School board

November levy, more budget cuts possible By CHRIS BOURNEA ThisWeek Community Newspapers The Canal Winchester Board of Education will hold a special meeting May 23 to decide whether to place another levy before voters in November. During the board’s regular meeting on Monday, May 17, district officials discussed how to move forward in the aftermath of voter rejection of a levy on May 3. The board has scheduled a special meeting for May 23 at 7 p.m. to discuss

whether to place another levy on the ballot again in November. The May 3 levy failed by a margin of 50.71 to 49.29 percent, or 1,784 “no” votes and 1,734 “yes” votes, according to Franklin County Board of Elections official results. If it had passed, the levy would have cost $469 per $100,000 of home value and would not have increased the amount that voters already pay as a result of the two-year, $6.4-million emergency levy that was approved in May 2009. The 2009 levy expires at the end of

the year. Superintendent Kimberley MillerSmith said low voter turnout may have had contributed to the results. “We had a 25-percent turnout in Franklin County and a 15-percent turnout in Fairfield County,” she said. “In my opinion, that had something to do with it.” Board President Debra Waites said the board will analyze financial projections supplied by district treasurer Joyce Boyer at the May 23 meeting. Since the board only has until Aug. 5 to file doc-

uments with the Franklin County Board of Elections to place a levy on the November ballot, members will have to make a decision at the May 23 meeting or shortly after, Waites said. “We have to make a decision very quickly,” she said. Jodi Klimfoth, who represents the local teachers’ union, said Canal Winchester teachers are supportive of trying to pass the levy again in November and will do their best to continue to educate students with fewer resources. “We will think about how we can serve

our students with less,” Klimforth said. In the meantime, the district is moving forward with a $3.7-million budget reduction plan for the 2011-2012 school year, Miller-Smith said. The plan includes eliminating 49 jobs, including 27 teaching positions, and increasing the extracurricular activity fee from $140 to $300 for the next school year. District officials will also explore how to cut an additional $5.1 million from the budget for the 2012-13 school year, See LEVY, page A2

Auctioneer Tom Rawn collects bids for chairs in the old Canal Winchester High School, 100 Washington St., on Saturday, May 14. The Canal Winchester Local School District and city of Canal Winchester held a public auction. Bargain hunters found a variety of items, including kitchen and classroom items, chairs, tables and trash cans being sold by the school district. Items being put on the auction block by the city included a 1991 Chevrolet 2500 pickup, a zero-turn mower, an air compressor and a power washer.

Project in the works to paint trestle By MICHAEL J. MAURER ThisWeek Community Newspapers After the city’s Old Town Committee last week discussed the practicalities of painting the steel railroad trestle over West Waterloo Street, a resident of Canal Winchester has come forward to let city officials know that he has already received preliminary approval from the Indiana and Ohio Railroad to paint the bridge. Canal Winchester resident Joe Hanna said he has been working for several weeks, exchanging emails and phone calls with railroad officials and state health, environment and transportation officials to obtain all the necessary permissions. Council member Bobbie Mershon said she wanted to assure Hanna that the city is not overlooking his efforts

(Joe Hanna) has already contacted the railroad and gotten permission from the railroad to do the painting, and he is in the process of working out to get paint donated by Home Depot and getting volunteers to help him.

and she encouraged his work. “He has already contacted the railroad and gotten permission from the railroad to do the painting, and he is in the process of working out to get paint donated by Home Depot and getting volunteers to help him,” Mershon said. Hanna told Mershon that many of the regulatory requirements apply only to commercial painters and would

not apply to volunteer efforts. “He wants to be able to strip that paint off, and he has a friend in the village who is an amateur mural painter,” Mershon said. “He read the article about (the Old Town Committee) meeting and he was concerned he was being overlooked, and I assured him that was not the case. “I am very excited that a member of our community has taken this upon

himself to help the village in this manner,” she said. Canal Winchester Mayor Mike Ebert said the city could provide traffic control and other support for the project. Public works director Matt Peoples said the city would cooperate with the project, but details are still being worked out. “We’re not coordinating it,” Peoples said. “A resident is doing that. He is working with us to try and do it and he does have a work plan, but we have to get together on the details. “I know he is working hard to get volunteers and the donations of materials, to do his due diligence,” Peoples said. “Once he does that, we’ll take the next step of finding out where

