Planners OK psychiatric hospital — again By JENNIFER NESBITT ThisWeek Community Newspaper

Developers of a psychiatric hospital have another two years to construct an in-patient facility at the northwest corner of County Line Road West and Africa Road. The Westerville Planning Commission renewed its approval of plans for a 42,000square-foot, 64-bed psychiatric hospital on 8.85 acres at its Feb. 23 meeting.

The plans, put forth by United Psychiatric Corp., previously were approved by the planning commission in January 2008. However, the corporation failed to break ground on the property and allowed its site plan to expire after two years, in January 2010, per city code. Now, with the economy on the upswing, the company said it is ready to move forward with its plans for the inpatient facility. “We look forward to starting this proj-

ect immediately now that the economy has improved,” United Psychiatric Corp. chairman George Chopivsky said. Plans for the facility show a one-story main hospital building set back from the road at the northwest corner of the property. Two smaller office buildings would front Africa Road. Commission member Diane Fosselman cast the only no vote in the 6-1 approval at the Feb. 23 planning commission meeting.

Fosselman said she would have favored a one-year renewal but was concerned about renewing the site plans for another two years and having the property continue to sit vacant. “This is a very desirable corner, and I don’t like it having an uncertain future,” Fosselman said. “I just want to see some movement on this.” Chopivsky said the only thing that delayed development of the hospital was the economy, and now the company has

District seeks waiver on all-day kindergarten By JENNIFER NESBITT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Westerville City School district will ask the Ohio Department of Education to waive the requirement to implement an all-day, everyday kindergarten program. The school board voted unanimously at its Feb. 28 meeting to ask the state to allow the district to wait until the 2013-2014 school year to implement all-day kindergarten. Under former Gov. Ted Strickland’s House Bill 1, passed in 2009, school districts were required to implement all-day kindergarten in the 2010-2011 school year or seek a waiver. Westerville schools were awarded that waiver; recent legislation allows districts to seek another twoyear waiver. District administrators remain unsure as to whether the requirement for all-day kindergarten will be repealed by the new legislature. “Several bills have been introduced to eliminate the requirement due to the expected cuts in state funding,” district chief of academic affairs Karen McClellan said. McClellan has said Westerville would need to add an additional 21 full-time employees and 18 classrooms to accommodate an all-day kindergarten program. This would cost the district an estimated $1.98-

Developers Romanelli and Hughes has slashed the size of a condominium development proposed near the southeast corner of County Line Road and North State Street. New plans presented to the Westerville Planning Commission Feb. 23 show 18 condominiums in nine buildings on 3.8 acres to the east of 374 N. State St. In September, the developer brought a proposal before the commission for a 30-unit complex comprising three residential buildings and three garages. “We’ve come back with a much smaller project that Mr. Romanelli believes is a much better project for this site,” said David Fisher, the attorney representing Romanelli and Hughes. Though the redesigned development included fewer condominiums total, planning commission members expressed concern about a development that would introduce nine buildings to the site. “I look at this site, and it just looks packed. It looks very busy,” member Brian Szuch said. Member Diane Fosselman agreed. “Even though you’ve lowered the density, the impact of the footprint is a concern,” she said. Another concern raised by the commission was the impact on the parcel’s tree canopy. Trees cover an estimated 79 percent of the parcel, city planner Lisa LaMantia said. Per city code, 40 percent of the site must retain the tree canopy. The trees will be removed from 2.3 acres, and when trees affected by construction are replanted, the developer would be about half an acre short of the 1.2 acres that must remain, LaMantia said. Other concerns from the com-

everything in place to move forward on the development. “We were ready to go (in 2008), and then the economy dropped,” he said. Another company was set to appear before the planning commission Feb. 23 with a proposal for a 40,000-square-foot psychiatric hospital on 8 acres in the Altair development, south of Polaris Parkway and west of Africa Road.

mission included that the development would add a curb cut across the bike path that follows County Line Road and that the architecture is not four-sided or ideal. “After reading the material, I had high hopes, and then I opened it up and all I saw were garage doors,” member Amy Koorn said of the architectural renderings. The planning commission did not enumerate so many concerns about the plans the company presented in September. “It’s almost better to go back to the other one,” commission chairman Gerald Domanik said. However, Domanik said, the city has worked well with Romanelli and Hughes before, and he said he trusts the company to solve problems brought up by the commission. “I know the applicant has been in these situations before,” he said. There is also a small stream at the south of the property that faces problems with overflow and erosion. The company is funding a study to make necessary fixes to the impact the development would have on the stream, Fisher said. Because that study has not been finished, Romanelli and Hughes did not seek a vote on the proposed development Feb. 23. The company plans to return with a more detailed development proposal as early as the planning commission’s next meeting on March 23.

