Council OKs entertainment district By CHRIS BOURNEA ThisWeek Community Newspapers

In a unanimous vote Monday night, Upper Arlington City Council approved emergency legislation to create a Community Entertainment District for 39.2acres along Lane Avenue bordered by North Star Road on the east and Northwest Boulevard on the west.

The entertainment district was initiated by an application that Roy Boy LLC filed with the city in mid-May. Roy Boy LLC is the owner of the property that includes Half Price Books and Pizza Hut at 1375 W. Lane Ave. and 1397 W. Lane Ave., respectively. John Royer, a partner in Roy Boy, said he thinks the entertainment district will promote further development on Lane

Avenue. “The Lane Avenue corridor is Upper Arlington’s premier corridor,” he said, “and it is the gateway to our city.” The newly created entertainment district will allow up to seven new “D-5j” liquor permits, which allow the sale of beer, wine or liquor in the district. The area currently has 11 liquor permits, said Matt Shad, deputy city manager for eco-

nomic development. In approving the legislation, council members said the entertainment district will help the city take a holistic approach to development along the Lane Avenue corridor. The creation of the entertainment district, along with a traffic and parking study that is currently under way, will help the city identify how to provide a balance between commercial

and residential, council members said. “I think it’s one of the most important commercial corridors in the city,” said council president Frank Ciotola. “I think I would be remiss in not protecting and enhancing one of our only commercial corridors.” Debbie Johnson said the entertainSee DISTRICT, page A2

Extra garden is bonus on home tour By GARY BUDZAK ThisWeek Community Newspapers

For those going to the Upper Arlington Historic Home and Garden Tour, there’s an additional garden to view — that of Lynn and Jeff Dorr at 2819 Leeds Road. “This garden is a true bonus,” said Kate Erstein of the UA Historical Society. “People do not need a ticket to view it, but a ticket is needed for all the other houses.” “When I contacted them, I didn’t realize it was a house and garden tour,” said Jeff Dorr. “The historical society could have said you don’t fit our criteria, but they looked at the garden and they thought it was nice.”

Visitors will be able to see only the Dorrs’ garden, which was Japanese-inspired. “We didn’t try to make it read Japanese as much as having a stroll garden feel,” Dorr said. “It’s mostly gravel pathways that meander around through planting areas, nothing formal about it whatsoever. It’s very asymmetric and casual.” The Dorrs purchased their home in 1987, and since then they have changed almost all of their landscaping except for a few existing trees. They did have to take out their ash trees, but not because of the emerald ash borer. “Our neighborhood is just filled with ashes,” Dorr said. “Whoever developed

the Canterbury area really just went overboard with putting in ash trees. They were lovely for years and make a nice canopy, but in the last ten years they’ve been losing a lot of limbs right and left and dying all around. “They were really big trees and one of them was over the house, and we didn’t want to see that happen,” he said. “We did that before (hurricane) Ivan came through and are glad we did, because people lost all kinds of stuff.” The Dorrs have created a sanctuary with their garden, which includes a flagstone patio, hammock, bird feeders, a waterfall See GARDEN, page A3

The Upper Arlington Board of Education agreed to a three-year collective bargaining agreement with the Upper Arlington Education Association at its June 13 meeting. In March, the school board and UAEA extended the current contract through 2012, with union members agreeing to forgo a raise in calendar year 2012 and to defer any experience step increases from August 2011 to January 2012. Under the new agreement, which runs through December 2014, teachers will again forgo a raise in calendar year 2013, and will receive a base raise of 1 percent in calendar year 2014. Employees will be eligible for step increases beginning in January 2012. UAEA members also agreed to pay an increased share of the medical insurance premium. In the last two years, employees have paid an average of 9 percent for family coverage. Their share of the premium will increase to 12 percent in 2013 and 15 percent in 2014. District treasurer Andy Geistfeld said he is “excited” about the new contract. “It’s about a $4.47 million savings for the district. But the important part is also stability,” he said. “There’s stability for the district, stability for the employees. The union and the district really work well together.” Board president Marjory Pizzuti thanked UAEA for negotiating with “mutual respect and civility” during “exceedingly challenging times.” The motion to approve the contract was approved unanimously, with board member William Catalano abstaining. Board member Gloria Heydlauff was not present. UAEA co-presidents Steve Colahan and Suzanne Kotch said the union voted on the agreement June 7, with 69 percent of the membership present. Members voted in favor of the new contract by 81 percent.

A closer look Under the new agreement, which runs through December 2014, teachers will again forgo a raise in calendar year 2013, and will receive a base raise of 1 percent in calendar year 2014. Employees will be eligible for step increases beginning in January 2012.

Colahan said the teachers were looking for a contract extension because of an unpredictable environment. “The political landscape is changing every moment, and we just need time to digest whatever happens,” he said. Geistfeld also updated board members on the status of the state’s biennial budget, which must be finalized by June 30. The Senate and House versions of the budget are currently being negotiated in conference committee. Gov. John Kasich will then review the negotiated budget, retaining line item veto. “Hopefully, in two and a half weeks, we’ll understand where we end up, which is part of the reason we delayed some conversation with where we are with the levy,” he said. “Things are kind of up in the air still, and there are so many moving targets.” A special meeting is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, June 29, at the District Administration Building, 1950 N.

HOME Continued from page A1 movie theaters in Columbus and Dayton. The home included many theatrical elements, including a cathedral ceiling, medieval sconces, and a film projection room in the basement. “I would probably guess it was Arlington’s first home theater,” Eric said. “His wife had a fullfledged pipe organ down there, too, because she was a theater organist back in the day. We do have a theater (there now), but it’s not Walter’s. It’s more modern.” The Leiningers are the third family to own the home, having purchased the property in 2000.

