Zupnick to seek city council seat By JEFF DONAHUE ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Jan W. Zupnick, 61, has become the fourth person to formally announce his candidacy for a seat on Bexley City Council. Zupnick joins incumbent Mark Masser and challengers Steve Keyes and Tim Madison on the November ballot. Four seats on city council will be decided in the November election. While Masser has announced he will seek reelection, council member Jed Morison says he will not. Council president Jeff

McClelland and member Ben Kessler have yet to declare their intentions. The filing deadline with the Franklin County Board of Elections for the NovemJan ber ballot is 5 p.m. Zupnick Aug. 10. Zupnick is president of the Entrepreneurship Institute, a national, nonprofit, private corporation that provides learning, problem-solving and networking opportunities to small and mid-sized com-

panies. Zupnick has been married to his wife, Linda Zupnick, for 45 years. They have two sons, Daniel and Andrew, and four grandchildren. The Zupnicks have lived in Bexley for 33 years. He graduated from Plainedge High School on Long Island, N.Y., earned a bachelor’s degree in economics from Hofstra University and earned his master’s degree and Ph.D. in economics and community resource development from Michigan State University. “I have always been actively involved and participative in city/public service

wherever we live,” Zupnick said. “We believe in service to community and service beyond self.” Zupnick has served as a member of the Bexley Charter Review Commission, the Southwest Bexley Master Plan Committee and the Bexley Zoning Commission. He is currently a member of the Planning (Main Street) Commission. He also served as chairman of the search committee for Bexley development director and is a member of a number of Bexley Public Schools’ task forces, including those relating to financial accountability. He was co-chair of the com-

munications committee for the recently passed Bexley school levy. Zupnick said he is “politically affiliated with whoever can best serve, although most would say I’m financially conservative and socially not so much.” He said the decision to run was an easy one. “I decided to run for city council because I care about Bexley,” he said. “It faces some difficult short-term deficit problems that must be resolved now. It also must deal with longer-term fiscal See ZUPNICK, page A2

Later this month, Bexley City Council will hear an appeal of a Board of Zoning Appeals decision dealing with this property at 2325 Bryden Road. The owners want to demolish the home and build a new $400,000 home in its place.

City council to hear BZA appeal By JEFF DONAHUE ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Bexley City Council members anticipate a big turnout for their July 27 meeting, when they will hear an appeal of a controversial Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA ) decision. John Behal of Behal Sampson Deitz is seeking approval of a plan to demolish an existing single-family structure and garage at 2325 Bryden Road, along with architectural review for a new single-family home to be built on the site. The property is owned by Sarah and Moshe Frank. After discussing the plan at three meetings this spring, BZA members denied the Franks’ application by a 5-2 vote. Bill Jones, Tom Lewis, Steve Kuss, Sheila Straub, and Joe Kuspan voted against the application while Don Brosius and Peter Bardwell supported it. After hearing the appeal, city council

members may choose to let the BZA decision stand or override it with a simple majority vote, according to law director Lou Chodosh. He said that while council members will hear arguments July 27, they may take additional time to reach their decision. The Franks contend that the existing home is “dilapidated” and that remodeling it instead of replacing it would create a “substantial economic hardship.” While some neighbors welcome the demolition and construction of a new home on the site, others think the home could be saved. BZA members are appointed by the mayor and are responsible for reviewing all major changes and additions to homes as well as new builds in Bexley, according to Kathy Rose, Bexley Building Department manager and zoning officer. “The city strives to maintain our housing stock through our property maintenance code and/or by allowing the appli-

cants a process to apply for improvements, additions and requests to demolish,” Rose said. “All of these proposed changes are carefully critiqued by not only the design consultant, but also by our board members in order to make sure that the quality of the neighborhood is maintained and further issue a certificate of appropriateness.” Rose added that the board is “neither anti or pro demo; however, they do have the authority … to allow for demolition and further ensure that replacement structures are appropriate in design and scale for a neighborhood, with final approval subject to a majority vote of board members.” Rose said city code specifically addresses the demolition issue. “Bexley Code Section 1223.01 gives reason for the process we have in place for architectural review when a demoli-

Cassady Ave.  Central Bexley winners were Kathi and Barry Wolinetz at 2785 Powell Ave. and Sheila and Ed Straub at 76 S.

It was an instant New York Times and international bestseller. “Each year, we try to bring in new and exciting literary voices to our community,” said Bexley Community Book Club chair Linda Kass. “The range of Jonathan Safran Foer’s works and his unique approach to crafting a novel make him a compelling addition to our program. We are thrilled to have him as our fifth selected author.” BCBC is a community-based vehicle for promoting lifelong learning and reading. Launched in 2007 by the Bexley Education Foundation, it was conceived as a yearlong community read examining a number of works by a selected author. BCBC leaders aimed to involve the community in reading by hosting a series of book-related events, culminating in the author’s visit to Bexley. Previous selected authors have been journalist and novelist Pete Hamill; short story writer and Stanford professor Tobias Wolff; novelist Ann Patchett; and former U.S. Poet Laureate Billy Collins. Proceeds of Bexley Community Book Club, derived from sponsorships, ticket sales and book sales, are used by the Bexley Education Foundation to support projects and programs in the Bexley City School District. BCBC community partners include The Ohio State University Creative Writing Program, Bexley Public Library and WBNS-10TV, among others.