million, most of which would be recurring expenses, she said. The district did place a poll on its website to gauge public opinion on all-day kindergarten, McClellan said. Of the 543 people who responded, 35.5 percent said the district should implement an all-day kindergarten program regardless of costs, 25.4 percent said the district should continue to plan all-day kindergarten but stop implementation if the state requirement were removed and 18 percent said the district should wait to see what happens with state funding before deciding whether to implement an all-day program. Ten percent of respondents said the survey did not present their opinions as an option. Nevertheless, the district’s administration recommended that the board move forward in seeking the waiver, in large part because of the cost. “At this point, it’s just not something that we can do,” school board member Kevin Hoffman said. Board president Kristi Robbins said the problem with the allday kindergarten requirement is that the state attached no funding to help districts with its implementation, meaning the burden for the program would have to fall to local taxpayers. “When we talk about unfunded mandates, this is the perfect example,” Robbins said. Superintendent Dan Good said the evidence-based model put forth in H.B. 1 would eliminates other programs that theoretically would have allowed districts to put money toward all-day kindergarten, but ultimately, there are no immediate funds for implementation. “The outcome is the same: In the end, there are no new dollars to support an additional program,” Good said. Requests for waivers are not due to the state until June 1, McClellan said, and the district expects to get its request in much earlier than that. She said the district should hear whether its request has been approved with three weeks of submitting it. “We are grateful for the opportunity to request a waiver,” Robbins said. jnesbitt@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekNEWS.com

Even with those accomplishments, he said, the district is looking to improve and plans to focus on helping students whose achievement is not where it should be. “We recognize that we still have individual students, student groups and schools that are not growing quickly enough to demonstrate ‘adequate yearly progress,’” Good said. “We will continue to focus our energies on nurturing a year’s worth of growth in each student.” Good said other district achievements in 2010 include having all three high schools recognized by Newsweek magazine as among the top high schools in the country, and having English as a Second Language (ESL) students meet all three state requirements as set by No Child Left Behind. Students also have shown a high level of service, Good said: The Westerville South girls volleyball team raised $7,000 for the Stephanie Spielman Fund for

Breast Cancer Research; students donated more than 200 pounds of fresh food to the Westerville Area Resource Ministry through the district’s community garden; and the three high schools raised $39,465 for Westerville Caring and Sharing. School board president Kristi Robbins highlighted the district’s Educational Opportunity for Success program, an 11-year-old program that helps at-risk high school students earn their diplomas. Over the past three years, Robbins said, enough students in the program have graduated in order to add nine percentage points to the district’s graduation rate. With the help of a grant, that program will expand and move from portable classrooms at Westerville North High School to 336 S. Otterbein Ave. Administrators whose offices

Walmart store really isn’t needed in ‘heart of the city’ To the editor: Does Westerville really need a Walmart? There’s one in Lewis Center (about seven miles) and one in Easton (about 6.5 miles). Isn’t that close enough? The proposed location is near one of the most congested intersections in Westerville and is adjacent to a residential neighborhood. It will increase traffic around and through the neighborhood, and I wouldn’t think the many small business owners in

Westerville are looking foward to competing with a Walmart for business. I understand the need to find a tenant for a long-vacant building, but I find it hard to believe that this is the best option. There is an abundance of property available in the Polaris area, in the midst of established businesses, that would be better suited for Walmart. Just a few years ago, Walmart proposed to locate in the developing business area of Po-

laris/Maxtown Road and Westerville turned them down. So now it’s OK, in a more congested and residential area? The plans also state it will be a 24-hour store — that will surely be disruptive to the nearby residents. There is absolutely no need for three Walmarts within a 15-mile radius and Westerville certainly doesn’t need one in the heart of the city. Liesa Cordi Westerville

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 SpanishAmerican 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 — AbleBodied 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 ED number of LENTZ 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 pol-

ished 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 tuberculosis 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. ...

