Leatherworks Site Awaits Rebirth

It's been 50 years since the Ohio Leather Co. closed its Girard location...leaving behind an environmental mess. The city has quite the job ahead of it as it looks to redevelop the site on the strength of a $500,000 U.S. EPA grant to start the cleanup. Also in our MidJuly edition, we spotlight women leaders in our community, preview the Summer Arts Festival and bring you Part 2 of our feature on Civil Ware hero Oscar Boggess.
