Marysville retains Aa3 bond credit rating By LIN RICE ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Marysville has retained its Aa3 bond credit rating, the second-highest rating a city can have, Mayor John Gore announced May 12. City officials spoke with Moody’s In- John vestors Services on May 11 in prepara- Gore

tion for the renewal of a $24.75 million Wastewater Improvement Bond Anticipation Note (BAN), Gore said at Marysville City Council’s regular meeting May 12. Moody’s released

its report affirming the rating on May 11, Gore said. “This is the second-highest rating a city can have, and there are only eight cities in Ohio that have a higher rating,” Gore said. “We’re pretty proud to have that rating.” A bond credit rating assesses the credit worthiness of a government’s debt is-

sues, and is akin to a credit rating for an individual. Gore said some of the reasons listed in the report for Marysville’s rating include the city’s stable economic employment base, specifically the developments that have occurred at Coleman’s Crossing and City Gate, along with expansion projects at Scotts LawnService

and voters’ support of the city’s last income tax increase request. Finance director Jenny Chavarria said the credit rating asserts that the city’s debt is viewed as a limited credit risk. “Cities that achieve this rating have superior credit quality, have established See MARYSVILLE, page A2

Relay For Life a special event for three friends

FAMILY FINE ART NIGHT

By LIN RICE

ThisWeek Community Newspapers

For Marysville resident and cancer survivor Sharon Daniels, the upcoming Relay For Life is more than just a fundraiser. It’s a chance for her to connect with others who truly understand what it means to be a survivor. “It’s a day of birthdays,” Daniels said. “It’s a day to see people you maybe haven’t seen for a year, and to celebrate the fact that the good Lord has let us be here another year.” Daniels is one of three “musketeers” who have been selected as honorary chairs for this year’s Marysville Relay on May 20-21. She and her close friends, Becky Charles and Becky Wiant, have their own team to raise funds for cancer research this year, a team they have kept together for nearly seven years. Joining the Relay For Life was

rating in light of the country’s fiscal problems speaks highly of the city. “Maintaining the rating we already have, especially in these tough economic times and the fact that we can keep up with what we’re doing here, we felt pretty good about that,” Gore said.

That passion helped sell me that everyone feels this way about this community, and it’s a community I want to be a major factor in.” Currently the service director for the

city of Gahanna, Emery was selected from a pool of 36 applicants to take over for former administrator Jillian Froment.

Becky Charles lives just two doors down from me, and it was just miraculous to have that ability to orate your irate feelings.” All three of the women have children roughly the same ages, and their diagnoses fell while several of the children were in high school, Daniels said. Chauffeuring teens to dance or choir practice regularly would have been a nearly impossible task, she said, except that the three women all pitched in to get things done. “With friends, it’s horrible that they’re facing it, but they understand a little better what you’re going through,” Daniels said. “Because you go through stages. You go through anger, and acceptance, and “I don’t have time for this. With Becky and Becky, a very difficult family situation was made very much easier.” Their team spirit naturally led to a name for the ladies’ relay team — The Three Musketeers.

“One for all and all for one, it’s how it has been,” Wiant said. Their showing of solidarity for the Marysville relay goes a long way toward inspiring others, said Angela Gamble, the public relations chairwoman for Relay For Life of Union County. “These three women serve as an example of the power of friendship, and I believe they are an inspiration to others,” Gamble said. “Each of the friends speaks about the importance of enjoying the journey and maintaining a sense of humor. We are so happy they agreed to serve as our honorary chairs.” To raise awareness of the various forms cancer takes, this year’s Marysville relay has been dubbed Colors of Cancer. At various times in the evening, survivors of a different form of cancer will be honored, and the color used to represent that form will be featured. Daniels said the idea is to make all cancer survivors feel a part of the group, no matter what form their illness has taken. “We let people know, it doesn’t matter what kind of cancer. Cancer is cancer. But with good friends, you can beat it.”

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.

Engineer: New law will divert gas-tax funds away from county By LIN RICE ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Page A3

Eye-popping efficiency

Just ONE of the reasons 9 out of 10 people who talk to us, choose our water softeners.

Very late in the bill’s (House Bill 114) final drafting, language was inserted that raises the legal load limits of many trucks traveling our roadways. Intensive efforts, including testimony by engineers across Ohio to explain the impacts of the changes, were ignored. Our roads will ultimately suffer and the taxpayer will ultimately pay the bill.

