Powell holding meetings on costs By BONNIE BUTCHER ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Powell City Council’s finance committee is holding meetings to look for ways the city can cut operation costs to help pay for capital improvement projects. One session was held June 14 and another is scheduled for 7

p.m. Tuesday, July 12. Committee members are reviewing fiscal and operation details of the engineering, city council and public information departments. The process will continue monthly through Tuesday, Oct. 11. Voters last November defeat-

ed an income tax increase that was slated for capital improvements for 10 years. On June 14, finance director Debra Miller described responsibilities of the department, which has three full-time employees. Those responsibilities include processing Workers’ Compensation premiums and bids for bank

company services, researching to see if city residents or people employed in the city are filing taxes, helping to collect delinquent taxes, managing the city’s various investments, providing monthly reports, tracking inventory, negotiating contracts and processing records requests. It also processes city payroll,

accounts payable, state-required financial reporting and debt management. Miller gave committee members a list of ways they can evaluate the department’s performance. The list includes the turnaround time for accounts payable, and the results and recommendations of state audits. She said

it would be good to evaluate the department on how accessible its information is to the residents. City manager Steve Lutz presented the report for the administration department, which has two full-time employees. Lutz oversees the city’s variSee FINANCE, page A7

Orange Township trustees on June 20 took a preliminary step toward placing a fire levy on the Nov. 8 ballot. Trustees Rob Quigley, Jennifer Christian and Nelson Katz decided by consensus to request the Delaware County auditor to determine how much millage would be needed for two levy scenarios. One would raise $7 million a year and the other would generate $7.75 million annually. Assistant Fire Chief Matt Noble told trustees a three-year, five-mill operating levy approved by voters in 2009 will generate about $4.6 million this year. The department has a $7-million budget for 2011 and had a cash carryover from 2010 of about $4 million. “I think it’s a good idea to get started now” on discussing a possible levy, said Quigley, chairman of the board of trustees. Katz provided information showing the fire department has done a good job holding the line on costs during the past few years. The cash carryover, however, continues to dwindle each year and will be less than $1 million by 2014 without any new money. The township has about 22,000 residents. “I think we’ve done well in holding costs down,” said Katz, the trustees’public safety liaison. “We’re going to need a levy at an increased level from what we currently have.” The department has a staff of 67, including 43 full-time firefighters and 17 part-timers, and has delayed for several years buying a new engine and ambulance, and hiring a training officer and three more full-time firefighters, Noble said. “If we put it (a levy) on in November and it does not pass, it will give us time to adjust to put it on in May (2012),” Noble said. Quigley said trustees will have time to discuss the issue after the auditor provides the millage amounts. The deadline to place an issue on the Nov. 8 ballot is Aug. 10. Katz said seeking a levy for five years instead of three would provide more stability for the department and citizens. Collections of the current levy will expire Dec. 31, 2012. Also at the meeting, trustees unanimously approved rezoning nearly 2.9 acres at Rail Timber See ORANGE TOWNSHIP TRUSTEES, page A2

City still working toward opening business incubator By BONNIE BUTCHER ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Powell is taking more steps toward opening a business incubator, a facility designed to assist start-up businesses. The city’s finance committee reviewed contract agreements for the incubator, a city-owned building at 44 N. Liberty St. The agreements still are being developed and must be approved by city council when finalized. According to the current draft, the city would lease the building to the Powell Community Im-

provement Corp. (PCIC) for $10 for three years. The incubator will serve as startup space for four small officebased businesses. City officials have said it is an interim step between an in-home office and a more expensive lease in a commercial building. The PCIC would help ease the costs of opening an office by paying the basic expenses including local phone lines, electricity, gas, sewer, water and trash collection. The businesses would have to

Orange zoning inspector will retire June 30 By BONNIE BUTCHER ThisWeek Community Newspapers

By Adam Cairns/ThisWeek

Orange Township zoning inspector Richard Gladman is retiring at the end of June after serving the community for nearly 25 years.

After almost 25 years as Orange Township zoning inspector, Richard “Dick” Gladman is retiring. In 1964, when Gladman, his wife and four children moved to Orange Township, “There was nothing but rusty fence and animals down Route 23.” He owned Gladman Custom Home Builders at the time. In 1986, after Gladman served a year on the township zoning commission, the township trustees See GLADMAN, page A5

ORANGE TOWNSHIP TRUSTEES Continued from page A1 Way and Olentangy Crossings East for independent-living senior housing. The township zoning commission, in a meeting last month, had recommended approval of the project. “We have spent the better part of the spring working with your zoning board. We feel we have accomplished (what we need to),” said Lynn Dalton, who represented the Franklin Foundation, which will build and operate the senior housing. The Franklin Foundation will build a 20-unit building that will have 19 one-bedroom units and one two-bedroom unit. No more than two people can live in a unit and one person must be 62 or older. Dalton said before the meeting that a grant from the federal Hous-

ing and Urban Development department will pay for the bulk of the $2.4 million project. Construction on the site, north of the Kroger store on the east side of U.S. Route 23, could start in September and take about a year. “I know it was a lengthy process. We’re glad you’re interested in having your facility in Orange Township,” Christian told Dalton and two other Franklin Foundation representatives. In other business during the seven-hour meeting, trustees: • Created an economic advisory board to help attract and retain businesses. The board will have five members, including possibly someone from the Orange Township Business Association. Interested people may apply for the positions with trustees appointing board members.

Quigley said such a board is needed because the township continues to grow. It will operate much like other non-paid volunteer township boards and, at first, probably will meet every two months. • Will work with the county engineer’s office on the next step needed to make improvements at the Orange Road-U.S. Route 23 intersection to deal with congestion and other traffic problems. The county did a preliminary study of the intersection in January and township trustees last month decided to ask the county to move forward with the project. The township plans to seek Ohio Public Works Commission funding to help pay for the bulk of the estimated $1 million project. Among possible improvements would be turn lanes on West Orange Road.

Liberty address changes to zoning code By BONNIE BUTCHER ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Liberty Township trustees on June 20 discussed updating the township zoning code to reflect changes in state law. Trustees scheduled a hearing at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 11, at the township hall, 7761 Liberty Road. The proposed zoning code change would allow trustees to overturn zoning commission decisions with a 2-1 vote. In the past, trustees needed a unanimous 3-0 vote to overturn or modify a zoning commission decision. Trustees said a September 2008 amendment to the Ohio Revised Code changed “from unanimous to majority the vote required of ... a board of township trustees to deny or modify zoning amendments recommended by a county or township zoning commission.” The change was recommended by the Delaware County Regional Planning Commission.

Trustees also waived a $600 administrative review application fee and approved a roughly 23-by-23 foot concrete “patio/mini basketball court” for Joseph Johnson, a resident of Jamestown Drive. Johnson said he had no problem with the $75 zoning permit fee, but thought the $600 fee to take the plans before the zoning commission seemed excessive for the concrete pad. Trustee Mary Carducci said, “Six-hundred bucks to put a basketball (court) in your backyard. That’s a lot of money.” Fiscal officer Mark Gerber agreed, wondering if a concrete patio should be considered a structure and need to follow the zoning procedure of a structure. Johnson originally addressed trustees on the issue June 6. Trustees at the time asked him to get approval from his homeowners association and come back before them. Trustees also waived penalty fees totaling $150 for residents Adam and Lisa Hartong of

Hunters Bend, who built “two gazebo-like structures without the required zoning permits.” The Hartongs agreed to pay the two $75 permit fees, but requested a waiver on the penalty fees. Trustees also: • Promoted firefighter Brian Niemet to lieutenant. • Recognized Cody Pickett of Boy Scout Troop 900 for his community service project in cleaning up Thomas Cemetery. • Approved an agreement with Total Tennis Inc. of Columbus for $16,867 to repair tennis and basketball courts in Liberty Park. The contract states the “cracks will reappear within no definite period of time.” Trustee Mary Carducci said she was concerned about the durability. Trustee Curt Sybert said companies typically do not guarantee such work, particularly patch jobs. Township attorney Craig Paynter said the township should ask for a warranty on the work for six to 12 months.

