  1. Oh, you're right...hadnt seen the update. Thx.
  2. This was one reason Ohio officials were aware of this earlier than others - Ohio is the sister state to Hubei Province, capital Wuhan, and many Ohio universities have exchanges programs with universities in Hubei. A couple of Miami Univ students came back positive, pushing Ohio officials to act sooner than other states.
  3. Look even in this photo how much space has been given over to cars. I think the 1900s-10s would have been peak.
  4. All great news. Probably not feasible, but extending that Toledo line down to Bowling Green would make my train life 100% complete. After six years living in Japan, it's all I can do not to project that kind of transportation system on the urban Midwest...Hourly long distance trains between 500K+ metros and university towns, coherent urban rail and bus service, high speed service between the big metros.
  5. Or, "where does zoning allow rich folks to cut themselves off from society?"
  6. I would bet that was an AirBnB couple spending an evening or two in the city, not renters.
  7. There's no evidence anyone is getting "millions and millions" from this, least of all evidence from Breitbart.
  8. None that I've seen. A few of the existing retail spaces remain empty, so there's probably little incentive to build more.
  9. But the Southwyck site is surrounded by offices and housing, unlike Northtowne or Woodville - the other dead malls in the metro area. Some kind of mixed use distribution, commercial, residential, office mix would work best there. A lot of the surrounding retail and office space is occupied - albeit different than during Southwyck's heyday. I disagree with the article that it's a "no-man's land" - that's a racist dig at the area's growing African-American population.
  10. Trump tries to deflect attention from what he is doing by accusing others of doing it at the same time. He injects an accusation into the public sphere, then when we learn several months later that Trump has been doing precisely the same thing, it just seems like equivocation, because, didn't his enemies to it first? Roy Cohn's closet was homosexuality, and Donald Trump's is graft and theft. Same tactics, different closets.
  11. Congratulations President Trump on your Halloween Impeachment Hearing Certification! We knew you could do it! Good job!
  12. I speak Hoosier Apex, which might explain it.
  13. Clumbiss Day'in Clevelun T'ledo SinsiNati D'Troeet I aspire to ShihCAUWgoh, which is how AM radio announcers there say it.
  14. BG officials have been in touch with folks in Oxford, but yeah, BG has a long way to go reconstructing the Wooster St corridor. The roundabouts are finished now, and a new five-story hotel is under construction on East Wooster where the Victory Inn used to be; Panera is also open on E Wooster -- a new building where the Big Boy used to be, a new lighted BGSU sign is up at Wooster and Mercer, where Harshman used to be, and a few other houses across from the University are coming down. On campus, the new Business building/Hayes Hall is the major construction project, and downtown, reconstruction of Main Street seems to be taking forever, but is almost complete. Last bit: a medical marijuana dispensary is also open in BG, on North Main in the old Glass City Federal Credit Union building.
