Board has yet to hire superintendent By CANDY BROOKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Worthington Board of Education hired two principals but no superintendent May 23. Angela Adrean will be the new Worthington Kilbourne High School princi-

pal, replacing Ed Dunaway, who is retiring. She currently is principal of Gahanna Middle School South. Nathan Kellenberger, currently assistant principal at McCord Middle School, will be the new Worthingway Middle School principal. No assistant principal at McCord has been named.

Adrean’s salary at Kilbourne will be $119,642 plus benefits. Kellenberger’s salary will be $94,483 plus benefits. Adrean began her career as an art teacher at Mansfield Senior High School, where Melissa Conrath, Worthington’s retiring superintendent, hired her. Adrean worked there for seven years.

She then was assistant principal at Hilliard Darby High School for five years and has been at Gahanna Middle School South for nine years. She said she was attracted to Worthington because of its reputation for excellence. “I was ready to get back in a high school

again,” Adrean said. Although the district has hired principals, no decision has been made yet on Conrath’s replacement. After two rounds of interviews, including lengthy meetings with staff and See HIRE, page A2

Parade, ceremonies to honor those who served By CANDY BROOKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Worthington again will honor those who served their country with a weekend full of solemn ceremonies and, of course, the grand Memorial Day parade. The parade will step off at 10 a.m. Monday, May 30, at the corner of East Granville Road and Morning Street. It will follow a course west to High Street and south on High, ending at Walnut Grove Cemetery. A memorial ceremony immediately will follow at the mound at Walnut Grove. The parade, with nearly 100 marching units, is said by some to be the largest Memorial Day parade in Ohio. Units include bands, military units,

floats, twirlers, cars and community groups. Former police chief Mike Mauger will be grand marshal. The American Legion LeasureBlackston Post 239 sponsors the parade and ceremonies. The service on the mound will feature the words of the Rev. Don Pendell, chaplain, and Col. Paul Craft, guest speaker. A 46-year Worthington resident, Pendell has served as chaplain many times. The retired Presbyterian minister was a volunteer U.S. Army chaplain in Japan in 1953. “Worthington has always been at the center of Memorial Day observances,” he said. “This is one of the

There’s no need to do a double take as the grand marshal rides by on Memorial Day. That really is Mike Mauger. Mauger is well known to Worthington residents as a 40-year veteran of the Worthington Division of Police. He retired in January after eight years as chief. What is less known is that Mauger was a Marine before he was a police officer. He enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps in 1968 and served a year in Vietnam in 1969.

A closer look

Synthetic turf will be installed at the Thomas Worthington High School stadium over the summer, thanks to a generous donation. Cards Inc., the TWHS athletics booster group, presented a check for $432,783 to the Worthington Board of Education on May 23 and will add to that donation as needed to pay for the new ground covering. The district will pay $102,000 toward the new surface. That is the amount set aside for reseeding of the playing field in the 2006 bond issue. A contract for $616,783 was awarded to The Motz Group of Cincinnati. Competitive bidding was waived in the awarding of the contract. Instead, the district “solicited several potential installers of synthetic turf,” according to the board’s agenda. Facilities director Tim Gehring told the board that forgoing the sealed bid process was “inconsistent with board policy but consistent with state law.” No board member questioned the move. Cards Inc. has been raising money for the project for many years. Synthetic turf is said to be safer than regular turf and will support sustained use, allowing more athletics and other events to be held in the stadium. According to TWHS athletics director Dan Girard, the surface will allow the school to host regional tournaments and contests,

thus generating revenue for the district. Also on May 23, three Worthington Kilbourne High School students asked the board to reconsider a decision to no longer offer upper-level French classes at the school. Because of low enrollment, the upper-level courses will be offered at Thomas Worthington only, with busing to Thomas from Kilbourne available for upperlevel French students. Likewise, upper-level Latin classes will be offered only at Kilbourne, with busing available for Thomas Latin students. Students Matthew Cooperman, Jami Brunner and Rosalyn Chen told the board how valuable the upper-level French courses have been. Cooperman said the courses no longer would be a true option at Kilbourne because of scheduling conflicts. The board also voted 3-2 to not join the National School Boards Association (NSBA), contrary to a recommendation by board member David Bressman. The organization would proSee BOARD, page A2

Chamber names Lordo small-business person of year By CANDY BROOKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

A dentist known for his big heart has been named small-business person of the year by the Worthington Area Chamber of Commerce. Anthony Lordo, D.D.S., has been in business in Worthington for five years. By Worthington standards, he still is a newcomer, but his generous spirit, his principle-based business, his volunteerism and continuing acts of charity have made him known throughout the community.

“He has a heart that has no boundaries,” chamber director Kathryn Paugh said in presenting the Tony Lordo award during a May 24 luncheon at the Worthington Inn. Local businessman Dan Lacey said he has known Lordo for many years and constantly is impressed with all that he does as a professional, volunteer and family man.

“He must have 36 hours in his day,” Lacey said. Lordo moved his practice to Worthington in 2006, when he purchased the dental office of Chuck Schindler, D.D.S. More recently, he purchased the office of James Pardi. They will merge their practices at 1000 High St. on June 13. He also has a practice in Mansfield and is a part-time faculty member at the Ohio State College of Dentistry Nisonger Dental Center, treating patients with multiple handicaps and developmental challenges.

He has been active in the chamber since 2006. He has sponsored events, advised young professionals, participated in health fairs, donated door prizes and volunteered at Taste of Worthington and Market Day. He was elected to the chamber’s board of trustees in 2009. Lordo graduated from Leadership Worthington in 2008 and currently serves on the board, helping recruit new class members. He also has raised money for muscular-dystrophy groups, sponsored Little League teams and

given his time, energy and money to causes and organizations too numerous to list. He and his wife, Kimberly, also started a home renovation and rental business in the campus area, and they renovated the Clintonville home where they live with 4-year-old daughter, Lucia. Lordo said he was humbled to be named small-business person, giving credit to his office staff members, who turned out in force to support their boss on Tuesday. “With a team like that, it is easy to look good,” he said. He encouraged other small-

business owners to come up with a core-value statement, which could be referred to daily in deciding how to treat people and how to face challenges. “We help people smile” is his value statement. Those words hang on a plaque in his office and guide him and his staff daily, he said. Lordo is the 25th annual recipient of the award, which recognizes those who are succeeding, have shown growth and are involved in the betterment of the Worthington community.

