Former Scotts division

City trying to lure Everiss with tax breaks By JENNIFER NOBLIT

ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Dublin officials are trying to attract a former Scotts Miracle-Gro division. Dublin City Council on Aug. 1 heard the first reading of a $44,000 incentive package that could convince Everris to

open in Dublin. Economic de velopment manager Colleen Gilger said the Scotts division was sold to an Israel-based company that specializes in fertilizer and chemicals. “They needed a new location,” she said, adding that Scotts had set a dead-

line for the division to move out of its Marysville office by year’s end. Everris would develop plant-nutrition products, according to the staff report to council. The economic development agreement before council includes a six-year, 15-percent performance incentive on

income-tax withholdings collected by the city, capped at $37,000. According to the agreement, the company could collect up to $37,000 of income tax paid into the city over six years. In turn, the company must retain 20 jobs and create 10 new jobs in Dublin by the end of 2017.

The company also would have an opportunity to receive a $7,000 bonus performance payment in 2018 for a threeyear extension on its lease in Dublin, Gilger said. She said the company is considering See COUNCIL, page A2

A path along Brand Road that w ould stretch from Dublin Road to Muirfield Drive is a step closer to reality. After months of debate and public input,Dublin City Council on Aug. 1 moved to approve the $1.2million trail that would be for pedestrians and bicyclists. No bike lanes, however, would be installed on Brand. Some sort of trail along Brand Road initially was part of the capital improvement plan in 2008, and city manager Marsha Grigsby said money has been budgeted for the work. City staff members brought options to council in March, with a leisure trail separate from a bike lane. Since then, staff members have been working with residents to gauge public opinion. One option that would have provided for the future installation of bike lanes on Brand Road was removed from discussion. Council voted unanimously to not leave space to widen Brand Road for bike lanes, meaning the only path w ould be constructed off-road — for bikes and pedestrians. Staff members recommended building an east and west portion of leisure trails from Muirf ield Drive to Bristol Parkway and from Brandonway Drive to Dublin Road. According to city engineer Paul Hammersmith, cyclists and pedestrians could co ver ground between Bristol and Brandonway by using existing leisure trails on Earlington and Brandonway drives, traveling through neighborhoods south of Brand. Brand Road residents who were at the meeting voiced support for omitting bike lanes and for the staff recommendation. “We’ve heard about this project since 2008. My wife and I have lost lots of sleep over this,” Brand See BRAND ROAD TRAIL, page A2

Kilts are required attire for the Highland Heavy Weight Games. The games event will make its inaugural appearance at the Dublin Irish Festival on Saturday, Aug. 6, in the greenfields sports area. “What they’ll do is an athletics showcase of throwing weights of var-

ious sizes: putting, pushing, throwing, hurling and tossing weights of various sizes,” events administrator Mary Jo DiSalvo said. Brian Huntley, a member of the Great Lakes Scottish Athletes Association, is organizing the games at the Dublin Irish Festival and said more

than 30 athletes would compete. “We have four different classes: the amateur A’s, which are higher-skilled athletes; amateur B, which is a novice class; the master class is for athletes over 40; and there’s a woman’s class,” he said. Huntley said athletes compete in all of the events: braemar stone, weight over bar, open stone, sheaf toss, heavy weight for distance, caber toss and

light weight for distance. “We have a lot of guys with track and field backgrounds,” Huntley said. “The stones especially lends itself to a shot-put event.

