Planes, trains and automobiles are driving opportunities here. Just about a half-hour north of Ohio`s capital Columbus, the county offers easy access to the rest of the Midwest thanks to its municipal airport, service from CSX and Norfolk Southern Railroads, and proximity to I-71.

No wonder the county has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the state. Manufacturing is a major source of jobs, and small businesses that make everything from auto parts to diapers have been ramping up production.

Meanwhile, Mount Carmel St. Anne`s recently broke ground on a $110 million heart center. The facility, expected to open its doors in 2013, should add 60 hospital beds and about 200 new jobs to the area.
