Mary Alice Reporting –

~ Sentencing has been delayed for Jeffrey Pringle after a miscommunication. The 59-year-old was jailed on rape and gross sexual imposition charges related to incidents involving two victims between the ages of eight to 12 years and 12 to 14 years old. During Tuesday’s hearing, the prosecutor asked for a continuance in light of a date error for the victim’s mother to be present in the courtroom during the sentencing. The date has now moved to February 9th. Pringle remains incarcerated at the Tuscarawas County Jail.


~ A fund has been approved, by the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District, to invest $5 million. The fund will be managed by the Foundation for Appalachian Ohio (FAO), which is a regional foundation serving 32 counties to inspire and support philanthropy by investing in the Pillars of Prosperity Fund. These five areas include education, health and human services, community and economic development, arts and culture, and environmental stewardship. The MWCD’s recent five- year strategic plan focuses on areas of conservation and sustainability, with the plan aligning with the FAO’s pillars.


~ The Better Together Awards is a way to recognize and celebrate community partners with Tuscarawas County Board of Developmental Disabilities. Nominations are currently being accepted and will be judged by the Tuscarawas County Commissioners. The award categories include standing ovation, ripple effect, diamond award, and better together. All nominees must align with the individual award guidelines and how that person has made an impact in the area.

TuscBDD will hold a Community Partners Pancake Breakfast, at Tuscora Park, on March 28th to present the 2023 awards.
