Final round of interviews next week Board plans to release names of superintendent finalists on Wednesday By CANDY BROOKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers Four finalists for the Worthington superintendent’s job are expected to go through a final round of interviews next week, but their names were not being

released as of May 10. The board was waiting to hear from a person who was being recruited for the job, Worthington school board president Marc Schare said. He said he expected to know by May 11 if that person was interested in interviewing, say-

ing the finalists’ names would be announced then. Following that candidate’s response, consultants will be able to contact three or four candidates to see if they are interested in continuing to pursue the process.

“I don’t want to dribble names out one at a time,” Schare said on May 10. The board is seeking a successor to Melissa Conrath, who is retiring. Nineteen people applied for the position, and six were chosen for the first round of interviews, which occurred

May 2, 3 and 5. Trent Bowers, Worthington’s assistant superintendent-coordinator of human resources, was among those interviewed. He was the only internal candidate. See FINALISTS, page A3

Riverlea annexation talks focus on road, sewer costs By CANDY BROOKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The cost of repairing Riverlea streets, sewers and water lines seems to be the topic that will take center stage during the city’s annexation negotiations with the village. The annexation commission, comprising three representatives of each jurisdiction, met for the

second time May 5. Worthington might annex the 545-resident village because a group of Riverlea residents petitioned for such a move. The commissioners are charged with hammering out an agreement that eventually will be placed before voters. The cost of fixing Riverlea’s roads ranges from $1.5 million to $4.1 million, depending of the ex-

tent of the repairs. Spread out over 10 years, it could add $200,000 to $500,000 a year to the city’s street improvement project. Like Worthington, Riverlea is under the direction of the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency to evaluate and update its sanitary sewers. In initial reports, Worthington city engineer Bill Watterson estimated the cost at $1 million.

Watterson will attend the May 26 annexation meeting to clarify some of the cost issues. Riverlea’s commissioners have made it clear that they do not want Riverlea residents to be assessed for any infrastructure improvements. The commission also must clarify the services currently providSee COSTS, page A2

The Worthington Board of Education on May 9 went through a long list of cuts to be expected in several areas of operation. Thirty-three positions will be eliminated from the Worthington schools over the next year in an effort to cut spending. The cuts will hit hardest at the high schools, where 14 classroom teaching positions will be eliminated. Also being cut from the high schools will be auditorium managers, activities directors, parking-lot attendants, science-lab setup assistants and security monitors from both high schools, in addition to the book-room attendant from Thomas Worthington. The Phoenix Middle School principal’s position also will be eliminated next year, and seven positions will be cut from the central administration. Board member David Bressman warned that additional cuts would come and that they would not be popular. The cuts are expected to save about $900,000, district spokesperson Vicki Gnezda said. The figure does not include the savings from nine of the classroom positions, which already were included in the financial forecast. Only half of the cost of the additional five teachers will be felt next year because of the reduction-in-force (RIF) rules that are

part of the teachers’ contracts. That calls for each teacher to receive half of his or her salary during the first year of unemployment with the district. The district faces decreasing income because of losses that probably will be written into the state budget and decreasing property values across the district. The district stands to lose nearly $1.4 million per year in state foundation funding under the proposed state budget. It will lose even more if the phase-out of the reimbursement from tangible personal property tax is accelerated at the rate proposed. Approximately $7 million will be lost over the next two years. Another $400,000 is lost each year because of electric deregulation, which went into effect several years ago. Worthington schools treasurer Jeff McCuen also projects that See CUTS, page A3

ed to Riverlea residents and how that would change if they were to become part of Worthington. Fire and police services already are provided by Worthington, but trash collection would change to Worthington’s provider, Rumpke; leaf pickup would be extended to Riverlea, which currently has none; and the frequency of snow removal probably would increase. The commission must determine if other, subtler changes, would be needed. “There may be things expected in the village that we don’t do,” Worthington city manager Matt

