City council sets deadline for COIC By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Work on rezoning the Central Ohio Innovation Corridor should wrap up in July. Dublin City Council on March 14 set a July deadline for city staff and the planning and zoning commission on rezoning for the COIC.

The deadline stems from a rezoning request for about 4 acres within the COIC. According to Ben Hale, who represented the owners of land on the northeast corner of Shier Rings and Eiterman roads, work has been going on to rezone the small parcel since 2006. Zoning for the Central Ohio

Innovation Center began in 2008, but rezoning is again changing for the Central Ohio Innovation Corridor, an extension of the plan that eventually would allow several types of development. Work on expanding the Central Ohio Innovation Center to a corridor began last year but a turnaround time of three months is

expected for developers to attain required permits and approval. “We’re looking at a significant shift in density,” Dublin planner Carson Combs said. “We’re looking at balancing our economic portfolio to provide all kinds of economic development in the future.” The city is working on frame-

work and code changes for the area that runs along state Route 161 and south along I-270. Combs said the work also would include the rezoning of land within the corridor to include offices, research, labs, clean manufacturing and assembly and support services such as retail. “We’re still on the timeline to

get rezoning completed by July 6,” he said. The focus on the plan is to “have the most flexibility possible in terms of development,” Combs said. The planning and zoning commission initially recommended See CITY COUNCIL, page A2

The four Dublin sophomores choreographed the flash mob, which included about 65 students from all three high schools and all of the middle schools. The group ended the performance by holding towels with “Drug Free in Dublin” printed on them, as part of the Dublin A.C.T. Coalition to prevent and reduce substance abuse.

Census numbers show Dublin top suburb By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

In 1987 Dublin officially obtained city status with more than 5,000 residents, but numbers from the most recent government headcount have identified Dublin as Columbus’ most populous suburb.

While all of central Ohio saw growth over the past 10 years, Dublin’s population increased by 33 percent between 2000 and 2010. Franklin County increased from about 1-million residents in 2000 to nearly 1.2-million in 2010. The population of Union County, which encompasses Dublin’s western borders, grew in pop-

ulation by almost 28 percent, while Delaware County saw a population increase of 58 percent. According to U.S. Census numbers, Dublin had a population of 31,392 in 2000. Estimations placed the population in 2005 at 35,108 and at 38,536 in 2008. Official numbers from the 2010 cen-

sus say Dublin currently has 41,571 residents. City manager Marsha Grigsby said the numbers released by the U.S. Census weren’t a big surprise. “That’s one thing we monitor on a regular basis. Every year we get infor-

“A community that cares” was the mantra of the 2011 state-of-the-city address. For the state of the city, Dublin officials highlighted accomplishments and big events that happened over the past year while focusing on a caring community. Dublin City Schools Superintendent David Axner presented the district’s recent accomplishments: a state rating of Excellent with Distinction, $11.5-million in expenditure reDavid Axner ductions, AAA credit rating and the construction of 12 new classrooms without asking voters for extra funding. Dublin also focused on 2010 successes. City Manager Marsha Grigsby kicked off her address by highlighting economic development within the city. “We have a strong history of economic de- Marsha Grigsby velopment incentives,” she said, noting that in 2010 seven economic development agreements retained about 900 jobs and created 250. “We will continue to focus on new and See GRIGSBY’S, page A2

Dublin 6-year-old dies End of an era in playground accident Cason retires as ThisWeek executive editor By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

A 6-year-old Dublin boy died March 12 after an accident playing while on an outdoor slide. Dublin police received a call from a resident in the 5000 block of Donegal Cliffs Drive at 5:18 p.m. March 12 who said Noah Maloney was unconscious after an incident involving an outdoor slide, a news release from the city said. According to a recording of the call obtained by The Columbus Dispatch, Maloney got en-

tangled in a rope while playing. Washington Township Paramedics transported Maloney to Dublin Methodist Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 6:14 p.m. the release said. According to the Dispatch, Franklin County Coroner Jan Gorniak said in a preliminary report that Maloney appeared to have died of ligature strangulation. As of ThisWeek’s press time Tuesday, Dublin police were still investigating the incident, but did

Friday, March 18, marks the end of an era at ThisWeek Community Newspapers. Late that afternoon, vice president and executive editor Ben Cason will shut down his computer, gather his cell phone and coat and quietly stroll out of the newsroom the way he has every week since 1993. However, come Monday morning, for the first time in 18 years, he won’t be leading a newsroom discussion on politics or the NCAA basketball tournament. Cason announced his retirement to ThisWeek staffers March 11, concluding a

career that spanned the height of the Watergate era as an editor at The Washington Post to building one of the nation’s most respected community newspaper organizations. Under Cason’s Ben Cason leadership, ThisWeek Community Newspapers have won hundreds of state, regional and national awards for journalistic excellence. More importantly, general manager Stephen Zonars said, Cason won the loyalty of hundreds of thousands of central Ohio readers.

“Ben has been the heartbeat of ThisWeek Community Newspapers for 18 years, and his contributions are immeasurable,” Zonars said. “On his watch, the readership of our papers has grown by more than 200,000 people, which may be the most honest reflection of how valuable the public finds our coverage, which is the product of Ben’s leadership in the newsroom.” Zonars said Cason’s legacy is the team of journalists he has assembled at ThisWeek. “We are indebted to Ben for attracting bright and passionate reporters and editors who share his love of community news and See CASON RETIRES, page A5

City council sets deadline for COIC Continued from page A1 approval of the rezoning of the 4 acres in 2009, but with recent developments recommended disproval. Combs said the land would be included in city-driven rezoning that should be finished by July, but Hale said the property owners want to start marketing the property. Council member Marilee Chinnici-

Zuercher said the rezoning that has taken five years has been handled badly, but she didn’t want to approve rezoning for the land when it could be rezoning again soon for the COIC. Council set a firm deadline of July 6 for the rezoning of the COIC, and the applicant agreed to have the request tabled. In other council news, council heard the first reading of an ordinance that will

mean the $255,640 purchase of 3.8 acres on Dublin Road from the Muirfield Village Golf Club. The land eventually will host a $2.7million water tank, and the site was chosen last year after gathering public input on a few different locations in the area. City engineer Paul Hammersmith said an environmental study would be completed prior to the closing of the sale. Council will hear the second and final

reading March 28. Council also approved a $532,000 contract for work on the Blazer water tower. The water tower will be recoated for the first time since it was installed in the 1990s. The tower houses the Washington Township Fire Department’s station 95, and Hammersmith said they would have to be relocated during the work. “We are working with Duke Realty

to secure an office suite from which the medic service can operate during the daytime hours,” the staff report to council said. At night, the medic unit will operate out of station 91 on Shier Rings Road. The recoating will begin in April and is expected to be completed in 10 to 12 weeks. jnoblit@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekNews.com

Grigsby’s address: Dublin is in ‘excellent’ shape Continued from page A1 small business,” she said. When Cardinal Health came to Dublin in the mid-90s, Grigsby said, it had few employees. Now it’s one of Dublin’s biggest employers. Dublin’s Entrepreneurial Center was also highlighted. “One of the things that is pretty fascinating is that in one year we have attracted 53 companies to the DEC,” Grigsby said. The DEC also hosts a green integrator and Dublin is working to install an international business center there. “Now we need to look worldwide for business and business opportunities,” Grigsby said. Grigsby also noted the opening of BriHi Square in 2010, as well as being named a “Top 7 Intelligent Community” by the New York-based think tank, Intelligent Communities Forum. Last year marked major work on the Bridge Street Corridor Plan, which Grigsby said covers only about 6-percent of Dublin, but will bring walkable, urban mixed-use development. The city is currently working on studies and models for the area that runs along state Route 161 from Sawmill Road to the U.S. 33 and I-270 interchange with consultants “to make sure we’re aware of what’s truly needed in this area,” Grigsby said. Grigsby also touched on fiscal responsibility and how much the city depends on income tax revenues. Dublin experienced a decrease in income tax revenues in 2009 for the first time. “In 2010 income tax rebounded,” Grigsby said, adding that the city conservatively estimated 2011 income tax revenue to be on pace with 2009. “We’re cautiously optimistic that this year will be better than projected.” The state of the city also included a brief look into the future, including upcoming proj-

ects such as the final extension of Emerald Parkway, improvements to the intersection of Perimeter Drive and Commerce Parkway and the widening of the southern portion of Emerald Parkway, which will be completed with Columbus’ help. The city will also be working toward improvements at the U.S.

