Five face off in city council primary


By GARY BUDZAK ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The five Republican candidates seeking three seats on Hilliard City Council in the May 3 primary all say they will work to attract more businesses to Hilliard if elected. Two incumbents, Albert Iosue and William Uttley, are up for re-election. Joining them in the race for the three council seats are challengers Joseph Erb, Nathan Painter and Cornell Robertson. In addition to Iosue and Uttley’s seats, a third vacancy was created after council member Tim Roberts chose not to seek re-election. Iosue was elected to city council four years ago and Uttley, who left council because of term limit restrictions, which have since been lifted, was appointed to fill a vacancy created by the resignation of Dan Nichter. All three seats are for four-year terms that would start Jan. 1, 2012. The candidates for council, in alphabetical order, are: • Joseph Erb, 28, vice president of government relations for Strategic Public Partners Group, has served as the senior legislative aide to the Speaker Pro Tempore of the Ohio House of Representatives for five years. Erb has lived in Hilliard for four years, has a degree in political science from Ohio State University, and is married. The couple is expecting their first child

Police investigating apparent suicide By GARY BUDZAK ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Authorities say a man whose Hilliard home was searched for child pornography early on April 12 committed suicide by shooting himself

three hours later in the Hilliard Police Department parking lot. John T. Callicotte, 46, of 4615 Edgewyn Ave., had a search warrant executed on his home shortly after 7 a.m. Tuesday, April 12, by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement

and Homeland Security. According to the warrant, the residence was searched for evidence of possession and/or receipt of child pornography. “We don’t have any record of him until this,” Hilliard Police Chief Doug Francis said.

He said video cameras had indicated that Callicotte pulled into the front of the lot at the Safety Services Building, 5171 Northwest Parkway, and sat in the lot for a period of time See POLICE, page A3

Community takes a Stivers opens new Hilliard office look at Big Darby Town Center plan By GARY BUDZAK

The impact of more housing — bringing with it more students — in the Hilliard and South-Western city school districts was one of the major concerns expressed about the Big Darby Town Center Master Plan at a public meeting April 5. Urban Design Associates, the design team in charge of the creation of the master plan representing a massive planned development on the West Side, presented the final plan to a

The Town Center is to be developed within the Big Darby Accord Watershed in western Franklin County. It encompasses the western portion of Prairie Township and a southwest portion of Brown Township. The mixed-use development plan calls for the building of single-family homes and apartments, townhomes, 300,000 square feet of retail space and a hotel.

Congressman Steve Stivers’ new Hilliard office is open for business. Stivers and a seven-member staff opened the 4,285-squarefoot office in the newest section of the former Hilliard police department building at 3790 Municipal Way last week. Stivers’ desk, books and mementos were placed in his personal office, and he was still arranging pictures on the walls as a tour was given of the facility on April 11. “This is the first time I’ve been in since it’s been done,” Stivers said from the conference room.

BIG DARBY TOWN CENTER PLAN Continued from page A1 the Hilliard City School District board of education, asked why the Hilliard and South-Western school districts were not included in the planning process. He said he is worried that the proposed residential development in the area will become a burden to both districts, as they will have to rely more and more on property taxes. “My concern is that there has been no thought in regard to the school districts,” Lambert said. “We will be relying on most of our funding now through residential property taxes.” The impact of new development on schools could be great, he said. Maggie Connor, of Urban Design Associates, said the question of the financial impact of development on the school district is a tough one to answer. She said that most of the new housing in the Hilliard school district would occur in the northern portion of the development, which means less impact for Hilliard schools. “This is a relevant point,” Connor said. “However, the residential will be light within the Hilliard school district with big lots. It is our hope that the commercial development will offset any residential development.” Hilliard City Schools District spokeswoman Amanda Morris said Lambert was speaking as an individual resident, which he is welcome to do, “but I don’t believe he was speaking on behalf of the district or the board.” Morris said school districts have no control over how areas are developed, but that commercial and residential development does have an impact on a district economically. “Commercial development provides a tax base without providing students, so there’s definitely a more positive economic impact,” Morris said. “Residential development provides more students, and the taxes from those homes generally are not enough to educate a student, although we’re excited people want to move here.” The purpose of the April 5 meeting was to gather public input before the four jurisdictions involved with the development plan vote on it. Those jurisdictions are Prairie and Brown townships, Franklin County and the city of Columbus. Connor said the Big Darby Town Center Master Plan is an extension of the work done on the Big Darby Accord. It is a plan that sets standards in place before development occurs in order to protect the highly sensitive Big Darby Creek environment. “Currently damage is being done from existing farm land that is degrading the stream,” Conner said. “Unchecked development has negative impacts, not only to the Big Darby but socially and economically as well. We see this as an opportunity to draw economic activity to the area.” Most of the higher density development will occur in Prairie Township, Connor said. There will be a mix of single-family homes, townhouses and mixed use in a main street configuration, she said. “We have set criteria for the type of development,” Connor said. “You have the opportunity to respond to the market at the time.” The timeline for the potential development is anticipated between 2015 and 2030. Before that happens, Connor said, several things will have to take place. The plan must first be approved by the four jurisdictions involved, she said. Next, it is expected to take at least two years for a process called landowner outreach. A Community Improvement Corporation would be formed in order to negotiate with landowners to agree to the town center plan. Once 1,000 acres are committed

to the plan, a second community authority will be created for the purpose of realizing the plan, Connor said. That organization would then solicit for a master developer. “Implementation is complicated,” Connor said “It is a strategy and will take a few years to get off the ground.” Challenges to implementation include getting sewer and water to the development. The Big Darby Accord allows the development to tie into Columbus water and sewer without annexation of land, she said. In order to bring sewer and water to the site, an 11,000-foot extension to the existing waterline will be needed. Cost of getting water is estimated at $13.7 million, she said. “Water and sewer has to be invested in first before development can occur,” Connor said. “How do we fund this?”

