HONOR RATCLIFF

There is a place called the dump in Columbus, it's right below the hospital, Luke if you walk out the hospital doors you are there. It's downtown, gas leaks are well known there, and the town I live in has a lot of crimes. Look on the bright side, Ohio is a healthy state, we grow most crops in the U.S. and we get the most fresh water in the U.S but there are more churches than EVER in Ohio. Grove city is pretty family friendly. We don't live in Grove city but my stepmom does. Ohio is home and Dayton is home to the wright brothers, and northern Ohio is where Jhon glenn is from!! We also have a lot of landmarks here and we are in the hall of fame.

City centered around The Ohio State University but with a lackluster downtown and surrounded by suburbia.

S****y weather and tons of traffic with road construction.

Columbus is an inviting city with friendly people. It's a safe place to visit with many things for families to do such as the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, COSI, and a wide variety of restaurants.

The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium is a wonderful place for a family to visit. There are also many wonderful restaurants and breweries downtown to enjoy. COSI, a science center, is another fun place for a family to visit.

Our school buildings are old and many do not have air conditioning. College football is immensely popular here, housing is plentiful, and there are a host of restaurants out there one can eat at.

The traffic on the major roads in the morning and afternoon and be rather bad and construction isn't helping. The weather can be hot in the summer and quite cold in the winter, but it's still a decent place in which to live.
