The new time capsule is buried five feet underground and is actually a burial vault donated by Given Dawson Funeral Home. The vault contains various family photos, mementos, recordings, DVD’s and more. Pictures of the ceremony were printed off and placed in the vault to commemorate the event.

Time capsule vault to be unearthed in 2061

(including a DVD player) and more was buried at the same site as the 1961 time capsule that was unearthed last August as part of Coshocton County’s bicentennial celebration. Bee Richard Lehner, who chaired the time capsule committee, said, “Around the first of March we put everything out on the tables and got things organized by farm, school, organizations, government, business, churches, all of that is organized. Everything has been put in plastic zip-loc bags and some bags I bought that are archival – we don’t know yet for sure – everything is sealed in plastic bags, those are in plastic boxes and have been placed in the vault. The vault has a layer of charcoal on the bottom and there is plastic on top of the charcoal so the boxes won’t be in contact with it.” “It’s a good feeling to be done with this project but it’s been fun, it’s been wonderful.” Lehner said, when asked what she might say to those that will open the vault in 2061, “I would say, be prepared for all kinds of memorabilia, you have everything from papers to toys, medals, war medals, we have videos, DVD’s, we have a DVD player – hopefully they can plug it into a socket and listen to the DVD’s. I think they’re just going to have a really fun time. And I hope everybody comes out at that time to see what might be in there for them. Like your children and your grandchildren.”

Lehner said, “Many, many thanks to all those who have been involved. There have been a lot more people behind the scenes than have been on the scene helping with this project.” Helping Lehner on the time capsule committee were Paul Golden and Kathy Thompson, who she said, “Were invaluable and I am so thankful for their help.” Speaking at the event were Rick Merrell, Paul Golden, Jerry Stenner on behalf of Coshocton City Mayor Steve Mercer, Dane Shryock for the Board of Commissioners and Bee Richard Lehner. Of special significance at the ceremony was Lister Endsley placing the first plastic bin of memorabilia and history into the vault. Endsley and his wife Lola were present when the 1961 time capsule went into the ground, and were special guests when that same time capsule was unearthed last August for the bicentennial. For those that are wondering, a celebration of 250 years is called a “Sestercentennial”. MARK@COSHOCTONCOUNTYBEACON.COM

Our Dad and PaPaw 4/30/25 – 5/1/11 The first year has come and gone, Since the day God called you “home.” You were so tired those last few months of life, And were ready to be reunited with your dear wife. You are now in heaven with Jesus, family and friends; The joys and rewards of it all has no end. We hold you close in thought and memory, Our love for you is for now into eternity. Keep watch over us from heaven above, Thank you so much for your precious love. Dad and PaPaw: We love and miss you every day, Your children: Rachel, Ann and Bill Grandchildren and Great-grandchildren

Victims’ rights advocates came together April 24, at Grace United Methodist Church to recognize Victims’ Rights Week with a luncheon that included guest speakers and the presentation of certificates of appreciation. “Today is a chance for us to rededicate ourselves to the vision that one day all future crime victims will have the respect and support they need to recover from crime,” said Emily McBurney, co-organizer and victims’ rights advocate for the Coshocton County Prosecutor’s Office. Attendees enjoyed lunch and listened to a presentation by Dr. Jeffrey Barrows, the founder of Gracehaven, a shelter in Ohio for teen victims of sex trafficking. He was replacing Theresa Flores, who had to cancel her presentation of what it was like to be involved in trafficking and slavery while living in an upper-middle class suburb of Detroit, Mich. “Most people think it’s all overseas in places like Cambodia and Thailand, but it happens right here in Ohio,” Barrows said. Studies show that there are at least 100,000 youth being trafficked in the United States and around 1,000 in Ohio.

