I-270/Rt. 23 project gets green light By CANDY BROOKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

When its construction is finished in about 2017, the new interchange at I-270 and North High Street will mean an end to the dangerous weaving traffic patterns that have caused accidents and headaches for motorists on Worthington’s north end. New partial-cloverleaf ramps will allow vehicles to seamlessly exit onto U.S. Route 23 north and south, and two trenched middle lanes will promote a smoother route north of the outerbelt. All of this will be done in keeping with Worthington’s desire for a new attractive

entryway into the city, with signs, light posts, and brick walls and piers all designed to reflect the aesthetics of the rest of the city. Worthington City Council on July 18 unanimously approved the next steps in the design and construction process. Council members said they were pleased with the plans as presented and acknowledged the work by city staff and officials from the Ohio Department of Transportation. “We’ve largely achieved our objectives, with some compromises along the way,” city manager Matt Greeson said. Nearly a decade ago, ODOT first pre-

sented its plans to fix the interchange where I-270, Route 23 and state Route 315 merge. The purpose was safety. From 2002 to 2004, a total of 1,600 crashes occurred in the section between routes 315 to 23 alone. The new design will allow motorists to exit from Route 315 and I-270 onto Route 23 without crossing lanes, either on the outerbelt or on Route 23 south or north. The two-lane trench on Route 23, north of the interchange, will allow northbound traffic to flow while outside lanes will allow northbound local traffic to turn into

Crosswoods or onto Flint Road. The trenches will be covered at those two intersections. Gary Harrington of ODOT said this would be the first such trench in Ohio. Also along the east side of Route 23, from Wilson Bridge Road to Crosswoods, will be a 12-foot-wide bicycle-pedestrian lane. It will be separated from traffic by a 4-foot-wide shoulder and will be about 8 inches higher than the roadway. Plans to build a pedestrian bridge over I-270 were too expensive and did not meet the needs of pedestrians or bicyclists, Harrington said. The new pedestrian-bicycle lane will

require crossing intersections, and the lane will not be separated with a barrier. Harrington said a barrier was not warranted because of the width of the shoulder and the path itself. “We do feel it’s a safe improvement,” he said. Total cost of the project is estimated at $293 million. The city will pay nearly $180,000 for the aesthetic features it had requested. The word, “Worthington,” will span I270 at the Route 23 bridge. It will be on a metal fence atop the bridge and will be See PROJECT, page A3

Record crowd samples Taste of Worthington By CANDY BROOKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Worthington-area restaurants served their best dishes on a balmy summer night that still attracted a record crowd to A Taste of Worthington. An estimated 3,300 people attended the 20th annual fundraiser for the Worthington Area Chamber of Commerce. The July 15 event was held in the parking lot of OfficeScape, 350 W. Wilson Bridge Road, and included music and games, as well as plenty of tasty food. For between $1 and $7, those attending could buy small portions of appetizers, entrees, and desserts. Everyone was invited to fill out a ballot voting for his or her favorite dishes to win the “People’s Choice” awards. As it has for the past several years, J. Gilbert’s Wood-Fired Steaks and Seafood

won first place in the entree category with its filet mignon with white cheddar chipotle mashed potatoes. Newcomer Rivage Atlantique took second place for its crayfish etouffee. Butter cracker-crusted walleye with garlic mashed potatoes in chipotle shallot sauce from Cameron’s American Bistro took third. Willow Brooks Christian Home took top prize in the appetizer division for its caramelized chicken-lime skewers. Second place went to Rivage for mini lobster rolls. Tied for third were shrimp durango from J. Gilbert’s and crab rangoon from J. Liu. Cupcakes from Blue Frost Cupcake won the sweet spot in the dessert category, followed by Graeter’s ice cream and Chasing Buckley band members Scott the sticky toffee pudding cake from Bridge- Maruskin (left) and Tiffany Baumgardner water Banquet and Conference Center. perform during A Taste of Worthington.

With public officials’ work complete, the fate of the Riverlea annexation rests with the voters. If final technicalities are ironed out during one last meeting of the Riverlea Annexation Commission today (Thursday, July 21), and if the councils of both Riverlea and Worthington act in a timely manner, the question will be put to the voters Nov. 8. Only if a majority of the voters of both subdivisions agree would the village of Riverlea become part of the city of Worthington. Riverlea is a village of about 550 people within Worthington’s southwest quadrant. It is an independent village, run by a village council and contracting with Worthington for police and fire protection. It is part of the Worthington school district. Last fall, a group of Riverlea residents decided to pursue annexation to Worthington. They collected the required number of signatures on a petition to force both Riverlea and Worthington councils to form a commission to decide on the conditions of annexation. The councils of both must agree to the conditions and send them on to the Franklin County Board of Elections to meet an Aug. 10 deadline to place the issue on the fall ballot. In Worthington, council must set at least one special meeting prior to that deadline. Council customarily recesses in August. Because of time limitations,

the conditions must be passed as an emergency. Emergency legislation requires a positive vote of six members of council, and residents are not able to recall the ordinance. A report of the commission will be made available to the public and probably will be sent to all residents prior to the election. The report is the work of six commissioners who have met each Thursday since early May. Worthington’s commissioners told fellow city council members recently that their intent was to make the annexation as cost-neutral as possible. City manager Matt Greeson reported weeks ago that the cost of operating Riverlea would be about the same as revenue expected to be collected from residents of the village. The challenge to commissioners was to figure out who pays for infrastructure work that needs to be done in Riverlea. They came up with a formula that requires Riverlea residents to pay for some of the road and sewer work over the next severSee ANNEXATION, page A2

Toy store coming to City council refuses downtown Worthington to pass cell-phone ban By CANDY BROOKS

ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Toyville is coming to town. A couple from Arizona has leased the southern third of the old Kilbourne building, 679 High St., where they plan to open a toy store in September. The shop will be called Toyville and will be modeled after four stores Diane and Gary Naumann owned in the Newport Beach, Calif., area until they sold them four years ago. Good quality toys ranging in

price from 50-cents to $150 will fill the 1,200 square feet of storefront formerly occupied by Curio Cabinet. HER is in the process of moving into the northern two-thirds of the Kilbourne commercial building, which was built in 1808 and is said to be the oldest building in Worthington. Diane Naumann said she was ready to get back into the toy business and was visiting her sister in Westerville when she came across the building, which was for lease. “We like the neighborhood feel,”

she said. “The building is beautiful.” Katie Wood, who is Naumann’s niece, will manage the store. When she was in college at Ohio State University, Wood worked holidays in the family’s California toy stores, which were called Toy Boat, Toy Boat, Toy Boat. The shops always focused in customer service, from making special orders to providing free gift wrapping. That tradition will continue in Worthington, Naumann said.“We’re really excited about it,” she said.

After an impassioned discussion, Worthington City Council on July 18 voted against prohibiting cell-phone use while driving. The vote was 4-2, with council president Lou Goorey and ordinance sponsor Dave Norstrom supporting the ban on using hand-held mobile communication devices while driving in Worthington. Norstrom, who tried unsuccessfully to have the same ordinance approved a year ago, is a consultant in the transportation field. He presented research showing that talking on a phone

while driving distracts drivers and leads to accidents. His plea was repeated by three central Ohio residents, including a woman whose husband was killed by a driver who was talking on a cell phone 11 years ago in Licking County. Sharon Montgomery of Gahanna said the only penalty the driver faced was a $75 fine. She countered the argument that the state should pass the ban, as opposed to communities, saying state legislators will act only if several communities begin passing their own cell-phone bans.

Colonial Hills Kiddie Parade winners named The 2011 annual Kiddie Parade was held July 4th in Selby Park. Young people were invited to decorate bicycles, tricycles, scooters, floats, strollers and more, in honor of Independence Day. Children also escorted their costumed dogs for the event. The parade entertained spectators at Shelby Park, with marching music provided by Worthington Parks and Recreation. Prize winners were: Bicycles/Scooters: Eli Hitzhusen (first); Wyatt and

Molly Estep (second); Marin and Griffin Henry (third). Tricycles/Big Wheels: Divna Lapid and Drew Barnes (first); Grant Fuerst and Evalynn Hall (second); Anna Sophia Severson and Wesley Hinton (third). Strollers: Cora and Caroline Stengal (first); Katie Becker (second); Jillian Scardina (third). Floats/Wagons: Meredith Hinton (first); Elise and Max Lehky (second); Evalyn Hall (third). Walkers: Grace and Gillian Warmkessel (first); Suzie Meijer (second).

BAN Continued from page A1

would present Worthington in the worst possible light and would approach the city being considered a police state, he said. “We might as well hang out a sign that says, ‘Big brother is watching,’” he said. Goorey said he agrees that the ban should be statewide but voted for the local law. “I do think it’s a safety issue, and I think it ought to be banned in Worthington,” Goorey said. The ordinance would have prohibited the use of hand-held mobile communication devices. Hands-free devices would have been permitted, as would the use of a cell phone when a motor vehicle is parked, stopped or otherwise removed from the flow of traffic. Drivers also would have been permitted to use a hand-held device to report a health or safety emergency, and they would have continued to be allowed in emergency, safety or publicservice vehicles. Penalties would start with a $150 fine for a first offense; followed by $500 for a second offense and topped out with a fine of up to $1,000 for a third or subsequent offense.

While conceding that drivers could be distracted by other activities, such as eating or tuning a radio, “the problem with this distraction is that it engages the brain,” she said. Worthington resident and former prosecuting attorney John Warton said there is not a single, rational, moral reason to not ban cell phones while driving. Studies show that it impairs reaction times much the same as drunk driving, he said. “This is a killer,” he told council. “It’s a stone-cold killer.” Resident Fred Yaeger said 60 percent of people approve of banning cell-phone use by drivers. Those people would approve of a ban in Worthington, and business would not be hurt, as some contend, he said. One of those is local business owner and resident Brett Holland, who said motorists have safe ways to use a phone while driving. “You will drive business people away from our fair city,” he said. Council member Joe Davis agreed. Laws already include provisions outlawing distracted driving. He said he sees no need to ban a particular device. cbrooks@thisweeknews.com To pass a cell-phone use ban www.ThisWeekNEWS.com

ANNEXATION

July 21, 2011

Stonebridge Crossing

Continued from page A1 al years and requires the city of Worthington to pay for some of the work. If annexed, Riverlea residents will be assessed for one round of road improvements. After that, the work will be done by the city. The Riverlea streets recently were slurry sealed, so the work would not be done immediately. Worthington council must pass an ordinance of necessity for the assessments by Jan. 1, 2018. The work will include new curbs and gutters, as well as milling and paving, estimated to cost $2 million. The city is required to pay $100,000 of that cost. The village is under orders from the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency to improve its sanitary sewers. A consultant has estimated the cost of improvements at $650,000. It could cost more, depending on additional testing. Those costs would be funded via Worthington’s capital-improvements fund in conjunction with the city’s sewer projects currently being planned. The cost to eliminate a lift station in Riverlea is estimated at $350,000. That work will be funded by the village’s general-fund balance, which is estimated at about $355,000. Riverlea residents could face more assessments if the circa-1925 water lines fail within five years. Beyond that time period, the city will maintain the lines. Other conditions of the annexation are as follows: • Riverlea properties fronting North High Street would become part of Worthington’s Architectural Review District, subject to decision of the Architectural Review Board. • Riverlea entrance signs would remain but would be maintained by Riverlea residents. • Worthington City Council would pass a resolution expressing its intent to keep the current layout of Riverlea streets. • Riverlea residents may vote in Worthington elections immediately but must reside in the city for two years before running for office. • Riverlea properties would be subject to the Worthington planning and zoning code. • Riverlea properties fronting North High Street would be zoned AR-4.5; those on the west side of Olentangy Boulevard would be zoned R-16; and the rest would be R-10. cbrooks@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekNEWS.com

