KUHLMAN ThisWeek Community Newspapers Voters in the city of Gahanna and Mifflin Township said yes to a proposed 3.8-mill operating levy for the Mifflin Township Fire Department on May 3.

City council selects City discovers trust fund Pack to fill open seat for herb center building By MARLA K. KUHLMAN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Gahanna City Council has selected Tim Pack to fill the at-large council seat left vacant by the resignation of Andre Porter. Council president David Samuel said each individual had different reasons for selecting Pack from among eight candidates who had applied for the position. “He has a great knowledge of what’s going on in Gahanna, the government structure, and he served Gahanna well on the Board of Building and Zoning Appeals (BZA),” Samuel said. Pack has served as chairman, vice chairman or member of the BZA since 2000.

“I’m glad to be a part of a great community, and, hopefully, I can make a contribution as a council member,” Pack told ThisWeek. “In my travels over the years, I’ve visited many cities. I try to get the metro section of (each city’s) newspaper. We have no problems compared to other cities. We have challenges, and out of challenges come solutions, and from solutions bring strength for the future.” Pack has worked as an airline pilot since 1985. He’s currently a captain for American Airlines Inc. Pack also served as president of the Academy Ridge Community Association from 1996 to 2000. He’s a 1983 graduate of the

Samuel said an appointment would have to be made to the BZA because Pack is required to resign from that board to take the council seat. After serving only a few months on council, Porter resigned to accept an appointment by Gov. John Kasich to the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio. He was appointed to the council seat after Tom Kneeland resigned to accept the city’s technologydirector position.

Less than a month after Gahanna City Council approved the purchase of the Ohio Herb Education Center, 110 Mill St., city leaders learned that a trust for the building had been established in 1999 to help with preservation and maintenance costs. That trust makes the purchase of the property even a better deal, said Tony Collins, Gahanna’s parks and recreation director. Council approved the purchase of the herb center from Mill Street Development for $305,000 on April 4. While performing a title search, Collins learned a covenant had been placed on the property in 2002, when the Ohio History Society sold the property. The herb center, which was known as the Patton House, is listed on the National Register of

Historic Places as the Nafzger-Miller House. The Ohio Historical Society was a beneficiary of the Patton Trust and accepted the Patton House for the purpose of its preservation, maintenance and care. As a result of the covenant, any rehabilitation work done at the house must be done in accordance with the U.S. Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation. Some Gahanna council members expressed caution in purchasing the structure because the city would be burdened with the cost of replacing or repairing the slate roof. Collins said he has obtained two quotes: a shingle with slate appearance for $13,600 and a slate roof ranging from $55,000 to $60,000. He said an asphalt shingle roof probably would be allowed under the Secretary of Interior’s standards. See HERB, page A2

Emery to leave Gahanna for Marysville By MARLA K. KUHLMAN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

An expanded job scope and proximity to family attracted Gahanna service director Terry Emery to accept the director-ofadministration position in Marysville. Emery, who has worked for Gahanna since 2003, will begin his duties in Marysville on May 31. Marysville Mayor John Gore’s office announced April 29 that Emery had been selected from an initial pool of 36 applicants. “Terry brings with him a great deal of local government experience and enthusiasm, and I am looking forward to bringing him on board to move the city forward as we serve the citizens of Marysville,” Gore said. Marysville’s director of administration serves as the chief administrative officer for city government and oversees day-to-day operations in the city.

Emery told ThisWeek he didn’t formally apply for the vacant position initially, but that Gore had contacted him. “I received a call from the mayor,” he said. “After talking with the mayor, I felt comfortable submitting my resume for the position. Part of it was their interest in me. It was an appealing position because the scope of the position interested me a lot. It oversees all city operations.” Marysville has 160 full-time employees, Emery said. He currently leads 35 full-time staff in Gahanna’s service department. Emery also has a brother who owns a business in Marysville, and his parents and in-laws live near Marysville. “My wife and I are from the Marion County area, so there was some appeal there, as well,” he said. “It was the scope of the job, and the Marysville community has enormous potential, and it’s something I’m excited about.”

