ANTIQUE QUILTS HIT THE TRAIL By Jan Myers

Many of Coshocton County’s antique quilts have come out of storage and are on display, some even in a big way! Coshocton’s Quilt Barn Trail has officially been unveiled with the installation of the first two squares that took place on April 17. Patterns developed from antique Coshocton quilts have been designed, transferred and painted onto 8’ x 8’ wooden squares. The

Helen and Dan Moody also brought along and displayed the original quilt from which the pattern was taken. The artists who painted the quilt square were also in attendance. It has

first three squares have been completed and more are in the development stages. All of the quilt barn patterns that will be used for Coshocton County’s trail will be based on antique Coshocton County family quilts. The first square, depicting a garden rose quilt pattern, was hung at the Clary Gardens barn on State Route 541 just

been estimated that each quilt square takes approximately 30 man hours to paint. “It was a very proud moment seeing the first square go up,” said Lisa Jane Martin, one of the artists who worked on the square. “I’ve enjoyed being part of the process. I’ve worked on these first three squares and I can’t wait to get started on the next

ones.” Coshocton artists who have volunteered their painting time so far have been have been: Donna Gleckler, Gina Rupe, Lisa Jane Martin, Esther Marie Versch, Shara Prindle, and Dorothy and Malcolm Shaw. Brad Sarchet’s Building Trades class at the Coshocton Career Center cut and primed the wood panels for the 8 x 8 foot squares, and Bill Edwards volunteered to put the squares together. Assisting from Frontier Power have been: Mark Fabian, Ken Hunter, Chad Schumaker, Josh Haumschild, Kyle Cramblett and Andrew Vickers. The process of hanging the squares will be different for each location depending on the type of barn and the setting. “The assistance from Frontier Power in installing these quilt squares is invaluable,” stated Anne Cornell, member of Coshocton’s Quilt Barn Trail committee. “We certainly would have a difficult time doing this project if they weren’t willing to volunteer their time to help us. This has definitely been a project with high community participation.” Martin says it’s rather a misconception that you have to be a skilled artist to work on painting the quilt barn squares. “Although you do need to be able to paint, anyone who wants to help can certainly do so,” continued Martin. Another quilt square with a chalice design was also installed by Frontier Power employees on April 17th on the barn owned David and Brenda Lozowski along State Route 643. A third square is completed and will be installed in May on the Scheetz barn also on State Route 643. “It’s so striking to see that chalice pattern on the barn when I drive by,” continued Cornell. “It’s such a statement about the historical significance of quilts and family history in our community.”

About Our Logo

I thought our readers might want to know what our logo signifies. The outline of Coshocton County obviously identifies our home and is a constant reminder of whom we serve while the extended branches of the tree represent growth and reaching out to our neighbors and friends that reside outside our area. The sun shining brightly behind the tree keeps our mission of “Shining a Positive Light on Coshocton County” in full view at all times. The roots growing into Coshocton County remind us of how deeply we are planted in this community and provide us with a visual constant of why we exist – to serve the people of Coshocton County. The Coshocton County Beacon logo was designed by our graphics artist, Peggy Whited.

All women are invited to attend the No Ordinary Walk for No Ordinary Women (N.O.W.) on Saturday, May 10 in Roscoe Village. Mikki Nichols, manager at Timbuktu in Roscoe Village, is organizing this first walk and hopes it will become an annual event. The walk will begin t 9:00 a.m. at the stage in Roscoe. The walkers will each get a balloon at the first tunnel on the towpath and then will have a chance to release that balloon on the bridge. “As we let our balloons go we can make a commitment to whatever it is we want to do for ourselves such as quit smoking or loose weight,” explained Nichols. “Women typically give more than what we get and we tend to get involved in many other causes for other people and forget about ourselves. This is a chance for us to live in the now and do something for us.” Nichols says there will also be several booths set up on the Village street such as an antique dealer, jewelry designers, organic baby goods, hand-made wedding stationary, golf tips from Hilltop Golf Course, chocolate-dipped fruit and wine from The Warehouse Restaurant, and a fresh flower cart with last minute bouquets for mom. “There will be a photographer set up in the gazebo taking photos – so you can dress up and have photos taken with your friends or mother-daughter photos,” continued Nichols. “Miss Jennifer’s Elite Dance Force will be the entertainment and skin care classes will also be offered (by appointment) at Jillian’s Salon.” Special sales will also be taking place throughout the Village on May 10 as part of the N.O.W. festivities. Contact Mikki Nichols at Timbuktu for more information at (740) 291-8000.

