First-quarter income-tax collections

City’s coffers improving thus far in 2011 By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The slogan, “It’s greener in Dublin,” also could be applied to the city’s coffers. While some municipalities across the state wrestle with layoffs and state fund-

ing cuts, Dublin reports an improvement in income-tax collections for the first quarter of 2011. Collections are up by $1.2 million (7.39 percent) for the first quarter of the year, compared to the first quarter of 2010, deputy director of finance Bryan Thurman told council members April 11.

“Overall, the income tax revenue is doing very well,” he said during that evening’s finance committee meeting. Dublin’s income-tax revenue, which makes up a significant portion of the city’s total revenue, decreased for the first time in 2009 by 6 percent from 2008. In 2010, income-tax revenue increased

from 2009 levels by 4.5 percent, to $68.8 million, but still failed to rebound to the 2008 levels of $70.2 million. Dublin’s finance department expected income-tax revenues to continue to increase this year by 3 percent, which, Thurman said, was a “conservative” estimate.

“Typically, we take a very conservative approach in budgeting,” city manager Marsha Grigsby told council. “Part of that is not knowing what would happen with the economy this year.” With $65.9 million expected in inSee CITY’S COFFERS, page A2

Students host rhyming cafe By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

A Scottish Corners Elementary School class spun rhymes at a cafe redolent with the scent of coffee and crowded with people noshing on pastries. Samantha Chatman’s secondgrade class held its first Rhymer’s Diner last week, transforming the classroom into a café where family could listen to poems penned by the students. “I wanted a creative, fun way for my class to share their original poems that they have been working on in class,” Chatman said. “The poetry cafe is not just a way for the students to share with the class but also with their families, friends and other members of the community.” Anticipation was thick among the second-graders as parents and siblings piled into the room. Tommy Squire said he was excited to read his poem, “Fastt Math,” although it wasn’t his favorite original work.

“I wrote six (poems) for my poetry book,” he said. “My favorite is ‘The Day We Shut Down Our Club.’ It’s a true poem. It’s about how nobody came to our club at recess so we had to shut it down.” Megan Solis also wrote six poems. Her favorite was “Run Zebra Run,” which she and a classmate read during the Rhymer’s Diner. Chatman said students have been

writing poems since the beginning of March and have put them into books. Different styles of poetry, including clerihew, diamante and acrostic, also were in the lesson plan. Second-grader Sydney Blake said she enjoyed the lessons on poetry. “It was fun to try to think and rhyme and learn about the different kinds of poems,” she said. Alison Chillson enjoyed it so much

that she wrote 10 poems. Her favorite was about St. Patrick’s Day, she said, although she shared a poem called “Best Friends” during the cafe. Students’ reactions to writing poetry varied, Chatman said, although most, if not all, were excited about the Rhymer’s Diner. “Students responded in different ways. Some really enjoyed specific styles of poetry while others just really enjoyed being able to write about their interests,” she said. “Then there were other students who would rather write a story than a poem. But overall, everyone completed a (poetry) book, and they are ready to share them with their families and friends.” Last week’s Rhymer’s Diner was a first for Chatman’s classroom, although the second-grade teacher said she’s seen it done with middle school students. “I figured there was no reason this second-grade class couldn’t do the same thing,” she said. Though parents laughed and apSee SCOTTISH, page A5

Debate over a nursing home became heated last week as the Planning and Zoning Commission took an informal look at a proposed development at state Route 161 and Shamrock Boulevard. Developers accused commission members of inadequate feedback on a 62,000-square-foot, 120bed nursing home proposed for the southeast corner of Route 161 and Shamrock Boulevard. In January, the commission looked at the site plan, density, parking and architecture. Commission members expressed concerns over the architecture, parking and density. Dublin planner Eugenia Martin told commission members that since the meeting, the developers have worked to address architecture by providing three different ideas and tried to deal with the streetscape, as required by the Bridge Street corridor plan, by adding a public plaza.

Historic Dublin development draws P&Z’s excitement By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

A mixed-used development proposed for Historic Dublin has some local officials excited. A concept plan for office space, retail, restaurant space and 31 residential condos with 126 parking spaces in Historic Dublin went before the Planning and Zoning Commission on April 7. During the meeting, commission members expressed support and excitement over the North Riverview Street project. Two large buildings are proposed from 17 to 53 N. Riverview St. The land includes six homes on the Ohio Historic Registry. Planner Dan Phillabaum said the homes would have to be demolished or moved for the proposed development. The proposal went before the Architectural Review Board in February and drew concerns about parking and the size of the buildings, which would be three and four stories.

City’s coffers improving thus far Continued from page A1 come-tax revenue in the 2011 budget, 75 percent would go to the general fund, with the remaining 25 percent planned for the capital-improvements tax fund. Grigsby said projects Marsha Grigsby around the city could benefit from the additional tax revenues received thus far. “As revenue exceeds projections, we can use that money to accelerate or fund CIP projects or pay down debt,” she said.

The city’s carry-over balance also is increasing. Dublin has tried to maintain a yearend general-fund balance of at least 50 percent of general-fund expenditures, Thurman said, and that figure has increased to about 80 percent. Grigsby said maintaining a large year-end balance gives the city its high credit rating because it marks Dublin’s ability to get through a financial downturn or disaster. “The main reason we have the reserve is, when there are (financial) downturns, we can adjust,” she said. Other funds, including the hotel-motel tax fund and TIF revenues, also showed improvements for the first quarter of 2011.

Developers, commission clash over Shamrock-161 nursing-home plan Continued from page A1 “They are willing to work with planning to get a little more engagement with the streetscape,” she said. Commission members, however, appeared unimpressed with recent efforts. “You have a version of an inside you want and will coat it with what makes us happy,” Amy Kramb said. “I’m not sure the shape works at this site.” Other commission members shared the same sentiments, saying that although having a nursing home on the 4-acre site is appropriate, the building would not fit into the Bridge Street corridor. “I’m OK with the use and the size and the density,” John Hardt said. “I do not believe we’ve solved the architecture of the building. ... I find the problem is the shape and form of the building.” The development plan shows a large building with a main entry point facing Shamrock Boulevard, with three wings. Developer representative Chris Cline said the layout of the building is necessary for nursing stations and other regulations. “They have 500 of these facilities across the country, and it’s been an ongoing improvement process,” Kansas-based architect Dan Dokkin said of developer HCR ManorCare Health Services. The building proposed on Route 161, Dokkin said, is the

result of what has worked at other facilities. Commission member Richard Taylor told developers he understands constraints and suggested another site for the nursing home. “This is a main street. We need an ‘A’ building here. It doesn’t matter what’s on the outside; it’s the same form, the same mass as last time,” he said, suggesting one large building. “I think you should find another site that doesn’t have constraints. … This street clearly calls for this area to become a more urbanized environment, and this does not fit.” Landowner Matt Stavroff expressed frustration over commissioners’ comments on land zoned in 2005 for a nursing home. “I’m just miffed that you guys act like you own this property,” he said. “These guys are leaving for good after tonight.” Stavroff and the developers also said they’ve received little direction. “If you’re not wowed by this, boy, I’m shocked,” he said. “When you say, ‘Make it awesome, make it wow,’” Cline said, “those are useless terms to me.” Stavroff said a nursing home would be built at the site. “We’re approved for senior housing,” he said. The next step for the nursing home will be rezoning and a preliminary development plan if developers decide to move forward.

“Obviously, we’ll be cautious going forward,” Thurman said, “but things are going good. April will be a big month because of tax collections. … All indications show that things are rebounding.” Though council members applauded the increases, Grigsby credited Dublin’s longterm planning that has focused on economic development. “We did have an interesting government early on,” council member John Reiner said. “They were pretty tough and had a ruthless stick-to-itiveness that has allowed us to have this tax base.”

