River View to present ‘Guys and Dolls’ PRACTICE

740.622.1408 0002_042413



COTC has partnerships with a growing number of universities, including Muskingum, so that students can transfer seamlessly to earn a bachelor’s degree.



WARSAW – After looking at 21 different plays, Deborah English still couldn’t find one that she was excited to do, but when Dawn Anglin suggested “Guys and Dolls,” she knew she had the right play for River View High school students to present. “I asked her if there were any plays she hadn’t done and wanted to do and she suggested this one,” English said. “I did it 10 years ago so

BY JOSIE SELLERS I knew it was a fun show to do.” The play takes its audience to New York City in the 1940s and into the life of gamblers and their love interests. “It has a lot of great songs like ‘Luck be a Lady’ that people will know,” English said. The River View High School Music Department will present the play at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, May 3-4, in the high school auditorium. Admission is $5. Dinner also will be available before the performances from 5 to 7 p.m. Cost is $7 for adults and $5 for children under 12. Fifty-one students are in the play including Ross Anglin who plays Harry the Horse. “He’s kind of a rough and tough guy,” Anglin said. The junior at River View enjoys being in

plays with his friends. “It lets you see other parts of your personality that you didn’t know you could show and it’s also fun to see your friends as other characters,” he said. Senior Alexis Speicher plays Arvide Abernathy and has taken part in plays throughout her high school career. “It’s such hard work, but it’s so rewarding,” she said. “Every year I think, ‘why do I do this,’ but I really love it so much. It’s my favorite time of the year.” Junior Samuel Hart, who plays Nathan Detroit, also enjoys being on stage. “The night of the play, it’s such a shock to be up on stage and see the audience, but it feels so good to get applause,” he said. Hart enjoys acting because it gives him the opportunity to be different characters. “It also helps you learn to be yourself and not to worry,” he said. In addition to being on stage, students also are in the play’s orchestra and help in the sound booth, back stage and with painting the set. There also are a number of teachers, parents, alumni and community members who help make the production happen. “I want as many kids involved as possible because I think it can really transform a person,”



River View High School students rehearse a scene from, “Guys and Dolls” April 17, in the auditorium at the school. The school’s music department will present the play at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, May 3-4. Admission is $5. For more photos from rehearsal, visit BEACON PHOTO

Ensure that our county continues to prosper LETTER TO THE EDITOR


Dear Editor, We believe that those of us who live in Coshocton County want a good a quality of life. We want our county to be prosperous, to be attractive, to be a place we want to raise our families and ultimately retire. Voting for the Parks levy will help insure that our county continues to be the place where we want to live. Lake Park, Burt Park, Warsaw Community Park and the smaller community parks in Bakersville, Conesville, Nellie, New Castle, Plainfield and Tiverton struggle to meet expenses. The two larger parks, Lake Park and Warsaw attempt to exist on user fees, fundraisers, help from local governments, and local foundations. This park levy is one-half mil. A small amount but still a tax. None of us are happy about paying taxes but this is a local tax that stays in our county. It will pay the wages of lifeguards, groundskeepers, and other park personnel who will, in turn spend their paychecks locally. Welltended parks draw people into our county. These folks will buy food, gas, and visit local stores and hotels. Parks add to the economic wellbeing of communities. We firmly believe it is time for all of us to step up and support our parks. The passing of this levy benefits everyone in every part of the county. Sincerely, Terry and Ann Miller

COSHOCTON - The grand opening of the Coshocton Opportunity School’s art show will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, April 26, on the third floor of the civic hall on Main Street. The show is called “Shadows” and will feature a variety of art, but mostly paintings and sculptures. “Our artwork brings things that are hidden into the light and helps students deal with emotional issues,” said Joan Staufer, who teaches art at the school. Close to 100 pieces will be displayed in the show by around 20 artists, including work by the parent of a graduate. “Art opens up dialogue and gives the opportunity for things that are hidden to be talked about safely,” Staufer said. “Just splattering paint can be an emotional release.” The show will be open again for the May 3, First Friday and by appointment after that. To view the artwork, call Staufer at 330-897-0125. “It’s important for the community to see the truth of people who live here and I also think it helps boosts the artists’ self esteem to have their work on display,” Staufer said. “Our parents and grandparents have been supportive and I think this will be pretty exciting.”

