AC Fair adds Nashville Crush to lineup
Tuesday, July 08, 2014 8:14 PM | Updated ( Wednesday, July 09, 2014 7:49 PM )



LIMA — Nashville Crush, the hottest country music band in western Ohio, has been added to fill in the last remaining night of grandstand entertainment at the 2014 Allen County Fair. “Crush” will perform at 8 p.m. on Aug. 22.

“The band has always wanted to play the ‘big stage’ at the fair,” Allen County Fair General Manager David Grimm said. “The Fair’s entertainment committee looked at a lot of different entertainers but when they found out the band was available, it was a ‘no-brainer’ to book them. The band plays a lot of venues but their followers just can’t get enough of them.”

WASHINGTON — Cleveland won the unanimous backing of a Republican National Committee panel on Tuesday, all but guaranteeing the GOP’s 2016 presidential pick will accept the party’s nomination in perennially hard-fought Ohio.

The Republicans’ site selection committee backed Cleveland over donor-rich Dallas, and the full 168-member RNC is expected to ratify the choice next month. The move reflects the role Ohio — and its 18 electoral votes— plays in presidential campaigns.
