Landowner Emily Johnson looks at a brush pile after firefighters finished spraying Class-A foam on the smoldering debris left over from a fire on October 24, 2010. Johnson’s husband, Pat was burning brush in a corner of his land when an ember was carried by the wind about a hundred yards to a neighbor’s corn field. The fire is estimated to have burned between 20 and 30 acres of land, and involved efforts from six tanker units and nine grass fighter units, all from seven departments within the area.

Jeff Boyer pedals his bike down W Broad St. with his 2-year-old daughter, Angel Boyer, riding comfortably on his shoulders on October 23, 2010. “I’ve been doing this since 11th Avenue, but she didn’t start getting heavy until we got down here,” said Boyer, who was headed home to the Wilson Road area after picking the girl up from her mother.

Never have shot golf before, and last week’s high school state tournament wasn’t exactly the way to break in to the sport. The photo request just said “top finishers among area teams,” which is hard to do when I don’t know how big the “area” is. Luckily, a couple teams had Columbus in the name, but that didn’t do a whole lot of good since I was also shooting “area teams” for the paper in Cleveland. And I was shooting boys AND girls, who were playing on two intermingling courses at the OSU university club.

Ashely Meyer, of German Village, digs around in her purse for change to feed the meter along Spring street before heading to Barrio Tapas Lounge on October 19, 2010. “I didn’t find any so I hope I don’t get a ticket,” said Meyer. “I’m meeting some friends I haven’t seen in, like, three months, so I guess it’s worth it.”
