Wilson Bridge corridor study approved By CANDY BROOKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Worthington City Council has approved a study that envisions Wilson Bridge Road as a vibrant mix of apartments, condominiums, offices and shops connected by a recreation path and a Matt pedestrian bridge over North High Street. Greeson The Wilson Bridge Road corridor

study is meant to guide the private and public development and redevelopment of Wilson Bridge Road over the next 20 years. Gahanna-based consultants Bird Houk Collaborative developed the study over

the past two years, based on public input, market research and assessment of existing conditions. The 1.4-mile stretch from the Olentangy River to the railroad tracks just east of McCord Park was targeted because it is an area where redevelopment is needed and could benefit the longterm financial health of the community, city manager Matt Greeson said. It

will be used as decisions are made regarding development, capital improvements and economic incentives. The 67-page document includes landuse maps and sketches of how the area could appear if its guidelines are followed. Offices, residential and mixed uses should be developed on most of the properties, according to the plan.

Residential and mixed-use developments and hotels could be six stories or higher in some areas, which would be new for Worthington, where a threestory limit is in effect throughout the city. At the far-west side, next to the Olentangy Parklands, land should be develSee STUDY, page A2

City to lose nearly $1 million a year from state cuts

‘Taste’ marks CREATIVE SPARK 20 years of appealing to palates, pocketbooks By CANDY BROOKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

By CANDY BROOKS In 1991, the Worthington Area Chamber of Commerce threw a small party behind the then-State Savings Bank in downtown Worthington. A few residents and downtown workers gathered one evening to sample the food of local restaurants. This was before the days when every suburban community had a “taste of” festival and was the modest beginning of what would become one of the community’s most popular summer events. When the 20th annual A Taste of Worthington is held Friday, July 15, it will be in the largest outdoor venue the chamber could find; 23 restaurants will offer everything from corndogs to ratatouille risotto; bands will rock; and children will find plenty of ways to entertain themselves while their parents eat and socialize. If the weather holds, some 3,000 people are expected to gather in the parking lot of OfficeScape Corporate Center, 350 W. Wilson Bridge Road, from 5:30 to 10 p.m. The overwhelming popularity of the event is not difficult to understand, chamber director Kathryn Paugh said. Where else could one find such a wide variety of food at such a reasonable price, she asked. Admission is $2; children under age 6 are admitted free. Food prices range from $1 to $7 so that people could sample and compare several dishes. “The other part that appeals to people in this community is an interest in connecting in activities that brings out kids, strollers and neighbors,” Paugh said. “And they enjoy supporting their neighborhood restaurants.” This year’s A Taste of Worthington will feature the widest array of fare and family events in the event’s history, she said. More than 50 appetizers, entrees and desserts, ranging from upscale gourmet to simple picnic-style favorites, will be served by 23 area restaurants and food vendors, who will compete for the public’s “votes” as favorites in the friendly “People’s Choice” competition. Soft drinks, bottled water, draft beer and wine also will be sold. A mobile ATM from Delaware County Bank & Trust will be placed near the beverage stations for visitors’ convenience. Food vendors will include Blue Frost Cupcake, Bravo! Cucina Italiana, Bridgewater Banquet & Conference Center, Buffalo Wild Wings, Cameron’s American Bistro, Cantina Laredo, Cheryl’s Cookies, Cumin Indian Restaurant, Dairy Queen, Friendship Village of Columbus, G. Worthy’s Bar & Grill, Graeter’s, Greek Express & Acropolis, J. Gilbert’s Wood Fired Steaks & Seafood, J. Liu Restaurant & Bar, The Laurels of Norworth & Worthington, Mojo TaGo, Old Bag of Nails Pub, Pastimes Pub & Grill, Rivage Atlantique, Rusty Bucket Corner Tavern, Willow Brook Christian Home and The Worthington Inn. “A Taste of Worthington 2011 is clearly a taste of many cultures, regions, culinary styles and diverse talents, much like See TASTE, page A2

