NCR to continue expansion at FCV By CHRIS BOURNEA ThisWeek Community Newspapers

NCR has acted as FCV’s managing agent since June 2009. In spring 2010, FCV filed for bankruptcy, a process that NCR has acted as FCV’s managing involved negotiating $90-million in seagent since June 2009. In spring cured debt, primarily with four banks, 2010, FCV filed for bankruptcy, a and a construction loan of approximateprocess that involved negotiating $90- ly $58-million. million in secured debt, primarily with Jim Balthaser, chairman of the FCV four banks, and a construction loan board of directors, attributed the bankof approximately $58-million. ruptcy filing to delays in completion of the construction project and costs incurred units for assisted living and Alzheimer’s due to the delays, as well as lower occupancy rates because of the national ecocare.

National Church Residences has announced that it has become the financial sponsor of First Community Village (FCV), a 30-acre retirement community located at 1800 Riverside Drive and a longtime pillar of the community. FCV was established in 1963 by First Community Church. In 2004, FCV began construction on a new, 86-unit independent living facility, The Chelsea, and other

nomic downturn. In the past several months, FCV has restructured its debt under more favorable terms, thereby restoring its overall financial health, Balthaser said. “With NCR as the new sponsor organization, our plan is to begin phase two of the campus improvements, which began in 2004, to include the construction of additional manor homes, as well as upgrades to the Healthcare Center and the garden apartments,” Balthaser said in a news release. “In addition, our affiliation

with NCR enables us to provide an even larger array of services to central Ohio seniors.” One of those services will be home health care provided by InCare, an NCR affiliate company that provides pain and medication management, tube feeding and catheter care, wound care and sterile dressing changes and other services. “It allows seniors to age in place and keep them in their homes for as long as See EXPANSION, page A2

Upper Arlington crews handle winter’s first snowfall easily By GARY BUDZAK ThisWeek Community Newspapers Plowing the streets of Upper Arlington after the first major snowfall on Dec. 12 “went real well,” according to public service manager Buddy Caplinger. “We started Sunday around 9:30 a.m., and then ran until 5:30 p.m. and then we let those guys go for the day,” Caplinger said. They finished around 3:30 p.m. the next day, clearing all the streets after they were covered again overnight. “We’re from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. every day, that’s regular,” Caplinger said. “But with snow, we go into shifts and rotate the guys as we go in and out as we go, depending on the length of the storm.”

Caplinger said just 7 of the city’s 17 plows were used because the storm wasn’t severe. “We try to be fiscally as fit as we can with the use of equipment and men that we get out there per storm,” Caplinger said. Overtime is paid as necessary. The first snow struck just after the public services department had completed leaf collection for the season. The city’s policy says plowing begins after 3 inches of snowfall. About 200 tons of salt were used, which Caplinger said is average for that type of storm. Prior to the storm, the salt barn was completely full with 1,700 tons of salt. Caplinger said the city usually goes through 3,000 tons in a year. Last winter saw “an exorbitant amount of snow,” Caplinger said. “We’ll have to make adjustments if we have that type of winter

again. Hopefully we won’t have to use that much salt, and we do pre-treat our roads with brine to help with not using as much salt.” During last February’s record snowfall, 85 percent of respondents to an online survey said local road crews did “an exceptional job” of snow removal. “Our policy is once the snow event starts, depending on the type of snow, to get the roads cleared within eight hours,” Caplinger said. All of the city’s 205 lane miles get cleared, with the main (arterial) streets (such as Arlington Avenue and Zollinger Road), getting the top priority. Next are the secondary (collector) streets (such as Andover Road and Windham Road). Lastly, residential streets are See SNOWFALL, page A3

It’s been a couple of years since Upper Arlington High School added a senior capstone project as a graduation requirement, replacing the school’s longstanding senior thesis, and it seems to be achieving its goals. The capstone provided a way to “increase some of the rigor in what the students were doing,” said Cathy Johnson, a social studies teacher who coordinates the capstone program with language arts teacher Julie Otten. Students are evaluated on a rubric that emphasizes 21st century skills, better preparing them for the workforce, Johnson said. “All of the students have to first identify an essential question that guides their research and the entire project for the year,” she said. Students are encouraged to seek out projects involving subjects “that they haven’t studied in school or that they really love.” The essential question is one of tenets of the capstone project. Projects must also benefit the larger community; include both experiential and text-based research; incorporate collaboration; and demonstrate a multi-faceted approach and significant academic rigor. Students work with mentors throughout the year, many of whom are from the Upper Arlington community, Johnson said. “We encourage them to find a mentor that has expertise in the

mentors to foster future partnerships. This year, the Ohio Nurses Association contacted the school, hoping to work with capstone students to establish a public relations campaign. Students complete the project in their 12th grade language arts and government classes, and are given release time depending on their individual schedules. They may apply for grants through the school if their project requires funding, Johnson said. “The greatest thing for me to see is the growth from the beginning of the year to the end,” she said. “To be able to see them plan and implement a yearlong project . . . there is so much growth in the twists and turns that happen along the way.” Current projects include a student who is examining education reform and will attend an e-tech conference in the spring, and another who is pursuing patenting an invention. Johnson said she even had a student apologize for being a few minutes late to class, after having used release time to watch eye surgery. “It runs the gamut from real science type kids to anything and everything the students want to pursue,” Johnson said. “Some are more service oriented.” All capstone students will give a presentation on their projects, See CAPSTONE, page A2

20 Chinese students will Christmas Eve kick off their New Year in UA Churches offer varied By ANDREW MILLER ThisWeek Community Newspapers

When Chinese New Year rolls around, Upper Arlington residents will have the opportunity to celebrate with 20 visitors from Beijing. Twenty Chinese high school students are taking part in a Winter Camp program through the Beijing New Bridge (BNB) Foreign Language School. Between Jan. 27 and Feb. 5, Upper Arlington High School and the Upper Arlington Public Library, along with Ohio State University and Metro Early College High School, will host cultural exchange events with the Chinese

students. The visiting students will be introduced to the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) programming at Metro High School and college level science classes at OSU. In addition, there will be to field trips to several area museums and cultural sites around central Ohio. The events are meant to provide the Chinese students with an immersion in American culture and to allow them to share Chinese culture with local residents, said Ruth McNeil, the library’s community affairs manager. McNeil said she was contacted by BNB coordinators Professor Lei Bao and Upper Arlington

resident Jerry Weekly about the opportunity to work with the students. “After hearing about the opportunity, I absolutely said yes!” she said. “We (UAPL) felt the timing of this was perfect to share in the students’celebration of the Chinese New Year and open that up to the community.

