Changes proposed to city audit panel By LISA AURAND ThisWeek Community Newspapers Two Grove City Council members want to beef up the city’s audit committee to improve oversight of the city budget. Council president Ted Berry and council member Steve Bennett on March 7 introduced a resolution that would re-

quire audit committee members to include at least one certified professional accountant and two others with some financial background. The amendment also would add a standard of expected ethics. It would require the committee to respond to management letters from the state auditor. It would include on the committee the clerk of council, the city administrator and

city finance director. A vote on the resolution was delayed after mayor Richard “Ike” Stage requested an amendment to the motion. Stage introduced a “whereas” clause indicating the role of annual audits, but Berry and Bennett said that the clause was unnecessary. “State audits are not necessarily ... looking for operational procedures,”

Stage said March 8. “In my personal case, I was really assuming more was being done and more was being disclosed by the state auditor than what may have been (disclosed),” he said. During the meeting, Stage cited numerous awards the city has earned over the years for its financial reporting. He said the changes Berry and Bennett proposed basically would fire all current

audit committee members. “Without question, we need to tighten up the role of the audit committee, but we ought to do it so we can get it done in one shot,” Stage said. Berry said he planned to contact the state auditor’s office March 8 to ask what those awards mean and the exact scope See CHANGES, page A2

City police chief Wise announces retirement

Grove City police chief Joe Wise has announced he will retire March 25. City administrator Phil Honsey on March 8 said the city hopes to name Wise’s successor from among those now in the police department. The position is a civil service job, so the department’s only captain and two lieutenants will be invited to take a competitive examination. Those who pass will be considered for the chief position, Honsey said. “We will test as quickly as we can, but there will probably be a need for an interim chief for some period of time,” he said. Honsey said that he’s enjoyed his time working with Wise. “I started with the city in 2009, so I’ve only been here two years now, but I have thoroughly enjoyed working with chief Wise. I respect him,” Honsey said. “His No. 1 concern is to do right by the people of Grove City.” Wise, 54, has been with the Grove City police for more than 27 years and has been chief since 2008. He graduated from Grove City High School in 1975 and is a 1978 graduate of the Ohio State Highway Patrol Basic Academy. He also completed the Police Executive Leadership College and the Northwestern University Traffic Institute School of Staff and Command. He earned an associate degree in law enforcement at Columbus State Community College in 1979 while working as a police officer for the city of Whitehall. He began his career in Grove City in 1976 as a part-time police dispatcher. Wise said he decided to retire now because he was offered a new position elsewhere. “I had a contact from a private sector company last October that asked if I would be interested submitting a resume. About two weeks ago I was made an offer and decided to take it,” Wise said, declining

Library adds hours, workers, materials after levy passes By LISA AURAND ThisWeek Community Newspapers Southwestern Public Libraries have expanded hours, hired employees, and purchased books and materials since the district’s first operating levy passed in November. The 10-year, 1-mill levy, which is expected to generate $2.6-million this

year, passed with 58 percent “yes” votes after seven failed levy attempts. The library previously had received 95 percent of its funding from the state. Between 2007 and 2009, the state cut its budget by 31 percent. Before the levy passed, the library closed one of its three buildings, cut hours by about a third, cut purchase of new materials by 75 percent and cut

its staff by about 35 percent. Those employees who remained went 10 years without a pay raise. Additionally, mandatory furloughs cut their pay by about 10 percent. Under the reduced hours, the branches opened at 10 a.m. They closed at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, 3 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 8 p.m. other weekdays. Library hours now are 9:30 a.m. to

Citizens academy to show police procedure By LISA AURAND ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Grove City residents can get an indepth look at the inner workings of their local police department during the city’s first citizens police academy. The free, 10-week course will be held Thursday evenings beginning March 24.

“Citizens police academies have been around for years. We’ve just never done one here in Grove City,” said Lt. Jeff Pearson. “We tried it a few years ago and there just wasn’t enough interest.” The department hopes to enroll up to 15 residents ages 18 and older for the class, which is designed to give participants an understanding of po-

lice operations and procedures. “It’s a partnership with the community to open up our doors and educate the public, especially people that don’t understand police work or why we do the things we do,” Pearson said. “It’s an educational thing so they can maybe understand law enforce-

Library adds hours, workers, materials Continued from page A1

“We aren’t hiring any administrative positions at all, only public service,” Shaw said. New positions in cataloging were added so that the library can stay on top of its new materials. With the levy’s passage, the library increased its materials annual budget from $75,000 to $500,000. “That was huge. … The department is busy down there cataloging lots of boxes.” Shaw said. “It was empty for so many years. It’s exciting to see the new materials coming in and all of the boxes.”

