Construction continues on Triangle By GARY BUDZAK ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Two phases of the Triangle Project are in progress to speed up its completion. “We’re doing two parts concurrently now because we can,” said transportation engineer Letty Schamp. “We’re actually into phase 3.2 which

is the second part of the roundabout at Main Street and Scioto Darby Road. We are finishing up phase 4.1 which is building the temporary pavement on Scioto Darby Road in front of Memorial Middle School. “One’s not dependent on the other,” she said, “and we’re trying to get as much stuff done around the schools during the summertime. That’s why 3

and 4 are running concurrently.” According to the city — and weather permitting — these changes should occur: Scioto Darby Road will be open to through traffic between Main Street and Cemetery Road. Beginning May 17, only right turns are permitted at the Main Street/Scioto Darby Road intersection (west side).

Scioto Darby Road will be closed between Main Street and High School Drive. Scioto Darby Road will be open east of High School Drive until June 3. After June 3, Scioto Darby Road will be open to local traffic only between High School Drive and Heywood Drive (in front of Scioto Darby Elementary School). Cemetery Road will be used as the detour.

Work along Scioto Darby Road near Memorial Middle School will commence. Two-way traffic through this area will be maintained. Main Street and all other roads will remain open to traffic. Access to local businesses will be maintained. See TRIANGLE PROJECT, page A5

MEMORIAL CEREMONY

Cope to seek re-election in November By GARY BUDZAK ThisWeek Community Newspapers

By Paul Vernon/ThisWeek

Members of the Hilliard Division of Police honor guard raise the U.S. flag on May 15 during the Peace Officers Memorial Ceremony at First Responders Park, at the corner of Main and Center streets. May 15 was designated National Peace Officers Memorial Day in 1962 by President John F. Kennedy.

Norwich Township trustee Mike Cope said he will seek a second term in the November election. “I believe that we have made some good progress with the township,” Cope said. “I think I can continue to positively contribute to the improvements that are going on in the township.” Cope, 56, has lived in Norwich Township since 1991. He Mike Cope is married and has three children who have graduated from Davidson. Prior to his election as a nonpartisan trustee in 2007, Cope was on Hilliard’s planning and zoning committee from 1995-2000. Starting in 2000, he served on Hilliard City Council for six years, and was twice elected. “Now I’m over here at the township,” Cope said. “It’s an opportunity to stay involved with the Hilliard community and expand on the knowledge base that I have. I really feel like with this township experience, I’ve got a varied understanding of the Hilliard community.” Cope has degrees in business administration and political science from Ohio University. He is currently assistant director of business and human reSee COPE TO SEEK, page A3

Bradley to graduate first class May 26 Darby ceremony May 25; Davidson ceremony May 27 By GARY BUDZAK ThisWeek Community Newspapers

While graduation day is special for all three Hilliard high schools, it will be Bradley’s first. “They’ve really been seniors for two years,” Bradley principal David Stewart said of the estimated 318 students who will be graduating at 7 p.m. on May 26. “We didn’t have seniors a year ago — we just opened up with grades 9, 10, and 11. So this particular group has been our senior class for two years.” Stewart said the senior class has been easy to work with, even though they spent two years at another high school before being sent to Bradley without a choice. “What’s been most fun about it is that this particular group of seniors — they

Bradley ceremony set for May 26; Darby May 25; Davidson May 27 Continued from page A1 appreciate it, they get it,” Stewart said. “They have taken that responsibility very seriously.” Bradley’s initial graduation will feature some elements that will be part of every subsequent ceremony, Stewart said. For example, the choir will sing a work specifically written for Bradley by noted choral composer Joseph Martin. High school graduation is a defining moment for a person, Stewart said, comparable to a wed-

ding or birth of a child, and he hopes next week’s ceremonies will be among those special memories. Darby will have the first graduation ceremony of the three schools at 7 p.m. on May 25. Principal Ryan McClure said the class of 2011 is estimated at 322, which is smaller than the usual 370 or so, “but it should make graduation go a little quicker.” Davidson’s graduation will take place at 7 p.m. on May 27, with an estimated class of 489 seniors. The one thing all three high

schools share is the same venue for their graduation ceremonies – the Schottenstein Center. The venue is also the site for graduations for the three Dublin high schools on May 28, Reynoldsburg on May 31 and Gahanna Lincoln on June 4. Schottenstein Center general manager Mike Gatto said there are advantages in holding graduations offsite instead of in the high school stadium, gymnasium or auditorium. There are no worries about weather, there’s no limit on how many guests that can be in-

vited, and the cost of renting the building is comparable to holding it onsite once setup, teardown and overtime are factored in. The Schottenstein Center likes hosting the hour- to 90-minutelong graduations because they come at a slower time of the year between spring sports and the summer concert tours. Gatto said. The night before Darby’s graduation there will be a rock concert, but the stage will be ready for commencement, Gatto said. “We produce about 120 events

a year,” Gatto said. “There’s no such thing as an easy event, but (graduations are) not as complex from a production standpoint. But it’s a pretty big life moment for the students, teachers and the par-

ents, so of course we want to make sure we’re putting on a good show. We really enjoy doing it, and the people from Hilliard have been great to work with. I think it’s been a great partnership.”

“He’s just as good as you’ll find out there and really a sharp kid,” Darby principal Ryan McClure said of Mescher. “Not only a great student, and follows his sister who was an outstanding student, but he was also really a solid cross country track kid for four years for us, and involved in a number of organizations, and just a really nice, likable kid, as well as just being really bright in class.” McClure said that Culley has scored 100 goals in lacrosse, a sport she will play at Grand Val-

A resolution on the city’s annual street repair program will move on to Hilliard City Council June 13 after street repairs and sewers were the subjects of a city planning, projects and services (CPPS) committee meeting on May 16. Hilliard’s department of public service conducted its annual inspection of streets and identified those needing repair and maintenance. Those streets are combined in one capital improvement project that was labeled Level One, which “must be implemented for the safety and well being of the city and its residents,” according to the legislation. Director of public service Clyde Seidle said repairs will in-

The city has budgeted $1,103,000 for the repairs. “We really have identified that we have over $1.5 million in needs going into next year,” Seidle said. “We know we aren’t going to do some of that, so some of those will get recycled into the 2012 budget and see what we can do. We got hit hard this year (by the weather.)” If approved by council, the repairs should be completed this year, Seidle said, although the paving season can be carried over into next spring. The work would be done by one general contractor who might subcontract out parts of the project. The CPPS committee also heard about the contract for the

Flowline LLC was awarded the contract for $129,096. In addition, URS Corp. will provide project oversight and testing for $5,000. The city has to submit a sewer system evaluation study to the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency, hence the sewer-cleaning program. The CPPS committee first heard the resolution on May 2. “It’s one of the things that we’ve been doing each year,” Seidle said earlier in the month. “This is our third year, part of a seven-year effort to try to get all of our sanitary sewers televised to make sure if we need to do spot repairs.” The resolution for sewer cleaning goes before council on May 23.

