Nov. 8 election

Harris: Tax hike will help city avoid cuts By DAVID S. OWEN ThisWeek Community Newspapers Paperwork is being filed this week with the Franklin County Board of Elections for the city of Reynoldsburg to put an income-tax increase on the Nov. 8 ballot. If successful, the measure would raise the tax rate from 1.5 to 2.5 percent. Officially called a “resolution declaring the necessity of an election,” city council voted 5-2 to approve the ordi-

nance by emergency action July 25, city auditor Richard Harris said. Council members Doug Joseph and Nathan Burd voted against the measure. The increase of 1 percentage point would represent a 67-percent increase in income taxes. In mid-July, when council voted 5-2 to place an issue on the ballot, Joseph said council should have spent “more time looking at cuts and reforms before racing to the ballot.” Burd also objected, citing the increase

as “massive.” He agreed that council should take more time to see how it could better manage what it has. Harris said a 1-percentage-point increase in the income tax rate would help the city recover a $1.7-million shortfall in its projected 2012 revenue. “Council passed the tax budget and sent it to the county, that showed we were going to be deficient $1.3 million in the general fund and $400,000 in the general debt service,” Harris said. “That’s why there’s that note in there where we

moved $2 million from the CIP fund over to the general fund in order to make up that hole. But the problem is, this is an ongoing thing, going on for years and years and years.” Harris said major cuts in city services would be necessary if the tax increase does not pass. Mayor Brad McCloud has indicated that cuts being considered are police officer positions and all parks and recreation programs. Harris said an increase of 1 percent-

age point would generate about $5.8 million, with collection beginning Jan. 1, 2012. He said although the city needs to make up for $1.7 million in projected revenue losses next year, the additional money generated would be needed for infrastructure improvements. “We need $2.2 million in infrastructure improvements that we should be doing, that we’re now seven to eight See INCOME-TAX HIKE, page A3

(Right) Dials and Dudonis examine a milkweed plant during the hike.

Two new leaders have been named to head Reynoldsburg schools’ eSTEM and BELL academies beginning this fall. Marcy Raymond, former principal of Metro High School, will lead the Environmental Science, Technology, Engineering and Math academy, or eSTEM, with a starting salary of $101,000, not including insurance. Erica Dodson, former assistant principal of Dublin Scioto High School, will lead the Business, Education, Leadership and Law academy, or BELL, with a starting salary of $91,500, including insurance at $17,000. Raymond replaces Reynoldsburg High School assistant principal Tom Lanier, who left the district at the end of this past year to become principal of Pickerington High School North. Dodson replaces former eSTEM academy leader Leslie Kelly, who will start her job this fall as principal of Walnut Springs Middle School. Raymond, 47, a native of Zanesville, received a bachelor of science degree in chemistry and history from Muskingum College in 1986 and a master’s degree in policy and leadership from Ohio State University in 1998. After graduating, she taught chemistry and physical science at Bowling Green High School for two See ACADEMY LEADERS, page A2

Farmers market

‘Twangs’ Chaiffetz to bring banjo Aug. 11 By DAVID S. OWEN ThisWeek Community Newspapers The Reynoldsburg farmers market in Huber Park on Aug. 11 will be filled with the sounds of banjo music, courtesy of local player Ira “Twangs” Chaiffetz, who will entertain market-goers beginning at 4 p.m. The market runs from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. every Thursday until Sept. 29 in Huber Park, 1520 Davidson Drive. A native of Philadelphia, Chaiffetz, 57, said he has been playing banjo since he was a little boy.

His performances feature a variety of genres, including bluegrass, jazz, Dixieland and American old-time music made popular by such artists as Lester Flatt, Pete Seeger, the Kingston Trio, Earl Scruggs, Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Ira “Twangs” Rangers. He performs regularChaiffetz ly at the North Market. Chaiffetz, a self-employed investor, loves playing banjo and said he could play for hours on end if he’s in the right mood.

“It is very difficult to be unhappy with a banjo in your hands,” he said. “You can do doleful on anything, but it takes a lot more effort with banjos around. “I grew up in Philadelphia in the 1960s, and in Philadelphia in the 1960s, if you wanted to play the banjo, you had to teach yourself,” he said. His desire to play the banjo became strong during a family trip in 1959, while driving back from Falling Waters, W.Va. “We were driving back through southern Penn-

Reynoldsburg director of parks and recreation Jason Shamblin said the time is near for people to begin registering for its fall and winter program offerings.

Licking County voters

Conservation district levy to appear on Nov. 8 ballot Licking County voters in November will decide on a 0.1-mill operating levy request by the Licking County Soil and Water Conservation District. County commissioners passed a resolution July 28 to place the five-year levy on the Nov. 8 ballot. Conservation district officials anticipate the levy would generate about $370,000 per year. It would cost property owners $3.06 per year for every $100,000 of assessed valuation, according to the county auditor’s office. Officials say the levy is necessary to support the conservation district’s programs and services, which have been reduced because of decreases in state and county funding. Additional reductions in funding are expected as a result of cuts in the state’s Local Government Fund over the next two years.

