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.
Ohio Treasurer Mandel Thinks Tax Hike Will Scare Industry Away
A fellow Republican state official has come out against Gov. John Kasich’s proposed tax increase on drillers.
Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel tells a meeting of the Ohio Oil and Gas Association he believes the governor’s proposal to increase the severance tax stands to scare away Ohio oil and gas investment at a critical time.
Mandel’s remarks Thursday mark the second time in under a month he has bucked the governor on a major policy issue.
In February, Mandel sent a letter to state legislators urging them to reject Kasich’s proposal to expand Medicaid under the federal health care law. He argued the plan’s long-term harm outweighed its short-term benefits.
Both the tax increase and the Medicaid expansion are part of Kasich’s two-year state budget.
