Finance committee

Joseph: Take more time to discuss budget By DAVID S. OWEN ThisWeek Community Newspapers Councilman Doug Joseph said Monday city officials should take more time to discuss budget issues rather than rush to place a 1-percent income tax increase on the November ballot, as recommended by an ad hoc committee. Joseph, as chairman, scheduled a special finance committee meeting for 6:30 p.m. Monday, July 25, to discuss the matter further.

Based on state budget information, the five-member ad hoc committee recommended reduced expenditures and an income tax increase as ways for Reynoldsburg to cover the projected loss of $1.7 million over the next four years. During the July 18 finance committee meeting, Mayor Brad McCloud agreed that the issue deserves more study. Council President Bill Hills said he supports a November ballot request and Councilman Mel Clemens advised everyone to consider the needs of the

city and “take the politics out of this.” Joseph said some things the ad hoc committee recommended, such as raising city service fees and cutting employee benefits, should be examined. However, he said, it is too soon to ask for an income tax increase without further discussion and input from the community. “I think the report they came up with had a lot of good ideas in it,” he said. “Some of the ideas have been kicked around for awhile; other issues I think perhaps may be something that we

should take a look at, but we don’t want to rush into.” He said two attempts to get a tax increase approved failed in 2006. Council would have to decide by July 25 — the last scheduled meeting before its August recess — whether to go ahead with a tax request in order to meet the Aug. 10 deadline to file documents with the Franklin County Board of Elections to place an issue on the Nov. 8 ballot. “It doesn’t give the community enough time for input and it doesn’t give coun-

cil and the city enough time to look at other reforms of cuts and exactly what we need to generate the dollars we need,” Joseph said. “I will not be supporting an income tax increase.” The ad hoc committee reported to council on July 11 there are two ways to increase taxes. One is to increase the rate charged; the second is to reduce the 100percent tax credit Reynoldsburg offers residents who work outside city limits. See FINANCE COMMITTEE, page A5

Kelly leaving district for Westerville schools post eSTEM Academy leader will be Walnut Springs Middle School principal By DAVID S. OWEN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

‘Out-of-control’ hobby resulted in car show By DAVID S. OWEN ThisWeek Community Newspapers Reynoldsburg resident Ray Gosnell gives little, if any, public notice about the annual car show he’s hosted for the past 33 years. He doesn’t have to. Aside from sending flyers to people who have visited in the past, word-of-mouth advertising is enough to attract more than 450 vintage, restored and modified vehicles and at least 1,000 people to his 30-acre property off Taylor Road for the show. Each summer since 1978, Gosnell has hosted a free car show on his property; this year’s event was held July 17. In the past, the day usually included a potluck picnic, but since the event has grown in popularity, he said he decided just to have the car show this year. “We had 1,000 people go through here last year, just for the picnic alone, so this was the first year we didn’t have the potluck. It got so big, we couldn’t manage it,” Gosnell said.

Reynoldsburg eSTEM Academy leader Leslie Kelly is leaving the school district to become principal of Walnut Springs Middle School in Westerville, effective Aug 1. The Westerville Board of Education approved hiring Kelly on July 11. She will be paid a base salary of $91,000, about $3,700 more than she is earning in Reynoldsburg. Kelly has been with Reynoldsburg schools for the past 11 years and was one of the coordinators responsible for launching the district’s STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) initiative. She also is a member of Reynoldsburg City Council; she is uncontested in her bid for a second term in the Nov. 8 election. Although Westerville is explorLeslie Kelly ing STEM opportunities for the future, Kelly said being principal at Walnut Springs Middle School, which has a student enrollment of 850, is a challenge she is looking forward to. “I’m really pleased to be able to go from a district that is my home to another district where every single person I have come in contact with has just been so incredibly nice and welcoming,” Kelly said. “I am very blessed to go from a great situation to another great situation.” Kelly said the opportunity in Westerville will provide her with new challenges.

47th Tomato Festival will feature free admission

See CAR SHOW, page A7

Teacher resigns amid harassment investigation

By DAVID S. OWEN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

By CHARLIE BOSS The Columbus Dispatch

There will be no admission charge for this year’s Reynoldsburg Tomato Festival, scheduled for Aug. 19-20 at Huber Park. Mary Hudson, president of Reynoldsburg Tomato Festivals Inc., said organizers were considering an admission charge of between $1 and $3, but ultimately decided against it since the organization is financially sustainable for this year. “We were really looking for future sustainability … we’ll make up our revenue in other ways,” Hudson said. “We’re getting most of our sponsors back this year.”

A former president of the Reynoldsburg teachers’ union resigned July 18 as officials were investigating a complaint that he harassed a student. The Reynoldsburg Board of Education met in emergency session Monday to accept the resignation of Waggoner Road Junior High School teacher David North. North was president of the Reynoldsburg Education Associa-

tion in 2009. He has taught seventh- and eighth-grade language arts for the past six years. North, 32, did not return a call seeking comment. District officials launched their investigation in early June, shortly after school ended for the year, after a parent said North’s repeated reprimands of her 14-year-old son were akin to bullying. District spokesperson Tricia Moore said the district is not releasing the name of the parent or the student.

In a letter to Superintendent Steve Dackin, the parent said her son felt that “he didn’t seem to be able to do anything without Mr. North reprimanding or disciplining him.” As part of the disciplinary actions, she wrote, North yelled at her son, had him sit in the hallway during class, sent him to the office and to detention. She said she and her husband met with North and an assistant principal to discuss the situation, and North said he thought her son was disrespectful but didn’t provide specifics.

Both parties agreed to a “fresh start,” but it lasted only weeks before her son started receiving new reprimands, the mother said. “It seemed as if there was at least one incident daily,” she wrote. The disciplinary actions continued when her son was removed from North’s class, including an incident on the last day of school when North allegedly “chest bumped” her son and yelled at him to take off a hat.

