Overtime cuts concern UA firefighters By ANDREW MILLER ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The new contract with the Upper Arlington Fire Division includes options to reduce manpower, and city administrators are exercising those options to reduce overtime costs. “When a firefighter calls in sick or has vacation during the daytime shift (7:30

a.m. to 5:30 p.m.), we are opting not to call in another firefighter to fill in using overtime,” fire chief Jeff Young said. “During daytime hours, we have easier access to assistance (from other fire departments) than during night shifts, if we need it.” Under previous union contracts, the minimum-manning clause for emergency medical services was three firefighters to a medic truck and four to an engine or

ladder truck. The current contract, which was approved by city council and the union in February, allows a minimum manning of two firefighters per medic truck — one to drive and one to attend to a patient in the back. And that isn’t always a good situation, according to Lt. Jim Mild, president of IAFF Local 1521, the firefighters’union. “Having just one person in the back

(of the truck) can’t provide medical attention as well as two, and it takes two people to carry a stretcher alone, so there will be times when a patient is alone and isn’t receiving treatment because the firefighters are just trying to move equipment,” Mild said. According to Mild, the union accepted this lower level of manning so members would not lose the minimum-man-

ning language entirely. “We believed that the intention of the city was only to use this reduction in a fiscal emergency, not as a proactive financial savings,” Mild said. In 2010, the city fire division spent $350,000 in unscheduled overtime and $283,000 in scheduled overtime (required See FIREFIGHTERS, page A3

Rainy spring slows down AEP’s Lane Avenue job

Donors get first peek at finished Mirolo barn

By GARY BUDZAK ThisWeek Community Newspapers

By ANDREW MILLER ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The new Amelita Mirolo Barn at Sunny 95 Park came to life the evening of April 26, as the Upper Arlington Community Foundation welcomed those whose donations made the facility possible. “It’s exciting to be a part of preserving UA’s history. This will serve as a pillar to remind future generations of our community’s past,” said Erik Yassenoff, city council member. Nearly 150 of the more than 250 donors attended the invitation-only event — the first of what the city and the community foundation hope to be many over the life of the facility. “The timber framers who came from as far away as Oregon to resurrect this nearly 200-year-old By Chris Parker/ThisWeek structure have given us something new that has the potential of serv- Guests mingle and inspect the interior of the Amelita Mirolo Barn during the Upper Arlington See BARN, page A2 Community Foundation’s completion celebration April 26.

The American Electric Power underground electric utility line installation project on Lane Avenue was expected to reach Upper Arlington this week, weather permitting. “They did end up being delayed a bit by weather,” said city spokeswoman Emma Speight on April 29. “From what I understand, they believe they will be close to or at the North Star intersection by May 4 or 5.” The orange barrels are out along Lane Avenue, but record rainfall in April put a damper on the project’s scheduled April 25 resumption within Arlington. “The contractor and AEP have adjusted the schedule several times, but now they seem to be moving along pretty well,” said Bob Darragh, project manager for CT Consultants, Inc., which will inspect the work of Cuny Construction and Excavating. Trenching work along the southernmost lane will be done, with installation of the electric and fiber optic cable conduit to follow along the entire length of Lane Avenue. Next year, the roadway will be resurfaced. The project was postponed with-

Leadership UA honors contributions of Readey, Borders By MICHAEL J. MAURER ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Leadership UA graduated the Class of 2011 and honored two local leaders at its annual awards event May 3 at Scioto Country Club. Linda Readey, who recently stepped down as executive director of the Upper Arlington Community Foundation, received the Margine Moul Award. The program’s Service to Youth Award went to Mike Borders for his years of work with local Special Olympics teams. Along with Moul, Readey was one of the first volunteers when Leadership UA was founded in

the late 1980s. Readey said she has attended many Leadership UA celebrations, but this is the first time she has been herself recognized. “It’s kind of surreal,” Readey said. “I did not ever expect to be honored, and it’s nice to have that recognition. I have volunteered my whole life, 30 years in Arlington. Now I live about 500 feet outside Upper Arlington, but I still feel affiliated with this community.” Readey is particularly happy with the completion of the Amelita Mirolo Barn in Sunny 95 Park, which became the signature project of the community foundation. “It’s just nice to have people

Council discusses hiring firm to conduct Lane Avenue study By CHRIS BOURNEA ThisWeek Community Newspapers

