An outdoor pest, much like the emerald ash borer, that has been known to kill trees has reached Ohio in search of hardwood trees — and one local expert says it is only a matter of time before it is found in Auglaize County.

Goldie Jackson of the Ohio State Highway Patrol said no action has been taken because the state is conducting a comprehensive review of every driver’s exam office in the state to determine what decisions make the most sense financially, as well as offer the most efficiency and best serve customers.
