In Memory of my dear sister Nancy K. Jones

Thank You

She was my baby sister, that’s what she would tell me. She would call and say “What are you doing?” an hour later she would call and say “What are you doing now?” No one but God knows how much I miss you. She was beautiful inside and out.

I would like to thank everyone who sent flowers, cards, made phone calls, and visited the funeral home when my sister Nancy K. Jones passed away. Thanks to Dr. Carver, the nurses on 4th floor and the nurses in I.C.U., Given Dawson Funeral Home, Pall-Bearers. Thanks to Rev. Don Lain, Pastor Joy Blaney and Barry Hardesty for singing. The Nazarene Church for the lunch, Ivan Ford for releasing the dove at the cemetery.

West Lafayette Junior Guild celebrates 70th anniversary The West Lafayette Junior Guild club celebrated their 70th anniversary at the Coshocton Elks Lodge on Tuesday, May 18, with a luncheon. All but one member was able to make it for the celebratory dinner, including one charter member, Mickey Colton, who joined the club when she was 18 and celebrated her 88th birthday the day after the celebration. The West Lafayette Junior Guild started in May 1940. At first, they were a federation club, but later decided to drop the federation and begin using that money more wisely here in the county. At first, the club had around 25 members and they took turns meeting at each member’s homes. Apparently, there were so many people wanting to join the club that they even had a waiting list to get in. The club is active in the community, especially with the library. Mickey Colton said she remembers when they helped move the library to its current location on the corner of Main and 7th. They also help with the display cases in the library and purchase Books on Tape/ CD for the library. The club is also active in the schools and with the fire department and the Red Cross. They have also donated to the Presidential Classroom program and the Roscoe Recreation. Long ago, they used to have a float in the Homecoming Parade every year. Back then, Mickey remembers they were made with chicken wire and napkins. She said she remembers one

year, the theme of their float was “Tie a Yellow Ribbon ‘Round the Old Oak Tree”. They had one hundred yellow ribbons on the float. She said she knew for a fact there were one hundred ribbons on that float because she tied all of them on. When asked about her favorite memory so far, Mickey said, “The good fellowship and friendship. We were always willing to help out and pitch in. We’ve had a lot of fun, a lot of funny things that have happened.”

The club has 14 members and is always looking for new members. They especially want to get some of the younger women involved. The oldest member is 92 years old and the youngest is in her 60s. Mickey says the club hasn’t changed much over the years. She says she remembers talking to the other women about getting married and having children. Now, she says, all they talk about are having operations and how many pills they have to take. “We hang together,” she said, “You’d be amazed at when you get a bunch of women together what you can share with each other.” This luncheon was the last meeting of the season for the club. They will resume their meetings in September.

Local Food Summit offered Most people have heard of the local foods movement. According to Cindy BondZielinski, OSU Extension Educator Community Development, “Developing local foods systems can be seen as a strategy for sustainable community and economic development. The idea is to create more locally based self-reliant food economies.” This is part of a larger idea about sustainability, that sustainable local food systems are better for public health, the environment, and the local economy. A Local Foods Summit is being offered by Ohio State University Extension on Friday, June 4 from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. at the Kent State University Tuscarawas Campus, New Philadelphia. Participants will have a choice of attending nine sessions. The goals of the summit include learning more about local foods and having questions answered by a variety of experts in the field. The program is designed for the potential entrepreneur as well the consumer. One of the benefits of local foods is the

appeal of a fresher and a less processed food. Local foods are also seen as better for the environment as less fossil fuels are consumed in transporting them. Furthermore, local food systems emphasize smaller-scale farms that employ more sustainable farming methods. The local food movement is also viewed as a way to strengthen local economies by supporting family farms and keeping money circulating in the community. Furthermore, the components of a strong local food economy such as farmer’s markets, community gardens, grocery stores and restaurants that feature local foods can be seen as amenities attractive to the creative class. Advance registration and a $10 registration fee are required to attend the Local Foods Summit. To register for the Food Summit or for more information, please contact the OSU Extension, Guernsey County office at 740-4895300 or go to the website at The registration deadline is May 28.