Amy Shaw said. “As soon as the levy passed, that was the No. 1 question we received.” Expanded hours began Jan. 31, and that change alone required the creation of 15 new positions, Shaw said. “We have been hiring fast and furiously,” Shaw said. To staff the expanded hours, the library has added positions in maintenance, circulation, reference and outreach.

quitos and specifically test for West Nile virus, as well as other diseases mosquitoes may spread.” Grove City is one of the last Franklin County municipalities to enter into the agreement, Honsey said. City service director Les Spring said the contract, which runs through 2013, gives the city the flexibility to continue its own fogging treatment if it doesn’t find Vector’s treatments as effective. If Vector’s treatments alone control the mosquito population, Spring estimated the city would save about $10,000 a year on chemicals, equipment and labor. The next council meeting will be at 7 p.m. March 21 in council chambers in City Hall.

of the state’s annual audits. “The management letters (from 2001-2003) indicate that theft could occur. Therefore the question arises, ‘Why was the problem not looked into then?” Berry said. Also at the meeting, council agreed to contract with the Franklin County Health District and Vector Disease Control International LLC for mosquito management services. Vector provides targeted treatment and attempts to control mosquito populations while the insects are still in their larval state, city administrator Phil Honsey said. “They will also be able to … trap adult mos-

As it were

Some of the basics taught ‘office boys’ still good today About a century ago, Columbus, like much of the rest of America, was coping with change. A mostly rural agricultural society was rapidly becoming an urban and industrial nation. The process had begun shortly after the end of the American Civil War and would not really end until well into the 20th century. In fact, it would not be until well into the 1920s that most Ohioans would be living in or near its large cities. But at the turn of the century, the great need of new businesses was not simply for more workers with strong backs and boundless energy, although such people would always be welcome. Just as important was the need for a whole new generation of white collar workers to help handle the administrative and managerial tasks of the new world of “modern business.” In an era when most young people did not go much beyond the eighth grade in the public school system, large numbers of students missed out on the useful training that a “business course” in Columbus’s one and only high school could provide. But the need for young people in the new offices created by new businesses was still there. To meet that need, other community organizations tried to be of help. Important among them was the Young Men’s Christian Association or YMCA. Brought to Columbus in 1855 by Henry B. Carrington — a man who would later go on to some renown in the Civil War and the Indian Wars that followed — the YMCA became an important social organization. By 1893, it had established itself in a nice building at 30 S. Third St. in Columbus. In this building, young men could participate in physical education programs, religious meetings and a wide variety of educational courses. One course, taught by Homer Niday, was called “The Business Boys Training School.” Mr. Niday, the head bookkeeper at the American Savings Bank, asserted that with his course, “the question of breaking in a new office boy is settled to the satisfaction of all concerned.” Looking at a summary of Mr. Niday’s course that appeared in the local press at the time, we can learn something of both what has changed and what has not changed in local business education. “At present there are 15 boys in the ‘Business Boys Training School’ ranging in age from 15 to 18 years. Promptly at seven of o’clock, they came in — bright-faced, alert, quick-stepping youngsters, whose every attitude showed they were there for business. “ And what exactly did these young men — and they were all men, as the office was no place for a lady — learn in their classes at the YMCA? “Complete mastery of typewriters of all makes, and the clever art of keeping the machines clean, oiled and in good order, proper punctuation and neatness with all copy “ “How to write a check; how to indorse a check; how to give a receipt; how to deposit money

at the bank and how to give out change. “How to answer telephone calls and the imED portance of always being LENTZ courteous, even to the most peevish caller. “How to manipulate the adding machine; how to make mimeograph copies; how to file papers and clippings; how to open and sort the mail and place it neatly for the man ‘higher-up’. “How to write, fold and stamp letters with accurate neatness.” Reading through all of this, anybody who has recently worked in an office will notice how much has changed from a century ago. First and foremost, there will soon be as many office girls as office boys. And while complete mastery of office machines is important, most of them do not today require all that much oiling. Similarly, most adding machines have been replaced by pocket calculators and the mimeograph is now a museum exhibit rather than a means of making copies. Despite all of these technical differences between that time and our own, Homer Niday left his students with certain pieces of advice: “Be ‘Johnnie on the Spot’ when needed.” “The business world has no place for the laggard, even a new office boy.” “When you go anywhere to represent your firm, show that you are proud of it.” “When you answer a telephone or greet a caller, be courteous and pleasant.” “Remember that office boys grow up very gradually and that there is sure promotion for the lad who is sincere, energetic and reliable.” “Study your employer’s busi-

ness and interests and aim to make yourself valuable to him from the very first day you enter his office” While most of us will not be called upon soon to oil a typewriter or operate a mimeograph, the general advice as to deportment and discipline given by Mr. Niday is just as valuable today as it was more than a century ago. The newspaper article from more than century ago concluded optimistically, “That the business world has no place for laggards, even a new office boy, is the A B C D of this school for hustlers. That there is always room ‘higher up’ for the faithful boy is an incentive which is not overlooked. “The boys in Mr. Niday’s class will certainly be well qualified for their work when they ‘graduate.’ The course is six months long with lessons twice each week, Tuesday evenings and Thursday evenings … “A few years hence, the commercial life of the city will doubtless be represented in many ways and in various locations throughout the world by the men who, as boys, received their first lessons in business at the “Business Boys Training School” at the Columbus YMCA.” In a few years, the business school of the Columbus YMCA would leave and over the course of time become Franklin University. The YMCA itself would move in 1924 to its new home on Spring Street. The old building would be removed and an entirely new building would be built to be the home of The Columbus Dispatch. And Mr. Niday’s boys? While their names remain unknown, I would like to believe that they went on to some success. They certainly seemed to be well prepared to do so.

