Ohio LinuxFest 2015

Some of you know that I helped this great organization back in the early 2000s. This event marks the 13th year of it’s existence! And to add to the greatness, a good friend of mine Jorge Castro is doing a keynote!

If you are interested in Open Source and Linux, then this event is worth the trip. Plus, it is free for the basic attendance package.

Head over to their website and register!


Columbus Neighborhoods: Worthington

Posted on 5th October 2014

I have been privileged with the opportunity to portray the character of Ezra Griswold, an important pioneer that helped plan and settle the town of Worthington in 1803. Worthington is now considered to be a suburb of Columbus, but is it’s own City in own rights.

Ezra Griswold was a good friend with James Kilbourne, the man whom envisioned the settlement of Worthington. Together, with the established Scioto Company, these men created one of my favorite parts of the Columbus area.

I was lucky to be able to attend the private community premiere on this past Wednesday. The episode is one of the best they have done in the series. I suggest that you take a peak at the following extended trailer.

The full episode will premiere on TV tonight at 8pm on WOSU, and will be on rotation thereafter. I hope that they release the full episode online at some point and will share it here if they do.


Archie Bush – Mysteries at the Museum

Posted on 26th March 2014

ArchieBushJune of last summer, I had the honor and privilege of portraying a minor character in the televised story of the curve ball, which aired on The Travel Channel’s Mysteries at the Museum. We were asked by Tracy Martin of Martin’s Base Ball Museum to come out and participate in the filming of this segment. What I did not know is that I would be getting more camera time than I had bargained.

The 22nd Ohio was a grand success as it always is. Jim Tootle was interviewed by ABC 6 / Fox 28 and gives a perfect explanation of vintage base ball. Here is the footage that appeared on both Fox 28 and ABC 6 in Columbus.


The Ohio Cup Preview

With 32 teams coming from all over the Midwest and even back East, the Ohio Cup is the premier Vintage Base Ball event (Yes, two words my editor friends). We were fortunate enough to have our local news, NBC 4, come out and interview one of our players.
