Gospel Meeting Speaker:

David Flatt from Akron, Ohio

The Gospel is God’s power for salvation (Romans 1:16). David Flatt will preach God’s gospel. Come and bring your friends and relatives and study with us with your Bible in hand. God’s trutch contained in the Bible has never feared investigation. It is our responsibility to know God’s will and live faithful to it. We will all stand in judgment some day and give account of the deeds done in this life (2 Corinthians 5:10). Are you ready? Are you willing to study? Then come and worship and study with us during this gospel meeting week.

the last three year’s Anniversary sales. When asked what he believes makes Keim’s sales successful, Bill Keim, President and owner of the company said, “A lot of it is the atmosphere here at Keim Lumber and the store with all this extra space, people can shop without feeling crowded. People like to go shopping. Even if they aren’t going to spend money, they enjoy being inside where they can browse, feel comfortable and enjoy their time. They may not spend much, but many people, spending a little, adds up to a big amount. I think that’s a major thing. Another factor is our people with smiling faces and giving them good service, there is just a bunch of little things there that I think help. The economy is coming back I think slowly.” Prize winners during Keim Lumber’s Centennial sale were as follows: $10,000 gift card - David Yoder of Baltic, 5,000 gift card Ivan Swartzentruber of Sugarcreek, $2,000 gift card - Mary Esther Miller of Baltic, 8 pc Patio set - Holmes county Home of Holmesville, Bosch Mixer - Raymond N. Miller of Millersburg, DeWalt Drill - Roger Curtis of Weston, WV, Mose Keim Replica Clock - John Henry Troyer of Sugarcreek. The teen winner of a $100 gift card was Elsie Hershberger of Millersburg.

Robbie Keim, vice president of Keim Lumber, said that, “We had roughly 3,500 more people through the front door for the whole sale when compared to 2010.” Also this year’s sale set a new record for total sales.

Brittany 5K to raise money and awareness By Beth sCott of williams syndrome This year will be the seventh year for the Brittany 5K Run/Walk on Saturday, May 28 at Lake Park starting at 8:15 a.m. In the past years, the community has come together to show their support for Brittany Rogers and others around the nation who have been diagnosed with Williams Syndrome. “It’s always been very well attended and supported by the community,” said Nanci Rogers, Brittany’s mom, “It’s grown every year.” Williams Syndrome is very rare in the United States, with about one out of 10,000 babies diagnosed, compared to one out of 100 babies diagnosed with autism. Williams Syndrome is a genetic condition and affects chromosome seven, known for making elastin, where they lack one of their two chromosomes. Babies diagnosed with the syndrome can experience severe medical problems including cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and learning disabilities. These symptoms also coincide with the person’s deep love of music and their willingness to be friends with everyone they meet. Because of their many medical problems, people affected by Williams Syndrome need constant medical care and many doctor visits. The disease can be fatal, although it is rare, but children as young as two years old have died from

No, it is not required. When there is going to be a public visitation or viewing of the deceased, then yes it is. Also, if a deceased person is going to be transported in or out of the State of Ohio, embalming is required. A family may request no embalming for a closed casket service, graveside service or some types of cremation services. Our funeral home offers many personalized, affordable choices when it comes to meaningful services for your loved ones.

sudden cardiac arrest due to Williams Syndrome. As they become older, their symptoms become worse as the disease affects the brain, arteries and tissues. Despite the many challenges they face, individuals with Williams Syndrome enjoy their life and love making new friends. “They very much enjoy meeting people and seeing people,” said Nanci, “Anyone that smiles at them is their friend…She (Brittany) looks forward to this event every year. She’ll remember everyone who comes. She might not remember their name, but she’ll remember their face. I wish there were more opportunities for people with disabilities to interact with the community and be with their peers.” Currently, there are three people in Coshocton who suffer from Williams Syndrome, including Brittany. As with other people who have the disease, Brittany loves music and used to play the violin, and she loves listening to rock-n-roll. She loves animals and wants to become a dog groomer. The Brittany 5K Run/Walk is a competitive run. There will be prizes awarded for overall first place male and female and medals will be awarded for the first, second, and third male and female winners in each age division. Kids America will award the first overall male and female winners with a one year membership to Kids America. Home Loan Savings Bank and Ohio Heritage have also donated savings bonds to all winners. “The community has always helped and it’s always been a blessing,” said Nanci. The run will be at Lake Park and all participants will meet at Building 4. The cost is $25 per person or $50 per family. Last year, the run raised over $5,000 and Nanci hopes it will keep growing each year. Participants can register online at by May 15 for a guaranteed t-shirt. Registration will also be available the day of the event starting at 7:30 a.m. Bottled water, granola bars and bananas will be available at the event. After the walk, there will be a picnic for families suffering from Williams Syndrome from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. Last year, about 40 people attended the picnic from all over the state. “It gives them a chance to fellowship and see other families with Williams Syndrome,” said Nanci, “because most of the time, they have never met another family with a child with Williams Syndrome. So they love to get together and talk and play.” For more information on the run or for questions about registering, contact Nanci Rogers at 502-3818.

