The title alone is enough to make you laugh – ‘I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change.’ “There are a couple touching songs in it, but it’s primarily a comedy,” said director Robin Brenneman. The off-Broadway hit will be staged this weekend by the Hilliard Arts Council at the Hilliard Senior Center, 3810 Veterans Memorial Dr. The HAC has built a stage for the senior center, and 100-150 chairs will be set up. The comedy ran from 1996-2008, closing after 5,003 performances and is the secondlongest running off-Broadway musical. It was written by Joe DiPietro, with music by Jimmy Roberts. “It’s a series of vignettes that deal with the subject of male-female relationships, starting with dating and some of the different aspects of dating,” Brenneman said. “For instance, there’s one song called ‘A Stud and a Babe’, and it’s performed by two people that definitely aren’t. And then there’s another one called ‘Single Man Drought’, and it’s sung by two women who are out on dates with really boring guys.” The first act ends with a marriage, and the second act is married life. “There’s a scene with a couple who have just had a baby, and their single friend comes to visit them and all they can do is talk baby talk,” Brenneman said. “The single friend finally gets fed up and leaves saying, ‘call me when he gets through college.’ It’s really a very cute show.” It’s also a small show, with four people in the cast – Upper Arlington resident Kevin Doll, and three Hilliard residents Jodi Leis, Leslie Shaffer and Kurt Zielenbach.

A closer look The off-Broadway hit will be staged this weekend by the Hilliard Arts Council at the Hilliard Senior Center, 3810 Veterans Memorial Dr. The HAC has built a stage for the senior center, and 100-150 chairs will be set up. Showtimes are 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday (March 4-5), 3 p.m. Sunday (March 6). Tickets cost $12 adults; or $10 for students and senior citizens, and are available at the door or can be reserved by calling 614527-4407.

“They’re playing multiple roles,” Brenneman said. “Each one of the four people plays somewhere between 12-14 different roles throughout the play.” The cast auditioned in January, and have taken six weeks to rehearse the scenes and songs. Robin’s husband Ken Brenneman is the musical director, Ed Daniel is the set designer and technical director and there will be three musicians. All are volunteers, which is typical for community theatre. ‘I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change’ is about two hours long, with an intermission. Refreshments will be available. “There are a couple of adult-type situations,” Brenneman said. “Nothing terrible, but we decided to give it a PG-13 rating.” Showtimes are 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday (March 4-5), 3 p.m. Sunday (March 6). Tickets cost $12 adults; or $10 for students and senior citizens, and are available at the door or can be reserved by calling 614-527-4407.

One trustee questions spending on title plaque By GARY BUDZAK

there is the

ThisWeek Community Newspapers real possibili-

Funding for a plaque to recognize the 2009 Hilliard Davidson state championship football team was nearly stopped short of the end zone at last week’s Norwich Township trustee meeting. The trustees approved spending $1,762.50 from the general fund to the Hilliard Davidson Touchdown Club for the purchase of a plaque by a 2-1 vote on Feb. 22. “We did it for the previous state championship team (in 2006), and it’s reasonable that we do this one Larry Earman also,” said trustee Larry Earman. “This is one of the rare times when I respectfully disagree with my colleagues on this,” said trustee Mike Cope. “While it doesn’t seem like a lot of money,

ty that there could be several teams within one school that would be state Mike Cope champions in one year … we also now have three high schools. So what happens if all those people come to us asking for this?” “I say bring it on,” Earman said. “We can do it. You can’t create more positive publicity for a community than to have a state championship in almost any sport. Part of the reason for the cost is each player’s name and each coach’s name is on the plaque. If the basketball team won, it would be a whole lot (fewer names).” Cope said there’s “many private-sector corporations that could provide the $1,700 and I don’t know that they’ve ever been asked. The other thing is that I’m going to start voting no on all these goodwill things that we do.

With us spending a million dollars in the red, and then ready to go to the voters — probably next year — and ask them for additional millage, I can’t tell them that I’m still spending money on monuments. If we want do that, we should do these things privately, or we ought to take them out of our campaign funds if that’s possible, or there is a private company that can do this. If the boosters want to ask me for my opinions on it, I’ll be happy to take their wrath.” A vote was taken. Cope voted no, and Earman and trustee Chuck Buck voted yes. Also at the Chuck Buck meeting, township administrator Wayne Warner was given authorization to sign documents necessary to erect permanent signage at the Safety Services Building; and sexton Steve Montgomery discussed new software for the cemetery.

Third phase of triangle expected to start March 7 Continued from page A1 “We planned to have a shutdown period from Dec. 1 to March 1, so I wouldn’t say the winter’s had any impact on us at all,” Schamp said. The traffic signal has caused some problems with southbound traffic on Main Street, Schamp said, but “once that traffic signal’s removed, I think you’ll see that the roundabout works a lot better.” Despite a learning curve, Schamp

said people are adjusting to the roundabout near Old Hilliard. “Overall, I’m very pleased at how well it’s working, and I think once the second roundabout is put in, and people get used to that, I think it’ll be even better.” Schamp said putting a roundabout in a downtown area near schools has made drivers more attentive towards pedestrians. “There’s a lot more yielding of pedestrians going on at this roundabout than maybe you would see up at like Davidson and Britton, where

there aren’t as many pedestrians. The additional signage that we’ve put up there for pedestrians has helped too, because it brings to motorists’ attention more what they’re supposed to be doing at those crosswalks.” Since there will be work done on the west side of Main Street, there will be a single lane coming into and out of the roundabout, Schamp said. “Right now we have two lanes coming in heading northbound and two coming out heading southbound, but since that

area’s now going to be the work zone, there’s only going to be one lane in each direction. So it’s still going to be a little tight.” In May, work will be done east of Main Street into the fall, making access to High School Drive more difficult, Schamp said. During the summer, work will be done in front of Memorial Middle School and Bradford Drive. As always, drivers are advised to slow down and be patient during the construction. In addition, Hilliard po-

lice will be writing tickets to drivers who cut through private property. If all goes well, the triangle project should be completed Nov. 15. A few poorly-timed rains could change that, but “at this point in time, we don’t have any reason to believe that we can’t meet that date,” Schamp said.

Mistreated dogs recovering at county fairgrounds Continued from page A1 The dogs were about to be taken to the Madison County Fairgrounds, when it was found out that the county commissioners voted against allowing the dogs to stay there due to a zoning ordinance and liability concerns. Plan B was a hog barn in Richwood (Union County), but it was determined that there wasn’t enough space to hold the dogs. “We went to Plan C, which was the Franklin County Fairgrounds,” said Emily Schneider, ASPCA spokeswoman. The dogs were transported there midnight Feb. 22.

