Seven Oaks Ooops... is the name Ozem Gardner Way just a way to say "I'm sorry"? I reposted 'Worthington's  Seven Oaks  this day in history'  to my oldest blog Discover Columbus (a RealTown blog not to be confused with Discover Columbus OH... another blog by a similar name..confused?)  
A resident of Ozem Gardner Way shared this story in a comment:

The street in the Seven Oaks subdivision named Ozem Gardner Way would have been, could have been... named Laurel Oak Drive if the house movers had not dropped the house and broke it?
