Mumma gives positive financial report By MARLA K. KUHLMAN ThisWeek Community Newspapers Gahanna finance director Angel Mumma provided a positive financial first-quarter report to council on May 9 but cautioned that many pending changes at the state level could affect the city’s general fund revenue negatively. Those changes include the elimination of the estate tax proposed in 2013, as well as a reduction in local government funds (LGF) by 50 percent in two years. From Jan. 1 through March 31, Mumma said, Gahanna has collected

$6,714,377 in general-fund revenue. That represents 30 percent of fiscal year 2011 estimated total revenues for the city. The total collected is a 43-perAngel Mumma cent increase over the amount collected in the first quarter of 2010, she said. She said that during the first quarter of 2010, however, the city had just begun using the Regional Income Tax Agency (RITA) and that much of 2010 revenue was not collected until after the first quar-

ter. The local income tax remains the largest source of revenue, Mumma said. Through the first quarter, it made up 61 percent of the city’s general-fund revenue. She said $1.8 million (45 percent) of the income tax came from withholding from the city’s employers. “We’re dependent on our businesses in this community,” she said. Gahanna’s top 10 employers are ADP Total Source III Inc., American Electric Power, the city, Columbus Academy, Defense Finance, Gahanna-Jefferson schools, The Kroger Co., McGraw-Hill Cos., Mif-

flin Township and the state. Other general-fund revenue sources include LGF distributions, licenses and permits, fines and fees, and miscellaneous income. Gahanna received LGF totaling $350,121 in the first three months of 2011. Mumma said this amount is 8 percent ($26,254) higher than the amount received during the same period in 2010. “The state exceeded general tax revenues for the third quarter,” she said. “It’s being distributed, but that has significant potential to change.” Gahanna’s expenses through the first quarter were $4,822,699, representing 17

percent of the authorized expenditures for 2011. The spending is 24 percent lower than in the same period in 2010, Mumma said, in large part because of a reduction in capital expenditures. “It’s regrettable that we have cut so many capital improvement projects, but we have to do what is needed to cut spending,” Mayor Becky Stinchcomb said. “But we continue to look for innovative sources of funding, such as grants.” Salary expenditures for Gahanna employees are See REPORT, page A3

Meadowbrooke development plans to return to council committee By MARLA K. KUHLMAN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Per Gahanna City Council’s request for additional information about the proposed Meadowbrooke subdivision on Havens Corners Road, another committee meeting has been scheduled for Monday, May 23, with a second council reading slated for June 6. Gahanna’s Planning Commission on March 23 voted 5-2 to approve the proposal to increase the density of the proposed Mead-

owbrooke subdivision, at 5593 Havens Corners, from nine to 14 lots. During a May 9 committee meetDavid Samuel ing, council president David Samuel said he has two safety concerns about Meadowbrooke: traffic and maneuverability for school buses. Samuel, who formerly worked as an accident investigator for

Columbus City Schools, said bus drivers would find it difficult to maneuver in the development. “As a router, I would be concerned about putting a bus in there,” he said. He said the traffic on Havens Corners also would make it difficult to turn out of the development. David Hodge, an attorney representing Brookwood Construction, said Havens Corners is a county road and the Franklin County Engineer’s Office has been consulted about the proposed de-

velopment. “We’re taking steps asked of us, concerning what they deem appropriate there,” he said. “They looked at a turn lane from Havens Corners. They deemed a turn lane wasn’t appropriate.” He said the fire department could access the development, so the same should be true of school buses. Council member Nancy McGregor said a fire department has See PLANS, page A2

Gahanna City Council on May 16 will consider legislation for an amendment to a negotiated labor agreement between the city and the Fraternal Order of Police, Capital City Lodge No. 9. Human-resources director Kristen Treadway said council had approved an agreement with the FOP in October, but sections 24.6 through 24.8 were subject to ongoing bargaining and a third-party dispute resolution. “We have completed the dispute resolution process, and we are recommending the amendment to the contract for council to authorize the mayor to sign,” Treadway said. She said Gahanna had gone to a fact-finder for the dispute resolution phase, and to save on cost for an additional binding arbitrator process, both parties agreed that the fact-finder’s decision would be final. “It cost $900 just to do that day,” she said. “We all agreed we’d accept (the decision).” The amendment reduces injury leave from nine months to six months, so quick implementation would benefit the city, Treadway said. Council member Tim Pack asked what had prompted the injury-leave portion of the contract. “I had to read it three times,” he said. “I could imagine the battle involved.” “We were trying to take care of a lot,” Treadway said. She said the city was met with

a lot of resistance, especially involving restricted duty assignments. “We felt we should be able to use (members) in other areas,” Treadway said. “The city will be allowed to utilize injured officers in other capacities besides the police department after certain stipulations are met, which was an important aspect to us.” City attorney Tom Weber said the issue was over how menial the task could be for restricted duty. The amendment states that if a member on injury leave is approved for restricted duty by a physician, the city may place the member in a restricted-duty assignment in the division of police if division management determines that available restricted-duty work is consistent with the member’s medical restrictions.

Inaugural ‘Bark for Life’ to serve as Relay fundraiser By MARLA K. KUHLMAN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Organizers of the Gahanna-New Albany Relay For Life will host the first “Bark for Life” from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, May 14, at Friendship Park, 150 Oklahoma Ave., in Gahanna.

Stephanie Musko, Gahanna-New Albany event chair, said the Bark for Life sounded like a lot of fun, so her team, “Team Musko,” decided to sponsor it as a fundraiser for Relay For Life. Bark for Life is a noncompetitive walk event, giving dogs and their owners an opportunity to become involved in rais-

ing funds and awareness for the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life of Gahanna-New Albany. The day starts with a walk, honoring canine cancer survivors, and then continues with contests and games. “My husband and I will be taking our dog, Poe, a Jack Russell,” Musko said.

Bark for Life shares the theme of the 2011 Relay For Life: “Celebrate. Remember. Fight Back.” Many of the research advances for human cancer, such as research funded by the American Cancer Society, are used to treat dogs with cancer, as well, Musko said. “It’s a great opportunity to have fun,

Jefferson Township Community Garden set to open May 15 By MARLA K. KUHLMAN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Jefferson Township’s community garden will be open for gardeners to plant their plots beginning Sunday, May 15. Michael Vermillion, Jefferson Township parks board member, said the plots are 10 by 10 feet, with a limit of two per person. The cost is $30 per plot for township residents and $50 for per plot for others. Half of the fee is returned, however, when the garden plot has been cleared of all organic and nonorganic materials by Oct. 24. Vermillion said the main section of the garden could have up to 40 plots, but participation in the past two years has been about 25.