“An improvement in life for the dogs has been immediate,” said Tim Shade of the Franklin County Agricultural Society, which runs the Fairgrounds. “The dogs are in clean and dry kennels, they’ve got water in front of them, and they are being fed.” Shade said the dogs will need to leave the barn by April 10, when there will be a horse show. “We’re going to get these animals out of here as soon as humanly possible,” said James Straley, executive director of the Clark County Humane Society. “I don’t want them in a temporary shelter any longer than they have to. Someone told me that this was

the biggest dog seizure in the state of Ohio, but I don’t know if that’s true.” For now, the dogs are considered evidence, so they can’t be adopted yet. If the operator of the rescue releases them or can’t provide cash bond at an upcoming hearing, the Clark County Humane Society would likely be granted custody of the animals. On a visit to the Fairgrounds last week, a reporter was not allowed in the barn where the dogs were held, being told the dogs needed to adjust to their new temporary home. Plenty of barking could be heard, though, and dog carriers were stacked along the

barn next to an ASPCA trailer. At least one hundred volunteers have helped the dogs, which includes taking donations of blankets for bedding, towels and indestructible toys at the Fairgrounds. Jerry Kleis, a volunteer from Hilliard, said donations were off to a good start last week. “Sam’s Club came in, donated a bunch of stuff, a couple other local businesses have chipped in. I rescued my dog eight years ago, so I figured I can pitch in a little bit while I’ve got some time on my hands.” For more information, call the Humane Society Serving Clark County Inc. at 937-399-2917.

The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) released these photos of three of the dogs that were being seized from a rescue shelter in Clark County.

Davidson’s DiSabato, Delande ready for state By JEREMY STEWART ThisWeek Community Newspapers It was far from a perfect Division I district tournament for the Hilliard Davidson High School wrestling team, but the two individuals who advanced to state appear poised to make deep runs. The Wildcats had 10 competitors at district Feb. 25-26 at Hilliard Darby, but only Chase Delande and Angelo DiSabato finished in the top four of their weight classes to qualify for state Thursday, March 3, through Saturday, March 5, at Ohio State.

DiSabato will be making his third appearance after winning the district title at 119 pounds by defeating Darby’s Cameron Longwell 5-1. After an eighthplace finish at state as a sophomore and going 1-2 last year, DiSabato is motivated to follow in his father’s footsteps. His father, Davidson coach Dominic DiSabato, won three state titles in high school. “I’m just ready to get my title,” said Angelo DiSabato, whose team scored 76.5 points at district to place fifth behind Olentangy Liberty (128.5). “Three years I’ve been let down. I have to get

it in my fourth year. It’s been my goal ever since I was 5 years old. It’s like everyone in my family has got one.” Having wrestled a competitive schedule, coach DiSabato said Angelo should not put too much pressure on himself. “He’s wrestling very good and very confident,” coach DiSabato said. “We don’t want the pressure that he’s a DiSabato and he has to win this year. Just go out and wrestle your best. This is the first year that he hasn’t left the district tournament with an injury, so we’re going to be full throttle.” An elbow injury limited DiSabato as

a sophomore, and a sprained ankle hobbled him last year. DiSabato, who is 47-3, opens the state tournament with a first-round match against Wadsworth’s Aaron Warstler, who is 14-13. Delande will be making his second appearance at state after beating Liberty’s Ethan Snyder 10-4 in the district championship match at 145. Delande, who was 1-2 at state last year, improved to 42-2 by beating Snyder. He opens state against Holland Springfield’s Connor DeCavitch, who is 33-8. “You could argue (Delande) as the

Central District wrestler of the year,” coach DiSabato said. “He’s lost two matches to the same guy in the same tournament. He’s been dominant. He just looks so confident out there and is so physical and very mistake free.” Also competing at district were Jacob Davis (112, 3-3, sixth), Kyle Ehrhardt (160, 2-2), Nolan Gill (140, 1-2), Trent Gill (103, 0-2) Eric Hoffman (125, 12), Nick Lawler (130, 0-2), Marshall Knoch (215, 2-2) and Alex Mickley (152, 2-3). See WRESTLING, page B4


Emotions roared at district wrestling Joy and relief were among the feelings Olentangy Liberty High School wrestler Jarrod Boone experienced as he walked off the mat after his 3-0 victory over Westland’s Scott Haslam in a consolation semifinal Feb. 26 at Hilliard Darby. The win assured Boone a spot among the top four in his weight JARROD class, landing ULREY him a coveted berth in the Division I state tournament at Ohio State for the first time. It also meant he was one of the fortunate ones — particularly at 125 pounds — to avert the painful feelings associated with being a senior whose dreams of advancing to state get dashed for the final time. There were 93 seniors among the 224 overall district representatives at Darby, but 12 of those were among the 16 competitors at 125. The weight that had the next most seniors was 215, which had nine. Needless to say, the emotions throughout the action last weekend were wide-ranging at 125 as top-seeded seniors such as Hilliard Davidson’s Eric Hoffman and Lancaster’s Ben Davis came up short of qualifying for state. Troy’s Cole Cochran pinned Beavercreek’s Josh Stevens in 4 minutes, 54 seconds in a matchup of seniors for the 125 championship, while Boone settled for fourth after losing to Pickerington Central senior Isaiah Brunner 7-3 in the thirdplace match. But for those four athletes, how they did during the night finals Feb. 26 was secondary to the fact that they had survived what was perhaps the tournament’s most rugged bracket. “It was really competitive because I’ve wrestled a few of these guys before,” Boone said. “I was really happy and nervous at the same time. It’s great because now you get to be recognized throughout the state. You know you’re one of the top 16 in the entire state.” Boone came in with extra motivation after losing in his consolation semifinal and settling for being a state alternate a year ago. He attended last year’s state tournament and watched as teammate Ethan Snyder competed. Boone then participated in more open tournaments than in any previous offseason. Having a more focused attitude also has helped Brunner. He was a district qualifier at 103 as a sophomore at Central despite coming out for the sport for the first time. Last season, he attended Columbus South and ended up fifth at a Division II sectional at 119.