Architecture firm again offers class on retail design Tim Lai and Eliza Ho, principals of Tim Lai Architect, will again be partnering with the Economic and Community Development Institute to provide information on opening new stores or revamping existing retail spaces. “Newcomers and experienced retailers are welcome, and our goal is to walk through the store design and build-out processes and highlight the issues our retailers need to pay special attention to,” Ho said in announcing the class on Thursday, July 28. The class will run from 1 to 3 p.m. and it will be held at the ECDI, 1655 Old Leonard Ave. The cost is $35. “There is a lot of interest in this area and it is what ECDI

wants to get more involved with,” Bob Leighty, training coordinator at ECDI, said in a press release. In the past few years, despite the economic recession, retail businesses experienced solid growth in Columbus, according to the announcement. “Given the city’s strong sense of entrepreneurism and a dedicated community supporting local businesses, many stores and restaurants with unique characters opened,” the statement continued. “Some of them have become so popular that their names are known regionally. For example, the Clintonville-based Pattycake Bakery and its deliciously nutritious cakes and goodies have attracted customers

from many Columbus neighborhoods and beyond the city. This successful business is now expanding as it develops a new City Beet Café that will open in early 2012.” During its expansion, Jennie Scheinbach, the owner of Pattycake and City Beet, has found it useful working with architects and designers to materialize her ideas, according to Lai and Ho. “Many retail owners like to do everything themselves and they might not realize they really should focus their energy and time on growing their businesses and leave the design and store build-out part to design professionals to achieve the best results,” Lai said in a statement. The class, now being offered

on a quarterly basis, covers issues such as choosing the right location, knowing license, permit and variance requirements; negotiating a lease; evaluation store efficiency; developing a realistic budget; working with a design professional; and knowing the store construction process. Attendees are encouraged to bring specific ideas about store design and build-out for discussion. There will also be a chance to win a $50 gift certificate sponsored by the Small Business Beanstalk. Register for the class online at www.eventbrite.com/event/ 1774422345/eorg. For more information, contact Leighty at bleighty@ecdi.org.

by Greg VanHorssen 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.

As it were

When building a capital city, first build a prison The first capital of the state of Ohio was located in Chillicothe. After a brief move to Zanesville, the capital returned to Chillicothe. But by 1810, the Ohio General Assembly was under more than a little pressure to move the capital to a place a bit more central. After looking at several places, the Assembly chose a site across from frontier Franklinton at the Forks of the Scioto and Olentangy rivers. They called the new town Columbus. Interestingly, the first public building erected in Columbus was not — as one might expect — the state capitol building. It was the state penitentiary. There was a decidedly practical reason why this was the case. The thrifty legislators planned to use prison labor to build the state’s new buildings and it would be useful to have a safe place to put them when their day’s work was done. The prison was located at the southwest corner of Main Street and Marconi Boulevard, where the cultural arts center is today. It is somewhat difficult to see what that area looked like two centuries ago. At that time, the two-story stone-and-brick house with a full basement stood at the crest of a steep slope that swept down to the river several hundred yards away. Built into the side of the hill, the west wall of the basement opened onto a large, fenced enclosure that served as the prison yard. The basement served as kitchen and service area for the prisoners, who lived in small huts built along the walls of the prison yard. Entering the prison through its front door on the eastern street side of the building, one found oneself in the first-floor home of the warden and his family. A prisoner entering the prison was lowered through a trapdoor in the floor to the prison below. From inside the prison yard, a stairway led to secure cells on the second floor of the stone house. Each day, the prisoners would sally forth from the prison to build a new capital city. By 1816, when the General Assembly arrived for its first session, a two-story brick Statehouse was completed and was complemented on Statehouse Square with a state office building and a courthouse. A few years later, a rather plain frame addition to the state office building would house local government officials. A public markethouse would be located nearby. Most of these public buildings were at least partially constructed by prison labor, as would be the new Ohio Statehouse, which began to be built in 1839. Over the years, the prison expanded in size and its yard moved closer to the river. The arrival of the Ohio Canal and National Road in the 1830s forced the removal of the penitentiary to a new site at the corner of what is now Spring Street and Neil Avenue. While we know quite a bit about the work the prisoners did and how they did it, it is often harder to get an idea of what these prisoners were like. In 1901, a local paper offered a glimpse of some of these men while trum-

Columbus’ first prison, pictured circa 1813, was at the southwest corner of Main Street and Marconi Boulevard.

