Commission OGT scores up in all subjects OKs St. Ann’s parking garage By JENNIFER NESBITT

ThisWeek Community Newspapers

By JENNIFER NESBITT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Mount Carmel St. Ann’s Hospital can move forward with the construction of a three-tier parking garage and with the expansion of its energy plant and kitchen and dining areas. The parking and building expansions, which will precede a remodel of the hospital that will include reorienting the entrance toward Schrock Road and constructing a cardiology tower, were approved by the Westerville Planning Commission May 25. The parking garage will be built at the southeast end of the hospital. Due to the grade of the site, visitors entering from Cleveland Avenue will see only the top deck of the parking garage, which will be even with the rest of the hospital’s parking. The lower levels will be visible from its other three sides, and hospital employees will access those levels from Copeland Mill Road, which runs along the hospital property’s southern border. The parking garage will mirror the architecture of St. Ann’s main building, with brick construction, white-trimmed windows and stair towers that are designed to look like the hospital’s glass towers. “Staff is comfortable in the overall architecture. It certainly is more nuanced than a typical parking garage,” Westerville senior planner Bassem Bitar told the planning commission. While the parking garage and expansions were unanimously approved, planning commission members expressed concerns about the garage transferring traffic from the main traffic entrance to St. Ann’s on Cleveland Avenue to Copeland Mill Road and about a lack of landscaping on the top level of the See ST.

In preliminary results released to the Westerville City School District, students improved their performance in all areas of the Ohio Graduation Test taken in March. The biggest improvement came in writing scores, where 93.9 percent of students were graded “proficient” or above, an increase of 3.6 percent over scores on the March 2010 test. The percentage of students passing science was up 3.5 percent, to 84.5; math was up 2 percent, to 90.6; reading was up 1.2 percent, to 92.2; and social studies saw the smallest increase, of 0.2 percent, to 90.9 percent. The totals will not be official until the city receives its state report card from the Ohio

Department of Education in August. The district usually sees minor changes in results between the preliminary and the official results, said Karen McClellan, district chief of academic affairs. McClellan said the district is proud of the growth it has seen on the OGT score this year, but will begin analyzing scores both at the administrative and school-building level to see what areas need to be targeted for further improvement next year. “We applaud the effort from our students and their parents and the teaching staff,” she said. “We’re proud and happy with the gains, but we know we can always improve. We have that continuous improvement model.” The district’s OGT scores have been relatively flat in recent years, McClellan said, but have stayed close to the 90th percentile.

“It’s up and down. They don’t fluctuate a lot when you’re at the 90th level of proficiency. They fluctuate some,” she said. However, this year’s reading, math and social studies scores were the highest in the last five years, the writing score was the secondhighest, and the science score was the thirdhighest, district communications director Greg Viebranz said. McClellan said she credits the high scores to the district’s focus on intervention and professional development. When Ohio Graduation Test scores are received, the district analyses them to see which areas it should focus on during professional development days; which subgroups of students, such as special education students or See OGT SCORES, page A2

District gears for summer projects By JENNIFER NESBITT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

This summer, Westerville North and Westerville South high schools will get new artificial turf in their stadiums, South will get a new track, Heritage Middle School will get new gym bleachers and the storm sewer lines at Emerson Magnet School will be replaced. Those are just some of the capital improvement projects planned to take place at Westerville City Schools’ 27 locations this summer.


The Westerville Board of Education approved bids May 23 for $1.32 million to Heiberger Paving, $112,800 to Farber Mechanical for plumbing work and $1.05 million to ProGrass LLC. That bid package will include paving repair work at all of the district’s buildings, the repair and resurfacing of the tennis courts at Genoa Middle School, replacing Westerville South High School’s running track, track maintenance at Genoa and Walnut Springs middle schools and installing artificial turf at Westerville North and

emorial Day was not conceived to be the kickoff to summer activities or as a reason to schedule a three-day weekend. It was established to recognize the nation’s military veterans who died while fighting for their country. In keeping with efforts to recognize and honor the sacrifices and service of military veterans, ThisWeek Community Media is launching Honoring Heroes, a continuing series through which we will share the stories and remembrances from and about local men and women who are either on active duty or retired from service. As part of covering their beats, our reporters often hear about and write about veterans leaving for overseas or com-

South high schools. The board also approved a $43,500 bid from Farnham Equipment Co. for the replacement of the bleachers at Heritage Middle School and a $238,900 bid from Speer Mechanical to replace the sewer lines at Emerson Magnet School. In June, the board will vote on bids for more summer projects, facilities and operations services executive director Jeff LeRose said. That will include work to convert a woodshop at Heritage Mid-

dle School to a special education classroom, work at Blendon Middle School to quiet noise from the music room to two adjacent classrooms and the addition of pavement near South High School’s stadium to accommodate more bus traffic at the transportation building, he said. The amount for those projects is not yet known, LeRose said, but even with that, the district will not come close to spending the $11.6 million in capital improvement See PROJECTS, page A2

PROJECTS School, LeRose said. That work was added after complaints arose from the Blendon Middle School staff, he said. Many of this year’s projects, such as the repaving work and resurfacing the tennis courts and tracks, are routine for the district, LeRose said. Other projects, like the storm sewer work at Emerson, were unusual jobs that were a long time coming, he said. “That building is over 100 years old, as well as the piping, and there are portions of the piping that have deteriorated to the point where there’s nothing there,” LeRose said. “Emerson has a basement and there are windows in that basement with window wells, and during these extremely heavy rains, those wells are filing up like fishbowls.” The work will be a lot for the district to accomplish before students return in August, LeRose said, especially because this summer is shorter than usual for the district. “Most of that is happening over the summer. The goal is you’re ready to go when school’s ready to start for the next school year,” he said. “This is a shorter summer for us, so this is a more aggressive schedule for us.”

OGT SCORES Continued from page A1 English-as-a-second-language students, need more attention; and on which interventions could be used more with students. “We look at it at a district level in terms of professional development, in terms of curriculum development. In the schools, they look at it in terms of intervention,” she said. “It’s done both at the district level and at the building level.” Sophomores who don’t pass the Ohio Graduation Test in March are eligible to sign up for a summer intervention course and retake the test in June, McClellan said. Viebranz said the biggest indicator of improvement for the district is the continuous improvement it has seen in its performance index score.

