- To the Athens County Fair — a great, local institution that's back for its 168th year. We hope everyone has a great week at the fair.

- To all the 4-H'ers from around the area who are showing animals and projects this week. Good luck! The Messenger will soon feature a handful of kids each year for our annual '4-H Profile' series. Keep an eye out next week.

- To a pair of new restaurants: Terrace Café near Shade and Park's Place in Amesville. These are in two small places, but we're sure they'll get big community support. 


To hundreds of thousands of Ohioans being potentially purged from the voter rolls, per reporting from the Associated Press and The Messenger. We urge you to check your voter eligibility status online at or by contacting the Athens County Board of Elections.
