In a two-part series over the weekend, the Columbus Dispatch did a look at what it referred to as Ohio’s “struggling” cities, those not experiencing the benefits enjoyed by other communities as the state’s economy improves.

North central Ohio figures prominently in the posts, with both Mansfield and Marion referenced as examples.

Links to both “The great divide: Many Ohio towns left behind despite strengthening economy” and “Struggling Ohio cities searching for ways to reinvent themselves” can be found in “Hand-Picked Richland News” on the 1812Blockhouse homepage and on mobile.
