  1. Columbus Division of Police abolishes Vice Unit: https://www.nbc4i.com/1861878926 Two high profile cases preceded the CPD's internal review into its vice unit. One was the arrest of Stormy Daniels last summer by undercover vice officers while she was appearing at a Columbus strip club. The second, and much more serious, was Columbus Police Vice officer Andrew Mitchell shooting a prostitute last year (who later died) during an alleged arrest. It was later determined that Vice officer Mitchell had been threatening multiple prostitutes with arrest if they didn't perform sex acts on him. Vice officer Mitchell was indicted by the Justice Department on seven federal charges and arrested and charged last week with deprivation of civil rights under the color of law and of kidnapping and sexually assaulting multiple victims under the guise of an arrest. Mitchell also faces charges of witness tampering and making false statements to federal agents.

  2. https://www.jacketscannon.com/2019/3/20/18273661/game-73-recap-columbusblue-jackets-flame-out-in-calgary-lose-4-2 Decent game last night in Calgary, but not decent enough against a 'Best in the West' Flames team. Would've been nice for the CBJ to have stolen a point or two in Calgary - but this was always going to be the toughest of these three Western Canada games. Edmonton and Vancouver are sitting third-worst and fourth-worst in the West. So the next two games are "must-wins" for the CBJ. The Jackets will need these points in EDM and VAN after getting none last night. Carolina won in a shootout against Pittsburgh and Montreal beat Philadelphia in regulation last night. Columbus is now only one up on MON and three behind CAR in the Eastern playoff race (see full standings below):
  3. ^ An update on the three new uses going into the former Max & Erma's: Kollektiv (co-working space), Wunderbar (bar), and Pierogi Mountain (restaurant) Columbus Navigator has a rundown on the Kollektiv co-working part of the redo: https://www.columbusnavigator.com/kollektiv-coworking-german-village/ Plus, a bunch of interior photos at Columbus Navigator. This one is the ground floor former restaurant portion of the building that most people remember. Quite a bit of the Max & Erma's interior has been retained: More photos of the building's second and third floors (i.e the non-public former Max & Erma's offices) are at https://www.columbusnavigator.com/kollektiv-coworking-german-village/ There's more about the Wunderbar and Pierogi Mountain parts of the redo at CU: Wunderbar, Pierogi Mountain Opening Alongside Co-Working Space in German Village A German Village staple has officially been replaced, but its remnants can be found for those who are looking. Max & Erma’s, which operated in German Village for 45 years, has become a combination co-working space, bar and restaurant. Kollektiv, a co-working and office leasing company, shares the three-story building with Pierogi Mountain’s second location and a new concept, Wunderbar. It’ll open to the public on March 15. Kollektiv offers 11 dedicated desks and six private offices, as well as 40 hot desks and several conference rooms. The ground floor they’ve dedicated to the full bar and restaurant, Wunderbar and Pierogi Mountain.

  4. This isn't part of the official celebration of CCAD's 140th year, but part of the CCAD downtown campus got featured in the latest issue of Action Comics: https://www.dispatch.com/entertainmentlife/20190304/ccad-appears-in-latest-superman-comic Issue 1008 of the long running DC Comics series that introduced Superman in 1938 features CCAD's Canzani Center as a meeting place. Unfortunately, the meeting goes bad and the Canzani Center was destroyed in the issue. However, CCAD's iconic ART sculpture next to it survives. According to the above linked Dispatch article, the author of this Action Comics issue included the CCAD building in the issue as a nod to his appearance there during last September's Cartoon Crossroads Columbus festival(!)
  5. The Columbus College of Art & Design has been around for a lot longer than most people think. CCAD Begins Celebration of its 140th Year: https://www.columbusunderground.com/ccad-begins-celebration-of-its-140th-year-tm1
  6. https://www.sbnation.com/college-basketball/2019/3/17/18270031/march-madness-predictions-2019-ncaa-tournament-picks-duke-kentucky-national-title The 2019 NCAA Tournament is slim on Ohio teams this year -- only UC & OSU got selected. But at least there are two game locations in Ohio this year: Dayton hosts the NCAA Tournament First Four games again on Tuesday and Wednesday. UD Arena is always a good setting to start out the tourney. And thankfully the NCAA isn't calling these "First Round" games anymore - it didn't sound right calling the next opening round games "Second & Third Round". Columbus hosts First & Second Round Games at Nationwide Arena on Friday and Sunday. Nice selection of teams will be in C-BUS. #1 North Carolina and #2 Tennessee will be there. But the marquee game for local interest is #7 Cincinnati against #10 Iowa.
  7. https://matchcenter.mlssoccer.com/matchcenter/2019-03-17-fc-cincinnati-vs-portland-timbers/recap Congrats to FC Cincinnati for their first-ever MLS home match and a decisive 3-0 win over the Portland Timbers yesterday!
  8. Well, color me surprised. Not only did the Basketball Buckeyes make the NCAA Tournament, they made it as an #11 seed. The Basketball Buckeyes will face #6 seed Iowa State (winners of the Big 12 Tournament over Kansas!). They play Friday at 9:50PM in Tulsa.
