Plans nearly complete for Y Walk Northland By KEVIN PARKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers Members of the North Side Health Advisory Committee met last week to finalize plans for their second major event. The Y Walk Northland Wellness and Media Fair set for Saturday, May 14, is basically a repeat of last fall’s Walk to the Y, with some tweaks based on les-

sons learned the first time around. For one thing, the season has been shifted so that participants aren’t being asked to tear themselves away from an Ohio State University football game. For another, instead of asking civic associations, church groups and others to form walking teams to arrive at the North YMCA at the same time, attendees will be invited to go on walks of varying lengths through the surround-

ing neighborhood. “I think we’re well on our way,” event committee chairwoman Dawn Patterson said at last week’s monthly meeting of the advisory panel. She reported that 17 exhibitors had signed on so far, but she expects that number will increase to easily equal the 30 or so health organizations and providers who had tables at the inaugural event on Oct. 2.

“A lot of things are coming together,” health advisory committee co-chairman Scott Dowling said. “We’re moving along pretty well,” chimed in co-chairwoman Sandy LaFollette. The May 14 walk, wellness and media fair at the North YMCA, 1640 Sandalwood Place, will take place, rain or shine, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The fair in the YMCA’s gymnasium

will feature a variety of free health screenings, free massages, free chiropractic screenings, health and fitness demonstrations and outdoor activities, weather permitting. Clowns will be on hand to entertain the children. “There will be multiple exhibitors who work in the Northland area to show you practically anything you would want See PLANS NEARLY, page A2

Symposium would tap into ‘passion’ By KEVIN PARKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers In his new role as vice president of the Northland Community Council, Emmanuel V. Remy said he believed he needed to pursue “due diligence” to get to know others who have taken on leadership roles in the area. In doing so, Remy reached out to a variety of church, business and community leaders, not all of whom are active in the NCC. He made a discovery: “People who live in the Northland area are passionate about it.” Remy, the current president of the Clinton Estates Civic Association, was elected to his NCC post in February. He said he can’t think of one person who wasn’t willing, if asked during these conversations, to share ideas for improving the Northland area, particularly in shoring up its image in other sectors of the city. “The question is, how do A closer look you do that?

Remy’s calling it “Northland 2062.” Many of the subdivisions and developments that make up the membership of the Northland Community Council date back around 50 years. “Getting a group of stakeholders together and going beyond the traditional activists who are involved with Northland Community Council and Alliance and NABA provides a new perspective,” Remy said. Current NCC president Dave Paul cautioned that it’s sometimes difficult to look even five years into the future with any degree of certainty. He called Remy’s proposed symposium “very ambitious,” and added that it is in many ways appropriate Dave Paul with the approaching 50th anniversary for so much of the Northland area. Remy envisions getting local pastors and business owners to participate in Northland 2062, as well as the people who are deeply involved in their civic associations and Block Watch organizations. “They want to provide input,” he said. “They have some opinions on these things.” But many say they are too busy to do so on an ongoing basis, Remy added. A specific event might be the right forum for getting these people to participate, he said. The symposium would be a “problem-solving, See SYMPOSIUM, page A5

Northland High School choir director Janelle Guirreri plays the piano as her students rehearse recently for the second annual “Duty, Honor, Country” concert.

‘Duty, Honor, Country’ concert returns May 12 By KEVIN PARKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

A concert of patriotic music intended to thank the men and women who serve their country in the military will return to Northland High School this year, in a greatly expanded format. Called “Duty, Honor, Country,” the musical tribute to members of the military will be held in the school’s auditorium on Thursday, May 12. That’s a week to the day earlier than the first “Duty, Honor, Country” salute, which was sponsored by the Military Veterans Education Foundation, Northland Community Council, U.S. Army Recruiting Command and the Casto Co. The May 12 concert, according to NHS director of vocal music Janelle Guirreri, will be a “multifaceted event honoring our veterans and recognizing the freedoms we are guaranteed as Americans.”

A closer look Called “Duty, Honor, Country,” the musical tribute to members of the military will be held in Northland High School’s auditorium on Thursday, May 12. There is a “preconcert,” running from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., to allow elementary school musicians to participate in the event. The high school portion of the concert is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. and will feature both the band and choir, sometimes together and sometimes separately, performing patriotic songs chosen because they reflect the three themes of duty, honor and country.

“In addition to that, we are using this opportunity to get our elementary schools involved and showcase their talents as well,” Guirreri wrote in an announcement of the event. The participation of the younger musicians came about at the suggestion of Northland High’s principal, Duane Bland. Guirreri said an interview that Bland approached her and C. Rick Eckler, NHS director of instrumental music, about finding ways in which they could in-

clude students from the various elementary schools that feed into Woodward Park Middle School, which, in turn, feeds into the high school. “We said, ‘Well, we have the perfect event,’ ” Guirreri recalled. The result will be what she called a “preconcert, for lack of a better term,” running from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. “All elementary groups will perform, including elementary bands,

Woodward Park jazz band, a hand chime choir, etc.,” according to the announcement. “This is a great opportunity for the elementary kids to play as part of a larger ensemble,” Guirreri said in an interview. During a “long intermission,” she said, audience members will have an opportunity to attend a school fair in the gymnasium “where all schools that feed into Northland High School will be featured at some booth. “They will have posters, artifacts and a rep from each school helping to showcase their building,” she added. The high school portion of the concert is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. and will feature both the band and choir, sometimes together and sometimes separately, performing patriotic songs chosen because they reflect the three themes of duty, honor and country, Guirreri said.

