It's the number one zoo in the country and that was before the dinos came. This summer Columbus Zoo visitors will be treated to a whole new display with animatronic dinosaurs. The Columbus Dispatch has a great story on the arrival of a 7,000 pound T-rex.
Yesterday was move-in day for the 25 creatures that will make up the animatronic-dinosaur display at the zoo this summer. All morning, the figures were lifted off 53-foot-long tractor-trailers after a three-day trip from Billings Productions in Allen, Texas.
Front-loader operator Roger Van Horn of Smoot Construction said picking up dinosaurs was a new experience. "Most of our stuff is kind of boring in comparison, like lumber and block," he said.

If you've been anywhere near the news in the city, you've heard the story ofÂ Carla Hale, a gay teacher at Bishop Watterson High School who was recently fired after her partner's name appeared in Hale's mother's obituary. A complaint was lodged by a parent and Watterson - a Catholic high school - dismissed Hale. Hale maintains it was because of her sexual orientation, the diocese maintains it was because of her "quasi-spousal relationship" with another woman that violates the church's moral teaching.
Either way the story has made national news with commentators, civil rights activists and religious scholars weighing in on the whole situation. Even the hacker group Anonymous has reportedly vowed to get into the backgrounds of the diocese. The latest news is the diocese's Bishop has broken his silence on the issue -read more about this on-going story at the Columbus Dispatch( http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/local/2013/04/30/bishop-responds-watterson-teacher.html) and weigh in with your opinion in the comments section. Please, keep it civil folks!
There are people who say "There's nothing to do in Columbus" to which I always reply - you haven't been looking for something to do. It's amazing the amount of things that go on in the city that appeal to every taste and interest. Check out some of my favorite things to do here in the city:
