MUSH! No, not the breakfast mush. Klondike mush. These Boy Scouts are from Troop 409, and were participating in the annual Klondike Derby

held at the Muskingum Valley Scout Reservation this past weekend. The boys endured high winds but had sunny skies to complete their mission. Troop 409 meets at the West Lafayette First Baptist Church and Steve Bordenkircher is the Scout Master. The troop also hosted the event.

Our lives go on without you But nothing is the same We have to hide our heartache When someone speaks your name Sad are the hearts that love you Silent are the tears that fall Living without you is the hardest part of all You did so many things for us Your heart was so kind and true And when we needed someone We could always count on you The special years will not return When we were all together But with the love in our hearts You will walk with us forever. Very sadly missed by your sister Ellen, brothers Terry (Linda Darlene), Rick (Jane), Matt (Darlene), nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, and all your pets. 0007_012313

of the monies expected to come from District G, of which Warsaw Lions are a part. Unger was also inducted as the club’s newest member in a special ceremony. Governor Johnson also recognized past club President and district governor Robert “Bob” Buxton with a pin for bringing in four new members to the club. Following the meeting, Lauren Unger said about the donation, “It’s overwhelming. It’s very exciting. We’ve put a lot of effort into getting money for our pool.” The current pool is more than 35 years old said Unger. The pool is expected to be ready for the summer season. Unger said, “With the pool we’ll also be getting new water elements so it’s not just a new pool. We’re getting a spray pad and things like that. We’re getting a larger deck so the individuals that don’t want to swim can at least sunbathe. It’s (the pool) a favorite thing when we ask them what they like about camp and they say, “Swimming in the pool.” “We’re so excited about everything the Lions have done for us, not just for the pool but they’ve given us funds for the past 45 years that we’ve been around. They’ve really helped us build all of our major elements at Echoing Hills,” said Unger. MARK@COSHOCTONCOUNTYBEACON.COM

COSHOCTON – The Ohio School Boards Association is celebrating School Board Recognition Month in January to build awareness and understanding of the vital function an elected board of education plays in our society. School Board Recognition Month honors the members of Ohio’s 718 city, exempted village, local and joint vocational boards of education and educational service centers governing boards for their commitment to providing quality public education to Ohio’s school children. The Coshocton City School District is joining with other districts throughout the state to recognize the important contribution school board members make to their communities. “Ohioans benefit every day from the dedicated energies and countless hours devoted by a group of more than 3,400 men and women across the state,” said Dr. David Hire, superintendent. “These public servants are elected to serve

The Coshocton Foundation’s mission statement is “Connecting people who care with causes that matter.” Grants are made in the areas of literacy and education, community improvement, the arts, parks and recreation and health and human service. In Fiscal year 2012, the Coshocton Foundation awarded $150,000 in unrestricted grants, $162,000 in restricted funds, and $198,000 in scholarships. The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum serves the Coshocton community with exhibits and programs that promote the community, preserve local history and educate young and old. The museum also serves the community as a tourist attraction and preserver of cultural artifacts.

investments in new or significantly improved buildings. The business must create at least two new fulltime jobs. The rate and term of the exemption is negotiated by the Coshocton Port Authority along with the impacted local governmental jurisdiction, which would include the township, village or the city and Coshocton County as well as the public school districts.” Jeff McNealey, an attorney at law with Porter Wright, who is helping Clow and McWane Poles move the venture along, discussed with the Commissioners that the two companies plan to do all they can to work together with the county, city and school districts. “We want to be good stewards and take care of the kids,” Crawford said. The Commissioners are part of the Enterprise Zone Committee, which gave Clow its ok to proceed. Mayor Steve Mercer also fully backed Clow. “We (the city) approve and are willing to help where we can,” he said. Commissioner Dane Shryock also was happy to help Clow move forward with its plans. “I think this is great for Coshocton and is what we need,” he said. “They probably could have found other alternatives so I’m glad they decided to stay here. We need what we can get and to grow.” During the meeting the Commissioners also: - Requested a motion to appoint Traci Dennis to fulfill the unexpired term of Kyle Hamilton on the Coshocton County Board of DD. Dennis’ term will be effective immediately. - Requested a motion to sign Resolution 2013-04 to nominate Daniel N. Hardy to the Coshocton County Local Emergency Planning Commission. - Requested a motion to pay an animal claim for Annette Wyler of Fresno, in the amount of $500 as requested by Rusty Dreher, dog warden.

