Administrators offer options for budget cuts By JENNIFER NESBITT

Good said. The administration also proposed purchasing some services in an effort to save the district $39,000 next year; moving the High School Transition Program in-house, saving $206,000 next year; and doing the same with the Middle School Emotionally Disturbed Program, saving $140,000. To further slash expenditures, the administration said the board could cut 20 positions from the 2012 budget, which would save $1.5 million in salaries and benefits. Ten of those positions were new to the 2012 school year and 10 are vacant positions. “These are empty positions. These are not positions with people in them,” board president Kristi Robbins said.

Westerville City Schools administrators brought forth potential cuts to the school board May 23 as the board adopted a five-year forecast that shows a $19.6-million deficit by the end of fiscal year 2013. Administrators suggested reducing the district’s purchased services expenditures, which include materials and supplies, by $1 million for the next school year. Superintendent Dan Good said some departments would bear more of the burden of cutting that fund than others because some expenditures, such as the cost of fuel, are beyond the district’s control. “It’s not an across-the-board reduction. Some areas would be cut more to realize that 4 percent,”

Council OKs $100K partnership By JENNIFER NESBITT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Westerville has partnered with TechColumbus to help spur business growth in the city. Westerville City Council approved a $100,000 partnership May 17 to join TechColumbus’ Entrepreneurial Signature Program. Through the program, TechColumbus will place a staff member in Westerville two days a week

to work on establishing networking programs for potential entrepreneurs, creating entrepreneurial workshops on a monthly basis and identifying prospective entrepreneurs and potential start-up businesses, as well as potential investors for them. The TechColumbus employee also will meet with existing Westerville companies that are in the developmental stages or that are looking at spinoff projects and will help to look for other sources of

funding for the city’s proposed business incubator. The partnership is meant to be a two-year deal, with the city paying an additional $100,000 for the program in January. However, that amount would have to be included in the budget council approves at the end of the year, and the agreement includes an opt-out clause if council chooses not to renew the deal next year, See $100K, page A2

HIGHLANDS Continued from page A1 So far, 1,200 season passes to the pool have already been sold, Auler said. In past years, the city typically sells only about 25 passes before the season starts. “There’s a lot of community excitement,” he said. Auler said the department anticipates it will sell between 4,500 and 6,000 pool passes, which does not include individual daily admission. The center generally sells around 4,000 season passes, he said. Despite the upgrades at the center, the city is maintaining the same pricing for the passes and daily admission this year, Auler said. The renovated aquatic center features leisure pool, a zero-entry toddler pool with slide, a slide tower with a speed slide and a body slide, a toddler spray playground, a spray playground for older children, a lazy river and an eight-lane, 25-meter pool with a diving well, plus a rentable cabana and an outdoor space complete with a 42-inch grill, refrigerator and outdoor cooking space. The renovations at the center also were aimed at making the facility more environmentally friendly. The center features green roofs planted with vegetation on some of its buildings, which reduces stormwater runoff by between 50 and 90 percent and increases cooling efficiency by about the same amount. There also is a rain garden on the site, which includes plants that are meant to absorb rainwater to reduce stormwater runoff. Areas in the parking lot and throughout the aquatic center also are planted with vegetation that is meant to reduce stormwater runoff, Auler said. “It creates less water runoff into the storm system,” he said. “Just the landscaping material reduces the concrete area.” The parking lot uses a special concrete that allows rainwater to filter through it and into the ground rather than running off and into storm sewers, Auler said.

$100K Continued from page A1 Westerville economic development administrator Jason Bechtold said. Through the deal, Bechtold said, Westerville’s existing businesses and those looking to start within the city will have access to TechColumbus programs and will be able to receive business assistance, such as one-on-one coaching and marketing and advice in finding capital, financing options and suitable locations. Councilman Craig Treneff cast the lone “no” vote against the partnership. He said he did not believe the deal is likely to help create enough jobs to generate enough income tax to cover the $100,000 expenditure. “I’m just not convinced that we’ll ever see anything approaching a return on this investment,” he said. “There’s too much payroll that would have to be generated to get back $100,000 than this program is likely to produce.” Treneff said he sees value in TechColumbus’experience in assisting businesses, but still could not justify the cost. “There may be some value added because of TechColumbus’ experience in this area,” he said. “The development of employment is important and appropriate, it’s just this specific contract is troubling to me.” Other council members said spending $100,000 for the services for the rest of this year will give the city a chance to see what kind of results TechColumbus can produce. “I want to see where it’s going to go. I don’t feel we’re committing a huge part of our budget,” Mayor Kathy Cocuzzi said. Council chairman Mike Heyeck said with so many other communities offering similar services, the partnership with TechColumbus will help Westerville stay competitive in attracting businesses. “This is really trying to participate in central Ohio,” Heyeck said.

