Licking Heights superintendent

Tucker chosen for top job in Worthington By CANDY BROOKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers Thomas Tucker has been named superintendent of Worthington schools. Tucker, currently superintendent of the Licking Heights Local School District, will begin in August. He succeeds Melissa Conrath, who is retiring after five years with the district. The Worthington school board plans

to approve a contract for Tucker during a meeting set for 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 1. Details of his contract have not been finalized, and no salary has been announced. His current salary is $120,000. His expected salary is $160,000, according to his application. Tucker has been superintendent of Licking Heights for three years. During that time, the district received its

first “excellent” designation on Ohio’s report card. Licking Heights is a district of 3,287 students in western Licking County. He has 21 years experience in public education in Kansas and Ohio. Prior to Licking Heights, he was an administrator with Hilliard City Schools. He was born and raised in northeastern Arkansas and received his B.A. in English education from Philander

Smith College. He also has an M.A. and a Ph.D. from Ohio State University. His wife, Janae, teaches elementary school in Dublin. Twenty-one candidates had applied for the Worthington position. “Throughout his career, Dr. Tucker has consistently demonstrated the leadership skills and vision necessary to take organizations to the next level,”

Worthington board president Marc Schare said in a prepared statement. “Under Dr. Tucker’s leadership and in conjunction with Worthington’s already strong leadership team, superb teaching staff and caring and talented support staff, we are excited by the opportunities the future will bring to Worthington students.” Tucker couldn’t be reached for comment by ThisWeek’s press deadline.

Pataskala Elementary School physical education teacher Suzanne Hayes shows off one of the chairs up for auction in the school gymnasium at the Pataskala community picnic and art auction May 26. Students painted 15 chairs from the public library. They were auctioned off to raise money for the historic Sterling Theater in downtown Pataskala. The auction netted $2,040.

Sewer-service expansion

Commissioners oppose Pataskala’s plans By MICHAEL J. MAURER ThisWeek Community Newspapers The Licking County commissioners formally notified Pataskala by letter May 17 that they object to the city’s plans to expand its sewerservice area under an EPA-approved “208 plan,” in reference to the federal law that allows the Ohio EPA to

designate sewer-service providers in a geographic area. Following a utility study performed in 2010 by W.E. Stilson Consulting, engineers for the city, Pataskala officials decided they would promote the city’s utility service to expand its service area, allowing existing capital costs to be spread over a larger customer base.

The commssioners’letter states that the commissioners will pursue their objections with the EPA and asks that Pataskala limit its service to its corporate boundaries. County commissioner Tim Bubb said the commissioners see the 208 plan as a way to avoid wasteful duSee COMMISSIONERS, page A2

The Licking Heights school board held a special meeting May 24 to correct procedural mistakes in its regular March 17 meeting regarding the retirement and rehiring of a custodian and the district building and grounds superintendent. The board had accepted resignation letters from Allen Rogers, director of facilities management, and Ronald Nutter, custodian, but had not complied with a public notice and public hearing requirement required under Ohio law. Treasurer Jennifer Vanover said that the school had been advised that it should hold a public hearing on the moves. Vanover said the public hearing would be held at the regular board meeting in July and then a special meeting will be held in August to complete the rehiring process. Vanover said Ohio law provides an opportunity for the public to comment on situations where employees give formal notice of retirement, triggering pension benefits, but also continue at the same job, earning salary in addition to pension payments. “It’s because people are not thrilled with the whole retire-rehire scenario,” Vanover said. “It allows the public the ability to (voice objections).” Board members said they mostly supported the idea of retire-rehire but recognized the public view was often different. “Let me paint a picture for you: What happens if we get to public hearing and we get a huge outcry of complaints?” said board member Richard Wand. Superintendent Thomas Tucker said the policy was a good one. “That’s OK, but at the end of the day, I advise the board to accept or continue with the retire-rehire policy,” Tucker said. “This just gives an opportunity to come and speak and express their opinions.

Granville, Licking Valley, Lakewood

Some county districts ranked in top 5 percent in statewide study By MICHAEL J. MAURER ThisWeek Community Newspapers Three Licking County school districts are among 135 statewide who have been recognized for superior operational performance in non-classroom functions, according to a study released this week by Ohio Education Matters, a subsidiary of the KnowledgeWorks Foundation.

