Restaurant requests town center loan By LISA AURAND ThisWeek Community Newspapers A new restaurant is seeking funds through the town center loan program created by Grove City last year. The Town Center Loan Review Committee met Wednesday, May 25, to review a loan request from Tossed-NGrilled, 3985 Broadway. The committee recommended the restaurant be approved for a $110,000,

10-year loan, clerk of city council Tami Kelly said. Tossed-N-Grilled is only the second company to receive a positive recommendation from the committee since the loan program began. Quicksquare Consulting was the first. City council voted in November 2010 to award the company a $150,000, 20year loan at the same 3-percent interest rate the committee has recommended for Tossed-N-Grilled.

The Community Capital Development Corp. is being paid up to $45,000 a year to administer the $1-million loan program, which was established to promote town center economic development. The loan process usually starts with a referral from the city development department. Applicants provide the same documentation and information a bank would require before granting a loan. That includes tax returns, a business plan and a credit analysis.

Program guidelines require applicants to have a commercial banking relationship and adequate collateral. Tossed-N-Grilled has a security loan on the primary residence of owners Abdallah Bahij and Natalie Dennison, Kelly said. “They’re putting up their home as collateral,” she said. Documents submitted to the loan review committee reveal the restaurant plans to serve lunch and dinner.

“It’s going to be a nice little restaurant,” Kelly said. A sample menu included salads, sandwiches, gyros, hamburgers, soups, frozen yogurt and beer. A liquor license for the business is pending, Kelly said. The restaurant also plans to offer board games, wireless Internet and a largescreen television to encourage family dining.

Park Street students keep Summer Sizzle floral tradition blooming Concerts begin June 3 By LISA AURAND ThisWeek Community Newspapers

It’s one of the signs of spring in Grove City. Fifth-graders from Grove City’s Park Street Intermediate School spent Wednesday, May 25, learning about citizenship while planting flowers in the town center. As she’s done every year for the last decade, teacher Debbie Delozier and her teaching partner, Mindy Sowers, brought about 60 children to beautify the town center. “Part of our curriculum talks to the kids and introduces them to the idea of good citizenship and what it takes to be a good

citizen,” Delozier said. “In fifth grade, they’re not quite so self-centered and they can grow beyond themselves,” she said of her students. “That’s a nice tie-in with their social studies curriculum on citizenship.” The field trip started when state Rep. Cheryl Grossman was Grove City’s mayor, and Delozier, who is a friend of Grossman’s, asked if her class could help the city. “She hooked me up with (environmental specialist) Linda Rosine,” Delozier said. “(Rosine) brings the flowers and brings down the trash bags and the gloves.” The students walk to City Hall

from their school and plant flowers in 16 large pots throughout the town center, Rosine said. A plaque in the town center next to the Graeter’s Ice Cream honors Delozier’s students for their work over the years. “The flowers are based on the flowers .... in the hanging baskets (along city streets) in the summer,” Rosine said. After the planting is finished, she said, “The kids break up into teams with their chaperones and their teachers, and they go throughout the town center doing a cleanup.” This year, the students collected more than 100 See FLOWERS, page A2

Music will fill Grove City’s town center when the Summer Sizzle Concert Series begins Friday, June 3. The annual concert series, sponsored by the Grove City Parks and Recreation Department and Grove City Tomorrow, features a wide variety of styles from ’70s to zydeco. “It’s one of those things to provide free entertainment for the community, to bring the community together and to showcase the businesses located downtown,” said recreation superintendent Ed Merritt. The concerts are held from 7 to 8:30 p.m Fridays and Saturdays at the Town Center Plaza, on the corner of Park Street and Broadway.

City council to review town center park proposal Continued from page A1 estimates to clean up the lumberyard. Gregory Grinch and Melissa Albright voted against that resolution. They said the city recently issued a request for proposals for the town center, a move designed to attract private developers. Grinch suggested money spent on the lumberyard might be wasted if a developer chooses to build

there. Proposals for redeveloping the town center are due at 3 p.m. June 16. On May 27, Bennett pointed out problems with the lumberyard property, including the small parking area on the property’s northern edge. “(The parking lot) is a gravel base, which is against city code. Nobody else can do that,” Bennett said.

Bennett said the city needs to take measures now to improve the space, which has been sitting vacant for more than a decade. “No one is buying it. We’ve spent more than $2 million on marketing and advertising it and we’re still at square one,” Bennett said. “It’s time to do what we should have done 10 or 12 years ago. ... We’ve got to start somewhere.”

