School board chooses, loses new AD Bloom-Carroll sweetens the deal, and Little decides to stay on By SCOTT HENNEN ThisWeek Community Newspapers
One day after the July 10 deadline passed for unrestricted hiring of employees from other districts, Grandview Heights High School lost its new athletics director. Chad Little had a change of heart, deciding to stay at Bloom-Carroll after that district’s board added incentives to his contract, including becoming an assistant principal at the district’s middle school. “It wasn’t something I anticipated would hap-
pen,” Little told ThisWeek July 12. Little was approved by the Grandview school board on July 6 but had yet to sign a contract with the district. “I had all intentions of working both jobs over the next few weeks in making the transition at both schools,” Little said. “I drove back from Grandview (on July 11) and (Bloom-Carroll) superintendent (Roger Mace) talked to me when I got back. “(Mace) said my resignation was on the board agenda for the (July 11) meeting, but they were going to discuss some personnel changes and wondered if I would be interested in staying if they could
work things out. I said that if those changes could be made, I would be interested in staying. “I found out that they made the changes, that my resignation was struck from the agenda and that I was staying here,” Little said. “It wasn’t something I expected.” The Grandview school board had voted 5-0 to approve Little as the successor to Kathy Kinnard, who has held the athletics director position for 17 years and will retire at the end of the month. That leaves Grandview in a bind, since the deadline of July 10 has passed for hiring employees under
contract with another district. Now any prospective candidate, if under contract, would need the approval of his or her current district before being released from a contract. “We’re still in the process of discussing what our next steps will be, but we’re coming up with a plan,” Grandview superintendent Ed O’Reilly said Tuesday. “July 10 was the last day to get someone if they were currently employed by another district. Now, by law, (a district would) have to give a release on See ATHLETICS, page A2
Proposed CVB legislation on hold to allow for revisions By ALAN FROMAN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Market in full flower at new location By ALAN FROMAN ThisWeek Community Newspapers
A full roster of vendors is now participating in the Grandview Avenue Farmers Market. More than a dozen vendors will be selling at the market, which is being held at a new location this year just north of Third Avenue in the parking lot adjacent to Vino Vino and Figlio’s Restaurant. “It’s a good location and space that allows us to handle up to 15 vendors,” said Becky Hetteberg, who serves as market coordinator with Dorothy Pritchard. “We’re really happy with how the new location is working out.” This year’s market started a month earlier than usual, and the early start meant that not all vendors were ready to bring their produce and other products to sell, she said. Visitors to the market can purchase more than just fruits and vegetables.
The roster of vendors includes Ben Minor, a Columbus-based baker who bakes whole-wheat breads. “I started doing this because I just found that I loved to bake,” Minor said. “I really didn’t start baking until I was 18, but once I started, I was hooked. “I think I like the serenity of the process,” he said. “You’re baking early in the morning before anyone else is up. You have to slow down and wait for the bread to rise. It’s peaceful.” This is Minor’s first year participating in the Grandview farmers market. The Grandview Avenue market seems to bring a lot of foot traffic, he said. “It’s been great so far, except for (July 2) when we were rained out,” Minor said. “I really enjoy getting to meet all the people who come to the market.” Bill Evans sells flowers he grows near his Urbana home for his business, Evans Cut Flowers. “I’ve always enjoyed growing things,
and when I retired about five years ago, I thought now I’d have the time to do what I really love,” he said. “I really enjoy it.” There is a special thrill to growing flowers, Evans said. “It’s nice to grow something that is so beautiful and colorful,” he said. As with so many growers, whether of flowers or vegetables, this year’s rainy and cool spring has wreaked havoc on flowers, Evans said. “It’s been really tough this year. I had a late start on a lot of things, and now it’s so hot and dry,” he said. “But that’s the risk you take. You never know what the weather is going to be.” Weather’s not a problem for Westerville resident Amy Gorenz, who bakes the cupcakes, cookies and other sweet treats for her business, Lexiloo Sweets, in her home kitchen. “I especially like making cupcakes and See MARKET, page A2
Grandview Heights City Council’s economic development committee July 5 discussed — but did not vote on recommending to the full council — an ordinance to authorize and appropriate bed tax revenue for the creation of a convention and visitors bureau. The committee met prior to the regular council meeting. Committee members and other council members who attended the meeting agreed to postpone consideration of the legislation. They said they would like to see it reworked to give less detail on how the CVB would operate. Instead, city officials will be asked to consult with the Grandview Area Chamber of Commerce to develop a plan for how the CVB would be structured and operate before a revision of the ordinance would be considered by council. Revenue from the 12-percent bed tax is divided, with 1.5 percent earmarked for convention and visitors bureau activity, Patrik Bowman, director of administration/economic development, told the committee. Another 1.5 percent is set aside for the city’s general fund, and 3 percent is earmarked for the parks and recreation department. The remaining 6 percent goes to Experience Columbus, the city of Columbus’ convention and visitors bureau. Earlier this year, Michelle Wilson, executive director of the Grandview Area Chamber of Commerce, presented council

