Dogwood festival off to a great start

by mark fortune

Anne Cornell, director of the Pomerene Center for the Arts, said at Monday’s performance, “It is a gorgeous day! This is the 25th year of the Dogwood Festival. The Dogwood Festival is a community celebration of the performing and visual arts which is a really strong component of our community. People that move in to the community or come and visit are always surprised at how vital and dynamic our arts community is and this is something that we can be proud of. It’s also an energy driver. There is some vitality down the line with our young people – this is really a “push forward” celebration”. For more information about the Dogwood Festival, go to

mayor thanks community for large turn out letter to the eDitor

Coshocton County Residents, We would like to take this opportunity to say a big “THANK YOU” to those of you who made the BIG Coshocton Clean Up Day a huge success. Despite inclement weather, over 80 people showed up at the Court Square last Saturday morning to help, and we know that there were many groups around the county doing their own projects too! It was so wonderful to see so many people who were willing to give up a few hours of their day to make a difference in our community. In a time where many people are struggling to make ends meet and find the positives in the world, this day was an example of the determination and pride of the

residents of Coshocton to come together and help one another. Individuals of all ages, families, and numerous groups all came together to lend a hand. On behalf of the City of Coshocton and the United Way of Coshocton County we want to thank everyone who was a part of the BIG Coshocton Clean Up Day and to those who worked in your own neighborhoods to make Coshocton a beautiful place, a place we can all be proud to call home. Join Hands for a Greener Community. LIVE UNITED! Gratefully, Mayor Steve Mercer City of Coshocton

Not always about the money: Although big spending is appreciated by some moms, it isn’t a requirement by all. The majority of surveyed mothers would prefer a day off from “kid duty” over a Tiffany blue box and the average Mother’s Day spending is less than $25. Small tokens of appreciation can delight mom and sites like offer cash back to help you save dollars while making mom happy.

(ARA) - Every year Americans dedicate one Sunday in May to showing their mothers how much they appreciate their hard work. Whether they are presented with a homemade card, massage, a snazzy getaway or a new spring outfit, moms are ready to soak in a day full of attention focused on them. But the question always remains: “What do moms really want for Mother’s Day?” A recent survey conducted by Bing, provides some insight into the mind of the nation’s moms. Dos and don’ts: While many mothers look forward to family time and a break from fighting children, most want a little something more to show how valued they truly are. Dads and kids, don’t think this is an invitation to buy a new blender. The Bing survey shows that home appliances rank among the least appreciated gifts joining pets, breakfast in bed, self-help books and clothing and lingerie that she never plans on wearing. Instead of hitting the home appliances aisle, head for the card rack

Of concern to the hospital is the increasing amount of charity care and uncompensated care being provided to the community. This amount was almost 10 million dollars in 2009, which Nowak attributes to the economic climate in the area and was a significant increase over 2008. Following the meeting, Mr. Nowak responded to the question, “What is the biggest challenge facing the hospital in 2010?”, “I think it’s going to be for the people in our area to utilize the services that we have here. If people don’t utilize the services then they won’t have a hospital in the future. We’ve serviced the public in the past and I think we can continue doing that. The secret is going to be offering the services needed, making the services more convenient and working with our doctors in the community to discover how we can better meet the needs of the residents. There are a lot of residents here due to the economy skipping treatment or waiting until the last minute, which is really sad. We take care of the patients and we’re trying to do what is right for the patient”. “As we head into our 101st year, it’s kind of exciting. Change during the first 100 years was fairly evenly paced. I think what we’re going to see during the second 100 years is a faster pace of change. Whether we want it to or not, it’s going to change”. Nowak concluded, “We’re here to do what is right for the patients and people of Coshocton County”. County Commissioner D. Curtis Lee, remarked, “It’s important to have a local hospital, someplace you can go for your needs, emergencies, especially when time is of the essence like a heart attack or stroke. It’s important to have something close by. It’s a big asset to our community. The hospital is involved in a lot of things and they are doing a lot of work they are not being paid for. They’re just a vital asset to our community”.