After a lengthy discussion at Monday night’s conference session, Upper Arlington City Council decided to delay until its May 9 meeting a vote on hiring Los Angeles-based consulting firm AECOM to conduct a Lane Avenue corridor transportation study. In recent months, residents on Brandon and Chester roads have complained to city officials that patrons of the Arlington Commons, especially the Wine Bistro at 1750 W. Lane Ave., have been parking in front of their houses and creating congestion and noise. Council voted 4-3 on April 25

against reinstalling “Parking-byPermit” signs on the two streets. The purpose of the transportation study is to evaluate current and future traffic and parking conditions on Lane Avenue and devise solutions as further development occurs, said assistant city manager Joe Valentino. “We need to look at parking, we need to look at traffic movement from Northwest Boulevard to North Star (Road),” Valentino said. “With the high school being just two blocks away, we don’t want to push the problem up there.” Valentino said AECOM consultants are knowledgeable of the area, having previously conducted a study of congestion issues in

the Tremont Road/London Drive vicinity. Valentino recommends that council approve a contract with AECOM in an amount not to exceed $65,450 and a 10-percent contingency fee or $5,950 to cover travel expenses for AECOM consultants to conduct additional public meetings. Council member Wade Steen said he would like to receive more details about the contract, including how many hours AECOM consultants expect to bill the city for. Council members and residents at Monday’s conference session discussed several potential solutions to the Brandon and Chester roads parking problems. Council member Debbie John-

son suggested installing signs in the Arlington Commons parking lot allowing left turns only at the Brandon Road exit and right turns only at the Chester Road exit to prevent traffic from streaming onto those streets. Council president Frank Ciotola suggested forming a task force that could examine the issue in a comprehensive way, similar to the historic preservation task force the city formed in 2007. Brandon Road resident Tricia Kershner said a task force would help clear up misinformation and rumors that have been circulating. “I feel like a task force would make so much sense,” Kershner said. “Then the stories would be straight.”

City manager Virginia Barney suggested that council evaluate the public input that will be included in the corridor study before moving forward with the task force. City attorney Jeanine Hummer said city staff is also exploring the possibility of allowing parking on Lane Avenue in the evenings. Hummer said her staff is still negotiating the contract with AECOM and will hammer out details requested by council in time for council’s May 9 meeting. In other business Monday night, council members discussed addi-

DressUp for summerSale

BARN Continued from page A1 ing our community for another 200 years,” Parks and Recreation Director Tim Moloney said. Last September, more than 25 volunteers from the Timber Framers Guild, along with volunteers from the Friends of Ohio Barns, restored the circa 1838 Legg barn and built the framing of the new section, which includes the event hall, a catering kitchen, restrooms and storage. Outside is an amphitheater and memorial garden. The city has begun accepting reservations for private events at the facility, with a first available date of July 1. Public events already scheduled for the facility begin with Spring Fling from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. May 21, and include the Cultural Arts Division’s Music in the Parks summer concert series. “We’re so grateful for the partnership with UA Arts, the Northwest Kiwanis and the community foundation that made it possible to have a permanent home for our concert series,” said Lynette Santoro-Au, cultural arts manager, at the April 26 ceremony. Community foundation board member David Edwards Jr. chaired the barn construction committee and was able to recruit support from the construction community. All of the design work for the barn was done gratis, Edwards said, and much of the labor and material was provided at cost or for free. “The project was done ahead of schedule and under budget. This just goes to show what can happen with good planning and communities coming together,” Edwards said. “Both the construction community and the community of Upper Arlington should be very proud of this project.” City officials and community foundation members agreed that this project has been a triumph of community collaboration. “Have you ever received a gift so big you can’t wrap your arms around it?” city manager Virginia Barney asked. “Not just the structure but the partnerships and working together. This is the greatest gift our community could have — the partnerships and collaboration made today happen.” The barn will officially open to the public at the city’s Spring Fling event, where, at noon, the community foundation will hold a ceremony to turn over the keys to the barn to the city. “It’s real, it’s here and you can enjoy it now,” said Sue Ralph, community foundation executive director. The community foundation continues to collect donations for the final $125,000 to complete the funding of the barn project. Donations can be made directly at

tional amendments to legislation that would allow alcohol service at the Amelita Mirolo Barn in Sunny 95 Park. In response to residents’ concerns, council agreed on additional restrictions: allowing alcohol to be consumed only inside the barn and not outside of the structure and limiting alcohol service to 5 to 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. Alcohol service would also be allowed on legal holidays that fall on Sundays. The third and final reading and a council vote on the ordinance allowing alcohol service at the barn is scheduled for May 9.

