Vintage baseball subject of upcoming Faculty Lecture SeriesFaculty, staff and students are invited to bring their lunch and join the Division of Arts and Sciences for the Faculty Lecture Series "Vintage Base Ball and the Ohio Village Muffins," presented by Jim Kimnach, assistant professor in the Developmental Education Department.
The lecture will be Tuesday, April 3 at noon in Nestor Hall Seminar Room A. The lecture is free and open to the public.
In 1860, base ball (two words) was played without gloves and you could put a batter out by catching the ball on the fly or first bounce. The Ohio Village Muffins, an educational arm of the Ohio Historical Society, play the game the way it was played in 1860, dressed in uniforms from that era. Kimnach will give the audience a little history of the game of base ball and information about the many teams around the country that are re-creating this form of the game. Jim is an umpire, tally keeper, and interpreter for the Muffins.

College credit ratings are affirmed by Moody's Investors and Standard & Poor'sIn preparation for refinancing the mortgage the college took out in 1997 to build the garage on the Columbus campus, the College had to receive an updated credit rating from Moody's Investors and Standard & Poor's Ratings Services. Both rating agencies affirmed the college's ratings, which were upgraded in late 2003 from previous ratings, and both noted that the college had a stable financial outlook.
In conducting their reviews, the rating agencies consider many financial factors, including levels of debt, reserves, and operating performance.
The ratings also reflect the college's overall enrollment growth, its niche as the only community college in one of the strongest economic areas in Ohio, the college's modest debt burden, and no new debt plans.