Extension Office layoffs suspended

Paul Golden, County OSU Extension Director, has announced that in order to fulfill the intent of remaining engaged with the community in all four program areas to the maximum extent possible based on resources available, a decision has been made to suspend the current reduction in force (RIF) of two (2) part time office support staff. Golden stated, “We feel it is better for all our clientele, and especially our 4-H youth, that there is a more productive educational experience this summer and fall. Although one-full time support staff member had been previously eliminated, all staff RIF’s will be coordinated so that they will occur by mid-November 2010. At that point, all appropriated County funds for 2010 and available “carryover” financial resources to support the educational programs will be completely exhausted. Without additional financial support from the County Board of Commissioners or the revenue generated by a tax levy this November, all four Extension program areas will be discontinued”.

be during the fire at the Buckeye Fabricators building back in 1975. That was the fire where Chief Hale was killed. REACT volunteers came in and shut down that whole neighborhood so the firefighters could take care of the fire.” REACT has been going strong ever since. Currently the all-volunteer group has 45 members. The memorial park is dedicated to the memory of the many Coshocton County REACT members who are deceased. Fourteen names were read during the ceremony and family members present could place a flower at the memorial for their loved one. Michelle Carpenter placed a carnation at the monument in memory of her father, Jack Carpenter (RE9). “My father was one of the charter members,” said Carpenter. “He enjoyed all his time with REACT and would be really proud of all they’ve done.” The other deceased members who were remembered include Richard Cummings (RE13), Paul H. Ruble (RE4), Harman Robinson (RE20), Harold J. Tracey (RE35), James H. Kaser (RE28), Robert A. Wood (RE48), Michael D. Holmes (RE43), Delmar R. Casey (RE7), Carl Fox (RE41), Arthur Jacobs (RE37), Gerald Jarvis (RE15), James P. Mercer (RE25) and James T. Brady (RE58). “Each of the radio numbers for these deceased members has been retired, so

we won’t ever use those same numbers again,” said Wise. “Once a REACT member, always a REACT member. I know all these guys are up there still taking care of details and traffic.” During the ceremony, Coshocton County Park Director, Lori Everhart, thanked REACT for their work at the park area and shared a bit of the history of the site. “This is the location of locks #1, 2 and 3 on the Walhonding Canal,” explained Everhart. “This 25-mile stretch of canal was a feeder canal to the Ohio and Erie Canal. It was primarily used by local farmers and was known as ‘25 miles to nowhere’.” Proclamations were read by Mayor Steve Mercer from the City of Coshocton and by Curtis Lee from the County Commissioners office. Both Mercer and Lee expressed gratitude for the many volunteer hours donated by REACT members working with traffic control and at numerous special events. Starky Lawrence, chaplain with the Coshocton Sheriff’s Department, also expressed gratitude to the volunteers as well as their families. “These guys have to leave family gatherings such as birthday parties and Christmas dinners when an emergency calls them out,” said


The dedication ceremony of the Coshocton County REACT Memorial Park was held Saturday, May 22. The park is located across from Triple Locks Theater on County Road 495 (N. Whitewoman ST.) near the basin where the three locks are located. The area is part of the County Park District. “We (REACT) got the idea for this memorial park when we were here a couple of years ago assisting with the parking for Apple Butter Stirrin,” explained Tim Wise, President of Coshocton REACT. “There were some ladies on a bus tour here that day and they decided to take a walk down to the basin and look around the park and they ended up falling into some poison ivy and briars. We thought right then that we ought to clean this area up.” Members of REACT worked with the Park District to outline the plans for the memorial park. “We called REACT work days at the park site over the past year and a half to clean up the area,” said Wise. “We’ll continue to maintain the park now as well.” REACT stands for Radio Emergency Association Citizen Team. The Coshocton organization was originally formed in 1963. Jim Rogers was one of the charter members. “There were just a handful of us then,” said Rogers. “Steve Dawson, the local undertaker, had the emergency service. Then there was Chuck Miskimens and Robbie Robinson who had wrecker services. There were also a few farmers involved. CB radios were just coming into the picture at that time and we all had them. We often had a greater coverage range with those radios than the Sheriff’s Department had at that time. We eventually bought radios for the Sheriff.” Rogers says that back then, it was hard for the Sheriff’s Department to see the value of REACT and so the organization fizzled out a bit until 1974 when Russ Grudier reorganized the group. “We would all listen to our scanners and just show up at emergency situations,” said Grudier. “The Sheriff really saw how useful we could

When the River View marching band went to state competition, they had a different reason for wanting to go home with a superior rating. A week prior to the competition, their beloved former assistant principal, Luther Stover died. They were not even sure they wanted to go, but they knew that Stover would want them to continue on. They took a superior rating and dedicated it to the memory of their late assistant principal. The competition was on Saturday and band members attended Stover’s funeral that Sunday.

