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.
Deadline Looms For Gulf War Bonuses
The state is urging Ohio veterans who served during the first Gulf war to apply for a bonus before a year-end deadline.
Veterans of the Persian Gulf War that ran Aug. 2, 1990 to March 3, 1991, are eligible for a one-time state bonus of up to $1,000.
Vets who served anywhere else in the world during that time are eligible for a bonus of up to $500.
Family members of veterans killed in action during the Gulf War are eligible for bonuses of up to $6,500.
Voters approved the Ohio Veterans Bonus four years ago, resuming a tradition dating to the Civil War of rewarding state vets’ service.
