Hardin County Fair is Happening! Support our Junior Fair Members

9/17/2020 (Permalink)

Kolt Buchenroth, the Marketing and Communications Director for the Hardin County Fair gave us the following insight about what is happening this year for the fair. 

The Hardin County Fair is getting ready for their junior fair only show this month and the board is thankful that youth will have the opportunity to exhibit the time, money and hard work they’ve invested in their livestock projects this year.

“We are thankful for the financial support from Ohio Department of Agriculture waiving the matching portion of the facilities improvement grant, the legislature providing financial support for fairs and local support from our county commissioners in the form of the CARES act,” said Corey Ledley, Hardin County Fair board president.

The fair is using the various funding sources to provide the youth an opportunity to show this year, but also to keep the gates open for next year, too.

3/5/2018 (Permalink)

Kenton High School

SERVPRO of Central Auglaize, Hardin & Logan counties would like to thank the Kenton Police Department for their tireless service to the community.

Let's hear it for our local Kenton law enforcement officers, for being there for the students. Thank you for keeping the community and our children safe!

"A threat was made to Kenton High School this evening.

On a recorded telephone message, Kenton High School Principal Chad Thrush explained that a broad, non-specific threat was made against the school. After school officials were notified, officers from the Kenton Police Department were contacted and an investigation was conducted. 

The investigation concluded that no threat was apparent to school students or staff members. The school is set to start classes on time tomorrow, with a law-enforcement presence. Thrush also noted that the presence will be maintained by law-enforcement through the remainder of the school year."

Extreme Heat and Your Health

Extreme heat safety

Heat-related deaths and illness are preventable, yet annually many people succumb to extreme heat.

Keep your body temperature cool to avoid heat-related illness.

Keep your body temperature cool to avoid heat-related illness.

  • Stay in air-conditioned buildings as much as possible.
  • Find an air-conditioned shelter.
  • Do not rely on a fan as your primary cooling device.
  • Avoid direct sunlight.
  • Wear lightweight, light-colored clothing.
  • Take cool showers or baths.
  • Check on those most at-risk twice a day.
  • Never leave infants or children in a parked car. Nor should pets be left in parked cars—they can suffer heat-related illness too.
  • Dress infants and children in loose, lightweight, light-colored clothing.
  • Seek medical care immediately if your child has symptoms of heat related-illness.

Because your body loses fluids through sweat, you can become dehydrated during times of extreme heat.

  • Drink more water than usual.
  • Don’t wait until you’re thirsty to drink more fluids.
  • Drink from two to four cups of water every hour while working or exercising outside.
  • Avoid alcohol or liquids containing high amounts of sugar.
  • Remind others to drink enough water.

Stay updated on local weather forecasts so you can plan activities safely when it’s hot outside.

  • Check local news for extreme heat alerts and safety tips.
  • Learn the symptoms of heat illness.

Free CE Class- Ethics

CE Class Flyer

The premise for this ethics course is that though we may have solid ethical foundations and are capable of making rational ethical decisions, our ethical lapses are likely to come when we are stressed, angry, upset, worried, or otherwise disengaged.

Each and every day we are faced with decisions that we make that could cause harm to others, or ourselves. Facing ethical decisions can be very difficult, especially with the types of decisions that may seem correct at first, but we later find out were not so great. As we explore what ethics are, I will also challenge you to be prepared to become involved in hourly group activities. The group activities will help reinforce what we have learned, and also give us the ability to better deal with ethical decision making in our own lives.

National Cancer Control Month, 2016

National Cancer Control Month - April 2016


- - - - - - -



Undaunted by challenge and unceasing in pursuit of progress, our Nation has pushed the boundaries of possibility throughout our history. Today, while cancer remains among the leading causes of death around the world and the second leading cause of death here at home, cancer research is on the cusp of major breakthroughs, offering incredible promise to those suffering from this disease. This month, we remember the loved ones we have lost, pledge support for the families we can still save, and reaffirm our commitment to curing cancer once and for all.

Cancer can affect people of all ages, races, and backgrounds, but certain risk factors exist that can often be mitigated. Limiting alcohol consumption, controlling sun exposure, exercising, getting recommended cancer screenings, and maintaining a healthy diet are all ways to reduce your risk of getting cancer. Additionally, smoking remains one of the top causes of cancer, responsible for 1 in 3 cancer deaths in the United States. By promoting resources to help people quit smoking and limiting exposure to secondhand smoke, we can reduce individuals' cancer risks. Help for quitting smoking can be found at or by calling 1-800-QUIT-NOW. I urge all Americans to visit or to learn more.
