Bats delay roundabout construction By BONNIE BUTCHER ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Delaware County engineer’s office is delaying until 2012 the construction of a roundabout at state Route 315 and Orange and Carriage roads. The project was slated for completion this year, until environmental studies showed the project area contains trees

favored by the Indiana bat, which is classified as endangered by the federal government. “Environmental restrictions prohibit cutting trees on this project between April and September,” said Rob Riley, chief deputy engineer. “It’s necessary to cut the trees before doing any roadwork.” An Ohio Department of Natural Resources website says, “During the sum-

mer, female (Indiana bats) form maternity colonies, almost always under the loose bark of trees or in tree cavities.” “With construction anticipated to take about two months, it would be problematic to finish construction in the winter, due to not being able to place asphalt pavement in cold weather,” Riley said. “Utilities will do work this fall and next spring to clear the way for road con-

struction next summer.” The schedule was revised a few weeks ago. “We are working on a mitigation agreement with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources to mitigate impacts to this area. ODNR Scenic Rivers has authority to review and comment on impacts within 1,000 feet of scenic rivers. We expect that to be finalized in the next

few months. Once that is done, we anticipate ODOT approval shortly thereafter,” Riley said of what remains of the approval process. The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency also is part of that process, he said. The road improvement is proposed to See BATS DELAY, page A2

Kiwanis project helps parents learn how to use child seats By BONNIE BUTCHER ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Area Kiwanis clubs have raised funds to help keep children safe while riding in cars. The Kiwanis Club of Powell, the Delaware County Kiwanis Noon Club and the Delaware Kiwanis Evening Club each donated $200 to the Friends for Life Fund of the Delaware General Health District, said Jesse Carter, DGHD spokesperson. Club members also requested and received a $1,000 grant from the Ohio District Kiwanis Foundation for the fund. Those donations paid for a set of six life-size dolls used to demonstrate proper car- and booster- seat installation and the proper way for a child to sit in those seats, Carter said. One doll is the size of a premature infant. Heights of the others are 13, 17, 38, 48 and 57 inches. Carter said they are “weighted and articulated to resemble a child that size.” The dolls have a lot of advantages over using the actual children for these demonstrations.

“The children aren’t always in a frame of mind where they want to be cooperative,” said Carter. “The dolls are another tool to make sure that children are riding safely. The more tools like that we have, the better job we can do overall in reducing accidents and injuries.” The health district holds car-seat safety checks throughout the county, during which Kiwanis members frequently volunteer. “Our motto is ‘Serving the Children of the World,’” said Joe Dum-

baugh, president of the Delaware Kiwanis Noon Club, “so getting involved with the Delaware General Health District’s car-seat safety checks was a perfect fit for Kiwanis and our mission of serving children.” The clubs also donated “Children Have an Identity” stickers — called “CHAD” — to place on the bottoms or backs of the car seats, said Judy Lamp, president of the Delaware Kiwanis Evening Club. “The ID stickers go on an infant

car seat or booster seat. They are placed in the back or underneath, so are not seen from the window, and they give pertinent information about the child in the event that the adults in the car are not able to speak on behalf of the child,” Lamp said. “Heaven forbid there’s an accident and no one in the vehicle is able to communicate with responders,” Carter said. “When they pull that car seat out, there is a sticker identifying the child and who the emergency contacts are, where they live and contact numbers. When we do a seat check, we will offer these stickers to parents. It’s another layer of safety.” Prevention of pediatric trauma is one of the objectives of the Ohio District Kiwanis, said Lynn Hanna Stoycheff, president of the Kiwanis Club of Powell. “We started doing the CHAD stickers, car seat inspections and we bought the training dolls so they could try to reach more people,” Stoycheff said. “The dolls also help if there’s (a language barrier). They help inspectors show the person how

Powell City Council hopes to help residents of Golf Village save some money by refinancing $9.6 million of bonds. The debt belongs to the Liberty Community Infrastructure Financing Authority (LCIFA), city officials said. The LCIFA was created as part of a 2002 preannexation agreement with developer Triangle Properties Inc. As a result, the city annexed close to 1,000 acres of the mixed-use development. Under the LCIFA’s terms, property owners in the LCIFA area pay 10.25 mills of property assessment to service the authority’s debt.

City officials have said no city dollars have gone toward the LCIFA debt, but city staff time has been used in managing it. The city lent the LCIFA its bonding authority and issued $10.9 million in general obligation bonds as part of the pre-annexation agreement with Triangle Properties. City manager Steve Lutz said that favorable interest rates have the city looking at refinancing the debt. “If we save $40,000 a year on these bonds, you carry that out to 2032 (the retirement date) and there would be a savings of $800,000,” he said. The savings stay with the LCIFA, not the city, city finance director Debra Miller said. The LCIFA could use that savings to pay its other debts or expenses, Miller said. The LCIFA is responsible for about $32 million of debt, including that which the city holds. As part of the refinancing, the city might move some of the debt from general obligation bonds to


Teacher’s hat wins spot in Kentucky Derby Museum By BONNIE BUTCHER ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Village Academy teacher Gena Fausel is one of this year’s Kentucky Derby Museum hat contest winners. Fausel, of Westerville, learned in June that the hat she created and wore to the private school’s spring fundraiser will be on display until June 2012 at the museum at 704

Central Ave., Louisville. In May, shortly after wearing the hat to the Village Academy’s Big Bash fundraiser, which had a Kentucky Derby theme, she learned about the contest and entered. “I’m on an email list for the Derby museum, and they put out a call for hat entries, and I thought, “Why not?’” Fausel said. The annual contest has run since

2000, said Lynn Ashton, executive director of the museum. “We renovated the museum, and hats are so much a part of Derby, and have always been, that we just decided how much fun it would be to have a contest every year,” Ashton said. “The hats are juried and approximately 20 are selected for display. It’s a lot of fun and every year we have hats come in on an in-

ternational level. They come from all over.” This year, the museum received about 60 entries, Ashton said. “We try to showcase all different kinds of hats that you would see at Derby. Some are homemade. Some are designer. Some are funky, with a horse’s head sticking out. So, it reSee TEACHER’S HAT, page A3

Bats delay Orange Road roundabout construction Continued from page A1 be a single-lane roundabout, with a single entry on each approach and one lane for circulating traffic, Riley said. “There will be a concrete apron in the center island to allow the larger trucks to get through,” he said. “It’s a state route, so we have to accommodate trucks. It will have landscaping, shrubs and small ornamental trees in the center.” The office also will plant larger trees, filling in some of the areas outside the roundabout where trees aren’t yet planted. They’ll construct curb ramps for future sidewalks. Next year, when the roundabout is being constructed, Orange and Carriage roads will be closed near the project site, Riley said.

