Large Crowd Thrills to Hot Air Balloon Nightglow! By Mark Fortune

A fairground’s that was packed with balloon enthusiasts, families and festival lovers were thrilled to see nearly twenty hot air balloons launch despite a steady surface wind last Saturday evening. The 27th annual Frontier Power Hot Air Balloon Festival was another success for our community. The hard work and many hours of meetings by committee members paid off for local attendees and those that made the trek from other parts of the state with a flawless launch and wonderful opportunities for photographs. (Remember to enter the photo contest next year!)

Following the launch, Phil Dirt and the Dozers entertained an enthusiastic crowd with tunes from the 50’s, 60’s and more. And yes, vinyl is going to make a comeback someday. Then, the hot air balloon nightglow oohed and awed the crowd as blasts of propane filled the balloons with bright orange, yellow and red tongues of flame. It is a spectacle that everyone should see at least once in their lifetime! This brings us to the next point of this article. The sheer amount of activities that was available over the weekend of June 6, 7 and 8 in Coshocton County. I


am sure that our list is incomplete so my apologies in advance for missing anything. For example, the weekend mentioned above had the Cherokees baseball team playing in a tournament at Lake Park, church softball on Friday evening, camping, swimming, walking, biking and even paddle-boating at Lake Park with swimming also available in Warsaw, West Lafayette and Forest Hills. Roscoe Village was host to the annual corvette show which gives auto enthusiasts and especially corvette

lovers’ ample opportunity to get up close and personal with the favorite American muscle car. Friday evening had the second First Friday event of the year in downtown Coshocton, the Farmer’s Market at the fairgrounds and the old Fresno school. These farmer’s markets provide fresh vegetables, crafts, sweets and other goodies sure to tempt on Saturday mornings. Now, this article wouldn’t be complete without mentioning those that prefer to smack that little white ball into the cup – and our county is blessed with four beautiful golf courses. Hiking, biking, fishing or boating, you can do it all in Coshocton County. For the gardener or someone that may prefer a quieter weekend or summer evening, the enjoyment of watching birds from a deck or patio cannot be underestimated. And what about gardening and flowers that bring a smile? I think you get the idea by now that there is PLENTY to do right here in our own county and a lot of the activities are good, old-fashioned family fun that is FREE! With gas prices hovering around $4.00 per gallon, it makes good sense to consider your own backyard as a summer playground and with that in mind we have devoted an entire 8 page section in this edition of The Beacon to “Summer Sun and Fun Around Our Area.” Please see pages 9 to 16 to find out more about what Coshocton County has to offer this summer. Enjoy.

continue to explore in more detail what our county has to offer – which is much. We have history, shopping, dining, plentiful outdoor recreation opportunities, arts and culture. We have a lot to be thankful for, including the fact that Midwest Living magazine recently named Coshocton “one of the Top 100 towns to visit.” Speaking of why we are listed in the top 100, did you get to the Balloon Festival this past weekend? The Saturday evening launch was one of the most memorable (besides the year I rode in a balloon!) that I can recall and the nightglow provided a lot of smiles, oohs and aahs from the crowd. Frontier Power deserves a lot of credit for supporting this free community event along with the committee members, balloon sponsors, entertainment sponsors and all those that simply volunteered their time and talent to continue this event – now in its’ 27th year. We appreciate your continued positive comments about The Beacon. We know that the biggest room in the house is always the room for improvement, and we continue to seek your input as to how we can accomplish that goal. We want to keep the news in The Beacon fresh and entertaining because we know this will keep you coming back for more. Thank you for reading Coshocton County’s locally owned newspaper!

We are excited to bring you the fourth edition of The Coshocton County Beacon! As gas prices continue to climb, many are being forced to rethink travel and vacation plans, among other necessities. Since our publication is intended to put a positive slant on things, we opted to take a decidedly “glass is half full” view on gas prices and their impact on the economy – specifically, our local economy. This issue of The Beacon contains an eight page section titled, “Summer Sun & Fun Around Our Area” and is meant to give Coshoctonians a brief glimpse into what our own county has to offer. From historical sites to art galleries to wineries to outdoor opportunities, our very own backyard may be the perfect place to start, and finish, your vacation. We included a mileage chart to give you an idea of what it costs to travel out of town – we used the Coshocton County Courthouse as our point of origin – and also give you an idea of what it costs to travel within our area. We also included an article on shopping local with a few examples of items available CORRECTION locally that you may be tempted Kirstie Kolmerten – or even think should have been listed in the you have to top 5% of the students for – shop out of Ridgewood High School. town for.

