The Leadership Ottawa County Class of 2010 is conducting an awareness campaign to urge residents to shop locally.

The goal of the project is to make people think before they spend. It’s estimated that for every $100 spent, $45 to $68 is returned to the community, according to class member Erin House.

The campaign will include the distribution of flyers, thank you notes from local businesses and an Explore Ottawa County event to be held May 8 at the Ottawa County Fairgrounds. Businesses will display their wares and entertainment will be provided. Proceeds will be donated to local charities.

For more information, or to register for a booth, call Angie Adair at 419-732-2154.

Female coach

The Buffalo Bills last week hired the NFL's first female full-time coach (Kathryn Smith--special teams quality control coach). Should there be more women in coaching?
