NAPOLEON All across Ohio, bells are being cast in observance of the states bicentennial. Each of the states 88 counties will experience the magnitude of what it takes to make a 250-pound bell as the Verdin Co. of Cincinnati casts a one-of-a-kind Henry County bell, utilizing its portable foundry. Henry County will celebrate its bell casting during the Henry County Fair in the historical area of the fairgrounds on Tuesday, Aug. 12, and Wednesday, Aug. 13.