The previous owner added a family room/master suite, and the Leiningers recently updated the kitchen. “Basically, it was to make it more usable, some modern conveniences,” Sue said. For example, “the cabinets were to the point where every time you opened a drawer, you would be getting a bucket of sawdust underneath it, because it just kept grinding.” The wooden deck in back was replaced with a multi-level stone patio. The Leiningers have also restored the Miles’ koi pond. “The old pond wasn’t quite deep enough, so one winter it froze all the way through,” Eric said. “You

need it three feet deep in this part of the country to make sure it doesn’t freeze all the way. We made it so it’s a four-season thing now. And we added a waterfall so we have nice noise in back of the house.” The Miles’daughter, Susan Rodriguez, is expected to visit the home the day of the tour. One thing that may look familiar to her is all the stairs, since the house sits on a hill. “There are three steps up to the kitchen, and there are three up and down everywhere,” Eric said. “We literally got lost in it the first couple months we were here.”



Continued from page A1 ment district will provide an economic development tool to help the city boost revenues. “In Upper Arlington, we as residents expect a certain level of services and to do that, we rely on our taxes,” Johnson said. “In the state of Ohio, the tax revenue will be going down. We need to be creative to find ways to supplement that so we do not have to decrease services or raise income taxes.” Wade Steen, chairman of council’s finance committee, said he would like to convene a meeting to focus on how the city can allot money to spend on buffering neighborhoods that surround Lane Avenue from commercial development. The city has the ability to spend money on buffering before tax-increment financing becomes available next year, Steen said. Before casting her vote for the entertainment district, Mary Ann Krauss asked city attorney Jeanine Hummer whether the city can rescind the designation. Hummer said all or part of the entertainment-district designation could be rescinded. Residents have the ability to vote the area dry, but it would require a citywide vote rather than just those who live in the immediate area, Hummer said. Residents expressed a number of concerns about the entertainment district, including that it will exacerbate existing traffic and parking problems. “It’s a challenge to walk or ride your bike” under current conditions, said Northwest Boulevard resident Rebecca Stringer. “I don’t think it will get any better with more entertainment.” Another resident asked whether the city will have the ability to regulate the hours of operation of any new establishments. Hummer said the city can place such conditions for approval when new developments come before the Board of Zoning and Planning. One resident, Bob Houser of Berkshire Road, said he supports the entertainment district and thinks it will enhance the Lane Avenue corridor. “I love where I live. I love going to the Rusty Bucket” and other attractions in the area, he said. Council members encouraged residents to continue to participate in the traffic and parking study conducted by consulting firm AECOM. Public meetings are scheduled for June 21 and June 23 at 6:30 p.m. at the Municipal Services Center, 3600 Tremont Road.

Compensation study

Report shows city ‘on track,’ but offers recommendations By ANDREW MILLER ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Upper Arlington is right on track with comparable Ohio municipalities in terms of its pay practices. The Waters Consulting Group presented its findings of the 2011 Total Compensation Study to city council June 6. City officials now have the data they were looking for to make decisions during the mid-budget review following council’s summer recess. According to the study, the city currently is considered to be competitive in all four areas of compensation, when compared to 15 Ohio communities (including seven in central Ohio) and private-sector data published by the Economic Research Institute. The four key areas of compensation on which WCG reported were the market competitiveness of actual salaries and pay ranges, and comparability of benefit offerings and pay practices. The scope of the study covered the city’s 69 nonunion positions. “(The study) really shows we’re on track,” said Emma Speight, deputy city manger for community affairs. “We’ve got some recommendations now such as looking more at the pickup of retirement benefits and narrowing the pay scale band. “We understand everyone is tightening their belts, and don’t think some further tightening will affect our ability to retain talent that much, but you do have to balance pay with attracting

talent.” Currently, according to the study, the city is within its established pay policy, which establishes pay structures between 94 and 103 percent of the market average. The overall average for the city’s current salary comparable ratio is 102.1 percent. “While overall we’re still in our range, we have a big difference between the people being paid at the high and low end of the pay scale,” city council member Erik Yassenoff said. “I like that the study said we’re on target, but we need to look at how we can have the majority of our people in the middle range of pay instead of at the extremes.” A competitive market pay range has an overall average spread of 34 percent between the highest and lowest paid employees; the city’s current spread is 44 percent. The study found five areas that were outside of market norms in which the city may choose to make revisions: • Cost sharing of employee insurance coverage. • Continued reduction of the “pick up” of employee retirement contribution. • Provision of vision coverage. • Wellness programs. • Tuition reimbursement. Of these five areas, the city currently does not require a contribution from employees when “employee-only” health insurance is selected, and the city contributes 9 percent of the employee’s 10 percent required retirement contribution. According to the study, changes to these

policies without adjustment to pay would decrease the market competitiveness of the city’s salaries. Vision coverage, wellness programs and tuition reimbursement are all benefits that are generally provided by market competitors but are not provided by the city. “We have a lot of longevity, and we need to look at how we factor that in as we move forward,” Yassenoff said. “I don’t think we should penalize people for their service.” Yassenoff said he is hopeful the study won’t “just sit on a shelf” but said council will wait before taking action on the recommendations. “We’ll have to wait and see what happens with S.B. 5,” Yassenoff said. “We need to know what the impact of that is going to be before we make any changes going forward.” According to Speight, city finance director Cathe Armstrong is currently putting together an analysis of the possible effects of S.B. 5 on staffing budgets, which will be used during the mid-budget review. “We’ve been able to attract and retain really talented people,” Speight said. “It’s a good thing to do a study like this to keep us accountable. Now it’s up to council to take all of this information and tell us what direction they want to go in.” The city operates on a twoyear budget, which was approved by council last December. The mid-budget review by council is scheduled to be completed in December of this year.

