Council fails to override mayor’s veto By LISA AURAND ThisWeek Community Newspapers Grove City Council on June 20 was one vote shy of overriding a veto of legislation to create a temporary park on the old lumberyard site behind City Hall. Council members Melissa Albright and Greg Grinch, who both voted against the original ordinance to appropriate

$80,500 toward the park’s construction, voted against overriding Mayor Richard “Ike” Stage’s veto. Council bylaws say overriding a mayoral veto requires the vote of four of council’s five members. The veto, which was announced June 14, is Stage’s first in his current term as mayor. Stage said at the time the decision was related to the timing of the proposed

park development. The city has put out a request for proposals (RFP) from developers for the entire town center. Developers have until June 16 to submit their plans. The city could have wasted money on the park if a private developer for the lot and the rest of the town center could be found, he said. “If we were going to do something of

this magnitude, we were going to do it right and not do it piecemeal,” Stage said June 20. “Putting a temporary park in there is not the best use of funds and certainly is contrary to something that will bring commerce (to the town center).” One proposal — from developer Pizzuti — was submitted by the June 16 deadline. Pizzuti identified three areas, one of which included the lumberyard

site, as sites with potential for redevelopment. “It’s a developer, fortunately, who is familiar with Grove City,” Stage said. “They submitted a proposal when we had an RFP in 2006, so they clearly have a high degree of interest, but the strategic piece is that (their proposal) is for See COUNCIL, page A2

Those living or working in Grove City can now be warned of any inclement weather via a quick phone notification from the city. The city of Grove City and the police department’s free service sends prerecorded messages to registered users during National Weather Service warnings for flash floods, tornadoes and severe thunderstorms that occur within the city’s 14 square miles. Users can opt to receive messages for any or all of the three types of weather warnings. The service’s online signup page became active about two weeks ago, and more than 100 people have registered, said Grove City communications supervisor Kelley Davidson. The service, part of the city’s contract with Twenty First Century Communications, Inc. costs $1,000 annually. In the event of a missed call, users could listen to the notification via voicemail or by calling back the number. Users registering cell phone numbers would receive both voice and text message warnings, Davidson said. The notification system provides people with an additional way to receive weather notifications, increasing their opportuSee PHONE, page A2

At age 18, Sgt. Paul Thurn was drafted during World War II and served in what was the beginning of the postwar occupation of Japan. In March of 2001 Thurn, now 85, a Grove City resident, returned to Japan to visit the places at which he was stationed, and this month he participated in the Honor Flight to Washington, D.C., visiting the World War II Memorial that honors veterans like himself. Accompanied by his daughter, Monica Walters, Thurn visited Washington, D.C., for a day. Upon arriving at Baltimore Washington International Airport, Thurn and other veterans were greeted by military and civilians. “Everybody was so very thankful to us for serving,” Thurn recalled. Thurn visited the World War II Memorial, the Marine War Memorial and the Air Force Memorial. He also took a tour of the city and saw the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery. “I thought it was very wonderful,” Thurn said. He was a few months shy of finishing high school at Aquinas College (now the site of Columbus State Community College) when he registered for service. He was allowed to graduate before being drafted. In 1944, Thurn started his service, traveling to Denver at what is now Lowry Air Force Base and serving as a firearms instructor. After the Japanese surrendered on Aug. 14, 1945, Thurn served in Tokyo and Nagoya in Japan as part of the Fifth Air Force of the U.S. Army Air Corps. The war was over when he arrived in Japan, Lorrie Cecil/ThisWeek but evidence of the conflict was widespread. In Paul Thurn was a member of the Army Air Corps 5th Air Force from 1944-46 and was part of the occupation force Tokyo, “there were many, many buildings that were destroyed,” Thurn said. in Japan following the end of World War II.

Grove City is gearing up for its fourth annual “Amazing Grove City” Race, held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. July 16 in the city. The competition will feature teams of two to four people age 12 or older completing challenges around the city. Brand new challenges are slated for this year’s event, said Grove City recreational coordinator Michele Demmy. Teams will begin at a common starting point. The remaining destinations unfold as the game progresses, Demmy said. The entire city is considered the competition area, and teams provide their own transportation, packing cars

Demmy said the goal is to “really highlight the fun opportunities within the Grove City area.” Sixteen teams participated in the first year and 20 participated in each of the following two years, Demmy said. Players compete rain or shine, both indoors and outdoors. Participants complete between 15 and 20 tasks, and the competition usually takes three to three and a half hours.