Some benches are available for seating and patrons can bring their own lawn chairs. The Saturday events, known as Saturdays in the Grove, feature artwork by local artists. Artists and performers are still being sought. Those interested in sharing their work or their talents should download an application from Artists encouraged to apply include those working with glass, jewelry, paint, ceramics, sculpture, metal, wood and fiber. Stiltwalkers, magicians, caricature artists and face-painters also are welcome.

town center plan. The parking and street improvements, together with the lumberyard renovations, would cost the city about $2.5 million. In April, Mike Keller, an engineer with EMH&T, presented a plan for the site, including screening trees along the railroad tracks, fencing along Grove City Road, a few tables and park benches and water service.


CONCERTS Continued from page A1

If the site is revamped into a temporary park, “we’ve got an enhanced property that might be sold, or, if people come down there and use it, maybe it will stay a park.” EMH&T engineering consultants also have drafted plans to pave the gravel lot and improve Park Street and Grove City Road with head-in parking, as recommended in the most recent

“If you’re a music lover, come downtown,” Merritt said. “It’s a great way to bring the family together and enjoy good weather.” The concerts will be canceled in the case of inclement weather.

Delozier’s class partners with a special needs class at Park Street throughout the year and includes them in the annual field trip. “We try to include them as much as possible,” Delozier said. “Our kids just do a great job of helping them. They tie trash bags onto their wheelchairs and make them as much a part of the group as possible.” If the class has time, they’ll take a tour of the town center,

and they almost always make a stop at Graeter’s Ice Cream. “They really do like it,” Rosine said of the field trip. It’s a way for (Delozier) to let the kids know what it’s like to give back to the community.” After the classes return to Park Street, they write thank-you notes to Rosine, urban forester Jodee Lowe and their chaperones. “A couple of students commented in their thank-you notes that it felt good to something for someone else,” Delozier said.

Port Columbus International Airport

Construction jets money into economy By JEFF DONAHUE

ThisWeek Community Newspapers runway, maximizes the use of

Statistics released May 25 by the Columbus Regional Airport Authority show the city’s three airport facilities have become major contributors to the local economy. Elaine Roberts, airport authority president and CEO, said Port Columbus International Airport, Rickenbacker Airport and Bolton Field facilities are responsible for more than $2.7 billion a year in economic activity. The airport authority has a construction budget of more than $117 million this year for improvement and expansion projects, with more than $490 million in capital expenditures occurring since 2005. These projects are funded by federal airport improvement grants, federal American Recovery & Reinvestment Act funding, airport revenue bonds, user fees and airport authority funds. “In addition to the significant, ongoing economic impact created by the airports, several major, multi-year construction projects are fueling even greater economic growth in the region,” Roberts said. The first major project is the replacement of the south runway at Port Columbus. The replacement runway, which will be 702

airport property by providing enough separation from the north runway for simultaneous arrivals and departures, Roberts said. The new location also sets the stage for a second passenger terminal, which will be built in the center of the airport property, as dictated by increased passenger activity. The existing south runway, which includes original 1928 pavement in some areas, has been extended and repaved over the years and with this new project will be converted to a taxiway. The airport authority’s board of directors has approved more than $45 million in runway-replacement project funds. The majority of those funds will go to Shelly & Sands Inc. for paving and electrical work, as well as the installation of aircraft navigational aids, Roberts said. The entire four-year project, which includes modifications to the airport golf course, is estimated about $143 million. Earth and utility work is under way, with the runway expected to open June 2013. The board also approved more than $4.2 million in funds for the final phase of pavement rehabilitation and lighting replacement for a runway at Rickenbacker, the cargo-dedicated airport on the south side of Columbus, Roberts said.

tion, the project will have spanned three years and resulted in an investment of about $15.3 million. Another major construction project currently under way at Port Columbus is the new in-line baggage-screening system that is expected to enhance safety and customer service, Roberts said. Terminal-lobby congestion will be alleviated when the screening

equipment is moved behind the scenes, enabling passengers to again leave their luggage at the airline ticket counters, he said. This $34 million project started in 2010 and is expected to be functional by Thanksgiving, with some work continuing into 2012. “We recognize that our business and community partners rely on the successful operation and development of Port Columbus, Rickenbacker and Bolton Field airports,” Roberts said. “We take great pride in providing safe, enjoyable airport environments on a daily basis while also planning for the long-term growth of these critical aviation assets. We are fortunate to be able to accomplish this while also creating a significant impact to the local economy.”