The performance index gives a weighted grade to each level of performance on the test, with scores from advanced and accelerated students being given the most weight and those from students who are basic or below basic the least. The higher a district’s performance index, the more students are testing at the advanced or accelerated levels. “The performance index score last year was the highest we have received since its inception (in 2001),” Viebranz said. “That’s one we keep an eye on because it’s an accurate representation of how students are performing on the tests.” Last year’s performance index score was 100.8, up from 99.9 the year before. It’s first score in 2001 was 91.2.

Continued from page A1 parking garage. David Dryden, Mount Carmel vice president of design, construction and facilities, said the hospital system is confident that the site layout and “way-finding” techniques, such as signage, will continue to bring people in from Cleveland Avenue and automatically direct them to the top tier of the garage. “We’ve studied it quite a bit. Way-finding is a huge issue with any hospital,” Dryden said. “Our intentions were never to make Copeland Mill anything more than it is today — kind of a service road for the medical office buildings.” The concerns over landscaping for the parking garage stem from the fact that the top tier is made to look like a parking lot, which carries landscaping regulations under Westerville code, but because there is no ground beneath it, traditional plantings aren’t possible. “It’s a challenge because it is a concrete decking structure,” Bitar said. He said the city staff recommended plantings on the top tier of the same nature that would be used on a “green roof” — roofs with low-maintenance gardens that are meant to trap rainwater and be more environmentally friendly. However, Dryden said the hospital system is hesitant to include any sort of vegetation on the top tier of a parking deck because they have not been able to keep plants alive on parking decks at other locations. Because the hospital is expected to go before the planning commission again in coming months for other phases of its expansion, commission members said they want to see the lack of landscaping on the parking deck addressed in some way. “It will not look like a surface parking lot if it’s just a slab of concrete,” commission member Paul Johnson said. “I will be extremely disappointed next time if it’s not there.” If vegetation is not feasible, the hospital should look for other ways to add interest to the top of the parking deck, such as lighting islands or masonry, said commission chairman Gerald Domanik. “It may not be something that’s alive, but if you can think outside the box,” Domanik said. “Give it some character.” The parking deck and expansions were approved under the conditions that landscaping for the top deck of the garage is satisfactory to the city staff, final access point alignment and detail is subject to approval by the city engineer, the landscape plan for the entire site is approved by city staff and the bike path through the site and the trees planted along it are approved by the city.

projects this year that it spent last year. That’s largely due to the fact that the five-year plan created when district voters approved a capital improvement levy in 2009 was frontloaded with projects that were important but had been put off due to financial constraints, such as roof, HVAC and building envelope repairs, LeRose said. “When the plan was approved — and in this case, $25-million of that was financed … it just gave us an opportunity to get these things done on the front end of the five-year plan,” LeRose said. “We didn’t want to delay those projects; we wanted to get those projects done as soon as the funding came in.” Not delaying work also can save the district money, LeRose said, because the costs for construction tend to rise each year. “In many ways, it’s more affordable because each year, if you consider inflation, projects are more expensive to do,” he said. All of the projects being undertaken this summer were part of the district’s five-year capital improvement plan, with the exception of the work to muffle the music room at Blendon Middle

Have You Heard? by Greg VanHorssen THE “STEALTH” HEARING INSTRUMENT

For those who prefer a hearing instrument that is completely imperceptible and surpassingly convenient, there is the 100 percent invisible extended-wear model. This exceptionally small prescription hearing instrument is placed by a professional into the wearer’s ear canal about four millimeters from the eardrum. Once in place, it is worn continuously for three to four months until it is replaced with a new one. In the meantime, wearers need not concern themselves with battery changes or poor hearing that comes with non-wear. Because they work with the ear’s anatomy to direct sound into the ear canal, extended-wear instruments provide excellent clarity. This is just one option among many for people looking for the instrument that best suits their needs. For those people who avoid wearing a hearing instrument out of concern of what others will think, today’s smaller options are both more discreet and more effective than their more noticeable predecessors. At ABSOLUTE HEARING SOLUTIONS, we offer a wide variety of hearing devices to choose from. If you or a family member are not hearing as well as you could, please call us today at 614-654-4309 to schedule a complementary hearing & speech evaluation.

Central Ohio’s prospects for job growth are promising Editor’s note: Many of ThisWeek Westerville’s readers live in the Win-Win area of Columbus. Pharmaceutical companies often are judged by their “pipeline” of future products. Their stock price could fluctuate on the value of this pipeline and the potential it has to drive future revenue. The Columbus2020! initiative also tracks its pipeline of potential projects, those competitive initiatives that could add jobs and investment in the Columbus region. A close analysis likely would warrant a “buy” recommendation if the Columbus region were selling shares of stock. The Columbus2020! initiative’s pipeline comprises companies that aren’t here yet but that are considering central Ohio for new facilities, as well as existing companies that are considering expansion locally and a host of new enterprises that are being developed through TechColumbus and at satellite entrepreneurial centers throughout the area. One thing is clear: The level of activity is

up compared to the past several years, and our prospects for the future are bright. A closer look at the KENNY new compaMCDONALD nies looking at our region shows that 58 percent of the projects are small- to medium-size operations in the advanced-manufacturing sector; 28 percent are international companies considering the United States, and a framework for headquarters and back-office projects has the potential to create hundreds of jobs. Projects are being sourced from nearly every corner of the nation, and each international mission is creating qualified projects. The region’s technology incubators and entrepreneurial centers are nearing capacity in Columbus, Dublin and New Albany, driven by market opportunities in the advanced-energy, advanced-materials, informationtechnology and medical-health-


care sectors. It is a testament to the efforts of state and local leaders that such operations exist to nurture these new enterprises that represent the future of central Ohio. As another indicator, in 2010 funding for local startups reached new heights as a record-setting 117 promising young companies received $307.56 million in innovation capital to fuel the growth of their businesses. This is a 73percent increase over 2009. TechColumbus has the entire report online at The Columbus area has to compete to win these projects, and the companies have to execute on their plans for our potential to be realized, but the market potential is there. The Columbus region has a lot to feel good about: Its future prospects for job growth and investment look great. Kenny McDonald is chief economic officer for Columbus2020!