It’s not intended to train. It’s more of an exposure.” Pearson said. Those interested in the program can

GVS asks Arshot for accord on proposed racetrack Continued from page A2 a rezoning that would allow the project to move forward, Smith said. Society members in the past had expressed concern over the racetrack but didn’t formally oppose the plan. Instead, they asked the developer to consider other redevelopment options. Arshot has agreed to put up sound walls to help mitigate the noise and contends, based on its own sound studies, that excessive noise will be well contained within the area of the park. Studies from opposition groups dispute that claim. A vast of majority of races would be held Saturday and Sunday. Mayor Michael B. Coleman has

withheld support of the racetrack until Arshot does more to address the noise issue. But the Columbus Development Commission recently supported the developer’s plans. The next stop is city council. Construction of the park could begin in 2012. Meanwhile, Arshot and the Southwest Civic Association, a neighborhood group close to the planned racetrack, have entered a good-neighbor agreement that addresses sound and time of operation. The developer has agreed to pay fines for violations of the accord. GVS members expressed some concern whether any such agreement could be enforced. Lisa Griffin, spokeswoman for

Arshot, said that the accord is enforceable and would be upheld by the developer. Griffin said that while Arhsot believes that there will be no disruptive noise impact on any areas east of the Interstate 71 freeway, including German Village, the developer has consistently indicated its willingness to meet with and listen to residents of any community regarding Cooper Park. Arshot, however, will not consider provisions to the original agreement without the consent of the Southwest Civic Association, Griffin said. “If the German Village Society desires to participate in such discussions, we would appreciate the opportunity to meet with them and explain the many features of our

existing good-neighbor agreement,” Griffin said. “That agreement is obviously intended to protect and benefit the neighborhoods immediately surrounding the Cooper Stadium site. “Nevertheless, with the consent

of the Southwest Civic Association, we would be happy to consider any reasonable suggestions the German Village Society may have for possible additions to the existing good-neighbor agreement.”

St. Patrick’s Day draws crowds to Dublin By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Dublin will celebrate St. Patrick’s Day on March 12 with 20,000 of its closest friends. The annual St. Patrick’s Day parade will step off from Metro Place at 11 a.m. March 12 with about 100 units traversing the milelong route in about 90 minutes. Dublin expects about 20,000 people to view the parade. The annual event recently drew attention from U.S. News and World Report as one of the top 10 St. Patrick’s Day celebrations across the nation. “We get a lot of media exposure from the parade. A lot of people say, ‘What is Dublin doing for St. Patrick’s Day,’” said Mary Jo DiSalvo, a Dublin event administrator. “That’s why we get 20,000 people.” The Dublin Convention and

Visitor’s Bureau got a notice from the national magazine about a month ago about a search for St. Patrick’s Day festivities, executive director Scott Dring said. “We sent them some information and pitched Dublin as a great location for St. Patrick’s Day,” he said. The pitch earned Dublin sixth place. The parade dubbed “the greenest and the grandest” by Dublin will include marching bands from Dublin’s three high schools, Cap City Pipes and Drums, horses, balloons, Irish dancers and a lot of other green entries. Pat Shinnick, a bus driver for Dublin City Schools, will be in the parade with a school bus, decorated appropriately. “Dublin schools are a big part of the community and we transport those young ones,” she said. Shinnick and about 10 others

from the district’s transportation department will volunteer their time and money to decorate the bus and travel the parade route. “I truly enjoy it because I love to see the faces of people,” she said. “I’m a people and kids person anyway. I just like to see people happy and hand out literature to them and tell them what we’re about.” Dublin City School employees aren’t the only volunteers at the parade. The city depends upon volunteers for jobs including handling balloons, manning information tents and walking the parade route. Anyone interested in volunteering for the parade can call Judy Godsey at (614) 410-4404 or email jgodsey@dublin.oh.us. The mile-long route that begins at Metro Place travels north on Frantz Road to Bridge Street, where it heads east to Historic

Dublin could get crowded with 20,000 expected. DiSalvo recommended people get there early to secure a spot along the parade route. But earlier arrivers won’t be alone. The Irish rock band, the Hooligans, will start playing at 10 a.m. on the lawn of Indian Run Elementary School, 80 W. Bridge St.

Some other pre-parade entertainment will be offered in the parking lot of Crowne Plaza. The Inflation Celebration will begin at 8:30 a.m., showing the public how parade balloons get off the ground. “There’s a lot more to it than anyone has ever known,” DiSalvo said. La Scala will host the Blarney

Hop across the river following the parade from noon to 4 p.m. The event is a fundraiser and kickoff for the Dublin Relay for life. Historic Dublin businesses will also offer goodies on March 12. Java Jan, Our Cupcakery, Real Living HER, The Sisters Sweet Shoppe and Starbucks have specials and freebies lined up for the celebration.

Blarney Hop to offer games and fundraising kickoff By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Despite previous announcements to the contrary, the Dublin Relay for Life kickoff is set to follow Dublin’s St. Patrick’s Day parade on March 12. The event that raises money for the American Cancer Society will be shifted to the east this year as the Blarney Hop moves to La Scala Italian Bistro, 4199 W. Dublin-Granville Road. The Blarney Hop, which will run from noon to 4 p.m. March 12, won’t have to worry about weather. “The first positive thing is La Scala has offered to let us use their banquet room inside,” said Dublin Relay for Life chair Tim Gaffney. “Last year it got rained out, but we’ll be in the banquet facility and won’t have to worry about weather.” The Blarney Hop was previously held at the Shoppes at River Ridge, but the development is currently in receivership so a new home for the event had to be found.

There will be numerous games from teams of the relay. We’ll be doing fundraising events. There will be arts and crafts for kids, face painting, a cake walk (and) bake sales.

