Conference title usually goes through Dover and this year was no exception. The Coshocton Redskins faced off against the Tornadoes at the Wigwam on Wednesday evening, Feb. 17 with all the marbles hanging in the balance. The Redskins had lost in overtime at Dover earlier in the season so the capacity crowd was fired up for some good competitive basketball. WTNS Sports Director Tom Thompson summed up the matchup this way, “Dover is a great program. If you want to win the ECOL – you have to go through Dover. Year in and year out Dover is a top shelf program – so you can measure yourself against them and it’s great when you can decide the league championship on your own floor. That’s all you can ask for”! Following a junior varsity win that started the evening strong for the Redskins, a special presentation was held before the varsity game. A football playoff final four banner was presented to the fans and the school that will surely hang with pride at the school. Following a one day postponement due to the snow, both teams brought their “A” game to the court. “Downtown” David Brown started the crowd buzzing with two three pointers within one minute. At halftime the ‘Skins led 21-19. With 2:40 remaining in the third period, the Redskins extended their lead to 7 points with

By Mark forTune Brown dropping a deep three. That was followed by a Dom McCluskey three point shot at the end of the third quarter with the Redskins now leading by ten, 37-27. Although Dover rallied in the fourth and got within four points, the Redskins never faltered and McCluskey made two crucial free throws with forty seconds to go. Coshocton ended up winning by a final score of 50-45, claiming sole possession of first place in the ECOL. The Redskins won the league championship with a record 16 victories by defeating River View and Meadowbrook over the weekend. This ended a grueling stretch of games for the Redskins in which at one point they played three consecutive games on three consecutive nights – winning all three games. Dr. David Hire, Coshocton City Schools superintendent, said, “This victory brings confirmation that this team has arrived at the level of play they are capable of – the confidence they have in themselves, and for others to see them arrive at this level of play is just terrific”. Jim Nelson, the “man behind the microphone” for the team, commented after the game, “You always want to have a win – this puts the ‘Skins ahead of Dover with two games to go in the season. The stands were full – and a lot of kids showed up – the whole football team was here. It shows the “oneness” of the student body – there were more than just parents here tonight. The important thing is that they did their best – they played totally unselfish”.

respectively. All materials donated are tax deductible. Habitat is also having their Home Show at the Career Center on March 13 and 14. There will be vendors from around the county and visitors can stop by and visit their booths. There will also be seminars on Saturday and Sunday. Along with the seminars, there will also be a shredder truck on Saturday. The community is encouraged to bring their unwanted paper items to be shredded and recycled. There will also be a dumpster for recycling metal. The cost is a donation. There will also be a box truck for monetary donations. Money raised will help toward building homes. “These homes are not given away,” said Hardesty. “These people work beside the volunteers and when the work is done, they pay a mortgage back to Habitat. And that money goes to build further homes. It’s a hand up, not a hand out.” On Sunday, there will be an EMS vehicle for the public to view at the Home Show. Refreshments will also be served. The public can also make a monetary donation through Re Store. To donate, or for more information, contact the Re Store office at 623-2764 or Ernie Galajda at 622-7432.


Spring is just around the corner and with that season of renewal comes the dreaded task of spring cleaning. But instead of throwing out that old piece of furniture that’s never used anymore, consider donating it to the Coshocton County Re Store Program. Habitat for Humanity is joining the over 600 Re Store programs nationwide and has been operating a local Re Store program here in Coshocton County for the last six months. They are currently accepting donations such as reusable furniture and large household items. After receiving these donations, Restore will resell the items to the general public for less. There’s only one problem. Habitat has no permenant building to store their donated items. As of today, the items are being stored by the Coshocton Lumber Company. They have graciously allowed the Habitat For Humanity to use this area as a starter building. Sue Hardesty, past president of Habitat, says she hopes they will soon outgrow the building with an overflow of donations. “Since the building materials are donated, they get a second chance at life and are not doing to the landfill,” said Ernie Galajda, president of Habitat for Humanity. The main hold-up for this situation is lack of funds. Just recently, the Rotary and Buehler’s donated a kind sum to Habitat: $5,000 and $1,000

Mark’s Musings

It was a dark, cold and windy night. I have always wanted to start this column in that fashion! The opportunity finally presented itself last week. While helping a friend I learned several things of general interest to practically no one but those involved. First, llamas are really not that intelligent. Second, four wheel drive SUV’s are not meant to “herd” llamas nor “drive” them to any sort of building, barn or habitat, especially in two foot snowdrifts. Thirdly, there will always be a need for those big green machines and the friendly sort of guys and gals that own them and are willing to use them to help a neighbor in need. While there is truly a “need to know” basis to this story – the names must remain innocent - but it will forever go down in the annals of State Route 541 West history as, “The great llama chase of 2010”, also known as, “The three phased operation”. The rest of you will just have to wonder about this one! We Americans are showing the world that we are still the country to chase when it comes to medals at the winter Olympics in Vancouver. I was a bit dismayed yesterday when I found out (after one full week of the games) that I have been watching a tape delay. WHAT? You better shift the start times of these games to better suit us Americans, dangit. And I say if you win the most medals YOU get to determine the next site location and the start times. And you also get to name your own event. For example, let’s say that the USA retains the medal count – we can now add “The Snowman Building Contest”, or “The Hardest Snow Ball Contest”. This is, after all, the Winter Olympics. Good