“Last year, there was a groundhog problem, but the groundhogs were trapped and removed at the end of last season,” he said. “A fence is being built, so the gardens will be enclosed this season.” Plot renters are asked to be considerate of fellow gardeners by not planting sprawling crops or tall ones that might interfere with others. In addition, gardeners are asked to use earth-friendly pesticides when possible. The gardens are planted at the Schneider Home, a farmstead owned by Jefferson Township on Havens Corners Road, between Reynoldsburg-New Albany and Waggoner roads. The historic site features a 1918

The community garden plots are available on a first-come, firstserved basis, with the first planting day set for May 15, weather permitting. The gardens will remain open to gardeners seven days a week from dawn until dusk through the first heavy frost, when temperatures drop to 28 degrees for at least five hours. Parking, an informational bulletin board, recycling and compost bins are provided. Water will be available but might have to be carried short distances.

PLANS Continued from page A1 lights and sirens to get in and out, but school buses don’t. She said the problem would be in turning out of the development. Council member Brian Larick asked what traffic studiesthat show a turn lane isn’t needed. “What brought them to that conclusion?” council member Beryl Anderson asked. Hodge said the property already is zoned for nine lots, and the developer is asking for six more. “What we’re requesting to add doesn’t account for that many more (vehicles) leaving,” he said. Anderson also asked how the developer had concluded that the development wouldn’t negatively affect values for the surrounding neighborhoods. Hodge said he has heard concerns that Brookwood’s homes, estimated to sell at $250,000 to $300,000, are inconsistent with properties to the south and east. The homes would range from 2,000 to 2,500 square feet. Brookwood hired Charles P. Porter Co., real estate consultants and appraisers, to provide data on single-family homes in Rathburn Woods, Woods at Rose Run and Greens at Clarenton and Rivers Edge for comparison purposes and to develop an opinion on the impact the proposed Meadowbrooke

My younger brother, Michael, is a cancer survivor and both grandmothers passed away from cancer. Being active with the cancer society is important to me.” Gahanna resident Andrea Weiser, event co-chair, said she became involved with Relay because her dad had died from brain cancer two years ago. “I thought it would be a good way to raise money for cancer research,” she said. “I’m also from the Cleveland area and being involved in Relay has been a great way to meet people. It has been a wonderful experience. It involves people of all ages and backgrounds.” Over the past two years, the Gahanna-New Albany Relay For Life has raised more than $127,000, she said. This year’s goal is $58,000. As of May 6, the Gahanna-New Albany Relay had pledges totaling $19,624. Sixteen teams with 139 participants had registered. Natalie Chillinsky, income-development representative for the American Cancer Society, manages five events in Ohio and Pennsylvania. “Gahanna-New Albany truly has a wonderful committee,” she said. “They have a lot of enthusiasm and passion for the cause.” To register for Bark for Life, visit http://barkforlife.eventbrite.com.

subdivision would have on homes in the neighboring Rathburn Woods. He concluded the homes wouldn’t compete directly with Rathburn Woods, and he said the development would have a positive effect on the values of homes in that subdivision. “The purpose is to bring a firstquality subdivision to the city,” he said. From all the debate concerning the proposed development, Hodge said, one would think Brookwood were bringing in a trailer park. Anderson asked how stream erosion would affect the property. Hodge said the development would decrease runoff, and the development is only 4.7 of 650 acres that would contribute to the stream. “We’re here with a green plan, and we committed to approval

from Franklin Soil & Water (Conservation District), as well as your engineer,” he said. Jim Watkins, representing Watcon Consulting Engineers, said 4.7 acres would equate to about 0.4 percent of the drainage area. “We have a low-impact development,” he said. “We want to slow down the volume and flow. We’ll have several mini-basins scattered throughout the development, a dry pond and scattered right-of-way rain gardens.” Mayor Becky Stinchcomb asked who would maintain the basins and rain gardens. Hodge said a homeowners association would be established. “This looks like an isolated island,” Samuel said. “There’s no walkability unless you build bridges over the stream. My concern is that you’re not following vision planning.”

Herb Day to feature heirloom CONTRACT plants for sale on May 21 Continued from page A1

By MARLA K. KUHLMAN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

New at this year’s May Herb Day will be heirloom vegetable plants like Brandywine and Kentucky beefsteak tomatoes that residents can purchase for their own gardens. May Herb Day will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, May 21, at Creekside Park & Plaza, 123 Mill St., and at the Ohio Herb Education Center, 110 Mill St., in Gahanna. Valeria Hamill said Herb Day visitors should expect an “absolutely fantastic” event with daylong herb sales, educational displays and herbal, garden-related and artisan vendors. Hamill recently was named director of the Ohio Herb Education Center (OHEC) following the resignation of Cathy Phillips. “We have a new vendor, Circa Plants, who will put out the heirloom plants,” Hamill said. “A lot of businesses don’t even sell those anymore. I think the community will embrace that in celebration of the past.” Other heirloom tomatoes for sale will be red beefsteak, yellow pear, sweet pea currant, Cherokee purple, mortgage lifter, Tiny Tim,

Amish paste, hillbilly, German grape and oxheart. Pepper varieties will include sweet banana, Anaheim Chile, early jalapeño, hot paper lantern (a red habañero), Jefferson’s bullnose sweet, Hungarian hot wax, mini chocolate bell, California wonder sweet bell, ancho poblano, long cayenne and alma paprika. An assortment of native Ohio, climbers and historic ornamentals also will be available. “We’ll have a variety of about 100 herbs,” Hamill said. Visitors will have an opportunity to sample various herbs, including a tea called “Herbal Surrender” that’s made exclusively for the OHEC. “Three years ago, I was sick, and the former director brought me a sample of the tea,” Hamill said. “It’s wonderful. It was calming and energizing.” The all-organic tea includes peppermint, spearmint, lemon balm and lavender, among other ingredients. Hamill said the spotlight this year would shine on horseradish, the herb of the year. Wendy Winkler, OHEC education coordinator, said a display of horseradish would be set up. “It’s a funny-looking perenni-

al,” she said. “It has medicinal qualities. It was used in salves to decrease swelling. Most people are more familiar with it as (a sauce). It really packs a punch.” Winkler said visitors would see an assortment of dips and unexpected things to do with herbs. “I’ll offer plantings for the kids,” she said. “They will have the opportunity to put in kid-friendly plants in the ground. It’s kind of an adopt-a-plant. I’ll make up a sheet on all of those plants, explaining what they’re good for. They can come back on harvest day and take (their plant) home.” Winkler said the herbs are the main attraction of the day. “People are here early, picking out what looks like the healthiest plants to put in their gardens,” she said. “I think that’s a big draw. They like to touch and smell and, in some cases, taste. It’s a very sensory day. Next to that, people like to try samples.” Jane “Bunnie” Geroux and Gahanna Historical Society members led the effort for Gahanna to be designated the official herb capital of Ohio in 1972.