We thank the Coshocton County Beacon for the opportunity to share some of our current projects and concerns. For this first article, we will highlight several issues. In the months to come, we will devote the article to, and expand upon the subject being discussed. We are taking a pro-active stance here in the county commissioner’s office. W are constantly looking at ways to improve, update, economize, and re-assess the concerns and issues of Coshocton County. We feel we can have a definite impact on economic development by the decisions we make. Currently we are in the process of moving Coshocton County EmergencyMedical Services (EMS) back to being a county agency. We feel this is important as it keeps levy monies used in the county instead of shipping your tax dollars to Columbus to a company to

manage a local service. It is a dedicated, professional group of individuals that shoulder the responsibility to be on call 24/7 to respond to our emergency needs. We are constantly working on infrastructure issues. As this goes to print, water lines are being laid to bring potable water to Lake Park. We are working on developing a wastewater treatment system for the Fresno community, which is under an Ohio Environmental Protection Agency mandate to be in compliance with current regulations. We are in the process of finalizing legal documents to advertise for a commercial provider to make high speed broadband internet available for rural Coshocton County. This is being made possible by way of an agreement recently signed with the State of Ohio that allows the county commissioners to lease numerous state public safety towers for this purpose. We are also constantly trying to help speed the process of bringing better cell phone service to our area. We are in daily contact with the Coshocton Port authority to try and retain jobs and bring new employment to the area. We fully support the Columbus - Pittsburgh corridor committee whose work, we hoped, will one day lead to the completion of the Ohio 16 Dresden - Coshocton link. One of the big concerns facing us is the need for a new adult detention center (jail). There is no question that the current facility is not in compliance with state regulations. We also know that we will eventually be forced by the state to build one to their specifications if we do not take the issue into our own hands and build it for what our needs are. We know that the citizens of our

Millfork Valley 4-H Club Completes Monument Project The Millfork Valley 4-H Club recently held a commemoration to observe the

placing of an engraved marker at the site of the former Warner Methodist Episcopal Church and cemetery. The event was attended by members of the club, local dignitaries and families that have been involved with the church including the most recent Pastor, Herb Bundy. Warner Church and cemetery is located in Jackson Township at the intersection of County Road 6 and Township Road 282. The church was organized in 1870 by the Rev. S.R. Surie and membership in 1881 was sixty-six. The earliest burial date found on a tombstone is Margaret Markley who passed in 1855. Coshocton County Commissioner Gary L. Fischer read a proclamation honoring the club for helping to “preserve part of our county’s rich history” and especially some of our forgotten cemeteries. The current owner of the property is Ernie Davis who assisted the project by digging and pouring the footer for the monument. Steve Dawson worked with the club on engraving of the monument and several financial donors helped contribute to the $1200 dollars needed for the project. These included; Ohio Heritage Bank, Sportzone, WTNS, Norman Stubbs family, Coshocton County Chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society, Stanley and Orleta Bainter, Phillip Bainter, Joan Johnson, Bill & Caroyl Jean Neff. The club held a bake sale at Wal-Mart in April and received matching funds from Wal-Mart. The club completed the fundraising by using some of their own funds.

The Hugh O’Brian Youth leadership (HOBY) was established in 1958 by popular actor Hugh O’ Brian following a visit to Africa where he was inspired by a meeting with Dr. Albert Schweitzer. HOBY Leadership Seminars bring together a select group of high school sophomores from public and private high schools to interact with groups of distinguished leaders in business, government, education and the professions to discuss present and future issues. The goal is to provide the youths a stimulating forum for learning about critical issues while broadening their understanding of their leadership potential and quest for self-development. Since 1958, Hoby has been part of more than 365,000 student’s lives, many of whom continue to volunteer on HOBY seminar planning committees, in their local communities, and in schools to keep the HOBY spirit alive.

Granville, OH- Taylor Gibson of Warsaw, Ohio, recently attended the Ohio South Site of the Hugh O‘Brian Youth (HOBY) Leadership Seminar May 15-18, at Denison University. Taylor, representing River View High School, joined more than 190 high school sophomores from central and southeastern Ohio to take part in a weekend-long seminar that aims to teach youths how to think, rather than what to think. “One of the things [Albert] Schweitzer said to me was that the most important thing in education was to teach young people to think for themselves,” actor and founder Hugh O’Brian said. “From that inspiration, and with the support of others who believe in youth and the American dream, I started HOBY to seek out, recognize, and develop outstanding leadership potential among our nation’s youth” Taylor was chosen to attend the seminar based upon demonstrated leadership and potential for continued leadership growth.

