Group clarifies bike path easement

Hilliard Davidson High School junior Chase Delande defeats Massiliion Perry High School senior Tanner Lemon 9-4 to win the Division I state championship at 145 pounds March 5 at the Schottenstein Center. Delande is the first Wildcat state wrestling champion during Dominic DiSabato’s 12 years as coach. See Sports on page B1 for the story.

Hilliard’s city planning, projects and services committee tied up some loose ends, as chairman Tim Roberts put it, at its March 7 meeting. First, members unanimously forwarded on to council a resolution clarifying the city’s acceptance of a 20-foot wide bike path easement parallel to Cosgray Road, extending from Scioto Darby Road to the Heritage Rail Trails from Hoffman Farms Homeowners Association. An ordinance was originally approved in 1998 for the easement and responsibility for the bike path, which had not yet been constructed. If city council approves of the resolution, the city will repair the bike path if necessary, and the homeowners association “shall maintain the property surrounding and abutting the bike path,” according to the language of the maintenance agreement. “A while back, we began getting some inquiries about who was responsible to maintain this,” said director of public service Clyde Seidle. “We’re See GROUP CLARIFIES, page A2

2 killed in bar fight

Hilliard records first homicides since 1989 By GARY BUDZAK ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The first homicides in Hilliard since 1989 took place early Monday morning, March 7, during a bar fight at the VIP Lounge, 3650 Main St. Two men were stabbed to death and three other people 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 arrested and charged with two counts of murder after he was released from Riverside Hospital March 8. 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

Hannah Sanders, a Hilliard Darby High School senior, is studying German — on her own — after taking four years of Spanish. That’s the sort of dedication to learning you would expect from a National Merit Finalist. “I’ve just started studying German on my own just for fun,” Sanders said. “If I still like German, I’ll probably want to major in it.” Sanders is one of four students in Hilliard City Schools to be named National Merit Finalists. The others, from Davidson, are Brandon Mills, Kevin Rose and Anna Saelens. The quartet is among the 15,000 nationwide to be named National Merit Finalists out of 1.5-million who try to earn the honor annually. Of those, 8,400 will receive Merit Scholarship Awards, according to the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. Joseph Palazzo, college counselor at Darby, said Sanders has a grade-point average over 4.0. “She’s a very intelligent girl, makes her contributions in and out of the classroom,” Palazzo said. “She’s quietly effective.” Palazzo said to be named a finalist, a student has to do well on the PSAT test and pull similar scores on the SAT. There are also a number of other things to fill out, such as a list of extracurricular activities, an essay and a letter of recommendation from a teacher or administrator. “This is really special for me,” said Sanders, who is picking among 11 schools for college. “I’m one of 15,000 people in the entire country to be named to this special group of really smart people. It’s just something that not a lot of people can say they are a part of.” Sanders said she is an usher at her church and works See SANDERS, page A2

Building to the trustees of Norwich Township. The city originally acquired the right-of-way for the Avery Road at Northwest Parkway road project, but does not need it now. However, the township would like to use it for its signage, Seidle said. “All we’re doing is giving back that extra 45 feet,” Seidle said. “We still have a total of 80 feet of right-of-way for our roadway through there, and then they will be able to do what they need to do, and not have to have any variances.”

Hilliard records first homicides since 1989 Continued from page A1 Sgt. James Redmond. Cline told The Columbus Dispatch the fight started between Bronson and Schlarman, with Fijolek trying to break it up. Bronson was stabbed in the neck and Fijolek in the chest. Shepard grabbed Schlarman as Cline punched him. Cline, a musician who was on break at the time of the incident, had stab wounds in his right forearm and thigh. Bar patrons subdued the suspect until the police arrived. “The bar patrons literally beat the hell out of this guy with pool sticks.” Redmond said. “There were 40-50 people in the bar when this happened,” Redmond said. “We had a lot of patrons who left after all this happened.” Twelve hours after the incident, the crime scene tape was removed and the blood cleansed from the sidewalk outside, and the lounge appeared to be open later that night. Hilliard Mayor Don Schonhardt said of the incident, “This can happen anywhere. 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.”

SANDERS Continued from page A1 at Great American Cookie Company at Tuttle Mall, where she was recently promoted to supervisor. “I was thinking of majoring in a foreign language and economics,” Hannah said. “I’m not exactly sure about my future career, but I do know what I have an interest in for studying.” Both of Hannah’s parents, Brian and Rebecca Sanders, are educators.

“From an early age, she was surrounded by books, and we raised her with the thought that education is very important and your ticket to anywhere,” Rebecca said of her daughter. “She has always challenged herself to master material and learn something new,” Rebecca said. “Her computer programming ability is self-taught — she certainly didn’t get that from her parents. Every now and then I remind her: I did teach you a few things back in the day.”

