We hear about the presidential candidates all the time, but what about local candidates running for office? If you need to learn more about the local candidates before the election, this Sunday you will have the opportunity to meet and listen to over 20 candidates running in this year’s election.
Organizers want to stress the importance of Ohio voters in this year’s election. The more you know about the issues, the better decision you’ll be able to make.
In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue. Yes… today is Columbus Day, an American holiday commemorating the date of Christopher Columbus’s arrival in the Americas. Besides a day off of work, we asked people around Zanesville what this day meant to them.

The Zanesville Police Department will hold a news conference this morning to release details of a bank robbery investigation. WHIZ News has learned that police detectives made an arrest in connection with the September 30th robbery of the Unizan Bank at the Colony Square Mall.

Some caring volunteers are helping to make less fortunate kids have a brighter Christmas.
The annual Toys for Tots auction was held this afternoon, with all the funds going to purchase gifts for the area children.
Organizers buy the toys for the kids then donate them to local agencies such as Eastside Community Ministry, The Salvation Army and Children’s Services. Those agencies then distribute the gifts to the less fortunate.
For over forty years, local churches have joined together to raise money for people in crisis around the world and in Muskingum County. Today they held their annual Crop Walk at the Zane Landing Park in Zanesville.
"We have a variety of churches representing all denominations. Our goal is to have 20 different churches or organizations. Last year we had 17 so I hope we will achieve that goal today," says Reginald Martin.
Organizers hope to raise $15,000 from today's event...