Monticello III Canal Boat Take a ride on the Monticello III Canal Boat (www. or 740-622-7528).

The boat departs hourly from 1-5p.m. Friday through Sunday, and 1-3 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday through Labor Day (closed Mondays).

Rick’s hammered dulcimer playing will get your feet tapping, your hands clapping, and your heart dancing.

Along with teaching workshops on mountain dulcimer, Bing is an accomplished filmmaker, podcaster

and published writer.

Helmick Covered Bridge

Old Stone Fort

From US 26 take SR 60 N toward Blissfield, then right on CR 343. Originally built in 1863 at a cost of $2,107, this covered bridge was an integral part of commerce in the village of Helmick. The bridge provided access to two grist mills used by farmers from as far as 25 miles away. The bridge fell into decay and was closed in 1981. Citizens raised a total of $250,000 to restore the bridge and completed the project in 1996.

Located near Orange in Oxford Twp.; take SR 751 south to CR 254. This mysterious structure is presumed by many to have been built by the French explorer D’Iberville, one of LaSalle’s aides, who is thought to have followed along the Muskingum and Tuscarawas Rivers between 1679 and 1689. In 1952, it was restored by the Coshocton County Historical Society.

Whitewoman’s Rock

East on US 36 to West Lafayette. Turn right on SR 93 and follow to railroad tracks. Monument immediately on left. This monument stands in memory of 33 members of the 109th Field Artillery Battalion, Pennsylvania National Guard who were killed in the tragic train wreck in West Layafette on September 11, 1950. The memorial was dedicated to the many citizens of Coshocton County who aided in the early morning rescue effort

Troop Train Memorial


West of US 36, turn right on CR 23, cross the Walhonding River and turn immediately left. Whitewoman’s Rock is on private property, but the top can be seen in the tree lines on the left. The truth about what happened there is hard to pinpoint, but popular legend claims that in the 1750’s a white girls captive of a Delaware warrior broke away from him and leaped to her death in the Walhonding River rather than succumb to life as a captive. The towering rock she leaped from has since been called Whitewoman’s Rock.

He also says that clocks for the home also make practical and affordable gifts. “We have clocks for just about every room in your home – mantle clocks, kitchen clocks, alarm clocks for the bedroom and even novelty clocks for family or game rooms.” Fisher also says that they sell quite of few gifts for the wedding party itself. “Bracelets and necklaces are common for bridesmaids, depending on the neckline of their dresses.” Popular gifts for groomsmen, according to Fisher, include tie bars or tacks, money clips, knives and digital clocks. These items can also be engraved, which makes them memorable keepsakes for the recipient. Fisher says there is really no need to travel outside Coshocton for purchases like these. “If we don’t have exactly what you want, we can order items that


With the price of gasoline expected to exceed $ 4.00 per gallon, many Coshoctonians are rethinking the need to travel for their product and services purchases, particularly when buying personal and household items or gifts for others. Is it actually more affordable in the long run to stay local? When a typical round-trip journey to Zanesville, Mount Vernon or New Philadelphia can cost close to $20 – not including the cost of wear and tear on your vehicle - it pays to rethink the option of shopping locally. Additionally, when you take your business outside the county, you remove the power of that money staying in our local economy. For those of us concerned with our county’s future and wanting to take an active part in its success, shopping locally is an easy commitment to make. So what types of purchases should we rethink? Consider, for starters, a

can be shipped within two days and, in many cases, overnight.” The House of G.A. Fisher also provides impeccable and complimentary gift-wrapping services and free delivery within city limits. Fisher says they take pride in meeting their local customers’ needs. Another reason to stay local for your fine jewelry needs is located on Main Street in downtown Coshocton. Michelle Turner of Dean’s Jewelry states that they “offer a variety of jewelry from everyday fun sterling to a high fashion, ever changing 18k designer line. We also feature over 70 loose diamonds with up to 2 carats in stock. If we don’t have what you are looking for we can get it in within a couple of days.” Turner also told us that they are currently buying gold and diamonds. When asked if they have noticed any impact on that special wedding day from the economy, Turner stated that “Someone’s wedding day will always be treated as a very special day and we see that people are still willing to recognize that with their investment.” Dean’s offers an entire diamond line and believes in being a strong participant in the local community, with First Friday being one of the more popular events they have committed to. Recently opening in Mount Vernon, Turner mentioned that before expanding, they searched for a community with the spirit and community involvement like Coshocton. What other items, most commonly