Greeson said. Riverlea commissioner Kirk McHugh said he doesn’t think that’s the case. The city also wants more information about strips of land on the north and south sides of the village that are owned by the village. The strips have not been given to abutting property owners, perhaps because of the cost associated with the platting process. “I can’t imagine a reason we would want to do that,” Worthington commissioner Robert Schmidt said. Riverlea lots also would have to be rezoned under the city’s code. Properties fronting North

High Street would become part of the Architectural Review District (ARD), but Riverlea commissioners said village residents don’t want the rest of the village to be part of the district. If not part of the ARD, Riverlea properties would be subject to the same zoning rules as the parts of Worthington that aren’t in the ARD. The rules govern such issues as lot coverage and setbacks but not aesthetics. “We don’t want to be treated any differently, from a taxation standpoint. I don’t know why we would want to be treated any differently, from a zoning standpoint,” Riverlea commissioner Scott Gordon said.

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

cording 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.”

panel, the other will interview with the school board. On May 19, the board will meet to discuss the results of the interviews and possibly make a choice. The community panel members to receive invitations include staff members, administrators, classified employees and representatives of community groups, as well as residents. Those who accepted the invitation are Keith Campbell, Dan Lacey, Robert Cunningham, Stephanie Donaldson, Jennifer Economus, Jim Gaskill, Matt Greeson, Wayne Harvey, Tamu Lucero, Jeff McCuen, Tim Miller, David Mordoh, Kathryn Paugh, Becky Princehorn, Holly St. Myer and Abramo Ottolenghi.

Also on the list of six were Michele Evans, superintendent of Canton City Schools; Joyce Hackett, director of curriculum-intervention programs for Columbus City Schools; Blane McCann, superintendent of schools in Shorewood, Wis.; Todd Nichols, superintendent of Bucyrus City Schools; and Lisa Wendell, superintendent of Mississinawa Valley Local Schools in Union City. Next week’s interviews will be Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, May 17-19. On each of the first two nights, finalists will meet with a panel of 15 community members. The candidates will present their visions for the Worthington schools and then take questions from the panel. Two candidates will be interviewed each Visit to night. While one candidate interacts with the see the names of the four finalists.



Continued from page A1 property values will decrease 5 percent, resulting in a loss of $900,000 to the district each year. Last October, McCuen said the district would need a 10-mill operating levy in 2012, but school board members on May 9 said they are determined to cut spending to make sure the millage is not that high. Even the Linworth Alternative Program and the Phoenix School will be considered for elimination, Bressman said, adding that he probably would receive phone calls from people supporting each. “Everything has to be on the table,� he said. That will be true after an audit of the district’s secondary schools, expected to be started in June. The audit will look at the skills and knowledge the district expects its graduates to possess when they graduate and how the schools could best be structured to meet those expectations. Board member Charlie Wilson asked if combining the two high schools would be considered. He emphasized that he does not favor such a move. Yes, said Mark Glasbrenner, who was acting as superintendent during the board meeting be-

cause Melissa Conrath was not present. Any such change would require the input of the community, he said. Eight community members, including several high school students, addressed the board about their concerns. Among the teaching positions to be eliminated are one from the art department of Thomas Worthington and one from Worthington Kilbourne. Art classes will be larger and some students will not be served because of the cuts, the teachers and students said. Chad Ellwood is senior class president at Worthington Kilbourne. He didn’t know he liked art until he took it as an elective, he said. Now he has taken three years of ceramics, and the loss of opportunity for students will be felt, he said. “Art is a lot of the reason some students come to school,� he said. Students and teachers spoke against the elimination of the auditorium manager positions. They are needed to take care of the sophisticated equipment in the auditoriums, the students said. Not only will productions not be as good without them, but there also could be safety problems created, they said.