Staser was a barber, trustee and commander of Post 634 for 20 years. He also placed flags,

signed for a purchase price of $135,000, from the Calvary Baptist Church, relocating Shiloh Baptist Missionary Church to 404 S. Seventh St. The very first church service in this new building was on Easter Sunday in 1994. In this new church home, and under the leadership of Pastor Biggers, many new ministries were started. They include: The Drop -In Center, P.A.L., The Ohio Share Program, and the Peoples Community Law Center in Coshocton and Licking County. In October 2005, the Frances E. Meredith Second Chance Center opened. The center was dedicated in the name of Sister Frances Meredith a faithful servant of the Lord. Sister Frances Meredith served Shiloh for many years as the Missionary President, before going home to be with the Lord in 2002. The Center operated a 10 bed full service homeless shelter, in the basement of the church, the first of its kind in the Coshocton area. In 2005 the shelter served 18 people, including two families with children. Because of a weak economy beginning in 2005 the Shiloh church membership has been severely affected, with numbers dwindling. Sept. 6, 2011 Shiloh reopened The Second Chance Homeless Shelter. After being blessed with a $30,000 grant from the Schooler Foundation, Shiloh renovated the parsonage to operate as the new Shelter. In January 2012, Shiloh commissioned the Greater Coshocton



COSHOCTON - Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church launched its mortgage burning campaign April 11, with mass mailings to churches, the business community and individuals, inviting them to participate in this historical campaign. For 106 years Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church has been vital to the heart and growth of the Coshocton community with its many missionary activities. The Shiloh Baptist Missionary Church began in the home of Thomas and Mary Gorman in 1907 with 14 members. In 1913 they became the owners of the church building at 227 Burt Ave. where it served for 81 years. In 1994 Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church was relocated to its current location at 404 S. Seventh St. When Rev. Williamson left in 1969 the church doors were closed for two years. However, with God, all things are possible. Rev. Dr. Charles Noble of Newark was instrumental in reopening Shiloh’s doors. Shiloh was blessed with its current pastor, Rev. Cliff N. Biggers, who brought with him a loving family. Serving as pastor since 1990, under his care and teachings, Shiloh has added new members, performed many baptisms, and witnessed many marriage ceremonies. Pastor Biggers was also responsible for the Willie C. Jones Building Fund, which on March 1994 at noon, allowed the papers to be

Upcoming Events


April 26th, 1953 The local Salvation Army decided to build an addition to their existing building when the board heard about the facilities in other cities and how they were increasing effectiveness of the Salvation Army work. Ground for the new two-story addition had been donated by M.D. Custer and a generous donation from the estate of the late Carrie Glass made it possible to break ground that past November. A cornerstone ceremony was to take place the next Sunday with a special half-hour ceremony. The new 100x50 foot addition would house Sunday School rooms, a gymnasium, a shower and locker room facilities, and a supervisor room.


April 28th, 1963 The Stone Container Corp. wanted to improve wooded areas in Coshocton and surrounding counties. Recently, they distributed 25,000 trees to their Tree Farm Family members to be planted that spring on their sparsely-wooded lands. Their goal was to improve timber harvesting, marketing, fire protection, woodlot grazing prevention, grape vine cutting, and tree pruning, and to maximize timber quality growth, and returns. Stone Container also planned to intensify forest management on established tree farms and add new members to their tree farm family. Currently, they had 14 tree farm families with a total of 1200 acres.


April 29th, 1973 Lynn Wells of Warsaw had received the national FFA’s highest degree, The American Farmer, making him the second River View graduate to receive this honor.

