Council looks at infrastructure, aesthetics By ANDREW MILLER

ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The focus was on improving infrastructure and aesthetics when CanalWinchester City Council and its finance committee were presented the new draft of the five-year capital improvement plan by public works director Matt Peoples on Aug. 1.

Council’s finance and service committees will review the CIP prior to a vote at the Aug. 15 city council meeting. The draft includes all major capital improvement plans through 2016. Peoples said the approval of the CIP is necessary for a pending application to the Ohio Public Works Commission to complete improvements to the tank- town waterline, which will include street re-

pairs. A current application for a grant for the work, through the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency, apparently is not on the road to approval, according to finance director Nanisa Osborn. The Ohio Public Works Commission applications are due Sept. 6. A public hearing about the application will be held at 6:30 p.m., Monday, Aug. 15, prior to

the next city council meeting. Also at Monday’s meeting, local insurance broker Mike Coolman spoke in favor of the efforts of resident Joe Hannah to repaint the Indiana and Ohio Railroad Bridge over Waterloo Street, using volunteers. Obtaining liability coverage for the project, however, has been mostly unsuccessful, he said. “I’ve submitted requests for insurance

quotes to several companies. So far I’ve had five refusals and one company that’s still looking at it,but it’s been four and a half weeks and we don’t have a quote back yet,” Coolman said. “According to (Hannah’s) personal policies, as long as he is painting it himself and doesn’t receive any wage, he will See CITY COUNCIL, page A2

‘Destination’ brings new perspective to organization By ANDREW MILLER

ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Canal Winchester’s growth from village to city has prompted a broader mission for the Main Street Canal Winchester organization, and along with that mission comes a new name — Destination:Canal Winchester. The name change w as announced earlier this month during a public meeting of the Old Town Historic Committee. The organization is still completing the formal paperwork with the Secretary of State and IRS, according to board president Bob Garvin. “We’re in the process of formalizing the name change, and we still have some work to do, like changing our mission statement,” Garvin said. “Basically, the thing is that we want to not be constrained. Right now Main Street (Canal Winchester) is just here to support the downtown, but there

Slate Run Farm 30th anniversary By ANDREW MILLER ThisWeek Community Newspapers Thirty years is only a drop in the bucket for the Slate Run Living Historical Farm, which was originally founded as a family farm more than 200 years ago. The farm, now owned and managed by the Franklin County Metro Parks, celebrated its 30th anniversary of educating the public the weekend of July 29-30. “We’re really happy to pass another mark in time,” program manager Ann Culek said. “This farm was originally given as a land grant in 1810,so 30 years is just a small slice of time for this piece of land. The Metro Parks bought the land around 1976 and opened it as a living history farm in 1981.” The purpose of the Metro Parks-run farm is to educate people about Ohio’s agrarian roots and to reconnect visitors with an understanding of the food system. Crops are still grown and harvested, livestock is raised and all of the buildings are maintained as they were in the 1880s, according to Culek. Visitors are invited to participate in farm chores and take part in period activities, such as arts and crafts projects, that were a part of daily life on an 1880s-era Ohio farm. “Twenty-five years ago, there were no housing developments between here and Columbus, but now that’s not the case,so we get fewer and fewer people with a background in agriculture,” Culek said. “It’s nice to get people to touch a co w or see

peas growing. We offer a chance to get people outside — and a quiet place for families. There’s no electricity and no video games here.” Franklin County Metro Parks spokeswoman Peg Hanley agreed.

“It’s a short drive from Columbus, but a long way back in time,” Hanley said. “Once you w alk through the gate and take that lane back from the parking lot you just sort of slow down and you disconnect from your technology. I’ll see people on cell phones and other devices in our other parks, but I don’t see much of that at the farm.” Hanley and Culek both said that the farm offers families a chance to reconnect with each other. “I see people come with their families and they sit on the back porch of the old farmhouse talking about when they grew up on a farm, or their grandparent’s farm, and it allows the families a chance to share that with their kids and to connect over those memories,” Hanley said. The farm is run year-round by a staff of See SLATE RUN FARM, page A2

Pickerington to host annual fishing derby Aug. 13 By NATE ELLIS

ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Experienced youth anglers, as well as those who just wish to try their luck, this month can take a shot at landing a lunker and prizes during Pickerington’s annual fishing derby. On Aug. 13, Sycamore Park will be the site of a competition to see which local youngsters can catch the largest and most fish

swimming in the park’s three-acre pond. The registration deadline for the Pickerington Parks and Recreation Department’s annual fishing derby is Aug. 10. Competitions will be held in divisions for children 8under, 9-10, 11-12, and 13-14. “We usually recommend (age) 4 be the youngest, but we have two awards in each age group,” said Don Ross, program coordinator for the city’s parks and rec

department. “One is for the most fish caught, and one is for the biggest.” The derby will be held from 9:30 to 11 a.m.,which is about 30 minutes earlier than in past years. The time change was made, Ross said, in an effort to beat — or at least bear — the summer heat. This will mark the fifth consecutive year the city has held a youth fishing derby. It’s organized by parks and rec and BrianArnold,

a Pickerington resident and tournament fisherman. “It’s a free event, but you need to register in advance so we know how many people will be participating,” Ross said. “We can have about 90 to 100 kids.” Division winners will receive plaques, and the department is hoping to offer other prizes to participants. Anglers must bring their own fishing equipment, including fish-

ing poles and bait. “They’re allowed to use anything they want to bring for bait,” Ross said. “Most kids use dough balls or earthworms, but they can use lures. “If you get a carp,you’re probably going to win for biggest fish. Brian counts and releases all the fish that are caught.” Registration can be completed