Now that the state budget has been approved, the bad news is settling in: Worthington stands to lose nearly $1 million a year. The amount figured by city officials is about $958,079 less a year, beginning in 2013. That is 4.4 percent of the 2010 city operating budget of $21.8 million. “It’s going to be very difficult for us to figure out how to handle the loss of a million dollars a year,” Worthington City Council member Bonnie Michael said. Reductions begin immediately, but the first year of the full impact will be in 2013. The total loss over the next three years is expected to be $1,757,866. The loss will result from cuts to the Local Government Fund, the elimination of the estate tax and cuts to the tangible-personal-property-tax and public-utility-deregulation reimbursements. The total amount Worthington received from those three funds in 2010 was $1,374,743. Local government funds amounted to $868,987 in 2010, or 3.99 percent of the city’s general revenues. In 2011, that is projected to be cut to $825,538, followed by $569,621 in 2012 and $427,215 in 2013. The cumulative three-year loss will be $784,584. The five-year average from the estate tax is $604,303, though the 2010 revenue was $383,545. The estate tax will continue as is until 2013, when it will be discontinued. Reimbursements from the loss of personal property tax and public utility deregulation totaled $143,991 in 2010. That sum is expected to decrease to $37,267 in 2011; $14,496 in 2012; and $11,228 in 2013. Michael said no specific local reductions have been planned, but the budget will have to be rearranged to reflect the loss. See CUTS, page A4

10 new bike racks on path to approval By CANDY BROOKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Riding a bike for work or pleasure will become a bit easier if the city follows through with a proposal to install 10 modern, efficient bike racks around town. The inverted-U racks are inexpensive, sturdy and extremely functional, according to Fred Yaeger. Yaeger and Lisa Staggenborg, lead-

ers of Sustainable Worthington, have been lobbying the city to improve bike parking for two years and are pleased to see their efforts paying off. Yaeger also created a website that shows all 33 bike racks in Worthington. Press one of the bike icons on the site and a photo and description of the rack pops up. Many of the aging racks are unsightly, do not hold bikes upright and sometimes don’t allow for baskets. Yaeger

called them “highly ineffective.” The simple inverted-U racks are approximately 3-foot-tall pipes attached to sidewalks or parking lots. “They allow great density, and a myriad of designs of bikes can park at them,” he said. Inverted-U racks already are used at the community center. Slated to receive the new racks are the downtown municipal parking lots on both sides of High Street; in front

of the new parking lot near House Wines, at East New England Avenue and High Street; in front of the Worthington post office; the south ends of the southwest and southeast quadrants of the Village Green; the south end of the Griswold Center; and in front of the Kilbourne Memorial building, the Municipal Building and the engineering/service complex.

Middlebury Drive garage plans withdrawn By CANDY BROOKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Middlebury Drive homeowners Alec and Kristin Carpenter withdrew their application to build a new garage when 16 of their neighbors turned out in opposition at the Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) meeting July 7. “I didn’t know there was so much opposition,” Alec Carpenter told the BZA. The Carpenters had proposed to build a twobay, 1,176-square-foot detached garaged behind

their 830 Middlebury Drive North home. A variance was needed because the garage would have brought the total area of all accessory structures on the property to 1,702 square feet, 852 square feet more than the allowed 850 square feet. The home already has an attached garage and a shed. In a written statement, the couple said they needed more utility, garage and storage space. The new garage would have provided additional storage on a second story.

They stated that their basement is less than 400 square feet in area and that they have three vehicles and probably would add another when their daughter begins to drive in a couple of years. They also plan to add a second story to their house in a couple of years, they said. “We have become fond of our neighbors and neighborhood over that last 16 years and would hate to relocate over a space issue,” they stated. The BZA also approved variances for the folSee BZA, page A2

