Board, teachers agree on contract By CANDY BROOKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers The Worthington Board of Education unanimously approved a three-year teachers contract June 13, calling its limits on salary increases “historic” and “unprecedented.” The new agreement freezes base salaries for teachers for two years (201112 and 2012-13) and freezes step increases for two years (2012-13 and 201314). During the 2013-14 year, salaries will increase by 0.5 percent and by an additional 0.5 percent if the district achieves

certain prescribed academic goals. The additional raise will be granted if the district meets the two objectives in its Ohio Improvement Process plan developed in 2010 or is rated excellent with distinction in its Ohio Department of Education report card for the 2012-13 school year. The district currently is rated excellent. Teachers already had agreed to taking no increase in base pay this coming school year, but offering to freeze step increases for two years is the part some board members and Superintendent Melissa Conrath called “unprecedented.”

In the past, teachers would receive an annual salary increase plus the step increases, which are based on years of service and additional education. In most years, the step increases averaged 2.5 percent. Generally, the higher step increases are awarded to teachers with less seniority, with few step increases awarded for teachers with more than 15 years of experience. “Our members voted overwhelmingly for this contract, one that will, through step freezes alone, save the district $4 million over four years, even though those step freezes will cost some of our younger

teachers thousands of dollars in lost income,” Worthington Education Association (WEA) president Mark Hill said. WEA is the local teachers union. He told the board the contract is a reflection on the economic conditions that have hit the school district and state. “This contract is a statement that Worthington’s teachers want to be part of the solution to the challenges that face our district,” Hill said. District treasurer Jeff McCuen estimates the district could lose nearly $30 million in state and federal funding by the time the 2014-15 school year begins. The loss is the result of a reduction in

state foundation funding, a loss in onetime federal American Recovery & Reinvestment Act dollars and the continued phase-out of the tangible-personal-property-tax reimbursements. When fully phased out, the loss of tangible-tax reimbursements will result in an annual loss of $15 million. Also, the district could lose $900,000 annually if the current Franklin County reappraisal of property tax values results in a 5-percent decrease, McCuen said. He has said repeatedly that the district must go to voters for an operating levy See CONTRACT, page A2

Don Jones, center, acknowledges the committee members who worked on the Flint Cemetery meditation garden during a dedication ceremony June 12.

Meditation garden is meant for the living By CANDY BROOKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers The new meditation garden at Flint Cemetery was built for the living. With a soothing fountain at the center, cozy benches and a memorial wall, the garden was designed to provide comfort for those in need of a short respite. “We hope this spot brings peace and a sense of compassion,” Don Jones said. “We hope you use this spot before you are placed in one of these spots.” Jones was one of the speakers at the med-

itation garden dedication June 12. The ceremony included a blessing of the grounds by Native Americans, the release of butterflies and a view of the history of Flint Cemetery. On 11 acres tucked behind houses on the north side of Flint Road, the land once was farm lots owned by Worthington’s original settlers. Ozem Gardner purchased the property in 1821. The Gardner family home was built on the site and served as an Underground Railroad shelter during the Civil War. The partial remains of a shed that once concealed

slaves still stands just across the east border of the cemetery. In the 1950s, the Gardner family sold the cemetery to Sharon Township for a dollar. In the 1950s, two additional parcels were acquired. In 1961, the city of Worthington partnered with Sharon Township to form two union cemeteries: Flint and Walnut Grove. With Walnut Grove all but filled, Flint is being developed as a burying ground for local residents. See GARDEN, page A2

High-speed police chase ends in Old Worthington By CANDY BROOKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

A high-speed pursuit through two counties wound through Old Worthington and Riverlea streets and ended with the suspect bailing on Evening Street June 13. Scott Meade, 23, of Whitehall, was apprehended by Columbus police, Franklin County Sheriff’s deputies, and Worthington police on Evening Street near West South Street at approximately 9:15 p.m. Monday. He was charged with aggravated robbery in con-

nection with the robbery of the Marshalls store on U.S. Route 23, just north of Polaris Parkway, at approximately 9 p.m. The Delaware County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of a robbery in progress. The caller said a man with a gun had ordered everyone in the store to the ground. Deputies were able to locate the vehicle after the suspect left the store. He did not stop, leading the officers on a chase through Delaware and Franklin counties. The pursuit went eastbound on Powell Road to Polaris Parkway, southbound on Interstate 71, west-