The city and the county are discussing funding options that include grant opportunities, contributions from developers and a sewer charge. Another challenge is multiple owners who may or may not want anything to do with the town center plan. James Schimmer, of the Franklin County Economic Development and Planning Department, said the plan presented that evening is not a fixed thing. It has to be malleable and have the ability to change as the economic climate changes. “Please continue to work with us as we evolve this plan,” Schimmer said. “This isn’t about us but future generations. It is really important to understand that this process does not end here tonight.” The plan is posted, along with a survey, on the Franklin County web page,

Stage says Schonhardt finished job for Grove City By PAUL COMSTOCK ThisWeek Community Newspapers Mayor Richard “Ike” Stage on April 11 announced that Donald J. Schonhardt & Associates Inc. completed all of the work it contracted to do with the city in 2006 and 2007. Stage on March 25 said he did not know if the work was completed. In his April 11 announcement, Stage said, “I met with Mr. Schonhardt and one of his associates to review the engagement letter, contract and resulting work. It is clear that Donald J. Schonhardt & Associates Inc. delivered exactly what their contract specified. We appreciate the services provided by Donald J. Schonhardt & Associates Inc. and I apologize for any misunderstanding this matter may have created. “On a matter of this importance I wanted to be certain that the professional services provided by the firm and other contractors during the period covered by the Internal Revenue Service notice were, in each case, completed,” Stage said. At the center of the issue was a $2,792 discrepancy in a city account in 2006. Donald J. Schonhardt told The Record his company was not hired to look at that account. Last month, Stage said it was. Schonhardt said his company provided two services to Grove City.

The first was to interview finance department personnel regarding the accounting and payroll functions as they operated at that time. “All we were asked to do was come in, talk to people in the finance department and document the procedures as they existed ... (and) write down what they told us,” Schonhardt said. He said his company also was asked to look at an investment account and found that gains and losses were not being recorded properly. His company was not asked to reconcile the errors, he said. “I’m tired of any implication my firm didn’t do what it was hired to do,” Schonhardt said April 8. On March 29, he said his office had all documentation to prove it did all it was asked to do. He also said Stage was “looking for a scapegoat (and) looking for problems elsewhere, when there are none.” The Internal Revenue Service notice mentioned in Stage’s announcement was issued to the city in December. It said the city owed about $685,905 in unpaid payroll withholding taxes, dating to 1999. Later, other missed payments were found. The city paid $752,179 of its debt in February. Since then, city officials determined that $235,311 in city funds is unaccounted for, and the missing money is the focus of the police investigation into the city’s tax debt.



POLICE INVESTIGATE Continued from page A1 but never exited the van. Police said the shooting occurred at 10:04 a.m. Francis said two women who had arrived to pick up an impounded car saw Callicotte in the van and alerted police. “Police and fire went out there, and that’s when we discovered the body,” Francis said. “The medics transported him, which is normal if there is some sign

of life.” Callicotte was pronounced dead on arrival at Riverside Methodist Hospital. Police immediately processed the scene, taking a gun and additional evidence from the van, which was hauled into the impound lot. The parking lot was closed for three hours, but traffic was not affected on Northwest Parkway. Francis said that although violence is not uncommon at a po-

lice station, “this is the first suicide we’ve had in our parking lot.” Hilliard City School District spokesperson Amanda Morris said 96 third-graders from Alton Darby Elementary School were visiting the nearby Northwest Franklin County Historical Society at the time of the shooting but were unaware of what had occurred.

Five face off in council primary Continued from page A1 later this month. “We need to bring jobs to our city,” Erb said. “We must tap into our community’s resources, reduce the barriers to growth and promote Hilliard as the place to do business in central Ohio. Spending is at an all-time high and our taxpayers cannot afford to foot the bill any longer. We must cut spending and attract new businesses so that we have the resources to pay for essential services.” Erb, who is seeking his first term on council, said his experience at the Statehouse will help him. “Hilliard is a great place to raise a family and I want to keep it that way,” Erb said. “I want to be able to fund our services and relieve the tax burden that is currently on the homeowner. New businesses will bring additional revenue into the city’s coffers without adding students into our schools.” • Albert Iosue, 42, is director of planning and programs for the Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio (SWACO), and has been on council since 2008 after serving on the Charter Review Commission in 2006-07. Iosue has lived in Hilliard for 15 years, has a degree in civil engineering from Ohio State, is married and has four children. “I have one goal for the city of Hilliard,” Iosue said. “That goal is to make Hilliard the best community in central Ohio. This can be accomplished by continuing to advance the following: Manage residential growth; grow the tax base by landing new, strong businesses; improve our roads and infrastructure; improve and add more recreational opportunities; continue the focus on public safety; and continue to build on Hilliard’s financial strength.” Iosue said he wants to continue to work hard for the citizens of Hilliard, which is why he’s seeking a second term. “I have worked hard to be fiscally responsible and to only spend taxpayer dollars where it will provide a benefit to the citizens,” Iosue said. “By continually approving a balanced budget based on realistic projections, the city has been able to continue to provide the necessary services our residents have come to expect. I will continue to identify and eliminate unnecessary spending to make sure each dollar is

Candidates Night set for April 20 Hilliard voters will have the chance to meet and have their questions answered by the five men running for Hilliard City Council at a Candidates Night at 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 20, in the Safety Services Building, 5181 Northwest Pkwy. The Hilliard Area Chamber of Commerce will sponsor the event. Libby Gierach, chamber president/CEO, said the Candidates Night is part of the chamber’s business advocacy role. “Knowing that the city council makes (legislation) that does affect local business, we believe that it’s incumbent upon the chamber to have a forum for the community to come and

ask questions and have them answered by the people who wish to lead our community,” Gierach said. With the assistance of a moderator, the candidates will be able to give an opening and a closing statement, and answer questions from those attending in a round-robin format. “The public writes down their questions on a card, we will collect them, and they go through a screening committee for redundancy and appropriateness,” Gierach said. “All five candidates will answer the same question in a time allotment.” The event should last an hour to 90 minutes, depending on how many questions are asked.