with a proposal for creating a convention and visitors bureau to be called “Destination Grandview.” The chamber board met in January and voted on the “Destination Grandview” name as a brand for the CVB. As part of her presentation to council, Wilson offered to oversee the Destination Grandview effort on a volunteer basis, Bowman said. The question is whether council favors going into that direction with the chamber and Wilson heading up the CVB, he said. Council should also consider whether it should wait until the bylaws and governing board structure for the CVB are in place before it approves the ordinance to authorize its creation, Bowman said. If council decides to wait, some money would be needed to fund the organizing of the CVB structure, he said. Mayor Ray DeGraw said he was concerned that the legislation under consideration goes too See CVB, page A2
Kathy Lithgow won’t seek 18th annual Lazy Daze re-election to school board festival set for July 23
By ALAN FROMAN
ThisWeek Community Newspapers
Kathy Lithgow, president of the Grandview Heights Board of Education, has announced she will not be running for re-election in November. Lithgow is serving her third term on the board, which will run through the end of the year. She was first elected in 1999. “After three terms, it just feels like it’s time,” Lithgow said July 8. She has served as board president since January 2009. “My term will end in middle of the school year and I realized the
seniors who will be graduating were in kindergarten when I started on the board,” she said. “When you Kathy Lithgow think of it in those terms, it seems like it’s been a really long time.” Lithgow ran for the board after serving as one of the chairs of the district’s levy campaign in 1998. Learning about district finances and operations during that campaign led to her interest in running for the board, Lithgow said.
“I was so impressed with the job that (then-superintendent) Paul Kulik and (then-treasurer) David Knisley were doing,” she said. Serving on the board “has been so rewarding, that’s the word I would use,” Lithgow said. “It’s the most rewarding and satisfying thing I’ve done, outside of having children and a family. “Happy is not necessarily a word I would use” to describe service on the board “because there are good times and bad,” she said. The district had to seek levies twice in 2002, and again in 2005 See LITHGOW, page A2

The 18th annual Lazy Daze of Summer Festival will be held from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, July 23, on West First Avenue near the Grandview Heights Public Library. “It’s amazing to think that this will be the 18th year,” said Ruthanne James, president of the Grandview Heights/Marble Cliff Arts Council, which presents the annual arts and crafts festival. “There aren’t many events like this that last that long,” said James, who is a co-chair of this year’s festival. More than 50 craft exhibitors from Ohio, Michi-
gan and Kentucky have been selected by a jury to participate in this year’s Lazy Daze event. “The streets by the library are going to be full this year,” said Jeri Diehl Cusack, an arts council board member and Lazy Daze co-chair. The exhibitors will include several Grandview residents as well as last year’s Best of Show winner, Columbus artist Kate Morgan, and People’s Choice Award winner Mozart, a Great Dane that paints with his paws. Honorable mention award winners April Brehob, who makes artwork using reclaimed materials, and Kaska Firor, a fine-jewelry maker, will also be returning to the festival. See LAZY DAZE, page A3