Historic Dublin development draws excitement Continued from page A1 laborative, said the height of the buildings is negotiable. The southern portion of the development that would abut Bridge Street and hold 5,680 square feet of retail, 6,000 square feet of restaurant space and 22,830 square feet of office space is proposed to be three stories with underground parking. The building north of Wing Hill Lane would feature only residential space and is proposed at four stories. Bird said a “large demand and inquiry” made the residential part of the development four stories, but with four units on the top story, “we can lose it,” he said. As for parking, which was a concern for the ARB, Bird said, Dublin’s requirement is too high, especially for a mixed-used development. “The office clears out and the restaurant fills in,” he said, noting that parking turnover is key to a mixed-used development. “You don’t want to have too much parking.” Michael Maloof, who owns buildings in the first block of East Bridge Street, told commission members he’s excited “someone’s willing to take a chance in the area.” He noted concerns with the scale of the proposed project, however. “I think we need to remember it’s Dublin,” he said. “It should have a little charm and character.” Commission member Amy Kramb also expressed some con-

cern over demolishing the six homes on the Ohio Historic Registry. “Demolishing six residences built around 1900, I don’t think it builds on the existing character,” she said. “It creates a new character.” Other commission members welcomed the proposal. “I don’t think we need to be concerned with scale,” Richard Taylor said. “I’m excited about this project. … It certainly is the kind of thing the Bridge Street corridor study calls for.” “For me, it’s something bold and new,” Todd Zimmerman said. “I like it. What I think it’s going to do is spur interest on the east side (of the river).” Parking for the commercial portion of the project was a concern for commission members, who mentioned the need for a parking garage in the historic district. Commission chair Chris Amorose Groomes suggested replacing some of the residential units with parking. Though commission members were largely in favor of the proposal, the preliminary and final development plans as well as property rezoning haven’t been considered yet.

IB students to share art, experience at fair By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The work of International Baccalaureate students will be on display at Coffman High School for many years. At the third annual IB Diploma Program CAS Fair on April 19, students will install a butterfly sculpture in Coffman’s courtyard. The CAS fair gives Coffman students in the two-year diploma program an opportunity to show what they’ve accomplished during the intense coursework that includes foreign language, social studies, math, art and science. At the core of the IB diploma program is a theory-of-knowledge course, an extended essay and CAS (creativity, action and service). Lessons for this year’s IB class included a Holocaust speaker that set things in motion for the butterfly sculpture that will be installed next week. Students followed up with a video on a group of Tennessee children who had nationwide influence with paperclips and butterfly paintings in honor of the Holocaust victims. “We thought a butterfly would be a good symbol to use,” senior Mrinali Sethi said. “The butterfly also provides encouragement for a new world,” IB CAS coordinator Melanie Hitsman said. “They elected to make this butterfly. This is their footprint. It will always stand against bigotry.” Though the butterfly is a contribution from the IB class of 2011, juniors also stepped in to provide butterfly bushes around the art installation.

Along with the art installation slated for 6:30 p.m. April 19, the CAS fair will allow the public a view into how the program challenged and influenced IB students. For the service portion of CAS, students have visited Emerald Crossing and Trillium senior homes. “It’s so much fun and so interesting,” junior Turik Al-Fayyomi said. “You don’t think that generation could connect so much with our generation, but it’s a blast.” Others have raised money for charity and collected books to start a library in Africa. “I’ve been doing fundraisers for Haiti,” senior Annie Lane said. “It’s helped me reflect on how I can make a difference in the community.” CAS also has prompted students to try new things. “It’s pushed me out of my comfort zone,” Hall Wang said. “It made me realize I can actually do something to make a difference in peoples’ lives.” “I realized how there are so many things going on in the world,” Lane agreed. “There are things outside of the Dublin bubble. There are things we need to change.” Students have visited classrooms at Wright Elementary School through an adopt-a-classroom program, which is the brainchild of an IB student. “We befriended a first-grade teacher and hang out with her students. We go in and try to make learning fun,” junior Mark Smithhisler said, adding that ice cream parties, treasure hunts and science experiments have been among the activities done with

Wright students. Other elements of CAS have students reflecting on their time with the Columbus Symphony Youth Orchestra, the softball team and other groups. “I’ve done sports at Coffman since I was a freshman, but CAS teaches you what it really means,” Kayla Whitehouse said. “You can learn to be a leader.” Other IB students created a boxing club at Southmoor Middle School in Columbus. Jenni Yang said the club focuses on getting students healthy but also touches on respect and doing your best. “From the moment it started till now, we’ve seen such improvements in behavior,” she said. “Kids are doing their homework.” The CAS fair will begin at 6:30 p.m. April 19 at Coffman High School, 6780 Coffman Road, with the art installation. The fair will continue in the media center at 7:15 with art, music and presentations.

Commentary & opinion Tourism matters

Dublin has cultivated positive statewide image Dublin is a well-groomed, charming community with friendly people and great restaurants and shopping. This is a view that was shared recently by some Ohio focus-group participants. The Dublin Convention & Visitors Bureau facilitated several focus groups to better understand what people perceive about Dublin and, in particular, how they view Dublin as a destination. This research is one component that helps the CVB create strategies to attract visitors and their travel dollars to Dublin. Simply stated, a focus group is a form of qualitative research in which a group of people are asked about their perceptions, opinions, beliefs and attitudes toward a specific product. In this case, the product was the city of Dublin. Our goal with the focus groups was to gain valuable insight on general perceptions of Dublin as a destination, an understanding of what factors travelers consider for an appealing getaway destination and sources of information used for trip planning and to test some of the bureau’s new creative advertising that will be launched soon to market the city to prospective visitors. The results were extremely positive for the city of Dublin. Many described the city as affluent, home to great architecture and diverse accommodations. Many cited the Dublin Irish Festival, Columbus Zoo and Historic Dublin as great destinations. We also heard that the ease of navigation aspects could be improved to make visits more appealing, such as walkability, better and more visible signs, maps and parking. We learned that the majority of decisions for trips are made by the wife/female partner, especially involving family or children, and that kids typically are the focal

point in the majority of trips. Other insights gained include the importance of packaging to attract visitors SCOTT and the InterDRING net as the goto source for destination planning. As it directly relates to the bureau’s marketing efforts, there was good recall of our destination branding efforts. Several years ago, the CVB unveiled a major new branding and marketing initiative to attract visitors to Dublin. The brand platform was designed to raise Dublin’s awareness with the traveling public by positioning the city as a unique and desirable destination. The new logo and positioning line, “Irish is an Attitude,” makes use of the “Irish” equity that exists in the Dublin name and promotes the idea that you don’t need Irish in your blood,

just in your soul. The logo and positioning line are the expression of the brand — but just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to branding. Yet “Irish is an Attitude” is what visitors come to associate with Dublin — and so it was the inspiration for our website domain: The bureau will use the research gained from these focus groups to create its marketing plan for the coming fiscal year. The marketing plan will include a new printadvertising campaign that was tested with these focus groups. This new campaign incorporates the city’s unique destination brand and highlights all of the unique things we have to offer our visitors. We’d love to hear your feedback on this. “Like” us on Facebook ( Dublin cvb) and tell us what you think.

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 and to be ANDREW leaders is misdirected and reflects an underappreciation of GINTHER 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 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 arrangement, but I do wish to comment on the MATTHEW shocking surprise it has brought FERRIS 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

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

last decade are further shirking their responsibilities by proposing additional cuts of 25 percent in 2011 and 50 percent in 2012. Gov. Kasich rationalizes these cuts by providing “tools� that will allow local governments to reduce costs, including the elimination of collective bargaining through the passage of Senate Bill 5. However, the new law will not have any meaningful impact on the proposed budget, as it cannot be applied retroactively. Contracts in place must be honored. Eliminating prevailing-wage requirements impacts capital projects, not the operating budget. In reality, this is simply a way for the governor to weaken labor unions while reclaiming local tax dollars. Police officers, firefighters and school teachers are not our enemies and we cannot allow the governor to use them as scapegoats in his pursuit of a reckless agenda that will not balance the state budget. Republicans and Democrats who have served as township trustees, school board members, council members or as mayors have for decades made difficult choices while leading their communities through challenging economic times. I call on Gov. Kasich to start making difficult decisions, to be a leader and stop passing the buck. Andrew Ginther is president of Columbus City Council.

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 losses. We didn’t get into this mess overnight, and we won’t get out of it in short order. However, we will not achieve any meaningful improvements in our city until we identify and address some serious obstacles. The only way to get Columbus back on the right track is to make fundamental changes at City Hall. By now, that should come as a surprise to no one.

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 25percent 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.