In brief Trustees choose ECN to provide CodeRED The Jefferson Township trustees have entered into an agreement with Florida-based Emergency Communications Network Inc. (ECN) to provide the CodeRED high-speed notification system and the CodeRED weather warning service for township residents. Jefferson Township officials will have the capability to deliver messages to targeted areas or to the entire township. The service is available to residents of Jefferson Township who live in Gahanna, Reynoldsburg, parts of Columbus and the unincorporated area of the township. ECN has loaded the webbased system with some of the residential telephone numbers within Jefferson Township for use in making emergency notifications. The township can pro-

vide time-sensitive personalized voice and text messages to cell phones and send emails to residents who go to www.jeffersontownship.org and enter their contact information. Weather notifications will be made on an opt-in basis only to cell and landline telephones. The service relays National Weather Service storm warnings and provides automated alerts to citizens in the path of severe weather just moments after the NWS has issued a warning. To obtain weather alerts, residents and businesses should visit the Jefferson Township website and click on the CodeRED Communications Center icon on the homepage to sign up for cell or landline delivery. Information provided by residents will not be shared or sold. Those without Internet access may call the Jefferson Township business offices at (614) 855-

Have You Heard? by Greg VanHorssen IS HEARING IMPAIRMENT LINKED WITH DEMENTIA RISK? Reporting what may be one of the best reasons yet to purchase a hearing instrument, new research shows that hearing-impaired individuals have an increased risk of developing dementia as they age. The study involved more than 600 men and women between ages 36 and 90 over a decade. Each of the study’s participants had a hearing test at the beginning of the study, and none had signs of dementia. By the end of the study, nine percent of its participants had some kind of dementia. Those with mild hearing losses had nearly twice the chance of developing dementia as those with normal hearing. The risk was threefold for those with moderate hearing losses and fivefold for severe impairment. Choosing a hearing professional is one of the most important decisions a hearing impaired person can make At ABSOLUTE HEARING SOLUTIONS, our goal is to provide the best possible hearing care, based upon each patient’s individual needs. We fit and dispense state-of-the-art hearing instruments and related devices to suit all types of hearing loss and lifestyles. Please call us today at 614-654-4309 to schedule a hearing evaluation.

Columbus2020!

International business community will see Columbus as opportunity We’ll leave no stone unturned in our effort to attract, retain and add jobs in the Columbus region. That includes reaching out globally and leveraging our great business connections throughout the world. We must think and act globally to make an impact locally. It’s no surprise that the Columbus region must compete for business beyond U.S. borders. The Columbus2020! team travels the globe to identify these opportunities. Attracting business and supporting international business interests in the region is the job of Deborah Scherer, director of Columbus2020! global markets. Under her direction, our team first will reach out to the nearly 300 foreign-owned businesses in our region and travel to Israel, Canada, India, China, Germany and several other European countries this year alone. It must be said that Japanese companies, led by Honda and its many suppliers, remain in our thoughts and prayers. We likely will visit Japan in the fall and continue to do all we can to strengthen our relationships with the many Japanese companies that provide so many good jobs across the Columbus region. When visiting our international

The first target is to visit headquarters of our existing busiKENNY nesses to thank MCDONALD them for investment in our region and to explore opportunities for expansion of their businesses. Second, we want to speak to companies doing business in the United States but without current facilities or people on the ground. Finally, it is important to meet with advisers and international business organizations that could spread the word that the Columbus region is a dynamic business location for international companies. We will do just that in a few weeks when our team travels to Germany and Israel. In February, our team traveled as part of a delegation to India, and the contacts made there are starting to foster interest in our region. Together with Franklin County, we led a team to New Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Bangalore and the Columbus sister city, Ahmedabad. We were able to represent a cross section of the

region’s leading industries, including financial services, information technology, legal and education. Participants included the city of Columbus, Columbus Sister Cities International, Ohio State University, Jones Lang Lasalle, Kegler, Brown, Hill & Ritter, Bluemile Inc. and SGI Global Business Advisors. India is home to a growing number of companies looking to international markets for growth, and the U.S. market is tops on their lists. Over 10 days, our mission generated more than 40 meetings, resulting in new and strengthened relationships, business-development opportunities and institutional relationships that will benefit the region both economically and academically. Since returning from our trip, nearly 10 Indiabased companies have expressed an interest in visiting Columbus. Our objective for each economic development action, whether as a meeting with many of our great companies in the region or a visit abroad, is to generate more foreign direct investment, more jobs and more global connections. To do that effectively, we must continue to invest in these efforts month after month and year after year. When we travel to Germany and Israel, our goal will be to create awareness of the Columbus area and its many assets. Our region’s growing talent base, work ethic, logistics and technology strengths, established industry sectors and easy market access are just some of the reasons that international businesses thrive here. We will continue to demonstrate why the Columbus area makes sense as a location for their U.S. business operations. International business is a key part of our economic diversity in Columbus, and it is a natural extension of our efforts to develop jobs and investment here. We are proud to represent such a robust region and are excited about our appointments around the world. Kenny McDonald is chief economic officer for Columbus2020!

As it were

‘Flytown’ played host to large spring carnival in Columbus 100 years ago People have been celebrating the arrival of spring for a long time. Even before civilizations began with written records more than 5,000 years ago, people emerged from their homes and reveled in the fact that the cold, wet darkness of winter was gone. The flowers were back and so was the promise of a better day. In Columbus, 100 years ago, people celebrated the arrival of spring in a number of ways. At Indianola Park, at 19th and North Fourth streets, a kite-flying contest was held. At local dance halls and roller rinks, special evenings were held to attract both regular and casual visitors. In Flytown, it was the annual spring carnival. First, perhaps a brief word about Flytown might be in order. Every city of any size has its “entry point� neighborhoods. These are the places where people of little or moderate means could find housing and stores to purchase inexpensive food, clothing and the other necessities of life. When Columbus was a small Midwestern capital city of several hundred residents, the poor lived along the river or near one of the ravines created by creeks

passing through the downtown while the criminal element had a m o d e s t “thieves marED ket� near what LENTZ is now the intersection of Cleveland Avenue and Long Street. A hundred years later in 1911, Columbus was a major center of transportation and trade, as well as a major manufacturing center. Perhaps it should not be too surprising that the entry neighborhoods of Columbus — and there were a few in 1911 — had grown up around the factory areas, where a lot of work might be found. In the far south end of the city, near the steel mills, was the Steelton area. On the near west side was the Middletown neighborhood near old Franklinton. And on the north side, near Goodale Park to the east and the factories that lined the Olentangy to the west, was Flytown. No one seemed to know why exactly it was called Flytown. One theory held that the area of modest homes and poorly drained

streets literally “flew up� overnight. Another noted that the area was the home of many people who were living “on the fly.� Of course, there was the notion that the area had a lot of houseflies. In any case, by 1911, Flytown was the home of several hundred people of various nationalities with little income and a variety of medical, social and economic concerns. Since the end of the previous century, help had been provided by Godman Guild. Formed with the financial help of shoe magnate H.C. Godman, the guild was one of the oldest and more successful settlement houses in the city. Each year, one of the reasons for that success was its spring carnival. Called “Skada Doings,� the event was sponsored by the Guild and the West Goodale Street Improvement Association. A local paper praised Godman Guild and noted, “There is the city’s best cosmopolitanism because a dozen nationalities meet there under the guiding spirit of a common mixture of cooperative needs. As an evidence of this cooperation, the actual serv-

Gahanna Mayor Becky Stinchcomb swore in Amanda J. Parker to serve as Gahanna’s clerk of courts during the May 2 Gahanna City Council meeting. Parker, who has served as the clerk of courts for Canal Winchester since 2008, previously worked in the Columbus Division of Police dispatch unit. Parker earned her bachelor’s degree in criminology from the Ohio State University and is the vice president of the Central Ohio Association of Mayor’s Court Clerks. “Amanda brings with her the experience and enthusiasm that we look for in our professionals, and we are excited to have her on board,� Stinchcomb said. Parker will supervise the daily operations of Gahanna’s mayor’s court, which hears misdemeanor offenses that occur in the jurisdiction of the Gahanna Police Department.

