A few employees proclaimed “there’s the next Smith Dairy president,” recalled Steve Schmid, Nate’s father, who had served as president since 1986 at the business that Schmid’s grandfather, John J.

Editor’s note: According to Green.Ohio.com readers, the top story of 2012 in Green is the new Acme Fresh Market.
