Events Return To Region

August 23, 2013

ST. MARYS — Two marquee events will be bringing thousands of visitors to the region this weekend.

After a two-year hiatus, the Governor’s Cup Regatta returns to Grand Lake St. Marys today and Sunday. The event, which features hydroplane boats racing on the lake, was canceled in 2011 and 2012 and was in jeopardy this year until the Lake Improvement Association stepped up with a $20,000. Auglaize/Mercer County Convention and Visitors Bureau Director Donna Grube said the event is a shot in the arm for the local tourism economy.

Unemployment Rate Decreases

August 21, 2013

ST. MARYS — After back-to-back months of increasing, the unemployment rate across the region dipped slightly last month.

In data released Tuesday by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, Auglaize County’s unemployment rate for July dropped 0.1 percent to 5.3 percent. A year ago, the rate for the county sat at 5.7 percent.

“It seems like we haven’t seen a significant change for a while,” St. Marys Development Manager Susan Crotty told The Evening Leader.
