FAIR ARTS EXHIBIT GETS NEW LOOK
DOVER – Tuscarawas County Fair officials are aiming to create a fresh feel inside the Fine Arts barn this week. Senior Fair Board member Jacque Peters says the barn is a chance for people who are not in 4-H to submit entries in photography, scrap booking, quilting, and even baking categories. The exhibit, just down from the Clover Café, has been rearranged to appear more like an art gallery this year.
PRIME TIME FOR FLU SHOTS
NEW PHILADELPHIA – Health department officials are letting us know it is not too early to start thinking about getting a flu shot. Nursing Director Nicole Bache says the vaccine has been available for a few weeks already. It is better to act now instead of waiting for flu season to pick up in October and November, because the shots take a couple weeks to take effect. Bache says you can get the shot now and it will still offer protection at the end of flu season. She says any flu cases around Ohio have been very sporadic so far.
