Clark County will take a step back in time this weekend with the 31st annual Fair at New Boston. Katie Wright is co-fair master this year. She feels the event paints a picture of what life was like 200 years ago when Ohio was transitioning from a territory to a state.
"The Fair at New Boston is a highly respected living history reenactment that focuses on a federal time period, 1790 -1810. And it's a civilian trades fair, which is sort of a rare thing in living history events because most are focused around a battle or some major history event and ours is not," Wright said.
Ohio's attorney general says veteran Hamilton County prosecutor Mark Piepmeier will lead the investigation into the police shooting of 21-year-old John Crawford III.