Jim Kiracofe, program administrator for the conservation district, said the county cannot adequately fund all its discretionary agencies unless additional sources of revenue are utilized. “It doesn’t look good for us long-term unless we can find other sources of revenue,” Kiracofe said. He said the conservation district also would search for grants to fund programs. The conservation district “is really about making sure soil and water resources remain sustainable for future generations,” Kiracofe said. “Without a local presence of well-trained people, it would be very easy to slip backward.” The mission of the conservation district is “to promote conservation of natural resources through local leadership, education and technical assistance,” according to its website. — Neil Thompson

ACADEMY LEADERS Continued from page A1 years before moving home to Zanesville to teach at Zanesville High School. Raymond then moved to Reynoldsburg in 1990 with her husband, Chad, where she was a substitute science teacher at Reynoldsburg High School before becoming a full-time chemistry teacher the following year. In 1998, Raymond was named assistant principal at RHS under then-principal Steve Dackin. In 2000, she became gifted-education coordinator for the district. In 2001, Raymond left the district to become program director for the Center for Essential School Reform in Columbus before being hired in 2003 by the Knowledgworks Foundation as its senior program officer to assist in the Ohio High School Transformation Initiative. In 2005, Raymond was on the planning team, along with Dan Hoffman, Battelle Institute and Ohio State, that started the STEMbased Metro High School. She became its first principal. She continued as principal at Metro before accepting the position as leader of the eSTEM academy at Reynoldsburg’s new Summit Road high school campus. Raymond said her mother, Vicky French, inspired her to make a career in education. French recently retired after 48 years with Zanesville schools. “I want to be like her,” Raymond said. “She’s a tireless worker and she believes that every kid deserves a chance.”

As the new leader of the eSTEM academy, she said, she wants to build on what has been established under Kelly’s watch this past year, then amplify and accelerate the program into the future. “Having had the experience in starting a STEM school and running a STEM school for the past five years, I understand what the opportunities are and I think I can help amplify the opportunity for kids,” Raymond said. “I know how to do some of the things that will take it to the next level, because it’s got a great foundation. The teachers are awesome. They’ve worked very hard.” Dodson, 35, a native of Dublin, Ohio, received a bachelor of arts degree in education from Ohio Dominican University in 1999 and a master’s degree in teaching and learning from Nova Southeastern University in Florida in 2003. In 2006, she attended Ohio State, receiving her administrator’s certificate in educational policy and leadership in pursuit of her doctorate, yet to be declared. Beginning in 1999, Dodson worked eight years at Westerville’s Genoa Middle School, teaching history the first four years and English the last four years. She came to Reynoldsburg next, teaching from 2007-09 before becoming assistant principal at Dublin Scioto for the past two years. She said she has always wanted to be a teacher and could not imagine doing anything else. As leader of the BELL academy at the Reynoldsburg Livingston Avenue campus, Dodson

said coming back to Reynoldsburg schools is something she looks forward to. “I look forward to working with some of the teachers I got to know while I taught here, and also building on what the district has started with its academies,” Dodson said. “When I was at Dublin we had the Dublin Teachers Academy our juniors and seniors participated in, and I would like to establish one of those in Reynoldsburg.” Dodson said having a Reynoldsburg teachers academy will give upperclassmen the opportunity to visit classrooms, providing them with early exposure to teaching and the profession. It’s something she said will help them as they move into college. She said she loved being at Dublin schools but looks forward to the opportunity presented to her at Reynoldsburg. “The BELL academy will need to develop some partnerships with different businesses and law firms, leadership programs, and we’re currently defining those categories,” Dodson said. Reynoldsburg assistant superintendent Dan Hoffman said the district is very pleased to have both Dodson and Raymond come back to Reynoldsburg schools to take on their new positions. “I’m really excited about what we’ve been able to plan,” Hoffman said. “There’s something special going on in Reynoldsburg when they’re coming back from places like Dublin and Metro, so we’re tickled to have this kind of talent.”

FARMERS MARKET Continued from page A1 sylvania; it’s 3 o’clock in the morning, and we’re in a 1950 Ford, which at the time had 300,000 miles on it, and it was my job to play with the radio,” Chaiffetz said. “I discovered the station, WWVA, and then discovered Flatt and Scruggs (a popular bluegrass group) and decided I was going to learn how to do that because it was, like, too cool.” As he heard more banjo music at local folk festivals through the years, Chaiffetz said, he became increasingly convinced that the banjo was the instrument for him.

Chaiffetz said he owns a collection of different types of banjos but primarily plays the fivestring. “The fifth string kind of like occupies a musical (baseline), like drones and bagpipes, but I guess you could say it provides you with your own rhythm section while you’re playing something,” Chaiffetz said. Chaiffetz plays popular songs like “The World Is Waiting for the Sunrise,” “Lady of Spain” and “I’m Going to Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter.” Chaiffetz said he plays unplugged most of the time, always avoiding an amplifier unless he

must use one. “I travel light,” he said. “I show up with the banjo with the associated things: the banjo case and the finger picks, which stay in the pocket of my shirt because they get crushed anywhere else.” The annual farmers market is in its fourth year and features fresh produce, honey, baked goods, meats and other goods from local farmers. The market also provides shaded areas with plenty of free parking. For more information about the market, call (614) 322-6832 or email

INCOME-TAX HIKE Continued from page A1 years behind on,” Harris said. “There’s about $4 million right there, and they’ve talked about more police officers, so this will generate the money, and we won’t have this problem for the foreseeable future.” If the tax increase is not approved in November, Harris said, council could consider making major cuts or decide to lower the tax credit, currently at 100 percent for residents who live in the city but work in and pay income taxes to another municipality. More than three-fourths of Reynoldsburg residents who file local income-tax returns work in other municipalities, he said. They currently receive a 100-percent credit for taxes paid to those municipalities. Eliminating the credit entirely would generate about $6 million annually for the city. That scenario would affect more people, Harris said. If the tax credit were eliminated, those working outside the city would pay the 1.5-percent income tax to Reynoldsburg on top of whatever they pay where they work. “If you’re working in Columbus, you’d be paying 1.5 percent to us and 2.5 percent to Columbus,” Harris said. “You’d go all of the sudden to 4 percent. “So if the income-tax rate increase passes in November, those working outside the city would not have to pay anything addi-

tional, and those living and working here will pay an additional 1 percent.” Harris said the city’s financial situation must be resolved one way or another. “It’s a situation where a solution is going to have to be found

to the city’s financial problems, and it’s not going to be an easy task, no matter what happens,” he said. “After Abercrombie & Fitch left town 10 years ago to New Albany, they took about $2 million with them, and it’s been a struggle ever since.”

