Over the weekend of June 16 of this year, barbershop owner Al Edmondson and other members of the Columbus community attempted to create a 24-hour ceasefire.

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Over the weekend of June 16 this year, barber shop owner Al Edmondson and other members of the Columbus community attempted to create a 24-hour ceasefire in the town, urging people to lay down their guns and find love instead.

Spread across the wall of Edmondson’s Barber Shop is a mural of the Mount Vernon community from years past. He said it reminded him of the unity and peace that once reigned in the neighborhood.

The ceasefire ended shortly after it began around 12:30 p.m. Saturday when Columbus police said a person was found shot dead at Circle K on Schrock Road.

Hours later, around 4:30 a.m., police found two people with gunshot wounds in the western part of town. Both were taken to Grant Medical Center.

Just after 8:50 p.m. the same day, police said a person was shot on Fairwood Avenue.

“Maybe I should have posted more. Maybe I should have put more radio ads in there,” Edmondson said.

Edmondson said most of the shootings he hears about involve young people. He said more accountability was needed.

“Parents need to stop being friends with their children and really become parents. Tell those young men and women out there that ‘we love you’ and let them know there is another way to solve your problems,” he said.

Edmondson said he knew the end of gun violence would not be resolved overnight, but he would not abandon his community.

Edmondson said next year he will ensure there is a 24-hour ceasefire.

“We have a long way to go, and we need everyone on board,” Edmondson said.

“It’s pop and there’s no defense / Silly, it’s dumb, it’s just pretend / Comes in waves, it has nothing to say / And if you ask me, it’s better that way.”

“This Is Pop 2”, by !!!, written by Nic Offer and Joel Ford.

The tall, lanky Nic Offer took the stage at the Rumba Cafe last night without his band and nothing but an old-fashioned transistor radio in his hand, saying that when he came to a city he liked to listen to the radio local. After streaming and rejecting several selections, he came up with something much better, his band’s recorded rhythm track!!! (usually pronounced “chk chk chk”) performing what could serve as the band’s manifesto, “This Is Pop 2”. Soon the three musicians who played on the recording took to the stage and seamlessly supplanted the band.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) – Central Ohio is facing another dangerously hot day, with daytime highs in the mid-90s that look like 105-110°. The heat will continue Thursday with temperatures in the low 90s, and into the mid 80s on Friday.

In addition to city cooling centers open Wednesday and Thursday, Ohioans have another way to beat the heat: Swimply, an online marketplace for private pool rentals. Think of Swimply like Airbnb, but for pools.

COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) – In case you haven’t heard or seen all the action in Uptown Columbus last week…scenes from the action thriller, “Cash Out,” shot right here in Fountain City… With John Travolta and Kristen Davis.

From last-minute costume shopping to hotel and restaurant stays, the production crew and cast of more than 100 bring local businesses a boost in sales over the two weeks of filming.

News 9 frontman Ashlee Williams spoke to a local restaurant owner who said she got the catering job for the next few weeks and it was an unforgettable experience.

John Travolta is in town! He’s shooting scenes for the upcoming action thriller “Cash Out.” We’re told it’s a bank robbery gone wrong, with crews setting up production in and around Synovus Corporate on Broadway.

As recently as Sunday, Columbus police were extras in the film, with uniform badges and car logos changed to “Seattle Police” as it appears parts of the film are based in Seattle, Washington.

At the same time, the Fountain City benefits considerably from the crew of 115 men.

Niki Gedroic, owner of Smoke Bourbon and BBQ and Vertigo Kitchen, says event catering isn’t new to her team…but catering two meals a day for a big production is a check mark on her list. things to do.

“What they do for our community literally brings in millions of dollars,” Gedrioc said. “I know they shop here, I’ve sent them to Sam’s, other local restaurants to film their needs for that. They make money. They bring awareness to our community.

Uptown Inc. President Ed Wolverton explained that Columbus community leaders have worked hard over the past five years to move our motion picture industry forward, bringing Atlanta production and putting Columbus on the map. the cinema.

“They definitely also need contractors to build some things. Elections, handles and other behind-the-scenes productions that set cameras and sound booms,” Wolverton said. “That’s another group of people who can often be employed in our film industry.”

As many streets and parking spaces are blocked at this time, Uptown Inc is focused on managing parking and access to local businesses.

“When they’re filming, they try to keep people from skimming through the film as it’s happening,” Wolverton said. “Once they are done with a particular take, they reopen. It’s important for our small businesses so people can still access it.

“The cast and crew were very polite,” Gedroic said. “It was exciting for everyone to catch a glimpse of John Travolta and Kristen Davis.”

The busiest shooting days: from Friday to last Monday. Wolverton with Uptown told us the lack of parking and road closures along Broadway will ease after Monday.

Filming ends on June 24.

Cash is king when home equity has swelled and stock market returns are looking good (at least until mid-May, that was). So that means investors are plentiful, and repeat mortgage buyers are finding it even harder to land the home they love, even as interest rates rise.

Here’s The Dispatch’s coverage of home sales, the area’s affordable housing crisis, resources for homeowners, and insight into life on the luxury home circuit.

Columbus’ Crazy Real Estate Market

Richard and Bosco Duarte found their home in Clintonville after being outbid on another home in the highly competitive market.

When you combine a growing demand for homes as the Columbus area population grows with a limited inventory of homes for sale, you get the crazy real estate market we’ve seen since 2020. Buyers compete, jumping into a contract just minutes after seeing a place, offering tens of thousands of dollars above the asking price, forgoing inspections and being willing to pay even more than an appraiser says the home is worth. (Readers, please note that real estate professionals do not recommend some of these practices, but acknowledge that they are the number of buyers winning deals in this feeding frenzy.)

COLUMBUS – Beaver Local senior Kodi Kinsey left the track and field meet with her second medal and a smile on Saturday.

“At the start of the season I wanted to get to the state in two events and I did,” she says.

Kinsey finished sixth in the Division II women’s long jump with a leap of 17 feet 2 1/2 at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. He came after finishing third last year.

“I was hoping to go a little further, but I landed my second best jump of the season” she says. “There is much better competition today than last year.”

Kinsey knew where she stood, entering the state meet with the 10th best jump.

“Oh yes,” she says. “As soon as they sent them, I was on it.”

Marengo Highland junior Juliette Laracuente repeated as the state champion with a 19-5 3/4 leap, 2 inches off the meet record.

“It also helps to have riders in front of you,” said Kinsey. “I was the last jumper of the first flight and that helped me.”

Marlington senior Ariana Painter was fifth (17-3 3/4) and Minerva senior Abby Wheeler was 11th (16-7).

Kinsey warmed up after placing 15th in the 100-meter hurdles preliminaries on Friday.

“I’m here in the hurdles and the competition is much better than what I’ve seen all year,” she says. “You do what you can.”

Kinsey — the third girl from Beaver Local to graduate in school history — has shown she belongs on the biggest stage in the state.

Status Notes

• Kinsey plans to join his sister, Teddi, on the Youngstown State University track team next season.

• Kinsey’s brother, Zane, transferred to high school in Toronto for his first year. Zane was a member of both Beavers relay teams that ranked stateside last year.

He had to sit out the last half of the track season due to OHSAA transfer rules.

“It was sad to see him because he was doing so well inside,” said Kodi.

Zane was at the state meeting this weekend.

“He’s here to support” said Kodi.