Kilbourne’s Hitchcock wins PARADE prestigious Marr jazz award The Jazz Arts Group of Columbus has named Dan Hitchcock, a junior at Worthington Kilbourne High School, the winner of the ninth annual Hank Marr High School Jazz Award. A tenor saxophone player, Hitchcock was selected from three finalists, including Dylan Bram, a vibraphonist at Dublin Jerome High School, and William England, an alto saxophone player from Grove City High School. Finalists were selected from an initial pool of entrants via submitted recordings. Judges were professional musicians Pete Mills, Tom Carroll and Jim Rupp. “The playing levels of the participants seem to get better and better every year,” Carroll said. “When I found out who the other finalists were, I knew there was a strong possibility that I

wouldn’t win,” Hitchcock told ThisWeek. “I kept practicing furiously. I was amazed when I found out I was the winner.” Hitchcock said Mark Donavan, head of the Columbus Youth Jazz Workshop, initially encouraged him to enter a few years ago. He said when his friend, Chase Potter, won the competition in 2009, “I made it a personal goal to try and win the competition.” Hitchcock started on the piano in kindergarten and the saxophone in sixth grade. He has played with the Columbus Youth Jazz Workshop and the Columbus Youth Jazz Orchestra, in addition to his school’s wind ensemble, marching band, jazz band and pit orchestra. He credited a number of past music teachers, including Jay Miglia, Donavan, Todd Stoll, Greg Taylor and Don Nathan, as well as his parents for their encouragement. He said he has modeled

vide background on national and international education issues that should be discussed by the board, Bressman said. “I don’t think we’re the board we should be,” he said. He also said he did not expect the board to approve, as joining would cost $3,738. Only board member Charlie Wilson voted with Bressman. The board pays for professional development for staff and should do the same for the school board, he said. Veteran board member Jennifer Best said the board once belonged to the NSBA and sent a representative to its annual meeting. She recalled that the membership was not worth the cost. Julie Keegan and Marc Schare said they also could not justify the cost. Schare agreed that the level of discussion on the board needs to be improved, and more work sessions should be held. Joining the NSBA would not achieve that goal, he said.

his playing after the “laidback tenor style” of players like Lester Young, Dexter Gordon, Stan Getz, Gerry Mulligan and others. “I know I can make a fool of myself by trying to play lots of notes, so I just try to play the good ones,” he said. Hitchcock said he hopes to continue his study of jazz saxophone in college. As winner of the Hank Marr Award, Hitchcock received a $500 cash award and will perform as a featured guest artist with the Columbus Jazz Orchestra during its July 22 JazZoo concert. Hank Marr was both an elite jazz organ player and prominent educator. The Jazz Arts Group established the award in Marr’s name to honor his 50-plus years as a performer, teacher, arranger and conductor.

largest parades and memorial services in the state, and I’ve been privileged to serve as chaplain.” Craft is deputy commander for the 174th Air Defense Artillery Brigade of the Ohio National Guard. He enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves in 1983 and was commissioned into the U.S. Army in 1986. He lives in Columbus and is superintendent of Delaware City Schools. Everyone is encouraged to attend the service at Walnut Grove at the end of the parade. Observances actually will begin Sunday, May 29, when 1,300 handmade poppies will be placed on the graves of veterans at local cemeteries. The poppies were made by members of the ladies auxiliary of the American Legion post. On Memorial Day morning, members of the post will begin services at 6 a.m. on the Village Green. The flag will be lowered to half-staff and “Taps” will be played. The ceremony will be repeated at St. John, Flint, Resurrection, and Kingwood cemeteries.

First as a rifleman and then a platoon radioman, he saw action and earned a Bronze Star and a Purple Heart, serving with Charlie Company, 1st Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division. His combat base, An Hoa, was in the Quang Nam province, about 20 miles southwest of and along the route to DaNang. Skirmishes were mostly small but regular, yet he was wounded in a big battle in late 1969. While conducting patrols in the area of Liberty Bridge, LeBac 5, his platoon was ambushed. A fellow soldier stepped on an IED, burning his foot and eye badly. Cpl. Mauger assisted in directing supporting arms to defend the platoon and in directing a medical-evacuation chopper in for the Marine, who succumbed to his wounds. Mauger wanted to stay and fight, describing his injury as a “flesh wound,” but was forced to board the chopper and spend

Board members said they are reviewing applications carefully, checking references and considering input from community meetings.

10 days aboard a medical ship. Seeing those who were wounded and dying was a sight he will never forget, and watching the medics work was impressive, he said. Mauger returned to duty and then was shipped back to the United States in February 1970. Eight months later, he joined the Worthington Division of Police. Asked how often he thinks of his year in Vietnam, Mauger answers without hesitation. “Every day,” he said. The experience taught him about people, leadership and commitment and instilled in him an appreciation of everyday life. “After you see people die, you realize that the days you think are bad days aren’t bad at all,” Mauger said. He also remains proud to be a Marine and to have been chosen to lead the parade on Memorial Day. “Being grand marshal is a nice award,” he said. “It’s not just me; everybody who has been in the service is a grand marshal that day.”

Blue Star Mothers form bond while children serve overseas By JAYME DETWEILER ThisWeek Community Newspapers

For some mothers, the somber meaning behind Memorial Day can be sobering. The thought of a brave son or daughter serving overseas, in hostile territory, can worry a mother sick, with fear that her child is alone and in harm’s way. When those thoughts become overwhelming, help is available from the Columbus chapter of the Blue Star Mothers of America. The Blue Star Mothers group is a nonpartisan, nonpolitical service organization comprising mothers who have or have had children serving in the U.S. military. The organization also promotes public awareness of military support efforts through fundraising and community events. The more than 50 women in the local group provide support to each other and to active-duty military personnel. Associate members could be fathers, aunts, uncles and other family members. In the past three years, the Columbus chapter has sent almost 4,000 packages overseas, according to Trina Dunlap, second vice president of the Ohio organization and 2008-10 president of the Columbus chapter. She also co-founded the chapter in 2007. “There are so many over there that do not have anybody sending them anything from home, and they’re over there alone,” she said. “Those are the ones we tar-

get.” The intent of the packages is to say, “Thank you for what you are doing.” Dunlap said she would send 10 packages to her son, Michael Dunlap, a U.S. Army officer with the C-52 infantry company who was stationed in Iraq for 15 months. He arrived home safely in fall 2010. He would give nine away to soldiers whom he knew hadn’t received anything, she said. The Blue Star Mothers will participate in the Memorial Day parade in Worthington on May 30, holding a Blue Star Mothers banner and pictures of their family members who are in the military. “It’s not just another day or a cookout,” Dunlap said of Memorial Day, adding that now that her son has fought overseas, she feels the pain of what the veterans went through in past wars. “It means a lot to us.” The women of the group also support each other, Dunlap said. “Moms walk in with a tissue and a picture and say, ‘My kid just left for basic,’ and we tell them it’s going to be OK,” she said. Blue Star Mothers post flags in their windows, with one white star representing each solider in their family. Some women of the Columbus chapter have flags with

as many as four stars. As president, Dunlap would present a gold star to a family who has lost a loved one. “It was a heart-wrenching thing to do,” she said. The overall mission of this group is to be patriotic, educational, social and service-oriented and to maintain true allegiance to the government of the United States, Dunlap said. Dunlap, a supervisor in American Signature’s home-office lossprevention department, was honored by the company during its annual leadership conference awards dinner in August. Dunlap received the 2010 Jerome Schottenstein Humanitarian Award in recognition of her public-service efforts. Established in 1997, the Schottenstein award recognizes an American Signature (Value City Furniture’s parent company) employee who has demonstrated extraordinary volunteer efforts by giving back to the community. Dunlap is only the fifth recipient of the award. Her son presented it to her as a surprise guest. The Blue Star Mothers group meets monthly in Worthington; members find a way to educate the public about what really is involved when Americans are fighting overseas. When asked what the Blue Star Mothers meant to her, Dunlap said she finds it difficult to explain it in words, but offered this: “When you see the flag fly, it’s quite different when you have family in the service.”

