Leadership, volunteer expo moving to Tuttle mall


Good Friday tradition continues

Children lead the procession as they carry a cross from Dublin Coffman High School during the annual Dublin Cross Walk Friday afternoon, March 29. Members of churches throughout Dublin participated in the annual event that began at the school and concluded with a short service in Dublin Community Church, 81 W. Bridge St. in Historic Dublin.

The Dublin Leadership and Volunteer Expo could serve as a cure for spring fever. The event sponsored by Dublin and Leadership Dublin will bring 25 local organizations seeking volunteers and board leadership together April 10 in the Mall at Tuttle Crossing. Informational tables will be set up all day in the food court area and organization representatives are expected to man the tables starting at 6 p.m. “April is an incredible month for people springing into action,” said Christine Nardecchia, Dublin Volunteer Resources administrator. “That starts with the Leadership and Volunteer Expo and that will be held at the Mall at Tuttle Crossing,” Nardecchia said. “Twenty organizations will be there if you’re interested in finding out where to give your time and talents.” The event was previously held in the Dublin Community Recreation Center and Leadership Dublin Director Karen Hardin is hoping the new venue will bring the event more people. “Basically we’re just trying to appeal to a larger audience,” Hardin said. “This gives a little more visibility for the expo and for organ-

izations that could use more volunteers.” The expo serves as a connecting point for volunteers, organizations and people who want to take a leadership role in local nonprofits. “I think this offers a one-stop shopping approach to see all the different opportunities available in the community to get involved and participate and make the selection that appeals to you,” Hardin said. “Come out and get involved.” In addition to volunteer opportunities to be found at the April 10 expo, Dublin also has upcoming events seeking volunteers. “April is a month of springing into

action,” Nardecchia said. “It’s the right month for training folks for the right things.” The city is seeking a leadership team for a new community garden set to open next spring. The team will prepare the infrastructure for the grounds, research best practices for the garden and help launch the gardeners.

all scenarios will likely impact the ingress and egress to the existing restaurant.” Wendy’s was already planning another restaurant in the vicinity and in November rezoning was approved for 1.35 acres on the southwest corner of Dale Drive and state Route 161 in the Shoppes at River Ridge. A 3,800-square-foot restaurant is planned with a new design, meeting room and area to display Wendy’s memorabilia. The company has touted the new location as a flagship for the restaurant brand and a place for employees to visit. “Wendy’s has been most cooperative with this purchase and intends to construct a new restaurant nearby,” the staff report said. The $2 million deal will be paid for with funds from the River Ridge Tax Increment Financing fund if approved, the staff report said. The TIF has not yet earned $2 million, but “funds have been advanced from the capital improvements tax fund and will be repaid as service payments are received from the TIF district,” the staff report said. The purchase agreement will allow Wendy’s to operate at its current location until the new restaurant is open. The city anticipates taking possession

of the land no later than June 1, 2014, the staff memo said.

Other matters

In other council news, an agreement for an on-site NAPA parts center at the Shier-Rings Road service center was approved last week. “The operations of this center would include a full-time NAPA employee to handle all part research, acquisition, distribution and inventory control, freeing up time for the city’s technicians and fleet administrator,” the staff report to council states. According to the agreement, Dublin would be billed monthly for parts and services. City Manager Marsha Grigsby said the agreement will also give the city a better price on parts than the current state contract. “We wanted employees to be free to do their job instead of running around (for parts),” she said. Michelle Crandall, director of administrative services, said the city plans to ask Dublin City Schools if they want to use the parts center as well. The district’s fleet is kept next door to the service center on ShierRings Road. A few council members voiced concerns regarding accountability and the safety of the parts. “Keep an eye on this,” Michael Keenan said.

Alcohol purchase leads police to robbery suspect A Kroger Plus card and credit card led to the arrest of a 31-year-old Hilliard woman in connection with the robbery of the Kroger Pharmacy at 7100 Hospital Drive at 12:20 a.m. March 20. According to Dublin Division of Police reports, a woman robbed the Kroger Pharmacy of pain killers and anxiety medication with a threatening note March 20.

Metal detectors now in use at court, council meetings By JENNIFER NOBLIT THISWEEKNEWS.COM

Be prepared to empty your pockets for Dublin City Council. The public must now pass through a magnetometer, or metal detector, and bag check to get into Dublin City Council meetings and Mayor’s Court. Dublin Police Chief Heinz von Eckartsberg said the metal detectors were recommended in last year’s security audit and requested by council. The new units were introduced at the March 19 Mayor’s Court and March 25 City Council meetings. “We have them before council and mayor’s court right now, but it may be expanded in the future,” von Eckartsberg said.

Dublin City Council meetings have been staffed with a Dublin police officer since last year. “What government building doesn’t have this now,” von Eckartsberg said. The new metal detectors scan the public for weapons. Pepper spray and pocket knives are included in the list of banned items and should be left at home or in the car, city officials said. The metal detectors were purchased by the city with funds from the capital improvement budget. According to von Eckartsberg, $20,000 was budgeted for the purchase of the portable equipment, but only $12,400 was spent for both detectors and related equipment. The 2013 budget also

included $14,000 for a one-year contract with Contemporary Services Corp. to staff the metal detectors before council meetings and mayor’s court as well as a few community events. “It’s the same company we use for the Dublin Irish Festival and Fourth of July,” von Eckartsberg said. Dublin’s police chief doesn’t anticipate using the entire $14,000 budgeted for Contemporary Services , however, because the metal detectors were not in service in January or February. The new metal detectors will not always be in place at the municipal building and justice center. The units are portable and will be removed after each meeting, von Eckartsberg said.

The bicycle ambassador program will return for a second year with 30 current members and an April 13 training to recruit at least 10 more. The bicycle ambassador program was started last year to help residents on Dublin’s multi-use trails, an effort created by the Bicycle Advisory Task Force. “It’s really great when a whole team from so many work units come together: the police, parks (department) and Washington Township,” said Christine Nardecchia, Dublin’s volunteer resources administrator. “Last year was the launch of the bicycle ambassadors with 30 volunteers,” she said. Akira Okamoto, one of Dublin’s 30 bicycle “They really were helpful sets of eyes and ambassadors rides along one of the city’s ears out on the pathways,” Nardecchia said. many bike paths.

Just thinking

‘Stench monsters’? Loopy copywriters come up with doozy Had my husband not read the back of his stick deodorant, he might have continued his life journey unaware of atomic robots and masculine scent elves. He might have been just as happy, too, but that’s beside the point. As it happens, he glanced at the back of his almostempty Old Spice container, expecting to see words such as dipropylene glycol and sodium stearate, but instead, he saw this: “Contains odor-fighting ‘atomic robots’ that ‘shoot lasers’ at your ‘stench monsters’ and replaces them with fresh, clean, masculine ‘scent elves.’ ” The single quote marks are all theirs, I want to say right off. I suppose they represent the writers’ attempt to wink at customers, thus making readers complicit in the joke. Still, they don’t belong. Quote marks scattered like grass seed hardly ever do. But about the paragraph itself: Seeing it on the details side of a drugstore product has caused both my husband and me to question nearly everything we once took for granted: Science. The Consumers Union. Truth in advertising. The people at Procter & Gamble whose job it is to proofread product containers before they’re loaded onto trucks. Perhaps assuming that such people exist is assuming too much. We’ve been struggling through an economic downturn, and although I for one think the economy is finally headed in the right direction, it’s possible that no one has been editing P&G product labels since early 2008. It’s possible, too, that the college valedictorians hired to write such prose as “Pure Sport High Endurance Deodorant” got a little silly one day. Maybe it was Friday afternoon. It doesn’t matter now, of course. All that matters now is what the people at P&G plan to do about this fey description of poor Old Spice. Will they defend the stench monsters and the scent elves with all that they are and all that they have? Will they bring out their crisis management team, armed with charts, graphs and PowerPoints showing the ratio of robots to monsters and monsters to elves?

