Today marks the start of an online auction to benefit the Muskingum County Chamber of Commerce.

Projects for the Community Development Block Grant Program were presented today to the Muskingum County Commissioners.
Ten projects were submitted by Friday’s deadline, now the Commissioners must come up with recommendations for up to five projects. “We have a little over $200,000 extra that the state has given us, and we need to decide which projects to spend that money on,” commented CDBG Coordinator Stephanie Spencer.
A local hunter received an interesting surprise Sunday.
After hitting what he thought was a 9-point buck, 17-year-old Chris McCabe discovered his deer was more special than he had thought. His kill was an antlered female. “I couldn’t believe it was that big of a doe. I’ve heard of it, but never seen it real life.”
Chris made the kill last night in Norwich, and now hopes to have a full body mount of the deer and place it in his living room.