Entrees offer something for everyone’s palate, from filet mignon and braised shortribs to gyros and pork in at least five variations for meat-lovers, and from chicken served as all-American wings and savory Tandooristyle chicken tikka to spicy Asianstyle stir fry or tacos with piquant sauces. Seafood lovers might enjoy cracker-crusted walleye, crayfish etouffee, shrimp and scallop ceviche and fried fish and chips. Such specialties as saag paneer and rice, ratatouille risotto, white-cheddar chipotle mashed potatoes, quesadillas with pineapple salsa, pasta, tacos and corndogs round out the menus. Diners with a sweet tooth might be tempted by baked goods, including sticky-toffee pudding cake, assorted cupcakes, brownies and cookies, baklava and a guava turnover, as well as popular ice cream treats. The variety of family entertainment also has expanded for the 20-year anniversary celebration. Live music will be performed by Chasing Buckley and Smith & Wesson, two local bands whose repertoires span several decades of rock and pop music. The Columbus Crew will offer a family activity area with several interactive features, and New Image Studios will provide a photo booth where visitors could pose for instant photos to share with friends. Other family fun includes a supervised children’s play area; cornhole competitions for children and adults, conducted by Young Professionals of Worthington (YPoW); a “bounce house” and a caricature artist.

The event area is within walking distance of its major sponsor, The Shops at Worthington Place, which will feature concept sketches and planning documents for the mall’s renovation at its sponsor table. Other sponsors include Absolute Impressions Inc., the 2011 T-shirt sponsor, and corporate sponsors CME Federal Credit Union, DeVry University and Keller Graduate School of Management, Insight Bank; Keller Williams Capital Partners/LaBuda Advantage Real Estate Team, Mid-American Mortgage Solutions, Paradigm Properties of Ohio, Worthington Jewelers and WOW!

Continued from page A1 oped as offices and high-density residential, according to the study. Proposed for the front side of existing office buildings along both East and West Wilson Bridge are neighborhood offices, which would be built close to the street. Hotels or offices are recommended for the point where Old Wilson Bridge Road ends at North High Street and I-270. Most of the remaining area is recommended for mixed use or for offices. The only disagreement during council’s July 11 meeting was over a recommendation from the Municipal Planning Commission that professional offices and medium-density residential buildings along the south side of East Wilson Bridge Road be limited to two stories in height. Council members Scott Myers, Dave Norstrom and Lou Goorey said they had concerns about limiting the flexibility of development by insisting on a two-story limit. “It does reduce the potential for what can fit on that site,” Bird Houk planner Aaron Domini said when asked his opinion of the limit. The final decision: Wording

was amended to state that buildings on the south side of East Wilson Bridge, from Westview Drive to McCord Park, “should” be limited to two-story instead of “shall” be limited. The recommended multi-use path would run from McCord Park to Olentangy Parklands, along the far-north side of the area. It would be connected by a bridge over North High Street, just south of I-270. The plan shows public meeting spaces at hotels or office buildings that would flank North High Street at the base of the pedestrian bridge. The plan ends with recommendations for promotion, design, funding and economic development. The consultants are working with a steering committee to develop guidelines and standards of design. That work is expected to be complete in the fall, Domini said. A copy of Bird Houk’s study is online at

The Architectural Review Board was scheduled to review the designs and locations July 14. Worthington City Council is set to vote on the project July 18. The project cost is $26,000 and includes $4,000 for an enclosure to a recycling bin in the West New England municipal parking lot. Residents of the Worthington Inn condominiums requested it. Because two of the racks would be on the Village Green, they must be approved by six of seven council members. Worthington’s charter requires a supermajority approval of any permanent structure built on the Village Green.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The halfpound burgers, made with freshly ground beef, are crowned with pancetta and cheddar. Most desserts, save for Graeter’s ice cream, are made on premises.

Have You Heard? by Greg VanHorssen AN INSTRUMENT AS RUGGED AS YOU! The latest generation of hearing instrument users is not content to merely limit their use of their cutting-edge devices to social occasions and work environments. They also want to wear their hearing devices when walking, running, bicycling, playing tennis, hiking in the woods, and kayaking. After all, active people don’t want to limit their experiences by not being able to hear the sounds of rushing water and chirping birds. With this in mind, hearing instrument manufacturers are producing devices that utilize nanotech-based coatings that prevent moisture from seeping into water-sensitive circuitry. Along with a cover that protects the microphone from moisture and an easily replaceable wax protection system, these instruments also deliver the latest in automated functionality.