It would bring people down here in the evening, and they had good cash flow,” she said.

Fixed Rate Consolidation Loan


Central Ohio’s prospects for job growth are promising Pharmaceutical companies are often are judged by their “pipeline” of future products.

The Columbus2020! initiative also tracks its “pipeline” of potential projects –, or rather those competitive projects initiatives that could add jobs and investment in the Columbus Regionregion. . A close analysis likely would likely warrant a “buy” recommendation if the Columbus Region region was were selling shares of stock.

One thing is clear – t: The level of activity is up versus 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 region shows that 58 percent of the projects KENNY are small- to MCDONALD medium medium-sized operations in the advanced- manufacturing sector, ; 28 percent are international companies considering the United States, and there are a cadre framework of for headquarters and back-office projects that havehas the potential to create hundreds of jobs. . Projects are being sourced from nearly every corner of the U.S.nation, and each international mission is creating qualified projects. The Region’s region’s technology incubators and entrepreneurial centers are nearing capacity in Columbus, Dublin and New Albany, driven by market opportunities in the advancedenergy, advanced- materials, information- technology and medical/-healthcare sectors. . It is a testament to the efforts of the State of Ohiostate and local leaders that

such operations exist to nurture these new enterprises that represent the future of the Regioncentral Ohio. As another indicator, in 2010 funding for local startups in Central Ohio 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 73- percent increase over 2009. . You can see tTechColumbus has the entire report compiled by TechColumbus atonline at The Columbus area has to compete to win these projects, and the companies have to execute on their plans in order for our potential to be realized, but the market potential is there. .

As it were

Wind, weather created past havoc This has been one of those years when we have seen a lot of rain in the early spring. It certainly has not been the first time this has happened and it certainly will not be the last. ED At the rate we are going, LENTZ the rainfall may even set a record. A lot of people have left Ohio in recent years for any number of reasons. Many people, attracted by the possibilities of new work in a new place, have left Ohio and the “Rustbelt” for the “Sunbelt” states of the southern United States. And in those Sunbelt states, many people have found what they sought: new jobs in a new place. It is a place that is dry and clear and clean and where people do not have to worry about snow and sleet and hail. But then, on the other hand, they might have to worry about having any water at all. If I had to choose, I would take the snow. And so, too, apparently, did a lot of our forebears. It is interesting to note that when our country was being settled, people flooded into America from Great Britain to all parts of the Atlantic Coast from Georgia to Maine. For a number of reasons, the north was settled faster than the south and the first great cities of America were places like Boston, New York and Philadelphia. It is also important to observe that when Americans began moving, they did not move south. They moved west into the territory north and west of the Ohio River. It was this Ohio Country, this Northwest Territory, which became the place most Americans wanted to be. It is not hard to see why. The land in New England and the Middle Colonies was hard and thin and brittle to the plow. The topsoil in Ohio was six, 10 and even

12 inches deep and easy to the plow. The summers were warm — but not too warm. The winters were cold — but not too cold. It seemed like a good place to be. And it was. It is. Most of the time. Those few times when it isn’t take some getting used to. My friends from Florida sometimes visit me. These veterans of more than one hurricane have asked me often how I can live in the shadow of the tornadoes that sweep across the state. My friends from Oregon — who saw a volcano explode in their neighborhood — ask me how we survive the great blizzards of occasional Ohio winters. My answer to them is always the same: If a hurricane or a volcano cannot be frightening to you,

why should a swift and simple wind — with or without a little snow — be fearful to me? If you grow up in Tornado Alley, you do not fear the wind. The rain is another matter. The rain, with enough time and enough force, brings the great floods that have swept through the state from time to time. From the time it was settled, the town at the forks of the Scioto and Olentangy rivers saw more than 11 major floods between 1798 and 1913. They always came in the spring, between February and April, and put most of the lowlands around Columbus under five to 15 feet of water. The worst one came in March 1913.