MEMORIAL DAY

The base of the parking lot is concrete that was torn up, crushed and recycled from the park’s former parking lot, he said. The center’s pool systems also are more efficient, Auler said. Though the new aquatic center holds between 50,000 and 75,000 more gallons of water than the old aquatic center, there is one less pool pump needed to maintain the center. The parks and recreation department is working to secure a federal grant that will allow the city to expand the existing wetlands within the park and improve its quality. One feature that is planned for the park but won’t be installed for some time alludes to the environmental focus of the center, Auler said. The city will sell mosaic tiles at Fourth Friday events that will be used to create a mosaic on the center’s bathhouse.

“It will look like a wetlands when it’s done, with animals in the wetlands,” Auler said. The city is seeking Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification through the U.S. Green Building Council for the main building, which includes offices, public restrooms and showers, and a first-aid station, said Mike Hooper, parks and recreation department development administrator. Hooper said Westerville is close to submitting paperwork for the certification, and once that’s done, it will take several weeks for the city to hear back on whether the certification is granted. The city hopes that the center’s design will be energy-efficient enough to qualify for a LEED silver award, Hooper said.

Westerville library to seek 2 mills By JENNIFER NESBITT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Westerville Public Library will ask voters to approve a continuing 2-mill levy in November, helping the library to restore Sunday hours, purchase more materials and keep pace with tech-

nology. The Westerville Board of Education, which is the taxing body for the library, approved placing the levy on the ballot at its May 23 meeting. The library currently is collecting on a 0.8-mill levy, which has to be renewed every five years,

Westerville ‘adopts’ National Guard unit By JENNIFER NESBITT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

When the 684th Area Support Medical Company of the National Guard deploys to Afghanistan in September, it will have the support of the city of Westerville behind it. Westerville City Council approved a proclamation earlier this month welcoming the guard unit back to the city of Westerville and designating Westerville as the unit’s home base. The guard unit called Westerville home until it was disbanded in 1996. The unit has since contacted Mayor Kathy Cocuzzi about being adopted by the city of Westerville. “Since they’re going to be deployed, they were told they had a choice of the community that was going to adopt them,” Cocuzzi said. “I was very excited that they called. … We have this long history with the National Guard troop in Westerville.” First Sgt. Kevin Runyon, who lives in Westerville, said he believed Westerville is a perfect match for the unit because the city has had a past relationship with it and because the city has long shown its support of the military through events such as its Field of Heroes. “As a traditional guardsman, I’ve always thought that the guard and the community are a natural match,” Runyon said. “I felt it was a missing piece of the puzzle for both sides.” The National Guard unit includes 75 members from throughout Ohio, with most hailing from central Ohio, Runyon said. The unit will have its call to duty ceremony Sept. 11 before heading to training and then to Afghanistan, he said. Cocuzzi said the city still is working on details of what Westerville will be doing to engage the guard unit, but unit members will serve as parade marshals for

ThisWeekNEWS.com &

the 4th of July parade. They also have been invited to be special guests at the city’s Honor Flight pancake breakfast, and the city is planning a pool parties for the unit members their families. She said Westerville also will be involved in the unit’s call to duty event and will find ways to support it while it’s gone, such as by sending care packages and having students from the city’s schools write letters to the soldiers. “We hope to be doing things with them all year long. It’s just a matter of what they can do and what they can’t do,” Cocuzzi said. “It’s an honor to be able to take care of our soldiers serving overseas and let them know that there’s a whole community that cares about them.” Runyon said the unit is thrilled with the way Westerville has embraced it. “Everybody in our command group, the way that they’ve accepted us back, they’re extremely excited,” Runyon said. “We’re happy to be part of this community and we look forward to building this relationship before we are deployed.” The greatest part of having the support of the community for guard unit members, Runyon said, is knowing that there will be a community here looking after the members’ families while the unit is deployed. “If the families have support, it makes our mission so much easier — that we don’t have to worry when we’re gone,” he said. Cocuzzi said the city is privileged to be able to support the guard unit in this way. “It’s an honor to be able to take care of our soldiers serving overseas and let them know that there’s a whole community that cares about them,” she said. “We’ve welcomed back the National Guard before, and now they’re going to the front lines. You have to support your soldiers.”

library director Don Barlow said. The library is raising the millage to help restore funding lost through continuing state cuts and is looking to make the levy permanent to avoid having to go to the ballot regularly, Barlow said. The 2-mill levy will cost residents $200 per every $100,000 in property valuation, he said. Following cuts in the state’s last biennial budget, the library cut Sunday hours and materials budget and continued a hiring freeze. State funding provides the majority of the library’s revenue. “The library is now funded at 1994 funding levels,” Barlow said, although library traffic has increase by 42 percent in that time. Since voters last passed a replacement levy for the library in 2007, the state’s library funding has been cut by 41 percent, and Barlow said he expects to continue to see state funding levels decrease. The proposed levy would generate nearly $5 million in its first year, allowing the library to refill 14 positions, restore its materials budget, replace its 60-year-

old HVAC system, reopen on Sundays, keep pace with technology and increase school outreach programs and adult and children’s programs, he said. “For us to be successful, we simply must have stable funding to meet the growing needs of our community,” Barlow said. Westerville’s library costs the least per resident than other libraries in Franklin County, Barlow said. “The (library) is currently the lowest-funded library in Franklin County,” he said. If the levy passes, Barlow said, the library would be the thirdlowest funded library in Franklin County. Because the library’s taxing boundaries follow the Westerville City Schools boundaries, all residents within the Westerville City School District will vote on the library levy in November. If passed, funds produced by the levy would be collected starting in January 2012. jnesbitt@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekNEWS.com