Swimming & Diving

Hilliard duo produces memories By PAUL BATTERSON ThisWeek Community Newspapers

As she finished warming up at the Division II state swimming and diving meet on Feb. 24 at Canton’s C.T. Branin Natatorium, something shiny caught the eyes of Hilliard Bradley High School junior Kaitlyn Goldsmith. “There was a penny laying there on the deck. I think it’s my lucky penny. I’ll keep it with me and I have that to remind me about this state meet,” said Goldsmith, who placed 22nd in the 50-yard freestyle (25.28 seconds) behind Cortland Maplewood senior Jordan Moxley, who won the title in 23.51 on Feb. 25. Goldsmith, who placed 24th (25.38) in the 50 free last year, was one of two swimmers from the Hilliard school district who reached state this year. In the Division I meet that concluded Feb. 26, Davidson junior Sarah Behrent finished 23rd in the 100 butterfly in 59.69. Pickerington Central sophomore Maddie Martin won the state title in a record 53.34. Neither the Jaguars nor the Wildcats scored at their meets. Gates Mills Hawken won the Division II girls meet with 334 points while Upper Arlington (286) was the Division I girls champion.

Bradley’s Kaitlyn Goldsmith (right) takes off in the 50-yard freestyle in the Division II state championships Feb. 24. Goldsmith finished 22nd in 25.28 seconds.

Behrent, who competed for the Wildcats for the first time this season, said she was amazed by the atmosphere at state. “It’s a totally different atmosphere and a brand new experience for me,” she said. “It showed me where I needed to be to qualify for state and do well.” •Behrent leads a host of swimmers who hope to rebuild Davidson next season.

The girls team loses seniors Sarah Wilt and Alina Wungsirivesh to graduation while Nick Eastham, Vince Gill, Brendan Page and Joe Stewart will graduate from the boys team. Coach Brian Dickmann expects Behrent, sophomores Erin Brooks and Megan Wittman and juniors Caroline Hildebrand and Alisa Wungsirivesh to return to the

girls team. Juniors Nic Miner and Matt Sheahan are expected back for the boys team. The girls team placed fourth at the OCCCentral meet on Jan. 29 behind UA (453), Thomas Worthington (252) and Dublin Coffman (171) and ahead of Central Crossing (171), Worthington Kilbourne (61) and Hilliard Darby (50). Davidson was fifth (88) and Darby tied Central Crossing for 13th (8) at the Division I sectional on Feb. 12 at UA behind the champion Golden Bears (416). The Wildcats were 13th (68) behind the champion Bears (505) at the Division I district girls meet on Feb. 19 at Ohio State as the Panthers didn’t score. “Sarah (Wilt) did a very good job of pulling the team together with the new structure of being under one coach and Alina will be sorely missed for her versatility. She was sort of a jack of all trades,” Dickmann said. In his only year of competing in high school, Gill played a key role for the boys team. He set school records while placing fifth in the 100 breaststroke (1:00.42) and 12th in the 200 individual medley (2:01.09) at district. See SWIMMING, page B5


’Cats girls step up defense in district tournament run By AARON BLANKENSHIP ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Davidson’s Maddison Blackwell shoots over Lindsay Rieland (right) and Sarah Auker of Dublin Jerome on See ULREY, page B3 Feb. 25 at Olentangy. The Wildcats won 40-30.

Hilliard Davidson High School girls basketball coach Joy Taylor was not thrilled with her team’s offensive lapses against Dublin Jerome in the second round of the Division I district tournament on Feb. 25 at Olentangy. Davidson failed to score during the last four minutes of the first quarter, the final 3:36 of the second quarter and the last 3:09 of the third quarter. The Wildcats also scored only one point over the final 5:19 of the fourth quarter. Fortunately for the 12th-seeded Wildcats, they played good enough

defense to earn a 40-30 victory. “We worked hard defensively and took them out of what they wanted to do,” Taylor said. “We won this game because of our defense.” The Wildcats took a 24-6 halftime lead and led 33-11 after three quarters. Maddison Blackwell and Madie

Long each scored nine points to lead Davidson. The Celtics made only 10 of 42 field-goal attempts. “We started off the game really well and shut them down,” Taylor said. “We let up in the second half and gave up too many rebounds and second chances, but we played well enough to win the game.” Davidson improved to 16-6 heading into a district semifinal against top-seeded Reynoldsburg on March 2. The winner will play either sixth-seeded Brookhaven or Pickerington Central in a district final on Saturday, March 5, at Olentangy Liberty. See WILDCATS, page B5

Lindsey thrives in role for Jaguars girls By BRAD EMERINE ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Kathy Lindsey’s advice to her daughter, Katie, has paid dividends for the Hilliard Bradley High School girls basketball team. “I used to shoot the ball a lot more because I wanted to score and be a star like she was,” Katie, a junior point guard, said of her mother who coaches the Jaguars. “It was maybe in sixth grade when I felt the pressure of living up to what I thought were her standards as a player and a coach. But she told me to stop trying to be like her. She said, ‘Don’t be me, be you.’” It was about that time that Katie decided she wanted to play point guard and began taking pride in running the offense and sharing the ball. “She shoots well, but that’s not her role because we have so many others capable of shooting and scoring,” coach Lindsey said. “She gets others involved in the game and plays good team defense. There’s enough pressure being a point guard, but I don’t think she feels extra pressure because I’m her coach. The players, coaches and parents have all been supportive.” Kathy (Gordon) Lindsey played four years at Ohio State beginning in 197475 and was a co-captain in her senior season. She coached high school girls tennis and basketball at Oxford Ta-

lawanda from 1978-83 and advanced to the Big Ten where she was an assistant at Purdue (1983-85) and Ohio State (1985-90) before being head coach at Illinois (1990-95). She returned and served head coaching stints at DeSales (1995-97) and Davidson (1997-2007) before being an assistant at Dublin Coffman (200809). Kathy is a member of the halls of fame at Talawanda and Middletown, where her father coached football from 1964-81. “We all have roles on this team, and maybe next year I’ll need to score more, but that’s not this year,” said Katie, whose team was 18-3 before playing DeSales in a Division II district semifinal on March 1. “We’ve got plenty of shooters and scorers here. I’m satisfied to fill my role and help the team win. We all understand our roles and that’s why we have balance and camaraderie.” The Jaguars hope it leads them into a district final at 8:30 p.m. Thursday, March 3 at Ohio Dominican. The other semifinal on March 1 pitted Lakewood against top-seeded Olentangy. Because Katie provides leadership and is the coach on the floor, she actually is following in her mother’s footsteps. “That part of it was bound to rub off because she has been attending camps and clinics with me since she was about 5, more for the sake of baby-