Members of the cast of the first Grandview community play, a musical version of Jane Austen’s ‘Pride and Prejudice,’ are (from left) Emily Turner of Hilliard as Jane Bennet, Josh Parker of Grandview as Mr. Bingley, Anthony Baker of Grandview as Mr. Darcy and Alexa Rybinski of Bexley as Elizabeth Bennet. The production will be performed July 29-31 in The Grandview Heights High School auditorium.
‘Pride and Prejudice’ musical slated July 29-31 By ALAN FROMAN ThisWeek Community Newspapers
An original community theater musical version of Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice” will be performed July 29-31 in the Grandview Heights High School Auditorium. The project is being jointly presented by the Grandview Heights Parks and Recreation Department and the city of Columbus’Carriage Place Recreation Center. Anyone who wanted could participate in the production, although auditions were held to cast the leads, said assistant director Laura Jewell, a Grandview resident and theater major at Miami University who also cowrote the script and wrote the lyrics for the play. “We have a real cross-section of people involved from all walks of life from throughout the Columbus area,” Jewell said. “The ages of our cast range from 6 into their 60s.” The production “is completely local,” she said. “The script, the music and lyrics, even the costumes were all created by local people.” Jewell co-wrote the script with director John Heisel, who has directed a number of community theater productions at Carriage

Place. Jewell’s mother, Julie DuSablon, wrote the music. “‘Pride and Prejudice’ is really ideal for a musical,” Jewell said. “It’s so romantic and so much of the dialogue is lyrical.” Although she is studying acting at Miami, Jewel said her experience this year of helping to write a musical play has broadened her interests. “This is definitely something I’d like to do again,” she said. A community theater production is a special experience, Jewell said. “It’s been so much fun,” she said. “Everybody has been so enthusiastic about it. The level of talent in the cast is amazing.” The four leads in the play are Bexley resident Emily Turner, who portrays Jane; Grandview resident Josh Parker as Charles Bingley; Grandview resident Anthony Baker as Mr. Darcy; and Hilliard resident Alexa Rybinski as Elizabeth Bennett.
MARKET Continued from page A1 coming up with unusual flavors,” she said. “The test is whether a kid enjoys the cake as much as the icing. If they do, you know you’ve got a winner.” Gorenz said she has her own taste-testers — her children, who get to sample her recipes. This is her third year participating in the Grandview Avenue Farmers Market. “This is such a great community for a market like this,” Gorenz said. “I really like the new location this year. It’s great that the vendors are facing each other rather than just being all in one row. It allows us to interact more.” The Grandview Avenue Farmers Market is held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. each Saturday through Oct. 29. Live music is featured each week. The market is managed by the Pearl Alley Growers Association.
“I’ve wanted to do something like this for a long time. I was involved in theater a long time ago and I wanted to do it again,” Baker said. “Plus, I’m a big Jane Austen fan.” “I’m a theater minor and I wanted to take a break from what I usually do over the summer and do something non-sports related,” Parker said. “Kind of a change of pace.” “My major is vocal performance and I’ve always loved this book,” Rybinski said. “Community theater is always a great experience. I do community theater every summer, usually in Hilliard.” “Pride and Prejudice” will be performed at 7 p.m. Friday, July 29; 2 and 7 p.m. Saturday, July 30; and at 2 p.m. Sunday, July 31. Admission is a $3 donation at the door, all of which will be donated back to Columbus Parks and Recreation “so that these type of programs can continue to be offered,” Grandview recreation supervisor Marta Durban said. Children ages 12 and under will be admitted free. “We’re so happy to be able to provide this kind of program for our residents,” Durban said. “It’s definitely something we want to do again next summer and in the years to follow.”

