Council renews Town Center program By SARAH SOLE ThisWeek Community Newspapers Grove City Council on July 5 unanimously voted to appropriate $100,000 from the general fund for the Town Center Commercial Revitalization Grant program. The program, a 50-percent match, offers grants of as much as $10,000 each to refurbish properties in the downtown historic preservation area. “I think it’s an indication of the in-

vestment people are putting in the town center,” development director Chuck Boso told council. Mayor Richard “Ike” Stage said the program has worked “very, very well.” The program started out with $50,000 appropriated for 2011, Boso said. To date, $21,233 in grants has been awarded this year. Five more businesses applied, for a total request of $32,422. The city couldn’t have awarded those five grants without being short $3,655. Taking into account several other busi-

nesses that also are considering applications, the program would’ve been short $58,655, Boso said. In 2010, the first year the city started offering grants of up to $10,000 each, the city awarded $127,382 to about 20 different businesses. In 2009, it awarded $10,700 in grants of up to $1,000 each. “The program strives to keep and encourage redevelopment for the downtown area,” Boso said. Also at the meeting, council approved a $40,000 annual salary for a new infor-

mation systems position and renewed its agreement with the Franklin County commissioners for participation in the Ohio Department of Housing and Urban Development Entitlement Program. The agreement is from April 1, 2012, through March 31, 2015. Stage told The Record the increase in the grant amount from $1,000 to $10,000 “absolutely” paid off. Though the city can’t sustain that amount, “for the short term, it’s the absolute right thing to do,” he said.

Stage predicted the city will continue offering $10,000 grants within the program for the next two to four years. The city also is looking for other sources of money for the program. Council also approved: • Budget estimates for fiscal year 2012. Finance director Mike Turner told council many funding sources are providing less money.

Beer OK’d for city softball tourney By SARAH SOLE and LISA AURAND ThisWeek Community Newspapers In a 4-1 vote July 5, Grove City Council approved beer sales for Fryer Park during the annual Grove City Homecoming Alumni Softball Tournament, July 30-31. Despite a melee during the tournament last year, the Grove City Titans Youth Baseball Organization will be allowed to sell beer at the event from 11 a.m. to the end of the last game each evening, but no later than 10 p.m. The Sertoma Club, which sold beer at the tournament last year, chose not to sell it this year. Two additional special-duty police officers will be at this year’s event. The city is requiring the Grove City Titans to provide liability insurance and liquor-liability insurance. Under both policies, the city would have to be named as additionally insured for $1 million, said councilman Steven Bennett. Councilman Gregory Grinch voted against the beer sales. Grove City High School’s class of 2003 and class of 2007 teams also will be watched closely at this year’s event, officials said. Both teams, which were involved in the fight at last year’s tournament, are on probation for two years, tournament organizer Steve Carr said over the weekend. City police said last year’s fight broke out on a field at Fryer Park as the winning men’s class of 2007 team walked onto the field to shake hands with the class of 2003. Police said the incident started with three men and escalated to include about 70 people. The three men had been drinking throughout the day, police said. Mayor Richard “Ike” Stage said continuing to permit alcohol sales means close monitoring. City administrator Phil Honsey told the council, “We think it can exist peacefully and properly.” Police Chief Steve Robinette said security will be increased at this year’s event.

Farmers market season under way By SARAH SOLE ThisWeek Community Newspapers Grove City’s summer farmers market season is under way. Chris Thompson, director of chamber relations at the Grove City Area Chamber of Commerce, said he’s expecting about 50 farmers per week to participate, a slight increase from last year. The first market of the year was held July 9. The market will run between 8 a.m. and noon every Saturday along Broadway and Park streets, concluding on Sept.10. “We have quite a variety this year,” he said. The market features fruits and vegetables, including sweet corn, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, blueberries, strawberries and peaches. Beef, bison, salsa, jellies and baked

goods also are offered. Telhio Credit Union is sponsoring this year’s farmers markets. Also planned are various events running in conjunction with the market. On July 16, the chamber will host a three-on-three basketball tournament, beginning at 8 a.m. and concluding sometime around 3 p.m. The parking lot at City Hall, 4035 Broadway and Park Street east of