service styles, hours By GARY BUDZAK ThisWeek Community Newspapers If your church’s Christmas Eve services don’t fit into your family’s holiday schedule, it might provide a good opportunity to attend services at another church in the Hilliard or Upper Arlington area. “We have people who come to our 11 p.m. late service because that’s part of their family tradition, but their church’s service is at 7,” said Hilliard United Methodist Church Pastor David Ziegel. Located between the Sanctuary Building and Warehouse 839, Ziegel said that his church offers seven Christmas Eve services, from 11 a.m.

to 11 p.m. Like many churches, HUMC has three types of services: family-oriented (the kids can come and the service may last only 45 minutes), contemporary (which may include a Christian rock praise band), and traditional (with candlelight and/or communion). Here are what some other randomly chosen churches in Hilliard and Upper Arlington have planned for Christmas Eve and the rest of the weekend: • Upper Arlington Lutheran Church has a total of 10 services among its three campuses, said spokeswoman Barb Wills. In addition, it will hold See CHURCHES, page A3

EXPANSION Continued from page A1 possible,” said NCR spokesman Patrick Higgins. NCR decided to invest in FCV because of FCV’s long history in the community and proximity to NCR’s headquarters at 2335 North Bank Drive in Upper Arlington, Higgins said. “We have very similar missions,” he said. “They’ve been around for 47 years. We’ve been around for 50. They’re literally right down the street from us. We wanted to preserve the campus and preserve the legacy. All around, it was a good match.” FCV’s 350 employees will retain their jobs and the retirement community will benefit from NCR’s organizational, operational and financial strength, said Donald Gardiner, longtime FCV board member and former board chair. “Based on NCR’s strength, reputation, and national recognition as a leader in the senior housing and services industry, the board made a thoughtful, strategic decision to bring NCR to the table,” Gardiner said. “We’re confident that our residents, staff and families are in strong, capable hands, and that NCR will continue to enhance First Community Village’s rich history of resident service.” Francille Firebaugh, an FCV resident since April 2008, mayor of the village and president of the FCV resident council, said NCR’s involvement will enable FCV to continue to grow. “From the start of NCR’s involvement as the village’s managing agent, it’s been a very positive feel,” Firebaugh said. “NCR’s great reputation as a professional, caring manager is extremely encouraging to First Community Village residents. “NCR is a strong organization. This is a good thing. We’re ready for this change.” As part of the restructuring of FCV’s debt, liens preventing new construction have been cleared, enabling NCR to proceed with the construction of 32 new manor homes, Higgins said. NCR plans to break ground on the $8-million project upon receipt of permits from the city of Upper Arlington, which NCR officials plan to apply for early next year.

Continued from page A1 which must be supported with a technology component, on May 26. Students in the International Baccalaureate program complete a capstone project as well, which includes three components: an extended essay; a theory of knowledge class; and creativity, action and service (CAS) activities. The extended essay is a research paper of up to 4,000 words, which is “much like a university experience,” said Cynthia Ballheim, AP/IB coordinator. “Theory of Knowledge represents about 100 hours of classwork between the junior and senior year,” she said. “It’s a transdiscplinary course that ties the entire program together.” The class includes a monthly forum, open to the public. “We bring in an expert or speaker to talk to us; someone we wouldn’t ordinarily come across in the high school milieu,” Ballheim said. The CAS requirement is “meant to stretch students in the same way the academics stretch them,” she said. “How can they be creative; find a need somewhere and fill it?”

Students receive a grade on their extended essay and theory of knowledge class through the IB program. “There is no score for CAS,” Ballheim said. “It’s an altruistic part of life. It’s something they don’t get credit for or a grade on.” Students who have graduated from the IB program will come back to UAHS for a forum at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 6, to be held in the school’s learning center. The graduates will discuss the transition from high school to university, particularly addressing what parts of the IB capstone best prepared them for college, Ballheim said.

CHURCHES one at 10 a.m. Christmas Day at the Lytham Road location in Upper Arlington. “It’s much less attended,” Wills said. “They tend to be families without young kids, because getting kids rounded up on Christmas morning is kind of hard to do.” • In contrast, Upper Arlington Grace will only have a 5 p.m. Christmas Eve service, said worship director Bob Gardner. “I think the idea is we’d rather have one full house than two halffull houses,” Gardner said. “We intentionally do it earlier, because people traditionally in our community and our church like to schedule their dinner after Christmas Eve service.” • Mountview Baptist Church at Fishinger and Mountview roads will have a 6 p.m. Christmas Eve service and a 7:30 p.m. candlelight service, due to the number of people who attend, said administrative assistant Lynn Swonger. “We get a lot of additional people,” Swonger said. “We send a mailer out to neighborhoods to invite them to come that evening so we got a few who come for that (and) families that are here visiting in town, we have a lot of relatives of people who attend here.” • Riverside United Methodist Church on Zollinger Road will have three Christmas Eve services: a 5:30 p.m. for families in the sanctuary, 7:30 p.m. contempo-

The sanctuary needed its roof ripped off after 24 of the 31 trusses broke and the congregation spent 7 months worshiping in the fellowship hall. • The Church Next Door on Feder Road will have identical Christmas Eve services at 4 and 5:30 p.m. to accommodate families who have to travel afterwards. What’s unique for the church is the Jingle Jam Family Fun at 9 and 10:45 a.m. Dec. 26. “It’s basically to have fun and to celebrate the birth of Christ in more of a kid-centric way,” Pastor Doyle Jackson said of the Jingle Jam. “We’ll have games — they’re kind of like Nickelodeon games where the whole audience participates.” • Scioto Ridge United Methodist Church on Dublin Road will have five Christmas Eve services, said director of welcoming Lynda Weiss. “The 3 p.m. is a celebration of

said. “Also one of the things that we see a lot here is that we have a lot of runners at 2 or 3 a.m. (They’re) out on the roads while it’s snowing and we’re plowing.” Although Caplinger understands that the runners and bicyclists would rather tread where tires have gone over the snow, he said they should use the sidewalk for their safety.

the Christmas story by and for families,” Weiss said. “All children are invited to come dressed as a character from the Christmas story — shepherd, stable animal, wise man — and be a part of our Christmas story tableaux.” • St. Brendan the Navigator Church on Dublin Road will have a Blue Christmas Mass at 6:30 p.m. on Christmas Eve, said Sister Patricia McMahon. “It’s more subdued and it’s been prepared particularly for people who might be seeking a more reflective liturgical experience,” McMahon said. “Sometimes the Christmas season can be very sad and painful for persons who live with a serious illness, who have lost a loved one, a job or whatever is happening that Christmas that is not joyful. It’s more a matter of tidings of comfort and quiet joy.” • Covenant Presbyterian Church at Ridgecliff and Redding roads will have three Christmas Eve services: 5 p.m. family, 8 p.m. candlelight Lessons and Carols, and 11 p.m. candlelight communion. The 5 p.m. service features a children’s pageant. “We read the scriptures from the stories from the two different gospels that weave together the Christmas story,” said Katie Kinnison, director of Christian education. “The kids sing in between the scriptures. The kids are great on the chorus, but the adults help them out on the verses. “The children can come up and they dress as shepherds or angels, although one year, we had a Thomas the Tank Engine.”

