City considering business incubator Plan before council requests $1.1M for development, plus $525K over two years By JENNIFER NESBITT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Westerville city staff members say the city does well in two out of three areas of economic development: job attraction and job retention. But, they said, the city stays out of the third component of job growth: job creation. A new plan designed by the staff would fill that gap with the start of a business incubator, a program designed

to jump-start new businesses and increase their chances for success. The plan was presented to Westerville City Council in a work session March 8. Carol Lauffer, a consultant with Business Cluster Development, said Westerville would need to offer $1.1-million for development and an additional $525,000 over two years to start its incubator. Lauffer said she believes after the initial two years, the incubator would be financially self-sustaining.

“Every incubator requires some sort of subsidy. I think of it as the seed for economic development. Some group has to step in and fund during initial years,” she said. Council will hear the first reading at its April 5 meeting for a $100,000 appropriation and an agreement with TechColumbus to move forward with the business incubator, said Jason Bechtold, Westerville economic development administrator. A third reading and a vote would come on May 3.

City manager Dave Collinsworth said the staff began discussing the creation of a business incubator last year in connection with the start-up of the community data center. Initially, the plan was to meld the two concepts together, but ultimately, Collinsworth said, staff members found they needed to be approached separately, and the city moved forward with the data center while exploring a separate plan for a business incubator. With money allocated by council, the

city staff began working with TechColumbus, which has started other business incubators in central Ohio, and with Lauffer. Assistant city manager Julie Colley said a business incubator would help Westerville take businesses’ plans from “a piece of paper to actual job creation.” “In models across the country, this business incubation works,” Colley said. “This is where we’re headed.

Westerville unions band together to oppose S.B. 5 By JENNIFER NESBITT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Union members in Westerville have banded together to oppose a controversial bill to limit collective bargaining. Representatives from the unions that represent the city’s firefighters, police and service workers, and Westerville City Schools’ teachers, maintenance workers, bus drivers, mechanics and classified staff met last week to discuss what they could do to make sure Senate Bill 5 won’t take effect.

The groups were scheduled to hold a rally March 15 at Westerville Central High School, followed by a march to Gov. John Kasich’s house, to show their opposition to the bill. “It seems like they’re trying to fix the budget crisis on the backs of the working people. You can’t blame the budget crisis on the working class,” said firefighter Tom Ullom, chair of governmental and legislative affairs for WPFF/IAFF L-3480, the union that represents the city’s firefighters.

Students bring World Water Day to Westerville By JENNIFER NESBITT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Many people take the clean water that runs from their taps for granted. Several Emerson Magnet School students are working to change that, while also raising money to provide people in developing countries with access to clean water. The project to raise money for an awareness project about the lack of clean drinking water worldwide began last year, after

first-grade teacher Mary Taylor and thirdgrade teacher Beth Dailin took a course on service learning. “We kind of learned that all these countries had a hard time getting clean water,” Dailin said. “We asked ourselves: What could we do to solve that problem?” In a Scholastic News article, Dailin learned about Proctor and Gamble’s Children’s Safe Drinking Water project, which provides PUR water packets to people in developing countries.

“It’s a portable water treatment plant in a pack,” Dailin said. Students researched the worldwide problem of the lack of clean, safe drinking water. They created brochures and informational displays to take to public events to raise money for the cause. “As soon as children hear about children who are dying, they just want to help,” Taylor said.

Geese have become persona non grata in Westerville’s parks. The gaggles of geese that flock to parks, mostly the community center, sports complex and Hoff Woods Park, litter trails and fields with droppings and bring in complaints from residents, Westerville Parks and Recreation Department director Randy Auler said. “It was really probably our No. 1 complaint from citizens last year,” Auler said.

In addition to being a nuisance to park patrons, the geese also create more work for parks and recreation staff members, who must clean up the mess left by the geese. Because it’s an ongoing problem, Auler said, the work seems to be neverending. “It’s very time consuming in terms of manpower,” he said. To combat the problem, the city has contracted with a Columbus company called Go Geese Go that will bring herding dogs into the problem parks to chase See GEESE ISSUE, page A6

Middle school

March 17, 2011 &

Attendance boundaries may change By JENNIFER NESBITT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Westerville’s middle schools are beyond capacity and the district is looking at altering the attendance boundaries for the 201112 school year to more evenly distribute and more efficiently transport students. Changes at the middle-school level also could bring changes to elementary attendance boundaries for the 2012-13 school year, administrators said. District facilities and operations services director Jeff LeRose and consultant Matthew Cropper of Cropper GIS presented five options for altering middle-school attendance boundaries to the board of education on March 14. “The goal was to think outside of the box and develop as many options as we could,” Cropper said. “All five are better than where we are today.” All four middle schools currently are over capacity by 44 students, or 1 percent. Walnut Springs Middle School is the most crowded, according to information from the district. It has 9 percent more students, or 75 students more, than the building was meant to hold. Genoa Middle School has 77 more

students than the building was meant to house, making it 8 percent over capacity. Heritage Middle School, on the other hand, could house 87 more students, or is 10 percent under capacity. Blendon Middle School is 3 percent under capacity, or could house 21 more students. The current attendance boundaries include 12 noncontiguous zones, which decrease transportation efficiency. The district’s current attendance boundaries have a poor level of transportation efficiency, LeRose said. The biggest consideration when looking at redrawing the boundaries, he said, was having students evenly distributed in relation to the four middle schools’ capacity. Other areas of consideration include having an equal percentage of minority students and students who receive free and reduced-price lunches; affecting the lowest number of students; and creating fewer noncontiguous transportation zones to increase transportation efficiency. To move forward, district administrators recommended honing in on two attendance boundary options to gather more data to bring to the board to make a final decision on those options.