Broadway will be blocked off and about a dozen hoops will be set up for the event. The youth tournament is for individuals aged 8-17. At noon is scheduled a businessman’s free-throw contest benefiting the Red Cross. About two dozen businesses are participating in the free-throw contest, Thompson said. Those interested in either event

can contact the chamber at (614) 875-9762 or register at the chamber office at 4069 Broadway. The winner of the free-throw contest will get $100 and will be on the front page of the Grove City Area Chamber of Commerce Business Monthly insert in The Record. A free Family Fun Day will be held from 8 a.m. to noon on July 30 in the parking lot behind City Hall, 4035 Broadway. Thompson said 27 businesses will provide activities for children, including a mini golf course, basketball hoops and face painters. Thompson said all farmers participating in the market are from the Grove City and Columbus areas. “The whole point is to get everyone in the town center to stimulate business and to support our local farmers,” he said.

Business survey

Newsletter to address communication concerns By SARAH SOLE ThisWeek Community Newspapers To address communication concerns of local businesses, Grove City will develop an e-business newsletter. That plan is based on information collected by Grove City’s first business survey. The city paid Columbus-based research company Saperstein Associates $29,000 to develop and administer the survey. Owner Marty Saperstein presented the findings to city council on July 5. The city identified about 1,033 businesses with Grove City addresses. Of that number, 477 businesses, or about

A closer look Only 35 percent of businesses strongly agreed the city does a good job of communicating with local businesses. That same number strongly agreed the city is responsive to the needs of local businesses.

46 percent, responded to the survey. The city now has 765 business email addresses, which it will use to develop an e-business newsletter. The city plans to send the first edition in August, com-

munity and business relations officer Don Walters said. It will be delivered at least every three months, but could be sent “as often as needed,” he said. Only 35 percent of businesses strongly agreed the city does a good job of communicating with local businesses. That same number strongly agreed the city is responsive to the needs of local businesses. The survey found most Grove City businesses are small. Seven out of 10 companies said they had 10 or fewer employees, and the median number of total employees is five. The median number of permanent fulltime employees was three.

Forty-five percent of businesses rated Grove City as an “excellent” business location, while another 45 percent rated it as “good.” Attracting customers and traffic and parking were the top challenges businesses said they faced in doing business in Grove City. Ten percent of businesses were dissatisfied with sign limitations. Walters said the city places size and graphics limitations on business signs. The city will initiate a review team to address signs, headed by the Grove City Area Chamber of Commerce. The team will include seven business owners, city building department head Mike Boso and city development director

Chuck Boso. The team’s first meeting will be in August. Since this is the city’s first business survey, “We wanted to address the concerns and the challenges,” Walters said. Also as a result of the survey, city officials plan to make visits to local businesses. The city has held at irregular intervals business breakfasts, usually at City Hall or a business location. Two or three businesses usually attend, with two or three representatives from each business. City officials said they might hold the breakfasts more frequently. Mayor Richard “Ike” Stage said the survey was very beneficial. He said the city probably will conduct more.

City accepts parks plan By SARAH SOLE ThisWeek Community Newspapers

After about 14 months of work and public input from 368 residents, Grove City has a comprehensive plan for its parks and recreation department. Grove City Council on July 5 approved the update to the 2006 parks and recreation comprehensive plan for 2011 through 2016. The plan is required as part of the city’s renewal of its accreditation through the Commission of Accreditation of Parks and Recreation Agencies. The city received input from three public meetings held in September and October, and an online survey. A draft was presented during another public meeting in March. “I’m really excited with the plan,” said Dave Roasa, parks board chair. He said he sees it as a guideline that council can use to set priorities.

Council members Steven Bennett and Ted Berry expressed concern that council’s approval meant the city would be held to the plan exactly as written. “I want to make sure that it’s clear that we’re simply accepting your work” rather than accepting the entire plan, Berry said. “That would be my intent,” said director of parks and recreation Kim Conrad. Stephen Smith, the city law director, said council has the final authority on the plan. “This lays the general groundwork,” he said, saying the plan is subject to change. Mayor Richard “Ike” Stage said the parks plan is similar to the thoroughfare plan the city currently has. “What we’re accepting here is this concept,” he said, saying the park board does not make policy. The plan includes five directions based on public comment. The most popular theme was

the need for improved access and trail connectivity. The plan said tying into the Camp Chase Trail near Sullivant Avenue would connect Grove City to the Ohio to Erie Trail. The plan also includes creating a recreational trail between the Battelle Darby Metro Park and the future Metro Park along the Scioto River (the former Talbott Park). Upgraded facilities were the second most popular theme. Residents also desired a variety of park options and programs, such as activities for teenagers, winter sports and programs for children with disabilities. Public comment also centered on the city identifying land for future parks use. Dog parks, a recreation center and an adult swimming area were among items requested. The city parks and recreation department currently manages 18 public parks on more than 260 acres and an additional 135 acres of public open space.

