Kinnard retires after 17 years as AD By SCOTT HENNEN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

In 1991, Larry Larson approached Kathy Kinnard with an idea. Kinnard was a business teacher and yearbook adviser at Grandview Heights High School, and Larson was athletics director. He was three years from retirement and already looking toward the future. “I went and talked to Kathy about becoming athletics director because I had so much respect for her as a teacher and as a coach,” said Larson. “Of all the people on the staff in 1994, she was the one that I was hoping would follow me. She is so organized and so good with people. She is a terrific person and a terrific family person. It has been an honor to be associated with Kathy as long as I By Chris Parker/ThisWeek

Grandview Heights High School athletics director Kathy Kinnard is retiring after 35 years as a teacher and administrator.

have been.” On July 31, Kinnard will retire after 35 years at Grandview. She started as a business teacher in 1976, later became a coach and spent 17 years as athletics director. “The first thought that comes to mind is that Kathy Kinnard is a person of great character and high integrity,” said Ed O’Reilly, superintendent of Grandview Heights City Schools. “Any time someone leaves after 35 years, they take with them a great deal of historical and institutional knowledge.” “I suppose in some respects I’m an anomaly because people change jobs and careers all of the time,” Kinnard said. “Grandview has always been a strong community and I have always received great support from the community. Grandview has given its kids a quality education in the classroom and in athletics.” Kinnard is proud of the expansion and improvements in athletics during her tenure. “Since I became athletics director, we have added some See KINNARD, page A4

Community events planned along with Tour de Grandview By ALAN FROMAN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

A variety of community events, including a street party, kids’sprints and celebrity races, will be held June 26 in conjunction with the 19th annual Tour de Grandview Cycling Classic. The party will be held at the same time as the racing and get started at 11:30 a.m. The street party will include food, drinks and live entertainment by bands featuring Grandview Heights High School students and residents of the community, said Julie Whitley, president of the Grandview Community Association, the nonprofit group that organizes the event. This year’s party will have a new location, on First Avenue near Fairview. “We’ll have food and beverage vendors set up by First and Fairview,” Whitley said. “The area by First and Grandview will be set aside more for the vendors selling T-shirts and other items and for community groups.” The Kids’ Sprints will be held at 4:15 p.m. as part of the racing lineup, she said. “This year, the kids will get to race on a portion of the actual course the cyclists will be using and we’ll present the prizes to the

winners on the big stage, right where the racers get their prizes,” Whitley said. “I think that will be exciting for the kids.” The Kids’ Sprints will feature two age categories — ages 5-7 and 8-10 — for both girls and boys. Bike helmets and ribbons will be awarded to the top finishers. Registration for the sprints will begin at 12:30 p.m. at Broadview and First Avenue. The Celebrity Uphill Challenge will be held at 2 p.m. While the lineup of celebrity participants is still being finalized, local TV news reporters and city of Grandview officials are expected to be among those participating, Whitley said. The participants in the celebrity races will be raising funds for their favorite charities, she said. In past years, the community events were held on the Saturday

Construction work continues on Oakland Avenue June 13. The project plans include the installation of new water lines and improved storm sewers. New curbs and traffic-calming elements will also be installed along Oakland.

Oakland Avenue improvement project remains on schedule By ALAN FROMAN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Despite all the rainy weather, the city of Grandview Heights’ Oakland Avenue improvement project remains on schedule. “The weather hasn’t had an impact, fortunately,” said Patrik Bowman, director of administration/economic development. “We haven’t had major problems so far with the project.”

Work to install new water lines and improve storm sewers has already been completed since the project began in midApril, he said. Residents on Oakland will be notified, perhaps as early as this week, that they will soon be connected to the new water lines, Bowman said. Oakland Avenue was closed to through traffic on June 6, he said. The road surface will be regraded and new sidewalks will be installed on both sides of Oakland.