One of those options would require 51 percent of the district’s middle-school students to change schools but would drastically increase transportation efficiency by only having one noncontiguous attendance zone. The other option would affect 12 percent of middle-school students but would not be as efficient, creating eight noncontiguous attendance zones. To put the changes into effect for next school year, LeRose said, the board would have to make a decision to change attendance boundaries by the end of April. School board members expressed concerns about changing students’school assignments just four months before the school year begins, especially if a decision could have an impact on more than half of the district’s middle-school students. “Here we stand on March 14, and we’re talking about adjustments to make next school year. I would expect we’d need a longer road for the process, a longer time to walk through the process with that big of change,” board member Kevin Hoffman said. “That’s talking about one out of two middle-school students going somewhere different next year than

District puts STEM on hold By JENNIFER NESBITT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Westerville City Schools administrators announced to the board of education March 14 that they will not expand the high school Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics course offerings for the next school year. Last month, they presented the board with three potential STEM courses: an environmental sciences program, a physical engineering and design program and a course extending the district’s existing biomedical program, Bodies. Scott Reeves, the district’s executive director of high school academic affairs and extracurricular programs, said administrators decided to go through a more rigorous planning process for the potential new course and will look to add a STEM program for the 2012-13 school year.

Over next few months, Reeves said, the administration will work with teachers, Otterbein University, the teachers who developed the existing STEM Bodies program, and with building and district leaders to define course criteria, identify a host site for programs and to finalize curriculum. The administration also would like to put the proposed program through the committee that reviews district curriculum changes, Reeves said. Board members applauded the decision to slow down the process for adding new STEM programs. “We all support the STEM program,” board member Jeff Gale said. “We’re also keenly aware of the economics, and we want to make sure if we establish new programs, we’re able to continue new programs.” Board member Denise Pope said if the board chooses to offer

a new program next year, members want to be sure they won’t be back the following year talking about how to scale back or eliminate that program. “It sounds like very wellthought-out implementation rather than rushing into it,” Pope said of the decision to wait to introduce a new STEM course. Parent Mark Jackson, whose daughter had gone through the Bodies program and whose son is in the program, said the district benefits by offering STEM because it keeps the brightest students in the high schools for their senior year. Without the program, many of the students, who already have exhausted Advanced Placement course offerings, must seek college credits at universities rather than through the high schools. “Keeping those kinds of kids in your schools is important,” Jackson said.



they’re going today. That is a substantive change.” Board member Denise Pope said the district must include parents in making a decision that could have such a great impact. “If we’re talking about doing something with 51 percent, I’m sure we will hear a lot from the parents in this district whose students are affected by that,” she said. Regardless of what the board decides, the district will have to look deeper into elementary-school enrollment to determine how the middle-school population will grow, Superintendent Dan Good said. If the middle schools are projected to continue to be over capacity, the district will have to decide how to accommodate those students, Good said. “It’s not an easy solution because, regardless of how we decide, we’re over capacity,” he said. “You almost have to do a little more so students aren’t moving on a year-to-year basis.” The earliest the board could make a decision to change attendance boundaries is at its next voting meeting, at 6 p.m. April 25 in the transportation building, 125 E. Walnut St. The board also will have a work session at 6 p.m. April 11 at Westerville South High School, 303 S. Otterbein Ave.

Continued from page A4 bus along the rail lines that came into town from the east. Rarig had had some success making engines for industrial use, boilers, and even the superstructure for iron bridges. In the years before the Spanish American War, the company decided that its future lay in what we would today call “defense contracts.” The Navy was expanding in size and influence. The Army was more involved in more places more frequently, as well. All of these people would need heavy-

duty artillery and the ordnance carriages to hold them. With outbreak of the Spanish American War, the company converted to wartime production in the confident assumption that the war would last for some time. The war lasted for 90 days. Not long thereafter, for a number of reasons, the company went out of business. It was at this fortuitous moment that Joseph Ralston and Anton Becker came to town looking for a factory location. They found the Rarig site.

some of the most powerful corporations in America. But for all of that, most freight was still moved in wooden cars: box cars, tank cars or open top “gondola” cars. Many of these cars had to be unloaded by hand. Joseph Ralston, working with a young engineer named Anton Becker, developed plans for a new type of car. The entire car would be made of durable steel and would have a series of 16 trap doors along its bottom to permit coal or anything else to be quickly unloaded. Building a sample car, the two young inventors demonstrated their product to some railroads that hauled a lot of coal. Several of them in Columbus said they would buy the new car if the inventors could find a place to manufacture it. They did just that. The Rarig Engineering Co. had been in business for some time at a distance from downtown Colum-

the patrons and the Memorial Tournament He spent a year in a lumber camp in Michigan and followed that with another year as a newspaper reporter. He then turned to the sale of real estate for a time and then began to read law at night while he worked during the day. He would never practice law, but he would always claim its study helped him in his later activities. Along the way, he married Anna Mar of Caledonia, Ontario. They had four children, three of whom lived to adulthood. By the turn of the century, Joseph Ralston was working in Chicago for a large manufacturer of railroad cars. To anyone who lives in central Ohio today and arrives at a railroad crossing — with dozens of coal cars passing by — it may come as some surprise to learn there was a time not all that long ago when most of those coal cars did not exist. At the turn of the 20th century, the railroads were