next year. Turner told The Record the reductions won’t affect city services, though they might affect how the city funds future capital improvement projects. • An ordinance levying special

assessments of $1.3 million from the Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio for Haughn Road improvements. SWACO was assessed because it benefited from the road improvements.

As can be seen when visiting German Village today, most of these houses were built close to the street and had little in the way of porches or front yards. So where did German Columbus go on hot July nights in 1861 to pass the time? Many went to Hessenauers. Hessenauers is gone now, and has been gone for more than a century. But 50 years after it opened in 1860, a reporter for a local paper looked back and reminded Columbus of what the “half-forgotten pleasure resort”

In the summer of 1861, Columbus, was a Midwestern capital city about to be engulfed in the largest conflict the country had ever seen — the American Civil War. The war had begun in April when Confederate batteries opened fire on ED Fort Sumter, S.C. Over the LENTZ spring of 1861, thousands of young men rushed to Columbus to enlist. Soon, many of the new soldiers would be fighting hard in places far from home. In 1861, as the Civil War was getting under way, Columbus was a town of only 18,000 people, many of whom had not been here long. Beginning in the 1830s, a large number of European immigrants began to arrive in central Ohio. Many of them were Irish and even more of them were German. By 1850, more than 40 percent of the population of Columbus was German and about a quarter of the population was Irish. And the rest? They were the people who were here before all of those Irish and Germans came to town. Columbus had been planned to be a relatively large town with its borders marked by “Public Lanes.” North Public Lane is Nationwide Boulevard today and South Public Lane is Livingston Avenue. East Public Lane is Parsons Avenue and the Scioto River was the western boundary of the original town. Upon arriving in Columbus, most of the new Irish and German immigrants decided to settle just outside the city limits, where land was a little cheaper. The Irish settled on the near North Side around the railyards and North Public Lane soon came to be called “Irish Broadway.” The Germans, on the other hand, settled on the South Side in what soon came to be called the “Alte Sud Ende” or the “Old South End.” Most of the houses of German Columbus during the

Columbus Academy provides relief

ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Tornado-ravaged Joplin, Mo., was a classroom of life lessons for Columbus Academy students and teachers who spent a week performing relief work there recently. “It was one of those experiences that slaps everything in your life into perspective,� said Karen Mozenter, an academy teacher from Gahanna. “It makes you see everything with a new lens. I’ll never look at things the same way again. Those people went from life like ours to nothing but the clothes on their back and the few items they could sift out of the rubble.� Academy senior Mark Morford saw pictures of Joplin before and after the May 22 tornado. “The pictures didn’t tell the tale,� he said. “It was kind of hard at some points. There was so much wreckage.� The school’s volunteer service group of two teachers and four students worked through the National Relief Network, performing residential demolition and volunteering at a Salvation Army distribution center. “It was a very powerful experience,� said Tim Morford, an academy history teacher. “The scope of the destruction is indescribable. The work, mostly demolition and removal of debris, as well as some sorting and distribution of donated goods, was exhausting and yet immensely rewarding. The stories we heard and the gratitude shown by the residents of Joplin will remain with us long after the town is re-

built.� Even though the work from June 19 to 25 felt like “a drop in the bucket,� Mozenter said, it was rewarding as a teacher to see the effect the trip had on students. “It was transformative to see how responsible they were and how they dealt with the people they met,� she said. “We had the opportunity to meet with the homeowners of our work sites.� In a trip blog, Morford describes the experience of Sam, a high school art teacher. “He saw a wall of black clouds approaching, heard the familiar railroad sound and hurried into his basement as things started crashing around him,� Morford wrote. “He crawled under a table

and says he thought he was going to die. ‌ He came outside to an unrecognizable but silent scene. The next thing he saw was one man running down the middle of the street, screaming, ‘like in a horror movie.’ It was his neighbor’s son, looking for his parents.â€? Senior Stephan Kim blogged on June 23 that his arms were scraped, his legs bruised and his entire body itched of fiberglass. “But my experience here has been priceless, indescribable and

