County Briefing

Skin cancer screenings

The Columbiana County Health District will host a clinic providing skin cancer screenings by appointment only Thursday at the Health District, 7360 state Route 45, Lisbon. A local physician will staff the clinic and there will be no charge for residents of the General Health District to be screened. Those attending who live outside of the General Health District (Salem and East Liverpool cities) or outside of Columbiana County will be charged $5, which must be paid in cash, for the skin cancer screening service. Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer. More than 800,000 people develop skin cancer each year. Skin cancers are easy to detect and most can be cured when detected early. General health district residents with a suspicious lesion such as a sore that will not heal, a mole or wart that has changed, a change in color pigmentation of the skin, or any skin abnormality may be seen at this clinic. To schedule an appointment for the skin cancer screening clinic call 330-424-0272.

Farmers National Bank of Canfield announced Tuesday it has completed the acquisition of Champion Insurance. The transaction closed on July 1.

Champion Insurance was founded in 1999 by Randy L. Jones and another partner. It will continue to operate under its name from its current location in Champion, Ohio, but is expected to merge with Farmers National Insurance LLC, Farmers’ wholly-owned insurance agency subsidiary.

The strategic acquisition is expected to expand Farmers National Insurance’s current footprint, and will continue its broad array of products and services to include commercial, farm, home, life and auto property/casualty insurance.

“This partnership with Champion enables Farmers to enhance our robust Wealth Management 360 program,” stated Kevin Helmick, President & CEO, Farmers National Bank. “With strong divisions that include Private Banking, Trust, Retirement, Insurance and Investments, Champion Insurance will expand our offerings with their well-established agency.”

Champion Insurance will be a business extension of Farmers’ Wealth Management division, and Farmers’ financial experts will be able to offer full service programs to all current Champion customers including Private Client, Retirement, Investments, Trust and Insurance.

“When Champion Insurance was founded, we focused on customer satisfaction and providing clients with the proper coverage for all their insurance needs,” said Randy L.
