Democratic U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown is clear on the first step to avoiding the fiscal cliff — extend tax cuts for the middle class which would help nearly all Ohio taxpayers.
On Wednesday, Brown called on House Speaker John Boehner to schedule a vote as soon as possible on the Middle Class Tax Cut Act — legislation which already passed the Senate in a bipartisan vote in July and that would extend middle class tax cuts for the 99 percent of Ohio families making less than $250,000 per year.

Wapakoneta city officials reviewed a list of street projects completed in 2012, but there is only one project set for 2013 — the $2.1 million East Auglaize Street project.

The Auglaize County Agricultural Society, or Fair Board, memberes again discussed the possibility of moving the county fair to June.
Traditionally, the fair has been held the last week on July, though a change in the date is not unprecedented. However, moving it into June would be the earliest date the fair has started.
Auglaize County Fairgrounds Secretary Fred Piehl said the discussion during Monday’s Fair Board meeting does not center on board members trying to push through or a move that they are actively seeking.