Just thinking

Fine feelings gone after the mail came People often become depressed as they age, and I think I’m beginning to see why. Scientists no doubt are looking into this trend, and while I’m sure they’d be interested in my observations, I don’t know any of them personally. If I did, I’d shoot them an e-mail. Dear Scientists, (I’d say if I was put in touch with the right people), You want to know why people become depressed as they age? I’ll tell you why. People become depressed as they age because they start receiving mail like the tri-fold postcard I found in my mailbox the other day. “WE ARE PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE” the postcard began. You might think that sounds promising, but in my experience, truly pleasant announcements are never made in uppercase letters. Top-tier colleges don’t start acceptance letters with “WH-O-OO-O-O-A!!! YOU’VE BEEN ACCEPTED TO YALE, BRO!!!” The corporate world doesn’t bellow out important job offers like

hotdog sellers at the ball game: “YO! YOU’VE EMERGED AS OUR TOP CANDIDATE!” ProMARGO bate lawyers BARTLETT don’t announce small bequests in great big type: “LISTEN UP!!! YOUR COUSIN DIED AND LEFT YOU $50 AND 16 AMERICAN BULLDOGS!” So anyhow. My postcard began, “WE ARE PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE,” and then it went on: “You may qualify for the Funeral Advantage Program.” The Funeral Advantage Program. Meaning, I guess, not just a plain old funeral, but a funeral with advantages. Doesn’t that sound like a barrel of laughs. Never mind what I might have hoped I qualified for. A crate of Florida oranges, maybe. Membership in a joke-of-the-month club. A chance to base jump off

that bridge in West Virginia. The Funeral Advantage Program wouldn’t have been on my list. Who opens the mail thinking, “I hope some funeral advantages are in here?” I don’t even know what a funeral advantage is, beyond the obvious advantage of its being somebody else’s funeral. Well, I should say I didn’t know what they were then. Now I know that one funeral advantage, at least, will pay my family an insurance cash benefit of as much as $20,000 tax free. Or, as this enthusiastic postcard puts it, TAX FREE. Wowzer, right? Except for that one phrase: “in the event of your death.” Yes, no cash benefit for my family unless I die. This outfit might make the trade without a second thought, the way people trade two nickels for a dime, but I have a different perspective on the matter, and nothing expresses that perspective more succinctly than my own phrase, “unless I die.” Not “until I die,” you notice. “Until I die” leaves no room for luck or miracles, and who among us doesn’t leave room for those things, just in case? “Unless I die” suggests I may opt out of that directive. I haven’t decided yet. The postcard goes on: “THOUSANDS OF OHIO RESIDENTS have been accepted so far …” Is this intended to instill a feeling of urgency in those of us who haven’t signed up for funeral advantages yet? Are we supposed to think we need to hurry, lest all the spots be filled up like seats on a roller coaster? But wait! The coaster looked full, but a seat is available for me after all.

Summer reading programs take a traveling theme By JENNIFER NESBITT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Westerville Public Library patrons are being encouraged to pursue summer travel — through books — as part of the library’s summer reading programs. The program is open to people of all ages, from pre-readers through adults. Themes for this year’s program, which runs from June 9 through Aug. 6, take their inspiration from travel. For the June 9 kickoff, the library will have activities for children through grade 5 who register for the “One World, Many Stories” program. Children who sign up will receive a “passport,” in which they will log their reading hours. There will be world-themed hopscotch,

face-painting, crafts and photo opportunities in front of pyramid and Eiffel Tower backgrounds. Children age 6 through fifthgraders can log their reading hours on their “passports” or online. For their first four hours of reading, they will be awarded a maze game; for the first eight hours, a finger rocket; and for the first 12 hours, a flying disk. Program participants who log more than 12 hours will be eligible for a grand prize drawing of popular book titles for kids. For children younger than 5 who are not yet reading, the library will offer activities such as sorting shapes or toys that can be completed with the help of an adult. Children who complete seven activities will earn a watercolor page, children who complete

Weekly newspaper.

14 will receive bubble soap and children who complete 21 will receive a plastic “slinky” toy. Readers in grades 6-12 can enroll in the “You Are Here” summer reading program. Teens who read at least 15 hours will receive earbuds. For every additional hour they read beyond 15, they will qualify for gift card drawings. Teens who log more than 30 hours of reading will be entered into a drawing for an iPod Touch. Hours spent reading aloud to someone, attending library events and volunteering at the library will count. Adults can participate in the library’s “Novel Destinations” summer program, for which they can log ratings or reviews of books to qualify for weekly and grand prize drawings.

During the summer reading program, the library also will offer guest performances tied to the “One World” theme. Scheduled performances include storyteller Lyn Ford presenting “Stewpot Stories from Around the World,” the DoomTa-Ka Children’s Drum Circle, West African Dance and Drum with Sogbety Diomande and folk songs, dances and interactive instrument-making and movement with musician Joanie Calem. Artist and author Steve Harpster will visit the library and the Nalanda School of Dance will perform dances from India. Additional presentations planned for the summer include: Totally Terrific Film Nights, featuring Walt Disney movies on Tuesday evenings; Family Sum-

mer Sing-alongs on Monday and For a full list of the library’s Tuesday mornings; a nature walk summer activities, and their dates at Sharon Woods Metro Park, and and times, visit the library’s webgardening clubs for toddlers site at through age 5, for children ages 6 and older, and for children ages 8-11.

Commission dismisses apartment proposal By JENNIFER NESBITT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Westerville Planning Commission informally turned down a proposal to construct a 170-unit apartment complex at the southeast corner of County Line Road and North West Street, just west of St. Paul church. Representatives of the developer Romanelli and Hughes presented the proposal to the commission May 25 for preliminary feedback. The proposed development would be part of a land swap between the developer and St. Paul the Apostle Parish. The church owns a parcel of land one block away from the church on which it plans to build ballfields. Romanelli and Hughes wants to purchase the parcel directly to the west of St. Paul’s property and give that land to the church, in exchange for the church’s parcel farther to the west, which would have traffic access from North West Street, city planner Lisa LaMantia said.

