Scheetz Drive-Thru offers numerous items and a farmers market BY JOSIE McCORMICK

Do you need to pick up some bread, milk or even dog food? If you are in the neighborhood of State Route 36, stop at Scheetz Drive-Thru to grab these items and fill up your gas tank. Scheetz Drive-Thru has more to offer than you might think. You can pull up to get snacks, pop, beer and wine, livestock feed, dog and cat food, freezer beef, fresh brown eggs, gas, on and off road diesel and kerosene, water softener salt and even seasonal plants. Starting Friday, May 25, it also will offer Market 36, a place for people to sale their baked goods, crafts, fresh produce and various other items. “We thought it would get more traffic here and help the drive-thru,” said Christy Scheetz, who owns the business with her husband Dwaine. Christy and Dwaine also thought Market 36 would give people a place to sale their own specialties. “We’ve had customers contact us and want us to sale their baked goods and such, but this way they can do it on their own and we can show people what we have to offer,” Dwaine said. Market 36 will be held from 2:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Fridays in the parking lot of Scheetz Drive-Thru. “Fridays are one of the nights we are open later and they are also typically busier for us,” Dwaine said. “We also thought doing it on Fridays would give people a chance to get fresh produce and baked good for their family events on the weekends.” Space for Market 36 is on a first come, first served basis. Reservation cost is by donation. “We don’t want to make a profit on someone else,” Christy said. “We just want to bring the traffic here so in the end we are helping each other.” To learn more about Market 36 or the drive-thru, call 622-9063. “We want to be a convenient stop for people,” Christy said. “You can pick up whatever you need here so you don’t have to make a second stop. We are also open to suggestions. Scheetz Drive-Thru is open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday; and closed on Sundays. It is located at 46473 State Route 36. JOSIE@COSHOCTONCOUNTYBEACON.COM

Michael Adams, a four year letter winner in baseball for River View, signed his letter of intent to play baseball for Wheeling Jesuit University May 11, at the high school with his parents, Angie and Todd Adams, Grandpa Denny Adams, coaches and school administrators proudly watching. Adams, who was also a multi-year letter winner in basketball for the Bears, helped lead the Bears to an ECOL Gray division title this year, with a record of 20-8. Adams, who pitched for River View, has always loved baseball. Mom Angie said, “It feels really good to see this today. I’ve watched him come all the way from little league through the ranks, he’s a dedicated diehard for baseball. He’s getting his wish to play college baseball. He’s lived, ate, slept and breathed baseball since he’s been 2-yearsold. I remember when he was little – and I was pregnant with his brother – I was pitching to him and he was outside hitting balls on the cow field because he just loved the game.” Michael said, “It’s a proud day for my career. I’ve got my wish over the last four years – it’s always been what I wanted to do – to play college baseball. It means everything to my high school career to win the title this year. It’s a nice way to end here at River View. It’s hard to leave this place – especially after the last two years – the fun we had and the program we built up, it’s the most fun I’ve had playing baseball the past two years. It’s pretty hard for me.” I’m going to miss my teammates, but it’s time for me to move on and it’s their time to shine. I’m looking to contribute athletically as soon as I can for the (Wheeling Jesuit) baseball team.” “I’d like to thank my parents and coaches. They’ve put up with me for the past four years day in and day out, whether it’s basketball or baseball. I wouldn’t be here today if it wasn’t for them.” And my grandparents have been there as well, even after last night’s loss, Grandma hugged me and told me she loved me. They’re pretty special.” Adams is not certain of his degree program as of yet. River View varsity baseball coach Jesse Smoulder, who is in his first year at the helm, said of Adams, “It’s an absolutely big day. First, he’s a quality individual. I’ve enjoyed working with him – he’s put in a lot of hard work and effort. He’s a special player talent wise – but also a special person. When you come in contact with those people you just kind of want to enjoy them and learn from them. He definitely deserves this and everything he gets.” “The seniors were great leaders this year – they showed our younger guys how to work, how to approach the game – we said all year it was how we handled our business on the field. It helped to have four seniors back who wanted it.”

