Schools: Levy request coming in fall By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Dublin City Schools will seek voter approval on an operating levy in the fall, but for now, how much remains undetermined. Board members expressed unanimous support during a May 25 meeting to go Stephen on the ballot for the district’s next oper- Osborne

ating levy in November, keeping to a schedule planned when voters approved the 2008 levy. “We are maintaining the 2008 commitment that we will not be back (on the ballot) until 2011,” treasurer

Stephen Osborne said last week. “There will be no collection (of levy funds) until 2013.” The district passed a 7.9-mill permanent operating levy in 2008, along with a $50-million bond issue, and promised voters the collection of its next levy would not begin until 2013. Osborne said the district has been talking with the community and weighing

its options for a few months. Several elements, such as timing, the economy and the proposed state budget, went into considerations. The district is expecting $13.7 million in cuts coming from the proposed two-year state budget that currently is under consideration in the Senate. The biggest reductions in funding will come from the accelerated phase-out of tangible-personal-property-tax reim-

bursements. The district expected $10 million annually from the reimbursements but will see millions in cuts over the next two years. Dublin City Schools will see an 18-percent cut in foundation funding from the state. Osborne said November ballot issues typically are a bigger draw, which is “faSee SCHOOL BOARD, page A2

Dublin still is evaluating a decision handed down by the 3rd District Court of Appeals last week. The decision upheld a previous ruling made by Union County Court of Common Pleas Judge Don Fraser, rejecting Dublin’s request to return land it had acquired in 2008. Both courts said Dublin could not return two of three parcels of land because it already had taken possession. “Right now, the city is evaluating the decision to determine the next steps,” public-information officer Sue Burness said. The decision handed down May 23 is part of a longstanding legal battle between Dublin and landowner John Wirchanski. In 2006, Dublin started design and construction plans for improvements at the U.S. Route 33/state Route 161/Post Road interchange but needed three parcels of almost 20 acres of farmland owned by Wirchanski. Dublin took the land through eminent domain and paid Wirchanski $6.88 million. See CITY MULLING, page A4

‘EAZ’ district designed to hasten approval By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers Dublin intends to lure more business to the Central Ohio Innovation Corridor with a quick and easy zoning process. Dublin City Council members last week approved a resolution to add an economic advancement zone in the COIC district to the 2007 community plan and heard the first read-

ing of amendments to the zoning code for that district. Both resolutions before council last week focused on the EAZ, which “is an area poised for significant change,” the city’s website states. “With approximately 1,100 acres of land located between Avery Road, Houchard Road, Shier Rings Road and state Route 161/Post Road, the EAZ is a key portion of the Central Ohio Innovation Corridor targeted

for office, research, laboratory and clean manufacturing uses. With a focus on ‘speed to build,’ the area is a focus for quality projects requiring quick administrative approval.” According to planner Carson Combs, the EAZ will “help foster development and redevelopment in the area.” With the EAZ added to Dublin’s 2007 community plan, the next step is amending the zoning code for the


EAZ’s four innovation districts. Amendments to the code went before council last week for a first reading. The second and final reading is slated for June 13. The EAZ’s four innovation districts are research office, research flex, research assembly and mixedused tech. The districts are a “substantial

A few days after the Dublin school district’s administration announced it would forgo a 1.25percent raise next year, teachers voted on concessions that are expected to save the district about $1.9 million. The Dublin Educators Association voted to give back 66 percent of all scheduled pay increases for the 2011-12 financial year, including both the scheduled 1.25-percent raise and any step increases. “Today, members of the Dublin Educators Association took the budget crisis facing the Dublin City School District into their own hands,” a statement released last week from DEA president Kevin Griffin said. “They voted overwhelmingly to cut their salaries and to give back to the district an estimated $1.9 million in previously negotiated raises.” The DEA represents more than 1,150 teachers, nurses, guidance counselors and speech therapists.

School board: Levy request coming in fall Continued from page A1 vorable” for school issues. Because the district wouldn’t begin new levy collections until the beginning of 2013, it could wait until November 2012 to go on the ballot, but Osborne said the district typically goes on the ballot a year early to maintain a safety net. “We have gone a year early for several years,” he said. A levy discussion during an early May school board meeting drew concerns about voter turnout generated by the Senate Bill 5 referendum that likely will be on the ballot in the fall, but Osborne countered concerns last week. “I don’t know how it will affect the levy,” he said. “People brought out for S.B. 5 are teachers and police.” If the district would wait until November 2012 to go on the ballot, reductions would have to be made, Osborne said. “I’ve never had so many factors weigh in (on a levy decision),” he said. Osborne’s recommendation gained support from SuperinDavid Axner tendent David Axner.