Commentary and opinion



Animal control officer position will be missed To the editor: I was sad to see the city council voted not to keep our animal control officer. Could it be they feel we do not have the volume of animals concerns in this city from past history? Maybe because our animal control officer kept it peaceful. One really will not know how much she will be missed until the

first major issue surfaces. In a seminar March 17, 2010, we learned from Sgt. David Hunt, Franklin County Sheriff’s Office, police officers are not trained in animal control laws. The question I have for city council is, now that it is apparent the police officers will now become animal control officers, will our officers be trained in animals laws? Will the


residents of Upper Arlington have to rely on the Franklin County Shelter or Capital Area Humane to provide animal control? Do these agencies have the sufficient number of officers to add Upper Arlington to their heavy load of animal control duties? Zaron Van Meter Upper Arlington

people celebrated Christmas as well. The poor and destitute of the city received shelter and dinner from organizations like the Salvation Army. Other newer volunteer organizations like Charity Newsies solicited funds in the days before Christmas in order to provide clothing for children in need. At the County Children’s Home, “there were two large trees loaded down with presents for the children. A great fireplace had been rigged up with a chimney big enough for a live Santa to come down it, and he came down in good form, with a bag of toys on his back.” And so it went at all of the major institutions in the city where the blind, the deaf, the aged and the infirm were all treated to a special day. Even the patrol barn of the Columbus Police Department had a celebration of sorts on a day when the police and their horses still had to work. “Christmas Neapolitan — a blending of maple cream, orange ice and vanilla glace; a combination of frozen desserts pretty to look at and very good to eat. A quart will make six good size portions. Per quart, 60 cents.” Of course, many people liked to make their own dessert. Here is one from a local paper. “Edinburgh Fog — Mix half a pint of cream with two tablespoonfuls of powdered sugar and whip to a thick froth. Stir in half a cupful of crumbled macaroons, flavor with vanilla to taste and serve very cold in individual dishes. If desired, garnish with blanched almonds just before sending this dessert to the table.” Happy Holidays.

Christmas 1910: Everyone enjoyed the Sunday holiday to represent natural bark and to the bark is pasted strips of fringed paper to represent the green of ED the wellknown ChristLENTZ mas tree. “While these trees are stout enough to support candles of various sizes, they’ll hardly do as yet to hold presents, but those who are employing them say they answer the purpose of the Tannenbaum very well.” This description is a reminder that Christmas was celebrated somewhat differently than it is today. In an age before widespread use of electric tree lights, lighting the tree was a careful exercise in every family. Some people lit their tree on Christmas Eve. Others waited until Christmas morning. But in either case, the ritual was the same. While father carefully lighted the tree’s candles, two other family members stood close by — one with a bucket of water and the other with a bucket of sand, ready to put out the flames if the tree caught fire. It was an unfortunately common occurrence in those days. The family enjoyed the lighted tree for a few minutes. Then the candles were extinguished and presents could be exchanged. Later in the day, family and friends would gather for a traditional Christmas dinner. For each family, that traditional dinner varied a bit, but usually included favorite dishes and specially prepared desserts and other comestibles. Most people enjoyed Christmas then as we do now — at home. Some were not so fortunate. But many, if not most of these

As it were

There was a nice blanket of snow across Columbus on Christmas morning in 1910. Almost everyone was able to enjoy the holiday because in this year, as was the case every seven years, Christmas fell on a Sunday. For many people, an extra day off from work was taken on Monday as well. But even for the people who didn’t do this, a Christmas Sunday was a special day. The Columbus of 100 years ago was different in a number of ways from the sprawling capital city of 2010. For one thing, it had only about a quarter of the population it does today and those people took up a lot less space. The old “walking city” of the 19th century had given way to the “streetcar city” of 1910, but people still lived only a mile or two from where they worked, and most people worked in or near downtown Columbus. Downtown was where people came to shop and spend their leisure time as well. As the Christmas season approached, shopping became more and more centered on preparations for the holiday. In a time before supermarkets, that meant almost daily shopping at the public markets scattered around the city. Today we can visit North Market near the convention center and get some sense of what it must have been like to shop in those days. A local newspaper described North Market at Christmas time in 1910: “The North Market is a particularly attractive one just now … It is a clean and comfortable place with many stalls filled with appetizing edibles. “Here is one where the proprietor calls out cheerfully, ‘Right this way, folks; right this way for fancy apples.’ Another cries his cabbages and celery; another oranges, nuts and cranberries, in a wheedling, coaxing tone that is irresistible. But not every home and hearth had a fresh-cut Christmas tree. For more than a few families, something new was being tried: “Reports seem to indicate that that fewer large Christmas trees are being employed than formerly. This is due to the fact that the price of wood has advanced enormously within recent years and every tree cut down before it has gained its full growth means that the forest of the future has been denuded of a commercially valuable tree … As a result, there has been a tendency to substitute artificial trees for the old-fashioned Tannenbaum … “These artificial trees are made of soft iron wire. A piece of stout wire comprises the trunk and smaller wires are placed around the upright standard to represent the branches. The tree is then wrapped with paper colored so as

Continued from page A1 chance to interact with librarians and take advantage of the library’s collection. While learning about the library, they will research the American Civil Rights movement and create a presentation to be used as a part of the library’s Black History Month events. McNeil said she believes that this interaction involving the library, the guest students and the community is “the library at its best.” Following the UAPL visit, the students will spend Feb. 3 — the official kick-off of the Chinese New Year — at Upper Arlington High School. While visiting the high school, the students will have an opportunity to shadow UAHS students to be further immersed into everyday American life, McNeil said. UAHS students will attend one of two presentations during the day that will include a video introduction to modern-day Chinese life along with a questionand-answer session with the Chinese students. At 7 p.m. Feb. 3, the Chinese students will return to the library for a community reception, where they will give a presentation on how Chinese New Year is celebrated around China. There will be another question-and-answer

Can you solve the mystery? session about China and the students’ experience in Upper Arlington. This event is open to the public and will take place in the Friends Theater. During their visit to the community, the students will stay with host families in Upper Arlington and the Tri-Village area. The families are asked to provide housing and food during the short visit, as well as transportation to and from the planned events. Host families will enjoy the added benefit of experiencing one on one cultural exchange from the students living with them. McNeil said the coordinators are currently working to secure host families for all 20 students participating in the cultural exchange program. They are particularly interested in placing students in homes that have current high schoolers living at home, but all families interested in hosting one to two of the Chinese students for the week are welcome to apply, she said. Those interested in applying to be a host family should register at For more information about the community reception call McNeil at (614) 486-9621 or email

In brief Habitat seeking winter volunteers Habitat for Humanity-Greater Columbus is looking for volunteers who are willing to brave the winter months to help build homes for low-income families in Franklin County. Current funding cycles require that home construction projects continue through the winter season. To help recruit volunteers, Habitat has created a new “Winter Warriors� program.

