Born on the banks (not literally) of the Mississippi River in Onalaska, WI (LaCrosse) in 1964. Raised on the banks of the Olentangy since 1968. Can almost hear Keith Jackson saying that last part in a way that only he can.

  • SPORTS MOMENT: Watching Buster Douglas knock out Mike Tyson on a giant rear projection tv in my parents house. Oh, and a little thing called the 2002 National Championship. That was stressful as hell, but worth the suffering.

Even more great information!  Thanks for taking the time to pass along all the details, I've made note of all of them. Handling the traffic is especially big, so 275 to Reed Hartman would work perfectly during rush hour. Appreciate your taking the time to suggest apartments as well.

Thanks for the tips!  I've been furiously copying all the names and locations and have found myself seriously hungry in the process. I can get along well in any new place as long as the food is good.

Now that's the kind of info that makes choosing where to live a whole lot easier. Thanks for taking the time to fill me in on all the details!  Any kind of traffic blows, so I'll avoid 275 if I can help it. I'll get back to you if I think of anything else!

Thanks for all that great info CB!  You gave me some really good ideas I'm looking into now. Thanks for the welcome, I'm looking forward to the experience.

I've driven through it and agree, it's unique and beautiful there. I think I saw the house that looks like it was built by a Hobbit there too. Really cool.

Yeah, just hanging out there for a day, it did feel a lot like UA to me as well. Thanks for the info STX, all good stuff!

Cool GB10, I appreciate the help. Yeah, lots of people recommending Mason which seems to have kind of a Dublin vibe. Is that accurate? Well if Dublin put all it's High School kids under one roof, which looks like what Mason does. 3300 kids seems massive!  Anyway, it seems to have the new development, shopping, good schools and like Dublin the only negative comments I read is "rich, spoiled white kids". Maybe just haters, but does Mason have that stigma in Cincinnati? 

Comment 10 May 2016

Thanks AZN!  I'm wondering of Mason may need a new High School if they keep growing. I've never seen a High School with 3350 kids! Still I guess it's pretty impressive to have such high ratings with such a massive enrollment.

Taxes are too high and now with a 4th High School to support? Too much. We lived there in the 80's when it was still "country" with one High School. How long have you been there? 

Comment 10 May 2016

Wow, that is weird!  So you can relate with the stress of such a move. I guess fate has decided that Cincy needs more Buckeye fans! Seems like there are some good school down in that part of town as well. We're gonna fill a dumpster or two with all the crap I've collected over the years.

We're fine with 2 BR, have one child and a dog. Rent, around $1,000.  Max commute...maybe 20 min?

Who ever would have imagined Tom Brady amounting to much? NFL GM's are placing much more emphasis now on face-to-face interviews to determine character, leadership and how guys are perceived by their teammates. That's why Kessler went before Cook and others. This kid seems to have all the intangibles that many QB's didn't have. A great TD to INT ratio shows that despite average arm strength, Cody plays a smart game and moves the chains. Tough kid too. After Manziel, it's no wonder that character was a big focus.