Canal Winchester City Council agreed Monday, May 16, to increase water rates at the Canal Pointe Industrial Park. Under ordinary council procedures, ordinances require three separate readings before they become law. Usually, the readings are heard at separate meetings, but council has the ability to waive the requirement and make the law effective immediately, as it did for the ordinance affecting water rates at the industrial park. Council member Rick Deeds said the water rate increase would affect only commercial users at Canal Pointe. “We have water and sewer that we provide to our residents, and a long time ago, we created a water and sewer agreement with Pickerington that overlaps service areas,” Deeds said. “As part of that agreement, Pickerington services water at the industrial park and we provide sewer to some of their subdivisions. In this case, what they charge for water, mostly to businesses, we bill them, and it’s mostly pass-through. Pickerington raised their rates, and because of that increase, we had an increase.” The new rates will be $6.12 per 1,000 gallons of water, up from $5.65. The rates within Pickerington are slightly less, $6.02 per 1,000 gallons, up from $5.33 per 1,000 gallons. Finance director Nanisa Osborn said Canal Winchester reduced its carrying fee to 10 cents from 32 cents because officials were concerned that the rate increase was large. “We had great concern about passing through a large rate increase to our large users,” Osborn said. “It’s very real money to the hospital and medical office building and some of those companies that use a great deal of water.” In other business Monday, council heard the first reading of ordinances that would establish a separate category in the city zoning code for dog groomers and trainers, separate from kennel operators. “Right now, we have dog groomers and kennels in the same (zoning code) section,” zoning officer Andrew Dutton said. “This splits groomers and trainers from kennels. Kennels have to be more than 200 feet away from residences, but groomers and trainers can be within that distance.”

Service committee proposes new competitive bidding rules By MICHAEL J. MAURER ThisWeek Community Newspapers Canal Winchester City Council’s service committee approved new competitive bidding rules Monday night, May 16, following through on recommendations made by the charter review committee. Service committee member Rick Deeds said the existing rules are not cost-

effective, requiring too much administration for too small amounts. “We can control the competitive bid process instead of having the state control it,” Deeds said. “In the past, we have found we have had to go out for competitive bids on things that just really don’t fit well.” The primary change is that the new rules will raise the threshold for competitive bidding from $25,000 to $75,000.

Construction services manager Bill Sims said the changes would align state law, the city charter and the city code. “It provides some better tools to really suit our interests when it comes to contracting, and still protects the public interest as well,” Sims said. He said the higher threshold for requiring competitive bidding was consistent with what other home rule cities use. “It (especially) affects our large con-

struction contracts,” Sims said, noting that $75,000 “is the threshold used by other communities that have home rule. “It kind of makes sense,” he said. “It’s similar to the current prevailing wage thresholds. In construction, it’s kind of a breaking point, typically.” In other business, the service committee heard a report from urban forester Dick Miller that 30 trees remained from the tree giveaway. Miller said the re-

maining trees are magnolias and buckeye trees, and could be provided to anyone who is a village resident. He estimated the retail value of the trees at $20 each. “This is season 12 (of the tree giveaway),” Miller said. “Last year, we ran out in 20 minutes.

Project in the works to paint railroad trestle Continued from page A1 we fit into the picture.” Former mayor Mike Jones said the city should participate in the effort rather than leaving it all to residents. “He’s (Hanna) willing to do it and volunteer and do it all,” Jones said. “I don’t think that’s quite proper because I think the village ought to help and contribute.” Hanna said he has been communicating with railroad officials since April. “I have a construction background, 42 years with AT&T, where some of my responsibilities involved working on railroad right of way, hydrostatic plowing, directional boring, overhead aerial cable placing,” Hanna said.

He said EPA rules on lead paint have changed recently, so that contractors have extensive rules, but non-commercial work allows paint removal by moistening it and disposing of it in landfills. Hanna said he was concerned that existing lead paint be removed so it does not fragment into dust and get tracked over the community. “I think it’s dangerous,” he said. Hanna said the railroad has been cooperative from the start. “If anything, they have been overfriendly,” Hanna said. “And I can understand why. Not because I’m nice person; it’s because we’re volunteering to do the work.” Hanna estimated it would be at least a full week of work, including paint removal, base paint and mural work.




COUNCIL Continued from page A1 Council also approved mayoral appointments to the city’s tax incentive review councils, which are charged with ensuring that various tax incentives granted by the city are performing as promised. “The tax incentive review councils (TIRC) for Fairfield and

Franklin counties review the tax incentives that the village has granted to various businesses or residences,” Osborn said. “They meet once a year and go over the incentives to make sure the people who received them are complying with the requirements of the incentives.” William Sims and Roger White were appointed to the Fairfield

County TIRC, and Brent Foley and Bruce Jarvis were appointed to the Franklin County TIRC. Both councils will meet before June 30, Osborn said. “Since Canal Winchester exists in two counties, we have two sets of TIRCs,” she said. “They usually meet in the spring or early summer. They’ll be looking at the 2010 incentives.”

Fifth annual ‘Kids Festival’ scheduled for May 22 By NATE ELLIS This Week Community Newspapers

The fifth installment of an annual festival to provide free fun to local children will take place this weekend in Victory Park. Years ago, Pickerington resident Lenin Male hoped to keep local parents connected to events and activities that could benefit children, or just give them opportunities to be kids. The result was Male’s creation of, which contains events listings and information about community programs that provide learning and recreational opportunities for local children. Since then, Male also decided to establish a one-day celebration of Pickerington kids, as well as her brand, Pickerington Kids. This year will mark the fifth anniversary of the latter endeavor, when the “Pickerington Kids Festival” is held in Victory Park from noon to 4 p.m. on May 22. “We’re celebrating five years this year,” Male said. “It’s a continuation, and every year we try

to change things up to make it bigger and better than the year before.” Depending on Mother Nature, Male said, the festival typically attracts 2,500 to 4,000 people to the park. The live entertainment available this year on the park’s tennis courts will include bands, gymnastics, theater performances, cheerleading shows and dog obedience presentations. “About every 20 minutes, we will have a new activity coming on,” Male said.

