Conesville Elementary School this past Saturday for the annual Cub Scout pack 438 “Pinewood Derby”. The derby is a tradition in scouting with a purpose that goes way beyond winning a trophy. The Pinewood Derby is about boys and their fathers, and in some cases, mothers, building a wooden model car that meets specific weight and size specifications. Each Cub Scout begins with an identical kit. The modifying and adding of weights – sanding, putting graphite on the axles, painting, adding decals and shaping the wood is as unique as each young man that participates. 36 Cub Scouts participated in the Pinewood Derby, with each receiving a trophy regardless of how they placed. A double elimination method was used to determine the various den placements, and then those 12 raced for the overall championship. Braiden Davis was the overall winner, with second place going to Luke Brown and third place to William Webster.

Our Appreciation to You As Sharon and I look at the order for 29,000 pounds of food that has been ordered for the first month of 2010 our minds go back 7 years when our first order for food was 3,000 pounds. Much more has the need in our county been elevated in those 7 years and much more has the county factories, churches, organizations and individuals stepped up to meet that need in finance and labor contributions to the Open Food Pantry in Nellie. Without this support from you all, the Open Food Pantry could not continue to exist or operate. I would like to thank first of all the Mayor of Nellie, Jeff Wherley, and the Nellie Village Council members for allowing us to use the Community Building for our distribution and storage needs. Nellie is a small town with a big heart. Also the County Commissioners for their help with the building. And I would like to thank the following organizations: Interim Healthcare, Longaberger Company, Coshocton County Board of Realtors, Tiverton Home Economics, Club 10, Crop Walk, Coshocton County Auditor Employees, Walhonding Valley Grange, River View FFA, Warsaw Elementary School Students and Teachers, River View School Superintendent Kyle Kanuckel and the many individuals who gave from their heart, cash donations. The following United Methodist Churches: Prairie Chapel, Roscoe, Warsaw, Canal Lewisville, Keene and Nellie. Gospel Hill Ministry, Warsaw United Presbyterian Church, Dutch Run Trinity Church, Solid Rock Four Square Church, New Life Ministries, River View Ministerial Association and the Coshocton Central Christian Church. We are currently serving just under 700 people each month. We praise and thank God that we are in partnership with Mid-Ohio Foodbank, a very caring organization. We are also very thankful that we are in partnership with grumpy old Mark Granger at New Life Ministries in Coshocton – a man with a heart of gold. Please pray for the ones that come through our Pantry and Mark’s, that they find jobs to take care of their families. Most of them don’t want to come through our pantries but have no choice. And last, but not least, pray for us that we still have the strength and ability to do God’s work that he has set before us. God Bless You.

by mark fortune Each Cub Scout carefully placed their car on the metal track and proceeded to the finish line, and in a true spirit of sportsmanship, often received “high fives” along the way from members of their own den. The scouts then watched with trepidation as the cars were released and rolled down the incline, gathering speed as they hurtled to the finish line. The winner was normally humble and more than one “Congratulations” was voiced among the scouts. Brendan Shrimplin, who placed first among the Wolf den, had this to say about his car, “I pulled out the wheels, put graphite on the wheels and made the car thin with a hump so air would flow over it. My dad and grandpa helped me at my grandpa’s friend’s workshop. My car has six coats of paint”. When asked about his victory, Brendan humbly stated, “It felt good to win”. Wyatt Rohrbaugh came down sick with the flu on Friday night before the event, so his 12 year old sister Samantha filled in at the race. She said, “It’s very nerve wracking. I watched he and Dad build the car and I’ve been to every one of these so I’m pretty familiar with how it works”. Sister did pretty well for her brother as she finished second among the Bear den. The “Best of Show” trophy went to Kaden Poorman, who designed and painted a camouflaged armored vehicle complete with gun turret and cannon. Shanda Huston, who is the cub master for Pack 438, remarked, “This event teaches the boys sportsmanship and about winning and losing, which are a part of life. They get to work with their Dad’s, Grandpa’s, uncles and Moms to build their car. And they get the chance to have some fun. I would like to thank all of the committee members, den leaders and parents for making today a great success”. Cub Scout Pack 438 meets at the Prairie Chapel United Methodist Church, who is their chartering organization.