While some married couples believe that each spouse should conduct his or her financial affairs independently of the other, others agree to share their finances. Recent research suggests that there also seems to be a good deal of gray area in between these two philosophies. According to a small study, about 80% of the married individuals surveyed admit to making secret purchases. Moreover, nearly one in five (18.5%) of the spouses surveyed acknowledged having credit cards of which their married partners were unaware. The most common reason cited for the secretive spending was to prevent a spouse from finding out about the purchase of clothing, accessories, or eating/dining habits. It seems that money can sometimes remain a taboo subject. How you share your income with your spouse is one variable to consider when preparing for future expenses.

St. Brigid awarded healthy-school grant By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

They might not become lean, mean learning machines, but St. Brigid of Kildare School officials hope to make students healthier via a state grant. St. Brigid is one of 20 schools in the state to receive a Healthier Ohio School Challenge Team Nutrition grant from the Ohio Department of Education. The $11,500 grant will be used for the 2011-12 school year. The K-8 school has been pushing health initiatives since 2009, school nurse Peggy Iannarino said. “We formed a school wellness committee. We are using and still working our way through the Centers for Disease Control’s School Health Index,” she said. “They have this tool you can use to assess your school so you can establish where your strengths and weaknesses are.” In fact, Iannarino said, the school wellness committee found St. Brigid needed to improve on nutrition and physical activities. “Being in a suburban district, we have kids who lead very busy lives. They might know about nutrition, but they have busy families and might have a lot of fast food or eat on the run,” she said. “I think we’ve all gotten away from using less prepared foods and are eating less wholesome foods.” Last year, St. Brigid encouraged students to use a website created by the “Fuel up to Play 60” effort that helps them track their servings of fruits, vegetables, lean dairy and whole wheat, as well as daily activities. “We had a friendly competition grade level to grade level,” Iannarino said. “The biggest interest was in fourth and fifth grade. Since our school is K-8, planning a program is tricky because you have to find a program that appeals to everyone.

This one worked.” Students were rewarded for their efforts with additional recess time or a dress-down day. Other efforts going on at the school include physical-activity options instead of board games when students are stuck indoors for recess, and access to more fresh fruits and vegetables. A recently received grant from (Michelle Obama’s initiative) soon will put a salad bar in the school, Iannarino said, and the cafeteria has been taste-testing fresh vegetables, such as snow peas, zucchini and cherry tomatoes. The $11,500 grant from ODE will help support ongoing programs, as well as a few new ones. A school garden that will teach students the importance of fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as a few classroom lessons, has been in the works, Iannarino said, and $500 from the grant will go toward that. “That’s our goal, not just grow food but use it in many academic categories, all aspects of curriculum,” she said. “We’re planning that for next year.” The grant also will fund training and ideas from registered dietitian and St. Brigid parent Julie Tobias. “This grant will allow us to supplement what we are already doing in the school nutritional program,” Tobias said. “Everyone has been so enthusiastic about putting the kids’ nutrition first and going beyond what is required to ensure the best health for our students.” Iannarino said Tobias would attend training and return to St. Brigid with ideas on improving school nutrition and physical activities. “As a school nurse, I have a lot of things I need to balance. As much as I would like to work on these things, I can’t,” she said. “I’m excited Julie would be able to help with that. I think it will have a good impact on our school next year.”

The Ohio Parks and Recreation parks and recreation agencies. The Blazer Parkway water tower will get a new coat of paint, with work slated to start this month. The water tower recoating, which is the first since it was built 17 years ago, will cost the city $532,000. During the paint removal process and first stages of re-coating the tower will be tented, city engineer Paul Hammersmith said. “We want to assure Dublin residents and the many businesses in the Blazer Parkway vicinity, that they will not be impacted in any way by the blasting material or the paint spray,” he said in a news release. “The tenting will provide a protective shield which will contain the removed paint and blasting material, eliminating over-spray on homes, cars and businesses in the tower area.” During blasting and the prime coat spraying process, which is estimated to take four weeks, there will be a “moderate level of noise,” the news release said. Washington Township Fire Station 95, which is in the base of the water tower, will relocate to 5500 Frantz Road during the day while the recoating is done. At night the station will operate out Station 91 on Shier Rings Road. The work is expected to be reg. $2.99 reg. $9.99 done by late June.

DAC event at the Kilgour

Garden party proceeds to benefit arts, education By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers The Dublin Arts Council’s garden party is intended more for art enthusiasts than for green thumbs. The DAC hopes to generate $28,000 during the April 29 fundraiser at the Kilgour Building atrium of OCLC, 6565 Kilgour Place. Last year’s event drew 200 people and raised $24,000. According to David Guion, DAC executive director, proceeds of the garden party support such programs as the free Sundays at Scioto summer concerts, the Gravity’s Ripple dance performance, summer ARTcamps and Art in Public Places projects. The proceeds don’t make up a large part of the art council’s annual revenue, “but any amount at this point in the economy is substantial,” Guion said. “It’s a really important event.” The event also features work from artists whose pieces the DAC has exhibited in the silent auction. “The silent auction raises more than half of the money,” Guion said. “Besides art, we’ve got tickets to the Cincinnati Opera, New York Philharmonic, gift certificates to a variety of restaurants. We also have fitness and spa packages from some businesses this year. … There are also golf packages.” Some of the wine collectors on the DAC board have pulled from their personal stock for a wine basket up for raffle. “I’ll buy a ticket for that,” Guion said.

In addition to food from Bleu & Fig, Bonefish Grill, Bravo Italian Kitchen, J. Liu Restaurant & Bar, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, The Refectory Restaurant & Bistro and The Sisters Sweet Shoppe, wine importer W.J. Deutsch & Sons will provide some of its selections. “It will give people an opportunity to taste some wines they haven’t tasted before,” Guion said. New to this year’s garden-party lineup is Terrence Karn, who provided music for the Gravity’s Ripple performance. “He uses percussion and the trumpet, a flute and recorder,” Guion said. “He’s all over the map, in terms of instruments.” Guion said the event also provides a way for the community to see what the Dublin Arts Council does. “It supports the arts in our community. It’s an essential contribution to keep the arts council vibrant and a part of the fabric of the community,” he said. “It also gives people a time to understand what we do and become more familiar with what we do. You can interact with the board of directors and do some networking. Some people enjoy it to see these faces year in and year out and new people who join the fold.” Tickets are $100 and include food and beverages. Tickets may be purchased by calling the Dublin Arts Council at (614) 889-7444. The garden party will run from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. April 29. For more information on the DAC, visit

In brief Dublin employees receive honors Three Dublin communications technicians were honored by the Ohio Chapters of the National Emergency Number Association and the Association of Public Safety Communications Officials International next week. On April 13, technicians Christopher Burkhardt and

Stephanie Skipworth and communications supervisor Carolyn Fergus were to be honored for their handling of a shooting in Dublin in December. The team received 16 911 calls reporting a shooting at NCO Financial on Dec. 14, 2010. “In the after-incident debriefing, officers made a specific point of praising the dispatch team for

their quick relay of information and made clear that they had changed their response approach based on the information provided,” Jay Somerville, technical-services bureau director, said in a press release. “Had the information flow been delayed by as much as 10 seconds, the suspect would have been past the responders and out of the jurisdiction.”

Grizzell to celebrate frog bill April 29 At 1 p.m. April 29, Grizzell Middle School will honor the efforts of GMS classes dating back to 2002 to have the bullfrog named the official state frog. Grizzell teacher Shawn Kaeser has worked with students over eight years to petition state law makers to name the bullfrog as the state frog. “My classes were working on an Ohio scavenger hunt. We realized that there was no amphibian on the list of state symbols,” Kaeser said in a news release. “So we narrowed the list down to amphibians that would be found in all 88 counties, had great name recognition, and is easily found in Ohio. We came up with the American Toad and the American Bullfrog.” The class chose the bullfrog for its ability to survive and adapt, as early Ohio settlers did. Since 2002, classes have been contacting state legislators with requests to name the bullfrog the state amphibian, but each year the General Assembly would adjourn before the bill was passed. “We would get so close then the General Assembly would adjourn,” Kaeser said. “New students would come to GMS and begin working on Project Bullfrog. So we would have to start over after the next election.”