Increase in plane flights from OSU airport cited To the editor: I am frequently asked, “What is happening with OSU Airport’s Part 150 study?” I phoned the Federal Aviation Administration in April to ask. The FAA indicated its review of the study has not begun. They said information provided by OSU and its consultants was incomplete; data used for the noise compatibility study was too old; submitted public comments/questions were unorganized; and there was no record that the public’s questions were answered. The FAA also listed a 46 percent decrease in operations (take-offs or landings) from the Terminal Area Forecast used in the study. They said $851,739 has been spent, and they will not pay for corrections. Doug Hammon, airport manager, has yet to update the public or Advisory Committee members who, with the airport, worked years on this study. This week and last, OSU Airport hosted SAFECON, a national collegiate flying competition. Airplanes have been here practicing landing at the airport from 8-6 daily. OSU Airport last hosted the na-

tional competition at the airport in 2006; it significantly increased operations by 15,000. The SAFECON Daily ( reported, “1,2002,000 operations with maximum traffic peaking at approximately 200 operations per hour.” Those numbers put aircraft over homes every 20-30 seconds. We fully support the educational mission of the OSU Airport; however, the noise impact of SAFECON on the residential communities surrounding the airport is great. The noise impact of SAFECON 2006 was discussed by the Airport Advisory Committee and resulted in changes for the 2007 event which OSU again hosted with aircraft based at OSU and the flying portion of the competition held at Rickenbacker with grounds large enough to contain the practice, the competition and the noise. We wish the student pilots safe landings and request OSU Airport, as a good neighbor, permit other institutions the opportunity to host the event in the future.

As it were

Memorial Day 1911: parades, services, decoration of graves It was a rainy Sunday in Columbus on the weekend before Memorial Day in 1911. But that did not stop a lot of people from “making an excursion” to the city. According to a local newspaper of the time, more than 5,000 people arrived in the city by train and interurban railway from places as distant as Cleveland, Cincinnati and Parkersburg, W. Va. They came to see the sites, visit local amusement parks and shop in the stores of the capital city. Among the popular sites were the Statehouse, the campus of Ohio State University and the institutions for the blind, the deaf, the mentally ill and the criminally penitent. This was, after all, the weekend before Memorial Day and one might assume that people were simply celebrating a long threeday weekend. But that is not what they were doing at all. In 1911, Memorial Day was celebrated on May 30 — no matter what day of the week it might happen to be. In 1911, it happened to be Tuesday, so most of these people seeking, as one reporter put it, “spots where cooling breezes ought to blow” or “places where inspiring liquors ought to flow” had a nice day in the capital city, boarded their trains and left central Ohio for a working day on Monday in their hometowns. While most people in Columbus went about their business on Monday, May 29, several dozen others were working furiously to prepare for the holiday that was only one day away. And there was a lot of work to do. Local veterans and civic organizations combined with social service organizations to plan and prepare a full day of activities for Memorial Day. It was begun as a day to remember the men who died serving their country in the Civil War, but it had become increasingly a time to remember veterans of all of America’s wars and a Decoration Day for family plots in America’s cemeteries, as well. While there were parades to plan and religious services to prepare, most of the real work of Memorial Day involved flowers — lots and lots of flowers. In 1911, the organizers of Memorial Day planned to put an American flag and a bouquet of flowers on the grave of every veteran in the city. The school children of Columbus were asked to bring bouquets of flowers to the Franklin County Memorial Hall on Monday, May

29. The public was also asked to bring flowers. There was no reason to worry. By Tuesday mornED ing, there were more than LENTZ enough flowers to accompany the 2,500 American flags to be placed in the cemeteries: “Carnations, roses, peonies and syringa blossoms were the most numerous in the collection.” At 7:30 a.m. on the morning of Memorial Day, veterans groups met at Memorial Hall in uniform, marched a few blocks to Statehouse Square and boarded streetcars to ride to Green Lawn and Mount Calvary cemeteries. They were soon followed by hundreds of people who joined them at the cemeteries for services. At 9 a.m., flowers were placed at the McKinley Memorial in front of the Statehouse and at 11 a.m., a 46-gun artillery salute was fired in the Statehouse yard by local soldiers from the Columbus Barracks (now Fort Hayes). At 1 p.m., local veterans groups, military organizations, marching bands and most of the Columbus Police Department formed up for a march through downtown. Returning to Memorial Hall, many of the marchers stayed to listen to a program of music and patriotic speeches. Religious services also were held in a number of local churches through the day. Many people did not stay downtown for all of these events. Some

had left town early in the day, since most businesses, schools and offices were closed and the excursion cars to Buckeye Lake, Griggs Dam and local amusement parks were running early and often. And then there were some people who were not free to attend these events. As one paper put it, “Because it is Memorial Day, and in appreciation of things they have done and may do for their country, prisoners at the Workhouse who are Civil War or SpanishAmerican War veterans, or members of the regular army or national guard, at noon today will be served with a special dinner. “Although the services for the Civil and Spanish war veterans at the Penitentiary Sunday were attended by 98 former soldiers, but three of them served in the Civil War and 95 during the SpanishAmerican War … The number of Civil War veterans has greatly decreased during the past 10 years, by deaths and pardons. The 98 men have organized Walled City Camp and hold meetings just as the old soldiers do at Memorial Hall.” Other people attended all or part of the downtown observances and then departed for family gatherings in local parks or on the front porches of their homes. In the evening, the residents of many Columbus neighborhoods gathered for a fireworks celebration and further festivities. All in all, it was a pleasant day for the unofficial beginning of the summer of 1911 in Columbus. Ed Lentz writes a history column for ThisWeek.

Decanted group invites ‘wine’ing If you believe that wine and books go together like summer and ice cream, then don’t miss Worthington Libraries’ newest book discussion group, hosted by downtown Worthington’s wellstocked wine shop. Decanted meets monthly at 7 p.m. at House Wine, 644 N. High St. Have a merlot when you go, and enjoy this summer’s flight of wine-related titles like “A Good Year” by Peter Mayle on June 7, “The Billionaire’s Vinegar” by Benjamin Wallace on July 5 and “Merlot Murders” by Ellen Crosby on Aug. 2. “The Economist” called Wallace’s true story about a bottle of 1787 Bordeaux — supposedly Thomas Jefferson’s — that sold for $156,000 at auction “a gripping story…full of detail that will delight wine lovers. It will also appeal to anyone who merely savours a great tale, well told.” The library’s other monthly book groups also have their upcoming get-togethers planned. If you’d prefer a morning meet-

Michael Brewer has two severed heads and a set of daggers on his bed and a moose head on his dining room table. It goes with the territory when you’re working on Evil Dead The Musical. “I’ve been waiting for the scary dreams to start,” Brewer said, only half-joking. Brewer is set designer for CATCO’s production of Evil Dead The Musical, which opens next week. He said that, from a special-effects standpoint, it’s the biggest show he’s ever done, including operas and large-cast musicals. “We’re having (production) conversations about a singing beaver,” Brewer said. The show is a spoof of the popular cult slasher films, CATCO artistic director Steven Anderson, who also directs Evil Dead, told The Beat. As such, Brewer explained, the effects are designed to be “cool and awesome, but not scary. Believable, but not realistic.” “It’s a musical,” Anderson added. “We have eight good voices. The show is good fun, good comedy. Folks are going to walk out of the theatre humming the melodies. The other stuff is just icing on the cake.” Actually, the other stuff is not so much cake decoration but severed body parts (“I’ve spent hours looking for and buying body parts,” Brewer said, ostensibly meaning fake ones) and blood. Lots of blood. The theatre will include a “Safe Zone” and a “Splatter Zone.” The splattering blood has been measured at a maximum of 18 feet. “We’ll be providing protection,” Anderson assured. Josef Matulich was brought in to be the show’s “blood czar.” “There’s no such thing as an expert,” Matulich explained. “It’s