spent wisely to the benefit of the citizens.” • Nathan Painter, 33, is an attorney and president of Nathan D. Painter, LLC. Painter has lived in Hilliard for seven years (10 in the school district), has degrees in English and an MBA from OSU, and a law degree from Capital University. He is married and the couple’s first child is due in July. “The main issue facing Hilliard is the tax burden on its families,” Painter said. “On council, I will strive to lower the tax burden on families by identifying and attracting small business and other commercial development to Hilliard. This will broaden the tax base and hopefully relieve the pressure on families.” Painter, who currently serves on the Board of Zoning Appeals, is a former magistrate for Hilliard Mayor’s Court and Franklin County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney who worked on bringing the Hilliard Farm Market to Old Hilliard. “Local government needs to play the role of a catalyst,” Painter said. His goals are to: “First, identify, attract and retain small businesses and other commercial enterprises. Second, maintain and enhance city services without resorting to tax and fee increases. Third, make beautification and aesthetic improvements to the city. Fourth, maintain and potentially expand our parks and recreation opportunities. Fifth, work with local organizations to develop and enhance an environment for local arts and artists to thrive and bring community events to Hilliard to foster interaction between families and residents.” • Cornell Robertson, 40, Franklin County’s highway de-

sign engineer, says many of the projects he’s worked on in his 19 years have been in the Hilliard area. Robertson has lived in Hilliard for 18 years and has a degree in civil engineering from OSU. He is married and has three children. “The city of Hilliard is a great place to live and raise a family,” Robertson said. “However, we are beginning to get crowded in regard to residential developments. “I propose working with the other council members, the mayor, and the development department to attract high-end commercial developments with high-paying salaries for a larger tax base. We could attract such high-end commercial developments by creating a technology corridor, which would provide utilities and fiber optic lines in place prior to development for immediate use. “Britton Parkway north of Cemetery Road is a perfect candidate for a technology corridor with close proximity to downtown Hilliard and I-270.” Robertson said he has a lot of experience talking to residents and businesses through the engineer’s office, understands the need for balanced growth, and he wants Hilliard to maintain the vision the city has given on its website. “I would like to maintain the high level of basic services that we currently benefit from such as police, fire, trash pickup, chipper service, snow plowing of roadways, etc.,” Robertson said. “I would also like to provide additional jobs in Hilliard so our residents do not have to leave the city to go to work.” • William Uttley, 55, is a real estate appraiser who has spent 12 years on council and served four years on the planning and zon-

ing commission. Uttley has lived 54 years in Hilliard, is a Hilliard High School graduate who has a degree in business administration from OSU, and is married and has two grown children. “I truly enjoy serving our community and believe I have the experience and knowledge to help solve the difficult challenges ahead,” Uttley said. “Being a lifelong resident of Hilliard, I desire to see our community prosper and remain a desirable place to live.” Uttley said he has worked closely with three administrations in Hilliard, and is concerned with how to make city government more productive with less revenue. “Due to state budget cuts and other factors beyond our control, the city is forced to rely more exclusively on income tax collections as our key source of revenues,” Uttley said. “Attracting and retaining businesses which generate jobs and tax revenues is essential for the city of Hilliard. “There are a number of important projects, including improvements to our city gateways, enhanced recreational opportunities, redevelopment of Old Hilliard, and the retired rail corridor, to name a few, which can be accomplished with city support.”

Congressman Stivers opens new Hilliard office Continued from page A1 about 1,000 more square feet than we had in the old office.” The Republican congressman’s old office was at 1299 Olentangy River Road. “We’re geographically centered in the middle of the district now,” Stivers said. “It’s accessible to everybody. If you’re coming from the top of Union County, Richwood, it took you about 75 minutes, and now it takes 45.” Ohio’s 15th Congressional District consists of Union and Madison counties, as well as the downtown and western portions of Columbus, and the cities of Hilliard, Grandview Heights, Grove City, London, Marysville, Plain City and Upper Arlington. Stivers said he and Mayor Don Schonhardt had talked about moving the district’s offices to Hilliard during the 2008 election,

but then he lost in a recount to Mary Jo Kilroy. However, he told Schonhardt that if he did win the next time, he could enter into an agreement with a local government and wished to move the office to Hilliard. Stivers defeated Kilroy in the 2010 election, but couldn’t move right away. “The federal government doesn’t move as quickly as local government,” Stivers said. “I knew we couldn’t get things approved at the House Ethics Committee and at the House Administration Committee in time to open in January, so what I wanted to do was sign a short-term lease in my existing place, and get in by the beginning of April.” The city of Hilliard made some changes, like adding a wall to the building to accommodate Stivers’ needs. For example, the former HPD communications center of the building is now where some of Stivers’ aides will work and

greet visitors. The older part of the building will be razed in the future, Schonhardt said. “I think it shows that the federal government and local governments can work together to do things that work for taxpayers,” Stivers said. The lease will run from April 3, 2011, through Jan. 2, 2013. Stivers will pay the city $2,162.76 per month for leasing the space. Schonhardt said moving the office was a win-win for Stivers and Hilliard, thanks to the seven new jobs. Stivers said he will be in the Hilliard office one day a week on the average week when Congress is in session, as well as one week per month when he’s working in the district. The office is open from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. weekdays. For additional information, call (614) 771-4968.

Commentary & opinion Letter

Many provide aid to food pantry To the editor: On behalf of the Hilliard Community Welfare Council Food Pantry, I would like to thank the students and staff of Hilliard Weaver Middle School for the generous donation of $8,500 as a result of the very successful Empty Bowls event that was held on Feb. 23. A special thank you goes to Shannon Murlin for coordinating this event. We’d also like to thank the Hilliard businesses that donated time, products or money, along with members of the Hilliard community who attended the event and bid on live and silent auc-

tion items. The Hilliard Community Welfare Council operates the food pantry, assists with utilities, and provides food and toys to families at Christmas. The need in our community continues to increase and we could not continue to operate without the support of the generous residents of Hilliard. Debbie Smith Hilliard Community Welfare Council president