“That 100,000 is our best estimate and that may be low,” Barrows said. A lot of girls who become involved in sex trafficking are runaways who come from abusive homes. Girls dealing with self esteem issues also have been pulled into the business by men who pretend to be their boyfriend and build them up. Melissa Dickerson, who manages the Deb shop at the mall in Zanesville, also talked about self esteem and depression issues. “I had a normal childhood,” she said. “I had loving parents and a big family, but even as a small child I always felt a void and sadness. I ignored it and the older I got the worse it got.” Dickerson thought starting a family would help fill the void, but after getting married and having a child she eventually got divorced. “I thought I would go out and enjoy being single, but I went to the wrong places,” she said. “I started drinking and partying, but the depression was still there.” She had a second child with someone she met while running the bars and ended up in what she called a “reckless and troubled relationship.” “There was verbal, physical and sexual abuse, but I found cocaine numbed it,” Dickerson said. “The cops would be called for domestic abuse, but they’d leave and we’d make up. Eventually I lost my family, good friends and my kids.” Staying sober was a struggle for her. “I’d get sober, but I didn’t know how to hold on to it or keep it,” she said. “I always went back.”



Dickerson eventually got in trouble with the law and feels incarceration is the only thing that saved her. “Women of Witness came in and they talked to us about the love of Jesus,” she said. “At this point I had hit rock bottom. I said the prayer of salvation and my life transformed. The void was filled and I kept my sobriety.” Dickerson learned who she could rely on after she spoke with Women of Witness. “God’s grace can transform anyone,” she said. After Dickerson spoke, the 2012 Certificates of Appreciation for Outstanding Service for Crime Victims were presented to Christopher McCabe, Municipal Court Probation Officer; Lt. Bill Kobel, Coshocton County Sheriff’s Office; Shelley McCarty, Health Service of Coshocton County/Family Care Counseling Centers; and Christi Olinger, coordinating officer for Toys For Tots. Cathy Burns also accepted a Lifetime Achievement Award in memory of her husband the late Judge David W. Burns. “I didn’t think I’d be emotional, but I am,” she said. “He really did care about people and there is so much more that he wanted to do. It’s an honor that they did this.” JOSIE@COSHOCTONCOUNTYBEACON.COM

entertainment in Coshocton County. We hope to raise the remaining $5,000 through the annual fund appeal, which is underway,” said Marion Sutton, Fundraising Chairman. Andre Servais, an Amphitheater board member, took charge of developing a lighting scheme for the Amphitheater’s 50’x70’ stage which was completed last spring. Working with lighting specialist Eric Johnson of 3rd Day Technology in South Vienna, he began by developing a list of essential equipment for this project. The list includes two 22 foot trusses to be constructed and installed on either side of the stage to support all of the light needed to work “lighting magic.” Lights are attached to the trusses, or to bars hung from the trusses. These lights are called PARs (parabolic aluminized reflector lights). PAR-64’s will provide color and will be used to throw color washes over large areas. Two moving headlights, which can rotate 360 degrees, will create changing patterns and color, focus in and out, provide theatrical expression, and can be programmed for scene changes. A lighting dimmer and a light controller, the “brains” of the system, complete the list. Servais was happy to take on the project. He has studied theatrical lighting at Muskingum University, where he received a BA in business. And he literally “grew up” with The Living Word, the outdoor drama in Cambridge. Besides spending four years a technical director for that production, he also technically directed musicals and concerts for the same stage. “With the new lighting capability, look for performances to start later in the evening this year, around 8 p.m.,” Servais commented. Moving performance times to 8 p.m. will be better for the performers, no more of the setting sun in their eyes, and provide entertainment for the audience in the way of light features before, during and after the show. For information, contact Sutton, at, 545-6381 (day) or 623-0768 (evening). Visit the Coshocton Airport Amphitheater online at www.

May 4th, 1952 On a mining property near Roscoe, coal was being extracted from the ground using an auger type boring device, the McCarthy rock drill. It was a recent innovation to the coal mining industry and was being used for the first time in Coshocton County by Cleve Costly, a veteran coal producer from West Virginia. After 60 feet of earth was removed from the Roscoe site, the coal was exposed and the drilling began. As the machine drilled, a spiraling drill carried the coal back to the face of the operation where it was lifted onto a conveyer belt and taken to a truck or stockpile. It took three men to operate the drill.


