We have a lot of donations and people are more than happy to be part of the event. We also have handouts and brochures with tips and information on the services that are available to families”. Leslie Dulgar, who is a prevention worker at Coshocton Job & Family Services, added, “The feedback is wonderful. I think people look forward to it. We send flyers to all the schools and they send them home with the kids. The focus is just to promote quality family time, something positive and something fun for the kids”.

Scouting celebrates 100 years of Eagle Scouts

By Mark fortune

3 Eagle Scout 100 Years

photo by Mark fortune

that are being brought back for the 100th year of scouting. Following a video on the Muskingum Valley Scout Reservation, (MVSR) the scouting camp that annually hosts over 1,000 scouts each summer, Jim Gill talked about the progression and changes throughout the years of the Eagle Scout rank. Dr. Alfred Magness was recognized during the ceremony as being the oldest Eagle Scout in attendance and provided with a commemorative 100 year Eagle Scout knife. Dr. Magness earned his Eagle in 1937 as a member of Troop 5, (now Troop 405) which met at The Presbyterian Church. Each Eagle Scout told those in attendance the year, the troop and the city in which they earned their Eagle rank. Scouts were in attendance from as far away as Fremont, Ohio and several Eagles from Troop 402, (the original number of the troop was Troop 2), as well as Troop 403 and Troop 405. Local businessman Gary Baker, owner of Baker’s IGA, who earned his Eagle in Freeport, Ohio, commented, “Earning my Eagle Scout allowed me to realize at an early age that you can accomplish so much – and it has been a pillar of what I’ve become. I use the scout laws and oath as a guide each day. I will never forget the relationships of the scout leaders and the example they set of being selfless and the great sacrifices they made. Instead of playing golf they spent time with us on the weekend. I did not realize the significance of that until I was older.”

Andrew Frank, who earned his Eagle Scout rank last year, spoke about the service project that allowed him to earn his honor. Frank devoted 268 hours to renovate the “Our Lady of Lourdes” Catholic Cemetery, with new benches, brand new two rail vinyl fencing and making repairs on the outhouse. Eagle Scout and scout executive for the Muskingum Valley Council Ed Mulholland, said, “I passionately believe in the tremendous positive impact that scouting has on the youth in our communities. Scouting is alive and well, especially here in the Muskingum Valley. We have over 3,000 registered youth in the seven counties that we cover. There are hundreds and hundreds of adult volunteers that give of their time on a daily basis. I look at a man like Jim Gill and need I say more. What a legacy! The best part of my job is that I get to work with great people. We’ve always been about character, the outdoors, achievement, leadership and service. Those are really the five foundational principles that scouting is built around and that is still what we’re about. Scouting is really about making this country better. We make our country better. That’s really what it’s all about.” The evening concluded with cake, punch and the opportunity to look at old newspaper clippings and memorabilia of scouting over the years. Kevin Lee concluded by saying, “Let’s hope that scouting continues to grow and prosper in the next one hundred years.”

The Muskingum Valley Council of the Boy Scouts are helping celebrate 100 years of scouting with Eagle Scout recognition ceremonies being held in Cambridge, Zanesville, Coshocton and Mount Vernon. The ceremony for Coshocton was held at the Presbyterian Church in Coshocton on Thursday, Apr. 15. Long time local scout leader, Jim Gill, said, “The life skills, the leadership skills that scouting teaches our young people, these things they will take with them for the rest of their life. Tonight we will have people here that are engineers, doctors and business leaders. We are an outdoor program and that is what keeps them coming back. The volunteers drive the program. This takes a lot of people and we are very fortunate here in our area to have the great people that we do.” Eagle Scout Kevin Lee, who is actively involved in scouting in the Coshocton area, said, “We are certainly thrilled that you are here. This is one hundred years of scouting and that is a good reason to gather here tonight.” Jeff Wickerham, commented, “I feel privileged to work with scouting. I am a local employee of the Boy Scouts and am lucky enough to work with many of the volunteers here in Coshocton. There are currently 399 youth age scouts here in Coshocton County and with adult volunteers we have 572 total. Scouting has come a long way as you can now download the scout handbook on your iPhone.” Wickerham talked about several new merit badges being offered in scouting this year, including some merit badges