The Bexley Community Book Club has announced that author Jonathan Safran Foer has been chosen as the group’s 2012 selected author. Foer, who has been called one of the most influential writers of the last decade, will appear in Bexley on April 18, 2012, where he will spend the day working with students, attending a VIP dinner with patrons, and presenting a public lecture. A number of events in the months leading up to Jonathan Foer’s arrival Safran Foer are in the works and will be announced in September. Foer is the author of the international bestseller, “Everything Is Illuminated,” which was published when he was 25. Hailed as the “debut of the decade,” it was named Book of the Year by The Los Angeles Times and won numerous awards. It was made into a 2005 movie directed by Liev Schreiber and starring Elijah Wood. His second novel, “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close,” published in 2005, was a national and international bestseller. Published in 2005, it was also a winner of multiple awards. A movie version will be released in 2012. Foer’s nonfiction book, “Eating Animals,” an exploration of the folkloric, practical and moral implications in consuming meat,

Radio Café to close temporarily for reno By JEFF DONAHUE ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Drexel Theatre’s Radio Café, 2254 E. Main St., will close Monday, July 18, for renovation as part of an overall re-evaluation of how the space should best be used, according to Richard Stoff, chairman of the Friends of the Drexel Inc. “Our community and the movie industry have undergone significant changes during the 15 years that the Radio Café has been in operation,” Stoff said. “In addition to some basic TLC, we want to reevaluate the space to make sure we’re serving the needs of our patrons, and providing a quality experience for them, as effectively and efficiently as possible.” While the Café is closed, concessions will still be available for purchase in the theatre. Some items will move to the theatre concession stand. Beer and wine selections will expand and a coffee service will also be available. Movie showings will continue as scheduled. A reopening date for the Radio Café has not yet been determined.

Continued from page A1 and quality-of-life issues as we all assess what services we want and what we are willing to pay for them.” Zupnick said he thinks Bexley has great potential to develop and thrive by taking advantage of its best assets — “location, a community of residents that love being here, terrific schools, quality housing, safety, beauty” — to compete with other communities for people and businesses. “I want to help solve problems and participate in the future of Bexley,” he said. “Most importantly, I believe my experience and knowledge will let me represent Bexley’s best interests immediately. “Bexley needs to take immediate action to close its budget gap and, at the same time, initiate a longer-term strategy that produces financial stability,” he said. “We are being asked: What do you want in services and how much are you willing to pay for them? “The answer requires an immediate plan that brings in new revenue, but not all from a new income tax levy. The answer requires restraining costs, but being careful not to cut so much that it reduces the quality and levels of important services or people needed to perform them. “An increase in the income tax seems inevitable, so one should be on the ballot in November,” he said. “Reducing the costs of government is also inevitable and will require transparency and cooperation between the city administration and its union and non-union personnel. Without increased revenue and cost reductions, a levy’s passage is in doubt.” Over the longer term, Zupnick said Bexley residents must understand that, “We cannot tax ourselves to prosperity. The only source of new revenue is growth of the tax base (property tax and income tax) through commercial development. We’ve had so many studies and plans already that it’s time to pull together the develop-

ers, property owners and city stakeholders to find out what the impediments to development are in Bexley.” Zupnick’s specific suggestions include: • More aggressively promoting Bexley as a great place for professionals and high-wage earners to live and work. • A targeted business strategy led by the mayor and development director. • Determining what to do with the Jeffrey Mansion and Park. His ideas included consideration of third-party management of the facility. • Coming to a definitive resolution regarding the location of City Hall and the service area behind it. Zupnick says the city needs to assemble a large enough parcel of land so it can attract developers (and build the tax base) for the site stretching from City Hall to the Gateway. He said City Hall can be incorporated into the redevelopment (second floor) or moved to the north as suggested by the Fisher School of Business study. • Establishing a standing committee to coordinate resource requirements and strengthen cooperation among the key institutions in Bexley. Zupnick also wants to revisit the Main Street Guidelines and other regulations that affect commercial development, making high-wage job creation a higher priority in approving projects. He also favors change in zoning codes to require tax-paying commercial development in the key developable areas remaining along Main Street, southwest Bexley and North Cassady. He said his goals for the city include expanding the tax base by strengthening development efforts, focused on recruiting high wage/professional businesses; resolving the short-term budget crisis now while implementing a longer-term plan for financial sustainability; and filling up Main Street with restaurants, arts and entertainment venues so it be-