It was an immense operation: At its height, the Ralston Steel Car Co. employed hundreds of people. Much of it is gone now. A few of the factory buildings remain. But in its time —for almost 50 years — the Ralston Steel Car Co. was a great Columbus success. That story and the story of the man who made it happen are well worth retelling. Joseph Stevenson Ralston was born near Hamilton, Ontario, in 1865. His father, Robert Ralston, was a recent immigrant from Ireland. His mother, Sarah Springer Ralston, came from a family that had been in America since 1680 but had fled to Canada during the American R evo l u t i o n because of their loyalty to the crown. Like a ED number of people in LENTZ Canada, and certainly like many more in the United States, Joseph Ralston was a restless young man. After receiving a basic education, Ralston went to sea on a ship called the City of Calcutta out of Glasgow, Scotland. After a four-year apprenticeship, he came home, but soon was on the move once again.

Lee Cochran Sports Editor

Beginning in 1905, Ralston and his backers began a process that was not short of amazing. Rarig Engineering had a big factory building but little about it had anything to do with building rail cars. The new company took the building and began to build rail cars. While this went on, it completely gutted the interior of the old building and then proceeded to build a new building several hundred feet long to accommodate an assembly line to produce rail cars. When all of that was done, the company then went back and tore down the old building and replaced it with a new building. And while all of this was happening, it continued to build steel cars. Between 1906 and 1911, the company built more than 10,000 of the new cars and soon found them shipped to all parts of the world. As just one example, in 1909, the company sold 50 of its cars to the South Manchurian Railway and sent the entire consignment to China in pieces, packed in crates. Over the years, Ralston built not only a factory but an entire community on the East Side of Columbus. The area sat on the north side of the rail yards to the east of Milo Grogan. It was a selfcontained world with most of its residents earning their livelihoods at the great factory. Joseph Ralston died in 1920. F.

BUSINESS START-UPS Continued from page A1 where the city of Westerville would like to enter into.” She said incubators help startup businesses succeed by providing entrepreneurs with the support and resources they need to be successful. Eighty-seven percent of businesses that participate in business-incubator programs are still in business within five years of starting up, Colley said, compared with 50 to 60 percent of business startups overall. Eighty-four percent of companies that participate in business incubators stay in those communities, she said. For every $1 that’s invested in an incubator, Colley said, cities see $30 in tax revenue. Westerville’s incubator would be a 15,000- to 22,000-squarefoot facility with lab space and offices, Lauffer said. It would serve 15 to 25 companies that would operate from within the incubator space, plus five to 10 businesses that would be affiliated with the incubator but located elsewhere.

Incubator businesses would have four to five people who would work through the program, graduating after 18 months or two years, she said. During that time, the goal would be to help those businesses grow to having between 20 and 25 employees, she said. Companies would enter into the incubator program through an application process, and the incubator itself would provide coaching and mentoring, a resource network, technology commercialization and access to capital. It could receive further funding through grants, Lauffer said. She said the incubator could take shares of start-up companies to hopefully generate future revenue. Council members said they have questions that need to be answered before they vote to move forward with an incubator. Chairman Mike Heyeck said he would like to see specifics on how the incubator would fund itself after the two-year startup. “I would still like to see the cir-

GEESE ISSUE cle of dollars — the dollars in and the dollars out,” he said. Heyeck said he also has concerns about the high salaries attached to the incubator’s fulltime positions. The plan presented to council shows the incubator director making $125,000 in salary and benefits during the first year and the assistant director making $93,750 in salary and benefits. “I wouldn’t want to be paying more than department heads or city managers to those folks,” he said. Council member Larry Jenkins said he fears the incubator would focus too heavily on new businesses when the city should be focusing on aiding its existing businesses. “I want to make sure we’re allowing some of our successful businesses the chance to grow,” Jenkins said. “I’d rather work with a company I know is going to partner long-term with Westerville.”

Continued from page A1 the geese. The geese will see the dogs as predators, Auler said, and find new places to frequent where they won’t be disrupted. “Eventually, what happens is you see a reduction where the geese move to a new location,” he said. While the efforts will be focused on the community center, sports complex and Hoff Woods Park, the city’s problems should be solved because those are the three locations where the geese find their ideal conditions: food, water and a lack of predators, Auler said. Last week marked the first time the dogs were present in the parks, and the city already saw fewer geese flocking there.

“We’ve already begun to see a reduction because we’re doing counts,” Auler said. The herding dogs will continue to visit the parks on a regular basis for a cost of $9,000 a year, Auler said. The city estimates that it was spending $5,000 to $6,000 on the manpower needed to clean up parks with goose problems. “We’re going to recoup that in improved services for our residents and in labor,” he said of the cost. The city also is asking for park patrons’ help in keeping geese away from city parks, Auler said. The department will be posting signs in parks asking visitors not to feed the wildlife; doing so exacerbates the problem. “The main thing is: Please don’t feed the geese,” Auler said.