Sportsmanship is emphasized during the competition. Those who don’t play fairly might get a “flat tire,” a piece of paper with a picture of a flat tire, requiring them to stay put for two minutes during the race. “Every year, the teams who consistently lead throughout the race have a few things in common,” Demmy said. Successful teams enjoy competition, include both brains and brawn, read the instructions carefully and complete the tasks accurately.

all of the town center.” Stage said the city has had a few discussions with Pizzuti and plans to continue talking about what steps can be taken to prepare the city’s downtown for redevelopment. “We’re in due diligence mode right now,” Stage said. Council member Steve Bennett, who brought forward the proposal for the temporary park, said he will continue to do what he can to clean up the property, including the gravel parking lot on the north side that violates city code. “I don’t want to give up on (the park) because the people in the community are asking for it,” Bennett said. He said he is open to proposals for developing the property commercially, but is pessimistic that Pizzuti’s proposal will create change in the near future. “I’m not saying that we can’t

turn it into something that’s bigger and better,” Bennett said. “I think we’ve missed a golden opportunity.” Albright said she stuck with her original vote against developing the land as a park because she’d like to see what Pizzuti can

For example, residents working outside the city with children at home would still be notified. “It allows people to receive warning notifications when they’re in circumstances where they wouldn’t normally hear a tornado siren,” Davidson said. Additionally, the service enables users to receive inclement weather information without tuning in to the local media. “It enables people to get in touch with either safety services or at least make them aware to tune into local media to get the updates they need,” Davidson said. Users won’t receive a notification when the weather warning period ends, however, Davidson said. The city urges residents to seek additional information after receiving the notification. Those who register online at http://police.grovecityohio.gov can list up to five additional phone numbers on their account. Any Grove City address can be used, such as a home or work address, or even an address of a parent for monitoring purposes, Davidson said.

Veteran participates in trip to WWII memorial Continued from page A1 Despite not knowing the language, Thurn was able to communicate with the Japanese. “We didn’t understand each other very well, but we conversed,” Thurn said. “They were very friendly and nice.” Upon returning home, Thurn immediately went back to work for his family’s meat-processing business, A. Thurn Sons, on Greenlawn Avenue in Columbus. Thurn’s son-in-law, U.S. Marine Corps Reserve (Ret.) Master Sgt. Steve Walter, said his father-in-law was like many men and women of that time. “They saw it as their duty, they did their duty and then came home to continue their lives,” Walter said. Walter served in Vietnam in the U.S. Air Force with the 632nd Security Police Squadron at the Binh Thuy Air Base during the Vietnam War. Since the World War II era, “our military ventures have lacked that clarity and resolve,” Walter said. Now, during the War on Terror, the United States is fighting an idea rather than a nation, he said. Walter had a chance to assist those affected by the Iraq war during his work as a casualty assistance call officer for the U.S. Marines in Lima Company, 3rd Battalion. As a reservist, Walter was assigned to a peacetimewartime support team, which does community outreach. Walter accompanied three other Marines in notifying the

primary next of kin that a Marine had died or was killed in action. While another officer in charge delivered the news, Walter contacted the families regarding funeral arrangements. He handled five next-of-kin contacts. The last came after a Lima Company vehicle struck a mine on Aug. 3, 2005, killing nine Marines in Al Anbar province in western Iraq. As a sergeant with the Columbus Police Department, Walter

said he earlier had to deliver calls for serious injuries. “The wisdom of middle age gave me an insight in what to say when, or more importantly, when to say nothing,” he said. Participating in the calls for the Lima Company Marines “was like taking a slice out of my arm,” Walter said. Lima Company sent 164 Marines to Iraq in March. Twenty-two Marines and one Navy corpsman were killed in action.

