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.
Fire officials say arson is the cause of an early-morning blaze that destroyed part of St. Mary’s Macedonian American Orthodox Church on the east side of Columbus. The church’s offices were gutted while the interior of the adjoining sanctuary was heavily damaged.
