Board lowers levy request to 5.9 mills By GARY BUDZAK ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Hilliard Board of Education unanimously approved placing a 5.9-mill operating levy on the November ballot during a special meeting on Aug. 1. The millage is lower than the 6.9-mill levy voters rejected in the May primary and what had been proposed by board

members this summer. The levy defeat resulted in the district making $3.9-million in cuts for the 2011-12 school year, including the loss of 51 positions and a reduction of hours in 247 other jobs. “We are asking for the lowest possible millage that will last three years and not impact the excellent education our students receive,” school board president Doug Maggied said in a statement be-

fore the vote. Treasurer Brian W. Wilson said that if approved, the levy would cost homeowners about $181 in additional property taxes per each $100,000 of home value. It is expected to raise $13.6 million annually and keep the district’s budget in the black through 2014-15. Wilson said he learned from the Franklin County Auditor’s office that

reappraisals of home values would see a 5-percent decrease instead of a projected 8-percent drop, allowing the district to ask for the lower 5.9-millage rate. “It is a request that is in line with comparable districts, and we submit it with a pledge not to seek new operating funds for at least three years if it passes in November,” Maggied said. According to Maggied, the district has

Ice cream subbed for soup Most “Empty Bowls” fundraising events offer soup in their bowls, but a Hilliard business is scooping out ice cream instead. Outside the Lines Creative Studio, 5236 Cemetery Road, will offer Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream at its “Empty Bowls” fundraiser from noon to 5 p.m. Aug. 14. “We decided to change it up because it’s August, and nobody wants soup in August,” said Outside the Lines founder and CEO Sheri Dilley. “We also thought that the ice cream tie-in was a lot more fun. It’s like an ice cream social.” “Helping to provide for the health and economic well-being of children and families here is an integral part of our core business practices,” said Jeni’s president and founder Jeni Britton Bauer. “We are grateful to be in a position to contribute to a worthy cause such as Empty Bowls.” Empty Bowls is a grassroots effort to fight hunger by using pottery or other crafts to make bowls. Guests make a cash donation and get to keep the bowl. Dilley said her employees and volunteers will have hand-thrown and hand-painted 400 bowls for the event, using donated supplies. The bowls are microwave-safe, but Dilley said they might be a bit delicate for the dishwasher. For $8, people select the bowl of their choice and have it filled with ice cream. Dilley said 100 percent of the proceeds will go to the Mid-Ohio Food Bank’s Operation Feed program. In addition, if people want to paint in the studio or buy a gift certificate, 20percent of those sales will go to the cause. “This is the first year we’re doing this,” said Dilley, who opened Outside the Lines in 2009. “I want to continue to do it, but you have to make it through the first one. If we only sell 50 bowls, and I’m stuck with 300-some bowls, I don’t know. “I don’t feel like that’s going to be the case,” she said. “I would really like this to become a tradition.” For more information, call (614) 527-7752 or visit

Worshippers pray at the Noor Islamic Cultural Center, 5001 Wilcox Road, on July 22. The center has stressed transparency since it was built.

The tragedy of Sept. 11, 2001, occurred as the Noor Islamic Cultural Center’s foundation was being poured. Construction of the $6-million, 32,000-square-foot, 401-parking-space facility on Wilcox Road was halted, and changes were made to add more windows and rooms for visitors. “We wanted a transparency,” said Khaled Farag, one of the Noor’s founders, who now volunteers at the center. “We wanted people to look in and feel more comfortable, because obviously there were a lot of questions at the time. “From day one, I felt that it was accepted,” Farag said of the facility. “During the building, the neighbors were very protective. We never had any vandalism or any issues. Ever since, we’ve started several programs of interaction with the community. We welcome all kind of tours, and we even have an Islam 101 class held every Saturday.” Islam 101 takes place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays at the Noor. It teaches the basic beliefs of Islam and its connection to Christianity and Judaism, and features a tour and a question-and-answer session. The course can even be given offsite. “People who take that class understand things why Muslims do and believe certain things,” Farag said. There’s a library full of Qurans and signs that explain Islam, but aside from two domes, the facility doesn’t look like a traditional mosque. Construction began in late 2000, and was completed in 2006. The facility was designed by Meacham and Apel Architects of Dublin. “Earlier in the design phase we looked at different mosques, and every country has a mosque that looks different,” Farag said. “We told them let’s do something American.” The Noor was built so that it faces Mecca for the Muslims who pray there five times a day or attend sermons on Fridays.

