  3. Disappointing update to this project - and particularly inconvenient during these coronavirus times. The near east side Save-A-Lot grocery store closed last weekend: Near East Side grocery store funded with fed money and tax breaks is closing The Save-A-Lot store at 1179 E. Main St. on Columbus’ Near East Side, which opened in 2008 in an area desperate for a grocery store, is closing Saturday (March 21). ... A Kroger grocery store at 2000 E.

  7. Here's why the stay-at-home order isn't stopping work at Columbus' $220M Hilton tower project Construction on the Hilton Columbus Downtown's new tower – which will eventually turn the Hilton into a 1,000-room hotel – is ongoing despite the Covid-19 outbreak and the governor's stay-at-home order. That’s because the order, issued Sunday, does not apply to public works construction projects. The hotel is owned by the Franklin County Convention Facilities Authority. Site work is continuing for the $220 million Hilton project, Don Brown, executive director of the Convention Facilities Authority, said Monday. Excavation and foundation work is still ongoing. ...

  12. With Master Teague going down with an Achilles injury, the Buckeyes needed some veteran running back help for next season's roster.

But then he missed the next two seasons with knee injuries and is now set to graduate this spring. The 6-foot-7, 215-pound forward will be immediately eligible to play for the Buckeyes next season and will have two seasons of eligibility remaining due to the injuries. Towns was listed by ESPN as the #1 ranked grad transfer and choose OSU over Duke and multiple other schools.