The 150th anniversary of the Civil War won’t go unnoticed at this year’s Dublin Irish Festival. Historian and musician David Kincaid will perform Civil War songs of the Irish Brigade onAug. 6 and 7 and will share some history in honor of the anniversary. “We are at the Irish festival, observing in the area where they have Irish music archives and, in the cultural area, the 150th anniversary of the Civil War,” events administrator Mary Jo DiSalvo said. “David Kincaid is returning to perform Civil War songs of the Irish.” Kincaid is no stranger to the Dublin Irish Festival or other Celtic celebrations across the world. “I’ve been doing this particular presentation since 1998,” he said, adding that his first album with Irish songs from the Civil War came out the same year. “I do a lot of Irish and Celtic festivals, historic sites, folk-music societies, historical societies, libraries and performing-arts libraries. One of the things about this year with the

Council using incentive to lure business to city Continued from page A1 “two or three flex buildings in Dublin.” According to the staff report, Dublin expects to generate about $374,978 in income-tax withholdings from Everris over the term of the incentive agreement. A vote on the agreement is expected Aug. 22. Council on Aug. 1 also tried a ne w

meeting format. Mayor Tim Lecklider said the change would include a consent agenda with firstreading ordinances and resolutions. “It’s housekeeping Tim Lecklider matters — things not normally discussed among (council) members, things likely to have no dis-

cussion,” he said. All items on the consent agenda will not be read separately and will be approved with one vote. Ordinances in their second and final reading will not be on the consent agenda and could require a public hearing, legal director Stephen Smith said. Council members may pull any item from the consent agenda for discussion, Lecklider said.

Brand Road trail approved Continued from page A1 Road resident Neal Hahn said. Several council members, however, questioned the reasoning for not installing the middle segment, saying it seemed senseless to send pedestrians and cyclists through neighborhoods in lieu of staying on a straight path. “I thought we were looking for connectivity,” council member Richard Gerber said. “It’s a difficult segment to locate,” Hammersmith said, explaining that such constraints as vegetation and flooding concerns would have to be considered. “We could do the end segments and work on the middle in the future.” Working on the end segments first, Hammersmith said, could

help expedite the process. Marilee Chinnici-Zuercher asked Hammersmith if he would recommend building a middle segment eventually. “That’s up to you at a policy level,” he said. “It’ s recommended that we not move forward on plans and acquisition (for the middle segment) right now.” Council member Michael Keenan first moved to accept the staff recommendation to build the east and west segments of the Brand Road leisure trail, at a cost of $978,750. The motion died in a tied vote. Cathy Boring, Mayor Tim Lecklider and Keenan were in favor, but Gerber, Vice Mayor Amy Salay and Chinnici-Zuercher dissented.

BriHi Square hosts public artwork By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers

BriHi Square welcomed another new addition last week. Statesman of the Plains, a bronze statue by artist Allan Houser, was installed on the plaza as part of the agreement between the city and developer Stonehenge in the public-private partnership that developed the Historic Dublin mixed-use development. “Back in 2008, when the city and Stonehenge executed a development agreement, one stipulation of the agreement was that Stonehenge would make an annual contribution for the purchase, display and maintenance of public art to be placed in the public plaza in BriHi Square,” senior project manager Sara Ott said. The art will be on display in BriHi Square for two years, she said. “For this artwork, a private collector and Stonehenge approached staff with this sculpture in mind,” Ott said. The artwork comes from a private collection and was created in 1988 by Houser.

“It’s from the private collection of a close friend, and he has agreed to lend it for public view as part of this project for two years,” said Mo Dioun, president of Stonehenge Co. According to, the artist’s parents were members of the Chiricahua Apache tribe, and Allan’s father, Sam, was among a group of Warm Springs Chiricahua Indians to surrender to the U.S. Army in 1886. Born in 1914, Houser grew up on an Oklahoma farm and began his art with drawings and carvings. Houser taught art at the InterMountain Indian School and Institute of American Indian Arts before retiring to work on his art in 1975. After retirement, Houser created nearly 1,000 sculptures in stone, wood and bronze before his 1994 death. Ott said BriHi Square was built to suit such artwork as the Statesman piece. “We designed that space for the potential to have art in the future,” she said. “We put in the necessary electric and water conduits to have that option available

in the future.” Although the first public art to be installed in BriHi Square is on loan, Ott said, permanent art could be an option. “We’re just starting with this loan piece. It could be a potential place for a permanent installation or revolving art,” she said. “We have a lot of options for what could be there. It just shows how well art works there.” Dioun said the public artwork displayed in BriHi Square could come from collaboration among city leaders and staff. “It’s a good opportunity to display art in a corner of the wonderful historic district, or BriHi, as we call it,” Dioun said. “It will be a complete collaboration between the city leaders and staff and community leaders of what fits best. This was a wonderful piece that became available, and I thought it would be a wonderful piece for not just Dublin, but central Ohio residents to appreciate. It’s a magnificent piece and very worthy of being displayed here.”