Or will someone designated by upper-level P&G suits face the bank of reporters, microphones MARGO and cameras to explain BARTLETT that these four lines of copy should not have been allowed to leave the factory? I can hear a quasiapology now: “If some of our customers are offended by the words inadvertently printed on our Old Spice containers, we’re sorry,” the spokesperson might say. To be honest, I’m not offended. I’m surprised, puzzled and confused. I’m even amused, as I’m sure I was supposed to be, but offended? Nah. I do get a little funny around the mouth when apologies sound like accusations, though: “If some of our customers (are so uptight as to say they) are offended by the words inadvertently (mistakes happen!) printed on our Old Spice containers, we’re sorry (you’re such a grouch).” That’s what many public apologies sound like to me. So should P&G feel the need to explain anything, I suggest it man up and say “Holy smoke! Our faces are so red! That’s why we’re sending a big pile of money to the central Ohio person who – .” No. We wouldn’t accept a reward even if one was offered. My husband was happy to read something ludicrous early in the morning, and of course I can’t claim credit at all. Besides, I’m sure this incident is no goof. I think it’s Procter & Gamble’s deliberate attempt to set itself apart: Look! We invented scent elves! Struggling actors who played Old Spice atomic robots and stench monsters in national television commercials probably have been pocketing residuals for months. If the spots don’t air during Jeopardy!, I wouldn’t see them. But that’s OK, because I had the fun of reading the book, or rather, the plastic container. And I read on, too, all the way to tetrasodium edta, which looked to me exactly like a word spelled backward. Have you had your atde muidosartet today? Write to Margo Bartlett at

As it were

Home reached out to city’s ‘fallen women’ It was a concern that simply would not go away: What was Columbus to do with its “fallen women”? It certainly was not a new concern. Ever since Columbus was established by the Ohio General Assembly as the new state capital in 1812, there had always been a few local residents who made their living on the other side of the law. Early in the city’s history, when the boundaries of the town ended at Nationwide Boulevard, a criminal gang led by a man named Jones established itself on Cleveland Avenue near what is now Fort Hayes. In due course, local residents played a bit of the vigilante and drove the rascals out of town. Over the years, local histories would find references to gamblers, confidence men, thieves, pickpockets and fallen ladies. But in a town of only 5,000 or even 10,000 people, there were not all that many of these people. Small towns can support only a limited amount of vice. But the Civil War changed everything. Columbus, a town of 18,000 people, found itself playing host to Camp Chase. The camp was a mobilization and training center for about 25,000 soldiers of the Union Army. As might be imagined, all of those virile young men in one place attracted the atten-


tion of a rather large number of ladies. Many of them made their living in ways that were neither very legal

nor very moral. With the end of the war, the upstanding residents of Columbus thought that maybe, just maybe, the bad folks would leave town with the departing soldiers. It was not to be the case. Columbus at the end of the Civil War found itself to be a railroad hub and a major center of transportation and trade. With that economic success came continuing problems with vice and crime. On Dec. 3, 1869, a number of local ladies gathered to discuss how they might help the “fallen women” of Columbus. After research and observation, the group decided that what was needed in Columbus was “a house of Reform in this city.” A later account related how they ladies went to work: “Soliciting a dollar here and five dollars there, asking for help from the churches, the women went ahead and rented a house at 346 East Rich Street.” The Woman’s Home had a number of interesting early residents. “One girl, Fanny, was

taken from the penitentiary to the home, but she was too homesick to stay and was placed on the cars to go to her friends.” Another was the case of a girl “to secure whom, the committee had spent two days. She was taken to the Home, but made her escape from a window the first night of her stay.” Learning from these examples, the home put stern rules in place. The rules were prominently posted when the home moved to a new location at 171 E. Rich St. a few years later: • No girl shall be received who does not show a sincere desire and purpose to lead a new and virtuous life. • She shall promise on being admitted to the Home to remain as long as the Committee on Admission think best for her good. • She shall promise to try faithfully, with the help of God, to keep all of the rules of the Home. • She shall resolve as far as possible to forget her former life. The Rules for Conduct were lengthy and stringent. A sampling of the first few will give an idea of their scope and content: • She shall not at any time talk to the other girls, about, or in any way allude to her past life of sin. • She shall not use profane, impure or improper language.

• She shall be careful to speak the truth at all times, and try in no way to deceive. The list goes on at considerable length and in some detail. The home had its successes. Some of the girls who stayed for a time left their former way of life and went on to some personal success. The minutes of the home noted in May 1873 that “Jennie, the first girl admitted to the Home has also been to see Mrs. Desellum (the matron). She has married well and is living a virtuous life.” There were disappointments as well – girls who left the home and returned to their lessthan-respectable ways. But for each of them, there was also a Jennie with a virtuous life. The work of the woman’s home continued until June 1873. This is not surprising, since the Panic of 1873 at that time sent the entire country into a deep economic depression. A number of good organizations did not survive. But the success of the woman’s home was not forgotten. Over the years since 1873, a number of other Columbus organizations have stepped up to help women in moral as well as social need. Their good work complements the pioneering work of the “Ladies of 1869.” Local historian and author Ed Lentz writes the As it were column for ThisWeek News.

Snow removal costs topped $1 million By JENNIFER NOBLIT THISWEEKNEWS.COM Last week’s spring snow storm could mark the end of an above-average snowfall accumulation winter. Dublin used more than twice as much salt this winter as it did in the winter of 2011-12 to keep roads safe for drivers. Bill Grubagh, acting director of streets and utilities, estimated Dublin received 30 to 40 inches of snow during the 201213 winter. “That’s a little above average,� he said. Last winter was especially mild and Dublin used 3,319 tons of salt.