BOUNTIFUL GROWERS GREENHOUSES PROFESSIONAL HORTICULTURE SINCE 1979

Letter

Legislators shouldn’t cut gifted education from budget To the editor: Ohio lawmakers are prepared to cut gifted education by a whopping 89 percent within the state’s new education budget. We know today’s economy means we all have to cut back, but why are gifted students targeted to take the biggest hit? Why are they singled out as not deserving an adequate education? We are fortunate in the Westerville City School District. Superintendent J. Daniel Good is committed to gifted education and hopes to maintain our present service levels. For that, I am thankful. I must, however, be realistic. With monies being cut so dramatically, and our district facing a deficit, for how long will we be able to

maintain this service? Now is the time to let our legislators in the Statehouse know how important gifted service is. After all, public education is education for all children. Cutting funding for one specific group more deeply than any other group is simply unfair and unacceptable. If you agree with me, please take the time today to let your representatives and the Senate Finance Committee know via e-mail and phone. Here is what we need our lawmakers to change in the current budget language, at a minimum: • Keep the “maintenance of effort” provision. Without a “maintenance of effort,” many Ohio districts plan to cut or eliminate gift-

ed services. The governor said that gifted funding was in basic aid, so this is not an unfunded mandate. • Restore the 89-percent funding cut. • Make districts accountable for the performance of gifted students. I honestly fear a future that grows from the wasteland of neglected potential. It’s time for us to take some action to ensure that all students — including our gifted students — have the opportunity to learn in school. One day we will realize our shortsightedness and pay the cost of not investing in these children.

As it were

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 more 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 ED were doing at all. LENTZ 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

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. To that end, the school children of Columbus were asked to bring bouquets of flowers to the Franklin County Memorial Hall on Monday, May 29. Because there was some doubt, the public was asked to bring flowers, as well. There was no reason to worry. By Tuesday morning, there were more than enough flowers to accompany the 2,500 American flags to be placed in cemeteries around the city: “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).

DATA CENTER Continued from page A1 million The exact amount of the Corna Kokosing bid was $3.419 million. The amount awarded by council takes into account the $90,000 of additional work the city was able to afford with the low bid, and a 7-percent construction contingency. The data center will be built on a 1.399-acre plot at 33 Collegeview Road purchased by the city in October from Otterbein University for $104,925. At that time, council also approved the sale of up to $5.75 million in bonds for costs related to the construction of the center. Once completed, the data center will house servers, electronic

storage equipment and broadband Internet and voice services provided by retail carriers. It will link to city offices and local businesses and organizations through the city’s fiber-optic network, which, when finished, will connect city offices and run through the city’s major business districts, including Uptown, the South State Street corridor, Brooksedge, Eastwind, northern Westerville and Westar. Companies that provide managed technology services, such as IT help desks, complete IT services and email services, will be able to rent space in the center to provide services to local businesses. The goal of the data center, Jackson has said, is to provide medium and small businesses

with access to broadband and technological services they otherwise will not be able to afford. The data center will be paid for through fees. Council chairman Mike Heyeck praised the city’s staff for its work on the data center. “This is going to be a real good addition to the city of Westerville,” Heyeck said. Councilman Eric Busch said he was glad to see a bid that allowed the city to invest more now to save in the future, even though it did mean spending an additional $90,000. “That’s cost avoidance in the future,” Busch said.

BUDGET CUTS Continued from page A1 Interim treasurer Steve Huzicko said the jobs that would be eliminated are five kindergarten through eighth-grade positions, three highschool positions and two administrative positions. The five-year financial forecast passed by the board May 23 shows the district spending $10.1 million more that it will bring in the 2012 school year. Thanks to the cash it has on hand, the district still is projected to end the year with a $3.8-million cash surplus. In 2013, the five-year forecast shows the district spending $23.4 million more than it is projected to take in, ending the year with a $19.6-million deficit. The deficit was made worse, Huzicko said, by cuts in state funding, an expected drop in local property values, an unexpected cut in the amount the district will receive for “payment in lieu of taxes” and by the loss of the state’s tangible personal property tax. The administration has said the board can look to cut costs, raise revenue or a combination of the two in an effort to balance the budget. “You can do it entirely with cuts or you can do it purely with a raise in revenue, but it’s more likely a

combination of the two,” Good told the board. Cutting costs and raising revenue will be part of the board’s discussion as it goes into the budgeting process for fiscal year 2012, which runs from July 1 of this year through June 30, 2012. The board must pass the 2012 budget by June 30. Board members have scheduled a retreat at 8 a.m. June 13, at which they will discuss potential cuts or ways to raise revenue, Robbins said. The board’s next scheduled voting meeting is 6 p.m. June 27. Members of the public who spoke to the board at its meeting May 23 asked the school board to avoid raising taxes. “From 2000 through 2009, my tax payments for Westerville City Schools have increased 58 percent,” resident Pete Wilms said. “The assessed valuation of my house has increased 20 percent and the enrollment of the Westerville City School District has increased less than 7 percent. My school taxes are too high.” With people across the state losing jobs and seeing salary cuts or freezes, Wilms said, Westerville schools employees were given a 2.5-percent raise for this school year and a 1.75-percent raise next school year, on top of the annual

step increases most employees receive of 4.5 percent. “Talk of the need for new revenues to replace the lost state and property tax revenues has already surfaced,” Wilms said. “To coin a popular phrase, we are not being taxed too little; we are spending too much.”

