EXPLORING THEIR OPTIONS: In Columbus, Bill Bush reported the Columbus Chamber of Commerce (CCOC) is "commissioning a study of how to make the Blue Jackets economically viable after the team failed to get Franklin County to buy Nationwide Arena." The study, which will be conducted by Ohio State Univ. professor emeritus of finance Steven Buser and could be completed by early fall, will not "specifically focus on who should own and operate Nationwide Arena, or whether a 'sin tax' on alcohol and cigarettes should be involved, as the team had proposed." Instead, CCOC President & CEO Ty Marsh said that the study will "merely list 'credible and viable' options, both public and private, that could help the Blue Jackets turn a profit." Marsh "would not disclose the cost of the study" (COLUMBUS DISPATCH, 8/22).
