Ohio City Councilman In A Syrupy Mess
LINDA WERTHEIMER, host:
Good morning. I'm Linda Wertheimer.
An Ohio city councilman is in trouble for being a back-to-nature kind of guy. He tapped a century-old maple in front of his house and collected enough sap to make two gallons of syrup.

But he still keeps chickens and beehives and makes his own soap.
It's MORNING EDITION.