Olentangy district recognizes Schuette for years of service By BONNIE BUTCHER ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Officials from the Olentangy school district have recognized Liberty Township resident John Schuette for his years of service on the district’s development committee. Schuette is one of the founding members of the committee credited with helping to cut costs on building construction and encouraging developers to donate land for schools. On June 16, school board vice president Dave King, who has served on the development committee, presented Schuette with the “Community Service Recognition” award which “honors community members who have shown unselfish devotion to the Olentangy schools.” School and Liberty Township officials made a special trip to Wintersong Village, where Schuette is working to regain the use of his legs which were paralyzed after a back surgery, he said. “The board appreciates the time and dedication you’ve given,” King said.

of service was 1997, said Andy Kerr, also a founding member and a former board member now working as executive director of operations and facilities. Schuette said the committee was formed because residents were concerned about the $14-million cost to build Wyandot Run Elementary School in the early 1990s. The committee includes people with expertise in the construction industry. It worked on

the development and construction of Scioto Ridge and Arrowhead elementary schools, Kerr said. Through savings on such things as the types of construction materials used and eliminating locker rooms and showers from elementary buildings, the committee was able to get the cost of an elementary school down to $8.6 million, Schuette said, noting they See SCHUETTE, page A4

Sheriff requests $6.2 million jail expansion ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Delaware County Sheriff’s Office is requesting a $6.2million expansion to the county jail, in part to meet new state requirements on storing DNA evidence. The proposal includes a temperature-controlled 33,800square-foot storage center that would replace the four facilities and two trailers the county now uses to hold evidence, Sheriff Walter Davis said. He declined to identify their locations. The proposal also would be the first of six long-term proposed phases totaling $34.2 million. The overall plan would put all sheriff facilities at the county jail on U.S. Route 42N. Currently, some administration is located at 149 N. Sandusky St. The DNA collection and preservation requirements take effect next month. They were part of Senate Bill 77, passed last year. The sheriff’s office will be required to keep DNA evidence for any person arrested for a felony. DNA evidence from a crime scene must be kept for 30 years.

For some convicted sex offenders, evidence must be kept for the suspect’s lifetime. After 30 years, the sheriff’s office can request to destroy the evidence by sending letters to the offender, the attorney of record for that offender, the Ohio Public Defender’s office, the county prosecutor and the Ohio attorney general, all of which have a year to respond. “It will become very hard to destroy evidence after the 30 years,” Davis said. Previously, DNA evidence was collected only if a suspect was convicted. DNA from a sex offense was to be kept 25 years. For all other types of crime, the sheriff’s office was required to hold all evidence through all appeals, Davis said. After the appeals process, the sheriff’s office could then petition a court to destroy the evidence. The county’s ability to destroy evidence has been greatly diminished by the legislation, chief deputy John Petrozzi told Delaware County commissioners on June 13. “It’s going to present some challenges for us in law enforcement,” Petrozzi said.

Other proposed legislation that attempts to alleviate overcrowding in Ohio prison systems would also affect the county jail. Senate Bill 10 and House Bill 186 would give judges the ability to sentence non-violent fourthand fifth-degree felons to intermediate sentencing instead of prison time, Davis said. He said the county jail population would increase by 37 percent if the legislation is approved. Nonviolent fourth- and fifth-degree felons will be housed in the county jail, awaiting placement in treatment programs, community based corrections facilities, day reporting centers, veterans facilities, halfway houses, work release and probation. “When individuals violate their terms of probation, they will be sent directly back to our facility,” he said. Each inmate costs the jail about $65 per day, and nearly 250 inmates currently are in the facility, Davis said. Many fourth- and fifth-degree felons are nonviolent drug users who commit crimes, Davis said. These can be drug crimes or crimes to support their drug habits.

SCHUETTE Continued from page A3 eliminated “gingerbread,” items that are decorative, but cost a lot, such as terrazzo tile. Kerr said Schuette is “one special dude,” and the community and district are thankful for his contribution. Schuette, a former Liberty Township trustee, said he got involved with the school district even though his children were out of school. Knowing population growth would continue to come to the area, he thought it important to construct good, but less costly schools. “My kids were gone from the district, but I was still paying taxes here,” Schuette said. “I got involved because I was upset with the money they were spending unnecessarily for the school buildings. It was important to get involved because you

had well-meaning school board members that didn’t have expertise in the field and didn’t understand the cost.” Schuette said the committee members have expertise in “every aspect of the building.” “I was a site contractor, and you’ve got to have a site that you can convert cheaply into a school site or one that you want to stay away from,” Schuette said of the expertise he brings to the group. Schuette, a lifelong resident of the area, said it’s important for residents to get involved. “It makes a better community if you care about your community,” he said. Schuette said he will continue to serve on the committee, despite his paralysis. “If you bite something off, you chew,” Schuette said.

Commentary & opinion Just thinking

Father’s Day: It’s not just a spin-off holiday It’s Father’s Day, a holiday created to complement the one for mothers. But you knew that, right? It is a truth universally acknowledged that a married man in possession of children must be in want of a day to call his own. That’s what Jane Austen would have written, had she been inspired to pen another story. At any rate, a little light research has yielded the information that Father’s Day was in fact established twice, first in July 1908 by a woman in West Virginia, who wanted to honor 210 fathers who had died in a 1907 mining disaster. (The thought was derivative even then, since Mother’s Day had been celebrated for the first time that year just a few miles away. Not to take anything away from the Mother of all Father’s Days, whose name was Grace Golden Clayton.) A day for fathers was the least of West Virginia’s concerns, however, and the first Father’s Day came, went, and wasn’t celebrated again until someone else reinvented the idea two years later. This person — another woman, Sonora Dodd of Spokane, Wash., — also took her idea from Anna Jarvis’Mother’s Day, which helps to explain why every new movie and television show is either a remake — “Leave It to Beaver” — or a spin-off — “CSI Miami,” “CSI Las Vegas,” “CSI New York.” Had this nation had this creative mindset in the 1950s, board games would be limited to Candyland variations: Return to Candyland, Candyland Revisited, Once Again to Candyland and so on. But about fathers, the celebration of whom “typically involves gift-giving, special dinners and family-oriented activities,” according to a notoriously unreliable Internet source. In this case, however, I’m going to go way out on a limb and say that’s a fairly accurate summary

of Father’s Day plans. Mother’s Day celebrations necessarily run to restaurants, since Mom shouldn’t have MARGO to cook on her BARTLETT special day, but on Father’s Day, no such inhibitions exist, and everyone can come home, pile gifts by Dad’s plate and perhaps go out for ice cream later. Dad will insist on paying. In fact, our two daughters and their husbands proposed a holiday plan that involves my stepping into the kitchen only to fetch plates and glasses. They’re bringing the Father’s Day special from Ray-Ray’s Hog Pit, a Clintonville street vendor, with extras from who knows where, possibly other street vendors. In this way we’ll all eat well — better, I’m sure we all realize, than we’d eat if I produced the meal — and the only expectations of the day will be conversation and — I’m guessing here, but see if I’m not right — a little gift-opening on the part

of my husband. I’ve said before in this space that as a person who grew up in a home with a single mother I little appreciated what a father could be to his children until I watched my own husband with his daughters. It was years before I had learned the lesson completely, before I thoroughly, truly, instinctively understood — or as instinctively as it is possible for me to understand — that he is every bit as essential a parent as I am. “Who needs a father?” I used to say, even as I cringed selfconsciously in school when words such as “daddy longlegs” or “Trinidad” were uttered. Well, now I know. I needed a father. And my daughters did, too. Lucky for them, they had — and they continue to have — one of the great ones. After Ray-Ray’s, after talking and talking and maybe taking the dogs to a park for some crazy play, we’ll go out for ice cream. My husband will insist on paying. Email ThisWeek’s Margo Bartlett at