Graffiti: Problem in need of a community solution By KEVIN PARKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers Zachary M. Klein surveyed the people assembled in Columbus City Council chambers last week for a public hearing on the subject of graffiti. “Just looking around the room, you can tell this is a community problem, and it’s necessary that we have a community solution to it,” the chairman of the development committee said. Community members, many of them from Clin- Zachary M. tonville and the Northland area, Klein spoke at the hearing, which was convened by Klein and Councilwoman Michelle M. Mills, chairwoman of the safety committee. The residents were clear that graffiti is well beyond a problem. “It’s an act of vandalism and breeds crime,” said Dave Southan, the Clintonville Area Commission’s

safety liaison. “Graffiti degrades our neighborhoods, reduces our property values and encourages other criminal activity,” Northland Community Council president Dave Paul said, reading from a letter the full council approved on April 5. “Graffiti has come to Columbus like the plague,” CAC District 3 representative James R. Blazer II said, adding that tags serve as a “welcome mat for future crimes.” “Before it’s too late, let’s take back the city,” Blazer said. “I’m sad to say, we’re losing this war,” com-

mented Ian MacConnell of the University Area Commission. The biggest problem facing anti-graffiti crusaders in the Northland area and across the city, NCC graphics task force coordinator William Logan said, is that they are powerless to do anything about graffiti on private property without the cooperation of the owner. The NCC’s letter supports Klein’s concept of requiring the owners of occupied structures, businesses or private dwellings to remove graffiti within 30 days of being notified by code enforcement officials. The missive also calls for mandatory sentencing for repeat offenders. City law addresses only vacant structures when it comes to requiring the removal of graffiti, code enforcement administrator Dana Rose said. The code is silent when it comes to occupied structures, he added. “I think everybody recognizes that all the big cities across the country do have a problem with graffiti,” Rose said in his opening remarks.

The media fair, also in the gymnasium, is a fundraiser for the North Y Service Club. Items for sale will include books, DVDs, CDs and videos. The Y Walk Northland Wellness and Media Fair is sponsored by the North YMCA, North Y Service Club, North Side Health Advisory Committee and the African Seventh-Day Adventist Church.

“Our goal is just to educate our community and get people to be healthy,” the Rev. Kwesi Gyimah said of his church once again sponsoring multiple screening stations at the health fair. The Oct. 2 health fair drew several hundred people, LaFollette estimated. This time around, with more planning and a great deal more promotion of the event, she said they hope to draw between 400 and 500 on May 14. “We literally had no budget last year,” Dowling said.

Graffiti: Problem in need of a community solution Continued from page A1 He reported on research he had conducted into the practices of other cities. In Cincinnati, he said, officials require only the signature of a property owner in order to remove graffiti at no charge to them. Indianapolis does not have anything in its ordinances, but does have a city-county task force that eradicates graffiti for free. St. Louis officials issue notices to the owners of properties marred by graffiti, according to Rose. If it’s not removed within a specified time, it’s done so by the city and reimbursement is sought. Hilliard, like Cincinnati, will remove graffiti free with a signed waiver from the property owner, he said. In cases where the owner refused to cooperate, he added, the graffiti is removed and the cost passed along to the owner. City Attorney Richard C. Pfeiffer Jr. told council members at the hearing that those caught tagging can be charged with a first-degree misdemeanor, punishable by a fine of up to $1,000 and six months in jail, along with a minimum of 100 hours of community service. City code does not contain provisions for more severe punishments in the case of repeat offenders, but Pfeiffer, a one-time Environmental Court judge, said this can be taken into account when meting out punishment. “I think they’re pretty good,” Pfeiffer said of existing graffiti ordinances, which were last updated in 1995. The problem, he added, is getting sufficient evidence to prosecute and convict taggers. Since 2008, he said, 56 individuals have been convicted of violating the city’s graffiti law. Pfeiffer said it was his practice as Environmental Court judge and remains the practice of his successor, Harland H. Hale, to sentence first-time offenders to 10 days in jail. Officer Scott Clinger, the community liaison for a large portion of the Northland area, said if the 30-day requirement is good enough for vacant properties, it ought to be good enough for oc-

cupied ones. “Our hands are tied when it comes to holding responsible the commercial building owner,” he said. Klein asked him how difficult it is to arrest graffiti vandals. “We basically have to catch them red-handed,” Clinger replied. “Does it spread?” Klein asked. “Is it more wildfire, or is it moss?” “It multiplies and then it goes from one building to another,”

Clinger said. He added that people who live in areas where graffiti tagging remains in place tell him they simply do not feel safe. Council President Pro Tem Hearcel F. Craig, who sat in on most of the hearing, praised the collaboration being displayed on the issue of graffiti among different areas of the city. “That’s critical in the work we will be doing on council,” he said.

