Traffic death

Call renewed for speed limit reduction By KEVIN PARKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

In an impassioned letter seeking to find some meaning in the tragic death of a friend, Clintonville resident Donna Leigh-Osborne is calling on city officials to reduce the speed limit along the stretch of North High Street where Molly Palsgrove Davis lost her life on March 15.

Clintonville Area Commission members will consider adding their weight to the request at their May meeting. The issue came up briefly at last week’s monthly session. Chairman John DeFourny asked his colleagues to discuss the matter with their constituents. Davis, 61, died at Riverside Methodist Hospital from injuries sustained in a 4:48 p.m. crash at the intersection of East Torrence Road and North High

Street. The Montrose Way resident, according to published reports, was westbound on East Torrence when the vehicle she was driving was struck by a car headed southbound on High Street. “There is a traffic light at the intersection, but police didn’t say who had the right of way,” according to the initial report in The Columbus Dispatch. “The crash remains under investigation.”

Davis was a muchloved fifth grade teacher at Cassingham Elementary School in Bexley. She was named Bexley’s Teacher of the Year in 1983 and Ohio Teacher of the Year in 1984, according to Molly Palsgrove Davis her obituary.

The letter from Leigh-Osborne grew out of discussions in the CAC’s planning and development committee, of which she is a member. “For the last three years, as a member of the planning and development committee of the Clintonville Area Commission, I have asked the city for a speed reduction on High Street through ClinSee CALL RENEWED, page A2

Columbus councilman visits CAC meeting By KEVIN PARKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

During remarks at last week’s monthly meeting of the Clintonville Area Commission, City Councilman Zachary M. Klein said that he sees some merit to letting citizens themselves initiate the process for issue code violations. Zachary M. “I think it’s a great idea,” Klein Klein said, acknowledging that the city does not as many code enforcement officers as some residents would like. “We need to be creative about addressing those issues,” the council member added. CAC District 6 representative Jennifer Kangas, however, urged the councilman to reconsider, suggesting that allowing people to initiate complaints against neighbors would open the door to a whole host of potential problems. She said that her constituents have informed her they fear consequences See COLUMBUS COUNCILMAN, page A3

The meeting access issue is dead. Clintonville Area Commission chairman John DeFourny stuck a fork in it at last week’s monthly session. What grew into a controversy first arose in January, the result of a question e-mailed to District 1 representative Mike John McLaughlin from constituent DeFourny Jason V. Advani. Advani, who has since become a candidate to replace McLaughlin on the CAC, pointed out that the doors of the Columbus Metropolitan Library’s Whetstone Branch, where the commission gatherings are held, are locked at 9 p.m. See CHAIRMAN, page A2

The customer came bustling into the Curiousity Shop just before closing time one evening. “Let me see my wife’s card,” he asked Lou Slowek, part owner and proprietor. The vintage costume jewelry store at 3387 N. High St. is the kind of place that permits women customers to maintain cards of this or that trinket they might like to one day own. That way, say, an erring husband or boyfriend won’t err further by buying the wrong things in trying to make things right. As Slowek fetched the man his wife’s wishlist card, the husband explained that he and the missus had been sitting together on the couch moments earlier. Then the phone rang. It was her father. Wishing her a happy birthday. “I left her on the phone and came straight here,” the forgetful husband added. “Well, what do you want?” Slowek asked as the man perused his wife’s list. “All of it,” he said, handing it back. “I’m already in trouble.” Lou Slowek is discovering that there is life after Clintonville Electric. The once-dilapidated structure, which housed the historic Clintonville

High St. was torn down beginning in October, after owner Phillip W. Karshner was taken to court by city inspectors over the deteriorating conditions.