Local man’s alter ego brings historic flair to Coshocton by Ginger Reiss Most folks around these parts know him as Jack time he wore it during the 1973 Canal Days festivities. Baumgardner’s repertoire has evolved to include Baumgardner, but local festival patrons and children Baumgardner added a bedroll and put a pot on his two other historical presentations that he offers to also know him as John Chapman… a.k.a. Johnny head for a hat. The pot, Baumgardner explained, was students and other groups. One is entitled Incredible Appleseed. Appleseed’s cooking and eating container when he was Maize and is the story of how the cultivation and use of Yes, he was a real historic figure and yes, he was a traveling. Reports were that Appleseed’s primary meal corn grew in early-American mid-Western pioneer life. bit… well, let’s say eccentric.

Legend says he never married or had a family. and story, except for the fact that Baumgardner’s fame has also been very active in Kiwanis, serving once as He never had a real job, either. Some might say he has spread far beyond Coshocton county. “I’ve been Lieutenant Governor of the civic club. Up until very never amounted to much during his 71 years, but we all over the state, and even into West Virginia and recently, Baumgardner also served as a city councilman have him to thank for all the apples, right?

He spent his life walking the creek his favorite audience. involved with local politics. banks, forests and pastures of the Midwest, a common visitor to many pioneer families, bringing apples harvested from trees he had planted from seed on prior visits. He traded what he could – usually apples or seeds - for food and lodging, but was just as happy sleeping under the stars on his bedroll, which he carried everywhere with him. “Pioneer life was hard and often lonely,” Baumgardner said. “These folks didn’t have too many visitors and were happy to have Johnny visit and bring them news of frontier happenings.” Baumgardner – also a living history tour guide at Roscoe Village for 18 years - is an expert on Johnny Appleseed. When asked why he wanted to bring Appleseed – the folk legend – into life in Coshocton, Baumgardner explained how it all started thirty-five years ago. Baumgarder, then a member of the Roscoe Village Singers, was looking for a way to become more involved in the festival and to bring in more historic folklore to the ensemble’s Canal Days show. Baumgardner knew the Johnny Appleseed legend, but decided to visit the library to see if he could find an illustration of what the folk hero might have looked like. The endeavor proved successful, and Baumgardner made his first costume out of an old burlap potato sack, with head and arm holes cut out of it. “I’ve always been thin anyway, so I just tied an old rope around my waist and underneath, Jack Baumgardner is pictured dressed in his full ‘Johnny Appleseed” garb.

Special Exhibit of American Indian Weavings at the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum About twenty contemporary works will also be exhibited. These works merely nod to the traditional pieces as they dance to new rhythms arising out of a different place and time. They do not have the gravitas of the traditional pieces, but they strut freedom, space, boldness and joy. Each of the seven featured artists will offer a unique interpretation of weaving. Artist Judy Dominic of Harrison, Ohio, creates sculpture from found materials—vines, limbs, and litter. Her pieces, which incorporate space in their design, tend to have minimal contact with the supporting surface. Some of her work suggests the lightness and mobility of a seed pod. In contrast, Gerry Fogarty’s art evokes tribal ceremony and protection. A mixed-media hanging entitled Necklace assimilates African textile motifs with the American Plains Indian breastplate form. Part of Fogarty’s Shield Series, this seven-foot high hanging juxtaposes beauty and menace. Other works by Fogarty, a Yellow Springs resident, will include Shields I, a mixed media quilt, and Quivers, a hanging sculpture. The exhibit will also feature tapestries by Katherine Uetz (Cincinnati) and Mary Zicafoose (Nebraska), fiber baskets by Phyllis Walla-Catania (Delaware) functional weavings by Deborah Yorde (Mt. Vernon). The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum has five galleries. Three display permanent exhibits: Historic Ohio, American Indian and Asian. The Golden Gallery currently features a cookie jar collection and furnishings from the Victorian era. The Ohio Arts Council helps fund this organization with state tax dollars to encourage economic

growth, educational excellence and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans.