TOMATO FESTIVAL Continued from page A1 She said festival organizers have chosen longtime Reynoldsburg residents Jim and Muriel Patrick to be the 2011 Senior Tomato King and Queen. “They are incredibly involved in the community and for years, Muriel was the one who in charge of the tomato queens, so she knows queens from at least 30 years ago,� Hudson said. She said nominations are still being accepted through Aug. 7 for this year’s queens pageant. All nominees must be 16 years old by Aug. 19, a high school junior or senior in the 2011-2012 school year and must reside with a parent or guardian in the Reynoldsburg school district. Once a queen is elected, she gets to travels to fairs and festivals throughout central Ohio, representing Reynoldsburg and promoting the Tomato Festival, Hudson said. Nominations must include the nominee’s name, address, telephone number, email address, date of birth and school. Con-

TEACHER Continued from page A1 She wrote that another teacher contacted her last month, saying she was aware North was mistreating her son but remained silent out of fear of retribution. Moore said the district’s attorney is close to completing the investigation and will share findings with the Ohio Department of Education as required by law.

testants will be required to attend a meeting on Aug. 8 to review the contest and program expectations. Nomination forms are available at www.ReynoldsburgTomatoFestival.org and must be emailed to Robin Baker at tomato.royalty@att.net, or mailed/delivered to Michael Motz at 1819 Chimney Hill Court, Reynoldsburg, Ohio, 43068 on or before Aug. 7. Hudson said the Mount Carmel Fitness Challenge will begin at 8 a.m. Saturday morning, Aug. 20, in front of the municipal building. Three events are part of this year’s Fitness Challenge: the Crossroads Town 10K Walk/Run, the Tomato Town 5K Walk/Run and the Raider Roll In-line Half Marathon. Following the Fitness Challenge, a pancake breakfast fundraiser for the Reynoldsburg Kiwanis Club will be served at the Reynoldsburg Senior Center in Huber Park beginning at 9 a.m. Hudson said Tomato Festival entertainment this year will feature performances on the deck at the senior center and on a second stage in the park. The local rock band DDouble VVision will perform on the main stage beginning at 7 p.m. Aug. 19, followed at 8 p.m. by Reynoldsburg native Ashley Everts and The Country Thunder. On Aug. 20, the rock band Peligro will perform at 7 p.m., followed by the Ohio-based

National Night Out kickoff set for July 23 The city of Columbus and communities on the far east side will sponsor a National Night Out Kickoff from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, July 23, at the Far East Recreation Center, 1826 Lattimer Drive.

The event is free, but 100 percent of raffle funds and donations will benefit the Officer Hurst Memorial Monument. The community is invited to enjoy barbecued pork, hot dogs, ice cream and prizes.

board for the JEDZ, the township idential development. This is done

Introducing

ThisWeek Community Newspapers Joint Economic Development to ensure that the terms of the

Etna Township trustees continued their series of Saturday morning meetings July 16, serving coffee and doughnuts to a dozen or so people who find the weekend meetings easier to attend than the usual Tuesday evening sessions. Among the topics addressed were an effort to stimulate Licking County commissioners to recalculate the distribution of stateprovided, local government funds to Etna Township and 40 other local jurisdictions, the possibility of contracting with the Licking County Sheriff’s Office for a dedicated sheriff’s patrol in the township, and the appointment of two members to a Reynoldsburg tax incentive review council (TIRC). Township resident Mark Schaff was appointed to the TIRC, along with Richard Knapp. Schaff currently sits on a Licking County TIRC, while Knapp sits on the

Zone. The Reynoldsburg TIRC is expected to meet Aug. 3. “I assume the Reynoldsburg panel is similar to the Licking County panel,” Schaff said. “The council meets once a year to review tax abatement decisions to help businesses. Most recently, the decisions are tied to helping businesses weather the recession.” Township trustee John Carlisle said Etna’s interest in the Reynoldsburg TIRC had been forgotten in the change of administrations. “I was not aware we had members who sat on the tax incentive review council in Reynoldsburg,” Carlisle said. “Our two appointees who were on the board, Neil Ingle and Paul George, are both deceased.” Tax incentive review councils meet annually to review the terms of various abatements and incentives granted to business and res-

Page A3

agreements are being met. Incentives may include property tax abatements in community reinvestment areas, which have been designated for redevelopment, and for tax increment financing, in which property taxes continue to be collected on developed property, but any additional revenue resulting from an increase in property values is diverted toward paying for infrastructure for the development, such as roadways. Carlisle said he selected Knapp and Schaff because of their experience in similar township bodies, the JEDZ and the county TIRC. Schaff also is a member of the township economic development committee. “Any time I get an invitation, I’m always pleased to accept,” Schaff said. “I really like local government. It’s accessible to everybody.”

KELLY LEAVING Continued from page A1 “Westerville is a great school district, and a district that is diverse and has a community that is involved, and that is something that I look for,” she said. Reynoldsburg Superintendent Steve Dackin agreed and said Kelly’s move to the larger Westerville district will offer her more opportunity for advancement. He said he has always encouraged his administrators to take care of their personal and professional needs and although it is a loss for Reynoldsburg schools, he is happy for Kelly. “We simply don’t have a number of the central office positions that Westerville will have and I know Leslie was thinking about her long-term opportunities, not just the principalship but what happens after she’s ready to move on,” Dackin said. “She wanted to be in a position to do that and Westerville is an outstanding school district. “I have a lot of regard for Leslie

and the work she has done for this district over the years. I wish her and family well; she’s a good person and we’ll miss her as an employee,” he said. Kelly, 38, is a native of Medina, Ohio. She earned a bachelor of arts degree in education-biology from Ohio Northern University in 1995 and a master of arts degree in education policy and leadership from The Ohio State University in 1998. She also is an adjunct professor at Ashland University and is a member of the STEM-based precollege summer bridge program design committee with Ohio Dominican University. Before coming to Reynoldsburg schools 11 years ago, Kelly was employed in the Columbus school district, where she was an eighth-grade science teacher at Johnson Park Middle School and assistant principal at Arts Impact Middle School. “I really truly enjoy making a difference in the lives of kids,” she said. “In education, it’s a special

privilege when you make an impact on a kid that’s going to be a lasting impact. Knowledge is something someone can’t steal from you.” Kelly said her decision to leave Reynoldsburg was a difficult one. “We have achieved some incredible things at eSTEM this year. I could not have asked for a better year — the staff, the students. I’ve been here a long time at Reynoldsburg and was a difficult decision,” Kelly said. “When you look at when is the right time to leave, there’s never the perfect time … I believe the best time to leave is when you’re part of creating a program that is strong and can stand on its own. “When you leave when a program is falling apart, that’s when you’re running from something, and I don’t run. We’ve created a program that is strong,” she said. She and her family —husband, Ryan and their two children, Ryan Jr. and Caroline, will continue to live in Reynoldsburg, giving her “the best of both worlds,” she said.

To the editor: The Reynoldsburg Board of Education recently approved a $25,000 pay raise for Superintendent Steve Dackin. Board member Andy Swope reported that Dackin has “led the district to a report card with every indicator met ...”’ Unless Dackin has been in each classroom teaching the skills, knowledge and standards first hand to the students, it is the teachers of the Reynoldsburg School District who should be credited for the achievement of the indicators that have been met. I am inclined to believe that my daughters’recent OAA scores, which placed her in the advanced category, are a direct result of the impeccable instruction of her K3 grade teachers ... not Dackin. It appears that Dackin is reaping the reward of the strong educational instruction that the teachers of Reynoldsburg are providing to the students of this community. The teachers’ commitment to educational success and achievement has never wavered even when working with reduced building budgets, increases in class size, a two-year pay freeze and teacher layoffs. I hope the school board’s admiration for Dackin’s success is mirrored in the new contract that is currently being negotiated so

that the teachers can experience tributors whose generosity supthe same level of appreciation ported this event. They include Central Ohio that has been given to Dackin.