To keep roads clear this winter, crews put down 7,049 tons on Dublin roads, Grubagh said. “We had enough (salt) but we exhausted what we budgeted for,� he said. “We always carry some salt from the year previous. We’ve used the carryover plus what we had budgeted for this year.� The city budgeted $390,540 to purchase salt for 2013, less than the $516,420 budgeted in 2012. With salt and labor, Grubagh estimated about $1 million has been spent to clean up this winter’s mess. “We had a pretty rough winter with between 30 and 40 inches,� he said. “We


“It’s really for people who enjoy biking and assisting fellow citizens who might get turned around on the path.� In addition to serving as assistance, bicycle ambassadors also encourage safe cycling and help with trail maintenance. “They take photos of maintenance issues and send them into staff,� Nardecchia said. “After the late June storm it was such a great thing to be able to call on them with a text.� Charissa Fuller hasn’t encountered any lost cyclists yet, but she is working to make cycling safer in the community as a bicycle ambassador. “As a trained bicycle ambassador, I promoted bicycle safety on Dublin’s many bicycle trails by encouraging our youth to

wear bicycle helmets and (closed-toed) shoes and by setting an example by actually stopping at the posted stop signs on our trails,� Fuller said. Rick Weininger tries to get out on his bike as often as possible, but as Karrer Middle School principal it’s sometimes tough. He said he usually makes it out at least once a week, though, a requirement for bicycle ambassadors. “The biggest thing I feel, as a member of the Bicycle Advisory Task Force, is moving us forward as a bicycle-friendly community,� Weininger said. “We’re taking baby steps to try to make things better for our community and making sure people feel comfortable,� he said. “The bicycle ambassador program is a piece of that ... . The biggest thing is awareness

had a lot of hours fighting snow and ice. “Some of the smaller storms cost as much as clearing larger storms... . (The cost to remove) total snow and ice this year is just over $1 million spent for labor, materials and equipment.� With warmer, 50-degree weather in the forecast, Dublin could finally be done with an extended winter. “I think in my own personal view, it’s been drawn out,� Grubagh said. “We first experienced snow Oct. 30 and then had this roller coaster in November and December,� he said. “We had the first major snow Dec. 26 and behind that a couple of significant storms.�

Hall of Fame to induct six more people May 4

A former superintendent and alumni who died in the line of duty will soon join the Dublin Alumni Association’s Hall of Fame. The Dublin Alumni Association’s Hall of Fame will induct six new members at a May 4 ceremony at the Columbus Marriott Northwest, 5605 Blazer Pkwy. “It is our pleasure to celebrate and recognize this year’s inductees for their accomplishments,” said David Axner, Dublin City School District superintendent. “The Hall of Fame Selection Committee continues to do an excellent job of selecting deserving graduates

and contributors to our district for induction into our hall of fame,” Axner said. The alumni hall of fame was created in 2008 to recognize Dublin City School District graduates who have made great achievements and district staff who have had a major impact on the schools. More than 50 people have been inducted into the hall of fame so far. The 2013 inductees are: • Former Dublin City Schools Superintendent Steve Anderson, who led the district from 1995 to 2002. Anderson also served in other administrative positions in the dis-

trict and after leaving the district became an educational consultant, speaker and presenter. • Allergist and 1991 Dublin High School graduate Scott Bagenstose. As a doctor, Bagenstose is the president of the Ohio Allergy Society and was one of five recipients in the country of a GlaxoSmithKline award. • Dublin High School 1963 graduate Karen Boerger, who retired as a principal after 24 years in education. Boerger currently does speaking engagements and has authored books about family caregiving. She also founded the Caring Hearts Ministry that helps provide stress and

coping techniques to caregivers. • Neuroscientist and 2000 Dublin Coffman High School graduate Julie Marie Brooks. As a post-doctoral fellow in the Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology at the University of Maryland, Brooks researches schizophrenia and has authored many research articles about the topic. • Coffman High School class of 1998 member Capt. Aaron Burger. Burger is a West Point graduate and received a Bronze Star for his service in Iraq. • Capt. Nicholas Rozanski, a 1994 Dublin High School graduate.

Rozanski was killed last April while serving in the 1st Battalion, 148th Infantry Regiment of the 37th Infantry Brigade Combat Team in Afghanistan. Rozanski also spent a lot of his free time coaching youth soccer. The Hall of Fame induction ceremony will be held in conjunction with a dinner for the 50-year class of 1963 at 6 p.m. May 4. The ceremony is open to the public, but reservations are required and can be completed by calling 614-7604362. Tickets can also be purchased at the Dublin Barbershop, 24 S. High St.

Tykes take to Coffman students put their trikes to trick-out own mark on Broadway classic their playground


Dublin Coffman High School is taking on its most challenging musical yet. West Side Story will take the stage at Coffman High School at 7 p.m. April 10-13. Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for seniors and students. The story of love, loyalty and violence is proving to be a challenge in music and moves. But after Coffman High School theater teacher and production director Dan Stowell saw the Broadway Across America show with about 60 students last summer, he knew the group was up to the challenge. Stowell also saw a few things in the national production he wanted to change. “I love the story and the music, but I wanted to do things differently,” he said. Among the changes are bringing the story to the audience; Maria’s fire escape is in the audience and the Jets and Sharks make appearances out among the audience. Bringing a soul to the Jets was also in Stowell’s vision. The Broadway show played the group gritty and nasty and Stowell sees them as lost boys using violence to find a place in the world. “It’s got some intense issues,” said senior Lindsey Welch, who stars as Maria. “When Mr. Stowell explained it to us, it’s like the gangs are boys who are lost,” Welch said. “They’re using violence to deal with those issues. It makes them more human.” Junior Elizabeth Blanquera, who also plays Maria, said the best part of the play comes after a tragedy. “My favorite song is definitely ‘I Have a Love’ after she finds out Tony killed her brother because she loves him anyways,” she said. “It’s the most beautiful piece of music.” Both the live orchestra and actors

the same as the Broadway version, but still capture the meaning and spirit of the show. “It’s so iconic,” Choreographer Meghan Western said of the show. “We have to come up with new choreography that isn’t the same, but still speaks to the same intent.” Students have been catching on quickly. “They’ve been doing an excellent job,” Western said, adding a few dance workshops were held during the summer in anticipation of the show. “They’ve been working hard.” Students have also been working with professional fight choreographer Jason Speicher on the rumbles. “It’s amazing that he comes up with something that looks impulsive,” Lewe said.

have been challenged by the music, Stowell said. “The music is very intense,” Junior Maggie Pfeifer, who plays Anita said. “It’s made us get better and rise to the level of the show.” “We’re singing with a live orchestra and the songs are very emotional so they don’t have a strict beat,” said Senior Bobby Lewe, who plays Tony. “It’s something I haven’t had to deal with before, but it works.” Choreography has been a challenge, especially creating moves that aren’t

Dublin Community Preschoolers will pedal their way to new playground equipment later this month. Dublin Community Preschool will hold the second annual Trike-a-Thon the week of April 22, raising money and awareness for safety on the playground. “The Trike-a-Thon is part of how Dublin Community Preschool recognizes National Playground Safety week, which runs the week of April 22,” said Julie Turner, preschool director. “During that week we take the opportunity to communicate with parents and students about outdoor safety for children,” Turner said. “It’s timely because usually the weather breaks and kids are outside.” Students collect pledges or flat donations for the Trike-aThon that will benefit the playgrounds. “It’s a good time for us as a preschool to replace worn out or broken outdoor equipment and make sure it’s safe for kids,” Turner said. The inaugural Trike-a-Thon raised $4,200, said Jenny Rozanski, a preschool employee who is helping to arrange the Trike-a-Thon this year. She hopes to raise at least that much again. “The goal is to at least match what we did last year and help with expenses to get replacement bikes and doing playground safety upkeep,” she said. The money raised last year went to replacing some of the equipment used in the Trikea-Thon and out on the playground, Turner said. “We replaced a number of tricycles and outdoor ride toys,” she said. “It funded all new

helmets.” Where the money goes this year has yet to be determined. “We will be looking at overall safety,” Turner said. “We have two playgrounds: a bike playground and side playground with traditional equipment,” she said. “We’re looking at the safety of the slide playground and address any safety issues there. “We’ll be replacing worn out ride toys and looking at helmets. All the equipment we use outside will be prioritized.” About 260 children will be involved in the Trike-a-Thon and riding laps based on their ages. Five-year-olds, for example, will ride the furthest with 11 laps. In addition to physical activity, the week will also address safety education. “We’re tying it into National Playground Safety week and involve the city of Dublin Police Department,” Turner said. “Officers will be coming into classrooms and reading books with children on outdoor safety and show playground safety videos.” Safety will also be addressed with parents at 7 p.m. April 24 when Steve Locker of Locker Soccer Academy talks safety and physical activity. The event is open to the public and child care will be available. “He is leading a parent dis-