Schonhardt promotes Hilliard during business breakfast By GARY BUDZAK ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Hilliard is a place where dreams can become a reality, Mayor Don Schonhardt told hundreds of business people last week at a morning breakfast meeting in the Four Seasons Columbus. The meeting was a chance for business people to learn about other vendors who had exhibits set up in the space, have a cup of coffee or juice, and network. Several Hilliard City Council members were in attendance, as well as other local movers and shakers. After an hour, Schonhardt spoke briefly, using the meeting to invite businesses and people to Hilliard. “The city of Hilliard has

changed dramatically in the last decade,� Schonhardt said. “Many of you who have not been here for a while have seen the obvious changes to our community. I think one of the most important changes that we can talk about is how business-friendly the city of Hilliard has become.� Schonhardt said economic development director David Meeks “works diligently to reduce and eliminate as many barriers as we are able to make Hilliard a place that you can do business and build that dream of yours into a reality.� He said the Four Seasons was the dream of the late Jim Trueman, founder of Red Roof Inns and a long-time Hilliard resident. Trueman worked closely with

Bobby Rahal, co-owner of Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing, whose facility remains in Hilliard. “The city of Hilliard has made tremendous advances over the past several years, and we’re extremely proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish,� Schonhardt said. “But we’re also transforming Hilliard into the Hilliard of tomorrow, and we have a lot of technology industries that have elected to move their businesses here to the city of Hilliard. “We have Verizon, Star Dynamics, Micro Electronics — many of these names are familiar to you. And we also have many smaller businesses that are taking their dream and turning it into a reality in the city of Hilliard. “BMW Financial Group just

up the roadway, and this (past) week we have 80 of BMW’s top executives from 26 different countries visiting right here in the city of Hilliard. I think that just speaks volumes to what we are able to

provide for the businesses that locate here and the residents who call Hilliard home.� Schonhardt closed by thanking them for attending and urging them not to speed on Trueman

of a “Healthy Dog Fair.� Exhibitors will have information and advice for dog owners. There’s also a dog jog at 2:30 p.m. led by the Hilliard Police Department’s K-9 unit dog. Finally, on Monday, April 18, from 5:30 to 8 p.m., there will be an “Adult Health Fair� at the Y. Health issues concerning adults like high blood pressure, mammograms and prostate cancer will be addressed by a dozen vendors. “It’s a full weekend of stuff,� Cottrill said. “All this is dealing with healthy communities. The YMCA wants healthier individuals and stronger families. Most of the things we do (helps make) people healthier, active, be involved in activities. It’s all about improving the health and well-being of kids and families in our community. That’s why we do stuff.�

The Hilliard Area Garden Club’s fourth annual “Garden Affair� is that organization’s big event of the year, according to its president. “It started out with 15-20 people,� said Mike Walls. “Last year, we had around 75-80 people attend, and it’s picked up in interest.� The Garden Affair takes place from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 19, in the Hilliard Senior Center, 3800 Veterans Memorial Drive. Admission is free. There will be exhibits from Amity Abloom, Central Ohio Cactus & Succulent Society, Chadwick Arboretum, Columbus Garden Railway Society, Com Til, Ohio Department of Natural Resources, the Ohio Governor’s Residence and Heritage Garden, as well as other vendors. “It’s very cozy,� Walls said. “We don’t want it to be some national flower show type thing.� The event’s big draw is its guest speaker at 7 p.m. This year, it’s Scott Zanon, the author of “Desirable Trees for the Midwest.� On the book’s website, Zanon said he chaired the Scarlet Golf Course Restoration Committee at the Ohio State University Golf Club in 2003. Finding there were no guides listing desirable trees and possessing degrees from OSU in agronomy and horticulture, he wrote his own book on the subject.

“Desirable Trees� is subtitled “50 for the Home Landscape and Larger Properties.� But don’t expect Zanon to mention every tree. “We started advertising it as the 50, and then he (Zanon) goes, ‘I may only talk about 20 of them, because I’ve only got an hour.’� Walls said the club gets good speakers at their monthly meetings as well, such as Hilliard gardener and television personality Tom McNutt. “He goes, ‘I normally get $20,000 (per talk), but for you guys, I’d be glad to come over,� Walls said McNutt joked. The club also has a summer field trip (last year it was the Cranberry Bog at Buckeye Lake), an annual flower sale and potluck dinners at a member’s home during the growing season. The potluck is a favorite, offering the host a chance to show off. Walls said the club receives $2,000 each year from the city of Hilliard. “What we do is give all of it back in some sort of project every year in the city,� Walls said. The organization’s current project is a veteran’s memorial at the Municipal Park. New members are welcome, Walls said, and the garden club is unique. “We have an amazing number of men that are members,� Walls said. “I think I am the only man president of a garden club in the state of Ohio. One thing we do not do is flower arranging (unlike) a lot of the garden clubs around.�

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.


Cafe Ephesus 6720 Perimeter Loop Road, Dublin 614-798-8091 Web: Cuisine: Greek & Mediterranean Price: $$ ($10-$20 per person) Patio: No Hours: 11 a.m.-10 p.m. MondaySaturday, 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Sunday

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.

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

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.

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

Beacon Elementary Fun Fair scheduled Saturday afternoon By GARY BUDZAK ThisWeek Community Newspapers

There are two reasons why Beacon Elementary School holds a “Fun Fair” each year. “Most importantly, it’s just about getting our community together and having fun,” said Beacon principal Jane Leach. “Fun is the first thing. It is a fundraiser secondly.” The Fun Fair will take place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 16, at Beacon, 3600 Lacon Road. The fun will come in the form of carnival games, facepainting, bake sale, popcorn, hot dogs, a silent auction and a raffle for the students. For the raffle, faculty members donate items or experiences for the children, who will buy tickets. Leach, for example, has a cre-

projects it onto the screen or wall,” Leach said. “We have one per grade level, and we want to have one in each classroom,” she said. “Right now, they’re sharing, and teachers share well, but it could be used all day every day in every classroom if we had one.” Parents, teachers and even high school students volunteer at the Fun Fair, Leach said. Beacon students get the day off to have a fun day at their school. “I couldn’t tell you what we raise, but it’s a good time and a successful experience,” Leach said. “The fun that we’ll have on April 16 will support the educational growth of our children. When you can combine fun with supporting the instructional program, it’s wonderful.” For more information, call phone (614) 771-2256.

ative prize for Saturday’s Fun Fair. “The bobcat is our mascot, and I have a puppet, and he’s just wildly famous in our school,” Leach said. “One of the things (that students can win) is that they can have lunch with Mrs. Leach and Mr. Bobcat. Believe it or not, that’s popular.” For at least a decade, the Fun Fair has helped Beacon to purchase items to help educate its students. This year, the goal is “an ELMO in every classroom.” The ELMO is not to be confused with the Sesame Street character, although they share the same name. The company’s products include a “digital visual presenter.” “An ELMO is a piece of technology that teachers can put children’s writing or their math work directly on this machinery and it

OHSAA rejects spring football 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 multi-sport 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.”