Letters

To the editor: On the night of Red, White and Boom I lost my new iPhone. It was returned to me that night by several young ladies living in Reynoldsburg. They refused a monetary reward, saying that the phone was mine, I would like to thank these young women who chose to do the right thing and return my phone rather than selling it on the Internet. With everything we hear and read today, it is hard to imagine that there really are good people still in our communities. I hope your parents are proud of you because I certainly am. Thank you so much for restoring my faith in today’s youth.

FINANCE COMMITTEE Continued from page A1 Committee members said a tax increase is preferable because it has the least amount of impact on residents. Chairman Brad Sprague said if the city were to seek an income tax rate increase and would offer a 100-percent credit for what’s earned working in other communities, Reynoldsburg residents would not end up paying more income taxes. Sprague said non-residents who work in the city would shoulder a large portion of the tax increase. McCloud agreed during the July 18 finance committee meeting that the issue needs further exploration. “We have a hard, cold, financial reality imposed upon us by the governor’s recent budget … so there are some difficult decisions to be made,” McCloud said. He said he will continue to use available money as efficiently as possible, but it’s “probably very unrealistic” to think there will be no loss of services “in the very near future.” City auditor Richard Harris said over the last 20 years, Reynoldsburg has not been guilty of excessive expenditures. He said he agrees with many things the ad hoc committee recommended. “Council will have some tough decisions to make with this and we’ll certainly do whatever we can to aid council in finding a solution that’s workable for everybody,” Harris said. “I’m not advocating an income tax increase or anything else. I’m advocating we need to find a solution to the

problem, and the problem is not going to go away.” City attorney Jed Hood said solving the problem cannot be delayed much longer. Unfortunately, he said, none of the options being presented to council are very good. “If we push off too far, we’ll just exacerbate the problem,” he said. Clemens said looking at increasing city service fees would be good idea, but his big concern is improving city streets, and without more revenue, something needs to be done. He said residents “have the right to vote on this issue … to either pass it so we have an increase … or defeat it,” Clemens said. “You should take the politics out of this and put the city ahead of everything for once,” he said. Hills said a request for an income tax increase should be placed on the November ballot. “I think the thing we have to look forward to is how do we best to protect the public, and you best protect the public by getting a tax increase on the ballot as soon as possible,” Hills said. Considering the Aug. 10 deadline, Councilman Chris Long suggested a May ballot request might be better than one in November. “Over the last year and a half, we have debated other issues that are trivial compared to this and its importance and meaning to the citizens of Reynoldsburg,” Long said. “Here they are, asking us to shove this through … I don’t know that I can support presenting something on the November ballot.”

Still, a lot of people brought their own picnics to the event last Sunday, enjoying the afternoon and sharing stories with others. Gosnell, 72, grew up in Adena, Ohio, and said he has been interested in vintage cars, trucks and tractors all of his life. “My dad was in the trucking business in eastern Ohio in the coal industry and I grew up around mechanical things and just seemed to always have a knack for it,” Gosnell said. “I also had an uncle who had a garage and he taught me how to weld and paint.” While attending Muskingum College, Gosnell gained further experience working as a truck mechanic but eventually went on to have a successful career in medical laboratory sales, retiring in 1995. “That was a coat-and-tie kind of job, a lot of stress, and I’d come home at night, take my coat and tie off and put on grubbies and come out here and weld and paint, fabricate and build,” he said. Over the years, Gosnell has collected a fleet of cars, trucks and tractors, that he has either completely restored or made into streetrods. His 30-acres include several acres of open field, a fishing pond and three well-kept garages where he stores vintage vehicles and other collectibles, all protected by a security system than includes several cameras. “My wife (Janet) says it’s a hobby totally out of control,” Gosnell said. He said his favorite car is a 1932 Ford, one of many he has restored over the years. Gosnell said the car show began when he and about 20 friends decided to bring their modified or restored vehicles together at his place and have a picnic.

Updated daily, ThisWeekNews.com is your source for local breaking news and sports information.

Jerry Buty (left), of Gahanna, and Dave Hartley, of Reynoldsburg, look at a 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air at Ray Gosnell’s annual car show July 17 at his home in Reynoldsburg.

“We call it a car show, but it’s really not. My whole reason for doing this is to get people back to reality and quit thinking about showing and trying to win trophies and stuff like that,” he said. Besides having a garage to accommodate the fleet of cars and trucks he has restored or modified, Gosnell also has acquired a large number of antique collectible items, including an array of vintage service station signs and advertisements of all sizes, most in mint condition, dating back 40 or 50 years and beyond. He also has a cigarette machine dating back to 1957, a 1909 cash register, a 1959juke box and old-fashioned ice-coolers with the Coca-Cola logo on them. He recently acquired a vintage wooden menu board, circa 1940s or ’50s, from what used to be the Reynoldsburg Bowling Alley. The price of toast and cof-

fee is listed at 20 cents. Gosnell restored the front façade of one of his garages to represent a Sohio service station, circa 1939, including gas pumps from that period. “I had a very successful 30year sales career,” he said. “In order to be a successful salesperson, it requires a lot of selfdiscipline and good positive attitude and a ‘can-do’ spirit, which carried over to other ways of my life. “I really think we’re all capable of doing anything we put our mind to. It’s just a matter of doing it, a little bit of work — that’s no big deal. People sit around waiting for their ship to come in, and one of my favorite sayings is, ‘if your ship doesn’t come in, swim out to meet it.’” dowen@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekNews.com

Pediatric HealthSource

Abdominal pain is not uncommon Recurrent abdominal pain is very prevalent in children and adolescents, making it one of the most common reasons children are referred to a pediatric gastroenterologist, a doctor who treats problems with the digestive tract and liver. One common functional disorder that causes abdominal pain in children is irritable bowel syndrome. IBS is a gastrointestinal disorder that manifests itself as recurrent abdominal pain associated with changes in bowel movements. Children with IBS may have diarrhea, constipation or both. A typical symptom is bellyache around the belly button that usually goes away or gets better after a bowel movement. Between bellyaches, the child feels fine. The exact cause of IBS is unknown, but it is believed to be due to hypersensitive nerve cells that reside in the intestines and send messages to the brain. Stress, certain types of foods such as spicy or greasy foods, caffeine, chocolate or milk have been known to trigger IBS symptoms. Physical and emotional trauma can also play a role in the development of IBS.