Continued from page A1 Both leagues play in the Reynoldsburg school fieldhouse gymnasium. Shamblin said an exact start date is not established yet, but they usually begin sometime in late October and continue into January. Among other popular programs coming up in September are youth golf lessons and a quilting class, Shamblin said. Youth golf lessons cost $75 per person and run Sept. 8-29, meeting every Thursday from 7 to 8 p.m. at the Four Seasons Golf Center on East Broad Street. The quilting class starts Sept. 14. This year’s project will be to learn how to design a Halloween-themed quilt, Shamblin said. The fee for the quilting class, which usually meets in the municipal building or the police department, is $30 per participant. Shamblin said registration for the golf lessons and quilting class would continue until the day before each program begins. He said there are varied reasons why people participate in the parks and recreation’s programs offered each year. They include the opportunity to learn a new skill, meet new people with similar interests, or simply enjoy and compete with others in a sport. “There really isn’t a better way to work with youth and teach good character development, so

carrying on respect and responsibility, those are our primary focuses,” Shamblin said. Shamblin said near the end of each year, fees for parks and recreation programs are evaluated to see if they need to be adjusted to cover the direct cost of each program or to offset some indirect costs. With the city facing a $1.3-million shortfall next year, Shamblin said, increasing program fees might bring in a few thousand dollars, and every bit helps. But he said a defined goal has not been established yet. In other words, he said, it is not clear yet if fees will go up for next year. “In the next few weeks and months we’ll be evaluating our fee structure related to all the things going on with the city and we’ll be working with the administration and city council and try and come up with a plan to look at the fees and come up with a reasonable way to adjust them,” Shamblin said. “We have to get more direction on what the end goal is and where we need to be, so we have a little bit of work before we can really say what our goal is. There has to be a defined goal in the end,” he said. For more program information and all registration forms, go to the city’s website at .

Letters Clean air provisions are much-needed To the editor: As Congress debates weakening or delaying the implementation of Clean Air Act standards that would protect Ohioans from pollution and reduce the number of asthma attacks, heart attacks and other incidents of illness, my mother and I recently did the only thing we knew to do to make sure our voices were heard in this debate. I am 18 years old, and my lung capacity has been deeply affected by severe asthma since I was a young child. I wonder from day to day how the quality of our air will affect the quality of my life. We knew it was time to speak up and tell our story. We visited the offices of U.S. Rep. Steve Stivers and U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown to ask for their support of the Clean Air Act protections that will improve our air and protect everyone with respiratory issues from exposure to damaging pollution. We truly appreciate the warm reception we received at both offices, and we are hopeful that both Rep. Stivers and Sen. Brown will hear our message and defend the Clean Air Act. Some members of Congress would like to see the clean air protections weakened with votes that will occur as early as this week. Visiting these offices was a great experience for my mother and me, and I hope that we made a difference for everyone, because we all deserve clean air. Kevin Hall Renee Hall Reynoldsburg

Many provided help to city cleanup week To the editor: The city of Reynoldsburg hosted its sixth annual Community Clean-Up Week June 3-12. A 20minute makeover kicked off the week at 10 a.m. June 3 with local businesses, schools and others taking a few minutes to clean up their immediate area.

The big day, June 4, was very successful. Eleven senior or disabled citizens were assisted with fix-up projects on their homes. Cintas collected 10,000 pounds of shredding. Rumpke collected a huge amount of recyclables, trash and yard waste. Red recycling bins were once again exchanged. Ohio Drop-Off also collected a truckload of electronics. Habitat for Humanity also had a truck on site and collected usable items that were discarded. Without the support of the following in-kind sponsors, this event would not have happened: Rumpke, Cintas, Ohio Drop-Off, SignA-Rama, the Reynoldsburg Visitor’s Bureau and Reynoldsburg United Methodist Church. Much appreciated financial support came from Watcon Consulting Engineers, Burgess and Niple, Asebrook Architects, CT Consultants, EMH&T, the M-E Companies and the ReynoldsburgPickerington Rotary Club,. A big thank you goes to the more than 100 volunteers donating time and clean up trash and litter throughout the city. Volunteers were rewarded with food and drinks from the following local sponsors: Grandma’s Pizza, McDonald’s, Pepsi, Walmart, Creno’s Pizza, Jolly Pirate Donuts,

Blocks Bagels, Dunkin’ Donuts and Little Caesar’s Pizza. There were more than 150 entries for our poster contest this year. Judges picked Delaney Kesterson as the grand-prize winner. Runners-up were Alyssa Shiffman, Adelaide Dunlap, Luka Wong, Kyleigh Cornwall, MacKenzie Ruschill, Sydney Maginn, Liz Wynn, Daisey Mills, Jessica Quach, Seth Lewis, Lauren Green, Sean Moore and Armani Horton. Delaney’s poster was featured on a T-shirt given to volunteers on June 4. Winners received an award certificate along with prizes donated by the following local businesses: Just Because Gifts, Rainbow Station Day Care, Dairy Queen, Anthony Thomas Candy, Buffalo Wild Wings, Little Caesar’s Pizza, Creno’s Pizza, Five Guys Burgers and Fries, Massey’s Pizza, Four Seasons Golf Center and TGIFriday’s. Thanks to all. Your support helped make the sixth annual Clean-Up Week a huge success. We look forward to the 2012 Clean-Up Week. Diana Hartings Mary Hudson 2011 Community Clean-Up Committee

Have You Heard? by Greg VanHorssen A CHECK ON YOUR CHILD’S HEARING While parents can usually be counted upon to take their children for regular physicals, dental check-ups, and even eye exams, annual hearing checks are not on everyone’s list of pediatric exams. The fact is, however, that children need regular hearing tests to identify any hearing concerns before they lead to problems. With this in mind, the American Speech-LanguageHearing Association recommends that hearing tests should be performed prior to children starting school. Once children enter kindergarten, they should have annual hearing tests right through third grade. After that, the tests should be repeated when children are in the seventh and eleventh grades. A hearing test should also be prompted by concerns about a child’s language, speech, learning, or hearing capabilities. A child with undetected hearing loss may not be able to develop normal speech and language or acquire the cognitive abilities needed for learning. Children whose hearing loss is not identified until 2 or 3 years of age may suffer from permanent impairment of speech, language, and learning. If you are concerned about your child’s hearing, please call ABSOLUTE HEARING SOLUTIONS today at 614-654-4309. We are located at 1000 Morrison Rd., Suite H, Gahanna.

