Anti-crime summit scheduled for Aug. 10 By KEVIN PARKS

ThisWeek Community Newspapers

As the Clintonville Area Commission’s safety liaison, District 7 representative Dave Southan keeps his ear to the ground to stay on top of crime in the neighborhood. Lately, that ear’s been getting pretty sore. “I’ve had it,” Southan said. Last week, the commission member announced that he was calling an anti-

crime summit for Wednesday, Aug. 10. Billed as “Neighbors Against Crime,” the gathering will start at 7 p.m. in the Charity Newsies b uilding, 4300 Indianola Ave. Dave Southan Southan said he expects to have representatives of the Columbus Division of Police, various other city departments and members of the Fraternal Order of Police Capital

City Lodge No. 9 on hand for the meeting. “I’ve had countless calls from people who are concerned about the crime in Clintonville,” Southan said, “and they want something done about it. They’re tired of going to bed at night frightened that they might wake up and find someone standing over them.” Recent weeks have brought reports of burglaries, auto break-ins, door-todoor scams, vendors operating without a permit and “Dumpster divers who go

throughout the neighborhood (and) some of them are pretty unsavory,” according to Southan. The latter, he said, do more than just pick through trash. They also, in some instances, walk up into yards or take items from the backs of pickup trucks, claiming, if caught, that these things were being thrown out anyway. “We need help,” Southan said. “I’ve invited everyone from the mayor’s office on down. I hope to pack that buildSee ANTI-CRIME SUMMIT, page A4

One is “webmistress” Kim Kovarik, who is helping to keep interested parties informed of developments, and the other is Jason V. Advani as treasurer. The treasurer’s post had to be filled, according to McLaughlin, because the arboretum steering committee is already spending some of the money received in grants from the Jeffrey Fund of the Columbus Foundation by United Crestview Area Neighbors and Friends of the Lower Olentangy Watershed.

The second weekend of September this year was to have brought not only the annual Clintonville Tour of Homes, but also the 10-year anniversary of 9/11. Now, it will only be the solemn observation of the worst terrorist attack in the history of the United States. This year’s Clintonville Tour of Homes will not take place.

Digital Bookmobile to come to library branches The Columbus Metropolitan Library will be hosting stops on the Digital Bookmobile National Tour on Friday, Aug. 19, at the Whetstone and New Albany branches. Times for the visits by the 18wheel tractor-trailer, which is designed to help readers of all ages learn how to download digital materials from the local library’s growing collection, have not yet been determined, according to the announcement from Digital Bookmobile’s operator, Cleveland-based OverDrive Inc. “This 74-foot community outreach vehicle is a high-tech update of the traditional bookmobile that has served communities for decades,” according to OverDrive spokeswoman Brianne Carlon. “The vehicle is equipped with broadband Internet-connected PCs,

high definition monitors, premium sound systems and a v ariety of portable media players, all of which help visitors explore Columbus Metropolitan Library’s download service. Interactive learning stations give visitors an opportunity to search the library’s digital media collection, use supported mobile de vices, and sample eBooks, audio books, music and video.” The vehicle features a “gadget gallery” of devices compatible with the Columbus Metropolitan Library’s download service. “Patrons can take advantage of the download service 24/7 when they visit the library’s website,” Carlon wrote in announcing the Digital Bookmobile’s local stops. “From there, they can browse the growing collection of bestselling,

new release and classic titles,and check out a digital title with a valid library card. Once downloaded, digital titles can be enjoyed on a computer or transferred to supported mobile devices. At the end of the lending period, titles will automatically expire and are returned to the digital collection. “There are never late fees or damaged items.” OverDrive Inc., according to the announcement, powers download websites for more than 15,000 libraries around the world. The New Albany branch, which will be visited by the Digital Bookmobile on Aug. 19, is located at 200 Market St. The Whetstone branch is in Clintonville at 3909 N. High St. More information is available at

representative on the Clintonville Area Commission, announced receipt of the grants, totaling $12,000, by the two organizations in early December. The boundaries for the arboretum are Weber Road to the north, North High Street to the west,the railroad tracks to the east andArcadia Street from North High to Indianola Avenue and then Hudson from Indianola to the railroad tracks to the south. Creating the arboretum will initially involve planting a canopy of native trees similar to what once connected the Glen Echo and Walhalla ravines. Volunteers were scheduled to go out last weekend and begin removing invasive species, particularly honeysuckle, from within the Glen Echo ravine. Other, lower-growing native species will eventually be planted under the canopy of taller ones. These won’t be just any trees, McLaughlin pointed out. Dan Struve, Ph.D., a member of the United Crestvie w Area Neighbors group that applied for the grant, has been collecting local seeds from native species. Struve, who is with the Department of Horticultural and Crop Sciences at Ohio State University, has grown trees from these seeds that will be purchased by grant money for the arboretum. “We’re using the strain that is currently here,” McLaughlin said. “We’re trying to do it from local seeds.” And all should be a go for the scheduled planting, he added. “As far as the initial project at