Coffman jazz bands visit New York Coffman High School jazz and band director Jeremy Bradstreet called a recent trip to New York a success. Coffman’s three jazz bands, which is comprised of more than 50 students, left on March 31 for a short trip to New York that included a performance and visit from jazz legend Wynton Marsalis. The students also received playing tips during a clinic with jazz musicians Wes “Warmdaddy” Anderson and Walter Blanding. The trip included a cruise to the Statue of Liberty and other sightseeing opportunities.

The Beat Arts, eats and fun in central Ohio

FAB 5 By Jim Fischer Few halls are as embedded in the consciousness of popular American music as Harlem’s Apollo Theater. The litany of artists who began their career there reads like a who’s who of jazz, R&B and soul. The Columbus Jazz Orchestra pays tribute to this rich history with “A Night at the Apollo” through Sunday, April 17, at the Southern Theatre. Joined by singer Marva Hicks, the program will celebrate the music of Ella Fitzgerald, Gladys Knight, James Brown, Sam Cooke and more. Tickets are $49-$41. Call (614) 294-5200.

Steffanie Leigh as Mary Poppins, Talon Ackerman as Michael Banks and Camille Mancuso as Jane Banks in the National Tour of Mary Poppins.

Three guesses what job

5 Steffanie Leigh was working when she got the lead role in the national tour of Mary Poppins. “I was definitely not as good a nanny as Mary Poppins,” Leigh told The Beat with a laugh. That bit of real-life coincidence is just a stage-setter for the magic of which Leigh gets to be a part on a nightly basis. “To be ‘practically perfect.’It’s fun to create those illusions,” Leigh said. Those illusions include, of course, flight, but also a plethora of items retrieved from her magic bag during the opening number, Practically Perfect. (Leigh refused to provide behind-the-scenes secrets for either.) She did, however, explain that the stage production storyline is not a mirror image of the 1964 film, as the creative team opted to adapt some of the same and some different vignettes from the book on which both are based. “It’s more of a character study of the family and their transformation,” Leigh explained. A family — the Bankses — which she

pretty amazing.” Leigh concurred, adding that longtime fan favorites like Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious and Jolly Holiday stand alongside new numbers composed for the stage show like the powerful Anything Can Happen. “But I really love singing Feed the Birds,” Leigh added. “It has such beautiful lyrics and melody. And, in our production it’s set in front of a beautiful backdrop of St. Paul’s Cathedral.” Both Mancuso and Leigh have seen the movie over and over, but more from a fan’s perspective than an actor’s. Leigh said that, while the stage show is different, the film’s popularity is nothing to run away from. “We embrace the fact that it’s well-known,” she explained. “I’ll never be Julie Andrews. But I love getting to play such a magical character, where you can just let your imagination go.”

helps transform. Her charges include Michael and Jane Banks, the latter of which is played by 11-year-old Camille Mancuso of Blacklick. “We start off being total brats and snobs,” Mancuso told The Beat. “Mary takes us on some crazy adventures and we realize we don’t have to be brats. We can just have fun.” And fun is had by all. Mancuso said the children are the busiest of all the cast members, but that it seems a fair trade to participate in all the rollicking, frolicking fun. “I get to spell Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious every day,” Mancuso said. “And getting to interact with all these great people For more from The Beat’s inon stage is a blast.

Turkish delights abound in Dublin strip mall Situated in present-day Turkey, the historic city of Ephesus was a major urban center, even during the high times of the ancient Greeks and the Roman Empire. Situated in a strip mall in Dublin, Cafe Ephesus brings to our area those potent traditions of lusty Turkish cooking at unbeatable values (big portions, great food and right-on prices). Cafe Ephesus adds to its cost-effective attractions by subtracting the adult beverage part from your bill: It doesn’t sell booze. And while the place isn’t fancy, it’s far from a drag to eat in its modern and pleasant facilities. In your ears will be rousing Turkish tunes and on the walls are a few framed, postcard-worthy photographs of watery scenes near the famous city. There are also a couple of colorful, hanging Turkish rugs, some pretty blue tiles along the back wall and a paneled, festive painting of a laid-out banquet positioned above the little semi-open kitchen.

by G.A. Benton Of course, it’s what’s on the dishes that counts, and that’s the most impressive aspect of Cafe Ephesus. A great way to begin exploring some of its bold Turkish flavors is with the Combination Plate of dips and salad-cold appetizers ($14, easily serves three). Arrayed like a dartboard, that killer veggie-heavy platter hit the bulls-eye of authenticity with Kisir, similar to tabbouli but more complex and crunchy, with nuts and a much higher bulgur-toparsley ratio; Ezme, like a fiery Turkish salsa; Haydari , a rich and thick yogurt dip brightened by dill and mint; Dolmasi, vegetarian grape leaves stuffed with cinnamon rice, pine nuts and currants; Barbunya Pilaki, a neat pinto bean, onion, potato and tomato salad; Soslu

Seekers of more aromatic food might pick the sausagey Adana kebabs ($12), also available in a nifty chicken version. Not into kebabs tonight? No problem, Ephesus has you covered with a seafood dish like an unusual, rich and terrific Tilapia ($13), baked with mushrooms, peppers, onions and plenty of cheese and sided with one of Ephesus’ great salads. But there are also other terrestrial triumphs, like wonderful cabbage rolls (Lahana Dolmasi, $12). Desserts lived up to Ephesus’ fantastic savory fare.

Probably the healthiest pancakes you’ll ever eat, they’re crispy yet springy and made with shredded veggies (mostly zucchini and potato) and come with a side of herbed yogurt dip.

Bakery gets cooking inside Chinese restaurant in Clintonville Ying’s Tea House & Yum-Yum has a sweet new partner. Ying Liu, owner of the Clintonville restaurant, and baker Elena Birukow have formed Yum-Yum Bakery, which now occupies a portion of the space at 4312 N. High St. Birukow’s creations run the gamut — from savory to sweet and touching all styles. Pastry cases are lined with cannoli, napoleons, Russian-style stuffed buns, fresh-baked breads, cinnamon rolls, muffins and other baked goods. Unconventional flavors are in order for doughnuts and cupcakes, she said. “I have many ideas,” she said. She is particularly known for her elaborate

wedding cakes. Birukow also takes special orders for desserts that are not part of the daily lineup. “Everything a bakery can do, I can do,” said the Moscow native. To make things convenient for the earlymorning crowd, the bakery opens at 7 a.m. every day. Liu, for her part, said she is bent on improving the coffee drinks and tea options. She soon will start importing loose-leaf teas from China. Birukow and Liu met through a mutual

They already have installed a sushi bar. Liem formerly was a sushi chef at Whole Foods. It’s a big change for the 2,100-square-foot space, known for its cafeteria-like austerity as well as duck and barbecued pork hanging on hooks behind the counter.

Hi, Zoo Kids. Here’s a picture of my friend Buddy. He’s a Hawksbill Sea Turtle here at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. Buddy was found along the Texas coast with injured flippers and can not be released back into the wild.

In the past 20 years, 75 sea turtles have lived at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium and have been released back into the wild. You can adopt hawksbill sea turtle at

Ohio Library Council

Executive director sees rest of state government just now catching up By KEVIN PARKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

When officials from state-funded departments, agencies, boards, etc. get together these days to commiserate with one another about looming budget cuts, public library representatives can say, “I’ve felt your pain.” While library funding is only to be cut a modest 5 percent in Gov. John Kasich’s proposed biennial budget, the executive director of the Ohio Library Council hastens to point out that comes on top of a 23-percent reduction in state funding since 2008 and a 30-percent cut over the past five years. “Everybody’s catching up with libraries now,” Douglas S. Evans said last week. Operating out offices off Schrock Road in the Northland area, the Ohio Library Council “is the statewide professional association which represents the interests of Ohio’s public libraries as well as their trustees, Friends and staffs,” according to the nonprofit’s website. Of the state’s 251 public libraries, 238 are members of the council, Evans said. The council’s annual operating budget is $1.2 million. “We run a pretty lean operation, but it’s not inexpensive to be an advocate with state government,” said Evans, who has been executive director for almost nine years. The council has 11 employees and represents the interests of only public libraries in Ohio, not school and academic ones as is typical in other states, according to Evans. Some organization in one form or another has represented public libraries in the Buckeye State back into the 19th century, he said. Up until the 1930s or ’40s, three different organizations looked after different aspects of library operations: the Ohio Library Trustees Association, Ohio Library Association and Ohio Friends of the Library Association. These eventually combined, although not entirely for some decades, Evans said. Up until the late 1990s, what had been three separate organizations continued to maintain separate boards of directors. The missions of those three entities included professional train-

