The Richland County Commissioners look back at 2012 as a year of progress, and challenges.

WMFD's Greg Heindel asked each for their thoughts on the successes and difficulties as the year comes to a close.

Gary Utt, a former autoworker at the General Motors stamping plant in Ontario, sees the sale of the massive facility and plans for at least two new businesses to move in, creating up to 1100 jobs, as a great stride in 2012.

Ed Olson says the county's budget, which has shrunk by five-million dollars over the last five years, remained manageable despite a large loss of investment income and state funding cuts.

Tim Wert, a farmer by trade, says Richland County's agricultural community is doing well with increases in commodity prices and farmland values.

The commissioners look ahead to 2013 on Friday night's NewsWatch.