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!

Harvest Pizzeria: New spot serves superlative pies On an opening-day visit, I was so blown away by the great pizzas and general sophistication of Harvest Pizzeria I couldn’t believe it had only been in business for a few hours. Ergo, I went back the very next day to confirm what I ate was in fact that sensational. Well, it was, and frankly it’s a good bet I’m perched on a seat there right now, buzzsawing through marvelous Harvest munchies while you’re reading this. Man, the German Village pizza scene has gone from famine to feast at warp speed. So what was formerly an area of town blessed with a wealth of terrific restaurants but cursed with a dearth of pizzerias is now home to the very best place to eat pizzas in Columbus. That’s because not only does Harvest crank out phenomenal ’zas, but from top to bottom, from its cute, Euro-ish patio to its tastefully

MENU by G. A. BENTON understated and hip, openkitchen-equipped dining room, Harvest exhibits extraordinary smarts and style. First of all, the building looks like an — and I never use this adjective — adorable brick cottage. Secondly, the non-pizza portion of the menu includes an engaging and non-cliche wine list; cocktails made with topnotch liquids; and excellently sourced, handmade appetizers and desserts. As a small plate, the WildCaught Galician Sardines ($8, but not on the menu the last time I went) ate like an elegant little salad. I loved its hefty hunks of white-fleshed and salmon-like fish, fresh fennel fronds, tender

lettuces and tongue-tinglingly citric dressing. But I had plenty more love to give when it came to the housemade Warm Ricotta ($8). Drizzled with balsamic vinegar plus lavender honey and brightened by lemon zest, this impressive, fresh-cheesy curd-fest tasted like the kind of Italian-style cheesecake you might eat in a real and real fancy Italian restaurant.

While far from bad, the House Chopped Salad ($9) suffered by comparison. Similarly, this colorful, crunchy and fun-to-munch ensemble had elements — salty and evanescent shaved ricotta salata curls and killer tomatoes from an owner’s Canal Winchester farm — that outclassed others (canned olives and chickpeas and iceberg lettuce). OK, those game-changing piz-

zas. I’ve eaten dozens of pizzas in Italy, where crust is king, and these Harvest pies are excitingly close to the real thing. They’re thin and delicate in the center but sexily puffy, charred and woodsmoke scented on their perfectly chewy edges. Yet whereas crusts and the (crushed-tomatolike) house sauce are classically Italian, toppings are up-to-theminute chic American. Here are a few highly recommended pies I tried. • Ohio Bacon ($14): Slightly sweet and salty, this beauty contained: Canadian-style bacon made with Ohio swine, milky fresh mozzerella, roasted red peppers and a garnish of superfresh marjoram. • Goat Cheese ($15): Thinly sliced sopressata (lusty salami), Ohio goat cheese, caramelized onions and lots of jammy oven-blistered tomatoes make this pizza soar.

Harvest Pizza Address: 495 S. 4th St., German Village Phone: (614) 824-1769 Web:

• Yuma ($13): This zesty, Southwestern model’s designed for spice lovers because its smoky chipotle-accented sauce strikes fire with jalapenos and clumps of chorizo; corn, havarti cheese and roasted red peppers tame the flames a bit. • Fennel Sausage ($15): Rich, sharp and bold with local gouda, smoked provolone, excellent sausage, onion and fennel pollen. Homemade desserts can wow too, such as the surprisingly fancy Butterscotch Budino ($6). Kinda like a dense pudding parfait with a lovely — and barely sweet — scorched sugar character, it has tart creme fraiche plus toasted hazelnuts and vanilla-scented Maldon sea salt for extra depth and texture.

Latest Bethel Road restaurant puts emphasis on sushi Yun Hui “Yumi” Wada wouldn’t put her new restaurant in just any area of town. But Northwest Side residents have shown their fondness for sushi and other Asian fare, so she’s comfortable opening her new, sophisticated Japanese restaurant in the busy Bethel Road corridor. “A lot of people here know how to eat sushi,” she said. And Wada will put their appetites to the test with her latest venue, Aoi, which opens Aug. 8 at 876-878 Bethel Road. On Wednesdays and Thursdays, the restaurant will offer all-you-can-eat sushi

— maki rolls, nigiri and sashimi — for $29. Aoi, meaning blue in Japanese, is a big-ticket venture that transformed the 5,000-square-foot space formerly occupied by Einstein Bros. Bagels and Boston Market, a move that required Wada had to get a rezoning for the property. The interior features two distinctive dining rooms. One is the bar area, with a granite bar that seats 15 and another 100 or so in a casual space that will offer TV sets, eight beers on draft and deejay-spun music seven days a week. The other room is a more formal dining area, with an extended blue granite sushi bar and also seating for 100. Indeed, the immediate area is flush with sushi options, including Akai Hana, Basho, Yoshi’s and Blue Ginger. Wada said the demand is obvious, so she’s not worried about saturation. She will have four sushi chefs so customers can avoid By Chris Parker/ThisWeek long waits.