Call renewed for speed limit reduction Continued from page A1 tonville to 25 mph,” the letter states. “In Worthington the speed limit is 25 mph. In Old North Columbus the speed limit is 25 mph. In campus the speed limit is 25 mph. In the Short North the speed limit is 25 mph. In downtown Columbus the speed limit is 25 mph. In German Village the speed limit is 25 mph. “Do you see a pattern here? I do, yet

I am consistently told that we cannot have 25 mph in Clintonville.” Leigh-Osborne went on to write that Clintonville claims to be a pedestrian- Donna and bicycle-friendly Leigh-Osborne community, and one that wants to rebuild its business corridor, “yet I am continually told to ac-

cept ‘no’ as the answer” regarding a reduction in the speed limit on most of North High Street in the neighborhood from the current 35 miles an hour. “Two weeks ago, we lost a wonderful member of our Clintonville community because a person who lives at the Clintonville-Worthington line had the notion that driving 60 mph is OK through Clintonville,” Leigh-Osborne wrote. “Until we change the perception that we can get to Worthington or down-

town just as fast on High Street as (state Route) 315 or (Interstate) 71, we will continue to put our residents at greater risk. “I know that the tragic accident was an exception ... but it is the wake-up call to our community.” The letter asks city officials to post a temporary speed limit of 25 miles an hour on North High Street between Hollenback Drive and North Broadway.

Continued from page A1 Commission meetings routinely last much later than that. “If the library is closed for a portion of the meeting, can one argue that these are not necessarily public meetings?” Advani asked in the e-mail. The result was that neighborhood liaison Isom Nivins Jr. brought the matter to the attention of City Attorney Richard C. Pfeiffer Jr. “Citizens should be able to gain access to the meeting, even if they come late,” Assistant City Attorney Stephen D. Dunbar wrote in a Jan. 21 e-mail to Nivins. DeFourny endeavored to put the matter to rest at the March meeting by simply advising citizens to show up on time. “We expect you here at 7,” he said. “That should be the accessibility.” When several others on the commission questioned the advisability of ignoring a ruling from the city attorney, DeFourny accused them of “trying to manipulate and corrupt the commission.” At last week’s session, the chairman said he had been in talks with Pfeiffer and been advised that the locking of the library’s doors posed no open-meeting issue as long as a sign is posted advising people who arrive after 9 p.m. that they must knock, and loudly, in order to gain admittance. DeFourny said that he would be working with library personnel on how best to display such a sign, the wording of which, he added, the city attorney left up to him. In other matters at the April meeting, the two candidates seeking to succeed McLaughlin in District 1 Mike briefly intro- McLaughlin duced themselves to the audience. McLaugh-

lin, who was first elected to the CAC in 2005, announced in March that he would not be seeking another term. Crestview Road resident Rob Wood and Advani, who lives on Olentangy Street, both filed to become the next District 1 representative. Wood said Rob Wood that having an opponent will allow him and Advani to “sharpen our message to the community.” Wood said Jason Advani that he moved to his Clintonville home shortly before the remnants of Hurricane Ike moved through central Ohio in September 2008, causing widespread and sustained power outages. In the wake of the windstorm, Wood said that he saw his new neighbors pull together to help one another. That spirit of cooperation has been lost among commission members, Wood said. While acknowledging that the current commission members were all intelligent, well-meaning people, he said that a better job must be done communicating among themselves regarding the needs of the community, something, Wood said, his management experience would enable him to do. For his part, professional engineer Advani said that the commission has fallen on “difficult times,” that there is a need to re-

turn to “grassroots consensusbuilding.” Their remarks prompted Dave Southan of District 6 to say that in the past nine months the commission has worked closely together and with other groups, in his Dave Southan view. “I believe this can be considered positive progress,” Southan said. Election committee chairwoman Mary Rodgers reported that only one application had been received for a mail-in ballot, and that the deadline for requesting one has passed. The after the commission meeting, Rodgers said that she had received e-mails from two write-in candidates, one each in the previously uncontested Districts 9 and 2 races. Joseph Dunning, 33, of Mehrman Way filed a write-in candidacy for the District 9 seat for which incumbent D Searcy is running again, D Searcy while in District 2, where Sarah Snyder decided against seeking another term, the write-in candidate will be Sarah Snyder Andrew McNulty, 50, of West Bright Road.