comes “the place” for the community to gather. He says his vision for the city is simple. “What I see for Bexley is more of what we have,” he said. “ My vision is a safe, friendly and developed city with a thriving commercial district on Main featuring performance arts, entertainment and pedestrian-friendly access. I see business being attracted along a developed Alum Creek/Ferndale which also preserves environmental and recreational amenities. “I see the mansion and park area serving as it has for community gatherings, but also refurbished and maintained properly because it generates revenue from its ability to offer new programs and services in conjunction with the recreation department; and I see the potential for consolidating government buildings in the north or within a new Main Street development that results from freeing up prime real estate along Main.” Zupnick said his experience qualifies him as a capable city council member. “I understand small business/professional firms and job creation,” he said. “I have understanding and practical experience in the operations of government as a result of my service to the city and prior work a director of the Bureau for Policy Planning and Development for the Michigan Department of Commerce. “I have led my nonprofit company successfully for 33 years with a vision for growth and understand what it takes to deliver quality services,” Zupnick said. “I know how to cooperate and support but also how and when to take the right stand. Finally, I am determined to set aside the time and certainly have the desire to get things done.”

Continued from page A1 tion is requested,” Rose said. “It requires us to recognize the need to balance the benefits of preserving the city’s existing quality and character against the benefits of responsible renewal and redevelopment of the city’s aging housing stock.” Behal presented drawings for the new home that would replace the existing house. The April 14 meeting was the third presentation in front of the board and the Franks hoped to get the project approved that night so they could move ahead. After the first meeting, board members asked if the existing building had to be demolished and requested a report from a professional engineer. They also said they wanted to visit the property. During the second meeting, the board heard a presentation and saw photographs that detailed the defects of the present home. An engineer visited the home and compiled a report detailing the defects he had found. When the board visited the home, board member Joe Kuspan was able to pull out loose bricks from the front facade. The professional engineer’s report was found to be in full agreement with statements made by the remodeler that it would be more be more economical to raze the building than to attempt to restore it. The original concept for the new home showed a Hardi Plank exterior, which is featured in several homes in Bexley. There were concerns, however, about losing a brick home in the city, so the final design has been revised to make the main structure

brick. The applicants contend the existing home is in “extremely dilapidated condition” and it would create a “substantial economic burden” to make needed repairs. Behal said the previous owners let the house fall into disrepair and the Franks now have a house that creates a substantial economic burden to renovate. According to city code, the replacement plan must be superior to the existing structure. Behal said the value of the existing home deteriorated to the point where it sold for only $209,000. He noted the new house will be one of the most expensive in that part of central Bexley. He estimated the proposed value of the replacement structure at approximately $405,000. By combining the purchase price and the cost of the replacement structure, he estimated the total future value at about $614,000.

Assisted Living Plus...



City urged to list goals, save jobs To the editor: I’d like to comment on the upcoming vote to place a Bexley income tax increase on the November ballot. I have two suggestions: 1 — City council should pass a resolution/letter of expected outcomes to accompany its vote to place an income tax increase on the November ballot. Language from the “letter” should be incorporated into the explanation of income tax issue to be voted on in November. I’m suggesting that council detail the outcome(s) to be achieved if the issue passes. It should summarize the projected amount of new revenue inflow over a fixed time, the amount of cost cuts to be achieved from salary and benefit negotiations and other savings. Commitment to a specific result over a specified time period: “closing the budget gap by 2013(?) ...” Or “closing the gap by ….and adding to the rainy day fund to cushion Bexley against greater financial hardship” is needed as we ask the voters for additional funds. This will establish accountability and confidence. It will build support for the levy. We will have a benchmark with which to gauge the city’s performance during this crisis and to make reasonable decisions in the future. 2 — “Since cuts (I believe 5percent was mentioned) must be part of the overall solution and, by necessity, entail employee concessions,” (Kessler, This Week), I’d encourage the city to adopt this principle: Minimize job loses wherever possible. Much has been debated about the need for the increase in income tax rate. Little has been offered on how to save 5 percent of salary and benefit costs other than by cutting “jobs” or “making concessions”. I believe council indicated that 5 percent cuts in salary and benefits would save up to $400,000. No one wants to lose their job. No employer wants to lose their people. Indeed, there is a link between the quality and delivery of city services and the quality and productivity of the city employees delivering the services. Make job loss to save 5 percent the last resort. Besides, the economy will recover; and when it does, we’ll avoid the heavy costs of recruiting, hiring and training new employees to fill vacancies we recently cut. Making job loss a last resort principle, doesn’t mean we can’t cut labor expenses: Here’s a way to save about 5

percent in salary and benefit costs without losing a single job. There are about 1,900 work hours in a work year. There are 8 hours in a work day. One work day is about 0.42 percent of a work year. There are 12 months in a work year. 12 x 0.42 = 5 percent. Negotiate (union and non-union must both agree) that all employees take one unpaid flex day off each month. It doesn’t need be the same day for everyone (it can’t be the same day for patrol police) and the decision on allocation of manpower can be handled by those in a supervisory role anyway. One day a month. My experience is that this approach would be preferred by the employees to losing jobs. It’s a winwin that supports closing the budget gap now and can remain in place until the economy recovers and uncertainty over revenue-negative impacts clarifies. Jan Zupnick Bexley