Wada and her family are the operators of three successful restaurants: two Genji Japanese steakhouses and San-Su, a Korean barbecue that Wada opened earlier this year on Bethel Road.

Speaking of Bethel Road, Buckeye Pho Asian Restaurant is slated to open next month in the Olentangy Plaza. The owner is Max Tat, a Spagio and Molly Woo alumnus and classically trained chef. It will become one of three restaurants on Bethel that specialize in Pho, the Vietnamese noodle soup. The other two are Bamboo Café and Lac Viet. A key difference: Buckeye Pho also will offer a full Chinese menu. The restaurant is just around the corner from the new Five Guys Burgers and Fries.

Girls Basketball

Raiders shine in Under Armour event By KEN KITCHEN ThisWeek Community Newspapers The Reynoldsburg High School girls basketball team made a strong showing in a national tournament last week. The Raiders were one of 22 teams representing 11 states and Washington, D.C., to compete in the Under Armour Best of Maryland tournament July 26-28 at Damascus High School in suburban Baltimore. Reynoldsburg was one of four teams

from Ohio to participate, joining Shaker Heights Hathaway Brown, Twinsburg and Toledo Notre Dame. The Raiders went 5-2 in the tournament, advancing to the final, where they lost to La Jolla (Calif.) Country Day 4439 on July 28. “They (La Jolla) were good, every team was good,” coach Jack Purtell said. “It was great to compete at a national level, it was fun. A lot of college coaches were there and we got invited back to next year’s tournament.”

The Raiders defeated Louisville (Ky.) Sacred Heart Academy 40-27, lost to defending champion St. John’s College from Washington, D.C., 50-40, defeated Vienna (Va.) Oakton 49-43 and beat Severn (Md.) Archbishop Spalding 36-33 in preliminary play July 26-27. Reynoldsburg then played three games July 28, defeating St. Louis (Mo.) St. Joseph’s Academy 46-39 in a quarterfinal and Kensington (Md.) Academy of the Holy Cross 36-33 in a semifinal before losing to La Jolla.

“We had a rocky start, but jelled and came together that last day,” senior Aliyah Zantt said. “We were competing.” Assistant coaches Jen Clark and Tony Lucas and longtime team scorekeeper Gary West also made the trip. “Team after team was loaded with Division I recruits,” West said. “There were over 200 college coaches there watching and three or four of our girls did themselves big favors with their play in front of all of those coaches.” Reynoldsburg led La Jolla by three at halftime and by one with three min-

utes remaining. “They (La Jolla) were blowing teams out, winning games by 25 to 40 points,” West said. “They beat Twinsburg (the defending Division I state champion) by 12 points in the semifinals.” According to West, 21 of the teams participating in the tournament were ranked in the top 20 in their respective final state poll at the end of last season. Reynoldsburg finished 23-2 last seaSee RAIDERS, page B3


Athletes share thoughts, advice For more than a decade, I have had student-athletes write in this summer series and the three questions that I enjoy hearing their responses from the most are what advice they would give to younger students who are beginning their sport, who their heroes are and what their future plans are LARRY at this time of LARSON their life. The final three weeks of this summer’s columns deal with those topics, beginning with the one on advice. As young people grow, they are faced with decisions on activities they might want to try. Whether it’s music, science, art, drama, sports or any other extracurricular activity, I highly urge them to give things a chance and see if it is the right fit for them. Here are suggestions from student-athletes who are among the best in the area, if not the state, at their sport. Michela Paradiso, Upper Arlington, soccer and basketball: “I would encourage the need to make sure you take responsibility for yourself in the sport. You can’t blame other people, coaches, parents, referees or other players for your downfalls and losses. Remember that there is a lot of time to play soccer and you have to keep the passion alive and keep teammates as the most important thing.” Austin Cuervo, St. Charles, golf: “I would tell a young athlete in my sport to have a good head. Golf is just about the least amount of strokes, not what strokes may or may not look like.” Chase Delande, Hilliard Davidson, football and wrestling: “Work hard at your sport. When it gets really tough, fight through it and keep going.” Napoleon Bell, Hartley, football and wrestling: “You will experience failure and defeat. The key thing is this: If the endeavor was a defeat, it was also a learning experience. It does not make you a failure.” Jake Blankenship, Gahanna, pole vault: “No matter what happens, make sure you give it your all and don’t quit. Pole vaulting is not an easy sport, but when you become successful, you learn you can do anything.” Mary Wells, Westerville Central, bowling: “Try the sport because you like it and not because someone else wants you to try it. If you are not sure whether you will enjoy the activity, make sure you at least give it a try.” Faith Washington, Reynoldsburg, track: “I would tell a young person beginning running to stay hydrated and always, always listen to what your body is trying to tell you during your workouts.”

Group forms to build future Raiders By SCOTT HENNEN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Junior Raiders athletics director Chad Jenkins talks to his players at practice on Aug. 1.

Youth football in Reynoldsburg will have a new look this fall. The newly formed Junior Raiders will begin play Aug. 20 at Waggoner Road Junior High with a non-conference game against the Westland Cougars. The Junior Raiders will take over for Reynoldsburg Youth Football (RYF), which disbanded during the offseason. “It wasn’t a transformation (from RYF to Junior Raiders), we’re a separate entity,” said John Amburgey, a former RYF coach who is president of the Junior Raiders. “There was a group of people who wanted to have more of a travel select football league. We wanted to

set up sort of a feeder program for the junior high and high school. “We are going to keep the teams Raiders and keep the colors of the high school team. It was important to us for the kids to be Raiders and be proud of being Raiders when they get to junior high and high school.” Buddy White is entering his first season as football coach at Reynoldsburg High School. He said the high school program did not endorse any youth football program but was willing to help any program working with future Reynoldsburg football players. “When (a high school) gets a new coach and one (youth) league starts and another folds, some people get the perception See FOOTBALL, page B3

