Nightcap: Kind words for Jeni's, beekeeping on the rise in Columbus
We're almost there! Just one more day stands between you and the weekend. We've rounded up a short selection of stories to catch up on and three events to kick off your weekend.
Fans, business leaders and small business owners alike stood by Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams following the company's mandatory recall. People from all over offered words of support and encouragement as Jeni's moves forward.
Charles Wince has been working as an artist in Columbus since the early '80s. He is perhaps best known for his large-scale paintings, and his own home in Harrison West is no exception to this.
