team up to help Haiti When Baker’s IGA Foods decided to donate money to the victims of the Haiti disaster, they decided to involve the whole community. Baker’s IGA store director, Mark Cutshall, had already decided to donate $1,000 to Haiti relief through the Red Cross. However, he wanted to involve the whole community, so he enrolled the help of the kindergarten, first and second grade teachers at Union Elementary. Cutshall decided to further his idea into a community match project. Every customer at Baker’s IGA had the opportunity to donate $1 to Haiti relief in the check-out line. Once they agreed, they were given a paper hand to write their name on and then it was placed in their front window. Those hands were lovingly made by the students at Union Elementary. The students at Union receive Time Magazine for Kids and had already been aware

of the situation in Haiti. Every day, teachers would put the materials to make the hands on their activities station. This activity was easy for the kids to do and some hands were also made out of recycled paper, which the teachers talked about as well. “They can be aware of more than we think they can,” said Jackie Martin, teacher at Union Elementary, “One minute they can be playing Legos and then the next minute, it’s there again.” The students apparently learned a lot from this project, as most of them went to Baker’s IGA and purchased hands to help Haiti. By the end of the project, Baker’s IGA had over 500 hands taped to their window, and had raised a total of $565 from customers. Cutshall says they still plan to donate $1,000. “Our company commitment is to help where we can,” said Cutshall, “even if it’s not in our community.” This isn’t the first time Baker’s IGA and Union Elementary have paired up together. Martin said that the two joined last year for their Health Fair where students were allowed to tour Baker’s IGA facility. They have also helped with the student’s curriculum with a more hands-on experience. “It’s always nice to be able to work together,” said Cutshall, “Any time you can partner up with people who believe in a cause, you can achieve something great.”

Celebrating Red Cross Month

Letter to the editor by Jen Fannin Dear Editor, More than 125 years ago, a 60-yearold “Angel of the Battlefield” founded the American Red Cross. Her name was Clara Barton, and she redefined the Red Cross— initially an impartial organization for the relief of military wounded— by adding disaster relief to its services. Today, the American Red Cross has grown to offer an array of humanitarian services that help people prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies—including the collection and distribution of blood from volunteer donors. Every March, our country recognizes the valuable work of the American Red Cross, and the countless volunteers who make that work possible. During March Is Red Cross Month, I encourage you to join our local Red Cross chapter

in encouraging blood donations, as well as in celebrating all the vital Red Cross services like disaster relief, support to military members and their families, and health and safety education--including CPR, first-aid and babysitting training. At the American Red Cross, we’re a national organization with strong local ties. When you give through the American Red Cross, you can truly say you’re part of something very personal, yet very far-reaching. We’re an organization with a history, one that touches the lives of millions of people every year. We couldn’t do that without volunteers and the support of our community. Thank you for helping to save lives. Sincerely, Jen Fannin Executive Director American Red Cross of Ohio Hills

which was a cloth birthday card that people signed at the one hundred year birthday party. Haines added, “The background of the quilt actually came from a quilt that was made by Pearl’s mother. The back of the quilt is a tribute to Don and Lorella Billman, relatives of Pearl, without them, this would not have taken place”. A photo of Pearl is on the back showing her at eight or nine years old and at one hundred. Haines read from her prepared notes, “A quilt is like a person possessing strength and honor as well as frailties and needs. I’ve tried to put all of these things into this quilt”. That is why the quilt is named, “All in the Family”. When the quilt was presented to Pickrell, a big smile lit up her face. Trust us when we say that there is a lot more to this quilt than meets the eye.

The Coshocton County Beacon – We’re Just Local.