Commentary and opinion

Lane Avenue: Could it be Arlington’s Main Street? In Upper Arlington, the debate over whether patrons of businesses along Lane Avenue should be allowed to park on nearby side streets was settled by a city council vote last week that eliminated resident permit parking. After dozens of yard signs with silhouettes of dogs and children failed to sway council members, the parking conflict moves into summer with renewed tension — and perhaps renewed hope. The permit parking issue underlines a much broader problem: Lane Avenue has juggled many uses over its existence, often not serving any use particularly well. In an attempt to be all things to everyone, the six-block stretch between Northwest Boulevard and North Star Road has been a battleground where businesses, residents, and commuters share limited space and a delicate equilibrium. That equilibrium is reaching a tipping point, with the coming expansion of Whole Foods, potential for new restaurants across the street, and the recent idea to create an “entertainment district” (for more liquor permits). Which way will Lane Avenue tip? And how did we get here? Well, as Upper Arlington expanded northward in the 1940s, Lane Avenue became a key artery to Columbus and eventually state Route 315, creating fertile ground for business activity. In the 60plus years since, the area has witnessed a hodgepodge of uses as shopping and development habits changed: a suburban strip center and indoor mall, furniture and department stores, gas stations and banks, a supermarket and movie theater, the town’s second library, and trendy al fresco restaurants. A handful of midcentury homes have enjoyed a front seat to the street’s prickly evolution. Those homes are disappearing, along with freestanding businesses and offices dotting the avenue (each seemingly designed by rolling dice). Along the way, Lane Avenue also grew into a primary commuting route for folks to the west. In fact, much of the traffic through the area today are commuters that likely consider the businesses in

the district and their left-turning patrons to be a nuisance. To plan Lane Avenue’s future, a more fundamental DAN question MAGESTRO should be answered by stakeholders first: which places give the strongest sense of community and civic pride? In Upper Arlington, is it an ancient mall turned destination grocer? Is it an elaborate new fire station? Is it a new park with an old barn? Or is it the street itself, the place where all aspects of civic life are carried out daily, where commerce and community are intertwined? The answer throughout history has been Main Street. And for all Upper Arlington offers to residents and families, the city has lacked a true Main Street since sleepy Arlington Avenue’s Mallway was hopping before World War II. In this way, Upper Arlington is unique among its sister cities, and many area suburbs recently have taken steps to inject new life into their Main Streets. Dublin’s redevelopment around Bridge Street, Westerville’s lifting of its alcohol ban on State Street, and Powell’s

creation of a walkable town center around Liberty Street have shown the social and economic value of well-planned Main Streets that serve businesses and residents first, at the expense of thru traffic. I believe striving for Main Street is the highest attainable goal for Lane Avenue. The street should be designed for residents first and traffic last. The city’s 2001 Master Plan laid out a vision for a vibrant, mixed-use Main Street, complete with a town square, tree-lined sidewalks, and a calmer Lane Avenue. At initial planning meetings with the city’s design firm in May, that same vision was echoed by many residents. Whether Lane Avenue is capable of becoming our Main Street relies on an aggressive, integrated planning effort that tackles parking issues and heavy traffic headon, as well as the recognition that we’re missing something without a town center. A true town center would make Upper Arlington an even greater community. In the end, the residents that sought permit-parking along Brandon and Chester Roads stand to gain the most from a revitalized, pedestrian-friendly Main Street. Now wouldn’t that be a great outcome to the parking debate? Dan Magestro, Ph.D., is an Upper Arlington resident and a member of the Leadership UA Class of 2009.

Managing a Chronic Condition?

By GARY BUDZAK ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The women gathered at Michele Rapp’s home in Upper Arlington last November didn’t realize they were eating a vegetarian meal with tofu and the kinds of vegetables that youngsters and many adults would turn their nose up at. Nor did they realize they were about to be members of the Ladies Explorer Club. Rapp, who is married and has two children, said she started the club as something fun to do with her girlfriends instead of vent. “I’m 43 years old now, and going out to a bar and having drinks is not my scene anymore,” Rapp said. “So I came up with this idea of something that was a little bit more fulfilling, something self-empowering.” She told her friends that she would be facilitating the kind of monthly activities that one might put on a bucket list.

“I would be taking them on monthly adventures of things that come outside their comfort zone,” she said. Since then, members of the Ladies Explorer Club have done such adventurous things as skeetshooting, changing oil at an auto repair shop, fencing, rappelling, and going to Cincinnati last weekend to fly on a trapeze and walk a tightrope. “Some of the activities you might not want to do, and then

CLUB Continued from page A5 is not the hens clucking. None of that is allowed. This is totally positive, self-empowering.” Rapp said the Ladies Explorer Club has grown through word of mouth from five women to 50. One of those original members is Rapp’s neighbor, Emily Pagnotto. “What the club means to me is often as a woman, your identity

is defined by you are — so-andso’s wife or mother,” Pagnotto said. “But in the club, it’s defined by you, and maybe a version of you that you’ve never explored before.” Pagnotto said she’s done things that she wouldn’t normally do, thanks to the club. “You might not be able to do it one month, but you can do it the next,” she said. “Or, I’m afraid of heights. I don’t want to rock

climb this month, but I’ll try the next thing. It’s really flexible and easy, and you get to meet a lot of different people. “It gets you out of the house,” Pagnotto said. “A lot of us ladies have children, and it’s a good excuse to have some girl time, laugh and feel empowered.” For more information, visit or send an email to

Academy students learn about cop ops, stay active as alumni By ANDREW MILLER ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Upper Arlington Police Division is rounding up a new posse for the 2011 Citizen Police Academy. Residents and Upper Arlington business leaders are invited to apply for one of the 12 spots available. The 10 weekly academy classes are held on Thursday evenings, Sept.15 through Nov. 17. “Our goal for the academy is to build a strong relationship with community members by giving them a fun and interesting, handson, behind-the-scenes view of our police officers’work,” said Heather Galli, Upper Arlington Police Division community relations officer. According to the application, the lessons include crime scene investigations, crime prevention tips, defensive tactics, firearms and safety training, patrol tactics, and ride-alongs with officers. The program is not strictly informational, Galli said. After completion of the course, participants