Kids’games and activities will be spread throughout the park. A traditional favorite, an inflatable “bounce house,” also will return this year, with supervision from festival co-sponsors, the Pickerington Education Association and the Pickerington Parks and Recreation Department. “Every other year before this year, we’ve had to charge for the bounce houses, but the Pickerington Education Association is sponsoring it this year, so it will be free,” Male said. “The unique thing about this event is, everything is free.” The lone exception will be any food attendees wish to purchase from four vendors. “This is not any type of a money-maker for Pickerington Kids,” Male said. “Most years, I don’t even break even, but I just love the community and this is something I love to do.” She said attendees are welcome to bring their own chairs or blankets to the park. As is the case with all city parks, however, alcohol is prohibited.

As it were

Post-Revolutionary War land was cheap in Ohio Ohio did not exist when the Nelsons came into the place that later would become Columbus. In 1800, central Ohio was truly on the edge of the frontier that had been claimed finally by the victory of Gen. Anthony Wayne’s army at the Battle of Fallen Timbers in 1794. It was a long, difficult ED and nasty struggle. LENTZ In the years after the end of the French and Indian War in 1763, Great Britain had claimed by treaty rights most of the land north and west of the Ohio River. It was a rich land with deep forests, great prairies and rivers that ran clean, wide and deep. It was a land worth fighting for and many people did just that. Wanting to maintain the lucrative fur trade that had made a fortune for the French, the British government tried to keep its restless Atlantic colonists away from Ohio. It was a vain effort. The initial ventures of men called “long hunters” soon were followed by dozens and then hundreds of settlers seeking to find a new home in a new country. The American Indian residents of the Ohio Valley resisted the newcomers, and the result often was violent and deadly on both sides. Then came the American Revolution, and the Ohio country was the scene of even more death and destruction. At the end of the Revolution, the newly created United States found itself with an unpaid army and a lot of very large debts. And while the new country had little money, it had a lot of land. So the new country took the obvious course and paid its soldiers and creditors in land and then offered much of what remained for sale. It was the promise of that new and inexpensive land that drew people like David Nelson and his family to Ohio. Born in 1752, David Nelson was the oldest son of Robert and Martha Nelson of Anderson’s Ferry, Pa. When David was 3, the family moved to the frontier of Juniata County, Pa., and it was there that David came of age. After the outbreak of the American Revolution, he enlisted with several relatives in the “Eighth Company, Fourth Battalion of Associators and Militia of Cumberland County, Pennsylvania” on July 31, 1777. On May 14, 1778, he was commissioned a captain after serving through the long winter at Valley Forge. In March 1779, David returned to his home and soon married Margaret Logan, a widow with two young sons. In addition to raising the two boys, David and Margaret had seven children of their own. The Nelsons lived in central Pennsylvania until 1798, when they decided to move west to the new and inexpensive lands in Ohio. A grandchild later wrote a description of David Nelson in those years. “He was generous but stern, with a strict sense of duty and very strong in his prejudices. He was a very handsome man, above-medium height, a fine person, regular features, black curly hair, very dark brown,

almost black eyes.” His wife, Margaret, once was described as “the prettiest woman in the Lost Creek Valley” of Pennsylvania. “She had dark-brown hair, hazel eyes, regular features, fine complexion and was of a mild and kindly disposition.” Like many other people of their generation, the Nelsons came to believe that a better life awaited them in the new lands north and west of the Ohio River. They moved first to Chillicothe and lived there for a couple of years while David and his oldest son, Robert, looked for a new home in central Ohio. At length they found it along Alum Creek in what then was called the Refugee Tract. Set aside for people from Nova Scotia who had lost land because of their loyalty to the American Revolution, the tract began at the Scioto River and ran east between what is now Fifth Avenue and Refugee Road. After the claims of the refugees were settled, the balance of the tract was made available in open sale. Some of it along Alum Creek was acquired by David Nelson and his family. Arriving in central Ohio in 1800, the Nelsons first built a log house that would serve as the family home for the next two decades. Margaret Nelson wrote to her son by a former marriage in 1801: “Our new cabin is dry, and we have plenty of room, and no matter what the weather, the chimney does not smoke. My two ewes and three lambs had 10 pounds of clean, picked wool, which we are beginning to feel the need of. Last year, we had 50 yards of linen out of our hemp. We have lost two milch cows and one heifer. They are dead before we know they are sick. We have four milch cows and two heifers yet, without going in debt for them. The families along the creek have been tolerably healthy, except Mr. Turner. He had the fever and ague and Mr. Hamilton and some of the children, too. I have had my