Experiences in Peace Academy program eye-openers for Nagata By JENNIFER NOBLIT THISWEEKNEWS.COM

Rather than starting college, Yuka Nagata is spending a year with the Generation Peace Academy. The 18-year-old former Dublin Coffman High School student joined the nonprofit academy in August for nine months of leadership, service work and learning more about faith through the Holy Spirit Association for the Unification of World Christianity program. Nagata learned about the academy through her brother, a 2011 graduate of Coffman High School and Tolles Technical and Career Center. “When my brother came back I was inspired by the experience he had,” Nagata said. “I wanted to take a year to

Announcing 2014 plans Tim and Karen Seils of Hilliard announce the engagement of their daughter, Ashley, to Alex Walls, son of Richard and Glenda Walls of Knoxville, Tenn. The bride-to-be graduated from Hilliard Darby High School and Bowling Green State University. She is employed as a teacher. Her fiance graduated from Virginia High School in Bristol, Va., and the University of Tennessee. He is employed as a teacher and high school football coach. The wedding will take place June 28, 2014, in Dublin. Alex Walls and Ashley Seils

Residing in Australia Bethany Davis, daughter of Mark and Susan Davis of Abingdon, Va., was married to Jonathan Avery, son of Ed and Laurie Avery of Upper Arlington, on Dec. 31, 2012, in Asheville, N.C. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. Eddie Morgan. Bridesmaids were Allison Weber, sister of the groom; Sara Gillespie, Christine Driscoll, Sarah Gillespie andAnnaApostolopoulos. Groomsmen were Douglas Avery and Harry Avery, brothers of the groom; Ben Davis, brother of the bride; James Knight and Parker Sheppard. The bride received a bachelor’s degree from Vanderbilt University and a master’s degree from Georgia State University.

“I really enjoy singing and playing music, but when I came to St. Lucia I was nervous to share it because people there are very musically talented,” she said. When asked to sing, Nagata said she was nervous, but when she finally did, everyone was encouraging. “During this year I’ve been really invested in not calling out the negatives of the people around me and myself,” she said. “I’ve learned to be myself. I’m pretty shy.” Now that Nagata is back in the states, she will spend the rest of her time in the Generation Peace Academy in Boston studying the Bible and Unification Church. Once she’s done, Nagata plans to return to Dublin, a place she hasn’t been in a while. Nagata spent two years in another Unification Church program and graduated a year early through homeschooling and did volunteer work for a year. “I’ll go back home for good,” Nagata said of her future plans. “I’ve been away for a few years.” In addition to spending time with her family, Nagata plans to work and take early childhood development classes at Columbus State Community College.

our own community,” Nagata said. Fundraising was also done for a two-week service trip to St. Lucia, an island in the Caribbean Sea near Barbados. “People there were really welcoming and so excited to see us,” Nagata said. “One thing I really enjoyed doing was volunteering with elementary school kids. We walked into the classroom and taught them arts and crafts.” Nagata’s group also helped with a beach cleanup, painted and renovated six houses and spent time with a Catholic youth group in the area. Seeing life at St. Lucia made Nagata thankful for everything she has. “Everyone in America has so much to be thankful for,” she said. “I was so amazed by the pride they had for their country even though they lack opportunities,” Nagata said of the St. Lucia residents. “We have so much opportunity here with universities and colleges. I’m really happy to be part of this program before going off to college.” Nagata said she also learned to come out of her shell on the trip.

‘Dramatic’ changes set to be unveiled at Tucci’s


Tucci’s California Bistro is expected to open this week after extensive renovations. The Historic Dublin restaurant at 35 N. High St. has been closed for about three weeks and owner Craig Barnum said returning customers might not recognize the place when it tentatively reopens at 4 p.m. April 5. “It’s pretty dramatic,” he said. “We’re going for more fine dining.” In the dining room, lighting, a new white marble bar and new seating are among the changes. “One of the challenges we had was the atmosphere of the restaurant was comfortable and bistro style,” Barnum said. “The tables were in rows. One of the challenges I had with the restaurant was it lacked intimacy of a fine dining atmosphere you need in a restaurant like that,” he said. Better lighting was added along with two-person booths in the bar and many tables were removed from the dining room. “In the dining room we went with a lot more booths,” Barnum said.

“Tucci’s is in the middle of the development and we wanted to position ourselves and put money into it to be one of a kind for the foreseeable future.” – CRAIG BARNUM

Tucci’s California Bistro owner

Ceiling tiles that help with the acoustics were also installed in the dining room, as was a new roof for the former house that was built in the 1940s. On the menu customers will also notice something different. “We removed the pizza oven,” Barnum said. “We’re not going to be serving pizzas anymore. “When we reopen, we’ll be heavy on fresh fish, pasta and steaks,” Barnum said. Three new cuts of steaks have been added to the menu, lending the restaurant options from a traditional steak house. One of the biggest renovations for Tucci’s, however,

might not be immediately recognized by customers. “One of the major things was to change the kitchen,” Barnum said. “Over the last few years the patio has gotten popular.” he said The kitchen often scrambled to keep up with demand from the 100-seat patio, he said. “The kitchen was undermanned, there was not enough equipment, it wasn’t big enough,” Barnum said. “We put in new equipment, a new hood, a better prep area and line to handle the business we do from May to October.” New signs will also be installed at the back of the building where customers enter from the Darby Street parking lot and along High Street. The changes, Barnum said, will help Tucci’s adapt to the transformation coming to Historic Dublin through the Bridge Street District that seeks to bring a more-dense, walkable, urban-style development in Dublin’s core. “Tucci’s is in the middle of the development and we wanted to position ourselves and put money into it to be one of a kind for the foreseeable future,” Barnum said.

Walk Across America

Trek intended to raise funds for cancer research By ANDREW MILLER THISWEEKNEWS.COM

Groveport resident Diane Factor is looking forward to a visit from her brother sometime in the next few weeks. Then they’ll both hit the road: Her brother, Dave Brown, is walking across the United States via U.S. Routes 40 and 50 to commemorate his late wife, Joan Chermack Brown, and raise money for ovarian cancer research. Factor plans to join him in his trek through Ohio.