Blazer II reported that he had begun working with Northland Community Council vice president Emmanuel V. Remy on what the two are calling “Revamp the Ramp,” an effort to gain permission of Ohio Department of Transportation officials for residents to clean up and improve the landscaping for the Interstate 71 exits at North Broadway and Cook and Weber roads. S o u t h a n James R. added that Blazer II what he described as a “major corporation” had agreed to provide matching money for any such freeway ramp improvement project. Finally, commission members raised no objection to the proposed demolition of the closed White Castle restaurant on North High Street just south of Arcadia Avenue. The building straddles the boundary between the CAC and University Area Commission and will require the blessing of both advisory panels. A White Castle executive thanked the members of the Clintonville commission and then gave them chits good for five free burgers.

Curiousity Shop owner is curious no more Continued from page A1 the store owner feels that far more people simply drove by, convinced the entire block, including the Curiousity Shop, was one big abandoned building. The Curiousity Shop initially opened in 1992 on Parsons Avenue in Olde Town East after Slowek wound up with tons of vintage costume jewelry as a result of doing antique shows. Slowek moved the store to its current location seven years ago, less than a year before Clintonville Electric relocated to a former drug store on Bethel Road, and subsequently went out of business.

“I was a little disconcerted,” Slowek said of the abrupt departure of his neighboring business. “I was sorry to see such a nice building going to pot.” On one memorable occasion, according to Slowek, neglect of the neighboring structure’s roof resulted in a leak so substantial that it came over into his building and filled some ductwork, which he discovered had crashed to the floor in the night. “My landlord went over and fixed his roof so we didn’t have a leak,” Slowek said. “We didn’t get so much as a thankyou.” Things went from bad to worse, as

the obviously abandoned structure grew graffiti along with broken windows, the Curiousity Shop owner said. “We had winos using this doorway as a bathroom,” Slowek said, jerking a thumb over his shoulder in the direction of a doorway that’s no longer there. “Then they broke in and did all this graffiti in there. They had vagrants living on the back (loading) docks.” All that neglect next door, Slowek feels, kept people from realizing that to cross his store’s threshold is to feast the eye on 17,000 pieces of costume jewelry from the 19th and 20th centuries: enamel, gold and silver pins, brooches,

earrings, cufflinks, rings and more. The Curiousity Shop does restoration and repair of old jewelry and even takes trade-ins, as Slowek was telling a customer who dropped in last week. “Say Aunt Sophie died and you loved her to death but you wouldn’t wear her stuff to a dog fight,” he said. Now that Clintonville Electric is gone, and a fence is up to prevent, as happened one evening, someone from trying to drive through the muddy hole left behind, Slowek said his hope is that “something nice” goes in next door. His ideal would be an eatery made up of old railroad dining cars, places where people

COLUMBUS COUNCILMAN Continued from page A1 such as growing mistrust and suspicion among neighbors if such a process were to go forward. “It doesn’t seem like a good idea for citizens to scout around and look for code violations,” Kangas said. Klein, a native of Belpre who attended Ohio State University and then Capital Law School, has been making the rounds of area commissions throughout the city since he was appointed to council in January. As chairman of the development committee, Klein has scheduled a public hearing for Wednesday, April 27, at 5 p.m. in City Hall regarding his proposals for toughening laws regarding graffiti vandalism, a subject dear to the hearts of several on the CAC. James R. Blazer II of District 3 and Univer-

could eat breakfast, have lunch and then come back in the evening for some fine dining. “Some sort of theme restaurant, not a fast-food restaurant,” Slowek said. “It really would be nice to have a nice place to eat.” NAI Ohio Equities has the property, one section of 0.46 acre and another of 0.11 acre with 185 feet of frontage along North High Street listed for $1,075,000. Messages that were left last week with the two Ohio Equities personnel listed for the site, Peter Merkle and Jim Merkel, regarding any interest being expressed in the property were not returned.