The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum will present the special exhibit Weaving Traditions on May 10 through August 3, 2008. The framework for the show is derived from the museum’s American Indian collection. An array of 19thcentury Navajo blankets and basketry from Western tribes will be displayed. Complementing these historic pieces will be contemporary works that are either woven or incorporate weaving in their design. They include sculpture, hangings and functional fiber art and craft such as table runners and rugs. Weaving Traditions is sponsored by the Mary Taylor Family Fund. The American Indian works set the historical foundation for the show. Their presence—muscular, graceful and venerable—will ground viewers. The baskets draw one into an ancient place where a woman could express beauty and identity using fibers such as sumac, grass, willow and devil’s claw. Viewers will find that their designs, drawn from nature, appeal to our modern taste for simplicity and abstraction. Archaeologists have determined that the making of baskets predated even the use of pottery. They were made for such diverse purposes as carrying (anything from water to infants), cooking, storing, winnowing and wearing. What began as a necessity evolved into a work of art, which by the turn of the 20th century, was being exported all over the world. The Navajo blanket, like its basket counterpart, became the desire and envy of worldwide collectors by the 19th century. Navajo probably learned to weave from the Pueblo Indians who had been weaving cotton since about 800 AD.

ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT UPDATE

T.J. JUSTICE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, COSHOCTON PORT AUTHORITY I am delighted to provide an economic development report for the first edition of The Coshocton County Beacon. This is an exciting time for Coshocton County with Altra Biofuels beginning production at the Coshocton Ethanol plant in Franklin Township. Production began about a month ago and has been running at about 75% capacity but has already operated at 100% capacity during its

T.J. Justice Executive director, coshocton port authority

launch. I have been on site twice since production began and it is quite an operation to see corn coming in by the truckload with carriers lined up waiting to be filled up with ethanol to head out. I’m also pleased to report that more than 90% of its employees have been hired locally and are meeting the company’s needs. I’m also pleased to report that a small distribution company from Newcomerstown has relocated to the West Lafayette area. Biolet distributes imported household products through out the country and is excited to be located in Coshocton County. Biolet is co-existing with Waste Parchment near the intersection of U.S. 36 and Ohio 93 in Lafayette Township. Waste Parchment is a company that maintains its primary operations in Millersburg but used proceeds from the port authority’s local revolving loan fund to build a warehouse facility near West Lafayette which is now being shared by Biolet. This is the beauty of the revolving loan fund where we sometimes see unanticipated benefits from local investments. The port authority continues to promote a 200+ acre site

owned by the Shurtz family along Johnson Road in West Lafayette and Lafayette Township. A variance has been obtained allowing for access to be gained from Coshocton County Road 16 to the site. A cost estimate has been obtained from the Coshocton County Engineer’s Office but funding is not imminent with a “bird in hand.” The port and the Ohio Department of Development views this as an ideal site in Eastern Ohio due to its flatness, infrastructure already in place, and proximity to I-77/U.S. 36. Other properties continue to be promoted and explored including the former General Electric industrial site on South Second Street in Coshocton. I hope to put the perceptions and realities to rest with a third party feasibility study to be conducted by an environmental consultant this summer or fall. I’m presently raising funds to conduct the $20,000 study to advise the port on which parcels of the property have been satisfactorily remediated and ready for reindustrialization. A goal of the port’s is to acquire portions of the site for development. The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency agrees with this strategy and has approved a Request For Proposals to conduct the study pending the arrangement of financing which is in process. Amidst these activities, the port authority has graduated to a point where it is aggressively marketing Coshocton County. The port authority now has a presence on a national site locators website located at www.sitelocationpartnership.com under its “hot spot” links. My staff is also making follow-up calls, along with the Knox County Area Development Foundation, to more than 350 food processing and beverage companies which received three different “need water?” marketing pieces. This is an ongoing and ever changing effort to attract new jobs to our community while maintaining the ones we already have. I hope you thank those employers who are here and help me to look polished when potential investors visit our community. Speak highly of our community when approached by a stranger - it may, and could always be, someone thinking about bringing a business here. I encourage you to visit our always changing website which promotes Coshocton County to the rest of the world visiting us online - the address is www. coshoctonportauthority.com. I welcome your feedback and comments.