Indian-trail lore doesn’t always match fact Many people find Indian trails especially intriguing. The notion that we may be walking (or, more often, driving) on the same path taken by the Shawnee, Wyandot or Mingo residents of central Ohio gives ED us a living link to the past. LENTZ In an age increasingly made of plastic and microchips, there is something reassuring about the idea that we still follow the same roads used by others for hundreds of years. And we do follow those previous paths … more or less. Just as there is something magical in being able to touch a piece of the past in the roads we travel, so, too, there is more than a little myth. In other words, while Ohioans still use former Indian trails to travel around the state, they are not always exactly what we think they are. There are other parts of the Ohio story that have a similar propensity. The Underground Railroad was neither underground nor a railroad. Rather, it was a network of daring people, black and white, who helped runaway slaves escape to freedom in Canada in the years before the American Civil War. “Stations” on the Underground Railroad might be a barn, a sheltered ravine or even an occasional secret room in a local house. Today, many older houses in the area are offered for sale with the wistful suggestion that the place was “rumored” to be a stop

Letter Mayor praised For ‘terrific job’ To the editor: I think Mayor Richard “Ike” Stage has done a terrific job through the years for the city of Grove City. I’ve known Ike for 35 years and first met him when we were both members of Sertoma (Service to Mankind), where he was a tireless worker and volunteer. Ike has always tried to do what’s best for Grove City and its residents. It shows in a great infrastructure that includes parks, roads, shopping and job opportunities which in turn attract developments such as the Pinnacle. These things we can all enjoy and be proud of. Mayor Stage also has focused on helping various charities through fundraisers, and with his leadership Grove City has secured various grant money, most recently more than $6 million to make further improvements. I for one feel fortunate to have him as mayor and hope you’ll all join me in saying, “Job well done, Ike.” Roy Steinhoff Grove City

on the Underground Railroad. Most of these places were no such thing. Running a station on the Underground Railroad was illegal and dangerous. Most people did not take the risk. But the legend persists. A similar sort of gloss covers the story of the Scioto Trail. Native American people had lived in Ohio for thousands of years before the arrival of European explorers only a few hundred years ago. The earliest residents of Ohio were few in number and generally lived their lives following the animal herds then living in the state. So the earliest trails were those made by the buffalo, deer and other animals. Eventually, the roaming stopped and more permanent towns were built. The people who built them constructed earthen monuments and enclosures and later came to be called the Moundbuilders. Central Ohio is rich in the remains of these prehistoric people, although we are not as rich as we once were. While a 40-foot mound at the south end of what is now downtown Columbus is remembered by the name of Mound Street, the mound itself is long gone, as are many more around Ohio. All of these Moundbuilder villages were linked by trails, as well. Some are the same that will be used by later residents of the state. Many are not. Most of the major Indian trails that will be remembered and later marked as such date from the relatively recent history of the past few hundred years when English, French and later American colonial travelers came to Ohio and left a record of what they found. What would come to be called the Bullskin Trail, the Great Trail and the Scioto Trail were undoubtedly once animal trails be-

fore they began to be used by people. And these trails also quite probably changed in course and location with the passage of time. As early European settlers came to Ohio, they followed these same trails and made them their own. Eventually, they would become roads of greater or lesser permanence. Because downtown Columbus sits on a ridge and once had a large mound in its midst, it is easy to presume that what is now High Street must have been a major Indian trail. That is partly right. High Street was indeed an Indian trail, but it was not a major one. Indian trails in central Ohio generally seek high ground because it is dry and clear for much of the year. Until well into the 19th century, most Ohio rivers looked very different than they do today. They were generally wider and deeper and flanked on each side by large areas of low-lying wetlands. They were hard places to travel through. Similarly, the high ridge on the east side of the Scioto was punctuated by deep ravines every mile or two. These ravines and their attendant creeks and wetlands made travel difficult as well. For these and other reasons, the Scioto Trail linking Lake Erie to the Ohio River skirted west of what is now downtown Columbus and traveled north following the ridge line separating the Scioto and Olentangy river valleys. That original route is not all that wellmarked and certainly is not as well-traveled. In the years after the American Revolution, the smaller, less-used trail east of the Scioto came to be used more and more to link the villages of central Ohio. When a

AS IT WERE Continued from page A4 private company built the first major road to the Lake Erie towns, it came to be called the Columbus and Sandusky Turnpike. The turnpike was not very successful. Badly constructed and poorly maintained, the road was a sea of mud in the spring and impassable in the winter. And despite these problems, the road continued to charge a toll. When the company finally closed, many people were pleased. But the Columbus and Sandusky Turnpike demonstrated that the route was correct for a properly constructed road. It would take many years and a number of other challenges before U.S. Route 23 became that road. In all, it is the story of a road less-traveled becoming a path of choice of central Ohio. Ed Lentz writes a history column for ThisWeek.