Series of events AS IT WERE will mark Civil War anniversary

ThisWeek Classified: (740) 888-5003

Continued from page A4

By JENNIFER NESBITT ThisWeek Community Newspaper

The groups that collaborated to create the city’s sesquicentennial anniversary celebration two years ago has come together to help mark the 150th anniversary of the start of the Civil War. The Westerville Public Library, Westerville Historical Society, the Westerville Department of Recreation and Parks and the Westerville Visitors and Convention Bureau have created a yearlong list of events on Civil War history and the role Westerville played. “The reason we decided to do it is because there were so many people who were impacted by the Civil War from Westerville,” said Beth Weinhardt, local history coordinator for the library. “We had a lot of people who were veterans of the war, and we had a lot of families who were impacted. “The men were away, and there were farm families where the children and the wife had to pick up all of the stuff the father did while he was away,” she said. “We also had some cases where the father didn’t come home again. … We had a lot of Otterbein students who left to go fight.” Events range from lectures and presentations to the parks and recreation department’s live-action recreation of the Underground Railroad to an American Girl tea party at the library. “We really have tried to do things for all ages,” Weinhardt said. “Of course, that’s kind of something the library does, parks and

rec does and the Visitors and Convention Bureau does with their Fourth Fridays. We’re all used to varied audience groups.” One of the highlights will be the return of Ohio Chautauqua, which will present its Civil War program in Westerville from June 30 through July 4. The Chautauqua, which also visited Westerville for the city’s sesquicentennial in 2008, includes evening entertainment and living history performances and daytime history workshops. “It’s a popular program in many communities around the state,” Weinhardt said. “That’s definitely something for all ages when that comes.” Scheduled events are: • Civil War-era Clothing: Fashion Show and Try-it-On: 2 p.m. March 5 at the Westerville Public Library, 126 S. State St. Presented by the Ohio Historical Society, the event will showcase clothing from the 1860s and allow participants to try on garments. • Meet the Civil War Tea Lady: 4 p.m. March 19 at the Westerville Public Library. Civil War reenactor Kay Ruley will talk about women’s lives and duties during the Civil War while participants enjoy rose-geranium cake and tea. Sponsored by the Friend of the Library, the event is for people ages 8 and older. Call (614) 882-7277. • The Home Front: 7:30 p.m. March 25 at the Westerville Public Library.

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, frost-defying 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.

Though Westerville City Schools have surpassed the stateallotted three calamity days, Superintendent Dan Good said he does not anticipate that the district will need to make up any additional days. Westerville took its fourth calamity day on Feb. 25. Two bills have been introduced in the state legislature — Senate Bill 18 and House Bill 36 — that would return the number of calamity days to five. The state mandate was reduced to three for this school year. Good said he expects one of those bills to pass, saving the district from having to make up any days at this point. “There’s been very little opposition from legislators,” he said. Even with the passage of those bills, the district could only cancel classes one more time without being required to make up days. Even if a bill is approved, the school district would have to make up days for morning kindergarten, which is canceled when there is a two-hour delay. Morning kindergarten had used six calamity days.

easy process because the morning classes are generally just combined with afternoon kindergarten. Making up days districtwide would require a process to be decided by the district’s calendar committee. That would have been difficult to do before graduation on May 28, Good said. “(Morning kindergarten is) not as difficult to make up as our senior class,” he said. “We really didn’t have a lot of room to make that up before graduation.” Good said, the district would not be able to hand out actual diplomas at graduation if there are still instruction days that need to be made up. Also in regard to calamity days, Good said the district had set a goal of canceling classes as early as possible this year in order to give students and parents as much warning as possible. That was difficult on Feb. 25, he said, because after it rained all night, the rain turned to ice and then to snow later in the morning.

Robbins said the district continues to be successful because of the efforts of the community. “It really does take a village to raise a child and people are proud to be associated with the Westerville City School District, thanks to the collective efforts of many,” Robbins said. CHAMBER OF COMMERCE Speaking for the Westerville Area Chamber of Commerce, chairman of the board Travis Sanders said the organization continues to focus on networking and bringing its 680 business and individual members together. “We want every business to attend chamber events and meet other businesses to build productive business relationships,” he said. Sanders said the chamber also served its members in 2010 through its cost-savings services. In 2010, he said, 99 businesses saved $222,268 on health insurance through the “group rated”

program. Thirty-four chamber businesses had an average savings of $1,636 in workers compensation, and members participating in the group-rated office supply program saved an average of 58 percent, Sanders said. Chamber president and CEO Janet Tressler-Davis said the chamber’s board worked in 2010 on strategic planning, revising the chamber’s mission. “As we work to advance our members’success in business, focusing on the vision of connecting every business to every opportunity, goals were developed and will be a driving force moving the chamber forward,” she said. Tressler-Davis said the chamber will focus on connecting and engaging Westerville businesses. Supporting and retaining businesses is especially important in a down economy, she said. “We need to support each other and promote the fact that it is good business to do business with Westerville-area businesses,” TresslerDavis said.