peting the benefits of a new system of criminal identification. Dissatisfied with existing methods, a French policeman named Alphonse Bertillon had developed a new type of identification based on taking precise measurements of several parts of the body of an offender. These included head length, head width, length of the middle finger, length of the left foot and length of the forearm from the elbow to the tip of the middle finger. Reputed to be infallible since no two people would have the same measurements, the system was first adopted in Europe and by the turn of the century was in use in most parts of the United States. To illustrate the crudity of earlier systems used in Ohio, a reporter examined the early entry logs of the Ohio Penitentiary and offered some examples of how prisoners arriving at the institution were described. Perhaps without intending to do so, the descriptions tell us something about these people who were the first prisoners in a new town: “When the penitentiary was opened in 1815, the descriptions taken were more than interesting. Some of the entries have a comic cast. Of John Irons, received of Warren County, May 17, 1824, to serve three years for horse stealing, and afterwards pardoned by the governor, there is the following entry in pencil, ‘$30 will be paid for him delivered.’George Kerns from Hamilton County is particularly described as having ‘a piece bit off the underside of left ear.’Ephraim Ellis, a Negro, is described … as having ‘eyes dark, hair curly, complexion dark.’ George Giles is simply Bertillonized as having ‘a dimple on his chin. “Jacob Mills is described as follows: ‘Complexion baldhead-

ed’ and ‘tottering with old age.’ John Mahany’s ‘general appearance’ consists in the fact he ‘has a mother in Cincinnati.’ Scott Maythe has ‘two scars on left leg caused by the bite of a dog.’The ‘general appearance’ of another, Captain Mack, consists of some marks ‘in India ink’ and ‘a wife and four children.’Another, Silas Adkins, ‘personal appearance’ is recorded as ‘a scar on right cheek and a wife in Licking County.’ Jonathan Blodgett was a ‘much married man’ with ‘a scar on the right side and a wife in Huron.’ “Squire Bull is ‘blind of the right eye out.’ John A. Davis is minutely described as having ‘a scar on the right shin and one on upper lip.’ Roswell Fleming was ‘lame on the left knee.’ George Herbey’s ‘personal appearance’ would be sure to give him away because in addition to a dark complexion, his ‘wife in Ashtabula County had a scar on the right ancle and foot.’ Finally, there was Alfred Beason, alias Martin. Of him, the record simply said, “think he went out in 1835.” These brief descriptions tell us at least a little about some of the men who literally built the capital city in its earliest days. And one last note: For all of the confidence the writer in 1901 had of the Bertillon System and its superiority to old ways, it should be mentioned that two years later, in 1903, two men in Leavenworth Prison were not only found to have the same name but precisely the same measurements. Soon a new system — fingerprinting — would take the place of the “infallible” Bertillon method. Ed Lentz writes a history column for ThisWeek.

As it were

When building a capital city, first build a prison The first capital of the state of Ohio was located in Chillicothe. After a brief move to Zanesville, the capital returned to Chillicothe. But by 1810, the Ohio General Assembly was under more than a little pressure to move the capital to a place a bit more central. After looking at several places, the Assembly chose a site across from frontier Franklinton at the Forks of the Scioto and Olentangy rivers. They called the new town Columbus. Interestingly, the first public building erected in Columbus was not — as one might expect — the state capitol building. It was the state penitentiary. There was a decidedly practical reason why this was the case. The thrifty legislators planned to use prison labor to build the state’s new buildings and it would be useful to have a safe place to put them when their day’s work was done. The prison was located at the southwest corner of Main Street and Marconi Boulevard, where the cultural arts center is today. It is somewhat difficult to see what that area looked like two centuries ago. At that time, the two-story stone-and-brick house with a full basement stood at the crest of a steep slope that swept down to the river several hundred yards away. Built into the side of the hill, the west wall of the basement opened onto a large, fenced enclosure that served as the prison yard. The basement served as kitchen and service area for the prisoners, who lived in small huts built along the walls of the prison yard. Entering the prison through its front door on the eastern street side of the building, one found oneself in the first-floor home of the warden and his family. A prisoner entering the prison was lowered through a trapdoor in the floor to the prison below. From inside the prison yard, a stairway led to secure cells on the second floor of the stone house. Each day, the prisoners would sally forth from the prison to build a new capital city. By 1816, when the General Assembly arrived for its first session, a two-story brick Statehouse was completed and was complemented on Statehouse Square with a state office building and a courthouse. A few years later, a rather plain frame addition to the state office building would house local government officials. A public markethouse would be located nearby. Most of these public buildings were at least partially constructed by prison labor, as would be the new Ohio Statehouse, which began to be built in 1839. Over the years, the prison expanded in size and its yard moved closer to the river. The arrival of the Ohio Canal and National Road in the 1830s forced the removal of the penitentiary to a new site at the corner of what is now Spring Street and Neil Avenue. While we know quite a bit about the work the prisoners did and how they did it, it is often harder to get an idea of what these prisoners were like. In 1901, a local paper offered a glimpse of some of these men while trum-

peting the benefits of a new system of criminal identification. Dissatisfied with existing methods, a French policeman named Alphonse Bertillon had developed a new type of identification based on taking precise measurements of several parts of the body of an offender. These included head length, head width, length of the middle finger, length of the left foot and length of the forearm from the elbow to the tip of the middle finger. Reputed to be infallible since no two people would have the same measurements, the system was first adopted in Europe and by the turn of the century was in use in most parts of the United States. To illustrate the crudity of earlier systems used in Ohio, a reporter examined the early entry logs of the Ohio Penitentiary and offered some examples of how prisoners arriving at the institution were described. Perhaps without intending to do so, the descriptions tell us something about these people who were the first prisoners in a new town: “When the penitentiary was opened in 1815, the descriptions taken were more than interesting. Some of the entries have a comic cast. Of John Irons, received of Warren County, May 17, 1824, to serve three years for horse stealing, and afterwards pardoned by the governor, there is the following entry in pencil, ‘$30 will be paid for him delivered.’George Kerns from Hamilton County is particularly described as having ‘a piece bit off the underside of left ear.’Ephraim Ellis, a Negro, is described … as having ‘eyes dark, hair curly, complexion dark.’ George Giles is simply Bertillonized as having ‘a dimple on his chin. “Jacob Mills is described as follows: ‘Complexion baldhead-