roscoe Village hosts speakers and “riders for relief” just a few More years’ Boys

The streets of Roscoe Village succumbed to the roar of several dozen motorcycles this past Saturday for the “Riders for Relief” motorcycle show and ride. Complete with live music blaring from the stage, children ran to and fro staring at the bikes, doing sidewalk chalk art, eating


popcorn and keeping mom and dad busy trying to decide which treat to try next. Riders for Relief is sponsored by Auer Ace Hardware and other local businesses that donated items for a silent auction and helped promote the

event. Debbie Chilcote of Auer Ace Hardware, said, “We’re taking non perishable food items for New Life Ministries and for Good Shepherds Assembly on Main Street. We’ll also be taking some of them money raised to help purchase something for the Alzheimer’s unit at Autumn Health Care. We have a lot of people out today; it’s a beautiful day for this, bands all day, lots of food and vendors. We have a bounce house, crafts, just lots going on today. We also have over thirty baskets we’ll be raffling off today so it’s a great day.” Roscoe Village also provided speakers at the Visitor’s Center on Saturday for those that wanted to gain information on planting, 3-D appliqué, local foods, home interior, fun flowers, making your own wine and knife sharpening. Many of the businesses in Roscoe Village also offered “Spring-In to the Village” specials on new merchandise, old favorites and Mother’s Day gift items over the weekend.

It had belonged to her aunt and uncle and they had purchased it at an auction in a dollar box, which is basically a box packed with items no one else would want. They took it home, never knowing the treasure inside. The quilt Martie purchased, along with the other similar quilt that had been with it, were buried in the bottom of the box. Martie’s quilt was made in the late 1800s and was probably used as a décor piece. It is also assumed that the quilt was created by a group as there are various dates and names on some of the blocks. Martie hopes to preserve the quilt one day and hopes to have it framed. She said, “It’s my pride and joy.”

Martie Moore-McConnell brought to the annual Canal Quilters Quilt Show the weekend of april 29. Martie purchased the quilt at an auction and found that it had been made in the late 1800s by a group of ladies as a décor piece. of course, it’s a lot more impressive in color!

Make a family cookbook Do you remember baking cookies with your grandmother as a child? Or how about when Mom helped you make stuffing the first time you hosted Thanksgiving dinner? If food means love in your family, consider making a cookbook of favorite family recipes. Scan or type up handwritten recipe cards and bind them together into one book. 2. Create a china mosaic Make a mosaic using some of Mom’s or Grandma’s old dishes that are chipped or cracked. It’s a great way to keep a pattern or color of china she loves within the house. You can find mosaic supplies at your local craft store for affordable prices. Consider adding a mosaic design to a platter, pot, vase or a photo frame.

In the aftermath of World War I, Washington D.C. resident Grace Darling Seibold formed an organization called Gold Star Mothers, to support the moms who had lost sons and daughters to the war. Grace’s son, First Lieutenant George Vaughn Seibold, was an aviator who had been killed in combat over France in 1918. In 1928, the small D.C.-based group decided to nationalize its efforts. The Gold Star Mothers grew from a support group of 60 women to an extensive nation-wide network with tens of thousands of members and hundreds of local chapters. Today, any American woman who has lost a child in the line of duty can join the Gold Star Mothers. The organization’s primary role then and now is to provide emotional support to bereaved mothers. Members also actively volunteer with the veteran community and act as patriotic supporters of the United States military. In 1936, a Joint Congressional resolution established the last Sunday in September as Gold Star Mother’s Day, a holiday that has been observed ever since by Presidential proclamation. The name the Gold Star Mothers was derived from the custom of military families to hang a service flag in their front window. The flag featured a star for each member of the family serving in the military; living members were denoted in blue, while gold stars honored family members killed in the line of duty.