“We can go when we said we were going or wait until the presidential election, but we would have to make reductions,” he said. “I don’t think that would be fair to the district.” Reductions are not out of the question, Axner said, adding that some cuts would come to keep a levy request low. Board member Scott Melody said a 2011 ballot issue “is the right thing for the district.” “If we wait until 2012, we’re putting all our eggs in one basket,” board member Gwen Callender said. “If we don’t get this passed now, … at least we’ll have another shot.” The district will get a later-than-usual start on the levy campaign and fundraising, but board members informally agreed November is the best time to request a levy. “It’s the smart thing to do,” board president Lynn May said. According to Osborne, the board needs to pass two resolutions by the first week of August to place a levy on the ballot. A proposed millage amount for the levy likely will come in July, he Lynn May said.

In her new Dublin space, Crum said, she still tries to stock her shelves with items that help the poor or the earth. A few pieces of jewelry are made by a group of women in Guatemala.

Susie Crum intends to offer something old, something new and something green with her new Historic Dublin shop, Clover Boutique. The business that boasts new, vintage and eco-friendly wares, such as clothing, gifts, house wares and jewelry, opened at 48 S. High St. on May 20. Crum, a Dublin native who currently lives in Ostrander, said she has had her sights set on Dublin for a while. “I grew up in Dublin, so I’ve always had my eye on it,� she said. “Then I found the perfect opportunity.� Clover Boutique isn’t Crum’s first foray into the retail business. A teacher for 20 years, Crum also owned Because Boutique in downtown Delaware for two-and-a-half

Crum also tries to offer local and American-made items when she can, including children’s clothes made by a Delaware mother. Offerings at Clover Boutique are random. Crum said she goes for whimsical, fun and elegant items she can find for a good price. New items are acquired at shows, online or even on her travels. A blow-up beach ball that features the earth — a real satellite picture — was found while on vacation in Florida. “I went to a sample sale at the Columbus Marketplace. It’s now in Dublin. They had great stuff,� she said. “I try to find stuff at a good price point so you don’t have to feel guilty about it.� Vintage items such as jewelry and china come from garage sales, antiques malls and flea markets. “I travel and shop. That’s what I do in my free time,� Crum said.

She said she tries to appeal to various styles and ages with scarves, tops, dresses, rings and even a few toys. She also showcases items with a “thought board� posted on the wall, showing out-

fits complete with accessories. A top displayed in the High Street-facing window has nearly sold out in less than a week, she said. Clover Boutique is open from

11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Crum said she is looking at Monday hours or extended hours during the summer.

City mulling move after losing appeal

June 2, 2011


Continued from page A1 161 Martin Rd.

A closer look


Wirchanski, believing the land was worth $8 million to $8.9 million, disputed the city’s appraisal, and litigation between the two parties continued until April 2010, when Dublin filed a notice of partial abandonment of two parcels, or about 15 acres. The abandonment followed the city’s move to delay improvements to the interchange when development slowed in the area because of the recession and a legal battle regarding sewer service with Marysville. Several improvements, including the construction of a cloverleaf interchange, were planned at the interchange to serve the planned Central Ohio Innovation Corridor. The development was to be anchored by a cancertreatment center, but the agreement fell through in 2009 after the developer was unable to secure financing. After that deal fell

In 2006, Dublin started design and construction plans for improvements at the U.S. Route 33/state Route 161/Post Road interchange but needed three parcels of almost 20 acres of farmland owned by John Wirchanski. Dublin took the land through eminent domain and paid Wirchanski $6.88 million.

through, improvements to the area were put on hold. Only two parts of a seven-phase project have been completed thus far. The city has completed some state Route 161 improvements and the relocation of Industrial Parkway. The project also included the installation of two roundabouts. Other parts of the project, in-

cluding the relocation of Eiterman Road and interchange improvements, have been delayed. None of the remaining improvements have been scheduled in Dublin’s five-year capital-improvement plan. “The city will continue to evaluate opportunities for development and will adjust programming based on those opportunities,” the CIP states.

Teachers to take cut in raises next year Continued from page A1 cision during a May 25 board meeting. “I’m so excited because we were ready to cut … 24 teachers tonight,” he said. With an estimated $13.7 million in state funding reductions over the next two years, Axner has said classroom size would increase and program offerings would be reduced. “The substantial giveback will help 20 teachers hold their jobs,” Axner said. Griffin said the giveback was discussed when the district started looking into funding cuts included in the proposed two-year state budget that initially had the district losing $14.5 million. “As soon as we found out the district was going to lose $14.5 million from the state budget, we started talking about how we could save some jobs and keep class sizes down,” he said. “This was the solution which was voted on on Wednesday.” A 1.25-percent raise was slated for DEA members for the 2011-12 fiscal year. Teachers also receive step increases based on years of experience and education. Both pay increases will be reduced by 66 percent. “So if a teacher’s raise and step increase was a total of $1,500, they are giving the district back $1,000, which is more than doing one or

the other, although the formula will affect each teacher differently,” Griffin said. The concessions should save the district about $1.9 million next year, thus helping to offset the $13.7-million reduction in the state budget as it currently stands. The district stands to lose funding from tangible-personal-property-tax reimbursements and state foundation funding. More than $6 million in cuts are expected next year and $7 million in 2013. The state budget could see changes, though. The Senate must vote on the budget before it is sent back to the House of Representatives for another vote. If the two bodies can’t agree, a committee of both House and Senate members will work toward an agreement. The budget must be passed by the end of the month. The new fiscal year begins in July. The Dublin Board of Education recently agreed to put an operating levy on the ballot this fall. The district last went to voters in 2008 and promised not to return until 2011. The district will not begin collections on a levy until 2013, officials have said. District treasurer Stephen Osborne said a concrete levy proposal with a millage amount should go before the school board in July.