Page A9

Some children with IBS tend to be more sensitive to stressful situations such as family conflict, moving, taking tests and issues with peers. Sometimes, triggers DESALEGN are never identified. Though IBS generally YACOB doesn’t lead to serious health problems, it may affect school attendance and daily function. It is important to consult your primary care physician to address the problem and rule out other reasons why your child may be having abdominal pain. Functional dyspepsia (indigestion) is another common functional disorder. Symptoms include nausea, vomiting, burping, decreased appetite, stomach pain and/or bloating. It is not associated with bowel movement changes. Indigestion usually happens infrequently, but be sure to monitor symptoms regularly and consult your primary physician with concerns. Some other gastrointestinal problems

that may cause recurrent abdominal pain are Celiac disease, gastritis and lactose intolerance. Your doctor will decide what labs and tests need to be done, based on the symptoms and physical exam. More serious diseases such as appendicitis, Crohn’s disease, inflammation of the pancreas, stomach ulcers and intestinal blockage will typically cause sudden and persistent pain with other associated symptoms such as severe vomiting, fever, bloody stools or significant weight loss. Diagnosis of any functional gastrointestinal disorder is based on a thorough history and physical exam, along with a few basic lab tests. Treatment may involve dietary and lifestyle changes and/or medication. Consult your primary care physician if you suspect your child may be suffering from any of these disorders. Dr. Desalegn Yacob is an attending physician in the Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and an assistant professor of Clinical Pediatrics at The Ohio State University College of Medicine.

COLLEGE STUDENT TEST SCORES It seems that a significant number of college students are paying a price for pumping up the volume of their MP3 players, according to a small sampling of college students with an average age of 21. One interesting aspect of the study was that all of the students were asked to assess their own hearing before undergoing the hearing test. One quarter of the students who professed to have normal hearing did not. This finding shows that a self-assessment is not a reliable indicator of actual hearing loss. Furthermore, while the degree of hearing loss among most of the students was generally not enough to warrant the use of a hearing instrument, it seems only a matter of time. Regularly listening to personal music players at high-volume setting. when young often has no immediate effect on hearing but is likely to result in hearing loss later in life.

Commentary

Athletes learn to deal with adversity The achievements of the high school student-athletes writing in my summer series are notable and numerous. They have won state championships in bowling, football, golf, wrestling and track and field. They have achieved great individual and team success. But along the way there LARRY have been defeats and disLARSON appointments. Each of these seniors-to-be explains how he or she has learned to handle adversity. Michela Paradiso, Upper Arlington, soccer and basketball: “I have a picture of myself after losing to Dublin Coffman in the regional Division I championship game my sophomore year on my bedroom wall. I see it every morning when I wake up. I think it is important to remember what defeat feels like as it creates motivation to improve and the desire and drive to never feel like that again.” Faith Washington, Reynoldsburg, track: “Disappointment is the goal that you failed to accomplish. Defeat is when you fail to try again. Never give up.” Napoleon Bell, Hartley, football and wrestling: “To be the best, one must experience defeat. One must know his mistakes and know where he does not want to be again.” Morgan Ransom, Columbus Academy, golf: “No matter how good you are there will always be disappointments. My advice is to move on and learn from your mistakes because defeat will make you stronger.” Austin Cuervo, St. Charles, golf: “I handle defeat and disappointment as fuel to go out and work even harder to be more prepared.” Chase Delande, Hilliard Davidson, football and wrestling: “Just tell yourself that you don’t ever want to feel that pain of losing again and that you need to work much harder to be successful.” Jimmy Gammill, New Albany, football: “Use defeat and disappointment as a means to grow and work harder. Then simply move on and do better next time.” Jake Blankenship, Gahanna, pole vault: “Don’t let disappointment and defeat get to you because everyone has down days and if you worry a lot about it then things will continue to go down and will do more harm than good.” Mary Wells, Westerville Central, bowling: “Defeat and disappointment are part of any game you play. What is important is that you are gracious in both victory and defeat.” Speaking of being gracious, win or lose, the student-athletes next week will discuss how they view respect and sportsmanship in competition. I’ll see you at a game.

Hartley track trio set to run at next level By JARROD ULREY ThisWeek Community Newspapers

During the past four seasons, the Hartley High School girls track and field team became one of the state’s elite sprinting factories. Athletes such as 2009 graduate Ashlee Hoffman and 2010 graduates CharAnna Dixon and Chesna Sykes got things rolling at the 2008 Division II state meet when the Hawks turned in a fourth-place team finish. That trio led Hartley to a share of the 2009 state championship and to a runner-up finish in 2010, and Sykes (Ohio State) and Dixon (Cincinnati) both now run in college. Another trio that made a significant mark during that stretch, which included another state championship this year, will be joining Sykes and Dixon at the collegiate level next spring. After helping the Hawks score 47 Larry Larson is a former athlet- points to capture the state title June ics director at Grandview High 3-4 at Ohio State ahead of runnerup Toledo Rogers (30), Aisha Cavin, School.

Maya Pedersen and Chelsea Scott each will be competing in college. Cavin signed in May to compete for Ohio State, while Pedersen and Scott signed with Dayton and Pittsburgh, respectively, in February. Cavin verbally committed to the Buckeyes in April after also considering Oregon. In the 2011 state meet, Cavin finished third in the 100 meters (12.49 seconds) and ninth in the 400 (63.36). She also ran on the 800 relay (1:40.72) and 1,600 relay (3:50.13), both of which finished first. Cavin will join an Ohio State program that had its 400 relay finish ninth (42.94) to earn second-team All-America honors at the NCAA outdoor championships on June 9 in Des Moines, Iowa. Sykes was among the runners on that relay. Others on Ohio State’s 2011 roster who are central Ohio natives include Gahanna graduate Camai Brandenberg, Hilliard Davidson graduSee HAWKS, page B3

While winning the past three Division I state championships, the Reynoldsburg High School girls track and field program was strong in just about every area at one point or another. The 2009 team failed to score only in jumping and distance events, finishing with a Division I state-record 82 points. While the past two title teams weren’t quite as dominant, there was no questioning the depth the Raiders possessed in sprinting and throwing events. Two of Reynoldsburg’s biggest contributors in those areas, relay specialist Kacia Grant and shot and discus com-

petitor Donyelle Brown, will continue their careers on the college level. Brown signed in March to compete for Ohio University and Grant signed in April to run for Wright State. Although the Raiders were led the past two seasons by standout underclassmen Destinee Gause and Faith Washington, Brown and Grant were among those whom coach Denny Hammond praised for their respective roles. Hammond called Grant, who made three appearances in the state meet, the “heart and soul of our team.” In 2009, she ran on the second-place 400-meter relay (46.78 seconds) with Gause and 2009 graduates Timia Ingram and

