MANSFIELD, OH - Miss Ohio Scholarship program week has arrived with 20 contestants vying for the crown.

Preliminaries began Thursday and continue Friday evening at the Renaissance Theatre in Mansfield.  

20 women are competing for the title in areas of interview, swimsuit, and evening gown competition.

Current Miss Ohio Sarah Clapper will also be present and will help emcee the show, while also performing all this week.           

The public will again be given an opportunity to have a say in the People's Choice Award with online voting through missohio.org where you can choose a contestant that you think should be included in the top 10. 

42-thousand dollars in scholarship money is on the line for contestants. Good luck gals!


Based on the classic Disney animated film, the musical Mulan, Jr. will come to life on the Mansfield Playhouse Stage one final weekend until June 17th.

Local actress Brooke Young will star in the title role as Mulan and Evan Wertz has been cast in the role of the dragon Mushu.

Tammy Gwertz is the choreographer.  The primary show director is Mark Jordan with musical direction by Madison Schools Choral director, Craig Green.

Performances are June 15th and 16th at 7 p.m. and a final matinee show on June 17th at 7 p.m. For tickets, call 419-522-2883 or buy online through mansfieldplayhouse.com. 


The Summer Concert series at the Marshall Park Band Shell in Ontario returns this summer with fun events.

Outside of music concerts, there will be Yoga In The Park classes once a month through September and a community movie night August 4th.     

The season of music will offer a little for everyone from rock to country to jazz favorites and anything in between. 

Regrettably, the first concert of the season scheduled for June 12th was canceled due to bad weather but is now rescheduled for this next Monday evening at 6 pm. The Devault Ridge Band has accepted the make-up performance date next Monday evening at 6 pm at Marshall Park - where all concerts will be staged this summer.

On deck next week hear "Just Jazz Live" on June 26th and Open Mic Night will fall on June 29th.