Brown, a Newark native, began his walk Feb. 28 in Atlantic City. The 61-year-old has been averaging about 14 miles a day since leaving the coast and will have covered about 3,000 miles total by the time he reaches San Francisco. He has been faithfully recording photos and anecdotes from each day’s walk and posting them on his website, Factor said Brown’s schedule would have him traversing across Ohio from March 29 through April 14. She looks

forward to cheering him on and walking with him, she said. “We both grew up in Newark,” she said. “Dave graduated from Newark Catholic High School, and our mom, Leola Brown, and brother, Dan Brown, both still live there. “He’s hoping to raise awareness and money for research – $100,000 total – and we’re hoping that his native state will be particularly supportive of his efforts as he walks through Ohio.” Brown is collecting dona-

tions online and via check in memory of his deceased wife for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. Thus far, he has raised about $10,000 toward the $100,000 goal. Factor said that along with the donations, her brother has been very thankful for the offers of lodging as he crosses the country; she said he’s had to stay in a motel only one night thus far, thanks to everyone’s generosity and support. Although the project seemed overly ambitious at first, she said, she soon real-

ized that if anyone could do it, her brother could, and she quickly agreed to support him. “After Joan died in 2011, he told us about this idea, and I said, ‘That’s a long time, and 3,000 miles is a long way,’ but after it settled in, I agreed it was a wonderful thing for him to do,” Factor said. “Both Dave and Joan were members of the American Volkssport Association, a walking club that they did a lot of events with before she died, so it makes sense he’d want to do this. “Joan was such a wonderful person, and they were both avid walkers who had about 30 great years together.” According to Factor, Joan Brown received a clean checkup in February 2011 before suddenly falling ill in April. She succumbed in August 2011. “It’s such a scary disease

and easy to miss the signs, so part of what Dave is doing is passing out educational information on cards along the way,” Factor said. Brown wrote on his website that his wife had asked him to do something to help educate women about ovarian cancer. He refers to her as “the love of my life.” “Before she passed away from the dreaded disease, she told me if there was anything that I could do to use her experience to help other women with ovarian cancer, she was for it,” he wrote. “This is the reason for the walk.” Information about ovarian cancer, daily travel updates, donations, providing lodging or Brown’s walking route are available on his website or by emailing

Athletes of the Year

Area’s best highlight winter sports season From staff reports

meet Feb. 23 and placed ninth on the balance beam (9.025) in the individual state meet March 2. At state, she placed 18th in the all-around (35.0), 19th on uneven bars (8.65) and 31st on both floor exercise (8.5) and vault (8.825). At district, she placed second on beam (9.375) and tied for second on vault (9.225). Miltko also won all-around titles in the McGee Invitational on Jan. 12 and Sweeney-Smith Invitational on Jan. 26. “She held her composure (at state) like she has all year,” coach Misty Lloyd-Matthews said. “She almost was undefeated in the duals and big invitationals. She has an amazing attitude, amazing composure and was an amazing team leader. She’s supportive of her teammates and all around just has the full package of a true competitor. ... This year was special for her.”

As another sports season has ended, it’s time to announce the winter Athletes of theYear. The wrestling and girls and boys basketball honorees were captains of the previously announced Super 12 teams. Here are the winter honorees:

Chris Bergamesca HOCKEY Bergamesca helped lead Olentangy Liberty to its second state appearance in three seasons and a league championship. The junior forward led the Patriots with 46 assists and 84 points and was second on the team with 38 goals. He was named first-team all-Capital Hockey Conference and firstteam all-CHC-Red Division. “Chris can just take over a game whenever he wants,” Liberty assistant coach Mike Battaglia said. “We were trailing by two goals (Jan. 27) at (Dublin) Jerome and Chris scored three goals in the final three minutes (of the third period) in a 4-2 win. For him to do that in a big game like that, at their rink and on their senior night, says everything about him.” Liberty, which was ranked eighth in the final state poll and was the top seed in the district, finished 26-6-5-1 overall and won the CHC-Red at 15-0-1-1. The Patriots beat Jerome 4-3 in overtime in the district final March 2 before losing to Sylvania Northview 4-2 in a state semifinal March 8 at Nationwide Arena.

Noah Forrider WRESTLING Forrider, a senior, not only became Marysville’s fourth state champion, but he also rewrote its record book. Forrider capped his chase of a state title by defeating Madison’s Nick Montgomery 5-4 in the Division I final at 138 pounds March 2 at Ohio State. Forrider, who finished the season 49-0, became the Monarchs’ career leader in wins, surpassing the 163 of 2010 graduate Jake McCombs. The four-time state placer finished 169-24. “I’m just so proud of the kid,” coach Shawn Andrews said. “As good of a wrestler as he is, he’s a better person. He worked really hard to get (his state title). ...We’re going to miss him a ton and right now we’re just really proud of him.” Forrider, who also won sectional and district titles, was named Wrestler of the Year in the OCC-Central Division, as Marysville won the league title

at 7-0. “There’s no secrets: Just working hard every day, applying yourself every day in practice and going out there and getting it done and believing in yourself,” said Forrider, who will wrestle at Ohio University. He helped the Monarchs place fifth (58.5) at state behind champion St. Edward (117) as 89 teams scored.

Gracie Long GIRLS SWIMMING & DIVING The Upper Arlington sophomore helped her team’s 200yard freestyle relay win the Division I state championship in a meet-record 1 minute, 34.19 seconds and placed second in both the 100 free (49.85) and 200 free (1:48.63). The Golden Bears finished second (215) to Cincinnati Ursuline (234) for the team title, ending their streak of consecutive state championships at eight. Long, who teamed with Erin Sheehan, Jenny Smith and Grace Van Fossen on the 200 free relay, also helped the 400 free relay place second (3:26.7) at state and won district titles in the 100 free (50.3) and 200 free (district-record 1:48.21). “Grace Long just continues to work hard to be successful,” coach Dan Peterkoski said. “Each of the last two years, Grace has made great strides in becoming a better trainer. I think this year the dryland component of her training really improved. “Grace is extremely competitive and is very driven to be successful. She has a long

GIRLS BASKETBALL Even when she was in elementary school, this Northland senior refused to get used to losing. “I used to always play with boys until I was in about fourth grade,” Peterson said. “I’ve never been somebody who liked to lose. When I was younger, I was a really bad loser actually.” She believes that attitude helped transform her into central Ohio’s top player the last two seasons. Peterson, who was the district’s Player of the Year a year ago, increased her scoring average by nearly 10 points as a senior. The 5-foot-6 point guard again was named district Player of theYear and firstteam all-state honors. The Syracuse signee led central Ohio in scoring average at 28.1 points per game and scored 34 to help the Vikings defeat eventual Division I regional champion Olentangy Orange 69-59 on Dec. 10. Peterson was a four-year starter who helped Northland go 82-14 with City-North Division titles each of the last three seasons. “Without her we wouldn’t have been 18-6,” coach Dean Washington said. “I can’t think of anybody in the state who averaged 28 points, and that’s with her shooting about 50 percent from 2-point range, 44 percent from 3 and 71 percent from the foul line. She pretty much did it all for us.”

Columbus Bowl and earned allstate honors as 103 individuals competed. Singer averaged 195.2 per game during the regular season. She advanced to state by finishing second in the district tournament Feb. 23 at HP Lanes, rolling a 614 series to place behind medalist Savannah Slark (625) of Westerville Central. “(Singer’s) dad, Rod, has trained her since she was 6,” coach Connie Emlich said. “Miranda’s competitive. She wants to bowl, she wants to compete. She doesn’t want to be average.” Emlich said Singer has not picked a college, but wants to attend one with a good bowling program. “It helped that she competed against boys all year (because DeSales does not have a girls team), but a great thing for us was our boys were trying hard to compete with Miranda, too,” Emlich said. “We have two or three guys saying they want to be just like her next year.”