more mad inventor status.” He said he’s worked with a variety of mixtures — that, in addition to the visual effect, the blood formula must also be washable (costumes must last the threeweek run, for example), must be safe enough for actors to be sprayed in the face and needs to not jam the pumps and fixtures used to deliver the blood. For example, there is a scene in which an actor is stabbed with a dagger that is followed by a song delivered while using a hand pump to pump blood from the “wound.” “When an actor has to sing and dance while spurting blood, it complicates things,” Matulich said. Indeed — the functionality of the blood delivery mechanisms impacts more than just the technical aspect of the show. “The challenge in blocking the show was, whereas normally you are concerned with stage fixtures and the relationships of the ac-

tors, you have to get the actors to where things can happen, but get them there in a way that makes sense,” Anderson explained. “I’m comfortable we’ve achieved the goal of making it plausible and natural,” Brewer added. Apart from the times actors are asked to handle certain effects, much of the rest of the bleeding is coordinated from a single workstation under the stage, designed and built by Matulich. “It’s like a command center with gang valves,” he said. “I’ve discovered more types of plumbing fittings than I knew existed.” “You start out with an ideal of what you want and then work with the team to discover what you can do,” Anderson said. “I’ve been amazed at how close to ideal you can get.” For more on CATCO’s production of Evil Dead The Musical, read the BeatBlog at

New lunch menu unveiled at Sage American Bistro Last week, some lucky tablemates and I basically had Sage all to ourselves for a few terrific lunches. See, the top-tier North Campus place was attempting to roll out its new midday service slowly and on the down-low. Yeah, sorry Sage, that’s not likely to happen now that G.A. Loudmouth is on your case. And as word breaks out that Sage is making great soups, salads and lusty, handcrafted sandwiches for only a couple more bucks than fast food, I doubt I’ll be enjoying many more allalone nooners in there again any time soon. Working from a restrained menu that emphasizes tricked-out familiar sandwiches, Sage’s lunchtime fare is rife with bold, compound bites that wrangle the sweet and spicy, the salty and hearty, the leafy and meaty. And that includes soups and salads because Sage certainly excels in these culinary phases, too. Take, for instance, a recent Daily Soup ($6) flaunting deeply developed flavors. At its heart were tons of long-cooked,

MENU by G.A. Benton transparent onions with the texture of soft noodles. The soup’s body, which was creamy — but not excessively thick or gloppy — benefited handsomely from blue cheese pungency and a backbone of bacon. Instead of forgettable ephemera, the salads I tried at Sage actually provided me with something memorable to sink my teeth into. For example, “steaky” is not a word generally associated with a pile of greens, but it aptly describes the Grilled Caesar ($7). About half an intact head of smoky and grill-marked romaine was trimmed to its heart and embellished with hard-cooked egg, anchovies and a brashly rich dressing. The excellent Spring House Salad ($7) elegantly balanced delicate, chopped thin asparagus spears, shallots and a

do, melted Swiss and a sweet and spicy, chutneylike house-made chipotle ketchup. This grill-crusted black Angus big boy might’ve been a royal mess to handle but it was a princely feast to eat. The BLT+ ($9) similarly dressed up another old favorite. Its buttery and thick, Texas-toasty “grilled By Jodi Miller/ThisWeek brioche” bread held up Bistro Banh Mi with a side of bright red slaw from under the weight of much the new Sage lunch menu. super crispy bacon, good L and T plus a rich oncreamy, semi-sweet, rosemary-tinged dressing with upscale pork and beans.

Speaking of sides, Sage’s other extras, like the addictive, hand-cut fries ($3), the bright, sweet and tart red cabbage slaw ($2) and a not-so-simple Simple Salad ($3), were standouts in taste, size and price. If sandwiches aren’t your thing, there are also a Smoked Salmon pasta ($11) and a full-flavored, salt-edged meatball with a kicky “smoked tomato” gravy, killer tater-tot-riffing risotto cake and niftily contrasting arugula salad ($11). These entrees might even call for a nice libation from Sage’s fine drinks menu. I know my toast to Sage’s welcome and new — if no longer secret — lunch menu certainly did.

Barbecue veteran moves center of operations to new restaurant At 34, Stan Riley already is a 17-year veteran of the barbecue industry. As a junior in high school, Riley began washing dishes for Art Yoho, the man who would become his mentor — and later partner — in the restaurant business. Yoho, then owner of Yoho’s Café and Catering on Westerville Road in the North Linden area, showed Riley the ropes: how to cook, work the smoker, control food costs and manage labor. “Everything he taught me, I took with me,” said Riley, who opened his second Holy Smoke Barbecue last week at 5251 N. Hamilton Road near

New Albany. “We’re in a good place to grow,” he said. “I needed a commissary and catering facility that also had a retail setting.” The store, in 2,100 square feet of space that was formerly home to Baja Sol, is more than just a sit-down restaurant: It is now is the barbecue center of his universe. It is where he prepares all the meats for his two eateries (the original is in the North Market) in Southern Pride Smokers located out back. The space, which seats 50 inside and another 30 outside, is designed in a way that allows customers to take a visual survey of the offerings: a glass case out front houses the brisket, pork, ribs, sausage and chicken, plus a variety of Southern sides. “Hopefully, you see what you want to eat today and see what you want to eat tomorrow,” he said. When orders are prepared, patrons By Lorrie Cecil/ThisWeek retrieve their meals from the counter. Stan Riley stands in his second Holy Smoke Barbecue restaurant, which reRiley uses two cently opened at 5251 N. Hamilton Road. The original store is in the North kinds of wood: Market. For video of Riley at the restaurant, visit

shagbark hickory and cherry, which are cut from the log right before they enter the smoker. Beer will join the beverage list in the next week or so. Riley said he will have the typical American macro-brews in the bottle while offering a toire of micro-brews on tap. For the time being, there’s Frostop Root Beer on tap, along with other Recipe of the week cold beverages. Holy Smoke has its own brand of barbecue sauces — “Sweet and Smokey” and “Spicy Chipotle” — available tableside and for retail sale. And, Riley stresses, the ribs are slathered with sauce before serving, unless otherwise specified. He also offers several sauces for retail made by CaJohns Fiery Foods, a specialty-foods manufacturer located in Westerville. Incidentally, Riley and John Hard, the founder of CaJohns, were partners in the North Market before Hard left to concentrate on his salsas, sauces and spice mixes. He also makes Holy Smoke’s private label. The new store means the end of an era at the Westerville Road site, from which Riley was doing all of his cooking for the market and catering operations.

Wolves fall in district final By SCOTT GERFEN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Members of the Worthington Kilbourne High School baseball team ended the season feeling a sense of accomplishment even though they fell one win shy of a Division I district championship. With 12 seniors on their roster and having won the OCC-Central Division championship last year, the Wolves entered the season with high expectations, only to go 1111 during the regular season. However, after putting together a district tournament run as the 22nd seed, the Wolves feel better about their season. “The last two weeks we played some of the most exciting baseball I’ve ever been around,” coach Jeff Boulware said. “People have asked

•Record: 14-12 overall, 10-4 (tied for second) in OCC-Central •Seniors lost: Dan Eurich, Alio Gasbarro, Rocky Gasbarro, Brian Hoskins, Josh Hudson, Jake Lowery, Will Meador, Cameron Mills, Jeremy Patterson, Brandon Randolph, Cody Strayer and Zach Strayer •Key returnees: Brian Hanks, Jacob Niggemeyer, Jacob Shriver and Brian Sommers

quite a bit if I’m surprised we made it to a district final, but with the leadership we had with this group of seniors, they fully expected to be there.” Kilbourne opened the tournament with a 7-6, eight-inning win

over Newark in the first round on May 9. It then defeated Dresden Tri-Valley 7-6 in the second round on May 11 and upset top-seeded Pickerington North — ranked third in the final state poll — 2-1 in nine innings in a district semifinal on May 18. The Wolves’ postseason run ended with a 5-2 loss to ninth-seeded Grove City in a district final on May 20 at Hilliard Davidson. The district final began a day earlier but was suspended because of bad weather with Grove City leading 1-0 in the top of the fifth inning. The next day when play resumed, Kilbourne scored two runs in the bottom of the fifth on an RBI single by Will Meador and a throwing error to take a 2-1 lead. Grove City, however, scored four runs in the top of the seventh.