Chamber set for Taste of Hilliard, Business Expo By GARY BUDZAK ThisWeek Community Newspapers

It was so good the first time around, there will be another Taste of Hilliard & Business Expo. “It surpassed our expectations,” Libby Gierach, president/CEO of the Hilliard Area Chamber of Commerce, said of the event. “It’s going to be bigger and better.” Taste of Hilliard & Business Expo takes place 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Aug. 10 in the

Makoy Center. For $10, visitors can sample foods from 24 restaurants and learn more about 60 local businesses — all of them chamber members. “We want to promote our businesses that are chamber members, and this is one of the great ways to do that,” Gierach said. “Some join specifically to be a part of this event. They heard about it last year, they saw the value, and joined. There’s not even another kind of an event in Hilliard that has this kind of exposure for our business

community. Last year, we had over 700 people come through. I’m anticipating more this time.” Hilliard-based Credit Union of Ohio is again the presenting sponsor. “Hilliard is such a wonderful community, and it’s fun for us to get out and mix and mingle with our fellow chamber members a in the community,” said Kimberly Hudson, vice president of marketing for See TASTE OF HILLIARD, page A5

Teachers take classes during their summer break By GARY BUDZAK ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The summer break is a time for students to work or relax before heading back to school. Yet for many teachers in the Hilliard City School District, it’s a time to take classes themselves.

“We had classes all through the month of June,” said Linda Romano, director of professional development for the district. “It was a combination of technology and instructional best practices.” Romano said that changing times and technologies demand that teachers keep pace by taking

classes through her office and the district’s technology department. “The technology is changing rapidly, and it’s a struggle to keep up with it unless you commit to attending classes,” she said. “You’re going to be left behind and you won’t be as current as your students are.”

District spokeswoman Amanda Morris said the district offered 69 different Summer Academy courses for its teachers, with 757 teachers participating. Among the courses were 24 related to technology, with 422 teachers learning things like how to use iPads in the classroom.

“The days of getting your degree and then being done with it has been over for many years,” Romano said. “It’s so important for our teachers to stay cuttingedge on new developments, new research in the educational field, See TEACHERS, page A5

“Traditionally, when a mosque or prayer space is found, usually people are sitting cockeyed in some room,” Farag said. “In this case, we actually oriented the entire building towards Mecca. That’s why it’s not perpendicular or parallel to Wilcox.” Muslims pray for five minutes at a time in a large prayer hall, whose carpet has the same rows of lines running through two other separate rooms for people to prostrate themselves. There is another room for people to remove their shoes, and a room for ritual ablutions — washing hands, feet and face — before praying. Males pray on the first floor, females on the second floor. An audiovisual system allows people on both floors and the basement to see and hear the prayers. The prayers and sermons can draw as many as 600-1,200 Muslims at a time. Non-Muslims are invited to watch. “We have an open-door policy,” There’s no place like Farag said. “Most of the day, our home, when Amity doors are open — weekends and provides your care. evenings are e xtremely b usy.

I find them to be very warm and inviting, and anxious to find new uses and opportunities for the facility.” “It’s been a success story,” Farag said. “We have a prestigious neighborhood nearby, and it’s a mixed, diverse community — it’s not just Muslim people living there. It’s exactly as it was intended. We feel it added value to the neighborhood and vice versa. We have excellent neighbors.” This month will be a particularly busy time at the Noor, because it is the month of Ramadan

(Aug. 1-29, according to During Ramadan, Muslims will fast from sunrise to sundown, and there will be extra prayers in the center. “Ramadan is the holiest month,” Farag said. “It’s a month of reenergizing one’s spirit. Every year people anticipate Ramadan to clear their mind and their soul. There’s a different atmosphere in the whole community during that month. People don’t sleep much because they’re praying late. It’s exhaustive, yet it’s very spiritually fulfilling.” For more information, call the Noor at (614) 527-7777 or visit