uted to the beacon Refresh your mind and your imagination at A Playground of Color, the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum’s thirteenth special exhibit of children’s art. Nearly 400 works are on display, overwhelming the Montgomery Gallery with color, energy and whimsy. The exhibit runs now until March 28 and is also showing concurrently at the Coshocton and West Lafayette Libraries. Artwork for A Playground of Color comes from students in kindergarten through sixth grade who attend elementary and middle schools in Coshocton’s city and county schools as well as from home schools. Works are chosen by the students’ art teachers for their creativity and excellence. The exhibit shows off a remarkable variety of artistic styles and media and includes both two and three-dimensional pieces. Take a walk around the gallery and you’ll understand that these students aren’t just playing with crayons and scissors. They are learning about perspective, primitive cave art, Expressionism, Pop Art, still life, graphic art and more, using watercolors, pastels, mixed media-collage, pen and crayon. Their work is very good and, of course, fresh as they present a variety of images, from landscapes and animal life to tribal masks and self portraits. You won’t want to miss this exhibit, an excellent antidote for the winter blues. It’s a fun experience for both young and old. The Museum is open Tuesday through Sunday from 1 – 4:30 p.m. Admission is $3 for adults, $2 for children, and $8 for families. Wednesdays are free for Coshocton County residents. A Playground of Color is sponsored by Elks Lodge Coshocton 376. For more information, contact the museum at 740-622-8710 or via email at jhmuseum@sbcglobal.net or visit their web site at www.jhmuseum.org.

The United Way is a vital part of our community because of the funds it raises to help support our 20 partner agencies along with the three programs that are overseen by the United Way office. The agencies and programs do amazing things 365 days of the year. However, their funds continue to be stretched and budgets are cut. Many of these programs rely heavily on funds raised through the United Way to keep their doors open and continue to provide the programs that are so desperately needed here in Coshocton County.

However, this year, with a reduced budget to work with and significantly increased postage due to restrictions with bulk mailings, we have decided that it would be more financially responsible to use the money in the spirit in which it was given -- to directly help our neighbors.

We would also like to assure the community that we work hard to make sure all United Way funds are used very responsibly. Thank you for supporting United Way and our partner agencies.

I just can’t thank these people enough.” Kids America had a radiologist, a registered nurse and two physical training students working out at the facility. They also have an emergency defribulator. All staff at Kids America are required to take training with the defribulator. Kids America has dealt with injuries before, but never a massive heart attack. Luckily, the response was immediate and the staff is trained on how to deal with this type of situation. “Only three staff were here when it happened,” said Renner, “but the other members really helped.

Peter Shults of Newcomerstown is a regular member at Kids America. He enjoys walking there three times a week and walks five miles a day. But on Monday, Jan. 18, his walk was cut short when Shults had a massive heart attack and collapsed on the track. Another member saw the incident and immediately reported it to staff members. They rushed to the scene and administered CPR, called the ambulance, and brought their emergency defribulator. Shults had no pulse. When the ambulance arrived, full CPR was in progress. Shults was immediately rushed to the hospital where they frantically tried to save his life. Finally, they detected a sign of hope: a faint pulse. He was then lifeflighted to The Ohio State University Medical Center where he had a catherization and a triple bypass surgery. Shults had 95% blockage. “The immediate response saved his life,”

When selecting a home healthcare provider, it is important to consider a number of factors. Is the agency accredited and licensed by the state? Your state’s Department of Health can provide you with a list of licensed agencies. Consider how established the agency is and what services it offers, as well as the number of clients it serves. It is also important to fi nd out what procedures the provider has established to handle emergencies. Another key issue would be whether the agency sends the same individual each time, or if it varies. Also, learn what hours and days services are available. At INTERIM HEALTHCARE OF COSHOCTON, our companions are bonded, insured and thoroughly screened. Also, we’ve been Medicare certified for more than 28 years.

Red Cross to have lifeguard training

COLUMBUS - The Department of Motor Vehicles in the state of Ohio has given drivers a grace period when renewing their driver’s license. Technically, a driver’s license expires on your birthday at midnight, but effective last October, drivers now have a seven – day grace period in which they will not be punished for forgetting to renew their license. For example, if your birthday is Feb. 1, you now have until Feb. 8 to renew your license. If you wait longer, there will be a $20 late fee applied to all late license and vehicle registration renewals. Over $6 million dollars has already been collected from drivers who have forgotten to renew their license during that time. For more information, contact the Coshocton County Department of Motor Vehicles at 622-8031. Proud to have served the people of Coshocton and our surrounding communities for over 113 years!