Lions shortstop Jarrod Moss throws to first base to turn a double play as teammate Joey Tomko looks on during the win over Grove City on May 7.

Lions batters trying to stay patient at plate By JARROD ULREY ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Senior infielder Shane DeFranco tries to remind himself of his task when he prepares to bat for the Gahanna Lincoln High School baseball team. The prompting goes something like this: Don’t swing at bad pitches, especially when it’s a favorable count. Although the results haven’t been as consistent as he and his teammates would like, they’ve found that formula helpful since losing back-to-back 32 games to Pickerington North on April 18 and 21. The Lions won nine of their next 10, including lopsided wins over Hartley (12-0 on April 28), Hilliard Davidson (12-0 on April 30) and Groveport (16-1 on May 4). “I feel like our team is playing pretty well,” DeFranco said. “We still have some games where we don’t hit the

ball as much as we think we should, but then our pitching and defense keep us in games. It’s just been everyone doing their jobs. Our mentality is always to try to get a pitch and drive it.” The recent stretch of strong play had Gahanna feeling optimistic as it began Division I district tournament play May 11 against Central Crossing or Marion-Franklin in the second round. The Lions were voted the fifth seed and had a first-round bye. If Gahanna won its postseason opener, it will play Tuesday, May 17, at Hamilton Township against Watkins Memorial or St. Charles in a district semifinal. Watkins Memorial was seeded 10th. Looming in the Lions’ bracket as a potential opponent in a district final May 19 at Dublin Jerome are secondseeded Dublin Coffman and sixthseeded Davidson.

Taylor Neville of Gahanna Lincoln delivers a pitch during the Lions’ 17-3 drubbing of host Grove City on May 7.

Last season, Gahanna was seeded sixth and beat Westerville Central 8-3 in the second round before losing to 12th-seeded Upper Arlington 3-1 in a district semifinal. The Lions won back-to-back district titles in 2008 and ’09. “It’s always good to have a firstround bye,” coach Mike Shade said. “It shows that we’ve gotten some respect from the other coaches around the dis-

Jarrod Moss has helped spark the Lions after recently moving into the leadoff spot. Joey Tomko, Jake Moss, Taylor Neville and Cole Greisinger have been others who have contributed

Gahanna wins OCC-Ohio, gets ready for sectional From staff reports

By Eric George/ThisWeek

Gahanna Lincoln sophomore Sam Raybuck stepped in for Stephen Cheng at third singles and defeated Sanjeev Kolli of Pickerington Central 6-4, 6-3 to complete a singles sweep for the Lions, clinching a third consecutive OCC-Ohio tournament title.

Hilliard Darby, Hilliard Davidson, Pickerington Central and Upper Arlington high schools will play host to the Division I boys tennis sectional tournaments Thursday, May 12, and Saturday, May 14. The top four finishers in singles and doubles at the sectional sites advance to the district tournament May 20-21 at Davidson. At the UA site, Dublin Coffman’s Hiromi Nakayama, a twotime state qualifier, is the top seed in singles, followed by UA’s Brandon Griffin (second), Olentangy Orange’s Doug Ganim (third) and UA’s Jeff Melvin (fourth). UA’s Billy Weldon and Stu Little are seeded first in doubles, with

Coffman’s Jack Buchan and Leon Cai (second), UA’s Eric Vannatta and Nate Wallace (third) and Orange’s Tanner Greene and Ryan Jay (fourth) rounding out the top four. Losing to New Albany 3-2 in the first round of the OTCA Division I team tournament on April 20 not only ended UA’s string of eight consecutive appearances in the state team tournament, it forced the Golden Bears to put extra emphasis on individual success. “It stings a little bit, but it’s not like our season is ruined,” said Weldon, who won the state doubles championship with Little last season. New Albany dominated the seeds in the Darby sectional, as

Sean Yun, Steve Miller and Sam Romanoff are seeded first, second and fourth, respectively, in singles and John Hendrix and Oliver Sybert (first) and Jordan Rabe and Ameen Farwana (third) are two of the top three seeds in doubles. St. Charles’Dennis Gleason is seeded third in singles, and St. Charles’ Grant Dolven and Weston Niermeyer and Pickerington North’s Sam Prewitt and Dylan Bhaerman are seeded second and fourth, respectively, in doubles. At the Pickerington Central site, Thomas Worthington’s Casey Cempre is the top seed in singles, followed by Westerville Central’s Luke Buchanan (second), Grove See TENNIS, page B3

Recent slump vexes Lions’ coach, players By JARROD ULREY ThisWeek Community Newspapers

As senior pitcher Brandis Fishel stated in assessing the Gahanna Lincoln High School softball team as it concluded OCC-Ohio Division play with a 3-1 loss to visiting Groveport on May 6, maybe it simply was a case that girls “just get stupid before prom.” Or perhaps there was something in the air April 30 at Marion Elgin, where the Lions lost to Caledonia River Valley 5-4 and the host Comets 8-7 in a doubleheader, beginning a stretch in which they lost four of six. Whatever the explanation, Gahanna enters the Division I district tournament Thursday, May 12, coming off its first prolonged slump in a season in which it consistently has been ranked in the state poll. “I have no idea,” Fishel said of her team’s recent struggles a day before Gahanna’s prom was held May 7. “We should be able to get more than three runs (against Groveport). Our defense is what we’ve been living on, and we’ve been struggling in that, too. We just had a really bad weekend (in Marion), and I just don’t know what’s wrong.