To allow for the construction of the apartment complex, the land would have to be rezoned from rural residential to a planned neighborhood district. Under a planned neighborhood district, parcels can have a density of five units per acre, or up to eight units per acre, with certain allowances. If the parcel with St. Paul’s ballfields were included as part of the planned neighborhood district, density would be 8.88 units per acre, LaMantia said. If the apartment complex stood on its own, it would have a density of 18.5 units per acre. “As staff, we’re in favor of moving the fields closer to St. Paul’s, but we were unsure about the density,” she said. Most of the planning commission members said the density was a deal breaker and questioned the request to include the church’s ballfield property in the planned neighborhood district to lower the density. “This is plain disappointing. The density is far too high,” commission member Paul Johnson

said. “I can’t support anything that looks like this.” Commission members said the density concerns were intensified by the site’s proximity to Uptown, Otterbein University and the residential North West Street. “North West Street is a very nice residential street,” Westerville City Councilwoman Diane Fosselman said. “I don’t want to see that change.” Commission member Brian Szuch said the impact on North West Street would be too high. A proposal for such a high-density property, he said, looked like a “money grab” by the developer. Commission members agreed that when density is allowed to exceed the five units per acre allotted by a planned neighborhood district, it’s because the developer is willing to make concessions, such as giving the city greenspace, that benefits Westerville. Helping move ballfields closer to a private church does not fit that requirement, members said. “I don’t see where it’s advantageous for all of Westerville,” Johnson said.

Rec facility, day care approved By JENNIFER NESBITT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Westerville Planning Commission approved conditional use permits for a proposed recreational facility and a kindergarten enrichment program at its May 25 meeting. The recreational facility would be located in 6,875 square feet of warehouse space in a building at 175 E. Broadway Ave. that also houses an automobile garage and office space. The recreational facility is a permitted use in the building, which is zoned for industrial use, but requires a conditional use permit, city planner Jeff Buehler said. The building would house six batting cages, with nets that could be moved aside to allow for other sports, such as basketball or football, to be played on the multipurpose floor, said Todd Skipton, who is looking to open the facility. The city’s planning staff had some concerns about the site because it is older and nonconforming to code, Buehler said. The primary concerns were lack of landscaping, parking lot lighting and of a master plan for the site. The city staff’s main concern was lighting, Buehler said, because the site would serve children and would operate from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. during the weekdays. “The site is not lighted at all,” he said. “We would like to see lighting added.” Skipton said the building’s owner is willing to work with the city’s staff to install an adequate

And those who return the postcard today, the text adds, also receive a helpful booklet titled “My Final Wishes.” “Currently, you may qualify even if you have a health condition,” the postcard says.

amount of lighting. The conditional use permit was unanimously approved by the commission. The commission also approved a conditional use permit for Active Learning, a kindergarten enrichment program that would serve up to 35 children in leased space in the American Baptist Church of Westerville, 401 E. Schrock Road. The day care operation would be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays, with morning and afternoon sessions serving15 to 20 students, said city planner Lisa LaMantia. Because the program would have to use Oak Hill Drive for access, LaMantia said the city has made it clear that the program’s clients cannot park on the street, which tends to see high volumes of parking from traffic at Huber Village Park. Business owner Erica Wares said the kindergarten enrichment

program will lead children in focused, educational activities to help teach elements of the state’s kindergarten standards. She said there will not be much free play time. “It will not be a complete day care program,” Wares said. The conditional use permit was unanimously approved under the conditions that the sign for Active Learning is incorporated into the church’s existing sign, no parking is allowed on Oak Hill Drive and the city’s planning staff has final approval of the business’s landscaping plan.

Pole vault to be fun viewing at state It almost seemed inconsequential that Gahanna High School’s Jake Blankenship won the boys pole vault during the Division I regional track and field meet. Sure, the junior equaled the meet record by clearing 16 feet, but some of the loudest applause was reserved for Pickerington Central’s Grant Hammond as he advanced to state by KURTIS placing fourth but then winADAMS ning a jumpoff with Westerville Central’s Charlie Moushey. “That made my day,” Lions coach Ed Rarey said. That isn’t to say that Rarey wasn’t equally happy for Blankenship, whose feat enabled the Lions to avoid being left out of the state meet after capturing last year’s regional team championship. Blankenship will be Gahanna’s lone participant at Ohio State this weekend, after all. But Rarey’s joy for Hammond seemed genuine. Ditto for Blankenship’s as he watched from beneath a shaded cover while Hammond topped his personal-best with a 15-3 during the jump-off, even if the official height remains listed at 14-6. “You want to see everyone progress and get that (personal record),” Blankenship said. “That’s what it’s all about, so you’re always happy when somebody gets theirs.” Standing beside the pit and looking up on a sunny, windy afternoon during the regional competition May 25 at Pickerington North, I can easily see the appeal of the event. Scaling that bar is not totally unlike reaching the summit of Mount Everest. The pole vault is the mountain of prep sports, in a way. So whether it’s you or somebody else, it’s hard not to get caught up in the excitement of seeing an individual accomplish what he or she might have once thought impossible. “Pole vaulters are a very tightknit group,” Rarey said. “They look out for each other and support each other in good times and bad. They’re like a family.” If so, then prepare for a true sibling rivalry when the pole vault is contested at state on Saturday, June 4. Appropriately enough, the competition is scheduled to begin at high noon. The leading contenders all hail from central Ohio. They include Joey Uhle of Olentangy Liberty and his twin brother, Chris, who finished second and third, respectively. Both seniors struggled somewhat with both clearing 15-6. Joey first set the regional record last year and currently is the all-divisions state recordholder after he went 17-0 in the district 2 meet May 17 at Hilliard Bradley. Chris cleared a thenrecord 16-9 to win last year’s state title.

North boys squad shares regional title By FRANK DiRENNA ThisWeek Community Newspapers

By Lorrie Cecil/ThisWeek

North’s Ryan Weldon competes in the 3,200 relay during the regional meet May 25. The Warriors qualified for state with a first-place finish.

