If you visited this year’s Elkhart County 4-H Fair, something might be waiting for you at the fair office. 

Dozens of items were left behind by fairgoers, according to an Elkhart County 4-H Fair blog post. Among those lost items are cellphones, keys, shoes, sunglasses, bags, coolers, hats, clothing, a basketball, a stroller and even a shaving kit.

Lost objects can be retrieved from the fair office until Aug. 29. After that, most items will be sent to local charities. 

Things like single shoes and sippy cups will be thrown away, according to the blog post.

Long seen as having devastated Sun Belt cities, the subprime mortgage crisis unleashed turmoil on Ohio and other rural areas. Now federal officials are pledging regulatory attention and financial help. Subprime loans were distributed in the rural U.S. at even higher rates on average than in metropolitan counties. Much of it was concentrated in Appalachia and other areas stretching from Ohio, West Virginia and Kentucky to Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas and the Great Plains, according to government data provided to The Associated Press by researchers at the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Middlebury College.