Are You Counting On Technology To Save You?

Commentary & opinion Columbus2020!

Central Ohio’s prospects for job growth are promising Pharmaceutical companies often are judged by their “pipeline” of future products. Their stock price could fluctuate on the value of this pipeline and the potential it has to drive future revenue. The Columbus2020! initiative also tracks its pipeline of potential projects, those competitive initiatives that could add jobs and investment in the Columbus region. A close analysis likely would warrant a “buy” recommendation if the Columbus region were selling shares of stock. The Columbus2020! initiative’s pipeline comprises companies that aren’t here yet but that are considering central Ohio for new facilities, as well as existing companies that are considering expansion locally and a host of new enterprises that are being developed through TechColumbus and at satellite entrepreneurial centers throughout the area. One thing is clear: The level of activity is up compared to the past several years, and our prospects for the future are bright. A closer look at the new companies looking at our region shows that 58 percent of the projects are small- to medium-size operations in the advanced-manufacturing sector; 28 percent are international companies considering the United States, and a framework for headquarters and back-office projects has the potential to create hundreds of jobs. Projects are being sourced from nearly every corner of the nation, and each international mission is creating qualified projects.

The region’s technology incubators and entrepreneurial centers are nearing capacity in KENNY Columbus, MCDONALD Dublin and New Albany, driven by market opportunities in the advanced-energy, advancedmaterials, information-technology and medical-healthcare sectors. It is a testament to the efforts of state and local leaders that such operations exist to nurture these new enterprises that represent the future of central Ohio. As another indicator, in 2010 funding for local startups reached new heights as a record-setting

117 promising young companies received $307.56 million in innovation capital to fuel the growth of their businesses. This is a 73percent increase over 2009. TechColumbus has the entire report online at The Columbus area has to compete to win these projects, and the companies have to execute on their plans for our potential to be realized, but the market potential is there. The Columbus region has a lot to feel good about: Its future prospects for job growth and investment look great. Kenny McDonald is chief economic officer for Columbus2020!

City news Bridge Street information available during open house City staff members will be on hand from 2 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 8, at the Dublin Community Recreation Center, 5600 Post Road, to offer information on the Bridge Street corridor plan.

The open house will be the second the city has held for landowners and the public. The open house follows a joint meeting among council and zoning commissions and board that covered the transportation, water, sewer, stormwater and fiscal analysis, in addition to a code update required for the Bridge Street corridor plan.

HURRY IN! These Deals Won’t Last!

COIC ZONING PROCESS Continued from page A1 modification” to existing COIC regulations, the staff memo to council stated. “Modification of the existing COIC district code corresponds to changed development expectations that include shifting urban development to the Bridge Street corridor and considering the EAZ as a more suburban office and research area that maintains focus on administrative approvals.” The architecture within the district will be contemporary, the memo stated, with a focus on naturalized landscaping and pedes-

trian and bicycle mobility. Although the districts focus on high-quality development, most of the changes have to do with a speedier approval time, which council member Marilee Chinnici-Zuercher questioned. “I couldn’t see how a developer could reduce time,” she said. The proposed code amendments would mean fewer trips to the city in the permit process, Combs said. “The whole point is to work more one-on-one collaboratively,” he said. “When (the developer) actually submits the application, it’s ready.”

Combs said staff members would work more with developers to advance better development plans that would be subject to administrative review. The development plan could go before the planning and zoning commission if it is rejected by the administrative review team or does not meet innovation district requirements, the proposed code states. After administrative review approval, applicants may apply for a certificate-of-zoning plan and building permit, the proposed code states. Combs said the process would take 60 to 90 days.

Dublin City Schools officials are looking into a partnership that could give University of Toledo-bound students as much as $10,000. The school board last week heard details on a proposal from UT that could help students with the costs of college. Coffman High School counselor Jim Bauer said the district sends students all over the nation and even the world for college. UT, however, is trying to get students to think about college early with the scholarship program, he said. “It reinforces the idea that college is a reality, not just a dream,” he said. Under the proposal, students could sign up for a scholarly savings account in which UT would deposit $2,000 a year for five years. If the student decides to

According to Bauer, this would help students with a 3.0 GPA get access to scholarships. Normally, the higher-performing students are offered the financial help. “The first high school seniors to get this payout would be the class of 2016,” he said. “They would start this in eighth grade.” Requirements for the district would mean Dublin City Schools would provide the university with

a student roster so parents could be notified about the program, said Kathy Rowe, school counselor on special assignment. “The thing that excited me about this program is, it’s the first time I’ve seen secondary and postsecondary schools working together,” she said. The deal is in the preliminary stages of development. To accept the deal, Superintendent David Axner would have to sign a participation agreement with UT. In other district news, school board members honored Jerome High School junior Dylan Liu for his achievements on the SAT

Principal Cathy Sankey said the junior received perfect scores on both tests. “I’ve been doing this for many years, but this is the first time we’ve had anyone score 2400 on the SAT,” she said. “This is the first time in seven years (since Jerome opened) we’ve had someone score perfect on the ACT and SAT.” According to Sankey, Liu has completed high school coursework and will take postsecondary classes at the Ohio State University next year.