“(State route) 315 traffic will be maintained, except for about a week, when we’ll be doing work that you can’t do under traffic,” he said. The roundabout it is estimated to cost $750,000 for construction and engineering. An additional $285,861 was spent to buy right of way. The roundabout was part of the original plan for the intersection when a new $2.7-million Orange Road bridge was built in August 2009. County engineer Chris Bauserman has said studies show roundabout intersections have dramatically fewer accidents compared to intersections with traffic signals or stop signs. He also said roundabouts require less maintenance. Riley said the office is looking forward to completing the project, which began being discussed in 2006.

It currently has about $17.7 million, including the LCIFA debt and about $2.2 million of debt for building its police facility at 47 Hall St. When bonds are approved by voters, the debt is paid by dedicated property-tax revenue. Nonvoted debt, such as that used to build the police facility, is paid from the general fund. Revenue bonds issued by the city would not count against its nonvoted debt limit, Miller said. Council members Brian Lorenz and Sara Marie Brenner, who both live in the LCIFA area, asked if

the resale would decrease the annual assessment on the properties. Sprague said that would not occur any time soon because the revenue coming into the LCIFA is not enough to service all its debt. Lutz said that once the LCIFA assessment generates about 125 percent of what’s required to service the debt, then the LCIFA board could choose to reduce the millage. The reissuing will occur only if it is financially beneficial to the LCIFA, said Miller.

County commissioners extend mental health transport agreement By SARAH SOLE ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Delaware County has extended an agreement to provide secure transportation of patients for mental health hospital care. County commissioners on June 27 approved a mental health emergency security and transport service agreement extension among the commissioners, the county sheriff, Grady Memorial Hospital and the Delaware-Morrow Mental Health and Recovery Services Board. The agreement is in effect from July 1 through June 30, 2012. The agreement allows special-duty sheriff’s deputies to transport patients suffering mental health emergencies from Grady to other hospitals with mental health care. It also provides additional security for a patient at Grady exhibiting risky behavior. Since Grady has no inpatient psychiatric ward, patients can only be admitted to the emergency room and transferred out, said

recovery services executive director Steve Hodge. Though Grady has its own security service, it doesn’t leave the hospital. All deputies who participate in the agreement take intervention team training to learn how to deal with psychiatric emergencies. Deputies are paid $34 per hour. DelawareMorrow Mental Health and Recovery Services Board pays the fee. Hodge said the service has been used 46 times during the past seven months. Commissioners also approved an agreement with developer Margello Development Co. regarding roads planned in Estates of River Run in Liberty Township. Because the Estates is a private development, the streets would remain private and Margello would assume the project cost. Commissioner Ken O’Brien voted against the agreement, saying he wanted the Delaware County Regional Planning Commission to have a chance to review the project before

it was implemented. O’Brien asked county engineer Chris Bauserman if the RPC had signed off on the project. Bauserman said it hadn’t, since the roads aren’t yet developed. O’Brien also said he didn’t understand why the project was before the commissioners because it’s a private road. Bauserman said the commissioners must approve the recording of the plat, according to the Ohio Revised Code. The recording won’t take place until the streets are completed. The RPC also must approve the plat recording. Commissioners also approved a memorandum of understanding between the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services and Delaware, Hancock, Knox, Marion, Morrow, Sandusky and Wood county boards of commissioners and their respective county departments of jobs and family services for the Collabor8 Pilot Project, a virtual call center project.

Teacher’s hat wins spot in Kentucky Debry Museum Continued from page A1 ally runs the gamut,” she said. Fausel describes her hat as “traditional and sophisticated.” It’s a “classy black hat designed with bursts of silver, (black) and white ribbon,” said Carrie Leach, Village Academy spokesperson, in a press release. Fausel, a native of Lexington, Ky., said when the fundraiser theme of “The Kentucky Derby” was announced, she knew she should wear a hat. “The Derby and hats go hand in hand,” she said. “So, I purchased a hat and cut it apart and reattached it, finished the edges and added all the things to it.” “Hats have been a part of the Derby since its very beginning,” Ashton said. “In 1875, the Derby was started by Meriwether Lewis Clark Jr., (grandson of William Clark of the Lewis and Clark expedition.) He had gone to England and saw the grandeur of racing. He wanted to make that happen here. And he knew full well that if he wanted to get the men to come to the races, he had to get the women, too, and he had to make it special. “In the beginning, the infield of the Derby was more in line with what we think of Millionaires Row today. People would come out, bring their wagons, and the ladies would have on their finery and their hats and everyone would dress up and picnic in the infield,” Ashton said. Fausel has created fashion from an early age. “I’ve always sewn since I was a little girl. It’s a great way to have a hobby and the process of doing some of these things is fun and relaxing,” she said.

Baker’s Village Garden Center – for the finest in gardening & gifts –

Teacher Gena Fausel wears her hat, that is now in the Kentucky Derby Museum, at Village Academy’s Big Bash fundraiser with her husband, John.

For about seven years, Fausel has taught consumer science and art at the Village Academy. “My area of expertise is textile and clothing,” Fausel said. “I teach fashion design, sewing, all kinds of handwork, needlework, needlepoint and I teach in the art department, mostly middle and upper school students, though next year I’ll also teach (preschool) and kindergarten.” She’s made hats before, but has limited time for working on her art, with her priorities being those of a teacher and a mom. She chose the field of consumer science while at the University of Kentucky because she wanted to work in a big department store as a buyer. The winning hats can be viewed on the Ashton said this year’s contest winners will be posted on the website in the coming month.

