    Tuesday Sep 11 | The Columbus Dispatch

    Sarah Breidenstein knelt in front of the old and worn headstone, and she couldn't help but wonder what story lay under the decades of dirt and grime that covered it. So she sprayed and scrubbed and, little by little, a name became clear: Charlie W. Thomas, a black soldier from North Carolina who served with the 350th labor battalion in the segregated U.S. Army of World War I. After Breidenstein had finished cleaning that particular stone in Section 71 of Green Lawn Cemetery on the city's Southwest Side, she stood and practically whispered into the morning's chilly wind, "Well, Charlie W. Thomas, thank you for your service."

  6. Proposed changes to First Responders Park in Westerville elicit emotional responsesRead the original story w/Photo

    Wednesday Sep 5 | The Columbus Dispatch

    For many Westerville residents, the question is less about whether the city should build a memorial to two slain police officers, but how and where it should be done. The city's current plan calls for a sweeping, $1 million redesign of First Responders Park at 374 W. Main St. As part of an overhaul that would more than double the 8-year-old park's size, a memorial waterfall would be built to honor Anthony Morelli and Eric Joering, the two officers who were shot to death while responding to a domestic violence call Feb. 10. Their names would be placed next to that of David Theisen, a Westerville firefighter who died in a 1998 fire in Crooksville in Perry County.

  18. Editorial: Ruling shows gun regulation tough to enactRead the original story w/Photo

    Jul 17, 2018 | The Columbus Dispatch

    But a Franklin County Common Pleas Court ruling on Friday underscored - again - that it never has been, and probably never will be, easy to enact reasonable restrictions at any level when it comes to regulating firearms in the United States. In this heightened sensitivity and hyper political environment on firearms, city of Columbus officials are rightfully pleased that Judge David Cain upheld at least part of a package of gun ordinances passed by Columbus City Council in May. The judge ruled the city can disarm and file misdemeanor charges against those who carry guns after being convicted of domestic violence and other crimes. 9 comments