Trustees accept chief’s resignation By GARY BUDZAK ThisWeek Community Newspapers In a 12-minute meeting on Aug. 1, the Norwich Township trustees approved “with regrets” the resignation of fire chief David Long. Long, who has worked for the Norwich Township Fire Department for 36 years, recently announced he will resign on Jan. 20,2012. During the meeting, trustees Chuck Buck, Mike Cope and Larry Earman unanimously approved the resignation, prompting Long to quip that they did that quickly, causing all in attendance to laugh. “You know, Chief, it is with regrets, and we’ll have more to say about it later on, ” Cope said between laughs. Also at the meeting,Long proposed the installation of a standalone automated teller machine (ATM) in the front section of the Safety Services Building. The ATM would be helpful for people paying police fines, posting bond or attending Mayor’s Court, it was said, and there would be no cost to the township for the ATM other than the electricity to operate it. The ATM would be owned by the Columbus Municipal Employees Federal Credit Union,whose members would not be charged a fee to use it. “It would be of benefit for our employees and the

court system,” Long said. “An ATM would be very convenient,” agreed police chief Doug Francis. The trustees said they had no objection to the ATM, but would need to look into it further. The trustees also approved the promotion of Tom Bolin to Lieutenant in the NTFD following the retirement of Larry Pennell. Road superintendent Steve Montgomery said daytime road closures on Schirtzinger Road began Aug. 1 to repair gas lines and preliminary drainage work. Local traffic can still use the road, he said. Everything is going according to plan and there have been no complaints, Montgomery said. Elsewhere, mill and fill road work has been done in the Timberbrook subdivision, but slurry sealing may take place in September. In response to calls he’s received, Buck said that the trustees have not spoken to the city of Hilliard about annexation of the unincorporated parts of the township. Hilliard’s recently-issued comprehensive plan made provisions for zoning potential areas the city could expand into over the next two decades. The trustees usually meet at 6:30 p.m. on the third Mondays of the month, but will not meet Aug. 15, since there will not be a quorum.The next Norwich Township trustee meeting is scheduled for noon Tuesday, Sept. 6.

Duckie Derby to benefit Patches of Light charity ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Friday, Aug. 7, is derby day in Hilliard: There’s the fourth annual Duckie Derby at 7 p.m. at the Hilliard Family Aquatic Center; and the Tidd Family Fishing Derby starts at 6 p.m. and continues through 8 a.m. Saturday at the lake in Municipal Park. The Duckie Derby is a fundraiser for the Hilliard-based charity Patches of Light, which assists families of critically ill children. It was originally scheduled for earlier in the summer, but was postponed because of the weather. The Duckie Derby started when the pool’s lazy river was opened, and has been a hit ever since. People write their names and phone numbers on the little plastic ducks, which are released and then float down the course. Around four minutes after they are released, the top ducks complete the course. Top prize is dinner for 25 at the Hilliard Rome Road Chipotle. “The kids and the adults totally get into their ducks racing,” said Mindy Atwood, the founder of Patches of Light. “They watch, trying to figure out where their duck is, they scream for ducks, and they just stand there glued waiting for you to call their name off.” Atwood said there will be a table for Patches of Light. They will be selling $5 gift cards for a special sale at Macy’s, and all the proceeds will go to Patches of Light. In addition, people can donate their extra school supplies to Patches of Light. Ducks cost $3, or $15 for a quack pack of five, and are available at either pool. At dusk, the movie ‘Despicable Me’will be shown in the park. Family activities include face painting, arts and crafts, group games, and contests. The Recreation and Parks department is collecting donations for the Hilliard Welfare Panty Food Bank. Those who bring a canned good will receive a raffle ticket.

Tidd Family Fishing Derby Also happening Friday is the Tidd Family Fishing Derby. Recreation supervisor Heather Ernst said the department oversees the overnight camping at Municipal Park, and handles the weigh-in, with prizes awarded for the biggest catches. However, the Tidd Funeral Home pays for the bass and catfish used to stock the lake behind the pool.

“We do that for the kids in the community,” said Rick Tidd, founder/president of Tidd Funeral Home. “It’s a nice thing for them to do, to go over there and fish with their dad or mom,or both, or grandparents, without traveling a distance, like going down to the rivers. The kids in the community, they look forward to it.” Tidd said his grandchildren may be among this year’s participants.

Do Yo Kasas u a?

