Bexley radio station WCRX-LP, 102.1 FM launches the Bexley Consumer Price Index (Bexley CPI).

Laura Franks presented the premier Bexley Consumer Price Index report for the first quarter, 2008.

The Bexley CPI reports the aggregate of the prices of a uniform market basket of merchandise purchased at retail in Bexley, Ohio. The report also includes quarter to quarter changes in the retail prices of the standard market basket.

The Bexley CPI can be compared to the changes reported for other goods and services reported by the Bureau of Statistics, U.S. Department of Labor.

As of the first quarter, 2008 compared to the fourth quarter, 2007, Bexley retail prices showed a slight decline. The statistical measurement of this slight decline is 0.62 percent or a little less than two-thirds of one percent.

This slight decline is attributable to the reduction in the shelf price of a single item.

The price of a second item in effect was also reduced in the first quarter, 2008 although the effective price change did not change the aggregate price of the Bexley market basket. This second item was on sale during the fourth quarter, 2007. During the first quarter, 2008 the shelf price of this second item was reduced to the same level as the coupon price of the prior quarter.

Because two items showed reduction in shelf price, the Bexley CPI is treating retail Bexley prices as showing a slight downward movement.

Bexley, Ohio. Residential tax abatements for restorations using authentic materials

One of the charms of Bexley is the residential architecture of the community. Design, materials and construction work together with superior landscaping to present pleasant vistas in the twenty seven neighborhoods of Bexley.

Small pleasant cottages grace many Bexley streets and neighborhoods.

Other Bexley neighborhoods have houses that look large and comfortable, timeless with quiet, unobtrusive architectural fittings of bygone eras.

Then there are austere Bexley mansions that amaze our eyes with architectural elegance, craftsmanship and fine materials.

An important component of these pleasing domestic buildings is the materials used in the original construction. Slate roofs, copper gutters and down spouts, quarried stones, bronze fittings, wrought iron fittings and hinges. All of these are subtle attributes that compliment the architectural features and landscaping of the homes of Bexley.

Sometime on a walk, focus only on the materials used to construct Bexley residences. You will soon recognize the houses with authentic materials. These are not loud pronouncements. They are quiet nuanced fittings that whisper “quality, skill, excellence."

Many of the materials used in contemporary additions and restorations are not authentic. Brass-plated steel replaces solid brass hinges; asphalt shingles replace slate and so on.

In small increments, perhaps only infinitesimal increments, the charm of Bexley residential architecture is being eroded.

A brass-plated steel hinge is substituted for a solid brass hinge. It’s not a major change. But the substitute is a small erosion of excellence. One hinge this year, one next year and then a plastic mail box replaces the wrought iron mail box.

Does anyone care that authentic materials are disappearing?

Of course practical household finance determines some of this erosion. Authentic materials are expensive, and sometimes not available. Sometimes, repairs are practical problems that surprise a budget. More often repairs are not ocassions for aesthetic reflections and so we choose the practical solutions.

As a community, should we encourage decisions that favor authenticity? How can we encourage the use of original materials in new construction, restorations and repairs?

Should the municipality take some action to encourage a market in Bexley for authentic materials?

In Bexley, real estate tax abatements have been granted for commercial, mixed retail and multi-family residential structures. Some of the tax abatements have been granted to buildings that imitate period architecture.

These same buildings use modern materials that give the impression of authentic period materials. But a moment’s glance tells the sad story of deception that these fake materials express.

The public tax abatements did not purchase something authentic for this community.

There are advantages to the modern building materials. Obviously.

But the advantages, whatever they might be, have nothing to do with aesthetics.

And living in Bexley is all about the aesthetics of daily life. Beauty in all that is quotidian.

Is it time to to subsidize things that bring beauty to our community life each day?

When families improve their houses and pick up the expense of authentic materials, should the community offer those families real estate tax abatements for their choice to preserve the beauty and the authenticity of their repairs and restorations?

Bexley, Ohio. Gallery Players opens production of "Forum."

John Manning interviewed his regular Friday guest Kriss Galloway. They discussed events scheduled for the Jewish Community Center including a performance by an Israeli Jazz artist.

Israeli native Gilad Hekselman and his trio of musicians were the featured guests during an evening of Jazz and Barbecue on Sunday, Feb. 17, at at 8 p.m. the JCC of Greater Columbus, 1125 College Ave.

Since his arrival in New York in 2004, the 25-year-old Hekselman has been earning a reputation as one of the most promising guitarists in the city.

He has shared the stage with many top names in the New York jazz scene, including Gretchen Parlato, Chris Potter, Greg Hutchinson and Reuben Rogers to name a few. He has played the Blue Note, Jazz Gallery, Smalls, 55 Bar, Dizzy’s Club, Minton’s Playhouse and Fat Cat. He has toured in Switzerland, Norway, Spain and Israel, and has played at numerous jazz festivals.

Manning and Galloway also discussed he Gallery Players production of ‘A Funny Thing Happened To Me On The Way To The Forum’ which will open on February 23.

Gallery Players, the Jewish Community Center (JCC) of Greater Columbus’ theater group will open Stephen Sondheim’s A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum, on Saturday, February 23 at 8 p.m.