sitting,” coach Lindsey said. “She picked up on things though. She thinks like a coach and goes with me to help scout opponents.” Katie said they share a strong relationship because they have separated their home from gymnasiums. “I have to treat her as two different people, as my coach at times and as my mom at times,” Katie said. “Sometimes I need to remind myself which one I’m talking to.” “We try not to take it home with us,” coach Lindsey said. “We do talk basketball at home, but only about trying to help her. We don’t talk at home about other players or other coaches and we don’t recount every play of a game. There has to be a balance. I try to talk to her about college visitations, her friends, whatever. We just need to communicate about things other than basketball.” Lakewood was 9-12 entering its semifinal against Olentangy, but upset sixth-seeded Hartley 47-39 in the second round. The Lancers are led by

shooting guard Tosha Henderson and 5-foot-9 post player Courtney Kidwell. The Braves were 19-3, with their losses by a combined 14 points. Olentangy is led by 5-10 guards Olivia Zwayer and Brooke Zwayer. Olivia is a senior and her sister is a sophomore. The Braves also get strong post play from 6-0 sophomore Meghan Beidelman, who continues to start even after 6-1 sophomore Lydia Hyburg returned from an injury. The other starters are senior guards Emily Raiff and Jessica Richardson. “They love to change defenses throughout to try to force you into a mental lapse and a turnover,” coach Lindsey said. “They love to run and shoot and the Zwayers take most of their shots.” •The boys team finished 9-12 after losing to Bexley 64-60 in the first round of the Division II district tournament Feb. 22 at Grove City. “We led almost the entire game, but we couldn’t make open shots in the second half and they made everything,” coach Michael Limbird said. “We were up 30-18 in the first half, and Bexley was cold shooting. But they only missed three shots in the second half and we were cold shooting. They took their first lead of the second half at 62-60, we missed a 3-pointer and had to foul them and they made both free throws for the final score.” Trent Weaver scored 25 points to

lead Bradley. Derek Tieman had 15 and Jacob Starinsky added 10. Weaver, a 6-4 junior center, averaged 17.2 points and 11.4 rebounds. He was first-team all-OCC-Capital and first-team all-district. Senior Evan Bell (9.0 points per game) was special mention all-league and Tieman, another of the team’s five seniors, was honorable mention all-league after averaging 8.8 points. Bradley finished fifth at 7-7 in the OCC-Capital, behind New Albany (131), Delaware (11-3), Mount Vernon (10-4) and Olentangy Orange (9-5). Big Walnut (4-10) was sixth, as Franklin Heights and Watkins Memorial shared seventh (1-13). The rest of the seniors included Jerry Briggs, Mo Hassan and Dakota Rohrer, who was the Jaguars’ OCC scholarathlete. “We grew by leaps and bounds this season, just indescribable growth,” Limbird said. “The seniors did a great job building the leadership and expectations of the program. With them building the foundation, I’m proud to say we’re on the right track.” Expected to return to join Weaver and Starinsky are junior guard A.J. Dixon and junior forward Kevin Girardi, who suffered a torn ACL and missed most of this season.


Stallions respond to tragedy by winning district title By AARON BLANKENSHIP ThisWeek Community Newspapers

DiMichaelangelo competed for the Stallions as a freshman and sophomore and had remained friends with many of her former teammates. DeSales was sluggish and unfo-

cused in practice after attending DiMichaelangelo’s funeral on Feb. 22, and coach Misty Lloyd-Matthews wasn’t sure how effective her squad would be when it competed in the district meet Feb. 26 at Worthington Kilbourne. Therefore, Lloyd-Matthews was thrilled to see her team score a season-best 136.85 points to win its second consecutive district title and eighth championship in 10 years. Thomas Worthington (134.525) placed second, with Kilbourne (134.25), Dublin Coff-

man (133.35) and Dresden Tri-Valley (132.5) rounding out the top five. “This was an emotional week for us and it was hard to get the girls motivated and focused in practice because they were such close friends with Milena,” Lloyd-Matthews said. “I wasn’t sure how we’d do because we had a bad week of practice, but I think the girls wanted to do well in honor of Milena and they came here and had one of our best overall days of competition. All of them did amazing at district.”

DeSales was led by sophomore Kate Miltko and junior Katie Vance. Miltko won vault with a 9.175, finished second in the all-around (35.0) and tied Dublin Jerome’s Hannah Ruddle for second on uneven bars (8.675). Vance won balance beam (9.1), finished third on floor exercise (9.075) and tied Ruddle for fifth in the all-around (34.55). The top three district teams will compete in the state team tournament on Friday, March 4, at Hilliard Bradley. The top eight finishers in each event, including the all-around, will com-






pete in the individual state tournament on Saturday, March 5, at Bradley. DeSales finished eighth (134.85) at state last year behind champion Brecksville-Broadview Heights (148.05). “I did the (Tsukahara) that I normally do on vault, but I hit it better than I usually do,” Miltko said. “We’re excited to go back to state and we’re hoping to do better than we did last year. Individually, I want to place in See GYMNASTICS, page B3

Seniors provided leadership for Panthers boys By SCOTT HENNEN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

At a glance

Hard work and effort were not enough for the Hilliard Darby High School boys basketball team in its Division I district tournament opener against Olentangy Liberty on Feb. 23 at Jonathan Alder. Liberty built a 12-point lead after one quarter en route to a 6543 win over the Panthers, who finished 7-13 overall. “(Liberty) just outplayed us from the get-go,” coach Brett Norris said. “We just never, ever, ever were able to control any part of the game. They had us on our heels in everything. They guarded better, shot better, played better offensively and coached better. They were just better. I don’t think it was a lack of effort on our part; we played hard. We just didn’t play nearly as well as they did.” Brennan Hook led the Panthers with 16 points and Matt Cyrus added 13 points. “It’s been a tough senior year with our record, but that isn’t an indication of how good we (were),” Cyrus said. “We have lost mostly tough, close games and, if you take away a couple of minutes here and there, we might have won more.” Upper Arlington and Dublin Coffman tied for the OCC-Central title at 13-1 followed by

BOYS •Record: 7-13 overall, 5-9 (tied for fifth) in OCC-Central •Seniors lost: Matt Allen, Matt Cyrus and Brennan Hook •Key returnees: Nic Baker, Tae Bradley, Bryson Hook and Taylor VanWinkle