In brief Auditor plans meetings on reappraisal process Franklin County auditor Clarence Mingo will host three townhall meetings to discuss the 2011 reappraisal and its impact on taxpayers in the coming weeks at library locations throughout the county. These meetings will be held: • Tuesday, June 28, at the Westerville Public Library • Thursday, June 30, at the Upper Arlington Public Library • Wednesday, July 6 at the Columbus Metropolitan Library Each town-hall meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. with a question-and-answer session to follow. The Ohio Revised Code Section 5713.01(B) requires that each county auditor revalue all real property once in each sixyear period and update those values in the third year following each reappraisal. The 2011 reappraisal represents that six-year period. The Franklin County auditor last reappraised all real property for tax year 2005. As a result of market conditions, the majority of residential properties received no value changes for the 2008 update year. The taxes based on the new values will be payable in 2012. Each property owner in the county will receive a letter from Mingo in August informing them of the new tentative value of their home or business property. For more information, visit www.franklincountyauditor.com or call (614) 525-HOME (4663).

Football

Eagles working to get stronger, faster By FRANK DiRENNA ThisWeek Community Newspapers Grove City Christian School football coach Kerry Owens has put an emphasis on two major aspects during the offseason — strength and speed. In his first season as coach last year, the Eagles finished 3-7. Grove City Christian was coming off a 2009 season in which it reached a Division VI state semifinal before losing to eventual state champion Norwalk 52-7. The Eagles finished 12-2.

The Eagles got off to a slow start last season, losing their first four games by a combined score of 177-48. They played better in the second half of the season, winning three of their final six games. Owens hopes to build on that success this offseason with a conditioning program, which includes weightlifting, speed drills and agility drills. “We’ve had our best offseason so far in our program’s history,” Owens said. “We’ve had good attendance, we’ve had good gains, we’ve switched some things

up and we’ve concentrated on a lot of speed, agility and flexibility drills, more than what we have in the past.” The Eagles finished last season with approximately 20 players on the roster, but Owens expects approximately 35 players for the 2011 season. He credits a deep freshman class as a key to the increase. The increased numbers allow Owens to reinstate a junior varsity, which was eliminated last season because of the limited roster. “There’s more interest,” Owens said.

“We did not have a big senior class. We didn’t graduate a whole lot of kids, and we have a big freshman class and we have a few kids that didn’t play in the past who have come back. “Half of our team is going to be freshmen, which is good and bad. The bad thing is they’re young and the good thing is they’re there and we have them for four years.” The OHSAA allows 10 days during the offseason in which coaches can work with players. Owens will utilize most of those days for a summer camp in July

as well as participating in two 7-on-7 drills, including one at Grandview. “We have it planned out,” Owens said. “It will be a combination of offense and defense. It’s a good chance for us to get these young kids involved because we are going to have a lot of freshmen at camp. They’ll get a chance to start to understand the offense and defense and the terminology of things.” Grove City Christian is looking to replace nine players who graduated, See FOOTBALL, page B2

Club Soccer

Local teams set for regional By AARON BLANKENSHIP ThisWeek Community Newspapers

A central Ohio club soccer team has won a Midwest Regional Cup title each of the past two summers after local squads failed to do so the previous six years. The Blast F.C. Under-15 boys team won a Regional Cup in 2009, and the Crew Juniors U19 boys squad won regional Team and national previews, championships pgs. B2, B4 last year. Heading into the 2011 Regional Cup tournament, which will be held Saturday through Wednesday, June 2529, in Fox Cities, Wis., Crew Juniors U-19 boys coach Brian Bliss said he wouldn’t be surprised if a central Ohio squad won a regional championship for the third consecutive season. However, Bliss said it will be difficult for the five local boys teams and four local girls squads to win their age brackets regardless of their talent level. “Sometimes it’s more difficult to win the Regional Cup than the By Paul Vernon/ThisWeek national tournament because you have to play five games in five The West’s Christian Smurthwaite, a Grove City graduate, tries to get past Colin Merrill of the East on punt coverage during the Cap City Senior Bowl on June 18 at days in the regional tournament Westerville Central. and there’s very little room for error,” Bliss said. “A lot of people have forgotten, but we were three minutes away from being eliminated from pool play in the regional tournament last year before we rallied (for a 3-1 win over Everest Soccer Club) to reach the semifinals.