Davidson coach Brian White knows weightlifting and conditioning are important for his team in the offseason and he doesn’t place much stock into the 7-on-7 passing drills during the summer. The Wildcats have to restock much of their offensive and defensive lines for next season.


’Cats have much riding on lines By FRANK DiRENNA ThisWeek Community Newspapers

At a glance

Hilliard Davidson High School football coach Brian White realizes the success of his program relies on a year-round commitment. That commitment has led to Division I state championships in 2006 and ’09, five OCC titles and four regional championships. Last season, the Wildcats finished 131, losing 28-14 to Huber Heights Wayne in a state semifinal. “Any team that considers themselves to be a program, it’s a year-round thing,” White said. “I don’t necessarily like it being that way. I’m sure there’s a lot of people out there that think we’re not letting kids be kids anymore, but in order for us to keep up with the (Dublin) Coffmans, the Upper Arlingtons, the Darbys

•Coach: Brian White, 13th season •2010 record: 13-1 overall, 7-0 (first) in OCCCentral Division •Final 2010 computer ranking: Second in Division I, Region 3

and schools like that, we have to do the same things they’re doing, and any school that is competing now at a high level is doing it for the most part 11 months out of the year.” Once the mandatory 30-day rest period after each season is complete, White said his players return to the weight room and their focus remains on lifting weights for most of the offseason.

“Our main goals in the offseason center around just commitment to the weight room,” he said. “We ask our kids if they can commit 90 days or take advantage of 90 opportunities to get in and train to make themselves better between the start of our lifting program in January all the way up to the first day of two-a-days. If we can get 90 days from a kid, we feel like they’re doing pretty good.” Though players must adhere to that 30day rest period, White said the coaching staff remains busy during that month, attending clinics and contacting collegiate coaches in an attempt to secure scholarships for players. While several programs participate in 7-on-7 drills during the summer, White said his program puts little emphasis on such drills since they stress more of a passing offense. The Wildcats’ offense centers around their ground game.

Davidson loses 18 seniors, including four of its five starters on the offensive line in Kyle Annis, Logan Backstrom, Michael Berg and David Montenaro. Expected to return is right tackle Jordan Weatherby. “We have a multitude of concerns,” White said. “We lose four out of five offensive linemen and that’s where the basis of our program starts offensively. We have a few more kids back on the defensive side of the ball than we do on the offensive side of the ball, but we also lose some great kids on the defensive side as well. “We have some holes to fill up front. That’s where, if we’re going to be any good at all, we have to be good up front and especially on offense with our offensive line.” See WILDCATS, page B3


Panthers seek new leaders who can step up fast By AARON BLANKENSHIP ThisWeek Community Newspapers

This offseason, the Hilliard Darby High School football team is in the process of trying to find suitable replacements for seven seniors who started on its spread option offense, including quarterback Matt Allen and four linemen, and four seniors who started on defense. Allen will be particularly difficult to replace, as he rushed for 655 yards and 16 touchdowns and passed for 590 yards and seven touchdowns and was named co-OCC-Central Division Player of the Year last fall. As a starting cornerback, Allen also was second-team all-district See OHSAA, page B2 in Division I.

48 athletes in the program. “Our seniors were great leaders both on and off the field, and that’s why we were able to win so many games with such a small team,” Santagata said. “We’ve got some good athletes in the younger classes who are going to move up and help fill the voids left behind by our seniors, but it’s so important that

we find new leaders and that we develop some good team chemistry before the start of next season.” Thirty days after the season ended with a 22-7 loss to Springfield in the first round of the Region 3 playoffs on Nov. 6, the Panthers began lifting weights and working on their conditioning for next season.

Santagata said the number of players who show up to those training sessions is sometimes pretty small because so many of his athletes are involved in winter and spring sports, but he doesn’t mind the low turnouts as long as his players are staying physically active. See PANTHERS, page B3

Bradley’s switches paying dividends By BRAD EMERINE ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Most of the components that helped the Hilliard Bradley High School softball team find success last season returned to the second-year program. But coach Kevin Moody made some changes anyway, and they appear to be working. The Jaguars won their first five games by a combined score of 4111. The biggest changes surround twotime all-state performer Kellie Roudabush. Hitting in the middle of the lineup last season, Roudabush batted .587, drove in 29 runs in the Jaguars’ 26 games and was named the Division II district Player of the Year. So Moody moved her to the leadoff spot. “We wanted to get her more at-bats because she’s such a great hitter,” Moody said. “She has responded by starting on

fire. And when the rest of the team sees her get on base, they loosen up.” Through five games, Roudabush was 14-for-17 (.823) with seven singles, three doubles, two triples and two home runs. She had scored 11 runs. The switch also showed that Moody had faith in the rest of the team, because he knew the move wouldn’t work if the middle of the lineup couldn’t produce RBI. Teams could pitch around Roudabush if her teammates couldn’t step up. “Our three, four and five hitters have really done their jobs,” he said. “Jordan Camp has 10 hits in the three-hole and although she’s primarily a slap-hitter, she has hit a few deep as well. Mickey Smith has been putting the ball in play and supplying timely hits at cleanup and freshman Abi Groseclose has really been strong with two triples and a home run in the fifth spot. Smith and Groseclose have 12 RBI combined.” Roudabush admits that the change

doesn’t seem natural to her yet. “It’s different, but you really only lead off once a game,” she said. “I need to be more patient. I just look at it as playing a different role. My job is to score runs, not bat them in. I think (Colleen O’Shea) is doing a nice job moving me around the bases and the middle of the order is doing their job. We’re scoring a lot of runs.”