LEVY Continued from page A1

Emery will receive a base salary of $105,000 plus a standard benefits package provided for all fulltime city employees. In Gahanna, Emery’s base salary is $108,000. He replaces Jillian Froment, who recently accepted a position with the Ohio Department of Insurance. Emery said Gahanna has been fantastic, and the service department’s staff members have been phenomenal, from the deputy director on down. Emery said he’s most proud of improved efficiencies in the service department. “Just recently, we went to an automated metering structure,” he said. “There are technology advancements making us more efficient that makes me proud of what’s going on.” Additionally, when he arrived in Gahanna eight years ago, there were areas in the city with frequent stormwater issues that re-

sulted in flooding. “We performed projects that almost totally eliminated flooding possibilities off Cherry Bottom, near the Columbus Academy area. Recently, we did the Sycamore Run basis off Hamilton Road.” Emery, who resides on Columbus’east side, eventually will move to Marysville, he said. Prior to working in Gahanna, Emery served in various capacities in Darke County’s Greenville, with the majority of his time spent as safety and service director. Brian Hoyt, Gahanna’s publicinformation officer, said the city would begin studying the service department’s structure and determine how to move forward. ThisWeek reporter Lin Rice also contributed to this story.

He anticipates a fee of about $25 per student, with a recommendation expected during May’s board meeting. He said he also expects caps to be placed on those fees. Class sizes also hinged on the outcome of the levy. As a result of its success, class sizes will be 26 students at the elementary level, 28 at the middle schools and 28 to 34 at the high school.

al $159 annually per $100,000 of assessed property value, said Julio Valladares, district treasurer. As a result of the levy passing, the high school will keep busing. White previously said this has been one of the toughest years in the district’s history, with $7 million in budget cuts on top of the previous $5 million in cuts over the past two years. Despite the levy win, the district will implement pay-to-participate fees this fall for athletics at $200 per sport for high school students and $100 per sport for middle school athletes. The passage of the levy will allow the district to cap all athletics fees

Continued from page A1 The levy passed 118 votes to 87 votes, according to unofficial results. Only township residents voted on the police levy because the Mifflin Township Police Department serves only the unincorporated areas of the township. The police levy will cost residents about $269 a year per $100,000 of assessed property value.

PACK Continued from page A1 Nick Hogan and Richard Kossler were the other two finalists council had considered for the open seat. Hogan has 36 years of experience in insurance, marketing and management. He founded his Gahanna-based business, Insurance Advisors, in 1994. Kossler has worked for Columbus’ SimplexGrinnell as operations manager for seven office employees and 16 field personnel since 2009. Samuel said he didn’t think council had ever received so many applications for an open council seat: 14 when Kneeland resigned and eight following Porter’s resignation.

HERB Continued from page A1 “Even better,” he said, “Mrs. (Mary Miller) Patton left money in the Columbus Foundation for historical restoration of the house. We’re excited to know there’s a funding source.” Collins said $75,000 was deposited in 1999, and some funds were used in 2002 for improvements. Franco Ruffini, Ohio Historical Society preservation officer, wrote to Collins that earnings from the Mary Miller Patton Fund have averaged $3,000 annually. “We are open to making some of these funds available to the city for its efforts to maintain and make necessary repairs to the Patton House,” Ruffini said. “We appreciate the city’s interest in the Patton House and feel that its use as an educational center by the Herb Society is consistent with preservation of the property.” Collins also learned that the property likely would be eligible for other matching grants, as well. “This is new information to us,” he said. “We feel it actually is a better deal.” Collins said the building is one of only two structures from the original town of Bridgeport. The original structure was built in 1855, and additions were made to the home in 1910. The center includes a gift shop, a parlor and a kitchen and is used for classes, parties, meetings and rentals.