North Side Health Advisory Committee

Leaders committed to nonprofit status By KEVIN PARKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Although the North Side Health Advisory Committee is the youngest of the four groups formed by Columbus Public Health, the members are not taking baby steps. At last week’s monthly meeting, they decided to continue to make strides toward obtaining nonprofit status. Although the members of the Near East, West and South side health advisory committees have not contemplated a similar move, the co-chairs of the group seeking to address the needs of, initially, the Northland area, made it clear they feel it’s an important step. “It is our goal to set it up,” Scott Dowling said. A tax attorney is working on a pro bono basis to assist the North Side Health Advisory Committee in obtaining 501c3 status, but Dowling acknowledged it’s requiring a good deal of homework on the part of committee. This includes creating a set of bylaws in order to meet In-

ternal Revenue Service requirements. And, even though an existing nonprofit organization has in the past enabled the committee to receive grant money, it’s a “cumbersome process,” Dowling said. In addition, co-chairwoman Sandy LaFollette pointed out, many grant applications that might help the committee put on health classes and other health-related activities are only accepted from nonprofits. “I feel we’re not going to move forward if we don’t have it,” LaFollette said. “That’s our goal, to be more effective in our community.” If the committee is to become more ambitious in addressing the specific health issues in the Northland area and eventually in a large section of the North Side, obtaining funding is going to play a

vital role, according to Dowling. “It remains to be seen if we will be successful with this,” he said. Also at last week’s meeting, LaFollette reported that efforts to bring the not-for-profit organization’s Veggie Van to the Northland area will continue. Although a charter school was to have been involved in the project initially, she said the Heritage Day Health Center would now be the main focus of planning. More details regarding scheduling the van, which offers lowcost fresh fruits and vegetables, will be forthcoming after the Y Walk Northland Wellness and Media Fair on Saturday, May 14, and committee members can turn their attentions to other issues, LaFollette said. kparks@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekNews.com

Goodwill agencies to celebrate anniversary To the editor: Goodwill Columbus this week is among more than 165 independent Goodwill agencies across the United States and Canada observing the 60th anniversary of Goodwill Industries Week. Locally, this commemoration also allows us to thank you — our shoppers and donors, and business and government partners — for the important role you play in Goodwill’s day-to-day operations. By donating gently used clothing, furniture and household items to Goodwill, you help others. Each year, Goodwill Columbus provides 1.2 million hours of service to 3,325 participants with disabilities and other barriers through day habilitation programs, community-based supported living services, employment training and job placement services. Additionally, your donations to Goodwill divert usable goods from landfills. In 2010, Goodwill Columbus received revenues of $4.4 million from

the resale of donated goods. Your dollars helped to fund more than 15 programs and services for individuals with disabilities and other barriers. Donated items we are unable to sell in our retail stores are spared from landfills as well. In 2011, Goodwill Columbus expects to recycle more than 1 million pounds of unwanted materials — metal, plastics, and wood, wicker and miscellaneous wares. During Goodwill Industries Week, I just wanted to say “thank you” to the people of Franklin County this year for helping Goodwill continue to “break barriers and build futures” for so many local individuals with disabilities. For more information on the impact of your donations to Goodwill Columbus, please visit www.goodwillcolumbus.org and www.donate.goodwill.org.

As it were

The city itself is the single monument to Joel Wright He is one of the more elusive men in the story of Columbus. Joel Wright is also one of the more important ones. Because of Wright, the whole downtown of Columbus is where it is, is named as it is and is laid out on lines that are still followed today. There is no picture, no portrait, no sketch of this remarkable man. Wright was a member of the Society of Friends, called Quakers, and most Quakers shunned pictures as a waste of time and effort. Because of the memories of his friends and acquaintances, we know a little bit about him. He was tall and strong and generally quite fit. He wore the long plain coat of the Quakers, with its large pockets with flaps folded over. He sported knee-length stockings and plain leather shoes. Both the buckles at his knees and on his shoes were made of silver and were a modest display of the success he had made of himself in Ohio. Born in 1750, Wright had missed most of the American Revolution and became known as a man who provided his own passage. Wright was a surveyor and by definition one of the few literate and well-read men in an often illiterate frontier society. In the years after the American Revolution, he spent most of his time surveying the upper reaches of the Scioto, Muskingum and Miami rivers. He also was a town planner and helped lay out Dayton, Ohio, and Louisville, Kentucky, among other places. After the death of his wife, Wright decided to follow his grown children into the Ohio country and eventually came to call the area around Waynesville his home. In spring 1812, he was called from southwest Ohio to do once more what he did best, only this time with even more attention to detail. Ohio in 1812 was a state in search of itself. Established in 1803, Ohio was the first state carved out of the Northwest Territory that had become a section of British America in 1763 and part of the newly established United States in 1783. A nation mired in debt and with little income used this vast expanse of land to pay its soldiers’ past-due wages. It sold the remaining land to anyone who wanted to buy. Because Ohio was closer to the east, it became the site of immense land grants to people from north and south, as well as people burned out by the British and even a colony of expatriate French settlers.