COSHOCTON – Clow Water Systems is excited about a new project and the Coshocton County Commissioners are ready to help them move forward with it in any way they can. The company is making electric poles that are stronger than wooden ones and needs more space to really push the product. “We have expansion opportunities with this product,” said Tom Crawford, vice president/ general manager at Clow. “We could have built a new building on our own site, but the old Pretty Product building is just across the street and vacant. It just made sense to be good community members and use it.” After the building is purchased it will need repairs done to its roof, utilities rerouted and offices, but then it will be the perfect location to get the product moving along. “We are excited about the business and our future,” said Keith Mallett, director of McWane Poles, which is in charge of the new product. “The great advantage to this building is that it will allow us the opportunity to grow. We will have space to add jobs and (manufacturing) lines.” The poles will start out in 18 foot sections that are made at Clow and then put together at McWane Poles to create 50-70 foot poles. “We drill them to utility specs from places like AEP and Frontier Power,” Mallett said. The poles have about a 75 year life expectancy. “We’ve had semis hit these poles and they were still okay,” Crawford said. “It’s amazing what ours can take compared to the wooden poles.” Representatives from the two companies were at the Commissioners Jan. 16 meeting to make an enterprise zone request. According to information from Dorothy Skowrunski, executive director of the Coshocton Port Authority, “The Coshocton County Enterprise Zone (EZ) program allows companies to locate a facility in any township, village or city of Coshocton and receive a partial property tax exemption on new

Coshocton BPW meets



January 23rd, 1973 Coshocton High’s Varsity Wrestling team upped their record for the season to 3-1 by beating Zanesville in a glorious victory of 48-3. The Redskins swept every match with the exception of the 167 pound class. Ed Thornsley had the fastest pin of the season in the heavyweight division as he put down Tom Dick of the Blue Devils in 24 seconds. Dave Skelton of the Redskins pinned his opponent in 1:25. The Coshocton Reserve team also had celebrated a victory of 35-11 over the Blue Devils.


January 28th, 1983 When David Holwick was a junior in high school, he felt like something was missing in his life, when his friend introduced him to Christianity. Now, at the age of 27, he was to be ordained in a special service at the First Baptist Church in West Lafayette. Holwick had a decision to make when going off to college: take a 4-year ROTC scholarship at the school of his choice, or go into ministerial studies without a scholarship. He chose ministry and earned a bachelor’s degree in biblical studies. Holwick enjoyed helping people and hoped that his sermons, which he struggled with in college, would help him reach out to people. He said getting to know people in the church had helped with his sermons because he directed the message to problems people in his church were experiencing.

January 24th, 1963 For those who remember the Green Lantern Inn on 15th Street, this was the day it was consumed by flames. At 5:37 a.m. in 20 below zero temperatures, firefighters rushed to the scene in an attempt to put out the blaze. One of the first responders on the scene said the heat was so intense and the smoke was so thick, nothing from the inside could be seen. With the temperature so low, hoses and pumps froze and firemen had to string hoses more than a block to get water. Only the walls of the building remained after the blaze, the interior and roof being completely destroyed. Luckily, no one was in the building at the time of the fire.

January 25th, 1953 Every town and village in the county opened their doors and their purses for the 15th annual Mothers March on Polio which had been scheduled for later that week. This dramatic one-hour drive was intended to be a climax to the local March of Dimes. It had been reported that the local polio funds had been exhausted in November 1952 and women in the county hoped to scour the entire county to replenish those funds. Those who would not be home during the drive were asked to leave their contributions on their front porch. AWARD

Ann France stands in front of a couple of her art pieces at the Pomerene Center for the Art’s open house for her exhibit. The painting on the left, entitled, “Trillium” won Best of Show at last year’s Coshocton County Fair. France is moving to North Carolina and is selling more than 30 of her pieces for $20 - $50 each. They can be viewed and purchased until Feb. 16. BEACON PHOTO BY BETH SCOTT