Academic Awards

Area athletes honored by Ohio State By PAUL BATTERSON ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Patrick Riffee had little trouble balancing athletics and academics when he was a student and lacrosse player at Worthington Kilbourne High School. However, the 2009 Kilbourne graduate quickly realized he was at a different level at Ohio State. The attacker for the Buckeyes men’s lacrosse team was one of several OSU student-athletes from the Worthington area who were recognized as scholar-

athletes at an awards banquet May 23 at the Ohio Union. “You go in there your freshman year, and you think it’s going to be a breeze,” said Riffee, who maintained a 3.28 grade-point average in education during his sophomore year. “Then you definitely run into reality when you’re waking up at 6 a.m. for practices and then having to go from there to classes all day. Often you don’t get back to your dorm room until about 10 p.m. “It was a rough adjustment. The athletic staff is very good at supporting us

and making sure we get the support we need.” Riffee, who will be a junior, was one of three men’s lacrosse players from the Worthington area who received a scholar-athlete award for maintaining at least a 3.0 GPA. Riffee joined Kevin Mack, a 2009 Kilbourne graduate, and Jake Sharick, a 2010 Thomas Worthington graduate. Ellen Birmingham, a 2007 Thomas graduate and a runner for the OSU women’s cross country and track and field teams, was selected for the U.S.

Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association’s Division I Academic All-American team and was a candidate for the Big Ten Medal of Honor. Other Kilbourne representatives at the banquet included OSU graduate Megan Alexander (women’s swimming), Buckeyes juniors Courtney Keller (spirit squad) and Kendyl Reed (women’s soccer) and sophomore Kevin Metka (men’s tennis). Thomas was represented by OSU junior Hannah Macko (women’s rowing). Junior William

Gehring, a Worthington resident who attended St. Charles, was among the members of the OSU track team recognized. Alexander, Birmingham, Gehring, Mack, Macko, Reed and Riffee also received academic all-Big Ten honors, which were awarded to sophomores, juniors and seniors who maintained at least a 3.0 GPA. Riffee was not surprised by the number of Worthington graduates who reSee HONORS, page C2


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

Rick Parcher, 71, has been coaching in the North Columbus Comets program since helping form the club in 1962.


Parcher’s influence goes beyond field By FRANK DiRENNA ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Rick Parcher has been an ambassador and teacher of baseball for 50 years. He not only instructs his players on the finer points of the game, but provides “life lessons” by reading poems and stories to help emphasize his points. “There are so many life lessons in baseball,” said the 71-year-old Parcher, who

coaches Tree of Life Christian School in the spring and the North Columbus Comets in the summer. “A lot of (the lessons) you learn the hard way — learning to deal with victory and defeat, success and failure. You learn how to make your own needs secondary to those of the team. “Those things all come automatically with athletics, but I believe life lessons that are learned are learned more carefully, definitely and effectively if the

process is guided by the coach, so I do a lot of talking.” Parcher, who has coached at Tree of Life since 1995, winning four MOCAL championships, helped form the Comets in 1962 during his senior year at the University of Wisconsin. The team’s first home field was at Whetstone Park. The Under-14 travel team now is a member of the Central Ohio Youth Base-

ball League. The Comets improved to 16-8 with a 14-4, five-inning win over the Grove City Vipers on July 6 at Ridgeview Middle School, which has been the team’s home since 1975. Parcher was part of a group that helped build four fields at Ridgeview. The complex now has seven fields. See PARCHER, page C3

Top Individual Performances: No. 5

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

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

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

Ben Levey, a 2006 graduate of Bexley, works with residents near Mombasa, Kenya. Levey is the chairman of the Likoni Community Football League, which grew from its original plan of 14 teams to 30. “It was hard to turn down anyone who wanted to be part of the league,” Levey said.

