DeGraw to seek third term as mayor By ALAN FROMAN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Grandview Heights Mayor Ray DeGraw will be seeking election to a third term in November. “I had the chance to sit down with my family and discuss this decision,” DeGraw said. “You really need the support of your family and those around you to do a job like this. “I have a good staff in place and I’d

like to continue to keep them in place,” he said. “They all know our fiscal situation and, excepting our police chief who’s new, they have the experience” in their curRay DeGraw rent positions. The other factor in his decision to seek re-election is “we have a number of things in place that I’d like to see get

a little farther down the road” before he leaves office, DeGraw said. The Grandview Yard project, for instance, “I’d thought would be a little farther down the road at this point,” he said. “It’s a good project, but the economy has slowed it down a bit. You work hard to get something like that in place and you want to see it happen.” The city continues to be “in interesting economic times” with pending cuts in state and federal funding for munic-

ipalities, DeGraw said. “We’re going to continue to have some challenging economic times, but we have a plan in place” that he would like to continue to shepherd, he said. Although he considered opting out of running again, “I still love this community. I’ve been part of it for a long time and I still have a desire to serve,” DeGraw said. “I still have a lot of energy and, knock on wood, my health is good. I really don’t know what I’d do if

I retired.” DeGraw has served the city in one capacity or another almost continuously since 1984, when he was named to the board of zoning appeals. He served on city council from 1986 to 1994, including the last two years as council president. After a hiatus, he served on planning commission before being elected again See DEGRAW, page A2

Dawn Sayre has been named the new principal at Grandview Heights High School. Her previous position was as assistant principal at Hilliard Bradley High School.

GHHS principal is eager to get started By ALAN FROMAN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The school year may have just ended, but the new one can’t start soon enough for Dawn Sayre, Grandview Heights High School’s new principal. “I’m probably the only person who’s ready for the next school year to start,” she said. “I’m really excited about coming to Grandview.” The Grandview Heights Board of Education May 20 approved a two-year contract with Sayre, who currently serves as an assistant principal at Hilliard Bradley High School. Although her official first day in Grand-

view is Aug. 1, Sayre said she has already visited the school seven or eight times and plans to spend much of July at the high school preparing for the new school year. She met the GHHS staff on Friday, June 3. Getting input from staff will be important as she works to set goals for next year, Sayre said. “It’s a collaborative process,” she said. “Even though I’m the principal, I believe it takes a lot of people to make a successful school — the secretaries, the students, teachers and staff.” As principal, she will be “student-centered,” Sayre said. Helping students to excel is what makes education such a rewarding

career, she said. At the high school level, “you get to see the students walk across that stage and get their diplomas. It’s the culmination of all their years of hard work,” Sayre said. She has already seen the high level of achievement Grandview students reach, attending last month’s spring cabaret and senior scholarship night. “Grandview has a reputation for academic excellence and for being such a great community,” Sayre said. “It’s why I wanted to come here.” Sayre has spent her entire career in Hilliard, serving as a grade 7-12 health and See SAYRE, page A7

Upper Arlington-based National Church Residences (NCR) broke ground June 1 on the Commons at Third, a facility that will provide 100 studio apartments for formerly homeless and disabled low-income single adults. The Commons is being built at 1280 Norton Ave., between Third and Fifth avenues and within walking distance of Goodwill C o l u m bu s , which will partner with NCR to provide supportive services for residents. Sixty of the units will be designated for formerly homeless individuals and the remaining 40 units will be set aside for low-income individuals. The project is being funded through private and public resources, including banks, local, state and federal housing loan programs; the city of Columbus; Franklin County; the United Way of Central Ohio; Community Shelter Board; private equity investors and foundations. About $9.4 million is expected to be invested in the project. Estimated annual operating costs will be about $565,000. Construction is expected to be completed by next summer and the building should be fully occupied by the fall of 2012. Residents will sign leases and

pay rent. NCR staff will provide residents with assistance in employment, education, housing, health care, clinical needs and access to community resources. Goodwill will provide workforce development services on-site and at its nearby headquarters on Edgehill Road. The Commons at Third will the fifth supportive housing facility NCR has built in the Columbus area, said Floyd Jones, chairman of NCR’s board of directors, one of several speakers at the groundbreaking ceremony. NCR is the largest nonprofit provider of supportive housing communities in the nation, he said. The city of Columbus and central Ohio are role models for how to get such projects done the right way, Jones said. “We all know that housing and employment are the cornerstones needed to rebuild lives,” said Margie Pizzuti, president and CEO of Goodwill Columbus. The Commons at Third will help address a serious need for supportive housing in northwest Columbus, she said. “We know that no one size fits all,” Pizzuti said. The solution is to work with each individual resident to make sure he or she has the support and See COMMONS, page A7

Runyon said she strives through classroom projects and activities to bring history alive to her students “and to make it more personal than just a bunch of facts in a book. History is fun.” Three years ago, Runyon built

a full-scale prairie schooner covered wagon and placed it in her classroom, where she uses it as a unique visual aid while teaching about westward expansion and immigration.