bound on Interstate 670, northbound on state Route 315, eastbound on Interstate 270, southbound on U.S. Route 23 through Worthington. The pursuit then went into Riverlea, though police on Tuesday were not sure of the exact route. Worthington Chief James Mosic said he knows the suspect was on Olentangy Boulevard at one point. The chase ended on Evening Street where it dead-ends south of West South Street. The suspect tried to flee on foot, but was captured by officers. Worthington police had placed stop sticks on state Route 315 at Route 161, but they did not stop

the pursuit. Mosic said the speeds on 315 were in excess of 100 miles-per-hour, but he did not know how fast the suspect or the officers traveled through Worthington or Riverlea. Police found $2,416 under the driver’s seat of the getaway car, according to Delaware County Sheriff Walter Davis III. When questioned about the gun, the suspect offered to show officers where he disposed of it. Deputies drove him to the area of Lake Club apartments where they located clothing, a book bag, and a fake gun. Cheryl is one of many cats up for adoption at the Cat Welfare Association.

CONTRACT Continued from page A1 in 2012, but on June 13, he acknowledged that the district must have on hand enough funds to cover the cost of a new contract, according to state law. The new contract ends after the 2014 school year. School board members praised the teachers union for the terms of the contract. Board member David Bressman said it could be a shining light for other districts. “Extraordinary times call for extraordinary deals,” he said. Board president Marc Schare said he had struggled with his decision but eventually decided to vote for the contract. He said the contract would delay the impact of Senate Bill 5 and other legislation that could limit the bargaining power of public employee unions. He said he also would like to bargain over other provisions in the contract. That now wouldn’t be not be possible for three more years, he said. S.B. 5 is no slam-dunk, he said, and the advantages of accepting

the contract outweighed any disadvantages. “I believe our staff really stepped up,” Schare said. Community member John Hyre told the board he was disappointed that residents were not given more information about the contract. It was not announced that contract negotiations were under way. All talks were behind closed doors, and information about possible changes was not available prior to the June 13 meeting. “My issue is, the contract process has not been made public,” he said. The public should have been part of the decision-making process, Hyre said. If the board has the information necessary to make such important decisions, why has that information not been shared with the community, he asked. “This contract strikes me as a fait accompli,” he said. ThisWeekNews.com reported on June 9 that the teachers union had made concessions and that the board was expected to vote on them June 13.

GARDEN Continued from page A1 Since 2002, more than 150 trees and native perennials have been planted, roads paved and office space and infrastructure built. A veterans garden was dedicated several years ago. Plans call for a children’s memorial to be constructed next. The meditation garden includes a round sidewalk, grass and fresh landscaping and a structure comprising limestone veneer walls, limestone pillars, bluestone center pavers and a white pergola that someday will be draped with flowering plants. On one side of a memorial wall is the likeness of a four-season tree that is symbolic of the seasons of a person’s life. Artist George Arensberg of Modlich Monument Co engraved it in granite. Names of persons living or deceased could be engraved on the memorial wall. To enquire about memorializing a loved one, call

the cemetery. The grindstones at the entry and made into a fountain in the center were donated by Tom and Debbie Comer. Their yard along the Olentangy River in Worthington is filled with the valuable millstones, abandoned by a mill that served the area in the early 1800s. “For us, it was a tremendous honor to get these,” Courtney Chapman said. Chapman, a member of the cemetery board of trustees, has been an active part of developing

and improving both Walnut Grove and Flint cemeteries. The meditation garden was dedicated to him, and a plaque bearing his name will stand at the entrance. Chapman said he was humbled by the honor but proud of the space that will bear his name. He said he hopes people would go there and sit for a while, to sit and cry or think through a problem, or just to get away. “They are most welcome,” he said.

Drug discount cards available for Franklin County residents To the editor: Three years ago, Franklin County commissioners rolled out a free prescription discount card designed to help residents save money on their prescription medications. Last month, the savings to county residents exceeded $2 million, making Franklin County is the first county in Ohio and the 33rd in the nation to reach this mark. The program is available to Franklin County as a member of the National Association of Counties (NACo). Cards are available at most public buildings, including libraries, county buildings and senior centers. They also come in Spanish. Residents can print a card online or request one be mailed to them at www.franklincountyohio.gov/rx. This program offers real savings to people that need it. Families without health care coverage, or who have gaps in their coverage, are able to save almost a quarter of the cost of their prescriptions. As we pull ourselves out of this recession, this program is helping people get the medication they need and still put food on the dinner table. The cards may be used by coun-

ty residents, regardless of age, income or existing health coverage, and are accepted at most of the county’s pharmacies. A national network of more than 57,000 participating retail pharmacies also honors the Franklin County Prescription Drug Discount card. This card is free and easy to use. Simply present it at point of purchase, and you instantly receive savings.

