Before heading to compete in a national pageant, a 17-year-old Wapakoneta High School senior gave her local community a preview of what she would be presenting to the nation next week.
The Ohio State University graduate student Alexandra Gress quickly pointed out Wednesday the Auglaize County Junior Fair offered â€ścuts that certainly rank well with industry standardsâ€ť during the carcass review at Kah Meats.
â€śComparitively speaking, things were certainly at the industry average,â€ť said Gress, who has been judging carcasses for fairs since 2007. â€ťThe pork was very good quality. The grand and dairy steers were very good quality, too.â€ť
A contract for social services offered as part of the family planning program at the Auglaize County Health Department has been terminated.
â€śWeâ€™re streamlining family planning,â€ť Auglaize County Health Commissioner Charlotte Parsons said of the decision after the Auglaize County Health Boardâ€™s meeting this week. â€śWe donâ€™t feel we can afford to offer it any more.â€ť
Parsons said the decision was made as the department continues to receive less funding through grants and other sources.