him or her, which is something (it would) not have to do at this point.” Grandview planned to hold a board meeting July 12, and O’Reilly said he expected members would go into executive session to discuss their options. “We’ll figure out what we need to do,” O’Reilly said. Little was one of four finalists for the position. The others were Nicholas Gaston, an assistant athletics director at Hilliard Bradley; Thomas Phillips, coordinator and head football coach at Pickerington North; and Troy Slattman, athletics director and assistant principal at Licking Heights. “I talked to Mr. O’Reilly at about 8:15 (a.m. July 12) and he was friendly, but I’m sure he was as surprised as I was,” Little said. Little was valedictorian at Uhrichsville Claymont in 1995 and graduated in 1999 from Malone University in Canton with a bachelor’s degree in history education for grades 7-12. In 2002, he received a bachelor’s degree from the University of Akron for being an intervention specialist for grades K-12. He earned his master’s in education administration from Salem (W.Va.) University in 2007. Little has been the athletics director for five years at Bloom-Carroll in Fairfield County. Before that, he was in southern Tuscarawas County at Newcomerstown, where he was an athletics director for four years and an assistant principal for three. Little also has been the girls basketball coach at BloomCarroll for four seasons. Last winter, the Bulldogs finished 19-5 overall and were Division III district runners-up. He was named district Coach of the Year. He will continue as athletics director and girls basketball coach at Bloom-Carroll. email@example.com www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com
and 2010, “and that’s something I hate having to do,” Lithgow said. The loss of Big Bear was a major blow to the district and the loss of tax revenue resulted in the need to reorganize the district. “That was a negative situation that really turned into a blessing in disguise,” Lithgow said. “I remember we were meeting between the holidays at the end of the year to discuss the situation and the administrators came in with such wonderful ideas about how we could do things even better. “That process ended up making us a better school district,” she said. During her tenure, the board has had to select two superintendents. The first selection of Steve Allen to replace the departing Paul Kulik “was an easy one because Steve was already in the district,” she said. The process of selecting current superintendent Ed O’Reilly was much more timeconsuming “but all that time and effort were well spent, because Ed’s done such an outstanding job,” Lithgow said. After three terms, it is time to allow other members of the community the opportunity to serve on the board and make their own imprint on the district, she said. “I would encourage anyone who is interested to consider running for the board, because nothing is more important than the education of our children and it is such a rewarding experience,” Lithgow said.
CVB Continued from page A1 far and has too much detail. While he wants to see the CVB concept go forward, the chamber and a CVB governing board should first come up with the plan for the organization and then bring it to council, he said. With the ordinance as written, “we are legislating what it is before we know what it is,” DeGraw said.
Council member Steve Gladman expressed concern about a passage in the legislation that states the city intends to make annual appropriations of bed tax funds for the operation of the visitors bureau “which will be created.” “I’m not comfortable giving
any organization money for operations” without knowing what those operations are going to be, he said. A CVB governing board should bring an operational plan forward each year that indicates how much funding is needed to meet those goals, Gladman said.

Craft Museum exhibits showcase wood The Ohio Craft Museum is presenting two exhibitions showcasing wood in various forms. “National Treasures: Art in the Making” and “Boxes and Their Makers” are on display at the museum through Aug. 21. “We’ve had wood-based exhibitions in the past and there is an audience in central Ohio for these kind of programs,” museum/artistic director Betty Talbott said. “The wood exhibitions we’ve done have been very popular.” The opportunity to combine the two current exhibitions was not planned, but was “a lucky accident,” she said. “National Treasures” features objects created by more than 20 artists using wood reclaimed from trees from historic sites, including Mount Vernon, Monticello, the homes of Patrick Henry, James Madison and James Monroe and the Wilderness, a Civil War battlefield. “These were trees that had been struck by lightning or that had to be trimmed or were diseased,” Talbott said. “What would have happened to this wood otherwise? Here they were able to be turned into works of everlasting art.” The exhibit was organized by Historical Woods of America (HWA), a Virginia-based group
bott said. She said her favorite piece in the exhibit is a writing desk “that looks like Thomas Jefferson would have used it.” The piece uses 15 woods from historic sites and includes inlays of items such as a quill pen, eyeglasses, keys, an envelope and paper with an early draft of the Declaration of Independence. “Boxes and Their Makers” features works This piece by Jacques Vesery is one of the wood by more than creations on display during the “National Treasures: 30 artists, inArt in the Making” and “Boxes and Their Makers,” cluding some who particiexhibit at the Ohio Craft Museum. pated in the “National Treareclaims wood from damaged trees or trees removed from his- sures” project. “There are boxes in all shapes toric sites so they can be made into art, flooring, furniture or other and sizes” from a bird or a grasshopper to one in the shape items.