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

riage licenses and burial permits were printed in her department. “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 Courtesy of Columbus Metropolitan Library in correcting and reElise Fitch Hinman c. 1911 vising a manuscript for publication. incident reminded people just “Never have I forgotten the how seriously newspaper peoconstant injunction, ‘Be brief, ple took their jobs.

how 21st-century students and they’re learning needs are different. It is so important for a teacher to stay current on best practices and continue to refine his or her teaching and better adjust to the needs of our students.” Romano said the district didn’t offer any in-house teacher courses in July, but she said some teachers take graduate courses and attend conferences they pay for themselves during the month. This week (Aug. 1-5), there is a statewide conference called “Ohio Innovative Learning Environments” being held at Hilliard Bradley High School. The district partnered with the Ohio Department of Education, the Educational Service Center of Central Ohio, and the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development to put on the event. The conference features international keynote speakers (paid for through a Race to the Top grant) and breakout sessions. “They’re talking about how they’re addressing the complex nature of their school systems, sharing teaching strategies, ways they are continuing to learn and grow, using technology and trying to be innovative and best meet the needs of their students,” Romano said. “They’re sharing ways that they’ve been successful and some of the things that are still presenting a challenge to them.” Romano said every principal in the district will attend at least two days of the conference, and they will bring a team of teachers with them. Afterward, the principals will meet with school administrators about how to use what they’ve learned and include it in their plan for the school year.

Credit Union of Ohio. Hudson said an added bonus of the expo is the Taste of Hilliard. “Food is always a fun way to get together with people,” Hudson said. “That’s why Taste of Hilliard is a great event for us, and we’re really excited to be the presenting sponsor again.” Among the returning restaurants is the Olive Tree Mediterranean Café, which will likely serve its popular hummus again. “I think they did a fantastic job putting it together last year for the first year, and attendance was great,” said owner Tammy Mor. “We had an immediate response to the restaurant. We had people coming in the next day, and for weeks to come, because they had visited our booth at the Taste of Hilliard, loved what they tasted, and definitely wanted to come back for more. It definitely had a positive impact on driving traffic to the restaurant.”

for additional dollars in order to sustain the current level of educational services,” Maggied said. “No frills, no new programs – just a pledge to maintain what we’ve got and to retain our teacher corps that has served the children so well.” After a couple of residents commented on the amount of the millage, Maggied moved that the levy be placed on the ballot. The motion was seconded by board member Paul Lambert, who said the 5.9-mill rate was acceptable. “We’ve been looking at these scenarios the last three months,” said board member Andy Teater.

“I’m glad we’re coming back lower.” The other board members also weighed in before the vote. Dave Lundregan said he was a banker, and was optimistic about the economy. Lisa Whiting said everyone she’s talked to was appreciative of a lower levy amount. However, she said she preferred the 5.9-mills over a three-year period to a $3.9-mill levy over two years that was proposed earlier by Mike Harrold, chairman of ForHilliardKids, an organization which opposed the May levy. The board members again praised the teachers and school employees, whose unions agreed in

June to pay freezes and paying more health insurance costs. Those concessions will save the district more than $9.6 million over the next three years. It also allowed for the reinstatement of fall sports for middle- school students and gifted programs for elementary students, which the district had initially cut after the May levy defeat. The board will vote on Monday, Aug. 8, to send the levy request to the Franklin County Board of Elections to put on the ballot before the Aug. 10 filing deadline. “I do believe our district is at risk if we don’t pass this,” Maggied said. “There will be a whole lot more cuts.”

Volunteers learn new tricks for potential pets By GARY BUDZAK

sistently hearing the same things and being expected to have the same behaviors.” Volunteers can visit the society’s website to view the dogwalking schedule to see when help is needed. Then there’s socializing with a rabbit, or, as Hiser calls it, rabbit recess. The volunteer will set up a large pen so the rabbit can jump and scamper around and dart through a tunnel. The volunteer sits in the pen with the rabbit. “The people who do that have a great time,” Hiser said. “Most house rabbits do not like to be held, but they like to be near their person, nuzzle them and take food from their hand. It doesn’t like to be picked up, but enjoys calm, quiet companionship.” Cats are cuddled, talked to and played with on a daily basis to be