For a twenty-something in his first job, the opportunity to drive a BMW or a Mini which may not be in their normal means at that age is a nice perk.” Nearing its fifth year in Hilliard, the multinational corporation continues to expand with 850 associates — 60 percent being permanently employed by BMW. Orchowski calls the Hilliard location a “center of competency.” For example, call center services will be extended to Mexico by July from Hilliard. Currently, the financial center has bilingual service representatives who can field calls within 20 seconds from customers about their loan or lease in French and English, while their supervisors monitor how the call is handled. On March 22-23, potential members of the U.S. Olympic team will speak to BMW’s employees in Hilliard about their experiences. The company is a sponsor for some athletes for the 2012 Olympic Games in London. A Canadian flag flies outside the building, and BMW Financial Services will have a fun-themed Canadian Day on March 24 for its employees. The second week of April, Hilliard will be host to 75-80 of BMW’s senior leader-

ship worldwide at a conference to “come here to tour and learn a little bit about what we do, and hopefully take away some ideas of how they can emulate that on a worldwide basis,” Orchowski said. They will see several J.D. Power awards for the service provided by the Hilliard location in the lobby, next to some BMWs. Interestingly, the 5550 Britton Parkway address has two entrances for two businesses. In addition to BMW Financial Services, there’s a division called Alphera Financial Services. President Frederick Isele said Alphera

was created in 2002, and was launched in the United States in 2006. “BMW Financial Services, they cover all BMW automotive and motorcycles, Mini, Rolls-Royce,” Isele said. “And then we cover everything else non-BMW. We finance everything from a Kia to a Ford to an Aston Martin.” Dealers of different makes visit Alphera, which topped BMW Financial Services last year in the Power Awards for retail financing, Isele said. He attributes part of the success to community involvement. “I bring the entire team up for our national meeting, and we dedicate one of those days for volunteering at the MidOhio Food Bank in Grove City,” Isele said. “It’s an opportunity not only to give back to the community, but it’s also a great teambuilding exercise. You really get to know people outside the traditional work environment.” Officials said the Hilliard presence of BMW leads to increased sales in central Ohio through clients such as Midwestern Auto Group and Kelly BMW (BMW Financial Services) and Germain Motor Company and Crown Eurocars (Alphera Financial Services).

Some of the basics taught ‘office boys’ still good today

(614) 272-0210

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 — brightfaced, 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 importance of always being 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 ED through all of this, anybody LENTZ 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 business 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.

Chamber to give out three awards at meeting By GARY BUDZAK ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Three awards will be presented at the Hilliard Area Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Meeting, 11:30 a.m. Friday (March 18) at Heritage Golf Club, 3525 Heritage Club Drive. The business awards will go to: • Insource in the category of established business; • The Old Bag of Nails Pub for emerging business; • Josh Hornik of Security Plus Insurance Agency for most involved volunteer. According to the chamber, the established business award goes to a chamber member that is “innovative and civic-minded.” Insource, founded in 1999, has 12 employees and specializes in thirdparty negotiation services between large companies and UPS and FedEx, saving its clients more than $1 billion. The company, located on Northwest Parkway, was ranked the 531st fastest growing company in the United States, according to Inc. Magazine. Brett Febus is the founder and owner of Insource Spend Management

Group. The emerging business category is for a chamber member business that has shown a consistent pattern of growth since it has been established in Hilliard within the past five years. The Old Bag of Nails Pub opened on Main Street in fall of 2008. It is a participant in Taste of Hilliard and Old Hilliardfest. The most involved volunteer award is given to a chamber member who works behind the scenes. Hornik, who has been with Security Plus on Cemetery Road for five years, is a Davidson graduate who has lived in Hilliard all his life. His activities with the HACC include being a Chamber Ambassador, starting the Morning Networking Group, working on Holly Fest, Business Expos, and Taste of Hilliard. Hornik writes, “The Hilliard Chamber has been a great resource

for me over the years as it has helped me develop long-lasting relationships with many local business owners who I am now proud to call friends.” Also at the luncheon, there will be a look at the state of the chamber and its activities in 2010. State Sen. Jim Hughes and State Rep. Cheryl Grossman are expected to be on hand. “It’s a great community event, and we welcome everyone to attend and celebrate our three award winners,” said Libby Gierach, president/CEO of the Hilliard Area Chamber of Commerce. She said reservations are required and need to be made by March 15. Admission is $25 for members; or $30 for others. For more information or to make reservations, call the chamber at (614) 8767666.

apart.” The trustees also: • Approved Fire Chief David Long’s purchase of Lifepak 15 heart monitors; and paying for mosquito spraying by the Franklin County Board of Health. • Discussed American Electric Power’s request for right of way along Dublin Road at Wesley Chapel. “They need to move transmission lines from the south side of Dublin Road to the north side by the cemetery,” Montgomery said. Action was delayed until the March 21 meeting.