Summer construction, activities planned for schools By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Students started their summer vacation this week, but Dublin City Schools won’t be summerlong ghost towns. The district’s 19 schools will host summer school, enrichment, construction projects and other activities this summer. Bailey and Thomas elementary schools and Jerome High School will host summer school classes so students could earn credits and take enrichment courses. This district’s community education classes that have enrolled more than 800 students will con-

tinue. District sports, music and professional development also will continue over the summer, in addition to programs hosted at the schools by the city’s parks and recreation department. Construction will continue around the district and is expected to wrap up improvements funded by a bond issue passed in 2008. “The bond work will be done for the most part after this summer,” district business manager Annette Morud said. “There are a couple yellow board items that won’t be done. … Anything that will not be done hasn’t been done because we ran into some sort of obstacle.” The district had to forgo a path

at Chapman Elementary School after running into resistance from Columbus, and storage for Karrer Middle School must be reconfigured, Morud said. “It’s mostly small things we can complete next summer,” she said. Work funded by House Bill 264, passed in 1985 to get school buildings more energy efficient, also will go on this summer. “We started doing work for the energy bill. Lighting in most of the schools — gym lighting and some of the lighting that’s not energy efficient — we replaced, and we’re finishing that up in the next month,” Morud said. “We started working on boilers as soon as

the heating season ended, taking those out.” Scioto High School, Grizzell Middle School and Bailey and Scottish Corners elementary schools will receive new boilers. Some boilers at Coffman High School also will be replaced, Morud said. Indian Run Elementary School also will get a new, energy-efficient boiler in the summer as part of HVAC work. “Part of what we’re doing is work on the HVAC, … and that’s part of the H.B. 264 energy-conservation project. We’re replacing most of it with an energy-efficient system. The other things we’re doing (at Indian Run) with

money in the 2008 bond issue for renovations has been a three-phase project,” Morud said. The school’s bus loop was replaced two years ago; restrooms were renovated last year; and work will be done in classrooms, replacing floors and other improvements, Morud said. Final security improvements also will be done at all 19 schools as vehicle barriers are installed. “The idea (of a vehicle barrier) is that a vehicle wouldn’t run into the building. We’re doing concrete benches in front of all buildings,” Morud said. “We wanted to find something that

would prevent vehicles from going into a building, but something aesthetically nice and kids could use.” Other work going on around the district includes refurbishing the Davis Middle School roof and asphalt work at tennis courts and some parking lots. Twelve classrooms that recently were added to Thomas, Wright and Wyandot elementary schools won’t see much work, though. “They’re pretty much ready,” Morud said last week. “The only thing not completed is some landscaping and site work, but the interiors are ready.”

Historic Dublin parking enforcement tightened By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Work to improve parking conditions in Historic Dublin continues as warmer weather and events like Slainte draw more people to the district. Jeff Tyler, Dublin’s director of building standards, said fines have been imposed on those exceeding time limits in Historic Dublin parking spots for three weeks. Tyler said he wasn’t sure how many tickets have been issued thus far, but city staff members are patrolling historic district lots for violators five days a week, an increase from sporadic two-

day enforcement. “Right now we’re doing more daytime (enforcement),” he said. “That’s our focus now. We would like to move to dinner hours.” Hours limiting parking in some Historic Dublin parking spots to three hours end at 5 p.m., as noted on signs, Tyler said. Although city staff changed some signs last month to increase parking limits from two to three hours, not all timelimited spots have been identified. “Staff is waiting for delivery of sign parts that have been ordered to complete the installation,” a May 19 memo from Tyler to council stated. “We anticipate

that the final installment of time-limited signs should be in place approximately two weeks.” In addition to time-limited parking, Tyler also has been working on valet and employee parking agreements. An agreement with BriHi Square owner Bridge & High LTD would have a valet park cars in the seldom-used Indian Run parking lot when Mezzo Italian Kitchen opens. According to Tyler, the city is working with the Historic Dublin Business Association, Dublin Community Church and the Dublin branch of the Columbus Metropolitan Library to work out a parking plan for employees of the his-

toric district. “Hopefully, after the agreement is in place, it will be open to other businesses (that aren’t in the HDBA),” he said, adding that during a recent city council meeting, HDBA president Bill Jacob said the group was trying to reach out to nonmembers in Historic Dublin. Dublin City Council members have expressed concerns that employees who work in Historic Dublin use all of the convenient parking during the day, so little is available to customers who come to the area. An agreement that could help with employee parking is in its early stages, though, Tyler said.