Civil War,” he said. “This is very real history. I didn’t write these songs; they were written by people of the era. It’s a very crucial part of Irish American history that’s been swept under the rug.” Kincaid said people often ponder the connection between the Irish and the Civil War before hearing his performance. “People approach me at every Irish festival with stunned faces and say, ‘What are you doing here? How are the Irish involved?’A lot of people don’t know 200,000 Irish fought,” he said. “They would go into battle with the U.S. flag and a green flag with the harp of Erin to make sure they were recognized by their friends and their enemies. And they were.” Kincaid is set to perform at 4 p.m. Aug. 6 and at 2 and 6 p.m. Aug. 7 in the Irish Traditions tent. The Ward Irish Music Archives also will celebrate the Civil War’s 150th anniversary at the festival with the 2011 traveling exhibit, “When Johnny Comes Marching Home.” The exhibit explores the role the Irish had in the Civil War.

As it were

Early ‘lady journalist’ was a newsroom-savvy editor the office of their newspaper and shot dead the editor of a competing paper in broad daylight. The ED brothers went to jail, but the LENTZ 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. Writing in 1911, she remembered her early career. “In the autumn of 1898, it became evident that a woman editor was needed on the staff of the Ohio State Journal, and the writer was invited to take that responsible position, with duties of the most varied description including many which have since been specialized into separate departments. Having the usual feminine distaste for monotony, I had no complaint to make of assignments which covered art exhibitions, concerts, lectures…and all organizations for the women, of the women, by the women, for the women. “The Federation of Women’s Clubs moved upon Ohio just then, and a skillful and never tiring promoter of that body lived in Columbus, who cajoled, coerced and compelled nearly every woman who could read and write into clubs of one sort or another, all of whose meetings must be announced aforehand and praised afterwards. “A very successful feature of the woman’s page was a daily menu, compiled from recipes signed by well-known Columbus women; a daily fashion plate appeared (against the remonstrance of this particular woman, who thought it beneath the dignity of the Journal). Also, for some inscrutable reason, marriage licenses and burial permits were printed in her department.

Commentary & opinion

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 — but there are not many. Most of the professions, trades and occupations in our society are practiced by women as well as men. 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 many 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 work 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 was 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 newspapers. 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

August 4, 2011

“Mr. Mosgrove was the editor under whom I worked, and I extend many thanks for his clear intent and definite directions as to newspaper technicalities…” Ms. Hinman went on to describe her days in the newsroom. “Newspaper work taught me how to boil down and condense in a way that has proved invaluable when I have been asked to aid in correcting and revising a manuscript for publication. “Never have I forgotten the constant injunction, ‘Be brief, be brief, and evermore be brief.’ And my natural feminine tendency to carefully conceal the meaning under many words has been effectively curbed. “As the only woman in the office, I learned to sharpen my own pencils, to suppress sarcasm, to cultivate humor, to dress with neatness and severity, to omit slang from my vocabulary and not to mind tobacco smoke. “Thus may one command the trust and confidence of one’s fellow-workers of the sterner sex.” Elise Fitch Hinman in her time was one of the best known women in Columbus. When she died in 1921, she was remembered in a publication of her alma mater, Ohio State University. “HINMAN, Elise Fitch Hinman, ex-’82, died at her home in Columbus, December 18, following a short illness. Mrs. Hinman was prominent in many philanthropic orders in Columbus, and was especially active during the years of the war (World War I) when she worked unceasingly with the Junior Red Cross. She was one of the first women students to attend the university. “Mrs. Hinman leaves no survivors. She is the last of her family, one well-known in the early history and settlement of Columbus. A sister’s death about four years ago left her alone out of a family of three children.” Elise Fitch Hinman was one of the first woman journalists in the capital city. And she remains one of the best.