Plans call for construction to begin in the summer, with a goal for completion in time for the 2011 holiday season. Current stores will remain open during construction. No new retail or restaurant tenants have been announced. A women’s advisory board is providing input into what the women of the community want to see, according to the release. The new name was designed to reflect its history, with “Worthington� and “Place� indicating it is the “place to shop, dine and relax,� said Tom Carter, local resident and one of the mall’s new owners. The mall’s name has changed more than once. It began as the Worthington Square shopping center and then became Worthington Mall with new ownership in the 1990s. After about a decade as Worthington Mall, new owners came in and returned the Worthington Square name.

are invited to speak. The KKK visit many years ago comes to mind. As advocated by the Partners in Citizenship and Character (PCC) organization, the Worthington community has adopted the words “respect� and “compassion� as part of its emphasis on citizenship and character. These concepts are presented by members of the Circle of Grandparents (sponsored by PCC) to children in every elementary school in the district In their actions at military funerals, the Westboro Baptist Church members embody neither respect nor compassion. By their actions, they use religion to bolster their self-righteousness without regard to the pain inflicted to others. Neither respect for the fallen nor compassion for the grieving families are seen in their exercise of their First Amendment rights. I agree with school board president Marc Schare that it is important that students, especially those who are or soon will be voters, hear and process with class discussions at an intellectual level those differing views and behaviors that, for better or worse, make this country what it is.

To the editor: I am writing in support of the invitation that has been extended to the Westboro Baptist Church by the teachers of the senior-level U.S. Political Thought and Radicalism class at Worthington Kilbourne High School. This church group is wellknown for its demonstrations at the funerals of men and women who fell in the line of duty defending the values of this country.

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.

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 contacts, we will tackle a full schedule of objectives. The first target is to visit headquarters of our existing businesses to thank 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

Kilbourne’s Cody Strayer is mobbed at the plate by his teammates on May 6 after hitting a two-run home run during a 5-3 victory over Thomas Worthington in OCC-Central Division play.


Kilbourne opens tourney with victory By SCOTT GERFEN ThisWeek Community Newspapers Being the defending OCC-Central Division champion, the Worthington Kilbourne High School baseball team didn’t expect to enter the Division I district tournament with a losing record. The Wolves have been inconsistent at the plate and on the mound. “As a team, we’ve just done things that have held us back,” senior Alio Gasbarro said. “But recently our bats

have been coming around and we’ve been hitting. At this point, it all depends on if everybody wants it or not.” Kilbourne looked like a team that didn’t want its season to end in its tournament opener on May 9 against Newark, as it won 7-6 in eight innings to improve to 11-11 overall. Gasbarro, who pitched the eighth in relief of Cody Strayer, picked up the win to improve to 3-4. Gasbarro pitched a two-hitter in a 5-3 victory over Thomas Worthington on May 5.

“We had some high expectations, but we’ve just been so inconsistent,” coach Jeff Boulware said. “With the rain, it’s been difficult. You build yourself up to play and it’s just been hard to get into any rhythm. But it’s been the same for everyone.” The Wolves played host to Dresden Tri-Valley or Westerville South in a second-round tournament game on May 11, with the winner facing top-seeded Pickerington North or Groveport in a district semifinal on Monday, May 16,

at Hamilton Township. If Kilbourne reaches a district final, it would face eighth-seeded Olentangy Orange, ninth-seeded Grove City, 12thseeded Hilliard Darby or Thomas on Wednesday, May 18, at Hilliard Davidson. “I think we’re a team that’s starting to put things together,” Boulware said before the win over Newark. “We’ve been getting base runners, but I think we’ve been a team that’s tightening up at the plate. It’s just going to take that

one guy stepping up and getting a big hit.” Against Newark, the Wolves scored twice in the bottom of the seventh to force the extra inning. Strayer, who pitched seven innings, was 4-1 with a 2.55 ERA entering the postseason. Another key starter for the Wolves is freshman Jacob Niggemeyer, who was 4-1 with a 2.84 ERA through 21 See BASEBALL, page B3

