Blind-sided: Blue Jackets’ Jack Johnson is bankrupt; who led him there is biggest shocker
by Aaron Portzline
On the morning of Oct. 7, two days before the Blue Jackets opened the 2014-15 season, Jack Johnson left his Ferrari parked in the garage of his Dublin apartment and drove his BMW to a federal courthouse Downtown to file for bankruptcy. Johnson has earned more than $18 million during his nine-year NHL career, not including the $5 million he will be paid this season by the Blue Jackets.

by Lucas Sullivan
There are no promises of a big announcement in Mayor Michael B. Coleman’s State of the City tonight — unless you live in west Franklinton.

I actually was surprised to see paczki at the Kroger in Grandview the other day.

That’s the question Laura Christina Thompson and Evangeline Grace Roller are asking after Judge Jim Mason of Franklin County Domestic Relations Court refused on Wednesday to end their marriage.
I have a couple of pictures from a visit to Michael’s Pizza in 2008.
Good to see you back, Jared! Glad you got the computer problem fixed.
Mike and Katie know the pulse of Columbus dining scene, and are great people. Definitely worth a “Where I Eat” moment.
Glad to be back with a working computer.

By Spencer Hunt
CADIZ, Ohio — The Harrison County recorder’s office here used to be a quiet spot to research deeds, leases and other property documents that date to 1813.

Controversial method of extracting fuel from shale expanding in Ohio
By Spencer Hunt
Supporters of shale drilling, including Gov. John Kasich, see the beginning of an expanding oil-and-gas industry that could create thousands of Ohio jobs, all focused on producing a cheap, “ clean” energy supply that could last for generations.
