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.

ST. MARYS — When Anita Barton lost a beloved horse after a summer of nursing the animal, she knew, intellectually as a school guidance counselor, that doing something out of grief is usually not the best choice.
“A lot of my friends said, ‘You do not need a puppy,’” Barton said. “But what did I do, I went and got a puppy.”
ST. MARYS — It was a busy weekend for the Resource and Opportunity Center in St. Marys.
A 5K Saturday morning raised funds for the center, the proceeds of Christian music festival Waynestock went to the cause and on Sunday, founders Joe and Bev Hurlburt rounded out the week serving a weekly free supper. As the ROC creeps up on its first birthday Oct. 1, the founders can look back at how the center has grown into its mission of giving people the resources they need to make success for themselves.