will forever be in my heart,� he said. “Today we attacked a new house that looked like it was impossible, but I wish I could show you the improvement we made just in one day: amazing. This trip overall was so humbling and made me realize the small things in life.� Kim said he hopes Columbus Academy students could try to empathize with a tornado victim. Mozenter has performed a variety of service work, but she

said nothing compares with the Joplin relief efforts. “You felt that you were part of it, making a difference,� she said. “You really got a sense of what it was like. It wasn’t like we were helping a community different from ours.� While student Mark Morford worked at the Salvation Army center, he lent his cell phone to a man so he could reconnect with his family. “I told him I was from Ohio,� he said. “The people there were so happy and surprised for the help. They treated us like heroes. They’re in such a terrible situation and focused on you. It was pretty amazing. It’s a life-changing experience.� Morford said he would like to return to help again. “An anonymous donor covered our fees,� he said. “It’s probably hard to get the means and time to do it. Another school or church that works with National Relief (Network) took over where we left off.� Others from the Columbus Academy who participated in the service trip were senior Cami Mampieri of Westerville and recent graduate Alex Shahade of Dublin.

“We’ve had a couple of meetings (with the organizers) over the last couple of months and we have one next week,� he said. Robinette wouldn’t share specific security plans, but Carr said two additional special duty police officers will be at the event at the request of Robinette and the Grove City attorney. In addition, only team members from the classes of 2003 and 2007 are allowed on the field, Carr said. “They can only have classmates on the field with them. No fathers or coaches for a two-year period,� he said. “Those measures seem to have satisfied the city.� Carr said the 2010 incident was the first in the tournament’s 29-year history “and hopefully our last,� he said.

Hessenauers was now part of the central city. People still wanted places to escape the noise, heat, and bustle of summer in the city. The system of city parks continued to grow. And private parks were created, as well. As early as 1879, a man named Joseph Gettner began to develop a dance hall and boat dock along the Olentangy River, north of the newly created Ohio State University. He called it Olentangy Villa and it was popular for a few years. Then the site changed hands and the new manager — to the distress of local residents — “suffered gambling to be conducted there.” Riding to the rescue came the streetcar company. The Columbus Railway Power and Light Co. acquired Olentangy Villa and transformed it into Olentangy Park, the preeminent amusement park in central Ohio. The streetcar company spent a lot of money in the hope that people would ride streetcars more in order to visit the park. Complemented by other suburban attractions like Indianola Park and Minerva Park, Olentangy Park became the preferred place to visit in the summertime for almost two generations. It was only with the coming of the Great Depression of the 1930s that the amusement parks began to close. This did not mean that people stopped looking for places to visit in the summertime. It just meant there would be different attractions for a different time. But I will leave the story of drive-in restaurants and drive-in movies for another day.

What’s

standing

rying gaslights in frosted globes, stood among the trees, fountains trickled, and a carpet of noiseless tanbark drowned all sounds save for the tinkling of glasses and the hum of conversation. “A great bandstand stood near the center, and from it were heard the leading bands and singers of this country and Europe, particularly German bands. Upon numerous occasions, crowds of 2,500 were entertained. The gardens were then so remote from the center of the city, lighting was so decidedly in its infancy, and the demands of this one place so large, that the gardens maintained their own gas plant. “The best people of the city accorded it their patronage, many philosophical problems were worked out in its shade, and to it came visitors from far and near, for it was one of the show places of the city. “For more than 20 years, it maintained its standing. Then it fell upon evil ways. A dance hall became a feature and the nature of the patronage changed. Then it changed hands. In the early Eighties, it was no longer in favor with the conservative element.” By the turn of the 20th century, Hessenauer’s existed “only in the memory of those heads are silvered o’er are the recollections of brighter days still cherished.” In these accounts, a few things are left unsaid. By the turn of the 20th century, Columbus was 10 times larger than it had been in 1860. Whole new neighborhoods linked by streetcar service to the downtown now reached from OSU in the north to Steelton in the south and from the Hilltop to Ed Lentz writes a history column Franklin Park.