All information was obtained from microfilm of the Coshocton Tribune at the Coshocton County Library.

When asked about the benefits for the local community, Williamson responded, “This is their amphitheater. We had the community in mind when we first thought of this.

We hope to get our community involved in that way. We want to make a place that is family friendly and affordable”.

Hopewell provides donation to America in Bloom Coshocton Hopewell Industries Hab Center presented a donation to the committee for America in Bloom Coshocton (ABC) this past Friday at Clary Gardens. The $500 donation was made possible through funds raised by Hopewell’s annual plant sale of hanging baskets and flats. “We are excited to be a part of America in Bloom and want to contribute,” said Diane Williams, Habiliation Manager at Hopewell Industries Hab Center. “We also recently planted a flower bed to get the building ready and are looking forward to the judges’ visit in June.” America in Bloom judges will be arriving on June 21 and 22 to evaluate the City of Coshocton in 8 categories: floral displays, landscaped areas, environmental effort, community involvement, turf and ground cover, heritage preservation, urban forestry, and overall tidiness. Coshocton is registered with America in Bloom this year as a non-compete participant, and then will compete in 2011 as part of Coshocton’s bicentennial celebration.

The 4-player scramble was broken down into two divisions, Men’s and Mixed Couples, with a payout for first and second place.

have nothing but great things to say about this program. He (Devin) has talked very highly about the teachers and feels very strongly about Mr. Lear and also speaks highly of Mr. Chaney. They have helped him a lot – this is a wonderful program.” Mr. William Lear, who has worked at the Opportunity School for nine years, said, “This is my dream job. My mother and I talked about this when I was eighteen years old and working at a school for children that were having difficult times. Luckily I got the chance when Mr. Lucas called me – I jumped at the chance – and they’ll have to drag me out of here. I love working with these kids. These kids are wonderful. They come from different lifestyles and they’ve had to struggle one way or another but they all have – these kids are brilliant – some of their scores on the OGT are very high. They’re just a wonderful group of kids.”

William Lear presented the class of 2010. He also said that the Opportunity School, which is its’ own school district, graduated 3 students during the first year. This year, 48 students walked across the stage to receive their diploma. Moore said he attributed that to the hard and dedicated work of the staff.

I am back in college right now and I am so excited for him. It’s amazing, he can go anywhere. I think the program is great because there are a lot of kids that have a hard time.

are the first in their family to attend college. The students each said that the C.A.R.E.S. program helped them gain access to college, find the right school, and get a good start. Adam Stone, who is a senior at the Career Center, and plans to attend Bowling Green, said, “I want to thank Mr. Crilow for taking time out of his day to help me fill out the FAFSA, and helps me through some problems. I appreciate it greatly.” A PowerPoint presentation gave those in attendance the chance to see what has been accomplished this school year and information about the Coshocton C.A.R.E.S. college access program. Carol Stull, representing the Junior Woman’s Guild, commented about the significance of the program following the luncheon, “Because it helps the children who are our future and the future of Coshocton. It seems like the people who are involved here are very supportive, very generous of their time, when you consider that

The Coshocton C.A.R.E.S. program held an appreciation and partnership luncheon on Friday, May 21 at the Career Center. The meal was prepared and served by the culinary arts students at the Career Center. C.A.R.E.S. stands for “Community Action Resources to Educate Students” with the mission of developing and coordinating college access activities for all students in Coshocton County. Mindy Fehrman, President of the CARES board of directors, thanked everyone for attending and gave special recognition to Rick Davis, representing Coshocton Hospital, who is a major sponsor of the program, Carol Stull with the Junior Woman’s Guild and Mike Wilson of the Coshocton Elks Lodge, who both provide contributions to the program. Brian Crilow, who is the Director and Advisor of Coshocton C.A.R.E.S, gave a brief overview of the program and accomplishments for the year. Crilow told the audience, “We know that looking ahead over 80% of all jobs will need a post secondary education and that is where we can help our area students.” The program provided financial aid seminars, classes on how to complete FAFSA applications, a college fair, ACT Test Preparation, local scholarship awareness, one on one advising sessions for parents and students and more. Crilow also introduced three students who