As for $357,300 in improvements to the Indian Run parking lot approved by Dublin City council members early last month, Tyler said, they’re being engineered. Council approved improvements to the parking lot, including lights, sidewalks, crosswalks and repaving. Repaving won’t be done until next year, Tyler said, but other improvements “right now are in the design phase with the engineering department. Hopefully, once it gets out of the design phase, we’ll talk about implementation and the timeline.”

Ohio burrito chain hot for the Columbus market A Dayton burrito chain will enter the hotly contested local market with plans to build 10 stores over the next 12 months. Matt Curtis, area developer and head of construction for Hot Head Burritos, will be the chain’s first central Ohio franchisee, opening a store at 1509 Hilliard-Rome Road. The restaurant, slated to open by the end of July, will occupy 1,800 square feet of space in a new outparcel in front of Meijer. The difference between Hot Head and the rest is diversity, said Curtis, who’s been with the company since it was founded in 2007.

“Certainly, it’s competitive, but we believe our freshness, our quality of ingredients, certainly our choice of meats and toppings offer something a little bit more than some of our competitors may provide,” he said. Similar to its competitors, it offers steak, chicken and pork, but it also features a ground beef option, plus spicy chicken and steak, and 13 sauces, ranging from mild to hot. There is no alcohol. Yet it follows the quick-serve burrito model: a

limited menu, counter-order service and inexpensive prices. Burrito prices start at $5.99. Curtis said several franchisees will open additional stores in the Columbus market, but other sites have yet to be identified. Hot Head was founded by Ray and Cynde Wiley, also Subway franchisees. There are nine corporate-owned Hot Head stores in the Dayton area, with another nine franchised locations in Ohio, Kentucky and Pennsylvania. Ray Wiley said he intends to open one more corporate store and have the rest opened by franchisees. Mr. Wiley said he hopes to have 50 new locations open by the end of 2012 and double that number each year following in the foreseeable future. Godofai Tgiorgis soon will flex the flax. Tgiorgis plans to open Flaxella, a small beverage shop that will use flaxseed in some form in all of the drinks, by mid-June in downtown Columbus. Flaxella will take over the 400-square-foot stand-alone building at 89 E. Long St., where L’Appat Patisserie and Café was supposed to open but never did. Tgiorgis said there will be limited seating inside his restaurant. The beverage list will consist of three different styles: coffee, juices and smoothies, costing between $2.50 and $3.99, depending on the size. There will be some light snacks made of flaxseed, but no menu, Tgiorgis said. The original Flaxella Café & Deli opened in 2007 in Bethesda, Md. Founder Alem WoldeHawariat said flaxseed is used in a variety of products, including cereal, snack bars, trail mixes and muffins. “But used in a coffee format and in beverages

Tgiorgis, who is a franchisee, said the flaxseed product does not have a distinctive taste but is high in nutrients, particularly omega 3 fatty acids. A native of Ethiopia, he said flaxseed is a dietary staple, used in long journeys and fasting practices. He said he chose downtown because of the abundance of foot traffic and the healthy dining habits of many city workers.

Olentangy Falls hosts 2011 Parade of Homes By SUSAN WEIL Contributing writer

Preview party

The 2011 BIA Parade of Homes promises to be an event that will leave a deep impression on those who attend. This year attendees will be treated to 11 amazing homes built by central Ohio’s premier homebuilders. Olentangy Falls, site of the 2011 BIA Parade, is developed by Rockford Homes and located in southern Delaware County. Homes range in size from approximately 3,100 square feet up to 5,300 square feet, with prices from the mid-$400s to mid-$700s. Many of the homes have walk-out basements and lot sizes are larger than usual at approximately three quarters of an acre. “The BIA is very excited that the Parade of Homes is back in Delaware County after a five year absence, and Olentangy Falls is a beautiful site,” said Jim Hilz, Executive Director of the Building Industry Association. “Delaware County continues to be a

Friday, June 10: 6:00 — 10:00 p.m. Be the first to be inspired by the 2011 Parade of Homes at this premiere event featuring wonderful food and beverages. The highlight of the evening will be the annual BIA Parade Awards Ceremony. All proceeds benefit Nationwide Children’s Hospital Foundation and BIA Foundation charities. Tickets are $75 per person, including food and beverages, and are available at or by calling the BIA at (614) 891-0575. desirable and popular place to live and raise a family. We’re glad to be able to showcase it with an event like the Parade.” The view from the main road of the Parade spans for miles overlooking the Olentangy River and the expanse of the valley. Terrain throughout the development consists of rolling hills and ravines with plenty of mature trees, giving a sense of privacy and seclusion from the rest of the world. “Obviously the natural setting is a huge asset for this development,” said Bob Yoakam, Jr., President of site developer Rockford Homes. “We’ve tried to plan the

community so homes take advantage of the ravines and trees that surround each lot and the privacy it naturally affords them. We’ve kept dense wooded areas behind each lot as a natural buffer to the property line.” Inside the Parade homes attendees can expect to find the latest trends in design, decor and home organization.