Top Individual Performances: No. 2

Warriors’ Wilson ran to glory at state in ’98 By JARROD ULREY ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Even before Ryan Wilson entered high school, his mother, Cynthia, got a glimpse of the kind of competitor who was emerging under her roof. “He might have been 12 or 13 years old, and he told me, ‘I’m going to go to the state track meet all four years in four events,” his mother said. “That’s exactly what he would do, and he scored in 14 of those 16 events.” Perhaps his greatest feat as a prep athlete occurred in the 1998 Division I state meet, as the Westerville North junior lived up to his own high expectations in many aspects, winning the long jump (23 feet, 1 inch) on the first day of competition and coming back on day two with titles in the 110meter hurdles (13.95 seconds) and 300 hurdles (37.1). Even with a weekend full of accomplishments, there was a disappointment that is just as memorable to Wilson: He had to settle for seventh place in the 200. See LARSON, page B3 Although athletes now receive two

points for finishing seventh and one point for eighth in an event, a different point system was in place at that time in which no points were given for seventh or eighth. The three titles he won that weekend gave North 30 points and a cochampionship in Division I with Brunswick. “The interesting thing is that what I remember most about it is the lesson I learned,” Wilson said. “The 200 was my last event and was definitely my weakest event. I had chosen to run the 200 instead of the (1,600 relay) that year and I remember I got seventh because I didn’t run all the way through the line. I remember when I watched the replay on the screen that someone was able to pass me right at the end. That extra point I didn’t get was what I remember the most because my team didn’t win the (outright championship).” Wilson’s performance in the 1998 By Mike Munden/The Columbus Dispatch state meet was part of one of the most remarkable prep careers of any cen- Ryan Wilson won three events — the long jump, 100-meter hurdles and 300 hurdles — in the 1998 Division I state meet, scoring all of Westerville North’s points to secure a share tral Ohio track athlete.

On the way to its first losing season in 12 years last fall, an already young and undersized Ready High School football team was hindered further when it lost an expected two-way starter to a broken leg. The fact that Christian Knapper went down on the second play of the Silver Knights’ final preseason scrimmage to end his senior season virtually before it started was all the more painful. The 2011 preseason gets under way Tuesday, Aug. 9, with a series of matchups that includes Grove City traveling to Upper Arlington and Gahanna playing host to Olentangy Liberty. From Aug. 9-20, coaches and players will compete in various scrimmages throughout central Ohio in preparation for the coming season. They’ll be crossing their fingers that they won’t face a similar situation to what the Silver Knights and Knapper did last fall. “Injuries like that usually are freak accidents where somebody twists somebody or gets pretzeled underneath a pile,” Ready coach Larry Wolf said. “(Knapper’s injury was) where the kid tried to stop and cut. Most of the time freak injuries are a total accident where there’s no rhyme or reason to them. Our kids are well-conditioned and wellprepared and we just tell them to go out and play hard.” After three seasons in which his team stayed mostly healthy over the course of each season, DeSales coach Ryan Wiggins watched last year as several

WILSON Continued from page B1 In 1996 as a freshman at Columbus Academy, he took second in the long jump, was fifth in the 110 hurdles and ran the anchor leg of the winning 1,600 relay in the Division III state meet. That performance followed a boys soccer season in which he helped the Vikings win the 1995 Division II state title. Wilson transferred to Westerville North midway through his sophomore season and immediately became a standout at the Division I track level. In the 1997 state meet, he took fourth in the long jump, fourth in the 110 hurdles and fourth in the 300 hurdles and helped the 1,600 relay finish third. In 1998, during the final state track meet held at Ohio Stadium, he was one of five North athletes competing but the only one who scored. The 3,200 relay of Nathan Aichele, Jared Conley, Jason Conley and Tyler Pensyl also represented the Warriors but didn’t place. In 1999 at Welcome Stadium in Dayton, Wilson defended his titles in the 110 hurdles (13.7) and 300 hurdles (36.46) and finished third in the long jump (23-7 1/4). He also competed in the 1,600 relay that failed to place. “It was amazing, watching Ryan perform the way that he did,” said Pensyl, who went on to run for Denison University and has been working for the law firm of Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease as an associate for five years. “He rose to the occasion. We only lost one meet all year, and we had a number of outstanding individuals. It really felt like a team championship and I thought it was a reflection of everything that we did that year.” According to Bob Cavin, who was North’s coach in 1998 and currently serves as an assistant football and track coach at New Albany, a now-famous T-shirt was produced after the first day of the state meet. On the front, the shirt read, “Get outta my way. I’m on Ryan Wilson’s team.” On the back, it read, “I made it to the state meet, too.” “It was a great team accomplishment and Ryan was just the leader,” Cavin said. “For Ryan to score all of our points, that was just the icing on the cake.” “Even though I happened to score all of the points, that was one of the best teams we’ve ever had,” Wilson said. “Even though it’s an individual sport, I still have a lot of friends from that team. That was the last meet in ‘The Horseshoe,’and I’m really proud I was able to be a part of people sending the track out in style.” Wilson comes from a family of track athletes. His brother, Glen, was a three-time state meet com-

Cross said. “This gives us a chance to have the defense see more passing, and we’ll mix in a few draw plays.” While some teams prefer to play a neighborhood school that could bring unique intensity during their scrimmage opener, others will enter their first scrimmage with an eye on keeping it simple. Perennial playoff contender Eastmoor Academy and defending Division IV state champion Hartley will meet in the opening scrimmage for both teams Aug. 13 at Hartley. The matchup of East-side schools is one that Warriors coach Jim Miranda looks forward to because of the toughness that his team will get to face as it prepares for the coming season. “Hartley’s got a good, sound program with well-coached kids,” Miranda said. “(Hawks coach Brad Burchfield) enjoys the team speed we have. For us, they have a quick-paced offensive set and disciplined kids, so it makes us have to play sound.” DeSales plays at Westerville South on Aug. 13 in what Wiggins calls a “controlled” scrimmage. It then plays host to Upper Arlington on Aug. 19. “The first scrimmage is against somebody other than ourselves and it’s when you’re going to see real speed for the first time,” Wiggins said. “We know we’re going to see kids with good size and good athleticism, and we’re looking to see how physical we are and how well we’ve learned our assignments.”