AS IT WERE Continued from page A4 in central Ohio was still frozen when a spring storm dumped five inches of rain on the empty land. The flood that followed put the West Side of Columbus under more than a dozen feet of water and killed 94 people. After the flood, the Army Corps of Engineers came to town and put measures in place to prevent a flood like that from ever happening again. The result was a whole new set of bridges across the Scioto and the widening of the Scioto to twice its previous width as it passed through the downtown. From these beginnings came the riverfront, a whole new entrance to the city from the west along U.S. Route 40 (the National Road), a road whose bicentennial is being celebrated this year. The Corps of Engineers was successful. A flood like the one in 1913 has never happened again. A flood in 1959 that put much of the Near West Side under water

happened for different reasons. And those conditions have been corrected as well. So we like to think the worst problems have been solved. And so they have. But then, there is always the rain. Living in central Ohio, I suppose we need to understand that a lot of wind and water will still be our lot. This is nothing new. In August 1831, Isaac Appleton Jewett wrote home to Boston from Columbus, then a town of

less than 2,000 people: “Torrents of rain have been pouring down upon us the entire summer. Deucalion’s age would have been a dry time to this. The heavens are hung with black for weeks. Indeed, I may say with truth, we have not had a clear day this summer.” Some things change in central Ohio. Some things do not. Ed Lentz writes a history column for ThisWeek.

REGIONAL CHAMPIONS Grove City state bound for 1st time since 1983 By FRANK DiRENNA ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Grove City High School baseball coach Ryan Alexander could see this coming. The Greyhounds earned the program’s first state tournament berth since 1983 with a 10-3 win over Westerville Central in a Division I regional final on May 28 at Dublin Coffman. Grove City plays Liberty Township Lakota East in a state semifinal at 1 p.m. Thursday, June 2, at Huntington Park. The winner advances to play Willoughby South or Perrysburg for the title at 10 a.m. Saturday, June 4, at Huntington Park. “The last three years I knew we had guys capable of this,” said Alexander, whose team is 22-10 overall. “I played in the (1997) regionals when I was a sophomore in high school (at Bellaire St. John). It was the best time of my life. After that I knew I wanted to teach and coach because there wasn’t anything better than getting there. These guys have surpassed that, so I can only imagine what level they’re on right now.” Grove City hit four home runs against Central, including a grand slam by Mitchell Stephens in the top of the seventh inning for an 8-3 lead. “I just wanted to hit the ball hard,”

Grove City coach Ryan Alexander gets water dumped on him by Jordan Halley after the Greyhounds beat Westerville Central 10-3 in a Division I regional final May 28 at Dublin Coffman. Grove City plays Liberty Township Lakota East in a state semifinal at 1 p.m. Thursday, June 2, at Huntington Park.

Stephens said. “It just went over (the fence). This is great to go back to states. There’s still more to go. We just have to keep hitting and get strong pitching and defense. We can do it.” Ken Reichle and T.J. DeVore hit back-

to-back home runs in the seventh and Caleb Woodson hit a two-run homer in the first. Woodson, who is hitting .422, leads the team with six homers. “It’s like I set the tone,” Woodson said of his home run against Central.

Season ends for Comets, Greyhounds at regional By KURTIS ADAMS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Central Crossing’s Jacquelyn Fowler (left), Ciera Williams and Michaela Dorsey get a hug from assistant coach Lee Pyles after the Comets’ 4-3 loss to Gahanna in a Division I regional final May 28 at Ohio State.


Central Crossing falls short in regional final By PAUL BATTERSON ThisWeek Community Newspapers

An hour after their season ended, Lindsay Carmean, Skye Dorsey, Dakota Pyles, Allissa Turkovich and Kendra Willis received a reminder of what they accomplished this season with the Central Crossing High School softball team. Following a 4-3 loss to Gahanna in a Division I regional final on May 28 at Ohio State, the Comets seniors received a

standing ovation from their classmates at the school’s commencement ceremony in Veterans Memorial. The softball team became the first at Central Crossing to win a league or district title since the school opened in fall 2002. “Getting a standing ovation at graduation was the coolest thing that has happened to me in my whole high school career,” said Carmean, whose team finished 25-3 overall and was ranked third in the final Division I state

poll. “It was really amazing that Corey Meyer, our valedictorian, mentioned us in his speech and how we made our school proud. I felt like we had our whole school behind us.” Graduation capped off an emotional few days for the Comets, who beat Teays Valley 3-2 on May 26 in a regional semifinal before losing to the Lions. Central Crossing looked like See SOFTBALL, page B3

The Central Crossing High School girls track and field team could have had a larger contingent in the Division I regional meet. The Comets only advanced their 400-meter relay, which finished 15th in 52.36 seconds May 25 at Pickerington North and did not qualify for the finals. They nearly made it out of the district 4 meet a week earlier at Hamilton Township in several other events, however. Senior Sarah Hunter placed fifth while setting a program record in the 300 hurdles (47.65), classmate Tia Smith was sixth in the 3,200 (11:59.56) and the 800 relay also finished sixth (1:48). The top four in each event advanced to regional. “We drew into a tough district,” said coach Glenn Blue, whose team placed 10th with 16 points at district as Hilliard Davidson (110) captured the team title. “They all are, of course, but being in another district would have given us more chances. “Our (800 relay), for example, would have gotten out at some of the other sites (district 2 and district 3).