Individuals who volunteer during the months of January through March will each receive a Winter Warriors long-sleeve T-shirt. Volunteers who donate 20 or more hours during those months will also receive a Winter Warriors knit hat. Volunteers are needed for onsite construction shifts from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesdays through Saturdays. Volunteers are also needed to work 5:30 to 8 p.m. shifts on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

A volunteer orientation will be held from 10 to 11 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 15, at the Habitat offices located at 3140 Westerville Road. Individuals are encouraged to attend a volunteer orientation, but attendance is not required. Construction leaders provide needed construction and worksite safety training at the beginning of each work shift. To sign up to volunteer, visit, or call Habitat at (614) 364-7020 for more information.

Pediatric urgent care, emergency department: What’s the difference? Urgent Care locations offer treatment for non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries that need immediate attention but are not serious enough to warrant a trip to the emergency department. Treatment for the following conditions is provided: minor cuts, minor/small burns, possible broken bones/simple fractures (facility will perform X-rays and initial treatment), sprains and strains, vomiting, diarrhea, asthma (mild or moderate wheezing), rashes, mild allergic reactions and fever. Nationwide Children’s Hospital offers five urgent care facilities (including the main campus office) with evening and weekend hours, and can be considered an extension of a community pediatrician’s office. Go to the emergency department if you feel your child’s problem is a true emergency, or for treatment of the following conditions: major trauma/injuries, injuries involving a motor vehicle crash or being struck by a motor vehicle, a fall from a height, seri-

Talk with your doctor before your child gets sick about how to handle emergencies and inquire about the doctor’s policy on addressing medical needs outside of office hours. Having that information ahead of time will mean one less thing to worry about when your child is sick. If you think your child is experiencing a medical emergency or life-threatening condition, always call 911. In situations where calling 911 isn’t necessary, you should always call your child’s pediatrician or family doctor first to determine the best treatment option. If you think someone is poisoned, call the Central Ohio Poison Center at 1-800-222-1222.

A recent study suggests that regular use of a cell phone may increase the risk of “tinnitus�, a condition characterized by persistent ringing in the ears. While the study only included 200 people (100 with tinnitus and 100 without the condition), it does bear noting by those preferring to err on the side of caution. Tinnitus affects 10%-15% of people in the developed world, and it has the potential of adversely affecting the quality of life in significant ways. As far as the study is concerned, researchers estimate that people who used a cell phone before the first signs of tinnitus occurred were 37% more likely to develop the condition than those in the control group. If tinnitus is affecting your life, see the people who can do the best job for you.

The Beat Arts, eats and fun in central Ohio By Jim Fischer • Before The Beat takes a (in our opinion) well-deserved holiday break — a one-week hiatus for our Dec. 30 editions — we hit the Rewind button for a look back at arts and entertainment happenings during 2010. (This is a print-only hiatus — make sure to check the Arts &Entertainment section at for stuff next week.) As usual, this Year in Review offers up a couple of awards, some notable quotes and a recap of news and trends from the past year. Enjoy, and early good wishes to all of you for 2011 from The Beat.

Best Concert

and energetic, pumping out rock n’roll song after rock n’roll song. We’ve since immersed ourselves — our current fave is The Spirit of Jazz. And a Critic Crony added: “It was nice to discover some back catalog ditties that you like as much as the stuff of which you are aware. Also, to get introduced to some other artists (Chamberlain, the opener and the Lucero tune GA played) made it worth the price of the ticket.” But we were torn, and thus opted for the easy way out, in declaring a tie — naming the Kansas-with-Columbus Symphony Orchestra at Picnic with the Pops, also in July, co-“Best Concert.” Sure, it had been more than 20 years since we’d last seen one of our favorite bands, but this one was special because we attended with our then-12-year-old daughter — and it was her idea. Awesomeness.

In a surprise move, we’re declaring a tie here. It’s always cool when a show gives you a greater insight into a band to which you’re just starting to come around. Such it was in July when we checked out The Gaslight Anthem at Lifestyle Communities Pavilion. Best Quote We had a slightly-more-thancursory knowledge of the band “You know when you’re at a before, and liked what we’d heard. party and you think it’s time to In concert, the band was raucous leave but then you see a friend

The Gaslight Anthem

Jean-Marie Zeitouni The Temptations

who tells you to stay for one more and then you have still one more and one more and the next morning is not too good? We want to have a happy end to the Scorpions party and not leave after your inside said you stayed too long.” — Scorpions guitarist Rudolf Schenker, on his band deciding to retire (Sadly, the band had to cancel its Columbus date, and may not pass these ways again.)

Honorable Mention “I’m a big fan of The Temptations.” — Otis Williams of the Temptations Williams also told us, when we asked what he was doing on the day we called, “Just layin’around watching double-oh-seven.”

More quotes Wow. The Beat had the opportunity to chat with some cool folks during 2010, and we came away with a lot of good stuff. Thanks to them all. • “I believe you’re handed a cer-

tain fate but you create your own destiny.” — blues singer and cancer survivor Candye Kane • “We sound like the sum total of the music we listen to. I’m sure if you went through your record collection, there would be more than one kind of music in there.” — rocker Sarah Borges • “I hope I play well.” — trumpeter Lew Soloff, on his forthcoming date with the Columbus Jazz Orchestra. We think he was kidding • “If you can’t sit down with an acoustic guitar and play it and have it make sense, then we’re probably not going to do it. A great melody, lyrics and chord structure make a song good, no matter what style it’s played in.” — Joe Greenetz, Sherwood • “It’s hard to put on makeup with a 2-year-old hanging around. In real life, I don’t get to wear makeup any more.” — jazz singer Jane Monheit • “The producer asked me if I was trying to make a record or get on the cover of Guitar magazine. I told him ‘Both, man!’” — Puddle of Mudd guitarist Paul Phillips • “I got so used to seeing myself green that I’d think I was clean, only to see pictures of myself later and I looked seasick.” — Julia Murney, former Elphaba in Wicked on Broadway, on washing • “Music is a message that communicates something and you can use technique to accomplish it.” — guitarist Andy McKee • “We’re maybe not as precise — perhaps the word is ‘good’ — as some other bands, but our shows

are better.” — We Are Scientists bassist Chris Cain • “I figured I’d wired his house or something, but turns out he’d seen me at an open mic.” — Matt “The Electrician” Sever, on a meeting at a restaurant that helped convince him to permanently adopt his moniker. • “For our first record, we saved up money enough to buy our buddy a couch for his recording studio for helping us out. Times have changed.” — Green River Ordinance bassist Geoff Ice • “It’s still predominantly female, which is a good thing. That’s how I met my wife.” — Isaac Hanson on his band’s fan base