Westerville North High School track and field coach Johnny Jackson’s primary objective during the postseason is advancing as many athletes as possible to the Division I regional and state meets. Jackson said he never considered the possibility of his boys team winning the regional title until junior hurdler Joey Wilkin began crunching numbers late during the finals May 27 at Pickerington North. The Warriors used a balanced effort to score 37 points to share the title with Thomas Worthington. The Cardinals secured the tie by winning the final event, the 1,600-meter relay. “We usually don’t count points,” said Jackson, whose team took a

victory lap with the championship plaque. “We don’t need to pay attention to how good we’re going to do; we just run. We put our best people in their best events and let the chips fall where they may.” The top four finishers in each regional event qualified for the state meet on Friday, June 3, and Saturday, June 4, at Ohio State. Senior Brian Hannaford won the 3,200 in 9 minutes, 14.42 seconds, holding off a late charge by the runner-up, Dublin Scioto’s Luis Carbajal (9:14.79). Both times broke the previous meet record of 9:15.73, which was set last season by Pickerington North’s Daniel Garleb. In the district 1 meet May 21 at Hilliard Bradley, Carbajal overtook Hannaford down the stretch in the event to win the district title in 9:23.19. Hannaford, who placed

second at district in 9:23.76, made sure that didn’t happen again at regional. “I definitely thought about it all week,” Hannaford said of the district race. “Last week when he passed me, I really didn’t kick it in. I really didn’t look around. People were telling me to go, but I figured it was no point because no one was around me. This week I came in here and I was like, ‘I don’t care what’s going on. I’m going to kick in the last lap and bring it home.’” Hannaford, Jacob Dumford, Kevin Ford and Ryan Weldon opened the regional meet on May 25 by combining to win the 3,200 relay in 7:52.05. Wilkin opened the running finals on May 27 by placing second in the 110 hurdles See TRACK, page B2


Central comes up one win short of state By FRANK DiRENNA ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Moments after losing to Grove City 10-3 in a Division I regional final May 28 at Dublin Coffman, members of the Westerville Central High School baseball team focused on what they had accomplished. Despite the loss, the Warhawks still posted their most successful season in program history, finishing 24-8 overall and 10-4 in the OCC-Cardinal Division. “This was a great season,” senior third baseman Jake Simmerman said. “We never came this far before. There were a lot of great memories. Hopefully they can do it again.” Seeded fourth in the district, Central defeated Delaware 7-3 in the second round on May 11 after having a first-round bye and beat seventh-seeded Pickerington Central 4-2 in nine inSee ADAMS, page B2 nings in a district semifinal on May 20

before capturing the program’s first district title by defeating Reynoldsburg 12-7 in a district final on May 21. The Warhawks then defeated Gahanna — the fifth seed in the district — 7-4 in a regional semifinal on May 26 at Coffman before losing to Grove City, the district’s ninth seed.

WARHAWKS Continued from page B1 Grove City, however, scored two runs in the fifth and six in the seventh. “This is tough,” coach Jeff Keifer said. “We really didn’t prepare for the end of all this. I told the team it will sting for a while because you want to keep playing, but when you reflect on what we were able to accomplish, it’s been an unbelievable year. I’m really tremendously proud of these guys.” Central finished second in the OCC-Cardinal, behind Olentangy (12-2) and ahead of Marysville (7-6), Dublin Scioto (7-7), Dublin Jerome (6-8), Westerville North (5-8), Olentangy Liberty (5-9) and Westerville South (3-11). The Warhawks handed Olentangy its two losses in league play, beating the Braves 4-1 on April 26 and 11-8 on May 9. Central loses seven seniors

ADAMS vest Prep’s troubles with the Ohio High School Athletic Association. Area football coaches and school administrators alike were divided over the competitive balance issue and subsequent narrow vote, too, rejecting changes to the way teams are assigned to postseason tournaments. And just last week, Marysville became the latest school district to put athletics on the chopping block if a levy isn’t passed. Much of the news hasn’t been good during the final season of the 2010-11 school year, so perhaps seeing an achievement of that proportion would send us all into the summer with a smile on our faces. In might remind us what prep sports are all about, to borrow a phrase from Blankenship. He, too, is hoping to see another state record set. And his attitude surely will be no different even if he’s not the one standing atop the podium. “Chris and Joey are both seniors, so a part of me wants them to have it,” Blankenship said. “We’re all good friends, though, so I’m sure they probably feel the same way. If I had a chance to win it and break the record doing it, they’d be right there cheering me on.”

Continued from page B1

And then there’s Blankenship, who temporarily held the state record after he went 16-10 to win the OCC-Ohio Division title last month. He was a mere afterthought entering the season and that could make him the sentimental favorite at state, if nothing else. As much as most people seem to enjoy climbing the highest object around, they probably enjoy seeing an underdog prevail even more. “The state champ will come from this region,” Rarey said. “There’s nobody else even close.” The real question might be whether fans will witness another state record because the bar clearly has been raised by the likes of the Uhle brothers. It was only four years ago that their older sibling, Mike, won a second consecutive state championship by clearing 15-4. In 2004, Cincinnati LaSalle’s Mike Chia topped the state field at 14-9, a relatively modest height by today’s standards that would have placed him seventh in last year’s state meet. It’s been a rough spring locally for high school sports, so I for one am hoping to see the state record fall once again. That might help us all forget the lousy weath- er, for starters, not to mention the details of Har-

(14.75). “This is definitely a good feeling,” Wilkin said. “The season’s not over. I still have to concentrate and get ready for (state) because it’s definitely not done.” Dumford also qualified for state in the 800 by placing fourth in 1:53.74. “The goal is to make it out,” Dumford said. “I would have liked to maybe place one or two places higher in this, but I made it out and that’s all that really matters.” The girls team scored one point to finish 38th behind champion Reynoldsburg (88). Scoring for the Warriors were Sarah Koch, Meghan Maurer, Gabie Pace and Monica Petruzzi in the 1,600 relay (eighth, 4:07.17). •Central junior Channing Doermann will be making a return trip to state after winning the 200 (22.0) at regional. Last season at state, he finished 10th (22.36). “I didn’t even make it out of semifinals (at state) last year,” Doermann said. “I felt like last year set me back. This year, I’ve been working hard, getting bigger and stronger.” Doermann also anchored the state-qualifying 800 relay, which finished second (1:28.95). Also on the relay were seniors Dominique Cook and Dillon Seckman and junior Davon Reed. “We definitely had high expectations,” Seckman said. “We wanted first bad, but we’re in states now, so you can’t really complain about it. We really need to work on our handoffs.” Reed also qualified in the 100 after finishing fourth (11.22). Central scored 27 points at regional to tie Canal Winchester and Lancaster for ninth. “I’m really impressed with how we did,” boys coach Justin Rush said. “Channing is a regional champion in the 200, the (800 relay) finished second and we just want to keep moving on. Davon made it back, so he’s moving on in the 100. They all ran great. I’m real happy with them.” The girls team did not score at regional. •South did not have any state qualifiers, as the girls team scored eight points to tie Dresden TriValley and Mount Vernon for 24th and the boys team scored three points to tie Marietta and Vincent Warren for 32nd.

