 When the Ohio State Fair recently put out the list of exhibitors from every Sale of Champions (SOC) since the first one in 1968, I really enjoyed taking a few moments to read through the list. Johnny Regula, auctioneer for the Sale, did too.

“I have always felt the SOC is Ohio production agriculture’s chance to showcase our products — our boys and girls and our livestock. You take the list and look at the names of these exhibitors from the beginning and look now at what they are doing in agriculture, they are all leaders. That is what this program does,” Regula said.

Idea for “No Labels” bill came from Walbridge woman

By State Representative Theresa Gavarone    The most important part of being a state representative is to ensure a clear and effective channel of communication between myself and my constituents of Wood County.  

Oftentimes, with this assurance, great ideas for legislation can come directly from everyday Ohioans, truly influencing the day-to-day issues and struggles that can be addressed from the state level of government.  Exactly this kind of exchange recently occurred and became the impetus behind House Bill 115, which I recently introduced with my colleague, Representative Scott Wiggam.

Potential of aerospace is untapped

By Rebecca Grant

 SpaceX just launched ten Iridium Communications satellites into low-Earth orbit. These satellites will beam phone and data service to tens of thousands of Americans who live or work in areas too remote for regular coverage. 

 Until recently, blasting bus-sized satellites into space using rockets that can be reused belonged in the realm of science fiction. Now, such activities seem routine.  Policymakers should take note. Americans are set to reap the benefits of aerospace firms' race to tame the Final Frontier -- and the industry's investments in manufacturing will create new jobs and wealth in the United States, not just shuffle around current jobs by moving around government dollars.