ed’ and ‘tottering with old age.’ John Mahany’s ‘general appearance’ consists in the fact he ‘has a mother in Cincinnati.’ Scott Maythe has ‘two scars on left leg caused by the bite of a dog.’The ‘general appearance’ of another, Captain Mack, consists of some marks ‘in India ink’ and ‘a wife and four children.’Another, Silas Adkins, ‘personal appearance’ is recorded as ‘a scar on right cheek and a wife in Licking County.’ Jonathan Blodgett was a ‘much married man’ with ‘a scar on the right side and a wife in Huron.’ “Squire Bull is ‘blind of the right eye out.’ John A. Davis is minutely described as having ‘a scar on the right shin and one on upper lip.’ Roswell Fleming was ‘lame on the left knee.’ George Herbey’s ‘personal appearance’ would be sure to give him away because in addition to a dark complexion, his ‘wife in Ashtabula County had a scar on the right ancle and foot.’ Finally, there was Alfred Beason, alias Martin. Of him, the record simply said, “think he went out in 1835.” These brief descriptions tell us at least a little about some of the men who literally built the capital city in its earliest days. And one last note: For all of the confidence the writer in 1901 had of the Bertillon System and its superiority to old ways, it should be mentioned that two years later, in 1903, two men in Leavenworth Prison were not only found to have the same name but precisely the same measurements. Soon a new system — fingerprinting — would take the place of the “infallible” Bertillon method. Ed Lentz writes a history column for ThisWeek.

Engagement

Suit up for cosplay events More than just a costume opportunity for teens, Friday’s Kinyobi Cosplay event is a mini-anime convention. Yes, those attending should come in costume (must be rated PG) for a contest. Costumes may be store-bought or homemade, and prizes will be awarded. (Hint: you’ll score big points for creativity.) Cosplay — short for costume play — originated in Japan and has been popular there for decades. The increased interest in Manga (Japanese-style graphic novels and comic books) has skyrocketed the popularity of cosplay conventions, where those attending dress up as graphic novel and comic book characters, in the U.S. However, much more is planned for Friday, July 22, than just a costume contest. Japanese pop culture is part of the fun. Teens can make candy sushi using jellybeans, Fruit Roll Ups, Swedish Fish and more; watch anime clips; and draw their own Manga character. There will also be trivia challenges and a themed scavenger hunt that will take teens throughout the library. Old Worthington Library, 820 High St., will host Kinyobi Cosplay at 6 p.m. as part of TGIF, a library series that offers unique after-hours programs for teens. Future events in the series include a Zombie Invasion on Oct. 14. Want to give an anime or manga book a try?

“Highest Customer Satisfaction with Retail Banking in the North Central Region in a Tie.”†

*The annual percentage yield (APY) is accurate as of June 17, 2011. The rate is a variable rate and may change at any time. A minimum opening deposit of $100.00 is required. Must have a FirstMerit checking account in order to open the Reality Savings account and maintain an active FirstMerit checking account with at least 5 debit and/or credit transactions per statement cycle to waive the maintenance fee. Fees could reduce earnings on this account. Some service fees may apply; see bank for details. **All loans subject to credit approval. Offer valid through September 30, 2011. For example, a $120,000 3/1 ARM home purchase loan with 30-year amortization would have an interest rate of 3.50% for first 3 years of the loan. The 4th year interest rate would be 3.25% based on current 1-Year Constant-Maturity Treasury (CMT) Securities index of 0.19% and margin of 3.00%, and would be adjusted annually thereafter. With a 20% down payment and closing costs of $399.00, payments would be $538.86 for 36 months and $523.60 for the remaining 324 months. Payments shown do not include amounts for taxes and insurance. Actual payment obligation may be greater. The annual percentage rate (APR) on the loan would be 3.33% which is the cost of credit over the term of the loan expressed as an annual rate. APR is subject to increase after loan closing. Interest rate, index, and margin are those currently in effect. APR and closing cost offer do not take into account additional loan-specific finance charges or discount points you may be required to pay. Your final APR may also be adjusted based on factors including, but not limited to, loan amount, property location, loan type, occupancy type, property type, loan-to-value ratio, and your credit score. APR and Payments are calculated with 0.25% reduction in interest rate and margin for payments made with automatic funds transfer (AFT) from a FirstMerit account. APR and Payments will be higher without AFT. ***Closing costs of $399 exclude pre-paid interest, taxes, insurance, title and appraisal fees, secondary market delivery, loan to value and credit score related fees. †FirstMerit Bank received the highest numerical score in a tie among retail banks in the North Central region in the proprietary J. D. Power and Associates 2011 Retail Banking Satisfaction StudySM. Study based on 51,620 total responses measuring 28 providers in the North Central region (IN, KY, MI, OH, WV) and measures opinions of consumers with their primary banking provider.

Top Individual Performances: No. 4

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

vision 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),”

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 See SMITH, page C2

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.

Ohio State’s Kendyl Reed, a 2009 Kilbourne graduate, goes up for a header during a game against Minnesota last season. After scoring 36 goals in her final three seasons in high school, Reed has one goal and two assists in her first two seasons at Ohio State. She might move from midfield to defense in the coming season.

The thought of playing for the Buckeyes never entered their minds, Reed said. They were 7 years old. “I never really thought about that kind of stuff,” said Reed, a 2009 Worthington Kilbourne High School graduate. “I never thought Liz and I would be together for so long or be this successful.” Reed and Sullivan, a 2008 Olentangy Liberty graduate, were part of unprecedented success for the Buckeyes last year.

