(Wilmington, Ohio) For the third year in a row, the Clinton County Port Authority has been selected by Ohio Business Magazine as a “Best Workplace in Ohio.”
The magazine’s annual program recognizes workplaces in a variety of categories, with the Port Authority honored as a government entity with fewer than 50 employees. Nominations, which were submitted in May, collected information about employee engagement, benefits, and awards and recognitions. A committee compiled by the magazine selected the winners.

For most counties, having an official 80-mile “Donut Trail” encompassing 13 self-described “mom-and-pop donut shops” would be enough. But Ohio’s Butler County — which established its trail back in 2015 — wants more. And in honor of National Donut Day on June 3, the county is putting a Swedish jewel in its crown, teaming up with none other than Ikea for a special stop on the trail and featuring an actual Swedish meatball donut.