At this point, without group coverage, anyone helping with the project will ha ve to have their own separate liability coverage. The bridge tested positive for lead paint, which is a problem for Hannah, according to council member Bobbie Mershon, because lead paint removal is very costly and requires professional expertise. “I think now (Hannah’s) plan is to paint over the lead paint instead of removing it,” Mershon said. Council president Marilyn Rush-Ekelberry asked whether the railroad was involved in any of the discussion. According to Peoples, he still hasn’t seen any official statement from the railroad giving Hannah permission to repaint the bridge. “Mr. Hannah seems to have very good intentions, and any work that he’s done so far has been done without needing a permit,” Peoples said. “But we’ve never seen permission that the railroad

has given Hannah and we need that to allow the work over the road.” According to city ordinance, for a public right-of-way to be closed for work on private property, the property owner (in this case the Indiana and Ohio Railroad) must apply for the closure. “I received call from the general manager of the railroad and we’ve scheduled a meeting with him for early next week,” Peoples said. “My indication is that they want to open a dialogue which we haven’t gotten from them before. (The manager) said he read the news article about the bridge and they want to sit down and discuss it.” Peoples also reported that the railroad crossing on Gender Road has been repaired and that the Jennings Road storm sewer flood

repair will begin on Tuesday, Aug. 9. Osborn reported that the recent city audit was completed with no issues — the first time she’s ever had a totally “clean” audit, she said. Several council members offered her congratulations for the achievement. Lastly, law director Gene Hollins reported that he has been in contact with SWACO general council and that they will not be acting upon the current solid waste management plan until September. “I don’t know if we’ll take complete credit for that,but I do believe they are trying to work through some review with Ohio EPA,” Hollins said. “We’ve also worked with Ohio EPA to make sure that some of the numbers in this latest draft are solid.”

DESTINATION Continued from page A1 zation as we’re evolving along with the city of Canal Winchester, now that grew out of being a village,” Jarvis said. “Destination: Canal Winchester is interchangeable with the convention and visitor bureau, and this marks the biggest change — adopting a broader citywide mission. “We’re going to continue doing what we’ve done downtown, but we’re in the best position now to take that to the next level,” he said. “That includes w orking with tourism businesses like area hotels.” According to both Jarvis and Garvin, the last year’s success of the first annual Blues and Ribfest, along with other downtown events, triggered the desire to expand the organization’s mission. “The Blues and Ribfest and Labor Day events — we bring in a lot of people from outside of town who then see all of the busi-

nesses we have, so that is kind of what drove the whole thing, to make Canal Winchester a destination as a whole,” Garvin said. “This organization is now going to be both business- and tourismoriented to bring people into Canal Winchester and get them to spend their dollars here.” Garvin also said that the focus on the downtown area is an important part of making the broader mission work. “One of our main focuses is always going to be the do wntown area. Because we feel that the downtown, with the small-town atmosphere with coffee shops and retail shops and such,makes Canal Winchester such a quaint city, and that’s a big draw,” said Garvin. The Main Street Canal Winchester board will meet at the end of August to adopt a new mission statement and begin making the transition of the organization and its branding to the new Destination: Canal Winchester name, ac-

Additionally, baked goods and locally-grown fruits and vegetables will be sold, and Olde Village shops will be open and hold sidewalk sales. Members of the Pickerington-Violet Township Historical Society also will be selling items to benefit its museum. “It gives a chance for people from our community to bring

things they don’t want anymore, or bring their crops and creative art and sell them,” said Maggie Arendt, OPVBA secretary. “It’s also a chance for people to come to our beautiful Olde Village and see the sights and shop at our stores.” Arendt noted that, in addition to some vendors selling food and beverages, downtown restaurants will be open for breakfast and lunch. Olde Village streets will remain open to traffic for the event, and public parking will be avail-

able at 83 W. Columbus St., 51 E.

There’ll be a little bit of e verything.”