DigFest at Grandview Yard

New event to showcase locally made beer, wine, liquors By ALAN FROMAN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Grandview Area Chamber of Commerce will present the first annual DigFest from 5 to 10 p.m. Saturday, June 18, at the Grandview Yard. The new event will give those attending the chance to sample beverages made by local microbreweries, micro-distilleries and wine producers. “We have one signature event, the Taste of Grandview event, which puts the spotlight on food vendors, in the fall,” said Michelle Wilson, the chamber’s executive director. “We wanted to do a similar type of event in the spring or summer. “In doing some research, we found that we have a surprising number of beverage-makers in the area,” she said. “For example, a

lot of communities have one distillery, but we have two. We thought a beverage event would be a perfect match with the Taste of Grandview.” Thirteen beverage vendors have signed up to participate in the Digfest, Wilson said. “We’ve been overwhelmed by the response,” she said. “We don’t have any slots left, which is amazing for a first-time event.” Participating vendors include Elevator Brewing, Barleys Brewing, Hoster’s, Watershed Distillery, Middle West Spirits, Soine Vine-

yards, Signature Wines, Camelot Cellars, Buckeye Winery, Hidden Lakes Winery, Eldchrist Winery, Wyandotte Winery and Veriano’s Tessora Limone. The event is open to the public, with admission and parking free. The Digfest will be held on the access road between the parking garage and the business that are open at the Yard, Wilson said. Tickets to taste the beverage samples will be available for $1 per ticket and will be sold in packs of 10, she said. It will take one ticket for a sample of beer and more than one ticket to sample liquors and wine, Wilson said. “If you sample a beer and really like it, you can have a full pour for additional tickets,” she said. A VIP hour will be held at 4 p.m. for a $10 admission, which

The mayor position “has been tougher than I expected,” DeGraw said. “I came into office in 2004, just after Big Bear announced they were going out of business and leaving the city. We lost 8 percent of our income and we’ve been struggling the whole way.” But with a fiscal plan in place and Grandview Yard and other projects coming into the city, “we have things in place to help us remain a strong community and a strong school district,” he said. “A lot of communities don’t have a project and plan in place that will bring in dollars long term,” DeGraw said. “We’re fortunate.”

Trash: An ever-present problem for a growing city In the wake of a recent threeday holiday weekend, I was reminded of — among other things — the remarkable cleanliness of Ohio’s capital city. Columbus is certainly not unique in the cleanliness of its streets and the remarkable efficiency of its refuse removal. But anybody who has recently been to a “filthy city” — and we will politely not mention any names — probably has thankfully returned to Columbus and assumed that the metropolis of central Ohio has always been this efficiently clean. Of course, that assumption would not be correct. For much of the first 100 years of its history, Columbus was a pretty dirty place. This should not really be all that surprising. Through most of human history, cities have been places where large numbers of people have gathered for one reason or another. And generally, they have been more interested in those reasons — to do business, to worship, to have a good time — than they have been inclined to pick up after themselves. Columbus is a created city. There was not all that much on the “high banks opposite Franklinton at the forks of the Scioto” in 1812 except a lot of forest and a very large Indian mound that gave Mound Street its name. It was at this pristine location that the Ohio General Assembly decided to make a new home. And even though only a few hundred people lived here at first, it did not take them long to make a mess. One of the very first ordinances passed by the Borough of Columbus in 1816 as the legislature was preparing to meet here for the first time dealt with the condition of the streets, such as they were. The ordinance of May 23, 1816, forbade “the obstruction of the thoroughfares by lumber, firewood, stable garbage, earth from cellars or any other means.” The mayor, Jarvis Pike, could impose fines if he saw fit. When one notes that the mayor was making money by removing the stumps from Statehouse Square for the governor in one of the state’s first public works contracts, it probably will not come as a shock to learn that the stumps in High Street were ignored. No one was paying to have them removed. And no one was really complying with the street-cleaning ordinance, either. Mayor Pike soon decided not to seek re-election and entered

into several private-sector businesses. His successors were not better, and may have been worse, at keeping the trash of the

city under control. A few examples: On June 26, 1820, the city marshal was ordered to “remove any logs from Broad Street, west of Fourth Street, that may have grown on the ground and is fallen thereon.” There is no record that the marshal did any such thing. In 1832, the residents of lots on High Street from Broad to Main streets were ordered “to collect the dirt into convenient heaps on Saturday of each week.” There is no record that the residents complied with that order, either. “Dirt” was a major problem in the early city. This was due primarily to certain basic facts: Most of the streets were not paved. Most of the streets were being used as sewers as well as thoroughfares. Columbus was a city powered by horses and its streets were filled with what horses left behind. Put all of this together and one can see why the removal of dirt was an important issue. By 1840, Columbus was a town of more than 6,000 people and the streets — at least near Broad and High — were at least moderately clean at least some of the time. An ordinance passed that year was more modest in its intent. The long-suffering marshal was ordered to employ someone to “clean the paved gutters of the city of all dirt and filth.” Presumably, the idea here was that dirt and filth pushed into the street would be washed away after a while. How this would happen in a city without sewers was not explained. Things had not improved much by 1850. A writer informed a local newspaper of the problems of inner city travel: “On Tuesday last, a couple of friends from Cleveland, delegates to the Temperance Convention, wishing to visit the Lunatic Asylum (at Jefferson and Broad), I took them in my carriage and set out on the perilous undertaking of reaching that institution; and by trespassing on the gravel sidewalk of Mr. Kelley (near Fifth and Broad), and some others, we contrived to get within 40 or 50 rods of the Asylum gate, when we were stuck fast in the mud,

and after breaking the carriage and harness in endeavoring to proceed, we were compelled to wade on foot through the mire.” The arrival of 26,000 Union troops at Camp Chase did not help improve city cleanliness much. A local paper complained in 1865 as the Civil War was ending that, “Our Street Commissioner, having wakened up from his Rip Van Winkle slumbers, was out yesterday with an overwhelming force, consisting of a one-legged man and two assistants, actively engaged in cleaning up … Heaven knows there is need of it.” By the early 1870s, Columbus was growing rapidly and the downtown near the Statehouse was being kept reasonably clean. The area north of town near the railyards was another matter: “The weather at present writing warrants a hope that navigation between the National Hotel (Nationwide and High Street) and the North Graveyard (North Market) will be closed today. For several days, it has been impossible to get a respectable footing anywhere in the territory described above. We doubt whether such a sea of mud has ever afflicted any other