Goodwill Columbus

College notes

Athlete brings home gold Jeff Brewer traveled to Athens, Greece, late last month as a Special Olympics athlete representing Goodwill Columbus. The Clintonville resident, who works in the Northland area, came home a Gold Medalist. A sign-carrying delegation of Goodwill employees and individuals with developmental disabilities gathered last week in the Food Court on the ticketing level of the Port Columbus International Airport to cheer and welcome Brewer, 37, back from the 2011 Special Olympics World Games. “Jeff not only ran his personal best at 1:01 seconds in the 400meter run, but he became a world champion,” Steve Weaver, the coordinator of athletic programs at Goodwill and Brewer’s coach for all Special Olympic events, said in a statement. Weaver witnessed Brewer’s victory in Athens, the birthplace of the Olympics. “Jeff was like a young boy who received a precious gift as he beamed from ear to ear with joy … and showed everyone his gold medal,” Weaver said. “It was fantastic to see.” Through his participation in the athletic program at Goodwill Columbus over the last three

years, Brewer has trained and competed in Special Olympics track and field events at local, state and national levels. At the world games, Brewer also competed in the standing long jump and the 4 by 100 meter relay team from the United States. Team U.S.A. placed fourth in (Above) Jeff Brewer stands on the awards platform after receiving his gold medal in the 400-meter run at the 2011 Special Olympics World Games in this event.

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

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

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

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

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

Lookouts of Alliance 4-1 on July 10 at Dublin Jerome. The Cobras advanced to the semifinal round with a come-from-behind 5-4 win over Steve’s Sports of Mayfield. Trailing 4-2 with two outs in the seventh inning, the Cobras’ Kendall Johnson hit a routine fly ball to left fielder Drew Teller, who dropped it, allowing the tying runs to score. Gahanna graduate Josh Bokor, who recently completed his freshman season at Ohio State, singled to score Johnson See BASEBALL, page B2

Commentary

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

Nathan Hurd and Michelle Hurd are organizing a 5K to be held July 30 to raise money for SIDS research. Their infant son, Will, died in 2009 of SIDS. The Hurds are pictured with their sons, Nathan, 4, who is holding a picture of Will, Sam, 6, and Jack, 11 months.

SIDS Fundraiser

Hurds determined to make difference By PAUL BATTERSON ThisWeek Community Newspapers

At the end of his eulogy for his 2-monthold son, Will, on Aug. 7, 2009, Nathan Hurd urged mourners to take action. “I told people, ‘When you think of our family, don’t think about how sad it is that we lost a child, embrace the commitment to make a difference and do something positive,’” said Hurd, a Grove City resident whose son died of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). His words struck a chord with family and friends, who approached Hurd’s father-in-law, Bill Brestle, about organizing what became the BabyWill.Org/ SIDS Awareness 5-kilometer run. The second annual event will be held July 30 at downtown Columbus’ Genoa Park on the

riverfront side of the Center of Science and Industry (COSI), 333 W. Broad St. Signin for the event is at 7:30 a.m. and the race begins at 8 a.m. After family and friends organized the inaugural event, Nathan and Michelle Hurd and their children — Sam (6), Nate (4) and Jack (11 months) — are more involved this year. The event will take place nearly two years to the day that Will died of SIDS. “Originally that date wasn’t our choice,” Nathan Hurd said. “Our friends and family decided to do it on that day because they were really looking out for us. “An event like this is for a very serious cause and we’re so emotionally invested in it. At the same time, you can’t be sad. The hardest part has been working through our grief while staying positive and optimistic that someday the medical commu-

nity will solve SIDS.” SIDS, the leading cause of death in otherwise healthy babies between the ages of 1 month and 1 year, is responsible for about 50 deaths per every 100,000 births in the United States. Since 1983, the number of SIDS deaths has fallen by more than 50 percent, but there are about 2,500 deaths per year in the U.S., according to websites dedicated to SIDS prevention. Last year, the BabyWill.Org/ SIDS Awareness run raised more than $17,000 for research. Hurd said the event attracted two types of participants. “We have a lot of passionate runners who participate. (In Columbus) there’s a vibrant running community and it amazes me how big and how passionate that group is,” he said. “The other group was families who have been personally impacted or

know someone who has been affected by SIDS.” He said the event attracted several families who brought with them people to represent children who had died from SIDS. “There were more people there that we didn’t know than ones that we did,” he said. “It was very moving to see people show support for such a great cause. But on the other hand, it reminds you how serious the cause is because we have a personal connection to it.” Michelle Hurd said it was emotional watching more than 400 runners and walkers at the start of last year’s event. “There was a sea of emotions going on,” she said. “It was the first anniversary of Will’s death and I was due to have a (CaeSee HURDS, page B4