The Granville, Licking Valley and Lakewood school districts were identified in the study. Consultant Michael Harlow said KnowledgeWorks had been approached last year by the Ohio Department of Education to explore ways in which the state could save money spent on schools. The study released last week concluded that the state could save $1.4

billion annually if all districts were to adopt the practices of the top 5 percent of schools in five categories, including central office administration, school administration, maintenance, transportation and food services. “They asked us what we thought about this and we said, ‘Let’s focus on operational spending, identifying efficiencies on all this stuff that happens

outside the classroom,’” Harlow said. “If districts could match their spending to benchmark districts, the state would save $1.4 billion.” The most savings, $618 million, would come from maintenance, followed by $248 million in central office administration, $240 million in school building administration, $138 million in food service and $126 mil-

Commissioners oppose Pataskala’s sewer-service plans Continued from page A1 plicate infrastructure. “We view this as an overreach by Pataskala,” Bubb said. “This 208 is a planning document in every county so you don’t have redundancy. At a time when we are all struggling to pay for infrastructure and government service, one thing you don’t need in water and sewer is laying lines on top of lines.” Bubb cited the construction of a second Reynoldsburg high school on Summit Road as an example of one entity already having collection lines installed

and a second entity installing another set of lines. “They spent a lot of money and put a lot of infrastructure in the ground but because the 208 plans conflicted and the service areas were on top of each other, essentially it allowed Reynoldsburg and Reynoldsburg schools to come in right on top of them with additional infrastructure and serve that area,” Bubb said. “EPA allowed that to happen but our position is that is crazy. It is very expensive to put sewer and water infrastructure in the ground. In areas where that investment has been made and the service exists,

creating confusion and overlap just does not seem in the interest of good government.” The millions of dollars spent on collection systems is paid for in rate increases to sewer system customers. “Guess who pays the debt? People who are the customers do, through rates and debt service,” Bubb said. Pataskala Mayor Steve Butcher made a distinction between the capacity to provide service, which, he said, was a legitimate planning question, from a decision to actually provide service. “All we are being asked is, if

there were service provided there, do we have the capacity to provide service?” Butcher said. “The answer is obviously yes, we do have the ability, if there were a need. If we were being asked today, would we provide service, the answer would be no, because we are not prepared today. In certain areas, such as the (state Route) 161 corridor, we might say yes, we are prepared to provide service, but

we would need to debate that. “We’re only answering the question, do we have the ability to provide it? We don’t know that we are even interested in providing it to most of the areas we are talking about. That’s not the question that was asked.” Bubb said the commissioners would oppose adding overlapping access in the 208 planning area.

“They don’t have the plant or infrastructure in place to do that,” Bubb said. “They’re taking advantage of the 208 process to just sort of cast a big wide net. It does not make sense. “We are absolutely opposed to EPA even considering altering the 208 plan to give Pataskala some overreaching stretch of duplicate service area. We’re going to aggressively oppose that.”

Summer movie series to raise funds for renovation By MICHAEL J. MAURER ThisWeek Community Newspapers The Sterling Theater has announced its first summer movie series. The Pataskala theater will host one movie each month, in conjunction with the weekly farmers market, to provide weekend entertainment and raise funds for continuing renovation of the historic building. “We are hoping that people will be downtown anyway because of the farmers market,” said Nancy Butcher, owner of the Nutcracker Family restaurant, which is hosting and sponsoring the first movie, “Charlotte’s Web.” The premiere showing will be June 10 and will include outdoor activities beginning at 5 p.m., including a petting zoo, carnival games and pony rides. Butcher said movies also would be screened in July and August and possibly September. About 350 tickets are available at a cost of $5 each. The Nutcracker’s Steve Butcher said it has taken some work to be able to license movies for public showing. “In order to show a movie, you have to have a license and if you are a church or a school or a college, you can get these movies and show them for free or for a very low rental cost,” Butcher said. “If you actually have a theater, you have to have a different license and it is much more expensive. “Some movies you have to get through the studio directly. There are some movies that are really difficult to get. Disney is a great example. You can show a Disney movie out on the lawn during the summer months and not charge admission, but you can’t get a license to show it indoors at any time.

