  1. Today
  2. Sitting in the C terminal right now - New Mexican spot opening August 2019:
  3. I rode the abandoned rail ROW on the west side of the Mill Creek for the first time in about 10 years. This will make a great pave bike path one day...however the Mill Creek trail section completed back in 2013-14 between Spring Grove Ave. and the Mill Creek bridge already appears to be falling into disrepair.
  4. A new electric substation is under construction in South Fairmount:
  5. I rode my mountain bike around the construction today and managed to get a flat tire in a tubeless knobby mountain bike tire, a first. The internet is full of tubeless road bicycle tire demos running over nails and broken glass but somehow Lick Run ruined a much more robust mountain bike tire.
  6. The installation of the new water main junction is nearing completion. I took these photos on April 21. I couldn't quite tell what the structure is over the actual junction.
  7. Yesterday
  8. 2019 GAME #8: https://matchcenter.mlssoccer.com/matchcenter/2019-04-20-columbus-crew-sc-vs-portland-timbers/recap https://www.massivereport.com/2019/4/20/18509510/columbus-crew-sc-portland-timbers-3-1-mls-2019 Facing the first game of a three-games-in-eight-days stretch, Porter chose a full starting lineup for his light-blue clad Crew against the dark-blue clad Timbers last night (earth day unis). The only change was Sauro replacing Williams at center back (a starter-for-starter move). The Crew dominated play for the first 30 minutes. But, once again, struggled to find that final finishing touch. They had some decent scoring chances, but the final shot would go just wide instead of on net -- 10' saw Higuain have a creative chip shot beat the Timbers keeper off his line but go just left of goal; 26' saw a Mensah header off a free kick go just left of goal; 28' saw Robinho shoot on net, but get it saved, then had his rebound shot go right of goal. The Crew would pay for missing their chances when, in the 31st minute, the Timbers scored on a header off a free kick to make it 1-0. Then, in the 35th minute, a Timbers crossing pass sliced through the middle of the Crew defense to the edge of the 6-yd box, where it was nicely footed past Steffen into the net to make it 2-0. The Crew were beneficiaries a goalkeeping gaffe in the 69th minute when the Timbers keeper went to the edge of his 18-yd box to throw the ball to his teammate. However, the throw was intercepted by Pedro Santos. With the keeper off his line, Santos immediately gathers it and chips a shot over his head into the Timbers net to halve the lead to 2-1. The Crew had a chance to tie it in the 86th minute when a long ball was directed to Zardes (who was marked by three defenders!). However, the ball bounced off a Timbers defender and onto the path of an unmarked Higuain 20 yards from goal. But his low striking shot was saved by the Timbers keeper to preserve the lead. Portland closed off any further Crew comeback with an insurance goal in the 92nd minute to go up 3-1. First win of the season for Portland. Third loss of the season for Columbus. And probably a deserved result for both teams.
  9. Here are some visuals to go with the news about the new Dublin Library and the adjacent parking garage. Below is a site plan for the new library and parking garage. This Library/Parking Garage block is located one block north of the Bridge Street/High Street intersection (which marks the center of Old Downtown Dublin or Historic Downtown Dublin or Old Dublin - however one describes it). The old downtown of Dublin is on the west side of the Scioto River and across the river from the new downtown of Dublin (The Bridge Park development being built by Crawford Hoying). These old and new Dublin "downtowns" will eventually be connected by the riverside parkland and pedestrian bridge over the river that is currently under construction: Here is a rendering of the new library - as viewed from the corner of High Street and Rock Cress Parkway. The adjacent parking garage is not very visible in this rendering, but it is the shadowy block to the right in this image down Rock Cress Parkway: Here is a view of the library and parking garage under construction from the same corner of High Street and Rock Cress Parkway. This photo was posted in the February 19th ThisWeekNews article - https://www.thisweeknews.com/news/20190219/full-story-opening-for-dublin-branch-library-is-june-6 Same view of the library and parking garage under construction from the corner of High Street and Rock Cress Parkway. This photo was posted in an April 12th update from https://dublinohiousa.gov/downtown-dublin/ And from a brief video in the article - https://www.thisweeknews.com/news/20190402/parking-garage-to-open-april-12-for-dublin-branch-library - here are a couple of closer views of the new four-level, 550-space parking garage. These views were obviously taken just prior to the opening - given all the temporary fencing still present. Both views are from the Franklin Street side of the garage - the side furthest from the library. At the Franklin Street side, the garage has only three levels above-grade - due to the site sloping downward from Franklin Street to High Street: For a further overview of the Library and Parking Garages projects, go to these project pages in the City of Dublin's Bridge Street District website: http://bridgestreet.dublinohiousa.gov/public-garage/ http://bridgestreet.dublinohiousa.gov/dublin-branch-of-the-columbus-metropolitan-library/
  10. https://www.thisweeknews.com/news/20190219/full-story-opening-for-dublin-branch-library-is-june-6 Columbus Metropolitan Library system officials announced that Dublin’s new $21.6 million, 41,000-square-foot, three-level library is scheduled to open June 6. A grand-opening event will be held from 3:30 to 6 p.m. June 6 at 75 N. High Street in Dublin and will include a ribbon-cutting ceremony with library and city officials, refreshments, music and entertainment, according to the news release. https://www.thisweeknews.com/news/20190402/parking-garage-to-open-april-12-for-dublin-branch-library A new four-level, 550-space parking garage adjacent to the new Dublin branch of the Columbus Metropolitan Library, 75 N. High Street opened on April 12. Of the 550 spaces in the garage, 200 will be dedicated to library patrons during operating hours. The construction cost was $11.85 million - with the Columbus Metropolitan Library contributing $1.083 million toward that expense.
  11. Something wrong about posting this in the Russia thread. So I created a new thread for Ukraine news. My wife would like it too. Pretty stunning victory today for the new Ukrainian President-elect Volodymyr Zelensky. My wife is very happy.
  12. Are the kids over the age of 8-10? That's the age when Ohio cities have historically tended to lose their middle-class and up families. Cincinnati and Cleveland are a little different in this respect than Columbus due to parochial school culture. I remember getting a demographic report in the Oakley newsletter when I lived there 10-12 years ago which stated that literally fewer than 20 teenagers lived in the neighborhood.
  13. I love anything about James Garfield, but that was an oddly written article with an abrupt ending.