Wolves end losing streak against Cards

Wolves’ Loveday making impact

By JEREMY STEWART ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Members of the Worthington Kilbourne High School softball team finally know what it feels like to beat Thomas Worthington. The Wolves defeated Thomas 10-6 on May 6, marking their first win over the Cardinals since the Worthington Classic in 2004. The teams met again in 2007 and ’08 in the Classic — the event was rained out in 2005 and ‘06 — and began playing twice a season in 2009 when they became OCC-Central Division rivals. “We called it ‘The Curse,’” Kilbourne catcher Alexis Williams said of the drought against Thomas. “We definitely wanted to break the curse and we finally did, so that feels good.” Thomas won the first meeting this season 4-3 in 11 innings on April 18. The Cardinals appeared to be on their way to another win in the second meeting, as they

loaded the bases in the top of the first inning. However, the Wolves limited Thomas to only one run that inning and then scored five in the bottom of the inning. With one out in the top of the seventh inning, the game was delayed because of lightning. During the delay, it started to rain and the game was called. Kilbourne coach John Warinner is hoping the victory sparks a deep postseason run. “This is a great win at the right time,” he said. “We struggled a little bit (in a 5-4 win over Whitehall on May 5). We came back to win that one and it was a nice way to end that game. (Against Thomas), the girls did what they needed to do and scored five runs in the first inning.” Starting strong has been a point of emphasis this year for the Wolves after they tended to start slow last season en route to finishing 11-17. “We try to (score early) against all the teams we play,” Williams said. “Last year we tried to come

Hannah Loveday has endured quite a culture shock the past nine months. The sophomore thrower for the Worthington Kilbourne High School girls track and field team moved into the district from Gallipolis, doubling the number of her classmates. But not only has Loveday adapted to her new surroundings, she has become an important asset for the Wolves. “Gallipolis is like a hick town. I’m not used to being close to everyone or everything,” she said. “If you need to get some milk or something from the store, you had to plan things out. Now, you just get in the car and go get it.” Loveday arrived at Kilbourne with an impressive résumé. Last spring as a freshman at Gallipolis Gallia Academy, she placed

The Wolves, who are seeded fifth, had a firstround bye. The second-round winner plays

The semifinal winner likely faces second-seeded Gahanna or 11thseeded Pickerington Central in a district final May 19 at Pickerington Central.

For the Worthington Kilbourne High School boys lacrosse team, the Midwest Scholastic Lacrosse Coaches Association tournament May 6-7 at Hudson Western Reserve Academy was a painful refresher course on what happens when a team lets an opponent hang around. The Wolves placed second in the fourteam “B” bracket after squandering a sixgoal lead in the second half of a 10-9 loss to Pittsburgh Mount Lebanon. “We need to view this as a lesson,” coach Drew May said. “We have to learn how to put away a team when we have the chance. We were up 9-3 in the third quarter, but we couldn’t put them away. “That’s been a little bit of an issue this season. You just have to go out and execute.” After Mount Lebanon took the lead with 3:30 left, Kilbourne had two shots

Seeded fourth in the Division I North/Central Region tournament, the Cardinals will open against Olentangy Liberty or Delaware in the second round on Wednesday, May 18.

Boys Tennis

Players turn attention to sectional tourney From staff reports 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. “We still have the goal of getting as many individuals as we can on to the state tournament.” 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.

Sports briefs Henderson quits as Thomas coach

Cardinals’ Davis to swim at Xavier

Taylor named Warriors coach

Jeff Henderson has stepped down as coach of the Thomas Worthington boys cross country team after guiding the Cardinals for four seasons. In 2010, Thomas finished sixth (141 points) at the OCCCentral Division meet behind Dublin Coffman (25), Hilliard Darby (65), Hilliard Davidson (74), Upper Arlington (111) and Central Crossing (132) and ahead of Kilbourne (147) and Westland (250). The Cardinals then placed 14th (318) in the 18-team Division I, district 3 meet behind champion Westerville North (52). Senior Will Maier (53rd, 17:28.11), freshman Jack Dotts (61st, 17:36.66), junior Albert Darling (62nd, 17:37.59), senior Ray Crook (70th, 17:48.22) and junior Adam Withers (72nd, 17:50.18) scored. None of the runners advanced to state.