He increased his gross sales and net profit 20 times in eight years and dealt in raising a diversity of crops and livestock, ranging from raising feeder lambs to corn and tomatoes. In 1969, he was named one of the top five FFA members in Ohio.

class,” Esselburn said. “When she was pregnant with Addy we called her our mascot.” Esselburn didn’t play softball this year, but she was involved with the program for several years in the past. “I had to go through lot of hard things my freshman year and Coach Snyder helped me beyond just coaching,” Esselburn said. “I know a lot of other girls on the team also feel close to her because she helps with more than just school and softball.” The fundraiser will include a bake sale, concession food, a 50/50 drawing and a silent auction. Admission to the game will be by donation. “There also is a blood drive that same day in memory of Addy,” Esselburn said. Proceeds from the event will aid the Snyder family with expenses from this tragedy and Esselburn said they may also help out with a tree and bench in her memory at the park in Warsaw and a scholarship fund in her name. “We are all pretty close around here,” she said. “Everyone knows everybody and when someone is in trouble we all pitch in and help. We even had kids from Coshocton supporting the family.” Esselburn plans to go to college to become a teacher and credits Stephanie as inspiring her profession. “She made me 6’ T-post think, ‘wow, this is $0.75 OFF what I want to do,’” 9am-2pm she said.

April 24th, 1983 After must interest from genealogy researchers in Coshocton County, Probate Judge C. Jennings Pierce had just announced his intentions to put more Coshocton records on microfilms. The court keeps many items on microfilm including trusts, wills, estates, land sales, marriage licenses, and birth certificates, and Pierce planned to add even more to microfilm soon for the benefit of researchers. Pierce had observed that requests for genealogical information had remained steadily high since, “Roots” made its impact in print and on television. He said the court received two to three letters daily from out-ofstate residents requesting information. All information was obtained from microfilm of the Coshocton Tribune at the Coshocton County Library.

COSHOCTON – Over the years, judges from America in Bloom have encouraged Coshocton to focus on urban forestry and a group of creative-minded citizens are finding a unique way to do just that. A Root Ball Park is being developed by Anne Cornell from the Pomerene Center for the Arts and a diverse group of team members. “We want art to have a reason to fit in,” Cornell said. “You just don’t want to plop something down with no context. The tree initiative is our context. We will move them around and then plant them in the fall to be part of our urban forestry.” The Root Ball Park idea was designed by two architects from Brooklyn, N.Y. who traveled to Coshocton earlier this month to meet with Cornell and her fellow teammates. The roots of the trees in their park are encased in bags that contain bean bags for people to sit on. They also are portable. “People are responding very positively to the idea,” Cornell said. A recent survey done showed that 92 percent of 71 people who responded said “yes” to the project. Ninety percent of those who took the survey also said they would hang out in the park, 89 percent said they would invite friends from

COSHOCTON - Despite a lack of depth, the Coshocton High School boys track and field team are not without high hopes and achievable goals during the 2013 season. “The team members are very young, but we hope to build experience, confidence, and hopefully some winning by the end of the season,” said head coach Craig Hamilton. The Redskins are led by returning regional qualifier Saquore Harris and newcomer Kyle Corder. The pair gives the Red and Black a solid onetwo punch in the sprints with Harris also competing in the long jump while Corder is involved in the high jump and pole vault. Harris has had some early-season success, jumping a distance of 18feet, 9-inches in a triangular meet victory over West Muskingum and Danville and recorded a winning time of 11.35 when he won the 100-meter dash in a dual meet against Dover. Corder placed fifth in the high jump during the Joe Kasper Memorial Invitational at Meadowbrook and was third in the 100 against Dover. He has also cleared 10-6 in the pole vault in capturing first in a triangular meet with New Philadelphia and Zanesville Rosecrans. Also competing in the sprints are senior Jordan Williamson, junior Chase Ashcraft and sophomore Donald Stiteler. Stiteler has made an impact as a newcomer with a winning time of 24.25 in the 200 against West M. and Danville, took third in a dual at Maysville and sixth in the Meadowbrook Invite. Also competing in the 100, he has notched second- and fourth-place finishes. The Redskins also boast a solid 4x100 relay team with Stiteler, Trysten Van Atta, Corder and Harris turning in a time of 46.0. Senior Austin McCrea is competing in the sprints and long jump with Mark Lepley in the middle distances, Devon VanAtta in the shot put and discus. McCrea has leapt to a distance of 17-1.5 in the long jump in the Redskins’ triangular win over West M and Danville while Lepley won the 400 with a time of 56.01 and was sixth at the Meadowbrook Invite. Juniors on the team include Cody Williams in the sprints, Micah Demoss in the sprints and hurdles, Nathan Lain in the distances and Jordan Saylor in the shot and discus. Saylor was victorious in the win over West M and Danville with a shot put distance of 42-10 and discus with a 107-1.5. Lain’s top efforts came against Dover, timing in at 2:18.7 to win the 800 and recording a 5:11.4 to take the 1600 and was seventh at the Meadowbrook Invite. Demoss beat his Dover counterparts with a time of 17.83 in the 110 hurdles and was sixth at the Meadowbrook Invite. Representing the sophomore class are Nathan Leopard, Devin Cutshall and DeShaun Anderson in the shot and discus while freshmen team members include Marcus Carroll and Tristyn VanAtta in the sprints, Kyle Bergeron, Nick Kirkpatrick, Austin Spitzer and Jacoby Spang in the distance events, Ethan Woodie, Tanner Shaw, Blake Erman and Gavin Beaumont in the shot and discus. Kirkpatrick had a winning effort against West M and Danville with a time of 2:26 in the 800. He and Bergeron are also competing in the pole vault.