While local government officials across the state are waiting to see how the emerging state budget will affect their bottom lines, the Union County engineer’s office already has begun to incorporate some of the initial changes. County engineer Jeff Stauch said some of the major components of the transportation bill (House Bill 114), which was signed into law by Gov. John Kasich on March 30, will have a definite impact on Union County. Jeff Stauch Of particular interest to engineers is the redirection of some gasoline tax dollars to the Ohio State Highway Patrol (OSHP), and an increase on commercial vehicle weight limits, Stauch said. “Before 2004, the highway patrol was primarily funded through the gas tax, which accounted for about $185 million annually to the patrol,” he said. “In 2004 that dependency started to be phased out because there was a really strong effort to use the gas tax as a user fee for infrastructure improvements, which is really the best use for that kind of fee. If you’re filling up your car at the pump, it makes sense that that would go right back into the roads.” When H.B. 114 goes into effect in July, about $19 million will be diverted annually from local municipalities to the OSHP. “That deducted loss is not a tremendous amount … that tax has been remaining flat because of reduced fuel revenues,” Stauch said. The engineer’s office estimates the shift would pull about $25,000 to $30,000 annually from its budget, Stauch said. About $2.37 million of the Union County engineer’s office budget (38 percent) comes from the motor vehicle fuel fund. Commercial vehicles rolling along Union County’s highways also will be allowed to carry heavier loads once H.B. 114 goes into effect, Stauch said, increasing wear and tear. “Very late in the bill’s final drafting, language

was inserted that raises the legal load limits of many trucks traveling our roadways,” Stauch said. “Intensive efforts, including testimony by engineers across Ohio to explain the impacts of the changes, were ignored. Our roads will ultimately suffer and the taxpayer will ultimately pay the bill.” Ohio Revised Code sets the maximum weight imposed on the road by a vehicle with pneumatic tires as 20,000 pounds on any axle, or 34,000 pounds on any tandem axle, with another formula to determine maximum weight for two-or-moreconsecutive-axle vehicles. “The numbers may be pulled back out in a new law, since things have been so fluid, but what (H.B. 114) does with most of these vehicles is increase the gross weight by about 5.5 percent,” Stauch said. “Originally, 7 percent was proposed, but that threshold may depend on the vehicle.” The transportation bill won’t affect Union County in terms of Ohio Public Works Funding, Stauch added. “Fortunately, this state funding stream for local agencies has been left intact for 2011,” he said. Union County has secured $979,000 in grant funds for road resurfacing and bridge replacements. lrice@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekNews.com

A weather report, followed by a joke

2005 Ford Expedition

So this is how it’s going to be. Ohio is known for its mercurial weather, of course, to the point that even bringing it up seems stale, like re-telling that joke about the insomniac, but what we’ve seen here lately is freakish, even for Ohio. Speaking of Ohio, how is it that Indiana doesn’t get teased on the playground about its weather? If Ohio is changeable, doesn’t it stand to reason that Indiana would be too, not to mention Kentucky and Pennsylvania and Michigan and so on? Weather doesn’t come to a screeching halt at the state line, like a cartoon roadrunner. If it did, I’d expect a package from the Acme Weather Co. to show up, at which point the Ohio weather would change into something more comfortable, something suitable for, say, Muncie, Indiana. But it doesn’t, because the weather in Muncie is almost exactly like the weather in Cincinnati, for all that people insist on saying, “If you don’t like the weather in Ohio, wait a minute.” (I could hardly force myself to type that, I’m so tired of hearing it.) Frankly, I think people in Ohio and people in Indiana are all wearing pretty much the same clothes: rain ponchos, polypropylene triclimate thermal pants and something slimming in seersucker. But that’s a cartoon for another day. Today we’re examining what appears to be a gauntlet flung down on the local weather map: Take this, Ohio. “This,” of course, being unusually wet weather, unusually windy weather, unusually cold weather and even unusually frosty weather, followed by the day on which I speak, which offers unusually hot, muggy, humid weather. And when I say hot I mean hot. Parking-lot asphalt had the shimmery look of mid-August as I hiked across it to the grocery store entrance. “It’s very warm,” I mentioned to the young woman who sold me my coffee, and she murmured in agreement, apparently reluctant to risk raising her body temperature from the exertion of speaking louder. At home, I opened several windows before settling in to the business of sitting very still, a trick I learned in second grade. In fact, it may have been the only thing I learned in second grade: Take your seat and put your head down on your desk after running around on the playground after lunch. My teacher had us do this every warm day, and each time she issued her instructions I doubted