LAZY DAZE Continued from page A1 “We try to have both new artists and returning favorites,” Cusack said. “We have a lot of exciting new artists this year.” Entertainment featuring performers from Grandview Parks and Recreation programs, Imaginating Dramatics and Habeeba’s Belly Dancers will be offered throughout the day. A concert by Lydia Brownfield will wrap up the day’s entertainment from 4 to 6 p.m. The event will also include food, a Friends of the Library book sale and community showcase area. The kids’ arts activities will be held from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m., a bit earlier in the day than usual, Cusack said. The annual awards will be announced at the end of the day. The awards include the Best of Show, honorable mention and the People’s Choice Award, which is determined by a vote of festivalgoers. Proceeds of the festival benefit the Arts Council as well as the city of Grandview Heights and the library. “Lazy Daze serves as the arts council’s main fundraiser,” James said. “It allows us to present an annual scholarship, which from
the time the council began has been a major goal for us.”’ The scholarship is endowed through a fund set up with the Columbus Foundation, she said. Meredith Kaltender, a graduating senior from Grandview Heights High School, was selected to receive the 2011 scholarship. Kaltender will attend Kent State University in the fall, majoring in interior design with a minor in photography. The scholarship is awarded each year to a student who will be pur-
suing a college degree in the visual, performing or practical arts, James said. Volunteers are still needed to help with festival set-up, clean-up and other tasks, she said. “We wouldn’t be able to put this festival on without the help and support of the community,” James said. Anyone who volunteers for four hours will receive a freeT-shirt. To volunteer, contact the Arts Council at www.ghmcartscouncil.org.

Grandview community leader William T. Eaton and his wife, Emma, are shown here in 1916 in the front yard of their new home at 1413 Wyandotte Road, at the corner of Third Avenue and Wyandotte. Their son, Ted, was a well-known Grandview High School student personality, active in the Brotherhood of the Rook, and later becoming a prominent insurance man. In 1919, the Community Church in Grandview (later First Community Church) started a local newspaper, called the Community News and Eaton became its first editor. After it was taken over by Curtis F. “Squire” Ricketts, it was renamed the Tri-Village News. In the background of the photo is the home of William Carlon at 1392 Wyandotte. The curve in the street at Third and Wyandotte is apparent over Emma’s shoulder.

Police reports Grandview police A Columbus man was arrested July 10 and charged with vehicular trespass, obstructing official business and carrying a concealed weapon. The man had been arrested on June 25 for receiving stolen property after a resident reported a theft from her vehicle. At about 3:22 a.m. July 10, the man was observed walking on Grandview Avenue, just south of Goodale. Officers began monitoring the man on foot and observed him entering driveways to residences and attempting to open vehicle doors. He proceeded to the rear of the Bank Block where he began attempting to open vehicle doors. He disappeared from sight, but was later found sitting in a vehicle. As officers approached the vehicle and identified themselves, he exited the vehicle and fled on foot. A foot pursuit ensued and the man was apprehended after he attempted to hide in a dumpster in the 1400 block of Grandview Avenue. He was placed on the ground after refusing orders to comply and was secured and searched. The man received minor injuries after being placed on the ground, but refused medical treatment. He was taken to the Franklin County Jail. A Columbus woman was arrested July 9 and charged with expired license plates and no oper-
ator’s license. A resident of the 1200 block of Dover Avenue reported July 9 a laptop computer, valued at $1,800, was stolen from his home. A Columbus man was arrested July 9 and charged with possession of drugs and driving under suspension after he was stopped as a suspicious vehicle. He was found to have a felony warrant out of South Carolina for a sex offense on a minor. At the time of the stop, South Carolina officials were still verifying if they would extradite the man. He was taken to the Franklin County Jail on the suspension charge. Officers responded July 6 to a residence in the 1100 block of Northwest Boulevard on a domestic dispute report. A woman reported her boyfriend punched her in the face and threw her to the ground during an argument. She had visible injury to her face, back and leg. The suspect left the scene before officers arrived. A warrant was issued for his arrest for domestic violence and assault. He was located at an Upper Arlington home and arrested. A man reported July 5 a vehicle valued at $600, was stolen from his business in the 1100 block of West Goodale Boulevard. A Grandview woman was arrested July 4 and charged with operating a vehicle while under the influence.