‘Libraries are constantly changing’ Someone with no computer at home and not much more knowledge of how to use one is advised to apply for this or that form of state assistance. But the only way they can do that is … online. Where are they going to go? They’re going to head to the nearest library, and they’re going to find help there, according to Ohio Library Council executive director Douglas S. Evans. Once upon a time a “museum for books,” libraries have become much more, Evans said, and are on their way to becoming even more in response to social needs not being met by other public institutions. Evans cited examples around the state, many of them reflected by the Columbus Metropolitan Library, of the addition of homework and job help centers, tutoring programs, Internet access and ing as well as advocacy to maintain financial support for public libraries. “The end result is to serve the public libraries which ultimately serve the public,” Evans said. Library funding has undergone some major changes since 1985,

even ongoing assistance with starting a business. In Cleveland, library personnel help patrons handle the paperwork needed to obtain a passport. Increasingly, Evans said, public libraries are providing the conduit between the public and the government. “Libraries have become an extension of government/social services,” he said. For library officials, it’s a case of: If not us, who? “It really has become that situation,” Evans said. “The libraries have really assumed that role, regardless of whether anyone wants them to.” Library services, he said, are driven by community need and, increasingly, technology. Therefore, library services are continually evolving. “That need is constantly changing,” Evans said, “so libraries are constantly changing.” — Kevin Parks

according to Evans, up to and including the proposed 30-percent drop in state support Gov. Ted Strickland called for at 4 p.m. June 19, 2009 — obviously a memorable moment in his tenure. Up until 1985, public libraries received funding based on a per-

centage of the intangibles tax, the amount of investments held by residents of a given county, Evans said. This resulted in some stark inequities in funding between one part of the state and another, he noted. In 1985, that formula was re-

placed with the Library and Local Government Support fund, which came out of the state income tax. It was about the same amount of money as before, but included a system for equalization between the have and have-not sections of Ohio. Things went along pretty smoothly, and in fact Ohio was one of the models library officials in other states looked up to in terms of state funding support, up until that fateful afternoon in June 2009, according to Evans. The ax didn’t end up cutting quite as deeply as proposed by Strickland, and the Ohio Library Council executive director credited the vocal opposition of library officials, trustees, patrons and Friends organizations for that. “It was a tremendous effort on behalf of the libraries themselves to gear up their communities in response to the governor’s proposal,” Evans said. “It was tremendously overwhelming to see the public’s response to the governor’s proposal. “We did not go out to the public and tell them what to say. We

put the word out. The word that came back to the legislature, to the governor, was the public’s own word: They valued the public libraries.” In the majority other states, libraries are supported almost entirely by local funding, and access to them is limited to those who pay, according to Evans. The city or county owns and runs the libraries. In Ohio, state money supports libraries, which are controlled by local boards answerable to their patrons, he said. This distinction, Evans said, was brought home to him when, two weeks after becoming executive director of the Ohio Library Council, he attended a national conference. “So you’re the one who got the plum job in Ohio,” counterpart after counterpart commented to him, Evans recalled. State funding “has created a level of library service statewide that is unmatched throughout the country,” Evans said. Needless to say, we’re very proud of that. “It is still by far the best in the country.”

Financial finesse

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 of each paycheck 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. AdditionalJORDAN ly, through online banking, MILLER III 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.

Jerome boys hang on for 1st state title By JARROD ULREY ThisWeek Community Newspapers Two months ago, Dublin Jerome High School senior Leo Shea decided the best way to help his team at this year’s state boys fencing championships was to switch from competing in the foil event to competing in epee. The points he scored by placing 10th in the junior (U19) men’s epee last weekend at the Steelwood Fencing Center in Columbus provided the kind of contribution necessary to help the Celtics capture their first state championship. Shea, who made it to the “Table of 16” round in epee, helped Jerome finish with 112 points. Upper Arlington (103) and Dublin Coffman (98) followed among the six schools that posted team scores. In the girls competition, Rocky River finished first and UA was second. “It’s Jerome’s first-ever state championship. It’s been long awaited and I’m very, very pleased,” coach Simon Birkhoff said. According to Birkhoff, the Celtics had a 38-point lead after the first day of competi-

tion April 9 and struggled April 10 but managed to hold off UA and Coffman. Jerome freshman Noah Myers tied for third in the junior (U19) men’s saber. Also for the Celtics, Kirklen Thomas Shedlock placed sixth in saber and 10th in junior (U19) men’s foil, Matthew Wiese was fifth in foil, Garrett Turley was sixth in foil and Ben Crawford was eighth in foil. Bexley’s Aaron Hutchison won the foil competition, beating Dayton Chaminade Julienne’s Edmund Gehres 15-9 for the championship. Also placing among the top 10 in epee were UA’s Nick Mohr (sixth) and Rohit Menon (seventh). In foil, Columbus’ Eugenio Bonello (third) and Rostislav Tesler (ninth) and Coffman’s Sriram Durvasula (seventh) were top-10 finishers. Columbus’ Robbie Foley (second), UA’s Derek Hessler (tied for third), Chanhee J. Ha (seventh) and Max Whitmeyer (10th) and Coffman’s Daniel Smith (fifth) all placed in the top 10 in saber. “I was hoping (Jerome and Coffman) would go one-two. We didn’t, but it was really close,” Birkhoff said. “It was kind of a

rough morning (April 10) after (Jerome) had a big lead after the first day. Noah Myers is a first-year fencer who used to do Eastern martial arts, so him taking third is really quite impressive.” •Columbus School for Girls junior Taylor McIntyre earned her third consecutive state title in the women’s foil competition. McIntyre, a Gahanna resident who also competes for the CSG track and field team, beat Columbus Academy’s Abigail Kaye 154 in the championship match. After receiving a first-round bye, she beat Rocky River’s Alexis Burnley 15-0 and Rocky River’s Mary Burns 15-5 to advance to the final. Coffman’s Eleni Christofides tied for third and UA’s Megan Arnling (ninth) and Isabel Randolph (10th) also placed in foil. “Third time’s the charm,” McIntyre said. “Hopefully I’ll (win) all four years.” McIntyre began fencing as a 10-year-old after seeing a fencing exposition at Easton. She won the Division II Summer National Championships in July 2009 in Grapevine, Texas, and said that over the See FENCING, page D3

Walsh has edge at QB for Coffman By JARROD ULREY ThisWeek Community Newspapers

By Eric George/ThisWeek

Ryan Borcherding, who has scored five goals in a game and four in two others this season, has seen increased time on the attack for Coffman.


Coffman senior steps up attack By JARROD ULREY ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Dublin Coffman High School boys lacrosse coach Mark Forsythe remembers the first time he noticed senior Ryan Borcherding. That was in 2009, and Forsythe was coaching Olentangy Liberty as Borcherding helped lead the Shamrocks to a 12-11 victory over the Patriots in the first round of the Division I, Region 1 tournament. “I watched the tape from that game three or four times because it was our last game of the season,” Forsythe said. “He’s a great player. He’s big and he’s lefthanded. He shoots the ball so well and is so valuable on every possession.” Since taking over as Coffman’s coach a year ago, Forsythe

Followers of central Ohio high school football likely will be watching with curiosity to see what the area’s finest quarterback factory will produce next. Since Mark Crabtree took over as Dublin Coffman’s coach in 2001, the list of signal callers the program has generated includes former Notre Dame standout and current Denver Broncos backup Brady Quinn as well as college recruits such as Jack Rafferty (Otterbein) and Zack Stoudt (Mississippi). Senior Cole Stoudt, who started most of the past three seasons, was the latest to sign to play collegiately when he committed to Clemson in February. While Cole Stoudt might have been the most obvious loss for a Coffman team that went 8-3 overall last fall, it isn’t a mystery to Crabtree who will be team’s next quarterback. “James Walsh was our backup, and right now we’re going into the season with him as our starter,” Crabtree said of the sophomore, who also is a key player for the Shamrocks’baseball team. “He played some as a freshman and a lot as a sophomore, so we feel good about where we’re going with him. We do want to put him in a situation where he can succeed.” See FOOTBALL, page D2