COPE TO SEEK RE-ELECTION Continued from page A1 sources for the Ohio Department of Transportation. This is his third stint with ODOT. “There’s a long practice of township trustees to also be ODOT employees at all levels,” Cope said. “I think that my background is very useful to the township. I’ve learned a lot from them, too, about the fire department and emergency services.” Cope said he has until August to collect 25 signatures to appear on the ballot and file with

the Franklin County Board of Elections. To date, he hasn’t heard of anyone running against him. “It wouldn’t surprise me,” Cope said. “That’s fine. That’s the democratic process, and if that is the case, then we can have a good discussion of who’s best qualified for the position. I’m very confident that my abilities will look good to our electorate.” The other two township trustees, Chuck Buck and Larry Earman, are not up for election this year.

Uttley thanks supporters To the editor: I would like to express my sincere thanks to all of my supporters for their efforts in the recent primary election for Hilliard City Council. Although the results were not in our favor, your hard work, dedication and encouragement to my campaign will always be remembered by myself and my family. Congratulations to Nathan Painter, Joe Erb and Albert Iosue. I am confident that they will work hard to keep Hilliard moving forward. I thank the voters and citizens of Hilliard for the opportunity to serve

the community over the past 17 years. Much has changed during that time, but I believe Hilliard has taken great strides forward to become the shining star of central Ohio. I plan to work hard for the citizens during the remainder of my term and to remain fully engaged in our city in the years to come. Thanks again for permitting me to serve the citizens of Hilliard and our "Pride Community.� J. William (Bill) Uttley Hilliard

Post-Revolutionary War land was cheap in Ohio His wife, Margaret, once was described as “the prettiest woman in the Lost Creek Valley� of Pennsylvania. ED “She had darkbrown hair, LENTZ 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. David Nelson and his family acquired some of the land. 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 red-brick house of the Nelsons of Nelson Road. Ed Lentz writes a history column for ThisWeek.

As it were

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 by the victory of Gen. Anthony Wayne’s army at the Battle of Fallen Timbers in 1794. It was a long, difficult and nasty struggle. 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 paid its soldiers and creditors in land and then offered what remained for sale. It was the promise of that 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 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, abovemedium height, a fine person, regular features, black curly hair, very dark brown, almost black eyes.�

Trustees OK Schirtzinger Road improvements By GARY BUDZAK ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Improvements to Schirtzinger Road will be made, the Norwich Township trustees unanimously voted at their May 16 meeting. The meeting room was packed with Schirtzinger Road residents who still had questions for the trustees prior to the vote. The residents’ main concern was with standing water in their yards. Greg Payne of the Franklin County Engineer’s Office said they will address the drainage issues, and will follow up after the road improvements have been made, as was done on Clime Road. Another resident was concerned about what he called the Schirtzinger Superspeedway, where motorists regularly drive 50-60 miles per hour at any given time. The trustees said the road will not be widened, and said they can ask the Hilliard Police Department for additional enforcement. Several residents volunteered to let the police use their property for the en-

forcement. There was a discussion about trees. Trustee Chuck Buck said he thought replacement trees should be planted in the fall, and there should be five or six varieties to be more disease-resistant and to avoid the now-prevalent seeds for maple trees. Residents also had praise for the detail that went into the engineer’s plans and that the long-discussed project was finally getting done. “That was a long time coming,” trustee Mike Cope said to the residents following the vote. “Thanks for your input.” He asked that they “continue to be our eyes and ears” as construction begins this summer. The trustees had tabled their vote two weeks ago so that residents could see the plans, which would include removing some trees that are in the right of way. The May 16 date was as late as the engineer’s office could wait in order to get the project done this year. “Even though we’re kind of under the gun, I did not feel that

was unreasonable,” Cope said prior to the vote. “That’s the way it should be.” Cope gave the Schirtzinger Road residents credit. “They did ensure that even fewer trees were impacted, but we’re positive that it will not have any kind of a negative impact on the road and drainage problems,” Cope said. “That’s a good compromise. The residents really complained and challenged us to do more. They challenged the engineer’s office, and they did it.” The trustees also approved an annexation agreement with the city of Columbus to conform the boundaries of their 2003 annexation of the Hayden’s Reserve development to exclude Norwich Township. The move reduces the real estate tax assessments for the property owners by about 13 percent, with no change in the level of fire or emergency medical services. The trustees said they would miss the revenues, but felt it would be wrong to double-tax the owners.

TRIANGLE PROJECT Continued from page A1 Schamp said the temporary pavement in front of Memorial is “not a closure or anything like that. It’s not like we’re going to be rerouting traffic. It’s just we’re kind of flipping people onto one side of the road so they can construct the other side of the road.” In the meantime, there has been a lot of traffic going into the roundabout from Cemetery Road and Main Street during the evening commute. “Basically it’s because Scioto Darby Road is closed, and most of the traffic from Scioto Darby has diverted up to Cemetery Road,” Schamp said. “That’s 8,000-10,000 more cars a day on that day than what it was before.” Traffic backing up into the roundabout is causing a heavy flow, making it hard for people in some directions to find gaps to move into the roundabout.

