Henry County took a one-two punch this week.
An embroidery plant there has closed down and filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, leaving county officials with a potentially messy situation.

5-Bs came to Henry County two years ago promising one-thousand new jobs.

It's also a reminder to Henry County officials of the financial burdens they soon could face.

The Ohio-based 5-Bs owes some 9-point-five million dollars to private Henry County creditors...an amount they won't be seeing any time soon.

One way to reclaim some of the losses is to get ownership of the plant building.