“These general discussions have been going on for years and years,” said township administrator Wayne Warner after the meeting. “We’ve talked about widening the road, improving the road, and we’ve had public meetings.” Warner said the Franklin County Engineer’s office decided before they get into the road improvement issues on Schirtzinger, they needed to study the drainage issues, and that came out last fall. In the meantime, “the pavement’s just falling

Helen King to celebrate her 100th birthday

Children’s storyteller visits Ridgewood By GARY BUDZAK ThisWeek Community Newspapers The author of “14 Cows for America” and other popular books is teaching Ridgewood Elementary School students how to tell their own story. Carmen Agra Deedy was scheduled to meet with all grade levels at Ridgewood March 9 to tell some of her stories. On March 10, Deedy planned to conduct workshops on writing with third-, fourthand fifth-graders. Carmen Agra Christina Dorr, media spe- Deedy cialist at Ridgewood, said the writing workshops would help inspire students on their own service project. “The children are going to be writing stories and publishing books on themselves, their family and how their family chooses to share with others,” Dorr said. “We’re publishing them here, and students will deliver them to Nationwide Children’s Hospital to share with children there.” Dorr said reading “14 Cows for America” inspired her to contact Deedy. The story is based on a New York Times article about a doctor who witnessed the tragic events of September 11 unfold and told members of the Masai tribe what had happened on

March 9, 2011

a visit to his native Kenya in the spring of 2002. The tribe donated 14 cows, a large number for them, to the United States in response. The U.S. embassy in Nairobi now has them, and the herd has grown to 35 cows. “The book almost brought tears to my eyes the first time I saw it. I wanted to connect this woman with our kids, and I wanted them to see a picture of a culture so very different from ours, and to see that no matter who we are we have something to offer to others,” Dorr said. Dorr wrote a grant to the Hilliard Education Foundation, which is funding Deedy’s visit along with Ridgewood’s PTO. Deedy, 50, who lives in Atlanta, said she visits schools and talks to students half of the year. Her three daughters helped inspire her to write. “I really love picture books, kept reading them to the girls, and tried my hand at one, and I was very lucky,” Deedy said. Children are amazed to see Deedy tell her stories without the aid of technology, she said. “In the last 3-5 years, these kids look at you like you are performing the most audacious of magic tricks,” Deedy said. “How did you do that? Forty-five minutes, no way! How did you remember it? I love just going in and telling them stories.”

Helen King is celebrating her 100th birthday on Sunday, March 13, from 2 to 4 p.m. in the Hilliard United Methodist Church. “She’s a pretty incredible person,” said King’s granddaughter, Elizabeth Finke. “She’s the most caring individual.” Helen was born in Galloway on March 11, 1911. She performed her first elocution at the age of 6; graduated from Wynter’s School of Expression in Columbus in 1924; and West High School in 1929. On April 17, 1938, Helen married Robert King, and they were married for 68 years. The Kings lived in a farmhouse on Frazell Road that the King family had owned since 1853. Helen was a farm wife on a dairy farm, raising chickens, hogs, cattle and two sons. She still gardens, cans and bakes cookies, and in 2010, was named Woman of the Year by the Franklin County Farm Bureau. Helen King has lived in Hilliard for 73 years, and is a member of the HUMC, the Hilliard Senior Center, and the Northwest Franklin County Historical Society. Her volunteer activities include the American Heart Association, American Cancer Society, and March of Dimes. She has five grandchildren and five great grandchildren. Helen King

Libraries again offering help for job seekers By GARY SEMAN JR. ThisWeek Community Newspapers

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 library keeps responding to the cus-

tomers’ 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 Job 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 one-hour 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.

Program announced to help fund community 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 neigh-

bors 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 cre-

ate 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 ap-

plicant 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 Colum-

bus Foundation website at The application can be found under Columbus Foundation Grants, Fund for Targeted Needs, in the Neighborhood Grants and Community Gardens section. The grant applications are due by Friday, April 1. Winners will be announced at the Earth Day celebration at Franklin Park Conservatory on April 23.