We know that in this point in the investigation … police do not believe it was anything else than a tragic accident.” At Bailey Elementary School, where Maloney attended kindergarten, the district’s crisis team was on hand to counsel children. “Our crisis team has been there all morning and will be there all day,” said Doug Baker, district information officer. “They’ll be there as long as they’re needed. Every situation is assessed on their own.” Superintendent David Axner mentioned the sudden death during the state of the city on March 14, calling it a “tragic accident,” and asked the crowd to honor Maloney and his family with a moment of silence. jnoblit@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekNews.com

Dublin to host ICF founder for ‘smart’ community honor By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

It’ll be take two as Dublin welcomes Intelligent Community Forum co-founder John Jung later this month. The city last year welcomed ICF co-founder Louis Zacharilla for a short visit in the hopes of nabbing the Intelligent Community of the Year honor, but the name was bestowed upon Suwon, South Korea. Dublin received a second chance this fall when it was named a “Smart21” community in October for the fifth year in a row by the New York-based think tank. In January, Dublin was notified it was a member of the 2011 Top Seven Intelligent Communities — for the second year in a row. As a top seven intelligent community, Dublin warrants a visit from an ICF representative. “John Jung is one of the cofounders of the ICF and since we’ve been named a top seven community again this year he is coming to town to do an on-site visit,” said deputy city manager and director of economic development Dana McDaniel. “He’ll take a look at the things we submitted in the application and do an additional assessment of us as they go forward and evaluate the top seven communities around the world and narrow it down to the number one community.” Jung will arrive in the evening on March 27 and spend the day on March 28 getting acclimated to the community.

“This is John’s first visit to the community. Louis Zacharilla has been here a couple of times,” McDaniel said. “We will orient him to Dublin and the physical space of Dublin, what we are made up of and so forth. We’ll give him the background and history, what we have going and the future. Then he’s going to meet with quite a few folks: Ohio Health, tech startups.” Because the 2011 Intelligent Community contest was based on innovative approaches to delivering healthcare while increasing productivity and eliminating unneeded costs, McDaniel said the visit will focus on some wellness initiatives and companies. “We intend to demonstrate how we leverage tech and broadband for wellness in the community,” he said. Also on March 28, the city will host a public reception for Jung from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Dublin Community Recreation Center, 5600 Post Road. “We want to do a reception to welcome him to the community,” McDaniel said. “He will use that as an opportunity to speak to the public about the Intelligent Community Forum and the purpose of his visit.” Dublin will also work to give Jung a view of how it works regionally through meetings with TechColumbus, the Ohio Supercomputer and Columbus 2020. With a focus on health and wellness, meetings with Dublin Methodist and Ohio Health are planned, as well as visits with

Dublin start-ups that focus on health. “We also have him talking to a couple of tech companies. HealthSpot … is a start-up in Dublin that’s using technology for health and wellness. The other is Neoprobe, a Dublin-based company that is doing wonderful things in the medical world,” McDaniel said. The Intelligent Community of the year is expected to be announced on June 3. Other communities that made the top seven list are: Chattanooga, Tenn.; Eindhoven, Netherlands; Issy-les-Moulineaux, France; Riverside, Cal.; Stratford, Ontario, Canada; and Windsor-Essex, Ontario, Canada.

Ne Acce w pt Dublin Methodist Hospital Pa in Welcomes tie g nt Sumit Bapna, MD s! Board-Certified in Otolaryngology (ENT)

Commentary & opinion

Head and Neck Surgery and Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Dr. Bapna has comprehensive training and experience in nasal and sinus surgery, cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the nose and face and minimally invasive treatments for facial rejuvenation.

in order was to start by cutting our own office budgets by 5 percent, for a savings of around $35.2million. Then STEVE in January, we voted to repeal STIVERS the health care law, which would cut new spending by $2.6-trillion over 10 years and reduce the deficit by $700billion. Furthermore, I joined my colleagues in cutting $100-billion from the budget for the rest of fiscal year 2011, which goes through September of this year. Now that it has passed the House, the budget for the rest of this fiscal year is now under consideration by the U.S. Senate. Lastly, I voluntarily cut my own salary by 5 percent and each month, I return that amount to the U.S Treasury to go toward paying off the national debt. These are just the first steps in the process of turning around our nation’s spending and debt crisis. As Speaker Boehner recently announced, the next step will be entitlement reform. When addressing this issue, we need to ensure that promises made are promises kept and those who are reliant on these programs today are not adversely impacted. However, we need to make certain that these programs are not just around

for our parents or ourselves but that they are still around for our children and grandchildren. The longer we put off reform of these programs, the harder it will be to fix down the road. Republicans and Democrats need to work together for Congress to make any progress on this issue. I look forward to having an open and honest conversation with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle on entitlement reform in the coming months. If we want to give our children a brighter future where they are not buried under a mountain of debt, then we need to learn to live within our means today. That is why this Congress has made reducing government spending a priority and we will continue to move forward with our commitment to restore fiscal responsibility to our country. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or comments on cutting government spending or any other federal issue. You can contact my central Ohio district office at (614) 2996415 or my Washington, D.C., office at (202) 225-2015. For more information on where I stand on the issues, you can sign up for my e-newsletter at www. stivers.house.gov.

Central Ohio events attract even more people to Dublin tract visitors to Dublin. These tournaments attract nearly 350,000 athletes and visitors. In fact, the six champiSCOTT onships held in DRING March alone generated more than $20-million for the local economy. The bureau has partnered with the OHSAA with the goal of generating future business from the state high school championships and raising awareness of Dublin as a place to stay and visit for tournament attendees. The partnership guarantees that several high school teams will stay at a Dublin hotel during select championship events held in central Ohio. It also pro-

Tourism matters

It has long been a strategy of the Dublin Convention and Visitors Bureau to not only attract new athletics events to Dublin but also to position and promote the city as a great place to stay and visit for travelers attending events held across other central Ohio communities. Such events as the Arnold Sports Festival and the numerous Ohio high school state championships are just a few examples of many that potentially could bring millions of dollars to the city every year. Attracting these athletes and their travel dollars is extremely competitive. We use a variety of marketing strategies and messages to help lure these visitors to our city. In fact, what we enjoy as residents is also of great appeal to potential visitors: a safe and friendly community, free parking, easy access, great restaurants and shopping, among other attractions. Just a few weeks ago, the Arnold Sports Festival was held in Columbus and generated $42.2-million for the local economy, attracting 18,000 athletes and 180,000 visitors from more than 70 countries. This is a great example of how the city of Dublin benefits from events that are outside our city limits. Helping to ensure that the majority of hotel rooms were filled in Dublin for the Arnold, the CVB secured Dublin as the official host site for the inaugural hockey tournament. Numerous Dublin hotels hosted hockey teams from across the country for the first-time event. The 17 state high school championships held in central Ohio and run by the Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) represents another opportunity to at-