purchased outside Coshocton, can you consider for local purchasing? Many choose summer months to update their homes and gardens. How about starting at Taylor Hardware. Many don’t know that Taylors now sells Frigidaire appliances. “We’ve been offering Frigidaire appliances for around six or seven months now,” says owner Todd Taylor. Frigidaire, he says, offers good quality mid to upperend appliances such as washers, dryers, oven/range units and refrigerators. But, isn’t it better to visit a larger appliance and electronics store in a larger metroplex to make these purchases? Often, this is a misconception. According to Taylor, manufacturers take a large quantity overstocked items and spread them across stores like these, offering superlow advertised prices to get customers in the door. “These sellers advertise a very attractive price for a particular unit,” he says, “but, they may only have one or two of those advertised items available. Ninety percent of the time you’re not going to buy what you came into their store to see.” It’s called upselling and it’s a common practice in the industry. The key, Taylor says, is to know the specific features you want before shopping. “If you compare what you really want,” he says, “most of the time we can match their prices pretty closely.” And Taylor’s can arrange for competitive financing, too. Taylor’s is a full-service hardware store, which means they offer plumbing,

They also offer flexible purchasing options including lay-away and 12-month-same-as-cash financing plans. Wilson says that what they offer, though not as extensive as a larger furniture stores, is broad enough to offer customers a nice selection while still keeping prices competitive. Auer Ace Hardware is another one of our local businesses that features a variety of products that can allow you to enjoy the summer either through working – or relaxation – depending on your view of things! Auer Ace Hardware features over 125 top quality Cannondale bicycles among other popular brands. Currently, Cannondale models over $500 are made here in America. Prices range from $49 to $2500 for the truly luxurious ride. So, you CAN consider helping support your local community AND save gas at the same time! They also feature Stihl brand products, becoming a Stihl dealer over a year ago. So if you’re looking to do some serious yard or farm work, and a chain saw or other home improvement item is what you’re looking for, visit Auer Ace Hardware on Otsego Avenue in Coshocton. Whatever you’re looking for, give your hometown marketplace a second glance. You just might be surprised by the good you’ll do yourself and your community – by keeping your purchases local. (Publisher’s Note: this article is intended to give you a glimpse into what a few of our local businesses have to offer. It is by no means a complete list of what they, or other, local merchants and organizations have to offer our community. We will be exploring more of your options, and what you can find closer to home, in future editions of The Beacon.)

Wilson’s carries upholstered furniture, tables and dinettes by Liberty and Vaughan-Bassett bedding suites made in the U.S.A.

Of particular note is the fact that Wilson’s became a Lazyboy Comfort Studio in March of this year. This means they carry the complete line of products - from recliners, sleepers and reclining sofas to stationary Lazyboy items - for the home. “When we became a Lazyboy Comfort Studio,” Wilson says, “we stepped up our offerings a notch.” Wilson explains that with this next level of commitment to Lazyboy, the company came in to completely redesign their showroom, helping them attractively display the best of their

GOBA is Good for Coshocton By Jan Myers

The Great Ohio Bicycle Adventure(GOBA) will be returning to Coshocton and setting up camp at Lake Park next Wednesday through Friday (June 18-20), bringing with them over 2,500 bicyclists from all over the country and Canada. This is the third year for GOBA to make overnight stops in Coshocton. The first being in 1992 and the other year was 1999. The unique annual tour which highlights a different area of Ohio each year is organized by Columbus Outdoor Pursuits and is sponsored by Bob Evans Farms, Inc. The profits from the tour are designated to benefit bicycling programs in Ohio. Participants pay $170 for the eight-day trip, and travel approximately 50 miles each day, visiting many of Ohio’s tourist attractions, parks and historical sites. Each evening, a campground is set up in a host community where the riders can eat, sleep and enjoy local entertainment. As a two-night layover host community, Coshocton is responsible for coordinating the campground, transportation, emergency planning, housing, food, entertainment, and an information booth. Amy Hasseman and Russ Fehrman are Coshocton’s Town Coordinators and they are working with an extensive committee of volunteers. Volunteers are still needed for various areas. Contact Amy at 622-7424 to make GOBA’s experience in Coshocton a memorable one that hopefully will encourage the participants to make a return visit to Coshocton in the future. The riders are expected to arrive between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday and are scheduled to leave Friday morning. Belinda Williamson from the