Not only did Ohio State reach the Final Four, where it lost a national semifinal to Notre Dame 1-0 on Dec. 3 in Cary, N.C., it matched the program-record for wins with a 17-5-2 record and earned a share of its first Big Ten Conference title by tying Penn State with an 8-2 league mark. In the postseason, Ohio State defeated St. Francis (Pa.) 1-0, Dayton (4-2 in penalty kicks after a scoreless tie), Virginia 3-2 and Georgetown 2-0 to reach the College Cup. “It was kind of surreal. We didn’t really feel nervous because we had never been that far,” Reed said. “I was just kind of taking it all in and just enjoying the moment.” Reed said a 1-0 loss to Michigan State in the 2009 regular-season finale served

as motivation for last year. The loss cost the Buckeyes a chance to win the Big Ten title. “Being so close to that Big Ten championship was really frustrating, but at the same time it sparked a fire in us,” Reed said. “We wanted to at least win the Big Ten last year. That continuous drive was the main thing that kept us going all year.” Reed has been working to adapt to the college game. She scored 36 goals in her final three years at Kilbourne, including 12 with 15 assists as a senior to earn OCC-Central Division Player of the Year honors. But in her first two seasons with the Buckeyes, Reed had one goal and two assists.

“It’s a completely different level,” said Reed, who played in every game last season with one start. “The speed of play is 10 times faster. “In high school I was able to get by on just my physical abilities. In college everyone is at the same level of athleticism. In order to stand out you have to have that special skill and be smart on the field. You can’t rely on your natural talent. You have to keep working on your skills.” Sullivan, who has been named captain for the 2011 season, said she has seen Reed’s game evolve. “Kendyl is the one I have played with the longest on the team and I always See REED, page C3

School.

The Worthington Post 239 baseball team turned in a dominating performance in winning its second consecutive American Legion District 12 tournament. Post 239 won three games convincingly, capped by a 16-4 victory in seven innings over Gahanna Post 797G on July 16 at Thomas Worthington High School. Post 239, which improved to 24-9, begins state tournament play Monday, July 25, at Beavers Field in Lancaster. The tournament draw takes place Sunday, July 24. Post 239, which finished 2-2 in last season’s state tournament and 30-6 overall, is seeking its first state championship since 1993. “It will be an eye-opener a little bit when they go down to Lancaster and play,” Post 239 coach Jim Townsend said. “We were there last year and we won two and lost two. It’s good competition. It’s what we’re used

season. We’re going to have to play our best baseball to win down there.” After receiving a first-round bye, top-seeded Post 239 defeated Don Gentile Post 532W (Westland) 11-1 in seven innings on July 13 and Post 797G 9-3 on July 14. Post 797G earned another chance to face Post 239 in the double-elimination tournament by beating Columbus (Hartley) Post 430 8-1 earlier on July 16. Post 797G needed a win against Post 239 to force another game July 17. Instead, Post 239 broke open a close game with four runs in the fourth inning and six in the sixth. Leading 5-4 in the fourth, center fielder Dan Eurich, who is in his first season with Post 239, delivered the big hit — a towering grand slam to left field. “It definitely got all the momentum back,” Eurich said.

Future OSU player wins AJGA’s Columbus Junior From staff reports

By Adam Cairns/The Columbus Dispatch

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

SMITH

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. 5-10. Check back next week for No. 3 and let us know your thoughts at ThisWeekSPORTS.com.

Continued from page C1 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 left-field 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

NOS. 5-10: 10. MAURICE HALL, Brookhaven football (Oct. 27, 2000) — During a season in which he rushed for 3,057 yards to rank fifth on Ohio’s all-time list, Hall’s most memorable individual performance came during the final week of the regular season. The Bearcats beat Briggs 75-16 as Hall rushed for 411 yards and eight touchdowns on 19 carries. 9. LATOYA TURNER, Pickerington girls basketball (March 19, 1999) — The 6-foot-4 senior helped the Tigers advance to the Division I state final with her 29-point performance in a 51-35 win over Wadsworth. The Ohio State recruit made 12 of 14 shots from the floor and was 5-for-6 from the free-throw line while adding five rebounds, four steals and two assists. 8. DARCY FISHBACK, Upper Arlington girls swimming (Feb. 27-28, 2009) — During preliminaries Feb. 27, Fishback broke the state record in the 100-yard butterfly when she finished in 53.38 seconds. She won her fourth state title in the event the next day in 54.17 seconds. Fishback also

each half inning, a runner was placed at second base with no outs. “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

swam on two state-record relays, the 200 medley (1:43.59) and the 200 freestyle (1:34.24). 7. CHARLES JOHNSON, Watkins Memorial boys basketball (Feb. 24, 1995) — There have been few more surprising performances than what this 5-8 senior guard accomplished in leading the Warriors to a 93-87 overtime upset of second-seeded and state-ranked London in the second round of the Division II district tournament. Watkins Memorial was just 1-19 entering the matchup but got 57 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 159 victory over Solon at Fawcett Stadium in Canton with an interception with less than a minute remaining.

softball player.” Along with her 29 strikeouts, Smith 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

POST 239 “They were starting to catch up to us. We got a bunch of guys on base and my hit definitely got the momentum back for our guys, and we ended up doing really well the rest of the game.” Eurich also had a double in the sixth and an RBI single in a four-run first. A 2011 Worthington Kilbourne graduate, he is hoping to play at Ohio State as a walk-on. Third baseman Will Meador tripled, doubled, singled and had three RBI for Post 239, while designated hitter Sam Adams doubled and singled. “We got off to a little bit of a sluggish start,” Townsend said. “Danny’s home run was a big lift for us. I thought we were a little bit flat, but that hit sparked us a little bit and (Post 797G) just ran out of pitching. I thought that might be the case.” David Lykens pitched the first three-plus innings for Post 239, allowing four runs on seven hits. He struck out two and walked one. After allowing four hits to begin the fourth, Lykens was