AS IT WERE Continued from page A4 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 Columbus. 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 Spanish-American 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 Spanish-American 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 quite pleasant day for the unofficial beginning of the summer of 1911 in Columbus.

Genoa mulls deal to put soccer fields at park By BONNIE BUTCHER ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Genoa Township is considering an agreement with the Central Ohio Soccer Association (COSA) to improve 26 acres of parkland on Sheffield Park Drive, near Jaycox Road. Donated to the township by Virginia Homes in 2009, the land needs extensive grading work, parks manager Ron Keil said. COSA president Bob Tener told trustees May 19 the association would

like to improve the property by constructing about six fields for sports such as soccer and lacrosse. “Over the past year and a half we’ve been discussing opportunities to partner with the township on a way to develop this parkland and use it for athletic fields,” Tener said. Trustees affirmed their interest, saying they had concerns about parking, traffic and landscape buffering for nearby residences in Sheffield Park. Tener said COSA would need to “secure a 25-year lease” on the property.

The agreement, which is still developing, would include the township seasonally receiving $5 from each player’s fees. That money would go to the township’s park improvement fund. COSA also suggests the site have a trail, utilities, a parking lot and driveway, and a building with a concession area and small meeting hall. Keil said the partnership would be a win-win for the township, which doesn’t want to run a sports program because it is costly to do so.

The park also has a large hill that would be used for sledding in winter, Keil said. Trustees would have to approve various steps in the process, which they said must include sessions for the public to weigh in on the idea. In other park news, the township is rethinking some of the planned improvements for McNamara Park. The lowest bid for the project was Trucco Company coming in at $1.45 million. The township only appropriated about $950,000 for park improve-

ments. Administrator Paul Wise said the township is working with Trucco and the prosecutor’s office to see if Genoa can perform some of the improvements in-house to lower the costs. The improvements for the 30-acre park include developing wetland rain gardens, adding 1.5 miles of trail improvements that will encircle the park and connect to Genoa Township Community Hall, and installing tennis courts. bbutcher@thisweeknews.com

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 cofounded 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 target.”

See video of Blue Star Mothers: ThisWeekNEWS.com 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.”

MARBURN ACADEMY CONGRATULATES AARON SVOBODA

“STUDENT SPOTLIGHT” Marburn Academy is proud to acknowledge the contributions of Robert S. Garek Merit Scholarship recipient Aaron Svoboda to the Marburn Academy community. Junior Aaron Svoboda enjoys coming to Marburn Academy every day. “Every year at Marburn is a good year. I receive individual attention from my High School teachers and they understand the way I learn best. I can’t wait to be a senior, and work on my Capstone documentary project next year,” said Svoboda. Research in bio-remediation, culminating in an individual project on utilizing a bio-filter to help sustain life is a major focus for Svoboda at Marburn. The High School science faculty supports him in this endeavor. Svoboda also uses his expertise in climbing and rappelling to volunteer with the Marburn Lower Division and Middle Division Voyageurs program. He has assisted several different classes with their climbing and rappelling skills. Climbing is an important skill taught at Marburn. As a result of his experience with climbing from Marburn Academy, Svoboda has almost completed his certification in climbing from Summit Vision Center, located in Westerville, Ohio. Svoboda also participates in Cross Country and volunteers with his church. Everyone at Marburn Academy is proud of an outstanding leader like Aaron Svoboda.

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 www.ThisWeekNews.com.

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

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.

Riley said he will have the typical American macro-brews in the bottle while offering a reperwww.ThisWeekNews.com/foodandwine 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.

Warriors fall in district semifinal By AARON BLANKENSHIP ThisWeek Community Newspapers

By Tim Norman/ThisWeek

The Central baseball team mobs Kyle Pollock after his two-run home run in the bottom of the ninth inning sent the Warhawks to a 4-2 victory over Pickerington Central in a Division I district semifinal May 20 at Delaware. Central went on to win the district title with a 12-7 win over Reynoldsburg on May 21 at Olentangy.

