We are very fortunate to have him (Hettinger) in the area.” This event is in its fourth year and will be Saturday, May 17 from noon to 9 p.m. at Clary Gardens.

Next month, Clary Gardens will be breaking ground for a 10x10 lookout tower where children can play and view the whole gardens and part of Coshocton. They also hope to construct Calder’s Cabin soon where children can be educated on plants and the environment. “We want to have ongoing education about different types of plants and have a place where kids can get down and dirty and dig in the dirt,” said Campbell. “Our sincere desire is to educate and keep environmental stewardship and at the same time be fun for the kids.” For more information on Taste for Summer, visit their website listed above, or go to “You don’t normally see festivals like this in small communities,” said Campbell. “They’re normally in larger cities like Cleveland or Columbus. This one is the only one of its kind around here.” BETH@COSHOCTONCOUNTYBEACON.COM

what our local area has to offer,” said Campbell. “You can sample eight different wineries at the festival. You don’t have to go to each and every one of them. You can sample all in one day.

Vendors will include everything from home and garden items to crafts, from silver jewelry to bath fitters and everything in between. “Hopefully, it will be an exposure to what’s in our own backyard,” said Campbell. “It’s a really good way to showcase some of our local businesses.

Evangelist Caplinger to speak on Voice of the Martyrs at Word Worship Center BY BETH SCOTT Voice of the Martyrs, an inter-denominational Christian organization dedicated to assisting the persecuted church worldwide. The organization was started in 1967 by Pastor Richard Wurmbrand who was imprisoned for 14 years in Romania for his Christian beliefs. Caplinger will be at the Word Worship Center on Sunday, May 18 to give a presentation about Voice of the Martyrs during the 10:15 a.m. worship service. They would also be interested in speaking in other local churches before June 23, which is when they leave the area. “The most common first answer that people who are in prison give when asked what we can do to help them is prayer,” said Caplinger. “One of the most encouraging things we can do for them is pray.” For more information on “Have God, Will Travel”, visit their website at havegodwilltravel. org. For more information on Voice of the Martyrs, visit “Between my wife and Pastors Jim and Robin Gross (of Word Worship Center), they have been the greatest support team to me,” said Caplinger. “God has really blessed us.” BETH@COSHOCTONCOUNTYBEACON.COM

...and we’ve got the answers to your questions. Should I be a Hospice volunteer? What would I be doing? Hospice volunteers report they are motivated by the desire to give something back and soon find that the spiritual and emotional rewards they receive far outweigh the time and caring they contribute. Volunteers gain satisfaction by making a positive impact on the lives of others. They assist patients in a variety of ways, including: • Reading • Craft projects • Sitting quietly with a patient • Administrative work in the Hospice office • Assistance with errands and transportation The most valuable skill a volunteer has is the ability to be a compassionate presence. Call today to learn more about how you can use your talents as a hospice volunteer.

Q: A:



COSHOCTON – Evangelist William “Shannon” Caplinger of West Lafayette established a local ministry in August 2013 called, “Have God, Will Travel” and had a revival in Coshocton County in September of that year, reaching out to the unchurched in the county. Since then, God has led Caplinger and his wife Bernie to travel the nation spreading the word of God, especially to campers and those who live in RVs. “We travel wherever God opens doors for us to help revitalize churches wanting to experience growth,” said Caplinger. “We want to help reestablish a regular Sunday morning nondenominational service in park areas.” There was a time when parks had a chaplain who would perform worship services each Sunday morning, but many have abandoned that service today. Christians who are now traveling in RVs and enjoy camping may go weeks without hearing a Christian message, and Caplinger hopes to change that. He and his wife will be leaving the area in June to travel to various parks in the eastern United States to help clean up the park, check in guests, and ask if anyone may be interested in establishing a local chaplain for Sunday morning services. “It gives us an open door with the people because we are helping them and it gives us an opportunity to minister to the people,” said Caplinger. “We are taking church to the unchurched. We just really feel blessed and honored that God has called us to do this. The doors are opening and we’re excited.” In addition to traveling the nation spreading the word of God, “Have God, Will Travel” has just been accepted as area representatives for

Reader thanks teacher To the Editor, Even though National Teacher Appreciation Week was last week, I wanted to take a moment to thank a teacher who is still important to me today. Mary Eaton was my kindergarten teacher during the 1991-92 school year at the former Central Elementary. When I was in high school we reconnected and we’ve remained in touch since then. She’s always been there to talk to and brightens my spirit with the sweet cards she sends in the mail. I love the cards and the fact that she always takes time when I need someone to be there. I keep her in my heart and in my thoughts. She is retired now, but I am honored that I had the opportunity to be in her classroom. Nicole Hamilton Coshocton

Gibbs wants government to live TO THE BEACON BY within its means CONTRIBUTED U.S. REP. BOB GIBBS (R-OH) Right now too many Americans are feeling the effects of the reckless spending habits coming out of Washington. Americans feel it at the gas pump, the doctor’s office, the grocery store and when they pay their taxes. Families and individuals across the country must live within their means and it’s time the government did as well. A balanced budget will expand opportunities by growing the economy and creating jobs. Adopting a balanced budget is about establishing priorities. Without a budget, there is no plan for the future. With a sluggish economy and stagnant job growth, we must work towards a budget that will balance and provide certainty to businesses. The House Republican budget reduces spending by over $5.1 trillion over ten years and reforms the tax code along with helping Americans break free from the burdensome costs of Obamacare. The ‘Path to Prosperity’ budget will balance the budget in 10 years, where the Democrats’ budget never balances – ever. Without a balanced budget, interest costs will consume dollars from other important areas such as defense and research and development. By balancing the budget by 2024, we will be able to grow the economy and shrink big government. Along with a balanced budget, the ‘Path to Prosperity’ allows one-sixth of the U.S. economy to no longer face the government mandates and controls of Obamacare. This plan makes sensible reforms that need to be made in order for our economy to recover and bring certainty back to the job market. It is reckless to take more from hardworking families, only to spend more in Washington. My first priority is to make sure that I represent the issues that matter most to you. This budget will provide families with a fair, simple tax code to boost wages and create jobs. We will also be able to give seniors peace of mind because we will be able to secure their retirement by strengthening Medicare and other vital programs. By strengthening the SEE “GIBBS” PAGE 6

France goes over more America In Bloom criteria

CONTRIBUTED TO THE BEACON BY COSHOCTON IS BLOOMING PRESIDENT TIM FRANCE “when do you find time to write those articles?” Let me answer the question by sharing the contents of a card I received the week before. It is from a local citizen who asked to remain anonymous. Dear Mr. France: I enjoyed reading your article - “Show Your Love for Coshocton” recently in the Coshocton Beacon and it started me to do some thinking about my hometown. I am grateful for the contributions you have given to Coshocton. One in particular is the Coshocton County Courthouse Square-----a place of beauty! Coshocton is not only a place of beauty but also a city of quality----thanks to you and many others who care and love our town. Enclosed is a contribution to Coshocton Is Blooming to be used in any way you see fit. It is not unusual for me to receive three (3) or four (4) thank-you cards each year, some with pictures. People often stop me and thank me when I am working downtown, or as they drive by or at a local business or restaurant. So, let me answer the question with a question---how do you NOT find the time to do the right thing when so many people notice and appreciate your work?

Today I want to review the fourth criteria of America In Bloom (AIB). However, I also want to share a letter I received and answer a question I was asked last week. But first, the fourth criteria is Environmental Efforts. This area is reviewed in terms of sustainability practices; recycling (paper, glass, metal, plastic, electronics, etc.), policies and bylaws, sustainable development strategies, waste reduction, hazardous waste minimization and collection (oil, paint, chemicals, used batteries, etc.), water quality and conservation, energy conservation, environmental cleanup activities, reducing carbon footprint, environmentally friendly transportation, LEED certification, air, noise and light pollution, rain gardens and rain barrels, composting, energy efficiency, youth programs and events such as Earth Day, Recycling Days, Bike to Work Days, etc. The Judges look at Municipal leadership in environmental initiatives, effective communication of environmental strategies and initiative, new programs, improvement and innovation. They also review business and residential participation in environmental efforts, new programs, improvement and innovation, volunteer involvement and youth participation. Last year, the Judges noticed the recycling efforts of the community with curbside recycling but commented that even though eighty percent (80%) of the residents utilize those services, there is only a thirty-seven percent (37%) recycle rate. They commended Rock-Tenn cardboard recycling efforts, but encouraged the schools and government to reduce our carbon footprint by reducing energy use and using low flow plumbing fixtures. They noted the rain barrels and rain garden projects of OSU Extension and the Pomerene Center, but encouraged the City Schools to step up. They also commended the use of cisterns at Clary Gardens to reduce erosion and conserve water for irrigation purposes. The question I was asked last week was

“GIBBS” CONTINUED FROM PAGE 4 safety net of federal aid programs, states will have more flexibility to tailor programs to their state specific needs. This budget stops spending money we don’t have. It reinforces the responsibility the government has to the American people. We must have a balanced budget and follow those set spending limits, rather than the “spend now – pay later” mentality that plagues Washington. Passing this budget insures that we will leave a better future for the next generation of hard working Americans. A balanced budget is something the American people live by and it’s time the government started to be responsible for its spending rather than push our debt onto the next generation.

May 14th, 1954 The circus was coming to Coshocton! The Coshocton Junior Chamber of Commerce would soon have tickets available for the biggest show in town, the King Brothers Circus! The Jaycees aimed to raise money through ticket sales to finance their civic improvement and youth activity endeavors. The Kings Brothers circus was the second-largest on the road and featured a street parade never to be forgotten with bands, calliopes, cages of wild jungle beasts, and a herd of elephants. The big tent would accommodate 6,500 persons and tents for the show covered a whole city block.