Delande captures state title Wildcats junior 1st champ for coach By JEREMY STEWART ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Seconds before the match became official, Hilliard Davidson High School wrestling coach Dominic DiSabato went airborne. Chase Delande then turned toward his coach and the crowd with a hand in the air. He had just won the Division I state championship at 145 pounds, the first Wildcats wrestler to do so in DiSabato’s 12 years as coach. “I knew I was coach DiSabato’s first state champ and that’s an honor,” said Delande, who defeated Massillon Perry’s Tanner Lemon 9-4 in the championship match March 5 at Ohio State. “(Assistant coach Josh Chilcote) is like my other brother. He was always talking about me being state champ and I would be like, ‘Well, that’s cool and all,’but now I’m here and it feels great.” Delande used a double-leg takedown to break a 3-3 tie with a minute to go in the third period. The move was strong enough that Delande turned it into two back points and a 7-4 lead. He had taken a 2-0 lead 40 seconds into the match and scored another escape to make it 3-0 in the second period. Lemon eventually scored to make it 3-2 with 35 seconds to go in the second period. Lemon tied it 3-3 on an escape, and Delande countered immediately with a double-leg. Two more back points with time winding down clinched it. “I got one of his ankles and just pulled it to me,” Delande said of the tiebreaking move. “I thought I could do it and take some of his fight out of him and I did and got the double back (points).” Delande now has won state titles in two sports. He was a starting cornerback for the football team when it beat Cleveland Glenville 16-15 for the Division I state championship in 2009. J.D. Detmer also accomplished that feat as a kicker on the same state championship football team, and he helped the soccer team win a state title in 2007. Kicking for Davidson’s state championship football team in 2006 was Colby Catlett, who also

was a member of the soccer team in 2007. “He’s just a winner,” DiSabato said of Delande. “It’s nothing that just started happening. He’s been a winner his whole life.” Delande finished the season 46-2. The state championship was the 100th win of his high school career. “I thought about it every night when I went to bed,” Delande said. “I would stand in the mirror with my headphones on saying if I really win this, that would be crazy. After the first two rounds of the state tournament I was thinking, ‘This is within reach. I just have to do my best.’ And I think I wrestled my best and I got it.” Davidson’s other state qualifier, Angelo DiSabato, placed fifth at 119 when Youngstown

Boardman’s John Dillon forfeited the fifth-place match. Davidson ended up with 35 points, placing it 13th behind champion Lakewood St. Edward (187). •After consecutive trips to the state tournament and nothing to show for it, Andrew Higgins of Bradley finally broke through in his final chance. Higgins placed third in Division II at 152. He defeated Medina Highland’s Tyler Bloniak 117 in the third-place match. Although he was disappointed that he didn’t win a state title, Higgins was satisfied with his victory over Bloniak, who was ranked second in Brian Brakeman’s High School Wrestling Forecast.

Espenschied’s shot makes Jags district champs

Darby’s Parsley finishes 12th in state all-around

By BRAD EMERINE ThisWeek Community Newspapers

It’s time for some interior decorating in the gymnasium at 2year-old Hilliard Bradley High School. The girls basketball team will be the first to get a championship banner on the wall. The Jaguars captured the school’s first district title March 3 when junior Brooke Espenschied scored with under a second remaining to beat top-seeded Olentangy 48-46 in a Division II final at Ohio Dominican University. “When I saw it go in, I just leaped up and glanced over to the bench and they were all running toward me,” Espenschied said. “After that I just remember running to the midcourt circle and all of us were jumping up and down and screaming and our crowd was going completely nuts.” Bradley improved to 20-3 and

The Jaguars had a 46-40 lead with just under a minute remaining against Olentangy, but Braves point guard Brooke Zwayer banked in a 3-pointer with 48.5 seconds left and Olivia Zwayer tied it with a 3-pointer. “I think maybe we were a little shook after the second one to tie it,” said Espenschied, who had seven points. “The first one was lucky, but I was concerned when the second one fell through. But (coach Kathy Lindsey) called a good timeout when we were near midcourt and there was six seconds left.” Katie Lindsey took the inbound pass and got the ball to Espenschied, who drove the right By Paul Vernon/ThisWeek side and hit a running floater Bradley’s Brooke Espenschied reacts to making the winning shot from about seven feet. with under one second remaining as the Jaguars beat Olentangy

As Meghan Parsley prepared for the individual competition at the state gymnastics meet March 5 at Hilliard Bradley, coach Carol Eskay didn’t provide much of a pep talk for the Hilliard Darby High School senior. Parsley didn’t need one. In her third appearance at state, Parsley was the area’s top individual finisher, placing in the top 12 three times. The Panthers senior tied Hudson’s Alyssa Gurreri and Troy’s Jennifer Hansen for 10th on uneven bars (8.95), tied Mentor’s Allie Arthur for 11th on balance beam (8.9) and was 12th in the all-around (35.75). Parsley also was 17th on the floor exercise (8.95) and tied Arthur and Stow-Munroe Falls’ Allison Marino for 23rd on vault (8.925). “I try to help, but her drive comes from within,” Eskay said of Parsley. “She knew what she

wanted to accomplish this season and knew what that would take.” Even before the final results were released, Parsley knew she was having a solid performance. Her eyes got wide when she saw her score on bars. She placed fifth on bars at district on Feb. 26 at Worthington Kilbourne with an 8.6. “I’m ecstatic with anything close to a nine at the state meet,” said Parsley, who was 28th in the all-around last year (33.975) and 34th (32.625) in 2008. “This is my last meet and I’m really putting it all out there.” Parsley, the district champion in the all-around (35.55), was one of three gymnasts from the Hilliard area competing in the individual competition. Darby freshman Nicole Norris and Bradley junior Vicki Horton joined Parsley in competing on beam. See GYMNASTICS, page B2