ness affairs Rebecca VazquezSkillings said Otterbein has many positives to share as the university continues to grow. Otterbein will be working with Tufts, Georgetown and three other universities to focus on experience-based learning and its benefits, Vazquez-Skillings said. “The work of Otterbein’s faculty will be highlighted across the country to help other universities understand how to harness the transformative power of hands-on learning,” she said. The university will take another leap forward this spring, Vazquez-Skillings said, when it offers its first doctorate program, the Doctor of Nursing Practice degree. And as the university transitions from quarters to semesters, Vazquez-Skillings said, more opportunities will arise to offer more programs in a year’s time. “Whether it’s more time here during the holidays or an even livelier summer schedule, Otterbein’s campus will be busier year-round, adding the distinctive hum our stuOTTERBEIN UNIVERSITY dents and their families bring to Otterbein vice president of busi- Westerville,” she said.

Have You Heard? by Greg VanHorssen QUICK ACTION CAN SAVE SICK CHILD’S HEARING While the number of cases of pneumococcal meningitis has decreased since the introduction of the PCV7 vaccine in 2001, the disease continues to afflict some youngsters. However, quick action can help restore the hearing of children who become deaf after developing pneumococcal meningitis. Among those left without hearing by the disease, the cochlea tends to harden into bone with the passage of time. As a result, it is difficult to fit these children with cochlear implants. (The cochlea is the inner ear structure that detects pressure impulses and translates them into electrical impulses, which travel along the auditory nerve to the brain.) If cochlear implants are provided within days of a meningitis diagnosis, children’s hearing can be saved. Hearing loss can adversely affect the development of language and social skills in young children. An audiological evaluation can determine whether a child is a candidate for a cochlear implant. During the evaluation, a hearing test is conducted to determine the type and degree of the child’s hearing loss, and whether a hearing aid might provide greater benefit than an implant. At ABSOLUTE HEARING SOLUTIONS, we are dedicated to serving the needs of hearing impaired people of all ages. Please call us today at 614-654-4309 to schedule a hearing evaluation. We are located at 1000 Morrison Rd., Suite H, Gahanna.

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 www.ThisWeekNews.com.

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-

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).

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.

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.

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.

Uptown

Actors studio to open March 8 By JENNIFER NESBITT ThisWeek Community Newspaper

Westerville’s art scene is expanding. Professional actor John Hawk will open the John Hawk Actors Studio March 8 at 20 S. State St. There will be an open house at the studio from 1 to 5 p.m. March 6. Hawk has worked as an actor for more than 20 years in commercials, movies and theater. He moved back to Ohio four years ago and said he hopes to create the same feel in his studio that he experienced in similar studios in New York and Las Angeles. “I’ve been fortunate to work with a lot of great teachers. The experience I had, it was incredible,” Hawk said. “Seeing someone laughing hysterically, crying hysterically — I loved it. I hope to recreate what I miss.” After the open house, the studio will hold classes for those 18 and older each Tuesday and Thurs-

day evening. The classes will cover acting exercises, breathing and relaxation techniques, cold reading, freeze reading, scene studies and audition techniques. Since his return to Ohio, Hawk said, he has been surprised to find so many opportunities available to actors in his home state. “I thought I was leaving acting behind. It was refreshing that there was as much work as there is in Columbus and all of Ohio,” he said. Hawk said he has three films coming out later this year, including “Seven Songs About Thunder,” “Season of Darkness” and “The Greater Meaning of Water.” While the actors studio will aim to help local artists with their craft, Hawk said he also hopes running the classes will help him grow as an artist. “I believe that every good teacher learns from his students, so I’m hoping to take even my act-

ing to another level by getting back to the fundamentals and seeing other people have their own breakthroughs,” he said. The Westerville resident said he had set the goal of opening an actors studio, and while walking through Uptown, he noticed the vacant storefront. “It was really ideal for what I wanted. It seemed perfect,” Hawk said. Hawk renovated the interior to make it into to make a comfortable environment for actors. “It’s night and day from what it was,” he said. “It just grew into what it is, and I think it’s an ideal space for the class.” Classes at the studio will be limited to 12 people. “A lot of the teaching will be individualized, but it is all levels. I don’t want to deter people who are like, ‘Well, I’m not an actor,’” Hawk said. More information is available at www.johnkhawk.com.