they’d do any good. I was too flushed, too short of breath and too sticky to recover without going home to MARGO take a bath. Ten minBARTLETT utes later – 10 quiet, motionless minutes later – the teacher would tell us to raise our heads, and darned if we all hadn’t regained, more or less, our resting heart rates and our usual complexions. The transformation caused me to look with real respect at my teacher, the unfortunately named Mrs. Piggot. How did she know that would work? It seemed magical then and it still did the other day, when I used the same technique to cool off during a meeting: Sit very very still. Don’t move even a tiny bit. And sure enough, after a few minutes – and perhaps a very brief nap – I was back to normal. The magical Mrs. Piggot! I bless you to this day. But my point is this: Why the need for cooling-off magic when it’s only the middle of May? Why are citizens swooning in the streets from heat exhaustion when just last week they were huddled around electric heaters and still shivering?

Didn’t we have snow squalls a few days ago? Weren’t we chipping away at windshield ice in April? Of course we were, and I’d be a fool not to brace myself for more of the same in the weeks to come. That is, I’m not swearing that it will snow before June, but neither am I swearing that it won’t. Because you see how it is. Last week we had winds and rain and destructive floods, and now we have the sort of heat that causes babies to fret and brides to faint in a heap of collapsing tulle. And who knows what lies in store for Memorial Day high school band musicians? They’ll either suffer in the blinding sun or nearly catch their deaths of cold. Or not. It may be a perfect Ohio day: Mild, breezy and smelling of honeysuckle, even though as far as I know we don’t have honeysuckle around here. And why do I say this? Because the weather has issued her pronouncement: This is how it’s going to be. Now for the joke. Did you hear about the dyslexic, agnostic insomniac? He was up all night wondering if there really is a dog.

Marysville residents can now find fresh fruits, vegetables and hand-made crafts in the middle of Uptown, with the return of the Union County Farmers Market. Market organizer Kathy Custer said the market, which kicked off May 15, could be affected by this spring’s heavy rains, but should still have a variety of items for shoppers. “We’re just playing it by ear the first week, and hopefully by next weekend if the weather warms and the sun starts making a more steady presence, the strawberries and lettuces will start to grow,” Custer said. “Hopefully we’ll have some rhubarb and asparagus to start off, the perennials.” Beginning its 26th year, the farmers market convenes once a week in the Marysville city parking lot at the corner of Sixth and Main streets. Several dozen vendors typically fill the lots, selling locally grown food and other crafted items. Depending on the month, Custer said, vendors typically have different items for sale. “To start off we’ll have baked goods, plants and some small trees Plain City resident Carlton Rausch sells his melons at the 2010 for sale, the perennials,” she said.

Commentary

Bradley standout loves softball When I was talking with a veteran high school softball coach in central Ohio about Hilliard Bradley’s talented senior, Kellie Roudabush, he told me, “It’s simple, Larry. This girl can flat out hit a softball.” And that is what this Jaguars standout has been doing all season. Through 18 LARRY games, Roudabush was LARSON batting .576 with seven doubles, three triples, four home runs and 20 RBI. She also has been stellar as a pitcher with a 10-2 record and a 1.99 ERA, but it’s her offense that has sparked Bradley to 15 wins in those 18 games. “I work very hard at every aspect of softball, but right now I have more confidence swinging the bat than the other parts of the game,” Roudabush said. “I do tee-work every day as I constantly try to improve as a hitter, and before we play I take a 10-minute jog and try to visualize what I am going to do at bat against their pitcher. All of that helps me focus on what I want to complete. When I am at bat I clear everything else out of my mind because I want no distractions and, until there are two strikes on me, I look for my pitch. “I guess I would be called a power hitter and I am striving to be a complete hitter, and that means taking what’s given to me and going with the pitch. When I was a freshman, I pulled everything and now, as I have matured, I have learned how to hit the outside pitch and how to hit the outside pitch with power. “I feel like I am a coachable athlete and I have been lucky to have coach (Kevin) Moody with me at both Hilliard Darby and here at Bradley. I have had my summer coaches and my dad work with me and they have been able to change my swing at times, teach me not to hit off my front foot too much, how to use my hips for power in my swing and the importance of following through when you hit. I think I have learned well.” In the circle, Roudabush likes to rely on her full arsenal of pitches. “I have become the type of pitcher who can definitely bring the fastball, but I like to mix up my pitches to keep the opponents off balance,” she said. “I am very confident with my screwball right now and I never want the batters to know what is coming. I am also very confident with my teammates behind me on defense. Practice is definitely paying off with our team and we are learning to pick each other up if a mistake is made. Remember since Bradley is a new school we have only been together for two seasons. But everyone gets along and, even though I had two great years at Darby, I am glad I am