key regular-season injuries, including one to running back Warren Ball that lingered much of the fall, hindered his team’s success. Like Wolf, however, Wiggins isn’t planning to keep his players from giving their best effort just to try to keep them from getting injured, and that includes when they’re competing in a preseason scrimmage. “It’s a delicate balance,” Wiggins said. “It always bothers me when a kid gets hurt in practice, but you’ve got to prepare physically. You’re trying to be smart when it’s your own guys, but when you play a different-colored jersey, you’ve just got to play. Usually when injuries occur they are freak things

and you can’t worry about them.” Most of central Ohio’s teams are competing in two scrimmages, although a few will play two scrimmages from Aug. 9-16 and a third that the OHSAA deems a “jamboree” scrimmage from Aug. 18-20. Because the OHSAA requires all schools to pay $250 to its Catastrophic Insurance Fund if they choose to compete in a third preseason game, schools may charge admission to the jamboree. Olentangy Orange opens its scrimmage schedule Aug. 13 against visiting Kings Mills Kings and plays host to Westland on Aug. 16 before playing host to Reynoldsburg on Aug. 19 in a

jamboree. According to Pioneers coach Brian Cross, the scrimmage against Westland will be a “passing scrimmage.” Although both teams will have 11 players on the field unlike in the 7-on7 passing tournaments during the summer, at least seven of every 11 plays will be passes. Cross considers it to be a sign of the times as teams continue to develop more complex passing offenses. Westland’s new coach, Steve White, was an assistant under Cross when the two were on the same coaching staff at Grove City. “I don’t know what other people are doing, but having two scrimmages when we tackle and run the ball is enough,”

Counting down to No. 1 ThisWeek Community Newspapers has been around for 22 years. That timeframe was used as the basis to compile a top-10 list of the top individual performances we’ve covered. Along with the experienced sports staff at ThisWeek and Steve Blackledge, high school reporter at The Columbus Dispatch, we arrived at a top-10 list. Below are Nos. 3-10. Check back next week for No. 1 and let us know your thoughts at

NOS. 3-10: 10. MAURICE HALL, Brookhaven football (Oct. 27, 2000) — During a season in which he rushed for 3,057 yards to rank fifth on Ohio’s all-time list, Hall’s most memorable individual performance came during the final week of the regular season. The Bearcats beat Briggs 75-16 as Hall rushed for 411 yards and eight touchdowns on 19 carries. 9. LATOYA TURNER, Pickerington girls basketball (March 19, 1999) — The 6-foot-4 senior helped the Tigers advance to the Division I state final with her 29-point performance in a 51-35 win over Wadsworth. The Ohio State recruit made 12 of 14 shots from the floor and was 5-for-6 from the free-throw line while adding five rebounds, four steals and two assists. 8. DARCY FISHBACK, Upper Arlington girls swimming (Feb. 27-28, 2009) — During preliminaries Feb. 27, Fishback broke the state record in the 100-yard butterfly when she finished in 53.38 seconds. She won her fourth state title in the event the next day in 54.17 seconds. Fishback also swam on two state-record relays: the 200 medley (1:43.59) and the 200 freestyle (1:34.24). 7. CHARLES JOHNSON, Watkins Memorial boys basketball (Feb. 24, 1995) — There have been few more surprising performances than what this 5-8 senior guard accomplished in leading the Warriors to a 93-87 overtime upset of second-seeded and state-ranked London in the second round of the Division II district tournament. Watkins Memorial was just 1-19 entering the matchup but got 57

petitor for Academy who later competed in track for Yale. His mother coached track in the 1980s and early 1990s, making stops at Columbus Central, Centennial and Academy, and remains a teacher at Academy. After Wilson graduated from North, he competed for the University of Southern California, winning an NCAA title in the 110 hurdles in 2003. He also was the bronze medalist in the IAFF World Athletics Final in 2008. Wilson has been a professional track athlete since 2004. In the USATF Outdoor Nationals on June 25 in Eugene, Ore., he finished 16th (13.52) in the semifinals of the 110 hurdles senior race as the top eight advanced to the final. He then traveled to Europe to compete in meets in Switzerland and France in July. He also was expected to travel to Sweden for a meet in late July. Now 30 years old, Wilson expects to continue competing professionally for at least two years and possibly as many as six. He has lived in Los Angeles since 1999. “It’s a lot of fun to compete in

points from Johnson, who made 19 of 34 from floor, including eight 3-pointers, and was 11-for-15 from the freethrow line. He added eight rebounds, six steals and five assists. 6. KHALILAH CARPENTER, Brookhaven girls track and field (June 2-3, 2000) — At the 2000 Division I state meet, the junior broke the meet and state records in the 100 meters with a time of 11.59 seconds on June 2. The next day, she won the 100 in 11.71 and the 200 title in 23.69, a time that lowered the state mark she already held. 5. JEFF BACKES, Upper Arlington football (Dec. 2, 2000) — In leading the Golden Bears to the Division I state title, the 5-9, 180-pound senior turned in a performance worthy of the Ohio Mr. Football award that he had received days earlier. Backes rushed for 183 yards and two touchdowns on 32 carries and preserved a 159 victory over Solon at Fawcett Stadium in Canton with an interception with less than a minute remaining. 4. COURTNEY SMITH, Hilliard Davidson softball (May 17 and 19, 2006) — Smith brought to a close what remains the longest OHSAA softball tournament game, hitting a grand slam in the bottom of the 22nd inning for a 4-1 victory over Olentangy Liberty and a Division I district championship for the Wildcats. It was Smith’s first career home run. She also stood out in the circle, striking out 29 while pitching a complete game. She didn’t allow a run until the top of the 22nd. 3. GREG AVERY, Newark boys basketball (March 15, 2008) — Avery led the Wildcats to a 65-52 victory over Lakewood St. Edward in the Division I state championship game. The 6-3 senior forward tied his career high of 33 points on 14 of 18 shooting and added 11 rebounds, three assists and four steals as the Wildcats captured their first state title since 1943. Avery made third-team all-state his senior season as he averaged 18.9 points, 8.6 rebounds and 4.2 assists. He became the sixth player in program history to score more than 1,000 points, finishing with 1,131 career points.