Lincoln High to present ‘Thoroughly Modern Millie’ By MARLA K. KUHLMAN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Lincoln High School theater department will present the Broadway musical comedy, “Thoroughly Modern Millie,� at 7:30 p.m. May 12-14 and during a 2 p.m. matinee Sunday, May 15. Director Cindi Macioce said the show is “massive,� featuring 58 cast members and large sets, even a working elevator. “Approximately 120 kids are involved on stage, in the pit and behind the scenes,� she said. “The kids and families involved sacrifice a lot to be a part of the production.� Macioce said she expects every person in the audience would find something to like in the show. “The musical is great, the dancing is high-energy and the story is an old-fashion love affair with appropriate amounts of villainy,� she said. “Thoroughly Modern Millie� tells the story of young Millie Dillmount, played by Emily Brown. She has just moved to the city in search of a new life for herself. It’s based in New York, during a time when women were entering the workforce and the rules of love and social behavior were changing. Based upon the popular movie, the stage version includes a full score of new songs and bright dance numbers, frisky flappers, dashing leading men and a dragon-lady of a villainess audiences love to hate. “The Gahanna community has always come out and supported our shows,� Macioce said. “The kids and adults participating in this show will work hard to maintain that quality of excellence the GLHS audiences deserve and have come to expect. We are

hoping for another big hit.� In choosing a show for the students, Macioce’s primary concern was in what would give students the most opportunities, from both a performance and technical standpoint, she said. After last year’s show, “Jekyll & Hyde,� the drama department wanted something completely different, she said. “Our philosophy involves exposing the kids to different styles and types of musicals in order to make them well-rounded actors, singers, musicians and technicians,� Macioce said. “We hadn’t done a period musical comedy like ‘Millie’ since ‘42nd Street’ (2002) ... and ‘Millie’ is also a show which none of the directors had done, so it seemed like a good fit.� In addition to Brown, the characters and the students who portray them, respectively, include Jimmy Smith, Aaron Mickey; Ruth, Kelsey Mautz; Gloria, Sydni Randle; Rita, Kirsten Bockrath; Alice, Chelsea Spears; Cora, Holly Yanai; Lucille, Sara DeVaney; Ethel Peas, Ellen Wood; Mrs. Meers, Jenna LaBorde; Miss Dorothy Brown, Grace Pfeifer; Ching Ho, Randy Reynolds; Bun Foo, Jalen Carter; Miss Flannery, Emily Hurst; Mr. Trevor Graydon, Mark Batke;

Commentary & opinion



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. Yet 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 of these people 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, Ky., 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 ED America in 1763 and part LENTZ 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’ pastdue wages. It sold the remaining land to anyone who wanted to buy. Ohio 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 opposite Franklinton at 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 ridge opposite Franklinton still 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.

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 Franklinton 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, as well, where the Cultural Arts Center is today. He later filed a report with the general assembly, listing all of his expenses, including the $2.43 for his journey to central Ohio. All of his expenses, including his trip home, came to $17.62. It is probably 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, and other nearby lots went for several hundred dollars each. Sales 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.

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 bar-

riers and build futures” for so many local individuals with disabilities. For more information on the impact of your donations to Goodwill Columbus, please visit and

Blacklick to host ‘Strides INTERESTED IN WEARING for Pride’ fundraiser MULTIFOCAL CONTACT By MARLA K. KUHLMAN

ThisWeek Community Newspapers

A closer look

Blacklick Elementary School will host its third annual eco-friendly fitness fundraiser/community day, called “Strides For Pride: Promoting Peace,” from 8 a.m. to noon Friday, May 6, at the school. Heather Bishoff, PTO president and event chair, said Strides for Pride would feature more than 40 companies participating of which 30 would be in attendance. “As a school community, we have a collective value system that we’ve tried to incorporate into our event,” she said. “Fitness, being green, working together and, this year, promoting peace: the importance of being a global citizen—stewards of all countries.” Bishoff said Blacklick is proud of the event, the level of participation and support from not only the school community but also local businesses. “As we all know, school funds only reach so far, and this is our community coming together to reach right back and pick up where school funds leave off wherever possible,” she said. Bishoff estimates about 600 in attendance for the day of walking and fundraising. Entertainment will include face painting, a hairstriping booth and dunk tank, as well as activities provided by Judy Dollenmayer Studio of Dance,

A silent auction will feature almost 100 items, such as Glow Putt Mini Golf, an OSU basketball jersey autographed by Jared Sullinger, a football by signed by Archie Griffin, gift baskets, birthday party packages, a Scarborough Tennis East membership and lunch with the principal of Middle School South, Angie Adrean, as well as lunch with Robin Schmidt, principal of Blacklick Elementary School.

