— We see you over there, Xenia.
Some great places to explore have opened in Greene County’s county seat in the last few years.
Here are a few reasons to visit Xenia soon.
Spots like Nick’s Restaurant have long been go-to places, but there are a few relatively new kids on the block.
One Bistro, 87 E. Main St., has great food — and you can help those in need.

As with the Miamisburg location, the Xenia restaurant has suggested prices on its meals ranging from $6 to $9, but people can also pay what they can afford.
Paying a little more than the recommended amount “pays it forward” and helps feed needy people.
Other options include Tables of Contents Cafe, 30 S. Detroit St., and 5 Points Cafe. That breakfast and lunch spot is located at 51 E. Main St.

Downtown Xenia is the home of one of the Miami Valley’s newest breweries.
Devil Wind Brewing recently opened its doors in a 3,000-square-foot space at 130 S. Detroit St. It is just steps from the bike path.
The 90-seat brewery gets its name from historical reports that the Shawnee Indians that inhabited Greene County referred to the Xenia area as “Land of the Devil Wind.”

Route 68 Vintage Toys and Collectibles is a nerd paradise.
Located at 68 S. Detroit St., the recently opened shop has both vintage Star Wars and Star Trek toys and tons of other vintage toys that will take you back to your childhood.

MONTGOMERY COUNTY — Five credit card skimmers were found in gas pumps during a sweep of area stations last weekend, according to Montgomery County Auditor Karl Keith.
This was the first discovery of multiple skimmers at one time since August 2013 and was the most-ever reported in a three-day period in one Ohio county, Keith said during a press conference Tuesday morning.
The skimmers were found at stations in Germantown, Miamisburg, Moraine, and West Carrollton, as a part of a larger sweep that covered Butler, Franklin, Greene, Hamilton, Montgomery and Warren counties.
Nearly 800 pumps were checked in 100 separate locations across the six counties, but no other devices were found in other counties, Keith said.
“All of the skimmers we found had been installed in the same type of fuel dispensers,” Keith said.
“The criminals who placed these devices were clearly targeting stations with these type of gas pumps because of their vulnerability and ease of access.”
The locations where skimmers were found were:
The skimmers were Bluetooth-enabled, meaning those who set up the devices didn’t have to return to the pumps directly to retrieve the data collected, Keith said.
Consumers who purchased fuel at the pump at the affected locations are urged to monitor bank accounts and credit card statements and report any suspicious activity to the financial institution.
Keith also urged consumers to always use a credit card, rather than a debit card, when paying for fuel at the pump as another layer of protection for consumers.
“This threat is real. It is ongoing and it demands that it be taken seriously,” Keith said.