Astronomical government spending over the past years has pushed our national debt to more than $14-trillion and counting. My daughter, Sarah, is over a year old and when she was born, her share of the national debt was $35,000. Today, it is around $45,000. This is alarming, and Congress must start making the tough decisions on spending so we can provide our children with a better future. Many federal programs have received funding increases over the last several years that outpaced both inflation and the growth of the American family budget. In fact, over the past two years, regular non-defense, discretionary funding has increased by 24 percent, while the stimulus bill alone cost around $821billion. This spending spree is unacceptable and unsustainable. Across Ohio and the nation, families prioritize their own budgets to make ends meet and they should expect no less of Congress. We did not land in this spending crisis overnight and we will not turn around it around overnight; however, vote by vote, Congress can reduce the out-ofcontrol spending and debt. The U.S. House of Representatives has already moved forward in reducing government spending in a number of ways. It was important that the first step in putting the nation’s fiscal house

Cason retires as longtime ThisWeek executive editor Continued from page A1 sports, and to Ben’s high personal standards for quality, objective and, above all, accurate reporting,” he said. “No one checks more facts than Ben. Ben’s legacy will be that his brand of journalism will live on through our staff because Ben showed them the way as he coached, mentored and nurtured them. Ben leaves us in good hands.” Two of Cason’s first hires after he arrived at ThisWeek were Lee Cochran, now assistant managing editor and sports editor, and Sandy Wallace, news editor. “I came to ThisWeek from a small daily, and it took some time for me to get used to the different pace and schedule of weekly papers,” Wallace said. “But Ben’s vision for the papers was very clear. It was all about better reporting, better editing, better writing. For Ben, content is key, regardless of whether it’s in print or online. “It will be very strange to walk

in the newsroom on March 21 and know Ben won’t be there,” she said. “We’re losing a wealth of experience and institutional knowledge — but I think I can safely say that Ben’s influence will continue to be felt for a long time.” “Ben came to ThisWeek three months before me,” Cochran said. “Soon after I started, he explained his plan for improving the papers, and it’s a vision he has followed ever since and one that will continue. The success we’ve had at ThisWeek is a credit to Ben and his vision. He knew what it took to be a successful newspaper and led us there. “He is a leader, a mentor and, most importantly, a friend. He will be missed by our readers and our newsroom.” After graduating from the University of Florida, Cason took a job at The St. Petersburg Times, where he met his wife, Carol. Cason was news editor at The Washington Post during the Watergate scandal that eventually toppled President Richard Nixon.

He said the Watergate episode was one of the most interesting times in his career. As news editor of The Post during that era, he put together many of the paper’s historic front pages. Cason said working for newspapers that were family-owned has been important to him. “I feel fortunate to have worked for family-run operations almost my entire career — the Wolfe family in Columbus, the Graham family at The Washington Post and Nelson Poynter at The St. Petersburg Times,” Cason said. “Journalism is almost always better when it’s run by families who live in the communities than by faceless large newspaper chains.” Cason said he remains a proponent of community journalism. “I think community journalism is the future of journalism,” he said. The Casons are the parents of two sons:Alexander lives in Charlotte, N.C.; David, his wife, Julie, and their two sons live in Worthington.

Census numbers show Dublin as top suburb Continued from page A1 mation on new population projections and also we know based on building permits,” she said. But Dublin has witnessed a slow-down in growth in the past few years. Grigsby said 2008 and 2009 each issued around 80 new residential permits, which was a big change from previous years. “It was down significantly from some peek years which were 450 in previous years,” she said. “It’s a significant slow-down, but some was anticipated as the city continues to grow out there is less land.” In fact, Grigsby said, 86 percent of residential land in the city has been developed. “There’s not a lot of residential land left in the city for development,” she said. Although Dublin has experienced growth of about 10,000 people over the last 10 years, Grigsby said staff hasn’t grown much.

A closer look According to U.S. Census numbers, Dublin had a population of 31,392 in 2000. Estimations placed the population in 2005 at 35,108 and at 38,536 in 2008. Official numbers from the 2010 census say Dublin currently has 41,571 residents.

“Actually when you go back and look at full-time staffing, 2002 compared to 2011, the number of funded full-time positions is one less than in 2002,” she said. The funded full-time positions aren’t always filled, but Grigsby said the city has kept up with demand by using contract services and moving employees around where they’re needed. “With the slow-down in development activity, we have been

able to utilize employees in the building department to go out and provide assistance with bike path and building inspections,” she said. “We utilize employees in other ways than they would have been in 2002.” Being able to shift positions around instead of funding new ones has enabled Dublin to keep up with growth and provide city services ranked high by residents on annual surveys, Grigsby said. “One of the things we take very seriously is the information we get back from surveys,” she said. “We try to focus on areas of surveys we see as areas for improvement. Every year we’re going through the budgeting process to look at the current year’s priorities and needs and try to best allocate resources and in some cases reallocate resources. We reallocate a position instead of allocating a new position.” jnoblit@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekNews.com

Tournament to benefit family, student memories By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

More than 50 teams have already signed up for a shot at a Dublin City Schools Dodgeball Champions trophy. Teams of six to 10 players have until March 25 to sign up for the annual tournament that will have balls flying on April 1 at Dublin Scioto High School. Schools currently hosting championship trophies are Scottish Corners Elementary, Grizzell Middle School, Coffman High School — for both the high school boys and girls team — and Scioto High School, where a staff team won the adult trophy. Doug Baker, district coordinator of public information, said the trophies travel to sit at the champ’s school each year. Even though the tournament gets competitive, at heart it’s a fundraiser. Last year’s tournament took in nearly $14,000 for the Lyndsey Rice and Kyle Colello Memorial Scholarship funds, which were created after Scioto students Rice and Colello died in a car crash.

This year the memorial scholarship funds will benefit from the dodgeball tournament, as will Jerome High School student Mark Burkholder. Burkholder, a sophomore, suffered a severe head injury last fall and is making his recovery at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. Students in the superintendent’s middle and high school student advisory committee decided to help Burkholder and his family with medical bills with the dodgeball tournament proceeds. “My student committees did a tremendous job identifying this year’s worthy causes,” Superintendent David Axner said in a news release. “It is completely appropriate we reach out and help Mark and his family while continuing to support the Rices and Colellos. We hope the entire community will turn out to support these efforts and for a night of friendly competition.” Last year’s tournament had about 60 teams competing and this year’s event was on its way. Baker said the event moves quickly, though. “Dr. Axner’s student committee runs the tournament and

they’re responsible for keeping it moving,” he said. “Last year we had 60 dodgeball teams. It probably went three or three-anda-half hours … The games are timed and the clock is running.” The event raises money with a $25 entrance fee for each team, although some donate more. “Most of the adult teams raise more money than that and we challenge others to,” Baker said. Spectators will also be charged $5 for admission to the April 1 tournament. The tournament will be played as a single-elimination competition with five divisions: elementary, middle school, high school girls, high school boys and adults. One student team will be accepted to the contest per elementary school, two student teams per middle school, and four girls and boys teams from each high school. Boys and girls can play on the same team at the elementary and middle school levels. To enter a dodgeball team, email info@dublinschools.net by March 25. jnoblit@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekNews.com

Siblings travel to Dublin for championships By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Two of the Richens/Timm Irish dancers in Dublin’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade last weekend will be taking their fancy footwork to Ireland. Siblings Amber and Robert Chapell qualified for the 2011 Irish World Dance Championships and will travel to Dublin next month to face other dancers from around the world. This will be Robert’s second trip to the world championships — he qualified last year — but for Jerome High School senior Amber, it will be a first. “It was really exciting,” Amber said of the November competition when she qualified for the world championships. “I cried. It’s been a really big goal for me since I started dancing.” Amber has been dancing for about 14 years. Robert, a Grizzell Middle School seventh-grader, has about eight years of Irish dancing under his belt. Robert finished 30th at last year’s world championships.

A closer look Siblings Amber and Robert Chapell qualified for the 2011 Irish World Dance Championships and will travel to Dublin next month to face other dancers from around the world.