health this season as well as ever I had.” In 1819, David Nelson built a large brick house along the road that later would bear his name. Strong in their religious faith, they were early supporters of the first Presbyterian Church founded in the area by the Rev. James Hoge. For many years, the family traveled along a mud path through the forest to the church, first in Franklinton and then in the new village of Columbus. The path later became Broad Street. A later letter from Margaret Nelson to her son described the importance of religion in their lives: “We have had an uncommon cold winter and a cold, wet spring. The fruit is nearly all killed, and the cornfields in many places will have to be planted over. There has been a revival of religion this winter, more than I have ever known, in Columbus, Chillicothe and different places. A number have been added to the church, both old and young. “The Presbyterian Meeting House was finished in the winter, when the roads were good for sleighing and the house was dedicated and the sacrament held the same week. There were four or five ministers in town, and one stayed six or eight weeks, visiting from house to house, having a sermon or prayer meeting at night and Bible classes.” The Nelsons lived in one of the first suburbs of the new capital city of Ohio for a number of years until the death of David Nelson in 1829. His wife, Margaret, died two years later in 1831. At the corner of Clifton Avenue and Nelson Road, a small sign remembers the Nelson mill and the frontier community that once was around it. And just up the road on the left — within sight of the sign -— still stands the redbrick house of the Nelsons of Nelson Road. Ed Lentz writes a history column for ThisWeek.

May is Melanoma/Skin Cancer Detection and Prevention Month

Free Skin Cancer Screenings during the month of May. Skin cancer will affect 1 in 5 Americans in their lifetime and one person dies of melanoma — the deadliest form of skin cancer — every hour.

By MICHAEL J. MAURER ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Last July, when he was 89 years old, James “Pee Wee” Martin celebrated the 65th anniversary of America’s victory in World War II with a reprise of his youth: He made a parachute jump. He wants to do it again this year. For most of the past 66 years since the war ended, Martin has lived on 50 acres near Dayton, in a house he and his wife built themselves. “I do all the things I used to do, just not as much,” Martin said. “We heat with wood and I split the wood. I have a backhoe and I mix concrete.” On June 3, Martin will join Johnstown resident Don Jakeway and Woodsfield resident Herman Zerger in a special trip to Normandy for this year’s D-Day celebration. Jake, Zerg and Pee Wee, as they are known, will be traveling with a cohort of more than a dozen friends and family, courtesy of a trip organized by New Albany resident Mark Easton, who traveled to Normandy last year with Zerg. Easton and Zerg are both friends of former senator Max Cleland, now secretary for battlefield monuments. “We have been invited by Max Cleland and President Obama to the Point du Hoc rededication,” Easton said, noting that the famous D-Day landmark has been undergoing repairs. “The last big event there was President Reagan did a big speech there in 1984, the 40th anniversary of D-Day.” Zerg and Easton and friends will start the trip May 28, retracing Zerg’s battles in Italy. On June 3, Jake and Pee Wee will fly into Charles De Gaulle Airport. Pee Wee has not been to Europe since 1964, when he and his wife were feted by the Dutch government Jake was in Europe last in 1991. This will be Zerg’s seventh trip. All the men remember clearly months of fighting, harrowing near misses, lost soldiers and severe wounds. “I was in a foxhole next to the (Monte) Cassino, and at that time that was the heaviest concentration of bombs dropped in the war up till that time, on the abbey,” Zerg said, remembering “And they dropped me in a foxhole. It was several hours. Wave after wave of bombers went over. I was deaf for a pretty long time.” He can remember battles where a thousand men died. He remembers entering Rome. “We entered Rome on June 5, the day before D-Day,” Zerg said. “I remember marching past the Coliseum and the general was standing up in the Jeep, and thousands of Italians were cheering us

Area WWII veterans return to Point du Hoc Continued from page A5 knew something was not right, I just had a bad feeling, and I look over and laying right there was the sniper pointing his Mauser rifle at me. All he had to do was pull the trigger and he could have killed me. I turned real slowly and he threw up his hands, and so did another one right beside him.” Not too long after, Jake remembers going to bed with his hands trembling with fright. The next day he was shot. “I got shot right through the chest,” Jake said. “When I came to the medic was taking my boots off. I had a .45 in my holster and I said, ‘What do you think you’re doing? If I can get this .45 out you’ll never wear them.’ He started crying.” In the ambulance, with some wounded German soldiers, Jake’s stretcher broke, so that he was wrapped in canvas. The ambulance drove off the road, rolling downhill into a stream. Everyone was killed except Jake. At their age—the youngest is Zerg, at 87—they are familiar with their friends dying. All are in good health. None considers himself wounded by the war; rather the opposite. “It is an honor and a privilege to be a part of history,” Pee Wee said. “I really feel sorry for people of my generation who did not get a chance to go, because it’s the greatest experience you’re going to have in your lifetime. It’s never going to happen like that again.”