Sandwich Stroll is moving to Sunny 95 Park By ANDREW MILLER ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Upper Arlington Commission on Aging’s Sandwich Stroll returns this year at a new location: Sunny 95 Park. The move from last year’s site at Fancyburg Park will give Upper Arlington seniors an opportunity to experience the new Amelita Mirolo Barn facilities following their walk, which takes place, rain or shine, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 7, at Sunny 95 Park (4395 Carriage Hill Lane). A popular event on the Commission on Aging and Senior Center calendar, last year’s stroll drew more than 150 senior participants, according to executive director Amy Schossler. “This is our third stroll and each year it has grown by 50 percent. Last year, it was pouring rain and we still had 150 seniors

show up,” Schossler said. “We’re expecting better weather this year and upwards of 250 participants.” The Sandwich Stroll provides seniors and their families with a set course through one of the city’s public parks, stopping along the way to collect information about healthy living and local senior services from the 20 community partners who sponsor the event. As they go, they collect the food items that will make up their picnic lunch. Food is being provided by McDonald’s and Dave’s Dogs and will include a drink, snacks and a sandwich. Participants will receive a reusable lunch bag/backpack to carry their food and the informational materials they pick up during the walk. The event is designed to give seniors a better understanding of the Upper Arlington park system and increase their awareness of the importance of fitness and well-

ness while aging — all in a fun and social atmosphere. “The stroll is a great way to encourage seniors to exercise and socialize while enjoying the beauty of the park,” Schossler said. “Participants are welcome to come and go throughout the event. It’s casual and fun and everyone is welcome.” At the end of the walk, the seniors will gather in the Amelita Mirolo Barn to sit and enjoy their lunch with family and friends, as well as enjoying live banjo music and entertainment. Registration for the event is required. The stroll is free for members of the SilverSneakers program and is $5 for all other participants, who do not have to be seniors or Senior Center members to participate. To register or receive more information, call the Upper Arlington Senior Center at (614) 583-5320.

Firefighters concerned about overtime cuts Continued from page A1 by the Fair Labor Standards Act for 24-hour-on, 48-hours-off schedules), according to city finance director Cathe Armstrong. With the changes under the new contract, which also include a reduction in overtime pay from double time to time-and-a-half, Armstrong said the city anticipates saving at least $230,000. City and union officials both expressed concern about continuing to meet residents’ expectations for service. “Part of being a good steward of public resources is knowing when to be proactive and not just being reactive,” assistant city manager Joe Valentino said. “If we can track these things and make adjustments instead of hitting the

panic button when there is a (fiscal) emergency, then we can make sure we continue to provide service levels residents expect.” But Mild said he believes that the reduction in overtime pay should be the primary source of savings, and that the reduction in overtime is detrimental to service. “With the reduction in manning, we have to bring a ladder or engine truck. That ties up even more firefighters and equipment for something we used to do with just a medic truck,” Mild said. “Also, national standards require 15 firefighters on scene at a fire in nine minutes, but with only 13 firefighters working under the current agreement, we can’t meet that standard.” One rotation has a vacancy as a result of the hiring freeze, while

another is affected by two injured firefighters. Between April 15 and 21, three of the seven daytime shifts were affected by the change, according to Young. “We have to manage our overtime along with services. On basic life support, like a broken bone, we are comfortable with only sending two firefighters if we aren’t at full staff,” Young said. “On advanced life support, like a heart attack, we’ll send two trucks, which is six firefighters on scene,” he said. “Fortunately, we’re so close to the hospitals that this won’t tie up resources for a long period of time.” City administrators and city council expect Young to continue to manage overtime expenditures this way in the future. “We really examined this over-

time piece and how we could control costs while continuing services. We’ve asked Chief Young to control these costs, and he’s being held accountable for that,”Valentino said.

Have You Heard? 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!

Residents of Brandon seek council support To the editor: I am writing regarding the horrendous parking problems that the residents of Brandon and Chester roads are suffering. Since the Wine Bistro opened, we have had employees and patrons parking in front of our homes, sometimes making it impossible to get in or out of our driveways. It is a safety hazard having the commercial overflow parking on the residential street. Cars circle the block constantly, pull in and out of our driveways turning around to try to get a good spot to park. Children can’t play on the sidewalk or in their yards. Residents pleaded with council members to get the Parkingby-Permit signs returned, since it is a codified ordinance. Several members were more concerned about the “possible” harm it may do to the Wine Bistro than with the actual harm it is doing the residents and our quality of life in our neighborhood. The residents on Brandon and Chester have worked in good faith with the developer (who also owns the Wine Bistro) and the city and were told that we would not be impacted. That is far from the truth. (City attorney Jeanine) Hummer suggested that our streets be painted with parking spots so only a few cars can park in front of our houses. Really? Our homes are already devalued due to the commercial building. She said there is not anywhere else that has Parking-by-Permit signs so Ms. (city manager Virginia) Barney wants to take the ordinance off the books. There also is not anywhere in UA that has parking spots in front of their homes either, or commercial property without a buffer. We have had to fight to get the city to uphold the ordinance which they will not do for the last four years. I am for business in UA, but I expect them to be responsible business owners and not at the expense of the residents that were there first. And I expect my city council to listen to residents and not the “buck.” Susan Blalock Upper Arlington

