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.
Trooper Fired After Latest Drunk Driving Charge
The State Highway Patrol has fired a trooper accused of driving drunk and hitting two parked cars outside a Short North bar.
Jeremy Garner, 35, was fired last week after other troopers testified they tried to keep him from driving away Skully’s Music Diner after a night of drinking in February.
Other troopers say Garner became “hostile” before leaving.
Garner was previously convicted of drunken driving in 2007.