“Last year I was nervous because it was my first time,” he said. “I’ll still be kind of nervous.” March, especially around St. Patrick’s Day, is full of performances for the siblings. The duo, along with other Richens/Timm dancers performed in Dublin’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade, at Brazenhead, the Rusty Bucket and several other places. Between performances and practice, they should be prepared for next month’s event. Both siblings attend the Richens/Timm Academy three times a week, but practice every day. “I’m here three days a week and at home I practice one hour a

day,” Amber said. “If I didn’t do this my life would be so different. I couldn’t imagine it without dance.” Next month’s competition won’t be the first time Amber has been to Ireland. “I’ve been to Ireland. I competed in the All-Ireland (competition),” she said. She also traveled to Scotland last year when Robert and her sister Alanna went to world championships. “We went to a couple of cool restaurants,” Amber said. “And a huge mall,” Robert added. For Robert, it’ll be the first trip to Ireland. “My sisters have been for the All-Ireland (competition), but I haven’t,” he said. “So I want to see what it’s like.” The world championships run from April 14 to 23. “I love seeing the competitions over there because it’s so different,” Amber said. “They’re so much better.” jnoblit@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekNews.com

“(Registration) varies so much by class, but it’s always better to register early,” said Janet Cooper, marketing and public relations manager. “Some may be waitlisted.” The newest ARTcamp offering — “RU Ready to Rock?” — came about after staff tossed around some ideas. “In this case, Kim Good, who has been on our faculty for summer camps, is helping us put together a schedule. Her daughter takes private instrument lessons at a location where the teachers perform in a rock band,” Cooper said. “They all started talking and the idea of what fun it would be to have something like this came up with our staff.” The camp for middle and high school students aims at guitar and bass players, drummers and vocalists. At the camp, the musicians will get individualized and small group lessons from rock musician teachers. Students will learn how to form a band, how to snag a gig and other rock lessons.

A closer look Information on all ARTcamps can be found online at dublinarts.org. A flier can be picked up at the Dublin Arts Council at 7125 Riverside Drive, or requested via mail by calling (614) 889-7444. Registration can be completed in-person, over the phone or via fax. Camps range in cost from $140 to $190.

Cooper said a local music teacher who is in a band has recruited other teachers from his business to man the program. “We have four people for each instrument specialty,” she said. The new camp for rockers will run from July 18 to 22 and will conclude with an outdoor performance on the Dublin Arts Council grounds. Other camps up for grabs at the Dublin Arts Council this summer focus on clay, photography, drawing, painting and acting. According to Cooper, “Exploring Clay” and “Ceramics: WheelThrown Pottery” are always a draw.

“The clay camps are extremely popular,” she said. “One is building up for younger students and the wheel-thrown pottery is extremely popular. It’s a chance to get on the wheel and really make something special.” Information on all ARTcamps can be found online at dublinarts.org. A flier can be picked up at the Dublin Arts Council at 7125 Riverside Drive, or requested via mail by calling (614) 889-7444. Registration can be completed in-person, over the phone or via fax.

New Century CSA

Alex Foster, a Marburn Academy junior, is the first one to recognize that Marburn Academy changed his life. “The TASK and LEAD classes have given me confidence to ask questions in my courses, and taught me how to advocate for myself,” states Foster. “Now I am able to participate at a high level in any class discussion, or add to the planning of any event.” Foster also acknowledges his research, writing, and notetaking skills have improved, which he credits to the Marburn Academy High School teachers. “I really value the close relationship Marburn students have with the High School teachers. Our teachers are more than willing to help each student, even to the point of staying after school.” Foster’s academic goal for this year is to be on the Honor Roll. After graduating with the class of 2012, he plans to go to college. Foster is an active member of the junior class, participating in class trips and playing soccer and dodge ball. As a school Ambassador, Foster has given school tours and mentored some Marburn 8th grade students. Foster also contributes to his local community by volunteering in his neighborhood.

Wrestling

Local coaches optimistic about future By SCOTT GERFEN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

When asked if he considered this season to be a breakout year for the program, Dublin Jerome High School wrestling coach Adam Huddle offered a pointed reply. “It’s only a breakthrough year if you continue to get results next season,” he said. “That’s our next goal and the beginning of our next season starts now in the weight room and getting to as many open mat events as we can.”

With seven Division I district qualifiers, the Celtics produced the most in program history. Coffman was among the area’s top teams with nine district qualifiers. The Shamrocks scored 74.5 points at the district tournament Feb. 25-26 at Hilliard Darby to finish sixth. And with a young team, Scioto had five district qualifiers. In all, five Dublin wrestlers reached the state tournament March 3-5 at Ohio State in Coffman senior Matt Muncrief (171 pounds, 31-11 record) and juniors Chris Mullucey (103, 38-10) and Ryan

Murdock (112, 44-5), Scioto junior Wesley King (215, 37-13) and Jerome senior Casey Nicholson (130, 35-8). Murdock — a sectional and district champion — placed sixth at state. He was fifth last season at 103. “I was really shooting for a championship unlike last year when I wasn’t expecting to place very well,” Murdock said. “It’s all about motivation, and I’m going to have to work that much harder.” Six of Coffman’s nine district qualifiers are juniors, including T.J. Armengau (160, 16-12), Jake Cline (135, 24-

13), Tyler McCourt (145, 28-9) and Joe Schultz (125, 26-11). Also qualifying for district were seniors Anthony Goliver (152, 24-11) and Ryan Steiner (189, 24-10). Muncrief, Murdock, Schultz and Steiner were first-team all-OCC-Central Division. Goliver, McCourt, Mullucey, junior Seth Yeack (heavyweight, 10-15) and sophomore Markell Wooden (140, 247) were third-team all-league. Sophomore Anthony Alexander (125, 13-8) was fourth-team all-league. Coffman was third (5-2) in the OCC-

Central, behind Hilliard Davidson (7-0) and Darby (6-1) and ahead of Worthington Kilbourne (4-3), Upper Arlington (3-4), Central Crossing (2-5), Westland (1-6) and Thomas Worthington (0-7). “There are a lot of good wrestlers in that junior class,” Shamrocks coach Bob Stoll said. “We’ve got two state qualifiers coming back and there are four or five of those juniors who are right there. We’ll have to fill some spots in the upper and lower weight classes, but our lineup See WRESTLING, page C2

Commentary

‘Old Barn’ remains Young at heart We are in the final days of one of my favorite times of the year — the district and regional boys basketball tournaments in the Fairgrounds Coliseum. Over the 16 years that I have written for ThisWeek Community Newspapers and the 43 years that I have been part of the media covering these exciting games, I have talked about these special days that LARRY those of us who love LARSON these events get to spend together for three or four weeks. It is a homecoming for a group of individuals who work very hard to make these games enjoyable for the teams, coaches and fans. Of these individuals, none has worked harder for the past two decades than tournament director Ralph Young, who is retiring after the games this weekend. He has dedicated his life to the betterment of the world of education and has been a wonderful, soft-spoken leader for all of us who work this tournament. “I can honestly state that I have enjoyed coming to this tournament every day,” said Young, who was business manager for seven years before beginning his 12-year stint as tournament director. “When I am asked about what I will remember most about this experience, it is real simple. It is the people that I have enjoyed most and I thank God that I can remember most of them. “It is the coaches, the officials, the kids, the workers and the fans that have made this so memorable. I have really loved every phase of the job I have been assigned to do and one of the main things I have learned along the way is that every person that works with you is unique and if you just stand back and let them do their job, what a job they will do. We haven’t really changed much over the years, but I feel that if the wheel isn’t broke, you don’t need to fix it.” Reflecting on his tenure at the Fairgrounds, Young said, “This has been such a great staff to work with and I learned so much from Bill Alspach. He taught me the importance of being a good listener. He taught me to let people talk and express their views and he told me about how much you can learn from that. It was so great to work with Bill and I miss his friendship, but my wife, Nancy, and I still have Bill’s wife, Polly, to share stories with and that is a treasure to us. “Polly is just as much a fixture at the (Fairgrounds) that Bill was and we love having her with us at the games. I also am so blessed to have had Nancy right by my side through all these years. She has been such a help to me. She has shared her honest opinion on things involving the tournament and has been so great in helping me remember to get all the little things done.” Much like the things I have