District’s kindergarten decision criticized To the editor: I want to report that since the Olentangy school district levy passed, the district has been busy spending your tax dollars. I listened to the school board and board president Julie WagnerFeasel complain over the last three years at almost every meeting about how was the district going to fund the all-day kindergarten (ADK) mandate by then-Gov. Ted Strickland, because the district had no money to implement the program. So instead of thanking Gov. John Kasich for quashing the mandate last October because school districts could not fund it, the district is going ahead with ADK next year now that it has a newfound piggy bank full of cash. Why wouldn’t the district want to save almost a million dollars by not spending tax money on a program that is not necessary at

this time? Not every kindergartner is eligible for the program as it is a test-score based program, so all taxpaying kindergarten parents will not benefit from the discount in daycare that ADK can provide. Other local school districts charge parents for the ADK option, but not Olentangy. Superintendent Wade Lucas has said that they will use the new elementary school for the preschool and ADK students because there are not enough the district students to fill the new school. Basically, the school was built too early and now the district needs to scramble to fill it to show you that they are spending your tax money wisely. Why not keep the new school closed for one year, saving millions? No one in the district knows what saving for the future means. Olentangy treasurer Becky Jenkins’comment at the May 25 board meeting was that

the the district will “not realize the entire $7.8 million that the levy is supposed to bring in” related to home foreclosure and tax defaults. You know what that means? Look for a levy in two years. The district taxpayers need to wake up unless they like having their hard-earned dollars mismanaged. They need to take a lesson from Hilliard taxpayers; they said no to their levy and the unions finally gave up their future raises to where the middle school kids get to keep their sports. The Worthington teachers’ union agreed to a total wage freeze and a 0.5-percent merit based raise in 2 years, as well as concessions in health care premiums. These are actions of goodwill. Will Olentangy do the same?

Choices matter most when you want to make a point Somehow, my husband and I and both of our daughters and sons-in-law all celebrate wedding anniversaries in June. I know, how conventional of us. If I were pushed to explain three June, weddings – that’s June as in croon, tune, honeymoon – I could only shake my head helplessly. In fact, I’m shaking my head right now, just thinking about it. A June wedding! I was a disgrace to my generation, which was of course the generation of Woodstock, though I didn’t go there, and San Francisco’s Summer of Love, though I didn’t go there either, and the Broadway musical “Hair,” that told our story, at least as accurately as the musical “Oklahoma!” told the story of the Oklahoma territory. In fact, my husband and I did see “Hair;” we saw it in London in the early 1970s and we were astonished to find ourselves stung by the anti-American sentiment both on the stage and in the audience. The unpopular Vietnam War was ongoing, of course; we didn’t like it ourselves but hadn’t expected to experience a surge of patriotism while on foreign soil. But there it was: We left the theater and went back to our bed and breakfast, not quite outraged but not entirely happy either. Had we seen “Hair” in New York City, where the reaction of our fellow Americans wouldn’t have troubled us, would that have made choosing a moon-tune-June wedding seem like selling out? Or would we have run out of patience with the countercultural movement and all its strictures – which were as regulated in their way as the so-called establishment was in its? At any rate, when we suddenly decided to get married it happened to be June, and it was still June when we walked to Columbus’ Schiller Park, accompanied by half a dozen friends and a Unitarian minister. Besides, it wasn’t a wedding. It was one elderly clergyman away from a civil ceremony. As for our daughters, well, it hardly matters when weddings are anymore. It was only in the

1960s and ‘70s that flouting convention seemed important enough to work at, at least for a while. ConMARGO vention deBARTLETT creed that people marry in their early 20s? Well, then, we wouldn’t. Convention decreed a church wedding, preceded by showers and followed by trips that involved flying to someplace with a beach? We walked to the park and then went camping. Convention decreed an exchange of rings, preferably with an engagement ring to start the ball rolling? We never so much as discussed the ring question; rings never came up until months – possibly years – after our wedding. In fact, it might have been our daughters who, once born, grew up, learned to speak, noticed our ringless hands and inquired about them. Had anyone asked me back in those days of convention-flouting why I was spurning, say, a more traditional wedding in favor of a casual three-minute ceremony in a crowded public park, I’m pretty sure I would have claimed to be setting a precedent for all

posterity, but especially for my own. “I want to be a role model,” I’d have said. “I want to set an example for any daughters I might have, that you don’t have to do what society expects you to do.” Oh, yeah? It’s true that both daughters were married in the grass of our own front yard, one of them by a Unitarian minister, but there all comparisons end. The ceremony my older daughter and her husband worked out with the assistance of said minister was among the most affecting, emotional and meaningful wedding services I’ve ever heard. My younger daughter was married by her father-in-law, an Episcopal pastor, in another ceremony noteworthy for its genuine emotion, not just on the parts of the principal players but on those of half a dozen others as well. Frankly, we all were wrecks. On the whole, after 35 years, I think my husband and I did the right thing at the right time in the right way for us. As for our daughters, when it came their turn to choose, they made their own choices. Who needed role models? Not those girls. Margo Bartlett can be reached at

History today

Farming was way of life in Hyatts with towels. His father cured their meat and stored bacon, hams, and liver pudding in their smokeCAROLE house. Every part of the hog WILHELM was used. Of course, the farm included cattle and chickens and a vegetable garden to feed their family. Let’s look at parts of the life “Pooch” and Marian shared that generally don’t exist any longer. To begin with, they met at a box social at school, probably sponsored by the 4-H. Marian said any kind of box was fine, but often it was a candy box, which you filled with fried chicken, some strawberries, and cookies or cake. The young men bid on the boxes for a quarter or 50 cents, and then ate with whomever brought the box. Their honeymoon was an overnight stay in Dayton because “Pooch” had to get home to milk the cows and do the chores. In the interview, Marian said, in her inimitable way, “Well, heck, every day was a honeymoon forever.” But there was a lot of work on the farm, and they had hired hands or “chore boys” over the years who received room and board and $12 a month. At threshing time, the women in the community

gathered at the various farms to help the woman of that farm prepare a huge meal for all the workers. The favorite meat was a roast of beef weighing 20 or 25 pounds. Among the bounty was lots of potatoes and pies, and gallons of lemonade. They had no refrigerator as we know it; only ice boxes. Marian laughed when she recalled the mess that needed to be mopped up if you didn’t have the pan under the hole just right to collect the 15 to 25 pounds of ice as it melted. And she laughed again as she described making “ice cream by the freezerfulls” because there was always plenty of cream, milk and eggs. That ice cream was turned by hand, of course. You could see these were happy memories even with the work involved. “Pooch” recalled earlier times, too — doing chores by lantern in the barn, riding to Delaware in a horse and buggy, and later, crowding 10 or 15 friends into his old Oldsmobile to go swimming at Dennison Dam on the Olentangy River, on state Route 315 just below U.S. Route 23. Marian continues to live in the Curmode “home place” on Hyatts Road, with her son next door. Carole Wilhelm is a member of the Powell Liberty Historical Society.