2011 Midwest Regional Cup

Team Ohio F.C.

Green U-17 boys eye Midwest title By AARON BLANKENSHIP ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Rosters

The Team Ohio F.C. Green Under-17 boys soccer team surprised many, including coach Steve Dawson, by winning the State Cup tournament for the first time in four years. After beating the CUP Crew Juniors 3-2 in a semifinal on May 14, Team Ohio defeated the Blast F.C. 1-0 in the final on May 15 as forward Sam Darling scored and A.J. Tresoline earned the shutout in goal. The CUP Crew Juniors were the No. 1 seed in the tournament and the Blast F.C. won a Regional Cup title and finished fifth in the national tournament two years ago. Given its State Cup performance, Dawson said he wouldn’t be surprised if his team continued to earn upsets in the 2011 Midwest Regional Cup tournament, which will be held Saturday through Wednesday, June 25-29, in Fox Cities, Wis. “This team doesn’t have a lot of players who are big stars and I thought we’d be doing well to get to the semifinals in the State Cup,” Dawson said. “But we shocked CUP, which was stronger than us talent-wise, player for player, and we upset the Blast in the final against all odds, and our players have a lot of confidence right now. This team has come on like gangbusters at the right time and is on a roll. If we continue playing like this in the regional tournament, I think we can keep winning there.” This will be Team Ohio’s first Regional Cup appearance since going 1-1-1 in pool play as a U13 team in 2007. Team Ohio will open pool play June 25 against ShattuckSt. Mary’s from Minnesota before playing June 26 against Elm Grove (Wis.) Premier and June 27 against the Grand Rapids (Mich.) Crew Juniors. The Grand Rapids Crew Juniors are first in the U.S. Region 2 club soccer rankings ahead of Elm Grove Premier (10th) and Team Ohio (26th). “We feel like we have a great chance to do well, even though we may be the lowest-ranked team going there,” defender A.G. Basiakos said. “We’re not the most talented team, but we can win games if we play tough defensively and continue to outwork our opponents.” Dawson said Basiakos and Tresoline will need to lead his defense, while Darling is expected to spark his offense. Darling also scored two goals in Team Ohio’s State Cup semifinal win. “A.G. is our captain and strongest player in the back, and A.J. has been playing great in

felt could compete at the top level, and this team has lost only one game since December,” Dawson said. “It’s a strange team because we’ve had a lot of injuries and our practices haven’t been fantastic, but it keeps winning games.” In pool play, Team Ohio Blast will face CUP Crew Juniors from Cincinnati on June 25, the Michigan Wolves on June 26 and the KCFC Rangers from Kansas on June 27. In the U.S. Region 2 club soccer rankings, the KCFC Rangers are eighth, the Michigan Wolves are 15th and the CUP Crew Juniors are 35th. “We got an OK draw, but all of our pool play games are going to be tough,” Dawson said. “We’re a streaky team in that sometimes we score a lot and other times we win games 1-0. This team has some of the best high school players in the area and we haven’t been dominated by anyone, so I think we’ll be competitive in every game in this tournament.” •The Team Ohio F.C. Juventus U-16 boys team, which lost to the CUP Crew Juniors 3-1 in a State Cup final on May 15, received a wildcard to advance to the Regional Cup tournament for the third consecutive year. Team Ohio went 2-0-1 and won its pool in the Regional Cup two years ago, before losing to St. Louis SG Academy 2-0 in a semifinal. Last year in the Regional Cup, Team Ohio went 1-2 in pool play. “This team has been disjointed up to this point in the season, but we have a lot of talented players such as Tyler Kidwell, Rylee Woods, Alex Polko, Gunnar Bloecher and Alec Binger,” Dawson said. “This team underachieved this year, but we can win at regional if we play together like we have in the past. This is a chance to rectify not playing up to potential in the State Cup.” In pool play, Team Ohio will face the Lemont (Ill.) Raiders on June 25, WAZA West Black from Michigan on June 26 and KCFC United from Kansas on June 27. In the U.S. Region 2 club soccer rankings, Team Ohio is fifth behind the Lemont Raiders (No. 1) and ahead of WAZA West Black (14th) and KCFC United (21st). “Our experience (in past Regional Cup tournaments) should help because playing at a higher level gets you prepared for this kind of game speed,” goalkeeper Trent Rantala said. “The key for us is to keep possession and link passes to get an attack going.”