Market volunteers sought; meeting set

sity Area Commission president Ian MacConnell jointly put on a sort of graffiti summit on March 29 that was attended by people from throughout Columbus. In his proposed legislation, Klein is calling for mandatory sentences for repeat offenders. He also wants to make it a requirement that business and residential property owners remove graffiti from structures within 30 days of receiving notification from code enforcement personnel. No formal legislation has been devised as yet regarding a process allowing private individuals to initiate enforcement of the city’s building codes. Klein said that it was merely a concept that has been brought to him by several residents. kparks@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekNews.com

State budget Lack of fix should be foresight led bipartisan, to financial not ideological ‘surprise’ Gov. John Kasich’s proposed budget is not a plan to balance Ohio’s budget, but a means to pursue his narrow, ideological agenda. He is seeking to capitalize on Ohio’s budget crisis to eliminate workers’ rights, outsource core government services and balance the budget on the backs of local governments. His patronizing charge to local officials to make difficult choices ANDREW and to be leaders is misdirectGINTHER ed and reflects an underappreciation of the value cities, villages and townships bring to the state. Two years ago, Columbus faced declining revenue and increased costs, compounded by two recessions within 10 years, the latter being the worst since the Great Depression. Funding for critical social services had been slashed and many city services were discontinued. Recreation centers were closed and entire city departments eliminated. Many city jobs had already been cut, but more workers were let go. Those who remained were asked to make sacrifices; wages were frozen and workers were furloughed. Income-tax revenues continued to decline, state funding continued to shrink and investment earnings evaporated. The city’s budget was structurally unbalanced. Columbus leaders coalesced around a strategy to bring Columbus’ budget back into balance. City workers, including organized labor, agreed to contribute more to cover costs of their insurance and pensions. Elected leaders promised reforms that would further streamline local government and committed to reporting progress to an accountability committee of community members, business leaders and financial experts. The city also committed to stepping up economic development efforts to attract new businesses while making it easier for those already here to expand and create new jobs. And Columbus leaders, Republicans and Democrats alike, asked taxpayers to pay more for services. Columbus voters obliged, choosing to invest in their community rather than see services cut further and their quality of life diminished. Columbus workers continue to make concessions, and the city has implemented changes that will save taxpayers at least $135 million through 2019. The mayor and council have made an unprecedented investment in regional economic development efforts through Columbus2020!, a public-private partnership that includes leaders from the Columbus Partnership, Columbus Chamber of Commerce, CompeteColumbus, TechColumbus, MODE, MORPC, Franklin County, The Ohio State University, Columbus Foundation and Battelle. Unemployment is down, tax receipts have improved and there are signs of growth in the local economy. Gov. Kasich’s proposed budget will further slash local government funding. Reducing the portion of state tax revenues committed to local governments breaks a promise made in 1935, when the Local Government Fund was established. Its purpose was

Columbus City Hall is scrambling to makeup a $5 million reduction to the Local Government Fund (LGF) in 2011. City Hall also will be faced with an additional $15 million reduction to this fund in 2012 and another $20 million cut in 2013. LGF money comes from Ohio taxpayers to help pay for safety services in our own city. I don’t have time to get into the moral question of this odd MATTHEW arrangement, but I do wish to FERRIS comment on the shocking surprise it has brought to our elected officials at City Hall. It should have come as no surprise at all. With an estimated state budget deficit of $8 billion to $10 billion, city officials throughout Ohio knew that big cuts were coming. However, Columbus City Hall failed to foresee these cuts and take adequate budgeting steps to prepare for them. For example, while City Hall claims to have set aside $3 million for anticipated reductions in state aid, it actually projected an increase of $1,319,000 ($39,931,000 in 2010; $41,250,000 in 2011) in expected state funding to the Local Government Fund. How are we supposed to take our elected officials at their word when their actions do not match? If City Hall truly believed big cuts were coming, as they should, then why did they project increased aid to the LGF? In 2009, City Hall scared and shamed Columbus voters into a 25-percent tax increase (2 percent to 2.5 percent; yes, this is a 25-percent increase in the city’s tax rate). As a result, City Hall was able to increase our city’s budget by approximately $50 million between 2010 (approximately $655 million) and 2011 (approximately $705 million). If you consider that the LGF will be reduced by $40 million over three years, then it is easy to see that City Hall would have had more than enough money to offset LGF cuts, if they had hold 2011 spending to 2010 levels. It was irresponsible for City Hall to propose $50 million in new spending when $40 million in state aid was in question. If City Hall is unable to streamline our budget by prioritizing spending, then it should be no surprise what could be in our very near future: another tax increase. Recent mass business exodus is another new surprise for City Hall. With the recently announced departure of Bob Evans (350 jobs lost), and Alcatel-Lucent (600 jobs lost) from Columbus, it will be even more difficult for City Hall to get its act together, as tax revenues will be impacted. Years of neglect and hostility toward Columbus businesses on the part of City Hall have finally taken their toll. There is little to no trust between businesses and our local elected officials. Instead of businesses and jobs heading for the door, why don’t we show our officials at City Hall the door? It is clear to see that our city leadership has let us down yet again. City Hall’s lack of foresight and failure to properly prioritize spending over the years have left Columbus vulnerable to state budget cuts, tax increases and seemingly endless job