Johnson-Humrickhouse features Chinese exhibit The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum invites you to explore contemporary Chinese culture through the special exhibit Along the Silk Road. Featuring 36 original works and eleven reproduced masterpieces, Along the Silk Road offers a compact but broad exhibition of paintings and calligraphy produced by contemporary Chinese artists living in China and the U.S. Most of the works are either oil on canvas or water and ink on rice paper, the latter often produced on scrolls, some eight-feet long. Painting styles vary from the time-honored Chinese brush painting technique with landscape and nature

caves on the cliffs. Along the top of the painting is the poem Kong wrote to express his artistic feeling about the subject. Kong is a descendant of the great Chinese philosopher Confucius and a receiver of a national “People’s Educator” award. The Flaming Mountain, an oil on canvas by Zongjiang Ding, also demands the viewer’s immediate attention. The painting was inspired by a classical Chinese novel, Journey to the West. Ding was intrigued by the lifestyle and natural environment of the Turpan area of Xinjian, in which the temperature can reach as high as 116.6 F. The painting’s central image is a blazing mountain of fire overshadowing a small village. The power and menace of the mountain stands in sharp contrast to the quiet, pale village. The dynamic colors of the mountain are mesmerizing. Along the Silk Road is on display now through Aug. 1 at the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum in Roscoe Village. The Museum is located at 300 N. Whitewoman Street, Coshocton, OH 43812. Museum hours are Noon – 5 p.m. daily. For more information call 740622-8710 or email Along the Silk Road is sponsored by the Mary F. Taylor Family Fund.

themes to European-influenced styles, Hyperrealism still lifes and Impressionist landscapes. The exhibit, curated by Yan Sun, Professor of Art at Muskingum University, will be on display through Aug. 1. For over two thousand years, the Silk Road connected the civilizations of the East and West. It started from Chang’an, the capital of the Han Dynasty (206 BC – 220 AD), and crossed through China to Middle Asia, West Asia, and then through parts of Europe before finally ending in Rome. It started as a trade route but evolved into an idea causeway that linked ancient Greek and Roman cultures with Islamic, Indian and Chinese cultures. The spirit of the Silk Road enriches our lives today and this exhibit stands as evidence of the prolific cultural exchange between East and West. Many of the exhibiting artists live along what was once the Silk Road, perhaps a verification of the long-lasting effects of cultural infusion. Along the Silk Road offers many elegant images of China and its culture. There are the simple and graceful calligraphy scrolls and intriguing country scenes. There is also a number of scrolls executed in the traditional water and ink style, many of which represent animals, a vibrant rooster, a menacing vulture, rearing horses or lounging camels, to name a few. Portraits also claim the stage as the viewer is given the change to look into the eyes of another human whose life’s story suggests the extraordinary. Upon entering the Montgomery Gallery, two works by artist Deliang Kong immediately strike the viewer, both landscapes of historical sites along the Yellow River. Painted with water and ink on rice paper, they contain the four most important components of a painting: image, poem, calligraphy and seal. His large scroll painting, Splendid Dunhuang Mogao Grottoes, presents not only the grand temple but the many

Bound for Broadway Coshocton County Career Center students received a behind-the-scenes look at Community Theater on Wednesday, May, 19. The theater tour and activity session were offered through a partnership between The Mentoring Center of Coshocton County and the Marketing and Promotion Committee of the Triple Locks Theater. Sheila Mayse, Executive Director of the Mentoring Center of Coshocton County, led twenty –eight students in a tour of the Triple Locks Theater facility, followed by a handson mask making activity, and various group demonstrations. Throughout the tour, students learned about the activities that take place in order to make a production successful. In addition, they were given the opportunity to engage in demonstrations utilizing costumes, props, and narration. Various exercises utilized as part of the audition process were also included as part of the experience. One objective of this program is to provide students with access and information about the theater as a valuable community resource. Mayse says of the project, “I really wanted students to have the chance to participate in the theater in ways they might not otherwise have the opportunity to experience.” Another objective of this program is to