OHSAA votes down spring football practice Girls soccer expanding to three divisions next season By JARROD ULREY ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The OHSAA sparked emotion in more than one direction April 7 when it denied a proposal from the Ohio High School Football Coaches Association to allow a two-week period of skill instruction in May. According to the official OHSFCA release that has been posted online by several news outlets, including, the proposal asked for two weeks of football instruction during the final two weeks of May. The timeframe for the workouts would have been a maximum of 10 hours and would not have exceeded more than two hours per workout. Also as part of the proposal, athletes participating in an OHSAA spring sport would have been required to complete

their season before participating in the football workouts. For spring sport coaches such as A.J. Auld of the Dublin Jerome High School boys lacrosse program, the OHSAA’s unanimous rejection relieves the continuing pressure for prep athletes to specialize. “I encourage my guys to be multisport athletes because it’s good for a number of reasons,” Auld said. “I know the OHSAA promotes all sports and not just football. If they approved this, why would they just allow one sport to be able to do that? Why wouldn’t they allow basketball to do it? I have a good relationship with the football coach at Jerome, and us sharing players has been mutually beneficial. I know I can’t simulate the intensity (during a practice) that one of my players can have going up against one of their rivals on a Friday night, and the same is true in the other direction.” For others such as Brookhaven’s Steve Ayers, the OHSAA’s decision to deny the proposal was “kind of disappointing.” In its official release, the OHSAA cited “concerns over the impact it would have on other spring sports, as well as the requests that would come from

other sports.” The OHSAA indicated, however, that it is examining the possibility of expanding the 10 days of coaching currently permitted over the summer in all team sports. Some of the nation’s most recruited football states, including California, Florida and Texas, are among those that have some format that includes spring football practice. “We really don’t get that many days in the summer,” said Ayers, who is an assistant football coach with the Bearcats and the school’s head coach for wrestling and boys track and field. “Down south they all have spring football, and as a state it kind of puts us behind. It seems like another thing to hold us back. We kind of felt good that they were thinking about it. When coaches collaborate, they can work it out.” Among the reasons the OHSFCA created the proposal was a concern regarding AAU flag football programs and their influence on OHSAA-sponsored football. In addition, it cited a lack of opportunity for Ohio high school football players to display their skills to college coaches during the May recruit-

ing period. “I know a lot of people might be against it, but obviously I’m a football coach and I’m also a football fan,” Dublin Coffman football coach Mark Crabtree said. “Anything that can be done to promote the sport of football I’m in favor of doing. During the last two weeks of May, most of our players are doing absolutely nothing unless they’re competing in a regional tournament in their spring sport, and those are the kinds of athletes that we’d want to be competing at that time. “Football is the one sport that gets the short end of the stick because all of the other sports you can do year-round in some form. We’re limited the most, yet it’s the biggest sport with fans and them being fanatical about it.” •The OHSAA voted 6-3 to approve a proposal from the soccer coaches association to expand the girls soccer state tournament from two divisions to three beginning this fall. Girls soccer surpassed the 501-team benchmark during 2010. Twenty-three teams from the Central District competed in Division II last fall, producing one district champion. Although the OHSAA has not an-

nounced breakdowns by division, teams such as Worthington Christian (116 girls) and Wellington (77 girls) likely would be among those that would drop to Division III. Worthington Christian was seeded third for the district tournament and Wellington was seeded eighth last fall. “That gives us a better chance once we get into the tournament,” Worthington Christian athletics director Kevin Weakley said of his team’s likely drop. “The challenge in Division II is that there are a lot bigger schools than us in it like Bexley and Hartley. When we made the jump to Division III with the boys, it helped us significantly.” Another effect of the increase in divisions is that schools such as DeSales and Watterson as well as some Columbus City Schools would drop from Division I to II. DeSales and Watterson have been perennial powers in boys soccer while competing in Division II, but neither school got past the district semifinal round while competing in Division I in girls soccer last fall.

The Shamrocks lost to South 28-14 in a Division I, Region 3 quarterfinal. It was an experience that Crabtree believes his players and coaching staff learned from. “Obviously looking back, there are some things that we’d like to do over again,” Crabtree said. “One thing I can’t fault is that all of the players gave great effort. With our departing seniors, maybe there could have been a player or two that we could have done something different with and emphasize him in a different area, but they all gave great effort.”

Junior Kris Simonton of the Dublin Scioto High School baseball team fondly recalls his first appearance in the Dublin Classic. His freshman season, Simonton was the winning pitcher in a 5-4 victory over Dublin Coffman. It was his first varsity win. The three Dublin programs will get together again for the Dublin Classic on Saturday, April 16, at Scioto. Coffman and Scioto will play at 10 a.m., followed by Coffman and Dublin Jerome at 12:30 p.m. and Jerome and Scioto at 3 p.m. The competition will feature players from all three teams who once were teammates on the Dublin Green Sox in the Dublin Youth Association’s travel baseball program, whose highest level is a 14-and-under team. Among the former Green Sox players are Simonton and Jerome junior Aaron Huesman. “We talk a lot,” Huesman said of his former Green Sox teammates. “We play summer ball together. We’ll be chirping a little bit. We’ll talk smack a little bit. We’re all excited for (the Dublin Classic). It’s one thing that we really look forward to during the year.” “It’s always a great event where all three Dublin schools can come and play each other, and like me knowing (players on Coffman and Jerome), being able to play against those guys and then afterward kidding around with them,” Simonton said. “It’s just a great environment where three great programs can come and play together and see who comes out on top.” For Coffman senior Adam Hall, who has signed to play baseball at Xavier University, the event gives him another chance to face one of his former Green Sox teammates in Jerome senior Michael Parente. “We really look forward to playing these two games,” Hall said.

“It’s another game that we want to have on our record as wins, but other than that, it’s just real fun games.” The event has extra meaning for Jerome coach Chris Huesman, who has coached in the Coffman and Scioto programs. Huesman was the freshman coach at Coffman in 1991, an assistant coach at Scioto from 200003 and an assistant coach at Coffman in 2004 before taking over the Celtics’program in the fall of 2004 when the school opened. “It’s always fun to play those guys, especially for the kids since they know one another,” said coach Huesman, who considers Coffman coach Tim Saunders to be one of his mentors. “Coaching all those years here, I’ve seen those kids play against each other and come up through.

They know the other kids and parents better than the coaches do because they played with them through travel ball and different organizations throughout the years. A lot of those kids still talk to each other and hang out together, so that’s always a fun day. If we get good weather, it even makes it better.” Last season, Jerome defeated Coffman 7-5 and lost to Scioto 12-0 in five innings, and Coffman defeated Scioto 3-2. “It’s fun for the kids,” Scioto See BASEBALL, page D3

Improved defense lifts Shamrocks’ hopes By AARON BLANKENSHIP ThisWeek Community Newspapers

By Eric George/ThisWeek

Coffman’s Kayla Whitehouse scores a run April 9 as Scioto catcher Katie Pezzot takes the throw during their non-league game, which the Shamrocks won 9-1.