hand, planting trees this fall, the city has sent us a list of addresses where they think trees can be planted,” McLaughlin said. This totals 242 locations. City officials will be sending out postcards in advance of the October planting, allowing residents at these addresses to opt out if they don’t want a tree. “The city has told us that up to 10 percent will opt out,” McLaughlin said. Even if that holds true, and steering committee members will be visiting those who say they don’t want a tree to “discover their objection and see if we can overcome it,” McLaughlin said, which will still be a good start on an urban arboretum. Arboretum steering committee members have also begun mapping out walking tours within the arboretum, one relatively short and the other considerably longer. Each showcases some of the different trees within the plantings, McLaughlin said. Once homeowners grant their permission, markers will be posted on some of the trees to identify them,he said. These might be on small rocks,although some have suggested using etched granite markers like the S S Co er in lu vin ce m g 19 bus 66

ones in the series of five Trees Atlanta urban arboretums. “We were in touch with them and they say those do go missing,” McLaughlin said. Also, with a budget of only $15 a tree, rocks probably make more financial sense for the tree-identifying markers. “I think not only do we w ant this to be an arboretum, but also those involved want to see it become a conserv ation area, ” McLaughin said. This would involve many more rain barrels at homes within the arboretum’s boundaries, increased composting by residents,perhaps one day a planted median along Indianola Avenue and even in the future a return to brick streets,according to the steering committee member and likely chairman. All of that will take funding, which is where others in the community might be able to help, McLaughlin said. “Anyone who has experience in grant writing (is needed), because there’s a lot of money out there to be had, but not too many people on the working committee have too much experience in grant writing,” McLaughlin said.

Anti-crime summit scheduled for Aug. 10 Continued from page A1 ing. I’m talking to businesses to let them know. The more the merrier. We need to have a solution, an overall solution, for Clintonville. “I’ve alerted all the Block Watches to let them kno w to come to the meeting and they’re going to spread the word throughout the community.” Clintonville Area Commission chairman John DeFourny praised Southan for his work as safety liaison and for convening “Neighbors Against Crime.” “The crime summit is important because it’s starting to reach a level where it’s out of hand,” DeFourny said. “Violent crime is starting to appear in Clintonville. “Southan is putting full-time hours in his caring for the community. That’s what drives him is his love for his neighborhood and for his community, Clintonville. We have few people advocating like him.” During a recent period, according to the safety liaison, an area just south of Clintonville that’s covered by the same police precinct had 13 burglaries reported.

In that same time period, Southan said that nearly as many burglaries were reported in his section of central Clintonville. “In my district, there were 11,” Southan said. “We’re just two under the bad zone, really. “It’s a good neighborhood,” he added. “That’s why we get it,because everybody outside our circumference knows it’s a decent, good neighborhood. That’s why they come to Clintonville to do their shopping after hours.” “With urbanization comes crime,” DeFourny said, “and with increased density we’re facing more crime in the future.You get more urban problems.” In the wake of similar mounting incidents of crime throughout Clintonville, Southan convened a similar meeting several years ago. Between 200 and 300 residents turned out at Whetstone High School, the area commission member recalled, and the result was increased vigilance and a greater sense of security. Southan is hoping the same thing results from the Aug. 10 meeting. “What I want to see come out of it, I want to be able to ease their minds,” he said. “There will be some instruction by the police

on how to safeguard your home.” “The community knows what to do,” DeFourny said, but reminders are always helpful. For example, people shouldn’t leave their property in total darkness at night, even when they are home. Motion sensors that turn on outside lights when someone approaches are a good idea, Southan said. And by all means, he added, don’t leave valuable items, even loose change in an ashtray, visible in parked vehicles. Global positioning satellite devices are particularly targets of thieves, Southan said, who can be alerted to their presence by the faintest of traces. “These people look for spit marks on the windshield (from the suction cup on a GPS unit),” he said. “If they see that, they know darn well you’ ve got a GPS.” While more and more Clintonville residents are becoming aware of and concerned about crime, the CAC chairman said that whole blocks of the neighborhood have not yet experienced burglaries and car break-ins. Yet. “So we need to beat the drum,” DeFourny said.