May 3rd, 1972 Started a new project and need some create ideas or maybe you want to begin an artsy project but don’t know where to start. Roscoe Village’s newest store, Village Artworks, had everything you could need including supplies for projects such as needlework, crewel, decoupage, and paints in oils, acrylics, and folk art. Mrs. Nelson, the owner of the store, also offered popular craft items such as slabs of aged barn siding, nail kegs, and wanted posters. She had studied for five years in commercial art school and worked as a freelance artist in Atlanta, Chicago, and New York. Many of the shop signs in Roscoe Village featured her artwork.

May 8th, 1982 Most high school students don’t start their summer vacation by visiting a foreign country, but that was not the case for Ridgewood High School sophomore, Lisa Simmons. She was one of the 14 students from Ridgewood High School who would be spending eight days in Mexico. The students would travel to Mexico City, Taxcco de Alvcon, and Acapulco beginning on June 9 as part of an “in depth” Spanish lesson. All students registered to go took Spanish in high school and they were looking forward to receiving a first-hand knowledge of the country, its culture, and language.

Upcoming Events

On Sunday, May 6, Dr. Paul Barte will portray J. S. Bach and play the organ at the Coshocton Presbyterian Church. The Afternoon with J. S. Bach Organ Recital begins at 3 p.m. and is free to attend. The concert is part of the Coshocton Dogwood Festival - A weeklong community celebration of visual and performing arts. Dr. Paul Barte, organ professor at Ohio University, dressed as Bach, will share this composer’s story and his music. The Taylor and Boody tracker organ in the sanctuary of the Presbyterian Church is the type of instrument which Bach would have played in his day. So one may actually feel transported back to the time of Bach. Dr. Barte is the University Organist at Ohio University and also teaches organ, harpsichord, keyboard literature, and music history there. A native of Minnesota, he earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Minnesota, his master’s degree from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and his doctor’s degree from the Eastman School of Music. Dr. Barte has performed in Germany and the United States, having recently played the Mormon Tabernacle Organ. He has presented recitals and workshops at regional and national conventions of the American Guild of Organists and the Music Teacher’s National Association. Most of the pieces that Dr. Barte will play were written by J. S. Bach including Toccata in D Minor (BWV 565); Erhalt uns Herr, bei deinem Wort (BWV 1103); Jesu meine Freude (BWV 1105); Prelude and Fugue in F Major (BWV 556); Nun komm der Heiden Heiland (BWV 659); Vivaldi: Concerto in A minor–1st movement (BWV 593); O Mensch, bewein’ dein Sünde gross (BWV 622); Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme (BWV 645); and Prelude and Fugue in B Minor (BWV 544).

BPW raises equal pay awareness Coshocton Community Children’s Choir celebrates 25th season

DINNER Coshocton BPW President Kim Gress, Keynote Speaker Kathy Groob and Co-Chair Equal Pay Day Liz Herrell stop for a picture during the Equal Pay Day dinner, which was held April 17. Groob is the author of “Pink Politics” which explains how women running for office are treated differently than men, including more focus on appearance, hair, make-up, dress, family lifestyle, and background. Equal Pay Day is always on a Tuesday to represent how fair into the work week women have to work in order to earn what men earn for equal work. Women who work full time earn 77 cents for every dollar a man earns for performing the same job. PHOTO CONTRIBUTED TO THE BEACON