Top Individual Performances: No. 4

Wildcats’ Smith shined in 22-inning marathon By SCOTT HENNEN

At a glance

ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Courtney Smith remembers it like it was yesterday, even though it was more than five years ago. The emotion. The excitement. The exhaustion. The strikeouts. The grand slam. Especially the grand slam. In May 2006, Smith, a standout senior pitcher for the Hilliard Davidson High School softball team, went headto-head with Sarah Phillips of Olentangy Liberty for 22 innings in a Division I district final at Pickerington Central. The three-day marathon wasn’t decided until Smith hit a grand slam in the bottom of the 22nd for a 4-1 victory. Smith also had 29 strikeouts, the 11th highest total in state history for an extra-inning game, according to the Ohio High School Athletic Association. In 2010, Hayley Flynn of Duncan Falls Philo set the state record with 55 strikeouts in 24 innings against Thornville Sheridan. “The biggest thing I remember is this wave of emotion,” Smith said. “I was exhausted and excited both at the same time. It was amazing.” It remains the longest OHSAA softball tournament game. Liberty and Davidson played seven scoreless innings on May 17, were rained out and never took the field on May 18 and played 15 innings on May 19. “The first day (the teams) were neck and neck and I don’t think anyone had a hit,” Smith said. “I remember it rained for like three or four hours (on May 17) and there were no lights (at Pickerington Central). “When we got rain the second day (May 18), I was really nervous because we had been playing well before the rain came. We were all really anxious to get out there and didn’t want to wait another day.” Smith’s counterpart also had an impressive performance. Phillips struck out 30, which ties her for ninth in the state record book with Medina’s Jessica Miller in 1999, but she also surrendered Smith’s district-title winning home run. “I think she said it was a riseball, but I don’t think so because I wouldn’t have hit it if it was (a riseball),”

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. 510. Check back next week for No. 3 and let us know your thoughts at ThisWeekSPORTS.com.

NOS. 5-10:

By Adam Cairns/The Columbus Dispatch

Davidson pitcher Courtney Smith struck out 29 batters and hit the gamewinning grand slam in the bottom of the 22nd inning in a 2006 Division I district final.

Smith said. “Maybe I got out ahead of the pitch before it started to move or maybe it didn’t move. I knew it was high and I was able to make contact and get it over the fence.” It was the first home run Smith had hit at any level. She played one season at the University of Indianapolis and never hit another homer. “I would have to say the grand slam was better (than the 29 strikeouts),” said Smith, who had 77 wins at Davidson. “It was my first homer ever and just to be able to finally end that game.” Liberty took a 1-0 lead in the top of the 22nd. Rebecca Adam hit a two-out double and moved to third on a single by Phillips. Emily Capretta followed with a liner that went off the glove of shortstop Cassady Busellato, scoring Adam. “It was a pitchers’ battle the whole time and we both gave up runs in the 22nd inning,” Smith said. “We went into the last inning with clear heads and ready to finish it.” Erin Roberts led off the bottom of the 22nd with a single before Lauren Espe and Meredith Parish followed with bunt singles to load the bases. Smith didn’t waste time, sending the first offering from Phillips over the leftfield fence. “(Phillips) had retired like 13 or 14 in a row before we came up in the 22nd, so having our No. 9 batter, Erin Roberts,

come up and get a hit was big,” Davidson coach Angelo Forte said. “Then Lauren Espe and Meredith Parish followed with bunts to load the bases and then (Liberty) shaded Courtney to right field. She had only hit one ball in her life to right field, so I was hoping she could get the ball to fall in left field so we could win it. (The grand slam) was something I never saw coming.” The Wildcats advanced to a regional semifinal at Ohio State, where they lost to Marysville 12-1 to finish the season 23-7. Davidson catcher Kaylyn Heading said the district final was the kind of game that a player never forgets. “It was 22 innings and those type of games just don’t come around often,” said Heading, who played four seasons at Rio Grande and graduated in 2010 with a degree in professional and business communication. “Courtney pitched great and then came up and got the big hit like she had throughout the season. It was a pretty magical ending. It’s still pretty cool, even today.” Forte said the game might never have reached the 22nd inning had a rule change not been made before the 2006 season. Before that, after games reached the 10th inning, they were played according to international rules. That meant at the beginning of each half inning, a runner was placed at second base with no outs.

RAIDERS

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

“We lost a district final that way to Mount Vernon (3-1 in 10 innings in 2002) and I had been pushing to get the rule changed for years,” Forte said. “I had been on both sides of the international tiebreaker, but I think the game is much-improved without it.” Before Smith’s grand slam, it was her right fielder and catcher who combined to make the game’s biggest play 11 innings earlier. Phillips was at second base with two outs in the top of the 11th when Kellie Schultz singled to right field. Phillips hesitated as she rounded third as right fielder Abbey Parsley threw to Heading. There was a collision at the plate, but Heading held on to the ball to end the scoring threat. “Courtney had a great individual performance, but we made some great defensive plays across the board and that (play at the plate) was definitely one of those,” Forte said. “I was talking to Abbey last week and she said that it was one of the most memorable plays she had as a softball player.” Along with her 29 strikeouts, Smith

seconds. Fishback also swam on two staterecord 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 points from Johnson, who made 19 of 34 from floor, including eight 3-pointers, and was 11-for-15 from the free-throw line. He added eight rebounds, six steals and five assists. 6. KHALILAH CARPENTER, Brookhaven girls track and field (June 2-3, 2000) — At the 2000 Division I state meet, the junior broke the meet and state records in the 100 meters with a time of 11.59 seconds on June 2. The next day, she won the 100 in 11.71 and the 200 title in 23.69, a time that lowered the state mark she already held. 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 15-9 victory over Solon at Fawcett Stadium in Canton with an interception with less than a minute remaining.

surrendered 14 hits and issued two walks, one in the sixth and one in the 11th. The Wildcats had 16 hits against Phillips. “That game was a duel between Courtney and Sarah Phillips,” Heading said. “Courtney was always one to find ways to get people out. I remember her riseball, screwball and changeup were working. She just found ways to, not necessarily strike them out, but to get people out.” Smith graduated from the University of Indianapolis in 2010 with a marketing degree. She stayed in Indianapolis and works in communications for an economic development firm called Develop Indy. “I was talking to a guy from work last week who was a swimmer in high school,” Smith said. “I told him about it and he thought it was great and really had an appreciation that I had played in a game like that. It definitely was a game that I’ll never forget.” shennen@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com