Canal Winchester Roundup

Boys track team dominates MSL meet Hinkle hired as football coach

By AARON BLANKENSHIP ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Canal Winchester High School boys track and field coach Bruce Olson expected his team to win the MSL-Buckeye Division meet at home May 10 and 13 because the Indians were deeper and more experienced than their conference opponents. But after his squad scored 215 points to easily outdistance Hamilton Township (104), Fairfield Union (86), Circleville (77), Bloom-Carroll (65.5), Teays Valley (62), AmandaClearcreek (30.5) and Logan Elm (22), Olson said he never imagined the Indians would have captured their sixth league championship in seven years in such dominating fashion. “We basically have everyone back where the other teams lost a lot of their kids, so I knew we had a good chance to win this, but I’m very surprised by how many points we were able to score,” Olson said. “Last year, we finished second after winning five MSL meets in a row, so the kids had some revenge on their minds. We have a lot of guys who are very track-oriented and I think they were glad to be able to show what they’re capable of doing at home. This was a great performance by our team.” Jarrod Genther helped his team score 40 points by winning the 3,200 meters (10 minutes, 13.19 seconds), the 1,600 (4:39.94) and the 800 (2:00.5). Genther also anchored Canal Winchester’s 3,200 relay of Micah Cobb, Sean Neary and Aaron Robertson to a first-place finish (8:15.5). Antonio Whitfield won both the 100 (11.3) and the long jump (22 feet, 1 1/4 inches).

A new era is set to begin for the Canal Winchester High School football team. Shawn Hinkle was hired as coach on May 16. Hinkle replaces Phil Mauro, who resigned April 11 after leading the Indians to a 36-9 record, two MSL-Buckeye Division titles and four playoff appearances in four seasons. Canal Winchester athletics director Kent Riggs said Hinkle was the perfect choice to take over the position. Hinkle served as an assistant coach the previous seven seasons, including as assistant head coach and special teams coordinator last season. “Shawn’s been one of our assistants the last several years and he’s done a good job for us,” Riggs said. “We felt continuity is important with all of the success our football program has had in recent years, and he’s already an important part of the program and he’s ready to keep things moving in the right direction. He’s coached our j.v. teams on Saturdays for (seven) years, so he has good game-day experience as well.” Hinkle has taught since 2002 at Canal Winchester Middle School, where he currently teachBy Tim Norman/ThisWeek

Sports briefs North. A year ago, Canal Winchester placed third (78) in the district 1 meet behind Gahanna (132) and Dublin Coffman (97.5). “We picked the earliest district finals because our girls have prom that night, too,” Bender said. •The baseball team opened the Division II district tournament on May 10 by routing Linden-McKinley 37-0. Two days later, the Indians upset sixth-seeded Watterson 7-6 in the second round. Chaz Palmer went 2-for-4 with two RBI and Josh Miller, Tim Hawkins, Kevin Ilich and John Sharp each drove in one run. “Watterson has a big field, and that’s one of the reasons we chose to play here, because the way we hit the ball we tend to spray it all over the place,” coach Jay Bartos said. Trey Kiser pitched 6 2/3 innings with seven strikeouts to earn the win. “This was my best game of the season,” Kiser said. “I threw the ball across the plate and tried to make them hit it to our defense. My defense saved me a couple of times.” After Watterson scored two runs and had runners on first and third with two outs in the bottom of the seventh, Bartos pulled Kiser for Nick Zaluski, who induced a groundout to earn the save. The Indians improved to 1610 heading into a district semifinal against fourth-seeded DeSales on May 18. The winner plays third-seeded Hartley or eighth-seeded Big Walnut in a district final Friday, May 20, at Grove City. The district champion advances to a regional semifinal May 26 at Zanesville. Last year, third-seeded Canal Winchester was upset by fifthseeded Hartley 6-5 in a Division II district final. “The reason we were able to win (at Watterson) is because we made good defensive plays,” Kiser said. “The key to winning in the tournament is our defense, because we’re getting production out of everyone in our lineup and we have good enough bats to score a run per inning like we did against Watterson.” •The softball team opened the Division II district tournament by defeating Columbus East 19-0 on May 9. Lauren Arndt pitched a no-hitter and Andrea Peer hit a solo home run. After losing a regular-season game to Grove City 15-5 in five innings on May 10, the Indians beat Olentangy Orange 10-4 in the second round of the district tournament on May 11. Arndt held Orange to four hits and Peer hit a two-run homer. The Indians lost to secondseeded Lakewood, the defending Division II state champion, 6-5 in a district semifinal on May 16 at Pickerington North to finish 17-11 overall. Trailing Lakewood 6-1 after five innings, the Indians scored one run in the top of the sixth inning and three in the top of the seventh. Arndt pitched a complete game, allowing eight hits.