Turnovers doom Davidson in district semi By AARON BLANKENSHIP

ThisWeek Community Newspapers

•Record: 16-7 overall, 10-4 (third) in OCCCentral •Seniors lost: Sam Bradway, Rebekah Kauffman, Kelsey Sicker and Ashley Weethee •Key returnees: Lauren Bates, Maddison Blackwell, Katie Dymek and Madie Long

Hilliard Davidson High School girls basketball coach Joy Taylor told her players that they would need to take special care of the ball against Reynoldsburg’s swarming defensive pressure to give themselves a chance to upset the top-seeded Raiders in a Division I district semifinal March 2 at Olentangy Liberty. However, Reynoldsburg scored 20 points off 10 turnovers in the first half en route to a 58-39 win over the 12thseeded Wildcats. The Raiders, who led 34-15 at halftime and 50-26 after three quarters, were fueled by Aliyah Zantt, who made four 3-pointers and scored 26 points. The Wildcats, who finished 16-7 overall, were led by sophomore guard Lauren Bates, who scored eight points.

Junior forward Katie Dymek and sophomore forward Ashley Hurt both added seven points. “We worked on taking care of the ball, but Reynoldsburg is so quick and athletic and they’re one of the best teams in the state,” Taylor said. “They forced those 10 turnovers, which resulted in 20 easy points for them in the first half, and without those turnovers it would have been a close game. But they deserve credit because they have some good players who hurt us both offensively and defensively.”

It was a successful first season for Taylor, who compiled a 75-75 record at Loudonville the previous seven seasons. After struggling to a 6-5 start, the Wildcats won eight of their last nine regular-season games and finished third in the OCC-Central Division at 10-4, behind Upper Arlington (13-1) and Dublin Coffman (11-3), and ahead of Thomas Worthington (9-5), Central Crossing (5-9), Worthington Kilbourne (5-9), Hilliard Darby (3-11) and Westland (0-14). After losing to Thomas 47-43 on Dec. 10 and Coffman 56-39 on Jan. 4 during the first round of OCC-Central play, the Wildcats bounced back to beat the Cardinals 57-43 on Jan. 25 and defeat the Shamrocks 55-45 on Feb. 8. Davidson also beat Darby twice this season, winning 58-37 on Dec. 3 and

51-42 on Jan. 13, to take a 7-3 lead in the all-time series. The Wildcats carried their momentum into the district tournament, as they beat Groveport 50-33 in the first round Feb. 19 and defeated Dublin Jerome 40-30 in the second round Feb. 25 before falling to Reynoldsburg. “The girls are bummed about the way our season ended, but when they look back, they’ll be proud of what they did this year,” Taylor said. “We saw so much individual and team improvement, and it was nice to beat some of the teams that beat us earlier in the year.” Davidson loses only one senior starter in forward Sam Bradway, who averaged 5.2 points and was honorable mention all-league. Four starters are expected to return in Bates, Dymek, junior guard Madie Long and sophomore post player Mad-

dison Blackwell. Bates averaged 9.0 points and was first-team all-league and honorable mention all-district. Long averaged 9.6 points and was second-team all-league and honorable mention all-district. Blackwell averaged 6.7 points and was special mention all-league, and Dymek and Hurt averaged 6.5 and 3.9 points, respectively. “Our seniors were our leaders who kept everyone calm and together on the floor, and they will be missed,” Taylor said. “We have a large group of players coming back, and hopefully they’ve learned through this experience. I’m proud of how far they’ve come, but we’ve still got a lot of work to do to get to where we want to be.”

GYMNASTICS Continued from page B1 Horton tied Holland Springfield’s Jacey Gray for 21st (8.6) and Norris tied Liberty Township Lakota East’s Natalie Potts and Cincinnati Sycamore’s Sarah Wesselkamper for 25th (8.375). Eskay, who coaches Bradley, Darby and Davidson, said both Norris and Horton will provide inspiration for their respective teams next year. “It motivates the other girls to let them know that on any given day, you could make it to state,” Eskay said. “It was a nice way to end the season.” “It’s been my dream to go to state ever since I was a freshman,” said Horton, who tied Big Walnut’s Natalie Mathews for fifth (8.7) on beam at district to qualify for state. “This year I surprised myself by making it here. There are a lot of great girls here and I thought maybe next year I’d make it.” In Parsley and Amy Wright, Darby will be the only Hilliard team losing seniors. But since all three teams practice and compete together, Eskay said it seemed like all three squads were losing someone from their program. “They served as the role models and leaders for 27 girls,” Eskay said of Parsley and Wright. “They supported everyone and made the younger ones feel just as much a part of things as the girls who have been on the team for two or three years.” None of the Hilliard teams qualified for the state team com-