Levey making impact in Kenya By PAUL BATTERSON ThisWeek Community Newspapers

When he arrived in February in Likoni, a village of 100,000 people outside of Mombasa, Kenya, Ben Levey only knew how to count to 10 and say “hello” in Swahili. But the 2006 Bexley High School graduate quickly found a way to communicate with the children in the village — by playing soccer. “The passion for soccer over there is incredible. I have never seen anything like it before,” said Levey, who played for the Lions’ 2003 and 2005 Division II state championship teams. “It was an easy way to connect with the kids. “Passing the ball back and forth was so natural. There’s some sort of connection there. You feel like you’re friends all of a sudden.” While serving as a volunteer with Hatua Likoni, a community-based, non-government organization trying to alleviate poverty and promote education among the community’s youth, Levey became chairman of the Likoni Community Football League. The initial plan was to create a 14-team league, but the LCFL quickly grew to 20, 28 and then 30 teams. “Once coaches over there saw that I was serious and they saw the goalposts going up, they wanted to get involved,” Levey said. “I wanted to keep it small because I wanted to make sure everything ran smoothly, but it grew to 600 kids before I knew it. It was hard to turn down anyone who wanted to be part of the league.” Levey will play host to a fundraiser called “Kick Back 4 Kids” at 6 p.m. Monday, July 18, at the Bexley-area Old Bag of Nails, 18

BACKES Continued from page C1 UA the ball on its own 38. On the Bears’ first offensive play of the second half, Backes took the handoff from Ramey and ran to the right behind left tackle Simon Fraser and left guard Matt Lisi, both of whom pulled on the play. Backes got to the outside and outraced Solon linebacker Marc Leighton and Comets cornerbacks J.T. Staiger and Justin Bitner down the right side to the end zone for a 62-yard touchdown. The extra point by John Tarpy gave UA a 15-6 lead with 10:53 left in the third quarter. “It was a beautiful lead block by Simon Fraser, and Jeff popped it and went down the sideline,” Mayne said. “They weren’t going to catch him.” “Two linemen were pulling on the play,” Backes said. “We had an athletic line, which allowed us to do a lot of counter plays. (The linemen) made their blocks, and it turned into a footrace (to the end zone).” Solon cut the deficit to 15-9 on a 36-yard field goal by Tim Echan with 4:18 left in the third quarter but wouldn’t cross into Bears territory again until its final possession, which started from its own 30 with 1:40 remaining in the game. The Comets needed just five plays to reach the UA 22. Then, after an incomplete pass on first down, Solon quarterback Jay Price tried to hit running back

North Nelson Road. Money from a silent auction as well as a portion of the proceeds from food and drink sales will go toward buying goalposts, nets, balls, jerseys and additional equipment for the LCFL. Ben Levey Bexley boys soccer coach Greg Kullman said he’s not surprised that Levey’s idea grew so quickly. “Even as a sophomore on the 2003 team, Ben was a natural leader,” said Kullman, who was an assistant coach on that team. “He’s a hard worker and he gets those people around him to work together. “Ben worked with our freshman coach last year and we were hoping to have him back this season, but he’s decided the work he’s doing in Kenya is much needed. I couldn’t argue with him.” Levey got involved with Hatua Likoni as a way of giving back. Hatua means “step forward” in Swahili, according to the organization’s website, “At the end of my senior year at the University of Wisconsin, I decided I wanted to do something completely different,” Levey said. “I wanted to go to a foreign country and volunteer to do something before I started grad school.” Levey, who graduated from Wisconsin in spring 2010 with a degree in biology, planned to begin pursuing a doctorate in physical therapy at the University of Pittsburgh in August, but he has pushed that back to next June. Levey, who returned from Kenya on May 15, said he plans to go back on Aug. 18 and will be there for at least three months, although