The Coshocton County Memorial Hospital celebrated its 100 year anniversary in 2009 and hospital administrator, Greg Nowak, explained during the recent annual meeting that, “We have been through difficult times and it is remarkable when you think of all the things the hospital has been through in that one hundred years”. Following opening remarks by Jason Bradford, Board of Trustees vice chairperson, Nowak explained that the annual meeting is, “A means of communicating what is happening at the hospital. You can never communicate enough”. Highlights of 2009 include; utilizing 15 swing beds on the fourth floor of the hospital, celebrating 100 year anniversary, opening a new medical clinic in Warsaw, continuing to reduce operating expenses and adjusting to current economic conditions and working with the East Ohio Hospital Alliance to help reduce costs of services and also to increase the availability of new services. Three new physicians were recruited to the community in 2009; Dr. Wendy Redmond, family medicine, Dr. Arthur Papadopol, family medicine, and Dr. William Schultz, family medicine. Dr. Redmond and Dr. Papadopol are practicing in the Pleasant Valley Medical Clinic while Dr. Schultz joined the Arrowhead Clinic.

student news

May 5th, 1950 The McClelland and Kennard grocery store, located on Main St in West Lafayette, was ablaze with flames of fire. The fire, believed to have been caused by a defective compressor in a cooler, destroyed the interior of the store as well as all the stock. The residence part of the building was also severely damaged and Mr. and Mrs. Strasser’s furniture and other household items were completely lost. The owner, Walter C. Blind, said he could not give an estimate of loss at the time, although he expects it to be great. He said he is in debt to the West Lafayette and Coshocton firefighters for saving the exterior of the building. The fire was believed to have started at 3:30 a.m. and spread quickly.

This is the second time the sorority has donated a television set to the home. The proceeds from the sorority’s Sweetheart Ball were used to purchase the set. Mrs. Catt, president of the sorority, presented the set to superintendent and matron of the home, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Reiss. Special guests for the event included county commissioner Floyd Stillebauer and his wife. The evening also consisted of entertainment including a vocal quartet, tap dancing, a jitterbug dance, games and refreshments. classified hotline 622-4ads

River View track team placed second out of thirteen teams participating in the New Lexington Invitational meet. The Bears scored a total of 44.5 points, only 14.5 points behind the champion team, New Lexington. Art Sampsel even broke a school record at the meet as he scored 12’3” on the pole vault. He took first place in the event. The Bear’s shuttle hurdles relay team also broke a school record and took second in the event. All-in-all, the boys gave a fine performance and put up a fight for first place, but was awarded second place, which was nothing to be ashamed of. They were rewarded at the end for their efforts with a handsome runners-up trophy.

Mrs. Edna Voshall really understood the meaning of the word “volunteer”. She was recognized for her 50 years of volunteer service at the Coshocton Memorial Hospital during a volunteer luncheon. Not only did she volunteer her services, but donated her musical talents as well by playing the piano for several occasions. Because of her many years of service, Mrs. Voshall received an award from Gov. James Rhodes at the Ohio State Fair in 1978. She said that volunteering has become a part of her life and that she has received so much more than she has given. In addition to volunteering, she was also a long-time member of many women’s clubs in Coshocton. All information was obtained from microfilm of the Coshocton Tribune at the Coshocton County Library.

Need a reason to celebrate? Then come on down to the 3rd annual Black Bear Festival Celebration of Excellence on Saturday, May 8 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the River View High School. The Black Bear Festival started when the school district received an Excellent rating from the state three years ago. That rating is still going strong and the staff wanted to show off their students and why their school is so great. Their goal is finding what each student excels in and display their works in the High School hallway. They also try to display at least one piece per student and exhibit a wide variety of subjects. “This is the kid’s opportunity to show off to the public what they’re best at and what makes us excellent,” said Amanda Meiser, committee member. There’s something for the whole community at this event. Along with the Halls of Excellence where the student’s works will be shown, there will also be music provided by each music department, crafts, bingo, pony rides and a petting zoo from the River View FFA, a kid’s zone including five inflatable play houses which are set up and torn down by the high school football team, a donation dunk tank where students can pay a couple of bucks to dunk their teachers, administrators and community members, (all proceeds from the dunk tank will go to Relay for Life), face painting, model airplanes, snow cones, delicious sweets from the FCCLA and the Family and Consumer Science classes, (win at