MtVarts to present “the trip to Bountiful” MOUNT VERNON – MTVarts’ production of “The Trip to Bountiful,” as part of its Senior Series of plays, is now in rehearsal. It will be presented at The Alcove Restaurant in downtown Mount Vernon at 7 p.m. on May 6, 7, 13 and 14 with a 2 p.m. matinee performance on May 15. The play, written by Horton Foote, tells the story of Carrie Watts, an elderly woman living in a Houston apartment with an over-controlling daughter-in-law Jessie Mae and over-protective son Ludie. Her wish, “just once before she dies,” is to revisit Bountiful, the small Texas town of her youth. She has made many attempts to “escape,” but is always foiled by their vigilance. “Bountiful” tells the story of her final escape, and her journey where she befriends young Thelma and encounters the sheriff who has orders to hold Ms. Watts until her son arrives. Will her strong will and determination overcome the sheriff’s objections, or will she fail once again? This powerful presentation will have you rooting for her success. The 1985 movie version

of “Bountiful” featured an Oscar-winning performance by Geraldine Page and received five other nominations. “Bountiful” is directed by Susan Gordon, and features Micki Galajda as Carrie Watts, Bruce Jacklin as Ludie, Megan Evans as Jessie Mae, Jackie Hatch-Miller as Thelma and Richard McKinley as the sheriff. It also includes Ted Dingler, Sam Vance, Jerry Redfield and Kate Redfield in supporting roles. The production and design team includes Bruce Jacklin, producer; Dan Fox, Dan Bockover and Rick Ernsberger, scenic construction; Chris Aust, costume designer; Scott Swingle, lights and sound; Ian Ernsberger, technical director; Carrie Crouch, promotional design; and Bonnie Pickett and Katie Redfield, stage managers. MTVarts Senior Series focuses on plays that address senior adult issues, and feature intergenerational actors and producers. To support the Senior Series or volunteering, contact

Tickets are $15 and include show, dessert and a beverage. There will be social time starting half an hour prior to the start of each show. In addition, the Alcove Restaurant is offering 20% off any entrée for those wishing to have dinner prior to the performance. For tickets, call the Alcove Restaurant (740) 397-3076.

It was painted in 1964 by Coshocton artist, Ben Blackson as a gift from the senior class. Another Coshocton native, Benton Clark, created the mural that hangs at the Coshocton Fire Department, 325 S. 7th St in 1962. It features images of fire equipment from 1803, 1905 and 1962. Hoover says that each location will have a host or hostess who can answer questions and serve as a guide and share stories. Some of the guides are Todd Brown at Chase Bank; Irene Miller at the Courthouse; Helen Young (the artist’s wife) at Edie Ryan’s; and Pooch Blackson (the artist’s brother) at Central School. “We are grateful to all the owners/leaders of the participating locations for granting us permission to share their treasures and we are very excited to make this opportunity available to the citizens of our county during the Dogwood Festival of the Arts and Coshocton’s Bicentennial,” said Hoover. “Pictures and historical information about these murals will be kept in a file, which will eventually be housed at the Coshocton Public Library.” Hoover and other organizers of the event hope many people take advantage of this special tour. “So often, communities have treasures that are unknown by their residents,” she said. “This Mural Trail showcases some of these treasures. Participants will not only learn about the art, but they will also learn about our own roots and the history of this community.” For more information, visit www. or call (740) 622-0326.

silent auction to help purchase netbooks for students Walt Disney World tickets, Cleveland Indians game tickets, admissions to King’s Island Amusement Park, and golf packages are just some of the items featured in the River View Junior High Silent Auction on Saturday, May 7 from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. in the River View High School gymnasium. The auction is part of an effort by the parent group PSST to raise $27,000 to purchase 90 netbooks for the junior high students. “At present, the school has 75 desktop computers that are 15 years old,” said PSST Volunteer Patty Wherley. “Most of us wouldn’t settle for that at home or work, so why should our children?”

In the past 20 years, computers have become an essential tool for communication, work and entertainment. For current school-age children born in industrialized countries, a world without computers is unthinkable. Computer-related occupations are the fastest growing segment of the modern job market and the mastery of computer skills gives a competitive edge to individuals and nations alike. “Based on a 2010 school-wide survey, most students at the Junior High do not have Internet access at home and those who do have access do not have high-speed capability because of the district’s rural setting,” said River View Junior High Principal Sharon Tatro.