TIM GAFFNEY —Dublin Relay for Life chair

“It’s been a very positive day with La Scala providing a facility and helping to make this possible,” Gaffney said last week. The fundraiser will have family-friendly activities so Dublin parade attendees can continue their day at the Blarney Hop. “There will be numerous games from teams of the relay,” Gaffney said. “We’ll be doing

Program announced to help fund gardens City and county officials last week announced creation of a fund to offer grants for community gardens. Mayor Michael B. Coleman Councilmember Priscilla Tyson and Franklin County Commissioners Marilyn Brown, Paula Brooks and John O’Grady made the announcement in cooperation with the Foundation for Active Living at the Columbus Foundation. “Recognizing the many benefits of community gardens, the grant fund will support existing gardens in the city of Columbus and throughout Franklin County and encourage the creation of new ones,” according to a statement released jointly by the mayor’s office, city council and that of the board of commissioners. The press release touted the benefits of such projects, and said that the American Community Gardening Association reports that there are over 18,000 community gardens in the United States and Canada. “By partnering with the county, we have leveraged our respective resources to create new gardens and strengthen existing ones,” Coleman was quoted as saying. “Community gardens benefit our health, our community and our environment, and they give neighbors a reason and a place to come together.” “This grant fund will support and encourage community gardens in our local neighborhoods and foster an environment of healthy living for area children,” Commissioner Brown said in a statement. “We know that if families have access to grow their

own fruits and vegetables at a low cost, they are more likely to put them on their dinner table.” “Franklin County is filled with individuals and organizations that are putting their shovels in the ground and producing nutritious food,” Brooks added. “Community gardens help create strong communities and connect people to their food supply,” was O’Grady’s comment. “Community gardens promote healthy lifestyles by providing fresh food for families, encourage engagement among residents of all ages, create green jobs in an improving economy and increase the overall pride in a neighborhood,” Tyson was quoted as saying. To qualify for the grant, the applicant must meet requirements such as a registered 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code and be located within the city of Columbus or qualifying areas of Franklin County. Grant awards will be made up to $4,000 for each project for supplies and/or services. Scott’s Miracle-Gro will supplement grant awards with product donations. Grant applicants must access the grant application on the Columbus Foundation website at www.columbusfoundation.org. The application can be found under Columbus Foundation Grants, Fund for Targeted Needs, in the Neighborhood Grants and Community Gardens section. The applications are due by Friday, April 1. Winners will be announced at the Earth Day celebration at Franklin Park Conservatory on April 23.

Grove City man among 2 killed in bar fight By GARY BUDZAK ThisWeek Community Newspapers A Grove City man was killed early Monday morning (March 7) during a bar fight at the VIP Lounge, 3650 Main St., Hilliard. Two died. They were the first homicides in Hilliard since 1989. Three others were hospitalized, including the man charged in the murders. Hilliard police officers arrived at the lounge at 12:43 a.m., finding the lifeless bodies of Tyler Bronson, 34, of Hilliard and Jeff E. Fijolek, 44, of Grove

City. Donald J. Schlarman, 27, of Worthington, was charged with two counts of murder. He was listed in stable condition under police guard at Riverside Hospital Tuesday. Two other bar patrons from Columbus were injured in trying to break up the fight: Thomas A. Cline, 35, and Clarence L. Shepard III, 45, were both hospitalized. “Those two victims are going to be fine,” said Hilliard Police Sgt. James Redmond. Cline told The Columbus Dispatch the fight started between Bronson and

It’s completely unpredictable. I don’t think it’s a reflection on the city at all.” Schonhardt said the VIP Lounge was threatened with a hearing a few years ago when its liquor license was up for renewal, and the owner “was very accommodating as far as making certain that he complied with all of the issues the police department had.”

Comets’ Pickett places fourth at state By JEREMY STEWART ThisWeek Community Newspapers

There was not much celebrating after Central Crossing High School’s Vince Pickett came down from the awards podium at the Division I state wrestling meet March 5 at Ohio State. Pickett, who cruised to a district title a week earlier, finished fourth at state at 160 pounds. But he had his sights set higher. “My goal was to come in and be the state champ. It didn’t work out that way. I still have another year to get it done,” said Pickett, who was pinned by Mayfield’s Tylan Coleman in 2 minutes, 22 seconds in a thirdplace match. Pickett was 4-2 in the tournament. After beating Wooster’s Zach Ellsworth 14-4 in his opening match March 3, Pickett fell to Wadsworth’s Sheldon Brandenburg 5-2 the following day. He also earned wins over West Chester Lakota West’s Vinnie Bradberry (12-1), Olentangy Liberty’s Nick Kaczkowski (7-6) and Kettering Fairmont’s Tommy Kimbrell (6-1). “He had a great tournament,” coach Jamie Ramirez said. “It was really loaded at 160. He had four returning placers on his side of the bracket. He did a great job of coming through. He lost a tough match against (Brandenburg), who made it to the final. There’s nothing to be ashamed of. It’s quite an accomplishment. He just has his goals set so high and that gets him a little upset, but that’s what champions do.” Pickett finished the season 50-3. He is now a two-time state placer, having finished eighth in the state in Division II last year while wrestling for Williamsport Westfall. “I was kind of more used to (the state tournament atmosphere),” Pickett said. “I wasn’t so nervous and uptight about everything. Last year’s experience helped me out a bit. (Placing at state) makes me want to keep going. I want to get the state title. It’s nice placing at state, but you want to win it.” Gage Hysell also competed at state, finishing 0-2 at 152. Hysell was pinned twice, by Cincinnati Moeller’s Michael Blum in 3:11 and Wooster’s Anthony Catanzarite in 57 seconds. Hysell, who placed second at district, ended the season 32-9. “One question they always ask is, ‘Did you go to state?’” Ramirez said. “And (Hysell) will be able to say yes he did. He finished off a good career. This was a good accomplishment and he’s one of the top 16 in the state

be a state champion unless you get to the state tournament. He can say that he made it to the state tournament.” Hughes, who was Grove City’s first state qualifier in three seasons, finished 36-10. www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com

Hughes closes season at state By FRANK DiRENNA ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Angela Hughes of Grove City competes on vault during the state meet March 5 at Hilliard Bradley.