  9. https://www.jacketscannon.com/2019/3/17/18267506/game-72-recap-columbus-blue-jackets-at-boston-bruins Very nice game at Boston that went to overtime. But this time, the CBJ didn't prevail in OT (they're now 8-3 in OT). Fine game in goal by backup Korpisalo with 31 saves and only giving up an early power-play goal and the 3-on-3 OT goal. At least they earned a road point for the standings. After this weekend's play, Columbus still holds the WC2 spot -- one point below Carolina for the WC1 spot and three points above Montreal for the spot below the Eastern playoff line. The team will vacate Nationwide Arena to make way for the first two rounds of the NCAA Tournament. The CBJ will instead take their Western Canadian road trip this week - with a Tuesday game at Calgary, a Thursday game at Edmonton and a Sunday game at Vancouver. After that road trip, the CBJ return to Nationwide for two straight big home games against NYI and MON next week.
  10. 2019 GAME #3: https://matchcenter.mlssoccer.com/matchcenter/2019-03-16-columbus-crew-sc-vs-fc-dallas/recap https://www.massivereport.com/2019/3/16/18268658/columbus-crew-defeat-fc-dallas-mls-2019 Not the prettiest game you'll ever see -- but then the weather in the 30's with below freezing wind chills wasn't any better! Fortunately, the Crew got the job done with a strong first half. Gaston Sauro scored the game's only goal in the 10th minute with a header from a Santos corner kick. 2nd goal of the year for the previously goal-less Sauro! Columbus is at the top of the Eastern Conference standings with a 2-0-1 record after gaining points in all three of their opening games of the 2019 season.
  11. At least that's what I thought! Another Kaleb Wesson-less loss to end the regular season (a surprisingly close OT loss to #21 Wisconsin). Then in the B1G Tournament, Kaleb returns and plays a good game in a narrow win over Indiana - and then plays a not-so-good game in narrow loss vs #6 Michigan State. The Basketball Buckeyes finish 19-14 overall; 8th in the Big Ten with an 8-12 conference record (or 9-13 if you count the B1G tournament). Which bracketologists seem to believe is good enough for a 12th seed in the NCAA tournament(!) Color me skeptical, but I don't see how this year's Basketball Buckeyes deserve to eke their way into the NCAA tourney. But we'll find out Sunday.
  12. https://www.jacketscannon.com/2019/3/15/18268131/game-71-recap-sergei-bobrovsky-steals-a-win-columbus-blue-jackets-carolina-hurricanes Weird but wonderful 3-0 win over Carolina for the CBJ last night: Bob was Vezina Bob last night - setting a new CBJ record with a 46-save shutout! The two goals scored by the CBJ in the first period were from defensive defensemen McQuaid & Savard! Gene Simmons of KISS was at the game, had a very visible glass-side seat and was interviewed by the FSO sideline reporter during the game! (KISS is playing at Nationwide Arena tonight) Carolina goes all-in and pulls their goalie with 3:07 left after Columbus commits a 2-min penalty. The 6-on-4 power-play gambit backfires when Anderson scores an empty-netter 29 seconds later to clinch the win! Columbus was outshot 46 to 19 by Carolina! This was a big must-win home game for the CBJ. Columbus is now tied at 83 points with Carolina for the two wild-card spots - Carolina currently holds the WC1 spot by virtue of one game-in-hand over C-BUS. Columbus is 2 points up on Montreal in 9th-place going into tonight's game at Boston (a high-flying Bruin team that is suddenly on a 3-game losing streak).
  13. Game #70 Recap: Jackets Beat Bruins 7-4 in Game That Had Everything - A Panarin fight, a Boone hat trick and a big win: https://www.jacketscannon.com/2019/3/12/18263055/columbus-blue-jackets-beat-boston-bruins-panarin-fight Big & odd win last night over Boston. The team finally found their post-trade offense with 7 goals (equaling a season-high). And almost blew a 5-1 lead, but didn't. The win allows Columbus to hold serve in the standings. Still tied with Montreal in points, but the CBJ still hold the second wild-card spot via ROW tiebreak. Friday's home game hosting Carolina (who is two points ahead of the CBJ) is obviously huge.
  14. Bob-was-gr8 + offense-was-bad = https://www.jacketscannon.com/2019/3/11/18261063/game-69-recap-not-nice-new-york-islanders-thomas-greiss-columbus-blue-jackets-park-the-bus-i-am-sad Chance-for-CBJ-to-redeem-themselves-tonight: https://www.jacketscannon.com/2019/3/12/18260897/game-70-preview-boston-bruins-at-columbus-blue-jackets The shutout loss on The Island doesn't help Columbus' playoff position. Still in the second wild-card spot because Montreal didn't play last night - but the CBJ burned off their game-in-hand advantage. A chance to redeem themselves against Boston tonight - but as the english soccer announcers would say "they must do better".