are given the opportunity to join the Citizen Police Academy Alumni Group, which provides volunteer opportunities to members. “After the first class graduated (in 2006), several members wanted to come up with a way to give back to the division, so the alumni group formed,” said Mark Shutt, academy graduate and alumni group member. “We’ve been able to help out with things like traffic control at the 4th of July Parade and working information booths at city events. This frees up officers to focus on safety services and expands on services the department can provide that there isn’t normally manpower for.” In recent years the alumni group raised funds for a child ID kit. The alumni volunteer their time taking the kit to daycare and other child-oriented businesses and events, according to Shutt, where community members can have ID’s created for their children. “The biggest thing for (the division) to come out of this is the outreach that alumni provide for us,” Galli said. “After the course

they are prepared to talk to their neighbors and friends about crime prevention. Community education is very important to the division beyond just providing safety services, so expanding on that through these volunteers is great. That’s why I’m so passionate about this program.” Shutt said that he got more out of the course than he expected. “I definitely got what I expected out of this course and more,” Shutt said. “The officers did a great job with the classes. They were excellent at citing textbook info as well as knowing the technical, hands-on stuff. The ride-along was great and I’ve had a chance to do several more since the class.” Applicants are required to undergo a background check, according to Galli, and the screening process is designed to provide a diverse mix of backgrounds. The Citizen Police Academy is free to participants. Applications are due by Friday, Aug. 19. For more information, call the police division at 583-5159 or download the application at

FCC wine-tasting to raise funds for Kenyan orphanage By ALAN FROMAN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Mission Council of First Community Church will hold “A Taste for Rafiki,” an evening wine tasting event from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Friday, June 24, in Grace Hall on FCC’s north campus. All proceeds of the event will go to support the Rafiki AIDS Ministry in Kenya. “Our mission council has been a supporter of Rafiki for quite a long time,” said Connie Hieatt, FCC’s director of communications. The ministry operates an orphanage for children who lost their parents to AIDS, she said. “One of the main goals of the ministry is to build a school for the children,” Hieatt said. “In Kenya, you have to pay to attend public school, and a lot of these children can’t afford the cost to go to school.” The aim of the ministry is to be able to educate the children so they can remain and help their home-

land, she said. Hieatt was among a group of First Community Church members who traveled to Kenya to visit the orphanage. “It was an unbelievable experience,” she said. “I didn’t want to leave and I can’t wait to go back. “Most people might think these children would be sad and heartbroken, but they are so positive and always had smiles on their faces,” Hieatt said. The Rafiki orphanage provides the youngsters with a stable, safe place to live, something denied many other children in Kenya, especially those who have lost their parents to AIDS or other diseases, she said. “Of course, there are a lot of sad cases at the orphanage, but the staff take very good care of the children,” Hieatt said. “It’s better than having to live out on the street.” In addition to having the opportunity to sample a variety of fine wines, those attending “A Taste for Rafiki” will also be able

to participate in a Best Wine Contest. Those who choose to participate in the contest will be asked to bring two bottles of wine, Hieatt said. One bottle will be used for the contest and the other will go into a pool of wines that will serve as the prizes for the winners. The winner of the Best Wine Contest will be determined by a vote of those attending the event, she said. The top three vote getters will each receive a portion of the wine pool. The evening will also include entertainment, hors d’oeuvres and light finger foods. Guests will also be able to learn more about supporting the ministry, including sponsoring a child, buying a brick for the school or entering a raffle, Hieatt said. Tickets are $15 for adults or $25 for couples and can be purchased at, in the church office, at the door or following First Community’s Sunday services at both the north and south campuses, she said.

Have You Heard? by Greg VanHorssen FEELING OF FULLNESS Some people describe experiencing such an uncomfortable (and even painful) feeling of “fullness” in their ears that they schedule an examination by physician. In some cases, fullness in the ears can be caused by hearing loss, which may be confirmed by an audiogram and may be helped with a hearing instrument. Another diagnosis, “Eustachian tube dysfunction,” may arise from a blocked or malfunctioning Eustachian tube, which connects the middle ear with the nasal cavity. It is this tube’s job to equalize the air pressure on either side of the eardrum. When there is less pressure on the inside of the eardrum than outside, the eardrum may cave in slightly, causing the feeling of fullness.

Heart palpitations are not unusual in children, teens Many children experience a racing, pounding heart or “skipped” heart beats at some point in their lives. Some also report that they can feel these symptoms in their neck. These are known as heart palpitations. Though these palpitations can be a strange feeling, parents should remember that they are not necessarily an indication of something more serious. There are a number of factors that may influence someone’s heart rate and rhythm, including exercise, stress, caffeine and certain medications (such as those to treat asthma or heart conditions). Some kids may simply notice their own normal heart rhythm and wonder if it is normal. Sometimes, though, palpitations can be an indication of an abnormal heart rhythm. The vast majority of these rhythms are not lifethreatening in otherwise healthy children. There are a few types of abnormal heart rhythms, also known as arrhythmias. Tachycardia arrhythmias are characterized by a

rapid heart beat, but it is important to realize that a healthy child can easily get his or her heart rate NAOMI above 160 beats per KERTESZ minute with exercise. Sometimes, a heartbeat is simply early. This is a premature contraction. Heart arrhythmias can be lifelong or temporary. They can also be congenital, which means that children are born with it. A child does not have to be born with a heart defect to have a heart arrhythmia. In fact, many children experience arrhythmias and have normally formed hearts. You should consult you primary care physician if your child experiences palpitations. The physician will evaluate the frequency and intensity of these palpitations, your child’s medical history and that of your family. In many cases, treatment is not necessary.

Here at the Heart Center at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, our comprehensive care includes a thorough medical history and potentially an electrocardiogram (EKG). In addition, we offer portable monitors that can record your child’s symptoms. These can be worn anywhere from one to 30 days, or only when your child experiences palpitations. Some of these monitors are the size of credit cards and can be carried in your pocket. They can record a tracing of your child’s heart rhythm, known as an ECG, which can then be shared over the phone with your cardiologist for evaluation. Our Heart Center is ranked among the best in the country and offers comprehensive care for all kinds of pediatric heart conditions. Dr. Naomi Kertesz is director of electrophysiology and pacing at the Heart Center at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and an associate professor of pediatrics at The Ohio State University College of Medicine.