Emergency vehicles big and small will be on display Aug. 13 in Dublin., a forum for emergency-vehicle model builders, will hold its third annual showcase at the Embassy Suites Hotel. Columbus resident Joe O’Brien is organizing the event and has been building models for 30 years. The showcase, which is free and open to the public, will feature models of fire trucks, police cars and ambulances. “A lot of guys build from scratch, from plastic and metal they cast trucks out of,” O’Brien said. “Others take existing models or die-cast models apart and build something new. We’re ex-

built.” Some of the models displayed next weekend will be from locals. “It’s really a show that’s open to the public, with a good display of fire trucks and ambulances,” O’Brien said. “For kids, there’s a lot of wow factor, but you’d be surprised that it’s not just kids who have the wow factor. People have built fire trucks from Washington Township, … Norwich Township and Columbus. There are local fire trucks.” The Internet made forums such as possible to help connect people with common interests. O’Brien said he has been involved with the forum for four years and uses it to show off his work and trade ideas. “This is kind of the genera-

The convention previously has been in Los Angeles County, Calif., and Meriden, Conn. “I offered to bring it to the

Indiana, Wisconsin and Virginia,” O’Brien said. “But we’ve done enough advertising that people are coming from Germany, Canada, California and Arizona.” While longtime model builders will get an opportunity to display their work and check out the labor of others, demonstrations will be offered for those interested in getting into the hobby. “We’ll have demonstrations on showing how other modelers

The hobby could have a lot of good lessons for children, O’Brien said. “A big thing about it is that it’s true handcrafted models being built,” he said. “We’re always trying to keep young people interested in it because it shows them how to engineer and design things.” If the models aren’t enough,

O’Kelly: Booking festival acts a collective effort By JIM FISCHER ThisWeek Community Newspapers

As chair of the entertainment committee for the Dublin Irish festival, Morton O’Kelly has an enviable task. The festival’s growth, popularity and reputation have made it a highly desirable venue to play, not only for local and regional acts but also for international touring acts. The Young Dubliners’Keith Roberts told ThisWeek, “It’s one of the

top five festivals if not the top festival” his band has played. O’Kelly said booking the various entertainment stages — seven in all — is a collective effort among the committee’s members, each of whom brings an expertise in traditional Irish music, Celtic rock, dance, pipe bands and the like. “There is a lot of wonderful talent,” O’Kelly said. “It’s a tough job to narrow it down. And there is a clamor from some bands now to get in.”

That said, the festival’s expansive site and scope allow for a full and varied entertainment experience. O’Kelly said the committee is always looking to bring back festival favorites like Gaelic Storm but also introducing new artists and acts who bring something a little unexpected, citing The Step Crew and Moya Brennan as acts who were well-received in recent years and have been brought back. A few acts will make their Dublin

Irish Festival debuts this year, as well, including County Antrim’s Beoga, a traditional outfit with elements of jazz and vaudeville, amped-up traditionalists The Elders, Goitse and The Fuschia Band. Personally, O’Kelly said, he is a traditionalist at heart — a big fan of Dervish, which returns this year for sets Saturday and Sunday on the Dublin stage. He said he would check out composer/fiddler Liz Carroll. “She’s generally recognized as a ge-

nius,” he said. In fact, it’s often the smaller acts — solo artists and duos — that capture the hearts and ears or “hardcore traditional purists.” He said the festival has “raised the bar” for local and regional acts who are playing in front of audiences they hope to see again and again, and in front of other artists, as well.