You have the power to save a life! LETTER TO THE EDITOR 18 men, women and children die every day because a life-saving organ transplant did not come in time. An Ohioan dies every other day while waiting. These aren’t just statistics; these are mothers, daughters, husbands, grandfathers, neighbors and friends. These tragic losses could be prevented if more people register as organ and tissue donors. More than 90 percent of Ohioans think donation is a good thing, but only 52 percent have taken action to register. We are working to bridge that gap and save lives by clarifying myths surrounding donation. For instance, nearly 30 percent of Ohioans polled in a recent survey believe that doctors are more interested in recovering organs from a potential donor than saving that person’s life. This is the most common myth we hear and it is completely untrue. A doctor’s main priority is to save the life in front of them and emergency personnel are not involved in the donation process, a separate medical team handles that. Your status as a donor


is not considered until everything has been done to save your life and death has been declared. Many people polled also believed that one cannot have an open casket funeral after donation, which is untrue or that donation might be against their religion, when, in fact, all major religions support donation. Because these myths remain, lives are lost every day. April is Donate Life Month, a time to reflect on the importance of organ and tissue donation. I urge you to learn the facts about donation for 106,000 Americans, including 3,000 Ohioans, who are waiting for a second chance at life through transplantation. The solution is in our hands if we are willing to take action. You have the power to save lives, register TODAY in the Ohio Donor Registry To register or learn more, visit or call 800525-5667.

Recycling and Litter Prevention Council to Cleanin’ up the streets By Beth dulaney By Beth dulaney Coshocton County is a beautiful place to live and have annual Tire Collection Day This Saturday is the day to help out the said Wherley. community. Along with City Clean-Up Day, the Recycling and Litter Prevention Council in Nellie Village will be having their annual Tire Collection Day. The public can bring their used tires to the Coshocton County Fairgrounds from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. to be recycled. The recycled tires will be taken to Central Ohio Contractor in Grove City where they will be grinded and used for tracks, land fill covers, or various energy sources. According to Jeff Wherley, head of the Coshocton County Recycling and Litter Prevention Program, tires are difficult to recycle because most waste plants won’t handle them and they are very expensive to recycle. “This is a great opportunity for people to get rid of their old tires at a slightly cheaper price,”

The cost to recycle old tires on Tire Collection Day will be $2 for passenger tires, $25 for rear tractor tires, and $15 for anything in between sizes. There is a health risk to letting old, unused tires sit around the yard. Unused tires often attract rodents and if water gets inside, they suddenly become the biggest mosquito attracter there is. Several types of mosquitoes can carry deadly diseases such as encephalitis and dengue fever. Wherley wanted to express his thanks to REACT in Coshocton County who provides free laborers and helps to direct traffic every year. “There’s no way I could do this without their help,” said Wherley. A lot of people have asked Wherley about doing Tire Collection Day more than once a year, but with cost and time, this service can only be provided once a year. So get your old tires in at the County Fairgrounds this Saturday because there won’t be another chance until next spring.