ion-Franklin in its postseason opener. Groveport improved to 12-1 in the OCC-Ohio and clinched the title outright by beating Pickerington North 6-1 on May 9. The Lions finished 11-3 in league play, with their other two league losses coming to the Cruisers (2-1 on April 18) and Pickerington Central (6-5 on May 5). Gahanna had two errors in the most recent loss to Groveport, one of which led to three unearned runs in the fifth inning. Offensively, the Lions had just five hits as Groveport pitcher Emma Johnson finished with 12 strikeouts. Gahanna took advantage of an error on the Cruis-

ers in the fourth as Fishel had an RBI single for her team’s only run. “I wish I could tell you what’s wrong,” coach Jim Campolo said. “I really don’t know. The first part of the year we lived on pitching and defense, and our defense and pitching have just gone bye-bye. We had five (errors) in one inning (against Central) and six total for the game. We gave them basically all of their runs. “It all just started (April 30) and I have no idea what happened. We just made some mistakes up there and it’s carried over.” Scioto was 4-14 entering the

week. Marion-Franklin hasn’t won a district tournament game since 2007 when it beat one of its City League-South Division opponents, Independence, 8-1 in a first-round contest. If Gahanna reaches a district semifinal Tuesday, May 17, at Pickerington North, it could get a rematch with Pickerington Central. The Tigers are seeded 11th and opened the tournament May 10 against Columbus West. The winner of that game plays Thursday, May 12, at home against Upper Arlington or Northland. Central was 14-8 overall and 8-4 in the OCC-Ohio entering the week. Gahanna beat the

Tigers 6-2 on April 8. Upper Arlington was 7-11 entering the week, but it beat Pickerington Central 8-6 on April 16. The Golden Bears lost to the Lions 1-0 in 11 innings in a district final last season. Campolo believes his team has the work ethic to make another long tournament run despite its recent struggles. “We don’t play the easiest of schedules,” he said. “I wish I had some answers. I just think that we’ve made some of these mistakes at the wrong time.” julrey@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com

Academy Roundup

MSL title narrowly eludes boys tennis squad By FRANK DiRENNA

At a glance

ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Before the season began, Columbus Academy boys tennis coach Jeff Warstler expected a tight battle in the MSL-Ohio/Cardinal Division between his team and Bexley, although he called the Lions the team to beat. Warstler’s prediction came to fruition on May 7 at Academy, as Bexley won three of five courts in the league tournament to finish with 47 points. The Vikings placed second with 43 points, followed by Granville (29), Fisher Catholic (17), Grandview (15), Whitehall (8) and West Jefferson (2). Bexley went 6-0 in MSL-Ohio/Cardinal duals, with Academy finishing 5-1. The Vikings lost to Bexley 3-2 in a match that began April 26 but was completed May 4. Academy swept the doubles titles in the league meet, as Langston Hughes and Chris Perrini defeated Bexley’s David Seckel and Max Schottenstein 10-5 in the final at first doubles and Dan Leathery and Abram Schottenstein beat Bexley’s Christian Liefeld and Matt O’Hern 10-4 in the final at second doubles. Bexley swept the league titles in singles. “I thought it was a good day for us,” Warstler said. “I thought our young ones did well at one, two and three (singles). Doubles did what they’re supposed to do. At that stage, that’s business performance. You have to do what you need to do to get that win and I thought those doubles teams did. “That should set us up nice for sectionals.” Academy plays host to the 11-team Division II sectional tournament on

Clark (.491), Zach Ratcliff (.362) and Joey Vara (.327). Sergakis also was leading the team in home runs with three, and Vara was leading the team in RBI with 20. On the mound, Stephen Casey was 3-1 with a 4.45 ERA, 13 strikeouts and 20 walks. •The girls lacrosse team is seeded second in the Division II South/Central Region tournament behind Cincinnati Mariemont and will play host to DeSales or Hilliard Bradley in the second round on May 19. The Vikings defeated DeSales 14-4 on May 5 behind six goals from Allie Roehrenbeck. Courtney Denna scored five goals and goalkeeper Sarah Wilson had nine saves. Academy has not played Bradley this season. “The world is ours,” coach Anne Horton said. “If we can take care of our play and play with a little more consistency at times, (the girls) have the ability to go as far as they can go. We need to continue to stay healthy and keep the focus where it needs to be, because you always worry with exams looming, graduation and just other factors going on. There can always be an unhealthy tug at the kids and you hope that we can just keep our focus grounded, and we’ll just see what plays out for us.” Academy was 8-1-1 before playing Columbus School for Girls on May 10. Last season, the Vikings reached a state semifinal, where they lost to Shaker Heights Hathaway Brown 19-13 to finish 14-4. Hathaway Brown went on to win the state title, defeating Chagrin Falls 14-5 in the final.

Below are the recent results and coming schedules for the Academy baseball, girls lacrosse, boys tennis and track & field teams: BASEBALL *May 4 — Lost to Newark Catholic 3-2 *May 5 — Lost to Granville 4-2 May 9 — Lost to Hilliard Bradley 10-2 May 12 — Home vs. Berne Union or Caledonia River Valley in second round of Division III district tournament.

Top four finishers in each event advance to the regional meet May 25 and 27 at Fairfield Union.

Thursday, May 12, and Saturday, May 14. The top four finishers in singles and doubles advance to the district tournament, which will be held May 2021 at home. “I would like to think that both doubles teams get through to districts,” Warstler said. “I’d like to think that maybe one of the singles guys gets through. I don’t know if we get two through.” •The baseball team entered the Division III district tournament looking to bounce back from a pair of close losses in the MSL-Ohio. The Vikings are seeded seventh in the district and had a first-round bye. They will play host to Berne Union or Caledonia River Valley in the second round on Thursday, May 12. The second-round winner plays second-seeded Fredericktown, Grandview

or Worthington Christian in a district semifinal Monday, May 16, at Delaware. The district final is Wednesday, May 18, at Dublin Coffman, with potential opponents including thirdseeded Bloom-Carroll and sixth-seeded Utica. Academy lost to Newark Catholic 3-2 on May 4 and Granville 4-2 on May 5 in league games. “We lost a couple tough games (against) Newark Catholic and Granville,” coach Jim Collis said. “We felt that we gave games away. That was disappointing from a coach’s perspective, but it’s baseball and those things happen.” The Vikings defeated Berne Union 9-1 on April 5 but have not played River Valley. “Berne Union is always tough,” Collis said. “They’re a smaller school, but

they compete. We beat them during the regular season. ... I know they have a pretty good No. 1 (pitcher Brock Shull) in the coach’s (Kelly Shull) son, so we’ll see what happens.” Academy entered the week 8-5 in the MSL-Ohio with one league game to complete, as its game with Bexley on May 2 was suspended with the score tied at 8 in the seventh inning. Newark Catholic, the top seed in the Division IV district tournament, finished first in the MSL-Ohio at 12-2, and Heath was second at 10-4. Entering the week, Academy and Granville are tied for third at 8-5, followed by Bexley (7-6), Lakewood (4-10), Whitehall (3-10) and Licking Valley (2-12). Through 16 games, Nick Sergakis was the Vikings’ top hitter with a .552 fdirenna@thisweeknews.com batting average, followed by Kennedy www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com

At the Davidson site, Dublin Jerome’s Kent Seitz and Sean Stein, who placed fourth at state in doubles last year, are the top seed in doubles, followed by Gahanna’s Stephen Cheng and Canyon Teague (second), Worthington Kilbourne’s Sam Lazaroff and Roger Juang (third) and Davidson’s Zach Page and Greg Tiffan (fourth).