Young Dubliners sees Irish festival as opportunity to shine By JIM FISCHER ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Young Dubliners will come to the Dublin Irish Festival in the middle of a jam-packed summer of shows, a season spent on the road. Founder and frontman Keith Roberts likes it that way. “I was reading a magazine that called (a certain band) road war-

riors for doing 120 shows last year,” Roberts told ThisWeek. “That seems like a slow year to me. Even when we’re doing an album, and we’re in the studio and spending less time on the road, we’re still out more than 99 percent of bands.” For more than 20 years, Roberts’ traveling band has been making hay with its live show, a high-energy evening of rock

music and the occasional folk song. “We’re a songwriting, rock ’n’ roll band made up of Irish and Americans, so the music reflects both cultures,” Roberts said. “We’re influenced by our cultures, but over the years we’ve worked at blending the two together without seeming to jam the two together.” In fact, it’s that ongoing cre-

ative expression that keeps The Young Dubliners going, both figuratively and literally. “You make a new album (the band’s latest is last year’s Saints and Sinners), and you’re excited to share it with people so you go on these humongous tours. But after a while, you have the need to be creative,” he said. “The albums we’ve made, we’re proud of every one. And we’ve been get-

ting better; lyrically and musically, we’re more mature. “We see all of this as part of our legacy.” Which is not to say Roberts is looking too far down the road, despite that he fully recognizes his band’s name is not wholly an apt descriptor these days. “When we started, we (Roberts and co-founder Paul O’Toole, no longer with the band) were a cou-

ple of young lads from Dublin, playing in L.A. I didn’t know we were still going to be doing this in 2011,” he said, adding for comedic effect, “But it’s on Wikipedia now. Besides, Fine Young Cannibals never actually ate anyone.” Roberts said the band would take the fact that they have two See BAND, page A7

For one of the sets, they will play all of the songs from their 2007 release,With All Due Respect — The Irish Sessions, a collection of traditional songs the band had peppered into its live show over the years. “We have always used these songs in our set,so we wanted to have a CD that put them all in one place for our fans,” Roberts said. “But we’ve never played them all together. So we though what better pulpit to try out all our traditional songs than in the namesake city of my hometown.” He said they likely would conclude the set with original tunes, and the other festival set would be a more standard representation of The Young Dubliners. He concluded with a jok e, in Irish fashion. “If you’ll pardon, if we’re going to (mess) it up, (mess) it up in

Highland weight are feats of strength By JENNIFER NOBLIT ThisWeek Community Newspapers The Highland Heavy Weight Games event will make its first appearance at the Dublin Irish Festival on Aug. 6. Organized by Brian Huntley of the Great Lakes Scottish Athletes Association, the competition will follow the usual games of Highland sports contests across the globe. According to Huntley, Highland games have nine different events, and seven will be featured during competition from 11

a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Aug. 6. The events are as follows: • Caber toss-along: A tapered pole or log is hoisted upright by the competitor, who balances it vertically, holding the smaller end. The competitor runs forward, tossing the log so it turns end over end. If the larger end strikes the ground first and then the smaller end, it is called “turning the caber.” Competitors are judged on how closely the throw approximates “the ideal 12-o’clock toss on an imaginary clock.” According to the GLSAA, cabers for men’s competitions could range from 16

to 22 feet long and weigh 70 to 145 pounds. For women, the caber typically is 10 to 16 feet long and weighs 40 to 100 pounds. • Stone put: This event is similar to today’s shot put, but instead of a steel shot, a large stone of variable weight is used. In the braemar stone competition, a 20- to 26-pound stone is used for men and a 13- to 18-pound stone for women. Athletes are not allowed to run before throwing the stone. • Open stone: The competition uses a 16- to 22-pound stone for men and 8- to 12-pound stone for women, and any