Berlin named Wolves’ girls tennis coach Ken Berlin, an instructor at the Racquet Club of Columbus, has been hired to replace Bobbie Davis as girls tennis coach at Worthington Kilbourne High School, athletics director Jeff Todd said. Berlin is the fourth coach in program history. Davis, who recently stepped down as coach, started the program in 1991 and coached through 2002 before leaving for health reasons. After coaching the team in 2004, she stepped down for personal reasons only to return again in 2006. Last season, the Wolves finished 11-5 overall and 5-2 in the OCC-Central Division. They finished the OCC-Central tournament with 47 points to tie Hilliard Davidson for third in the final league standings, behind champion Upper Arlington (7-0, 86). Under Davis, the Wolves won league titles in 1999, 2000, 2004 and 2005.

and Austin Dubois had RBI singles. “I’m happy with the season,” said Post 797G coach Mark Cararo, whose team finished 20-11. “There were some games that we gave away, but overall I’m very happy with it.” Post 430, which finished 3-15, defeated Westerville Post 171C (Central) 3-2 on July 15 to remain alive in the tournament. Alex Heinmiller threw 140 pitches to get win. He allowed seven hits, struck out three and walked seven. “I’m not happy with the record, but one thing I’m happy about is we sent two teams out of the tournament,” said coach Mark Heinmiller, Alex’s father, whose team also eliminated Post 532W 8-5 on July 14. “We didn’t quit. We could have thrown in the towel real easily. I’m proud of the character of my boys.

relieved by Alio Gasbarro, who pitched four shutout innings. Gasbarro allowed two hits, struck out three and walked one. Post 797G took its lone lead in the first inning on Peyton Ross’ RBI double, which scored Alec Tuohy to make it 1-0. Eurich, Collin Finn and Cody Strayer had RBI singles in the bottom of the inning and Finn added another RBI single in the third for a 5-1 lead. Ross led off the fourth with a home run to left, Christian Chiero had an RBI single and Alex Tanchevski added an RBI double to close Post 797G to within 5-4. Post 239, however, reclaimed control in the bottom of the inning. “I felt the momentum turn a little bit at that point,” Ross said. “I felt good after that. We scored more runs that inning and made it a closer game. We did well this season. There were some little things that we could have perfected, but overall we did well as a team.” Against Post 430, Post 797G scored five runs in the third to open a 7-0 lead. Collin Price

Kendall Prince, who will be attending Ohio State this fall, got a jump on her college career by winning the American Junior Golf Association’s Columbus Junior presented by the Memorial Tournament. Prince, who is from Lake Oswego, Ore., shot an even-par 71 in the final round to finish with a three-day total of 6-over 219 and win her third AJGA event. The tournament was held July 11-14 at the Ohio State Golf Club’s Scarlet Course. “It felt great to defend the home turf,” Prince told AJGA.org. “I now know that I can play this course well and play it smart. I have a lot of confidence going into next year.” Prince finished ahead of Watterson High School’s Lauren Grogan (225).

Nathan and Michelle Hurd are organizing a 5K to be held July 30 to raise money for SIDS research. Their infant son, Will, died almost two years ago. The Hurds are pictured with their sons, Nate, 4, who is holding a picture of Will, Sam, 6, and Jack, 11 months.

SIDS Fundraiser

Family is committed to making difference By PAUL BATTERSON ThisWeek Community Newspapers

every 100,000 births in the United States. Since 1983, the number of SIDS deaths has fallen by more than 50 percent, but there are about 2,500 deaths per year in the U.S., according to websites dedicated to SIDS prevention. Last year, the BabyWill.Org/SIDS Awareness run raised more than $17,000 for research. Hurd said the event attracted two types of participants. “We have a lot of passionate runners who participate. (In Columbus) there’s a vibrant running community and it amazes me how big and how passionate that group is,” he said. “The other group was families who have been personally impacted or know someone who has been affected by SIDS.” He said the event attracted several families who brought with them people to represent children who had died from SIDS. “There were more people there that we didn’t know than ones that we did,” he said. “It was very moving to see people show support for such a great cause. But on the other hand, it reminds you how serious the cause is because we have a personal connection to it.” Michelle Hurd said it was emotional watching more than 400 runners and walkers at the start of last year’s event. “There was a sea of emotions going on,” she said. “It was the first anniversary of Will’s death and I was due to have a (Caesarean) section two days later. It was hard remembering what had happened a year ago and here I was getting ready to have our fourth child.” The registration fee is $30 for adults and $20 for children 12 to 18 who sign up before Friday, July 15. It is $35 and $25 for those who sign up after July 15. Visit BabyWill.Org for information.

At the end of his eulogy for his 2-month-old son, Will, on Aug. 7, 2009, Nathan Hurd urged mourners to take action. “I told people, ‘When you think of our family, don’t think about how sad it is that we lost a child, embrace the commitment to make a difference and do something positive,’” said Hurd, a Grove City resident whose son died of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). His words struck a chord with family and friends, who approached Hurd’s father-in-law, Bill Brestle, about organizing what became the BabyWill.Org/SIDS Awareness 5-kilometer run. The second annual event will be held July 30 at downtown Columbus’ Genoa Park on the riverfront side of the Center of Science and Industry (COSI), 333 W. Broad St. Sign-in for the event is at 7:30 a.m. and the race begins at 8 a.m. After family and friends organized the inaugural event, Nathan and Michelle Hurd and their children — Sam (6), Nate (4) and Jack (11 months) — are more involved this year. The event will take place nearly two years to the day that Will died of SIDS. “Originally that date wasn’t our choice,” Nathan Hurd said. “Our friends and family decided to do it on that day because they were really looking out for us. “An event like this is for a very serious cause and we’re so emotionally invested in it. At the same time, you can’t be sad. The hardest part has been working through our grief while staying positive and optimistic that someday the medical community will solve SIDS.” SIDS, the leading cause of death in otherwise healthy babies between the ages of 1 month and pbatterson@thisweeknews.com 1 year, is responsible for about 50 deaths per www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com

