The Fort Jennings Bear Cub Scout Den participated in an adventure to WDOH 107.1 Saturday morning. Bob Ulm explained the workings of a radio station and interacted with the boys, teaching them how he does his job. He “showed” them how he doesn’t let being blind keep him from doing what he loves. The Scouts found Ulm’s use of voice technology to use his computer and radio equipment amazing. Ulm let each of the Scouts do a voice recording they emailed to their parents. (Submitted photo)

Putnam County was once again ranked as the second-healthiest of Ohio’s 88 counties.

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, in conjunction with the University of Wisconsin has again compiled its County Health Rankings, a tool it have developed so that counties can see how their health ranks with that of other counties in the state. Ohio and county data are now on the County Health Rankings website countyhealthrankings.org. These rankings have been released annually since 2010.
