Several hundred people gathered Tuesday night in east Columbus to protest a Missouri grand jury’s decision not to indict police officer Darren Wilson for shooting and killing Michael Brown in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson.
The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is forcing Columbus area restaurants serving seafood to spend more money to get their supply of fish. This could be just the start of higher prices for customers who like to eat fresh oysters and shrimp.
A wetlands expert at Ohio State University says cleaning up the Gulf may best be accomplished by nature and time. William Mitsch says microbes have been doing the job for millions of years.