Parking-by-Permit signs should return To the editor: I am a former resident of Brandon Road and lived there when it was rezoned “mixed use” in 2002. I was not notified by direct mail, phone call, or email by any city staff or department of this rezoning. Since then, the Arlington Commons development has changed the quality of life for the residents of Brandon and Chester Road for the worse. The traffic and parking, recommended by city staff and approved by BZAP, is not sufficient. These people have been forced into a situation where they must now defend the safety of their neighborhood with very little city support. Brandon and Chester roads have a dangerous situation on the streets Now, in addition to the high school traffic, their homes are over topped and overrun with parked cars from the

development. The safety of their children is at risk with the driveway turn-arounds and constant circling of traffic around the block in search of parking spots. Our city council — our elected officials — need to be representing these residents and fighting for their right to have the Parking-by-Permit signs returned. Codified ordinance 311.07 states that these roads have “Parking By Permit Only.” I find it suspicious that it was not until these residents asked for the signs to be returned that the city manager recommended to council to remove this ordinance from the city code. Surprisingly, the majority of council is supporting the developers and ignoring the residents. Come to the city council meeting May 9 and May 23 and help your neighbors fight to be heard. Our elected officials need to be supportive of our residents in this area of redevelopment. That is the reason they were elected. Enforce Parking-by-Permit only. Return the signs and protect our neighbors. Mike Schadek Upper Arlington

Thanks for outpouring of support for event To the editor: I want to say thank you to all the wonderful members of the UA community who helped make the Path for Peace 5K/Fun Run to benefit the Solly and Sammy Foundation for Peace such an amazing success. As I started the project, I found support from my Doone Road neighbors, who, in addition to donating financially, came out to volunteer on the day of the

event with so much kindness and enthusiasm. Our community businesses sponsored generously — Arlington Bank, Favret Heating and Cooling, the Wagenbrenner Company, SchoolPride Ltd., Bruegger’s Bagels and Schmidt’s Sausage Haus — as did the neighboring street of Essex Road. Thank you also to those who donated for our raffle: FrontRunner, Carsonies, Larson’s Toys and Kenneth’s Hair Salon. Most personally, I have to thank Susan Brewer, who gave her time and talent to help make this event possible. It is comforting to know that although a tragedy hurt one of our own, the goodness of Upper Arlington, and others all over central Ohio, came together to offer love and support for Sarah and the memory of her precious boys.

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-today operations.

Library job fair offers tips on search for employment By KIM TOLLEY This Week Community Newspapers

Approximately 500 central Ohioans took advantage of a recent job fair that provided job seekers with an opportunity to speak with representatives of 58 organizations. The job fair was sponsored by seven library districts, including Upper Arlington, Columbus, Grandview and Westerville. “It was very successful,” said Ruth McNeil of the Upper Arlington Public Library. “The job seekers packed the room for tips on resume writing and career planning.” Participants in the job fair gave it high marks for providing helpful information in their search. Allison Plunkett, a career counselor at Ohio State University, shared interviewing techniques. “I saw a lot of middle aged adults who are returning to the work force, but I also saw people straight out of high school,” she said. “I suggest that people em-

phasize their unique strengths and connect with the interviewer.” Plunkett said the biggest questions she heard at the fair pertained to marketability. “Generally, they want to know how do I write a resume that’s relevant to the marketplace or how do I sell skills to employers,” she said. “It’s a matter of showcasing transferable skills.” Fred Points, a presenter from Jewish Family Services who talked about resume writing, said that he spoke with many people at the fair who committed the typical errors. “People don’t realize a resume is a marketing tool,” he said. “Often people have no idea how to quantify their accomplishments. For the more mature worker, the whole nature of resumes has changed. Today, recruiters are looking for more polish. They want more assertive candidates who have researched the companies.” According to Points, job seekers should attend job fairs with a plan and make a first strong im-

pression. The difference, he said, Networking is a skill that has the knowledge of how to network says job seekers should define netcould affect whether one is di- increased in importance during a effectively. working as an exchange of inforrected toward the company web- job search, yet many people lack Presenter Sharon Hamersley mation for mutual benefit. site or actually receives the recruiter’s contact information. “Looking for work is a full-time job,” he stated. “The key for a job seeker is a willingness to do homework. They can’t go to a job fair with one resume for all companies. The resume has to be tailored.” Kathy Hopwood, an attendee who referred to herself as recently unemployed, said she believed that the job fair was helpful. “The library did an excellent job of providing information,” she said. “The fact that it was free was helpful too.” Hopwood attended presentations on interviewing and resumes and received information on current resume techniques and styles. “I didn’t know what to expect but I was very impressed with the speakers,” she said adding that she’s willing to be flexible in companies and positions that she will consider.