city.” Actually, many other cities had precisely the same problems. If anything, Columbus — because it was the capital city — was probably cleaner than most cities of comparable size in these years. At last in 1886, a program of relatively regular street cleaning was begun in Columbus. A fourhorse sweeper began to clean High Street six nights a week. By 1892, the service was being performed by two two-horse sweepers. But even this service was not uniform, since it was paid for by local property owners who desired it. It would take another generation for really complete street cleaning and refuse removal to come to Columbus. But by 1911 — 100 years ago — it was here. Superintendent Kautzman described his refuse-collection department for a local paper: “Our present quarters (on Short Street) in addition to the disposal plant, consist of a loading station, a commodious barn, both of brick, and a wagon shed now in the process of completion. We

have 104 head of horses, 54 wagons and more than 75 men … “During the last two months, we have collected approximately 10,000 loads of garbage and rubbish. We are making the garbage pay by extracting grease and other byproducts from it … Why

should we not make this profit for the municipality?” After all, who can argue with treasure from trash? Ed Lentz writes a history column for ThisWeek.

Moment in time

As it were

Trash: An ever-present problem for a growing city In the wake of a recent threeday holiday weekend, I was reminded of — among other things — the remarkable cleanliness of Ohio’s capital city. Columbus is certainly not unique in the cleanliness of its streets and the remarkable efficiency of its refuse removal. But anybody who has recently been to a “filthy city” — and we will politely not mention any names — probably has thankfully returned to Columbus and assumed that the metropolis of central Ohio has always been this efficiently clean. Of course, that assumption would not be correct. For much of the first 100 years of its history, Columbus was a pretty dirty place. This should not really be all that surprising. Through most of human history, cities have been places where large numbers of people have gathered for one reason or another. And generally, they have been more interested in those reasons — to do business, to worship, to have a good time — than they have been inclined to pick up after themselves. Columbus is a created city. There was not all that much on the “high banks opposite Franklinton at the forks of the Scioto” in 1812 except a lot of forest and a very large Indian mound that gave Mound Street its name. It was at this pristine location that the Ohio General Assembly decided to make a new home. And even though only a few hundred people lived here at first, it did not take them long to make a mess. One of the very first ordinances passed by the Borough of Columbus in 1816 as the legislature was preparing to meet here for the first time dealt with the condition of the streets, such as they were. The ordinance of May 23, 1816, forbade “the obstruction of the thoroughfares by lumber, firewood, stable garbage, earth from cellars or any other means.” The mayor, Jarvis Pike, could impose fines if he saw fit. When one notes that the mayor was making money by removing the stumps from Statehouse Square for the governor in one of the state’s first public works contracts, it probably will not come as a shock to learn that the stumps in High Street were ignored. No one was paying to have them removed. And no one was really complying with the street-cleaning ordinance, either. Mayor Pike soon decided not to seek re-election and entered

into several private-sector businesses. His successors were not better, and may have been worse, at keeping the trash of the

city under control. A few examples: On June 26, 1820, the city marshal was ordered to “remove any logs from Broad Street, west of Fourth Street, that may have grown on the ground and is fallen thereon.” There is no record that the marshal did any such thing. In 1832, the residents of lots on High Street from Broad to Main streets were ordered “to collect the dirt into convenient heaps on Saturday of each week.” There is no record that the residents complied with that order, either. “Dirt” was a major problem in the early city. This was due primarily to certain basic facts: Most of the streets were not paved. Most of the streets were being used as sewers as well as thoroughfares. Columbus was a city powered by horses and its streets were filled with what horses left behind. Put all of this together and one can see why the removal of dirt was an important issue. By 1840, Columbus was a town of more than 6,000 people and the streets — at least near Broad and High — were at least moderately clean at least some of the time. An ordinance passed that year was more modest in its intent. The long-suffering marshal was ordered to employ someone to “clean the paved gutters of the city of all dirt and filth.” Presumably, the idea here was that dirt and filth pushed into the street would be washed away after a while. How this would happen in a city without sewers was not explained. Things had not improved much by 1850. A writer informed a local newspaper of the problems of inner city travel: “On Tuesday last, a couple of friends from Cleveland, delegates to the Temperance Convention, wishing to visit the Lunatic Asylum (at Jefferson and Broad), I took them in my carriage and set out on the perilous undertaking of reaching that institution; and by trespassing on the gravel sidewalk of Mr. Kelley (near Fifth and Broad), and some others, we contrived to get within 40 or 50 rods of the Asylum gate, when we were stuck fast in the mud,

and after breaking the carriage and harness in endeavoring to proceed, we were compelled to wade on foot through the mire.” The arrival of 26,000 Union troops at Camp Chase did not help improve city cleanliness much. A local paper complained in 1865 as the Civil War was ending that, “Our Street Commissioner, having wakened up from his Rip Van Winkle slumbers, was out yesterday with an overwhelming force, consisting of a one-legged man and two assistants, actively engaged in cleaning up … Heaven knows there is need of it.” By the early 1870s, Columbus was growing rapidly and the downtown near the Statehouse was being kept reasonably clean. The area north of town near the railyards was another matter: “The weather at present writing warrants a hope that navigation between the National Hotel (Nationwide and High Street) and the North Graveyard (North Market) will be closed today. For several days, it has been impossible to get a respectable footing anywhere in the territory described above. We doubt whether such a sea of mud has ever afflicted any other

This photograph is dated Oct. 3, 1922, and shows the Grandview High School under construction. Looking north from the rear of the high school, the photo shows buildings lining Fifth Avenue in the far distance and cars parked along Third Avenue to the left of the shed on the right. Workmen are building the foundation and a large stack of drain tile is in the foreground. The photograph is labeled “Grand View High School, L. L. Leveque Co. Contrs” and was presumably commissioned by them. The high school had 22 rooms, was designed to accommodate 600 students, and cost $290,000.