COVA’s first-place Lilly Reintegration Award was in the employment category. “Specifically, the Lilly Reintegration Awards honor treatment teams, programs and services that assist those with severe mental illness as they re-enter the community, as well as individuals with bipolar disorder or schizophrenia who provide hope and support to their peers,” according to the announcement. “COVA was honored for its role in a two-year pilot to provide pre- and post-release employment services to inmates on the mental health units in six Ohio prisons with the use of a peer participant on the team.” The pilot program’s goal was to enroll 150 participants. A total 165 enrolled and achieved a 3-percent recidivism rate, the announcement stated. Local mental health center Columbus Area Inc. provided the post-release mental health

Financial finesse

Home sales

Setting and keeping financial goals With the coming of the spring season comes the opportunity to start fresh in all areas of your life — including your finances. As you consider this, it’s important to include financial resolutions on your list. Following are some tips to help you set financial goals and start off on the right foot:  Set measurable goals and put them on paper. Instead of making a resolution to simply save more money, set an amount you’d like to save and chart your progress. Writing out your resolutions creates a contract with yourself that will increase your likelihood of success.  Have a plan. If you decide to save, break it up into more manageable pieces and write down your plan. Reaching $5,000 means saving roughly $420 per month. Then figure out how you can trim about $100 a week from your expenses (bringing lunch from home, skipping the lattes, etc.). By breaking it up, the big number will seem

reachable.  Make it automatic. If creating an emergency fund is your goal, consider having a portion JORDAN of each payMILLER III check automatically deposited into a savings account. Direct deposit makes it less likely you’ll be tempted to use the money for other purposes and both employers and banks make it easy to set up and direct funds into different checking, savings or other accounts. Saving just $25 a week through this disciplined approach will net you $3,900 in three years.  Use a system to track your money. Money management software can provide a complete picture of your personal finances; free demo versions of some of the popular money management programs are available online. Additionally, through online banking, many

financial institutions make it easy to download your account information to these programs.  Save your receipts. Keep all of your receipts and statements for the year in a folder. Having detailed records of expenditures can help you gain a better understanding of your spending patterns and could lead to greater tax deductions for those who itemize. When you set your financial resolutions and develop your plan, include your entire family in the process. This is a great way to teach children how to manage money and develop good spending habits — a crucial life lesson and one that children should learn at an early age. Teaching children about finances and personal responsibility will help them become successful, independent adults. Jordan Miller is a financial center manager with Fifth Third Bank.

City League Notes

Stars, Bruins plan to battle for baseball titles By JARROD ULREY ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Centennial and Briggs high school baseball teams featured a contrast in experience when they met for the City League championship game last May, with the Stars having the more veteran look. This time, both the defending champion Stars and the three-time defending City-South Division champion Bruins possess enough upperclassmen and

depth to make a rematch a possibility May 19. After going 18-6 a year ago and winning its fifth conference championship, Centennial is led by senior returnees Danny Conroy (P/CF), Andrew Erenpreiss (OF), Paul Goble (P/C) and David Perez (3B). Conroy was the No. 2 pitcher a year ago behind 2010 graduate Sean Kennedy, who struck out 13 and gave up just three hits as the Stars beat Briggs 4-0 in the City final last year.