visit. Help keep it that way and volunteer to help with City Clean-Up on April 24. All volunteers are to meet at 8:30 a.m. at the courthouse to sign in. The clean-up will be from 9 a.m. – Noon. This is a great opportunity for families and groups to come out and help beautify the city. Groups can call ahead in advance to register by contacting the United Way at 622-4567. Make sure to bring working gloves. Rakes, trash bags, and any other item needed for the day will be provided. Donuts and water bottles will be provided at 8:30 a.m. at the courthouse. The first 100 people to arrive will receive a free “Green Starts Here” t-shirt. “Coshocton is a great community that pulls together when there is need,” said Suzanne Clark, Executive Director of United Way, “Taking pride in our community and the way it looks is a way we can pull together.” There are other reasons than just community pride as to why we should keep Coshocton County looking its best. “As far as businesses are concerned, the better we look, the more likely businesses are to come here and people are to stay here,” said Carol Remington, Executive Director of the Chamber of Commerce. The City Clean-Up Day has been successful in the past, and hopefully will continue to be a success each year. The labor will not be too difficult. Groups will break up into teams and rake leaves, pick up litter, and clean along the bridge and railroad tracks. “First appearances to both businesses and prospective businesses is critical,” said Mayor Steve Mercer, “We only have one opportunity to make a good first impression. Getting people to take an interest and pride in their community is something that doesn’t cost much money. I’m hoping everyone will participate in some way, whether it be a community project like city clean up day or around their own homes and neighborhoods.”

At the River is the theme of the Coshocton Community Choir’s Spring Concert on Sunday, April 25 at 3 p.m. Over 200 musicians from throughout central Ohio will be performing at Coshocton High School’s McKinley Auditorium. Musical selections during the 90-minute concert span the centuries as three choirs, the Coshocton Community Adult Choir, the Children’s Choir and the Youth Chorale, perform a mix of sacred and early American choral music. Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for students. The choir’s founder and director, Charles R. Snyder, says the great water images in scripture were the inspiration for the theme At the River. “Knowing a few songs that expressed water images made me excited to explore some other music,” he said. “We are performing some numbers that we’ve done in years past and others that are new to the choir.” In addition to some songs inspired by water including At the River, Down to the River to Pray, and Deep River, the choir is also singing a group of songs written by John Ness Beck. “Beck is a celebrated Ohio composer and friend of mine,” said Snyder. “He also, incidentally, was the arranger for Coshocton’s Ed Montgomery’s professional singing group, “The Sounds of Ed Montgomery”. Mr. Beck would have been 80 this year.” A surprise suggestion just a few weeks ago introduced Snyder to a new musical setting of Come to the Water, and to its composer, Dr. Cary Ratcliff. “It has been invigorating for the choir to explore a new piece together in our last few rehearsals!” he said. “And as is our tradition at the conclusion of the spring concert, Community Choir alumni will be invited to join the current adult choir in singing Beautiful Savior and Peter Lutkin’s The Lord Bless You and Keep You.” Snyder says the Children’s Choir members are performing three songs from Carolyn Jenning’s A Menagerie of Songs—Bandicoot, Whale, and Panda. “They are also singing a great arrangement of He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands,” he said, “and they will join the Community Choir and Youth Chorale in singing John Rutter’s setting of the American camp song, Down by the Riverside.” The Youth Chorale is singing Hallelujah, Amen from Handel’s oratorio Judas Maccabeus, and they will also explore the water theme in the spiritual Roll, Jordan Roll, the American folk song, Shenandoah, and the gospel song The

The skills of a nurse may be necessary when assisting at-home patients requiring services that cannot be performed effectively and safely by nonprofessionals. Should the client need wound care, intravenous therapy, or injections, a nurse may be the appropriate professional to have available. Registered nurses or RNs are licensed to practice by the state, and have two years or more of specialized training. They are qualified to provide case management services. Licensed practical nurses, or LPNs, have one year of specialized training and are licensed to work under the supervision of an RN. Once the medical condition of a client is determined, his or her treatment plan will dictate whether an RN or LPN can provide the necessary treatment. If your loved one needs skilled home medical care to stay in their home, please call INTERIM HEALTHCARE OF COSHOCTON at 877-759-2106 today. We specialized in the placement of a wide variety of skilled medical professionals, including RNs, LPNs, and a variety of therapists. Our professional home healthcare aides can provide the necessary treatment that will allow your loved ones to stay in their homes longer. Call today to find out more about what we can do to make your parents’ medical care easier and more convenient for you both. We are located at 420 Downtowner Plaza. Home health care delivered right to your door. P.S. Home healthcare nurses can provide education on disease treatment and prevention.