Warhawks win first district title By FRANK DiRENNA ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Westerville Central High School baseball team is enjoying “a dream season.” Led by its seniors and several talented underclassmen, the fourth-seeded Warhawks won the program’s first district title with a 12-7 win over Reynoldsburg in a Division I district final on May 21 at Olentangy. Central had never advanced past the second round of the district tournament. The school opened in 2003. “It’s been a dream season, a magical

season where weird, funny things have happened,” coach Jeff Keifer said. “We knew we had the ability to do it. There were a lot of good teams in our way. I’m so proud of the seniors specifically, but I’m proud of all these guys because they’ve worked extraordinarily hard to get to this point.” Central plays Gahanna in a regional semifinal at 2 p.m. Thursday, May 26, at Dublin Coffman. The winner plays Grove City or West Chester Lakota West in a regional final at 5 p.m. Friday, May 27, at Coffman. The regional champion advances to a state semifinal June 2 at Huntington Park.

The state title game is June 4 at Huntington Park. Gahanna advanced to its third regional semifinal in four seasons with a 5-1 win over Coffman on May 21. Gahanna and Central played in the second round of the district tournament last season, with the Lions winning 8-3. The Warhawks are 23-7 overall and Gahanna is 24-6. “Gahanna is a great team,” Keifer said. “They’ve had a great year; they have a great tradition. When our guys are rested and focused, I like our chances.” Central proved it could win a lowscoring contest and also a slugfest in its

past two games. Against Reynoldsburg, the Warhawks took a 10-1 lead in the fifth inning. Senior Kyle Pollock led Central with two doubles, two singles and three RBI. Danny Lawrence had two hits and three RBI, and Jake Simmerman hit a three-run home run to center field in a five-run fifth inning. Chris Gygi was the winning pitcher and got relief help from John Whitaker. Gygi went 4 1/3 innings, allowing five hits. He struck out four and walked four. Whitaker pitched the final 2 2/3 inSee BASEBALL, page D6

Hoffman leads Central girls at district meet By FRANK DiRENNA

At district, Central finished

ThisWeek Community Newspapers eighth (40 points) behind first-

Westerville Central High School junior Jordan Hoffman entered the 300-meter hurdles final at the Division I, district 1 girls track and field meet May 21 at Hilliard Bradley with the top time (48.32 seconds) from the preliminaries. As expected, Hoffman won the race (46.31) and is now looking for similar success at the regional meet, which began May 25 and concludes Friday, May 27, at Pickerington North. “I’m hoping to break 46 at regional, which would be a personal best,” Hoffman said. The top four finishers in each event qualified for the regional. The top four at regional will qualify for the state meet, which is June 3-4 at Ohio State.

place Dublin Coffman (152). Hoffman qualified for the district finals in the 300 hurdles the past two seasons, finishing sixth in 2009 and seventh in 2010. She will be joined at regional by teammate Kristen Norris, who finished fourth (47.79) in the 300 hurdles. Hoffman and Norris also will compete at regional in the 400 relay with Taesha Coles and Taylor Reneau after finishing third (49.86) at district. Central’s other regional qualifier was Ali Fehlhaber, who was fourth in the 400 (1:01.19). Sprinter Davon Reed and pole vaulter Charlie Moushey led the boys team at district. Reed won the 100 (11.33) at the district 1 meet and was part of the third-place 800 relay

Junior center fielder Sami Dustman wasn’t disappointed in junior Alli Rowland’s pitching or the Westerville North High School softball team’s defense in its Division I district semifinal against top-seeded Central Crossing. According to Dustman, North simply ran into an offensive juggernaut in the 10-0, five-inning loss May 19 at Pickerington Central. “Alli pitched a good game and we didn’t have any errors, but Central Crossing can hit the ball everywhere from the top to the bottom of their lineup,” said Dustman, whose team finished 17-9 overall. “They outhit us the entire game and there was nothing we could do to stop them.” The Comets had 21 hits to four for North. “If we hit the ball, we would have been OK,” junior first baseman Alex Brooker said. “They hit the ball into a lot of gaps and we didn’t hit well at all.” The Warriors enjoyed a successful regular season in which they swept Westerville South, winning 9-4 on April 13 and 53 on May 9, and split with Westerville Central, winning 3-2 on April 6 and losing 6-3 in eight innings on May 11. “We ruled the ‘Ville’ because we went 3-1 against the other Westerville teams,” Dustman said. North tied Marysville atop the OCC-Cardinal Division with an 11-3 league mark to win its first OCC title since 2001. Rounding out the OCC-Cardinal standings were Central (95), Olentangy (9-5), South (68), Olentangy Liberty (6-8), Dublin Scioto (2-12) and Dublin Jerome (1-13). The Warriors beat Marysville 2-0 in their league finale on May 13 to prevent the Monarchs from winning the title outright. North also defeated Briggs 11-0 in six innings in its district opener on May 10 and beat Lancaster 3-2 in the second round on May 12. “Beating Marysville to (share) the OCC title was the biggest highlight for us,” Brooker said. “It was special because it’s our first OCC championship in 10 years.” The Warriors will lose two seniors in shortstop Sarah Lawrence and third baseman See SOFTBALL, page D3

League title was highlight for North

Warhawks’ Buchanan ends season at district By FRANK DiRENNA ThisWeek Community Newspapers