The Beat Arts, eats and fun in central Ohio

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.

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

Chilaquiles at Cuco's Taqueria.

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. Yeah, that’s a lot of food. For a more Check out the new Columbus-area dinmodest repast, you could just call it quits ing guide at

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 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.”

City proceeding with Central Park infrastructure By MARLA K. KUHLMAN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

A closer look

Gahanna City Council approved two resolutions May 2 and will consider additional legislation May 16 to provide infrastructure at Central Park for future economic development. Development director Anthony Jones said the city needs shovel-ready sites at Central Park, especially after JPMorgan Chase recently announced its plan to lease 122,000 square feet of office space at 800 and 825 Tech Center Drive. The Tech Center-Science Boulevard connector will link the eastern portion of Tech Center Drive with Science Boulevard, completing the Central Park concept, which began with the Bedford landfill closure and concludes with the infrastructure projects needed to create developable land surrounding the former landfill, Jones said. Council approved a resolution to authorize the director of public service to take bids for the Tech

Development director Anthony Jones said the city needs shovel-ready sites at Central Park, especially after JPMorgan Chase recently announced its plan to lease 122,000 square feet of office space at 800 and 825 Tech Center Drive.

Center-Science connector, including the connector street, water, sanitary sewer and the Tech Center-Taylor Road multipurpose trail. City engineer Karl Wetherholt said the four projects would be bundled to be bid under one contract, including the connector street and the sewer extension that would have to be built prior to the road construction. The funding for the sewer would come from the sewer capital-improvements fund.

The Science Boulevard storm outlet provides the storm-sewer outlet to serve the existing school maintenance facility, the Science Boulevard extension, the golf depot and the future development of the lots on the west side of Science Boulevard. Wetherholt said the Tech Center-Taylor bike trail is the last component. “It comes up to Taylor Road and ties into Gahanna Woods,” he said. It will be funded partially through the Clean Ohio Conservation Fund, which also paid for the purchase of the preserve areas in Central Park. Council also approved taking bids for phase 1 of “The Industrial Zone” fiber-extension project. “I’m really excited about the fiber,” Jones said. “I think that will play a major role with business retention. It’s also a tool to attract businesses.” Legislation also has been introduced to enter into a contract with Advanced Civil Design for design work for the Science Boulevard storm outlet, at a cost of $14,000. Additionally, council is

considering a contract with Bird Houk Collaborative for the design of the Science Boulevard landscape plan, at a cost of $13,900. The plan will include screening of the existing school maintenance facility, and the connector is being designed to accommodate a combination of rain gardens and landscape screening. Jones said he’s tremendously excited to continue with the infrastructure plans at Central Park. He told council on April 25 that the city’s available office space has decreased dramatically with the expected addition of Chase. “It’s a primary goal to plan appropriately,” he said. “We need ample land with infrastructure in place. We don’t have that much land available in the community any more. This will allow us to attract large users. This shows we are serious about economic development.”

Zoombezi Bay adds two new water slides By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

An anaconda and python will be added to Zoombezi Bay’s lineup of tides, rapids and twisters. Two new serpentine slides — Anaconda Falls and the Python Plunge — will snake into Zoombezi Bay when the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium water park opens later this month. “Anaconda Falls is unique and different from anything we have in Zoombezi Bay,” said John Gannon, Zoombezi Bay senior vice president. Slide-side research in Florida and Alabama went into picking the two new water rides that will serve as the first major additions to the four-yearold park. “That was a nice day at work. We tested waterslides. Its fun, but it’s a necessary experience because you want something that will be exciting and invigorating,” Gannon said. “We rode slides and picked the best ones.” Anaconda Falls starts in an enclosed “serpentine slide,” Gannon said. “You don’t know if you’re shifting left or right, up or down. You go through the slide and then burst into sunlight and you immediately drop down 30 feet on a steep hill and that carries you up a 30-foot incline that looks like a skateboard ramp.” After a few harrowing moments on the ramp — “There’s no lip, it looks like you could go over the side, but physics won’t allow it,” Gannon said — the riders start traveling downhill backwards and eventually land in the splash pool.