GLADMAN TO RETIRE Continued from page A1 asked him to serve as zoning inspector. He passed the building company on to his son and accepted the position. It was quiet then. The township office was in the little brick building near the northeast corner of Orange and South Old State roads. “It was fairly quiet. You’d have one or two rezonings of somebody’s land a year for a few years, and then all of a sudden everything broke loose,” Gladman said. Gladman saw the township through the rapid growth of the late 1990s and early 2000s. He was instrumental in getting the township through those years, said Jim Agan, a trustee for 12 years who also served on the board of zoning appeals for four years. It was a challenging time, Agan said, and having the knowledge base that Gladman provided was necessary for managing the growth. “As trustees came and went, Dick was always the resource for zoning policy: How and why it had been done in a certain way,” Agan said. “The procedure in the township was that each trustee would be assigned as a liaison to different departments. The initial process was always to have the rookie trustee be assigned zoning liaison, because

Orange Township zoning inspector Richard “Dick” Gladman discusses his years of service to the township and his retirement plans on a video at

Dick could educate them. “For many years, the zoning department was the only fulltime department and Dick could take that new trustee and teach them because zoning was the major issue over the past 20 years,” Agan said. “And Dick was there holding the reins on what we could and couldn’t do and why. In 2000-04, there was an explosion of zoning permits and Dick ... trained (assistant) Tom Farahay to back him up.” Gladman said it is not a job for making friends. “I have made a lot of enemies because I have done the jobs that (the township was) paying me to do,” Gladman said. The biggest mistake people make is not checking a property’s zoning before buying it, he said. Another common mistake is not checking with the zoning office before building a deck or putting in a pool. Gladman always has been fair, said zoning commissioner Roy Wilson, who has served 16 years total between the commission and the board of zoning appeals. “Dick goes to the book. If it’s

in the book that you don’t put a sign there, then you don’t put a sign there,” Wilson said. “He treated everybody the same, whether it was a close friend or somebody he didn’t have the slightest idea who they were.” Wilson said Gladman also helped a great deal in developing the township’s zoning code and land use plan. Gladman said he starts his day driving the township to check that property owners are following the zoning codes. He said he feels confident in leaving the township in Farahay’s hands. “Anyone can come in here and write permits. That’s not a big deal. But when it comes to knowledge of the township, knowing that there’s something special about a piece of property, and that you need to look it up is important,” Gladman said. He isn’t sure what he’ll do in his retirement, though he said the elderly poodle, which he and his late wife Rose raised, will keep him busy. He’ll retire on June 30. Sept. 3 would mark his 25th year. He’s 81 years old. On June 9, the Delaware County commissioners recognized Gladman for his years of service, which included “serving the Delaware County Regional Planning Commission during two decades of rapid development in the county,” documents from the meeting said.

Family-friendly Powell Festival opens Friday at Village Green By BONNIE BUTCHER ThisWeek Staff Writer The fun and family friendly Powell Festival will run from 5 to 11 p.m. Friday and noon to 11 p.m. Saturday, June 2425, at Village Green Park, 47 Hall St., Powell. Entrance and parking is free, as are most activities, said organizer Anna Steck, executive director of Historic Downtown Powell Inc. Local talent, businesses and services play a big part in the 2011 Powell Festival. To celebrate its 15th year, organizers are staging more musical performances than in previous years. “Since it is our 15th year celebration, we went from last year’s nine to 12 musical performances this year. We’re showcasing three teen bands. (The members of) all three are Olentangy Liberty High School students,” Steck said. “We’re really trying to bring in the teens.” The teen bands are “The Lion, the Squirrel, and a Man with a Moustache,” “Lux” and “Arilia.” The bands will take the stage for 45-minute sets, beginning at 1:15 p.m. Saturday, June 25. Sharp Circle Band is the headline band performing from 8 to 11 p.m. Friday. The eight-piece band includes a horn section and performs hits from the 1960s, ’70s and ’80s. Farrell & Stephenson is the headline band performing from 6:45 to 10:15 p.m. Saturday. The fireworks show be-

gins as the band’s set ends at 10:15 p.m. Also new to this year’s event is a balloon artist provided by the festival’s major sponsor, KeyBank. The artist will perform at KeyBank’s booth in Sponsor Circle 6-8 p.m. Friday and 1-4 p.m and 5-7 p.m. Saturday. Other returning attractions include the Teen Scene, sponsored by SuperGames, which offers an activities course of giant inflatable games and rides. Teens can purchase an all-day pass for $10. The Toddler Zone features inflatable toys for little ones and is free. The Turtle Lady & Visiting Animals will visit from 5-8 p.m. both evenings, an event sponsored by Sawmill Auto Wash. All family members can enjoy the tekOrange family train ride, Steck said. All ages can fit on the train. The event includes more than 200 venders and booth spaces, all kinds of games for children, educational stations, arts and craft vendors, for-profit and nonprofit informational booths, and a food and beverage court. The excitement will start at the festival entrance with a Columbus Blue Jackets street hockey game, “Captured at the Powell Festival” photos of children by Kirch Group Technology and multiple question and answer sessions with Powell mayor Art Schultz. Guests can quiet their rumbling stomachs at the Food Court and Dining Area and

The Delaware County Sheriff’s Office Mobile Command Center will be on site, as will the Liberty Township Fire Department fire safety trailer and the Delaware County Soil and Water Conservation District educational learning unit. Live performances by local musicians and dancers take place nonstop throughout the fest on the Technicare main stage. Some of the other entertainment includes Village Academy Varsity Jazz Band, Six Pack Theory, Olentangy Youth Athletic Association Drill Team, singer Morgan Maranto, Prestige Music Studios performance, and country artist Sarah J. Rutherford. “It is the largest (Powell-area)

outdoor community event for local residents and their families,” Steck said. “First and foremost, it is an extremely family friendly festival and we take great strides to make sure it remains that way.” Steck said about 20,000 people attend the two-day event. The Powell Police Department wants to remind drivers about special festival-hour parking, Steck said. During the event hours, police make South Liberty Street southbound-only and create more than 100 parking spaces on the west side of the street. The handicap parking area is in the one-way alley in front of the city hall, and vehicles must enter that parking area from Hall Street. Free city parking also is available on North Depot Street, at 44 N. Liberty St., and at the public parking spaces along Olentangy Street. For more information, visit Powell Festival on Facebook.