know she will be the hardest working person on the field,” said Sullivan, who played club soccer with Reed through Ohio Premier. “I’ve seen her play in the game really mature and develop. She’s a huge asset for our team.” Reed, listed as a forward/midfielder on Ohio State’s roster last year, might join Sullivan on defense this season. “Accepting your role on the team was hard at first, but you realize your role is for the betterment of the team,” Reed said. “When you’re coming into college, you come in as one of the best on your high school team. But everyone on your college team was one of the best on their high school team. You have to take the backseat for a little bit while and learn the ropes.” While her role on the field may have changed from high school, her commitment to soccer and academics hasn’t wavered. Reed, who had a 4.0 gradepoint average in high school, was named an Ohio State scholar-athlete and was one of 19 members of the women’s soccer team named academic allBig Ten. A student-athlete must have at least a 3.0 GPA to earn the honors. “I have a real high standard for myself. I make myself be committed,” said Reed, who has a 3.88 GPA and is majoring in accounting. “I push myself in both academics and athletics. It’s not just one or the other. “The busier you are the less time you have to goof around. You have to focus on what you need to do instead of doing things that aren’t necessary.”

Defections leave future MSL alignment unclear 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 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.

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

“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 (large-enrollment) schools like Canal (Winchester) and Teays Valley, especially in sports like football, you worry about injuries. You have concerns for the well-being 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

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:

The Spinners

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.

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.

Dog cancer research might Pediatric HealthSource Abdominal pain not uncommon someday help humans By KEVIN PARKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Cheryl London’s dog, George, has cancer. The Clintonville resident fails to see any irony in that, even though she’s among those involved in research that seeks to determine if treatments which work on naturally occurring cancers in animals might have implications for treating similar cancers in humans. It’s not that London, who has a Ph.D. from Harvard, doesn’t recognize the ironic when it crops up in her life. It’s just that as a veterinarian, she saw a lot of cancer in pets and now as a researcher she sees even more. “We see it so much, I wasn���t even surprised,” London said of her dog developing the disease. And she’d very much like to be a part of people not having to see cancer in animals or people at all. “Cancer is cancer,” London said last week. “It’s a crappy disease on the human side and it’s a crappy disease on the pet side.” George, by the way, has been through chemotherapy and is doing fine, other than having to goodnaturedly put up, as dogs will, with the sometimes rambunctious play of London’s young daughter. “George is a hound and he is not a smart dog, but he’s great with my 2-1/2-year old,” she said. London is an associate professor of veterinary biosciences at OSU and a member of the Molecular Biology and Cancer Genetics program in the Ohio State University Comprehensive CancerArthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute. London and others in the program at Ohio State, as well as similar programs elsewhere, are involved in what is called “comparative oncology.” This doesn’t involve inducing cancer in mice and testing drugs to cure it, but instead devising treatments for cancers that develop on their own in pets. Viewing the different types of cancer — and there are dozens of kinds of breast cancer alone — at the molecular level enables researchers to pinpoint similarities between the disease in animals and humans. This work has the potential for speeding up the delivery of viable cancer treatments in people, according to London, in part because of how much more rapidly clinical trials can be started for pets. In part, too, dogs make better subjects for comparative oncology studies. For example, mice can’t throw up; they simply lack the mechanism. Dogs, as owners well know, can throw up, and sometimes seem to do so for the heck of it. This alone means dogs can help eliminate some treatment or drug regimen that induces nausea or vomiting, something that testing in mice would fail to reveal, London said. It’s one of the failings of what she called “mouse modeling.” “There are clear areas when we can contribute,” London said. Cheryl London was born in Boston. She earned her doctor of veterinary medicine at Tufts University after which she spent several years in private practice in Maine, an experience that helped push her toward a career in research. “I saw a lot of cancer when I was in private practice,” she said. “I was just very interested in learning about cancer.” More than half of dogs who live to be 10 years old will get some form of cancer, according to Lon-

don. After spending some time as a postdoctoral research fellow in the Department of Pathology at Harvard University, London spent six years on the faculty at the University of California, Davis. She was recruited to Ohio State in 2005 to help in building the “translational oncology program.” “I was really surprised when I got here at the depth of expertise at the cancer center and how metropolitan Columbus was,” London said. In addition to the expertise at the cancer center and the surprisingly metropolitan nature of Columbus, London said that finding a home in Clintonville was another factor that helped bring her to OSU.

OSU has 10 to 12 active clinical trials going on with dogs at any given time, according to London. The pet owners who participate in these are not charged, and in some instances drug companies provide incentives to get participants, she said. Ohio State is one of 20 academic comparative oncology centers involved in the Comparative Oncology Trials Consortium, which is managed by the National Institutes of Health-National Cancer Institute’s Center for Cancer Research Comparative Oncology Program. It can be frustrating work at times, London admitted. “Failure rates are very high in oncology trials,” she said, estimating about 80 percent.

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. Some chil-

dren with IBS tend to be more sensitive to stressful situations such as family conflict, moving, takDESALEGN ing tests and issues with YACOB peers. Sometimes, triggers are never identified. Though IBS generally 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 recur-

rent 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.