Hockey

Coffman fell short of main goals By AARON BLANKENSHIP ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Dublin Coffman High School hockey team enjoyed a successful season as it finished with 23-9-2-1 record. But coach Perry Pooley said his squad failed to accomplish most of its main goals, including winning the Capital Hockey Conference regular-season title, the Blue Jacket Cup and the district championship. “We had a good season overall, but the frustrating thing is we were real close to having a spectacular year,” Pooley said. “We came real close to winning some key

games to win the championships we were after, but maybe it was just a case of being a day late and a dollar short.” The Shamrocks finished fourth in the CHC standings at 10-2-1 and 21 points, behind co-champions Dublin Jerome (121, 24) and Olentangy Liberty (12-1, 24) and third-place Cincinnati Moeller (112, 22). Rounding out the CHC standings were St. Charles (7-4-2, 16), Upper Arlington (7-4-1-1, 16), Olentangy Orange (6-4-3, 15), Olentangy (7-6, 14), Thomas Worthington (5-7-1, 11), Gahanna (4-9, 8), DeSales (3-9-0-1, 7), Worthington Kil-

bourne (2-11, 4), Dublin Scioto (1-12, 2) and Watterson (0-13, 0). Coffman opened the Blue Jackets Cup with a 10-3 win over St. Charles on Feb. 10 and beat Jerome 2-1 in a semifinal Feb. 11 before losing to Liberty 3-2 in the final Feb. 13. The Shamrocks also beat Jerome 5-0 on Dec. 12 and 3-1 on Dec. 19 but lost to the Celtics 4-2 on Nov. 28. Coffman opened the district tournament with a 7-1 win over Worthington Kilbourne in the second round Feb. 20 and beat St. Charles 3-1 in the third round Feb. 26 before losing to Liberty 3-0 in a district semifinal Feb. 27.

Three of Coffman’s top players, sophomore defenseman Gunner Gruehl and junior forwards Nick Kreber and Kevin Putnam, were suspended for the Shamrocks’ final two games for violating a school policy. Putnam was the team’s leading scorer with 43 goals and 48 assists. Kreber was the Shamrocks’ top-scoring second-line forward with 13 goals and eight assists, and Gruehl was one of the team’s highest-scoring defensemen with six goals and seven assists.

Boys Basketball

Sharing OCC title is highlight for ’Rocks By THAD PLUMLEY ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Dublin Coffman High School boys basketball team has made a habit of being its sharpest when it faces an opponent in the Division I district tournament that it played during the regular season. Never was that more evident than a year ago when the Shamrocks avenged a pair of OCCCentral Division losses to Upper Arlington by knocking off the Golden Bears 50-48 in a district semifinal on the way to a district championship. This season, however, Coffman met its match in Walnut Ridge. The seventh-seeded Shamrocks’ postseason run ended with a 60-53 loss to the sixth-seeded Scots in a district semifinal March 6 in the Fairgrounds Coliseum. Coffman had opened the tournament with a 73-53 win over Logan on Feb. 22 and defeated Whetstone 65By Andrea Kjerrumgaard/ThisWeek 51 in the second round Feb. 25 before losing to Walnut Ridge.

matchup with Walnut Ridge on a 10-game winning streak, one off the program record. Its previous setback was a 51-48 overtime loss to the Scots on Jan. 22. “I guess everything has to come to an end eventually,” coach Jamey Collins said. “We did not expect (the loss to Walnut Ridge) and it was tough to take, but you have to give them credit. They played really well.” The setback also snapped an eight-game winning streak in district-semifinal matchups and ended Coffman’s quest to reach a district final for the ninth time in 12 years. This wasn’t lost on Walnut Ridge coach Jason Bates. “They are a great team,” Bates said. “(Collins) made me reach down and do a lot of things as a coach. They were a team with a

lot of seniors and those always scare me. They were a great team that had a great season.” Although Coffman did not reach a district final, it did earn a share of the OCC-Central championship. The Shamrocks went 13-1 in league play, splitting its two games against UA, to tie the Golden Bears for first. Thomas Worthington finished third at 9-5, followed by Hilliard Davidson (7-7), Hilliard Darby (5-9), Worthington Kilbourne (5-9), Central Crossing (2-12) and Westland (2-12). The Shamrocks lost the first meeting with UA 53-52 on Jan. 14 at home, but avenged the setback with a 55-49 overtime win Feb. 18 at UA. “When we look back on things, being able to win the league is going to be a good memory,” Collins said. “The way the league culminated with that game was a lot of fun.” Coffman’s seven-member senior class played a significant role in its success this season. Three were full-time starters, another See BASKETBALL, page C3

Caserta blossomed as a senior, finishing 48-11. During the regular season, he placed second in the Olentangy Invitational on Dec. 4, the James V. Horning Memorial on Jan. 22 and the Delaware Invitational on Feb. 5 and finished third in the North Canton Hoover Invitational on Dec. 17-18. Caserta then capped his career with a strong postseason, winning the Division II sectional on Feb. 19 at Hilliard Bradley, finishing second at district Feb. 25-26 at Columbus East and placing fifth at state March 3-5 at Ohio State. “Al was a hammer for us all year,” coach Matt Hammons said. “He moved up to wrestle at 135 to help the team out in duals, and he had a lot of success at both 130 and 135. Al’s a wicked scrambler. When you get in a dogfight with him, most of the time you’re going to end up on the bottom.”

ANGELO DISABATO

Although Chase Delande of the Hilliard Davidson High School wrestling team won the Division I state title at 145 pounds, he’s still going to be treated like the younger brother of Bo and Spencer. Both Bo Delande, a 2007 Davidson graduate, and Spencer Delande, a 2009 graduate, were state qualifiers as seniors, but neither made the kind of run the youngest Delande did at the state tournament March 3-5 at Ohio State. Chase went 4-0, defeating Massillon Perry’s Tanner Lemon 9-4 in the championship match. Although neither of his older brothers won a state title, they had an influence on Chase getting one. “Being the youngest brother, they would beat up on me sometimes,” said Chase, who has been named captain of the ThisWeek Super 12 wrestling team. “I think that’s what helped me a lot. It made me mentally stronger. I could take a beating.” Spencer often came to the practice room this season to help train his younger brother. With Spencer having a nearly 50-pound weight advantage, Chase had a difficult time trying to control his brother. And for Chase, control was what it was all about. “He’s great at turning people over,” coach Dominic DiSabato said. “He’s a strong kid even though he may not look like it. He’s tough. He’s really physical and he has that football player mentality where he’s going to make you feel pain.” The only central Ohio wrestler to capture a state title this season, Chase Delande earned his 100th career victory in his match against Lemon. The junior finished the season 46-2. His only losses were to Mentor Lake Catholic’s Matt Fee at the Brecksville-Broadview Heights Holiday Tournament, which concluded Dec. 30. After that tournament, Delande was unbeatable. He swept through the OCC-Central Division dual matches, defeated Grove City’s Robert Coles 14-0 to win the Marysville sectional title Feb. 19 and defeated Olentangy Liberty’s Ethan Snyder 10-4 to win a district title Feb. 26. The state title gave Delande a state championship in two sports. He was a cornerback for the Davidson football team when it won the Division I state title in 2009. “In wrestling, it’s more of a thrill,” Delande said of winning a state championship. “In football, it’s a long game, two hours. In wrestling, it’s six minutes and all eyes are on you.”