“She works her butt off in the weight room and is just a dynamic player wherever you put her.” If the team was struggling in the circle, Roudabush would be called upon more often. But senior Tayler Young, an all-league pitcher last season, has again started strong and given Roudabush the opportunity to play shortstop. “Tayler has been in command,” Moody said. “I think moving the rubber (from 40) to 43 feet has made her much better. Her ball movement is fantastic. I’m really excited about the way she’s pitching and the way her ball is moving. Kellie has been stellar at shortstop as well.” If things continue to progress at this rate, the Jaguars could be looking at a second OCC-Capital Division championship and a deep postseason run.

Roudabush also has a different role in the field. After going 14-4 with a 1.33 ERA last season while pitching in twothirds of the team’s games and going 21-6 with a 0.45 ERA as a sophomore at Darby, she may do less pitching this season as she prepares to play infield at the University of Akron next year. “She is 3-0 with a 1.66 ERA and 24 strikeouts in 21 innings,” Moody said.

Darby struggling on offense By BRAD EMERINE ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Hilliard Darby High School softball team entered the season with high hopes because of the versatility of its athletes. But second-year coach Erin McClincy knew it would take some time to formulate a consistent lineup while seeing what the young Panthers could do. Now, injuries to pitcher Carole Allen and third baseman Mollie Obert have prompted changes. “Mollie Obert, one of our two seniors, has a finger issue that could keep her out a while,” McClincy said. “Carole Allen has a sprained MCL and we don’t know how long she’ll be out either. We’re still shuffling the lineup and checking up for our next plan of attack.” Allen pitched in three of her team’s four games before the injury. The good news for the Panthers is that freshman Savannah Pizzurro stepped in to pitch a three-hitter in a 2-1 victory over Marysville on April 9. “That was exciting to see Savannah pitch that well in her varsity debut,” McClincy said. “Hopefully that will give the girls some confidence and momentum heading into a big week for us with three league games.” Darby lost its first two league games to Worthington Kilbourne 4-0 on April 5 and Central Crossing 8-1 on April 6.

good speed. But you have to get on base to make it work and put the pressure on the defense.” Junior catcher Cheyenne Hamaker has been a bright spot for Darby. “She’s been doing her job at the plate and behind the plate for us,” McClincy said. “She’s hitting the ball, putting it in play, bunting and all the things a No. 2 hitter should do. She’s also calling the game behind the plate. She’s throwing out runners and is a wall back there. It’s a luxury to have a catcher who can do all those things. “I have all the confidence in her to call the pitches. As a former pitcher, I think it’s important for the pitcher and catcher to work together and trust one another.” McClincy also noted the defensive play of center fielder Tyler Kohli. Now, the Panthers hope to add timely hitting and a more efficient offense to the defense and pitching. “We’ll continue to work on things, but I think, especially with a young team, hitting is contagious,” McClincy said. “If one person can get on a roll, it certainly could lead us out of it as a team. Confidence is so vital to young players. In the meantime, maybe pitching and defense can keep us in games.”

thers scored just 16 runs in their first six games, with 10 of those coming in the first two games. “We’re struggling at the plate, definitely,” McClincy said. “Pitch selection is part of it. We just need to take what we’ve been doing in practice drills and put that into action during games. We should have an effective short game because we’ve got some hitters and

OHSAA Continued from page B1 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 recruiting 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 announced 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 Welling-

ton 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.

Hilliard Davidson High School softball coach Angelo Forte shook up his lineup and noticed immediate results. After losing three of their first four games, the Wildcats went 11 in their first two OCC-Central Division contests, beating Westland 6-0 on April 5 and losing to Central Crossing 3-0 on April 8. After losing both games of an April 2 doubleheader road trip to Cincinnati Glen Este 6-3 and Milford 11-1 in six innings, Forte moved catcher Zoe Allegretti and second baseman Tessa Kilgore to the outfield, sent freshman Alex Ashley behind the plate and placed freshman Lizzy Doby at second. “We have made some changes in our lineup to shore up our outfield,” Forte said. “Zoe is naturally an outfielder and Tess makes us stronger out there. (In Cincinnati) our outfield let us down.” Kilgore said the trip to Cincinnati was a wake-up call for the Wildcats. “(April 2) was a rough day and the team morale hit a low point early,” Kilgore said. “We’re not a cliquey team. Everyone has their role and we are more than just one person. “Our team morale is a lot better and this team plays better when it has a better attitude. We realize we’re all on the team for a reason and the older players have to take everyone under their wing and help them to get better.” Davidson managed to bounce back against Westland. “We really needed that (win),” Kilgore said. “That helped to light a fire under us.” “They are all big wins, but with the way we had played over the weekend, (Westland) was a good win for us,” Forte said. “It definitely helped. This was a light week for us and we had some good practices.” Workouts on April 6 and 7 helped the team mesh when it needed to make improvements. “We just keep practicing and we have a goal in mind like we do every year and that’s to make it to a district championship,” said Forte, whose team lost to top-seeded Grove City 1-0 in a Division I district final last season. “No one game in the regular season is a championship, so you just have to keep working

to get better.” The coaching staff turned to the seniors — Allegretti, Kilgore, shortstop Mallory Sodders and pitcher Sam Smith — for ideas. “The practices (April 6 and 7) went very smoothly and we learned a lot,” Kilgore said. “There are four (seniors) and we have to make sure everyone as a whole is stepping up. We have a lot of young faces and every game we get a little better, not only physically, but mentally.” Against Central Crossing, the Wildcats struck out 11 times against pitcher Savannah Dorsey. Kilgore had a triple and both Ashley and freshman Charlee Clark had singles. “I thought we had some good at-bats, though the stats didn’t show it,” Forte said. “I thought we were much more aggressive at the plate.” Davidson took last weekend off because of ACT testing on April 9. Scheduled to play five games this week, Forte compared it to the calm before a storm. “We’re getting ready for a long stretch run,” he said. “We have an unusual mix (on the team) because we have experience and we also have a lot of youth. (This) week will show us a lot.”

