In Wilmington, Ohio, Sherry Barrett is crying.
Like many areas in the United States, Sherry's hometown of Wilmington, Ohio has been devastated by the economic meltdown. Local employer DHL Express will close its factory on January 30, laying off 8,200 workers like Sherry. In a city of 12,000, with thousands more in the surrounding area, you can bet Sherry isn't the only one crying.
But if you don't enjoy watching Sherry and other Wilmington residents cry, you're not alone -- two recent college grads from Wilmington don't much like it either. Their bold solution: ENERGIZE Clinton County, a bold plan to revitalize Wilmington by recruiting green businesses and turning the county into Ohio's first "Green Enterprise Zone." Over the flip, I'll tell you how they plan to do it, and what you can do to help.
