12 West, Our Newest Downtown Eatery

Just read a blog about this new restaurant in downtown Delaware at 12 West William street. Definitely seems from the photos of the various dishes on the menu as a place to check out soon with my wife. Although some businesses have had a rough go of it during these past five years we’re finally … Continue reading

Lights Out in D-Town

Last evening was an event like most of us have never seen before. About 6:45 pm the power went out all over the City, County, and parts of adjoining counties. Since daylight savings time starts this weekend, sunset already is early. About 45 minutes into the power outage we called relatives about what the range … Continue reading

Shifting Sands

During the past two weeks here in my hometown Delaware, Ohio the brick and mortar facie has changed. Our beloved independent bookstore “The Beehive” have closed their doors for good. Albeit rather abruptly, the closing leaves more questions than answers. Not even the manager got any notice of the decision until the public was told, … Continue reading

For Love of The Mambo

I’ve previously posted links to my favorite Band Mambo Legends Orchestra. While listening to them tonight I found another treasure they’ve given us through their dedication and Love of Music, Knowledge, and Education. There are 21st century musicians at the Crane School of Music at CUNY who posed the question as one young man put … Continue reading

OWU History at Our Fingertips

They Say that lightning rarely strikes twice in the same area, but our own Ohio Wesleyan University has done exactly that. This week I saw an article in the “Connect to OWU” section of their website that unveils a new asset available for use at the Beeghley Library. OWU History At Our Fingertips is the … Continue reading

RealClearPolicy – Online Sales Taxes Done Right

As the Online Sales Tax commentary gets more attention from various state governments some of their ideals and even drafted legislation leave much to be desired. During the last two weeks four states have introduced and in some cases passed legislation directing their state’s small businesses to begin collecting online sales taxes in direct violation … Continue reading

Tonight’s Budget Buster

Just about 15 minutes ago I topped off my gas tank at a local United Dairy Farmers Station here in Delaware, Ohio. I paid $3.55 per gallon since I heeded GasBuddy.com’s warning about the imminent price spike at 6:00 pm this evening to an expected average of $3.89 per gallon for regular and higher for … Continue reading