Darby athletes to compete in college Three members of the Hilliard Darby High School football team have made commitments to play college football in seniors Blake Clowes (Kentucky Christian), Matt Cyrus (Ohio Dominican) and Sufyan El-Geroushi (Urbana). Those players helped lead the Panthers to an 8-3 overall record and their second Division I, Region 3 playoff appearance last fall. As Darby’s center, Clowes was named first-team all-district and all-OCC-Central Division. Cyrus, a linebacker, was special

mention all-district and firstteam all-league. El-Geroushi, who played right guard on the offensive line, was second-team all-league. Clowes and Cyrus signed letters of intent Feb. 2, while ElGeroushi was scheduled to sign his letter during a ceremony in Darby’s main gym April 13. Other Darby athletes scheduled to sign during the ceremony were Korinne Culley (lacrosse, Grand Valley State), Seth Ervin (soccer, Findlay) and Olivia Mathews (volleyball, Seton Hill.)

Several of the Panthers’ sophomores appear ready to answer that challenge, as four started on defense and two others started on offense last season. Sophomore Caleb Day started at slotback and cornerback and was special mention alldistrict and second-team allleague on defense. Sophomore Chase Longwell started at strong safety and backed up Allen at quarterback and was special mention all-league on defense. Longwell, who rushed for 70 yards and one touchdown on 20 carries and was 2-for-2 passing for 28 yards and a touchdown, is the frontrunner to replace Allen at quarterback. Sophomore linebacker Cameron Kohl, who led the Panthers with 92 tackles, is expected to be a defensive leader

We’re looking to see who is going to emerge as leaders between now and the start of the season, because that’s going to be very important to our success in the future.”

Plenty of questions surround OCC-Central From staff reports Below are capsule looks at OCC-Central Division football teams. To read full offseason stories, including comments from all coaches, for each team as well as all teams throughout central Ohio over the coming weeks, visit the Spring Football Edition of Friday Night Live at

Central Crossing •Coach: Chris Harr, second season •2010 record: 2-8 overall, 16 (seventh) in OCC-Central Division •Final 2010 computer ranking: 27th in Division I, Region 3 •Outlook: As the Comets go through their first complete offseason under coach Chris Harr, enthusiasm likely never has been higher. Before Harr was hired last April 22, the Comets didn’t have a structured weight-room program. After last season’s struggles, it wasn’t necessarily the losing record that Harr wanted to change — it was his team’s physical stature. Since the Comets didn’t play in 2009 because of a school-district levy failure, many of the team’s regular players last season were in middle school the last time they played organized football. The Comets’ starting quarterback was sophomore Tory Clark. Former Ohio State and Dallas Cowboys running back Jamar Martin is in charge of the Comets’ offseason strength and conditioning program. As he handles that, Harr is working to bring two more coaches on staff. The Comets are in need of a freshman team coach and they also are looking to add another offensive coach.

Dublin Coffman •Coach: Mark Crabtree, 11th season •2010 record: 8-3 overall, 61 (second) in OCC-Central Division •Final 2010 computer ranking: Fifth in Division I, Region 3 •Outlook: 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 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. Coffman will be losing 33 players to graduation. With the quarterback vacancy already appearing to be filled by sopho-

It almost has become a rite of passage in recent years for either the Dublin Coffman or Hilliard Davidson high school football teams to still be playing during the third week of November. For the other six teams competing in the current alignment of the OCC-Central Division, the annual talent and success that those two programs have boasted have made for some rough Friday nights. In this installment, we're examining what Davidson and Coffman are doing to stay on top, and what the OCC-Central's other squads are doing to move up in the standings. What can the Wildcats do for an encore after winning state titles in 2006 and ’09 and being a state semifinalist last fall? Their task includes replacing six players from the 2010 graduating class who have committed to Division I colleges. Coffman will have a new quarterback next fall, but for several years the Shamrocks have shown a propensity to churn out players at that position. Can Hilliard Darby keep it going after having a bounce-back year last fall, or will a team that battled the injury bug last year like Upper Arlington or Worthington Kilbourne be able to get back on track? For Central Crossing, Thomas Worthington and Westland, building programs that have struggled in recent years is a task that each is continuing to take on. Next week, we take a look at the teams in the OCC-Cardinal.

more James Walsh, finding replacements for some of the other key positions is the Shamrocks’ biggest offseason project.

Thomas Worthington •Coach: Scott Gordon, fifth season •2010 record: 3-7 overall, 25 (sixth) in OCC-Central Division •Final 2010 computer ranking: 20th in Division I, Region 3 •Outlook: Under coach Scott Gordon, the Cardinals have adopted one- or two-word slogans that summarize all of the goals for the coming season. In 2011, the team might use the phrase “team speed,” and not just because of the new synthetic turf that will be installed at Dow Nelson Field next month. Nana Kyeremeh, a junior safety who anchored the secondary last season, turned heads when he ran a 40-yard time of 4.3 seconds at the McAllister Scouting Report developmental combine in Powell last month. As a result, he has been attracting interest from Division I college coaches, namely Akron and Toledo. Kyeremeh is one of several players who will lead a newlook offense in 2011. Last season, junior running back Eric Monfort missed the first six games with a separated shoulder before returning with a 222-yard performance in a 34-27 win over Westland on Oct. 8. The Cardinals won two of their four games with Monfort in the lineup. The biggest question mark this offseason for the Cardinals

is at quarterback. Gordon said as many as nine players will compete to replace senior John Chadwell, including Scott Brown, Austin Kaiser and Jeremy Nicklos.

Hilliard among clubs prepping for season By JARROD ULREY ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Westerville high school club girls rowing team got shut out in its bid to advance boats to the US Rowing Youth Nationals last June. The depth that the team has shown throughout the winter months in both its heavyweight 8 and lightweight 8 boats gives coach Trish Chase confidence that that scenario won’t play out again next month. Three members of Westerville’s heavyweight 8 boat and one from its lightweight 8 already have made commitments to compete in college, and there likely will be others signing from both boats in the coming weeks. Westerville opens its regatta schedule Saturday, April 16, as host to the Hoover Invitational on Hoover Reservoir. Thirty-five teams and more than 1,400 athletes competed in the event last year and bigger numbers are expected for this year’s meet, according to Chase. “We’re very optimistic about the upcoming season,” said Chase, who along with her husband, Matt Chase, are in their 16th seasons heading Westerville’s program. “With over 90 rowers on the team, we have very nice depth. The majority of the women’s heavyweight 8 are being highly recruited by Division I universities. The varsity lightweight women also look very competitive. Both squads have their eye on US Rowing Youth Nationals this year.” New Albany seniors Ashley Bauer (Ohio State) and Amanda Poll (Ohio State) and Westerville Central senior Anna Lind (Iowa) of the heavyweight 8 boat will row collegiately. Poll is the coxswain, while Bauer sits in the seventh seat and Lind is in the fourth seat. Also on the boat are senior Cara Linse (Olentangy Liberty), juniors Lindsey Brown (Upper Arlington), Victoria Langerwasser (Olentangy), Tatiana Lundstrom (Westerville North) and Boston Shields