New curbs will also be installed along Oakland and traffic calming elements added to help reduce the speed of motorists traveling the road. Residents on Oakland have long expressed concern about vehicles traveling too fast on a roadway that students use to get to and from Edison Intermediate/Middle School and the high school. The traffic-calming elements will inSee OAKLAND, page A2

St. Christopher Church to hold festival June 24-25 By ALAN FROMAN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

St. Christopher Church will hold its 11th annual festival from 6 p.m. to midnight June 24-25 at the church, 1420 Grandview Ave. “The festival is a big part of the church’s summer and I think it’s be-

come an annual summer event people in the community really look forward to,” said Mark Herbert, chair of this year’s festival committee. The festival’s second night is the same day as the monthly Grandview Hop and one day before the annual Tour de Grandview cycling classic and street party.

“Being held the same weekend as those events helps bring more people to our festival,” Herbert said. This year, all the food sold at the festival will be prepared by church members, he said. “In the past, we’ve used local food vendors, but we thought we wanted to give it a little more personal feel,” Her-

bert said. The menu will be similar to last year’s festival and will include “what we call fair favorites, like fried chicken, French fries, funnel cakes and sweet treats,” he said. The always popular meatball subs will return, as will grilled favorites like brats and burgers, Herbert said. Plenty

of cold beverages will also be available. Several carnival rides and games will be available for youngsters and this year’s festival will also include rides and games designed for teens and young adults, Herbert said. See FESTIVAL, page A2

Majestics Quartet to bring back music of the ’60s By ALAN FROMAN

one of the band’s vocalists. “We’d get together to listen to the radio and we found that we all loved the same music,” he said. “We’d listen to WVKO, which was the only soul music station in town and WLAC out of Nashville.” “Those stations played music you couldn’t hear anywhere else,” said Workman, who plays guitar and still lives in Upper Arlington. And playing their favorite soul songs, like those released by the Stax/Volt and Atlantic record labels, the Majestics Quartet’s concerts were also unlike almost anything else in central Ohio. “There weren’t necessarily a lot of people who liked that kind of music, but they all came to see us because hardly anyone else was playing it,” Workman said. “It was very raw and earthy

In the mid 1960s, four Upper Arlington High School students formed a band to play the soul and R’n’B music they loved so much. Four decades later, the friends are still playing the music they love as the Majestics Quartet. Dave Balser, John Sproat, Rodger Wilson and John Workman will be performing Tuesday, June 21, at the Music on the Lawn concert series at the Grandview Heights Public Library. The concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. Recently, Balser, Wilson and Workman reminisced about their band and their bond before a rehearsal. Sproat was unable to attend that practice, but he will be playing the drums next week. The teens were all involved in the UAHS band and choral programs, said Wilson, now a Grand-

handles guitar, trumpet, bass and vocal duties. “The passionate vocals and the rhythm of the music just drew us in.” By the time the friends graduated and started attending Ohio State, they were playing concerts throughout Ohio, Wilson said. “It helped pay for my college,” he said. “Mine, too,” Workman said. “College was a lot cheaper then.” The band even had a chance to make a record at Magnetic Studios, which was located right across the street from the Grandview Library. Workman still has a copy of that record, which featured the R’n’B classic “Money” backed by Rufus Thomas’ “Walkin’ the Dog.” “We were serious about our See MUSIC, page A4 The Majestics Quartet members are Dave Balser, John Sproat, Rodger Wilson and John Workman.

clude brick crosswalks installed along the intersections at Third and First avenues, a raised median and raised bump-outs from the curb, Bowman said. The bulk of the work is expected to be completed by the time the new school year starts on Aug. 17, he said. To replace the trees that have been removed, taller street trees will be planted on the residential side and ornamental trees will be placed on the school side, Bowman said. The trees likely won’t be put in until the fall, he said. “I think Oakland Avenue is going to look much better once we’re through with the project,” Bowman said. The project is being paid for with $631,868 in grant money and $341,751 as a loan the city has received from the Ohio Public Works Commission.