“It was tough to lose that way, but everything happens for a reason,” senior catcher Brandon Randolph said. “They scored those runs with two outs in the top of the seventh. They were a good team and now you’ve got to root for them.” Grove City plays West Chester Lakota West in a regional semifinal on Thursday, May 26, at Dublin Coffman. It’s the Greyhounds’first regional appearance since 2000. Against Pickerington North, senior Cody Strayer hit a solo home run in the top of the ninth to put the Wolves ahead 2-1 and freshman Jacob Niggemeyer did not allow any runs in the bottom of the ninth to seal the win. Kilbourne went 10-4 in the OCCCentral to tie Davidson for second,

Thomas’ Cempre wins district By PAUL BATTERSON ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Thomas finished fifth in the OCC-Buckeye Division at 2-4, behind Dublin Jerome (6-0), Upper Arlington (4-2) and Hilliard Davidson (3-3), and ahead of Dublin Coffman (1-5) and Dublin Scioto (0-6). The Cardinals went 1-1 in the C bracket round-robin of the Midwest Scholastic Lacrosse Coaches Association tournament May 6-7 in Hudson. They defeated host Western Reserve Academy 12-11 and lost to Detroit Country Day 6-5. “Western Reserve was probably our best game,” said Galipault, whose team had lost the four in a row to Western Reserve since 2005. “We were down 7-2 in the first half and came back to beat a very good team.” The Cardinals lose five seniors in at-

Senior Casey Cempre of the Thomas Worthington High School boys tennis team isn’t just returning to the Division I state tournament in singles. He is doing so as a district champion. Cempre advanced to the state tournament on Friday, May 27, and Saturday, May 28, at Hilliard Davidson, after finishing first in the district tournament on May 20-21 at Davidson. He defeated Dublin Coffman’s Hiromi Nakayama — a three-time state qualifier — 6-2, 6-1 in the final to become the Cardinals’ first district champion in singles since 1998. Cempre will open state against Shaker Heights’ David Gabriel, who finished sixth in the Northeast District. “I’m just happy to be going back the second time. Not a lot of people get that chance,” he said. “I guess this one seems more special than the other one because I’m a senior now.” The past three seasons, the district champion in singles has gone on to finish first or second at state. Kevin Metka, a 2010 Worthington Kilbourne graduate, won the singles title last year and Peter Kobelt, a 2009 New Albany graduate, placed second in ’08 and first in ’09. Cempre showed off his mental toughness at district, as he trailed Upper Arlington’s Brandon Griffin 4-0 in the first set in a quarterfinal before rallying to win 7-6 (7-3), 6-1 to secure a state berth. In a semifinal, Cempre had split the first two sets with New Albany’s Steve Miller, winning the first 6-2 and losing the second 6-4, before Miller retired in the third set because of an injury. A state quarterfinalist last year, Cempre said he picked up a lot of confidence after defeating

Worthington Christian Roundup

Custer, Stomps lead Warriors into regional By JARROD ULREY

At a glance

ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Not everything went according to plan for the Worthington Christian High School boys and girls track and field teams during the Division III district running finals May 21, but there still were some reasons for excitement. In the district meet May 17-18 and 21 at Gahanna, the Warriors advanced two individuals and two relays to the regional meet that began May 25 and concludes Friday, May 27, at Fairfield Union. The girls 400-meter relay helped compensate for the Warriors being disqualified in the final of the 1,600 relay by finishing first in 51.4 seconds. The 400 relay didn’t come together until late in the season, according to sophomore Donyell Miller. She ran on the relay along with seniors Mackenzie Clapper and Tobie Weston and junior Allie Custer. “It felt good,” Miller said. “It’s been a good season. At the beginning, we had some trouble with our handoffs, but it’s been real exciting to watch us grow together. We’ve been working

Below are the regional qualifiers for the Worthington Christian track & field teams with district event, place and time/distance/ height: BOYS — Michael Stomps: 400 (third, 53.22); 400 relay: Chris Bradley, Connor Brown, Sam Isner, Stomps (third, 44.87); Girls - Allie Custer: 400 (third, 1:02.55); 400 relay: Mackenzie Clapper, Custer, Donyell Miller, Tobie Weston (first, 51.4)

hard every day.” Clapper, Custer and Weston were among those who ran on the 1,600 relay that finished ninth at state last year. That trio, along with junior Anna Shaw, ran the second best preliminary time (4:22.98) at district before getting disqualified in the final. Also advancing to the regional for the girls was Custer in the 400 (third, 1:02.55). Weston took sixth in the 200 (27.86) and Clapper was seventh in the 800 (2:30.82) as the top four moved on.

The girls team finished 12th (21) behind champion Grandview (100.5) as 26 teams scored. The boys team placed 13th (17.5) behind champion Columbus Academy (83.5) as 21 teams scored. After the Warriors were 10th in the 2009 state meet and 13th last year in the 400 relay, they moved on to regional in the event with a third-place district finish (44.87). Juniors Chris Bradley and Michael Stomps are on the relay again after both ran on it each of the past two seasons. Senior Connor Brown is another returnee from the relay last year. During preliminaries, Bradley, Brown, Stomps and junior David Manns-Moses had the third-best time (45.13). Manns-Moses was unable to run his leg of the final because of a hamstring injury, but senior Sam Isner filled in. “We felt like we could make it to the regional,” Brown said. “We’re happy to make it after David got hurt during the semifinal. We’re happy to make it with this kind of being a recovery year for us.” Stomps added a third-place finish in

The top four in each event at regional qualify for the state meet June 3-4 at Ohio State. •The season came to an end May 20 for the boys tennis team. Freshman Joel Montgomery qualified for district after finishing fourth in the Division II sectional tournament at Columbus School for Girls and Columbus Academy on May 12 and 14, but he was forced to default in a sectional semifinal loss to Granville’s Danny Gardner because of a leg injury. He also defaulted his sectional consolation match. Because of the injury, Montgomery elected to scratch from his first-round district match against Watterson’s Chris Diaz, who won the title. Montgomery missed two weeks of the regular season because of the same injury and went 8-2 overall. In the sectional May 12 at CSG, winning first-round matches but losing in

the second round were junior Reid Smith in singles and the doubles team of seniors Seth Montgomery and Tanner Singleton. The doubles team of senior Conor Holland and junior Jonathan Myer lost in a quarterfinal. Senior David Feusse lost in his sectional opener in singles. Andrew Siders rounded out the senior class. Others who could take on key roles next year are sophomores Luke Howard and Josh Ong and freshman Sam Coon. Worthington Christian finished with a 7-5 record in duals. “We had a really good showing (at the sectional),” fourth-year coach Alex Schmidt said. “We reached our goal of doubling our win total from last year when we won three matches. It could easily have been different if Joel had been healthy all year because we were in those matches that we lost. “I’ve heard good things from our eighth grade. It’ll be exciting to see the new freshmen and see how they contribute.”