Coshocton County, we lived on a farm. I’ve always been an outdoor girl.” France paints mostly with watercolors because she said watercolors are easier to work with and handle. She has more than 30 original paintings for sale at the Pomerene Center, which are being sold for $20 - $50 each. “It’s a very reasonably-priced show being between $20 - $50,” said Kristi Timmons of the Pomerene Center. “You can’t beat that. And, it’s a nice variety. There’s something for everybody. It’s a great opportunity for people to purchase some original art at reasonable prices.” The exhibit will run until Feb. 16 and buyers may pick up their artwork after that date. “It’s just a part of me,” said France. “I’ve painted all my life since the time I was very young.” BETH@COSHOCTONCOUNTYBEACON.COM

COSHOCTON - Ann France grew up in a family who loved art, and she has been painting all of her life. Now, with an imminent move to North Carolina, France is selling some of her artwork at the Pomerene Center for the Arts, located at 317 Mulberry St. France has lived in the county for 47 years. Although some of her work has been featured in other shows at the Pomerene Center, this is her first solo exhibit. Her paintings are also featured at Coshocton County Memorial Hospital, and at the West Lafayette library for the month of January. Most of her artwork is inspired by nature. She paints everything from country barn settings to beautiful arrays of flowers. One of her flower paintings, entitled, “Trillium”, was awarded Best in Show at last year’s Coshocton County Fair. “I’ve always been interested in plants and animals,” said France. “When we moved to

An additional portion also goes directly to the baker to pay for the cookies. The council does not donate money to any other organization. Founded in 1912, Girl Scouts of the USA is the premier leadership development program for all girls from kindergarten through grade 12. The mission is to build girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place. Through activities in science and technology, business and economic literacy and outdoor and environmental awareness, Girl Scouting provides girls with opportunities for fun and friendship, while fostering the development of leadership skills and self-esteem. In 2012, the Girl Scouts observed their 100th anniversary. Any girl may join Girl Scouts at anytime during the year and at anytime from kindergarten through grade 12. Girl Scouts of Ohio’s Heartland Council, headquartered in Columbus, serves more than 31,000 girls and more than 9,000 adult members and volunteers in 30 counties: Adams, Ashland, Coshocton, Crawford, Delaware, Fairfield, Fayette, Franklin, Gallia, Guernsey, Highland,


COLUMBUS - “What Can a Girl Do?” That’s the theme of the Girl Scout Cookie Program and it reminds girls they have the power to do anything with the lifetime of skills and confidence they gain through Girl Scouting. Troops in Girl Scouts of Ohio’s Heartland Council began selling eight varieties of delicious Girl Scout cookies beginning Sunday, Jan. 13. Girls will take orders throughout this month and sell cookies at cookie booths from March to Sunday, April 7, when the program ends. Cookie types available this year include: Thin Mints, Samoas, Savannah Smiles, Tagalongs, Trefoils, Do-Si-Dos, Dulce de Leche and Thank You Berry Munch. For the first time since 1999, all boxes of Girl Scout Cookies have a new look and a new purpose: To elevate the significance of the Girl Scout Cookie Program, a $790-million girlled business. The iconic Girl Scout Cookie package showcases the five financial literacy and entrepreneurship skills that the Girl Scout Cookie Program teaches girls, skills that will last them a lifetime: Goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics. Hundreds of girls shared their excitement for the Cookie Program at two council-sponsored Cookie Rallies Saturday, Jan. 12. Then on Friday, Feb. 8, Girl Scouts everywhere will revel in National Girl Scout Cookie Day - a day designed to celebrate the Girl Scout Cookie Program - the largest girl-led business in the world - and the five life skills the program helps girls develop. Customers will have the power to find nearby cookie booths with help from the Official Girl Scouts of USA Cookie Locator app again this year. The free app helps iPhone and Android users locate cookie booths throughout the council’s 30 counties. The app also offers cookie sale data from around the country, including the start and end of local cookie seasons to specific locations of sales, plus interactive features.