Girls Lacrosse

Rebuilding process was quick for UA By PAUL BATTERSON

By Chris Parker/ThisWeek

Upper Arlington’s Megan Hansel takes a shot June 3 against Hudson in a Division I state semifinal. The Golden Bears advanced to the state final for the fifth consecutive season, losing to Medina 14-13 in double overtime.

ThisWeek Community Newspapers

At a glance

The Upper Arlington High School girls lacrosse team appeared to be facing a rebuilding season this spring given that it had to replace 10 starters from its 2010 squad, which went 173-1 and was the Division I state runner-up. Instead, the Golden Bears reached the state final for the fifth consecutive year and came within a goal of capturing the state championship, as they lost to Medina 14-13 in double overtime in a rematch of the 2010 state final on June 4 at Gates Mills Hawken to finish 16-5 overall. “We were such a young team,” coach Kim Rocheleau said. “We had really a brand new group of girls trying to be cohesive and they made it to the championship game. It was a great achievement.” Junior midfielder Megan Hansel wasn’t shocked by the Bears’ success. “When we were in fifth or sixth grade, a bunch of us were on a team that did really well in the Ohio Cup,” Hansel said. “This team reminded me a lot of that team. Because we were so young, we knew we needed to step it up, but we all knew how each other played.” That’s not to say that the Bears didn’t experience some growing pains early in the season. They lost their opener against Brooklandville (Md.) St. Paul’s School for Girls 22-7 on March 27, representing the most goals UA has allowed during Rocheleau’s threeyear tenure as coach. “It took them a game to be comfortable with each other,” Rocheleau said. “Once they did, the communication kicked in and they solidified (defensively).”

•Record: 16-5 overall, 4-1 (second) in OCC-Buckeye •Seniors lost: Emma Frair, Adriane Ghidotti and Elizabeth Sega •Key returnees: Lauren Drake, Samantha Farwick, Sydney Farwick, Megan Hansel, Sally Holbert and Maggie Morrison

According to Rocheleau, the Bears’ cohesiveness was evident in a 10-6 win over Medina on April 30 in the Cleveland Heights Invitational. “(Our players) showed what they were made of the first time we played Medina,” Rocheleau said. “That was such a huge rivalry for us. They stepped on the field and played so cohesively. We just knew the potential there. We saw we could play with anyone.” UA opened the postseason with a 19-0 win over Liberty Township Lakota East in the second round of the Division I South/Central Region tournament on May 18. It then defeated Cincinnati Ursuline Academy 191 in a regional semifinal on May 23, Cincinnati Sycamore 20-11 in a regional final on May 26 and Hudson 13-11 in a state semifinal on June 3 before falling to Medina. The loss to Medina marked the third year in a row in which the Bears lost in the state final. UA, which won its last state title in 2008, lost to Cincinnati Sycamore 7-6 in 2009 and lost to Medina 15-9 last year. “One of our slogans for the year has been ‘dig,’as in dig down deep,” Hansel said. “In (the double-overtime loss to Medina), everyone gave every ounce of everything they had.

Track & Field

Girls coach excited about team’s future By PAUL BATTERSON ThisWeek Community Newspapers

At a glance

Olivia Menden of the Upper Arlington High School girls track and field team already has starting thinking about next season. But right now, the junior is looking forward to taking some time off after finishing 11th in the 1,600 meters in 5 minutes, 6.66 seconds and 12th in the 800 in 2:21.7 in the state meet June 4 at Ohio State. “I’m determined to make (next season) a good year, but one of the most important things I can do right now though is take a break,” said Menden, who also runs cross country and plays basketball. “I feel I should be with the (girls basketball) team (participating in summer workouts) right now, but taking some time off is important because I want to be healthy the whole season.” Also representing the Golden Bears at state was freshman Dorry Jaffe, who placed 15th in the 3,200 in 11:46.55. UA did not score at state but scored 100 points in the OCCCentral Division meet May 12 and 14 at Hilliard Davidson to finish third, behind Dublin Coffman (164.5) and Davidson (131) and ahead of Hilliard Darby (88), Thomas Worthington (84.5), Worthington Kilbourne (55), Central Crossing (26) and Westland (10). The Bears then finished fourth (78) in the 13-team district 3 meet that concluded May 21 at Hilliard Bradley behind champion Dublin Scioto (139) and finished eighth (24) in the regional meet May 25 and 27 at Pickerington North behind champion Reynoldsburg

•Finishes: Boys — Fifth in OCC-Central, seventh in district, 32nd in regional; Girls — Third in OCC-Central, fourth in district, eighth in regional •Seniors lost: Boys — Robert Bridger, Connor Bruce, Kenton Bueche, Wes Ewing, Andrew Mariotti and Alex Michael; Girls — Marguerite Beck, Michelle Botomogno, Alexis Koon, Julia Melvin, Leah Moody, Grace O’Brien and Simone Richards •Key returnees: Boys — Sam Colachis, Chase Dunivan, Frank Epitropoulos, Greg Hickey, Ben Kompa, Ryan McSheffery and Victor Pataky; Girls — Natalie Bayer, Leigh Anne Drake, Dorry Jaffe, Maren Levering, Olivia Menden and Halle Trabue