The majority of older adults prefer to remain in their own residence as they age. Although this is a positive decision, many times it can result in a solitary living situation. Companionship is important for seniors. Home healthcare aides can provide important companionship functions that can keep seniors from feeling isolated, lonely, and depressed. Personal care assistants can participate in a wide variety of friendship-building activities with seniors. These can be simple activities such as reading books, chatting about current events, watching movies, and engaging seniors in hobbies and activities that keep them alert and involved. A companion will share and enrich the senior’s life and embrace his or her interests and experiences. If you worry that your loved one might be in need of daily assistance – or simply lonely – then please call INTERIM HEALTHCARE OF COSHOCTON to schedule an appointment. We place experienced and compassionate caregivers with seniors who require a wide spectrum of care, from occasional help with errands to full-time live-in care. It helps your parents and it helps your peace of mind. Isn’t that worth it? Call 877-759-2106 today to set up an initial sit-down to discuss your needs, your parent’s needs, and what we can do to help you both. We’re available day or night, because we know that a crisis may strike at any time. Our address is 420 Downtowner Plaza. People you count on, care you can trust. P.S. Home healthcare aides help make it possible for seniors to continue living where they are most comfortable—in their homes.

of the school year. I went to Fresno Elementary. Pearl gave me five dresses and I was happy because I had a dress for every day of the week. At that time we wore the same size. I first met Pearl when my sister started dating her oldest son, Charles. When asked about the quilt, Haines remarked, “I have never enjoyed making a quilt more than I have this one and probably never will. In her comments to Pearl and those gathered at the church, Haines added, “It’s my way of recording memories and giving you something special for all of your years that you have given others and the kindness you have shown all of your life”. Haines said she went day by day making the quilt – part of the materials came from Pearl herself; including a piece of the blouse Pearl wore on her one hundredth birthday. The quilt is made of pieces of shirts, pants, nightgowns, dresses, blouses and more from special people in Pearl’s life. Of unique significance is the center-piece of the quilt,


100 year old Pearl Pickrell from Canal Lewisville was presented with a special quilt on Saturday, Mar. 6 at the Burt Avenue Wesleyan Church. Neighbor and friend Ada Haines, who was unable to attend the 100 year birthday party for Pearl due to a brief hospital stay, made the quilt. We all know that quilts are good for keeping the body warm but this quilt somehow seemed to also warm the heart. Haines said, “I have known Pearl since I was 14 years old. She is just so very special to me. My family was poor and when I was fourteen years old – we got two outfits of clothing each year for school. We received these at the beginning

Planting your garden classified hotline 622-4ADS

It’s exciting to watch plants grow from a tiny seed. If you plant seeds, follow the package directions. Directions will vary for each kind of seed you plant. Be careful! The most common planting mistake is planting too deep. This results in poor germination. Water gently, keeping seeds moist until they germinate. Follow specific watering instructions for each kind of seed you plant. Plant seedlings as deep as they were in their holder. You can see the soil level on the stem. Keep their roots vertical by making sure your hole is deep enough. If your soil is dry, fill the hole half full of water before you place the seedling in it. Firmly pack soil around it. Gently water over the top of planted seedlings. Keep them moist for a week or so, depending on your local weather conditions.

2010 Coshocton County Home Show to be at Career Center Over forty exhibitors will set up in the cafeteria and commons area of the Coshocton County Career Center on Saturday and Sunday, March 13 and 14, for the 2010 Coshocton Home Show. Sponsored by Habitat for Humanity, this will be the first time the show has been at the Career Center. Previously at the Lake Park Pavilion, the new location was selected for its accessibility and versatility. “We’ve been able to add demonstrations of interest for everyone,” said Habitat for Humanity Vice-President Jane Mautz. “Also, moving to the Career Center puts us closer to the hub of activity around Wal-Mart.”

This year’s Home Show draws exhibitors from around the area, not just from Coshocton. They feature landscaping, stone work, fencing, and more for outside the home. Inside the home, exhibitors will display improvements for energyefficiency and environmental enhancement. There will also be exhibitors showcasing interior design items for the home. “The 2010 Home show is bigger than ever,” said Mautz, “Now, we want to invite the people of Coshocton to come to the Career Center on Saturday and Sunday so we can make it better than ever, too.”