FINANCE COMMITTEE Continued from page A1 ous departments and department heads, oversees the implementation of council-enacted policies, updates city council on city business, oversees the city’s long-range planning and is active in a variety of community events and meetings. The department’s secretary/receptionist provides notary service, schedules public meeting rooms, scans public documents, registers all parks program participants, serves as mail clerk, assembles welcome packets and proofreads council minutes, among other duties. Committee members also: • Heard income tax revenues have increased. The revenue by June 14 was about $2.53 million. Income tax revenue was $2.43 million on the same date in 2010. She attributed the increase to the 2010 annexation of a 26.3- acre commercial development, Market at Liberty Crossing, collection of delinquent income taxes and growth. Expenditures are within budget, Miller said.

Page A7

The committee also: • Heard an increase in fees by the Delaware County auditor’s office that in March required city council to increase the 2011 appropriations by $7,000. • Reviewed a report from the city’s insurance broker that showed the average per employee cost for family insurance was $7,430 in 2005 and $13,716 in 2011. • Reviewed a report of a survey on insurance from Ohio’s State Employee Relations Board. Miller said SERB’s survey is based on about 1,000 cities, townships, schools and counties. The statewide average cost per public employee per month is $842. Powell’s average is $843. • Received a schedule for the 2012 budget process. Departments will turn in budget requests by Aug 12, the finance committee will review the budget draft Oct. 25 and Nov. 8, and council will start hearings on Nov. 1.

Continued from page A1 pay for such extra costs as longdistance phone calls. Start-up businesses would apply for the opportunity to occupy one of the offices. The PCIC will decide what businesses are given an office, based on input from Historic Downtown Powell Inc. (HDPI), the organization that will handle the day-to-day managing of the incubator. The startup businesses would

hold a one-year license to occupy the office space, with an option for renewal if both parties agree. They would be responsible for providing liability insurance for their business, though the PCIC also has liability insurance. With six months of notification, the city or the PCIC can cancel any of the agreements involving the incubator. HDPI renovated a portion of the building for its office. The incubator part of the building was renovated with a Community

Block Grant through Delaware County. The city helps fund PCIC and its programs, which include approved incentives for businesses that move to the city. The PCIC goal is to be self-sustaining. The PCIC has been in existence about a year. Delaware County Economic Development director Gus Comstock, who helped the city secure the Community Block G rant, has said that incubators are a valuable tool for economic development.

The Beat Arts, eats and fun in central Ohio

FAB 5 By Jim Fischer “We’re the young gen1 eration …” Well, we all were, once. Doesn’t mean that we can’t still have a little fun celebrating the 45th anniversary of The Monkees. Of course, when The Beat was the young generation, we watched the TV show, bought and listened to the records, took our sandwich to school in the lunchbox — heck, we tried to wear the clothes, or at least something like them. As an adult, we’ve had the pleasure of interviewing both Mickey Dolenz and Peter Tork, two of the three original Monkees, with Davy Jones, that infrequently still make these treks to remind folks that “We may be coming to your town.” As in, Lifestyle Communities Pavilion Friday, June 24.

of a show as the Columbus Symphony Orchestra presents “The Music of Michael Jackson” at Picnic with the Pops. Aided by a full band fronted by singers James Delisco, Kelli Reisen and Felecia Barton, and conducted by Larry Baird, the CSO will pay tribute to the King of Pop on many of his best and well-known songs. Tickets are $20 for adults and $8 for children age 3-14. For tickets or other information, call (614) 228-8600. Kenny Chesney is the

3 embodiment of the American Dream. Armed with a dash of talent and an unquenchable desire to succeed, Chesney became a star. Heck, he’s not even confined to “country-music superstar” any more — he has transcended into

pop culture fixture. A n d while his career in Nashville began with a songwriter contract, he’s largely using s o n g s penned by others, meaning he’s making some good, albeit behind-the-scenes, people some money — like Matraca Berg, who, prior to her concert here last month, admitted to The Beat she is often plagued by selfdoubt. Berg co-wrote Chesney’s latest single, a duet with Grace Potter titled You & Tequila. Chesney plays Crew Stadium Saturday, June 25. Tickets are $94.50-$62.50. Call 1-800-7453000. Umphrey’s McGee is a genuine prog-rock band, the 4 musical test-tube baby of the Dixie Dregs and King Crimson. The Chicago sextet is equally adept at changing time signatures and the occasional pomp and circumstance as it is at ripping off groovy vocal harmonies. Improvisation is a staple of the UM live set. Tickets for the band’s Sunday, June 26, show at Lifestyle Communities Pavilion are $20/$25. Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears (as perfect a name for a stompin’-good blues-soul outfit as you’re likely to find) opens. Call 1-800-745-3000.

Umphrey’s McGee

Radhuni is more exotic, less expensive than Indian Oven Lovers of the Indian Oven — and the Oven’s a player with tons of lovers — might suddenly be motivated to stray. See, the Oven’s handsome younger brother has blown into town, and he’s just as hot as the Oven, only even more interesting and exotic. Plus — and this’ll be a big plus for potential paramours — this one sits in an easily accessible neighborhood. Located on Olentangy River Road near Ackerman, Radhuni is the attractive newbie, and its seductive cuisine and proximity to Clintonville, OSU, Upper Arlington and Grandview portend a lengthy list of future friends. Count me in. Radhuni (Bengali for a potent and popular spice) occupies a brightly colored and sleek space that’s long and narrow, completely kitschless and virtually decoration-free. Other than few large and unconventional architectural storage elements, the eye-catchers are limited to a fire-engine red, sky-high ceiling and smooth, cream-colored walls

MENU by G.A. Benton further cooled by deep swaths of soothing blue paint. Radhuni’s food is as distinctive as its appearance. Oh, sure, you can get all of those ho-hum, same-old same-olds like tandoori chicken, but what makes this place special are much rarer dishes, many Bengali in origin. For a hearty starter, target the large and excellent alu kabobs ($6.25). Considering they’re huge and un-skewered tuber croquettes (alu means potato), they’re misleadingly labeled. Considering they’re absolutely delicious — a puffy and plump quartet of crisp breadcrumbed, cumin-kissed mashers with chopped hard egg in the middle — who cares? Equally fun, if a bit greasy, were fried Indochinese treats called cabbage chick-

en rolls ($7). These were like handmade spring rolls jammed with cabbage and a bunch of super-satisfying, mustard seed-powered, minced curried chicken. Chicken again was uncommonly interesting in two standout features listed under House Specialties (where I

was directed by well-informed waiters.) Chickpea chicken ($13) was a bone-in half-chicken stewed in a rich split garbanzo bean base bearing an intensified, dal-like flavor. Adding to the fingerlicking party were turmeric, ginger and a blast of what tasted like that crazy (and for me, addictive) Indian condiment called mixed pickle. The roasted chicken ($14) is one of those killer dinners with a prosaic name belying mouth-walloping flavors. Another half-bird on the bone was perfectly, succulently roasted and drenched in a complex, sweet and spicy, thick and sticky sauce featuring long-cooked onions with a zingy and cardamomleavened curry kick. Moving beyond poultry, the shrimp biryani ($17) had a lot going on, also. Basically a shareable saffron rice dish, it was populated with sweet little freshwater shrimp, coconut, raisins, crushed nuts, peas and Indian aromatics. My only problem with the luscious, unctuous and falling-off-the-bone Ben-

Radhuni Address: 2895 Olentangy River Road, campus Phone: (614) 447-9760 Web: gali lamb shank ($15) was that I wanted more. A glistening, smallish leg of lamb was slathered with a tangy, rich and vinegar-aroused gravy deepened by red and green peppers. Potatoes and rice were provided to sop up every last bit of the wonderful sauce — but if you still lick your plate when nobody’s looking, I’d understand. For a refreshing but comforting dessert, try the cool and pleasantly viscous fruit custard ($5). Healthier than it tastes, it’s tangy homemade yogurt moderately sweetened with “a touch of cream” and chopped mangoes and mandarin oranges. Sure, Indian Oven also offers that, but (shhhh) it’s cheaper at Radhuni — and there are more things to do afterward nearby.

