Officials at Marsh confirmed the impending closings in Columbus and in Marion. A confirmed source says March 9 is the final day of operations at the Marsh Supermarket, 4512 South Adams Street in Marion and the Columbus Marsh Hometown Market Store at 2710 State Street.

The closures will leave one Marsh store in Marion and Columbus.

Marsh officials say intends to grant as many employees as possible a severance package or give them the opportunity to transfer to other locations.

The closures will leave Marsh with 91 stores in Indiana and Ohio. About 45 percent of those are in the Indianapolis area.

Marsh closed a Main Street market in Wabash and three Marsh Supermarkets in Anderson, Greenwood, and Martinsville in 2012 and three others in 2011.

WEBMASTER’S NOTE: The affected Marsh Supermarket in Marion is located in the No IWU Zone. The last item purchased at the particaular Marsh store was a package of hamburger buns for $1.29  in August 2001. The first item ever purchased at the Adams Street store was a TV Guide magazine for 50 cents.

NO IWU ZONE NOTE: The Marsh closure means that

New Policies going into effect today

Today I am turning 30 and I know it seems that I am at that point where I have to start making changes now that just hours ago I was in my 20’s.

One policy of mine has something to do with my sexuality since I came out as a transwoman 10 years ago this upcoming November… For the first time I will add trangendered males to the dating pool in the event should Amanda and I break up and the current long-term relationship expires. What this means for the transgender man if he is non-op and keeping his female reproductive system intact as a condition of the long-term relationship with my first ever boyfriend. This may sound like a strange but the reality as a transgender woman wanting children is that as transgender individuals wanting children prior to going on hormones is very expensive sperm or egg banking and when I first made my transition attempt my 7th grade year in 1995 I thought I would be able to go through the normal pregnancy other women do like a uterus transplant, fallopian tubes and ovaries.
Once I came out as a woman I knew the truth of living as a transgender woman and according to research I found online I would have to store sperm before going on estrogen and progesterone.

After realization I could not afford sperm banking the only choices I have left are selling my virginity on Ebay or keeping my male parts for the time being until I have enough children.

THAT is why I am allowing transgender men to the dating pool with biological bisexual females since I have been in two relationships with such ladies with such sexual orientation.

Another new policy going in effect is Renters Insurance due to the close call I had back this past Labour Day Weekend. I had an apartment that was truly HOUSING HELL.

After that close call back in September I knew I wouldn’t even consider having sexual intercourse in my home in that condition or let alone conceive a child in filthy conditions I was living in when I lived with my mother.

So that’s it for me.

Watching “The Voice” for the first time Monday night

So I have heard a lot of buzz about the NBC singing competition, “The Voice” from one of neighbours, Derrick several months ago.   However, while I was going through my usual newsfeeds and research, and the fact that I am relocating to Indianapolis after 2013 as it is the only way to permanently resolve a four year Cold Civil Case, as my niece-in-law, Sheena, says is not as major as it seems. As you may recall a windstorm knocked my landlady’s outdoor antenna onto the apartment complex on the afternoon of June 29, 2012 definitely sealed my fate in Marion after 16 years, and having to rely on internet streams as a television provider (in addition to FREE over-the-air television reception) after missing a fateful episode of Duets where I swore nearly 90 times in a 15 minute YouTube video–such behaviour, in my opinion was necessary and demonstrating a passion to grow an alliance of transwomen and lesbain women to vote for the female contestants (I’m not sure this would be classified as to combat the alliance of grandmothers and ladies that vote for the cute male contestants 100 pecent yet) and putting the WGWG (White Guy With Guitar) BS out if its misery. There is a reason why Vote for the Girls lanched in 2012–not to destroy Vote for the Worst, but a real alternative to said site, to post attack ads on the Vote for the Girls YouTube channel.   I would not believe Vote for the Worst’s picks at all and to simply put it in layman’s terms–It’s Politics As Usual.

Aeverine Zinn closing INNewsCenter

When I launched INNewsCenter at Mississinewa High School as part of a Computer Technology project on November 1, 1999, INNewsCenter covered only the Fort Wayne and Indianapolis markets. Over the years, the site grew into 20 markets and the five states that surround Indiana.

During the twelve years INNewsCenter went through four different domains (on GeoCities, Tripod, and INNewsCenter.net).

During the last several years, the fate and future of INNewsCenter has been challenged, including the 2006 C&D from Gray Television and Scripps, among others. Two notable challenges that ultimately deicded INNewsCenter’s fate proved to be the Bright House Networks/WISH-TV dispute in October 2008 and the aftermath in my origin of Marion, indiana that followed by WANE-TV, WPTA, and WISE-TV being gone from Bright House Networks in Marion, and more recently Nexstar’s spat with Fox that cost Evansville’s WTVW and Fort Wayne’s WFFT.

With the announcement of Aeverine Zinn, yours truly, auditioning for American Idol’s 11th season in Pittsburgh, the Bright House Networks/WISH-TV dispute from October 2008, WFFT losing Fox on August 1, 2008, and my bout from recent pysical, menal, and emotional health scares that began last June, has lead me to only one decision.

It is with sadness and regret that I have decided to shut down INNewsCenter.net after 12 years in operation. INNewsCenter on YouTubewill stay in operation with an occasional video when I have the time. This was not an easy decision for me that I had to consider many things to consider..