A $300 Meat and Grill Package and two Adirondack chairs are being raffled off by Habitat for Humanity. The drawing will be at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, March 14, at the 2010 Home Show. The Meat and Grill Package includes $300 worth of meat from the Village Market in West Lafayette and a grill. The meat can be picked up at the Village Market in smaller bundles if the winner wishes.

The Adirondack chairs were constructed by the adult students of the Mid East Career and Technology Center’s Building Construction and Remodeling program. Raffle tickets are available for $1 each; ten for $5; or twenty-five for $10. They may be purchased from any Habitat for Humanity Board Member or at the 2010 Home Show.

Habitat’s Restore will have a truck at the Career Center to collect any building supplies that you would like to donate. If you have any leftover materials from previous home improvement projects, consider donating them to the Restore. Household appliances that work can be put to use again. Cabinets and doors can find new life somewhere else. All of this material can be kept out of landfills if we take the time to recycle it. Look around your house and garage. Find your unwanted items and bring them to the 2010 Home Show March 13 and 14, where you can donate them for recycling.

Home Show Program 3

Spring cleaning includes getting rid of clutter in the house and in the garage. But, it’s important to do it responsibly. Everything that can be recycled should be in order to keep unnecessary items out of landfills. During the 2010 Home Show you will have an opportunity to recycle your metal materials and benefit Habitat for Humanity at the same time. Litzy’s Recycling will place a receptacle in the parking lot during the Home Show to collect scrap iron, aluminum, large and small appliances (including refrigerators, ranges, etc), and other metal products that you need to discard.

Ron Meyer is originally from Cleveland. His parents bought 40 acres in White Eyes Township in 1973. It was a farm that had been strip mined so over the years there have been thousands of pine trees planted in the stripped area. They moved to the farm in 1977 and were there until 1986 when they moved to Western Pennsylvania. In 2003 they returned and started Strawberry Hill Farms. Now, in their 8th season of organic growing, strawberries, salad greens, blueberries, peas, Heirloom tomatoes and many other types of vegetables grow in their garden. In 2006 they also started CSA (community supported agriculture) in which people pay into and then get weekly garden produce. They also show their produce at the Coshocton Farmers Market, which is annually May through October.

Leroy Phillips lives on the family farm of 120 acres near Uhrichsville. What started out as a hobby in 1990 now has prospered into a business known as Willowbrook Water Gardens. Today the family has two large greenhouses. One is 30x100, which houses all aquatic plants, and the other is 16x40, which contains all the gold fish and Koi. No matter what the size, Leroy will help create a dream garden. It may feature a sculptured art piece or a pond of goldfish, but either way it will add a great touch to any outdoor living. Maintenance and cleaning of these gardens during the year, then shutting them down for the winter is also a large part of his business. Leroy is not just limited to small garden ponds or water features. He also cleans and treats large farm ponds. Even though the one-time hobby has now turned into a business, Leroy is also employed as a custodian with the Dover City Schools. He will be at the Home Show to explain how to start one of these water gardens with or without the fish.

from Coshocton, started in 1986 for a painting business owned by Charles Wright. From there, he went out on his own and became interested in faux painting. He practiced many hours on his own developing the art. He then had an opportunity to attend a 3-day workshop in Akron given by a famous faux painter who was known to have done work for many of Hollywood’s finest. Inspired by the workshop and continually reading of ways to develop the technique of faux, Tim now has his work displayed inside several homes in the Coshocton area. He is a social worker with painting as a side, but will demonstrate the art of faux painting at the Home Show.