No ID is needed, and it works almost everywhere. I urge those not participating to pick up a card today and take advantage of an average savings of 24 percent on prescription drugs. Marilyn Brown Franklin County Board of Commissioners, president

Ohio’s history teacher of the year brings past to life for students By ALAN FROMAN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Edison Intermediate/Middle School fourth-grade teacher Diane Runyon has been named the 2011 Ohio History Teacher of the Year by the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History. Runyon, who was nominated for the award by her Edison colleague Betsy Moutvic, is now a finalist for the $10,000 National History Teacher of the Year Award. As a state winner, Runyon will receive a certificate of recognition, a $1,000 award and an invitation to attend a Gilder Lehrman summer seminar. An archive of books and historical resources will also be presented in her name to the Edison school library. Runyon said she strives through classroom projects and activities to bring history alive to her students “and to make it more personal than just a bunch of facts in a book. History is fun.” Three years ago, Runyon built a full-scale prairie schooner covered wagon and placed it in her classroom, where she uses it as a unique visual aid while teaching about westward expansion and immigration. This year, she made an old-fashioned rope bed with a mattress filled with wool to give students a firsthand look at how pioneers slept before the invention of modern bedding. “Last year, we had an Ellis Island lunch, where the students

brought in foods from their family’s nationality,” Runyon said. “We had a lunch set at Ellis Island. Diane Runyon “It’s all about making history as real as possible for the students,” she said. “I have a passion for history and I’m happy when I can help create an interest in history in my students,” Runyon said. “I want them to see history can be a lifelong passion that enriches your life.” As part of a unit on genealogy, Runyon had students research their family histories using resources on the Internet. Students were also assigned during the holiday break to interview the oldest member of their family. Each student created a comic book detailing the history of their family, from their immigration to America up to the present day. “I’m very fortunate to work in a district like Grandview that is open to trying different ways to teach students history,” Runyon said. “Imagine being allowed to put a covered wagon right in the middle of your classroom.” Fourth-grader Micah Clark Moody simply describes Runyon as being “awesome. “We get to do so many cool projects in her class,” she said. Runyon allows students to see both the good and bad of history and the hard times that pioneer

families had to go through, Clark Moody said. “Not to talk badly about other teachers, but sometimes they just tell you about the happy side of history,” she said. By discussing the difficulties their ancestors had to face, students learn “life isn’t just a big party,” Clark Moody said. “It makes history more real and more interesting. We talk about it outside of class.” Fourth-grader Sophie Beacom said she couldn’t believe her eyes when she first walked into Runyon’s class. “I said, ‘Wow, there’s a covered wagon in here,’” she said. Her interest in history has grown during this school year, thanks to her teacher and the various class projects, Beacom said. She particularly enjoyed the genealogy unit, during which her research revealed her family is related to William Brewster, a captain on the Mayflower, and that Ashley Judd is a distant relative. “It’s amazing to find out my family goes back so far, back to the 1600s,” Beacom said. “When we visited my grandparents, it was so great to tell them stories about our family history and see their faces light up.” The history teacher of the year award is co-sponsored by Gilder Lehrman, the History Channel and Preserve America. The national award winner will be announced in the fall. www.ThisWeekNEWS.com

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. Ear fullness usually resolves after a few days, but it is important to determine its underlying cause and rule out a serious infection. If you are experiencing problems with your ears or hearing, call ABSOLUTE HEARING SOLUTIONS today at 614-654-4309 to schedule a complementary hearing & speech evaluation.

The Beat Arts, eats and fun in central Ohio

FAB 5 By Jim Fischer

jfischer@thisweeknews.com pair of pairs of female 1 A artists playing central Ohio in the coming week offers a chance for audiences to have a “saw-herwhen” moment. Gone-beyond-local singer-songwriter Megan Palmer and her band, The Hopefuls, accompanied by former northeast Ohio resident Ashley Brooke Toussant, will play the Rumba Café Friday, June 17. Both have throwback approaches — Palmer’s touched by the folk idiom and Toussant’s more out of the Tin Pan Alley school. Call (614) 268-1841. And be prepared for high levels of alternating tunefulness, cuteness and comedy as Rachel Platten and Bess Rogers bring their respective takes on modern pop songwriting to the Brothers Drake meadery Wednesday, June 22. The duo will perform solo sets and combine their talents as well. Call (614) 388-8675. Columbus Sympho2 The ny Orchestra’s summer Picnic with the Pops concert series opens this Saturday, June 18,

