American Electric Power says it’s planning a major power outage for this Sunday.
A-E-P says it will affect the entire village of Crooksville and surrounding areas.
We’re told these are the areas expected to lose service: the areas near the race track on State Route 93, parts of Tunnel Hill Road, Buzzard Glory Road, State Route 669 and the areas around Possum Hollow Road, Elks Run Road, Rambo Road and Blosser Road.
Officers from the Zanesville Post of the State Highway Patrol were sent on a drug chase this afternoon after a man flees from them, after getting caught with crack cocaine.
28-year-old Douglas Moon’s white BMW was stopped for speeding west bound on I 70 near Lov’s Truck Stop. The officer smelled marijuana and got suspicious. That’s when the patrolman asked Moon to empty his pockets.
Moon then fled on foot, jumped over a fence, and ran through a field and into the woods...
Even though it was nestled back in the woods, thousands of people came to Thornsville for the annual Backwoods Fest. The festival had all kinds of kettle-cooked and open-fire food, as well as over 200 crafters from over seven different states.
Festival organizer Gene Launder says, "Everything's outside, hand-crafted, it's unique and special gifts for your house you can go anywhere and buy." The event lasted all weekend and organziers say over 20,000 people came to the event.
It was a beautiful day for an outdoor car show. Today the Morgan County Fairgrounds hosted show cars from all different eras. The M & M Jaycees sponsored their 21st annual Fall Festival. Anna Mae Woodruff and her husband come to festival every year to show their car, a 1948 Ford that she’s quite proud of.
In addition to showcars, the festival also had trucks, antique trailers, arts and crafts. All money raised from today’s event goes to Jaycee projects to help senior citizens.