The son of the coach of one of the area’s premier wrestling programs, DiSabato beats opponents not only with skill, but with a deep knowledge of the sport. DiSabato capped a stellar season with a fifth-place finish at the Division I state tournament. He finished the season 50-5 and earned his second trip to the awards podium at state. He placed eighth at 103 as a sophomore. “One thing that he’s really benefited from is he’s a smart wrestler, and being around wrestling as long as he has, he understands situations,” said coach Dominic DiSabato, Angelo’s father. “There are not too many mistakes that he makes on the mat because he didn’t know the situation.” DiSabato was named the OCC-Central Division Wrestler of the Year in addition to winning sectional and district championships.

Elflein could be among the early favorites to win the Division I state heavyweight title next season following the graduation of Centerville’s Kyle Rose, who defeated him 7-5 in a district final en route to winning the state title this year. Elflein went 1-2 at state, but he was eliminated by a pair of eventual placers in matches decided by a combined three points. “That was Pat’s first time at state, so it was a good learning experience,” coach Brad Harris said. “Now he knows what he needs to do going forward,” Elflein, who packed on 40 pounds after his sophomore year, finished the season with a 35-9 record and set the single-season program record with 28 pins. He already has football scholarship offers from Indiana and Northwestern.

Though only a sophomore, Forrider is a two-time placer at the Division I state tournament. As a freshman, he finished eighth at 119. This season, he placed sixth at 130 and finished with a 41-10 record. For his career, he is 85-18. This season, Forrider won the title at the Marysville sectional before winning the district title. He entered the state tournament ranked eighth in his weight class in Brian Brakeman’s High School Wrestling Forecast. “Noah is a huge part of our program as a competitor and a leader,” coach Shawn Andrews said. “His experience at the state level as a two-time placer is a great example to the kids on our team as to what it takes to be successful.”

Drumm upstaged Heath teammates Dom Barlow, a four-time state placer, and Mason Robinson at the Division III state tournament as the heralded trio concluded their careers with a combined 496 victories. Drumm was the Bulldogs’ top finisher, placing fifth to finish the season with a 34-3 record. He had eight postseason pins and won a district title Feb. 25-26 at Coshocton, where his father, Robin, died of a heart attack following one of his matches three years ago. “Of our three (state qualifiers), Travis was the most focused,” coach Roger Morgan said. “If he didn’t think he had a legitimate shot at winning (state), he wouldn’t be here.” Drumm, a two-time state qualifier who was a state alternate as a sophomore, finished with 160 career victories. He has signed to play football at Tiffin University.

In Bradley’s first two seasons, Higgins became one of the wrestlers who would help lay a solid foundation for a successful program. He ended his prep career by becoming the program’s first state placer. Higgins placed third at the Division II state tournament, beating Medina Highland’s Tyler Bloniak 11-7 in the third-place match. Higgins had a 44-4 record this season using what coach John Riggs said was an unusual technique. “He has a very unique style where he uses a lot of scrambling,” Riggs said. “He’s great with his legs and with tilts. He’s able to put his opponents in situations that maybe they haven’t seen before.” Higgins won sectional and district championships en route to qualifying for state and was named the OCC-Capital Division Wrestler of the Year.

Not only did Hutchins earn a 50-8 record but he did so in dominating fashion, pinning 41 opponents, which ranks him ninth on Ohio’s all-time season leader list. For his career, Hutchins compiled a 15648 record with 113 pins. His career pin total ranks 12th on Ohio’s all-time list and his win total was one shy of Seth Morton’s program record for career wins. “By earning six points with every pin, Brady has accounted for hundreds of team points for us,” coach Trent Brooks said. “Brady was an all-around dream to coach and he set the tempo for our team both on and off the mat.” Hutchins finished first in the Cambridge Invitational on Dec. 4, the Watkins Memorial Invitational on Feb. 5 and the Division II sectional Feb. 19 at Licking Heights. After placing second at district, he went 1-2 at state for a third consecutive season.

VINCE PICKETT

Murdock added to his résumé this season as both a Division I district and sectional champion. After finishing fifth at the state tournament at 103 as a sophomore, he placed sixth at 112 and finished this season with a 44-5 record. He entered state ranked second in Brian Brakeman’s High School Wrestling Forecast. “His goal was to win it this year, but it made it tough when he lost his first match (at state),” coach Bob Stoll said. “He’s got another year to try to do it. “He’s going to be a heck of a boost for our other guys next year as a leader.” Murdock, a three-time district qualifier, was first-team all-OCCCentral Division as the Shamrocks finished third (5-2) behind champion Hilliard Davidson (7-0).

Jr.

Fiorucci added to his already impressive résumé this season, finishing with a 45-7 record and winning five tournaments. He won the Olentangy Invitational on Dec. 4, the North Canton Hoover Invitational on Dec. 17-18 and the James V. Horning Memorial on Jan. 22. He also successfully defended his titles at the Division II sectional and district tournaments. Having placed eighth at 103 at state in Division I as a freshman and second at 103 in Division II as a sophomore, Fiorucci went 3-2 and placed fifth at 119 at state this year. “Trevor was dominant all season, and his only losses were to studs in tough tournaments,” coach Matt Hammons said. “He’s a pinner. Whether he’s on top or bottom, there’s always a good chance that Trevor is going to put someone on their back and stick them.”

BOBBY SMITH 160

Ready

If high school wrestling fans didn’t know who Pickett was before the Division I district tournament, they quickly found out after he demolished the competition on the way to a district title, winning each of his four matches by tech-fall, major decision or pin. He beat Olentangy Liberty’s Nick Kaczkowski 13-0 in the final. “I always say you have to be good on your feet. You have to be good in escape and you have to be able to hold someone down. Vince is good at all three of those,” coach Jamie Ramirez said. “That makes him difficult to wrestle. He’s tall and lanky. He’s hard to shoot on and he’s got a great shot himself. Plus, he has a bit of a mean bone.” Pickett, who finished the season 50-3, placed fourth at the state tournament.

Not often does a freshman make as much of an impact as Smith did this winter. He helped the Silver Knights win the CCL title and then followed with a Division III sectional title and a third-place finish at district. Smith went 3-2 at the state tournament. He won his first two matches before losing his next two. He bounced back to pin Marion Pleasant’s Zon Fields in 4 minutes, 40 seconds to finish fifth. Smith, who finished with a 43-4 record, had lost to Fields in a semifinal at the district tournament Feb. 26 at Coshocton. “He’s a very determined wrestler,” coach Chance Van Gundy said. “I’m just looking forward to the next three years. I’ve had several freshmen come in that were good, but I don’t think any has been as special as Bobby.”

Girls Soccer

Irish’s Scoliere to join sister at Ohio State By SCOTT HENNEN ThisWeek Community Newspapers Life will be changing for Megan Scoliere — on and off the soccer field. The senior midfielder for the Dublin Scioto High School girls soccer team not only will be playing the sport at Ohio State, she will be moving to the back as a defender. Scoliere signed a letter of intent Feb. 4 to play for the Buckeyes.

“They liked my feet because they said I could play forward, midfielder or as a defender,” said Scoliere, who also considered Kentucky and Duquesne, a school in Pittsburgh. “They look for players who can play a variety of positions. But being a defender is nothing new because I have played defense my entire life in club soccer with Ohio Premier.” Scoliere led the Irish in scoring last season with 14 goals and 13 assists, and she also has the program record for ca-

reer scoring with 93 points on 32 goals and 29 assists. She helped the Irish finish a program-best 17-2-1 last fall and reach their first Division I district final, where they lost 1-0 to eventual state finalist Pickerington North. She was first-team all-state and the Player of the Year in the OCC-Cardinal Division, which Scioto won at 6-0-1 for its first OCC title since 2004. “Megan is a great all-around player and is a leader on the field,” Scioto coach

She used to specialize in the 3,200 in track, but she’s developing more speed and she was a successful 800 and mile runner last year.” Ferguson believes Collins, who carries a 4.0 grade-point average, has the potential to be an even more successful runner at Dayton than she has been at Coffman. “We’re not a program that runs a lot of miles, so she has the potential to get stronger and better in college,” Ferguson said. “She’s a great kid and a great student who still has a lot of room for growth, and I think that’s why a lot of college coaches were interested in her.”