Jae’Sean Tate BOYS BASKETBALL After leading the Pickerington Central boys basketball team to its second consecutive Division I district title, Tate understood how his role had changed within 12 months. “Last year, I was the little brother looking up to the older guys. I was paying my dues,” he said of the Tigers’ run to the 2012 state championship. “This year, we have two freshmen (forward Jalen Tate and guard D.J. Tyree) starting. It’s quite a bit different.” Tate, a 6-foot-5 junior forward who has committed to Ohio State, averaged 21.9 points and 12 rebounds this season, as Central went 19-8, shared the OCC-Ohio Division title and lost to leaguerival Gahanna 53-50 in a regional semifinal March 14. He was first-team all-league and first-team all-district. In the postseason matchup against Gahanna, Tate had 31 points, 21 rebounds and three blocks. Tate surpassed 1,000 career points Feb. 15 and finished the season with 1,137. “His rewards are far beyond Pickerington basketball,” Central coach Jerry Francis said. “His responsibility used to be just ‘see ball, get ball.’ Now he has so many more responsibilities to find the open man, make the easy play, handle pressure, communicate, be a leader and finish around the basket. He’s done a great job with all of those things. He’s made himself a complete player.”

Wintry spring creates many challenges for teams What a difference a year can make. The sunny skies and recordsetting temperatures of last March were replaced by mostly cold, wet and snowy conditions this year. No one knows this better than the area’s high school baseball and softball coaches, who are asking themselves whether their teams can handle this weather. Last spring, those coaches sang the praises of being able to practice outside 15 to 20 times before the regular season began. To a person, they declared, “I’ve never seen anything like this.” This year’s sentiments are the same – again, it’s a spring like no other – only on the opposite end of the spectrum. Before sunny skies arrived March 28, most programs had practiced outside only two or three times. “I’ve seen snow as late as

mid-April, but it’s always gone by the next day,” said Hilliard D av i d s o n baseball SCOTT coach Jim Dougherty, HENNEN who has been a head coach for 32 seasons. “But (this spring) it has stayed cold and damp for so long, the ground never gets a chance to dry out.” Spending most of the preseason practicing indoors in a gymnasium definitely will have a major impact on the field in the first couple weeks of the season, at least until the teams are outdoors with regularity. Early on, expect several areas of the game to be deficient. Look for an advantage going to the pitchers over the

hitters. Hitting off pitching machines might help with a batter’s timing, but it’s not the same as a ball thrown outdoors. The ball reacts differently to humidity, wind conditions and moisture from a misty afternoon. Hitters will need time to make adjustments. Also, pitchers have the advantage of being able to build arm strength while throwing indoors. When teams are able to practice outside, pitchers sometimes are working on fielding as much as

double plays will be tougher on second basemen and shortstops who have never played together before. An advantage in that area will go to players with previous varsity experience. Look for some of the basic fundamentals to be affected as well. Little things like taking the extra base, throwing to the appropriate base or hitting the cut-off man may take time because of the lack of outdoor practices.

The U16 Crew Academy squad recently tied Sockers FC 1-1 in Chicago on a goal from Javier Meneses-Wallace. The team is sixth (66-5, 23 points) in the USSDA Central Conference.

throwing to the plate. Look for defensive play to be subpar in the first couple weeks of the season. Fielding grounders on a gym floor is much different from doing it outdoors. The ball reacts differently on the grass or dirt than on a smooth, waxed floor devoid of errant stones that can cause a bad hop. Plus, outfielders must have an opportunity to get outside and judge a few fly balls, which is difficult to practice inside. Also, defensive positioning is different in a gym. Turning

Schedules Carpenter takes over at Scioto

Scioto has a new coach in Ken Carpenter. He replaced Patrick Elias, who resigned last summer. Carpenter coached at Buckeye Valley the past 15 years and entered this season with 261 career wins. He was the Division II district Coach of the Year in 2003 and was the junior varsity coach at Coffman in 1997. “I’m thrilled to get a chance to coach in Dublin and be a part of a great community and be around some players that are just a blast,” Carpenter said. He took over a team that finished 10-14 last season after losing to Olentangy 9-1 in the first round of the Division I district tournament. Scioto opened March 30 by splitting a doubleheader with UA at home. After losing 3-2 in 10 innings, the Irish won 40. “It was great to get that first win,” Carpenter said. “We felt like we played good enough to walk away with two wins.” Carpenter expects senior Aaron Strausbaugh (P/SS) and juniors Max O’Connell (P/1B) and Matthew Messick (P/SS/2B) to lead the pitching staff. Strausbaugh won the second game against UA, allowing four hits, striking out five and walking none in a complete-game effort. Last season, Strausbaugh

batted .333 with 11 RBI and 19 runs and was second-team all-league and honorable mention all-district. Others with starting experience are seniors Riley Bush (1B/P/OF) and Matthew Vogel (LF) and sophomore Nick Conner (OF/P). Last season, Conner hit .278 with 12 RBI and 10 runs and was second-team all-league. Other players are seniors Carl Kubalak (C/3B), Jacob Nave (2B), Adam Padovan (C), Brayden Pfeiffer (P), Nathan Reiser (OF) and Austin Troyer (P), juniors Brad Dinan (3B) and Spencer Talentino (OF) and freshman Ryan Keel (C/utility). The Irish lost eight starters from a year ago to graduation, including Austin Mooney (C/P/1B) and Kris Simonton (utility). Mooney batted .449 with 27 RBI and was first-team allleague and all-district. Simonton hit .414 with 14 RBI and was first-team allleague and second-team alldistrict. Scioto went 6-7 in the OCCCardinal to finish seventh behind Olentangy (10-4), Jerome (9-5), Marysville (85), Westerville North (8-6), Liberty (7-7) and Westerville Central (7-7) and ahead of Westerville South (0-14). The league now consists of Scioto, Jerome Darby, Hilliard Bradley, Kilbourne, Westerville Central, Westerville North and Westerville South. Scioto’s league opener is

Monday, April 8, at Westerville Central. “We’re going to be competitive and we’re going to go out and play hard every game and that’s all you can ask of them,” Carpenter said. “We just have some things that we have to figure out and make some adjustments.”

Jerome seeking OCC-Cardinal title

After finishing second in the OCC-Cardinal last season, Jerome has set its sights on winning the league title. “I believe we’re one of the top teams out there, along with Hilliard Darby,” ninth-year coach Chris Huesman said. “In such a tough league we have to be ready to play every day.” Jerome opened against Olentangy on April 2. Its league opener is Monday, April 8, against visiting Bradley. Returning players include seniors Masashi Sakamoto (OF/P), Tom Coon (3B/P) and Kyle Lento (C). Sakamoto batted .362 with two home runs, 17 RBI and 15 runs and was first-team allleague and honorable mention all-district last season. He also went 5-4 with a 1.34 ERA and 39 strikeouts in 57 1/3 innings. Coon batted .263 with two home runs, 19 RBI and 12 runs and was second-team allleague. Lento hit .306 with nine RBI and 16 runs and was secondteam all-league. Also back are senior Colin

The coach’s son, he is playing at the University of Dayton. After a first-round bye in last year’s Division I district tournament and defeating Liberty 6-5 in the second round, the Celtics lost to third-seeded Gahanna 5-1 in a district semifinal.

ing year,” Muessig said. “I have a lot of question marks. We have five starting positions open, so there’s a lot of competition this year. It’s a good freshman class.” Last season in the OCC-Cardinal Division, Jerome went 58 to finish sixth behind Olentangy Liberty (12-2), Westerville North (10-3), Marysville (9-5), Westerville South (8-6) and Westerville Central (6-7) and ahead of Olentangy (3-10) and Scioto (1-13). The league now consists of Jerome, Scioto, Hilliard Bradley, Hilliard Darby, Westerville Central, Westerville North, Westerville South and Worthington Kilbourne. Jerome’s league opener is Monday, April 8, at home against Bradley.

