NEWARK, Ohio â This weekend marks one of the few times in a nearly 19-year lunar cycle when viewers can see the moon rise or set in alignment with the walls of ancient earthworks. Tonight and Saturday evening, viewers can see a northern minimum moonrise, the least-northern moonrise in the moonâs cycle. This particular alignment wonât occur again for another 18.6 years.
With the letter "m" crossed out in every use, Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor released an official resolution declaring Saturday "Scarlet Letter Saturday." Why you may ask?
Visitors to the Ohio Statehouse will face increased security measures, metal detectors and a ban on backpacks starting Monday. The decision follows discussions by Gov. John Kasichâs administration in the past few years and is âproactive,â according to a notice sent Wednesday to statehouse tenants from the Capital Square Review and Advisory Board.