with special guests the Jazz Ambassadors of the United States Army bands. Founded in 1969, the Jazz Ambassadors is a touring big band of active military personnel. Chief Warrant Officer Gordon K. Kippola leads the Jazz Ambassadors — Albert-George Schram, as always, brings his effervescent personality to the CSO podium. Tickets are $20/$8 for lawn seating. Call (614) 228-8600 for tickets or table seating information. This concert begins the orchestra’s last summer season on the lawn at Chemical Abstracts Service. Picnic with the Pops moves to the new downtown Columbus Commons starting next summer. Africa’s The Par3 South lotones are unafraid to twist conventions of modern rock, making things complicated for, say, music writers. For example, just when you want to call the Johannesburg quartet “Killers-esque,” the next tune requires a whole new comparison. Tell you what — you head down to The Basement on Saturday, June 18, and check them out for yourself, and make your own comparisons. The Daylights opens. Tickets are $12. Call 1-800-745-3000.

That said, season nine winner Lee DeWyze seems like a nice guy, is not bereft of talent and is certainly marketable: His contemporary sense of style and Jason Mraz-meets-Bruno Mars adult pop provide built-in audiences. Columbus hosts the first date of his debut headlining tour. DeWyze, with opener Corey Crowder, plays The Basement Sunday, June 19. Tickets are $17. Call 1-800-7453000.

5 Elvis Costello has had a long

career marked by clever, well-crafted and catchy (kitschy?) pop and rock tunes. Dapper and armed with a wicked wit, Costello has aged well, refusing to succumb to the temptation of self-parody for the sake of appeasing an audience. He is, however, bringing back an old favorite — the Spectacular Spinning Songbook — for his latest Elvis Costello and the Imposters tour. A spin of the wheel determines the next song in the set list. The tour stops at Lifestyle Communities Pavilion for an outdoor show Sunday, June 19. Tickets are $45. Call 1-800-745-3000.

bus, so his return to town for this weekend’s Creekside Blues and Jazz Festival — during which he’ll play a gig with modern jazz-hop group Liquid Crystal Project — is a return to the old stomping grounds. “I loved my time in Columbus, loved the city and the people,” Whitted told The Beat of the seven years he spent here, gigging and teaching jazz studies at Ohio State University. “It’s a beautiful (jazz) scene.” In 2001, Whitted moved to Chicago to become director of jazz studies at Chicago State University. He continues to gig, especially throughout the Midwest, and recently released his first album in more than a decade. “I had been playing with some musicians in Chicago and we had developed a sound that was pretty special,” Whitted explained. “I wanted to write some music to sort of put that on display.” Transient Journey made the jazz charts and earned a nomination for Independent Jazz CD of the Year last year. The Creekside gig with Liquid Crystal project will feature primarily that group’s music, but Whitted said he hopes to be able to coordinate his bandmates’schedules enough to book a tour in support of Transient Journey. The Indianapolis, Ind., native came from a musical family (his uncle is trombonist Slide Hampton), and first picked up a trumpet at age 9. “I found it rummaging through a closet,” he recalled. “It was there, so I grabbed it. My brother, Tommy, played, and he helped me with learning notes and melodies and songs even before I could read music.” He pursued a career in music after receiving degrees from DePauw University and Indiana University. His playing style was heavily influenced by Freddie Hubbard, whom he befriended and

often gigged alongside. He has also played with Nancy Wilson, Clark Terry, Branford Marsalis, Jon Faddis, John Mellencamp and Aretha Franklin — to name a few. Teacher, composer, performer, recording artist — Whitted doesn’t consider himself one over the other. “This (all) is what I do. I couldn’t do without any one of them,”

he said. ■ For more on the Creekside Blues and Jazz Festival, read the BeatBlog at www.ThisWeekNews.com/blogs. And make sure to watch our video featuring festival director Karen Eylon and guitarists Steve Wald and Justin Reynolds, this year’s festival’s Rising Star.

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 life-threatening in otherwise healthy children. There are a few types of abnormal heart rhythms, also known as arrhythmias. Tachycardia arrhythmias are charac-

terized by a rapid heart beat, but it is important to realize that a healthy child can easily get his or her NAOMI heart rate KERTESZ above 160 beats per 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.