However, this should be a temporary problem, she said. “Once everything gets opened up, and people get used to what lane they need to be in, it’s going to work really well,” Schamp said. “It’s just right now when one road’s closed and everybody’s dumping onto the other one, it makes it a little rough during peak hours.” The Triangle Project is still on schedule for a mid-November completion date, Schamp said, because the contractor began

working in March before April’s heavy rains. “The big bulk of the work is going to happen this summer. There will still be some work going on when school starts in the fall, but I think we’ll see it wrapping up,” Schamp said. “I have no reason to believe that they’re not going to hit that deadline.” For more information and updates, visit www.hilliardohio.gov, and click on the Hilliard Triangle Project link.

Beacon Elementary boasts unique bottle cap map of U.S. By GARY BUDZAK ThisWeek Community Newspapers

A map of the United States made from bottle caps now greets students, staff and visitors at Beacon Elementary School. The 6.5-foot high by 11-foot wide mural of the 48 United States, with Alaska and Hawaii off to the side, is across from the school library by the front of Beacon. The bottle caps are affixed to plywood, with each state’s bottle cap having a distinct color – blue, clear, gold, green, orange, pink, red (the color of Ohio), silver, violet, white, yellow. A black bottle cap is placed where each capital is located. “Originally, it just started out that Principal Jane Leach really wanted some color on the walls,” art teacher Kelly Beroske said of the project. They opted to make it a project that all of Beacon’s 550 students in grades K5 could participate in and learn

about art and geography at the same time. For two months, Beacon students collected bottle caps to make the mural. “We sent fliers out to the local community. We had parents and grandparents and aunts and uncles and kids bringing in gallonsize Ziploc bags of bottle caps and got about 10,000,” Beroske said. Among those who helped collect the bottle caps was mechanical contractor Bruner Corporation, which like Beacon, is on Lacon Road. Bruner spokeswoman Renna Schafler said they asked their 325 employees to help collect bottle caps. “I couldn’t tell you how many (Bruner collected), but it was probably about 15 pounds,” Schafler said. “I’m glad that we could be a part of that even if it’s in just a little way.” The students washed the bottle caps, and sorted them by

color. There were a dozen colors, and they didn’t have to paint any of the bottle caps. A U.S. map was projected on plywood as it hung on the wall, and some of the taller students traced the outline of the borders and state boundaries, then painted the states different colors. The students then used electric screwdrivers to attach the bottle caps to the proper state. “There really haven’t been any adult hands on it except for hanging the plywood and putting the primer on the plywood,” Beroske said. The mural wass near completion, Leach said in a recent email. “It’s an amazing sense of school pride that this has brought,” Beroske said. “The students come in and every day there’s progress on it. It’s the talk of the school. It’s great how it’s brought together the community and all of the students we have.” gbudzak@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekNews.com

Davidson’s Blackstone advances By PAUL BATTERSON ThisWeek Community Newspapers

By Eric George/ThisWeek

Davidson’s Kevin Blackstone qualified for the Division I district tournament, which begins Friday, May 20, at Davidson, by placing fourth in the home sectional May 14. He lost to Worthington Kilbourne’s Brian Aguirre 6-4, 6-7, 7-5 in the third-place match.

Senior Kevin Blackstone of the Hilliard Davidson High School boys tennis team wasn’t just concerned about his opponents in the Division I sectional tournament on May 12 at Davidson. Diagnosed as a diabetic at age 5, he also was concerned about his blood sugar levels and closely monitored them throughout his matches. “On a hot day like today, I have to keep testing my blood sugar. I think I’ve tested it about 20 times today,” Blackstone said. “When my blood sugar is dropping, I don’t have enough energy to do anything. So I go into matches with my blood sugar a little higher than I am comfortable with.” Blackstone placed fourth in singles at the sectional, which concluded May 14. He lost to Dublin Jerome’s Frank Kuo 6-4, 6-1 in a semifinal and lost to Worthington Kilbourne’s Brian Aguirre 6-4, 6-7, 7-5 in the consolation final. Blackstone will represent the Hilliard school district at the district tournament Friday, May 20, and Saturday, May 21, at Davidson, as no other Wildcats advanced out of the sectional and no players for Hilliard Darby and Hilliard Bradley advanced out of the sectional at Darby. The top four finishers in singles and doubles at sectional advanced to district, and the top four finishers at district qualify for the state tournament, which will be held May 27-28 at Davidson. Wildcats coach Shawn Walton said Blackstone has not let diabetes slow him down. “We’ve had some moments (in the past) where his blood sugar

has gotten really low. It’s pretty scary to watch that,” Walton said. “As he matured, he’s been able to handle it better. Tennis means a lot to him and he’s always been able to manage it.” To advance to district, Blackstone said he had to find some consistency in his game. “Throughout this season, I was really inconsistent. Finally in this tournament, I was able to put together what I needed,” he said. “I was doing exactly what I wanted to do with the ball. All I have to do is play (at district) like I did today and I’ll be fine.” Also competing in singles at sectional for Davidson were junior Spencer Walter, who lost to Aguirre 7-5, 7-6 in the qualifying round, and sophomore Joe Justus, who lost to Kilbourne’s Jack Klein 6-0, 6-2 in the second round. In doubles, junior Pat Holland and sophomore Michael Porter lost to Kilbourne’s Sam Lazaroff and Roger Juang 6-3, 6-2 in the qualifying round. See TENNIS, page B3

Bradley again moves on to district semi By BRAD EMERINE ThisWeek Community Newspapers Every new season is greeted with optimism from athletes and coaches. That was definitely the case for the Hilliard Bradley High School softball team. Despite not having any seniors, the Jaguars finished 20-6 overall and captured the OCC-Capital Division championship in their first season a year ago. “You go into every season with optimism because you feel like you can do some things,” coach Kevin Moody said. “But this was a unique situation, being able to bring back every girl who wanted to return. “With the success we had last season when we had girls formerly from different schools, I think everyone just anticipated this being a very good season for us.” The Jaguars had lived up to their expectations entering a Division II district semifinal against Buckeye Val-

Commentary

Online coverage, updated daily at

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 double-leg 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 137-132 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 stitching on one side of the black tights, an abnormality that would not have been seen without his running shorts hiking up while he 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 relay realized what was on the line, because the meet SCOTT officials seemed to have forHENNEN gotten. 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 boys won their first league track and field championship since 1984, with the only consolation being that they had to be co-champions. What do you do next after such an occurrence? You line up, shake hands with your cochampions and try to beat them next time, whether in the postseason or in next year’s league meet. Just like in any other point in life, you pick yourself up and get back to work.