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.

Joseph resigns as Silver Knights coach By JARROD ULREY ThisWeek Community Newspapers
One of central Ohio’s most successful high school softball programs the past two decades will have a new coach next spring. Nick Joseph, who went 412-135 in 20 seasons as Ready’s coach and led the Silver Knights to the 1995 Division II state championship, stepped down in mid-June. For Joseph, it was a difficult deci-
sion, but one he believed was due to occur because he saw himself “physically going slower.” “I think mentally that I could probably still do it, but physically it was just time,” Joseph said. “I’m sad about it. I’ll always remember the tremendous games we won, the tremendous games we lost. I waited until after the (team) banquet because I didn’t want the banquet to be about me. I’m disappointed that it has to end, but I met great friends and I had some of the
greatest kids.” Joseph spent eight seasons as junior varsity coach with the Silver Knights before taking over the program in 1992. Ready went on to win 11 CCL championships and 10 district titles under Joseph. After Joseph led the program to its only state title during his fourth season, the Silver Knights were state runners-up the next season. In 2001, Ready began a run in which it reached nine consecutive district fi-
nals. The Silver Knights were state semifinalists in 2009. They also won consecutive conference titles from 200509. Last season, Ready went 17-7 and lost to Liberty Union 3-2 in a Division III district final. Joseph, who is not a teacher, owns the business Pak Mail, which specializes in package shipping. “We changed the way we play softball at Ready,” Joseph said. “I was pretty pleased with what we did. I love this
game, but I don’t know if I want to do all of the work you have to do to run a high school program. Not one person pushed me to do this, and I didn’t decide before the season, but I knew it was going to be close. The thing that made me think about it is that you have to lose another great group of kids that you’ve had for four years and I just don’t want to do that anymore.” email@example.com www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com
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 enorLARRY mous impact on how stuLARSON dent-athletes perceive themselves, 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.”

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.

Backes powered Bears’ run 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 The Columbus Dispatch file photo and two touchdowns on 32 carJeff Backes rushed for 183 yards and had a game-saving intercep- ries and preserved a 15-9 victoSee LARSON, page B2 tion in a 15-9 win over Solon in the 2000 Division I state final. ry 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 my teammates and my own abilities.” Darrell Mayne, who was UA’s coach at the time, would have preferred the Mr. Football announcement to have been made
after the championship game. “As a coach, you don’t want one of your (players) to have that honor bestowed on them before a big game like that,” said Mayne, who coached the Bears from 1998-2004. “That just adds to the adrenaline flow of the opponent. But what Jeff did that game is a 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 See BACKES, page B2

Chuck Bolton of Westerville returns a shot July 9 during tournament play.
BACKES Continued from page B1 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. Solon, which finished 14-1, reached the end zone in the second quarter but failed to convert the two-point conversion and trailed 8-6 at halftime. The Comets got the ball to start the second half but went three-andout, and the ensuing punt gave 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
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 ThisWeekSPORTS.com. 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.
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 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.
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

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.” firstname.lastname@example.org www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com

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-

Ohio Elite team wins Buckeye tourney title By FRANK DiRENNA ThisWeek Community Newspapers
The ceremonial drenching — and the victory — must have been quite refreshing for Ohio Elite 14and-under baseball coach David Lee. Ohio Elite beat the Ohio Force of Cincinnati 7-1 in the Buckeye Elite Showcase Tournament 14and-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 18and-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-frombehind 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. Gahanna graduate Josh Bokor, who recently completed his freshman season at Ohio State, singled to score Johnson with the winning run. Teller’s two-run double helped Steve’s Sports take a 3-0 lead in the fourth. Grove City graduate T.J. 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.

Sports briefs 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.

Ohio Elite opened the tournament with a 5-1 win over the Ohio Orioles Black before losing to North Canton 3-2. “It’s unfortunate that we didn’t get it done against North Canton, but that’s the nature of tournament 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.

a silent auction as well as a portion of the proceeds from food and drink sales will go toward buying goalposts, nets, balls, jerseys and additional equipment for the LCFL. 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, www.hatualikoni.org. “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.” email@example.com www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com