Donald Tucker won the 200 (23.38) and was second in the 100 (11.49). Corey Bell won the pole vault (14-6) and was second in the 200 (23.63). Other first-place finishers for Canal Winchester were Tyler Jenkins in the 110 hurdles (15.25), Jordan Dalton, Bell, Orlando Basanta and Jaquan Ransome in the 800 relay (1:33.18), Dalton, JaVaughn Morris, Fred Elious and Sam Decker in the 1,600 relay (3:30.7), Alex Pickens, Bell, Tucker and Ransome in the 400 relay (44.42) and Bryn Campbell in the discus (150-0). “We won 13 of the 17 events and we had two guys score in every event except one,” Olson said. “We had only three individuals compete in four events because of our depth. Jarrod Genther, Corey Bell and Donald Tucker did well in their four events and we won all four relays.” The Indians are competing in the Division I, district 1 meet, which began May 17 and continues Thursday, May 19, and Saturday, May 21, at Hilliard Bradley. The top four placers in each event advance to the regional on Wednesday, May 25, and May 27 at Pickerington North. Last year, Canal Winchester scored 33 points to tie Walnut Ridge for 10th in the Division I, district 3 meet behind champion Brookhaven (89). “We’ve improved enough that we’re hoping to finish in the top five of our district this year,” Olson said. •The girls track and field team scored 173 points to win the MSL-Buckeye meet for the fifth time in six seasons ahead of Circleville (125), Bloom-Carroll (84), Hamilton Township (72), Teays Valley (64), Logan Elm (50), Fairfield Union (50) and Amanda-Clearcreek (43). “For the first time, we qualified two girls into the finals of every running event,” coach John Bender said. “We scored in every event except the long jump. Hurdles were a problem for us last year, but we did well in the hurdles this year.” Freshman Joscelyn Powell scored 38 points for Canal Winchester. She won the 300 hurdles (37.02), 100 (12.85) and 100 hurdles (15.32), and finished second in the 200 (26.94). Kayla Scott won the 1,600 (5:21.4), anchored the 800 relay to a second-place finish (1:50.84) and placed third in the 800 (2:27.11). Scott, Haley Adams, Ali Stauffer and Kelly Henderson won the 3,200 relay (9:59.7). Also finishing first for the Indians were Stauffer in the 3,200 (12:16.03) and the 400 relay (52.44). “Joscelyn and Kayla had great performances in their four events, but we knew they would score well,” Bender said. “We just had more depth than the other teams.” The Indians are competing in the Division I, district 4 meet, which began May 18 and continues Thursday, May 19, and Saturday, May 21, at Hamilton Township. The top four placers in each event advance to the regional Wednesday, May 25, and May 27 at Pickerington

Watterson’s Diaz setting sights on third state title The magical high school tennis career of Watterson High School senior Chris Diaz is nearing its end. Diaz will compete in the Division II district tournament on Friday, May 20, and Saturday, May 21, at Columbus Academy, hoping to gain a berth in his fourth consecutive state tournament May 27-28 at Hilliard Davidson and to capture a third state championship. As a freshman, Diaz combined with his older brother, Philip, to win the Division I state doubles title. A year later, he and Philip finished as Division I state runners-up. With his brother moving on to college, Chris won the Division II state singles title last year top cap an undefeated season. This season, the Eagles standout also has been perfect as he heads into district play. Diaz said he is thoroughly en-

joying his final high school season. “ T h e r e ’s always some pressure on you when you are a defending state LARRY champion, LARSON but I believe I have taken the level of pressure I feel down a little over the years. After Philip and I won when I was a freshman, I really thought my sophomore year was stressful and I think I have matured as a player and am trying to just have fun with these last two years. “My strength on the court right now is my speed and anticipation. I have to overcome my lack of size by being more aggressive on the court. I think my offensive skills have im-

III, Region 12 opener in 2007, before losing to Lemon-Monroe 47-21. The Indians lost to Chillicothe 13-7 in the first round of the Division III, Region 12 playoffs in 2008 and lost to Logan 30-7 in the first round of the Division II, Region 7 playoffs in 2009. Canal Winchester also won the MSL-Buckeye title in 2007 and finished second in the league in 2008 and 2009. Mauro left Canal Winchester to become football coach at Trenton Edgewood in Butler County and dean of students at Edgewood’s freshman academy after he was informed that his teaching position would be eliminated if voters rejected a threeyear emergency levy on May 3. The levy failed by 50 votes, according to unofficial results. “I want to keep as many of the positive things going as I can, so we can build on the success we’ve had,” Hinkle said. “I believe we still have room for improvement. We want to continue going to the playoffs, and our goal is to go deeper in the playoffs, because the ultimate goal is to win a state championship.” Hinkle played four seasons of football, basketball and baseball at Crooksville in Perry County, graduating in 1987. After working in the health care industry for several years, he earned a teaching certificate from Ohio University in 2002 and began teaching in Canal Winchester that fall. Hinkle and his wife, Molly, have three daughters: Leigh, a 2010 Canal Winchester graduate; Jessica, a freshman at Canal Winchester; and Bethany, who is in fourth grade. “Coaching is something I always wanted to do, and I know from the experience of having three children in the district that this is a great school district and a good community,” Hinkle said.