he might extend that. Levey said was taken aback by the poverty he saw in Kenya, which is located on Africa’s eastern coast. On the soccer field, many children would tie together trash bags and wrap them into a ball. “After growing up in Bexley, I realized I lived in a bubble. My friends who aren’t from here call Bexley ‘Pleasantville,’” Levey said. “Sometimes when I was coaching, I would have to step back and say, ‘Look at where you are. Look at the houses around you. Look at the environment you are in.’ “I was amazed by the amount of poverty over there, but because of the friendliness of the people, they didn’t seem that different from me.” Interest in the LCFL grew quickly in an area that offers little extracurricular activities for youth. However, creating fields and organizing the league took longer than Levey anticipated. “Everything in Kenya runs a lot slower than the USA. After the first week there, I realized I could only pick one thing to do each day,” Levey said. “Something that would take 15 to 30 minutes here takes three to six hours over there for some reason. “The happiest moment (of my time in Kenya) was probably the first day the league started. I was sitting there watching the U-12 teams play. This kid scored and he was mobbed in the corner by his teammates and they were imitating the things they’ve seen from (England’s) Wayne Rooney and all the other soccer stars. It kind of brought of tears to my eyes. That made all the hard work worth it.”

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. 6-10. Check back next week for No. 4 and let us know your thoughts at


NOS. 6-10: 10. MAURICE HALL, Brookhaven football (Oct. 27, 2000) — During a season in which he rushed for 3,057 yards to rank fifth on Ohio’s all-time list, Hall’s most memorable individual performance came during the final week of the regular season. The Bearcats beat Briggs 75-16 as Hall rushed for 411 yards and eight touch-

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

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

Scott Greenberg, who had lined up as a receiver, down the middle of the field in the end zone. However, Backes stepped in front of Greenberg and intercepted the pass at the goal line, returning the ball to the UA 11 with 46 seconds left. “They were in a four-receiver set and were trying to stretch the field and get one of the seams,” Mayne said. “The quarterback put a little bit of a loft on the ball and right away I thought, ‘Man, I think Jeff will pick this off.’ Of course, he did, and he had the presence of mind to not try to be a hero and try to return it (for a touchdown).” “Someone turned to me in the huddle and said, ‘Make a play, Jeff,’” Backes said, “and a couple plays later, I made a read on the ball and the rest is history.”

UA’s offense came onto the field and, after two kneel-downs by Ramey, the game was over and the celebration began. “After Jeff scored (in the third quarter), from that point on, both sides couldn’t move the ball,” said Ramey, also a 2001 UA graduate. “Then, all of a sudden, (the Comets) go to the no-huddle offense and start moving the ball. You start to get nervous, but then out of nowhere (Backes) makes the interception. It was pandemonium on the sidelines.” During the postgame celebration, a UA fan held a sign that read, “Backes is God.” “He’s been telling us all year that the offensive line is his savior,” Lisi said after the game. “Tonight ... he was our savior.” Backes finished the 2000 season with a then-state record 3,353

yards rushing and 44 touchdowns. According to the OHSAA, he now ranks third in state history in rushing yards in a season, behind Bedford Chanel’s Tony Franklin (3,439) and Williamsburg’s Jason Bainum (3,386), both of whom surpassed his total in 2001. “He just continued to produce over and over again,” Ramey said of Backes. “It’s pretty amazing what he did (in the championship game).” Backes now is 28 years old and a third-year medical resident in orthopedic surgery at Mount Carmel West. He and his wife, Marissa, have two daughters — Leighton, 23 months, and Brooklyn, 7 months.

Bernard Master Tennis Classic

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

By Eric George/ThisWeek

Chuck Bolton of Westerville returns a shot July 9 during tournament play.