Wildcats’ Pannell rolls 300 at district By FRANK DiRENNA 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 Friday, March 4, and Saturday, March 5, at Wayne Webb’s Columbus Bowl. Meanwhile, Westerville South soph-

omore 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 state-

qualifying 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,” Cen-

tral 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 See BOWLING, page C5

Warriors sending pair to state By FRANK DiRENNA ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Westerville North High School senior wrestler Stephen Alger knew this was his final opportunity to reach the Division I state tournament. After splitting his first two matches at the district tournament Feb. 25-26 at Hilliard Darby, Alger won his final four matches to finish third at 135 pounds and earn a berth at the state tournament, which is Thursday-Saturday, March 3-5, at Ohio State. Alger, who was 5-1 on the weekend, pinned Olentangy Liberty’s Anthony Michael (1 minute, 42 seconds) in the third-place match. Michael had defeated Alger 8-3 in a quarterfinal. “The loss made me want to work a lot harder,” said Alger, a four-time district qualifier. “I figured this is my last time, and I had to try as hard as I can.” Alger (26-9) will be joined at state by sophomore teammate Joe Herrera, who finished third at 112 at district. Herrera won his first two matches before losing to Dublin Coffman’s Ryan Murdock 8-1 in a semifinal. Murdock went on to win the title, defeating Miamisburg’s Jordan Branham 10-0 in the final. Herrera, who also will be making his first state tournament appearance, won his next two matches to finish 4-1 and secure third. Herrera (27-6) defeated Franklin Heights’ Jon Bloss 120 in the third-place match. Alger, who is ranked 16th in Brian Brakeman’s High School Wrestling Forecast, will open against Canton McKinley junior Ruben Burrows. Burrows is 34-4 and 13th in the Brakeman Report. “I’m really excited,” Alger said. “This is my first time ever at state. It’s been a life goal of mine. I want to place high. Joe and I are going to work out really hard and do the right things, eat right and rest. We’re going to do everything we can to achieve our goals.” Herrera, who also is 16th in the Brakeman Report, will oppose Oregon Clay’s Mike Screptock (35-6) in the first round. Screptock is ninth in the Brakeman Report. “I definitely wanted to go to state last year, but I’m finally there,” Herrera said. “I just want to get my face on the wall. I want to place. I just have to work harder than I’ve worked all year. I have to get my mind right and I think I’ll be good.” The state place finishers from North are recognized by having a plaque displayed at the school. The Warriors finished 14th at district (46 points) behind firstplace Liberty (128.5). Senior Ryan Ouzts was 2-2 on the weekend at 130 and finished the season at 25-4. Junior Trey Fisher (21-11) was 0-2 at 145 and senior Mitch Cousins (24-12) was 0-2 at

Schuttinger placed 15th in the 100 free (53.17) and teamed with Schwartz, sophomore Marissa Kramer and Thompson to place 14th in the 200 free relay (1:39.73). “This is amazing.

North boys again must clear Gahanna hurdle By SCOTT HENNEN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

For the past two seasons, Westerville North High School boys basketball coach Kevin Thuman and Gahanna coach Tony Staib have had a predetermined date set aside in the Fairgrounds Coliseum. In 2009, Thuman and his Warriors defeated Gahanna 55-53 in a Division I district semifinal. The Lions exacted some revenge last season with a 60-54 overtime victory in a district final. At 8:45 p.m. Saturday, March 5, the teams have another appointment at the Fairgrounds in a district semifinal. “After the tournament draw, I saw Tony as we were walking out and he told me that we would have to stop meeting like this,” Thuman said. “We each have won once, so this is the rubber game.” The fourth-seeded Lions are 21-1 while ninth-seeded North is 17-5. Gahanna is led by 5-foot-11 senior point guard Stevie Taylor, an Ohio University signee who averages 16.1 points per game. Jamel Morris, a 6-2 guard, averages 10.1 points and 6-3 forward Trey Warr scores By Chris Parker/ThisWeek 7.2 per game.

North reached a district semifinal by winning a pair of early round games. The Warriors defeated Marysville 62-35 in the first round Feb. 23 at Delaware.

Wildcats boys finding ways to utilize depth By JEREMY STEWART ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Westerville South High School boys basketball team hasn’t had a problem this season trying to find playing time for everyone. South has won 14 games by at least 18 points. In a 99-34 win over Watkins Memorial in the second round of the Division I district tournament Feb. 25, the starters sat for all but a few minutes in the second half. “The way we split up teams in practice, there is no starting five,” said guard Donnie Fitzgerald, who comes off the bench. “(Coach Ed Calo) makes everybody be on the same teams in practice. What we’re trying to do is we’re trying to make it so everyone can get in the game. We’re not trying to make it so the starting five never comes out.” There was also a lot of playing time to spread around when South opened the tournament with a 70-24 win over Lancaster on Feb. 22. The Wildcats, who are 21-1, could