Bingo and your prize is a delicious pastry), an information fair where non-profit area businesses can set up a booth with free information about their services, free popcorn, and don’t forget the 3rd annual car show. The car show will feature both vintage and modern cars. A trophy will be awarded to Best of Show, cars and trucks that are pre- and post-1950. Registration will be from 11 a.m. – Noon and the event will be on the lawn in front of the River View High School. Dash plaques will be awarded to the first 50 cars. Something new this year will be the pancake fundraiser put on by the music departments and the music boosters. The music students are going to Disney to perform and are selling pancakes from 8 a.m. – Noon at the festival to help defer cost. Pancakes are $4 for adults and $2 for kids. “Accomplishment is what this is all about,” said Renee Anderson, committee member, “and to be able to celebrate that with the community.” This event is completely self-funded through sponsors and donations. Every year, a couple hundred teachers and students volunteer their time to make this event possible. “It’s an opportunity for the kids to feel like they are a part of something and to give something back,” said Sheri Fortune, past committee member and volunteer. The emergency squads in Coshocton County will be at the festival to show off their equipment. Med Flight will also be present for a demonstration. The Zemba Brothers are also bringing their equipment for the kids to play on under adult supervision. For more information on the Black Bear Festival, visit and click on Black Bear Festival.

balloon update! A couple of weeks ago, the children at the Coshocton County Head Start released some balloons into the air as part of National Young Child’s Week in hopes that someone would find them and write back. Well, a few days later, a woman in West Virginia was outside and saw her horse playing with a balloon. She realized it had come a long way because it had a note attached to it from the Coshocton County Head Start. She immediately wrote back and the students received the letter only days after they released their balloons.

A Senior Living Community just like you are my heroes”, members of the Learn how you could save Relay for Life committee served birthday cake some money and how your costs may be tax deductible. to the survivors and caregivers.


Those were the words spoken by Murray McMillen, one of the keynote speakers at the annual cancer Survivors banquet. The banquet was held at the Moose Lodge in Coshocton on Thursday evening, Apr. 29. The banquet is held annually so that cancer survivors and caregivers can join together to celebrate the support and for the community to show support for our cancer survivors. Over two hundred survivors and caregivers attended the event with a theme of, “Survivor Birthday Celebration”. Members of the Moose Lodge family center prepared a delicious meal which was served by the registered nurses association. Lisa Murray, who coordinated the event, said, “The evening has been wonderful. The turnout has been excellent and the help has been great. My family here at the Moose, Don Freed, the kitchen manager, Lisa, everyone is just wonderful. Kim Gress, Emily Kobel and Laurie Stephan have been just great, my husband, the nurses here helping serve, and my family all here helping out. I appreciate them so much.” Murray added, “It’s important to have this to show cancer survivors how much we appreciate them. They can talk together, share some tips, the care and treatment they’re getting. Thank you so much to the community for helping – everyone has been wonderful!” Murray McMillen, said, “I have survived. McMillen said that he had his life planned out the way it was supposed to go. I had passed all of the tests I needed to (for Officer Candidate School) – I thought I was going to be an airplane pilot in the Air Force. I had my life planned out and God shut the door. Two years later, we went in to see the Preacher, we had been dating for about two years, and he said, “Murray, have you ever thought about being a Pastor?” There are times in our life when we just don’t understand what God is doing. But if we give him enough time, and we are patient with him, he’ll let us know. I’m standing here tonight because I was diagnosed with cancer”. Special entertainment was provided by Barbara Moody, who sang, “The Climb”, Bill Moody, who played a song written just two weeks ago by Dan Mitchell, titled, “The Edge” and also later performed, “The Dance”. An emotional Tina Johnson then spoke about her cancer ordeal with daughter Lauren, who was diagnosed with a rare form of eye cancer that affects the retina at only six months of age. “I cried happy tears the first time I saw