New Yabo’s Tacos touts chef-inspired fresh menu Classically trained by some of the best chefs in the country, Scott Boles has changed culinary directions, to say the least. On June 17, Boles and partners Brent King and Greg Debbe opened Yabo’s Tacos in the former Giammarco’s Pizza & Pasta site at 7097 state Route 3 in Westerville. But it’s not just any taco joint, Boles said. “I have my standards,” he said. They include beef and pork shoulder, each braised for 12 hours in a signature blend of spices. The fish tacos, made of cod loins, are topped with an ancho chile aioli. Yabo’s offers three distinct, homemade sauces: Serrano-lime (hot), chipotle (medium) and “Sissy” (mild) with a base of tomato and chiles. Each is offered tableside and for retail sale. Noth-

ing is frozen. “It’s still slow food,” Boles said. “It’s from-scratch preparation.” Yabo’s menu is pretty straightforward: tacos and burritos, using either white corn or flour tortillas, plus rice bowls and wraps. Aside from braised meats and fish, the menu offers grilled steak, shrimp, chicken and vegetables, and sautéed ground beef. Several salads topped with house-made dressing, plus a white bean and chicken chili and a vegetarian soup round out the menu selections. The 3,000-square-foot interior seats 75, with an additional 50 on the patio. The place has a full liquor license. (Giammarco’s has since moved down the street.)

Boles acknowledges the existing rivalry in the fresh-Mex market from taco trucks, Mexican restaurants, Chipotle, Qdoba and newcomer Hot Head Burritos, which has plans for at least a dozen stores in the Columbus market. “I expect us to see more competition in the future,” he said. “Hopefully, we’ve got a jump on them.” The partners have plans to open five more Yabo’s in the Columbus market. With inexpensive fare, beer and lots of TVs, they’re going after the sports-bar segment of the industry. Boles received an associate’s degree in hotel and restaurant management from Northeastern University and an associate’s degree in culinary arts from Bunker Hill Community College. He considers his top mentors to be Jim Berrini, former personal chef for President John F. Kennedy, and Arthur Bucceri, chef at the Ritz-Carlton in Boston. “I suppose what they taught me the most are the lessons of technique,” Boles said. “Technique is key, giving you a style that’s your own and hopefully different and stands out more than other cooks.” Working mostly in resorts across the country, and owning two restaurants of his own, Boles said hasn’t been an active chef for more than 15 years. His life after the restaurant business included everything from being a district manager for a vending-machine business to hawking cell phones to joining the corporate world. But nothing had to do with food. He cooked for many charity events and taught cooking classes to keep fresh, but the restaurant business kept tugging at his apron strings. But he didn’t want to live in the kitchen, something required in a full-service restaurant. By Chris Parker/ThisWeek “Now I’m having a different kind of fun,” he said.

Heather Kamann & ThisWeek Sell Home & Find Buyers

Wedgewood Golf & Country Club represents a unique alternative to clubs in our area, One that encompasses family and true club tradition. We want you to be part of the

Wedgewood family.... family....exclusively. exclusively. I needed to sell my house due to a change in my job/financial status; however, my home value had declined since I purchased several years ago. Heather diligently worked with my lender to negotiate a short sale and she stuck with me every step of the way. Her marketing strategy gave my home a great amount of exposure, and her persistence helped move the short sale process along quickly. Because of the work of Heather and her team, I was able to avoid a possible foreclosure and can now move forward in my life. Heather is an exceptional realtor and I am very grateful to her for her continuous hard work, dedication, and constant commitment to helping me through the short sale process. Thanks Heather!

Liberty Fire Dept. receives grant The Liberty Township Fire Department is the recipient of a $9,538.34 grant from the Aladdin Shrine Hospital Association for Children. The non-matching grant will fund the purchase of five “Broselow Bags,” pediatric-specific kits that carry medical supplies and drugs for children. The bags are designed according to a color code system, with color-coded “pre-loaded” pouches containing everything necessary to treat young patients. The color-coded system follows a standard established by Nationwide Children’s Hospital. The bags should be in service by the end of the month, according to a news release from the fire department. The grant also will pay for new electronic thermometers for each of the EMS vehicles.

Financial finesse

Don’t let thieves spoil your vacation First, it’s great that you are aware of the risks and are seeking ways to protect yourself before you become a victim. It’s much easier to take precautions now than have to restore your identity and reputation later. Being away from home and in unfamiliar places could bring increased risk to consumers, opening doors to thieves. More purchases than usual are made this time of the year, as well, so additional withdrawals might go unnoticed until you get back to home base. Your identity could be stolen in a number of ways, including loss or theft of your wallet, purse or credit card; stealing your mail or taking documents from your trash; skimming information from the magnetic strip on credit or debit cards; giving personal or financial information over the phone to strangers; or hacking into your computer. If you are catching up on paying bills or doing any online shopping while you are on vacation, be sure you are using secure web-

sites. Be careful in stores to protect your wallet, purse and credit cards and watch to be sure store GABRIELLE personnel hanWHITTAKER dle your credit card properly. Also watch out for people hovering near you or using a camera phone.

Have You Heard?

TWO OUT OF THREE A new study shows that 63 percent of those aged 70 years and older have hearing loss that ranges from mild to severe. Perhaps even more telling is the fact that only one fifth of senior Americans with hearing loss use a hearing instrument. When it comes to a breakdown of the numbers, older males are more likely to have a hearing loss (or a more severe hearing loss) than younger females. Moreover, Caucasians were more likely to have hearing losses than African-Americans (64% versus 43%). While the reason for this is not clear, it is thought that pigment produced by the skin and cells in the inner ear may protect the inner ear from free radicals. Hearing problems that are ignored or untreated can get worse. If you have a hearing problem, see your doctor. Hearing aids, special training, medicines and surgery are options. If you are experiencing problems with your ears or hearing, call ABSOLUTE HEARING SOLUTIONS today at 614-654-4309 to schedule a complementary hearing & speech evaluation.

Collins to take over Liberty program By PAUL BATTERSON ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Rick Collins will be tested in his first game as a head coach when the Olentangy Liberty High School boys soccer team opens the 2011 season Aug. 26 at Olentangy Orange, a Division I state semifinalist last year. But Collins, who was named Patriots coach last week, believes he received on-the-job training for the position during his four years as a forward at Mount Vernon Nazarene University and his nine years as an assistant coach, including last fall with Liberty. Collins was a three-year captain for MVNU and was named the Kyle Rote Jr. National Player of the Year in 2000.

The award is presented annually by the National Christian College Athletic Association. “As a captain, you’re like an extra set of eyes and ears for the coach,” Collins said. “That helped me get into the mindset of being a coach. It helped me to understand not to just worry about how am I playing but bringing everyone else along. “As a coach, you’re pushing the team forward. You’re coaching individuals, but collectively you’re trying to push everyone to a common goal.” Collins continues Liberty’s connection to MVNU. He replaces Josh Diehl, a former MNVU player who stepped down as Patriots coach to return to the school to be an assistant coach for the men’s soccer team.