“Gone With the Wind” in deep trouble. The director has been fired, the script is not performable, filming has been suspended, and the cast and crew are being paid but not working. Early on a Monday morning in February 1939, Mr. Selznick offers screenwriter Ben Hecht, who has not even read the novel, a considerable amount of money to rewrite the screenplay. Mr. Selznick then engages director Victor Fleming of “Wizard of Oz” fame to help. Then, with only bananas and peanuts for nourishment, the everfamous “Gone with the Wind” is written by the end of the week, but it has taken its toll on the 3 men and even on Mr. Selznick’s secretary! The cast includes Matthew Hardesty, Jeff Wherley, Shane Pyle and Caroline Heading. Please join us for an evening of fine food and fun!

Charles Downer started working for Forrest Edwards at his nursery in 1956. One year later, Forrest was ready to retire. So Charles and his parents bought the greenhouse and nursery. For the next 31 years, he operated what was known as Downer’s Greenhouse just east of West Lafayette. In 1988 Charles and his wife and sons moved to the present location, once known as the Thelma Harding Mansion but today is called the Shadybend Manor House. During the next 8 years, as he developed the landscaping around the mansion, he only sold plants at festivals or shows until his greenhouse burnt down. Now he only grows plants for himself. He may call himself retired, but he still works sun up to sun down in the spring and summer planting the gardens that evolve into a beautiful floral fashion show from mid summer until the first frost. In early fall, he opens up the gardens to walking tours mainly focusing on coleus. At the Home Show, he will demonstrate easy time-saving tips for planting an annual garden. Connie Miller comes from a background of farmers in rural southern Ohio. There were farmers on her maternal side and tomato and lettuce growers on her dad’s side, so working with the soil is just the natural thing to do. She attended Ohio State starting in Agronomy but later changed and received a degree in Landscape Horticulture. Following graduation, Connie moved to Indiana and worked at a golf course for four years before moving to Coshocton in 1978. She then worked at Hickory Flats for one year and from there went to Kobel’s Garden Center. She left there in 1991 and returned to school. In 1996 she received a degree in elementary education and taught for the next five years. During the summers, she worked for the Roscoe Village landscaping department. It was in the year 2000 a full time position became available and teaching took a back seat. Her love for the plants and soil are seen daily by the many visitors in Roscoe Village. Connie will talk about perennials plants seen in the village and what it takes to grow them.

What to know before beginning spring lawn and garden care try a combination of potting soil and a weed prevention product. * Start small and sturdy Now it’s time to make the exciting first pilgrimage of the season to the garden center. Local weather forecasts can offer up some insight here since around 60 degrees is when seeds, grass and vegetable, start to germinate. Planted too early seeds have to wait for the soil to warm up and many annuals may still be at risk of frost damage. Look for hardier plants that will withstand cooler temperatures to start with. Pansies are a great way to add an instant burst of color to your planters and beds early in the season. Spring bulbs such as daffodils, tulips, and hyacinth can even be started indoors in containers and then moved outside for a pop of color. When approaching your vegetable gardening, look to quick-growing, early-season favorites like spinach, lettuces and peas. The thermometer reaching 60 degrees is a great indicator that it is time to get out and enjoy the great outdoors once again. If you approach the season by giving your lawn and garden the foundations needed at this time of year, you’ll have a beautiful retreat to enjoy throughout spring and into summer.

Most importantly, take your lawn mower in for a good blade sharpening to ensure the best results on your lawn this season. * Assess what plants survived the winter Next head for the outdoors to evaluate what is still there. Clean out your beds, give the lawn a good raking, and look over your perennials and shrubs. If you’ve just come through a tough winter, check for signs of distress. Do you have plants that have received too much moisture, sun-light, or exposure to the elements? Are plants over-crowded or have you lost some all together? Take notes on what plants may need to be moved around, replaced or purchased and what questions to ask the experts at the garden center. * Amend your soil Plants need the proper foundation of soil to flourish. When the ground is ready to be worked, start tilling and be sure to add amendments nutrients. Regardless of soil type (sand, clay or something in between) amendments boost the health of your soil. Potting soil always improves your existing earth and builds strong roots and gives your garden a jump start. Don’t overlook your pots or other containers either. Start with fresh potting soil each growing season. Once your plants are in the ground or containers, all will need to be fed periodically for maximum results so stock up on good all-purpose plant food. To get ahead of weeds and feed plants