Wolves happy to prove outsiders wrong By PAUL BATTERSON

According to Worthington Kilbourne High School boys lacrosse coach Drew May, many people outside the program expected his team to face a rebuilding year this spring after reaching the Division I state final the past three seasons. But the Wolves reached the state final again this season, losing to Hudson 14-8 in a game that began June 4 at Westerville Central but was suspended because of bad weather and completed June 5 at Dublin Coffman. “One of the biggest things I’m going to remember about this (season) was proving a lot of people wrong,” said May, whose team finished 17-6 overall. “We certainly weren’t a favorite at the beginning of the season or even in the middle of the year after we lost to Dublin Jerome (8-6 on March 30) and to Upper Arling-

ton (11-9 on May 3). “I heard we were too young and we didn’t have enough experience. I think we put that to rest.” Kilbourne opened the Central Region tournament with a 14-4 win over Westerville South on May 21. It then defeated Olentangy Liberty 8-5 in a regional semifinal on May 25 and Upper Arlington 10-4 in the regional final on May 28 before beating Cincinnati Moeller 6-5 in a state semifinal on June 1. “This season brought us real close together as a family,” jun-

ior midfielder Tae Young Kim said. “We’re like brothers here.” One of the keys to Kilbourne’s postseason run was its defensive play, as it allowed only 18 goals through its first four postseason games. The victory over UA ended the Golden Bears’ streak of 19 consecutive state tournament appearances under coach Ted Wolford. “In the May 3 game, UA had outplayed us in the first half, but we had done a nice job of competing in the second half,” May said. “We made a couple of adjustments in the first half and those things seemed to pay off in the second half the first time we played them. We used the same formula and we were able to get a W at Upper Arlington, which is a rare thing to do.” The Wolves finished third in the OCC-Buckeye Division at 42, behind Jerome (6-0) and Upper See LACROSSE, page C3

Barren left his mark at Academy By FRANK DiRENNA ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Preston Pearson will never forget the impact Columbus Academy football coach Mark Barren had on his life. Under Barren’s guidance, Pearson, a 2011 graduate, became one of the Vikings’ top players, capping his career by being named first-team all-MSLOhio Division and all-district and honorable mention all-state last fall. It was Barren who helped Pearson, a fullback, receive the opportunity to play football at Otterbein University this fall. Pearson and the entire Academy community were stunned by Barren’s death on June 9, two days after he suffered a heart attack while jogging near his Worthington home. Barren, a 1978 Academy graduate, was in intensive care at Riverside Methodist Hospital and never regained consciousness. He was 51. “I talked to coach Barren every day,” Pearson said. “He was always there. Any problems I had, I could talk to him and he would help me.” The school held its commencement ceremony on June 10 and it was a bittersweet day as students, family, faculty and friends celebrated the seniors’ accomplishments and Barren’s life. In memory of Barren, school administrators reserved a chair, donned with an Academy polo shirt and cap, for him during the ceremony. “It was tough, but at the same time, it had a healing factor because we all told stories about coach Barren and how he’s affected our lives,” Pearson said of the ceremony. “We talked about how he was a great person and how he took things serious and was organized, but at the same time, he was still lighthearted and had fun.” The school held a signing ceremony on June 7 to commemorate Pearson’s chance to play at Otterbein. Pearson was grateful that Barren took part in the ceremony and congratulated him on his achievement. Athletics director Dominic Facciolla announced on June 10 that former football coach Jim Collis would return to lead the Vikings. Collis, who also is the school’s baseball coach, guided the football program from 19962006 before stepping down and being replaced by Barren. “I wouldn’t have left the pro-

Thomas’ Andrew Maetzold (left) hands the baton to Armand Austin on June 3 during a heat of the 800-meter relay. The relay, which also included Nana Kyeremeh and Kevin Girgis, went undefeated in finals this season.

Track & Field

Cardinals boys remain motivated By SCOTT HENNEN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Andrew Maetzold will hear the footsteps throughout the offseason. The junior on the Thomas Worthington High School boys track and field team was running the final leg of the 1,600-meter relay, the final event of the Division I state meet on June 4 at Ohio State. Maetzold was passed down the stretch by North Canton Hoover’s Stephen Denissoff and he and juniors Nana Kyeremeh and Armand

Austin and senior Ryan McFarland had to settle for fourth in 3 minutes, 18.48 seconds. Even though Maetzold also was a member of the 800 relay that won the state championship in a program-record 1:27.42, his performance in the 1,600 relay will serve as motivation in the coming months. “I was passed (on the final lap of the 1,600 relay) and that will make me train a lot harder going into next year,” said Maetzold, who teamed with junior Kevin Girgis, Kyeremeh and Austin in the 800 relay.