Commission on Aging

Getting married?

After 30 years, group continues to refine services for UA seniors By GARY BUDZAK ThisWeek Community Newspapers

“It’s really one of the best-kept secrets, unfortunately, in the community,” city council member Erik Yassenoff said of Upper Arlington’s Commission on Aging. The commission, which will celebrate its 30th anniversary next month, offers a number of programs to help UA residents 60 and older, including “Senior Service Saturdays.” From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the second Saturday of the month, April through December, volunteers from church, school and service organizations will help local seniors do chores in and around the house, like garden weeding, flipping mattresses and changing smoke detector batteries. At a recent meeting, Becky Converse of Leadership UA showed some of the 17 commission members newly printed literature on Senior Service Saturdays that seniors can pick up at the libraries, municipal and senior centers. “It was a program we had, but it was floundering,” commission director Amy Schossler said of Senior Service Saturdays. “We were

just not able to organize it in a cohesive way, and to really get the word out about it.” This year’s class of Leadership UA, however, chose the program for its class project, putting together marketing materials and getting volunteer groups to give of their time. On the first Senior Service Saturday (April 9), for example, the Citizens Police Academy alumni helped, and on May 7 it will be members of the Tri-Village Lions Club. “We want people to be able to take advantage of it,” Schossler said. “It’s a horrible thing when you have a group of volunteers who want to help, and then you don’t have any seniors who know about the program, so nobody’s asking for help. We really want seniors to know it’s here and they can count on it, get the help they need.” Schossler said the commission is “a good fit for being able to provide a community service and work with older adults in Upper Arlington.” Those services include things like Kind Call and Project Lifesaver. “A huge percentage of our population is seniors, and there are services that we can

help them be aware of so that they can stay in the community that they love, and that’s been home for so long,” Schossler said. In her seventh year on the commission, Schossler said “the commission just continues to be more active every year. We have a terrific group of volunteer board members who are very enthusiastic about getting services out in the community. So each year we have new services and programs while continuing to provide the ones that have been in place for years. It’s continually growing and changing with the needs of the older adult population.” Yassenoff, who serves as city council liaison, said the Commission on Aging has expanded its scope over the past couple of years and taken on more responsibility. “I think every community really needs a commission like this,” Yassenoff said. “It just shows how much the community cares about all segments of our community that we have a commission like this. It’s finding solutions to situations or problems that other communities aren’t.” For more information, call 614-583-5326 or email

LEADERSHIP Continued from page A1 Margine Moul introduced Readey. “The woman never stops,” Moul said. Readey especially thanked her husband of 42 years, Jim Readey. “It makes it easier to say yes when you know you will receive support at home,” Readey said. Dr. Debora Binkley, associate superintendent of Upper Arlington City Schools, presented the Service to Youth award to volunteer Special Olympics coach Mike Borders. “We’re here because 19 years ago Mike was invited to help with Special Olympics,” Binkley said. “The acceptance of that invitation was life changing.” A longtime employee of the school district in the maintenance department, Borders has volunteered in soccer, track, softball and basketball and has mentored hundreds of athletes and coaches. “It is evident that Coach Mike loves what he does,” Binkley said. “He volunteers hundreds of hours each year to working with students. He takes time to

learn about each person and know what their potential is. He is able to put everyone at ease so they can focus on the fun of playing the sport.” In 2006, Borders’ team won the state basketball championship. Josh Valentino, 21, said he began in Special Olympics when he was 8. “Mike’s a nice guy, a good sports guy,” Valentino said. “He loves sports and I really appreciate that. He deserved to be honored tonight. I can feel it right now.” Valentino’s mother Peggy said Borders has a knack for individual attention. “He’s not just a coach who says, ‘Stay inside the line’,” Peggy Valentino said. “He says, ‘This is how you behave. Did you say thank you?’ It’s beyond the structure of athletics to the character of the kids, and that’s impressive.” Binkley said the students have also recognized Borders. “Special Olympics has a float each year and Mike can be seen walking beside it,” Binkley said. “One year the theme of the float was ‘Be like Mike’.”

Event Older adults topic of tonight’s talk The Master Plan Community Facilities and Services Ad Hoc Committee of Upper Arlington City Council will host a Community Conversation relative to the needs of the city’s senior population today (Thursday, May 5) from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Municipal Services Center, 3600 Tremont Road.

Participants will explore current and future needs of older adults, relative to community facilities and resources, citywide service delivery, and the quality of life in Upper Arlington.