Megan said her sister offered plenty of insight to get her ready for college soccer. “My sister is always telling me I need to get a lot stronger before I get there. She said I’m too weak,” said Megan, the daughter of Michael and Nancy Scoliere. “She said if I want to play with the big dogs, I’m going to have to get bigger.” shennen@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com

Kayser wins sportsmanship award From staff reports Dublin Coffman gymnastics coach Julie Kayser has won a Sportsmanship, Ethics and Integrity Award from the Ohio High School Athletic Association. Kayser was honored March 4 at the state tournament at Hilliard Bradley. “I’m totally thrilled with it. It’s an honor just to be nomi-

nated by your fellow coaches,” Kayser said. “It’s an honor that is coming from the coaches and it’s a one-time deal. It’s the highest honor you can get as a coach.” Kayser has been named Coach of the Year by the state (1992, 1993 and 2007), the Central District (1987, 1998 and 2009) and the Ohio Capital Conference (2007 and 2009). She

has led 12 teams to the state tournament while winning six district and 11 OCC titles. Kayser coached at Upper Arlington from 1985-98, winning the state championship in 1995. During that time she had one individual state champion, Katie Bernon, in 1994. She retired from UA in 1998 but returned to coaching two years later at Coffman.

Guard Zack Riddle was only part of the program for one year after transferring from Watterson, but was the Shamrocks’ leader on the court. He led the team in scoring (16.5 points per game), assists (4.1) and 3-point shooting percentage (43.5). Riddle scored 20 points or more seven times, including a career-high 30 in a 63-40 win over Kilbourne on Feb. 11. He was named first-team all-league and third-team all-district.

The camaraderie was great this year.” The Shamrocks expect to return one full-time starter from this season in 6-foot-11 center Eric Weisenbach, who averaged 7.0 points, 4.9 rebounds and 3.5 blocks and was honorable mention all-league. He had a careerhigh 18 points against Whetstone.

Also expected to return are junior guard Brad Schulze and sophomore forwards Jason Hall and Kevin Marsh. Schulze had a career-high 12 points against Logan. Another player expected to return is junior Kyle Molock, a guard and Purdue University recruit who missed the entire season after suffering a severe knee injury last summer. A starter as a freshman and sophomore, he averaged 14.0 points and 3.0 assists and was named first-team all-league and honorable mention all-district last season. “I like the guys we have back and we have some good ones coming up from the (junior varsity) team that went 16-2,” Collins said. “What I like a lot is their basketball IQ. That makes things really exciting.” www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com

HOCKEY Continued from page C1 “Beating St. Charles and Jerome in the Blue Jackets Cup were highlights,” Pooley said. “Beating Jerome three times was a big deal for us, too, because we’ve got a good rivalry and they’re a very good team. I feel we could have won the Blue Jackets Cup based on how well we played, but we just couldn’t find a way to get the goals we needed to beat Liberty.” The Shamrocks lose 10 seniors, including goaltender Nathan Schuman (18-7-2-1, 2.12 goalsagainst average, 90.4 save percentage), forwards Sam O’Brien (34 goals, 51 assists) and A.J.

Nathan Schuman really answered the bell as a firstyear starter in goal. And we’re losing four defensemen who were really good, too.” Junior Kyler Burich is expected to become Coffman’s No. 1 goaltender next season, after going 5-2 with a 2.05 GAA and a 90.3 save percentage this season. Junior Eric Gute (1 goal, 9 assists, plus-30) is expected to be the Shamrocks’top returning defenseman, and Putnam, Kreber, and sophomores Ian Flinders (35 goals, 33 assists) and Chris DiBiase (10 goals, 4 assists) are expected to be the team’s top returning forwards.

“The difference between next year and the past seven years is we’re going to be rebuilding instead of reloading,” Pooley said. “We’re going to be really young and inexperienced for the first time in a long time.” •After finishing 13th in the CHC standings, Scioto went 12 to finish fourth in the Blue Jackets Cup consolation tournament, beating Kilbourne 6-2 on Feb. 11, losing to Thomas 4-0 on Feb. 12 and losing to Gahanna 9-0 in a consolation final Feb. 13. The Irish then lost to Gahanna 4-1 in their district tournament opener Feb. 18 to finish 7-24 overall. Junior forward Grant Noppenberger said the highlight of Scioto’s season was going 3-1 in the MLK Tournament in Monroe, Mich., to place third. The Irish opened the tournament with an 8-4 loss to Ottawa Hills on Jan. 14, but bounced back to beat Akron Hoban 7-0 and Cincinnati Elder 7-2 on Jan. 15 before defeating Hoban 5-4 on Jan. 16.

game winning streak. “The best part of our season was definitely the Michigan tournament where we went 3-1, because we played so well,” Noppenberger said. “We didn’t play that well in the Blue Jackets Cup, but we played a lot better against Gahanna in our tournament game.” The Irish lose four seniors, including forward Colin Best (3 goals, 7 assists) and defenseman Paul Tela, both of whom served as team captains. Scioto expects to return four of its top five forwards in juniors Sean Isernhagen (7 goals, 3 assists) and Tyler Smoot (4 goals, 4 assists), sophomore Zach Vallette (21 goals, 23 assists) and freshman Tate Bowen (10 goals, 9 assists). Junior goaltender Chris Beatty and Scioto’s top two defensemen, Noppenberger (22 goals, 5 assists) and sophomore Bryant Tela, also are expected back. “Our seniors were good role models, but I definitely think we’ll be a lot better next year with a lot of returning players coming back,” Noppenberger said. ablankenship@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com

Signing Day

Jerome student-athletes announce college picks By FRANK DiRENNA ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Three Dublin Jerome High School athletes plan to compete in college at the Division I level. Jack Beebe will play football at Dayton, Carli Pimm will play soccer at Akron and Carly Bauer plans to participate in the track and field and cross country programs at Cincinnati. •Beebe was a key contributor on the Celtics defense last fall. The 6-foot-3, 225-pound defensive end had 25 1/2 tackles and forced four fumbles. He was named second-team all-OCCCardinal Division. Beebe said he chose Dayton over Division III Case Western Reserve in Cleveland. Beebe’s sister, Erica, is a senior at Dayton. The Flyers compete in the Football Championship Subdivision, formerly Division I-AA. “Dayton has always been my favorite school,” Beebe said. “Before I was even considering playing football in college that’s where I wanted to go. My sister went there. It’s a place I just wanted to be at.” Beebe will join Cody Carr (Ohio), Tyler Friedrich (Dayton), Kevin Jackson (Air Force), Ricky Kovatch (West Virginia), Steve Mehrer (Kent State) and Sean Sward (Dayton) as Celtics who have gone on to play college football at the Division I level. “We knew Jack was going to have a shot coming off of his jun-

