Here’s a new kind of “Where’s Waldo” for you: Can you spot the Ohio State students who might actually be headed to class?

“Nothing away from the other batboys, but we love Jake,” Hilliard resident Melinda Brant, 35, said as she stood in line for his “autograph” with her young son.
The golden retriever, who stole the spotlight at Sunday’s Columbus Clippers game, delivers the game ball to the pitcher, retrieves bats, and takes bottled water to the umpires between innings.
He will attend about 30 games in all this year, including a few at Progressive Field, home of the Cleveland Indians — his first and only major league gigs.

Dayton, Ohio native Jonathan Winters died yesterday evening at his Montecito, Calif., home of natural causes, said Joe Petro III, a longtime family friend. Petro said Winters was surrounded by family and friends.
In the 1950s, before he moved to New York City, the comedian performed on WBNS-10TV in Columbus as “Johnny Winters.” In this WBNS file photo, a young Winters is shown making a pitch for Gambrinus beer.

Bet you didn’t know April 11 was a Columbus holiday.
Once upon a time (in 1914, when these ads ran in The Columbus Dispatch), April 11 was “bock day” — “bock” being a type of ale. Learn more about it in the Dispatch’s “Look Back” blog!