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

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

Cuco’s Taqueria 2162 Henderson Road, Upper Arlington 614-538-8701

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.”

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-year-old 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. 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

Boys Volleyball

Inexperienced Bears making progress By PATRICK DOLAN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Although victories have been hard to come by this season, Upper Arlington High School boys volleyball coach Matt Wion believes his team is making progress. The Golden Bears were 2-10 overall and 1-7 in the OCC-Ohio Division before playing Thomas Worthington on May 3. “We’re developing and getting better each and every day,” Wion said. “We

want to continue to develop. We’re not giving up on the season by any means, but we’re trying to build for the future.” UA, which hasn’t had a winning season since 2005, began the season with only three players with varsity experience in seniors Dan Anugerah (outside hitter) and Mark Finneran (libero) and junior Michael Schroer (setter/outside hitter), and only Finneran and Schroer saw significant playing time last year. “We have several guys who didn’t know how to move, how to rotate, and they had to learn how to communicate

on the court,” Wion said. “It takes all six players to communicate, to be moving as one to be successful, and they’re finding that out.” “We’re young and inexperienced,” Finneran said. “The first couple practices, people weren’t sure how to rotate. But everyone has done a good job learning their roles quickly. They’re adapting quickly.” Finneran said it also took time for the Bears to adjust to not having Andrew Craine in their lineup. A 6-foot-6 middle hitter/setter who graduated in 2010,

Craine was first-team all-league and allregion last season. He is playing at Lewis University in Romeoville, Ill. “We lost Andrew Craine, a Division I (college) player. He was a great player and a great leader,” Finneran said. “When you lose a player of that magnitude, there’s going to be a transition.” Wion said Finneran and Schroer have done a good job leading the younger players as team captains. “I play exclusively in the back row, so I try to quarterback from the back row the best I can,” Finneran said.

In addition to Finneran and Schroer, Wion said senior middle hitter Michael Kilstrom and sophomore opposite hitter/setter Paul Linville have been among the team’s top players this season. Kilstrom is a first-year player. Not only has UA had to adjust to having many inexperienced players in its lineup, it has faced a challenging schedule being in the OCC-Ohio with Dublin Coffman, Hilliard Darby, Hilliard Davidson, Thomas and Worthington Kilbourne.

Track & Field

UA teams eager for home invitational By PAUL BATTERSON ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Upper Arlington High School junior Frank Epitropoulos knows how important the Larkin/ Crosten Invitational is to the boys and girls track and field teams. The Golden Bears’ annual meet will be held Friday, May 6, and features Dublin Coffman, Dublin Scioto, Lancaster, Northland, Pickerington North, Reynoldsburg and Watterson. Reynoldsburg’s girls team has won the past two Division I state titles. “Since it’s a home meet, we have a bunch of people coming to watch us,” Epitropoulos said. “We have a young team, but I think we’re going to do well.” “We take a lot of pride in that event,” UA girls coach Joel Cutler said. “It’s our senior night and one of the last home meets for our athletes. We want to send them off right.” The meet honors Richard Larkin, who coached the boys

team from 1930-67, and Marv Crosten, who coached the boys team from 1968-72 and the girls team from 1979-85. The girls team competes in the Crosten Invitational and the boys team competes in the Larkin Invitational. Cutler said the level of talent will help prepare the Bears for the OCC-Central Division meet, which will be held May 12 and 14 at Hilliard Bradley. The competition in the meet seems to bring out the best in Epitropoulos, as last year he anchored the 800-meter relay to a second-place finish (1 minute, 34.08 seconds). Also on the relay were junior Ryan McSheffery, senior Andrew Mariotti and junior Jack Trabue. “That was the meet where everything finally came together for (the 800 relay) last year,” Epitropoulos said. “We had one of our best races and we ended up coming in second.” Last week, Epitropoulos made a verbal commitment to play

football for Ohio State. The son of former Ohio State player John Epitropoulos, he caught 28 passes for 463 yards and five touchdowns as a wide receiver, averaged 42.2 yards on 29 punts and had 55 tackles and two interceptions as a defensive back for the football team last fall, as the Bears went 6-4. “Track helps you with your speed and technique and that translates onto the football field,” said Epitropoulos, who also anchors the 1,600 relay and competes in the long jump and 110 hurdles. Last spring, Epitropoulos won the OCC-Central title in the long jump by jumping 21 feet, 3 1/2 inches and placed third in the Division I district 3 meet (21-2 3/4) before finishing ninth at regional (20-3 1/2). His season best entering this week was 20-3 1/2, which he jumped in a dual meet against Hilliard Davidson on April 26 and matched in the Gary See TRACK, page C3