Club Hockey

’Cats, state qualifiers try to regain traction By KURTIS ADAMS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

At a glance

Hilliard was dominant in winning the Greater Columbus High School Club Hockey League’s Blue Jackets Cup for the first time. The Wildcats won all four games, outscoring their opponents by a combined score of 23-5. Casey Fulton, a senior wing player from Hilliard Davidson, anchored the effort offensively with seven points, including five assists. Matt Hannan, a junior center from Darby, scored four goals and totaled five points, and goaltenders Doug Martin, a senior from Jonathan Alder, and Gage Robison, a junior from Franklin Heights, posted two victories apiece. Hilliard defeated Northeast 62 in the final, but that game was played Feb. 20. That means that the four GCHSCHL qualifiers for the Buckeye Cup state club tournament — Hilliard, Northeast, PRPC and Newark — will enter the seventh-year event having not played a meaningful game in nearly three weeks. The state tournament runs Friday, March 11, through Sunday, March 13, in Canton and Wooster. “You just have to make sure your practices are (conducted at) game speed,” first-year Hilliard coach Mark Mead said. “We’ve done a lot of inner-squad scrimmages and scrimmaged against some of the other local teams. That’s about all we can do to stay ready and be prepared.” Newark and Northeast were among the league’s best teams during the second half of the regular season. The Generals went 7-2-1 down the stretch to forge a tie for fourth place with Athens, and they won the tiebreaker to qualify for the Buckeye Cup for a fifth consecutive season by finishing 12-11-1 in the GCHSCHL with 25 points. They followed a similar path to state in previous years, capturing the state title in 2009. “We worked the magic again,” Newark coach Don Jennings said. “It was just another amazing late-

Below is the schedule for the Buckeye Cup state club hockey tournament: MARCH 11 — 5:30 p.m., PRPC vs. North Royalton (Canton), Mason vs. Painesville Riverside (Wooster); 7:30 p.m., Liberty Township Lakota East vs. Newark (Canton), Hilliard vs. Oxford Butler County (Wooster); 9:30 p.m., Jackson vs. Bellbrook (Canton), Medina vs. Northeast (Wooster); MARCH 12 — 8 a.m., PRPC vs. Mason (Canton); 8:20 a.m., Newark vs. Riverside (Wooster); 10 a.m., Jackson vs. Hilliard (Canton); 11:30 a.m., North Royalton vs. Butler County (Wooster); noon, Lakota East vs. Medina (Canton); 1:30 p.m., Bellbrook vs. Northeast (Wooster); 5 p.m., Riverside vs. PRPC (Canton), Mason vs. Newark (Wooster); 7 p.m., Butler County vs. Jackson (Canton), Hilliard vs. North Royalton (Wooster); 9 p.m., Northeast vs. Lakota East (Canton), Medina vs. Bellbrook (Wooster); MARCH 13 — 8 a.m., No. 1 seed vs. No. 4 seed semifinal (Canton); 10 a.m., No. 2 seed vs. No. 3 seed semifinal (Canton); 4 p.m., final (Canton)

19-3 with 22 points. The Cleveland-based North Coast Hockey League, on the other hand, awards its four state berths following the completion of its postseason tournament, which is a spread over two weeks and ended March 5. The state qualifiers were Jackson, Medina, Painesville Riverside and North Royalton. Jackson was the regular-season champion at 10-0-1 with 21 points. “It’s absolutely a different situation,” Jennings said. “Our league has battled against waiting three weeks to play the state tournament, but Jackson, as the host team, won. Once the weather warms, it’s extremely hard holding onto the players as the spring sports get started. If this keeps up, we’ll have to address maybe moving the start of our regular season back another week.” There could be some positives that come out of the delay, however. For example, PRPC slumped toward the end of the regular season as injuries mounted. The Ice Prowlers still won’t have leading scorer Kyle Hyer, a Pickerington North sophomore who is out with a broken collarbone, but defenseman Sean Straker has had more time to recover from a concussion that kept him out of the Blue Jackets Cup. Hilliard should benefit from getting right wing Drew Kennedy, a junior from Darby, back on the ice for the first time since December. He helped key the Wildcats’14-0 start before suffering a knee injury. PRPC is the only team in any of the three leagues to qualify for the Buckeye Cup every year since the state tournament’s inception in 2005. Lakota East is the defending state champion, but it lost early in the CHSHL’s tournament as Bellbrook defeated Mason in the final. Hilliard advanced to state for a third consecutive season and fourth time overall. Northeast is making its second appearance, having first reached state in 2009.