The Lions had to shuffle their lineup as two-time league champion Cheng was taking the SAT and was unavailable to compete May 7 at Pickerington Central. Cheng won at third singles last season. “I have never been more proud of a team than I was (May 7),” Lions coach Chris Schwinnen

said. “When Stephen told us he wouldn’t be there, it caught us a little off guard. The boys didn’t know what to expect. The comfort level wasn’t there and that added some pressure. Stephen was unbeaten at third singles. “But in the end, the boys were hungry for a third straight OCC title and they really stepped up to the challenge. Now we’ve got a greater sense of accomplishment.” Sam Raybuck moved from first doubles to third singles and defeated Pickerington Central’s Sanjeev Kolli 6-4, 6-3 to complete the singles sweep. Shivener defeated Hemphill 6-1, 6-1 for his third consecutive title at first singles, and Teague defeated Stang 6-0, 6-0 to repeat as second-singles champion. “Sam did a great job filling in and responding well,” Schwinnen said. “By bumping him up, that rearranged our doubles lineups on both courts and they also adjusted and played well.” The Lions reached the final on both doubles courts before rain suspended play.

doubles, and Sam Sobul and Billy Smith were playing North’s Alex Bartsch and Ben Keen in the second doubles final. “Emoff and Buck are great partners, so we had a first doubles team who hadn’t played together before,” Schwinnen said. “Our second doubles team had played some non-league matches together.” Because doubles play was not complete, final standings could not be tabulated. North also had a rescheduled match against Newark. In the league tournament, two third-place doubles matches between Central and Reynoldsburg were scheduled to be concluded May 10. “We were disappointed in our play, and it looks like we’ll finish third behind North,” Central coach Kelli Rings said. “Chase Thomas lost to Grove City’s Joey Hemphill for the first time in four years. Both are seniors. Then our doubles teams had a chance to upend Gahanna because of their new lineups, but we didn’t play well. If you don’t believe, you can’t achieve. “We didn’t put up the fight I thought we would.”

DiBella’s: Our sandwich bread rises to the occasion So you’re thinking, “Yawn. Not another sub shop.” Indeed, another national sandwich chain has picked Columbus for its next Ohio store. DiBella’s Old Fashioned Submarines, based in Rochester, N.Y., has opened at 4949 Tuttle Crossing Blvd. Adam Burton, chief marketing officer for the company, stresses that DiBella’s is not just another sandwich shop. “Once you try our subs, you’re not going to want anybody else’s,” he said. “Give it a shot. Trust me: It’s better than anything you’ve ever had.” DiBella’s joins countless other sub shops in the region, both national and homegrown, including Subway, Jersey Mike’s, Quiznos, Penn Station, Jimmy John’s, Potbelly, Charlie’s Grilled Subs, w.g. Grinders and Johnny Buccelli’s. One key difference, Burton said, is the bread. The frozen dough is delivered raw to each of the company’s 21 corporate stores, where it proofs and is baked on site. Another distinction is that DiBella’s does not toast its subs “because we don’t think that’s fair to our bread,” he said. Similar to other sandwich chains, it offers cold and grilled meats, topped with a choice of cheeses and condiments. Subs come in small (7 inches), medium (10) and large (14). The menu is rounded out with green salads and fresh-baked cookies,

chips and pasta, macaroni and potato salads. DiBella’s started as an Italian grocery store in 1918 and began selling subs about 30 years ago. It became a subsonly business 20 years ago and began expanding five years later. “It had a personal feel that really resonated with customers,” Burton said, adding that DiBella’s has 21 stores in four states. The location for the first Columbus store, an outparcel at the main entrance of the Mall at Tuttle Crossing, was chosen because of the high traffic counts, growth in the area and stellar demographics, Burton said. The 4,000-square-foot space formerly was occupied by a Cord Camera. A patterned ceiling, subway-tiled floors, red neon signs, diner-style booths give an “old-school” atmosphere, he said. “From the first step you take in the door, you will notice the difference,” Burton said. “It doesn’t feel like a chain when you come in.” David Kincheloe, president of National Restaurant Consultants, said the fast-casual segment of the industry is flourishing because of the economy. As long as DiBella’s differentiates itself from the throng of current sandwich shops, it can thrive, even in the competitive central Ohio market, he

COLUMBUS CREATURE FEATURE Asian Elephants

Hi Kids! Here’s a picture of my friend Phoebe walking around with her son, Beco. She is one of the Asian elephants you can visit at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium.

Learn at the Zoo

Phoebe has lived at the Columbus Zoo since 2002. She is 24 years old and has had three calves. Two of her sons, Bodhi and Beco, live here too. Just like our moms, Phoebe taught Beco and Bodhi how to swim, find food and stay out of harm’s way.

• Keeper for a Day: for ages 13-17 years May: • ZooTots: for ages 18-36 months • Twilight Tours • Family Class: Backyard Birding • ZooKids: for ages 3-5 years • Wild Encounters Tours: for ages • After School at the Zoo: 10 years & up for grades 3 – 7

When they were each about seven months old, she led them into the deep end of the pool where they learned to kick and splash to stay afloat. If they got tired and needed help, she would extend her leg so they could hold on and rest. What a marvelous mom! You can adopt an Asian elephant at www.columbuszoo.org.

Looking Ahead: • Summer Day Camps: for ages 3-5 and grades 1-7 • Family Class: Backyards for Wildlife • Family Night Hikes To register visit: www.columbuszoo.org

Zoo Kid Corner

Adam R. from Grove City, OH Age: 7 Education Program: Home School Adventure Series

• Adam loves coming to the Zoo to see his favorite animal, Hanna, the reticulated python. Hanna lives in our Asia Quest region and can be found lounging in her pool on most days. • Adam also enjoys coming to our Home School Adventure Series. His favorite class topic this year was the rainforest, because Sid, our two-toed sloth, came to visit the class. He watched Sid closely while he hung on his branch eating peaches and eggs. • When asked if he could go anywhere in the world to see an animal in the wild, Adam said Africa to see gorillas. Adam likes watching the gorillas that live at our Zoo play outside on warm days.