“We’ve improved the training for the volunteers in our gambling games, so our gambling tent should run smoother this year,” he said. A raffle and silent auction will also be held and live entertainment will be featured both nights. The festival serves as a major fundraiser for the church, Herbert said. There is no specific earmark for this year’s proceeds, which will go to the church’s general fund to help pay for various needs and expenses, he said. Volunteers are still needed to help operate the various booths and assist with set-up and cleanup, Herbert said. Anyone interested in helping out can sign up via the church website,

of the race weekend. “We decided to try having everything on one day this year,” Whitley said. “Sometimes people would come to the street party on Saturday night and maybe not come the next day for the races. This way, you can do it all in one day.” With other events, including the Grandview Hop, the St. Christopher church festival and Comfest also happening on Saturday, “there may have been a little bit of cannibalizing of each others’ events going on,” she said. The Grandview Community Association uses the proceeds from the Tour de Grandview to fund a variety of charitable activities and donations, Whitley said. “A lot of people might think that all we do is put on the bike race, but we do a lot of things in the community,” she said. “Our overall purpose is to promote fitness in the community.” The association presents a scholarship each year to a graduating GHHS student who plans to pursue a college major in a fitness-

cling classic can also do so at the website, Whitley said. “We have a need for volunteers,” she said. “The more people who volunteer, the less that any one person has to do.” The race organizers get a lot of help from the parks and recreation department staff and from seniors who belong to the Grandview Center, Whitley said. The members from the Grandview Center serve as course marshals, making sure spectators are safe and stay away from the course, she said. “We couldn’t do this without the help we get from the parks staff and from the seniors,” Whitley said.

KINNARD Continued from page A1 programs. In that time, boys soccer became a varsity sport and a couple of years ago, we added swimming (and diving) and bowling,” Kinnard said. “Our facilities also have improved, but I don’t want to lead you to believe that I was responsible for that,” she said. “The Touchdown Club (football boosters) formed and were the movers and shakers behind putting artificial turf on the football field, and that has been a blessing for all of the fall teams as well as the spring sports.” Brian Schoch, who has been cross country and track and field coach for the Bobcats the past four seasons, said Kinnard helped his transition into the programs. “Kathy has been a great advocate for sports at Grandview,” he said. “Kathy is somebody who always has the kids’ best interest in mind. She was fun to work with and provided a lot of support to me as well as the other coaches and programs.” Girls tennis coach Steve Hall, who also spent 12 seasons leading the girls basketball program before resigning this spring, had high praise for Kinnard. “The thing with Kathy is regardless of what sport I was coaching, she always gave me her full support,” Hall said. “Another thing was that athletics at Grandview were more to her than just winning and losing, but it was about students participating in athletics and the experience they had in sports.” Kinnard said she has no plans for her retirement as of yet, but will spend time with her husband, Alan, and daughters Kelsey, who graduated this spring from Xavier University,

MUSIC and Kiley, who will be a sophomore at the high school. “I will probably miss the daily interaction most with colleagues and students,” she said. “Kiley will be a sophomore, so I’ll still be around. She was on the track and tennis teams, so I’ll be doing some of the volunteer duties that most parents will do, but I won’t have that daily interaction.” Kinnard, who graduated from and played tennis at Miami University, was an assistant in the girls tennis program from 197982 and head coach of the boys and girls tennis programs from 1985-87. She also was the yearbook adviser from 1990-98. After 17 years as athletics director, what advice would she offer her successor? “I think in a small-school setting like Grandview, administrators wear a lot of hats,” she said. “We don’t have a lot of delegation. Teachers and coaches help out with the events, but there is a lot to do. “In (grades) 7-12, there are a lot of activities in the fall and winter. You are there three or more nights during the week and on weekends. That’s the kind of thing that wears you down. You have to use some of the people around you because you can’t do it all.” O’Reilly said Kinnard has made an indelible mark on the district. “Between her classroom experiences and her work as AD, Kathy has had an impact on a large number of students,” O’Reilly said. “Since taking over as AD, she has sought ways to increase opportunities for our students and has done so. The program is much larger today than the day she took over.”

