Leading up to the holidays, we’re spotlighting some of the incredible non-profits in our area. First up is Jane MacMurchy and Animal Charity of Ohio. This organization is near and dear to our hearts, and the work they do to rescue animals and place them in homes around the Valley is simply inspiring. It takes special people to do this work and each and every person at Animal Charity is just that. You can find out more information and make a contribution at www.animalcharityofohio.org

What does it mean to go all in on your vision? To visionary, entrepreneur, Youngstown evangelist, and now commercial property owner Derrick McDowell, it means making a difference and transforming a community.

Cody Greene, Crooked Tongue Brewery

Finally made my way to Crooked Tongue– while just over the Pennsylvania border Crooked Tongue is still part of our market and the Brewers Guild which is growing all the time. Sitting on over two areas of land, this brewery sits right off of rt. 422.  A native to Edinburg, Cody Greene decided to establish his business right near where he grew up. With plenty of space outdoors and five fire pits, these fall nights are perfect for a visit to Crooked Tongue. Bring your own marshmallows and enjoy!

Ep.49- Bryan Blakeman, Mayor of Columbiana

As you may have heard on this podcast, Columbiana is on fire and Mayor Bryan Blakeman is a big part of why. Vision, a willingness to take chances, transparency and collaboration are driving the city forward resulting in one of the hottest areas in the region. A great conversation enjoyed with some Modern Methods.