May 17th, 1964 Herb Riley of Frazeysburg enjoyed restoring old houses. As he was removing walls from an old house on SR 16 to make way for a new highway, Riley came across several old flags. One of the flags had 33 stars on it, another had 42, and the two remaining had 45 and 48. Riley said the flag with the 33 stars must be from the 1850s since Oregon didn’t become a state until 1859. Other articles from the past found in the house include several issues of The Ladies Home Journal, published in May and December of 1893.


May 16th, 1974 Coshocton High School Track team won its own single entry track meet by eight points, defeating runner-up West Muskingum and River View. Coshocton walked away with 60 points while West Muskingum had 52 and River View’s standings were 51. The Redskins boasted an excellent performance by Paul Tisdale who recorded a first in the 100-yard dash with a time of 10.5 and the 220 with a time of 23.7. Coshocton’s mile relay team of John Ayers, Jan Myers, Dan Parks, and Joel Secrest ran for a new stadium record of 3:35.7. River View’s Steve Mason took home first in pole vaulting at 12 feet.

May 17th, 1984 River View’s Lady Bears had made a complete recovery after a rocky start to their 1984 season by winning District Title against Maysville and Philo in the sectional tournament. The Shamrocks had previously been crushing through the season with a 14-1 standing until the Lady Bears knocked them down to 14-2. River View had started the season with a 6-8 standing due to the fact that the team was in a rebuilding year. They were now 12-9 and would be headed to regionals to face either Licking Valley or Columbus Bishop Hartley in Lancaster.

CONTRIBUTED TO THE BEACON COSHOCTON - Coshocton Environmental and Community Awareness Inc. will feature Calvin Tillman, the former mayor of Dish, Texas and John Fenton, a cattle rancher from Pavillion, Wyo. at the 2 p.m. Saturday, May 17 event, Living on the Shale at Coshocton Village Inn, 115 N. Water St. Tillman and Fenton were first introduced in the award winning documentary, “Gasland” and will speak and answer questions about the devastating impact hydrofracking is having on the health, property and livelihood of local residents in their communities and what they are doing about it. They will be preceded by Kari Matsko, a founding member of The People’s Oil and Gas Collaborative - Ohio who was herself a victim of fracking related hydrogen sulfide gas poisoning in her home in Broadview Heights. At 11 a.m. Briget Shields will speak on behalf of residents around the nation harmed by fracking who were included in the Shalefield Stories publishing project. She will be followed by Paul Feezel who will talk about living in Carroll County, where heavy industrial fracking operations are underway. A number of faith-based, community action, and sustainable living environmental groups will have tables set up to share information and offer items for sale. Admission is free. Lunch will be available and can be ordered at the website This daylong event running from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. was organized by a local non-profit corporation, Coshocton Environmental and Community Awareness Inc. (CECA). This newly formed environmental education and action organization serves Coshocton County and the East Central Ohio area. The event is an effort to raise awareness of the immediate destructive consequences of shale development as well as to underscore the urgent need for concerted action on climate change. CECA was formed by residents of Coshocton and Knox County who realized that if they wanted their concerns for the environment addressed that there was no local group with which they could meet. They came together in January of this year to form an organization dedicated to advocacy for environmental issues and to promote a green and sustainable society that offers a future for our children.


IN MEMORY Blue Star Mothers OH59 are making sure Coshocton’s fallen are not forgotten this Memorial Day. There are almost 100 KIA/MIA Memorial Bridges in Coshocton County and the group randomly selected one of them from each of Coshocton’s 22 townships to feature at the Coshocton Public Library during the month of May. The display includes pictures of the individuals, facts about their service and a photograph of their marker. It also includes some memorabilia of the group’s members such as a 1952 Newcomerstown High School year book honoring a relative who was killed in action in Korea and a telegram letting a family know their relative had died in World War I. The Blue Star Mothers meet monthly at the Church of the Nazarene Adult Ministry Center, 1030 Orange St. Pictured working on the display are Blue Star Mothers: Cathy Meek, Kitty Exline and Marge Pizzino. | BEACON PHOTO BY JOSIE SELLERS

Local author hopes book helps others heal


COSHOCTON - Journaling and writing songs has helped Renee Corbett heal, and now she hopes her words will do the same for others. Corbett shares her story of dealing with addiction in her book called, “Families in Bottles.” “Originally I wrote it for a contest,” Corbett said. “I felt like God wanted me to write it, but I didn’t win.” A publishing company contacted her after the contest, but it cost money to work with them and Corbett dropped the idea of seeing her book in print.

