columbus: Columbus Trick-or-Treat 2012 - 10/14/12 02:26 AM
Columbus, Ohio Trick-or-Treat is October 31, 2012!  ... and Dublin, Gahanna, Grandview Heights, Hilliard, Lewis Center,  New Albany, Powell, Upper Arlington, Westerville, Worthington and more are "Trick-or-Treating" on October 31, 2012.
Back in February 2009 the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC)  decreed the future of Trick-or-Treat throughout central Ohio.  All central Ohio communities do NOT always 'Trick-or-Treat" on Halloween.  When Halloween falls on a weekend night the MORPC recommended "Trick -or-Treat" or "Beggar's Night" might be the night before Halloween or a couple of nights before Halloween. 2012 Trick-or-Treat list seems to bear that out.

columbus: You say "sanitarium" I say "sanatorium" - 04/14/11 07:42 PM
"You say tomato...   
I say tomahto....
Lets Call The Whole Thing Off "
Wikipedia says:
"A sanatorium (also spelled sanitorium and sanitarium) is a medical facility for long-term illness, most typically associated with treatment of tuberculosis (TB) before antibiotics. A distinction is sometimes made between "sanitarium" (a kind of health resort, as in the Battle Creek Sanitarium) and "sanatorium" (a hospital)."
The Wikipedia page needs a citation so don't go believing this is gospel.
In old movies I always got confused about what was wrong with people who were in "sanitariums" or  "sanatoriums" Tuberculosis? Or insanity?  I wondered if one of … (5 comments)

The Mystery of the Missing Cornerstone
The cornerstone of the Flint School disappeared in March 2011 according to the  Worthington Suburban News, (SNP.)
In "Flint School now just a memory" Bret Liebendorfer of (Suburban Newspapers online) wrote: 
"A memorial was to include the well-known pillars, but they were pushed over by vandals; similarly, the school's 800-pound cornerstone also was to be included, but it was stolen."

columbus: Why can't we find this Westerville home? - 01/21/11 01:03 AM

Why can't we find this Westerville home?
The  Worthington Highlands neighborhood is in the Columbus Corporation Limit (in the City of Columbus) and it is in the Worthington City School District and it has a Westerville Ohio 43081 mailing address.
