State budget shortfall causes termination
By Shelley Grieshop
Todd Mangen, director of the Ohio State University Extension office in Mercer County, will be out of a job in May as a direct result of funding shortfalls at the state level.
Mangen, who also is a field educator in charge of numerous agriculture and environmental programs, has served the county for about five years. He was one of 22 OSU extension agents terminated last week as part of an overall restructuring project the agency is undergoing to combat budget cuts. [More]