People who become volunteers for the Capital Area Humane Society (CAHS) will learn how to walk a dog, socialize with a rabbit and calm a cat. “We have nine different ways that people can volunteer,” said volunteer programs manager Jessica Kendro. “There’s hands-on jobs with the animals, or there’s folding laundry, sorting donations. A lot of people don’t want to work with the animals — it’s too hard emotionally or they have a physical handicap that doesn’t allow them to do that.” For the hands-on types, among the needs are for dog-walkers. “We require that people take a dog-walking class,” said development manager Mary Hiser. “These dogs get walked four times a day by multiple people. We want everybody using the same language, etiquette and protocol with the dogs, so if you say wait, I don’t say stop. The dog’s con-

socialized and de-stressed, Hiser said. Charts are kept so all the cats get the same treatment. Despite this, some felines remain aloof enough to be a companion animal, but not a lap kitty. Anyone age 12 or older can volunteer. “The only common denominator is people who absolutely love animals,” Hiser said. Among the volunteers is Gayle Farina of Hilliard. “I’ll be there six years the end of August,” Farina said. “The primary thing I do is walk the dogs first thing in the morning, and get them out for their potty breaks. The other thing I do at the shelter is make frozen Kongs (peanut butter treats in a rubber toy).” Farina said she’s at the shelter six days a week. “This is something I really love

doing,” she said. “It’s fun and very rewarding. The (pets) absolutely love you.” Adoption can be bittersweet, Farina said. “We’ve got some that are our favorites,” she said. “You’re kind of sad to see them go, but on the other hand, you’re really happy for them. Although there are a lot of people signed up as volunteers at the humane society, not all are there on a regular basis, Farina said. “It would be wonderful if we had so many volunteers that we were stepping over one another, but we don’t.” Hiser said the CAHS has started a new 25-hour volunteer training that awards a certificate upon its completion.

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

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

Top Individual Performances: No. 2

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

Counting down to No. 1

ThisWeek Community Newspapers

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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 B2 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 B2

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

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

TENNIS 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.”

The players qualified for the Columbus team by finishing first or second in their respecti ve age group in the Bernard Master Junior Satellite Circuit tournament held during the winter. In the Midwest City Team Tennis Championships, each player had to play one set of a singles match, doubles match and mix ed-doubles match, with each match being w orth one point. A team had to score more than 20 points to win the match. Columbus started the tournament by defeating Indianapolis Blue 32-8 and Chicago 22-18 and losing to St. Louis 21-19 in round-robin play.

FOOTBALL Continued from page B1 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.”


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

One of the things that attracted Justin Hallowell to play for the College of Wooster’s men’s basketball team was the Scots’ winning tradition. Wooster had the best winning percentage of any Division III team in the 2000s and made runs to a national semifinal in 2003 and 2007. But according to Hallowell, the Scots took the ne xt step after Nathan Balch transferred to Wooster from the University of Missouri-Kansas City before the 2008-09 season. “Nathan and I had played against each other a couple of times in high school,” said Hallowell, a 2008 Thomas Worthington High School graduate. “When I heard he w as transferring here, I immediately got in touch with him. We talked a lot during the summer (of 2008). When he got to school, it was like we had been playing together for a year already.” Hallowell and Balch, a 2007 Olentangy graduate, joined a contingent of central Ohio players that helped lead Wooster to a 31-3 record last season. The Scots lost to the Uni versity of St. Thomas (St. Paul, Minn.) 78-54 in their first appearance in the Di vision III national championship game on March 19 in Salem, Va. Balch (12.1 points, 3.4 rebounds), Hallowell (11.9 points, 6.1 rebounds) and 2007 St. Charles graduate Bryan Wickliffe (10.1 points, 6.4 rebounds) were among the Scots’ top four scorers. Ian Franks led the team in scoring, averaging 18.3 points. Balch, a 6-foot-1 guard who finished his college career tied for 22nd on Wooster’s all-time scoring list in three seasons with the program with 1,136 points, was named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches Honors Court for his w ork in the classroom and made firstteam all-NCAC. Wickliffe, a 6-5 center who finished as Wooster’s 10th-leading rebounder (754) and 15thleading scorer (1,193 points), and Hallowell, a 6-7 forw ard, were named second-team allNCAC. Forward Mike Evans, a 2008 Pickerington North graduate, and guards Doug Thorpe, a 2010 Eastmoor Academy graduate, and Bryce Agler, a 2010 Olentangy Orange graduate, played supporting roles last season. “Last season was everything I hoped for,” said Balch, who was team captain. “Ever since I was a little kid, I dreamed of playing in the national championship game. It w as a great feeling to actually live that out.” Balch, who a veraged 2.8 points in his one season with UMKC, didn’t like his role with the Kangaroos, who finished 11-21 that season. “I didn’t want to be one of these guys who came of f the bench and was a fill-in player,” he said. “I wanted to be a major contributor to the team with a winning tradition.” After talking with Wickliffe during a visit to Wooster, Balch knew he had found where he wanted to be.