COSHOCTON - The Coshocton High School girls track and field team may be very young, but the hope is that it will continue to build, gain experience, confidence, and eventually get a taste of winning by the end of the season. With head coach Keith Matz at the helm, he believes that will certainly be the case in the 2013 campaign. “We look to improve every time we compete,” said Matz. “That is what will make this season a success.” The Lady Redskins are led by senior Nicki Carling, a regional qualifier in the 100- and 200-meter dash while junior Casey Fortney returns to compete in the middle distance events. Carling captured first in the 200 in an early triangular against West Muskingum and Danville, timing out at 29.02 and improved to a 28.33 in a later meet. She also has had a time of 12.76 in the 100. Fortney narrowly missed advancing from the district last year. She is competing in the 400, 800 and 1600. She has been victorious in the 800 with a time of 2:44.7 against West M. and Danville but dropped her time significantly, running 2:31.8 to capture first at the Maysville Invite. “Having Nicki and Casey stepping up as leaders, they are setting a good example for their teammates,” Matz said. Others who are competing in the sprint events are juniors Brook Kobel and Quantesha Carlton. Carlton recorded a winning time of 13.1 in the 100 in an early-season meet. Senior Allie Dickerson is representing the Lady Redskins in the 1600 and 3200 runs. Kobel is excelling in the 100 hurdles while both are competing in the 100 dash and relay events. Sophomores include Rachel Ramsey in the 100, Linsey Desender in the 400 and sprint relays, Lauren Hire in the 800 and distance relays and Chelsea McFarland in the 400 and relays. Joining Dickerson in the distance events are freshmen Mary Skelton and Raven Durben. The lone pole vaulter on the team is sophomore Georgia Brown. In the field events, junior Javanna Ramsey, sophomore Kelbie Johnson and freshmen Kaitlyn Krebs and Aisa Kling are competing in the shot put and discus. Thus far, the Lady ‘Skins have split a triangular event, defeating Danville but losing to West Muskingum; lost a dual meet against Dover and placed seventh at the Maysville Invitational. “We are very young, but they are working very hard and improving every week,” Matz said. “It takes time to learn the events and we stress your biggest competition is yourself.”