As it were

Early ‘lady journalist’ was a newsroom-savvy editor There are still a few places in American life where all of the work is done by people of one gender — modeling men’s or women’s clothing comes to mind — b ut there are not many. Most of the professions, trades and occupations in our society are practiced by ED women as well as men. LENTZ This is not to say that women are always treated the same in these lines of work. It is not too hard to find professions where women are still paid less than men. Why that might be the case, I will leave to writers about the current scene considerably wiser than I. Suffice to say, 100 years ago there were not all that man y women working in the skilled professions outside the home. One of them was Elise Fitch Hinman. And while one might make the case that the kind of w ork she did was still in the throes of becoming a profession, no one ever said that Elise Fitch Hinman was not very good at what she did. And what she did w as write professionally for a local newspaper in Columbus. To appreciate how remarkable this was at the time, we should probably take a quick look at the “newspaper trade” of a century ago. At the turn of the twentieth century, there was no radio, no television and the movies were still machines vaguely resembling an ATM into which one put a nickel to see flickering images of people doing presumably interesting things. Hence the name, nickelodeon. Most people got most of their news from ne wspapers. In Columbus in 1900, there were several to choose from. The town of more than 125,000 people had several daily papers and a number of weeklies as well. Most papers in that era professed a pronounced political viewpoint — in their news pages as well as their editorials. The Ohio State Journal was the official voice of the Ohio Republican Party. For many years, the old Ohio Statesman had done the same thing for the Democrats. It was gone by 1900. By that time, what would become the Columbus Press-Post was trying to be the Democratic paper. In the midst of these partisan struggles were, among other papers, the Columbus Dispatch and the Columbus Citizen. The newspaper trade was a tough business. Whole bundles of newspaper to be sold on one corner or another were sometimes stolen. Paperboys from one paper often literally fought for a lucrative corner with paper boys from another paper . And reporters — a rather hard-living crew — sometimes fought with their rivals from other papers with fists rather than words. The high point, or low point, depending on one’s point of view, of these conflicts had come in 1888 when the two Elliot brothers marched up High Street from the office of their newspaper and shot dead the editor of a competing paper in broad daylight.

The brothers went to jail, but the incident reminded people just how seriously newspaper people took their jobs. Into the midst of all of this came Elise Fitch Hinman. Born in 1863, Elise Hinman was almost 35 in 1898. Educated, literate and frankly a bit bored, she came from an old Columbus family and was looking for something to do. In 1898, she found it.

Canal Winchester to join OCC in 2013 By BRAD EMERINE ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Canal Winchester High School is expected to be approved as a new member of the Ohio Capital Conference when the Executive Committee of Principals meets on Sept. 19. Canal Winchester would replace Watkins Memorial in the 32-team league beginning with the 2013-14 school year. Watkins Memorial is joining the new Licking County League, which will begin operations that same school year. “This is an exciting time for us and

a big change after being a member of the Mid-State League since 1966,” Canal Winchester athletics director Kent Riggs said. “We were comfortable and had great relationships in the MSL. “One of the biggest factors in our switch is that we are one of only two (schools) in the MSL that compete in Division I in most sports. If we’re going to compete in Division I in the postseason tournaments, it would be to our benefit to play Division I schools during the regular seasons.” The OCC Alignment and Expansion Committee made its recommendation

after researching and visiting roughly a dozen schools that filed applications. According to OCC Commissioner Dave Cecutti, in addition to Canal Winchester, among those to apply were MSL members Bexley, Grandview, Teays Valley and Whitehall, as well as Chillicothe, Marion Harding, Jonathan Alder and Logan. “I applaud the Alignment and Expansion Committee for their work the past six to eight months, and it was a tough process,” Cecutti said. “They jumped hurdles and conducted studies to determine which school would fit best.

“When we received all those applications, it also became apparent that we should take a look at a possible fifth division within our league. We’ll continue to look at that and it might be something we need to look at again somewhere down the road.” Canal Winchester will become the first new member of the OCC since Hilliard Bradley opened in 2008-09. Canal Winchester offers 25 sports, one of several criteria that the OCC noted. “There was no one factor any more important than another, but rather the totality of items that led the committee to recommend Canal Winchester,” Ce-

cutti said. “We believe that academic integrity, competitive balance and cultural compatibility all played a factor. We looked at enrollment, population growth, the variety of sports offered, the facilities and community support as well as other items.” The reformation of the Licking County League, which disbanded in 1991, is expected to force realignment in the Mid-State League. Granville, Heath, Lakewood, Licking Heights, Licking Valley and Newark Catholic all will be leaving the MSL for the LCL. Also See OCC, page B2

Junior Tennis

Area team captures Midwest event title By PAUL BATTERSON ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Eric Brunton and his doubles partner, Blake Byrns, towered over the other members of the Columbus team in the Midwest City Team Tennis Championships on July 15-17 in Indianapolis. But according to the 6-foot2 Brunton, a Clintonville native and 2011 Watterson High School graduate, it was the younger, smaller players who stood tall as Columbus captured the team title. “It was nice to have won it, but to be honest, I wasn’t a huge factor,” Brunton said. “It was mostly the little kids who helped us win. I was definitely impressed with them. I know I wasn’t able to play that well when I was their age.” Columbus went 2-1 in the round-robin portion of the eightteam event and defeated Jasper, Ind., 24-16 in a semifinal and Indianapolis Red 28-12 in the final to win the championship outright for the first time in eight years. Columbus was comprised of 21 players in five age groups and coached by Jim Criswell, Scott Gerber and Max Quinton. “It was funny,” Criswell said. “We had Byrns from Westerville Central who is like 6-foot-8 and then we had some guys on the 10-and-under squad who weren’t even 4 feet tall. I was going to get a picture of three or four of the 10-and-unders standing like a totem pole next to Blake. “You didn’t know from match to match who was going to step up. We had really strong 10-andunders, but sometimes we ran into teams who had really good 10-and-unders and it’d be the 18-and-unders that came through. Other times, the 18and-unders got cleaned out and the 10-and-unders would come through.” Joining Brunton and Byrns on the Columbus team were Westerville’s Ryan Wahl and Upper Arlington’s Will Reynolds in the boys 10-11 age group, Powell’s Chloe Sidick and Dublin’s Emma Ferguson in girls 10-11, Lancaster’s Colton Clark, Upper Arlington’s Alex Hulka and Westerville’s Jacob Kotik in boys 12-13, Pataskala’s Lexi Steer and Dublin’s Reagan Resor in girls 12-13, Upper Arlington’s Ty Holsopple and Powell’s Austin Karbler (Olentangy High School) in boys 14-15, Hilliard’s Mary Anne Click (Columbus School for Girls) and Upper Arlington’s Anna Marie Reynolds in girls 14-15, Pickerington’s Patrick Yen (Pickerington North) and Upper Arlington’s Aaron Treglia in boys 16-17, Granville’s Alyssa Moreau and Westerville’s Paige Quinton (CSG) in girls 16-17 and Meghan Letizia (Dublin Coffman) and Upper Arlington’s Lauren Gerber (CSG) in girls 18-and-up. The players qualified for the Columbus team by finishing first or second in their respective age group in the Bernard Master Junior Satellite Circuit tournament held during the winter.