Carly Davis, a four-time Division I state qualifier for the Thomas Worthington High School swimming and diving team, signed a letter of intent May 9 to swim for Xavier University. Davis was on the 11th-place 400-yard freestyle relay and the 20th-place 200 free relay at the state meet last winter.

Midge Taylor has been named girls tennis coach at Worthington Christian. Taylor served as an assistant last fall under Scott Smart, who resigned after four seasons. The Warriors went a program-best 18-2 in dual matches last fall and had two individuals and one doubles team advance to the Division II district tournament.

The district final is May 19 at Pickerington Central, with the likely opponent being top-seeded Central Crossing. “We’re not going to look ahead,” coach Tom Gianas said. “We have to play each game and, even with the district tournament, we can’t get ahead of it.” Gianas also is looking for his team to stay focused in its remaining OCC-Central games. The Cardinals played Westland on May 11 and play host to Upper Arlington on Friday, May 13. They also must make up a league game against Central Crossing, which is led by pitcher Savannah Dorsey. Thomas could benefit from facing Dorsey before its potential matchup with the Comets in a district final. Gianas and Central Crossing coach Rona Dorsey talked on May 9 but did not decide on a makeup date.

We focused on the importance of leaving it and putting everything we have out there.” Although the Cardinals played two Pennsylvania teams in the Cleveland Heights Invitational on April 29-30, McCarthy got to scout several possible opponents, including St. Ursula and Hudson, the top seed in the North/Central Region. That same weekend, she posted her 100th win with a 12-2 victory over Canonsburg (Pa.) Peters Township on April 29. “I was really surprised,” said McCarthy, who is in her seventh season with the Cardinals. “You look at the wins and the losses and the memories.

Notre Dame 11-6 on April 2, but coach Doug Troutner believes any information garnered from that game might be outdated. “We can make some vague generalities about how each team played the first time, but I’m sure both teams have come a long way since then,” Troutner said. “I think it could be a very good game.” According to Troutner, Kilbourne has improved in the draw circle since the first matchup with Mount Notre Dame.

Cameron primarily has been handling the draw for the Wolves, with Mariah Minichello also seeing action in the draw circle. “But it’s also the people on the outside (of the draw circle),” Troutner said. “They’re getting ground balls, hustling and boxing opponents out. In the end, it doesn’t matter which way the ball goes. It’s who comes up with the ball that counts.”

TRACK Continued from page B1 sixth in the shot put at the Division II state meet with a throw of 39 feet. This year, her best throws have been 37-2 1/2 in the shot put and 114-9 in the discus. “It can be easy to get lost when you come from a smaller school like Hannah did, coming from 100 to 150 kids in your class to over 300. That can be difficult,” girls coach Chip Seely said. “But Hannah has already scored over 100 points and has missed two meets. She has surpassed (the point total) that anyone had last year and she’s only competing in two events instead of four. “She is averaging about 15 points per meet and has always been in the top three in the shot (put) and discus in all of the big meets we have been at.” Loveday, whose father, Walter, was a thrower at North Gallia High School and Marietta College, said she has natural talent in the throwing events. “I feel like I’m built for (throwing) with broad shoulders and muscular build,” she said. “In the shot (put), (my success is built) mostly on my technique. You can be as strong as you want, but if you don’t have good technique, you can’t throw the shot. If you don’t have technique, you can throw it maybe 40 feet, but not much farther. “The discus is also about technique, but it is also about speed and smoothness. Sometimes I try to muscle (the discus), but that doesn’t work. You have to be smooth and calm when you throw the discus.” Seely believes Loveday is driven to succeed. “When Hannah came here, we were showing her the facilities and we have an honor board