WARSAW - It would be hard to believe that River View High School boys track & field coach is superstitious when it comes to numbers. The big reason is because he feels lucky and fortunate to have 13 team members who are returning lettermen who are leading a large contingent of athletes on the 2013 squad. “On the track will be our strength,” said Mike Gray, the Black Bears’ veteran coach. “We are young in the jumps but we have some newcomers who will help.” Among the letter winners who return include seniors Clay Holsclaw and Garrett Gee, both whom are seeking their fourth varsity letter in the springtime sport. Holsclaw is competing in the sprints and throws while Gee specializes in the middle distances and hurdles. Other seniors include sprinter/jumper Nate Davis, sprinter Craig Murray, sprinter Max Thomsen and sprinter/jumper Marcel List. In a recent 83-63 win over Claymont, Holsclaw had a season-best throw of 132-0 in the discus. While in an 81-56 win over New Philadelphia, Finton claimed the long jump and high jump with leaps of 18-2.5 and 5-6, respectively. Juniors on the squad are sprinter Brandon Adams, distance/high jumper Corey Miller, thrower Tyler Stein, sprinter Andy Parsons, vaulter/ sprinter/hurdler Trevis Stamper and sprinter/thrower Trevon Hannah. In the win over New Philadelphia, Adams captured the 100 with a time of 11.4, Miller won the 1600 in 5:05 and Boals was first in the 200 with a time of 24.0, Stamper added first-place finishes in the 300 hurdles with a 43.0 and the pole vault, clearing 10-6. Parsons added a win in the 400 with a 55.6. The relays have also been solid with Adams, Stamper, sophomore Doug Boals and Gee won the 1600 relay with a time of 3:45 against New Philadelphia but lowered their time to 3:41.5 in the win over Claymont. Among the sophomore class are distance runner Steven Scheetz, sprinter/hurdler Dalton Hammond, middle distance/hurdler Chris St. Clair, sprinter Doug Boals, distance runner Jakob Eick, middle distance men James Smith, Lane Poland and Connor Hill, distance runner Marcus Watson, sprinter/jumper Clay Liston and distance runner Nick Wilson and Lane Poland. Against New Philadelphia, Scheetz won the 3200 with a 10:44. He also was victorious against Claymont with a time of 2:07.6 in the 800 and a 4:42 in the 1600. Also competing as freshmen are thrower/jumper Nick Fitzgerald, distance men Austin Wilson, Jacob Yacapraro, Harley Mathias and Caleb Pendola and sprinters Andy Smith and Tyler Pinkard. Among the top newcomers, Coach Gray has been impressed with Murray, Thomsen, List, Hannah, Eick, Liston, Watson and Pinkard, When hosting the season-opening Black Bear Relays, River View finished with 76 points and was runner-up to Licking Valley, which tallied 89. The Black Bears did well by finishing first in the 4x1600 with Scheetz, Eick, Parsons and Miller recording a time of 20:35.4. Pinkard, Thomsen, Scheetz and Liston captured the medley relay in 3:55.

WARSAW - Some of the potential issues that are facing the 2013 River View High School girls track & field team have basically turned out to be non-issues. “We have a very small girls’ team this year and we will probably get off to a rough start in the sprints until some of the younger girls can gain some experience,” said head coach Vince Andrews, now in his ninth season. In spite of his forecast, the sun is shining on the Lady Bears as they captured the season-opening Black Bear Relays title by beating secondplace Licking Valley by 29 points, scoring 122 points. That was followed by a narrow 69-68 loss to New Philadelphia and an 87-61 defeat at the hands of Claymont, but the Lady Bears were extremely competitive. Returning letter winners include senior distance runners Sheridan Douglass, Payton Wright and Raven Wilson, along with jumper/sprinter/ hurdler Katie Smith, whose top effort in the long jump has been 14-feet, 8-inches. Kim Scheetz, also a senior distance runner, is one of the top newcomers to the team. Juniors who lettered last year are discus thrower Lindsay Lupher and sprinter Courtney Rodriguez. Lupher has had a season-best toss of 106-11 in the discus while Smith’s top effort in the long jump has been 14-3.5. Bolstering the junior class are newcomer sprinters Bailey Moore and Madison Speicher. Sophomores who return include hurdler/sprinter Kassidy Brillhart, sprinters Shelby Mizer and Tori Neal, long jumper/sprinter Kamryn Douglass, vaulter/jumper Fawn Denbow and distance runner Darby Croft. Freshmen team members are sprinters Morgan Ashcraft, Sarah Douglass and Kayla Metz; throwers Emily Barnett, Amy Johnson and Breanna Johnson and distance runners Julia Royer and Bella Pendola. Other freshmen on the squad are jumper Cee Cee Brown, hurdler/ sprinter Kristin Douglass and pole vaulter Brittany Schaefer. “We have a very strong distance squad led by Raven (Wilson), Lindsay (Lupher) will lead our shot put and discus corps and Katie (Smith) and Courtney (Rodriguez) will lead us in the long jump and Sprints. Key losses from last year’s squad that compiled a 35-24 regular season record include sprinters Rodehaver and Kristin Douglass, distance runners Rachel Hammond and Ali Dawson and field events specialists Kaitlyn Martin, Mackenzie Griffith and Michaela Elson. Kristin Douglass has recorded a time of 51.9 in the 300 hurdles and an 18.23 in the 100s while Pendola has a victory in the 1600 under her belt. “We have some really good athletes on this team,” Andrews said. “By the time we run the ECOL championships, I feel we will be really competitive. We’re hoping to improve on our third-place finish last year.”