Two new slides — Python Plunge and Anaconda Falls — are under construction at Zoombezi Bay. To see a video of the new slides, visit

The Python Plunge uses the same entry tower and starts with a downhill plunge before shooting uphill then down again. “It’s a watercoaster. It’s like a rollercoaster because you’re going uphill,” Gannon said. “This is the first one at Zoombezi Bay.” Anaconda Falls is like six other slides across the country, but according to

Gannon, the Python Plunge is an original. “It’s a combination of two waterslides,” he said. “The Python Plunge doesn’t exist anywhere else.” Along with offering something new for Zoombezi Bay visitors, Gannon said the new slides are working toward a shorter time in ride lines. “We’re excited to reduce line length

at other slides,” he said. “The new slides have good capacity. A lot of people will be able to ride these in an hour’s time.” The new slithering slides will also sidle up to the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. “Where they are is a strategic move to bring the waterpark closer to the zoo,” Gannon said. “You’ll be able to see these water slides from the zoo

entry plaza…We hope it adds some excitement to a zoo visit. If you’re at Jungle Jack’s Landing you’ll be able to hear screams from the water park.” Bringing the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium attractions closer together will also mean a few animals at Zoombezi Bay. Six macaws will be perched at the Zoombezi Bay entrance and Gannon said from 2 to 3 p.m. every day animals will be brought to the water park that often visit the Late Show with Jack Hannah and make other appearances at schools and events around central Ohio. “We’ll have everything from flamingos walking around to penguins and cheetahs, snakes, bunnies, turtles,” he said. Visitors can get a crack at the new slides and other water rides when Zoombezi Bay opens its doors at 10:30 a.m. May 21. Gannon said visitors can win free tickets to the season openers from 10:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. May 21 and 22 at Kroger by purchasing a Pepsi product. The water park will also be open from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. May 25 to 27, before opening at 10:30 a.m. May 28 for the regular season. Admission to Zoombezi Bay is $25 for children ages 2 to 8 and seniors aged 60 and over, and $33 for ages 10 and up. Admission also includes access to the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. Season passes and reduced rates for zoo members are also available. For more information, look online at

Choral group’s artistic director moving away By KEVIN PARKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

A series of concerts by the Magpie Consort will be the swan song, almost, for the 20-voice choral ensemble’s artistic director. Clintonville resident Sheena Phillips, who came to Columbus from her native Scotland in January 2000 when husband Christopher H. Brew became an assistant professor at Ohio State University, will be moving to the Princeton, N.J., area this summer where Brew has landed another position that’s too good to pass up. Leaving will be a bittersweet experience, Phillips admitted last week. “Very much so,” she said. “It will be a huge wrench to leave all the groups that I’m involved in.” This will be especially true when it comes to the “Magpies,” as members of the a cappella group, who come from Clintonville, Worthing-

ton, Dublin, Hilliard, Old Town East, Westerville, Lewis Center and Galloway, call themselves. Phillips said that her involvement with the group has enabled her to stake the unlikely claim of having made a career of choral music in Columbus. “The Magpies have really been a center of that for me, and in a way the group that’s been the closest to my heart because I’ve got the greatest artistic freedom with them,” Phillips said. “They’ve really become friends. It’s a sad thing to leave it.” She’s scheduled to direct the singing group, which met for the first time in the dining room of David and Karen Carpenter’s Clintonville home in February 1998, for the spring program, titled “The Garden” and debuting for the public on Saturday, May 7. Phillips will close out her career as artistic director for the Magpie Consort (the third definition of the word is “a group of instrumentalists and singers who perform music, especially old music”) when she leads them for the final time a

choral festival set for Saturday, June 4, at 7 p.m. in the First Congregational Church. Phillips said that her departure will not clip the wings of the Magpies, and that the members are working on putting together a job description in preparation for advertising for a new artistic director. “The Magpies intend to continue singing together, and are currently seeking people with an interest in directing the group this fall,” according to the announcement of the spring performances. “I feel certain they will continue in some form,” Phillips said. “Our spring program celebrates birds, flowers and springtime, with a joyful mix of madrigals and lute songs, quiet and rowdy folk song arrangements, medieval spring songs, Janequin’s delightful ‘Le Chant des Oiseaux (Birdsong),’ Japanese poetry and songs about bees, clouds and magpies,” according to the announcement.

