Well, I better get this out of the way before I post. Okay folks, I will be posting photos from the protest going on at the statehouse. I am doing this so people can see what's going on. I do not have an agenda here and I'm not trying to push one. I'm just observing what's going on. Do NOT ask me to state my opinion on the protest because I will say it's none of your darn business. If you wish to comment, PLEASE keep it clean and civil. This is my thread and I will NOT tolerate BS, or name calling (Nazi, Commie, Socialist Scum...) from ANYONE. I don't care if you are a Democrat or a Republican. I'm not in the mood for anyones crap and if you act a fool, I will let a moderator know and I will ask him to delete your comments! If ANY of this is unclear, please let me know! We're all adults here so lets act like it.


Now, On to the photos.

Feb 22, 2011. Part One























































More to come later. Remember, KEEP THE COMMENTS CLEAN & CIVIL!

I like your coverage of the protest.
It makes the city so alive and I like the humors on some of the writings in the placards
they make me laugh.
and the protesters are in good mood, some are smiling.

Dublin, Ohio. May 5th, 2011. Part One

Dublin is a city in Franklin, Delaware, and Union counties in the U.S. state of Ohio. The population was 41,751 at the 2010 census. Dublin is a suburb of Columbus, Ohio. Approximately 57,000 people live within the Dublin school district.[citation needed]

Each year in late May or early June, the city hosts the Memorial Tournament, a stop on golf's PGA Tour. Consequently, a large number of golf aficionados choose to make Dublin their home. There are also several other golf courses in Dublin. The Riviera Golf Club is home to the American-Italian Golf Association. Tartan Fields Golf Club, which hosted the LPGA's Wendy's Championship for Children from 2002 through 2006, is also in Dublin. Dublin also has a public golf course financed by the city, as well as the Nicklaus-designed Country Club at Muirfield.

Other annual events include the 4th of July music event, a St. Patrick's Day parade, and the Dublin Irish Festival, which is one of America's largest Irish festivals.

History

Although its earliest settlements date back to 1802, the village that came to be known as Dublin didn't begin to take shape until the arrival of the Sells family of Huntingdon, Pennsylvania. Brothers Peter and Benjamin Sells purchased 400 acres (1.6 kmē) of land on the west banks of the Scioto River as a gift for their brother John. In 1808, John Sells brought his family to the region, and by 1810 he had begun to survey lots for the new village with his partner, an Irish gentleman named John Shields. According to historians, Shields is responsible for naming the town after his birthplace of Dublin, Ireland.

"If I have the honor conferred upon me to name your village, with the brightness of the morn, and the beaming of the sun on the hills and dales surrounding this beautiful valley, it would give me great pleasure to name your new town after my birthplace, Dublin, Ireland."

In 1970, Dublin was still a small town with only 681 residents. However, the construction of Interstate 270 facilitated a population boom, spearheaded by the acquisition of major corporate headquarters such as Ashland Inc and Wendy's International. In addition, the growth of the Muirfield Village Golf Club and its residential subdivision attracted a large number of affluent citizens to the rapidly growing suburb. Dublin was officially declared a city in 1987, after reaching a population of 5,000 residents.

As part of this boom Dublin significantly expanded its area, annexing parts of both Washington Township and Perry Township.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dublin,_Ohio

This is just my own personal opinion, but as far as I'm concerned, Dublin is one of the LEAST impressive suburbs of Columbus. Hell, up until 1970, it only had a population of 681. Now it has over 41,000 residents. And most of them live in your typical sprawling subdivisions. Even "Old Dublin" is really nothing more than a glorified village. One thing is for sure, I may work there, but I will never live there, EVER!

We begin our tour at the Dublin Cemetery on Bridge Street a.k.a. 33/161.





















in an attept to make "Old Dublin" feel more like a proper town, there has been a consider amount of infill. Most of it has been built in a style which imitates what one might have seen many decades ago in small communities throughout Ohio. It's sort a country version of what one would see in New Albany with it's faux colonials.



In Dublin we like to celebrate all things Irish. Which is sort of odd considering the first families to live in this area were mostly Germans. Hence the reason for Dublin-Coffman (Yes, it is a incorrect spelling) High School.



Old fire station

More to come later.......

A quick walk through OTE. May 6th, 2011.

Oak and 18th Street.





These businesses are all pretty new. I suspect that before the decade is out, these abandoned apartments will be renovated.

Hoffman Avenue







This home is one of dozens which have already been renovated.





This home appears to be in the middle of a renovation.



a look down Madison Avenue.



Broad Street









The Hammond Center. Formerly Buckeye Insurance.

Ohio Avenue



A string of empty homes. Again, I feel pretty sure that these homes will see new life before the end of the decade.

The end

The end.