Wireless enabled netbooks will be used in classrooms, and available to the students through the library, for research as well as classroom projects, schoolwork and curriculum driven activities. “To address this growing need for a technology-savvy population and attempt to level the playing field for children in the River View School District, PSST is working to raise money to purchase and create three mobile computer labs at the Junior High,” Wherley said. “These netbooks are relatively low-maintenance tools that allow students the capability to use technology in a manner that the 21st century demands.”

Coshocton Hospital CEO Robert “Bob” Miller provided an update on the performance of the hospital during 2010 at a luncheon held Thursday, Apr. 28 at the hospital. Following a meal served by the hospital dining department, Miller introduced members of the board. Miller said, “We look at 2010 as not only a year of change, with our CEO (Greg Nowak) retiring after 20 years but also as a year of many financial challenges. We’ve had several years of those in the past, everything from the economic downturn that we all deal with from an industry to the reimbursement challenges that we have and the changes that continue to happen in the healthcare industry.” Miller also talked about the looming changes coming with healthcare reform and changes in the state franchise fee. Behind some of the headlines that have been in the news, Miller said, “Back in February we talked about our financial woes and we had to make cuts and we did. In June we talked about exploring additional cost saving measures and in February of this year we actually had a budget surplus. At the end of the year financially, the operations of the hospital showed a 3.8 million dollar loss. What happened to change those numbers? With normal year end closing you make some adjustments. This year we had some positive adjustments that added $415,000 to our bottom line. And on the next to the last day of the year we were able to complete the sale of our ECF bed license which added an extraordinary item of 1.3 million dollars to the operations of the hospital.” “We also qualified for a Medicare low volume adjustment that accounted for 2.6 million dollars of funds that we will receive from Medicare going back to 2008 and 2009. This is a good news, bad news story. We only received this due a reduction in utilization. If we continue to see those reductions in our utilization there’s not enough low volume money that will make up the difference for the operations of this hospital. This is not a trend that we want to continue or

We have full digital mammography, we have a 64 slice CT scanner, and our MRI has been totally upgraded. We can now also do digital dictation transcription.” Miller talked about charity care, community involvement from hospital employees and volunteer time, proud of the fact that the hospital is involved in community events and functions, with 1962 hours invested in the community. The Pink Ladies provided 8,589 hours of volunteer service. Miller also told the audience, that “Medicare pays us a lot of money, unfortunately 8.3 million dollars short of what it cost us to provide the service last year. And Medicaid was 6.5 million less than what is cost us to provide those services.” Miller said that, “Coshocton Hospital pumps over $24 million into the local economy. Our total employee count is down and it will continue to go down.” The hospital had 551 employees at year end which is down from 639 in 2009. Miller concluded by saying, “I’m most proud of our employees and the care that they give our patients. I’m proud of the fact that I was a patient recently and I saw the care that they give at the bedside and it’s second to none. And that’s the number one thing that our community needs to know. The second thing would be our technology is second to none. If you think that you need to go somewhere else because it’s a bigger, better testing machine, that’s not the case. We can do it here. If you have had a bad experience, give us a second chance. If you think things are not the way they should be, then come talk to us. We’ll improve it.” The biggest challenge facing the hospital, according to Miller, is,”Healthcare reform and the financial reductions we’re facing with the Medicare, Medicaid program and to be able to compete for adequate salaries for our staff to keep very capable people in the future.”