(88) as 40 teams scored. “One of the things I’m going to remember is the character that showed through on the girls team,” coach Joel Cutler said. “We had girls who competed through injury and competed through outlandish weather, whether it was freezing cold temperatures or torrential downpours. The girls competed with such tenacity. I’m very proud of our girls and how they finished things off.” UA loses seven seniors, including three regional qualifiers in Marguerite Beck, Julia Melvin and Leah Moody. At regional, Beck anchored the 800 relay (13th, 1:47.54) and Moody and Melvin were on the 3,200 relay (sixth, 9:35.63). “I really adore (this group of seniors) because they were willing to buy into a new philosophy,” Cutler said. “I loved their hard work and energy they brought to practices every day. Without them, we couldn’t have

advanced as a team.” Menden and Jaffe are expected to return, as are regional qualifiers in junior Mary Jones (800 relay and 1,600 relay), sophomores Natalie Bayer (300 hurdles), Leigh Anne Drake (800 relay) and Maren Levering (800 relay and 1,600 relay) and freshman Halle Trabue (1,600 relay). “I’m extremely excited about what our future looks like,” Cutler said. “I feel like we can make a run for the OCCs next year. I don’t know any reason why we can’t compete with the Davidsons and Coffmans of the world.” •One-fourth of an inch was all that kept junior Frank Epitropoulos from qualifying for state, as he placed fifth in the long jump at regional by going 21 feet, 8 inches. Canal Winchester’s Antonio Whitfield placed fourth in 21-8 1/4. The top four in each regional event advanced to the state. Epitropoulos also competed at regional in the 400, finishing 13th (52.09). The boys team’s only other regional qualifier was sophomore Ben Kompa, who finished 10th in the discus (131-10). UA scored four points at regional to finish 31st behind cochampions Thomas (37) and Westerville North (37) as 39 teams scored. The Bears placed fifth (49) in the OCC-Central meet, behind Davidson (170.5), Coffman (158.5), Thomas (129.5) and Darby (96.5) and ahead of Central Crossing (20), Kilbourne (19) and Westland (13), and finished seventh (45.5) in the 16-team dis-

UA’s junior 8 girls boat places fifth at nationals By JARROD ULREY ThisWeek Community Newspapers

For the Upper Arlington High School boys and girls rowing teams, this season was about taking a step forward despite having large numbers of young competitors. Both squads believe they did just that. At the Scholastic Rowing Association of American (SRAA) Nationals held specifically for high school teams May 27 and 28 on the Cooper River in Camden, N.J., the Bears had five boys See TRACK, page C2 and two girls boats competing.

The junior 8 girls boat featuring juniors Emory Bergdoll, Angelina Caradonna, Zoe Ribar and Ceri Turner, sophomores Ashley Holden, Kate Lowes, Grace Tucker and Ashley Williams and coxswain Summers Hammel finished fifth (5 minutes, 23.1 seconds) in the grand final. The junior 8 race was specifically for underclassmen. “The semifinal was probably more exciting than the grand final because we had to turn it on just to make it to the grand final,” said Andy Wimmer, who has coached the team the last two seasons. “That was kind of exciting for

the junior 8 boat. The girls did awesome. It was good to know that we were the fastest out of our region at nationals.” The girls also had their freshman 8 boat finish sixth (5:33.16) in the grand final, which Wimmer believes is the highest finish for that boat at Scholastic nationals. None of the boys team’s boats advanced to grand finals. The senior 4 and lightweight 8 boats each failed to advance from their heats, while the junior 4, the lightweight 4 and the See ROWING, page C2

Athletes believe sports help them become better people For the 17th consecutive summer, I have chosen to ask some of the top central Ohio high school athletes who will be seniors in the fall to share their thoughts on a variety of topics. Enjoy the summer and enjoy hearing from these talented young people. As in the past, the first question is: What have sports done in making you the person you are today? Jake Blankenship, Gahanna, pole vault: “Without sports I wouldn’t be anything near what I am today. Sports keep me very active and I have been that way throughout my life.” Jimmy Gammill, New Albany, football: “Sports have helped me learn to overcome challenges and adversities.

Sports have also shown me that you need to work hard to achieve your goals. For me, sports are a way to form friendships and I have found that teams strengthen bonds beLARRY tween people because LARSON you have worked so hard together.” Napoleon Bell, Hartley, football and wrestling: “From sports I have learned discipline and the true value of being selfless. A team can only be successful when no one is concerned with who gets the credit.”

Mary Wells, Westerville South, bowling: “Sports have improved my self-confidence and helped me stay motivated. Also, sports have taught me how to win and lose gracefully and have taught me time management.” Faith Washington, Reynoldsburg, track: “Sports have been a benchmark for me in my development. They have created discipline in my life, especially from the mental side of things. I have learned that you have to work hard to get things done both in the classroom and in sports workouts.” Michela Paradiso, Upper Arlington, soccer and basketball: “Sports have brought out the best in me by allowing me to be competitive.

I absolutely love playing soccer and basketball with a passion. I can’t imagine my life without the opportunity to compete day in and day out.” Chase Delande, Hilliard Davidson, football and wrestling: “For me it is really simple. Sports have made me a disciplined kid and a hard worker.” Austin Cuervo, St. Charles, golf: “Sports have taught me how to discipline myself through practice and dedication. Sports have taught me respect and honor, to honor those greats in front of us and to respect them and their accomplishments. As an athlete, sports make me get up in the morning and they give me something to

work for. The conditioning, training and practice have groomed who I am today.” Morgan Ransom, Columbus Academy, golf: “Golf is a lot like life. It has taught me the importance of self-determination, work ethic and honesty.” Next week, the student-athletes will discuss how they balance practices and games with studying and keeping up their grades. I’ll see you at a game. Larry Larson is a former athletics director at Grandview High School. He can be heard as “Mr. High School Sports” on WTVN 610 AM.

