Musical entertainment returns to fair lineup

Musical entertainment is returning to the Carroll County Fair lineup.

Fair board officials signed country singer Jo Dee Messina to perform Saturday, July 21, in front of the grandstand.

Tickets go on sale April 14 via a link on the fairboard website, www.carrollcountyfairohio.com. Tickets are $10 each, plus processing, for track seats. Grandstand seating is free.

Messina is a seasoned veteran in the music industry, always evolving and reintroducing herself and her sound as she gains new experiences in life. Jo Dee’s breakout song, “Heads Carolina, Tails California,” made her a household name. Following the success of her debut, Jo Dee posted nine No. 1 hits, sixteen Top 40 songs, sold over five million albums worldwide, and was honored by the ACM Awards, CMA Awards, and GRAMMY Awards. As Jo Dee’s résumé grew, she proved to be a trendsetter and history-maker, becoming the first female in country music history to celebrate three consecutive multi-week, chart-topping songs.

In September 2017 she was diagnosed with cancer. She returned to the stage March 18 and, according to a Facebook post, “is doing well after returning to the stage.” The post noted she used her down time to work on fresh music, which will be released soon.

CARROLLTON -Dr. Wendy Gotschall was named interim health commissioner during a special meeting of the Board of Health March 29.

The board had agreed a week earlier to hire an interim health commissioner to work two to six hours per week at a rate of $25 per hour.  The board agreed March 29 to increase the hours per week after the matter is discussed further with Gotschall.

“I am excited to be here.  The first thing I will do is sit down with each employee,” said Gotschall.  She continued to say that there are so many good people working at the health dept. “They know their jobs and how to do them well.  I am sure things can be worked out and the department will be back on track soon.”