A great gift to commemorate a special achievement or your newsmaker!

“Warner Brothers is another one. It’s a 20-page contract. Our hope in the future is we can expand to ‘The Wizard of Oz,’ ‘Gone with the Wind,’ all those old Warner Brothers movies. But until you have a license, you can’t even decide if you can afford to show the movies.” The theater screened “It’s a Wonderful Life” in the fall and on the Friday showing, it was obligated to pay 50 percent of ticket receipts. However, at the less-attended Saturday showing, it had to pay a flat fee. “It is whatever is higher,” Butcher said. By having businesses sponsor the movie showing by paying the licensing fee, all ticket proceeds can be used toward theater operations and renovation, Butcher said. New audio equipment is being installed and new window blinds and professional repainting are all planned for the summer, at a cost exceeding $20,000. Funds also are being raised for new bathrooms and various repairs and upgrades, including “tuckpointing,” a term that refers to repairing mortar joints in masonry, and air conditioning and ventilation. The theater is also preparing an engineering study that will help control mandatory building upgrade costs, allowing the historic theater to adopt less costly alternatives to modern building code requirements. The theater was built and used as a city building, but it has had its ups and downs. “It has always been a city building since it was built as Pataskala Town Hall in 1916,” said Martha Tykodi, president of the West Licking Historical Society. “In my time growing up, in the 1930s and 1940s, it was the scene of movies every weekend, opened to the whole community and priced very cheaply.” www.ThisWeekNews.com

STATEWIDE STUDY Continued from page A1 “We’re comparing high-income districts to highincome districts and rural districts to rural districts. We are comparing like to like across the state.” Harlow said the study also took into account various quality factors to make sure that the study revealed best value. “We’ve identified the most effective districts, which is not the same as the lowest cost,” Harlow said. “We have quality indicators in each of the categories. In food service, you could serve all the students beans but it would not be effective. You would not get participation and students would not get a quality meal.” The study revealed a wide range of costs for similar quality service. “Some peer districts are spending two and three times as much,” Harlow said. “You’re talking about some districts spending three times as much for a meal.”

Jay Gault, superintendent of Lakewood schools, said changes to bring operations into cash balance are difficult. “Six years ago, our food service was in the red and the general fund was subsidizing them to about $50,000,” Gault said. “We used technology called ‘point of sale’ that has increased our efficiency and then we looked at how we were staffing. We made cuts and restructured, and now we operate in the black.” Granville was recognized for maintenance costs of $1,684 per student, compared to districts spending as much as $4,472 per student in its peer group. Also, Granville’s building administration costs are $331 per student, compared to $980 per student in its peer group. Licking Valley and Lakewood were both recognized for food service, spending $2.41 per meal and $1.92 per meal, respectively, compared to as much as $5.88 per meal at peer schools.

RETIRE-REHIRE Continued from page A1 That is OK, but it should not sway the board’s vote to not allow someone to retire and rehire. It’s just part of the democratic process.” Board member Chuck Seeright said the board should consider public response. “We’ve always been pretty cognizant of public opinion,” Seeright said. “How do we feel about a big public outcry? I’m all for rehiring Allen. I don’t know the other gentleman but it’s recommended we do it. How do we feel if we have 50 people out there screaming and yelling at us at the next public meeting about retire-rehire and doubledipping?” Board president Matt Satterwhite said the board would consider the circumstances at the time. “From what I know right now, I have no objection but there is a process here, and if a thousand people show up and there are facts we don’t know, I can’t say it’s definite,” Satterwhite said. “We didn’t know we had to do this process until it was done. I think people have trouble separating the retirement system from

what the district pays. They just see compensation overall and they don’t understand it’s two completely different systems.” Vanover said the notice and hearing requirements apply only to people being rehired in the same job from which they are retiring and not from similar situations where the retiring person goes to a different employer. “But that’s the situation that

90 percent of the public that has an issue with it, will have an issue with,” Wand said. “When you go to a different job at a different district, nobody’s going to care. Everyone understands that. It’s no different than retiring from the military and getting a different job. When you retire from one job and take the very same job the next day, that’s when the public is going to care.”