SOFTBALL The Jaguars beat Mifflin 12-0 in five innings in the second round on May 11 and closed league play by beating New Albany 12-0 in five innings on May 13 to finish second in the OCC-Capital Division at 11-3. Young pitched a no-hitter against Mifflin and the Jaguars scored 12 runs in the first inning before shutting down the offense and trying to exit the game without any injuries. Young also pitched a no-hitter in a 13-0 win over Franklin Heights on May 5. She was 6-1 with a 2.14 ERA in 52 1/3 innings. Roudabush was 12-2 with a 1.78 ERA in 90 innings. She also was leading the team in most offensive categories, as she was hitting .585 with 37 runs, 28 RBI, 10 doubles, four triples and five home runs from her leadoff position. Abi Groseclose was hitting .554 with 25 runs, 28 RBI, nine doubles, four triples and four home runs, and Jordan Camp was hitting .449 with 24 runs, 24 RBI, five doubles and four triples. Other key contributors were Caron Watkinson (.397, 18 runs, 21 RBI, seven doubles), Colleen O’Shea (15 runs) and Mikaela Smith (17 RBI). The district champion will play New Concord John Glenn or Richmond Edison in a regional semifinal Wednesday, May 25, at Pickerington Central. •Davidson finished its season on a high note May 14, sweeping a doubleheader against New Albany and Gahanna. Davidson lost to Newark 124 in the first round of the Division I district tournament May 10. “Newark got on a roll at the end of the season and they came in and hit the ball very well against us,” said Davidson coach Angelo Forte, whose team finished 12-13 overall. “We made a couple errors, but they (finished with 16 hits).” While it might not have been imperative for the Wildcats to finish strong, the doubleheader sweep certainly made them feel better. The Wildcats beat New Albany 10-0 and Gahanna 9-2. “We used the game against New Albany to play all of our underclassmen and we told them they were playing for roster spots and for playing time next season,” Forte said. “We had a lot of girls step up.” Sophomore Taylor Moore pitched a one-hitter. Freshman Lauren Strausbaugh had three hits and classmate Lizzy Doby doubled. All four seniors played against Gahanna, with Sam Smith pitching, Zoey Allegretti moving from center field to catcher, Tessa Kilgore playing second base and Mallory Sodders playing shortstop. “Tessa played a great game,

her best of the season at second base,” Forte said. “Mallory had a great year. She hit over .400 as our fourth hitter. All four of them had good years in a rollercoaster type of season and all four were very strong leaders.” Junior third baseman Kayla Wolfe, who homered against Gahanna, is expected to lead the team next season as a fourth-year starter. Moore and junior outfielder Allison Newton also are expected to be leaders. The Wildcats finished 7-7 in the OCC-Central Division, but final standings were unavailable as of May 16 because not all games had been completed. The all-league meeting will be Sunday, May 22. •Darby lost to Westerville South 7-1 in the first round of the Division I district tournament May 10 and finished 9-15 overall after beating Upper Arlington 7-4 on May 11 and falling to Bradley 12-3 on May 14. The Panthers started slow after a large turnover last season. Coach Erin McClincy knew it would be difficult to get her players into the right positions early, and the struggles showed as the Panthers won just three of their first 12 games. Poor spring weather often hurts teams that enter the season with many questions, as little outdoor practice delays lineup changes. Darby found some momentum by winning five of the next seven to near .500 at 8-11, but won just one of its final five.

“I think the turning point came when we settled into a lineup,” said McClincy, whose team was 4-9 in the OCC-Central before playing Westland on Thursday, May 19. “We began to get more comfortable on defense and that allowed us to play more aggressive rather than cautious, like we were early in the season when we averaged between five and six errors a game.” The Panthers will lose two seniors in second baseman LeeAnn Chumita and Mollie Obert, an infielder and designated player who missed time this season because of injury. Three pitchers are expected back to lead next season in juniors Carole Allen and Tara Woods and freshman Savannah Pizzurro. Allen missed time with a few injuries, including a season-ending broken foot that happened during practice. All three play other positions when not pitching. Juniors Angela Suttles (SS), Cheyenne Hamaker (C) and Brandi Yauger (RF) batted second through fourth in the order and should be back to lead the offense. Other starters expected back include juniors Tyler Kohli (CF) and Heather Scott (1B). Also contributing were juniors Amber Purdin and Ashley Rose, as well as sophomores Brittney Clarridge and Emma Green. bemerine@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com

None of the Panthers made it past their opening match. In singles, junior Talha Saif lost to Pickerington North’s Andrew Brady 6-2, 7-6, sophomore Sirhasha Ponna lost to Westland’s Stan Bilyk 6-3, 6-4 and freshman Siddartha Revur lost to Groveport’s Brian Rosfelder 7-6, 4-6, 6-4. All three losses were in the first round. In doubles, sophomore Kyle Chilcote and freshman C.J. Martin lost to Bradley’s Troy Fleischman and Daniel Smith 6-1, 76 in the first round and, after having a first-round bye, juniors Jason Pelfrey and Andy Kim lost to Hamilton Township’s Josh Byerly and John Homan 6-2, 6-2 in the second round. “We may have lost, but we definitely had the right mindset and played well,” Nickel said. “Given the fact that this team didn’t have any seniors, I feel like our guys were still able to step up and deliver.” “We’ve come far this year, but I know I have to get more used to playing in (high school) tournaments,” Chilcote said. The Panthers finished 4-9 overall and sixth (2-5, 27 points) in the OCC-Central Division, behind Upper Arlington (7-0, 82), Thomas Worthington (6-1, 60), Dublin Coffman (5-2, 59), Davidson (4-3, 41) and Kilbourne (34, 40), and ahead of Westland (16, 10) and Central Crossing (0-

Speakman had the team’s best finish in the league tournament on May 7, placing third at second singles. Bradley loses four seniors in Fleischman, Patel, Speakman and Van but expects to return Bowman, Kolenky and Smith. “The seniors added a lot of leadership,” Lilly said. “I knew they would work hard and compete.