Continued from page A2 fun,” Workman said. “We were well enough focused that we didn’t see music as a career, but we sure had fun.” After college, as marriage and careers beckoned, the band disbanded, although Sproat kept a version of the group together. “He’s the mainstay through all the years,” Balser said. The four friends reunited in 1984 when they were asked to play a benefit for Children’s Hospital. Nowadays, the quartet performs once or twice a month, Workman said. Their concerts feature many of the ’60s soul and R’n’B classics they performed as teens, as well as songs from artists such as Three Dog Night and the Eagles. Playing music together after all these years is a gift they treasure, he said. “Imagine if you were an athlete in high school and you were able to get back and play with the same people, except you’re even better than you were in high school,” Workman said. “That’s what we get to do with music.” “We feel blessed for sure,” Balser said. “If you’re an athlete after 30 or 40 years, you’re going to lose your skills. We’re better know because we know what we’re doing. We have that experience as musicians.” Although as teens they were excited about being able to make a record, “I think we appreciate what we had back then a lot more now,” Wilson said. When they get together for rehearsals these days, the camaraderie they shared during their teens remains, Workman said. “We still tell the same kind of jokes and have the same kind of laughs,” he said. “It keeps you feeling young.”

Commentary and opinion Moment in time

Photo and information provided by the Grandview Heights/Marble Cliff Historical Society

The premier social event in the Tri-Village area from 1915 to 1925 was the annual Field Day Celebration, held on a Saturday in mid June. It featured a parade along First Avenue, games, all sort of contests, and a community dinner. Neighborhood streets prepared floats and competed for prizes. The competition was fierce and as many as 1,500 people participated in the parade. Pictured here are residents of Broadview Avenue. The date of this photograph is not known. The women are dressed as geishas and are being pulled in rickshaws by the men. It is obvious from this and other photographs that considerable effort went into the design and costumes. First Avenue was not paved and the tracks visible in the road were for electric streetcars.

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

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

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

Taste for Rafiki” will also be able to participate in a Best Wine Contest. Those who choose to participate in the contest will be asked to bring two bottles of wine, Hieatt said. One bottle will be used for the contest and the other will go into a pool of wines that will serve as the prizes for the winners. The winner of the Best Wine Contest will be determined by a vote of those attending the event, she said. The top three vote getters will each receive a portion of the wine pool. The evening will also include entertainment, hors d’oeuvres and light finger foods.

Athletes learn through sports 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. LARRY As in the LARSON 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 by allowing me to be competitive. I absolutely love playing soccer and basketball with a passion. I can’t imagine my life without the opportunity to compete day in and day out.” Chase Delande, Hilliard Davidson, football and wrestling: “For me it is really simple. Sports have made me a disciplined kid and a hard worker.”

Track & Field

Bobcats set 7 program records By SCOTT HENNEN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Grandview Heights High School boys and girls track and field teams broke seven program records this season and excelled in the Division III state meet June 3-4 at Ohio State. Senior Sarah Meier ended her prep career with all-state honors in three events. She placed second in the 300-meter hurdles (45.16 seconds), finished third in the 100 hurdles (15.33) and was a member of the sixth-place 1,600 relay (4:04.63) with junior teammates Jordan Fitzgerald, Caitlyn Sarich and Emily Lachey. Meier leaves the Bobcats with four records, three set this season. She broke the record in the 100 (12.75) on May 13 in the finals of the MSL-Cardinal Division meet at Berne Union. The previous mark of 13.1 was set by Angela Wilson in 1990. Meier ran a 14.7 to set the 100 hurdles record on May 27 in the regional meet at Fairfield Union, breaking the old mark of 15.39 set by Paige Lachey in 2009. Meier also broke her own 300 hurdles program record at regional with a meet-record 44.36. Meier also holds the record in the 200 (25.8), which she set last season. “I wanted to break 45 (seconds) in the 300 hurdles and I wanted to get below 16 (seconds) in the 100 hurdles and was able to get below 15,” said See LARSON, page B2 Meier, who will attend Ohio