Scioto looking to bounce back

After winning three of its first seven games last season, Scioto struggled to a 6-18 finish. The Irish lost to Groveport 7-1 in the first round of the Division I district tournament. Second-year coach Larry Howell is hoping for improvement. “We’re still young and green,” he said. “We’ll be improved, but in the league we play in it’s going to be tough. We have Westerville South, Westerville North, Westerville Central (and) this year Hilliard Bradley, Hilliard Darby (and) Worthington Kilbourne, who probably should be the favorite.” Scioto openedApril 1 against Hamilton Township. Its league opener is Monday, April 8, at Central. Senior Mackenzie Nelsen again is expected to be the top pitcher and also will play shortstop. Other key returnees are seniors Marissa Gibson (3B/OF) and Taylor Martin (SS/P) and junior Kelsey Esterline (OF/SS). Other players are juniors Kaitlyn Cameron (OF), Andi Smith (1B/OF), Abby Willman (2B)

Schedules and Abby Wittenauer (OF), sophomores Erica Herrigan (OF/P), Bailey Loew (OF), Logan McKeever (C/3B) and Kathleen O’Brien (1B) and freshmen Jade Bortz (C) and Kelsie Heasley (P/SS). “We have a good group of girls,” Howell said. “They work hard. It’s just trying to catch up with what we’re lacking as far as knowledge of the game and skill set.”

Coffman hoping to continue improvement

Coffman won four of its final eight games last season to finish 8-17 overall. The Shamrocks lost to Westerville North 1-0 in their Division I district tournament opener. “I think we’re better than last year,” said second-year coach Leah Howard, whose team openedApril 2 against Newark. “We were young last year in terms of certain areas of our team. We now have a little bit more experience and that’s going to help us.” Coffman returns nine players, including senior shortstop Megan Sutula. “I’m expecting more than last year,” she said. “We work really hard. When we go to practice we bring everything we have. We have a better connection, so that should transfer to the field.” Junior Hannah Sabatino (C/OF) was first-team all-OCCCentral and second-team alldistrict last year. Also back are seniors Kelsey Hansen (2B),Tiffany Kula (OF), Megan Mills (2B) and Meredith Mockler (OF), junior Haley Marshall (P) and sophomores Jordan Mathias (P) and Megan Stevens (P). Howard said Mathias is recovering from a fractured vertebra in her back and when she returns should again be the team’s top pitcher. Other players are senior Madison So (3B), juniors Maddie Darby (OF/1B), Kylie George (OF) and Megan Gerberick (1B), sophomores Samantha Skuce (OF), Eliza-

Lincoln convention to make first visit to Columbus At least 35 Abe Lincolns will appear at area hotel, central Ohio locales By NATE ELLIS THISWEEKNEWS.COM One of the largest collections of “Honest Abe” re-enactors will descend upon central Ohio next month when the Association of Lincoln Presenters brings its annual convention to Columbus. The Association of Lincoln Presenters will host its 19th annual convention at the Ramada Inn East Columbus, 4801 E. Broad St., April 1114. The event – which also will feature a series of local stops, including at the Ohio Statehouse, Chase Cemetery and Westgate Park in Columbus, Encore Academy in Reynoldsburg and the Ohio Historical Society – represents the first time the convention has come to Columbus.

It’s taking place here because of Lincoln’s ties to the area, as well as the efforts of this year’s convention cohosts: Bob Brugler of Worthington, John Cooper of Liberty Township near Pickerington, and Jerry Payn of Wooster. “It’s the 19th annual convention and it’s the only time this has been in Columbus,” said Cooper, 62, who has been portraying Lincoln for more than 25 years. “It moves all around and I volunteered to host it this year,” Cooper said. “I convinced the group Columbus would be a good location because of the importance of the area to Lincoln and his generals.” The association has about 150 Lincoln presenters who live throughout the United States.

As of March 21, Cooper said, 35 Lincoln presenters – including eight from Ohio – had signed on to attend the convention. The number is expected to increase as the convention dates draw near. “We try to hold conventions in places Lincoln visited or that were significant to Lincoln because of the Civil War,” Cooper said. “The purpose is to help educate ourselves and others about Lincoln. “For us Lincolns, it’s a reunion,” he said. “It’s like networking. We share experiences in our slow time, but there’s not much slow time.” Those interested in attending this year’s convention can register at The site also has a full itinerary of convention activities, including some that are open to the public. Headquartered at the Ramada Inn East Columbus, the convention will kick off

with an April 11 dinner for attendees, followed by a presentation by Lincoln’s secretary of the treasury and former Ohio Gov. Salmon Chase, portrayed by Columbus resident Monty Chase, his descendent. April 12, the group will travel to the Ohio Statehouse, where Payn will re-enact a speech given there by the former president in 1861 on his way to his inauguration. The group also will journey to Camp Chase Cemetery on Sullivant Avenue in Columbus, where 2,200 Confederate soldiers are buried. The traveling portion of the convention also will make visits to the Civil War mural in Westgate Park in Columbus, which is on the former Camp Chase site; the William Tecumseh Sherman house and museum in Lancaster; and Motts Military Museum in Groveport to view the Lincoln and Civil War memorabilia on display.


coln performers appear at one location,” Cooper said. “These are the top Lincolns in the country.” After the historical society closes at 5 p.m. April 13, there will be a special “Dinner with Lincoln,” during which each table will have at least one Lincoln. After dinner, Cooper said, guests will hear from Gen. Ulysses S. Grant and Frederick Douglass. “This is by special ticket that must be pre-ordered from the Ohio Historical Society,” Cooper said. The final convention event will be a worship service April 14 at Pickerington Church of the Nazarene, 11775 Pickerington Road. The service will begin at 10 a.m. and is open to the public. “One of the Lincolns will be preaching at the church service,” Cooper said. For more information, visit

Additionally, the group will travel to the Encore Academy of Reynoldsburg High School for dinner prior to the production of the play Our American Cousin, the play that was performed at Ford’s Theatre the night Lincoln was assassinated. “The play is a key event of the convention and it is open to the public,” Cooper said. “On April 12, all of (the convention’s) Lincolns will be there. “We’re encouraging re-enactors to come to this play in period dress ... so the audience is almost a part of this play.” Cooper said another highlight of the traveling portion of the convention will be April 13, when the Ohio Historical Society hosts each of the convention’s Lincoln presenters. During performances at 1:30 and 3:30 p.m., around eight different Lincoln presenters will cover different periods of Lincoln’s life. “This is an opportunity for people to see all the top Lin-

Random notes ■ ’Tis the springtime of the puppets in central Ohio. Starting with the Columbus Museum of Art’s exhibition “Strings Attached: The Living Tradition of Czech Puppets,” which runs through August, this unique art form will be featured in a number of avenues in the coming weeks. The Beat took in the CMA exhibit last week. “Strings Attached” chronicles the form as employed in Czech theater from the mid-1800s through modern times. As the introduction to the collection says, it misses the animation provided by a puppeteer, but the pieces themselves are brilliant and often grotesque – there is plenty on which your imagination can work, for sure. Visit Later this month, Broadway in Columbus brings the Columbus premiere of the tour of War Horse. Based on the beloved book Morpurgo by Nick Stafford, which also inspired Steven Spielberg’s Academy Award-nominated film War Horse, this play chronicles the relationship between a young boy and a horse and how they are separated by events in World War I. The story is told on stage through the spellbinding use of large-scale puppets – a remarkable depiction and application. Visit Maintaining the reverence for puppetry but telling a tale most irreverent is CATCO’s restaging of Avenue Q. The R-rated show played to sold-out crowds and had its original late-summer run extended. “We knew we wanted to bring it back, and the April timeline worked out perfectly,” said producing director Steven C. Anderson. Don’t miss the fun. Visit ■ The Salvation Army in Greater Columbus presents the 28th annual God and Country Concert Saturday, April 6, at Dublin Jerome High School.