Wildcats boys capture another OCC title By AARON BLANKENSHIP ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Hilliard Davidson High School boys track and field coach Jim Smith emphasized to his athletes that they would have to avoid making any major mistakes to give their team a chance to win the OCC-Central Division meet at home on May 12 and 14. The Wildcats responded to their coach’s challenge with a near-flawless performance in which they scored 170.5 points to win their second consecutive league championship ahead of Dublin Coffman (158.5), Thomas Worthington (129.5), Hilliard Darby (96.5), Upper Arlington (49), Central Crossing (20), Worthington Kilbourne (19) and Westland (13). “In practice all week we stressed consistency and we worked hard on our exchanges and technique,” Smith said. “We talked about keeping everything clean and that we couldn’t afford any big mistakes because a disqualification or dropped baton would have killed us. We knew we had to have everything fall into place to beat Coffman, and we were error free in this meet.” Jordan Weatherby sparked Davidson on the first day of competition by winning the shot put with a throw of 47 feet, 2 1/4 inches. “Jordan had a personal-best throw by almost two feet and won the shot put out of nowhere,” Smith said. “That was an outstanding performance because we were hoping he would just finish somewhere in the top four considering this is his first year throwing at the OCC meet.” Placing second for Davidson were Jack Kincade in the pole vault (12-6), Tyler Anthony in the discus (142-7), Phillipie Motley, Farah Abdi, Dametrius Clark and Kincade in the 1,600-meter relay (3 minutes, 25.57 seconds), Garrett Knapik in the 3,200 (9:56.6), Pre-

ston Lewis in both the 300 hurdles (40.14) and 110 hurdles (15.24), Damarcus Nelson, Derek Cox, Chris Harris and Motley in the 400 relay (43.12), Nelson, Cox, Kevin Rose and Harris in the 800 relay (1:30.92) and Motley in the 100 (11.12). “This was a total team effort,” Smith said. “Phillipie Motley, Jack Kincade and Preston Lewis had some big performances, and we outscored Coffman in the pole vault and in both hurdles. But everyone on the team stepped up and added to our depth. We scored two- or three-deep in almost every

event and everything fell into place for us to win this meet.” •The Davidson girls team scored 131 points to finish second behind Coffman (164.5) and ahead of Upper Arlington (100), Darby (88), Thomas (84.5), Kilbourne (55), Central Crossing (26) and Westland (10). The Wildcats, who won the OCCCentral the previous two seasons, received first-place finishes from Taylor Brown in the pole vault (11-0) and Rachel Trautman in the long jump (162 1/2). Finishing first for Darby were Aris

Sheetz in the 400 (58.85) and Brianna Rispress in the 300 hurdles (45.43). Darby coach Don Seymour said his team used the OCC-Central meet as a final tuneup for the Division I district 4 meet, which began May 18 and continues Thursday, May 19, and Saturday, May 21, at Hamilton Township. “We ran well overall, especially in the middle distance races, and there were no disappointments for us,” Seymour said. “We tried out some people in different events in the OCC to put together our best lineup for district. I’d like to think we’ll have a chance of competing for our district title.” •The Bradley boys team finished fourth (82) in the OCC-Capital meet, which was held May 12 and 14 at Davidson, behind Watkins Memorial (156), New Albany (155) and Big Walnut (103), and ahead of Olentangy Orange (60), Franklin Heights (41), Mount Vernon (36) and Delaware (27). The Jaguars finished fifth in the OCC-Capital a year ago. “We didn’t score as well in the mile, 800 or long jump as we hoped, but we scored well in the two-mile, 200, high jump and the 1,600 and 3,200 relays, and we did better than we did last year,” coach Jon Agriesti said. “Watkins Memorial and New Albany just beat up on the rest of us with their depth.” Terell Stanford, Matthew Bryant, Richie Gopel and Eric Bridgett won the 1,600 relay (3:25.46). Placing second for Bradley were Troy Kelleher, Ahmed Dualeh, Jacob Markusic and Austin Alpeter in the 3,200 relay (8:09.31), Blake Scipio, Bryant, Ross Hanson and Stanford in the 400 relay (43.61), Stanford in the 200 (22.86), Alpeter in the 3,200 (9:53.11) and Scipio in the high jump (6-2). “Our 3,200 relay broke our school record by 12 seconds,” Agriesti said. “Our 1,600 relay was a huge surprise.

Jaguars make it 2-for-2 in reaching district By SCOTT HENNEN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Hilliard Bradley High School baseball program has been in existence for only two years, but the Jaguars have reached a Division II district semifinal in each of those seasons. Bradley played top-seeded Olentangy in a semifinal May 17 at Darby, with the winner playing second-seeded Jonathan Alder or Bexley in a district final on Thursday, May 19, at Grove City. “The guys are pretty excited about reaching the district semifinal,” said coach Matt Gilkerson, whose team was 12-15 overall before playing Olentangy. “It’s always good to get into district.” “We made it to the (district) semifinal last year and we want to keep this going,” senior shortstop Luke Simeon said. “This will be my last year of baseball and I want make it last as long as possible.” A challenging regular-season schedule helped prepare Bradley for the postseason. Four of the other seven OCC-Capital Division teams reached a district semifinal — New Albany, Olentangy Orange and Watkins Memorial in Division I and Big Walnut in Division II. “We do face really good pitching all year long and we have played some pretty good teams,” Gilkerson said. “That shows because we still have five teams from our league in district semifinals. Playing in a strong league can only help you the deeper you get into the tournament.” Seeded ninth, the Jaguars had a first-round bye before beating Centennial 12-0 in five innings in the second round on May 12. Sophomore Jackson Everman tossed a no-hitter to

send his team to its district semifinal. “Jackson has pitched better games, but we played great defense behind him,” Gilkerson said. “He had eight walks all season and had four (against Centennial). But it was a good win and we moved on.” “We didn’t even know it was a no-hitter until the game was over,” Simeon said. “We played with a lot of intensity and we want to continue that.” The district champion advances to a regional semifinal May 26 at the University of Dayton. The regional final will be May 27 at the same venue. •Davidson lost to Dublin Jerome 2-0 on May 11 in the second round of the Division I district tournament to finish 1412 overall. The sixth-seeded Wildcats had a first-round bye. In the OCC-Central, Davidson tied for second with Worthington Kilbourne at 10-4, behind Dublin Coffman (13-1) and ahead of Darby (7-7), Thomas Worthington (7-7), Upper Arlington (6-8), Central