“I just thought if the Lord wanted me to publish this he would find a way,” Corbett said. That way came to her when she was talking to another parent while watching her daughter cheer at a ballgame. Corbett ended up working with America Star Books and this spring her 61 page book was released. “I’ve written lots and lots of things over the years and to see something published is really nice,” she said. “My grandmother passed poems

and things she’s written down to me and it will be nice to be able to pass this along to my family. I also hope other people read it and it will be helpful to them.” Corbett has already seen the book make a difference with the jail ministry program she is part of. “I have not nearly been through what others have, but I gave this book to the girls at the jail and it’s helped them open up to me,” she said. Corbett also hopes the book helps people establish a relationship with Jesus, because doing this was the turning point in her life. “I believe Jesus is the answer for everything,” she said. “He won’t leave us or disappoint us like humans do. Humans make mistakes and sometimes we expect too much out of people, but Jesus will always be there for you.” “Families in Bottles” is available at www., and Prices vary, but if you message Corbett on Facebook she can get the book for a discounted price. “The money I have gotten for them, I’ve put back to use for the jail ministry,” she said. “I’ve learned so much from the women there. I do it with Cindy Carroll and the Women of Witness. We’d like to start a transitional home for them so they have a place to go that is Christian based and can help provide them with their needs.” JOSIE@COSHOCTONCOUNTYBEACON.COM

COLUMBUS - United States citizens have about a 33-percent chance of developing invasive cancer throughout their lifetime, according to 2010 research by the American Cancer Society. In Ohio, lung-related cancers share the highest mortality rates among both men and women, claiming one-third of males and 26 percent of females. Thanks to continuous research and improved treatments, mortality rates for all cancers combined have declined in Ohio over the past two decades. However, the commitment to providing the best treatment for cancer patients will always remain a top priority. Legislation that recently passed the Ohio Senate will help cancer patients make decisions about their treatment based on what is best for their health, rather than solely on what they can afford. Senate Bill 99 would add Ohio to a list of 27 other states to pass what is called an “oral equity” policy. In essence, this policy puts cancer treatments that are taken orally on the same playing field as cancer treatments that are injected in a vein. However, cancer drugs injected into a vein are covered under most health insurance plans, whereas oral drugs are included as a pharmacy benefit, which are much more expensive. This results in patients paying thousands more dollars every month in co-payments to afford the oral drug. There are several health benefits to taking cancer-fighting drugs by mouth, including the fact that they typically target cancer cells more directly and have fewer side effects. It makes sense that oral treatments, which share the same goals but often with better results, are classified equally as intravenous drugs. Throughout the course of several committee hearings and substantial consideration, the bill has earned the support of a dozen Ohio hospitals, including the Cleveland Clinic, as well as the American Cancer Society. Specialists from the James Cancer Hospital here in Columbus offered their support for the legislation. They pointed out that, under the current format, patients often have to be in a hospital six to eight hours a day to receive IV treatments, whereas taking the drugs orally will save time of both the patients and medical staff at the hospital. As one pointed out, 30 percent of newly developed treatments are oral drugs, which have proven to be more effective. Despite all of this, it is still difficult for patients to have access to these drugs simply because most traditional medical plans do not cover them. With the expansion of technology showing no sign of slowing down,

COSHOCTON - “Many companies are trying to grow but do not succeed for various reasons.” If this is something your company has a problem with, you should attend the Here We Grow Again: Taking Your Business to the Next Level workshop. The workshop is from 9 a.m. to noon Thursday, May 29, at Central Ohio Technical College on Whitewoman Street. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. and will continue up to 9 a.m. at the start of the workshop. The workshop will be located in room 150, 200 II. This workshop is valued at $250. However, thanks to American Electric Power the cost to participate has been lowered to $20. The workshop will focus on “fundamental strategies for stabilizing, sustaining, and growing your business.” This will be an interactive workshop that is geared toward guiding the business leader in the evaluation of their own business in order to determine if their business is ready to grow on demand. The workshop will use the SBDC Growth Assessment to enable the business leader to examine areas such as organizational leadership, customer focus, and financial reporting. A review of universal business principles found in many high-preforming organizations will also be discussed throughout the day. Participants can expect to take away a substantial amount of gained knowledge from the workshop; the ability to position a business for growth, shift actions from reactive to proactive, acknowledge and fix previously unacknowledged issues critical to success, and the ability to develop a systematic review so that progress can be tracked on an annual basis.

adults ever adopted by the government.” In Coshocton County, nine county farmers together requested a county agent from the county commissioners on Oct. 8, 1918. These farmers included E.C. Darling, Bert Miskimens, G.T. Vensel, William Nethers, George Stonehocker, B.O. Stingel, T.K. Finley, George Gray and R.E. Wells. The commissioners voted two to one to appropriate $1,250 to support the salary of a “farm agent” for one year. Grover C. Musgrove began work in Coshocton County on Jan. 1, 1919. Musgrove was a county agent in Moundsville, WV and that local newspaper said the following of him “Mr. Musgrove was the ideal man that the farmers could find to get their organization started right… The Echo congratulates the people of Coshocton upon gaining a citizen of the talent and character of Mr. Musgrove.