es eighth-grade U.S. history. After coaching the Indians’ seventh-grade team in 2002 and Canal Winchester’s freshman team in 2003, Hinkle has coached several positions for varsity the past seven seasons, including defensive backs, defensive linemen, quarterbacks and running backs. “I’m excited about having this opportunity and I’m planning on making the transition as smooth as possible,” Hinkle said. “I’ve been a part of this community and this program for a long time, and I know that we have a lot of good young talent coming up the ranks and great support from our administration and community.” During Hinkle’s season as an assistant head coach last fall, he was heavily involved in designing the Indians’ spread offense, which set a program record by scoring 328 points. Last year, Canal Winchester won the MSL-Buckeye at 7-0 and went undefeated in the league for the first time since 1975. The Indians finished 92 after losing to Big Walnut 4420 in their Division II, Region 7 playoff opener. “Our program’s philosophy will stay intact and I plan to keep a lot of the same schemes in place, offensively,” Hinkle said. “Defensively, I’m looking to make some changes from the 3-4 and 4-3 defenses that we used mostly last year to more of a 3-5 scheme that’s a little more aggressive and more linebacker-oriented, based on the athletes we have.” Hinkle understands he’s filling big shoes. Before Mauro arrived in 2007, Canal Winchester hadn’t had a winning season since 2001 and had qualified for the playoffs only two other times, in 1986 and 1988. Canal Winchester earned the program’s only playoff win during Mauro’s tenure. The Indians beat Germantown Valley View 17-16 in their Division

proved throughout high school and that has helped make my confidence level grow as well. Now I have to use my experience, plan my game and execute that plan every match. I have to continue to focus on what I do best and hope that results in wins.” Diaz is proud of what he has accomplished at Watterson and to be able to represent his school. “It has been a great feeling to represent my high school in a positive way,” he said. “I have been fortunate to contribute to the Watterson community and

I am hoping to win the state singles championship again so I can leave my school on a good note. I am sure of one thing: I will continue playing as hard as I can and not let my nerves take over. It has been a wonderful four years.” Diaz’s time as a competitive tennis player won’t be ending at state. Next year, he will begin competing for Ohio State. “I am really excited to play for Ohio State and coach Ty Tucker,” he said. “I have always dreamed of playing and being part of the Ohio State athletic program. I know things will be

really challenging for me, and I know I will have to work very hard to be successful. I will be lucky to be under the tutelage of coach Tucker, who has the record of making each player he works with better, but for now it is all about doing the best I can in these upcoming days. “I love how competitive tennis can get. I love trying to use my strategy to win a match. I love the fact that tennis has always been part of my life and the sport has helped me become more confident as a person and it has taught me to have a good

work ethic in trying to balance my schoolwork with my tennis.” As the defending Division II state singles champion, Diaz will be the favorite at district. But he is sure to face challenges from Wellington senior Ian Wagner and Centennial junior Bogdan Cojocari, among others, in what should be a terrific two days of tennis at Academy. I’ll see you at a match. Larry Larson is a former athletics director at Grandview High School. He can be heard as “Mr. High School Sports” on WTVN 610 AM.

Bobcats, Evans learn life lesson, share league title Participation in sports is much more than kids burning off excess energy playing games. It’s a microcosm of life. Athletes not only learn how to hit a baseball or softball, how to make a bounce pass in the lane, how to execute a doubleleg takedown or how to condition and pace themselves during a two-mile run. They also acquire skills needed to work with others toward a common goal, to win or lose gracefully and to play by the rules. Sometimes, though, the interpretation of rules can interfere with the efforts put forth by competitors and, for lack of a better explanation, make little or no sense. Take, for example, an outstanding effort by Luke Evans, a freshman on the Grandview Heights High School boys track and field team. With the Bobcats and Liberty Union tied for the lead (123 points) before the final two events of the MSL-Cardinal Division meet May 13 at Berne Union, Evans and teammate Chase Gage finished second (10 minutes, 25.0 seconds) and third (10:27.59), respectively, in the 3,200 meters behind Austin McClean of West Jefferson (10:19.69). That gave the Bobcats a 137132 edge before the final event, the 1,600 relay. The lead was short lived because Evans was disqualified minutes after his race because of a uniform violation. He was wearing black tights that fell a few inches below the hem on his uniform. That was OK; regulation, if you will. The problem was found a couple of inches above the hem of his running shorts — a segment of half-inch gray stitch-

ing on one side of the black tights, an abnormality that would not have been seen without his running shorts hiking SCOTT up while he HENNEN was running. A distraught Evans walked across the football field inside the track, head looking upward and hands interlocked just above the back of his neck. After the disqualification, Grandview trailed 134-131. “It had nothing to do with the race, it had nothing to do with the kids. It was just a rule,” Grandview coach Brian Schoch said. “I know it’s a rule, so I guess they had to call it.” But not without discussion. Schoch and several other coaches debated with officials for several minutes, but to no avail. Evans was ticketed for the track equivalent of driving 68 mph in a 65-mph zone. Grandview’s 1,600 relay of Joe Trapp, Dylan Golding, Ben Mathes and Ryan Schofield then finished second (3:33.1) behind Licking Heights (3:32.54) and Liberty Union finished fourth (3:41.82), meaning the Bobcats and Liberty Union were co-champions with 139 points. “We had to put up with a lot, coming back from more than 20 points down, and Luke had to put up with a lot,” said Schoch, fighting back tears after an emotional 15 minutes to end the meet. “Thank goodness the (1,600 relay) came through and ran their best time ever. They knew what was on the line.” It was a good thing the 1,600