Wolves can’t solve Panthers By SCOTT GERFEN

ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Worthington Kilbourne High School boys volleyball team knew its opponent all too well when it advanced to a Division I East Region semifinal. Hilliard Darby, the top seed in the region, has been a longtime nemesis of the Wolves in the OCC, having won 11 consecutive league championships. Kilbourne had been beaten twice by the Panthers during the regular season, losing 2518, 25-11, 25-12 on April 14 and 23-25, 25-11, 25-21, 2515 on May 5. Unfortunately for the Wolves, the result of their third match against Darby this season was the same as the first two, as Kilbourne lost 25-17, 25-9, 25-14 on May 18. “I know our team went into that game thinking we had a chance, but we just didn’t play very well,” senior Connor Peck said. “We really just didn’t pass very well in that game.” Despite three losses to Darby, Kilbourne made a marked improvement from last season. A year after finishing 7-18 to finish with a losing record for just the third time in 19 years, the Wolves went 16-9 overall. The Wolves opened the season with five consecutive victories. “We had a pretty good season in that we beat the teams we were supposed to beat, but we really never had that defining moment,” senior Jake Wood said. “I think the mental part of the game got to us and that was our downfall.” Kilbourne went 5-5 in the OCC-Ohio Division to tie Dublin Coffman for third, behind Darby (10-0) and Hilliard Davidson (8-2) and ahead of Upper Arlington (2-8) and Thomas Worthington (0-10). “We were cautiously optimistic heading into the season, but I thought we could’ve done

Thomas ended its season with a 25-14, 25-17, 25-18 loss to Pickerington North in the first round of the Division I East Region tournament on May 14. “I think we’re starting to come along as a program and some of the coaches were even complimenting us after games,” Ebright said. “Programs in the OCC-Ohio are well-established, so we know we’re going to have some work to do to be competitive.” Junior setter Ben Metersky, sophomore defensive specialist Shane Barnovsky and junior outside hitter Kevin Sword improved their skills this season, Ebright said. Metersky was named honorable mention allleague. The Cardinals lose only two seniors in middle blocker/outside hitter Donovan LaDuke and outside hitter Cole Miracle. “I pulled some of the older guys at times this season and I think that really ignited some fires,” Ebright said. “Hopefully that will only help us next season.”

team all-region and Wood was first-team all-league and honorable mention all-region. Peck was second-team all-league and Miller was honorable mention all-league. Expected to return are juniors Cody Kuepfer (outside hitter), Cole Kuepfer (setter) and Zach Tisdale (outside hitter) and sophomores Grant Hartman (outside hitter) and Alex Rayis (middle blocker).

Coach Andy Cox thought his Thomas Worthington High School boys track and field team had the makeup of a champion, and the Cardinals proved that by winning the Division I, district 1 title on May 21 at Hilliard Bradley. Thomas was one of three OCC-Central Division boys teams to win district championships. Hilliard Davidson won the district 2 title and Dublin Coffman won district 3. In the league meet, which concluded May 14 at Davidson, the Cardinals finished third (129.5 points) behind Davidson (170.5) and Coffman (158.5). “The kids performed well (at district). The weather was nice and the kids were feeling pretty good,” said Cox, whose team scored 87 points to finish ahead of runner-up Pickerington North (78.5) as 16 team scored. “The league meet is important and everything, but this is where the ball starts rolling. This is where we try to get guys to the next level.” Junior Armand Austin reached the next level by winning the 400 meters in 48.85 seconds to qualify for regional, which began May 25 and concludes Friday, May 27, at Pickerington North. The top four in each district event advanced to regional, where the top four in each event advance to state June 3-4 at Ohio State. “Armand is starting to believe in himself and that he can go a little faster and not break down,” Cox said. “He is well on his way.” Junior Nana Kyeremeh qualified in the 100 (second, 11.36) and 200 (third, 22.71) and as a member of the district champion 800 and 1,600 relays. Junior Kevin Girgis qualified for regional by finishing fourth in the 200 (22.93) and as a member of the 800 relay. “Kevin Girgis has sometimes been overshadowed by Armand, and he was able to qualify in both the 200 and on the (800 relay),” Cox said. “He really has come a long way from where he was as a freshman.” Austin, Girgis and Kyrermeh are part of a talented junior class that Cox decided to put to the test at district. “Part of the plan going into the meet was to see how the juniors could handle the volume of running in big meets,” Cox said. “We started planning in January where we wanted to be and what events we would be running at this time of the season. We wanted to see if they could handle running four events and what they have done has been awesome.” A pair of freshmen advanced in the high jump as Michael Wood was second (6 feet, 2 inches) and Jalen Wells was third (6-0).

Below are the regional qualifiers for the Kilbourne and Thomas track & field teams with district event, place and time/distance/height: KILBOURNE BOYS — Jeremie Nsumbu: long jump (third, 21-1 3/4) GIRLS — Taylor Hill: 400 (first, 59.76); Hannah Lovegrove: discus (fourth, 103-3); Erica Rodriguez: long jump (second, 15-10 3/4), pole vault (second, 9-0) THOMAS BOYS — Armand Austin 400 (first, 48.85); Kevin Girgis: 200 (fourth, 22.93); Nana Kyeremeh: 100 (second, 11.36), 200 (third, 22.71); Ryan McFarland: 800 (fourth, 1:58.74); Jalen Wells: high jump (third; 6-0); Michael Wood: high jump (second, 6-2); 800 relay: Girgis, Andrew Maetzold, Austin and Kyeremeh (first, 1:28.81); 1,600 relay: Kyeremeh, Austin, McFarland and Maetzold (first, 3:21.15); 3,200 relay: Greg Highley, Ray Crook, Dan McGeary and McFarland (third, 8:08.58) GIRLS — Cheyenne Buckingham: 3,200 (third, 11:54.61); Rachel Erb: pole vault (second, 10-0); Madison Girardi: high jump (third, 5-0); Danielle Henderson: 200 (second, 26.6); 400 relay: Abi Agyepong, Erb, Henderson and Frannie Frazier (fourth, 50.67)

“I really like our team chemistry with a group of older kids and some young ones mixed in,” Cox said. “They all get along and like each other, and that goes a long way.” In the Division I, district 2 girls meet, the Cardinals finished fifth (62) of 12 teams that scored as Pickerington Central (126) won the title. •Kilbourne finished sixth (61) in the Division I, district 3 girls meet behind champion Dublin Scioto (139) as 11 teams scored. “We scored 61 points this year, and we only scored 14 points last year. That’s more than four times as many points, so the hard work is paying off for the girls,” coach Chip Seely said. “We were having multiple scorers in events and that really adds up quickly.” Junior Erica Rodriguez qualified for regional in two events by finishing second in both the long jump (15-10 3/4) and pole vault (9-0). “Erica is only in her second season of track, but we knew she would be a good athlete because she is an outstanding gymnast for the school during the winter,” Seely said. “She was fifth going into the finals of the long jump and jumped over three people to take second. She burst out in the long jump and really put it all together.” In the Division I, district 3 boys meet, the Wolves finished 11th (15) of 14 teams that scored as Coffman (116.5) won the title.

