Ghostly Worthington History
Maureen McCabe, Columbus Ohio Real Estate (HER Realtors)

Ghostly Worthington history... Worthington College, The First Eclectic Medical College... in the middle west. 

Worthington College - Eclectic Medical CollegeThe medical college in Worthington is long gone. There is a plaque on the Kilbourne Building (the brick building on the Worthington Green.)   The plaque tells the history of Worthington College.  Well the plaque does not tell the story in as great a detail as the 2007 video by the Worthington Library and the Worthington Historical Society.

 

 

Happy Halloween 2012 Trick-or-Treat is today from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m in Worthington, like most of central Ohio.

 

Worthington -  Halloween

Worthington's Best Neighborhoods for Trick or Treat (2010)

Haunted Columbus - nothing in Worthington...

Did Worthington's ghost "Irwin" run a business out of town?  another video but it's just not the same since this location is not Fine Lines anymore, selling wrapping paper.

Evening Street Elementary Gets an A+
Maureen McCabe, Columbus Ohio Real Estate (HER Realtors)

Evening Street Elementary School gets an A+ for the 2011- 2012 school year!  Or the preliminary report card for Evening Street Elementary is  "Excellent with Distinction."  Excellent with Distinction is the highest grade or report card bestowed by the Ohio Department of Education.

Evening Street Elementary School sign

Evening Street Elementary back to school 2012  Ohio school report cards were released October 17, 2012.   School report cards are usually released just as students are returning to school the next year.   Worthington Back to School 2012

Evening Street Elementary School Report Card (preliminary)

The report cards available to Ohio schools from the Ohio Department of Education are:

  • Excellent with Distinction
  • Excellent
  • Effective
  • Continuous Improvement
  • Academic Watch
  • Academic Emergency

Is an "A+" the way to describe the rating from the Ohio Department of Education?  To use grades* that most of us are more familiar with:

  • A+ is  Excellent with Distinction
  • A is Excellent
  • B is Effective
  • C is Continuous Improvement
  • D is Academic Watch
  • F is  Academic Emergency

* The Columbus Dispatch used the familiar letter score in the headline of the October 18, 2012 article about the preliminary report cards finally being released.  There is a link to the Columbus Dispatch in Central Ohio school districts preliminary report cards for the 2011 - 2012 school year. but not to that headline. Darn.  There is a quote of the article headline.  One of the local TV newscast referred to an "Excellent with Distinction" report card as "an A+" on October 17, 2012

The Worthington City School District received a preliminary "Excellent with Distinction" report card. 

The Worthington City School District site says "Preliminary Results Indicate Excellent with Distinction" for the Worthington City School Disctrict  and concludes "ODE will not publish the Local Report Cards until the investigation by the Auditor of State is concluded..."

Evening Street Elementary School students

The Worthington City School District site has maps which show current attendance area for elementary, middle and high schools in the school district.    Evening Street Elementary School is at 885 Evening Street, Worthington, Ohio 43085.

Patriot Day in Worthington is in remberance of the events of September 11, 2001 in the United States.

I believe Worthington has had a scheduled event on the Village Green since September 11, 2002.  I have attended every Patriot Day except the ten year anniversary, last year in 2011.

Worthington Art Festival 2012
Maureen McCabe, Columbus Ohio Real Estate (HER Realtors)

The big question with the Worthington Art Festival today is will it rain? 

Worthington Arts Festival 2012

The artists booths are spread over the Worthington Village Green.

I wish I could have gone Saturday. 

The photo is just before noon today.  The sky is gray.  The forecast calls for rain today. I heard on the radio that  pop up showers are most likely between noon and three o'clock. 

The Old Worthington Business Association's site calls the event  "The Olde Worthington Art Festival"  and also refers to it as   "Art on the Green."  The art festival on the Green is a yearly  event.

The Worthington Art Festival is a juried art show.

The festival ends at 5:00 today.

Worthington Farmers Market - June 9, 2012
Maureen McCabe, Columbus Ohio Real Estate (HER Realtors)

The Worthington Farmers Market on June 9, 2012 is part of a Farmer's Market Hop!

May 2012 Worthington Farmers Market

I believe the Farmer's Market Hop is a first time event in central Ohio.  Eventbrite says:

"From the North Market to Clintonville to Worthington and markets in between… this is the hop for anyone who wants to improve their food health while promoting local businesses and farmers.

AND… your celebrity host Tricia Wheeler, Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of Edible Columbus, will serve as your guide to all the best secrets of each market."

I have another commitment Saturday morning so can not go on this tour... someone tell me the best secrets of the Worthington Farmer's Market? Please!  

The Farmers (or Farmer's) Market Hop starts at the North Market, then visits the Clintonville Market and "last the best"  the Worthington at the end?   Are there secret markets in between?  

House Wine in Worthington is involved in the Farmers Market Hop.  On Facebook page this morning House Wine said:

"we look forward to hosting Food Hop and Edible Columbus editor Tricia Wheeler during their tour of our market and others around town" 

Worthington Farmers Market

My photos are from May, Worthington is more green now  and the fresh produce is coming in earlier this year with all the warm weather.
