    It depends on your employer. I worked at Nationwide in the downtown office and was able to buy a monthy COTA pass pre-tax through WageWorks. I had options to have it deducted from my pay and mailed to my house every month.

    There is a convenience store in Plaza 3. It is not just for Nationwide employees. Anyone can walk in and use the store, cookie shop, florist and coffee place. They are all outside of the ID badge required areas. I think since these are all tucked inside the building everyone assumes they are for Nationwide only. None of them are street facing and some are on the skywalk level.

    Yeah I don’t believe there will be a lot of fans from other teams like we have seen in the regular season. Here is why….

    1. Season ticket holders can purchase additional tickets per game (up to 6 additonal I believe) and were allowed to start purchasing Wednesday morning. I bought 4 tickets to each game even though I only have 2 season tickets.
    2. Yesterday Nationwide employees were allowed to purchase tickets in advance of this mornings public sale since they are the major sponsor of the CBJ
    3. Public tickets on sale today are limited to people with an Ohio billing address on their credit card
    4. The CBJ still are fighting for seeding. We don’t know if we will play the Pens, Bruins or Rangers. So those fans from other teams are not going to buy CBJ tickets if there is a chance we might not even play them.

    With the Devils losing in regulation last night the CBJ only need 4 points in the next 4 games to clinch a playoff spot. They could clinch as early as Wednesday this week!

    Will it have special branding that sets it apart from all the other buses?

    The cop steered toward the right to try and get around the car on the backside. The offending car stopped in the middle of the intersection instead of continuing through the intersection. Had the car continued forward the cop would have missed the passenger compartment.

    That is what I see when I watch the video too. This is a very unfortunate event and I feel bad for that family. I’m just not sure there is anything more to read into.

    Have you watched the dash cam video? Beyond failing to slow significantly from his reported 80+ mph approach speed to the intersection, when the car comes into the intersection the cruiser veers markedly to the right and heads straight for the car.

    This would not be unusual in a vehicle without anti-lock brakes, where a skid might produce this attitude under straight-line braking. Pretty unusual to see a modern car skid this way under braking, if in fact the officer even attempted to brake (the verbiage I see so far is only [tried to avoid]).

    There’s no doubt the death car driver is at fault, in case folks are reading otherwise here. He had no business being on the road the moment he packed his car with unbelted passengers and rolled.

    But I believe the officer played a significant role in making everybody in that car dead.

    How would you react if you were driving through a green light and someone pulled right in front of you at the last second? I don’t see anything wrong with what the officer did. He could of veered right assuming the driver would keep moving and not come to a dead stop in the middle of the intersection.

    I think the airport to downtown is a good start. COTA is setup to route pretty much everyone to downtown. You could take COTA downtown and then the train to the airport to skip on airport parking. Cost would definitely be cheaper then a cab or parking fees. I would use that.

    I take the rapid line in Cleveland from the airport to downtown pretty frequently even though I’m not flying. My wife’s family lives in North Olmsted. You’d be surprised how many people park at the station and ride it into downtown to go out for the night, sporting events, etc. It’s easier then dealing with traffic, parking, etc.

    There is a place in Grandview on Third Ave. close to Grandview Ave. that I go which has haircuts for $10. There is always a small sign in the grass on Third when it is open. Rose Agreste (might be spelling the last name wrong). I have been going to her for about 4 years now.

    I’m very excited about this! I have been to the original in Munich and the one in Cincy and have to say Cincy is a pretty accurate representation. It will definitely draw and it a “good get” for Grandview yard and NRI

    Took care of business like they needed to last night. Bob looked good and Gaborik is off to a great start (5 pts in 3 games). Big test on Saturday against Boston

    When I first looked yesterday morning there were about 180 deals left. This morning there are only 38 so they are selling quickly.