Dublin Coffman High School softball coach Kevin Finan was disgusted with the way his team played defense in its first two games, as it had seven errors during a 12-5 loss to Thomas Worthington on March 28 and 10 errors in a 16-6 loss to Hartley on April 1. But after the Shamrocks averaged only one error over their next five games, Finan said he’s confident they will turn their season around in the near future. “We looked like the Bad News Bears early on, but we’ve been playing good defense ever since,” Finan said. “I’m not OK with having a 2-5 start, but at least we haven’t been giving games away like when we played such pitiful defense in those first two games. Now that we’ve fixed our defense, I’m confident that we’ll get back to .500 again.” After batting only .251 as a team last year, the Shamrocks

Irish struggling to sustain early advantages By KURTIS ADAMS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Dublin Scioto High School softball team has been far more competitive than its record might indicate. The Irish had the lead in four early losses, including both games of a season-opening doubleheader April 2 at Upper Arlington. Stephanie Turner homered in each game for the Golden Bears, but Scioto led the first game 2-0 and also was up 1-0 in the second one before falling 12-4 and 13-1 in five innings, respectively. That seems to have set a tone the Irish are trying to reverse. Scioto carried a 4-0 advantage into the bottom of the fourth of a 14-4, six-inning loss April 8 at Westerville North. That was the team’s third run-rule loss, which also included an 11-1 setback in five innings against Olentangy in an OCC-Cardinal Division game April 7. A day earlier, the Irish squandered a 3-2 lead and lost to Westerville South 12-7 in the league opener. “We’re striking first (offensively), and that’s always a good thing,” coach Greg Menssen said after a 9-1 home loss to Dublin Coffman on April 9, the team’s sixth game in eight days to start the season. “We just have to find a way to keep things from getting away from us.” The Irish equaled its seasonhigh with nine hits against Coffman, but a slew of stranded base runners pointed to a lack of timely hits. Scioto also had nine hits against South. “Today we were missing some kids, our seniors in particular who were taking the ACTs,” Menssen said after the Coffman game. “We’re a little banged up, too. We’ve had some injuries to deal with. And our situational hitting

Continued from page D2 coach Patrick Elias said. “Of course, we want to win. It’s important for us to put on a good showing here. With Jerome, we have to play them two other times in the (OCC-Cardinal Division). They are a more familiar opponent. Coffman is kind of the backyard rival, plus we only get a chance to see them once outside of the tournament, so it’s a little bit of a different feel between the two teams. We want to win them both, absolutely.” Jerome and Scioto will meet in OCC-Cardinal play on April 29 at Jerome and May 2 at Scioto. The Celtics and Irish split their league games last year, with Jerome winning 13-3 in six innings and Scioto counting its win in the Dublin Classic as a league game after their other league matchup was rained out the day before. Jerome and Coffman met again in 2010 during the postseason, with the Celtics winning 1-0 in a Division I district semifinal.

They’ve been among the team’s offensive catalysts so far as Scioto’s schedule has included several top central Ohio teams, including defending OCC-Central champion UA.

Boys Tennis

Celtics look to build on win over Liberty By AARON BLANKENSHIP

At a glance

ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Dublin Jerome High School boys tennis coach Aaron Bauer figured his team’s OCC-Cardinal Division match against Olentangy Liberty would be decided by a 3-2 score after Liberty coach Steve Sisko moved first singles player Mitch Lothes to first doubles in an effort to ensure a victory on that court. Thus, Bauer was pleasantly surprised to watch his squad earn a 5-0 victory over the Patriots, who had beaten the Celtics 3-2 last year. Sean Stein defeated Alexander Hathaway 6-0, 6-0 at first singles, Kent Seitz beat Vick Chhabria 6-1, 6-1 at second singles, Frank Kuo defeated Matt Wong 6-2, 6-3 at third singles, Alex Hessler and Jarden Judson beat Lothes and Kevin Pang 63, 6-4 at first doubles, and Alex Fry and Cam Sheley rallied to defeat Shashank Sirivolu and Kyle Flahive 1-6, 7-6, 6-3 at second doubles. “When I saw their lineup, I thought it was going to be another tough match,” Bauer said. “I think it was a smart move on Steve’s part to move Lothes from singles, because that gave them a better chance to win at first doubles, and they were probably thinking they had a shot at winning third singles and second doubles, too. But we played great on every court to pick up a big win.” Bauer considered Liberty to be Jerome’s toughest opponent in the OCC-Cardinal, but he said it’s crucial that his squad maintains its focus and continues to win league matches by 5-0 scores to build a big lead in team points heading into the OCC-Cardinal tournament, which will be held on May 7 at Olentangy. Last season, Jerome went 6-1 in league duals and scored 77

points to win its first OCC-Cardinal title, edging runner-up Liberty (7-0, 76). “Liberty is probably going to be the best team we play in our league this year, but the trick is to sustain our lead over them by not losing on many courts between now and the start of the league tournament,” Bauer said. Bauer has been especially pleased with the way Kuo and his first-doubles team have played, as they both were 3-0 through three matches. “Frank has been doing a real nice job at third singles after playing mostly doubles the past two years,” Bauer said. Stein has been impressed with how well Seitz, who also started 3-0, has played after being limited during the offseason because of a back injury. “Kent just came back from a stress fracture in his back and

he’s been stepping it up and playing really good tennis,” Stein said. •Coffman coach Brett Hundertpfund said his players are performing well across the board. Through five matches, Hiromi Nakayama was 4-1 at first singles, with his only setback being a 6-2, 6-1 loss to defending Division II state champion Chris Diaz of Watterson on April 8. Jack Buchan was 4-1 at third singles, Leon Cai was 3-2 at second singles, and Di Wang and Sam Dinnin were 3-2 at second doubles. “Hiromi’s played really good tennis against top-notch competition,” Hundertpfund said. “Our singles players have been very competitive and we’re playing well at doubles, too.” The Shamrocks were 2-0 in the OCC-Central before playing Thomas Worthington on April 12. They finished second in the

raju and Siddarth Machiraju were unable to compete in two matches at second doubles because of a conflict with their academic schedule, and Arjun Venkataraman, who has seen time at second doubles and third singles, missed a match because he was participating in a robotics competition. While there were several changes at third singles and second doubles, Sean Ferguson (first singles), Kirushanth Ravindran (second singles), and Ben Albert and Jeff Lam (first doubles) all were 3-1 through four matches. “We’ve had to use a roundrobin lineup, but I’m happy because everyone has played well,”

Wrigley said. Scioto, which opened OCCCardinal play with a 5-0 win over Westerville South on April 5, plays a key league match on Thursday, April 14, at Westerville Central. The Irish lost to Central 3-2 last year en route to finishing fourth (4-3, 42) in the OCC-Cardinal standings behind the thirdplace Warhawks (5-2, 49). Central is led by Luke Buchanan (first singles) and Blake Byrns (second singles). “If Craig is healthy by then, I believe we’ll have everyone available for that match,” Wrigley said. “Central still has Buchanan and Byrns, so they’re going to be a good team. It won’t be easy to win three courts against them, because they have good players at every court.”

Close losses are not getting best of Celtics By FRANK DiRENNA ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Although her team lacks victories, Dublin Jerome High School softball coach Sarah Looker said the Celtics don’t lack confidence. After winning its opener against Franklin Heights 3-2 on March 28, Jerome lost five consecutive games, although all were competitive. Three of the five losses were by one run and another was by two runs. “We’re just going to keep pushing and keep pushing and keep pushing. That’s all you can do,” Looker said. “The girls keep coming out here. They have the confidence. They know how to do it. If they didn’t know how to do it, we wouldn’t have taken New Albany 13 innings and we wouldn’t have taken (Westerville) North eight innings, and we wouldn’t have lost a couple other games (to Olentangy Liberty and St. Marys Memorial) by one run.” Against Franklin Heights, the Celtics scored twice in the bottom of the seventh to erase a 21 deficit. Jerome was swept in a doubleheader April 2, losing to New Albany 9-7 and St. Marys Memorial 2-1. Jerome opened OCC-Cardinal Division play on April 6, losing to Liberty 6-5. Junior pitcher Kelsey Ciminillo was the loser in a 1-0 loss to North on April 7. Looker called the setback “a heartbreaker.” On April 8, Westerville South led Jerome 2-0 in the seventh inning before scoring four runs in the top of the seventh for a 6-0 win. Ciminillo pitched the first six innings, with freshman Abby Haab pitching the seventh. The Celtics managed only two hits

overall and 1-13 in the OCC-Cardinal. Looker and her team expect to improve on that OCC-Cardinal record. “It’s been such a difference from last year,” junior first baseman/outfielder Madison Mercker said. “We’re starting to hit. We’re getting our base runners on. We have a solid defense. Missed opportunities have hurt us a little bit, but there’s no doubt in my mind that we’re going to be a really good team this year. “We just have to get it together in clutch situations and it will happen. We’ve been struggling a little bit with that, but as soon as we get that together, we’re going to be really good.” Mercker said stability in the program also is making a difference. Looker, the program’s third coach in eight seasons, is in her third season and wants to be at Jerome for a while. “This is a complete turnaround to where the program was and where we are and where we’re going,” Looker said. “Consistency helps. It definitely does.” Jerome resumes OCC-Cardinal play on Friday, April 15, at home against Dublin Scioto. Last season, the Irish defeated Jerome 6-1 and 4-1. The Celtics will play at Westerville Central on Monday, April 20, and play a rematch with North on Wednesday, April 20. Jerome’s lone OCC-Cardinal win last season came over North 4-3. “The division has now equaled out,” Looker said. “We’re all right there. A lot of teams didn’t anticipate Jerome to be there, but we’re there. The girls want to stay there.”