Eighteen years after he earned All-American honors for the University of Alabama men’s tennis team, Rick Witsken still is on top of his game. Witsken and Matt Schiller defeated 2011 Ohio State graduate Matt Allare and Buckeyes senior Steve Williams 6-4, 2-6, 6-3 in the men’s open final of the Bernard Master Tennis Classic on July 10. The two-day doubles tournament was held at the Wickertree Tennis Club in north Columbus. “I didn’t play for seven years. (Then two years ago) I played well in an individual tennis tournament,” said Witsken, who was one of four players who represented the United States in the Tony Trabert Cup in New Zealand last February. “All of a sudden it was like, ‘Wow, I think I can still do this.’ That kind of motivated me.” “Any time there’s a competitive tournament like this, you know you’re going to playing against


guys like these,” Schiller said. “It’s fun to see if I have any skills left. That’s the main reason I come.” Schiller, who lives in Carmel, Ind., and Witsken, who lives in Zionsville, Ind., also captured the men’s 35 title with a forfeit victory over Toledo’s James Kaser and Lima’s Jerome Moenter in the final. They received $800 apiece for winning the open title and an additional $200 each for winning the 35 championship. Witsken has played in the Bernard Master doubles tournament four times, winning the open division three times and finishing second the other time. Allare, who lives in Columbus, and Williams, of Manlius, N.Y., earned $400 each for reaching the open final while Moenter and Kaser each received $100 for finishing second in the 35 division. Allare and Williams struggled against the return game of Witsken and Schiller. “At Ohio State, we practice volleying quite a bit, but they knew how to volley as well,” said Al-

lare, who won two state doubles and two state singles titles for Kings Mills Kings High School from 2004-07. “They both have very good serves and return of serves. They knew what they were doing.” “They got the ball low at your toes consistently and put the pressure on,” Williams said. “The only thing you can do is serve better and not miss so many first serves. I missed too many first serves and that ended up being a big factor.” Because of low turnout, Wickertree canceled the women’s open in addition to the men’s 45 and men’s 55 divisions. That worked to the benefit of Witsken and Schiller. “We were glad that there weren’t that many teams because we are not young bucks anymore,” Witsken said. “It was 90 degrees and an on-court temperature of 120 degrees. That plays with your mind a little bit as well as your on-court abilities.”

Schools announce vacancies

Continued from page C1 Parcher was recognized for his contributions to the sport during the North Columbus Sports Firecracker Tournament on July 4 at Ridgeview. Parcher received a plaque for his years of service and a field at Ridgeview was named in his honor. The Comets then honored their coach by winning the U-14 division title. “I’ve told the guys they probably won’t realize how fortunate they are until they’re older and maybe some of them play in college,” Comets assistant coach Rick Sibert said. “They’re learning things now that guys typically don’t learn until they get to play college ball. From a baseball perspective, they’re so fortunate to learn these things and how to play the game the right way.” Parcher has fond memories of teams and players throughout the years. The Comets finished 38-6 in 1968, 31-0 in 1972 and 413 in 1981.

The team has played on the state, regional and national level, competing in national tournaments in Atlanta, Knoxville and Memphis, Tenn., and Manhattan, Kan. The team won three sportsmanship awards in four years at the Knoxville event. “A lot of that has been a lot of fun, but you can’t do that every year,” Parcher said of competing on the national level. “You have to have both the talent and the interest.” Parcher has coached several players who have enjoyed successful careers in baseball, including Mike Durant, who played in the program in the early 1980s. Durant, a catcher, played at Watterson and Ohio State before playing with the Minnesota Twins in 1996. Parcher recalled that Jeff Smith, who retired as baseball coach at Centennial in 2006, won the Comets’ first sportsmanship award in 1962. Parcher continues to recognize the team’s top sportsman each year. “I’ve coached hundreds of kids,” Parcher said. “The team is a team of talented kids

and almost all of them go on to significant careers in high school and college, a few in the pros. As a result of that there have been a lot of memories and a lot of those guys are still around and I get to see them from time to time. That’s great. I really enjoy that.” It appears Parcher has no intentions of stepping away from the game. “I’m still enjoying myself. There are some various things that will determine whether I decide to come back. One is whether I feel like the group coming up still wants me to be involved. The other would be my health. I’m in reasonably good health. I have a lot of pain in my joints, so I’m doing a lot of sitting down now,” he said. “Every year is gravy from now on. Anything I get after this point is certainly a blessing. I’ve had a great ride. I really have enjoyed it. All of it has been joyful, even the parts that were difficult.”