The land immediately across the Scioto from frontier Franklinton was called the “High Banks ED opposite Franklinton at LENTZ the Forks of the Scioto known as Wolf’s Ridge.” Most of the land, from Fifth Avenue on the north to Refugee Road on the south, was set aside for residents of Nova Scotia who had lost property because they had favored the American cause. Desperate for support, many of these people sold their land warrants to speculators and never came to Ohio. Some of the few who did settled near Broad Street and named their home after the place they left: Truro Township in Nova Scotia. By 1812, much of the land on that high ridge opposite Franklinton was empty. As such it became a place to examine as Ohio began looking for a new state capital. The first capital was at Chillicothe, a town along the Scioto River. Unlike the river towns of Marietta and Cincinnati, Chillicothe was a small frontier village and representative of the common people who were settling the new land. It also was directly below Adena, the hilltop estate of Ohio founder Thomas Worthington. Responding to requests for a more northern location, the capital city had been located briefly in Zanesville before being moved back to Chillicothe. In February 1812, after looking at many sites, the Ohio General Assembly chose the High Banks opposite Franklin-

ton as its new home. Joel Wright came from southwest Ohio to carve that new capital city from the wilderness. Working with local surveyor Joseph Vance, Wright laid out the town of Columbus in April 1812. He picked the site of Statehouse Square and a 10-acre site for a penitentiary, where the Cultural Arts Center is today. He filed a report with the general assembly, listing all of his expenses, including the $2.43 for his journey to central Ohio. Wright’s expenses included the cost of paper and other supplies and his room and board. All of his expenses, including his trip home, came to $17.62. It is fair to say in retrospect that Ohio got its money’s worth. By June 1812, the first sale of lots occurred. James Kilbourne of Worthington paid $1,000 for a corner lot at Broad and High. Other nearby lots went for several hundred dollars each. Sales abruptly slowed when it was later learned that America had gone to war with Britain on the same day, June 18, that the sale had been held. Wright returned to Columbus in 1813 to oversee the construction of the penitentiary. When it was under way, he resigned his position as “director of Columbus.” He went home and lived in the Quaker community of Springboro until his death in 1829. There is no statue of Joel Wright in Columbus, and Wright would have been appalled if one had been erected. The capital city was his monument and a source of pride to him.

Grants awarded for community gardens As part of Earth Day celebrations last month, Franklin County commissioners and Columbus Mayor Michael B.

brainstorming” session designed to identify issues facing the Northland area and to devise solutions to them, according to Remy. He wants participants to strictly divide their time between those two areas, with 25 percent devoted to coming up with problems and 75 percent spent on looking into ways to solve them. The result of coming up with possible solutions, Remy hopes, is creation of a task force to seek to implement them. Remy is planning a two-hour event that will be led by a professional facilitator. “I have plenty of people willing to host it, as well,” he said. Several details for the gathering have yet to be worked out. “My thought process is that we would try to announce something in May officially,” he said. “There are still some people I would like to discuss it with and have their support.” Northland 2062 has Paul’s support, although he said it might be better to focus specifically on the next decade. “But I certainly applaud Emmanuel’s initiative,” Paul said. Remy anticipates that much of the effort expended that day will focus on Northland’s image, primarily the negative view people in other parts of Columbus have of it, particularly since the demise of the city’s first enclosed shopping mall in 2002. “We all have a general sense of what the problems are in Northland, and some are really by perceptions,” Remy said. For Paul, the idea of enlisting the help of community residents to spruce up Northland’s image and perhaps eventually update the existing community plan is part of ongoing efforts by local leaders. “I think it is all part of the same conversation,” he said. kparks@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekNews.com

The Beat Arts, eats and fun in central Ohio

tally modern — young, beautiful, gifted and a contemporary tour-de-force on the classical music scene. But the truth is her calling card — a brilliant ear for improvisation — is a link to the days and names you studied in music appreciation class. Theme and Variations? Inventions? Cadenzas? All often the result of accepted “showing off” by the composer and/or performer. Montero — you may remember her performance at the Inauguration of President Obama — will perform with ProMusica Chamber Orchestra as well as a solo set Friday, May 6, as the feature piece of ProMusica’s “Rhapsody in Blue Spring Soiree.” Concert tickets are $80-$30, which includes the pre-concert reception.

Ohio Folk Festival is three days (May 6-8) of concerts, jam sessions, workshops, children’s

activities and more. The Saturday night headline concert features Rod and Annie Capps and Dave Hawkins. An event highlight in recent years is the Friday night “worst song in the world contest,” but fun and music are the order of the day all weekend long, as festival-goers are likely to hear ’60s protest songs, Celtic tunes and old English ballads, work songs, sea shanties and all sort of rootsy tuneage.

Cuco’s Taqueria serves up unbeatable values Because today is Cinco de Mayo, why not beat the burrito-buzzsawing crowds by igniting your fiesta well before noon? I’m not talking about drinking all day long (though I’m not ruling it out, either), I’m suggesting you jump-start your morning with a zesty and stunningly cheap Mexican breakfast at Cuco’s. Most people know Cuco’s as one of the best full-service Mexican restaurants

in Columbus, and it is certainly that. But the family- and party-friendly Cuco’s serves up some unbeatable first-meal values, too. I’ll admit at first it felt a bit odd settling into a roomy booth in the modest and amusingly Mexi-kitschy Cuco’s at 9 a.m. I’m so used to digging into their fresh chips and salsa and heck-yeah margaritas (the Original, on the rocks and with half the sugar is my local benchmark) By Jodi Miller/ThisWeek that lurking over eggs and diner-style coffee

