I went there tonight and got a half dozen for my house and a half dozen for a friend. The service was not the best and the signage was non-existent so it made for a difficult ordering experience.
The donuts were definitely good, though.January 26, 2015 10:42 am at 10:42 am in reply to: Northtowne Elem/ Can you report a school to Children's Services? #1060677
This is horrifying. I’m so sorry this is happening.
Has there been any luck with the School Counselor? I would think that violence like this would fall under mandatory reporting. Could you reach out to Todd Tuney who is the Chief of Communications and External Affairs? If that gets you nowhere, I would file a police report. You’ve given them more than enough chances to remedy this.
Jury Room used to have one. Did Balls or whatever they’re calling it open yet?
I miss the Burgundy Room fireplace.December 4, 2014 5:31 pm at 5:31 pm in reply to: Columbus City Schools – News, Updates, and Discussion #1053269
I love our library.
I live a couple blocks south of Broadmeadows on the opposite side of High and I do hear the police helicopter and sirens in that area fairly often. I don’t think it’s really dangerous, but I don’t know if I’d want to live there myself. In the grand scheme of things, you could do much, much worse though.
Have you looked into the Georgetown Apartments just a little farther south?November 3, 2014 4:57 pm at 4:57 pm in reply to: Columbus City Schools – News, Updates, and Discussion #1048879
Thanks so much for speaking to the students, Walker and Anne! This is my pet project after spending several years meeting with students through various volunteer programs who all tell me that they want to be a football/basketball player or a movie star/singer Not that I’m here to squash dreams, but I do think it’s important to showcase careers that kids may have never thought about before. I’ve posted a request for presenters in another thread – https://www.columbusunderground.com/forums/topic/presenters-needed-career-programming-for-columbus-city-schools I would love to get you in front of our students. It’s a great way to see CCS firsthand and only takes an hour of your time!May 22, 2014 9:42 pm at 9:42 pm in reply to: Crafty Pint — Old Hoggy's / Gallo's Location at 161 & Linworth #1018692
My son and I had dinner there tonight and it was GOOD. We shared the honey bourbon wings (perfectly charred and a nice, not too sweet sauce), pork tacos (giant and tasty!), and the pork pot skins which fulfilled my stuffed potato skin craving – especially nice with the sriracha sour cream. For dessert we split the warm apple pie with bourbon vanilla ice cream, bourbon caramel, and crushed Fireball candies.
The decor is great and I loved all the extra touches on the table — airplane whiskey bottle salt & pepper shakers, bandanas for napkins, Trivial Pursuit cards at each table. It was really well done.
I didn’t try out the beer/cocktail menu since my dinner companion was only 13, but the rumblings I heard from other tables made it sound like there were some great options.April 22, 2014 11:21 pm at 11:21 pm in reply to: Columbus City Schools – News, Updates, and Discussion #1010210
A group of CCS parents are meeting this Saturday, April 26th, to talk about what we want from the district, how we can get our voices heard, and how we can connect with other neighborhoods so we can help each other when issues come up.
The meeting will be held at Clinton Heights Lutheran Church, 15 Clinton Heights Avenue, at 10am.
You can RSVP to the Facebook event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1446742788897545
We’d like to have all areas of the CCS district represented, so please spread the word!
Loved this movie!February 26, 2014 3:57 am at 3:57 am in reply to: Columbus City Schools – News, Updates, and Discussion #326999
It’s so disappointing to hear that about Mary Jo Hudson, but I’m not surprised. I’ve never seen her at a board meeting before she was given that spot and it sounds like she won’t be present for many now either. Imagine what could happen if we had a school board that actually cared about the students vs. their own political aspirations.
Hi! Reading Buddies is an excellent way to get into the elementary schools and see what’s happening. I meet with two students at Oakland Park once a week for about an hour total. You read with them and do some comprehension work while also chatting about their day. I can’t say enough good things about the experience.
I also volunteer as a Junior Achievement classroom instructor which is typically in middle school classes. It’s an hour once a week for 6-8 weeks.
I used to do Project Mentor through Big Brothers Big Sisters as well and it had both tutoring and social components to it. That was only an hour commitment once a week.
I think through volunteering, school events, and lottery tours, I’ve seen a big percentage of our school buildings. My son and I have been known to show up at other school’s plays, concerts, and games just to see what’s happening in the different schools. CCS can be a great place for you and your child, but you really have to invest the time and energy into it. I’ve also met some of the smartest, most passionate people I’ve ever known through school things so reach out to other parents and start attending as many PTA/PTO/neighborhood meetings as you can.
Fairmount bagel shop and Kem CoBa ice cream are right next to each other and definitely worth a visit. That neighborhood is a great one to walk around as well.
I don’t remember it being as bad for as long in previous years. I’m on week two of having undrinkable water in North Beechwold. Taking a shower is a stinky experience as well.
I live in North Beechwold and the water has been undrinkable for me the last few days. It tastes really earthy and just ugh. It’ll be bottled water for me for a while.
Does anyone know if a Brita pitcher would help with this particular issue?November 14, 2013 9:45 pm at 9:45 pm in reply to: Against 50/51 editorial author gets hit with post-election tax audit. #554610