Most area residents know the community of Hyatts sits on Liberty Road between Powell and Delaware. Recent trips to Thorsen’s Greenhouse have provided me with the opportunity to enjoy the route I used to take in the 1980s and ’90s across Hyatts Road when our son attended Olentangy schools on Shanahan Road. They were the solitary elementary and middle schools in the district when he attended. Things have changed significantly in a fairly short period of time. I was familiar with the roundabout at Hyatts Road and Sawmill Parkway, but each time I approach it, it still seems strange, surrounded mostly by fields. Taking a different route last week, I discovered the new portion of Liberty Road above Home Road, and I could not miss the new railroad overpass. Traveling paths I no longer frequent certainly emphasizes the development I know exists here in Liberty Township. What would Robert “Pooch” Curmode think of all of this? He was born in 1918 and was a lifelong resident of Hyatts before his death in 2007. A dozen years ago, he and his wife, Marian, were interviewed by volunteers from the Powell Liberty Historical Society. They shared memories of their past. “Pooch” related the story of his grandfather, George, who ran away from his Delphos, Ohio, home and arrived in Hyatts as a 12-year-old. He had the good fortune to be taken in by Mrs. Hyatt, a “prominent person in Hyatts.” Her husband, Henry A. Hyatt, platted the town in 1876. It is possible Mrs. Hyatt saw the terrible infection in one of the boy’s hands, on which only two fingers remained. Perhaps the accident occurred while he was riding the train or during a job he may have taken. The young man worked for her until he was 21, at which time she gave him a considerable amount of land. It was all woods, which he cleared to establish a farm on Hyatts Road. That would have been in the late 1800s, and the farm remains in the family today. Curmode’s parents, Joseph Pearl and Florence Jackson, had six children. “Pooch” remembers his mother making sausage and storing it in 15-gallon crocks covered

Eagles U-16 defense falters in Regional Cup final By AARON BLANKENSHIP ThisWeek Community Newspapers

With defenders Gabby Byorth, Makenzie Costner, Nicole Hopkins and Haley Lehmkuhl and goalkeeper Anna Rosa James-Buhigas leading the way, the Ohio Premier Eagles Under16 girls soccer team had shutouts in each of its first four Midwest Regional Cup games in Fox Cities, Wis. The defense wasn’t as strong in the final, when the Eagles allowed two goals in the first 12 minutes and lost to the Michigan Hawks 2-0 on June 29.

“We hadn’t given up a goal the entire tournament, so we were in shock when we gave up two so quickly,” coach Chris King said. “We conceded a soft goal off a corner kick seven minutes into the game and the kids were a bit taken aback by that. Five minutes later, one of their players took a bad touch on the ball, ran into one of our defenders and went down, and the ref bit on it and gave her a penalty kick, which they scored on.” The Eagles switched from a twoforward to a three-forward formation

in the second half, but the Hawks goalkeeper made saves on shots by Bailey Wilson, Emily Byorth and Lindsay Agnew. King said that his team’s 1-0 win over Eclipse Select of Illinois on penalty kicks in its final pool-play game on June 27 and its 4-0 victory over KCFC Force of Kansas in a semifinal on June 28 drained his players of much-needed energy heading into the final. “We had a tougher path to reach the final than the Hawks had and we just didn’t have enough left in the tank to

come back and beat them after we fell behind 2-0,” King said. “We pressed every ball in the second half and we had some good chances, but we couldn’t finish them. We had to beat two of the best teams in the nation the past two days just to make it here, and the Hawks weren’t really tested until they played us.” In the semifinal, the Eagles beat KCFC Force to avenge a 3-2 loss to the same team in a Regional Cup poolplay game a year ago. “They manhandled us on the field to knock us out of the tournament last

year, but we turned the tables on them and shocked them with how physical we were,” King said. Five minutes into the game, Hopkins stopped the ball from going over the Eagles’ goal line and cleared it to midfield. Playing into a strong wind, the Eagles battled to a scoreless tie at halftime. They then dominated the second half with the wind at their backs. Agnew scored three consecutive goals and Elise Jones scored with three See SOCCER, page B4

Strong mindset key for athletes

Senior year has Simmons refocused

Ask any athlete, at any level, about the importance of the mental side of sports and he or she will say that believing in oneself is critical to success. This week, the central Ohio high school student-athletes in my summer series talk about how self-conLARRY fidence imLARSON pacts their performance. Morgan Ransom, Columbus Academy, golf: “Confidence is one of the most vital things to have when playing a sport. If you don’t believe in yourself then you will never reach your full potential.” Jake Blankenship, Gahanna, pole vault: “If you don’t believe in yourself, your body will do what your mind thinks, so you won’t progress. Just like my coach says, ‘Your body is stupid and it is up to your mind.’” Faith Washington, Reynoldsburg, track: “I was told, ‘If you think you’ll lose, you’ve lost,’ and it seems to be that every time I thought that way, it happened.” Mary Wells, Westerville Central, bowling: “You absolutely have to be confident in yourself and in your ability to perform under pressure.” Michela Paradiso, Upper Arlington, soccer and basketball: “I think it is important to believe in yourself and have confidence, but never be cocky and arrogant. Teammates are the most important part in sports and without each and every teammate I would have never achieved anything.” Jimmy Gammill, New Albany, football: “If you don’t think you can do it, you won’t be able to do it. If you don’t believe in your abilities, nobody else will either. You shouldn’t rely on others to build that confidence. It has to be you believing in yourself.” Napoleon Bell, Hartley football and wrestling: “One can only perform to their own expectations. If they expect highly of themselves and know they can perform highly then they will perform highly.” Austin Cuervo, St. Charles, golf: “Self-confidence gives me comfort and makes me achieve what I want to achieve. I believe in what I do and know I can do it, which is why I trust my game and just go out and compete.” Chase Delande, Hilliard Davidson, football and wrestling: “Self-confidence is huge when it is time to perform. If you don’t have any self-confidence then you’re out of luck and you are going to have a lot of trouble trying to do what you want to do.” Next week, the student-athletes will tell you about the qualities they like best in a coach. I’ll see you at a game. Larry Larson is a former athletics director at Grandview High School. He can be heard as “Mr. High School Sports” on WTVN 610 AM.