Well, as Father Time has a tendency to do, it is once again time for the 2012 season of the Fresno Farmers’ Market. Opening day is from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, May 5. The past winter wasn’t as bad as we had anticipated and this spring has proved to be magnificent. Your vendors both old and new are ready and eager to get this season under way. We are so anxious to see our old friends, as well as make new acquaintances. Many familiar faces, like: Verna, Mike, Shelia, Mark, Kathy, Bill and Lydia and yours truly have been baking, planting and crafting for a great new beginning. With the early warm weather, gardens are plowed and off to a quick start, we’ve enjoyed fresh spinach twice already! So, make sure to plan on attending opening day on May 5 to get your first tastes of spring, like: Spinach, rhubarb, spring lettuce and tender radishes. And of course Verna and Shelia will curb our sweet tooth with wonderful homemade baked goods, like: Angel food cake, fresh donuts, pies, cakes and cookies! Mike Bailey just enquired 125 new laying hens, so there should be fresh brown eggs by the plenty. There are just so many quality products made or grown by caring area residents, that you need to make the drive out to Fresno to enjoy all that the Market has to offer. We welcome and encourage anyone that is interested in joining us at the Fresno Farmers’ Market this year, all items are accepted, but homemade and local home grown items are preferred. There is no vendor set up fee, we operate on a “by donation” good faith offerings only. All monies donated make their way back into the Fresno community! So what do you have to lose? A morning spent with new friends, fellowshipping, drinking coffee and eating donuts? I can think of worse ways to spend a Saturday morning! Here is an easy recipe to enjoy some of that fresh spring rhubarb from the queen of “good things” herself, Martha Stewart: Rhubarb Chutney - serve as a condiment alongside roast pork or beef. 1/2 red onion thinly sliced 1/4 cup golden raisins 1 tsp. grated ginger zest of 1 orange 1/2 cup white wine 1/4 cup white wine vinegar 1 cup brown sugar 1 lb. trimmed rhubarb cut into 6 in. lengths 2 celery cut into 6 in. lengths Combine onion, raisins, ginger, zest, wine, vinegar and sugar in sauce pan, bring to simmer over med. heat. Add rhubarb and celery cover; reduce heat and simmer until rhubarb is tender but not falling apart. Remove rhubarb and set aside, continue to simmer until celery is tender. Transfer to a bowl and return rhubarb to mixture, let cool and chill until ready to use. Will keep in refrigerator for several days.

Barbara Moody sang two special songs and “The Edge” was played as an interlude. The song was written by Dan Mitchell for the Coshocton event. On behalf of the Coshocton Cancer Support Group, Jackie Mason presented the Coshocton County Relay for Life with a $1,100 donation – money that has been raised from various fundraisers the group held over the past year.

It’s wonderful to see the people from year to year, and it’s wonderful to meet new ones.” I’ve seen quite a few new ones here this year that have introduced themselves that are amazed at what we can do. This is a very good turnout, this is wonderful, the Elks has been wonderful, Darla in the kitchen, she has put the whole meal together pretty much herself today. We’re having ham, baked potato, vegetable medley, and I put edible flowers on the plates.

People can help each other out. This lets people reach out to each other and know that someone is willing to help.”

Linda Ames did her own wedding in a Alice and Jim Radabaugh announce Alice’s new business Alice’s Air Pets, which is a mobile Harley-Davidson theme.

What started as a hobby about 15 years ago for Linda Ames is now an event planning business. “I enjoy planning and trying to help people put their personality into it (the event) and not do the same old thing that everyone else does,” she said. Ames and her staff at Lifetime Events will decorate, setup for your events, make sure everything goes smooth and then clean it all up for you. “The only thing people have to worry about is showing up and having a good time,” she said. Friends and family would come to Ames for help with their weddings, birthdays, reunions, graduations, Christmas parties and decorating for just about any major milestone that needed a celebration. The decision to go public was easy. “I love what I do and I love it when a person gets the party that they envisioned,” Ames said. “I have a large selection of vases, colors and different center piece styles and ideas. My wedding was a Harley-Davidson theme and wasn’t what most would think. It was at the River Grill and the owner told me it looked really eloquent and nice. You can make anything eloquent and fun.” She also does her best to work with any budget and has done projects at Lake Park Pavilion, the Moose, outdoors and churches. “I feel that people should get something

In counties across Ohio, county real estate employees are in the field for the annual inspection of new and remodeled structures. This is also occurring in Coshocton County.