(sometimes flavored with cinnamon) almost seemed surreal. So I ordered a Vampiro cocktail to get my mind right. Made with tequila, grapefruit soda and the bracing tequila chaser called sangrita, it tastes entertainingly citrusy, spicy, sweet and tart. Anyway, sucking on that Vampiro proved to be an inspired idea. So did ordering the smorgasbord-like El Tapatio platter ($6.25). Kinda like breakfast, lunch and dinner all on a single huge plate, it’s a phenomenal deal. I got three eggs over greasy; a generous mound of addictive Mexican hash (crispy fried potato cubes blended with lots of properly fat-rendered and zingy chorizo); two terrific barbacoa tacos fashioned with soft corn tortillas wrapped around spicy, juicy and super-tender beef; and rich refried beans laced with melted cheese. Equally giddy-making in variety and size and likewise providing killer value is the hog-out ensemble called Nuevo

after the eggs in the previous dish (well, plus rice and beans — don’t think you’re getting off that easy here) by ordering the good Huevos Rancheros ($5.25). In general, Chilaquiles ($5) is a clever Mexican leftovers meal made by stewing yesterday’s tortillas with condiments and other flavor enhancers. At Cuco’s, this translated into a piquant, cooked salsa verde playing off of a fresh tomato pico de gallo plus three eggs (of course), cheese and sides of those irresistible breakfast potatoes and refried beans. For something a little more unusual, but still nice, try the Oaxaqeña ($6.75). This was three ample enchiladas crammed with scrambled eggs and spuds wholly slathered in a stout black bean sauce. Like all of the breakfasts at Cuco’s, it’s an incredibly generous serving of food and flavor for a mere pittance of pesos.

Amaneser ($7). The roll call on that one went like this: • Three fried eggs (because three’s better than two, right?) enticingly simmered in a zippy ranchero sauce then winningly plopped atop fried corn tortillas • Soupy, full-flavored black beans • What the menu calls bacon or sausage but happily turned out to be more of that well-done chorizo • Two big and very nice pancakes (dessert’s too often neglected in the morning, don’t you think?) that were light, had attractively crisp exteriors, were pleasantly flavored with vanilla and sprinkled with powdered sugar.

Chefs to converge on Audubon Center for fourth Taste event

By Lorrie Cecil/ThisWeek

Kevin Caskey, owner and chef of Skillet, puts raspberries on the raspberry panna cotta with lemon and rhubarb verbena. It is one of the dishes he is making for the Taste of Dine Originals event to be held May 12 at Grange Insurance Audubon Center.

Kevin Caskey can’t wait to show off his chops next week at the fourth annual Taste of Dine Originals. The chef and owner of Skillet in Schumacher Place will serve raspberry panna cotta with rhubarb and lemon verbena, along with some other creations. Caskey is among 50 chefs participating in the fourth annual event, to be held May 12 at the Grange Insurance Audubon Center, 505 W. Whittier St. He said he hasn’t participated for two years and is eager to get back. “It’s good exposure for our group as a whole,” he said. “We’re all independently owned restaurants, and we’re a diverse group. And in one night you can taste not only the food offerings but understand the concept and thoughts that went into the development of the restaurants that make up our group.” The gala will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. Tickets are $100 and can be purchased at www.dineoriginalscolumbus.com. Some tickets might be available on the day of the event and may be purchased at the door. Proceeds benefit Dine Originals Columbus and the Buckeye Ranch, which provides mental-health treatment and alcohol and drug services for children with behavioral or psychological and substance-abuse disorders. “We’re blessed to be part of the event for four years,” said Michelle Aro, development coordinator at the Buckeye Ranch. “The partnership we’ve built with the Columbus Dine Originals group has been fantastic. They’ve been a wonderful group to work with.” The event has been moved from the Smith Bros’ Hardware Co. building downtown because it simply outgrew the space, said

Katharine Moore, executive director of the local chapter of Dine Originals. The Audubon Center, on the Whittier Peninsula, provides a modern backdrop with attractive surroundings, she said. “We thought it really complemented our messaging and mission because they are green and our members have that commonality,” Moore said. “It’s such a beautiful oasis in downtown Columbus that people don’t know about. So it’s fun for us to introduce that venue to a whole new crowd. In addition to food, more than 30 vineyards will be represented, as well as local breweries and micro distilleries. One of those is Watershed Distillery, just outside Grandview Heights. “We are excited to be a part of it,” Greg Lehman, co-founder of the company, said of the celebration. “I think it’s a good way for us to be involved locally.” A silent auction will feature cooking lessons, private dinners, special events, art and rare bottles of wine. Moore said chefs look forward to showing off their talents and mixing with the crowd. “They have fun riffing off each other,” she said. “They’re very competitive on what they put out. But they’re there to talk to their customers in a way that they just don’t have the opportunity to on a busy Saturday night.”