Sports briefs OHSAA approves division changes Several central Ohio high school football programs will be changing divisions for the 2011 and 2012 seasons, the Ohio High School Athletic Association announced on May 12. Moving up from Division II to Division I will be Dublin Jerome, Dublin Scioto, Hilliard Bradley, Olentangy, Olentangy Orange and St. Charles. Columbus West, Franklin Heights, Mount Vernon, Northland and Worthington Kilbourne will move down to Division II. Licking Heights is moving from Division III to Division II, and Centennial and Independence each will drop from Division II to Division III. Fairfield Union and Jonathan Alder will move up from Division IV to Division III. Moving up from Division V to Division IV are Ready and Northridge, while Madison Plains drops from Division IV to Division V. Africentric also drops, going from Division V to Division VI. Divisional breakdowns are determined by male enrollment figures in grades nine through 11 as provided by the Ohio Department of Education. The complete list of alignments are posted on No schools that remained in Division I changed regional assignments. There were 10 regional changes in Division II, five regional changes in

Division III, 17 regional changes in Division IV, 18 regional changes in Division V and 28 regional changes in Division VI.

relay realized what was on the line, because the meet officials seemed to have forgotten. The rule cited was similar to the one about wearing jewelry, which requires a warning before a disqualification. If the official didn’t notice the wardrobe malfunction until late in the race then he probably should have ignored it. I doubt Evans would have been disqualified for wearing a necklace. The situation reminds me of a league wrestling meet I covered several years ago. A heavyweight wrestler with a sub-.500 record was competing in a third-

place match with his team a couple of points out of first place. He pinned his opponent, so the points from the match and the points for placing third earned his team the league title by one-half point, but that was to change. After the referee raised the wrestler’s arm as the victor, he unsnapped his headgear, tossed it above his head in jubilation and raced to hug his coach in a moment he was sure to remember forever. It was a pivotal moment, but for another reason. During the embrace, the referee went to the

scorer’s table and took one team point away for excessive celebration, giving the wrestler’s team the runner-up trophy by one-half point. The jubilation quickly turned to disappointment. That decision stuck with me, as does this one. There is a time and a place for making calls, and these two instances probably were not the appropriate situations. But, as stated earlier, sports are filled with life lessons, and maybe this was an example of that. In this case, the fact is that life isn’t always fair. In the end, the Grandview

Tics in children are quite common Tics are sudden, involuntary, repetitive movements (motor tics) or sounds (vocal tics). The most common motor tics are frequent eye blinking, nose twitching and head shaking. Common vocal tics include humming, grunting or saying actual words. Some of these tics are complex and include large parts of the body (kicking, stamping). About 3 million to 6 million Americans experience tics regularly. Tics are more common in children, where one in four has a tic during the school years. Tics are five times more common in boys than in girls. Nine out of 10 children who have tics, however, will experience significant improvements in the symptoms by they time they reach adulthood. Tics are the most frequent symptom of Tourette syndrome, though it isn’t the only symptom. For a patient to be diagnosed as having TS, he or she has to have motor and vocal tics for at least one year. Impulsivity, attention deficit disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and obsessive-compulsive behaviors (repetitive thoughts and movements) are commonly seen in patients with TS. Cursing, which is the most publicized symptom of TS, is exceedingly rare. Stress sometimes can make tics more severe, frequent or longer in duration. Many children with tics report the urge to perform said tic, though some can suppress this for a short time. As tension builds, though, it eventually has to be released as a tic. If a child is concentrating

May 19, 2011

on controlling a tic, it might be difficult to focus on other tasks, such as schoolwork. Because tics are outside a child’s control, children should not be disciplined for exhibiting them. In most patients, the PEDRO symptoms of TS are mild WEISLEDER and not necessarily an indication of a more serious disorder. For that reason, physicians at Nationwide Children’s Hospital tend to avoid prescribing medications for the condition. Moderate to severe cases of TS can be treated with psychological therapy (habit-reversal therapy) or one of a series of prescription medications. It is important to know, however, that there is no single medication that is helpful to all individuals with tics or TS. For more information on tics and TS, as they relate to children, parents should consult their primary-care physician. Nationwide Children’s Hospital offers treatment for severe cases, and more information is available from the Tourette Syndrome Association of America. Visit