WEST LAFAYETTE - With a new head coach in place, the Ridgewood High School boys track and field team is seeking success not only now, but also for years to come. The Generals are a relatively young team squad in the 2013 season, but that hasn’t diminished the expectations. Ridgewood finished as runner-up in the Inter-Valley Conference a year ago with its northern rival Garaway capturing the crown. Jared Lindig and Blake Feldner have provided leadership in the early season as the team roster of 21 contains just one senior under first-year coach John Slusser. The Ridgewood weight throwers were double victors at the Cambridge Relays. Feldner led the Generals’ trio in with a shot put effort of 39-6 while Lindig was at 38-9 and Trevor Fuller 35-10. In the discus, Lindig had a meet-best effort of 131-7 with Feldner at 105-1 with Tommy Layman also contributing to the win. Junior Tevis Whitt and sophomore Jarrett Art along with freshmen Billy Bailey, Cole Lillibridge and Garrett Bethel are the top sprinters. Art will anchor the jumping events. Whitt, Thor Reed, Garrett Foster and Lillibridge combined to win the 800-meter sprint relay at Cambridge with a time of 1:47.3. Reed, Matt Saylor and Phillip Shannon will lead the runners between the 400 and the 1,600. “Our young guys are doing a nice job,” Cabot said. “We just need to get better every day we are on the track.” Thus far, the Generals have participated in the Claymont Invitational, Newcomerstown Relays and Cambridge Invitational. In Inter-Valley Conference competition, they have faced off against Sandy Valley and Tuscarawas Central Catholic in an away meet while hosting Newcomerstown and Strasburg in an all-Orange and Black event. At Cambridge, the Generals placed second behind host Cambridge with 44 points to the Bobcats’ 56. “A lot of our best runners are freshmen, and no matter how good they are, they are going up against seniors,” Cabot said. “Our goal by the end of the year is to be competitive in the league as always.”

explore who is in the community and the places in it. One of challenges Coshocton faces is public spaces for people to gather. If you have this, energy will grow up around them and even lead to the potential for business growth.” Cornell said the group received initial funding for the project, but is working on developing an “I Heart Root Balls,” product line to help raise more money. “When we make the bags for the trees we will have leftover material to use for some of our products,” she said. “There will be no waste from this project. All material will be repurposed and reused.” The group also will be looking for more man power to help care for the trees. The Root Ball Park project will use a new model being developed at the Pomerene Center called The Community Studio. “I’m transitioning from my position as Pomerene Director to Pomerene Artistic Director and Community Studio Artist,” Cornell said. “The Community Studio is an extension of the Pomerene Center for the Arts into the community. Its purpose is to encourage the general public to create public art in all of its various forms. Although these public works of art may not be practical solutions to complex community problems, they may serve to promote collaboration and creative thinking that can plant the seeds for real world answers for the challenges we face.” JOSIE@COSHOCTONCOUNTYBEACON.COM