By Mike Munden/The Columbus Dispatch

Ryan Wilson won three events — the long jump, 100-meter hurdles and 300 hurdles — in the 1998 Division I state meet, scoring all of Westerville North’s points to secure a share of the state title with Brunswick. The 1999 North graduate advanced to state in four events each of his four seasons, scoring in 14 of the events.

Top Individual Performances: No. 2

Wilson ran to glory at state in ’98 By JARROD ULREY

Counting down to No. 1

ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Even before Ryan Wilson entered high school, his mother, Cynthia, got a glimpse of the kind of competitor who was emerging under her roof. “He might have been 12 or 13 years old, and he told me, ‘I’m going to go to the state track meet all four years in four events,” his mother said. “That’s exactly what he would do, and he scored in 14 of those 16 events.” Perhaps his greatest feat as a prep athlete occurred in the 1998 Division I state meet, as the Westerville North junior lived up to his own high expectations in many aspects, winning the long jump (23 feet, 1 inch) on the first day of competition and coming back on day two with titles in the 110-meter hurdles (13.95 seconds) and 300 hurdles (37.1). Even with a weekend full of accomplishments, there was a disappointment that is just as memorable to Wilson: He had

ThisWeek Community Newspapers has been around for 22 years. That timeframe was used as the basis to compile a top-10 list of the top individual performances we’ve covered. Along with the experienced sports staff at ThisWeek and Steve Blackledge, high school reporter at The Columbus Dispatch, we arrived at a top-10 list. Below are Nos. 3-10. Check back next week for No. 1 and let us know your thoughts at

NOS. 3-10: 10. MAURICE HALL, Brookhaven football (Oct. 27, 2000) — During a season in which he rushed for 3,057 yards to rank fifth on Ohio’s all-time list, Hall’s most memorable individual performance came during the final week of the regular season. The Bearcats beat Briggs 75-16 as Hall rushed for 411 yards and eight touchdowns on 19 carries. 9. LATOYA TURNER, Pickerington girls basketball (March 19, 1999) — The 6-foot-4 senior helped the Tigers advance to the Division I state final

to settle for seventh place in the 200. Although athletes now receive two points for finishing seventh and one point for eighth in an

The Ohio State recruit made 12 of 14 shots from the floor and was 5-for-6 from the free-throw line while adding five rebounds, four steals and two assists. 8. DARCY FISHBACK, Upper Arlington girls swimming (Feb. 27-28, 2009) — During preliminaries Feb. 27, Fishback broke the state record in the 100-yard butterfly when she finished in 53.38 seconds. She won her fourth state title in the event the next day in 54.17 seconds. Fishback also swam on two state-record relays: the 200 medley (1:43.59) and the 200 freestyle (1:34.24). 7. CHARLES JOHNSON, Watkins Memorial boys basketball (Feb. 24, 1995) — There have been few more surprising performances than what this 5-8 senior guard accomplished in leading the Warriors to a 93-87 overtime upset of second-seeded and stateranked London in the second round of the Division II district tournament. Watkins Memorial was just 1-19 entering the matchup but got 57 points

from Johnson, who made 19 of 34 from floor, including eight 3-pointers, and was 11-for-15 from the free-throw line. He added eight rebounds, six steals and five assists. 6. KHALILAH CARPENTER, Brookhaven girls track and field (June 2-3, 2000) — At the 2000 Division I state meet, the junior broke the meet and state records in the 100 meters with a time of 11.59 seconds on June 2. The next day, she won the 100 in 11.71 and the 200 title in 23.69, a time that lowered the state mark she already held. 5. JEFF BACKES, Upper Arlington football (Dec. 2, 2000) — In leading the Golden Bears to the Division I state title, the 5-9, 180-pound senior turned in a performance worthy of the Ohio Mr. Football award that he had received days earlier. Backes rushed for 183 yards and two touchdowns on 32 carries and preserved a 15-9 victory over Solon at Fawcett Stadium in Canton with an interception with less than a minute remaining. 4. COURTNEY SMITH, Hilliard David-