Crossing (1-12) and Westland (1-12). Central Crossing and Westland had a league game to make up. The Wildcats started 10-2, but won only four of their final 14 games. “I think some of the kids learned a lot and I thought we started to improve a little bit,” said coach Jim Dougherty, who completed his 30th season with the program. “We were playing better defensively at the end of the year and we had some kids playing where they needed to be.” The Wildcats had two seniors in Nolan Gill (INF/OF) and Andrew Gronski (SS/P). “I think the seniors did a great job,” Dougherty said. “Andrew’s contribution through the years and this year is tough to measure. He did everything for us. “Nolan was a great teammate, even early when his role was limited to being a pinch hitter and a role player. He also played all nine positions defensively when we played our final league game (a 6-0 win) against Upper Arlington (on May 12).” Gronski was named firstteam all-league, batting .481 with 25 runs, 15 RBI, 12 doubles and three triples. On the mound, he was 5-4 with two saves with a 2.21 ERA. Junior catcher Chase Delande (.395, 31 runs, 18 RBI, 11 doubles, 3 home runs) and junior outfielder Sean Neimeister (.387, 25 runs, 7 RBI, 5 doubles, 2 triples) were secondteam all-league. Other juniors expected to return include Sam Coles (INF/P), Ben Eckert (P), Bryce Lehwald (INF), Brian May (1B), P.J. Morgan (P), Jacob Reese (3B), Michael Scaglione (OF/INF/P), Zach Scarberry (C), Austin Smith (OF/P) and Michael Wilt (1B), who had four homers with

nine RBI and scored 16 runs. “Everyone but Andrew and Nolan should be back and I hope there is a sense of urgency or desire to compete,” Dougherty said. “We have some juniors and a good group of sophomores who will make it interesting when it comes to trying out for varsity next year.” •Darby finished 15-11 overall after losing to eighth-seeded Orange 7-0 on May 11 in the second round of the Division I district tournament. The 12th-seeded Panthers, who defeated Olentangy Liberty 7-5 in a first-round tournament game May 9, finished 7-7 in the OCC-Central, tying Thomas for fourth behind champion Coffman (13-1). “We had some disappointing

losses and some exciting wins,” said coach Chris Fugitt, who completed his 14th season leading the program. “But we showed tons of improvement from when practice started until when we finished, so that’s a good thing.” The Panthers had eight seniors in Chase Campbell (P/INF), Ryan Coverstone (OF), Joey Drakulich (SS), Michael Mann (1B/3B), Josh Schneider (OF), Anthony Tata (OF), Brad Taylor (C) and Zack Thompson (OF). “We have eight seniors with a lot of experience and that group of seniors did a good job and helped us get some good play from a bunch of young sophomores,” Fugitt said. Expected to return are jun-

iors Cory Carter (P/OF), Matt Chastain (P/INF/C) and Brad Herbert (P/INF) and sophomores Jake Chetock (3B), Tyler Elavsky (P/INF), Stephen Hernon (P/C), Connor Holdren (2B), Chase Longwell (INF/P) and Chris Ramsey (OF/P). “The good thing is we have a bunch of juniors and sophomores who got a lot of varsity experience, especially pitching,” Fugitt said. “We didn’t have a lot of innings returning this year, but the current group of juniors and sophomores got a lot of time on the mound. We feel we have a good core group of kids who played every inning of every game.” shennen@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com

Columbus Jazz Orchestra’s season-ending concerts May 20-21 at the Southern Theatre, are less a “stump the band” concept than a “greatest hits.” Oh, sure, the program was selected by fans, but will not include every suggestion taken through the CJO’s website. Communications director Scott Vezdos told The Beat they’d received suggestions for tunes by AC/DC, KISS and Jimmy Buffet, among many others. Think more Georgia on My Mind, Ain’t Misbehavin’, What a Wonderful World, A Night in Tunisia, When the Saints Go Marching In — and the like. Guest vocalist Maria Jacobs joins in the fun. Tickets are $49/$46/$41. Call (614) 294-5200.

never bargained for Lez Zeppelin, the all-female quartet that pays tribute to the famed rock n’ rollers without being a “tribute band.” Founder and guitarist Steph Paynes told The Beat Lez Zep started with a simple principle: “I set out to do this in a naïve way because I love this music and it became my fantasy to get to play it,” she recalled. “If a tribute band sets out to create the illusion that what you’re seeing is the real thing — that’s never what we wanted to do.” “I had gotten remastered Led Zeppelin records as a gift,” she explained. “I had always enjoyed them but never really dug that deep. It blew my mind in a new way — it sounded better than anything else. I was between gigs and, well, I’d had an all-girl band in the early ’90s, so I thought it would be more novel to try and play this music this way. Paynes admitted that at first, she hoped the novelty of the approach would garner the new band a couple of gigs. She soon discovered the endeavor would have one distinct disadvantage, coupled with one distinct advantage. “People had never seen women play like this,” she said, “and this music was always considered such a ‘male’ expression. Once we embarked on this, we knew we had to play in the right way and that because we were women, we had to do a superb job.” The best way to do that, she decided, was not to attempt to

Lez Zeppelin will play the Friday, May 20, pre-festival fifth anniversary Party at Rock on the Range at Crew Stadium. For ticket information, call 1-800-745-3000. The festival will be held at Crew Stadium Saturday and Sunday, May 21-22. For a full schedule and ticket information, visit www.rockontherange.com.