Watkins Memorial Roundup

Brown returns to state in high jump By KURTIS ADAMS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Watkins Memorial High School track and field standout Kayla Brown’s career will end in the Division I state meet. The senior, a four-year varsity contributor, qualified for state in the girls high jump for the second time and will compete on Saturday, June 4, at Ohio State. Afterward, Brown said she will choose between Mount Union and Walsh and then settle into college life as a non-athlete. She intends to study physical therapy, an interest sparked when she was rehabilitating a knee injury as a freshman cheerleader. “I guess this’ll be it,” Brown said of the state meet, which opens Friday, June 3. “It’s kind of sad, but it’s time to move on.” Brown advanced to state by placing fourth with a height of 5 feet, 1 inch during the regional meet May 25 at Pickerington North. She was a regional participant in three other individual events, including the long jump, but did not qualify for the May 27 finals in the 100- and 300-meter hurdles. “I already missed (qualifying for state) in the 100 hurdles so I felt I needed to bounce back,” Brown said after the high-jump competition, which was won by Dublin Coffman’s Isolde Hannan (5-3) as Mount Vernon’s Jessica Roden (second, 5-2) and Groveport’s Jamie Gadrim (third, 5-1) also advanced. “I did OK; good enough to make it out, anyway. That’s all I wanted.” Brown was the district 2 runner-up in the high jump (5-0) and long jump (15-10 1/2), and she was fourth in the 100 hurdles (15.96 seconds) and 300 hurdles (46.73) at Hilliard Bradley to help the Warriors (70 points) to a second-place finish behind Hilliard Davidson (109) on May 21. They captured 12 individual regional berths overall, which included Morgan Reichert’s district championships in the

Watkins Memorial’s Le’Trel Taylor takes off in a heat of the 400 meters during the Division I regional track and field meet May 25 at Pickerington North. Taylor had the 10th-best time (50.79) as Mifflin’s Jorell Davis (50.7) earned the final qualifying spot for the final, which was May 27.

1,600 (5:14.54) and 3,200 (11:40.51), Logan Visnick’s in the discus (1113) and Rachel Arnott’s in the pole vault (10-6). The top four in each event at district advanced to regional, where the top four in each event advanced to state.

Also advancing to regional were Taylor Amrine in the pole vault (third, 10-0), Mara White in the 1,600 (second, 5:14.57), Visnick in the shot put (third, 33-8) and Mallory Warrington in the shot put (second, 34-10 3/4). Brown is a four-time regional qualifier in the high jump and her four re-

gional berths this spring pushed her career total to 10, including seven in the past two years. In 2009, she placed 16th at state in the high jump (5-0) and also competed in the 100 hurdles. Brown won the 100 hurdles (15.58) when the Warriors captured a third consecutive OCC-Capital Division

title at Bradley on May 14. She swept the hurdles at the league meet in 2010. “It’s been a lot of fun,” she said. “I remember my first time (at state), it was nerve-wracking. Hopefully, it’ll be different this time.” See WARRIORS, page B2

Seniors Ty Stallings (CF) and Graham Jonker (1B) made second-team and honorable mention allleague, respectively. Much of the team’s infield will return along with junior pitcher Mick Stakely, who posted a 7-1 record was first-team all-league. Sophomores Ronnie Dawson (2B), Jake Foley (SS) and Andrew Bailey (3B) and junior Zak Scott (C) are expected back, as are juniors Zack Dunbrack (OF)

The Licking County Athletics baseball program is undergoing a transformation under first-year coach Adam Arcuri. Two additional age groups have been added to increase the number of teams to four. An ambitious tournament schedule has been lined up, too, and the website (lcathleticsbaseball.com) has been enhanced. “It’s the new blood,” said former coach Rick Houston, who is taking his second summer off in 31 years. Arcuri, who is Houston’s sonin-law, said changes are necessary now that Newark no longer is playing host to the Babe Ruth 16-18 years old World Series. Subsequently, the A’s are losing players to other summer programs. This year’s team will feature nobody from Division IV district-champion Newark Catholic, for example. The new teams are the 13and-under Athletics, who will be coached by Bob Jurden, and