Olentangy High School graduate Brittney Simmons will compete in the high jump next season for the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.

When she competes for the University of North Carolina at Charlotte women’s track and field team next spring, Olentangy High School graduate Brittney Simmons wants to have her mind focused on the high jump and nothing else. She knows what happens when she loses focus. As a junior, Simmons won a Division I district title in the high jump by clearing a careerbest 5 feet, 4 inches. She also won the regional championship (5-2) and placed ninth at the state meet (5-4) that year. As a senior this spring, Simmons tied for second (5-2) at district but only cleared 4-10 at regional to tie for seventh. Only the top four finishers in each regional event advanced to state. If she had matched her career best, she would have won the regional title and possibly finished as high as sixth at state. “I put too much pressure on myself this year and I cracked under that pressure,” Simmons said. “Last year when I made it to the state meet, I felt so clear-minded. This year, I had so much on my mind. It’s something that I’m going to learn from. I’m going to focus on track before I jump and not anything else.” Simmons has signed with UNC Charlotte, which won the Atlantic 10 Conference championship this spring. She chose the 49ers over Ohio State,

Miami University, Cincinnati and North Carolina State. “I wanted to find a school that fit me athletically as well as academically,” she said. “UNC Charlotte seemed to fit perfectly. They have a lot of girls who were jumping around 5-4 and 5-6. I felt like it was a place where I could fit in and yet still be challenged.” Simmons likes to be challenged. After losing interest in soccer in seventh grade, she was persuaded by former Olentangy girls track coach Dwight Dewese to give track a try. “I could see she had the potential to be a good high jumper,” said Dewese, who coached Simmons at Shanahan Middle School as well as her freshman and sophomore seasons. “Brittney is never satisfied with the status quo. She’s always been very driven and a hard worker. She’s always going to get better.” Simmons said the high jump can be an unforgiving event. “If you even touch the bar a little bit, it’s coming down,” she said. “You have to be very self aware of your body at all time. You have to worry about your arch and driving with your knees to make sure you get maximum height over the bar.” Simmons, who also was the OCC-Cardinal Division champion this spring in the 100-meter hurdles (15.94 seconds), said she is drawn to events that rely on technique. “I have to have everything See SIMMONS, page B4

Top Individual Performances: Nos. 6-10

Area athletes’ dominance remembered From staff reports Whether they set a state record, put together a stellar performance or accomplished a feat that hasn’t stopped wowing us, central Ohio athletes have created indelible memories for followers of high school sports. After chronicling “20 Years of Upsets” in 2009 and the “Most Dominating Teams” last summer, for our third annual summer series we set out to find the “Top Individual Performances” of the ThisWeek Community Newspapers era that began 22 years ago. Discussions were held among the staff at ThisWeek, as well as with our colleague Steve Blackledge from The Columbus Dispatch, and we arrived at a top 10 along with 10 honorable mentions. Beginning July 14, we will run a retrospective article on each of the top five performances, with one story running each week until we finish on Aug. 11 with what we consider the top individual performance. So what makes one performance stand higher than another? One key factor in the rankings dealt with the stage on

record when he won the Division I boys pole vault championship last month, but Brookhaven’s Khalilah Carpenter ranks higher because she broke the state record in the girls 100 meters and also added a title in the 200 in the 2000 state meet. Without further ado, below are Nos. 10-6 of the top individual performances of the past 22 years, with an honorable mention list in the accompanying box: 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 7516 to earn the City League-Red Division title and a Division II playoff berth as the senior and future Ohio State running back rushed for 411 yards and eight touchdowns on 19 carries. He had six first-half touchdowns and added scoring runs of 57 and 71 yards in the second half.

Maurice Hall (22), a 2001 Brookhaven graduate, had a game for the ages when he rushed for 411 yards and eight touchdowns on 19 carries in a 75-16 victory over Briggs in a City League-Red Division game on Oct. 27, 2000.

which it occurred. Performances that happened late in the postseason against tough opposition were given extra credit. B.J. Mullens of Canal Winchester scored 62 points during

a 2008 regular-season game, but Charles Johnson ranks ahead of that for his 57-point game that helped Watkins Memorial upset a state-ranked team in the 1995 Division II district tournament.

Also considered was whether the athlete performed spectacularly in more than one aspect during the game or meet in question. For example, Gahanna’s Jake Blankenship set a state-meet

Many factors cause dip in area Legion teams need to make your jump in improvement during the summer. “(The Team Columbus) schedule is such that we’re playing select teams and we’re playing the true Legion teams in these tournaments. That’s what we want.�

By BRAD EMERINE ThisWeek Community Newspapers

How long does it take a trend to become the norm? In the past few years, central Ohio baseball players have started taking their talents to travel squads at the expense of American Legion teams. The players, high school coaches and Legion coaches debate the reasons for the change, but it doesn’t appear to be something that can be easily resolved. “The number of teams has decreased, but I wouldn’t say the talent has necessarily decreased that much,� said Michael Higgins, baseball chairman in Legion District 12. “I think we peaked a few years back when we had a dozen or more teams in District 12. Now we have six teams in the Senior Division and we have four teams in the Junior Division, which is in its second season of being officially recognized by American Legion. “When we had 12 (Senior Division) teams, people around the state were amazed. I think the increase to 12 teams was the abnormality, not the decrease in posts we’re now experiencing.�

ECONOMIC WOES Higgins said one of the big reasons for fewer posts offering baseball is the weak economy. “The economy has definitely played a role because many of the posts can’t afford to play in tournaments every weekend in addition to the league play during the week,� Higgins said. “I also think the increasing number of participants in sports such as soccer and lacrosse has taken away some of our kids.� About a dozen years ago, Newark Post 85 ran into a similar problem and decided to only fund a few of its team’s tournaments. The area’s baseball gurus got together and formed the Licking County Athletics. After a few separate years, the team and Post 85 reunited and added a few other sponsors. The Athletics played a Legion schedule, a Babe Ruth schedule and also played in select elite tournaments. Pickerington Post 283 is in

the same position, playing a schedule similar to what the Athletics played in the past. “Our post is the reason we still have a true Legion team,� coach Chris Weber said. “They support us financially way beyond what 90 percent of other posts in Ohio do. They believe in Legion baseball and baseball has brought good publicity to our post.� Because of Post 283’s financial support, the team plays other travel squads and competes in a number of elite tournaments. “We’re in a special situation where our post supports us well financially,� Weber said. “Some posts just don’t have the money to send the team all over the state and the Midwest.�


While the bad economy can be blamed for many things, there is more to this issue. There is a philosophical difference between Legion baseball and high school baseball

LaToya Turner, Pickerington girls basketball (March 19, 1999) — The 6-foot-4 senior helped the Tigers advance to the Division I state final and exact revenge for a painful defeat with her 29-point performance in a 51-35 win over Wadsworth. They had lost to the Grizzlies in a 1997 state semifinal. 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. The Tigers beat Mason 4630 the next day to earn their sixth state title. Darcy Fishback, Upper Arlington girls swimming (Feb. 27-28, 2009) — The 2009 Division I state meet in Canton was full of memories for this senior as she led the Golden Bears to their fifth consecutive team championship. 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). 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.



coaches. “The reason for the decline (in Legion baseball), in my opinion, is that there are too many baseball teams in central Ohio at this age,� Worthington Post 239 coach Jim Townsend said. “I think the talent is diluted and the result seems to be that Legion is not as competitive as it once was. “I think the high school coaches chose the easy way out and turned posts into an extension of the spring season. They want their kids playing together and that has ruined Legion baseball in central Ohio. Outside of central Ohio, Legion remains very competitive.� Post 239 went 2-2 in the state tournament last season. But Thomas Worthington coach Stephen Gussler, Worthington Kilbourne coach Jeff Boulware, Watterson coach Scott Manahan and Upper Arlington coach Matt Middleton then decided to form a travel team, Team Columbus. “There are multiple reasons for choosing not to play Legion

Honorable mention JAKE BLANKENSHIP, Gahanna boys track and field (June 4, 2011) — The junior cleared 17 feet in the pole vault to capture the Division I state championship. That set the state-meet record in the event and helped him win a yearlong battle with Olentangy Liberty twin brothers Joey and Chris Uhle, who took second and third, respectively. TROY BOWERS, Westerville South wrestling (March 4-6, 1999) — A broken hand sidelined him for a month of the regular season, but Bowers went on to pin three of his four opponents at state and win the Division I title at heavyweight. In the final, Bowers pinned future NFL player Alex Stepanovich of Berea in 1:03. CLAIRE DURKIN, Worthington Kilbourne girls cross country (Nov. 3, 2007) — Durkin completed a stellar prep career by winning the state championship in 17:10.5. The time set the state-meet record in Division I. MINDY HAMMOND, DeSales girls soccer (Nov. 5, 1997) — During a state semifinal against defending champion Chagrin Falls, the senior goalkeeper made a diving save to preserve a one-goal lead with 17:38 remaining. Three minutes later, she scored on a penalty kick to seal what would become a 3-0 win. JACK RAFFERTY, Dublin Coffman football (Oct. 31, 2003) — The senior quarterback who would become the district’s Player of the Year in Division I and the ThisWeek Super 25 captain threw for 152 yards and rushed for a school-record 285 yards with four touchdowns as the Shamrocks beat Marion

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 freethrow line. His point total broke the all-divisions district tournament scoring mark. Johnson added eight rebounds, six steals and five assists. Khalilah Carpenter, Brookhaven girls track and field (June 2-3, 2000) — At the 2000 Division I state meet in Dayton Welcome Stadium, the junior broke the


Harding 31-22 in their playoff opener. KRISTA KEIR, Westerville South girls track and field (June 6-7, 1997) — Two weeks after setting the state record in the discus (176-5), Keir threw 166-10 on June 6 to break the state-meet record. The next day, she threw 50-4 3/4 in the shot put to capture another title. WENDY LYONS, Westerville South girls tennis (Oct. 19-20, 1990) — Lyons capped a career in which she went 126-6 by losing just one set in the 1990 Division I state tournament. Her 2-6, 6-2, 6-0 win over Centerville’s Melissa Zimpfer in the final gave her a 41-0 record for the season. B.J. MULLENS, Canal Winchester boys basketball (Jan. 21, 2008) — At the Flyin’ to the Hoop Classic in Fairborn, the senior and future Ohio State and NBA player had 62 points, 24 rebounds and three blocked shots to lead the Indians to a 79-69 win over New York (N.Y.)

That time eclipsed her 1998 meet record of 11.74 and broke the all-time mark of 11.63 set in 1993 by Dayton Dunbar’s Danielle Twitty. The next day, she won the 100 in 11.71 and captured the 200 title in 23.69, a time that lowered the state mark she already held. Carpenter also helped Brookhaven’s 400 relay to a seventh-place finish.

this year,� Middleton said. “It has become a form of high school-only ball and the play is so inconsistent. We would beat up on somebody one day and then get beaten up the next day. The level of play was so drastic and inconsistent that, in this sport, you can get bored with it rather quickly. “In Columbus, it’s been about keeping the younger guys together from the same high school. In Upper Arlington, we kept the freshmen together and just played U-15 travel ball. But the older they get, you want them competing and being successful playing with and against strong competition.� With the high school season being short in Ohio, it is difficult to put the blame solely on high school coaches, Middleton said. “It’s all about how much improvement you can make in the offseason,� he said. “Truthfully, the high school season is so short, and when you have two straight weeks of rainouts, you really accomplish very little.