Dollars for Scholars doles out awards BY MARK FORTUNE

May 18th, 1952 More than 500 people, mostly school children, had benefitted from the Coshocton Lion’s Club Sight Conservation Program since it began in 1949. The program was for children whose parents could not afford for their children to receive eye exams. If the child required the care of an optometrist due to eye sight difficulties, the Lion’s Club would pay for the exam and treatment. Both the city and county health departments endorsed the Lion’s Club Sight Program, saying that the program had been a great aid too children throughout the county.


A total of over $74,000 in awards sponsored by area organizations, clubs, individuals and families were presented to 138 area seniors at a ceremony held May 8, at the Coshocton County Career Center. The award checks were made out to the respective senior’s college and students received their awards as family members applauded their endeavors. Punch and cookies were served following the ceremony. Maureen Siegrist, Awards Committee Chair for the Coshocton County Chapter, said in her remarks, “I want to express a special thanks to all the sponsors who have given to Dollars for Scholars year after year. I want to thank all of

May 21st, 1972 Coshocton High’s track team added the finest trophy they had ever won to their collection by winning the Eastern District Track Title. The Redskins win came down to the final event, The Mile Relay. The burden fell on four Coshocton boys to win it: Scott Hutz, Drew Parkhill, Keith Metz, and Tim Sisler. They wasted no time setting a district record of 3:25.9. The event gave Coshocton the needed points to score a total of 75, with the second place score at 71 by Shadyside. Sisler was the only one at the meet to win more than one event. He took first in both the 100 yard dash and the 220. Several Redskins also qualified for state.

May 16th, 1962 After trying on Cinderella’s slipper, Irene Pachuta was crowned queen of the Sacred Heart junior-senior banquet and prom, along with Bob Watson, who was crowned king. The theme for the evening was “The Cinderella Ball” and the gymnasium was decorated with royal colors of red, gold, and purple with red and white snapdragons as centerpieces. Miniature fairy godmothers and slippers were given away as favors and the stage had been decorated to resemble a throne room. Thirtysix couples attended the dance.

I also want to express my gratitude to Stan Zurowski, Sandy Randles, Marsha Cusin, Jim Eckelberry, Jan Luce and Dick Baker along with all of the guidance counselors for the hard work you provide each year to make this ceremony happen.” Siegrist made special mention in memory of Pat Robinson, who passed away at the end of 2011. Robinson served as President of the organization and was a big supporter of Dollars for Scholars. Dick Baker, who has been involved with Dollars for Scholars for 39 years said, “To me, it’s a unique privilege to be a part of it. We’ve given out over a million dollars in the 39 years I’ve been involved and it all goes to the kids of our county. It’s for their education, which is important for our county and for these students. It’s great to see the number of people that are here; we have a lot of fine, young adults in the county. You just feel that you’re doing something good with this program. We have some kids that after they graduate from college give an award out and that is the most gratifying thing.

market needs. For more information regarding the Fresno Farmers’ Market, call me, Julia Brown at 545-0849 or Mark McCoy at 545-0997 anytime. Submitted & Written by: Julia Brown for the Fresno Farmers’ Market

We look forward to meeting all of your farm

eggs. To this, add a pinch of salt, pepper to taste, 1\4 cup milk, 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, and a nice fresh bunch of tender spinach rinsed thoroughly, patted dry and chopped. Transfer onions and bacon to egg mixture and stir well.