Europe,” he said. “It’s always nice to know that there’s a knowledgeable fan base over there that really appreciates you. It’s refreshing. I definitely feel fortunate to be able to travel like this, and I’m trying to enjoy the parts that I can. Not a lot of people are able to see the world like I have.” Although he’s competed in track meets in front of as many as 75,000 fans in Europe, the sheer magnitude of winning three state titles is something Cynthia Wilson believes will live on in the memories of track fans throughout Ohio. “The further you get away from it, the more you realize what a big deal it was, especially since it was in Division I,” she said. “It was the last time the meet was held at Ohio State, so that was fun, too. He’s always set all of these goals for himself and some of those goals have eluded him, but he’s been able to run at the highest levels. He loves the hurdles and he really loved Westerville North and loved coach Cavin and the support from the community.”

RAIDERS cause we all played well and we played well as a team and played unselfishly.” Aside from playing top competition, Purtell said there were other benefits from playing in the tournament. “It was a great chance to do some team building and be together, and it was great exposure for our players, especially our two seniors,” he said. “They got many chances to showcase their talents.” Aideyman said the Raiders showed why it is important to play as a team. “It’s not always just skill, but if you come together as a team and play hard,” she said. “There were some teams that had great players and stars, but they played selfish and they didn’t win.” Zantt said the Raiders can build on the trip to Maryland. “We know we can add on to what we did there,” she said. “We know that if we keep pushing and keep doing what we are doing as a team we can come back and have a great season.” Reynoldsburg opens the coming season at Toledo Notre Dame.

Junior Raiders coach Perry Brown (center) leads the team in stretching exercises before practice.

FOOTBALL said Jenkins, who coached with RYF the past four seasons. “In Pataskala when you are growing up, they are either Black Warriors or Gold Warriors. We want our kids to be Raiders.” The RYF had 20 total teams in three divisions — ages 5-7 (6 teams), ages 8-10 (8 teams) and ages 11-13 (6 teams) — last year. The teams were named after NFL franchises. Amburgey said the Junior Raiders program received its not-for-profit organization papers on March 1 and that the group’s website,, was “still in its infancy stage.” Even though the program is not affiliated with the high school, he said the Junior Raiders will use the high school stadium upon availability. Delayed because of the stadium construction, the first games at the high school will be Sept. 3. Amburgey added that the Junior Raiders not only will be teaching the kids football, but life lessons as well. “The thing of it is, we’re not using the same playbook (as the high school program) or call the same offensive and defensive plays,” he said. “But we want to make sure the fundamentals will be there. Our goal is to have these kids actually prepared to be good students and good kids who stay out of trouble. We want to show them the fundamentals and formations of plays, but we also want to show them a little of how life works. That’s the important thing.”

Hopefully the answer to these two questions is always yes.” Jimmy Gammill, New Albany, football: “As a young athlete, you need to work hard athletically and academically. You are only going to be as good as you want to be.” Next week the student-athletes tell us who their hero or best role model is. I’ll see you at a game.

that I had something to do with it, but that’s not true,” White said. “Some people feel we created the Junior Raiders, which also is not true. They were a break-off group of parents from RYF who asked to use our facilities and we told them that they could use the facilities upon availability. That’s what we do for any youth group with future Reynoldsburg Raiders.” White said RYF members were not pleased that he was helping the new organization or that the high school stadium was not available for RYF’s John Bowie football camp in June. “We are having work done on the (high school football) stadium and we offered the use of Waggoner Road Junior High,” White said. “We didn’t want the kids running around (the high school field) with all of the big construction equipment in use there. Next year, the construction will be done and we expect the stadium to be busy again throughout the spring and summer.” RYF officials did not return numerous calls seeking comment. Junior Raiders athletics director Chad Jenkins said the program will have three divisions with a total of five teams this fall. There will be one team in the kindergarten to second grade division and two in both the grades 3-4 and grades 5-6 divisions. Each team will wear purple or white. Reynoldsburg High School’s primary colors are purple and gold. “This is a similar system that they have at Teays Valley, Central Crossing and Watkins Memorial,”

son and won a Division I district title for the second season in a row. The Raiders, who won the OCC-Ohio Division title by going 14-0 in league play, lost to Liberty Township Lakota East 4644 in a regional semifinal. They were ranked fifth in the final state poll. The Raiders expect to return four starters in junior Destini Cooper, junior Yamonie Jenkins, junior Shiloh Murphy and sophomore Alyssa Rice as well as Zantt and senior Adesuwa Aideyman. Zantt was the team’s leading scorer last season coming off the bench, averaging 13.1 points. Aideyman averaged 6.9 points off the bench. Junior Jodeci Acosta-Gorman and sophomore Shanice Johnson also played in the Best of Maryland tournament. Murphy was not able to play because of an elbow injury that she sustained earlier in July while playing in an AAU tournament in Washington, D.C. “It was a great opportunity, there were over 200 (college) coaches there,” Aideyman said. “Even with AAU games, only a certain amount of (college) coaches can watch. It was great be-