Daniel Seiffert, a MVNU graduate and the 2006 Kyle Rote Jr. National Player of the Year, served as an assistant coach with the boys team at Liberty before returning to his alma mater to take over the women’s program. “(My team at MVNU was) kind of like a family,” Collins said. “There’s a very close bond and trust. That camaraderie is something I try to develop in every team I coach.” Diehl compiled a 53-28-11 record in five seasons with the Patriots. During his tenure, the Patriots advanced to a Division I district final three times, including last year when they lost to Thomas Worthington 2-1 to finish 87-5 overall. “The biggest thing I learned from Josh was how to be completely and

totally organized,” Collins said. “Josh was on top of everything. He was a great coach and a great tactician, but his organizational skills separated him from other coaches.” “Rick has a great knowledge of the game and cares about the kids,” Liberty athletics director Tom Gerhardt said. “He knows a lot of the kids since he was here last year and he seems to have a good idea about what it takes to make the program successful.” Liberty should have an experienced defense, as Brian Barthel, Cody Baum and Austin King, who will be seniors this fall, and junior Zach Matheny are expected to return as defenders and Rick Collins is taking over as Liberty See COLLINS, page C4

Local teams set for regional

Patriots hire Brenning as new coach By SCOTT HENNEN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

By AARON BLANKENSHIP ThisWeek Community Newspapers

A central Ohio club soccer team has won a Midwest Regional Cup title each of the past two summers after local squads failed to do so the previous six years. The Blast F.C. Under-15 boys team won a Regional Cup in 2009, and the Crew Juniors U19 boys squad won regional Team and national previews, championships pgs. C2-C3 last year. Heading into the 2011 Regional Cup tournament, which will be held Saturday through Wednesday, June 2529, in Fox Cities, Wis., Crew Juniors U-19 boys coach Brian Bliss said he wouldn’t be surprised if a central Ohio squad won a regional championship for the third consecutive season. However, Bliss said it will be difficult for the five local boys teams and four local girls squads to win their age brackets regardless of their talent level. “Sometimes it’s more difficult to win the Regional Cup than the national tournament because you have to play five games in five days in the regional tournament and there’s very little room for error,” Bliss said. “A lot of people have forgotten, but we were three minutes away from being eliminated from pool play in the regional tournament last year before we rallied (for a 3-1 win over Everest Soccer Club) to reach the semifinals. A lot of teams have the talent and potential to win this tournament, but you need to make plays at the right time to get it done.” More than 270 preliminary games will be played as boys and girls U.S. Youth Soccer State Cup champions, select wildcards and Midwest Regional League qualifiers in the U-13 through U-19 age groups compete. All of the age groups have been divided into three- or four-team brackets, and every team will play a game within its bracket June 25, 26 and 27. The bracket winners will move on to semifinals June 28, with regional finals played June 29. Regional champions in the U14 through U-19 age groups will advance to the U.S. Youth Soccer Association National Championships on July 27-31 in Phoenix. Ohio Premier Eagles club director Chris King said teams need to do more than play well to win a Regional Cup. They also need some luck. “You have to play well and find a way to win against great competition, but a lot of this comes down to luck,” said King, who helped guide the Ohio Premier U-13 girls team to a regional championship in 2002. “In the closer games, you may need to have a few bounces or a referee’s

New Liberty baseball coach Ty Brenning helps 8-year-old Drew Kern with his swing during a camp on June 15. This is the first head coaching job for Brenning.

Ty Brenning has worked at Olentangy Liberty High School for several years and views the community as his home away from home. That made it even better when he was named Patriots baseball coach on June 10. It will be the first head coaching position for Brenning, who was an assistant the past seven seasons under former coach Matt Lattig, who resigned June 3 so that he could spend more time with his family. Brenning, who teaches social studies at Liberty and also has served as an assistant coach with the Patriots football team, had been an assistant baseball coach at Olentangy and Franklin Heights before arriving at Liberty. “I made the comment to (athletics director) Tom Gerhardt and Matt that the Olentangy district and Liberty High School was such a neat place,” said Brenning, a native of Urbana. “I always said that if I ever wanted to be a head coach, it would be at Liberty. “I’m humbled to have an opportunity to have this kind of leadership role with the program. Some of my best friends

have been Matt and Zebb Schroeder and between the three of us we have been trying to build this program from the ground up. Now Matt has left and Zebb has gone to be the head football coach at Delaware.” Lattig had been Liberty’s only coach since the program’s first season in 2004, compiling a 134-77 record with the Patriots. “Ty is a new coach, but he has been here for seven seasons,” Gerhardt said. “He was Matt Lattig’s right-hand man and Ty was the perfect choice for the job, especially with summer ball coming around. He has a love for the kids and really does a great job working with them.” The Patriots won league titles in 2005 (OCC-Capital Division), 2009 (OCC-Cardinal) and 2010 (OCC-Cardinal) and won a Division II district championship in 2005. They were district runners-up in 2004 (Division III), 2009 (Division I) and 2010 (Division I). This spring, Liberty finished 8-16 overall and went 5-9 in the OCC-Cardinal, placing seventh behind champion Olentangy (12-2). See BRENNING, page C4


East all-stars hold on for win over West By SCOTT GERFEN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

To watch Grove City High School graduate Luke Smurthwaite scramble and make a play seemingly out of nothing, it looked like more was on the line than the outcome of an all-star football game. One of central Ohio’s top quarterbacks, Smurthwaite made sure his team didn’t lose without putting up a fight in the Cap City Senior Bowl on June 18 at Westerville Central. The Kent State recruit completed three of five passes for 36 yards during the West all-stars’ final drive, which ended at midfield with a fumble as time expired. A strong defensive effort led by Independence lineman Tim Dysart (Morehead State) helped the East all-stars win 14-7. “It was really great to just be playing football again and getting the rust out of my system before I head off to college,” said Smurthwaite, who was named the West’s Offensive Player of the Game. “I’ve grown up scrambling around like that and I guess that’s why I’ve gotten good at it.” Smurthwaite, who passed for more than 2,300 yards last fall and played in the Ohio North-South All-Star Classic in April, didn’t have big numbers, but his abilities gave the West a chance to come back. It was no surprise to West coach Derek Katris, who coached Smurthwaite on junior varsity at Grove City. “Luke’s going to give you everything See OVERVIEW, page C3

2011 Midwest Regional Cup

Team Ohio F.C.

