Kenton to LaRue (River Mile 213 - 195)

Kenton to LaRue (river mile 213 - 195)

Driving east out of Kenton on State Route 309, I find myself almost immediately back in farm country. County Road 144 veers off to the southeast and pretty much follows the course of the Scioto River. One unique aspect of the river at this part of its course is that it flows so close to the sub-continental divide – a ridge that divides the waters that flow south into the Ohio River from those that flow north into Lake Erie. This results in no permanent tributaries entering the Scioto from the north, but several adding their waters from the south. Wolf Creek, Jim Creek, Panther Creek and Wild Cat Run all flow north into to the Scioto over the course of the next several miles.

BRAINTRIP: Trying New Things

We’re always experimenting and trying new things at COSI

Today our experiment is in the marketing of COSI – we announced at 12 Noon today the “Brain Trip: A year of cerebral challenges and minds-on exhibits”. This was our way to announce the next four traveling exhibits for 2012-2013.

Betty Bryan Made COSI Special

She will be greatly missed

Great organizations are that way because of at least a few outstanding and impactful leaders. And those leaders are not necessarily the President & CEO.

COSI has been a great organization for a long time--known around the world for many achievements and innovations, one of the chief among them being our dedication to guest service. (My job in part, as CEO, is just not to screw up some of the key areas of achievement and positive culture we have at COSI ;-)

World Water Day at Whole Foods

A partnership between a science museum and a grocery store might not seem a likely pairing, but Whole Foods Market and COSI made for a great combination last Thursday. Whole Foods Market's Dublin location, a groundswell supporter of COSI's new WATER exhibition, welcomed COSI Team Members with our Science Spot traveling science kiosks for a special in-store appearance, and amazingly, donated 5% of the day's sales proceeds to COSI. That came to an amazing total of $4,937.90 that will be contributed to our mission.

Steve Jobs Death Is Our Loss Not Just For Today, But Importantly For Tomorrow

Jeremy, our COSI web master, feels that Thursday should have been a national day of mourning with the passing of Steve Jobs---I agree. But maybe for a different reason.

As I’ve noted in my blog before, I “grew up” professionally with Apple Computer, serving in various consultant capacities for and with Apple Computer. I have a great affinity for the company and the genius of the two Steve’s who founded it—Wozniak and Jobs. So even though it was clear that this day would be coming sooner than we wanted, having Steve Jobs pass away is something I’m feeling very personally.
