12/27/17 – The Columbia County district attorney plans to file theft charges against the former executive director of the Midwest Horse Fair next month. Fifty-year-old Rhonda Reese of Columbus is accused of stealing almost 240-thousand dollars. Investigators say she used the money to pay college tuition and make personal purchases. Reese was fired in July and she was arrested during a traffic stop in Columbus last week, making a court appearance last Thursday. She was head of the horse fair from 2007 to 2017.