DeSales Roundup

Baseball, softball squads PROFESSIONAL DIRECTORY reach state tournaments By JEREMY STEWART ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Having no seniors on its roster hasn’t prevented the DeSales High School baseball team from making a postseason run. In fact, it might be helping the Stallions. “I think it is (helping) a little bit given the fact that we are so young and this isn’t it for them,” said coach Tom Neubert, whose team defeated Steubenville 10-8 in a Division II regional final on May 27 at Zanesville to improve to 19-9 and advance to a state semifinal for the second time in four seasons. “They can stay loose in those situations knowing that it’s not going to be their last game and maybe not understanding the game and all the pressure that goes along with it.” The Stallions, who beat Uhrichsville Claymont 3-2 in a regional semifinal on May 26, will play defending state champion Jonathan Alder in a state semifinal on Friday, June 3, at Huntington Park. The Pioneers improved to 22-3 with an 8-2 win over Greenville in a regional final on May 28. The semifinal winner plays Akron Hoban or Parma Heights Holy Name in the state final on Saturday, June 4, at Huntington Park. DeSales lost to Jonathan Alder 3-2 on April 29. The game was tied at 2 before the Pioneers scored in the seventh inning. The Stallions, who kept the game close despite being outhit 13-4, faced Jonathan Alder pitcher Graham Johnston, who was the winning pitcher in a 54 win over Cincinnati McNicholas in a regional semifinal on May 27 and a 7-3 win over Hilliard Bradley in a district final on May 21. DeSales could face Johnston again in the state semifinal. The Stallions likely will counter with pitcher T.J. Alas, who improved to 8-0 after earning the decision against Claymont. Hoban defeated Mentor Lake Catholic 9-6 in a regional final on May 28 to improve to 17-7. Holy Name beat Oak Harbor 9-4 in a regional final on May 30 to improve to 17-3. DeSales, which is making its fifth state appearance and last won a state title in 1979, led Steubenville 7-0 before giving up seven runs in the top of the fourth inning. With the game tied at 7 in the sixth inning, Zak DeCamp, Brad Bohus and Brennan Schlabig each drove in a run to put the Stallions ahead 10-7. Against Claymont, DeSales built a 3-1 lead but gave up a run in the bottom of the seventh before recording the final out. “I think that as we’ve continued to put the work in and we’ve continued to win those close games, we’ve started to have the attitude of, ‘Why wait until next year?’” Schlabig said. “The attitude we have now is, ‘Why not now?’” •The softball team looked dominant in winning a Division II regional championship.

The Stallions are making their first state appearance since 1982, when they lost to Kinsman Badger 7-6 in the final. However, coach Julie Barber guided Toledo St. Ursula to a state title in 2004. Keystone improved to 31-1 by beating three-time defending state champion Lakewood 5-4 in a regional final on May 28. The Wildcats have won two state championships, with their last coming in 2006.

Aging or not, Memorial isn’t standing pat By KURTIS ADAMS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Now in its fifth decade as one of the PGA Tour’s premier events, the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide Insurance is moving into middle age. The activity in and around Muirfield Village Golf Club hasn’t slowed, however. “A lot’s been going on,” Memorial founder and host Jack Nicklaus said. It’s clearly been a whirlwind of a year since Englishman Justin Rose posted rounds of 65-69-70-66 for an 18-under-par 270 total to defeat Rickie Fowler by three strokes and Bo Van Pelt and Ricky Barnes by six shots in the 2010 Memorial while earning his first victory on American soil. “There are plenty of tournaments more tenured than the Memorial, but for 36 years we’ve enjoyed considerable sustained success,” said Dan Sullivan, who is in his eighth year as tournament director and 20th with the Memorial. “With Jack and Barbara (Nicklaus) as our hosts, and with the way the golf course has stood the test of time, we really like where the tournament is right now and where it’s going in the future.” Groundbreaking for the redesign of the par-3 16th hole, which was the first major renovation undertaken on the course in several years, was held last July as Muirfield Village was bidding to attract the Presidents Cup in 2013. It subsequently was awarded the international competition in March

and will become the first course in the world to play host to that event in addition to the Ryder Cup and women’s Solheim Cup. Also, a six-year deal with Nationwide to become the tournament’s new presenting sponsor was announced last September. “Thanks to the vision and commitment of my father and mother, the Memorial long ago elevated itself as one of the most prestigious and popular events on the PGA Tour, while

Nationwide has a decades-old reputation of being one of the strongest providers of insurance and financial services in the country,” said Jack Nicklaus II, the Memorial’s general chairman. “But at the foundation of both our organizations is central Ohio, and I think the partnership serves to further galvanize a community.” Once tournament week begins, fans will notice other new wrinkles as well. Cell phones and other mobile devices will be permitted on the grounds at

Griffin to speak at charity camp Former Ohio State running back Archie Griffin will be the featured speaker at the annual Lauren’s First and Goal Football Camp on June 26 at Otterbein University. The camp is a fundraiser for Lauren’s First and Goal Foundation, which provides financial support for brain tumor research

and families living with pediatric cancer. The event is open to studentathletes entering grades 9-12 this fall. Athletes will be divided into small groups to receive instruction in offensive and defensive skills from volunteer coaches. To register for the camp, visit

Muirfield Village for the first time, although some restrictions still apply. Officials also have brought back the pro-am, which replaces the Skins Game. Still, some things never change. The field once again will be one of the PGA Tour’s strongest with early commitments coming from Rose, threetime major champion Phil Mickelson, Luke Donald, reigning Masters champion Charl Schwartzel, reigning British Open champion Louis Oosthuizen, two-time 2011 winner Bubba Watson and Fowler, who was named the PGA Tour’s Rookie of the Year last season. Another early entrant was Fred Couples, who won the Memorial in 1998. Elsewhere, another past champion recently was elected to the World Golf Hall of Fame. South African Ernie Els (2004) will be the eighth Memorial winner to be enshrined. The others are Jack Nicklaus (1977, ’84), Tom Watson (’79, ’96), Raymond Floyd (’82), Hale Irwin (’83, ’85), Curtis Strange (’88), Greg Norman (’90, ’95) and Vijay Singh (’97). Others are sure to follow. That list is headlined by Tiger Woods, who is the Memorial’s only four-time champion (1999-2001, ’09). Many of the Memorial’s participants likely will be competing for the final time before the U.S. Open is played June 16-19 at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md. That’s always been Woods’ schedule, although his appearance at Muirfield Village appears unlikely as he recovers from knee and Achilles injuries.