News department • We’re going with the October arrival of new Columbus Symphony Orchestra music director Jean-Marie Zeitouni as the top story of 2010 in the arts. This is not just because Zeitouni, like The Beat, is a big hockey fan. (He’s French-Canadian, for crying out loud. What did you expect?) No, this is extra big because the CSO made news this year also because of a new shared services agreement with CAPA, part of a larger financial restructuring, the CSO’s second in the past two years. The orchestra needed some good news, and Zeitouni is it. He’s young (36), personable, attractive and he’s going to make Columbus his home. (Which means, he admitted, he’ll have to bone up on the Blue Jackets. But again, we digress.) He’s one of North America’s rising young conductors, he

recognizes the challenges ahead and he loves this music. The CAPA agreement, along with the other budget and operational changes, allowed the CSO to finish the 2009-2010 fiscal year with a balanced budget. Moving forward, there’s only so much more that can be done by CSO leadership — which we’ve not let off the hook in past writings — but the economy is what it is. This is ultimately a collective civic decision. What kind of a symphony orchestra does this region want? • ProMusica Chamber Orchestra announced in the spring that co-founder and music director Timothy Russell will step down — he’s not retiring, he told us — gradually over the next couple of seasons. A search to replace Russell is under way. This decision is big, too, as Russell is the only maestro that PMCO has known in its 30-plus-year history. • The concept of shared services also made news as the Columbus Blue Jackets sought ways to reduce operating losses. The team signed an agreement in May with Ohio State University to handle concert booking and day-to-day operations at Nationwide Arena, a measure the team hoped would save it $1-million annually. Both sides were very clear that this would not represent a conflict of interest. “Whenever a show plays, both buildings would be involved financially,” OSU vice president for administration and planning Xen Riggs told The Beat. • The Columbus Children’s Choir opened its 15th season. • Columbus blues legend Willie Pooch passed away in May. • Shadowbox Cabaret changed its name to Shadowbox Live, then later in the year announced the finalization of an agreement that will see the rock n’ roll-sketch comedy troupe move back to downtown Columbus. • The Bluestone opened in November in the former Bar of Modern Art space.

Beloved Bexley Italian still hitting its marks It’s not a fluke that Giuseppe’s Ritrovo is a local institution. Located in the heart of Bexley — next to the Drexel and across from Capital University — the upscale casual Giuseppe’s can convert newcomers into regulars after a single visit. A fun and lively place where suited gentlemen enjoy wine and pizza at the granite bar next to big tables of cocktailing ladies close by families smiling over bowls of their all-time favorite pastas, this big windowed restaurant exudes true neighborhood charm. No wonder it’s almost as packed on a cold and crappy Monday evening as it is on a Saturday night. A gaze at Giuseppe’s rustic brick walls and slick modern art is a clue into its way with a menu. In other words, the place manages to simultaneously embrace and transcend classic ItalianAmerican cooking. While the basic pasta-loaded

MENU by G.A. Benton food document hasn’t altered drastically over the years, there are always-interesting nightly specials. And recently, a few new and exciting developments have been introduced: a terrific happy hour and a short list of ambitious cocktails. On the happy hour front, most of Giuseppe’s glasses of wine, terrific handmade pizzas and snazzy appetizer dishes are sold for about half off. This means that between 4:30 and 6:30 p.m. — at the bar only — great deals await those who show up early. That was me recently, as I sipped some food-friendly vino ($5 per glass) and dug into the pretty Prosciutto Crudo Antipasto ($13, or $6 at happy hour).

Six-Cheese Ravioli and Insalata Favalosa at Giuseppe’s Ritrovo in Bexley.

Sheets of soft, supple, sweet and succulent Parma ham were placed atop a chopped salad of kalamata olives, roasted red peppers, fresh mozzarella and marinated arti-

choke hearts. I liked how the creamy cheese helped direct the focus onto the delicate meat amidst bolder elements. High-quality mushrooms (lots of shiitakes), plenty of racy tomato sauce and a very attractive thin and crispy crust delighted mightily in the Al Funghi pizza ($15, or $9 at happy hour). What’s more, the wide pie was large enough to feed two to three for dinner or serve as an appetizer for a huge table. (Pizzas are also available in whole wheat or gluten-free crusts.) About 20 pastas make up the bulk of Giuseppe’s menu, and ranging from the killer $10 Spaghetti and Meatballs to pricier, seafood-laden varieties, they’re all good. Like the extravagant Gamberi Di Sicilia ($22). Lots of garlicky, good-quality shrimp were matched with fine mushrooms in a spicy and lavish cognac and heavy-duty cream sauce. Perfectly

The Six Cheese Ravioli ($15) were a half-dozen firm pasta pillows filled with a ricotta-forward dairy blend.

For dessert, the Blueberry Bread Pudding ($7.50) was a good choice for those (like me) seeking something with a restrained

sweetness. Drizzles of creme anglaise played beautifully with the plentiful fruit. If you’d rather sip dessert, pick one of Giuseppe’s specialty cocktails — they use enticing ingredients like grappa, Aperol and rhubarb bitters.

Polaris adds another dash of Indian spice with Cumin The closing of Bayleaf India Bistro left a serious hole in the lunch buffet scene in Polaris. That’s going to change on Friday, when Cumin takes over the vacant restaurant at 1025 Polaris Parkway. Owner Ved Prakash, who also goes by Vince, has completely revamped the interior, installing stone, tile and white Italian marble while building a 4-foot-tall border around the lounge area. “I want to give the impression it’s not the same restaurant, it’s a new restaurant,” he said. The transition also includes a new menu, which is about 25 percent bigger, with a large assortment of seafood, including spicy mango shrimp, lobster lababdar and Malai halibut. There are plenty of standard plates, as well, such as various styles of tandoori, biryani and vegetarian dishes. Most entrees from the a la carte dinner menu are in the $8 to $12 range. Still, the all-important lunch buffet will be served daily. On the weekends, it will include the chaat station, as Bayleaf had. Anyone who’s witnessed it firsthand knows that Indian buffets are extremely

The extra space will allow Prakash to pursue his burgeoning catering business, which now serves 700 lunches per week. “Once I open up (Cumin) then I could add 500 easy,” he said. Cumin will be open for lunch and dinner daily. For more information, call 614854-0775.