small town in the Oklahoma Territory during a time of strife between cowboys and farmers, all of whom are trying to eke out a living on the prairie. Complete with a chorus and orchestra, the performance was directed by Deborah English with assistant directors Danie Casey and James Rose. A delicious dinner was available before the show on both evenings, giving members of the cast time to mingle with family members and friends prior to the show. Starring junior Kasi Karr as the precocious Laurey Skidmore and Colby Tarrh as cowboy Curly in the lead roles, the play also saw the acting and vocal talents of Autumn Appis, Austin Bible, Tricia Brown, Neal Fox, Kendall Meek, Nathan Shutt and Ethan “Peddler” Widder, among many other gifted students at River View. Each actor or actress was comfortable in their role, so much so that when I saw Ethan Widder on Sunday I half expected him to have that big bag of “merchandise” with him, the jaunty hat and pants about 6 inches too high! But he didn’t. Senior Joel Hamric, who has been in the choir, said, “I’ve never done any acting on the stage before. It’s a lot of fun up there. It’s been a blast. I would encourage a lot of other students to try and do it. I’ve made a lot of friends”. Sophomore Kendall Meek, who played the flirty Ado Annie, said laughingly, “All the guys like my character, the women don’t. I was kind of surprised to get a lead role, but also excited. It’s a lot of fun”. Fred Wachtel commented about the performance, saying, “It’s always fun to see the

Renowned musician and Coshocton Community Choir director, Mr. Charles R. Snyder, was named the 2010 winner of the Coshoctonian Award during the 28th annual Coshocton County Chamber of Commerce dinner on Friday evening, Apr. 30. Following a dinner catered by the Coshocton Hospital dietary unit, Don Hutchins, President of the Chamber of Commerce board of directors gave the opening remarks and introduced Executive Director Carol Remington. Remington told the audience that, “The Coshocton County Chamber of Commerce is strong, vibrant and growing”. She also provided an update on Chamber activities and accomplishments during the past year. Robert and Renee Guilliams of Ravens Glenn Winery were given special recognition for providing the wine and glasses for the evening’s events and for being one of four businesses recognized by the Eastern Ohio Development Alliance. Ravens’ Glenn received the award of Excellence for Tourism. The Coshocton County Employee of the Year Award was presented by Doug Marmie,

President of the Coshocton Rotary Club. The award was, for the first time ever, presented to two deserving individuals in the community. Neal Lillibridge, of Property Data Services, was one of the winners. He has worked at Property Data Services for more than 25 years. 86 years old, Lillibridge remarked, “It feels kind of good. I’ve been in the background pretty much all of my life. I enjoyed winning the award and it’s been fun!” Beatrice Guilliams, known to most as Bea, was the other recipient of the award. Guilliams has worked at Riverside Towers for twenty years and is actively involved in the community. She commented on her award, “What a shock! When I started working at the high rise, my Dad told me, “Don’t you ever shame me”. This is for him. “I feel proud and honored to be in this group”. She was nominated by her supervisor. A 75 year old locally owned and operated business, Hahn Oil was awarded with the Richard Rea Small Business of the Year Award, sponsored by the Coshocton Kiwanis Club. T.J. Justice, President of the club, presented an emotional Ellen Conkle with the clock trophy that is the hallmark of this award. Hahn Oil now employs 19 and has been in the current location since 1955. Conkle commented, “I feel wonderful. This is a small town, everyone knows everybody, you know people by name and we know our customers. It’s just awesome to live in a town like this. The support is awesome. The family is wonderful, we all work together, and it’s just great that we can all work together. I just wish my parents were here to see it”. Following an introduction of previous Coshoctonian Award winners that were in attendance, Robin Coffman delivered his usual well prepared preamble to the formal announcement of this year’s Coshoctonian Award winner, Mr. Charles R. Snyder. Snyder said, “It’s been a real kick, I think, an emotional paycheck to have kids audition for the Children’s Choir who are children of students when I taught. The relationships with the people keep me going. Just loving the people. One of the things that have happened since we started the children’s choir 23 years ago is that the first time when there was something when all the kids from the high schools got together and found out that they could be friends. One of the cool things is to go to athletic or musical events and find kids from other schools who know these kids and they root these kids on in their events. It makes me believe that maybe peace in the world is possible”. Snyder remarked when asked, “If you could put this award into a song, what would it be”, “Impossible Dream!” It just makes me think of all of these people that have helped me along the way and it really makes me miss my parents, who planted so many wonderful seeds in me, Roy McKinley, who got this choir started and Helen Wright, who came and talked to me when

Over three hundred area youngsters were supported by their moms, dads, grandpa’s grandmas and others at the annual Lake Park Fishing Derby held Saturday, May 1.

It’s nice to get back out and get in touch with the outdoors”. Relay Team Super Cure even had a bake sale with cupcakes, sugar cookies, chocolate chip cookies and much more on hand for the event. Susan Brink and Mary Jackson, said, “We’re getting ready and we’re excited for the Relay”.