“I hate to be passed and that will be burning in the back of my mind when I’m working out in the offseason.” The 800 relay went undefeated in finals this season. “We told the athletes that (the first day of the state meet on June 3) was the hardest day and the goal was just to get into the finals,” said coach Andy Cox, who completed his 15th season leading the program. “The stress might not be as high as in the final, but it’s when they run their best. The kids really reacted well.”

Also at state, Austin placed sixth in the 400 (48.86) and the 3,200 relay of seniors Greg Highley, Ray Crook, Dan McGeary and McFarland finished 12th (7:58.25). The Cardinals scored 18 points to tie Cleveland Heights for seventh behind champion Cincinnati LaSalle (36) as 78 teams scored. In the regional meet May 25 and 27 at Pickerington North, Thomas scored 37 points to tie Westerville North for first. See CARDS, page C2

Worthington Kilbourne High School girls track and field coach Chip Seely saw a marked improvement in his team this season, and given the athletes who are expected to return, he’s optimistic about the future of his program. The Wolves scored 61 points in the 13-team Division I, district 3 meet that concluded May

21 at Hilliard Bradley to place sixth behind champion Dublin Scioto (139). That’s a 47-point improvement from the previous year, when they scored 14 points at district. “It’s exciting when you look at points, because we scored 61 this year at district and only 14 last year,” Seely said. “I think we can be just as good next year, if not better, despite losing some really See WOLVES, page C4

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 Capcitypreps.com. “My sophomore year, (Katris) took care of the j.v. team and he completely ran the offense,” Smurthwaite said.

CARDS Continued from page C1 New Albany and Olentangy Liberty tied for third with 33 points as 39 teams scored. The regional title was the Cardinals’ first since 1996. Finishing first were the 1,600 relay of Kyeremeh, Austin, McFarland and Maetzold (3:19.1), Austin in the 400 (48.41) and the 800 relay of Girgis, Maetzold, Austin and Kyeremeh (1:27.81), and the 3,200 relay of Highley, Crook, McGeary and McFarland was fourth (7:58.15). Also competing at regional were Girgis in the 200 (seventh, 22.98), Kyeremeh in the 200 (ninth, 22.71), McFarland in the 800 (13th, 2:00.71), freshman Michael Wood in the high jump (tied for 10th, 6 feet) and freshman Jalen Wells in the high jump (no height). Kyeremeh also qualified for regional in the 100 but did not compete in the event. The top four finishers in each regional event advanced to state. Thomas won the 16-team district 1 meet that concluded May 21 at Hilliard Bradley, scoring 87 points to finish ahead of runnerup Pickerington North (78.5). In the OCC-Central meet May 12 and 14 at Hilliard Davidson, the Cardinals were third (129.5) behind Davidson (170.5) and Dublin Coffman (158.5) and ahead of Hilliard Darby (96.5), Upper Arlington (49), Central Crossing (20), Worthington Kilbourne (19) and Westland (13). Austin won the 400 in a leaguerecord 49.05, eclipsing the previous mark of 49.14 set by Coffman’s E.J. Williams in 2010. The 1,600 relay of Kyeremeh, Austin, McFarland and Maetzold was first in a league-record 3:22.59, eclipsing the previous mark of 3:23.72 set by Davidson in 2010, and the 800 relay of Girgis, Maetzold, Austin and Kyeremeh set the record for all-OCC divisions by winning in 1:28.38, breaking the previous mark of 1:28.5 set by Darby in 2006. Also finishing first was Wood in the high jump (6-2). Thomas loses nine seniors, including Crook, Highley, McFarland, McGeary and Mike Pisching. “The seniors were smart people who knew what to do on and off the track,” Maetzold said. “We’re definitely going to miss

“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.