The natural setting will be highlighted from inside through the positioning of large windows to the rear and sides of the homes and walkout basements with plenty of natural light. “In addition to being great on the inside, our house capitalizes on the natural beauty,” said builder Craig Tuckerman of the Tuckerman Home Group, builder of the 2011 Parade Foundation House. “Our outdoor living area flows in conjunction with the deck and the ravine it overlooks adding spectacular dimension to enjoy during warm weather.” The Foundation House adds a charitable element to the Parade with proceeds from the sale being donated to the BIA Foundation, who in turn makes donations

to Nationwide Children’s Hospital and other charities. Another charitable element is the BIA/Fifth-Third Preview Party which takes place on June 10, and is a great opportunity to get a first look at the Parade homes. Tickets are $75 with proceeds going to the BIA Foundation as well. Every year tens of thousands people looking for

Jerome boys capture regional title By JARROD ULREY ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Dublin Jerome High School boys lacrosse team used the early rounds of the Division II Central Region tournament to improve an offense that didn’t operate at what the Celtics considered optimum efficiency during part of the regular season. Easy victories to open the postseason over Wellington (19-4 on May 20), Hilliard Bradley (153 on May 25) and DeSales (147 on May 28) showed that the extra focus on that area was working. The win over the Stallions sent the defending state champion Celtics into a state semifinal June 1 at Cincinnati Summit Country Day. The winner plays for the state title on Saturday, June 4, at Westerville Central against Hunting Valley University School, Rocky River or Toledo St. Francis. University School beat Gates Mills Gilmour Academy 16-6 for the Northeast Region title, while Rocky River played St. Francis on May 30 for the Northwest championship. “Our offense is starting to click,” midfielder Wes Faulkenberry said. “We weren’t scoring too many points for a while, but putting up 14 (May 28) is good. Our coaches scouted DeSales all season, and we had a four-page scouting report. We knew exactly what they were going to do.” The Celtics took a 14-2 lead with 7:54 to go before allowing five goals over the final four minutes. Jerome entered the game at

Instead, that game proved to be a negative turning point for the Jerome duo, as Boll and Geeraert rallied for a 6-4, 6-2 victory. “When you win a close game like that, you usually have more energy and confidence, but it was different this time,” Stein said. “We were playing amazing up to that point and then our game dipped a little bit and they started playing better than us. I’m not sure why it worked out that way, but that was the turning point in the match.” It was a disappointing end to the season for Seitz and Stein, who went 2-2 and placed fourth at state a year ago. “I wouldn’t have Sean and Kent do anything different from a strategic standpoint,” coach Aaron Bauer said. “I don’t think

we made them feel as much pressure as we could have or put as many balls on court as we could have, and I was very impressed with the way Centerville was able to return Sean and Kent’s serves and put them in tough spots for us to make first volleys.”

Seitz and Stein opened with a 6-4, 6-1 win over North Canton Hoover’s Justin Carpenter and Nick Fockler. “North Canton Hoover was a good team and we came out tight to start the match,” Bauer said. See TENNIS, page C2

Continued from page C1 “But once Sean and Kent relaxed, they played well and they were definitely the better team.” The Irish enjoyed a successful season in which they went 14-1 overall in dual matches and 7-0 in OCC-Cardinal Division matches. After competing in the OCCCardinal tournament on May 7 and 10 at Olentangy, the Celtics won their second consecutive league title with 77 points ahead of Olentangy Liberty (6-1, 51), Westerville Central (4-3, 39), Scioto (5-2, 38), Westerville South (2-5, 19), Marysville (16, 16), Westerville North (3-4, 16) and Olentangy (0-7, 12). Olentangy’s tournament manager originally announced that Central was fourth with 37 points, but after a scoring error was found, Central was awarded two more points and moved into third place. In the OCC-Cardinal tournament, Stein (first singles), Seitz (second singles), senior Alex Hessler and junior Jared Judson (first doubles), and junior Sunny Feng and senior Cameron Sheley (second doubles) each went 3-0 to place first. In the sectional May 12 and 14 at Davidson, Seitz and Stein went 4-0 to place first in doubles and junior Frank Kuo went 4-1 and placed second in singles. In the district May 20-21 at Davidson, Seitz and Stein went 4-0 to place first and Kuo went 1-1. “This was the best season we’ve had,” Bauer said. “We had our best dual-match record, we won every court in the OCC and Sean and Kent were our first district champions. Our seniors were the winningest class to go through Jerome, and Sean’s the winningest player we’ve ever had. But we’ve got Kent, Frank and Jared coming back, and the experience they’ve had the past few years will help us next year.” •After going 0-1 in the state tournament the previous two seasons, Coffman junior Hiro-