son softball (May 17 and 19, 2006) — Smith brought to a close what remains the longest OHSAA softball tournament game, hitting a grand slam in the bottom of the 22nd inning for a 41 victory over Olentangy Liberty and a Division I district championship for the Wildcats. It was Smith’s first career home run. She also stood out in the circle, striking out 29 while pitching a complete game. She didn’t allow a run until the top of the 22nd. 3. GREG AVERY, Newark boys basketball (March 15, 2008) — Avery led the Wildcats to a 65-52 victory over Lakewood St. Edward in the Division I state championship game. The 6-3 senior forward tied his career high of 33 points on 14 of 18 shooting and added 11 rebounds, three assists and four steals as the Wildcats captured their first state title since 1943. Avery made third-team all-state his senior season as he averaged 18.9 points, 8.6 rebounds and 4.2 assists. He became the sixth player in program history to score more than 1,000 points, finishing with 1,131 career points.

Coaches face ‘delicate balance’ with scrimmages By JARROD ULREY ThisWeek Community Newspapers

On the way to its first losing season in 12 years last fall, an already young and undersized Ready High School football team was hindered further when it lost an expected two-way starter to a broken leg. The fact that Christian Knapper went down on the second play of the Silver Knights’ final preseason scrimmage to end his senior season virtually before it started was all the more painful. The 2011 preseason gets under way See TENNIS, page B2 Tuesday, Aug. 9, with a series of

matchups that includes Grove City traveling to Upper Arlington and Gahanna playing host to Olentangy Liberty. From Aug. 9-20, coaches and players will compete in various scrimmages throughout central Ohio in preparation for the coming season. They’ll be crossing their fingers that they won’t face a similar situation to what the Silver Knights and Knapper did last fall. “Injuries like that usually are freak accidents where somebody twists somebody or gets pretzeled underneath a pile,” Ready coach Larry Wolf said. “(Knapper’s injury was) where the kid tried to

stop and cut. Most of the time freak injuries are a total accident where there’s no rhyme or reason to them. Our kids are well-conditioned and well-prepared and we just tell them to go out and play hard.” After three seasons in which his team stayed mostly healthy over the course of each season, DeSales coach Ryan Wiggins watched last year as several key regular-season injuries, including one to running back Warren Ball that lingered much of the fall, hindered his team’s success. Like Wolf, however, Wiggins isn’t planning to keep his players from giv-

ing their best effort just to try to keep them from getting injured, and that includes when they’re competing in a preseason scrimmage. “It’s a delicate balance,” Wiggins said. “It always bothers me when a kid gets hurt in practice, but you’ve got to prepare physically. You’re trying to be smart when it’s your own guys, but when you play a different-colored jersey, you’ve just got to play. Usually when injuries occur they are freak things and you can’t worry about them.” Most of central Ohio’s teams are comSee FOOTBALL, page B2

WILSON score all of our points, that was just the icing on the cake.” “Even though I happened to score all of the points, that was one of the best teams we’ve ever had,” Wilson said. “Even though it’s an individual sport, I still have a lot of friends from that team. That was the last meet in ‘The Horseshoe,’ and I’m really proud I was able to be a part of people sending the track out in style.” Wilson comes from a family of track athletes. His brother, Glen, was a three-time state meet competitor for Academy who later competed in track for Yale. His mother coached track in the 1980s and early 1990s, making stops at Columbus Central, Centennial and Academy, and remains a teacher at Academy. After Wilson graduated from North, he competed for the University of Southern California, winning an NCAA title in the 110 hurdles in 2003. He also w as the bronze medalist in the IAFF World Athletics Final in 2008. Wilson has been a professional track athlete since 2004. In the USATF Outdoor Nationals on June 25 in Eugene, Ore., he finished 16th (13.52) in the semifinals of the 110 hurdles senior race as the top eight advanced to the final. He then traveled to Europe to compete in meets in Switzerland and France in July . He also w as expected to travel to Sweden for a meet in late July. Now 30 years old, Wilson expects to continue competing professionally for at least two years and possibly as many as six. He has lived in Los Angeles since 1999. “It’s a lot of fun to compete in Europe, ” he said. “It’s always nice to kno w that there’s a knowledgeable fan base over there that really appreciates you. It’s refreshing. I definitely feel fortunate to be able to travel like this, and I’m trying to enjoy the parts that I can. Not a lot of people are able to see the world like I have.” Although he’s competed in track meets in front of as many as 75,000 f ans in Europe, the sheer magnitude of winning three state titles is something Cynthia Wilson believes will live on in the memories of track fans throughout Ohio. “The further you get a way from it, the more you realize what a big deal it w as, especially since it was in Division I,” she said. “It was the last time the meet was held at Ohio State, so that was fun, too. He’s always set all of these goals for himself and some of those goals ha ve eluded him, but he’s been able to run at the highest levels.

Members of the Columbus team which competed in the Midwest City Team Tennis Championships included (front row) Ryan Wahl; (second row) Emma Ferguson, Lexi Steer, Chloe Sidick, Reagan Resor, Will Reynolds, Jacob Kotik, Alex Hulka, Colton Clark and Austin Karbler; (third row) head coach Jim Criswell, Patrick Yen, Mary Anne Click, Ann Marie Reynolds, Alyssa Moreau, Meghan Letizia, Lauren Gerber, Tyler Holsopple, Paige Quinton, Aaron Treglia and assistant coach Max Quinton; (back row) Eric Brunton, Blake Byrns.