Farmers markets strengthen economy and community A good dinner can satisfy more than just your appetite. Farmers markets are a critical part of creating sustainable food systems which nourish our bodies, our communities, our local economy and our environment. On any given Saturday, if you visit the Clintonville Farmers Market in Columb us, you’ll see streams of families with wagons, baskets and reusable bags brimming with meats and cheese,local produce and fresh baked goods; farmers under shade tents, chatting with customers; bouquets of flowers in every color of the rainbow; and chef demonstrations and workshops showcasing how to enjoy and preserve the tastes of the season. National Farmers Market Week, Aug. 7-13, gives us an opportunity to celebrate this important and rapidly growing segment of the agricultural economy in Ohio. Since the nonprofit Clintonville Farmers Market opened in 2003, the number of producers, customers and space has quadrupled. An estimated 40,000 or more customers visit the market each year, generating close to $750,000 for the local economy. A record 67 producers are part of the market’s 2011 season, bringing fruit, vegetables, cheese, honey, grains, grass-fed, pasture-raised and freerange meat of all kinds, eggs, maple syrup, mushrooms, sprouts, artisan breads and baked goods, jams, flowers, plants and more to area residents. According to the USDA, the Clintonville Farmers Market is just one of at least 288 farmers markets in Ohio, up from 213 just one year ago. Since 1994, the number of farmers markets in the U.S. has grown from 1,755 to 7,902 in 2010 — a 350-percent increase. Nationally, these markets generate more than $1 billion in sales. The boom in farmers markets parallels a larger trend in consumer demand and growth in the

CAROL GOLAND & LAURA ZIMMERMAN organic foods and products. The organic industry has grown from $3.6 billion in 1997 to $29 billion in 2010. While the rest of the economy is in a slow-down, the organic industry continues to grow, supporting 14,540 organic farms and ranches in the U.S., many of which continue to expand and add employees to k eep pace with growing demand. Although Ohio has lost more than 6.9 million acres of farmland to development over the past five decades, or about 15 acres an hour for the last 50 years,Ohio’s farmers markets are helping to preserve Ohio’s farmland and rural heritage by providing low-cost entry points for small, mid-size and beginning farmers to incubate their businesses. With the help of farmers markets, more farmers are choosing to stay in agriculture, and by selling direct to consumers, these farmers keep more of their profits and are able to make a better living from farming. At the Clintonville Farmers

Market, one-quarter of the farmers are under 40 years old and approximately 90 percent of the market’s producers are start-up and small farming operations. Farmers markets are about connection. At farmers markets, customers can meet and talk with the farmers who grow their food. Customers tell the farmers what they want, what they enjoy eating, and how they prepare food; farmers tell the customer what grows in Ohio, how it was grown and when it was harvested. The community of farmers, customers, neighboring shops and residents,cooks, and musicians join together in the timeless celebration of the harvest that comes from our surrounding land. Farmers markets also deliver some of the freshest, most delicious ingredients available for food lovers of all stripes. Locally grown organic fruits and vegetables found at farmers markets are usually harvested within 24 hours of being purchased by the consumer. Produce from California can’t be that fresh and it does-

Workshops aim to help owners of older homes Continued from page A1 of Central Ohio and the National Trust for Historic Preservation, according Columbus Landmarks Foundation executive director Kathy Mast Kane. “The premise being that if we, as owners, learned to do this routine maintenance and inspection, we prevent major expenses down the road and make home ownership more attractive,” Kane said last week. Nathalie Wright, a field representative for both the Columbus Landmarks Foundation and National Trust for Historic Preservation, is providing staffing for the initiative.

The term “older homes” is loosely defined, according to Kane, but it generally refers to ones that are approaching 50 or possibly well beyond. That covers a lot of territory in neighborhoods such as Clintonville and in many of Northland’s subdivisions, Kane pointed out. “There are a lot of ranch subdivisions and they are approaching that 50-year mark,” Kane said. “Maybe the message is for residents in those neighborhoods — they may not be thinking of their homes as ‘older’ but truly, they are approaching a 50th birthday or are just past it. “It doesn’t have to be a turn-of-the-

century home for this to be applicable.” A home doesn’t even necessarily have to be very old at all, the foundation executive director said. “The truth of the matter is, I believe these workshops would have pertinent content for owners of any home,” Kane said. Funding from the United Way and the National Trust helps hold down the costs of putting on the workshops so as many people as possible can and will attend. With luck, Kane said, this will lead to houses getting the attention they need and being preserved because they are well worth the effort. “I think fundamentally what we know

about homes, particularly those that are 50 years or older, they come with great bones in terms of what they were originally constructed with and the craftsmanship that went into them,” Kane said. The workshops encourage participants, whether tackling repair and restoration projects themselves or hiring someone, to bring that same attention to craftsmanship, rather than just doing something cosmetic, she added. “It’s kind of demystifying the process and making it more manageable,” Kane said. “And at the same time, through that educational process, people will learn more about the process and more about themselves, so they can learn if