mi Nakayama opened the Division I state tournament with a 6-3, 6-1 victory over Cleveland St. Ignatius’ James Oliver. “It was huge for Hiromi to win one at state,” coach Brett Hundertpfund said. “Oliver had a huge serve, but Hiromi returned it nicely. Hiromi hit a heavy ball and didn’t miss. He moved Oliver around from side to side and kept a lot of pressure on him.” Nakayama then lost to Liberty Township Lakota East’s Zach Mueck 6-2, 6-1 in the second round. Mueck went on to finish second for the second consecutive year. “Hiromi was able to bang with a nationally ranked player and win a couple games off him to end his season on a positive note,” Hundertpfund said. “Zach’s forehand is huge, and he can end a rally with one shot.” Coffman finished 10-6 overall in dual matches and 5-2 in OCC-Central matches. After competing in the OCCCentral tournament on May 7 and 11, the Shamrocks finished third with 59 points behind Upper Arlington (7-0, 82) and Thomas Worthington (6-1, 60) and ahead of Davidson (4-3, 41), Worthington Kilbourne (3-4, 40), Hilliard Darby (2-5, 27), Westland (1-6, 10) and Central Crossing (0-7, 1).

Coffman’s boys team scored 28 points to finish eighth. Grant Onken, Michael Smithhisler. Kevin O’Leary and Robbie Daulton finished third in the 3,200 relay (7:53.47) behind Westerville North (7:52.05) and St. Charles (7:52.22). “I ran my (personal-record time) and Robbie got his seasonbest time,” Onken said. The Shamrocks’ 3,200 relay is seeded third for state. “I think we can still drop more time, especially our second and third legs, so we can contend for a state title,” Onken said. “I think we’re capable of breaking 7:50 at state if all four of us run well.” Onken finished second in the 1,600 (4:18.5) behind Lancaster’s Brannon Kidder (4:16.8) to qualify for state in an individual race for the first time. At state, Onken is seeded fourth in the 1,600. “I knew I could run as fast as I did here, but it was still a pretty good race,” Onken said. “For state, I just want to make the podium (by finishing in the top eight).” Tyler Brown finished second in the discus (152 feet, 5 inches) and is seeded 14th for state. “Tyler had a great throw into the wind,” coach Jim Ferguson said. “He has a chance to improve his distance, but he’ll have his work cut out for him to reach the podium.” Jerome’s boys didn’t score in the Division I regional. •Coffman’s girls team scored 66 points to finish second in the Division I regional behind champion Reynoldsburg (88). “I think that’s the most points our team has ever scored at regional,” coach Greg King said. “A lot of times 66 points is enough to win regional, but Reynoldsburg has an exceptional team.” Clarissa Bons, Rachel Bosworth, Julia Fries and Rachel Weber won the 3,200 relay (9:20.54) ahead of New Albany (9:23.77) and are seeded fifth for state. “Our goal is to just make the podium,” Bons said. “But if we run a perfect race we could finish in the top three because a couple of the teams ahead of us are only a couple of seconds ahead of us.” Isolde Hannan won the high jump (5-3) in her first season competing in track and field for Coffman. She is seeded 13th for state. “Isolde did a good job to win regional,” said Ferguson, who coaches Coffman’s boys and girls high jumpers. “The state meet will be loaded with good high jumpers, but Isolde is used to the pressure of competing at state since she played in a state final in girls volleyball the past two years, so I think she will handle it well.” Weber finished third in the 800 (2:16.79) and is seeded 12th for state. Last year, she finished ninth in the 800 (team-record 2:15.74) at state. “Making state last year was a great experience, and it’s something I definitely wanted to do again,” Weber said. “I got my (personal record) at state last year and it would be awesome to do that again.” McKenzie Bailey, Fries, Kaylee Taylor and Weber finished third in the 1,600 relay (3:57.21) and are seeded 14th for state. Taylor was in fifth place when she received the baton, but she moved up to third by the time she handed the baton to Weber, the anchor runner. “Our handoffs were a bit rocky, so it was very nerve-wracking,” Taylor said. “But we ran with a lot of heart and got our (personal record) Rachel did a good job of holding our lead. We’re going to run our hearts out at state to try to get our (personal record) again.” Scioto’s girls team scored 41 points to finish fourth in the Division I regional. Camaria Cannon, Rachel Christian, Charissa Newkirk and Maddison Scurlock placed second in the 400 relay (48.56) behind Reynoldsburg (47.54). Christian, Cannon, Aysia Pre-