Eagles U-18 girls team emphasizing defense By AARON BLANKENSHIP

As the Ohio Premier Eagles Under-18 girls soccer team conducted drills in its indoor facility June 17, coach Chris King halted practice three times to emphasize the importance of taking away passing lanes in the center of the field. Moments later, King was shouting words of praise and encouragement as his players clogged those seams and deflected the ball to the perimeter again and again. At the conclusion of practice, King said his team will need to continue playing defense with that same level of enthusiasm to be a true contender in the Midwest Regional Cup tournament, which will be held Saturday through Wednesday, June 25-29, in Fox Cities, Wis. “This is stuff that we’ve gone through hundreds of times at this stage of their careers, but doing the basic things right in a tournagoal,” Dawson said. “Sam’s one ment like this is what makes the of the fastest players in the state. difference,” King said. “All of the Overall, this is one of the least teams that we’ll see there will be highly skilled, but the teams that heralded teams on paper.

Players from the City, Central Catholic and Mid-State leagues and the OCC were added, with Interstate 71 as a dividing line. The name of the game was changed last summer, when the East beat the West 22-0. “Last year we had kids from Olentangy Orange becoming friends with kids who live on (Columbus’) west side in the ‘Bottoms’ and picking them up for practice,” Murphy said. “The guys really build relationships out of this and it goes deeper than football.”

“We really executed our offense in the first half, but I think we got a little bit too conservative in the second half,” said East coach Jeff Pharion, who is the head coach at St. Charles. “We kept it simple with schemes and blitzes defensively, and we executed very well.” The West only crossed midfield twice in the first half. Whetstone running back Jordan Mitchell (Urbana) made it 14-7 when he reversed field and scored on an 18-yard run with 11:35 left in the fourth quarter.

The Crew Juniors Under-19 boys soccer team played stifling defense en route to winning the Midwest Regional Cup and the U.S. Youth Soccer Association National Championships last year. The squad posted two shutouts and gave up five goals in five games in the regional tournament. In the national tournament, the Crew Juniors earned two shutouts and gave up three goals in four contests. The team now features a roster that coach Brian Bliss said likely will utilize a more offensive style of play in the 2011 Midwest Regional Cup, which will be held Saturday through Wednesday, June 25-29, in Fox Cities, Wis. “Last year’s team was probably a bet-

ter-defending group, but we’re stronger on the attack this year,” Bliss said. “That’s not to say that we’re going to leak a lot of goals, because our defending group isn’t poor. I’m just saying we have more creativity and speed on the attacking end of the field, so we won’t have to rely on our defense as much as we did last year. We have the firepower to come from behind to win games if we need to, so we have the option of being more aggressive.” The Crew Juniors feature two members of the U.S. U-20 National Team in forward Dylan Mares and defender Eriq Zavaleta, along with two members of the U.S. U-18 National Team in forward Chris Hegngi and midfielder A.J. Corrado. Five players who competed in the 2010 NCAA Division I championship game, in which Akron defeated Louisville 1-0, also play for the Crew Juniors, including

Akron goalkeeper Andrian McAdams and Akron midfielder Kyle Culbertson. Mares and midfielders Andrew Farrell and Alex Obbey competed for Louisville. The Crew Juniors went 3-0 in the State Cup tournament and outscored their opponents 11-0, including a 2-0 win over the Blast F.C. in the final on June 5. “This team is equal to, if not slightly better than, last year’s U-19 team,” Bliss said. “But we’ll need to play well and there’s always an element of luck involved in winning any championship. Hopefully, we’ll play well enough to make our own luck, like we did last year.” The Crew Juniors will open pool play June 25 against St. Croix from Minnesota before playing June 26 against the Chicago Fire Juniors and June 27 against the Des Moines (Iowa) Menace. Last year in the Regional Cup, the Crew