Ved “Vince” Prakash, owner of Cuisine of India, will soon open Cumin inside the former Bayleaf India Bistro site at Polaris.

In other Indian news from Polaris, Masala BBQ has opened at 8939 South Old State Road. Aqil Khan’s new restaurant specializes in Indian and Pakistani cuisines. The menu is by no means extensive. Instead, it is primarily focused on tandoori, often described as Indian barbecue, and biryani dishes. Most entrée prices are in the $7 to $10 range. Masala BBQ is open six days a week, closed Sunday.

Prakash laid the foundation at Cuisine of India, 8475 Sancus Blvd. That was followed by Bayleaf and then Maanas, another large space off Polaris Parkway, west of South Old State Road. “People noticed my success,” said Prakash, who opened Cuisine of India in 2004.

Girls Basketball

Menden using speed to succeed in post By PAUL BATTERSON ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Junior post player Olivia Menden of the Upper Arlington High School girls basketball team is looking forward to playing back-to-back games on Tuesday and Wednesday at the Watterson Christmas Classic. “I love playing a lot of games right in a row,” Menden said. “We’ve done so much conditioning this season. “One of the strengths of this team is its athleticism. Playing back-to-back

games is not going to be that big of a deal. We’ve got great endurance and great speed that some of the other teams might not have on the second day.” The Golden Bears, who are 5-3 in Watterson’s holiday tournament since the 2006-07 season, face Dublin Jerome on Tuesday and Rocky River Magnificat on Wednesday. The Celtics were 32 after defeating Zanesville 45-37 in overtime on Dec. 14 and Westerville South 44-42 last Friday. The Blue Streaks lost 47-42 to Westlake in their opener on Dec. 1 but won their next three, in-

cluding 46-32 over Avon on Dec. 15. Upper Arlington could play the Watterson Christmas Classic without two starters, as neither post player Kaelyn McNeil (lacerated knee) nor guard Sarah Hobbs (thumb injury) played last Friday in a 56-29 win over Hilliard Darby. “We’ve got a lot of kids who have been thrust into big roles because of the injuries,” coach Chris Savage said. “While those two are out, it’s kind of an open audition for the rest of the team to show us why they should be getting playing time. Hopefully, when Sarah and

Kaelyn get back, we’re going to be that much deeper.” The injuries and back-to-back games mean the Bears will be counting on Menden to play a lot of minutes. Through four games, she was averaging 6.5 points and scored a season-high eight against Darby. Menden has been part of a four-player rotation UA has used to help offset the loss of Jane Windler and Shannon Flower to graduation. Windler averaged 10.7 points and 9.3 rebounds last season and was named

OCC-Central Division Player of the Year and second-team all-district in Division I. She finished second on the Bears’ alltime rebounding list with 653. Of the 114 combined points UA scored against Darby and in a 61-58 loss to Dublin Coffman on Dec. 14, 34 have come from the post players. At 5-foot-9, Menden is four inches shorter than Windler, who is 6-1. But what Menden may lack in size, she makes up for with speed and endurance. See GIRLS, page B2



Bears finding scoring touch By PATRICK DOLAN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Dr. Haugland said. “If you can move, you can run. It also has a repetitive nature and a lot of the kids I work with enjoy repetition and running is nothing but repetition. “It also is important in promoting physical fitness. A lot of times, they have sedentary lifestyles.” The workouts also help the students mentally as well as physically. “Running promotes what could become a lifelong interest in physical activity and the blood flow to the brain can help with cognitive

The Upper Arlington High School hockey team struggled to score with any consistency last season and failed to score more than one goal in five of its first eight games this season. But based on the Golden Bears’ performance at the Tam-O-Shanter Invitational last weekend, they appear to have found their scoring touch. UA was averaging 3.9 goals through eight games, a marked improvement from last season when it averaged 2.2 goals, scored more than four goals only three times and was shut out 10 times in 39 games. However, the Bears’ offensive numbers through eight games were misleading, as 27 of their 31 goals came in three games: a 15-0 win over Watterson in a Capital Hockey Conference game on Dec. 4, a 6-4 win over the Greenwood (Ind.) South Stars in the Midwest Thanksgiving Classic on Nov. 26 and a 7-6 shootout loss to St. Charles in the Midwest Thanksgiving Classic on Nov. 28. “Finishing — that’s what we need to work on the most,” senior forward Jack Sansbury said before the Bears totaled 25 goals in four games at the Tam-OShanter Invitational. “We’re focusing more on finishing in practice.” Senior forward Neil McKenzie shared that sentiment before the Bears headed to Sylvania for the Tam-O-Shanter Invitational. “We’ve been playing all right, but we definitely have to figure a few things out,” McKenzie said. “Our defense has been stepping up, which is awesome, but our offense needs to start clicking and score more goals. Once our defense and offense start clicking together, I think we’ll be really good.” UA opened the Tam-O-Shanter Invitational with an 8-1 win over Perrysburg last Friday. Then, after losing 4-3 to Whitehouse Anthony Wayne last Saturday morning, the Bears defeated Oregon Clay 9-1 that evening before beating Maumee 5-4 last Sunday to improve to 5-6-1 overall. According to McKenzie and Sansbury, following a 4-0 loss to Findlay on Dec. 11, the coaches emphasized the importance of utilizing a strong forecheck at practice in the days leading up to the Tam-O-Shanter Invitational. “If we forecheck like we do in practice, we’ll put a lot of pressure on (an opponent’s) defense, and that pressure causes them to turn the puck over, which helps us get lots of shots,” McKenzie said. “All (forechecking) is is just working hard. I think that’s a mindset we’re picking up on. We want to be on the attack all the time.” “The physicality, we’re stepping that up a notch,” Sansbury said. “We’re giving the other team

Upper Arlington fans watch as the Golden Bears’ Carter Smith heads upcourt after stealing the ball from Dublin Jerome’s Robbie Davidson on Dec. 14. UA won the non-league game 63-41. The Golden Bears return to action Dec. 28 and Dec. 30 in the Girard (Pa.) Holiday Tournament.