Other key players for Centennial include seniors Michael Clark (SS/P) and Ricky Lee (OF), juniors Bobby Levine (2B/3B/P), Dan McClaskey (1B) and Brandon Upchurch (OF/P) and sophomores Matt Puhlick (2B/P) and Conrad Stephens (3B/OF/P). Centennial, which won its first league title since 2007 a year ago, went 14-0 to capture the City-North title ahead of Whetstone (12-2), as Northland (104), Beechcroft (8-6) and

Brookhaven (6-8) rounded out the top five. The Stars played their firstround league game against Whetstone on April 12. “I think this team stacks up pretty well,” Centennial coach Scott Kirby said. “It’s maybe not as good as last year because last year we had quite a bit of senior leadership and experienced pitching depth, but I’m real impressed with how our young pitchers have stepped up and thrown strikes.”

Briggs went 11-1 to win the City-South ahead of Walnut Ridge (9-3), Columbus West (84), Marion-Franklin (7-5), Eastmoor Academy (3-9), Independence (3-9) and Columbus South (1-11) last spring. The Bruins, who have won eight City championships since 1985, have six returnees from a year ago. Senior Adam Davey has taken over as the No. 1 pitcher and also will play first base. The other returning seniors are Alex Ferrero (SS), Shane Kelly (C),

Ben Lamb (3B/P) and Brett Lawson (3B). Junior Steve Kelly (1B) also is back. Freshmen Justin Bevan (OF), Brody Black (C/DH), Tyrell Harris (OF) and Tavin Howard (2B) also are regulars. “This is probably one of the funnest groups I’ve been around,” Briggs coach Brock Mullins said. “They all love being around each other and competing. They go out and perform, and it’s just been See CITY, page A8

Watterson Roundup

Boys track team builds strength for postseason By AARON BLANKENSHIP ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Watterson High School boys track and field team has spent more time working on strength and conditioning training this year than it did in any of Matt McGowan’s first three seasons as coach. McGowan is optimistic that the Eagles’ hard work will pay dividends when they compete in the Division II postseason meets, beginning in May. “This is the first year that I’ve overseen everything, and we’ve been doing more strength and conditioning,” McGowan said. “I think our student-athletes realize that they need to do more conditioning in the early part of the season to be successful in the later part of the season, and they’ve been working harder at it. We want to do better in the district and regional meets than we did last year, and I think we’re putting ourselves in a position to have a

better shot at being more competitive in those meets.” Leading Watterson in the high jump is sophomore Joe Mankovecky, who cleared 6 feet, 2 inches to place sixth in the regional meet at Lexington last year. Four members of the cross country team will lead the distance and middle distance units in senior Kyle Becker and juniors Zac Lackey, Trevin Pitroff and Matt Richardson. Junior Eric Oman and freshmen Cody Calhoun and Ryan Urquhart are the top sprinters, and senior Michael Lehmann, sophomore Andrew Eschleman and freshman Dominic Lombardi are the top hurdlers. Calhoun also is the team’s leading long jumper. Oman placed 10th in the 200 meters (23.02 seconds) and Richardson finished 13th in the 1,600 (4:56.51) at regional a year ago. “This team is more athletic and has

shown a little more dedication than the past couple we’ve had,” McGowan said. Last year, the Eagles scored 73.5 points to tie DeSales for fourth in the CCL meet, behind St. Charles (132), Hartley (98) and Ready (93), and ahead of Worthington Christian (23). “Hartley has a very good track team and they’re the favorite, but the rest of the teams in the CCL are going to be strong, too,” McGowan said. Watterson scored 56 points to finish

fourth in the district 1 meet at Groveport, behind Eastmoor Academy (140), London (68) and Jonathan Alder (61), before scoring three points to tie Marion Pleasant and Utica for 32nd in the regional behind champion Peninsula Woodbridge (65). Only the top four placers in each regional event qualified for state, and none of the Eagles made the cut. “Our goals are to score more points at district and to get more boys to re-

gional, and it would be nice if we can get someone through to state,” McGowan said. •The girls track team scored 41 points to place seventh in the Red Edwards Golden Eagle Relays on April 9 behind champion and host Big Walnut (96).