get its first true test of the district tournament against Pickerington Central on Saturday, March 5, in a district semifinal in the Fairground Coliseum. A year ago, the Wildcats’ season ended in the district semifinal round as they fell to Marion-Franklin 66-57. A rematch with 11th-seeded MarionFranklin was thwarted after Central beat the Red Devils 64-62 in the first round on Feb. 22. Central then beat Independence 58-48 on Feb. 25 to improve to 12-10. Leading the way was guards Caris Levert (22 points) and Chad Nelson (17). The Tigers also can present a size mismatch with 6-foot-6 center Jacob Flora and 6-5 forward Manny Harrison. “They’re long, and they’re talented,” said Calo of Central. “We expected to see Marion-Franklin, but (Pickerington) Central took care of them. They have really improved as the season has gone on. They’re starting real young kids, and now they’re starting to believe a little bit. They’re coming in with emotion and momentum, and it will

be a great test for us.” The Tigers have won four of five games and are 6-3 since Feb. 1. “We’ve grown up,” first-year Central coach Jerry Francis said. “February’s been busy, but it’s been a good month in terms of our development.” The winner plays March 11 at the Fairgrounds against fifth-seeded Pickerington North or eighth-seeded New Albany. South hasn’t played in a district final since winning it in 2008 on the way to a regional runner-up finish. To get there the Wildcats have to overcome the mental hurdle that is playing in a Fairgrounds Coliseum known for being tough on shooters that can’t adjust to the venue’s cavernous feel.

consecutive games. The Wildcats started to find a formula for success at season’s end. The strong effort against Brookhaven was preceded by a 52-39 win over Teays Valley in a first round game on Feb. 19 and a 6259 victory over Lancaster in the regular-season finale on Feb. 12. South was sixth in the OCC-Cardinal behind Olentangy (12-2), Dublin Scioto (10-4), North (9-5), Dublin Jerome (7-7) and Central (7-7) and ahead of Marysville (3-11) and Olentangy Liberty (3-11). South will lose two seniors in Breyona Colley and Rena Pele. Expected back are juniors Erica Aiello (second-team all-OCC-Cardinal), Nikia Buckingham, Lindsey Gerhart (honorable mention all-OCC-Cardinal), Alex Hall, Rylee Holman, Cori McClain, Morgan Neighbors (first-team all-OCC-Cardinal) and Sydney Sharp, sophomore Marley Stash Brianna Wendell and freshman Jada Smoot. www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com

Also competing at state were Staab in the 500 free (5:10.82, 20th) and Thompson in the 50 free (24.74, 23rd) and 100 free (53.96, 13th). “At every state meet, you have your ups and downs, but overall we had more ups than downs,” coach Staab said. •South sophomore Riley Buer continues to climb up the awards podium at state in the 100 breast. Last year, she tied Loveland’s Sammie Wheeler for 12th (1:07.48). This year, she finished eighth (1:05.99). “This sets up really well for next year,” Buer said. “If I keep up my training, I think I have a chance to do well next year, and I’m looking forward to that.” Buer was seeded eighth this year after placing second at district Feb. 19 at Ohio State in 1:05.18. She was sixth after swimming 1:05.84 in the preliminary at state. “I was really nervous behind the blocks,” Buer said, referring to the championship heat in this year’s state meet. “I’m swimming with all the best swimmers in Ohio. But once I dove into the water, all my training that I put into the race kicked in. I did what I was trained to do.” “(Making the championship heat) is really big for Riley,” coach Kevin Kissling said. “She’s so committed to the sport and to training. It’s nice to have someone who deserves these opportunities to get these opportunities.” Buer’s performance garnered 11 points, allowing the South girls team to finish 38th. A lingering illness might have prevented sophomore Jared Hig-

Guard Damarkeo Lyshe blatantly dismissed the notion that the setting could affect South. “No,” said Lyshe, who led South with 17 points in the win over Watkins Memorial. “We can adapt.” •The girls team had its season end with a 47-38 loss to sixth-seeded Brookhaven on Feb. 25 in the second round of the Division I district tournament. Coach Silas Williams called the game the best that his team had played this season. The Wildcats were outscored 14-9 in the second quarter. “We knew they were tough on the backboard,” said Williams, whose team finished 8-13 overall and 5-9 in the OCC-Cardinal Division. “We had a pretty good game plan going in. We executed well. The only thing we didn’t do was rebound.” The season was a learning experience. Not only was it Williams’ first as coach, the Wildcats had to make up for the loss of an experienced core. The result was a fast start followed by a midseason lull in which South lost eight