season run. Every game we played at the end was a playoff game, really.” The trick now for Newark is to regain the momentum it might have lost given that the regular season concluded Feb. 13. The Generals went 0-2 in the Blue Jackets Cup, as did regular-season league champion PRPC. PRPC finished first in the GCHSCHL at 15-7-2 with 32 points as Hilliard and Northeast both finished 14-7-3 with 31 points. The Storm went 8-2 to end the regular season but lost twice to Hilliard in the Blue Jackets Cup. It played six games in the tournament over three days, including three in a 24-hour period. “You can practice and scrimmage all you want, but it’s not the same,” Northeast coach Mark Fixari said. “There’s nothing like a real game to keep you sharp.” The 12-team field for the state tournament also features Liberty Township Lakota East, Mason, Oxford Butler County and Bellbrook after they finished in the top four of the Cincinnati High School League. Lakota East was the regular-season champion at

Bradley’s Jasmine Junkins (right) knocks the ball from the hands of Olentangy’s Megan Beidelman during their Division II district title game March 3 at Ohio Dominican.

JAGUARS Continued from page B1 “Six seconds is a pretty good amount of time left,” coach Lindsey said. “We knew they would cover Bailey Pierron because she had a good game, especially in the first half when she had 12 of her 18 points. I told the girls that if they got the ball, and didn’t have a good shot immediately, to drive to the basket. We were in the double bonus and any foul would have been two free throws.” Senior Kellie Roudabush said her confidence wasn’t shaken when the game was tied. “It’s nice to have the last possession when the score is tied, because at worst, you go to an overtime unless you turn the ball over and they get a score,” said Roudabush, who had eight points. “I’m not saying there wasn’t some nerves and that there was no pressure. I just felt confident we could get it done. It’s a great accomplishment and it was one of the goals we set at the beginning of the season.” Jasmine Junkins added 11 points. She also played strong in a 55-40 win over DeSales in a

district semifinal March 1 at Pickerington North that avenged a 4743 loss to the Stallions in a district final last season. Junkins had seven points and 11 rebounds and controlled the paint early against DeSales as the Jaguars raced to a 29-12 halftime lead and led 4220 entering the fourth quarter. The Stallions closed the gap to nine points with about two minutes left, but the Jaguars pulled away at the end. Roudabush scored 13 points, Pierron had 12 and Espenschied added 11. The Jaguars hope they have an opportunity to add to their banner count in a regional final at 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 11, at Springfield. The Bradley-Carroll winner will play either Dayton Chaminade Julienne or Kettering Alter, which was the state runner-up last season. Chaminade Julienne was 167 before playing Alter, which was 19-5. It was the third meeting between the Greater Catholic League foes this season. Chaminade Julienne swept the Knights 39-35 and 56-49 in league play en route to winning the title. Alter beat Chaminade Julienne

36-34 in a regional final last year. The Eagles are led in scoring by post player Raytea Long (11.9) and perimeter shooters Emily Michael (9.8) and Simmone Gage (6.8). Long also averages 9.3 rebounds for Chaminade Julienne, which overcame a 14-point deficit entering the fourth quarter to beat Cincinnati Wyoming 65-58 in overtime March 4. Alter, which was ranked eighth in the final state poll, has been led in scoring by guard Allison Bockrath (12.6), post player Whitney Dabbelt (10) and shooting guard Courtney Christie (8.6). But, Dabbelt suffered a knee injury and did not play in a 54-41 win over Springfield Kenton Ridge in a district final March 4. “When you get to this point, all the teams are strong,” coach Lindsey said. “It’s three large parochial schools with tradition and us in our regional. We’re going to continue to play hard and try to play our style. We’re not going to stray from our tournament motto of ‘team first.’”

“Everyone’s goal is to win it,” Higgins said. “I just picked the wrong weight class to try to do that. I just wrestled my best and I still upset that kid for thirdfourth. He was ranked above me all year and I came out and beat him, so it feels pretty good to take third.” Conor Driscoll also reached the awards podium for Bradley, placing eighth at 145. Driscoll broke an arm during the football season and had to have it broken again after it didn’t heal properly. Both breaks required eight-week recoveries. “I’m a better wrestler now than I was if I hadn’t broken the arm because I was able to refine,” Driscoll said. “I have some tools now that I didn’t have before.” Jake Zoller also competed for Bradley, losing both of his matches at 140. The Jaguars (20.5) placed 22nd behind champion St. Paris Graham (230.5). •Leading Darby at the Division I state tournament was Sufyan El-Geroushi, who placed eighth at heavyweight. El-Geroushi was pinned by Sandusky’s Mike Brown in 2 minutes, 7 seconds in a seventh-place match. El-Geroushi, whose primary sport is football, was happy with his performance. “It feels awesome,” El-Geroushi said. “I do this part time and it’s great to be rewarded like this.” El-Geroushi earned a spot in a placement match with a 5-3 win over Olentangy Liberty’s Luke Fleming in a second-round consolation match. He scored a takedown with 10 seconds left to seal the win. Also competing for Darby were Tyler Bowens at 160 and Cameron Longwell at 119. They both finished 0-2. Darby scored four points to tie five other teams for 56th.

