95 percent of ancient Ohio was forested. But centuries ago there were also small regions of prairie. Tall grasses and wildflowers were part of the prairie ecology and so were bison. Researchers near Columbus are trying to reestablish a prairie / bison ecosystem.

Columbus Police have arrested a man who they say impersonated a Columbus Police Officer and robbed women during 2009 and 2010.
Guy Merrill, 39, of Delaware, is charged with robbery, kidnapping and impersonation of a police officer.
Investigators say Merrill used internet sites to meet women. Police say Merrill would identify himself to the women as an undercover officer and place them under arrest, then rob them.