city.” Actually, many other cities had precisely the same problems. If anything, Columbus — because it was the capital city — was probably cleaner than most cities of comparable size in these years. At last in 1886, a program of relatively regular street cleaning was begun in Columbus. A fourhorse sweeper began to clean High Street six nights a week. By 1892, the service was being performed by two two-horse sweepers. But even this service was not uniform, since it was paid for by local property owners who desired it. It would take another generation for really complete street cleaning and refuse removal to come to Columbus. But by 1911 — 100 years ago — it was here. Superintendent Kautzman described his refuse-collection department for a local paper: “Our present quarters (on Short Street) in addition to the disposal plant, consist of a loading station, a commodious barn, both of brick, and a wagon shed now in the process of completion. We

have 104 head of horses, 54 wagons and more than 75 men … “During the last two months, we have collected approximately 10,000 loads of garbage and rubbish. We are making the garbage pay by extracting grease and other byproducts from it … Why

should we not make this profit for the municipality?” After all, who can argue with treasure from trash? Ed Lentz writes a history column for ThisWeek.

Aside from his catchy nickname (more on that later) and one-of-a-kind licks and riffs, doing back flips and other stage gymnastics is what Shorty’s known for. Shorty started doing the flips when he was in his teens, encouraged by one of his mentors, Guitar Slim, to add some showmanship to his performances. That was in the 1950s. He’ll still do a flip today at age 71. “I just like to have myself some fun,” he told The Beat. “But you can’t get too excited, and you have to do it in time, in rhythm. If the band is going crazy and they don’t know what’s coming, well, one time I ended up with my right arm in a sling.” Shorty tells the story of his influence on a young Jimi Hendrix (Shorty would befriend and later marry Jimi’s half-sister), of whom Shorty said, “Jimi would go AWOL from his Army base to catch my local shows. He told me the reason he started setting his guitar on fire was because he couldn’t do the back flips like I did. “I’m up there to entertain and make the fans happy,” Shorty told The Beat. Born David Kearney in Houston, Texas, and raised by his grandmother in Kissimmee, Fla., Shorty attempted to follow in his uncle’s footsteps as a guitar player. As a 6-year-old, Shorty said, he would sneak into his uncle’s room once he’d gone to work and try to play the guitar, until one day he’d just about given up. “I was kicking it and slamming the strings. I told my grandmother ‘I hate that guitar,’” he said. “My grandmother asked my uncle, ‘Will you teach that boy to play

guitar before I kill him?’” Long hours on his uncle’s knee gave way to a gig with a local band — but being a kid in a band full of adults also meant he was the shortest member of the band. A club owner laid the moniker Guitar Shorty on him then, and it stuck. His reputation was growing as well, and he caught the ear of blues master Willie Dixon and that of Ray Charles, who hired him and with whom he spent a year on the road, still in his teens. In the 1950s and ’60s, Shorty toured and recorded the occasional single. He moved to the Los Angeles area in the ’70s, and played gigs with every blues star, including B.B. King, Johnny Copeland and T-Bone Walker. But it wasn’t until the ’90s that he began a serious recording career. His new CD, Bare Knuckles,

is his seventh — third for Alligator Records. “I still enjoy what I’m doing,” he said. “I’m thankful every day for the gift to be able to do this.” Shorty admitted that most of his trademark licks are recorded live rather than rehearsed. Still, the studio is no substitute for the stage. “Stuff just comes to me while I’m playing. The same song tonight and tomorrow night is not going to sound the same,” he explained. “If you do the same thing over and over, it’s like eating the same food all the time — it gets stale. “If you can’t be creative, you’re wasting your time. That’s what music’s all about.” ■ For more from The Beat’s interview with Guitar Shorty, read the BeatBlog at www.ThisWeekNews.com/blogs.

New chef brings menu thrills to The Rossi “The thrill is goooone, baaaaby,” yowled B.B. King as I was seated at a rare available table in The Rossi Bar + Kitchen. Usually, a shopworn song like this deflates my mood. But that night (Was it the festive crowd? The stylish restaurant?), the old tune felt almost fresh. And hey, I’ve got nothing against B.B., but as the evening progressed, I realized the blues dude’s words couldn’t have been more off base. Because the thoroughly fabulous food I began slamming back at the Rossi proved the thrill is most certainly not gone here. Actually, I haven’t been more enthusiastic about this place since reviewing it the week it opened, in April 2005. My excitement grew from fantastic nightly specials and spread to just-introduced menu items rolled out by the Rossi’s bright new chef,Andrew Smith. Formerly working in that artsy hotbed of culinary daring called Portland, Ore., Smith’s stuff has been creative without tasting strange, ingredient-conscious without sounding

Not only does this rubycolored, hefty, aromatic oddball go down considerably better than it sounds, but I kinda love it. Refreshingly, it’s a bit citrusy with orange-kissed Watershed Gin flying off pomegranate molasses, both grounded by splashes of earthy beet juice. Crystals of sea salt crust the cocktail glass, realigning the palate between sips. The lovely, light and lemony-dressed arugula salad ($10) is another new favorite.

with Lucky Penny feta) it’s listed on cards posted above the restaurant “pass.” There, you might also see a (sexily seared) scallop, (bacony) crispy pork rillette and tomatillo-jam appetizer. If you do, order this immediately. Ditto for a terrifically balanced soupof-the-day gazpacho ($6). Rustic yet lush, its fresh and colorful chopped vegetables (tomato, cucumber and red onion) were aromatized by a hint of basil and enriched by drops of an excellent olive oil plus pulverized bread. This brings us to what’s become a much-talked-about dish around town — the Rossi’s incredible new Pork and Beans ($18). Criminally undersold by its mundane name, this breakout entree can easily erase bad memories of underachieving predecessors of the same name. It begins with a huge and beautiful bone-in, center-cut pork chop, expertly char-grilled like the tender and juicy steak it is. On top is a mass of mayonnaisedressed slaw sharpened by sliced green