CASON RETIRES Continued from page A1 lence. 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 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 Uni-

EMERSON Continued from page A1 The students said they’re determined to help provide others with access to clean and safe water in order to prevent needless deaths. “More than 4,000 children die each day from dirty drinking water,” said fourth-grader Connor Lewis. “That’s more than die from HIV and malaria combined,” added fourth-grader Ellie Bouton. To help shed light on the cause, and to raise money to pay for the PUR water packets, the students set up displays at the Westerville Visitors and Convention Bureau’s Fourth Fridays, the Uptown Westerville farmers market and other community events. In all, Taylor said, they raised $2,000 last year for the Children’s Safe Drinking Water Project. The money goes to buy the PUR water packets, which cost 10 cents apiece and purify 10 liters of water. The packets clean contaminated water to meet World Health Organization standards for safe drinking water. One dollar in donations provides one child with clean water for 50 days, and $7.50 supplies clean water for a year, the students said. This year, the students are looking to expand their efforts. They wrote to Westerville Mayor Kathy Cocuzzi, who was expected to issue a proclamation at the March 15 city council meeting, after ThisWeek’s press time, declaring that Westerville will recognize United Nations World Water Day on March 22. During that week, dubbed World Water Week, the students plan to increase their educational and fundraising campaign by setting up displays and fundraising jars in local businesses throughout Westerville, Dailin said. She said she expects the project to continue to grow each year as more students get involved and students who participate graduate to other grades or other schools and take their passion for the cause with them. “It inspires people. They feel proud. I feel proud, myself,” Dailin said. “A lot of the students want to do more.” For more information about Emerson’s cleanwater initiative, call the school’s office at (614) 797-7080. All money raised by the students is donated to the Greater Cincinnati Foundation Children’s Safe Drinking Water Fund.

versity 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.

UNIONS Continued from page A1 “The way we see it is, it’s like an attack on the public employees and the people who do public service,” Ullom said. The bill, which passed the Ohio Senate by a 17-16 vote March 2, would limit collective bargaining for public employees to little more than salaries. It also would limit how much Ohio’s governments can contribute to employees’ pensions and health benefits. Chris Williams, president of the Westerville Education Association, said the March 15 rally largely was to educate local union members about the impact S.B. 5 would have on them and to energize them to come out against it. “We’re all unified in the essence that we’ll be impacted if Senate Bill 5 passes,” Williams said. “It will make it very difficult as to how we’ll be able to bargain in the future, if we’re able to bargain at all by the time this is over.” Ullom and Williams said members of their unions have been attending rallies against the bill at the Ohio Statehouse over the past several weeks. Often, police and firefighters, whose shifts give them mornings and afternoons off, have been at the Statehouse during the day, and teachers have been encouraged to go down in the evenings after school, Williams said. Despite the efforts against the bill, Williams and Ullom said they are expecting it to pass easily in the Ohio House. The local union leaders are looking to participate in petition drives to get a referendum on the bill onto the November ballot. “There’s no defeating it yet … but the numbers they have there with the Rs and the Ds, it’s pretty likely that it’s going to pass unless someone there realizes that what they’re doing is wrong,” Ullom said. He said collective bargaining is key for Westerville’s safety forces because it allows police, firefighters and medics to bargain for working conditions that keep them safe and increase their ability to aid residents. “We need to have the ability to sit down at the table and be part of the talks concerning our safety and our health,” Ullom said. “If the firefighters are safer in performing our jobs, the citizens reap the benefits of that.” Williams said he worries that without the ability to collectively bargain lucrative salaries and benefits for teachers, fewer people will enter or remain in public education, decreasing the quality of public schools and the opportunities provided to youth. “Education becomes kind of a Peace Corps activity where you’re in it for a few years, then you move on,” Williams said.

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 foodfriendly 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 vinai-

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 customers. 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 ask for extra portions. “We give you what will fill you up,” she said. “We don’t ration

it.” 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

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. DublinGranville Road and have a less formal menu.

Local government cuts ‘drastic,’ coalition contends By JENNIFER NESBITT and GARY SEMAN JR. ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Gov. John Kasich’s proposed two-year budget calls for reducing funding to Ohio’s local governments by roughly 25 percent per year by 2013. And members of the Local Government Fund Coalition aren’t pleased. “Right now, we think that’s a pretty dramatic cut and we think it may be disproportionate to what the other cuts will be,” said Susan Cave, executive director of the Ohio Municipal League. “But we haven’t seen the total picture yet.” Members of the coalition will examine the budget over the next week to see where other funding sources stand, she said. Kasich’s budget proposal, released Tuesday, March 15, calls for giving the Local Government Fund $526-million in 2012 and $339-million in 2013. The fund, which is projected to get $665-million this year, helps pay for a wide range of local services, including safety forces, parks and recreation, public health clinics, homeland security and natu-

ral disaster response. The state allocates money from the fund to Ohio’s counties, which reserve some of it for their own general funds and divvy the rest among local municipalities. Franklin County gets $84.3-million from the fund. Westerville receives around $1.7-million annually from the fund, which then goes into its $32million general fund, city manager Dave Collinsworth said. “It’s not a small piece of the puzzle,” Collinsworth said. In preparation for the biennial state budget, Westerville removed the money it receives from the fund out of the second half of the city’s 2011 budget and out of the remaining four years of the city’s five-year financial forecast. “That number has been flat or dropping over the years because the state has not been putting additional dollars into that fund,” he said. “It’s been a pretty stagnant resource for us, but it is a significant dollar amount. That was one of the areas of concern that we have.” To accommodate the anticipated losses in Local Government Fund revenue, Collinsworth said