to go out for track. “I started in the seventh grade, but I actually didn’t want to go out,” she said. “I had a friend, Erin Fisher, who wanted to do it so badly. She quit at the end of the season, and I stayed with it.” On April 30 in the Gary Smith Invitational at Thomas Worthington, Loveday placed first in the shot put (35-7) and second in the discus (109-2). Later that day, she was in a car accident, as she tried to dodge tire tread that came loose from a tractor trailer. The accident left her with a stiff neck, leaving her participation in the OCC-Central Division meet on Thursday, May 12, and Saturday, May 14, at Hilliard Davidson in jeopardy. If she can’t compete in the league meet, she hopes to be back for the Division I district meet, which will be held May 17-19 and May 21 at Hilliard Bradley. “Hannah will be checked out and we’ll see what she can do (for the OCC-Central),” Seely said. “You never know with a neck injury and you want to make sure everything is OK before she competes.” Loveday awaits her chance to return to competition. “My goals are to get 45 feet in the shot and 130 feet in the discus, but that might be difficult to reach after the accident,” she said. “I have come close to those in practice but not during a competition.” “Hannah is one of the most talented athletes on the team,” Sarmiento said. “She is always there to encourage other athletes to step up and do well. She has a lot of maturity and hopefully she will be healthy for the league and district meets.”

She is extremely focused. She takes coaching well. She doesn’t look at it as criticism, but as a way to improve.” Despite her lineage, Loveday had to be encouraged by a friend

They’ll be around, however, for the choir’s 15th birthday season, which closes with concerts Sunday, May 15, at Capital University’s Mees Hall. The season’s theme has been “The World of Music,” and that theme continues both by virtue of the program itself — which includes music by Canadian and Danish composers, a Chinese folk song, South African freedom song Siyahamba and more — but also the welcoming of guest performers Con Brio children’s choir (3 p.m. performance) and the Columbus International Children’s Choir (7 p.m.). “It’s amazing,” longtime music director Sandra Mathias told The Beat. “We’re really excited. We’ve invited kids back who’ve been with us in all that time” for the concerts. Tickets are $10/$8. Call (614) 220-5555.

Worthington Inn has revamped spring menu MENU

The backs of the rock-tour-apt black T-shirts worn by busboys read: “Local, Fresh and Natural since 1831.” On the restaurant's Twitter feed — near notices by G.A. Benton for its just-released spring menu and a wine dinner featuring grilled quail, ramps and morel mushrooms — was this: “I already know because you’ve seen this cook with wine, sometimes I even add it reviews headline and photos. to the food. (W.C. Fields).” What cheeky But do you take my point? Mention eatery could I be speaking of? OK, you the extraordinary Worthington Inn, and too often people say “great Sunday brunch” and then, as the image of an expensive and vintage joint visited with parents takes hold, the conversation sputters. And that is sad. Yes, the greatingredient- and creative-chef-drivBy Jodi Miller/ThisWeek en Worthington King's Farm chicken entree at the Worthington Inn. Inn exists in the

uppermost echelons of Columbus restaurants, so it can be pricey. And sure, it’s housed in a museum-quality, 19th-century country mansion. But the inn offers some oh-so-good values and isn’t in the least lagging behind our local-ingredient-focused fine-dining scene. If you doubt these things, you’re likely the one lagging. Part of the Worthington Inn’s 2011 spring menu is its revamped pub offerings available in the casual bar area (where terrific jazz bands play on Friday and Saturday evenings) and the front-porch-like patio. From that short food list, the Ohioraised, grass-fed beef Lights Out Burger ($13) was a knockout. Arriving on a toasted, locally baked Stan Evans sesame-seed bun was a lean and mean heavyweight-champion patty with a killer grilled crust. This juicy mauler is brilliant, robed in thick-cut, super-crispy bacon, fun “tobacco onions” (like ungreasy onion straws), arugula, cheddar cheese and a zingy and sweet barbecuetype sauce. In the burger’s corner were