Grove City players and coaches celebrate near the mound after recording the final out of the victory over Westerville Central.

BASEBALL Continued from page B1 Stephens was the winning pitcher in a 5-3 victory over West Chester Lakota West in a regional semifinal May 27 at Coffman. He relieved Artrip in the third inning and didn’t allow a hit over the final 4 1/3 innings. Stephens is 10-4 with a 4.66 ERA, 36 strikeouts and 15 walks, while Artrip is 5-1 with a 1.89 ERA, 29 strikeouts and 14 walks. “This is the first (Grove City) team that’s been (to the state tournament) in a while,” Artrip said. “We’d like to go all the way.” Against Central, Grove City trailed 3-2 in the fifth inning when Drew Nankivell’s fielder’s choice grounder and Reichle’s infield single delivered the tying and goahead runs. Reichle leads the team with 28 RBI and Nankivell, who began the season on junior varsity, is hitting .482. Lakota East (22-7) earned the program’s first regional title with a 7-0 win over Vandalia Butler on May 28. The Thunderhawks earned a spot in a regional final with a 1-0 win in 12 innings over Clayton Northmont on May 27. Lakota East pitchers have not allowed a run in 34 innings. Senior Evan Hills, who has committed to the University of Cincinnati, and junior Mike Conrad lead the staff. “Everything we have heard on them is how solid of a team they are coming from the Cincinnati area,” Alexander said. “They play against top competition and have survived that district. ...

Grove City Christian School’s Jaymie Barns dedicated his offseason to preparing for a berth in the Division III state boys track and field meet. That work helped give Barns the opportunity to represent his school in the 400 meters on Friday, June 3, at Ohio State. The top eight finishers in the preliminaries advance to the finals on Saturday, June 4. Barns, a senior, earned the state berth by winning the 400 in a personal-best 50.03 seconds in the regional meet May 27 at Fairfield Union. “I felt good out of the blocks, which were held by my older brother, Jessie,” Barns said. “I knew I had to stay with Kyle (Connery of Reedsville Eastern) if I was going to make it. Once in the final stretch, I felt someone to my side and that kept me going. I gave it all I had in my heart.” Connery was second in 50.51. Jessie Barns was a standout in football at Grove City Christian and graduated in 2010. Jaymie Barns enters the state meet ranked fourth in the event. “Jaymie has surprised me with how well he has been doing, but he really put the work in during the offseason and during the season, and his hard work has really paid off,” coach Brad Seaburn said. “This will be his first trip to the state meet and we feel he has a great chance to do well. We will find out on Friday how well he does, but I am sure we will be coming back on Saturday to run against the top seven 400 runners in the state.” Grove City Christian finished 18th (14 points) behind firstplace Columbus Academy (71) as 46 teams scored. Barns also accounted for his team’s other four points as he qualified for the finals in the 100 before finishing fifth (11.25). The top four finishers in each event advanced to state. Junior Zack Casparro finished 15th in the discus (108 feet, 7 inches). •The softball team won its first MOCAL title since 2008 by finishing 9-0 in the league. The Eagles finished 16-7 overall, losing to Danville 10-4 in the second round of the Division IV

Below is the state qualifier for the Grove City Christian track & field teams with regional event, place and time/distance/height: BOYS — Jaymie Barns: 400 (first, 50.03) GIRLS — None Other regional results: BOYS — Barns: 100 (fifth, 11.25); Zack Casparro: discus (15th, 1087)