Christian Beith scored a career-high five goals against the Stallions, while Leo Horine had four goals and one assist. “I felt like we controlled the game,” coach A.J. Auld said. “We had a lot of respect for them and our defense stepped up big time.” “We’re excited to go to our second state tournament,” Beith said. “That’s big for the program.” •After hanging with Upper Arlington during a regular-season defeat, the Coffman boys were hoping for a better finish than the 15-6 loss against the Golden Bears in a Division I Central Region semifinal. The Shamrocks trailed 9-4 when play was postponed because of bad weather on May 25 and resumed the next day. They lost to UA 11-6 on April 13. The Shamrocks finished 12-9 overall. It marks the sixth consecutive season that they’ve earned between nine and 12 victories. “There’s a lot we need to think about from a program perspective,” coach Mark Forsythe said. “We left a lot of wins on the board and there’s some team stuff we need to do better. It goes to how hard we practice to making sure we have leadership on the field. That’s the stuff that will turn our program from being a good program into a great program.” The Shamrocks finished sixth at 1-5 in the OCC-Buckeye Division behind Jerome (6-0), UA (5-1), Worthington Kilbourne (4-

2), Hilliard Davidson (3-3) and Thomas Worthington (2-4) and ahead of Scioto (0-6). Coffman beat Scioto 18-8 on May 2 but lost 11-6 to Jerome on May 14 in the championship of the Emerald Cup series. In the postseason, the Shamrocks opened with an 18-3 win over Westerville North before losing to UA. The Shamrocks will lose a sixmember senior class led by Ryan Borcherding, who scored 85 goals and will play for Air Force. Borcherding was named firstteam all-OCC, first-team all-region and an All-American. Making second-team all-OCC were senior Jerrod Bierbowe, junior Kenny Kristan and sophomore Patrick Ruz, while juniors Alex Chin and Mitch Richert were honorable mention. Ruz also was first-team all-region, Bierbower and Kristan made the second team and Chin and junior Scott Fannin were honorable mention. “(Losing Borcherding is) a big hole, but we think we have some players who can step up and fill the void by sharing the ball offensively,” Forsythe said. “We’ve got a good group and a boatload of freshmen coming in.” •The Coffman girls team will lose three seniors in Devan Krider, Lauren Stephens and Megan Sweet after going 8-9 overall.

Premier 2-1 (OT) U-16 — O.P. Eagles def. Blast F.C. 1-0

and A.J. Tresoline earned the shutout in goal. The Blast won a Regional Cup and finished fifth in the national tournament two years ago. “Our U-17 team winning this tournament was a big shock because we lost a lot of players over the past few years and this is the

weakest team on paper that we’ve had in three years,” Dawson said. “We beat the No. 1 seed (CUP Crew Juniors 3-2) in the semifinals and then beat the No. 2 seed in the finals. Sam Darling had two goals in the semifinal and scored against the Blast. But the key thing was our defense was phenomenal and turned in a gritty effort.” The Blast F.C. U-12 boys team beat Team Ohio F.C. 3-2 in a State Cup final on May 22 to win its second State Cup title in three years. In its four State Cup games, the Blast outscored its opponents 13-2. “This is a good group of kids who love to play together and have a lot of heart and passion for the game,” Blast F.C. director and coach Lesh Shkreli said. “They shocked everyone, including me, by playing with the energy that they played with. We had a 3-0 lead in the final until there was about eight minutes left, and then our kids got a little too excited and we let up a bit. But overall I’m very happy with the way we played.” Two area clubs captured their first State Cup titles, as the GNA F.C. Revolution U-10 squad defeated Warren County United 8-

7 on May 22 and the Classics Eagles U-13 team beat Crew Juniors 1-0 on penalty kicks on May 22. The Ohio Premier Eagles 2 U11 boys team beat Ohio Premier Eagles 1 7-4 in overtime in a State Cup final on May 22. The Ohio Premier Eagles club has won three boys State Cup championships in the past two years. “We had two really good boys teams at the U-11 age level and they played a great game in the final, which was a win-win situation for our club,” Ohio Premier Eagles director and coach Chris King said. Shkreli, who has guided at least one Blast team to a State Cup championship for seven consecutive years, said the dominant run for central Ohio’s boys teams could end at any time, but he’s enjoying it while it lasts. “There’s a lot of talent and good coaching in Columbus, but honestly, the teams from around the state beat each other in league play all year,” Shkreli said. “It just goes in cycles. Columbus teams did really well in the State Cup this year, but the teams from Cincinnati and Dayton could win more State Cups next year. It’s youth soccer and kids are kids.”

•Two central Ohio girls teams won State Cup titles. The Ohio Premier Eagles U13 squad beat Hammer F.C. Premier 2-1 in overtime in a final on May 22 and the Ohio Premier Eagles U-16 squad defeated the Blast F.C. 1-0 in a final on May 15. “The tide of which area wins the most State Cups has gone back and forth on the girls side,” King said. “There’s a lot of parity these days, so the days of seeing one area of the state dominating for several years are over. We had one of our girls teams reach the semifinals in every age group, but the margin for error is very small and you need to not only be good, but you also need to be a little lucky to win at this level.” The Ohio Premier Eagles U13 team won its second consecutive State Cup on Kristin McFarland’s goal in overtime. The Ohio Premier Eagles U16 team won its fourth State Cup title as Lindsey Agnew scored the winning goal against the Blast off an assist by Kaitlin Miller. Last year, the Eagles lost to the Blast 1-0 on penalty kicks in a final.