Financial finesse

Preparing your teen for college Have a college-bound teen? It’s never too early to start prepping for financial and personal safety on campus. Having a child that is getting ready to graduate and head off to college can be an exciting time. It is also a great time to take the opportunity to teach teens how to keep their guards up and to protect themselves before they have to learn the hard way. So here are a few tips to consider discussing with your teen before he or she heads off to college: Give kids a chance to manage money. A great way to build your children’s financial foundation is to open a checking and savings account in their names. Ensure that they understand how to balance their checkbooks and make timely entries as money comes and goes. With a savings account, they’ll be able to see the value as the account grows and will feel empowered by contributing to the

May 12, 2011

account. Add a bit of reality to financial conversations. If your teen is anxious to rent his first ERIC apartment and live off camCLARKE pus, show him your monthly bills. This should help him gain a better understanding of how much things really cost and how much he will need to budget to cover his bills before he gets in over his head. Is a free T-shirt worth access to a Social Security number? The likely answer is, probably not, but our teens might not see it that way. This is a time when teens need to learn about how to care for their “identity” and how quickly thieves can steal their identity. This is an opportune time to give your children a basic un-

derstanding about the access their Social Security numbers provide to their identity and how long it can take to repair their credit if it gets into the wrong hands. Not sure where to start? Some of this information might be provided during your teen’s college orientation, but if you’d like to give your teen an advantage, you might consider consulting your financial institution for tips on talking to teens or seek seminars offered on such topics as campus safety, protecting your identity and the do’s and don’ts of having that first credit card. Fifth Third Bank will be hosting “College Prep 101 Open Houses” on May 18, 20 and 21 at area banking centers. Please contact Eric Clarke, Membership Banking Specialist for Fifth Third Bank, to RSVP at 614744-5357 or send an e-mail to Eric.Clarke@53.com.

Awnings allow homeowners more time for outdoor entertaining If you enjoy spending time on your deck or patio but feel like the blazing sun limits the time you spend outside, it might be time to take back your outdoor entertaining area with a retractable awning.

repellent and specifically designed to endure the elements. Acrylic also disperses, absorbs and reflects dangerous ultraviolet rays from the sun. The awnings can be operated manually or by a motor and can adjust to different angles.

“Many people typically use their backyard patios only during the early evening hours, when the sun is setting,” explained Matt Reeder of Weather Armor. “If you made a substantial investment in a deck or patio, it doesn’t make sense to be able to use it only a small percentage of the time.”

Rolltec awnings are available in a variety of designs and colors to match your home’s exterior. You can accessorize your awning with a variety of options, including a remote control, sun and wind sensors, and a protective hood to keep the rolled awning shielded from the elements. A manual override is available in case of power outages.

Weather Armor offers Rolltec brand awnings, a customizable solution to getting more use out of your patio or deck area. An awning can improve both the appearance and functionality of your home, and Rolltec awnings are custom-made to fit your specifications. They project farther from the home than any other awning on the market, and there are no permanent posts to interfere with your living space.

Weather Armor currently is offering $300 off an installed Rolltec awning when you mention this article. Call (614) 795-4800 to schedule a free estimate and take advantage of this summer special.

Many awnings on the market are made of vinyl, which might end up rotting after being exposed to the elements. Weather Armor’s Rolltec awnings are made of acrylic, which is water-

As a member in good standing with the Better Business Bureau and Angie’s List, Weather Armor has been helping central Ohio homeowners improve the value of their homes for more than 10 years. In addition to awnings, the company offers a complete line of Gutterglove products. Visit www.rolltecawnings.com for more information on its awnings.

The Rolltec retractable awning extends farther from your home than other awnings on the market to allow for more space for entertaining in the shade.

Vaud-Villities annual show will ‘Celebrate!’ new locale

May 12, 2011

Visit our website A locally owned network of 23 award-winning community newspapers. for breaking news.

By KEVIN PARKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Almost a surer sign of spring in central Ohio than the blooming of flowers is the arrival of another show by Vaud-Villities Productions. Back for an annual series of performances, the self-described “America’s longest-running music and dance spectacular” will be held May 18-22. The title of this year’s show is “Celebrate!” and part of the celebration will be of the troupe’s inaugural performance in a new, permanent home at the Northland Performing Arts Center. Located in a portion of the old JC Penney building on the site of the defunct Northland Mall, the new headquarters brings together every aspect of the operations of Vaud-Villities, according to board chairman Kent D. Stuckey. Although Vaud-Villities officials had anticipated the overhaul of the former department store would have been almost completed in time for last year’s show, the occupancy and food-service permits were only recently obtained. Last year’s show took place on the stage of what was once Upper Arlington High School, where the first performance took place in 1943. Stuckey said that Vaud-Villities has been “at the mercy” of a construction contractor who still hasn’t completed all the work two years past the deadline. “But the show must go on,” he said. And it will. And the performers can’t wait, according to Toni Auch, artistic director since 1993. “I think they’re really riding high now,” Auch said. “All of the things they’ve been practicing are coming to a head. Once the curtain started going up they really got excited. They said, ‘This is really looking like a theatre.’ ” The seating riser system for the Performing Arts Center is in place, Stuckey said last week. The configurable stage is scheduled to be ready for opening night, as are the lighting and sound systems. “We’re thrilled to be here,” the board chairman said. “We’re thrilled to be able to share it with other performing arts groups and

the local community. “We think that this could serve as a model for redevelopment across the country, to repurpose mall facilities for community use.” Members of the Vaud-Villities cast and crew come from all across Columbus, all parts of Franklin County and even beyond, according to Auch. While the new facility involves a major investment on the part of Vaud-Villities Productions, Stuckey said that the troupe’s costs will actually be reduced by bringing the entire operation into one location. “We now have a facility that meets all of our rehearsal, warehouse and set shop needs,” he said. The lower operating costs, Stuckey added, open up a “huge landscape of new opportunities,” including additional productions by Vaud-Villities throughout the year, hosting special events and providing a venue for community activities. In fact, Stuckey said that a Christmas production is being planned and Vaud-Villities will participate in some way in Halloween events at the Northland Performing Arts Center. The Ohio State University Department of Dance, he added, will be using the center for two years while Sullivant Hall undergoes renovation. “There’s no growth without struggle,” Stuckey said. “We’re now past that phase to where we realize the fruits of our investment and our work.” “There’s more to be excited about than to be unhappy about

or concerned about,” Auch said. “There are so many things that have really worked out well. We didn’t know how successful we’d be being in a totally different area of the city, but a lot of us remember way back when Northland was the place to go.” The Morse Road corridor, where the mall was a focal point until it closed in 2002, is now undergoing a major revitalization, the artistic director noted. “It’s great to be part of that,” Auch said. “We feel very good about what we’ve got here,” Stuckey said. The 69th consecutive annual show for Vaud-Villities will not only celebrate the new venue, according to Auch, but also the things all people celebrate, such as the circus, Broadway musicals and patriotic songs. “We’re kind of doing a reprise of some things that were very successful in the past,” she said. “Celebrate” will include a circus celebration with marching band and dancing clowns, production numbers from Broadway hits, professionally choreographed dance routines and a finale featuring the combined men’s and women’s choirs. “We love to sing patriotic music and music that’s very touching, meaningful,” Auch said. “When you put the full group together plus dancers, it puts over 100 people on stage. That’s kind of an overwhelming feeling, particularly when it’s patriotic music because it touches the heart.”

“Every year before my screening, I would simply change the date on the appeal letter I sent the year before as I expected the insurance company would deny payment for my mammogram,” Elizabeth said. For Elizabeth, her annual encounter with the red tape was worthwhile as the screenings gave her knowledge and peace of mind. A couple years ago Elizabeth began working contract jobs and found herself unable to afford health insurance or the cost of screenings — yet her income was too high to be eligible for the state’s Medicaid program. Even more frightening, the team at the Columbus Cancer Clinic detected a mass in her left breast during her annual mammogram.

