“Please, please, don’t let my child out the door,”Tasha Morgan thought. “In the open air, a bullet has no name.”

Morgan’s daughter and her classmates at Liberty Elementary School missed getting caught in the middle of gunfire by minutes. Teachers put the school on lockdown after a man and a teenager were shot at 3:35 p.m. — dismissal time — during a fight just outside the Columbus school at Whitlow Road and Paladim Place on the Far East Side.

Global Gallery, the oldest fair-trade marketplace in central Ohio, is in the throes of some big changes.
The Clintonville coffee shop is being renovated and is preparing to serve alcohol. The Short North gift shop is under the management of a partner organization.
Still, the mission of the nonprofit group — to market sustainable products, support safe working environments and encourage entrepreneurs in developing countries — remains the same.
