City ofcials: Railroa closures likely shelve
It is unlikely that Columbus council-men will consider a proposal to closerailroad crossings on Southside this year, but options remain on the tableand the situation may be re-addressedin 2014.Nearly two months ago, a group o residents spoke out against a proposalrom Kansas City Southern Railway andMississippi Department o Transporta-tion ocials to und sae-ty upgrades at six cross-ings while permanently barricading six others.KCS public saety direc-tor Allen Pepper told res-idents in August that hehad project unding “this year” that he had to spendor capital improvements. The propos-al was or KCS to upgrade crossings at Fourth, Fith, Seventh, 11th, 15th and22nd streets or roughly $40,000 whileMDOT installed saety arms and fash-ers at those same locations or about $200,000. The plan also involved Second, Sixth,Eighth, Ninth, 10th and 17th streets be-ing closed permanently on KCS’ dime.Pepper said that a de-cision needed to bemade by September,and that work wouldneed to begin beorethe end o this year, or the project to be eligible or unding. A majority o the locations in ques-tion are in Ward 1 councilman Gene Taylor’s territory. On Monday, he said it  would probably be next year beore thecity and KCS could come back to the ta-ble and resume negotiations.“I wouldn’t say it’s dead in the water,” Taylor said. “As ar as I’m concerned,the negotiations will never be closed...Idon’t think it would be smart or the city to say we’re not going to negotiate any-

NEW YORK — It’s a turkey. It’sa menorah. It’s Thanksgivukkah! An extremely rare convergencethis year o Thanksgiving and thestart o Hanukkah has created a renzy o Talmudic proportions. There’s the number crunch-ing: The last time it happened was1888, or at least the last time since Thanksgiving was declared a eder-al holiday by President Lincoln, andthe next time may have Jews light-ing their candles rom spaceships79,043 years rom now, by one cal-culation. There’s the commerce: A 9-year-old New York boy invented the“Menurkey” and raised more than$48,000 on Kickstarter or his al-ready trademarked, Turkey-shapedmenorah. Woodstock-inspired T-shirts have a turkey perched onthe neck o a guitar and implore “8Days o Light, Liberty & Latkes.” The creators nabbed the trademarkto “Thanksgivukkah.”Songs have popped up with lyr-ics like these rom “The Ballad o  Thanksgivukkah”: “Imagine JudahMaccabee, sitting down to roast turkey and passing the potatoes toSquanto ...” Rabbi David Paskin,the song’s co-writer and co-head o the Kehillah Schechter Academy inNorwood, Mass., proudly declareshis the Jewish day school nearest Plymouth Rock.Let’s not orget the ood mash-ups commemorating the stayingpower o the Pilgrims and the ght-ing prowess o the Jews, along withthe miracle o one night’s oil lastingeight days. Pumpkin latkes, ap-ple-cranberry sauce and deep-riedturkey, anyone?“It’s pretty amazing to me that inthis country we can have rich sec-ular and rich religious celebrationsand that those o us who live in both worlds can nd moments whenthey meet and can really celebratethat convergence. There are a lot o places in the world where we wouldnot be able to do that,” Paskin said. The lunisolar nature o the Jew -ish calendar makes Hanukkah andother religious observances ap-pear to drit slightly rom year to year when compared to the U.S.,or Gregorian, calendar. But mucho the intrigue over Hanukkah this year is buried deep in the history o Thanksgiving itsel, which hasn’t always been xed in the same spot. That caused some initial conusionover Thanksgivukkah, aka Turkuk-kah.In 1863, Lincoln declared Thanksgiving as the last Thursday in November (the month some-times has ve o those) and theholiday remained there until Pres-ident Franklin D. Roosevelt signeda joint resolution o Congress xingit as the ourth Thursday, startingin 1942. Jewish practice calls or the rst candle o eight-day Hanukkah tobe lit the night beore Thanksgiv-ing Day this year, so technically  Thanksgivukkah alls on the “sec-ond candle” night.

 AUBURN HILLS,Mich. — When you’vegot the smallest market-ing budget o the Detroit  Three automakers, youhave to take risks to get  your TV spots noticed. That’s why Olivier Francois, Chrysler’s mar-keting chie, gambles a lot. He’s ollowing suc-cessul ads eaturing rap-per Eminem and moviestar Clint Eastwood witha pitch rom a ctitiouscharacter — egotisticalairhead television anchor-man Ron Burgundy romthe 2004 movie “Anchor-man: The Legend o RonBurgundy.” And this time, Fran-cois got the talent to pitcha reurbished version o the Dodge Durango SUV or ree. Paramount Pic-tures, he said, bartered work on the commercialsby Will Farrell, who playsBurgundy, in exchangeor the promotion in theads o an “Anchorman”sequel that is due out inDecember.“We can’t competeon the money,” saidFrancois, a Frenchmanbehind the gritty 2011Super Bowl image ad or Chrysler with Eminem inhis hometown o Detroit,and the ollow-up spot ea-turing Eastwood talkingabout America making a comeback.Chrysler is by ar thesmallest o the Detroit car companies and hasthe lowest advertisingbudget. Last year, it spent $1.9 billion in the U.S.,about 40 percent less thanrival General Motors’ $3.1billion, and almost 20 per-cent below Ford Motor Co.’s $2.3 billion. GM wasthe second-largest adver-tiser in the nation, whileFord ranked sixth andChrysler No. 11, accord-ing the trade publication Advertising Age, whichuses gures rom Kantar Media to estimate spend-ing and rank the top 100advertisers.

 The vibrant, cheeruland sae town o Riverdaleis getting a ghoulish make-over.In “Aterlie With Ar-chie,” a series debuting Wednesday, publisher Ar-chie Comics is launchingnot just its rst horror ti-tle, but also its rst bookcarrying a rating or teensand older sold only in com-ic shops. The series written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and illustrated by Frances-co Francavilla sees Archie,Betty, Jughead, Veronica and others, including Sa-brina the Teenage Witch,enveloped in a panoply o incantations, elder gods,zombies and the undead.“It’s a hardcore horror book,” said Aguirre-Saca -sa, a Harvey Award-win-ning writer who meldedhis personal interests andhorror obsessions intoinfuences or the book.“This is why I was meant to do comics.” Those are evidenced indescriptions and images.In one panel, or example,Sabrina the Teenage Witchis clutching the abled but dreaded “Necronomicon.”In another, showing thegang at a party, Archie isdressed as Freddy Kreu-ger rom the “Nightmareon Elm Street” lms.Francavilla included hisown nods to horror clas-sics, too, like the “’Rocky Horror Picture Show’ and‘Noseratu’ posters on Jug-head’s bedroom wall.”But the book, despiteits subject matter, he said,refects the core charac-teristics o Archie and theother characters.“Sabrina? She’s alwaysmessing up,” Aguirre-Sa-casa said, though in thiscase, the mistake hasgrave consequences or  Jughead.