Community news Asphalt-recycling center decision tabled The Columbus Board of Zoning Adjustment tabled until May 24 a request for an asphalt-recycling center to operate at 370 Morrison Road, just north of Westbourne Avenue. Gahanna development director Anthony Jones attended an April 26 meeting to oppose the application of Columbus Bituminous Concrete Corp., which is seeking a special permit and zoning variances for the proposed recycling center. Because the proposed asphaltrecycling center would sit just several hundred feet south of Gahanna’s border, Gahanna officials say, it would have an adverse effect on the Office, Commerce and Technology District, as well the Hunters Ridge and Rathburn Woods neighborhoods. Brian Hoyt, Gahanna publicinformation manager, said the Columbus board didn’t have a quorum to discuss or vote on the proposed request during the April meeting, so it tentatively has been

by Greg VanHorssen EXPLAINING HEARING LOSS IN CHILDREN Up to one in every 1,000 children has some kind of serious hearing loss. While approximately half of these cases can be traced to hereditary causes, parents of a child with a hearing loss and none of their own may wonder what caused their child’s hearing impairment. According to new research, the culprit may be a virus that the mother contracted while pregnant. Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is a common virus that infects most people at some point in their lives, but it seldom causes obvious illness. For women who are already infected when they become pregnant, the chances of infecting their unborn children are quite small; women who become infected with CMV while pregnant have a higher chance. At ABSOLUTE HEARING SOLUTIONS, our experienced staff of professionals is committed to providing the highest-quality service in the prevention, assessment, and treatment of hearing disorders. Our facility is equipped with state-of-the-art testing tools, allowing us to best diagnose and treat your hearing symptoms. If you or a family member are not hearing as well as you could, please call us today at 614-654-4309 to schedule a comprehensive hearing exam. On average, our patients travel 40 miles each way to save 25% to 70% on their hearing! We are located at 1000 Morrison Rd., Suite H, Gahanna. We handle Starkey, Phonak, Siemens, Unitron, MicroTech, GN ReSound, Rexton, Oticon, and Widex. Plus, we have the same products as NU-Ear, Audibel, AudioSync, and Miracle Ear, but you will save $1,000’s with us! We take a bite out of the cost of hearing aids!

Gahanna hitting, running to wins By JARROD ULREY ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Fueled by one of the district’s top individuals as well as strong pitching and defense, the Gahanna Lincoln High School softball team went 25-6 overall and was a Division I regional runner-up a year ago. The Lions have used a new formula — one that includes utilizing their overall team speed — to find success this season. Despite having 2010 graduate and Miami University freshman Kayla Ledbetter to lead the way a year ago, Gahanna scored 135 runs last season for an average of 4.3 per game. Through 13 games this season, the Lions had scored 81 runs for an average of 6.2 a game, with the only offensive stumbles coming in a 5-1 loss to Sarasota (Fla.) on March 30 and in a 2-1 loss to Groveport in an OCC-Ohio Division game on April 18. “We’ve been hitting the ball tremendously compared to last year,” junior second baseman Tanya Busby said. “Our bats are definitely doing a lot better. Kayla was definitely a leader who we relied on, but everybody else has gotten so much better this year and everyone is jelling well this year. We all work well together.” Senior Tiyona Marshall, a Miami University signee who had 17 stolen bases a year ago, again has been one of the offense’s key contributors. Marshall bats third in the lineup behind junior leadoff-hitter Montana Fishel and Busby, while senior pitcher Brandis Fishel is hitting cleanup. Juniors Sarah Seidel and Emily Vinsel also have provided strength while batting fifth and sixth, respectively, according to coach Jim Campolo. Through 11 games, Marshall, Montana Fishel and Busby all were batting .500 or better, and the Lions were successful in 23 of 25 stolen-base attempts. “I think part of the key to our offense is our speed,” Campolo said. “We’re pretty much based on our speed, and we do throw a lineup out there where just about everybody can run. The big thing is that we’ve done a better job of moving base runners. “Our top six in the lineup haven’t changed at all during the course of the season. Our first three girls are very, very fast, which again puts tremendous pressure on defenses because they’ve got to control our speed. They’re all good slappers and good bunters. Brandis has been one of our power hitters the last couple years, and the (first) three (in the lineup) do a good job of getting on ahead of her. We depend more on moving runners by bunting than by stealing bases.” After beating Pickerington North 9-3 on April 21, Gahanna was off until April 28 when it beat North 7-1 during the secSee SOFTBALL, page B2