Sustainability: What does this word mean to you or me? To me, it is a way to provide the basic essentials for my family, when commercial methods fail. What are the basics...water, food, heat, shelter, all of these immediately come to mind. But what about the ways or methods used to supply those needs. That’s all the more reason to get involved and support all of your local Farmers’ Markets. To me, knowing the source behind where and by whom my food is grown is of major importance to me and my family. Your vendors at the Fresno Farmers’ Market are more than experienced and capable of doing just that. Local homegrown and homemade items await you to be discovered every Saturday morning from 8 a.m. until noon in downtown Fresno, Ohio. I had a young lady ask me, “Why is there still dirt on this spinach?” My reply, “I just picked it an hour ago.” Isn’t that the freshness that you are looking for to provide to your family? I would rather wash the dirt off of it myself and know where it came from, than have had it handle by 12 other sets of hands before it arrived to my table already cleaned. The quality and freshness you will find at the Fresno Market is something that your vendors take pride in, from the time they push the seed into the earth, until the time it is harvested. That is what sustainability really is. From farm fresh justlaid brown eggs, to homemade white and wheat breads and homemade noodles, fresh baked donuts, cookies, angel food cake, homemade granola, jams, jellies, Amish fried pies and the list goes on. Also, there is a nice selection of hand crafted items as well: decorative solar yard lights, bird baths, fragrant hand poured soy candles, herbal lotions, hand sewn tea towels, floral arrangements and more. There truly is something for everybody to be discovered at the Fresno Market. Not only are your vendors gifted with talent for their personal skill or trade, they are also a wealth of knowledge regarding gardening, baking, nutrition and wide range of other subject. Want the answer to a gardening question? Just ask. Our goal is to not only “bring the farm to your family’s table”, but to equip you with the skills to be self-sustainable on your own. To become a vendor at the Fresno Market, simply arrive on Saturday morning and set up. There is no vendor space fee, only a “good faith” donation is asked. Here is a recipe of mine that is a great way to use some of the ingredients that you’ll find at the market:

It’s having a feeling of accomplishment and setting goals, and yes, having dreams; learning how to meet those goals and helping others to achieve their own. Most importantly it’s about involvement, no matter how big or small, and learning an idea that starts small can often times achieve great things.

Coshocton High School senior Lucas Dunlap is headed to Walsh University to play soccer, but the road there wasn’t easy. He finished a career with a group of seniors that won the most games in school history for Coshocton boys soccer, but has had a difficult spring recovering from an ankle injury sustained just before the district final. Lucas, who has played soccer year round for 11 years, spent the last six months working on his physical therapy and not being allowed to do anything soccer related. “I didn’t realize the extent of Lucas injury at the time,” said high school coach and father Brian Dunlap. “We iced it and taped it up and had him go back in. He had a tremendous district final (four assists) and I felt really inspired his teammates who knew he was injured and wasn’t himself. He continued to play two more games on it as the team was on a mission to get to the state final four, but ended with a loss in the regional finals. After a decorated high school career, where the coaches voted him ECOL and East District POY as well as first team All-Ohio and the NSCAA High School Boys All Region IV team, the timing of his injury was a little difficult for coaches to see him play. After much deliberation, and a meeting with Walsh University Coach Joe Hall, Lucas has chosen to pursue his college career at Division II Walsh University this fall. He signed his letter this week.

Scones to succulents and geraniums to fresh greens. The farmers’ market is back! There was a very nice selection of garden plants and flowers to suit everyone’s taste last week at the Coshocton Farmers’ Market. Fresh baked goods, honey, cutting boards, soaps, air fresheners and eggs filled the booths. There were gourd bird houses, ice cream and some fresh hot coffee. This week we hope for even more vendors and shoppers to show up (and maybe a few less clouds). Bring your friends! Enjoy visiting with neighbors that you don’t see so often! Grab some breakfast while you’re there and have a great start to your weekend fun. This recipe comes from The Rhubarb Compendium: Gingered Rhubarb Crisp 2½ to 3 pounds fresh rhubarb 4 lumps “ginger in syrup” or crystallized ginger, about ¾-inch diameter 1 cup sugar 3 tbsp. cornstarch Crumb topping: 1 cup flour 1 cup sugar