Even before the Cooperative Extension Service formally began, land-grant universities were making efforts to educate the citizens of their states about agricultural topics. Ohio Agricultural Extension traveled by train all around the state of Ohio with agricultural exhibits to give on farm demonstrations from 1906-1913. In 1911 alone there were 16 trains that made 418 stops and reached more than 45,000 people with handson examples of farm practices. In 1910, the rural population was almost 54% of the total US population; today it is about 15%. In 1914 about 35% of Americans lived on a farm; now that number is a little over 1%. The Smith-Lever Act was signed in 1914 by President Woodrow Wilson. This increased the mission of land-grant universities to officially extend instruction beyond campuses. The president called it “one of the most significant and far-reaching measures for the education of

Following World War I, the agricultural market became a global market, and US agriculture found itself with competition. In response, Extension focused on helping farmers with economic concerns and efficiency in farming operations to improve overall quality of life. This was a time when many cooperatives were formed to gain purchasing advantages for supplies. In 1933 OSU Extension helped the nation to overcome the Great Depression through assistance with New Deal programs. This included price supports, production control, and bringing electricity to rural areas.

For more photos, visit BEACON PHOTO BY BETH SCOTT COSHOCTON - Hundreds of students had their knowledge of the environment and natural resources tested last week when Coshocton County hosted the OFSWCD Area 3 Envirothon on May 7, at the Muskingum Valley Scout Reservation. “It’s unique because they compete as a team,” said Deb Bigelow, program administrator of the Coshocton Soil & Water Conservation District. “It’s not just one person answering questions. They can talk and work together as a team.” There were 50 of those teams at the event and they were made up of students from high schools in Belmont, Carroll, Coshocton, Guernsey, Harrison, Jefferson, Knox, Licking, Morgan, Muskingum, Noble, Perry,

BY JOSIE SELLERS Tuscarawas and Washington counties. Coshocton County was represented in the contest by six teams. Two came from the Coshocton County Career Center, two from River View High School and two from Ridgewood High School. Each team consisted of no more than five students from the same school and they rotated between five stations where they were given tests written by local resource people. The focus of the current environmental issue station changes each year and this year’s test was on sustainable local agriculture/locally grown. Emily Adams from OSU Extension Coshocton Co. and Marissa Mullett from Local Bounty worked together to create the test, which the students had 25 minutes to complete. “We racked our brains on topics like food labeling, who regulates the use of the term organic and farm practices like crop rotation,” Mullett said. She had the opportunity to compete in the contest while a student at Ridgewood High School. “It’s an opportunity to get out and practice what you are learning in class,” Mullett said. The other stations tested the students on soils, forestry, wildlife and aquatic ecology. “I hope this gives them a better understanding of the world around them,” Bigelow said. The envirothon also encourages cooperative decision making and team building. “Greg Waters, chairman of our board did this and says there are lifelong skills that he learned,” Bigelow said. “There are things these kids will take away from today and always remember.” The top four placing teams, which were from Tuscarawas, Licking and Jefferson counties, will compete at the Ohio Envirothon Monday and Tuesday, June 9-10, at Salt Fork State Park. “This is a great opportunity for them (the students) to come out and show their knowledge of environmental issues,” said Zach Wallace from the Coshocton Soil & Water Conservation District office.

Relay For Life continues to grow COSHOCTON - Coshocton County has a lot of dedicated Relay For Life teams and at least one new one joined the list this year. The 19th Annual Coshocton County Relay For Life will be held Friday and Saturday, May 16-17, at the Coshocton County Fairgrounds and Team Patiwac will be there joining the fight against Cancer. The team consists of family, friends and coworkers of Patty Baylor. Valerie Miller is captain of the team and Phil Hunt is co-captain. Patty’s husband Jim works with Miller at Miller Funeral Home and she works at PNC Bank with Hunt. “She’s had an ongoing battle with breast cancer,” Miller said. “She was diagnosed in 2002, did radiation and chemo and was in remission for five and a half years, but the cancer came back in 2008. It metastasized and she’s been battling it ever since then.” The team’s name was inspired by Patty’s incense plate, which says “Patiwac” and it’s logo is a frog because she has collected them for years. “We wanted our team to be inspired by the things she loves,” Miller said.

There are currently 25 people on the team and together they have raised roughly $3,000. “Our goal was $2,500, but we exceeded that by the April meeting,” Miller said. “I’m really proud of everyone.” Patty also is a member of the team. “It’s very uplifting for her,” Miller said. “She’s so excited and humbled by how everyone has pulled together.” Patty was totally blown away that they wanted to do this for her. “You know they are behind you, but this just makes you feel great,” she said. People from all across the United States have gotten behind Team Patiwac. “We have a daughter out in Arizona and she put it out on her Facebook and we have relatives basically all over the U.S. so I got on and told them to check it (the team) out,” Patty said. “Everybody here in town also has been awesome.” In addition to helping Team Patiwac raise funds, she also has been continuing her fight against cancer. “I just got a report Thursday that there was

BY JOSIE SELLERS nothing new and nothing had grown,” Patty said. “It attacked me and I’m going to fight back and do everything in my power to overcome it.” The support of loved ones also has helped her stay positive. “It’s the great love of my husband, three children and six grandchildren that keeps me going,” Patty said. Miller hopes Team Patiwac will be back again next year and Patty also would love to see that. “There are so many different types of cancer,” Patty said. “We really need to conquer it and it’s great to see the county come together and try to do that. What we make here is just awesome. It’s unbelievable.” JOSIE@COSHOCTONCOUNTYBEACON.COM

