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.
Cooper Stadium Racetrack Clears Council
The proposal to turn the old Cooper Stadium baseball stadium into a racetrack and automotive center has taken another step forward.
Columbus City Council last night voted to rezone the Mound Street property. The deal requires developers to install sound walls, and bans racing after 10 pm. Critics have said sound from racecars will bleed into nearby neighborhoods and nearby Greenlawn Cemetery. Developers say the $40 million project will create up to 300 jobs in the economically-troubled area just west of downtown.