Thomas Worthington at 9-5 and Hilliard Davidson at 7-7. Darby and Worthington Kilbourne tied for fifth at 5-9, and Central Crossing and Westland were both 2-12. The Panthers began the season with three players who had varsity experience in seniors Matt Allen (5-11, point guard), Cyrus (6-0, guard/forward) and Hook (6-2, forward). Hook averaged a team-high 12.2 points per game, while Cyrus averaged 6.5 points and Allen 5.5 points. “Our seniors have had to overcome some adversities in their careers in this program, but all three of them are model student-athletes who worked really hard and are good leaders who will do well in life after high school,” said Norris, who completed his sixth season with the program. “They’re all good, solid kids. When we played well this season, it was because of them. They’ll be sorely missed.” The top returning scorer ex-

pected to return is junior Bryson Hook. The 6-0 guard, the brother of Brennan Hook, averaged 6.4 points per game. Other key players expected to return are 6-3 junior forward Tae Bradley, 6-1 sophomore guard/ forward Nic Baker and Taylor VanWinkle, a 5-11 freshman guard who scored six points on two 3-pointers against Liberty. Also expected back are juniors Corey Carter (5-11, guard), Tyler Giese (6-0, guard) and Steven Miles (6-5, center) as

well as sophomores Jacob Atkinson (6-0, guard), Cade Carter (5-11, guard), Caleb Day (6-0, guard), Clay Schmidt (65, center) and Zack Williams (6-3, forward). “Our j.v. team went 9-10 and they need to have a great offseason to help us pump this program back up,” Norris said. “As a whole, we need to have a much better offseason than we have had in recent years.”

ULREY Continued from page B1 Refocused and back with the Tigers this season, Brunner lost to Boone 8-5 in the sectional final at Pickerington North on Feb. 19. At district, he was pinned by Cochran in 1:10 in a semifinal but edged Davis 2-1 in his next match to qualify for state. Brunner had fallen to Davis 8-6 during the Tigers’ 30-24 dual victory Feb. 4.

“I think with (so many) of the guys being seniors (at 125) it was more intense, so it was harder,” Brunner said. “I would have been mad if I hadn’t made it (to state). I like wrestling, but I just really don’t like losing. I was mad when I didn’t get out as a sophomore but I got over it. “Last year I think I played around too much. I think my coaches this year pushed me harder because they knew I could get to state.”

There might not be a more hopeless feeling for wrestlers than when all their hours of conditioning, drilling and becoming mentally tougher doesn’t result in victories during the most intense situations. For seniors such as Boone and Brunner, the payoff makes the hard work seem worth it.

the top six in at least one event, too.” Thomas coach Marci Skeen was thrilled after her squad held off Kilbourne to place second at district for the second consecutive year. Freshman Leah Carloni was the Cardinals’ top performer, placing fourth on vault (8.9) and eighth in the all-around (34.375). “We’re so excited right now, because it was so close between us and Kilbourne for second,” Skeen said. “We had our highest vault total that we’ve had all season and that carried us through the rest of the day.” Thomas finished 10th (132.2) at state a year ago. “Our goal was to win our first district title since 1997, but we’re still happy to be going to state,” Cardinals senior Kathleen Reid said. “Our next goal is to place in the top half of the state meet.” Kilbourne coach Cindy Fushimi said she was content with finishing third at district for the second year in a row. Junior Erica Rodriguez led the Wolves by winning floor with a 9.225 and placing seventh in the all-around (34.425). “I’m happy and a little surprised we finished this high, because we started off rough with a lot of falls on beam,” Fushimi said. “But we regrouped and came back strong in our other three events, especially on floor where we had some of our best scores of the season.” The Wolves finished ninth (132.625) at the state meet last season. “We’re going to do a lot of work on beam to prepare for state, and maybe we can try to finish higher than ninth there this year,” Fushimi said. Hilliard Darby senior Meghan Parsley finished first in the allaround (35.55), second on both vault (9.1) and floor (9.125), fourth on beam (8.725) and fifth on bars (8.6). “I’ve never won an event at district before, so I’m ecstatic to win all-around,” Parsley said. “I definitely want to make the

Warhawks sweep; Pannell rolls perfect game By FRANK DiRENNA

At a glance

ThisWeek Community Newspapers

It was a memorable day for a pair of Westerville high school bowling programs at the district tournament Feb. 26 at HP Lanes. For the first time in program history, the Westerville Central boys and girls swept the titles, earning berths to the state tournament on Friday, March 4, and Saturday, March 5, at Wayne Webb’s Columbus Bowl. Meanwhile, Westerville South sophomore Zach Pannell earned his first state berth after finishing second overall with a season-high 749 series to Groveport’s Chris Lane (762). Included in Pannell’s series score was his second career 300 game. Pannell, whose first perfect game came in a non-OHSAA-sanctioned event, rolled the 300 in his first game at district despite competing with an injured right thumb on his throwing hand. He also had games of 225 and 224. “All I was thinking about was throwing good shots,” Pannell said. “I’ve been struggling with this thumb being ripped open. I was hoping that I would be able to bowl (at district) and that 300 helps out. The way I throw the ball just tears the thumb up. It started hurting a little in the Baker (games).” “After about his first or second practice shot, he had a pretty good look on

the lanes and then he just started striking like crazy and never stopped,” South assistant coach Mike Craig said. Pannell had hoped to compete at state with his teammates, as the South boys team held the third and final statequalifying spot heading into the Baker games. However, Gahanna rallied by scoring a 1,145 in the Baker games — its top score of the season — to earn the final state berth with a total of 4,026, behind champion Central (4,168) and runner-up Zanesville Maysville

(4,068). South finished fifth (3,953), behind fourth-place Circleville (4,000). Senior Jamie Robinson led Central with a 696 series to place fourth overall. “Our boys worked their butts off, not only (at district), but all year,” Central coach Julie Wells said. “They’ve been working hard, they’ve been working as a team and they put it all out there (at district).” Gahanna will be making its first state appearance as a team. The Lions were led by senior Jacob Reed, who

rolled a 666 series to finish fifth overall. “It was just a good group of kids working together and hitting their spares,” Gahanna coach Bruce Zink said. “We bowled the best Bakers we’ve had. You have to position yourself in the regular games and then you have to hold that position and move ahead in the Bakers. This being our best Bakers allowed us to move on.” •Central dominated the girls competition, scoring a 3,898 to finish well ahead of runner-up Zanesville (3,564)