COLUMBUS - May is National Bike Month, and what better way to celebrate than joining the first Honor Ride Ohio on Saturday, May 24. Grab a friend and ride beside America’s healing heroes. More than one million veterans have been injured in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, according to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. So, a day on your bike will help injured veterans improve their health and wellness through individual and group cycling programs at military bases around the U.S. Generously supported by Mission Essential and Healthy New Albany, the First annual Honor Ride Ohio in the Columbus area is a self-paced, noncompetitive cycling event open to all veterans and the general public. It is an inspiring event where riders cycle alongside America’s healing heroes while raising funds and awareness for Ride 2 Recovery. As a 501(c)3, R2R aids in the recovery of injured veterans through individual and group cycling programs at military bases and Veterans Administration hospitals around the country. The programs help injured veterans heal through the challenge of cycling, over a variety of distances, using hand cycles, recumbent cycles, tandems and traditional road bikes. Ride 2 Recovery also hosts seven long-distance challenge cycling events each year. Funds raised during Honor Ride Ohio support these programs and the equipment donated to each healing hero participating in the events, including bikes that require modification due to injuries. Ride 2 Recovery’s major sponsors include UnitedHealthcare, Heritage Bags, Raleigh Bicycles, USO, United Airlines, U-Haul, Macy’s, Rudy Project and Saris Racks. The Honor Ride Ohio is a self-paced, non-competitive cycling event open to all veterans and the general public. On May 24, riders will have two route options – 35 or 70 miles – that wind through scenic New Albany, Granville and other local communities. Both rides start and finish at 8 a.m. at New Albany Plain Local High School, 161 and Market Street, New Albany, OH 43054. Three veteran riders will join the first Honor Ride Ohio: • Army Veteran Colin Busse, New Albany, completed two tours of duty in Afghanistan. He found in R2R the ability to be competitive again and be with like-minded individuals. • Army Veteran Nathan Rowe, Sugarcreek, spent 14 months in Kuwait when his tour was interrupted with a diagnosis of liver cancer. He’s been on the road to recovery with Ride 2 Recovery ever since. • Former Marine Hunter Stoneking of Kent, did tours in Haiti in 2004 and Iraq in 2005. Hunter was not a cyclist until more recently when he was battling some issues from being overseas. He was riding his bike to school and happened to stop by Portage Cyclery, owned by a veteran, and has been cycling ever since. Participants can pick up their registration packets from 3 to 6 p.m. Friday, May 23, at Veloscience Bikeworks, 220 Market Street, New Albany. Packet pick-up on Saturday, May 24, is between 6:45 and 7:45 a.m. at New Albany Plain Local High School. Registration includes an event shirt, fully stocked rest stops, SAG support, finishing medal and lunch. There is no cost for injured veterans. The general public of all ages is invited to ride; a portion of the registration fee is tax-deductible. Individuals teams of five or more will cost: $65 pre-registration; $75 day of ride; $55 pre-registration; $65 day of ride.

Simmons also wants to teach them how to play the Cajon as well. Brian Gross has been out helping set up equipment for the festival all week. This is his first year helping with Dogwood, but he enjoys helping because he can listen to all of the different schools. “They all have their different sounds” Gross said.

COSHOCTON - The Ridgewood High School Jazz Band and Chorale participated in the annual Dogwood festival on Thursday, May 9. The chorale sang various songs ranging from a Backstreet Boys throw back, to the song Radioactive by Imagine Dragons, and more classical selections. Ridgewood Chorale has been participating in Dogwood since before current choir director Haley Evans, began singing in Ridgewood’s concert choir. This is Evans third year as the Director of the Ridgewood Choir. “I like to come out and sing to people we wouldn’t normally see and brave the elements” Evans said. “I have a great group of students.” Ridgewood Chorale has been working on the day’s song selection for a wide range of time. Some of the songs were practiced for contests that have already happened, while some were practiced for only two rehearsals. Evans looks forward to the Annual Ridgewood Spring Concert. The choir featured many students: Kylie Art, Nick Blakley, Jacob Panteloukas, Veronica Roberts, Kaylee Schoepe, and Evan Youker were among some of the students featured. The crowd was full of guests ready to support the choir and the festival. Much of the crowd was past graduates of Ridgewood High School who had children, grandchildren, or nieces and nephews in the choir. Some had even been a part of choir or marching band during their years as a student at Ridgewood. Two of the crowd members were sisters who came to celebrate Mother’s Day by enjoying the music and fresh air. Denise Gallagher was one of those sisters. She came to watch her niece Katie Gallagher. Katie Gallagher has been in choir since junior high. Denise Gallagher was in choir during her high school years as well. Watching the Concert Choir sing brought back many memories for her. “In girls’ choir we got to perform at different meeting in the community,” she said. Her favorite part of the choir years were the solo and ensemble contests.