He was always the type of person who wanted to help his community and was involved with the Red Cross Auction, the Keith Stipes and Randy Randy Wilson benefits, and the Veteran’s Auction.

When Amy Taylor traveled to New Orleans in the spring of 2007, she never imagined that the Lower Ninth Ward would become her home away from home. The Lower Ninth Ward was hit hard by Hurricane Katrina and the government deemed that 100% of the homes are uninhabitable. When Amy returned home to Coshocton County, she wondered what she could do to help the people whom she had grown to love in New Orleans. She decided, with the help of her boss Tom Edwards, President of Ace Hardware, to found the Riders for Relief charity motorcycle show. They will be having their second annual show on April 24 at the Auer Ace Hardware Complex. All proceeds go toward New Life Ministry Food Pantry and, a non-profit organization that helps volunteers and residents rebuild their homes in the Lower Ninth Ward. “It’s like no other place on earth,” said Amy, “It’s my home away from home. I’ve never seen anything like it where people are so compassionate and giving. I would recommend to anybody to go and partake in the culture because it will never leave you.” Last year, two big truck loads of food were taken to the New Life Ministry Food Pantry and money was raised to help buy rebuilding equipment to the people in New Orleans. Riders 4 Relief charity motorcycle show will feature something for everyone. Registration begins at 10 a.m. – Noon and costs $5 plus two non-perishable food items. The first 25 riders to register will also receive an event t-shirt. No early registration will be accepted. Judging will be Noon – 3 p.m. Ten classes will be judged and include American Import Antique and Classic, mild and full custom, trikes and sidecars, open dresser, special interest and sport bikes. There will also be an exhibition area available for those not wanting to be judged. Also, as a special treat, the public can watch master blacksmith, Brad Birkhimer create the Best of Show trophy. Autumn Health Care will also provide a kid’s playground that includes a bounce house, hoop shoot, temporary tattoos, craft, petting zoo, pony rides, and 100 gift bags go to the first 100 children. A decorated bicycle parade, “The Colors of Marti Gras” will begin at 1:30 p.m. with registration from 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. that will be open to kids 12 and under.

faculty members in the music department at Huntington in worship planning and performance. They have recently traveled to Japan to lead worship at a mission’s conference and performed at various schools and churches. Stuckey They will be performing many of their own compositions, which are mostly alternative rock style and contemporary worship music. Next weekend, F.R.E.T.S will be hosting a gospel night on May 1 from 7:30 – 10:30 p.m. Malcolm and Dorothy Shaw came up with the idea one evening while enjoying coffee at F.R.E.T.S. After talking with the management, they decided to host a gospel night that would feature many local musicians throughout the area. Performing artists include John Cotterman, Terry Shaw, and Chestnut Hill, among many other local artists. The Shaws are also hoping that area churches will participate as well. This event is something that Malcolm and Dorothy hope to have at least two to three times a year. “Coshocton is so artistic,” said Dorothy Shaw, “We’ve got so many artists and singers in the area. Coshocton is very talented.” Malcolm hopes that this will not be just a hymn sing-a-long, but a real gospel celebration with upbeat music and a variety of songs and performers. Anyone in the community is welcome to sing, and if interested, should call Malcolm and Dorothy at 294-4139. “I want to remind all people that just because the weather is warmer, we’re not just hot coffee,” said Gary Baker, staff at F.R.E.T.S. “We’ve got coffee and non-coffee, both frozen and cold drinks. The AC is cranked up, the band is playing, so come on in and have a good time.” There is no cover charge for F.R.E.T.S. and they are always looking for more volunteers. It’s a different venue than a church with no particular denomination, and everyone from all walks of life are welcome.