Fortress & PowerBrace County appraisers, Wesley Tubbs and Jarrod Tipton will be out visiting properties and adding the value of new and remodeled buildings to DIRT CRAWL SPACE? CleanSpace the county’s tax roll. Forms to report the new construction were included with the mailing of the first half tax bills.

Waterproofing County’s tax rolls up-to-date between revaluations, all properties with new FREE ESTIMATES! or remodeled structures are inspected by our staff each year. What many people don’t realize is the law instructs the County Auditor to charge the Foundation Repair or Replacement property owner a penalty if the owner fails to report a new structure to our office within the first 60 days of beginning its construction. For unreported new construction, a penalty will be added to the bill equal to 50 percent of the amount of taxes that would have been charged on the building. The penalty period runs from the construction’s starting day through the date Canton/Greater when our appraisers discover the structure” (Ohio Revised Code 5713.17). West Virginia To avoid having the penalty added to your tax bill, notifying the Auditor’s Office of a new structure only takes a brief telephone call (622-1243).

Shrock their property,” Coshocton County Auditor Christine Sycks said. “We are able to give partial year value deductions for buildings that were either removed by the owner, or destroyed or damaged due to flood, fire, wind, or other disasters. This can often mean a tax savings for the owner.” To receive a destroyed or damaged SIDING building form—a DTE Form 26—either call the County Auditor’s Office (622-1243) or stop in and ask for the form.

Churches and they will participate in the National Women Build in May. They will be framing a home on May 12 at 7th Street Rear in West Lafayette. Lowe’s is an underwriter of Habitat’s Women Build program and has committed more than $1.3 million to National Women Build Week in support of 275 participating affiliates. National Women Build Week is one of the major initiatives supported through their five-year, $20 million pledge to Habitat. It is hoped that more women will volunteer in future Habitat projects once they have been through the “how to” clinics provided by Lowes’s Home Centers. There are many ways women can volunteer, even if they haven’t had the Lowe’s training. Assistance is always needed for painting, landscaping and a variety of tasks that don’t require special training. Anyone wishing to volunteer can register by calling 623-2764 or by going to the Habitat Site and click on the Volunteer Up link.

Not just with the upcoming Spring Tour of Homes but anytime you, the buyer, looks at a home consider the following suggestions: Sellers should also consider the following when their home is shown. 1. Always use the services of a real estate agent, we are not professional contractors, but we have experience in what to be wary of. 2. The more eyes looking - the better. Once you have considered a possible home, take a friend or family member with you during a second look. 3. Most buyers today are using a government loan. Most of these loans require: - handrails anywhere there are more than three steps - GFI outlets anywhere there is a water source within six feet - double pane windows or single pane windows that have storm windows and screens, - no holes in any walls, - insulation, if possible check the attic for at least 8 inches and the basement in between the outer walls and the ceiling, - there can be NO flaking paint anywhere on the house or outbuildings. 4. Check the floors for solidity. They should not bounce! Just about any old house will have floors that will be slightly off level. If it’s noticeable,

be wary! 5. Check the walls. Minor age cracks in older homes are natural. If they are large cracks, again be wary! 6. Look for any stains on ceilings and walls, especially in closets and around chimneys. 7. Look for breaker boxes and newer (usually white) wiring. 8. The furnace should be a high efficiency furnace where the intake / out-take pipes go out the side of the house. 9. Look at all of the external walls for bowing, cracks, moisture and mold / mildew. If a wall is hidden by the owners stuff, and you are interested in this house, ask that the stuff be pulled out for your second inspection. 10. Check for loose or missing roof shingles. 11. Check for loose or missing siding. 12. Check the foundation for cracks. 13. And the best suggestion, if in doubt, get a home inspection. Your real estate agent should have a list of home inspectors. 14. Be sure to look around inside and out to be sure this big life investment is what you want. 15. Don’t jump on the first house you look at unless you know for sure it fits all of your needs, now and for the future! Good luck in your home search!