Coshocton Convention and Visitors Bureau is heading up the information booth that will be set up at the ‘GOBAville’ camp at Lake Park. She says there are many things planned for the GOBA participants to do while they are here. “We have organized numerous activities for GOBA and highlighted many of our services for them to utilize while they are here,” said Williamson. “You might see them at the library using the internet, or stopping at Kids America to work out, or taking a ride on the canal boat. We are providing a shuttle from Lake Park to various stops throughout the community so that it will be easy for them to get to the places they’d like to go.” Some of the activities that are planned for the GOBA visitors include an art gallery hop, Shawnee Springs wine and cheese tasting, entertainment at the Old Warehouse Restaurant, special tours at Roscoe Village, spaghetti dinner at Roscoe United Methodist Church, Raven’s Glenn Winery tour, a GOBA beach party at the Aquatic Center, special tours of the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum, and entertainment with Joe Banana and the Bunch. “A favorite for breakfast is the Chris Cakes Pancake Breakfast that will be served from 5:30 a.m. – 8:30 a.m. at the Lake Park Pavilion on Thursday and Friday mornings,” said Williamson. “Anyone can stop in for breakfast on those mornings. Proceeds from the breakfast will benefit The Friends of the Park. We hope all of Coshocton will help us welcome the GOBA riders to our community. You just never know who might be on this tour. There could be someone riding who is looking to expand his company and may like what he sees here in our county. GOBA is good for Coshocton and we are happy they are returning.”

Register for Ohio 4-H Shooting Education Camp

Registration for the statewide 11th annual Ohio 4-H Shooting Education Camp, July 13-18, is now open. An exciting week of shooting instruction and special programs is planned at Canters Cave 4-H Camp in Jackson, Ohio. Youth between 12 and 18 years of age, both 4-H and non-4-H members, are eligible to attend. Certified, experienced 4-H Shooting Sports instructors teach all shooting disciplines. In 2007, over 160 campers from 41 counties across Ohio participated in camp. Newer discipline additions include a Pistol Level 2 class and Heritage Hunting, Trapping, Fishing class. In Pistol 2, a skill development course, participants will begin to develop their personal shooting style using intermediate and advanced skills to improve their accuracy at greater distances. Heritage Hunting, Trapping & Fishing activities and skills may include: shooting muzzleloaders; exploring historic traps and trapping skills; preparing pelts or hides; making historic fish hooks and a fishing kit; outdoor cooking; and making a turkey wing bone call. See discipline descriptions on the web site for prerequisites and age requirements. Seven disciplines provide opportunities for beginning as well as experienced shooters to learn new techniques and practice good shooting form. Beginning instruction is offered in archery, .22 rifle, .22 pistol, shotgun, muzzle loading, hunting, and Living History. Instruction for experienced shooters and archers is also offered in archery, rifle and pistol, shotgun, and Living History. Shotgun 3, 4, & 5 offers instruction in skeet, trap and other shotgun games. Living History 2 participants create a leather rifleman’s bag and forge a vent pick. Living History 3 offers opportunities to build a frontier-style knife. Living History Rendezvous allows campers to practice frontier skills necessary for daily survival. For detailed descriptions of each discipline and entry requirements, visit the Shooting Education Camp pages on the web at, or contact Sarah Jane Lindsey, 4-H Educator, at the OSU Extension Office at 622-2265. Campers receive group and individualized shooting instruction during

their major discipline for nearly 3 hours each morning. Emphasis is placed on developing safety habits and good shooting techniques to build a foundation for a lifetime of shooting success. A hearty lunch in the cool dining hall is followed by a half hour of review of morning discoveries and/or journaling. Many choices are available to campers to fill their afternoon hours: swimming, crafts, High Ropes, repelling, fishing, canoeing or just relaxing with friends. Evening programming offers shooting samplers that allow campers to try various shooting equipment and disciplines. Exhibition shooting by professional shooters is on tap for one evening as is the traditional Lethal Impact demonstration, which emphasizes good decision-making and the power of firearms and bows. Competition is minimized during morning shooting instruction. Emphasis is always on the shooter improving his or her personal best. On Thursday the Shawnee Run and the Triathlon [archery, rifle, pistol] give campers plenty of opportunities for their talents to shine. The Shawnee Run might best be described as a frontiersman Olympics where participants shoot arrows at 3-D targets, fire a muzzleloader, throw tomahawks,, paddle canoes, create sparks with flint and steel, and use a slingshot, all while running from station to station. The Triathlon is very competitive as participants shoot from stationary points using bows, .22 pistols, and .22 rifles. Last year the shooting was so close that the most accurate archers determined the final winners. The 6-day camp fee includes all meals, room, activities, and ammo. Paid registration by June 15 is $250. After June 15, include $295 with registration which is subject to space availability. Disciplines are filled based on the date paid registration is received so register early to improve chances of being placed in your first-choice discipline. Registration forms and information may be downloaded at but must be submitted with payment by mail. You can also contact the local OSU/county Extension Office for registration forms. • Classified Hotline 622-4237