that we will continue at this hospital.” “Our final year end numbers, which were audited and presented to the board on Tuesday, is $522,000 bottom line. We still lost money from operations but from the extraordinary things that occurred, we were able to have a profitable bottom line for 2010. We’re very pleased with that and glad to be able to report that to the community.” Miller also said that, “To reverse the trend, we asked for a commitment from everyone that is a part of the process at the hospital.” This included a 5% pay cut for 77 salaried employees, changes in the contributed portion of retirement, increased premiums for health insurance and reduced everyone’s time off by 5 days. Miller said that some of the keys to the future success of the hospital are; “We have to sustain income from operations. We’re going to work on enhancing the operating efficiencies. We have to control our costs and work on ways to manage reimbursement, working with the insurance companies even greater than we do today. Number one, we have to work on ways to attract new patients.” “My desire is for people that need health care in our community use our hospital first.” Miller said that about 32% of people that need general surgeries choose to go outside of Coshocton. These are for things that we do every single day. 39% of the OB patients that deliver babies have delivered babies outside Coshocton. These are normal deliveries.” The hospital has also worked on improving and enhancing technology with Miller saying that Coshocton Hospital has technology that is, “second to none.” Miller said, “We have to become a better citizen of the community that we serve.” Miller also talked about the goals of the hospital for 2011. The hospital has merged computer systems, put in central registration at the 311 Building, hired a marketing director, moved urgent care that was on Chestnut Street and placed it at the hospital. A project has been started to consolidate all of the business offices at the Johnson warehouse, and the hospital has joined a consortium, which will save $250,000 over the next year on supplies. The hospital has reinvested in equipment during the past year which will lead to future savings in energy costs, with upgrades on boilers, lighting, HVAC, new dishwashing equipment and more. Miller said that the most important thing the hospital has done, “For our patients is to hire a patient advocate. Our patient advocate meets with about 400 patients a month, finding out what their concerns are.” Miller said, “People do not know how talented our staff is at this hospital. We have many, many board certified physicians, we have technicians that are very skilled in what they do from the lab to X-ray, we have very qualified nurses. We hired a marketing person to let the community know how strong of an institution we have and how they can be proud of it and to

ridgewood to host east regional school Bus safety road-e-o Registration is still open for the 2011 East Regional School Bus Safety Road-E-O that will be May 7th and hosted by Ridgewood Local Schools in West Lafayette. The School Bus Road-E-O is open to every school bus driver in the state of Ohio who is employed through a school district as a full-time or substitute driver with a valid CDL school bus driver endorsement. The Road-E-O gives drivers an opportunity to promote safety and recognizes them for their hard work and dedication to keeping students safe whenever they are on or around a school bus. The School Bus Safety Road-E-O is designed to test and increase driver operational and safety skills, and keep drivers up-to-date on the most recent transportation laws. Participants who score 80 percent (580 points) or higher at a regional or state competition may use that event toward their six-year recertification. This score will be good toward the bus driver’s driving portion of the recertification for up to two years. Aside from driving, school bus drivers and transportation supervisors could also serve as judges for this state-organized event. For the driving portion of the Road-E-O, drivers will have their choice of bus to drive: conventional (International) or transit (Blue Bird). The buses used for this event will be 71-passenger. Drivers will have 14 minutes to complete the maneuverability portion that consists of student loading and unloading, railroad crossing, diminishing clearance, forward stop line, right turns, offset streets, and a turnaround. There are two written tests with 50 multiple-choice questions each. The first test is General Knowledge where drivers are tested over current CDL and Ohio Motor Vehicle Laws and Ohio Pupil Transportation Operation and Safety Rules. The second test deals with the Pre-Trip Inspection of the bus. To register, contact Johanna Mizer, East Regional School Bus Safety Road-E-O

Chairperson by e-mail ( or call the Ridgewood Schools Superintendent’s Office at 545-6354. Road-E-O handbooks are available online at the ODE transportation Web site (ODE, Pupil Transportation Safety, School Bus Driver Safety Road-E-O).

Whatever you call them, exotics, aliens, nonnatives, invasives, or non-indigenous harmful species, invasive species affect us all in one way or another. Approximately 50,000 non-native species have been introduced to the United States. More than half these numbers are plants and insects. Making the Ohio news in recent years: Multicolored Asian ladybeetles, garlic mustard, Emerald Ash borer, Japanese Knotweed and many others. Learn to identify some of Ohio’s invasive plants and insects, their life cycle and how to help control their spread during sessions during Ohio’s Master Gardener Volunteer Week, May 15 - 21. On Tuesday, May 17 from 1:30 - 2:30 p.m. learn about invasive plants. On May 19 from 5:30 - 6:30 p.m. we’ll discuss invasive insects. Just to temper things, there is a session on May 18 from 1:30 - 2:30 p.m. to learn about companion planting. Companion planting is a way of planting mutually beneficial vegetables and flowers to have a healthier garden. All sessions are free and open to the public and will be in Room 145 of the County Service Building, located at 724 South 7th Street in Coshocton. Please RSVP by calling 622-2265 or emailing to ensure enough educational materials are available. For a downloadable flyer, go to: http://coshocton.osu. edu/topics/master-gardener-volunteer-program