emphasize creative mentoring options. As cochair of the theater’s Marketing and Promotions committee, Mayse considered how the two non-profit agencies might develop partnership activities. “I see so many opportunities for mentoring as part of the community theater experience. At the theater, mentoring occurs in nearly every aspect of the program. Veteran actors, directors, producers, and back stage crew all mentor newcomers to the theater. It involves more than just basic instruction and includes relationship building. As part of a production, the entire production crew must develop a level of trust in order to work well together, incorporating not only a level of competence, but also confidence. This was an excellent tie in for The Mentoring Center, as it is part of our vision to develop mentoring opportunities in varied and creative ways.” Mayse encourages other school and community groups to contact her to learn more any of the programs offered by The Mentoring Center of Coshocton County, including the Triple Locks theater tour program at (740) 6238110. The Mentoring Center of Coshocton County is a United Way agency.

Veterans................... continued from page 3 The Veterans Service Office will also be having a Memorial Day Service and parade in the city of Coshocton. Line-up for the parade will be at 9:30 a.m. with the parade beginning at 10 a.m. “It’s definitely a learning experience,” said Jim Barstow, Veterans Service Officer in Training, “but it’s also been a good experience being able to work with the veterans who come in and it’s a more diverse job than a lot of people realize. There’s a lot more to it than meets the eye. It’s challenging but also rewarding.” “It’s a privilege to be able to work here,” said Patty Dilly, interim office manager, “A bunch of good guys to work with and to work for. We have the five board commission members that are all willing to step in and help out and we have Memorial Day coming up. That’s a big thing for us here. It’s just a rewarding job to be able to work with these three good guys in here.” The Coshocton County Veterans Service Office also works with Kno-Ho-Co, Red Cross, and the Salvation Army. Their office can be reached at 622-2313 or visit their Web site for more information at agency/vet. Their office is open Monday – Friday 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Millfork Valley 4-H meeting notes The Millfork Valley 4-H Club met on May 11 at Roscoe United Methodist Church at 7 p.m. Under old business, the club discussed project books and Quality Assurance sessions. They also talked about their plans to adopt a serviceman, work at the concession stand at the llama show on June 26, and club plans to help clean up after the Relay for Life on May 15. New business included discount cards the club will be selling and changes in Public Speaking and Cooking State Fair programs. Programs for the night were Healthy Hand Washing by Kendra Walsh and Davina Stroia and Safety: An EMS Truck by Michael Ashcraft and Cord Stottlemire. Millfork Valley’s next meeting was May 25, at which club members placed flags on veterans’ graves.

Lawrence, “and we are thankful they are there for us.” Wise expressed his sincere thanks to all the REACT members for their efforts at the memorial park, and to a number of others including Lori Everhart, Dave Bush at Hathaway Construction, Garden Patch, Jackson Twp Fire Department, Prince’s Wrecker Service, Coshocton Fire Department, The Coshocton Sheriff’s Department, Carter Lumber, Wal-Mart, H & H Auto Body, Harold Haines, Adam Haines, Kevin Haines, Jim Cognion, Marty at Rent-All, Finton John Deere, Harmon Welding, Frontier Power, R & K Industrial Supply and NGO National Gas & Oil. “I also want to especially thank REACT member Jim McCurdy for all the long hours that made this park possible,” said Wise. “Jim has been a REACT member for over 35 years and he is now facing a life-threatening illness. We are planning a benefit fundraiser for him on Saturday, June 5 at River View High School, beginning at 7:00 a.m. with a pancake breakfast. There will also be a poker run, cornhole tournament, spaghetti dinner and an auction.” Jim McCurdy says that through his volunteering with REACT he has seen a lot of bad accidents. “I try to put them into the back of my mind but it’s hard,” he said. “It especially bothers me when I see an accident where someone dies due to alcohol.” McCurdy says he really hopes the community enjoys the newly revitalized park space at the REACT Memorial Park. “I have enjoyed helping people in their times of need the past 36 years with REACT,” he said. “I knew I wanted to be a part of the organization back when I first saw what all they’d done. I like to help people, so it has been perfect for me. Our group is like a family. We know we can count on each other.”