Many helped aid house, garden tour To the editor: On behalf of the Bexley Women’s Club, we thank the many individuals and businesses who made the fourth Annual Bexley House and Garden Tour a success. Without that support, we would not be able to continue to offer more than 20 college scholarships each year or offer an event that continues to expand and improve. First, sincere thanks to the generous homeowners who so graciously offered their homes and gardens to be toured by nearly 800 visitors. We fully realize and


appreciate the extra effort that is put forth to make the tour pleasurable for those guests. We also received outstanding support from local businesses and individuals who participated either as a sponsor for the tour or provided tasty bites for the Preview Celebration and at homes during the tour. That participation is essential to the success of the tour. Heartfelt thanks to our dedicated committee who spent many months to plan and prepare the innumerable details involved with such an event, as well as the hundreds of volunteers who willingly stepped forward to donate several hours of their time to welcome and inform the visitors who arrived from across Ohio and neighboring states. It truly takes the Bexley “village” to make it all happen. We invite you to mark your calendar for the fifth annual “There’s no place like home” House and Garden Tour on June 9 and 10, 2012. We hope you, too, may want to become involved in this worthwhile effort to showcase the varied homes of Bexley as we continue to provide essential scholarship support for college students. We also invite interested individuals to visit our website,, for information about joining the Bexley Women’s Club. When women unite, great things happen. Please consider joining and making a difference in the community through a variety of civic, social and intellectual activities.

Bexley students visit Italy on CISV trips Several Bexley students are currently traveling as part of the Children’s International School Village (CISV) programs. CISV provides travel opportunities and local programs to help young people grow through international experiences. The organization’s website,, describes it as “a charitable, independent, nonpolitical, volunteer organization promoting peace education and cross-cultural friendship.” Amanda Kaiser, an American Sign Language interpreter at Cassingham, and Bexley High School grad Gina Vottero are accompanying a group of students who are in Padova, Italy through CISV’s summer Interchange program. They include:Addison Torrence, Riley Hayden, Maddie Marsh, Megan Jaffy, Grace Maley, Grant Robinson, Caleb Oglesby and Cameron Hall. A second group is currently in Florence, Italy. That group is made up of: Keiser Beachler, Isabelle Burgdoff, Bess Greenberg, Sarah Gundy, Elizabeth Jaffy, Caroline Shapiro

and Exer Thurston. Both contingents returned to the U.S. on Monday, July 11. Upon arrival, the Padova group attended a three-day minicamp in the mountains, described by Kaiser as a “town tucked into the mountains” “The food is fantastic,” she added. “You think you’re done and you have another course, and you get another spoonful — sometimes by request, and sometimes just because we look like we’ll eat it, I suppose.” She said the students have played a lot of soccer and other games and taken hikes. Designed for students ages 12-15, the Interchange is a family-centered, international exchange involving back-to-back visits by delegations from two different countries. Contingents of Italian students from both cities will be in Bexley later this month, starting July 13 and 14.

ber of Genesis, guitarist Daryl Stuermer, has had a pretty good handle on the “Genesis Experience.” So when he decided to create an orchestral show of the music of Genesis featuring his own band, it was with the full blessing of Messrs. Rutherford, Banks and Collins. “I always wished they’d have done it,” Stuermer told The Beat of combining Genesis and a full orchestra. With Genesis in at least semi-retirement, Stuermer figured it was time to see what they thought of his idea. “Mike (Rutherford) immediately said, ‘I’d love to hear it,’” Stuermer said. “When I played some of it for the guys, they were all happy to hear what we’d done.” Stuermer, a Milwaukee native and resident, joined Genesis as the touring replacement for founding member Steve Hackett in 1978, coming off a threeyear stint playing guitar in jazz violinist Jean-Luc Ponty’s band.

Weenies serves a variety of ‘super tasty’ hot dogs Weenies has tons of potential. It has the gourmet hot dog market on campus cornered and it serves super tasty madein-Ohio meats grilled to order. Plus, it has a name that’s irresistible to dirty-minded college kids. Indeed, the Weenies owners reported more than a dozen of their signs were stolen — likely by dorm dwellers looking for free decorations — before the restaurant even opened its doors. So if the eatery can work out a few assembly-line kinks and simplify the menu a bit, I’m predicting a success. Weenies is right to be proud of its Ohio meats. They’re a noticeable step up, tastewise, from standard brand-name wieners. And they’re boiled, then grilled, lending a smoky, charbroiled flavor. You pick your choice of dog: all-beef Classic ($3), pork and beef Hottie ($3.65), all-beef Classic Brat ($3.65), all-beef Cheese Brat ($3.85), Chicken Dog ($3.25), Veggie Dog ($3.25) or the Big Weenie one-pounder ($10).

not only heftier but also has a more complex, spicy flavor profile than a classic dog. You then choose from more than 40 toppings, which is where things get complicated. Forty options sounds like a good thing, but it’s actually kind of paralyzing when you’re standing there, trying to decide which toppings would work best together. It’d be great to see a few Weenies signature dogs on the menu for folks who like having their decisions made for them. There are some nice, unexpected topping options, like a spicy, colorful red-pepper relish, avocados and pineapple salsa. But it starts to get ridiculous — five different mustards, four salsas and dried cranberries? Another concern that will surely

be remedied soon: On our first visit, the menu didn’t indicate that some toppings are free while others cost 35 cents or 75 cents extra. On the side, sweet potato fries ($3) are crunchy and good, but ask for some spicy mayo for dipping rather than the provided ketchup. The Grilled Peanut Butter & Jelly ($2.75), basically a hybrid PB & J and grilled cheese — sans cheese — would taste fantastic at about 2:30 a.m. … and luckily, Weenies is open till 3 a.m. Thursday through Saturday.