Recording ‘Wishbone’ a fortunate move for Bobby Long Having made some hay in theAmericana/folk/singer-songwriter medium, British-born Bobby Long opted, upon relocation to New York City a couple of years ago, to go full-bore on roots and country-inflected rock ‘n’ roll. It is, on a much smaller scale, similar to Eric Clapton and the Rolling Stones – and early Beatles and Zeppelin – bringingAmerican blues music back to America. “There must be something to the idea of English bands bringing (something American) over and playing it back to you,” Long joked. “I still think I’m coming at it from the standpoint of this Englishman weirdo inAmerica, in this strange country.” How else to explain Long’s sounding like he grew up in the dusty Texas desert or the poetic eastern seaboard?

Bobby Long plays The Basement Sunday, April 7. Michael Bernard Fitzgerald opens. Tickets are $12/$15. Visit

Well, his father’s love of folk music – Pete Seeger, Arlo Guthrie, Peter Paul & Mary – coupled with his mother’s bent toward electric rock such as the

Beatles and T. Rex, made for an interesting blend that led young Long to the music of the Grateful Dead, Tom Petty and the fountainhead of country rock, Gram Parsons. “I don’t know, I’m just into that kind of music,” Long told The Beat. Which in turn helps explain why Long always felt drawn to live in the States – in NYC, specifically. “I moved to London when I was 19. I had been playing for a few years, but I just wanted to be the guitar player, to hide behind somebody. I started singing when I realized I was a bit too selfish. I was writing my own songs, so I decided I’d better be the one to sing them. “In London, I was playing four to five nights a weeks with a group of self-indulgent singer-songwriters who hate each other secretly,” Long quipped.

“I knew, when I got the opportunity, I was going to end up in New York.” Two things spurred him on. First, his song Let Me Sign turned up on the soundtrack for the original Twilight film (sung by Robert Pattinson). He welcomed the attention but insisted that the song wasn’t representative of what he was writing. Second, he “met a girl.” The support of her family has helped Long transition from one side of the Atlantic to the other. And, as noted earlier, he delved even deeper into American-roots forms. He changed again his modus operandi for his latest album, Wishbone. “I always want to push myself. I tend to draw on anything emotional that is happening at the time, but I took that and tried to do something I’d never done before, which was to write in 3:50 rock songs. Focusing on riffs and

harmonies, saying what I wanted to say and still being personal but doing it in a more concise way.” And, he acknowledged, “I wanted a chance to have the songs played on radio and be heard.” Meantime, the songs are being heard in clubs, as Long has embarked on a headline tour of NorthAmerica in support of Wishbone. “I’m really enjoying playing these songs.There’s something exciting about having new music (Wishbone has been out about six weeks now) and playing songs for people and hoping that people are going to like it.” For more from The Beat’s interview with Bobby Long, read the BeatBlog at and “Like” The Beat on Facebook at facebook. com/TWTheBeat.

Developer turns attention toward food with Toscani’s

Toscani’s Ristorante marks Joseph Pingue’s return to the restaurant business. The founder of Pingue Properties has opened the Italian restaurant at 1175 Worthington Woods Blvd. in the Worthington area. He is most certainly pleased about the quality of food. “Everything served here is from my own recipes – every detail,” said Pingue, a native of Introdacqua, Italy. “I have a lot of pride in my business,” he said. But things are still improving. “We’re expanding our menu,” Pingue said. “We’ve been adding. It’s coming along.” Toscani’s offers many familiar dishes, including chicken and veal parmesan, linguine with white clams, and spaghetti with meatballs. The menu is rounded out with soups, salads and sandwiches. Nothing currently tops $16.95. The signature dish is spezzatino d’agnello, lamb tips

ser ved over orzo tossed in a white sauce w i t h onions, garlic and mushrooms. Pingue said he’s adding housemade focaccia and gnocchi this week. “We want to accommodate our clients,” he said. “Whatever they prefer, that’s what we’ll do.” Toscani’s takes over a longvacant, 6,000-square-foot storefront that seats 100. Pingue said he will reconfigure the space to create private-dining rooms. Pingue said he’s been cooking since he was a child, but in his youth he turned his attention toward the construction business. In the mid-1970s, however, he and brother Mario owned Roman Court in Niagara Falls. That 20,000-square-foot restaurant, which had a banquet hall that could hold up to 600 people, was in business for about

10 years. “What an adventure,” Pingue said. Toscani’s is open for lunch weekdays, dinner Monday through Saturday, and closed Sunday. For more information, call 614-846-8040.

O’Nelly’s Sports Pub & Grill will take over the former Polaris Street Tavern and an adjacent storefront. The owners are first-time restaurateurs Joe and Tia Stropkai. The pub, which is expected to open in the beginning of May, takes its name from famed sportscaster Keith Jackson’s popular phrase, “Whoa, Nellie.” It will occupy 4,000 square feet of space at 8939 South Old State Road, in a shopping center on the northeast corner of South Old State and Polaris Parkway. Mr. Stropkai said the place will have sports-oriented programming, up to 16 beers on

tap and a better-than-average bar menu. “I want good-quality food, unique items,” he said.

Chef Connor Daniel O’Neill wouldn’t put candied-bacon popcorn with dried chiles on every menu. But he will at the Hubbard Grille. T h e crowd at the Short North restaurant Connor Daniel seems to be O’Neill pretty adventuresome, so O’Neill is more than happy to accommodate. “My approach here is going to be bold but very jovial. I’m not opposed to a fish stick here, but it’s going to be an ahi tuna fish stick.You can get away with so much more” in the Short North, said O’Neill, who recently was culinary director of Taste Hospitality Group, which includes Mezzo in Dublin and Hubbard, 793 N. High St., in its portfolio. O’Neill, now a Food & Wine contributor, got his start in the food scene as a cook at the Donut Kitchen, now DK Diner, in Grandview Heights. From there, he went to Barcelona in German Village, Mendocino Farms in LosAngeles and eighty3 restaurant in the Madison Hotel in Memphis. “I’ve had the strangest career path ever,” said O’Neill, a 1998 graduate of Grandview Heights High School and current Clintonville resident. At Hubbard, he is creating many small plates meant for sharing, including chorizo sloppy joe sliders and homemade potato chips served with roasted garlic and green onion aioli. “I want people to come in and get three items,” he said.