Top Individual Performances: No. 5

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

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

testament to his toughness because he rose to that challenge. “It was a tremendous performance on his part. He had a great supporting cast, but nonetheless it was a great performance. Any time you rush for 180 yards in a Division I state championship game, I think that’s a superior performance.” Backes, who was 5-foot-9 and 180 pounds in his senior season at UA, opened the scoring in the championship game with a 15yard touchdown run with 8 minutes, 23 seconds left in the first quarter. The two-point conversion gave UA an 8-0 lead. On the touchdown run, Backes took the handoff from quarterback Brian Ramey on a draw play and broke a tackle by Solon safety Steve Watson at the 5-yard line. Solon, which finished 14-1, The Columbus Dispatch file photo reached the end zone in the second quarter but failed to convert Jeff Backes, who was named Mr. Football the week of the 2000 Division I state final, rushed for the two-point conversion and 183 yards and had a game-saving interception in a 15-9 win over Solon. trailed 8-6 at halftime.

Levy making impact in Kenya 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 Ben Levey Back 4 Kids” at 6 p.m. Monday, July 18, at the Bexley-area Old Bag of Nails, 18 North Nelson Road. Money from 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.

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-

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

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.

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. The other team took advantage of our three errors and we only had four hits, so we didn’t deserve to win that game.” The Cobras are 35-6 heading into the Pastime Best of the Midwest Tournament at Wright State and the University of Dayton on Thursday, July 14. •The Ohio Elite 17-and-under team finished 2-1-1 in the 18-andunder division. 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. Hilliard Davidson’s Mike Scaglione allowed two hits, struck out five and walked one in a complete-game effort. Ohio Elite and the Columbus Cobras 17-and-under team were tied at 10 on July 9 at Granville when the game was suspended because of darkness. Ohio Elite did not to return to Granville on July 10 to complete the game in the silver championship bracket.

downs on 19 carries. 9. LATOYA TURNER, Pickerington girls basketball (March 19, 1999) — The 6-foot-4 senior helped the Tigers advance to the Division I state final with her 29-point performance in a 5135 win over Wadsworth. The Ohio State recruit made 12 of 14 shots from the floor and was 5-for-6 from the freethrow line while adding five rebounds, four steals and two assists. 8. DARCY FISHBACK, Upper Arlington girls swimming (Feb. 27-28, 2009) — During preliminaries Feb. 27, Fishback broke the state record in the 100-yard butterfly when she finished in 53.38 seconds. She won her fourth state title in the event the next day in 54.17 seconds. Fishback also swam on two state-record relays, the 200 medley (1:43.59) and the 200 freestyle (1:34.24). 7. CHARLES JOHNSON, Watkins Memorial boys basketball (Feb. 24,

1995) — There have been few more surprising performances than what this 5-8 senior guard accomplished in leading the Warriors to a 93-87 overtime upset of second-seeded and stateranked London in the second round of the Division II district tournament. Watkins Memorial was just 1-19 entering the matchup but got 57 points from Johnson, who made 19 of 34 from floor, including eight 3-pointers, and was 11-for-15 from the free-throw line. He added eight rebounds, six steals and five assists. 6. KHALILAH CARPENTER, Brookhaven girls track and field (June 2-3, 2000) — At the 2000 Division I state meet, the junior broke the meet and state records in the 100 meters with a time of 11.59 seconds on June 2. The next day, she won the 100 in 11.71 and the 200 title in 23.69, a time that lowered the state mark she already held.

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

“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.