Like an alarm clock for our senses and our gardens, the thermometer swelling to 60 degrees awakens us in the spring. We all get the irresistible urge to get outside, birds are chirping, animals come out from hibernation and plants start unfurling their leaves and flowers to color our world. ‘The 60 degree factor’ signals us that the end of large fluctuations between day and night temperatures is approaching. This allows the soil to warm up, which is necessary for seeds to germinate and young plants to take root, grow healthy and start the season out right. It also gets us interested in outside activities again - and inevitably we begin gardening. As strong as the urge is to get outside and get started, it’s best to take a measured approach for the best growing experience and a beautiful lawn and garden this season. Start by making a list of projects and working through each, one by one. * Check your tools Before hitting the outdoors, make a stop in your garage or shed. Go through all of the tools you’ll need in the lawn and garden. Is everything in working order and ready to be used again? Are the tines on your rake all there and sturdy? Check your hand tools to make sure none are corroded or coming loose from the handles. Sharpen your shovels, pruning shears and edgers. See if you have the gas and oil needed for power tools.

disorders. Farmers have even said that daylight savings time has affected the sleeping and eating habits of their animals. Daylight savings time is also a good reminder to change the batteries in your smoke alarm. For the safety of the household, smoke detector batteries should be changed at least twice a year to ensure there are always good batteries in the smoke detector. Also, if the smoke detector starts chirping or beeping, it’s time for a battery change. “You need to change the batteries in your smoke detector when you change the clocks,” said Jeff Corder, fire prevention office at the Coshocton City Fire Department, “You also need to take your vacuum hose and vacuum out the dust bunnies to help prevent false alarms. When you’re done with that, you need to press the test button to make sure it works. You should also press the test button once a month to make sure it works. Smoke detectors should also be replaced every 10 years. That’s about the life of a smoke detector.” Always have a few extra batteries on hand just in case for an emergency replacement. If the smoke detector does go off, evacuate the house immediately and call 911 from a neighbor’s home. Don’t take time to gather possessions or even pets. It could mean the difference between life or death. This Saturday, don’t forget to change the clock and the batteries in the household smoke detector.


It’s that time of year again. Some people dread it while others love it! It’s Daylight Savings Time: when the United States gains an extra hour of sunlight in the evenings. Some love daylight savings time because it means we gain an extra hour of sunlight in the evenings and that spring is on its way. Others think it’s a waste of time and disturbs their sleeping habits. Daylight savings time was first conceived by Benjamin Franklin in 1784, but it was more than a century later when London builder William Willet wrote a pamphlet called “Waste of Daylight” in 1907 that got the ball rolling. He originally proposed advancing the clocks for 20 minutes on each of the four Sundays in April and retarding them 20 minutes by the same amount in the fall. The first daylight saving time law was passed on March 19, 1918. It established standard time zones and set summer day light savings time to begin on March 31, 1918. The United States begins its daylight savings time at 2 a.m. local time on the second Sunday in March and reverts back to standard time at 2 a.m. on the first Sunday in November. It is not observed in Arizona and Hawaii. But why 2 a.m.? The time was originally chosen to minimize disruption. There are fewer trains running at that time, bars and restaurants are not affected, it doesn’t change the day into yesterday in the fall, which can be very confusing, and it doesn’t interfere with people going to church. Even though daylight savings time allows us to enjoy some extra sunlight, some people are against it. Many people complain about the sleep disturbances, especially those who have sleeping

The guest speaker was Claudio Salvador who hails from Italy and has lived in the US for thirty years. A wine maker by trade, Salvador owns Firelands Winery in northern Ohio. Using personal contacts and family friends, Salvador imports unique wines from Italy, which is known for their indigenous varieties of wine.