Auer Ace Hardware in Coshocton has just opened a new C3 Certified ChipKey Center® in the key department. The hardware store is now a destination to get additional high security automotive keys for your car or truck. Customers can get their automotive ChipKeys (transponder keys) programmed and cut by trained and certified technicians. The store offers “While You Wait Service,” a competitive price, and the convenience of being open seven days a week to assist customers. ChipKeys are high-security keys that look just like regular car keys, except there is a computer chip embedded in the head of the key. The computer chip holds a code like a password. The computer in your vehicle reads the password, and if it is correct, the vehicle will start. Otherwise, the vehicle will be inoperable. Currently, there are more than 120 million cars and trucks on the road using ChipKeys. Last year, more than 11 million vehicles, or 90% of all cars and trucks manufactured, use high security ChipKeys. Losing the last ChipKey for your car can be very costly and time consuming if your vehicle’s computer needs to be re-programmed and new keys made by the dealer. A new ChipKey at Auer ACE will cost less than the tow to the dealership!

Hardee’s to add Mexican food BY JOSIE McCORMICK

Hardee’s will spice up its menu this month with the opening of Red Burrito. “It’s a step between Taco Bell and a Mexican restaurant,” said Leslie Young, district manager for the local Hardee’s. “The combos are a little classier and we have homemade salsa.” Red Burrito and Hardee’s are owned by the same company. “The Hardee’s menu board will move down and we will add one for Red Burrito,” Young said. “You will come to the same line, counter and cash register.” The Hardee’s in Mount Vernon was the first franchise in Ohio to roll out Red Burrito. “I think of any excuse I can to get to go there (for the food),” said Pam Latham, general manager at the Coshocton Hardee’s. Red Burrito will open Wednesday, May 9, but customers can try free samples from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 5, which also happens to be Cinco de Mayo, a day to celebrate Mexican heritage and pride. “It’s really good food and it’s new and exciting,” Young said. “The prices also are pretty low.” JOSIE@COSHOCTONCOUNTYBEACON.COM

CHECK PRESENTATION Jennifer Croft, left, explains why she and her husband Kyle selected Coshocton County 4-H to receive the $2,500 they won from a contest sponsored by the Monsanto Fund. “4-H shaped my life and Kyle’s,” Jennifer said. “The youth are our tomorrow and there is not a better place I can think for this money to go.” Each winner of the contest was allowed to select a nonprofit to receive a donation. “We can do a lot with this,” said Jenny Cherry, 4-H Youth Educator. “We will spread it out and use it to benefit a lot of youth not just a few.” The purpose of the Monsanto contest is to show the vital rolls farmers play in their communities. Pictured from left are Jennifer, Cherry and Kyle. Also on hand for the event were Jeff Phillips from Monsanto and Dave Bruns from Agland. Phillips presented the check at the start of the Coshocton County 2012 4-H Kick-Off, which was held April 19, at Ridgewood High School. BEACON PHOTO BY JOSIE McCORMICK

MAY 2, 2012


Board of Trustee members and community members heard Coshocton Hospital CEO Robert Miller share the financial performance of the hospital, challenges and an update on goals at the annual meeting held Thursday, April 26 at the hospital. Following a luncheon served by the hospital dietary department, Miller gave a 2011 year in review to the audience. Miller reported that the hospital is using patient surveys to measure patient satisfaction, with Press Ganey, a company that is used by over 1,700 hospitals. Overall, Miller said that the results of the surveys have been positive – but the numbers need improvement, particularly with recommending the hospital to family and friends. “This business is getting very tough; keeping a hospital in Coshocton County is not getting any easier. We need all of your support to be able to support the needs of our community,” said Miller. “Using the 340B drug purchasing program has saved the hospital $600,000. $64,000 has been collected through a community appeal to totally remodel the second floor.” Miller said that last year the hospital had seven primary goals that they worked under and there were five major goals for 2011. The hospital set up a new patient customer satisfaction survey, which is mandated by Medicare. Previously, these reports were not coming on a timely basis. These reports are required by Congress and Miller said that using a new company (Press Ganey) results in getting the results 45 days after the quarter ends, which allows the hospital to make adjustments more quickly.