Among those expected to return are Epitropoulos, Kompa, juniors Sam Colachis, Chase Dunivan, Ryan McSheffery and Victor Pataky and sophomore Greg Hickey. “We made some tremendous improvement,” coach Dale Hartney said. “We were an extreme-

In addition to Hansel, expected to return are juniors Molly Groza and Maggie Morrison and sophomore Carly Tovell on defense, junior Morgan Fulwider at goalkeeper, juniors Roo Cotter, Lauren Drake, Kate Eastwood, Rachel Marsh and Erin Steen and sophomores Samantha Farwick, Sydney Farwick, Macauley Mikes and Abbey Stricharczuk in the midfield and juniors Abby Dugger, Sally Holbert and Zane Petosa and freshman Armonde Moore on attack. Holbert was first-team allleague and all-region and second-team all-state, and Hansel was first-team all-league and all-

region. Samantha Farwick was second-team all-league and allregion, Sydney Farwick was second-team all-league and honorable mention all-region, Morrison was second-team all-league and Drake was honorable mention all-league. “We lost three seniors who played a lot of different roles on our team, but we’re coming back with the majority of our team,” Rocheleau said. “We’re looking forward to developing them and moving forward and winning a state championship.”

freshman 8 boats all advanced to semifinals. In past seasons, UA also competed in the USRowing Youth Nationals, which was held June 10-12, but the Midwest Junior qualifier for that event was held the same weekend (May 21-22) as the Midwest qualifier for the SRAA regatta. Forced to choose, the Bears elected to compete in the high school-only event. The boys squad had a combined 40 athletes among its freshman and sophomore classes. “Our lightweight 4 was close, but they didn’t have enough to push into the finals,” said Chris Swartz, who completed his 19th season leading the program. “Our lightweight 8 was all sophomores, so we’re looking forward to having a couple lightweight 8s next year.” While the girls team had no seniors during the spring season, the boys will lose six in captains Perry Kleinhenz and Grant Schick as well as Eric Bleich, Paul Mandell and David Perez and coxswain Anne Ferrell, who competed for the boys team. Next year’s boys captains are juniors James Lucks, Addison Moore and Teddy Thompson. Other key juniors this season were Keith Gramila, Jake Johnston and Zach Politz. •After the Westerville high school club rowing team’s boys lightweight 8 finished 10th in the

USRowing Youth Nationals a year ago, the eligible returnees were left wanting more. This year’s competitors were more satisfied after the national regatta held June 10-12 on Melton Hill Lake in Oak Ridge, Tenn., where the boat placed fourth (6 minutes, 25.65 seconds) on the final day of the event. The finish matched a program record for Westerville with the 2008 boys lightweight 8, which also placed fourth at youth nationals. Competing on the boat were seniors David Caspers, Matt Caspers, Grant Mohar and Matt Murdock, juniors Danny Just, Jon Weiss and coxswain Kevin Heppner, sophomore Patrick Lecorgne and freshman Ryan Kesselring. “We had a good weekend for a small-town club,” boys coach Matt Chase said. “We had hoped to get on the medal stand by getting in the top 3, but it’s difficult with a small squad to get that high. We were going head-tohead with a team like Canisius out of Buffalo, which has 80 boys on its varsity men’s squad, and I’ve got 14. “A year ago, we were 10th in the nation and after the event the boys kind of cornered me and asked how they could do better. I said, ‘It’s hard.’We’ve definitely improved.” Also competing for Westerville were its boys varsity 4, its girls varsity 8 and its girls lightweight 8.

The boys varsity 4 finished first in the B-Final in 6:54.82 to place seventh overall. Rowing on the boat were seniors Jeremy Sobiech, Mike Tarnapoll and Hunter Lecorgne, junior Ben Leonard and junior coxswain Taylor Gainey. The girls varsity 8 of seniors Ashley Bauer, Anna Lind, Cara Linse and coxswain Amanda Poll, juniors Victoria Langwasser, Tatiana Lundstrom, Boston Shields and Mary Stump and sophomore Jackie Huddle was second in the C-Final in 7:12.76 to place 14th overall. The girls lightweight 8 of seniors Alison Edwards and Sarah Scott and coxswain Alex Sawatzki, junior Liz Akin and Gracie Bachmann, sophomores Grace Busick, Kaitlyn Cantrell and Delaney West and freshman Kelsey Michely placed third in the CFinal in 7:39.42 for 15th overall. At youth nationals last year, Westerville had two boys boats but no girls boats. “We had such a bad season with having two of our regattas canceled,” girls coach Trish Chase said. “I really didn’t know how to gauge where they were and I thought we did pretty much what we should have. They looked very strong and in their final races they did extremely well. After not being at youth nationals last year, we were happy to get these boats there.”

Area players preparing for Cap City contest By JARROD ULREY ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Grove City High School graduate Luke Smurthwaite hasn’t forgotten his previous experience with Briggs football coach Derek Katris. The year before Katris took over the Bruins in 2009, he served as an assistant with the Dawgs junior varsity team and worked with Smurthwaite and the rest of the team’s offense. Over the next two seasons, Smurthwaite developed into one of central Ohio’s top quarterbacks. He helped Grove City Christian to a Division VI state semifinal in 2009 when Grove City didn’t have fall sports and passed for more than 2,300 yards last fall in the Dawgs’ return season. He signed in February to play for Kent State. Smurthwaite is expected to see significant time at quarterback Saturday, June 18, at Westerville Central as a member of the West all-stars, which will be coached by Katris in the second Cap City Senior Bowl presented by “My sophomore year, (Katris) took care of the j.v. team and he completely ran the offense,” Smurthwaite said.

“We ran a whole bunch of crazy formations, but at the same time, he wouldn’t do it if it didn’t work.” Smurthwaite is expected to be one of four players from Grove City who will be reunited with Katris, along with Bobby Brown (OL), Ken Reichle (LB) and his brother, Christian Smurthwaite (WR/DB). Luke Smurthwaite also played in the Ohio North-South All-Star Classic on April 22. Others listed on the West roster include Hilliard Davidson’s Logan Backstrom (OL) and Isa Tate (LB), Ready’s Demetrius Clark (RB), Columbus West’s Garryt Abfalter-Scott (WR), Dublin Scioto’s Jerry Miles (LB), Grandview’s Dan Satterthwaite (OL/DL) and Whetstone’s Jordan Mitchell (RB/DB). In college, Miles will play for Villanova, Backstrom will play for Kentucky Christian, Clark will play for Ashland and Mitchell and Tate will play for Urbana. Mitchell, who scored 21 touchdowns and rushed for more than 1,800 yards, and Abfalter-Scott, who had 57 catches for 821 yards, were two of the City League’s top offensive players last season.