The Grove City High School gymnastics team enjoyed some success this season, but coach Mark Hartley had hoped for more. “You’re never really satisfied when you know that you’ve left a lot of things out there that you could have done better,” said Hartley, whose team qualified one competitor for the state meet but struggled in OCC-Ohio Division competition. Junior Angela Hughes qualified for state March 5 at Hilliard Bradley by placing seventh on vault (8.8) at district Feb. 26 at Worthington Kilbourne. The top eight placers in each event at district, including the all-around, advanced to state. At state, Hughes finished 28th on vault with an 8.85. Avon’s Whitney Stoops won the state title with a 9.7. “This is very exciting,” Hughes said at the meet. “I wish I had some of my teammates here with me to celebrate, but they’re up in the stands cheering me on.” Brecksville-Broadview Heights won the team competition March 4 with 146.6 points. Last season, Hughes was a state alternate on vault. “I thought Angela had a chance to make it this year,” Hartley said. “If she could have put it all together, she could

Boys Basketball

Grove City Christian showed steady progress ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Although it got off to a slow start, the Grove City Christian School boys basketball team showed steady progress and was playing its best at the end of the season, first-year coach Chris Timlin said. The Eagles, who finished 6-16 overall and 2-8 in the MOCAL, won their Division IV district tournament opener 56-47 over Danville on Feb. 26 before losing to Newark Catholic 79-37 in the second round March 2. Against fourth-seeded Newark Catholic, sophomore Derek Vaughn led the Eagles with 11 points. Timlin said putting freshmen point guards Michael Howard and Tyler Elgin into the lineup hastened the team’s improvement.

“Had I been involved in the program much earlier and known the personnel better than I did back into June, Michael Howard and Tyler Elgin probably would have been up at the varsity level a lot sooner,” Timlin said. “They really helped us out a lot. Our turnover ratio was much lower when those two played at the end of the year.” Vaughn led the team in scoring at 12.7 points a game and was named second-team all-league and honorable mention all-district. “Derek is definitely a guy that will continue to develop and probably continue to add on to those individual numbers,” Timlin said. “He’s one of the very few guys that’s basketball only, so that means after our 30 days (the non-coaching period after the season) are up, we’ll be able to get in the weight room, out onto the track and

continue to develop his physical abilities, let alone his basketball abilities.” Senior forward Jonathan Clark, who was honorable mention all-league and district and led the team in rebounding at 7.7 a game, said Vaughn was a difference maker for the Eagles. “Derek really started to step it up a lot and we started to jell together as a team,” Clark said. “We just got together this year, and it was a good effort all around. We just started jelling and understanding the coach’s philosophy.”

Timlin must replace three seniors in Clark, Jayme Barns and Sam Hatfield. “They helped me with the transition,” Timlin said. “I was thankful to have all three of them. I wish I could have had those guys for a bit longer. All three of them have quite a bit of talent and have something to offer. It’s unfortunate that I won’t have an opportunity to work with them anymore, but I was grateful for the effort that they gave us this year and they’re very good kids.” Also expected back next season are juniors Casey Fisher, Alex Stewart, Ben Whitaker and Josh Zeller and freshman Ben Aulick. Whitaker, a guard, was honorable mention allleague. Grove City Christian finished fifth in the MOCAL behind Tree of Life (8-2), Fairfield Christian (7-3), Ga-

Ready Roundup

Smith, Hall place at state wrestling tournament By JARROD ULREY ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The goal of winning a Division III championship still was within reach for Ready High School wrestlers Bobby Smith and Josh Hall late on the second day of the three-day state tournament. It ultimately didn’t work out for either. Smith and Hall each lost semifinal matches and fell into the backdraw, but the duo went on to give the Silver Knights their first state placers since Jordan Dawson was eighth at 119 pounds in 2005. Smith earned a fifth-place finish at 103 and Hall placed sixth at 112 at state, which concluded March 5 at Ohio State. “Both were staring state finals in the face,” coach Chance Van Gundy said. “Josh put together a good three weeks, worked hard, wrestled hard and ended his senior year on the podium. Bobby has been in a lot of big tournaments and matches, but nothing prepares you for the state tournament.” Smith won his first two matches but lost to Bedford Chanel’s Aaron Assad 2-1 in two overtimes in a semifinal. After losing to Mechanicsburg’s Austin Reese 2-1 in a consolation semifinal, Smith bounced back from a 3-0 deficit late in his fifth-place match to pin Marion Pleasant’s Zon Fields in 4 minutes, 40 seconds. Smith lost to Fields in a district tournament semifinal Feb. 26 at Coshocton. “I was a little depressed before (the state match against Fields),” said Smith, who finished his freshman season with a 43-4 record. “I was thinking I needed to get a five-pointer or a pin. (Fields) ended up in an over-under situation and I just twisted off and went into a throw. It’s hard to come back from a loss. (Assad and I) are about even, but he was just a little better than me that day.” “It’s a nice consolation prize,” Van Gundy said of Smith beating Fields. “It was about him putting together five more minutes. You can’t go out there and quit. He wanted to be in the finals, but I’m excited for his future.” Hall won his first two matches before falling to Waynesville’s

Allison Lichwa of Ready competes in the state tournament March 4 at Wayne Webb’s Columbus Bowl. The senior rolled a 501 series to finish 63rd.