By SCOTT GERFEN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

As the Westerville North High School boys volleyball team entered the Division I East Region tournament, senior Alex Kirkpatrick realized what was at stake — his final chance to reach a state championship match. Kirkpatrick, the Player of the Year in the OCC-Cardinal Division, had played on three consecutive OCC champions, including this season when the Warriors went unbeaten in league play. The 10-0 league mark helped the Warriors earn the fifth seed in the tournament, but they needed to get past fourth-seeded Gahanna to advance to a regional final for the first time. “We fought really hard and every set was close, but in a game like that it comes down to who has the fewest errors and it was them,” Kirkpatrick said. “Still, we don’t have any regrets about the season.” Gahanna needed four games (25-21, 26-28, 25-22, 25-21) to eliminate North in a regional semifinal on May 18 and end the Warriors’ season at 16-4 overall. The Lions, who lost to topseeded Hilliard Darby in a regional final on May 21, also handed North its first loss of the regular season. “They found some of our weaknesses,” coach Vicki Phillips said. “I think our confidence got down at times. We knew it was going to be a challenge, but I thought we could get through it. We talked about getting to a regional final at the beginning of the season.” North advanced to a regional semifinal with a 23-25, 25-16, 25-17, 25-17 victory over Delaware on May 14. North won the OCC-Cardinal ahead of Olentangy Liberty (8-2), Westerville Central (6-4),

Continued from page D1 at Hamilton Township. The Wildcats finished first in 49.53. South’s 800 (second, 1:44.63) and 1,600 (third, 4:10.6) relays also qualified for regional, along with Tara Thompson in the 400 (third, 1:02.73) and Lizzie Gauen in the 300 hurdles (fourth, 47.17). South finished seventh (53.5) behind first-place Davidson (110). “Things went very well,” girls coach Jim Gaul said. “Ninetyfive percent of the girls ran their best times of the season, and we finished in the top half of the district. We had a runner in every event final, which was really nice and gave us a chance to compete for regional spots. Everyone of the girls that qualified to the regional has a chance to make it to the state meet. We are happy and excited for our kids.” The boys team finished 10th (37) in the district 2 meet behind first-place Davidson (109). Finishing third for the Wildcats were Ray Ball in the shot put (49 feet, 4 1/4 inches) and Kelly Carter with a personalbest effort in the 400 (50.44). The 400 (43.77) and 1,600 (3:27.93) relays each finished fourth to earn regional berths. “I am extremely excited for the opportunity several of our young men have to compete at the regional championships at Pickerington North this week,” boys coach Jimmy Gaul said.

bourne 25-23, 25-8, 25-15 the same day to finish 8-12 overall. Despite its loss in a regional semifinal, Phillips was pleased with North’s season. “It was the best finish ever for our program,” said Phillips, who received the Coaches Achievement award for the East Region. “I told the boys not to hang their heads because they had a great season. No one can take those league championships.” Kirkpatrick and junior Evan McCoy earned second-team allregion honors for North. Senior Christian Bruce was honorable mention for North along with Central senior Ryan Willis and South junior Tyler Ott. Those earning first-team allleague selections were Kirkpatrick, McCoy, Willis and Ott. Bruce, North senior Maxx Barr, Central senior Alex Ferrara and South sophomore Adam Bielby were named to the second team. Three others were selected as honorable mention in Central senior Christian Letizia, South senior Logan Michel and North sophomore Drew Hollobaugh.

The bond within the Westerville Central High School tennis program was evident during the Division I district tournament May 20 at Hilliard Davidson. Moments after junior Luke Buchanan lost his first-round match to Upper Arlington’s Jeffrey Melvin 6-4, 6-3, Buchanan’s teammates embraced him to congratulate him on his season. “What makes it fun is these kids really like each other,” coach Brian Arnett said. “They want each other to do well. That’s always been a big theme of our program is the importance of a team even though it’s an individual sport. Kids many years ago bought into that, so that’s been a tradition in our program that kids passed down from upperclassmen to underclassmen.” Buchanan, the program’s first district qualifier in singles, finished the season at 20-6. Buchanan won the first game in each set, but Miller rallied both times. “There’s no regrets,” Buchanan said. “I played my heart out. I did my best. I played pretty well. I was a little flat on a couple things, but for the most part I got beat. I didn’t lose my way off the court.” Buchanan finished second in the sectional tournament that concluded May 14 at Pickerington Central and third in the OCC-Cardinal Division tournament that concluded May 10 at Olentangy. “It’s disappointing because obviously we really wanted to get Luke to the state tournament,” Arnett said. “He had a great season and he’s not done yet. The one thing I don’t worry about with him is whether he’s going to want it bad enough. He will work harder than anybody out there to get back here again, so that’s what makes it fun.” The Warhawks were third in the league tournament with 39 points and had a 4-3 league record

