BOARDMAN, Ohio -- Ivory & Birch, a new boutique featuring a wide array of merchandise from home goods to clothing and accessories, held its grand opening Wednesday.
Located at 7631 Market St., the store features more than 100 brands and items including furnishings, clothes, jewelry and greeting cards.
“I’ve been dreaming of opening a store since I was a little girl. My all-time favorite toy was a cash register and I changed my outfits six, seven times a day when I was 4,” recalled Deloran Muransky, the store’s owner.
AKRON, Ohio -- Every day the world’s oil reserves get smaller as the demand for energy grows. Vadxx Energy LLC, about to begin operating what it says will be the first-of-its-kind plant to run 24/7, sees that as an opportunity, not a problem. Petroleum might be a resource that can be exhausted, but plastic trash is seemingly inexhaustible.
The technology Vadxx has developed converts plastic waste to synthetic oil. “We’ve tested everything from tires to auto shredder residue, to sterilized hospital waste,” says Russell Cooper, Vadxx vice president of supply chain and marketing.

BOARDMAN, Ohio -- A 40,000-square-foot repair and reconditioning shop along Market Street simply wasn’t large enough for King Collision to handle the rise in rear-enders, dings, sideswipes and other mishaps to vehicles that occur everyday in the Mahoning Valley.
As the accident rate rose, so too did the need for additional space at King Collision, which formally opened its fourth shop in the region at 5801 Southern Blvd., Monday afternoon.