Surrounding this are gigantic, meaty and creamy corona beans (think extra-large butter beans) that are a riotous pleasure to eat. Combined, it all made for a comfort-food masterpiece dripping with so much arousing flavor that I literally had to pound on the table and declare, “Holy slab of hog, that’s good!” In a similar, dressed-up-casual vein was a glorious Pork Confit sandwich ($9) served with terrific fries. Assembled with carnitas-like strands of intensified pulled pig meat and pickled watermelon rind scented with cinnamon, it’s like the dream of a summertime picnic awakened by a clever chef. And another reason to visit the thrilling Rossi again.

He hopes reasonable prices — no single dish tops $9 — and quick service should get people in the door. “To keep my concept working, I need the volume,” he said, noting that a full liquor license is in place. Banquet space will be used for large parties or spillover seating during restaurant hours. Patio seating also will be added. Nanak, which got its start in Bethel Center, has been long known for its quality, natural desserts. When Soltanirad and Tajik relocated to Westerville in late 2009, Nguyen opened his second Lac Viet in their Bethel Road storefront. Nanak offered a menu of savory items until recently. Soltanirad said it was too difficult to run the bakery and a separate eatery, so he brought in Nguyen. “I know him. I think his food is very good,” he said. “It’s something Westerville doesn’t have.” Nguyen established his first Lac Viet almost seven years ago in the North Market and later opened Phat Wraps, a healthy-food concept on campus. He said he has sold his interest in both restaurants so he could focus on his two other stores. In related news, Nguyen has attained a license through the Ohio Department of Agriculture that allows him to transport food from Lac Viet on Bethel to other locations, meaning he has turned that store into a commissary kitchen. He recently bought a 60-gallon stockpot and intends to sell his pho broth to other restaurants. “I’m ready for the next level,” he said. Lac Viet is open for lunch and dinner hours six days a week, closed Sunday. For more information, call 614-882-0588.

Boulevard Presbyterian starts SAYRE community garden project

Continued from page A1

By ALAN FROMAN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Boulevard Presbyterian Church has initiated a community garden project on its grounds, with six raised beds on the southeast side of the church property. “It’s the one area of the church that gets a lot of sunlight all day long,” Pastor James Sledge said. The project is being funded through a grant that the Friends of 43212, the civic component of the Fifth by Northwest Area Commission, has received from the Franklin Park Conservatory, Sledge said. “It was kind of a providential thing for us,” he said. “We have been talking about wanting to do something like this, and then (the Friends of 43212) contacted us and asked if we wanted to be part of their effort to get this grant. It’s worked out well.” The church planted the beds about two weeks ago, Sledge said. “We kind of got off to a late start (waiting for the grant to go through), so we had to hasten to get the project going in time,” he said. Boulevard also had to get approval from the Grandview Heights Planning Commission. “We had planned to build a fence around the community garden to be good neighbors, but the commission didn’t want that,” Sledge. “Other than that, they had no problem with the project.” The original plan was to place nine raised beds, but because of the slope of the church lawn, only six could be installed, he said. The revised plan is to create a mix of ornamental plants and food plants in the area near the church

building where the other beds were going to be installed, Sledge said. “Our ultimate plan is to create a shade garden behind the beds where we can put a picnic table and a bench,” he said. “It will be a place where people can just come and sit, but it will be sometime in the future before we’ll do that.” A variety of vegetables, including onions, tomatoes, beans, squash and potatoes, have been planted in the 16-foot by 4-foot beds, Sledge said. “They even planted some okra to please me, a southerner,” he said with a smile. Any vegetables that are harvested from the garden at the church, as well as the plot the church has at the Wallace Gardens, will be donated to the Near Northside Emergency Material Assistance Program and other food pantries, Sledge said. “If you go to the grocery, fruits and vegetables, healthy foods you need, are the most expensive,” he said. “So most poor people can’t get the foods they need the most. Food pantries can’t afford to purchase them. Hopefully, we can have a good harvest and get some healthy vegetables in the hands of people who need them.” Another goal of the garden project is to serve as a way to bring the community together, Sledge said. Non-church members are encouraged to participate in the project, he said. “We already have a couple of non-church members who have enthusiastically gotten involved,” Sledge said. Volunteers are needed to help with a variety of tasks, from weeding the garden to helping when

Each student created a comic book detailing the history of their family, from their immigration to America up to the present day. “I’m very fortunate to work in a district like Grandview that is open to trying different ways to teach students history,” Runyon said. “Imagine being allowed to put a covered wagon right in the middle of your classroom.” Fourth-grader Micah Clark Moody simply describes Runyon as being “awesome. “We get to do so many cool projects in her class,” she said. Runyon allows students to see both the good and bad of history and the hard times that pioneer families had to go through, Clark Moody said. “Not to talk badly about other teachers, but sometimes they just tell you about the happy side of history,” she said. By discussing the difficulties their ancestors had to face, students learn “life isn’t just a big party,” Clark Moody said. “It makes history more real and more

Her interest in history has grown during this school year, thanks to her teacher and the various class projects, Beacom said. She particularly enjoyed the genealogy unit, during which her research revealed her family is related to William Brewster, a captain on the Mayflower, and that Ashley Judd is a distant relative. “It’s amazing to find out my family goes back so far, back to the 1600s,” Beacom said. “When we visited my grandparents, it was so great to tell them stories about our family history and see their faces light up.” The history teacher of the year award is co-sponsored by Gilder Lehrman, the History Channel and Preserve America.

it’s time to pick the harvest, he said. Anyone interested in helping with the garden project can sign up for an email list via the church’s website, www.blvdchurch.org, Sledge said. While most church members seem excited about the community garden project, some are concerned that “once the novelty wears off, people won’t stay involved,” he said. “They don’t want a situation where the beds are left untended and a bunch of weeds are growing on our property.” So far, the response has been good, “although we always have room for more volunteers,” Sledge said. “We’d like to have a waiting list for our email alerts. “We’d really like this to become not just a church project, but something that becomes a community project,” he said.