added on to the store two years ago to expand the bridesmaid department, the recent addition was definitely needed. “We just opened a new 2000 square foot wing that is dedicated strictly to the bridal department,” she said. “We now have nearly 18,000 square feet of space with 40 dressing rooms and 6,000 dresses in the store. With 1,500 bridal gowns, 1,500 bridesmaid gowns and over 3,000 prom gowns, we are now officially the largest prom and bridal store in the state.” Misener says that with the additional space, she was excited to be able to add more designers to her inventory of dresses as well as more bridal and prom accessories. “We now have the room to accommodate a line of designer purses, more jewelry and shoes,” she said. “Plus, I am thrilled that I now have room to offer designer dresses with lower price points which is great for those on tighter budgets such as brand new bridal gowns starting at $149 and prom gowns starting at $49.99. We want to be able to offer a great selection in all price ranges.” The Unusual Junction is also home to a gourmet deli and market and Lava Rock Grill restaurant, which has also recently expanded. Misener says it may seem to be an odd combination—bridal gowns, cheeses, trail bologna and a restaurant, but customers love it. “It is fun to see brides leaving the store with their gown in one hand, and a to-go box from the restaurant and a bag of cheese in the other hand,” she said.

The father and son combo of Chris and Marcus McVey bowled a 1376 series to win the fifth annual Coshocton city adult / youth bowling tournament on Sunday. The tournament, coordinated by Angie Adams and Jeff Oswald, was held at the Coshocton Bowling Center on Sunday, Jan. 24 and had 40 teams competing. The tournament was started so the adult and youth league bowlers of the Coshocton Bowling Center could compete together in a tournament style format. The adult and youth format allows adult bowlers to give younger bowlers advice and encouragement, have fun and enjoy some pizza and pop provided by the Coshocton Bowling Center. The entry fee was $15 per team and bowlers could form a team to bowl in each the 10 am and the 1 pm shift, or only bowl one time. In second place was the team of Jacob Bradford and John George with a 1353 series while Cassidy Johnson and Tony West earned third with a 1341 series. Marcus McVey had this to say about the win, “It felt really good to win. I had to keep my arm straight and had several strikes and picked up some good spares”. Dad Chris remarked, “It feels really good to win with my son – I would encourage other people and families to consider bowling as a great time to spend time together”. The pair has only been bowling for two years. 11 year old Tyler Crowthers, who started in the bumper league in 2002, had this to say about bowling, “Well, it’s fun to bowl and to get strikes and spares – my goal is to get a 300 someday. My most proud achievement is a high score of 152, and a 400 series. I also went to the state championship a couple of years ago. Bowling is fun because it helps your arm; its exercise and when it’s raining outside you can go to the bowling alley and roll some balls”. 8 year old Marie Stufflebean said about her bowling on Sunday, “I got a lot of strikes and spares today. I beat my average! I like bowling because I get good scores. Absolutely, it’s fun!” 7 year old Allie Murray added this, “Getting lots of strikes is the most fun but also the hardest

prepare a more formal dinner, then you might want to incorporate beef. Filets are always a palate pleaser, but if you are looking for more cost-effective and just as tasty cuts, then rib-eyes or New York strips can be your staples. Instead of beef, pork tenderloins are also a healthy and tasty cut of meat and easy to prepare. Simply cook in the oven on a roasting rack or sheet pan for 15 minutes at 500 degrees and then let rest for 15 minutes. The tenderloin will come out perfect every time. As a side dish, halve a few pounds of red new potatoes, boil until fork tender and coat them in a mixture of horseradish and basil pesto for a zesty taste. Chocolate is a nice finish to any meal and is always a welcome Valentine’s Day treat. “Interactive desserts are great because they are always fun and can bring a smile to the faces of everyone involved,” says Alexander. “Try an ice cream sundae bar with lots of fun Valentine’s Day-inspired toppings such as heart-shaped chocolates, Red Hots candy and red and pink sprinkles, all on top of scoops of red raspberry ice cream.” For a more romantic touch, try the iconic strawberries dipped in dark chocolate. Whatever you choose to do this Valentine’s Day, keep your plans simple and heartfelt with a special dinner for friends and family as a terrific option to celebrate this day of love.