replicate the songs note-for-note, but to “bring the full Led Zeppelin live experience to people. They were four guys playing together intensely, but in the moment, with improvs and extended jams. That’s what we do.” She said there was no triedand-true method for finding the right bandmates; she auditioned plenty of great players who just weren’t right. Ultimately, she said, a combination of being good, being stylistically appropriate and being willing, in some combination, was the formula. (The current lineup — and players have come and gone in the years since Paynes first formed Lez Zep — includes bassist Megan Thomas, drummer Leesa Harrington-Squyres and singer Shannon Conley.) The advantage to her all-girl approach was unexpected. Led Zeppelin’s look — long hair, tight pants, billowy shirts and accent scarves and necklaces — worked pretty well for a bunch of girls. “Led Zeppelin was doing

male posturing dressed as women,” Paynes said. “There’s a certain alchemy of male and female energy that works for us. It really churns things up, to have that gender, that sexual dynamic.” Ultimately, Paynes said Lez Zeppelin adheres to its original “noble cause,” which is to just keep playing this music. She said their shows find everyone from teenagers who’ve recently discovered the original article to women (who many thought had no interest in Led Zep’s music) to older fans who “tell us they saw Led Zeppelin seven times or whatever and tell us ‘You’re doing it right.’ “That means we’re on the right track.” “Hey, hey mama/Said the way you move/ Gonna make you sweat/Gonna make you groove” — Led Zeppelin, Black Dog ■ For more from The Beat’s interview with Steph Paynes of Lez Zeppelin, read the BeatBlog at www.ThisWeekNews.com.

Fortune Chinese Restaurant offers lengthy menu “Hot Pepper Frog, Homestyle Made Frog, or Frog Stir-Fried with Pickle Chili?” asked my sister, flashing an oftpracticed devilish grin. We were plotting our order from the provocative, lengthy and new menu in Fortune Chinese Restaurant. Recently implemented by the place’s new owners, that voluminous food list includes many intriguing looking dishes which appear to substantiate the menu’s claim of “The Best Selection of Authentic Szechuan Style Food.” As we expressed hope that Fortune’s execution of Szechuan dishes would match its self-heralded “selection,” we also commented on how drastically the once-Cantonese-centric cuisine there had changed. Too bad we couldn’t say the same about Fortune’s drab decor. Because although Fortune has received a muchneeded housecleaning, sprucing up and coat of paint (albeit in a pale, wan yellow), it still has a dingy dropped ceiling, industrial carpet, goofy 3D-type

MENU by G.A. Benton “art” and dull brown, occasionally ripped Naugahyde booths. So how was the food? In general, I found it to be salty, saucy, aggressive and oily. Since that also describes me, we got along famously. In fact, slurping up Fortune’s inexpensive but explosively flavored grub was so much fun I didn’t much mind that the Tsingtao beer bottle on my table was the place’s best claim to ambience. As for ordering strategies, except for the chef’s specials, we took the menu’s implicit suggestion and stuck with any section mentioning Szechuan in its header (there are four). While there was some sameness to the seasoning among these brazen entrees — expect generous glugs of chili oil, fresh jalapeno, garlic and ginger

taste:  Fish with Rice Crust ($14): This massive (serves two or three) and mighty flavor onslaught was served with a little razzle-dazzle and is highly recommended. Thin and crispy rice cakes gave off an audible sizzle on the plate (think “snap crackle pop”) when doused with an enormous bowl of impressively tender battered whitefish planks and a cornucopia of veggies (starring Chinese broccoli) swimming in a sea of wild and thick, salty, sweet and spicy sauce.  Ma Po Bean Curd ($9): Silken tofu cubes swamped in chili oil and spiked with fermented black beans were liberally sprinkled with lip-tingling ground Szechuan peppercorns. Really fun and By Jodi Miller/ThisWeek almost druggy in its sting and oral Lamb with cumin and chili peppers at numbing effects.  Diced Chicken Stir Fried with Fortune Chinese Restaurant. Pickle Turnip ($8): I enjoyed this bold, and an occasionally to-the-brink sweet- cheap and comparatively ungreasy dish ness — I wouldn’t say any two dishes so much that it’s become my new gowere completely identical. Here’s a to to-go Chinese dinner. Diced poultry

coated in red chili paste was further seasoned with garlic, jalapeno and lively chunks of semi-funky and pleasantly sour veggie pickles. A hot and tangy must.  Lamb with Chili Pepper and Cumin ($8): The delightfully tender meat was flavorful enough to stand up to its soy sauce, onion and jalapeno-fueled spicy and salty treatment. Pretty terrific.  Hot Pepper Frog ($11): A rare sauce-free Fortune preparation, this was battered and fried bundles of froggy, tossed with leafy celery tops, jalapeno, scallion and a volatile arsenal of firecracker-like fried red chili peppers. I liked it, but there were a lot of tiny, hidden bones in those battered bites.  Mixed Vegetable Stir Fry ($8): Like a pleasantly bitter sauteed salad of slivered carrots and green veggies dressed in soy sauce and cooking oil, this functions well as a palate-refreshing side to the rich, spicy and more complex flavors of many dishes here.

Revamped Westerville pizzeria now offers baked pies In perfect conditions, customers have only a short wait for a freshly baked pie at Runaway Pasta & Pizza in Westerville. With his handy Hhc 2020 TurboChef oven, Peter Tanski can bake a pizza in 2.5 minutes. Put another way, that’s 150 seconds. “This is the next-generation way to cook a pizza,” he said. Certainly, longer lines mean a longer wait for patrons, but Tanski’s lovin’ his oven. It doesn’t require an expensive ventilation system and runs off of electricity. It uses a convection-and-impingement process, meaning it simul-

taneously sucks in and pushes out air, while a catalytic converter cleans the exhaust. The conveyor unit is capable of cooking 60 pizzas in one hour. Runaway takes over Tanksi’s former Mama Mimi’s franchise at 925 N. State St., just east of Meijer. Runaway’s fresh-tossed dough uses flour that is free of bromate, a conditioner that strengthens the dough and allows for higher rising. Tanski prefers

the old-fashioned method. He has three crusts: a regular style seasoned with oregano and garlic, plain wheat and a gluten-free product not made on premises. The reason being, he said, is the risk for cross-contamination. Pizzas are 12 or 16 inches and crusts are either thin or medium-thick. He has a full complement of designer pizza options, such as the barbecue pulled pork and spinach and artichoke dip, as well as a build-your-own section. The big sellers right now are the deluxe and Margherita options. He acknowledges prices are about $1 or $2 more than chain pizzas. The difference is in the ingredients, he said. For example, Tanski also uses Stanislaus tomato products, which are made from fresh tomatoes, not concentrate. He mixes the seasonings in-house for his own distinctive flavor. “It’s not something that’s going to be duplicated anywhere,” he said. In addition, he uses 100 percent cheese, a mozzarella-provolone blend, and locally made Ezzo Sausage Co. pepperoni. He prepares pizzas to By Chris Parker/ThisWeek order and begins the cooking process when customers As one pizza comes out of the oven, Peter Tanski works on another in his shop, Runarrive. Even during busier away Pasta & Pizza, 925 N. State St. in Westerville.

