ONE Health Ohio reopens, adds to Warren West location

in News 64 views

WARREN — ONE Health Ohio at Warren West Community Health Center held a grand reopening Friday to the community following its nine-month closure.

The health care provider also held a 1 p.m. ribbon-cutting ceremony at the 716 Tod Ave SW location to introduce its prescription pharmacy pad, which will provide a variety of in-house pharmacy services, such as medication management and prescription refills.

“We’re bringing a new in-house service here, which is an in-house retail pharmacy. We call it ‘The Prescription Pad,’” said Maria Kowalm, MD, chief medical officer of ONE Health Ohio.

“Today we’re celebrating a ‘welcome home’ for our community because this location of ours that opened back in 2002 has been closed the last nine months for a modernization,” Kowalm said.

As part of the modernization, ONE Health used the space more wisely to increase the number of exam rooms to provide more access to patients and serve a greater portion of the community, according to a ONE Health Ohio press release.

Ohio expands ban on foreign political donations: What it could mean for November

in News 33 views

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Republican state lawmakers had the November election – and a specific major funder of liberal politics nationwide – in mind when they passed a new law earlier this month expanding the state’s existing ban on political contributions by foreigners.

But it remains to be seen whether the law will have its intended effect – stopping the liberal dark money group, the Sixteen Thirty Fund, from writing more multi-million dollar checks to state ballot campaigns here – or whether it may even have unintended ones, such as broadly discouraging any form of anonymous political spending in Ohio, as is possible under the way the law is written.

Travel: Ohio artifacts can be seen in England

in News 53 views

Many travelers and history buffs are aware that the British Museum in London is, controversially, the repository for the ancient Parthenon Marbles, also known as the Elgin Marbles, removed from the Acropolis in Athens, Greece, and brought to England in the early 19th century.

But the museum also holds many other historic items from around the world, including some of the most important archeological artifacts from Ohio.

In a glass display case in the British Museum’s Room 26, visitors will find more than two dozen exquisitely fashioned pipes, as well as bowls and other objects recovered from mounds built by the prehistoric Hopewell people of the Scioto Valley.

Ohio Republican proposes bill that would defund libraries over materials government deems ‘harmful’

in News 42 views

An Ohio Republican lawmaker just introduced a bill that would defund public libraries if they don’t remove or hide so-called “harmful” materials to juveniles.

Columbus mom-of-two Michelle Francis is not just a fan of her local library but of all the public programs.

“I’ve got two daughters, they love the library,” Francis said. “They request all the time to go visit.”

She works at the Ohio Library Council and said the biggest challenge she is facing right now is a lack of funding.

Libraries are in their busiest times of the year now that schools are letting out, but in recent weeks, facilities across the state have reported cutting hours, programs and even staff.

Many libraries rely on taxpayer dollars, but state revenue continues to decline, as detailed this week in an Ohio Capital Journal report.

From the biggest stages to small town Ohio, Rita Moreno supports Ironton community

in News 50 views

Icon, actress, advocate and EGOT-winner Rita Moreno spent her Memorial Day weekend in the small town of Ironton, Ohio, visiting her friend, watching the famous Memorial Day parade and most importantly helping raise funds to support the youth and community of what she considers her ‘own little Puerto Rico’ in Ohio.

In the heart of the small town of Ironton, Ohio, where the longest-running Memorial Day parade in the nation proudly marches, stage and screen icon Rita Moreno graced the Bowman Auditorium on Ohio University’s Southern campus with her humor and heart. At 92 years young, Moreno, an EGOT winner, delighted the audience with her smart quips and anecdotes from her storied life, alongside her manager and longtime friend, Ironton native John Ferguson.

Although Moreno’s visit to Ironton was to visit Ferguson and see the famous Memorial Day parade, it was not only for leisure; it was also a heartfelt gesture of support for the local community. Upon Ferguson’s invitation, Moreno eagerly agreed to lend her voice free of charge to a fundraising event benefiting OHIO Southern’s Bobcat Academy, a summer camp for local children, and the Ironton Rotary nursing scholarships, which empower aspiring nurses from the region.

Ohio libraries bracing for tough choices as state funding revenue continues to dip

in News 26 views

Ohio public libraries act as community hubs not just for reading, but also internet access, and job and school resources. But they are being forced to have difficult discussions as state funding revenue continues to dip, threatening operations and programs.

For Victoria Schrock, who’s worked at three different library systems in the state, the library represents a bridge from patrons to basic human needs.

“I think really everything we do is connected to or promotes human flourishing,” Schrock said.

She started working in libraries in 2020 and watched as the communities relied more on digital resources, but also clung to access to technology, social services and learning-loss help as the pandemic closed schools and left parents and students without other options.

“One of my favorite things about my job is seeing people make connections and build community,” Schrock said.