Farmer, Irene Miller, Coshocton County Clerk of Courts, (not pictured) Judge W. Scott Gwin. Coshocton County Clerk of Courts, Irene Miller, hosted the Fifth District Court of Appeals Clerk of Courts Seminar at Raven’s Glenn on May 21, 2008. The Ohio Court of Appeals were established in 1851 by the Ohio Constitution and given the function to hear appeals from the common pleas, municipal and county courts as well as Board of Tax Appeals and other administrative agencies within their districts.

The Fifth District, being the largest in population in the state, consists of the following counties; Coshocton, Delaware, Fairfield, Guernsey, Holmes, Knox, Licking, Morgan, Morrow, Muskingum, Perry, Richland, Stark and

Tuscarawas. The Fifth District Court of Appeals consists of six, elected judges. All judges were presenters at the training seminar, assisted by staff attorneys, and administrative assistants. The judges travel to each of the counties in their district so that cases are heard at least one annually in each of the district’s fifteen counties. In 2007 a total of 1,200 cases were filed in the court, 145 Opinions per judge were written and each judge handled 209 cases, with criminal cases being the largest number of cases. All fifteen counties were represented at the seminar which consisted of topics from Appeals Procedures, the Trial Court Clerk Responsibilities, Pro Se Litigants and the Perils of Unauthorized Practice of Law.

Area Fifth & Sixth Graders Participate in Earth Day!

650 fifth and sixth graders from four area school districts; Coshocton, River View, Ridgewood and Tri-Valley recently enjoyed a beautiful spring day at the Muskingum Valley Scout Reservation to observe AEP Earth Day. This is the ninth year for the event sponsored by American Electric Power. Normally, the event is held at the plant but ongoing construction at the AEP Conesville Generating Station caused the move to the MVSR. Retired employee, Jim Gill, offered to partner the MVSR with AEP and the tradition of Earth Day continued! Over 50 AEP plant employees were involved in the activity this year and their participation helps make the event a huge learning process for the students. AEP donations to the MVSR included stocking the pond with fish, donated materials for one group of scouts to build bat houses that will be placed at the Boy Scout Camp and presented the Boy Scout Camp with a Stihl chainsaw. Over 15 area agencies and groups helped provide the activities for Earth Day; including Smurfit-Stone Container, Coshocton County Soil and Water Conservation District, Coshocton County Recycling and Litter Prevention, ODNR Department of Wildlife, Army

One stroke back at 63 were David and Linda Near with Ed and Linda Connell. Third place was Cindy Nye, John Bates, Bonnie and John Ramshaw. The teams of Lori Bubenchik-Don Darr, Linda-David Near, Rhonda Barlan-Mark Waller all tied first place for low 2-somes at 67, 5 under par. The next mixed doubles event is Sunday August 3rd.

Corps of Engineers – Wills Creek Dam, Department of Agriculture – North Appalachian Watershed, OEPA Department of Emissions, OEPA Department of Surface Water and Muskingum County NRCS. Local members of the community also jumped in; Dave Woodmansee with Indian Artifacts, Don Norman discussed edible plants, Fenders’ Fish Hatchery stocking the Boating Pond with largemouth bass, White Amur and Crappies. Mr. and Mrs. Dan Jenkins showed the youth how trained border collies herd sheep and ducks and Manon Van Schoyck with Ohio Nature Education discussed Birds of Prey with the students. Perhaps one of the more “interesting” displays was from Nicole Hafer of the Muskingum County NRCS with reptiles! AEP donated the area of land currently used by the MVSR to the council with the reservation opening in 1968. The Muskingum Valley Scout Reservation consists of 511 acres of reclaimed property with acres of trails, 10 campsites and 3 Adirondacks. Anyone that has visited the Scout Reservation knows that it is one of the gems of Coshocton County and has provided many a youth with knowledge, adventure, fun and learning.