Grant ran on the secondplace 1,600 relay (3:48.78) with Destinee Gause, Jenkins and Washington and on the thirdplace 800 relay (1:39.63) with Diamond Gause, Jenkins and Washington. The 400 relay of Grant, Jenkins and the Gause sisters finished 14th (49.82). Grant also considered Ohio University and Akron before settling on Wright State, which has been coached the past three seasons by Fabien Corbillon. This season, junior Cassandra Lloyd became the first Wright State athlete to compete in the NCAA outdoor nationals and made second-team AllAmerica. Grant also was a three-year starter at point guard for Reynoldsburg’s girls basketball

team. She helped the Raiders reach a Division I state semifinal in 2010 and a regional semifinal in 2011. Grant, who said she might try to walk on with Wright State’s women’s basketball team, is considering majoring in business. “I liked the atmosphere and the coach,” Grant said. “(Corbillon) reminded me of coach Hammond. He’s all about practice makes perfect and all about teamwork and making sure your grades are there. He told me that if I go there, he’d help me get better.” Brown just missed advancing to state during her first two prep seasons. She took fifth in the shot put (38 feet, 1/2 inch) as a freshman at regional and sixth (37-3 1/2) at regional as a sophomore. In 2010, Brown made it to state in the shot put, finishing fourth

(41-11 1/2) to score five points. She made it to state this past spring in both the shot put (421) and discus (131-1), finishing eighth in both events to score two points. Brown, who is considering majoring in nursing, also plans to try the hammer throw when she joins the Bobcats. The Bobcats’Annie Beecham, a Granville graduate, finished 11th in the 10,000 to earn second-team All-America honors at the NCAA outdoor championships June 8 in Des Moines, Iowa. Clay Calkins has been Ohio’s head coach since June 2003. “I just liked it there when I visited,” Brown said. “The coaches seemed really nice and their program is pretty good.” julrey@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com

Defections leave MSL alignment unclear for 2013 Return of Licking County League also affects OCC By SCOTT HENNEN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Mid-State League likely is headed for realignment, but interim commissioner Jim Hayes doesn’t know what the conference will look like after the 2012-13 school year. Hayes, who is the athletics director at Teays Valley and chair of the MSL’s realignment and expansion committee, believes the league likely will have to add schools. “We have six schools leaving after the 2012-13 school year and that leaves 18 in the league,” said Hayes, who took over on an interim basis after Frank Pergolizzi resigned as MSL commissioner in the spring. “Right now, I wish I knew what we are going to do. There is no clear direction on what we will do.”

In the spring, MSL-Ohio Division members Granville, Heath, Lakewood, Licking Valley and Newark Catholic announced they would be leaving to join a re-established Licking County League (LCL). Licking Heights of the MSL-Cardinal also will be leaving for the LCL. “We could have three six-team divisions (with the 18 remaining schools) or two nine-school divisions, but neither of those has very much support,” Hayes said. “A lot of schools are worried about increased travel and competing against new schools that they don’t have a history with and they don’t know a lot about them. They want competitive balance and they are not sure about new schools.” Schools showing interest in joining the MSL include Chillicothe, Fairfield Christian, Grove City Christian, Logan and Worthington Christian. Another potential problem comes from the OCC looking to replace Watkins Memorial, which will be joining the six MSL schools in the LCL. OCC commissioner Dave Cecutti said MSL

At a glance The Mid-State League will undergo changes after six schools announced in the spring that they will be leaving at the end of the 2012-13 school year. Below is the current alignment: •MSL-Buckeye — Amanda-Clearcreek, Bloom-Carroll, Canal Winchester, Circleville, Fairfield Union, Hamilton Township, Logan Elm and Teays Valley •MSL-Cardinal — Berne Union, Fisher Catholic, Grandview, Harvest Prep, Liberty Union, *Licking Heights, Millersport and West Jefferson •MSL-Ohio — Bexley, Columbus Academy, *Granville, *Heath, *Lakewood, *Licking Valley, *Newark Catholic and Whitehall *Leaving MSL after 2012-13 school year

schools looking to fill that void include Bexley, Canal Winchester, Grandview, Hamilton Township, Teays Valley and Whitehall. Chillicothe, Logan and Marion Harding also applied for the OCC as well as Jonathan Alder, which has since joined the Marion County-based Mid-Ohio Athletic Conference (MOAC). Cecutti said he expects the 32-school

OCC to find a replacement for Watkins Memorial in the next few weeks, but there also is a possibility that the conference could expand. “The one-for-one swap (of a new school to replace Watkins Memorial) is there, but we’re also looking into adding another (eight-team) division,” Cecutti said. “If it’s in our best interest to add a fifth division then it’s something we will do. “I really don’t know for sure what direction we will be going, but we are looking into all available options.” Hayes expects the MSL to remain in three divisions, even if only five teams join the conference. That will mean two eight-team divisions and one with seven teams. “We are staying with the possibility of adding five new schools and having 23 teams in the league,” Hayes said. “It seems to be the idea with the most support. I think, for the big picture, that’s the best scenario.” Bloom-Carroll athletics director Chad Little said it might be time for change

if only for the fast growth of suburban schools. “Licking Heights was outgrowing everyone (in the MSL-Cardinal) and Bloom-Carroll is the smallest school in the MSL-Buckeye,” Little said. “When you are going up against (largeenrollment) schools like Canal (Winchester) and Teays Valley, especially in sports like football, you worry about injuries. You have concerns for the wellbeing of the kids.” As for a timetable for restructuring the MSL, Hayes would like to have things in order by the end of the calendar year. “My desire, as I shared with athletics directors and superintendents, is to know what we are doing by December,” he said. “Doing that will meet the guidelines of our league constitution. We (as a league) can vote on changes in either December or May, and we want to have things in line by December.” shennen@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com

HAWKS Continued from page B1 ate Tori Brink, Mount Vernon graduate Katie Groseclose and Thomas Worthington graduates Ellen Birmingham and Kelsey McHugh. Karen Dennis has been OSU’s women’s coach since 2005. “Their coach has been watching me for the last year, and I just figured I’d go there and get a good education,” Cavin said. “My parents are Michigan fans, so I haven’t been to the campus a whole lot, but I really do like the campus there.” Cavin and Pedersen have been key members of the Hawks’ past four teams. In 2008, Cavin ran on the statechampion 400 relay and won the 200. She and Pedersen each competed on the 1,600 relay that was fifth at state. In 2009, Cavin and Pedersen ran on the 1,600 relay that took second at state. Cavin also competed on the 400 relay that was first and defended her individual title in the 200. Hartley scored 55 points to tie Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy for the team

title. In the 2010 state meet, Cavin and Pedersen ran on the 800 relay that took second and on the 1,600 relay that was first. Cavin added a title in the 400 and took fourth in the 200. Hartley scored 71 points but settled for a runner-up finish behind Cleveland Collinwood (77). In addition to running on the 800 and 1,600 relays that won titles in her final prep meet this past spring, Pedersen finished third (56.84) in the 400. Adam Steinwachs stepped down as Dayton’s coach in June after helping the Flyers have at least one athlete at consecutive NCAA outdoor championships for the first time in program history. Dayton also has won the last two Atlantic 10 Conference indoor team titles. Sarah Hinkley recently was elevated to interim coach after previously serving as an assistant. “I really liked the atmosphere there,” Pedersen said. “It actually reminds me a little bit of Hartley because they have their athletes work their way up through their indoor season.”