Popular Lindey’s bartender opens own place in the Brewery District Tony Murray was a bartender at a popular restaurant, had scores of adoring customers and a bevy of friendly co-workers, whom he called family. But with the dream of one day opening his own place, the longtime bartender at Lindey’s left his comfortable surroundings for something less certain but with amazing potential — a restaurant of his own. On Monday, he opened T. Murray’s Bar and Kitchen, an ode to the

bygone days of the Rat Pack, classic cocktails and personalized service. He said he can’t emphasize his attachment to Lindey’s enough. He started bartending at the German Village institution in 1989 and said leaving was difficult. “You’ve been in this comfort zone for so long,” he said. “I was just waiting for the right opportunity and it came along.” Yet, he has lofty ambitions for T. Murray’s. The restaurant takes over the for-

mer Barrister Hall location at 560 S. High St. in the Brewery District, which has a reemerging entertainment and restaurant scene. Murray and partners Steve Bagley and Maryanne Testa have spent the past year completely refurbishing the interior of the two-story building, which flaunts a custom-built bar on each floor, wooden floors complemented by darker wood accents and exposed brick for a traditional American look. Murray also is behind the bar, happy to pour traditional drinks such as the OldFashioned, Rusty Nail, Rob Roy and Sidecar. He also plans to dust off the cocktail recipes that date back to the speakeasies of Prohibition-era Chicago. Murray said he wanted a strong emphasis on food and service, a casual ambience with upscale menu. For starters, patrons get a choice of three breads — sourdough, multi-grain and crusty white — all baked locally at Eleni-Christina Bakery. Testa developed the dishes, which she calls upscale comfort food, and chef Christine Remley is responsible for their execution. The menu has a solid American-tavBy Eric George/ThisWeek ern foundation with many modern touchTony Murray and two investors have opened T. Murray’s Bar and Kitchen at es, Testa said.

Ohio Elite squad earns tournament title By FRANK DiRENNA ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The ceremonial drenching — and the victory — must have been quite refreshing for Ohio Elite 14-and-under baseball coach David Lee. Ohio Elite beat the Ohio Force of Cincinnati 7-1 in the Buckeye Elite Showcase Tournament 14-and-under championship game on July 10 at Olentangy High School. As the team celebrated in the outfield on a hot afternoon, players poured a cooler of water over Lee.

Ohio Elite improved to 41-9 this season. Pitcher Brad Wilson, who will attend Northridge, pitched a complete game. He allowed six hits, struck out eight and walked one. “We’re starting to come together as a team,” Wilson said. “We’ve been having trouble the first couple of weeks, but everybody is starting to hit at the same time, everybody is fielding, all of our pitching is coming together. We’re coming together very well.” Cameron Comer’s RBI single scored Kyle Galyk with the game’s first run in

the fifth inning. “We just came out and hit the ball like we knew how to, played like we knew how to and we knew we’d win,” said Comer, who attends Olentangy Liberty. Ohio Elite added three runs in the sixth, highlighted by Tyrell Harris’two-run single, and three runs in the seventh, with Comer delivering a two-run single. Second baseman Evan Lee, the coach’s son, made a key defensive play when he caught a line drive and doubled off Force leadoff batter Jordan Ramey at third base in the fourth inning to keep the game scoreless.

Ohio Elite advanced to the title game by beating the East Side Irish 18-5 in six innings, the Great Lakes Giants 10-2, the Academy Stars of Buffalo 3-2 and Team New Era of Buffalo 16-5 in five innings. Ohio Elite received a championship T-shirt, plaque and commemorative bat. “We’ve really peaked the last couple of weeks,” coach Lee said. “Brad pitched a complete game. We knew coming in he was one of our top pitchers. ... The best thing with our staff is we’re eight, nine deep and they all throw.” •The Columbus Cobras 18-and-under team reached a semifinal but lost to the

Lookouts of Alliance 4-1 on July 10 at Dublin Jerome. The Cobras advanced to the semifinal round with a come-from-behind 5-4 win over Steve’s Sports of Mayfield. Trailing 4-2 with two outs in the seventh inning, the Cobras’ Kendall Johnson hit a routine fly ball to left fielder Drew Teller, who dropped it, allowing the tying runs to score.

