Channel 10 news - Tue, 09/25/2018 - 20:57

COLUMBUS, Ohio – NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said the league is looking at the possibility of having an outdoor hockey game in Columbus, according to BlueJackets.com.

Bettman made the comments while at the 2018 Kraft Hockeyville USA preseason game in New York featuring the Columbus Blue Jackets and the Buffalo Sabres.

He did not say anything was for certain but talks are happening internally.

“It's obvious that the team is competitive, that they're playing exciting hockey, that the fans are reacting in positive ways," Bettman said Tuesday.

"It's even at the point where internally, we're not there yet, we have started focusing on the possibility of an outdoor game."

As for where the game could potentially be played Bettman mentioned, “There's a big football stadium there, last time I checked.”

Bettman said "The Shoe" is on their radar for places to go but they have not done a site survey yet.

A ground stop means flights have to remain on the ground.

We have issued a Delta ground stop as we work to bring systems back up as quickly as possible. We apologize to all customers for this inconvenience. “

Delta later said it had "restored all IT systems after a technology issue briefly affected some of our systems this evening. All ground stops have been lifted."

International flights were not affected, according to Delta.

Reynoldsburg mother's stolen phone holds hundreds of pictures of daughter's last days

Channel 10 news - Tue, 09/25/2018 - 18:39

Forget everything you thought about pictures. They're not worth any amount of words. They're worth an endless amount of memories.

"I have a million other pictures I've just never had them framed," Lacey Lovejoy said.

Lovejoy sits in her living room in the middle of multiple pictures hanging on the walls. Every one of them are for her.

"She was incredible," she said. "She was very unique, very, very funny. Very upbeat."

"She was": They are arguably the two most difficult words Lovejoy says about her daughter, Trinity.

When she was 2 years old, Trinity was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma. It led to surgeries, radiation, chemotherapy and antibody therapies. In five years, Trinity beat it four times.

The fifth time, though, was too much and she passed away in July. She was 7 years old.

"It's definitely been rough," Lovejoy said.

Rough, she says, is losing a child.

Rough is having to stare at her dollhouse exactly as Trinity left it in the dining room. Rough is keeping Trinity's bedroom door shut because it's too painful to open. It got even more rough, Tuesday.

Monday night, Lovejoy had a man come over that she met on social media. She says they'd been talking for a few months.

For some reason, unlike her, she says, she fell asleep and didn't wake up until Tuesday morning.

"And when I woke up he was gone," she said. "My closet was open. My file cabinet was open. There were several things in my room that had been moved around. It was very obvious that he had been going through my stuff."

She says one of the things missing was her Samsung Galaxy S7 phone. On it, she says, were hundreds of pictures and videos showcasing Trinity's last few months.

"I have all the pictures of us," she said. "Our last moments with her. The last time I held her, the last time my mom held her. I have a video on there of the last time she told me she loved me."

She filed an online police report with the Columbus Police Department. She says the man apparently didn't tell her his real name, which means police are limited with what they can do.

Still, she's optimistic.

"I hope that it comes back," she said. "More than anything."

She hopes that her memories will return.

"I just want the pictures back," she said. "It's not even the phone. I don't care about the phone."

If you have any information about Lovejoy's missing phone, you're asked to call Columbus Police at (614) 645-4545.

Arby's owner buys Sonic drive-in hamburger chain

Channel 10 news - Tue, 09/25/2018 - 18:08

ATLANTA (AP) — Arby's owner Inspire Brands is buying the Sonic drive-in hamburger chain.

Inspire is paying $43.50 per share cash, or $2.3 billion, for Sonic, which has 3,600 restaurants in the U.S. Inspire expects the deal to close by the end of this year.

Sonic will operate as a separate business unit within Inspire and remain based in Oklahoma City. The first Sonic opened in Oklahoma in 1953.

Inspire says Sonic's management team will also remain in place.

Sonic earned $63.7 million in its 2017 fiscal year, which ended Aug. 31. That was down slightly from the previous two years.

Atlanta-based Inspire was formed earlier this year when Arby's acquired the Buffalo Wild Wings chain.

Inspire said Tuesday owning multiple chains will help it share resources, including customer loyalty data and suppliers.