Needing a second screening and an ultrasound, the Cancer Clinic informed Elizabeth that she would be eligible for assistance through the state’s Breast and Cervical Cancer Project (BCCP). Administered by the Ohio Department of Health through funding by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and state budget appropriations, the BCCP provides mammograms, diagnostic testing and case management services to low-income women in Ohio who don’t have insurance coverage and fall in the eligibility gap for the state’s Medicaid system.

SURVIVOR CEREMONY

Regina Brett to speak at post-race event On May 14, downtown Columbus will be transformed into a sea of pink as thousands gather to participate in the annual Susan G. Komen Columbus Race for the Cure. Within the crowd of pink-clad people—there were more than 50,000 participants in 2010—certain individuals stand out because they are just a little bit pinker than all the rest. Hundreds of breast cancer survivors, marked by their solid pink t-shirts, will run and walk the 5K race course this year—accompanied by family, friends and the Central Ohio community. After the race, all survivors will be invited to participate in the Sur-

vivor Ceremony & Celebration, an empowering, inspirational event that will start at 10:45 a.m. on the west steps of the Ohio Statehouse. The keynote speaker for this year’s celebration knows all too well what it means to be a breast cancer survivor. Regina Brett has been cancer-free for 14 years. She has sisters and cousins who have lost their lives to the disease. Her daughter found out in 2007 that she, like Brett, carried the BRCA1 gene, which can cause breast cancer, and chose to have her breasts surgically removed. Brett is a well-known and respected columnist for the Cleveland Plain Dealer and a Pulitzer Prize finalist twice for pieces she

wrote for the newspaper. She is also the author of God Never Blinks: 50 Lessons for Life’s Little Detours, an inspirational collection of essays, and she hosts a weekly call-in radio show on Northeast Ohio’s NPR affiliate station. At the Columbus survivor ceremony, Brett will celebrate breast cancer survivorship surrounded by fellow survivors and those closest to them—in addition to thousands of other Ohioans. As each survivor crosses the finish line, they will receive a pink rose and be asked to proceed to Survivor Palooza, a special tented area designated for survivors, to prepare to be honored at the

ceremony. During the event, they will parade across the Statehouse lawn in order of length of survivorship—from those undergoing treatment to those who have been cancer-free for decades— and assemble on the steps of the Statehouse to be recognized. The celebration won’t be without music. The Hot Pink Racers, a local band that combines punk rock and pink, will get the crowd moving. The band was organized exclusively for the Columbus Race for the Cure by Joe Cygan, the widower of Heather Pick, a Columbus television news anchor who lost her fight with breast cancer in 2008. Rebekah Smith, a talented young Columbus singer,

will also perform with accompianist Scott Solchert. Awards will be given to survivors and top runners. All are welcome on the State-

house lawn after the race this year to join in this amazing celebration of survivorship—and be part of finding a cure to end breast cancer forever.

13,591 women - of which 213 were diagnosed with breast cancer. Unfortunately as the state has faced difficult budget challenges in recent years, funding for the program has been significantly reduced. Based on the most recent data, 150,601 women in Ohio (8 percent of the population) are eligible for BCCP however only 11 percent of that population can be screened at current funding levels. In the proposed state budget for fiscal years 2012-2013, funding for the Ohio BCCP program is reduced by another $228,000 over the next two years translating into roughly 1,300 fewer screenings. Ohio’s Komen affiliates recognize the state’s fiscal situation, so instead of asking legislative leaders to restore funding at levels from previous years, the request is to refrain from any additional reductions. “We realize that it’s unrealistic to expect the BCCP to receive more funding during these tough economic times,� Komen Columbus Executive Director Katie Carter said. “When the current budget problems are resolved and the state can dedicate more resources toward prevention, we will continue to show the cost benefits of early screening versus treatment and ask that funding be increased.� While state lawmakers work to reform the Medicaid system to reduce costs and improve health outcomes for Ohioans, advocates for the BCCP warn that any additional reduction in access to the screening program will only lead to increases in overall health care costs. While the average cost of BCCP services is $175, the cost of treating later stage breast cancer can exceed

OUTSTANDING INDIVIDUAL VOLUNTEER

Carole Morbitzer selected for award Morbitzer says she got involved with Komen Columbus after coaching a close volleyball match. One of her star players, Lindsey, seemed distracted. Later, on the bus ride home, she noticed Lindsey and four other girls crying. Once they returned to school she approached Lindsey and discovered that her mother had just been diagnosed with terminal breast cancer. “I stood there in the rain with Lindsey, her head on my shoulder and we both cried,” Morbitzer said. “When I got in the car, it hit me. Those other four girls who were crying with Lind-

sey...their mothers had breast cancer also.” Knowing she had to get involved, Morbitzer entered her school in the High School Team Challenge Program for the Komen Columbus Race for the Cure in 2000. The Hamilton Township team continues to grow every year due to a combination of new students joining with alumni, friends, and family. Last year the team reached an all time high of 816 members, and Morbitzer hopes that number will be surpassed this year. One of those alumni running

with her every year is Lindsey, who was also one of the first people Morbitzer called after finding out she received the Outstanding Individual Volunteer Award. “[Lindsey] began to cry and said, ‘I am so proud of you.’” Morbitzer said. “In my 16-year career, I have told hundreds of students that I am proud of them. It was the first time that a former student said those words to me.” In the 11 years Morbitzer has coached volleyball with Hamilton Township, she has had seven players experience their mothers’ battles with breast cancer. This motivated her to raise an incredible $95,027 for the Columbus Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure through Race registrations, pledges,Volley for the Cure events and other donations. “Every year I learn of more students who are affected by breast cancer,” Morbitzer said. “I will do everything I can for the rest of my career to get students involved in the fight against breast cancer. I will continue to encourage students to participate in the Race for the Cure every year...now and for the rest of their lives...or better yet, until there is a cure.” Each year, Morbitzer not only organizes a team to be in the race, but another 200 volunteers at the start line. Her group even choreographed a dance they taught to breast cancer survivors and then performed at the Survivor Ceremony on Race day. She says her students have a great time during the race, but do remember what is important, the survivors. “When the survivors come through those State House doors [at the Survivor Ceremony], I will look around and I will see several students in tears,” Morbitzer said, “It is during those moments when I have realized that my students get it. They understand why they are there and realize that they are a part of something amazing.” Under Morbitzer’s tireless direction, every year a new group of students becomes engaged in the breast cancer cause not only at Hamilton Township, but in Central Ohio, as she provides advice and suggestions to other area high schools for forming Race teams and planning Volley for the Cure events. As Outstanding Individual Volunteer of the Year, Morbitzer shares this advice for those participating in their first Race for the Cure: “You may have seen footage of the race on TV or looked at pictures in the paper, but you cannot truly understand what it is like until you have participated in the race. It is an experience like no other. To think that over 50,000
