Columbus artist Ric Stewart combines his love of art and motorcycles, most notably through sculpture. We visit his workshop at the Columbus Cultural Arts Center where he demonstrates for us the “lost-wax” method of bronze casting.
Corn and Soybean Harvest Begins
Ohio’s corn and soybean harvests are off to a slow starts. But, two farm analysts say yields will be better in Ohio than in the rest of the Midwest grain belt due to rains during July and August. Jim Ramey is head of the federal office of the Ohio Agricultural Statistics Service. He says soybean farmers will get high prices for beans during early harvest. Doug Tenney is a grain marketer for Leist Mercantile in Circleville. He says crops planted late are still not ripe and could be damaged by an early frost. Tenney also says corn and bean yields are good but not record.
