  1. FWIW, Fresh Market just announced the closing of its Columbus store: https://www.nbc4i.com/news/local-news/fresh-market-to-close-upper-arlington-area-store/
  2. Agree with you all the way on this one, but with one caveat: Yvette Simpson torpedoed her mayoral aspirations in Cincinnati primarily because of her stance against Children's Hospital. There's no telling how many hundreds of votes this self-inflicted political blunder cost her.
  3. Thanks for drawing this to everyone's attention. Only a handful of older UO forum members probably realize how completely Scott Walker rose to UK stardom in the '60s. I also think it's safe to say that the majority of today's Hamilton, Ohio residents have no idea that he even existed. Nevertheless, for a brief time in that distant past, this native son of theirs and the Walker Brothers rivaled The Beatles. Below are three links to sources that touch on this gifted artist and the sadness of his passing. Enclosed lastly is a song about death Walker borrowed from a French singer and made his own, as did David Bowie later on. Personally, I was drawn in by how such a poignant song was so whimsically framed by one YouTube contributor.

  4. In support of what's being discussed here, a local media source just added this: https://www.wcpo.com/news/local-news/hamilton-county/cincinnati/mount-adams/once-the-liveliest-spot-in-cincinnati-mount-adams-is-growing-up-and-settling-down
  5. Consider this store now closed: https://www.wcpo.com/money/local-business-news/city-inspectors-shut-down-clifton-market-over-missing-paperwork
  6. This is unfortunate, but to be expected: https://www.wcpo.com/money/local-business-news/clifton-market-lender-files-for-foreclosure It is extremely difficult for a small independent grocer to compete with giants like Kroger, especially in Clifton since Kroger opened their new Corryville store.

    Although the satellite photo may be described as some sort of blob, it can just as easily be distinguished as CIN-DAY. For a more refined look at the emergence of Cin-Day and Cleve-Akron-Canton as new CSA's, the original link (below) offers an excellent, enlargeable study. (Btw, as already mentioned, Youngstown does appear up for grabs by either Cleveland or Pittsburgh.) https://www.lightpollutionmap.info/#zoom=4&lat=5312649&lon=-9281492&layers=B0FFFFTFFFF
  8. ...and the beat goes on: https://townhall.com/tipsheet/mattvespa/2019/01/23/revealed-nathan-phillips-discharge-papers-released-and-he-was-awol-a-lot-n2539951?fbclid=IwAR2cYLgN7k7n0SoPde_DwYTm4YHesz6_GWZfH_RwpohDVu44wPMRuL96laQ https://www.redstate.com/jenvanlaar/2019/01/22/nathan-phillips-dd-214-released-shows-hes-not-quite-claims/
  9. High time to bury the hatchets concerning this tempest-in-a-teapot blown up into a ridiculous media feeding-frenzy!
  10. Downtown, a mall food court favorite will return to the Carew Tower: https://www.bizjournals.com/cincinnati/news/2018/10/31/mall-food-court-favorite-returning-to-carew-tower.html
  11. FWIW (pun intended), this is now how we reward bad behavior. It doesn't get any better than this: https://www.wlwt.com/article/city-kroger-to-pay-dollar240000-to-family-of-11-year-old-shocked-with-taser-by-police/24429931
  12. ^ Yes! FWIW, the Business Journal's editor followed up the original article with his own comments about it in his daily wrap-up, which was entitled: "A downtown game changer?" https://www.bizjournals.com/cincinnati/news/2018/10/19/five-things-you-need-to-know-today-and-a-game.html On a different note entirely, I'm wondering if this development might be stymied by the "usual suspect," John Cranley. This treacherous mayor has tampered with so many other downtown developments, I'm very afraid that his destructive influence may carry over here. Am I wrong?
  13. I haven't taken time to read it yet, but to my surprise this article just appeared on WCPO: https://www.wcpo.com/news/insider/all-in-cincinnati-new-report-details-costly-impact-of-racism-offers-recommendations-for-change

    One of America's Paleo-Education Departments just initiated a new thrust, in that Kentucky now intends to compete with Kansas: https://www.wcpo.com/news/state/state-kentucky/matt-bevin-encourages-kentucky-students-to-bring-their-bibles-to-school-on-thursday