Bringing history to life is Kenneth Hammontree’s passion. After teaching history in the public schools for many years, Kenneth took his passion of bringing the past to life through historical portrayal to the road. He travels to schools, libraries, villages and towns portraying various men throughout history. On Monday, April 12, the Coshocton Public Library had the rare privilege to meet Meriwether Lewis, of the Lewis and Clark expedition. The year was 1806. Before the presentation, Debra Crowdy, staff at the library, gave a little back history of Lewis before he made his début at the Coshocton Public Library. Lewis had been President Jefferson’s personal secretary for nine months, and was later governor of the Louisiana Territory. Then, Hammontree arrived in full costume. From his moccasins to his deer leggings, all the way to the white fox fur hat on his head, Hammontree looked the part and did not break character. But it wasn’t his outfit that had the audience enthralled. His knowledge of the expedition held everyone’s attention to the very end. He spoke of how he was chosen with Clark to take on this expedition, how he made friends, and was attacked, but some aborigine tribes, how he and the explorers traded furs and other items, and how the infamous fourteen-year-old Sacagawea had her child during the expedition. He spoke of the over abundance of buffalo, the fear of rattlesnakes, and the pesky mosquitoes that refused to leave them alone. He spoke of how, on this expedition, the black man and the woman had the same vote and value as the white man. When Hammontree had finished, there were a few questions, and then the event ended. “I hope they received a sense of our history,” said Hammontree, “because any nation that does not know where they came from, doesn’t know where they are going. I hope they received the true history and that these characters can come alive.” Hammontree is an expert on the Civil War, Revolutionary War, and World War II. He has been involved with C-SPAN, the History Channel, and had a best-seller on the New York Times List, “There was a Time”, which is a novel about the Civil War. He has portrayed many famous men throughout history including Daniel Boone, George Washington, Simon Girty, also known as “The White Savage”, Johnny Appleseed, Paul Revere, Wolfgang Mozart, along with many others. He has also portrayed Tecumseh at the library in the past. The Coshocton Public Library is going well, considering their present funding situation. They have been able to offer the same services to the community even though their funding has been


Local youth harvest turkeys

Two area youth were among several that harvested a turkey over the weekend. These young hunters checked their turkey at Woodbury Outfitters on Saturday morning. With turkey season now in full gear, hunters are donning the camouflage, setting decoys and calling in a bid to capture a prize turkey. Tyler Smith, age 13, captured his 22.7 pound turkey in Guernsey County while hunting with his dad, Charles Mourer and brother Jacob, age 8. Both boys attend Ridgewood Schools. Dad commented about taking the boys hunting, “It’s really rewarding being with them and sharing the outdoors

with them. I would rather see them get something than me. It really does me good to see them succeed at hunting. It’s family time and good time for us to spend together”. Tyler remarked about getting his turkey, “It’s exciting”. Eight year old Aaron Adkins, who attends Warsaw Elementary, harvested a 20 pound turkey with a .410 while hunting with his Grandpa, Peter Miller. “It felt really good, it was awesome. My Grandpa set up a decoy and we were calling and calling. We were out about 2 or 3 hours, starting about 5:30 am this morning”.

The Frame Shop held an opening on Saturday, Apr. 17 for Jenna Shaw, a local artist who is a freshman at Akron University. “I’m going to Akron University for fine arts. I’m just hoping to fall into some area of art for my career. I’ve spent half my life in Texas so I kind of consider that my home too”. A 2009 graduate of River View, Jenna says her skill and talent for art comes from her Grandma and her Dad. According to her mom, the men on her Dad’s side of the family were all good with their hands. Shaw said. “I love everything about art. I have found that I really like 3-D. I have always considered myself a painter but the 3-D is cool. I like all of the new experiences at college.” Jenna also said that she will do commissioned art. Shara Prindle, owner of The Frame Shop, said, “I like to promote the art in Coshocton County and we have a lot of talent. People can come and see Jenna’s art until June 5 here at the shop.”