Trending data in 25 categories shows the hospital that in 24 of 25 questions, the hospital has shown improvement in the past three quarters. “The area that we rank the lowest in is your overall impression of the hospital and would you recommend your hospital to your family and friends,” said Miller, “Which is disappointing. We rank at 50 percent in that category. We’re doing well in other categories, there’s a disconnect somewhere and we’re trying to fix it internally. We need your help with this. Why is this so important? Starting in October, we’ll be taking 2 percent out of our Medicare payments and putting it on hold. It will only be given back to us if those numbers are above national standards or we show improvements. Medicare is 55 percent of our business, shared Miller, “That is a large chunk of our operating expenses that will have to be cut if that revenue does not come through.” “Our community has to start taking pride in our hospital,” said Miller. “Our goal is to make sure we take care of what we can take care of right here, stabilize you if it is something we can’t take care and get you where you can have care. This is an area that is very important to us.” The hospital has launched a new website, located at, and is receiving more than 5,800 hits per month. Other improvements include emergency entrance renovations, patient area remodeling projects, QuickCare Service and new electronic medical record technology. The hospital continues to focus on attracting new doctors to the area with two doctors tentatively slated to begin in August. The hospital had a net loss from operations

cost of Medicare, Medicaid and other write-offs totaling $59,362,746, with total write-offs at $66,245,375. Miller said that the hospital has lost money in each of the past three years, and that the hospital writes off more than 50 percent of what they charge. Improvements made in 2011 also included; the addition of Telestroke, through a collaborative effort with the Ohio State Medical Center; “The first eight patients we tracked through our system five of those patients were actually not having a stroke and were able to be treated here and not have to be transported to Ohio State. Before this program, most likely, seven or eight of those patients would have been automatically transferred to Columbus or Cleveland or somewhere else.” “We’ve expanded our orthopedic services. We have made an agreement with Orthopedic Services of Zanesville. Their eight doctor group is actually renting space from us and seeing patients one or two days a week,” said Miller. “We moved one of our family practice doctors out to Warsaw to meet the needs of that community. We’ve hired a new speech therapist which helps expand our services and quality of care. We consolidated our financial business annex this past year. We used the old Johnson warehouse building and converted it to a very modern business office – combining all of our financial services in one spot. We also did a major 1.3 million overhaul of our HVAC systems, including a retrofit of every light in our facility. We changed out a boiler that was 20 years old – now using three boilers. That has saved us about $230,000 in energy costs alone. It will pay back in less than five years.” The hospital received an award from Amerinet for innovations and upgrades in diagnostic x-ray areas. Miller said, “Training, improvements and a focus on patient satisfaction will continue at the hospital so that Coshocton Hospital can meet the needs of our community.” Coshocton Hospital will be hosting the Coshocton County Chamber of Commerce business after hours on Thursday, May 3, from 5 to 6:30 p.m. in the Grand Central Station Meeting Room.

The day started with registration at the courtsquare. Sections were assigned to volunteers and bags and safety vests were provided. The first 100 participants received a free t-shirt thanks to the sponsorships of SanCasT and CFLP Solid Waste District. There also were bottles of water and pastries provided by Coshocton County Hospital. Lake Park also had a cleanup day scheduled. “People who do this take ownership over the town,” said Lyn Mizer, executive director of United Way of Coshocton County, which organized the event. “I also admire parents that participate with their kids.