(ARA) - Valentine’s Day is no longer just a romantic day that is reserved only for lovers it has grown to include friends and family with widespread celebrations. Try a role reversal with either friends or family members and give the usual cook a well-deserved break. Small and thoughtful acts can have a large impact this holiday. “I feel that the most valuable thing we can do for those we love is to do something a little out of the ordinary such as a Valentine’s Day family dinner,” says Andrea Alexander, academic director for The International Culinary School at The Art Institute of Austin. “It does not have to be an expensive or time-consuming event but rather, a moment to share thoughts, feelings, smiles and laughter.” According to Alexander, the Valentine’s Day dinner does not have to be any more difficult than any other meal; just add creativity and a lively atmosphere. A fun menu idea is to purchase individual pizza crusts and an array of fresh toppings such as red, yellow or green bell peppers; halved cherry tomatoes and olives; diced sweet onions, pepperoni or shredded chicken breast; and don’t forget the pizza sauce and mozzarella cheese. “Let each friend or family member assemble their own pizza and then have a tasting party to experience each of the pizzas,” says Alexander.

Amanda McCoy, renowned artist, coming home to give a soulful performance Coshocton native Amanda McCoy, currently of Nashville, TN, plans to have a CD release party in honor of her newly-released EP entitled Jade. This event is free and open to the public and will take place at the Coshocton Elks Lodge on Saturday, Jan. 30, starting at 8 p.m. McCoy will deliver a special and intimate acoustic performance at 9 p.m. followed by a meet and greet with guests. CDs and posters will be available during this event. McCoy graduated from River View High School in Warsaw in 2005, and was a student of Keith Watson and Jim Bundy. In May 2009, McCoy graduated from Bethany College (Bethany, WV) with a Bachelors of Arts in Music. While at Bethany College, McCoy was a student of Pandel Collaros of Steubenville. Amanda performed at the Heritage Music BluesFest in Wheeling, WV in 2008 as both a solo acoustic artist and bassist for The Catch Blues Band. Amanda and The Catch Blues Band combined forces to perform a smokin’ hot set as the opening act for blues legend Johnny Winter. As a bassist, Amanda has performed and studied with many world-renowned musicians and bands. The list reads like a who’s who of the music industry and includes Kenny Aronoff, Victor Wooten, Pandel Collaros, ZASZ, Steve Bailey, Mike Pope, Howard Levy, Frank Gambale, Brandon Barnes, Zack Wiesinger, and Molly Pauken. Amanda has developed a solid, funky, and soulful style that keeps her audience at the edge of their seat, anxiously awaiting her next “soul-shaking” bassline. “It’s been a whirlwind of excitement and it’s made me take a step back and just say ‘Wow this is really happening!’” said McCoy, “Kenny Aronoff has played with Smashing Pumpkins and Bob Dylan and just to be able to say that

I’ve worked with him is really cool.” After auditioning in 2007, Amanda was among 60 bassists internationally selected to attend “Bass at the Beach,” a five-day conference for serious bass guitarists. Here, she met the famous rock drummer, Kenny Aronoff, who became a major influence and dear friend. “When I met Amanda at ‘Bass at the Beach,’ I was impressed with her upbeat and vivacious personality combined with a down-toearth sensibility, said Kenny Aronoff, “When I played with her, I told her that I loved her feel, enthusiasm, and exciting vibe when she played the bass. She rocks with an R&B feel.” Coming from a very musical family, Amanda started playing the guitar at age three and started playing bass shortly thereafter. Her parents played a major role in shaping her style and love of music. At the age of nine her father taught her a simple blues progression. From that moment forward, Amanda has never looked back. “Everyone I have been in contact with has influenced me,” said McCoy, “I’d have to say that music really influences me the most. When I can sit down and spend time with my music, that’s what really influences me. You know

when you listen to an artist or a song and you wonder what was the artist thinking when they wrote that. That’s what I’m hoping people will think of when they listen to Jade. I hope they’ll wonder, ‘Wow what was the artist thinking when they wrote this song’ and look forward to hearing the next song.” Amanda’s experience and training at the hands of skilled performer/pedagogues such as Victor Wooten and Kenny Aronoff have imbued her with a sense of professionalism that is lacking in most people her age. Her interest in the music of the African-American blues masters has made her expert in the performance of blues, R&B, and rock musics. Her formal training and experience have provided her with reading skills that allow her to cover the gamut from jazz to musical theater. Amanda has mastered a variety of musical genres and equipped herself with the tools appropriate to tackle any musical style. Her solid, funky, and soulful bass playing just adds another dimension to her prodigious guitar, piano, and singing abilities. When Amanda McCoy takes the stage, her musicianship and presence are both guaranteed to knock you off your feet. Currently, Amanda is touring and recording with “ZASZ Revolution,” a Nashville progressive-rock super-group. When Amanda isn’t playing her bass guitar, you can find her in Nashville’s hottest venues performing her songs for an eager audience. “In spite of her youth, [Amanda] proved to be a talented and strong individual whose soul runs deep blue.” said BJFM / Blues Triangle Update. In November, Amanda released her first EP entitled Jade. This special collection of songs is garnering accolades wherever it is heard. All songs were written and arranged by Amanda McCoy. Brandon Barnes of Pittsburgh, PA arranged and performed all the percussion on Jade. Along with Amanda, Pandel Collaros produced the EP and also recorded and mixed each of the songs. Pandel’s expertise and vision was essential and is evident in the final outcome of Jade. Amanda is also giving an “Unplugged” performance at the Coshocton City Park, located at the old Park Hotel parking lot on Friday, Jan. 29 at 4:30 p.m. as a promo event before the release party. “It’s been an exciting journey so far,” said McCoy, “and I’m excited to see where it goes.” CONTRIBUTED TO THE BEACON

