  • Scientist finds new ash borer host

    Wright State University Biology Professor Dr. Don Cipollini pointed out his groundbreaking discovery that the white fringe tree can be a host for the emerald ash borer.

Trees planted along the bike path and elsewhere in the village were instrumental to his discovery. (Photo by Megan Bachman)

The installation runs Nov. 15–30 with an opening from 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 14. (Submitted photos)

    Put a Yellow Springs muralist, a Kettering city planner and a Columbus trash artist in a gallery. Add two boxes of random art materials. Allow them three tools apiece. Hire a videographer to record them.