Senior trio hopes to fuel Hartley girls to team title This weekend’s high school regional track and field meets are the final step to reaching a major goal for many athletes in central Ohio, which is qualifying for the state meet June 3-4 in Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium at Ohio State. The thrill of running, jumping, vaulting or throwing in the final event of the prep sports year is worth every second of preparation for most competitors. For three seniors at Hartley, the state meet represents not only another chance to win individual titles, but to recapture the Division II team championship. Aisha Cavin and Maya Pedersen were members of the Hartley team that finished third in Division II when they were freshmen and the team that won the Division II state title a year later. Chelsea Scott joined Cavin and

Pedersen last year and helped the Hawks finish second to Cleveland Collinwood. Now, the girls are determined to make their last high school meet memorable. LARRY “I think the state LARSON championship meet is nerve-wracking for us because we are Hartley and know what is expected of us,” Pedersen said. “We are a legacy in high school girls track and always will be, so it’s our responsibility to our school to move our performances up a notch.” Scott agreed with her teammate. “This final meet is a chance to showcase our talents and show every-

one that we are still on top, and running in this meet is really fun and exciting,” she said. Cavin, who won last year’s state title in the 400 meters, said, “This meet is different for us because of what it means for our school and that makes it all the better.” Looking ahead to what they face at state, Scott said it won’t be easy for the Hawks to win the title. “We have to be better this year than we were a year ago,” she said. “There are some outstanding teams out there including our neighbor, Eastmoor, who will challenge us, so we have to keep honest and work hard.” Pedersen said she, Cavin and Scott must lead the way. “The three of us have to set the example all day for our underclassmen,

who will have to produce for us to win the team title,” Pedersen said. “Our confidence has to remain high and we have to use our ability to the fullest.” Cavin had a different outlook on her final high school competition. “I know it will be as exciting as ever and I wouldn’t change anything at all that happened over the past three years, but it will have a bit of sadness knowing this is the last time we will be together representing our school,” Cavin said. “So we need to make the most of it and I think we are ready for it, because other runners know who we are and it’s our job to get the best results.” Reflecting on their love for the sport and where it has taken them, the three Hawks standouts have slightly different views.

“As a sprinter, track is really just about going out there and running as fast as you can and I love the thrill of it,” Calvin said. “There is a technical side and a mental side that are very important, but if you can keep your mind clear you can achieve many things.” “Track has opened my eyes to so many things and it makes you have strength inside and out,” Pedersen said. “Success comes from proving yourself and developing discipline in every aspect of the sport. I love the fact that it becomes mind over matter.” “I love the fact that you are surrounded with friends who have the same goals that I do,” Scott said. “No one is slacking off and when times See LARSON, page C8

Seniors key as Wolves make progress By JEREMY STEWART ThisWeek Community Newspapers

All the Worthington Kilbourne High School softball team wanted to do was to hit a little bit better. The hope was to reverse the outcome of some one- and tworun losses last year. If the Wolves were able to do that, they thought they had a good shot at finishing better than .500. Kilbourne accomplished those goals and more. The Wolves won their first eight games on the way to a 19-6 overall record, including 10-4 in the OCC-Central Division. “We had several goals this season and one was to get over the .500 mark,” coach John Warinner said. “We’re making progress. We had a lot of good pitching and a lot of good hitting and carried that through the season. We had good senior leadership.” The season ended on May 19 with a 4-2 loss to Delaware in a Division I district semifinal. That was the final game for seniors Sarah Bear, Jill Brandenburg, Mollie Jeck, Lauren Rossi and Alexis Williams. It was an experienced senior class that led a talented group of underclassmen. Rossi, a fouryear starter at shortstop, was named first-team all-OCC-Central and first-team all-district as

well as honorable mention allstate. She’ll continue her softball career at Mercyhurst after batting .462 with 22 RBI. She scored 38 runs and had 17 extra-base hits. Williams, who batted .341 with 20 RBI, was second-team allOCC-Central and honorable mention all-district. Leading the group of expected returnees is sophomore pitcher Sara Adams, who batted .440 with a team-best 35 RBI and was 14-4 with a 1.57 ERA and 185 strikeouts. She was first-team allOCC-Central and second-team all-district.

The Wolves’ Lauren Rossi takes the throw May 20 as Delaware’s Mikayla Cooper slides into second base during their Division I district semifinal, which Kilbourne lost 4-2.

Junior Lizzi Cherry, who batted .426 and was honorable mention all-OCC-Central, also is expected back as well as junior outfielder Steph Keller (.391) and freshmen first basemen Manda Cash (.371, 25 RBI). Cash was special mention all-OCC-Central. Also expected back are juniors Emily Row and Dani Mahaffey. “We finished last in the OCC the last two years,” Warinner said. “We wanted to not finish last again. We swept (Hilliard) Darby and (Hilliard) Davidson all four games and we beat Upper Arlington twice. We beat Thomas for the first time in awhile. Those were all highlights.” Kilbourne was third in the OCC-Central at 10-4 behind Central Crossing (13-0) and Thomas (10-3). Davidson was fourth at

7-7, followed by Darby (5-8), Dublin Coffman (4-10), Upper Arlington (3-11) and Westland (2-11). Central Crossing and Thomas never made up a game that was postponed on May 4. While Thomas has ended its season, Central Crossing plays in a regional semifinal on Thursday, May 26. According to Thomas coach Tom Gianas, that remaining game could go down as a forfeit, but there has been no official ruling by the OHSAA. Darby and Westland also never played a rematch. •Thomas also finished 19-6 overall, losing to Dresden TriValley 1-0 in a district semifinal. “I’m pretty pleased with the season,” Gianas said. “We turned around and started winning the close games that

we weren’t able to win before. We won almost all of our OCC games. I’m really looking forward to this group coming back next year.” Thomas, whose starting lineup was dominated by underclassmen, will lose seniors Sally Nichols, Paige Conant, Caroline Kissel and Kathleen Reid. Nichols, a two-year starter, was 16-3 with a 1.25 ERA. Junior Zoe Myers and sophomore Megan McLaughlin are expected to assume the pitching duties next season. Myers missed most of the season with a broken finger, but before she was injured she was among the team’s top hitters. The Cardinals are expected to return an experienced infield led by juniors Kim Hoerauf (SS), Emily Hofacre (2B), Kenzi Han-

num (3B) and Abby Zofchak (C/3B). Also expected to return are sophomores Tori Chirdon (C/RF), Rachel Garris (CF), Katie Holman (utility), Sarah Samuels (utility) and Clare Janowski (C). Zofchak was Thomas’ top offensive performer, batting .485 with 24 RBI and a programrecord tying seven home runs. Hoerauf batted .482 with 15 RBI and two home runs. Garris (.315, 13 RBI) and Hofacre (.365) were among the Cardinals’ other top hitters. Thomas had several players earn postseason honors, Gianas said. However, he doesn’t plan to release specifics until the team’s awards banquet on Tuesday, May 31.

