In these first two segments, we’re going to learn about Jerrie Mock—and about local artists who helped commemorate the 50th anniversary of her pioneering flight around the world.
Dewey Stokes announces opposition to tire plant
Franklin County Commissioner Dewey Stokes has come out against a plan to covert the closed south Columbus trash burning plant into a tire recycling facility.
Stokes is also a member of the Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio, or SWACO, board.
Some neighbors of the plant oppose its use as a plant to melt and recyle old tires. The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency granted the company a preliminary permit saying the tire-melting process would be clean and odorless.