Boys Volleyball

Lions’ Wiles leading by example By KURTIS ADAMS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Lance Wiles of the Gahanna Lincoln High School boys volleyball team doesn’t believe he took a leap of faith last month when he committed to play at Lourdes College, a Franciscan school in Sylvania that will begin playing men’s volleyball next spring. “Not at all,” the 6-foot-8, 210-pound senior middle hitter said. “I believe in my coaches.” Wiles said he was encouraged to become the NAIA school’s first commitment by his club coach, Randy Cline, who works with Lourdes assistant Mike Froelich. A part-time Columbus resident, Froelich serves as director of operations for the Elite Volleyball Train-

ing Center in Plain City, where Wiles plays club ball. “It’s a great opportunity for Lance,” Gahanna coach Mike Sage said. “Being 6-8 helps, of course, but I think they also liked his work ethic and his aggressiveness at the net. “He’s the kind of guy who is always in the gym working to get better. Our whole group is like that, really. If we have a 5 o’clock practice, they’ll be there at 3:30 or 4 ready to get started. I have to chase those guys out of the gym sometimes. Volleyball isn’t a ‘me’ sport, and Lance and the rest of the team have really embraced that.” Such attitudes have helped the Lions develop into one of the top teams in the Division I East Region. They were ranked fourth in the regional poll last week be-

hind Hilliard Darby, Hilliard Davidson and Mount Vernon, which ended Gahanna’s eight-match winning streak with a 25-18, 28-26, 33-31 victory on April 21. The Lions rebounded to win their next two OCC-Capital Division matches to improve to 13-6 overall and 6-2 in the league before playing Pickerington North on May 3. Mount Vernon, which swept the season series with Gahanna, led the OCC-Capital with an 8-0 mark before playing Pickerington Central on May 3. The Yellow Jackets were ranked ninth in the state poll last week. The Lions lost three of their first four matches and were 3-5 overall before their turnaround. Sergio Bruyako, a junior middle hitter, rejoined the lineup just as the team’s winning streak was gathering steam with

a 25-18, 25-22, 25-17 victory over Pickerington North on April 12. His return enabled 5-6 senior Jerry Vo, who is one of the smallest players in the OCC-Capital, to return to his natural position as the team’s libero. About the same time junior right-side hitter Jonathan Harrison returned to the lineup after suffering a broken finger that also required five stitches. “We’ve really improved defensively,” Sage said. “Volleyball is all about passing, and that’s been one of the keys for us getting better defensively.” Through 18 matches, Vo was leading the team in digs (110) and service aces (15) and Josh Gruenbaum and Michael Tobin were averaging 3.5 and 3.4 kills per See VOLLEY, page B2

Gahanna Christian Roundup

Boys volleyball team showing improvement By FRANK DiRENNA ThisWeek Community Newspapers

By Steve Friend/ThisWeek

Gahanna Christian’s Gina McGrath lunges to tag out Brooke Warner of Grove City Christian as teammate Tori Williams looks on during a MOCAL game April 29. Gahanna Christian lost 17-0 in five innings.

After watching his team win just one match last season, Gahanna Christian Academy boys volleyball coach Nate Kirk believed it would improve on that performance this spring. The Eagles have not only bettered that win total, they have been competitive in several of their losses. Gahanna Christian entered the week 3-10 overall and 2-5 in the Central Ohio Volleyball League. Last season, it finished 1-16 overall and 1-9 in the COVL. “I’m real happy with the way things are going,” Kirk said.

