History of High Street documented in photographic journey

September 18, 2014
Caution tape and construction sites bordering High Street shows the ever-changing landscape along one of Columbus’ main stretches. One art exhibit, though, is putting a temporary pause on the progress. That “hallway” is High Street, and “25 ON HIGH: A Photographic Journey” is an upcoming exhibit at the Urban Arts Space that documents the faces, landmarks and overlooked affairs of the street, according to the press release. The pictures in the show range from images of rural farmers and food markets to photos of university students and the hustle and bustle of downtown Columbus. The exhibit is an update on the documentary “High Street,” a WOSU TV production released in… Read more

Ohio State women’s soccer looks toward trip to Penn State

September 18, 2014
Following a week of practice, the Buckeyes seem to have replaced the bad taste in their mouths left from a late-game collapse against Purdue. OSU (4-4-0, 1-1-0) enters Friday’s game at No. 8 Penn State (6-1-0, 2-0-0) with a chance to regain momentum and finish its three-game road swing on the winning side. “We’re excited about it,” OSU coach Lori Walker said. “It’s always a tough road trip since it’s a lot of time on the bus, but it’s a single game this weekend so we’ll get a little bit of rest afterwards.” The trip from OSU to Penn State comes in at about 325 miles. Putting together their “flashes… Read more

Album review: Ryan Adams’ self-titled release nods to styles of Springsteen, Fleetwood Mac

September 18, 2014
Tom Petty might have put a new record out in July, but in listening to Ryan Adams’ newest, self-titled album, you’d get the impression that Petty came out with another one. And that’s no problem. Country/rock songwriter Adams crafts a series of touching, shimmering and swaggering songs on his 14th album in 15 years and his third release of new music this year alone. Prior to listening to this record, I knew very little about Adams. I’d known that he had a noted feud with former Chicago Sun-Times music critic Jim DeRogatis (DeRogatis even posted Adams’s scathing voicemail from it online) and that he’d even had bad blood with one… Read more

September 18, 2014
Two men forced a Red Roof Inn clerk to the ground and stole an undisclosed amount of money in an aggravated robbery near Ohio State’s campus Friday morning, a Columbus Division of Police press release states.

Letter to the editor: Ohio State won’t move forward without Jonathan Waters

September 18, 2014
Letter to the editor: An open letter to President Michael Drake President Drake, I wrote you a letter back in July, after Jonathan Waters was wrongfully terminated from his position as director of marching and athletic bands. In response, I received a canned statement thanking me for my concern and effectively writing me off, like everyone else who wrote in to express their outrage over this situation. Despite the best efforts of major benefactors of Ohio State, concerned students, alumni and members of the media, you have continued to ignore anyone who disagrees with your firing of Mr. Waters. I can understand your reluctance to face people who might disagree… Read more

Letter to the editor: Marching band hurt by Ohio State’s mistakes

September 18, 2014
Letter to the editor: The administration at Ohio State wants to send the message that it will not tolerate sexual harassment. Good! Every fair-minded person finds this kind of behavior reprehensible: someone in a position of power mistreats another who is left powerless to defend against the attack and who is expected to be powerless to pursue recourse later. In fact, I find this behavior morally objectionable whether or not the aggressor’s motives or intentions are sexual in nature. How did the powerful at OSU decide to send their message? They made a big public splash by releasing a report of a ridiculously flawed “investigation” that painted thousands of former… Read more

OSU official: ‘We didn’t do a good job last year’ handling Mirror Lake jump

September 18, 2014
Even though Ohio State administrators and students might be finding common ground in regards to university intervention into the beloved Mirror Lake jump, one OSU official said the recurring problem of alcohol intoxication could shut down the event. “It’s alcohol that’s the problem,” said Jay Kasey, senior vice president for Administration and Planning. “We are here today because our new president said this is an important thing, alumni agree and we should have the jump. We’re trying to do the best we can, but if it completely gets out of hand, it will be shut down.” Kasey joined other OSU officials at a panel on Wednesday evening during the second… Read more

Notice released after reported rape sparks questions about reason for delay, concern

September 18, 2014
When a public safety notice was released Monday about a rape reported Sunday, it prompted questions about the reason for the delay. Those questions remain, since the suspect was identified and apprehended before the notice was ever sent — the first time in at least three years when that’s been the case. Public safety notices, after all, are issued when a crime occurs that’s considered a concern or continuing threat to campus. And because the suspect had been apprehended, it’s unclear what continuing threat or concern prompted the notice’s issuing after the rape, which reportedly occurred early Sunday in a North Campus residence hall. The University Police chief, meanwhile, referred… Read more

University police have a new big dog on campus

September 18, 2014
The newest officer on the Ohio State University Police force doesn’t carry a gun. She doesn’t need handcuffs or a bulletproof vest. Her only gear is a bowl, a leash and her nose. Rita the K-9 is a German Shepherd and the newest member of University Police. As an officer, she’s tasked with one job and one job only: finding bombs. “Rita has one responsibility and that is to find explosive odor. That’s her single purpose,” said Joanna Shaul, University Police officer and Rita’s handler. “She just has one job and we just want her to be the best possible that she can be.” Although Rita only has one job,… Read more