Pedersen said he deserves all the credit for what she and her teammates have achieved. “Coach Jones is Hartley. He has shaped every one of us into who we are as runners,” she said. “The mental attitude and the confident mindset we have is all due to him. He has made me a better runner and, more important, a better person.” Describing what it will take to win the Division II state title

“They poached a lot and had really good ground strokes,” Juang said. “They were very consistent and quick on their feet.” “(The poaching style) took away our timing,” Lazaroff said. “I don’t think we did a good job adjusting to that. They did all the little things right and we didn’t.” The Wolves’ other district qualifier, senior Brian Aguirre, lost to New Albany’s Sean Yun 6-1, 7-5 in the first round. “Brian played a great second set,” said coach Steve Metzmaier, whose team finished 5-8 overall. “He knew how to beat the guy but had a few lapses when he was up and just let Sean back into it.” The Wolves lose six seniors in Aguirre, Juang, Lazaroff, Jon Wilkinson, Cort Wilson and Andrew Zuk. Expected to return are junior Adith Balaji, sophomore Jack Klein and freshman Justin Stone. Kilbourne finished fifth (3-4, 40 points) in the OCC-Central Division, behind Upper Arlington (7-0, 82), Thomas Worthington (6-1, 60), Dublin Coffman (52, 59) and Davidson (4-3, 41), and ahead of Hilliard Darby (25, 27) Westland (1-6, 10) and Central Crossing (0-7, 1). “The season overall went about

next week, Cavin said the Hawks can’t let down. “The thing that comes into to my mind first is that we need to turn into superheroes at the state meet,” she said. “We need to be proud of the ‘H’ that we wear on our uniforms and use the power we have to run well and capture our dreams.” The Hartley trio of “superheroes” and their supporting cast have two weekends left to prove their point.

Perrysburg’s Jeffrey Schorsch 6-4, 3-6, 6-1 in the first round of the state tournament a year ago. “Being in that situation at last year’s state tournament, the mecca of high school tennis if you will, helped him,” coach Tyler Stephen said. “If you can handle that stage, you can handle just about anything. He didn’t hit the big red panic button (when he fell behind against Griffin).” “(The win over Schorsch) is my fondest memories of the state tournament,” Cempre said. “You don’t want to go three sets, but if I do, I don’t get exhausted and I’m pretty confident now.” The Cardinals advanced five players to district, marking their largest contingent since 2002. However, the doubles team of Joey Wortman and David Edison lost to defending state champions Stu Little and Billy Weldon of Upper Arlington 6-1, 60 in the first round, and the doubles team of Mark Evans and Harrison Chang lost to Gahanna’s Canyon Teague and Stephen Cheng 6-1, 6-2 in the first round. Thomas was 11-4 overall before playing New Albany in a Division I OTCA district final on May 24. The winner advances to a state semifinal on Sunday, May 29, at Davidson.

Veterans to be honored at fairgrounds powwow By GARY BUDZAK

A closer look

ThisWeek Community Newspapers

A powwow held this weekend at the Franklin County Fairgrounds will honor and celebrate veterans. According to the Native American Indian Center of Central Ohio, which sponsors the powwow, war veterans traditionally open the event by leading dancers into the center of an arena to start each day with prayer and a flagraising. The powwow will include drum groups, dancing in regalia, contests, arts and crafts, and food such as fry bread. Ross Davidson will be one of

The 29th annual powwow will be held Saturday-Monday, May 28-30. The gates open at 11 a.m., with dancers entering at 1 and 7 p.m. (1 p.m. Monday). Admission is $7, or $3 senior citizens and students; or $15 for a weekend pass. Children age 5 and under are admitted free. Bringing a chair is recommended. The powwow will end at 10 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, and 5 p.m. Monday.

the participants in the powwow. Davidson, 73, lives in Plain City and has served in the U.S. Navy and as a police chief. He is also a maker of dance regalia, an expert at beading and quilting who has been accepted into the Native American community.

“Modern-day powwows as we know them began just before or shortly after World War II in Oklahoma,” Davidson said, “then they spread like wildfire.” Veterans are honored, he said, because Native Americans have a long history of serving in the United

States military, and they have a high rate of volunteers. “It’s a family event,” Davidson said of the powwow. “We get to see people we haven’t seen for a while, and meet new ones. That’s what it’s about — a celebration of life.” The 29th annual Selma Walker Memorial Powwow will be held Saturday-Monday, May 2830. The gates open at 11 a.m., with dancers entering at 1 and 7 p.m. (1 p.m. Monday). Admission is $7, or $3 senior citizens and students; or $15 for a weekend pass. Children age 5 and under are admitted free. Bringing a chair is recommended. The powwow will end at 10 p.m. on

Saturday and Sunday, and 5 p.m. Monday. “Having the powwow at the fairgrounds in Hilliard brings a lot of culture and diversity to our community and it also brings in visitors,” said Christy Clark, Destination Hilliard executive director. “Last year, we had 50 hotel rooms that individuals who participated in the powwow stayed at, so that generated quite a bit of income for us.” Usually, the powwows are held at the fairgrounds on Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends. However, those aren’t the only events that go on at the Fairgrounds besides the eight-day Franklin County Fair.

According to Destination Hilliard, the fairgrounds was host to 134 events last year in addition to the fair, including the powwows, auctions, gun shows, horse shows, Jaguar shows, model train shows, team penning and 4-H events. “I do not believe people realize how many events are held throughout the year at the Franklin County Fairgrounds,” said Tim Shade, Franklin County Agricultural Society secretary/manager, which owns the fairgrounds, in a statement. “We have events throughout the year during the week and on the weekends that draw people from all over the United States.”

Have You Heard? by Greg VanHorssen REMOVING WAX BUILDUP

If left to its own devices, the yellowish waxy substance secreted by the ear canal (“cerumen”) will migrate out of the ear uneventfully. However, for some, ear wax buildup can cause impaction and conductive hearing loss. Additionally, wearers of hearing instruments are instructed in the most effective means of keeping their devices free of debris that can compromise their functioning ability. In the first-ever study to look into the subject, researchers found that bulb syringes sold over-the-counter in pharmacies (along with waxsoftening solution) are generally effective in removing ear wax buildup. Home treatment involving the use of mineral oil or glycerin in the ear was also found to be effective for many. Otherwise, a professional should be consulted. If you produce excessive ear wax that is interfering with your hearing, a hearing care professional can clear your ear canal by removing impacted ear wax. Techniques used for this procedure include irrigation, use of special instruments, and suction. Don’t try to fix the problem yourself; call Absolute Hearing Solutions today at 614-654-4309 to schedule a complementary hearing & speech evaluation.

Be prepared by getting pre-approved Despite countless stories about the troubles in the housing market, there are many options available. That said, the first step in determining whether or not to shop for that new home is to discuss your financial situation with a trusted mortgage professional and get pre-approved. A pre-approval is one of two common processes prospective homebuyers engage in before making an offer on a home; pre-qualification is the other. Both allow customers to begin the buying process with a good idea of what they can afford, but there are clear advantages to going one step beyond pre-qualification to get pre-approved. Pre-qualification uses a home-buyer’s financial information — income, debts and other monthly obligations, such as child support payments — to determine a buyer’s debt ratio. Depending on how much or how little is available for a down payment, this process helps to determine the size mortgage the buyer can afford and the type of mortgage that best meets the buyer’s needs. Pre-approval takes the approval process to the end — almost. Only a few items remain outstanding, such as an appraisal of the property and confirmation the buyer will have whatever cash

is needed for the closing. For a comparatively small fee — usually about $50 — lenders will work through the steps necessary to receive a mortgage. Buyers who get pre-approved know exactly which financial guidelines BRIAN they are working within. The pre-approved buyer has the BURSTEIN lender’s approval for a specific mortgage amount. Lenders and real estate agents sometimes say pre-approval is the “same as cash,” which can often be an advantage in beating out other buyers. Searching for the right home, arranging a comfortable mortgage and closing the deal can be a challenging process. So doing a little legwork up front by becoming pre-approved can make the other challenges a whole lot easier. Brian Burstein is an area sales manager with Fifth Third Bank Mortgage. He welcomes the opportunity to take your comments and questions. Please feel free to contact him at 614-932-5473 or