Cordell aiming to regain state title For an athlete who didn’t like running when she started competitively at age 9, Taneisha Cordell has developed into an elite competitor. The New Albany High School senior, who will run track at the University of Miami (Fla.) beginning next year, has the fastest area time to this point in the season in both the 400 meters LARRY and her specialty, the 800. LARSON She had the fourth-fastest time in the country in the 800 in the winter indoor season and, after finishing fourth in the Division I state meet as a freshman, she won the 800 as a sophomore at Reynoldsburg before transferring to New Albany. Cordell also won the 800 at the USA Track & Field national meet last summer in Sacramento, Calif. “My mom got me into running when I was in elementary school and I really wasn’t very good and I was a basketball girl so I wasn’t even really interested,” Cordell said. “Through lots of hard work and dedication and lots of support from my teammates, my family and my coaches, Denny Hammond at Reynoldsburg and Otis Winston here at New Albany, I have been fortunate to be successful. Like lots of athletes, I owe so much to so many people and right now I owe so much to coach Winston. He has definitely been a major factor in my life and we have a great relationship.” Even though Cordell has been sensational this spring in the 400, her specialty still is the 800. She loves the challenge of that event. “The 800 isn’t too short and it isn’t too long,” Cordell said. “I look at that race as a measuring stick for toughness. Anyone can sprint, but in the 800 it becomes which runner is the gutsiest in the last part of the race and who can finish at the fastest pace. “When I finished fourth in the state as a freshman it boosted my confidence, and winning the event the next year was the most exciting sports moment of my life because I was part of a state championship team at Reynoldsburg and it was the end of an amazing season. “Last year was a major disappointment at the state championship meet. I had illnesses with a sinus infection last spring and my confidence was down when I ran in the 800 final. Then I fell with about 150 yards left in the race and didn’t finish, which makes me more determined than ever to get my title back this year. I think about it all the time.” Cordell not only wants to win the 800 state title, she wants to do it in convincing fashion. “Not only do I want to get my 800 title back, I want to do it by demolishing the state record,” she said. “I want to get to 2:08 or better and that pushes me all the time in practice, and what will probably determine my success will be my mental attitude.

DeSales Roundup

Boys track team puts in overtime By JEREMY STEWART ThisWeek Community Newspapers

By Eric George/ThisWeek

The Stallions’ Warren Ball competes in the 400 meters during the Braves Invitational at Whetstone on April 27.

The DeSales High School boys track and field team wasn’t going to go home early when the Mingo Relays at Logan was delayed on April 29. The Stallions already had three meets canceled this season and coach Rick Baker needed his team to face as much competition as possible with the CCL meet and the postseason approaching. “It’s been tough,” Baker said the day before the Mingo Relays. “With three meets canceled already, we need to get out there. The CCL meet is just a little more than a week away.” The Mingo Relays began April 29 but didn’t finish until the early hours of April 30. It was after 1 a.m. when the Stallions finally lined up for the 6,400-meter relay, the final event.

“It was a little difficult to stay warmed up,” hurdler Riley West said. “We had to make sure everybody stayed in the zone. It was a different experience.” A traffic accident on U.S. Route 33 kept four teams from arriving at Logan in time for the meet, which was scheduled to start with field events at 4 p.m. The Stallions, who arrived on time, had to wait for those teams to show up. Once they did, officials delayed the meet another two hours to give the late-arriving teams a chance to warm up. The Stallions, who didn’t arrive back at school until around 2 a.m., placed fifth with 66 points behind champion Westerville Central (142). Even though many of its top point scorers from a year ago returned this season, DeSales still is trying to find out which athletes are ready to advance past the Di-

vision II district meet. High jumper Aaron Melsop was the team’s only athlete to compete at the Mingo Relays who has regional experience. He placed ninth in the high jump (5 feet, 6 inches) in the Mingo Relays behind champion Davon Reed of Westerville Central (6-4). “All year we’ve been scoring in just about every event,” Baker said. “Maybe we’re not winning individual races all the time. It’s been the consistency of scoring in all the events. I don’t know how that’s going help us in the league where there’s only five teams, but I like where we are in the district.” The Stallions compete in the CCL meet May 12 and 14 at Columbus School for Girls and in the district meet May 17, 19 and 21 at Hamilton Township.

Coming off a season in which it won a share of its first City title since 1996, the Northland High School football team already has found reason to celebrate during the offseason. In one of the Vikings’ weight room sessions in January, coach Kevin Tooson counted 54 athletes participating. “This January was the most kids we’ve had in the weight room non-summer,” said Tooson, who will be entering his ninth season next fall. “I took a picture of it with my phone to remember it by.” With a 12-7 win over Beechcroft in their regular-season fiSee LARSON, page A8 nale, the Vikings earned a co-

sion at 6-1. Brookhaven, which had won the past three CityNorth titles, finished third at 52, followed by Whetstone (4-3), Centennial (3-4), Mifflin (3-4), Columbus East (1-6) and Linden-McKinley (0-7). The victory over Beechcroft also secured the first postseason berth for Northland, which lost to Hilliard Davidson 47-6 in a Division I, Region 3 firstround game to finish 8-3. Although they will be graduating a group of seniors that includes Miami Universitysignee Jarrell Jones, the Vikings believe they’ll have enough returnees to be in the hunt for the league title again next fall. Junior Marquan Barnes, who

the key returnees at running back as well as in the defensive secondary. Junior Tyra’ Harp and sophomore Brandon Williams should give the Vikings a pair of key returning offensive linemen and junior Sam Turay should be back at running back and defensive back. Junior Will Barnes has been excelling for the boys track team, of which Tooson also is the coach. “The quarterback position is open, and we just want to increase our strength from the guys up front,” Tooson said. “Being the North Division champions, they understand that we want to go out and defend that, but we’ve

got to approach it differently.” •Beechcroft football coach Bruce Ward also has been pleased with his team’s offseason approach after earning a share of the City-North title last fall. “From the guys who have been (in the weight room), we want to see if everyone reaches their weight goals every month,” Ward said. “If their goal is to lift 200 pounds in January, then we want them to go 210 in February and 220 in March. We give out awards for those guys who reach their goals.” Losses like the one the Cougars had against Northland See ROUNDUP, page A8

City-North teams have questions to answer From staff reports Below are capsule looks at City League-North 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 ThisWeekSPORTS.com.