Joseph resigns as coach of Silver Knights By JARROD ULREY

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

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-

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.” julrey@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com

Bernard Master Tennis Classic

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

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

Allare, 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.” pbatterson@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com

Former Westerville North High School track and field standouts Brian and Jeff Hannaford called winning the four-mile relay in the New Balance Outdoor Nationals a form of redemption. The Hannafords, who are fraternal twins, teamed with fellow 2011 North graduate Ryan Weldon and North junior Jacob Dumford to win the race in 17 minutes, 38.17 seconds. The meet was held June 18 at North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro, N.C. Winners received a medal and a national championship ring. Brian Hannaford was returning to the track after a disappointing finish to his high school career. He was in position to win the 3,200 meters in the Division I state meet on June 4 at Ohio State when he lost his right shoe with about four laps remaining. A competitor stepped on Hannaford’s heel about 600 meters into the race. He anchored the winning relay at nationals. “I wanted to redeem myself and prove to some people that I could do some good things,” he said. Jeff Hannaford, who ran the third leg of the race, missed his senior track season because of academic reasons. He also missed the cross country state meet last fall because of a disciplinary issue unrelated to the sport. “I wanted to redeem myself at the national meet,” Jeff said. “It was awesome,” Brian said of running with his brother. “We had some high goals for the (spring) season in the (3,200 relay), so finally getting to race again was huge.” The Hannafords will continue their cross country and track careers at Ohio State, which they

chose over Dayton. Dumford ran the opening leg at nationals and was followed by Weldon. “It was a good chance to run against some pretty good competition,” Dumford said. Weldon hopes to walk on the track team at Ohio State. He chose the Buckeyes over a scholarship offer from Miami University. “We were really excited,” Weldon said. “We were just shooting to be All-Americans, so winning was a huge shock. The car ride back to Ohio was awesome.” The top six finishers in each event were named All-Americans. North tied for 18th (10 points) behind the first-place Knightdale (N.C.) Track and Field Club (28). “The (relay) win was a fitting end to the high school careers of three of North’s most talented distance squad,” said track coach Johnny Jackson, who did not attend the meet. “We have had faster individual runners at North, but not as many at one time. They have been working toward this for the past two years, so it was nice to see that with a lot of skill and a little luck everything worked out as planned.” North distance coach Tom Brumlik attended the meet and coached the relay. Gahanna’s Jake Blankenship won the pole vault with an effort of 17 feet, 3/4 of an inch. Blankenship, who will be a senior in the fall, won the event at state by matching the state record of 17-0 set by Olentangy Liberty’s Joey Uhle. Blankenship, who competed unattached at nationals, tied for 18th with 10 points. “I was very excited on winning because I did not expect to win at all,” Blankenship said. “There were so many other vaulters vaulting higher than me. I was glad to take the national

title, especially as a junior.” Uhle, who finished second (166) to Blankenship at state, also finished second (16-8 3/4) at nationals. Liberty graduate Chris Uhle, Joey’s twin brother, tied Cameron Meyer of Lake Charles, La., for sixth (16-3/4). Joey will attend the Air Force Academy and Chris is a Virginia Tech recruit. Liberty tied for 60th (7) at nationals. Bryn Campbell, who will be a senior in the fall at Canal Winchester, finished sixth (195-2) in the boys hammer throw. New Albany graduate Taneisha Cordell finished second (2:09.9) in the 800 meters behind Kimberley Ficenec of Stafford, Va. (2:09.84). Cordell, who will compete at the University of Miami (Fla.), had won the event at state (2:07.35). Cordell, Mycah Mason, Mirra Galbreath and Lexi Simpson finished 17th (9:28.95) in the 3,200 relay. Mason graduated from New Albany in May, Galbreath will be a junior and Simpson will be a sophomore. Mason was 22nd (1:05.2) in the 400 hurdles. New Albany tied for 47th (8) behind the first-place Junior Striders (N.C.) Track Club (32). “What I believe this does is that it gives the girls exposure to the next level,” New Albany coach Otis Winston said. “Last year when I took Taneisha down as a junior, I ran into J.J. Clark, the head track coach at Tennessee, and I was able to tell him about Taneisha. Three months later, she was on an official visit to Tennessee, LSU, Illinois and Kentucky. It really got the ball rolling for us with her recruiting.”

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.”

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

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

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

MENU

Weenie’s Address: 1644 N. High St., campus Phone: (614) 754-1427 Web: myweenies.com by SHELLEY MANN Hours: 10:30 a.m.-12 a.m. Monday-Wednesday, 10:30 a.m.-3 a.m. Thursday-Saturday, The Hottie is well worth the upgrade. It’s 11 a.m.-8 p.m. Sunday

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

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

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

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

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

The halfpound burgers, made with freshly ground beef, are crowned with pancetta and cheddar. Most desserts, save for Graeter’s ice cream, are made on premises. They include a lemon tart, chocolate crème brulee and cheesecake.