Cody Steiner 9-6 in a semifinal. Hall then fell to Middlefield Cardinal’s Casey Johns 8-1 in a consolation semifinal and defaulted his fifth-place match to Apple Creek Waynedale’s Tyler Harter. Hall has battled a shoulder injury in recent weeks. It flared up to the point that he couldn’t lift it on the third day of the state tournament. He went 0-2 at state a year ago. “I should have placed higher,” said Hall, who finished with a 40-7 record. “I was one mistake away from making it to the finals. It was definitely better than last year. I picked up a couple more Ws.” The Silver Knights scored 256.5 points to win the CCL tournament Feb. 12 at Watterson, ahead of DeSales (183.5), St. Charles (150), Hartley (137) and the host Eagles (48). Hall and Smith were joined as conference champions by senior Phil Halko (160) and freshmen Will Martello (130), Dalton Scott (119) and Hannibal Tate (145). Ready placed third (176.5) at

the sectional at Madison Plains behind West Jefferson (254.5) and Amanda-Clearcreek (218.5). Smith and Hall were first, Halko, Scott and senior Brandon Cooper (215) each placed second, Tate was third and senior Joe Knapp (135) and freshmen Patrik Garren (189) and Patrick Stover (130) all were fourth. At district Feb. 25-26 at Coshocton, the Silver Knights were fourth (80) behind champion Nelsonville-York (129). Hall was first and Smith took third. Scott, who finished 31-13, and Tate, who finished 35-11, each placed fifth. Knapp (23-16) and Halko (27-14) both won two matches and Cooper (25-12) won one match. Garren (22-18) and Stover (23-20) both went 0-2. Other seniors on the team were Brian Montgomery (125) and Chris Goodberlet (152). The Silver Knights had 15 freshmen among their 24 competitors. •Senior Allison Lichwa finished 63rd (501) at the girls state bowling tournament March 4 at

Wayne Webb’s Columbus Bowl. She followed rounds of 165 and 154 with a 182. The tournament was delayed for more than three hours because of a power outage midway through the competition. “It’s been a great experience,” Lichwa said. “I couldn’t have asked for a better time than I had. It’s been fun and entertaining just to watch everybody bowl. The lights going out was pretty memorable.” Lichwa was second at the Eastland Lanes sectional tournament Feb. 18 with a 583 behind Chillicothe’s Summer Finley (584) to advance to district as an individual. She then placed third (582) at district Feb. 26 at HP Lanes. Lichwa, who was a four-time district qualifier, was the only senior on the girls team. Among

are junior Noah Yoder, sophomore Colin Rowe and freshmen Zach Bair and Andrew Rinehart. •The boys basketball team will lose three players to graduation in Nick Alvarez, Kyle Bergman and Christian Knapper, but only Knapper was a key contributor. He joined the team for the final 12 games after returning from a broken leg and averaged 5.1 points. Junior Derek Farmer and sophomore Kyle Wilgus, who both averaged 10 points, should be the top returnees next season along with junior Bo Hardy (6.5 ppg), sophomores Kris Clarke (3 ppg) and Doug Strickler (5 ppg) and freshman Brady Taylor (3.5 ppg). Ready finished 6-16 overall after advancing to a state semifinal in 2010. The Silver Knights opened the district tournament with a 50-21 win over Berne Union on Feb. 23 but suffered a 50-46 overtime loss to top-seeded Heath on Feb. 26. Hartley won the CCL at 7-1 ahead of DeSales (6-2), Watterson (4-4), St. Charles (3-5) and Ready (0-8). “We were a much better team in the second half of the year than in the first half,” second-year coach Don Worstell said. “We could see it happening daily. We’re really excited about our freshman and sophomore classes, and we had a couple juniors who stepped up and had good finishes.”

those eligible to return are juniors Stephanie Carrier and Kelly Schwendeman and freshmen Marina Sweet, Paige Sutfin and Madison Whitehead. The Silver Knights tied Northland and Hartley for second at 92 in the Central Ohio High School Bowling Conference-Central Division behind Watterson (11-0). They were seventh (3,051) at the 21-team sectional behind champion Westerville South (3,531). The boys tied for fifth with Northland and Watterson at 8-5 in the COHSBC-Central behind champion Hartley (13-0) and were 13th (3,228) at the 24-team sectional behind champion Hartley (4,231). Seniors for the boys team were Ben Kaiser and Cody Lee. julrey@thisweeknews.com Among those eligible to return www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com

Central Ohio libraries again offering help for job seekers By GARY SEMAN JR. ThisWeek Community Newspapers

A closer look

Once again, the seven library systems in Franklin County are banding together to provide workforce training to central Ohioans. Job Help Week, the fourth such program in three years, is scheduled March 14 through March 18. The theme is “Any Age,Any Stage,” meaning there will be specific programs for teens to senior citizens. The help is free and will deal with everything from building résumés to interviewing skills to using social media websites. All 21 branches of the Columbus Metropolitan Library system will provide programming throughout the week. “Our goal for Job Help Week is to help make connections for our customers who use the library as part of their employment search,” said Steve Hipes, project manager for the library’s job help centers. In 2010, the library system helped more than 43,000 people in its Job Help Week efforts, he said. “It’s impressive because it shows the li-

brary keeps responding to the customers’ needs,” Hipes said. The Columbus library system is working with some new partners for the event, such as the Office of Continuing Education at The Ohio State University and the Center for Workforce Development at Columbus State Community College. The new partners join long-term supporters, such as Employment for Seniors and the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services.

