Campus Partners seeks overhaul of 15th & High area

February 27, 2015
Campus Partners aims to rezone and “transform” 9 acres located around the intersection of 15th Avenue and High Street. The corporation is planning to rezone the area, currently split between commercial and residential zones, into a “commercial planned district,” Campus Partners president Amanda Hoffsis said Friday. That rezoning would allow for more freedom in planning, including a parking garage to serve the whole region and allow mixed use of buildings for retail, residential and office locations. All property owners within the area outlined for rezoning have signed onto the plan.

Accidental text from coach’s 4-year-old son among 47 Ohio State self-reported Big Ten, NCAA violations

March 1, 2015
Ohio State self-reported 47 minor Big Ten and NCAA rules violations in 2014, including one as the result of an accidental text sent by a football coach’s 4-year-old son. OSU wide receivers coach Zach Smith’s son picked up his father’s cell phone when a recruit called on May 27, and accidentally sent an automatic text message in return. The university sent a letter of education to the football coaches after the incident in regards to NCAA texting rules and phone security. The NCAA did not review the case as part of its interpretations philosophy, which allows for flexibility when reviewing rule violations. This information is the result of three separate… Read more

Concert review: MisterWives gives enthusiastic performance, but lacks in fine details

March 1, 2015
It was hard not to feel happy after MisterWives played in Columbus. The band’s songs inherently make you feel good, and it’s easy to jump around to the pop beats. It’s just happy music. When the six members came out to “Our Own House,” the song their tour was named after, it seemed like every head was nodding at the Saturday night show. The group put on a good performance, but it was MisterWives’ first headlining tour and in some ways, it showed. There were benefits of it being the band’s first top-tier tour. It seemed that the band members were genuinely grateful to be performing, and between songs they… Read more

Concert review: Hozier brings the power and the glory to the LC

February 28, 2015
It’s incredible how much things can change in six months. Back at the end of August, there’s a good chance you had never heard of Andrew Hozier-Byrne, known by his stage name of Hozier. Back then he was simply an Irish artist about to release his first LP — just another drop in the bucket that is the global music scene in the internet age. Friday night, however, was much different. The golden-voiced yet soft-spoken 24-year-old came to Columbus for the first time to sing to all those fans he’s gained in the past months — and the results were extraordinary. Backed by the success of one of the biggest… Read more

Opinion: Depression hurts; hope helps

February 25, 2015
A couple of years ago, I wrote a column for The Lantern detailing my experience with depression, and in doing so, I wrote it to have an ending — and a happy one, at that. With the help of friends, family and counseling, I was done with depression, I concluded. I did this for two reasons. First, a great essay recounting a life pitfall is best with a conclusion consisting of some sort of reflective proverb of hope and diligence. Second — and probably the most honest — I needed to believe that the lowest low of my life thus far was isolated to three months during my sophomore year… Read more

Letter to the editor: Chipotle lines represent inequality in American society

February 23, 2015
Letter to the editor: Many of you reading this have stood in line at Chipotle Mexican Grill. We know that its lines are notably long and somewhat intimidating. But how can these long lines act as such vivid metaphors for the state of inequality in our “equal opportunity” American society? The people at the front of the line who are close to getting, or have their burrito already, get cold when the doors are opened and a breeze rolls in. The breeze rolls in because the line stretches out the door and some waiting for a burrito in the back of the line are forced to stand outside. The problems… Read more

Russell exits early as Ohio State routs Nebraska, 81-57, with Phil Jackson looking on

February 26, 2015
With arguably the greatest basketball coach in recent memory watching courtside, the Ohio State men’s basketball team got back on track at the Schottenstein Center. The Buckeyes (20-8, 9-6) bounced back from back-to-back losses in emphatic fashion, defeating the Nebraska Cornhuskers, 81-57, Thursday night. Playing in OSU’s first home game in more than two weeks, freshman forward Jae’Sean Tate said it felt good to be back in front of a home crowd. “It definitely feels good to be home. It feels like we haven’t been home in forever. But I just think the team buckled down,” he said. “We needed this win and we just came together and started playing… Read more

‘The Snapchat Collaborative’ makes the temporary permanent

February 23, 2015
“It’s a classy event. There’s Franzia in the kitchen,” Michelle Kusold told attendees as they entered the opening of The Gallery’s exhibition “The Snapchat Collaborative.” “The Snapchat Collaborative” has been a year-long project for Kusold, a fourth-year in computer science & engineering, and her housemate Janelle Bouchard, a fourth-year in psychology. They took hundreds of screenshots of their friends’ “snaps” with a plan to make the normally temporal memories last more than 10 seconds. The two then paid for 4-by-6 inch matte prints of their favorites, 358 in total, and “curated” them into an exhibition. Kusold said they spent four days whittling the collection down from about 800 photos. The… Read more

Ohio State routs Nebraska in front of NBA coaching legend

February 26, 2015
At home once again, the Ohio State men’s basketball team bulldozed the Nebraska Cornhuskers by a final score of 81-57 on Thursday night, with 11-time NBA Champion head coach and current New York Knicks president, Phil Jackson, in attendance. While Jackson certainly made his presence known to OSU coach Thad Matta, Jae’Sean Tate seemed un-phased by the presence of the “Zen Master,” scoring a career high 22 points on the evening. The Buckeyes return to the friendly confines of the Schottenstein Center for another home game on Sunday against Purdue.… Read more