Athletes describe ideal coach One of the most critical aspects in the development of a young person comes when an older individual provides a model on how to grow and be successful. While parents set the standard for influencing their daughters and sons, coaches can have an enormous impact on how student-athletes LARRY perceive themLARSON selves, how hard they want to work to get better and how they make adjustments when things go right or wrong. This week, the high school student-athletes writing in my summer series detail the qualities they like best in their coaches. Napoleon Bell, Hartley, football and wrestling: “I like a coach whose top goals are not only the success of the team but also are geared towards the betterment of the athletes and people around him.” Morgan Ransom, Columbus Academy, golf: “I love having a coach who wants what is best for me and is willing to push me to be the best. It is also important that a coach is there for you on a bad day.” Mary Wells, Westerville Central, bowling: “To me, the key things for being a successful coach is knowledge of the sport and being patient with the athlete.” Michela Paradiso, Upper Arlington, soccer and basketball: “I like an intense coach who coaches me to improve every day and who knows the potential of his or her players and refuses to let them fall short.” Jimmy Gammill, New Albany, football: “I like coaches who have a sense of humor and who are relaxed, but at the same time with that coach, you know you can’t slack off and always have to work hard.” Jake Blankenship, Gahanna, pole vault: “What is important to me is that a coach has experience in pole vaulting and has had multiple different inputs from other coaches and how to be successful in vaulting.” Austin Cuervo, St. Charles, golf: “I like a coach that is laid back and easy going, but is always confident in their team and always wants to compete at the highest level of play.” Chase Delande, Hilliard Davidson, football and wrestling: “What is important to me is that a coach is willing to get you to be the best and puts time into your effort. Also, I like coaches who will help you prepare for the next level of your sport.” Faith Washington, Reynoldsburg, track: “I like to see motivation and sometimes frustration from a coach because it shows that they care about their athletes and want to bring out the best in them.” Next week, the student-athletes will write about one of the vital crossroads in their careers: how to handle defeat and disappointment. I’ll see you at a game.

Ben Levey, a 2006 graduate of Bexley, is the chairman of the Likoni Community Football League, which grew from its original plan of 14 teams to 30. “It was hard to turn down anyone who wanted to be part of the league,” Levey said.


Levey making impact in Kenya By PAUL BATTERSON ThisWeek Community Newspapers

When he arrived in February in Likoni, a village of 100,000 people outside of Mombasa, Kenya, Ben Levey only knew how to count to 10 and say “hello” in Swahili. But the 2006 Bexley High School graduate quickly found a way to communicate with the children in the village — by playing soccer.

“The passion for soccer over there is incredible. I have never seen anything like it before,” said Levey, who played for the Lions’ 2003 and 2005 Division II state championship teams. “It was an easy way to connect with the kids. “Passing the ball back and forth was so natural. There’s some sort of connection there. You feel like you’re friends all of a sudden.” While serving as a volunteer with Hatua

Likoni, a community-based, non-government organization trying to alleviate poverty and promote education among the community’s youth, Levey became chairman of the Likoni Community Football League. The initial plan was to create a 14-team league, but the LCFL quickly grew to 20, 28 and then 30 teams. “Once coaches over there saw that I was serious and they saw the goalposts going up, they wanted to get involved,” Levey

said. “I wanted to keep it small because I wanted to make sure everything ran smoothly, but it grew to 600 kids before I knew it. It was hard to turn down anyone who wanted to be part of the league.” Levey will play host to a fundraiser called “Kick Back 4 Kids” at 6 p.m. Monday, July 18, at the Bexley-area Old Bag of Nails, 18 North Nelson Road.

Top Individual Performances: No. 5

Backes powered Golden Bears to state title By PATRICK DOLAN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

In the days leading up to the 2000 Division I state championship game between the Upper Arlington High School football team and Solon, Golden Bears running back and safety Jeff Backes was named Ohio’s Mr. Football. More than 10 years later, Backes admits that he felt some additional pressure to play well because of the award. However, he didn’t let the pressure get the best of him as he rushed for 183 yards and two touchdowns on 32 carries and preserved a 15-9 victory on Dec. 2, 2000, at Fawcett Stadium in Canton with an interception with less than a minute remaining. UA finished 15-0 and became the first central Ohio team to win the big-school state title since the inception of the playoffs in 1972. “No other Mr. Football (honorees) had won the state championship, so in a way there was some added pressure,” said Backes, a 2001 UA graduate who went on to play for Northwestern University. “But I was confident in

testament to his toughness because he rose to that challenge. “It was a tremendous performance on his part. He had a great supporting cast, but nonetheless it was a great performance. Any time you rush for 180 yards in a Division I state championship game, I think that’s a superior performance.” Backes, who was 5-foot-9 and 180 pounds in his senior season at UA, opened the scoring in the championship game with a 15yard touchdown run with 8 minutes, 23 seconds left in the first quarter. The two-point conversion gave UA an 8-0 lead. On the touchdown run, Backes took the handoff from quarterback Brian Ramey on a draw play and broke a tackle by Solon safety Steve Watson at the 5-yard line.

Bernard Master Tennis Classic

Witsken, Schiller defeat OSU duo in open final By PAUL BATTERSON ThisWeek Community Newspapers

By Eric George/ThisWeek

Chuck Bolton of Westerville returns a shot July 9 during tournament play.