Other players expected to return next season are sophomores Kirsten Folzenlogen and Katelyn Justice and freshmen Nichelina Frank and Katelyn Lauer. •After beginning the season 1-5, the baseball team bounced back to finish 11-9 overall and 6-3 in the MOCAL. The Eagles, who won the previous three MOCAL titles, finished third behind Tree of Life (8-2) and Fairfield Christian (72), who shared the championship because Fairfield Christian played one fewer game because of bad weather, and ahead of Madison Christian (3-6), Gahanna Christian (2-5) and Delaware Christian (1-9). After beating Wellington 182 in five innings in the first round of the Division IV district tournament May 9, Grove City Christian lost to second-seeded Shekinah Christian 3-0 on May 11. The Eagles will lose seniors Jacob Gloyd, Sam Hatfield and Andrew Paquin. Gloyd, who batted .339, was first-team all-MOCAL and alldistrict. On the mound, Gloyd was 6-3 with a 1.18 ERA, 72 strikeouts and 23 walks. Freshman shortstop Michael Howard, who led the team in hitting (.431), was first-team allMOCAL and second-team alldistrict. Junior Casey Fisher, who batted .323 with five home runs and 28 RBI, was second-team allMOCAL and honorable mention all-district. Hatfield and junior Josh Zeller were honorable mention allMOCAL. Also expected back next season are sophomores Mack Brunney and Ronnie Gallion and freshmen Tanner Buhrts, Tyler Elgin, Matt Fritz and Casey Stauffer. Gallion missed the season because of a right elbow injury. “It took us awhile to jell and for the freshmen to get some experience, so we ended up 10-4 the last 14 games,” coach Steve Bowshier said. “The weather canceled six to seven winnable games that we had against Division IV opponents, so our record was a little deceiving as how we played towards the end of the season.”

district tournament May 12. Grove City Christian defeated Fairfield Christian 9-5 in the first round May 10. In the MOCAL, the Eagles finished ahead of Madison Christian (7-3), Tree of Life (5-4), Delaware Christian (3-7), Fairfield Christian (2-7) and Gahanna Christian (1-6). “Winning the title outright and going undefeated in the league was definitely a goal of ours,” coach Lisa Horsley said. “The girls worked hard to get to that. They earned it.” Horsley said a sweep of defending champion Tree of Life was a key to her team’s title. The Eagles defeated Tree of Life 6-3 on April 21 and 8-0 on April 26. The Eagles will lose six players to graduation, including catcher Brooke Warner, who was named MOCAL Player of the Year for the second consecutive season after hitting .385 with a team-high 34 RBI. Warner was first-team all-district. Senior shortstop Lindsey Eickel was first-team allMOCAL and second-team alldistrict after hitting a team-best .569 with 28 RBI. Senior Megan Keating was second-team all-MOCAL, and seniors Caitlyn Kennedy and Chelsea Peters were honorable mention all-MOCAL. The other senior was Ally Tiller, who missed the season after breaking her finger during a preseason scrimmage. Junior pitcher Megan Creasap was 13-6 with a 2.44 ERA, 117 strikeouts and 29 walks. She was first-team all-MOCAL and second-team all-district. Junior Sara Stiffler batted .383.

Ready Roundup

Knights to take shots at state track titles By JARROD ULREY ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Ready High School boys and girls track and field teams completed regional competition last weekend with a combined five championships and realistic hopes that they could add to that total in the state meet. Emily Morris will compete for the title in Division II girls shot put at 9 a.m. Saturday, June 4, at Ohio State. Nick Frye, Taron Slone and Demetrius Clark all advanced to state in individual events and the boys 400-meter and 800 relays also moved on in Division III, which holds its running preliminaries at 10 a.m. Friday, June 3, and finals at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, June 4. “It’s pretty surprising what (the boys) are doing,” Slone said. “We were looking good at the CCL meet (May 12 and 14) and each week we’ve improved.” Morris earned her final chance at a state title in the shot put by winning

the Division II regional championship May 28 in Dayton Welcome Stadium with a throw of 42 feet, 3 1/2 inches. She had the second-best throw among all four regionals behind Washington Court House’s Jessica Guyett, who won the regional at Byesville Meadowbrook with an effort of 42-6. Last season, Morris took third at state with a throw of 40-3 1/2. She was second (40-11) as a sophomore. Her performance helped the girls team score 10 points and tie BloomCarroll, Buckeye Valley and Cincinnati Taft for 21st behind champion Hartley (82) as 49 teams scored. Morris was in third place heading into the finals of the shot put. “I won, which I’m really excited about actually,” Morris said. “I missed my graduation (May 28) for this and I knew if I didn’t throw it far enough (during the finals) that I was only going to get third place. So I got a little bit extra distance on it.”