Friends of Waggoner Cemetery Keene students earn reading Memorial Services set award




Coshocton Hospital announces plans to close obstetrical unit CONTRIBUTED TO THE BEACON

KEENE - Bailee Cass likes spooky books like “Son of Slappy” from the Goosebumps series. This was just one of the many books students in Stephanie Kopec’s fourth grade class read that helped them win an award from Pizza Hut for their participation in its Book It program. The students more than 227,494 minutes of reading this school year earned them the privilege of being one of the top 100 participants in the program, which about 40,000 schools across the nation take part in. They also were the first ever in Central Ohio to receive this award. “I did this as extra incentive for them to read,” Kopec said. “Reading is so very important at this age because they are working on comprehension and either get it or don’t. This was an extra push to help them and get them to like to read.” Michaela White enjoyed reading the Seekers Series to help her class build up minutes. “It’s fantasy,” she said. “It’s about bears and their journey all over the world.” The Percy Jackson series also was popular with Kopec’s students. “I liked it because of the quests they go on,” said Jillian Stamper. Alex Griffith also liked it, but for a different reason. “It had action in it,” he said. Of all the reading she did “BFG” stood out the most for Izzy Murray. “It stands for Big Friendly Giant and is about a giant who blows dreams into children’s rooms at night,” she said. Kopec is very proud of all of her students. “They didn’t expect this to happen,” she said. “I couldn’t make them read, but many of them would read an extra hour. They love to read and that’s what’s important.” Pizza Hut will celebrate the student’s accomplishments with a pizza party and by hanging a banner in their honor at the Second Street restaurant. Principal Matt Colvin is excited for the fourth graders and the fifth and sixth graders who won an award for a computer programming project. “Our kids work hard and they come from good hardworking families,” he said. “The teachers also have high expectations for the students and they buy into that. They know we care about them and these awards confirm that hard work does pay off.” The ice cream and pizza they earned for reading were great incentives, but the students also are very aware of the fact that what they are learning now will help them in life. “You have to know how to read,” Stamper said. “You have to read signs when you drive and you even read when you are in the grocery store.” JOSIE@COSHOCTONCOUNTYBEACON.COM

COSHOCTON - Projections of a continued shift toward an aging population in the region, the demand for health care services to meet the needs of an older population, and consistently declining obstetrics (OB) volumes are the driving factors that led to Coshocton Hospital’s recent decision to close the obstetrics (OB) unit, “The Birthing Centre,” on June 27, 2014. The hospital will further develop their women’s care programs, but will no longer provide childbirth services. For the safety of expectant mothers and babies, extensive education and training will be provided for the nursing staff in the event of an emergency delivery. The decision follows an extensive analysis of patient volumes, market share trends, and the economics of continuing to provide obstetrical care in a declining market. Coshocton Hospital currently delivers 36 percent of the babies in their market area, with 275 deliveries in 2012 and 227 deliveries in 2013. During the past several years, the hospital experienced significant financial losses as a result of the declining volume. “In a county where 51 percent of the population is age 40 or older and only 15 percent of women are of childbearing age, we have determined that we can no longer continue to provide the delivery component of women’s services” stated Lorri S. Wildi, Interim CEO. “The existing space will allow us to further develop programs and services to meet the broader needs of women in our community.” The hospital is developing plans to ensure pre-natal care continues to be offered in Coshocton. Muskingum Valley Health Center (MVHC) is committed to helping with this effort. They are also currently working with the staff of the Coshocton Hospital Women’s Care Clinic to help pregnant mothers through pre-natal care to delivery at other hospitals. “We understand the impact of this decision on the families within our communities but must look toward planning for growth in programs that will serve our changing population with a hospital that continues to be a vital part of this community,” said Wildi. “We also recognize the impact that will be felt by our employees who have provided care for our mothers and babies, and will be working with them over the next few weeks to identify available positions and opportunities.”

It’s a time to come together and catch up and see people we don’t normally get to see.” One nurse who attended the event was Carma Overholt, who is 93 years old and graduated from the former Coshocton City Hospital School of Nursing that was chartered in 1925 by the American Medical Society. The last graduating class was in 1947. Overholt graduated in 1942 and made $0.50 an hour when she graduated. Her first job was in private duty but she also worked in surgery and in the office. She remembers a lot about the former School of Nursing but remembers the life-long friendships she made while attending there the most. “I have a lot of memories,” she said. “But people are what make the world go around. I have never regretted making friends. There are so many things in life you can’t change, but the people you meet become your life. I have never regretted what you can do for others and that’s the satisfaction you get out of life.”