    Real life in Trump's America.... FBI arrests member of armed civilian group that detained migrants The group declared an "emergency" on their Facebook page, stating that their commander had been arrested and asking for donations. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2019/04/20/fbi-arrests-militia-leader-larry-hopkins-john-horton/3531834002/
  17. Our Columbus affiliate is beating the Tampa affiliate in the AHL playoffs right now (check NHL playoffs if context is needed). Monsters take 2-0 lead in opening round of 2019 Calder Cup Playoffs with 5-1 win over Crunch The Cleveland Monsters took a 2-0 lead in the opening round of the 2019 Calder Cup Playoffs with a 5-1 win over the North Division Champion Syracuse Crunch on the road on Saturday night. https://www.wkyc.com/article/sports/nhl/monsters-take-2-0-lead-in-opening-round-of-2019-calder-cup-playoffs-with-5-1-win-over-crunch/95-74c66a59-e420-459d-9860-8dd0610e7ddd
  18. The last time I was in Northside I thought it was just coincidental that I saw more kids there than I ever remember when I used to hang out there a lot even 5 years ago. Northside is at a really interesting cross roads it appears; a little gayborhood, a little hipster/grunge, a little yuppie, and apparently a little family oriented. As the neighborhood has changed, it has also still maintained a lot of the character and small business focus its always had. I don't know if Northside can continue to walk this well balanced line it appears to be on, but I hope so. Truly mixed communities like this are so rare.
  19. Maybe we just have one of the nation's hottest 60+ hookup scenes. Ever thought of that? Now you will.
  20. Last week
  21. Cleveland ranked 4th-best city for baby boomers, but they don't say why.... Best cities for millennials, Gen Xers, baby boomers https://www.foxbusiness.com/features/best-cities-millennials-gen-x-baby-boomers
  22. Take some more victory laps, bozo Poll: Mueller Report Sinks Trump’s Approval Rating To New 2019 Low And 68 percent said they were more likely to believe that the president or one of his cronies broke the law https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/politics-news/poll-mueller-report-sinks-trumps-approval-rating-825079/
  23. I've noticed out in the suburbs of Mason/West Chester/Sharonville it's always in a old 80s era strip mall...which I'm also assuming means cheaper rent. It's funny, Mikey's Late Nite Slice actually looked at 3cdc owned buildings around south of liberty but 3cdc told them that they weren't looking for another pizza joint tenant. Yet 3cdc allowed Taglio to take over the old Lacheys spot. Go figure... Last point, OTR is so saturated with, "American" fusion food that I know a good amount of people who have stopped going to OTR all together because they are simply tired of the lack of diverse offerings. Zundo, Teak, and I guess Quan Hapa/Kaze are a decent selection of Asian offerings. But I still hope 3cdc and Urban Sites begin to heavily target ethnic cuisine tenants that offer Korean/Vietnamese/indonesian food as well. Also authentic Greek/Isreali food (Kinneret Cafe in Deer Park is amazing!!)/Ethiopian food is on my bucket list as well. I love the that otr is home to a handful of really successful resturaunt groups, but I can't help that their, "chains" doesn't differ all that much.

    Ohio Music

    I just finished Keith Richards autobiography. Really good! Being earnest and devoted students of American music they were welcomed openly into the segregated black communities.