State Cup Soccer

Eight area teams bring home championships By AARON BLANKENSHIP ThisWeek Community Newspapers

There was speculation that central Ohio boys teams’ dominance in the Ohio South State Cup club soccer tournament was nearing its end last year when only four area squads won championships in the Under-10 through U-18 age brackets. That marked the lowest number of boys teams to win championships in those age groups this century. But after six Columbus-area boys teams won State Cup finals May 15 and 22 at Hobson Freedom Park in Fairborn, Team Ohio F.C. director and coach Steve Dawson said he was optimistic that last year was an aberration. The boys and girls U-19 State Cup finals are scheduled for Sunday, June 5, at Athletes in Action in Xenia. “Columbus teams did very well, especially when you consider how many clubs there are here diluting the talent and how much competition our clubs get for top players from the Crew Soccer Academy,” Dawson said. “CUP (Crew Juniors), based out of Cincinnati, is the biggest club in Ohio right now, and they don’t lose any players to the Academy. But Columbus teams have more than held their own in the State Cup in recent years, including this year, and we hope to keep that trend going in the future.” Team Ohio F.C. added to its stature as the most successful central Ohio boys soccer club since 2000. It won two more State Cup championships, increasing its total to 27 in 11 years. The Team Ohio F.C. Blast U18 boys was trailing the Metro F.C. Rapids 1-0 with 20 minutes remaining in its State Cup final on May 15, before Colton Bloecher, Walter Ford and Max Rohda scored to help their squad rally for the victory. “Our U-18 team is a very resilient group, and they haven’t lost a game since March 1,” Dawson said. “Even when we were down late in the game, they always believed they were going to find a way to win.” The Team Ohio F.C. Green U-17 boys team won its first State Cup title in four years, after losing in a final two years ago and in a semifinal last year. Team Ohio Green upset the Blast F.C. 1-0 in a State Cup final on May 15, as Sam Darling scored and A.J. Tresoline earned the shutout in goal. The Blast won a Regional Cup

Cup final on May 22. The Ohio Premier Eagles club has won three boys State Cup championships in the past two years. “We had two really good boys teams at the U-11 age level and they played a great game in the final, which was a win-win situation for our club,” Ohio Premier Eagles director and coach Chris King said. Shkreli, who has guided at least one Blast team to a State Cup championship for seven consecutive years, said the dominant run for central Ohio’s boys teams could end at any time, but he’s enjoying it while it lasts. “There’s a lot of talent and good coaching in Columbus, but honestly, the teams from around the state beat each other in league play all year,” Shkreli said. “It just goes in cycles. Columbus teams did really well in the State Cup this year, but the teams from Cincinnati and Dayton could win more State Cups next year. It’s youth soccer and kids are kids.” •Two central Ohio girls teams won State Cup titles this season. The Ohio Premier Eagles U-13 squad beat Hammer F.C. Premier 2-1 in overtime in a final on May 22 and the Ohio Premier Eagles U-16 squad defeated the Blast F.C. 1-0 in a final on May 15. “The tide of which area wins the most State Cups has gone back and forth on the girls side,” King said. “There’s a lot of parity these days, so the days of seeing one area of the state dominating for several years are over. We had one of our girls teams reach the semifinals in every age group, but the margin for error is very small and you need to not only be good, but you also need to be a little lucky to win at this level.” The Ohio Premier Eagles U13 team won its second consecutive State Cup title on Kristin McFarland’s goal in overtime. The Ohio Premier Eagles U16 team won its fourth State Cup title as Lindsey Agnew scored the winning goal against the Blast off an assist by Kaitlin Miller. Last year, the Ohio Premier Eagles lost to the Blast 10 on penalty kicks in a State Cup final. “Our U-16 team is very good and after we lost to the Blast last year, our focus was on taking back what was ours,” King said. “Lindsey Agnew had a couple of good scoring opportunities and our back line was very good.”

and finished fifth in the national tournament two years ago. “Our U-17 team winning this tournament was a big shock because we lost a lot of players over the past few years and this is the weakest team on paper that we’ve had in three years,” Dawson said. “We beat the No. 1 seed (CUP Crew Juniors 3-2) in the semifinals and then beat the No. 2 seed in the finals. Sam Darling had two goals in the semifinal and scored against the Blast. But the key thing was our defense was phenomenal and turned in a gritty effort.” The Blast F.C. U-12 boys team beat Team Ohio F.C. 3-2 in a State Cup final on May 22 to win its second State Cup title in three years. In its four State Cup games, the Blast outscored its opponents 13-2. “This is a good group of kids who love to play together and have a lot of heart and passion for the game,” Blast F.C. director and coach Lesh Shkreli said. “They shocked everyone, including me, by playing with the energy that they played with. We had a 3-0 lead in the final until there was about eight minutes left, and then our kids got a little too excited and we let up a bit. But overall I’m very happy with the way we played.” Two area clubs captured their first State Cup titles, as the GNA F.C. Revolution U-10 squad defeated Warren County United 87 on May 22 and the Classics Eagles U-13 team beat Crew Juniors 1-0 on penalty kicks on May 22. The Ohio Premier Eagles 2 U11 boys team beat Ohio Premier Eagles 1 7-4 in overtime in a State

The Beat Arts, eats and fun in central Ohio Dawes frontman Taylor Goldsmith is doing the interview while running across a parking lot, carrying his guitar and a suitcase. It’s a microcosm of the past couple of years for the southern California quartet. Since the release of its debut CD, North Hills, in 2009, the band has been on the road enough that Goldsmith jokes, “Time off? Ask our manager.” Not that he’s complaining, mind you. It’s what young bands do if they’re lucky enough to have a record to support. (The band’s rootsy vibe and smart, impassioned lyrics drew comparisons to the classic L.A. sound of the ’70s.) Plus, the experience served to benefit the new follow-up CD, Nothing Is Wrong, in at least two ways. First, it provided a natural incubator for a whole new set of songs. New settings and new experiences, coupled with the combination of excitement and weariness, make for incredible song fodder for a writer who admits, “I’m a big ‘inspiration’ guy.”