State but won’t compete in track. “I have had shin splints for the last few years, so it will be good not to have that pain, but I will miss being a part of a team like this.” Senior Hannah Stefanoff, a Georgia State signee, finished fifth at state in the 3,200 (11:29.68). During the home

Bobcat Booster Invitational on April 29, she set the program record in the 3,200 (11:07), breaking the mark of 11:13.26 set by Alli Grace in 1998. Senior Joe Trapp, who finished fifth in the 200 (22.87) at state, set the program record for that event in the home Friday Night at Grandview Heights

meet on May 6. His 22.24 topped the 22.6 that Mitch Alderman ran in 1988. Trapp also was a member of two record-setting relays. The 400 relay, which included senior John Dickson, junior Jason Franks and senior Ryan Schofield, finished 13th (44.95) at state and set the program

record of 44.25 during Friday Night at Grandview Heights. That bettered the 45.1 set by Jarrod Tudor, Matt White, Zeke White and Eric Crabill in 1987. Trapp was a member of the 800 relay with Dickson, junior Evan Tillett and Schofield that finished 11th (1:32.08) at state. The foursome set the program record of 1:31.82 at regional to beat the time of 1:33.55 set by Ben Graves, Pat Muccio, Anthony Perez and Marcus Szabo in 2006. “I went into my senior season and didn’t think I had a chance to make it to state or set any records,” Trapp said. “It just goes to show you what can happen with hard work.” Also competing at state was the girls 3,200 relay of Emily Lachey, Stefanoff, sophomore Anna Davis and freshman Halli Bair, which finished 13th (10:01.98). The Bobcats girls tied Fort Loramie and Gates Mills Gilmour for eighth (21 points) at state behind champion Steubenville Catholic Central (41) as 71 teams scored. The boys tied for 48th (4) with eight other teams as 71 teams scored and McDonald (44) won the title. The girls were runners-up at regional with 57 points as 47 teams scored and WaynesfieldGoshen (71) won the title.

Ready continues youth movement in offseason By JARROD ULREY ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Ready quarterback Bo Hardy tries to keep his balance after being tripped up by Bubba Krieg of Lima Central Catholic during a game last season. Hardy, who passed for 1,043 yards last season, is expected to return this fall.

The youth movement that was forced on the Ready High School football team last season has continued this offseason. Although some of what was a large and talented freshman class won’t be playing the sport as sophomores, the Silver Knights’ strength still rests in their younger classes after they lost only 11 players to graduation. That has put a sense of urgency into offseason workouts for Ready, which is coming off a 4-6 record for its first losing season since 1998. “We’re lifting well and they’re getting stronger,” coach Larry Wolf said. “We’ve got a whole bunch of young kids. A lot of the freshmen we had last year won’t be coming back, but that’s the nature of the beast. We don’t know exactly what the numbers are

BOBCATS West Jefferson (43), Millersport (29.5) and Harvest Prep (10).

Because of them, every week has been fun and these kids loved competing. We’ll miss this group of seniors a lot.” Trapp believes the best is yet to come for the Bobcats. “I hope that (advancing to state in both the 400 and 800 relays) will show them what they are capable of doing next year,” he said. “They need to work on breaking our records in the relays and in the 200. I would kind of like to see those records up there for a couple of years, but I know these guys have the talent to break them.”

For the girls, Meier won the 100 hurdles (14.7) and 300 hurdles (44.36) and was fourth in the 200 (25.8) at regional to qualify for state in all three, as the top four in each event advanced.

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

Page B3

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

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

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!


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....
