Debi Froehlich looks at a large mural of the untouched original landscape of the town of Steubenville, Ohio, Friday, October 26, 2012. Debi, who owns Froehlich Classic Corner restaurant with her husband Greg, also owns the much larger building the restaurant occupies which was at one point the electric company for the town. This room used to be a Jaguar automobile museum and is now used as space for parties and weddings. Once a productive steel town, Steubenville, Ohio's population has contracted faster than anywhere else in the country between 1980 and 2000 as their steel plants shut down. The area has seen a drop in unemployment in recent years due in part to the prospects of natural gas but the city still has a long way to go with unemployment figures higher then the the rest of the state and the country.