Centennial •Coach: Pat Sergio, 25th season •2010 record: 4-6 overall, 3-4 (tied for fifth) in City-North Division •Final 2010 computer ranking: 26th in Division II, Region 7 •Outlook: It took a combination of factors last fall for the Centennial High School football team to finally snap a skid of consecutive losses that spanned more than three seasons. Chances are not many would have predicted that the Stars would go on a threegame winning streak and earn four victories overall after losing their previous 34 games. Helping them find success was the leadership and athleticism provided by seniors Di’Andre Harrison, Wesley Russell and Taylor Wicks, each of whom made first-team all-City LeagueNorth Division. Russell, who started at quarterback and defensive back, also made ThisWeek Super 25 honorable mention. Not to be underscored was that Centennial got an infusion from a group of new assistants under veteran coach Pat Sergio, with Mark Shaffer helping the team find significantly more success moving the ball as offensive coordinator. Among the biggest questions for the Stars coming off a 4-6 season is whether they’ll be able to maintain their offensive surge. After being shut out seven times and totaling just 22 points during the 2009 season, Centennial averaged 16.9 points last season.

Joel Waits, who will be a senior next fall, has been groomed as Russell’s heir apparent at quarterback. Junior Keenen Smith, who made first-team all-City at defensive back last fall and was one of the team’s top receivers, gives Centennial a player to build around on defense.

Columbus East •Coach: Lewis Carter, first season •2010 record: 1-9 overall, 1-7 (seventh) in City-North Division •Final 2010 computer ranking: 25th in Division III, Region 10 •Outlook: East took a step back last season, finishing 1-9 to mark its worst record since going a combined a 4-45 from 2000-04, including 0-10 in 2004. During the offseason, however, former Mifflin and Northland assistant Lewis Carter took over as coach. Carter, who was the linebackers coach last year when Northland made the Division I playoffs, will attempt to help East build momentum from the 18-14 victory it posted in its season finale over Linden-McKinley. Junior Thomas Woodruff should be back at quarterback after making honorable mention all-City last year, and sophomore wide receiver Enous McGee also should return to lead a team that featured only three seniors a year ago. Carter played linebacker for the University of Cincinnati and served as a captain as a senior in 2001. He then played middle linebacker for five seasons for the Fort Wayne Freedom of the National Indoor Football League and was the team’s all-time leading tackler. The Tigers went 35-95 in 13 seasons under former coach Mike White, who resigned after last season. Their only winning season came in 1999 when they went 8-3 and made the Division II playoffs. East’s only other non-losing seasons under White came in 2006 and ’08 when it went 5-5.

ROUNDUP

Linden-McKinley •Coach: Aaron Owens, third season •2010 record: 1-9 overall, 0-7 (eighth) in City-North Division •Final 2010 computer ranking: 26th in Division III, Region 10 •Outlook: After back-to-back threewin seasons, Linden-McKinley earned its only victory last fall in Week 2 by beating Westland 20-16. Not including their 18-14 loss to East, the Panthers allowed 49.5 points per game on the way to an 0-7 record in the City-

Continued from page A7 and against non-league opponents Watterson (30-6) and St. Charles (22-12) have Ward and his staff focusing on improving offensively. Beechcroft will be losing honorable mention all-district quarterback Sheldon Akin, first-team all-district wide receiver Austin Davenport and special mention all-district running back Dai’Ron Glover to graduation. Sophomore Maurice Hale, however, saw significant action at quarterback last year and even got some playing time at the position as a freshman. Junior Shaquille Minnifield was the second-leading rusher with 649 yards and also should return to the offense. Beechcroft is expected to return three offensive linemen who were regulars last year, while sophomore Khaleed Franklin and freshman Adonis Davis each started at linebacker last fall and are expected to return. “One thing we talked about was that we want to be more consistent in our offense,” Ward said. “We’ve focused on our offense, which we felt was a weak point last year. We want to see if we have a bread-and-butter play and is everybody running to the correct side of the field. How can we make it more efficient?” •The Brookhaven football team is looking to bounce back from its first non-winning season since 2001 under Trevor White, who was named coach in early January. The former Brookhaven and Marion-Franklin assistant has replaced Anthony Thornton, who went 24-10 with two playoff berths in three seasons. “Some of our goals (for the offseason) weren’t quite measurable,” White said. “We’re really working right now on increasing our team unity and just getting everybody pulled in the same direction. We’ve done a bench-pressing competition and have tried to get the kids working together. We’ve preached all winter and spring that we’ll only go as far as our seniors can take us.” The Bearcats began last season by losing each of their three non-league games but bounced back to beat Northland 3-0 on Sept. 17. Brookhaven was first at 4-0 in the City-North before falling to Beechcroft 26-10 on Oct. 15. The Bearcats lost their regular-season finale to Mifflin 22-20 on Oct. 29 to finish one game out of first. One of the positives of last season was that several sophomores and juniors saw significant action, including junior Jesse Curry on the offensive and defensive lines.