TENNIS singles and mixed doubles matches. Letizia went undefeated in the girls 18-andunder singles play and teamed with Gerber to win four doubles matches. Steer and Resor teamed to win four matches in 12-and-under doubles, and Treglia and Quinton teamed to win four matches in 16-and-under mixed doubles. Criswell said what impressed him the most about his team’s performance was the team unity. “It didn’t matter what age group was playing, there was someone from our team there cheering the players on,” he said. “You would have a 10-and-under (player) out there playing and there were the 18-and-under bo ys cheering him on. It’s such a team-oriented thing.”

In the Midwest City Team Tennis Championships, each player had to play one set of a singles match, doubles match and mix ed-doubles match, with each match being w orth one point. A team had to score more than 20 points to win the match. Columbus started the tournament by defeating Indianapolis Blue 32-8 and Chicago 22-18 and losing to St. Louis 21-19 in round-robin play. Although three teams tied for f irst with identical 2-1 records, Columbus won its flight with 73 points, finishing ahead of Chicago (71) and St. Louis (69). Columbus’ 14-and-under players dominated in singles and mixed doubles, going 30-0. Click, Holsopple, Karbler and Reynolds each won all five

FOOTBALL Continued from page B1 peting in two scrimmages, although a fe w will play tw o scrimmages from Aug. 9-16 and a third that the OHSAA deems a “jamboree” scrimmage from Aug. 18-20. Because the OHSAA requires all schools to pay $250 to its Catastrophic Insurance Fund if they choose to compete in a third preseason game, schools may charge admission to the jamboree. Olentangy Orange opens its scrimmage schedule Aug. 13 against visiting Kings Mills Kings and plays host to Westland on Aug. 16 before playing host to Reynoldsburg on Aug. 19 in a jamboree. According to Pioneers coach Brian Cross, the scrimmage against Westland will be a “passing scrimmage.” Although both teams will have 11 players on the field unlike in the 7-on-7 passing tournaments during the summer, at least seven of every 11 plays will be passes. Cross considers it to be a sign of the times as teams continue to develop more complex passing offenses. Westland’s new coach, Steve White, was an assistant under Cross when the two were on the same coaching staff at Grove City. “I don’t know what other people are doing, but having two scrimmages when we tackle and run the ball is enough, ” Cross said. “This gives us a chance to have the defense see more passing, and we’ll mix in a few draw plays.” While some teams prefer to play a neighborhood school that could bring unique intensity during their scrimmage opener, others will enter their f irst scrimmage with an eye on keeping it simple.

pion Hartley will meet in the opening scrimmage for both teams Aug. 13 at Hartley.

event. I had chosen to run the 200 instead of the (1,600 relay) that year and I remember I got seventh because I didn’t run all the way through the line. I remember when I w atched the replay on the screen that someone was able to pass me right at the end. That extra point I didn’t get was what I remember the most because my team didn’ t win the (outright championship).” Wilson’s performance in the 1998 state meet was part of one of the most remarkable prep careers of any central Ohio track athlete. In 1996 as a freshman at Columbus Academy, he took second in the long jump,was fifth in the 110 hurdles and ran the anchor leg of the winning 1,600 relay in the Division III state meet. That performance followed a boys soccer season in which he helped the Vikings win the 1995 Di vision II state title. Wilson transferred to Westerville North midway through his sophomore season and immediately became a standout at the Division I track level. In the 1997 state meet, he took fourth in the long jump, fourth in the 110 hurdles and fourth in the 300 hurdles and helped the 1,600 relay finish third. In 1998, during the final state track meet held at Ohio Stadium, he was one of five North athletes competing but the only one who scored. The 3,200 relay of Nathan Aichele, Jared Conley, Jason Conley and Tyler Pensyl also represented the Warriors but didn’t place. In 1999 at Welcome Stadium in Dayton, Wilson defended his titles in the 110 hurdles (13.7) and 300 hurdles (36.46) and finished third in the long jump (23-7 1/4). He also competed in the 1,600 relay that failed to place. “It was amazing, watching Ryan perform the way that he did,” said Pensyl, who went on to run for Denison University and has been working for the law firm of Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease as an associate for five years. “He rose to the occasion. We only lost one meet all year, and we had a number of outstanding individuals. It really felt like a team championship and I thought it was a reflection of everything that we did that year.” According to Bob Ca vin, who was North’s coach in 1998 and currently serv es as an assistant football and track coach at Ne w Albany, a now-famous T-shirt was produced after the first day of the state meet. On the front, the shirt read, “Get outta my way. I’m on Ryan Wilson’s team.” On the back, it read, “I made it to the state meet, too.” “It was a great team accomplishment and Ryan was just the leader ,” Cavin said. “For Ryan to

During The Beat’s interview

1 with Keith Roberts of The

Young Dubliners (see bit on Dublin Irish festival, this page), we asked him how he holds up vocally during an especially busy stretch, in light of having had surgery on his vocal cords a couple of years back. First off, he told us, he’s been at this for so long, most nights for 20 years, he wasn’t concerned. Second, he said, was that his band is about the band, not about his voice. “I’m not going out there and doing a Josh Groban impression.” But never fear, Groban himself will be doing Josh Gr oban Friday, Aug. 5, at the Schottenstein Center.