times, he sees that has an efficient method, as customers generally wait no longer than 10 minutes for their order. Still, purchasing another oven could be necessary once business improves, he said. The menu also includes a slate of salads, baked pasta, take-and-bake casseroles, chicken wings and a few desserts, including fresh-baked cookies. Sandwiches could be offered in the future, he said. “Doing things people are familiar with but in your own way is the way to succeed, I think,” he said. Tanski is looking into adding some seating in the 1,453-square-foot space, which does not provide a dine-in experience. Runaway is open lunch and dinner hours daily. For more information, call 614-523-3000. The latest Ohio-made vodka has a Columbus connection. Karl Schneider of Upper Arlington is among a group of investors behind Buckeye Vodka, which is produced in Dayton. The premium, small-batch vodka uses distilled water from a direct source — Crystal Water Co. — and is distilled 10 times for an unmistakably smooth, clean and pure flavor, spokeswoman Michele Mooney said. It is available at several local stores, including many local Giant Eagle and Kroger stores, High Street Beverage and Huffman’s Market.

Spirit of Safety Day scheduled for May 21 By GARY BUDZAK ThisWeek Community Newspapers

A closer look

The Hilliard Police and Norwich Township Fire departments are teaming up again to host their second “Spirit of Safety Day” from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 21, at the Safety Services Building, 5181 Northwest Parkway. The free event will feature station tours and demonstrations of auto extrication, rappelling, EMS skills and the effectiveness of fire sprinklers.

what it costs to run a fire department.. Youngsters can be involved in firefighting and 9-1-1 simulations, a safety house and a bicycle rodeo, and meet Brix the police dog. Last year’s inaugural Safety Day drew more than 2,500 people who learned about what their local police and fire departments do to protect them. “We had a very good day last year,” said Norwich Township Fire Chief David Long. “If we get good weather this year, it’ll be even better. If not, we’ve got plenty of stuff inside.” Long said opening up the facilities to

the public for hands-on activities is what made Safety Day a popular draw and a fast-paced day. In addition, Long said, things will be shifted so that people have will have more room to move around. “We had so much energy that came out of that event last year, because we had such a great day of involvement with our community,” said Hilliard Police Chief Doug Francis. Last year, the police department handed out a lot of brochures, Francis said. However, this year, there will be more hands-on activities and displays, he said. For the police department, Safety Day

Community briefs Deere dealership open on Lyman Drive

Spring planting event planned for May 22

A new John Deere dealership at 4079 Lyman Drive will have its grand opening this week, with events scheduled for Thursday through Saturday, May 1921. This is the seventh J.D. Equipment store in central Ohio. At 10 a.m. Thursday, Hilliard Mayor Don Schonhardt will be on hand for a ribbon-cutting ceremony with the owners of J.D. Equipment. Grand opening events from 8 a.m. - 7 p.m. on Friday and from 8 a.m. - 3 p.m. Saturday include ride and drive opportunities, chainsaw demonstrations, sales on products and $1 blade sharpening. Former Ohio State quarterback Craig Krenzel will make an appearance from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday. Store manager Mike Murphy said extensive renovations have been made to the former Schneider Truck facility.

The Northwest Franklin County Historical Society will hold its first spring planting event from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday, May 22, at the Historical Village in Weaver Park next to the Franklin County Fairgrounds. The event will feature demonstrations of how people farmed in the old days, with old equipment on display. Those attending will receive packets of seeds to start their own garden.

We had a beautiful day last year and I’m hoping the same for this year.”

Shooting victim’s family isn’t blaming officer By GARY BUDZAK ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The family of an Upper Arlington man who was shot after refusing to drop a knife he was wielding said they bear no ill will to the Hilliard police officer who shot him to death. William L. Lane, 25, of 4242 Lyon Drive, Upper Arlington, was pronounced dead in the area of 3800 Smiley Road in Norwich Township at about 6:40 p.m. on May 11. According to the Hilliard Division of Police, Lane drove an SUV off the left side of the road, striking a concrete pillar. Bystanders attempted to help Lane, but he pulled a large butcher knife from his vehicle, threatened the bystanders, and slashed his own throat with the knife. He started to walk away from the crash scene, and was confronted by the officer, who ordered him many times to drop the knife and place himself on the ground. “He was not compliant, and he turned and began approaching the officer,” Hilliard Police Chief Doug Francis said. “The officer continually told him to drop the knife and get on the ground.” Francis said the officer shot Lane once. He fell to the ground, then stood up and advanced on the officer who was still telling him to get on the ground and drop the knife, and

was shot again. “He stood back up a second time, continued to approach the officer, and then the officer was forced to fire a third time,” Francis said. The officer has been placed on administrative leave as required by Division policy. The Hilliard Division of Police and Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation are investigating the incident. “On the surface, it appears to be what we term suicide by cop,” Francis said. “It’s one of those unfortunate situations we find ourselves in. The last thing we want to do is take a human life, except as an officer, we have to protect our own life first. The officer was left with no other opportunity but to take Mr. Lane’s life.” Lane’s family issued a statement. “Our beloved son and brother Billy Lane would have turned 26 today (May 12),” the statement said. “We hold no ill feelings and extend our sympathy to the unfortunate officer forced to fire on Billy. We are convinced Billy achieved his desired outcome.” The family went on to say that William Lane was hospitalized and diagnosed with bipolar disorder last year. “Billy graduated from UA High School and studied aerospace engineering at Ohio State,” the statement said. “He was two classes short of graduating.”

essarily 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 www.tsa-usa.org.

tention deficit hyperactivity disorder and o b s e s s ive compulsive behaviors ( r e p e t i t ive thoughts and PEDRO movements) WEISLEDER 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 on controlling a tic, it might be difficult to focus on other tasks, such as schoolwork.

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, at-