WRESTLING Continued from page B1 •Bradley advanced three from the Division II district tournament at Columbus East. Led by Andrew Higgins, Bradley (75) placed eighth behind champion Olentangy (158.5). Higgins won the title at 152, beating Olentangy’s Caleb Hetterscheidt 1-0 in the championship to improve to 39-3. Higgins, who was 1-2 at state last year, opens state against Port Clinton’s Jarrod Fleming, who is 42-7. Conor Driscoll and Jake Zoller will make their first appearances at state. Driscoll, who pinned Lisbon Beaver’s Steven Swartz in 3 minutes, 58 seconds in a thirdplace match at district, wasn’t cleared to wrestle until Feb. 1 because of a football-related injury. He is 14-1 heading and opens against Mantua Crestwood’s Adam Horovitz, who is 39-6. “He did a tremendous job staying focused and training hard throughout November, December and January when he wasn’t able to get on the mat,” coach John Riggs said. “The type of focus and concentration and mental and physical discipline to keep yourself in competition shape when you’re restricted says something about how hard he worked.”

and third-place Whitehall (3,504). Junior Mary Wells, the defending individual state champion, led Central with a 620 series, placing first overall. The Warhawks are looking for their first state championship after finishing second to Youngstown Boardman last season, losing 3-1 in the best-offive state final. “Both teams have more work ahead of us,” coach Wells said. “This is just the progression of the year. Now we have a week to prepare ourselves for state and it’s all about meeting each individual goal along the way. The girls remember last year’s disappointment vividly. They would like a chance at redemption, but we’ve got to get there.” Ready senior Allison Lichwa, a fourtime district qualifier, earned her first trip to state after finishing with a 582 series, securing the first individual statequalifying berth and finishing third overall, behind Wells and Zanesville’s Erika Savage (588). “I knew I had a shot, but it was so unpredictable because I didn’t know how I was going to do (at district) or how anything was going to be played,” Lichwa said. “This means a whole lot because it means I’ve accomplished something from my freshman year to this year.”


Zoller finished fourth after losing a third-place match to London’s Galo Santos 4-2. Zoller, who is 29-7, opens state against St. Paris Graham’s Nick Brascetta, who is 43-1. Also competing were Austin Johnston (135, 2-2), Tyler Kidd (heavyweight, 1-2), Ricky McGrath (171, 1-2) and Devin Wohrle (130, 2-3, sixth). •Darby has three going to the Division I state meet led by Longwell, who is making his second appearance. The loss to DiSabato in the district championship match dropped Longwell to 32-7. He opens state against Amherst Steele’s Mark Matos, who is 38-8. After going 0-2 at state last year, Longwell is hoping another year of experience will help. “I think the shock from being there last year was a big part of (going 0-2),” Longwell said. “Coming out of the tunnel and seeing all the lights and the big scene and big show, it’s kind of breathtaking. Now that I’ve seen that stuff I can focus on just the wrestling aspect instead of the whole show.” Joining him are teammates Sufyan El-Geroushi and Tyler Bowens, who coach Brendan Moody said were battling injuries.

El-Geroushi defeated Liberty’s Luke Fleming 3-1 to place third at heavyweight at district. He is 36-5 and opens state against Canton Glen Oak’s Derrick Everett, who is 35-5. Bowens finished fourth at 160 after losing a third-place match to Grove City’s Jose Hughes 1412 in overtime. Bowens, who is

30-8, opens against Mayfield’s Tyler Coleman, who is 38-3. Also competing at district were Jake Donatelli (125, 2-2), Sam Valenti (103, 3-3, sixth) and Matthew Walker (152, 1-2). Darby finished ninth (57) at district.

WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service announced the selection of 32 new members to serve on the nationwide Taxpayer Advocacy Panel. The TAP is a federal advisory committee charged with providing direct taxpayer feedback to the IRS. The new TAP members will join 70 returning members to round out the panel of 102 volunteers for 2011. The new members were selected from more than 500 interested individuals from all over the country who applied during an open recruitment period last spring and include Mark Marshalek of Powell. “TAP members represent the nation’s taxpayers, both in what they want and what they need,” said IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman. “They provide the IRS with invaluable insights to ensure that the taxpaying public has a voice in the tax administration process.” The TAP listens to taxpayers, identifies issues and makes suggestions for improving IRS service and customer satisfaction. Oversight and program support for the TAP are provided by the Taxpayer Advocate Service, an independent organization within the IRS that helps resolve taxpayer problems and make recommendations to avoid future problems. “It is extremely important that the IRS consider the needs and preferences of America’s taxpayers,” said Nina E.

WILDCATS Continued from page B1 That winner will play Fairborn or Liberty Township Lakota East in a regional semifinal on Tuesday, March 8, at Otterbein. The regional final will be held March 11 at Otterbein. Brookhaven beat Westerville South 4738 on Feb. 25 to improve to 15-5, as 6-foot1 senior post player Chanae’ Ward scored 16 points, 5-7 junior guard Jasmine Johnson scored 10 points and 5-8 senior guard Travecia Franklin scored nine points. Pickerington Central defeated fourthseeded Watterson 65-61 on Feb. 25 to improve to 12-10, as 5-5 senior guard Katie Stevens scored 20 points, 6-2 sophomore post player Marley Hill scored 11 points and 5-6 freshman guard Aajah Hawkins scored nine points. Taylor would like to see her squad continue to feature a balanced offensive attack. Leading Davidson in scoring through 22 contests were Long (9.7 points per game), Lauren Bates (9.1), Blackwell (6.7), Katie Dymek (6.5), Samantha Bradway (5.4), Ashley Hurt (3.8) and Ashley Weethee (3.4). “I definitely feel confident in everyone on this team that they can score if they’re open,” Taylor said. “But the biggest key is we need to play good defense and shut our opponents down.” •The boys team found itself in a familiar position heading into the fourth quarter of its Division I district opener against Olentangy Orange on Feb. 22 at Jonathan Alder. After being outscored 27-15 over the sec-

ond and third quarters, the Wildcats rallied from a 37-31 deficit to tie the 10th-seeded Pioneers at 43-all with less than a minute remaining. But Orange made five of six free throws in the final minute to earn a 50-45 win. “This was probably a fitting end to our season because it was reflective of how we usually played, whether we won or lost,” said coach Kevin Logsdon, whose squad finished 11-10 overall. “Our kids gave a great effort but we always seemed to have a stretch where we didn’t play well and dug ourselves a hole, and then had to fight back. We fought back and had a chance to win late in the game, but on this night, we were unable to cash in and win.” The Wildcats won 11 of their first 16 games, beating Olentangy Liberty 50-43 on Jan. 8 and Hilliard Darby 52-45 on Jan. 14 during that stretch. Junior guard Brandon Gleim scored 15 points and junior point guard Davonte Peterson scored 13 points against Darby. But Davidson lost its last five games, including back-to-back close losses to Darby (50-47 on Feb. 18) and Zanesville (60-51 on Feb. 19) to close out the regular season. The Wildcats finished fourth in the OCCCentral Division at 7-7, behind co-champions Dublin Coffman (13-1) and Upper Arlington (13-1) and Thomas Worthington (9-5), and ahead of Darby (5-9), Worthington Kilbourne (5-9), Central Crossing (2-12) and Westland (2-12). “We had a good year, with great kids who had good chemistry,” Logsdon said.