“The library’s all about connecting people with information,” Hipes said. “This is a great opportunity for us to do that.” The Upper Arlington, Westerville, Worthington, Grandview Heights, Southwest and Bexley libraries also are getting involved. Upper Arlington, for example, has two days of events. No registration is necessary. From 4 to 5 p.m. March 15, Christopher Addison of DeVry University will provide interactive sessions with high school juniors and seniors, who will explore personality types and career ambitions. “When they walk away they will have a sense of what their strengths are,” said Ruth McNeil, community relations manager. On March 17, at the main branch of the Upper Arlington library, a full slate of onehour sessions will be offered, beginning at 10:30 a.m. and 2, 3 and 4 p.m. Career development experts from Ohio State, Franklin University, Jewish Family Services and 40 Plus of Central Ohio will provide advice on interviewing and résumé-building skills, as well as networking and career coaching. gseman@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekNews.com

Graffiti meeting pushed back to March 29

Winter royalty Amanda Folzenlogen, left, and Jonathan Clark beam after being named Homecoming queen and king at Grove City Christian School Jan. 29. Both are seniors at the school on Hoover Road.

A sort of summit meeting for people from throughout Columbus concerned about, or more likely irked by, graffiti has been pushed back from the originally scheduled date of Wednesday, March 16. The meeting will not take place on Tuesday, March 29, James R. Blazer of the Clintonville Area Commission announced last week. The previous date conflicted with a meeting of the University Area Commission, which is jointly involved in putting on the program. It will still be held at the Charity Newsies building, 4300 Indianola Ave., starting at 7 p.m. Initially, Blazer had proposed to his fellow members on the area commission the concept of putting on a meeting for Clintonville residents upset by graffiti and especially “tagging” on public and private property. “It’s become a big issue in

Clintonville, and people are upset,” the District 3 CAC representative said back in mid-February when the session was initially planned. “It’s defacing the neighborhood.” Realizing that the problem is probably even more widespread in the area of Ohio State University’s campus, Blazer contacted University Area Commission chairman Ian McConnell, who expressed interest in organizing the event. Since then, Blazer said that the Linden and Northland areas have become part of the mix. The Northland Community Council has a graphics task force that, among other things, focuses on the issue of graffiti throughout the neighborhoods. Details of who will be speaking at the rescheduled meeting were to be worked out and available in the near future, according to Blazer. — Kevin Parks

MIGRAINE FEVER

Chocolatier back in the kitchen By GARY SEMAN JR. ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Kristy Yosick is reuniting Columbus with her special brand of handcrafted chocolates. She recently has partnered with the owners of Voda Emporium, an Olde Towne East market that is now the exclusive provider of her artisan treats. Ted Drydek, who owns Voda with Gary Wahlers, said he’s personally a fan of Yosick’s creations. “The truth is, it’s phenomenal,� he said. “We love it.� Yosick said Voda, a quirky market with a wide range of goods, is well suited to carry her merchandise. “I know these guys will respect my chocolates,� she said. It’s also close to her loyal base of German Village customers. On a related note, Yosick has passed along her recipe for scones to Voda, which is now serving them in the adjacent Portico, a small coffee shop that opened recently. Voda, 81 Parsons Ave., carries up to 31 flavors per day, selling them by the piece and box. Customers can also place special or-

ders, which take 24 hours to fill. Yosick closed her business, Yosick’s Artisan Chocolates in German Village, on Christmas Eve. She said she took a muchneeded rest but returned to business in February. She now creates her confections from a small professional kitchen in Hilliard, where she turns out about 2,000 pieces a week, both for private customers and Voda. Yosick, who lives in German Village, said she plans to double her production in the next few months as she focuses on Internet sales and several new retail locations across the city. Her former shop, located in a small storefront on East Fifth Street, closed after three years in business. Unlike her original

store, her current space is not certified kosher and she has phased out any savory items so she can focus on her brand, which she wants to expand regionally. In addition to truffles, she makes Belgian-molded chocolates, French chocolates and is working on a line of confections, such as turtles, and themed designs. She has unveiled a new line of pepper-based pieces, using sriracha, pablano, jalapeĂąo and cayenne. She said they have zip but aren’t too spicy. It’s all part of her desire to evolve her chocolate line and expand the bounds of creativity. “I changed my entire business model,â€? she said. “And that’s one of the reasons, so I can be more creative and focus on chocolate and bring newer pieces to light on a seasonal basis.â€? gseman@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekNews.com

There are some college students in the chorus as well. Members come from throughout central Ohio, including beyond Chillicothe and Delaware. Most were singers though high school or college, or have participated in a similar group in another city. “They have to have that background or they wouldn’t qualify,” Jenkins said.