Green U-17 boys eye Midwest title By AARON BLANKENSHIP ThisWeek Community Newspapers


The Team Ohio F.C. Green Under-17 boys soccer team surprised many, including coach Steve Dawson, by winning the State Cup tournament for the first time in four years. After beating the CUP Crew Juniors 3-2 in a semifinal on May 14, Team Ohio defeated the Blast F.C. 1-0 in the final on May 15 as forward Sam Darling scored and A.J. Tresoline earned the shutout in goal. The CUP Crew Juniors were the No. 1 seed in the tournament and the Blast F.C. won a Regional Cup title and finished fifth in the national tournament two years ago. Given its State Cup performance, Dawson said he wouldn’t be surprised if his team continued to earn upsets in the 2011 Midwest Regional Cup tournament, which will be held Saturday through Wednesday, June 25-29, in Fox Cities, Wis. “This team doesn’t have a lot of players who are big stars and I thought we’d be doing well to get to the semifinals in the State Cup,” Dawson said. “But we shocked CUP, which was stronger than us talent-wise, player for player, and we upset the Blast in the final against all odds, and our players have a lot of confidence right now. This team has come on like gangbusters at the right time and is on a roll. If we continue playing like this in the regional tournament, I think we can keep winning there.” This will be Team Ohio’s first Regional Cup appearance since going 1-1-1 in pool play as a U13 team in 2007. Team Ohio will open pool play June 25 against ShattuckSt. Mary’s from Minnesota before playing June 26 against Elm Grove (Wis.) Premier and June 27 against the Grand Rapids (Mich.) Crew Juniors. The Grand Rapids Crew Juniors are first in the U.S. Region 2 club soccer rankings ahead of Elm Grove Premier (10th) and Team Ohio (26th). “We feel like we have a great chance to do well, even though we may be the lowest-ranked team going there,” defender A.G. Basiakos said. “We’re not the most talented team, but we can win games if we play tough defensively and continue to outwork our opponents.” Dawson said Basiakos and Tresoline will need to lead his defense, while Darling is expected to spark his offense. Darling also scored two goals in Team Ohio’s State Cup semifinal win. “A.G. is our captain and strongest player in the back, and A.J. has been playing great in

felt could compete at the top level, and this team has lost only one game since December,” Dawson said. “It’s a strange team because we’ve had a lot of injuries and our practices haven’t been fantastic, but it keeps winning games.” In pool play, Team Ohio Blast will face CUP Crew Juniors from Cincinnati on June 25, the Michigan Wolves on June 26 and the KCFC Rangers from Kansas on June 27. In the U.S. Region 2 club soccer rankings, the KCFC Rangers are eighth, the Michigan Wolves are 15th and the CUP Crew Juniors are 35th. “We got an OK draw, but all of our pool play games are going to be tough,” Dawson said. “We’re a streaky team in that sometimes we score a lot and other times we win games 1-0. This team has some of the best high school players in the area and we haven’t been dominated by anyone, so I think we’ll be competitive in every game in this tournament.” •The Team Ohio F.C. Juventus U-16 boys team, which lost to the CUP Crew Juniors 3-1 in a State Cup final on May 15, received a wildcard to advance to the Regional Cup tournament for the third consecutive year. Team Ohio went 2-0-1 and won its pool in the Regional Cup two years ago, before losing to St. Louis SG Academy 2-0 in a semifinal. Last year in the Regional Cup, Team Ohio went 1-2 in pool play. “This team has been disjointed up to this point in the season, but we have a lot of talented players such as Tyler Kidwell, Rylee Woods, Alex Polko, Gunnar Bloecher and Alec Binger,” Dawson said. “This team underachieved this year, but we can win at regional if we play together like we have in the past. This is a chance to rectify not playing up to potential in the State Cup.” In pool play, Team Ohio will face the Lemont (Ill.) Raiders on June 25, WAZA West Black from Michigan on June 26 and KCFC United from Kansas on June 27. In the U.S. Region 2 club soccer rankings, Team Ohio is fifth behind the Lemont Raiders (No. 1) and ahead of WAZA West Black (14th) and KCFC United (21st). “Our experience (in past Regional Cup tournaments) should help because playing at a higher level gets you prepared for this kind of game speed,” goalkeeper Trent Rantala said. “The key for us is to keep possession and link passes to get an attack going.”

Ohio Premier

Eagles U-18 girls team emphasizing defense By AARON BLANKENSHIP ThisWeek Community Newspapers

As the Ohio Premier Eagles Under-18 girls soccer team conducted drills in its indoor facility June 17, coach Chris King halted practice three times to emphasize the importance of taking away passing lanes in the center of the field. Moments later, King was shouting words of praise and encouragement as his players clogged those seams and deflected the ball to the perimeter again and again. At the conclusion of practice, King said his team will need to continue playing defense with that same level of enthusiasm to be a true contender in the Midwest Regional Cup tournament, which will be held Saturday through Wednesday, June 25-29, in Fox Cities, Wis. “This is stuff that we’ve gone through hundreds of times at this stage of their careers, but doing the basic things right in a tournagoal,” Dawson said. “Sam’s one ment like this is what makes the of the fastest players in the state. difference,” King said. “All of the Overall, this is one of the least teams that we’ll see there will be highly skilled, but the teams that heralded teams on paper.

In 2009, Ohio Premier advanced to a Regional Cup final but lost to the Eclipse Select from Illinois 10 on penalty kicks. “This is a great team that is full of players who are highly sought after by college coaches,” King said. “Gabby Byorth has made the U-17 national team camp, and we have a lot of players who have done well at the regional level.” In pool play, the Ohio Premier Eagles will face the Kansas City (Kan.)

The Ohio Premier Eagles are third in the U.S. Region 2 club soccer rankings, ahead of the Michigan Football Club (sixth). “We’re as talented as any team in the country, but the girls need to bring a physical aspect to their game in this tournament or the other teams will try to bully them around,” King said. “We need to find that balance between playing a high-level quality of soccer and also standing up to the teams that are physical.

The Crew Juniors Under-19 boys soccer team played stifling defense en route to winning the Midwest Regional Cup and the U.S. Youth Soccer Association National Championships last year. The squad posted two shutouts and gave up five goals in five games in the regional tournament. In the national tournament, the Crew Juniors earned two shutouts and gave up three goals in four contests. The team now features a roster that coach Brian Bliss said likely will utilize a more offensive style of play in the 2011 Midwest Regional Cup, which will be held Saturday through Wednesday, June 25-29, in Fox Cities, Wis. “Last year’s team was probably a bet-

ter-defending group, but we’re stronger on the attack this year,” Bliss said. “That’s not to say that we’re going to leak a lot of goals, because our defending group isn’t poor. I’m just saying we have more creativity and speed on the attacking end of the field, so we won’t have to rely on our defense as much as we did last year. We have the firepower to come from behind to win games if we need to, so we have the option of being more aggressive.” The Crew Juniors feature two members of the U.S. U-20 National Team in forward Dylan Mares and defender Eriq Zavaleta, along with two members of the U.S. U-18 National Team in forward Chris Hegngi and midfielder A.J. Corrado. Five players who competed in the 2010 NCAA Division I championship game, in which Akron defeated Louisville 1-0, also play for the Crew Juniors, including

Akron goalkeeper Andrian McAdams and Akron midfielder Kyle Culbertson. Mares and midfielders Andrew Farrell and Alex Obbey competed for Louisville. The Crew Juniors went 3-0 in the State Cup tournament and outscored their opponents 11-0, including a 2-0 win over the Blast F.C. in the final on June 5. “This team is equal to, if not slightly better than, last year’s U-19 team,” Bliss said. “But we’ll need to play well and there’s always an element of luck involved in winning any championship. Hopefully, we’ll play well enough to make our own luck, like we did last year.” The Crew Juniors will open pool play June 25 against St. Croix from Minnesota before playing June 26 against the Chicago Fire Juniors and June 27 against the Des Moines (Iowa) Menace. Last year in the Regional Cup, the Crew

Juniors 4-2 on penalty kicks. Nick Teutsch, Tyler Stills, Cameron Campbell and Will Bolton scored and goalkeeper J.P. Baughman made a save to secure the victory. “I’m of the opinion that defense wins championships, and we did a great job of defending in the State Cup tournament,” Lentz said. “We don’t just bunker it in, though. We have kids who can play and score goals, but we’re very organized on the field and we’re able to fight and grind out wins when we need to.” The Classics Eagles will open Midwest Regional Cup pool play on June 25 against the Wichita (Kan.) Lightning before playing June 26 against Vardar from Michigan and June 27 against Cleveland Pacesetter. In the U.S. Region 2 club soccer rankings, the Classics Eagles are 18th and Vardar is fifth. In the State Cup tournament, the Classics Eagles upset the Crew Juniors 2-0 in pool play on May 15 before beating the