The Coshocton Jaycees were busily at work stuffing and addressing envelops to send to residents of Coshocton County asking for donations for the American Cancer Society. It was part of the Coshocton County Crusade, and that year, the Jaycees expected a record-breaking response. During its second week run, the crusade was already in high gear. According to Kenneth Berry, chairman of the drive, every household had been mailed, coin boxes had been distributed, and the money was piling in. Fifty percent of monies raised stayed in Coshocton County to help maintain the Coshocton Cancer Clinic and the rest went to the American Cancer Society.

The Coshocton Public Library finally had a new home. The library board had received the deed to the old Post Office building on the corner of Main and Seventh the previous Wednesday evening. After waiting seven months for approval, the library finally had the deed in hand. They filed the previous September to the Surplus Property Utilization Division of HEW in Chicago for the use of the building, and after a thorough inspection was made and requirements were met, the deed was granted. After being vacant for three years, the old building finally had new life again and was ready for use.

Coshocton County was dedicated to pedal for a good cause. The annual Hike Bike was ready to make its rounds through the city and participants in the event began raising money from sponsors. The Hike Bike was started to help raise money for people in the community with disabilities. Seventy percent of the monies raised would stay in Coshocton County and the rest would go to the State. This would be used to help fund programs geared toward people with special needs. The Hike Bike had raised $20,000 the previous year, ranking Coshocton second in the state and fourth in the nation.

“Going Green” seems to be a popular saying in today’s society, but children at the West Lafayette elementary school had the same idea in 1960. Outside on the playground, the Cub Scouts all gathered with their dapper uniforms to plant a red maple tree in honor of Arbor Day. At least 35 – 50 Cubs, along with Scoutmasters and den mothers, arrived early that Saturday morning to help plant a tree and make the world a little greener.

The annual Coshocton County Career center Open House, normally held in February and rescheduled twice due to the inclement weather this past winter, was held on Thursday evening, Apr. 15. With the usual delicious spaghetti dinner and over 100 local vendors, hundreds of guests had the opportunity to visit with friends, tour classrooms and workshops, or just mingle on a warm tax day. Darla Wagner, senior cosmetology instructor of the two year cosmetology program at the Career Center, said, “Currently we have 20 juniors and 13 seniors in the program. Our seniors are preparing to take their state exam which gives them the opportunity to work in a salon. Things that we study are hair, skin and nails. We are open to the public a couple days a week and we like people to come out and use the services. We are open Tuesday’s and Thursday’s for seniors. We recently had a fund-raiser for our students to take their boards. The community was wonderful and we raised $1600 with a goal of $1300! We had 80% placement this past year and our goal is for each student to become employed or go on to further education.” Always a favorite at the open house, Peggy Sue Wilson, owner and operator of Peggy Sue’s restaurant in Newcastle, commented, “I like coming to the open house because I get to see a lot of our customers and the older group that normally don’t drive in the winter time.” Wilson laughingly added, “I also meet a lot of new people here and get to tell them where the restaurant and Newcastle are!” Visitors to the open house were able to sample peanut butter, coconut cream, chocolate peanut butter and apple crumb top pie with peanut butter being the favorite.