WEST LAFAYETTE - The 2013 Ridgewood High School girls’ track and field team will have its work cut out if it has aspirations of duplicating the success of past teams. “We are very young,” said second-year girls coach Brendan McKee. “We have a lot of freshmen and sophomores this season.” The Lady Generals are counting upon senior Victoria Wiggins and junior Jessica McCoun to provide much of the leadership for the young squad and both are expected to anchor the sprint events, with Wiggins also leading Ridgewood in the high jump and long jump. Throughout the early season, sprints appear to be one of the Lady Generals’ strengths with the foursome of senior Hallie Schwab, McCoun, freshman Laura Crawford and Wiggins combining to win the 4x100-meter relay at the Cambridge Relays with a time of 56.6 while taking second in the 4x800 with a 2:02.4. Also, freshmen Holly McCoy and Emily Mourer joined Crawford and McCoun to take second in the 800 sprint medley with a clocking of 2:11.1. Wiggins has cleared 4-8 in the high jump while freshman McCoy jumped 4-6. The Lady Generals were second at the Cambridge Relays, scoring 48 points compared to 56 for host Cambridge. Another upperclassmember is senior Mackenzie Bates, who is one of the team’s top competitors in the shot put and discus. Sophomore Amanda Lowery will add depth in the jumps with Crawford helping in the 200 and 400. The Lady Generals have competed in the Claymont Invitational, Newcomerstown Relays and Cambridge Invitational while battling Sandy Valley and Tuscarawas Central Catholic in an away meet while hosting Newcomerstown and Strasburg in an all-Orange and Black event. Assisting McKee is Nate Carpenter. “We are focusing on getting better each and every day,” McKee said.

Lady Generals look for success in track and field BY JIM BARSTOW

Chamber dinner honors several


they might recognize the honoree. As Coffman delivers the speech, clues and associations within the community gradually provide most in the room with this year’s honoree. The 2013 Coshoctonian Award winner was indeed honored, as the title was bestowed on Judge C. Fenning Pierce. Guests stood and applauded as Judge Pierce made his way to the podium to accept the award from Coffman. Judge Pierce held the position of Judge of the Probate and Juvenile Court for 28 years. In his speech, Coffman used these words to best describe Pierce, “Dependable, devoted, decisive, defender, deliberator, developer, distinguished, disciplined, and a disciple.” Born and raised in Coshocton, Pierce attended Lincoln School and graduated from Coshocton High School. He graduated from Ohio Wesleyan and was a teacher and worked at Edmont before being accepted into Vanderbilt Law School. Pierce estimates that he has had somewhere between 15 to 17 thousand young teens appear before him on traffic charges alone. He modestly says, “I saw it as an opportunity to affect the lives of many young people, and provide a positive influence in their lives.” The annual Chamber dinner also honors a Small Business of the Year, Employee of the Year and a fairly new honor, Young Leader of the Year.

This year, two were honored with the Rotary Employee of the Year, Deborah Crowdy, local history and genealogy specialist with the Coshocton Public Library and Jed McCoy with Coshocton Job & Family Services. Both humbly accepted the award and thanked their fellow employees for helping them in their positions. Amy Hasseman presented the pair with their award and was herself surprised and shocked later in the program when she was feted with the Young Leader of the Year Award, presented by Dr. Bonnie Coe, President of Central Ohio Technical College. Crowdy’s nominator described her as “exhibits exemplary attitude every day and always works to go above and beyond the library’s patrons expectations, always willing to take on the extra tasks at work.” Crowdy said in her acceptance, “How honored I am and how humbled I am by this and I take it as a representation of all those who perhaps have not been recognized and I want to thank all of my volunteers.” The co-award winner, Jed McCoy, is an employment coordinator with Coshocton Job

PIERCE Judge C. Fenning Pierce said following the ceremony, “It’s something that I never really dreamed about because I didn’t think that I was the type of candidate that someone would want. But it’s here and it’s wonderful. It is a truly humbling thing as I consider all of the prior recipients of the award. I’m just very blessed.” When asked about the community and its impact, Pierce said, “I think particularly it’s the nurturing that I found for kids here, for myself and also for our daughters. They always talk about that it takes a village to raise a child. I felt that Coshocton fits that bill and still does. That’s what stuck out to me about Coshocton over the years and just the friendliness of the folks. It’s a wonderful place to live and raise a family.” MARK@COSHOCTONCOUNTYBEACON.COM

COSHOCTON - Bees are beneficial insects that pollinate flowering plants by transferring pollen from one flower to another. This is important for plant reproduction and food production. In fact, pollinators are responsible for one out of every three bites of food you take. While the honey bee gets most of the credit for providing pollination, there are actually about 500 bee species in Ohio, as well as other pollinators! On May 2, Denise Ellsworth, Program Director, Honey Bee & Native Pollinator Education at the OARDC Bee Lab in Wooster, will discuss Ohio’s pollinators and plants you can grow that will keep them coming back for more. The program will be Thursday, May 2 from 6:30 - 8 p.m. at the Frontier Power Community Room. Hosted by the Coshocton County OSU Extension office, registration is only $5 per person and due by April 29. To register, log on to for a downloadable flyer or pick one up at the OSU Extension office in the County Services Building, Room 110, 724 South 7th Street, Coshocton.