Nathan Balch, an Olentangy graduate, was among six central Ohio natives who helped the College of Wooster men’s basketball team advance to the Division III national championship game last season.

group of Columb us players made Balch feel at home at Wooster. “When I went UMKC, I didn’t have anything in common with my teammates, ” he said. “We played against similar teams, so it was fun to talk about the experiences we had. It was nice to have (being from Columbus) in common.” None of the six area players on Wooster’s roster last season had experienced anything like the Scots’ run to the championship game. Only Thorpe, who was on Eastmoor’s team that lost to Toledo Libbey 59-50 in a 2008 regional semifinal, had been on a district championship team in high school. Wooster, which had finished 25-6 overall in the 2009-10 season after losing 75-68 to Guilford Technical Community College (Jamestown, N.C.), in the third round of the national tournament, opened last season by winning its first 20 games. The Scots were rank ed first in the nation before losing to Wabash College (Crawfordsville, Ind.) 69-68 on Feb. 5. Seven days later, they lost to Wittenberg 76-72. Hallowell called the tw ogame losing streak the turning point of the season. “A lot of our f ans started thinking instead of getting better throughout the season we were starting to get worse,” he said. “(Coach Steve Moore) told us, ‘Look guys, I think we’re playing good bask etball right now. I wouldn’t sweat it. We’re playing well and I think we can do big things in the tournament.’ That helped everyone’s morale and made us play better and better.” The Scots won their next 10 games, including a 47-45 win

over Manchester Community College (Manchester, N.H.) in the second round of the national tournament on March 5 and a 73-71 win over Williams College (Williamstown, Mass.) on March 18. However, in the national title game, St. Thomas built a 46-26 lead midway through the second half. Wooster went on a 10-0 run, which included a 3pointer by Balch, to cut St. Thomas’ lead in half but could get no closer. It was the second time in two years that St. Thomas had routed Wooster, as the Scots lost to the Tommies 84-53 at home on Nov. 21, 2009. The 31-point margin of defeat was the worst loss for Wooster since the Scots lost to Gannon University (Erie, Pa.) 95-53 on Nov. 23, 1999. It also marked Wooster’s widest margin of defeat at home since a 110-77 loss to Ohio Wesleyan on Jan. 14, 1987. “It was awful,” Balch said. “They must be our kryptonite or something. As we started to see it slip away from us, it really hurt us. We were having such a fun season and to ha ve it come to an end like that was just awful.” Hallowell said it w as days after the loss in the national championship game before he realized what the Scots had accomplished. “There was definitely a sense of disappointment walking off the court,” he said. “After talking with my friends and f amily, I realized how special of a season that was. It was definitely the best year of my life and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.”

The Beat Arts, eats and fun in central Ohio

FAB 5 By Jim Fischer


During The Beat’s interview with Keith Roberts of The Young Dubliners (see bit on Dublin Irish festival, this page), we asked him how he holds up vocally during an especially busy stretch, in light of having had surgery on his vocal cords a couple of years back. First off, he told us, he’s been at this for so long, most nights for 20 years, he wasn’t concerned. Second, he said, was that his band is about the band, not about his voice. “I’m not going out there and doing a Josh Groban impression.” But never fear, Groban himself will be doing Josh Groban Friday, Aug. 5, at the Schottenstein Center. The tenor is touring in support of his latest CD, Illuminations. Tickets are $86/$66. Call 1-800745-3000. Beneath Tab Benoit’s debonair exterior lies a rip-snorting, fire-breathing heart. The Beat is hard-pressed to decide whether his ache is better expressed in his classic Bayou vocal delivery or his whine and wail on the six-string.

The Cajun bluesman earned his stripes in New Orleans clubs and has long since made friends at clubs around the U.S. — including Vonn Jazz, where Benoit plays an early and late set on Friday,Aug. 5. Long Tall Deb opens. Tickets are $25. Call (614) 431-JAZZ.

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.

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

Bela Fleck and the Flecktones

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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