Track team eyeing regional berths By FRANK DiRENNA ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Marysville High School boys track and field coach Jim Gannon points to his big three when asked about his team’s potential at the Division I district meet. The Monarchs will compete in the district 2 meet on Tuesday, May 17, Thursday, May 19, and Saturday, May 21, at Hilliard Bradley. The top four finishers in each event advance to the regional meet May 25 and 27 at Pickerington North. Gannon hopes to qualify several athletes for regional but said Julian Williams in the 100 and 200 meters, Hayes Chrispin in the 300 hurdles and Jordan Staats in the high jump have the best chance to advance. “I definitely want to make an appearance at regional and do as well as I can to go even further,” said Staats, who had cleared a personal-best 6 feet, 2 inches this season before competing in the OCC-Cardinal Division meet May 12 and 14. “To compete in regionals, I’d love to be at 6-6 at the end of the season.” Last season, the boys team finished sixth (32.5 points) in the district 2 meet behind champion Olentangy Liberty (121), with Chrispin and Williams advancing to regional as members of the 800 and 1,600 relay. At regional, the 1,600 relay finished eighth (3 minutes, 25.51 seconds) and the 800 relay was 10th (1:31.47). “Those guys made it to regional last season and I’m sure a good way to end your career would be to make the state meet,” Gannon said. “Hayes has a shot in the 300 (hurdles), but he has to run probably his See LARSON, page B2 best race of the year every time

in the 1,600. Other girls expected to contend for a regional berth include Anna Mogielnicki in the 400, Jenny Sperry and Jessica Winkline in the discus and shot put, and Gracia Cooper, Aly Heeb and Mikayla Mosey in the 200. “That’s going to be a really fun race to watch,” Ritchie said of the 200. The 400, 800 and 3,200 relays also have a chance to advance, according to Ritchie. “This is such a young team,” Ritchie said. “The freshmen really have no idea what the postseason is all about with their experience at middle school. The upperclassmen know what this is all about. They’ve really stepped it up in leadership qualities in the last couple of weeks to get the young girls ready.” Last season in the district 2 meet, the Monarchs were fifth (73.5) behind champion Reynoldsburg (115). Kate Francisco, a 2010 graduate who is playing basketball at Kent State University, was the Monarchs’ lone regional qualifier a year ago, tying Thomas Worthington’s Chioma Umunnibuki for second (5-2) in the high jump. Francisco went on to finish 11th (5-2) at state. •The softball team lost to Dresden Tri-Valley for the second time in less than two weeks, with the rematch coming in the second round of the Division I tournament at By Tim Norman/ThisWeek district Marysville.

Tri-Valley scored two runs in the top of the first inning before Marysville cut its deficit to 2-1 in the bottom of the first on an RBI double by Rachael Mullaney. However, the Scotties scored four runs in the second inning to take control. Tri-Valley, which defeated Independence 42-0 in five innings in the first round, outhit the Monarchs 15-3. “Tri-Valley is just a solid team,” coach Jennifer SegnerMaxwell said. “They don’t make very many mistakes. They have solid pitching, but it’s hittable pitching. Their strength is their hitting. They are a good hitting team.” Marysville lost to Tri-Valley 12-2 in five innings on April 30. “The last time we faced them, we did not play well and I thought that we could come out, hit the ball better, have better defense, and we didn’t,” Segner-Maxwell said.