Below are the state qualifiers for the Ready track & field teams with regional event, place and time/distance/height: BOYS — Demetrius Clark: 100 (fourth, 11.24); Nick Frye: 110 hurdles (first, 14.72); Taron Slone: 100 (first, 10.73); 400 relay: Clark,

Frye and Slone also enter state among the title favorites in their individual events. After finishing 11th at state in the 110 hurdles (15.63 seconds) last season, Frye has taken a big step forward this spring. His winning time of 14.72 on May 27 at Fairfield Union was the best time among competitors at the four Division III regionals. Slone’s first-place time of 10.73 in the 100 also was the state’s best at the

hard to get better. Last year (at state) I’d never been in front of that many people for a track meet before, so I was nervous. I don’t think I’ll be so nervous this time.” Clark took fourth in the 100 (11.24) at regional to advance individually. Clark, Frye and Slone were joined by Halston Jones on the 400 relay (43.96) and 800 relay (1:31.2), both of which took first at regional. The boys team placed second (45) of 46 teams that scored at regional, which was won by Columbus Academy (71). “I’m absolutely excited for the relays,” Frye said. “I’ve never been on a relay that got to state before.” “At the beginning of the season, we weren’t looking too good (in the relays), but we’ve put it together,” Slone said.

regional level. He finished 16th in the 100 (11.58) at state last year. “I usually go out to race the clock,” Frye said. “If I stumble or get out to a bad start, there are people that can beat me. I’ve been getting out better this year by making sure my lead leg gets over the hurdle. This year I’ve worked on strengthening my right leg more.” “There’s a big target on my back,” Slone said. “I know everybody is work- ing hard to go faster, so it pushes me

The Comets’ Jacquelyn Fowler (3) gets a hug from Dakota Pyles after scoring the winning run as teammates Kendra Willis (left) and Skye Dorsey join the celebration after the 3-2 win over Teays Valley in the regional semifinal May 26.

SOFTBALL Continued from page B1 it was going to pull off another two-out rally with runners on second and third in the seventh inning against Gahanna, but Lions senior pitcher Brandis Fishel struck out junior Paige Rhodes to end the game. “We never gave up. Even in that last inning, we thought we were going to do it,” junior pitcher Savannah Dorsey said. “We thought we were going all the way the whole time.” “I was confident we could do it,” coach Rona Dorsey said. “The right batters were up at the plate, but it just didn’t go our way.” The Comets had reason to be confident considering the way they won the regional semifinal. With two outs in the bottom of the seventh, Teays Valley catcher Erica Prantl dropped a third strike and committed an error while trying to throw out Turkovich at first base. Freshman Jacquelyn Fowler took off from second on the passed ball and beat a throw home to give Central Crossing the victory. The Comets also won the district championship with a 2-1 victory over Dresden Tri-Valley on May 21, as Turkovich hit a solo home run with two outs in the fifth.

OCC. “This is a great group of kids. They’ve set the bar for future teams,” coach Dorsey said. “They set out at the beginning of the season to do that.” She also believes her team has enough returning players to make another run next season. Expected to return are Savannah Dorsey, who was firstteam all-OCC, all-district and all-state as well as the OCCCentral and Central District Player of the Year, and Rhodes, who was second-team all-district while playing first base. Also expected back are Fowler, juniors Sara Baker, Jourdan Hager and Ciera Williams and freshmen Abby Rhodes, Hunter Taylor and Alison Amos in the outfield, sophomores Kayla Bausch and Paige Kirk as pitchers, sophomore Kristen Merz at second base and freshman Michaela Dorsey as a designated player. “We didn’t want to see the season end this way, but we’ve had a season full of memories,” said coach Dorsey, the league and district Coach of the Year. “They’ve made this season remarkable.”

Central Crossing won the OCC-Central Division at 13-0, finishing ahead of Thomas Worthington (10-3), Worthington Kilbourne (10-4), Hilliard Davidson (7-7), Hilliard Darby (5-8), Upper Arlington (4-10), Dublin Coffman (3-11) and Westland (2-11). League games between the Comets and Thomas and Darby and Westland were canceled. Part of the team’s success was because of its five seniors. Pyles was first-team all-OCC and all-district and second-team all-state as an outfielder, while Turkovich was first-team allOCC and all-district and honorable mention all-state as a shortstop. Carmean was second-team all-OCC. Skye Dorsey was special mention all-OCC and Willis was honorable mention all-