Tour of homes postponed to 2012 Continued from page A1 cluding more than 2,700 at the World Trade Center. All 19 terrorists also perished. With the events of that day a decade in the past, Lusch said that board members decided not to disrupt the normal schedule for the tour of homes, which raises money for the Clintonville Community Fund that is used to provide grants to local organizations. But it soon became apparent, the board

president said, that some in Clintonville felt going ahead with the event on that weekend would have been “disrespectful.” “Sponsorships were not coming in as usual so that kind of told us perhaps it wasn’t a good idea to keep having it on the second Sunday in September, at least this year,” Lusch said. By delaying the tour of homes to 2012, he added, the event can be held in conjunction with the bicentennial celebration for Columbus.


“There’s a lot of history in Old Beechwold, so with good resources and partnerships with the city, we’ll be able to forge ahead and kind of make it a bigger tour. And already in talking with some of the sponsors, they’ve said we’ll be on board for next year and they appreciate us being respectful of 9/11,” Lusch said. Reserves in the Community Fund will enable board members to still provide grants to local groups and organizations, “but not as large as we want them to be,” the board president added.

it’s something they want to take on themselves or if they want to hire a professional.” The presentations include pointers on finding the right contractor. “It’s about getting multiple opinions and bids, and it’s about understanding what you want to have done … that’s in the best interest of your pocketbook and your house,” Kane said. Space is limited for the Aug. 13 workshops and early registration is encouraged. For more information or to register, call (614) 221-4508 or visit www.

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

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 wellprepared 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 se veral 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 giving 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 competing in two scrimmages, although a few will play two 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 the y choose to compete in a third preseason game, schools may char ge admission to the jamboree.

Athletes share thoughts, advice For more than a decade, I have had student-athletes write in this summer series and the three questions that I enjoy hearing their responses from the most are what advice the y would give to younger students who are beginning their sport, who their heroes are and what their future plans are LARRY at this time of LARSON their life. The f inal three weeks of this summer’s columns deal with those topics, beginning with the one on advice. As young people grow, they are faced with decisions on activities they might want to try. Whether it’s music, science, art, drama, sports or any other extracurricular activity, I highly urge them to gi ve things a chance and see if it is the right fit for them. Here are suggestions from student-athletes who are among the best in the area, if not the state, at their sport. Michela Paradiso, Upper Arlington, soccer and basketball: “I would encourage the need to make sure you take responsibility for yourself in the sport. You can’t blame other people, coaches, parents, referees or other players for your downfalls and losses. Remember that there is a lot of time to play soccer and you ha ve to keep the passion alive and keep teammates as the most important thing.” Austin Cuervo, St. Charles, golf: “I would tell a young athlete in my sport to have a good head. Golf is just about the least amount of strokes, not what strokes may or may not look like.” Chase Delande, Hilliard Davidson, football and wrestling: “Work hard at your sport. When it gets really tough, fight through it and keep going.” Napoleon Bell, Hartley, football and wr estling: “You will experience failure and defeat. The key thing is this: If the endeavor was a defeat, it was also a learning experience. It does not make you a failure.” Jake Blankenship, Gahanna, pole vault: “No matter what happens, make sure you give it your all and don’ t quit. Pole vaulting is not an easy sport, but when you become successful, you learn you can do anything.” Mary W ells, Westerville Central, bowling: “Try the sport because you lik e it and not because someone else wants you to try it. If you are not sure whether you will enjoy the activity, make sure you at least give it a try.” Faith Washington, Reynoldsburg, track: “I would tell a young person beginning running to stay hydrated and always, always listen to what your body is trying to tell you during your

Darts roll to sweep at GCSL meet By PAUL BATTERSON

ThisWeek Community Newspapers

By Lorrie Cecil/ThisWeek

Olympic’s Alex Washburn, 10, cools off by splashing water from her swim cap during the GCSL meet.