Columbus Junior returns to Scarlet By BRAD EMERINE ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The eighth Columbus Junior presented by the Memorial Tournament will be held Tuesday, July 12, through Thursday, July 14, at the Ohio State Golf Club Scarlet Course. It is the third time that the American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) event will be played on the Scarlet Course after stops in 2004 and 2009. The Columbus Junior has been held at four venues, also including Dornoch Golf Club (2005-06), Tartan Fields (2008) and the County Club at Muirfield Village (2007, 2010). Last year, Nicholas Grubnich of Crown Point, Ind., shot a 6-under-par 210 and survived five playoff holes to win the boys division and Lindsey Weaver of Scottsdale, Ariz., posted an 11-under 205 to cruise to a 12-stroke victory in the girls division. Neither player will be in the field this season. There are 18 central Ohio players scheduled to take part in the 84-player field, which features top junior players (ages 12-18) from 16 states, Canada and Colombia. Area players on the boys side are Garrett Brickley (Pickerington), Alex Carpenter (Westerville), Thomas Dunne (Dublin), Joo-Young Lee (Hilliard), Matthew Moosavian (Westerville), Mert Selamet (Dublin), David Shepherd (Dublin), Blake Stewart (Dublin), Drew Thompson (Pickerington) and Nate Yankovich (Blacklick). Dunne (Dublin Coffman), Carpenter (St. Charles), Lee (Hilliard Darby), Thomp-

son (Pickerington North) and Yankovich (St. Charles) all competed in the event last season. Carpenter was one of three others who joined Grubnich in the playoff after all four finished with 210s. Dunne (215) tied for 15th, Lee (219) tied for 33rd, Thompson (221) was 37th and Yankovich (222) tied for 38th. “My goal is to finish in the top five,� said Thompson, a 2011 graduate who will play for Guilford College (Greensboro, N.C.), which is a highly ranked NCAA Division III program. “It will be my sixth AJGA event this season, it’s on a fun course and I’ve been playing pretty well.� Yankovich, who will be a senior in the fall, is familiar with the Scarlet Course after playing in the state tournament with the Cardinals the past two seasons. St. Charles won the title both seasons and Yankovich tied for second (75) in the tournament in 2009, when rain canceled the second round. Last season he tied for 10th (155) and teammate Michael Ricaurte (144) was medalist. Carpenter (159) tied for 18th as St. Charles won by 11 strokes. “I’ve played that course several times, but I don’t have a (score) in mind because it depends on how it’s playing then,� said Yankovich, who has made college visits to Miami University, Michigan State, Illinois and Purdue. “It’s the closest AJGA event, but I want to go in there like I do every tournament — all business. I want to focus on my game, play my best and have fun doing it.� In the girls field, area competitors in-

clude Sierra Everson (Gahanna), Tess Fraser (Marysville), Lauren Grogan (Columbus), Erin Harper (Dublin), Natalie Irwin (Columbus), Julie Lechner (Powell), Morgan Ransom (Columbus) and Gina Son (Westerville). Ransom (Columbus Academy), Fraser, Grogan (Watterson) and Lechner (Olentangy Liberty) competed in the event last season. Ransom (227) was fifth, Grogan (229) tied for seventh, Lechner (240) was 18th and Fraser (243) was 19th. Ransom, a senior, was the Division II state champion (140) last season on OSU’s Gray Course after finishing runner-up as a sophomore and freshman. Grogan finished third (151) in the Division I state tournament as Watterson was eighth. Fraser (160) tied for 18th overall as an individual qualifier. “I didn’t play to my ability (in the Columbus Junior) last season,� said Fraser, a senior who won the Tanglewood Junior on the Future Collegians World Tour with a 157 on March 19-20. “Competing in the AJGA is a little stressful, but it is opening my eyes some. I hope to make a name for myself and I’m getting contacts, but I haven’t really heard seriously from any colleges yet. “I hope to finish in the top five in Columbus and I’m working hard trying to hit greens in regulation. I’m hitting fairways, but I need to get to the green to give myself more birdie opportunities.�

Lindsay Agnew (left) of Dublin Jerome and the Ohio Premier Eagles U-16 team scored seven goals in five games to help the Eagles advance to the final of the Midwest Regional Cup.

SOCCER •The Ohio Premier Eagles U-13 girls team lost to Eclipse Select 3-0 in a semifinal on June 28. “We are probably the best two teams in our region, so it’s a shame we had to meet in the semifinals,” King said. “The score wasn’t indicative of how close the game was because we gave up a couple of soft goals by our standards. We made a couple of mistakes on our end and they punished us for it.”

minutes left to make it 4-0. It was the second three-goal game of the tournament for Agnew, who finished with seven goals in five games. “We were under siege for the first eight minutes and Nicole really saved us on a ball that would have scored,” King said. “Lindsay had a great tournament and her goal just a minute into the second half really broke their spirit because they were going into a stiff wind.”

Universal newborn screening tests, which are performed soon after birth, measure a baby’s ability to hear sounds at a few different frequencies. However, as effective as these mandatory screenings are, passing a newborn hearing test is not a guarantee against deafness. The potential problem is that infants may have some hearing at the time the test is administered but develop hearing loss in subsequent years. This finding comes from a recent study of children with cochlear implants, devices that transmit sound to the auditory nerve. Nearly one-third of the children with the implanted devices initially passed mandatory screening. With this in mind, a second round of screening one or two years later is suggested. Some babies are born with hearing problems while other children are born with normal hearing and begin to have hearing problems as they grow older. It’s important to know what to expect as your baby grows, because hearing problems can delay the development of voice, speech, and language skills. If you are concerned about your child’s hearing please call us today at 614-654-4309 to schedule a complementary hearing & speech evaluation. Many of our patients have discovered that traveling to Gahanna was worth their drive. We are First in Class on Angie List, we beat competitor’s pricing by 25% - 70%, we have the top 10 leading hearing aid brands, and we put our customer’s first. We are located at 1000 Morrison Road Suite H, Gahanna. Come see why patients are willing to make the drive to invest in their hearing. We look forward to hearing from you

We handle Starkey, Phonak, Siemens, Unitron, MicroTech, GN ReSound, Rexton, Oticon, and Widex. Plus, we have the same products as NU-Ear, Audibel, AudioSync, and Miracle Ear, but you will save $1,000’s with us! We take a bite out of the cost of hearing aids!