Coshocton County Memorial Hospital Believes in Giving Back to Community Beacon article by Mark Fortune Those in attendance at the annual meeting of the Coshocton County Memorial Hospital heard Mr. Greg Nowak, Administrator and CEO, present facts and figures from the year 2007. And while the numbers represented the current story of our community at large, his comments also provided a glimpse into the more human side of the hospital story. As Mr. Nowak stated, “We are here to serve the Coshocton County community”, and serve they do. Some examples of that giving include; Charity care of over $1.3 million in 2007, almost $5 million in uncompensated care, and service to the community at just over $1 million dollars and significant losses in Medicare and Medicaid. Although the hospital recorded a loss in 2007 of a little over $800,000, in total the hospital gave back to our community over $15 million in services and contributions. Mr. Nowak stated that the Medicare and Medicaid losses are common among hospitals in the country today. More challenging to our local hospital is physician recruitment and staffing, due to our rural setting. This is also a trend that less than 100 bed hospitals are experiencing around the nation due to insurance and doctors that want to establish an office-

only practice. The hospital is the county’s largest employer, with 561 employees currently on staff. In 2007, CCMH performed over 2200 surgeries with 2600 admissions. Medical Services of Coshocton, a sister company of the hospital, employs 75 and experienced 8,500 Urgent Care visits in 2007. Medical Services of Coshocton was originally started to recruit physicians because, at the time, hospitals were not allowed to directly recruit physicians. One of the more significant events to occur at the hospital occurred in late 2007 when the hospital signed with Radiology Associates of Southeast Ohio. This large group also serves Genesis Health Systems in Zanesville and Southeastern Regional Medical Center in Cambridge. This group of 8 radiologists has brought fresh ideas and innovative services to our local hospital. This year, watch for more private rooms as well as improvements at the Extended Care Facility. Mr. Nowak also stated that it is the “employees and our many volunteer organizations that keep the hospital vibrant and provide donations that allow for the purchase of needed technology. It is this innovation

that we are known for at our hospital”. One of the many critical need items purchased in 2007 was a defibrillator unit for the Operating Room that a gift of $5,000 came from the Heart of Gold organization. The Pink Ladies provided gifts to the hospital in the amount of $18,500 and they are 50 active members strong and worked 9,370 hours in 2007. Other volunteer groups include T.E.A.M. (Together Everyone Achieves More) and Teen. The Board of Trustees and the Development Council members are also volunteers. Our Opinion Our area is blessed to have a hospital of this caliber with a dedicated staff of volunteers, paid staff, administrators, physicians and nurses. The addition of innovative technology that allows a patient to travel locally versus going to Zanesville or Columbus with the current price of gasoline is something not to take for granted.

Olsen to Appear in Concert Appearing in concert at The Presbyterian Church

All Things Are Possible By Pastor Andy Loos - Liberty Church What do I do now? I have exhausted every option. Stress, overwhelming and tension has become my houseguest. I am standing at the crossroad forced to travel a path less than desirable. Have you ever felt like life itself has turned against you, and hope is a distant memory? Have you ever faced an impossible situation? Maybe you have lost your job and are facing financial difficulty. Maybe the doctor told you or someone you love, that disease has attacked your body and there is nothing medicine can do for you. You might have a child or spouse that is making horrific choices and you feel like a bystander watching your family unravel and fall to pieces. Life is full of hills and valleys. Sometimes you are on top of the world and life couldn’t be better. Other times you are at your lowest state and feel like crawling in a hole and rotting away. The truth is that the place you find yourself, right now, is subject to change. It is only temporary. I want to remind you that you are not alone. You are not the first to have these feelings that you are having or the thoughts that are bombarding your mind. Throughout history we read about men, women, and

