Columbus artist Jenny Fine says her camera has become a tool for facilitating intimacy between herself and her family, and nowhere is that more evident than in her “Flat Granny” series, soon to be on view at the Dublin Arts Council. The artist photographed her grandmother during the last ten years of her life.
Richland County Sheriff Threatens Lawsuit Over Budget Cuts
Listen to the Story
The Richland County Sheriff is threatening to sue county commissioners over budget cuts he says will force the lay-offs of 60 additional employees.
Sheriff Steve Sheldon in Mansfield says he needs 152 employees to handle law enforcement duties and the jail. By the end of next month, Sheldon says he will be down to one-third of that number.
Commission Clerk Stacy Crall says, in light of possible legal action, Richland County Commissioners are not commenting on the sheriff’s budget Tuesday.
However, the Record of Proceedings from the board’s February 23rd meeting when the General Fund budget was approved indicated the board had slashed the budget by nearly 25% due to reduced revenues from the sales tax and elsewhere.