terrific, fresh house-transformed pickles and nifty hand-cut fries. Some extra cheap selections from the pub menu are the thin and snappy-crusted Grilled Flatbreads. These come in either a surprisingly spicy meat version (with hot Italian sausage and banana peppers) or a rich and pungent veggie (with Point Reyes bleu cheese, shiitake mushrooms, spinach and caramelized onions). Both are half-priced during happy hour (3-7 p.m. Monday through Friday), setting you back about $5. At $2.50, the clever Cucumber-Chili Ceviche is always cheap and bursting with light, lively and refreshing flavors. Here, big hunks of cucumber are bathed in fresh lime, a habanero zest heating up and cooling off sprinkles of cilantro. The new dinner menu frequently — and winningly — unites Mediterranean cuisine with Asian flavors and French techniques. Thus a lovely duck appetizer special ($14) presented beautiful, fanned-out pink fowl gently “black tea smoked.” Accompanying the meat was

a neat peanut-buttery noodle salad (with slivered veggies and spicy nuts) plus a not-gloppy sweet chili sauce. Ginger and sesame oil tied together the plate’s clean flavors. Also great was the Spring Lamb ($32). Perfectly grilled, succulent chops were outfitted with fluffy couscous topped with a racy artichoke and harissa ragu, plus the yin and yang of minty tzatziki and sriracha sauces. If you think chicken, mashed potatoes and green beans sound humdrum (they do), try them here and you'll think again. A black-peppery crusted, locally raised free-range half bird (with a deboned thigh) arrived with a rich demi-like morel gravy, tangy spuds and a buttery and pretty succotash of haricots verts, squash and tomatoes. Dessert-wise, the shortcake-like Strawberry Molly ($8) similarly added cheffy verve (and white chocolate mousse) to another spring-flinging favorite. The moral (and morel) of this story: the inn is in.

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 subs-only 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 said. “If they’re providing what is perceived by the guest as a true value, they’ll fit in and generate their own kind of market excitement,” he said. DiBella’s is open lunch and dinner hours daily. For more information, call (614) 717-1111.

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. 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.

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

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

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.

Truly Amazing 215 Acre Farm in Southeast Ohio. Here, here! Get your farm here! This is an absolutely spectacular 215 m/l acre farm in Morgan County. With approximately 80 acres of tillable bottomland, a year-round creek, house and barns, and mineral rights (ATO)! Its located at the end of the dead-end road, so it offers plenty of privacy and you hear only what nature has to offer! The wooded hillsides offer plenty of cov er for deer and turkeys. If you are a hunter like me, then youll be slobbering at the mouth when you see this piece! The land is nice and fertile for farming (or food plots). Last year, the open ground was used for such things as corn, hay, food plots, and pasture. The uses of this property are limitless! The 3 bed room house is partially fin ished, so you can add your finishing touches. There are 2 cabins, one large barn, 2 milk houses, and several other sheds/barns. Did I mention the historical covered bridge over the creek? It does not come with the property, but is rather an old crossing on the township road that is only available for crossing on foot. Very neat!!! If you are looking for a true, one of a kind farm, then do yourself a favor and sched ule your showing! Call Brooks at 740-591-3279

State funding aids early detection In December of 1989 Elizabeth Cassady’s mother Roberta informed her “We realize that it’s unrealistic to expect the BCCP to family that she had been diagnosed receive more funding during these tough economic with breast cancer.

So every year she would er’s diagnosis and her higher risk. mother’s diagnosis Elizabeth was 25-

“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. Last year, the Ohio BCCP screened See STATE, on page C3

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 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

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

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-

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.

It’s spring cleaning — German Village style. Village Valuables, described as central Ohio’s largest yard sale, will be held throughout the neighborhood from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 14. “It is a spectacle,” longtime participant Jerry Glick said. “You would not believe the things up for sale.” Glick said the sale is so big, people often plan their vacations around it. “There are busloads of people who come, even from out of state, for this because it’s like 300 yard sales at one time in one neighborhood,” he said. Glick and friends will sell everything from furniture to books to Ohio State paraphernalia. He’ll even have a sailboat — well, at least a picture of one. The real thing is docked at Buckeye Lake.
