Indiana-based artist Tasha Lewis transforms the Conservatory’s gallery with thousands of magnetic cyanotype butterflies printed on cotton fabric. Her blue butterflies hover in mid-air and seem to swarm the space, blurring the connection between the natural and artificial worlds.
Ousted Ohio EPA Watchdog Will Fight To Keep Job
A veteran Ohio environmental regulator who said the administration of Republican Gov. John Kasich is forcing him to resign after pressure from the coal industry is fighting to keep his job.
George Elmaraghy has run the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency’s Division of Surface Water since June 2005. He authored an email widely distributed earlier this week that said his resignation Sept. 13 comes after “considerable pressure” his division faced to accommodate the coal industry.
Elmaraghy informed Ohio EPA Director Scott Nally in a new email Thursday that he didn’t want to retire and was withdrawing his resignation. EPA emails provided to The Associated Press show Nally has denied Elmaraghy’s request to stay on.
Elmaraghy has hired a lawyer. He has worked at the Ohio EPA for 39 years.
