The Biological Sciences Greenhouse at OSU has been fortunate to have multiple bloomings of the Titan Arum, aka, the corpse flower. They have its smaller but also smelly cousin, the Voodoo Lily. From its bruise-colored bloom that resembles a corpse, to its stench of rotting flesh, this tropical flower masks its beauty to attract its pollinators.
Columbus City Council considers leash law
If you think your local city park is going to the dogs,you’re not alone. Each evening in parks across the city people unleash their dogs to play and run free while owners socialize.
But a proposed city leash law could bring the party to an end. Columbus City Council is considering a city leash law that would require dogs be on a leash. Columbus City Council member Kevin Boyce drafted the leash law. He says the proposed legislation would allow owners to let their dogs to run free in 7 parks – all seven are located outside the central city.
If caught, dog owners face a fourth degree misdemeanor.