Scott began her prep career at Columbus School for Girls. After finishing fourth in the 100 hurdles and helping the Unicorns 1,600 relay take second in the 2008 Division III state meet, Scott ran on the 1,600 relay that was fourth in the 2009 Division III state meet. She then transferred to Hartley for her junior season and ran on both the 400 and 1,600 relays that won Division II titles and added a fifth-place finish in the 300 hurdles. In the Division II state meet this past spring, she finished fourth (44.44) in the 300 hurdles and fifth (15.02) in the 100 hur-

dles. Scott also ran on the winning 800 and 1,600 relays. In the NCAA outdoor meet, the Panthers had their 400 relay run a program-record 44.24 to place 14th. Alonzo Webb has been Pittsburgh’s coach since 2002. “(Pittsburgh’s) only three hours away from home,” said Scott, who is considering majoring in dentistry. “The way they do things resembles the way coach (Richard) Jones does them and it was a good fit academically. My family felt good about me going there.”

The Beat Arts, eats and fun in central Ohio

FAB 5 By Jim Fischer

jfischer@thisweeknews.com

This edition of the Fab Five starts with four pairs of shows, leading up to our interview with Dave Koz, who plays the Jazz & Rib Fest — itself a perfect pair if ever there was one. Summer season for resi-

1 dent arts groups:

A better show theme moniker might not exist than “Rhapsody in Zoo: A Gershwin Celebration,” which is on tap Friday, July 22, at JazZoo, the Columbus Jazz Orchestra’s summer concert series at the Columbus Zoo & Aquarium. The Gershwin tribute features Bobby Floyd’s take on Rhapsody in Blue as well as timeless classics like Someone to Watch Over Me and Embraceable You. Tickets are $27-$15, and include zoo admission. Call (614) 724-3485 or call the Jazz Arts Group about table reservations at (614) 2945200. We can still picture the red and black Atlantic Records logo on our 45 RPM of The Spinners’Rubberband Man. Other hits, like Working My Way Back to You and Then Came You found The Spinners deftly melding soul, disco and the Motown vocalgroup vibes. The group joins the Columbus Symphony Orchestra for its Picnic with the Pops concert Saturday, July

Gardening: Checking out the bio and MO of California rock-reggae quintet Tomorrow’s Bad Seeds, we were disinclined to buy in. But appealing melodies, adept singing and crisp, nifty playing quickly changed our tune. Check ’em out for yourself Friday, July 22, at The Basement — great stuff for a summer Friday night. Tickets are $10/$12. Call 1-800-745-3000. The Black Lillies are a new “old” country band, but not in the straight-up honky-tonk sense. The Black Lillies inspire and aspire, while embracing other Americana influences like folk and the blues. Led by singer Cruz Contreras, The Black Lillies will play Woodlands Tavern Thursday, July 28. Tickets are $10. Call (614) 299-4987.

The Spinners

23, on the lawn at Chemical Abstracts Service. Tickets are $20 for adults and $8 for children age 3-14. For tickets or other information, call (614) 228-8600. Guitar (demi-)gods: Ahh, the Nuge. It’s easy to forget any more that Ted Nugent is a guitar slinger par excellence. He knows from rock n’ roll riffing and maintains a stage presence as crazy as ever. He hits the Lifestyle Communities Pavilion stage Friday, July 22. Tickets are $25. Call 1-800-745-3000. Nugent contemporary Johnny Winter is as revered as the aforementioned Nuge — Winter for his blues guitar brilliance. Snappy licks, punchy progressions and a ferocious abandon make Winter the total package. He plays the Newport Music Hall, with local blues rockers the Frank Harrison Group, Thursday, July 28. Tickets are $20/$22. Call 1800-745-3000.

Tomorrow’s Bad Seeds

Oh boys: This last pair is a two-in-one, as the Schottenstein Center hosts New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys Sunday, July 24. For women who were in their teens/’tweens in the 1990s, give or take, NKOTB ruled the early part of the decade, while BSB assumed the boy-band mantle later. The Beat gets the appeal, especially if you turn the evening into a “relive the moment” party. Knock yourselves out, ladies. Did we mention the Glee’s Matthew Morrison is a special guest? Husbands: Let’s meet at the hardware store. Tickets are $92.50-$32.50. Call 1-800-745-3000.

Dave Koz is a busy man. He’s touring this summer supporting a new hit CD, Hello Tomorrow. He hosts two national radio shows. He does an annual Dave Koz & Friends holiday tour and also a Friends cruise. He’s a Global Ambassador for the Starlight Children’s Foundation, recently partnering with a Napa Valley winery on his own line of wines, the sale of which benefits the foundation. And he recently shot a video for his tune, This Guy’s in Love with You, in support of marriage equality. Somehow he managed to find time to visit with The Beat, and treated us like an old friend besides, also speaking — unsolicited — fondly of Columbus and his past warm receptions on stage here. “I love doing our Christmas show at the Palace,” he offered, adding, “I’m excited to be out on this tour with my band. It’s something we don’t do as often as maybe I’d like. “The Christmas show is more elegant,” Koz said. “Summertime and outdoor shows are about cutting loose and having fun.” Of the many irons he maintains in the fire, Koz said, none of it would be possible without the music. “It’s the thread that holds it all together,” he said. And while his greatest love is playing live, Koz told The Beat that making records is an important part of his creative process. Hello Tomorrow is Koz’s 12th studio recording, and captures his sense that the personal and global upheaval that the world is currently experiencing is the cusp of a significant shift moving forward. “The world has a lot of my music, which is a blessing,” Koz told The Beat, “so I feel like to make a record, I really need to have something to say. What’s going to be the impetus?” In this case, it was a song by his friend, singer-songwriter Dana Glover, which became the album’s title track. “It was like boom, there’s the concept,” he said. “Change is inevitable but there’s an unprecedented amount of it in everybody’s lives. People are disoriented and we can fight it or embrace it. That’s what this album was for me, to come out on the other side more comfortable with discomfort.”