COSHOCTON - Allie Norman is a typical nine-year-old beautiful little girl who spends her free time watching Spongebob Squarepants and coloring. She also loves anything to do with monkeys and she wants to grow up to be a model. But on Friday, April 5, Allie’s and her family’s life changed. Three weeks prior, Allie had been suffering from a bad cold that just wouldn’t seem to go away and had lost 10 pounds in three weeks. Because of this, she visited the local hospital to have a simple iron test done, but due to a recent incident in her neighborhood, Allie’s mother, Jessica Cunningham, asked that more extensive blood work be done. That is when doctors and nurses discovered that nineyear-old Allie had leukemia. It was something Allie’s family had never expected to hear. “We thought it was just going to be a viral infection or mono,” said Allie’s grandmother, Kat Cunningham, of Coshocton. The next morning, Allie was sent to Columbus Children’s Hospital for more blood work and has since undergone three treatments of chemo and other medical procedures. “She’s the strongest little girl,” said Kat. “She’s just great. She’s tough. She’s going to beat this!” Allie and her 12-year-old sister, Belle, attend Tri-Valley Schools and are both involved in 4-H. However, because of Allie’s condition, she will not be allowed to participate in 4-H for two years due to her chemo treatments. She also

won’t be allowed to attend school for the remainder of this year and most of next. Just to leave her house, Allie will need to wear a mask to avoid infections. Allie has A.L.L. Leukemia, which, according to, is a cancer of the blood and bone marrow and is the most common type of cancer in children. In Allie’s case, since the cancer was detected early, doctors are very hopeful about her situation. “She’s got a lot going for her,” said Allie’s grandfather, Jeff Cunningham, of Coshocton, “She’s at the best age to have it. If she were younger, it could cause brain damage. If she were older, her chance of survival would be lower.” When Allie’s family heard the news, they knew right away that something had to be done and they decided to have a benefit for Allie to raise money for her medical bills and trips to Columbus. That’s when her sister, Belle, came up with the name, Allie’s Rally, and even designed a ribbon that has been printed on teeshirts to sell at the benefit. There will also be decals and rubber bracelets for sale at the benefit. In keeping with Allie’s love of monkeys, Belle designed the bracelets to say, “Allie is one tough monkey”. Allie’s Rally will be Saturday, April 27 at The Shack located on Township Road 301. The auction will begin at 4 p.m. with Paul Bratton as the auctioneer, followed by a steak dinner for a donation of $15. Other food will be available for kids. “I’ve had so many friends help me with this benefit, it’s unbelievable,” said Kat. “I have the best friends in the world. We’ve never had a benefit before and the response we’ve been getting is crazy. We’re really pleased with knowing this is going to be a really nice benefit.” Local Coshocton County businesses as well as other surrounding businesses have been overwhelming with their support.

She began her professional life as a high school and college English teacher. Soon, however, the writing compulsion assaulted her. Encouraged by a faithful spouse and a circle of dedicated writing friends, she plunged full-time into writing. Her book, ‘Dancing through Fire’, recounts the massacre of the Moravian Christian Indians at Gnadenhutten. JoAnn strove to tell their story in the way they would have recounted it themselves. How, she wondered, could she make sense of a brutal, senseless act? She concluded that telling the story, thereby passing along its memory, helped to shape meaning out of a shapeless, heartbreaking event. ‘Dancing through Fire’ is a recipient of the Ohio Arts Council Fellowship Grant for Creative Writing. 6:30 - 8 p.m. Monday, May 6: Monday Book Talk: ‘Buddha in the Attic’ by Julie Otsuka: This gorgeous novel tells the story of a group of young women brought from Japan to San Francisco as picture brides nearly a century ago.