ior year,” Jerome coach Mark Hundley said. “The question with him was did he show up enough on film. Right down to the last minute, it was still questionable whether he was going to get in or not, but they ended up making room for him and he’ll fit in pretty well over there.” Last season, the Celtics finished 6-4 overall and 5-2 in the OCC-Cardinal, second behind Westerville South (6-1). “We had some big games at Jerome and some news coverage,” Beebe said. “That helped. Also, Jerome is emerging as more of a threat now than we have been in the past. There’s some teams that are watching out for us and that’s getting us some more recognition. We’re starting to get some good players.” •Pimm was a key member of the girls soccer team during her four years. She selected Akron because of its proximity to central Ohio. “I decided to stay in Ohio,” Pimm said. “I also considered Ohio University, Dayton and Marshall. I really liked the coaches and players at Akron when I visited. It just seemed like a good fit.” Former Jerome coach Annie Murphy Gage said Pimm’s work ethic and talent led to the Division I opportunity. “As a freshman, Carli came in and immediately caught my attention,” said Murphy Gage, who resigned following the 2009 season. “She had a tireless work rate

and a fitness level that many athletes will never achieve. Her speed and agility were only a few of her many assets. She was both dynamic and quick with the ball at her feet. Her one-versus-one skills were not her only weapon, however. Carli also had the knack for being a playmaker as well as a defender.” Pimm credits Murphy Gage and her club coach, Matt Ogden of Ohio Premier, for her development in the sport. Last season, Pimm had seven goals and four assists as Jerome finished 10-6-3 overall and 5-2 in the OCC-Cardinal, in a second-place tie with Olentangy Liberty behind first-place Dublin Scioto (6-0-1). The Celtics reached a Division I district tournament semifinal, losing to Liberty 2-1. Pimm was named first-team all-league and all-district. •Bauer is expected to be a preferred walk-on at Cincinnati, but hopes to earn a scholarship. Bauer competed on the cross country team all four years at Jerome and is preparing for her third track and field season. As a sophomore on the cross country team, Bauer had a personal-best time of 20 minutes, 18.61 seconds at the Les Eisenhart Invitational at Thomas Worthington. She expects to compete in the 400, 800 and 1,600 meters this spring. fdirenna@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com

Vino Vino in Grandview; so nice they named it twice When I first wrote about Vino Vino around five years ago, the little Grandview hub had a lot of buzz about it. Well, frankly, I hadn’t heard much Vino Vino talk lately. After a few recent visits, I think I know why: Its many patrons are trying to keep this terrific place (and its brashly flavored, artfully plated dishes sold at really great prices) all to themselves. Comfy, urbane, sophisticated, casual — these were the adjectives that popped into my brain as Brazilian music played (a much appreciated Vino Vino mainstay) and I perused the lengthy vino list. The wine-named place has a few flights with grinning descriptions, a ton of bottles that range from an unoaked Chilean chard (Cousino Macal, $22) to a big Barolo (Marcarini, $80) and lots of food-friendly juice in between. Salads are certainly solid here. The Charleston ($6) is one of those walnut and Maytag blue cheese numbers, but nicely done — with earthy julienned veggies and a lightly applied bright vinaigrette.

by G.A. Benton If you’re more of a Caesar person, pick the Parmesan Peppercorn ($6). It’s like a spicy and creamy version minus the anchovy but plus sweet corn kernels and a hunk of fresh avocado. Before moving on, I should mention that the last salad — along with a bunch of other goodies — are available in smaller portions for $3 (some are $4) during Vino Vino’s spectacular happy hour, which is one of the best in town. Other happy hour highlights include: a killer Fish Taco (get the lettuce wrap option) that’s bold, huge and colorful and easily rivals any in the city; a very nifty crab cake actually packed with crab, nicely butter-browned and offering a flattering hint of mustard; a super-juicy sirloin and portobello slider; and an excellent blackened tuna and veggie pizza.

Fried chicken took a fun and nutty Thai turn in the Pistachio Crusted Chicken ($13). Two large logs of juicy boneless breast meat were pistachioed and bread crumbed and presented in crusty jackets. They were accompanied by dense and garlicky smashed redskins, a nice veggie medley starring broccoli and a sweet Thailike chili sauce. The Roasted Salmon ($15) was a platefilling big fillet of grill-marked pink fish roused into specialness by a butter sauce with an intense lemon zestiness. Jasmine rice was on the side for sopping up the attention-demanding sauce. A dense but not super heavy NYCstyle cheesecake ($6) was good on its own, but even better with its accessories — nuts, fruit, syrup and cinnamon.

Northland welcomes Nigerian restaurant on Cleveland Ave. Esther Ajiboye thinks Columbus is ready for something many residents rarely, if ever, have tried: Nigerian cuisine. Ajiboye and her husband Olawale have opened Intercontinental Restaurant, a 30-seat eatery in the Northland area. Opening day two weeks ago, the restaurant served 200 cus-

tomers. Since then, a steady stream of diners has flowed through Intercontinental, supping on such dishes as plantains with spinach, goat meat with mixed okra stew and fish pepper soup. “We’ve been very busy,” Mrs. Ajiboye said.

The reason, she suspects, is the paucity of Nigerian restaurants in the region. In fact, she claims that Intercontinental, 5777 Cleveland Ave., is the only one in the state. Also in its favor are the healthful aspects of the cuisine — nothing is deep-fried — and the price. All meals start out at $7.99. Prices go up if customers

By Eric George/ThisWeek

Esther and Olawale Ajiboye have opened Intercontinental Restaurant featuring Nigerian cuisine at 5777 Cleveland Ave.

ask for extra portions. Both Ajiboyes are from the western part of Nigeria, where each owned a restaurant. “Cooking brought us together,” Mrs. Ajiboye said. “Food brought us together.” “This is the first time we are working together,” her husband said. “I enjoy it. She’s a good cook.” Columbus is no stranger to regional African cuisines, offering a wide variety of styles: Figs Café (a mix of Ghanaian and Western fare), Blue Nile (Ethiopian) and Solay Bistro (Somali), for example. Mr. Ajiboye said many of the restaurant’s West African dishes, such as jollof rice, are shared throughout most of the continent. One of the most popular dishes at Intercontinental is moi moi, made from a base of black-eyed peas that are soaked, peeled, cooked and pureed, and seasoned with a variety of ingredients. After it is boiled in foil and firms up into a loaf, the moi moi is cut into pieces to be eaten on their own or served with meat. Another big seller is egusi soup, made of melon seeds, and often served with a ball of pounded yam, where diners peel off pieces of the globe and dip it into the soup as they eat. Mrs. Ajiboye said the spice level of the dishes is mild and suited to most diners but there is a habanero

salsa served tableside for those who want a spicy condiment. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner hours daily. For more information, call 614-843-5665. Spain Restaurant is opening a second site in Lewis Center. The Spanish eatery, a Northland staple for 12 years, will take over the site most recently occupied by Beebs Deli, 76 Powell Road. The

3,500-square-foot building, which will seat around 100 people, is just west of U.S. Route 23. The menu and pricing structure will remain largely unchanged, said general manager Luis Aguilar. A specific opening date is not certain, but it should be ready within two months. He said the plan is to keep the current site at 888 E. Dublin-Granville Road and have a less formal menu.

KEEPING SCORE According to FICO, about 1.2 million people have seen their credit rating drop from the top 800-850 tier since April 2008. During that same period, about 2.2 million Americans have had their FICO scores drop below 600, which has long been considered to be the lower cutoff point of “prime” creditworthiness. If you are concerned about your credit rating score, request a free copy of your credit score annually, and report (and correct) errors. The second step toward credit score rehabilitation involves paying down your credit balances if at all possible. The less debt you owe reduces your “credit utilization,” which is the amount of your total debt as a percentage of your available credit lines. Paying down credit card debt is an important step for improving your credit score. Having professional financial guidance can help you build and conserve your money so you can achieve your goals. I specialize in helping pre-retirees and retirees implement wise, prudent investment strategies and avoid common investment traps. Most importantly, we will routinely review the portfolio and make adjustment if needed. Investment management is on a fee-only basis. Please call me at 614-734-8458 for independent, unbiased financial guidance. My office is located at 5650 Blazer Pkwy., Suite 100.