A special school bowl event will be on Feb. 26 for school aged teams. This year’s theme, “A New Look… Same Great Vision,” makes reference to the agency’s name change in 2009, and the commitment to continuing to provide a range of positive mentoring services for children throughout the county. Teams wishing to register for Bowling For Kids 2010 are urged to call the Mentoring Center office at 623-8110. Bowling For Kids, the agency’s primary fundraiser, is designed as a celebration of the community’s support for the mentoring programs provided by the agency to children and families throughout the county. This year’s event will feature a special appearance by “Merf the Clown”, complete with balloon animals and air brushed tattooing. Throughout the three-day event, teams will bowl two games, enjoy a fresh pizza, listen to music provided by Big D’s Music on the Run, and get a chance at incentives and door prizes. Team captains will receive a special thank you

gift. “We always have a great time,” said Shelia Mayse, executive director, “It is wonderful to have the support of the community. This year, we are trying to fill every single lane, so that we can continue to provide the range of mentoring services we have developed for the community.” Funds are raised through the creation of five person teams who raise money on behalf of the agency. Each adult team member is asked to raise at least $50. Available bowling times are11 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3 p.m. Teams are encouraged to call 623-8110 to reserve a lane. Additional funds come from sponsorships from local businesses including corporate and lane sponsorships. This year’s presenting sponsor is Kraft Foods. Corporate sponsors are Coshocton Bowling Lanes, and AEPConesville. Lane sponsorships are available as well. At the $100 lane sponsorship level, donors are recognized by each having a banner that is placed above the lanes. According to Mayse, “We also encourage sponsors to provide us with information about their businesses to share with bowlers at the event.”

lion lives lost to abortion. On Friday, Jan. 22, New Beginnings Ministry of Warsaw hosted a rally for the life of the preborn at the Courtsquare. During the event, songs were sung, scripture was read and prayers were lifted up to God to turn the hearts of men and women away from abortion and to give life. On Thursday, members of the church planted 1,224 pink and blue flags on the Chestnut street side of the Courtsquare to symbolize the number of babies aborted during a typical eight hour workday. Pictured here are members of the church who gathered to pray before the ceremony began at 4:30 pm. In addition, members held signs along the Main Street side of the Courtsquare to bring awareness to passing motorists of the rally. Nichole Braxton, who attended the event with her nine children, said, “Children are a blessing from God,” she said, “I hope this event encourages other Christians to step up and do what we’re supposed to do and turn our hearts back to the hearts of children.”. photo contributed to the beacon

Kiwanis recently presented a check to the Sacred Heart School for $1,500 after they applied for the money last October. This money will be used toward preschool tuition. According to Sacred Heart, because of difficult economic times, the Preschool has suffered a major decline in their enrollment. By using this money, their goal is to provide all students with the same opportunity as those already enrolled, no matter what the parent’s financial situation may be and to maintain and increase enrollment. Currently, the Sacred Heart Preschool has three different tuition rates: two day classes are $90 a month, three day classes are $106 a month and five day classes are $140 a month. The money received by Kiwanis will be divided equally between these three tuition rates. In addition to receiving money from Kiwanis, Sacred Heart has also received $2,000 from the Coshocton Foundation. All money received will be used for the 2010-2011 school year.

Auctions & Real Estate

Columbus - Approximately 315 auctioneers and guests turned out for the Ohio Auctioneers Association’s Annual Convention, January 1618, 2010 in Columbus, OH at the Hilton Polaris Hotel, at which the organization bestowed its highest honor to one of its top auctioneers.