Everyone’s an O’. As in the wearing o’ the green or the raising o’ the wrist. The Dublin Irish Festival is three days (Aug. 57) o’ music and merriment (and lots of other stuff, but we’re primarily concerned with those two). Live entertainment on seven main stages, plus a handful of other dance, music and cultural programming, makes for a weekend with something for everyone. Dervish, Teada and the festival debut of Beoga for the traditionalists; Gaelic Storm, Scythian and The Young Dubliners (see our interview with frontman Keith Roberts at – we’ll be BeatBlogging from that interview as well) for the rockers; Moya Brennan or The Step Crew for something perhaps not quite as easily defined; plus the North Coast Pipe Band, Liz Carroll, the intimacy of the Celtic Music House,plenty of dancing, a host of local Celtic acts lik e Knot Fibb’n and Lone Raven … we could go on.



It’s a labor of love for Entertainment Committee chair Morton O’Kelly (who suggests charting out your musical day in advance, so as not to miss anything) and his mates. All the details are available at

Genre-bending banjo 5 player Bela Fleck and his

Flecktones mates Victor Wooten and Future Man reunited with original fourth member , harmonica player e xtraordinaire Howard Levy, a couple years back and the band is now touring in support of the original lineup’s first new record in almost 20 years. Fleck was kind enough to respond to some questions posed by The Beat in advance of the band’s Aug. 9 date at Lifestyle Communities Pavilion ($28/$32; 1-800-7453000) with Bruce Hornsby and his band. Read additional Qs and As in the BeatBlog.

Bela Fleck and the Flecktones

The Beat: How have you felt about the Flecktones through the years — as a sort of home base musically or as one equal piece of each player’s larger puzzle? Bela Fleck: The Flecktones has been my most consistent musical outlet. I (along with Victor and Future Man) have played in this group for 24 years. And it is built around our strengths. Chick Corea talks about a band being like a mother ship for the members to orbit. That analogy may work. Sometimes we leave the mother ship for long periods b ut we always have come back. The Beat: It’s well documented that the lineup was originally assembled for a one-off gig. Can you explain how you put the players together and what triggered the idea to take it beyond that original plan? Bela Fleck: Originally, the band was put together to play for 30 minutes on a one-hour PBS show that I was fortunate enough to land. When we hit the stage the magic was palpable, and it gave all of us something to think about. I was playing in a band called New Grass Revival at that time, so it was hard to find time to get together till after Christmas. I put together four clubs for us to play, so we could see what happened. It got even better, so we decided to record. That album was picked up by Warner Brothers, and I left New Grass to go full time with the Flecktones. I could see that this was a once in a lifetime opportunity. The Beat: Talk about reconnecting with Howard Levy and what he means to the Flecktones. Bela Fleck: Howard is a genius, and what he has done with harmonica in particular , is unprecedented. When Howard left, he was

very hard to replace, and the music changed a lot, and in some attractive ways. All the musicians who played with us o ver the next 17 years brought so much to the music. These four guys are the band that I put together. The music was really envisioned with these guys. And having Howard back completes the original intention of the group. So it is feeling great to all of us. The Beat: How is making Flecktones music the same and how is it different from when you started 20 or so years ago? Bela Fleck: The process was a bit different making the recording, since we were not on tour, rehearsing at sound-checks. But we fell quickly into our old rhythm of w orking together, and really agreed most of the time on what worked best. The Beat: How difficult is it to set list with the amount of material you have from which to draw? With Howard back will there be a greater emphasis on the first few records? Bela Fleck: The set list is fun.We are playing two-thirds of the music from the new album, and everything is from the first three albums. We have been mostly playing the same tunes from night to night, but that is because once the tour started,there hasn’t been much rehearsal time. As we continue,we will work up the rest of the ne w album, and some different old tunes. The Beat: Touring with Bruce Hornsby — can we expect plenty of cross-pollination in your sets? Bela Fleck: Yes, we intend to set up the stage so that both bands can be on stage simultaneously and anyone can sit in with anyone. Bruce and the Flecktones have a long and rich friendship,and we are all very happy to finally be doing a major tour together.

Harvest Pizzeria: New spot serves superlative pies On an opening-day visit, I was so blown away by the great pizzas and general sophistication of Harvest Pizzeria I couldn’t believe it had only been in business for a few hours. Ergo, I went back the very next day to confirm what I ate was in fact that sensational. Well, it was, and frankly it’s a good bet I’m perched on a seat there right now, buzzsawing through marvelous Harvest munchies while you’re reading this. Man, the German Village pizza scene has gone from famine to feast at warp speed. So what was formerly an area of town blessed with a wealth of terrific restaurants but cursed with a dearth of pizzerias is now home to the very best place to eat pizzas in Columbus. That’s because not only does Harvest crank out phenomenal ’zas,but from top to bottom, from its cute, Euro-ish patio to its tastefully

