FARMERS MARKET STILL RUNNING – Crestline Farmers Market is open from 3-6 p.m. every Tuesday at 202 N. Thomas St., by First United Methodist Church.

HUSTED HAPPY FOR BUSINESS FEE CUT SUPPORT – Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted said he’s happy the Ohio General Assembly is backing his initiative to reduce Ohio’s business filing fees 21 percent.

“This marks a rare moment when government has cut costs, improved service and is actually returning the savings back to our customers,” Husted said. “In terms of business filing fees, Ohio will now be the lowest-cost state in our region to start and maintain a business.”

The bill passed the Ohio State by an unanimous vote after previously being passed by the Ohio House of Representatives.