BY BETH SCOTT Donna Baumgardner worked at the Coshocton Hospital for 30 years. Now retired, she worked mostly in surgery and outpatient. “Back in those days, women could either be a teacher, a secretary, or a nurse,” she said. “My mother thought nursing was a good choice for me and I think she was right. I still miss it.” Before refreshments were served, a poem was read dedicated to nurses. The names of nurses who had recently passed away were read and a moment of silence was observed. Jim Wiandt, CRNA, gave a brief speech on the importance of nurses at the bedside. “Therapists go home, the lab goes home, even the families go home,” he said. “Who’s left to care for that patient? We are. I think we all need to be proud of the fact that we stay at the bedside. We are the bedside specialists.” Stephanie Conn, chief of nursing, commented on the many services that nurses provide to the community. “We always want to celebrate the contribution nurses and caregivers provide for our patients,” she said. “Nursing combines a science mind with a servant’s heart. We’re celebrating the unique work our nurses provide for the community.” BETH@COSHOCTONCOUNTYBEACON.COM

planned Mobile market to make monthly visits to Coshocton Traffic blitz CONTRIBUTED TO THE BEACON

VOLUNTEERS Volunteers turned out to help The MidOhio Food Bank Community Mobile Market distribute free food to those who are eligible. BEACON PHOTO BY JOSIE SELLERS COSHOCTON – The Mid-Ohio Food Bank Community Mobile Market made its first of hopefully many more trips to Canal Lewisville United Methodist Church last week. “They were looking for another site in Coshocton County and we have the perfect set up here,” said Michelle Darner from the church. “They also come to the senior center, but this one will be for anyone in the county.” The Community Mobile Market is a refrigerated truck which brings items such as fresh produce, eggs, milk, bread, etc. Participants

BY JOSIE SELLERS are invited to shop for free and will need to bring their own bags to carry items home. Darner was hoping they could help 100 people during the mobile market’s first stop at the church. “We’ve helped 83 so far,” she said. “This is a wonderful ministry for our church.” The mobile market is for individuals and families who live in Coshocton County and meet income guidelines, which are: For one in the household - $1,914 per month; for two in the household - $2,584 per month; and for each additional member, add $670. “You do not have to show proof of income,” Darner said. “If you sign your name to the sheet you are proving you qualify.” Volunteers from the church and the community pitched in to help shoppers gather up groceries to take home. “I was impressed by the quantity of items,” Jayna Sturtz said. “There were so many things to choose from and everyone who took something was very grateful and thankful. I hope it grows.” She was volunteering alongside Teresa McGuire. “It was rewarding to help people,” McGuire said. “We invite more people to come next time.” The Community Mobile Market will be the first Wednesday of each month from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Call 622-3977 for information.

His Eagle Scout project involved building benches and spreading mulch for the West Lafayette First Baptist Church.

Undergraduates present at national conference



“I’m always impressed with the quality of work produced by our students,” said Jim Weeks, Senior Lecturer at Ohio State Newark. “Any opportunity we can get to offer them wider exposure only helps them in their post-graduate career, be it grad school or on the job market.” One of the benefits of presenting at NCUR is the opportunity for students to publish their work in the conference “Proceedings”, produced annually by the University of North Carolina at Asheville and distributed to institutions across the nation, increasing the exposure of the students’ research. NCUR, established in 1987, promotes undergraduate research, scholarship and creative activity in all fields of study for faculty and students at all institutions serving undergraduate students. NCUR believes that faculty members enhance their teaching and contribution to society by remaining active in research and by involving undergraduates in research.

Voters give support to city levy COSHOCTON - City officials had smiles on their faces at the end of election day, but the Coshocton County Joint Vocational School District staff was left still hoping for the best. The City of Coshocton’s 2.4 mills five year levy for repair and maintenance of the roads passed with 878 voters saying yes and 639 saying no. “I want to say thank you to all the voters who supported this levy,” said City of Coshocton Mayor Steve Mercer. “This will give us the chance to make a five year plan for road care.” He also greatly appreciated the citizen committee that worked on sharing information about this levy with city residents. “Last time it was pretty much me (sharing information), but this time we had a citizens committee to raise money to put the message out there,” Mercer said. By the end of election night 1,937 voters said

yes to the JVS 1 mill permanent improvement levy and 1,926 said no, but a small number of votes from precincts that touched school districts in Licking, Tuscarawas, and Guernsey counties still had to be figured into their total. “When those votes came in, there was not enough to win,” said Deborah Kapp-Salupo, superintendent of the district. “We were down by 25 votes, but 27 ballots have not been counted yet here in the county.” They are checking to see if other counties have any more ballots that have not been counted. “We are so close and the one thing I want to say is we appreciate the incredible increase in the level of support the community showed us this time,” Kapp-Salupo said. There is a potential for a recount, but more information won’t be available until Wednesday, May 21. If the levy doesn’t pass, it may go back on the ballot in November. However, if it does pass it will be good for five years and help with necessary upgrades for the building and equipment the students use. It also will enable the school to address security and transportation issues. Other key election results include: - Jefferson Township Tax Levy - 122 for and 79 against - Village of West Lafayette Tax Levy - 135 against and 125 for - Walhonding Valley Fire District Tax Levy 364 for and 246 against - Wal-Mart Liquor Option - 68 against and 53 for JOSIE@COSHOCTONCOUNTYBEACON.COM