“The matches that we have lost have been far closer than they ever were last year. We’re in the matches this year. We’re not out of them like we have been in the past. I’m very pleased. It’s a big improvement.” Kirk called a five-game match against DeSales on April 12 a highlight of the season, as the Eagles rallied from a twogame deficit to win 21-25, 1825, 25-18, 25-21, 15-12. “DeSales is usually a team that beats us,” he said. “We were real surprised that we won. It was a really good win for us.” Gahanna Christian posted its other victories against Licking See EAGLES, page B2

The champions of the Worthington Cup tennis tournament usually are the players who are strongest in all facets of their games that particular day. For Dublin Jerome High School’s Sean Stein, who won the doubles title with teammate Kent Seitz, that meant his kick serve was on target in the final on April 30 at Worthington Kilbourne. For Thomas Worthington’s Casey Cempre, who won the singles title, that meant the rediscovery of his backhand. “I’ve been really getting my kick serve in,” Stein said. “I’ve been working on that serve for the last 10 years and it’s probably the best part of my game. I can always rely on my serve.” Stein and Seitz used strong serving to defeat Gahanna’s Canyon Teague and Jesse Shivener 6-4, 6-3 to capture the doubles championship. Their title, coupled with Jerome’s Frank Kuo placing third in singles with an 8-1 win over Olentangy Liberty’s Vick Chhabria, gave the Celtics their first Worthington Cup championship. Jerome scored 15 points to finish ahead of Thomas (12), Liberty (11), Upper Arlington (11), Gahanna (8), St. Charles (7), Kilbourne (6) and Hilliard Davidson (4). Seitz and Stein hope to follow the path of UA’s Stu Little and Billy Weldon, who won the Worthington Cup last year and went on to win Division I sectional, district and state titles. The past two years, three of the top four finishers in the Division I state doubles tournament played in the Worthington Cup. “This means a lot,” Stein said. “People were talking about whomever wins this tournament

We’ve gotten our confidence back.” To win the Worthington Cup title, Seitz and Stein had to hold off Teague and Shivener, who defeated UA’s Weldon and Eric Vannatta 10-6 in the first round. “It’s definitely a big step. We’ve never been invited to the Worthington Cup in my four years,” Shivener said. “For us to come in and place second in the event definitely makes a statement.” “I just think we came ready to play,” Teague said. “We’ve been talking about the Cup for a while now. It’s my first time here and my first time playing with Jesse, and beating UA was pretty big for us. We just had fun and everything went well.” Also in doubles, Liberty’s Mitchell Lothes and Alexander Hathaway defeated St. Charles’ Grant Dolven and Weston Nier- meyer 9-7 to place third. Wel-

don and Vannatta defeated Thomas’ Mark Evans and Harrison Chang 8-5 to place fifth, and Kilbourne’s Sam Lazaroff and Roger Juang defeated Davidson’s Zach Page and Greg Tiffan 8-0 to place seventh. Cempre maintained Worthington’s four-year tradition of winning the singles title of the Worthington Cup, as he defeated Little 4-6, 6-4, 10-6 in the final. Cempre said he had struggled with his backhand the week leading up to the event, particularly in a 6-1, 6-2 loss to Weldon during the Cardinals’ 4-1 loss to the Golden Bears on April 27. “The biggest thing was I could make my backhand,” Cempre said. “Usually my backhand is a pretty good, but the last week I have struggled with keeping my backhand in court. I think just because it’s the Worthington Cup, I played better.” Considering how well he and Weldon played together last year, Little was sort of a surprise entrant in singles. However, Little and Weldon plan on playing doubles in the postseason. Little said the Worthington Cup was a good tuneup for the OCC-Central Division tournament on Saturday, May 7, at Davidson and the postseason. “OCCs are big,” Little said. “We have a great tradition of winning the league and a lot of the top teams in our conference were here. It’s good to get a feel on how everyone is playing.” Also in singles, Kilbourne’s Brian Aguirre defeated Davidson’s Spencer Walter 9-7 for fifth and St. Charles’ Dennis Gleason defeated Gahanna’s Stephen Cheng 8-1 for seventh.