Sarah Meier of Grandview Heights takes off on the second leg of the 1,600-meter relay after getting the baton from teammate Jordan Fitzgerald (back left) during the Division III state meet June 4 at Ohio State.

Bobcats fare well at state meet By SCOTT HENNEN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Sarah Meier got the secondplace finish she had been hoping for and reached the podium three times in the Division III state track and field meet at Ohio State. On June 4, the senior for the Grandview Heights High School girls team finished second in the 300-meter hurdles (45.16 seconds), third in the 100 hurdles (15.33) and was a member of the sixth-place 1,600 relay (4:04.63) with teammates Jordan Fitzgerald, Caitlyn Sarich and Emily Lachey. The top eight in each event reach the podium. In the 300 hurdles, Meier was runner-up to Steubenville Catholic Central’s Teddi Jo Maslowski, a Duke recruit who also won the 100 hurdles and holds the state record in both events. “I have gotten third three times here (at state), so it’s good to be up there another step,” said Meier, who was third in the 300 hurdles as a sophomore and junior and in the 100 hurdles this year. “Teddi is better than good, so I couldn’t have expected more. I have wanted to be up here (in second) for the past two years.” Meier was disappointed with her finish in the 100 hurdles, but that gave her more incentive in the second hurdles event. “I’m really happy with second. I knew I had to go out in front because Teddi always goes out in front,” Meier said. “I tried to stay with her as long as I could. I didn’t know I had that much in me.” Coach Brian Schoch said Meier had a performance to remember. See LARSON, page B2 “Sarah kept pushing and

pushing (in the 300 hurdles), but she was going up against the best 300 hurdler in state history and (Maslowski) has the times to prove it,” Schoch said. “But Sarah finished second (in the 300 hurdles), third (in the 100 hurdles) and was on a (1,600 relay) that finished sixth, so that’s not a bad day to have. A lot of runners would love to have that kind of performance.” The Bobcats tied Fort Lo-

ramie and Gates Mills Gilmour for eighth (21 points) in the girls meet behind champion Steubenville Catholic Central (41) as 71 teams scored. The 1,600 relay trimmed nearly three seconds off its regional time of 4:07.06. Schoch jumbled the lineup to get the best from his runners, moving Fitzgerald to leadoff, Sarich to the third leg and Lachey to anchor. “We put Jordan in the lead

and kept Sarah in the second spot to get as much of a lead as we could,” Schoch said. “We had a 4:04 in the finals and a 4:07 last week (at regional), so to drop three seconds in a week is amazing. “Jordan started off great and then Sarah had her usual good run. Caitlyn and Emily then ran hard and allowed us to finish sixth for the second time in as many years.”

Last season, the 1,600 relay of Fitzgerald, Meier, 2010 graduate Paige Lachey and Emily Lachey was sixth at state in 4:06.61. Hannah Stefanoff, a Georgia State recruit, finished fifth in the 3,200 (11:29.68). “Hannah has had a fantastic career,” Schoch said. “She just wasn’t happy with her last race See BOBCATS, page B2

Morris, Frye win titles in state track meet By JARROD ULREY ThisWeek Community Newspapers

A pair of Ready High School track and field competitors concluded memorable prep careers on June 4 where they always had dreamed of being — on the podium at Ohio State. Senior Emily Morris, who was making her fourth trip to the Division II state girls meet, took second in the shot put as a sophomore and third last year before throwing 42 feet, 7 1/4 inches to capture this year’s title. Classmate Nick Frye followed an 11th-place finish in the 110meter hurdles in last year’s Division III boys meet by winning the title, finishing in 14.97 seconds to edge runner-up Miles Dunlap of McDonald (14.99). Also placing for the boys team was sophomore Taron Slone, who took fourth (11.27) in the 100 after finishing 16th a year ago. The top eight in each event reached the podium. Morris won the regional title May 28 by throwing 42-3 1/2 after being in third place heading into her final throw. Her best throw at state came on her first toss, and she followed with two other efforts longer than 42 feet. St. Marys Memorial senior Mekayla Breland won state last year (44-11) but settled for second (42-1/4) this season. Morris plans to attend the University of Notre Dame and compete in track and field. Her 10 points gave Ready a tie for 23rd at state behind champion Hartley (47). “I was a lot more nervous going in, so I’m glad I (threw my best) earlier than I did (at regional),” Morris said. “I’ve been here for four years, so I was ready to do this. A lot of my family was here and all of them had T-shirts on (that said ‘Emily’s Entourage’). My grandma, who is my biggest fan, was able to be here. “I knew I had to do it early so that I could go into the finals ... with a good throw. I knew the girl from St. Marys Memorial was capable because she’s thrown 44 feet this year.” Frye transferred from Central Crossing to Ready after SouthWestern City Schools canceled sports in fall 2009 because of a levy failure. He remained at Ready even after sports in his former district were reinstated. Entering this year’s state meet with the best regional time, Frye ran 14.82 for the best time in the preliminaries June 3 before winning the title the next day.

