The Beefcake of New Lexington
It's an old city, as American cities go. The original inhabitants were the Mound Builders, or as the village website tells us: "Far back, beyond the memory of men, and even traditions, a race of people lived here before the red man."
Wow, people living here before men and even red men!
"Men" moved to the region in 1817, and named the village after Lexington, Massachusetts.
Today New Lexington "is dedicated to the people of New Lexington." Figures.
Its economy seems to be based mostly on agriculture, although there are a lot of vacation rentals around.
It states that there is a middle school, a high school, and a college. The college is "Hocking College Perry Campus," which looks like a single building out by the fairgrounds.
Its motto is "stuff your face."
There's a bowling alley and a swimming pool.
The news for New Lexington:
New Aldi store opens
Mayor appeals impeachment
Wrestlers win tournament.
I had to shrink them down to 25% to make them small enough to post.
This guy is especially well represented. His mother, who teaches in the school system, has a display of 20 photos of him on her class website. Come for the homework assignment, stay for the beefcake.
And never stop.
Almost makes up for the lack of a swim team, a theater, a used bookstore, or...well just about everything else.