The fact that the Licking Heights High School baseball team was upset early in the Division II district tournament served as a lesson. “You can lose a game in the first inning just as you can in the seventh,” coach Jeff Boyer said of a 4-2 loss to Bexley in a second-round game May 12 in which the Lions scored three runs in their first at-bat. “If there’s one thing we learned, it’s that.” The seventh-seeded Hornets, who had a first-round bye, defeated Bexley 3-2 in their second regular-season game on March 29. They finished 16-5 overall, but the final week of the season did have its moments. The Hornets topped eventual Division III district-champion Heath 10-5 on May 10 and then Harvest Prep 10-0 in six innings the following day to win the outright MSL-Cardinal Division title, their first league championship since 1989. They went 12-2 in

The 2007 squad went 16-8 while advancing to a regional final. “It’s not just about what they’ve done on the field,” coach Don Schone said of his seniors. “It’s about the way they jelled as a team and the way they accepted the younger kids. They showed the kind of leadership you love to have.” Much of the team’s infield is expected to return in juniors Reno Reda (1B) and Steve Huber (3B) and sophomore Jordan Miller (2B).

want to keep them,” said Arcuri, 27, an Olmsted Falls High School graduate and former Thomas Worthington assistant. “We don’t want them to have any reason to go someplace else to play baseball.” “And we’d like to keep expanding if possible. We’re looking to add maybe two more age groups next year.” Another significant change is that individuals who already have played one college season no longer are eligible to play for the Athletics, whose 15-man roster includes players representing seven area high schools. The team’s three collegebound seniors are Heath’s Ethan Fleming (Thomas More) and Nate Hunt (Muskingum) and Licking Heights’ Josh Hoar (Tiffin). The other graduating seniors are Heath’s Cole Benner and Newark’s Tyler King. “We want to do more traveling to age-specific tournaments, and in some of those the college kids would be too old,” Arcuri said. “We’re definitely going to be younger (with nine juniors and one sophomore) and we want to give those kids (collegerecruiting) exposure.” Arcuri has put six tournaments on the slate, the first of which is the Cobras Classic on June 10-12 in Pickerington. The others include the Phoenix Wooden-Bat Tournament on July 2326 in Worthington and the MidAtlantic Championships on July 28-31 in Pittsburgh. The A’s also will participate in the Diamond Stars Classic on June 16-19 in Kent, the Lancaster American Legion Post 11 Classic on June

when we needed a big hit, that’s all. We’ll learn from the way it ended and move forward. We have quite a bit coming back next year, so there’s a lot to look forward to.” •Kayla Velasquez’s bid to advance to the Division II state track and field meet ended in the Dayton regional on May 26 when the junior placed seventh (106 feet, 7 inches) in the girls discus. Sherrard Pollard finished 15th (18-8 3/4) in the boys long jump and also failed to qualify. The boys 400-meter relay competed in the finals on May 28. The top four finishers in each event advanced to the state meet Friday and Sat-

30-July 4 and the Post 275 Classic on July 7-10 in Adrian, Mich. Arcuri, who assisted Houston the past two years, has retained assistant coaches Mike Saalfield and Roy Wisner. •ANOTHER CHANGE — The Licking County Settlers, who open play in the wooden-bat Great Lakes Summer Collegiate League on June 10 at the Xenia Scouts, have named Devin McIntosh as their new coach. He replaces Brian Meyer, who led the Settlers to a program-best 29-11 record and the league’s regularseason title last summer. McIntosh, an Arlington, Texas, native who also is in his first season at Richland College

in Dallas, is a former pitching coach at both Buffalo and Niagara University. In other changes, the GLSCL has split into two five-team divisions for this season. The Settlers will play in the North Division with the Grand Lake Mariners, Lake Erie Monarchs, Lima Locos and Stark County Terriers. The South Division will feature the Cincinnati Steam, Xenia, Southern Ohio Copperheads, Lexington Hustlers and the Hamilton Joes, who defeated Licking County in last year’s championship playoff series. kadams@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com

Financial finesse

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 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 property and confirmation the buyer will have what-

ever 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-apBRIAN proved know exactly which financial guidelines they are BURSTEIN working within. The pre-approved 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 answer your questions. Please feel free to contact him at 614-932-5473 or Brian.Burstein@53.com.
