With harsh cold and snow forecast for much of the state in the next few days, officials in Ohio’s Department of Aging are urging precautions for older people who could be at increased risk of weather-related problems.
Cooper Stadium Moves Into Private Ownership
It took four years, but Franklin County Commissioners have signed off on a plan to sell Cooper Stadium.
The four-year long process was finalized yesterday. Arshot Investment Corporation plans to spend between $30 and $40 million to turn the Mound Street property into a racetrack and automotive center.
The $3.4 million sale had been help up over noise studies and other wrangling over having a racetrack near the densely-packed Franklinton neighborhood.
Some residents remain staunchly opposed to the track.