don from advancing to the finals at state in the 100 fly and 200 individual medley. After missing a couple days of training after coming down with the flu after the district meet, Higdon added 1.22 seconds to his time in the 100 fly time and 2.88 seconds to his time in the 200 IM in the state preliminaries. Higdon finished 18th in the 200 IM (1:59.4) and 19th in the 100 fly (53.03). He did not score at state. “Jared was a little run down after the district meet and a lit-

tle off his best,” Kissling said. “It’s tough coming back after an illness any time, but especially after the district meet. I know he would have liked to have seen himself swim faster, but (at this level) everyone else wants to be faster. “The rest of the kids on our team are motivated by the kids who are here. They’re looking for ways to make themselves faster for next season all ready.” pbatterson@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com

Westerville Central High School boys basketball coach Todd Minney has labeled his team’s late-season success “a journey.” The Warhawks will continue that journey when they face third-seeded Upper Arlington in a Division I district semifinal at 2:30 p.m. Saturday, March 5, in the Fairgrounds Coliseum. UA, which had a first-round bye, defeated Thomas Worthington 59-55 in the second round Feb. 25 at Hilliard Bradley to improve to 20-1. The Golden Bears’ lone setback was a 5549 overtime loss to Dublin Coffman on Feb. 18. The Bears and Shamrocks shared the OCCCentral Division title at 13-1. UA is led by 5-foot-11 senior guard Brian Sullivan, a Miami University recruit who is averaging 21.3 points. Other key players for the Bears are 59 junior guard Carter Smith and 6-5 senior post player Wes Richter, who are averaging 12.9 and 11.9 points, respectively. Central has played UA only once, losing to the Bears 50-47 in the first round of the 2008 district tournament. “They have three OCC firstteam players,” coach Todd Minney said of Sullivan, Smith and Richter. “They’re really good on the interior with their size. They have a great shooter in Sullivan and he’s not the only shooter. They do a great job running their sets. They’re super disciplined. I know they’re going to be extremely prepared, just like they

were the last time that they beat us in the tournament. We’re looking forward to playing them.” “Central is a good team,” UA coach Tim Casey said. “They’re well-coached, very athletic and play hard. They have all the pieces. They have size, they have ball skills and they defend at a really high level. Todd does a great job, so it’s certainly going to be a chore for our guys. They know that.” The Central-UA winner plays second-seeded Northland or 13th-seeded Olentangy Liberty in a district final at 9 p.m. March 11 at the Fairgrounds. Central defeated 10th-seeded Olentangy Orange 58-46 in the second round Feb. 25 at Bradley to improve to 16-6, marking its eighth consecutive win. The Warhawks opened the tournament with a 70-57 win over 12th-seeded Mount Vernon 7057 on Feb. 22 at Jonathan Alder. “This is part of the steppingstone,” Minney said. “We talk about the journey a lot with these guys. We know the goal eight games ago was to finish out the season without a loss. This is a process for us and a journey, and the journey is just starting.” Against Mount Vernon, the Warhawks used an 11-4 run early in

the fourth quarter to take control. Kamorin Harris led a balanced attack with 15 points. Max Shawver came off the bench and provided a spark, finishing with 14 points. Quentin Henderson had 12 points and Nick Vannett and Christian Graves scored 11 apiece. Against Orange, Central trailed 17-7 after the first quarter but trimmed its deficit to 3635 after three quarters. Harris took over in the fourth quarter, scoring 14 of his teamhigh 20 points as the Warhawks outscored Orange 25-12 over the final eight minutes. Vannett added 11 points. “The team said we have to lock up (defensively) and somebody has to start making plays and the team believed in me to make plays, so I had to make plays,” Harris said. “Kam is phenomenal,” Minney said. “I’ve been coaching quite a while and he’s my most favorite kid that I’ve ever coached. I love him as a person and I’m happy for the success that he gets.” •Among the highlights for the girls team was winning its first Division I district tournament game under third-year coach Doug Etgen. Central defeated Briggs 56-39 in the first round of the tournament Feb. 16 at Hamilton Township before losing to seventhseeded Gahanna 44-15 in the second round Feb. 23 at Olentangy to finish 10-12 overall. Senior Aly Jurcenko, who was second-team all-OCC-Cardinal, scored 10 points against Gahanna. See CENTRAL, page C4