Great deals, healthy meals and Asian flavors at Poong Mei From its sign outside, Poong Mei — aka Spring of China — claims it’s a Chinese restaurant. And you do pass through a red-and-gold imperial-type “China gate” by G.A. Benton portal to enter the place’s dining room. But one gaze at Poong Mei’s menu or the food laid out on its busy tables (many is more Chinese than Japanese, neither filled with obvious regulars) informs you is the dominant ethnicity. Because while that while this self-described “Asian bistro” Poong Mei certainly has Chinese and Japanese appendages, its head, heart, body and soul are purely Korean. Ambience-wise, Poong Mei is neither particularly distinguished nor bad looking. Lived-in but not dumpy, it’s got a sort of past-its-prime, small-town country club vibe. Likely its most standout features are a huge, sports-tuned projection TV and goofy, piped-in stringy music, By Dan Sohner/ThisWeek which could’ve been exCuddled Tofu Soup with Beef Short Rib at Poong Mei. humed from the sound-

MENU

tracks of melodramatic ’70s movies. So the food’s the thing at Poong Mei — and fortunately, the food is very good. A sensational shareable starter was an octet of obviously homemade Steamed Pork Buns ($8). Served on a steaming metal tray, they were beautiful snowwhite pillows with puffy, delicate, meltin-your-mouth textures and lovely, mildly fermented, sourdough-like flavors. Inside each was a wildly juicy scallionflecked clump of lusty, sausagey ground pork. Also great was a more robust group meal-igniter which could equally serve as a large entree for a single diner — Seafood Noodle Soup ($10, comes with a fine array of “ban chan,” small plates). In a super fragrant, medium spicy red broth were Poong Mei’s phenomenal housemade noodles (long, thin, silky and springy) plus bits of tender seafood-like green mussels, little shrimp, cuttlefish and octopus. A handful of veggies — like sweet carrots and earthy greens — rounded out the bowl’s happily married flavors.

Poong Mei 4720 Reed Road, Upper Arlington 614-273-9998 Cuisine: Chinese and Asian Price: $ (up to $10 per person) Patio: No Hours: 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Sunday-Thursday, 11 a.m.-11 p.m. Friday-Saturday The hits kept coming — as did the sweet deals and healthy meals — with the Cuddled Tofu Soup with Beef Short Rib ($12; I got the vegetarian version). A bold, garlicky and mildly spicy chili broth held lots of wiggly bits of silky tofu plus veggies such as unmushy zucchini and cloud ear mushrooms. At the last second, a raw egg had been dropped into the gurgling hot broth — and I was amazed how much it enriched the soup when I broke the egg’s yolk and stirred it through the quick-cooking pot. But wait, there was more! The supersatisfying, lean soup (which included ban chan) had a fatty accomplice in the form

of irresistible kalbi (three bone-in shortribs) slathered in a sweet, thick sort of barbecue sauce. Poong Mei’s terrific housemade noodles were the basis for a dramatically allblack stir-fried Zhang Mun ($11). Looking like a dish of squid ink-sauced pasta but tasting like the marvelous (if a bit greasy) Asian stir-fry it really was, this nifty noodle-athon united pork, tiny shrimp, a lot of onions, veggies and assorted seafood bits in a salty fermented black bean sauce. Whether it’s that Chinese-style dish, or a neat Chinese-Korean hybrid like Shredded Pork with Hot Pepper ($12) or a great, straight-up Korean Hot Stone BiBim-Bob ($10), Poong Mei does it well, inexpensively and with genuine flavors.

Factory worker returns to food industry After working factory jobs both in Delaware and in central Ohio, Anuson “Chris” Khumauksorn is once again pursuing his love of cooking and the restaurant business. The Bangkok native has opened Taste of Thai in the Polaris area, replacing Ha Long Bay, a Vietnamese restaurant at 8489 Sancus Blvd. The menu offers a wide range of Thai classics, from tom yum soup to pad Thai to shredded

papaya salad. Most entrees are in the $9 to $11 range, with a few of the house specialties costing around $15. Owning a restaurant — and being its chef — isn’t exactly what Khumauksorn had in mind. Sure, he helped his mother run a restaurant in his native Thailand,

while also earning a bachelor’s degree in business management. A cousin who owned a restaurant in Florida beckoned, so Khumauksorn and his family moved to the Sunshine State to help. He removed himself from the restaurant industry for several years and moved to Ohio with his wife. Yet he longed to return to the business and staked out a location in the Polaris area, which currently has a lot of restaurants but no Thai.

By Eric George/ThisWeek

Taste of Thai owner Anuson “Chris” Khumauksorn prepares his pad Thai with rice noodles, shrimp, chicken, eggs, ground peanuts, beansprouts and scallion in pad Thai sauce.

The interior – and store sign – at Taste of Thai is bright yellow for a reason, as the color symbolizes warmth and cheerfulness, he said. He said there’s still a learning curve for some customers, who tend to group all Asian cuisines together. Or they have another stigma about Thai. “People think of Thai food as spicy, hot,” he said. Therefore, he makes it clear that he will adjust the spice level to the diner’s preference. For now, there is no alcohol, but Khumauksorn said he intends to apply for a license to sell wine and beer. Taste of Thai is open for lunch and dinner daily. For more information, call 614-436-3735. Fresh off the opening of the successful San-Su, Yun Hui “Yumi” Wada has another restaurant planned for Bethel Road. Aoi, a Japanese restaurant, will take over the 5,000-square-foot building that once housed Einstein Bros. Bagels and Boston Market, 876-878 Bethel Road. The menu will feature sushi, noodle dishes, tempura and the like. It is expected to open in May. Meanwhile, Wada has leased San-Su, a Korean restaurant, to Jae Uk Jong. Wada is the founder of the two local Genji Japanese Steakhouses, among other enterprises.
