Dean of Business College Featured on WEWS-TV 5 News Segment

Dr. Elad Granot, dean of the Dauch College of Business and Economics, was featured on a WEWS-TV 5 Cleveland news segment with Jonathan Walsh. Dr. Granot spoke about Ohio's tax-free weekend as a part of the On Your Side investigation that looked into whether the tax holiday really saves people money. Granot called the tax-free weekend a political stunt.

"The data shows that for the state it's pretty much a wash," Granot said. "They're not losing any revenue because most of the consumers will walk into stores and buy stuff that's covered by the tax break but then buy a lot more things that are not."

AU Students Lend a Hand with Business Transformation

With help from several students from Ashland University's Enactus organization, Kid's Kountry & More owner Janice Glenn is transforming a storage area in the back of the store into a Red Wing shoe department with a separate entrance off South Street.

Glenn purchased the business last July and began carrying men's and women's Red Wing shoes to fill what she said was a void left when Jim's Shoe Store and Repair closed. But trying to sell a brand known for men's work boots out of a children's store presented the challenge of taking on a renovation project and creating a marketing campaign on a shoestring budget.