Juniors 4-2 on penalty kicks. Nick Teutsch, Tyler Stills, Cameron Campbell and Will Bolton scored and goalkeeper J.P. Baughman made a save to secure the victory. “I’m of the opinion that defense wins championships, and we did a great job of defending in the State Cup tournament,” Lentz said. “We don’t just bunker it in, though. We have kids who can play and score goals, but we’re very organized on the field and we’re able to fight and grind out wins when we need to.” The Classics Eagles will open Midwest Regional Cup pool play on June 25 against the Wichita (Kan.) Lightning before playing June 26 against Vardar from Michigan and June 27 against Cleveland Pacesetter. In the U.S. Region 2 club soccer rankings, the Classics Eagles are 18th and Vardar is fifth. In the State Cup tournament, the Classics Eagles upset the Crew Juniors 2-0 in pool play on May 15 before beating the

Crew Juniors again in the final. Teutsch scored winning goals in the Classics Eagles’ 4-0 win over Hammer F.C. Premier on May 8, their first victory over the Crew Juniors and their 1-0 win over the Ohio Premier Eagles in a semifinal on May 21. The Crew Juniors are fourth in the U.S. Region 2 club soccer rankings. “Because we’re a new club and not a household name, we may be considered an underdog, but we beat a very good Crew Juniors team twice to get this far, so I’m confident we can compete at this level,” Lentz said. “Vardar is one of the best teams in our region, so we’ll need to play great defense and find a way to score enough goals to win. Our goalie and two center backs, Mark Just and Will Bolton, have played together since they were 9 years old, and we’ve got some technically gifted midfielders and forwards.” ablankenship@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com

In the final on May 22, the Classics Eagles defeated the Crew Juniors 1-0 on penalty kicks.

It’s very difficult to win this tournament because you play five games in five days. There’s a small margin for error in this tournament. Last year we (were) three minutes away from being eliminated from group play before going on to win the regional and national tournaments.”

long way.” •The Ohio Premier Eagles U19 girls team earned its second consecutive State Cup title on June 5 when it beat CUP 1-0 in the final. Last year in the Regional Cup tournament, the Ohio Premier Eagles went 1-2 in pool play and failed to reach a semifinal. “Most of these girls have played together for seven years, and when they returned home from college, you would never know they’ve been apart for a year because they play so well together,” coach Matt Ogden said. “They already know our system and their chemistry is still great. They know each other inside-out, and that gives us an advantage over a lot of U-19 teams that have been put together with players who are still getting to know each other.” The Ohio Premier Eagles will open pool play on June 25 against Dynamo F.C. from Indiana before playing Eclipse Select from Illinois on June 26 and Bloomfield Force from Michigan on June 27. Eclipse Select is first in the U.S. Region 2 club soccer rankings, ahead of Dynamo F.C. (15th) and the Ohio Premier Eagles (17th). “Our draw looks very difficult because Illinois, Michigan and Indiana are all very competitive states,” Ogden said. “But at U-19, you never know who will return to play for their teams. With who we have back we’re confident we can play with anyone in the country. We’re going to play a 4-3-3. ... We use an attacking style that sometimes leaves us vulnerable in the back, but we’ve done well with it.” •The Ohio Premier Eagles U13 girls team qualified for the Regional Cup by winning its second consecutive State Cup title.

First, it’s great that you are aware of the risks and are seeking ways to protect yourself before you become a victim. It’s much easier to take precautions now than have to restore your identity and reputation later. Being away from home and in unfamiliar places could bring increased risk to consumers, opening doors to thieves. More purchases than usual are made this time of the year, as well, so additional withdrawals might go unnoticed until you get back to home base. Your identity could be stolen in a number of ways, including loss or theft of your wallet, purse or credit card; stealing your mail or taking documents from your trash; skimming information from the magnetic strip on credit or debit cards; giving personal or financial information over the phone to strangers; or hacking into your computer.

Also watch out for people hovering near you or using a camera phone. Being extra aware of your surroundings and always being organized also make you more focused and alert so you can spot potential problems.