Group offers support to caregivers of Alzheimer’s patients


COSHOCTON – Caring for someone with Alzheimer’s can be a long journey. “Some people live 20 years or more after the diagnoses and some just a few years,” said Ralph Myers. Myers, who cared for his late wife who suffered from Alzheimer’s, helps Cathy Hudson, from Health Services of Coshocton, lead the local Alzheimer’s Association Caregiver Support Group. “We try really hard to be available as the caregivers go on this journey,” Hudson said. The group meets at 6:30 p.m. the last Thursday of every month at Health Services of Coshocton. “We are a support group,” Myers said. “We listen and make suggestions about where people can get the information they need. It’s easy for a caregiver to think they are in this themselves, but others have walked in their steps before.” Attendees of the meetings are welcome to share as little or as much about their caregiving experiences. “What is said in the room stays in the room,” Myers said. Hudson also said that no one passes judgment for how each caregiver is handling their situation. “What worked for Ralph and his wife might not work for another family,” she said. Myers felt he was very fortunate with how Alzheimer’s impacted his wife. “She was very easy to care for,” he said. “She was never aggressive and that’s not so in many cases.” Myers got involved with the Caregiver Support Group so he could share his experiences with others dealing with a loved one who has Alzheimer’s and offer them support and guidance. “It’s a mental disease,” Myers said. “A lot of people are reluctant to talk about it, but it’s not the patient’s, caregiver’s or anyone’s fault that it happened. There is no way of preventing it, putting it in remission or curing it.” There are medicines out there that doctors can prescribe, but they offer no magical solution. “They can help slow the progression of the disease, but the inevitable is going to happen,”

Hudson said. Having that knowledge was probably the hardest aspect of his wife’s disease for Myers to deal with. “It was tough knowing she was not going to get better,” he said. “I like knowing that I can do something now to help someone else in that situation. There are a lot of Alzheimer’s patients out there and caregivers with no support.” Hudson said there can be anywhere from two to seven people at their support group meetings and she and Myers would love for more to come. “We have a little library and a notebook full of information on suggestions for dealing with behaviors, the holidays, driving and Dementia and more,” Hudson said. “I just wish we could reach more people.” She and Myers both volunteer their time to run the support group, which is overseen by the Greater East Ohio Area Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association. The association trains them both and provides them with pamphlets and information to copy and share with support group members. “Ralph also is very valuable,” Hudson said. “He learned to do things and developed ways of his own to keep his wife safe that he can share. He has a wealth of knowledge and so much wisdom.” Hudson and Myers might not be able to give you all the answers, but they can definitely give you a shoulder to lean on. “There are no set rules to caring for someone who has Alzheimer’s,” Myers said. “Every patient is different and you have to prepare for the unexpected. There will be surprises, all kinds of surprises.” Hudson also likes to remind people that Alzheimer’s takes over the mind of your loved one. “It’s not truly them anymore,” she said. “It’s the disease causing them to be angry, nasty and rude. You can’t take it to heart so much.” What you can do is not punish yourself. “Remember you are doing the best you can,” Myers said. JOSIE@COSHOCTONCOUNTYBEACON.COM

Flu should be taken seriously COSHOCTON – Cases of flu are on the rise and TJ Moore, physician assistant, director of QuickCare Department at Coshocton Hospital, is urging people to be careful. “We are seeing a substantial increase in flu cases this year compared to last year,” he said. “Some years you are hit hard with the flu and others it is not as bad, but this year it is bad nationwide.” According to Moore, certain parts of the population need to be particularly cautions when it comes to the flu. “Our biggest concern is for people who have immune system problems like diabetes and congestive heart failure,” he said. “We also worry about the elderly and the younger population. Having the flu is one thing, but sometimes you can get a secondary infection. If you aren’t getting better in four to 11 days you need to seek treatment.” Common signs of the flu are: High fever, aches, dry cough, sore throat and runny nose. “It seldom comes with vomiting and diarrhea,” Moore said. To help prevent the spread of the flu, Moore suggests coughing into your arm or sleeve, wash your hands right away and wipe down your carts with sanitizer when you go shopping.