At a glance •What: Cap City Senior Bowl •When: 7:30 p.m. Saturday, June 18 •Where: Westerville Central High School •Cost: $6 pre-sale, $8 at the gate. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Autism Speaks ( •Coaches: East all-stars — Jeff Pharion, St. Charles; West all-stars — Derek Katris, Briggs

“I’m really excited about it,” Katris said. “I’ve got a couple coaches from the Briggs staff who are going to help me, and it’s an opportunity to do something I haven’t done before. I’ll be working with some of the kids from Grove City that I worked with when I was an assistant there. Jordan Mitchell ran for 250 yards when (Whetstone) played against us (in a 27-21 overtime win by Briggs last season). Demetrius Clark lives right down the road.” The West all-stars lost to the East team 22-0 in last year’s game. The event originally was formed as the City League All-Star game in 2008 but was expanded to include players from throughout central Ohio and had its name changed last summer. In addition to having players who

live in the eastern portion of Columbus, the East all-star roster will have two players from Ashland High School who have plans to play in college. Marcus Fuller was the quarterback last season for Ashland, which lost to Marion-Franklin 12-7 in Week 3 of the regular season but went on to make the Division II, Region 5 playoffs. His father, Dan Fuller, is an assistant at Ashland and an acquaintance of game director Anthony Murphy. Marcus Fuller will play football for Brown University and prep teammate Cody Hickey (OL) will play for Mount Union. Others expected to compete for the East all-stars who have committed to play in college include Westerville South’s Jayshon Jackson (RB, Grand Rapids Community College), Marion-Franklin’s Jeremy McCoy (WR/DB, Kent State), Groveport’s Anthony Pruitt (OL/DL, Kent State), New Albany’s Vinnie Cordova (OL, Eastern Illinois) and Westerville Central’s Miles Fisher (DB, Air Force). St. Charles coach Jeff Pharion will lead the East all-stars. “We’re going to keep it real simple offensively, but simple doesn’t mean

we can’t have some fun with it,” Pharion said. “I know we’re getting a kid from Ashland who is going to play football for Brown University.” “I’m just excited about getting a chance to play football again with some kids I know and guys I played against,” Fisher said. “It’ll also be like a warm-up for when I go to Air Force.” •BIG 33 ALL-STARS — Also on Saturday, June 18, the 54th annual Big 33 Game will be held in Hershey Park Stadium in Hershey, Pa., and will feature all-stars from Ohio against allstars from Pennsylvania. Listed on the Ohio roster from central Ohio are Hartley’s Noah Key (RB), Davidson’s J.D. Detmer (K/P) and Keith Heitzman (DL), Westerville Central’s Nick Vannett (TE) and Worthington Kilbourne’s Matt Skura (OL). Detmer and Key will play for Toledo, Heitzman will play for Michigan, Skura will play for Duke and Vannett will play for Ohio State. Last season, Marion-Franklin’s Verlon Reed was named team MVP as Ohio beat Pennsylvania 18-15.

Four area players taken in Major League draft By KURTIS ADAMS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Four players who competed in high school baseball in central Ohio were selected in the Major League Baseball draft on June 6-8. R.L. Eisenbach, a 2006 Newark Catholic graduate, was taken in the 23rd round by the San Diego Padres with the 713th pick. A 6-foot, 180pound left-handed pitcher, Eisenbach played on Division IV state championship teams at Newark Catholic in 2004 and 2006. Jason King, a 2007 Dublin Jerome graduate, was selected in the fourth round by the Detroit Tigers with the 137th selection. A third baseman, King also was picked by the St. Louis Cardinals in the 48th round in 2007, but

he opted to attend Kansas State. Phil Klein, a 2007 Gahanna graduate, was taken in the 30th round (924th overall) by the defending American League champion Texas Rangers. The 6-7, 230-pound right-hander had been pitching at Youngstown State. Ben Thomas, a 2007 Westerville Central graduate, was drafted by the World Series champion San Francisco Giants in the 34th round (1,047th overall). The 6-1, 240-pound first baseman had been playing at Xavier. Eisenbach, who originally made a college commitment to Buffalo, posted a 14-2 record and 1.48 ERA this spring as a senior at Faulkner University in Montgomery, Ala. He led the nation in victories, limiting opponents to a .165 batting average as the Eagles advanced to the NAIA World

Series for the first time. Eisenbach, who also played at Grayson County (Texas) Community College and Lubbock (Texas) Christian, was named the Southern States Athletic Conference’s Pitcher of the Year. Eisenbach is the first player from Newark Catholic to be drafted since Doug Wollenburg and Mark Mesewicz were picked in 1992. Eisenbach played Little League and Babe Ruth ball with current Rangers pitcher and Newark native Derek Holland. “I’m very excited about the opportunity I have to play professional baseball,” Eisenbach said. “I’m ready to get started on the career I’ve always wanted.” King, who has one year of eligibility remaining at Kansas State, said that he expects to forego his final col-

legiate season and sign with the Tigers. “I’m still in shock,” said King, who missed the 2010 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery on his right elbow in October 2009. “I can’t believe it. After everything I went through with my arm and not even playing last year, it’s honestly a dream come true. I couldn’t possibly ask for anything more. I felt that I was going to get picked, but most of the stuff I was hearing, it was like sixth, seventh, eighth round, but to go in the fourth round is an honor.” King led Kansas State in average (.326), home runs (10) and RBI (59) this season. “Jason has so much God-given talent,” Jerome coach Chris Huesman said. “You just knew it was inevitable.” Klein recently completed his

Youngstown State career with a 13-12 record and 5.21 ERA in 59 appearances, which included 40 starts. As a senior this spring, he made a programrecord 15 starts and went 5-5 with a 3.61 ERA in 92 1/3 innings. His 105 strikeouts were the second-highest season total in program history. Thomas was named the Atlantic 10 Conference’s Player of the Year after batting .350 with 15 home runs and 56 RBI as a senior this spring at Xavier. Thomas, who began his college career as a pitcher, left Xavier with a program-record 44 home runs. Frank DiRenna contributed to this story.