Last season represented a changing of the guard in the City League-North Division, as the Brookhaven High School football team had its three-year run of winning the league title snapped. Beechcroft and Northland shared the title at 6-1, and the Vikings advanced to the postseason for the first time. Among the things we’ll look at in this installment of the Friday Night Live: Spring Edition is what Northland is doing to build on its breakthrough season last fall. Brookhaven finished third in the City-North last year at 5-2, with Whetstone (4-3), Centennial (3-4), Mifflin (3-4), Columbus East (16) and Linden-McKinley (0-7) rounding out the standings. Will it be another tight battle among Beechcroft, Brookhaven and Northland for league supremacy? Or will one of the conference’s other teams step forward next fall? Centennial and Mifflin each showed significant improvement last year, while East and Linden still are attempting to build programs despite having low numbers. Brookhaven and East each hired a new coach during the offseason.

North. One of the positives that came from last season was the experience gained by players such as juniors Chajaz Davis and Charles Jones Jr. Davis was quarterback last fall and made first-team all-City on defense. Jones was one of the team’s running backs and made second-team allleague on defense. Another plus is that Linden should return one of its biggest players from last year in junior Quin’Yone McLaurin (6foot-1, 302), an honorable mention allCity selection who started on the offensive line. Aaron Owens is entering his third season as coach and will try to lead Linden to its first winning season since 2001 when it went 6-4. The Panthers have gone 22-67 since that season.

Mifflin •Coach: Gregg Miller, second season •2010 record: 5-5 overall, 3-4 (tied for fifth) in City-North Division •Final 2010 computer ranking: 22nd in Division II, Region 7 •Outlook: Mifflin showed significant improvement a year ago. In particular, the Punchers were much more effective offensively as they scored in double figures in all of their games on the way to finishing 5-5. With junior running back Louis Baker and sophomore wide receiver Kamaran Green among those expected back, Mifflin again should have one of the better offensive units in the City-North. Green made first-team all-City and Baker was second-team all-league on defense. Junior defensive back Troy Robinson, who made first-team all-district as a sophomore but was rarely thrown against last year, gives the Punchers an experienced player back on defense. Gregg Miller, who formerly coached Brookhaven to 10 City titles in 17 seasons, helped the Punchers improve from

2-8 in 2009. Mifflin endured consecutive losing seasons from 2007-09 after going 5-5 in 2006. The last time the Punchers finished above .500 was in 2005 when they went 6-4.

Whetstone •Coach: Jim Worden, fourth season •2010 record: 4-6 overall, 4-3 (fourth) in City-North Division •Final 2010 computer ranking: 23rd in Division II, Region 7 •Outlook: During an 0-5 start that derailed the Braves’ hopes of having a winning season last fall, one thing that was clear to coach Jim Worden was that his players “got pushed around a little bit.” With that in mind, getting stronger in the weight room — as well as staying focused in the classroom — have been the Braves’ biggest offseason focuses. “We always have to move people around to different positions, and there’s always going to be some openings,” Worden said. “The main thing was that we really needed to be stronger. We have some key players who really had a great winter and some of them are having a great spring.” Juniors Kevin Bennett (LB), Skyler Farley (DL) and Dezwan Polk (DL) are among those whose development in the coming months could be crucial in whether the defense improves next season. Last season, Whetstone gave up an average of 24.2 points. After the 0-5 start, the Braves won four of their final five. Sophomore two-way lineman Ricky Cantor, junior defensive lineman Kyle Radabaugh and junior defensive back Marvin Draper are others who likely will take on more significant roles next year, according to Worden. Whetstone endured its first losing season since 2006 last fall under Worden, who is 17-13 in three seasons.

Continued from page A7 district. West has been one of the Stallions who, despite the cancellations, has shown signs that he could have a strong postseason. Last year, he was fifth in the 300 hurdles in the district 1 meet, narrowly missing advancing to regional. West finished with a time of 42.41 seconds, as Eastmoor Academy’s Steven Mitchell (39.55) won. Licking Heights’ Jordan Bodell secured the fourth and final regional-qualifying spot (41.64). West is running faster times this season. He tied AmandaClearcreek’s Jonathan Wampler for third in the 300 hurdles (41.19) in the Mingo Relays, as Teays Valley’s Michael Hutter won (40.56). “What’s driving me is I want to get back to (the district meet) and get past that point and into the state meet,” West said. “I kind of want to break the school record, which is about 37.4. I’m focusing on that and trying to come in first at the CCL meet.” Baker also has high hopes for Warren Ball in the postseason. Ball, who missed last season to rehabilitate an injury sustained playing football, has been excelling in the 200. He was fourth in the Mingo Relays (23.1) behind champion Channing Doermann of Westerville Central (22.4). “He’s done really well,” Baker said of Ball. “He’s really getting back into running shape.” David Brooks-Dandridge placed fourth in the discus (136-9) in the Mingo Relays behind champion Tyler Cline of Reedsville Eastern (153-1). The performance by Brooks-Dandridge came two weeks after he won the shot put with a throw of 45-9 1/2 at the Stallion Invitational on April 16. •A day after losing its first game, the softball team was awarded the top seed for the Division II district tournmament. The Stallions lost to Sylvania Southview 2-1 in the Prebis Memorial Tournament on April 30 at LaGrange Keystone. They fell behind 2-0 before finally getting a run in the bottom of the seventh inning.