by Mark fortune had three of her wines among the seven samples. There are more people aged over 90 in Sardinia than anywhere in the world. Much of the credit for this is given to the diet and red wine, which contain large amount of antioxidants. Salvador told the enthusiastic audience, “Wines from Italy need food – they do not have as much fruit and are earthier in tone. Wine making in Italy is old school. They like to follow tradition”. Salvador added, “The soil composition adds minerals to the wine, thus making each wine and each winery different and unique in what they offer”. A total of seven wines were sampled throughout the evening, with a crowd favorite seeming to be a rose sparkling wine called, “Prosecco”. It is the number one sparkling wine sold in the US right now. Mr. John Laaper, who interestingly enough was sitting at a table with people that spoke a lot of German, said that, “My favorite is the Prosecco. It’s very light and effervescent. It puts you in a good mood. It’s the best aphrodisiac you can think of!” In addition to a large variety of imported wines, Uncorked features Ohio wines and Coshocton County wines from Raven’s Glenn, Shawnee Springs, Rainbow Hills and Heritage Vineyards.

The Coshocton Jaycees’ “Prop Nuts” model airplane club’s Perpetual Aviation trophy was awarded to Thomas Bryan at their previous Tuesday night meeting. Last year’s winner, Don Haney Jr. proudly presented the trophy to Bryan. The winner receives two trophies. The larger trophy is passed from winner to winner each year while every winner can keep their smaller trophy forever. The award is given to a member of the club who has attended meetings regularly, participation in committee functions and contests, and sportsmanship. The club met the second Tuesday of every month and also on Sundays to fly their model airplanes at the site across from the Parkway Hotel.


Don Daliere started out to work on a Monday morning to his construction site at Roscoe. On the way, he noticed a strange animal lying in the middle of the road. It was not quite a cat, not quite a bear. He immediately stopped the vehicle and called Richard Kinneer, game protector. Kinneer identified the deceased animal as a kinkajou, commonly known as a honeybear, which are native to South and Central America and Mexico. Kinneer said it could have been someone’s escaped pet, but no one knows how an animal native to foreign countries found its way to the streets of Roscoe.

Coshocton basketball senior, Carl Call was honored in Columbus and was voted first team honors in Class A for the all-Ohio high school basketball first team. Another senior from Chillicothe, Ray Griesheimer, was also honored. Call was an outstanding player in his time. He first caught the public’s eye in 1947 at the state tournament. That year, he collected 293 points for his team. He also played football for Coshocton. Frank Bartholow and six other Coshocton County basketball players were given honorable mention.

Don Carnes was named bowling champion of the Special Olympics Bowling Tournament at the Coshocton Recreation Center, even though he had a cast on his left wrist from a previous injury. But that misfortune didn’t seem to slow him down any as he scored 104 points, bowling his way to first place. Along with Coshocton, six other counties also participated in the Bowling Tournament, and Coshocton Hopewell took second place in the overall team competition. Stevie Scott and Margaret Hall, received second and third place respectively on the Coshocton team.

This is the 5th year that Union Elementary has participated in the Pennies for Patients Campaign. This benefits the Central Ohio Leukemia & Lymphnoma Society. Their mission is to cure Leukemia, lymphnoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. At Christmas break each of the students received a pennies box to collect spare change. Our campaign began Feb. 1 and was to run till Feb. 12. They then brought their boxes back to school and placed the change into their classroom box. The final total has not been calculated yet. As a special treat this year we sold ice cream treats at lunch to add to the total. Students are still bringing in change. The top fundraising class is treated to a pizza party and the second place class is treated to an ice cream sundae. The students learn to help others. Every penny counts! You would be surprised how fast they add up, and the silver coins help too. If you would like to donate your spare change to help a good cause, contact the Union School office at 237-2351 for more information.