(home school) and sophomore Jackie Huddle (New Albany). Westerville North senior Alex Sawatzki will be coxswain for the lightweight 8 and plans to sign with Ohio State. Also vying for spots on the boat are Westerville North seniors Alison Edwards, Emi Grandjean and Sarah Scott, Worthington Christian junior Liz Akin, Worthington Linworth Alternative junior Gracie Bachmann, Liberty sophomore Kaitlyn Cantrell, Westerville Central sophomores Grace Busick and Delaney West and New Albany freshman Kelsey Michely. The boys team’s lightweight 8 boat finished 10th (6 minutes, 13.985 seconds) and its heavyweight 8 boat was 19th (6:21.15) at Youth Nationals last June. Expected to compete on the heavyweight 8 boat are seniors Hunter LaCorgne (St. Charles), Jon Lucas (home school), Tyler Lucas (home school), Jeremy Sobiech (Westerville North)

and Mike Tarnapoll (New Albany), junior coxswain Taylor Gainey (Pickerington North), juniors Ben Leonard (home school) and Conor Moran (Big Walnut) and sophomore Josh Gould (home school). Tarnapoll has been accepted to Cornell and Sobiech will row for Jacksonville. The boys lightweight 8 boat will be comprised of seniors Matt Casper (home school), Grant Mohar (Olentangy) and

Matt Murdoch (DeSales), senior coxswain Kevin Heppner (Westerville North), juniors David Casper (home school), Danny Just (Westerville North) and Jon Weiss (New Albany) and sophomores Ryan Kesselring (Westerville South) and Patrick LaCorgne (St. Charles). “I’m excited with the coming spring,” Matt Chase said. “My varsity men worked hard through the winter, and we have early signs of it paying off.” •Dublin was represented at Youth Nationals last year by its girls lightweight 4, which placed 10th (7:50.592). This season, coach Gina Crooks believes her best boat might be its heavyweight 4 that features senior Kat Bauer, juniors Mikaela Duckworth, Olivia Gugliemotto and Sydney Casey and junior coxswain Sarah Asad. Each of those rowers also will be on the team’s heavyweight 8 boat along with junior Bailey Irelan and sophomore

Maddie Irelan. Sophomore Tess Cassidy is the team’s top lightweight rower, according to Crooks. “So far things are looking great,” said Crooks, who along with her husband, Jared Crooks, are in their third seasons as cocoaches. “We’ve had a huge turnout with our novice program. I believe we have three 8s of novices, and we only had one boat of novices in the fall. I think it’s just been because of word of mouth. We really have high hopes for our girls varsity 8 and all of our 4s.” Seniors Ben Cahalin and Griffin Fillman are lightweights who are serving as captains for the boys team. Senior Brady Basham is the team’s top heavyweight rower, according to Jared Crooks. “We’ve almost doubled our numbers (since last year), so it’s been pretty crazy,” Jared Crooks said. “We started off with one 8 and now we’ve basically got two 8s. We have

more numbers, but we also have a lot more athletes. I’m pretty excited about my lightweight 4 and my heavyweight 4 boats.” •The Hilliard girls club team has 11 competitors this spring, including five who came out for the sport for the first time. Back from last season are seniors Paige Holcomb and Morgan Staric, junior Samantha Schmucker and sophomore Erin Rose Shaeffer. Competing in novice boats likely will be juniors Danielle Johnson and Jessica Takos and freshmen Terri Boganwright, Courtney Duke, Alycia Ridgeley, Amanda Vaught and Chelsea Wheat. “We’ve been out all the days we’ve wanted, except for two,” second-year coach Jackie Ruetenik said. “They’ve been holding their own, so that was good to see.”

Did you know sea turtles lay their eggs on the beach? If you’re planning a beach vacation you can help Buddy’s family by leaving turtle nest alone and keeping the beach clean.

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

Why Invisalign?

Our Board Certified Physicians

Treatment costs about as much as regular braces.

Clinical Cardiology

Aligners are almost invisible - no one has to know you are straightening your teeth. Removable - you can eat, play sports and brush your teeth without the worry like metal braces. The very best care - we are nationally recognized for our Invisalign results.When it comes to your smile and dental care, experience matters! Healthier option - because Invisalign aligners can be removed, cleaning your teeth is much easier than traditional braces. Remove your aligners to eat, brush and floss as you normally would, then pop the aligners back in!

Junior recognized for his work ethic and sense of humor By Luke Bewley Hilliard Bradley’s student of the month for the month of April is junior Troy Kelleher. He is a leader in the classroom and on the track and cross country teams and is exceptional at both. He is admired by his peers and teachers for his positive attitude and sense of humour. English teacher Nicole Bagchi nominated him. She respects Kelleher for his work ethic. “Troy is an exceptional student with a great sense of humor! He is always prepared for class, always participates and always does his best,” she explained. “This is especially impressive because he is involved in several extracurricular activities but still finds the time to excel in his classes.” Science teacher Jenny Kieffer agreed. “Troy is a very easy going young man with a great sense of humor. He is quick to understand science concepts and asks good questions. Since he can solve complex problems so well, I think he would make a great engineer,” she said. Along with his teachers, his classmates and teammates are glad to have him around, such as Junior Michael McDunn. “Troy is a leader on our team and definitely keeps us laughing and together. He’s just an all-around great guy.” Junior Austin Alpeter agreed. He said, “He’s a funny guy and we definitely push each other in track and cross country, which is good.”

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. AddiJORDAN tionally, through online bankMILLER III ing, 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.
