Monday, December 02, 2013 2:54 PM

PAULDING – On Monday afternoon, Dec. 2, Paulding County Sheriff Jason Landers issued the following press release:


“In attempt to keep the citizens informed, I would like to report BCI&I’s finding in regards to ‘the shoe’ that was found in the old Paulding County Jail on Oct. 11, 2013. It was believed the shoe might have been missing evidence in relationship to a 1960 unsolved murder of Nancy Eagleson.

“If anyone has information regarding this case, drug activity or any other crime, please contact the sheriff’s office at 419-399-3791. You can also leave information via Facebook by searching Facebook/Paulding County Sheriff’s Office. View our website at www.pauldingohsheriff.com and leave an email for the sheriff. Or you may also leave an anonymous tip via the website by scrolling to the bottom of any page and clicking on ‘send us an anonymous tip.’”

Asked if BCI investigators were able determine anything else about the shoe, such as age, Landers responded, “When I submitted it they could only look for biological evidence and that’s all they were going to do.”

Wednesday, November 27, 2013 10:17 AM

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Most Americans know Black Friday and Cyber Monday are big days for holiday shopping. But between the two is another important part of the holiday shopping season – Small Business Saturday, a day that is dedicated to supporting the small businesses that anchor our local communities and strengthen our economy.

“From the Main Street shops to the high-tech startups, small businesses are the backbone of our economy and the cornerstones of a diverse and thriving marketplace. These businesses create two out of every three net new private sector jobs, and half of working Americans either own or work for a small business,” said Jeanne Hulit, acting administrator of the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).
