COMMISSIONERS HOLD OUT FOR MEDICAID DOLLARS
NEW PHILADELPHIA – Tuscarawas County leaders are holding onto hope after state senators also left Governor John Kasich’s changes to scrap the Medicaid sales tax collection in their version of the biennial budget. This is anticipated to create a $700,000 shortfall in Tuscarawas County’s yearly budget. Commissioner Kerry Metzger says the only way it can be reversed now is through the conference committee that is working to finalize the budget by the June 30th deadline. 


SMALL BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT CENTER LOOKING AHEAD
NEW PHILADELPHIA – Tuscarawas County’s small business owners can continue receiving free help growing their business through a local non-profit resource. The county commissioners have agreed to partially fund the Kent State Small Business Development Center with a $3,000 contribution in the 2018 fiscal year. Director Steve Schillig says the money helps pay experts in various fields who act as consultants. Those specialists are paid $50 an hour to offer a range of both general and in-depth services.


FIRST TOWN DAYS ROYALTY TO BE CROWNED
NEW PHILADELPHIA – We find out tonight who will be the queen for this year’s First Town Days festival, which starts a week from today. The queen’s scholarship pageant is at 7 p.m. at the Welty Middle School auditorium. Queen’s committee chair Joe Croft says four high school girls are in the running, with the winner receiving a $1,750 scholarship. WJER’s Bill Morgan is again serving as master of ceremonies.


COUNCILMAN ASKS IF CITY CAN STOP RESPONDING TO OVERDOSES
MIDDLETOWN (AP) – An Ohio city councilman has asked if city emergency crews could stop responding to drug overdose calls as costs for those calls mount. Middletown City Council member Dan Picard has asked if there is a law requiring the city to respond to overdose calls. City Manager Doug Adkins declined to comment on Picard's suggestion until he gets an opinion from the city's law department.


MCCONNELL FACES HUNT FOR GOP VOTES FOR SENATE HEALTH BILL
WASHINGTON (AP) – Senator Mitch McConnell has unwrapped his plan for dismantling Obamacare. His next challenge is persuading enough Republicans to back the bill. It was drafted after weeks of closed-door meetings that saw party leaders seek compromise between conservative senators and centrists.


TRUMP ADMITS THERE ARE NO COMEY TAPES
WASHINGTON (AP) – President Donald Trump has declared he never made and does not have recordings of his private conversations with ousted former FBI Director James Comey, ending a month-long guessing game that started with a cryptic tweet that ensnared his administration in more controversy.