Senior Kieran Ryan, juniors Shannon Caldwell, Annamarie Funk and Regina Smith and sophomores Heidi Hetterscheidt and Alisa Noll are the top returning distance and middle distance runners. Senior Kaitlyn Ditalia and sophomore Maria Hoge are the leaders in the long jump, senior Zamone Lenoir is the top thrower in the discus and sophomore Mara Liston is the top high jumper. “We have had a lot of transitions this year,” coach Sherry Yoakam said. “We graduated about 10 seniors last year that held many of our varsity spots and now we are working to replace those athletes. “As a team, we want to always run, throw or jump to our full potential and from there hit as many personal bests as possible. We have quite a few new athletes to the program who are really stepping up and filling in the gaps left from last year’s seniors.” Last year, the Eagles scored 73 points to finish fourth in the CCL meet behind Hartley (160), Ready (108) and DeSales (90), and ahead of Columbus School for Girls (50) and Worthington Christian (13). Watterson scored 37 points to finish sixth in the Division I district 2 meet at Dublin Coffman, behind champion Reynoldsburg (115). Only the top four placers in each district event qualified for the regional at Pickerington North, and 2010 graduate Maria Swartz was Watterson’s lone regional qualifier, placing fourth in the 1,600 (5:25.65) at district.

remarkable.” •SOFTBALL NOTES — The Briggs and Centennial softball teams also are annual contenders to reach the City title game. Last season, the Bruins won their seventh City-South title but lost to Whetstone 3-2 in 10 innings in the conference final. The only starters back from that team are senior shortstop Tabby Biegler and sophomore pitcher Jordan Estep. Also taking on key roles are seniors Emily Regan and Samantha Wolford, who are alternating at second base, juniors Tiera Brewer (CF), Jessyca Chapman (C) and Cassie Wolford (3B) and sophomore Kayla Foster (1B). “We lost seven starters from last year, so we’re definitely rebuilding,” coach Tani Erwin said. “They’ve all played (junior varsity) for a year or two and a couple of them have played in the summer, which helps.” Centennial lost to Whetstone 3-2 and 2-1 last season and finished second in the City-North at 12-2, behind the Braves (140) and ahead of Northland (104), Beechcroft (8-6), Brookhaven (5-9), Mifflin (4-10), LindenMcKinley (3-11) and Columbus East (0-14). Leading the Stars’ returnees is senior catcher Molly Gardner, who made first-team allCity last season. Also back are

senior Ellen Yahnke (CF) and juniors Brionna Brown (SS) and Desi Strickland (3B). Sophomore Haylee Carter has taken over in the circle. “We are extremely young this year,” said Stars coach Larry Howell, whose team beat Whetstone 5-3 on April 7. “We’re starting a freshman, two sophomores and two juniors.” •BATTLING AT THE NET — In the first season of a combined City League in boys tennis last spring, Centennial went 11-0 to finish first, with West (10-1), Briggs (9-2), Northland (8-3), Whetstone (7-4), Brookhaven (6-5) and Eastmoor (5-6) rounding out the top seven. West then beat the Stars 5-0 in the City championship to capture its first conference title since 1998. Junior Santiago Farias, who played second singles last season for the Cowboys, has moved to first singles. Sophomores Randy Pheng and Marcos Gasca are playing second and third singles, respectively. Also for West, junior Conner Grossguth and sophomore Lennon May are at first doubles and sophomores William Heine and Chyton McKinney are playing second doubles. “I think they have a long way to go and are just gaining experience,” West coach Bruce Duffner said. “They’re doing OK so far. We won the City last year, but we had five seniors