Dave Koz

The 32nd annual Jazz & Rib Fest hits the Arena District riverfront July 22-24. In addition to sax-man Dave Koz, headliners include Christian McBride and the Inside, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Bobby Sanabria, Christian Scott Quintet and Carmen Lundy Quintet. A host of local and regional acts will also perform. Admission to the festival is free. Visit www.hotribscooljazz.org.

If music is the thread that connects Koz’s disparate interests and activities, the saxophone is the needle. An “awkward kid,” Koz had tried a few instruments before he discovered the sax in seventh grade. “It immediately became my best friend, a vehicle to express things I didn’t have words for,” he recalled. “It’s been the primary relationship in my life.” After graduating from UCLA with a degree in mass media, he told his parents he was going to give music six months to see what could happen and then he’d find a real job. In that time, he scored gigs with Bobby Caldwell and Jeff Lorber, who championed a record deal for the young sax-man. “You always have goals and you try to imagine where you could go,” Koz told The Beat. “But life has a way of unfolding the way it wants. It’s mostly just about being in that flow.” For more from The Beat’s interview with Dave Koz, read the BeatBlog at www. ThisWeekNews.com/blogs.

Comfort food, dramatic patio make Flatiron a destination I hereby decree Columbus to be New Patiotown. This is because not long ago, prime al fresco settings were a semi-rare commodity around our parts; these days, they’re as prevalent as backyard barbecues in July. Speaking of cooking out, you can add the Flatiron to the burgeoning list of pretty and cushy Columbus patios. Just a few weeks ago, this ’cue-happy and Big-Easyfluent Arena District staple unveiled a dramatic outdoor makeover that provides you with yet another reason to eat at this breezy, sophisticated and jazzy place. The first thing you’ll notice is the alluring aroma of meat sizzling over charred hardwood emanating from a nearby smoker. Then you’ll see the flowers, greenery and handsome urban-parklike scenery that distinguish Flatiron’s patio. Specifically, multiple planters rim its perimeter, flashing with electric purple and pink petunias. Just behind these are lush shrubs and shade trees. Also standing out — once you’re seated — is a neat

MENU by G. A. BENTON close-up view of the eccentric Flatiron building, an unusual thin brick wedge built in 1914. Flatiron’s Southern-style comfort food frequently announces itself in crackly fried cornmeal. This is the case with calamari ($9), an appetizer item overplayed in the entire nation but still worth ordering here. Flatiron’s were crispy, tender, not too greasy, awakened by chili flakes and scallion bits and served with a tangy remoulade. Mondays are Red Beans and Rice nights in New Orleans, and you’re likely to find that special here at the beginning of the week, too — but Flatiron’s ($11) actually outshine many Crescent City versions. It stars a seriously spicy, crisply seared, XXL-sized housemade

vorful soupy beans fragrant with green peppers and onions and ladled near very nice rice that retains a chicken stock flavor. If you don’t know about the incomparable Oyster Po’Boy here ($11), you should enrich your knowledge and life by ordering one. That beauty of a messy sandwich starts with a crisp, chewy and first-rate Eleni-Christina sourdough baguette. This gets packed with expertly flash-fried cornmeal-battered mollusks with lots of lovely oyster liquor still intact.

Half Slab of St. Louis Cut Pork Ribs ($15). Mine were a Flintstones-big serving of juicy (if not super tender) meat slathered in a deep, dark and complex sauce — a thick and spicy glaze made with cooked-down cola, jalapenos and bourbon. The massive slab platter was further filled out by the finely chopped house slaw plus homemade fries. Flatiron regulars know to upgrade those potatoes to the Sweet & Hot fries. Other insider tips: The green beans are fantastic, as are many of Flatiron’s recurring daily specials — like a lusty Catfish with Tabasco Cream Sauce. For dessert, the enormous Custard Bread pudding ($5) has a lot of warm and gooey love to offer — and can easily feed three ever-more-happy people.

Tyler fires up wood-burning oven for new pizza offering Bryan Tyler wasn’t sure what to think of his pizzas, so he let the public decide. He put up a sandwich board outside of his Bread Basket shop in Reynoldsburg, announcing that free samples were available. “That brings them right in,” he said. The verdict: The recently introduced Naples-style pies are a winner. He praises his wood-burning oven, in part. He

and a friend installed the Forno Bravo brick oven themselves. Plus, they encased it in a stucco outer shell shielding layers of mortar, fiberglass insulation and insulated concrete. Using oak and ash woods, the oven burns at 700 to 800 degrees, cooking the pies in three to four minutes. The same fresh-tossed dough is used in the pepperoni and vegetable rolls, two of the more popular items in the store, 7516 E. Main St. There is no seating inside the bakery. The menu simple, offering four types of pizzas — classic Margherita, pepperoni, cheese and vegetable — that come in two sizes: the small, using 8 ounces of dough for a roughly 12-inch pizza, or the large, 16 ounces of dough producing a 16-inch pie, give or take. His simple, all-purpose sauce uses fresh tomatoes (while in season), garlic, sweet basil, kosher salt and pepper, cooked in the oven before being thinly spread across the dough. The toppings also are judiciously applied. “We’re trying to keep it simple,” he said. The finished product features a pie with a semi-thick, chewy crust, with the edges blistered by the heat. He said those who prefer thinner, crispier crusts can ask for them. Whole pizzas range in price from $5.50 to $7 for a small and $9.25 to $11 for large. They’re also sold by the By Lorrie Cecil/ThisWeek slice, $1.50 each. He experimented with different Bryan Tyler, owner of the Bread Basket, tosses pizza dough doughs in the beginning, making pizinto the air as he prepares one of his new pizzas on July 13. zas out of Italian and sourdough loaves The Bread Basket just added pizzas to the menu and uses a — the one he preferred — but cuswood-fired oven to bake them. To see a video, please visit tomers prefer the traditional crust. www.ThisWeekNews.com.

(Tyler said he might offer the sourdough option in the future.) It’s a major programming change for the Bread Basket, known for artisan breads, cookies and assorted baked goods. The place got its start in Gahanna six and a half years ago and later relocated to the Creekside development. Tyler opened the Reynoldsburg store in March 2010. He said he’s always had a desire to cook all of his breads in a wood-fired oven, so serving pizza was a natural progression. He’s also started cooking some of the breads in the oven, which leaves the loaves with a cracklier exterior. Yes, the process involves more time, because the bread has to be rotated, which is not an issue with a traditional oven. And then there’s the capacity issue, because the wood-burning oven is only 4 feet in diameter. “It’s definitely a labor of love,” he said. Tyler said he wants to begin offering pizzas at the Gahanna store, but those plans are on hold because of the financially troubled Creekside development, where Bread Basket is located. So he will wait to install new kitchen equipment until those issues are settled. The Bread Basket is open for lunch and dinner hours Tuesday through Saturday.
