Columbus is Tops in Nation for Working Mothers

Working mothers have a friend in Columbus, Ohio, according to Forbes.com2012 Best Cities For Working Mothers” which named it the No. 1 city in the nation for working mothers.

There was definitely something in the “dynamics” that created an Ohio-bias with Cincinnati ranking fourth and Cleveland seventh. My guess would be the ability to earn good wages, access to doctors, and shorter commute times than you’d expect in larger cities.

The publication looked at:

  • violent crimes per 100,000 residents;
  • women’s annual earnings;
  • physicians per 100,000;
  • average commute;
  • expenditure per pupil; and
  • cost of child care.

So when it comes times to return to the work force and raise those kids, forget about San Diego or a place in the sun … head to Columbus, Ohio.

Germain Amphitheater to Become Extinct

Columbus Business First announced Wednesday that Polaris Centers of Commerce, the new owner of the old Germain Amphitheater, has announced it will begin demoloshing the main shell area this week.

Polaris Centers of Commerce recently purchased the area for $5.5 million which aired its last concert in 2007.

While the faiclity is being demolished plans for the land are still being debated. Plans could include a medial facility – which would be interesting considering Ohio Health Westerville facility is only minutes away – or a mixed-used blend of retail and residential.