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-


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

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. The interior – and store sign – at Taste of Thai is bright yellow for a reason, as the color symbolizes warmth and cheerfulness, he said. By Eric George/ThisWeek He said there’s still Taste of Thai owner Anuson “Chris” Khumauksorn prepares his pad Thai a learning curve for with rice noodles, shrimp, chicken, eggs, ground peanuts, beansprouts and some customers, who scallion in pad Thai sauce. 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 SanSu, a Korean restaurant, to Jae Uk Jong. Wada is the founder of the two local Genji Japanese Steakhouses, among other enterprises.

In an economy that still struggles to gain traction, William Glover walks a fine line. The chef and owner of Sage American Bistro in the University District must balance cost, quality and value. “I think we’re as competitive as it gets in that regard,” said Glover, who is now a contributor to Food & Wine. Part of the reason for his success, he said, is his staff. “I’ve got a great team,” he said. Not to mention the effort and creativity that seem to go a long way toward customer satisfaction, he said. His new spring menu will offer a scallop nestled in ginger aioli and crowned with red pepper marmalade, with a streak of balsamic reduction accenting the plate. While seasons play an important part in the menu, whimsy is just as important, he said. Glover said if he’s inspired, he will change the menu more than four times a year. “I don’t like to draw lines in the sand,” he said. Glover said he’s been somewhat restrained in pricing, never

And purveyors have gotten more savvy in that regard, not only carrying more regional ingredients, but showing chefs how to get them. “It’s amazing right now what’s happening as far as local food sources go,” he said ■ Calorie Countess Jennifer Burton continues her series on weight-loss tips.

By Dana Turner & Cara Pollock Hilliard Bradley High School’s student of the month for March is sophomore Josh Guy. He is being recognized for his hard work ethic and friendly personality. His AP US History teacher David Whitt has a lot of respect for Josh and his presence in the classroom. Whitt said, “Josh is just a great kid. He’s always been able to demonstrate outstanding work ethic, regardless of what he is dealing with. He is a fantastic example of a student and I respect him for his hard work and his friendships with the other students.” His great attitude and kindness is greatly valued among his peers. Sophomore and friend of Guy Shane Cornell said, “Josh is one of the most positive, kind-hearted friends I have. He really sets a good example for other people because he is always working hard. It amazes me that he can be so kind to others no matter what.” Guy’s success in school is not only seen by his teachers, but his friends notice, too. Christian Diedrich, sophomore and friend of Guy, said, “[Guy] is a great guy and I really appreciate our friendship. We get along really well and I respect all of his efforts towards school.” Josh is very appreciative and grateful to be named Student of the Month. “It’s nice to know that I am being recognized. I am honored that my teachers and peers think so highly of me,” said Guy. “I try my best in school and with swimming and I spend a lot of time dedicating myself to the things that are important to me.”

Tax Series IRS Has $1.1 billion for people who have not filed a 2007 Income Tax Return WASHINGTON — Refunds totaling more than $1.1 billion may be waiting for nearly 1.1 million people who did not file a federal income tax return for 2007, announced the Internal Revenue Service. However, to collect the money, a return for 2007 must be filed with the IRS no later than Monday, April 18, 2011. The IRS estimates that half of these potential 2007 refunds are $640 or more. In Ohio, the median amount is $620 with the total funds to be collected at $30,240. Some people may not have filed because they had too little income to require filing a tax return even though they had taxes withheld from their wages or made quarterly estimated payments. In cases where a return was not filed, the law provides most taxpayers with a three-year window of opportunity for claiming a refund. If no return is filed to claim a refund within three years, the money becomes property of the U.S. Treasury. For 2007 returns, the window closes on April 18, 2011. The law requires that the return be properly addressed, mailed and postmarked by that date. There is no penalty for filing a late return qualifying for a refund. The IRS reminds taxpayers seeking a 2007 refund that their checks will be held if they have not filed tax returns for 2008 and 2009. In addition, the refund will be applied to any amounts still owed to the IRS, and may be used to offset unpaid child support or past due federal debts such as student loans. By failing to file a return, people stand to lose more than a refund of taxes withheld or paid during 2007. In addition, many low-and-moderate income workers may not have claimed the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC). The EITC helps individuals and families whose incomes are below certain thresholds, which in 2007 were $39,783 for those with two or more children, $35,241 for people with one child, and $14,590 for those with no children. For more information, visit the EITC Home Page. Current and prior year tax forms and instructions are available on the Forms and Publications page of or by calling toll-free 1-800-TAX-FORM (1-800-829-3676). For more information, visit