twice. The last meeting was in 2009, when DeSales won 72-46 on the way to a state semifinal. After losing to Watterson 6048 in the regular-season finale Feb. 18, the third-seeded Stallions rebounded with a 71-43 win over London in a secondround tournament game Feb. 26. The Stallions and Eastmoor both had first-round byes. Eastmoor, which is seeded seventh, defeated Whitehall 60-32 in a second-round game Feb. 26. Coach Blair Albright said he’s concerned with Eastmoor’s ball pressure. “They’re a team that is extremely physical and tough,” said Albright, whose team is 156. “We have to be concerned with their physicality on the ball. When they’ve had success against us is when they’ve been able to get pressure on us. “We’ve had success when our guys have been attacking up the floor. It’s sort of a situation where you have to fight a fire with fire and go right at them.” Leading Eastmoor are guards Daivon Barrow (9.2 points per game), Doug Richey (10.4) and Ron Tanner (8.5) and forward John Draper (10.4). DeSales used a balanced scoring attack against London, led by Tevin Cox’s 14 points. Charles Chandler (13 points), Clinton James (11) and Kenny Cooper (10) gave DeSales four players in double figures. The Stallions do not have a player averaging in double figures in points. “That’s nice because we’re not too reliant on one guy to do everything,” Albright said. “We have to get everyone involved.” The winner plays at 9 p.m. March 10 in a district final at the Fairgrounds against sixthseeded Granville or Mifflin. •The eighth-seeded girls basketball team played third-seeded Hilliard Bradley in a Division II district semifinal March 1.

The Stallions opened the tournament with a 65-43 win over Sparta Highland on Feb. 15 before beating seventh-seeded Bexley 46-43 on Feb. 23. “You obviously hope you can hit a stride when the tournament comes,” coach Brian Cromwell said. “Even with some losses at the end of the year we started to play well, especially defensively. We still have to knock down more shots. We shot about 28 percent against Bexley.” The district semifinal winner plays in a district final against top-seeded Olentangy or Lakewood at 8:30 p.m. Thursday, March 3, at Ohio Dominican.

The winner of that contest plays on Tuesday, March 8, in a regional semifinal at Springfield against Cincinnati Indian Hill or Dayton Carroll. The regional semifinal winner returns to Springfield on March 11 to play in a regional final against Cincinnati Wyoming, Dayton Chaminade Julienne, Kettering Alter or Springfield Kenton Ridge. •Cooper Staton of the swimming and diving team concluded his high school career at the Division II state meet on Feb. 25 in Canton. After winning the state title in the 50-yard freestyle (20.98 seconds) last year, Staton finished second in the 50 free (20.75) behind Hunting Valley University School’s Andrew Malone (20.5) and was third in the 100 free (47.1) as Canal Winchester’s Sam Decker (46.1) won. The 200 free relay of Will Gish, Edward Cordek, James Walsh and Staton was 15th (1:33.68) behind champion University School (1:24.64). The

Dispatch 3-11

Members of the DeSales High School gymnastics team were devastated when they learned that senior classmate and former teammate Milena DiMichaelangelo died unexpectedly Feb. 18 at age 17. DiMichaelangelo competed for the Stallions as a freshman and sophomore and had remained friends with many of her former teammates. DeSales was sluggish and unfocused 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 Coffman (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) behind Hilliard Darby’s Meghan Parsley (35.55) 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 meet on Friday, March 4, at Hilliard Bradley. The top eight finishers in each event, including the all-around, will compete in the individual state meet on Saturday, March 5, at Bradley. DeSales finished eighth (134.85) at state last year behind champion BrecksvilleBroadview 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 the top six in at least one event, too.” Miltko said she was looking forward to the competition. “When you’re in the district, you see the same people all the time and at state you get to see everyone and really go against a lot of good people that you normally don’t see,” she said. •The boys basketball team plays Eastmoor Academy in a Division II district semifinal at 6 p.m. Friday, March 4, at the Fairgrounds Coliseum.

I’m really proud of these girls.” Junior guard/forward Ellie Vosler (5-7) had her season end after 12 games because of a concussion.

We were 4-8 at one time and to finish 10-12, I’m happy and satisfied. Double digits in wins is right around where we thought we’d be.” Along with Jurcenko, other seniors are Rachel Dolby, Abby King, Tiana Overton, Bri Pond, Andrea Thomas and Tabbytha Walker. “More than the loss, you just think it’s the end for seven seniors that were close, so that’s probably rougher than actually the game itself,” Etgen said. “It’s a great group of girls to work with. It was a pleasure coaching them.” “I’m happy with the season, but we should have ended better than we did,” Jurcenko said.

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 31 in the best-of-five 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 four-time 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
