    First of all, I don't think anyone can take any claims from Logan seriously to begin with. Her view that most media is liberally-biased is not supportable. Most media is, in fact, neutral or with only small inherent biases one way or another. Second, while her point on media integrity being watered down these days holds merit, she loses all credibility by suggesting it is only a problem with liberal media. Fox News is practically Trump's personal propaganda mouthpiece, and I don't think we even need to get into the problems with Brietbart, but she acted like they had no such integrity issues. Simply put, she's full of crap. Finally, I don't see Fox News as some legitimate counter to overwhelming liberal bias in the media. Trash is trash. I'd happily give up any of the most extremely biases news organizations on the left if it meant Fox News and the like would go crawl back under the rocks from which they came.
  3. Sounds like we should have just built the 3C.

  5. WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 2019 Ohio City mixed use project may feature downtown ad firm An exciting mixed-use development is in the works for the Hingetown section of Cleveland's Ohio City neighborhood, according to multiple sources. Although still in a preliminary stage, the development's concept at this point involves putting the offices for a fast-growing downtown company on the lower floors of a new building with apartments on the upper floors. Two sources say the site is 2828 Clinton Ave., the current location of one of the region's most well-known and oft-photographed businesses -- the 94-year-old Cleveland Vibrator Company which will relocate from the site. The downtown company seeking to move to the site is The Adcom Group, a full-service marketing and communications firm, according to two other sources.

  6. Given the lack of response to this I will now no longer be taking any Orignalists/Constitutionalists on this board seriously.
  7. But where do people from Columbus have to go to get them some Hermès?

  9. Mike Polk is a treasure.
  10. Why shouldn't LAND Studio be held responsible for a design that was deemed unsafe. Also to note, removable bollards were initially designed to close off Superior for special events but Nora Romanoff was quoted as saying those were cut because they didn't figure out how to do that with the utilities running under the road. I find that hard to believe since additional monies were allotted for underground utilities to be rerouted for construction needs.
  11. Not to get too off topic, but at the last CUF council meeting there was a discussion of the need for residential parking permits, especially with The District coming online soon.
  12. Stratacache to add 300 new jobs in downtown Dayton Stratacache will create at least 300 new jobs and invest $30 million in the properties it has acquired in downtown Dayton, CEO Chris Riegel said Wednesday.

  13. Tom & Chee releases revamped menu under new ownership Cincinnati-born grilled cheese and soup restaurant – and "Shark Tank" phenom – Tom & Chee is releasing its first new menu since the company was acquired by Gold Star Chili. Tom & Chee is rolling out a simplified menu that has been revamped to include new elevated sandwiches. It's the first major change since the company was acquired by Gold Star in 2017. "People look at our menu and say, 'it's just grilled cheese and soup, I can make that at home,'" co-founder Jenny Rachford told me. "We had to do something to cut through that perception."

  15. Restaurant and winery chain to open Centerville location this summer A full-service restaurant and winery will soon open in the Cornerstone of Centerville development, creating scores of new jobs. Cooper's Hawk Winery & Restaurant recently purchased acreage within the development from Miamisburg-based developer Oberer Companies for $2.5 million, according to Greene County property records. The Orland Park, Illinois-based chain plans to open its second Dayton-area location in the mixed-use center late this summer. Cooper's Hawk will employ 180 people at its the location, which will include a restaurant, onsite winery, tasting room, and artisanal retail market.

  16. Discovery District readies for new life amid $2.5B development boom With hundreds of new housing units proposed in the downtown’s easternmost neighborhood, the Discovery District will look completely different in a few years, developers told a crowd at the Columbus Metropolitan Club on Wednesday. The next big thing the neighborhood needs? It’s a bit more tricky than bricks and steel. "There aren't services – the 18-to-24 hour experience that a balanced neighborhood needs," said Joel Pizzuti, president of Pizzuti Cos. "A lot of neighborhoods are trying to embrace what they have. There's a lot to work with if people recognize and try to build on it." Downtown Columbus has seen 15 years of population growth – adding 600 residents last year and likely will hit 10,000 in 2020, said Marc Conte, deputy director of research, planning and facilities with the Discovery Special Improvement District.

  17. Rather than putting meters back in, just allow paid parkers to park there during daytime hours (8 am to 8 pm, let's say) as long as they pay via the parking app. Permit holders would be able to park there for "free" of course because they already paid for the permit. And overnight the spaces would be reserved for permit holders only. That is essentially what Columbus just implemented for streets around the Short North.

    Toxic Masculinity

    I think the term on the left is to say that a male is engaging in "performative feminism".
  19. Page is very much worth a follow.
  20. Two Projects Would Transform 700 Acres of Farmland West of I-270 Two large development projects with contrasting approaches have been proposed for land that sits on the western edge of metropolitan Columbus. Dwight McCabe, whose McCabe Companies is redeveloping the Hoster Brewing Company complex in the Brewery District., presented a preliminary plan to the Hilliard Planning Commission last week for 350 acres of land west of Alton Darby Creek Road and north of Roberts Road. Dubbed Alton Place, the proposal calls for a mix of single family houses, townhomes and apartments, anchored by a village center featuring a cluster of three-story commercial and residential buildings.

  21. Historic Maennerchor Building to be Preserved Over the past two years, the fate of the historic Maennerchor building at 966 S. High St. has been up in the air. But thanks to the efforts of two anonymous philanthropists, the building is slated for renovation and preservation in partnership with the nonprofit Jefferson Avenue Center. The property was purchased from the Columbus Board of Education and handed over to the Jefferson for project management. “We could not be more pleased to be entrusted with this storied property” stated Katharine Moore, Executive Director of the Jefferson Avenue Center. “Architect Mark Ours, the principal of Mode Architects, has created a stunning renovation concept that will showcase the remaining historic elements, while transforming the building into an attractive and functional space for future nonprofit tenants. This a a one-of-kind preservation success story.” More below: https://www.columbusunderground.com/historic-maennerchor-building-to-be-preserved-we1
  22. Board Approves Demolition of Franklinton Church for Affordable Housing The East Franklinton Review Board (EFRB) gave its conditional approval yesterday to a plan to demolish the former West Side Spiritualist Church at 79 McDowell St. The proposal, from the affordable housing nonprofit Homeport, calls for a four-story, 50-unit apartment complex on the site. Residents of the building would have access to 60 parking spaces in the Gravity II garage, which will be located directly across the street. That project was approved by the board last fall.

  24. Bernie was "allowed" to run because he wasn't seen as able to win. He did as well as he did because he was the only real alternative. When he gained ground, the dirty tricks on him began. Plus he was seen as unable to beat any Republican (true, Trump would have demolished him through condescension and mockery). What they didn't get is they were vulnerable themselves. They took the "left populist" vote for granted, even crossing the line to condescension themselves. They ironically forgot Bill's line about "it's the economy, stupid". Meanwhile the "right populist" candidate was reaching out to those voters, and they decided they would rather go with the candidate who acted like he cared about them (even when deep down they suspected he was full of poop) than the one who ignored them and whose supporters insulted them.
  25. Yeah I assumed that might be part of the reasoning, too. But would GE have even opened the operations center in the city if it was a bad business climate? They already have the massive operation in Evendale, and could have easily built out space there for the new operations center.
  26. I would extend that to the Maduro regime at this point. Enough is enough. Any defense of it has reached the point of inexcusable. Chavez may have been Daniel Ortega, but Maduro is Tomas Borge.