throwing style is allowed, providing the stone is in one hand and is cradled in the neck until it is released. • Weight throw for distance: This event uses a 28-pound weight for men and 14-pound weight for women in the light event, and a 56-pound weight for men and 42-pound weight for women in the heavy contest. The metal weights are thrown using one hand, and the longest throw wins. • Weight over the bar: In this competition, athletes try to toss a 56-pound weight with an attached handle over a

horizontal bar, using one hand. The bar is moved during the competition, and each athlete gets three attempts at each height. If an athlete gets the weight over the bar, he could advance to the next round at a greater height. • Sheaf toss: A 20-pound bundle of straw in a burlap sack — the sheaf — is tossed vertically with a pitchfork over a raised bar. Each athlete gets three tries to get the sheaf over the bar, and if successful, he or she moves on to the next round with the bar raised. A 10-pound sheaf is used for women.

Celtic sports bring Highland games to festival Continued from page A1 distance is like the discus. A similar spin is done with heavy weights. Some of the other stuff is just based on a bunch of strong Irish and Scottish farmers saying, ‘I can throw further and lift more than you can.’” Huntley became involved with Highland games and the Great Lakes Scottish Athletes Association three years ago, after seeing his father participate in games in Washington. The group competes in backyard games and some festivals, including the Reynoldsburg Tartan Days.

According to Huntley, the Highland games are about camaraderie, family and a bit of competitiveness, although never in a bad spirit. “Competitiveness lends itself to a negative connotation sometimes,” he said. “We’re pushing each other to do better and throw further than I did. I truly feel like most of these people are my family. They’re such nice people. It’s a very family-oriented event.”

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.

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.

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.

Field of Honor event seeking volunteers, sponsors By JENNIFER NOBLIT

ThisWeek Community Newspapers

About 400 volunteers will help with the Field of Honor that will feature 3,000 flags set up to honor the 10th anniversary of 9-11. The Sept. 10-12 event, initiated by the Dublin AM Rotary, is supported by the city, Washington Township and Dublin City Schools. Organizers also hope for the support of the community. “We anticipate utilizing about 400 volunteers, and the reason we’re so excited about this is, whenever we involve the community, in terms of planning as well as serving and doing the work, it’s even sweeter,” Dublin volunteer coordinator Christine Nardecchia said. “People feel helpless in ways to commemorate this. Now we can all come together with the spirit we had on Sept. 12, (2001).” Dublin AM Rotary president Dave Connelly brought the idea before Dublin and Washington Township for support, and the school district is providing land. Thus far, Connelly said, the re-

sponse has been good. “We’ve had a ton of outpouring for folks wanting to help. A lot of help will be needed the week of and the weekend of (the Field of Honor),” he said. According to Nardecchia,volunteers will be needed to help set up the flags, watch the flags throughout the weekend and fold flags at the end of the event. “We will be utilizing energized volunteers to help with flag assembly. We have a massive team from Cardinal Health that has stepped forward to … get (steel) pounded into the ground (for the flags),” she said. “Then we’ll have field hosts throughout the weekend to be on hand for when people come to visit the site. The flags

need to be accompanied 24/7,so we need field hosts around the clock. “We already have a group to camp Saturday night, but we’re looking for a group for Sunday night and looking for people Monday night to be there with us to properly fold flags for pickup,” Nardecchia said. One group has committed to finding a bagpiper to walk the Field of Honor every hour on the hour, Nardecchia said. “I don’t think people will realize how emotional a visit to this field will be. It is powerful to have these flags set up in a straight line, like the Arlington setup,” she said. “People are so proud to come out of the woodwork to do this. Every hour, a bagpiper will walk the perimeter of the flags and play a tune of reverence to those we lost.” Sponsors and people to buy flags also are needed. “Folks can buy flags from the website, and there’s also a blog we’ve started on the website, which is basically a ‘Where were