and that was a matter of bad timing. She missed pretty much a whole week of training (just before district) because of a virus and it’s tough to make that up this time of year.” •The boys track team had a fifth-place finish from senior Joe Trapp in the 200 (22.87). “It felt like I had a good start, but I didn’t have my best time,” Trapp said. “I think it was pretty windy. It wasn’t a lot of wind, but enough to have an effect on the time because it was in your face. “I never really got nervous even though it’s the last time I will probably ever run for a team since I plan to go to (Ohio University). But it ended well, I guess. Fifth is good, but when you say fifth in the state, that sounds even better.” Schoch and Trapp both said that the fifth-place finish seemed like an unattainable goal at the beginning of the season. “Joe and I would have been laughing if you told us at the beginning of the season that he would finish fifth in the state,” Schoch said. “I don’t think either of us would have thought that it was possible. But he had another great race and he has improved so much on his times over the years.” The boys tied for 48th (4)

Davis to succeed DiSabato as Bobcats wrestling coach Chad Davis has been named coach of the Grandview Heights High School wrestling team. He was an assistant last season for coach Andy DiSabato, who retired in March after 25 years leading the program. Davis, a 2006 graduate of Grandview, was a Division III state champion at 215 pounds as a senior. “I want to pass on what I learned from the program, and

that was a strong work ethic and goal-setting,” Davis said. “Those are key things that kids need to learn these days. You can take goal-setting from wrestling and use that the rest of your life. The lessons you learn in wrestling will stay with you the rest of your life.” Davis is a sixth-grade teacher at Grandview. He also played football at Capital. — By Scott Hennen

Emily Morris of Ready won the shot put with a throw of 42 feet, 7 1/4 inches in the Division II state meet on June 4.

Frye ran 14.72 to win regional May 27. His performance at state helped Ready place 11th (17) behind champion McDonald (44). “It’s very exciting,” said Frye, who plans to attend Ohio State but isn’t sure if he’ll compete in track. “I got out well and didn’t see anybody until the eighth hurdle. I’ve been looking to get a state title since my freshman year. I’ve been working a lot more in the weight room and got in better shape since last year.” Slone had the second-best preliminary time (11.05) but settled for fourth in the 100 final. “I’m kind of upset about it, but I made it to the finals,” Slone said. “I’m a sophomore, so I’m not really supposed to be here yet. It’s a little upsetting, but I’m not complaining. I’ve still got two more years. “My preliminaries time would have won the race. People have been talking to me all week and making me nervous. I wanted to win, but at the same time I’m proud.” Frye and Slone ran on the 800 relay with senior Demetrius Clark and junior Halston Jones that finished seventh (1:30.58). The relay had the fourth-best preliminary time. The same foursome finished 14th (44.98) in the 400 relay,

while Clark finished 16th (11.58) in the 100. “It’s a lot bigger and louder than what it’s been the past few weeks,” Jones said. The girls team finished third (94) in the CCL meet May 14 at Columbus School for Girls behind Hartley (141) and the host Unicorns (114) and ahead of DeSales (76) and Watterson (65). The boys were last (73) behind St. Charles (124), DeSales (116), Hartley (90) and Watterson (83). At district May 21, the girls were sixth (40) in Division II at Hamilton Township behind champion Hartley (111) and the boys were fifth (57) in Division III at Gahanna behind champion Columbus Academy (83.5). The girls then tied for 21st (10) at regional in Dayton behind champion Hartley (82). The boys finished second (45) at regional at Fairfield Union behind Academy (71). In addition to Morris, the girls team will lose sprinter Clare Bochy to graduation. Clark and Frye were joined as seniors on the boys team by Kyle Bergman, Robert Reed and David Schlanser. “It feels good to be (at state),” said Clark, who will play football for Ashland University. “I like this team.”

Skating event appeals to top pros, local kids By GARY BUDZAK ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Skate for Hope is a chance for figure skating champions and future skating stars to help raise funds to battle breast cancer. “I am a breast cancer survivor and a lifelong skater,” said Carolyn Bongirno, Skate for Hope founder, who lives in Powell. “I realized that children and families are as impacted as the patient, and yet they have to sit on the sidelines and watch. I wanted to do something that would empower children to better cope if this hit anyone they knew or loved.” Skate for Hope began with just four known skaters who drove in from Cleveland and Detroit. Things have changed since then: Agents are now calling Bongirno to have their skaters participate in Skate for Hope. Fourteen past and present figure skating stars are scheduled to be at Nationwide Arena for the eighth Skate for Hope at 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 18. “John Coughlin, our new United States national champion, he just tweeted a few days ago that they were all out in Colorado Springs working on a number together to bring to the show, that would be completely unique to our show,” Bongirno said. “He Tweeted I just spent time with my Skate for Hope friends looking forward to my favorite show of the year.” The athletes don’t get paid, and they miss Father’s Day to perform, Bongirno said. “Sarah Hughes, our guest

Financial finesse

Wedding planning on a budget Your wedding day may be one you have dreamed about your entire life. In those dreams, it’s likely that no expense was spared in making the event memorable for you and your guests. When it comes time to actually plan your wedding, however, you’ll likely be operating on a much tighter budget than you had in those dreams. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to make the event spectacular without spending a small fortune. In addition to the following tips, research will yield many books and online resources devoted to this topic.  Schedule your wedding out of season. There’s no right or wrong time to plan your wedding, but there are dates that are more popular, and thus more expensive. Avoiding the early summer and early fall months makes it easier to negotiate lower prices with vendors. Additionally, Fridays and Sundays tend to be less expensive than Saturdays.  Choose a nontraditional venue for your ceremony or reception. Holding your event in a backyard, park, on public grounds or in another location that doesn’t specialize in hosting weddings is both unique and can be a big cost-saver. Remember, however, to take into consideration the cost of tables, chairs and other rentals.  Don’t spend a lot on invitations. Couples may think the invitation sets the tone for the wed-