“The first record has a theme of wanting to get out, to experience what life has to offer,” Goldsmith explained. “This record is written from being in the thick of that experience, and maybe a little of wanting to get back.” The second benefit came in the opportunity to play new songs for audiences as they were being written. “These songs have been played on stages for a year,” Goldsmith said. “In fact, (recently) the majority of our set is new material.” Dawes made Nothing Is Wrong in a whirlwind month last fall. “We had been touring all summer and were going to be home in September and back out in October, so we told our management we wanted to make a record in September,” Goldsmith said. “Still, that was twice as long in the studio compared to our first record. So it might not seem that long, but it helped.” The record features guest turns from Benmont Tench of the Heartbreakers and Jackson Browne. At

the same time, Goldsmith was doing guest vocals on Robbie Robertson’s latest CD and the band was invited to be his backup band on a number of promotional performances. “These guys were our heroes — well before we ever met them,” Goldsmith said. “To have them support what we do is a real honor.” Officially, Nothing Is Wrong is set for release on June 7, although Dawes is taking pre-orders at shows. “There’s definitely an anticipation, an excitement, to find out what people think of it,” Goldsmith admitted. “The idea of buying a new record at the record store might be a romantic one, but you can still download a new record the day it comes out. People can still get excited about the release of a certain record.” For more from The Beat’s interview with Taylor Goldsmith of Dawes, read the BeatBlog at

If the boys in NEEDTOBREATHE get the presumably sizable crowds on their tour as opening act for Taylor Swift to sing and shout along with the title track of their most recent record, The Outsiders, you can thank The Beat. Or it’s possible guitarist Bo Rinehart was just being polite when he said he’d take the suggestion to the band. Either way, the southern rockers couldn’t be happier to be spending the summer with Swift. “The way we heard it is, she’s a big fan of the band,” Rinehart told us. “We were playing a show in Minneapolis and we got a phone call. We were like ‘All … right. Is this a joke?’ But they asked us if we wanted to go on tour. At that point, you’re kind of an idiot to say no.” Obvious stylistic and demographic differences aside, Rinehart admitted it was too good of an opportunity to pass up. “On any tour, you’re excited about meeting new fans,” he said. “But we figure most of her fans don’t know who we are, but they’re people we think will still like our music.” The quartet from a small South Carolina hamlet (“We’re the first band to get signed from Possum Kingdom,” Rinehart said without a hint of irony) boasts records rooted in southern roots rock, but with pop, country and arena rock influences. Despite not being overtly faith-based, NEEDTOBREATHE has also had success on the Contemporary Christian Music charts. “I suppose we’re hard to market or nail down,” Rinehart said, “but it’s a great problem to have, to not be limited. We’ve seen and toured with bands whose fans won’t let them change.” “Sure, we’d like to have a big radio smash, but right now, we don’t feel like a show is hanging

on the success of one song,” he added. “Night to night, the most popular song changes. It’s fresh and exciting.” Rinehart admitted the band’s small-town beginnings kept them a bit too humble early in their career, but that the lessons learned have paid off in increasingly improved records. “We loved what we were doing but we didn’t know what we were doing,” he confessed. “We had no good examples of how it could be done, so we were maybe too open to the ears of others. And we were maybe afraid of going outside the south, where they might not appreciate our accents or our music. “But we discovered we have to stick to our guns as far as what we wanted to present, and that was the stuff that really poked its head out — honest, heart-onsleeve songs about things that really affect you.” The band’s follow-up to The Outsiders is due out later this year. This summer tour affords NEEDTOBREATHE the opportunity to try out some of the new songs on audiences that may

not necessarily know they’re new. “On one hand, you are always in complete doubt about whether anybody is going to like what you do, but on the other hand, we’re proud of the new songs and we think we knocked it out of the park,” Rinehart said. “If (Swift’s) audiences like good music and good live bands, well, we just hope to impress them and capitalize on any of her fans that would like us.” Which brings us to the crowd participation on The Outsiders. The Beat mentioned to Rinehart that the band might be looking forward to hearing an arena full of people shouting along with one of their songs and assumed they were prepared to teach it to a, hopefully, willing audience. “Yeah, I’m about to go into rehearsal, so I’ll mention that to the guys,” was the reply. So there you go. Make sure you’re properly warmed up. For more from The Beat’s interview with Bo Rinehart of NEEDTOBREATHE, read the BeatBlog at

CHA volunteer Elissa O’Sullivan pets Marley, a 5-year-old mixed breed, who is looking for a home. Marley was returned to the shelter after being adopted because the family divorced and couldn’t keep him. He has been back at the shelter for quite some time now and is looking for a new family.

Special promotion helped find homes for shelter’s dogs, cats By KEVIN PARKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Saying goodbye to old friends is never easy, even if it is for the best. A lot of bittersweet partings have been taking place of late at CHA Animal Shelter on Corporate Drive. Thanks to a rollback in adoption fees during most of the month of May, in some cases to 1950sera levels, “forever homes” were found for many dogs and cats, including some who had been residents of the shelter long enough to find their way into the hearts of staff members and volunteers, according to development director Terri Montigny. Adoption fees were trimmed to $50 from May 10 to May 31, and during the weekend of May 2022, the charge for a neutered dog or cat who had been at the shelter five months or more was only $5. “It’s the first time we’ve done this particular promotion,” Montigny said. It was instituted because the facility was full.

“We had maxed out our numbers,” Montigny said. Uncertainty stemming from troubled economic times was no doubt part of the reason for that, she added. “I think people, rightfully so, look at the long-term commitment of having another mouth to feed,” Montigny said. Special adoption fee promotions in 2010 helped increase the number of pets placed in permanent homes over the previous year. “We’re all looking for the best price out there right now on everything,” Montigny said. Special promotional pricing has helped find new homes for animals that had been around the shelter for many, many months. While the 350-plus volunteers who come in to help out every week and the CHA Animal Shelter employees come to love these dogs and cats, Montigny said there

is a great deal of joy involved in watching someone take them home. “The happiest moment of our lives,” she said. “It really is. But we get extremely attached to those animals.” CHA is one of the few adoption organizations to have a pit bull program, she pointed out. One of CHA’s pit bulls, named Lois, called the shelter home for 13 months before someone finally took her. “You see an animal every single day for 13 months, you become very attached to that animal,” Montigny pointed out. Attached or not, though, a loving household is the ultimate goal, she added. “It’s the greatest feeling in the world,” Montigny said, “that you worked really hard, you promoted the animal, you used all your contacts and you found the perfect home for this dog or cat. We love it. I don’t think there’s anything more satisfying in our job.”