30-foot tree Dick Jones proudly displays this 30 foot tall Wisteria plant that he has had for fifteen years in his backyard. He says the plant has never reached these heights before, but didn’t bloom last year. He thinks this is the reason why it has grown so tall this year. This plant usually takes four to five years after planting to bloom, and usually blooms earlier in the year. But Dick thinks the cooler weather we have been having has made this plant a late bloomer this year. He also has another Wisteria plant that is much smaller with 29 different branches on it. usually, Dick says bumblebees swarm the plant, but because of the cooler weather, they were not out when the picture was taken.

When the club moved to the fairgrounds in 1992, their goal was to have a mainline track finished. Those twenty years have come and gone, but still no mainline. However, don’t let that discourage you. The layout is still more than impressive and President Beighley says it will probably be another 10 – 15 years before the entire layout is completed. “We can remember when a train went through town and the engineer would wave at you and there would always be a guy on the caboose and he would wave at you. I always wished I could go all the interesting places they go,” said member Richard Jones. But the real pride and joy of the club is the old machine manufactured in the early 1900s used in Quincy, Ohio to route trains through interlocking sections of the track. This huge machine now runs a much smaller system at the Model Railroad Club, and is one of the few clubs in the nation that has one. You can’t miss it! “This is our way of actually miniaturizing the real thing,” said President Beighley, “We are interested in locomotives and we try to replicate it in miniatures. We just love it!” The next project on the club’s list is to create a life-like logging industry. With all the talent they possess, there is no doubt that any project they create will be creative, realistic, and absolutely amazing. The Model Railroad Club has their regular meetings on Friday nights at 8 p.m. in their building at the fairgrounds. To get to their building, enter the fairground’s main entrance and go straight until you see the locomotive on your left. Whether you’re young or just young at heart, the Model Railroad Club is enjoyable for everyone. So this Saturday, take a journey through time when locomotive trains used to run through Coshocton County and the engineer would tip his hat and blow that whistle!

Pan-oston comes to coshocton Other products Pan-Oston feature includes metal frame counters with wood paneling, bakery cases, wine display racks, produce racks, and magazine racks. The goal of Pan-Oston is to sell innovative products to independent grocery stores at a cheaper price all around the world. Because 50% of groceries are independently owned, money is tight and new products cannot be purchased. That’s where Pan-Oston comes in. They can sell self-checkouts, counters, racks, anything that a grocery store may need, at a cheaper price. Pan-Oston is currently traveling to various cities in Ohio and showcasing their wares to small

grocery stores. They decided to take their products to the road so that small businesses wouldn’t have to travel to large cities to a convention. “Our goal is that we give independent retailers the tools to be competitive and offer similar services as the larger retailers,” said Jeff Geron, director of business development. Bakers was uncertain at the time of press whether or not they were going to purchase a product from Pan-Oston, but that they enjoyed the educational experience and enjoyed seeing the new products available. For more information on Pan-Oston, visit their Web site at www.panoston. com.

25 business Directory

On Wednesday, April 28, Baker’s Food received a special visit from Pan-Oston, the leader in store checkout counters and fixtures for over 40 years. They traveled from their home location in Kentucky to Coshocton, Ohio to showcase their latest technological solutions for the average independent grocery store at a lower price. One such exciting new product is the Shop Hear TM self-checkout system for customers with hearing problems. Instead of the selfcheckout voice coming through the speakers, this new innovative system directs the voice from the speaker into the customer’s hearing aide, eliminating background noise.

The first president of Rotary International was Paul Harris. As a result of Paul Harris’s idea, the Paul Harris Fellow Recognition was proposed as a means of endowing the Rotary Foundation. The distinctive Paul Harris Fellow medallion, lapel pin, and attractive certificate have become highly respected symbols of a substantial financial commitment to the Rotary Foundation by Rotarians and friends. All members of the West Lafayette Club have become Paul Harris Fellows, which now designates the club as a Paul Harris Club. Internationally, there are over 1 million Paul Harris Fellows which has made it possible for Rotary International to promote many programs such as the eradication of polio around the world, ambassadorial scholarships, World Peace Fellowships, and working with hunger and health issues in underdeveloped