OSU Extension office says hello and good-bye to employees RETIREMENT


Jan Luce visits with guest during her retirement party May 11, at the Frontier Power meeting room. She retired from the Ohio State University Extension Office after 31 years of service. BEACON



MAY 16, 2012

BY JOSIE McCORMICK The Ohio State University Extension office recently welcomed Emily Adams and said goodbye to Jan Luce. A reception was held May 8, to welcome Adams as the new Agriculture/Natural Resource (ANR) Educator for Coshocton County and the County Extension Director (CED) and one was held May 11 to celebrate the retirement of Luce. “I’m looking forward to meeting a lot of the farmers in the area,” Adams said. “I grew up here, but I’m sure a lot has changed in the 15 years I’ve been gone. I’m also looking forward to getting back in the agriculture community and seeing how I can help.” She is a graduate of River View High School and The Ohio State University. Her parents are Bob and the late Beverley Buxton and she is married to Ryan Adams, who also grew up in Coshocton County. “Family also had a lot to do with me coming

back,” Emily said. “We (Ryan and I) have two little children and want them to have the life we did growing up.” Emily will take over the ANR/CED position from Paul Golden who served from 1978 to his retirement in 2007. Golden, Associate Professor Emeritus, came out of retirement on a part-time returning retiree basis in April 2010. Golden will stay on until the end of May to assist Emily with the transition process. “He has a lot of wisdom because he’s been here such a long time,” she said. “I respect that experience.” Luce also has a lot of experience with the Ohio State University Extension Office. She was with the office for 31 years and served as the 4-H program coordinator. “I’m going to miss the children and all the great people that helped out,” Luce said. “I’m honored that parents shared their children with me.” Her retirement party gave her a chance to catch up with a lot of old friends.

“This means a lot to me,” Luce said. “People have come that I haven’t seen in years and I also got cards from people I haven’t seen in years.” Now that she’s retired, Luce plans to spend some time catching up on projects at home, sewing, traveling and watching her grandchildren show hogs. “I can go to all the hog shows, watch the whole thing and just relax,” she said.

Students participate in Kent State’s entrepreneur workshop CONTRIBUTED TO THE BEACON

Three Coshocton County Career Center seniors, all student ambassadors, got the chance to participate in a local workshop hosted by the Coshocton Port Authority and conducted by Kent State University’s Small Business Development Center. The event, attended by several community members, took place April 13, at COTC’s Coshocton Campus. The workshop was offered to members of the business community or to others who might be interested in creating a business designed to cater to the emerging oil and gas industry, and the direct and ancillary businesses predicted to grow exponentially through that industry, in the coming months and years. Joe Belinsky, Business Advisor at the SBDC, facilitated the six-hour session. Twenty-three interested attendees preregistered for the workshop, which was offered free-of-charge. After sharing some facts surrounding the growth of the oil and gas industry, as it has

grown and expanded east of the state, the group divided into six teams. Each team was tasked with creating an idea for a new business that would cater to workers in this emerging industry. Each business concept was then presented and plans were discussed relative to moving the concept forward into a full-blown business plan. That’s where KSU’s Small Business Development Center might come into

play. It provides resources to people looking to validate their business concept, create a sound financial plan, and then securing funding for it. Each of the Career Center students worked in a different brainstorming team, and each contributed to the formation of a new business idea.

Train car donated to Coshocton Christian Tabernacle scrap metal drive After Pastor Jason Diaz jokingly made a comment about someone mowing their yard and finding a car to donate to the Coshocton Christian Tabernacle scrap metal drive he received a phone call about an even bigger item. Derek Brown, a member of the church, wanted to donate a train car in the yard that belonged to his late father, Philip Brown. “He was the ultimate rail fan,” Derek said. “It’s been in the yard since 1982. I think dad would like the fact that money from it is going to the church and being used for a bus.”