against South pitcher Leah Ross. Looker said Ciminillo and Haab have formed a solid tandem in the circle, and she expects to continue to utilize both pitchers. “We’ve been working together really well,” Haab said of the team. “We’re getting really close to winning. We’re really close off the field. We all get along really well and our off-the-field chemistry is going to help our on-thefield chemistry.” Although the team struggled offensively against South, Looker has been pleased with the Celtics’ offensive effort. Jerome had 43 hits through its first six games. Looker said that was a vast improvement from last sea- son when the team finished 3-21

Track & Field

Coffman boys eyeing title at home event By AARON BLANKENSHIP ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Dublin Coffman High School boys track and field team didn’t have a realistic chance to win its home Track and Field Classic over the past decade because the competition was too strong. The 16-team event, which will be held April 16 at Coffman, again will feature strong competition for the Shamrocks in Brunswick, Dublin Jerome, Dublin Scioto, Groveport, Hilliard Bradley, Hilliard Davidson, Lancaster, Mount Vernon, New Albany, Olentangy, Pickerington Central, Springfield, Thomas Worthington, Whetstone and Worthington Kilbourne. However, considering that the two teams that finished ahead of Coffman last year won’t be returning, coach Jim Ferguson said his squad has a legitimate chance to win its home meet for the first time. Centerville scored 85.5 points to win the 18-team Classic last year ahead of North Canton Hoover (69), Coffman (66), Davidson (64), ninth-place Jerome (33) and 15th-place Scioto (21). “The level of competition is still going to be very good, but we don’t have that one dominant team coming that we’ve always had in the past,” Ferguson said. “It’s more possible that we could contend for this championship than it’s been in the past, because we have a more balanced team and we don’t have as many holes to fill as we have in the past. But as we’ve seen, Hilliard Davidson has a very good team and they may be the team to beat this year.” Coffman finished second (122) in the eight-team Panther Invitational on April 8 at Hilliard Darby behind champion Davidson (144). Finishing first were Robbie Daulton, Zack Vollmer, Grant Onken and Mark Ruf in the dis-

tance medley relay (10 minutes, 55.91 seconds), Taylor Williams in the 100 meters (10.89) and Matt Freese, Chris Kennedy, Bilal Williamson and Williams in the 800 relay (1:30.06). “We’ve been more of a distance and middle distance team in the past, but we’ve shown that we have some sprint talent, too,” Ferguson said. “Taylor broke our school record in the 100, which is a nice accomplishment, especially this early in the season.” Jerome scored 30.5 points to finish sixth in the Panther Invitational. Graham Rossi scored 13.5 points for the Celtics. He won the 110 hurdles (15.75), finished fifth in the 300 hurdles (43.41) and tied for fifth in the high jump (5 feet, 8 inches). “We had good performances across the board,” coach Mike Aldrink said. “Graham had an

outstanding night and our young distance squad is doing well, too.” Aldrink isn’t placing overly high expectations on his squad heading into the Classic. “This was perfect running weather (on April 8) and a lot of kids are already getting close to their personal records,” Aldrink said. “We hope they can keep improving, but we don’t want them to peak too early. We need to keep motivating them to beat their own bests, but we can’t let them get down on themselves if they don’t match these times at Coffman, because the weather could be less favorable on that day.” •After his team finished eighth (40) in the Classic last season behind North Canton Hoover (121), Brunswick (103.5), New Albany (61), Scioto (54) and three other squads, Coffman girls coach Greg

LACROSSE Continued from page D1 is among the early standouts for the Shamrocks. Other standouts, according to Forsythe, include juniors Alex Chin (attacker), Scott Fannin (defender), Ken Kristan (midfielder) and Tyler Mack (defender). Sophomores Mark Guzik and Patrick Ruz also have been holding their own at close defense in their first extensive varsity action, Forsythe said. “We’re a pretty young team, and we’re still trying to get our chemistry together,” Borcherding said. “But we’re going to eventually be able to be a good team.” •The defending Division II state champion Jerome boys team is off to a strong start. Despite not having senior attacker Leo Horine to begin the season because of a hamstring injury, the Celtics opened OCCBuckeye Division play March 30 with an 8-6 win over Worthington Kilbourne. One of the early standouts, according to coach A.J. Auld,


At a glance has been junior Joe Bano, who is the team’s faceoff midfielder. Against the Wolves, Bano won five of six faceoffs by grabbing the ball himself or having junior Wes Faulkenberry pick up the loose ball. Bano also won 73 percent of his faceoffs during a 10-9 win over Cincinnati St. Xavier on April 2. “I was really proud of the way the guys stepped up with Leo out against Kilbourne,” Auld said. “Probably one of the biggest things for us has been the play of Joe Bano. He’s an all-around midfielder and faceoff guy who has controlled games for us.” The Celtics’ defense has lived up to expectations thus far. Faulkenberry is a long-stick midfielder who has verbally committed to Ohio State and is joined in the back by close defensemen Austin Duncan, John Horner and Chris Kendall. Horner is a senior who has signed with Towson University and Duncan has been sifting through several Division I offers. Faulkenberry, Duncan and

played very well and that game boosted our confidence.” The Shamrocks will get a shot at redemption when they play a league game April 20 at Central Crossing. “Central Crossing’s the best team we’ve played so far, but we were able to go nose-to-nose with them through six innings,” Finan said. “We had seven hits against Central Crossing’s pitcher (Savannah Dorsey) and their coach (Rona Dorsey) told me that no one has hit her that way all year. If we can keep things tight like that again, we may knock them off the next time. We just need a little more timely hitting in the rematch.”

play on the ground and our defense can make outs,” Finan said. “Linda pitched a masterful game against Central Crossing to keep the game at 6-5 at the end of six innings. They finally got to her with five hits and four runs in the top of the seventh inning, but Linda gave us a chance to win that game, which is all we can ask for.” After squandering a 4-3 lead in a 9-6 loss to Westland on April 7 to drop to 0-3 in the OCC-Central, the Shamrocks bounced back to defeat Dublin Scioto 9-1 on April 9. “We were pumped up because we didn’t want to lose to another team from Dublin,” designat- ed player Jen Carney said. “We

TRACK Continued from page D6 King said the Shamrocks could place much higher this year. “I think we’re capable of a topfive finish, because we’ve improved so much,” King said. “We could compete for the title if we loaded everyone into their best events to try to win it, but we’re not going to risk over-racing our kids to try to win a regular-season meet. We don’t want to burn people out now and sacrifice our chance for potential victories down the road in the OCC-Central and district meets ... so we’re going to have most of our kids run only one race and one relay.” Coffman finished second (118) in the eight-team Panther Invitational behind champion Hilliard Bradley (120). Finishing first for the Sham-

rocks were Rachel Weber, Stefanie Larsson, Clarissa Bons and Megan Collins in the distance medley relay (13:09.81), Beatrice Hannan in the 100 (12.47), Sara Johnson, Sydney Cohen, Rylee Axner and Kaylee Taylor in the 800 relay (1:51.28) and Bridgette Widmyer in the high jump (5-0). “We were hoping to score 90 points because we’re trying to avoid over-running people, so I’m happy that we scored well over that many points,” King said. “Beatrice had our best performance of the season in the 100. All of our relays ran well, especially our distance medley, and we had multiple scorers in all of the events.” Jerome’s girls team scored 62 points to place fourth in the Panther Invitational behind third-

place Davidson (111). Rebecca Rings won the 800 (2:18.33). Placing second for Jerome were Rings, Madeline Moulton, Brooke Boyle and Kaitlin Willette in the distance medley relay (13:10.82) and Amy Erdelsky in the 400 (1:02.76). “Rebecca Rings broke our school record in the 800 and our distance medley relay ran great,” coach Randi Beatty said. “We competed the way I knew we could.” Last year, Jerome finished last of 16 teams (5) in the Classic. “Our goal is to place higher than we did last year, and to keep building on what we’ve done so far,” senior Mary Kate Foley said.