If you’re looking for an exotic travel experience, start by exploring your own backyard. At the Wilds, rare and endangered animals roam freely on 10,000 rolling acres. And while these colorful species can be entertaining to observe, they’re also very enlightening. In fact, cutting-edge conservation and crucial environmental education programs provide research that can help save animal species the world over. Plan your own safari adventure at the Wilds, and discover just how far something so close can take you.

G. Michael’s Bistro serves seafood treasures Summer officially just started, but I’m already worried you’re going to blow it. How? Well, by missing out on great-here today, gone-tomorrow delicacies. That would be a shame, because eating fleetingly available seasonal treasures — and I’m not even talking about vegetables — not only thrills your taste buds, but it fills you with a seize-the-day pleasure that makes life richer. You want that, right? If not, stop reading. If yes, get yourself to G. Michael’s for a plate of rare and incredible seafood. With its warm-weather menu in place, G. Michael’s has lightened up a bit. I’ll eventually get to some wonderful items on that list (and how to get them at a discount), but first I want to point you to the recurring summertime specials that have gotten me so “Don’t miss it!” excited: sublime and difficult-to-find white-fleshed salmon plus some of the best soft-shell crabs around. Summer is prime soft-shell crab sea-

MENU by G.A. Benton son, and I love those crazy-looking things. Unfortunately, they too often arrive uncrispy, cooked to mush and so puny there’s not much to sink your teeth into. Not here. G. Michael’s soft shells — which get a pleasingly ungreasy and delightfully crackly cornmeal jacketing — are generally thicker, providing pockets of sweet lovely meat. Lately I’ve had them in appetizer form ($12) detailed New Orleans style, with racy red rice and a rich remoulade sauce, and Asian-inflected, with a stir-fry-like slaw. Both were terrific. We’re also currently enjoying the shortlived wild Alaskan salmon season. If you’ve only had commonplace farmed Atlantic salmon, I urge you to seek out their more elegant Pacific cousin. I recently hit the lottery at G. Mike’s by scor-

you’re liable to eat — came partnered with stuffing-like cremini mushroom fritters, a vivid tomato and herb ratatouille, and a couple (possibly food-chain-riffing) shrimp. Order this stunner immediately if you spot it as a special. If pristine and rarely seen seafood isn’t your thing, try the lean and mean Marinated American Bison Flatiron Steak ($28). The tender, beefy meat had a sexy char on it and except for a couple of gristly bites, was a delight. It arrived with a fruity, Worcestershire-perked sauce plus irresistibly crisp and oniony smoked goudaenhanced hash browns. If entrees don’t beckon, G. Michael’s excellent (and not-so-small) small plates have big flavors and can be had for just $6 until 7 p.m. Monday through Friday (two are plenty for dinner). Of course the awesome Shrimp and Grits is on the greatest hits list, but here are some favorites: • Seared Jumbo Scallops: This place is also famous for its great scallops, and

this dynamic duo — crested with intense pickled rhubarb and plated with a warm apple and fennel salad — only enhances that reputation. • Pressed Veal Sweetbreads: Wow. Imagine creamy and complex grilled sausage patties and cheesy hash browns (plus a colorful corn relish and smoky tomato sauce) for dinner. • Sweet Yellow Corn Johnnycakes: Another play on breakfast-for-dinner, these were fluffy and savory pancakes layered with game-changing Pernodsauced spinach, mild crawfish tails, peppers and an onion sauce. • Grilled Housemade Bratwurst Patty: Happiness on a beautiful breakfast-style biscuit with killer kraut and mustard.

After 14 years in Northland, Spain to reopen in Lewis Center

By Chris Parker/ThisWeek

Spain Restaurant is opening at the intersection of Powell Road and U.S. Route 23 after being in Northland for 14 years

A new era in the history of Spain Restaurant begins in Lewis Center. After 14 years in the Northland area, the restaurant has relocated to 76 Powell Road, in the former Beeb’s Deli location. Owner Andres Casal said he closed the Northland site in late May to concentrate on his new store, set to open later this month. “The space is comfortable,” he said. “It’s nice — not too big, not too small.” He has spent the last several months renovating the interior, building a bar and installing a new floor and seating. The 3,600-square-foot building seats 120, with another 40 on the patio. The menu offers many traditional Spanish dishes, such as paella, gazpacho and cabrito, or goat, which is marinated for four days before being slow-cooked. The bill of fare is heavy on seafood dishes, with beef and poultry dishes represented as well. There’s even duck a l’orange, using Casal’s own special recipe. Most dinner entrees are in the $17 to $20 range. In addition to a set lunch menu, 10 specials will be featured for the afternoon crowd, Casal said. No lunch item will top $10, he said. All desserts — including flan, cheesecake and tres leches cake — are made from scratch. Spain also will carry a full liquor license but will not offer tapas, a style of small plates often misinterpreted in American restaurants. “Maybe in the future I’ll open a tapas bar — a real tapas bar — downtown,” he said. As with the previous location, the latest Spain will have white tablecloths and linen napkins

for a sophisticated look but a casual ambience. The restaurant got its start in 1994 on the West Side. Casal, who began cooking professionally in restaurants in New Jersey, was hired at the original location shortly after it opened. He bought his way into the ownership over the years. Casal will reopen Spain nightclub in the former storefront at 888 W. Dublin-Granville Road in the Best Western Hotel in the next week or so, he said. It will be open Friday and Saturday. Yet, the neighborhood couldn’t seem to get back on the upswing, so Casal decided to move to an area that’s closer to his customer base. With few upscale dining options in the immediate area, the restaurant is perfectly situated between Polaris and nearby Powell, he said. “It’s good for me,” he said. “Competition is good but sometimes it’s good to not have too much competition.” Misperceptions still persist about Spanish cooking, which tends to be lumped in with any cuisine south of the American border, Casal said. He said his style of cuisine is largely uncomplicated, allowing for clean, natural flavors. “I think the best food is the simplest,” he said. Spain will be open for lunch Monday through Friday and dinner hours daily. For more information, call (740) 548-6900. Calorie Countess Jennifer Burton suggests taking the time to read the labels of breakfast bars, some of which offer lots of sugar and little else. W i n e Wisdom author Roger Jennifer Burton Gentile recommends the Joel Gott 2008 California Zinfandel, which offers lush berries, pepper and tobacco. Roger Gentile