ding, but the reality is, guests rarely remember the invite after opening the envelope. Consider cutting MICHELLE costs by choosing less JOHNSON expensive invitations or even making your own. For the response card, opt for a postcard or even an electronic reply on one of the popular wedding websites to save even more.  Get your friends and family involved. There are likely some very talented people in your circle of friends. Tap them to be part of your special day. You can save hundreds or even thousands of dollars by asking your friends to fill important roles such as photographer, DJ and florist.  Find something borrowed. Friends and family may have centerpieces, apparel or other items from their wedding that they would be honored to loan you for yours. Ask around.  Purchase in season. When choosing flowers, look for varieties that will be in season on your wedding day. You’ll save a bundle and likely have more beautiful arrangements. The same principle works with menu planning. Look for local and in-season foods when deciding what you’ll serve at the re-

ception.  Negotiate. Don’t hesitate to ask for a discount from your vendors and suppliers. In a tough economy, they may be willing to offer you great rates to get your business. And there’s no harm in asking.  Rent what you can’t afford to buy. Although most brides opt to purchase and store their wedding dress after the big day, few ever wear or do anything with the gown again. By renting, you can wear a designer dress for a fraction of the cost of purchasing.  Reduce the size of your guest list and wedding party. Scrutinize your guest list and consider limiting the number of your attendants. Scaling back can help you save on the cost of invitations, favors, meals and more.  Make wedding purchases with a rewards card. Rather than writing a check, consider using a credit card that rewards you with frequent-flier miles, hotel points or even cash back. Depending on how much you spend, the rewards could help defray the cost of your honeymoon travel. For additional financial assistance, contact Michelle Johnson, financial center manager with Fifth Third Bank. She welcomes the opportunity to take your comments and questions.

The Book Loft looks to attract Compressed natural gas wordsmiths with poetry club Ground broken on station By GARY SEMAN JR. ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Roger Tompkins wants to give central Ohioans a place to foster interest in poetry. The co-owner of The Book Loft in German Village is helping to form a poetry club for people of all interest and skill levels. “I think every poet wants to do better and people who haven’t published anything want to be discovered and be known to somebody besides themselves,” he said. “And maybe the way to do it is through the people who have the same desire.” Tompkins said he and many of his customers were vexed by the lack of poetry clubs in Columbus. “We’re just trying to find out now who all is interested,” he

said. The public is invited to attend the next meeting on the subject, slated for 3 p.m. Saturday, June 18, at the bookstore, 631 S. Third St. Tompkins said he hopes to have the club functional by this fall. Tompkins said he wants to keep things informal. Writers would share and discuss their works with their contemporaries and have their poetry critiqued by their peers. “We decided to make this thing a fun thing,” he said. “We’re kind of opening the door to make this possible. We’re not going to charge. The membership is going to be open and free.” Tompkins also has a personal interest: He’s a poet, too. “I just wanted to do it because I like books, I like reading and I like poetry,” he said.

Steve Abbott, a professor of English at Columbus State Community College and a poetrybook editor, said he is supportive of the Book Loft’s goal of establishing a poetry club. “There are very few, so clearly there’s a need for it,” he said. Abbott, who is part of a formal poetry workshop at the local Pudding House Publications, said there is benefit to a club that offers serious appraisals of work, not just affirmation. Likewise, emerging poets must be able to accept criticism if they want to improve, he said. “That’s the problem: You sometimes get a self-help approach to poetry,” said Abbot, who edited the 2008 “Cap City Poets,” an anthology compiling the work of 74 central Ohio poets, and two chat books. gseman@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekNews.com

Mayor Michael B. Coleman was joined last week by Councilmember Priscilla R. Tyson, representatives of Clintonville-based Clean Fuels Ohio and Columbia Gas of Ohio to break ground on the city’s first compressed natural gas station. It will be, according to the mayor’s spokesman, “the largest fast-fill station of its kind in Ohio and likely in the Midwest.” It is being built at 4211 Groves Road on the South Side and is expected to be open this fall. “This is more than just a fueling station,” Coleman said in a statement. “This marks a moment in history as we transition to a diversified and cleaner fuel for our fleet and our community.” Columbus expects to eliminate about 40,000 gallons of diesel fuel a year, saving approximately $60,000 to $90,000 in fuel costs, the announcement stated. CNG is averaging $1.50 per gas gallon equivalent compared

with more than $4 a gallon of diesel. In addition, CNG reduces carbon emissions by as much as 90 percent. The initial infusion of 24 CNG vehicles for the city will reduce emissions as much as if 96 cars were taken off the road annually. “Columbus is committed to being a regional and national leader in the clean fuel movement,” Tyson, chairwoman of the finance committee, was quoted as saying. The project was supported through a grant Clean Fuels Ohio received from the U.S. Department of Energy in 2009. The total cost of the CNG station is $4.2 million, with $1.1 million coming from the Department of Energy. “While the station is for use by the city of Columbus fleet, it will also be open to area fleets and the general public,” the announcement stated.

“We’re excited for the station to open later this fall,” Clean Fuels Ohio executive director Sam Spofforth said in the statement. “With the rise in diesel and gasoline prices we have seen an increased interest from fleets to convert to CNG. This station will offer businesses, governments and individual motorists in our area another option and help the city save thousands of dollars each year.” This green fleet initiative is part of the Ohio Advanced Transportation Partnership that includes 27 partners across the state led by Clean Fuels Ohio. In total, Clean Fuels Ohio received $11 million in grant funding from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Clean Cities Program for its partners. Clean Fuels Ohio is a statewide nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the use of cleaner domestic fuels and efficient vehicles to the transportation industry, government, and the general public.
