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.
Franklin County Government Wants Money Saving Ideas
Franklin County residents begin paying an additional county sales tax on October First. The county will collect half-a-penny more on purchases. While the sales tax will help generate more revenue for the county, the head of the Franklin County Commission recently asked county workers for budget help.
President Mary Jo Kilroy says she especially wants to hear money saving ideas from the “scrooges, inventors, and entrepreneurs” among the county workforce. In an interview with W-O-S-U News, Kilroy says budget woes prompted her request.