In closing, I want to say to all visitors that ever visted INNewsCenter, you have all been very grateful over the 12 years. So give TVNewsTalk.net a fair break. If you don’t, I promise you whomever buys the INNewsCenter.net domain name will just put another Encyclopedia Dramatica-type web site. Then you’ll be sorry.
As I enter a new chapter in my life, I will be writing a new song in the memory of INNewsCenter. I will give you a hint – It will be a medley of the lyrics of Frank Sinatra’s My Way and another song to be announced on the “Aeverine Zinn for American Idol” Facebook page.

HEARTBROKEN 4 CRYSTAL: Incorrect American Idol Winner Suggests Flaws in Idol Voting Methodology

The photo says it all.

AVA NIEVES IS HEARTBROKEN FOR CRYSTAL BOWERSOX 🙁



Incorrect American Idol Winner Suggests Flaws in Idol Voting Methodology
   — National study reveals that American Idol winner did not reflect viewer’s choice–
Flemington, NJ, May 27, 2010 – A national study conducted among 3,901 American Idol viewers revealed that the contestant who was selected as the winner of the season 9 competition did not accurately reflect the viewers’ choice.
The Idol Democracy study was conducted during May 25-26, by HCD Research using its mediacurves.com website, to obtain American Idol viewers’ perceptions of which contestant should be chosen as the winner on the May 26 results show. HCD Research conducted a series of studies among a nationally representative sample of Americans, which paralleled American Idol voting to determine the weekly winners based on a democratic, “one person, one vote” methodology.
During last night’s show, Lee Dewyze was selected as the winner of the show for this season. In contrast, viewers participating in the national Idol Democracy study, which employs a “one person, one vote” system, reported that Crystal Bowersox, who received 66.2% of the votes, should have won competition last night by a large margin. Dewyze only received 33.8% of the votes in the Idol Democracy study.
The discrepancy in results between American Idol and the Idol Democracy study may point to a flaw in the American Idol voting methodology. The American Idol voting methodology allows viewers to vote multiple times for multiple contestants. However, the Idol Democracy study only allows viewers to vote one time for one contestant, as in a democratic voting system.

“I would be interested to see a frequency distribution of the number of votes per person for the American Idol final vote,” commented Glenn Kessler, president and CEO, HCD Research, “My guess is that you would see a smaller number of people voting many times, which does not give an accurate reflection of which contestant the majority of viewers wanted to win.”

Among the findings:
Respondents were asked to pick the one contestant that they thought should advance to the next round of the competition:

The New Look of Yours Truly….

Yours truly, Aeverine Nieves, will soon be sporting a new look in the near future thanks to a firndly wager between Patrice Rafferty, a former co-worker at ATE Media Corporation from 1990 to 1999 and currently the president of ATE Media, involving American Idol’s ninth season.

The friendly wager has nothing to do with the recent fiasco NoSirGifts and ATE Media have been involved in, but Mrs. Rafferty and I made a friendly wager on right after Siboahn Magnus was eliminated and I officially endorsed Crystal Bowersox and my decision to post the “At 9:00 PM Eastern, call 1-866-IDOLS-##… for Crystal Bowersox” and I voted non-stop with my landline and cell phone as well as Angie’s cell phone (and yes, it was worth every text on the cell phones and call on the landline.) Almost 4,000 votes for Crystal have paid off to get her into the finale.

So far the vote status on my Facebook profile as well as my page and Ava’s Rant (as well as NoSirGifts and INNewsCenter HD) has apparently worked. Even a few people I went to school with commented on my deicison and are supportive of the makeover that will happen in the near future. A majority of my Facebook friends and fans have been supportive of yours truly on the decision to endorse Crystal and mostly for my upcoming makeover.

Note: NoSirGifts’ Chicago and Columbus (OH) venues are talking smack. The Columbus venue is talking smack about DeWyze and the Chicago venue is talking smack about Chicago.

I will say my new look will potentially be beneficial, but rather it was badly needed according to my neighbors.  The question now is: “Where will Ava get the makeover?” I will give you a hint, The hair will either be done at The New Look in Gas City or Classico in the North side of Marion (since I know someone I went to high school with that works there). The manicure and pedicure, I am still negotiating since that will be the first place to start the makeover.

The force behind my potential new look has surfaced after a season two episode of Queen of the Willis (an animated sitcom that I created based on the short-lived comic strip Frank’s Life at Mississinewa High School but pulled for sexual content), after Ava Willis drops eyeglasses for contacts and has her hair lengthened?  Well, it is safe to say “For the first time ever, now that I have a wife and stepdaughter and they, as well as many of my co-workers at NoSirGifts and Carey Services and those that have not seen me since my high school graduation in 2001 have never seen me with a manicure, pedicure, and permanent makeup–and that is just the beginning of the makeover.” 

I will give you a hint about my new look coming soon, since I already look similar to Alexis Arquette, and I would not be surprised if someone mistakenly adressed me as “Alexis” or “Ms. Arquette” instead of “Ava”, “Ms. Nieves”, or “Ms. Zinn”

So, do you think Ava’s New Look will help or harm? Comment on Ava’s Rant or comment below. On Facebook, go to Facebook.com/AvasRant or on Twitter @aeverine_rant.