“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.

state. She had the chance to go down to the (OSU) track and work out on it (on June 2) and she got to take in the atmosphere. Next year, her nerves will be more calm and we’ll see what she can do.” The Cardinals did not score at state as Reynoldsburg won the title with 47 points. At regional, Thomas scored 7.5 points to finish 27th behind champion Reynoldsburg (88) as 40 teams scored. Frazier advanced to state in the 100 hurdles by placing fourth (15.25). Also competing at regional were senior Rachel Erb in the pole vault (tied for sixth, 10-0), sophomore Cheyenne Buckingham in the 3,200 (11th, 11:56.42), junior Madison Girardi in the high jump (13th, 4-8), senior Danielle Henderson in the 200 (14th, 27.36) and the 400 relay of senior Abi Agyepong, Erb, Henderson and Frazier (11th, 50.75).

ahead of Kilbourne (55), Central Crossing (26) and Westland (10). The only first-place finisher was Frazier in the 100 hurdles (15.51). The Cardinals lose five seniors, including Agyepong, Erb and Henderson. “This was my first year (leading the program) and these seniors were instrumental in any success that I had as a coach,” Scholl said. “They were there for me and these girls tried to establish a family atmosphere. “Because our team was so young, they really looked up to these seniors and we will miss their leadership. I will miss them because they were my first group of seniors as a head coach and they will always be special to me.” Among those expected to return are Buckingham, Frazier, Girardi, juniors Kendall Kwiatkowski (sprints/middle distance) and Emily Nordquist (middle distance), sophomore Annie McFarland (long jump) and freshmen Chandler Adamaitis (sprints) and Shay Davis (sprints). “We had girls get a lot of experience this year and, because of that, they will surprise some people in the next couple of years,” Scholl said.

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 between people because 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 LARRY by allowing LARSON 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.

them next year.” “Our seniors did a great job for us,” Cox said. “They played an important role by being positive, encouraging and they looked after underclassmen. They did everything our coaching staff expects from seniors and that was giving leadership and guidance to their younger teammates. “Mike Pisching did a wonderful job in the shot and discus for us and also recruited a couple other guys to throw and give us some depth. We had four seniors on the (3,200 relay) who gave their all and were great leaders. We really will sorely miss these seniors.” Among those expected to return are Austin, Girgis, Kyeremeh, Maetzold, Wells, Wood, juniors Alex Rentz (sprints) and Will Spernoga (throws), sophomore Anton Dela Fuente (sprints) and freshman Akwasi Boeham (sprints). “We hope the younger kids have seen the tradition of this year’s upperclassmen and they’re striving for excellence,” Cox said. “We have a very good freshman class and I hope they saw a little of what they need to do to be successful.” •The girls team had one competitor at state in Frannie Frazier. The sophomore was disqualified after a false start in a heat of the 100 hurdles on June 3. “(The false start) really broke her heart,” said coach Evie Scholl, who completed her first season leading the program. “I told Frannie that she was only a sophomore and she had already made it to

Arlington (5-1) and ahead of Hilliard Davidson (3-3), Thomas Worthington (2-4), Coffman (15) and Dublin Scioto (0-6). Kilbourne finished second in the “B” bracket in the MSLCA tournament on May 6-7 at Hudson Western Reserve Academy, defeating Sewickley (Pa.) Academy 14-3 and losing to Pittsburgh Mount Lebanon 10-9. The Wolves lose six seniors in goalkeeper Alex Wylly (196 saves), defenders Kevin Carey (27 ground balls), Nate LaBine (47 ground balls) and Domenic Luckino and midfielders Matt Malone and Payden Pierce. Pierce, a University of Jacksonville recruit, and Wylly, who signed with Lycoming College in Williamsport, Pa., both were second-team all-league and second-team all-MSLCA. Wylly also was second-team all-state. Luckino, a Wittenberg recruit, was honorable mention all-league. “Nate and Payden were the only seniors who were returning major contributors from last year’s team,” May said. “Most of the seniors that played were young and inexperienced, but one of the

things that they brought to the team was they didn’t want their season to end.” Offensively, Kilbourne expects to return its top scorers in junior attackers Charlie Bassani (36 goals, 24 assists), James Meager (34 goals, 25 assists) and Ryan Pritchett (31 goals, 19 assists), junior midfielders Nick Bortolani (17 goals, 18 assists, 36 ground balls) and Brian Miller (30 goals, 17 assists), sophomore midfielder Matt Wylly (23 goals, 8 assists) and Kim.