Eighteen years after he earned All-American honors for the University of Alabama men’s tennis team, Rick Witsken still is on top of his game. Witsken and Matt Schiller defeated 2011 Ohio State graduate Matt Allare and Buckeyes senior Steve Williams 6-4, 2-6, 6-3 in the men’s open final of the Bernard Master Tennis Classic on July 10. The two-day doubles tournament was held at the Wickertree Tennis Club in north Columbus. “I didn’t play for seven years. (Then two years ago) I played well in an individual tennis tournament,” said Witsken, who was one of four players who represented the United States in the Tony Trabert Cup in New Zealand last February. “All of a sudden it was like, ‘Wow, I think I can still do this.’ That kind of motivated me.” “Any time there’s a competitive tournament like this, you know you’re going to playing against

guys like these,” Schiller said. “It’s fun to see if I have any skills left. That’s the main reason I come.” Schiller, who lives in Carmel, Ind., and Witsken, who lives in Zionsville, Ind., also captured the men’s 35 title with a forfeit victory over Toledo’s James Kaser and Lima’s Jerome Moenter in the final. They received $800 apiece for winning the open title and an additional $200 each for winning the 35 championship. Witsken has played in the Bernard Master doubles tournament four times, winning the open division three times and finishing second the other time. Allare, who lives in Columbus, and Williams, of Manlius, N.Y., earned $400 each for reaching the open final while Moenter and Kaser each received $100 for finishing second in the 35 division. Allare and Williams struggled against the return game of Witsken and Schiller. “At Ohio State, we practice volleying quite a bit, but they knew how to volley as well,” said Al-

lare, who won two state doubles and two state singles titles for Kings Mills Kings High School from 2004-07. “They both have very good serves and return of serves. They knew what they were doing.” “They got the ball low at your toes consistently and put the pressure on,” Williams said. “The only thing you can do is serve better and not miss so many first serves. I missed too many first serves and that ended up being a big factor.” Because of low turnout, Wickertree canceled the women’s open in addition to the men’s 45 and men’s 55 divisions. That worked to the benefit of Witsken and Schiller. “We were glad that there weren’t that many teams because we are not young bucks anymore,” Witsken said. “It was 90 degrees and an on-court temperature of 120 degrees. That plays with your mind a little bit as well as your on-court abilities.”

Counting down to No. 1 ThisWeek Community Newspapers has been around for 22 years. That timeframe was used as the basis to compile a top-10 list of the top individual performances we’ve covered. Along with the experienced sports staff at ThisWeek and Steve Blackledge, high school reporter at The Columbus Dispatch, we arrived at a top-10 list. Below are Nos. 6-10. Check back next week for No. 4 and let us know your thoughts at NOS. 6-10: 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 touch-

downs on 19 carries. 9. LATOYA TURNER, Pickerington girls basketball (March 19, 1999) — The 6-foot-4 senior helped the Tigers advance to the Division I state final with her 29-point performance in a 5135 win over Wadsworth. The Ohio State recruit made 12 of 14 shots from the floor and was 5-for-6 from the freethrow 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.

in the game. The Comets needed just five plays to reach the UA 22. Then, after an incomplete pass on first down, Solon quarterback Jay Price tried to hit running back Scott Greenberg, who had lined up as a receiver, down the middle of the field in the end zone. However, Backes stepped in front of Greenberg and intercepted the pass at the goal line, returning the ball to the UA 11 with 46 seconds left. “They were in a four-receiver set and were trying to stretch the field and get one of the seams,” Mayne said. “The quarterback put a little bit of a loft on the ball and right away I thought, ‘Man, I think Jeff will pick this off.’ Of course, he did, and he had the presence of mind to not try to be a hero and try to return it (for a touchdown).” “Someone turned to me in the huddle and said, ‘Make a play, Jeff,’” Backes said, “and a couple plays later, I made a read on the ball and the rest is history.” UA’s offense came onto the field and, after two kneel-downs by Ramey, the game was over and the celebration began. “After Jeff scored (in the third quarter), from that point on, both sides couldn’t move the ball,” said Ramey, also a 2001 UA graduate. “Then, all of a sudden, (the

Comets) go to the no-huddle offense and start moving the ball. You start to get nervous, but then out of nowhere (Backes) makes the interception. It was pandemonium on the sidelines.” During the postgame celebration, a UA fan held a sign that read, “Backes is God.” “He’s been telling us all year that the offensive line is his savior,” Lisi said after the game. “Tonight ... he was our savior.” Backes finished the 2000 season with a then-state record 3,353 yards rushing and 44 touchdowns. According to the OHSAA, he now ranks third in state history in rushing yards in a season, behind Bedford Chanel’s Tony Franklin (3,439) and Williamsburg’s Jason Bainum (3,386), both of whom surpassed his total in 2001. “He just continued to produce over and over again,” Ramey said of Backes. “It’s pretty amazing what he did (in the championship game).” Backes now is 28 years old and a third-year medical resident in orthopedic surgery at Mount Carmel West. He and his wife, Marissa, have two daughters — Leighton, 23 months, and Brooklyn, 7 months.