“We had some nice wins, but our lack of size and the dry spells we had really hurt us.” The Wildcats will lose senior guard Andrew Gronski, who started every game and averaged six points, as well as senior post player Kevin Stephenoff, who started nearly half of Davidson’s games and averaged one point. Players who started multiple games who are expected to return are Peterson, Gleim, junior wing player Chris Logsdon and junior guard Chris Martin. Peterson averaged 13 points and was firstteam all-league and honorable mention alldistrict. Logsdon averaged 9.8 points and was second-team all-league and honorable mention all-district. Martin averaged 3.8 points and was honorable mention all-league. Gleim and junior wing player Cole Lawson each averaged 6.9 points, and junior wing player Robert Snauwaert averaged 1.7 points. “We’ve got six kids coming back with experience, so it’s a matter of getting better and bringing in a little bit of size with some of the younger guys we bring up,” coach Logsdon said. “We have to boost our level of commitment in the offseason if we want to get to the next level. We’re not going to get better just because we have a bunch of guys coming back, because you know that UA, Coffman and Thomas are all going to work hard, too. We need to work hard on turning some of our weaknesses into strengths.”

Continued from page B1 The boys team finished sixth at the OCC-Central meet behind UA (388.5), Thomas (252), Coffman (162.5), Kilbourne (133) and Darby (123) and ahead of Central Crossing (55). Darby was fourth (82) and Davidson 10th (36) behind Upper Arlington (414) at the boys sectional, and the Panthers were 11th (70) and the Wildcats were 20th (19) behind champion UA (432.5) at district. “For swimming only one season, Gill made his mark by becoming an OCC champion (winning the 100 breast in 1:01.68),” Dickmann said. “His points and his experience will be missed.” •The Bradley girls team will lose Maddie McDonald to graduation and should return a lineup led by freshman Delaney Banda, sophomore Shea Driscoll and Goldsmith, who were all district qualifiers. “We’re all going to miss Maddie,” Dickmann said. “Her experience and her ability to pull people together will be missed on the team next year.” The boys team had only two members, and both Josh Guy and Jon Satre are expected to return. At the OCC-Capital meet on Jan. 29, the boys team finished seventh (42) behind New Albany (432), Delaware (285), Mount Vernon (166), Olentangy Orange (119), Watkins Memorial (74) and Big Walnut (60). The girls team took fifth (114) behind New Albany (343), Delaware (268), Orange (174) and Mount Vernon (155) and ahead of Big Walnut (112) and Watkins Memorial (98). In the Division II sectional at UA, the girls finished third of five teams with 296 points behind champion Wellington (296) and Grandview (255), while the boys finished sixth (37) behind champion Grandview (284). At district, the girls were ninth (82) behind champion Granville (368) and the boys tied AmandaClearcreek for 25th (23) behind champion Granville (256.5). •Darby, which didn’t have any swimmers advance to state, set several team records this season. The 400 free relay of Sam Dignan, Cory McLaughlin, Hunter

At a glance BRADLEY •Finishes: Boys — Finished seventh in OCC-Capital, sixth at Division II sectional and tied for 25th at district; Girls — Finished fifth in OCC-Capital, third at sectional, ninth at district and didn’t score at state •Seniors lost: Boys — None; Girls — Maddie McDonald •Key returnees: Boys — Josh Guy and Jon Satre; Girls — Delaney Banda, Shea Driscoll and Kaitlyn Goldsmith DARBY •Finishes: Boys — Finished fifth in OCC-Central, fourth at Division I sectional and 11th at district; Girls — Finished seventh in OCC-Central, tied for 13th at sectional and didn’t score at district •Seniors lost: Boys — Alex Bean, Sam Dignan, Grant Koscik and Robert Martin; Girls — Alex Caruthers and Ashley Street •Key returnees: Boys — Hunter Cook and Cory McLaughlin; Girls — Taylor Gauder and Felicitee Sinn DAVIDSON •Finishes: Boys — Finished sixth in OCC-Central, 10th at sectional and 20th at district; Girls — Finished fourth in OCC-Central, fifth at sectional, 13th at district and didn’t score at state •Seniors lost: Boys — Nick Eastham, Vince Gill, Brendan Page and Joe Stewart; Girls — Sarah Wilt and Alina Wungsirivesh •Key returnees: Boys — Nic Miner and Matt Sheahan; Girls — Sarah Behrent, Erin Brooks, Caroline Hildebrand, Megan Wittman and Alisa Wungsirivesh

Cook and Alex Bean broke a 13year-old record by finishing in 3:23.93 at district. Also setting records at district were Cook in the 200 free (1:47.16) and the 500 free (4:44.41), Bean in the 50 free (22.35) and the 200 medley relay of McLaughlin, Cook, Dignan and Bean (1:45.06). Darby will lose Bean, Dignan, Grant Koscik and Robert Martin from the boys team and Alex Caruthers and Ashley Street from the girls team. “Sam, Alex Bean and Alex Caruthers are all four-year letterwinners and are some of the best swimmers we’ve had come through here,” Dickmann said. “It’s difficult to replace four-year letterwinners.”

forming.’Ari Hest loves you. He just loves songwriting more. “There’s something about the feeling of coming up with a good melody or a good line,” Hest told The Beat. “That’s why I do what I do.” Hest, a Brooklyn-based pop singer-songwriter, has proven his adroitness in those other areas as well. In the midst of a heavy touring schedule, he self-produced his 2009 album Twelve Mondays. The project culminated a 2008 Web-based project in which he wrote, recorded and released a new song every Monday throughout the year, allowing fans to then select their 12 favorites for the album. “I made all the decisions,” Hest said. “So (for his new record, Sunset Over Hope Street), I gave up the reigns.” Specifically, to indie musician and producer Alex Wong. “I knew going in that this was going to be something I wasn’t used to, but it was very much an ‘I’d like to try this’ mentality,” Hest explained. “I knew going in I would be pushed. Alex uses a lot of strings and keyboard sounds – things I’m not used to. But I left much of the arranging to Alex. I worked on writing and re-writing songs.” While he consciously stepped back in making Sunset Over Hope Street, Hest admitted the making of this record tested his patience after the immediacy of his song-a-week project. “(Sunset) was recorded over a year, in between breaks while both Alex and myself were on tour,” Hest explained. “It was a long time in the making, with a lot of time to listen back to what we had done so far. I started to get slightly impatient, because the songs were done but not finished.” Patience is a theme throughout the album, although, Hest explained, in a more personal sense. “(The title track) is essentially about being patient waiting for something new to come along when you’re just getting out of something, and also feeling happy for the other person as they move on and you try to move on,” he said. The job, now that the album is complete and