Cross Country

Running aids students’ independence By SCOTT HENNEN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

As Jackie Bechtold crossed the finish line on Oct. 16 in her final high school race, there was no fanfare, no fireworks, only the waiting arms of her parents Tim and Nancy Bechtold, several of her teammates on the Upper Arlington High School girls cross country team and coach Dale Hartney. Bechtold finished 197th out of 217 participants in 29 minutes, 0.61 seconds in the open race for OCC-Central and OCC-Cardinal division runners during the league meet at Hilliard Darby. Her result over 5,000 meters wasn’t magnificent, but still brought tears to her parents’ eyes. Bechtold, along with sophomore Brian Kincaid, have autism spectrum disorder, which is a range of complex neurodevelopment disorders, characterized by social impairments, communication difficulties, and restricted, repetitive, and stereotyped patterns of behavior. Running has not only helped them both physically, but in everyday life. “Jackie started running in the eighth grade because when she was in elementary school, a teacher, Amy Orr, suggested that she run cross country when she gets to middle school because she had heard it was good for children with autism,” Nancy Bechtold said. “When Jackie started, she had to have someone run with her, but now she can run the course by herself.” Kincaid also needed a course aide when he started running last season, but now also runs the course alone. He finished 312th (25:21.47) out of 314 runners,

Brian Kincaid (left) and Jackie Bechtold competed for the Upper Arlington cross country team despite having autism spectrum disorder. Ron Kincaid said of his son running cross country, “It helps him to do things independently. It also has helped me let him be more independent and that is best for both of us.”

but effort was not the biggest satisfaction for his father, Ron. That would be seeing his son being able to compete and enjoy time with his peers. “Coach Hartney told me that if I gave him four years with Brian, he’d have him running like anyone else, but he has come so far in just two years,” Ron said while fighting back tears. “It’s amazing how far he has come.” Many autistic youth have problems communicating. Jackie readily remembers faces and names, but Brian doesn’t talk as much. “Brian’s communication skills are such that you don’t always get a meaningful answer,” Ron

said. “After he finishes his run, he says, ‘No!’ Sometimes that means practice is over and sometimes it means he doesn’t want to run anymore. “You can always tell when he wants to run. He’ll grab his shoes, run to the door and say, ‘Yes, cross country.’” Dr. Morten Haugland runs an educational consulting firm called Haugland Consulting, LLC, in Columbus. It provides services to children with disabilities, primarily children diagnosed with autism. He is a proponent of exercise to improve the standard of life for those with autism. “I always try to promote phys-

ical fitness with any group, but it sometimes can be difficult because many (autistic students) are not as coordinated as their peers,” said Dr. Haugland, who has a doctorate in Applied Psychology and a master’s in Applied Behavior Analysis and Special Education from Ohio State. “But I know several (autistic students) who are runners and really enjoy it.” Dr. Haugland said running allows autistic students to be individuals and helps them become more independent. “Running doesn’t require concept of team, but not depending on anyone other than yourself,”

Gafford, Robinson among area products in bowls By JARROD ULREY ThisWeek Community Newspapers

There might not have been a more dramatic turnaround in college football this fall than the one that occurred at Miami University. After losing to Central Michigan 35-10 in the 2007 MidAmerican Conference title game to finish 6-7, the RedHawks slipped to 2-10 in 2008 and coach Shane Montgomery was forced to resign. Another rough season occurred in 2009 as Miami went 1-11 under first-year coach Michael Haywood. It took what two-year Miami captain Jordan Gafford calls a “change in the culture” to bring about what happened this fall. After splitting their first six games, the RedHawks bounced back and advanced to the MAC championship game in Detroit, where they beat Northern Illinois 26-21 on Dec. 3 to improve to 9-4. The win sent Miami, which features a pair of fifth-year seniors and central Ohio natives in Armand Robinson and Gafford, to the Bowl at 8 p.m. Jan. 6 in Mobile, Ala., against Middle Tennessee State. Gafford, a 2006 Worthington Kilbourne High School graduate and defensive back, and Robinson, a 2006 Reynoldsburg graduate and wide receiver, both were key players along with 2007 Westland graduate Will Diaz (DL) and 2006 Whetstone graduate Seth Philip (kickoff specialist). Haywood left Dec. 16 to coach the University of Pittsburgh. Lance Guidry is serving as interim coach. “It’s been a rough four years for Armand and I to be a part of the team’s struggles, so this year has been exciting,” said Gafford, the ThisWeek Super 25 captain in 2005. “To win a lot of close games and win the MAC championship, it was all worth it. I think a lot of it was that (Haywood) came in and

cleaned house. We’ve been playing our best football at the end of the season.” Gafford played in 10 games as a freshman in 2006 and was the team’s top tackler among non-linebackers in 2007 before suffering a fractured tibia in the second game of 2008, ending his season. Gafford came back as a cocaptain in 2009 and started the first eight games before going down with a torn nerve in his neck. Gafford missed two games this season with a concussion but finished with 32 tackles, one interception and a fumble recovery while playing safety. Robinson had 76 receptions for 805 yards and five touchdowns this season. He had 14 catches in the MAC title game, including the game-winning 33yard score with 33 seconds to go. “This is unbelievable because this is the first time I’ve ever been on a team that won a championship,” Robinson said. •LEFFLER FINDS ROLE — Although it wouldn’t have seemed likely after he graduated from Columbus Academy in 2007, Andy Leffler will be traveling to Orlando, Fla., on Dec. 28 to play for North Carolina State in the Champs Sports Bowl. A linebacker, wide receiver, kicker and punter for the Vikings, Leffler discovered Elon University on a family vacation and eventually became a walkon punter. After punting just eight times for the Phoenix in 2009, Leffler transferred to N.C. State. This season, the Dublin native punted 31 times for a 38.7 average while splitting duties with senior Jeff Ruiz (36.4 average). “I wanted to just focus on my academics this year, but I just decided to give it a shot and in the third game this year I got my first punt,” said Leffler, a junior. “It’s something I never would have dreamed of. The most enjoyable part has been getting the second op-

portunity.” •FROM THE BIG TEN — Eighteen players with local ties are on rosters of Big Ten teams, including nine from Ohio State, which plays Arkansas in the Sugar Bowl on Jan. 4. Michigan State has seven players from central Ohio, including three who played significantly this season in Le’Veon Bell (RB, Groveport), B.J. Cunningham (WR, Westerville South) and Steve Gardiner (LB, Dublin Coffman). The Spartans play Alabama in the Capital One Bowl on Jan. 1. The Crimson Tide won the BCS national title game last year and feature 2009 Heisman Trophy winner Mark Ingram.