Having to report to the Delaware Darts swimming practice at 7 a.m. f ive days a week this summer , Brooke Glesenkamp hasn’t had many opportunities to sleep in this summer. But after the Darts swept the junior and senior titles at the Greater Columb us Swim League championships July 22-26 at the Plain Township pool, she said the early morning practices paid off. “I get up early and do this because I love doing it,” said Glesenkamp, who competed in the girls 11-12 age group. “Sometimes I have to miss doing things with my other school friends, but I think getting the championship made it all worth it.” The Darts won the combined championship with a total of 3,121.5 points, finishing ahead of the Northwest Tigersharks (2,388.5), the Highland Otters (2,123.5), the Worthington Waves (1,979.5), the Westerville Jaycee Poolcats (1,687.5), Olympic (1,632), the Plain Township Gators (1,180.5) and the Gahanna Sea Lions (960). Delaware captured its third consecutive junior title in the 6-and-under, 7-8 and 9-10 age groups, scoring 1,357 points to finish ahead of Olympic (854.5), Highland (825.5), Westerville (799.5), Worthington (737.5), Northwest (720.5), Plain Township (580.5) and Gahanna (397). The Darts won the senior di vision, which consisted of the 11-12, 13-14 and 15-18 age groups, for

the first time since 2004. Delaware compiled 1,764.5 points to finish ahead of Northwest (1,668), Highland (1,298), Worthington (1,242), Westerville (888), Olympic (777.5), Plain Township (600) and Gahanna (563). “This is the first time in our 33 years both the juniors and the seniors won the league meet,” said Darts coach Bill Rietz, who also coaches the Dela ware Hayes High School swimming and diving teams. “I told the kids, ‘Just because we won all (five of) the dual meets doesn’t mean we’re going to win the whole ball of wax.’” Glesenkamp seemed to take Rietz’s message to heart, as she placed first in the 50-meter backstroke (33.68 seconds), 50 freestyle (29.58) and 100 individual medley (1:13.65) and teamed with Ally Braun, Kristen Puthoff and Marissa Sulek to win the 200 free relay (2:06.28). All four times were team records. Others winners for Dela ware in the senior di vision were Regan Dewitt in the 50 back (32.45) and Dewitt, Kara Miller, Allyson Fomich and Samantha Curtin in the 200 medle y relay (2:12.44) and 200 free relay (1:56.62) in girls 13-14, Remy Curtin in the 50 breaststroke (41.04) and Curtin, Craig Klumpp, Mitchell Garnett and Connor Derstine in the 200 medley relay (2:37.24) in boys 11-12, Brittany Puthoff in the 100 breast (1:16.77) in girls 15-18 and Colby Brothers, Skyler Pollock, Keanan Fomich and Andrew See GCSL, page B3

Top Individual Performances: No. 2

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

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 w ould do, and he scored in 14 of those 16 events.” Perhaps his greatest feat as a prep athlete occurred in the 1998 Di vision 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 week end full of accomplishments, there was a disappointment that is just as memorable See LARSON, page B2 to Wilson: He had to settle for sev-

enth place in the 200. Although athletes now receive two points for finishing seventh and one point for eighth in an e vent, a different point system w as in place at that time in which no points were given for seventh or eighth. The three titles he won that weekend gave North 30 points and a cochampionship in Division I with Brunswick. “The interesting thing is that what I remember most about it is the lesson I learned,” Wilson said. “The 200 was my last event and was definitely my weakest 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 watched the replay on the screen that someone was able to pass me right at the end. That extra point I didn’ t get w as what I By Mike Munden/The Columbus Dispatch remember the most because my team didn’t win the (outright champi- 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 onship).” of the state title with Brunswick.

Counting down to No. 1 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

Continued from page B1 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 Division 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 (237 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 Cavin, who was North’s coach in 1998 and currently serves as an assistant football and track coach at New 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 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

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 with her 29-point performance in a 51-35 win over Wadsworth. 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 state-ranked London in the second round of the Division II district tournament. Watkins Memorial was just 1-19 entering the matchup but got 57

110 hurdles in 2003. He also was 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 was 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 know 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 fans 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 away from it, the more you realize what a big deal it was, 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 have eluded him, but he’s been able to run at the highest levels. He loves the hurdles and he really

points from Johnson, who made 19 of 34 from floor, including eight 3-pointers, and was 11-for-15 from the freethrow 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 159 victory over Solon at Fawcett Stadium in Canton with an interception with less than a minute remaining. 4. COURTNEY SMITH, Hilliard Davidson 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 4-1 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.

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.

Belle’s Bread will replace Crescent Bakery in the Kenny Center. Takashi Takenaka, who also owns Akai Hana and Tensuke Market in the center, said Etiquette expert Nora Cline his new Japanese café is slated to open in October.