County pitches in for Japan disaster relief By LIN RICE ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Although the natural disasters that rocked Japan in March were halfway around the globe, Union County residents have been opening their wallets and pocketbooks to help with relief efforts. Shortly after a 9.0-magnitude earthquake and resulting tsunami destroyed much of northeastern Japan two months ago, a group of county agencies and volunteers under the banner of “Union County Cares” began collecting money in the community, intending to filter the raised funds through international aid organizations such as the Red Cross. The dollars have been adding up, according to Cindy Morley-Shanklin, executive director of the American Red Cross Union County Chapter. “From Union County so far, for the

From Union County so far, for the Red Cross we’ve had about $18,000 brought in here, in addition to what we’ve received from the Union County Foundation. And actually we’re still getting a little more funds from some of the schools; every little bit counts.

CINDY MORLEY-SHANKLIN — executive director of the American Red Cross Union County Chapter

Red Cross we’ve had about $18,000 brought in here, in addition to what we’ve received from the Union County Foundation,” she said. “And actually we’re still getting a little more funds from some of the schools; every little bit counts.” Although the loss of life and property that took place in Japan on March 11 will more than likely be measured in the billions of dollars, Morley-Shanklin

said the Red Cross is doing what it can to help. “It’s going to take billions and billions of dollars to help Japan out,” she said. “The information I get from the National Red Cross is that there are still some people living in shelters.” In addition to Red Cross donations, the Union County Foundation has received $6,750 over the past two months, $5,000 of which was given to

the Red Cross. “I was really happy with that,” Morley-Shanklin said. “Donations have slowed down a bit, but we’ve also had people bringing in money for the Alabama tornados. People around here are just really generous, and we’re fortunate that Union County cares so much.” Morley-Shanklin said that when dollars from the county come through her office specifically earmarked for Japanese relief, they are then sent on to the National Red Cross, which has been overseeing their release internationally. As of last week, the National Red Cross had sent more than $200 million to Japan for relief efforts, she said. Morley-Shanklin said that while monetary donations work best for helping the Japanese relief effort, donated blood is in high demand to help with recent storms and flooding that have ravaged the American South and Midwest. The

Red Cross Union County Chapter will host several blood drives throughout this month, including: • 1-7 p.m. May 23 at the Union County YMCA, 1150 Charles Lane, Marysville. • 2-7 p.m. May 23 at Fairbanks Elementary School, 11140 Route 38, Milford Center. • 1-7 p.m. May 24 at the Church of Jesus Christ LDS — Marysville, 740 W.

In brief Winter snow removal cost Union County $450,000 While last winter’s heavy snows are becoming a distant memory, the Union County engineer’s office recently compiled a final tally of how much the county spent to fight the weather. Total expenses for dealing with ice and snow for the county were more than $450,000. Each plow driver is responsible for a zone that averages 40 to 55 miles in length, according to county engineer Jeff Stauch. The county has 17 primary routes, with each route taking up to three hours to complete a single round of plowing. Union County spent the following on snow and ice removal: • Snow removal hours: 5,548. • Snow removal costs: $233,771. • Tons of salt used: 1,204. • Total cost of salt: $71,206. • Total tons of half-and-half mix: 2,727. • Total cost of half-and-half mix: $94,535. • Gallons of diesel fuel used: 2,141. • Total cost of diesel fuel: $5,930. — Lin Rice

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 account. Add a bit of reality to financial conversations. If your teen is anxious to rent his first apartment and live off campus, 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 ERIC to give your children a basic understanding about the acCLARKE cess 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 614-744-5357 or Eric.Clarke@ 53.com.

Community brief Marysville inmates support Komen Race for the Cure While the Komen Columbus Race for the Cure filled the streets of Columbus on Saturday, several thousand dollars in donations poured into the fundraiser from Marysville from behind prison walls. The Ohio Reformatory for Women in Marysville held its first “shadow run” in conjunction with the Komen Columbus Race for the Cure on May 7, providing funds for local breast health screening, treatment, education and national research, according to fundraiser spokesperson Sarah Irvin Clark. More than 350 inmates participated during the week prior to the race, raising more than $5,400. “An event like this is proof that no matter what your place in life, you can make a difference,” said Katie Carter, executive director of Komen Columbus. “It is really touching that these inmates would want to spend their money to make a difference in the lives of others.” Founded in 1993, Komen Columbus has raised more than $17 million since its inception, with three-fourths of the funds going to a 30-county service area for breast cancer education, screening and treatment programs, while the other one-fourth goes to the Komen Foundation to fund national breast cancer research programs, according to Clark. More information on the foundation can be found at www.komencolumbus.org. — Lin Rice

DiBella’s: Our bread rises to the occasion

In brief

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 com-

pany’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.