man (164.5), Davidson (131), Upper Arlington (100), Hilliard Darby (88), Thomas Worthington (84.5) and Worthington Kilbourne (55) and ahead of Westland (10). The boys team also had a number of near misses in the district 3 meet at Hilliard Bradley. Junior Kyle Dyer was sixth in the 800 (2:02.66) after placing first in the preliminaries, and classmate Will Doering was fifth in the 3,200 (10:11.01) as the Comets placed eighth (19) behind champion Coffman (116.5). Dyer and Doering ran on the all-junior regional-qualifying 3,200 relay along with Donovan Wonacott and Stanley Gates. It clocked 8:15.07 to finish 12th. Wonacott, the team’s only other qualifier for the regional, made the finals in the 1,600 and placed eighth (4:27.12) as the top four advanced to state. Freshmen Parker Hall, Matt Brenneman and Jovan Mitnaul are expected to return on the 400 and 800 relays, both of which were anchored by senior Seth Wieging. The boys team placed sixth (20) in the OCC-Central meet behind Davidson (170.5), Coffman (158.5), Thomas (129.5), Darby (96.5) and Upper Arlington (49) and ahead of Kilbourne (19) and Westland (13). •Grove City’s season was highlighted by the boys team’s victory in the Best of the Southwest Invitational on April 15.

as the girls team placed third (62) behind Franklin Heights (98) and the host Comets (72), who had swept both titles the previous eight years. The Greyhounds advanced junior Harve Crabtree to the boys regional meet, where he finished 15th in the 110 hurdles (17.0) and 14th in the 300 hurdles (44.04) but did not qualify for the finals. He placed fourth in both events in the district 3 meet as the Greyhounds were 10th (16). Junior Jake Kursinskis placed ninth in the 800 (2:05.25) after he ran third in the preliminaries while the all-junior 400 relay of Ryan Barberi, Jordan Fisher, Drey Thompson and Nick Roach finished sixth (44.23). “We were pretty young this year, so we’ll have a lot coming back,” said coach Jane Taylor, whose seniors include Valparaiso-recruit Nick Kowaleski. “Our junior class, especially, is very strong.

Rivage Atlantique off to commendable start My anonymous eating cover was almost blown when I was fingered by a friend in a new seafood-centric restaurant. See, my pal lives close to that establishment, and like most locals in the busy eatery that evening, she could barely contain her gushing enthusiasm for her new, walkable, upscale-casual dining option. Fortunately, I was able to shush her with shrimp and grits before she caused a scene. Rivage Atlantique — a fussily Frenched-up way of saying “Atlantic Coast� — is the restaurant in question. Taking over the former Caffe Daniela spot in Worthington, it’s the well-performing result of a veteran East Coast chef and the owners of the Grandview Cafe. The space has undergone a makeover, mostly by eradicating the cafeteria-like setup in the wood-burning-oven-equipped front room (Rivage makes good pizzas). And though the place is still “show up in shorts if you want� casual, overall it’s

MENU by G.A. Benton fairly appealing. Earth tones prevail as you move from the louder first room to the duskily lit and more intimate interior dining areas, where flames flicker on the hearth. Still, even there, sound levels can soar on busy nights as noise bounces off a tile floor. Lastly, there’s an accommodating back room with its own menu (though you can order from both menus, if you ask) and a completely different vibe. Actually called the Back Room, it’s basically a modern, upscale sports pub. Once you’re seated, Rivage demonstrates it wants to be taken seriously with its bread service. Specifically, a warm and OK loaf was considerably enlivened by a tripartite dish bearing a nice tapenade (chopped black olives, capers and

ically, this house-named appetizer proved uncharacteristic for Rivage, which in subsequent orders (including excellent selections from its “raw bar�) generally treated impressively fresh-tasting proteins with simplicity.

These lovelies are available either as a starter (two scallops, $13) or an entree ($25), in which you get four massive scallops plus two sides such as buttery baby veggies and irresistibly cheesy potatoes. The Low Country Shrimp and Grits ($18) were just that: five plump and sweet shrimp atop a bounteous bowl of creamy and stiff white grits. The only flourishes were a couple of discs of smoky andouille sausage (I would’ve liked more) plus drizzles of melted butter with garlic. With an opening game plan that suggests “don’t mess with freshness,� Rivage looks to be off to a commendable start. I can see why the neighborhood is gushing.

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, counterorder 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 loCourtesy of Hot Head Burritos cations in Ohio, KenAn example of the interior of Hot Head Burritos stores. tucky 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 standalone building at 89 E. Long St., where L’Appat Patisserie and CafĂŠ was supposed to open but never did. Tgiorgis said there will be limited seating inside his restaurant.