WOLVES Continued from page C1 good senior leadership.” The Wolves lose seven seniors, including Courtney Green, Desiree´ Kaleopaa, Dani Kaufman, Darby McMullen and Grace Wesner. “Dani Kaufman was the only track athlete at Kilbourne — boy or girl — to be a four-year letterwinner this year,” Seely said. “She was named our team MVP and also won the Wolf Award for sportsmanship and integrity. “Grace Wesner was a captain for us and a good voice in the locker room. (Kaufman and Wesner) are two distance runners who will be difficult to replace. Darby has been our best female high-jumper for four years and she will be playing volleyball at Washington and Jefferson (in Washington, Pa.) and Courtney Green came back after not running as a sophomore or junior and anchored both the (400meter relay) and (800 relay) and that will be tough to replace.” Seely said the Wolves had more depth in the throwing events than they have had in recent years, with Kaleopaa, Noll, junior Jennifer Keller and sophomore Hannah Lovegrove competing in the shot put and discus. “Hannah Noll and Desiree´ Kaleopaa gave us some throwing depth we haven’t had since I have been here,” said Seely, who completed his fourth season leading the program. “You add in Jennifer Keller and Hannah Lovegrove and that gave us four highly competitive throwers.” The Wolves expect to return all three of their regional qualifiers in junior Erica Rodriguez, sophomore Taylor Hill and Lovegrove. In the regional meet May 25 and 27 at Pickerington North, Hill finished sixth in the 400 in 1 minute, 0.13 seconds, Lovegrove was 12th in the discus (99 feet, 7 inches) and Rodriguez competed in the long jump (16th, 15-3) and pole vault (tied for 11th, 9-6). The top four finishers in each regional event advanced to the state meet June 3-4 at Ohio State. Kilbourne scored three points at regional to tie Beechcroft, Brookhaven and Lancaster for 33rd behind champion Reynoldsburg (88) as 40 teams scored. In the OCC-Central Division meet May 12 and 14 at Hilliard Davidson, the Wolves scored 55 points to finish sixth, behind Dublin Coffman (164.5), Davidson (131), Upper Arlington (100), Hilliard Darby (88) and Thomas Worthington (84.5) and ahead of Central Crossing (26) and Westland (10). Loveday won the discus (995) and Kaleopaa was fourth in the shot put (30-9 1/4). Hill was fourth in the 400 (1:00.47) and sixth in the long jump (14-11 1/4). Sophomore Paige Martinski was fifth in the pole vault (8-6) and Green was sixth in the 100 (13.31). The 400 relay of freshman Abby Hunt, sophomore Allie Riebel, freshman Megan Thompson and Green was fourth (52.59), the 800 relay of sophomore Allison Hooley, Riebel, Hill and Green was fifth (1:52.38), the 1,600 relay of Hooley, Riebel, Thompson and Hill was fifth (4:15.05) and the 3,200 relay of Wesner, sophomore Jenna Boue´, Thompson and Kaufman was sixth (10:46.11). “We have a lot of talent coming back,” Seely said. “We have some good young athletes and we have several kids going to camps this summer and that will help. I’m really looking forward to next year.” •The boys team had one regional qualifier in junior Jeremie Nsumbu, who finished 14th in the long jump (20-1 1/4). The Wolves did not score at regional.

Academy’s Upper School. “Mark is Columbus Academy,” Facciolla said. “You couldn’t find anybody more passionate about Columbus Academy and our sports programs. He just loved it. He came with a passion that’s just hard to parallel. He loved everything he did.” Barren was a three-sport standout at Academy. He went on to earn degrees in economics and education from Wittenberg University and a master’s in sports administration from Ohio State, where he was a graduate assistant for the football team under then-coach Earle Bruce, according to Academy’s website. He later followed in the footsteps of his father, the late Dan Barren, who was an Academy math teacher and the football coach from 1977-84. Mark Barren’s funeral was held on June 15 at Saint Michael Catholic Church in Worthington. Burial was private. Barren and his wife, Jennifer, have three sons, and they all attend Academy. Jennifer teaches in Academy’s Lower School.

It’s bigger than life. No one can put their arms around why this has happened. It’s a tragic thing and difficult times.” Barren helped form Academy’s boys lacrosse program, which started at the middle school level this spring and won the state championship.

Thanks Susie. Hey Bob? Where did you get that brand new black Chrysler 200? LOOKS JUST LIKE THE ONE EMINEM IS DRIVING!

I’ve heard a lot of good things about Bob Caldwell... Did they treat you right?

I love this Chrysler 200. I just got it at Bob Caldwell.

Did you get a good deal? I heard something about a “Leave Your Wallet at Home” Sale...

I got an UNBELIEVABLE deal! I leased it with no money down and it was only $269/mo +tax!

ABSOLUTELY!

They sure did. It was a very easy process - The whole sales department treated me GREAT.

Do you know if they have other great deals going on with other vehicles?

Their lot was full of Minivans, Trucks, Jeeps and a lot of low-priced, brand-new sporty cars. You should go visit them and get something for yourself....