Crew Juniors again in the final. Teutsch scored winning goals in the Classics Eagles’ 4-0 win over Hammer F.C. Premier on May 8, their first victory over the Crew Juniors and their 1-0 win over the Ohio Premier Eagles in a semifinal on May 21. The Crew Juniors are fourth in the U.S. Region 2 club soccer rankings. “Because we’re a new club and not a household name, we may be considered an underdog, but we beat a very good Crew Juniors team twice to get this far, so I’m confident we can compete at this level,” Lentz said. “Vardar is one of the best teams in our region, so we’ll need to play great defense and find a way to score enough goals to win. Our goalie and two center backs, Mark Just and Will Bolton, have played together since they were 9 years old, and we’ve got some technically gifted midfielders and forwards.”

long way.” •The Ohio Premier Eagles U19 girls team earned its second consecutive State Cup title on June 5 when it beat CUP 1-0 in the final. Last year in the Regional Cup tournament, the Ohio Premier Eagles went 1-2 in pool play and failed to reach a semifinal. “Most of these girls have played together for seven years, and when they returned home from college, you would never know they’ve been apart for a year because they play so well together,” coach Matt Ogden said. “They already know our system and their chemistry is still great. They know each other inside-out, and that gives us an advantage over a lot of U-19 teams that have been put together with players who are still getting to know each other.” The Ohio Premier Eagles will open pool play on June 25 against Dynamo F.C. from Indiana before playing Eclipse Select from Illinois on June 26 and Bloomfield Force from Michigan on June 27. Eclipse Select is first in the U.S. Region 2 club soccer rankings, ahead of Dynamo F.C. (15th) and the Ohio Premier Eagles (17th). “Our draw looks very difficult because Illinois, Michigan and Indiana are all very competitive states,” Ogden said. “But at U-19, you never know who will return to play for their teams. With who we have back we’re confident we can play with anyone in the country. We’re going to play a 4-3-3. ... We use an attacking style that sometimes leaves us vulnerable in the back, but we’ve done well with it.” •The Ohio Premier Eagles U13 girls team qualified for the Regional Cup by winning its second consecutive State Cup title. It went 5-0 in the State Cup tournament, outscoring its opponents 16-1. In a State Cup final on May 22, the Ohio Premier Eagles beat Hammer F.C.

United S.C. Elite on June 25, Greater Toledo F.C. on June 26 and Centennial from Minnesota on June 27. In the U.S. Region 2 club soccer rankings, the Ohio Premier Eagles are third ahead of Carmel United S.C. Elite (10th). “Our draw could have been much worse,” Dougherty said. “I’d like to see us continue to play defense the way we did in the State Cup when we gave up only one goal in five games, because we’re dangerous when we defend that well.”

GCSTO looking for new swimmers The Greater Columbus Swim Team of Ohio (GCSTO) is looking for new athletes. New swimmers are allowed a week with the team to see what it has to offer before deciding to commit. The team practices at Columbus Academy, the Concourse Hotel Fitness Club and St. Charles Preparatory School, and the Gahanna swimming pool during the summer. The team also has started a scholarship pro-

U-17 boys. “Any of us have a chance to win it,” Team Ohio F.C. club director Steve Dawson said. “If you have good coaching and have kids who stick together and play well together, you can compete at the regional level.”

call go your way. “The luck of the draw is another big factor because teams aren’t seeded at regional and there have been a lot of years where the top two or three teams in the regional end up in the same bracket of pool play, and some of the better teams get eliminated early on.” Local teams that won State Cup championships to advance to the Regional Cup are: the Classics Eagles U-13 boys, Team Ohio F.C. U-17 boys, Team Ohio F.C. U-18 boys, Crew Juniors U-19 boys, Ohio Premier Eagles U-13 girls, Ohio Premier Eagles U-16 girls and Ohio Premier Eagles U-19 girls.

It’s very difficult to win this tournament because you play five games in five days. There’s a small margin for error in this tournament. Last year we (were) three minutes away from being eliminated from group play before going on to win the regional and national tournaments.”

Liberty’s Josh Richardson (left) and Olentangy’s William Greathouse (right) were among the local players competing for the West squad in the Cap City Senior Bowl on June 18.

CAP CITY Continued from page C1 down pass from Beechcroft quarterback Sheldon Akin (Mesabi Range Community & Technical College) with 1 minute, 36 seconds left in the first half to give the East a 14-0 lead. The East also scored on its opening drive. Westerville South’s Jayshon Jackson (Grand Rapids Community College), the district’s Division I Offensive Player of the Year, capped the drive with a 2-yard touchdown run. “We really executed our offense in the first half, but I think we got a little bit too conser-

vative in the second half,” said East coach Jeff Pharion, who is the head coach at St. Charles. “We kept it simple with schemes and blitzes defensively, and we executed very well.” The West only crossed midfield twice in the first half. Whetstone running back Jordan Mitchell (Urbana) made it 14-7 when he reversed field and scored on an 18-yard run with 11:35 left in the fourth quarter. The Cap City game began as the City League All-Star game in 2008, but Anthony Murphy, one of the organizers in conjunction with, wanted to get players through-

out central Ohio involved. Players from the City, Central Catholic and Mid-State leagues and the OCC were added, with Interstate 71 as a dividing line. The name of the game was changed last summer, when the East beat the West 22-0. “Last year we had kids from Olentangy Orange becoming friends with kids who live on (Columbus’) west side in the ‘Bottoms’ and picking them up for practice,” Murphy said. “The guys really build relationships out of this and it goes deeper than football.”

BRENNING letics and school teams are great connections to the community and I think you have to earn the right to wear the Liberty uniform and represent Powell and the community. We want to put young men on the field to make our community proud and we want our players to be outstanding citizens and students as well as being good baseball players.”

“In many ways, some of the things we will do will be new and maybe the direction will be slightly different, but the substance will be the same,” Brenning said. “My challenge is to uphold what Matt has created and continue that over the next several years of the program. “I think that playing baseball at Liberty is a privilege and even though we are a high school program, we take what we do seriously.

Offensively, senior Evan Cupp, juniors Kyle Baum (4 goals, 2 assists) and Jared Robinson and sophomore Aidan Bean should be back as forwards and seniors Brian Anichowski and Alex Ranalli (4 goals, 2 assists), junior Sam DeRoy and sophomore Thomas Gullo should return as midfielders. “I’m looking forward to getting to know the boys on another level,” Collins said. “As a head coach, I get to set the tone for the program and put my

It’s a matter of meshing the team together.” Collins wants Liberty to have a more aggressive offensive attack than it had last season, when the Patriots averaged 2.1 goals a game while allowing 1.4 goals a game. “We’re still going to be a very disciplined team,” Collins said. “But we’re going to be a little more attack-minded. I was a forward when I played, so I like to attack.”

Great! I just told him about their huge sale and told him to leave his wallet at home :-)

Cool! That’s the same advice you gave me, Bob--That’s why I left my purse at home! Do you know what he is looking for?

He told me they better “sharpen their pencils,� because he wants a brand-new Chrysler 300 or Dodge Charger!

Well...they were so easy to deal with that I’m sure he will get the deal he wants. Can’t wait to see his new car!