children who face life altering situations and mind boggling decisions, and come out of their valley victorious. In fact those that have received Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior have promised victory in every situation. Remember that you are not alone. Even in the darkest valley of life, you can stand in confidence knowing that Jehovah God will never leave you nor forsake you. Psalms 34:19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all. Liberty Church 313 Main St. Coshocton, OH 43812 (740) 623-8017

Each issue we hope to have an article on something of historical interest for our readers. For our debut issue I must gratefully acknowledge Cheryl Triplitt Wantuck, who provided us with a little booklet called “Coshocton County Turtle Derby”. This event was held at the Fair ground Ball Diamond on September 11, 1952. It was sponsored by the Coshocton Junior Chamber of Commerce and the program is filled with advertising sponsors that read like postcards from a decade that represented a strong manufacturing and vibrancy of business. While many of the business that have advertising in this program are gone today, there are several that are still thriving, albeit through another name and many that exist in a change of ownership. For example, page four of the program has James B. Clow and Sons and a few pages further in list Carton’s Shoes and The Jones Metal Products Company. How many recall Mohr’s (Sunnybrook) Truck Stop and Tumblin’s Cafe at Main and Third Streets in Coshocton. And, oh yes, there is Fortune’s Shoe Repair Drive In Shoe Service with the address listed as “Rear Webb Studio at 518 Main Street”.

imagine that brings back nostalgic memories for some of our older Coshoctonians. There are many more sponsors in the program that evoke fond memories of a bygone era but not really much mentioned about the Turtle Races themselves. Except, wait a minute, here are a few names that you may recognize; Cheryl Triplitt racing “Prescription” sponsored of course, by Triplitt’s Drug, and Mervin Baumgardner racing (is that really what you call it with turtles?”) Hoppy, sponsored by O’Neil’s. Jerry Sycks from Sycks Bakery had a turtle aptly named Cup Cake. Coshocton’s current city Service Director, Jerry Stenner, was racing “Treasure Chest” sponsored by The Style Center. Oh, and if you hadn’t guessed this part about the turtle race, yes, we are still waiting on the results! If you have an interesting bit of history that you would like to share with the people of Coshocton County, please visit our office at 226 Main Street in Towne Centre, Coshocton (the former Workman’s Restaurant) fax it to 740-623-9937, email to: mark@coshoctoncountybeacon.com or mail it to: The Coshocton County Beacon, 226 Main Street, Coshocton, Ohio 43812.

“4-H Trap Shooting Helps Local Member in Youth Turkey Hunt” My name is Kayla Cowdery, I’m 13 years old and have lived on a farm for three years. I have been a member of the Coshocton County 4-H Golden Spurs Club for six years. I’m active with horses, archery, and shotgun I and II, which includes trapshooting. In addition to these projects, I am taking a swine this year also. This spring I have been invited to a guided Turkey Hunt. Due to this upcoming hunt, I was prompted to go Turkey hunting this past weekend. I contacted a friend, Mic Williams of “Willliam Bros. Construction” who is an avid Turkey hunter, to assist me on my first hunt. He explained things to me about the turkey and showed me the turkey calls, decoys, etc. On Saturday, April 19th (first day of Youth Turkey season), we decided to go hunting around 3:00 p.m. on my farm. By 4:30 p.m. I had shot my first turkey ever, a 21lb 2oz. tom with a nine-inch beard. I wsa so excited that I had to concentrate on what to do next, but with the help of Mic beside me, it was a great experience. My many thanks goes out to Mic Williams and 4-H Shotgun Instructors for encouraging me. Also thank you to my Mom and Dad for letting me have this wonderful experience.