Workshops offered for owners of older homes By KEVIN PARKS

ThisWeek Community Newspapers

No house stays pristine for long. Wood rots. Foundations subside. Paint peels. Metal rusts. Shingles slide. Many other unpleasant and potentially expensive things can go wrong with the parts and pieces of a house. At the half-century mark,even the best-built home is going to show its age and require some tender, loving care. Because much of the local housing stock falls into that category or is e ven considerably older, the Columbus Landmarks Foundation has embarked on a local preservation initiative. The next in a series of “Old House DIY Workshops 2011” will be held on Saturday, Aug. 13, at the Community Properties of Ohio training facility, 933 E. Gay St. For $5, owners of older homes may attend a session from 9 to 11 a.m. to find out how to identify and resolve common maintenance issues. The fee for a session on wood restoration that afternoon from 1 to 5 costs $10. During the

latter hands-on workshop, attendees will learn how to stabilize rotted wood, use wood consolidants and epoxies and prepare restored wood for painting. The workshops, titled “Nuts and Bolts: the Basics of Home Maintenance,” are being put on with funding received from the United Way 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 turnof-the-century home for this to be applicable.” A home doesn’t 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. The workshops encourage par-

ticipants, whether tackling repair and restoration projects themselves or hiring someone,to bring that same attention to craftsmanship, rather than just doing someYOUR CHILD can thing cosmetic, she added. “It’s kind of demystifying the process and making it more manAn online public school powered by K12 can ageable,” Kane said. “And at the unlock your child’s academic potential. same time, through that educa Tuition free tional process, people will learn  Individualized Learning Plans more about the process and more about themselves, so they can learn  State-licensed teachers if it’s something they want to take This fall, choose a school that fits your child. on themselves or if they want to hire a professional.” Enrollments are now being accepted. The presentations include pointers on finding the right contractor. “It’s about getting multiple VISIT: 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.

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 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 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 they choose to compete in a third preseason game, schools may charge 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 they 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 final 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 give 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 have 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 wrestling: “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 Wells, Westerville Central, bowling: “Try the sport because you like 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

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 110meter 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 to settle for seventh place in the 200. Although athletes now receive

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

two points for finishing seventh and one point for eighth in an event, a different point system was in place at that time in which no points were given for seventh or

with her 29-point performance in a 5135 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 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

eighth. The three titles he won that weekend gave North 30 points and a co-championship in Division I with Brunswick.

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.

“The interesting thing is that I had chosen to run the 200 inwhat I remember most about it is stead of the (1,600 relay) that year the lesson I learned,” Wilson said. and I remember I got seventh be“The 200 was my last event and was definitely my weakest event. See WILSON, page C2

Junior Tennis

Area team captures Midwest championship 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-foot-2 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 See LARSON, page C2 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 eight-team 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-and-unders, but sometimes we ran into teams who had really good 10-and-unders and it’d be the 18-andunders that came through. Other times, the 18-and-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 1213, 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) See TENNIS, page C2

cal 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 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.”

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. Perennial playoff contender Eastmoor Academy and defending Division IV state champion Hartley will meet in the opening scrimmage for both teams Aug. 13 at Hartley. The matchup of East-side schools is one that Warriors coach Jim Miranda looks forward to because of the toughness that his team will get to face as it pre-

“The f irst scrimmage is against somebody other than ourselves and it’s when you’re going to see real speed for the first time,” Wiggins said. “We know we’re going to see kids with good size and good athleticism, and we’re looking to see how physical we are and how well we’ve learned our assignments.”

WILSON Continued from page C1

cause I didn’t run all the w ay 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 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 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 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 Cutline: The Ironbirds baseball team won the DYA Tournament championship. Team members scored. The 3,200 relay of Nathan are (first row, from left) Troy McConnaughey, Jonah Paoletti, Nate Smith, Mike Miralles, Marty Aichele, Jared Conley, Jason ConNeuhardt, Andy Yu; (second row, from left) Nick Harris, Lauren Erickson, Simon Joseph, Jack ley and Tyler Pensyl didn’t place.

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 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 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 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,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 kno wledgeable 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 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 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 loved Westerville North and loved coach Cavin and the support from the community.”
