    Blind-sided: Blue Jackets’ Jack Johnson is bankrupt; who led him there is biggest shocker

    by Aaron Portzline
    BlueJacketsXtra

    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 Rick Rouan
    The Columbus Dispatch

    The Dispatch analyzed about 1.3 million GPS data points created by city snowplows during the two storms. The data show that on Feb. 5-9, city trucks spent more time with their plows down on streets and highways outside their jurisdiction than on residential roads.

    I actually was surprised to see paczki at the Kroger in Grandview the other day. It took me by surprise, because I hadn’t seen them in a run-of-the-mill grocery store since I lived in the Chicago area. Then again, maybe I just wasn’t paying attention. I’m not sure who else sells Polish donuts in the area.

    Drillers snapping up rights leases in Ohio
    Gas, oil companies scramble in race to extract fuel from state’s shale


    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.

    Now, dozens of people clog the office every day and set up camp in the courthouse hallways to comb through documents that show who owns property in the eastern Ohio county.

    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.

    But critics say this type of drilling is an environmental nightmare that can poison the soil, water and air.