Porteus speaks at township association dinner Township Trustees and township fiscal officers from across Coshocton County gathered at the Coshocton County Career Center on Friday evening, Apr. 16. Nearly half of local Township elected officials attended the annual banquet, prepared and served by Marilyn Wyler and the ladies of the Fresno United Methodist Church. Following the pledge of allegiance and a prayer by Kennedy Webb, guests enjoyed a delicious meal of baked steak, chicken, rolls, salad, vegetable medley, cheesy potatoes and assorted pies. Door prizes were donated by the various townships and other government offices throughout the county. Shelly Webb, Jackson Township fiscal officer, introduced special guests in attendance, which included all three Coshocton County Commissioners, local county and city officials, State Senator Jimmy Stewart, State Representative Troy Balderson, three candidates for Municipal Court Judge and others. Local farmer and current Ohio Farm Bureau President, Brent Porteus was the guest speaker and spoke on the animal rights and animal welfare issue that is sure to come up again this fall. Porteus said, “Everything I say tonight I believe to be true. Only 1.2% of the population is currently involved in the production of agriculture and only 22% of us have a connection with a rural area. In the United States, only 9.7% of our disposable income is used on food, which is just about the best in the world. In Canada, it’s 11.7%, Great Britain is 16.5%. In Russia, you spend almost 35% of your disposable income on food and in Egypt you spend almost half. Very few of us in America have to worry about where our next meal is coming from. Less than 15% of children in elementary school across the country realize that milk comes from a cow and their eggs come from the posterior end of a chicken. This is about animal rights versus animal welfare. The Humane Society of the United States had an operating budget of 100 million dollars – from 2008, the most recent numbers available. But, only ½ percent of 1% of the money raised went to the organizations that are hands on with local shelters. You can go to to check this out.” “Seven out of ten Americans believe that the HSUS is a pet shelter umbrella group. Their head is a gentleman by the name of Wayne Pacelle and he is a likeable guy and has painted the Ohio Farm Bureau and its members as corporate agriculture. “Mr. Pacelle is a vegan and his goal is to eliminate meat, milk and eggs from our diet”. Porteus went on to say that you will see television commercials this fall that are meant to paint agriculture and farmers as the bad guy and to make meat, milk and eggs either too expensive to consume or to portray them as not safe to consume. For the last fourteen or fifteen years they have embarked on a systematic plan to find ways to identify the production practices that are currently used in agriculture and find ways to make them more expensive”. Paul Schonauer, a nine year veteran township trustee for Keene Township, said, “I really enjoy the people and it’s a challenge – especially in the winter – to keep the roads clear. Township government is for the local people and we represent them as well as the people elected us to do the job”. Alan Donaker, currently serving his fourth term as a Perry Township Trustee, commented, “I enjoy working for the public. I think the township form of government is your most local, grassroots type of government. You get to meet the public out there on a one to one basis. You get to hear their complaints; if it’s a township issue then you can help them with it. I think the township form of government is the most rewarding. You get to help and meet a lot of people, including some you don’t know.” Sandy Fitch, fiscal officer for Jefferson Township and who currently serves as the President of the Township Association, added, “The township association banquet has been going on for around forty years and we have 100% participation of our local township officials. I think local township government is very important because we work in a smaller area. It impacts people more. If we lived in a larger area, like Columbus, your small street

may take three or four days to get clear while our trustees work around the clock to keep the roads clear. You know them.” Shelly Webb said, “The township form of government is really important because it caters to the people. We give a $500 scholarship to a student at Ridgewood and River View. The money we raise from the association fees goes to that and this dinner. We really have the dinner to thank our sponsors that support us all year and to show them how much we appreciate them. They are really the backbone of our organization. In regards to township government, the smaller you are, the better you can service people. That’s just logical.”

Editor’s note: Although space permits us from providing more comments from Porteus, The Beacon suggests you begin following this process and the activities of the Humane Society of the United States. Although supporters were successful in the November voting last fall to establish a livestock board under the passing of state Issue 2, this group is not going to go away. As we live, work and play in a largely rural area with strong ties to agriculture and family farms, this issue is significant to Coshocton County. Get involved and know what is happening.

Home and Outdoors

After the March 22 meeting, members stayed to put fringe on fleece blankets that were given to the hospital. These small blankets are given out to children and some adults. Last year, a 4-H club made some of these blankets as a community project, which is a requirement of each club every year. These were given to CCMH. Another group of women at Conesville United Methodist Church has donated their time cutting out blankets and fringe, and then the Pink Ladies assembled them. This was a wonderful outreach service for their church. On behalf of the Coshocton County Memorial Hospital and The Pink Ladies Auxiliary, we certainly appreciate these gifts. Upcoming events include a spring book fair May 6 – 7 in the Grand Central Station. Also coming up in May is the annual geranium and plant sale Friday, May 7 from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Saturday May 8 from 9 a.m. – Noon at the Johnson Building at the corner of 14th and Walnut. You must enter from Orange Street.