Well, there were actually a few but the point is that everyone had a great time for a great cause at the annual Bowl for Kids Sake fund raising event which was held for adult teams at the Coshocton Bowling Lanes on Friday and Saturday, Feb. 19 and 20. Students will be bowling this coming weekend and at later dates to be announced due to the calamity days at area schools. Bowl for Kids Sake is the major fund-raising event for The Mentoring Center of Coshocton County, formerly Big Brothers / Big Sisters. Executive Director Sheila Mayse, said, “We strive to raise 50% of our annual budget with Bowl for Kids Sake. This weekend was about the adults and we have teams bowling at 11 am, 1 pm and 3 pm. Our presenting sponsor was Kraft Foods and AEP Conesville has joined us as a new corporate sponsor. Coshocton Bowling Lanes is also a corporate sponsor. About 450 people have participated this weekend. This bowling event keeps the doors open and allows us to provide the services for area children at The Mentoring Center of Coshocton County”. Rick Merrell, director of operations at Annin & Company, remarked, “We enjoy this – it’s a good cause – for the kids. We like doing things for kids and we like to give a little bit back to help The Mentoring Center. We have ten or more teams participating today. I’m proud that they stepped up for this and for many other things to help support the community. Everything we do at the plant to raise money is given back and that money is all from the employees at Annin”. Tracy Richmond, who was bowling with husband Dave, “little sister” Savannah Moser from The Mentoring Center program, and stepsisters of Savannah, DeAnna and Regina Heck, said, “We’ve been matched for a little over a year. I just think kids need adults that are interested in what they want to do. I get a lot out of it too – it’s really become a whole family thing. I get so much enjoyment out of doing this. Savannah is always so appreciative and grateful of everything we do and that is rewarding right there”. The Baker’s IGA team consisted of Carrie Phillips, Christine Roberts, Melissa Stephan and Tiffany Seibert. Christine commented, “It’s fun and we enjoy helping out the community. We raised $785 by asking employees at the store and also our customers to donate to the cause. We also had a “dress down” day at the store where employees could “dress down” for a donation to our team”. Melissa Stephan, who bowls in a league for the “Good Time Gals”, added, “This is just a great way to be involved. This is the most money we’ve ever raised – we had a lot of nice people who were generous and donated to us”.

The 81 member Chorale was in concert at the Roscoe United Methodist Church on Saturday evening, Feb. 20 and also provided music at the Sunday morning services. Widder had this to say about his college experience thus far, “This is my third time home since last September, including Christmas. It’s nice to see family and friends again for sure. Being involved in the Chorale and the other music groups keeps me on my toes. There is just such a community amongst the groups, especially the quartet”. Regarding collegiate life, Widder added, “College, academically speaking, is more challenging than I thought. Balancing singing and academics is something I am working on and improving.

Home healthcare aides assist seniors who live in their own homes. They are trained to provide routine personal care services and can also perform basic housekeeping tasks. Home healthcare aides are a great help to seniors who require more extensive care than family and friends can provide. They can help the senior get in and out of bed, bathe, dress, and groom. They also provide valuable companionship. Under the direction of nursing or medical staff, home health aides may assist with medical equipment and change nonsterile dressings. Depending upon the needs of the senior at home, a home healthcare service can help you choose the appropriate home healthcare aide to assist your loved one.

Although almost 200 students from Coshocton High School entered science fair projects to be presented to the judges, only one lucky student received a superior rating. Jim Dickerson, a freshman, received the only superior rating out of twenty-five entered exhibits with his project, “Operation of the Bonded Silicone Rubber Membrane”. His project showed a living, breathing mouse who lived underwater and obtained oxygen to live through the water itself. The students had been working on their projects since the last October. Each project included a research paper and a demonstration based on the student’s independent study, which was under the supervision of their science teacher. Criteria for judging included knowledge achieved, effective use of the scientific method, clarity of expression and creativity.

Coshocton County was fired up for two consecutive nights of exciting Coshocton boys basketball on the home court. Coshocton Redskins and the Cambridge Bobcats were scheduled to tangle on the Coshocton High School court on Friday, Feb. 24. The mighty Redskins hoped to attain second place in the final Central Ohio League standings, but knew they would have to play hard against the sizzling Bobcats to achieve victory. The next evening, the Warsaw Pirates and the Keene Cardinals were scheduled to face off on the court. This game would ultimately determine which lucky team would take on the unstopable, unbeatable, Conesville Vikings and go on to the Class B sectional tournament at Zanesville.

Block Grant, $100,000 through Ohio Public Works Commission and over $3.3 million dollars in principal forgiveness and loan money through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funding. The ARRA funding program, better known as the “federal stimulus package,” supplied the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (OEPA) over $275 million dollars in principal forgiveness and loan money to distribute to shovel-ready projects throughout the state of Ohio. Though over 1,650 projects were submitted through the website, only 332 projects made it to the OEPA’s final approval list. The Coshocton County Commissioners, along with GGC Engineers and T.J. Justice of the Coshocton Port Authority, worked tirelessly to submit funding applications to make it to the final ARRA funding list, scoring at number 39 on the priority list. The project will not only serve 175 residents of the un-incorporated Fresno area of Coshocton County, but it will also enable the Pearl Valley Cheese factory to maintain their operation without past environmental concerns that restricted and limited their operation. The project will also impact the area through creating better wastewater services, and will hopefully serve as a catalyst for the area to promote development and job growth for the region. A large part of this is due to the pro-active efforts of the Village of West Lafayette in agreeing to allow their wastewater plant to become a treatment facility for the region. With West Lafayette agreeing to allow their plant to become a regional facility a whole new source of revenue will be available to finance their potential future Ohio EPA mandated improvements and provide for future industrial growth.

She had talked about a snowman so I did it to surprise her. She rounded the corner and just started laughing. The neighbors offered me some extra snow if I needed it but that wasn’t necessary. The head was kind of difficult to get up there due to the weight. The eyes and mouth are dirty snow from under a car and the arms are wood packed with snow.” The snowman’s name is Sweetpea.