the city scaled back on the capital improvements it had planned in order to save the income tax revenue that funds those improvements. It also reduces the amount of money the city will have in reserve, Collinsworth said, but even with the cuts, Westerville will continue its fiscal policy of having six months worth of expenditures in reserve for all five years of its financial forecast. Collinsworth said the city has been in touch with state legislators to voice concerns about cuts to the Local Government Fund. While he said he understands cuts to the fund, the state must maintain it because, historically, the LGF was a concession made to municipalities when the state moved to take property tax authority from municipalities. “We understand it’s likely there’s going to be some cuts, but there should be a continuation of the Local Government Fund,” Collinsworth said. “It’s a longstanding agreement between the state and its local government.” Moving forward, members of the Local Government Fund Coalition said they will voice their con-

cerns to the legislature, which will take up the budget negotiations. Representatives of the coalition said in interviews last week that sizeable cuts to the fund could have drastic consequences. Matthew DeTemple, executive director of the Ohio Township Association, said the governor had indicated that cost-saving actions in the budget would help ease local budgetary shortfalls. “We haven’t seen those, so we


can’t know what those are going to be like,” DeTemple said. “But it’s hard to believe that cost-saving measures that are part of the budget are going to offset a 50percent cut.” In his proposal, Gov. Kasich met his pledge to balance the budget, which is facing an $8-billion hole, without tax increases. Matt Mayer, president of the Buckeye Institute of Public Policy Solutions, a free-market think




tank based in Columbus, said it’s “gut-check time” for all Ohio agencies that need to look at things they can live without. “I agree they shouldn’t bear the brunt of balancing the budget,” Mayer said of local governments. “But there are going to be cuts. Everyone’s going to have to make concessions. We’ve grown government to a level we can’t afford, so we have to separate the wants from the needs.”


Marburn Academy is proud to acknowledge the contributions of Robert S. Garek Merit Scholarship recipient Alex Foster to the Marburn Academy community. 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.

Hadler likely to request vote on Walmart store By JENNIFER NESBITT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Hadler Cos. will present its amended plans for a Westerville Square Walmart to the city’s planning commission March 23 and likely will ask the commission for a vote. Westerville planning administrator Rich Kight said the final plans submitted for Westerville Square by the Hadler Cos. largely are the same as those seen by the commission at its Jan. 26 meeting, but the company has attempted to address concerns raised at that time. “They’ve done some fine-tuning in response to some of the questions that were raised the last time,” Kight said. “I don’t think the changes are significant. It’s still substantially the same application; they’ve just tried to address some of the questions.” The Hadler Cos. plans call for demolishing three storefronts at the center of the Westerville Square plaza, totaling 90,500 square feet, and constructing a 108,441-square-foot Walmart in their place. The rest of the center would be renovated to match the new storefront. The plans presented to the commission in January included a brick façade on all four sides of the center, with footers added to brick columns, parapets at the center’s corners and brick walls to shield utility meters and loading bays at the rear of the center. The plans also showed landscape islands and end caps added to the parking lot, along with a landscaped, park-like greenspace along South State Street and the retention of an existing greenspace at the northwest corner of the site. The company also added a low brick wall with landscaping to the eastern edge of the parking lot to help separate it from Otterbein Avenue and a 6foot wooden fence along the northern border to help shield the neighboring retirement community from the shopping center. In January, members of the planning commis-

sion said the plans were an improvement over the company’s previous proposal, but concerns remained over how well the newly constructed Walmart would tie in visually with the rest of the center and about a lack of a plan for the older outparcels that line Schrock Road. The impact on traffic near the Schrock Road and South State Street issue also continued to be a concern. Traffic studies showed the intersection dropping from its already failing “E” rating to an “F” rating with the renovations at the center. Kight said he expects the Hadler Cos. to ask the planning commission to vote on the proposal. The commission will have to vote on whether the plans constitute a “major” or a “minor” modification. If it were declared a “minor” modification, the planning commission would have the final approval. If it were declared a “major” modification, the planning commission would send the proposal to Westerville City Council, along with a recommendation to approve or reject the plans. Because the city expects a large public turnout for the Westerville Square discussion, Kight said it has been placed last on the agenda and will not be discussed until 7 p.m. The other two items on the March 23 planning commission agenda include a request for a conditional use permit by the Uptown Westerville Farmers Market, which market organizers will be required to get if city council approves — as expected — changes to Westerville’s seasonal sales code March 15; and a rezoning request from Otterbein University for a home it recently acquired at 5 West St. The university is seeking a change from “planned neighborhood district” zoning to “education area 1” zoning in order to designate the property as part of the university, Kight said. The university plans to use the house, previously a bed-and-breakfast, for office space, he said.