Kriss said that the Sondheim musical centers around life in three adjacent houses in ancient Rome. In the center is the house of Senex, who lives there with wife Domina, son, Hero, and several slaves, including head slave Hysterium and the musical's main character Pseudolus, who wishes to buy, win, or steal his freedom. He is the slave of young Hero, son of Senex and Domina.

One of the neighboring houses is a brothel run by Marcus Lycus; the other houses the ancient Erronius, who is searching for his long-lost children (stolen in infancy by pirates).

One day, Senex and Domina go on a trip and leave Pseudolus in charge of Hero. Hero confides to Pseudolus that he is in love with the lovely Philia, one of the courtesans in the brothel next door. Pseudolus promises to help him win Philia's love in exchange for his freedom. Unfortunately, Philia has been promised to a pre-eminent soldier, Captain Miles Gloriosus, who is on his way to pick up his prize.

Kriss said that the ensuing craziness of mistaken identities and mixed-up pairs creates a non-stop laugh-fest.

The production is directed by Pam Hill. Listeners who are familiar with Sondheim's darker pieces like "Sweeney Todd" will be surprised at this farce.

Kriss said that the lead role is performed by Jared Saltman, known to many as the JCC’s Cultural Arts Director.

Showtimes are:
• Saturday, February 23, March 1 and 8, at 8 p.m.
• Sunday, February 24, March 2 and 9, at 2:30 p.m.
• Thursday, February 28 and March 6, at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets are $12 for JCC members, $16 for nonmembers, $10 for senior members, $14 for senior nonmembers, $6 for children or students, and $8 per ticket for groups of 10 or more. To order tickets online, visit the Gallery Players website at, or contact Saltman, at (614) 559-6248 or Gallery Players, started in 1948, is the oldest community theater group in Central Ohio.

John Manning and Kriss Galloway then discussed JCC Summer Camp and the opening of registration.

Kriss said that it won't be long before the warmer months of summer will be here and that it is time to start registering for the JCC Summer Camp.

The JCC’s Summer Camp brochure is now available online, with registrations beginning February 8. Kriss said that Rachel Fox, JCC Camping Services director, has kept the camp fees level with the charges of last year.

Kriss said that every JCC Summer Camper participates in fun, age-appropriate activities throughout the week including arts and crafts, Judaics, high ropes course, boating, sports, free swim and outdoor survival.

JCC Summer Camps are accredited by the American Camping Association and offer camping options for ages 3 to 25. For example, there is:

Camp Yeladim - a camp for children ages two through three years, eight months (by December 1, 2007), offered at three JCC locations: JCC College Avenue in Bexley, JCC North in Dublin, and JCC New Albany.
Camp Ora – for campers ages three (by September 30, 2007) through entering Kindergarten, and Camp Chaverim - designed for campers entering Kindergarten through third grade, both offered at the JCC College Avenue location.
Camp Shemesh - for campers ages three years, nine months (by September 30, 2007) through entering second grade, at the JCC New Albany.

In addition to typical day camp activities, campers at the JCC College Avenue location receive swim lessons by certified Red Cross instructors in the JCC pool. Camp Chaverim campers also are given time each afternoon for free swim.
If spending the day outdoors in the woods, hiking, climbing, swimming, riding bikes, or making art is more your campers’ style, then the JCC’s Camp Hoover, located on the shores of the Hoover Reservoir in Westerville, is the perfect solution.

Camp Hoover, designed for campers entering 4th through 8th grades, is located on a 28-acre rustic woodland. It boasts beautiful woods, boat dock, high ropes course, swimming pool, bathhouse, pavilion, basketball court, bike trails, athletic fields, archery range and art area.

Camp Arye, located at the JCC College Avenue and the JCC Camp Hoover locations, is for children, teens, and young adults between the ages of 3 and 25 with special needs, including physical, cognitive, emotional, developmental, and learning disabilities. Camp Arye’s staff embraces each participant’s individuality, and supports campers in an effort to focus on their abilities and to challenge themselves to achieve both new and existing goals. Children transition between adaptive physical education, adaptive movement, music, Judaics, adaptive art, swim lessons, socialization and free swim.
Camp Arye’s staff-to-camper ratio of 1:3 ensures campers the opportunity for adventure and accomplishment with the safest supervision standards. Families also may provide their own aides if they feel their children will benefit from a one-to-one ratio. In addition, a registered nurse or an American Red Cross certified first aid provider is at each of the camp sites during hours of camp operation.

In addition, the JCC offers Specialty Camps for children in Kindergarten through 8th grade. For one week, these camps focus on particular activities, including Circus, golf, tennis, basketball, flag football, soccer, cheerleading, skateboarding, clay and craft, cooking, and magic, as well as a Summer Kick-off Camp and a Post-Camp Safari.
The JCC offers flexible enrollment options to meet the needs of busy families, as well as transportation and extended childcare. For more information, visit the JCC Summer Camp website at

Kriss and John then discussed the 4th Annual Columbus Jewish Film Festival set for March 8-13.

“Krav Maga, which in Hebrew means ‘close combat,’ is not only a total body workout, it also teaches participants defense techniques aimed to neutralize potentially life-threatening situations and escape as rapidly and safely as possible,” said Beth McCullough, JCC Fitness Program Director.

“Krav Maga is an intense mixed aerobic and anaerobic workout, relying heavily on the use of pads in order to experience both delivery and defense of strikes at full force,” she said. “It can be almost as taxing to hold a pad as to practice against one.”