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 and her spe- LARRY cialty, 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. Talk about credentials. “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 Rey-noldsburg 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. “Like most young runners, I started as a sprinter at Reynoldsburg Junior High, but at the end of my seventh-grade year I began running the 800 and have never stopped. When I finished fourth in the state as a freshman it boosted my confidence, and winning See LARSON, page C3

Because the Wellington School does not have a junior varsity girls lacrosse team, freshman defender Mallory Tannous has had to adjust to playing at the varsity level on the fly. “It’s been kind of hard,” said Tannous, one of seven freshmen playing significant minutes. “The middle school game was so different. The hardest thing to get used to is the checking and the speed of the game. Everything’s a lot faster than (in) middle school.” Coach Liz Clapacs said the freshmen have been catching on quickly. The Jaguars had a stretch last week in which they played three games in as many days, defeating DeSales 13-6 on April 28, beating Cincinnati Seven Hills 14-6 on April 29 and losing to Cincinnati Summit Country Day 13-11 on April 30. Against DeSales, the Jaguars led 4-3 at halftime before outscoring the Stallions 9-3 in the second half. “These freshmen are coming in from the middle school level and since we don’t have a junior varsity team to continue that de-

were a little more nervous and intimidated at first, but they’re starting to come together.” The Jaguars pulled out close wins during the first half of the season, beating Hartley 10-9 on April 12, Watterson 10-8 on April 13 and Gates Mills Hawken 1413 in overtime on April 16. Clapacs credited the team’s upperclassmen with helping the younger players through the beginning of the season. “They’ve brought in the new players and helped mold them,” Clapacs said. “They’ve gotten them to understand the level they have to practice and play at.” Senior midfielder Grace Korandovich has been impressed with the way the younger players have accepted their roles. “You try to mentor them and show them what they can be,” Korandovich said. “Going from middle school to high school is a big jump, but they’ve taken on their roles. They’re becoming more like one of the team.” Wellington will play host to Cincinnati Seton in the first round of the Division II South-Central district tournament on May 19, with the winner playing at Cincin-

Celtics capture first Worthington Cup championship By PAUL BATTERSON ThisWeek Community Newspapers

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 At a glance the Celtics their first Worthington Cup championship.

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 keep-

ing 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.

Continued from page C1 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. “I have grown to really love track. I love the freedom you get when you are out on the track. It is so much about you and how you have trained and how you have used the support you have received. Running is fun and what a chance it has given me to meet people all over the world. It has opened so many doors for me and it has given me the confidence I need to do well in life. Through sports you learn to not get discouraged and to use anything negative that happens for motivation to get better. I love to race and have great respect for everyone that competes with me.” Those who have watched Cordell run this year can tell you that she has plenty of competition — it’s just usually running behind her. I’ll see you at a meet.

Smith Invitational on April 30 at Thomas Worthington to place seventh. “It’s been raining a lot, so I haven’t been able to get back (to last year’s distances),” Epitropoulos said. “Once the weather gets better, I’ll get back in the 21s.” “I feel bad for these kids,” Cutler said. “With the weather being like it has been, it’s hard to keep moving forward. We’ve had real inconsistency with our field events.” Cutler, who coaches the sprinters for the boys and girls teams, said Epitropoulos brings toughness to the team. “I’ve known Frank since he was in second or third grade at Greensview Elementary,” Cutler said. “He brings a certain kind of toughness over to practice. He’s ready to go in all types of weather. He doesn’t have to say a lot, but when the lights on, he brings a little bit of that ‘wow’ factor to our team.”

UA’s Mark Finneran said the team leaders are stressing younger players to give 100 percent in practice and games.

Continued from page C1 Last week, Davidson and Darby were ranked fifth and eighth, respectively, in the Division I state poll and Darby (first), Davidson (tied for second), Kilbourne (eighth) and Coffman (10th) were ranked in the East Region poll. “Both Hilliard schools are ranked in the state and Worthington Kilbourne is always competitive and Dublin Coffman competes every year,” Wion said.

“But we like that challenge. To be the best, you have to play the best.” However, given the team’s inexperience and its schedule, Wion and assistant coach Chris Greathouse have placed more emphasis on improving than the team’s record. “That’s something the coaches and Michael Schroer and I always emphasize to the rest of the team,” Finneran said. “We just want to show up for games and practice and always give 100 per-

cent.” UA closes the regular season Thursday, May 5, at home against Davidson. It then will turn its attention to the Division I regional tournament, which begins May 13. The tournament draw will be held Monday, May 9. “The postseason is a season in itself,” Wion said. “If we do well there, the regular season is almost forgotten.”