by Greg VanHorssen CATCHY WORDS You may already know that numerous studies show that eating fish regularly helps improve cardiovascular health. If so, you shouldn’t be surprised that a new study shows that consuming omega-3 fatty acids and fish is associated with a reduced risk of age-related hearing loss. Study participants who consumed the most total omega-3s and the highest intake of the complex omega-3s found in fish were at lower risk of hearing loss. People who ate fish at least twice a week were 42% less likely to suffer hearing loss over five years than those eating fish less than once a week. Non-fish sources are available for those not partial to eating fish but desirous of consuming omega-3 fatty acids to preserve hearing. Whether by consuming foods high in omega-3 fatty acids or wearing ear plugs in noisy environments, all of us should strive to protect our hearing throughout our lives. At ABSOLUTE HEARING SOLUTIONS, our trained professionals will take the time to listen to you, learn about your specific needs, and select the right hearing instrument for you. We offer a wide range of hearing devices to meet all budgets and pride ourselves on the exceptional follow-up care we provide to all our patients. We invite you to call us today at 614-654-4309 to schedule a hearing evaluation. We are located at 1000 Morrison Rd., Suite H, Gahanna.

We handle Starkey, Phonak, Siemens, Unitron, MicroTech, GN ReSound, Rexton, Oticon, and Widex. Plus, we have the same products as NU-Ear, Audibel, AudioSync, and Miracle Ear, but you will save $1,000’s with us! We take a bite out of the cost of hearing aids!

Warriors expecting to return strong squad By SCOTT HENNEN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Losing in a Division I district semifinal ended the season for the Westerville North High School boys basketball team, but it didn’t dash the team’s expectations. The Warriors finished 17-6 overall, losing to Gahanna 65-63 in overtime March 5 at the Fairgrounds Coliseum. The Warriors expect to return four starters, all of whom averaged in double figures or close to it, so the future

looks bright. Gahanna coach Tony Staib even took notice. “We had a lot of seniors who have led us all year, but Westerville North has a lot of good underclassmen,” Staib said. “(The Warriors) will be really good next year.” Those four returning starters are sophomore guards Adrian Cook (5foot-9) and Jack Gibbs (5-11) and junior forwards Matt Rhodes (6-5) and Taivion Thomas (6-5). Gibbs was second-team all-district and first-team all-OCC-Cardinal Divi-

sion, leading the team in scoring (18.1 points), assists (4.5) and steals (3.7) per game. Rhodes was third-team all-district and first-team all-league, averag-

ing 15.8 points and 4.4 rebounds while making a team-high 52 3-pointers. Thomas was second-team all-league and averaged 12 points, a team-high seven rebounds and 2.2 steals. Cook was honorable mention all-league, scoring 9.7 points per contest with 3.4 assists and 1.3 steals. “I think (the district semifinal loss) is something we can build on,” said coach Kevin Thuman, who finished his 16th season leading the program. “They probably don’t want to go through this feeling again. If they make

the right decisions in the offseason, they can do even better next year.” The Warriors finished 10-4 in the OCC-Cardinal to tie Olentangy Liberty and Westerville Central for second behind Westerville South (13-1). Dublin Jerome and Dublin Scioto tied for fifth at 4-10 followed by Olentangy (3-11) and Marysville (2-12). North had three seniors in 6-2 forward Tucker Arthurs, 6-5 center Drake Jackson (4.5 points) and 6-3 forward See NORTH, page D2


‘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, following the late Bill Alspach. “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

Wildcats advance to regional By JEREMY STEWART ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Despite having several highly talented rosters over the years, the Westerville South High School boys basketball team hasn’t always fared well in the Division I district tournament. But the top-seeded Wildcats made sure this wasn’t one of those years, as they beat eighth-seeded New Albany 69-54 in a district final March 11 in the Fairgrounds Coliseum to capture their first district championship since 2008 and their third overall. The victory pushed the win total for 24th-year coach Ed Calo to 333.

“We’d like to have 20 district titles,” Calo said. “But we only have three. We’ve had some great teams in the past. I think that we’ve had great seasons, but something always seems to happen down here (at the Fairgrounds). I’m happy for our kids that they worked so hard to get this one.” South, which improved to 23-1, advanced to play Liberty Township Lakota East in a regional semifinal at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 17, at the Fairgrounds. The winner plays Gahanna or Northland in a regional final at 7:30 pm. Saturday, March 19, at the Fairgrounds. The regional champion advances to a state semifinal at 8:30 p.m. March 25

at Ohio State. Lakota East defeated Cincinnati Princeton 48-36 in a district final March 12 to improve to 23-1. The Thunderhawks are making their first trip to regional since the school opened in 1997. Their lone setback was a 66-65 loss to Middletown in their regular-season finale Feb. 18. Lakota East is led by 5-foot-11 senior guard Michael Boyd, who is averaging 12.7 points and 4.2 assists. His scoring totals have fallen off in the postseason, however, as he was held to six points against Princeton and seven points in a 45-32 win over Cincinnati St. Xavier in a district semifinal March 5.