UA the ball on its own 38. On the Bears’ first offensive play of the second half, Backes took the handoff from Ramey and ran to the right behind left tackle Simon Fraser and left guard Matt Lisi, both of whom pulled on the play. Backes got to the outside and outraced Solon linebacker Marc Leighton and Comets cornerbacks J.T. Staiger and Justin Bitner down the right side to the end zone for a 62-yard touchdown. The extra point by John Tarpy gave UA a 15-6 lead with 10:53 left in the third quarter. “It was a beautiful lead block by Simon Fraser, and Jeff popped it and went down the sideline,” Mayne said. “They weren’t going to catch him.” “Two linemen were pulling on the play,” Backes said. “We had an athletic line, which allowed us to do a lot of counter plays. (The linemen) made their blocks, and it turned into a footrace (to the end zone).” Solon cut the deficit to 15-9 on a 36-yard field goal by Tim Echan with 4:18 left in the third quarter but wouldn’t cross into Bears territory again until its final possession, which started from its own 30 with 1:40 remaining

Bexley boys soccer coach Greg Kullman said he’s not surprised that Levey’s idea grew so quickly. “Even as a sophomore on the 2003 team, Ben was a natural leader,” said Kullman, who was an assistant coach on that team. “He’s a hard worker and he gets those people around him to work together. “Ben worked with our freshman coach last year and we were hoping to have him back this season, but he’s decided the work he’s doing in Kenya is much needed. I couldn’t argue with him.” Levey got involved with Hatua Likoni as a way of giving back. Hatua means “step forward” in Swahili, according to the organization’s website, “At the end of my senior year at the University of Wisconsin, I decided I wanted to do something

completely different,” Levey said. “I wanted to go to a foreign country and volunteer to do something before I started grad school.” Levey, who graduated from Wisconsin in spring 2010 with a degree in biology, planned to begin pursuing a doctorate in physical therapy at the University of Pittsburgh in August, but he has pushed that back to next June. Levey, who returned from Kenya on May 15, said he plans to go back on Aug. 18 and will be there for at least three months, although he might extend that. Levey said was taken aback by the poverty he saw in Kenya, which is located on Africa’s eastern coast. On the soccer field, many children would tie together trash bags and wrap them into a ball. “After growing up in Bexley, I realized I lived in a bubble. My friends who aren’t from here call Bexley ‘Pleasantville,’” Levey said. “Sometimes when I was coaching, I would have to step back and say, ‘Look at where you are. Look at the houses around you. Look at the environment you are in.’ “I was amazed by the amount

of poverty over there, but because of the friendliness of the people, they didn’t seem that different from me.” Interest in the LCFL grew quickly in an area that offers little extracurricular activities for youth. However, creating fields and organizing the league took longer than Levey anticipated. “Everything in Kenya runs a lot slower than the USA. After the first week there, I realized I could only pick one thing to do each day,” Levey said. “Something that would take 15 to 30 minutes here takes three to six hours over there for some reason. “The happiest moment (of my time in Kenya) was probably the first day the league started. I was sitting there watching the U-12 teams play. This kid scored and he was mobbed in the corner by his teammates and they were imitating the things they’ve seen from (England’s) Wayne Rooney and all the other soccer stars. It kind of brought of tears to my eyes. That made all the hard work worth it.”

play,” coach Chris Huesman said. “You have to win them to move on. We didn’t get that done.” Ohio Elite rebounded to beat the JBR Rays of Green Bay (Wis.) 8-0. Hilliard Davidson’s Mike Scaglione allowed two hits, struck out five and walked one in a complete-game effort. Ohio Elite and the Columbus Cobras 17-and-under team were tied at 10 on July 9 at Granville when the game was suspended because of darkness. Ohio Elite opted not to return to Granville on July 10 to complete the game in the silver championship bracket. Huesman not only was able to give his team valuable experience during the tournament, he also was able to showcase his complex at Jerome, where he is coach. “We have teams from all over the state, contiguous states and Canada coming over, and it’s always nice for them to see our facilities and what we have to offer,” Huesman said. Other champions were the Stark County Terriers in the 18-andunder division, the North Georgia Barons in the 16-and-under division and the North Coast Vipers in the 15-and-under division.

DeVore’s pinch-hit triple in the sixth scored Johnson and closed the Cobras to 3-2. Russ Hogue earned the win in relief. He then pitched a complete game against the Lookouts. “We were flat all day, even the first game, and then we put it together at the end,” Cobras coach Harry Huskey said. “We got our emotional high and then we sit around for 45 minutes and we came out and didn’t play real well again. The other team took advantage of our three errors and we only had four hits, so we didn’t deserve to win that game.” The Cobras are 35-6 heading into the Pastime Best of the Midwest Tournament at Wright State and the University of Dayton on Thursday, July 14. •The Ohio Elite 17-and-under team finished 2-1-1 in the 18-andunder division.