Golden Bears’ Epitropoulos to attend OSU Upper Arlington High School junior Frank Epitropoulos has verbally committed to play football for Ohio State. Epitropoulos, a 6-foot-3, 195pound wide receiver who also may see time with the Buckeyes as a punter, accepted a scholarship offer from Ohio State coach Jim Tressel on April 26. He committed to the Buckeyes a day after Ohio State released a letter from the NCAA citing that Tressel had violated NCAA rules. Epitropoulos’ father, John, played for the Buckeyes from 1978-80. “My parents went there, my sister went there, and on top of that, they’ve got one of the best coaching staffs in the country,” he said. “It was a lot harder of a decision than I thought, but I couldn’t pass up Ohio State.” Epitropoulos also considered Michigan State, Stanford and Wisconsin. Last season with the Golden Bears, Epitropoulos had a teamhigh 28 receptions for 463 yards and five touchdowns. He averaged 42.2 yards on 29 punts and was named first-team all-OCCCentral Division and all-district. Epitropoulos also played defensive back for the Bears, recording 55 tackles, including 38 solo, and two interceptions. —By Jarrod Ulrey

UA finishes in fourth place at Governor’s Cup By JARROD ULREY ThisWeek Community Newspapers

In the midst of a spring season in which numerous regattas throughout the Midwest were canceled or suspended before completion, the Governor’s Cup Regatta held April 30 on Griggs Reservoir gave central Ohio’s four crews a long-awaited opportunity to get in a full day of rowing competition. Dublin was forced to spend more time than usual preparing the course in the days leading up to the event, but girls coach Gina Crooks believes it was worth it. “I think every day last week we moved at least one tree out of the water,” Crooks said. “On (April 29) we moved three or four. We also had some issues with the water being high, but (April 29) was almost perfect. Luckily, we got everything done in time because it was scheduled to storm every day last week through last Thursday.” The Cincinnati Junior Rowing Club won its third consecutive Governor’s Cup, scoring 234.5 points as 18 teams scored. Westerville was second (172), Upper Arlington finished fourth (103) and Dublin placed eighth (44). Hilliard, which has only girls, did not score. •Despite having their team finish second and score in 12 events at the Governor’s Cup, Westerville boys and girls coaches Matt and Trish Chase believe there is work to be done. Westerville next will compete in the Midwest Junior Rowing Championships on May 21-22 on Lake Harsha in Batavia, where it has aspirations of sending several boats to the US Rowing Youth Nationals in June. In the Governor’s Cup, the girls lightweight 8 (8 minutes, 5.64 seconds) and the girls second novice 8 (8:28.29) both were first. The girls first novice 8 (8:17.88), the boys lightweight 4 (7:07.11) and the girls first varsity 4 (8:17.97) all were second. The girls first varsity 4 featured Tatiana Lundstrom, Victoria Langerwasser, Lindsey Brown, Ashley Bauer and coxswain Amanda Poll. Alex Sawatzki was coxswain for the girls lightweight 8 that finished first, although there were only two boats that competed in the final. “We felt good about getting second place (as a program),” Trish Chase said. “Our novices did real well, but our heavyweight women did not fare so well.” “This weekend was a bit of a disappointment for the men’s varsity squad,” Matt Chase said. “After the regatta, all of the teams huddled up and said that hopefully we’ll become a rowing team now. Hopefully we can have some good weather, make up for lost time and get some boats into nationals.” •Upper Arlington girls coach Andy Wimmer was pleased with his team’s performance in the Governor’s Cup. The Golden Bears’first novice 8 was first (7 minutes, 44.15 seconds), the first varsity 8 was third (7:20.32) and the second novice 8 was third (8:49.82). Zoe Ribar stroked the first varsity 8 boat, which also featured

Upper Arlington’s first varsity eight team of Ceri Turner (left), Angelina Caradonna, Kate Lowes, Grace Tucker, Olivia Miltner, Ashley Williams, Emory Bergdoll, Zoe Ribar and Summers Hammel take off at the start of the second heat on April 30 during the Governor’s Cup.

Emory Bergdoll,Ashley Williams, Olivia Miltner, Grace Tucker, Kate Lowes, Angelina Caradonna and Ceri Turner and coxswain Summers Hammel. “We were actually pretty pleased across the board,” Wimmer said. “The biggest thing is that it was our first actual full regatta. Our first varsity 8 finished third out of 17 entries, which is a pretty strong finish for us, and with our novice 8 boat, it was really just sheer domination. Our novice 8 boat completely ran away with it.” For the boys team, the second varsity 4 was first (7:30.25), the second varsity 8 was third (7:00.74), the second novice 8 was fourth (8:37.62), the lightweight 8 was third (6:46.31), the first novice 8 was fourth (7:54.89) and the first varsity 8 was fifth (6:58.91).