tour forthcoming, was to “recreate the album with new arrangements for two people,” Hest said, explaining that, for this tour, he’s bringing along a drummer and that’s all. “The songs stand on their own,” Hest said. “They started out this way, so they don’t require a band.” The Columbus date is early in the tour. Hest said he’s looking forward to playing these new songs for audiences. “I hope everything resonates with people in some way,” he said, sounding like a person who cares about the songs the way every good songwriter should. ■ For more from The Beat’s interview with Ari Hest, read the BeatBlog at

Pickerington pizza shop is a real heavyweight champ The reputation of Catalfino’s pizza precedes it. For over a decade, Catalfino’s took first or second place in the Slice of Columbus competition. It scored several consecutive second places in the North American Pizza and Ice Cream Show. And Catalfino’s landed in the top 10 of the American Pizza Championship. Catalfino’s business also has a storied past going back to the mid-1970s. That was when the family that still owns and operates Catalfino’s co-opened their first one-oven, two-table shop on the East Side of Columbus. Decades of success, change, expansions and relocations eventually brought Catalfino’s to its newest spot in Pickerington a couple of years ago. This latest incarnation is a big and bright, nice but casual restaurant with a decidedly sporty at-

MENU by G.A. Benton titude. There’s lots of Buckeye stuff on the walls, plus tons of TVs beaming in games and races (it’s the kind of place where a NASCAR dad gets decked out in full stock-car regalia). Largely full of happy families, Catalfino’s also has a fully stocked bar detailed with a crazy parade of flattened beer caps. A crazy parade of “Man vs. Food”-type munchies can adorn Catalfino’s pizzas, salads, sandwiches and starters if you so desire. I so desired. That’s why I picked the funky Fagiolo Fries appetizer ($6). It was a big pile of “krinkle” cutters doused in a nice, black-pep-

ican poutine, if you want, but do think of it. Also think of the Chicago Combo ($9), which the menu says is fully endorsed by The Fan’s Mike Ricordati. Here, a decent Italian beef sandwich increased its girth by the addition of a spicy sausage patty. Was it an authentic Windy City dish? Not really. Did it’s blend of “jus” (I would have liked more), griddled roast beef, spicy sausage and giardiniera (hot pickled veggies) prove Ricordati knew what he was talking about (at least in this case)? You betcha. Of course Catalfino’s topnotch pizzas are the stars. You can design your own, go with a traditional combo or pick one of the shop’s over-the-top specialties ($8.50 to $22). If you’re considering the latter, here are some uncommon things Catalfino’s

I’m generally not a fan of barbecue on pizza, but Catalfino’s Carolina pulled pork was a winner. I liked how its homemade

thick, tangy and smoky barbecue sauce complemented both the good meat and — wait for it — onion rings! Also terrific was the wellnamed Champion (ricotta, bacon, sausage, ham, pepperoni and much more). Catalfino’s menu says this pie’s won more than 20 awards in competitions, and I could see — and taste! — why. The menu also says The Fan’s Scott Torgerson declared the Spicy Italian “will be his final meal if he’s ever on Death Row.” After demolishing that irresistible grease bomb (killer spicy marinara plus double meats and cheeses), Death Row seemed almost redundant.

Warma for the shawarma: Spit-roasted meats gaining popularity Behold the vertical rotisserie, a magnificent machine that is being used by a growing number of ethnic restaurants in Columbus. Spit-roasted options are the signature dishes at such newcomers as Lavash, Pita Hut, Los Guachos and Lashish, the Greek. The electric broiler rotates a composite of meat in front of bright-orange heating lamps, which melt away fat and leave the outside golden brown and glistening with moisture. The outer shell is then sliced off per order, and often placed in a pita or is part of a larger plate ensemble.

Most everyone is at least familiar with the gyro, brown cuts of herb-flecked meat cut from the large, twirling cylinder, and garnished with shredded lettuce, onions, tomatoes and tzatziki inside a soft pita. While not new, a different brand of twirling, carnivorous delight is tempting local diners: the shawarma. Several local restaurants offer their own variations.

By Lorrie Cecil/ThisWeek

Lufti Ayoub, owner of the Pita Hut, cuts the shawarma on Feb. 26. The Pita Hut’s shawarma is seasoned with spices imported from Jerusalem.

Pita Hut in Clintonville has a Jerusalem-style, “As the ethnic population increases, these restauusing alternating layers of dark-meat turkey and rants will remain popular,” he said. lamb. Owner Lutfi Ayoub said the seasoning is Latif said the competition is good, opening up key to the alluring, complex flavor. He uses a blend diners to different cuisines and their spit-roasted of 10 herbs and spices, ground fresh in Israel and dishes. shipped to Columbus. He said he dry-rubs the “Bottom line: the customer wins,” he said. pieces of meat and marinates them, usually overnight, before placing them on the skewer for cooking. The place offers nine condiments, from hummus to cucumbers, for added flavor. “That’s the important part, always,” he said. The sauce also is a big part of the equation, says Recipe of the week Nasir Latif, owner of Lavash, also in Clintonville. He offers a simple but bold garlic sauce for his two shawarma options: a Lebanese-style using lamb and beef and a chicken selection. Latif said big beehive-shaped columns of meat pirouetting behind the counter help draw in customers. “It looks good,” he said. “It tastes good.” Shish Kebab Mediterranean Café and Café Istanbul use the rotisserie to make doner, the Turkish equivalent of gyro. Ilyas Batuk, chef and partner of Shish Kebab on Bethel Road, said the secret to excellent doner is using a good fat ratio – 25 percent – and forcefully compressing the ground beef and lamb mixture on the spit, which gives it a fine texture. “If you don’t have the fat, it’s no good,” he said. Customers seem to agree, as the doner is one of the top sellers in the restaurant. He makes 80 pounds each Friday and Saturday and another 50 pounds on Sunday, with smaller amounts during the rest of the week. Mike Polster, a partner of the Louis R.