As teams have focused on stopping Boyd, other players for Lakota East have stepped up, including 6-0 senior forward Jalen Goodwin, who averages a team-high 5.4 rebounds and had 12 points against Princeton. South has dealt with similar issues as opponents have focused on stopping guard Traevon Jackson, who averaged 18.3 points during the regular season but had 13 points against New Albany. Jackson had only seven points before making six free throws during the final 1 minute, 15 seconds. South led New Albany 16-11 after See SOUTH, page D2

Coach: Central made strides this season By FRANK DiRENNA ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Chances are Westerville Central High School boys basketball coach Todd Minney and his team won’t forget this season anytime soon. Faced with an 8-6 record and coming off back-to-back losses to Westerville South 73-53 on Jan. 21 and Westerville North 7770 on Jan. 25, the Warhawks reassessed their season and began what they called “the journey.” That journey included a ninegame winning streak and a berth in a Division I district final, where the Warhawks provided Northland — ranked second in the final state poll — a test before losing 65-62 on March 11 in the Fairgrounds Coliseum. Central, which lost to Northland 61-42 in a district final last season, finished 17-7 overall. “We’ve talked a lot about the journey,” Minney said. “The journey is just beginning, whether it’s basketball or a life journey. It’s learning from all the hard work that you put in and you reap what you sow. These kids are going to be, if not already, great See LARSON, page D5 people. I’m so proud to be a part

Stephenson defends BYU’s strict student honor code Like many, Maggie Stephenson is curious to see how far the Brigham Young University men’s basketball team can advance in the NCAA tournament. The 2006 Pickerington High School Central and 2010 BYU graduate wonders how much of a run the Cougars can make without sophomore Brandon Davies, who has been suspended for the rest of the season. Davies, a 6-foot-9 center, was kicked off the team March 1 for violating BYU’s honor code by having premarital sex with his girlfriend. The university, located in Provo, Utah, is affiliated with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. “When I first read about it, I felt bad for him,” said Stephenson, who had

classes with Davies and was a student teacher at his former high school in Provo. “I can’t imagine how he feels. “But when I heard all the negative things being said PAUL about BYU, it made BATTERSON me mad. I’ve heard people say, ‘Why would anyone want to play at BYU?’ I can tell you firsthand that playing for BYU was one of the best experiences of my life.” Stephenson was a catcher and utility infielder for the Cougars softball team the past two years. Although she

is not Mormon, she passionately defends her alma mater. And part of the reason why Stephenson, who is Catholic, said she enjoyed her time in Provo was because of BYU’s stringent honor code. Each BYU student — not just athletes — is asked to commit to nine principles. Among them: abstaining from tea, coffee, alcoholic beverages, tobacco and substance abuse, observing a dress code (no shorts above the knees and no midriff-revealing shirts) and grooming standards (no beards or mustaches), participating regularly in church services and living a chaste and virtuous life. Students also have to receive an “Ecclesiastical endorsement” from their

Mike Barnett of the Westerville North High School football team has committed to Kentucky Christian. Barnett, a safety, made a team-leading 113 tackles and had three interceptions last season. “He was hurt part of last year and still played well, and opposing coaches raved about him,” North coach Mike Owens said. “I think he’s an excellent fit with (Kentucky Christian) coach (Mike) Furrey, so it’s exciting.” Furrey is a Hilliard native and former Cleveland Browns wide receiver. Kentucky Christian started its football program in 2008 and competes in NAIA as a member of the MidSouth Conference. Barnett joins North teammate Kalen King at Kentucky Christian. King signed with the Knights in January.

He had 10 points in the first half and finished with 12. New Albany cut its deficit to 46-41 with 37 seconds left in the third quarter, but guard Ben Jones made a layup as time expired in the third quarter to make it 48-41 and scored seven of the Wildcats’ first 12 points of the fourth quarter. Jones finished with a team-high 23 points. “We all just move the ball and everybody has confidence in everybody,” Jones said. “We know that we don’t have to rely on (Jackson) to score, and if

and to your team, but you’re making one to the whole community.” Stephenson said the honor code fosters a family atmosphere. “BYU is the first campus I’ve been on where I could walk up to any student, faculty or university personnel at any time and ask for help and immediately receive it,” she said. “I never felt scared at night and always felt safe.” In a society where rules are often winked at but rarely followed, it’s comforting to know characteristics like honor and sacrifice are not only enforced but also might be making a comeback.

religious counselor and non-LDS students have to undergo an interview with the school’s chaplain before gaining admission. No one at BYU is above the honor code. Last year, running back Harvey Unga, BYU’s all-time leading rusher with 3,455 yards, and his girlfriend, Keilani Moeaki of the Cougars women’s basketball team, were suspended for the same violation as Davies. Stephenson was sent back to her dorm from a testing center because her shorts were too short. “I never thought about the length of my shorts before I went there. I was always in cutoffs,” Stephenson said. “But when you’re out there, you’re not just making a commitment to yourself

he’s not doing it, then we’re going to pick him up and he’s going to pick us up later.” As unkind as the district tournament has been to South over the years, the regional tournament has been even tougher. The Wildcats lost to Mansfield Senior 67-65 in a regional semifinal in 1990 and, in 2008, beat Dublin Scioto 55-49 in a regional semifinal before losing to eventual state champion Newark 62-57 in a regional final.

Gahanna, which is led by senior guard and Ohio University-recruit Stevie Taylor, beat Walnut Ridge 47-44 in a district

GCSTO holding tryouts for swimmers The Greater Columbus Swim Team of Ohio (GCSTO) is looking for new athletes for its spring season, including its evening swim team programming and its daytime home school programming. New swimmers are allowed a week with the team to see what it has to offer before deciding to commit. The team practices at Columbus Academy, the Concourse Hotel Fitness Club and St.

