Next up for Ohio: A state artifact
Ohio lawmakers say the adena is a unique remnant
by WKSU's STATEHOUSE CORRESPONDENT BILL COHEN


Reporter

In The Region:

A bi-partisan team of state lawmakers want Ohio to declare a very old smoking pipe as the official state artifact. Democratic State Representative John Carney talked with statehouse correspondent Bill Cohen about the  adena, which is made in the image of a native American.

“It was from sometimes between 800 B.C and 1A.D. so it is extremely old. ... There was only one that we know of that was found here in Ohio; it was found down in Chillicothe.”


State Rep. John Carney is co-sponsoring the proposal with Republican state Rep. Mike Duffey. They say some elementary school students originated the idea of having the Adena Effigy Pipe declared Ohio's official state artifact.

The legislators say it's a good exercise that helps teach children how bills become laws.

This is very exciting! Would it be possible to change "some elementary school students" to students at Columbus School for girls? Our girls have been working on this effort for two years and it would be nice to credit their amazing efforts!