MENU by G. A. BENTON understated and hip, openkitchen-equipped dining room, Harvest exhibits extraordinary smarts and style. First of all, the building looks like an — and I ne ver use this adjective — adorable brick cottage. Secondly, the non-pizza portion of the menu includes an engaging and non-cliche wine list; cocktails made with topnotch liquids; and excellently sourced, handmade appetizers and desserts. As a small plate, the WildCaught Galician Sardines ($8, but not on the menu the last time I went) ate like an elegant little salad. I loved its hefty hunks of white-fleshed and salmon-like fish, fresh fennel fronds, tender

lettuces and tongue-tinglingly citric dressing. But I had plenty more love to give when it came to the housemade Warm Ricotta ($8). Drizzled with balsamic vinegar plus lavender honey and brightened by lemon zest, this impressive, fresh-cheesy curd-fest tasted like the kind of Italian-style cheesecake you might eat in a real and real fancy Italian restaurant.

While far from bad, the House Chopped Salad ($9) suffered by comparison. Similarly, this colorful, crunchy and fun-to-munch ensemble had elements — salty and evanescent shaved ricotta salata curls and killer tomatoes from an owner’s Canal Winchester farm — that outclassed others (canned olives and chickpeas and iceberg lettuce). OK, those game-changing piz-

zas. I’ve eaten dozens of pizzas in Italy, where crust is king,and these Harvest pies are excitingly close to the real thing.They’re thin and delicate in the center but sexily puffy, charred and woodsmoke scented on their perfectly chewy edges. Yet whereas crusts and the (crushed-tomatolike) house sauce are classically Italian, toppings are up-to-theminute chic American. Here are a few highly recommended pies I tried. • Ohio Bacon ($14): Slightly sweet and salty, this beauty contained: Canadian-style bacon made with Ohio swine, milky fresh mozzerella, roasted red peppers and a garnish of superfresh marjoram. • Goat Cheese ($15): Thinly sliced sopressata (lusty salami), Ohio goat cheese, caramelized onions and lots of jammy oven-blistered tomatoes make this pizza soar.

Harvest Pizza Address: 495 S. 4th St., German Village Phone: (614) 824-1769 Web:

• Yuma ($13): This zesty, Southwestern model’s designed for spice lo vers because its smoky chipotle-accented sauce strikes fire with jalapenos and clumps of chorizo; corn,havarti cheese and roasted red peppers tame the flames a bit. • Fennel Sausage ($15): Rich, sharp and bold with local gouda, smoked provolone, excellent sausage, onion and fennel pollen. Homemade desserts can wow too, such as the surprisingly fancy Butterscotch Budino ($6). Kinda like a dense pudding parfait with a lovely — and barely sweet — scorched sugar character, it has tart creme fraiche plus toasted hazelnuts and vanilla-scented Maldon sea salt for extra depth and texture.

Latest Bethel Road restaurant puts emphasis on sushi Yun Hui “Yumi” Wada wouldn’t put her new restaurant in just any area of town. But Northwest Side residents have shown their fondness for sushi and other Asian fare, so she’s comfortable opening her new, sophisticated Japanese restaurant in the busy Bethel Road corridor. “A lot of people here know how to eat sushi,” she said. And Wada will put their appetites to the test with her latest venue, Aoi, which opens Aug. 8 at 876-878 Bethel Road. On Wednesdays and Thursdays, the restaurant will offer all-you-can-eat sushi

— maki rolls, nigiri and sashimi — for $29. Aoi, meaning blue in Japanese, is a big-ticket venture that transformed the 5,000-square-foot space formerly occupied by Einstein Bros. Bagels and Boston Market, a move that required Wada had to get a rezoning for the property. The interior features two distinctive dining rooms. One is the bar area,with a granite bar that seats 15 and another 100 or so in a casual space that will offer TV sets, eight beers on draft and deejay-spun music seven days a week. The other room is a more formal dining area, with an extended blue granite sushi bar and also seating for 100. Indeed, the immediate area is flush with sushi options, including Akai Hana, Basho, Yoshi’s and Blue Ginger. Wada said the demand is obvious, so she’ s not worried about saturation. She will have four sushi chefs so customers can avoid By Chris Parker/ThisWeek long waits.

teriyaki, katsu and noodle dishes, all competitively priced, she said. However, hibachi will not be offered. The restaurant has made use of a leftover drive-through window, but orders must be placed 30 to 60 minutes in advance. Wada and her family are the operators of three successful restaurants:two Genji Japanese steakhouses and San-Su,a Korean barbecue that Wada opened earlier this year on Bethel Road.Wada said they will soon start construction on Genji Go, a takeout restaurant on Brice Road. Aoi will be open lunch and dinner hours daily. For more information, call (614) 824-2664. Speaking of Bethel Road, Buckeye Pho Asian Restaurant is slated to open next month in the Olentangy Plaza. The owner is Max Tat, a Spagio and Molly Woo alumnus and classically trained chef. It will become one of three restaurants on Bethel that specialize in Pho,the Vietnamese noodle soup. The other two are Bamboo Café and Lac Viet. A key difference: Buckeye Pho also will offer a full Chinese menu. The restaurant is just around the corner from the new Five Guys Burgers and Fries.