“It’s really exciting, especially coming off a 6-7 year last year,” said Gardiner, who has played on special teams the last two years and split time between middle linebacker and outside linebacker this season. “Playing against last year’s national champions and Heisman winner adds a little bit of motivation, plus it’s the Big Ten against the SEC.” •ALSO BOUND FOR ORLANDO — The Wolfpack’s opponent in the Champs Sports Bowl is West Virginia, which starts Beechcroft graduate Julian Miller on its defensive line.

country and placed 25th at state in 18:45.6. Despite being in an era when high school athletes often specialize in a sport, Savage said only three of the team’s top 10 players are focused solely on basketball. “The nice thing about that is they develop that winning mentality,” Savage said. “I came from a smaller school (DeSales) where a lot of athletes play multiple sports, so I am all for playing more than one sport.” Menden said she plans on being a distance runner in college, but basketball gives her a release that she doesn’t get from running. She admits, though, that it was a rough transition between cross country and basketball. “I’ve been running in a straight line forever and then all of a sudden we’re doing these drills where we’re moving all around the court,” Menden said.

Below are the recent results and coming schedule for the Upper Arlington girls basketball team: *Dec. 14 — Lost to Dublin Coffman 61-58. Mary Corbett scored 22 points, including four 3-pointers. Michela Paradiso had 14 points. *Last Friday — Defeated Hilliard Darby 56-29. Corbett scored 17 points. *Last Tuesday — Played Central Crossing Tuesday — Dublin Jerome at Watterson Christmas Classic Wednesday — Rocky River Magnificat at Watterson Christmas Classic *Jan. 3 — Home vs. Westland. The Bears went 3-0 against Westland last season, winning 68-40 and 7426 in the regular season and 68-30 in the first round of the Division I district tournament.

Student-athletes recall favorite Christmas presents During a week in which families spend time together and share life’s blessings, let’s find out what some of central Ohio’s premier high school athletes consider the best Christmas gift they have received. Abby Barker, Watterson field hockey: “The best Christmas gift I ever got was a trip to Colorado. We had so much fun skiing, relaxing and hanging out together as a family. It was a time I will never forget.” Kellie Roudabush, Hilliard Bradley softball and basketball: “My favorite Christmas gift that I ever got was a bike when I was really little. It was something that I had always wanted and I finally received it.”

William Rosler, Columbus Academy boys swimming: “My best Christmas gift came in 2001 when I got a Nintendo GameCube along with the game ‘Super Smash Brothers LARRY Melee.’ I spent the next 36 hours or so in LARSON the basement playing the game and only stopped for food.” Brian Sullivan, Upper Arlington boys basketball: “My favorite Christmas present was Nintendo 94. My brothers and I had asked for Nintendo 94 and

we opened all of our presents but there was no Nintendo. Later in the day, my grandparents came with a box and inside was the cherished Nintendo 94. We were thrilled and played video games for the rest of the Christmas break.” Kellie Carmendy, Olentangy Liberty girls diving: “I thought about my favorite gift for a while and I really don’t have one favorite Christmas present. Getting presents doesn’t mean that much to me. I am just happy to have my whole family together.” Cooper Staton, DeSales boys swimming: “My best Christmas gift ever was in 2005 when my sister, Carmen, and I discovered we would be having a new

Chris Uhle, Olentangy Liberty pole vault: “My favorite Christmas gift was a Fisher Price easel I got when I was 4 years old. It also came with a letter from Santa that said to use it for coloring with my crayons instead of using my uncle’s couch, and if I ever did that again I would be getting coal for Christmas.” As for me, the most memorable gift was given to me by my late wife, Jeanne, who took me on a picnic in Schiller Park in German Village on the night after Christmas. We went to the park via horsedrawn carriage and shared moments that will be with me forever. To all of you, from the student-athletes and from me, Merry Christmas!

sibling. We got to tell all of our friends and family that weekend what was going to happen. Today, our youngest sister, Ellen, is 4 years old and puts a smile on everyone’s face every day.” Aisha Cavin, Hartley girls track: “My best-ever Christmas gift was my dog named Chase. We got him from Walhonding, Ohio, during the huge blizzard that left everyone without power, including the breeders. However, we drove three hours to get him and it was by far worth it and the best gift I could receive.” Wil Trapp, Gahanna Lincoln boys soccer: “It’s real easy for me. My favorite Christmas gift was a Ping-Pong table.”

Through 12 games, Max Collins was tied for second on the team with six goals.

Matthew Beebe had a team-high 11 assists, followed by McKenzie with nine, forward K.C. Kessler with seven and forward Jack Whitman with six. Goaltenders Alex West and Eric Spencley have been splitting time in net. Through 12 games, West had a 3.33 goals-

functions,” he said. “(Running by autistic students) has shown to help with cognitive abilities. But maybe the biggest thing is to get child involved with lifelong activity and get him or her to move.” Kim Hutson, a multi-handicapped teacher at Upper Arlington, sees as definite improvement in Brian. “I think it has been a wonderful experience not only for his schoolwork, but to participate with school. It’s great that he’s able to communicate with the other kids about something they have in common,” Hutson said. “When he’s running cross country, he comes in happy and focused and he’s so happy to be able to go down there (to cross country practice) by himself. “It also allows him to do something at the same level as a nondisabled person can do and it helps them to become accepted by them. I think that’s really important.” The social aspect of running has been a boon for Jackie. When she was a freshman, her sister, Samantha, was a senior on the

UA cross country team. That helped her adjustment to the sport and now she is just another one of the girls on the team. “The girls had a slumber party last month and they wanted to make sure that Jackie would be there,” Nancy said. “That means a lot to her and it also helps her to interact with people.” Jackie is an outgoing girl, who has a love of music. She not only sings along to songs on the radio, but is a member of the UA choir and glee club. “Running has helped her focus all way around on what she needs to do. Both music and running have been good in that respect and also because she gets to be around kids her own age,” Tim Bechtold said. “I went to one of her early (cross country) practices and didn’t think she would like it, but I think she really wanted to be around her peers. She just wanted to be with the girls and the cross country girls have been good for her. They have been very inclusive.” Ron Kincaid said by letting Brian run his own race, it has helped his independence. “Coach Hartney is welcoming

and I’d describe him as nurturing, but that would imply that he does extra with Brian than he does for anyone else on the team,” he said. “What makes this a great deal is that coach Hartney expects Brian to do the things he needs to do at practice. A lot of times with developmentally disabled kids, the coaches and teachers will try to help too much, but coach Hartney keeps an eye on him while letting him do things by himself.” Brian is already doing several tasks by himself. He not only runs in the Special Olympics, but also works twice a week putting together new patient files at Ohio State University Medical Center and once a week dusting shelves at the Upper Arlington library. “When he started, I was kind of hesitant to let him off (at practice) because I didn’t know what to expect,” Ron said. “But it really has been great for him and helps him to do things independently. It also has helped me let him be more independent and that is best for both of us.”

against average and an .890 save percentage and Spencley had a 3.53 GAA and an .855 save percentage. “I think both of them are doing a good job,” Sansbury said.