Koleske played third singles. Key players expected back include junior Blake Brewer, who played second singles, sophomore Chad Strahine and freshman Jimmy Evans, who played second doubles, and junior Steve Smith. A highlight of the season was beating South 3-2 on May 6. North’s other OCC-Cardinal wins were over Olentangy 4-1, which was played May 6 following the finish of the suspended match with South, and over Marysville 3-2 on April 26. “I’m real happy with how things went this season,” Simmons said. “We made some good improvement. There are some people that surprised me. They played a lot better than I had expected them to do this year, which has given me a lot of encouragement for next year.” •South finished 8-10 overall. The Wildcats’ OCC-Cardinal wins were over Marysville 3-2 on April 14 and Olentangy 4-1 on April 26. Senior James Petit played first singles most of the season, but teamed with junior Alex Potts to play doubles at sectional. Potts also played singles most of the season. Freshman David Hayman reached the district-qualifying round at sectional but lost to Athens’Alexander Ritter-Jenkins 6-2, 6-0. Petit is the team’s lone senior. Coach John Fill’s team this season also featured junior Logan Geyer, sophomore Daniel Calvert and freshmen Ian Liao, Ross Larkins and Ben Potts. “We’re just a really young team,” Fill said. “We played mainly four freshmen and one sophomore all season long. I was afraid we might not win more than a couple matches all year. We lost five seniors (last season) and I thought this would be a real growing year, which it was, but we did better than I thought. We really improved.”

Below are the regional qualifiers for the Central, North and South track & field teams with district event, place and time/distance/height: CENTRAL BOYS — Channing Doermann: 200 (second, 22.44); Charlie Moushey: pole vault (first, 14-3); Davon Reed: 100 (first, 11.33); 800 relay: Dominique Cook, Doermann, Reed and Dillon Seckman (third, 1:30.1.)

“They have been diligent in their preparation and training all season and to be one step away from competing at the highest level of track and field in Ohio is going to be a tremendous experience for them.” •The North boys (52) and girls (45) each finished seventh in the district 1 meet.

North girls team still on top in Westerville By JEREMY STEWART

At a glance

ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Although the Westerville North High School girls lacrosse team had its first losing season since 2007, it still owned bragging rights in Westerville. North finished 3-10 overall and 3-2 in the OCC-Central Division. Two of its three wins came against the other Westerville teams. The Warriors still haven’t lost to Central or South since forming their program in 2006. “Remaining undefeated against the other Westerville schools this year was such a great accomplishment, especially for the senior class,” coach Abby Breneman said. “To remain on top was a big part of the year. Hopefully we can keep the undefeated streak going for next year against the two schools.” North beat Central 14-9 on April 28, three days after earning the season’s first win, a 108 win over Delaware. On May 5, the Warriors defeated South 17-15. North’s season ended with a 24-14 loss to Perrysburg in the first round of the Division I North/Central Region tournament. The Warriors are losing six seniors in attackers Katie Antle, Keama Garrett and Taylor Hurl, midfielder Makenzie Vail and defenders Anna Lortz and Nicole McCandlish. Junior Emily Chanak is expected to be one of the Warriors’ top offensive players next year after missing this season with an injury. Others expected to play key roles next year are junior midfielder Kristen Hannaford, sophomore midfielders Megan Kileske and Katy Williams, sophomore defenders Ashley Legin, Rachel Jantzen and Hayley Loy and sophomore goalkeeper Kelsey Kilbane. Also expected back are sophomores Tricia Gerber, Miranda Goddard, Rachel Jantzen, Megan Koleski and Calley Nelson and freshman Nia Matsumoto. Garrett and Hurl were named first-team all-OCC-Central. Vail and Williams were second-team

The season ended two days later when the Wildcats lost to Cleveland Height 9-6 in a first-

round game. South finished 5-12 overall. “Advancing in the state tournament was a great success for South’s program because we had the privilege to play the No. 1 team in the state, Cleveland Heights,” coach Allison Neff said. “Playing against a team of that caliber was a real opportunity for us to experience what it takes to be No. 1 in the state and how to adapt to such a successful program. I was very proud of our girls in the tournament this year.” South, which beat Central 149 on April 14, improved by three wins over last season.

The Wildcats lose two seniors in Tori Fitzmartin (first-team all-league and honorable mention all-district) and Devin Woods.

DeSales Roundup

Baseball, softball teams win district titles By JEREMY STEWART ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Amanda Herron of the DeSales High School softball team is heading to Eastern Michigan next season with a reputation as a line-drive hitter, but in a Division II district final against Hilliard Bradley she showed she also can hit for power. Herron’s two-run home run, her second of the season, is all DeSales needed to win a second consecutive district championship as the top-seeded Stallions defeated Hilliard Bradley 2-0 at Pickerington Central on May 20. “We knew it was going to come down to one play like that,” said coach Julie Barber, whose team was 24-3 before playing New Concord John Glenn in a regional semifinal on May 25. “Both teams were on their games. It’s a shame it was a district final.” The batter before Herron, Courtney Somers, doubled just beyond the reach of Bradley’s center fielder with two outs. “I thought, finally, they made a mistake,” said Herron, who was instructed to crowd the plate to prevent Bradley pitcher Kellie Roudabush from effectively using her outside pitches. DeSales defeated Granville 3-2 to win a district title last year. In 2008, DeSales lost to Canal Winchester 6-4 in a district final.