Custom Made Harness, Leather & Bio-Plastic

“You’ve gotten over the flu when your symptoms are gone and you have no fever or body aches,” Moore said. Unfortunately there is no magic cure for the flu. “Tylenol and Motrin can help you with the fever but the real keys are to getting plenty of rest and fluids,” Moore said. “You also don’t want to push yourself. People can have significant problems when they don’t give themselves time to heal.” He also wants to remind the public to pay attention to the visitor restrictions posted at the Hospital that are designed to help protect patients from the influenza virus and that it is not too late to get the flu shot. “You can’t get the flu from the flu shot,” Moore said. “That is an old wives tale.” People also shouldn’t hesitate being seen by a medical professional if they feel it is necessary. “If you aren’t getting better and your symptoms become worse or different don’t hesitate to get checked out,” Moore said. “Don’t mess around because that’s when you could develop an issue that can cause trouble.” JOSIE@COSHOCTONCOUNTYBEACON.COM

Final push made for United Way campaign

CAMPAIGN The United Way campaign stands at 92 percent of its $380,000 goal having collected more than $350,000 in donations and pledges so far. Pictured is Lyn Mizer, executive director of United Way.

Clow, AK Steel, CCMH, Annin Flag Makers and Jones Metal. RockTenn has also set itself ahead of the United Way campaign as Top Giver for nine out of 10 years. “That is an example of the entire team setting a high personal standard,” Mizer said. “RockTenn has been our own personal rock!” The United Way campaign stands at 92 percent of its $380,000 goal having collected more than $350,000 in donations and pledges so far. Last year the goal of $365,000 was exceeded by $12,000 and so the board voted to add two new agencies, Hope Clinic and Coshocton C.A.R.E.S bringing the total number to 20 local agencies. Those new agencies, along with the other 18 will receive allocations based on the actual monies received from last year and the needs of each agency.

Plant manager, Kurt Bain has been a dedicated United Way supporter both personally and professionally. “Kurt has set a tremendous example for his employees and it has made a big difference,” Mizer said.

Gibbs gives statement on Obama’s executive orders on gun violence reduction CONTRIBUTED TO THE BEACON WASHINGTON, DC - U.S. Rep. Bob Gibbs (ROH) released the following statement following President Obama’s remarks Jan. 16 on gun violence: “In the wake of the Newtown, Conn. shootings last month, it is imperative that we not let the memories of those 26 innocent victims be politicized by either side of the debate. President Obama announced several executive orders and proposals, some of which come with a significant cost, and it will take some time to review the details of his plan. Without debating the specifics

of all that the President released, I want to say that I agree with him that we must identify ways to ensure that our children are safe and protected from those who wish to do them harm. However, I do not believe that hampering the constitutional rights of law-abiding gun owners is the way to achieve that goal. We must have a national discussion on treating mental illness and ways to better enforce current laws. Now is not the time to use this tragedy as exploitation for the gun control lobby. Doing so demeans the memories of those innocent lives that were so tragically taken.”

COSHOCTON - As people throughout Coshocton County were ringing in the New Year with parties and celebrations, Kristi DeMeo was in labor as she and her husband Michael maneuvered icy streets on their 25 minute drive from home to Coshocton Hospital. Their celebration began at 10:04 a.m. as they welcomed their son, Deakon Emmanual, the First Coshocton Hospital Baby of the New Year. Michael DeMeo beamed as he spoke of the Jan. 1 arrival of his 9.2 ounce, 22 inch son. “I’m on cloud nine,” he said. “I don’t believe my feet have touched the ground since he was born!” The DeMeos are both employed by Buehler’s Food Market; Kristi works in the kitchen and Michael in the meat department. They were married in October, and starting a family together had always been a part of their plan. “Deakon was a happy surprise,” said Kristi. “We’ve ended up doing what we wanted to do, just not in the order we had planned.” Deakon is welcomed to the family by his six-anda-half-year-old brother Conner Blakley, maternal grandparents Mike and Sheri Jones of West Lafayette and fraternal grandparents Ronald and Elsie DeMeo of Mineral City. When asked what plans Kristi and Michael have made for Deakon’s future, their shared response was to plan the best for him, but let him be who he wants to be. They added that his brother may have plans of his own, suggesting Conner is anxious to share is love of sports – especially softball – with his new little brother. To celebrate Deakon’s arrival as the first baby of the year, Coshocton Hospital Birthing Centre staff presented the family with a basket of gifts for the newborn. The basket contained a variety of infant necessities including diapers, sleepers, electrical outlet covers, a booster seat, receiving blankets and toys.

College Goal Sunday is presented by the Ohio Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (OASFAA) and endorsed by the Ohio Board of Regents OASFAA is a non-profit, professional organization for individuals actively engaged in the administration of financial aid within the State of Ohio for higher education.
