Join us at Steubenville Country Club on Tuesday, May 17, for the 2022 Chamber Golf Classic!

The Chamber golf outing is a favorite among many local businesses and organizations. It’s been around for over 30 years, yet never gets stale. New things are being added and improved each year. It brings businesspeople, golfers, volunteers, and sponsors together for a great day of friendly competition, food, drink, and lots of networking.

While it may sound cliché, many deals are made on (or near) the golf course. You never know who you’ll meet while eating breakfast, volunteering, or working your business’ tent.

Last year, over 100 were in attendance, including those who played, volunteered, came for dinner and prizes, or just stopped by to say hello.

The Chamber would like to personally invite you to come and hang out for the day. And while you’re at it, don’t forget to register for the dinner. We hope to see you there!

What exactly are community gardens?

These are plots of land that are used by individuals or groups to help benefit the people who care for the garden.

Governor DeWine Issues Statement on Death of Jefferson County Sheriff Fred Abdalla

(COLUMBUS, Ohio)— Governor Mike DeWine issued the following statement on the death of Jefferson County Sheriff Fred Abdalla.

“Fran and I were saddened to learn this morning of the death of longtime Jefferson County Sheriff Fred Abdalla. Sheriff Abdalla was a decorated U.S. Army veteran who wholeheartedly served his community with pride and dedication for decades.

“Sheriff Abdalla’s no-nonsense personality was one of the things Fran and I enjoyed the most about him. During my time as Ohio’s attorney general, I was honored to work with him on numerous cases, including a double homicide from the 1970s that he vowed to solve. It was that unwavering determination that led to the suspect’s arrest in 2014 and the suspect’s conviction the following year.

“Sheriff Abdalla truly made a tremendous impact on Jefferson County, and he will be missed. Fran and I offer our deepest condolences to his family.”

In honor of the life and legacy of Jefferson County Sheriff Fred Abdalla, Governor DeWine has ordered that flags of the United States and the State of Ohio be flown at half-staff upon all public buildings and grounds throughout Jefferson County. Flags shall remain lowered until sunset on the day of his funeral.

All other public buildings and grounds throughout the state may fly the flags of the United States and the State of Ohio at half-staff at their discretion for the same time period.

Nolo’s Quick LLC provides essential information for business owners in every state. In plain English, it explains the advantages and drawbacks of forming an LLC – including limiting your personal liability.