Charles Preparatory School. The team also has started a scholarship program for students in Columbus City Schools. Athletes who have competed only for summer and high school teams, or those new to swimming, are eligible for the scholarships.

underdog in this one,” Minney said. “I think our kids truly believe in who we are as a program and how hard we work in practice. We’ve gotten better in every single game this whole year. These kids are committed to being great players on the floor, great citizens off the floor, great people in the future.” Central earned the respect of Northland coach Satch Sullinger. “We played them last year and those kids are hungry,” Sullinger said. “They reminded me of the beginning of us when we started becoming hungry. Those kids are still crying. I wouldn’t want to run into them next year. They’re hungry. They held that hunger for a whole year.” Seeded 15th in the district, Central reached a district final by beating 12th-seeded Mount Vernon 70-57 in the first round Feb. 22, 10th-seeded Olentangy Orange 58-46 in the second round Feb. 25 and third-seeded Upper Arlington 59-56 in a district semifinal March 5. The Warhawks went 10-4 in the OCC-Cardinal Division to tie Olentangy Liberty and Westerville North for second, behind Westerville South (13-1) and ahead of Dublin Scioto (4-10), Dublin Jerome (4-10), Olentangy (3-11) and Marysville (2-12).

ThisWeek’s 2010-11 Super 12 WRESTLING TEAM The Captain

Brothers helped toughen Delande By JEREMY STEWART

About the athletes…

AL CASERTA Olentangy



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.”

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.”

ANGELO DISABATO Hilliard Davidson



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.

Chase Delande went 46-2 this season, capped with the Division I state title at 145 pounds.

Past Captains Westerville North’s Josh Demas (2009-10), North’s Jesse Dong (2008), Westerville Central’s Brendan Barlow (2007), Westerville South’s Anthony Ciraky (2006), Hamilton Township’s Nick Hackett (2005), New Albany’s Larry Reichard (2004), Westland’s T.J. Enright (2003), Hamilton Township’s Jason Hackett (2002), DeSales’ C.P. Schlatter (2000-01), Ready’s Tommy Rowlands (2000) and Pickerington’s Keaton Anderson (1999).



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.

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.


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).


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.”


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.

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.

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.”

Sullinger, Lee will be missed on, off courts in City League It will feel a bit odd once the district basketball tournament rolls around next year. For much of the past three decades during February and March, one thing you knew you’d see was the intensity displayed by the Brookhaven High School girls team and its passionate coach, Reggie Lee. On a similar scale during recent years, the Northland boys team brought one of the best assemblies of talent in central Ohio history to the floor every night under larger-than-life coach Satch Sullinger. With both men having announced that they won’t be back next year as coaches, things won’t be the same in either sport. After Lee took over the Bearcats’ program in 1981, he did more than just win seven district titles, the 1996 Division I state championship and 515 games. With a style centered on showing tough love to his players during practices and timeouts, Lee helped to pioneer that females were capable of memorable exploits on the court when girls basketball still was in its infancy at the state level. “When I first started coaching, I coached boys, and I wouldn’t have coached girls if not for what (Pickerington North coach) Dave (Butcher) and Reggie did,” Gahanna girls coach Rick Hauser said. “What would Reggie have been able to do if he’d had a feeder program?” Sullinger first coached at the high school level with the Columbus East boys team from 198385 and helped rebuild the Beechcroft boys team into a City League-North Division power in the early 1990s. He took over a Beechcroft team that had gone 2-19 in 1990-91 and had the Cougars in the City title game in 1994. Sullinger then spent three seasons at Reynoldsburg and three at his college alma mater, Oberlin, before taking over Northland’s program in 2000-01. While it took time to transform the Vikings

into a winner, Northland’s run through the City — and central Ohio — has been memorable. With Division I college talent such as Devon Moore, J.D. Weatherspoon and Jared Sullinger, the Vikings won district titles in 2007 and last year and were state champions in JARROD 2009. They’ve also won 74 ULREY consecutive City games. What the two men provided off the court has been even more important. During his first season at Beechcroft, Satch Sullinger told The Columbus Dispatch that “I think my niche is here, where I can influence lives. I want to be an impact player.” With constant preaching about accountability and being a good citizen off the court, he did what he could to live up to that mantra. For Lee, helping his athletes and students pursue college educations has brought him as much satisfaction as the numerous victories he has earned on the court. Particularly in the City, the influences of Lee and Sullinger over the years can’t be underscored. There are some veteran boys coaches in the City who will remain, and there are some fine young coaches such as brothers Jason Bates of Walnut Ridge and Michael Bates of Africentric. One of the most respected girls coaches in the City will remain in Will McKinney, who often has called Lee one of his mentors. But in multiple aspects, the departures of Lee and Sullinger will create an unquestionable void. For the sake of central Ohio basketball — and for the development of young people who walk the halls at Brookhaven and Northland — let’s hope someone can come close to filling the shoes of Lee and Sullinger over the coming years.

see the same people on press row and it even goes so far that I can look at certain seats in the stands and see the same fans in those seats. Can you imagine if those seats could talk? What stories they could tell. What a history they could send to us of all the things that have happened since the first state tournament was held here in 1923. Some people call this the ‘Old Barn’ and maybe that is what it is, but this ‘Old Barn’ has been a great place for me to work for a long time.”