Rowing

Area teams fare well in two competitions By JARROD ULREY ThisWeek Community Newspapers

There was more good news than better weather for the three central Ohio rowing programs that competed May 21-22. The Westerville high school club team advanced four boats from the Midwest Junior championships on Lake Harsha in Batavia to the US Rowing Youth Nationals on June 10-12 in Oak Ridge, Tenn. Upper Arlington qualified four boats from the Midwest Scholastic championships in Oak Ridge for the SRAA national regatta for high school programs that will be held Saturday and Sunday, May 27-28, in Camden, N.J. The Dublin crew team didn’t advance any boats from the Midwest Junior meet but had several boats make grand finals. The top three finishers in each race at both the Midwest Junior and Midwest Scholastic regattas advanced to nationals. •After what it deemed a disappointing finish in the Governor’s Cup on April 30, Westerville left the Midwest

Junior championships pleased with what boats still were competing. The girls first varsity 8 boat, which features Tatiana Lundstrom in the stroke seat, finished second (6 minutes, 54.46) and the girls lightweight 8 with Kaitlyn Cantrell in the stroke seat took third (7:16.89). Hailey Ellis recently joined the first varsity 8 in place of junior Lindsey Brown, who battled strep throat for much of the spring. Ellis is a senior at New Albany who will row for Marietta College. “It was a fairly recent turning point for the girls,” coach Trish Chase said. “We’ve added a new person to the boat and it was almost like we turned on a switch. They didn’t realize their full potential. They pulled a 6:54, which was right where we want to be.” The lightweight 8 (6:08.32) and the first varsity 4 (6:56.17) each placed second for the boys team.

The Bears elected to go to the Midwest Scholastic regatta for high schools, where the top three finishers moved on to SRAA nationals.

According to coach Andy Wimmer, the girls team finished third of 22 teams that scored at Midwest Scholastic. “From a points perspective, third place isn’t too shabby,” Wimmer said. “We had a lot of boats in grand finals. I was pretty impressed with the girls having to go from 50 degrees and raining to 90 degrees and humid.” •The season came to an end last weekend for the Dublin boys and girls teams, but not without a few performances that pleased coaches Gina and Jared Crooks. For the girls, the first varsity 8 (sixth, 7:16.46), the first varsity 4 (seventh, 7:59.87), the second varsity 8 (fourth, 7:21.28) and the lightweight 4 (fifth, 8:20.32) all were among the boats that advanced to grand finals. The

nings, allowing four hits. He struck out six and walked four. In a 4-2, nine-inning victory over Pickerington Central in a district semifinal May 20 at Delaware, Pollock won the game with a two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth. “It was a very timely hit, very lucky,” Pollock said. “It wasn’t just one person, though. Pitching kept us in the whole game.” Simmerman opened the scoring with a two-run homer in the first. Junior Connor Sitz pitched a complete game, allowing one earned run on three hits. He struck out 11 and walked one. “I love this team,” Sitz said. “All the guys together, this is a real special senior class. We have something special going, so we want to make sure that we don’t end the year, and if we do, we want to make sure we end it on a good note. And we’re definitely on that road right now.” •South coach Tim Bates points to a dedicated senior class for keeping his team upbeat during a 6-15 season. Bates said that because of the bad weather this spring, the Wildcats never were able to get into a rhythm. South lost six of its first seven games. “I was disappointed for the seniors with how the season went, not only with our win-loss

The Wildcats’ OCC-Cardinal wins came against Jerome (6-1 on April 15), Marysville (7-6 on April 18) and North (12-11 in eight innings on April 30). Josh Llaneza had a 20-game hitting streak and batted a teamhigh .448, followed by Ben Williams (.377), Joe Stiltner (.367) and Matt Stiltner (.318). Joe Stiltner led the team in home runs with five and had 18 RBI. Llaneza had a team-high 20 RBI. Llaneza was first-team allOCC-Cardinal and honorable mention all-district. Williams was second-team, Joe Stiltner was special mention and Matt Stiltner was honorable mention all-league. Bates said junior Pat Triacheff and sophomore Jake Robinson emerged as the top two pitchers on the team. Bates also expects contributions next season from juniors Forrest Dill (OF/3B) and Jayson Perkins (OF) and freshman Tim Bates (P/SS), the coach’s son.

Financial finesse

Be prepared by getting preapproved 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 preapproved. 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 preapproved. 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 prop-

erty 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 reBRIAN ceive a mortgage. Buyers who get pre-approved know BURSTEIN exactly which financial guidelines they are working within. The preapproved buyer has the 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 614932-5473 or Brian.Burstein@53.com.

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.

Other tobacco products are candy-flavored, cheap and deadly. Will you protect me from them?

Non-cigaree forms of tobacco come in candy avors and bright-colored packaging. And because of a loophole, their tax is less than half that of cigarees. No wonder the use of these products is growing among kids. By closing the gap between these two taxes and restoring funding for tobacco prevenon and cessaon programs, we’ll save our kids from addicon, disease, and death.

Will Ohio’s lawmakers help our kids? Call Governor Kasich’s office at (614) 466-3555 and the Ohio Legislature at (800) 282-0253. Tell your elected officials to stand up for Ohio’s kids.

Close the tax gap and fund prevention.
